In the criminal justice system, a lot happens so a recap is completely necessary. The detectives who investigate these crimes were put to the test last season. Season 15 was pure hell for Olivia. She was kidnapped, tortured and assaulted by Pablo Schreiber's William Lewis, then further tormented by him in court.
She lied under oath by claiming her attack on him she beat him unconscious with an iron rod was purely self defense, although he was actually cuffed to the bed.
Later, when Lewis escaped from prison and kidnapped a girl and made Benson publicly admit to her lie in order to save the girl's life. When she attempted to recuse the girl, Lewis forced her into a game of Russian roulette, until finally killing himself and framing her for murder. Yet Benson survived it all, got promoted to sergeant along the way and proved that even after 15 seasons of some of the worst crimes imaginable, she's one of the strongest female detectives on television.
In the middle of Season 15, the squad discovered an unclaimed infant in a motel room when catching a pair of child pornographers.
The baby was then sent to foster care. Fast-forward to the season finale when a prostitute, Ellie Porter, must testify against her pimp, Little Tino. When the squad runs Ellie's DNA through the system, they find that the unclaimed baby, named Noah Porter, is in fact her son. But the night before her Grand Jury testimony, Ellie is attacked and found on the side of the road burned to death.
Little Tino is sent to prison for her murder, but the squad knows someone higher up must have been involved. When determining Noah's future, a judge grants Benson's long-awaited wish to become a mother. Rapist Anonymous had the first blatant hint. All those hints also implied that whatever they have is non exclusive. About what Murphy said, I think it had too purposes, make people believe show he was going to ask about Amaro and show that he has done his research.
Amanda had a relationship whit her Atlanta's captain. Had it been Barba or Murphy then it had been jawdropping, now all jawdropping came from seeing shirtless-Amaro.
I think they did the whole scene well though, it wasn't too obvious and the writers just put it in there like nothing special and I kinda liked that actually. Will be interesting to see if it's just partners with benefits or real feelings between them. Still love Murphy, still he might be right about Rollins having a blind spot for men with power BUT how the hell did he know about the Atlanta captain?? Is it like in Rollins' file? And she didn't have a relationship with him, in that bar scene in S13 when he made a pass at her, or frankly tried to kiss her, she said 'are you forgetting you're married' and he brought up the fact he didn't have the ring on and that they had something back in Atlanta that hadn't gone further though because of his marriage and then she pretended to get a phone call to get out of that situation so, at least the way I read it - they never acted on any feelings they might've had.
And for Murphy to bring up Cragen.
That office scene still baffles me. And you did see her eyes going there right?! I have to say while I was watching the episode and a shirtless Amaro came on screen in Rollins apartment thank you, writers hahah I was literally speechless and immediately was like I KNOWWW Chris has something to say about this! They have ZERO chemistry. Though, we might here next episode that he was just crashing there and they didnt really do anything, who know, technically we didn't really see anything go on between them.
Can't wait for next week! I missed some of the recent episodes that story arc with Benson's kidnapper turned me off the series for a while.
So what's next for Rollins and Amaro? Will anyone Now, they didn't connect immediately while I was sitting there in the read-through. It was a. Law & Order: SVUfans were both surprised and elated when it was revealed late last season that Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and Amaro (Danny.
Is Murphy a permanent part of the series now? He sort of reminds me of Stabler's temporary partner when Benson was gone, experienced but not quite skilled in the ways of these sorts of crimes. I don't mind the odd subplot with them, just don't focus on it. Or at least do it well. Liked the one between Rollins and her sister.
Jason - Murphy or Donal Logue will be with 'us' until the end of the season. I'm still hoping though, it's the TV world after all - everthing can happen right? Perception is a funny thing. I've thought there was a spark of something between them for a while. Chemistry might be too strong a word but something.
Still I think Danny Pino would have chemistry with a ham sandwich so I'm not objective. I think Rollaro is two people who've hit rock bottom turning to each other for some sort of comfort and it's probably more about sex than romance or love.
The things that he sees everyday and the conversations he has to have everyday with survivors, perpetrators, witnesses leave an indelible mark on him and I think that's what Maria sees which is why I think she wanted to leave and take their daughter with her. Donal would be wonderful but I think Gotham will be a huge hit. He is Catholic, still technically married and probably is feeling some guilt. Also we got shown severall hints to it,it still wasnt a hit in the face. Certainly, Amaro losing his family and still [carrying a torch] for his wife, his difficulties at work, the obstacles that he's tried to overcome, and Rollins with her gambling addiction and her difficulties professionally — the two of them found each other both in need and so, to me, all of those dots do connect. Amaro is arrested for assaulting a suspect, Simon Wilkes Joshua Malina , while off duty. But with hardly a mention of the two being romantic since that episode, TVGuide.
In that respect it seems perfectly plausible to me. It also gave us another look-see at Danny Pino shirtless and that can't be bad. I don't have a problem with it and am intrigued as to how it will evolve. I'd love to know when and how it started but that may not be addressed. I was never sold on Bensidy but I accepted it and respected that others liked the relationship.
