** The "family" in "Design". [[spoiler:April is a sociopathic BitchInSheepsClothing who frames a man for rape and murder, cons the prospective adoptive parents of her baby out of thousands of dollars, and abandons her newborn daughter without a second thought after she's born. Her separated parents are little better: her mother taught her how to con people out of their money and molded her SocialDarwinist views, while her father is a doctor who has his daughter drug wealthy men and steal their sperm for him in an attempt to create a superior gene pool. Despite being a WellIntentionedExtremist, he is still the least deranged of the three--when he tries to help his daughter, she asks him why. He says it's because he's her father and he loves her, and she coldly states, "Love is for suckers." At the end of the episode, the father is imprisoned, while April and her mother escape to Florida, having abandoned the newborn baby as soon as she was no longer useful. Thankfully, the baby's father steps in to raise her.]]

** "Design" has a woman who conceived her daughter by purchasing a famous musician's sperm in hopes of having a child who is a gifted pianist, then angrily asking her doctor, "Now what am I supposed to do with her?" when the daughter can't play Mozart, despite only being a toddler. Despite seeing very little of her, it is clear that she does not care about her daughter, only the fame and fortune she thinks will come from having her.

** The main cast for most of the show has familial problems of their own, too, to say the least. Olivia is a ChildByRape, had an alcoholic mother, and has a half-brother through her rapist father who always finds himself in some kind of trouble. Elliot's mother suffers from bipolar disorder, causing them to become estranged; his daughter, Kathleen, inherited this disorder, accounting for her misbehavior in early adulthood. Munch's uncle is mentally ill, and his father committed suicide. Finally, Tutuola's undercover work caused his wife to leave him and caused a schism in his relationship with his son (who is gay); his ex-wife was also raped by her father and had a child Darius, who went on to commit murder.

** In "Design", a pregnant woman is about to commit suicide and claims her baby is the product of a rape. [[spoiler:It is...only ''she'' was the rapist, having drugged a wealthy scientist to collect his sperm, impregnate herself, and frame him for the crime. She previously drugged 34 other famous or rich men and collected their sperm, trying to do the same thing to them, and proceeds to scam the potential adoptive parents of her baby out of $50,000 each. The whole thing was a massive con.]]
