The “Law & Order: Organized Crime” actor seemed to know the image would get his fans attention and captioned the photo, “#rehearsing what @Mariska ?”

The 57-year-old “Law & Order: SVU” actress responded by retweeting the snap and adding to the flirtatious vibe.

“Are you blushing? it’s getting hot in here,” she wrote, while including the fire emoji and tagging Meloni.

“Law & Order” fans were completely overwhelmed by the duo’s steamy taunting.

“STOP OH MY GOD,” wrote one follower.

“​​PLEASE I AM DEFINITELY SENDING YOU MY FUNERAL BILL NOW,” added another exasperated fan.


“You two will be the end of us making everyone spiral,” noted another, before adding, “you two definitely know what you are doing though.”

While Meloni’s character of Elliot Stabler and Hargitay’s Olivia Benson have had a long history since first hitting screens on “SVU” in 1999, it has always been all about business and solving crimes.

When asked about whether or not the two characters could be romantic with each other, Meloni previously said it could happen, but it would “have to be earned.”
