At the Spaulding Mansion, Olivia asks Alan if they can move into the Beacon after the wedding because she just can't stand living in the same house with Alexandra. Alan refuses to do that because they have to stay in the house for the sake of his plan. Olivia asks Alan if they can at least not invite Alexandra to the wedding. Alan says she is planning the wedding, it wouldn't be right. Alan tells Olivia to just hang on because what he is planning is huge, and she won't be sorry she did as he asked. Olivia makes Alan promise to make Alexandra suffer, and then, suffer some more.
Philip asks Alexandra just how far she is planning to take this game. Philip wonders if he and his children will have to move out of the house. Alexandra says she would never ask him to do that because she loves him and his children. Alexandra says she did all this to protect his children because no one should be allowed to take a child away from its mother. Philip then figures out that Alexandra wants revenge on Alan and Brandon because they took her son away from her. Alexandra denies the accusation and says Philip is just mad because his ex-wives stood up to him. Philip says that when Alan strikes back at her she shouldn't come running to him for support because she won't get any.

Lizzie refuses the soda, so Bill sits down and says he wants to get to know her better. Lizzie says that there is nothing more gross and disgusting, then a guy who is just a few years older then her being with her Mom. Bill says he isn't such a bad guy once she gets to know him. Beth arrives to talk to Lizzie, but she says she is late for Olivia's wedding rehearsal and stomps out.
Marina says Frank and Buzz are being unfair about Ben. Holly arrives to plead Ben's case. Holly tells Buzz and Frank that Marina is almost 18, and Ben is only a few years older and a good guy; so what would be the harm in letting them see each other? Frank still refuses to let Marina see Ben.

Olivia says they are not connected by a deep love, but she and Alan have always been searching for a deep love. Philip advises Olivia to tell his father she isn't sure about the marriage.
