He had other plans for their early years. The next day, Ana finds out that Christian may have recently contacted his BDSM dominant and ex-lover Elena Lincoln.
Meanwhile, Jack Hyde has been released. He phones Ana. He asks for a ransom for Christian's sister Mia. Hyde wants $5 million in cash in two hours, or Mia will be dead. He warns Ana to tell no one, and bring the money alone. Ana takes out some cash and a revolver. She then goes to the bank and takes out the full amount.
The bank manager is suspicious and calls Christian. Christian thinks Ana is leaving him. But then he notices the coincidence of Hyde's recent release and Ana's sudden cash takeout. Hyde tells Ana to get into a car parked in an alley and give her phone to the driver to discard. But instead, she tricks Hyde by taking the bank manager's phone. She goes out the back entrance. She then learns the driver and partner in crime is her co-worker Liz.
