Jake and Vicky were spooked as they contemplated Marley's capacity for wrongdoing.

Sofia told Paulina that she regrets that she was not the first woman to give Matt a child. Cass and Matt helped a frantic Lila deliver a healthy baby girl that Matt and Lila named Jasmine.

Jordan laughed wickedly when Matt, Sofia, and Lila noticed that Jasmine was not in the elevator.
OCTOBER 26, 1998 (EP. #8723)
Grant mercilessly ridiculed Cindy because the panicked crowd at the Lumina Ball drowned out the sound system while it played the tape.

Donna dropped the crystal she was holding as Marley fibbed to Tyrone that Donna was home all night, despite Tyrone's fuzzy recollections of Donna being at the ball.

Cameron and Josie told Gary that they were discussing the secrets and lies that the Lumina Foundation is keeping when Gary interrupted their hushed conversation, which was actually about Josie carrying Cameron's child. Toni refused to believe Chris's claims that he is not seeing another woman because Toni smelled cheap perfume on Chris, which he wore while donning "The Love Lady" costume at the ball. Chris angrily told Toni to seek him out once she is ready to believe his word and trust in his fidelity. Matt apologized to Lila for being selfish during her pregnancy and swore that they will raise Jasmine together as a family.

Jake left several threatening messages on Jordan's answering machine, which involved retaliating against Jordan because Jasmine is missing.

Zak grabbed Lila just as lightning struck. Lila was astonished when Zak commented that they have similar powers inside of themselves.
OCTOBER 29, 1998 (EP. #8726)

Cameron slipped out the door when Josie unexpectedly found Gary in the waiting room of the doctor's office. Cass was startled to find himself in a bed in New York. Margaret told Cass that he experienced a blackout while waiting for Jordan at a bar and that a doctor determined that Cass's blackouts are result of head trauma.

Lila ignored Cass's warnings about Zak and asked him to take her to the Lumina Foundation right away.
NOVEMBER 4, 1998 (EP. #8730)
Jake was livid when Marley stated that she never absorbed the trauma of the rape because Vicky took control of the situation and was hell-bent on exacting vengeance against Jake, despite that Marley did not want the rape to become public knowledge. Jake stormed out once Marley asserted that she cannot understand that Vicky could marry a man she was determined to utterly destroy. Marley told a flabbergasted Donna that she believes that Vicky took her place in the courtroom during Marley's trial for Jake's shooting because she was keeping her away from Jake instead of helping her deal with the rape. Etta Mae reminded Vicky of the family she has with Jake, Steven, and Kirkland to ease her concerns about Marley's erratic behavior.
