Years later, Amanda is doing the best she can to help Tina overcome her guilt and live a life free from institutions. Tina back to their home at Crystal Lake in the hopes that Dr. Crews will help Tina get better. Ironically, despite their turbulent marriage Amanda appeared to show no ill will or hate for her husband. When Tina cries over missing her father, Amanda empathically hugs her daughter and admits she missed him too. This means she may still love him or at least have forgiven him for the past or both.

During her confrontation with the doctor, Tina takes off and the two try to find her. During their search, they encounter Jason Voorhees who chases them and kills Amanda with a brush axe after Dr Crews uses her as a human shield. Her corpse would be later found by Tina Shepard.
