At Franco’s hearing, Scotty is called to the stand and tells the court he admitted to faking his condition. His lawyer reminds him he never should have told Scotty he was sane if he didn’t want it to come out – Scotty would never lie under oath. The judge decides the trial should proceed. Franco can’t believe Scotty ratted him out, but Scotty tells him his lawyer is a shark.. he explains how it may be better to stand trial when Franco wasn’t responsible for Heather’s actions.. and he didn’t know Nina stole the baby until he got to Canada, which is out of his jurisdiction. As the DA, he would have to drop the charges! Franco quietly thanks him.
Alexis announces to the judge that Nina faked her craziness.. she tells Nina she has a duty to protect her, and this is the best way. She continues with the judge – Nina was thinking with her heart, not her head and it shouldn’t be held against her. She asks that the original ruling stands. Nina insists she has something to say, and the judge allows her to take the stand. She is just about to claim the baby was hers, when Franco enters and says his charges were dropped. Nina changes her story, and says she deeply regrets her actions.. and the judge says she is free to go. She rushed into Franco’s arms for a big hug!
