Back at school, his fellow students taunt him, and his former best friend starts making a true-crime documentary about the case--one that points the finger directly at Hunter. And just when things can't get any worse, Chloe's mother stands in front of the entire town at a candlelight vigil and accuses Hunter of murder.
