We can only hope!! Plus, it would be fun to see how he would interact with Amaro, Rollins and Barba, who all joined the cast after he left. Maybe Stabler could come back as a witness in some capacity. My feeling is that Stabler felt so guilty over shooting that girl in the squadroom in his final episode that he couldn't make himself come back there at all. So this could be a way for him to face those demons as well as facing Liv again as well.

I did. I actually thought it was better than usual. I've grown weary of the show because it seems like it's become even more exploitative than ever. But this particular episode did a really good job of showing how child pornography is not a victimless crime, in no small part due to the wonderful performance by the young woman who played "Lacy". I remember her from OLTL. She was very good.

I just love it when and eppy ends with a wacko walking off with a kid. Makes me all warm and fuzzy :(

I found it laughable that not one pedophile was arrested yet they are collecting data on peeps who watch child porn. While peeps who can watch children being violated and get pleasure out of it is lower than rat droppings, I still thought it was quite foolish that this much attention was given to this one young woman. Yes, she was the focus of the eppy, but it just didn't make sense to me.

The actress was excellent!

I officially HATE Rollins!

And I don't wish to offend anyone, but I'm super happy they didn't pursue the marital rape thing in this eppy. It's a waste of the court's time, IMHO!

Yeah um...at this point, I would have been ok with "The Death of Benson". She has become such a horrible character that has done more regressing than growing (3:1). MH/Benson have expired. She even sucks as a Captain. I'm ready for MH to do some comedy. Time for a change!

I liked the guy stepping in checking Benson, but in the end, she reverted to form. Dumped her severely inept detail and pretty much lost everything. I don't ever need to see her face again or this show for that matter! But, of course, I will continue to torture myself occasionally.

    • No such luck.  Colin threatened him and broke Leo's phone.  I don't even blame Colin.  After listening to Leo babble for long periods I think it's actually a normal human reaction to threaten Leo and break his phone.

    • I think the show could have easily pivoted Karen back to Jason if Jagger left and had her deal with college and the fall out from Scott being her father (even though I don't think Kin was on the show at the time lol).  I definitely think Karen had enough material for story without Jagger for a year. I could also see why they wrote her out due to the build up of the Karen/Jagger romance and the fact KMc was old enough to carry her own teen story.   Karen wasn't necessary anymore.  I do think it would have been nice for Karen to be around for Stone/Robin.  I have always found Jagger/Karen's absence fairly glaring in an otherwise near perfect story. I agree Brenda hugely benefitted from Jagger/Karen leaving.  She could get development/focus, she could be paired with Sonny without constant reminders of the Karen relationship, and it allowed Brenda to be aged up into adult stories fairly easily with her main peers not around.   I think Brenda could have lasted without Sonny.  She is another character you could easily pair up with AJ/Jason until Jason has his accident and then pair her up with Ingo once he was cast.  Since Ingo was hired for Lois/Rena I'll go with the assumption he would have been cast regardless of what Brenda was doing.  Obviously, no telling how successful she would have been, but I have no problem seeing Brenda still being a major player in 90's stories without Sonny.   Vanessa/Brenda really didn't have much competition in her age range at that time. I do see the comparison with Casey/Julia. As far as Julia, I think she got lumped in with all the other Monty failures at the time even though she seemed to have the most potential.  I have never understood the reasoning not to re-visit Julia at any length especially in the 90's.  
    • While I always take anything new this show does with a massive GOS, the fact that Zeke is in this week's promo with Drew leaves me cold to the character before he even gets going.  Must everything be tied to Sonny or Carly?  
    • A few years ago, there was a certain number of the banking and business sectors that tried to promote the idea of a “cashless” society and at first, I was willing to hear them out but upon hearing more information, I decided that it would eventually become another facet of a divide along socioeconomic lines, with the ‘haves’ benefiting and the ‘have nots’ being at a marked disadvantage. We’re already getting a taste of the repercussions of this with some establishments that have tried to deny cash payments, for example an upscale fast-casual eatery called Sweetgreen (very popular here in the Northeast U.S.) which was forced to reverse their anti-cash policy after a severe backlash once the policy became public. Well, they do say that necessity is the mother of invention and necessity, and I guess necessity can also provide the incentive to transform and refigure.
