[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for the Law & Order–SVU–Organized Crime crossover premiere event, “Gimme Shelter.”]
Regulation & Order, SVU, and Organized Crime kick off their seasons with a historic crossover occasion, and positive, it’s nice to see everybody working collectively, however heading into the episodes, we now have two easy questions: Will they arrange Detective Amanda Rollins’ (Kelli Giddish) exit?
It’s not till nearly midway by way of the third hour that it seems to do exactly that. Captain Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), Detective Frank Cosgrove (Jeffrey Donovan), and Detective Jalen Shaw (Mehcad Brooks) lead the investigation after a 15-year-old woman is killed, they usually uncover she was a part of a intercourse trafficking ring. Her assassin, Sirenko, kills one among Stabler’s CIs earlier than setting off a bomb in a lodge holding a NATO occasion, however the particular person behind all of it is Daniel Rublev, senior liaison to the president of Russia. Nicole, one other woman who was trafficked, is the one one who can authenticate a video by which Rublev spoke about the entire world understanding how highly effective Russia is, with one thing large and loud that can be all around the information.
As Rollins is leaving the secure home with Nicole and one other detective, three males begin taking pictures at them. When Nicole goes to run off, Rollins follows and is shot. However the different detective kills the shooter earlier than he can put one other bullet in Rollins.
By the point Benson arrives on scene, Rollins has been taken to the hospital. “Inform me she’s alive,” she says to the opposite detective. “I don’t know. There was quite a lot of blood. I attempted to cease the bleeding. She was alive when she left,” he admits. However the EMTs have been speaking to her, which needs to be an excellent signal, proper? ADA Sonny Carisi (Peter Scanavino) arrives on scene quickly after, and he’s, understandably, a large number. “Is she OK? Is she alive?” he calls for. Benson admits she’s undecided, however “Amanda is a really robust girl, and if anybody can survive a gunshot wound, we each know she will.” He hurries off to the hospital.
Rollins’ surgical procedure goes properly, and he or she’s in steady situation, however all they’ll do is hope for one of the best, Benson later shares with Nolan Worth (Hugh Dancy). And final we see her, with Carisi sitting by her bedside, Rollins is alive and it appears to be like like she’ll get better.
However may this result in her deciding it’s time to step again and go away SVU earlier than she doesn’t make it house to her daughters sooner or later? (Jamie Grey Hyder’s Kat had an exit alongside these traces, selecting to stroll away after an damage.) It definitely appears attainable … assuming the second episode of SVU isn’t going to see her struggling some critical problems from her wound.
