During the first 12 years of Law & Order: SVU, viewers were watching as Mariska Hargitay’s characters, Olivia Benson and Christopher Meloni’s Elliot Stabler, were sharing big moments in the drama. However, the actor’s departure disappointed all fans. But, his unexpected return with a new drama in the show’s 23rd season has shown how they reconnected in one of the best scenes yet.
So far, the new spin-off drama Law & Order: Organized Crime and Law & Order: SVU have participated in only one crossover event during their concurrent 23rd and 2nd seasons. Where we see how a trial is covered against Richard Wheatley (Dylan McDermott), who was the man who murdered Elliot Stabler’s wife with a bomb in her car in the first episode of her comeback, Kathy Stabler (Isabel Gillies).
Admittedly, it’s not the most romantic moment of the episodes, as Captain Benson and Stabler deal with the jury’s agony in Kathy’s deadlocked trial and some very personal legal betrayals followed by the troubles her daughter Eli finds herself in. Stabler (Nicky Torchia) embroiled in a murder investigation.
However, among all that anguish and despair, the most anticipated couple of all Law & Order: SVU fans manage to spend some time together, although they have to spend it visiting Kathy’s grave on the late woman’s birthday together with the friends. Stabler’s sons.
But, what caught the attention of the fans and the reason why they considered the best scene of Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, was because there is a soft flirtation and a lot of warmth in that tender moment, even in those tense circumstances. Because the last time both characters saw each other he looked totally different, especially because of his slime. Check out the shocking scene below.
“You shaved. It’s nice to see your face,” Benson notes.
“About time,” Meloni replies.
Without a doubt, the easy familiarity and warmth between the actors definitely defines who the two are as partners and friends. Now, fans are looking forward to seeing how the characters will gradually establish a romance as the seasons of Law & Order: Organized Crime and Law & Order: SVU progress.
There are only two episodes left from season 23 of Law & Order: SVU, while Law & Order: Organized Crime also has the same number, but its from season 2. So it is possible that the last chapters show us some event that will surprise everyone to open the next deliveries.
