The Judge calls them all into his office and says that he wants to clear up the mess they have been going through for the past months. Carmen is escorted in by a guard and her attorney. The judge tells them that he had read over the transcript of the trial and it was so chocked full of lies and innuendos that he was throwing it out and was going to find the truth himself.
Pilar asks to speak first and Doris gets upset, saying that Pilar has already been found incompetent. The Judge wants to hear her. Pilar tells her story and tells the judge that she is partially to blame. The judge agrees but says there was nothing illegal about her actions. Pilar continued and said that two people shot Ben that night but only her mother wanted him dead. The Judge asks if she was in the room when Vanessa came in. She says that she wasn't. He tells her that he wasn't interested in opinions just the facts. Carmen gets up and tells him she wants to make a confession. She tells him that Pilar was telling the truth. She said that she was set up to think her daughter was being assaulted. She told the judge that she came back later hoping Ben was still alive. She said when she went in the second time she saw Vanessa shoot Ben in cold blood. The judge asked why she didn't come forward sooner. She said she couldn't come forward because no one would have believed as long as Vanessa was in a coma. Vanessa tells the Judge that Carmen is lying and she wants to tell the truth. She tells how she talked to Pilar and then how she went to Ben's room. She told what happened and how she struggled with him until the gun went off.

Ross said that the report acquits Vanessa of the crime. The judge asks if she has seen the report before. She said she hadn't. He looked at Vanessa and told her that he believed her. The judge tells the DA that he expects a motion on his desk in the morning stating that the death of Ben Warren was an accident and another one charging Carmen Santos with perjury, bribery, fraud, attempted murder and what ever else she could think of. He tells Vanessa and Michelle that they were free to go.

Later, Carmen is lying on the floor of her cell with pills all over the floor.

Noah said what they need is another Lizzie, another child of Beth and Phillip.
Rick wants to know why he is worried about the bone marrow now. He feels out of the loop and asks Noah to please keep him updated. Noah tells him that the only good thing about this stage of treatment is that they have the luxury of time. He just wants to be prepared. Rick gets a page and leaves. Harley asks Noah what was wrong. She tells him she knows something is up and wants to know. He tells her he is worried about Lizzie. He says the chemotherapy may not be working.
