Before the Blackout
Janis worked for the FBI. She attended the FBI Academy with Demetri Noh. She worked alongside Mark Benford and Demetri Noh to apprehend a terrorist cell. On the day of the blackout, she was helping them as they chased suspected terrorists.
Janis was getting an obstetrical ultrasound. The embryo was seventeen weeks along, and was that of a girl. During the procedure, Janis was seen to be crying, though the nature of the emotions is unknown. The other parent of the baby is currently unknown, and Janis will not become pregnant until about December 2009. ("No More Good Days")("Gimme Some Truth")
After having been shot, Olivia performed a B-Lynch procedure, in attempt to save Janis' uterus. Janis will now have only a slim chance of becoming pregnant in the future. ("Scary Monsters and Super Creeps")
After the Blackout
After waking up, Janis remained at FBI headquarters, and helped with the investigation. She shared her vision with her co-workers, expressing her confusion over its contents. Alongside Mark and Demetri, she was assigned to represent the FBI in the Mosaic Investigation. Later that night, she began looking through security footage of the blackout, and stumbled upon a recording of someone in Detroit who did not fall unconscious when the rest of the people did. She shared her discovery with Demetri, wondering aloud who the person could be. ("No More Good Days")
While in Munich, Germany she investigates Rudolf Geyer along side Mark. During the investigation, Geyer asks Janis about a ring she wears on her left thumb. He explains that in many eastern European countries, that is a sign of homosexuality. When confronted, she ignores the question and Mark interjects.
Janis initially seems confused and shocked about her flashfoward, but as time passes, she becomes more uncertain of her future, saying, "all I saw was a baby I don't even know that I want." ("137 Sekunden")
She entered a brief intimate relationship with Maya, and broke it off after Maya made references to Janis' pregnancy, which she discovered by searching for Janis on the Mosaic website. That night, after she brought a few groceries, Janis was attacked by two unidentified hostiles. The first she killed by hand, before she shot the second. However, she was shot in the abdomen in the process. ("Gimme Some Truth")
She narrowly survives the incident; she is saved when Olivia and a team of surgeons remove the bullet. This surgery, however, leaves heavy scar tissue, and she is told she has very little chance of ever being able to become pregnant. ("Scary Monsters and Super Creeps") While recuperating in the hospital, Janis receives flowers from Maya.
Janis returned to work in the "Playing Cards with Coyote" and was welcomed back by the team. She attempted to leave the FBI, citing her confusion about her future, but Stan Wedeck refused to accept her resignation, telling her that should should not let a bullet make her decisions for her. Later she was seen researching sperm donation on her computer. The page she was viewing contained nearly identical content to that on WikipediaWikipedia, but was attributed to "Referendum.com," a site whose home page is a stub.
In "A561984", Janis was tasked by Stanford Wedeck to find Lloyd Simcoe after his group held the news conference announcing their experiment. While she was waiting for Simcoe at Angeles Hospital, Bryce Varley became nervous, thinking that she was surveilling him. When Lloyd came into the hospital, he refused to talk with her, explaining that he had to find a safe place for his son, Dylan. He did not accept her offer of protection for both him and Dylan. When she returned later, Bryce thought she was back for the same purpose. She explained her quest for a sprem donation and he provided her with the name of the Cubit Fertility Clinic and that of a doctor on the staff, Jane Parker.
