And whilst the former companions have undoubtedly been gravitating towards one ever since Christopher Meloni reprised his function of Det. Stabler on Law & Order: Organized Crime, he and Mariska Hargitay‘s Capt. Benson have not begun to fasten lips. As a consequence, lovers are almost begging Law & Order showrunners to do one thing—the rest—that will be offering a glimmer of hope (particularly after Meloni and Hargitay’s near-kiss at the 2022 Emmys!).
E! News used to be decided to get solutions. So, forward of the highly-anticipated upcoming Law & Order crossover event, we requested Meloni what it could take to peer him and Hargitay percentage a kiss.
His reaction? “You might as well win the Powerball.”
While now not the maximum reassuring of solutions, Law & Order lovers know to all the time be expecting the sudden. After all, as Meloni put it, there is a particular bond between Benson and Stabler. “What’s his favorite thing about her? Well, it’s that familiarity,” he informed E! News. “And now it’s the idea of you’re in a space where you’re allowed to give full expression to feelings that you always had, but were not allowed to act on.”
