Kay zaps Father Lonigan to the church and tells him she needs him to baptize Tabitha. He says, “There’s no way in Hell I will ever baptize that witch.” He admits Alistair told him that Tabitha is a witch and he has known for years. He thought he could fight her evil better if she never knew that he knew. Everyone tries to convince him to baptize Tabby or else they will all be dead before dawn. Father Lonigan thinks everyone is trying to trick him and Tabitha lashes out at Father Lonigan. He wonders how she could have been allowed in a church without bursting into flames. Esme fills him in on how Tabitha gave up her powers and Tabitha continues her tirade against the Father. Tabitha asks Endora to zap them out of there so they can leave these mortals to die because it’s what they deserve and she storms out of the room.
The crowd from the basement joins those in the church and they catch everyone up on what just happened with Theresa, Ethan and Juanita. Julian and Eve then reciprocate and explain about the volcano and the lava. The earth starts to shake again and Father Lonigan and Tabitha stand around the holy water, but they are having a hard time because the dark side is trying to prevent her from becoming baptized. Julian asks Endora to use her magic to help things and Endora zaps the bowl of holy water. The shaking stops and Father Lonigan baptizes Tabitha, but the volcano erupts again. Miguel says it didn’t work and Kay thinks the good side just needs some time to prevail over centuries of evil. Everyone is confused and Esme explains how Tabitha is a witch and gave up her powers for the good of the town. Esme tells everyone that Endora and Kay are witches too and Sam is shocked. Kay explains that all the Standish women have powers. They all listen to the volcano as it quiets down and Julian says Timmy was right, baptizing Tabitha saved their lives. Suddenly a bright light shines on everyone and they all stand with arms raised up to it. Tabitha cries and tells Endora that she’s truly happy for the first time in all her lifetimes because she knows what it is to feel happiness born of God’s love. Endora says she’ll live an eternal life like Timmy. Tabitha thanks Timmy because there was forgiveness for her after all and she will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Tabitha says there is only good magic in Harmony now – no more evil or demons. Sam asks, “What about the Cranes?” Julian responds that his father is dead and from now on Crane Industries will only do good things. Ivy says, “Redemption or not; I really need a drink!” Esme is way ahead of her with a bottle of pills and champagne.
Upstairs, Tabitha laughs after Kay tells her that she was just in Heaven. Kay's not sure why they let her in, but it was beautiful. Eve's having a hard time dealing with this: "First everyone goes to Hell and then everybody goes to Heaven... who is your travel agent?" Tabs just wants to hear about Timmy but the thought is interrupted when baby Endora suddenly appears. She tells her mother that Timmy told her how to stop the disaster. Eve wants to drink the sacrificial wine. Julian tells her to stop; life may be strange, but they can face anything as long as they're together. Kay explains that Tabitha needs to do something to save Harmony. Endora bursts out laughing. A drunken Esme stumbles in looking for the weddings. She wonders where the priest is; she needs to make a confession again - she was down at the wharf when the fishing boats came in and she became the catch of the day. She strolls out, saying that she saw lava running down the street outside.
Esme stumbles into the basement and tells everyone how much she was looking forward to sitting through four boring weddings. She stumbles toward the priest's office and knocks the camera on the floor. Theresa clutches at it. "Oh no! I'm never going to be able to prove what Gwen and Rebecca did!" she gasps. Theresa cries about how unfair this is. Fancy prompts Esme to apologize. Rebecca says Fate must not want Theresa to win. Ethan says it looks like nothing was on the tape anyway. Theresa clings to Ethan and refuses to let it end this way. Luis threatens to bring the camera to the crime lab. Gwen is smug. Pilar starts swearing. Gwen declares that the order of the universe has finally been corrected and she and Ethan will be together for good.
Back downstairs, Theresa cries and apologizes for ruining everyone's wedding day. Ethan asks for a moment alone with her. "I don't like to see you cry," he tells her. He just got her back and now he is losing her again, but he doesn't have any hope for them. "I'm only half a man right now without you," he says. She cries about everything they've lost. He knows that everything she did was just because she loves him. He promises that their hearts will always be one. Gwen reminds him that they have a plane to catch. Ivy stops her. "Do you think you'll ever be able to make him happy?" she asks. Gwen does. She breaks Ethan away from Theresa and tells him that he's had enough time with Theresa. Gwen takes Ethan to the door and tells everyone that they have their true loves and she has the right to have Ethan. Pilar tells her that her marriage is a joke. Gwen tells her she and her family are bad Catholics. Esme calls her a word that rhymes with witch. Ethan tells her to stop embarrassing herself. Theresa continues to beg Ethan not to leave. She runs into Ethan's arms again and tells him she can't live without him. He loves her, but Gwen is his wife. Before he can leave, Sam walks in with the camera: It's been fixed. It plays and they can hear that Gwen and Rebecca exposed Ethan to the tabloids. Gwen tries to pull him out but he pushes her away.
