Christopher Meloni is killing it right now. He's at the top of his game and the best he's ever been.


LilLexi20

He’s in his prime right now. Physically, career wise, everything. I feel blessed to see him on my screen each week


wish4111

Could not possibly agree more. I don't see Christopher Meloni *or* Elliot Stabler when I see Eddie Wagner. I love it when an actor "dissolves" into the character, and now CM is doing it twice. And he looks mighty fine while he's doing it, too.


shaycode

Do I see some sparks flying between Jet and Malachi? 👀


EightMasks_1128

IS THAT HER NAME?! I've just been calling her Garcia this whole time...


bayalyboo

Bahahaha. I mean, if the shoe fits… I feel like Sloot is Garcia 2.0. Like a dark emo Garcia. And I dig it.


ButterscotchPast4812

Yup! Jet slootsmaker.


nosvpg

might as well call her TARU


Ok-Grapefruit8338

He was definitely giving her heart eyes


MrsCorleone

Lowkey ship it


Adventurous_Deer

Highkey ship it


cfinboston

I did too, but it was ridiculously unrealistic that they just leave him handcuffed to a desk for hours. It's like they need him in the scene but they have to explain him not being in jail.


medusa_hair

Are we supposed to believe that a big Albanian mobster has no surveillance or alarm system in his house?


LilLexi20

Idk, I’m not a criminal and I don’t trust cameras/security systems. All they do is record your own comings and going’s. An old school Albanian might not want all the bells and whistles


CleanAssociation9394

Plus he has guys sneaking in


Vivid_Dust

Wouldn't she turn it off if she was inviting another man over?


Sodontellscotty

If she even knows about it! He probably got something from the guy who gave them the first encrypted phones.


waniel239

Sure, he’s no Wheatley, but


p3ngu1n333

Could it be a silent alarm? That’s why he came home when he was supposed to be away?


TheSyrupDrinker

Why would either be set when they were home😂


shaycode

Stabler’s friendship with the waitress is so sweet 🥲


miss_scarlet_letter

so wholesome


AmantedeiLibri

Trafficking? Is this the SVU tie in?


savagemom10

I wonder if McGrath would be like this ain't important since people trafficked from Albania are not daughters of cops 🙄


electracide

I wouldn’t mind seeing a Stabler vs McGrath show down


Sodontellscotty

From what we’ve seen so far, McGrath will probably be the buffoon that blows Stabler’s cover. Or his UC. Whatever that guys name is.


Standard_Aide_521

That’s what I was thinking too!


LilLexi20

Yes 🙌 100%


savagemom10

Stabler is unraveling. Poor guy needs a therapist not a UC mission.


bayalyboo

I think Elliot enjoyed that just a tad too much 😅


Bubblystrings

Oh they know they're wrong with that phone call to Olivia.


bayalyboo

I have a feeling he grabbed that badge to leave it for her or something in case this goes bad.


electracide

iirc it’s his old badge number?


ButterscotchPast4812

I believe so.


3ismyluckynumber

Yeah, I literally laughed out loud when he mentioned the “I love you” and then the ol’ “if you’re satisfied with your message…”. Too funny. I hope they don’t draw this out all season because I’m honestly not into these random little comments. These are two adults who have known each other for years. You’re telling me they can’t sit down and have an honest conversation about their feelings?


waniel239

The mission can’t be *this* important


bayalyboo

I feel like he may even surpass Brian Cassidy’s level of wild, and that’s kind of hard to top. That man set a whole new bar.


RescueMom728

He’s convincing himself it is


trilltripz

Lmaoo Malachi and Jet crack me up 😂


MrsCorleone

The fist bump sent me 😭


cfinboston

I know. I loved the flirtation between those two.


4-for-u-glen-coco

I hope he becomes a regular.


savagemom10

Why is Stabler going after each bad guy's wife 😶 first Angela and now this lady


Bubblystrings

These kinds of plots are probably half the actual reason they killed Kathy. Like, it was part Olivia, part secret-agent-Stabler-man-gettin'-opp.


Successful_Candy_688

So basically he’s been made the James T Kirk of Law and Order??? 😳


ButterscotchPast4812

But like at least Chris knows he's bald and rolls with it.


Bubblystrings

I love this analogy.


girliegirl1234

What in the 1987 is this outfit?


redheadedrec

She reminds me of the warden from holes


satansmainsqueeze

i’m dying because albi had the same pattern in his jacket earlier lol


Sodontellscotty

I’m assuming you meant the wife…could also apply to the zippy sleeveless hoodie though.


miss_scarlet_letter

people tend to like the clothing from the era they "peaked" in, lmao.


Sodontellscotty

I peaked in ‘07. I hope to god I never venture back to that era of clothes.


miss_scarlet_letter

low rise jeans under skirts and enormous, purposeless belts are coming for you. actually that may have been slightly earlier than 07.


YoNoQuieroBoda

I have Albanian relatives and that's pretty much how they all dress.


RescueMom728

Sargent Bell get your man


bayalyboo

Did we really just get Dick Wolf’d at that? What a way to end it.


EasternAdventures

He gave her his Dick Wolf


waniel239

😕


bizarro_liz

😂😂🤣🤣


shaycode

Yeah, we need another crossover episode. He’s getting way too deep (no pun intended)


EasternAdventures

Pun definitely intended


LilLexi20

And I’m living for it


shaycode

It’s definitely keeping me on the edge of my seat!


KaterWaiter

I mean I guess I get it, he can’t turn her down without pissing her off and potentially risking the mission and his life. But still, eugh!!!


ButterscotchPast4812

She called him out on being nervous and he's like I have no choice now. I'm not prepared with silly knockout drugs. I guess I'm gonna have to go for it.


Sodontellscotty

Hopefully that Winnebago is bugged and Sloot comes in for the rescue.


electracide

This. I think he’ll flip her to further the bigger catch ala last episode. The end was a red herring.


Fyrebyrne

Oh he'll flip her all right xD


KaterWaiter

I mean how can Stabler blame Mrs. Albi for coming onto him when he’s wearing that zip tank like that…


AmazingObligation9

Ok he’s off the fucking leash


miss_scarlet_letter

MRS ALBI IS THE REBOUND? LMAO


Bubblystrings

I was just coming back to point that out. His first since Kathy.


miss_scarlet_letter

I actually love it. I'm enjoying this show tremendously.


Bubblystrings

I must admit that I am entertained. You're sitting here like, "this is L&O and this is Stabler, they won't let him do that." And then the writers like, "alright bet."


miss_scarlet_letter

yes! it's so much fun!


AbbiejeanKane

We don't know that. I bet Elliot has had his fair share of women since Kathy died.


Bubblystrings

That's true. Though I do think it's only been like 6 months since Kathy died and he'd have needed to have them while also messing around with Angela and whatever torch he's carrying for Olivia.


yipppppp

I hope the next episode is the end of his UC because this man needs therapy


Dio5000

>I hope the next episode is the end of his UC because this man needs therapy Lmao but facts


electracide

Elliot the bar is literally on the floor.


shaycode

One thing about Stabler is that he’s definitely gonna shoot someone lmao


trilltripz

I smell another SVU crossover baby!


AmantedeiLibri

The gold lamé is a crime in itself.


AbbiejeanKane

LOL!


medusa_hair

Oh no bb what is u doin


Successful_Candy_688

Although that ending made a wince, I’m not really upset by it. It makes sense with the arc they’re going for in these first 8 episodes. He’s trying to play his role well but in doing so he’s losing himself as well. The first season kicked started the beginning of his dissent into a world he’s never entered before. He’s single, he’s technically free to be with the woman he loves. But he’s also suffering from guilt, PTSD and extremely confused. By the end of the first season, everything is starting to collapse on him and he has to scream from the top of his lungs “I NEED HELP”. But in order for him to get help, he needs to make the active choice of helping himself and start being honest with all the feelings he’s been holding in. And that’s what season 2 is showing. He puts himself in the middle of an undercover mission, thinking he can do it because he’s good at his job. And as he admits to Olivia, a part of him likes that he doesn’t have to be him for awhile. I think at this time he’s not feeling great as Elliot Stabler. At least as Eddie he can escape some of that self-loathing. But as we see here, he’s starting to get too into his role. And it’s not just with this guy’s wife, it’s earlier on. Punching that dude’s head into the plate, taking out a lot of anger and not being told off is perhaps stimulating for someone who’s dealing with so much rage right now. And the one person who he would like to be with seems too far away in his mind (plus she has her own problems she’s got to work through as well) due to his own securities and of course, UC job.


ButterscotchPast4812

I really just need my boy to go to some therapy! Like damn! Plus like it wouldn't hurt for him and olivia to do couples therapy too.


AmantedeiLibri

That’s not exactly flirting with the line, Elliot. That’s a big step across.


LoretiTV

This season is firing on all cylinders, see everyone next week!


LoretiTV

Bearded Stabler is badass, enjoy the new episode everyone!


shaycode

Just leave two voicemails, dammit!!! Or a voice message!


bayalyboo

Freakin technology. Why’s it always have to crap out when you need it.


Bubblystrings

Oh of course you need to bring bae in on this.


Sodontellscotty

How much does Stabler have to walk the line before something happens to him? He was worried they’d kill him over the Luca thing, he doesn’t think they’re going to care about sleeping with Mrs. Albi? Albi just saved him, way to prove your loyalty.


Sodontellscotty

What do you think Elliott gave the waitress in that book? A note? Liv’s card? He definitely slipped her something.


electracide

Nah. It would compromise the mission.


shaycode

Good. He needs Finn and (mostly) Olivia to set him straight 😂


trilltripz

Stabler GET IT TOGETHER MAN


medusa_hair

🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️ this man has a death wish


AnarchyPlus

Guy survives I bet, so Stabler will get reprimanded and they'll be a bit of drama but no death on his conscience


EasternAdventures

He lost his mind lol


AmazingObligation9

Whys he getting in with this guys wife too how will this benefit him?


ButterscotchPast4812

I think he realized that she knows more than she let's on and he was right. Pretty sure she's the trafficker and not Albi.


laperla312

Right???? I was thinking that, too. I swear, she’s had my sympathy until now but not if she’s trafficking those poor girls


ButterscotchPast4812

To add on to this. He started talking to her when he thought that Albi had killed one of her lovers because Reggie implied that Albi was jealous and would totally kill Elliot is he was messing around with Flutura. Which then, I think made him wonder about Flutura himself. Even though Elliot had been out of svu for a decade, he's still got that instinct. He's been in svu for a long freaking time. Roughly 18 years if he had been there since 93. And he was worried about that one girl who dissappeared from the diner. Which may have been a reason why he got close to Flutura so he could get inside their house to snoop. The way I see Flutura is a true mob boss kinda wife. She knows the kind of business her husband is in and she is involved with it. She loves the lifestyle and may even know her husband is gay (I'm not sure on this). She loves the money and the power. I don't see her like Angela. Angela is a good person that did a horrible thing because she was manipulated and fell in love with the wrong guy. Anywho that's just my speculation about the situation.


AmazingObligation9

Ok what the fuck


Bubblystrings

Can you imagine what a bitch ass that guy was for running back and tattling on Elliot? "Boss, he hit me. Waaahhh."


britbmw

I just loved the shit eating grin he had when Elliot went into the office, then he was pissed like a little bitch boy when Kosta didn’t kill him.


waniel239

Nice to know Elliot’s built different


Bubblystrings

How do you even explain that later? She's gonna know she was roofied.


medusa_hair

He literally was SVU, how did he not foresee this possibility 😂


Bubblystrings

OH NO! That's gonna be the next crossover episode!


electracide

You know, they *would* 😂


electracide

Ohhh you know tho, the trafficked waitresses really could be!


Bubblystrings

Ohhhh, you're absolutely right!


EasternAdventures

Yeah I feel like he could have handled that a whole lot better lol


girliegirl1234

No, Elliot!


MetalQueenX

I guess luka got his sunny side down by chef sabler. 😂


AnarchyPlus

Jet had some get me the fuck out of here eyes for a second


gopack1217

I couldn’t watch tonight because of work. But seeing all of y’all’s reactions make me so excited to watch tomorrow! I love the chaos!


Bubblystrings

Noooooooooooooo


electracide

I am shook.


MrsCorleone

I wanna see Jet and Munch, if he ever came back, interact, I feel like it’s the dry humor


trilltripz

The message for Olivia…my shipper heart can’t take this


Adventurous_Deer

I really enjoy the extended storylines that OC is doing. I had to remind myself multiple times tonight that he won't die he is suppose to be in the rest of the season Editing to add, can you imagine how absolutely weird it must be to film that last scene where is he looking down and taking his shirt off? Some poor soul/lucky bastard had to lie down somewhere to film at the right angle to get that shot while the director stood there going "nah, one more time, look hotter/freak out the viewers just a smidge more"


electracide

Is this Evan Peters long lost twin at the poker table?


thehauntedmattress

Flush.


ReasonableCoyote34

There’s the Elliott I know and love


bayalyboo

I can’t with these Stabler goodbyes… 😭


Brocolli_rabebabe

Eww stabler's face right before ughhh


EightMasks_1128

Kathy died so Stabler could fuck around with random women. Wow.


medusa_hair

“We were happy” okay Elliot


20Keller12

He's playing a role. You honestly think he wants to fuck around with a sex trafficker?


waniel239

Why Dick, why?


Bubblystrings

Ewww


RescueMom728

Wtf


pikachu-atlanta

WTF was that, Elliot?


AmazingObligation9

Ok what the FUCK is happening!!!!


sweetcaroline88

ELLIOT NO!


britbmw

Well. I am a bit angry at that ending.


ursularussell

Is this a crossover episode tonight? I need some EO!


bayalyboo

Welp, looks like we got our EO… just not the way we wanted it 😅


electracide

Don’t think so :(


RescueMom728

What r u doing !


[deleted]

A crushing blow to EO shippers across the country


LilLexi20

I’m an EO shipper and I don’t mind Elliot having a little casual sex.. especially that scene at the end dear god 🥵🥵🥵😅


bluelightsonblkgirls

Not really, I’m here for Elliot dating since we’ve never seen it — I just feel he could’ve done better than this thirsty ass mob woman 🤣🤣


waniel239

I think that was Elliot


RescueMom728

And there it is


DungeonFam30

Maldonado is good people for saving Stabler and just being a trooper throughout the whole operation. Hope they give him more to do as the season rolls on. And, it's good to see less arguing from Bell and Brewster. I'm left confused at revelation that Albi is sterile, since Luca is engaged to his daughter. Wondering if the Marcy Killers are going to become featured more after the Albanians, with everything circling back to Richard Wheatley toward the close of the season. Overall, I'm enjoying this season a bit more than Season 1. It's interesting how Stabler is in the spot of Gina from last season, but, with an added certainty that he'll survive (at least, physically), while I was worried about her in every episode.


landsear

It's not Albie's daughter. It's the guy who did the talking at the wrestling gyms daughter. He valued Albie's opinion.


DungeonFam30

Wait. Forgot what I said, as I got mixed up thinking that she was Kosta's wife the whole time.


satansmainsqueeze

OH that ending just made me SICK


LilLexi20

I know it’s been way too long since I’ve gotten laid when that scene with Fluterra and stabler POV scene at the end made me hot 🥵 😂😂😂😂😂


AmazingObligation9

I mean the ending scene of him about to get on top of her was hot AF


RescueMom728

🤢


ReasonableCoyote34

The thirst is real lol


turtlehelp1234556

would albi even be mad about this I mean elliot knows his secret


KaterWaiter

Oh for sure he’d still be furious. He’s one of those guys that has zero sexual interest in his wife but still doesn’t want her banging anyone else because she’s *his* property. ESPECIALLY someone in his organization.


laperla312

They are absolutely killing it with Stabler’s transformation into Eddie Ashes. No detail has been overlooked- the old, poor quality tattoos, sunburnt chest, hoarse voice, vocabulary, even the most minute movements like looking up from a menu say convict. Masterful.


[deleted]

Ugh. I hope they don’t make his life in danger every episode. I hate that.


AmazingObligation9

Did stabler fire that shot???????


savagemom10

I really hope this girl is not a bad person.


TheNewEnnui

I’m confused…Did he leave the message for Benson or did he delete it?!


electracide

He deleted and went to re record but then hung up. So she’ll just have a missed call.


TheNewEnnui

I want the other person’s reply to be the right one but I think you’re correct 😢 I was distracted and didn’t hear what the recording said after it ran out.


britbmw

I don’t think he deleted it. He was calling back to finish the message he started but then just hung up.


trilltripz

Stabler noooo


britbmw

What the FUCK


bayalyboo

Smooth, Stabler.


trilltripz

What the hell Elliot


miss_scarlet_letter

did anyone record the preview? all I saw was the last scene with Stabler with a knife to his throat.


lionessrampant25

Okay! I have a crazy but maybe not so crazy theory for next week. A mirror of Gitano but this time it’s Elliot with a knife to his throat and Liv coming in to save the day.


-vicioustrollop-

I just caught up on all of this season's episodes so far. Wow! The S2 story line has me hooked. I wasn't a huge fan of S1 (the whole Wheatley crime fam seemed too contrived), but I'm loving Stabler embedded with the Albanians. As so many have said before me, Meloni is in his prime. And I *love* Jet. She's definitely my fave side character of all the L&O series combined.


22AgentBrown

Stabler is getting in too deep . He's losing himself into madness


Dio5000

Stabler going in balls deep both litterslly and undercover wise lol


laperla312

Unpopular opinion: I’m tired of the Stabler/Benson will they/won’t they. I love them individually, but not together. IMO they never had much romantic chemistry and it’s frustrating when there are so many far more interesting subplots to explore. Jet and Malachi- that’s chemistry. My guess is that underneath all that cockiness there’s a sad hot boy thing going on that will be teased out and appeal to Jet. As for everyone bagging about Flutura being gross, I’m betting 9/10 are below her league and would bang her in a heartbeat.


scottfiab

Something is buggy me about Stabler living in that rv as part of his undercover profile. How much time does he spend there? He just happened to be there when Reggie showed up unexpectedly to warn him about what he did at the diner? And he's also there when Flutura shows up? He must really be living the part when he's not spending a maximum of ten minutes at the office discussing the next steps and whatnot.


savagemom10

Who was taking the photos of Stabler and Kosta?


Sodontellscotty

Isn’t he on their team? I thought he was the one who asked when they were going to call for back up.


TheSyrupDrinker

He was these guys obviously weren't paying attention


TheSyrupDrinker

The other cop who was talking on the radio


[deleted]

Why are they making Stabler into a manwhore? Jesus


AmantedeiLibri

With his track record, I hope he’s suiting up first. That man can’t make that much money.


cfinboston

The actress playing Flutura is 60. Pregnancy isn't going to be a problem.


JLMMM

Single for the first time in his life and he’s mentally messed up? I’m not a fan, but not really mad about it either.


LilLexi20

Well it’s not stabler it’s Eddie Wagner


amybindc

That HAD to be a dream sequence... 🤢


hunkyfunk12

am i the only one who thinks this whole thing with flutura is really fucked up like, ethically? he literally drugged her and now we’re being led to believe he’s having sex with her as he’s living a double life in order to get more shit on her so he can arrest her and the people she’s affiliated with. is sex like that really consensual?? it seems so fucked up and disturbing to me and i can’t believe his character would ever do that… this would truly ruin the show for me =\


thekidslovefranklin

Yes! Him drugging Flutura was really messed up. Definitely meant to show him getting in way over his head in this UC gig and doing super questionable things ethically. No way Bell authorized that, lol.


AbbiejeanKane

WTF, Elliot.


savagemom10

What the shit 🤯


ct2707

Ew Stabler no no no


kellikopter

Edit: thanks for catching me up! Upvotes for everybody that answered! I had to take the garbage to the curb and lost context. Did she drug him and he switched the drinks or did she just pass out from the wine?


Bubblystrings

No he roofied her.


EasternAdventures

He drugged her lol


AmantedeiLibri

He drugged her.
