Sierra takes the stand in Craig’s trial. She tells the court that she was the one that supported the family. When they separated, he took nothing. He never took her money when they were married. He is a very proud man. Craig was the trustee for Bryant’s trust fund and he borrowed 7 million dollars from his son’s trust fund. Maybe that was why he didn’t need Sierra’s money.

HE can’t believe that Carly gave 1 million dollars to Craig because he needed it. He is having a hard time dealing with this thing… Hal and Emily are there asking for Margo, but she is not there. Jack is angry that they are still trying to free Craig. Jack will not cooperate. He walks away. Hal and Emily have an address for the person that they feel is the real criminal and they want the police to check it out, but they can’t get anyone to help them with their cause. Hal and Emily go over to the address to check it out and they end up getting chased out of there by some old woman who doesn’t want to help them out. Emily and Hal come back later when no one is around and they break into the apartment. They look around and find a whole wall covered with pictures of Julia. It is like a shrine.
