Wishful Storytelling: Why Now is The Perfect Time For Warner Horizon to Do Knots Landing 2.0
Mac refuses to walk Meg down the sandy aisle at her wedding to Bobby, resulting in the young woman asking her bio dad, Gregory Sumner (William Devane) to step up. Greg pays a visit to his old frenemy, telling Mac what a jackass he's being. Greg assures Mac that it should be him, not Greg, walking their daughter down the aisle. However, if Mac doesn't get over himself, Greg won't let Meg down.
At the last minute, Mac shows up at the beach to give Meg away to Bobby. He later thanks Greg for giving him the ass-kicking he needed. Mac and Greg's truce is short-lived. Greg gifts Meg and Bobby a house on Seaview Circle (the old Avery home), two brand new, his-and-hers Porches and cushy jobs at Sumner Group as wedding presents!
Mac, Karen, Gary and Val all accuse Greg of trying to buy the kids' love, which he denies. He says he simply wants them to have a decent start in life.
