'Law & Order: SVU' Fans React to Wednesday Night's Heartbreaking Twist

Hannah Barnes


Wednesday's winter finale of Law & Order: SVU seemed to be a relatively routine episode about a catfishing case, but things took a turn for the worse at the show's end when Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) adopted son Noah was kidnapped while shopping at a mall with his biological grandmother Sheila Porter (Brooke Shields).

Fans instantly began reacting to the moment on Twitter, with many viewers immediately outraged at the plot twist.

Some noted that Benson just can't seem to catch a break.

Others offered their theories on who may have committed the crime.

While others gave some suggestions on who might be able to help bring Noah home.

Law & Order: SVU returns Jan. 3 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
