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:
