Proteus phoned Roger to find out why he was late in calling in his surveillance report. Roger relayed his encounter with Mateo to Proteus. Proteus seemed genuinely surprised that Mateo had gone above and beyond the call of duty by peddling more drugs than expected.

At the Pine Cone, Marian tried to convince Ryan that he had misunderstood what she had said to Mia. Ryan knew what he had heard: Liza was pregnant. Ryan took off to find Liza, leaving Marian and Mia alone. Marian tried to open up to Mia. Mia seemed envious of what she envisioned as Liza's perfect upbringing. Marian chuckled slightly and confessed that Liza's childhood had not been perfect - and that she had not been the perfect mother. Still, Mia knew that Liza and Marian would always be there for each other and that was something that she didn't have. "I can't make up for what Larry did to you and your mother," Marian said softly. "I am not trying to replace anybody in your life, Mia, but you're here and I'm here and we really are family, aren't we?" Marian sat on the edge of the bed next to Mia and hesitated to put her arm on Mia to comfort her.

As Laura was handing over a wad of cash to Susan to pay her for her services, Phoebe and Brooke entered the room. Laura was able to explain away her actions, but Brooke was quite suspicious of her daughter's actions. In private, Susan warned Laura not to ruin her "good thing" by doing anything crazy. Laura stated that it had taken her a lifetime to find people like Leo and Brooke and vowed that she would not lose them. Later, Laura's wedding planner, June, showed up with some bad news - the minister Laura had hired for the wedding was stuck in Hawaii. June offered a substitute minister, one who had married Erica Kane. Unfortunately, that minister was also to have married Leo and Greenlee. Laura erupted and tossing things around the room. June took to the phones to find a judge or replacement-replacement minister, but Laura tired of the planner's failures and fired her.

Leo met with Frankie and Bianca just hours before his wedding ceremony. Leo recalled that Frankie had a penchant for thievery when she was a child. Bianca didn't seem to care much for Leo poking fun at his cousin and asked that Leo stop. Leo tried to convince Bianca to attend his wedding, but Bianca refused, saying that she'd be there if he were marrying anyone other than Laura. Leo muttered that he wanted Bianca to be his "best person," but even that didn't seem to work. Eventually, Bianca ceded to Leo's requests. She worried, however, that people might think that she and Frankie were an item if they showed up at the wedding together. Frankie didn't seem to mind too much what people thought of them. Bianca asked Frankie for a few moments alone with Leo. "Are you 100% positive that you want to go through with this wedding today?" asked Bianca. Bianca quizzed Leo about his intentions towards Greenlee, but Leo claimed that he no longer had any romantic feelings for Greenlee. Bianca reminded Leo that the first time he married Laura he had thought that she was dying. "Until death do us part," Bianca said softly. "Those are words that you should not say unless you really, really mean them." After Bianca left, Leo unwrapped a ore-wedding gift given to him by Laura: a picture cube with a "Don't be late" voice message recorded by Laura. Leo put the gift down and raced out of the house.

Because Greenlee had gone against his request for her to stay clear of Leo and Laura's party, Jake held true to his promise to boot Greenlee out of his loft. However, Jake was noticeably upset when Erica fired Greenlee for her antics. Holding a copy of the daily newspaper that featured an ape costume clad Greenlee on the cover, Erica proclaimed that Greenlee's actions at the party were "the last straw." According to Erica, Greenlee had done enough negative publicity for Enchantment. She also noted that Greenlee had refused her requests to keep an eye on Bianca and Frankie. Greenlee argued that keeping tabs of Bianca was not part of her job description. Erica urged Greenlee to "read the fine print." Greenlee pleaded for her job, but it did her no good. Greenlee started packing up her belongings, while Jake attempted to assure her that her firing could be for the best. Later, Roger showed up at Enchantment and panicked when he learned that his daughter had been fired. Roger sat at Greenlee's desk and tried to tap into her Enchantment computer, but Greenlee's access had been cut off. "This is serious business here!" Roger chirped as he tried to come up with a plan to get Greenlee's job back. Roger started to breathe erratically and beads of sweat formed on his forehead. As he clutched his chest, he gasped that he was having a heart attack.

At Chandler Mansion, Adam hurriedly apologized for the wrongs he had done to Liza. He then put the burden of saving his marriage on Liza. Liza gave Adam divorce papers and urged Adam to sign. Adam read over the terms of the papers and determined that there was no way that he was going to go along with what Liza was asking. Liza made it clear that Adam had no choice; if he did not do as she asked, she would make certain that Adam never saw their daughter. Liza tried to march up the stairs past Adam, but Adam blocked her way. Adam grabbed hold of Liza and shook her slightly. Suddenly, Liza lost her balance and fell backwards off of the landing. Seconds after Liza hit the ground, Ryan arrived on the scene. Ryan immediately feared that Liza's baby could have been harmed. Adam was stunned by the mention that Liza was pregnant. He pleaded with Ryan to call the paramedics. Adam stayed by Liza's side and tried to keep her calm. The paramedics eventually arrived at the mansion, placed Liza on a stretcher and whisked her off to the hospital.

Leslie proudly shows a tied-up Tad their deserted chapel in the woods. She vows to marry him and to make him pay for ruining her life. She smiled devilishly and holds up a noose.

Back at Enchantment, Roger is having a heart attack and begs his daughter not to call an ambulance. They argue, but he insists that he will die if he goes to the hospital and that David Hayward is the only one who she should call. Greenlee rushes frantically to get the David, who is at the Valley Inn with Leo preparing for the wedding.

Vanessa visits Leo's room at the inn and badgers both her sons about their relationships. Anna arrives briefly, kisses David and leaves. David explains to his mother that he's not in love with DeVane, he's using her. Once she finishes attacking Anna, she turns her attention to Leo and argues with him about marrying Laura again.

Brooke and Susan help Laura prepare for her wedding. Brooke reassures her daughter that Leo is there and he loves her, then leaves to check on the guests.

This day will be perfect, Laura vows. Susan raises the possibility that Greenlee might show up and warns her that she should be ready for that to happen. She'll regret it if she does, Laura responds. When Susan asks her, in jest, what she would do, kill her? Laura only smiles and says that Greenlee will pay if she shows up.

Tad begs Leslie to stop the "wedding" as she fantasizes about widowhood. Jesse arrives at the cabin as Leslie leaves to gather flowers for her bouquet.

Tad and Jesse argue as Tad begs the ghost for help and Jesse takes him to task for bringing the situation on himself. Tad begs Jesse to try once again to make a connection with Dixie.

While guests arrive for the duPres wedding, Joe Martin pulls Dixie aside for a private conversation.

Meanwhile, Bianca enjoys introducing Frankie to friends and family. Brooke expresses her gratitude to Bianca coming to her daughter's wedding, but she explains to Brooke that she's here for Leo. When Frankie teases Bianca about "totally dissing" the mother of the bride, Bianca tells her: "You make me feel like I can stand up for myself." Edmund and Brooke flirt. They start to talk about Anna, who suddenly arrives. After Brooke walks away, Edmund and Anna have an awkward encounter as he asks her if she's tracking Hayward. Stay away from him, Edmund warns.

Exasperated, David and Leo boot their mother out of Leo's room just before Reverend Baker arrives. Noting that both men look very unhappy, the Reverend questions whether or not the groom really wants to get married.

A tearful Brooke shares a loving moment with Laura before taking her seat. Laura asks Susan for a few minutes of privacy to focus. As soon as she is alone she gleefully gloats about "winning" Leo, but is interrupted when Greenlee bursts in. The two women stare at each other, bristling...

Leslie returns to Tad with a bouquet of wilted flowers and begins reciting wedding vows. When Tad interrupts her ceremony and begs her to let him go she threatens to hit him with a shovel again. Their marriage will be brief and tragic but will be recognized as the best love story, she muses. A frantic Tad tells her he can do along with the wedding part, but not the part about dying afterwards. Leslie gets excited about his willingness to marry her, but when he pulls away from her kiss she vows to kill him.

Back at the duPres wedding, Joe explains to Dixie that he got a phone call from Leslie's sister Pam and that Leslie had attacked her sister and disappeared. Noting Tad's recent strange behavior and his mysterious, last minute business trip, Joe and Dixie get worried. Jesse appears and tries again in vain to get through to Dixie.

David walks up to Edmund and Anna as they bicker about her efforts to find Proteus.

Laura's bridesmaid walks down the aisle, but as the wedding march begins and all the guests stand up and turn around, the bride doesn't come in - she's throwing Greenlee into a supply closet. . "Stay there you little witch from hell!" Leo comes looking for her, and Laura keeps quiet about Greenlee's arrival. She sends him back to the restart the ceremony, then wedges a chair under the doorknob of the supply closet door. Greenlee is frantic to get out and get help for her father.

Laura begs her mother to start the wedding over.

Dixie gets scared when she can't reach Tad on his cell phone, and tells Opal that Leslie is on the loose. Jesse arrives and manages to make a connection with Opal: Opal hears that Tad is in trouble, he needs their help. Opal grabs Dixie's hand and they rush out, bumping into Laura as she starts down the aisle.

Laura walks down the aisle as a desperate Greenlee pounds on door for help. When no one hears her, she spies a ceiling vent and grabs a ladder.

At the altar, Laura recites her heartfelt vows to Leo. Greenlee climbs the ladder and into the ventilation system as Leo stumbles through his vows. Laura is unhappily surprised at the Reverend's announcement that Bianca Montgomery will be reading a passage. As she reads from the Book of Corinthians that love does not envy, she looks pointedly at the bride...The echoes of Bianca's reading reverberate in the vent as Greenlee searches for a way out.

In the meantime, Leslie continues to recite their vows "This is insane!" Tad screams, so she tapes his mouth shut. "You may kiss the bride...and die!" she says as she kisses him through the tape.

Greenlee tells herself she's doing the right thing. Leo falters when it's time to take the ring and say "with this ring I thee wed." Greenlee finds a water sprinkler and pulls out a lighter. Laura pleads with Leo to take her hand and say his vows. Leo realizes he can't go through with it, and puts her wedding ring in her hand instead of on her finger. "No," he tells her sadly. At that moment the water sprinkler goes off and Leo is the only one who welcomes the deluge.

Leslie finishes her ceremony and prepares to kill Tad while he begs for his life. Dixie appears at the window at the same time Leslie kicks the stool out from under Tad.

Wednesday, November 14, 2001

At the deserted chapel in the woods Dixie peered through a dirty window and watched in horror as Leslie kicked the stool out from under Tad's feet. Tad's body swung for a moment then stopped, as if someone grabbed him and held him up. Opal and Dixie broke into the chapel and Dixie rushed to get the rope off of Tad's neck. Opal tried to grab Leslie but she broke free and headed for the open door. Jesse told Tad it just wasn't his time and as Leslie turned to taunt Tad, Jesse slammed the door. Leslie turned back around and ran right into the closed door , and fell to the ground out cold. Tad told Dixie that Leslie wanted to kill him and thanked her for getting there. While holding onto Dixie he looked at Jesse and silently thanked him too. Opal tied Leslie up and stepped outside to call the police. Dixie was in shock over what just happened and wondered how Tad escaped hanging. Jesse told Tad he had "done a biggie" and now Tad had to tell the truth about Leslie. Tad told Dixie that this whole thing was his fault, that he arranged for Leslie to stay with her sister Pam instead of in an institution. He told her he did this because he thought Leslie could help him nail David Hayward. Tad admitted that he hated David so much he lost sight of what was important but now he realized the only important thing is loving Dixie. He took Dixie in his arms and Jesse stood up saying "He" must not be too mad at him, he's feeling back to full power. Tad smiled at Jesse and said "I love you baby" to both Dixie and Jesse. The police arrived and as they took a conscious Leslie out she turned and winked at Tad. Jesse told Tad to get the two women out of the chapel, to just get them home. Opal went on outside to watch the police take Leslie away in a squad car. Tad tried to get Dixie to go home but she told him she wasn't ready. He asked if she needed to rest a minute and she said she couldn't go home. Tad told her it was safe, Leslie was in custody and would be forever now. Dixie expressed doubts and Jesse told Tad he was in trouble. Dixie wondered if Tad was going to hurt his family again. "To get back at David you brought a homicidal maniac back into our lives!" She got more and more upset and Tad tried to take her in his arms. She said "No, not this time Tad" and left without her husband.

At Laura and Leo's wedding the guests were getting soaked by the sprinkler system. Laura tried to get Leo to leave with her but he said no, "It's over. I can't be married to you anymore." Laura yelled at him "She got to you before I could l....." and then stopped before she told the truth. Leo demanded to know what she'd done to Greenlee but Laura stood mute, looking guilty.
In the ventilation system a sprinkler was drenching Greenlee. She tried to shut it off and hurt herself. She yelped in pain and then resumed yelling for help. Leo heard her cries for help and demanded to know what Laura had done with Greenlee. Laura tried to make excuses and finally said she locked Greenlee in a closet. Leo ran out and she tried to follow him but Brooke stopped her. She told Laura to let it go but Laura was sure Leo didn't mean what he said. David stepped in and said that his brother did indeed mean every word he'd spoken. Edmund was handing out towels to the dripping guests and spoke to Anna. He tried to talk her out of finding David and as she argued with him David joined them. She told David that Edmund wanted to know why they were seeing each other. David wondered why it was any of Edmund's business and Anna said it wasn't really and they walked away.

In the lobby Bianca, Frankie and Rosa toweled off and talked about the unusual wedding. Rosa left and Frankie and Bianca laughed about their drenched look. Frankie commented that the whole town was nuts. Bianca said as much as it pained her to admit, Leo was better off with Greenlee. Vanessa walked up and the girls told her they were sorry for the turn of events. Frankie told Vanessa that they have to pull together for Leo. Vanessa said that in terrible times families unite. Frankie didn't buy that at all. Vanessa tried to make up with Frankie and invited her and Bianca to dinner next week. Vanessa left and Frankie said she was fake and it bugged her. Bianca thought Frankie was "wigging out" because Vanessa invited them together and seemed cool about them being "together." She then looked at Frankie and said she didn't understand her, that sometimes she seemed to be ashamed to be seen with her. Frankie denied this, and said she just didn't want to be around Vanessa because "she's nuts." Frankie said she doesn't want everyone to think she's like her Aunt Vanessa. Bianca said she knows who Frankie is and asked if she had any secrets she hadn't shared yet. Frankie thought back to a phone call she'd taken at the court house and felt guilty. She told Bianca she didn't have any secrets and they left to change clothes.

Up in the ductwork Leo crawled around and found a scared Greenlee. They stared into each other's eyes.

Inside the wedding hall Brooke apologized to the soaked guests and thanked them all for coming. She then bid them good night, effectively clearing the room. Laura was furious with her for doing that but Brooke told her she should go home and get out of the wet clothes. Laura said Greenlee was trying to kill her and wondered if Brooke was now on Greenlee's side. Laura started losing all control but stopped when Leo and Greenlee walked into the room. She ran up to Greenlee and screeched "You colossal bitch!", much to Brooke's horror. Greenlee ignored her and looked around for David Hayward. Leo told Brooke and Laura that Greenlee had come here looking for David, that Roger Smythe was having a heart attack and Greenlee needed him. He looked at Laura and said "Greenlee told you this before you locked her up!" Laura screamed that it was a lie, and that Leo couldn't possibly believe Greenlee. But Leo told her that he did indeed believe Greenlee. David, Leo and Greenlee left the room and Laura went berserk, throwing her bouquet at their backs. Brooke got Laura to go up to the bride's dressing room and asked her to take off the gown. Laura very hatefully said she was not getting out of her dress "Not now, not ever!." Brooke said that Greenlee didn't come there to stop the wedding that Leo did that on his own. Laura was stunned to hear her mother say this and Brooke went on to say that she believes Greenlee's story. She told Laura that she can't blame everything on Greenlee but Laura yelled and said she did blame it all on Greenlee. Laura said it was all Greenlee's fault, that she turned everyone in Pine Valley against her, including her own mother. Brooke stood in confused silence as Laura continued her tirade, saying everyone in town thinks of her as a porn queen and that she never deserved to "get out of the gutter." Laura sat down in front of the mirror and primped as she told Brooke that she will get Leo back, that he'll see he let her go "because all of you disgusting people turned on me!." She said she'll not let him go, not now, not ever. Brooke was appalled. She told her daughter to stay put, she was going downstairs for a moment. Brooke found Edmund and Susie and told them that Laura was "agitated." She looked around for Joe and sent Susie to go check on Laura. Edmund asked if Laura was ok and Brooke said she didn't think Laura was all right at all. She told Edmund how Laura went off on her and how she thinks the whole world was about her. She said that years and years of rage came spewing out of Laura and that she should've have listened to Edmund because he had seen this coming. Edmund comforted Brooke, and took her in his arms. Across the room Simone signaled Edmund. He sent Brooke to check on Laura and then joined Simone. She told him she didn't have much to report, just that Mateo has shut down on her since his trip with Hayley and the baby. She thought that it was either because Mat decided to take down Proteus on his own or that he'd crossed to the other side. Simone told Edmund that Mateo is "flashing cash and prizes" all over the place and Edmund thought maybe it was just a cover. He told Simone about Anna and that he thinks she's investigating Proteus on her own. Simone wondered if David could be Proteus, and told Edmund that she's seen Anna at SOS with David, Chris Stamp and Roger Smythe.

When Brooke got back up to the bridal changing room she found Susie all alone. Susie said Laura had sent her out for some water and when she returned Laura was gone. Her wedding dress was lying in a heap.

Greenlee, David and Leo arrived at Enchantment. Greenlee called out for her father and when they entered her office, they found it empty. Greenlee wondered why Roger would ask for David. She said her father said he'd die if she called an ambulance and that the only person who could save him was David Hayward. Leo asked if David had been treating Roger but David denied even knowing Greenlee's father. Anna was standing in the doorway and heard this deliberate lie. She remembered seeing David and Roger together at SOS. David turned and saw her standing there. Greenlee asked why her father would ask for David if they didn't know each other and David said it was probably because of his reputation. David suggested that Roger was having a panic attack, felt better and left on his own. Greenlee didn't believe this and was sure he was having a heart attack. She said she was leaving to find him and Leo said he was going with her. She asked if it was because he didn't believe her and Leo said "No, it's because I do believe you." They left and David apologized to Anna for leaving her at the wedding. She confronted him about his lie and tried to get information about Roger. He told her to stay out of it. Anna wondered if David had to find Roger before his daughter did and said she could help, she planted a tracking device on Roger. Leo and Greenlee returned and said they couldn't find her father. Greenlee was distraught and Leo took her in his arms. Laura ran into the office and screamed at Greenlee "Take your hands off my husband!" Leo looked angrily at Laura and told her to "get out of here now!."

Hayley rushes into the emergency room at the hospital where Adam and Ryan are waiting for news on Liza's condition. When Hayley asks what's wrong, Ryan informs her that Adam may have killed Liza's unborn child. Adam explains to Hayley that Liza stumbled and fell down the stairs. Ryan and Adam argue over where to place the blame for Liza's accident when Hayley intervenes and asks Ryan to leave. He refuses, claming the possibility that the baby Liza is carrying is his. Pulling Hayley aside, Ryan reveals to her that if the baby is his, it could be a sign that his life is turning around. Liza experiences a painful contraction as the doctor attends to her. Soon after, a tearful Marian enters the waiting room. Liza has lost the baby. Adam wants to rush in to comfort his wife, but Marian stops him. Liza does not want to see Adam, but she is asking for Ryan. When Ryan goes into Liza's room, she tells him how guilty she feels. She believes things could have ended differently if she hadn't kept her pregnancy a secret. Ryan requests a paternity test and Liza agrees. The test is performed, and the doctor pronounces Ryan the father. An enraged Ryan attacks Adam for killing his baby.

At the Valley Inn, Erica demands that Chris nail Frankie for trying to score drugs despite Chris's belief that Frankie is clean. Bianca comes in, followed shortly thereafter by a worried Brooke who is searching for Laura. Bianca explains to Erica the wedding was called off. Leo finally saw the light and left Laura standing at the altar.

Frankie strolls into the Valley Inn claiming to be looking for her missing purse. Frankie and Erica attempt a civilized conversation, but Erica comes off sounding cold and distant. When Bianca asks what is wrong, Erica accuses Frankie of being a drug addict. Bianca vigorously defends her friend, but Erica is persistent. Frankie stalks out. Bianca turns on Erica, furious that Erica, of all people, would attack someone for using drugs. As Erica and Bianca argue, Frankie is searching through a drawer in her room. She finds a gun.

Laura confronts Greenlee and Leo at the Enchantment office. She accuses Greenlee of again using lies to ruin her life. Leo finally sees the truth. He now believes Laura is the "real" liar. Greenlee brushes off Laura's accusations. At this point, she is only interested in finding, and tending to, her father. Worried, Greenlee begins to hyperventilate. David rushes for his medical bag, prepared to offer a sedative when Jake intervenes. Appraising the situation, Jake decides it is in Greenlee's best interest if she allows him to take her to the hospital. There she can have her injured wrist x-rayed, and wait to see if Roger makes an appearance at the emergency room.

Laura and Leo are left alone at Enchantment. She tells Leo it feels as if her heart is being ripped out all over again. Leo apologizes for hurting her. He goes on to say how much Laura has changed. He wanted her the way she used to be. Laura is sure they can still make it work, but Leo is through trying. He walks out leaving Laura devastated.

Anna and David leave to check the machine Anna is using to track Roger. Anna asks David what his relationship is with Roger. Before David can answer, the alarm on Anna's tracking machine begins to beep. It displays the information that Roger is somewhere in the hotel. David leaves to investigate while Anna continues to fiddle with her device. A few moments later, she loses the signal as somewhere in the hotel, a hammer is seen smashing the small tracking device. David returns to a suspicious Anna. She finds it interesting that as soon as he is out of the room, the signal disappeared.

Jake makes a phone call to find out information on Roger's health, more specifically, if Roger has any heart problems. The doctor on the line tells Jake he should check with Roger's current cardiologist: David Hayward.

At the hospital, Jake bandages Greenlee's sprained wrist. She is worried about Roger, and doesn't know what to do or how to find him. While she waits, Greenlee wonders about Roger's motives. Did he really care for her, or was he just using her for access to Enchantment. Despite everything, Greenlee prays for her father's safety. Leo arrives to check on Greenlee. He tells her the wedding is off. As he starts to explain why he called off his wedding, Jake arrives with a sad look on his face.
