Character Analysis

Frankie’s daughter, and one of the many too-young girls that Dean lusts after and that Sal tries to protect. Sal and Dean’s interaction with Janet is a perfect example of what they each look for in girls; Sal talks to her about the "little things that interest" her, whereas Dean letches after her sexually. Sal wants soul-connections, Dean wants sex.
