[ Jack sighing ]

[ Diane sighing ]

Jack: Sweetheart, you have no idea how good it is to see you.

Diane: Jack, thank god you’re here.

Jack: Are you okay? Is there anything I can get you?

Diane: They took my ring.

Jack: Oh, we’ll get that back, don’t worry about that. Did you sleep at all?

Diane: No, I kept on– I just kept thinking about you. How– how good it would feel to have your arms around me. Take a– take a shower, put on some clean clothes. You know, if I had known I was going to be arrested at phyllis’s memorial, I might have worn something more sensible.

Jack: I cannot imagine how hellish this has been for you.

Diane: Well, my secret is I’m just pretending it’s not happening. I keep telling myself that they’ve made a mistake and that they’ll realize I’m not a murderer and then they’ll just let me go.

Jack: As much as I want to believe that, I’m afraid it’s time to face some difficult truths.

Kyle: I woke up around three. Where’d you go? Still couldn’t sleep?

Summer: I went to check on harrison. His room is so peaceful, you know. I crawled into bed with him and before I knew it, I was out.

Kyle: Good. You needed it.

Summer: What about you? Part of the reason I left was so that I wouldn’t keep you up.

Kyle: Oh, uh, for a while, I was in that hazy place. Not quite asleep, but not awake. And the rest of the night, I was going down rabbit holes online and torn between giving you your space and checking to see if you were okay.

Summer: How could I be okay? I just keep replaying my mom’s last moments. I mean, she was lucid enough to say poison. Was she lucid enough to be afraid, to feel pain? And did she think about me or daniel?

Kyle: Summer, don’t–

Summer: What were you– what were you researching online?

Kyle: I was looking up names of criminal defense lawyers because today’s my mom’s arraignment. And we still don’t know if michael baldwin’s gonna be our guy.

Summer: Don’t you think it’s a little heartless or, I don’t know, perverse asking him to defend diane in my mom’s murder?

Noah: Summer?

Summer: Noah. Oh, my god.

[ Summer sniffling ]

Chance: You filed the criminal complaint against diane?

Christine: Bright and early?

Chance: All right. What do you need from me?

Christine: Talk me through the evidence.

Chance: Okay. Well, there is phyllis’s toxicology report and that proves there was poison in her blood. There’s a vial of poison that I found in her room and I have evidence that links diane to the purchase of that poison. Of course, there are witnesses to a threat that night, as well as a very long history of antagonistic behavior.

Christine: I just don’t want any surprises at the arraignment.

Chance: I can’t promise you that. We’re dealing with a lot of people who haven’t shown any kind of respect for the legal system.

Christine: Yeah. I talked to jack.

Chance: Oh, yeah. What’s his game plan?

Christine: They’re gonna plead not guilty and ask for bail.

Chance: I mean, any judge would have to deny that.

Christine: Yeah. With her history, his money, forget it. Flight risk.

Chance: I hope the judge sees it that way. Who did they get for a lawyer?

Christine: As far as I know, that job’s still open.

Nikki: Well, if it isn’t the man who restored my faith in attorneys.

Michael: What could I possibly have done to be worthy of that compliment?

Nikki: Ah, it’s what you didn’t do. Now, I know you have a soft spot for diane and I will never understand why, but the way you refused to rush to her rescue at phyllis’s memorial, trust me, we all got the message, loud and clear. If the best attorney in genoa city thinks she’s guilty and won’t go near her with a 10-foot pole, well…

Michael: Well, yeah. Well, have a seat, please. Nikki, our constitution assures all citizens are innocent until proven otherwise, even the ones who don’t measure up or haven’t earned your seal of approval.

Nikki: According to the constitution, yes. But the founding fathers never met diane. We know what she’s capable of. She’s dangerous and now phyllis is dead.

Michael: Correlation doesn’t equate causation.

Nikki: Your clever tone has me a little worried. Please tell me I don’t need to be.

Michael: Last night, I got a call from jack asking me to represent diane.

Nikki: Oh, my god. That is outrageous. Michael, you can’t defend the woman who killed one of your best friends. I used to pre-rinse dishes cause my old detergent

Noah: I’m so sorry that I wasn’t here.

Allie: We flew back from london as soon as we could.

Summer: Well, you’re here now and that’s all that matters.

Noah: It just– it doesn’t make sense to me. I mean, phyllis and then diane got arrested.

Summer: Yeah, she was charged with murder. They found poison in my mom’s system and they tied it back to diane.

Allie: I thought this was all an accident, right? Wasn’t there an ambulance?

Summer: No, it was murder. My mom was poisoned. It was a premeditated act at the G.C.A.C. It wasn’t some accident on a dark road.

Allie: It just– it’s so hard to believe.

Kyle: It is. There are certain things we don’t know for sure.

Summer: All of the evidence is pointing at diane. I– I– I don’t know why you would doubt it.

Allie: Murderer? I don’t know. She was so happy here with you guys, jack, harrison. Maybe there’s, um, another option that we’ve overlooked.

Kyle: That’s what I’ve been saying.

Summer: Under the right circumstances, everyone is capable of murder.

Diane: It’s so good to see your face.

Jack: I hate seeing you like this. I want to grab you and take you out of this place.

Diane: I want that too. But the arraignment’s still today, right?

Jack: Yes, but–

Diane: So, I’ll get in front of a judge, I’ll tell them I’m not guilty. They’ll set bail and I’ll get to leave.

Jack: Let’s talk about the bail.

[ Diane sighing ]

Diane: Yeah. And given my unfortunate history of disappearing, there’s– there’s the probability that I’ll be denied bail. Which means that I am stuck here until the trial begins.

Jack: No, wait, wait, don’t get ahead of yourself. Let’s take this one step at a time. Let’s talk facts.

Diane: Yeah, fact is, I don’t even have a lawyer. And– and christine is the D.A., Which means that we need someone who’s not intimidated by her. Some– some heavy hitter who just loves fighting for the underdog.

Jack: I have spoken to michael again.

Diane: No, he has already turned me down.

Jack: He’s the right man for the job. I will convince him to take your case.

Diane: Jack, I know that when you look at me, you see the woman you love, whom you believe, but when he looks at me, he sees his best friend’s nemesis. And lauren would never forgive him if he defended me. She loved phyllis. They both did.

Jack: That doesn’t matter.

Diane: Well, it matters to me. I want someone who doesn’t know about my past. Who has– who has no relationship with you. Some– someone who’s just in it for the money because everybody else wants me dead. Everybody but you and kyle. I mean, I might as well admit it, you know. Everything is stacked against me and I don’t have a chance in hell.

Jack: You have me and we will get you through this, together.

Nikki: And, you can’t take diane on as a client. You work for victor.

Jack: If a worthwhile case finds its way to my desk, I am free to do as I choose.

Nikki: The operative word there being worthwhile.

Michael: Do you really, nikki, believe that diane is a murderer?

Nikki: Yes, I do. She has despised phyllis for decades and that kind of hatred doesn’t just disappear. That’s motive. And there were witnesses, including jack that saw her threaten phyllis that night. My god, michael. I mean, I know you’re an attorney, but don’t you have any common decency?

Michael: You are cherry-picking facts to suit your narrative.

Nikki: That’s because my narrative is the right one.

Victor: What, pray tell, is this all about?

Kyle: It’s definitely one of the more complicated and stressful situations we’ve been through, but the guilty party still hasn’t been arrested. So, once stark is in a cell–

Summer: Look, I know that it hurts, kyle. You don’t want to believe that your mom could be so evil, but all of the evidence is pointing squarely at diane and the sooner you accept that, the less painful it’s gonna be.

Kyle: Good thing you’re not the judge and jury.

Summer: No, but I’m probably gonna be a witness and I’ll be sure to tell them that I heard your mom threaten to murder my mom.

Allie: You know that– that’s a lot, summer. I know how hard it is to lose a parent. I lost my dad last year and it was so incredibly painful.

Summer: I’m really sorry for your loss, allie, but I imagine it was under very different circumstances.

Noah: Hey, you know, I’m– I’m feeling a little stir crazy.

Allie: Yeah, it was such a long flight.

Noah: Yeah, yeah, it was. You know, summer, I could probably catch a second wind if you want to get out of here. Maybe grab something to eat.

Summer: I don’t know.

Noah: Come on. It’s been a long time since I’ve had some one on one with my sister. You don’t mind, do you, kyle?

Kyle: No, it’s a good idea. I’m still waiting to find out if my dad was able to retain michael baldwin for my mom’s attorney.

Summer: Seriously, still? Michael baldwin?

Noah: Hey, what do you say?

Summer: Get me out of here, now.

Kyle: Bet you’re glad you came home from your vacation early.

Allie: Oh, kyle, I’m so sorry.

Kyle: The two women I love the most in this universe cannot exist together. What am I supposed to do?

Jack: I know you don’t want to get your hopes up, but right after this, I am meeting with michael and I am not going to give up until I get him to take your case.

Diane: He won’t do it out of respect for phyllis and his wife. And I get that. And we need to respect his choices, agreed?

Jack: You’re ready to have have a stranger be in charge of your life?

Diane: No, I just want to come home, jack. I mean, this– this feels like a nightmare, but it’s my life. I mean, one minute the man of my dreams is announcing our engagement, and the next, I’m in a jail cell framed for murder, facing the rest of my life in prison.

Jack: I promise you, we will get you through this.

Diane: I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe not this time. I mean, I already– I already fought myself back from total disgrace. I tried to rebuild my life. I tried to earn the forgiveness of everybody that I care about.

[ Diane sighing ] I mean, I– I actually thought that you and I could have a life together, a future together. And I– I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Jack: Don’t say that, that’s not true.

Diane: You know, you and i were so proud that we had pulled one over on jeremy and so he did this. And now he’s got the last laugh.

Jack: We will prove that he is the guilty party.

Diane: Yeah, but what if we can’t? I mean, that’s how he operates. Somebody else always takes the fall and this time it’s me.

Jack: Do you trust me?

[ Diane exhaling ]

Diane: Of course I do.

Jack: There is nothing in the world I wouldn’t do for you and I will not let you pay for a crime you didn’t commit.

[ Clicking ]

Diane: That means our visit’s over.

Jack: Okay. I– I’ll see you at the arraignment. Be strong, have faith, and know that every moment that passes, I am working to get you back home.

Christine: Even though we have very strong evidence against diane, I think we need to leave all of our avenues open. I wouldn’t want the other side accusing us of confirmation bias.

Chance: Yeah. Well, jack and kyle are convinced that stark killed phyllis so he could frame diane for it, so I’m looking into that.

Christine: Okay, and show me how that all connects, you know? Who and why, who benefits, what would stark’s motive be for murder?

Chance: Money? You know, he’s getting half of phyllis’s estate. I mean, that’s a hell of a payout for a couple days of wedded bliss, you know.

Christine: A vibrant, beautiful woman with friends and family marries a criminal with whom she has no romantic relationship. Not even a friendship that we know of? Why?

Chance: Well, stark said it was for protection. Yeah, phyllis was scared of diane, but knew that diane was scared of stark. So, she married him.

Christine: And I don’t buy that. Phyllis wasn’t afraid of anyone. Why would she fear diane and not stark? He was the one who was unpredictable and dangerous. Diane was just a major annoyance, not someone that would make her run for cover. Not the phyllis summers I knew.

Chance: Yeah, I didn’t buy that either. She wouldn’t run from anyone.

Christine: Could retribution be a motive?

Chance: Yeah, that is possible. I mean, you should have seen stark when he found out jack and diane framed him for stealing that necklace.

Christine: Yeah, but there was never any actual proof of that.

Chance: It didn’t matter. I mean, a guy like stark, he finds out that somebody’s trying to mess with him? Getting revenge becomes an obsession.

Christine: Okay. Show me what that would look like.

Chance: Well, he marries phyllis for the money, kills her, frames diane for the murder. He gets beaucoup bucks and he gets to watch diane go to prison.

Christine: Pay back with a little bit of payout.

Chance: Two birds, one stone.

Christine: Hm.

Nikki: Michael is about to defend the indefensible, diane.

Victor: Why in the world would you do that?

Michael: The truth is, I haven’t really–

Victor: Wait a minute. Am i not keeping you busy enough?

Michael: I enjoy my job very much.

Victor: Good.

Michael: Just as I was enjoying my coffee until a few minutes ago. Oh, well, would you look at that, my morning meeting. Nikki, thank you for the enlightening conversation. Quite edifying, but I’m sure you have a full day ahead of you.

Victor: Now jack, don’t keep him too long, all right? He’s on my payroll, okay?

Nikki: Jack.

Michael: Can I get you anything? Have you even eaten?

Jack: No appetite.

Michael: Have you seen diane?

Jack: I just left her.

Michael: How’s she holding up?

Jack: Not well. We still don’t have an attorney and I know you don’t want to hear this, but her future is in your hands. Known as a passionate artist.

Christine: Without having strong evidence tying stark to this crime, all we have are interesting theories.

[ Chance sighing ]

Chance: You want me to have another conversation with him? Bring him into the station?

Christine: Would it do any good?

Chance: He’s pretty tight-lipped. He knows how to talk to police. He’ll probably just find a way to wiggle free.

Christine: It’s worth a try. Is he still in town?

Chance: Yeah, as far as I know. I’m tracking his finances, so if he moves any cash or makes any kind of big purchase, I’ll know.

Christine: Smart. Oh, god. I mean, what are we missing? A woman like phyllis marries a criminal and then willingly gives over half her money.

Chance: Maybe he had something on her, had something she wanted. I don’t know. All I know is that I’m not getting the whole… one second. Chancellor. Yeah, what you got? Yes, that was the plan. Today? Ugh. All right. Well, then we need more boots on the ground asap. Yeah, hey, let me call you back.

Christine: That about stark?

Chance: He checked out of the graham phoenix, right after the distribution of phyllis’s assets into his account.

Christine: You’ve got to be kidding?

Chance: It gets worse. No one knows where the hell he is.

[ Christine sighing ]

Kyle: It all comes back to stark. He concocted this entire thing to get back at my mom.

Allie: Because of their time in california?

Kyle: Yeah, she turns on him for laundering money. He does time in a federal prison. While he’s away, she gives up that way of life. Comes back to genoa city. He gets released and follows her here fixated on one goal, to make my mom pay.

Allie: Okay. Yeah, I mean, that all makes sense.

Kyle: Yeah. My parents do everything they can think of to try to get him to leave town, but stark won’t go. They finally find a solution. Make it look like he’s returned to his criminal ways. They tip off the cops. Cops catch stark red-handed. Just like that, he’s back in jail.

Allie: But he’s out again?

Kyle: With an axe to grind. He needed to send my mother a message, so he took advantage of the already volatile situation. The deadly feud between phyllis and my mother.

Allie: So he killed phyllis and made it look like diane did it.

Kyle: That’s what I think.

Allie: Why not just kill diane? Now that I say that out loud, it sounds even worse than it was in my head.

Kyle: It’s okay. I’ve already thought about that. I think he thinks it’s more fun to watch my mom suffer. Phyllis was just collateral damage.

Allie: That sounds so dark. But given who jeremy stark is, I guess it’s feasible. Summer’s not buying it at all?

Kyle: No. She’s grieving her mother and she thinks my mother is to blame, so there’s no convincing her. Not much communication lately.

Allie: I am so sorry that you guys are going through this.

Kyle: The only way out is to prove my mother’s innocent and she doesn’t even have an attorney yet.

Michael: As much as I’ve come to believe that diane is being framed by jeremy stark.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, you cannot know how happy I am to hear you say those words.

Michael: But– but, there is no easy way to say this, I can’t take diane’s case.

Jack: Okay. Can– can we discuss why?

Michael: Two words. Phyllis, lauren. She was my best friend, our friend, she was your friend too and now you’re asking me to help the woman that–

Jack: You just said yourself, diane has been framed. She is defenseless, counselor. Against murder charges.

Michael: Phyllis’s spirit would haunt me until the day I die if I help diane. And lauren would be worse. All right, look, I– I need time–

Jack: Diane’s arraignment is in one hour.

Michael: So am i your last resort?

Jack: You are the only game in town as far as we’re concerned.

Nikki: Victor, you’re staring.

Victor: I want him to see me watching him.

Nikki: Do you really think he’s going to take the case?

Victor: He’s a smart man. I think he’ll do the right thing.

Michael: You do realize I work for victor?

Jack: I will do my very best not to hold that against you. Michael, I am the first person to say diane has made mistakes. That was a lifetime ago. You’ve seen yourself, she has changed. Look, she’s reunited with kyle. She has a wonderful relationship with harrison. She and I are about to plan a wedding. Why would she jeopardize all of that just to get back at an old foe? It makes no sense. And the more you dig, michael, the more this makes no sense at all. She is being punished by that son of a bitch, stark. Now, can you honestly stand by and watch her take her chances with just any lawyer? And keep this in mind, if she goes to prison, the actual killer is still on the streets, newly emboldened because he thinks he can get away with murder. I need your help, michael, please. Diane needs you. Imagine if you could get ahead of your ibs-C…

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Michael: Jack, it’s an interesting case, but I know once you find the right attorney–

Jack: I have found the right attorney. You know all the stories, all the history, all the players. I’m looking at the best. Without you, we are lost.

Sharon: Noah.

Noah: I know, I didn’t call, I’m sorry.

Sharon: Oh, my goodness. I’m so glad you’re here.

[ Sharon sighing ] Is there anything I can do?

Noah: Maybe just a quiet table for two. Couple of iced coffees.

Sharon: You got it.

Noah: Thanks.

Chance: Well.

Sharon: I, uh, I wish I had something to fix her broken heart. You know, phyllis really was a good mother and she was particularly close with summer. This is gonna be really hard on the kids.

Chance: Well, at least she has her brothers.

Noah: Dad told me about that service you put together for her. I’m sure she’d be proud of you.

Summer: Just reminded me that we really need to love the people in our lives while they’re still here. Tell them how much they mean to us and that we appreciate them because I mean, she was so loved, more than she knew, probably. I just wish that she could tell me that she forgives me, but I’m never gonna get that. I’m just gonna have to miss her like this for the rest of my life.

Victor: Hello, michael.

Nikki: I can only imagine the kind of nonsense jack was trying to feed you.

Victor: Well now, michael is a very smart man and I’m sure he would do the right thing. Right, michael?

Michael: I probably will.

Victor: You know, otherwise, you’d have to ask for a leave of absence and then I would have to approve it and then I might be inclined to fire you.

Michael: We wouldn’t want that.

Victor: We wouldn’t, would we?

Nikki: That’s what I love about you, michael. You always manage to do the right thing.

Michael: Your faith in my decency is humbling. I’ll do my best to live up to it. Have a good meal.

Victor: Have a good day, michael.

Kyle: Has michael agreed to take the case?

Jack: No, we are back to square one.

Kyle: Well, if it’s any consolation, allie’s here.

Allie: Hey, jack.

Jack: Hey, it’s great to hear your voice, sweetheart. Did you come home early?

Allie: Being at home right now is way more important.

Jack: Let me get back to you. I– I think I’m about to get some news.

Kyle: Okay, good luck.

Jack: Thanks. So, did you find us a defense attorney?

Michael: Yeah, about that. We need to talk. So, you found the no7 then…

Nikki: Your father just left. I don’t know. He said he had an errand to run. I know, victoria. I’m worried about that too. Look, I’ll be at the office soon. I will fill you in later. Okay.

Milton: Captivating. Simply captivating.

Nikki: Hello, milton. It’s been a while. How are things in accounting?

Milton: Everything is adding up. That was–

Nikki: An accounting joke. Yeah, I get it. And how’s your wife? Uh, sarah is it?

Milton: Excellent memory. We’re divorced.

Nikki: Oh, I– I’m sorry to hear that.

Milton: Don’t be. Turns out she hated my accounting jokes. But that does mean, if there was ever a chance for us, nikki, this is it.

Nikki: Now, milton, as I have told you before, it’s– it’s just not going to happen. And you can’t really talk like that anymore.

Milton: Because victor would squash me like a bug.

Nikki: There’s that, but that kind of direct proposition, it– no matter even if it is in jest, some people would be uncomfortable with that. Like when you wanted me to live with you on that tropical island.

Milton: That. Yes, I can see how wrong that would be. What we should do is buy matching motorcycles and travel across the country, playing guitars around a campfire and looking up at the stars.

Nikki: Oh. Oh, milton. Milton, darling, I don’t play guitar.

Milton: Nikki newman, you are a golden goddess.

Noah: Listen, I wish I could have been here. I wish I could have said goodbye.

Summer: I do too.

Noah: Why did you have to go and have the memorial service so fast?

Summer: I’m sorry. Noah, I’m sorry, but you got to understand that there– there– there are reasons why I had to do it the way that I did it and I– I can’t explain it all now, but it’s just– look, I promise you, you and I will do something really special to honor my mom’s memory, okay? It’s just been– trying to balance my grief over losing mom in such a horrific way with kyle’s refusal to acknowledge diane’s guilt.

Noah: Summer, summer, summer, we don’t know that for certain. Look, I– I can’t lie. I’m– I’m worried about you, okay?

Summer: I’m fine. I’m keeping busy. There is just so much that I need to do and today is just one step, but it– it– it’s an important one.

Noah: Diane’s arraignment?

Summer: Yeah. And so, um, I actually need to get going and I’m– I’m sorry to do this, but I’ll be in touch, okay? And I love you so much and I’m so glad that you’re home.

Noah: Love you too.

[ Noah sighing ]

Kyle: Uh, sorry to interrupt, sharon. Uh, summer?

Sharon: She was out on the patio, but–

Kyle: Thanks.

Noah: Yeah, I’m about to head back now. Yeah, I’ll grab you some food. Love you too.

Kyle: Where’s summer?

Noah: She just took off.

Kyle: Yeah, I tried calling, but she wouldn’t pick up.

Noah: Yeah, well, she’s got a lot on her mind right now, man.

Kyle: We both do, but we’ll get through it.

Noah: You as confident as you sound? Because I doubt it’ll be that easy?

Kyle: Of course, it’s not, but once we prove my mother’s innocent–

Noah: Then what? What, summer will just have to face facts? How exactly does that work, kyle? Because even if you have evidence, even if you can prove that stark is responsible, summer is gonna be miles away from okay. Because whether you like it or not, stark’s intentions in killing phyllis come down to the same damn thing and that’s diane, she’s the trigger. Summer’s not gonna forget that.

Diane: Michael. Are you here to see a client?

Michael: Please sit. Yes, I am indeed here to see a client. You.

Diane: Thank you.

Michael: Don’t celebrate. Don’t– don’t, please don’t celebrate quite yet. I just lost my best friend a few days ago. She was funny and fierce and I will miss her forever. And so will my wife who adored her.

Diane: I know.

Michael: You have no idea.

[ Michael sighing ] I didn’t take this case lightly, diane. You deserve a vigorous defense and I intend to give you one, but we don’t have much time. We have less time than I even thought. We have a lot of work to do. But I require– I require one thing of you.

Diane: Tell me what it is.

Michael: The truth, at all times.

Diane: You have my word, michael. Thank you so much for taking my case. I don’t know what– what made you change your mind, but I am so grateful that you did. I feel like I might have a fighting chance. I might actually go home. I’ve been telling everyone.

Chance: I mean, would it kill them to call me and tell me what the judge decided?

Sharon: I’m sure you’ll hear from christine soon. And then once you do, will you start to look into stark’s connection?

Chance: Yeah. Yeah, there’s definitely something going on there. I mean, he just disappeared. His wife’s murderer hasn’t even gone to trial yet and he disappears. I mean, he’s risking a parole violation by taking off. Why would he risk going back to jail right now? I mean, he’s gotta be running from something or to something or to someone. Sorry, if I’m boring you, I’m just thinking out loud right now.

Sharon: It’s fascinating.

Chance: Oh, come on. I’m sure ray used to go on and on about work, no?

Sharon: Hardly. Really, you’ve told me a lot more than he ever did.

Chane: Mmm. Well, I usually don’t talk about work with anybody. Never did with abby.

Sharon: Well, I’m a vault so you don’t have to worry. If you were worried that I might be serving up gcpd secrets along with my croissants.

Chance: No, I, uh, I trust you. It’s weird. Not like a– a bad weird.

Sharon: Like, weird, weird?

Chance: It’s a nice weird. You know, you’re a good listener and you’re objective.

Sharon: Thank you. I also make a pretty good cup of coffee.

[ Chance laughing ] You know, there was a time when most people wouldn’t have thought there was anything decent about me.

Chance: Oh, were you a, uh, a troublemaker?

Sharon: Now, I’m a brownie baker.

[ Both laughing ] It can happen.

Chance: You are a lot more than that, sharon, a lot more.

Michael: You know, we discussed this possibility when we went in for diane’s arraignment.

Jack: No bail. She is a danger to no one, michael.

Michael: Well, the judge agreed with christine that she was a flight risk. And we knew that bail of any amount was a long shot.

Kyle: Okay, how can we get this appealed?

Michael: That’s not gonna happen. You know what? What we have to focus on is my specialty, building a strong defense.

Kyle: Yeah, proving stark engineered this whole thing. How can we get the police or the da to investigate?

Jack: We do whatever we have to, we hire our own people. We do whatever is necessary to clear diane’s name and bring her home.

Diane: Summer. I didn’t see you at the arraignment.

Summer: I’d like to think that this is exactly where my mom would want me to be.

Diane: Well, I’m glad you’re here.

Summer: Really? I’m not sure that you should be. I’m not here because of me. I’m here for you. ‘Cause you’re probably terrified, aren’t you? You don’t know what’s gonna happen next. So, I’m gonna tell you what’s gonna happen next. You’re stuck here. You’ll be found guilty of killing my mother and you’ll spend your days imagining all of the family celebrations that you’ll miss. And the wedding that you’ll never get to plan. The grandchildren you’ll never hold again and all the pictures that you won’t be in and don’t worry about kyle, diane. He’s lived most of his life without you, remember? We’re all gonna be fine. We’ll move on, but you’re gonna be stuck behind four gray walls, tortured by thoughts of a world that doesn’t want you. And then… then, you will get exactly what you deserve for ripping my mother out of all of our lives.
