Rollisi is alive and well. Law & Order: SVU fans can breathe a sigh knowing this.
For those not in the know, Rollisi is the pairing of Rollins (Kelli Giddish) and Carisi (Peter Scanavino), SVU detectives whose friendship has blossomed over the recent seasons. It hasn't quite gotten past a friendship—as far as viewers know—but it's delightful to watch. In the below sneak peek, Rollins gets an assignment from Lt. Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and asks Carisi to hit the road with her. The result? Cute banter. Carisi can't go, he's got an interview with…the district attorney's office in Brooklyn. What?!
"Brooklyn?! You're going to have to grow a beard, start making artisanal pickles," Rollins says.
"I'm just seeing what's out there. And for the record, I like artisanal pickles," Carisi admits.
Same, Carisi, same.
Last season viewers found out Carisi past the bar exam and could in fact switch sides and practice law, but Scanavino told us he was staying put.
"Carisi is going to stay a police officer because he says, ‘I took an oath to serve and protect.' I think he really believes that. It would seem unfinished for him to leave, that he hasn't done everything he wanted to do in this part of his life yet, so I think he's going to continue that," he told us. "Especially with the passing of Dodds. They're a family. I think he really does see the squad as a family and if anything means anything to Carisi it's family. His personal family and his work family and he's not going to abandon them."
But as he said, he's "just seeing what's out there."
In "Imposter," Wallace Langham plays a man who uses a fake identity to lure a woman into his bed and Barba (Raúl Esparza) must argue that the evidence amounts to rape, but a powerful defense attorney (Callie Thorne) is his opposing counsel.
