Erin and Aidan go to see Jonathan and ask
him why he doesn’t want Livia to ask for bail so he can get out. He tells
them that it’s not that bad in jail. He likes it there and enjoys their
Babe drops the bombshell on JR that she might be pregnant. Hearing that, JR does not know if she’s bluffing or if it’s true. She tells him that she now knows that it’s impossible for them to date or be friends or have any type of civilized contact. Janet is hiding in the tunnels and overhears and asks how stupid they can be if they don’t know about birth control
Jamie tells Amanda that he wants to know about the secret involving herself, her mom and the warehouse. She tells him the same story that she told him earlier; that she was seeking out that place as part of her job at New Beginnings. He knows she’s hiding something. He holds the doll and tells her he needs some answers now.
Marty tells Di that cyber geniuses always come in handy, and he is the best. He asks her if she would like a drink and tells her that he would like a “tall, cool beautiful blond.” Ryan walks in and he’s shocked to see Marty getting friendly with Di. He tells him if he lays a hand on Di, Ryan will rip his arms out from their sockets.
Before the court hearing, Zach enters the
Ryan notices Marty and asks him if he has some vodka. Di tells Ryan that she believes that Marty is the guy for the job. Ryan obviously knows he mustn’t reveal to Marty that he is Zach’s enemy. He tells Marty he knows that he “pulled the plug” for Zach that night at the fertility clinic and then Ryan tells Marty he needs him to pull the plug for him this time.
Lily informs Jonathan, Aidan and Erin that she knows all about the woman with the crazy costumes, and reveals many technical details. They have no clue how she could have found that out but she seems to be onto something.
Amanda tells Jamie that she’s not going to sell out on her mother. Her mother has done everything that she did for Amanda. She tells Jamie that she trusted him and he betrayed her and proved he does not care about her. He asks her what he’d have to do in order to care about her and prove himself trustworthy. Should he ignore that Babe got pushed down a flight of stair and that five people almost got killed in a truck sinking into quicksand? Amanda goes out the door and Jamie demands to know where she’s going. Meanwhile, the blond Barbie doll is sitting on the couch, as though Janet left her there to prove something.
Babe tells JR he’s so full of himself and
she can no longer deal with his behaviors. She goes out the door and he
urges her to wait. She tells him that she feels a lot better to be rid of
him. It’s like she woke up from this big nasty dream and she now knows
she will be doing just great with her baby. He asks her if she’s
faking. She tells him he will never have any rights to her body or to her
baby. She tells him that she will have this baby on her own and be able
to make it on her own until she finds a man who is
worthy of her and her baby. He asks her if she is considering
Jamie. She asks what if that was, in fact, the case. She also
reminds him that she is not the desperate little girl that he met on the piers
Lily informs Jonathan,
Ryan tells Marty he should be careful with the tone he is taking. He asks Di if she tested him to get the free diamonds by hacking the computer for the department store. She tells him that it’s true that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and she wanted to get them for free. Marty tells Ryan he does not buy that he’s Slater’s associate. If he is then why didn’t Zach introduce them personally? Ryan explains that after the knife to the gut, Zach did not have a chance to do so.
Zach tells the DA that he believes that Erica would not have any motives to attack her future son-in-law. She was obviously confused. The DA tells Zach he can think whatever he wants but they still intend to pursue charges against Erica. Jack tells them they will have proof that she was drugged. He tells them that they can make up all kinds of stories about Erica being drunk or drugged or having too many cupcakes but he’s tired of all of these celebrities getting away with crimes. Zach tells them that when he’s put on the witness stand and sworn to take the oath, he will tell them that it was completely an accident. He reminds the DA that the prosecution will look less than competent to be pursuing this case if the crime victim himself testifies what he’s about to testify. He tells them that the only thing on trial should be his clumsiness and this case against Erica Kane should be null and void.
Ryan attempts to convince Marty that he and Slater are friends and partners, and when Zach recovers from his injury he can prove that to him. Marty tells Ryan that he knows that whether injured, incapacitated or in a body bag on his way to the morgue, Slater never fails to stay in contact with everybody he does business with. He knows if Zach was doing business with Ryan, he’d have heard about that by now.
The trial starts. The judge enters
and announces that it’s the people vs. Erica Kane. The DA then
tells them that due to exculpatory evidence that is just coming to light, the
DA’s office is dropping all charges against Erica Kane. The judge then announces
that Erica is free to go.
After observing the picture of Amanda, Jonathan tells Aidan, Erin and Lily that the woman he saw did not look like Amanda. Aidan asks him what it is that he recognized about this woman that was obvious. Jonathan says that he would never forget her voice.
Amanda goes to find her mother at the
At the courthouse, Josh tells everybody if they are going to blame anybody for what happened to Erica, they can blame him. Jack asks him what he is saying. He tells them that it’s his responsibility to protect Erica, and he will resign if Erica wants him to. Hearing that, Erica graciously tells him that none of that was his fault. At that, Josh almost admits that he did drug Erica.
JR, Babe and Jamie catch Amanda red-handed. She tells them she can “explain,” but they tell her that they know she’s guilty of everything.
Marty admits to Di and Ryan that Zach Slater paid him to do illegal business including turning off the electricity at the fertility clinic. Suddenly, Ryan pulls out a tape recorder. Marty asks him if he’s a cop. Ryan tells him that now that he’s got the goods on him, from now on, Marty works for him.
Lily then tells Jonathan that she believes he’s innocent, and she tells him that she wishes he’d post bail so that he can take her to the Mardi Gras ball. Jonathan tells her that he will ask for bail so that he can take her to the ball.
Erica goes to the
