Her mood worsens when she runs into one of her former friends and finds out that Richard is engaged to be married.
Vanessa goes into stalker mode in an attempt to stop the marriage. She rationalizes her efforts because this new fiance shouldn’t have to suffer from the same abuses. She investigates where this woman lives and make plans to befriend her. Richard finds out about Vanessa’s plot and blocks her efforts.
