When asked about her character in the next season, Jenna shared, "I kind of want her to be darker," she added. "I want her to get more in the nitty-gritty of things and not play things so safe, because there are a lot of lines about her saving the school and doing whatever, but for me, her main drive with the monster is of competitiveness. Kind of, 'Man, how's this guy doing this?'"

Ortega also shared that she wants her character to go down the anti-hero path, "I think I want it to continue down an antihero stream rather than a typical hero."
