Henry and Jack are in the cabin at Raven Lake, they argue because Jack is thinking the killer is Maddie and Henry is adamant that she's not. Outside the cabin, Gwen has become convinced that Jade is The Slasher, she tries to explain her reasoning to Will and Luke, but Luke refuses to believe it, and so does Will. He calms her down. Gwen confronts Jade when she walks up, asks her where she's been, she says she's been walking. Gwen says, "For three hours?!" Dallas arrives. He said he just heard on the radio that Casey is hurt but he's still alive, he tells them that Maddie's sister is The Slasher. Will and Gwen leave to go check on Casey with Dallas. Jade says to Luke, "Did you see that? She wouldn't let him help her; they are SO not back together!" Luke can't believe she's thinking about something like that at a time like this. Will and Gwen sit down, they talk about their relationship, Luke tells Jade to stop staring at them. A medic arrives and begins looking at Gwen's wounds. Jade walks up behind Will and thanks him for defending her, he tells her to give it a rest and walks away. The medic says they have no gurneys, Will carries her. Luke says to Jade let's go home.
Maddie comforts Casey as he lays wounded. She pulls the mask off The Slasher, it is Eve. As she lies on the ground, she confesses everything. She says she killed all those people because of Maddie. Her hatred of Maddie comes spewing forth. She says, "cute little Maddie, poor little Maddie!" She calls Maddie a some horrible names. She says Maddie came to her house, paraded herself in front of her husband, that Maddie made the rape happen. Eve says all she had in the world was Louis and Maddie took him from her. She says she killed all those people to frame Maddie. She says Maddie is not her sister; she's a vicious little you know what. Maddie gave her no choice but to kill Louis.
Maddie screams, "Those kids lives meant nothing to you?!" Eve says they didn't matter, but Casey was different. He had to die; then she would have taken someone away from Maddie that she loved, just like she took Louis away from her. She reaches for the knife, they wrestle, Maddie gets the knife away.
With the sheriff's deputy assisting them, Margo and Tom are frantically looking for Casey. They find him lying in Maddie's arms. When Maddie says her sister is the killer, the cop shines his light the way she points and Eve is gone. As she runs through the woods, she runs into Jack and tries to tell him that Louis is The Slasher. He doesn't buy it, he grabs her hand, sees the blood on hit, puts her in handcuffs as Henry walks up, she starts cackling madly, laughing at Henry, saying the look on his face is worth it all. Henry is blown away. Eve says, "Here we go, poor Maddie, I'm standing here in handcuffs, but how is this affecting Maddie!" She asks him why he never worried about her like he does Maddie. She is crazy, she asks Jack how he likes the wine she sent him. Jack leads her to the cop car. They come upon the ambulance putting Casey inside. Eve asks Maddie if she told Margo, who is standing next to Maddie, that this is all her fault. Henry tells Maddie he's going to get her to a doctor, he tells her it's over now, Maddie tells him that Eve said it's all her fault, and she hugs Henry, says that nothing will ever be the same.
At the police station, Eve tells Jack he's really doing a good job, she tells everyone in the police station that she and Jack had what you call a connection as she laughs.
At the hospital, after Casey tells Margo that Maddie was not the killer, as Margo and Tom watch him being carried into an examination room, Maddie and Henry arrive. Maddie says "Casey, please be ok."
