The judge might understand her situation about how AJ made her believe that her son had been murdered and all she has been through because of AJ.

Dillon tells Georgie that hes worried that his mother will make him pay for refusing to untie her after Luke held her captive.

He promised not to help Luke in any more of his schemes. She protests that that was when he believed that Michael was killed. He tells her that now that Michael was not killed, only kidnapped, he still must remember the man who did it was his cousin. The way that crazy family operates is if you want to see your biological son, you hire a psychopath to kidnap him. If you want to help Nikolas and Emily, you tie your mother to a chair. She tells him she does not believe he is crazy or cursed but maybe he could use his drama to write a screenplay.
