At the PCPD, Chase arrives in his softball uniform to see Dante. Dante is glad to have him back, but Chase explains his suspension is still for another 54 days. He’s only there to sign people up for the team. As they chat, Brook Lynn comes up, and Dante realizes Chase has developed feelings for her. Chase asks Dante regardless of his past with her, to give her a chance.

In the interrogation room, Trina is stunned that Spencer just asked her why she did it. He points out there is evidence, but she claims she was set up by Esme. Spencer reminds her that he and Esme left the cabin, and she was drunk and very upset that night. Spencer is in no position to judge, and he wants to believe her. Trina asks, “Then why can’t you?” Trina reminds him that he knows what Esme is capable of. Spencer says he was the instigator and everything she did was because she loved him. Trina says the difference is she would never hurt a person for someone she loved. Spencer reminds her that she lied for him.

Trina argues that doesn’t compare to making a sex tape and posting it. She had faith in him when everyone else didn’t, and realizes he’s still blind to Esme after everything she’s done. Spencer reveals that Esme may be carrying his child. Trina realizes that is why he must see the best in Esme, and the worst in her. Trina says ever since she met him her life has gotten worse, and now she’s arrested because of his girlfriend’s lies. Trina says if he can’t look her in the eyes and believe her, they are done. When he flounders, she angrily orders him out and suggests he go check on Esme. Officer Cabrera (played by Michael Blake Kruse) sees him out.

Curtis and Portia meet Scott at the hospital to talk about Trina’s case. Scott is sorry this happened to Trina, and he’s reviewed the case. Scott believes Trina is innocent and sees many opportunities in the evidence to cast doubt. He plans to have Cam and Joss make statements supporting Trina. Scott notes Trina’s character speaks highly of her, and Portia has an upstanding reputation too. Scott says he sees Cam as his grandson, so he’d never represent someone he thinks would do this to him. Curtis realizes the arraignment is soon. Scott says he’ll see them there and rushes out. Portia breaks down, and Curtis assures her that everything will be okay.

Curtis and Portia arrive in the squad room and the doctor sees Spencer. Portia is furious and can’t believe he’d show his face after what his girlfriend did to her daughter. She tells him that she doesn’t have time to deal with him today. Dante suggests that Spencer get out of there as his presence isn’t helpful.

In the interrogation room, Officer Cabrera hands Trina a cup of water and smiles at her. Trina returns a smile. Portia and Curtis arrive to see her, and Portia explains Scott is going to be her lawyer and he believes in her. They all depart for her arraignment with the judge.
