Why didn’t they think of this sooner?!

Law & Order: Criminal Intent” star Kathryn Erbe is going to appear on “Law & Order: SVU” this fall.

Erbe played Det. Alexandra Eames for 10 seasons on the now defunct “Criminal Intent” and she’ll be reprising her role for an “L&O” crossover stunt in an upcoming episode.

According to producers, Eames will be working for a City/Federal Homeland Security Task Force, which will link her to the “SVU” crew when they discover the sex trafficking ring they’re investigating has ties to terrorists.

Erbe is currently signed for just a one-off episode, which does not have an airdate yet, but there’s potential for return engagements.

“SVU’s” 14th-season premiere airs as back-to-back episodes on Sept. 26 at 9/8c on NBC.
