She swears it wasn't Bernardi. Justin questions her as to where that money came from if Bernardi wasn't accepting a large sum from an outside source.

Jennifer tells Abigail how she told JJ there had to be new rules and he just left. Abigail wonders what he's thinking and where he's going to stay.

Jennifer hopes he has enough sense to not risk himself again. Jennifer says she's being tough this time and has called in backup to set JJ straight.

JJ says it's not about hurting her but he needs some space and time to cool off. Hope asks where he plans on cooling off. JJ asks Hope if he can crash at her place for a couple of days.
Justin awaits an answer from Marge. She insists that Bernardi wasn't a dirty cop and everyone knows it. She complains about EJ being a DiMera. Justin again asks Marge if she knows where the money came from. Marge complains that he can't do this and says she doesn't know where it came from but insists it wasn't Bernardi's. Marge says someone else must've put the money there but it wasn't him. Justin questions who else had access to the account. Marge again goes after EJ being a DiMera and says they can do whatever they want to get access. Marge shouts that it's the only explanation that makes any sense.

Abigail says he lied about being expelled from school for drugs then got arrested for the same thing. Abigail talks about Jennifer always trying but JJ kept disrespecting and lying to her. JJ decides it was dumb to agree to talk to her and slams his backpack down. Abigail doesn't know why she thought she'd actually get through to him.

Edward says their initial test showed everything was clean but they kept digging and found a discrepancy that the bank had been hacked. Melinda goes over the bank records.

Melinda continues to go over the deposit into the bank account. Edward mentions that his team traced the deposit to the kamen islands and talks about those types of deposits coming from someone who has unlimited means.
Jennifer tells JJ that she should've brought him home right after Jack died but she thought it made sense not to disrupt his life. She calls it a bad call on her part as he needed to be with them. Jennifer says when he did get home, she should've paid more attention to him. He asks what she's getting at. Jennifer wants to own up to her lot of mistakes and wants JJ to own up to his.

She asks him to let her help him get his life back on track.
Melinda finishes with Edward while staring down EJ. Justin has no further questions but reserves the right to call the witness back. The judge calls recess for an hour. Justin steps out to think about this as everyone else leaves but Sami and EJ. Sami tells EJ that it's over and she's going to prison for the rest of her life. EJ tells her not to give up hope. Sami tells him no more promises as she knows he's done all he can for her. EJ tells her that he's so sorry. Sami understands why he did what he did and kisses him before being escorted back to her cell. Justin returns to the court room. EJ asks if it's as bad as they think. Justin declares that they are royally screwed. Justin says the jury believes it was a setup and they hate him, EJ, and Sami. EJ argues that they haven't even presented their case yet. Justin says it would only do more harm as they have no evidence or proof. Justin declares that the only thing that could save Sami is a miracle.
