It's Katie and Henry's wedding day. As Katie gets dressed in the locker room, Jennifer tries to draw Mike's feelings out about Katie getting married but Mike shuts her down and tells her he doesn't want to talk about it. Meanwhile, Henry worries that Mike might declare his love for Katie and stop the wedding. Even though he knew it was a possibility, he isn't prepared for it to happen. Privately, Margo asks Katie if she's sure about marrying Henry and Katie insists she loves Henry. With minutes to spare before the ceremony is to begin, Henry tells Mike he'd gladly step aside for someone Katie loves more than him. Mike then goes to see Katie in the locker room and questions whether she can live a life without passion. Katie responds that she's had passion and it didn't work. She's ready to give it a go with a man who loves her unconditionally and will never leave her. When Mike doesn't say anything to stop her, Katie bids him goodbye. The wedding then begins and the minister asks if anyone objects.

All eyes are on Emily as she freezes when asked if she remembers who drugged her. She runs from the interrogation room, leaving Barbara to wonder if Rosanna's hypnosis of Emily worked. Rosanna insists she did her best and admits she feels terrible about what she's doing to Emily but Barbara reminds her she's doing it all to get back her son. When Emily makes clear it wasn't Barbara who drugged her, Paul accuses his mother of threatening Emily but Barbara tells him to finally accept that she's innocent. Later, Rosanna hurries home and gets a call from James warning her not to let her emotions get in her way. Emily then shows up, locks eyes with Rosanna and says she knows it was Rosanna who drugged her.

On a business trip, Dusty and Sierra tour a spa that they are interested in buying. Dusty balks at taking a mud bath but playful Sierra teases him into it. Later, to Dusty and Sierra's chagrin, the spa's owners inform the World Wide team that they're not interested in selling to a huge, impersonal corporation. However, Sierra jumps in to salvage the deal by claiming she and Dusty are married and that their business is indeed a family owned and operated one.

A hush falls over the room when the minister asks Katie and Henry's wedding guests if anyone objects to their union. Henry was relieved when there were no objections and the wedding proceeded. However, Katie refused to say the vows he chose (lyrics from a Barry Manilow song) and replaced them with her own heartfelt words about her "soul mate." When they are pronounced man and wife, Henry cries "Thank you Bubbles! You've made me the happiest man alive!" But if Henry is the happiest, Mike is the unhappiest -- misery is written all over his face. He runs from the room after the ceremony and Jennifer follows him into the locker room just in time to see him slam a fist into a locker. He tells Jennifer he is okay, but she knows differently. Her day improves greatly, however, when Craig whisks her off to a country western bar for a meeting with Scott Reeves, a singer she wants to hire for her Street Jeans campaign. Scott is flattered but not interested in advertising. Craig, knowing Jennifer is a fabulous pool player, challenges him to a game. Scott takes the challenge thinking Jennifer doesn't look the type of woman who can play pool. But he is wrong! When Craig and Jennifer win the game, Scott agrees to help with the campaign. When they return to the wedding, they find the party is over. Jennifer also finds Mike in tears.

Sierra and Dusty are about to lose their chance to buy the spa when its free-spirited owners find out she represents WorldWide, a corporate-capitalist interest. But when they recognize her as Sierra Esteban of Montega, they are thrilled to meet their hero and tell her how much they admire what she did for the country. The couple agrees to the sale and they treat Dusty and Sierra to champagne to toast their success!

Emily simply cannot bring herself to tell Tom Hughes that she remembers it was Rosanna who drugged her instead of Barbara. She later goes to Rosanna and confronts her about her memory -- but Rosanna denies the accusation. Paul comes home and is furious with Emily, who tries to defend herself. She leaves in exhaustion and confusion. Paul and Rosanna enjoy their first Valentine's Day together, but Paul cannot forget his anger. Rosanna begs him to forget it for just the evening, and he agrees.

When Emily finds her mother, they try to figure out what drug she was given. Susan tries to help, but Emily is tired and confused. Hal is glad to find them -- he's been looking for Emily. He asks her to come home with him that evening so that he can take care of her. A very tired, but very happy, Emily agrees to join him.
