Extended Summary

Wedding preparations are still in full force, despite April pulling out as bridesmaid. When Lily asks if she can come to the wedding, Bianca invites her to be a flower girl. April still believes that Bianca shouldn’t be marrying Vittorio, and tensions are high when she arrives at Bianca’s wedding shower wearing a Liam Murphy t-shirt and chewing on a toothpick. When Vittorio turns up unexpectedly and makes a show of kissing Bianca and commenting on April’s t-shirt, she is even more disgusted. Determined that April is not going to ruin her special day, Bianca later asks Charlie to be her bridesmaid.

Sid decides to do something nice for Marilyn and treat her to a final night, just the two of them at home.

Leah admits that the town may not like what he is doing but she understands why he does what he does. She leaves him with a long kiss.
