Inside, little Ethan is brought into the courtroom, and he screams for his mother and runs straight into Theresa's arms. The judge isn't convinced as he asks Woody Stumper why he should give custody to a convicted murderer with no home and no job. Theresa tells Fox she's not going to get her son back, ever.
