This seems like a subtle rendering bug. Here is an even simpler case: line = Table[{x, 1}, {x, 1, 10}]; line[[1, 2]] = 1.*^7; Graphics[ {Point@line, Line[line]}, AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio, PlotRange -> {0, 2}, Axes -> True] Whether the line displays depends on the relation of the outlier to the max Plot range. Decrease the outlier by a factor of 10 OR increase {0,2} to {0,20} and the line will reappear.

Try the below evaluations in order: Here are two {x,y} data series: data = Table[Table[{4. i, RandomReal[]}, {i, 1, 18}], {2}]; ListPlot[data, Joined -> {False, True}, PlotRange -> {All, {0, 0.5}}] So far, so good. Now replace the 1st point in the second data series with a large-magnitude outlier: data[[2, 1]] = {4., 1.*10^9}; ListPlot[data, Joined -> {False, True}, PlotRange -> {All, {0, 0.5}}] What happened to the joined curve (2nd data series) -- it's gone! But now change the "All" to "Full" in PlotRange: ListPlot[data, Joined -> {False, True}, PlotRange -> {Full, {0, 0.5}}] Everything's now okay - the joined curve is back!
