    This review was **chef’s kiss**. Lord knows I love me some Meloni, but if OC continues to trot out that bargain basement faux-Livia I’m declaring a fatwa on the show until they park her spaghetti-eating butt on a one-way flight back to Leonardo da Vinci International.

      Absolutely DEAD at “bargain basement faux-Livia.”

    Nail on head with this review of a crap episode.

    It was cringy and yucky. I wouldn’t be surprised if all of the die-hard SVU fans just quit watching, which is the majority of OC’s viewership. OC was built on Stabler’s relationship with Benson; it needed her character to make the show. Now that OC has struck out on its own with fab characters that we are investing in, we’re stabbed in the back for that investment.

    It’s just bad TV. Do they (all involved in imagining and writing the episodes) not realize it is truly bad (for all the reasons you mentioned above!). It’s also not true to the characters of Stabler and Benson who apparently are just out of each other’s lives. They are emotionally healthier people who _would have had a conversation (or 47 by now)_. But apparently L&O world wants them separated, and Benson will survive that—SVU’s 24×7 was classic SVU with some great character development. But Stabler? As a viewer, I’m beginning to just not care. All that set up about “true love” and then the OC drops it? It’s bad television. The powers that be should have realized the OC made it because of Benson and SVU, so at the very least the viewers should have had a “let’s be friends” conversation before separating the shows and try e characters.

    And also—dude, human trafficking and no SVU? And last week, abused kids and no SVU? I can only suspend my disbelief for so long, and 3×7 may have just squashed that.

    ALL OF THIS!!!!!!

    Yes to all of this. I feel like even Chris and Mariska just don’t care about it either. He talks about rewriting things and how they know their characters better than anyone but they just sit back and let this stuff happen? I think the revolving showrunners at OC doesn’t help. But they set up in the SVU finale for Olivia to explore or move on from Elliot. I guess she decided to move on. The new SR there has done zero with it becsuse he’s obsessed with Rollisi and giving Kelli Giddish her exit. Like you can’t do both. There was supposed to be an EO centric ep for eon9 and now that’s not happening because of the san old lame excuse of scheduling. I guess we’ll always have fanfic. I’m not even watching OC anymore and I’m close to ditching SVU too. It’s not worth it anymore.

      I don’t know if I’d qualify Graziano as “obsessed” or uncaring. He’s in a tight situation and trying to make the best of it, from what very little bit I know of that situation.

      I try to think of it this way: We got a horrible exit for Stabler. I wouldn’t wish that on Rollins’ fans, so I’m fine with a delay on the bigger movement. What I’m not fine with is being sold this idea that the universes would be connected…when they, yet again, aren’t. I think a brief mention of “yeah, Liv. Great seeing you the other day” on a one-way call would go a long way.

    This episode… I can’t find words.
    Jet, Bell, Reyes, Whelan are just fantastic.
    Elliot with the above four is great.

    But all of it ruined, just ruined by the poor choices made by the writers on Tia.

    1. No one from Tia’s group got back to Bell.

    2. Bell has no say, when Elliot and Tia are making calls.

    3. Don’t even get me started on the exact same history Tia seems to have with Elliot, as Olivia does, not just the wardrobe and hair. The writers get an F on this assignment.

    4. If Tia were at my door like this, I would be very creeped out. Like why are you here? What do you need at this hour? I would make her spell out her intentions with me. You need a drink, that’s great. Go find a drinking buddy and go to the bar, I am tired, goodnight. See you at work. And don’t ever show up at my home at 11pm.

    My god, you guys are so damn straight and narrow. Don’t knock a little love that comes into Stabler’s life. And a new woman that’s introduced. Tia is gorgeous and sensual. He can have some excitement every once in a while that’s not shooting and punching. The writers aren’t that dumb. Olivia and Stabler wll be a thing some day, I’m sure. But, broaden your horizons and don’t kick other beautiful women off the stage. 🙂
