On the day of Jazz's wedding, his bride-to-be makes sexual advances towards Will.

Plot Edit

Jazz announces his plans to marry Jewel, an inmate who was on an episode of COPS and is getting out on parole. Will talks the family into throwing a lavish wedding at home but on the day of the wedding, Jewel makes sexual advances towards Will, who is conflicted between telling Jazz the truth or not. Before the couple can announce their "I do's", Jewel gets cold feet and runs out. Jewel tells Will that she was never attracted to him but came onto him in hopes that he could tell Jazz, who would call off the wedding as Jazz shows nothing but kindness and respect towards her, something she feels she doesn't deserve. Will convinces her to go through with the wedding and at least give the marriage a shot.
