Something Old, Something New, Part 2
Penny brainstorms ways to promote Connie's wedding planning business and one of her schemes dramatically backfires. Meanwhile, Matthew and Emily investigate a woman who may be trying to scam Jacques Henri.
At Whit's End, Connie Kendall and Wooton Bassett are on the air with Candid Conversations with Connie. They had planned to announce that they weren't actually getting married. They receive a call from Robert Mitchell (Mitch), who congratulates them, and tells them that he's getting married too. This surprises Connie, but she congratulates him on the air and then goes to a commercial.
Later Penny Wise makes tea for Connie and tries to comfort Connie who is really confused about whether she's happy to see him or not. They discuss Connie's former engagement, and Connie explains that she wonders if she made a mistake breaking it of with him. She plans to meet Mitch in an hour at Hal's Diner.
At Hal's Diner, Connie meets up with Mitch. She explains to him the situation with the virus and that she's not really getting married. Mitch tells Connie about his fiance, Maureen. Connie invites Mitch to come to Whit's End later for the party, and that they can turn the party into a celebration for Mitch's engagement. Mitch agrees to the plan.
Meanwhile, Matthew Parker uses a walkie talkie to tell Emily Jones that "Cute guy (CG)" is with "Connie Kendall (CK)". He sees them leave in separate directions and they agree to meet up at Whit's End.
At Whit's End, Connie is greeted by John Whittaker (Whit). He asks her if she's ok with the news about Mitch. She insists that she's fine. Wooton comes in with a tofu pig to barbecue and says its for the party. Penny comes in and asks about Mitch and his fiance. Connie expresses that his fiance isn't right for him. Penny says that she's set on not liking her. Whit is hesitant on the idea, but Connie insists that it will be fine as log as everyone is their normal friendly self. Emily comes in, and talks to Penny saying that Connie was seen with the "CG". She's sure that the "CG" is connected with the "Mystery Woman (MW)" but their not sure how. Matthew comes in and says that the CG and the MW are walking in the park and stopped at a park bench. Emily, Matthew and Penny run out to spy on the couple.
The trio finds the "CG" and "MW" talking to Eugene Meltsner. They see that their headed towards Whit's End. The trio take the entrance into the kitchen. Mitch and Maureen enter Whit's End and are welcomed by Whit. In the Kitchen, the trio run into Wooton. They have Wooton look through the kitchen window to see who came in with Eugene. Wooton identifies "CG" and "MW" As Mitch and his fiance Maureen. This confuses them because MW was in the Gallery the other day under the name Jessica Brown. Wooton agrees that that is remarkably peculiar. A moment later Eugene enters the kitchen, and the gang takes him up to Whit's office to explain the peculiar situation.
Eugene finds everything their saying hard to believe. He does a record search on Jessica Brown and find her in the files. They are surprised and astonished to find out that she's a criminal. Penny calls Jacques Henri right away. Jacques said he would contact the authorities right away. They decide to look for an opportunity to tell Connie and Whit.
Eugene, Penny, and Wooton go down and talk to Maureen and Mitch and Whit and Connie. They try to act normal, but don't pull that off very well. They ask Connie to go into the kitchen. Mitch receives a phone call and goes to the KYDS Radio studio to answer it. Connie is told about Maureen in the kitchen. Connie doesn't believe what she is hearing. She knows that Mitch wouldn't marry a felon knowingly. She goes to talk to Mitch about it. When she asks him about her criminal record, he tells her that she's also in the FBI. She poses as Jessica Brown to draw out art scams. Both of them are undercover to investigate Henri's gallery to see if their part of a scam chain. The phone call he just received cleared him since Henri called the local FBI office about to arrest Maureen/Jessica Brown. Connie tells Mitch that she's happy for him because he's happy.
Downstairs, Jacques Henri enters Whit's End, shouting about a citizen's arrest. He tells Penny, Wooton, and Eugene that he called the FBI, but they gave him the complete run around. Eugene grabs a hold of her to make a citizen's arrest, and instead Maureen flips Eugene. Mitch tells Maureen that Henri has been cleared and Connie explains to everyone the truth about Maureen.
After the party Whit and Connie discuss regrets. Whit comments that it's natural to wonder about our decisions but healthy only if we learn from them in the future otherwise it's dangerous because you could get lost in a game of "What if". Whit tells her that he's glad that God kept her in Odyssey with him because his life would feel a lot emptier without her.
Connie returns to her apartment to find that Mitch brought her yellow tulips. Penny asks what they mean, and Connie tells her that they mean "Good bye".
