Cory: You did this?
Bridget: Who are you? Why did you do this to my picture?
Two police officers enter, and Bridget directs them to Michele.
Bridget: Officer. Arrest her. She broke in here and ransacked the living room.
Officer #1: Did you do this?
Officer #2: We gotta take you to the station. You’re under arrest.
Officer #2 reads Michele her Miranda rights as Bridget turns to Cory.
Bridget: I’m getting that feeling again.
Cory: The same one you got before.
Donna: Look at them.
Vicky: I’m so happy for my son.
Donna: Those two have been through so much in their lives, and now they’re married. It’s amazing. People can get through anything.
Vicky: Look, don’t mention it.
Donna: Mention what?
Vicky: You’re about to make a Jake reference.
Donna: I simply said people can get through anything. If it applies to you and Jake, then so be it.
Vicky: Oh Donna whatever.
Donna: While we’re on the subject…
Donna: I told you to tell Jake the truth about Lindsay, but you decided to keep it to yourself.
Vicky: I did what I had to do to protect my family. If he doesn’t understand that, then I don’t know what else to say.
Vicky’s cell phone vibrates with a text message, and it gets Vicky’s attention.
Vicky: What’s this? From Bridget.
Vicky reads the text message that says “Someone broke into the house. They caught the person who did it. Meet us at the police station.”
Vicky: Oh my God.
Donna: What is it?
Vicky: Someone broke into the house.
Donna: Oh no.
Vicky: I’m going to the police station.
Jake: So how long did it take you to give your blessing to this wedding?
Cass: It took me a little while, but I saw how happy my daughter was, and I couldn’t deny her that.
Jake: I mean, I...I understand. I’m gonna give a hard time to any man who wants marry any of my girls.
Cass: Any father would, but you gotta be careful not to alienate your daughters.
Jake: Of course not. Bridget and Lindsay are two strong minded girls.
Cass: So you’ve...talked to Lindsay?
Jake: I did, right before the wedding.
Cass: What about my sister?
Jake: I...haven’t spoken to her.
Cass: Stacey didn’t want hurt anybody. Not you, not Vicky, not anyone.
Jake: They had no right to keep the truth from me, though, Cass.
Cass: Look I get that you’re angry about it, but you need to try to look at it from another point of view. You had your family, and Stacey didn’t want to disrupt it.
Vicky walks up to them with Donna.
Cass: Hey Vicky.
Vicky: Cass hi. Jake we gotta get to the police station.
Jake: What? Is everything alright?
Vicky: Bridget texted me. Someone broke into our house. They have the perpetrator at the station.
Donna: I’ll go tell Michael.
Michael: Hey bro.
Michael: Mind if I sit?
John: Not at all, especially since you’ve pulled out the chair.
Michael: I see you haven’t lost your sense of humor after all these years.
John: I’m gonna need it.
Michael: I heard Sharlene got released today. That’s great news isn’t it?
Sharlene: Yes it sure is!
Michael: Hey, Sharlene.
Michael and Sharlene hug, but Michael pulls away as he slightly winces his face.
Michael: How many have you had?
Sharlene: A few. It’s a celebration isn’t it? My niece and your grandson got married, and I got to see it, but do you wanna know what happened on our way here?
John gets up.
Sharlene raises her voice and draws everyone’s attention, particularly Mitch and Felicia’s.
Sharlene: All three of us rode to the wedding together. John, me, and his homewrecking slut!
Felicia: You watch your mouth!
Sharlene: You shut up! You should know what it’s like to be drunk!
Felicia: I get that you’ve been through hell, because I am not gonna sit here and let you embarrass me.
Sharlene: You’re an embarrassment and a disgrace!
Felicia: John you need to do something about your wife.
Mitch gets between Felicia and Sharlene as Gregory comes along.
Mitch: That’s enough.
Gregory: Come on mom. Let me take you home.
Sharlene: I’m not going anywhere until I’m ready! Attention everybody! My husband told me he’s not sleeping with Felicia. If any of you know the real truth, you need to tell me now!
Jake: Sharlene seems like she’s had one too many.
Vicky: Yeah I can see that.
Kirkland: What’s up mom?
Vicky: I got a text from Bridget.
Jake: Someone broke in the house.
Kirkland: What? Someone must known you were gone.
Charlie: Oh no. I’m gonna get my mom. I’ve never seen Aunt Sharlene like that. Vicky let us know if there’s anything we can do.
Vicky: You stay here and...enjoy your wedding day.
Kirkland: Do they know who did it?
Vicky: Bridget said yes. They’re on their way to the station.
Kirkland: Go ahead. Let us know what happens.
Jake: We will.
Rachel: I’m glad we found you.
Vicky: Oh my God. Carl? You look great. When did you get out?
Carl: I’ll tell you another time, but there’s something we have to tell you.
Rachel: It’s about your daughter.
Vicky: We already know.
Rachel and Carl look at Jake and Vicky with confusion.
As the officers are escorting a handcuffed Michele to the door, Bridget confronts her.
Bridget: Wait a minute. There’s something...so familiar about you.
Michele: Of course there is. If you haven’t figured it out by now, then you really are stupid.

AT TOPS…Rachel and Carl are shocked at what Jake and Vicky tell them.
Rachel: You know?
Jake: Yeah Bridget said that someone broke into the house, and they’re at the police station.
Vicky: We’ve gotta go. I’m getting worried about Bridget.
Rachel: We’ll go with you.
As the four of them enter the elevator and subsequently leave, Frankie goes over to Sharlene.
Frankie: Aunt Sharlene, this isn’t the time.
Sharlene: It’s the perfect time Frankie. I’m exposing to the whole town the cheater that my husband really is. I want a divorce!
Frankie: Gregory can you take your mom home please?
Gregory: Of course.
Sharlene: I’ll get myself home.
Frankie: Not when you’re drunk. You shouldn’t be alone right now. Please take your mother home Gregory.
As Gregory escorts Sharlene to the elevator so they can leave, Frankie turns to John.
Frankie: What happened?
John: I don’t know Frankie, but whatever it is, it’s between me and Sharlene. Let us work it out.
Frankie then turns to Felicia.
Frankie: Is it true? Are you having an affair with John again?
Felicia: I’m so tired of having to explain myself to everyone.
Mitch: She’s not.
Frankie: I sure hope that’s true. Hasn’t my aunt been through enough?
Frankie walks past Donna and Michael.
Donna: Michael, we gotta go to the police station. Something’s happened to Bridget.
Michael: Where are Jake and Victoria?
Donna: They’ve already gone down there.
Meanwhile, Kirkland and Charlie sit at their table.
Kirkland: Wow. What a day this has been.
Charlie: I hope Aunt Sharlene’s gonna be okay.
Kirkland: I’m sure she will.
Charlie: Ever since we got to the reception it’s been one thing after another.
Kirkland: Makes you wonder what other surprises are gonna happen.
Charlie: I hope your mom and Jake find out what happened at their house.
Toni: Why did you break in the McKinnon’s house?
Michele: I didn’t break in. I got the key.
Toni: There were signs of forced entry. Is there something you wanted in there?
Michele: I’m not gonna tell you.
Toni: You know, you’re in a lot of trouble. Breaking and entering and vandalism are very serious. You still haven’t told me your name.
Michele: I’m not telling you that.
Toni: You’re not being very cooperative and that’s not helping your case young lady.
Michele: Why don’t you call my parents?
Toni: Who are they?
Bridget and Cory walk in...
Toni: Bridget, Cory. Are you guys here to give a statement?
Bridget: Yes. She told us that she broke in.
Toni: You saw her in the house?
Cory: Yeah we did. It was totally trashed.
Bridget: My parents are on their way.
Toni turns to Michele, and at this point, still nobody knows that this girl that ransacked the McKinnons is Michele.
Toni: So you care to stop playing games and tell us who you are?
Michele pauses and continues…
Michele: I’ll tell you when my parents get here.
This statement catches Bridget’s attention, and Bridget flashes back to an earlier moments of the day…
Bridget shows (Cory) her picture with the broken glass portrait.
Bridget: Look at this. My picture.
Bridget: I got that feeling again.
Cory: The one you were talking about at the church?
Bridget: Yep. It’s like I feel Michele. Almost as if she’s here.
Back to the present, Bridget shakes her head in apparent disbelief…
Cory: Bridget what’s wrong?
Bridget: No...this can’t be.
She then goes up to Michele, whom she still does not know that she’s Michele.
Bridget: Did my great-grandfather send you? You aren’t...you...aren’t who I think you are.
Michele: Is that right? Who am I then?
Bridget: No...no it isn’t true. You’re an impostor. Reginald changed your face.
Toni: Bridget what are you saying?
Bridget: She’s impersonating my dead sister Michele.
Michele: There’s only one problem with that. I’m very much alive.
Bridget: You’re a fake!
Jake, Vicky, Rachel and Carl walk in, and Cory is shocked.
Cory: Mom? Dad? Dad when did you…?
Rachel: I’ll tell you later son I promise.
Rachel notices Michele, and Toni approaches Jake and Vicky.
Toni: Jake, Vicky, this is the girl who broke into your house.
Bridget: She’s impersonating Michele. I think grandpa Reginald sent her.
Vicky: What? Michele? She’s dead.
Bridget: She’s insinuating that she’s my sister.
Vicky: How dare you say that you’re Michele? She would never break in anyone’s house! I say we press charges.
Jake: Why did you do it?
Michele: I didn’t break in dad. I got the key from underneath the middle flower pot outside.
Vicky: How did you know where it was? Did Reginald tell you?
Michele: No. He doesn’t even know about it.
Jake: Michele and Bridget were identical. You don’t look anything like her. There’s no way you’re my daughter. Michele died in a car accident.
Michele: Mr. and Mrs. Hutchins. Please tell them.
Rachel: Jake, Vicky, I have something to tell you both.
Rachel gives them the paper, and Jake and Vicky both read it over.
Vicky: No...I’m with Bridget. This is Reginald’s doing!
Carl: Jake the results from your paternity test with Steven was cross referenced with Michele’s DNA.
Rachel: We stopped in Oakdale and Dr. Hughes ran the test. It came back positive. This girl is your daughter.
Jake, Vicky, Bridget, Cory and Toni are all shocked.
