Even though Patrick showed up at her house threatening her family, Annie still decided to go public with her identity. But revealing that she wrote the scandalous memoir Undressed affects more lives than just her own. When her identity goes viral, Patrick's marriage is ruined. So he makes good on his promise to hurt her family, only it's not Dixon he targets. He stashes cocaine in Annie's half-brother Mark's luggage, causing him to get arrested for drug possession.
Even Liam, dubbed "Leo" in Annie's book, is affected by her reveal. He and Navid go to great lengths to sponsor a high school surfing star, including hosting an Olly Murs concert with only one day's notice. But when the surfer's mother/manager finds out that Liam was featured in Annie's book, she forces her daughter to back out of the deal. Not all publicity is good publicity.
