Vincent thanks her and also wants to know if she would like to meet him later at night. Cat is surprised and tells him that he turned away from her the moment he saw Alex.

He wakes up after a while and tells Alex that she has been fooled by those people. He tells her that she should trust Cat. But Alex feels that Cat doesn’t want him to be better. Cat arrives and Alex draws a gun that Claire gave her because Claire knew that Cat would come. Cat tells her the truth. Cat tells her that it was her mother who made Vincent and she was killed for it. She urges Alex to trust them and let them go. Alex agrees.
Claire arrives and Alex tells her that Vincent escaped. Claire then draws her gun to kill Alex. But the beast jumps at Claire and knocks her down. He then runs away with Alex. Alex is at the warehouse. Alex apologizes for her foolishness. But she now knows that she can finally let go off her past and move on. Cat arrives with a fake id and tickets for Alex. Alex tells her that Vincent loves her.
