James tells someone that he wants results, not excuses.  Randi asks James what he is doing there.  James says that he is looking for his daughter and asks if Randi can help.

Liza tells Annie that Adamís testimony is their most powerful shot at winning the case.  Annie fires Liza and says that she is going to represent herself.  Liza asks if Annie is willing to take this gamble because she doesnít trust Liza.  Annie says that she wouldnít trust Liza if this was just a parking ticket.  Liza asks who Annie does trust.

JR tells Little Adam that he did a good job.  Little Adam runs over to Adam.  JR says that they decided to drop by and that they thought they would get into the spirit of the season.  JR says that he wants to focus on the positive and them coming back together.  Adam says that JR is forgetting that they had a lot of serious issues before Annie appeared in his life.  JR says that they both need a second chance.  Adam says that he is supposed to be at the hospital to get Annie.  JR asks if Adam would like to say goodbye to his grandson first and Adam says that he does.

James says that Randi and her family are his only lead to Madisonís whereabouts.  Randi asks James to tell her that Madison isnít after her again.  James says that he hopes she isnít because she was getting the help she needed in a private facility.  Randi reminds James that he let everyone believe that Madison was dead and James says that he felt it was the only option to protect his family and Randiís.  James says that he doesnít want to give Randiís family any trouble and doesnít want this to get out.  Randi asks what James wants and James says that he wants his daughter back.  Randi says that she will find Madison and this time she will stay at the hospital.

Frankie says that the bruises are different ages and asks how long Madisonís father has been hitting her.  Madison asks Frankie not to make her talk about him.  Frankie says that if Madison doesnít fill him in, he may need to contact her father to find out what the story is.  Madison says that she never meant to be found and is just passing through on her way to a new life where her father canít lock her up or drug her.  Madison says that he has become a social liability to her father and that he hates her for it.  Madison says that she made a big mistake letting the woman bring her there and Frankie asks what woman it was.

Annie says that she will put everyone who went after her for Stuartís murder on the stand.  Liza asks what the purpose of that is and Annie says that it will expose them as being hypocrites and then they will see who the jury believes.  Liza suggests that Annie is afraid that Adam will turn on her, but Annie says that it is ridiculous.  Liza suggests that Annie fired her because she is afraid that Liza will help Adam sink her, but Annie says that Adam loves her and would never do that.  Liza asks why Annie fired her and says that Adam is her most powerful witness.  Adam walks in and says that Lizaís job is to represent Annie, not upset her.  Liza says that Annie has decided to dig her own grave and has fired her.  Liza asks Adam if he brought a shovel.

Madison says that Erica promised that she wouldnít tell anyone about this and that Madison needs Frankie to make the same promise.  Frankie says that there are people who can help her, but Madison says that she can handle things on her own.  Madison says that it was a mistake for her to pass Jesse that note because she has put them through too much grief already.  Frankie asks about the note and Madison says that she asked Jesse for help when they crossed paths at ConFusion a few weeks before.  Madison asks Frankie to promise that he wonít tell anyone about this, especially Jesse and Frankie does.

Fred asks if they have pudding and says that it cures his teeth itching.  Natalia says that they do and Fred says that banana works best.  Brot tells Fred to sit down and read something.  Brot says that thanks to his investigative skills, they know that Madison North is back in town.  Angie walks up and asks what they mean by that.  Natalia tells Brot that it is time for him to take his witness to the ER for some debriefing and detoxing.  Brot leaves with Fred.  Natalia tells Angie that Madison is back and that Jesse is questioning Erica about it right now.  Angie says that she is going down to the station to see what she can find out.  Natalia says that Jesse wants to handle it all by himself, but Angie says that he wonít be kicking her out.

Erica says that Jesse isnít taking this seriously enough.  Jesse says that if things are as bad as she claims with Madison, then the police should take over.  Erica says that she expects a full report by the end of the day.  Frankie walks in and Jesse asks if he found out that Madison is back in town.  Frankie says that he just came from treating her and confronts Jesse about the note from Madison.  Jesse says that he kept it quiet for Frankie and Randiís sake, but his people checked it out and came back with nothing.  Frankie asks if Jesse knew that Madisonís father was keeping her prisoner and beating her up.  Jesse says that he didnít know until Erica just told him and suggests that it could all be staged.  Randi comes up and tells Frankie to listen to Jesse.

Adam asks why Annie fired Liza.  Annie says that Liza is close with all her enemies and was going to sandbag her.  Adam asks Liza if it is true and Liza says that she is out of there and that she will be sending her bill.  Adam asks what Annie was thinking about going into the trial with no attorney.  Annie says that Adam doesnít know what it is like to be hated so universally, but Adam says that he does.  Annie says that sometimes she feels like nobody will be on her side in there and Adam says that it must feel very lonely.

Annie says that she doesnít need Liza as long as she has Adam.  Adam promises Annie that he will be in the courtroom with her and that she wonít be alone.  Annie says that she will spend the rest of her life making sure that Adam doesnít regret choosing her and that she knows it has cost him a lot with his family.  Adam says that it is getting late and that he has to go.  Annie asks him to stay a little longer, but he says that she needs her rest for the trial.

JR says that Little Adam misses his grandpa and that he missed the mansion too.  Colby says that JR could have come back at any time, even with all the problems.  JR says that he wanted to rebuild the family, but Adam kept putting Annie in the way.  Colby asks JR what makes him think that Adam will choose him and Little Adam over Annie this time.  JR says that the trial will make everything real clear and final and that it could be their last chance.  Colby asks JR to promise that he isnít going anywhere.  JR promises that he is staying with the family that he loves, but wonít let go of his life.

Erica asks James what brings him to town and he says that he is trying to track down an elusive investment.  Erica says that sometimes they have a way of getting away from you because it isnít meant to be yours.  James says that he hopes to wrap this up and be gone by tomorrow, but Erica says that she has the feeling that he might be tied up in Pine Valley for quite some time.

Jesse says that he is on Randiís side, but Frankie just saw her and thinks that they might be missing something.  Randi suggests that they put Madison and James together and be done with it, but Frankie says that it isnít that simple.  Randi says that she is going home to lock the door, bolt the windows and hide in the closet and leaves.  Angie comes up and asks if Randi found out that Madison is back.  Jesse says that they have to figure out something and Frankie says that they have to keep her father away from her.

Liza tells Marissa that they are off the case because Annie has decided to represent herself.  Liza says that she is going to get started on the paperwork to remove herself as Annieís attorney and tells Marissa to go home to her husband.  Adam comes up and tells Marissa that JR is pleased with the change in the case.  Marissa says that JR is seeing things differently now and is looking at life a whole new way.  Adam says that he has to make a choice between family and love, but Marissa says that JR is hoping that Adam will choose both, since it is Adamís family that he loves.

Annie watches a reporter on TV talking about the trial and throws the remote against the wall.

Brot tells Natalia that Fred is taken care of.  Natalia says that she is doing the report on Fred and trying to keep Madisonís name out of it until Jesse tells them what to do.  Brot asks if she is writing about him ignoring her.  Natalia says that the point is that procedure is it when you are a cop.  Natalia tells Brot to go get them a snack and he leaves.  Natalia writes down that she highly recommends Brot and credits his instincts.

Adam asks if JR is still there and Colby says that he had to take Little Adam home for bed.  Colby asks Adam if he wants to help her hang the ornaments that she found.  Adam says that he needs to be alone with his thoughts for a while and Colby says that she is going to bed.  Adam asks Colby to turn out some of the lights on her way, so that his thoughts can have some alone time with the tree.
