MARRY ME!" across the sky from a plane owned by his friend Dig McCalfrey before Gilbert is arrested and sent to the —after the word "NOT" is ripped off by a nearby tree as they take off in Dig's plane. Dig returned to help him to escape with the aid of pancake-loving mental patient Mr. Campisi from the Beaver State Mental Care Facility asylum. While Gilly tried to tell Jo the truth about her mother's deception and failed before being knocked unconscious by Streak, one of Jack's henchmen. Mr. Campisi found Dig in a dryer machine back at the Eager Beaver Lodge Motel after their unsuccessful attempt to capture Leon.
Later at the Mitchelson estate during an afterparty following the wedding, while Jack's brother Jimmy cowardly and quickly left the party in order to flee the police and avoid going to prison, the Beaver police including Sheriff Merle Hobbs, and Officer Gina whom he had an affair with behind Jo's back, arrived and showed the ashes of Gilly (which is actually the ashes of Streak killed by Leon) scooped up in a thermos bottle and they have Leon in custody due to his involvement in a car crash that killed Streak. Eventually Jo's father Walter after breaking away the chains Valdine wrapped around him, reveals to the entire townspeople at the wedding party the truth he and his wife have hidden from Jo about Leon because they both wanted Jack's money, and Jack who set the whole thing up because he wanted her all to himself. A frustrated Valdine attacked Leon and suffered a stroke in the end while Jo found out the truth and end the engagement and the would-be marriage with Jack after she slapped him hard and says "You're sick! You're f**king sick!" in complete anger and disgust to her former ex-boyfriend who tries to have her all to himself.
