Who is ready for some further Law & Order: SVU season 19 episode title? There isn’t a whole lot of news out there on the show, so we’ll take what we can.
Today, what that entails is the title for what could end up being the second episode. (Production sometimes films out of order, so we don’t want to act as though anything is necessarily 100% certain.) In a new post on Twitter, returning writer and co-producer Allison Intrieri confirmed that “Mood” is the name for the second episode this season. That is about as obscure a name as you are going to find for an episode, given that it can mean a wide array of different things in terms of emotions or reactions. It could mean how someone is doing in the past or in the present. Given that it is fairly early in the season, the biggest thing that we are confident about one way or another is that it’s going to be thrilling. Some of the biggest episodes of the show tend to happen both early on and close to the end of the road.
Intrieri is coming onto this season after spending this past year working as a writer and executive story editor over on Chicago Justice — she is following over Michael Chernuchin, who was the showrunner on that edition of the One Chicago franchise before being hired to take on the reigns at SVU. Meanwhile, the most-recent SVU showrunner Rick Eid is now over on Chicago PD, where he will be running that show. At this point, it is almost like musical chairs following around all of the various people.
As a writer, Allison previous wrote two episodes in “Responsible” (2007) and “Clock” (2007) — it only makes sense that she returns for what is a rare episode these days with only one word in the title. We’ve probably broken down far too much over the years the ever-changing nature of SVU titles; for example, during the Warren Leight era it was almost entirely two-word titles that dominated the show.
SVU returns this fall on NBC, and hopefully at some point in the weeks ahead we do learn more about the cases that Benson and the other heroes are going to be working to resolve. You need strong cases for the show to work, but we remain hopeful that there is also a chance to see some interesting storylines for the characters away from work. That is another key part of the fabric.
