- "Jason is Mine!"
- ―Jessica to Steve Newlin[src]
Jessica arrives at Jason's house and saves him from Steve Newlin's attack. She claims that she is the progeny of Bill Compton, the "King of Louisiana", and that he is out of town- which pretty much leaves her the "Queen". She also claims to Steve, "Jason is Mine!".
Later Jessica is having a party at Bill's house. Jason shows up and stays to party with the frat boys and the sorority girls. Jessica sings karaoke while Jason plays the guitar from Rockstar Hero. Zander interrupts them, and Jessica begins to make out with him. While Jason leaves with Cammy, Jessica watches - showing a tinge of jealousy. ("Turn! Turn! Turn!")
While Jessica is having another party, Steve Newlin appears at the doorstep of Bill's house and wants to "purchase" Jason Stackhouse for $10,000. Jessica amuses the idea that Steve is willing to pay that much money for Jason, and asks for $20,000 instead. When Steve eventually agrees to it, Jessica tells him that she does not sell her friends.

While trying on dresses at a boutique, Tracy tells Jessica she doesn't have to try so hard to get Jason's attention. Jessica tells her that there is a lot more to Jason than what meets the eye and guesses that Jason broke up with Tracy a while back and that she should keep quiet if she wants her to keep spending "daddy's money." A mysterious guy walks in, and tells Tracy he is there to pick up a number of dresses for his sixteen sisters. Jessica proclaims that he smells wonderful, he quickly leaves, and she follows him to a field where he is nowhere to be found.
Later, she goes to Jason's house and tells him about this mysterious guy and how he smelt like "cotton candy, fresh bread and sex," and makes advances onto Jason. He tells her that he doesn't want to have sex and that she should leave because he doesn't know how to befriend girls; he only knows how to have sex with them. She tells him how she is his friend, and tells him she's going to sit down and listen to his problems. They both smile warmly. ("Whatever I Am, You Made Me")
Jessica overhears the conversation Jason and Sookie are having about Debbie and Tara, and interrupts them surprised that Tara is a vampire. Later while Jason and Andy are talking about the Debbie Pelt case, Jessica uses vampire speed to enter the room and shortly after glamours Andy into forgetting about the case.
Jessica is helping Bill search the mansion for bugs that could have been used to hear his conversations. Bill finds a joint and asks Jessica about it, and she explains that she had some friends over, but nobody was killed or drained. Bills tells her that its fine and that this is her house too. Jessica asks him if he is going to visit Sookie, because she has been having a hard time. He says that she took care of it with the sheriff, but to not make a habit out of it because Sookie tends to bring it out in people. He hugs her before he leaves, saying that he did a good job. ("We’ll Meet Again")

Jessica tells Hoyt that this is pathetic but Hoyt goes on, insisting that Jessica still cares for him. He inflames Jessica's anger and she jumps on him.

A man seduces Jessica at the bar and the two leave together.
Hoyt is brought to a remote compound by his new redneck buddies. They show him that they've captured Jessica. They want him to kill her with some silver and wooden bullets. They lock him in a room with her and refuse to open the door until he kills her.
Hoyt asks Jessica why she stopped loving him. She says she wanted to love him, even going so far as to pray that the feelings would return, but it just never happened. The lone member of the group still watching them hears a shot from the room. He unlocks the door and Jessica breaks his neck. Since it's daylight Jessica can't leave, so Hoyt goes for help.
Sam, Andy and Luna arrive at the compound and find Jessica. Sam and Luna smell a human woman. Jessica is surprised Hoyt's not the reason they are there. ("Somebody That I Used to Know")

Jessica arrives at Merlotte's and the bar quickly empties. The only two remaining customers, Cole and Bobbie, reach for concealed weapons. Sam and Lafayette get the drop on them and disarm them. They find that their weapons are loaded with wooden bullets, confirming their intention to kill a vampire, but let them go. Sam invites Jessica to sit wherever she likes. The gunmen barge into Jason as they flee the bar. He asks Sam what is going on before seeing that Jessica is there. He is concerned that she is there without her guards. She tells him that Bill stopped paying them so they left the mansion, adding that it is a good thing because they were starting to look tasty to her. They realize that they are both there at Hoyt's invitation just before he walks in.
Hoyt explains his plan to move to Alaska. Jessica and Jason try to convince him to stay, to no avail. He asks Jessica to glamour away all memory of both her and Jason before he leaves, so he can make a fresh start. Jessica is devastated by the finality of his request but obliges him. She tenderly imbues him with hope for a carefree life and a new, better first love. Jason and Jessica tearfully leave Hoyt alone in the booth.
Jessica returns to her empty mansion, reminiscing about her time with Hoyt. She is startled by the sound of splintering wood. The Authority Guard Captain has brought a team to take her to the authority headquarters. Jessica objects but the Captain shows her a video uplink with Bill and he commands her to obey. Annoyed, she puts on her shoes.
Jessica angrily demands an explanation on arriving at the Authority Headquarters. Bill says that he is trying to protect her. She asks if his concern is related to the Tru Blood bombings and if he is with the American Vampire League. He smiles enigmatically.
He gives her a tour of the facility, including the inner sanctum. Jessica is perturbed by his religious fervor, comparing him to her fundamentalist Christian parents. He asks her to read the vampire bible with an open mind and tells her that he believes that he is fated to lead their kind into the coming age.
The authority meet to discuss spreading their anti-human message. Russell brings up the possibility of day walking using the blood of faeries. He believes they should attempt to synthesize faerie blood just as they have done with human blood. Salome calls the suggestion blasphemy. Russell attacks her and announces his superiority over all of them, his native accent returning as he loses control of his emotions. He declares that they will not constrain him and speeds out of the room. ("Gone, Gone, Gone")
Jessica finds Bill and tells him that she needs to warn Jason that Russell and Steve are after him. Bill rejects her request and explains that he has found Lilith, and that is against Lilith's word for a vampire and a human to be together. Quickly thinking, Jessica tells Bill that she will turn Jason into a vampire so that they can be together, as Lilith would approve. Bill warns her that he is not as naive as she thinks. He sends two of his guards with her to find Jason and ensure that she turns him. Jessica tries unsuccessfully to change his mind.
Jessica finds Jason and asks him if he trusts her. The guards tell Jessica that if she doesn't put him in the ground, they will. Jessica bites Jason and violently sucks his blood.
Jessica lies next to a still Jason in a grave as her guards begin to bury them. Jessica signals Jason and he suddenly shoots both guards dead with wooden bullets. Jason exclaims he has to warn Sookie about Russell, and Jessica tells him that if she was to spend eternity with anyone, she'd rather it be him.
Pam runs into Jessica in the bar and Jessica pleads for Pam to hide her. Pam refuses initially, but eventually relents after Jessica tells her where Eric is.
In the basement of Fangtasia, Tara, Jessica and Pam discuss Bill and Eric's behavior. Pam believes they have been affected by living in the Authority nest and drinking tainted blood. Jessica and Tara chat, as Jessica asks Tara if she "like" likes Pam because of the way she looks at her. Tara gets defensive and upset that Jessica is getting in her business. Jessica explains that she has no friends, and they make amends, solidifying their bond.
