She wore a midnight blue trench coat, a black top and flared trousers over her shiny boots.
Mariska’s brunette locks were styled in their usual loose waves with glamor makeup covering her complexion.
True to her character, Mariska controlled the scene as she exited the building with authority.
She was accompanied by a young co-star, whom she was followed as he ran down the sidewalk.

Mariska had a worried expression on her face as she squatted slightly to his height and placed a hand on his arm.
Not pictured on set was Mariska’s longtime and handsome co-star, Christopher Meloni, who recently returned to the show as NYPD detective Elliot Stabler.
Talking about reuniting with Meloni with People during a joint interview with her co-star, Mariska told People: “Never been better. “I mean, if you’d told me I’d have the career I have right now in . . . the twilight of my life.”

“It’s just a dream come true,” Meloni said.
The actor added that they were “very lucky” to have such lasting on-screen chemistry.
“It’s effortless, and it’s weird, and I always consider it some kind of gift,” Mariska said. “It has so much to do with our shared sense of humor, shared perspective, our current history.”
In addition to SVU, Meloni can also be seen in Law & Order and in the new spin-off Law & Order: Organized Crime.
Season 24 of Law & Order SVU currently airs Thursdays on NBC.
