We Finally Know
What To Expect
Of Bensler In The
Epic Law & Order
For the first time ever, all three "Law & Order" series will come together for a mammoth three-hour episode. The crossover promises to bring some familiar faces together, and perhaps no reunion is more enticing to fans than that of Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) also known affectionately by their ship name ‘Bensler.’
Executive producer Julie Martin said the crossover event will be a satisfying homecoming for Bensler. "I think what you will certainly see in the movie [...] is them having a great, great working relationship and falling into that easy partnership [...] kind of knowing what the other person is thinking," added Martin.
At the end of Season 23 of "svu," Benson's therapist and Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) both encouraged her to pursue a romantic relationship with Stabler. According to Martin, fans will have to hold out a little longer to see if Benson takes their advice to heart.
