Eric Kripke has notably killed off love interests named Jessica in multiple projects of his — 2005 movie Boogeyman, Supernatural, and now his new show Timeless.

In the first trailer for the new NBC time travel series, we learn that Delta Force soldier Wyatt’s wife has died. On Twitter, Kripke revealed that this woman’s name is Jessica.

When someone tweeted in response, “dude you sure hate the name Jessica,” Kripke confessed, “To be honest, inspired by a girl from my youth. Broke my heart.”

Killing off TV Jessicas — what a way to get your revenge… or pay tribute. We’re not sure how Kripke’s wife feels about this.
