Marley returned to her and Grant's table, where he'd struck up conversation with Kevin.

"You can call me Uncle Grant, if you like," Grant teased his former attorney fraternally.

"My last uncle was suffocated with a pillow. By my father."

"Duly noted," Grant paled a little himself and chomped down on an unlit cigar.

Kevin smiled and stood, "Good to see you again, Marley," walking away to refresh his drink.

Grant was about to signal for a wandering waiter to do the same, when he caught the odd expression on Marley's face, and lowered his arm. "What's wrong?"

"Lorna is pregnant," Marley said, her mind swirling with so many emotions that her voice managed to come out utterly neutral.

"What makes you think that?"

"I just saw her in the bathroom, turning about seven distinct shades of green."

"Maybe she just has the flu."

"People with the flu, stay home. People trying to hide a pregnancy, discretely upchuck in the bathroom."

"Well, well, well...." Grant leaned back in his chair. "I'm amazed Jamie isn't shouting the big news from the rooftops. And even if they are keeping it quiet from the general public for now, I'd assume Kirkland would have told me..."

"Kirkland doesn't know. Neither does Jamie."


Marley struggles to reconcile her past with Jamie to her present with Grant, GQ drops a bombshell on Steven, Alice's family gangs up on Spencer, Lila calls Matt out on his behavior, Lorna is forced to continue her lie, and the Harrison wedding comes to a most soapy end.

Grant will hold Spencer back from physically defending his bride. Kevin & Grant will accompany Alice to the precinct (as her legal team) with Jen, Marley & Kirkland in tow.
Stephen (who I assume is at the wedding WITH Sarah?) is going to confront Sarah with what he learned from GQ -- he will not listen to her protestations of "how she has changed". He will be the first to turn on the group, and give testimony as to what happened with Gregory's death. This will be a problem for him in his relationship with Jamie-- it will put Jamie in the uncomfortable position of having his son testifying against his stepmother.
The Right-to-Die issue will become a campaign issue in the mayoral race because of Grant's involvement with Alice (even though it would come under state or federal jurisdiction rather than municipal).
All in all, hilarity will NOT ensue, but gripping drama will......
