In a recent episode of Law and Order: SVU, Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay, confesses her feelings for former partner Elliot Stabler, portrayed by Christopher Meloni. Fans of the show had longed for the two characters to form a romantic relationship, and it appears that their dreams may finally come true. Elliot was married for most of the show, which may have prevented a romantic relationship from forming. However, in a mid-season finale of its 24th season, Olivia admitted to fellow officer Amanda Rollins that she still loved Elliot. His wife Kathy was killed off during the crossover, making it "possible" for them to potentially get together. Fans of the pairing expressed their excitement on social media following the episode's airing.
