Elton was in a tizzy because of the motorcycle in the front yard taking away the ambiance of the wedding. Luke left and went to see Lucky. Audrey, Bobbie, Laura and Lesley went to present Liz with the old, new, borrowed and blue for her wedding. Audrey gave her a pearl necklace her and Steve had picked up in France as her old. Laura gave her a nice handkerchief to carry with her as her new. It was a tradition in their family. Gia presented her with a borrowed diamond bracelet. Bobbie gave her a nice blue scarf. Later, after Liz was dressed in her beautiful wedding gown, she told Gia how wrong she had been about her, she knew she really loved Nikolas. Gia blurted out to Liz that Lucky didn't love her anymore.
Port Charles Hotel:
Alan, Monica, AJ and Skye were having dinner and discussing the fact of Edward leaving all his money to Melissa. They argued as only the Q's can argue. Edward walked in with Melissa and Roy just then.
Carly set Zander up on a blind date. She said he had to get on with his life. He asked what she would be doing on New Year's Eve and she said she would be conceptualizing, imaging what her new club would look like. Just then Alexis and Sonny walked in.
Sonny came over and told Alexis about Courtney, his new sister. He commented about her and her sister getting together. She said they were different because she knew her sister as a baby. He asked her out for New Year's Eve.
Ned came over to pick up Kristina and just as she told him that Alexis was sick and wasn't going out, Alexis showed up at the top of the stairs all dressed up to go out. Ned commented on the speedy recovery. Sonny showed up then and it was awkward as Sonny and Ned don't exactly get along. Ned and Kristina left and joined the rest of the Q's at the Port Charles Hotel. Alexis and Sonny left and also went to the Port Charles Hotel.
Nikolas was trying to talk sense into Lucky, to get him to admit to Liz that he didn't love her anymore. Lucky was not going to do that to Liz. They were getting married as planned. They hugged and later Luke showed up to give Lucky advice on married life. He and Nikolas shook hands and Luke left and arrived later at the house for the wedding.
Melissa told Roy about Edward leaving her all his money in his will and was afraid about what her colleagues at the hospital would think about her. Roy tried to reassure her and they were ready to go out when Edward showed up at her door with flowers and an invitation to go out with him for New Year's Eve. She said Roy and her had plans and he said any friend of hers is a friend of his so all three of them left together.
