CHURCH

Annie is able to change Caitlin's mind about telling Cole she isn't pregnant, but not before Sean overhears that Caitlin isn't pregnant. Annie (grasping at straws) told Caitlin that she will have the baby tomorrow. Cole demands to see Caitlin, but Sean tries to stop him, saying it's bad to see the bride before the wedding. They then see the Father who told Sean and Cole that if he needs to talk to Caitlin, he should. Cole throws out Annie while he and Caitlin talk. Cole gives Caitlin a Deschanel Jewels bracelet that Elaine and Paula sent since they couldn't be there. Cole prepares to tell Caitlin the truth...

Olivia confesses to the Father that she had an affair with her soon to be son- in-law. Gregory gives Olivia a nice bouquet. Father Antonio told Olivia that it is clear she loves Gregory, and he loves her, so she should follow her heart. They both go to look for Caitlin and Cole.

Ben confesses to Tim that he murdered Mark and the others on the island. When Meg shows up, she says she knows exactly what they were talking about, Tim's accusations again. Ben told Meg he has to run an errand and will return.

Tim told Ricardo that Ben confessed. Ricardo told him that there were no other witnesses and that it seems he's just a jealous ex-boyfriend. Ricardo then told Tim that the case is closed, but if Tim comes up with hard evidence, he can reopen it again.

Gabi runs into Ricardo, she asks him if the argument that Ricardo and Eddie had was about her. She told him he doesn't need to defend her, after all, she hurt him a lot. He responds that he doesn't do anything he doesn't want to do.

Many of the Surf Central Crew light candles for Mark. BEN'S

The Mission
Tim confronts Ben, who confesses to the murders. He says that he would have killed all of the Surf Centralites, if Tim hadn't shown up and ruined his plans. He told Tim that Mark shouldn't have been the one to die, it should have been Tim. Ben leaves and Tim tries to tell Meg about Ben's confession, but she won't listen. Tim told Ricardo that Ben confessed, but Ricardo can't allow himself to believe it.

In the confessional, Olivia says Cole may be her baby's father. Antonio counsels Olivia to tell Caitlin the truth, but Olivia flatly refuses.

Olivia bumps into Gregory, who gives her a bouquet that looks just like the one that she carried on their wedding day. Gregory once again asks Olivia to come back to him. When Gregory leaves, Olivia thinks that maybe he wouldn't be so desperate for her to come back to him if she told him the truth about her baby.

Caitlin told Annie that she can't marry Cole unless she tells him the truth. Annie tries to convince Caitlin not to tell Cole, to no avail. Finally, when Caitlin starts to leave the room to find Cole and tell him the truth, Annie told Caitlin that the baby's biological mother will be having a c-section the next day.

Cole asks Sean if he knows where Caitlin is because he has to talk to her immediately. Sean, knowing that Caitlin and Annie are discussing Caitlin's miscarriage, asks if Cole can talk to Caitlin later. Cole told him that if he doesn't speak to Caitlin now, there won't be a wedding. When Sean appeals to Antonio for help, Antonio says that he's sure that Cole must have a good reason for needing to talk to Caitlin. Despite Sean's objections, Cole went into the dressing room.

Antonio told Ricardo that he lights a candle for Maria every day, because it helps him find peace regarding her death. Ricardo says that he won't find peace until he's brought Maria's killer to justice. Later, Ricardo finds Tim and asks him to dig up some concrete evidence on Ben, so that Ricardo can reopen the investigation into the Terror Island killings.

Concerned about the delay, Gregory and Olivia leave to see what's holding up Caitlin and Cole.

Sean begins to suspect that Annie is behind Caitlin's charade of continued pregnancy. Just as Sean confronts Annie about Caitlin's faked pregnancy, Gregory and Olivia come around the corner.

Annie and Caitlin are surprised when Cole enters the room, but not half as surprised as Sean is when he sees that Caitlin is wearing the pregnancy pad again. Annie tries to kick Cole out, but Cole kicks her out, instead. Cole gives Caitlin a bracelet that AJ gave to Elaine and says that he has to tell her the truth and that he hopes that she can forgive him.

Ben's House
While Ben is standing in the middle of their bedroom fondling Meg's scarf, he has a very realistic dream of strangling Meg with it.

When Vanessa started to pull the curtain back, Lena (her mother) started screaming for her to leave even though Vanessa tried to tell who she was. Vanessa was devastated and had to leave the room without seeing her mother. While the other nurses were trying to control Lena, Virginia left the room unnoticed by them. However, Vanessa was in the hallway when Virginia came out. Vanessa saw the back of a disguised Virginia and asked how her mother was doing.

When the wedding had yet to start, Eddie speculated that Caitlin had changed her mind. He was thinking about the tape of Jade, but he told Bette that he just meant that Gregory was enough reason for them not to marry.

Meg and Ben were sentimental about the wedding. Meg stated that she would never leave Ben waiting that long for her on their wedding day.

(The Hallway) Annie created a diversion by knocking Olivia's bouquet into some candles, catching it on fire. This gave Caitlin the time she needed to slip her pregnancy pad back on without being noticed.

Olivia told Gregory that her bouquet was like their marriage…It had been burned around the edges, but had survived. They both separately share an emotional moment with Caitlin before the ceremony started.

(The Sanctuary) The wedding started. Gregory walked Caitlin down the aisle. Antonio started off the ceremony by giving a message on the importance of honesty in a marriage.
