Afton first showed up for her brother Mitch's wedding to Lucy, and wound up throwing herself at J.R. and sleeping with him upstairs during the wedding. At first, there was every sense that she was just going to be another floozy girl of J.R.'s who he uses and discards as he pleases, keeping them in an apartment, showing up when he needs to, and using them to please reluctant or important clients. But, as time wore on, it saw more in Afton than that, and soon Afton saw more in herself. She told J.R. to go to hell, and quickly fell head over heels for his chief nemisis, Cliff Barnes, of all people, and this is when Afton truly became who she was.
