After CJ's girlfriend Ella Crystal (Amber Tamblyn) provides evidence that the cigarette was digitally added to the photo of Lucinda Harris, proving that the DNA evidence was planted, Hunter is arrested, and 17 of his previous cases, including that of C.J. Nicholas, are declared mistrials. CJ is released from prison, pending investigation of the evidence presented during his case. Ella is there to meet him, and they go to CJ's apartment where they make love. As CJ lies sleeping, Ella watches the TV news report of CJ's release. When a photo of Doris Owens is shown, Ella notices the tattoos on Doris' fingers and realizes that they are the same tattoos she saw on the fingers of Taieesha. To be certain, she rewatches the video of Taieesha's interview, waking up CJ. Putting two and two together, Ella concludes that Doris/Taieesha was blackmailing CJ, that CJ's award-winning documentary about Taieesha was a complete phony, and that, in order to stop Doris from exposing his lie, CJ killed her. CJ tries to convince Ella that killing Doris was necessary in order to stop Hunter from sending 17 innocent people to prison. Ella points out that it was a brilliant plan -- CJ would either be found innocent because all the evidence was only circumstantial or he would be acquitted after he exposed Hunter for planting evidence. Once acquitted, the double jeopardy law would prevent him from being tried again. However, as she points out, he wasn't acquitted. Sirens can be heard in the background. Ella picks up her purse and opens the front door to reveal numerous police cars parked outside with their lights flashing. In the final scene, she looks back at CJ and says to him,"I just thought of one more thing...FU!" Ella then walks out the door.
