On Fargo Season 5 Episode 8, “Blanket”

Dorothy is forced back to the Tillman ranch by Roy and his men, but Officer Witt sees her at the hospital with Roy and believes she is in need of help, so he warns Danish and Officer Olmstead. 

Witt tells Danish and Indira about Dorothy and Indira tells Lorraine, but Roy and Gator have threatened Witt to not come onto their property or they will kill him. 

Danish comes up with a plot to sabotage Tillman’s sheriff election campaign, but when he confronts Roy offering to call it off in exchange for Dot, he gets shot for his trouble.

Standing up to Roy and trying to escape causes Dorothy to be abused mentally and physically. Dorothy tries to enlist Gator to help her escape, saying that she can take him to his mother, Linda, but he refuses, calling her a liar.
