Barba and Benson watch as Paula states AJ proposed and they are getting married later that day. At a later date in court, a doctor testifies for the prosecution about the science behind the force of the blow AJ gave to Paula and the punch could have killed her but she got lucky. Calhoun cross examines him and brings out that the doctor never examined Paula and his speculation is based on a grainy black and white video and an algorithm.
She also brings out the fact that Paula shows no sign of neurological injury at the time or later. Benson is testifying for the prosecution, stating it is not uncommon for victims of domestic violence to say it is their fault or to refuse to testify.
Some are emotionally or financially dependent on their abusers or scared of reprisals. They are most at risk when the victim goes against their abuser or tries to leave. Under cross examination, Calhoun gets Benson to admit that Paula did not show fear nor did she cite financial dependence as reasons not to testify. Benson says that is not what she saw in the video.

Calhoun mentions her client has expressed regret and will get anger management and spiritual counseling. Benson comments she has heard that before. Calhoun asks Benson if she believes in the rehabilitative powers of anger management, and Benson replies not always, no. Calhoun brings up the situation where a detective in her squad beat up a civilian who recently returned to active duty after a short stint in anger management.
Amaro, sitting in the gallery squirms in his seat. Benson said her detective lost his temper with a horrific child abuser, not his wife. Amaro looks unhappy and AJ looks pleased. Amaro says he hit her, end of story. Rollins argues they get to decide what is best for her, saying that is infantilizing and is SVU making her a victim all over again.
He tells her to take it easy and she asks if he is counting her drinks now, calling him Saint Nick, Savior of Damaged Women. He says he never laid a hand on Maria, and Rollins asks that he never wanted to. Rollins says Maria got to him, and she still gets to him. He says no, so she pushes his shoulder harder again and again to try to get a rise out of him.
He asks if she is jealous of Maria now, and she asks if that is where they are going now. Rollins thinks this is funny as patrons stare.

Scott testifies he has never witnessed anything other than a genuine love for each other. Barba asks what he thought about the video of AJ punching his wife, and Scott says he did not watch it. Barba withdraws the question. Afterwards, AJ testifies about how much he loves Paula and he will always regret that night but did not intend to hurt her.
He decided to testify as Paula had the strength to sit in the courtroom and if she can be brave enough to sit in here, he can be brave enough to sit here and take responsibility and teach his son to be a man.
Anyone who is interested will be able to pick up those breadcrumbs, but I think that is our writers' way of rewarding the fans who watch the show week in and week out and know what these characters have been going through, to give them some kind of a compass for what is happening behind the scenes.
There are potentially huge consequences for colleagues who sleep together. Will we see any of those consequences play out over the rest of the season? Will anyone in the squad find out?
Will Rollins & Carisi Finally Get Together in ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Season 20? – TV Insider
I'll put it this way: It's not a regular run-of-the-mill, 9-to-5 job. It is a squad room full of inquisitive, instinctual detectives who have a nose for things being off. So what is happening behind the scenes may begin to pique certain characters' interests. But at the same time, you're dealing with a former undercover cop and a cop who's been undercover before in Amaro and Rollins, so they're pretty good at hiding as well.
I think that is one of the things that I'm looking forward to in the coming episodes; to really find out whether it is ever revealed. I don't know whether it's ever revealed, but I do know that we have very smart detectives all around us. The smallest slip-up could blow the whole roof off of it. Warren Leight has said that the season finale is a big episode for your character.
What can you tease about what Amaro will be going through? In the finale, Amaro stands to lose not only his family, but his career. And it could happen that quickly and that easily, and it's only his current friends and perhaps some very close friends from the past who he has to rely on to get him out of the situation.
So will Laura Benanti return for that episode? Laura Benanti will be in the episode prior, in the penultimate episode. What can you say about Maria and Amaro's dynamic?
He's positive and he feels that he is going to be able to bring his family back under the same roof ultimately. He's resolved to make that happen.
He's one of those people, and I feel like maybe a lot of us are, that when things are crumbling around you, all you want to do is restore where you find the most peace at all costs. That relationship with Maria and Zara, his daughter — they represent peace to him.
Then again, he is not clear-eyed in his perception of what Maria's intentions are, which only leads to disappointment and for him to act out, which is what gets him in trouble in the finale. It's been a big year for your character not only because of the family issues that he's been dealing with, but also because of the shooting.
After the trial, Amaro and his father make a tentative reconciliation. He was married at the start of his tenure with SVU, and had a young daughter named Zara. In the Season 14 premiere, she reveals to Amaro that she is accepting a job in Washington, D.
Amaro questions if Maria was diagnosed with PTSDand expresses his regret that he did not try harder to understand what she was going through. He ultimately refuses to do so, however. Like Fin, he had previously worked undercover while in narcotics.Law & Order SVU 17x01, 17x02 -- "I'm pregnant"
Despite their rocky start, however, Amaro and Benson grow to have a mutual respect for each other and work well together. She tells him the better solution would be to ensure that the perpetrators never see the light of day again. In the episode "Hunting Ground", Amaro fatally shoots a serial killer who has kidnapped Benson and another woman. It is the first time he has ever killed anyone, and he's badly shaken by the experience.
She subsequently finds out, and they get into a heated argument in the SVU squad room in front of his colleagues that Munch later proclaims was the moment he knew that their marriage was over.
