Anastasia "Ana" Steele (Dakota Johnson) has begun her new job as an assistant to Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson), an editor at Seattle Independent Publishing, who appears to show more than a casual interest in Ana. That evening, she attends Jose Rodriguez's (Victor Rasuk) art gallery show and is shocked to find Christian there. With some reluctance she agrees to have dinner with him. Christian tells her that he wants her back, but Ana is reluctant as he enjoys inflicting pain. He insists that he has changed and would agree to Ana's terms of no rules and no punishments if they would resume their relationship. She agrees.
