The Ashby family are enjoying a wonderful Christmas Eve. Just goes to show you - anything is possible.
Driving along the dark road, Kevin objects to Angie humming the song she was supposed to sing at his wedding to Chloe (among other things - like being on the run because of her psycho baby-daddy). Eyes round, Angie meekly asks if she can at least turn on the radio.
In the church foyer, Chloe tells Delia that she and Kevin will get married soon - but Daddy and Vikki are (much to her delight). The groom sent out - the bride is nervous - but ecstatic - this time it'll be forever.
Inside the church, Nick's OK with Vikki marrying Billy. He and his sister weren't always as close as they are now. Pensive, Avery wasn't always on the opposite side of Phyllis. Aside, the rest of the guest speculate - perhaps Kevin panicked. Gloria suggests positive thoughts - Kevin will know he's not alone.
Where are Kevin and Angie headed? Away from Carmine's hail of bullets - to Angie's cousin's place on the Jersey Shore. Kevin worries that Angelo will think they took off together. I'm so dead. On cue, Angelo calls.
The twins in bed, Cane gets to work assembling a 'Radio Flyer' - he and Lily both laughing when he dumps out an intimidating amount of parts. They assume Kevin and Chloe are getting married right now - in a sweet and unconventional ceremony.
OK - so Billy's a bit nervous. Silly since it's his third wedding to Vikki. Getting a call from the dog sitter, Billy learns that Keeley bolted. Hanging up, he frets - if anything happens to this dog ....
Back in the foyer, Vikki goes over the bride's checklist - something old, new, borrowed and blue .... The lights suddenly go out. Uh oh - and omen? Vikki frets to her Mom, Chloe and Jill.
The lights also out at the Ashby's, Cane assembles by candle and fire light. Lily won't take a turn - she trusts Cane.
This isn't cosmic commentary on our being together, Billy sends Vikki back into position. Chloe assures Daniel that she'll keep smiling for Billy and Vikki (as long as she doesn't talk about it). When Phyllis joins Nick and Avery, he leaves the Phyllis to wonder if Sharon knows Avery's with Faith. Not everyone's as territorial as you, Avery snips back. Directing arched comments at Genevieve, Jill's called maternal - and mature. Billy and his best man (Jack) squirm when Jill calls Gen 'grandma'.
Vikki's blue is gonna be her face if she doesn't start breathing soon. Wahhh - she can't take anymore bad luck. Meanwhile, Angelo slips out to make a call. He's calling again, Angie wails - then answers with a cheery - Daddy, wazzup? Wazzup!? Where in the hell ARE you!? Angelo can be heard bellowing.
Angie stammers her lie - she got lonely for home - so Francine told her to go to her place. She's in a taxi - with a cab driver (impersonated by Kevin). Great - Daddy bought it. Yeah - but now they have nowhere to go.
Updating Gloria on Angie (poor kid's homesick), Angelo's heading back to G-worm. Glo will bring the wedding guests there after - shame to waste all that good food. Angelo objects to free 'good will' drinks on the house. He ain't playin' Santa to these rich folk. Oh - but here's a gift for 'Gorgeous'. When Nikki rushes in looking for something blue, Eden hands over her earrings. Getting a text, Billy worries - still no dog. And when Daniel reports the generator's broken, Billy starts to get nervous too - great - another omen (for Vikki).
Meanwhile, Phyllis frowns over at Avery' - who's reciting a (familiar?) rhyme as she plays pattycake with Faith. Chloe insists on giving Vikki her veil and bouquet - and Nick's more than happy to 'pass Vikki off' - but sure wishes Dad were here. No need to hum 'here comes the bride' - Chloe brings out her boom box. Judge Anderson? Billy Abbott? This is perfect. It must be kismet, the Judge says (as she married the pair before). Nikki's first down the aisle - Chloe and Delia next - then Vikki on Nick's arm. And in runs Keeley - to everyone's amusement.
Lily brings out one more gift - for Cane (who also brought something for her; a French themed snow globe. It's perfect. And Cane loves his framed painting - by the twins. It's one of the best days of his life.
Kevin and Angie enter a seedy motel room - straight out of a horror flick. Refusing to push the beds together, Kevin's gonna hang a sheet between them. We are NOT getting cozy. In fact, he can't look at Angie's face right now.
Vikki's also delighted to see Judge Anderson - who repeats; it's kismet. Declaring his love, Billy's done some stupid things - leaving Vikki at the top of his list. This is meant to be - kismet - together forever. Vikki tears up - when he was gone, she felt wrong - lonely. Now everything is right. Rings? Already tattooed on. The 'we do's' said, husband and wife kiss to applause - and the lights come on.
The wagon assembled, Lily invites Cane to sleep on the couch - wake up with the twins. OK - he'll pull the wagon - Lily will hold the camera. Deal.
On either side of a draped sheet, Angie watches Kevin's silhouette - both undressing. Ooh - is it cold in here? Failing to get Kev's attention, Angie pouts - do I gotta draw him a picture? Kevin in the bathroom, Angie tests the sheet curtain - and is disappointed to realize he can't see her silhouette (as she did his).
Back at the church, the newlyweds are surrounded by friends and family (who offer hugs and congratulations). Glo invites everyone to G-worm - and Chloe surprises them with the honeymoon she won't be using. We can't - you've given us so much already - and Billy can't leave Delia (who's OK with him bringing her a present). Jamaica? It IS kismet - thank you. Keeley? Nick's got that covered. Nikki? She'll be fine. Go - have a wonderful time. As the newlyweds exit to applause, Chloe's smile fades to sadness.
His bed made on the couch, Cane thanks Lily (who comes out in her nightie to say she loves her snow globe). Exchanging a good-night hug, Lily leaves Cane to wind up the globe - which plays Fraire au Jacques.
Daniel's at the mausoleum - to see how Chloe's doing. If Kevin was having doubts, he did the right thing, she figures. No - Daniel didn't mention she was having second thoughts. Crying in Daniel's arms, Chloe really thought Kevin loved her.
In bed, on her side of the sheet, Angie wonders if Kevvie's mad at her. He must get them out of this mess - and explain to Chloe. If he can keep Angie safe, well - that's something.
At G-worm, the guests mingle and wonder about Kevin. Opening Angelo's gift, Gloria's thrilled - G-worm's MINE!? Free and clear ~hug~ (as a skeptical Mike reads the document). Ready to go (with Nick), Avery thanks Faith for a great evening. Going back for her phone, Phyllis appears to comment on the rhyme they used to sing all the time (that proves she can't let go of the past). No? What's this? Phyllis grabs Avery's keys. I gave this to you when we were little. Avery had a sister once - and this is what's left of her. Because you are NOTHING like her, she marches off. Meanwhile, Mike hopes (to Lauren) that Nikki being 'fine' - isn't an act.
Visiting Victor, Nikki updates that Billy and Vikki are married - he'll have to deal with that. Annoyed that Nikki's pleased about it, Victor tried to protect Vikki. Be happy for her, Nikki adds that Vikki wanted him there. She won't let Victor ruin his life - neither of them killed Diane - and will prove he doesn't belong there. Nikki loves Victor - good night (she leaves him frustrated).
The newlyweds snuggle and giggle over green beer - at the airport's Irish bar. Cheers ~kiss~
Next: Is there a part of you that doesn't want to Adam to be kept away from you? Victor asks Sharon ... We need to talk about what happened in Myanmar, Billy and Vikki both look serious .... So - you not only work for my father - you're his friend - you're fired, Adam tells Mike.
