Fans of Law and Order SVU may have to say goodbye to a beloved character soon. During the show’s midseason premiere, Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) is thinking about turning in her badge for good and go for retirement.
This came after her boyfriend, Tucker (Robert John Burke), told her that he may have reached his saturation point with their job. He has been with the force for a long time, and he might have reached the point of “enough is enough.” The job, Turner said in the preview, would swallow them whole if they stay long enough.
Law and Order SVU: Turner wants Olivia to retire, too
But it’s not just Turner who wants to retire in Law and Order SVU‘s midseason premiere. He wants Olivia to retire along with him. Are there any plan to settle down for the couple in the future?
That remains to be seen. What is clear is that Tucker wants out and he wants Olivia to be with him when he does. What that means for the show in general, we’d have to wait and see.
For now, Olivia is in tenterhooks whether to follow her man’s plans or just continue being with the squad.

Law and Order SVU returns with a bang
Last night’s episode titled Next Chapter flirted with the thought of retirement for Tucker and Olivia. But amid their issue, they worked to solve a case involving Quinn (Annie Monroe), a young professional in a consulting firm, who was sexually assaulted by a masked man. She believes it was her college stalker, Ray Wilson (Ben Cole), but he has an airtight alibi.
It turned out, it was retired cop Sgt. Tom Cole (Chris Bauer), who was slighted because he thinks Quinn was ungrateful for all he has done with her. Apparently, he was the one who helped her when Ray was stalking her back in college. Quinn and Carisi (Peter Scanavino) saved the day, and all is fine in Law and Order SVU.
