Briscoe and Logan investigate a possible abduction of a young girl, Samantha Silver, who disappears from a crowded department when she is out shopping with her nanny. Her father is Gary Silver, a well-known Broadway producer. The case takes a major twist however when they locate the child with her mother, who claims she had taken the child because her ex-husband has been sexually molesting her. Her claim is backed up by several child protection advocates and a pediatrician's report that seems to confirm the little girl was molested. ADA Stone knows however that these types of cases are difficult to prosecute as they inevitably have to rely on the child's testimony. Written by

During the hearing about the accusation video tape the judge references the Claus Von Bulow case. In that case, the judge allowed evidence that was obtained by a third party with a vested interest (namely a black bag with syringes and insulin that was found by a private detective hired by the son of Von Bulow's wife, his supposed victim, who wanted Von Bulow incarcerated). This decision was highly controversial and has lead many to question whether Von Bulow did in fact kill his wife. See more
