|A 5th witness shows up, making it even more tedious to question them about each other's testimonies... then when Wright finds a contradiction but has no evidence in the court record to present it with, Layton has an idea... using one witness's testimony to contradict another's.|
The flower shop girl ended up being the true witch. She says she framed Espella as part of her plan to try and end the witch trials... according to the story, this was the way to put and end to them.
"When the Great Witch Bezella has been put to the flames and vanquished from this world, these trials will come to an end..."
When that witch is about to be sent to the flames.. Espella starts begging them to stop... they refuse, the flower seller is then executed...
Phoenix: "winning a trial has never felt this depressing..."
Now that the 5 of them all have their memories recovered, they recall what happened. Layton theorizes that one of the witches chasing Espella, must've been the mystery culprit who hit Aldente with the pipe. They must've been trying to get that person out of the way so they could take Espella back to Labyrinthia...
"However, that plan was clearly foiled, given that you ended up in court instead."
hmm... could that have something to do with how Espella was out of it during that trial when she had Darklaw speaking for her, saying that she was a student at a boarding school?
Layton thinks that same thing... "Someone must have been attempting to cover up Espella's identity."
Barnham then tells them that Espella can't go home with them, because she's now under suspicion of being the Great Witch Bezella... he says that it was not his decision, and that he will be investigating until the appointed time of the trial, the day of the storyteller's next parade...
Maya: "How do you address a Great Witch...? 'Hail to thee, oh magnificent magical one!' Or maybe just: 'Wassup, witchy baby?'
