A Closer Look: The Truth Doesn’t Always Set You Free

Shortly thereafter, Dr. Joplin phones Todd with the news, and urges him one last time to abandon his scheme.

As John gets Marty’s name out of Keys, she surprises Todd by wearing one of the new outfits he bought her. John is held in contempt of court when the judge refuses to grant him a search warrant.

As Starr is giving birth, Dr. Joplin prays Todd will have a change of heart. At that same moment, Todd and Marty’s relationship moves to the next level.
