In the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode ‘Return of the Prodigal Son,’ the squad rallies around Det. Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) to find the suspect behind a threat to his family, including his wife Kathy Stabler.
The last time Elliot and Kathy appeared on the series was on the 2011 episode ‘Delinquent’, when Elliot was falsely accused of sexual assault by a teenage boy (Sterling Beaumon). Rita Wilson played the boy’s mother.
