I go away for a few weeks and look what happens! Roy and Hayley make it legal and Sophie and Sian are coming out.
As a fight brewed on the wedding train over who was responsible for Aadi’s brain damage, Claire blurted out that Sophie and Sian were not minding the kids because they were too busy kissing each other. Sally objects, saying that that’s the worst thing you can accuse someone of as Séan and Julie object to her objections. Sian and Sophie take off and Sally and Kevin storm off as well.
After it was arranged that the wedding party would get to the venue by Thomas the Tank Engine, Roy experienced the unfamiliar emotions of joy and delight. Unfortunately, Mary undid the coupling, leaving the bridal caboose to come undone.
So Becky and Fizz found a pump wagon on a branch line and so they are pumping furiously to get Hayley to the church civil wedding venue on time. Hayley, for her part tries to look as dignified as possible.
Eventually they do make it to the venue as Becky and Fizz are looking worse for wear but Hayley has come through unscathed.
As the wedding gets underway, Sian and Sophie are worried about what Claire’s outing is going to do to their relationship. Sophie worries that they’ll have to see less of each other to avoid rumours.
Hayley walks down the aisle as <strike>New Directions</strike> Sophie’s choir sings “Lean on Me”. Vows are read, rings are exchanged, and it’s all official.
Back on the street, Mary sits at the bar while Ciaran and Michelle flirt with each other. She’s regretting what she did, especially when Sean texted Michelle that it was a “train crash” but when he later texted
“full steam ahead” she was relieved.
At the reception, Roy gave a lovely toast to Hayley: “We stayed still and the world came round to meet us. The world can change its rules, its laws, and its opinions as frequently as it chooses. But I will remain standing beside you. That will not change.”
Trouble is still brewing between the Peacocks and the Websters over Claire’s accusations. And so as Roy and Hayley dance to the choir’s rendition of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day”, the Websters take off.
Back on the street Leanne and Simon see Ashley returning from the wedding, complaining that everyone thinks Claire is crazy and hurt Aadi. Ashley says when he does find the person who hurt him, he’s going to give him a smack. Simon is feeling extremely guilty right now.
Back at the wedding, Roy and Hayley drive off in the Woody.
At the Websters, Kevin tells Sophie that if there is anything she wants to tell him, she can. She thinks he means Sian but really he means Aadi and so Sophie gets angry and storms upstairs, only to come downstairs where she tells Kevin that what Claire said was true: she and Sian are together.
How will Kevin react? Find out tomorrow.
“Larry Hagman? Awesome!”
Ken told Emily that Susan, his ex who wrote that letter 50 years ago has had a son named Lawrence and he’s going to track him down.
Mary: “You know that saying, ‘Always a bridesmaid, never a bride’? Well, with Mother it was ‘Our Mary, she won’t even make bridesmaid?'”
