He is dragged from the pool before waking up. The school counselor attempts to talk to Peter, and it is revealed that Peter previously attempted to commit suicide. Peter tells the counselor he was not trying to kill himself and that he doesn't know what happened. As he heads to the party Peter is intercepted by Sam and his friends. Peter says he will not fight Sam, but Sam punches him anyway. After taking a severe beating Peter stands up and fights back. He ends up throwing Sam onto the windshield of a car, killing him. Peter heads into the party looking for Alice. When he finds her, Alice takes him outside and cleans him up. He tells Alice that he killed Sam and needs to leave.
