Released on parole for identity fraud, Polly reintegrates into her position as manicurist for Nail Artisan of Manatee County while straying away from crime as best to her ability. When an old friend visits her and learns of her facade, she dives into temptation and aids Desna and the girls in furthering their goals.
Polly committed identity fraud, stealing funds from many elderly from a nursing house. During the time, she encountered and befriended Sally Bates, another woman that has conned an older man for money. After a while, Polly is compromised, arrested and jailed.
During this time, Desna paid her visits. One visit, she tells Polly that she was right about joining in the operations, saying that one of the doctors had "retired" and that Roller had some sort of dark side she fears. Through the conversation, they tell each other that if something were to happen to them--their life were at risk--they would use the code phrase "ambrosia salad" to mean they needed help.
Before New YearsEdit
Returning to Nail Artisan of Manatee County, Polly is given a surprise party for her release. After Virginia's arrival, the women prepare for another busy day in the salon. Roller pays the salon a visit, asking Polly how she was doing.
Reunited with the PastEdit
to be added
Much of Polly's personality is positive and upbeat, presenting herself as a "preppy" archetype. She often expresses love and shares her own insights learned throughout her life. She also tends to be a compulsive liar, shown to share untrue stories that skew from her actual background. It is unknown where she picks up her much darker side. Polly can become slightly aggressive and brazen in matters that display her loyalty to her friends and allies; willing to fabricate a crime or blackmail former acquaintances she feels have wronged her.
- Lillian Marks (Sister)
- Marnie (Adoptive Daughter)
After witnessing her neighbor attempt to solicit her own daughter into prostitution, Polly, through an effort of trading valuable property, adopted Marnie into her care.
- Sally Bates (Former Friend)
During a cover under the alias of Heather, Polly became close with a rich woman and spun a story in which she was the wife of Otto. When the facade crumbled, Sally distanced herself from Polly and, ultimately, became her blackmail victim in an effort to collect money.
