Jack is emotionally attached to Marlo and Dylan. Much to his surprised, Marlo dumped him for Steve, a total loser and scumbag. To mend his broken heart, Jack went to Spain and met a prostitute named Selina. He like her and wanted to take her back home but she can’t leave her parents behind.

In the meantime, Marlo dumped Steve and went back to Jack’s arm as everything went well again. Jack was diagnosed with leukemia and underwent chemotherapy.
