You know, guys... the show is getting to a sad point when a.) you don't notice until after an episode is concluded that Olivia had less than five minutes of screen time and b.) when you do notice, your immediate thought is "well, THAT'S a relief."

Benson, my tough butch cop of seasons past, I love you with all my body mind and body heart and body soul. Please please please come back. I cannot take any more of this shag-haired unprettily crying soon-to-be-preggers* dipshit weeping around in your place.

Also, OMG NONUNSTABLER!! I knew all that time I had spent this week clapping my hands and going "I do believe in Stablers, I do I do I do!" would pay off.

Recap will be up sometime tomorrow, I hope. For this episode, I taped it and took notes and everything.

*I guess this has not been 100% confirmed, but I am NOT liking what I am seeing on the TWoP SVU spoiler forum. At ALL.




(you have to put it there, lest someone who didn't want to be spoiled attempt to leave a comment)

For some reason, during the last 30 minutes of that ep, I got the distinct impression that Stabler was always ::thisclose:: to shedding a tear. And not unprettily either.

Unless his eyes were all red and misty because he got into the PW's stash. That's a possibility as well.

Well, yeah, but he wasn't on the verge of killing anyone. He can be as unStable as he likes as long as he quits it with the perp smashups.

(Maybe last week was actually a turning point for him? Except... wouldn't that mean... the Pot Weasels were thinking in terms of CONTINUITY? It cannot be so.)

Well, yeah, but he wasn't on the verge of killing anyone.

Oh! That's not what I meant. Just that it was nice seeing an emotion that wasn't actually OMGKILLPERP! or Violate!Civil!Liberties!Now!

Also, Stabler not-really-crying prettily is *so* much better than Olivia crying unprettily. I *still* get goosebumps over that scene in "Pandora" with Elliot and the little girl (Amy was her name, I think).

Aha! So we thought the same thing, and said the same thing, and still managed to think we were disagreeing. Rock. ;)

And yeah, Chris Meloni is a hell of an actor. Why in GOD'S name is he Emmyless?!

If you're referring to...those spoilers, then...yeah. Barf.

Yeah, I won't get to see this episode until tomorrow. TOMORROW! And there's CASEY GOODNESS! I think you know what needs to be done. A recap in dialogue format! Oh, wait, is this the part where I state the obvio-- oopsie

I'm working on it, but just FYI, I somehow got handed a lot of work to do today (can you believe the nerve of my job, giving me WORK?! feh!), and I'm going to be out of town until Friday. So if it's not up today, it will be up Saturday, hopefully.
