Videos with Jennie
Jennie is a young woman Sarah befriends at the Lullaby Project encampment. She previously attended UC Berkeley as an anthropology major. She later finished her field study in Oaxaca, Mexico. Not ready to go back to school, she volunteered with the Lullaby Project.
Leaving the Lullaby Project
She and Sarah helped the Lullaby Project by helping set up a portable medical facility and handing out Lullaby care packages to the local women. Jennie began questioning the Lullaby Project when she made a trip to a local village to do prep work with some of the women, when a woman she was trying to help told her the Lullaby Project was a "curse" and that it had caused many miscarriages in her family.
Afterward, Jennie decided to look into what the project was up to and found many discrepancies in the files. When she talked to a very unconcerned Carl about it, he told her to just forget what she had seen. Jennie decided to flee the Lullaby Project when Carl found she had posted the video showing his indifference toward the undocumented miscarriages. Desperate for help, she reached out to Daniel and Jonas's online cybercrackers for advice. Once she felt that she could trust Daniel and Jonas, Jennie led them all to Mexico where they rescued a very resistant Sarah.
After the rescue, the group split up: Daniel and Sarah returned to California while Jonas, Emma, and Jennie remained in Mexico to try and stop the Lullaby Project. It was here when they received a message that Dr. Hart wanted to meet them. Unfortunately, this was simply another trap by the Order to kidnap Emma.
Jennie had decided to travel back to California with Jonas to meet Daniel and Sarah. She initially expressed that she may not be the type to fight the Order, but after some encouraging words by Daniel, she figured she was somehow "Attracted to Danger" (or Jonas), and stayed with the TAAG. Ultimately, she did come along to recent attempts to save Emma, but did not seem used to the danger and adrenaline of such situations.
Life with TAAG
Since rescuing Emma, the gang took Gina with them to hide. While tensions began to run high as a result of uneven distribution of the sexes, Jennie and Jonas began to fight about Emma being able to make her own choices. Jennie posted a video in which she did admit to having a crush on Jonas, but that it has nothing to do with why she was arguing with him. She stated that she simply wanted Emma to make her own decisions and contact her parents if she wanted to. When Emma did make the choice to leave, Jonas immediately blamed Jennie, yelling at her and demanding answers, but this was cleared up when Gina admitted that she was the one who gave Emma the money to leave. When Jennie volunteered to go to the store with Daniel, Sarah became angry and they got into a fight about it in the store. Although the fight was over within moments, Jennie was able to reassert that she was not interested in Daniel. The next evening, while Daniel stayed sober and Sarah and Gina played beer pong, Jennie and Jonas were able to talk and apologize for their role in the tense atmosphere. After talking for a short while, Jennie and Jonas kissed and turned off the camera. The next day, however they both insisted that they had only made out. Shortly thereafter, they all had to relocate after noticing William Porter's Shadow following them in one of their videos.
Helping to search for Bree's mom
After the chat, the team decided to split up; Sarah and Daniel planned to stay at the rented house, while Gina, Jennie, and Jonas would find Bree's mom. While Jonas is tried to wake Jennie up for their trip, a Shadow lurked in the closet. After Jonas left the room for a moment, the Shadow emerged and chased Jennie outside. Jennie screamed for Jonas, who ran after them, only to find that the Shadow had been hit by a car and was dead.
After being shaken up by the Shadow, the whole gang decide to spend a day At the Beach, where they could spend time together and have fun.
Sarah explained that while Jennie volunteered with several known members of the Order, she beleives that the "Hymn of One crap is ridiculous." Despite this, she told Sarah that "We eat their food and sleep in their tents. So when in Rome, be a gladiator!" We also learn that she is a fan of making obscure references. As Jennie began to get the hang of blogging, she made a new video in which she appears alone and unaided by Sarah, where she talked casually to the audience about random facts and also expressed her concern for Sarah and her new found faith.
