'Chasing Life' fan recap: Here comes the bride

Season 2 | Episode 6 | “The Last W” | Aired August 10, 2015

Wedding bells ring on Chasing Life! For those who doubted that we’d be getting a decision between Dominic and Leo during this season, the latest episode put all that to rest. We finally see April seal the deal with Leo!

The vows aren’t exchanged without a few bumps along the way first. Cold feet hit April in a different way than it hits other people. Her biggest fear was that Leo was marrying her as another one of his Robin Hood projects, but if there’s anything we have been able to bear witness to, it’s how genuine his feelings are for April. We know he wants to marry her for all the right reasons. Unfortunately, a minor argument with Frankie is what has to go down in order to motivate our bride to ask her groom if he’s only marrying her ’cause she’s dying. Watching the couple back-to-back, separated by a wall, while pouring out their most honest concerns made us feel like these two could for sure make it work.

April wants to make things work with Dominic too—just not in the way he’d probably hope for. She wants to sentence him to indefinite friend zone, but we now know he’s still in love with her. Right after April expresses how much she wants him present in those milestone moments, he comes up with some poor excuses as to why he’ll have to ditch her wedding. Eventually Dominic fans get to see their boy in a suit, running to the church in what seems like an urgency to stop the wedding.

Dom got beat to the punch when April interrupted her own wedding after collapsing before she even made it all the way to the altar. Apparently that clinical trial isn’t going too well. Rashes and fatigue aren’t symptoms April’s doctor can ignore. It looks like eldest Carver is going to have to try something else. Good thing Uncle George is sticking around for a few more days to assist in his niece’s care.

Even though George brought his girlfriend to the wedding, we know he’s flashing that relationship just ’cause. When Sara and George lock eyes, you can almost see the chemistry lasering from one’s eyes to the other’s. Now that Brenna knows about the history between her mother and uncle, we can only expect more secrets will be unveiled.

Back to the event of the hour. The wedding takes place in the hospital, in the very chapel that brought Leo and April together in the first place. So although there aren’t flowers in every shade of pink or hundreds of guests in attendance, they establish their marriage in the most perfect way possible for them. Now April faces new challenges. She’ll have to adjust to married life, while also trying to battle cancer in a new way.

Before closing this recap, it’s crucial that we honor Grandma Emma. We don’t know how much longer we’ll have her, since she’s leaving the Carver house for a few months to adventure. Her one-line zingers and sharp knowledge of pop culture have given us the laughs we’ve often needed throughout the darker moments of the series. Hopefully we don’t have to go through too many episodes without her. Is it too late to petition that she doesn’t go away?

Chasing Life airs Mondays at 9/8C on ABC Family.
