Episode 3x047 When Ben and Maria asked Benjy when the last time he saw Maria was, he said that it was before she left to come back to Sunset Beach.

Sara told Casey about her theory that this whole thing was set up by Maria and Tess, but he denied that it was possible.

Ricardo ordered an autopsy so that he would know if the gunshot or Cole tampering with her life support killed her. Antonio told Gabi that Francesca accused her of shooting her.

Episode 3x056 Just as Ricardo started to play the tape, Gabi stopped him.

Ricardo took the tapes home with him. When Gabi found out, she and Antonio took off after him. AJ questioned Olivia about her reasons for being at the Inn the night that Francesca was shot.

Episode 3x069 Michael suggested that Vanessa might have taken the assignment in order to talk to him, because he knew that she was too good to really have been assigned to their story. He told her how flattered he was that she went to the effort to arrange the interview.

Bette suggested that Olivia should concentrate on figuring out who removed the gun from the house, rather than who hid it there.

Olivia worried that Caitlin might have planted the gun in her house to begin with, but Bette talked her out of it.
