Deputy Paul Hemmings arrives and Julia expresses her doubts about the death and feels she is the next target. Paul decides the only way to protect her is to stay by her side. She asked him to keep her secret safe about the Safe House. In the midst of being hunted, Julia finds herself drawn to this rugged, yet tender man.
