Yeah, I think she's primarily jealous of Richard's close relation to Tommy and possibly sees him taking over the role that would be Jimmy's if he was still alive. At the same time, Richard's falling in love is seen as a distraction by her from the job he's doing for her.
Not only that, but she fears Richard, Julia, and Tommy becoming their own little family. Gillian sees Julia as a threat for the position of Tommy's "mommy", a threat that was greatly reinforced upon seeing the picture of the three of them together. She did what she could to sour Richard and Julia's relationship, and when that didn't work she chose to remove Richard (and therefore Julia) from the equation.

Great episode this week. The first fifteen minutes were particularly exciting. There's an awful lot that needs to be wrapped up next week though and I'm worried that it might be rushed, particularly considering this episode was 5-10 minutes shorter than usual.
