The season finale opened with a classic fakeout. Lux (Brittany Robertson) was helping Cate (Shiri Appleby), who was wearing a white dress, get ready. Baze (Kristoffer Polaha) was wearing a suit. Everyone looked dressed up and happy. But of course we knew what seemed like a setup for a wedding wasn’t so. It was far too early in the hour and the series for Cate and Baze to be walking down the aisle. Instead, they were being reinstated as Lux’s parents. It was a picture-perfect moment with Lux standing between her parents as they held hands. Cue the first waterworks moment. I counted at least six during the hour.

“It’s almost like I like you,” Cate remarks about how well they’re getting along. But she has no idea just how much Baze likes her, so the arrangements for her wedding to Ryan (Kerr Smith) continue. But things immediately start to go wrong before the first commercial break even hits. Cate’s mom (Cynthia Stevenson) has made tacky shot glass wedding favors. Abby is sick with food poisoning. (In reality, actress Alexandra Breckenridge got sick and couldn’t make her flight for filming of the season finale, creator Liz Tigelaar tells the Cornell Sun.) And to top it all off, the venue for the rehearsal dinner is flooded. Lux, knowing full well about Baze’s feelings and his refusal to admit them to Cate, offers up his bar as a replacement.
