After getting punched out at Lulu's, Dante notes she has a nice right hook. She can't believe he didn't tell her about Brenda's baby. Dante didn't think it mattered because the baby wasn't his and it didn't survive anyway. He promises there are no more lies. It doesn't matter to Lulu because she won't be able to trust him. Dante tries to convince her otherwise, but Lulu doesn't think they work. He made a mistake and she can't get over it. He thinks she's just looking for a reason to bail and he's given it to her. She thinks she set the bar too high and expected him to be perfect. He's committed to making this work and asks her to meet him half way, or even a tenth of the way. Lulu says she misses him. He thinks that's a good start. She wants them to be as happy as they were, but they aren't there yet. He agrees to leave her alone, but he reserves the right to fight for her tomorrow and the days after that. He tells her he loves her and leaves, as Lulu cries.

As they dance, Brenda tells her husband she will never be known as Brenda Barrett again. She is now officially Brenda Corinthos. Sonny is happy to say they are husband and wife and he kisses his bride. Out in the corridor, Molly and Morgan interrupt Michael as he is about to kiss Abby. Meanwhile, Tracy tells Luke he needs to stop Dante from working his way back into Lulu's life. Luke doesn’t want to get involved, but says he already gave his daughter his advice on love. On the dance floor, Patrick dances with Carly, who notes he's pining over Robin. She admits she's bad at the happy, love thing, but wishes him luck. At a nearby table, Brook Lynn questions Nikolas on his issues with Sonny. Nikolas won't go into their past, but he says he made a promise to his mother to be civil. He mentions he told Laura about her. Brook wonders what he said. Nikolas relayed to Laura that Brook works for him and he holds her in high regard. Michael brings Abby inside the reception and introduces her to Edward, who is taken by her. He wonders how the two became acquainted and Molly jumps in asking Edward to dance. Carly walks over to her son and Abby and says she's glad Sonny invited her. Morgan asks his mother to dance, as Michael kisses Abby on the cheek. Robin clinks her glass to get the room's attention and makes a speech, wishing Sonny and Brenda a lifetime of happiness. Michael, Morgan, Molly and Kristina all speak as well and express their happiness for the couple and welcome Brenda to the family. Sonny is next. He tells the kids how much he loves them. He also says Brenda makes his life complete and he can't wait to spend the rest of his life with her. The Corinthos' cut the cake and when it's time to toss the bouquet, Abby asks Michael to walk her home. She says her goodbyes to Sonny and Brenda, who are happy she came. Brenda tosses her bouquet and Kristina catches it, but Sonny tells her she can't get married for a few decades. Ethan sits with Kristina and notes how far she's come in regards to her father. She credits therapy and Ethan for helping her. He thinks she's a special young lady and asks her to dance. As they do, Kristina declares she will marry him someday. Ethan just laughs. Dante returns to the reception and congratulates the happy couple. Brenda and Sonny make their exit, as their guests throw flower pedals and wish them well. Sonny puts Brenda in the limo, which then explodes.

Jax brings Alexis to the Metro Court bar. They come up with several things to drink to, which mostly involve their failed relationships. Alexis adds they should also drink to facing the future with open hearts and they clink glasses.
