'Law & Order: SVU' scoop: Benson and Stabler married with children?!

Talk about a sweeps stunt: Law & Order: SVU’s May 5 episode will find Benson and Stabler playing house!

“They’re going undercover as a married couple adopting a baby,” reveals executive producer Neal Baer, who says the episode will allow longtime fans to “experience the fantasy” of a Benson/Stabler coupling (without any of the morning after awkwardness).

How far will the partners take the charade? “You’ll have to wait and see,” hedges Baer, who declines to say whether the two will share a kiss. “But there’s certainly emotion shown between them because they’re [supposed] to be married.”
