Dylan says, “Tell us who gave you that medication so we can protect you.” She claims she met Dr. Neville in the park and he told her to take the drugs or she could die. She says Neville was the only one she saw when she woke up. They ask where she woke up. She lies that she was in a hotel room and doesn’t want to answer more.
