To know what happened...

Hola,

I found the following example from one of the questions for the El imperfecto de subjuntivo.  

Tal vez supiera qué fue lo que pasó aquella noche.
Maybe he knew what happened that night.

Would the following be correct too? 

Tal vez supiera lo que pasó aquella noche.

 Does the meaning change at all?  If I wanted to say "I know what you did yesterday" would it be "Sé qué fue lo que hiciste ayer" or "Sé lo que hiciste ayer"?

Hola Jamie,

both sentences are correct. One is simply longer than the other:

I know what it is/was you did yesterday. = Sé qué es lo que hiciste ayer.

I know what you did yesterday. = Sé lo que hiciste ayer.

Saludos
