Folks, it’s finally happened. After 12 seasons of being on Law and Order: SVU, Kelli Giddish has officially left the building. While the lead-up to her exit was unexpected, her character Detective Amanda Rollins got the happy ending she deserved. But it was no consolation to fans.
During the December 8 episode of the NBC drama, viewers saw many changes occur for Rollins. She decided to step down as a detective for a slower-paced life as a college professor teaching forensic psychology. She had a heart-to-heart with her captain and close friend, Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay). But in the most shocking move of all, she and ADA Sonny Carisi (Peter Scanavino) decided to run to the courthouse for an intimate wedding with her SVU team as witnesses.
