When Nora arrives with chicken soup Van tells John that he's been relieved. "Keep your door locked" he instructs her as he leaves for work. "Stay out of evidence rooms!" she retorts, and they both grin. Van tells Nora about John being locked in the evidence room with (of course!) Natalie. Nora mentions that Daniel pulls disappearing acts too, and doubts John's claim that nothing happened between him and Natalie. Van explains that John feels responsible for Nat and that if there anything more to it, he'd tell her. The two women talk about marriage; Van speculates that she might reevaluate her long-time opposition to getting married, but that she and John have issues to work out first.

While she expressed her gratitude to him, he doesn't reveal what he knows about Cristian's identity. John goes back to Van's apartment, just in time to hear a little of the "marriage" conversation.

Kelly brings Nora to the Palace for her bridal brunch, organized by Renee. Also in attendance are Viki, Natalie, Evangeline, and one surprise guest: Rachel! Nora is thrilled to see her daughter, but things get out of hand when Lindsay stops by the table to "congratulate" Nora on her pending nuptials. Lindsay makes several snide comments about Nora's track record with men and also damns Evangeline for hanging out with Nora, who Lindsay believes is trying to ruin Jen's life. Nora accidentally spills juice on Lindsay and reveals to her that Riley and Jen have just broken up.
An enraged Lindsay makes her way to Rex's apartment, where Jen has spent the night. Although Rex managed to trick Jen into making out with him (she was half asleep, dreaming he was Riley), things went no further.

Jen reluctantly agrees to stay in town and attend Nora's wedding with Matthew.

Jessica goes to Antonio's to deliver a rocking horse as a present for Jamie to enjoy once she is returned to her father. Jessica also shows Antonio the note from her "stalker," and he in turn tells Jessica about the ten thousand dollars that he believes R.J. stole from his account.
