Jane and Maura's mud bath at the spa is interrupted when a man brings in a pregnant woman who has been stabbed. She dies but Maura manages to save baby. The woman's husband, a commercial fisherman, was on his boat when she was killed but says he wasn't aware that his wife was pregnant. The case gets more that just a bit complicated when it turns out she was a surrogate, carrying a child for a couple who were unable to have a child on their own. It leads them to a fertility clinic run by a Dr. Hanson who is less than cooperative. Jane's mother meanwhile is driving her crazy trying to redecorate Jane's apartment and then holding a yard sale there. Maura has an idea. Written by

Isles states that the baby has type O blood and the mother had type A blood, meaning that the baby was not her biological child. We get our genetics from both our parents. The mother could have been type AO, and father could have been types AO, BO, or OO. The baby's possible blood types could have been AA, AB, AO, BO or OO. If the father had AO or BO type blood, the baby actually had a one in four chance of being type OO, and if the father had OO blood, the baby's chances of having OO blood would rise to one in two if the mother was AO. Which means the baby could in fact have been the biological son of the mother. See more
