A stunned Victoria confronted Brad about his and Sharon's affair in New York. Brad maintained that he merely ran into Sharon and that their meeting was innocent until Victoria informed him that the room-service waiter had come forward with evidence proving otherwise. Brad confessed that he had indeed slept with Sharon in New York. Victoria seemed somewhat relieved that Brad had finally admitted the truth. Brad urged Victoria to ask him whatever she wanted to know, and he began by explaining that his affair with Sharon amounted to one night between two people who love one another only as friends. He apologized to Victoria and said that he hated hurting her. Victoria shot back that Brad just hated the fact that he got caught. Victoria was tense as she continued to dig into the details of her husband's affair, longing to understand how he could betray his vows. Brad explained that his and Sharon's affair culminated from a mutual attraction. Brad sipped whiskey as he hopelessly attempted to defend his wayward actions.
Victoria recalled that she had watched their wedding video and celebrated the fact that she had found her true love the night Brad was in New York with Sharon. Victoria's anger seemed to wane a bit as she recalled fond memories of her wedding and the vows she and Brad had pledged to one another, but she ultimately put Brad into his place when she told him that she cannot believe a single word he says. Later, Brad brought in take-out food, but Victoria claimed that she was not hungry. Brad reminded her that they both had to look after the growing baby, but Victoria told Brad that she wasn't having the baby with him.
After Nick was called away to deal with a problem at the ranch, Noah was a bit sullen. He lashed out at Phyllis and told her that he didn't have to obey her when she urged him to put away his comic book and study for a history test. Phyllis took charge and switched Noah's comic book for his text book on Native Americans, but Noah teased that his comic book character is part Navajo. Noah told Phyllis that he'd continue with his comic book until she returned when she left the room to check on a crying Summer. When Nick returned, he sent Noah to his room when he caught Noah reading the comic book instead of the history book. Nick was miffed that Phyllis had allowed Noah to manipulate her. Phyllis laughed and told Nick that she thought Noah was being clever to tie his comic book character in with his history lesson. Nick was not amused. He told Phyllis that they both must be consistent with Noah and not let him play one parent against the other. Phyllis also worried that the press might try to get to Noah after Jack and Sharon marry. Phyllis tried to laugh it off when Nick urged her to read a parenting self-help book dealing with preteens. Nick persuaded Phyllis to consider the book to be a refresher course. Phyllis told Nick that she saw her inner child when she scanned through the book, but she promised Nick that she would read the book cover to cover.
Jack surprised Sharon when he asked her to elope. A stunned Sharon was concerned that the press would use the photos of her accident against Jack during his campaign. Jack told Sharon that they could keep their marriage a secret until after the election, so Sharon agreed to marry Jack anytime, anywhere. However, neither Jack nor Sharon could seem to find time in their busy schedules to squeeze in even a quickie wedding. However, Sharon jokingly suggested the pair marry that night, and Jack quickly agreed.
Sharon stopped by to pick up Noah and told Nick that she and Jack were getting married that evening. However, Sharon urged Nick to keep the news a secret. Noah was glad to see his mother but apprehensive at first that her unexpected presence signaled that something was wrong. Sharon allayed her son's fears and told him that he'd soon learn about a surprise. When Noah and Sharon arrived at Jack's, Sharon told Noah that her wedding was the surprise. Noah set his mom at ease when he told her it was okay with him for her to marry the "awesome" Jack. Jack was also relieved to hear that Noah approved of the marriage. Jack asked Noah to be his best man, and Noah agreed.
Just moments before the wedding, Sharon thought about Cassie after Jack mentioned that he felt rootless after his dad died. Sharon said she wondered what Cassie would've thought if she knew that her parents have divorced and remarried. Jack said that Cassie would want Sharon to be happy. Sharon agreed that getting married was a major step toward healing. The justice of the peace and his wife arrived to perform and witness the wedding. As the JP and his wife looked over the marriage license, John appeared to Jack. Jack wasn't happy to see his late father, but John said he'd come to give Jack his blessing. John surprised Jack when he told him that he and Sharon would be very happy together. When the ceremony began, Noah snapped pictures as his mother descended the stairs wearing a backless cerulean gown and carrying a bouquet of blue and white flowers.
As Jack and Sharon clasped hands and stood facing each other, Jack vowed that he could list a hundred reasons why he loved Sharon. He told Sharon that she changes the lives of others for the better. Tears flowed down Sharon's cheeks as she vowed to Jack that she loves him because he's given her the ability to trust again. She told Jack that they could get through any crisis together. They pledged their solemn vows and exchanged rings. Noah clapped as the couple kissed, and John gave a "thumps up" from the corner.
