Joanna and Billy (The CW)

Episode 5 of 'Burden of Truth' Season 3 ended on a nail-biting cliffhanger. Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk) finally told Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney) she was pregnant, right after the Millwood situation makes him admit he never wants to have kids. We don't know how Billy handles that reveal, yet. But looking at the state of things, they might have a bigger case to crack first if they want a fighting chance at getting Kodie Chartrand (Sera-Lys McArthur) her kids back. Or so reveals the official synopsis of the upcoming episode 6.

Titled 'It Takes a Village', an interesting hint about both the prospect of a baby and the help they have been receiving from the community in Kodie's custody battle, the episode synopsis reveals a lot about Joanna and Billy teaming up to finally bag a win. We had expected some tension considering they differed so vastly about the baby thing, but looks like they are putting that down for another time. 

According to the official synopsis, "In an attempt to build a case against ClearDawn labs for the wrongful apprehension of children in Millwood, Joanna reluctantly agrees to try to put together a class-action lawsuit; Billy gets a tip from his father about a potential break in the case." ClearDawn labs working with the Millwood Family Service to gain them extra money for every apprehension was busted in the previous episode, and after much pleading from Joanna, Kodie is finally keeping quiet about the big reveal too. The fact that MFS lawyered up also gave Joanna a case against them and that, right there is their fighting chance for Kodie's win. 

But it's interesting to see that once again, as the community comes together to help out one of their own, it is the very same person who turned Kodie's world upside down, now helping Billy in restoring her family peace. Billy's father, Hank Crawford had been bribed by Marlene to lodge a false complaint against Kodie, which ended with her children in foster care. Marle is Kodie's daughter True's biological grandmother, so her intent behind framing Kodie is a given. But what might have led Hank to do this odd favor is still up for debate.

Is it an attempt at redemption to finally fix things with her son? The last time they were together, he was going to give a written statement about the bribe, which he kept avoiding until the night of drinking ended in a fight between the father-son duo and they landed in jail. Let's hope that's not what repeats again and Hank's efforts are actually genuine this time. For all we know, this odd apology of sorts might change Billy's mind about having kids too. 

'Burden of Truth' Season 3 airs on Thursdays at 8 pm on The CW.
