Traci confronts Colleen in school about the pipe she found but Colleen convinces her that a former friend dropped it and she was just hiding it. Traci seemingly falls for her story and sends her back to class. Phyllis seeks advice from Michael about in vitro fertilization and vows to be pregnant by Christmas. Tricia stops at Fenmore's bridal department and learns from a clerk about the details of Victoria's wedding. As Nikki meets with Victor, John Silva reveals that his fingerprints have finally "cleared" and a bail hearing is set for this afternoon. John promises that he'll be at his daughter's wedding. Victor then updates Nikki on Tricia reportedly leaving town. D.A. Chen rushes in with the lab report showing Victor's blood and semen are on Tricia's dress. Sharon and Nick say goodbye to their daughter and Sharon thanks Nick for keeping this private. She agrees to act as Victoria's matron of honor and leaves Nick behind to go to Victoria. Ryan explains to Victoria that Phillip won't be at the wedding because he's ill and in the hospital. He then agrees to meet her at the church as Sharon arrives. Lauren arranges for another dress to be shipped to the church since Sharon's no longer pregnant. Agreeing to be the best man, Neil offers to pick up the rings for an anxious Ryan. Nick then takes a moment to welcome Ryan back to the family.
In New York, Traci remembers finding Colleen's marijuana pipe. Traci thinks to herself saying "How long has this been going on, Colleen? It seems like I don't know you anymore." John Abbott calls Traci and invites her, Colleen and Steve on a cruise. Traci tells her father "its not a good time right now and I have a ton of things to take care of before I can remotely think of going on a trip right now" Traci goes to New York and visits Colleen at her school. Traci asks Colleen "what's this?" as she shows Colleen the marijuana pipe she found in Colleen's room. Traci is outraged Colleen is smoking drugs. Colleen tells Traci a lie that it was one of her friend's. Traci is buying Colleen's story for now but it won't last long. Colleen is now scared she is going to lose her friends because of her mother finding out. Traci believes in Colleen and tells her "You're smarter than this to be smoking marijuana. Aren't you concerned about your health? Your brain is still developing!"
Tricia is thinking about the next phase of her plan "to get rid of Miss Victoria." Tricia comments, "Ryan once loved me before and I'm sure he can love me again." Ryan tells Victoria, "This will end chapter one in our lives." Victoria replies, "And the beginning of our brand new life as husband and wife." Phillip has mono and can't attend Ryan's wedding, but Victoria suggests that she and Ryan go visit Phillip after their wedding day. Victoria asks Sharon how she is doing. Victoria tells Sharon, "My brother loves you so much and will do anything to help you get past this." Sharon gets ready to try on her dress but remembers that the dress was bought with the assumption that Sharon would still be pregnant.
Nikki hopes Victor's test will clear him for the time being. "Thank god for modern medicine," Nikki replies. Nikki leaves to get ready for Victoria's wedding and tell Victor, "I have to get going so I will see you at the church with you in your daughter's arm." Ryan goes to Newman Enterprises to ask Neil to be his best man. Neil is honored and accepts. Ryan suddenly remembers that he forgot the wedding rings. "I was supposed to pick them up on my way to the airport to get Phillip," he gasps. Neil says that he'll help Ryan out. Nick is happy to be getting "a new brother-in-law."
At the police station, two tests were run: One with Victor's blood and the DNA sample from Victor's semen. The two are a "perfect match" which means Victor can't attend his daughter's wedding. Tricia poses as an assistant to the Society Column's journalist and asks for details about the Newman wedding and who handles all the affairs.
Nikki visits Victor at the local jail. John Silva tells Victor his bail hearing is this afternoon and his fingerprints cleared. John hopes Victor's trial will go smoothly.
Jack has finally accepted the fact that he can't have kids with Phyllis. Billy gives Jack some advice. "You have a beautiful fiancée that loves and adores you. You have a good job, tons of money and you live in a wonderful house. Life can't get better than this," he states. Phyllis goes to see Michael Baldwin and tells him the good news. "I've looked into my heart and I finally have the answer: I want to give my husband a baby," she exclaims. Phyllis wants to go ahead with the invitro-fertilization. She says that she will not tell anyone about the procedure until she knows that it's successful. Jack tells Billy he will go house-hunting to find a place for him and Phyllis before they get married. Phyllis asks Michael, "How can I get Jack to drop the subject about the wedding of the century without letting the cat out of the bag about my procedure?" Michael agrees that it won't be easy.
It was all coming back to him now -- Victor remembered parts of what had happened the night that Tricia accused him of raping her. He remembered the tea after Nicholas left and her entering his room in a negligee, telling him that it wouldn't be so bad. He told this to John Silva and Paul Williams, who immediately started brainstorming about ways to gather some evidence. Paul received word that Tricia had filled a prescription for sedatives that day, but Victor knew that there had to be another drug. He realized that the blood sample used for the DNA test could hold some answers. John started working on it immediately.
Tricia returned to the motel to find Matt Clark waiting for her. She related her successful visit to Fenmore's and admitted that she was very scared when she visited the wrong side of town to "get the goods." Matt said that he would even be scared in that neighborhood, and he was dead! She fretted about her makeup and how she didn't have a chance to have her hair done for Ryan. He told her that it didn't matter and they agreed -- once Victoria was out of the way, she would be able to make it clear to Ryan that they were meant for each other.
Alex paid Malcolm a visit at his studio. She had been shopping for their apartment and they ended up on his couch covered by nothing more than towels! She was in a wonderfully romantic mood and they shared some beautiful moments together. She had to rush off though, to get back to work. Before she left, she wondered what was on his mind -- he was still perplexed about this other woman that Olivia was sure had taken Neil away from her. . .
At the coffee house, J.T. and his new girlfriend cuddled on the patio. Brittany stopped by to rib him about exams and whether he was through pining over Rianna. He brushed her off and sent her away when his date returned to the table.
Raul was making enemies as usual with Mac, Rianna, and Billy at school. The girls mentioned doing something together, but Rianna could tell that he had no intention of spending time with them, so she told him not to do them any favors. Billy found him cramming for a test and was truly concerned. Raul repaid that concern with insolence. Brittany stopped by and they told Billy about the concert. He was blown away.
Jack wanted to tell Phyllis about his new apartment idea when the doorbell rang. It was Maxine, the wedding planner. She was enraged by something that Phyllis had done with the flowers and threatened to terminate their agreement if she didn't give in to her. Jack couldn't choose Maxine over his fiancée, so she stalked out, basically firing herself! Jack and Phyllis talked about it a little, then Phyllis excused herself to get something out of her car. She found Maxine outside and paid her the full price of her services. She thanked her for cooperating and assured her that she would tell Jack about it soon. The idea was that they would elope sooner than later. Maxine had been surprised at the request, but was glad to help out.
While Phyllis was outside, Jack made a phone call. She reentered and told him that they could always switch to Plan B -- elope next month. He told her that it wasn't necessary -- Genoa City's best wedding planner was on her way to the house as they spoke. . . .
Olivia dropped by Michael Baldwin's office with some malpractice insurance for him to review. She tried to dig up some information about Alex from him, but he refused to give her any dirt. As she was about to leave unsatisfied, Alex entered the office. Olivia followed her inside and told her that she had been asking Michael questions about the job and her reasons for taking it. Olivia was sure that Alex could give her the answers that she was demanding. . .
After J.T.'s girlfriend parted his company, Rianna set in for the kill. She snuggled up to him and asked about a conversation they had had in the Boutique. "You told me that you wouldn't kiss me again unless I asked. What if I asked you to kiss me right now????"
Tricia arrived with Matt at the church before anyone else. They commented on the beautiful decorations and she became a little bleary-eyed when she looked up at the altar. He brought her back to earth and pointed toward her destination -- The Bride's Room. She entered with suitcase in tow. . . .
Victor and Paul inform Nick that Vic can't leave since the DNA from the rape kit was a match for his. He believes that Tricia drugged him and they hope the DA will allow for a test to see if Vic's blood shows signs of the drug. John fills in the DA about Tricia having a drug the day she claims she was right. She agrees but tells Vic that drugs being present won't automatically exonerate him. They are then told that the judge had an emergency and couldn't come. John scrambles to find another one. Vic tells Nick to make sure the wedding goes on with or without him. A new judge is assigned but won't be there for an hour. The drug test comes back with proof that he was drugged. The DA is disconcerted about the news. She has security waiting for Tricia's train so that she can question her. Victor's impatient for the judge to arrive. Vic is worried about Tricia but is relieved she's out of town. The ADA's assistant returns with the news that Tricia was NOT aboard the train to LA.
Phyllis panics at the news that Jack hired another wedding coordinator (it ruins her plans for elopement). She finally blurts out that she wants to elope. She agrees to compromise with a simple wedding in a few weeks. He smells something fishy and wants to know why she is rushing the wedding. She tells him there's another reason but doesn't want to say anything in case it doesn't work out. He's hurt by her shutting him out so she spills her idea about in-vitro. He can't believe she wants to pursue it. He worries about the stress on it for her but she's ready for it. This is why she wanted to move the wedding up, so she could be pregnant by the time they are married. He says it's a bad idea.
J.T. can't believe Rianna wants to kiss him. She understands why he's hesitant since she blew him off last summer. He advises her to layoff dating all around for a while. She needs to sort out her feelings first. She decides to make her feelings clear by kissing him passionately. He agrees provided it's no strings for the moment. Britt can't believe that Rianna pursued J.T. He better keep his eyes open. Raul walks in and sees Ri and J.T. leave for their date.
Brittany and Mac talk about midterms and Britt wonders if Mac's heard about a New Years GLOW campaign. She won't be around since she'll be in Aspen for New Years. Mac wonders why she wouldn't want to be a celeb or at least spend time with Sean. Brit's bored now and hopes desperately that something interesting will happen. Mac and Raul talk about his barely brushing by his classes. She invites him to party at her place on the weekend but he passes. She's worried about and misses spending time with him. She asks for his help with his essay and offers to help with his. He tells her that's not necessary. She understands if it's rough since she wrote many drafts before hers started to work. He hasn't even started yet.
Olivia finds it interesting that Alex turned down a big job at Newman Enterprises for an associate position at BW. Alex makes her case for BW since it's young and dynamic. Liv questions her sincerity. Alex doesn't like Olivia's inference that there's something going on between Neil and Alex. Alex flat out denies that anything or ever was going on between her and Neil. Liv still isn't buying it.
Neil stops by to pick up his brother for the wedding but Mal is delayed with a shoot and hope to be there on time. Neil informs him he's been bumped up to best man. Mal mentions his talk with Liv about the recent break up. Liv thinks Neil is involved with someone else. Mal doesn't believe it. He suspects that Liv is trying to drive a wedge between them and hopes that nothing will. Neil excuses himself to go to the wedding. Malcolm insists that he, Neil and Alex have dinner together soon. In fact, very often.
Tricia wonders through the empty church with her mystery bag. She finds the church beautiful. "Matt" tells her to focus on the task at hand. If anyone sees her she's finished. As she walks out she bumps into the priest who offers to take her to see the bride. She claims to be there to audition for the choir. The priest goes to get Victoria and returns to find Tricia missing. Nikki tells Victoria and Sharon that Vic's hearing should be soon and hopefully the DNA test will come and clear him completely. Victoria thanks her mother for all her help with the wedding. Nick arrives and informs them about the delay. Victoria wants to postpone but Nick relays Vic's insistance that it go on. She reluctantly agrees but hates having to wonder about it since it's her wedding day. It's all Tricia's fault for this, she exclaims. Nikki is so happy to see Victoria in her dress. Victoria asks for a few minutes alone to get ready. She turns around and sees another bride (in a veil) wearing the same dress. The veil comes off: it's Tricia! She's not going anyhwere, Victoria is...
