When Jill discovered that John knew about her indiscretion and had left town and Jabot, she quit her job there too.
When John returned to Genoa City and Jabot two years later, Jill tried to explain about the night with Jack, but John had difficulty accepting it.
After her recovery, Patty told Jack that she wanted another baby, and to move out of the Abbott Mansion into their own house.
Once John recovered, he filed for divorce, and threw Jack out of the house and Jabot.
Jack Abbott and Victor Newman have always been bitter rivals in love and business.
Jack and Jill's lovemaking at the cabin was captured on film by Lindsay Wells, a former lover of Jack's, and Lindsay used it to blackmail them.
When Jill later discovered that she was pregnant, her dilemma over who was the father led to a miscarriage when she mysteriously "fell" from a ladder.
Patty had lost any memory of the shooting or what had led to it until Jack and her psychiatrist forced her to remember by re-enacting the shooting.
Once she remembered, she left town and divorced Jack.
Jack admitted how cruel he had been to her, and begged her to shoot him instead. One of the bullets left Jack paralyzed, but he eventually recovered after surgery.
Patty's father Carl was the detective working the case, and was convinced that Jill had been the shooter.
