Stabler’s sudden reappearance on the show was difficult for the both of them but there was no doubt that their chemistry was as strong as ever.
Surely, the crew framed these two scenes to mirror one another to remind fans what an incredible team they are together, and just how connected they are and always will be.
After discussing their issues, Benson and Stabler have grown closer in season 22 of SVU as both series had frequent crossover events.
Hopefully, the showrunners will continue to reunite the fan-favourite crime fighting duo and carry on teasing viewers.
Whether or not the pair get together in the future, at least, for now, it means that Benson and Stabler are sharing the screen together once again.
Law and Order: Special Victims Unit is available to watch on NBC in the US. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
