Katya looks defeated and scared.

Susan wonders if she should call Zeke but Toadie says it will just worry him. He says they should leave to go the wedding but Susan reminds him that police don't want everyone there, as it's too dangerous. Toadie tells her maybe nothing will happen but at least it will make him feel better than sitting around and waiting.
Steiger tells Susan and Toadie that they are not going to the wedding. He tells them this is a police operation and says he won't have it jeopardised by anybody.

When Paul puts his foot down Elle asks about Izzy's involvement much to Izzy's annoyance. Paul says Izzy was about to leave and Steiger comes in and says they should both leave. Elle tells him the wedding will look like a fake if she isn't there as Paul and Gails daughter. Steiger sees her point and says she can stay. Izzy however has to leave, as Robert would not believe she would be at the wedding. But Izzy's insistent so Steiger comes up with a disguise for her…..

Paul is suitably shocked and wonders why Izzy is so keen to see him get married. She snatches the written vows from his hands and starts reading them. Paul takes them back and tells her the wedding just has to be material enough to convince Robert it's for real.
Elle is helping Gail with her dress and Gail is obviously nervous. Elle assures her it's ok as all brides get nervous before their wedding. Gail reminds her the wedding is a fake but Elle asks if she's sure, after all she's read Gail's wedding vows and they seemed to be from the heart. Gail tells her the vows are from the book of ‘Overworked Wedding Cliches' and says they are for the benefit of Robert. Elle says in that case why write special ones.
