Storyline

Piers is marrying the attractive and dominant Clarissa and asks B'stard to be his best man. Clarissa ends up having sex with B'stard though she is critical of his technique and makes it clear that after her marriage to Piers she will do all she can to stop B'stard using him as his lackey. B'stard then makes several attempts to kill Clarissa though they all fail and the wedding goes ahead. B'stard however has the last laugh by ensuring that all the guests go down with food poisoning.
