On today’s Days of Our Lives recap: Justin busts into the interrogation room to let Rafe know his interview with Bonnie is finito because he's her lawyer. Bonnie is surprised since Justin's attitude was quite salty the day before.

Bonnie wants to start at the beginning, around 2003. Bonnie reminds him of the Buddy Bucks scam involving Calista's husband, who gave her the winning ticket. Calista reminds her it's a 50/50 split and not a total win. Bonnie tries to tell Harrison she's not interested, so he tells Calista to take off. Harrison tries to convince her with a gun and some handsy-hands.

Harrison gets rough with Bonnie and rips her dress. Bonnie then pulls the gun on him, which oddly turns him on even more. Bonnie orders him to stay away from her and Harrison isn't so turned on anymore, he's just mad. He lunges for Bonnie and the gun goes off. Calista comes in and finds her husband dead on the floor.

Justin tells Bonnie it wasn't her fault. Bonnie explains how she had a husband who beat her every day, so when Harrison touched her, she was done. Bonnie recalls how Calista didn't believe her and says she just wanted all the money for herself. When Calista threatens to call the police, Bonnie drops the gun and runs away. Bonnie tells Justin she flushed the ticket and Calista never came after her, but Bonnie eventually went to prison because they found her husband's body in her yard.

Justin wants to know why Calista popped up out of the blue. Bonnie explains that Calista wanted Bonnie to drain Justin's bank account, but she refused. She opted for Xander because it was likely the money was already dirty. Bonnie avoided Justin to keep him from paying for her sins. Bonnie fills Justin in on what happened on their wedding day. Justin claims it was an accident and self-defense. Bonnie is relieved and overjoyed when Justin believes her and agrees to defend her. Bonnie adds that she didn't kill her husband, but Mimi did. She implores Justin to keep it quiet and he tells her he loves her. He assures her all this is over, he still plans on marrying her.
