At Millennium, Bill tells Jesse that he has been called as witness for the defense in Annie's trial. While the two discuss the matter, Matt arrives to question Bill about Vanessa's whereabouts. Bill becomes quite hostile, confronting Matt about his relationship with Beth. Bill says that Vanessa and Maureen are fine and that they want nothing to do with him. Beth, who also happens to be at Millennium, tries to console Matt. She suggests that maybe he look to the Poetry Chat Room on the internet, where he and Vanessa once connected in the past, to find his missing wife.

Why is Beth hanging around Millennium, you ask? She has been brought there by Lizzie and Susan who have cooked up a scheme to get Beth and JIm together on a lunch date. When Jim arrives with Susan and he and Beth realize what the girls are up to, they confront Susan and Lizzie and have a little laugh about their attempts to play cupid. Beth, of course, is not interested in Jim because he is unmarried and available... Meanwhile, in the courtroom, the prosecution calls Josh Lewis to the stand. Josh gives a weak account of his relationship with Annie but manages to stir things up when he admits on the stand that Annie repulses him. Annie falls apart and starts ranting in court about the love that she and Josh once had and how it will never die. Alan looks on with barely contained rage.

Later, Teri Demarco takes the stand and in an quiet but emotional voice recounts her relationship with Annie, complete with the feelings of betrayal she felt when she awoke from her coma to find that Annie had "stolen" her face. When Frank is called to testify, Ben humiliates him on the stand by forcing him to reveal the fact that he and Annie kissed, on several occasions. Eleni, who is in the courtroom, hears this information for the first time and rushes out of the room in tears.
