Cutter and Connie go back and explain to Jack all that happened in court, as well as their theory that this was Kim's backup plan in case anything went wrong. Jack takes down the names of the two agents they dealt with, saying, "I'm taking prisoners." Okay, well, Green is really the one taking prisoners. He and Lupo walk up to the two agents on the street and arrest them for kidnapping.
In the judge's office, they bicker for a while and Jack accuses them of being "blinded by zealotry" so they can't see they're being played by a psycho killer. The U.S. Attorney questions the use of the word "killer" since there are no murder charges, which Cutter points out they would have filed if they had been able to arraign and charge her. After more blustering, they agree to a trade: the agents with all charges dropped for Kim.
That done, Kim is charged with eight counts of second-degree murder. She's got a new young lawyer and whispers advice in his ear -- here's where I get confused, knowing next to nothing about actual law, but basically if the time she's held is calculated from her first arrest date four days earlier, that gives the city less than two days to get an indictment. Cutter freaks out a bit, but there's nothing he can do since it's the law, so less than two days it is.
Back at the office, he manically tells Jack his plans to file an appeal, but Jack just tells him to focus on the Friday noon deadline and his case. Unfortunately, he has no case unless they can prove that Kim is Claire and got Bobby out of jail. Connie comes in as if on cue to tell them the facial recognition software picked up nothing, but that she did get a partial fingerprint of Claire's and it's a four-point match to Kim's. I also know nothing about fingerprints, but Jack seems to think that's crap and will never convince a grand jury of anything, and announces that he's out and Cutter can just do whatever he likes. Cutter is clearly going to forge ahead, and Connie says she's with him.
Bum bum! Cutter tells the grand jury what's what, and when he's asked just what he means by a "partial match," he actually answers by saying it's enough to convince him it's the same person. But like the desperate homeowners at the beginning of the hour, these jurors don’t question anything. Connie sneaks quietly in the door, so Cutter breaks for lunch. She's got bad news that Kim wants to testify -- it turns out she's got a new story, and she plays the innocent as she tells the jury all about how Bobby abducted her four years previously but that she grew to care for him over time. She's able to weave a whole story painting herself as a naïve victim whose boyfriend/abductor was killed in a robbery, and the jury eats it all up like a gourmet dinner. She also is able to spin everything with her previous lawyer like he pressured her into sex. Cutter tries to nail her, but she manages to weave everything into her victim scenario, and the jury falls for it and lets her off.
