Before they find Lee they visit Bill in the asylum to bring him home and hopefully he will tell Jake what they were doing. But Bill is a changed man. He no longer believes that Jake is from the future. He thinks it was all in his head and if he talks about it he’ll get shock treatment. And as Jake signs his release papers he jumps to his death from the window.
But finally and just in time Jake remembers why he came to the past and what he needs to do. At one moment he gets cold feet and asks Sadie if they should just let the past have its run, leave it all and move to a small house and stay there forever. Sadie says no and that is that. Jake also has a moment where he thinks he sees the Yellow Card Man who tells him that he’s like Jake. He also went back in time but not to save the President. He’s trying to save his daughter from drowning in their pool. Each time he fails though and ends up watching her drown over and over again.
