‘Law & Order: SVU’ season 16 finale spoilers: One powerful Mariska Hargitay story

Law & Order: SVU logoYou have seen quite a bit of drama throughout “Law & Order: SVU” season 16, and there have been times where we have seen Olivia Benson fear for her foster child Noah’s safety. Unfortunately, little of that may compare to the events of next week’s finale. With a title like “Surrendering Noah,” you know that this is going to be all sorts of intense.

Before we do anything else, let’s go ahead and describe per the synopsis a little of what you can expect:

“Sgt. Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and ADA Barba (Raúl Esparza) take Johnny D (guest star Charles Halford) to trial for sex trafficking, rape, assault and kidnapping. But when Baby Noah’s adoption becomes entangled in the case, Benson fears for Noah’s future and his safety. In an intense courtroom showdown, the SVU will face a threat that could change the squad forever.”

The promo for the episode below is perhaps a little bit more specific, if for no other reason than that it shows Mariska Hargitay’s character learning that Noah’s biological father is trying to get back in the picture, and is willing to do anything that he can in order to ensure that he gets his way. Unfortunately for Benson, this means resorting to violence and threatening to shoot up a courthouse. There is no guarantee that everything will be all right in this episode, though by the end of it we may have answers on if Benson’s adoption is official.

What do you want to see on the “SVU” finale, and what do you think is going to happen to Benson both personally and professionally? Give us some of your early thoughts / predictions in the comments.
