Chelsea skips downstairs - morning ~kiss~ Time to take the pregnancy test, she grabs the box and runs back up.
Over Mimosa's on the jet, Victor informs that a Judge is meeting them at the airport. One other thing Victor must talk to his sweetheart about - a prenuptial agreement. A douse of cold water, Sharon now realizes the reality of what they're doing - and that it might not end well. Perhaps they should reconsider the elopement.
Instructing the staff on the flowers, Nikki tells Jack that things are progressing eerily smoothly. It's not a wedding without a few disasters. Abby's on her way over - to free Nikki up to be pampered by her Matron of Honour. Wondering what Jack's up to, Nikki leaves him to discuss his surprise with Sarge - we don't have a lotta time.
As the pool area's being prepared for the wedding, Ashley informs Traci that she's thinking about making her stay in New York permanent.
At Vikki and Billy's, Abby can't decide which gown Nikki should wear; both are gorgeous. She then leaves (wondering whether to sit on the bride or groom's side). Nick greets Abby in passing - and once Billy's been sent off, is there to tell Vikki a secret; Dr Tim's been found (they're trying to get him to talk).
Phyllis lurks around Trimble's until Tim startles her. No - she's not worried (about what he might say). No one's gonna believe him. Tim bets they'll believe this (he plays a recording of Phyllis confessing - she was driving the car that hit Chris and Paul). You son of a bitch - you taped our sessions, Phyllis hisses.
No, Traci doesn't think Ashley's being impulsive - she'd love to have her in New York full time (but there's people she'll miss). On cue, Abby comes over to hug Traci (who then leaves - your Mom has something to talk to you about).
Billy's inside with Jack (who's struggling to get out of his chair). Sarge is a worry wart - it can be dangerous. As Billy knows, Jack won't be stopped. He WILL stand next to Nikki.
Hello? Victor? In her riding togs, Nikki finds the ranch empty. Looking sad, she finds and flips through the photo album - filled with photos of her and Victor. Bonnie updates that he left on the jet this morning.
Going on 'blind faith', Sharon worries she may regret it. Victor reassures - a prenup is the responsible thing for a man in his position to do. By signing, Sharon agrees not to sue for NE should they divorce (something she quickly assures she'd NEVER do). Coming to the large settlement figure, Sharon changes her tune - where's the pen?
Chelsea rejoins Adam (who guesses correctly that she's not pregnant). Both decide they're ready - we should start 'trying' - now ~kiss~
The jet landed, Sharon has a bouquet in her hand as Victor thanks the guy who delivers the paperwork. Forget her earlier 'nonsense', Sharon knows Victor has her best interests at heart. The Judge boards - it's an honour to meet Victor's lovely bride. The pilot is summoned to serve as witness/videographer - and takes his position to record the vows (which the Judge then leads Victor and Sharon in exchanging). And as Sharon stammers that it was too short notice to buy rings, she gasps at the boxed stunner Victor pulls out of his pocket.
Did Victor say where he was going? Sorry - Bonnie doesn't know. No worries - Nikki will ask the stable hand about Blue Smoke. No need to tell Victor I was here.
Falling back into his chair, Jack refuses to give up - I can do this. It DOES have to happen today, he tells Sarge.
In nothing but a blanket on the couch, Chelsea and Adam discuss what kinda parents they'll be. Hope was a good example and had a book she'd recommend. Let's go to Trimble's to get it - yes, now.
Nick explains (to Vikki) that Phyllis isn't proud of her relationship with Tim - but needed his cooperation to accomplish 'certain things' (while married to Danny). Tim's bitter (about losing his license) - but should still respect doctor/patient privilege; which Mike's challenging. Phyllis has good reason to be scared.
Back at Trimble's, Tim assures Phyllis that he hasn't told anyone - we should keep it that way. Yes - more money might be a good place to start. What else does Tim want? He can't help but miss Phyllis - and would give anything, including this tape - for one more kiss.
New York? can Ashley work from there? Ashley's taking a leave from Jabot (and Jack). She's forgiven Abby's kidnapping stunt (for which she's making amends). I'll miss you. I love you. Mother/daughter share a weepy hug. Abby thinks it a smart decision - especially staying away from Tucker.
Billy and Sarge watch - as Jack struggles to stand briefly. OMG - Traci's excited - it's a miracle! Nikki's gonna be thrilled! Yup - that's what's made Jack work so hard.
Returning to Vikki's, Nikki explains that she didn't ride - ran outta time. At the ranch? On the morning of your wedding? Vikki seems quietly disapproving.
With this ring I thee wed, Victor slides the whopper onto Sharon's finger. He will improvise - watch me - he removes the band from a cigar. Both giggle - and with that, Victor and Sharon are declared man and wife ~kiss~
Phyllis is married - happily. Tim will accept a kiss on the cheek - for NOW - a down payment. Playing more of the confession, Tim gets a quick kiss on the cheek. Phyllis is gonna have to do better than that next time they meet - someplace less public. Tim will keep in touch. And when Chelsea and Adam bounce in, Phyllis marches out too.
You went to see Dad. But Nikki didn't - and went for closure - to say a private good bye to her memories. This is the one, Nikki chooses a dress. She IS sure - Jack makes her very happy.
Admiring her ring, Sharon wonders how to let people know - a big announcement? There's nothing to hide, Victor's proud of his beautiful wife - and wants the world to know. Do it, Sharon watches - as Victor calls Billy Abbott - wanting to send a video to his website. Stunned - by the timing, Billy would indeed like the exclusive. It's a deal, Victor hangs up - telling Sharon it'll be news before they land.
Summoning Tucker to G-worm, Ashley announces that she's moving to New York. Yes - moving. But GC is HER home - HE should leave. The divorce is only part of it - things aren't clicking here for Ashley. What can Tucker do to change her mind?
Billy's on the phone with his staff - upload that video. Nick then calls a truce - for Vikki and his Mom's sake. Phyllis is updated - telling Nick there's no need to take off. She then gushes over the handsome Jack (who arrives with Sarge). Aside, Billy tries to fill Vikki in - but ushers all out so the bride and groom can chat. In separate rooms, they chat. Ready to do this? Nikki can't wait.
Sharon finds the ranch feels different -and is told her LIFE will be different. She's to move out of the guest room for starters. Enlisted to help Sharon, Bonnie admits that Nikki was there (when Victor finds her riding crop).
New York's where Ashley needs to be. Yes - this is really it, she hands over her rings - please take them. With a sigh, Tucker kisses Ashley's hand as he does so - bye Beauty ~kiss~ Both are in tears as Ashley exits.
Outside, Nick startles Phyllis - who claims to be OK. Billy takes Vikki aside - to drop the bomb that her Dad got married today - to Sharon, in Vegas. Don't say anything to Mom - it could ruin the wedding, Vikki fears.
How many bedrooms does their house have? 10 - but they can fit 12 or 13 kids into bunk beds. Given a shove, Adam flies into Dr Tim. Excuse me, he growls. Uptight much? Chelsea chuckles.
Nikki just needs a couple of minutes alone. I love you Mom - be happy (over Nikki's shoulder, Vikki looks worried).
Victor? Finding the living room empty, Sharon grabs her keys and purse - then huffs out in a snit.
Jack's at the end of the aisle in his chair. Looks like this'll go off without a hitch, Billy jinxes it. Inside, Nikki primps in the mirror - turning when Victor appears. My God - what are you doing here!? There's something she should know ... What are you doing here!? Nikki repeats. Victor steps forward - now inches from her face ....
Next: You don't think Nikki changed her mind? a worried Abby asks of Traci, Sarge and Ashley ... Go - so I can marry the man I love in peace, Nikki orders. Stop this nonsense talk, Victor growls ... It's just another one of his stupid games - trying to ruin things for Mom, Vikki hisses at Billy.
My Thoughts: Why is Nikki walking all over Victor's expensive carpets in the boots she wears into mucky horse stalls? ... And did she really have a question about Blue Smoke? Hardly - she could have asked the guards at the gate whether Victor was home ... In her wedding dress (nice as it is), Sharon looks like she's ready to play a few sets of tennis at the club .. She sure changed her mind about the prenup when seeing how much Victor was willing to pay to get rid of her (which also might be before the jet lands). Why even bother with the 'for richer for poorer'? The bride and groom's joy will be multiplied if they are 'sincere and earnest' with each other? Oh puh-lease. I didn't hear anything about 'forsaking all others' ... Why can't Sharon move her own stuff from the guest room to the master bedroom? I'm sure it's mostly lightweight lacey panty/bra sets ... Nikki looked stunning of course. But was Lauren not invited to the wedding? ... Why is Jack exerting himself (and getting all sweaty) right before his wedding? ... Why would Abby be confused about which side to sit on? The groom's her Uncle - Nikki's her Dad's ex wife ... Vikki should have worn a baby blue dress - to match Billy .. Phyllis isn't 'proud' of her relationship with her shrink (while being married to Danny)? Why didn't Vikki wonder what 'certain things' Phyllis manipulated her shrink to 'accomplish' (cause I'm sure she's not proud of that either) ... Kinda funny that Tim recorded Phyllis' sessions - considering (if I remember correctly) she recorded them having sex. Perhaps he wouldn't have lost his license if he used his recordings at that time. Phyllis points out (to Tim) that she's married (which didn't stop her when she was married to Danny) ... Did Nick really offer to leave his Mom's wedding - because Phyllis isn't comfortable around Billy? What an idiot - isn't he supposed to walk her down the aisle? Where's Summer? Noah? Etc. ... This'll be news before we touch ground, Victor tells Sharon (who, when she was a responsible mother and not a selfish twit, would have rushed to tell Noah - BEFORE he hears it elsewhere). Now neither give a rats ass about how it might effect him.
