Did you really think there wasn't going to be a reaction video from Christopher Meloni (Elliot Stabler)? Earlier this week, his Law & Order: SVU and Organized Crime co-star Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson) released a video of herself back on set but with one major difference. No more boot and no more mini-transport to help get around. Not only did we get to see her "happy feet" again but we also got a look at Hargitay's personalized "happy dance" to celebrate. You can count Meloni in as one of those who was happy to see her back on her feet, but there is one thing he will miss about all of it.
In the following response video, Meloni gets a little nostalgic about seeing Hargitay in a boot (because that would be kinda cruel) but for that sweet tricycle-like ride that Hargitay was cruising around with (and now you know what to get Meloni for the holidays):
Here's a look back at Hargitay boot-free and showing off her "happy feet" dance for Meloni and everyone to see:
