At the courthouse, Franco insists on talking to Alexis right away, but she's not interested in anything he has to tell her. Franco loses his chance when the judge arrives and the trial starts.

Alexis and Scott have their opening statements. Liz is called to the stand and testifies about finding Kiki crying and why. Epiphany and Francesca testify as well. They explain their own abuse at David's hands.

Carly's happy to be home, but blames herself for not seeing the truth about Nelle sooner. She and Sonny commiserate about Michael's grief. Mike and Carly reunite, though he wonders where she's been. Sonny tells Carly that Mike has been slipping further away.

Mike falls and cuts his head, forcing them to go to the hospital for stitches. They run into Stella, who stays with Mike during his visit. Later, Stella tells CarSon that Mike is getting worse and they need to start thinking about facilities. Stella tells them to include Mike in the decision process.

Back at home, Carly believes Sonny needs to have that conversation with Mike. Sonny feels it's not time yet.

Jordan and Curtis are shoehorned into this episode. They share some sexy time, then she sees him receive a text from Chandra. When she mentions it, Curtis says his ex reached out to him, but he's not interested. Later, Jordan seeks out Stella to complain about her contacting Curtis' ex. Stella admits she called her, but then pulled back.

Back at the courthouse, Kiki goes through her history with David. When Scott refuses to cross examine, David tells him to ask about the photo or he'll fire him.

Franco takes Griffin aside and says he knows the truth.

Scott shows Kiki the photo and asks about it. Kiki explains that Griffin was comforting her. Alexis feels she needs to put Griffin on the stand.

Curious about his chat with Griffin, Ava sends Franco a text asking what is going on. At the same time, Scott sends Franco a text telling him to warn Alexis.

Franco accidentally sends a text to Ava instead of Alexis, telling her that Griffin and Kiki had sex.
