What do you think happened to Al?


I think Cassie's death would probably be ruled as self defence, but burning her body is still illegal. Would he get any prison time for that? If so, how much?

reply

Al would of been still in trouble, since it appeared that he was pillow choking her way past normal(making it look like he had an instinct to kill within him) Plus with the new found video making him look guilty of rape, would definitely make him get jail time.
Would also think Ryan would loose his job & get 86’d from his pediatric profession if the video was made available to the public

What Al did was definitely self defence. He was still handcuffed to the bed. If he let Cassie go before she died, she would've easily been able to kill him.

You can't get arrested for rape unless the victim presses charges, and Nina obviously couldn't have, because she was dead.

reply

Nina, couldn’t have remembered the rape, since she was unconscious(so Al would of been charged for that alone) Even the lawyer admitted with tampering with the witnesses, but now with him firmly against Al, plus the video tape, plus the witnesses come forth(to save their own skin) Al would of been charged with something.
If he didn’t think he was guilty of rape, then he would of not desposed of Cassandra’s body

reply

I think there's no scenario in which you can be arrested for rape if the victim doesn't press charges.

reply

They disposed of the body so he wouldn't get charged w her murder too or if it was in self defense, manslaughter at the least. Obstructing justice too by destroying the evidence.

Even if he were not charged, the video would have ruined his career and life. He was worried about that as well when he was sobbing to Joe on the bed.

I think in the end she let Ryan off the hook but she knew he would be at the wedding and had conflicting values so she made him sweat a little.

What I wanna know is what happened with Ryan and Joe? Joe just gets away scot free? and Ryan continues being a doctor right?
