Mrs. Root often attended a sermon by Jesse Custer with her family. A few days later, she stared blankly into the TV.[1]

A few weeks later, while her family were eating dinner, she continued to stare blankly into the TV.[2]


Mrs Root is seemingly quiet and shy. When Jesse Custer came to visit Eugene and greeted her, Mrs. Root just continued to blankly stare into the TV without a response.
