Janet tells her daughter that she was “run out by intruders.” She informs Amanda that Jamie came to investigate the place because he does not trust Amanda.

She remembers that she stabbed him because she needed to protect herself and her daughter from him, and she’s afraid she might have killed him. She says she’s afraid that this is all a bad dream.

Erica explains to Jack that she believed that Michael Cambias was there and she had to fight him. Something happened to her.
