Jess is smart and articulate. She says the unsayable and questions social norms and etiquette. NICE.

When she was struck in the storm, Jess – who hates people who bullshit and lie to her – developed X-ray vision, and she now sees straight to the heart of things. Jess might be tough and straight talking, but she has a vulnerable side hidden beneath her cool exterior. Having had her heart broken by Alex 'the handsome barman' in Series 4, Jess is now more determined than ever that she won't let her vulnerability show. But despite her cool exterior, an unlikely liaison is on the horizon that takes her completely by surprise.
