At Holden's house, Holden tells Lucinda that Lily wants to plead guilty to premeditated murder. Lucinda tells him there's no way that Lily would deliberately cause someone's death. Holden tells her he doesn't know what to believe anymore.
In their cells, Carly fidgets with the tape recorder Emily brought her. She tries to get Lily to tell her what really happened the night Julia died. She tells Lily it might help her to talk about it. Lily notices that Carly is fidgeting in her pocket and tells her that there are things she should get off her chest; she agrees to tell her the whole story.
Lucinda tells Holden she doesn't care what Lily says, she is sure Lily didn't murder Julia.

Lucinda tells Holden they've got to act fast or they'll lock Lily up for the rest of her life.
J.J. stays back from his dad. Les asks what happened to J.J.'s leg, and when Keith tells him it was an accident Les points out that J.J. had no broken bones when he lived with him. He tells Jack and Keith that if a judge thinks he's a good person and can have J.J., he should have him. Jack confirms the papers are legal but tells Les he's not going anywhere with J.J. Les tells Jack that Keith only wanted J.J. after he found out he had inherited money from his grandparents. J.J. cries to Jack to make him stop fighting.

Jack tells Les if he's changed his life he should start by not frightening J.J. Les apologizes to J.J. and adds he just wants them to be together, better than before. He tells J.J. he brought him a present and tries to hand him a stuffed animal, but J.J. tells Les he doesn't want it because it's for babies. His dad tells him he thinks they just need time to get used to each other and he loves him. J.J. blurts out that he hurt his Mom. Les tells him he was sick, but he went away and learned to be a better person and a better dad. He tells J.J. he doesn't need to hit people anymore. He says he's sorry about what happened to Julia and tells J.J. they've got each other, and the two of them can be a family. J.J. cries and asks him to go away. Jack wants to talk about it, but Les tells him J.J. is his son and he's going with him. He brings in the Federal Marshall to make sure he'll get J.J. The Marshall tells them he's there to enforce the law, and they need to hand over J.J.

At Al's, Gwen tells them she knows of a club she can get them into for free. Casey doesn't think it's a good idea and tells Celia that if Rafael finds out she won't be allowed to date until she's forty. Will and Gwen decide the two of them will go out and leave Casey and Celia to themselves.
As Les tries to take J.J., Jack asks for a minute to say goodbye. The Marshall asks Les to step away and give them five minutes.

Inside Metro, Aaron tells Allison he should be thankful because Allison could be coming home with animals instead of helping people.

Lucinda tells Jessica that it seems too extreme to try a mental defense. Lucinda runs to Lily as they're bringing her into court. Lily tells her she's fine and knows what she's doing. Lucinda tells her she understands she's trying to protect Luke but insists it's the wrong way to go about it.
