Following CJ's unexpected appearance at the party, it is soon revealed that she was the one responsible for all the bad things that have been happening in Auradon. She kidnapped Ben and reveals him to Mal, tied up from the wrist and ankles. While Mal unties Ben, CJ moves onto revealing her plot. Believing the villain children are destined to be better villains than their parents, CJ made every effort to sabotage the dance in hopes of rallying together the rest of the Villain Kids against Auradon. She admits to stealing Jane's mascot uniform and putting the blame on Mal by leaving her bracelet at the scene. She tried to ruin Audrey and Ally's dress, only to have her plans foiled by Mal and Evie.

Appalled that none of the VKs wish to join her cause, CJ declares herself to go solo in her reign of villainy. She then flies off on a magic carpet, assuring to return. Freddie apologizes for what she did and Mal forgives her. Jane asks if they should go after CJ, but Mal says it can wait. For now they go back to enjoying their Neon Lights Party.
