Hannah invited Amy and the player to watch a roller derby match between the Helter Skaters and the Pacific Pixies. Suddenly, during the match, Amy and Hannah witnessed the captain of the Helter Skaters, Susie the Slayer, knocked unconscious by Pacific Pixies player Mona Middlefinger, which temporarily halted the game as medics arrived to ascertain any possible injuries. Amy and the player then rushed to the rink, and the former quickly realized Susie was not unconscious, but dead. Thus, the deceased was brought to Roxie for an autopsy, as Amy suspected that Susie had been poisoned. The autopsy soon proved Amy was correct. The following investigation led to the incrimination of one Barbara Pickley, the victim's mother-in-law.
Barbara was very conservative-minded about the perception of women, and though felt that Susie's death was a difficult decision to make, she believed that she had no other choice. Barbara loathed roller derby skating, and watched as Susie made new friends and stopped listening to her advice. And when she found out from Becky Walden that Susie was flirting with Lenny Spitfire, Barbara feared her daughter-in-law would have abandoned Howard Pickley one day. And even if it had not come to pass, she proclaimed it led to by Howard ogling other derby girls because of Susie. So in order to protect her "lump" of a son, Barbara rigged Susie's drink bottle with Rocket Cow, confirmed by Roxie as the murder weapon, given Susie's medical records showing she was allergic to caffeine. In her eyes, it would have not only prevented her son from being heartbroken, but also made him stay away from the derby girls. The last thing she said before being taken into custody, was she wished the player succeeded in mentoring Amy Young where she failed with Susie Pickley.
Judge Dante lambasted Barbara for domestic homicide, along with how badly she had covered her tracks when she murdered Susie. Barbara defended her actions, saying she had to protect Howard at all costs, though she admitted tidying up was never her strong suit. The judge decreed her overly pampered son and her lack of cleanliness were not mitigating circumstances, and thus handed her a 25-year jail sentence.
