We last saw the five friends at the Beagle for Brian and Emma's wedding, and it seemed that Catherine and Mac might finally be reconciled. But when Catherine went to retrieve a letter for Mac — she was side wiped by a passing van. In the season three cliff-hanger, Catherine's fate was unknown...

As we pick up our story, Brian is now married to Emma — and has one child and another baby on the way. Emma is determined to be a good wife and mother, but Brian has always been a hard dog to keep on the porch.

Brian now has to face up to big responsibilities — but when temptation is always just one hottie away — the question is: what could possibly make Brian man up enough to settle down?

Michelle is engaged to the handsome Richard. But love hasn't turned ball-busting Michelle into a pussycat. She now discovers the man of her dreams has a fatal flaw — as she also faces temptation from her past.

But the most important question will be about Catherine. Is she alive or dead? What is certainly true is: through this tragedy, Mac's faith is ultimately tested and the consequences will change his life forever...

Heart-breaking, funny and romantic, the telefeature is a satisfying conclusion for the popular characters in this much-loved show.
