By 1999 in the new timeline, Jack had murdered 7 more women, including John's mother, who had saved his life, and Jack's own loving mother. Frank and John attempt to stop the murders in the past, but Jack catches on, beating up Frank and stealing his driver's license to place on his latest victim and frame Frank for the murders. Near the end of the film, he attacks both John and Frank "simultaneously" in 1969 and 1999, and after handcuffing Frank, attempts to rape his wife. When Frank frees himself and aims a shotgun at Jack, he takes a young John hostage, threatening to snap the kid's neck.
