The wedding fever continues, and Brian Austin Green (Beverly Hills 90210) guest stars in the season finale of Happy Endings.

The gang find themselves at yet another wedding, this time at the nuptials of Derrick (Stephen Guarino) and Eric (Nate Smith). Will there be “drama”, to quote Derrick? Of course, as Brad (Damon Wayans Jr) struggles to tell Jane (Eliza Coupe) something important; Jane tries to find a way to help Eric hide the fact that the pricey reception must be downscaled; and Max (Adam Pally) tries to find the courage to perform with his old, all-male Madonna cover band.

Meanwhile, a dateless Penny (Casey Wilson) is sad that she’s at another wedding, alone, until she meets a cute guy, Chris (Austin Green), via Skype.

Penny couldn’t be more thrilled that her thrice divorced mother has a new man in her life, but Dave on the other hand reacts childishly to the news.

Meanwhile Alex (Elisha Cuthbert), who is feeling lonely at the shop, decides to adopt an adorable parrot that turns out to be not so charming, spewing nonstop racist and homophobic rhetoric. Also, Alex enlists Brad (Damon Wayans Jr) and Max’s (Adam Pally) help, as she is convinced the Chinese restaurant next door is a front for a brothel.

Meanwhile, Dave is reluctant to introduce his new girlfriend (guest star Noureen DeWulf) to everyone.
