Can somebody give Mariska Hargitay an Emmy already? Sergeant Benson (Mariska) wraps up an extremely emotional finale of Law & Order: SVU on May 21, coming face-to-face with motherhood. Plus, Detective Amaro (Danny Pino) is in big trouble and may end up behind bars.

‘Law & Order: SVU’ Finale: Detective Munch Returns

What better way to wrap up a season than by bringing back a fan favorite? Detective Munch (Richard Belzer) is returning for the final episode of Season 15, and it looks like a tear-jerker.

Detective Amaro’s future is in jeopardy, after he lost his temper with a suspected pedophile and beat him up, in a previous episode. The man was not convicted, but Amaro had the victim in mind and freaked out, resulting in his arrest. 

This week, Amaro is orange jumpsuit-clad and facing charges of attempted murder. Bring in Munch!

“We’re police. We fight for the victims,” says Munch in the finale trailer, who appears to have returned to help out Amaro. But will it be too late?

In happier news, Benson has the chance to start a new chapter of her life: motherhood. Being involved in the Baby John Doe case for months now, Olivia will finally get to face her dream of becoming a mother. The baby has been bumped from foster home to foster home, and Benson could be the perfect mom for the sweet child who she’s taken a great interest in. She asks Munch if he’s ever thought about having kids. It seems like Munch may just be the voice of reason!

HollywoodLifers, WATCH the finale trailer above, and let us know if you think Benson should get the baby! Will she be a good mother? Could the child help her? Plus, is this the end for Amaro?
