The Law & Order 2022 Crossover Premiere Confirms What We Cynically Suspected About Bensler

There was not a wink, not a flirt, not a fight, not anything between Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) in the “Law & Order” Fall 2022 crossover event. Bensler fans are too familiar with the coupling tease, and we don’t expect these two to come together anytime soon. We believe they will, but Dick Wolf and his showrunners have to take their sweet time because you need the viewers to stay glued.

The crossover event was also extremely tense (well, just the first two hours), and there wasn’t even a second to waste on a Bensler romance moment as it was moving incredibly fast. Olivia and Elliot shared many of their scenes, but it was strictly business. There is one moment where Olivia holds her former partner back from a fight but also fiercely defends his actions simultaneously. It’s good to see the duo still go to bat for one another after all these years.

“Law & Order: SVU” head writer Julie Martin told Today well before the crossover that they want to keep the question of a Bensler romance going for as long as possible, so everyone should have seen this coming. They have to keep us tuning in every week, as the risk of losing viewers after their coupling is too big a risk. But honestly, haven’t we waited long enough? It’s been 24 seasons; if you haven’t lost us by now, you’re not going to.
