  • Episode Description
  • Claire Linkwood is the perfect candidate for the surrogate birth mother program at the Deanston Clinic. She's young, healthy, driven by the need for money, and without family attachments. In Dr. Deanston's treatment room, Claire is successfully implanted with an embryo, instructed to join the clinic's surrogacy support group, eat well and ingest specially formulated vitamin pills daily. Then the bad dreams start. Vivid nightmares of her and the fetus in terrible distress. This is not an uncommon thing according to the doctor and the other women in her support group who have all experienced the same thing. But these assurances are undermined by her boyfriend, Ben, and Special Agent Grant of the FBI who has had her and other Deanston surrogacy birth mothers under surveillance. He warns her that all the babies born through his program have disappeared... as if they never existed. Claire refuses to believe his conspiracy theory until Ben convinces her to see another doctor, and that examination yields very alarming questions with no plausible answers.moreless
