When J.J. returned to Salem in the spring of 2013, he began hanging around with some of the drug users and dealiers in Salem. Bev was in this group. She developed a crush on J.J. and they went on a few "dates." But their dates were really just covers for J.J. to get out of the Horton house and smoke marijuana with his friends. Bev would often participate in these schemes and lies in order to spend time with J.J.
