The episode begins at the Corinthos home. Jason enters, so Carly greets him and asks how things are. Jason says Sonny is concerned and worried about Carly. Jason reprimands her for threatening the mob bosses.
At Sonny's safe-house, Roy enters and says Alcazar is getting frustrated. Roy thinks Alcazar is more concerned with making sure Jax is dead than worrying about Brenda. Sonny comments that everything has been arranged.
In Brenda's part of the safe-house, a guard brings her food and a newspaper. Brenda is disturbed by the wedding announcement for Jax and Skye that she happens to read.
In Alcazar's limo, Alcazar comments on seeing Jax in the newspaper. Alcazar and his guard discuss their plans to find Brenda at the wedding, since he knows she will not be able to resist making an appearance. Alcazar comments that Roy's heart is no longer in the "assignment" to kill Jax, so Alcazar may have to get the job done himself.
At St. Timothy's, Jax surprises Skye with the beautiful decorations he had placed around the alter and on the pews. Skye, visibly touched, says everything looks incredible. They discuss how the wedding will be simply unforgettable.
Alcazar is ominously seen lingering around the outside of St. Timothy's- where Jax and Skye are together inside.
Back inside the church, Skye and Jax continue to talk about being awed by their love. Jax and Skye should be getting ready for the service and presents the dress he bought for her. Jax's parents arrive, and Mrs. Jax makes sure the men (Jax and his father) are out of the room so the bride can begin to get ready. Mrs. Jax and Skye share a wonderful moment when they talk about being family to one another now. Mrs. Jax lovingly steps in to help Skye prepare for the ceremony.
Outside St. Timothy's, Jax and his father talk about the newspaper article. Jax's father warns that the public announcement may not have been a safe move. Jax admits that he had nothing to do with having the announcement published, and says he wanted to keep his wedding private. Jax's father wonders if Alcazar will make an appearance at the wedding. Jax says that he does not care if Alcazar does show up because he realized that he has something much bigger in his life now. His father says that he has never seen Jax this happy. Jax comments that he almost let happiness get away before, referring to Brenda, but he will not do the same this time. Jax's father gives Jax sound marital advice.
At the Corinthos home, Jason is angry with Carly for meeting with the bosses. He tells her that she should have called him. Carly is also upset because Jason and Sonny have both been hard to reach. Jason says she'd be better off on the island. Carly says he's doing a terrible job of lying - she knows Jason and Sonny need her in Port Charles to continue with the grieving widow act. Jason says he and Sonny knew about the bosses and things were in place; but Carly's baseball bat and her initiatives were not productive. He tells her to stay out of the business because "Too many other things" are going on now. He wants her to remove herself from the situation and just wait for Sonny to come home. Carly is frustrated because she doesn't know when Sonny will return. She asks if Sonny is actively mad at her; Jason admits that Sonny doesn't even know about her episode at the mob meeting. Jason has not had a chance to tell Sonny. Carly asks if she can tell Sonny herself in person. Jason says her timing is bad because of the things going on. Carly wants to know why things are more complicated than they should be. She asks if the "woman on the yacht" has anything to do with the additional complications. Jason gets quiet, demands that Carly give him her bat, and then leaves in a huff. Carly is exasperated and goes to the phone to call someone. She asks the person she calls to come see her.
At Sonny's safehouse, Sonny tells Roy that he put the announcement in the paper about Jax and Skye in order to lure Alcazar. The plan is to ambush him at the wedding. Roy agrees that this is a good idea and inquires about Brenda. Sonny reports that Brenda blames herself and only cares about saving Jax. Roy says that, at the very least, the night's actions will finally free Brenda of Alcazar's influence. Sonny says the plan will allow for Skye and Jax to be happily married, Roy will be able to keep his money, and Sonny will be rid of Alcazar.
In Brenda's room at the safe house, the guard checks Brenda's tray of food and notices that something is missing. He finds a knife hidden on her. Brenda is upset - as the guard leaves, she throws a pitcher of water at the door, and it shatters to the floor.
In Sonny's room at the safe-house, Jason hears the pitcher of water crash on the other side, and recommends that they ship Brenda off to the island. He implies that it's not a good idea to keep her around because she "hasn't changed." Sonny says things will be all right, then asks what the bat (Carly's bat that Jason was carrying) is for. Jason begins to tell Sonny about Carly's rendezvous with the mob bosses by saying that things have been very difficult for her.
At the Corinthos home, Sonny's guard, Greg, arrives. Carly asks where Benny is (that is the person she called earlier) It is explained that Benny is busy with a conference call. Carly then lies to Greg by telling him that Jason gave her a message that he was needed at the safe-house. Greg is leery of Carly's statement, but Carly explains that Jason didn't call because they fear the phones may be tapped. The guard believes Carly's lie and goes to the safe-house. Carly, now unguarded, waits a moment and follows him out the door.
On the dock, Alexis, dressed for Jax and Skye's wedding, is met by Ned. Ned asks what Alexis was doing/thinking there on the dock. Alexis begins to reflect about the last time she and Sonny had a civil conversation - they were standing on the dock together, and Alexis had commented that Sonny had "given her something that (she) would always cherish." Alexis wonders if Sonny had known that she was pregnant. She feels guilty about ever wishing him dead. Ned tries to calm her, but Alexis is concerned with what she will tell her daughter if she ever asks about her father.

At the dock, Ned wants Alexis to take it easy, and stop putting herself through so much strife over Sonny.

She wants to know what will happen when the girl asks questions. Ned gets upset, and says that by that time Sonny will be long gone. He says Sonny led a violent life, and died a violent death. If the girl ever asks why she wasn't told the truth about her father, Ned advises Alexis to say that she was simply trying her best to protect her.
