High School[edit | edit source]
Annie and her family moved from Kansas to Beverly Hills, California to live & watch over her grandmother, Tabitha. She and her brother Dixon are subsequently enrolled in West Beverly Hills High School where their father Harry attended school and is now the principal.
Upon moving to Beverly Hills, Annie left behind her childhood friend & boyfriend Jason and got the lead in the school play. She also reunites with her summer fling, Ethan Ward, but was disgusted with him when she learned that Ethan was cheating on his current girlfriend Naomi Clark.
Annie took an interest in her new school's current musical production which put her at odds with Adrianna Tate-Duncan. She also becomes quick friends with Naomi, but their notable differences led to a falling out and a short lived rivalry between them.
She also became friends with Erin Silver even though Silver was offended when Annie left her to spend time with Naomi & responded by making Annie the latest subject of parody on her blog. She later apologized to Annie by helping her win a part in a school musical.
Silver eventually confided that she used to be friends with Naomi as well which ended after Naomi betrayed her by revealing a secret about her father.
After Jason broke up with her because of their long-distance relationship she began seeing rich boy, Ty . Early in their relationship Ty took her on a surprise date to San Francisco. Though she was punished for the rash action, she remained drawn to Ty, and kissed him at the end of the second episode - just as Ethan began to express interest in her once more.
Eventually, she began to distance herself from Ty when she believed Ethan to be available, Silver however advised her that pursuing Ethan wouldn't be wise, as he and Naomi were likely to reconcile. When it became apparent that Naomi was still a priority to Ethan she attempted to rebuild her relationship with Ty - only to find that he'd begun moving on. She persisted in trying to win him back, apologizing with cookies and a kiss. Ty soon declared that she is "adorable," and they got back together. She later became the understudy to Naomi's best friend, Adrianna, who'd been dropped from the school play due to her irresponsibility.
A resentful Adrianna decided that she needed to get revenge on Annie and decided to lie to Ty and say that Annie was seen leaving with Ethan, which wasn't true but this act made Ty jelaous and he agreed to sleep with her. When Annie walked in she heard Ty in the shower and saw Addrianna in a towel drinking champagne. It is later reavelaed that Ty wasn't in the shower, but that Adrianna just put on the water, hinting that he never slept with her. Annie then broke up with Ty, and reluctantly agreed to help Adrianna with school work at the request of a teacher. The two girls later attended a fashion show that Annie's mom had helped produce, where they met a film producer who recognized Annie from the play. After accepting an offer to read for the small film, Annie introduced the producer to Adrianna, who was then given the same opportunity. Afterwards, a grateful Adrianna expressed her appreciation to Annie, and revealed that she'd staged the incident with Ty. Annie then walked away from Adrianna in anger. She later apologized to Ty for assuming the worst of him, and the two chose to continue their relationship as friends.
Following a break-up between Ethan and Naomi, Annie and Ethan were soon paired up on a school assignment. She later saw Naomi attempting to dispose of Adriana's drugs, which subsequently caused Naomi's brief arrest. She and Ethan later gave their support to Naomi, who was eventually freed. While watching a movie, Ethan and Annie nearly kissed, but were interrupted. As Naomi and Annie grew closer, Naomi revealed that she was beginning to value their friendship. However, she also admitted that Annie's growing closeness to Ethan was likely to make things awkward. Therefore asking Annie to not date Ethan. When the West Beverly homecoming dance neared, Ethan stated that he wasn't quite ready to ask anyone. He did suggest, however, that he and Annie spend time together after meeting at the dance. The two ended the evening by kissing outside of the building.
Annie soon learned that her dad had recently learned of a son he'd fathered during high school with Tracy Clark, Naomi's mother. She and Naomi would later discuss this. Though both found the situation odd, it initially had little impact on their friendship. However, after seeing Annie kissing Ethan later, Naomi became highly resentful. To retaliate, she lured Annie's old boyfriend, Jason, to town, and made out with him at Annie's birthday party. The girls then had a private confrontation. Naomi, citing her growing frustration with the many betrayals and surprises in her life, and she was unrepentant for her actions. Angered, Annie revealed that she'd intended to tell Naomi about Ethan, but she had been waiting for the right time. Both then declared that their friendship was over.
In the midst of the argument they were interrupted by the arrival of Sean Cavanaugh, a young man claiming to be the son of Harry and Tracy. Annie and Debbie eventually began growing suspicious of Sean's identity, particularly when Annie overheard one of his phone calls. Sean then claimed that he was being harassed by men who wanted him to pay his adopted father's gambling debt, and that going to the authorities for help would be risky. When Harry and Tracy offered to give Sean the money, Debbie and Annie confronted Harry and requested a paternity test. Sean agrees, but suddenly leaves town the next morning without telling anyone. It was also revealed that he'd received a degree of money from the Clark family.
This led the Wilsons, Naomi, and a reluctant Tracy to conclude that Sean was not who he claimed to be, but someone who'd intended to scam them. Harry was deeply hurt by the reality of Sean's deception, but was comforted by Annie and the others. Afterward, the close-knit Wilsons began to move on. Annie became distraught when she failed to land the lead role in the school's new play, as the part went to Adrianna.
While she and Ethan were later chatting over the phone, he became distracted at the wheel and collided with another car. Upon visiting the injured driver in the hospital room, Ethan, learned that she was a fellow student from West Beverly named Rhonda. As Ethan observed the girl's recovery and began getting to know her, he started to express interest in living life to the fullest and opening himself up to new experiences. This attitude was in contrast to Annie's, as she continually expressed interest in theater, and resisted Ethan's suggestion to explore other activities as well. As Rhonda continued to recover, she and Ethan became increasingly friendly. Unbeknownst to Ethan, Rhonda was developing feelings for him and hiding that she was more healed than she'd revealed herself to be, hiding the truth as she grew fond of his visits.
Later, Ethan chooses to leave the school play which he had entered in order to be around Annie deciding to mainly devote time to pursuits what he felt was worthwhile. Annie begins to grow annoyed by the amount of time Ethan spent with Rhonda following her recovery. Soon afterward, Rhonda reveals to Ethan that she was more healed than she has been letting on and apologizes for the charade explaining that she's maintained being hurt, because she enjoyed his company. The two then agree to be honest with each other from now on.
Annie, Ethan, and Rhonda later had a discussion at the Peach Pit, during which Rhonda revealed that she didn't plan on attending the Valentine's Day dance. When Ethan wondered why, Rhonda relayed a story in which she'd been asked to a previous dance on a secret bet, and then made fun of in public when the truth came out. Afterward, she'd nearly overdosed on sleeping pills while grieving, but had been found in time by her mother. Following a string of botched performances in her theater class, a frustrated Annie eventually uses Rhonda's story as material. She then notices an outraged Ethan looking in from behind her classmates. As Ethan storms off, Annie follows him and expresses regret for her actions. Still angered, Ethan walks away, and ignores Annie's phone calls throughout the evening. After going to the Valentine's Day dance alone, Ethan was surprised to find that Rhonda had showed up after all. As the two began talking, he expressed anger toward Annie, and attraction to Rhonda. At the end of the night, Rhonda kissed Ethan in the parking lot.
Following a pause, Ethan pulled away, stating that the two of them were just friends and that he had a girlfriend. Confused, Rhonda explained that she'd thought Ethan had broken up with Annie due to the resentment he'd been expressing. She also declared that he'd been eyeing her with romantic affection throughout the evening, and reminded him of the pledge to be honest. Ethan stated that he was sorry if he'd led her on, and the two parted ways after Rhonda drove off. When a new school day came along, Ethan exchanged quiet glances with both Rhonda and Annie at their lockers.
Ethan began to feel emotionally withdrawn from Annie in the coming days, leading to a slow frustration on her part. This negativity eventually led her to drop out of the school play. Annie later heard about the kiss that Rhonda had given Ethan, which was overseen in the parking lot. She then confronted Rhonda, who relayed that she hadn't known that Ethan was still committed at the time. Rhonda then told Annie that she needed to talk things out with her boyfriend instead. After leaving Ethan a message, Annie accepted another boy's invitation to join him and others as they hung out in a park. Ethan later found Annie cuddling with another boy, leading to a private argument between the two of them. While discussing the park scene, Rhonda, and the overall status of their relationship, the two broke up. Annie then learns that Silver had gone missing, prompting her and Ethan to search West Beverly for clues, the two were later joined by Naomi.
While Annie and Naomi searched through Silver's locker, friendly feelings resurfaced between the girls. After learning that Ethan and Annie had broken up and that Silver had been safely found, Naomi chose to bury her ill feelings toward Annie and they started their friendship over again.
Annie accompanied Dixon on a trip to Arizona, learning that he was looking for his birth mother Dana. Along the way, he explained that he'd chosen to be adopted out of resentment for his mother's bipolar disorder, unaware at the time that it was a true illness. Annie approached Dana alone, as a remorseful Dixon realized that he wasn't ready to face her yet. It was then revealed that the adoption had actually been Dana's choice, as she thought it would be for the best. Annie informed Dana that Dixon was indeed doing well, and was told that Dixon had always wanted a sister when he was younger.
Afterward, Annie shared Dana's words with Dixon, raising his spirits as they left. When Naomi's dad Charles was faced with a lawsuit, he forced Naomi to leave the hotel she'd been staying in for the sake of his appearance. Annie then offered to let Naomi stay with her family, Naomi accepts. Prior to moving in, Naomi had begun a relationship with Liam, an underage bartender and student at West Beverly. During a double date with Naomi, Liam and his cousin, Liam privately asked Annie out. Annie declined and informs Naomi of what had happened.
Naomi would later move out of the Wilson's house when her older sister, Jen, returned to town.Following a party, Liam brought an intoxicated Dixon back to the Wilson home, where Annie chatted with Liam, who expressed interest in her once again. Claiming that she wasn't as much of a good girl as she appeared to be, before leaving he admitted that he is curious as to what lies beneath her surface.
At the West Beverly Prom, rumors began to spread that Annie had "narked" to her father of the students secret plans for the after-prom party. Naomi then hosted the party at her house against her sister's wishes where everyone was free to drink illegally. Upon finding Liam half-naked upstairs, Naomi declared that their relationship is over, and mistakenly believed Annie to be the girl he slept with. Unaware that her sister had slept with Liam to be spiteful for Naomi holding a party at her house.
After being openly humiliated by Naomi and the other students with grudges towards her, a shaken Annie leaves the party. She then calls the police to report underage drinking, and takes a bottle with her before departing. While driving wearily the next morning, she becomes distracted and her car then collides with someone or something on a desolate road.
Annie is paranoid about her hit-and-run accident at the after-prom party. She becomes obsessed with finding out the stranger's fate. Her paranoia left her snapping at her friends and family. When she learned that the man died in the hospital she became overrun with guilt. She tries to confide in Dixon, but when he guesses that her problem has something to do with Naomi’s accusations about Annie sleeping with Liam at the after-prom party, she flips out. She winds up at the end of summer beach party drinking with a senior and following him into one of the beach cabanas. The death of Annie’s hit and run victim is still haunting her, but that’s no longer her only problem. The boy she had a drunken fling with at the end-of-summer party took a naked picture of her, and now Naomi has a copy.
Even though both Annie and Liam deny having slept together at the after-prom party, Naomi refuses to believe that what they are saying is the truth. Naomi enlists the help of a school nerd to teach her how to send an anonymous text so she can spread the naked photo around school. When the picture gets out, Annie is horrified. She hides in an empty classroom, where a TV set is airing Navid’s interview with new student, Teddy Montgomery. When Navid asks Teddy if anything bad has ever happened to him, Teddy reveals that he found the victim of a hit and run accident lying on the road before the start of the year.
Annie’s problems just keep getting worse. After learning of the sext scandal, Annie’s mom starts to tell her that “being intimate with someone is a big deal” and points out that sex for girls in high school is more likely to damage the girl’s reputation than the guy’s. Instead of accepting her mother’s well-meaning advice, Annie lashes out at her mom claiming that she is just bitter, because she has no sex life. Harry, overhearing this, grounds Annie on the spot.
When Debbie disagrees, Harry admonishes her for being soft and says that sometimes the kids need a parent more than a friend. Just when she thinks the whole hit-and-run incident has been swept under the rug, West Beverly High School receives a generous $100,000 donation made by the so-called “homeless man” that Annie hit with her car on prom night. It turns out that the man’s nephew, Jasper, goes to her school. Seeing his grief is more than she can bear, so she apologizes to him for his loss. Reaching out, Jasper asks Annie to go for a ride together.
The two wind up stargazing on the dashboard of his car. Then Jasper reminds her that they had a lovely night stargazing and he'd love to go get some "Dim Sum" with Annie after school. Annie seems hesitant, but Jasper explains it was a place his uncle used to take him, and because of the guilt she is still feeling she agrees to go along. Annie is really starting to enjoy Jasper’s company and asks him to go to a movie. But then Mark, the jock who she hooked up with at the end-of-summer party, warned her that Jasper isn’t a good guy. He’s dangerous and Annie’s starting to rethink her newfound friendship. She cancels their movie plans and tries to avoid Jasper at school. Annie thanks the jock for the tip, and he asks her to hang out. But neither notice Jasper lurking in the shadows watching Annie slip into the car with him. Mark takes Annie to a rooftop picnic. But things go from romantic to creepy when Mark starts to put the moves on Annie. She tells him to stop, but he won’t. Luckily, Jasper shows up in time to pull him off. Now Annie is in Jasper’s debt, but just because he saved her doesn’t mean he’s not dangerous.
For Halloween Annie has inspired Jasper to come out of his writer’s block and finish his screenplay, making Jasper dub Annie as his muse. He wants her to star in his movie as well and Annie happily accepts. Jasper brings Annie to the Beach Club to film the scene of her stealing a car that’s in valet parking. But instead of doing the logical thing and using his car as the one that’s about to get “borrowed”, Jasper wants Annie to take someone else’s car, his reasoning being that it is a motivational for Annie’s character to feel free and vivacious. Annie continues to date Jasper, that is until Navid reveals that he has a credible source, that says Jasper is a drug dealer. Annie blows off Navid's claims, but she can't help to notice Jasper's big wad of cash that he always carries around on him. She then mistakenly blurts out the question and Jasper loses it! He tells Annie that he never questioned her when everyone thought she was a slut and can't believe she would question him. Jasper declares their relationship is over and leaves Annie in downtown LA, alone. Jasper goes to the Hollywood sign to shoot more footage and Annie is there crying. Jasper accepts Annie's apology and demands that she never doubts him again. Annie agrees.
Later, Jasper gets a text and he tells Annie that he will be right back and that he has to get some equipment from his car. When he gets there, Jasper pulls out some pills revealing that he is in fact a drug dealer. Annie squeals in joy when Jasper reveals that he arranged an audition for her through his dad.
While Jasper helps Annie practice her lines she tells him that she loves him, only for him not to reply back. But to Annie surprise Jasper tells her that he loves her too, he had just wanted to say it first. The next day, Annie is informed that she didn't get the role and is distraught over it. Jasper optimistically tells Annie that her day will come and that she will be "big" one day. Annie then realizes that she wants her first time to be with Jasper.
At the Wilson house, Dixon is still acting upset over whats happened and Annie has a new lease on life, that is actually a leash. Debbie and Harry ask reluctantly what brings "rosie" Annie back and she tells them about Jasper, and ask if he can come to dinner. They happily accept and Annie runs upstairs to tell Jasper, who spent the night.
While prepping for dinner with Jasper, Dixon comes out with an attitude being brash and rude towards Annie. When she tries to ask him what his deal is, he claims that he doesn't want "weirdo Jasper" hanging around. Annie lashes out at Dixon for his hypocrisy citing Sasha's age and unstable mind. Dixon gets pissed and reveals what Navid told him about Jasper being a drug dealer. This stuns Harry and Debbie, but they don't have time to react cause Jasper is at the door. Debbie and Harry attempt to pry at Jasper's social life, which causes Annie to blow a gasket and she loses her mind and snaps at how ignorant the students of West Beverly are.
While Debbie and Harry are unsuccessful at calming her down, Jasper is, but in a way that clearly shows Debbie and Harry that Jasper has a hold on Annie's mind so tight that he has strangled any sense from it. While Debbie and Harry go set the plates, Jasper senses the discomfort from her parents and she says that it may have something to do with the drug dealer rumor. Instead of letting the rumor slide, Jasper creepily reassures the Wilson's that he is not a drug dealer, just someone who loves Annie a lot. But it's not enough for Debbie and Harry to buy, because after dinner ends and Jasper's gone, they forbid Annie from seeing Jasper. She immediately reports to Jasper what happened and he tells her what's done is done and she should just relax. But he angrily throws his phone across the room in a fit of rage.
Annie tells Jasper about Navid's condition, but Jasper is so on edge that he snaps at her to get to the point of whether or not Navid remembers anything. She tells him that she doesn't know and he walks off. After talking to Adrianna, Jasper goes to make up with Annie. Later that night after Annie back-talks her parents, they ground her.
The next day she whines about not being able to go to a chemistry study group due to her constraints. Debbie offers to drive Annie, but Annie who claims she will find another way home. After Debbie drives off, Jasper pulls up and the two go to the beach. Debbie finds Annie's chemistry book while washing clothes and she confronts Annie about her lies, but Dixon strolls in and says that he misplaced his chemistry book, saving Annie. Dixon, fresh off taking down Jen, apologizes profusely about how he hasn't been a good brother to Annie. He then reveals to Annie who slept with Liam and the two bond over the revelation.
The school is abuzz with the Winter Wonderland dance being around the corner. But Annie's over the whole dance thing and tells Jasper that her love for dressing up is a thing of the past. Then Liam pulls Annie to the side to apologize to her about the crap he caused, but Jasper shows up wanting to know what's going on. Liam leaves and Annie vents to Jasper that the reason she and her friends are fighting is because of Jen and she can't imagine someone being so evil. But Jasper doesn't like to hear that Annie has free will and reminds her of all the bad things the cool kids did to her. Annie still says she kind of misses it all and then Jasper asks her to the dance.
While Jasper goes to get Annie and himself a drink, Dixon pulls Annie into the away where all of her friends (Navid, Naomi, Silver, and Dixon) try to explain to her that Jasper is bad news and that he is a bad person. Annie of course doesn't buy it. It takes Adrianna who over heard the intervention to come clean and says that Jasper is no "Prince Charming" and that she is willing to testify to prove it. Annie's mind is blown and she tears up and declares that she needs some time to herself. At the end of the night Annie confronts Jasper about what she's heard. He denies it at first, but he comes clean when Annie demands the truth. She also gets him to stop lying about not pushing over Navid. He tells Annie that he is sorry and Annie says she is sick of all the lies and demands for them to stop. Jasper said that he made mistakes and she made some, too. When Annie asks what the hell does that mean, Jasper declares that while he "accidentally" pushed Navid down the stairs, Annie accidentally ran over his uncle.
In Rats and Heroes, Jasper approaches Annie at school about how much he misses her, to which Annie disses and attempts to reinforces their breakup, only for Jasper to threaten to out Annie to the cops for murdering his uncle, if she doesn't fall in line immediately.

College[edit | edit source]
At the beginning of the fourth season Annie wanted to go to Paris with her mother but she waited all summer for Liam to return. Suddenly Liam is back from the high seas and wastes no time committing to Annie by slapping a ring on the hood of her car but Annie turns him down. Meanwhile Marla's family decides to contest her will, which means Annie has to defer for a semester from Carnegie Mellon. She now has to stick around Beverly Hills and moves into Naomi's mansion. At Naomi´s party Liam shows up with a second proposal but Annie turn him down again, the classes tarted at CU so Naomi and Annie applied to join a sorority but only Annie gets in, while Annie continues to flirt with upperclassman Jeremy, meeting him for coffee, and revealing details about her relationship with Marla. It turns out Jeremy is related to Annie's deceased benefactor, and he uses the information Annie provides against her, claiming she's responsible for Marla's death for having failed to tell anyone that Marla was suicidal.
Now that her inheritance from Marla is in limbo, Annie is broke and struggling to pay for important college needs, like sorority dues. A sympathetic sister takes pity on her and invites her to dine out with her "rich friends," whom she promises will pick up the tab. She fails to mention that her supposed friends are actually clients paying for the coeds' company, until she hands Annie a wad of cash. Annie's grossed out by the transaction, comparing it to prostitution, but when she learns her cut has covered her sorority fees with extra cash to spare, she decides to keep the money. After Holly leaks the letter she found in Annie's room, Annie seeks revenge by throwing the Greek games and making way for Naomi to win. Holly immediately kicks Annie to the curb, which means Annie can't get the Kappa scholarship she's had her eye on. Suddenly the idea of being a paid escort becomes a lot more attractive to her. In Party Politics She helps Silver and Navid in their desperate need to hook up by agreeing to babysit Leila, despite the fact that she has an escorting gig on the same night. Annie takes Leila to her date night and Leila figures out Annie's secret, and though she promises not to tell anyone. Bree gets Annie a escort date. Annie goes to the date, but is surprised to see only 1 guy there, so she abruptly leaves.
The next day, Bree tells Annie that her date, Patrick, asked for her to go to lunch with him. She says no, but Bree mentions that he asked for her specifically and he has her coat so she agrees. Patrick then takes her on a helicopter and later to a museum, where they seem to develop a connection, which results in a kiss. Annie later goes over to his hotel room, not as an escort but as a date; technically, Annie’s still an escort and dating one of her clients. Annie and Patrick begin arguing, because Annie feels like Patrick is still paying for her and treating her like an employee, rather than as a girlfriend. Patrick keeps trying to impress Annie and even brings Perez Hilton over to help Annie with her term paper on celeb bloggers. Still feeling like he's paying her to be with him, Annie breaks up with Patrick.
Patrick later shows up at the party to woo her back in a barrel costume and they make up. Annie's thrilled when she discovers Patrick's in Vegas for a business conference and decides to surprise him there, but she's crushed when she spots him with another woman. Things only get worse for Annie when she finds out that Dixon has been hiding a drug addiction, and vows to get Dixon to rehab. Annie had decided to break up with Patrick because he cheated on her in Vegas, but with Dixon's rehab costing $40,000, she tries to forget about this, knowing she needs Patrick's money to reach the $10,000 deposit. She tries to play nice with Patrick for Dixon's sake, but ends up confronting him about catching him cheating in Vegas. Patrick shows no remorse, telling Annie she's "special to him," but that he has different women in different cities and he thought they were in an open relationship. Initially, Annie breaks up with him for good after this, but when she fails to raise the $10,000 on her own by auctioning her stuff online, she goes back to Patrick, essentially telling him she's fine with exchanging sex for money. Hence, they go back to their previous "open relationship".
The next morning she wakes up to Patrick leaving a $10,000 check on the bed. Annie becomes a nervous wreck as she fears that her secret escort profession will be found out. Since Annie previously lied about getting her inheritance through, Naomi thinks it's time she starts paying rent. Concerned and worried about another expense she can't afford, Annie approaches Marla's grandson Jeremy and proposes they split the inheritance. Jeremy considers the offer and starts cataloguing Marla's estate to decide how it might be split, but notices the necklace Marla gave Annie is missing. Annie's lawyer asks her to return it, but when she reveals she sold it to pay for college, he tells her that could pose a major problem for her case. The fact that she sold it makes it seem like she was only after Marla's money all along, despite this not being the case.
Annie tries to buy the necklace back from the jewellery store owner she sold it to, but she's too late; Jeremy's already purchased it. Patrick offers a broke Annie a trip to Hawaii to meet up with another of his girlfriends, which would result in some much needed money. Annie seems disgusted by the idea, but hesitates due to her need for money. However, Liam interrupts her, and Annie ends the phone call. The two of them talk and end up sleeping together, on the couch no less, though Liam knows something's up with her. Annie doesn't tell him about her escorting. However, that night at Vinny's poker party, Liam finds out the truth about Annie's escorting from Bree and runs to stop her from going to Hawaii with Patrick. Annie, meanwhile, finally finds a way to manipulate Jeremy into revealing his true colours to earn her inheritance.
Just as Liam is racing to find Annie and she is professing her love on voice mail, he gets hit by a car on his motorcycle and the other driver calls it into the cops and bolts. Annie goes to see Liam in the hospital. She said she wanted to come back from Paris and visit him, but she didn’t know how because of him discovering her escorting secret. Vanessa then shows up and he says she’s been there every day since the accident. Vanessa goes to take him home and also lets slip that she didn’t give her license plate info to the cops. Meanwhile, Annie tells Dixon she got Liam’s bike fixed as a surprise. Dixon drops off Liam’s bike for Annie and then Liam and Vanessa show up. Liam says it’s too much and Annie says she hopes they can start over. Well, he doesn’t want to so he leaves with Vanessa to go bungee-jumping. Annie then tells Dixon that the mechanic said Liam’s bike was hit by a maroon car but Vanessa said it was hit by a black car. Vanessa then drives off in her maroon car. At Annie's New Year's party, she decides that she needs to move on because she's holding Liam back from moving on. He then goes and kisses Vanessa; ultimately choosing her while Annie announces that she has decided to attend Carnegie Mellon. On the way into her flight, when asked for her ID Annie realizes that she must've switched her bag with Vanessa's at the party by mistake. In Vanessa's wallet Annie finds multiple fake IDs to states all across the US and decides to stay to protect Liam from con artist Vanessa.
In the next episode, Liam and Vanessa are chatting at the bar about tattoos and such, when Annie comes by asking for Liam’s copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance for Dixon. That is of course, a lie, as Annie just wants to get Vanessa alone so she can tell her she knows everything and to stay away from Liam. Vanessa tells Annie she’s got no idea what she’s capable of and Annie tells Vanessa she won’t tell Liam about her IDs if she leaves. Later, Annie comes by looking for Liam and Adrianna tells her that Liam and Vanessa went out of town. Annie says she has to find out where they went and tells Adrianna about the car/ID situation. Adrianna says that Annie could be wrong and could be pushing Liam away. Annie then shows up out of the blue. Annie used Liam’s GPS on his motorcycle to track him and tells Liam about Vanessa’s criminal record. Liam then defends Vanessa and basically calls Annie nuts and tells her he is not her responsibility.
Annie’s escort friend, Bree, asks Annie if she can stay at Naomi’s since the fire burned down her sorority house. Bree also tells Annie that the police are still investigating her. Annie brings Bree over to Austin & Dixon’s and asks if Bree can crash there and Austin says she can. Later on, Ivy mentions to Annie that the cops came by Naomi’s asking about Bree. Annie then goes to Dixon to find her and the cops show up. They actually came by looking for Dixon and Austin because of an anonymous tip about the fire. They find lighter fluid under Dixon’s bed and place him under arrest. Dixon tells Annie that he thinks Austin set him up, but then he mentions that Bree told them about the fire so Annie leaves to go find her. Annie finds Bree and asks her if she set up Dixon, she did. Bree was scared of the investigation into the escort ring so she set her client list on fire in the bathroom. She tells Annie it’s a win-win, since she won’t be going to jail and Annie won’t get kicked out of CU. She also thinks that Dixon will just get community service. Austin comes back to his apartment and Annie tells him about Bree. She also tells him that she’s going to go to the police and admit she’s an escort so she can bring Bree down and set Dixon free. Later, Dixon comes back and Austin tells him that he started the fire by burning old love letters and he’s gonna turn himself in. He says that he’s got nothing to lose.
Annie starts working on a benefit with the foundation to save Castillo Bay. The benefit is going smoothly, until a woman asks if she can interview Annie.
