Nearby, Diane Miller approaches Brad looking for something he's holding for her. She promises something extra for his troubles. He returns with her item and accepts an envelope of cash. He's close by when Sabrina wonders what's going on between Felix and him. Felix confesses they almost kissed. He promises not to buy into anymore of Brad's lies. She leaves as Brad responds to Felix that they weren't lies. Felix can't return his feelings after Brad conspired with Britt. Later Nikolas finds Brad and thinks it's time for him to man up. Franco's packing in his room when Carly arrives. He anticipates going to jail for the rest of his life as soon as he's released. She's not going to apologize for caring whether he lives or dies after saving his life. Patrick interrupts to examine him. Carly steps out and sees Elizabeth reading the headlines about Connie's shooting. She believes it's typical of AJ and is upset for Michael. Carly thinks they both needed to find out what kind of man AJ is. She rejoins Franco with Patrick. There are no complications and he's free to go. Alone, Carly thinks a jury might believe he's a changed man. Franco stops her from leaving and asks her to go with him to court. She's his only friend and he wants her to give her friend the serial killer a break. She agrees. Outside, a little boy wants to give Patrick a toy car as a thank you gift. He asks the boy to hold onto it. Sabrina overhears the mom hoping he has a son someday.

    AJ arrives at the courthouse happy to see Michael there. Michael plans on sticking by him. AJ would understand if he didn't since he believes he killed Connie even if he doesn't remember it.

She wants him to stop his wallowing. Michael calls Elizabeth and requests her to come to the courthouse to stop AJ from throwing away his life. Privately with AJ, Diane begs him to plead 'not guilty' to allow her to work on a reasonable doubt defense. Later the judge is awaiting a plea when Elizabeth arrives. AJ is hesitant but responds, "Not guilty." After, Elizabeth tells AJ it's not what he thinks when he's thanking her for sticking by him. She can't make any promises. Meanwhile, Diane calls Franco. He's next on the docket. When he arrives, Diane moves that all charges be released and produces a jar with Franco's brain tumor in it as the reason.
