Chris Talks Why Stabler & Benson Never Hooked Up
christopher meloni online    March 31, 2016    0 comments

In his recent appearance on INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO with James Lipton, Chris explained why when he was on LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT his character of Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) never hooked up. I’d have to say I agree with him. There should never have been any flirtation with the exception that Neal Baer wanted to give Olivia a family and a love life. I think it would have been such a wrong thing considering too that Elliot was in love with Kathy (Isabel Gillies) and his kids. At no point during the first six and a half seasons did we get any hint of any earnings with Benson, but then Dick Wolf was still fully in charge. When he went off to start his film company he left, bad mistake, Baer in charge who clearly had taken a shining to Benson due to his prior relationship with Hargitay on ER. I’m editorializing I know, but what I said is no less true. Onto what Chris said.

Chris Meloni Explains Why Benson & Stabler Didn’t Hook Up

Rachel and Ross got together. Jim and Pam hooked up and got married. Benson and Stabler…well…never did a damn thing.

Though Chris Meloni no longer stars on Law & Order: SVU, fans are still wondering why he and Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson never used those handcuffs on one another (wink, wink). Sure, Stabler was married, but he and Kathy’s separation would have made an office romance possible (and it did, though unfortunately with a different detective). Benson, meanwhile, had her own dating life and a schedule jam-packed with, you know, kicking ass. Still, couldn’t they have snuck in one little make-out session?

Meloni shed some light on why a hookup never happened during his appearance on Inside the Actors Studio, airing tonight on Bravo.

“I think they [the producers] always knew [a romance] would be the death knell of that relationship,” he said. “I think they needed to keep that line taut and very clear… Keep the tension, never cross it.”

Ugh, fine. We can still ship, though, right?
