Storylines

Jordan was stunned when her brother, Ben Weston, turned up in Salem. Jordan wasn't happy to see Ben because they had separated to escape there past. Jordan and eventually relaxed, and let Ben back into her life. Jordan and Ben were terrified to see Clyde in Salem. Clyde wanted to reconnect with Jordan and Ben, but they both rejected him. Jordan's relationship with Rafe fell apart, and she started dating Chad DiMera, who Ben didn't trust. Ben and Clyde started to get closer much to Jordan's dismay. Feeling constantly threatened by Clyde, Jordan held Clyde at gunpoint, planning to kill him. Clyde tried to talk Jordan down, but Jordan couldn't get past the fact that Clyde allowed her to be raped (it is unclear if Clyde raped Jordan as well). Worried that Jordan would ruin his relationship with Ben, Clyde blackmailed Jordan into backing off by threatening to expose the fact that Jordan caused the accident that killed her and Ben's mother. Jordan was terrified of losing Ben, so she stepped aside and supported Ben's relationship with Clyde. Jordan was furious when she learned Chad DiMera had provoked Ben into assaulting him. They broke up, and Jordan got a job offer in New York City. Jordan accepted the offer and left Salem, but not before warning Clyde that she would tell Ben about him being involved in her rape if he ever hurt Ben.

In 2016, when Clyde escaped Prison, Rafe contacted her to see if she was contacted by Clyde, but she informs him that she hasn't spoken to Clyde and she doesn't want to. It was revealed on October 9, 2017 that Clyde has visited Ben using Jordan's name as an alias.

Jordan returned and kidnapped Ciara Brady, having suffered a mental breakdown and believing Ben to be dangerous. She also kidnapped Abigail and Chad’s newborn Charlotte DiMera. She ran into Kate, who figured out Jordan had kidnapped Charlotte and went to call the police when Jordan jabbed her with a syringe. Jordan also visited Ben and told him he was sick and tried to get him to return to Bayview, but Ben refused. Jordan ran into Rex Brady, who noticed she had a scar on her neck. Jordan said she was in a car accident a year ago. Jordan returned to the cabin and set it on fire with Ciara still trapped inside. Ben and Hope rescued her, and Jordan shows up rat the hospital where she knocked Ben out with an injection struggled with Ciara until Ben woke up and attacked Jordan. Jordan was arrested and it was revealed that she had intentionally killed her mother years ago when she claimed it was an accident. When Jordan remembered that she had intentionally killed her mother, it caused her break from reality. She was later sent to Bayview for treatment and Hope made sure she'd stay there. On March 29, 2019, it was revealed Jordan has a son unknown to everyone, she then tells she didn't set the cabin on fire or didn't mean to kidnap Charlotte, but also confessed she has a son named David Ridgeway to her ex-boyfriend Rafe, then his mother Jordan cries into Rafe's arms and hug each other. In September 2019, Jordan is released from Bayview and goes to live with Rafe and her son. Jordan still doesn’t want Ben around David and maintains that he is a danger to Ciara and something will happen to her.

Jordan and Rafe Halloween 2019.

On October 31st, Ben has a nightmare that Jordan breaks Claire Brady our of Bayview and they go on a crime spree together, killing J.J. Deveraux, Haley Chen, and Ciara. They then dig graves and are joined by Claire's grandmother Marlena Evans, who reveals herself as ths Salem. Impressed, Jordan says now she knows where Claire gets it from. Marlena says she is proud of her granddaughter and Claire hugs her, saying she feels validated. Ben wakes up just after he arrives in the nightmare to find Ciara's dead body.

On November 8, 2019 Jordan breaks into Ben and Ciara's place and breaks the glass of a frame that has Ciara's picture. Ben finds Jordan's supposed dead body when he comes home with her scarf wrapped tightly around her neck.

A year later, it was revealed that Christian Maddox (David's father and Jordan's ex), was the one who murdered her. The two of them were having a heated argument about David which led to Christian strangling Jordan to death. In the end, Jordan got justice after Christian was sentenced to prison for murdering her. However, in June 10, 2021, all of Jordan's wishes (that Rafe would raise David) were erased and forgotten, when David's aunt and his father's sister, Zoey Burge won custody over him against Rafe and became David's legal guardian. She left town with him that very same day. As David's new legal guardian, Zoey allowed Ben to visit him from time to time, as she wants David to be surrounded by those who love him.
