However, it turns out that Dianna is not so bad in her older years and she befriends Shelly, finally getting her a seat at the cool table. Unfortunately, Shelly has to deal with another hit crew hired to kill both her and Dianna, leading to hilarious moments and non-stop action.

Shelly is an original script from writers Michael Doneger and Liz Storm.
