After the Blackout
She gets the Japanese kanji 信 tattooed on her left wrist because it is there in her flashforward.

("Believe") Ironically, unknown to either of them, Bryce was on the same plane as her, flying back from Tokyo where he had tried unsuccessfully to find her. ("Believe")

They become friends and sit together at a restaurant, unaware that Bryce Varley and Nicole Kirby are right outside.

Shortly afterwards, ICE raids the automobile repair shop, arresting Gutierrez for illegally employing persons without an I-9 form and detaining his workers, including Arahida. ("Queen Sacrifice")
