Strong performances by guest stars JoBeth Williams and Bruce Davison---and a cameo by Philip Bosco---highlight an unsettling episode.

Stabler and Benson are called to a hospital after it's discovered that a comatose woman is pregnant. Initially the patient's fiancé, as well as a necrophiliac, come under suspicion. But the investigation leads to a disturbing revelation about an unorthodox form of medical research about which Cabot says, “There's just no precedent for this kind of case yet.” Williams plays the patient's mother; Davison takes the role of a doctor; and Bosco portrays a billionaire diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Cabot: Stephanie March.
