Monday, July 16, 2018

Nelle arrived at the altar, noting that Chase stood at the back, and Ned began the wedding. When he started the part about anyone speaking up if they had a reason that Michael and Nelle shouldn't be married, all were surprised to hear Carly yell, "Hell, no!" Ava stealthily got on the phone as Carly ranted about how Michael couldn't marry Nelle because Nelle was "dangerous and deadly." Michael reminded his mother that they were adults, and it was what they wanted.

Chase stepped in and advised everyone that he had to take Carly in, as a call had already been put in to the cops. She instructed Sonny to stay and make sure the wedding didn't happen, but he wanted to go with her. Sam promised to look after Mike so that Jason could go, as well. Carly reminded everyone of all the terrible things Nelle had done, and she looked straight at Ava while saying that Nelle had definitely had help.

When Carly was gone, Bobbie spat the Ava had wasted no time, calling the cops. She thought that Ava should have some compassion, but Ava shot back that "when it comes your daughter, I'm fresh out." Bobbie thought that karma would get Ava, and she stormed off. Griffin approached Ava, but she pretended not to see and went over to Nelle. Nelle wanted to continue with the wedding, but she suddenly doubled over in pain. Michael called Lucas over, and Lucas thought that they needed to go to the hospital, so they left.

Josslyn confided in Oscar that Carly hadn't seemed crazy at all when she'd burst into the wedding. Sam offered to take Mike home, as it didn't look like there would be a wedding. Mike agreed, and Drew offered to go to serve as company. Bobbie believed that Nelle was faking, but Lulu hoped the baby was all right. Brad suggested that Nelle and Michael actually loved each other and wanted to start a family. Just then, Brad's phone went off, and he walked away to answer it.

Griffin thought that Ava was avoiding him, but she denied it. She maintained that she was just worried about Nelle, but Griffin wondered if she was worried about Carly's "parting shot" about Nelle having help. Ava thought that the comment showed how "delusional" Carly had become. Griffin talked through the possibility of Carly having not imagined her claims, but he couldn't explain how. He thought they should call it a night, and she proposed that they call it a night "together."

Michael was waiting outside of Nelle's hospital room when Lucas emerged. He assured Michael that Nelle and the baby were fine, but Nelle was going to stay overnight as a precaution. Michael entered the room, and Nelle proposed that they finish what they'd started and get married that night. Michael eventually agreed and called Ned. Ned agreed to meet them at the hospital, and he hung up. He updated Olivia, who thought they should "pump the brakes." Ned replied that he'd promised, so she asked him to send her regards, and he left.

Chase escorted Carly into the police station, followed by Sonny and Jason. Sonny didn't think there was a reason for Carly to be there, as she hadn't hurt anyone. On the contrary, Jordan updated everyone on what Carly had done to Mary Pat in order to escape. She added that it would be up to a judge to decide Carly's fate. Her phone went off, and she walked away to answer it.

When Jordan returned, she told everyone that Nelle was in the hospital. Jason's phone went off, and he answered it to Michael, who told him about the wedding. When he was off the phone, he updated the group about Michael and Nelle's wedding plans. Carly demanded that the wedding be stopped, but Sonny insisted that Michael had a plan. Jordan suggested that Chase escort Jason and have a "chat" with Nelle.

Sonny scolded Carly for her actions, as he wouldn't be able to do anything for her without the D.A. catching wind of it. He assured her that Michael was handling things, but she refused to lose another son. She made Sonny promise that he would protect Michael at all costs, and he promised. Jordan instructed an officer to take Carly back to Ferncliff, and they left.

Ned and Josslyn entered Nelle's hospital room, followed by Jason, and Nelle and Michael were glad to have everyone there. As Ned restarted the ceremony, Chase stood in the doorway. He left as the couple both said, "I do." Michael and Nelle exchanged their rings, and Ned pronounced them husband and wife. The newlyweds shared a kiss, and everyone congratulated them. Ned needed to sign their marriage license, so he got a pen from Jason and signed it. He promised to file the certificate the next morning.

Francesca entered and declared the party over, as Nelle needed to get some rest. Ned, Jason, and Josslyn left, and Michael said a private goodbye to Nelle. She was disappointed that he wouldn't be staying with her on their wedding night, but he reminded her that they'd have the rest of their lives to make up for it. She agreed, and Michael left. "I couldn't leave without kissing the bride," Chase said as he entered the room.

Nelle revealed that Chase had almost convinced her that Michael didn't love her, but he'd been wrong. "What now?" he wondered. He didn't think a ring would stop Michael from trying to take her child away. He wondered why Michael would leave her alone on their wedding night if he really loved her. "I wouldn't," he added. She raised her hand to hit him, but he caught it before she could. "Congratulations, Janelle," he smirked, and he left the room. She slowly got out of bed.

Michael found Josslyn and wondered why she seemed distracted. She revealed that there was a "situation" that she didn't know how to handle. She told Michael about walking in on Nelle and Chase kissing. "I'm not worried," Michael admitted to a surprised Josslyn. He asked her to trust him, as he had everything under control. Nelle listened in from around the corner.

Brad entered the hospital and found Lucas, as he had "great news" about the baby. He revealed that the birth mother had passed her latest exam "with flying colors," and their baby was "perfectly healthy." Brad excitedly told Lucas that they were going to become parents.

Ned returned to the Metro Court and sat down with Olivia and Lulu. Lulu would have "bet money" that Carly would have gotten through to Michael. "Who said she didn't?" Olivia replied. "Nothing changes your priorities like parenthood," she added. She unenthusiastically toasted to "Mr. and Mrs. Michael Corinthos III" and the arrival of their baby. "That's the spirit," Ned said as they clinked their glasses together, and they drank.

Jason returned to the police station, and Sonny informed him that Carly had been taken back to Ferncliff. Jason dreaded Mary Pat's retaliation on Carly. Sonny kicked himself for not realizing that Carly was going to do something stupid after she'd been so calm and reasonable with him. Sonny wanted to call Diane about "new evidence" that would prove that the D.A. had scapegoated Carly because of him. Jason decided to call Spinelli.

Sam, Drew, and Mike arrived at Sonny's, and Mike offered to pour them drinks. They agreed, and he asked them how they'd met. Sam admitted that they had once been married, and Mike expressed sympathy for their divorce as he handed them drinks. He advised them that all they could do was follow their hearts. Sam thought that Mike should get some rest, and he joked that it was code for "mind your own business."

Mike said goodnight and went upstairs. Sam and Drew clinked their glasses together and drank. She agreed with Mike's sentiment about following one's heart. She thought that if someone was afraid to love because they didn't want to get hurt, they were just cheating themselves. Drew wondered if she would do things the same all over again, knowing how it had ended up. She assured him that she didn't regret their time together, and she never would.

"I don't know what you were thinking. You have a sweet deal here," Rupert said as he escorted Carly back to her room. She revealed that Sonny would be very disappointed if her "special privileges" didn't continue, and Rupert wondered if that was a threat. "It's a fact," she clarified. He wondered why she'd done what she had. She revealed that, when someone had a child in danger, they would do anything.
