In Jordan’s office, Jordan explains to Trina that they are investigating what happened to Joss and Cam. Trina wants to help find who set her friends up and make them pay.

Trina didn’t even know Spencer and Esme left until hours later because she blacked out. Jordan reminds her she can call a legal advocate or parent, but Trina has nothing to hide.

Jordan reveals the reason she brought Trina in was that someone sent a tip that she was seen looking at the video on her phone weeks before it was released.

Trina insists she’s never seen the other phone and has no idea how it got in her bag.
