JJ is Wanda's brother, and Nicki's darkest secret...


JJ was Wanda’s brother, and Nicki’s darkest secret. JJ was sealed to Nicki when she was just 15 and they had a daughter together, Cara Lynn. When Nicki finally convinced Roman to unseal them, she left Juniper Creek and her daughter behind. JJ raised Cara Lynn in Kansas and only recently returned to Juniper Creek to put his monstrous family planning philosophy into practice there. When Nicki and Adaleen discovered JJ's plans, Adaleen killed him, but not before being impregnated.
