Nikolas meets with Claudia and asks what is going on. Claudia tells Nikolas about her visit with Johnny. Nikolas says that Lulu is really shaky right now. Claudia asks how sick Lulu is. Claudia says that if Lulu was already cracking before she and Johnny went on the run, it could help his case and if Lulu is too nuts to testify, that is even better.

Nikolas tells Claudia about Lulu's hallucinations and that Lulu is terrified that she will spend the rest of her life in a catatonic state.

Scott tells Lulu that faking being crazy won't keep her out of court and that he is going to subpoena her and she will testify against Johnny.
