    Alex will stop at nothing to keep Dan all her own, including allowing herself to get Pregnant, harrassing him at work, phoning him at all hours, pretending to be an interested buyer in their Manhattan condo, kidnapping his child from school, and following his family to their new country home in Upstate New York.
