Jasper saves Octavia from a sea serpent.

In Pilot, on a trip to Mount Weather, Jasper tries to flirt with Octavia by asking her what she was arrested for. This has the opposite effect, however, and upsets Octavia because she had been arrested for "being born" as a second child. When they arrive at a river, Jasper watches in awe as Octavia strips. When she jumps into the water he is shown to be fearful because none of them know how to swim, however, Octavia stands up, showing them that the river is not deep. When the others get undressed to join her, Jasper notices movement in the water. He orders Octavia to get out of the water, but it is too late. Octavia is attacked by the sea serpent and taken under the water. When the others realize she is still alive, Jasper jumps in to save Octavia and pulls her from the water. Octavia has several bite marks on her thigh which were left by the creature. Octavia thanks and hugs Jasper for saving her.

Later that night, Jasper sleeps near Monty with Octavia's head on his chest and Monty's head on her lap. The next morning they find another way to cross the river by swinging on vines. To impress Octavia, Jasper convinces Finn to let him swing across the river first. Landing safely on the other side Jasper finds an old sign indicating they have made it to Mount Weather. He holds the sign up into the air to show the others cheer. Moments later Jasper is pierced in the chest with a spear, leaving Octavia and the rest in shock.

In Earth Skills, Octavia learns that Jasper may still be alive. After heading back to camp to get supplies, Octavia insists on going with Clarke to rescue Jasper. Clarke tells her she can't go because her leg wound would slow them down while her brother Bellamy doesn't want her to get hurt again.
