At the farm, Cassie interrupts a romantic interlude with Edmund to make preparations for a visit to the fertility clinic the following day. Edmund is trying to convince Cassie to relax as she hustles outside with the recycling bin. Cassie stumbles and Edmund reaches to pick up the statue he gave Jonathan the day before. He stares at the broken heirloom he gave his nephew and recalls telling him that few things matter as much to him as the statue and asked him to take it as a gesture of his intent to make his nephew an accepted member of the family. Edmund seethes as he tells Cassie he tried to reach out and is spit in the face for his efforts. Cassie tries to tell Edmund that it must have been an accident but Edmund is convinced that Jonathan is sending a message that things are not over between them. Edmund vows that if it's war the boy wants - he will get it! Cassie is afraid of what Edmund might do and says they have to turn to Reva who may be the only person who can reach her son. They phone Reva but realize it was mistake when Reva begins to attack Cassie and Edmund's relationship.

At Reva's house, Jonathan tells his mother that Edmund started the fire in the barn that almost killed Cassie and RJ because of his jealousy of Jeffrey O'Neill. Reva doesn't believe his claims at first but realizes his information must have come from Dinah. Reva is disgusted that Dinah is still interfering in her sister's life, but is not convinced she should tell Cassie about the fire. Jonathan, undeterred, reminds his mother he is afraid of his uncle. Reva doesn't fall for it this time and tells Jonathan she needs time to think. After she leaves, Dinah arrives and begins to kiss to Jonathan. Her happiness is short-lived when Jonathan admits he gave her up as his source. Dinah is furious but calms down after he tells her their plan to break up Edmund and Cassie is going along as planned. They begin to kiss passionately as Ross watches in revulsion from the window.

Pandemonium breaks out in the courtroom of Harley's murder trial as Gus harangues Lizzie on the witness stand. Alan demands that Gus not sacrifice his own niece with his lies while trying to save Harley. In an attempt to gain control, the judge threatens to hold Alan in contempt unless he sits down. Harley is worried about Lizzie and asks Gus if knows what he is doing. Despite objections from the DA and Alan, the judge allows Gus to continue his questioning but warns him to be careful. Gus proceeds with questioning Lizzie about the night her father was killed and reminds her that her dad had abducted her siblings. Lizzie says her father was not himself at the time and needed professional help. Gus uses this as an opening to bring up Lizzie's past riddled with crimes and cover-ups.

Beth watches in horror as Gus continues to berate Lizzie until she passes out. Beth races to Harley and demand she put a stop to this - Lizzie has been through enough! Harley agrees but can't stop Gus from trying to prove she is innocent.

While the court recesses so Lizzie can recover, a messenger brings lab results to Jeffrey O'Neill. The messenger tells the DA that the envelope contains a sample sent in by Henry Bradshaw who indicated the contents have something to do with the case. When Lizzie returns to the stand, Gus continues his line of questioning until she breaks down and says "I did it. I picked up the gun and shot him."

She maintains that they should avoid each other but she knows he still should have a relationship wit Blake.. When she realizes he's behind her, her resolve to avoid him doesn't seem that strong and she suggests that they go to dinner to discuss how they would avoid each other. Reva is on the phone at Company trying to reach Cassie. She's getting frustrated because no one knows why Cassie cancelled her in-vitro at Cedars. As she's ending her call, Jonathan comes by and asks her what's wrong. When she tells him that she was supposed to accompany Cassie to the doctor today but Cassie cancelled without telling her, Jonathan suspects it was Edmund's doing. He then suggests that maybe Cassie cancelled the procedure herself when she learned about the night of the fire. Reva then admits that she didn't tell Cassie since Cassie was so happy about trying to have a baby with Edmund. When Jonathan admits that he set up Reva and Cassie's meeting yesterday, Reva is touched because she thinks it was so they could make up. When Jonathan sees a nurse from Cedars, he gets an idea and pumps her for information on Cassie's whereabouts. He easily gets the information and gives it to Reva.

Reva then goes in to see Cassie, who is groggy. Reva starts to tell Cassie that there's something she needs to know about Edmund.

At Harley's trial, Gus calls Alan to the stand. Since this is totally unexpected, the court takes a very brief recess, enough for Alan to threaten Gus that he's going to lose everything. He then tells Gus that he will get custody of Zach and that boy will grow up hating his mother and her family. Gus maintains that he doesn't need to hate Alan to love Harley, though Alan is making that easy. Nth Alan on the stand, Gus starts asking Alan if he loved Phillip and whether Phillip had enemies. Alan maintains that he did love Phillip and his son, who was simply misunderstood, had no enemies save one--Harley Cooper. Gus then starts listing all of the despicable things that Phillip did before he died, as a way to discredit Alan's claim of Phillip being a victim who was misunderstood. Gus then wonders if Alan can explain Phillip's actions and would Phillip still be alive today if Alan wasn't such a lousy father. Jeffrey tries to object to that, but Gus assures the judge that he is going somewhere with this. He then asks Alan if Phillip was released from Ravenwood because he'd gotten better or to ease the stock holders' fears at Spaulding. Alan maintains that Phillip had gotten better, but Gus presents testimony from employees at the Spaulding mansion that claims that Phillip was irrational and Alan knew it. He then asks Alan if he ever intervened, and Alan admits that there was nithing he could do--Phillip was sick. Gus then tries to make his case by stating that Alan did nothing to help his son, but Alan remembers he did do something: he called Gus after Phillip took the children. Gus suddenly stops the questioning and Jeffrey quickly cross-examines. With Jeffrey's questioning, Alan states that he called Gus hoping he could reason with Phillip. He then testifies that Harley came over that night to confront Phillip and threatened him with a gun. When Jeffrey asks if there were any other witnesses, Alan says there was one--Gus. With the court in near-pandemonium, the judge adjourns for the day. Jeffrey again tries to get Harley to take the deal, telling her she'll be out in a few years and will be able to see her kids grow up somewhat. As Gus and Jeffrey argue about the deal, Gus notices that Harley has left the courtroom. He finds her at home, eerily silent. While he tries to assure her that things didn't go that badly today, Harley turns around and he sees she's been crying. She then admits that it all came together while he was questioning Alan: she remembers killing Phillip.
