All Things Law And Order: Law & Order SVU “Gambler’s Fallacy” Recap & Review
Exclusive! Get a first look at Imposter, the upcoming episode of SVU. When she attempted to recuse the girl, Lewis forced her into a game of brief, shocking thing that happened between Rollins and Amaro. Law & Order: SVUfans were both surprised and elated when it was revealed late last season that Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and Amaro (Danny.
She changed her mind. Three Amanda's bed, amid already-rumpled sheets and clean but unfolded laundry, where they decided this was going to be happening pretty often, but it wasn't going to be A Thing, and they definitely weren't going to tell anyone about it.
Four and Five The basement storage room at the precinct, because Nick didn't think Amanda could be quiet. So they did it in the break room, too. Six After Nick beat up Simon Wilkes and got arrested and she was his one phone call because hers was the face he wanted to see, hers was the scent he needed to breathe after the blood and the sweat and the booking room and the holding cell, hers was the support he knew he could count on without judgment or questions or condemnation or seriously, Nick?
Haven't you learned anything? Then Munch bailed him out and Wilkes dropped the charges and Nick was pretty sure Amanda had something to do with why. He went over to her place, unsure of how to thank her, or what, exactly, to thank her for, except he ended up not saying anything, because when she opened the door and saw it was him, she yanked him inside and kissed him. They did it on the futon. That was the last place they did it for a while.
Seven He hadn't called for a few weeks. He was in Queens, she heard, doing traffic stops or something, as punishment for wailing on Wilkes. He got off easy, all things considered, and she knew that, but she was still pissed about it because she hadn't expected him to just disappear. It was never A Thing, so she wasn't supposed to be surprised, or upset, when he didn't return her calls. She was both anyway. He didn't want her to see him.
Not like this, with the uniform and the drunk-and-disorderlies and the license and registration, please. But there she was, in his precinct, and next thing he knew she was hatching some crazy plan so he could be back at SVU without being back at SVU, with the undercover-while-still-in-uniform, cop on the take act.
He remembered how hot it had been the other time she used her cuffs on him. He still didn't call her that night. He just came over.
Eight and Nine Olivia sent them to Winnipeg to chase down a lead. They didn't know if Liv knew, but they were pretty sure she didn't, or she wouldn't have sent them together. Will anyone in the squad find out? I'll put it this way: It's not a regular run-of-the-mill, 9-to-5 job. It is a squad room full of inquisitive, instinctual detectives who have a nose for things being off. So what is happening behind the scenes may begin to pique certain characters' interests.
Mega Buzz: Are Rollins and Amaro Still Together on SVU? | TV Guide
But at the same time, you're dealing with a former undercover cop and a cop who's been undercover before in Amaro and Rollins, so they're pretty good at hiding as well.
I think that is one of the things that I'm looking forward to in the coming episodes; to really find out whether it is ever revealed.
I don't know whether it's ever revealed, but I do know that we have very smart detectives all around us. The smallest slip-up could blow the whole roof off of it. Warren Leight has said that the season finale is a big episode for your character.
What can you tease about what Amaro will be going through? In the finale, Amaro stands to lose not only his family, but his career. And it could happen that quickly and that easily, and it's only his current friends and perhaps some very close friends from the past who he has to rely on to get him out of the situation.
So will Laura Benanti return for that episode? Laura Benanti will be in the episode prior, in the penultimate episode.
Where We Left Off And What To Expect On 'Law & Order: SVU' Season 16
What can you say about Maria and Amaro's dynamic? He's positive and he feels that he is going to be able to bring his family back under the same roof ultimately. He's resolved to make that happen. He's one of those people, and I feel like maybe a lot of us are, that when things are crumbling around you, all you want to do is restore where you find the most peace at all costs.
That relationship with Maria and Zara, his daughter — they represent peace to him. Then again, he is not clear-eyed in his perception of what Maria's intentions are, which only leads to disappointment and for him to act out, which is what gets him in trouble in the finale.
It's been a big year for your character not only because of the family issues that he's been dealing with, but also because of the shooting.
What kind of impact have these events had on Amaro?
Amaro, certainly from the beginning, is a cop who likes to dot his i's and cross his t's and do everything the right way.
Shooting the unarmed teenager was a pivotal moment for him. It was an example of his not being able to control certain situations and his frustration in that. That has certainly caused a stress at work. It's driven his family away from him. He worked narcotics, and he was in the warrants bureau prior to coming to SVU. Narcotics, undercover, warrants — these are high-stress situations and he was able to maintain his family, and have some level of some happiness.
It was only upon coming into SVU that things started to crumble around him personally. The things that he sees everyday and the conversations he has to have everyday with survivors, perpetrators, witnesses leave an indelible mark on him and I think that's what Maria sees which is why I think she wanted to leave and take their daughter with her.
Amaro feels like he can keep all these balls in the air and that first ball that fell was shooting this teenager and after that, he lost his focus.
He's really his worst enemy and the more he tries to stay above water, the more he struggles, the more he's actually harming himself. In the finale, it's ultimately the relationships that he has around him, the friendships he has within the squad room that save him.
Do you think he'll ever be able to get closure over the shooting? I don't know if you ever get closure. I read a lot about police officers who shot unarmed victims, unarmed subjects and some of the things that I read were just after the shooting and then I was able to find some articles that interviewed these police officers several years after an incident and it's just not something you get over.
