Carly is concerned about Josslyn's feelings about reliving the video in open court. Josslyn reassures her the trial is about making sure Trina gets exonerated.

DA Arden questions Cameron on the stand about his relationship and friendship with Trina. Cameron testifies that Trina was the only one in the cabin with him and Josslyn. Diane's cross involves Cameron's friendship and loyalty to Trina.

DA Arden questions Josslyn, forcing her to testify that Trina was drunk. However, Josslyn goes off on a tangent and the DA is forced to have her classified as a hostile witness. Josslyn testifies that Spencer and Esme left, and that she didn't see Trina after she went to bed. Josslyn mentions that she and Cameron stepped out of the cabin briefly and has to admit she doesn't know if Trina left her room.

Brando complains to TJ that Sasha has been lying to him for months and doesn't understand why he didn't see the signs. TJ reassures him, certain that Sasha will find her way forward.

Willow stops by the cemetery to speak to baby Jonah's grave to tell him about her pregnancy. Nina and Liesl are walking by, and they overhear her.

TJ calls Willow to the hospital to tell her the results of her other tests.

Esme is shocked when Spencer tells her that he found her birth mother. Spencer says Victor used his connections and found the woman in Portugal. Esme asks why Spencer did this for her and he says he was trying to find a way to make it up to her.
