While Sarah may have wanted to keep things quiet, Nora has decided that the perfect venue to vent her family drama is on her radio show… at the station her daughter owns. Bet she's going to get a stern letter from H.R.
Kitty is back and is struggling with a big decision, but she doesn't want to tell anyone until she and Seth decide… whether or not they are going to keep the baby!! Yes, Kitty Walker durn got herself knocked up by a barista. She tells Kevin the big news, but doesn't want to announce it to the family yet.
As Sarah prepares for her big day, she has abandoned Luc with her children, so she can better fixate on how her mother is betraying her by being happy and dating Sarah's bio-daddy, Brody. But there are bigger father issues in that Luc's dad didn't show up and he's convinced his mother did something. So he's not really talking to her.
The Walker family phone tree is in full effect. Kevin is the wedding planner, so he is the hub of all communication lines. Problem one: The wedding cake didn't arrive! Saul and Jonathan stay up all night improvising with a cupcake tree. Then everyone teases Justin about dating a married lady, so he dumps her.
The church is a Walker-style shitshow. Justin's a mess. Luc's grouchy. A random skank accidentally outs Kitty's pregnancy to Paige. Sarah starts having a panic attack and runs… straight to Brody, who is waiting outside 'cause he just wanted to see his daughter married. Sarah is touched, but more touched by the offer of a beer. Then through some glorious ret-conning, Brody convinces her/us that he's been watching her throughout her life. High school graduation, performance in a play, he was there. Uh… whatever, show. Sarah is so overwhelmed by the wonder of it all that she ends up having Brody walk her down the aisle. Awwww. Upping the awwwww factor? Jonathan asks Saul to marry him. And he says yes.
Also, turns out the random skank is one of Brody's kids. That's right, Sarah has MORE siblings.
Oh, and of course Tommy is there. But if we work hard and squint our eyes, we can pretend he's not.

Welcome to the series finale of Brothers & Sisters. What better way to wrap up a show than with a wedding! You see, Sarah is getting married today. Unless Luc comes to his senses and runs away from the Sarah that we have met this season. The Sarah who creates pointless drama, the Sarah that has BANGS, the Sarah who seems to have lost every last shred of common sense, the Sarah who drives to Modesto just to have a two-minute conversation where she tells her new bio-dad, Brody, that she doesn't want to see him ever again. Let's get started and see if Luc makes it down the aisle.
As a gentle reminder to the viewing audience, that yes, Nora does have a job, the show opens with Nora on the air sharing her daughter's paternity with whatever sort of person would listen to a call-in radio show called "Dear Mom." I'm guessing the few long-haul truckers who aren't serial killers and, thus, are lonely, receptionists at the local Y, and the small river mammals that populate the countryside surrounding Pasadena. I'm not sure if Nora has discussed this particular sermon with Sarah, because it seems to me that if I was quite literally the boss of my mom, I would not let her air my own mixed up genetic history with my employees, let alone the aforementioned audience. I mean, why mix the professional with the personal? If she doesn't put her foot down now, where is "dear mom" going to draw the line? Will she discuss Sarah's inevitable fertility issues? Her struggle with foot corns? Her predilection for camel-toe inducing pantsuits?
Nora is telling her audience of woodland creatures and lonely truckers that Charles Dickens' "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" was written about her daughter's wedding. Rather, her and Brody's daughter's wedding. So I guess Nora has told the beavers and muskrats all about her Jerry Springer worthy-past? You know that one box turtle was all, "TMI! TMI!" over that. Then in typical television show fashion, Nora says something like, "But that was the least of our problems" and then it fades to Sarah sitting up in bed looking anxious and staring into space. She turns and asks, "Are you awake yet, honey?" But it's not Luc! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahha. It's Kitty! This show has a serious sense of humor. Kitty is awake and Sarah reports that she had a terrible sleep because of this deep sense of foreboding plaguing her. Perhaps she psychically knows that her mother is spilling all her personal details to her employees? Kitty reminds her that she slept over so that she wouldn't see Luc in the morning and jinx the whole damn marriage. Because that is a thing that can happen to a marriage. You see your fiancé on your wedding day and that's it: DOOMED. You may as well not even walk down the aisle. Although, Luc didn't sign a pre-nup, so he should just go for it.
