Episode Recap

Academy Award hopeful Lana Layne's past comes back to haunt her on the eve of her marriage. She was once known as Rosemary "Peaches" Cassidy and was married to an ex-convict named George. George thought she was dead, but he manages to track her down. He wants to stay her husband and tells her that if they had a divorce he would get half of everything she owned. Lana does want him as her husband and does not want a divorce. She hits him on the head and kills him. Lana and her fiancé Harry Lawrence decide to bury George's body on their honeymoon. They also try to keep the location of their honeymoon a secret. Unfortunately, a gossip columnist named Haila French tracks them down to get an exclusive story about their honeymoon. She surprises them just as they are unpacking George's dead body.
