The wedding reception is in full swing.
Nikki and Victor celebrate their wedding day in incredible opulence and style. Everyone who is anyone in Genoa City is present. There are many toasts and banks of congratulations throughout... the general consensus is that this wedding was well worth the wait.
Sharon makes efforts to make small talk with Nick who completely shuts her down. They spend the majority of the party giving each other mad/sad looks. Nick later makes it clear to Victoria that only one thing is certain about his marriage to Sharon-and that is "nothing will ever be the same."
Nikki questions Victoria as to Diego's whereabouts, Victoria keeps it simple telling her mother about Raul's accident and explains Diego's absence as a need to be with his brother. Nikki tells her daughter to let Diego know that he is in the Newman prayers.
Phyllis bails out of the reception early, she tells Jack she has to go to the office stating "the website crashed... it's my job I've got to go take care of it." She says she'll come back, but after spending a majority of the reception with Kyle as his primary company Jack begins to doubt his wife's return. When she finally does return Jack notices she's wearing a different dress, Phyllis explains that she stained the other one "I must have sat on something," and she seems quite distracted. Jack suggests that they rejoin the party and show their family off. Phyllis readily agrees, and she, Jack and Kyle head back inside the Colonnade Room.
Isabella excuses herself from the reception to make a run home to check on little Ricky, whom they've left at home with a babysitter. Mary offers some unsolicited mother-in-law advice, remarking that Isabella shouldn't be leaving an infant alone with a babysitter. Isabella takes the "advice" in stride, kisses Paul, promising to return soon. Isabella stops by to see Diane on her way back to the wedding, she wanted to fill her friend in on the fight that Phyllis and Jack had at the reception. Diane is appreciative of the fact that Isabella came all the way out there to update her, but truth be told Ms. Jenkins took a sleeping pill and is on the verge of passing out. Isabella understands and notes that it's "10:15" and she should be getting back to the reception anyway. As Isabella is leaving she sees Phyllis pull into the driveway. Isabella sees Phyllis, but Phyllis doesn't see her.
Later, someone splashes turpentine all over the furniture of the pool house, taking special care to douse a picture of Diane. They then strike a match. Later a limping, coughing, Phyllis escapes a fire that is blazing in the pool house. She makes it out onto the pavement where she collapses by the pool.
Michael and Christine are enjoying themselves and having a good time at the party. Michael is certain he is the most despised guest in the room, that is until he spies wedding crasher Leanna Love. Leanna, dressed for a funeral, supplies that she came for the free food and fantasizes about getting revenge against Victor by shoving wedding cake in his face. Before she has an opportunity to turn the dream into reality, she is hauled off by Victoria and Nick.
With Isabella still gone, Paul takes the opportunity to pull Chris into a room and tell her that she must stop playing games with him. Chris is perplexed as to what Paul is talking about, Paul sees her friendship with Baldwin as Chris' way of meddling with his feelings. She had told him that she had no feelings for him, yet as far as Paul can see she tries to rile him every opportunity she gets. He demands to know what she wants from him. Chris grabs him and kisses him passionately-I think we know what she wants from him! Rattled, the couple separates and Chris immediately leaves. Rushing out of the room, she finds Michael in the vestibule and she tells him she is ready to go-- "now." They head out, but not before Michael sees a disheveled Paul exit the same room Chris raced from.
