Scene One - Riverbench Winery; The Richardson Estate; Santa Barbara

"I've missed you so much," Leah tells Robbie as they exit their embrace and look at one another. Leah can't believe that she is finally seeing him again after so long. Since she had arrived here, she has wanted to get back to her family.

Robbie looks over Leah's shoulder and can see how uncomfortable Victoria is because of his embrace with Leah. He hopes that she understands that he is just happy that Leah is alive; he still can't believe that she is back but here is she, in front of him. It's like the last two years haven't even happened, only they did. And, so much has changed in these last few years.

"So, let me get this straight," Dominick tells everyone in the room, still in shock about what is happening, livid that once again Frederick did something to hurt her family. "Frederick, you've had Leah here the entire time we thought she was dead?"

Frederick nods back to him. "That's right," he agrees with him, knowing that he can reveal his story. He has nothing to hide.

"I've been here a long time," Leah explains to her father. "I've been staying in the west wing of the house. Everyone has been so kind but I missed my family terribly."

"So there hasn't been a renovation up there," Jeff tells him. "You were keeping Leah up there?"

"Why would you do that?" Meggan asks her father. "Why would you keep Leah here and not bring her back as soon as you knew she was alive?"

"We all thought she was dead," Felicia says as she comes up to Frederick. "Why wouldn't you tell us that our grief was for nothing? Why wouldn't you give us Leah back sooner rather than later?"

"It's a long story," Frederick sighs back to everyone as he puts his hands in his pockets. "I had my reasons."

"Well you better start explaining yourself," Dominick replies to him quickly, already losing his patience with the doctor. "This is just another one of your damn tricks, isn't it?"

"No," Frederick protests back to him. "The reason I kept Leah here is because she has amnesia," Frederick reveals to everyone. "She doesn't remember everything in her life."

Paige looks over at her mother and wonders if that's why Leah hasn't been happier to see her. "I was hoping to keep Leah here until her memory came back completely. I wanted to make sure she was completely healthy before I surprised you all."

"I can't believe you do this," Felicia whispers back to him as she comes up to. "How could you play God like this?"

"It wasn't my intention to upset you," Frederick pleads with her. "I wanted this to be a surprise for you!"

Felicia slaps him across the face. "You're a sick man, Frederick! My daughter is alive and you let me believe she was dead! You let us all believe she was dead! How could you?"

Scene Two - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"You remember what you have to do, correct?" Melissa asks the young male doctor, who is in the delivery room with Caroline, who is laying on the bed sweating as she has gone into labour.

The young male doctor nods back to her. "You gave me enough money to know what I'm going to do. This room will be closed off. No one else will be in here until after the baby is born. There's another room adjoining to this one; after the delivery, Rebecca will be placed in this room with the baby and Caroline will be moved to rest in the next room. Don't worry, everything is under control."

"I hope so," Melissa warns him, knowing everything is riding on the outcome of the birth. "Nothing can go wrong, absolutely nothing."

Caroline suddenly screams out in pain as another contraction hits her. The doctor looks back at her. "Remember your breathing," he tells her as he moves up to the side of the bed to be with her. "Ms. Young, I'm going to have to ask you to leave now. I should be with Caroline right now."

Melissa nods back to him before looking at Caroline. "Don't worry Caroline, your baby will be here very soon," she smiles.

Before she leaves, the door to the adjoining room opens and Rebecca emerges wearing a hospital gown. Melissa looks at her daughter and nods. "Get ready darling," she tells Rebecca. "This is it. I'm going to see Cory and keep him out of here until after the birth."

"Good luck," Rebecca replies to her, her heart racing a million miles per minute. "He won't be happy."

Caroline lets out another loud grunt as another contraction hits her, letting Melissa know that she has to leave the room.

"Where is Rebecca DeWitt's room?" Cory asks a nurse at the nurses station in a huff. He got to the hospital as soon as he could after getting a call from Melissa telling him that Rebecca had gone into labour. In his mind, it's still a little bit early for her to be in labour, but he has no idea what Rebeca has been going through because she has shut him out of so much of the process of the pregnancy. He only hopes that his child is born healthy; his mind can't help but wonder back to the last baby he was about to have, only when Robin gave birth, the child was stillborn. He can't go through that again.

"She's in a private room at the request of her mother," the nurse replies to Cory. "You'll hear something soon."

The nurse leaves before Cory can reply to her that he wants to be in the room with Rebecca. "I just want to be there for my child," he whispers back to himself. He grabs his phone and dials a number quickly. "Robin, hi," he says into the phone. "I know you don't want to talk to me but I had to tell you, Rebecca has gone into labour….I get that you don't care," he says to her, hearing the tone of disappointment in her voice. "But I wanted you hear it from me."

He hangs up the phone, when he sees Melissa walking close to him. "Melissa, where's Rebecca?"

Melissa purses her lips together. "I've arranged for a private room for her. She's very comfortable, but the baby is coming."

"I want to see her," Cory tells her. "I want to be with her when she gives birth."

"I'm afraid that won't be possible," Melissa replies to him quickly.

Scene Three - The Pampa Grill

"I don't have too much time," Cassie tells Max as they sit across from each other having an early lunch together. Cassie recalls being at her office when she got a text message from Max telling her that he wanted to see her. She knows that her son has been having a difficult time since learning that Adam is his father, so despite a busy schedule at work, she's trying to ensure she makes enough time for Max right now. "I have a patient in an hour or so."

"That's fine," Max replies to her before he takes a drink of his beer.

"You know," she says to him. "I don't know if I am used you drinking yet."

He smirks back to her. "Yea, yea," he grins. "Something like, I'm your baby and you can't believe how much I've grown up?"

"You took the words out of my mouth," she tells him before she takes a sip of her wine. "Have you seen your father? Have you made any inroads on that front?"

Max arches his eyebrow as he recalls Adam giving him some advice on taking his life in a positive direction. To Max's surprise, Adam gave him good advice and was very supportive. "I saw him last night and again this morning," he reveals as Cassie's eyes open in surprise.

"Well, I'm very happy to hear that you are seeing him so often," she tells him. "Does that mean you've made amends?"

Max shrugs. "I wouldn't go that far, but he did give me some good advice. And, guess what? I have a job interview tomorrow!"

Cassie shakes her head in amazement. "This is certainly a surprise," she tells him. "What would you be doing?"

"I'm not exactly ready to tell you just yet," he says back to his mom. "You'll be the first one to know if I get the job, though."

"I'm so proud of you," Cassie smiles back to her son. "Keep your head up, Max, because I know you're destined for great things."

***

Natasha sits a table alone drinking some wine as she recalls Cory getting the call that Rebecca went into labour as they were having brunch together. She hopes that the birth of Cory's new child goes well because she knows how his and Robin's lives were turned upside down when their child was born stillborn. She shakes her head, not wanting to dwell on that dark time in their lives.

"The birth of a child is a beautiful thing," she whispers to herself, as she thinks about Jacob. "Hopefully this will lead to good things in Cory's life."

She takes another sip of her wine as Shane approaches her table. He looks at his estranged wife for a moment and wonders how they got to this point in their lives. They used to be so happy together, now he has signed their divorce papers and he wants Natasha to do the same. He wants to move on with their lives and not keep being in this same place.

"Shane, hi," Natasha says, looking up and seeing her husband walk up to the table. "Please join me. Would you like a glass of wine?"

He shakes his head no as he sits across from her. "I'm glad I ran into you."

Natasha can't help but smile, hoping that Shane has finally decided that maybe he wants to work on their marriage. She knows that he has been shutting her out of that for a long time. She almost feels like she can't keep fighting all alone for the marriage. At some point, he has to try to fight with her, or it won't work.

"Are you?" she purses her lips together. "Well, I'm glad you were able to find me. Are you sure you don't want a glass of wine?"

"I'm positive," he tells her. "I've been thinking," he continues. "In therapy, I've come to a lot of realizations."

"In therapy?" she asks him, almost shocked that he's mentioning it. "You mean, your sessions with Cassie Nova?"

Shane nods back to her. "That's right," he tells her. "And, that's why I have signed the divorce papers. And, I want you to sign them too. I'm ready to end this chapter of our lives."

Natasha is floored when Shane pulls the papers out of his pocket and pass them across the table. "I can't believe this," she whispers in horror. "Just what did Cassie tell you in therapy? You realize what she's doing, don't you?"

Shane shrugs his shoulders. "She's listening to me while I talk about my feelings," Shane defends his sessions with the doctor.

"No," Natasha yells back at him. "She's feeding you lies and filling your head with insecurities! I knew that woman was up to no good. This is typical Cassie Nova!"

"Natasha, enough," Shane snaps back at her. "You had an affair with Adam Black; you miscarried his baby; you didn't believe me when I was on trial. Cassie had nothing to do with that. Now, I'm going to give you some time, but I want you to sign those papers. I'm done with this marriage!"

Natasha watches Shane walk away from her table before she picks up her wine and takes another swig of it. "How the hell am I going to prove that this is Cassie's doing?" she asks herself before she looks down at the divorce papers on the table. She shakes her head quickly. "I can't lose my marriage, not to Cassie Nova."

***

Kim enters the restaurant and quickly moves inside, immediately spotting Tyler sitting at the bar. She recalls texting the father of her child telling him that she had to see him because she has to make sure that he won't reveal the truth about how Robertson Enterprises was able to launch their facial cream before Roboto. She knows that Bob is determined to get to the bottom of it; and if he learns that she was the one who sent Tyler their formula, her marriage could be over, for good this time. She can't let that happen; she has to ensure that Tyler won't say anything, not now, not ever.

"I can't stay long," Kim tells him as she arrives at the bar.

"Well, hello to you too," he says, looking back at her. He can't help but still find the mother of his child very attractive. Even though he knows she is making her marriage to Bob work and he has been sleeping with Trenyce, if Tyler is honest with himself, he knows that he still cares deeply for Trenyce.

"If anyone sees us together," she whispers to him as she looks around the room.

"We can say that we were talking about Blake," Tyler informs her. "It's fine. What's gotten you so worked up?"

"The facial cream," she continues to whisper to him. "Bob is livid that Robertson Enterprise released the cream before Roboto could."

"Ah," Tyler can't help but grin back to her. "And, he doesn't know that his precious wife gave me your formula?"

She shakes her head. "He has no idea," she reveals to him. "And Tyler, he can't find out. For the sake of my marriage, he can't find out."

"Interesting," Tyler replies to her. "So, you want me to keep quiet?"

Kim nods back to him. "Please, if you ever cared for me, you won't say anything."

Scene Four - Riverbench Winery; The Richardson Estate; Santa Barbara

Frederick moves his hand to his face where Felicia just slapped him. "I'm going to let that slide," he whispers back to her. "How dare you come into my own and attack me like that, especially when I've just given you back your daughter!"

"You're lucky that's all I've done to you," Felicia yells back at him. "I can't believe I ever trusted you!"

"Can we please stop fighting?" Paige yells at everyone. "We have my mother back, this should be a joyous time."

"I tend to agree with Paige," Victoria interjects. "Regardless of Frederick's actions, Leah is alive. We need to remember that."

Jeff looks over at Leah and moves closer to her. "So, you don't remember everything in your life?"

Leah shrugs. "I don't know. I just know what I remember…I don't know if I can't remember anything else."

"Well, what's the last thing that you do remember?" Dominick asks his daughter.

Leah looks at everyone and feels water swell in her eyes. "Honestly, this is all so much for me to take in," she admits to him. "I mean, I know you're my mother," she tells Felicia. "But the last thing I remember about you, I believed you had died. I didn't realize you were alive. And, Paige," she turns to her daughter. "You keep calling me your mom, but I'm sorry, I don't remember having a child."

Paige's face drops to the floor at Leah's admission. "You…" her voice cracks. "You don't remember me?" Paige asks her in shock.

"I'm sorry but no," Leah admits to her. "The last thing I remember," she continues as her eyes move to Robbie. "Was marrying Robbie at the Calimo mansion; the next thing I knew, I woke up here, confused about why I wasn't on my honeymoon."

"I can't believe this," Meggan whispers in shock. "So, you think you're married to Robbie?"

Leah nods back to her. "I am married to Robbie," she tells everyone before she moves closer to him. "You're my husband, and I love you so very much."

Robbie accepts another hug from Leah, as he looks at Meggan, Jeff, Dominick and finally Victoria. He gulps when he realizes how hurt Victoria looks right now, but he doesn't have the heart to tell Leah that she's wrong about everything.

Scene Five - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"What do you mean, it's not possible to be with Rebecca?" Cory grits his teeth back to Melissa. "She's about to have my child! I should be with her right now."

"Cory," Melissa begins to reply to him, knowing that she has to keep him away from the hospital room. "She asked me to tell you she wanted to do this alone."

"Like hell she did," Cory spits back to her before he starts to turn around. "You know, this is exactly why I got a restraining order against you," he tells her, as her mouth opens in shock. "All you do is feed Rebecca these lies about me and you're trying to keep me from my child. Well, no more Melissa, this is ends now! I'm going into that room and that's final!"

Melissa watches Cory turn and rush towards the private room where Caroline is giving birth. She rushes after him, knowing she has to stop him. "Cory, wait, please," she pleads with him.

Cory arrives at the door and knocks before he opens the door. "Rebecca?" he calls out, but he's quickly greeted by the doctor.

"Oh, you must be Cory Calvin," the doctor says to him as Cory nods.

"Where's Rebecca?" he asks the doctor. "I want to help deliver my baby."

"That's not necessary," the doctor informs him. "It's over, the baby is here."

Melissa arrives at the door and breathes a sigh of relief hearing that the baby is born. "It happened already? How is my baby?" Cory asks the doctor.

"She's fine," the doctor smiles.

"She?" Cory asks as he gets a smile on his face. "I had a daughter?"

"Yes," the doctor continues to tell him. "She's just being cleaned up, then you'll get to meet her. And you'll see Rebecca. Just be patient. Everything has worked out beautifully," he tells Cory, before his eyes lock with Melissa's, who is standing behind Cory.

Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Cory walks up to the hospital room and peers inside the small window on the door. Inside, he can see Rebecca resting in the hospital bed with a tiny baby bassinet next to her. He can't believe that his child with Rebecca is finally here, and once again, Melissa was the one that was involved in the process rather than him, this time being the labour. He can't believe that Rebecca didn't want him in the delivery room and instead, he was forced to stay in the waiting room, while the baby was born. In his mind, this only justifies the fact that he has obtained a restraining order against Rebecca's mother.

He opens the door and quietly moves inside, not wanting to wake Rebecca. He realizes that she probably needs her rest after having a baby but he doesn't want to wait to see his daughter. This moment has been coming for such a long time.

He moves up to Rebecca's bed and she stirs, opening her eyes. "Hey," he whispers to her. "How are you feeling?"

"I'm fine," she tells him, knowing very well she never gave birth to a child. She has to act like the blissful new mother, which is easy for her because this will bond her to Cory forever. "I'm not the first woman to have a child. I won't be the last."

"Doesn't mean that you're not sensitive," he replies to her. "But I'm glad that you're fine. I can't believe our daughter is here."

"I know," she says back to him. "Sleeping away. She's beautiful, huh?"

Cory moves over to the bassinet and looks at the sleeping infant. He caresses her face before looking back at Rebecca. "She's the most precious little girl in the world," he tells her, his heart filling with love already. "I just can't believe that I'm a father."

"And I'm a mother," Rebecca replies to him. "It seems surreal, huh?"

"I wish I could have been with you during the labour," he reveals to her as he sits on her bed. "I wish I had been more supportive. She's my daughter too."

"I know," Rebecca says as she puts some hair behind her ear. "I don't know what I was thinking."

"I blame Melissa," he tells her as their eyes lock. "She's probably feeding you all these lies about me. And, that's why I've done something."

"What have you done?" she asks him, worried about what he is going to say.

"I've filed a restraining order against her," Cory reveals to her. "Your mother isn't allowed to be near our child."

***

"How are you feeling?" Melissa asks Caroline, who is resting in a bed in a private room that Melissa had arranged for her. Melissa knows that Caroline needs to recover from having the baby but if anyone saw her, their plan could be ruined. This is why Melissa purposely obtained the private room for Caroline. No one can know who really gave birth today.

Caroline looks up from the bed, her eyes red from tears. She can't believe that she gave birth a little bit early, but that she hasn't even seen her child. She knew that she was a part of this plan to get revenge on her brother Liam's death, but the fact that she is away from her child now, makes her heart ache. She had no idea that it would be this difficult.

"Caroline? What is it? You're not saying anything," Melissa observes to her the long moment of silence. "What's wrong?"

Caroline turns her head away from Melissa as another tear falls down her cheek. "I…" she says through her tears. "I miss my baby."

Melissa gets a stern look on her face. "You're not changing your mind about the plan are you?" Melissa asks her as she moves over to the bedside so she can look the younger woman in the eyes. "Because we've worked so long and hard at this for you to back out now; we've come too far now."

Caroline looks her in the eyes. "How can you be so cruel? You never gave up your children, did you?"

"No," Melissa replies to her quickly. "But, I never made a deal with someone to give my up children either. Think about your brother, for crying out loud!"

"Liam is dead," Caroline whispers back to her. "And he's never coming back. But my baby, she's alive and well…"

"Do not back out of this now," Melissa's eyes zero in on Caroline's. "Or, I will make you regret it."

***

Robbie looks over at Dominick as he takes a sip of his coffee, as they await some kind of word about Leah. After the woman in Santa Barbara admitted that she couldn't remember all of the details of her life, everyone decided to quickly come back to Twin Peaks so Shane could look at Leah and determine if she's still injured or what the chances of her memory coming back is. Everyone involved, however, is still reeling from the fact that Leah is alive. After the explosion in Lake Tahoe a couple of years ago, no one believed that this day could be possible.

"I can't help but think about something," Victoria announces to Robbie, Dominick, Jeff and Felicia. She, maybe more than anyone, can't say that she's thrilled that Leah is back. She saw the way Robbie was looking at her with love in his eyes, when they embraced at the winery. After everything her and Robbie have been through the last couple of years, this is the last thing that their relationship needed. At the same time, however, she can't be upset that this woman is back in their lives … if it's really Leah.

"What are you thinking?" Felicia asks her, curious by her words. "I'm sure, like you, we all still have a million questions."

Victoria arches her eyebrow. "I know," she replies to her. "But what if this woman isn't Leah at all."

"What do you mean?" Dominick asks her out of confusion.

"I mean," Victoria begins to tell her. "Frederick brainwashed Felicia for months into believing she didn't have feelings for Dominick. He's had Leah at the winery for two years; who knows what kind of information he has been feeding her."

"I hate to say this," Robbie chimes in. "But maybe Victoria is right. Shane is with her right now running some tests, I'm sure a simple DNA test can be added to the list. We have to know if this is real or not."

Dominick sighs and looks over at Felicia, who nods in agreement. "You're right," Dominick nods back to them. "Frederick is capable of almost anything. He's proved that with Felicia and again with his torrid past with Jemma Davenport. I'll request the DNA test."

Before Dominick can leave the room, Tyler emerges at the doorway. "Mom, Dad," he says out loud. "Is it true? Is my sister alive?"

"Oh Tyler," Felicia rushes into her sons arms, as tears fall from her eyes. "I'm so glad you're here! I will fill you in on everything, but you have to brace yourself for the most unbelievable of stories."

Scene Two - The Victors Mansion; Vinny, Daisy & Jemma's Home

"I'm so glad to be home," Daisy admits to Vinny as she walks over to the bar in the living room and pours herself a glass of wine. She knows that it is early in the day but she is still dealing with the fact that Jemma admitted that she is her mother, and Frederick is her father, after Frederick forced himself on her years ago. Of course, Frederick is claiming that he seduced her. She just can't believe that the woman she's thought of as her Aunt for all of these years is actually her mother and that's a product of rape. She feels like her entire life has been a lie of sorts.

"I know you are," Vinny comes up to his new wife. "I hope you know that anything you need, I'm here for you. I'm no stranger to family drama."

Daisy turns around and kisses him on the lips. "How did I get so lucky to marry such a wonderful man?"

Vinny grins back to her. "I'm the lucky one," he tells her. "And I meant what I said, anything you need to help you through this, I'm here."

"I hope I ain' interruptin' anything," Jemma announces to the newlyweds as she comes into living room. Jemma studies her daughter's face for a moment, trying to get a read on how Daisy is actually doing. She recalls their last night in Santa Barbara, Daisy told her that she just needed time. Jemma is hoping that enough time has passed that Daisy, and she will be able to forgive her and they can move on with their lives. That's all that Jemma wants now.

"You're not interrupting," Vinny replies to her. "I was just telling my wife that I have to head into the office," he continues to say before he looks at Daisy. "See you later?"

"Love you," she tells him before he leaves the room, leaving the mother and daughter alone.

"I have to tell ya, I'm real glad to be home," Jemma tells Daisy as she moves over to the bar and pourself a glass a of water. "A bit early to be drinkin, ain' it?" she observes the glass of wine.

"Don't you dare try to mother me now," Daisy sternly replies as she grabs her glass and takes another drink of her wine. "You can't just come into my life as my mother now and expect everything to be alright."

"I wasn' tryin' that, Miss Daisy," Jemma tries to defend herself. "I wanna do whatever will make this easier on you. You gotta believe that."

"Do you mean that?"

Jemma nods back to her. "Of course I mean that."

"Then move out," Daisy shocks her mother. "I need space and you living here isn't going to help."

"But…"

"No but's, Jemma," Daisy tells her. "I have some errands to run and when I get back, I want you gone."

Scene Three - The Pampa Grill

"Hey, I'm glad you called me," Adam tells Robin as he arrives at her table and sits across from his friend. "It felt like it had been awhile since I saw you."

Robin picks up her glass of wine and takes a drink of it. "No one likes to drink a bottle of wine by themselves," she replies to him. "And, I realized we hadn't seen each other in a while as well. I wanted to see you."

Adam takes a sip of the wine that Robin got them before he looks back at her. "You wanted to see me?" he asks her with a sly grin on his face. "What's going on?"

"We should start with the good news," she replies to him. "I met your son, Max."

"You did?" Adam asks in surprise. "How did that happen?"

"He came to Robertson Enterprises," she informs him. "Apparently, he's into photography and he asked me for a job."

Adam looks back in continued surprise. "He mentioned to me that he was hoping to do something positive with his life. I guess fashion photography is what he had in mind. What did you say to him?"

Robin looks back at him. "I knew you'd want him to have a chance," she replies to him. "So, I agreed to give him an interview tomorrow morning."

"Thank you for doing that," Adam tells her. "Don't give him the job if he's not right for it but I appreciate you giving him the chance," he says before he takes a sip of his wine. "I'm almost scared about the bad news now."

Robin sighs and looks back at him. "It's Cory and Rebecca," she begins to tell him. "They've had their baby."

Adam reaches over and grabs her hand, knowing she's been dreading this moment. "How are you holding up?"

"I'm fine," she lies to him as she feels tears swell in her eyes. "You know the worse part? They had a girl."

"I'm so sorry Robin," he tells her. "I know the baby you lost was a girl."

"I know it's silly," she replies to him. "I don't know why I'm so upset."

"Because you loved him," he continues to support her. "And she's your sister. It's only natural for you to be upset by this. Not to mention, what you went through with your own baby."

Robin nods as a tear falls down her cheek. "Thanks for listening to me," she tells him as their eyes lock.

"Always Robin," he whispers back to her. "Always."

Scene Four - The Black House; Helen, Dawn & Barbara's Home

"I'm coming!" Helen calls out from the kitchen after she hears the doorbell ring. She has no idea who it could be, but she was just in the middle of pouring herself a cup of tea. She opens the door and sees Chris standing on the other side of the door. "Chris, you're home!"

"In the flesh," he smirks back at her as he comes up and kisses her on the lips. "And, my oh my, have I missed you."

"I missed you too," she grins back to him as he hands run down his shirt.

"Did you?" he asks, lust fill his eyes. "Cause, I could show you how much I've missed you," he tells her as his lips find her neck. "Are you home alone?"

"Yea," she manages to say in between soft moans.

"Perfect, let's go upstairs," he tells her as they shut the front door and start moving up the stairs quickly, both wanting each other desperately.

Just as they reach the top of the stairs, Dawn opens the front door and comes inside the house. She sees her mother and Chris rushing off to the bedroom and she rolls her eyes. She hates that her mother is moving on with Chris Michaels, instead of making her marriage to Adam work.

"I can't stay here," she whispers to herself. "Not while that's going on upstairs," she says quickly leaving without seen or heard by her mother.

Scene Five - The Sugarbowl

"That was some trip, huh?" Andy tells Donovan as the friends sit across from each other with a coffee and a latte. Andy recalls how a lot happened while they were in Santa Barbara, including the fact that they saw Lukas at his family home. Andy knows that Craig wasn't particularly pleased with the fact that Lukas was in Santa Barbara, still closeted from Frederick. He does wish, however, that Craig would have sown Lukas some more respect in his childhood home.

"It was," Donovan agrees with him. "I'm glad that the wedding's happened but at the same time, there seemed to be a lot of chaos around every turn."

"That's putting it mildly," Andy says with a chuckle. "I hope Lukas is doing alright. He went through a lot while we were there. With Craig coming down hard on him and then finding out about Daisy and Frederick; It couldn't have been easy."

Donovan finds himself nodding in agreement. "I wish Craig hadn't been so difficult with him," Donovan tells his friend. "But at the same time, I understand why he was upset. All Craig wanted was to have a boyfriend who was open and honest. But after everything that Frederick has done, I also understand Lukas' apprehension about coming out."

"That's why he needs us to be supportive," Andy tells Donovan. "Berating Lukas over his decisions isn't going to help him, it's going to make him feel even smaller than he already feels."

Donovan is about to reply, when something catches his eye walking by the coffeehouse outside. He points and Andy turns around. "Did you see that?" Donovan asks him as Andy turns back around. "It looked like Lukas."

Andy grins a little. "Maybe he's back in town," he tells his friend. "Maybe he's ready to come clean?"

Scene Six - Frederick's Office

Frederick sits at his desk looking over some files that have built up since he was away for so long in Santa Barbara. His mind, however, is not on the work in front of him. He still can't believe everything that happened while he was away. Nothing in his life is the same as before the trip, from the truth about Leah being alive to his past with Jemma being exposed. He still has no idea how it all unraveled so quickly.

"I won't continue to allow her to claim that I raped her," he whispers to himself, thinking about how Jemma indicated that he forced himself on her instead of the truth, which is that he seduced her all those years ago. "She won't get away with slandering my name."

"Talking to yourself?" a voice calls from the doorway of his office.

Frederick looks up and sees Daisy standing there. He can't help but feel glad to see her; he didn't know how his daughter would react to the news that he is her father; he hopes that her being there is a good sign for a potential relationship between the two of them. "Daisy, what a pleasant surprise, please come in."

"Pleasant surprise, huh?" she asks him as she comes into the office. "Do you know what is not a pleasant surprise? Finding out that your mother, whom you believed was your Aunt, was lying to you for years because your surprise father raped her and then paid her into silence."

"That's not what happened," he begins to protest to her.

"Save it," she cuts him off. "I came here to tell you one simple thing," she continues in a harsh voice. "You will never be my father, do you understand me? I only wish you were dead instead of standing in front of me."

"You don't mean that."

"Oh, I do," she whispers back to him. "You stay away from me and my family, or so help me God, I won't be responsible for my actions."

Scene Seven - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Has anyone heard from Paige?" Dominick asks the group, as they continue to wait for Shane to come back with some news about Leah.

"She was exhausted," Jeff replies to him. "She went home to sleep. I think the fact that Leah can't remember her is really bugging her."

"Of course it is," Felicia says back to him. "She has every right to be upset. She grieved her mother for a year, only for her to be alive but she doesn't remember her? I can't imagine how Paige is feeling right now."

"I just can't believe my sister is alive," Tyler tells them as he looks over at Felicia. "I didn't get to see her before the explosion, so this will be so nice to see her again. I have to get my head around all of this."

Before anyone else can say anything, Shane comes into the waiting room. "Shane, how is she? How's my wife?" Jeff asks, as Robbie looks back at him in surprise since Jeff just married Meggan.

"I did run a DNA test," Shane reveals to everyone. "It's a match with yours Dominick, this woman is in fact Leah. She is alive."

"Oh thank God," Felicia gasps. "I knew it was her when I saw her. I just had this feeling."

"What about her head injury?" Robbie asks Shane, needing to understand the memory loss.

Shane nods. "I can see swelling in the brain," he reveals to everyone. "It looks like she had it for a while," he continues to tell them. "I have placed her on medication to help reduce the swelling. This swelling could be the cause of the memory loss and because it's gone so long without proper treatment, there's no guarantee that it will come back."

"So what you're saying is that Leah may never remember?" Dominick asks the doctor.

"That's correct," Shane replies.

***

"You would threaten me at a time like this?" a horrified Caroline asks Melissa.

She nods back to her. "Nothing will come stop me from finishing this plan," Melissa whispers back to her.

Suddenly, Caroline gets a worried look on her face as Melissa arches her eye brow. "What is it? You look worried about something."

"Something is wrong," Caroline replies to her quickly. "Something is wrong with my baby, I can feel it. I…I need to see her!"

***

"You did what?" A shocked Rebecca asks Cory, having just learned that he ordered a restraining order against Melissa. "How could you do that?"

"Easily after everything she's done to me," Cory replies, as he turns to look at the baby. "Look, I don't want to fight with you. Not when we have this beautiful baby to celebrate."

He stands up and moves towards the child again, his face quickly turning into worry. "My God," he says.

"What's wrong?" Rebecca asks as she sits up in the bed.

"She's not breathing," Cory yells. "Our baby isn't breathing!"
