“Fault” is the episode of SVU that you watch when you want to feel SO STRONGLY that Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson are in love with each other that every other story arc in the entire series just seems pointless. Up until that point, it’s just casual shipping an obvious sexual tension. But “Fault” elevates it to another plane entirely. When you realize that they wouldn’t just die for each other but that they would let OTHER PEOPLE DIE to protect each other, there’s no going back. When you realize that they love each other so much that it almost because impossible for them to do their jobs, THERE IS NO GOING BACK.
