Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) was pregnant with her second child throughout Season 20 of Law & Order: SVU, which at times made it difficult for her to fully focus on her work. While she tried her best to be there for Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and the gang, she obviously needed to put her health first.
In this deleted scene from Season 20, Benson and Rollins discuss their on-going case, that is until Rollins starts feeling labor pains. Though she believes it’s just indigestion, Benson isn’t willing to take that risk.
“Rollins, this can wait. Go home….go home,” Benson says to Rollins before ushering her out of her office. Watch the deleted scene above to see how Rollins takes being sent home.
