Appearances (6/6) 

Season 3 (6/6)


  • He used to love Marcus when they were younger, but his increasing bitterness, sadism and  self-righteousness took the better of him after Marcus decided to take the mantle of Deion.
  • However, his dying speech shows that part of him still cared about his brother, unlike any of the killers throughout the franchise.
  • Jay's death sitting down at the hands of Marcus is similar to Kate Roberts's death in Scream 4 at Sidney's hands.
  • Jay's hatred for Marcus is a reference to both Roman and Jill's hatred towards Sidney.
  • Beth used to be his close friend and partner, until she had a change of heart and decided to tell the cops about him.
  • His and Beth's relationship is similar to Jill Roberts and Charlie Walker's relationship.
  • He had a short period of being attracted to Kym, until he found out that Marcus sent her to gather information.
  • He plotted to kill Hook Man and Tommy Jenkins ever since he was eight, and came to hate Avery Collins after finding out how cruel Avery is.
  • Jay's rightful killing of Avery can be seen as similar to Roman killing John Milton in Scream 3, as well as killing Hook Man similar to him killing Cotton Weary.



  • In a promotional teaser, Jay is called 'The Hustler'.
  • Jay is the half-brother of Marcus Elliot and the stepson of Sherry Elliot, with them sharing the same father.
  • Him and Marcus's family connection is a homage to Roman Bridger and Sidney Prescott, due to them sharing Maureen Prescott as their mother. His character is also homage to Roman.
  • In the finale, we learn the he was one of the killers, and wanted revenge on Marcus for taking Deion’s identity and getting him killed.
  • Jay is the first male lead since Billy Loomis, Mickey Altieri, and Kieran Wilcox in the franchise to have a male character lead with more incentive motive to a murder spree, since Scream 2 and Scream 4, as well as Season 1 which follow female characters (Mrs. Loomis, Jill Roberts, and Piper Shaw) leading killing sprees with somewhat more deeper motive than the men, making Jay and Roman the only ones with far more incentive.
  • He was killed by his accomplice, Beth, just like Charlie Walker before him. Beth planned to kill him from the beginning, but killed him earlier than intended after she found out Jay planned to tell the cops about her.
