It’s Casey and Alison’s wedding day. Mick has Alison in the Bell Tower, and he lets her go downstairs when they hear footsteps. Alison finds that it’s Emily, who calls Margo to send some police help to get Mick out of there and get Alison to safety. Margo follows up, and Mick is led to a police car. Mick escapes and comes back in time for the wedding. It becomes a hostage situation – Mick, Paul, Emily, Alison, Casey, Barbara and Henry are inside. Bob fakes an illness and he and Kim are taken to the hospital for examination. Mick shoots Paul in the leg. Alison confronts Mick, urging him to remember who he is and who he is not (James). But James wins out, and when Alison accuses him of not being a good liar, he says, to Casey’s shock, that he got Alison into bed, didn’t he? Casey hurls himself at Mick and Mick’s gun goes off again, but it doesn’t hit anyone. Outside, Margo’s panicked to hear gun shots. She’s calls Mick and tries to negotiate with him. Mick-as-James won’t be negotiated with — he takes Ali and Casey to another room, while everyone else must stay in the church. Mick sadistically ties up Alison and Casey so they can talk about her betrayal. Casey berates Ali for lying to him and making him feel like a fool. Ali convinces Mick that she’ll run away with him and she leads him out of the church – with Casey following hot on their heels. Meanwhile, Margo’s found a way into the church and rescues Barbara, Henry, Emily and the still bleeding Paul. Ali and Mick stop in an alley and Mick turns to her and she realizes he’s repossessed his body back from James. Mick tells Ali he loves her, but he can’t force her to leave. He wants her to come with him on her own free will. Ali can’t answer before Casey arrives. Mick-as-James raises his gun to Casey, but Margo steps in and raises her own gun at Mick. Mick tells Alison goodbye and he runs into the street where he’s quickly struck by a large van. At the hospital, Paul recuperates from his gunshot wound and Emily tells him that she doesn’t need a child for them to be a family – she just needs him. Alison sees Mick into his room, and the nurse tells her Mick’s chances of survival don’t look good. Ali turns away from the room only to see Casey give her the cold shoulder and walk away from her with Margo and Tom. Ali’s left in the hospital corridor in her bloody wedding gown. Later, Casey goes looking for Alison and he finds her checking on Mick. Upset Casey goes but Ali follows him. She pleads with him to understand, but he can’t forgive her. Ali returns to hospital where Emily tries to comfort her but Ali has to take care of something. She goes to collect her things at Tom and Margo’s, when Casey shows up. She tells him she’s moving out and Casey wonders if she thought maybe he pushed her to get married. Ali assures him she wanted it just as much as him, but maybe it was too fast. There’s a thaw between them that’s halted by Ali’s cell phone ringing. A nurse tells her Mick’s taken a turn for the worse. At the hospital, Paul visits Mick and would pull out Mick’s ventilator but his conscious won’t let him – even when Mick, awake, motions for Paul to end his live. Emily’s proud of Paul when he tells her he didn’t kill Mick. Ali goes to Mick’s bedside. She tells him that she’s sorry she couldn’t save him. Mick flat lines. Ali kisses him and his heartbeat starts up again. Back at the Hughes’, Casey forlornly looks at the engagement ring Ali left behind. Meanwhile, Henry comforts Barbara at the Lakeview.
