At the football match, Emily gets the chance to question Gabe. She asks him who Charlie is. Before Gabe answers, Emily tells Gabe that she never asks who calls him or about his work but there is something that Emily can’t put her finger on, each time Gabe gets a call it puts him on edge and Emily can’t understand why. Gabe tells Emily Charlie is a name he uses to protect him and his family, however, just then Gabe’s phone rings again. Is Emily and Lori as safe as Gabe hoped they would be?
