Nothing Can Stop Me
Demon Elf's shots continue to degrade Endora's pink force field, while he
threatens to kill her and Tabby. Tabby begs her daughter to power up, but
Endora fears she can't do it without her mother's powers. When the bubble
finally fizzles out, Tabby puts herself between Elfie and her daughter, but
he insists she's powerless. She counters that a mother's love is as powerful
as anything. "You want a bet," he says, and zaps her. Endora rushes to her
side as her eyes close and she slides into the chair. Elfi says it's too
late for Tabby, but not for Endora, who can still choose between coming to
the dark side and dying. "Nobody messes with my mother," she says and zaps
him. As he falls back, Tabby comes to and tells her, "Hold nothing back."
Endora's in pain and Tabby is crushed because she can't help, but Endora
tells her, "Just tell me you love me!" As Tabby repeats it, Endora's zaps
quadruple in strength and Elfie disappears, screaming that it's not over.
Endora drops to the couch, where she and Tabby embrace. Tabby tears up,
upset because the dark side will continue to come after them, while she has
no powers to protect her daughter. "You're my mummy: You'll never be a
burden," Endora cries.
convinced herself that Ethan's finding her at the Warf Cafe and his feeling
of connection to her are an act of Fate, Gert-resa is sure not even Juanita
can threaten their love. Little does she know, the wacko is hiding under a
nun's habit at the next table! Henchy wants to get out of town before the
bomb blows, but Juanita wants to be close enough to see the massacre. When
Juanita keep staring at Gert-resa, Henchy fears she's going to attract
attention, but Juanita is sure she knows the ugly duckling and watches as
Ethan makes his way to Gertie. Before he can reach her, Gert-resa wonders if
he's seen through her disguise and will sweep her off her feet. Then she
shakes her head, angry at herself for "giving into those silly hopes and
dreams" when they could put her family in danger. She jumps up and leaves
before Ethan can temp her, which Juanita finds suspicious.
Gertie listens, Ethan asks "Sister" Juanita if he's seen her, so Juanita
asks why he's looking for this woman when he's about to renew his vows. He
sits with her and, hoping to garner some Godly advice, recounts his story of
Theresa and her belief in Fate. After hearing about Theresa's death thanks
to some "crazy woman in Mexico", Juanita chuckles to herself about how much
worse the bomb will be. Then she tells him to open up to her, so Ethan waxes
on about Theresa's love and says only Gertie seems to understand his loss.
He asks her if it's "fair" to marry Gwen when he loves Theresa. The "nun"
refuses to tell him it's okay to "desert your wife at the altar," and
reminds him he's already married to Gwen. He agrees to keep his promise to
Gwen and sets off for church.
Ethan," Gertie sighs before coming out of hiding. When Juanita tells her
that he was looking for her, she says she has to let him go, "so he can move
on with his life." Henchy offers Gertie his seat and leaves her with
Juanita, who asks why Ethan was looking for her. "I can trust you, Sister,"
Gertie says and starts to tell all. Luckily, she catches herself, realizing
she can't even trust a nun, and just recounts the same story she told Ethan,
explaining she can empathize with his loss and admitting she made some
mistakes to win the man she loves but ultimately lost. Juanita realizes
Gertie reminds her of Theresa and flashes back to their meeting in Mexico.
"But it can't be," she thinks. "Theresa is dead." Gertie goes on to say
she's lost her faith in fate, and finally gives herself away to Juanita by
saying, "I loved this man my whole life and now I've lost him forever."
Juanita jumps in shock, making Gertie worry she's ill. Juanita covers, while
thinking to herself that she can't wait to kill Theresa personally. Then she
tells Gertie, "When life is most confusing, know there is only one answer to
life's problems: Go to the church, right now, and pray." Gertie balks at
going there during the wedding, but Juanita convinces her it's the thing to
do. As Gertie stumbles away, Juanita considers setting the bomb off early.
"You won't find God there," she chuckles. "Tonight you and your family will
the church, Pilar releases returned Antonio from her embrace and Father
Lonigan claims, "It's a miracle." Luis can't understand how Antonio survived
the explosion, but Sheridan explains it was "one of Alistair's tricks".
Antonio goes on to recount how he was taken on a different plane and then
kept hostage in Boston until Alistair's pay checks stopped coming. "For some
reason, Alistair wanted to keep me on ice," he shrugs. Ivy can't believe her
beau isn't getting the whole thing on video and sends Sam to get the
camcorder. Then the joy of the moment falters, because they have to tell
Antonio his little sister is dead. Pilar doesn't correct them as Sheridan
and Luis tell him about the sharks that ate Theresa. He hugs his mother, who
says, "It's all right" and cryptically promises to explain later. She asks
the Father for a thanksgiving mass for her son's return.
and Sheridan step aside to go gaga over the big news. When they embrace over
their joy, Fancy angrily squints her eyes, sure Sheridan will use this to
get Luis back. The new bride charges by Antonio, Pilar, Father Lonigan and
the rest and tears Sheridan out of Luis's arms, crying, "Damn you,
Sheridan!" Luis tells Fancy she has it all wrong, but she's pretty riled up.
She continues to rant until Luis says, "Sheridan was just saying she and
Antonio might get back together." Sheridan is all smiles, but Fancy isn't
convinced, so Antonio plants one on his girl to "prove it." Pilar can't
imagine how the day can get any better. Fancy apologizes, but Sheridan won't
hear it, saying, "I have been absolute bitch on wheels for months now."
Fancy can't deny that one! Sheridan says they'll start over with a long,
drunken lunch and Fancy agrees.
the bride's room, Gwen rolls her eyes at her mom, who's using her I-phone to
check responses to her personal add. After Beccs deletes one from an
underage hunk, Gwen grumbles that she should make herself useful, so they're
ready for the ceremony as soon as it's her turn. Rebecca can't imagine Ethan
isn't waiting anxiously for Gwen, who is the hottest bride of them all. That
leads to a monologue from Gwen about having beaten Theresa. "Just goes to
show you that deceitfulness, treachery and selfishness will always win out
in the end," Beccs coos, noting that Gwen and Theresa's secret war would
make a best seller. Gwen reminds her no one can ever know, before sending
her mom upstairs. Beccs grabs Sam's camcorder on the way out and watches it,
as she recalls making her sex video with Ron Jeremy.
reverie stops short when she sees that the camcorder caught her and Gwen
recounting all the evil deeds they've pulled off in order to beat Theresa!
"We destroyed Ivy's life too," Becc's voice says, just as Sam shows up. Of
course, he doesn't hear and figures it's just accidental recording. Beccs
says she'll rewind it for him and runs off. He follows her, demanding the
camera. "Why don't you come and get it, Big Boy," she offers seductively,
suggesting they make a sex tape. When he tries to get the camera from behind
her back, she plants one on him... and Ivy catches them kissing! She throws
Beccs back and, not needing an explanation from Sam, demands she keep her
hands off Sam. Beccs only has eyes for the camera, still trying to figure
out how to erase. Ivy says they need it to tape Ethan and Gwen's wedding,
but desperate Rebecca says, "Who cares about those stupid movies anyway."
Then she slips, letting Sam know she's trying to delete. As the music for
the wedding begins, Ivy threatens to use force to get it from her. "I could
take you with one hand tied behind my back," Beccs challenges. The ladies
struggle over the camera until it goes flying across the room. Beccs smiles,
hoping she's done enough damage.
Ethan returns for the wedding and, after a moment of
shock over Antonio, he tells Father Lonigan they can get started with the
wedding. The priest senses Ethan's lack of joy, but he insists he's happy,
but was hoping to find someone. Pressed for time, Father L asks someone to
get Gwen, instead of letting Ethan explain which "her" he was looking for.
Pilar asks Ethan if he found Gertie and is relieved to hear her daughter's
identity is still safe. She's thrilled that most of her kids are finding
happiness today, but feels guilty for Theresa's broken heart.
alone in the bride's room, Gwen calls her mother to find out what's going on
and when her ceremony starts, but gets Becc's voicemail. She leaves a
message, demanding an immediate callback, but then Sheridan comes to get
her. Gwen's surprised by her best friend's fantastic mood, so Sheridan
admits her love for Luis turned into an unhealthy obsession and that, "It
seems the man I love is Antonio." Gwen worries for her friend, but then
Sheridan catches her up. She's on cloud nine as she recounts how she gave
into returned Antonio's wish for another chance. Though no one has seen
Gertie, Beccs, Sam or Ivy, Sheridan says they must get the wedding under
way. "Nothing can stop me," Gwen sighs.
wonders about all the missing guests, so the priest again asks after his
lack of enthusiasm. He tells Ethan it's not too late for him to talk to
"this person," but Ethan insists Gwen deserves this moment and a forever of
happiness. As Ethan watches his bride walk toward him, he tells the priest
he's sure he's ready, but he's thinking, "If only I could have spoken with
Gertrude." He feels something's wrong, but can't put his finger on it. None
the wiser, Gwen is glowing, thinking of how she's won.

There's Something About Gertrude
the church basement, Ivy and Rebecca continue to battle for the camcorder. It
soon flies out of their hands and crashes to the floor. An annoyed Sam picks it
up and can't manage to turn it back on. He's sure that it's lost everything that
it's recorded. Rebecca is quite relieved, which makes Ivy and Sam wonder how she
can be so gleeful for destroying the recording of his daughter's marriage. She
plays stupid, but they're sure that there must have been something on there that
she didn't want anyone to see.
the dressing room, Kay has arrived to give Paloma her final touch ups before the
wedding. Unfortunately, Paloma walks into the wrong dressing room and spots Noah
and Miguel. They're only half-dressed. They explain this strange, pantsless
scene by saying that they had to switch pants. Paloma starts to go into panic
mode. They've just broken one of the oldest superstitions about weddings and she
is sure that they are doomed. Noah tries to calm her, but she is confident that
doom is on the way. Miguel and Kay add their voices, but Paloma threatens to
call off the wedding. Noah reaches a bit deeper and tells her that if there is
any couple who can overcome superstition, it will be them. He's sure that they
can still have a wonderful life together. He promises her that their wedding,
their honeymoon and their life together will be perfect.
waits at the altar as Gwen walks down the aisle. Although she's looking radiant,
all he can think about is Gertrude. Pilar watches, relieved that Theresa isn't
there. On cue, Gertrude arrives and a strange smile leaps onto Ethan's face.
Gwen notices and wants to kill Theresa. Ethan shocks everyone by announcing that
the ceremony needs to stop. Gwen is furious and Pilar is worried that Ethan may
have actually figured out the truth. Antonio sits in the audience, baffled as he
watches. Sheridan fills him in on everything. "Even blind, I could see this
coming," the priest thinks to himself. Ethan finds an excuse for Gwen: They
can't do this because their parents aren't there. The priest tries to hurry
things along again, so that he can get through the hectic wedding schedule.
Ethan offers to switch with Noah and Paloma while he sorts things out. Gwen
repeats to him that she can't wait to recommit to him.
is desperate to talk to Gertrude, although he still has no idea why. He starts
towards her, but Gwen stops him, worried that he will finally figure out who
Gertrude really is. She reminds him that they are supposed to be searching for their
parents. They split up to look. Gwen quickly finds Rebecca who fills her
daughter in on how all of their secrets were captured on Sam's camcorder. Gwen
starts to freak out but her mother assures her that it's all been taken care of
and the evidence has been destroyed. Gwen still isn't entirely relieved. She
explains the delay in her re-commitment ceremony and worries about Theresa
ruining things. Her mother is optimistic and reassures her: Soon she will be
back with Ethan and Juanita will arrive and wipe out Theresa and the rest of
dressing room, things have calmed down between Noah and Paloma. They're sure
that the love they feel is stronger than any superstition. Pilar interrupts and
explains what's just happened in the chapel. The couple eagerly rush out to
start their wedding. Noah doesn't think there could be any greater sign of good
luck than being able to marry her quicker.
and Sam wander the basement, sure that Rebecca must have been hiding something.
Sam is sure that they will never be able to figure it out. Ethan discovers them
and tells them that he couldn't get married without them there for the ceremony.
His parents wonder if that's the only reason. Ethan has to admit that there is
another reason for the delay: He feels drawn to Gertrude. Sam and Ivy are
perplexed. Ethan explains that something about her reminds him of Theresa. Ivy
grimaces; she can't imagine how he could be attracted to someone who looks like
Gertrude. Ethan doesn't understand it either, but something about her reminds
him of Theresa and he can't shake it. His parents tell him that he needs to let
Theresa go and move on. Ethan says that he loves Gwen, but not the way he loves
Theresa. Nonetheless, he will still re-commit to Gwen and just try to keep his
feelings for Gertrude in perspective. He goes upstairs to watch Noah and Paloma
get married. Sam and Ivy still don't understand this, or why Rebecca was so
desperate to keep what was on the camcorder from them.
the chapel, Pilar corners Gertrude and asks her why she's come back. She's come
to pray for a miracle that will bring Ethan back to her, she explains. A nun
told her to do this. Pilar still thinks that watching Ethan re-commit to Gwen
will be too much for her and tells her she should leave. Theresa suddenly spots
her brother Antonio and is shocked. Her mother explains that he is alive and
Theresa cries as her mother tells her what happened to him. She wishes that she
could embrace her brother but knows that she can't. It's painful but then she
notices that he is with Sheridan. Pilar explains that they are back together.
Theresa's eyes light up. She's sure that if their love can survive Antonio being
"dead", Ethan's love for her can too. This is proof that a miracle can happen
and she hopes that she gets hers.
wedding march starts and Luis walks Paloma down the aisle. Antonio is amazed to
see how his little sister has grown into a woman. He only wishes that Theresa
could be there too. His mother tells him that miracles can happen. If he can
come back from the dead, maybe his sister can too... Gertrude catches his eye
and he can't shake the feeling that she is familiar. His mother stops him from
asking too many questions and focuses him on the wedding. She only wishes that
her sister could have lived to see the girl she raised be married. Ivy and Sam
arrive as the wedding winds down. He's amazed to see that his son has finally
settled down. Paloma has been a good influence on him and steered him away from
his wild ways. Ivy tells him that true love changes everyone.
Gertrude trade stares throughout the ceremony. He still can't stop feeling drawn
to her but tries to rationalize it, assuming that he is only reminded of
Theresa. Pilar catches her daughter staring and tells her once again to stop,
reminding her of what could happen if her true identity is revealed. Theresa
just wants her dream of being a family with Ethan. Pilar is sure she can find
another man. Theresa admits that she loved Fox and Jared, but it wasn't the
same. Noah and Paloma are pronounced man and wife. As they kiss, everyone claps
until the church begins to shake. It's an earthquake!

Rock n Roll Wedding
and her daughter are trying to get Fluffy packed up so they can get out of
town before destruction hits and go hang out with Precious. When an
earthquake hits, the cat jumps right into the cage. Tabby thinks the demons
in the basement are stirring things up, but then realizes, "It's the
beginning of the end of Harmony!" Endora isn't so sure, especially after
things calm down, but Tabby remains dead set on getting out of town ASAP.
Unfortunately, they're locked in! Tabby fears they've missed their window of
opportunity, so Endora suggests they look to the magic bowl. Of course, it
doesn't work for Tabby anymore, since she's not a witch, so Endora gets it
bubbling. When she asks what trouble is afoot, the bowl erupts in fire. Once
the fire's out, they can see Mt. Harmon, a local volcano that has awoken
after a long, inactive sleep. When Endora asks who's behind it all, the bowl
shows a man with the initials J.Z. sitting behind a desk, de-pluming a dead
peacock. She efforts to find a way out, while her mother bemoans Harmony's
end, fearing it will end up like Pompeii.
the church, Gwen is very upset her special day is being further postponed by
the quaking. She and Beccs also fear it may cause another tsunami, but Gwen
really loses it when Ethan runs to Gert-resa's rescue. She begins to fear
Ethan may end up with Theresa after all. When the power goes out, Father
Lonigan tells everyone to trust in the Lord and the shaking stops. Paloma is
relieved, but Pilar feels like it's the end of the world, while Luis and
Fancy and Gertie and Ethan reminisce about the tsunami. Ethan promises
Gert-resa he'll protect her, but then he and Gwen prepare to get the
ceremony back under way. Theresa prepares to lose Ethan forever, while Gwen
fears he will choose Gertie over her without even knowing she's Theresa and
Little E watches from the pew, wishing he could stop the ceremony before
it's too late.
at the altar, Father L asks Ethan about that conversation he wanted to have
before the ceremony, but Ethan is resigned to his fate, insisting he must
accept he's lost someone forever. As Gwen walks down the aisle, her fears
diminish. She's sure she's finally won the battle. Ethan knows he must move
on, while Gert-resa feels she's watching her own funeral. There's lots of
other mumbled thoughts about the union, until an upset Gert-resa can't wait
anymore and leaves. Beccs gloats over the win, as Ethan also notices the
early exit. Then Ethan and Gwen say their vows, but Ethan knows he would do
anything to be up there with Theresa instead. Ivy thinks her son is doing
the right thing. Sam hopes she's right, but Little E knows only Theresa can
make Ethan happy. When Little E learns about Sam's video camera breaking, he
asks to take a look at it. Beccs is grateful she broke it, so she and Gwen
can get away with all their nasty acts, but then Little E fixes the camera
Juanita feels the quake at the wharf, she's thrilled, sure her bomb has gone
off and if her enemies aren't dead, they soon will be. She's less than
thrilled when there's no sign of pandemonium, especially when she gets
closer and realizes the rumbling was nothing but a coincidence. She tries to
detonate the bomb again, to no avail, and realizing the remote isn't
working, heads to the church to make it happen in time. When she arrives,
she finds Gert-resa saying a prayer, hoping for a way to get Ethan back, but
Juanita is focused only on setting that bomb off. Gertie recognizes the
"nun" from their earlier chat and follows her to the basement, hoping she'll
have advice for her about winning Ethan back. Instead of finding the nun,
however, she finds the bomb! Gert-resa begs for the nun's help. Instead,
Juanita pulls a gun, revealing herself and calling Theresa out. Gert-resa
rips off her wig, prepared to fight her family's archenemy.
