Benson and Stabler investigate the murder of the pregnant daughter-in-law of a prominent religious figure. They initially focus on the victim's well-connected family and conclude that her infidelity, and the identity of the child's probable father, likely led to her murder.

Loosely based on the 1999 Hillsdale College scandal (in the episode, the college is Midville). Note that the leading credits are slightly different, admitting the "loosely based" premise of the story. The highly conservative president of Hillsdale College, George Roche III, was found to have had an affair with his daughter-in-law. In the episode, the daughter-in-law is killed whereas in real-life, her death was found to be a suicide. Both stories involve a president of a conservative college in a small town having an affair with a daughter-in-law. See more
