It's no secret that many of the characters on PASSIONS are — how shall I say this politely — dense, but you'd think that if Juanita is as dangerous as Pilar says, they'd leave town sooner rather than later. Granted, her family members are planning to take a trip around the world, but instead of leaving, say, immediately, they're busy planning a hasty quadruple wedding for Kay and Miguel, Luis and Fancy, Noah and Paloma and Ethan and Gwen. With everything going on, why would they even want to get married in Harmony? It's not like Europe is lacking for beautiful churches.
On that note, why is everyone in this town so obsessed with having multiple ceremonies? You don't get the attention you'd get having the day to yourself. It's difficult enough planning one wedding, let alone coordinating four! Plus, none have worked out so far (The Sheridan/Luis and Ethan/Theresa nuptials in 2001 were a bust, as were the Noah/Paloma and Fancy/Luis ceremonies in 2007). For a town so hung up on "signs" and premonitions, you'd think that this horrible track record would be a deterrent. Here's hoping that none of the brides end up wearing the same dress — though with everything they've been through, we'll forgive any of them for being a "bridezilla."
