Hugh and Annalise fighting for their client. ("I Love Her")

In 2002, his and Annalise's client, Councilman Louis Lindgren was charged with rape. After arriving at the courthouse, they are greeted with a wave of reporters. They then get stopped for a brief minute as the witness, Bonnie Winterbottom goes past. Once the court is in session, Bonnie is on the stand explaining 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. Once the court is in recess, Bonnie sits outside when her attorney goes up to her and tells her that she did a good job testifying. Annalise and her partner exit the building to see Bonnie's lawyer leaving her. Her partner reminds her that Bonnie made the case even more difficult to win with her testimony, but he knows of a person who can fix it. He baits her by practically offering her partner at the law firm if she helps to win the case. The next time she is in court, Annalise is crossing Bonnie. Annalise questions her while she is on the stand and asks her why she waited so long to tell people what had been happening to her. Bonnie tells her that she was very young and her father was intimidating. Next, 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. During recess, Hugh asks Annalise if she is trying to lose the case on purpose. Back in court, Annalise is crossing Bonnie again. This time, she 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. After winning the case, Annalise quits her job. ("I Love Her")
