But when Gail meets Joana's aunt Mona, it turns that she's her old friend Ramona who was her friend in high school whom she had falling out with with years ago, and Gail is unaware what caused it. Gail feels like Mona is trying to thumb her success in her face. When Marni learns that Joana does remember her she sets to expose her to her brother.
