Max attends a Cale family wedding with Logan, but an angry art dealer on the receiving end of a Jam Pony slip-up drags Max away from the festivities.
Max agrees to attend a Cale family wedding as Logan's date. Logan warns her that this probably won't be a fun affair, but he is grateful that she's willing to accompany him and keep him sane in the midst of his family's insanity.
Meanwhile, a man by the name of Runyon contracts Jam Pony to deliver a package for him. He tries to drive home the importance of this delivery to Sketchy, but Sketchy nonetheless uses the packing tube to play-fence with Sky. Unbeknownst to the Jam Poniers, the contents of the tube get switched with those of another packing tube. When the delivery is made to Duvalier, an impatient art smuggler, he discovers that the contents are not the stolen Norman Rockwell painting he expected. He takes out his anger on Arnie Haas, Runyon's partner, but Haas assures him that there must have been some slip up at Jam Pony. Looking to set things right, Duvalier's men snatch Normal from Jam Pony and demand their painting.
Normal contacts Original Cindy and begs for help. Original Cindy determines that Duvalier's painting was mistakenly delivered by Max to an architectural firm. She calls Max and tells her that Normal's life depends on her retrieval of the Rockwell. Max slips out of the wedding - away from Logan's abusive Uncle Jonas and his ex-fiancée Daphne - and breaks into the firm where she delivered the painting. She delivers the Rockwell to Duvalier, who pops open the tube and unrolls the painting... only to discover that it's a forgery. Figuring that Runyon has double-crossed him, Duvalier flings Haas out a nearby window and demands that Max find Runyon and get him the right painting. Otherwise, he'll throw Normal out another window.
Max finds Runyon and smacks the truth out of him: he sold the original painting to another buyer and tried to pull a fast one on Duvalier. Max and Original Cindy return to the wedding and explain the situation to Logan, who tracks down Runyon's buyer. Max bolts off to a submarine yard to retrieve the Rockwell from a docked Korean submarine... leaving Original Cindy at the wedding to keep an eye on Logan and Daphne.
Max steals the painting from the submarine captain and manages to escape without wrinkling her fancy dress. She delivers the painting to Duvalier, drives Normal home, then returns to the wedding. Logan can't believe that she would deliver a priceless work of art to a lowlife smuggler, and determines to get the Rockwell back from Duvalier. He sets up a sting at the airport - the authorities arrest Duvalier for the murder of Arnie Haas as Max casually strolls off with the painting; Logan has essentially managed to frame Duvalier for a murder he did commit and steal from him the painting that he stole.
Maybe this episode should have been named 'The Adventures of a $6,000 Dress'. That's all I could think about as I watched Max run around town trying to save her boss, a stolen painting, a distraught architect, and Logan from making a fool of himself at his cousin's wedding.
This week's episode was written by Doris Egan and was a nice start to February sweeps. I consider this episode to be a side step of sorts after learning of the Red Series. It gave us a chance to see our favorite...
