The two of them later had an argument in which Jennifer blamed Dennis for their son's death, claiming he didn't pay enough attention to Jacob. When Dennis fell into depression afterwards and nearly contemplated suicide though, Jennifer was left deeply worried.
After Dennis returned to the Coterie from a psychiatric hospital, he and Jennifer finally made amends over their past, apologizing for hurting one another.
