The little girl, who just turned 11, has a strange pyrotechnic ability, which she increases when she gets angry. One of her last episodes causes a reaction of such magnitude that it allows the agency to discover her location. This makes Andy and Vicky fear the worst, but Charlie doesn’t seem like she’s going to sit idly by and she’ll do her best to stay by her parents’ side.
