Law and Order: SVU's Midseason Cliffhanger Is Benson's Worst Nightmare – eonline
Olivia Benson’s worst nightmare just happened. At the finish of “Intent,” the Law & Order: SVU midseason finale approximately an elaborate online catfishing that resulted in a social media star (Gage Golightly) getting raped by a celebrated fighter (Steve Howey), Mariska Hargitay‘s Benson received the call every parent fears: Noah (Ryan Buggle) is lost.
The episode featured Hargitay’s character lay down the law with Sheila (Brooke Shields), Noah’s maternal birth grandma after Sheila told Noah approximately his birth mother. The two reached an understanding of sorts and Benson agreed to let Sheila consume Noah shopping for a winter coat. While in the clothing store, a hooded figure watched as Noah tried on coats. When Sheila turned her back to bag Noah a coat with a smaller hood, the hooded figure seemingly pounced. We’re saying seemingly because SVU loves their twists. A panicked Sheila then made the call to Benson.
“I remember saying to [SVU showrunner Michael Chernuchin], ‘I don’t know how we did it. I don’t know how we did it.’ It’s just like this whole other flavor,” Hargitay said approximately the upcoming episode. “We just dove into motherhood, and what it means to be a mother and what we would achieve for our children. And again, we maintain finding total these graceful areas to excavate and it’s deeply exciting.”
