At Wyndemere, Spencer tells Esme if she wants to know who her birth mother is then she’ll make sure the judge knows Trina is innocent. He says they both know she recorded and distributed that revenge porn.

Spencer confronts Esme tape GH

Spencer notes her torching Ava’s car, and leaving Kiki’s badge at the scene, showed him how cruel she is. He also recalls how she couldn’t wait to show the video of Joss and Cam to him and insisted it was Trina who made it. He realized everything Cam and Joss warned him about her was true.

Esme can’t believe after all she’s done for him that this is how he repays her. She reminds him that they left that cabin together, so she couldn’t have planted that phone. Spencer recalls the events of that night and how she insisted Cam and Spencer take the master bedroom, and when they returned from skiing she was nowhere to be found. He guesses that’s when she set up the phone in the bedroom.

Esme denies accusations GH

Spencer continues that when they got back to town he forgot something at the cabin, and she went back to get it for him. That’s when she likely retrieved the phone. She asks him how she could have predicted Trina wouldn’t handle her booze, is she psychic? He responds, “Not psychic, psycho.” He accuses her of spiking Trina’s hot toddy with the pills he found in the closet, which Britt identified for him.

Spencer is certain that if Esme could frame Trina without implicating herself, she can free Trina without incriminating herself as well. He informs her this is a limited-time offer, so she has a decision to make. Esme snarks if it comes to choosing her mother over hurting him, don’t be so sure what she’ll choose. Esme storms out.

In the foyer, Esme paces and appears to be falling apart.

On the stand, the ADA asks Joss if she won’t concede that Trina could have set up the phone in her bedroom. Diane objects on grounds of conjecture, so the ADA has no more questions.

Joss takes the stand GH

Diane cross-examines Joss and asks how she knows Trina couldn’t do this. Joss cries she’s known Trina since middle school and she is her best friend in the world. Joss knows Trina could never do this to her, and wouldn’t even know how to get a black-market phone. Diane asks how she knows it was a black-market phone? Joss doesn’t but explains the second phone that was found in Trina’s bag that was identical to Trina’s. She believes she knows who did this, and names, Esme Prince.

Diane questions Joss GH

Joss details to the court Esme and Spencer’s stalking of Ava, and that she has the demented type of mind that could make revenge porn. The ADA objects on grounds of speculation. Diane asks Joss about her GPA at college, and Joss answers she has a 4.0. Diane asks who her dormmate was for her first year, and Joss says it was Trina. Diane asks if she’ll be her dormmate next year? Joss states, “Absolutely.”

The ADA calls Jordan to the stand, and the commissioner explains they got an anonymous tip that Trina had recorded the revenge porn. She points out that Trina fully cooperated with them, and when she came in to be questioned, that’s when they found the second phone in her bag. The ADA submits the forensic report that ties Trina to the phone and no one else.

Jordan is questioned at trial GH

Diane cross-examines and asks Jordan about questioning Trina. Jordan explains she came in voluntarily and didn’t ask for council. She says Trina cooperated and wanted to help in any way she could. Diane asks about the other phone, and Jordan explains it was Trina who found the second phone in the bag and seemed confused about it. Diane asks if that is how a guilty person behaves? Jordan insists Trina did not act as a guilty person, and she only wanted to be helpful.

The ADA calls Rory to the stand and questions him about his investigation of a bar fight at the Highsider. She brings up a report that two underage girls were caught up in the brawl and asks if the women are in this courtroom. Rory is forced to admit it was Trina and Joss. She then asks why they were in the bar. He doesn’t know what she means. The ADA produces the bartender’s rap sheet, a man who traffics in stolen cellphones. The ADA points out the same kind Joss claimed Trina would never know how to buy.

Diane cross-examines and asks if Joss and Trina told Rory why they were there. He says they were looking for the man who sold Esme the phone. Diane asks if they were there to purchase a phone, and he states they wanted the bartender to ID Esme. The judge calls for an adjournment.
