Valentine’s Day is for love, and apparently, reuniting iconic TV partners.
On Wednesday, Mariska Hargitay posted a picture with her former Law & Order: SVU costar Christopher Meloni. Along with the image of Meloni kissing Hargitay on the cheek, the actress wrote, “And then that happened… Just when I though Valentine’s Day was over.”
For the first 12 seasons of the NBC police procedural, Hargitay and Meloni played partners Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler. Currently in season 18, Hargitay remains on the series, while Meloni has moved on to roles on WGN’s Underground and Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer revival.

Last May, EW talked to Meloni about the chances of him returning to SVU before the series eventually wraps.
“I always presented that I’d be open to doing the last few episodes, so that’s really all I have to say about that,” he noted. “It’s not up to me, I’ll just say that. I’ve said my peace on it.”
