Gloria goes to the Chancellor Estate and asks for Jeffery. Jill tells her he is busy. Gloria tells her she is a mean woman for telling her he died. Jill makes Gloria think that Jeffery told her that this isn’t the first time she tried to kill someone. Gloria denies anything but Jill tells her that Jeffery confessed it to her on his death bed and a death bed confession is always true. Gloria says he didn’t die and he swore to her that he would never tell anyone. Jeffery comes in and Gloria asks him how could he do this to her. She says she gave him all her money and everything she had after he told her they would just go their separate ways and put the past behind him. She looks at him and asks him does he need to destroy her that much. She puts her hand over her mouth and then runs out.

When he gets there she tells him that Jeffery told Jill that she was the one responsible for the face cream incident and now she is going to go to prison.
