Julian Faces Life As A Free Man! In the wake of his Ava-assisted acquittal, Julian is adjusting to life as a free man - which includes a return to bachelordom, as he drops off his signed divorce papers with Alexis. Despite beating a murder rap that was a seeming slam dunk for the prosecution, Julian is not in the best state of mind. Julian has to rebuild his reputation, his business and his relationships. Julian is also trying to make sense of Alexis's disastrous performance on the witness stand while testifying against him. Their encounter (during which Julian shares his theory that Alexis may have subconsciously tried to help him while on the witness stand) doesn't go well.
