Star Witness: Dead! image

Inside the motel room, Janet checks to make sure Talia has a pulse, which she does, then leaves the room, not wanting to wait around for someone to 'take her out'! As Talia's phone rings, from the courtroom, Antonio wonders why she isn't picking up the phone! Later, Antonio breaks into the room, wakes Talia up then calls in Janet's escape!

On the witness stand, as Starr says "I asked him to tell me the truth about weather or not he was planning to kidnap my baby," Nora wants to know what Todd's response was - and Starr replies, "No," and Cole stands up screaming, "Why are you lying!" After John calms Cole down, Nora reminds Starr of her initial testimony, threatens her with perjury, then listens as Starr describes asking her dad if he planned to steal her baby. Starr thinks about everyone who her testimony would hurt then swears that Todd said that he wasn't going to steal her baby! Though Nora reads Starr's official statement to her, Starr sticks to her guns and says, "He didn't want to kidnap my baby. I said before that he did, but I was lying." Starr makes up a reason for her lies then Nora reluctantly tells the judge that she doesn't have any more questions for her witness - and Todd whispers to Tea, wanting to know if she did something to Starr!

After Tea declines to question Starr, Nora wants Janet called to the stand and informs the judge that she's in protective custody and will be there in a half an hour. Once a recess is called, Starr apologizes to Cole then storms off. While Todd demands that Tea tell him what she did to her daughter, Nora calls Antonio - and finds out that Janet escaped! Nora warns Antonio to find her before Todd 'walks' - again! After everyone hears the news, Tea smiles, and Todd tries to talk to Marty, who runs off, leaving Blair snapping at Todd! "Starr's not going to pay for anything I did!" Todd promises everyone.

When Cole hears about Janet's escape, he walks out of the courtroom, confronts Schuyler, who is holding his mother's letter, then rushes off after reminding him that his mother helped kill his baby! Though Schuyler gets a call and asks the caller, "What do you want?" he promises he'll be right there and leaves.

Michael surprises Marcie when he shows up at the cemetery while she visiting Hope. He admits that although he wasn't onboard, at first, to help raise Hope, he frequents her grave regularly. Over talk of Todd, Marcie worries that he'll get away with murder. "It's Todd," Marcie says. "He always does, right?" Brody tries to calm Wes and asks, "What are you going to do?" but Wes thanks Brody for lending him an ear then leaves. Alone, Brody thinks about Jessica.

Later, Starr goes to her daughter's grave and cries, "Hope, I am so sorry! He's my father… and I needed to protect him. I just wish I could have protected you too." Little does Starr know, Cole is watching her from the cemetery gate.

Holding the newspaper in his hand, Wes goes to check in on Brody. After Brody talks about Jessica's release, and how much he misses her, Wes opens up, shows Brody the newspaper then says, "The witch who ruined my family." Wes explains how his father dumped his mother - and him - for Janet and took everything his father had! Though Wes has no idea where his father is now, he grabs the paper and says, "Now she's right here in Llanview - and so am I!"

When Viki and Clint arrive home with Jessica, she goes to her baby, held by Jared, then asks where Bree is. "We're right here," Natalie says, entering the room. Bree is standoffish, and though Jessica tries to bond with Chloe, Natalie reminds Jessica of how she tried to kill her and Jared! As Charlie changes the subject, Jessica tries to approach Bree, but she holds on tight to Aunt Natalie's leg - and refuses to spend time with her mother!

Natalie and Jared take the kids away for a nap, and Jessica cries about how afraid Bree is of her - and how Natalie probably wants her dead! Though Viki assures Jessica that Natalie doesn't want her dead, Jess replies, "Well, she should. That's what I wanted to happen to her." Viki thinks she was brave to admit her feelings, but Jessica now has to live with them - and wonders why Charlie doesn't hate her. Charlie comforts her and tells Jessica that things will get better - one day at a time. When Natalie comes back in throwing barbs, Viki tries to take Natalie away, but Jessica wants to talk to her! "Don't worry," Natalie tells her parents. "We're not going to kill each other. We're sisters!"

Jessica tries to talk to Natalie, but Natalie can't forgot the basement - and goes over everything that she did when she was Tess then says, "I am not letting bygones be bygones just yet!" Jessica prays Natalie will one day forgive her, but Natalie says, "So what! You - Jessica - wanted me and Jared to die! I think you still do! I don't want you anywhere near those girls!" Though Jessica screams, "I am their mother!" Natalie replies, "You are not good enough! I'm a hell of a lot better qualified to raise those girls right now." Jessica reminds Natalie that she has no rights to her children, and believes that she's integrated, but Natalie refuses to move out - or on with her life - and plans to protect the girls! Just as Natalie accuses Jessica of almost killing her girls, Viki rejoins them and snaps, "Natalie, you stop that right now!" Jessica assures Viki that she and Natalie had to get everything out in the open then heads upstairs with Viki.

When Jared comes in to see how Natalie is, Natalie rants about her conversation with Jessica - and Jared thinks everything that Natalie said was right!
