Estella designs the signature piece for the Baroness’s spring collection show and stages a robbery in the fashion house, which pushes the Baroness to lock up all the dresses in a vault.
Cruella learns that the Baroness is her biological mother; at her birth, the Baroness ordered John to have the infant Estella murdered so she could focus solely on her career and keep her late husband’s inheritance. John instead gave the baby to Catherine, one of the Baroness’s maids, who raised Estella in secret.
When Estella arrives home, she finds Jasper and Horace tied to a chair, as she sees the Baroness holding a lighter, who plans to kill her in a fire and have Jasper and Horace arrested for her murder.
The audience for the spring show all run outside, where Cruella is staging her own show in Regent’s Park, wearing a faux Dalmatian-fur coat to further taunt the Baroness.
On the night of the spring collection show, the Baroness opens the vault to find that thousands of moths have hatched from the very beads that were sewn into the signature piece that Estella made, causing everyone to panic and for the Baroness to realize that she is Cruella.
