Ace is furious, but before he can act, he is shot by sleeping needle. When Ace wakes up, he is in a room that has a ceiling with spikes while being tied up, which is slowly descending while a large screen TV shows him the live documentation of Mona's wedding. It looks like Max will get away with the wedding and Ace probably never escape...alive.
