First Look - Law & Order: SVU Season 21

Law & Order: Organized Crime and Law & Order: SVU viewers know there is serious “will they or won’t they” tension between Olivia Benson (Mariska Hartigay) and Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni). The two were partners on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and have had a complicated relationship throughout the years. But will they finally get together in the newer seasons? Some of their co-stars have weighed in with their enthusiastic opinions.

How to Watch

Watch Law & Order: Organized Crime on NBC and Peacock.

Danielle Moné Truitt, who plays Stabler’s partner Ayanna Bell on Organized Crime, has some thoughts on the undeniable chemistry and affection between Benson and Stabler on the show. “[Bell] can tell that [Benson and Stabler] love each other. I don’t know if Bell is concerned about whether it’s a platonic love or a romantic love,” she told The Today Show.

However, she then added that she believed the friendship is definitely on the verge of leaning towards the romantic side. “But she can see the bond that they have and I think she’s gonna want whatever’s best for Stabler at the end of the day," she said. “I think she’s a supporter of his emotional health, his mental health, and hopefully they hook up and get together, and it’s a great relationship. I think Bell would definitely be on board."
