Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Stabler (Christopher Meloni) continue to take the lead in catchin some of New York's most depraved criminals. When It Returns: No need to fix what isn't broken: More of the same is headed your way. Christopher Meloni and Richard Belzer of 'Law & Order: SVU.' Photo courtesy of NBC.
