You’ve watched the Jodi Arias saga unfold on HLN. Now, the jury is trying to figure out: Did Arias kill ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander in self-defense or is she a cold-blooded killer? The trial has taken twists and turns full of scandalous (and X-rated) secrets. The plot thickened this week as jurors slammed Arias with question after question about the day Travis died.

Arizona is one of the few states that actually allows jurors to question the defendant on the stand. Starting Wednesday, they grilled Arias with questions like, "Why stay with him?" (She previously testified that he was verbally and physically abusive.)

Will the interrogation help or hurt Arias? In Session correspondent Jean Casarez joined Natasha to break down the latest on the trial. They are talking all about Arias' demeanor, the jury's questions and what twists we could see next.
