Annie is rushing like a house-a-fire to get the wedding ceremony concluded by the strike of l2:00. Each time the priest begins another part of the ceremony Annie breaks in "blah blah blah, yada yada yada, man and wife, I take, he takes,"--' whatever area of the ceremony they are in she is rushing to get it done and over with by l2:00 (Later Gregory asks if they were in a marathon or she was trying to get in the Guinness Book of Records?). As the priest gets to the 'you may kiss the bride' part, Annie practically has Gregory on the floor with her kisses before the good priest gets the words out of his mouth. (Annie has another of her fantasies where she is climbing up a snow covered mountain -the top of the world - in her usual well chosen snow-suited attire and places a flag atop 'the world' --"I did it she says to herself, "I did it." Wedding done the clerk comes to Annie (while Gregory is taking care of the financial aspects of this 'ceremony,`)with the marriage certificate for her signature. Annie is aghast to see the time stated is l2:0l....no no no , this will not due. She begins an 'artful' conversation with the clerk informing her the document has the incorrect time of the marriage. She argues on and on with this clerk who is adamant about the time being correct. Annie pulls out the big guns. She blabbers on how her dear departed father would have loved to see her marry on his birthday, however, the certificate as is, is one minute past that date showing ceremony and wedding date the following day and oh my,oh my, she just couldn't live with herself if this happened, whatever would poor daddy think... She wears down the clerk sufficiently and once again Annie has gotten her way. Gregory and Annie share a toast together and Gregory told her she will get everything she deserves --this said after he has presented her with a very large and beautiful diamond ring -- but somehow we get the feeling that isn't what he's talking about.--------- Later, in bed, after what seems like an energetic round of lovemaking, Annie tells herself (out loud) how happy she is...that she knew she NEEDED Gregory but never knew she would WANT him. Wishing Gregory were awake to hear how happy she was she snuggles close up to him--but--unknown to Annie, Gregory seems not to be sleeping at all and appears to have a great big grin on his handsome face as he listens to her prattling.
Michael continues to bang on Tyus' door calling out for him, screaming to the door (and he assumes Tyus on the other side) that he knows Tyus knows more than he is saying about Vanessa and her whereabouts and he DEMANDS he open the door or he will break it down. Soon a man walks up and asks Michael to leave or he'll call the cops. Michael begins to argue but when he sees this man (the manager of the bldg.) is ready and willing to call for help Michael relents and agrees to go. He yells to Tyus's door that he will be back, and he wants answers. -------Virginia having heard Michael's incessant rantings was terrified he would break down the door and ruin her plans, not to mention catch her there with no possible reasonable explanation. Having heard Michael leave she continues with her original plan. She finishes taking a picture of a half-naked Tyus and Vanessa, clothes disheveled, lying in his arms. She leans toward Vanessa to spit out one of her nasty little utterings when Vanessa grabs her by the hair, yelling WAIT! Virginia is startled and doesn't move. "Mom,'' Vanessa purrs in a voice half-asleep; "You look beautiful mom, you must have taken the medicine too, now we're both cured," Virginia plays along. Vanessa continues: "Mom, hold me like you did when I was a little girl," and with that Virginia takes Vanessa in her arms cooing and soothing her until she falls gently back to sleep. Virginia puts Vanessa back in Tyus's arms and breathes a very large sigh of relief. -----After Virginia leaves, Tyus and Vanessa slowly awaken; each groggy and not quite sure what has happened. "I thought you were Michael," Vanessa shakily reveals. Tyus explains he expected side affects but ???? did they or didn't they--?? The two decide nothing had happened. They HAVE TO BELIEVE that nothing happened.
COLE and CAITLIN'S room
Cole entering the bedroom sees Caitlin disturbed by something she sees on the news. It turns out to be a story about Ben and his escape from prison. Caitlin is furious when Cole admits his part in helping Ben escape but she calms down and totally understands when Cole reminded her of his own time in jail when everyone thought she was dead (after the car accident) and he was helped to escape jail in order to look for her. As they talk Cole confronts Caitlin about her odd friendship with Annie. He is having a difficult time understanding any attraction for a friendship with 'that troublemaker.' Caitlin talks 'aound it' and the conversation went to Trey's baptism and Caitlin's desire to have Cole's father there. Cole contends it is bad enough to have Olivia as a godmother; there is no way his father is welcome at the baptism...NO WAY. Seems these two have some talking to do.
HOSPITAL, TIM'S ROOM
Joan, Sarah and Tim are waiting for word on Meg and Ben. A scream is heard in the other room and it turns out to be the young woman who walked into Tim's room sometime before. We see her being comforted by a nurse. 'It must have been a nightmare,' she says and the nurse agrees. She is a lovely young woman but her name is not mentioned nor anything else about her. The nurse leaves her and before long we see her once again peering into Tim's room listening as Tim and the others are hearing news about Ben and Meg.
THE CLIFF (NEAR THE CABIN)
Ben and Derek are over the cliff. Meg is screaming Ben's name. She is terrified that Ben may be gone. Wait, wait a minute...we see a hand...Meg runs over and grabs it, helping him up. He's up. It's Ben ...are we sure?? Meg and Ben embrace "I thought I'd lost you," Meg crys in his arms, and then a scream, a plea for help. It's Derek, he's falling and he's reaching out. .... ...(Casey and Ricardo hear Meg scream....they have found the cabin and have been checking out the area....they rush to her.) Ben went to help Derek as Meg tries to stop him, "He's still my brother Meg," Ben told her as he gets in position to grab Derek's hand. It seems Derek is trying to pull Ben down but seconds later it's over, Derek has lost and is gone, his hand slipping away from Ben's as he disappears into the darkness below. Casey and Ricardo check to see if they can detect anything but are unsuccessful and suggest they go back and radio for help. Ben and Meg slump to the ground, embracing, numb with what has just happened. There on the ground they huddle as the camera pans away and we, just for a moment, take in the joy of their reunion-------------Casey and Ricardo, back at the cabin, are aghast at what has happened there. "It looks like World War III," Casey tells Ricardo. They believe Meg is better off not seeing this (I don't know why, she LIVED it), however, Meg and Ben approach and prepare to gather their things and leave. Meg seems to be in a state of shock, and not the emotional Meg we've come to know. Ben is punishing himself for the way he hated Maria; now it seems for no valid reason if she indeed did not have an affair with Derek. Meg reminds Ben this is in the past to which Ben reminds her that Maria is also dead.
Meg is sympathetic and told Ben that Derek was trying to make him feel guilty. "You won, she reminds him, "You won and he can't hurt you anymore." Ben and Ricardo go into the other room leaving Meg with Casey. She once again thanks Casey for trying to save her. He lets Meg know he will ALWAYS be there for her and by the look on his face we know he means it. All of a sudden Hank flies through the door, Meg rushes into his arms and they cry, she to see her father and he for the sheer joy of having his daughter safe and sound.------Ricardo takes Ben aside and apologizes for not trusting him. He is sorry for not believing his 'twin' story and he told Ben if he had let his instincts lead him this time around it would have been disastrous. Ben is understanding with Ricardo, he reminds him he thought the worst of someone too, Maria, and he was wrong. ( We see Tim and Joan and Sarah hearing the good news, they are happy and so relieved.) Everyone is ready to go. Ben and Meg the last "I'm not going to let you out of my sight," Ben announces to Meg. "And nothing is gong to come between us again." Meg has a funny look on her face. Could she be thinking how she will tell Ben she and DEREK made love. Little does she know he knows!
At The Beach
Sean runs into Emily on the beach and asks her why she ran out on him last night without even saying a word. Emily apologizes and told Sean she was going to call him, but she had a meeting last night. Sean excuses her and then she asks Sean why he seemed so busy with the lady he was talking to. Sean explains to him that the lady was Bette a good friend of the families and she had just informed him that his parents went through with the divorce. Emily feels for him and admits that her parents are also divorced. Sean told her about all of the things that led up to the divorce and adds that he isn't that surprised, his father is a real jerk. They then talk about more pleasant things and Sean invites Emily to the party celebrating his nephew's christening. She gladly accepts and Sean leaves. Once he is gone, Emily notices he dropped his wallet and calls after him, but it is too late.
On The Limousine Ride Home
Gregory and his new bride head home to attend Trey's christening. Annie asks Gregory what is the last thing he expected to be doing this morning and Gregory told her the last thing he expected to be doing is riding in the back of a limousine with her. Annie says you're riding back in the limousine with your wife. Gregory says this wife, Annie says your only wife and Gregory told her the only wife I want as they kiss each other. Annie told Gregory that one or two people at the baptism just might not be happy for them. Gregory told her that one of two people at the baptism just may be very happy for them. Annie says well I can think of Olivia for one and Greggy pooh told her that Caitlin use to have some romantic notion that Olivia and he might get back together, but she'll just have to get over it. Annie has a flashback of Caitlin telling her (If and when her dad does decide to remarry, it'll be to a woman with substance and class like her mom.) Gregory brought Annie out of her trance by asking her where did she go. Annie told him she was just wondering why he would think Caitlin would approve of their marriage. Gregory says that Caitlin asked Annie to be Trey's GodMother and if she asked her to do that, then it's a good indication that she'll approve of the marriage. He then adds that he hopes Caitlin does approve, because her approval is very important to him. Annie says what if Caitlin doesn't want me to be Trey's GodMother, do you still want me to be your wife. Greggy pooh told her that they both know how Caitlin feels about her, so why worry about it when they have so little time. He then leans over and they start kissing each other passionately.
At The Richards
Cole comes into the study carrying Trey and asks Caitlin doesn't he look lovely. Caitlin told him that they both do and then adds that she has been trying to call her mom all morning to let her know they have decided to let her be Trey's GodMother, but she can't seem to find her. She then urges Cole to invite his father to the baptism but he stubbornly refuses to give in. Before Caitlin can badger him some more, Bette arrives to get a gander at Trey before the baptism begins. She then told Caitlin that she remembers when Sean and her got baptized in the same christening gown. She also mentions that Olivia was going to use the christening gown to baptize her own baby. She then changes the subject and asks where Grandpa Greggy is. Caitlin says that’s a good question because Olivia is missing to and then speculates about them probably getting back together. Bette told her that she doubts that, but before any of them can further speculate about where Olivia and Gregory may be, Gregory walks in carrying Annie over the threshold. As they all gather in front of the doorway, Annie flashes her big diamond ring in front of a shocked and astonished Bette, Cole, and Caitlin and told them that they got married last night. Caitlin says you can’t be serious and Gregory told her that he wanted her to be the first to know. Annie jumps in and told Caitlin that she had a yearning to be a June Bride. Ignoring Annie, Caitlin told her father that she can’t believe he divorced her mom and then turned around and married Annie. Gregory says nothing, but Annie told her that she knows this was kind of sudden, but she is Mrs. Gregory Richards. Gregory asks to speak to Caitlin alone and they go into the study. After they are gone, Annie asks her Aunt Bette when is she going to get over it as Cole stands there silently still digesting everything. Bette told Annie she is not going to get over it and can’t believe that she just married Gregory. Annie told her they were both feeling impulsive. Bette told her they were both feeling no pain is more like it. She then chastises Annie for not listening to her about leaving Gregory alone and stopping whatever it is she was doing to snare him, but no, Annie wouldn’t listen and now she has set herself up for her life to be ruined. Cole still stands there tripping on all of this and Annie told Bette that she always thinks she has all the answers, but she doesn’t and she is happier than she has every been in her entire life and Bette can’t take that away from them. Bette laughs at her and told her that Gregory’s divorce is only one day old and she managed to seduce him into marrying her in record time. Annie asks her if she thinks that is the only reason why Gregory married her and Bette says that she hopes Annie doesn’t think that Gregory married her because he loves her. She then told Annie that there is only one person on this earth who he is ever going to love and that is Olivia. She then remembers that Olivia doesn’t know yet and Annie told her that she cares more about Olivia’s feelings than her feelings. Bette says NOT, you don’t have any feelings anymore and then told Cole that she better go tell Olivia about this before she gets the same kind of rude awakening that they just had and hurries on out the door.
Meanwhile in the study, Gregory told Caitlin that he is sorry that she had to find out this way. Caitlin says carrying your bride over the threshold of the morning of my sons baptism, did you think we’d be sleeping in. Gregory says that he knows this must be a shock to her, but he thought she’d be happy for him. Caitlin says well you thought wrong and Gregory told her to try to understand. Caitlin says she understands why Annie would want to marry him, because she has been after him for months; what she doesn’t understand is why he would marry her.
Up At The Cabin Lodge
As she and AJ arrive at the cabin, Olivia contemplates entering in the place. AJ told her that they have come to far for her to turn back now and urges her to enter the Lodge. Olivia agrees to do so and upon entering starts already having flashbacks about being there. Olivia begins to recollect her first visit there and fears that she might have been responsible for her baby's death after all. AJ refuses to believe that and told her he doesn't give a damn what Gregory thinks, he believes she can remember what happened and urges her to continue on. With words of encouragement like that, Olivia agrees to keep on trying to remember and has miraculous breakthroughs. Olivia remembers giving birth in the cabin and holding her crying infant son in her arms. Realizing that Dr. Brock has been lying all along, Olivia struggles to recall who took the baby away from her. AJ urges for Olivia to try to remember anything more about being there, because he feels she is so close. Unable to recall anything more, Olivia has A.J. take her back to Sunset Beach.
At Sunset Beach Police Station
After spending a night in jail, Antonio and Gabi contemplate how they've jeopardized their futures but agree that the risk was worth it. As they discuss what possible ramifications could happen to them, Ricardo shows up and told the two jailbirds that Ben and Meg are safe thanks to them. Antonio and Gabi asks him when are they getting out of here and Ricardo told them he is working on it. Just then, District Attorney Hallie shows up to inform them that she intends to prosecute. Ricardo reminds the district attorney that media coverage of such a fiasco could ruin her career. With some timely help from Bette, who threatens to inflame public opinion against the prosecution if they decide to pursue this, Ricardo convinces Hallie to release his brother and Gabi and to also put in a good word to get Gabi back her job at the station. The D.A. told him he has got to be kidding, but Ricardo told her he is very serious. Having forced her hand, the D.A. agrees and leaves in a huff and Ricardo, Antonio and Gabi celebrate their freedom.
Back At The Richards
After the exiting of Bette, Annie turns around to find Cole ready to throw his 25 cents of what he thinks about her, at her. Cole told Annie that there is nothing she wouldn’t do to get what she wants is there. Annie told Cole that she made his father-in-law a very happy man last night. Cole laughs and says it’s obvious a man can get what he wants for the right price. Annie asks him what is that suppose to mean and Cole told her that she weaseled her way into this house, in spite of the fact that Caitlin can barely stand her. She then talked her way into Gregory’s bed, down the isle in a heart beat after Gregory and Olivia’s divorce was final. Annie told him that their divorce was just a formality and their marriage was history along time ago. At least as long ago as when he had an affair with his wife’s mother. Cole told her she doesn’t know what she is talking about and Annie told him yes she does and so does he. Cole gets up on her and threatens her by telling her that Trey’s baptism is today and he is not going to let her completely ruin this day for Caitlin with her malicious garbage about him and Olivia. Annie says she is not the one who.....Cole cuts her off and told her to shut-up and back off his family. Annie told Cole that they are all family now whether he likes it or not. Cole told her no they are not and don’t make him prove that to her today and then walks out.
In The Study, Gregory told Caitlin that he knows she is hurting. Caitlin cuts him off and told him no she is not, she just wonders what he is trying to prove. Gregory says prove, and then told her that Olivia and him were not getting back together again. Caitlin told her dad that he loves her mom, but Gregory told her that it is over and now his life with Annie is just beginning. Caitlin told her dad that she can’t believe this and Gregory told her that he thought she liked Annie, after all she did asks Annie to be Trey’s GodMother. He then told her it is because of her that he has started to look at Annie in a different light. As if on cue, Annie appears and asks Caitlin if she is still going to be Trey’s GodMother, but before Caitlin can answer her, the housekeeper comes in and told Gregory he has an important call. Gregory leaves to take his call, leaving Caitlin and Annie alone. Cole also comes into the study and asks Caitlin how did things go with her father. Caitlin told him that her dad wants her to understand and Annie chimes in that they both do. Caitlin shoots daggers at Annie and Annie asks Cole if he’ll let her speak privately with her stepdaughter for a few moments. Cole leaves and Annie asks Caitlin if they are still friends. Caitlin told her they were never friends, she only used her to get closer to Gregory and now Annie knows she won’t tell her because...Annie cuts her off and says because if it weren’t for me you wouldn’t be having a son to baptize today. Caitlin then asks Annie if she has it all and did she get everything that she wants. Annie told her no not yet, she still has one thing and Caitlin is going to give it to her. As they argue over Annie still being Trey’s GodMother, Olivia and AJ arrive back from the lodge. AJ told Olivia to go on in and he’ll wait to drive her to the church in the car. Olivia told him that she wishes Cole would reconsider letting him attend the baptism, but AJ told her it’s okay, he’ll now have plenty of time to let Cole warm up to him. Olivia went inside and finds Caitlin and Annie arguing and asks Caitlin what has Annie done now. Caitlin told her mom that she won't believe it and Olivia told Caitlin that she doesn’t think Annie has anymore surprises left. Annie says don’t bank on it and Olivia told her to get out of this house because she has no place here. Gregory returns and told Olivia she doesn’t have any place here. Olivia told him her children and Grandson is here. Gregory told her fine, visit your children and Grandson, but don’t you ever speak to my wife that way again. Olivia says what, and Gregory told her that Annie and he got married last night. As Annie flashes her big diamond ring in front of Olivia’s face, Olivia looks at Annie’s hands and has a flashback and remembers seeing a womans hands and that it was a woman who was with her at the cabin, much to Annie’s horror.........
