Bette dirty secret is that she has a live-in partner, who is revealed to be the one who stole the jewelry in the preceding film. The man steals the baby from Bette and tries to ransom it, but a timely intervention from Orson's family and friends rescues the infant, revealed to be dark complected in contrast to the tone of the mother's paler flesh. Bette reveals that she was using a skin-whitening product and bids farewell to the family.
