Briscoe and Logan's investigation of a shooting seems to be an open and shut case. A distraught woman walks into a bank where her husband is a vice president and pulls a gun threatening to shoot him. A security guard shoots her first....end of case. Lt Van Buren however wants them to find out what the woman meant when she screamed that her husband killed her baby. She supposedly had a miscarriage but the fertility doctor she was seeing, Jordan Delbert, raises concerns when he clearly lies to the police. A review of his files reveals something else however: to cut expenses, Delbert began to use his own sperm to inseminate his patients. The challenge for ADA McCoy will be to get one of the victims to testify against him.

hGC stands for Human chorionic gonadotropin which is a hormone produced by the placenta after a fertilized egg implants on the endometrium (the inner layer of the uterine wall). This is the hormone that most home pregnancy tests detect. Its purpose is to signal the ovaries to produce higher levels than normal of the hormone progesterone during the first trimester, which in turn causes a thick lining of blood vessels to develop in the uterus to supply the placenta with the extra blood and nutrients it needs to develop fully in order to accommodate the ever increasing needs of the developing embryo.

The plotline of this episode involves a fertility doctor named Gilbert, but for some reason, the name was changed from Gilbert to "Delbert" at some point. In syndication, the doctor's name is clearly dubbed, and the location card for the doctor's office changed to Delbert. However, in some versions, the original audio is used but the location card reads Delbert. See more
