At home, Will has a nightmare about being arrested for perjury, obstruction of justice. He wakes up and Sonny tells him it was just a dream, not an omen. From now on, Will says no more lies. "I hate secrets." Sonny's smile fades.
In the court room, DA Trask starts opening statements and makes liberal use of the word 'murdered' throughout her statement. Justin's rebuttal consists of him defending Sami's story, saying it's not possible it was invented. Why would she make up these lies if they couldn't be corroborated? Chad is called to the stand and Trask talks about the video Chad recorded of Sami and Bernardi. She plays it. "Nicely done, Mr. Scorsese," she says. Why did he hide it? He knew it'd have made things look bad. Trask learns EJ knew and advised him to leave it alone. Outside, Sonny tries distracting Will so he doesn't implode. Will blames himself for everything but Sonny calls him rather egocentric. Will fantasizes that he is visiting Sami in a few years with Arianna and a beaten down Sami tells him she can't spend the rest of her life like this. Sonny takes the stand later and Trask asks what Chad said when he handed over the attack video. Sonny tells her he warned him about what he was getting himself into. He admits EJ asked him to keep the video from Will but he didn't. Trask brings up Sonny knowing Sami was lying when she said she didn't know the cop before the attack. Justin cross examines Sonny, who says his reasons for not sharing the video was because he knew Sami could never murder someone. Trask questions whether or not Sami has lied to them before. He can't say that... Will goes up. He has difficulty when he has to admit Sami asked him to lie for her. He heads outside and falls into Sonny's awaiting arms, worried he has just sent his mom to jail. Kate is called up.
In the rectory, Eric refuses to lie for Kristen and tell Brady he won't marry them. Even if it'll spare Brady's feelings?

In the square, Nicole goes off her rocker when Brady tells her the idea for a church wedding came from him and Eric encouraged it. Brady calls her the 'president and founder of the Kristen Defamation Committee' and doesn't think she's being much of a friend. Nicole doesn't want to see Kristen hurt him again and thinks he's putting Eric in an impossible position. Brady yells at her to back off and mind her business but she calls Eric her business. Brady is trying to be her friend and calls her out for her obsession with his brother. She should let it go. Hurt, she tells him to 'go to hell' and walks away. He considers her words and calls Eric, but there's no answer.
Cam takes Abby inside the pub where she unloads about her brother's drug dealing ways. She didn't mention it to Chad because she didn't want to stress him out on his way to court.

They laugh over it being ironic that Kristen could bring them closer together.
