The highlight of the show was a charity auction set up to raise money for pet adoptions, and items up for bid were dates with Cedar Cove’s eligible bachelors. Olivia talked Jack into entering the bachelor auction with the promise that she’d outbid anyone else, and her daughter Justine planned something similar with her boyfriend Seth. Grace’s daughter Maryellen is sweet on John, but didn’t want him to know she wanted to win a date with him, so she and Justine cooked up a scheme to each bid on the other and then swap dates.
Newly-divorced Grace isn’t sure she’s ready to get back into the dating scene, even though she seems interested in Cliff Harting, so Olivia stepped in and decided she’d bid on Cliff and give the date to Grace, and will get Grace to bid on Jack for her. The girls seem to have it all figured out, but the plans don’t work out quite like they’d hoped.
A surprise bachelor showed up, someone that Grace had been sweet on from afar in high school – Olivia’s brother. The judge has been after her friend to be more bold, so Grace acted on it in a moment of exuberance and bid on Olivia’s brother. Because each bidder was only allowed one win, that meant Grace couldn’t bid on Jack. Olivia didn’t want to back out on her promise to Cliff that she would win him for Grace, so she looked to her backup plan to have her mother bid on Cliff, but Charlotte had locked her keys in the car and was stuck in town. Olivia stepped out to try to reach her on the phone before Jack was up for bid, but ran into Cliff, who was leaving in a huff, obviously upset that Grace was enamored with Olivia’s brother. That delay was just enough to cause her to miss Jack on the auction block, so another lucky lady went home the winner.
For such a quaint little seaport town, there’s never a dull moment in Cedar Cove. Does Jack have a reason to be jealous of Olivia's new relationship with ex-husband Stan?
