I'm worried about Amaro. I don't know what's going on. Is he stalking his wife? And why would he do that? Is he interested in Rollins? Ugh! I just want him to be happy.

I know. I'm thinking it is probably 'his way' of dealing with Benson/Lewis. I mean Warren & Co said we would see the aftermath of it play out through the season. I'm thinking he has major control issues that may come from what went down.
Warren tweeted that he didn't see a Amaro/Rollins hook-up in brewing (but he also wrote 'you never know with characters') but they obviously hinted to it like at least three times - Benson's "out-of-line"-line about them getting a room, the gossip girl moment (that was hilarious btw) with Fin in the bathroom and then Declan called him 'the boyfriend'. I'm a Finanda shipper but I kinda wouldn't mind an office fling of some sort if it just didn't interfere too much with the cases. I can't lie I find sexual tension kinda hot and intriguing.
At this point though I guess Amanda should stay out of any relationship (it's a year in AA I think? In GA I dunno but obviously screwing your sponsor isn't such a smart idea) and Amaro is just not in the right place so I think it would be hard to balance anything between those two right now. But in season 16 - why not?! :)moreless

I agree, it wouldn't be a good idea for Amaro & Rollins to get together right now. You make a good point about Amaro. With what happened to Benson he is especially protective of the women in his life.

I love SVU but this episode was just over the top. Rollins is addicted to gambling so at some point we know it's going to hit the fan, but just like a typical tv plot, there's a UC to save her. And if that wasn't bad enough, she still keeps her job at SVU. Get real. But if this is a way to introduce Donal to SVU, I'm all for it. Each show I see him in, his acting gets better and better. He needs a home and SVU would be awesome. Unless they decided to do Law & Order: Vice. Ooohhhh, come on, that would be perfect!

I don't know how "typical" the plot twist was. I didn't see it coming. I guess Kelli Giddish is just that good.

It would have to be Law & Order: Vikings then cause I think Donal is 'stuck' on that show for a while now. He is awesome tho. SVU sorta ruined him for me tho, I've always loved him as a bad guy but suddenly he's the good guy. Weird but in a good way. I'm still happy Rollins' with the squad tho. SVU needs characters with flaws like IRL, Benson is too much Superwoman for my taste.

I've just seen it and I'm having a hard time forming sentences as she was so frickin fantastic. Hands down my fave episode this season but then I am a big Rollins fan so of course. Feel like my ship - Finanda - sank a little tho.
