    I would love to see Chis Meloni return to Special Victims. I miss watching him I also am happy I can finally watch Danny Pino again. After Cold Case left the air I was very disappointed. He was my favorite character.

    I also would love to see Chris Meloni return to Law and Order. I miss him terribly. I do though love Danny Pino part. I missed him after Cold Case went off the air.
