SVU Boss Promises Benson/Stabler Fans: A 'Memorable' Moment Is Coming!

Get More: Interviews, Scoop, Spoilers

Law & Order: SVU showrunner Neal Baer knows what the fans want, and he’s giving it to you in next Wednesday’s episode.

“Next week! Next week!” Baer gushed when asked about any buzzworthy moments ahead for SVU‘s smoldering — but just friends — lead detectives, Benson and Stabler. “Next week. ‘Pursuit.’ Debra Messing. Christine Lahti. Mariska Hargitay. Chris Meloni. It’s shocking — a shocking episode. In many ways,” he teased.

Tightlipped as ever, Baer was careful not to reveal too much else about the episode, or what exactly transpires between Elliot and Olivia. But we were able to extract a little more scoop from the series boss.

“It’s complex, and you will see Benson and Stabler in a way you haven’t seen,” he offered. “It’s certainly a situation we haven’t done before, and the ramifications will play out in a way that the fans will, I hope, really appreciate. It is memorable.

“But it’s not a shocking moment between them,” Bear clarified. “Something terribly shocking happens, and consequently, the moment between them is memorable, which underscores their relationship in ways that the fans will really appreciate.”

Baer added that while the moment is central to Wednesday’s episode alone, “The ramifications certainly carry on. Definitely.”

Dying to find out what the heck the big shock is? For now, take a peek at NBC’s description of Wednesday’s episode — coupled with Baer’s latest BubbleTweet preview — and maybe some of the pieces will start to come together:

When Alicia Harding (played by Messing), host of the television series “Neighborhood Predator,” begins to receive personal threats, her life-long pursuit to find her sister’s abductor emerges. Detectives Olivia Benson and Odafin “Fin” Tutola (Ice-T) are joined in the investigation by ADA Sonya Paxton (Lahti), who may be too involved in the case. As Harding thinks she is getting close to the truth, another’s life hangs in the balance.

Don’t miss NBC’s Law & Order: SVU Wednesday, February 16, at 10/9c.

What do you think the memorable moment will be for Benson and Stabler? Post your theories in the comments!

          • I agree with this, I think they would ruin what those two have by putting them together romantically. Don’t do it.

            Comment by cnelson – February 11, 2011 03:14 PM PDT  
          • I know, I like the always kinda woundering that is part of the relationship they have. You know that they are good friends but wounder is it that or something more? They are really great together that is the best of the law and orders.

            Comment by krae – February 11, 2011 08:59 PM PDT  
          • I agree! The whole balance and tension set up between the two of them and the depth created make the show many faceted and REAL, thus interesting. Too many shallow fall into bed shows out there already. I do think they should revisit Benson’s brother. She needs a fam. The shows with the brother are some of my favorites. Every time she gets a kid or a brother it is dropped.
            By the time this is posted everyone will know the event is the crazy ex drunk DA is murdered and her demise collars the killer. GREAT show! Cant wait for the next one… Please dont pull the plug NBC!

        • that would ruin the entire show….the fact that they don’t fall
          into BED together..(like other shows)makes them #1..love them both..

        • I doubt it. I think the more likely thing is that something terrible will happen (Fin gets badly hurt, ADA Paxton is killed, etc.) and Olivia and Elliot are right in the thick of it when it goes down. It affects both of them deeply, and there will be an emotional moment where they are both incredibly vulnerable and comforting each other, and perhaps realize the depth of how important they are to one another. I see Elliot holding Liv while she cries kind of thing, as he stoically tries to fight back his own tears. Something like that.

          • yeah but elliot already held her while she was almost crying in an episode…..i think it was “Spooked”…im pretty sure……..well she was shaken up….but yeah it was so exciting to see that:)i loved it:)as always:)

        • I think that would be a great shocker of all. Have Cabot come back and hook up with Benson. That’s exactly what SVU could use as for Elliot well it would be good to see him be jealous fof the whole thing and try to break them up have his wife leave him for good with the kids and that’s it. Anyway isn’t he leaving the show anyway this could be a terrific storyline for a great exit.

          Comment by Denise – February 12, 2011 06:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • YES! YES! YES!! A/O forever! I’ve been on that bandwagon for years…but I’ll take Alex Cabot in any capacity. ALl of the other ADAs pale in comparison. Did I mention I love A/O?? ;)

        • Actually, I think she might have had a very well-done cleft lip repair. I’m surprised that when I searched for it on the internet, the only thing that came up on it was that she is a spokesperson for the Smile Train, an organization that donates medical/dental services for the countless children in the world that don’t have access to medical/dental care to repair cleft lips and palates. Yay, Mariska!

  • let me guess…olivia gets upset and eliot hugs her to comfort her and that’s it. seriously, baer says it’ll be big but i doubt it. i love svu but even if something big happens there’s never any continuity so it’ll happen and then never come up again. :(

  • Sonya dies, benson and stabler finds her, benson has an epiphany and gets her life together in re personal aspect, stabler softens a bit more. End of season.

  • Benson’s life hangs by a thread, and just as Stabler is about to save her, he sees me and falls in love. (ha ha)

    No, but wasn’t this supposed to be Stabler’s last season? If so, maybe something will happen to him :-( (this would make me very sad).

    Comment by Sandra – February 11, 2011 12:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Really this is his last season??? Why? What is svu without him? I think we all wish he’d fall in love with us!

    • my prediction: benson and stabler hug cuz fin gets hurt or whatever, then elliot dies (the shocking moment not BETWEEN them)and all of a sudden the hug becomes the moment between them that is memorable. that is what i think neal is saying :(

  • I”ve heard Neal Baer promote a pivotal, game changing moment that will change their relationship and have lasting effects for for like 10000000 times. This is bull.

  • Believing anything Neal says is like playing the lottery, there is only a one in a billion chance you will be happy with the results. You know what is memorable, Neal? Fault, look it up, season 7. You know what was a game changing episode? Burned, season 8, look it up. If you cry wolf enough times, people are going to stop coming to see what’s up. You may be able to fool those new to the game, but those who have been playing (suffering) for awhile now, no longer care. Good luck.

Olivia shows so much emotion and compassion for the victims! Suggestion: Just make “USA” channel “Law and Order SVU” and that would keep a smile on my face! Then, I wouldn’t need but one channel! I just love SVU!!!!!!

  • I think they should stay as friends and partners. Getting together will just complicate things. One thing I’ve respected about this show is that they’ve kept Benson & Stabler’s relationship as partners and friends and not get tpgether like on all those predictable shows where partners and co-workers hook-up. If you want someone for Olivia – find her a boyfirend! LOL

    • I agree 100% with this post. Word for word. I also have respected that they have kept them as good friends/partners. Please don’t ruin that. That is why they are so likeable. No romantic involvement. Leave us that!!

      Comment by cnelson – February 11, 2011 03:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’ll “complicate” things? Well, that’s why they call it a “drama” and not a “everything is perfect”. To me, having a show about sex crimes and not having two people with a normal sex life and sexual development, is kinda useless. You have to have both sides of life to differentiate between the two. I think, if NB does go that route (most likely he won’t) with these characters, it would be good for the show. Besides, its not like SVU is Castle or Bones, where you get bored with the “romance” 2 episodes into it :D.

        Comment by ShindoW – February 12, 2011 07:53 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • and i guess you missed the fact that Elliot wasn’t living at home when he went back for a booty call and made Eli, and only moved back when he found out Kathy was pregnant. Or you missed the fact that Kathy had to talk to Olivia to get Elliot to sign the divorce papers. Or you missed the fact that it was OLIVIA who had to stop Kathy from walking out when Elliot went undercover and didn’t call her.

          Even if you don’t want EO, it is clear as night and day that Kathy and Elliot’s marriage and sex life is far from perfect.

          • It’s so obvious that Elliot and Olivia belong together. I don’t like Kathy. She is boring and one dimensional….and so negative and unappreciative of the absolute hunk she is married to. She is average, at best, and no depth or charisma. But, I respect the show is playing the chemistry between Stabler and Benson but not going further. This is very much the way it often plays out in workplaces across the US and world.

  • Nothing that EO fans want will happen. Olivia and Alicia Harding will be out working on the case. Harding will be killed but Elliot only hears that someone is shot. Olivia will be upset because Harding died in front of her. Elliot will be happy his partner isn’t dead. Nothing will change because Elliot isn’t interested in Olivia as anything other than his partner. Even Olivia has finally figured that out.

  • Hmmm…. since Debra Messing character plays a TV host, will probably get Olivia or Eliot to express their true feelings about each other on camera. Of course they wont know it at first. Hopefully, Kathy doesnt find out. She is the only female Olivia fears. LOL.

  • Yeah, those of you wanting EO so bad, hope you enjoy the end of the show as well. C’mon! The moment they sleep together *pukes a little* is the moment you can wave buh-bye to the show. I don’t think any of us want that, do we? If you want EO, read some fan fic. Otherwise, not happening!

I hate it when Baer says that something “groundbreaking” or “shocking” is going happen because it never does. I want a good E/O moment. I haven’t really seen any good ones since season 8. Neal…stop torturing the shippers. We have been waiting 12 years for this sh*t. If Mariska or Chris leave and we haven’t had E/O actaully be E/O I am going to be PISSED!!!

If Maloni leaves, the show will die–so hopefully he’s not going anywhere-after all he’ll never be able to get another gig. If this never ending procession of ADAs continues, hopefully she won’t be named Alex (I think there have been 2-3 ADAs with that name)

      • Elliot and his wife have had a lot of problems over the years. I think Elliot & Olivia have been in love for most of the years of their partnership but both have been to honorable to do anything about it. Elliot’s children are older now.

        Something could happen so drastic that they both realize how short life can be and give into their love. Kathy could find out, this would add some fire to the epi. also Olivia could find out she is pregnant.

        I’m just throwing some storylines out of possiblities the “will they won’t they” storyline is going south with a lot of shows so I wouldn’t be surprised at anything.

        As someone said earlier, Stabler is married & has children and that does make a difference as to how many will view this. But, romance has been sizzling beneath the surface almost from the start. It was just never acted upon.

        Comment by faye – February 13, 2011 03:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • You are confusing Olivia’s having a crush on Elliot with her being in love. No matter how much Olivia may want their relationship to be more than partners, it isn’t going to happen. Elliot has never shown any interest in being anything other than her partner. Olivia simply didn’t have any experience with men who treated her like a human being. So she reacted the only way she knew how, to think it was personal.
          Elliot treats Olivia the way we have seen him treat his previous partners. It’s the partnership that is important to him regardless of who his partner is. If Olivia were an Oliver, the relationship would be the same with a few changes to situations where Olivia’s gender was an issue such as Inconceivable.

        • You make some good points,Faye. I agree that they play these two roles as being very sexually attracted to each other,but that they;re unable to ever consummate it.He’s married with five kids, she’s obsessed with the work that they do and has very little time to pursue a romantic relationship with any man. I’m not an E/O shipper-I’ve just never seen them that way.They seem like very good partners, but have disagreed frequently in the past over work-related issues, so I don’t think they have enough of the same belief system to really make it work personally.I’ve read lately that MH wants Benson to leave the force to have a family of her own, so that would pretty much remove her from the show entirely.I think these two actors have incredible chemistry, and love each a lot in real life,after so many years of working together so closely,and it comes through on the screen.

          Comment by Susan – February 25, 2011 02:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Agreed. I personally would rather not see E/O together because I like Elliott’s character, and I like that, even though there have been problems in his marriage, he and his wife have made it work. I don’t want to see his character turned into a cheater for the sake of drama. However, I also don’t want to see Alex and Olivia together, because that just makes no sense when both have been straight on the show (and original L&O already did the out of context lesbian thing when Serena left), and I don’t want to see yet another dead DA. I have a feeling I may leave this episode unsatisfied!

    • EO makes no sense? yet you think that Alex and Olivia who are both straight, would make a better couple. Yeah kid, you’re the perfect person to be saying what makes sense or not.

      • EO makes no sense? Sometimes I wonder if people are watching the same show as I am! AO make no sense since both women are STRAIGHT. It’s ridiculous to have straight characters on tv “suddenly” discover they are bisexual or lesbian, just because the producers were too scared to actually have a fully lesbian character from the start. RIDICULOUS!

  • Alex comes back to thw show? If that’s not happening, then it’s not grand. Season 12 has been the worst season thus far and -m a huge fan. More Alex. Elliot’s been married too long and has too many children to make a move on Olivia. That would be discouraging to married couples. BUT Alex returning to express some emotion and olivia express a little bit of hers towards Alex, now that’s hopeful. Transform television with a popular show. A/O!

    • I agree, this season has not lived up to it’s normal ratings as far as I am concerned. This makes me believe this may be the last season of the show. It seems everyone’s role has taken a turn for the worst. I would be broken hearted if this were so. SVU is my favorite show. Up until the last couple of seasons there has been a special relationship between Benson and Stabler. I also believe they love each other and in past shows it has been obvious without being overt. I would like to see it taken to the next step, especially if the show is on the way out. As for a relationship between Alex and Olivia developing, thats just twisted.

  • I won´t wait that much, because Baer uses to do this with us! He´s so mean to us!!! I know it´d be the end of the show if something would happen between them! But I can´t look at them and not see them together!! They´re so perfect!!! Anyways, I like when they pay attention to their relationship.

  • Don’t change Olivia and Elliots relationship. They are so good together just the way they are. They love each other as partners and friends,thats why it works so good. Don’t lose what they have by having them become romantically involved. I have never felt like their was a sexual tension between the two. Show people you can have what they have without the other. Thats what most of us love about them. Keep him faithful to his wife and kids, and yes find someone thats decent and available for Olivia. And bring back Cabot.

  • I think something very serious is going to happen and Benson and Stabler will realize just how much they do love each other, but because they are of high integrity and respect each other to the highest degree, nothing happens. It will be a very intense moment where it could go in one direction but don’t. The passion is there but they are too good people so don’t let things get out of control.

  • http://revivingtrialbyjury.blogspot.com/2011/02/will-law-order-svu-return-for-season-13.html

    We need to go back to the old way of telling SVU stories. Neal Baer (and his crew) is nothing but a liar with a Twitter account, catering for E/O fans!

    I want SVU CHANGED or TERMINATED!

    • I’m an EO fan and I don’t think he caters to me. He LIES! 12 years and 2 hugs, and that’s catering?!!!! I don’t think so.

  • People are still talking about Neal Baer’s faults on SVU at ATL&O! EO is one of them, Neal’s led fans on for years w/ no answers!

  • I would like to see them kiss and get intrupted by a call from work. Then they decide that they don’t want to ruin a good friendship.

  • I don’t know what the moment could be. Maybe Elliot thought Olivia was killed and he hugs her when he realizes she is alive. They are just partners, best friends, he loves her like a brother. Bring ALEX CABOT back!!!! Alex and Liv need to realize their feelings for each other and get together! A/O*A/O*A/O FOREVER!
