Butcher's motivation? His wife is raped and murdered by a supe.
Annie's motivation? She's raped by a supe.

Butcher thinks she was raped, but in the show the video evidence leans towards consensual. We might find out next season.

Annie? That's sexual harassment, not rape. She could have walked out, but then Wave threatened to have her tossed out of the seven. It's still being a complete jerk nad it could be sexual assault, depending.
