this so badly, considering that Mike is her ex. Katie explains that it is the
best thing for all concerned. She is happily married to Henry now, and Mike has

Dusty has heard enough and is ready to leave. Sierra decides that she would like to listen to what Barbara has to say.
Barbara and Paul both continue to plead Jennifer’s case
and promise that they will work together to make sure that Jennifer doesn’t fail
this time. Finally, they all come to an agreement with a few stipulations that
are non-negotiable. If Jennifer takes off again, World Wide is done with her.

tell her the good news. She is rushed for time though, and after telling Paul
what Craig pulled on her she cuts the call short and Paul doesn’t get to tell
her. Back inside, Barbara has handed Sierra a list of all the crimes that Craig
has gotten away with and tells her that this time, Craig must be put away for
In the squad room, Jack and Tom talk about Julia’s case and Carly’s impending deposition. They wonder where Carly has gotten off to. In the interrogation room, Les has backed a terrified Carly against the wall and very threateningly tells her that he will have his son back. He lightly touches Carly’s cheek and revels in the fear that he sees on her face. Just then Jack, Tom and an officer burst into the room and pull Les off of Carly. Tom tries to keep Jack from beating the crap out of Les as the officer rushes a very amused Les out of the room and back to his cell. Jack yells at the officer for allowing Les to be in the same room with Carly.
Carly is clearly very shaken up by the encounter but
she pretends that all is well with her. She assures Jack that she is fine and
tells him that he needs to apologize to the officer as it wasn’t his mistake.
Jack and Tom both tell her that they would understand if she didn’t want to give
her statement today. Carly insists that she is fine and wants to get it over
with. Jack takes off to apologize to the officer and Tom shows Carly back to the
interrogation room. He takes off to find the stenographer, leaving Carly alone.
Once Carly is alone in the room, she starts to freak out a little bit
remembering what Les did to her.
Later, Keith shows up and asks Tom what the new development in the case is. Tom explains that the first autopsy didn’t do some of the tests that should have been done and that they need to exhume Julia’s body to do another autopsy. Keith is not pleased with the idea at all.

and fixes herself a sandwich and some juice. She hesitates slightly before
sitting on the couch to eat her sandwich. Finally deciding that she is being
silly and sits to enjoy her meal. She takes a bite of the sandwich and reaches
to grab the newspaper that is laying on the table. She accidentally knocks the
juice off the table. Frantically she tries to mop it up with napkins before it
stains the carpet. She realizes that it is ruined and tells herself that she has
ruined everything. She stands and walks to the wall, sliding down the wall into
a ball, she collapses in tears. Jack has arrived home looking for his wife.

find out what is wrong. Carly finally opens up and admits to him that she is
having a hard time dealing with what Les did to her. She tells him that she is
really scared and sobs into his arms begging him to hold her and never let her
