After discovering a woman named Jessica Whitman planted the weapon in Alec's bag, Dan and Theresa try to discover who paid her to plant it. After discovering someone did indeed frame Alec, he has to be released which is what Theresa had to do. Dan proposes to Theresa and she says yes. They have an engagement party and are set to be married. After Nancy tells Theresa someone's been leaving flowers at Derek's grave every night, Theresa thinks it might be the killer's guilt. After her rehearsal dinner, Theresa goes to the graveyard to watch who leaves the flowers, but Sutton calls and tells her she has information she'd like to hear. After seeing someone run off, Theresa finds flowers at Derek's grave, she turns to see someone and yells "You!?" and her fate is unknown. When Theresa doesn't show for the wedding, Dan and Ethan go to her home and finds her ring on the counter. Dan is convinced that Theresa was threatened for digging deeper into Derek's murder. In the Grave Truth, it's revealed it was Ted that Theresa saw at Derek's grave. He explained to Theresa why he left the flowers and left after that. After missing for two days, Sutton receives a phone call from Theresa's phone and all she can hear is someone breathing at the other end. When the police trace it, Theresa's body is discovered floating in the pool at the club.
