Harm flies to USS Patrick Henry (CVN-74) for his semiannual carrier qualifications -- scheduled before Mac and Mic set their wedding date -- on the day of the rehearsal. Harm expects to miss the rehearsal and the dinner, but he promises Mac to attend the ceremony. Mic and Bud go shopping together, Mac continues to show ambivalent feelings, and Bud and Harriet have trouble with their car and a cellphone. Harm passes his carrier qualifications. Skates has permission for a weekend in Washington with her fiancé Mic. Harm feels a strong need to attend Mac's wedding, the next morning, so Harm and Skates head to Andrews AFB aboard an F-14 Tomcat -- after a thunderstorm begins to form. They encounter problems with both the weather and the aircraft, and they eject. A chopper finds Skates in a rubber raft and hauls her aboard. The admiral and the gang receive the news during the dinner. The action (and the season) both end while Harm is near his raft but still in the rough sea. [To be continued... Written by DocRushing
