Chloe and Nancy are sitting at a table in the Blue Note. Chloe says she is glad there is no one in here but the staff. Nancy says the place would have been packed if she had let them invite her friends. Chloe says this is a mistake, she can’t do this, and there is time to cancel. She gets up and runs into Brady, who asks her if she is going somewhere. She says Brady’s name, and Brady says that is his name, and her name is Chloe Lane. He says that someday we’ll be reading that name in a program at the Metropolitan Opera House, but first she has to get into the master class at Julliard. To do that she has to sign for Cecilia Marin, and that is why they are all here tonight. Chloe asks what if Cecilia doesn’t like the way she sings. Brady asks who is Chloe’s toughest critic, besides herself. Chloe says it is him. Brady tells Chloe that he knows he has given her a lot of grief about her singing, but only to get her to sing from her soul. He says if her toughest critic thinks she’s ready to go, then she has nothing to worry about. Philip walks in, and Chloe says that maybe Brady spoke too soon - look who just walked in. Brady turns around to see Philip.
Jack comes down the stairs at his house, with a suitcase. Jennifer says hello, my husband to be, and tells Jack that he looks cute with his suitcase. She asks him if he is okay with this. Jack says the groom doesn’t see his bride until she is coming down the aisle, but call it tradition or superstition, he doesn’t care as long as it gets him married to the woman of his dreams. He kisses Jennifer. She asks what tradition is that, and Jack says it is the tradition of getting to kiss Jennifer for as long as he wants, whenever he wants, for as long as they both shall live. He adds that it is in the fine print, and asks if Jennifer is complaining. Jennifer says no, and asks if Jules and Verne are expecting him. Jack says yes, Jules is doing handsprings at seeing your mother in law again, but Verne thinks it is a kick in the pants. Jennifer asks if they understand that they are going to be on television tomorrow. She also asks how Shmenkman talked them into televising their wedding. Jack asks if it is for the free video. Jack then adds that since everyone is so spread out it is their chance to share it with everyone. Jennifer says the thought of reciting their vows is private, and she doesn’t want it to become a commercialized thing. Jack says this day is about her, and him, and Abby promising before God that they are going to become a family again. He says that is what makes it special, no matter how many cameras are pointed at us. Jennifer says not to forget about ratings, and Jack adds not to forget about gifts. He says he is worried about one thing, and that is that that Jennifer’s father has threatened to send a third gift. Jack says what was gift #1, and Jennifer says the Binturong. Jack says gift #2, and Jennifer says the TV show. Jack asks what kind of gift he is going to inflict on him next.
Bo takes off his helmet and gloves and gets off his motorcycle. He walks in to a small café/store, just as a guy is trying to steal some drinks from the place. The busboy is telling him that he has to pay for that stuff, and the guy asks who is going to stop him. He turns around to be face to face with Bo, and Bo says not the kid, me.
Hope, Marlena, and Belle walk into Club Echelon, and the doorman asks if he can help them. Hope says they are there for Jennifer Horton’s bachelorette party. The doorman says he will show them to their table. Belle says so this is what a bachelorette party looks like, and Hope says maybe they’ll be planning one for her someday.

Bo says he is starving and asks what is good here. In Spanish, Carlos says chicken fajitas, and Bo repeats it in English. He says it sounds good and tells Carlos that he does a little Tex/Mex cooking himself. Bo tells Carlos about Hope calling him Chef Brady, and Carlos asks if his wife likes that.

Maggie joins them at the table and says that the guest of honor just pulled up.
Nancy asks Chloe why Philip is there, of all nights. Chloe says that she is worried about Philip. Brady asks why, and Chloe says Philip showing up uninvited seems like he is falling into some old pattern. Philip comes up and says hi, and Chloe says it is nice to see him, only... and her voice trails off. Philip asks only what, and Chloe says only maybe he shouldn’t be here. Philip says he came to hear Chloe sing. Nancy says that there must be a mistake, because this isn’t a performance for the general public, it is only for those who were invited. Philip says he knows, and Brady says he knows, he invited Philip.
Everyone is clapping as Jennifer comes in and thanks everyone. Ian, the waiter, comes over to the table and introduces himself.

Mimi tells Rex that all work and no play makes Rex a dull boy, and that makes Mimi very frustrated. She goes over to sit on his lap. Rex says he doesn’t want to be dull, but seeing her in that dress makes him...and his voice trails off. Mimi suggests it makes him want to rip it off her body. Rex says it distracts him from his work. Mimi says good, but Rex says not good; he’s getting desperate and he wishes she could understand. Mimi asks if he could lighten up, because he is so brilliant and talented. Rex says it is hard to lighten up when he is a freak. Mimi says Rex isn’t a freak. Rex says there is no scientific explanation for why he is so different from other people. Mimi says she doesn’t want him to be like everyone else, she likes the way he is now. Rex says there is no guarantee he’ll stay that way. Mimi says Rex has lost her. Rex says not knowing how he is wired makes it impossible to know what could happen to him as time goes on. He could get smarter. Mimi says she hopes not, because she can’t keep up with him now. Rex says maybe he was programmed to spiral out of control someday, or maybe he’ll just gradually lose intelligence until he becomes incapacitated. Mimi asks if he thinks he might die, because she knows they all have to go sometime. Rex says there is no way to know, and that is why he is doing a comparison with the DNA of everyone he is related to. Mimi says she is glad she helped gather the DNA samples at lunch and asks if that is what Rex is doing now. Rex says he sent Marlena’s, Belle’s and Sami’s samples to an outside lab. Mimi asks what he is doing then, and Rex says he is checking and rechecking the data they’ve collected so far. Mimi says Rex is obsessed and suggests that while they are waiting for the lab results he should do something to try and relax. Rex asks like what, and Mimi says she is no genius but she gets a good idea every once in a while. She leans in to kiss Rex.
Bo calls Jack, as Jack is being fitted for his tuxedo. Bo says he knows that Jack is getting married tomorrow, but he needs a favor. Jack says it is tradition for the groom to grant favors on his wedding day. Bo says he is working on something, and he doesn’t want the police to know where he is or what he is doing. Jack says ouch, and Bo asks if he is okay. Jack says he just got stuck with a pin, and the tailor says that is what he gets for not standing still. Bo says he got this number that someone used to use to call Vin Ramsell. Jack asked what happened when he called. Bo says it is an hotel on the Texas border called the Del Rio inn, and asks Jack for information on it. Jack asks if Bo thinks Vin Ramsell is hiding out there.

Nancy says to go ahead then and go back home, or to the base, or wherever it is that he is living now. Brady says he doesn’t mean to upset Chloe, it's just that he thought it would be a good thing for Philip to see that she’d moved on with her life; that she’d recovered physically and was looking forward to the future. Philip says he is glad she is happy. Chloe thanks him and says she is not upset that he is here; she is just generally paranoid and anxious about having to sing. Nancy says having an ex-boyfriend there making you nervous is the last thing Chloe needs. Chloe says that Philip is not making her nervous and she’s sure Philip wishes her well. Philip says the best, and Chloe tells Brady that he’s right that inviting Philip was a great idea. Philip says to break a leg and that she’ll blow Cecilia away. Chloe says she is glad someone has confidence in her, because she doesn’t. Philip offers to give Chloe a kiss for good luck and kisses her on the cheek. Brady looks at Philip, annoyed.
Mimi is still kissing Rex. Rex remembers that he hasn’t had dinner yet. Mimi says that one kiss from her and he’s running on all eight cylinders.

Mimi says she likes the way he thinks, and they kiss.

Carlos begs Bo not to go there, and Bo says thanks for the warning but he has to go there - especially now that he knows they killed Carlos’ father.
Jack thanks the tailor for coming to the house. The tailor says to not blame him if one leg is shorter than the other, because Jack kept jumping from him to the phone, and to the computer. Jack reminds the tailor to remember that the tux is due tomorrow because that is when he is getting married, and pushes the tailor out of the door. He calls Bo back and says it is the groom and has got Bo’s info. Bo says that was fast, and Jack says he is getting married tomorrow, so he is on fire. Jack says the Del Rio is run by an ex-convict named Jasper, whose rap sheet shows a lot of versatility. He’s done the crime, and he’s done the time. Bo adds along with some stuff he got away with. Jack says he cross - referenced Jasper with Ramsell and found out that they shared a cellblock. Bo says he is going to need some more names, because he needs to set up a cover. Jack says he is way ahead of him.

Rex says it has to do with the trajectory of the turn, making the proper calculations. Mimi asks if he does this all while driving. Rex says it becomes automatic, with the variables being speed and road conditions. Mimi says she hopes he figures out how he’s wired soon because he and danger are becoming synonymous.
