Charity and Miguel can't believe the bad luck omens that keep following them. When they returned home from the wedding reception they walk into the Bennett house and step on a mirror. Charity sees it as 7 years bad luck. When they go up to Charity's room a black cat crosses their path. As they step into Charity's bedroom they walk under a ladder that was place in the doorway.

David accompanies Grace home. Grace questions Charity about the omens and then turns on Kay. She asks Kay if she is behind them. Kay says that she is but she is not guilty. Kay says that the black cat came through an open window. A window that Grace left open. She then explains that the cat knocked over a mirror and then ran into Charity's room. Kay got the ladder to get the cat down before she could ruin Charity's wedding dress. Charity buys the story but Grace does not. Grace corners Kay and warns her not to try anything at the wedding tomorrow. Kay tells her mother she will do what she pleases and there is not a damn thing she can do about it. Kay then sees David go into her mother's bedroom.

The sounds of a terrified Theresa screaming rattles everyone in the Crane mansion. Gwen begs Ethan not to leave her to find out what Theresa is screaming about. Gwen is sure that it is just another plan to keep the newlyweds apart.
Ivy and Sam hear the screaming as does Julian and Rebecca. Ethan is the first on the scene and attacks Theresa's intruder. They begin to beat each other up. Sam tries to break in on the fight. The door is locked and as he keeps hearing Theresa scream, he has no choice but to break the door down. Sam breaks up the fight. The intruder is identified as Foxworth Crane. He smiles smugly and says, "I'm Back." He introduces himself to Theresa as the now oldest son of Ivy and Julian since Ethan is no longer a Crane. No one in the family seem particularly happy to see Fox. Julian and Ivy both feel that there is big trouble on the way.

Eve comes home to find Liz working on her plan to get TC. Liz entices TC into a sexy dance with her. Eve asks rather angrily what is going on. TC explains how innocent the dance was. It was innocent to TC but Eve knows what Liz is up to. Liz again tells Eve she is going to ruin her life.

Tabitha tries out the size of her casket. She is sure that after Miguel and Charity's wedding tomorrow she will be dead. Cracked Connie and Cecil have other ideas. They begin to loot Tabitha's house of all her antiques. They plan on getting as much as they can get their money grubbing hands on and hitting the open road.

Sam arrives home and grabs champagne to mend fences with Grace. Kay acts upset and purposely tries to get her father not to go upstairs, knowing that he would want to all the more. He walks into Grace's bedroom to find that she fell asleep in David's arms. Kay smiles to herself that "Payback is a bitch."

Ethan takes Fox aside and warns him to stay the hell away from Theresa. Fox questions Ethan why he should care if he spends time with Theresa, who he affectionately calls "stepmommie." Fox reminds his half-brother that he is now a married man.
Gwen gets catty with Theresa and asks if her nerves have calmed down enough for her and Ethan to continue their honeymoon. Theresa puts Gwen in her place by reminding her that Ethan left Gwen's honeymoon bed to come to her rescue. She tells Gwen that it certainly shows who is locked in Ethan's heart. Gwen just scowls at Theresa.

Theresa jumps in and tells Miguel that he should marry his true love, not marry out of obligation. Pilar gets angry and asks Theresa how she could use her past situation with Ethan to cloud Miguel's choice.

Beth and her mother get into a heated argument as Beth begins to pack for her honeymoon. Beth tells her mother that she hired a private nurse to look after her while she is gone. Mrs. Wallace tells Beth that she cancelled the nurse because Beth will not be going on a honeymoon and not marrying Luis.
Mrs. Wallace screams this for the last time in Beth's face. Beth says to herself that there is no need for a nurse because she is going to kill her mother.

Hank arrives at the Lopez-Fitzgerald home and warns Miguel to stay away from Sam. Hank says that his brother will kill him if he lays eyes on him. Pilar begs Miguel to reconsider his decision not to marry Kay.

At the Bennett home Sam goes off on how Miguel seduced Kay. Grace defends Miguel and says that Kay probably manipulated the whole thing. She says she feels that Kay is helping evil in Harmony and in their lives. Sam can't believe that Grace could think so lowly of their daughter. David comes in and agrees with Grace as does John. Sam tells the two they have no place to voice their opinions since they are not family. Grace jumps in and says that they are family and Kay is David's stepdaughter. Sam says the hell she is. Sam blames David and John for taking Grace away from Kay. Sam says that the three of them helped cause all of this.
