Skye hangs around outside of the courtroom in case Ric calls her back to the stand to testify against Jason. Sonny shows up and asks her what she is doing there.

Sonny tells her he doesn't like to be threatened and reminds her that Jason wouldn't be in the situation he is in if they were able to kill Alcazar when they wanted to. He reminds her that she begged them to let Alcazar live until she got her baby back. Skye tells him that she doesn't like to be threatened anymore than he does and plans to testify that she didn't see Jason kill Alcazar. Meanwhile, in the courtroom Ric asks the judge if he can replay the tape of Alcazar saying Jason's last name and the sound of what seems like a silencer going off and a sound of someone dropping to the floor. The judge allows it but warns Ric to move on with his questioning. They replay the tape. Later, Ric questions Amelia on the stand about the incident when some men associated with Alcazar came into the television studio and shot at Sam, Jason, and herself. She tells the jury that Jason saved her life twice. Ric questions Amelia about her objectivity concerning Jason which makes Diane, Jason's lawyer laugh in disbelief while she is objecting since it looks like Ric is interrogating his own witness. Amelia tells the court what happened that day. Amelia's testimony unfortunately makes Jason look even more like a hitman. Later, Skye gets on the stand again to testify about Alcazar's lifestyle. Skye is very calm and tells the court that Alcazar never told her about his business and would leave town without telling her where he was going and what he was doing. Diane cross-examines her and asks her if it would be normal for him to disappear and not tell her like the night in question. Skye tells her that she wouldn't be surprised. Diane also asks her about an incident in the past when Alcazar hired a woman to look like Sonny's late wife during a vulnerable time in his life so it would drive him crazy on purpose. Skye admits that it happened. Ric objects to Diane's questioning stating that it is irrelevant to the case. The judge overrules Ric and allows it. Diane paints a picture of Alcazar as being someone who isn't above underhanded tactics to get revenge on his enemies. Diane asks Skye if it is possible that Alcazar would be capable of going so far as to say Jason's last name and shoot a gun off with a silencer and fall to the floor while recording it to make it look like Jason killed him. Skye tells her it is very possible. Ric plans to redirect his questioning of Skye. He asks her about that night again and insinuates that she may have been involved with Alcazar's murder. Skye vehemently denies having anything to do with Alcazar's death. Ric apologizes for accusing her but is pleased that he got a heated response from her and got her to admit that it was possible that Alcazar was murdered. Meanwhile, Carly is in disbelief when she hears Alcazar's voice over the phone while the banker is there. She plays along with Jerry's plan and talks to "Alcazar" over the phone about a money transfer. The banker believes that Alcazar is alive and agrees to the money transfer. After the banker leaves, Carly throws something at Jerry and accuses him of conspiring with Alcazar while Jason is back home on trial for murder. Jerry explains to her that Alcazar is dead and as far as he is concerned Jason killed him. He tells her that he has been working with some of Alcazar's associates and that the voice over the phone is one of his collaborators who is able to do impressions of people's voices. Carly suggests that the man should call Ric over the phone and pretend to be Alcazar so that Ric will think Alcazar is alive and they will have reasonable doubt for Jason to be exonerated. Jerry explains that they can't do that because the man's voice will not withstand under any scrutiny like voice analysis. Carly asks Jerry what they need to do now. Jerry tells her they need to go to Alcazar's compound. Back in the courtroom, Ric calls an unknown man to the stand. The man testifies in court that he works as a gardener in the neighborhood where Alcazar lived. He surprises everyone in court including Jason when he claims he saw Jason outside Alcazar's home and that he was putting a body inside a dark SUV.
Diane does her best to discredit Ric's "eyewitness," who claims he saw Jason putting Alcazar's dead body in the back of an SUV.
