After a 17-year-old girl is found dead in a canal, a public prosecutor makes a shocking discovery about her that puts a planned leave from work on hold.
The trial begins: Elena presents party photos, a dress tear and a witness with sharp hearing to build a murder scenario. Linda's alibi is questioned.
Silvia admits a motive to Elena, and gives Ruggero a piece of intel. The Monaco family's maid and Claudio's ex paint a damaging portrayal of Linda.
Linda's father orders Ruggero to cross a line. Andreoli testifies he found DNA evidence in Palazzo Te's garden. Ruggero pursues the catering van lead.
Discrediting photos of Elena hit the press. To create reasonable doubt, Ruggero calls to the stand Nicola Tomei, but Elena has done her homework on him.
Using cellphone records, Elena identifies the man on the scooter. A detail Arrigoni mentioned about Nicola Tomei leads Ruggero to a shocking discovery.
To force her to withdraw Ivan Zaia as a witness, Ruggero blackmails Elena. Urged by Ruggero to name her father as a suspect, Linda takes the stand.
While having drinks with her father at Palazzo Te's bar, Elena comes to a sinking realization. The murder weapon is recovered, identifying the killer.
