OK, we all know that Law & Order: SVU has quite a devoted fandom to the NBC crime show. But they have an idea for it, please.

With Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T holding down the criminals, what in the world would fans want now?

A thread from Reddit gives us some information. It is titled, “A victim the team saved grows up and joins the team.”

This Law & Order: SVU fan writes: “Considering how long the show has been going on, would anyone else like to see someone who was once a victim grow up, join the SVU team, because they had once been saved by Benson, Stabler, or Fin years ago? For example, a child from the episode Care, Maggie’s “Son” in Chameleon or Amy from Pandora, all would be in their mid-20s, and all were saved by the team. I think it might make for a decent story, even if they don’t join the team, just simply help out in a case.”

‘Law & Order: SVU’ Fan Offers Thought About Calvin Becoming Cop

Another fan writes: “I remember them talking about doing this with Jennifer love Hewitt years ago but it never happened.” Then this Redditor replies: “No… Jennifer Love Hewitt is on 9-1-1 on Fox. So I don’t see that happening.”

Then, this Law & Order: SVU fan states: “I’ve thought about Calvin being a cop from the small town he moved to with his grandparents reaching out to Olivia for help on a case or something being a cool storyline or being a csi team member. Really just mentioning him again at all. Maria from 911 being a child psychologist would be cool too.”

And there is this reply: “Calvin was way more interesting than Tiny Dancer Sweet Boy.”

Star Talks About Role Father Mickey Hargitay Had In Her Career

Mickey Hargitay taught his daughter Mariska a few things.

One was a lesson that she sadly learned at a very young age.

See, Mariska Hargitay’s mother was actress Jayne Mansfield.

But that message from Mickey? “The message I got from my father was that life is hard, but you just don’t quit,” the SVU star said in an interview. “I’d get an audition and he’d say, ‘How hard are you going to work for it?’ So I pushed myself even when I didn’t feel like pushing myself.”

Mansfield died in a car crash. Mariska and her two brothers were in the backseat.

They would go and live with Mickey.
