Victoria assured Ashland that their company would be safe, and he sensed that she had something up her sleeve. Victoria understood why Ashland hid his past, and she promised that nothing would stop them from getting married. Nick went to Tuscany uninvited in hopes of reconciling with Victoria. He was shocked to find out Nikki and Victor both supported Victoria marrying Ashland. Nick’s efforts to smooth things over with Victoria didn’t work. She wouldn’t forgive him, but she said he could attend the wedding since their parents wanted him to be there. Reed let Victoria know he couldn’t make it to the wedding. Victor didn’t want Nick to find out about Ashland’s latest secret. Billy brought Gaines to the palazzo and hid him in a room. Billy shot down Gaines’ idea to reveal Ashland’s secret at the wedding in front of everyone. Billy didn’t want to do anything to hurt Victoria more than necessary. Billy looked for Victoria so he could take her to Gaines. He found Ashland having a coughing fit. Ashland refused Billy’s offer to go get Nate. Victor found Billy and Ashland together and threw Billy out of the room. Victor warned Ashland that Gaines was on the flight manifest on Billy’s chartered plane.

Nick told Phyllis that he didn’t want to cast a shadow over the wedding by staying if Victoria didn’t want him there. Nate struggled with writing a best man toast, since he hadn’t known Ashland very long. Elena helped him. When Billy went back to the room to get Gaines, he wasn’t there.
