Please help me determine whether or not to include a comma at the end of the third sentence:

"I won't be talking to my ex at the party tonight."

-"But what if she talks to you?"

"I won't be listening to her either."

-or-

"I won't be talking to my ex at the party tonight."

-"But what if she talks to you?"

"I won't be listening to her, either."

Thanks!

    It depends. If it makes it clearer, add a comma. If not, leave it out. – Maverick Jun 22 '16 at 20:33

Without the comma it means that he won’t listen to her - the same way as he won’t listen to anyone else. With the comma it means that he won’t talk and won’t listen to her. So yes, here the comma makes sense.
