Character History

The Fix

Dr. Witherson visits Niki in the padded room, and talks with her about her alter ego, Jessica. Niki initially refuses Dr. Witherson's offers of help or treatment, but after a visit from D.L. accepts the offer so she can get back to Micah. Dr. Withers insists that she has to talk with both of her personalities, but Niki refuses at first. Dr. Witherson says that if she doesn't cooperate, she won't get to see her son for a long time. She gets up to leave, but Niki calls her back.


Dr. Witherson works with Niki to manifest her alter ego. Niki warns the psychiatrist, but Dr. Witherson feels secure that Niki is restrained and that there is a taser nearby. When Jessica takes control, the doctor reaches for the taser, but it is too late. Jessica attacks Dr. Witherson, repeatedly tasering the woman.


  • Whether Dr. Witherson works directly in Niki's jail or whether she has a separate practice is unclear.
