When informed of Frank's death, she was shocked but said they barely spoke to each other.
Nellie was interrogated again regarding a love letter with a key she sent to the victim.

She did not want that to happen mostly because she was scared it would ruin her reputation and she would lose everything.
It was later revealed that Nellie was responsible for Frank's murder. Nellie denied the accusations, but eventually admitted guilt.
