   Bill is living with his girlfriend that Charlie meets at the end. Billy's girlfriend is replaced with his wife who Charlie never meets. The relationship between Bill and Charlie is also not as close.
   Charlie and Sam get naked and are about to have sex when Charlie is reminded of how his Aunt Helen touched him that way. He feels sick and eventually has a breakdown that lands him in the mental hospital. They are kissing and Sam touches Charlie's leg and he remembers his Aunt's touch. They don't get naked. He spends the night but goes home the next day and remembers everything. He calls his sister and tells her that he killed his Aunt. She calls the police and they go and get him and take him to the hospital.
