Elisabeth Röhm) responded to her firing in the most ridiculous way possible. Sure, her firing was also ridiculous - she's fired for being too passionate during cases, which could apply to every main character in the Law & Order franchise in every case (seriously, it would be weird if the cops in SVU weren't passionate about stopping sexually related crimes). Still, her firing doesn't hold a candle to her response, which is:
"Is This Because I'm a Lesbian?"
Please note that this is a character trait that had never been addressed before, and, given her firing and quick exit from the show, never brought up again. It was an absolutely crazy, from left field response to being fired. She doesn't even seem that mad about it. She's just checking. Check out the video (around the 1:58 mark) for one of the most amazing and confusing TV moments of all time:
Oh, Dick Wolf, you are glorious. Law & Order may be gone from the airwaves, but at least we'll always have this moment, which, in the parting words of Southerlyn, is 'Good...Good.'
