When Addison realizes that Charlotte is planning to follow Cooper’s request to help Evan, she calls the police. Frank is arrested and Evan is returned to his mother and stepfather. Cooper is released from jail and Charlotte realizes that Addison is the one who dropped the dime. Cooper tells Addison that all she did was put a child in harm’s way. When she tells him that she’d do it again, he’s at a loss. Frankly, so are we.
Evan is admitted to the hospital with a stab wound he claims was inflicted by his stepfather. As it turns out, Evan did it to himself. Charlotte discovers that there was never any abuse. Evan lied to get his stepfather to go away. Things snowballed and he didn’t know how to get out of the situation he created. This latest lie was just an attempt to get his dad out of jail.
When Charlotte relays this information to Cooper, he doesn’t believe her. It’s obvious that he’s still resenting the fact that she kept her first marriage a secret. Charlotte says that the reason she doesn’t talk about it is because she doesn’t want to go back there. She’s happy where she is. But he still can’t get past the fact that she lied.
