Fans are having fits over a new trailer that’s out for Law & Order: SVU and it shows Benson and Stabler close to kissing. Ah, the stress of long-time fans waiting for them to get close. For more than 20 years, faithful L&O fans have been waiting for this moment to occur. And it appears that the moment has finally arrived. Check out the new trailer below, and be sure to take a close look at the 1:23-minute mark in the video. NBC released this trailer through Spoiler TV.

When talking about loyalty to the show’s characters, one fan expressed themselves quite clearly on Twitter when it comes to Benson and Stabler. “Love watching Law & Order Organized Crime and SVU, but I want to see more interaction between Benson and Stabler. I thought the whole reason they brought him back is to reunite them and for them to be together like it should have been.” They aren’t going anywhere. Hardcore fans want to see Benson and Stabler finally get together.

Fans have been connected to the Benson-Stabler connection since it first came up. Mariska Hargitay plays Olivia Benson; Chris Meloni plays Elliot Stabler. While Stabler once was Benson’s partner in dealing with crime, Meloni left Law & Order: SVU a few years ago. But he did come back to the franchise and start up Law & Order: Organized Crime. Of course, this has led to some crossover work between their shows.

Will ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Fans Get Their Long-Awaited Payoff Between Benson and Stabler?

It does not hurt that Benson and Stabler remain close. This is where Law & Order: SVU fans can put their hopes into getting a kiss. With Meloni back in the saddle as Stabler, hope is still alive for a highly-anticipated romantic moment with Benson. However, one thing is clear from the trailer: Show creator Dick Wolf isn’t done building up the tension just yet.

Benson opened up a little bit about her feelings for Stabler in what was Kelli Giddish‘s last episode as Detective Amanda Rollins. In one scene, Benson, while chatting with Rollins, started talking about Stabler. The conversation lasted a little bit but did not go into deep details. Why? Because the show’s focus was partly around Rollins.

Fans of the show are expecting Benson and Stabler to eventually kiss and become involved romantically. They either might be through the roof or getting cooled down. As fans have stated, they are dedicated to Benson and Stabler. So, if you are of those fans who have been around since Season 1, then you will have to keep on watching. Law & Order: SVU airs on Thursday nights on NBC.
