“I felt like where it was heading, and where it headed last night, just seemed the right place to leave it right now,” Giddish told Variety after her exit. “I am so excited about things going on in my personal life and kind of the mirroring of what’s going on in my personal life and in Rollins’, there’s a lot of joy to be experienced.”
She also hinted at the possibility of Rollins returning to SVU in the future, teasing, “Dick Wolf has got such a fertile universe that’s going on, that people can pop up in different places. That’s a really cool thing that he’s created.”
