Go To

Directed by Michael Katleman

Written by Michael Sardo & Russ Grant

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, the woman's ex-husband, is questioned, but he was stuck in traffic with his new girlfriend at the time of death. However, a camera at a gas station shows otherwise for the girlfriend's alibi. She was not in the vehicle. The father is complicit, but he reveals the baby was taken to a church. Meanwhile, Frankie and Maura decide they are too much like family to pursue a relationship; Jane deals with morning sickness while unsuccessfully trying to hide her pregnancy from her mother; and the team is called to a car accident that claimed the life of Detective Frost.



  • Like Brother and Sister: After Maura and Frankie kiss, they both agree they think of each other more like siblings than romantic partners.
  • Morning Sickness: Played with. The scent of the morgue makes Jane nauseous because of her pregnancy. A few other things, including the smell of fish and kale, also make her feel ill.

How well does it match the trope?
