The "counter" option under branch dialog should be the answer to this. However I'm running into a similar bug on my build.
I put the counter event pointing to a final piece of dialog, however once that event has concluded it continues from the original counter location.
EG: Event 1 - dialog Event 2 - counter points to line 15 Event 15 - dialog Event 3 - dialog
I would expect Line 16 to play instead of line 3.
