In “Red Rose,” the people Jaya had once hated became her true friends by the end of this series. She played a major part in the entire show, and if it wasn’t for her, the others would never have escaped death. Jaya had been a master at coding; she was extremely tech-savvy and well-versed with computers. Jaya worked for Cyberdojo under her boss, Dragon Sensei. He informed them about the dangers of using Red Rose and how it forced Jacob to kill himself. Even though Jaya had been a very smart girl, people often dismissed her as a nerd and refused to include her in their plans. She would always enjoy her own company while using her laptop. Jaya hated Rochelle because she would always belittle her, but Jaya would never respond to any hate comments. Whenever there was an event or a party, Jaya was nowhere to be found. But in the end, she became a part of Wren’s group because Jaya helped them uncover the reality of Red Rose, a deadly application that keeps an eye on every move and could kill you easily. By this time, Rochelle had lost her life to this app since she had been using it quite frequently. Wren knew that Rochelle had been killed, and to find out more, she logged into Red Rose.

Jaya had been working in Manchester and found out that Wren and her friends were using the Red Rose app. This was enough for Jaya to understand that Wren’s life was in huge danger. She rushed towards her and commanded Wren to switch off her phone, and told all her friends . Then Wren and the others visited Cyberdojo to meet Dragon Sensei, who gave them the examples of Jacob Taylor and Alyssa Penrose. Both of them had lost their lives due to this app, and now the same hads happened with Rochelle, and Wren was on the list already. Jaya planned to meet Jacob’s parents and fake their stories to make his mother believe that they were his high school friends. She carefully made her way to Jacob’s bedroom and found a diary that had the entire coding format of the Red Rose application. Jaya had to find a way to crack down on this code, and it was enough proof to understand that Jacob had been the mastermind. That night, Wren’s mother, Rachel, kicked her out of the house because the Red Rose app had manipulated her messages and caused huge trouble. Wren’s father, Rick, and Rachel’s current boyfriend, Simon, fought with each other, and Wren was blamed for all of this.

How Did Jaya Help Wren And The Others?

Wren stayed at Noah and Taz’s house, and they spent all their time together. The next morning, Jaya rushed to meet them and wrote them messages since the Red Rose had been able to see everything. She told them to disconnect all the WiFi services and mobile phones to keep the Red Rose away. This time, Wren was in huge danger because Jaya had received a call from Jacob telling her that Wren would be killed soon. So, to save Wren, Jaya had this one chance, but Simon came in and took her away, stating that Rachel had been waiting for Wren all this time. Once they left, Rachel and Rick arrived and asked for Wren, and that’s when Jaya realized that Simon was the main force behind the Red Rose. Jaya had been pretty smart, and she made sure that everyone carried a feature phone to avoid any access from Red Rose. She immediately sent her text message to Wren and told her to escape. But Simon didn’t harm her and killed himself instead. For the next six weeks, things were fine until Anthony visited Jacob’s parents, and she gifted him Jacob’s iPad. Anthony found out that the Red Rose had a website too, and he informed Jaya as soon as possible. The iPad was filled with Jacob’s videos, which became a connecting link to find the password to this website and showed how Jacob had created the application.

From one of his videos, Jaya found out that Jacob had been using the dark web, and he’d created this website on the dark web itself. He connected with several others to communicate with his crush, Alyssa Penrose. But when the Red Rose members killed Alyssa, Jacob lost himself to grief and killed himself too. Jaya immediately tried several words that might be the password, but she didn’t crack the code for quite some time. Anthony and Jaya hid it from the others, but Ashley had been attacked by a stranger on a party night. She was immediately admitted to the hospital, and Jaya went missing. That night, Jaya managed to gain access to the website, but when she opened her bedroom door, her room was filled with poisonous gas. Everyone thought that Jaya was gone, but in reality, she had been hiding in her secret laboratory, which had multiple computers for her to work on. She logged into the website once again and helped the others survive the Red Rose attacks.

Did Jaya Delete The Website?

Jaya didn’t want to lose the evidence, but Noah and the others wanted it gone as soon as possible. All this time, Wren knew that Rick was about to be killed. She escaped from her house and found out that he had been brutally injured by the main member of Red Rose, the Gardener. As instructed by him, Wren traveled alone and saw how he worked with the other members. Luckily, Jaya was in touch with everyone else and managed to guide them to the Gardener’s hiding place. Jaya knew that they could keep an eye on him using their CCTV cameras, so Jaya told them to use the other roads to reach Wren. While Gardener had been planning to kill Wren, Jaya deleted the website from the dark web and brought about Wren’s victory. Toward the end, Jaya and the others arrive at the location only to find out that the man who had died had never been the Gardener. A lady arrived and spoke to Jaya about their ideas for the Red Rose app, eventually hinting that she was the Gardener. Jaya had been interested in knowing Jacob’s case because she had been into coding and other technical skills. Jaya knew that the right way to eliminate the Red Rose members would be to delete the website because it would stop them from harassing Jaya and the others.

But just as Jaya feared, the idea was soon carried to another country, and this time they called it White Rose. Maybe the previous ones were connected to people from Japan, and they had already started hunting teenagers to achieve their maniac goals. Well, in the end, Jaya saved her friends’ lives, because of her, Wren and the others were alive and achieved justice for Rochelle and Alyssa. Rochelle had been killed by the same man who tried to kill Wren and Rick. Finally, Jaya found herself with a group of friends who might love her for a lifetime because she had been a savior to all of them. Even so, this series provided a huge lesson to avoid illegal websites and the dark web. It imposed a positive impact on teenagers and depicted that friendship would play a very important part in a person’s life.
