Synopsis


Trish awakens to find that Jimmy is missing along with her shotgun. His return startles her, but he explains that he's spotted a freighter while walking along the bluffs. When they arrive at the bluffs, the freighter is gone. We leave them as Trish stands by the edge of the cliff with Jimmy looking on behind her. After witnessing the death of Cal and Chloe, Sully and Danny pursue Wakefield. They decide to split up to cover more ground. Thinking that Danny is alone, Wakefield emerges to attack him, but is hit with a partial shotgun blast from Sully who was using Danny as bait. Abby and Henry come upon the trio and she's given the chance of finishing Wakefield off, but instead knocks him out with the butt of her shotgun. They take Wakefield to the jail and lock him up and agree that the law should decide his fate. Henry goes to get Trish and Jimmy, but finds an empty car. He returns to the jail and relays to the others that Trish and Jimmy are missing. Shea reveals that she found a file on Jimmy in Sheriff Mills' attic, which contains his arrest reports and states that Jimmy was a suspect in a murder case in Seattle. Wakefield awakes in his jail cell and wants to talk to Abby. She asks him why the killing has continued, why it didn't stop with her father's death and Wakefield responds saying that this is all about her. He asks if Abby's mother ever loved her father, the Sheriff. Abby taunts him, telling him that they loved each other. Angered, Wakefield reveals that he loved Abby's mother but she stole his son and because of that, she paid with her life. Jimmy arrives at the jail. Trish's fallen off the cliff and needs their help. Suspicious of Jimmy's criminal past, Henry confiscates his shotgun and accuses Jimmy of pushing Trish off the cliff. Jimmy states his innocence. Henry, Abby and Sully take Jimmy back to the cliff to see if he's telling the truth. At the cliffs, initially there is no sign of Trish and tempers flare between Henry and Jimmy, but then Trish turns up safe and unharmed. She explains to the group that she slipped on the ledge and fell in the water and in doing so, found a boat house with a working radio. The group goes to the boat house and they're successful in reaching the Coast Guard on the radio. They are told that help will arrive on the island in approximately four hours. Meanwhile back at the jail, Shea and Danny's suspicions are confirmed that Wakefield has an accomplice when Madison tells them that while she was being held captive by Wakefield, someone was bringing them food, but she never saw who the person was. Wakefield escapes from his cell and attacks Danny from behind. Danny fiends off Wakefield until Shea and Madison escape. Then Danny dies at the hands of Wakefield. Waiting for the Coast Guard to arrive, Henry and Trish return to the Candlewick Inn and enjoy a quiet moment together back in their room. A knock on the door interrupts their solace. Henry opens the door but no one is there. Concerned, Henry tells Trish to stay put and lock the door while he investigates. With Henry gone, Wakefield breaks down the door and goes for Trish but she narrowly escapes out the window and runs into the woods. She is met by Henry and falls into his arms. Her relief turns into fear when Henry confesses to being Wakefield's accomplice. Henry then kills Trish with his knife. Wakefield arrives on scene and Henry looks up from her body and says, "Hey Dad."
