In only the fourth episode, Janis went on a romantic date with chef Maya (played by Numb3rs star Navi Rawat). While the romance showed promise (as well as a fair amount of physical intimacy), Janis was upset when she learned that Maya had been snooping around in the Mosaic database for information on her flashforward. Janis subsequently bailed on their date and, ostensibly, their budding relationship.
Since then, Janis Hawk has weathered her share of trials, including being attacked, getting shot, resigning from the FBI and having that resignation rejected by her boss. But there’s still a lot we don’t know about Janis, including the details surrounding her mysterious pregnancy, which was revealed in her flashforward experience.
Because the show is on hold for now (it will resume March 18), we’ll have to wait a bit longer to learn more about her. In the meantime, AfterElton.com editor Michael Jensen spoke to Christine Woods on our behalf at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Tour in Los Angeles this week, and asked her to give us some hints as to what might be coming up on the show and how Janis’s love life might be shaping up.
