Nicole and Allie come to the police department. Rafe updates them about Ava being held captive, potentially by Charlie who may be her son. He adds that Charlie may also be the person who assaulted Allie. Nicole asks a stunned Allie if she saw him in London. Allie can’t place him, but he does remind her of Tripp. Nicole orders Rafe to make Charlie admit what he did to Allie — or else she will.

Though Allie says she’s going home and with Henry, she returns when the coast is clear. She enters the interrogation room and tells Charlie, “I’m not leaving until you tell me the truth.”
