Soon after, David noticed that Emily has become friends with an imaginary friend named “Charlie” wherein they had a desire to make their father upset.
David always has nightmares every night at 2:06 wherein in his dream it always shows the New Year’s celebration party before the night his wife died. And when he wakes up due to the nightmares he goes to the bathroom suspecting there is something suspicious, until he found out that there is always a mark on the curtains judging him why did he let her die. Until the 2nd night he checked the bathtub and saw his cat died, here he was very disturbed as her daughter always says that Charlie does it, he did not believe Charlie in the first place as he knew that he is just an imaginary friend until their cat died.

Emily said he just took off and then David rushed outside carrying a knife until he saw their male neighbor who was very concerned, he became very hostile as he suspected that he was Charlie. He got inside his house, then suddenly a door opens slowly, when David came in, he realized all of the past since after his wife died, and that from the New Year’s celebration, it showed that his wife cheated on him that’s why he killed her.
He then knew that he has a split personality or a Dissociative identity disorder, he then knew that Charlie wasn’t real, it was him all along. As his neighbor called the sheriff, the sheriff then knocked at their door and got in when no one opened. He then was surprised by David as David knocks his head by a shovel, he was dragged unconscious in the basement. When Katherine visited, she then noticed that David was acting kind of weird, and then she was pushed by David in the basement too and locked it. Katherine saw the sheriff and knew that David has the problem not Emily.
She then grabs the sheriff’s handgun and kicked the door and looked for Emily with precaution to David as they played Hide and Seek with Emily wherein when David finds Emily he will kill her with his knife. They then got into a cave near their house where Emily first met Charlie who comes out to be David. She then found David rather than Emily, David knocks her off as he got near her then as David squeezes Katherine’s throat Emily then screams and caught David’s attention. David then go near Emily slowly and then blinking his flashlight every 5 seconds.
