In last night's SVU Season Finale, ADA Stone left the show in what was essentially a rehash of Barba's exit, filmed in the exact same spot and featuring similar dialogue, except somehow it was even more non-sensical (although, to be fair, there was less baby-murdering involved).
To be more specific, Barba at least compromised his job due to his own personal morals, but said he did it because Olivia Benson, his close friend of many years, "opened his heart". Stone, who has known Benson for about 15 minutes, compromised his job directly because of Benson, and told her she "became more important to him" than the cases (lol) because she has an "open heart". And I guess that's bad? Or something? So they both left because of her, except Barba left because she changed him and Stone left because he didn't want Benson to change him? And also they both probably had a thing for her? Was that on purpose or just lazy writing?
No one knows, and no one cares, because the showrunner who wrote both of those half-assed exits (and the extremely half-assed Seasons 19 and 20 of this show) is also gone. Good riddance. Next season sees the return of Warren Leight, who gave us Seasons 13 through 17 and created Barba, Amaro and Carisi (and Rollins back when she was not horrible). So let's all get excited for the record-breaking Season 21! Speaking of:
ONTD, what are your hopes for Season 21? Dream casting for the new ADA? Or a new detective? Are you hoping for the return of any familiar faces? Any storyline ideas for our fave SVU characters? And Rollins? And, for the first time in a while, are you looking forward to more SVU?
ONTD, I only watched that one scene, so tell me about the episode! Was it good? I hear my bb Carisi also participated in a frame job? Cool beans! It's a good thing the last 3 seasons never happened! Also, now that the season FINALLY ended, I want to thank you all for sticking with the show, and visiting these posts, which were the only good part of this season for me. I wish us all a better Season 21, with more enjoyable episodes and (even) more fun ONTD posts ❤️❤️❤️
