The Sugarbowl

Max takes a sip of his hot chocolate while he looks at his phone. He sighs heavily when he realizes that he still doesn't have a message from Abby; he was under the impression that Abby went over to Andrew's apartment in hopes of seducing him tonight. Abby was supposed to send him a message when it was happening so he could rush over there, preferably with Paige, so Paige could see the two of them together and then dump Andrew for cheating on her. Of course, the end game is that Andrew would end up with Abby and Max would end up with Paige; he just hopes that Abby is working her magic so their plan can and will work.

"What is taking so long Abby?" he asks himself, as he opens his phone again. He opens his messages and quickly types a message to his friend. "What is your ETA?" he asks out loud, as Paige returns to the booth, having used the restroom.

"ETA on what?" she slides into the other side of the booth. "What is going on, Max?"

Max gulps as he looks back over to her. He hates lying to her but he knows that he can't tell her the truth about what is going on. "Uh, I was just sending my Mom a message. She was going to have dinner with me tomorrow, I was just asking for update on time frames. You know, her schedule can get crazy as a doctor."

"That makes sense," she smiles back to him. "It's really sweet that you and your mom are so close."

"The months she was away really sucked," Max admits to her. "I'd like to think I am close with my mom. Likely because she raised me on her own."

"You know," Paige tells him as they lock eyes with one another. "They often say how a guy treats his mom is how he will treat his girlfriend."

Max blushes back to her. "I've heard that."

"Well, from where I'm sitting your girlfriend will be one lucky girl."

Andrew's Apartment

Andrew and Abby continue to dance to the song playing on her phone. She looks into his eyes and then slowly pulls him into closer to her. She can't believe that everything is going so well; she arrived at his condo to tell him that she was thinking about going to school, to her surprise, he said he was also thinking of the same thing. They seemingly bonded over their future similar goals and now they are dancing together.

"You're a really good dancer," she whispers into his ear, hoping to continue with her plan to seduce him.

Andrew closes his eyes for a moment and can't help but enjoy the way she feels in his arms. He opens his eyes again. "You are too," he replies to her, suddenly thinking about Paige. "But, we should stop this."

"Dancing? Why would we stop?"

He leaves her embrace and looks at her. "You know why Abby," he tells her. "I'm with Paige."

"So, you're not allowed to dance with another friend?"

"I probably shouldn't," he admits to her. "Look, things are going well with Paige and I, I don't want to do anything that could ruin what we have."

Abby sighs back to him. "That's fine," she tells him, trying to hide her disappointment. "But, we are friends. I thought we really made progress today on our friendship."

"We did," he agrees with her. "I'm just saying…"

"No, that's fine," she bites her lip to make herself seem like she is going to cry.

"Hey, I'm sorry," Andrew notices the tears swelling in her eyes.

"It's okay," a tear falls down her cheek. "I'm being stupid."

"No, you're not. Tell me what's wrong? We are friends Abby, you can tell me anything. So out with it, what's wrong?"

Donovan's SUV

"I haven't heard back from Victoria yet," Eva tells her son as he drives towards the Calimo cabin. In the backseat, Shane listens in as the three of them head to the Calimo cabin so they can confront Victoria about her odd behavior. They know that something is going on with her; they just have to confirm that her alter egos are not back as Barbara is dead and Craig almost died; they can't afford anyone else to get hurt. They knew if they left Twin Peaks, Victoria would have fewer excuses to dodge their questions.

"I suppose if she is already at the cabin her cell phone service might be dodgy," Donovan replies to his mother. "Try not to worry about anything; we will get to the bottom of this."

"I hope you're right," Eva says back to him, trying not to worry. Eva realizes that she has been one of the ones that she has been opposed to the idea that Victoria's alter egos are back but after Felicia learned of Barbara's death and she was convinced that Victoria had something to do with her death and then learning of Craig's misdiagnosis of HIV, she wonders if it could be true. If it is yeas, it would be her worst nightmare come true;

"We are all in this together Eva," Shane tells her. "We will figure out what is happening here. We have no other choice."

"I just can't shake this feeling that something is wrong," Eva admits to them. "We need to get to the cabin; we have to make sure Victoria is okay."

The Calimo Cabin

Brandy comes out of the kitchen of the Calimo cabin with a glass of red wine in her hand. She moves in front of the fire and gets warm for a moment. The regular heating hasn't kicked in yet, so she is glad she was able to start the fire in the cabin so at least there is warmth in the cabin.

She decided to have a glass of wine to try to calm her nerves before Shane, Eva & Donovan arrive as she knows she will have to put on the performance of her life to make them believe that she is really Victoria. She doesn't know how exactly she can do this but she knows that she has to try or everything she has worked towards will fall apart.

"I have to be strong," she says as she looks into the flames. "I can do this; I just have to convince them that I had nothing to do with Barbara's death or Craig's misdiagnosis."

She turns around when she hears the doorknob slowly being turned on the front door of the cabin. She looks in surprise when she sees Vinny appear as she was expecting her Mom, brother and ex-husband.

"Vinny, what on earth are you doing here?" she asks him.

"Victoria, hey. It's Brett, not Vinny," Brett tells her, surprised to see her. He hasn't seen her in years. "I was driving to my family mansion but it was getting dark so I remembered the cabin was up here. I didn't think anyone was going to be here so I stopped by. I was going to leave in the morning."

Brandy feels the blood from her face drain. "Brett? You're out of jail?"

"I am," he moves into the cabin. "On parole."

Suddenly, Brandy shuts her eyes as memories start to come flooding back into Victoria's head. Years ago, Victoria learned the horrible truth: Dave and Brett were masquerading as Vinny and were holding him hostage. At the cabin that they are standing in, Dave shot Victoria hoping to kill her to keep her quiet.

"Victoria, are you okay?"

Brandy opens her eyes and looks at the man in front of her. She doesn't know if he's telling her the truth or not; how can she be sure that he is Brett? All three men look exactly the same. What if, somehow, Dave is alive and he has come back to finish what he started?
"You stay away from me," she glares at him. "Don't move another muscle, I'm warning you."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Damn it, I am losing my patience with all of this!" Dominick grits his teeth together as he looks over at Simona as they stand in a waiting room of the hospital. "Bob needs to wake up so he can be arrested already."

"I can appreciate you wanting justice, Mr. Robertson," Simona replies to him. "But, we do have to wait until Bob is awake and is given a clean bill of health before we can take him anywhere."

"This is outrageous!"

"I know that you want him to pay for what he has done to Felicia," Simona tells him. "I really do understand that. But, if you want a conviction to stand up in court, we have to do everything by the book. If we try to jump the gun, Bob and his lawyers will be able to throw our case out."

"I know you're right," Dominick runs his hands through his hair. "I am just tired of all of this. I want it to be over already."

Simona uneasily nods back to him. "Like I said, we just have to be patient."

"I'm going to go see if there is any update on his progress," Dominick moves past her. "I'll keep in touch."

"Just don't do anything that could ruin the case…" Simona replies to him, but Dominick has already left the room and doesn't hear her plead. She sighs heavily. "What a mess this is turning out to be."

***

"What do you mean he woke up?" Natasha asks Kim as they stand near by Bob's hospital room door. Robbie and Natasha are just hearing from Kim that their father woke up for a brief moment. They are just upset that they didn't get a chance to see him and speak with him.

"It was very brief," Kim wipes her damp eyes. "I was with him after Simona and Dominick announced that they had a warrant for his arrest."

"I still can't believe that they got that issued," Robbie spits. "My Dad had nothing to do with that fire. And you, you know that, don't you Kim?"

"Actually," Kim replies to them as Natasha and Robbie look at one another. "He confessed to me when he was awake."

"He did no such thing!" Natasha attacks her. "You are lying, the way you always do."

Kim feels her eyes swell with water as she thinks back to Bob telling her to tell everyone that he started the fire at the boutique. She refused but before he could give her another option, he slipped back into the coma.

"I knew you wouldn't believe me," she whispers back to her stepchildren. "But it is the truth. He said something else to me. Something that makes me believe he won't make it."

"What else could he have said?" Robbie asks her, as Natasha throws her hands up in the air.

"He said he has been seeing Sofia," she reveals. "She's calling him to join her."

"No," Natasha whispers back to her. "He won't die! My father can't die! Not without clearing his name first," she says as Kim locks eyes with her.

***

Dominick appears at the end of the hallway and sees Robbie, Natasha and Kim all talking. He slowly walks down the hallway until he gets to the door of Bob's hospital room. He moves inside quickly as Bob's family was too busy talking to notice him there.

Dominick appears of Bob's comatose body and looks at his enemy. He almost can't believe the sight of Bob in this state; he's never seen Bob so weak and lifeless.

"Well, isn't this something," he whispers to Bob. "I don't think I've ever seen you looking so pathetic, and that's saying something considering all the times we've seen each other at our worst."

"The fact is though, Bob," Dominick moves closer to Bob's bed. "I know what you did to my company and to Felicia and you won't get away with it. I know I have been pressing Simona to arrest you, but you know what would be just as good? If you die! Just stop breathing, Bob. Give up. Give in to all these injuries."

Bob doesn't move as his arch rival continues to taunt him. A bright light appears to Bob, however, and he once again is greeted by Sofia's presence.

"Bob, darling," she calls out to him, her ghostly presence hovers next to him. "The time is now. Come with me."

Dominick suddenly stops talking to Bob and looks around the room, overwhelmed by the feeling he has inside of him. He hasn't felt this feeling in years, not sense he was with Sofia last. He can't place it, but he can feel her. And, after everything that he and Sofia went through, he would know her presence anywhere.

"Sofia? Are you here?" he calls out. He shakes his head quickly. "It's impossible, I don't know why I felt her presence just now."

"Come on Bob," Sofia calls out to Bob as she reaches out for his hand.

Dominick suddenly looks in horror as Bob's monitor's start beeping rapidly. "What is going on?" he asks himself, as he suddenly worries about being in Bob's hospital room. "Bob? Are you okay? Bob?"
