Agnes is apprehensive about meeting Herbert's family at a party and then she is also called up for jury duty. The case, which appears to be a crime of passion, has parallels to what has happened between David and Maddie over the years. Agnes is the lone standout in the jury and thinks the man is not guilty of strangling his partner. She then misses the party because she is sequestered because of the impasse. Herbert's relatives think that Agnes is figment of his imagination. To break Agnes' deadlock, Herbert decides to solve the crime.
