Wow! What a finale!
It looks like Sarah was right about Simon after all. It appears he probably bilked Nora out of $100,000. He took her check for $100,000 (for his foundation, which is supposedly an investment that will return interest) and then blew her off - went out of town instead of escorting Nora to Justin's wedding. I can only hope she puts a stop payment on that check immediately!
It looked like we would finally get a happy ending on this show with Justin & Rebecca's wedding. The wedding took place locally on Malibu beach rather than in Hawaii due to storms & flight cancellations. Lots of drama up until the end about whether the wedding would actually take place. Justin had cold feet... he went to an AA meeting where he talked about how much pressure he was under and how he wasn't ready to be a husband or a father. Unbeknownst to Justin until after his confession: Rebecca's father David was at the meeting in the back row. Then Justin failed to show up for the rehearsal dinner - partly cold feet and partly because he was helping a boy who was hurt in an accident.
Drama with Kevin and Tommy. Tommy kidnapped his daughter Elizabeth to bring her from Seattle to the wedding. Well, he wasn't allowed to take her across state lines and he did anyway. Kevin catches wind of the fact that Tommy didn't have Julia's permission for the visit and calls her to tell her. She hops a flight immediately, but winds up allowing Elizabeth to attend at the end. But Tommy's still angry with Kevin.
At the end, we don't even know if Justin and Rebecca get married, because Kitty passes out while reading a poem on the beach before the vows take place.
I love the ee cummings poem she was reading:
i carry your heart with me
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
