At the private dining room, Macy reacts to Thorne's gentle arm rubbing by telling him he shouldn't be here since she's getting married tomorrow.

Edward advises Rick and Amber that he can't do anything about adopting Little Eric for now and certainly not before the wedding tomorrow.

She tells Brooke how good it feels to finally be holding all the cards, to not be in Brooke's shadow anymore. Brooke says she is only trying to help Macy. She challenges that Macy doesn't really love Deacon but only wants to marry him to steal Rick and Amber's child and to get back at her for taking Thorne away from her. Macy tries to laugh it off as nothing more than Brooke's ego talking. Brooke changes her tone, telling Macy she will do anything to protect her family and promises her that if she goes through with the wedding, one wink, one word from her and she can have Deacon back anytime she wants him. She warns Macy that if she doesn't walk away from the wedding, Brooke will take another husband away from her and break her heart again.
