Paige and Lucas preparing for their wedding.
Weddings are always difficult (at least, that’s what I would imagine), so add in the complications of the supernaturals and a pushy, interfering father… and it’s the potential for a wedding from hell. I genuinely feel for Paige and Lucas as they attempt to walk down the aisle. Savannah’s usual sass and sarcasm help to offset the frustrations that quickly trinkle through with the countdown to the wedding.
Although Benicio’s desire to get involved in the wedding is all-encompassing and immensely frustrating, it is not in and of itself unique. There are many horror stories of interfering in-laws attempting to make the Big Day their Big Day, so it is completely in character that Paige and Lucas are forced to suffer through this indecency too. It is a reminder that although Lucas is part of the supernatural mafia, he also has a father that does indeed love and care for him.
