Right before the ceremony is set to begin, Samantha receives a random note, apparently passed via the priest. She reads the note, and is shocked to see that it says "the person you are marrying is a serial killer." Although she doesn't reveal the contents of the note to her friends, they are already pretty wary of Carlos and only need a small excuse to just halt this whole business.
But the wedding goes on, with no one too enthusiastic or happy. When everyone should be headed to the reception to indulge in copious free booze, everyone appears to be wearing winter coats and traipsing about the church and streets. Samantha seems to be hiding from her apparent serial killer husband, and their family and friends are hiding from both of their crazy asses.
After much cat and mouse, there is a fun twist to this story that I appreciated. This whole episode actually reminded me of John Landis's episode of Masters of Horror: Family. It had sort of the same creepy, eerie vibe. This episode was effective in the beginning and end, but sort of lagged a bit in the middle. Not a throwaway episode, but not the best either.
