The trial is underway now. Everyone that needs to be there is. The prosecutor approaches the jury to present the case. She talks with the air of someone that is going to easily slam-dunk this case. “Eve Russell tried to murder three people in cold blood.”

Valerie makes a pitch for Chad. She wants him to depend on her more for support. He likes her help but he really should be concentrating on making his own life work with the baby and the office. Chad has to pull his act together, Fox will be watching him and waiting for him to fail. Valerie says that she wants to help and that he is not to worry about Fox trying to get the better of him. She will take care of him.

Fox and Kay are together at his office. She is in her cannery garb and Fox is in his suit. He tells Kay to go into the bathroom as he has a surprise in there for her. She puts her in the restroom so that she will find it, and then he goes to his desk.

He beeps his secretary outside the office using his intercom. “When Kay comes out of the restroom, take the clothes there that you find and throw them away.”

Pilar tells Theresa that she is being used by Alistair for some other reason than sex. Theresa says that what Alistair wants doesn’t matter. She has to get Ethan and Jane and she will do anything to be with them. Pilar knows that the bruises on her daughter’s arms and back are not worth whatever she is doing with Alistair. Theresa has a plan so that she can get home free. “I will turn this place apart inch by inch to find the evidence that I need to get back at Rebecca and Gwen. Alistair said that I could do it.” Pilar orders her daughter to leave the house now, but Theresa will not do that.

The prosecutor tells how Eve tried to poison people. “When I reveal her shameful secrets, you will agree with me that Theresa needs to be put away for the rest of her days,” the woman harps.

Eve turns to Julian. The prosecutor has put her in the worst light possible. Ethan knows that the woman has no proof to back up what she is saying.

Eve steals a look at the back of the room and sees Liz looking at her. Liz waves the ticket at Eve that will take her out of town after the trial.

The prosecutor calls Whitney Russell next to the stand.

Eve panics. What does Whitney know about this?

The prosecutor says that Whitney will be testifying as a hostile witness.

Whitney enters the courtroom and sits.

Ethan explains that Whitney is testifying for the prosecutor against her will.

The prosecutor approaches Whitney smiling. “So should I call you Sister Whitney?” the woman asks. Whitney tells that just calling her ‘Whitney’ will be fine.

Fox has been waiting a while for Kay to come out of the restroom now. “What is taking you so long?” he shouts. She shouts back that she will be coming out soon.

Ivy is outside the door and she hears Fox talking to Kay. He is surprising her. Giving her some type of gift.

Kay comes out of the restroom and is wearing a business suit with office pumps to match. She loves it but it really isn’t her. Fox has come up with this great idea that she can work at Crane for him. He would like to hire her. She doesn't understand. He explains that he needs an executive assistant and she can have the job.

Ivy hears everything from outside the office. This has gone far enough. This has got to stop now. Looks like I am going to be the one to stop this budding romance. That is just fine with her. She is definitely up to the challenge.

Whitney is questioned about her family life. Whitney tells that she has a great family life. Her parents always listened to her and helped her in her life. The prosecutor knows that Whitney isn’t close to her mother anymore. “Why is that? Why are you not close to your mother anymore? Ms. Russell, you are under oath. Under oath to God…” Whitney rethinks how she answered the question that she was asked about her home life, and she admits that actually she is not as close to her mother as she used to be due to changes in their lives. The prosecutor would like to know what those changes were. “Ms. Russell, isn’t it true that your mother didn’t tell you about a bastard son that she had years ago, and that you entered into a relationship with the bastard son, and because you didn’t know the truth from your mother, you ended up having sex with your brother?” Whitney cries as she admits that she had sex with her own brother. Chad is in the room and he cringes knowing that Whitney must be hurting. The crowd gasps at what has been revealed so early in the trial.

Theresa starts searching the mansion looking for the evidence regarding the tabloid. Pilar follows her, begging her to stop this madness, but Theresa will not miss this chance. She begs her mother to search with her.

Eve is upset that Whitney is being destroyed on the stand by the prosecutor. This is the kind of thing that she wanted to avoid.

The prosecutor would like to continue now. “Isn’t it also true that your incestuous relationship with your half-brother also produced a bastard child?” The crowd gasps louder than they did the time before.

Ethan tries to object but the judge allows the questions. This is related information as it shows that Eve has hurt people before. It makes her look callous. The prosecutor asks the question again. Whitney admits the truth about her son and who his parents are. The prosecutor finds that Eve was so immoral that she lied for years to her friends and her family. Those people were hurt by Eve’s venomous sins.

Ethan feels that this is enough delving into Whitney’s past. Not only is this questioning hurting his client, but it is killing Whitney. She is dying up there. The judge agrees with Ethan this time. The prosecutor has taken things too far.

The prosecutor asks about it being true that Whitney joined a convent to escape the things that she has had to deal with because of her mother’s lies. Whitney seems to be agreeing but she is doesn’t really want to. The prosecutor pushes her to make a response to the question. Whitney can’t bear to.

Ethan objects again. Whitney may be a hostile witness, but that still doesn’t allow the prosecutor to badger her. The judge tells the prosecutor that she is telling a story more than asking questions. “Save it for the summation prosecutor!”

Fox tells Kay that he needs someone to work for him that he can trust. “You can kick my butt when I am out of line. I really need someone like that here to help me run my office. We get along fine personally so professionally shouldn’t be that far of a stretch. Come on Kay. Say ‘yes’! She seems on the verge of accepting the offer.

Ivy is listening and she thinks how she would like to kick Kay’s butt right about now. Kay is sinking her claws in Fox and he is falling for it.

Fox waits for an answer to his job proposal. It is not like he will accept ‘no’ for an answer. Her cannery clothes are already gone and she will not be able to get them back. “What is it going to be Kay?”

Ivy will not let Kay have this job. There is no way in hell. If she gets the job then she will be closer to Fox than ever and then who knows where things will go from there. Nope. Ivy will have to shut this down fast.

Gwen calls home to see how Jane is doing.

The nanny tells her that everything is great but that Theresa is in her room with Pilar, and that seems a little weird to the staff. Gwen panics. She knows what it is that Theresa wants. “What are they doing in there?” The nanny tells that the women were given permission by Alistair to search the house for something or other.

Gwen gets off the phone worried.

Rebecca turns the corner, finding her daughter alone in the courtroom hall. “What is wrong dear?” Gwen tells that Theresa and Pilar are in their rooms searching for something. Rebecca panics right away. She pulls out her little flask from her bosom and starts drinking, throwing her head back with each thirsty gulp. Gwen knows this look. “What is it mama? What is wrong? You did destroy that disk with the evidence right like you told me?” Rebecca says nothing. Gwen sees that her mother has probably been lying all along now and that they are going to be royally screwed. Theresa could be putting her hand on the incriminating disk as they speak. Rebecca could have very well ruined their lives by keeping that disk.

Back at the mansion, Theresa and Pilar have finished searching Gwen’s room. They haven’t found anything but Theresa will keep going. She and her mother run off to search elsewhere in the house for what they need.

Rebecca finally admits that she didn’t destroy the disk as she told her daughter she did. She hid it instead. Gwen is really upset now. “Mom! Why would you do such a stupid thing like that?” Rebecca thought that the disk might have come in handy later for some reason or another. Rebecca could get the disk before Theresa, but the only problem is that she has no idea where the disk is now.

The prosecutor approaches Whitney yet again. “Ms. Russell, isn’t it true that the bastard child that you gave birth to is in the courtroom at the back of the court with your brother?” Everyone turns to look at Chad and the baby. This is too much for Whitney. She can’t take these horrible questions anymore. She runs out of the courtroom.

The judge offers to call for Whitney to be brought back to the room but the prosecutor says that she has all that she needs from that witness and Whitney doesn’t need to be brought back for questioning.
