Josslyn does a decent job of fighting off the hook killer and when she gets a chance she yells for help. Britt hears her and comes to help because Britt is waiting on the docks for a car to take her to the airport. Britt hits the hook killer, who is wearing a mask, with her purse and she and Josslyn manage to hold off the killer until Dex arrives and shoots the killer in the arm. The killer drops the hook and runs away. Britt tells the police that she saw the hook killer was attacking a young woman and, after they both fought off the killer, the young woman ran away. The story was what Britt, Dex and Josslynn decided on because the police can’t find out he shot the killer in the arm because he works for Sonny and was using an unlicensed gun. The audience sees the hook killer wearing her mask and when we see the killer take her mask off we see the hook killer is Heather Webber.
