Vienna rushes over to Katie's. She's a ball of nerves and worries about where Henry spent the night, Katie tries to calm her fears but Vienna is freaked out that Barbara knows she was knocking boots Casey. "Make Barbara go away," Vienna begs. Katie suggests she try telling the truth but Vienna isn't going to take a chance like that. She plays the Brad card and suggests that he would want her to be with Henry. Katie decides to help her get ready for the wedding.

Henry is sleeping at a table in the Lakeview when Barbara walks over and wakes him. He leaps up and asks for a caffeine IV drip. When he tells her he spent the night apart from Vienna, she assumes his fiancée came clean with him and tells him it was for the best. He's perplexed. She covers and they flirt. He wants them to be friends and asks her not to make this any harder than it is. Vienna and Katie peer through the doorway at them. Vienna worries that Barbara is ratting her out so she calls Henry and tells him not to run late for their wedding. Barbara walks Henry out and then spots Vienna. She sashays over and wonders why Henry is marrying someone who treats him like a dishrag. Katie loads Vienna into the elevator and Barbara marches off.

At the hospital, Casey tells Alison that he's officially not a father. They stutter through thanking and congratulating each other and he gives her a hug. Playing detective with her was a good time. She wonders how they can entertain themselves now... He suggests they crash the wedding but they agree that's a bad idea. They decide to get together later. He bustles off and a nurse hands her a letter. It's from Mick.

Barbara rushes into the dressing room at Fashions. She thinks Vienna is in there and tells her that she's giving her an hour to come clean with Henry or she will tell him everything. When there's no answer, she tears the curtain open and discovers it's someone else in the changing booth. Barbara storms out and spots Vienna paying for something on the street.

Henry is in the graveyard talking to Brad's headstone. He misses him and longs for his advice. Although he loves Vienna, he can't get Barbara out of his head. She put him back together and needed him in a way that Vienna never could. He worries he's making the worst decision of his life. When he hears a noise, he fears the ghost has returned but it's just Katie. She asks him if he's having second thoughts. "I'm on my third round of them," he says. He wants to do what's best but... She tells him he belongs with Vienna and reminds him of how happy the four of them were when Brad was around. Katie begs him not to let go of that. After he leaves, she talks to Brad, hoping she just did the right thing and everything will work out. She admits that there is someone in her life now but no one will ever take away what she feels for him.

At Fairwinds, Paul tries to impress Emily with the orange juice he made. She still wishes he'd confided in her. Emily may be willing to forgive him, but she's not about to forgive his mother. He thinks she's overreacting and urges her to be tolerant. Ali shows up and Paul leaves the women to talk. Alison admires her new ring and then shows her the letter from Mick and asks her to open it. Em reads the letter to her. Mick wrote about how he is integrating his personalities together and constantly thinking about her. He wants to know if they ever have a chance. Ali wants to forget about this and explains that she and Casey are getting close again. Em tells her to burn the letter and focus on the future.

Emily blames it all on Barbara. Paul begs everyone to forget about his mother so they can get on with the wedding. Everyone gets dressed and Em and Paul continue bickering about his mom.
