Getting more evil by the minute, aren’t we. If you’re still not ready to take the Good Karma way out (the failsafe terminal), it’s time to complete Betty’s next mission: kill Mabel Henderson.
Betty asks you to come up with a creative way for Mabel Henderson to die. Physical beating won’t do, even with a rolling pin. So head to her house and try and figure out all the creative ways you can booby trap it!
There are four ways that I’ve discovered, and here they are in a detailed walkthrough.

First things first, here’s an illustrated walkthrough, complete with screenshots, of all the wonderful methods of murder. Then, we’ll explain it in more detail.
How to Kill Mabel Henderson – Detailed Walkthrough
And now, the wordy version.
First, find the Henderson residence. Mabel Henderson lives in the house on the southeastern point of the circle.
Betty wanted you to be creative, and there are plenty of creative ways to kill Mabel Henderson. There are four different methods that I could figure out.
Interact with the chandelier and you’ll be given an option to rig it so that it falls on someone. Sit on the couch and wait for a bit. Eventually Mabel Henderson will walk by and you can watch as the chandelier falls on her head.
If you go up the stairs, you’ll be able to place a rollerskate at the edge of the landing. Interact with the roller-skate and you’ll push it right up to the edge.
If you wait for a little bit, you’ll be able to see Mabel Henderson walk across the landing and tumble down the stairs.
For something with a little more pizazz, tamper with Mrs. Henderson’s pilot light. Walk into her kitchen and interact with the oven. You’ll have an option to tamper with the pilot light, and you’ll smell gas gathering in the area.
Go find Mrs. Henderson and now you can ask her to make you a pie. Follow her as she heads into the kitchen. When she goes to light the oven, the gas will explode, setting her on fire. Don’t worry, the explosion won’t hurt you. I safely sat and watched from the kitchen table.
Finally, you can use the security system (Mr. Handy). In the kitchen, you’ll find a computer terminal. The second option allows you to initiate the security protocol. The third option allows you to disable security screening (remove targeting information). Select both options, and Mr. Handy should turn hostile.
Be careful that Mr. Handy doesn’t become hostile towards you. If he does, you can run back to the terminal and turn the program off. However, you’ll have to wait inside the house until Mr. Handy kills Mrs. Henderson. The security protocol locks the front door.
This one is enjoyable, but it can be a bit annoying. Mabel Henderson runs away a lot, and it can take a while for Mr. Handy to finally kill her with the flamethrower.
Once again, the choice is yours. No noticeable rewards for picking one method of murder over another.
