She confronts the Moulins and asks them about Abby. The husband says that Alex was supposed to be taken to the farm but he was never there and later they were told by the police that he committed suicide. He believes Charlie’s father killed him. The wife, however, claims that Alex was a weak child and must have thought of suicide as an escape.

While returning back to Canada, she is caught by border security and it is revealed that Abby had been in Arizona, Phoenix for 18 months and pretended to have retrograde amnesia. But she was then disbarred from the US. Abby’s mother had rescued her and paid for her legal formalities as well.
