Jessica is the daughter of Sam and Grace Bennett. She has always enjoyed a close relationship with her mother, but struggled to be amicable with her sister Kay. Jessica has always believed that blood is thicker than water and has supported her sister Kay�even when she was in the wrong. Jessica started to take matters into her own hands when she switched the voting tags at the prom (which Kay had rigged in an attempt to ensure that Kay and Miguel were crowned as King and Queen). Jessica has always been a fan of Miguel and Charity and knew that Kay would never stop on her own.
Her faith in her family was tested when David and John came into town. Jessica knew for certain that Kay had forced herself in between Charity and Miguel, but couldn't prove that either. Jessica knew that no one would believe her because she had been secretly seeing Kay�s boyfriend Reese. She was furious to realize that a curse put on some popcorn (by Kay), to make Charity and Miguel split, was actually what broke up her and Reese. Jessica had always been the good girl of Harmony, but things changed once she started college.
Jessica couldn't take the pressure of her family crumbling and started smoking, cutting herself and became a club girl. Eventually she was drugged and raped by an older man. Spike ended up taking further advantage of Jessica's situation and got her addicted to drugs and thrust her into a life of prostitution. Jessica was overwhelmed with guilt and Spike used that guilt to keep her doing exactly what he wanted. Jessica then started having black outs and waking up next to dead John's. Paloma and Simone helped her cover up the murders (uncertain that she had committed them), but she was still unable to get away from Spike. He tracked her to Rome where she held him at gunpoint. Spike again used guilt and made her believe that she would shame her family. When they caught up to them and told Spike that Jessica could put him away for a long time, she yelled out that she couldn't - because they are married and that he was the only one who truly cared for her!

At home, Tabitha reads the newspaper article about the storm when Kay comes down in her wedding dress. Tabs sighs and checks her out. They're giddy until Tabitha tries to back out of going to the wedding. Sam interrupts before she can do so. He takes his daughter's hand and tells her how beautiful she looks. He's sure that she and Miguel will be happy. She just wishes that Jess could have made it back to the wedding. On cue, Jessica runs in and hugs her sister.
Later, Tabitha and Sam talk about what happened at the church. He brings up Vincent's accusation that she is a witch. "I can honestly say that I am not a witch," she claims, somewhat sadly. Sam tells her that she has been a great neighbor and a good friend. Tabs smiles. Meanwhile, Kay wishes that her sister could be her maid of honor. Jessica can't; her sobriety still isn't set in stone and she'll have to get back to the program. She tells her sister that she is planning to go to college when she finishes and then maybe she will hook up with Reese. They've been talking again since she began reforming and he may be moving back. Jessica tells her sister that she deserves to be happy with Miguel after all she's done to get him. Sam and Tabitha walk over to them. Kay wishes her mother could be there to see them so happy. "She knows Kay. Grace knows," Sam smiles as he looks up to Heaven. Tabitha looks away, not having the heart to tell them this happiness won't last. Kay is ready to get to the church. Sam hands her a note from Simone. It tells of how busy she is raising the baby with Whitney and TC and wishes her all the best. Simone also sent along some earrings for Kay's outfit. Jessica remembers how much help Simone gave her and what a good friend she's been. The sisters hug and cry before Sam has to end their tender moment and bring Jessica back to rehab. As soon as they're gone, Tabs looks for a way out of going to the wedding. She hands Kay a gift first. It's what Cleopatra gave her on her wedding day. "Unfortunately I wound up helping her die," Tabitha says, recalling her dozens of marriages. "I've always cherished this bracelet as I cherish you," Tabs says, hugging her crying friend. Kay hurries off and Tabitha holds back her tears: "Unless some miracle happens, this is the last day of everyone's life in Harmony."
Sam walks in his living room and sees Jessica sitting on the couch with her baby. As he gushes over his grandson, Jessica admits she was worried that he wouldn't love the baby because he's part Spike. Sam says it's not the baby's fault and vows to never let Spike get near her again. Jessica tells Sam she named her son Samuel after him. Sam is touched and promises to be a good role model for him. He asks Jessica if Spike tried to get a hold of her while she was away and Jessica says he didn't. She explains she left Harmony to have the baby because she felt like people were judging her, but she feels safe at home now. Sam leaves the room to get Samuel his bottle.
After Sam leaves, Spike walks in and grabs Jessica. He tells her that he is going to take his son and warns her to keep quiet or else he will kill her. Jessica says Sam will arrest him once he gets back from the kitchen, but Spike says if that happens he will escape, track her down and sell his baby on the black market. Jessica tells Spike that she will send him photos of their son from time to time along with divorce papers, but Spike says he wants to be a part of his son's life. Jessica tells him, "No way!" Spike threatens to take Samuel from her if she doesn't let him see his son and instructs her to name the kid after him. Jessica says she already put Samuel on the birth certificate, so Spike tells her to use Herbert (Spike's real name) as the baby's middle name then.
Sam comes back to the living room and Jessica worries that he saw Spike. Spike hid in time though and Sam asks what the boy's middle name is. Jessica says it's Herbert and Sam thinks it's a great name. As Sam hugs Jessica, she sees Spike hold up a knife warning her to keep quiet.
