She tells him that she and Edward talked about him all the time. She tells him that his grandfather was proud of him and misses him. Edward wishes they were closer. Jason tells her that it was clean and easy in the beginning. Edward wanted to control him and he had to rebel against him. He says that Edward didn’t need him; he had Alan, Justice, A.J., Lila, and Emily, but now they are all gone. Sam tells him that she thinks Edward needs him and he needs Edward too. Jason tells her that at times like this he thinks about the secret that he is keeping. He knows how much it would mean to Edward if he knew he had a great-grandson. He confirms that he will never tell anyone that Jake is his son, but it is crazy that they both could have died tonight, neither knowing that they are connected to each other through Jason.

He admits that the family has had problems with alcohol. She tells him that even if he had a couple of drinks, there is no way that he could have been drunk enough to drive straight down the carnival midway. She says maybe the accelerator got stuck, the transmission went into overdrive, or the brakes got stuck. Not noticing that Edward has opened his eyes, she tells Jason she doesn’t know, but it must have been something major to do all that damage and hurt that many people.
