Ethan noticed that something was off about Gwen and asked her about it. Gwen said that she was overwhelmed with plans for the ceremony when in fact she could not get Theresa out of her head.

Ethan asked Gertrude's advice on a gift for Gwen, and she suggested a treat that Ethan had planned for Theresa before she supposedly passed away. Ethan thought that it was an excellent idea but decided against it. He thought that it was too special for Gwen since it was a memory between him and Theresa.

She planned to reveal her true identity to Ethan.

Tabitha got a visit from Juanita dressed in disguise as Amelia Hernandez. She asked about renting a room in Tabitha's home, but Tabitha said not many people moved to Harmony. She tried to discourage Juanita at first, saying Harmony was not a place for anyone to live. Then, while serving her tea, Tabitha told Juanita all about the Lopez-Fitzgeralds. Tabitha felt bad about gossiping about the Lopez-Fitzgeralds at first, but Juanita convinced her to tell more.

It turned out she had survived Juanita's murder attempt. Carmelita said she planned to leave the country as soon as she got off the phone with Pilar, and she advised Pilar to do the same.

Kay tried to convince Miguel to go on a trip with Pilar immediately, but he thought it would make more sense to wait until they got married first.

After some prodding from Kay and Fancy, Luis and Miguel agreed to leave town and not tell Pilar they knew about Juanita coming to town.
Vincent invited Vicky back to Eve's house to plan how they would kill the citizens of Harmony. Vicky was resistant at first to team up with Vincent. She said she'd only killed people who tried to come between her and her Aunt Esme, but Vincent told her he did some checking and he knew she had killed her parents. Vicky explained that her parents wanted her to go to boarding school, so she killed her father and when her mother found out and said Vicky had to be punished, Vicky killed her too. Vincent said they could murder the citizens of Harmony during Kay and Miguel and Paloma and Noah's wedding. Vicky wasn't interested at first in hearing about the planning stage, but Vincent said planning the murders was the fun part and once you committed murder, all that was left was an empty feeling.
