She’s holding one up when Noah enters and declares the wedding’s over – Summer’s not marrying that jerk. He calls Luca a pig, and Phyllis agrees, but she’s tried to show Summer who he is and nothing’s worked. Noah questions her giving up and Sharon tells him to calm down. He won’t, and exits. The women think Noah’s like Nick.

At the penthouse, Nick chats with Chloe while waiting to drive Chelsea and Connor to the courthouse for Adam’s sentencing. Chelsea hears him tell her Adam made him promise to look out for Connor.

She texts someone to meet them at the park.

At the Top of the Tower, Luca and Summer prepare for their engagement party. Daniel appears. Summer is thrilled to see her half-brother and introduces him to Luca. She teases him about his mustache and Daniel warns she sounds like Phyllis. Daniel assures Luca he knows their mother can be wrong about people. Noah appears and starts causing trouble. Summer informs him he can’t tell her how to feel. Luca tries to intervene, but Noah wants him to leave. Daniel pulls Noah aside and warns he sounds nuts.

Nearby, Noah downs champagne. Meanwhile, Summer and Luca visit with her family members. Phyllis says Nick will come after court.
