Carly knows that Craig hates Paul, but she finds that he is getting out of hand with this vendetta. Craig warns that Paul is a paranoid person. He burned molly. Carly had no idea.

Clarke smiles coyly at Alison, knowing that he will probably win this one.

Lily says that she finally wants to work things through. Holden can’t believe her. She wants to work things out now? Holden says that Lily needs professional help, but she only wants her husband’s arms around her. Holden wants to call the Dr. Michaels. Lily demands to know where her children are. Holden tells that the kids think that their mother is at the hospital, and if she wants to see them again, she better get herself into that hospital.

Holden only knows that he has been lied to. She maintains that she is a grown woman who didn’t run off. She only lied to get away. She is sorry for doing that. Seeing Dusty was more important than keeping her word to her family. Lily says that checking into a hospital is something that you do for yourself. Someone shouldn’t force you into doing that.

Aaron and Curtis decide that they have to go off and do something. Alison is worried seeing them leave her as she is going to testify. Aaron tells Alison that he is going to make sure that she isn’t going to be left twisting in the wind.

Aaron shows up on Lucy’s doorstep. She tries to shut the door, but he stops her. He tells her that she has to do the right thing, and testify. She says that she already decided that she couldn’t go through that. Aaron tells her that if she wants to help wit the case, she will have to testify now. Lucy says that testifying is too humiliating. She says that he should go, as she doesn't need him to rescue her. He tells her that he is there for Alison. She helped Lucy out, and now Lucy needs to return the favor.

Molly reveals that she knows why Carly is there. Molly knows that Craig told her that she had information. Molly can see that some things never change.

Darla knows about the taping that was a disaster on television, and she asks if she can have a tape of that. Jennifer gets upset and tells the woman sharply that this is none of her business.

Jordan can see that things are getting out of control. He jumps in and calms the interviewer down. She complies with Jordan’s wishes, and nicely ends the interview. Darla leaves, promising to call Jordan in the future. Jordan tells Jennifer that he wasn’t trying to trump her to win over Barbara; he was only trying to keep the sharks at bay. Jennifer is suddenly quiet. Barbara returns to the office, and Jennifer is about to tell the truth, but Jordan jumps in saying that Jennifer was great at the interview. Jennifer admits that she lost it at the interview. Jordan saved her though. Barbara knew that she left her daughter in good hands. Jennifer thanks Jordan, and shakes his hand. He holds her hand, and tries to kiss it, but Jennifer tells him to save that for Darla.

Craig sees Carly returning to his table. He sees that she is still angry. Carly picks up Craig’s water, and dumps it on him. Carly says that Molly denied what Craig has been saying. Carly sees that Craig is losing his mind. Craig can’t control his own life, so he really should stop trying to control hers.

Curtis says that he has found out that the bartender from “Yo’s” quit his job and left town the night before. He was someone that could have helped them.

Alison is called to the stand. The bailiff swears her in.

Aaron explains that Alison is going to look bad when every mistake is thrown in her face. Lucy didn’t ask Alison to do this.

Aaron hopes that Lucy can live with herself, if she does nothing.

Lily is crying now. She sees that she is beaten. She would like to at least say goodbye to the children. Holden tells her that she already said her good-byes. Lily said that she was going to come back when she was better, and she feels that she is better now. Holden knows that not much will change over night. He will prevent her from seeing the kids until she gets help. He would really hate to take her to court, but he will. She sees that he means business. She tells Holden that she is not going to let anyone keep her from seeing her children, not even Holden. She has her coat on, and she marches out the door.
