[[WMG: Goren/Eames occurred only because [[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit Benson/Stabler]] never would.]]
Over time, it became quite apparent that, in spite of the fans' wishes, [[ShipSinking a romantic relationship between Benson and Stabler would never happen]], so ThePowersThatBe decided to give fans of the Major Case Squad [[ConsolationPrize their own shipping between the lead detectives]], regardless of the lack of any hints of a non-platonic relationship in the seasons prior. In the end, the shipping between Goren and Eames went over well [[BrokenBase with about half the fanbase]] and remained a fixture for the rest of the series' duration and Benson ended up [[spoiler: dating fellow detective Cassidy and Ed Tucker, who works for Internal Affairs and was a ''rival'' of Stabler's, and her as well, albeit to a lesser degree. And that's not even mentioning those who ship her with Cabot or Amaro...]] Plus, you have [[SleepsWithEveryoneButYou Stabler]] who [[AssPull (apparently)]] slept with ex-partner, Jo Marlowe, years before.
