Rosanna calls Craig a monster. Rosanna suggests they get an annulment ASAP. Craig says sending Lucy away is temporary. Rosanna says she wont allow Lucy to leave. Rosanna tells Craig that he did not leave her on their wedding night because he was angry that she helped Lucy and Aaron, but rather to avoid being arrested for Barbaras kidnapping.
