J.D. is assigned to patient Jordan Sullivan, a beautiful but ill-tempered young woman who happens to be an important hospital board member. Hoping Jordan can get Dr. Cox's suspension lifted, J.D. attempts to befriend Jordan and winds up sleeping with her. To J.D.'s horror, he discovers that Jordan was married to Dr. Cox, and their divorce was far from pleasant. As awkward as the situation may be, J.D. suggests to Dr. Cox that he should ask Jordan for help in order to his job back. Dr. Cox refuses to do so and is adamant about not having any form of contact with his much hated ex-wife. J.D. pleads with Jordan to discuss Dr. Cox's suspension at the next board meeting and she spitefully refuses. However she has a change of heart and overturns Dr. Kelso's decision. Dr. Cox suspension is lifted and he returns to his job.
