Throughout the Series[edit | edit source]

Season 1[edit | edit source]

Jean is Otis' mother and a sex therapist. She tries to give Otis advice as he starts to get older and get hormones. She has frequent casual sex throughout the season. She regularly searches through Otis' room when he isn't at home, even going as far as to write a book about Otis' sexual life.

Season 2[edit | edit source]

In the second season, Jean gets feelings for Jakob and they start a real relationship. She also gets hired by Moordale Secondary School to help with the sex education program, much to Otis' dismay.

At the end of the season, she finds out she is pregnant and perimenopausal.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Jean is caring and loving. Because Otis doesn't talk to her as much, she tends to pry into his personal and sexual life.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Season 1[edit | edit source]

Of course you're normal. You're sixteen. You're not supposed to know the answers to anything.
— Jean to Otis[src]

Season 2[edit | edit source]

Sex doesn't make us whole. And so, how could you ever be broken?
— Jean to Florence[src]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She may have kept Remi's last name so that she could always be related to Otis as there is no law in the UK that requires a woman to change back to her maiden name once divorced.
