Storyline

Gwen's most recent encounter with an alien is going to make her wedding a memorable one. Just before meeting her girlfriends for her hen night, she is bitten by an alien. The bite seems inconsequential but she wakes up the next morning quite pregnant and appears to be ready to give birth. She has a lot of explaining to do - to Rhys, her parents, his parents - but she flatly refuses to cancel her big day. As the rest of the Torchwood team try to determine exactly what the culprit might be, there's a woman at the wedding who is very interested in Gwen's condition.: the unborn alien's partner who is there to collect the soon to be born creature.

Gwen is late for her bachelor party. The reason for that is because she was hunting for a shape shifter who while fighting with her managed to bite her just before Jack killed him. After bachelor party she returned home, and the next morning woke up pregnant. Jack and Owen arrived and confirmed that she was impregnated by the bite of a shape shifter. After she calls Rhys he comes angry thinking she want's to bail out but then he sees her pregnant and blames Jack. Aldo Jack advised her to postpone the weeding witch was five hour away, Gwen refused because as she said to Rhys now is the right moment to get married and she wont wait no more. After Owen does a post mortem for alien he finds a disturbing facts that shape shifters have an unusual way of procreating and that Gwen is in real danger. Unaware of this Gwen has other problems for one how to explain her pregnancy to her parents. The episode was funny, sure there was action and a chase as usual. The shape shifters were disgusting. They had claws and their mouths were full of something that looked like black inc. Toshiko confided to Gwen that she has no future with Owen and that was really the sad statement. The connection between Rhys and Gwen never looked better. In the end like Jack said he was her hero and savior. Jack looked melancholy for loosing Gwen, but wished her great honeymoon. The other shape shifter had a few lines, but the actress did look like an alien with her dark eyes and black hear. Spooky. Gwen in her weeding gown, even pregnant looked gorgeous and the weeding ceremony was beautiful.
