I’ve always been a stabler fan even though I can recognize many of his glaring faults. But I think his coming back would just be a disaster anyway. Plus he can be scary and intense. As I’ve grown up some of that became less sexy and more “wtf dude?”
Yeah, see…I don’t hate Stabler. There are times and episodes where I like him a lot (and/or at least get where he’s coming from and understand his motivations as written.) But I think they wrote themselves into a real corner with the character becoming more and more rage-y, and the Benson/Stabler thing was just so played out. (Especially by the time they got him back with Kathy and she had the baby.)
It’s some of the hardcore Elliot stans I have issues with because I mean, I totally get not being into a show at all or that much once a favorite character is no longer there (hello, me with Munch.) But the way some of them just won’t give up on that dead horse after 5-6 years really has become a tedious bore, IMHO.
(I also just never found Elliot sexy personally, just so completely the opposite of my type I’ve always sort of scratched my head over the big appeal there. But hey, I know my tastes are weird and off-center, lol. Kinktomato and all of that!)
