    I strongly object to the coming story line about Jane's out of wedlock baby. In the US today, almost half of all babies are born out of wedlock, over 70% for blacks. There was a lot of celebration over her brother's out of wedlock baby and now this. Bad enough that she turned down a marriage proposal from a perfectly decent man because she didn't want to lose her precious independence - straight out of the feminist playbook. Enough already!moreless

    An interesting case here. Nothing that exciting, but certainly not the worst plot the show has ever given us.



    Frost deserved a better ending, but I can't complain about the shock value at the end of the episode (even if we knew it was coming).

    A woman is stabbed to death while jogging in a park. The investigation is stepped up when an empty baby stroller, believed to have contained her baby, is found nearby. The baby's father Ray, the woman's ex-husband, is questioned, but he was stuck in traffic with his new girlfriend at the time of death. However, when they pick up this child molester and identifies Ray's girlfriend Caitlin saying she was Brian's mother, it was just too easy. More evidence comes to light when a camera at a gas station which shows Ray minus Caitlin, so her alibi is blown. The father is complicit, but he reveals the baby was taken to a church, Rizzoli and Korsak find baby Brian. Meanwhile, Tommy and Maura decide they are too much like family to pursue a relationship and Jane deals with morning sickness while unsuccessfully trying to hide her pregnancy from her mother. Angela kind of new something was going on and when questioning Maura about Jane, she finds out. At the end, the team is called to a car accident that claimed the life of Detective Frost.
