‘Law & Order: SVU’ season 16 finale spoilers: Prepare for something emotional

Law & Order: SVU logoA week from Wednesday, “Law & Order: SVU” is going to air their 16th season finale, and just as you wound expect with a title like “Surrendering Noah,” things are going to get more than a little bit emotional.

For this latest tease on this very subject, we turn to none other than series star Mariska Hargitay. In a post on Twitter, you can see precisely what happened by the time we reached the end of the story. Translation? Yeah, you are probably going to weep. Let’s just hope that they are either tears of joy, or at least relief that nothing terrible happens to Baby Noah. The child becomes involved in a dangerous case, and given how much he and Benson have been through already, can’t we just have them happy at this point? Unfortunately at the moment, that seems to be so much easier said than actually done.

As for whether or not there could be a cliffhanger here, the answer to that is “it’s possible.” “SVU” has already been renewed for a 17th season, and this was ordered long enough ago that almost everyone would have a chance to adequately prepare for it in some shape or form. Personally, we prefer something a little more definitive with this show, mostly because this is one of the few procedurals that really gets the standalone episode right. Much of that is due to the writers’ ability to tell stories that still stand out week after week.

We will have further news on the finale before it ends up airing, so stay tuned.
