The NBC crime series had a dramatic shift in season 13 of SVU when Nick Amaro (played by Danny Pino) joined the squad following Stabler’s (Christopher Meloni) sudden and emotional departure. As Benson (Mariska Hargitay) struggled to contend with life without Stabler by her side, viewers quickly warmed to her new partner. Now, fans have since criticised Amaro’s actions during Benson’s horrific kidnapping by William Lewis (Pablo Schreiber) in season 15.

Fans have criticised Amaro for not noticing Benson had been kidnapped days after she was taken by serial rapist William Lewis (NAME) in the season 14 finale, Her Negotiation.

The beloved detective was tortured by Lewis and the character spent years recovering from the trauma.

Many viewers have claimed Stabler would have found his partner much quicker and theorised what would have happened if he’d not left the team.

Taking to Reddit to comment on the storyline, one fan wrote: “I like Amaro, in general I think he was really good to Liv.

“But I will never get over the fact that no one realized she was kidnapped for 2 DAYS!!

“If Elliot was her partner no way would that have happened,” they concluded.

Another commented: “This! It would have taken El 10 minutes at most to realize she was missing. But that’s because they were always communicating.

“Also, Elliot would have found her way faster. I dunno how he didn’t hear about everything that happened with Lewis in the 10 years he was gone but I really hope they address it.”

As the debate between fans continued, one viewer disagreed that Amaro failed by not noticing his boss was missing.

They remarked: “I mean if I remember well she took those days off so why would they be all in her business on her free days.

“And Elliot would’ve done the same…I think it’s just too much to assume that wouldn’t have happened as if he had any other way to know that she was kidnapped…it would’ve happened regardless,” they theorised.

Should Benson’s team have checked on her despite it being her time off work?

Some fans agreed it is unfair to criticise Amaro for letting her enjoy her weekend in peace.

Upon finding Lewis, Amaro and the squad arrested him but he later escaped custody, which, sadly, led to more torment for the captain.

“Elliot would have not let Lewis live and based on his character he would have easily been at her door while he had her tied up,” one fan stated.

“Olivia also almost killed Lewis when she beat him up. Elliot would have finished the job later on,” they concluded.

Stabler and Benson didn’t speak for a decade after his exit but now the two have reunited in spin-off Law and Order: Organized crime, will Benson open up to him about her past trauma?

Despite their sometimes contentious relationship, in season 16, after Amaro left the squad to move to California, she credited him with helping her grow as a person – something she was unable to do during her time with Stabler.

She said: “I grew more in my last four years with you than I did in the 12 years I was with him.

“You know that relationship, whatever it was, it didn’t allow for anything else.”

Law and Order: SVU and Law and Order: Organized Crime are both available to watch on NBC in the US. Season 22 of SVU is currently airing in the UK on Sky Witness, and is available to watch on Now TV as well.
