'SVU' Sneak Peek: Benson's Final Hour?

After eight consecutive Emmy nominations for Best Actress in a Drama, Mariska Hargitay was shut out of the competition last year -- but if the first look at the Law & Order: SVU season premiere is any indication, she's about to reclaim her front-runner title!
The first part of the back-to-back two-hour premiere, titled Surrender Benson, picks up right where last year's shocking cliffhanger left off: with Detective Benson imprisoned by the malevolent William Lewis (played with ferocious intensity by Pablo Schrieber) in her apartment, seemingly with no hope of escape.
And as you can tell from this just-released promo, things aren't looking good for the beloved TV detective ... although Hargitay did recently re-sign as a full-time cast member for season 15, so while she will likely escape his clutches, the question will become: At What Price?
Law & Order: SVU premieres September 25 at 10 p.m. on NBC.
