Upon hearing about the sordid incident from Tom, Mrs Hughes summons Edna to her office, with Tom present. Edna believes Tom and Mrs Hughes are going to try to buy her off, and insists she will accept nothing they offer because she wants her child, if she is going to have one, to grow up with a father.
 
Upon hearing about the sordid incident from Tom, Mrs Hughes summons Edna to her office, with Tom present. Edna believes Tom and Mrs Hughes are going to try to buy her off, and insists she will accept nothing they offer because she wants her child, if she is going to have one, to grow up with a father.
   
However, Mrs Hughes tells her there will be no offer because there is no child. When Edna insists no one can know if she is pregnant or not, Mrs Hughes asks Tom if he really thinks Edna would have let herself get pregnant before she was sure she could have him. She reveals Edna knew how to prevent a pregnancy with the help of a book she found among Edna's things. Furthermore, she reasons that once Edna had what she wanted, namely Tom's word to marry her, she would have made sure she became pregnant by using another candidate.

Furious that Mrs Hughes went through her things, Edna tries to stand her ground, saying Mrs Hughes could not prove anything. Mrs Hughes threatens to summon a doctor to examine her if she persists with her lie. Edna says she cannot be forced, to which Mrs Hughes refutes that by warning that she would lock Edna up, hold her down, and strip her if that is what it took. Edna claims that Tom still seduced her, and Mrs Hughes reminds Edna it was she who got Tom drunk, then climbed into his bed, meaning she was in no way seduced.
