In court, Blair responds to Judys questions that Todd has made a lot of mistakes. Judy asks her if its nothing more than a mistake when he was ready to peddle Jack off to people on the other side of the planet.

Blair admits that they found that out when Jack desperately needed a bone marrow transplant to save his life.

Judy then concludes that its entirely possible that Blairs children would not be alive today had Todd been able to find them. She also asks what kind of sound judgment Blair has herself. She reflects that if Blair has her own issues that make her a questionable candidate to have custody of Tommy. She has gone to St. Annes. She attempted to kill Tai Delgato.
