Forget who gets to keep the ring - when a couple splits, the real question is, who gets to keep the friends? Alex and Dave's wedding was supposed to be the happiest day of their lives, for them and their long-time friends - until Alex leaves groom-to-be Dave at the altar. The breakup, in the words of one pal, is a "huge game changer" that will complicate everyone's lives and make everyone question their own choices.

Recap

The scene opens with the marriage of Dave and Alex. Alex's friend, Penny, Alex's sister, Jane and Dave's friends Brad and Max are there to witness. However, as they are taking their vows, a guy named Bo in roller-blades enters and tells that she doesn't want to marry Dave and that she wants to go with him. Dave laughs at the idea that Alex would do that, but she tells that she can't do the wedding and runs off with Bo. Dave is devastated. Later at the bar, Max tells that was gay what Alex did and says that he would know because he is gay. Penny gets a text from Dave that says that he is "all good in the hood", which is a bad sign. She offers Jane and Brad a drink, but they tell that they are on a pre-pregnancy cleanse and that they are going to stick to it. Jane tells that a week from now they are going to be laughing at this whole thing and Dave and Alex are going to be back together. ..
