Julian drops by Alexis’ place to ask her to be a witness in his trial for the defense. Alexis reminds him that she lost her license once lying for him. Julian only wants her to tell the truth that Olivia was threatening him, and what happened that night on the bridge. She will only consider it if he testifies, and puts him in the hot seat. Alexis questions him about how Olivia got him to do all the horrible things he did. Julian tries to convince her that Olivia would have killed her or Lucas or Lea. Alexis points out nobody can collaborate that, but Julian says there is proof. He hands her the letter he left her in case of his death, which she reads over. He rests his case, and tears roll down her cheeks. She asks why after when he fell from the bridge did he let her think he was dead. He explains he really had planned to leave the country that night, but he had to have one more night with her. Alexis tells Julian if she took the stand for him that she’d be torn apart, but Julian wants to take the chance. There is a knock at the door, and Alexis is served with papers to appear at Julian’s trial for the prosecution.
