Todd still wants to extend the relationship where Jackie needs a cutoff.

One month later another boy Michael goes missing from the town. Greg makes the chief detective of the case, and Detective Spitzky is selected as an assistant. A green pocket knife is found at the crime scene. Greg connects this incident with a 15 years old case where a series of abductions were made of a teen child. Braun & Travers two boys escaped from the killer Cole Gordon and after that, he was captured. In this situation, Greg guesses that previously they caught the wrong guy and sentenced him. Now the real criminal again starts killing children.

Greg & Spitzky are called by the chief and they go to speak with Braun. But he becomes hysterical when he sees them. On the other hand, mysterious events start occurring in Harper’s house which looks like paranormal events. In Harper’s house TV turns on by itself, pictures are going missing from their frames and even a repairman tells them they have a daughter and she let him in. But they have only one son Connor.

Todd comes to meet Jackie but then her coffee mug falls from the top of the balcony. It strikes Todd’s head, and he starts bleeding.

She comes out of the car, and some distance ahead of her finds a little cottage. Mindy discovers that Justin & Michael are imprisoned there by Greg. She is attacked by him before frees them from the closet. Greg shoots in her head and confirms she is dead. Then he back to the house.

In Greg’s house, he is attacked by him with an ax. They scuffle and at a stage, Alec takes Greg’s gun. Alec steps into the light and now for the first time, Greg sees him. Greg becomes shocked by recognizing Alec. He tries explaining but Alec shoots in his head without hearing anything.

Spitzky arrives at the place and realizes the situation. Alec calls by Spitzky’s name and Spitzky also recognizes Alec.
