In court, Diane begins her defense of Carly and summons Griffin to the stand. Outside of the courtroom, Michael insists Nelle return home because this is too stressful for her, and she convinces him to come with her. Back in court, Griffin details Carly coming to him about suffering from hallucinations, which she insisted were real. His tests revealed no brain trauma was causing them, so he referred her to Kevin. Kevin is called to the stand, and explains he put Carly on an anti-anxiety medication, the side effects which could have caused her to lash out and not be in control of her actions. Chase is called to the stand and testifies about Carly reporting a break-in at her house, which he found no evidence of, and finding Carly at her son’s grave after claiming a note from him led her there. Diane asks if Carly seemed emotionally disturbed, which he believes she was. Diane calls Sonny to the stand next. Sonny testifies that he’s been so wrapped up in caring for his ailing father that he didn’t see Carly’s own issues and that she was losing touch with reality. Jason whispers to Carly that if she fires Diane it will lead to a mistrial and that will give him the time he needs to get the proof against Nelle. Diane finds out what Jason is suggesting and warns against it. The trial continues, and Diane calls Jason to the stand. She questions him about the phone calls tormenting Carly, and the mystery of the missing bloody scarf. Diane asks if Carly was hopeful Morgan was still alive, and he admits she was. The DA cross-examines and asks if he believes Carly had been behaving irrationally for weeks. He claims he doesn’t understand what she is asking, so the DA asks if he can swear that Carly was insane when she assaulted Nelle.
