Season 4Edit

Previously it is shown that Rita became acquaintances with Gemma Morrow when Gemma enters her shop, she asks about a certain flower that Gemma owns, asking some facts about the plant. While talking, Gemma asks Rita if she knows who she is, Rita says yes, and Rita answers with, "I guess that means you know who I am". While they talk, Lincoln Potter is looking at some flowers, as he listens to Rita and Gemma's conversation.

Season 5Edit

In Season 5, she is seen pregnant and kissing her husband, also with her husband kissing her stomach, before going home while at Eli's office in the police station.

A few episodes later, Rita is at home, reading a book. Rita hears a noise, grabs a gun from the drawer and threatens the intruders, yelling she has a gun, and has just called 911. As Rita approaches the door, three intruders burst through the door, Rita fires a shot of her gun, missing but hitting the wall. In the struggle, Rita scratches one of the intruders, then accidentally shoots herself in the stomach. The intruders rush out of the home in a hurry, to risk being caught.

Rita is seen in the hospital for a few episodes, she dies due to her injuries. And, with her death, her unborn baby dies, infuriating Eli and causing him to work with SAMCRO to find Rita's killers.
