Lindsay tells Asa he can buy them a nice housewarming present, but Asa tells her he'll get her a trip to Hades. Lindsay tersely wishes him a Happy New Year. Asa counters that Bo is too upset to come and enjoy himself at the party, the love of his life is getting married tonite.

Cris says he has no intention of hurting Roseanne and R.J. tells him that if Jessica takes him back, he'll dump Roseanne in a heartbeat (we can only hope).
R.J. blusters on about all of the things that Roseanne has done for Cris, taking him to New York, going to the art school (Cris doesn't know that he doesn't have a scholarship, R.J.), pay the big city rent, and Cris wants to know if Roseanne has told him all this.

Nora angrily tells Lindsay not to speak to her that way, she's not going to ruin her night. Nora tells Lindsay that she's sorry that she's having a problem with Bo and that it doesn't affect her because she's happy. Lindsay continues to deny having a problem with Bo (you can see that it's killing her that Nora is happy). As Nora turns to get away from the situation, Lindsay grabs her sleeve; it tears off. (If I were Nora, I wouldn't pay the dressmaker one cent for a dress that tears that easily). Nora looks at her dress in horror. Lindsay is also horrified.

"Last Episode of the Century":
Cristian pulled Jessica out of Asa's party at The Palace, pushed her into his car and is now spiriting her away to an unknown destination so Jessica wonders if this is "normal" behavior. Cris wants "no interruptions...just the two of us...going to a place where we can't hide from the truth." While Jessica believes there is "nothing left to say," Cristian wants to know if Jessica pushed him away after the accident when she "really didn't want to." Jessica tells him "it doesn't matter" but Cristian believes "if there wasn't that misunderstanding between us...we'd still be together." Later, he promises that if he had known about her problems, he "could have and would have helped" Jessica. "But that isn't what happened...it's too late," Jess tells him. "No it's not...it's not too late now."
Roseanne shows up looking for Jessica. Will doesn't want to believe that Jessica is with Cristian and is nervous to be seen with Roseanne. He doesn't want to help Roseanne "do something" to find them because "we've done way too much already...I practically sold my soul to keep him away from her...it's obvious that she still wants to be with him." Roseanne feels she is "meant to be with Cristian" and all she needs to do is "get him away from Jessica and back to New York." She asks Will if he will help her find them.
Skye shows up "looking for a room" and sticks around the party to the dismay of Renee, Dorian and Blair. Max tells Blair she "looks beautiful" and promises that "the next year will be full of surprises."
Asa asks Lindsay to wait at the bar for Bo but Lindsay doesn't want to "miss out on a chance to make him miserable" so she stays at the party. Later, when Dorian asks Lindsay about Bo's whereabouts, she angrily tells her, "I don't know and I don't care."
Téa isn't in the holiday spirit and tells R.J. that "it's hard to be merry when someone has tried to mow down your date with a car." Hank shares his New Year's "resolution" with R.J.: to do "everything within my power to keep my brother and his friends safe." The guilt causes R.J. to promise to Téa that just after the New Year's countdown they will go someplace special: the police station to file a report. "I am going to keep you safe."
Later, while Joey is out on the roof waiting to surprise Kelly, Sophia joins him for "a double date, cowboy." Joey explains that he has arranged fireworks for Kelly so tonight she "will have her own private stars." Sophia thinks this is "the most romantic thing I've ever heard" and agrees to "go someplace else" so Joey and Kelly can be alone. "I hope she appreciates what she's got...if not, she will have to answer to me." But, of course, when Sophia tries to open the door, the combination that Renee gave Joey to bypass the new security system doesn't work and they are stuck on the roof.
After their agreed one drink, Kevin reminds Kelly that her "boyfriend" is waiting for her at the Buchanan party. Kelly corrects Kevin that she is now Joey's "fiancée" and shows him her ring. Kevin is surprised that Joey hasn't shared the news with him but gets depressed when Kelly tells him she is sure Joey will ask him to be his best man. This starts another round: more drinks and conversation about Grace that leads to a discussion about alcohol and it's numbing effects. Kelly shares with Kevin that "it makes me feel good" to talk to him about Grace. Kevin confides in Kelly that he and Grace had planned to attend the Bolshoi Ballet in Philadelphia for New Year's Eve. "It's hard for me to understand how everything can just continue to go on and on and on when I can't...I just can't." Kelly hugs Kevin and reminds him that Grace would "want you to go on with your life." Kevin wonders if Kelly believes that Grace "watches" them; Kelly is sure of it. "The other day I was in my closet...and she said ‘don't wear that shirt, it's too bright, wear the other one-it's my favorite color.'"
Sam and Nora's House
Sam is convinced something has happened to Nora when she hasn't yet arrived home and he isn't able to reach her by cell phone. Viki assures him that Nora is "just running late" and will be home any minute. During the wait, Judge Kenyon has had way too much champagne and wants to go back to his hotel. Sam doesn't like this idea: "I've waited 20 years, you can wait 20 more minutes." After more champagne, the judge is passed out on the couch and Sam decides to take him back to The Palace Hotel to sleep it off and then go look for Nora. [At The Palace, Sam runs into Lindsay and asks where Bo is. Of course, this sets Lindsay off into her "poor me" mode and upon finding out that Nora hasn't yet returned home for her wedding, she spits at Sam: "Just because she left you again, don't blame me." But suddenly a light goes on and she changes her mind: "Oh, my god, I did do something...I had an argument with Bo and I sent him right back into Nora's arms..." Sam thinks Lindsay has "lost it" and is "being ridiculous" because, after all, Nora "was on her way home in her wedding dress... Your fight with Bo is your problem, my problem is finding my fiancée before midnight."]
Later, Ben and Viki dance without music and agree that Nora and Sam are missing a great wedding. Ben thinks that Sam will have the judge marry them "wherever Nora turns up" so it is likely that he and Viki will be alone in the house for quite a while. When Viki tells him that "then it will be the best wedding I've ever been to..." Ben wants her to "reserve judgment" because of a document which was delivered to him earlier in the day: his official divorce decree from Skye. Viki is thrilled but, meanwhile at The Palace, Dorian hands Skye a similar envelope that had been delivered to Dorian's and Skye isn't so thrilled. Skye vows, "This isn't over yet, Ben Davidson."
Locked in the warehouse, Nora is raging at the gods. "Do you think this is funny?" She finds a flashlight and tries to use Morse code to signal for help but can't remember what the signals should be. Soon, Bo comes to the door and tries to pry the lock open to free Nora but doesn't have any immediate luck. Nora pleads with him to try again instead of calling for backup. While she pulls and he pushes, the lock breaks and the door finally gives way and Bo lands on the floor with Nora. Nora calls Bo "my hero" and asks him to "get her to the church on time." While they are picking themselves up, a security door comes down and locks them both in the warehouse. Nora is frantic and raging again: "Life isn't fair..." Of course, Bo left his cell phone in his car and can't call "Sam, the National Guard or somebody, anybody..." but with the help of the Swiss Army knife he had earlier gifted to Nora, he thinks he can rewire the circuit box and bypass the timer to let them out of the locked warehouse. Bo is amused at recalling how Nora used to "make fun of my how-to books" but when she promises, "Honey, if you can get that door open, I will buy you a whole series of how-to books," he is quick to make a "deal." He also tells Nora, "Sam's a lucky guy...you look beautiful, Red."
At The Palace, Asa rings a bell while Max blows a horn to get everyone's attention. Asa makes this announcement: "The bells of St. James will ring the final 10 seconds to midnight so if you're not with the one you love, love the filly you're with...Get ready."
As the bells begin to ring, we see:
Blair and Max kissing passionately.
Sam leaving to look for Nora - with Lindsay following along as usual.
