Felicity lies in bed, staring into space. Elena and Tracy knock, then walk in and sit on her bed, apologizing if they woke her up. I don't know what is up with Tracy, but he is just a mess. First of all, he's wearing a really ugly patterned shirt. Then, there's the moustache. It's yucky. And he looks...puffy. Elena looks gorgeous as always. Tracy explains that his minister was supposed to perform their wedding ceremony, but he's overbooked. Okay, whatever. I'm going to let that one slide, because there are a lot more unrealistic points to this storyline coming up. Elena says that that they know how much Felicity believes in "commitment and love." Tracy adds, "And fidelity." Felicity has a momentary look on her face like, "If they only knew..." before she recovers. Elena asks Felicity to perform their wedding ceremony. Felicity thinks they are joking, but Elena explains that she can be ordained online, not adding that she found out about it on Friends. Felicity protests that she doesn't know anything about performing a ceremony. Oh, like a perfectionist like Elena wouldn't have a script already written out. Tracy says that Felicity can talk to his minister, and also to his aunt and uncle, who've been married for fifty years and have a lot to say about love. Felicity suggests that Tracy's aunt and uncle perform the ceremony, and Tracy says that they are "nuts." Felicity looks desperate as she tells Elena that she doesn't want to ruin her wedding. Elena says that it will be ruined if Felicity doesn't do it, and tells Felicity that it would make them so happy. Well, given that guilt trip, who could say no? Felicity agrees. Here's my problem: Tracy is allegedly so religious that he wouldn't have premarital sex, and he went all the way to Africa with his church and everything. And yet, he wouldn't want a member of the clergy to perform his wedding ceremony? And even if there were last-minute problems, you'd think he'd at least want someone who was a churchgoer, which I don't think Felicity is. I just don't think it's consistent with his character, and thus very contrived. Or at least more contrived than I expect from this show. Anyway, after Felicity agrees, Elena hugs her and then asks, with a giggle, what she's been up to. Felicity asks what she means, and Tracy points out that Felicity has "a big-ass hickey on [her] neck." Tracy and Elena giggle and walk out. Felicity bounds out of bed and checks out her huge hickey in the mirror, freaking out.
