Carrie arrives at Grimes's house and finds him on the floor. Jeremy returns and when he sees Carrie, tells her she can't stay. She tells him that his father is dead on the floor just a few feet away. Jeremy is upset, realizing that his father is really dead. He asks her how it happened. Carrie says he was moaning when she arrived. Jeremy asks if he said anything before he died. She says that he did.
Gerard tells Dawson that he should be getting the coroner's report on Grimes soon. Dawson asks who found the body, and Gerard says it was Carrie. Dawson says that Grimes testimony would have been useless, but with his death, it would appear that he will win the case for them.
Barnabas tells Quentin that Mordecai Grimes is dead. Quentin asks how it happened. Barnabas says they don't know yet. He says Carrie Stokes found him. He says it will be a field day for Dawson, as he's sure he will attribute his death to witchcraft. Quentin asks how he can prove it. Barnabas says that he doesn't know.
The court comes to order, and Dawson solemnly notes that his next witness turned up dead last night. He says he can prove without a shadow of a doubt that the death is the result of witchcraft at the hands of Quentin. He calls Carrie Stokes to the stand. She is sworn in. Dawson asks her when she last saw Mordecai Grimes. She says she saw him at his house last night. She found him on the floor in his house. She thought he had fallen, and when she saw the look in his eyes, she knew he was dying. Dawson asks if he said anything to her. She says he did, and when he asks what he said before dying, she refuses. Dawson compels her to tell them. She says that his last words were, "Quentin Collins." She adds that Quentin didn't kill him, and when Dawson objects, it is sustained. Barnabas has no questions for her. Dawson provides the coroner's report saying the cause of death is unknown, and clearly an act of sorcery.
He then calls Jeremy Grimes to the stand. Dawson asks him about the letter he's holding. Jeremy explains that it was a letter his father wrote and asked him to deliver to Dawson right before he died. Dawson reads the letter explaining how he had evidence proving Quentin's guilt. Barnabas asks Jeremy if the letter was sealed when it was given to him. He says that it was. He asks if his father told him of the contents of the letter. Jeremy says he did not. Barnabas points out that only Jeremy's father and Dawson were the only two men to know the contents of the letter were his father and Dawson, and now one of those men is dead. He points out how conveniently the course of the trial has been altered in the last 24 hours. The last remark is stricken from the record, and Jeremy is dismissed. Dawson rests his case, and Barnabas is asked to present the case. Barnabas calls Quentin to the stand.
Quentin discusses his arguments with Grimes. Barnabas asks if he had anything to do with his death, and Quentin has denied it. Barnabas asks if Quentin has ever practiced the Black Arts, and he says he wouldn't even know how. Dawson cross-examines him. He asks if Desmond sought out the head of Judah Zachery on his request. He admits that he did. Dawson asks why, and Quentin says it was merely curiosity. Dawson asks if he longed for the powers of Judah Zachery. Quentin says he did not, and Dawson accuses him of using those powers to kill off the list of victims. Quentin says he's sick of Dawson's lies and insinuations, and when he gets through with the trial, he'll deal with him.
Carries comes to see Jeremy. He tells her that Quentin is guilty. He says he's a warlock, She tells Jeremy that he sounds like his father. He says he hopes they execute Quentin. Carrie runs out on him.
The court comes to order, and the judges announce that they have arrived at a verdict.
