Romance is complicated on Law & Order: SVU, but it’s especially complicated when characters start to have feelings for their co-workers. While Sonny Carisi (Peter Scanavino) and Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) have never revealed their feelings for one another, it’s clear there’s something brewing.
In this deleted scene from Season 20, Carisi opens up to his boss, Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay), about Rollins and reveals he just wants her to be happy. Does Benson sense there could be more there than he’s willing to admit?
“You know Carisi, I know better than anyone how easy it is to get close to someone that you’re working with,” Olivia tells him, evoking memories of her past with partner Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni). Watch the clip above to see the sweet moment between these two that never made it to air.
