Emma goes over to Will's house, with some Mike & Ike candies, to watch The Expendables with him, while he recovers from being stabbed. Once outside his house, Emma gets a phone call that's presumably from Will. The two begin their conversation and Will tells Emma there has been a change of plans, and to come and find him. Emma begins to get suspicious, so she asks Will what they had to eat on their second date, needing confirmation that she's actually talking to him and not the Lakewood Slasher. Once "Will" says he doesn't recall and that "this is going to be a date to remember", Emma realizes it's the Lakewood Slasher she's talking to. Emma refuses to play more games, but the Lakewood Slasher assures her that the game is still continuing and she's in the bonus round. Emma explains that she did everything that was asked of her, and demands to know what the Lakewood Slasher did to Will, but he points out that he wanted her to "have a little pride" instead of forgiving Will's lies, just like Daisy did years ago. Then, the Lakewood Slasher admits he doesn't forgive easily. Once again, Emma demands to know what the Lakewood Slasher did to Will, but he corrects her by saying "It's what you're going to do that's the real bitch." Then, the Lakewood Slasher suggests Emma run. Emma drops the candies, running out back, spotting Will. Will is tied to a chair with his mouth taped shut, and behind him is a large, trencher that's turned on. Emma runs to Will, only to trip over a trip wire. The trip wire was attached to a lever in the machine, forcing the lever downward as Emma's foot triggers it. The lever pushes down set the front of the saw-like machine into a downward motion, sending it right through Will's skull and then body (Off-screen).
