Season 2 Edit
Having always dreamed of working for The Devils basketball team, alongside his father, Jude enters into this treacherous world as a budding sports agent for new, star player Zero. On his first day at the Devil's Arena, Jude gives it his all to try and impress his father, Oscar, despite their somewhat estranged relationship. His first order of business begins with Lionel Davenport and ensuring her presence at each and every one of the Devil's games. While Lionel agrees at first, she soon draws away from the agreement after realizing that her husband, Pete Davenport, is in a relationship with Raquel and that she simply cannot be at every home game if her husband is cozying up to another woman in front of her. So Jude is forced to break them up in a bid to keep Lionel around so that Oscar will be pleased with him. Amidst these happenings, we learn that Jude was in contact with Olivia before her murder after it is revealed that he, like many of the other characters are in possession of a red envelope. Olivia had something on everyone with a red envelope, something bad that could tear them down and for Jude, it was the fact that he had distributed cocaine to one of the Devils star players, Derek Roman and also that he was gay, something his father didn't know about. These truths come out when Jude stumbles upon Sloane and Raquel scheming to take Oscar down. He makes a deal with them that he won't tell Oscar if they give him all the information that they already have about him but this later escalates when Sloane and Raquel discover Jude's secret about the cocaine and his sexuality. He eventually decides to drop the whole ordeal if they both back away from it.
Near the end of season 2, Jude became involved in a sexual relationship with Zero. In that moment there, the ship name #Zude was born. At the end of season 2, Jude demands that either Zero be with him publicly or not at all. He tells him that he would love to take him out to dinner and get to know the real him.
