Fig. 4. First background for young, smart anchor-woman for regional news programme.

Based on what we already know about Sally's character, it is unlikely that she will give up without a fight or that there is any future in her relationship with Mark. She has never put family or friends before her own needs. She is a loner who was forced to take control of her own life from a very early age and is not going to be pushed around by someone who is trying to manipulate her for his own ends.
