Hours later, Tom arrives at the lake house. He tells Emma that he was summoned by texts from her phone and that Mark was facing disbarment for illegal activities at his practice. They both realize that Mark sent the messages to lure Tom just as a mysterious truck is seen approaching the house. Emma hides while Tom greets a man named Jimmy from the truck. Jimmy says he's there to fix the plumbing and refuses to leave despite Tom's attempts to disuade him. Jimmy's brother, Bobby, then gets out of the truck and stabs Tom to death. It's revealed Bobby was a stalker who once attacked Emma and just got out of prison after serving 10 years.
Emma makes it to the SUV again as Bobby pursues, dragging Mark with him. She hits Bobby with the car but then crashes into the boat shed. Emma exits the car and fights Bobby on the frozen lake. She stabs Bobby in the shoulder just as the ice gives way. Mark's corpse falls into the lake, dragging Bobby with him. Bobby manages to grab Emma and pull her in as well. As they sink, Emma grabs the knife out of Bobby's shoulder and stabs him in the eye. Mark's body drags Bobby down to his death as Emma swims up to the surface. Lying atop the ice, Emma removes her wedding ring and lets it roll into the lake as sirens are heard approaching in the background.
In a review for Common Sense Media, Jeffrey M. Anderson said that "after a shaky start, this taut, vicious horror/thriller crackles to life with a dark sense of logic, a harrowing depiction of mental and emotional abuse, and a woman's boundless strength ... it ultimately makes more sense than any Saw-related deathtraps." The previously mentioned MovieWeb review called SK Dale's debut "brilliant" and said, "He nails the Hitchcockian aspects of the narrative." Tomris Laffly, of RogerEbert.com, called the film "undemanding, a little silly, but a thoroughly engrossing and handsomely paced edge-of-your-seat experience all the same."
Harley, accompanied by Ivy, goes to Joker's lair to break up with him, but he spins a tale about how he left her in Arkham to shelter her from increased police scrutiny. He then offers to take her back because their love was "more powerful" than the threat of death. Harley jumps at the romantic manipulation, and they then have sex while Ivy leaves in disgust.
Incredibly, the Joker chooses to save Batman to deny Riddler the satisfaction of killing him. Batman is set free to chase after him, while Harley is released into the vat. While submerged due to Joker's betrayal, Harley remembers that Joker didn't actually propose to her; he only said "till death do us part" because he left her as a suicide bomber to defeat Batman, a fate which Batman saved her from.
Societies make their own history, but they do not make it as they please. They do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given, and transmitted from the past. Understanding the historic shifts in the values, attitudes, beliefs, and laws linked to marriage can provide happily married couples cause for appreciation of what they now have. It can also give those in unhappy relationships fortitude in the face of social pressures which keep them in a relationship that has become dysfunctional. Until death do us part is certainly beautiful poetry. And yet history shows that when high aspirations cannot be reached, especially when our lives are now so much longer than the culture which first created that verse, we ought not to deny ourselves the freedom to start fresh due to social pressures.
The team's investigation into the death of Hannah Bloom, who died at her own wedding, is put on hold when her father refuses to allow them to perform an autopsy until after his daughter's body is blessed by a rabbi. Danny and Mac turn their attention to the woman who trained the doves who were supposed to be released, but cannot tie her directly to Bloom, who died from formaldehyde poisoning. Stella, Flack and Aiden investigate when a hand is found deep underground, and soon realize that the dead man, Rick Amadori, chewed off his own hand.
Danny tells Mac he went over the alcohol from Hannah Bloom's bridal suite, but that he didn't find any poison in it. The hypodermic needle was from botox injections. There were no signs of poison in the suite at all. Hawkes is still waiting for the rabbi to arrive in the morgue to begin his autopsy of Hannah Bloom, but when Stella arrives he's able to give her an ID on the body of the man from the monastery: Rick Amadori. Amadori bled to death, but he was also suffering from hypothermia and starvation. Hawkes also shows Stella marks on Amadori's knuckles that indicate he punched someone recently. He also points out that Amadori had surgery in jail after being stabbed, and that the tip of the weapon is still lodged in his stomach.
Mac and Danny cut open the dead doves from Hannah's wedding and find their insides covered in cleaning products. Their deaths were not accidental. Della Fallon, a worker at the hotel, is the one of the only people who had access to the doves before the ceremony. At first, she stonewalls Danny and Detective Maka, but finally admits that she killed the doves out of resentment: it was her idea to use them in wedding ceremonies, but the hotel owner and the head of catering took all the money from the idea. She denies killing Hannah, and says the cleaning solution wouldn't have killed the woman.
The CSIs bring in Mulcahy's son, Connor, for questioning. Following the death of his father, Connor was placed in foster care. His prints were all over the car and the gun, and though he denies to Stella and Flack that he took the car, he admits to killing Amadori, claiming he waited for the man to be released from jail and then killed him. Stella and Flack search Connor's apartment, where they find clippings about Mulcahy's murder. Stella isn't convinced despite Connor's confession, and she argues with Flack, who wants to take the evidence to the District Attorney.
Though state officials have long lamented the high death toll for women, lawmakers have put little money into prevention programs and have resisted efforts to toughen penalties for abusers. This past year alone, a dozen measures to combat domestic violence died in the Legislature.
