    • Elements of this episode appear to be ripped from the headlines of the Sunny von Bülow case. Sunny, an heiress and socialite, fell into a coma in December of 1980 due to an incident of what lab results indicated was hypoglycemia. Sunny's husband, Claus, was suspected and convicted of having administered a massive dose of insulin, though he was later freed on appeal where the cause of the coma was challenged by no fewer than eight medical experts.
