This scene takes place immediately after Jesse is offered an opportunity of a lifetime—and opening slot on an arena tour—and right after Blair puts down the initial payment on her classes.
Jesse: Female (any ethnicity)26, a musician on the verge of quitting. She’s disappointed and disheartened by the industry, and is recovering from substance abuse problems she got from coping with the stress. While self-assured, she’s incapable of taking care of herself. Blair’s younger sister.
Blair: Female (any ethnicity)31, business school dropout. Left college to take over the family restaurant when her parent’s died. Took Jesse in when she decided to quit music. Blair wishes to go back to school to finish her degree, but needs Jesse’s help at the restaurant in order to do so.
