- "I have lost two children to this war and countless other people I've loved, as we all have. And if it takes my own death and the death of these three brave men next to me to get you back to fighting the real enemy instead of your own people, well, then... so be it. I hope when this war is over, that each one of you finds your humanity again. It's not only what we've been fighting for, but it's what makes us fight. It's what makes us fight. Thank you, 2nd Mass."

Story[edit | edit source]
Post-Invasion[edit | edit source]
When the attack started she was working a double shift at the hospital where she worked. She lost her son Sam and husband Lee during the initial attack. Her only remaining family was her Uncle Scott and her Aunt Kate. She joined up with Massachusetts Militia, and volunteers her skills to the cause. She met Tom after he assisted her with a patient. She is now the Field Physician and Nurse for the group, helping others with their pain and kids deal with their losses through therapy, as a sort of healing for herself.
Throughout the day, while most of the fighters are out defending areas of the city or looking for supplies, Anne worked with the kids through art therapy. She was happy noting that Matt Mason, Tom Mason's youngest son, was making breakthroughs by drawing pictures of his whole family, even though he went through the trauma of losing his mother and his brother to the enemy. That night, while serving food out to the returning fighters with her assistant, Lourdes, she spots Tom carrying Matt away from the group to get some rest. She approaches him and lets him know about the progress Matt's been making. She is shocked to find out that the enemy had taken Back Bay and South Boston though. Before she could say anymore, Tom is called away...
The following morning is filled with energy as the 2nd Mass begins to move out, shepherding the civilians away from Boston. Anne and Lourdes are preparing the last of the wounded and crippled to be moved, when Tom finds them. Lourdes informs him that they sent out the last of the stretcher cases and are finishing up now. Tom, surprised, compliments the doctor saying that she's good, which Anne modestly replies 'Practice makes perfect.' She tells him that there is a silver lining in all this, as if there wasn't a war that she would be giving flu shots and dealing with neurotic mothers. Tom smiles and replies by saying he would be grading midterms, or rather trying to avoid them. Anne smiles, then shows worry on her face and asks what the plan is. Tom is quiet for the moment then says they are retreating, regrouping, returning, and then getting their revenge, and then walks off, leaving Anne to ponder the new plan.
Later, she begins moving medical supplies and approaches her Uncle Scott and Aunt Kate, who are working on a truck, asking if she should load them in bags or the truck. Scott says the truck and continues working on it, while Kate leans out the window, looks at Anne skeptically, causing them to agree and say bags. As if on cue, Scott fixes the problem and the engine sputters to life, causing him to turn at the two disbelievers. As they move away from the city, Anne is walking with Tom, when she recognizes a house that one of her patients lived in. She points it out to Tom and tells him that her husband has a landscape painting there. Tom smiles, and then points out that 400 years ago, Native Americans lived here before Small Pox wiped them out. Anne says "Ever the history professor'" and then wonders what will be here in another 400 years. Tom answers optimistically "Hopefully Humans".

Anne is working on scavenging from the store, when she overhears the conversation between Weaver and Tom, and approaches him. She asks him is he is sure about taking a small group back into enemy territory for food, but Tom doesn't answer, and asks her to look after Matt. She says she will, but before she can say anything else, Hal walks up to his dad, saying he's coming with him. Tom turns him down, wanting him to stay with the group, but is convinced when Hal says Weaver is more likely to get him killed. Karen, eavesdropping on the conversation, shouts out that he needs two scouts. Tom relents and tells them to find Dai, Click, Anthony, and one other to come with them, leaving Anne, who prays that he will return unharmed. After Tom's group returns, she and Lourdes help Matt celebrate his birthday by giving him a cupcake and candle to make a wish.

Anne realises what flowers is needed, and she makes a tea for Lexi to drink.
Anne, along with Tom are the first to find Alexis in her cocoon. After learning from Tom that he had seen Anne in one on the Espheni ship, Kadar proposes that he do a therapy that will help Anne remember it. Anne agrees, and is injected with a drug. Her memory takes her to the night her son, Sam died. She wakes up, and realizes she needs to go down deeper. She injects herself with 6ccs, twice the amount Kadar says. Kadar says she may never wake up, and she goes under again, to find herself aboard the Espheni ship. She sees herself in the cocoon, and Karen is holding Alexis saying that there is no need for Anne, she will be disposed of. Alexis appears, and shows Anne a memory of her own. Karen tells Alexis to come with her, but the young Alexis goes to Anne and touches her cheek, telling her to "wake up". The younger Alexis does this again, with the older Alexis copying it. Anne awakes, and runs to her daughter in the cocoon. Anne says they have nothing to fear from Alexis, and touches Alexis' cocoon, which earlier burned Weaver's hand with no pain at all. In the cocoon, Alexis' hand moves to where Anne's hand is, only with the cocoon dividing them.
Anne looks into the cocoon and places her hand on it, but it doesn’t burn her. Alexis opens her eyes, which are now green, and places her hand over Anne’s, then starts to break her way out of the cocoon. She emerges in a bright white light, and momentarily faints before waking up and recognizing Tom. She says she must leave because humans are violent and will not change, even though she tried to show them another way. Anne asks her about what she said in Anne’s vision, about always choosing her family, and Alexis says, “…not this family.” Anne soon witnesses Lexi walk to the courtyard, freeze everyone using her powers and kill Lourdes.

Weaver calls Anne over to help, but she can’t do anything as it is too deep, and Dr. Roger Kadar dies after telling Tom to save Alexis and never let her go. After the sweep for survivors is complete, Anne hides in the fallout shelter with the others until the forces pass.

Matt is frantic to find Tom, as Anne finds the scarf that Tom wore in the Ghetto and in the aftermath of the Espheni assault. Hal manages to find and get Maggie to Anne, who says Maggie is paralyzed from the neck down. Hal asks if Anne can do anything. Anne shakes her head, saying he has to let her go. He proposes they somehow use Denny's spike ability on her, as it will heal her before she can die, because Denny has faster healing. Anne says a transplant is risky, Hal argues they took spikes off kids in Charleston, to which Anne replies they had better equipment in Charleston, but maybe the Volm have something. Cochise explains that a procedure like a spinal tap can be performed but that it can be deadly if not done properly.
