After a failed attempt by Jacob to get Alma to change her own past, she finally learns that Jacob had not been murdered but had purposefully driven himself and Farnaz off a cliff. Jacob decides to possess his past-self in an effort to change the past and promises to meet Alma at a pyramid in Mexico when the timelines realign. In the present, Sam and Camila attempt to convince Alma that she is schizophrenic as was her father. Alma breaks up with Sam, travels to Mexico, and spends the night at the pyramid waiting for Jacob.

After Becca leaves and the sun rises over the pyramid, Alma is shocked by something she sees.
