Jane Hollis was a recurring character on Season Two of Scream Queens. Her husband, Bill, was a patient at Our Lady of Perpetual Suffering before being tragically murdered by Dr. Mike and Nurse Thomas. She had a son with Bill, who was revealed in Chanel Pour Homme-Icide to be Cassidy Cascade. In Rapunzel, Rapunzel, it was revealed that Jane orchestrated the original Green Meanie murders, recruiting her brother to kill the Our Lady of Perpetual Suffering staff in 1986, and even having the costume made for him.
She is portrayed by Trilby Glover.
Jane is first seen running up to Nurse Thomas during a Halloween party at Our Lady of Perpetual Suffering in 1985. She is noticeably pregnant, and begins complaining that she had been buzzing the nurse on her pager for half an hour because something is wrong with her husband, Bill, and she thinks that he could be dying. Nurse Thomas, reluctant to leave the party, has no choice but to go check on Bill. She asks her colleagues if they have seen Dr. Mike, and Jane explains to them that her husband has COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and is having trouble breathing. The colleagues tell them that Dr. Mike is in the back room, so Jane and Nurse Thomas go to find him.
Jane says that her husband needs a doctor, and demands that Dr. Mike help him. Dr. Mike, though disinclined, then goes to perform tests on Bill, while Jane stands by his bed side looking worried. Dr. Mike explains to Jane that Bill's lungs need to be drained and suggests that he wait until morning to do it. Jane becomes angry and screams at him to give Bill the procedure now, or else she will make sure that their medical licenses are revoked and the hospital gets shut down. Dr. Mike then agrees to do the procedure and reassures Jane that everything will be fine. Jane then turns to Bill and tells him that she loves him. Bill asks how their son is doing, and Jane says that he's excited for Bill to come home. The couple share a kiss before Dr. Mike asks her to go wait in the waiting room, and as she is leaving she thanks the doctor for his help.
As Dr. Mike goes to dump Bill's body in the swamp behind the hospital, instead of performing the procedure that he promised Jane, Nurse Thomas seems worried about what would happen if Jane were to find out, and Mike says that it's her word against theirs. Jane is then shown in the waiting room, rubbing her pregnant belly, completely unknowing of what just happened to her husband.
As Lynn Johnstone recounts his time at Our Lady of Perpetual Suffering to Cathy, Chanel, Denise, and #3, he reveals how he developed a close friendship with Nurse Thomas. He explains that she confessed to him all the details of Halloween 1985, and a flashback ensues, showing Jane at Bill's beside, before he is taken away by Dr. Mike and Nurse Thomas. Lynn also expresses his belief that Jane found out what happened to Bill, and that she could have been the Green Meanie who killed all of the staff and patients on October 31, 1986. He also believes that Jane called him saying she was going to kill again as the Green Meanie, and Zayday Williams says it also could have been her baby.
After looking through a file from the police department, Zayday discovers a missing persons report filed by Jane on November 2, 1985 for her husband Bill, exactly 48 hours after his body was dumped. Zayday suggests that Jane might know some crucial information, so she and Libby then decide to visit Jane at the address listed on the file to obtain information about who the killer could be. When they arrive and ask about her son, Jane tells them that she hasn't seen her son in years, as they have never had a close relationship. She admits that he is her only son, and that she never got remarried after Bill's death. Zayday then asks her what she thinks happened to her husband, and she reveals her belief that Bill indeed died that night, and that Dr. Mike and Nurse Thomas faked the paperwork releasing him from the hospital and tossed his body in the swamp to cover their tracks. Libby then insensitively accuses Jane of murdering Bill and setting up the hospital death to shift the blame away from her. However, Jane insists she didn't kill her husband and yells at Libby for being accusatory.
Zayday and Libby then briefly excuse themselves to Jane's kitchen, where Zayday explains that Chamberlain cannot be Jane's baby as she suspected, because Jane is white. They return to the living room to announce their departure and thank Jane for her time. As the girls are walking to the door, Libby notices a photo of Jane and Bill on an end table, and she mistakes Bill for an NBA player. Jane, noticeably annoyed, clarifies that the photo is of her husband, and as she rolls her eyes and walks away, Zayday realizes that Bill is black, and therefore Jane's baby could be as well.
Later that night, Jane is cooking breakfast for dinner when she hears someone come through the door. It is revealed to be her son, Dr. Cassidy Cascade, who hangs up his coat and gives Jane a kiss upon entering. As Cassidy is washing his hands, Jane makes her way over to the kitchen table and explains to Cassidy that a few people from the hospital came over to ask about Bill and to try to find out Cassidy's identity. She asks him if they should do anything about it, and he walks over to her, assuring her not to worry and that he will take care of everything. Jane rubs his arm and shows gratitude for how well he treats her, and Cassidy explains that she deserves it after all she's been through.
As Zayday is collecting blood from Chanel #5 for the blood drive, she begins explaining to #5 how everyone inherits their blood type from their parents. As she's saying this, she realizes that if they screen the entire hospital staff's blood and cross-reference that to the blood types of Bill and Jane Hollis, they'll be able to find the baby in the belly from 1985, or at least find out who it can't be.
The next day, Zayday approaches Jane while she is unpacking groceries from the trunk of her car. Zayday, having just discovered the key to identifying Jane's child, is bent on getting a blood sample from Jane to match the blood type to the child in the hospital staff. Zayday tells Jane that she's been going door to door trying to get donations for the hospital's blood drive, and asks Jane if she would be interested in donating. When Jane harshly declines, Zayday compares it to Dominoes, in the sense that Zayday could come to Jane to take a donation rather than her having to go to the hospital. Jane says its nothing like Dominoes and tells Zayday to leave her alone, before stating that the hospital is evil and that she wishes it would be burned to the ground.
Later on, Zayday runs into Chamberlain in the hallway, and after calling her out for being so distant, he tells her that he's aware of her quest to obtain the blood types of Bill and Jane to definitively prove that someone is the baby on staff. He admits that he wants to help, but Zayday is still suspicious of him, telling him that she cannot trust him until he can prove he isn't the killer, which is impossible without a blood sample from Jane.
The following day, as Jane is picking up her newspaper, Chamberlain tries to get a sample of her DNA to then transfer to blood type. He spots her through his binoculars and grabs his candy striper cart, strolling down the street yelling "hot pies." Jane accepts a slice of pie when offered one, but she is unaware that the pie is actually made up of enzymes that absorb saliva. After taking several bites, she asks what kind of pie it is, and Chamberlain jokingly responds that it is a "worm pie." She immediately spits out the pie in disgust, giving Chamberlain a saliva sample to study for a blood type.
With this information, Chamberlain then tells Zayday that both Jane and Bill Hollis had blood type O-positive. Therefore, their child would also have O-positive blood. However, after Cassidy tampers with the blood samples, Zayday, Chamberlain, and Cathy are convinced that Brock is actually Jane's child, despite him being 50 years old.
After Zayday manages to cut a shred of cloth from the Green Meanie costume, she brings the sample around to various fabric stores in an attempt to pinpoint the origins of the costume. She stumbles upon Clark's shop and asks if he's seen the fabric before, to which he reveals that he created three costumes using that fabric, each paired with a green mask with horns, but in three different sizes. The first was made in 1986, the same year the massacre occurred at Our Lady of Perpetual Suffering. The second was ordered a few months ago, while the third was made only a few weeks ago. Clark says he has no idea who ordered the second costume, as the order was done entirely by mail, but he does disclose that the first and third customer were the same person, a nice older woman with pretty hands. He is unable to remember her name, but Zayday immediately realizes he's referring to Jane.
Zayday then rushes over to Jane's house to question her about her recent discovery. Before approaching the house, she calls Chamberlain to come over, explaining that Jane is the mother of the killer, but Chamberlain doesn't answer, forcing Zayday to confront Jane alone. Jane is at first reluctant to open the door, but after Zayday threatens to contact the police, Jane ultimately lets her in. She puts on a kettle of tea as Zayday explains that she feels Jane's pain after the loss of her husband and understands why she would want the hospital to be shut down forever, but that murder isn't the right way to handle it. She requests that Jane disclose who her son is, so that she can help turn the duo in to the police. Jane then hands Zayday a cup of tea, and tells Zayday that she wishes she was working at the hospital the night her husband was murdered, as she has a kind heart unlike Dr. Mike and Nurse Thomas.
The two then migrate to the living room to converse, where Jane explains that the death of her husband was only just the beginning. Her heartbreak soon turned to anger as she realized that no one was going to pay for their crimes. Although she contacted the police and explained that her husband wouldn't have checked himself out of the hospital, they refused to believe her, since Dr. Mike had forged the release paperwork. Instead, they just assumed Bill ran away after getting cold feet about being a father. Since the police wouldn't help, and Jane couldn't just let Dr. Mike get away with it, she decided to take matters into her own hands. She had a costume custom-made in the likeness of the costume Dr. Mike was wearing the night he killed Bill, and then recruited her brother to kill the hospital staff on the one year anniversary of Bill's death, as her brother was much stronger than her, and a bit of a psychopath. Unfortunately, her brother died a year later in a fight with a roller derby team, and Jane admits that she misses him, even though he probably deserved to die. She confesses that from that moment forward, she vowed to never let the hospital open again, and raised her son on the same beliefs, training him to kill if the hospital was ever re-opened. Zayday then questions why her son would be killing innocent patients, as they had nothing to do with the death of Bill, to which Jane clarifies that you can't bring basic logic into the equation when dealing with insane people.
As time progresses, Zayday beings hallucinating and feeling dizzy, as if she's going to pass out, so she asks Jane what's going on. Jane then reveals that she slipped a Lorazepam into her tea and that she'll be unconscious very shortly. After Zayday collapses to the ground, Jane ties her to the bottom of a deep well in her house, with no means of escape, and Zayday later wakes up screaming.
In the final moments of the episode, after Wes murders Chamberlain for discovering his identity as one of the Green Meanies, Chamberlain's phone starts to flood with Zayday's messages about Jane. Wes picks up the phone and begins listening to one of Zayday's voicemails, in which she discloses that Jane Hollis is the mother of the other Green Meanie, much to Wes' satisfaction.
After Cassidy saves Chanel #3 from the other 2 Green Meanies, she goes to thank him for the gesture the following day. She also gives him an ultimatum, explaining that she can't be his girlfriend unless he stops killing people. However, Cassidy insists that his mom is really important to him, and that the murders are really important to her, so it's not something that he can just give up. #3 tells him that he needs to stop being so scared of Jane, and after a brief moment of denial, Cassidy confesses that he is genuinely scared of her. #3 then suggests that they go speak to Jane together, but Cassidy admits that it's a terrible idea, as Jane is extremely possessive of him.
Later, as Zayday is frantically screaming for help, Jane opens up the trap door of the well to explain to her that it's useless to continue screaming, as she will just tell anyone that visits that she is watching TV very loudly. Zayday insists that her friends will come looking for her, but Jane alerts her that from what her son has told her, no one has even realized that she's gone missing yet. Just then, Cassidy arrives and shouts for his mom, and after immediately recognizing his voice, Zayday realizes that Cassidy is Jane's son, and therefore one of the Green Meanies. Jane then sarcastically congratulates her, calling her Nancy Drew, before closing the trap door and sliding her bed back over the opening.
After leaving her bedroom, she goes to greet her son, who has brought Chanel #3 with him. Jane questions who the girl is, and #3 clarifies that she's Cassidy's girlfriend, and asks if he's ever mentioned her before. Jane jokingly says the name sounds familiar, and goes to kiss her son, as Cassidy whispers in her ear to knock off the hostility. However, knowing #3's plans to convince her to stop Cassidy from murdering the hospital staff, Jane quickly tells #3 that she's wasting her time, as her demands will fall on deaf ears. Cassidy seems alarmed by her sudden assumptions, and insists that she actually take the time to get to know #3, but Jane clarifies that she already knows enough about #3 from her social media footprint. She calls out #3 for being admitted to an insane asylum, and even though #3 insists it was for a crime she didn't commit, Jane still doesn't believe her. As Jane continues to ridicule #3, knocking her for being pansexual and wearing earmuffs, Cassidy encourages her to stop, but Jane is appalled that #3 has the audacity to come into her home and tell her how to raise her son, just because she's waxing his knob.
Having heard enough verbal abuse, Chanel #3 scolds Jane for not being able to see the logic in shutting down a hospital that's actually curing people, which is what she wanted for Bill all those years ago. She explains that Jane is only mad at architecture and geography, but Jane clarifies that she doesn't know what it's like to lose someone that you love. #3 questions what would happen if Cassidy were to get caught, as she would then be losing another loved one, but Jane tells her that she'd take the fall, as sweet old ladies can get away with anything. #3 then suggests that they have Cassidy choose between the two of them, and Jane agrees, emotionally manipulating Cassidy into thinking that he will be betraying the memory of his father and breaking his mother's heart if he were to side with #3. Ultimately, Cassidy decides to keep the best interest of Jane in mind, breaking ties with #3 and continuing his murder spree to shut the hospital down. He sincerely apologizes to Chanel #3 and she leaves, as Jane then gives Cassidy a big hug. She tells him that she's proud of everything he's done, before letting him know that Chanel #3 will have to die.
