Exclusive “Law & Order: SVU” sneak peek: Rollins and Benson go undercover at a sperm bank as a lesbian couple.

"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?’"

More from Kelli Giddish, including why Ice-T and Coco are the favorite people she’s met this year and what it was like working with Martha Stewart, here.

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.

Chloe Sevigny on working with Mariska Hargitay:

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.

This picture never ceases to amuse me.

"The thing about their relationship is that it was an impossibility. You always wanted it to work and for it to happen, but you knew it wasn’t because he was married, and they loved each other in a different kind of way. It’s interesting to see how she’s sort of breaking down a little bit and letting David into her emotional circle because that was once a place that she really only let Elliot into. It’s fun to be that guy."

"Law & Order: SVU" preview! Miranda! Mariska! Cameron!

I’ll be back. I can’t leave this show. I’m having too much fun.

Remember when I kept going to the ‘SVU’ set? Here’s why.

It’s a rainy Friday afternoon in late September and I’m in The Crazy Horse Cabaret, a strip club in the Bronx. To my left is a man dressed like a bloody doctor, to my right is a taller gentleman dressed as a caveman.

We’re not speaking, although it looks like we’re deep in conversation. The doctor orders shots from the bartender. I’m handed a glass, but the clear liquid is not vodka; I’m doing a shot of water. Don’t feel sorry for me though — we’re on set of the 'Law & Order: SVU' Halloween episode.
