Main Story

Titled "Union", it opens with Uncle Chuck helping Sonic prepare for being the best man at Antoine D'Coolette and Bunnie Rabbot's wedding.

Knuckles the Echidna comments that Espio is off on a mission.

Meanwhile, Espio infiltrates New Megaopolis. Sonic goes to visit Bunnie, only to be used as a distraction for Amy Rose. Rosie, Sally, and Bunnie all admire Bunnie's dress and congratulate her. Rosie and Bunnie hint about Sally still liking Sonic, but Sally denies it. Meanwhile, Espio discovers Dr. Eggman's battle armor.

Sonic, Knuckles, and Julie-Su briefly discuss if the latter two would ever have a marriage ceremony, although both doubt it. With no word from Espio, Sonic arrives to meet the Royal Family at the throne. After Sonic and Sally tease each other, most of the other family members comment and Sonic and Sally's old relationship, bringing up an awkward silence, broken only by the arrival of Amadeus Prower and Tail's mother.
