Julia witnessed Levi Young’s shocking suicide in last week’s episode of ‘Notorious,’ sending everything into limbo. On the Oct. 20 episode, Oscar found out about Jake’s big secret, and Julia’s new love interest might be the one thing that breaks Julia and Jake’s friendship.
Poor Julia. The girl just can’t catch a break. She had to watch Levi put a gun to his head and pull the trigger, and now his blood is pooling around her feet. Even though she probably needs therapy, Julia’s got to get back to work.
When Jake wants to talk with Julia about what she’s going to say to the police, she avoids him like the plague. She looks like she’s about to break. The DA gets right to the point and asks if she thinks Levi killed Sarah. Julia doesn’t hold back. She doesn’t think Levi murdered Sarah.
In the middle of the interview, the DA is given an envelope of the photo of Sarah and Jake in bed together. At that point, he knows there’s something Julia’s not telling him.
Jake’s driving into work when a pregnant woman is standing in his parking space. The woman tells him she doesn’t want the baby and the baby isn’t even hers. She’s 9 months pregnant and a surrogate for two parents. But the thing is, she’s never met the parents. They suddenly stopped responding to her. She doesn’t know what to do. She doesn’t want to dump the baby in foster care. That’s a soft spot for Jake. He spent time in foster care when he was a child.
Meanwhile, Ryan and Ella are having a little morning booty call. Seriously, these two are the hottest couple alive. Their playtime is cut short when Ella realizes she’s super late for work.
Julia continues to struggle with the aftermath of Levi’s suicide. Jake comes to Julia with an exclusive video of Levi going off on Sarah at her wedding to Oscar. Jake wants Julia to run the video so it can help Oscar. That’s when Julia snaps and tells Jake that Levi was in love with Oscar. That’s why Levi thought Sarah was wrong for Oscar.
The DA shows up Jake’s office and baits him with talk of an affair. Unfortunately, he doesn’t admit to it. The DA, named Max Gilford, now knows there’s something rotten with this case. Jake storms into Julia’s office and accuses her of telling Max about his affair. Julia shuts him down hard.
Julia goes to lunch with the DA, with her main goal being getting him on the show. From the moment they sit down, there’s a spark between them. I sense a romance!
Jake and Julia finally patch things up after their little tiff. Jake offers Julia the exclusive on the case of the mission parents. He gets the pregnant woman, Jenna, on the air. In the best instance of breaking news ever, Jenna’s water breaks on the air! In a shocking twist, the parents of the baby come to Jake’s office. They reveal that they’re not the biological parents, but they have a contract to adopt the baby. However, the fertility lawyer scammed the parents from the start.
The parents are united with the baby at the hospital. Everything is perfect and as it should be. But a woman from Child Protective Services shows up and ruins everything. Because the parents aren’t the baby’s biological parents, CPS has to take the baby until the biological parents can be found. It’s a brutal scene. No baby deserves to be in foster care when a loving family is there waiting.
When Jake sits down with the fertility lawyer, she spills the beans. The egg and sperm were random donors in Prague. She had intended on selling the baby again. The police are waiting for the lawyer when Jake is finished with her.
Since the donors surrendered the parental rights when they became donors. That allows Jenna the ability to give the baby to the parents that are dying to have a child of their own.
Someone slipped Oscar the picture of Sarah and Jake in bed together. He calls Jake to prison and punches him in the face. Oscar is furious that Jake betrayed him like this. Oscar fires Jake right then and there. Oscar and Jake’s fight is seen by none other than Max. He’s been watching them. Now that he knows that Oscar didn’t know about the affair, he wants all the information about JAKE!
