Jerry is a hotshot insurance salesman boss in the episode "The Sacrifice".
One of his clients was the crude tycoon Sebastian Fleming. Jerry arranges that his employed James met him for a subscrition. In parralel, James and Gloria Fleming had a secret relation. James kill Sebastian by pushing him of the balcony. The police don't suspect the real murders because Sebastian pocketed the money of his insurance before signing it but things go awry when Jerry who is Gloria's obsessed first lover enters the picture claiming he had photographic evidence of the murder. His ultimatum is to share Gloria, apparently forcing her to perverse sexual games. Higly depressed by this situation, James commits suicide by ingesting sleeping drugs having written a letter where he admits that only he committed the murder, acquitting Gloria. Ironically, Gloria reveal her real face by burning the letter in front of him and rejoin her acolyte and real lover Jerry, revealing that they manipulated James since the beginning.
