After everyone else had left Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, Clay and Betty decided it would be better for Carlton to leave the city for a while, so Betty took him to his sisters house. Clay took advantage of his sons absence and began to work. He got his team to take Officer Dunn's body and discard everything else in the pizzeria. Not daring to disarm them or set them free, Clay left the animatronics of the pizzeria in his basement. Betty, realizing what her husband had done, had a strong argument with him. The next morning, Betty left the house and never returned.
The Freddy Files Description: "Business partner to Charlie's late father, William Afton was also one of the prime suspects in the missing children case from ten years ago. Though he was never officially charged, William left town quickly and his current whereabouts are unknown."
The Freddy Files Description: "The once beloved mascot of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is a far cry from this eerie, twisted animatronic that seems designed for a much sinister purpose."
The Freddy Files Description: "As a child, Jessica was partial to Bonnie due to his "understanding look," and she often confided in him her childhood troubles. But the Bonnie that appears in The Twisted Ones is far from understanding."
The Freddy Files Description: "Like the face, the body was smoother than animatronics that Charlie was used to. It had no fur, and no tail or other animal appendages. It was too large for a human being to wear, probably eight feet tall when standing. Still, Charlie couldn't shake the feeling that she recognized this creature. Foxy."
The Freddy Files Description: "A wolf's mane ran over the top of its head and down its back. It was stooped over. one arm twisted downward while the other flailed up. Perhaps its control over its limbs was uncertain... Yet while the eyes held a steady light, the rest of the creature was in flux... One moment it was a groomed and agile figure covered in silver hair, the next a tattered metal framework, partly coated in rubbery translucent skin."

Charlie is living on campus with Jessica. John also lives nearby doing some business as a construction worker after a huge storm destroying some parts of the town of hurricane, and Charlie starts dating him. She also meets a new friend named Arty.
One day Clay Burke comes to see Charlie, and brings her to see a corpse with familiar wounds. She confirms the wounds are those of a springlock failure. He also tells her a blood sample from William showed it was fake blood, and his body was never found. She later finds another body that looks a lot like her, and Clay lets her visit the victim's house. She finds three grave-sized holes in the backyard. She tries to keep this a secret, but eventually it slips to John and Jessica.
Charlie and Jessica go to Freddy's again, which has been half-obliterated by a hurricane in Hurricane. In a secret storage room they find William in the Spring Bonnie suit, completely lifeless. They pull him out to examine him, and then leave.
Charlie begins to have nightmares about Sammy, and his spirit draws her to her old house, to look for some sort of "door". She and John go there, and they find a secret room that was exposed by the storm. In it are three holes. In a mound of dirt from one of the holes they find Twisted Foxy, who tries to kill them. They beat him, and he changes appearance to a more normal Foxy. Charlie takes a disc out of him, that when turned on makes him look scarier. She realizes that the device disorients you via audio frequencies high enough to force hallucinations on the brain. As a result, it makes you "fill in the blanks" with what you think you should be seeing. Charlie and John think Foxy is a monster, and see him as such, but kids would see a cartoony mascot. The disc is inscribed with "Afton Robotics, LLC".
Charlie, John, and Jessica plot the homes of the victims and the spots they died on a map. They connect in a straight line that leads right to Charlie's dorm. They along with Clay go to the spot that the animatronics should attack next. At the spot they find three more holes, but they're filled with dirt. Charlie digs one up a bit, and uncovers the head of Twisted Freddy. She realizes the animatronics are burying themselves during the day so they don't get seen. Clay evacuates the area, but misses one house and the person living there gets killed by Twisted Wolf.
Charlie knows the robots are coming for her, so the next night she sneaks to the place they should show up next. She thinks they might have something to do with Sammy. Twisted Freddy finds her and captures her, and she ends up in a storage tank.
At daytime he buries himself, and Charlie ends up in an abandoned, destroyed restaurant. It looks similar to Freddy's, even having a poster of Freddy and Bonnie. She finds Balloon Boy, and thinks he's cute. Then, she starts hallucinating a bunch of BB-like children chasing her and screaming. She hides in a storage closet, filled with new animatronics like a brown rabbit and an ape, along with severed human body parts.
John, Jessica, and Clay find her here. They accidentally let the Balloon Boys in. Clay shoots out one of the lights, and the BB-like hallucinations calm down. He shoots out a few others, and the illusion breaks, leaving just a bunch of BB animatronics.
William Afton reveals himself, having watched them the whole time, naming himself Springtrap. He outright says he controls the twisted animatronics and can see what they see. Once Charlie and Jessica set him free, he had them bring Charlie here. Charlie asks why he took Sammy, to which he replies "I didn't take him. I took you". He also says he needs something from her. The abandoned diner starts to collapse, and Springtrap seemingly escapes. The classic animatronics arrive at the abandoned diner and utterly destroy Twisted Bonnie and Twisted Wolf. As quickly as they came, they left. Twisted Freddy does not get destroyed.
Twisted Freddy comes back, and the gang runs from him. They go back out into the lights, and everything goes insane. Everything looks like a cave with spirits flying all over the place. Once the illusion breaks, she finds a secret door, believing it's what Sammy wanted her to find.
However, John knows that they whole place is about to collapse and she'll die if she opens the door. She steps away from it, and Twisted Freddy catches her. Twisted Freddy's head is torn off, but Charlie is captured inside, and suffers a springlock failure inside of him. Police officers force John and Jessica to leave. The last thing John sees is Aunt Jen, holding Charlie's lifeless arm.
John and Jessica meet Marla and Arty in a diner to tell them Charlie died. "Charlie" drives up to the diner, looking very strange. John and Arty share a grim look, and John says "That's not Charlie."
