Paul asks Meg to marry him again, and then brings in Emma and Barbara. They are all prepared for a wedding, which thrills Meg. Meg receives gifts of something old (a veil of Emma’s), new (the wedding dress she liked from Fashions), borrowed (family bible) and blue (a gift Barbara thinks came from Gwen). Paul even convinces Meg’s minister to preside over the ceremony. Emma jokes with Paul about him making it hard for her to dislike him.

Allison apologizes to Aaron and explains that she didn’t know what happened to her. Chris tells Susan that he is worried about Allison and her behavior and health, as Susan tells him to leave them all alone. Meg and Paul’s wedding starts, but Meg faints as she is saying her vows to Paul. Meg finally awakens and admits to feeling off and even hallucinating, but no one suspects it might be from the necklace she was wearing. Emily tells Casey he was the main reason she still has her son. She kisses him passionately in public and tells him that she no longer cares who knows about them; she loves him. Allison sees them and Emily tells her the same thing she just told Casey. Allison flatly tells them congratulations before she walks off. Meg and Paul are married. Chris receives an unsigned note and gift; it is a watch and based on what the note said, he assumes it is from his mother. He leaves her a message thanking her for her support, but not mentioning the actual gift. Paul and Meg revel in their newfound wedded bliss again, as the necklace sits nearby on Meg’s bedside table.
