NBC’s recent promo for Elliot Stabler’s long-awaited return to Law & Order verse only speaks two new words, but to be fair, they’re two pretty good ones.
In the short but powerful preview that aired Thursday night, Elliot (Chris Meloni) arrives at the scene. Although we don’t see him, we hear him calling to Liv (Mariska Hargitay), who turns around and speaks his name in return.
The emotions in her voice can only be compared to the excitement of the fans to see this legendary duo together again after all these years. Meloni starred alongside Hargitay in the first 12 seasons of Law & Order: SVU and left before Season 13 because of a recently labeled “inelegant” contract dispute.
Before the reunion is revealed, this new promo takes us back to the duo’s earlier days, with Liv praising their “great relationship”. We are also forced to relive the devastating moment when Liv learned that he would no longer be her partner. (It’s okay now, we know how the story ends!)
The highly anticipated Elliot and Liv reunion will air as part of a special Law & Order: SVU crossover episode on Thursday, April 1st at 9 p.m. on NBC. The series premiere of Law & Order follows immediately: Organized Crime, NBC’s new spin-off with a Meloni front.
