Diane represents Peter in court but the judge hates Peter and she knows it won’t be an easy case.
Louis Canning tells Alicia that Geneva Pine is the AUSA’s secret witness. Alicia asks Jason to look into it. Geneva claims that Peter stopped her from questioning the suspect without a lawyer and then stopped her from looking for the missing bullets.
Canning later gives Alicia a file with coworkers affidavits claiming that Pine had an affair with Peter. He ended it and she’s getting her revenge by lying on the stand. Canning is awed and impressed when Alicia barely blinks at the news of Peter’s affair. Peter refuses to use the information because he says it isn’t true.
Jason also heard about the affair but didn’t bring it to Alicia. When she questions him about it he says he can’t be the investigator on Peter’s case any longer because it’s too awkward. Jason tells Lucca that he thinks Alicia won’t go through with the divorce if Peter goes to prison. Lucca encourages Jason to stop playing it cool and admit that he loves Alicia.
Diane asks Kurt to testify as to his preliminary results since he was the person who examined the original bullets that went missing. Kurt says that in his opinion, they weren’t fired from the accused’s gun. The prosecution calls Kurt’s former student and associate Holly who, still angry that Kurt backed out of the deal to sell his business to her, makes it sound as though Kurt slanted his testimony for his wife.
It comes out in court that Cary Agos handled the evidence on the case and Cary is called in to testify. Alicia assumes Cary is out to get her and Peter but Cary swears he’s only telling the truth and that he’s disappointed that Alicia wouldn’t know that about him after all of these years.
Peter testifies in his defense, admits to his past wrong doings but says that his own conviction being over turned spurred him to micro manage the State’s Attorney’s office to make sure that others weren’t wrongly convicted on mishandled evidence.
The AUSA offers a deal of two-years. He tells Alicia that he’s going to take it but then they get the call that the jury has reached a verdict
