Harrison is confronted by James about what has been happening, and he is urged to stop getting involved because doing so simply makes matters worse. Sophie takes a bath and gets in the water to immerse herself. At least on the surface, it doesn’t appear to work. On the other hand, the dripping tap is really bothersome. Sophie makes the decision to discard some of her belongings since she doesn’t understand their emotional importance and wants to get rid of excess items she doesn’t need. James is urged by Sophie to support her through this because she thinks the two of them will be stronger for it. Hannah is happy with Sophie’s development back in therapy. Hannah acknowledges that she had no prior experience with this case and wasn’t even convinced it would succeed. However, it appears that it has, and Sophie thanks Hannah before leaving.

It is becoming more and more obvious that Sophie holds James responsible for the passing of Baden. She is under the impression that he is the one who revealed Baden’s true name to the individuals he was looking into. As she starts to feel suffocated in the life that they have established together, the resentment begins to rapidly rise within her. On a random morning, she borrows James’ car and heads in the direction of the beach. Later on, James receives a call from the cops, who inform him that the call is about his wife. When he finally gets to the port, the officer tells him that they discovered Sophie’s possessions strewn across the middle of the bridge. They inquire of James as to whether or not his wife had suicidal thoughts. James is compelled to provide an honest response regarding Sophie’s history of suicide because Sophie’s belongings have been recovered.

It seems that Sophie took her own life as a result of the remorse she felt over Baden’s passing, but James is unable to let go of the matter.  In the interest of her own safety, Caroline (Ari Graynor) also removes herself from his life. She is still deeply in love with James, but she has come to terms with the fact that their relationship will inevitably come to a tragic conclusion for her. In the morning, Caroline arrives to console James, saying she has done this before and that she might return. Not only that, but Hannah also thinks Sophie may have killed herself because she displayed all the warning indicators before leaving telling the truth, being too joyful, etc. After that, Caroline expresses her gratitude to him for returning the cash that she had loaned to him. James has come to the conclusion that Sophie is still living and that she is currently hiding from him somewhere in the world.

James struggles to reorganize his life as a result of this. Harrison questions James about Sophie’s behavior, but James responds angrily, pointing out that he was the one who pulled the trigger, killing Baden and ruining his marriage. Knowing that Sophie would defend him and not his colleague, James took the fall for him since he didn’t want Harrison to spend the rest of his life in prison. After what was bound to be an argument between Harrison (François Arnaud), their friendship was permanently severed.

James learns yet another shocking revelation at home. It turns out that Caroline owned the $3 million in that account. James arrives at the bank agitated. He discovers there that the account containing that money is fake. James acknowledges that Sophie might have stolen the cash and fled. James successfully logs into Sophie’s Apple account and finds a video she uploaded. She casually informs him that the two of them are not compatible. Since he was stalking her, the phrase “one innocent man died because of what you did” carries a lot of weight. Since James lies and altered their lives when Sophie wakes up, Sophie feels that James is deserving of everything.

More about Sophie’s behavior is revealed via flashbacks. She actually discovered a blue key on it. This was from a storage facility across the street. When she gets there, she discovers a single bag on the ground. A phone, some cash, and one contact Eliza Huntleyare also contained in that bag. Tess’ passport is also included. She has all she requires to flee. Eliza Huntley (Millie Brady ) was a close friend of Sophie or Tess when they were younger. The fact that they had a romantic relationship is strongly inferred from the evidence. The recollections that Sophie has from her youth and early adulthood are those that she has from her time spent in England, and they’re the first of her recollections to come flooding back to her. The conclusion suggests that Sophie made an attempt to leap off the ship on that particular day in order to reach the storage container where she had stashed away pieces of her history, but an accident occurred, and she was pushed into the blade of the ship instead. In the current day, she discovers that the key to the store room was secreted away in the outfit that she was wearing on that day. After she has acted as though she had passed away, she travels to the storage unit, where she gathers the relics of her past, and then she travels to London to face the unknown.
