After a decade of anticipation among viewers, Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson and Christopher Meloni’s Elliot Stabler reunited Thursday night.
No spoilers here, but the “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” former detective partners and beloved platonic pair came together to kick off a spinoff for Meloni titled “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”
The three-hour cusp events had been eagerly awaited by those who have wasted their characters’ interaction.
“Law & Order: SVU” premiered in 1999 with Hargitay and Meloni starring as investigators of gender crimes. It is a spinoff of the original “Law & Order” (which ended after 20 seasons in 2010) and is in its 22nd season with Hargitay at the helm.
