Rafael Barba (Raúl Esparza) may sadly no longer be the assistant DA on Law & Order: SVU, but it doesn’t mean we can’t flashback a couple of seasons and remember the good times.
In this deleted scene from Season 18, Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) welcomes Barba back after he was suspended. Not wanting to come empty-handed, she appears with a gift and a new case to work on.
“You are very polite. Turns out that being suspended without pay is less than ideal,” Barba tells Benson when she hands him a box of chocolates. Watch the clip above to see these two back in action!
