"She sensed something important were happening and certainly that Bump meant her no harm."

 

When reading the sentence aloud I'm convinced that WERE sounds better, however someone reading it has told me that WAS would be better as in:

 

"She sensed something important was happening and certainly that Bump meant her no harm."
