Elsewhere, Joe expresses his concern about the marriage, but Tad reminds him Cara saved Jake's life so he owes her.

Elsewhere, JR invites Marissa, Krystal and the girls to come live with them at the mansion since he has the room. Marissa wonders if he ever stops pushing.

Tad assures his mother-in-law he intends on keeping all the promises he made today. Ruth smiles as she announces they are all family now. After the in-laws have left, Tad thanks his family and Griffin for helping them pull this off and for keeping Cara safe. Also, for making it seem like he's the luckiest man in Pine Valley.

Tad thinks that went okay, but then Krystal pulls him into the other room to tell him he is insane if the thinks that went well. She thinks he's treating this whole thing like a trivia game and being careless. She worries he could go to prison and then wonders how they're going to explain it to the kids. Back in the main room, Cara thanks everyone for what they're doing for her. Opal remains disdainful and Jake and Amanda leave. Alone with Opal, Cara calls her mom. Opal says she'll be upstairs if she needs her. Tad and Krystal return to the living room to find Cara talking to Kathy and Jenny, who have returned from a playdate. Tad sits with his girls and he and Krystal tell them he is getting married. The girls are happy for him and Tad sends them upstairs to get Opal. Krystal thinks that one went pretty well and Cara thanks Krystal before she leaves for the hospital. Once alone, Krystal expresses concern about Tad putting his life on hold by marrying a woman who doesn't love him. Tad thinks the two of them did okay together, but Krystal tells him they settled. Now, he's taking it to a whole new level. Tad insists he is fine with the arrangement because his family with the Martins is the most important thing to him and Jake is part of that. Jake always made him feel like blood and that's all that matters.
