Will Ruby’s attack come back to haunt her?

Ruby chose to take revenge in the department store after watching her boss make a move on Tamara. There’s no way she was going to accept a man like that in her life, and with Christina’s promise of Ruby getting away with anything, she used it to her advantage to get revenge.

But she changed in front of her former boss. Will he talk? It would be embarrassing, but he also has a chance of taking down the woman responsible for the attack. I’m just not sure who will believe him that Hillary is a Black woman.

Will Ruby lose a part of who she is?

Ruby started to struggle to find a balance between herself as a Black woman and her new white counterpart. She tried to offer Tamara some advice, but she also made a comment about her lack of education to the white women. It was only when they retorted with a comment about the entire race that she seemed to remember herself.

Ruby made choices to discard the white suit, almost as if she was trying to remember who she is. However, she’s taken actions that could lose a part of who she is. She’s hurt someone purely for revenge because she could. How far is she willing to go now?
