SVU Says Goodbye to Capt. Cragen: Will Olivia Be Put in Charge?

Longtime Law & Order: SVU castmember Dann Florek had one stipulation when discussing his exit from the series with showrunner Warren Leight.

"Dann said, 'I don't like parties. I don't want a party,'" Leight tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "But he does have a nice 'farewell to the troops' moment in this episode."
