Derek with a beer and others drink before the office Christmas party, with Lisa joining him and she orders a Dirty Martini. When the bartender asks how dirty, she playfully replies, "Make it filthy.
Later, Lisa comes on to him in the restroom, and after rebuking her, he drives home somewhat intoxicated. Derek talks about Joe talking about drinking, with Sharon saying the latter must have been drunk at the time. Derek, Ben, Joe and another man have drinks at a company retreat where a Dirty Martini is delivered to Derek, ordered by someone else Lisa.
Derek then goes off and discovers Lisa there, and while he's distracted, she dumps some "date rape" type powder into his drink. When he returns to his room after Ben says they should plunder the mini-bar , he stumbles about the view of him is slightly distorted to represent that and he collapses on his bed, only to find Lisa there who then climbs on top of him we don't know if sex occurs.
Ben and Joe have wine, but Derek says he isn't having any, which Ben says is a first. Sharon and Derek have wine in a restaurant. Lisa opens and pours champagne into two glasses while she's by herself in Sharon and Derek's bedroom. At the office Christmas party, Derek states he has to "take a leak. He wants nothing to do with this and tries to keep her quiet when someone else enters the bathroom and apparently uses the urinal, but we don't hear or really see much related to that last part.
Ben tells Derek he missed another coworker at the office party who "tossed his cookies" on the Christmas tree. Lisa has a little bit of a bloody nose and Sharon a bit of a bloody lip as the two fight.
When that's done, both have a little bit of blood on their shirts as well. She then essentially becomes his stalker, trying to get into his life however possible including drugging him to possibly have sex , with the increasingly delusional obsession that they're lovers. Lisa listens in on a call between Derek and Sharon, and we later hear she wrote down Sharon's name wrong on a phone call message note. About Lisa, Ben states, "That is one smoking hot piece of ass.
Derek reminds Ben that the latter is married, with Ben stating he's just on the sidelines, waiting to get back into the game. After a party, Derek drives home somewhat intoxicated. Derek doesn't inform Sharon about Lisa coming on to him at work that is, until the situation has gotten out of control.
Lisa jokingly refers to Patrick, who's apparently gay, as, "You silly old queen. About the trouble that's since arisen with Lisa, Joe half-jokes to Derek that the latter probably wishes he had "banged" her now. Lisa briefly kidnaps Kyle from his parents' home. Derek returns to his hotel room to find Lisa in his bed, apparently nude under the covers we don't see anything explicit.
He then realizes she's overdosed on some sort of prescription pills and calls for help. Lisa convinces a babysitter that she knows Sharon and Derek who are away , and then goes up to Kyle's room where she holds the toddler. She then leaves, and when Derek and Sharon return, they're horrified to learn that Lisa was there and then panic as they look for their boy who's now missing Derek finds the boy in the backseat of the car they arrived in, with a lipstick kiss mark on his forehead, but otherwise unharmed.
When the couple returns home from the hospital, they find their bedroom trashed. Patrick unknowingly gives Lisa info about Derek and Sharon's plans when we know she's now really unhinged and potentially dangerous. Sharon returns home only to hear noises upstairs, so she slowly goes up there to investigate.
She then finds Lisa, and the two get into a multi-minute fight. Sharon shoves Lisa to the floor, but she then kicks Sharon who then drives Lisa back to a wall. Lisa then repeatedly tries to hit Sharon with a floor lamp. Sharon then head-butts Lisa and pushes her back to a wall and throws her to the floor.
She then punches Lisa twice and drags her along a railing, but Lisa then hits her and starts to choke Sharon while leaning her back over a railing.
The two then end up tumbling down some steps where Lisa kicks Sharon in the face before going back up the stairs. Sharon then slowly goes into the attic looking for her, and Lisa hits her with a board, while Sharon elbows Lisa. During a fight in the attic, Sharon causes Lisa to step through the floor, resulting in Sharon dangling far above the floor in the multi-story atrium.
Sharon then offers to help Lisa, but that results in Sharon being pulled toward the hole, and so she pries Lisa's fingers off her arm. Lisa then falls, but grabs hold of the chandelier. Her weight, however, causes that to partially break from the ceiling, sending Lisa falling many feet to the floor where she crashes through a glass coffee table. She's still alive, but the chandelier then falls and smashes into Lisa, presumably killing her.
