"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" has always had a romantic side alongside its crime-solving narrative. One of the notable pairings in the show is between Amanda Rollins and Dominick "Sonny" Carisi. It took a while for them to develop a genuine relationship, but when it finally happened, it was a significant moment for the series.

Peter Scanavino, who plays Sonny Carisi, recalls his reaction when he first read the script where Rollins kisses Carisi. He immediately contacted Kelli Giddish (Amanda Rollins) to discuss the scene, acknowledging that it felt a bit strange since they are good friends off-screen.

However, Scanavino believes that the kiss was well-deserved and didn't feel forced.

Fan reception regarding Rollins and Carisi's relationship is mixed. While some fans are vocal supporters of their pairing and see it as a satisfying development, others criticize it. Some argue that there is no chemistry between the characters, while others believe Rollins would have been better suited with another character, such as Hasim Khaldun.

One fan suggests that Carisi and Rollins worked better as friends rather than romantic partners, expressing skepticism about the "attractive male and attractive female character" trope.

Despite the mixed opinions from fans, the show proceeded with their relationship. Before Kelli Giddish's departure from the series in 2022, the characters even got married in a small ceremony surrounded by their colleagues from the New York City Police Department Special Victims Unit.

In conclusion, while not every fan may be pleased with Amanda Rollins and Sonny Carisi becoming a couple on "Law & Order: SVU," it was considered the right step for the characters' development after a long build-up.
