SVU halted production on Season 21 with only a few episodes left to shoot. The choice was made because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). According to Deadline, NBCUniversal stopped production on many television series. Along with SVU, other favorites have halted production as well including the Chicago series, New Amsterdam, and Superstore.

Episode 19 includes a promotion for Detective Amanda Rollins

The episode begins with Detective Rollins shooting off some rounds from a firearm with Captain Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay). They both have excellent grouping skills, and that’s to be expected.

Next, Benson says she has something to talk to Rollins about. She says 1PP wants to speak with Rollins, which sounds suspicious at first. Benson says she had a whole speech prepared, but Rollins is getting a much-deserved promotion. She’ll now be detective second grade. They embrace because it’s a great moment for them both. Benson is really happy for Rollins and it’s clear they’re very close friends.

Fans congratulate Detective Amanda Rollins on her promotion

Fans couldn’t be more thrilled for Rollins’ promotion. She’s been through a lot and this year has been more than eventful. The first thing that comes to mind is Rollins’ dysfunctional family. It’s been a hard year for her and she deserves this promotion.

Numerous fans of the series took to Twitter to congratulate Rollins on the promotion. Apparently, a lot of people didn’t catch the big moment at first for whatever reason and some fans wanted to know what they missed.

“Congrats to my favorite detective,” a Twitter user wrote.

Many others seem to agree that Rollins deserves this promotion for all her hard work and dedication over the years. “That made my day,” another fan said.

It’s definitely been a crazy year for Rollins, so she wasn’t expecting her Captain to give her good news. “Well done she deserves it after this year with being held by the ex-cop and dealing with her family,” a fan commented.

Another fan says Rollins clearly deserves this. “Congratulations Rollins!! You so deserve it! Great job,” a fan wrote.

Not everyone thinks Rollins deserves the promotion though

However, not everyone seems to agree that Rollins deserves this promotion for all her hard work. Some don’t think it’s very believable with everything that’s happened in the past.

“To all the people complaining about Rollins, can we all remember something: It’s a tv show so settle down,” a fan reminded everyone.

Some people don’t understand how Rollins could be promoted with everything that’s happened with her in the past. “With all her issues and past. Not reality at all,” a fan wrote.
