Valerie McAllister, Betrayal
Valerie McAllister (Elizabeth McLaughlin). Betrayal was a limited 13 episode drama centered around Sara and Jack, both married, who were having an affair. Valerie was Jack’s daughter who met Jules, Jack’s witty assistant and a computer hacker. Jules flirted with Valerie and showed off her hacking skills by managing to get her phone number, before asking her on a date by writing the question on a bus.
Valerie was out to her parents, and Jules also came out to Jack when she tells him she had asked his daughter out. However, the two didn’t get a lot of screentime after episodes 2 and 3, when they met and started dating.
Valerie and Jules were shown on a date in episode 8, when they ran into Delphine, one of Jules’ exes. Delphine told Valerie to “watch out” and that Jules “broke a lot of hearts”. Valerie, who was upset finding out about her father’s affair, broke up with Jules as a result. In episode 9, Jules gave her a promise ring, swearing not to cheat or lie to her. They got back together and made out on a bed.
Jules and Valerie were still together towards the end of the series in 1×11, and they seem to be one of the only pairings who survived on the show, though they didn’t have a closing storyline.
