Synopsis Edit

Evert waves Willemijn's domineering mother Adrianne's haughty objections to a re-marriage goodbye, as she believes it's even tackier than a divorce, but the idea of a prenuptial sticks in Willemyn's mind. Finding Tippi Wan breastfeeding Remy, Cheryl is furious enough to brave her threats and throw the au-pair out. She breaks Martin's heart by telling him that Tom is the father, so Dr. Rossi makes a house-call, but in vain. Claire makes him consider his own past and that Remy is still theirs, which sinks in just in time for Evert's rehearsal dinner speech. Tippi Wan prepares a sinister double revenge.

Adrienne then convinces the naive Willemijn to get married at prenuptial agreements. When Willemijn tells Evert about the prenup, and her statement of trusting him, though having learned from the "first time", Evert immediately feels offended and distrusted. Though Willemijn is afraid to disappoint her mother's wishes, she is not happy about it herself either. As their marriage preparations continue, with Willemijn baking her own wedding cake, she has to deal with a lot of stress. While getting dressed, along with her friends, Willemijn receives an inheritable necklace from her mother, which she doesn't get quite yet.
