Let’s be honest — the past few weeks have been TORTURE of the worst kind. We’ve known that this Benson – Stabler reunion would be happening, but there was no way to make the time move any faster.
Luckily, the time for waiting is just about at an end! Tonight starting at 9:00 p.m. Eastern, the moment for Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni is going to be finally here. The action is going to start over on SVU before eventually heading over to Law & Order: Organized Crime, the new series that will show a very different side to Elliot Stabler. To better prepare you, why not check out the fun video courtesy of Meloni below? It’s a reminder of the close relationship between him and Hargitay — even though Chris hasn’t been a part of the franchise in years, the two maintained a bond and this reunion has to be a thrill. We’re also rather pleased to know that this is not the only crossover between SVU and Organized Crime we’re going to get this year.
