Anna, aka "The Signal of Setauket," is the heart of the four friends comprising the Culper Ring -- ready to do whatever is necessary for the cause. Anna even passed up the opportunity to leave Setauket with her husband at the end of Season One, electing to remain in danger, out of loyalty to her country and her love for Abe. In the second season, Anna's affair with Abe runs its course, but she continues to watch out for him as his co-conspirator in the ring. Anna encourages Major Hewlett's romantic interest in her to gain influence over the enemy, but is drawn in by his humanity and starts to care for Hewlett. Anna even resists Abe's plan to kill him in the Season Two finale.
Season Three finds Anna's loyalties further divided as Hewlett becomes even more of a threat to Abe. Not wanting to see Abe hanged as a spy, but unwilling to see Hewlett sacrificed either, Anna embarks on a third way, a risky course of action that jeopardizes her own position.
