Jeff tries to convince Haley repeatedly that he is not a true child predator or a bad person at heart, and also tries to guilt trip her for her questionable actions, despite evidence late in the film that clearly appears to contradict these claims. Both also gaslight each other in the beginning by seemingly conceding to a professional relationship when they both have malicious intentions towards each other.

[SPOILER]

The character Jeff commits suicide by affixing a noose to a feature on his roof and walking off the edge, but this is technically a death by hanging and not a death by falling.

Haley, who is supposedly 14, holds Jeff hostage and psychologically tortures him in slow detail, and seems to take a bit of pleasure in doing so while showing no remorse or self-doubt in her actions. Jeff also tries to confront Haley with possibly violent intentions in the last half hour.
