quote:This is never fully explained within the series, but it would seem to be the most logical turn of events.
Sorry, but that's convenience, not logic. The character acts like Cordelia for as long as the writers need the audience to see her that way. In the meantime, we're supposed to believe that she's been completely taken over by Jasmine and is pursuing a complex series of steps designed to -- what? Apparently keep everyone occupied while she sleeps with Connor and gives birth to herself. By the time she sleeps with Connor, she's already summoned the Beast, sent him out to kill the Ra-tet and killed off the Nordic Priestesses. That requires more than Jasmine having "influence" or making the occasional appearance. The only explanation consistent with what's revealed in "Inside Out" is that Jasmine's been fully in control since the end of "Spin the Bottle". But the writers had to make her behave like Cordelia so that the audience wasn't prematurely tipped off.
