Theresa tried to cover by explaining that she and Pilar were talking about telenovelas. Ethan said Theresa used to watch telenovelas with Little Ethan all the time and he would be reminded of Theresa every time he saw a commercial for one on TV. He said it would be nice if life were like telenovelas, where characters die and suddenly come back to life, because that way Theresa could come back to life. Pilar told Ethan that if Theresa were listening, it would make her happy to know that he still loved her.

Pilar encouraged Theresa to go find Ethan and tell him that she was alive. Just when she was on her way to do so, Theresa realized she couldn't because things had to be exactly the way Ethan had imagined in the telenovela. She gave Pilar a note to give to Ethan while she planned a romantic evening for her and Ethan. Upstairs, Pilar gave Ethan a note that Theresa wrote for him, saying it came from one of the maids. It said that someone wanted to meet him in one of the spare bedrooms. Ethan went off to find his surprise.

Tabitha was able to zap the Book of Disasters onto the table before Paloma could tell what was happening, and then she blamed the spark on static electricity. As Paloma wondered how she could tell what her true feelings were for Noah and Roberto, the two showed up in Tabitha's living room and overheard Paloma talking about them. Kay told Paloma that if she had just listened to her heart, she would have known who to choose between Fox and Miguel to begin with. She encouraged Paloma to listen to her heart and said that if she did, she would choose Noah because they loved each other. Tabitha told Kay that Paloma was at odds with Noah because she caught him kissing a woman at the Blue Note, and she had real feelings for Roberto. Kay encouraged Paloma to talk to Noah about her dilemma. Paloma asked Noah if he had a past with the woman who kissed him at the Blue Note. Noah explained that the woman was just a regular, who obviously had feelings for him, but they never dated. Noah told Paloma she was the one he loved, and he pulled her in for a kiss. Noah suggested he and Paloma go away somewhere where they could be alone for a romantic time together.
Meanwhile, Miguel arrived with a box of supplies for wedding favors. Kay told Tabitha that she still wanted to know about the spark that she and Paloma saw behind her back.

Later when Kay badgered Tabitha about the spark, Tabitha said she was working on a surprise for Kay's wedding. Tabitha, Miguel, and Kay put together the wedding favors, and Tabitha thought to herself that Kay's wedding would be cut short.

Magic from the Book of Disasters zapped Paloma in the back, forcing her to kiss Roberto just when Noah walked in. Kay's wedding dress arrived at Tabitha's house, and she sent Miguel off so he wouldn't see it. The Book of Disasters started glowing while Kay was looking at her dress. In the kitchen, Noah caught Paloma kissing Roberto and ran off. While Kay played referee between Noah, Paloma, and Roberto in the living room, a spark from the Book of Disasters flew off and landed on Kay's dress, causing it to smoke.

Outside their room, Sheridan looked through the keyhole and saw Luis down on one knee. This time, Fancy said yes. Sheridan was too upset to talk, so Pretty looked through the keyhole and saw Fancy accepting Luis' engagement ring, so she screamed.
