As Amanda Rollins (played by Kelli Giddish) struggled with the circumstances of her second pregnancy in season 20, former partner Dominick Carisi (Peter Scanavino) was always by her side for support. However, a deleted scene has revealed Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) was a major support to the detective-turned-lawyer as he struggled to come to terms with Rollins’ second pregnancy.

In the season 20 episode, A Story of More Woe, Rollins goes into labour with her second child and she struggles with telling her child’s father, Doctor Al Pollack (George Newbern), that she doesn’t love him anymore.

Rollins has long struggled throughout the series with being a single mother, especially as her first daughter’s father is out of the picture.

However, Carisi began to help out and formed a close bond with Jesse and viewers had been hoping Rollins and Carisi growing closer would mean they will eventually get together.

In a deleted scene from A Story of More Woe, Carisi returns from the hospital before Rollins has given birth and confides to Benson he only wants her to be happy, heavily implying he is struggling to see her with someone else.

“Hey Liv, just FYI, Rollins is dilated but she’s not dilated enough,” Carisi blurts out to Benson as he enters her office.

Carisi had returned to the squad room from the hospital, and the team were awaiting news about Rollins and the baby.

A concerned Benson asks: “The baby is okay?”

Thankfully, Carisi quickly confirms the baby is fine, but Rollins is worried about the birth.

“Rollins though, she not so much, you know how she hates being on other people’s timetables,” Carisi explains.

Benson appeared shocked he had left the hospital but he went on to reveal: “Well, Doctor Al was there so it’s a good thing I guess.”

Benson clearly sensed Carisi was slightly upset by the situation and pressed the ADA for more details about how he was handling things.

Carisi was obviously heartbroken at the situation, telling Benson: “I just want her to be happy.”

The series has toyed with audiences frequently in the past about whether or not Rollins and Carisi have feelings for one another, and fans have noted the cast’s incredible chemistry on-screen.

This important deleted scene clearly reveals Carisi’s love for her, as well as his difficulty with Rollins’ romance with Doctor Al.

However, Rollins would later break up with Doctor Al after he proposed to her in the aired episode, telling him: “I don’t love you.”

If Rollins was aware of Carisi’s feelings sooner, would she have broken up with Doctor Al much earlier?

“Carisi, I know better than anyone how easy it is to get close to someone that you’re working with,” Benson tells her downcast colleague.

However, the popular ADA is fast to respond, telling his boss: “I’m good though, it’s all good.”

The lawyer tries to mask his feelings but Benson can see he is suffering at the moment despite claims he is fine.

Though the scene between Carisi and Benson never aired, the scene is undoubtedly an extremely important one for fans who have been waiting for the pair to become an item for years.

The former partners eventually shared a kiss in the recent season 22 episode Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing, so viewers might get their wish and see them together very soon.

Law and Order: Special Victims Unit is available to watch on NBC in the US. A UK release date has yet to be announced.
