Cynthia (Demi Moore) killed James (Bruce Willis). He tried to rape her in the back of the van at the carnival. Joyce (Glenne Headly) was covering for her the entire time. After hearing her "story," Detective Woods (Harvey Keitel) tells her to go home, telling her he is not going to arrest her right now, because her kids need her more than he needs an arrest, even though he knows she is lying to him. But then when she is about to walk out, she turns around and comes back, the implication being that she is going to tell him the truth.
