On the night that Zander was released from jail, Emily, Zander, Alexis, and Sonny were walking down the steps of the Port Charles Police Station when two gunmen dressed as police officers opened fire on them.
However, Chloe's aunt arrived and claimed that a Las Vegas wedding did not qualify.
In order to cover up the real plan, Jax and Alexis got married instead.
Jax and Alexis became good friends while married, as did Ned and Chloe.
The four finally divorced when Chloe's Aunt Gertrude caught Chloe and Jax together.
Attempting to end the fiasco, Ned proposed to Alexis because he thought that if they were married, the press would leave them alone.
