The wait is almost over for “Law & Order: SVU” fans anxious to discover the fate of Detective Olivia Benson in the “SVU” Season 15 premiere, titled “Surrender Benson.” In the exclusive preview above, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) is bound and bruised, but the fight hasn’t left the fearless detective.
Exclusive “SVU” preview! I’ve seen the episode. It is INTENSE.
"We went out to set and Mariska’s like, ‘Hi. Let’s go be lovers for a second,’" Kelli Giddish told HuffPost TV with a laugh, recalling the scene. "We were like, ‘When should we have the hand touch? When does the hand touch happen?’"
This week’s episode, “Street Revenge,” is a perfect example of Benson showing her muscle. While running the investigation of a high-profile serial rapist, Benson takes on a new leadership role as spokesperson for the Special Victims Unit, working to catch the rapist, support his victims, and keep an outraged community calm, all at the same time. And when she’s out in the field, she hasn’t forgotten how to use force — when necessary.
Ugh, she’s the best. I’m so in love with her. She’s so inspiring. She’s been on that show for so many years and she handles herself so gracefully on it. She’s just, she’s cool to be around. She’s funny, easy and she had good insight into some of the more difficult moments I had. I love an alpha female and she is like the ultimate.
