Inside his cell, Tony cannot believe Romeo left on bail only to return to
confess everything. Romeo plans on telling the police exactly what happened
the night Catalina was murdered "and everything that happened afterward,"
eying Marah he emphasizes, "everything." Tony is confused and asks Marah
what is going on. She knows, but is hesitant as Carmen enters. Tony
accuses her of putting Romeo up to this. Carmen only wants Tony out of
prison. She thanks Marah for "standing by Tony" through this difficult
time. D.A. Wolf enters and greets Carmen, curious that her family is in
more trouble with the law. Romeo is antsy to give his statement, "I have
nothing to hide... How many of us can say that?" His stare burns through
Marah's guilty face. Miss Wolf offers a lawyer, but Romeo insists he's
only going to say this once. He was the one who killed Catalina. She was
"poison" to the Santos family and was blackmailing them by threatening to go
to the Feds if she couldn't get what she wanted - namely, Tony. Romeo
insists it was all his idea and Tony had nothing to do with it. He only let
Tony take the wrap initially because he got scared, but he realizes now that
the Santos family has been good to him and Tony was his best friend - he
couldn't let him take the fall. Besides, Marah was onto him. She saw
Catalina's medal around his neck and started getting suspicious - the truth
would have come out eventually. Wolf asks why Romeo gave the medal to
Marah. Romeo says it was his way of "saying thank you." It was purely out
of friendship. "Marah loves Tony..." End of story. Wolf orders Romeo be
booked for murder and grants Tony his freedom. An officer unlocks his cell,
and Tony falls out into Marah's arms. He thanks Carmen, who insists she
"didn't do a thing." Carmen asks Wolf for a moment alone with Romeo. She
reminds him that the Santos family will stand by him through his trial, but
has he forgotten their deal? Why did he let Marah off the hook like that?
Romeo insists he is not stupid - he will play the Marah card when the time
is right. He wants to stay alive and doesn't mind doing "10-20" if he has
to. "Marah is my insurance policy," Romeo says as an officer handcuffs him
and drags him away. Tony kisses Marah and promises nothing will ever come
between them again.
At the wedding, tears run down Michelle's face as she hugs her estranged father. Ed goes to his son and the newly-reunited family embrace. Rick is surprised - he had no idea Michelle and Danny were trying to find Ed, but he thanks them for the best wedding present. Michelle thanks Danny for bringing her father home to them. Phillip suggests they continue the ceremony, but Ed objects - he has yet to meet the bride. He and Mel exchange introductions and Ed greets his old friends, Clayton and Felicia. Ed asks if he can give Rick away, and the ceremony continues. Mel and Rick are pronounced "man and wife." They kiss to the crowd's delight. The applause is halted when Rick's heart monitor beeps. He is ok, just excited. Phillip congratulates the new couple, followed by Harley who is genuinely happy that the father of her child has finally found the "right person." Eying Rick in his wheelchair, Clayton tells Ed that Mel is very brave. Phillip and Harley attach a "Just Married" sign to the back of Rick's chair as she comments on how well they can still work together. Phillip sours the compliment by adding his distrust of a criminal living with his son. Harley reminds her ex that Zach's new soon-to-be step-mom recently had a split-personality disorder. Phillip doesn't see the relevance and walks away, leaving Harley flustered. Rick begs Mel for a break from his healthy diet for one piece of wedding cake. Much to his surprise, Mel says yes and removes the top of the cake. Inside the plastic shell, Rick sees red jello and frowns. Mel says it's "hospital approved" and laughs. Beth finds her mother alone and asks if she is ok. They watch Ed across the room as Lillian wonders what he's feeling. Holly approaches Ed over punch. He comments that it is "non-alcoholic" and thanks her for doing all she could to help Michelle find him. She asks where he's been, but Ed replies that it is a long story. He stares at Holly, "You look... perfect." Holly leaves him and returns to Buzz who commends her on the way she handled things.
Michelle tells Danny that Ed looks different, and she feels suddenly shy - he's been gone so long and she has so many questions. Danny says he found Ed in a bad situation, but suggests Ed be the one to tell her about it. Michelle is concerned and afraid for her father, but grateful that he's home now. She thanks Danny again and approaches Ed. She begins to speak but holds her face and cries. Ed hugs her and says it will be ok. Rick thanks Danny for bringing his father to his wedding and calls for a speech. Even though he needs a new heart, today it is filled with love and joy. He thanks his friends for sharing this day with him and Mel. Ed approaches and asks how Rick is feeling. He will be in town "long enough" to spend some quality time with his son. Ed falters a bit, leaning on Phillip's shoulder. Rick asks if Ed is the one who needs rest. Ed insists he is fine. Phillip wheels Rick off, but returns, laughing, for the bride who sits on Rick's lap and is whisked away to the hospital room upstairs after throwing her bouquet.

Ed slowly enters the Bauer house and looks around. He smiles at photos of his family, and runs water from the tap, fascinated. Michelle asks if it's like he remembered it. "Exactly," he responds, "and not at all." Where he's been, they had to boil the water - he thinks out loud about the things we take for granted when so many have so little. Michelle asks where he's been the last four years - he missed her trial and Robbie's birth. Why didn't he write or call? Danny suggests Ed is tired, but Ed knows his daughter's persistence. He explains that after Eve died, he left Springfield in hopes of finding his sobriety and his sanity. He ended up in a place where insanity was the norm. He thought he could help, even in a minor way. But, the poverty and sickness are worse than anyone can imagine. At home, we're so used to overabundance and splendor as the norm, but the nightmare still exists, "just a plane ride away." Danny suggests Ed is tired from their flight, so Ed offers to call a motel. Michelle insists he stay with them - it's still his house too. Michelle smiles and says there is someone she wants him to meet. She returns with Robbie and Ed is thrilled to hold his oldest grandchild for the first time. Beth and Phillip clean up after the festivities and discuss Rick's new-found happiness. Phillip has never seen his friend more "alive." He realizes the irony - though Rick is sick, but had such a glow about him today. Beth knows Phillip is thinking about marriage, but she explains that she wants "pure love;" a love and trust that supersedes wedding ceremonies and scripts that bond two people together. She has been through a lot in the past year and has learned to look deeper. She wants to be so in love and have a connection so strong that two people don't need to be married in order to stay together. Phillip is loving rediscovering Beth all over again. Their kiss is interrupted by Phillip's cell phone. Olivia reports that she has some info on Gus Aitoro, much to Phillip's chagrin. He hangs up and leaves with a smiling Beth.
