Crystal was seen briefly in last Sunday's episode living on the compound that doubles as the meth lab where Lafayette last tried to unload his supply of V. Her other appearances this season have been equally fleeting. It's only when she meets Jason that things change. "She's immediately intrigued," Pulsipher says. "She and Jason have this amazing connection and I think, even for Jason, it is something special because he is a ladies' man."

She's not Jason's usual type either: "Crystal is a sad little creature. She comes from the backwoods, the sticks of Louisiana," Pulsipher says. "That's all she's ever known."
