Jessica Blaine is a con and attempted murder victim of Edward Crandall and Denise Cormier. Crandall seduced her while Cormier seduced Curtis Johansen in illegitimate marriages. Since Blaine was a fortune heir and Johansen was a businessman, the con couple secretly bilked them of their wealth while occasional convening at their own apartment, eventually setting up Cormier's "rape" and Johansen's "rape"/attempted murder to further deceive and strength the manipulation over their "spouses".

Blaine was in disbelief, especially since Crandall assisted in her physical therapy, and then was told the truth by Crandall while Cormier told Johansen, so spousal privilege prevent the court admission of the two socialites' testimonies. When Crandall and Cormier were revealed to have married in Mexico, the privilege is void, and Blaine has one last confrontation with Crandall, rejecting him with "the only place you're going is to hell" to say she's ready to testify.
