Intercut with that scene is one in a courtroom, where Ethan is about to find out his verdict. Mrs. Shepherd sits on one side of the courtroom and David, looking constipated, sits on the other. Ethan pleads not guilty, and the judge starts reading off all the counts and finally announces that Ethan has been found guilty and will be sentenced in two days time. Mrs. Shepherd makes an emotional appeal to the judge for leniency, since their family has already suffered so much. Ethan is hustled out of the courtroom and David grabs him and vows to make it right, but Ethan is convinced that God will save him. David tries to tell his mother that he'll fix it, but she just gives him the Heisman and storms out of the courtroom.
The next morning, Silas and Rose are eating breakfast. Silas is just about to grab a buttery-looking croissant when Rose slaps his hand away and forces him to take some scrambled egg whites, to Silas's dismay. Ugh. Couldn't they have mixed in some veggies or something? That looks nasty.
David paces anxiously in the foyer, and when Michelle comes downstairs, he begs her for help getting through to Silas for help with Ethan's case. David knows that Michelle might hold a grudge, since Ethan took her hostage and all. Michelle promises to see what she can do. Having apparently learned nothing from her previous failed attempts to get Silas to do her bidding, Michelle stomps right into the dining room and aggressively starts ordering Silas to help out with Ethan. You catch more flies with honey, Michelle. Jack and Rose walk into the room, and Jack doesn't understand why David is even a subject of conversation. Trying to make himself part of the story, Jack says he'll walk with Silas over to the Ministry but Silas rudely shoots him down. Rose prevents Silas from having a muffin, and Silas quietly tells Michelle that he'll find something for Ethan.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are busy cleaning up the papers from yesterday's announcement. They are just getting around to this now? They couldn't have done it last night? Anyway, they argue over whether the discarded papers are evidence of dreams denied or hope, and then the fat one claims that he's going to tell Thomasina he loves her when Judgment Day ends tomorrow. Isn't that really "Judgment Days," if it lasts for two days? Guess they don't have truth in advertising in Gilboa.
