Bill tells her that he doesn't feel right about it. He tells her that all of the people in her life will recoil from her. She will lose everyone. Pam tells him that he is a hero because now he is a maker. She says that he gave her the ultimate gift--eternal life. He says that it doesn't seem like she was ever human at all and he takes that as a compliment. She then kicks the girl into the grave buried.
