Mitzeee (Rachel Shenton) still has no clear memory of what happened on the day of Mercedes's stabbing, and is initially reluctant to listen to her shrewd friend Nancy when she explains that twisted Mercedes must have committed the shocking act herself.
However, as Mitzeee heads to court and hears the crushing news that she is being sentenced to seven years behind bars, she is livid when a smug Mercedes (Jennifer Metcalfe) smirks at her from the gallery.
It's clear that Mercedes wants Mitzeee to know that this has been nothing more than a wicked scheme all along, but as the glamour girl loses control and tries to expose the truth in the courtroom, is it already far too late?
