The Bennetts arrive at the Seascape to celebrate Miguel and Charity's engagement. Kay jealously eyes the couple as Jessica warns her not to make any trouble. Jessica tells Kay that Charity and Miguel are getting married and nothing is going to change that. Sam excuses himself and Grace away from David by saying he wants to be alone to dance with his wife. David just smiles as he reminds Sam that technically Grace is still his wife, not Sam's. Charity seems on edge after the premonition she had of losing Miguel. Miguel assures her nothing bad is going to happen. Once Charity goes to freshen up, Miguel corners Kay. He informs her that she better not do anything to hurt Charity or ruin their wedding. He says that if she does, he will never speak to her again. She will lose him as a friend. Miguel tells Kay that enough is enough. He turns on Kay and accuses her of trying her best to break them up. He warns her to "Back off!" Simone and Jessica tell Kay she would be smart to heed Miguel's warning.
John tells Kay he heard what she said about making love to Miguel when they were in church. He tells her there is nothing worse than someone trying to come between true love. Kay tells John to mind his own business. She then remembers overhearing David's conversation admitting he works for Ivy. Kay tells John that she wonders if his Dad feels the same way. She smiles knowingly at David. She then baits David, unsettling him in thinking she knows the truth about his working for Ivy. She asks David how his good friend Ivy is doing these days.

Tabitha seems to have given up hope of ever stopping Charity from coming into her full powers. She dresses in black mourning clothes and tells Cecil and Connie that she is going to pick out caskets for them. Tabitha says that their demise in inevitable. Tabitha asks the funeral director for a coffin big enough for three. She explains that it is for her and her dolls. Cracked Connie and Cecil scare the poor funeral director almost to death.

Whitney goes to Theresa's office and gets an update on Theresa's scheme to break up Ethan and Gwen. She explains to Whitney that Ethan agreed to work for her. She is having the contract agreement rushed over to the Crane mansion so fast that Ethan will probably not even have a chance to tell Gwen about it. Theresa is betting that Gwen will be so furious when she finds out "accidentally" that she will call off the wedding.
The other engaged couples arrive at the Seascape to celebrate their engagements, courtesy of Theresa and the Crane money. The Russells arrive with Liz in tow. She again makes more threats to Eve that she is about to ruin her life. Liz tells her that the life she knows is over. Ivy knows something is up and digs Eve while she is down.
Antonio arrives at the party and seems a little shaky. Pilar notices it but Antonio explains it away.
Theresa makes a toast to the happy couples. Sam offers a toast to his son. He tells everyone that nothing in this life is more important than love. David toasts "first love" with Ivy's urging. This gets Kay to remember that she was Miguel's first love until Charity came a long.

Mrs. Wallace tags along to the party. She says she will do whatever she can to stop the wedding. Once alone, she tells Beth that there will be no wedding tomorrow if Antonio croaks. Beth fears what her mother might do to Antonio.
Antonio grabs his head and collapses. Luis rushes to his brother's side and says, "He's not breathing."

Charity keeps having frightening premonitions. She tells Miguel that there are many people at the party that are trying to ruin true love.

Sheridan looks heartbroken. Luis brings her some tea out in the garden. Sheridan asks Luis what will happen to their future if Antonio is to die before the wedding. She wants to know if he will still go through with his wedding to Beth. She asks this question three times. Beth is listening by the cottage door waiting on his answer. Her mother assures her that the wedding will not come off if Antonio dies. Beth goes to the sleeping Antonio and whispers a plea to him to pull through for the wedding.

Sam hopes that Kay will know something about David. Kay looks at Ivy and tells her father that she does not know anything about Ivy and David knowing each other. Ivy tells Kay she did the wise thing. Kay tells Ivy she kept quiet, for now.

Whitney informs Theresa that is was a good thing that she got interrupted and did not give Ethan the contracts in front of Gwen. She says that Ethan would catch on that she was only trying to make trouble. Theresa agrees with her and orders Trish to deliver the contracts to Gwen before the wedding.
