Sunday, January 10 at 8 p.m.
As Ming (Mayko Nguyen) gets ready to proceed with her plans for artificial insemination, her husband, Chen (Byron Mann), is stressed and fantasizing about street races and infidelity. The sperm donor, Fitz (Shawn Ashmore), their medical school classmate and Ming’s former boyfriend, is considering reinstatement at the hospital which stirs up a lot of unresolved issues.
