[Infanticide, Abortion] Three separate stories/characters become tied together one evening when Jack kills Cristina's husband and children in a hit-and-run accident. Paul is eager to begin normal life again, but he hesitantly agrees to his wife's idea of surgery and artificial insemination as a last-ditch effort to get pregnant. During consultations with a doctor before the surgery, Paul learns that his wife had undergone an abortion after they had separated in the past. Angered, Paul ends the relationship. Cristina learns that she's pregnant; the doctor urges Cristina to quit using drugs. After Paul's demise, Cristina is seen tentatively preparing for the new child in one of her daughter's bedrooms, which she had previously been unable to enter after her daughter's death.
