A clip released in late February teased the reunion, at a crime scene, as Stabler calls out “Liv!” and a shocked Benson turns quickly, whispering “Elliot!”Now we know why. Seconds after opening credits roll Benson responds to a call, a car bomb, and recognized the “vic” — Stabler’s wife Kathy. Looking up, she locks eyes with her former partner. They’ve had no contact for ten years. “They tried to kill Kathy,” he said. And they’re off. headtopics.com
It seems Stabler got stuck in a ripped-from-the-headlines anti-curfew protest where police vehicles were being targeted. He had stepped out of his car to make a call. The bomb of course was meant for Elliot.Why did he really leave New York in the first place? We don’t know. Why is he back? To testify against two suspects he rounded up in Puglia, he says.
Why is he still roughing guys up in interrogation — so last decade. “Please don’t tell me, ‘We don’t do it that way anymore,’ I’ve been living in Europe, not under a rock!” he bellows at Olivia.Had he even been planning to call her? Seems not.Kathy doesn’t make it. Segue to
