Question: Woo! Mariska won! Now some SVU scoop, please?
Answer: On her way into the Shrine, the Emmy winner (oh, how I have longed to type those words) dropped some clues about the "extraordinary thing" that Benson will be facing this season. "It's the biggest thing she's ever dealt with in her life. It unnerves her. It shakes the ground she walks on. It destroys her and ignites her [at the same time]. She gets the rug pulled out from under her in a very serious way." How will this impact her already strained relationship with Chris Meloni's Stabler? "She can't deal with this alone," she says, before adding with a devilish grin, "he helps her." Sounds diiiiirty.
