According to TVLine, a classmate of Miller’s character Isaiah Holmes is under investigation. As a result ADA Dominick Carisi Jr. (Peter Scanavino) asks Holmes for help.
These two characters interacted when Miller appeared in season 21. In that episode the focus was on the wrongful conviction of a closeted gay man (Guillermo Diaz). When Holmes was asked to look into the investigation by Carisi, he asked if the request was a result of him being gay.
Carisi said the assignment has to do with Holmes’ sense of justice, as not all of his colleagues possess one.
