Whilst at the dock with her mother, the two of them bump into Sheryl's friend Ray Ferrier and his kids Rachel and Robbie. Rachel discovers a tripod on the nearby hill. Ray tells Sheryl and Nora to stay with him as the group attempt to sneak on the boat with many others. However, Sheryl loses grip of Ray and is unable to make it on the boat, leaving her and Nora stranded on the dock as the tripod attacks.
- It is unknown what happened to Nora or her mother, however, it is most likely that they were either killed by the Tripods or taken prisoner by them to be harvested. However, there is a small chance that Sheryl and Nora managed to survive, but this is highly unlikely.
