ORIGINAL CAST MEMBER JOSIE BISSETT REPRISES HER ROLE AS JANE ANDREWS MANCINI - Jane Mancini (guest star Josie Bissett), Sydney's (Laura Leighton) sister, comes to Melrose Place and announces that she inherited the building from Sydney. Jane threatens to show incriminating emails Ella (Katie Cassidy) sent to Syndey to the police unless Ella allows her to dress one of her up-and-coming clients for a movie premiere in a Jane Mancini original design. Desperate, Ella turns to David (Shaun Sipos) for help. Detective Rodriguez (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez) shows up at Violet's (Ashlee Simpson-Wentz) apartment asking questions about her connection to Sydney, but she flees though the window. Lauren (Stephanie Jacobsen) meets a John (guest star Sam Page) at the hotel bar after being stood up by Toby (guest star Adam Kaufman) and decides to take her new side job to the next level. However, upon leaving the hotel, Lauren is stopped by Wendi (guest star Kelly Carlson, "Nip/Tuck"), a madam who has a deal with the hotel, who threatens Lauren if she ever sees her in there again. Fred Toye directed the episode written by Daniel Thomsen Dries (#103).
