At Sonny’s, he asks Anna where she’s going. She wants to go to the hospital and explain things to Valentin. Sonny states that’s the last thing she should do. He doesn’t think Valentin has been given enough time to process what happened and hear an explanation from her. Dante soon arrives, and Anna asks if he’s here to arrest her. He’s not, he’s here to discuss the content of Charlotte’s backpack.
Dante again asks Anna if she locked her door, which Anna insists she did and when she found it unlocked she assumed there was an intruder. Dante tells her one of the things in the backpack was a key with a shoe keychain. She says it sounds like the key Maxie gave her, and the last time she remembers having it was at Valentin’s and Charlotte was there. Dante reveals there is more, there was a can of spray paint that matches the color and kind used to spray paint “murderer” on her door.
Sonny says that doesn’t prove much, and it was Halloween and she is a kid, so it could have been part of a prank. Anna believes the person targeting her is ruthless enough to use Charlotte to get to her. She insists she has to talk to Valentin and takes off.
After Anna leaves, Sonny doesn’t think a WSB agent told Charlotte to go after Anna. Dante doesn’t know what to think, but Charlotte has had a complicated life. He says the evidence is pointing at Charlotte as the one targeting Anna.
