'Fifty Shades of Grey' Recap - Refresh Your Memory for 'Fifty Shades Darker'!
If you remember, the last movie began with college student Anastasia “Ana” Steele (Dakota Johnson) interviewing billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for her college paper. It is clear in their meeting that Christian is interested in Ana, and he pursues her by visiting her at her hardware store job. They later meet up for a photo shoot to accompany the article, and then get coffee. Christian abruptly leaves the coffee date, proclaiming he is not the right man for her. Later, Ana receives a gift of two first-edition Thomas Hardy novels, from Christian.
At a bar with friends, Ana decides to call Christian to tell him she is returning the two novels, and is not pleased with his behavior. Christian shows up at the bar as Ana passes out. She wakes up in a hotel room, but finds out they were not intimate.
Ana and Christian decide to begin seeing each other, and he insists she sign a non-disclosure agreement. It is then that Christian reveals his sexual inclinations involve BDSM. Ana and Christian have to negotiate terms for a Dominant/Submissive contract, and she reveals she has never before had sex. She visits Christian’s “Red Room of Pain” where she is introduced to all of his toys and gear, and they have relations for the first time.

Christian and Anastasia’s relationship heats up and she is showered with gifts like a new car. While meeting Christian’s family for the first time, Ana mentions that she is set to visit her mother in Georgia, which upsets Christian due to one of the terms in their Dom/Sub contract, which she has not yet signed.
Ana begins realizing that Christian is extremely emotionally distant, and she tells him she does not want a one-sided relationship. It is to Ana’s surprise when Christian shows up in Georgia while she’s there, and he woos her with a fun glider flight.
Ana grows more curious about Christian and his emotional state – and in the Red Room, asks him how he would punish her if she broke any of the rules of the contract. Christian whips Ana’s buttocks six times and makes her count out loud. After this incident, Ana is disgusted and refuses to be with Christian anymore.
