Pete's on the stand, being asked about Violet. He says she abandoned her child. Violet's wearing a white blouse with a white see-through jacket and her hair is up. Violet's lawyer thinks abandonment is a strong word, and so is "hate," then she reminds him that he said he hated his wife and felt nothing about her death. He admits he said that (and I remember it, but can't find it in the recaps, so no link unless someone can remind me what episode that was). Cut to the court hallway again, where Frances Fisher tells Pete it doesn't matter what Violet was to him in the past. Today she's the enemy. Addison's with him, with her hair up and a dark jacket. Back to the courtroom, where Charlotte's on the stand, saying Violet's a great mother, who knew her limits. Violet's listening, in her white dress with the black flowers. Charlotte says that Violet handed Lucas over out of love for him, and she doesn't see why everyone isn't supporting her now that she's ready. Frances asks if Violet talks about Lucas with her, and Charlotte says hell no, Violet's not that kind of mother. "I hate babies. So does she." Then she backtracks that she hates babies other than her own.
Cut to the hallway, where Cooper finds Charlotte and tells her that Violet hating babies wasn't exactly a winning statement. She tells him not to talk about her testimony after what he said, and that at least she tried to be loyal. She tells him to stuff it and walks off. Cut back to court, where Violet's lawyer asks if Addison is a good influence in Lucas's life. He says he doesn't know. She tries to ask a bunch more questions -- stupidly all about Addison instead of Violet -- and he acts like a mute. The judge even explains it to him: "She asks, you respond." But the lawyer finally gives up. After that, Violet (in her white shirt, black jacket), finds Sam and asks what that is. He admits he loves Addison and hates her, and he wanted to get up there and tear them apart and take the baby away from them, but it would have been for the wrong reasons. So, he's sorry, but he's trying to be a good man.
