Death Edit

Jake Ballard Edit

Jake and Elise were married long before Jake met Olivia. Jake moved on from Elise because he thought she was dead since they were both spies. When the Lazarus 1 happened and Jake and Charlie went to Paris, they met again.

Jake told Elise how they were great together and then they still have feelings for each other so they stayed married. Jake convinced Elise to come to D.C with him and she did. But then later, Jake found out that Elise is only in D.C, U.S because she was on a mission of killing Rowan from the people running Lazarus 1.

After Olivia called Jake to tell about her engagement to Fitz, Jake suddenly changed his mind and asked Elise what's the plan and told her that he will meet her up at the Union Station. However, when he got to the Station, he found Elise dead sitting on a bench.
