She waited for him at a designated area where they were supposed to meet after he robbed the shipment but she left after he never showed. Ramon had been captured and killed by Tommy. Pink Sneakers later assassinates one of Ghost and Tommy's associates named Anibal Santalises. Later, while the Soldado Nation leader Carlos Ruiz is at a party, she infiltrates the party and gives him a lap dance. While doing so, she stabs and tries to kill Ruiz and escapes. The hit failed and Ruiz lived. Pink Sneakers then visits Kanan and he tells her that he wants Ghost dead before he gets out of prison. While Tommy is going to assassinate one of Ruiz's men Nomar, she goes to Ghost's nightclub, Truth, to kill Ghost, but ends up shooting Holly (Tommy's girlfriend and a waitress) instead.
Season 2 Edit
After failing to kill Ghost, Pink Sneakers goes into hiding and both Kanan and Ghost are trying to find her. Kanan kills one of her contacts after he failed to find her. Julio, Tommy and Ghost's associate, tracks her down to Miami using his contacts there and notifies Ghost. Ghost goes to Miami with his girlfriend Angela. After hearing this and to prevent Ghost and Tommy from learning the truth behind the hits on their crew, Kanan calls his right hand man Dre and tells him to follow Ghost and kill Pink Sneakers before he does. While in Miami, Pink Sneakers catches up with her grandfather who runs a store in the area. While Ghost and Angela are at a restaurant, he spots her and goes after her. As she tries to escape she is caught by Dre who stabs her and disappears while Ghost only sees his figure running in the shadows.
While slowly dying, Ghost catches up her and asks who hired her, thinking it was Rolla who Ghost killed after believing Rolla was the one who been attacking his drug organization. She insults him for thinking Rolla who was behind it. She tells him that it wasn't him, and dies.
In Ghost Is Dead, Dre admits to Ghost that he was the one who kill Pink Sneakers on Kanan's orders before siding with Ghost to take him down.
