Previously on Cedar Cove...
Didn't Paul tell you? He's leaving.
I'm taking back my old job.
I'm your daughter.
I don't want to get married simple.
I don't want to get married in a circus.
The trial is over. It failed.
Jack, Eddie is my nephew.
I'm worried about us.
I thought that you wanted this.
That was fast.
It was too fast.
For you or her?
She's not thinking straight.
She's in love.
They were just broken up.
Maybe they were just trying to figure out what mattered to them, and they found out it was each other.
I don't want to see her get hurt.
Well, they're both so different.
They're from two different worlds.
Are you talking about you or Maryellen?
Well, you and Cliff are very different.
Yes, and look how that's been.
We haven't exactly had the easiest relationship, and now we can't even decide what kind of wedding we want.
From my memory, it was easy for you to be married to Dan because you had so much in common, but, ultimately, it wasn't enough.
So, what am I supposed to do?
For Maryellen, have faith.
For you, it doesn't matter how you get married, what matters is that you love each other.
Embrace your difference.
It's what makes you and Cliff you and Cliff.
Hello there, Mr. D.A.
I haven't received your R.S.V.P.
I'm not a big wedding guy.
Yeah, well, you're coming.
You've already got the suit.
So I'll see you there.
Do I get a say in the matter?
Okay, thanks for clearing that up.
You tell him, Gracie.
I talked to Anthony.
I was hoping to get to you first.
So it's true.
I'm leaving Cedar Cove.
I wanted to tell you, I just didn't have the chance.
I know you.
There's something you're not telling me.
I deserve an explanation.
I don't have one, other than the one I've already given you.
Look, I gotta get to court.
Um, you want to go for a run a little later?
That sounds like fun.
As long as you tell me why you're leaving.
How much push-back from the Montaulk community are we talking?
Quite a bit.
They managed to hold up development on a planned strip mall for the last six years and counting.
I am, and thank you very much.
You'll also be pleased to know, Dad, that I'm accepting your offer, 50-50, signatory power with Alex, on behalf of the company.
How very conciliatory of you.
That's the opposite of tenacious.
I don't think he knows what "tenacious" means.
All that private school money down the drain. What a shame.
Can we just focus, please?
Why did you change your mind?
You going to change yours Nope.
So, I figured we would just move forward, then, and speaking of moving forward, Dad, when are you planning on going to the Hamptons?
I'm sending my business partner in my stead.
What are you talking about, I'm your...
I'm your business partner, Dad.
No, you're my associate at Saget Development.
I'm talking about my personal business partner.
And who might that be?
You've got to be kidding me.
You're hard to find.
Well, that's the idea.
Brad and Jennifer are dropping their request for damages.
We're both going to take care of our car repairs.
I called them and told them I changed my mind about settling, and they don't want to go through the court system.
Because they are lying.
Well, I do now.
Otherwise, they wouldn't have dropped their charges so fast.
But my word wasn't good enough for you.
You had to call their bluff to believe me.
I know, I'm sorry.
I let the past get in the way of the present, and I shouldn't have.
And you stay as long as you want to.
Well, with Jack here, it's getting a little crowded.
But I have so much space.
I need more.
I'm in your way in my own house?
Yeah, a little.
You want to re-up?
I'm not breaking up with you.
Deciding to re-enlist in the Navy without talking to me first sounds like a break-up because it is a break-up.
I was waiting for the right time to tell you.
Look, I've felt lost since I left the Navy.
I didn't know that you still felt like that.
Well, I do.
Look, Derek is great, but this isn't the kind of work that I thought I'd be doing for the rest of my life, and now that I'm doing better, I'm going to the base.
I have a meeting.
I can't believe that you want to leave, after everything that we have been through.
I still love you.
If you really loved me, then you would have discussed this with me before doing anything.
This is a really big decision.
You know what, now I need to be alone.
Shouldn't you be anywhere but here?
I need you to lift my suspension.
And why would I do that?
Because I'm the hardest-working A.D.A. you've ever had, and you need me.
Thank you for your concern, but I have everything under control.
Business as usual.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get these files to the clerk.
If you lift my suspension, I can file them.
Rebecca, you didn't show up for work, you didn't call, and you missed two filings.
And I have no reason to believe that won't happen again.
The law is a team sport, and you're so singularly focused on your career at the expense of the work of this office.
This isn't some stepping stone to your next big move.
What we do here, it affects people's lives.
This isn't just about your career.
I get that.
I don't think that you do, and it's clear to me now that this time away hasn't adjusted your attitude at all.
I don't know where to start.
Why didn't you tell us who you were?
I didn't think you wanted to meet me.
I came here to confront you both.
But you didn't.
I changed my mind.
I guess I wanted to know you, even if you didn't want to know me.
But you had a fake I.D.?
From some undercover work I did with the sheriff's department.
You're an ex-cop, a private investigator.
I'm a stranger in town.
If you started getting curious, I just didn't want you to know that I was the daughter that you gave up.
It was silly, and I never used it, but it was in my wallet when Rebecca found it.
I want you to know that I have thought about you every single day since I gave birth to you.
You're my first thought when I wake up and my last thought before I go to sleep.
I thought about where you were, if you were happy, if you were loved.
I know that I don't have any right to ask you this, but I hope that we can start over.
I want you in my life.
We want you in our lives.
Does Linnette know... anything about me?
Luke wants to leave Cedar Cove.
He wants to re-up.
He wants to leave, so much so, that he would go back to people trying to k*ll him.
That's a message.
No, it's not.
He enlists and plans on staying together?
I'm sure he'll come around.
Yeah, maybe, when he's halfway across the world.
Even if it's subconscious, it's still a move away from you, and to somewhere else.
Look, I know you're going through some things right now, but could you maybe not try to say out loud every thought that you have about things?
Let's try that.
So, once we get the restaurant up and running, we can plan the wedding.
Whatever you want.
I want to elope.
I've been through all this with my mom, and I don't want the spectacle, I want to be your wife as soon as I can.
Your mother's never going to go for this.
I'm a grown woman.
It's my choice and my life.
[cell phone rings]
It's the bank... about the galley.
I'm getting married.
Do you really want to?
I thought he was going to ask me a month ago, and then he didn't, and he left, and I've been miserable without him.
I love you, and I love John, but I think this just might be too big a change for the both of you.
Why don't you just wait, see how the restaurant does, and then you can start to make plans for the wedding?
Where is this coming from?
You being too impulsive.
Honey, the two of you were pretty much broken up and now you've just committed to spending the rest of your lives together.
We're in love.
I just don't want to see you get hurt.
I said that.
I was wrong.
I'm not you and John isn't Dad.
I trust him.
With your heart?
All of it.
I only have an hour for lunch.
We have something we need to tell you.
You're freaking me out.
It's about Gloria.
What did she do?
It's not what she did.
It's what we did.
What did you do?
Gloria is your sister.
Before your father and I were married, I got pregnant, and I gave my daughter up for adoption.
She's your sister.
It's why she came to Cedar Cove, it's why she moved across the street from you, it's why she's been trying to get to know you.
I can't be here right now.
Let her go.
Luke, I know how much you want to be back, but after all you've been through, I have to ask why?
I want to serve my country.
I miss it.
You know, not the w*r but the brotherhood, the feeling of purpose.
I mean, honestly, I still feel guilty for being here, for being alive, for not being over there with my buddies.
I thought that would change, but it hasn't.
You know, you're not the only young man to come back and say these things to me.
Sometimes being a civilian can be a hard transition.
You've had some medical issues, son.
That was in the past, sir.
Unfortunately, what you're asking, to re-up, to go on active duty, will put you in situations that could bring on episodes.
Even if I wanted to, there are hurdles in your way.
It is difficult for a soldier with severe PTSD to re-enlist.
Son... in order to find a new purpose in life, you need to face whatever it is that's challenging you and make peace with it.
I suppose you're here about Alex.
What is it with her, Dad?
Are you thinking she's a candidate number four for wife, is that what you're thinking?
Because if you are, trust me, Dad, you've got to keep looking, she's not interested.
Alex and I have a purely professional relationship.
So, what you're telling me is you just decided to just ask a relative stranger to be your business partner?
Alex isn't a stranger.
Dad, up until recently, she was paid to play with horses.
You know what your problem is?
You're always thinking inside the box.
You look at Alex, you see a girl.
When I look at Alex, I see someone who is fearless.
Her job was to tame horses 10 times her size, and she did it without blinking.
She has proven herself to be someone I want on my team.
What about me, Dad?
What's it going to take for me to prove that I belong on your team?
You can't answer that one, now, can you?
And you want to know why?
Because you can't see me.
All you see is that little kid who you can set aside whenever you want.
But you know what, Dad, I'm not that kid anymore, and I'm getting sick and tired of trying to convince you otherwise.
Well, before you storm out of here.
I'm not storming anywhere.
Let's remember what brought me to Cedar Cove in the first place.
And what is that?
I believe it was... that's right, to bail you out of trouble with the feds.
Gimme a break.
So you can preach all you want about how I've wronged you, but your recent history doesn't exactly give you the moral high ground, now, does it?
Keep the change.
The advice is free.
I had one outstanding brief.
I came in to finish it so it wouldn't fall through the cracks.
As soon as it's done, I'll be out of your hair.
It's not a problem.
I'm leaving Cedar Cove.
I'm going back to New York, and Anthony is returning to his post.
He doesn't seem to have the same issues with you as I do, but until I officially leave, the suspension stands.
Why are you leaving?
Did you land a bigger job?
I didn't take a job.
It's just time for me to go.
In your price range, there isn't a two-bedroom house for rent within a 15-mile radius.
Did you call my mom's real estate agent?
She said the market is tight right now.
I'm willing to go 20% higher, and you can start looking at one-bedroom houses 20 miles out of town.
That bad, huh?
Between Jack and Olivia's new nesting arrangement, and Olivia's rules, I'm...
I can't take it anymore.
What rules are those?
Pick up this, pick up that.
Don't leave the milk open.
And I have to start wearing pants at all times.
Those all sound pretty reasonable.
I'm just saying.
Maybe this market is a sign that it's time for me to leave Cedar Cove.
No, I will find you something, just give me a little more time.
Okay, but hurry.
I need my freedom back.
You gotta send me a pic when you finish this thing.
Why? Where are you going?
I'm... I'm going home.
I thought this was your home.
I did, too, for a while.
So, you're leaving?
Yeah, it's time.
I thought you liked it here.
And you and Peggy have been great.
Well, Peggy has been great, but, eventually, you were great, and I'll pay you through the month.
So, you don't want to tell me why you're leaving, huh?
Nothing to tell.
Well, having nothing to tell and not wanting to tell are two very different things.
I think it was easier when you didn't like me.
Well, easier isn't always better, it's just easier.
I got your message.
Let's get married.
You keep saying that.
Yeah, but let's do it.
Let's get married in a nice simple ceremony, like you want.
This whole back and forth between us, it isn't worth it.
I can cancel the choir, and the doves, and the venue.
Let's just get married with our closet friends and relatives.
We're so different.
And it's the difference that makes this whole thing work.
I've been trying to drag you into my world, and it's... it's not fair.
Give and take?
Pretty nice way to start a marriage, huh?
Are you sure?
That I want a simple wedding?
But I am sure that I want us to find our "us."
I'll take care of everything.
I love you.
I love you, too.
What are you doing still awake?
I missed you, so I waited up for you.
Mm... it is nice to be missed.
I think Grace's wedding could be a fun date night for us.
Honey, right now, I just can't promise anything.
It's Grace's wedding.
I know, and I will try to be there.
I don't want a roommate, I want a partner.
Olivia, I am giving you everything that I've got, okay?
I am here right now with you.
Isn't that enough?
I think we both deserve more.
Okay, two-bedroom on Connor Street.
It's a tad above your budget, but, um, I think I can get them to negotiate.
It's so run-down.
Okay, uh... this one's nice.
It's only a one-bedroom.
Will's only one person.
What if he has a guest?
They can sleep on the couch.
I don't know, Will, it's kind of limiting.
Yeah, I think Olivia is right.
I think we should keep looking.
Okay, I'll keep digging.
Between this, school, and whatever is going on with Luke, I've got all the time in the world.
Hmm, I remember being your age... so much free time.
I'm so glad you called.
Did they tell you?
That you're my sister?
You lied to me.
I've been telling everyone that you're okay, and to give you a chance, and you've just been lying to me, to my face.
I didn't know how to say the things that I came here to say.
And I thought your parents didn't want anything to do with me, but they do.
I was wrong.
So was I.
Linnette... we're family.
I just wanted to meet you.
Family doesn't lie to each other.
I just called to tell you to your face, stay away from me.
I want nothing to do with you.
So, you can't go back to the Navy.
I knew it'd be a long sh*t.
I got a couple buddies who have tried.
Man, you've done your service.
Yeah, I know.
You don't know this about me, I used to play football in high school.
I got scouted, got a full ride, headed off to college.
It was everything I'd ever dreamed of since I was five.
My first season, I got hit by a 300-pound linebacker, bent my knee 90 degrees the other direction.
I spent the next year in and out of operating rooms, rehab, lost my scholarship, couldn't play anymore.
So, what did you do?
I buried the past where it belongs, in the past.
I hooked up with a friend of my father's, and I took all that hard work and passion I had for football and I put it into this.
When I started, I was the youngest captain out here.
Some of the guys still give me the business.
It's not the Navy or anything, but I know what it's like to give up on a dream, and I'm proof that you can come out the other side better.
Different, but better.
I don't think this is as much about the Navy as it is about Justine.
I wouldn't be able to do the infrastructure series justice.
I have two other field pieces I'm working on.
I don't have time for a third.
Eddie reminded me that the paper has a lot of resources invested in those pieces of his.
Jack, you seem very passionate about it.
You could handle it.
I'd love to.
I love the field, I love this story, I know it'll have a national audience.
So it's settled, Jack will write the series?
And of course, Eddie will run the day-to-day of the paper while I'm gone.
You are my second, after all.
Okay, what's wrong?
I put that cookie in front of you an hour ago, and it's still there.
Well, Paul is going back to New York.
Okay, I know why I'm upset, but you spent most of your time trying to get him to go.
I was just watching out for Jack.
I like him, okay?
I always liked him.
It was hard to not like him, and now that everything is okay with Jack and Olivia, and I'm free to not-not like him, he's leaving.
If he wants to leave, we can't stop him.
I don't think he wants to leave.
I think he likes it here.
Can I get some extra whipped cream?
In a minute.
What did you do with Rebecca?
You are clearly a clone.
Very sweet, but not the real deal.
Paul is leaving.
And you're taking his job?
No. Not yet, anyway.
But it definitely means I won't be on suspension for much longer.
Why is that?
Because Anthony is a pushover, and I'll just go back to doing whatever I want.
Doesn't sound like Anthony's a very good boss.
Well, I don't need a leader.
I do better when I'm in charge.
You're the best.
Don't I know it.
Well, Paul is clearly a very good teacher.
I was suspended.
How do you call that being a good teacher?
Because he was trying to teach you how to work well with others.
I'm not in Third Grade.
I don't need Paul schooling me on how to be a lawyer.
Being advised can be super helpful.
I could use a little guidance myself right about now.
Luke hasn't called?
I obviously wasn't making him very happy.
Maybe... it'll work out.
How bad is this Luke thing if you are trying to cheer me up?
I need cake.
It's a medical term.
Short for "statim."
Latin for "immediately."
They say Latin is a d*ad language, but actually...
You guys don't care.
I care about cake.
So, are you going to tell me what's wrong?
You don't want to know.
Gloria, our neighbor?
She's my sister.
Perfect. Let's talk later.
[knock on door]
The Smith brief, and I have to warn you, it's anything but brief.
Your leaving is the talk of the courthouse.
Well, good news travels fast.
Everyone loves you.
We're all going to miss you.
Why is that?
Why are we going to miss you?
I'm fun and likable.
No, I mean, why are you leaving?
I can tell you don't want to leave.
No, really, I can see it in your eyes.
You know, and I know you.
You don't want to leave.
I want you.
I have to leave, because I have feelings for you that go beyond the scope of the job.
You once said, uh, that love was worth fighting for, and you're right, and I know that you're right, and I would stay, but I can't blow up your world.
Not now that you finally have it on track.
You have Jack, and I don't want to cause any trouble, but I can't just stand by and not do anything.
I can't pretend that I'm not falling for you.
For opening me up again.
I wasn't even sure if my heart worked anymore.
But it does.
And it... breaks... every day I can't be with you.
You know what I'm going to miss most?
I'm going to miss our friendship the most.
You're a great friend.
And that's all I'll ever be.
Which is why I have to go.
Because I can't stand by and watch you be with someone else.
So, did Mom tell you the news?
Yes, you and John are buying the Galley.
John and I are getting married.
Grace! How could you not tell me?
Mom thinks it's a mistake.
I just think the two of them need to slow down.
John and I know what we want.
I'm just saying that what's the hurry?
Mom is taking a leap of faith, I don't see why she can't support me doing the same.
I have a lot more experience than you have, and I don't want to see you get hurt.
I'm not going to get hurt.
That's how I felt when I was your age, and I did get hurt, and I married the wrong man.
Now, I'm not going to stand by, watch you make a mistake, and not say something.
You won't have to.
What's that supposed to mean?
He wants me to write the infrastructure series.
Yeah, I know.
This is totally not cool.
You know what's "not cool"?
Your attitude towards me, towards the paper, towards this job, even towards journalism.
You see me as competition.
I see you as a privileged, over-educated kid with a whole lot of attitude, and no skill to back up that attitude.
That's what I see.
Look, do you want to get some skill?
Do you want to learn?
Do you want to get better?
Do you want my job someday?
Then that all begins now, right here, with you first losing that attitude, rolling up your sleeves, and getting to work at getting some real life experience.
So, you're trying to help me?
You know, I was you.
Actually, I think I was worse than you.
But my first editor, he took me under his wing, and he showed me how to back up that bravado and attitude with real skill, and, you know, a funny thing happened.
The more skill I acquired, the less bravado I needed.
You wouldn't be doing this if my uncle didn't own the paper.
Maybe not, but I am doing it.
So, the question is, what are you going to do about it?
So, the key is to present our case as a given so the focus is on negotiation not permission.
You know this has nothing to do with you, right, Alex?
He's using you to get to me.
I'm good at what I do.
Yeah, well, I'm better, and he knows it.
We're in the middle of a meeting, if you don't mind.
No, I do mind, actually, Dad.
I mind very much.
Okay? I'm done.
You want control of Saget, you want Alex running your investments, you want to live in Cedar Cove?
But do me a favor.
You do your thing, and I'll do mine.
[clears throat pointedly]
So, as I was saying, we can't let the community think that they're in control.
You know, one day, you two are going to go too far, and he's not going to come back.
You'll regret it.
Luke wants to re-enlist.
He wants to, and he didn't tell me before he went and talked to Vice Admiral Nelson.
I don't know what to do.
Do I push for the relationship, or do I just let him go without a fight?
Do you think he wants to leave?
He tried to re-enlist, Mom.
Do you love him?
That's the easy part.
Relationships take work and commitment, but if you think he's the one, you already know what to do.
The question is, is he the one?
I'm done hounding you.
I'm just here to meet Anthony.
Well, good luck with that.
I know you'll get what you want.
I'm sorry if I was a pain.
You, you're a joy to work with.
Seriously, I'm sorry that I wasn't more of a willing student.
I should have listened to you more, because you're really good at your job.
Well, thank you.
You're a good attorney, Ms. Jennings.
I just hope that someday, you'll learn to ask for help because then I'll know our time together wasn't wasted.
Mom, can I borrow these?
Yes, of course.
Get the clutch to go with it, but hurry.
Grace wanted to get ready over here, and she and Maryellen want to come downstairs.
And she doesn't want us to see her in her dress.
So, still no rental?
I found you many places.
You just didn't think any of them lived up to mom's standards.
Will, I told you, there is no pressure to leave.
Hey, guys, what about my place?
I mean, it's just sitting there, fully furnished, empty.
Jack, that is a great idea.
It's amazing. Are you sure you want to rent it out?
Yeah, why wouldn't I?
Well, what if you need it?
Why would I need it?
I live here.
True, but just what if...
What if... what?
It's a great idea.
It's a great idea.
Okay then, we've got a deal.
Thank you so much, Jack.
Yeah, you bet.
Now I just hope Grace is okay with me being Justine's plus-one.
Grace has enough to worry about.
She is not thinking about you.
And we're going to be late.
Aw, we're going to miss you.
A lot of people around here are going to miss you.
Do you really have to go right after the wedding?
Let's go, huh?
I've got a bride to give away.
Yes, you do.
All right, it's all steamed.
Aw, don't be.
It's just so hard.
You make it hard.
Ever since Daddy, you've built this shell around yourself, for protection.
But Cliff, he broke through.
Trust your heart and take that leap.
How did you get to be so wise?
I'm your daughter.
And you cannot elope.
You cannot elope, because you cannot deny me the joy of planning your wedding.
I don't want a big ceremony.
But I do want you there.
I love you.
I love you, too.
He was, like, smelling it.
How'd you score your ticket?
I know Cliff through Alex.
How about you?
Well, I'm crashing.
Or I lost my invite in the mail.
One of the two.
Never take "no" for an answer.
That goes for us as well.
You're a Saget, not a quitter.
My job is to push you. You know that, right?
Yeah, Dad, I know, but, unfortunately, sometimes, you push me a little too far.
Maybe. I never said I was perfect.
No, I'll give you that, you're definitely not perfect.
Well, you keep trying to best me, one day, you will.
I hate you.
That's the sweetest I've ever seen you two be with each other.
Oh, my God, Alex, come on, pull yourself together.
It's a wedding, not a funeral.
Do you want a drink?
No, thank you. Have a seat.
Let us explain.
I told Gloria...
You talked to her?
I told her family doesn't lie to family.
Please forgive us.
I don't think I can.
I didn't think you were coming.
I felt like I needed to be here.
Don't feel like you have to be here.
Don't feel obligated to be here, or obligated to be with me.
It's not a duty, it's a relationship.
I want you to be with me because you want to be.
It's not a matter of wanting to be with you, I love you.
I just don't know if I can be the man that you want me to be, and the man that you deserve.
Seems we keep running into each other, huh?
[playing a Bach concerto]
Thank you, Bob.
Just so we're clear, I am not giving you away, just loaning you out.
Cliff did it.
But he didn't want anything splashy.
He wanted you to be happy.
Oh, I love him.
