Sonny and Will know not and would like to adopt the baby. Victor warns they are making a monumental mistake … Amazingly stylish Kate assures irritated Abe this day will be good PR for the mayor’s office. She is irritated the paper is only sending an intern since the wedding was of more interest. Abe and Kate do agree on the fact that it is harder to say Justin and Kayla than Steve and Kayla … Kayla gets a call from son Joey and is relieved he is wishing her the best … Hope states Steve was about to profess his continued love for Kayla but then Justin proposed. Justin digests. Hope confirms Kayla is unaware of the detail. He whispers if she was it would be a game changer …

Will stops the escalation and suggests they wait and see what Allie decides … John and Marlena arrive for the key ceremony. Kate hopes Vivian will stay away in the slammer and asks what John will say. How the two heroes saved Salem from Orpheus.

Justin goes in another direction … Will goes to get his vows ready and Sonny wonders why Justin is taking so long. Speak of the devil! Sonny senses something is the matter … Kate is exasperated when Steve arrives in his leather jacket. Hope takes him aside to update him on Justin knowing he still cares for Kayla. Does Kayla not also deserve to know?
Kayla is ready in her pretty dress. She gushes Justin wrote a song for her. Jen agrees he is sweet and presents her with a blue topaz bracelet to wear for something old, borrowed and blue. It was a gift from Adrienne. She now babbles about whether she has second thoughts. Here comes smiling Jack. Kayla confesses to them both she is having some doubts … Kate stops Steve and Hope from continuing their conversation and takes them to the podium. Abe eloquently praises the pair for their decades of dedicated service to the Salem community. Steve remembers his romantic vows with Kayla when they were young. He does not hear when Abe presents him with the key to the city … Justin tells Sonny and Victor that he placed an identical bouquet from their first wedding at Adrienne’s gravestone. Victor is not surprised he looks so upset. Justin remembers the years of drama and joy. Victor notes this might not be so grand but happiness awaits and he wants a drink! Sonny pours and they toast after the patriarch paraphrases Socrates. OPA! But not quite …
Steve teases Hope they can use their keys to get out of jail one day. Kate is sorry to say there was no budget for the reception. Marlena suggests a celebration at the Brady pub. John nods. Steve has the time and sadly says so … Kayla explains she is already aware that one can feel alone in a marriage. With Steve life was like a roller coaster whereas Justin is reliable.

Steve denies it so John suggests he do something for he is a man of action …. The bride and her shoes intact emerge with Jen. Jack’s painful poem ends with the phrase “it might have been.” Justin remembers Jen’s words about Kayla not knowing Steve wants her back. Kayla sweetly smiles and takes his hand …
Marlena agrees with John that Steve is a man of action. She adds he will have to live for life with his decision. Food for thought … Kate gushes they have got over 237,000 likes now! The Kardashians follow her and reposted Abe’s heartfelt speech … Will begins … Steve sighs he cannot handle watching Justin with Kayla living happily ever after.
