    Question?- What do pre-strike episodes have do do with any of this?! The Strike (BTW) was after Season 8 and affected Season 9 in which there only 19 episodes instead of the usual 22-25.


    If you want to discuss "Scourge" go to the Episodes Thread and discuss it there. This is a SPOILER thread.

    Law & Order: SVU addict here! Now that we know Mariska Hargitay renewed her contract for Season 15, is Dennis Duffy Dean Winters returning as well? Or will that relationship fizzle out like all her others? –Bernadette

    Winters' Brian Cassidy will be absolutely in the season premiere, which picks up right where the finale left off. In fact, it's Cassidy who sounds the proverbial alarm when hours turn into days and (abducted) Benson oddly hasn't returned any of his calls. Guest star Lauren Ambrose also returns in the two-hour Season 15 premiere, airing Sept. 25 at 9/8c.

    Question: What can we expect of Olivia this season on Law & Order: SVU? – Allyson

    Ausiello:
    We know that Olivia will make it out of last season's cliffhanger alive, but how will her encounter with Lewis affect her emotionally? Executive producer Warren Leight tells us that Benson will have a season-long arc, beginning with the two-hour season premiere (airing Sept. 25), that finds her in bad shape. "Olivia will very much be dealing with and reeling from her encounter with Lewis," Leight hints. "Her character's got incredible empathy for others and yet has had a hard time looking out for herself. This is the season where she's talked the talk to others, but she hasn't had to walk the walk until now."

    What can we expect? We already know that they plan an episode where "Paula Deen" shoots "Trayvon Martin". So Dick Wolf will do his part to keep stoking the fires of race baiting to help the Dems in next year's elections. Also expect a lot of episodes of rich white CEOs/clergy/conservatives raping and murdering poor blacks and other minorities.

    Question: Shiri Appleby put this picture on Instagram this morning. Do you know anything about it? –Rachael

    Ausiello:
    I can confirm that the photo is, indeed, of the Roswell alum (and recent friend of Chicago Fire) getting made up for a Law & Order: SVU guest stint. She'll play Amelia Albers, a junior military officer who's stopped for a DUI while on leave in New York City, but the arresting officer calls in Benson & Co. when it appears Albers has been raped. The episode, "Military Justice," will air in November.

    I prefer "ripped off from the headlines". They change aspects of high profile crimes to fit a leftist agenda. OJ Simpson became a white ex-baseball player and Michael Jacskon during his trial for child molestation became a white Jewish comedian.

    Claire:When will Sophia Bush be on SVU? I'm really looking forward to seeing my two favorites—Sophia and Mariska Hargitay—on the same show!

    Look for the Chicago PD star to show up in the Wednesday, Feb. 26 episode of Law & Order: SVU, the first show back after the Olympics. In it, a popular comedian becomes the target of students and the SVU squad when his jokes about women and rape raise ire and a student is assaulted by two of his fans. With their hands tied—the comedian has freedom of speech—the detectives have to find proof the comedian's actions reflect his words. A student comes forward and accuses the comic of rape, and Sergeant Benson slaps the cuffs on him. However, it's not smooth sailing and the case becomes increasingly complicated for the team. Yikes.

    Question:As a result of Olivia Benson's recent promotion, are the creators of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit planning on having a new detective join the squad and partner with Det. Nick Amaro? If the answer is yes, will the new detective be a returning character from either the SVU or the broader L&O universe, say for example Det. Monique Jefferies, Det. Megan Wheeler or Det. Carolyn Barek? I'm also curious that since his character's partner Det. Alexandra Eames has already appeared twice on the show, will Vincent D'Onofrio as Det. Robert Goren help investigate a case in an upcoming episode of SVU? — Alex

    Matt Roush:According to reports from the recent TCA press tour, no new faces are expected in the SVU squad the rest of the season. (And if they're announced, such news would qualify as a spoiler, which is not what this column is about.) I would expect this means no returning faces from other Law & Order shows — but kudos to your deep knowledge of the various offshoots' dramatis personae (especially Criminal Intent, which I wouldn't look at as a breeding ground for new SVU regulars). Also haven't heard anything about Goren making an appearance — and if he does, it's not likely they'd keep that a secret. This is clearly a very transitional year for SVU, as often happens when a show gets this long in the tooth, and much of the current drama will likely hinge on Benson adjusting to being the boss (even if it's just a temporary position). If SVU does return for a 16th season, that's when I'd expect to see some new personnel in the precinct.

    Sons of Anarchy star Mark Boone Junior, Rosanna Arquette, and John Benjamin Hickey will guest-star on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

    Hickey will play Tom Moore, a man who comes home from a business trip to find his young son Nicky is missing from his bed. The investigation leads to Arquette and Boone, who portray a criminal couple known for child endangerment and pornography who are spotted with Nicky. The search for the diabetic boy becomes a race against time as his insulin pump runs out, and the cops must try to turn one suspect against the other before it's too late.

    The episode, titled "Wednesday's Child," will air on Feb. 5.

    The Big C vet Hickey, who will pop up on Modern Family, previously played an A.D.A. on two episodes of SVU in 2000. Arquette, best known for films like Pulp Fiction, most recently appeared on Ray Donovan. Boone stars as Bobby Munson on Sons, which kicks off its final season in the fall.

Popular comedian Josh Galloway (guest star Jonathan Silverman) is faced with student protestors after a set at Tompkins Square University.

Though Barba (Raul Esparza) can't arrest him for speaking his mind, he charges the SVU to find proof that Galloway's actions reflect his words. When TSU student Carly Rydell (guest star Laura Slade Wiggins) accuses Galloway of rape, Sergeant Benson (Mariska Hargitay) is happy to arrest him. But Barba finds major roadblocks in the he-said she-said case, and thinks Benson should have chosen her battle more carefully. Meanwhile, a detective from Chicago (guest star Sophia Bush) seeks help from the NYPD.
