Jessica got a makeover for their relaxing night in front of the TV, with her long caramel locks flowing freely over her shoulders.

Alongside the snap, Jessica wrote, “Thanks for watching with us!” I hope everyone enjoyed Candy!’
On set: The hitmaker shared his own footage as the duo entered their respective personas, murderer Candy Montgomery and assistant investigator Steve Diffenbaugh.
Justin took to the comments section declaring his love for his wife writing: ‘I. Love. You. You CRUSHED THIS! »
Taking to his own Instagram, the hitmaker then shared his own images as the duo got into their respective personas.
Jessica was almost unrecognizable as she transformed completely into the accused murderer, who gained notoriety for allegedly killing her friend Betty Gore with an ax on June 13, 1980.
Meanwhile, Justin rocked his vintage-clad cop as he confirmed, “The belly is fake, the hair is fake, the mustache is real.”

Last month’s chilling trailer saw Candy being put on trial and answering questions about her relationship with Betty (played by Melanie Lynskey), the woman she admitted to killing.
The preview began at a baby shower for Betty, who takes the time to say how “touched” she is by Candy’s generosity, compassion and friendship.
“You’re just a sweetheart,” the late fifth-grade teacher tells her friend as the clip shows Biel’s character embarking on a months-long affair with husband Allan Gore.

Creepy music starts playing in the background as Candy admits she feels “awful” to one of her friends about sleeping with Betty’s husband.
“Candy, we were so close,” Betty tells Candy in one scene, before her friend-turned-enemy brushes her off, saying she’s been so “busy” lately.
The sequence then cuts to Candy telling Allan that she thinks Candy knows about their relationship and is visiting Betty.
The full story of Betty’s murder and Candy’s subsequent acquittal was featured in Texas Monthly as a two-part series in 1984. The report served as source material for “Love and Death”.

Candy was eventually charged with murder and released on bail with the full support of her church.
She hired Don Crowder, a lawyer she knew from the church, to represent her. They agreed that she would meet with Dr. Fred Fason, a psychiatrist and clinical hypnotist, to help her remember what happened the night of Betty’s murder for her trial.
Dr. Fason determined after a few hypnosis sessions that Candy suffered from a childhood trauma that triggered her rage as an adult. She told the jury that Betty confronted her about her affair with Allan and initially attacked her with the axe, saying she turned the murder weapon on her former friend in self-defense .

Candy landed 41 blows on Betty’s body – 40 of them while her heart was still beating – but she insisted she didn’t want to kill her. After the jury heard the final arguments, Candy was found not guilty.
The Montgomerys stayed together after the trial and moved to Georgia, but later divorced. It was reported that Candy now goes by her maiden name Candace Wheeler and works as a mental health therapist for teens and adults.
The case then inspired the CBS TV movie “A Killing in a Small Town”, which aired on May 22, 1990.
Horrible: “In this community, it was a big shock,” she told police. ‘We were friends’
Tragic: While the trailer doesn’t show what happens between the women, Betty eventually dies and the cops start looking for the killer, who they suspect is a ‘vagabond’ or a ‘strongman’.
Hulu picked up ‘Candy in December 2020, while it was revealed this week that Elizabeth Olsen will star Candy’s HBO Max adaptation of the case.
Originally, Elisabeth Moss was cast in the Hulu series, but had to pull out due to a scheduling conflict.
“We can’t imagine a more perfect performer to play the lead role of Candy than Elizabeth Olsen. Her talent, charisma and energy can bewitch audiences like no other,” said Sarah Aubrey, HBO’s Head of Original Content. Max, in a statement.
