Later, Phyllis took the witness stand and tried to paint Nikki, Victoria and Sharon as victims. Countering, Christine painted the trio as ruthless vigilantes! Recognizing how damaging her testimony had been, Phyllis tried to apologize to Nick, but he refused to forgive her. Meanwhile, Michael decided Nikki and Victoria’s best hope was to offer a plea deal. Brittany, however, refused to join him, believing she could use Sharon’s romantic relationship with Rey to get her client off. Of course, Michael’s plea deal became a moot point when Christine refused to consider it. Thwarted, Michael returned to Plan B by exposing Tessa as a blackmailer, and making a case that she’d killed J.T.! Despite Victoria’s testimony about how J.T. had abused and terrorized her, the jury came back with a guilty verdict! Shocked, Nick and Billy convinced Rey to work with them to prove that the ladies couldn’t be guilty because J.T. was actually alive!
