Law & Order: SVU season 25 is back in production after being delayed due to strikes by the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA. This is a monumental year for the show, as it marks its 25th season and continues to hold its place as the longest-running primetime live-action series on American television.
Recently, Mariska Hargitay, who is the star of the series, shared an exciting behind-the-scenes image on Instagram. In the photo, she can be seen wearing a compass necklace that her character, Olivia Benson, received as a gift from her former partner, Elliot Stabler
Meloni recently returned to the franchise in Law & Order: Organized Crime, and fans are hopeful that the reunion between the characters will finally happen. In the Law & Order crossover finale that aired in May 2023, Stabler presented Benson with the compass necklace. This gift symbolizes their history and the connection they share. Stabler explained that the compass would hopefully guide Benson towards happiness. The necklace itself features the initials E, L, C, and M, which likely represent the first names of the actors and their characters.
With the introduction of the compass necklace, there is a renewed sense of hope that Stabler and Benson will finally find happiness together. As production for the new season continues, fans can look forward to seeing how this storyline unfolds and what it means for the future of Law & Order: SVU.
