No, I think it refers to TM being under JB's spell...different poision apple...
BUT I flunked "A" school verbalology so I may be wrong..
No, it is referring to JB biting the poison apple of greed. It was in response to the "scenario" that Friday posted earlier in this thread.

(Of course, every particle of her "truth" must check out entirely with LE or we win and she gets zero).
Ah Ha--we have here a moral dilemma: What do we most want: To punish Casey (hopefully)? Or to find out what happened to our Caylee and recover whatever remains of her???
Now before you answer, take into account the vicious circus that would erupt between Cindy and Casey if Cindy thought a lot of money was going to go to Casey (okay, after a not long enough prison term) for killing Caylee.
By the time Casey gets out of jail on parole and for good behavior, a $175,000 payoff will multiply many times and make her a very rich ex-con.
Of course, GA and CA will tie Casey up in court forever, but JB won't care because he'll be paid as soon as Casey signs the deal.
Before you answer, do NOT veer into the possible legalities that would prevent Casey from financially benefitting from Caylee's death. There are dozens of workarounds if a lawyer like MN were to write the agreement.
So what's your choice?
I'm thinking of the possible legalities to anyone that would even propose such an agreement to a client under charges of Murder1 in an ongoing investigation that offers money as the carrot dangling at the end of the string. JB would surely be brought up in front of the bar and I don't think it would be pretty.
I know, I know..........where's my sense of humor.
My response was in bold.
