Simon is in a rush to get Vienna away from Katie. Paul directs Meg to call Lily and tell her to put the wedding together in an hour instead of tomorrow.
Outside the bookstore, Vienna arrives and congratulates Katie on her new book. Katie asks if she's read it. Vienna says she hasn't, but she may order a copy and have it sent over to the hotel. Simon seems in a rush to get Vienna away from Katie, but Vienna tells him not to be rude, saying she hasn't answered Katie's question about why she's back in Oakdale yet, and she reveals to Katie that she's back to see Simon. “Oh really,” Katie says, looking interested. Katie goes on to ask if she brought the prince along. Vienna answers saying she did not. Katie reminds Vienna that the last time she saw her she was wearing those jewels “that were to die for.” Again, Simon tries to pull Vienna away. She responds, saying if he and Katie have some unfinished business she can wait. Simon says no, then escorts Vienna away.
Henry shows up asking why she called asking him to get there in a hurry!. Katie reveals that Vienna is back, and reports to him that Jack called Vienna to ask about the jewelry heist at the hospital event! Henry's shocked, saying he thought she made that up. Katie says she did, but Simon appeared suspicious when he tried to drag Vienna away quickly to hush her up. She goes on to say she realized she might have uncovered the truth when Simon freaked out after he read what she wrote. She says she believes Simon and Carly did steal the jewels, then she asks Henry to help her prove it. She states she needs to get Mike back no matter what it takes! “Heaven help anyone who tries to stop me,” Katie finishes.
At Lakeview, Jessica asks Carly for a chance to help her, if what Katie wrote in her book is true. She reminds Carly that she's not just her lawyer, but she's her friend. She goes on to say if there's anything she wants to get off her chest she can. Carly says there's nothing she has to get off her chest. Before leaving, Jessica reminds her that she has her number, telling her to use it if she needs to.
After Jessica leaves, Jack approaches Carly. He informs her Katie came to visit him at the station, he says Katie told him the jewel theft might not have been fiction. Carly says she has no proof and wants to get back at her for being with Simon. Jack reveals that Vienna said she was confident the necklace she wore back was the real thing. “She said that?” Carly asks. “Does that surprise you?”
Jack warns Carly to watch her back in case Katie starts investigating the jewel theft. Carly expresses that says she's not worried about Katie.
“Even if she starts digging into your past?” he asks.
“I can take care of myself, Jack.”
“I hope so. The last thing I'd wish on you is more trouble.”
Carly thanks him for caring and believing in her. He says at least she isn't the only one trying to make up for past mistakes. She asks, “So you believe me?” He confirms, but warns her to watch her back.
“That little b***ch* has to be stopped,” Carly says, after Jack walks away.
At the hospital, Meg asks Paul if his desire to rush to the alter has something to do with Craig. Paul says no, it has to do with Emily. He explains, saying he can't lose her. Meg responds saying he won't lose her. He says he loves her and wants to be with her, and he wants that to start as soon as possible. Paul directs her to call Lily and tell her to put the wedding together in an hour instead of tomorrow. She agrees saying she'll need to get someone to cover her shift. He instructs her to make sure whoever it is doesn't tell Craig or Emily why she isn't there.
At the Snyder's, Tea calls Holden to change the time of their plans for tomorrow. He says it will be fine, “she doesn't suspect a thing,” he says before hanging up. As soon as he hangs up, he notices Lily. She must have overheard.
“Who was on the phone?” Lily inquires. “It was a horse dealer,” Holden replies. He says he thinks they found Faith the perfect horse. Lily says she wishes he would have taken her with him. Faith hears, asking if she's getting a new horse! Holden confirms saying it was suppose to be a surprise. She asks when she can see it. Holden says he'll take her to see it after the wedding.
Later, Meg and Paul arrive to deliver the news that they will be married tonight instead of tomorrow!. Lily isn't sure she can have everything ready in time. Things have been pared down a bit they inform her. Lily wonders if they can get the news to everyone in time, but Paul says the fewer that know the better. Confused, they ask them why they don't want people to know they're getting married early. Meg repeats what Paul just said, “The fewer that know the better.”
While alone, Meg says she's happy she and Paul are finally going to be married, so they can be happy like she is with Holden. Lily reminds her that no marriage is perfect. Meg says she's aware that Paul has done some bad things, but he's not that way anymore, she says he's a wonderful man.
While Meg stands in front of the mirror admiring her wedding dress, Emma walks in. She tells Meg how beautiful she is, then she gives her a pair of earrings. She says she wore them when she married her father. Meg puts on the earrings saying they're gorgeous. Emma takes another look at Meg, smiling she tells her she's a beautiful bride! “I bet you thought this moment would never happen,” Meg says. Emma asks her to forgive her for earlier, when she jumped to the conclusion that Paul was the reason she was going to change her wedding plans. She forgives her, saying given Paul's history she understands. She goes on to say she can't wait for her and Lily to see that Paul is a better man – a man they don't know. “As long as he makes you happy, Baby. As long as he makes you happy,” Emma replies. “He already has Mama,” Meg answers, accepting Emma's hug.
At the hospital, Emily tells Craig because of him things may work out for she and Paul. He asks her why she's so confident about Paul, but she ignores the question saying she has to go. He grabs her by the arm saying, Lying to me would be a big mistake right now, so you tell me what the h***s going on.”
He asks her how the blanks ended up being real bullets. She flashes back to when Paul confessed to her that he switched the bullets. Coming back to reality, she answers Craig saying she already told him what happened. “Well, tell me again,” he orders. She lies, saying that she put the blanks into the gun, but maybe Dusty checked the gun before he met with him, noticed the blanks and switched them back.
After Emily leaves to get Craig some water, a nurse comes in saying she'll be his night nurse. He asks where Meg is. The nurse says Meg swore her to secrecy, but says everyone is going to know soon enough. She lets the cat out of the bag! She reveals to Craig that Paul and Meg are getting married tonight!
After the nurse leaves, Emily returns with Craig's water. Craig reveals the bad news that Paul and Meg are getting married sooner than expected, “probably as we speak,” he says. In a rage, Emily calls him a trader! He apologizes saying he didn't know. She can't understand how Paul can do this to her. Upset by the news, Emily rushes out of Craig's room!
Vienna informs Simon that she read Katie's book. She says she wonders if he did steal her blind. She says maybe she should call her jeweler to have the necklace examined. As she picks up the phone, Simon grabs it and hangs it up. Vienna blackmails Simon, saying she thinks after all her generosity he owes her “one little thing.” “What's that?” he asks. “Come back to me,” she replies. Simon says he can't do that to Carly. Not happy with his answer, she threatens to call the prince to have the jewels examined. Again, she picks up the phone. Once more, Simon places the phone back on the receiver, then he tells Vienna Carly's a strong girl she'll get over it. “So, we have a deal?” “Sure,” Simon replies.
Before Vienna leaves, she and Simon share a very passionate kiss. Carly walks up and catches them!
Back at the Snyder's, Holden comes into the living room telling Paul he thought he heard a car pull up. Paul goes to check saying maybe it's his mom. Walking out the door -- expecting his mom -- he's surprised to see Emily instead!
