Raúl Esparza is hoping to bring Rafael Barba into a new direction on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
The actor previewed his return to the series in the Season 23 finale and how he hopes it will lead to a reconciliation between Benson and Barba.
But before that happens, Barba must once more clash with Carisi in court in a dramatic turn to add tension to things.
Barba’s big return to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
For several years, Rafael Barba was SVU’s go-to prosecutor, handling the often complex cases the unit ran into.
Known for his dry sense of humor and willingness to bend the law if he had to, Barba did a great job but finally left in Season 19 after a case involving the death of an infant.
Barba returned in Season 22 to defend a man for killing his daughter’s abuser, which had him clashing with Carisi (Peter Scanavino) in court.
