Is Law & Order: SVU new tonight on NBC? Following the intense episode that aired on NBC just one week ago, we understanding wanting more.
Unfortunately, patience is going to be a virtue at the moment — after all, there is no new installment coming on the air tonight. You will get a chance to see a powerful installment next week, though, one revolving around two teenage girls and her father. While things may look one way at first to the SVU team, a larger question is going to rise over the course of the episode: Could the two girls actually be responsible for something terrible that happens to their dad? SVU has some rather-twisted cases, so we wouldn’t be shocked if this one fits the bill, as well.
Oh, and we should also mention that Amanda Rollins is getting very close to welcoming her new baby on the show, as well.
Now, let’s get to the news that we first discussed in the title, and news that was also posted on Twitter via none other than series regular Ice-T. According to a new report via TVLine, former Blue Bloods and NCIS cast member Jennifer Esposito will be appearing on the upcoming February 14 installment of SVU as Sergeant Phoebe Baker. What do we know about her? Well, she runs the Vice squad and beyond that, she works alongside the SVU team in order to ensure that they can take on some pop-up brothels.
If you do love great performances, getting Esposito on board the show feels pretty perfect — she’s also got experience filming in New York and we have to imagine that there are viewers of SVU who also watch some of these other shows. We know that there are a number of familiar faces popping up on the NBC show throughout the next few weeks, and hopefully Jennifer is of the sort who can actually appear in multiple episodes. That’s certainly not something that you see with every single character who pops up within the SVU world. After all, many of them play victims, criminals, or other people who you only expect to turn up for a given week.
Basically, we’re at the halfway point of the season right now, and why that matters to us more than anything else is simple: It means that there is still plenty of room to be excited throughout most of the next few weeks.
