  • Episode Description
  • Joe rejects a plea bargain and decides to go to trial. Donna testifies that Ray was physically harming her, and Valerie corroborates this with her eyewitness account of the Palm Springs incident. The Associated Press picks up Brandon's story about the trial for nationwide syndication. Brandon tries to convince Ray to stop hurting Donna and reveal the truth about his fight with Joe. The prosecutor portrays Donna as a liar because she covered for Ray on her medical report. Ray feels guilty; he owns up to the abuse and clears Joe during his testimony. Donna agrees not to prosecute Ray if he remains in therapy. Ray thanks Brandon for setting him straight and decides to go out on tour. Donna's friend Lisa is selected as Rose Queen. Colin babysits for Erin while Kelly and David are at the trial, as Mel and Jackie have gone away for the weekend. Valerie tells Colin that Kelly spent the night with Brandon. Colin refuses to believe Kelly's denial, but their argument is interrupted when Erin falls into the bathtub. Colin revives her through CPR. Susan becomes angry after Brandon reveals that he felt tempted by Kelly.moreless

    • This is Jamie Walters' last appearance as a regular cast member. Walters feared that Ray's abusive behavior was negatively affecting his music career, as fans reportedly interrupted concerts to berate him for "pushing Donna down the stairs."

    • Megan Lee Bradley plays Erin in this episode only.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Donna is testifying, she has been called as a witness for the State, who is prosecuting her boyfriend. When her boyfriend's lawyer is allowed to cross-examine her, he asks her a leading question. The prosecutor objects, stating that Donna has been asked a leading question, to which the judge replies, "Sustained!" Every legal jurisdiction in the U.S. permits leading questions to be asked of witnesses on cross-examination. In fact, everyone who practices law knows that you are supposed to ask nothing but leading questions during cross-examination. The objection clearly should have been overruled. Also, in this same scene but earlier, when Donna states an opinion that the judge strikes after the prosecutor's objection, a boom mic drops into the frame between the lawyer and Donna at the top of the screen.

    • When Kelly picks Erin up out of the tub and hands her to Colin, you can clearly see the little girl's eyes open and her hands moving around, including when Colin lays her on the ground and her hand moves from her mouth to her chest.
