The show opened with Charlotte suffering a violent attack and rape by an enraged male stranger, cause unknown. Once he left, she climbed to her feet and staggered to the hall, leaving bloody hand prints on the walls and hand railings as she aimed for a closet where medical supplies were stored. She was reaching for something on an upper shelf when she was discovered in the closet by Pete, a fellow doctor and Violet's husband. He helped her to a hospital room, putting her on the bed and treating her considerable wounds: broken wrist and hand, long gash on one arm, two black eyes, etc. He wanted to get staff to help, but she said no, that she only wanted her friend and fellow doctor, Addison, Sam's girlfriend. Addison was summoned and was truly shocked to see Charlotte in such a state. Charlotte would not tell Pete what happened other than she was attacked in a robbery, that her purse was stolen and that her assailant had fled the scene. She didn't want the police, but they were summoned anyway because doctors are required by law to do so. Charlotte would only tell the police that she had been robbed and beaten and when they insisted on more details, Addison told them that was enough for tonight and chased them from the room...
