Babe and JR meet before the wedding. She tells him it’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding. He tells her that he does not believe in bad luck because he’s a magician. He seems very happy and positive about having Babe and little A as his family.

think they can trust David Hayward to show up without making trouble with his
JR and Babe look at old photos. They recall that they were taken the night they first met in San Diego. They laugh at how different they looked back then. He tells her that he just realized that that girl had his heart in her back pocket. She thanks him for saving it all this time. She then gives him a gift-wrapped box. She tells him it’s not a “replacement” but she’d like to give it to him. He opens it to see a snow paperweight with a picture of Babe, JR and little A. She tells him she knows that he cannot replace the snow paperweight of his mother that broke. He tells her that this is the perfect gift. Stuart comes to congratulate them. He talks to Babe while Jamie goes to talk to JR and acknowledges that he is the best man. Stuart tells Babe that he remembers not long ago that she had secrets and now the fear is gone because the secrets are gone.

In Janet’s cell, after Zach informs her that she killed his son, she tells him she does not know his son or what he is talking about. He tells her that his son is Ethan Cambias. She tells him that there is a misunderstanding that he’s heard from some crazy Pine Valley-ites. She tells him she does not take life. She gives life. She wants to save her little girl and they only want to hurt her. She says they are going to drug her and take away her freedom and she does not know how something like that could happen to her.

Krystal and Babe are looking for something old, new, borrowed and blue for both of their weddings.
David is locked in a hospital closet with his mouth and hands duct-taped.
Janet tells Zach that their children should be their hopes for the future. Hearing that, he asks her to tell him about that. She relives a memory of Amanda as a little girl serving her mommy a sundae. The room got brighter and brighter. In 7th grade she had to write an essay about the person she loved more than anybody and she chose her mommy. Zach then asks Janet to imagine Amanda at a ball, dancing with her fiancé but then there’s an explosion that kills her. She is trapped, all alone and bleeding. Hearing that, Janet tells Zach she does not like that “analogy.” He tells Janet that she is watching her daughter bleed and go into shock but is helpless to do anything about it. She has to sit and watch her last breath and then it’s over. Janet tells Zach she does not like that. It’s sick. He tells her that that is what she did to his son.
Noticing, David has not shown up, JR tells Babe that her father is a creep. She seems to agree but tells him she loves him in spite of that.
At the hospital, David has managed to remove the duct tape from his mouth and is screaming for somebody to let him out of there.
Dr. Madden tells Kendall and Ryan that he apologizes if he’s offended them and is just offering them options they might want to consider. Ryan tells Dr. Madden that if they consider what he is suggesting, he will be first to know. Ryan and Kendall depart.
Janet attempts to process the reality that she killed Ethan. When it comes to her that an innocent man died because of her, she appears shocked and tells Zach she is sorry. Zach tells her that sorry does not begin to address what he is feeling and what has happened.
When the wedding is ready to start, Tad,
JR tells Babe that he loved her from the
first day he laid eyes on her. When he
was hurt and disappointed, he thought it was all over but he now knows it’s
always been there. He admits to her that
when they were apart and he tried desperately to get their son back, it was not
in order to keep him from her. He could
not be without her and he wants her in his life for the rest of his life. She then says she never thought that she could
share the man she loves with anybody except their son but she now knows that
they would not be there today, were it not for another woman in his life; his
mother Dixie. She made JR the man he is
today. She’s given them everything they
need to have the perfect life with their child and she knows that
Janet asks Zach how it is that one thinks they are doing the right thing and what is best for their child but it’s all wrong and you do not know until it’s too late. A guard comes and announces that the transport is there. Zach asks where they are taking her. The guard replies that they are taking her to the psychiatric ward. Janet says it’s like she’s asleep but awake. She cannot hurt anybody when she’s awake. It’s kind of like a living death and a kind of justice. Zach stands silently while the guard takes Janet away.
When everybody is gone, Di calls for
