Owen watches the court proceedings with interest, and has some interesting news of his own for Alicia: Their mother is in town. Hurray?
Veronica is as passive-aggressive as they get. She can't stop herself from interjecting little comments about Alicia's hair and home. Alicia can't stop rolling her eyes.
Turns out Veronica's third husband recently died, but at the last minute, he changed his will to leave her nothing. His son had informed him that Veronica was cheating.
Alicia gets David Lee to help out, and his smarminess (coupled with Veronica's flirtatiousness) is a treat to watch.
After Owen perjures himself about Veronica cheating (which was true), she gets her money.
Meanwhile, Cary's sporting a black eye from last week's beatdown. (Thank goodness he's OK, but he really wasn't injured more than that?) He drops by Nick's work, all fake smiles, to give him a not-at-all-friendly warning.
Under the guise of talking about the tow-truck-company lawsuit, Cary notes he's "looked into everything there is to know about your business."
"I can use my friends at the state's attorney's office to know more," he says with an intimidating gleam in his eye.
We like Scary Cary. Take Nick down!
