Question: Hope your time off went well. Can you give us some Law & Order: SVU scoop please?

Answer: Neal Baer says an upcoming episode "will revisit Benson's past again. She will reveal to a victim something that she's never [told anyone] before. It [concerns] her mother." Also in early '06, Tamara Tunie's medical examiner will get out of the morgue long enough to play detective alongside Chris Meloni's Stabler, and Lost's Malcolm David Kelley will guest-star in an episode that also marks the return of Annie Potts. Lastly, Baer says Benson and Stabler "will have a story where they take stock of their seven years together." These two need to stop taking stock and start getting a room.
