Jennifer hires a new assistant, Stacy Sherman, who possesses a hidden sinister side, as it turns out she has been showing a deranged devotion to Jennifer. Stacy's obsession even leads to her breaking into Jennifer's house and putting a knife into Jennifer's husband, Patrick. Jennifer rushes to home to see Stacy, who tells her that she has killed her husband. However, Jennifer later pulls out a gun from her drawer and shoots Stacy on her shoulder.
At that moment, Jennifer turned heel and revealed her true game plan; her marriage was falling apart and Patrick wanted out, so Stacy killing him is the perfect way to end the marriage without having to give up half of what she has in a divorce settlement. She also told Stacy about her devotion to her and how she's using it to get what she wants, while stating that Stacy has always needed her. After her speech, the evil Jennifer shoots Stacy again, this time killing her. She later deshelvels herself and tells police that Stacy killed her husband and came after her, which is why she shot her. At the very end, however, it turns out that Patrick survived after they find a pulse, and the last scene shows Jennifer with a worried expression on her face, as her evil plan is falling apart. It is assumed, but not shown, that Jennifer was arrested for killing Stacy and for the plot to kill her husband.

- "If you plan it carefully, a good campaign could sell anything to anybody. Planning is always the key for a perfect creative execution, and nobody plans a campaign better than I do, you know that. I wasn't going to let Patrick divorce me and take half of everything I worked for; my home, my savings, my stock options, no way! (Stacy: "No! You loved him!") Once, maybe. But he's wanted out for a while now, and I needed a little time to find a way to get rid of him without losing everything. Time to find someone who was pathetic--someone who needed love, trust, encouragement. Someone who was like you, willing to die for me."
