Background information and notes Edit

  • At one time in this episode, Abbie says, "We're not talking about a couple of teenagers who killed their newborn because they were scared." Interestingly enough, Episode 159 ("Denial") dealt with that exact situation.
  • Benjamin Bratt's introductory image changes in the opening montage, as does S. Epatha Merkerson's. This is the third time for Bratt, a series record.
  • Angie Harmon's first contract appearance as A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael.
