Law & Order: SVU Spoilers: Mariska Hargitay And Chris Meloni Tease Fans, Benson And Stabler Get ‘Closer’
Law & Order: SVU spoilers reveal that Christopher Meloni’s exit as Detective Elliot Stabler shocked fans. It was surprising because many fans couldn’t imagine Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) without Stabler. Melon is returning for a guest appearance, but fans would love to see it more permanent. Both actors got fans all riled up with “closer” pictures.
Christopher Meloni’s Exit
Law & Order: SVU spoilers reveal Meloni joined the series when it began in 1999. He was a regular fixture on our TV screens (and next to partner Benson) until 2011. Even though some fans thought Benson and Stabler belonged together as a couple, they only shared one near-kiss. Other than that, it was strictly professional.
About Detective Elliot Stabler
Over the years, we saw Stabler on both sides of the spectrum, from him being totally in control to losing his grip. We saw him go through an unexpected divorce, his pregnant wife get into a horrific car crash and a family secret coming out about Stabler’s mother. It was directly connected with one of his daughters getting into trouble with the law due to an undiagnosed and untreated Bipolar disorder.
Law & Order: SVU Spoilers: Return Teased
It was recently announced that Stabler would be returning to the long-running police series, but just for a guest spot. However, viewers would love it if Stabler returned full-time. However, a lot has changed in the Special Victims Unit. For one thing, Benson is no longer a detective. Now, she’s in charge.
On Instagram, Hargitay and Meloni both teased the return by sharing some selfies. One was by Meloni, who posted a picture of him posing with Hargitay. They were near each other, but to beside one another. He wrote, “We are a little bit closer.” A few minutes later, Hargitay posted a similar photo, but this one had Benson and Stabler standing a bit close to each other and Stabler has a huge smile on his face. She wrote, “Now even closer. #EO”
New L&O Series
Law & Order: SVU spoilers reveal that although fans would love Stabler to come back permanent, that’s not happening right now. For those that might not have heard, Meloni is making his big debut in Law & Order: Organized Crime. However, OC and SVU could have crossovers. However, now that tensions seem to be eased, there might be hope in the future.
When Meloni left nearly 10 years ago, there were some hard feelings over contract issues. It seems that time heals everything, including the tense situation between the actor and show bosses. What do you think of Meloni appearing in a guest spot as Stabler on Law & Order: SVU? What is your prediction about the new addition to the franchise, Organized Crime? Would you like to see Stabler and Benson work together again or has too much time passed?
