However, what he has to say isn’t the happiest news.
During an interview TV Line to promote Law & Order: Organized Crime and the crossover event with SVU, Christopher revealed that Stabler and his former partner will have a difficult time reconnecting.
“Well, this is what I think about that: No one’s going to be satisfied,” he shared. “I mean, it’s such a long time. It is so many unanswered questions.”
Christopher went on, adding that there’s “such a great sense of abandonment and betrayal and a what-the-f**ed-ness of it all, that, you know, that wound is, you know, not going to…get its dressings all, you know, squared away. You know, it’s going to be a process, right?”
You can see the first teaser that NBC dropped which reveals the shock for Olivia of his return.
Elsewhere in the interview, Christopher reveals that his return comes with a bit of weight for fans and he knows it.
“It’s such a unique experience I’m living, which is a sense of welcoming and love and just, ‘Welcome back’ and ‘We’ve missed you.’ It feels very sweet. And I’m just going, man, not too many people get this,” he shared. “It’s not lost on me.”
