Law & Order: Christopher Meloni Goes Searching for Mariska Hargitay

Earlier this week, we learned that Christopher Meloni's Elliot Stabler isn't quite finished with Dylan McDermott's Richard Wheatley when the second season of Law & Order: Organized Crime rolls around, with the first season's big bad returning for a major recurring arc. But from the looks of things on Instagram over the past twenty-four hours, it appears Stabler will still have Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and the SVU team covering his back when the series does return, with both NBC series currently in production. That is if Meloni can figure out where Hargitay is at…
