At the Church:

Pilar told her that she had to put herself in God's hands and trust in him. She told her that she asked for forgiveness and she received it. Then she started telling Carmen how Ben visits her on occasion and they talk and he has changed. He is very kind and forgiving and he will forgive Carmen too, if she would only ask. Carmen was getting very worried about her spirit seeing daughter and asked her not to mention this to Ray.
Drew is mad at Jesse for caring more for Michelle than her. He denies it and she told him that she knows it's true. She said he cares for Michelle ten times more that her. She didn't understand why he jumped on her about having to tell about Mick's death. She was going to tell all along but he didn't even give her a chance, he just started telling her what she had to do for Michelle. She also doesn't understand why he is so sure Michelle is innocent and Jesse tells her that he knows her. He knows from the bottom of his heart that Michelle is innocent. Drew told him, "you mean from the bottom of Michelle's mother's heart." She says that Michelle and he have a bond much stronger then him and her but again Jesse denies it. He does admit that he feels he owes Michelle and her family but that is not why he believes she innocent.

He blames her for trying to sabotage his family, said a lot of stuff he shouldn't and walked out of the house, slamming the door. Michelle goes after him and apologizes to him. He tells her that he is more any at himself. He said the testimony brought back so many memories about Mick and he hates the part of him that was responsible for what Mick had become. He told Michelle that they were raised to be ruthless and while he was supposed to be the intellect of the family, Mick was supposed to be the brute. He was violent, with drug and alcohol abuse and that was what was expected and he never stopped and told him that he didn't have to be that way. Michelle tells him that if he wants to talk about his brother she will listen. He tells of the Mick he knew and how different he was. The main thing was to Danny that he never got to say he was sorry to Mick for all the things that happened. He apologizes to Michelle and they kissed and made up.

He feels like he won't be a real parent anymore. Olivia tells him that he just has to be there for them and the rest will take care of itself. Olivia wonders if Reva will tell the kids that she and Josh are getting back together but Josh is sure that she wouldn't use the kids as leverage. Josh wants to call Shayne now that he is back from his trip and ask him about dinner sometime this week. Olivia goes into the other room. He calls Shayne and tells him how much he has missed him. Shayne gives Reva the phone and Josh gives Reva his new telephone number. He suggests they all sit down together and work some arrangements out.

At the Courthouse:
The DA wanted to use Mick's murder as motive. She claimed that Michelle killed Ben because he could put her away for that murder at any given time. She claimed that Frank helped bury evidence because Michelle was a close friend of his. The judge questions Frank and then David. David tells him about how Frank let Michelle and Danny be together on Christmas Eve. The Judge denied any more evidence about Mick being brought in as evidence about this case. He also recommended Frank be suspended from the department.
The court reconvenes and Ross tells Michelle what happened. She feels very bad about Frank being in trouble because of her. Ross asks who the DA's last witness will be. He tells her that the prosecution always keeps their strongest witness for last. They look over the witness list but Michelle cant figure out who is could be.

Jesse tells her that no matter what he does, he can't reach a certain part of her. The Rabbi asks to speak to Drew alone and Jesse leaves.

The DA begins questioning Carmen about her daughter-in-law and Carmen really puts on the show. She acts like Michelle is so wonderful and she loves her to death. She tells the jury how much Michelle has helped her since Ben died and how much the family counts on her. She seems to be defending Michelle, saying that any problems they had were petty.
