Whitney offers Joanna a place to stay as long as she wants which she agrees. When Joanna meets Lawrence’s sons she realizes that they are glad to welcome her into their lives. However, the expression on Joanna’s face says otherwise; it indicates that she does not want to join the family.

How does Joanna try to ruin Whitney & her family?

Whitney’s mother urn containing ashes shatters into pieces just after Joanna moves in. At first, Joanna hesitates about admitting it but finally confesses to have broken it. Whitney feels for what Johanna goes through at first and does not hold grudge against her for that reason. When Whitney presents these incidents again to Cassie, Cassie proposes doing background check on Johana for safety purposes.

But Whitneys dismisses the notion. The following day Johana notices Whitneys preparing samples of cosmetics products for Walmart presentation on worldwide stage. During the presentation one of the models suffers from severe allergic reaction which results in facial burns thus turning the whole situation ugly. The deal falls apart leaving deeply impacted brand called Whitneys Cosmetics.

Lawrence suggests cancelling his property meeting so he can be around when she wakes up while whitney tells him joanna and kids can take care of me.

Eric gets suspicious when he sees Johana trying steal Whitney’ s credit card. Johana however threatens Eric telling him forget ever seeing it if you want your mother to remain unharmed. Afterwards, Whitney asks about the missing card and Joanna plays with her mind making it seem like she is accusing her of stealing.

After sending her cosmetics samples for testing at a laboratory, Whitney receives a call from them. The caller says that while most batches checked out fine, some products contained very high levels of sodium hydroxide which is poisonous. This makes Whitney suspect Joanna because she knows she would not have used such chemicals in her products.

Whitney pleads with Cass to run a check on Joanna. The Stepdaughter turns out that Joanna’s real name is Maggie Dillon, and Whitney asks Lawrence about the same who says that Joanna’s grandparents changed her name when she moved in with them.

Whitney explains to Michael how Joanna has been ruining her life, but they fight over The Stepdaughter. As a result, Whitney now believes that the sabotage of her cosmetics line was done by Joanna/Maggie.
