Aw c'mon - who doesn't love Santa hats!? Mike chases Kevin into the church. If he's trying to calm Kev's nerves, it's an epic fail. Angelo arrives to say Kevin's needed at the studio. No - I'm getting married, he wails. NOW! Angelo orders. 5 minutes, Kevin wags his finger - and exits with Angelo.
At the mausoleum, Ester's also a basketcase. Jill, Kay, Billy and Vikki are heading to the church soon - and when the doctor calls with good test results, Delia's excited that she'll be going to the wedding after all - a 'Christmas miracle'.
At G-worm (to meet Mike), Nikki tries to get rid of Deacon - who informs that Mike won't be meeting her - the hostess owed him a favour. C'mon, it's Christmas Eve - maybe Deacon crossed the line - but he misses Nikki. Who else will she go to (if she walks away)?
Merry Christmas Victor (he comes in to scowl at Sharon on the other side of the glass)
Remaining standing, Victor thinks it nice that Sharon bought him a gift - but go home. Sharon won't be chased off. This is no place to spend Christmas Eve - please, go home, he repeats.
Nikki snarls at Deacon - knowing he didn't see Victor or Vikki at the park - he never left G-worm. Yeah, but a guy might take a break - go for a walk (and see something he wishes he didn't). No longer a drunk, Nikki vows 'this annulment WILL happen'. Grabbing her by the arms, Deacon has no intention of letting Nikki go (the best thing that ever happened to him). Finding it pathetic (that Deacon thinks he has a choice), Nikki marches off.
At the church, Daniel and Eden chat with the Baldwin's and Gloria (who suggests Angelo took Kevin for a father/son chat). Jack, Genevieve and Kyle arrive - boasting that he's been recruited for a hockey program (and will be going to school in New York; to become the next Wayne Gretzky). More good news; the engagement. Phyllis is the next to arrive - her smile fading when Nick joins them - with Faith - and Avery.
Ester still in a dither, Murphy's joined the crowd - and all gush over Delia in her flower girl dress - and Vikki 'lovely' in red. Chloe's next - looking 'stunning' in a fashion forward wedding gown.
Meanwhile, at the studio, Devon really needs the grumpy Kevin (who's face turns Angie's voice to gold). Reminding all of his 'understanding' (soon to be) wife, Kevin reluctantly agrees to stay - for 'one take'. I knew you'd come, Angie teeters in on heels - to greet her 'good luck charm'. You won't regret this, Angelo chimes in.
Unable to reach Kevin, Mike growls - he better be on his way back. Informing that Summer has the sniffles, Phyllis also makes it clear that Avery doesn't need to be included in father/daughter days. She needs your full attention. Arriving, Billy's introduced to Avery - then delights Jack with the news that Delia's on her way. On the subject of weddings, Billy will plan his third wedding to Vikki 'when the time's right'.
At the mausoleum, Vikki's thrilled to be standing up for her friend - and Kay's vindicated (knowing all along that Kevin was right for Chloe). The bride wards off tears during a group hug. I love you, Delia chirps.
Eyes on Kevin, Angie gets through her song. ANGELO'S gotta get to the church!? What about ME? Kevin grumbles. He's free to leave when Devon says 'it's a take'. Devon applauds - wasn't that awesome? Yes - let's go. Congratulating Kevin (and heading out for coffee) Devon's in for a long night 'getting this mixed'. As Kevin makes for the door, Angie squeals and collapses into a chair in dramatic fashion.
Victor's still standing, hands jammed in his pockets - as Sharon refuses to leave. We're both alone - think about what I'M missing. If Victor cares, he'll let Sharon stay. Let into the visitor's area, Nikki's stunned (and unimpressed) to see Sharon.
On Christmas Eve? Looking down her nose - hands on her hips, Nikki thinks Sharon should be home with her kids. Noah's in New York and Faith's with Nick - she merely came to bring some good cheer. Well, Nikki's there to see Victor of course. He doesn't see the reason - and obviously is NOT 'all alone'. I see wow - why would Nikki be surprised that Victor would choose this night to hurt her? You two have a great Christmas, she bangs on the door - and clip clops out. Scolding Victor for shutting everyone out, Sharon thinks it time he let someone in.
The engagement announced, Jill gasps - Bridezilla lives. Hopefully Jack's giving Gen her own office as a wedding gift. Grin pasted on, Gen likes sharing their cozy office (and annoying Jill; who excuses herself to go 'rage at God'). Hands on her hips, Lauren asks what's going on between Daniel and Eden (but doesn't get any info). Aside, Mike quips that Phyllis staring at Nick and Avery won't make them spontaneously combust. Phyllis doesn't want that - in front of Faith. Angelo arrives to say that Kevin will be there any minute. In the outer foyer, Mike's forced to admit that Kevin's not there yet (which clearly worries Chloe).
Kevin leads Angie off the elevator and towards the car. Hopefully she doesn't have food poisoning (or puke in his car). Hungry? She can have a wafer at the church - or an animal crackers (for whiney kids). I'm PG, Angie admits. How? When?! You've seen Carmine!? I'm SO dead - you're father will kill me! Hearing gunshots and squealing tires, Kevin ducks - there's a hit on me already!? Babbling that the jealous Carmine's been following her - thinks the baby's Kevin's, Angie wants to leave before he comes back. I'm getting married! Kevin screams - get in the car. I don't believe this!
Shaking his head, Deacon watches Nikki march into G-worm to order - and drink, a double vodka.
Doing the honours, a cheery Sharon pulls items from her gift bag; The Scarlet Letter (how fitting) - and some other books. She's done the impossible - out Victor in the Christmas spirit (which she knew nothing about until joining the Newman family). Her father wasn't around - Doris wasn't too festive - but it's nothing compared to Victor's childhood. Wistfully, he talks of Christmas trees - candles - the laughter of children.
Starting to panic, Chloe blasts Angelo for dragging Kevin off to the studio. Where is he? Where's my groom?!
Speeding to the church, Kevin can't believe Angie's baby-daddy shot at them. Angie worries that Carmine will find them if they go to the church. Calling the cops is NOT an option - we've gotta get out of town for a few days. If you love Chloe and want to protect her, we have to run.
Kevin would NOT miss the wedding, Chloe's reassured. Perhaps he has a flat tire. As Billy goes to find his 'jumper cables', Chloe gets a call from Kevin - are you bleeding? Do you need cables? You serious? Calling off the wedding?
Kevin WAS right behind Angelo. Pulling over, he realizes he needs time to think. If they get married, he's worried she'll get hurt. You don't wanna marry me? Chloe pouts. Also near tears, Kevin can't see her looking beautiful in her dress. Bad things could happen to her - it's not fair. He's just not 'there' - so is gonna go away for a few days. Hopefully he'll have answers when he gets back. I'm so sorry, he chokes - then pounds the steering wheel in anger. Back at the church, Chloe weakly informs that there won't be a wedding tonight.
Impatient, Nikki wants a refill. Deacon joins her - you sure you wanna do that? Nikki asks him to pour her a drink. But where's the strong (sober) woman who put him in his place yesterday? Who drove her to drink? Nikki's not buying Deacon's concern (though he insists he wants to take care of her). Please - let me help you. Ignoring him, Nikki sips.
In the church foyer, Chloe accepts Vikki's offer to go in and make a low key announcement. That leaves Billy to say how sorry he is - but he has a crazy question to ask. Yeah - do it, Chloe smiles her agreement. Repeating the words Billy's feeding to her, Vikki finally realizes she's announcing HER wedding. And when Chloe comes to tell her that it'd make her happy, Vikki allows herself to be excited. Guests applaud - as Chloe mopes in the foyer.
While Deacon's still wondering who hurt Nikki (whom he's pleading to take care of), Nikki gets a text message from Kay - summoning her for Billy and Vikki's wedding. Refusing to let Deacon come with her - or call her a cab, Nikki staggers out of G-worm.
Between doe eyed smiles, Sharon reads a book aloud to Victor.
Angie hums the song she'd be singing at the wedding - as she and Kevin drive into the night.
Chloe encourages Vikki; she had a cake fight at her last wedding - Vikki was arrested. This isn't THAT weird. Yes, Chloe will stand up with Vikki ~hug~ Both then laugh. Inside the church, Phyllis and Avery needle one another - while the Baldwin's and Gloria wonder what happened to Kevin - did he snap? As Mike steps out for air, Kay updates Jill that Nikki's on her way.
On her way, it appears Nikki's car veered off the road - and into a tree. She's inside - unconscious.
Next: Who are you? Nikki asks. I'm your guardian angel, the woman smiles... Nikki and her angel watch Billy and Vikki; My Mom - for her not to show up - I'm so afraid for her ... He's remembering everything we lost, Nikki watches Victor moping in his cell. He's remembering how much he loves you, the guardian angel corrects.
My Thoughts: It shouldn't be hard for Genevieve and Jill to share an office - neither of em are ever actually IN it.... Why is Chloe letting everyone see her in her dress before her big entrance? Doesn't the church have a dressing room - eliminating the need for her to ride across town (and crease her dress)? It seems her dress has wings - coming out of her ass ... Gotta love how Kevin does absolutely nothing to shield Angie from bullets. In fact he manages to spread himself out to be as big a target as possible. Wouldn't a normal person call 911 - give the cops the name of the guy trying to kill him? Next scene of course, Kevin suggests just that - then, for some ridiculous reason takes off with Angie - without any explanation to the bride he left at the altar - or the mobster who should be able to handle Carmine (a lousy shot who gives up pretty easy) ... I'll do the honours, Sharon says - like there's another option. It's not like Victor can fit his hands through the tiny holes in the glass partition to open his gift.
