Spinelli offers to help Jason with some paperwork, but Jason tells him to concentrate on getting better. Maxie comes out and asks how she looks in her outfit for court. Jason says that Maxie looks fine. Maxie says that she needs to look honest and that she isnt sure she can pull it off. Maxie says that she needs to look conservative on the stand before she perjures herself, unless Spinelli can hack into the court records and take her name off the witness stand.
Claudia asks Ric how long he has been there. Ric says that she looked uncharacteristically peaceful and he didnt want to disturb her. Claudia says that she would be feeling a lot better if he was there to tell her that she was getting back on the stand so that she could save Johnnys life.
Anthony asks Scott for a minute. Anthony says that it is important that Scott hears what he has to say, for Serenas, Scotts daughter, sake. Scott says that if Anthony goes near Serena, he will stick a knife in him. Anthony says that Scott has been so busy avenging Logan, that he has forgotten that he has another child he could lose.
Laura asks how Lulu is doing. Lulu thanks Laura for taking care of her the previous night. Lulu says that she doesnt know what she would do without Laura. Lulu says that Johnny is on trial for his life and that they could end up killing him because he made the stupid mistake of covering for her.
Lucky calls Sam and says that he thinks he found something to tie Karpov to the counterfeit drug ring.
Maxie asks if she looks better now. Jason says that it doesnt matter what she wears. Maxie says that the jury uses visual clues to make judgments and that sometimes a person cant overcome a first impression. Jason says that even if Spinelli hacked into the court records and deleted her name, Scott wouldnt forget her because it doesnt work that way. Maxie says that she is doomed then because Scott is going to rip her apart on the stand and she will get defensive and say something incriminating enough to be arrested for accessory to murder. Jason says that if she keeps thinking that way, she will make it happen. Spinelli interrupts them. Spinelli asks Jason to be more sympathetic towards Maxie and asks Maxie to walk into the courtroom with confidence and a positive attitude. Maxie tells Spinelli how wonderful he is and assures him that he is her best friend.
Scott tells Anthony that no matter how many threats he makes, it wont save Johnny because Johnny murdered Logan and will get a lethal injection for it. Anthony says that Scott forged the documents saying that Logan was a cop so that he could upgrade the charges against Johnny so that he would face the death penalty. Anthony says that he will save Johnny by any means necessary and if that means that Serena gets caught in the crossfire, Scott will be the one to blame. Scott says that his daughter is safely out of Anthonys reach. Anthony says that Serena lives alone and tells Scott her address.
Claudia says that Ric should be in court, but Ric says that he wanted to check on her because there was time. Claudia says that she is going to be fine thanks to Sonny for pulling her out of the car. Claudia says that she doesnt really know who caused the accident. Claudia says that she can fix it and convince the jury that Johnny is innocent if he will put her back on the stand. Ric tells Claudia that she needs to focus on recovering and that getting Johnny acquitted is his job. Claudia says that Ric isnt sure that anyone can get Johnny out of it.
Lulu says that she could end the whole trial in a second by walking into the courtroom and confessing. Laura says that Lulus credibility has been damaged by being in Shadybrook. Laura tells Lulu to look at it through Johnnys eyes and says that Johnny sounds a lot like Luke. Laura says that Johnny created the situation by taking the blame for Logans death and that she is sure he has a plan. Laura says that she will support whatever decision Lulu makes. Lulu says that she just needs to think and thanks Laura for helping. Nikolas walks in and tells Lulu to get what she needs to travel because they are leaving the country immediately. Lulu says that she isnt going anywhere.
Patrick tells Robin how great she looks. Liz asks if the baby has settled down and Robin says that she and the baby enjoyed a restful evening. Patrick asks if Robin can do a consult and she agrees. Patrick says that he will find her when he is done. Liz says that it is impressive that he didnt bring up the concept of marriage. Patrick says that he gets that Robin doesnt want to marry him and that it is better to live down Robins expectations and let the chips fall where they may.

Jerry tells Nadine that he has heard rumors of a new shipment of counterfeit drugs coming in and wanted to let Nikolas know. Nadine asks why he isnt telling the police. Jerry says that his motives are more self-involved because he is more concerned with Alexis. Jerry thanks Nadine for agreeing to pass on the message.
Maxie apologizes for kissing Spinelli because it is breaking all of their rules, but Spinelli says that he isnt offended. Maxie says that she just wanted to let him know how much he means to her, in case she goes to jail. Spinelli says that Maxie wont be in jail and that if she does go to jail, he and Jason will break her out. Maxie thanks him. Jason tells Maxie not to volunteer any information and stick to her story. Jason says that Maxie kept the secret this long, and that means that she can handle court. Jason wishes Maxie luck. Maxie says that she wishes Spinelli could be there, but tells him to take care of himself. Spinelli asks what if that is the last time he will see Maxie leaving a room without shackles on.
Nikolas apologizes to Lulu and asks why she wouldnt want to leave a place she hates. Lulu says that she is sick and needs to get well. Nikolas says that he has arranged for her to go to a clinic in Switzerland, where she can get well. Lulu asks why it is so urgent and Nikolas asks why they should wait. Lulu realizes that Nikolas doesnt want her to testify for Johnny and that is why he is trying to get her out of the country.

Jason admits that he knows.
Lulu tells Laura that she just missed Nikolas. Laura says that it was intentional. Lulu wonders why Laura wouldnt want Nikolas to know that she is getting better. Laura says that it is very possible that she will relapse and she doesnt want to put Nikolas and Lucky through that again. Lulu says that she has to tell Nikolas because he wants to sweep in there and take her to Switzerland. Lulu says that she has to explain why she cant go. Lulu says that it was Johnnys idea to get her out of the country, so that she cant testify. Laura says that it is a good idea, but Lulu says that she isnt leaving Laura. Laura says that it is really Johnny that Lulu doesnt want to leave. Laura says that confessing is the worst possible thing that Lulu could do.
