This Thursday, NBC’s Law & Order returns with new episodes of the main series (S22E12 “Almost Famous”), “SVU” (S24E12 “Blood Out”), and “Organized Crime” (S03E12 “Partners in Crime”). But it just wouldn’t feel right to share a look at the episode overviews and promos for all three episodes before following up on the most important story in the L&O universe this week. That’s right, Mariska Hargitay (SVU’s Olivia Benson) has responded to her long-time friend & co-star Christopher Meloni’s (Elliot Stabler) “almost” birthday reminder (he never did, technically, say the word before being cut off). In the video, Hargitay shows off the pretty impressive way that Meloni went about reminding her of her special day.
