reunion of C.C. and Sophia
In the decorated gardens, C.C. Capwell goes for a walk alone. He stops close to an old fountain (not without reminding us of the one that sat enthroned in the centre of the atrium, in the first version of the villa), throwing coins into it. The leader of the Capwell clan appears for the first time of his life ready to lower arms, to see the rest of hope which he still has. And if he throws a coin into the fountain, it is indeed so that his most expensive wish comes true: that everything appears like it was before...
Sophia, in a formal dress green and golden, having noticed him that moment, slowly goes up to him. Sophia who had C.C. Capwell at her fingertips, is capable of reading him and learns the deep distress which plagues him. Teasing him at first, she declares that to give in facing events is either not in his nature, or in his habits. C.C. admits this and confesses that he will have to learn, in despair of Sophia.
Sophia then questions C.C. on what he is searching for in the fountain. C.C. is allowed to go and dares to tell Sophia that he regrets not being able to take back the time, these moments when everything was in order, where she and he lived for each other. Today, C.C. admits that in spite of all their efforts, they could not stay together. Then what's the point to hope! Sophia does not share his point of view: she is there to manifest all her love, which this love has never stopped existing in spite of their disputes, other meetings. Sophia explains to him that she regrets all this lost time, all these moments when they were not together, and that today she is ready to become his wife again. Filled up with joy, C.C. kisses Sophia, by wishing her a good return home, before kissing her, so loving just like the first day.
facing her future
Sitting on the bed in her room, Julia is reading the instructions of pregnancy test. She is obliged to hide them when Mason comes out of the bathroom. Fortunately, the entrance of Gracie comes to create diversion. On the point of giving birth, she comes to announce to Mason and Julia of her fears about her baby to come. She would like for Julia and Mason to adopt her. If Julia does not object to this idea, she explains to Gracie that the decision must come from Mason and from her. She cannot only choose them, because it would not be fair.
Conscious that she will not be able to give her baby the same life as the one that Samantha Capwell knows, Gracie hates herself for it. She would like to give her child better, and she is not either rich, or clever. Julia, who understands fears the anxiety of the future mother, tries to comfort her with the biggest of secrets: love is the only and true wealth which counts, the only wealth to be given as pleasure to a child, a loved child does not need anything else.
Terrified at the idea of staying alone, Gracie would like that Mason and Julia stay with her. It is while she begins feeling the first pains, sign of the imminent arrival of her child. Gracie shouts out her pain while, facing her, Julia follows her tirelessly, explaining to Gracie that she has already used this trick and that, this time, it will not work. Julia tries to reassure Gracie so much that herself, by saying that if it was true, she has no reason to shout, since there is a person here who knows what to do in such a situation. Then, realising that Gracie is not playing, Julia rushes for the door and shouts for help, and informs Mason of the emergency of this situation.
Facing the bed on which Gracie is lying on, Mason and (he breathes in a bag), Julia gives advice on breathing to each of them. Julia recommends to Gracie to only indicate when the pain is there. Mason, he, judges that Gracie is big enough to indicate what she feels. Exceeded, Julia recommends him to be silent. After all, he does not know about it, because he is only a man. Mason then gets up and, by seeing that the baby approaches, faints.
After the birth of the baby, everybody is present in the room. Samantha is sitting down beside Gracie, happy with her baby in her arms. Samantha tries to understand the reasons why Gracie does not want to keep her baby. Logically, she ends up asking Gracie why she does not give it to them: they would look after the baby. According to the advice from Gracie, Samantha pleads with her mother who tells her to see her father; Samantha then pleads with Mason who, if he does not answer, looks at his daughter as though he gave in to this fad.
and Reese : first step towards reconciliation
It is on the beach that Reese comes to join Jodie, a rose in his hand. Reese comes not to apologise, but to make Jodie understand that he made the biggest error of his existence by letting his wife leave his life. He still loves her as much as the first day and he wants them to return to their former life. Reese, having kissed her, asks with arrogance if Micah has already kissed her in that way. Jodie pushes him back; she does not support this behaviour. However, she keeps the door open to Reese so that he could achieve the dream: recover her.
Warren joins his wife-to-be in the room. B.J. is radiant, she does not succeed in thinking that she is going to become his wife. Aware of the history, Warren tries to find out if she does not regret that they moved so quickly. B.J. answers not: besides, does she show the face of anybody who is sad? Certainly not. Warren gives the place up then in tradition: Jodie and Lily are going to come to help him to get ready...
In a room, Andi also finishes getting ready. Having dressed in a uniform of a cleaning woman, she ends up with a brown wig. Then, she takes out a rifle in what would have a package of flowers.
In some minutes of celebration, Lily comes to join Reese who waits for the arrival of his daughter. B.J. goes up. With her loving father, he tells his daughter that if she wants to run away, he will help her. She is not obliged to go up to the hotel if she has doubts. B.J. reassures him; nothing in the world will be able to prevent her from becoming the wife of Warren Lockridge. That was the answer he wanted to hear.
and Julia : and now four
Mason is beside the baby, obviously happy, the baby holding Mason's finger in his hand. Acting as a true father, Mason lavishes this moment, and speaks to him about women and says that the only difference between men and women, is that the men are stronger physically. Smiling, Julia enters the room. She makes the remark which perhaps he exaggerates by praising the physical force of the men, and Mason fills his chest to show that this is not the case. Then Julia takes him by the hand to a table where they are going to be able to measure their respective force in the course of arm wrestling. Mason is surprised to think that she wants to measure him. While he begins to discount this, Mason has no time to say three before Julia announces that she is pregnant and she wins the part of arm wrestling. Mason remains speechless. Julia asks him to say nothing, because this instant is perfect. Happy with the news, they kiss each other tenderly.
and Warren : a wedding as a picture of the end
Sawyer is the best man who drives the guests to their place: Micah and Aurora, Kelly and McCabe, Rosa and Ted are found between the others C.C. and Sophia, and Minx...
Warren and his father are quickly joined by the priest. Warren does not seem very comfortable to be there, in front of the whole city of Santa Barbara. He tells Lionel that he always dreamt to get married in Las Vegas. Lionel tries to give him courage: when he will see his delightful future wife, he will forget all the doubts he has. Warren suggests then beginning with holiday, drinking and eating, then getting married fast, on the sly.
Lily then gets ahead in the central path, under the look filled with pride from Gina, covered with a silky carpet. She passes under an ark of flowers when the sound of violins is heard. On the arm of her father, B.J. follows the way along the beach, before joining her brother. And while the wedding march is played, B.J. advances towards her destiny. Warren looks at her, eyes were filled with love.
Before joining Jodie, Reese entrusts the hand of B.J. to Warren. Then the priest asks them if they promise to love each other and to feel pride throughout their life, what Warren and B.J. promise. Then, the priest signals that they are going to pronounce their wishes, ones they wrote themselves. The priest turns to Warren. Under the anxious look of all, Warren remains immobile, rigid as a stake, unable to pronounce the slightest word. Jodie wonders. Minx says that she expected this. They murmur even that he is going to leave. B.J. questions him. Lionel also tries to bring his son back to reality, by murmuring to him to pronounce some words. Worried, B.J. asks him if he wants to get married to her, he answers a yes honest and frank. Eyes to eyes, Warren pronounces the wishes, by ending with«Me Warren, I take you B.J. to be my wife». Then it is B.J.'s turn «Oh Warren, our meeting is a miracle».
Lionel gives alliance to his son so that he slips the ring on the finger of B.J.. Lily made also. And B.J., under the words of the priest, makes the same alliance with Warren's finger. Here is husband and wife. Warren can finally kiss his wife. Under the applauses of the guests, Mister and Mrs Lockridge take off up the white carpet, while a window opens to let some housemaids arrive on the balcony.
The reception of the guests is in full swing, sheltered from the wind under a gazebo at the edge of gardens. Andi, from the balcony, notices the stage. Out of the way Jodie and Reese talk together. Reese does not come back there knowing that B.J. is married and that the next day she will have a child, making Jodie a grandmother. Jodie apologises then for everything that has taken place since she confessed that B.J. was not her daughter. Reese declares that it is unimportant: Neither B.J. is his daughter, their daughter, and neither anything nor anybody will be able ever to change it.
Warren invites B.J. for the first dance. They set up in the centre of the gazebo under the look of all guests. And surprised, for the first time of the series, Minx shows her weaknesses and confesses to Lionel, Gina and to his horseman whom she is going to start to mourn and that she nearly died when Warren hesitated at the time of pronouncing the wishes. Lionel retorts that, him, he kept confidence, because he knows that Warren loves B.J. just as much that Gina loves him. For proof of this love, Lionel kisses Gina.
Reese then comes to take B.J. to Warren while Jodie invites Warren to finish the dance. Then, Lionel invites Gina, Ted invites Lily, McCabe invites Kelly. Micah looks at Jodie and at Reese with a smile of someone that has just lost and that admits his defeat. It is while McCabe points out Andi on the balcony. He moves away with Kelly and orders her not to move. Before leaving, Kelly, tenderly, he asks her to pay attention.
On the balcony, Andi positions first the viewfinder of his rifle. Meanwhile, McCabe takes up four-four the staircases of the hotel. Andi aims then at Gina, then at Reese and at Jodie. It is at this moment that Connor comes into sight behind her and tears his from the weapon. After a short battle, Connor seizes Andi and makes him leave the balcony.
Under the gazebo, Lionel claims the attention of all guests to toast the newly-weds. Everybody raises their glasses in favour of the Lockridge son and of his young wife, before Lionel invites Gina to dance, for a long life for the two. Then, in front of the open window facing the ocean, the guests are dancing.
The series ends with the majority of the characters : honour is safe, since C.C. and Sophia met and confessed their love, Jodie and Reese make peace, and even Minx seems to soften in front of her new daughter-in-law...
