Roxy: Hey, listen to me, kiddo, because this doesn't make any sense.  Don't you have enough to worry about without doing Bo's job for him?

Rex: I'm not doing his job.  This isn't a police matter.

Roxy: Yeah, but you're looking for a 26-year-old -- and, you know, you're 26.

Rex: Ma, Bo asked me to help find this guy that somebody put up for adoption. After everything he's done for me, I'd live in a tree if he asked me to.

Roxy: Great.  I just don't know what's in it for you.

Adriana: No, mom, we need someone there right now!  Oh, I'm sorry.

Rex: Hey, no problem.

Adriana: Oh, hi.

Roxy: Yo, Adrian.  You know, you need another makeover.  I mean, you know, not that you really, really need one, but, you know, 'tis the season for a little va-va-voom.

Rex: Ma, ma, could you just give me a minute?

Roxy: For her?  Absotively.

Adriana: Roxy gave me a makeover when I first got to town -- hair out to here.

Rex: Well, that would be Roxy, all right.

Adriana: Yeah, Carlotta freaked.  I was living with her then.

Rex: Looks like you have a lot on your mind.

Adriana: You won't believe this.  One of the biggest trials in the history of this town and my mother forgot to assign anyone from "Craze" to be at the courthouse -- and the verdict just came in.

Rex: That was fast.  Way too fast.

Spencer: You want to be alone when you tell the kids?

Blair: No.  I think I'll hold it together better if you're here with me.

Spencer: You'll do fine.

Blair: I tell you, I will never forgive Todd for making me do this to his children.  Jack and Starr, can you come down here a minute, please?

Starr: What is it?  Mom, what happened?

Blair: I, uh -- I need to talk you guys about your Dad and what's going to happen to him.

Evangeline: I need you to focus, Todd.  I need you with me.

Todd: I'm not going anywhere.

Evangeline: Ok, here's the drill.  We go back to the courtroom.  Once the judge comes in, it's going to go pretty fast.  We'll stand, he'll ask the foreman if the jury's reached a verdict.

Todd: We know they have.

Evangeline: Just want you to know what to expect.

Todd: We've been through this before.

Evangeline: Yeah, we have.  If the jury votes not guilty, you're free to go.  But if it goes the other way and the jury voted guilty, we're going to stay calm, no reaction.

Todd: Right.

Evangeline: Ok?  We're going to keep on fighting.  I'm going to right to work on your appeal.  This is not the end.

Todd: I don't know, if I've lost Blair, it is the end for me.

Reporter: Dave, conventional wisdom has it that a fast verdict --

Second reporter: This is, of course, supposition, but it would seem that the jury's reached an agreement --

Third reporter: This was a circumstantial case, so the defense's best hope was for one or two jurors to have reasonable doubt, but that would've led to days, weeks of deliberation, not hours.

First reporter: Commissioner, do you have a statement?  Would you like to comment?

Bo: No, the department will not have a statement until after the verdict comes in.

Reporter: How about a personal statement?  You know the defendant and his family.

Bo: I will not have a personal statement until after the --

Dorian: Excuse me, but I will.  My name is Dr. Dorian Lord.  I am Blair Cramer's aunt.

Reporter: How is Ms. Cramer bearing up under the pressure?

Second reporter: Have you talked to the children?

Dorian: Ms. Cramer has lived through hell.

Clint: No comment.  The lady has no comment.

Reporter: Please, just one statement.  One statement?

Second reporter: Let's go.

Bo: Hey, Hugh.

Hugh: Hey.

Bo: This whole thing didn't take long, did it?

Hugh: Bo, your department put together a great case.  There weren't any unanswered questions.

Bo: So you're pretty sure you're going to win?

Hugh: If we put Todd Manning away, it's going to be a win for this whole town.

Viki: O Lord, you've been so unbelievably good to me.  You gave me back my life, my health.  You saved my Natalie and brought Jessie home.  And I am grateful to you beyond words.  I have to ask you for one more thing.  Please, it's for my brother.  Please keep him safe, whatever happens to him today.  Please?

Roxy: Hey, listen, I am so out of here.  I got to make sure everything is covered at the hotel so I can be around to hear the big verdict.  Bye.

Rex: Ok.  See ya.

Adriana: She didn't need to leave us alone.

Rex: It's not exactly the job of assistant fashion editor to round up news reporters.

Adriana: Please.  The department heads have already started calling me instead of my mother, so I sort of need to do whatever needs doing.

Rex: Well, you look like you can handle anything -- like a boss.

Adriana: Even if I look like I can handle this, it's thanks to you.  You gave me a lot of confidence the other day.  The whole time I was posing for those pictures, I couldn't believe it, but I thought if the photographer thinks I'm doing ok --

Rex: You rocked it.  Annika's got nothing on you.

Adriana: Yeah, except about six inches.

Rex: Well --

Adriana: Seriously, after doing that, I feel I can tackle anything.

Rex: You really like the work, then, huh?

Adriana: I like that it's so intense, unpredictable -- so not like a convent.

Rex: I got to say you don't seem very conventional these days.

[Adriana laughs]

Adriana: Don't, don't make me laugh.  I laugh and I forget how mad I am at you.

Rex: My strategy exactly.

Adriana: I'd better get going to the courthouse.  Are you going?

Rex: A jury doesn't come back that fast unless it's guilty.

Todd: Rex, Rex, come.  Rex, you got to -- you go to believe me.  I don't want you to give up on me, Rex.  I didn't do it.

Bo: Well, you know, circumstantial cases --

Hugh: No, no, I meant personally.  You know, you were always just -- you were so professional, and I kept having to remind myself that you had family connections to Manning.

Bo: Yeah, well, you know, it happens -- small town.  Part of me wishes this whole thing wasn't true, though.  I've seen Blair and her kids go through all this.  I don't like it.

Hugh: Yeah, they're paying for what he did.

Bo: Yeah, they're paying because they stood by him.  But you know what?  You did a great job under some tough circumstances and you had big shoes to fill.

Hugh: Oh, thanks.  I did my best.  I really could've used Nora on this one, though.

Bo: I think you did just fine without her.  And this case would've meant a lot to her and I think she'd be proud of the way you handled it.

Hugh: Thanks, Bo.  Thanks for saying that.

Dorian: Whoa there, Cowboy.  Don't you ever stop me from talking again.

Clint: Blair's been through enough.  She doesn't need to turn on the news and hear you pounding nails into Todd's coffin.

Dorian: She's finally going to get that monster out of her life.  Forgive me, but I feel like celebrating.

Clint: Here's a piece of advice -- don't say that to her if you ever want her to speak to you again.

Dorian: Oh, really?  At least I am here.  Your darling Viki?  Todd's her brother.  She hasn't even bothered to show up.

Clint: She'll be here.

Dorian: Oh?  How are you so sure?

Clint: Because I was with her when we heard that the verdict came in, and Viki stands by the people she loves, especially when they're in trouble.

David: Oh, she'll be here, all right.  Viki's got real strength.

Clint: Excuse me.  I'm going to sit with the adults.

Dorian: Touché.

David: I think he was talking about you.

Dorian: It is very, very childish to eavesdrop.

David: Well, I wouldn't have to eavesdrop if you would stop pushing me away.

Dorian: Je suis desole.  Is it painful, really painful, seeing me with another man?

David: Yes, it is.  I don't like to see Clint or any other man wrapped around your finger.  That should still be my job.

Clint: Yeah, Kevin, the courtroom is jammed.  The reporters are everywhere.  Well, Kelly just didn't need to put herself through this.  No, you guys stay where you are and I'll let you know what happens.  Uh, well, no, she's not -- to be honest with you, I don't know where she is.

Viki: Oh.  I guess you knew where to find me.

Jessica: Wasn't that hard to figure out.

Natalie: Hey, I was just about to brag what great sleuths we are.

Viki: Thank you.

Jessica: It's peaceful here.

Viki: Yes, it is.  I hope that this is not the last peaceful moment we're going to have for a long time.

Starr: So is he going to the courthouse with you?

Blair: Dr. Truman?

Starr: Yeah, Mom.  If he goes, then I'm going.

Blair: No, the courthouse is no place for you, Starr.

Jack: I'll go, then.  Dad said I'm the man of the house now.

Blair: No, sweetie, the -- the courthouse could be a zoo.  We don't know what the verdict's going to be, all right?

Starr: The verdict is going to be that he's not guilty.

Blair: We don't know that for sure, Starr.

Jack: It means he'll have to stay in jail?

Starr: No, Jack, it'll be worse.  He'll go to prison and then he'll never be able to see us again --

Blair: Ok --

Starr: Because he'll be so far away.

Blair: All right, I want you both to sit down, please.  Please just sit down.  I want to talk to you, Jack.  Come here.  Listen to me.  Now, I know that you're both scared -- we all are -- but we're together now, ok, and that's what's important.  All right?  And we can't go saying things that are scary just to make things worse.

Starr: Sorry.

Blair: So what I want you to do is I want you to go upstairs and -- and pack a bag for an overnighter, all right?

Starr: What?

Jack: Yay!

Blair: Yes, ok, you're going to Tim's, ok?  His mom's going to be here in a minute to pick you up.

Jack: Yay.

Blair: And Matthew's with Marianne and she's going to come pick you up.

Starr: Mom, but I want to stay here with you.

Blair: I know you do, sweetie.  I know you do.  But like I said, it could be a zoo, and there's reporters and --

Starr: So?

Blair: "So?"  I want you guys someplace safe, where I know that you're taken care of.

Jack: So you can help daddy, right?

Blair: Right.

Starr: Come on, Jack, I'll help you pack.

Jack: Ok.

Starr: Hurry up.

Blair: Hey, Starr?  Thank you.

Starr: You're welcome.

Spencer: You did great.

Blair: I don't care what the verdict is.  Todd is never going near those children again.

Evangeline: I hate this part of the process.  The jury's already reached a verdict.  We're just waiting to find out what it is.

John: As long as they're out, you still got a shot.

Evangeline: They didn't ask for any instructions, they didn't reread any transcript.  It all happened too fast, you know -- way too fast.

John: Well, it's like you told manning -- it ain't over yet.

Evangeline: Yeah, you saw how comforting that was for him.  Didn't do much for me, either.  I should've gone after Margaret's character more.  I shouldn't have built so much of my case on Todd's testimony.  Maybe I should've called more witnesses, but, you know, there's no going back now.

John: Hey, look, don't go second-guessing yourself, all right?  I'm on the other side and I can tell you did a hell of a job.

Evangeline: Yeah, right.

John: I am right.  I helped put this case together.  If Manning goes down for this, it's because of what he did wrong, not you.  He's fricking lucky to have you.  As far as I can see, no one stands by their clients like you do.

Evangeline: Thank you.

Todd: Hey, when do we leave?

Evangeline: We're just waiting for the court officer to come back.

Todd: Call Blair.

Evangeline: Todd --

Todd: I mean it.  I'm not leaving till I talk to my wife.

Adriana: How can you think Todd's innocent?  I mean, there was all those witnesses, that woman did horrible things, he admitted he wanted to kill her.

Rex: Yeah, but that doesn't mean that he did it.  I mean, some nut case, somebody goes after you, after your kids, you're going to do things that make you look guilty.  That doesn't mean you'd kill her.

Adriana: Why's it matter so much to you?

Rex: It's pretty funny, huh, old Rex Balsom worked up over truth, justice, and the American way?

Adriana: It's not funny.  It's interesting.

Rex: The thing is, a guy like Todd, everybody's gunning for him.  What he did in the past makes him a killer today.

Adriana: You make him sound like a victim.

Rex: I think he deserves someone trying to help him, someone who knows what they're doing.

Adriana: Well, he's got Evangeline Williamson.  I mean, she's the best lawyer in town.

Rex: She's fine.  But, you know, the thing is the whole police department lined up to get the goods on the guy.  It's not exactly a fair fight.

Adriana: Never thought of it that way.  Well, I'd better get going.

Rex: Yeah, it must be pretty hard to pull yourself away, me being in such a good mood and all.

Adriana: I never know what you're going to do or say next.  Rex?

Rex: Yes?

Adriana: The other day at "Craze," I was in a rotten mood and you sort of said that maybe I was so whacked out because I was going after something I really wanted.

Rex: Yeah, I -- I'm in such control of my life.  You know, I give out a lot of advice.

Adriana: Don't let it get you down.  Maybe you're going after something you really want.

Rex: Why you being so nice to me?

Adriana: I really got to go.  Really.

Rex: Yeah, me, too.

Viki: Ready?

Jessica: Huh.  No.  But we're going to get through this together.  Dad's waiting there for us.

Viki: Jessie?  Are you sure you want to do this?

Jessica: I'm going.

Viki: Ok.  But look, when we get there, if you feel it's too much, you can go home.

Natalie: Mom?  We like to think that we're helping you, not you worrying about us.

Viki: Ok.  Thank you.

Jessica: We want to help you get through something for a change.  And besides, being with you and getting through this -- it makes me feel like I haven't just disappeared.

Viki: Well, brace yourselves, my darlings, because even getting into the courthouse is not going to be pretty.

Reporter: Todd Manning --

Second reporter: The defense's strategy of putting Manning on the stand certainly seemed to have backfired.

First reporter: They must be expecting very bad news.

Denton: Hey, Doc, when you pick up the message, you might want to shoot down to the courthouse.  Todd <anning's having a very, very bad day, thanks to you, and it's one I think he richly deserves.  Late.

John: I'll put these back on as soon as you hang up, ok?

Evangeline: Blair?  It's Evangeline.

Blair: Is it over?

Evangeline: No, not yet.  Uh, we haven't gone back to court yet, but Todd wanted to talk to you first. He's right here beside me.  Blair?  Are you there?

Blair: Yeah, I'm here.

Todd: Let me talk to her.

Blair: Well, this is a lost cause.

Spencer: You look fine.

Blair: Well, I don't feel fine.  I think this happens to be the worst day of my life.  Before, when Margaret was out there, I -- I was afraid for my life, afraid for Todd's, the kids'.  But, you know, I always held out hope that someday all of it would just be over and we'd all be a family again.  Todd and I would get married.  That's not going to happen.

Spencer: Todd could be acquitted, you know.

Blair: That's just a legal technicality, Spencer.  When I overheard him try to pay off Denton for keeping his mouth shut about the truth, I knew he was guilty, and how can I take a man back like that?

Spencer: I don't know what to say.

Blair: There's nothing you can say.  It's something that I have to do.  I have to figure out what's going on with Todd and then I have to tell my kids.  Jack -- he thinks his daddy hung the moon.  Starr loves her daddy so much, I don't know if she's ever going to get over it.

Spencer: Oh, she will.  She'll get over it because she has a mother that she can absolutely depend on.

Blair: I never thought that I'd have to be a single parent like this.

Spencer: Well, you've done it before when you thought Todd was dead.

Blair: That's different.  I was just holding on to a -- to the belief that I loved him, that I believed in him.  Now I don't even have that.  And, you know, I think the hardest part of all this is that he doesn't even seem sorry for what he did.  He doesn't seem sorry that he murdered Margaret or his own child or what he's done to us.

Spencer: Sociopaths usually don't have a real concept of others' feelings.

Blair: Well, just when did it happen?  When did it happen to him?

Starr: Mom?  Mom, I was watching TV and they said that they're going to announce --

Blair: What?

Starr: Dad's verdict any minute now.

Blair: Ok, no, no, I want you to turn the TV off.

Starr: You have to go.  Hurry up!

Blair: You turn the TV off now because I don't want jack to hear it.

[Phone rings]

Spencer: Want me to get that?

Blair: No, I'll get it.  Hello?  That'd be great.  Send them up.  Thanks.

Starr: Mom, who was it?

Blair: It's Tim's mom.  They're downstairs.  They're on their way up to -- to pick Jack up.

Starr: So that means that you can go there now, right?  You better go.

Blair: Yes, and Marianne -- Marianne is on her way to pick you up, ok?

Starr: Ok.  Mom, come on, you better get going.

Blair: All right.

Starr: Tell dad I love him.

Guard: I said it's time to go.

John: Hey, look, let's give him 30 seconds.  He's not going anywhere.

Evangeline: Thanks.

John: Ok.  You don't got a lot of time.

Evangeline: All right, Todd, we're going to go back in there, and I want you to hold on to this like a mantra -- "Evangeline believes me.  My lawyer knows I'm innocent."  You know that.

Todd: You're a member of a very elite club.

Evangeline: Doesn't matter how many people agree with me, the system does work.  Maybe not quickly, but eventually.

Todd: Could I have a moment alone?

Evangeline: Yeah.

Evangeline: Even he's surprised I believe him.

John: Just out of curiosity, why do you?

Evangeline: Well, if I had something concrete, don't you think I would've used it in court?  You think I'm chasing windmills, don't you?

John: I know what it's like to need a win.

Evangeline: Yeah, why, because my life sucks?

John: I didn't say that.  I don't think that's true, either.  I was just suggesting that sometimes there's people you just can't help.

Evangeline: Don't worry about me.  I'm going to get through this.

John: I know you will.

Guard: Ok, let's go.

Reporter: Mrs. Davidson --

[Reporters shout]

Clint: Viki, are you ok?  I didn't know where you were.

Viki: The girls did.

Clint: Oh, thank you.

Viki: They were absolutely great getting me through those reporters.  Oh, my God.

Jessica: Yeah, makes me real proud of my former profession.  What a bunch of leeches.

Viki: Well, darling, they're doing their jobs.  You know that.

Natalie: Yeah, if jobs are throwing out personal questions.  Thanks to Evangeline, they have a lot to ask.

Viki: Look, I -- I had to testify for the prosecution in a murder trial and I have D.I.D. Evangeline had to do what she did.  She had to discredit my testimony.

Clint: If they say anything on the way out, I'll discredit them with a left hook.

David: Excuse me, I don't mean to intrude, but I know the back way out of here.  If you want to avoid the reporters, I can show you the way.

Viki: David, that's very kind and I appreciate it.  Thank you very much.

Clint: Well, it would be fun to deck one of them.

[Natalie laughs]

Viki: Clint.

Dorian: Excuse me, Bo, but which one of Viki's many scintillating personalities do you think is coming on to David?

Bo: I --

Hugh: Are you talking about Viki Davidson?

Dorian: Yes.  The woman's shameless.  She'll use any situation to her personal advantage.  Hello.  I'm Dr. Dorian Lord.  I believe we've met before.

Hugh: You're hard to forget.

Natalie: You ok?

Jessica: Um -- yeah.  I mean, no, look, you just told mom to stop hovering over me.  Why don't you take your own advice, ok?

Natalie: Well, I never do that.  I mean, advice is meant to be given, not taken.

Jessica: Look, I'm ok.  I'll tell you if I'm not.

Natalie: Good.  But hearing them ask mom questions about her D.I.D. -- That has to get to you.

Jessica: I just feel bad for her.

Natalie: Well, at least they don't know about you, and dad and I are going to make sure it stays that way.

Jessica: I -- thank you.  I appreciate that you're looking out for me, but I'm not fragile, Natalie.

Natalie: Well, good, because I want you to be completely off-guard when I start hitting you with those fat jokes.  I mean, have you seen your feet lately?

Jessica: Watch it.  Watch it.

Natalie: What?

Jessica: Tess is going to come out and clean your clock soon, ok?

Natalie: Ok.

Jessica: Oh, I just want to get this over with.

Natalie: I know.

Jessica: How much more does she have to take?

Natalie: I know.

Dorian: So I'm saying to myself, as the new editor of "Craze" magazine, we have got a drop-dead gorgeous district attorney who has presented an airtight case against a morally reprehensible felon.  Well, my readers are going to want -- no, no, they are demanding to demand an exclusive interview.

[Hugh chuckles]

Dorian: So shall we schedule one?

Hugh: Uh, Ms. Lord?  Absolutely not.

Dorian: Come on, you've got political ambitions.  Who doesn't want to be interviewed?

Hugh: I can't -- I can't stop this very important, very sad case from becoming a media circus, but I certainly don't have to help.

Dorian: A man with integrity.  Do you know how attractive the public finds that?  And I find it attractive, too.

Hugh: Ahem.

Viki: A murder trial, and she's working the room?

Clint: Viki, are you saying that Dorian is shallow?

Viki: Why isn't she home looking after Blair and Starr and Jack?

Clint: Oh, yeah, yeah, she'd be a great comfort there, wouldn't she?

Viki: Oh, god, I hate this.  I hate this so much.

Clint: Yeah, I know, I know.

Viki: You know, Clint, I've spent most of my life dealing with the really horrible things my father did.  Starr and Jack are going to have to live with this forever.  You know, they don't deserve that.

Clint: Don't put this all on yourself.

Viki: He's my brother and they're his children.  I'm in this whether I like it or not.

Bo: Excuse me.  They're bringing Todd over, so it won't be long now.

Viki: Thank you.

Bo: You ok?  This isn't easy.

Viki: No, I'm ok.  I have a lot of back up, thank you, but thanks for asking.

Bo: All right.  Well, take care.

Viki: Yeah.  Bo?  The fact that the jury's come back quickly -- that's not very good, is it?

Bo: Well, it doesn't look good for Todd.

Viki: I mean, do you really think he did this?

Bo: Viki, I've been in this job for a while now and I've gotten pretty good at letting go at the end of the case, but this one?  I was there when the bodies were recovered.  So whoever's responsible for this, I w want to see them pay.

Reporter: Mr. Manning --

[Reporters shout]

Guard: Your wife’s not here.  Ok like you're on your own. 

Todd: Hey, everybody.  Talk amongst yourselves.  It's only me.

Evangeline: Need anything?  Any water?

Todd: No, I just wish Blair was here.

Evangeline: I'm sorry.

Viki: May I have a word with my brother?

Evangeline: Of course.

Todd: Hey.

Viki: Todd?  Oh, look at me, please?  Please.  I want you to know something, ok?  You're my brother, and I will always love you.  All right?

Todd: Mm-hmm.

Viki: And no matter what happens today, that won't change.  You know, you and I have been through hell together, and there might be more hell to come but I swear to you, you won't go through this alone.  I know that in the past, I've acted like -- well, that I doubted you.  And I'm sorry for that because I know in my soul you didn't do this.  And I will continue to believe that no matter what the jury decides.  I've had a lot of problems of my own recently and I -- well, I kind of feel I've abandoned you in the middle of this . But you know what?  That's over.  Your sister is here for you, and I always will be.  Ok?

Hugh: I want to tell you something.  I didn't prosecute this case with the intention of making a name for myself.  I honestly believe that Todd Manning's guilty.

Evangeline: Uh-huh.  And what if you get your guilty verdict today and it turns out you're wrong?

Hugh: I don't think that'll happen.

Evangeline: Hugh, we both know what happens to men that get convicted of killing pregnant women.  They go to the bottom of the prison food chain.  What if you get your guilty verdict and Todd gets shanked by another inmate before I have a chance to appeal?

Hugh: I have to be prepared to live with that, and so do you.

Jessica: What time is it?

Natalie: 45 seconds since the last time you asked me.

Jessica: Ok.  You know, I'm starting to think that you and mom are right, because all of a sudden I'm getting the feeling like I don't want to be here for this.

Natalie: Ok, all right.  Well, if you want to take off, I'll run interference.

Jessica: Well, what about mom?

Natalie: She'll be fine.  She's got dad.  Just meet me outside, and I'll tell them we're leaving, ok?

Jessica: Thank you.

Natalie: Mm-hmm.

Dorian: Adriana, darling.  Rex, every time I see you lately, you're with my daughter.  Are you two dating?

Rex: Would you knock this off?  This has to be the worst day of Todd Manning's life.

Dorian: Oh, I can only hope so.

Bo: Sometimes these things can be satisfying.

John: And sometimes they suck.

Reporter: All right, Ms. Cramer --

[Reporters shout]

Reporter: Mr. Manning is now in the courtroom and we're only minutes away from hearing the verdict in this very disturbing case.  Courthouse veterans can't remember a jury coming back this quickly in such a complicated case, and as I've said before, no one sees this as a good sign for the defense.  Todd Manning is almost certainly going to face a guilty verdict, and perhaps even the death penalty.

Reporter: It's an almost entirely circumstantial case, but it presented a unique difficulty for the defense.  There's clear evidence that the victim was mentally unbalanced and had subjected the defendant and his family to a reign of terror --

Starr: Yeah, no duh.

Reporter: Including a terrifying attempt on the defendant's teenage daughter's life.

Starr: Me.

Reporter: While this history may garner some sympathy for the defendant, it also provides clear motivation for murder.

Starr: He didn't do it!  Ugh!

Reporter: The trial provided a glimpse into the personal lives of some of Llanview's most prominent families.  For example, when Manning's sister, Victoria Davidson, was called to testify for the prosecution, defense attorney Evangeline Williamson mounted a grueling cross-examination where she attacked Ms. Davidson's credibility by exposing her ongoing problems with multiple personality disorder.

Second reporter: Blair Cramer, who's been at the defendant's side throughout the trial, was noticeably absent this afternoon, but just a few moments ago, she entered the courtroom.  She was accompanied by Dr. Spencer Truman, another witness for the prosecution.  And so the fate of Todd Manning has been determined and he is only minutes away from learning how this jury has judged him.  Wait.  This is it, Charley.  The jury's gone back into the courtroom.

Bailiff: All rise.  Court is in session, Judge Terrance Mc Clellan presiding.

Judge: Be seated.  Has the jury reached a verdict?

Foreman: We have, your honor.

Judge: Will the defendant please rise?  In the charge of murder in the first degree, how do you find?

Foreman: We the people of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania find the defendant, Todd Manning, guilty.

[Gallery murmurs]

On the next "One Life to Live" --

Viki: We're going to fight this.

Todd: No, I said no.

Evangeline: Todd didn't kill Margaret.  I want you to find the person who did.

Starr: I'm going to pray that they find that murderer.  And when they do, I hope he rots in hell.

Todd: Blair?
