Marah tries to reach Danny and Michelle, but to no avail. Ed has no idea where they could be. Meanwhile, in a chapel, Danny and Michelle prepare to get hitched. But in the end, Michelle can't go through with the wedding. Darci admits to Frank that Eden asked her to hit on him, but explains that she genuinely cares for him now. She wants a second chance, which Frank agrees to give her. The Justice of the Peace has to leave, which kind of ruins Marah's surprise. Mel knows Jeffrey was once a judge and could perform the ceremony. Ben shows up at the barbecue. Shayne orders Ben to take a hike. Likewise, Frank doesn't want Ben anywhere near Marina. Bill, taking Ben aside, concurs. Ben sees Bill as a traitor. Holly blames herself for Ben's troubles. At the DA's office, Gus wants Eden to think about the killer's next victim and realizes that it could be her. Eden claims she didn't keep any records; the names of her clients are all in her head. Gus doesn't believe her. In examining the autopsy photos, Harley thinks she might know what caused that bruise on Ramona Hendon's neck: a man's signet ring. Harley suspects the ring could belong to Mitch Hendon. Blake is glad that this could shift the focus from Ben. Gus isn't thrilled to learn that Harley's been working on the case behind his back. Harley says he needs to start looking at other suspects, like Eden. Danny and Michelle arrive at the barbecue and are surprised. They will get married after all. Jeffrey pronounces Danny and Michelle husband and wife.

Marah catches the bouquet as Ben watches. The newlyweds thank Tony and Marah for giving them the wedding they didn't know they wanted. Michelle teases Marah about putting her wedding planner skills to work again and embarrassed, Marah says that she and Tony are nowhere near ready for marriage. Tony is taken aback by this remark. As this is going on, Gus tells Harley that he must accept that Eden isn't telling him everything she knows. Harley proposes that Mitch Hendon killed of his wife. Gus orders Eden to come in for questioning and to bring the records she claims she doesn't have. Eden finds a protector in Tony. As the wedding festivities continue, Josh must accept the fact that Reva still can't forgive him for deciding Shayne's future. Christopher Langham arrives and informs Reva that he is leaving for the conference in Milan. He asks her to go. Josh takes issue with this arrangement. Josh explains to Marah what he did. Marah thinks that, as long as Shayne is doing what he wants, there is no problem. When Marah is gone, Reva says she disagrees with that. She thinks that she and Josh need time apart, and will consider attending the conference whether he likes it or not. After being serenaded by Daniel Bedingfield, Danny and Michelle go to the Beacon for a one-night honeymoon. Danny insists that they have some elements of a traditional reception, including champagne toasts and dancing. He pledges to make everything right for them this time. They make love. Back at the Bauers, the joy of Danny and Michelle's impromptu wedding turns into a nightmare as Holly finds Ben lying motionless in the hot tub. He is rushed to Cedars. Holly confesses to Ed how guilty she feels about Ben. Gus and Frank try to ascertain what happened as Ed, Rick and Mel fight for Ben's life. Later, Gus is surprised to see that Eden has returned to the party and begins to question her.

Josh says Reva isn't going away to Italy - she is running. She insists some time and space may be good for them. Marina is upset about Ben, and takes it out on Tony and Marah. She thinks they should be sorry for how they treated Ben. Later, Marah decides to go to Milan with Reva. Although Reva is skeptical of Marah's reasons for wanting to go, she agrees that they could have some quality girl time. Marah tells Tony about her sudden plans to go to Europe. Eden is happy to see her leave. Reva writes a letter to Shayne, kisses Josh goodbye and departs. Meanwhile, Frank speculates about the attack on Ben. If he was drugged, for example, then any man or woman could have drugged him into the hot tub. Serious Gus orders Eden to save the victim routine. If she wants to help herself, then she should help him. If not, he's taking her down. Per a search warrant, Gus has collected some things from Eden's apartment among them her Tony scrapbook. Gus agrees not to look at Eden's scrapbook if she provides him with her business records, which she does. From her records, Gus learns the coroner "dated" the second victim Renee. At Company, Tony comforts Eden. Later, Lizzie tells Marina that Ben still loves her. Marina admits she never wanted Ben to get hurt and decides to visit him in the hospital. At the hospital, Frank tries to get through to a groggy Ben. Ben remembers being grabbed from behind, and then blacking out. After Mel describes Ben's stab wound, Frank and Gus hypothesize that it could be self-inflicted. Marina overhears them speculating.
