In the movie Friday the 13th:A New Beginning, Roy is the one who is pretending to be Jason Vorhees and is the killer of the movie. But in the last scene of movie why is Tommy seen with a knife and wearing a hockey mask? What is the significance of this scene? Is it connected to its sequel or is there any other explanation?

I also read the whole story of sequel Friday the 13th Part VI:Jason Lives on Wikipedia but nothing strikes my mind.

After digging a little, I found this link which states:

Ultimately, Tommy killed Roy in self-defense and exposed his true identity; nonetheless, this event seemed to push him over the edge, leading him to attack Pam while donning a hockey mask fortunately, however, Pam managed to return Tommy to his senses and help him recover before things went too far

In movies this scene got cut, but this cleared my mind about this question.

Maybe because Tommy was actually the killer... :S Or, the producers of the movie just wanted to say that the story will never end: there will always be someone replacing the 13th Friday killer. In this way, even if Tommy did not kill anybody, he may be crazy enough to kill someone in the future.
