In the interrogation room, Trina is stunned that Spencer asked her why she did it. He points out that there is evidence, but she claims she was framed by Esme. Spencer reminds her that he and Esme left the cabin, and that she was drunk and very upset that night. Spencer is in no position to judge and he wants to believe her. Trina asks, “Then why can’t you?” Trina reminds him that he knows what Esme is capable of. Spencer says he was the instigator and everything she did was because she loved him. Trina says the difference is that she would never hurt someone for someone she loved. Spencer reminds him that she lied for him.
