Pearl congratulates you for listening, making theories, and tricking everyone into believing you. Maya warns you that if you don't win, her ghost will haunt you along with Mia's.
Will Lotta be able to tell the truth? Or will she stab you in the back like last time? Von Karma calls Lotta Hart to the stand and has her testify about her account.
Lotta's Testimony: Witness's Account
Lotta presents the picture she took when you two entered. It shows what appears to be Maya holding a pistol from behind and Dr. Grey's lifeless body. You can't see Maya's face, however. Lotta's Photo will be added to the Court Record. You begin the cross-examination.
Witness's Account: Cross-examination
Press on all of Lotta's statements. You are given a choice on the fourth and fifth statements. In particular, the fifth statement gives a choice on where she looked. Choose Behind the folding screen.
Things have gone from bad to worse. You are given a choice to present further evidence. Choose Can't present anything yet, as doing so would get you nowhere.
It looks like all hope seems lost, but you hear a voice. It's Mia. This time Pearl is channeling her! Mia tells you to recall the event when you first entered the crime scene. Yesterday, you told her Lotta took two shots! Why didn't Lotta mention this in her testimony?
You try to stop the judge from ending cross-examination, but you are overruled. Fortunately, von Karma wants to hear more of Phoenix's claim against her "flawless" case and wants Lotta to testify further. Thankfully, the judge allows it. Well, von Karma's whip seems to help in this case.
Lotta's Testimony: Witness's Account Pt.2
Witness's Account Pt.2: Cross-examination
Press on Lotta's fourth statement. She had told you that she had taken two pictures and you ask why she hadn't told the court about this in the first place. Lotta says von Karma told her to not say anything about it. Von Karma?! Why would she do such a thing? You are given a choice. It doesn't matter which, but Confront Franziska would be more humorous.
Von Karma says the reason she didn't submit the second picture in court is that she didn't think it would be of much use. After you finish protesting about the second photo, Von Karma finally submits Lotta's Photo 2, which will be added to the Court Record. It shows a clear shot of Maya channeling a different person. You can even see her face!
You are given a choice of whether to insist or not. You can pick either choice, and von Karma presents the court another picture. It shows you, in the Detention Center, talking to Mia channeled by Maya! This proves to the court Maya's power! She took a picture at the Detention Center!? That's illegal, which is why von Karma isn't planning to submit the photo at all.
Things are going downhill, and fast. You look at Lotta's second photo. You wonder if there is something wrong with it. Say I can prove it. You examine the photo. Look at the right-hand sleeve (Her left). Wasn't there a bullet hole there? Present the sleeve to the court. If Maya was squatting and the sleeve had a bullet hole in it during the fight, then it should be in the picture as well!
The Judge accuses von Karma of hiding the evidence, but von Karma says she wasn't informed, and blames the police. The fact that the bullet hole is in the sleeve on the costume you have now, but not in the picture which was taken after the crime, has confused The Judge. This is it. When given the choice, say that The shooter is someone else.
This leaves two questions, though: where did Maya vanish to, and how did the mysterious woman sneak in? It appears that you will have to look at this from a different angle. When given the choice, choose Maya had left the room. When asked to present how, Present the Black Key. There is only one key like this, and Maya had the key when she entered the room. You saw Pearl with the key, but she was nowhere near the scene at the time of the crime! If that is so, then Maya might have left the room with the key!
With this, you have given the Judge a reason to adjourn court for today. You have frustrated von Karma, as she vows to win the case and get a guilty verdict no matter what it takes.
Maya says she doesn't recall ever leaving the room and she doesn't recall a third person either. Maya has asked you to take Pearl home by train.
