Barham comforting Bonnie. ("I Love Her")

After Bonnie came forward claiming that she had been sexually assaulted by multiple male assailants when she was younger, many of them were sent to jail. One of the rapists was a councilman of which Barham used her statement in order to build a case against Councilman Louis Lindgren. During the first day at trial, the opposing attornies: Annalise Keating and Hugh Murphy saw Bonnie arrive at the courthouse. Once the court is in session, Barham puts Bonnie on the stand and has her explain that she was 14 when she was raped by the Councilman. She tells the court that it ended when she got pregnant, however, as she was being raped by multiple men she had no idea who the father was, nor does she know what happened to her baby once she gave birth. After the court called a recess, Barham comforted Bonnie while outside of the courthouse. The next time she is in court, Annalise is crossing Bonnie. Annalise questions Bonnie's memory. She asks how she knows that it was the councilman that raped her and Bonnie responds that she remembered that it was him when she saw him on the TV. Annalise throws her multiple different mental illnesses, each trying to disprove Bonnie's testimony. However, it has the opposite effect. Annalise also questions the existence of her child that supposedly died. Annalise then gets Bonnie to practically admit that there is a chance that the baby might not have existed which resulted in the councilman winning the case. ("I Love Her")
