Episode Information[]

While strange earth tremors plague the area, Mitch tries to get Jordan to meet her real biological mother on a fishing outing, who turns out to be a white woman named Rene (a shock since Jordan happens to be black), who's dying from a brain disorder and thinks the problem is hereditary. But things take a turn after a massive rouge wave, triggered by an underwater tremor, capsizes the fishing boat and traps Rene below decks in a room with toxic fumes. Meanwhile, Caroline worries that her romance with J.D. will come apart after she receives another acting job in New York and cannot refuse the chance to go back. Also, Manny and April seem to come together while they are in training with Taylor for a Coast Guard airlift emergency plan. But after a mistake which could've made matters worse by not buckling the dummy properly, Manny and April get suspended for some time, which gives enough free time to design clothes and shoes.



  • Former Baywatch regular Yasmine Bleeth (Caroline) returns to guest star in this episode.
  • In real life, Traci Bingham who played Jordan is African American and Italian from her mother's side and Native American from her father's side.
