After doing an interview with Carol Connors in her dream job in New York, Lanie is told to meet with the president of the network (to discuss her promising future with the network) but she refuses and decides to go back to Seattle to be with Pete. As she is walking down the street, she is accidentally shot by a man who is resisting arrest by the police. Lanie is taken to the hospital, and when she wakes up, Pete is beside her. Jack's prediction of Lanie's death, in a certain way, did come true... because after waking up in the hospital, the part of Lanie that didn't enjoy life died. Lanie goes back to Seattle and lives with Pete and his son Tommy.
