Cassie says that she never stopped loving him, but she can’t take his lies. Edmund asks for one more chance.

Danny and Michelle arrive at a wedding chapel in Vegas. They begin to play with all the cheesy decorations. The manager comes out and prepares to “get them split in a jiffy.” Both Danny and Michelle seem unsure.

The manager tells them to pick a song for their “themed divorce.” He tells them he’s going to finish their paper work while they pick a theme.

Michelle and Danny reminisce about their life. The manager comes back out, but falls to the floor. He has food poisoning. Michelle thinks he will be sick until morning.

Inside the exam room, Ross asks Dinah what she thinks will happen in eight months. He doesn’t believe she will just give up the baby and leave. Dinah tries to explain to him that Cassie is taking care of her and Edmund is devoted to her and “their” baby. Ross and Dinah get into a screaming match. He yells that she is just trying to take Cassie’s entire life like she did with Hart. Edmund and Cassie burst in the room and tell Ross to back off. Dinah can’t have any stress. Ross swears that Dinah is in this for all the wrong reasons. Cassie tells everyone to be quiet and leaves. Ross follows her out, and Cassie pleads with him to not cause any more trouble. She is watching Dinah like a hawk. Ross asks her if she was watching when Dinah fell in love with her husband. Cassie denies that this is true and can’t believe that Ross would say that. She is sure that Edmund loves on her. Ross tells her that Dinah is very disturbed, and he is going to take measures to help his daughter get well. Cassie says she has had enough, and Edmund, her, and Dinah leave.

Ross gets on the phone with Vanessa and tells her to come to Springfield now.

Outside in the prison lobby, Gus tries to fight his way into visiting Harley. The guard refuses to let him see Harley. Lena and Harley spy him from outside, but Harley does not want to see him. Gus is led off. Gus is brought to the Warden’s office. He doesn’t know who Mallet is.

Beth tries to comfort Lizzie, who has returned to the table. They begin to make jokes, and one of them is about Olivia, who is outside. Olivia walks back in while they are laughing and informs them that the joke is really on them, and it’s not so funny, if they value their freedom. Olivia tells them that the only reason Gus is back at Spaulding is to pin the murder on one of them. She suggests they keep a very close eye on him.

Harley tells Lena that it’s better she didn’t see Gus. Lena walks out of her cell and makes a call from a cell phone. She wants to make sure the person is living up to their end of the bargain. It turns out to be Alan on the other line. Lena prepares to give him some news about Harley.
