Seven years ago, Toni finds Serge killing Julie under the bridge. He knocks Serge out. Then he drives Julie to a hospital where he leaves her at the doorstep. Afterward, he buries Serge alive. In the present, Pierre finds out that a homeless woman has taken Victor out of the helping hand. He reports this to the police. The police comb the city until they find the woman by herself. Worried, Julie meets Laura at the police station and she recognizes the homeless woman as Mr. Costa's wife. Julie has a conversation with her and suspects that she may have died as well. When Julie returns home, she attempts to jump off the roof because she saw that Victor had survived the fall since he was dead. However, she is stopped by Laura, who appears in the nick of time.
