‘Law & Order: SVU Parents Nightmare’ recap review.

“It’s the biggest episode of the year that we’ve done in a lot of ways,” Leight tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Michael Slovis is directing, who did the Game of Thrones season premiere.

NBC’s Wednesday’s finale of the hit TV series ‘Law & Order: SVU’ ended in a near-death experience which is leading to the exit of Danny Pino from show. “It seemed to be, in a strange way, right for Amaro to start fresh somewhere else,” showrunner Warren Leight told TV Guide. “It’s not to say any of us enjoys it, but it seems like that’s where the story was going and I think all of the actors felt like the exit was honored.” Obviously, let us start this “Law & Order: SVU” article off with a massive spoiler warning: Stop reading right away if you have not seen Wednesday night’s new episode yet. According to a new report from TV Line, it’s totally true that actor ,Danny Pino aka Nick Amaro (left), is leaving “Law And Order: SVU,” so he’ll be out of any season 17 plans. Although it was touch and go, Amaro made it out of surgery and recovered enough to even make it to Olivia’s party celebrating her official adoption of Noah, or should we say Noah Porter Benson.

And if she does, what will that mean for baby Noah’s future?” says Leight. “It’s the trial of Johnny D. and the tribulation of Olivia and Noah.” It doesn’t take long for Johnny D. to find out about his son. “When he finds out the truth about that baby, he has to use it,” says Leight. “He’s not really good father material but he develops an interest in that baby very early on in that episode.” Olivia’s struggles with Noah come just as she faces change in her precinct as well. In the most recent episode, Tucker (Robert John Burke) urged her to take the Lieutenant’s exam to prevent an outsider from coming in and usurping her power. After all, it was made clear when he tried to push for a promotion to sergeant that he was never going to be able to move up in the department after his shooting of an unarmed teenage boy last season, so why not move across the country to be closer to his daughter and son? “I know I wasn’t what your old partner was for you,” Amaro told Benson (Mariska Hargitay) in reference to the gone-but-not-forgotten Stabler (Christopher Meloni).

However, Benson replied “that old relationship didn’t allow for anything. … But you, with your support, I have a family.” It’s unclear if Amaro’s exit will make room for a new rookie detective to join the ranks next season like the way newbie Det. Amaro (Danny Pino) does seem interested, but will his record, which includes shooting an unarmed teenager boy and assaulting an acquitted sex offender, be a problem? “It will certainly be explored.

In addition to introducing are-they-or-aren’t-they Rollins and Amaro (Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino), Leight turned up the soap opera elements of what was always the L&O franchise’s most dramatic entry. Tucker also comes back with his thoughts on who the No. 2 should be,” says Leight. “He has his ear to the internal politics of 1 Police Plaza and he’s trying to give Benson the heads up on how things might go.” Combined with a courtroom shooting teased in the season finale promo, it makes for what Leight calls “an emotional rollercoaster ride” of a season finale. “It doesn’t end on a cliff, but I think people will be ready for a break by the time it ends,” says the executive producer. “There are a couple of big surprises in the finale that will have to resonate in the new year.” Well, now it’s the only one, and it’s still chugging. “SVU 2.0” has gelled in the past two seasons by focusing on the trials and tribulations of TV’s most beloved policelady (sorry, Laura of the Mysteries).

Sonny accessed Dana’s voice mail messages on her cell phone and one of them was a message from Owen stating that he couldn’t go home unless Dana came to get him.

Timor’s cool with testifying against D., and Selena’s still all hard-bitten and “no way.” She doesn’t have much of a choice, though.The trial begins, and Liv takes the stand.
