Abigail is dealing with a pesky tree branch that is covering her business sign. She approaches Martha to get it trimmed. Martha tells her that since councilwoman Melissa Glen retired, Abigail will have to wait for her seat to be filled at the end of the year. Only then will her runaway branch be dealt with.

Cassie’s new order of spices come into the shop and Stephanie is sad to see the one ingredient she needs for her recipe missing from the shipment.

Martha calls a special meeting with the city council. She wants everybody’s approval to set an order of proclamation in honor of Sam and Cassie to announce at the wedding. Abigail wants to speed along the process, but Martha says they have to wait for Jared to record the vote. Jared finally arrives to the meeting and he brings with him a map of Middleton. Martha hopes that the map will end the conversation of where Middleton begins and Blairsville ends once and for all. Jared points out that the south side of Ridge Pine Drive is part of Middleton, but the north side of the street is part of Blairsville. Martha exclaims that she lives on Ridge Pine Drive… the north side, which also means that Martha technically lives in Blairsville. In result, this means she can no longer be mayor of Middleton. Jared says the rules are set in stone. Martha must hand over her title and gavel. Now that Martha has been stripped of her title as mayor, Abigail is next in line to serve, leaving both women speechless.
Back at the brewery, Cassie runs into Stephanie, Emma, and Emma’s fiancé Brian.

Cassie stops by the mayor’s office and finds Martha packing up. Martha tearfully explains that because she is no longer mayor, she cannot officiate Cassie and Sam’s wedding.

Martha scoffs at the idea, saying she won’t be treated like a stand-in, but then changes her mind and agrees.
George asks Nick how the best man speech is coming along and Nick says he is still struggling. When he finds Grace’s speech on her laptop, he sneaks a look, but gets caught! Grace and Nick start bickering and George can’t help but laugh. He says the two are already acting like brother and sister.

For a honeymoon suggestion, Cassie wants to travel far and wide, paying visits to all the loved ones who can’t make the wedding. Sam loves the idea.
