This Thursday brings Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson) and Christopher Meloni (Elliot Stabler) back together for a three-hour Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime event block that finds, among a ton of things, Stabler's mother (Ellen Burstyn) making a surprise return, Ron Cephas Jones' Congressman Kilbride making Bell (Danielle Moné Truitt) an interesting offer, and… there's the matter of that letter between Stabler & Benson. So with that in mind, here's a look at a preview for this week's Law & Order: Organized Crime, "New World Order" / "The Outlaw Eddie Wagner":
