Mariska Hargitay says Benson’s ‘been in love’ with Stabler

Throughout a current look on Drew Barrymore’s daytime talk program, Mariska Hargitay was inquired about her “Law & Order: SVU” charatcer Olivia Benson’s relationship with previous partner Elliot Stabler, played by Christopher Meloni.
After a years of being apart, the characters have actually reunited and Stabler is on a brand-new program, “Law & Order: Organized Crime.”

Barrymore explained that with the death of Stabler’s partner, he is complimentary to check out a romantic relationship with Benson.

“He is free, and I think he’s got eyes for me,” Hargitay stated. “But Olivia Benson is hurt! I mean, he left me in a lurch for 10 years. She’s frightened.”

However that does not suggest there’s not a possibility of coupledom, according to Hargitay.

“The energy’s there,” she stated. “Olivia’s been in love with him for many a year.”

Alright now!

Simply do not get your hopes up for it to occur anytime quickly.

“I think that we are slowly finding our way back to it, but I want to give him the amount of time he needs to grieve [his wife] Kathy Stabler,” Hargitay stated.
