In the courtroom, Adam and Vance stand as the judge speaks. Richard Hightower's sister and son, Justin, are in the back, and the Abbotts and Newmans are present, as well as Heather and Rafe. The judge explains why none of the testimony against Adam was valid. She says that the district attorney has not made his case, she cannot offer Justin any justice, and dismisses the charges.
Jack and Victor blame Owen. Owen says it's not his fault he had horrible witnesses and then walks away. Victor tells Jack to spread the word that he wants everyone to meet at the Ranch. Skye and Adam thank Vance, and Justin runs over to Adam and yells, "Why did you kill my father?! What did he ever do to you?!" His aunt tells him not to talk to Adam. Nicholas tells Sharon he appreciates her testifying. She says it wasn't enough. Victor tells Justin he grew up without a father. He offers to help him financially. His aunt is appreciative. They make their way over to Ashley. Adam walks over and announces to everyone that if they have anything to say to him, he can take whatever they've got. They all walk away.
Everyone gathers at the Ranch. Victor knows they have feelings of wanting to lash out at Adam, but he urges them to do the opposite. He explains that if they allow him to goad him into those types of displays, he wins. Victor asks everyone to ignore him as though he never existed. Victor says the crimes he has committed will weigh heavily on Adam for the rest of his life and he'll never be a free man.
Skye wonders why Adam is in a bad mood. He says she wouldn't understand, and suggests maybe it's time to rethink things. Skye informs him he's not backing out of their arrangement and angrily leaves to get champagne. Adam thinks back to leaving the farm, and Hope telling him he's a good man.
Next:Nikki cries "I can't believe Adam is suing us!"
Skye tells Adam he won, so why can't he walk away?
Nick asks Sharon and Faith to move in with him.
Happy Friday the 13th. This episode awful. I can't believe 3/4 of the episode was Adam's history. Adam only came to town a few years ago. I'm sure most people are aware of it.
Ha ha, MAB, budget cuts. That's always her excuse for every little thing wrong with the show. Well, it would save money using the actual footage in flashbacks instead of remaking them. Seriously. Did anyone else go "EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW" when NuHeather and NuAdam were kissing on the couch?
Speaking of Heather, isn't her bodyguard supposed to be with her at all times? Ronan or any other cop for that matter is no where in sight.
