When Nicole Manning is found attacked in a parking garage, Benson and Stabler begin to look for evidence that can point them in the direction of her attacker. While in route to the hospital, they find that Nicole was pregnant, and the search turns to include any signs of the baby. The Detectives find that Nicole is married, but was also having an affair. They begin to suspect her boyfriend. Richard Manning, the victim's husband, becomes their number one target. He claims he killed the baby to end his wife's relationship with her boyfriend. But DNA proves that the baby was his own.
This is a very intereting episode. Not to mention it is the episode in which Mariska Hargitay met her now husband Peter Hermann.
