10/08/2014 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Wednesday): THE ARREST OF A TROUBLED ACTRESS LEADS TO AN INVESTIGATION OF THOSE CARING FOR HER
Amaro (Danny Pino) reports to the scene of a car crash where Hollywood starlet Tensley Evans (guest star Stevie Lynn Jones) tries to flirt her way out of an arrest. Amaro’s by-the-book handling of the situation gets him back on the SVU squad, just in time to investigate Tensley’s latest offense – the statutory rape of a 15 year-old boy. But Benson (Mariska Hargitay) suspects that underlying issues may have led to Tensley’s downward spiral – is the victimizer also a victim? Also starring Kelli Giddish (Detective Amanda Rollins) and Raúl Esparza (ADA Rafael Barba). Also guest starring Peter Scanavino (Detective Carisi), Brian d’Arcy James (Adam Brubeck), Dana Wheeler-Nicholson (Donna Evans), Ron Rifkin (Counselor Marvin Exley), Gary Milner (Dennis George), Drigan Lee (Brody Clark), TBD (Dr. Jim Durant), Kaitlyn Bausch (Maude Peterson) and Hoda Kotb (as herself).
Amaro and Rollins ‘shippers are in for some bad news: It looks like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’s budding couple are on the rocks now that Amaro is no longer on the SVU squad.
After being demoted to traffic patrol in Queens, Amaro will cross paths with his former partners when he arrests who turns out to be a material witness in the investigation into who killed the mother of Benson’s foster child last season. But there seems to be some trouble in paradise since Amaro’s been dodging Rollins’ calls. Check out an exclusive sneak peek from the SVU premiere:
Law & Order: SVU returns Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
What’s the status of Rollins and Amaro’s affair when SVU returns? — Jennifer
It’s safe to say that Amaro’s new gig as a beat cop in another borough will really cramp their style. But Rollins won’t be lonely. Remember when we told youthat she’d return to her old stomping grounds in Atlanta? Well, one of her former male colleagues is very happy to see her, especially now that he’s left his wife. Don’t expect him to waste any time clarifying his feelings.
10/01/2014 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Wednesday) : BARBA (RAUL ESPARZA) TRIES A PRO BASKETBALL STAR ON SERIAL RAPE CHARGES
Basketball superstar Shakir “The Shark” Wilkins (guest star Henry Simmons) announces his partnership with the Orion Bay clothing line, owned by billionaire Orion Bauer (guest star Stacy Keach) and his daughter Cordelia (guest star Teri Polo). But the SVU intervenes when Orion press rep Carla Cannon (guest star Kelley Missal) tells reporters she was raped by Wilkins. When more women come forward, Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Detective Carisi (guest star Peter Scanavino) disagree on the authenticity of each woman’s story, and Barba (Raul Esparza) takes a shaky case to court. Meanwhile, the case takes Rollins (Kelli Giddish) to her former precinct in Atlanta, where ex-colleagues bring up old memories. Also starring Ice-T (Detective Odafin Tutuola). Also guest starring Elizabeth Marvel (Counselor Rita Calhoun), Lakisha May (Tiana), Patricia Noonan (Macie-Lynn), Myk Watford (Captain Sam Reynolds) and Sandy Duncan (Judge Virginia Farrell).
What can you say about SVU‘s new addition? I’m going to miss Amaro! — Lindsey
Never fear: Amaro will still play a big role in the first case of the season, despite — or perhaps because of — his new role as a beat cop. But back at the SVU squad room, Olivia will have a tough time dealing with the rough-around-the-edges Det. Sonny Carisi. If his questionable prior SVU experience doesn’t raise red flags, Carisi’s personal investigative style certainly will. Let’s just say the rest of the squad does not approve.
09/24/2014 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Wednesday) : IN THE 16TH SEASON PREMIERE, THE SVU TAKES ON A DANGEROUS PROSTITUTION RING TO FIND ELLIE PORTER’S KILLERS. STARRING MARISKA HARGITAY, ICE-T, DANNY PINO, KELLI GIDDISH AND RAUL ESPARZA.
In the season 16 premiere, Sergeant Benson (Hargitay) juggles work and her new role as foster mother to baby Noah Porter. Amaro (Pino), now working the traffic beat in Queens, arrests an underage prostitute with connections to Noah’s mother Ellie, who was “greenlit” by her pimp and brutally murdered. Amaro’s undercover work sets off a chain of events that puts everyone connected to the case – even baby Noah – in danger. Meanwhile, a new detective assigned to Manhattan SVU (guest star Peter Scanavino) starts off on the wrong foot. Also guest starring Lobo Sebastian (Joaquin Menendez), Manny Perez (Angel Perez), Alexa Mansour (Luna Garcia), Laura Gomez (Selena Cruz), Lenny Venito (John Gatto), Gavin-Keith Umeh (Little Tino) and Bronwyn Reed (Lucy).
As many of you might already know, Danny was nominated by Mariska to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Well, he finally did and you can watch it below!
Danny is featured in a new “The More You Know” campaign called “Knowledge Is Power.” You can check his PSA’s out below. If we come across more, we will post them as well.
Danny was photographed attending the 29th Annual Imagen Awards last night. I’m really not sure if he or SVU won the awards they were nominated for, as I cannot find any list of winners anywhere. If I do, however, I will update and let you all know. You can check the photos from the show out at the link below.
Edit: Meghan informed me that she did find a list and Danny did not win the award he was nominated for. Such a bummer, because he so deserved it!
