After the minister failed to show up at the church, Phyllis and Nick canceled the wedding rehearsal, and then Nikki, who was called away by her campaign manager, and Victoria, who wasn't feeling well, both declined to attend the rehearsal dinner. Victor was present at the dinner, and Phyllis was quite pleased that Victor was still on her side, but Nick told Phyllis that he had not yet told Victor about Phyllis' blackmail scheme against Brad and Sharon. As Lauren, Michael, Phyllis and Nick dined with Victor and Noah, Noah expressed his displeasure with the whole affair. Victor commented that Noah could sense that something was not quite right between Phyllis and Nick, and Victor said that he could sense it, too. Nick and Phyllis stumbled over each others words as they attempted to make Victor believe that their relationship is strained due to the stress of planning their wedding. Victor was called away from the dinner, further destroying Phyllis' hopes of a joyful family gathering on the eve of her wedding.
Later, at the tack house, Lauren assisted Phyllis with last-minute wedding details. Phyllis' festive mood plummeted even more when her attempts to solicit input from a distracted Nick and Noah failed. Even more tension was created when Noah insisted on staying at his mom's house. However, when Phyllis worried that everything had gone wrong the night before her wedding, Lauren assured her that all would go smoothly on her wedding day. However, Phyllis told Lauren that she was still worried because she's not sure how Nick truly feels about her after finding out what she's done.
Sharon told Nick that she had decided to move in with Jack. Nick assured her that Noah would be fine as long as he was with his mother. Nick told Sharon that he was not okay with the fact that Phyllis had blackmailed her. He also told Sharon that his relationship with Phyllis has not been the same, but Sharon assured him that he and Phyllis would work it out.
Nikki and Victoria discussed the fact that they were only pretending to be happy about the wedding in order to create positive publicity for Nikki's campaign. As Nikki gloated that she would thwart Jack's plan to raze Clear Springs, Victoria discovered old video of Nikki's striptease on an Internet site. When Victor saw the video, he was livid. Victor, Victoria and Nikki read numerous negative comments posted by people who'd viewed the risqué video. Victor was angered that Jack had lied to him. When Victoria and Nikki saw Sharon pass by, they called her in and questioned her about Jack's role in releasing the tapes. Although Sharon defended her new husband, Nikki and Victoria berated her harshly. Sharon, rebuffing the insufferable attitude of her former mother- and sister-in-law, said she now considered them to be the perfect revenge for Phyllis for having slept with Nick. Later, Victor returned and told Nikki and Victoria that Jack was innocent and that David Chow had released the video of Nikki. However, Nikki later told Victoria that she wasn't convinced at all about Jack's innocence. When Nikki and Victoria encountered David, Victoria offered to fly him back to New York to be rid of him, but Nikki instead hired David to help run her campaign.
After Jack dismissed Sharon's concerns that moving in with him and making their marriage public could hurt his campaign, she decided to live at the mansion. Mere moments after Sharon and Jack celebrated their new living arrangement, David Chow showed up to tell the couple that news of their marriage had been leaked to the press. David feared that the press would distort the truth regarding the fight that resulted in Dru's death. Sharon worried about the possible political scandal, but Jack calmed Sharon's nerves by telling her that another juicy scandal was about to come along that would steal that story's thunder. After learning that David Chow had leaked the footage of Nikki's striptease act, Jack seemed angry. Jack fielded calls from the press and denied involvement with the video's release. Jack and David argued about the video, and David explained that it would deflect flak from the unexpected news of Jack's wedding to Sharon. Jack was irate because he had promised Victor that he wouldn't fight dirty and because Victor had gone out of his way to offer support.
As Victor stood unnoticed in the doorway watching Jack and David argue, Jack fired David. Victor told Jack that he had made the right call, but David told Jack that he had just made a mistake that he'd regret come election night. However, Victor congratulated Jack for being the rare political candidate with integrity. Jack told Victor that Nikki has shown herself to be a formidable opponent and that he would do nothing to Nikki or her campaign that would compromise his friendship with Victor. Later, as Jack and Sharon discussed their living arrangements at the Abbott mansion, Jack said that he planned to have a room decorated with a superhero theme just for Noah. Nick called Sharon telling her that Noah wished to spend the night with her at home because he's apprehensive about acquiring another step-parent, so Sharon decided to keep Noah at the ranch for the night. Before Sharon left, she overheard Jack talking to John's ghost. She said she understood because she still speaks aloud to Cassie. After Sharon left, John congratulated Jack for finding another woman to love. John also praised his son for doing the right thing by firing David.
While Kevin and Gloria baby-sat Fen and Summer, Gloria searched the Internet to learn about DNA evidence. However, Kevin advised his mom to listen to Michael and stay away from William. As soon as those words were out of Kevin's mouth, William showed up for dinner. An obstinate Kevin, angry that his mother was cavorting with trouble, invited himself to stay for dinner, which was take-out food that Gloria pretended to have prepared herself. Gloria managed to bring up the Jabot investigation as a topic of conversation more than once. Kevin squabbled with William because William didn't press charges against J.T. when he attacked Kevin. Gloria bought herself some time in order to give Kevin a stern warning to lay off William when she sent her date out to buy ice. Later, after they all dined on Gloria's "specialty," Gloria again questioned William about the Jabot case, telling him that she feared continued publicity could further damage the company. When Michael came home, he was not pleased to see William. William left shortly after Michael came home, and Michael asked Gloria if she'd lost whatever common sense she had. Gloria insisted that she had a plan to make William tell her everything he knows about the Jabot cream-tainting investigation. However, Michael warned Gloria that she might as well wear a neon sign that reads, "Investigate me." Michael warned Gloria that William could soon suspect her as the person who tainted the cream. Just after Michael spoke those words, William returned for his jacket. After Michael and Kevin left the room to check on Summer and Fen, William kissed Gloria, and she told him that she had recently had a dream that they were happily married.
