She has moved on, ready to marry her fiance, Jameson, but Chuck refuses to let her live her life with this man who loves her. He resorts to violence (he was violent in their marriage) to try to keep her: stalking her, kidnapping her, and shooting members of her family, thinking these tactics will get him what he wants.
