1. She owes Jetstone nothing, and Slately less than nothing.
2. Attacking Wanda's airforce was what Charlie wanted, but not necessarily Don's preference. Don wants Wanda croaked, but he'd probably rather see Jetstone take casualties than the Faq strike force he effectively paid for. And Jillian should be more concerned about Faq than about Don, and more concerned about Don than about Charlie.
Ya i think its easier for people to not begrudge Jillian for trying to sell out Jetstone when you really look at her situation...
She effectively had loyalties to both sides. On GK she had Ansom, Wanda and Jack people whome she cared about, who cared about her, and has a very strong personal history with. though ofcourse they are working for Stanley whome she hates and despises. On the RCC side she had her financial backers Don and charlie; and also Vinnie who has been a source of genuine personal support. When she went into the battle she had no idea what she was gonna do; she even thought she might fight wanda... it ain't easy fighting a lover... When it comes down to it, no matter what side she took, she was gonna look like a traitor to someone and end up croaking a lot of people
Jetstone... Jillian owes them nothing, Slately and his royals have done nothing but insult and talk down to her. the ONLY jetstone that ever really cared for her was Ansom. Charlie and Don don't really care for her, just what she could do for them if given the proper resources. When it comes down to it, she tried to side with the people that actually seemed to care about HER personally. and ya, Don and Charlie might see it as treason for her to sell out jetstone and turn wanda to her side, but when it comes down to it she isn't dealing them any real physical damage as she is Jetstone, just reputation (less so for charlie due since no one knows of his involvement with her)... there would not really be anything stopping her from working with them in the future if they are willing to let jetstone slide; not to mention that be turning wanda she ended the threat of GK's world domination and she still plans to wipe out GK...
So the treason to Don and Charlie is pretty minimal... the only serious treason is to Slately whom she owes NOTHING too
And again, the opposite of selling out Jetstone would have been to pretty much croak Wanda and the rest; or atleast force them into a position where they were very likely to get croaked by someone else. Could you do that to people you have long personal history with? when Wanda rejected Jillian's offer, she was out of her favorite option and thus ended up needing to betray wanda (leaving her to a high chance of croaking) and instead try her best to atleast save Jack and Ansom... either way she was gonna betray someone, she just tried to side with those who she thought actually cared about HER; it's like choosing between old friends and her Employers, and she tried to go with the friends
