Law and Order: SVU NewsLaw and Order: SVU’s Mariska Hargitay Is ‘In For a Rough Ride’, From Dann Florek

 

Here’s the Spoilers For Law and Order: SVU  From Michael Ausiello’s Ask Ausiello at  TVLine on Sept. 17th, 2013.

 

Question: I spent all summer figuring out how Law and Order: SVU will #SaveBenson! Any hints on the premiere? –Erica

Ausiello: It’s “harrowing, challenging and worthwhile,” says Dann Florek of the two-hour opener, which picks up right where the finale left off — with Mariska Hargitay’s Benson being held at gunpoint by William “Burnt Fingertips” Lewis. “I had no idea what was going to happen [in the premiere],” adds the actor, “so when we sat down and read it, first of all I was very moved by it and challenged by it. And then I thought, ‘Boy, Mariska is in for a rough ride.’” Meanwhile, even though the episode is two hours, Law and Order: SVU executive producer Warren Leight says he’s “hesitant to call it a ‘two-parter,’” despite the fact that “the story plays out over both episodes. “That’s very different for SVU. We usually wipe the screen clean after each episode.”

 

Law and Order: SVU returns with episode 15×01 Surrender Benson on Wednesday Sept. 25th, 2013 9/8c on NBC.
