Bill and Lizzie get pre-wedding parties, Olivia searches for Natalia and Reva gets a call.
Olivia is sitting at home miserable when Emma wakes up. She wonders why Nat didn't come to the party. Jane comes to babysit and Olivia hurries off. When she gets outside, she tries calling Nat and leaves a message, offering to work out whatever had gone wrong. "It's not fair for you not to talk to me," she says. When she heads to Nat's, there's no answer. She calls her again.
Olivia goes to the police station to report Natalia as missing. Frank asks her what's going on. She explains that Natalia didn't show up at the barbecue after they had agreed to go as a couple. He suggests that she might have gotten cold feet. She insists that Nat would have let her know. Frank thought Natalia was always open and honest too but it turned out he was wrong. She repeatedly insists that this isn't the same thing and walks away.
She goes to the church and runs into Father Ray. He admits that Nat was there yesterday but he can't say anymore – Natalia asked him not to. He suggested that she go to a retreat and asked him only to tell Olivia that she is gone. Outside visitors aren't allowed and she'll be gone until she sorts things out.
Ashlee goes over to Cross Creek to see Reva and asks her if she can get in touch with Dinah. Reva can't and shows her the door. She stands in the window and takes her ring off of the lantern. When she walks outside, she runs into Shayne. He's eager to hear news from Dinah and Jeffrey. It's starting to feel like they won't make it back at all. She tells him not to think like that and urges him to find something important enough to keep his mind off his emotions.
At the mansion, Alex asks Beth how the shower plans are going. She thinks they should have games. James wanders in half asleep. Beth putters around.
Billy and Josh are planning Bill's bachelor party. Shayne walks in. Billy doesn't want the Spauldings to come but Josh doesn't think they have a choice. "What could possibly happen?" Josh asks with a laugh.
At Cedars, Phillip tells Lillian he's still looking for the right way and time to tell the family his news. Billy calls and invites him, and the rest of the family, to the party. When he gets off the phone, Lillian urges him not to look for excuses to avoid coming clean. He doubts there will ever be a good time.
When Phillip gets home, he invites Alan and James to Bill's party. Alan says he'd rather sling hash with Buzz than go to a Lewis hoedown. Phillip tells his son he shouldn't go since he nearly sent Bill to jail. "Getting someone thrown in jail is kind of hard to forgive," James pointedly says.
In their room, Bill and Lizzie kiss and tell each other how amazing they are for getting nearly all of their wedding plans taken care of. He wonders why she looks worried. "I'm afraid my family will screw this up," she admits. Beth shows up and Billy follows. They split up the couple to take them out for the day.
Billy brings his son to Farley's for pool. Shayne and Josh are waiting for them. Alan and Phillip arrive and Josh grabs drinks while they stand around awkwardly. As they get beer, Bill remembers Blake jumping out of a cake at Ross' bachelor party. Josh decides to get them cigars, but this is just a pretext to escape. Shayne begs him not to leave. While the men play pool, Olivia calls Phillip and tells him she needs his help.
Beth brings her daughter over to Company for a little party with Vanessa, Lillian and Alex. They start drinking and toasting to Lizzie and true love. They put a tiara on Lizzie as Reva and Ashlee arrive. Alex begins playing 'pin the banana' on a poster of Bill's face pasted on a muscleman's body. After the games, Lizzie asks Vanessa what she should get Bill. Vanessa says that she makes him happy and that's enough. Bill calls to tell her that he's partied out and arranges to meet her at the beach.
Josh runs into James in the minimart and asks him to come to the party. When James heads over, Alan tells him to get a cue so they can show the Lewis' how to play. Billy offers to get rid of James for his son. Bill says that he's trying to be nice for Lizzie's sake. James hears this and punches Bill out. After they're split up, Alan lays into Billy and he promptly punches Alan in the face.
Phillip meets Olivia outside the church, she tells him that Nat left her and she doesn't know what to do. "I can't drive. Will you take me home?" she asks in tears. As he puts her in his car, he gets a call from Josh telling him that James was in a fight.
Olivia goes back to Nat's and tries writing a note. She becomes too upset and throws it at the house before collapsing in tears.
"You're right, I shouldn't have come," James says as he walks out of the bar and into his father. He's flippant and walks off. Phillip goes in as Alan ices his jaw and everyone shouts. Frank walks in as Phillip sends his father out. Bill walks out and fills Lizzie in on what happened. Alan approaches her and tells her it's not too late to 'escape the yammering yahoos'. She refuses. He announces that he's done with her and won't be going to her wedding.
As Reva walks down the street, Jeffrey calls. "I don't have much time," he says.
