Jack wondered why Bianca would think that Erica had killed Michael. Bianca explained her flashes of memory and seeing someone hiding in the bushes and a black jacket sleeve. Bianca was confused by her memories and Jack tried to convince her she was expressing fear, not memories. Bianca gasped with the realization that Jack thinks Erica is guilty. He denied that and said that Bianca needn't accuse Erica to save Kendall, since the trial was going so well.
Erica continued to lunge at Kendall with scissors, thinking she was actually attacking Michael. Aidan rushed in and pulled Erica off Kendall as she screamed that this time he had to stay dead, and she had been so sure he was dead last time. When Erica collapsed, Aidan wanted Kendall to call the police but she wouldn't. Aidan wanted the police to hear Erica's confession. Kendall called Bianca and told her about Erica's breakdown, asking her to come over right away with David. Bianca rushed out and left Jack screaming for a guard.
Erica came to and wondered why Kendall had drugged her and brought her there. Erica was leaving when David and Bianca came in. Erica was upset and said she'd blacked out, just like the night Michael died. Outside, Aidan accused Kendall of covering for Erica the whole time and she only thanked him for his help. He saw the ring and she told him about her engagement.
Jack came over then, saying he found a friendly judge and was able to post bail. They told him about Erica's breakdown and he rushed in to Erica's side. Aidan told Kendall about Reverend Lomax being safe and secure. He suggested Kendall stay away from Erica.
Erica told Jack that she'd blacked out and Jack reassured her she could not have done anything wrong. Erica said she was upset by the DNA results and the way Bianca is defending Kendall, upset enough to see visions of Michael. Bianca walked in just in time to hear Erica say that because of Kendall, Michael is still alive. Erica was upset to hear Bianca defend Kendall again and left with Jack. Bianca had another flashback and asked David if her mother had killed Michael. David said he thought Erica went home when he left her and that even Erica probably doesn't remember what happened. Bianca realized that Erica's breakdown was caused by her defense of Kendall and the pregnancy. Bianca became terrified of destroying Erica with the truth.
Ryan stammered his shock over Greenlee's suggestion that he sleep with her to prove his love for Kendall. Ryan was firm in his refusal, saying he could not hurt Kendall. Greenlee continued to press and told him she wants him. Ryan asked her to stop playing games and she told him how empty she's been without him and how she needs him. He flatly stated he could not help her, even though at one time he did want her too. She insisted he should sleep with her to get her out of his system, for his sake and Kendall's. They kissed and Ryan admitted he was tempted, now that she was someone he could talk to, but said he could not sleep with her. He promised to always be there for her and that he and Kendall would come to her aid anytime she needs it. He asked Greenlee to respect his decision and leave Kendall alone or their friendship would be over. She promised to not cause any trouble for him or Kendall. Greenlee and Ryan said goodbye at the door, with Kendall listening to them call each other their own secret weapons and Greenlee saying she'll keep her promise about Kendall. They kissed on the cheek and Greenlee left.
Mia was befuddled by Fred Lomax, who seemed to not be playing with a full deck. She tried to find out who he was and realized it was all about Kendall and assumed he was there to marry Aidan and Kendall. He blabbed that Kendall was already married...to Michael Cambias and he had performed the ceremony. He launched into one of his unearthly diatribes and Kendall realized that Aidan was protecting Kendall and she had probably married an imposter. He asked her some questions and she told him about her relationship with Aidan. As she whined, he went out the front door.
Back at the Pine Cone Motel, Mia started a search for Fred. When Aidan returned and she told him he would hate her when he found out what she'd done. Mia was working up the courage to tell him and was delighted to hear Aidan say he did not need to go to Kendall's rescue any more. She changed her mind about telling him and they hugged.
Meanwhile, Reverend Fred Lomax brought his tin foil to the courthouse and sat at the judge's bench, declaring that justice would be delivered by his hands.

At home, Kendall explained to Ryan about Erica's blackout and attack the night before. She remembered seeing Greenlee leave Ryan's the night before and asked Ryan if he would tell her if someone was out to get her. He assured her that she didn't need to worry about Greenlee any more. Juan Pablo knocked at the door and suggested he could give Ryan the real killer. Juan Pablo talked to Kendall and offered to go to the police with Carlos's gun, which may have been the murder weapon. Ryan was not interested in any help from the man who put most of Pine Valley in the line of fire. Juan Pablo told Kendall his offer would stand and left. Kendall tried to get Ryan to understand the need for reasonable doubt and was hurt to hear him use Greenlee's name to justify his lack of trust in Juan Pablo.
Maggie came home to find Bianca searching the web for a one-way ticket out of town as soon as the trial was over. She explained her fear that the truth will kill Erica, given her obviously fragile emotional state. She promised Maggie she would pay half the rent until the lease was up. Maggie looked hurt to be left out of Bianca's plans and assumed Bianca was leaving with Lena. Bianca hadn't thought of that and explained that they aren't even back together yet. She continued to justify her reasons for leaving town for good. Maggie was upset about her leaving and Bianca promised to keep in touch and as she tried to comfort Maggie, they suddenly kissed. Bianca wanted to talk about what happened, but Maggie only wanted to rush out. She did as soon as Lena came in, wondering what had happened. Bianca did not want to discuss it and they left for the courthouse.
In the parking garage, Maggie was still upset and distracted when she started backing out and hit Jamie, who lay on the ground, moaning. He seemed fine, though, and she was so happy she kissed him hard.
At the Pine Cone, Greenlee came to see Mia who was stressing about hurting Kendall, unintentionally. Greenlee told her she had given that up and then accused Aidan of being the father of Kendall's baby. Boyd rushed in, full of concern about their plan to help Kendall gone awry and Aidan rushed out with him. Greenlee tried hard to resist getting involved in Mia's problem, but was keenly interested once she heard about Fred being the one who married Kendall and Michael. Mia begged her to help her find Fred and Greenlee finally agreed. They went to the courthouse to make sure he didn't show up there.
At the courthouse, Palmer and Opal feuded over what he thought was her excessive use of perfume and were interrupted by Rev Fred Lomax and one of his wacky outbursts. Opal went to Justin to ask him to get rid of Senor Loco, pointing to Fred. Justin wasn't interested in anything but convicting Kendall.
Kendall and Reggie arrived at the courthouse, with Kendall saying the truth needs to stay hidden. Kendall was interviewed by the press and explained she would not be taking the stand. Greenlee jumped in, protesting Kendall's innocence, but it only goaded the media into pushing Kendall into agreeing to tell her story on the witness stand. Kendall turned on Greenlee, accusing her of breaking her promise to Ryan. Livia was furious and reminded Kendall of the risks and suggested she take off the engagement ring from Ryan. Ryan came in and hugged Kendall as Mia and Greenlee looked on. The trial started with the prosecution asking for more time to complete their search for Fred Lomax, which was denied. Greenlee had a fantasy of the judge reading a guilty verdict, finding Kendall guilty of murder, treason against friends, fraud against Boyd, Aidan and Ryan, and finding her to be a scheming, lying, backstabbing bitch. Ryan ignored Kendall's cries for help and crawled back to her in the dream...she came back to reality when Mia found Fred and they realized he could tank Kendall's case. Mia wanted to sneak him back to the hiding place and Greenlee finally agreed that Kendall does not deserve prison. But when they turned around, Fred was gone again.
In the courtroom, the prosecution rested and Kendall took the stand. She admitted she hated Michael and that she'd married him to save Bianca, hoping to stop him from stalking Bianca. She explained Michael wanted to own a Kane woman and make Kendall a pariah and in return, she hoped to get their companies back. He promised to leave town and she agreed to send him money. He forced her to sleep with him to seal the deal and insisted they had spoken the week before his body was found. Livia had phone records to prove that phone call. Kendall said he ordered her to buy the meat packing plant where his body had been found. Kendall said she was keeping the baby because it was innocent, pure and perfect. She had everyone in the room eating out of her hand and the judge called a recess.
Mia and Greenlee found Fred again in the lobby and tried to get him to come outside with them. Kendall arrived in time to see them all together and Fred called out to her. Mia and Greenlee tried to get him out of there, but he wouldn't stop talking to Kendall about her marriage and asked about Michael.
Tad went to see Simone in the Fusion office. She was delightfully surprised; they kissed and she wanted to thank him in the supply closet. He tried to start a conversation about their relationship, how happy he was that she brought fun, grins, and giggles back into his life. He said they had started out casual but had changed course. Simone jumped on Tad and to the conclusion that he loves her. Tad stopped kissing and tried a do-over, but Simone would not let him finish trying to tell her about Krystal and Liza. She said that she had no reason to be jealous and was just so happy to have Tad and to be in love. Tad was clearly uncomfortable and could only tell her that she deserved happiness. Juan Pablo came in then and said he was there to see Simone about Michael's murder. Simone did not want to discuss that night and asked Juan Pablo to leave. But Tad wanted to hear the whole story and reminded her that he'd heard Simone promise Carlos she wouldn't tell and that they knew Carlos' gun had been fired that night. Juan Pablo demanded to know if Carlos had killed Michael. Simone said no, Carlos was innocent and so was Kendall...because she was the guilty one, she was the one who pulled the trigger.

Adam turns around and walks away from the door, as David asks Adam why he shouldn't die for framing him. Adam tells him that if he did shoot him, he would not get away with it. David explains that all he has to tell the cops is he and Adam were in a physical struggle and he shot Adam out of self-defense. David even tells Adam that if he confesses on tape to killing Michael, he would not shoot him. Adam does not agree and David blurts that they both know Erica had the planted gun the night Michael disappeared. Adam tries to leave again, but no luck. David tells Adam that he won't let Kendall, Bianca, or Erica take the fall for Michael's death. Tad walks by the window and sees David pointing the gun at Adam. He sneaks in and after wrestling David to the ground, grabs the gun. Instead of letting Adam go, he holds the gun to Adam and David!

When Bianca tells Erica that her blood was used on the DNA test, Erica denies it. She tells Bianca that her blood can not be a match because she aborted her pregnancy. To prove to her mother that she is pregnant, she removes her bulky jacket to reveal her round tummy. She even puts Erica's hand on her belly so she can feel the baby, but Erica quickly removes it, as though she has burned her hand on a stove.
