Chris is an executive at Roboto. He and Daisy returned to Twin Peaks married, surprising some of their friends. Daisy announced she wanted to run for mayor of Twin Peaks. He supported her decision. He was suspected in the stabbing of Vinny, after Vinny refused to support Daisy's campaign financially. He was cleared after Victoria was arrested.
On the day of the election, Daisy disappeared. It was revealed that her twin sister Danielle kidnapped her and took over her life. This included the bedroom with Chris. Daisy escaped and Chris learned the truth.
However, Daisy's busy job schedule left Chris feeling unwanted. He continued his affair with Danielle.
Daisy and Chris then learned that Danielle had died! They agreed to adopt Danielle's 16 year old daughter Trenyce. Trenyce soon moved in, and was a handful. Trenyce had her own little secret: she knew about Chris' affair with Danielle. With Daisy still working long hours, Trenyce started to flirt with her uncle. Chris could not help but be attracted to his underage niece. Daisy then discovered that Danielle was pregnant when she died. Chris was floored to learn he was going to be a father. He kept mum and continued to be played by Trenyce. On a road trip to Milwaukee, Trenyce successfully seduced her uncle. Immediately afterwards, Trenyce revealed her plan to Chris. He was stunned. Once back in Twin Peaks, he realized he wanted to make his marriage work, but Trenyce kept a close eye on him. Daisy revealed that she learned that he was the one sleeping with Danielle at the time of her death and announced she wanted a divorce. Chris was devastated. Little did he know that Trenyce ended up pregnant and Daisy learned of his affair with Trenyce.
He started to grow closer to Victoria as he tried to help her remember her past and she was his sounding board. Daisy divorced Chris, who continued to grow closer to Victoria. After the divorce was finalized, Chris and Victoria hooked up. Meanwhile, Trenyce gave birth and was keeping a secret: Chris, not Andy, is the baby's father! Chris felt a connection to baby Andrew, but he couldn't place it. Daisy began to wonder about Trenyce's odd behaviour when Chris and Andrew were together. Chris helped save Trenyce and Daisy from Terrence. Daisy continued to worry about Trenyce's attitude, so she confronted Trenyce while Chris and Andy were present. Trencye denied everything and bolted into a snow storm. She and Andrew were in a car accident. Trenyce fell into a coma while Andrew required a blood transfusion to survive; Daisy turned to Andy to donate blood. Andy revealed the truth that Chris was the baby's father! Chris was shocked but donated the blood to save his boy. Victoria stood by his side as he was suffering from shock. He told Trenyce, when she awoke, that her lies cost him a lot of time with his son.
Chris decided to sue for full custody for Andrew. Daisy sided with Trenyce, Victoria with Chris. Right before the trial, Victoria proposed to Chris but he turned her down. At the trial Chris, Daisy and Trenyce all took the stand. Daisy realized that she was keeping Andrew from her father and apologized to him. Trenyce, meanwhile, became scared of losing her son forever. Right before the judge was about to make his decision, Trenyce asked the judge if Daisy could get custody as she was a happy medium for her and Chris. Daisy was stunned but agreed. The family seemingly came together, leaving Victoria feeling left out. Feeling insecure, Victoria drunkenly got married to Vinny on a trip to Las Vegas. Once home, she confessed all to Chris, who dumped her despite loving her. Daisy continued to tell Chris to back off of Victoria until she was free again. She and Vinny started annulment proceedings. Vinny and Chris continued to clash after Victoria was hit by a car. Victoria revealed that she suspected Meggan was at fault to Chris. Daisy and Vinny meanwhile were running in the election for mayor of Twin Peaks. On the day of the election, Chris leaked the story to the press that Meggan had hit Victoria and it ruined Vinny's name in the process. Daisy won the election as a result. Victoria confronted Chris with the truth claiming that his actions proved that he was still in love with Daisy. On Christmas, Daisy learned the truth and kissed Chris.
Chris and Vinny came to blow after Vinny learned that it was Chris that leaked the story to the Sun that changed the election results. Meanwhile, Chris was growing increasingly frustrated with Victoria as she still hadn't signed the annulment papers to Vinny. Chris was at the hospital to support Daisy and Trenyce when Trenyce's eating disorder was revealed. He and Daisy seemed to grow closer in the process. Finally, Chris gathered both Vinny and Victoria and demanded that she make a choice between the two men. Both men were floored when Victoria dumped both of them. Chris went and was comforted by Greta, Daisy's best friend and assistant. Soon, Greta and Chris hit the sheets, much to Greta's delight. Chris, meanwhile, was also sending signals to Daisy that they could get back together. Vinny began to suspect something was up with Greta and Chris and told Daisy; she confronted Greta, who lied about her relationship with Chris. Daisy soon discovered Greta and Chris kissing and was devastated. She confronted Chris, who apologized. Daisy told him that they would never get back together or even be friends and ordered him out of the house. On Christmas, Chris showed up at Daisy's and told her that he was leaving town with Greta. He said his goodbye's and went to Chicago.
In early 2015, Chris returned to town in the midst of a custody battle between Trenyce and Savannah over Andrew. He kept mum about who clued him in about the trial, even though it was Daisy. Chris took the stand but Trenyce still lost custody of Andrew to Savannah. Chris told Daisy and Trenyce that he and Greta had broken up and he is back a new man. He told Trenyce, however, that he had a plan to get Andrew back and to trust him. Soon, he was asking Savannah out on a date. At first, she was skeptical but she agreed and they ended up having a good time together so their dating continued. Chris, meanwhile, told Trenyce that their plan was working. Savannah was devastated when Reese passed away. Chris comforted her and used it to his advantage by proposing to her. Savannah accepted. Chris continued to tell Trenyce that their plan was working but Trenyce had her doubts. Frederick, meanwhile, was determined to find out the truth about what was going between Chris and Trenyce after he spotted them together a few times. Frederick bugged Trenyce's office and got on tape Chris and Trenyce talking about their plan. On Chris and Savannah's wedding day, Frederick played the tape. Savannah slapped Chris and ran out.
Chris pleaded with Savannah to forgive him in the new year, but she refused. Chris was left heartbroken as he really did end up having feelings for Savannah. He continued to share close moments with Trenyce, however. When Jemma, Daisy's long lost Aunt, arrived in town, she tried to convince Trenyce to locate her and Chris' child. Vinny offered to help them in their search. Finally in the summer, Savannah forgave Chris. Shortly after, Chris was horrified to learn that Savannah was killed the night of the storm. He and Trenyce hoped, however, that she would leave them with custody of Andrew. They were upset when Frederick gained custody of the boy and he told them that they would never see Andrew again. The ordeal seemingly pushed Trenyce and Chris closer together and Chris' distrust for Frederick grew. By the end of the year, Chris had a run in with Helen and they chatted.
Chris and Trenyce were hopeful of the lead on their biological child that Vinny found for them. Chris told Helen how excited he was, and the two continued to grow closer, which unnerved Adam and Trenyce. Trenyce soon spotted the two of them sharing a kiss. Chris and Trenyce were then devastated when Vinny's lead fell through. Daisy suggested to the them that they hire Meggan to locate their child. Chris, meanwhile, learned from Frederick that he sent Andrew to boarding school. Chris was livid that they didn't get a chance to say goodbye. He vowed revenge on the doctor. Chris and Helen, meanwhile, took their relationship to the next level after Helen filed for divorce and they had sex. Afterwards, Helen felt bad so Chris agreed for them to move slowly. Dawn saw them kiss and was livid with her mother. Trenyce, meanwhile and Chris agreed to go to Meggan to help find their child. Meggan agreed. They soon got impatient when no new leads came up, but Meggan told them that these things take time. Shortly after, Meggan announced that she did have a lead on their child. Chris was thrilled when Meggan told him and Trenyce that she had a lead on their biological child. Chris and Trenyce went to Houston together, where the lead turned up dry. They were upset. They ended up going to Santa Barbara for the double weddings, where they told Meggan that the lead fell flat. Chris and Trenyce, however, were shocked to see Andrew at the winery. He lashed out at them for killing Savannah. Chris confronted Frederick about his brainwashing of Andrew. Frederick told him that Andrew will always hate them. Back in Twin Peaks, Chris and Helen continued to pick up steam. Dawn saw them having sex and she ran away. Chris supported Helen as she tried to find her daughter. Meggan, meanwhile grew frustrated with Frederick and tearfully admitted to Trenyce and Chris that she was sending them on false leads in hopes of finding their child. Chris was furious and confronted Frederick over his lies regarding Andrew and the missing child. Andrew overheard Frederick admit that Savannah's death was an accident, but he also overheard Chris threaten Frederick. Chris, again, threatened Frederick on the night that Frederick was shot. The police questioned Chris later.
Chris was questioned by the police after Frederick was murdered on New Year's Eve. Chris admitted that he was at shooting range on New Year's Eve. Simona Lopez didn't think that Chris had a proper alibi, so she pursued him. Helen was worried that Chris might actually be guilty when Simona caught him trying to throw away his gun. Chris tried to cover, but he was arrested. Chris maintained his innocence. Trenyce supported Chris, but Helen didn't visit Chris once. Trenyce then revealed to Chris that Andrew told Simona that he overheard Chris threaten Frederick last November before Frederick was shot. Chris couldn't believe that Andrew would do that to him. Chris hired Natasha to be his lawyer. Natasha was able to prove that Chris was at the shooting range on New Year's Eve, which means Chris couldn’t have killed Frederick. Chris was thrilled to be released from jail. To celebrate, he threw a party at the Pampa Grill, on the same night the ice storm hit. Helen showed up, but Chris called her out for not supporting him. He realized that she thought he was actually guilty. Chris, then, supported Daisy and Trenyce after Jemma's accident. Trenyce told Chris that they should find their biological child; he agreed. Trenyce, meanwhile, convinced Andrew to support the family during Jemma's medical crisis. Andrew did show up to provide support, however, he remained convinced that Chris wasn't up to any good. Chris, meanwhile, made amends with Helen and he supported her after Dawn revealed that she is a lesbian.
