She recognizes her name as one of the people she did things to.

She doesn’t want anything to do with that person.

Esme just wants to raise her baby and defensively declares that Spencer can’t have him.

Trina says she’s not there for Spencer and he has nothing to do with this.

She wanted to see the baby for herself. She asks Esme if this is the best place for the child.

trina asks esme what she remembers

Esme insists he needs her and she needs him. Trina can see how she loves him.

Explaining that her lawyer doesn’t think she’s responsible because of her father’s influence, Esme adds she doesn’t think she should be punished for things she can’t even remember.

She has to put the baby down for his nap. Before Trina leaves, Esme asks if she came to see if she’s lying. Trina admits it.

“I’m not lying. I don’t have any memory of my life before this and I don’t think I ever will,” Esme says, walking off.

At Kelly’s, Cam reminds Joss of how many times he’s had to listen to her venting about being surrounded by mobsters and guns.

That’s all she’s going to get with Dex.

She insists Dex is different and he doesn’t need to worry about her.

Trina calls and asks her and Cam to meet her and Spencer at Sonny’s place.

Joss and Cam head over to Sonny’s.

Dex answers the door and Spencer bellows at him to show his guests inside.

After Dex goes to his room, the three friends wonder why Trina called them together.

joss and cam arrive to meet spencer

She bustles in and tells them she went to see Esme.

Trina says that is Esme has been faking she’s very convincing.

That’s why she wants to go to the DA and ask him to drop the charges against her.

trina tells her friends she wanst the DA to drop teh charges

Joss points out it doesn’t work that way. Trina insists this is for the baby.

If they prosecute Esme now, there’s a good chance she will get off and could eventually go back to her old ways.

If they hold off on charges now, she can be charged in the future. They all agree to this.

After they call Diane to set up a meeting, Spencer thanks Trina for what she’s doing for his baby brother.

She doesn’t think Esme is a threat. He hopes she’s right.

Back at Spring Ridge, Esme receives a letter from Heather. She throws it on the floor.

Picking it up, she opens it and reads.
