Survivor Season 41 Episode 10 Review: Baby With A Machine Gun

It looks like Benson was right. She was worried that Stabler would lose his identity if he were undercover for too long. After the case wrapped up on Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 Episode 8, he seemed overly nostalgic about his time with the Albanian mob. Weirdly, the mob bosses he arrested seemed …
