When Law & Order: SVU, Chicago PD and Chicago Fire crossover next week these are two possible trending topics to look out for: #BadassBenson and… #SaveLindsay?!
In E!'s exclusive sneak peek at the big crossover, Sergeant Benson (Mariska Hargitay) demonstrates why she's not to be messed with and takes down a fleeing suspect. The scene features Chicago PD's Detectives Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) and Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) also in foot pursuit, but things quickly take a more serious turn when Lindsay goes down.
New York City bikers! We shake our fist at you.
PD's Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) also appears in the appropriately titled SVU "Chicago Crossover." The teams join forces to take down a child pornography site. Look for the two sergeants to butt heads in the episode also guest starring Lou Taylor Pucci. Everything starts on Tuesday's Chicago Fire and the action spills over to Wednesday's SVU at 9 p.m. and continues at 10 p.m. in Chicago PD when some of the SVU crew heads to the Windy City to finish out the case.
SVU and Chicago PD crossed over last season, but this is the first three-way crossover. Meanwhile, the long-running police drama has been up in ratings with episodes dealing with several different "ripped from the headlines" stories. Episodes this year have dealt with Hollywood starlets like Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes with a mix of Bryan Singer's sex abuse scandal mixed in, Donald Sterling and the Internet myth Slender Man.
Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays, 9 p.m. on NBC.
(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
