Back on the topic of Anna, Finn thinks she wanted to open up to him, but he can’t understand why she wouldn’t.
Anna heads to the Metro Court bar, as Andre approaches. She smiles and says, “What took you so long?” It seems the bureau reinstated the memory mapping program and expunged his record in favor of his cooperation. Andre assumes she helped facilitate that, but she denies it. He’s just glad he’ll be working for the WSB instead of Faison this time. She talks about her baby and he asks if she’s told Finn. Anna explains their history working together and that for them to truly be together he’d have to know about her past.

He tells her Faison suffered from a degenerative brain disease which he could have passed on to his children.
