She is seen talking with Todd about having a party to introduce people to Todd, Phillip James and Dimitri Vanderbilt.  She is approached by Eric Dugan who asked to switch houses so he doesn't have to live with Luka anymore.  She opens the door for Todd and Phillip and tries to introduce them to several others.  She tries to get Dimitri to stay and enjoy the party


Jenny appears with Todd and Phillip asking them to choose jobs.  She later appears as Leo knocks on her door and asks to speak with her. 


Jenny appears with Leo on Rick Conrad's front doorstep to tell him about his ex-wife, Judy's, passing.  After leaving, she tells Leo to take a large group, retaliate, and rescue Niklas. She tells him, if need be, kill Niklas so he doesn't talk.  She later appears with Leo's rescue crew before they leave.  It is revealed she sent Scott Cleary to see if the Target could be a stronghold.


Jenny holds a service for Judy in the church and tells the town about the capture of Niklas, the possibility of making the Target a stronghold and the run to the mall to scavenge supplies.  As she leaves, she is approached by Ray, who is upset that she sent Warren Smith, Paul and Tim against his will, but she reminds him that she runs the town, and it's her call.  She is then approached by Garrett Smith asking to be taken off construction and placed in the mall scavengers.  She runs into the West brothers who ask if she will be joining for movie night before finally running into Bentley and Kendall Standish, who ask for morning after pills.  She exits the church and comes across Todd, who tosses her a bagel.  She talks with him and Annie McGovern for a bit before leaving.  It is revealed that she sent more construction workers to help at the Target


Jenny appears with Elizabeth, Garrett, Matt and Tracy talking about who is set to go on the run to the mall. She later appears talking to Bentley and Kendall about Bentley leaving as well when Oliver knocks on her door and tells her Leo returned.
