The River Rock Casino

Robin enters the casino and can see many people playing the various gambling games. It is rather late, so she isn't surprised that there are still so many people at the casino, but she is there to see Antonio, so she makes a beeline for his office. She can't help but recall how earlier in the evening, Sophie visited her and was rather distraught as she is still grieving Cory. What threw Robin for a loop, however, was the fact that Sophie continued to ask her if she was ready to move on; she can't help but wonder if Sophie saw her and Antonio together when he asked her out for dinner.

She opens the door and sees Antonio sitting behind his desk looking over some files. "I hope it's not too late," she says as she moves into the office.

Antonio gets a smile on his face at the sight of the beautiful woman entering his office. "It is never too late to see you," he says as he moves up to her and kisses her cheek. "What brings you by?"

Robin takes a deep breath back to him. "I saw Cory's daughter earlier; and Sophie, she was still so upset about the loss of her father. I…I guess I just wanted to see a friendly face after the visit."

"I am sorry that she is still struggling with his death," Antonio replies to her. "I hope she knows that these things take time; his presence will always be felt."

"I tried to tell her that," Robin nods back to him. "She…she kept asking me if I had moved on. I don't know if she saw us together, you know when you kissed my hand earlier. But now I am feeling like I am betraying Cory."

"You are doing no such thing," Antonio looks back into her eyes. "You're still alive, Robin, you have every right to continue to live your life. Sophie, she's struggling, but she will get there one day. In the meantime, you can't stop with your own life."

"You know," she smiles back to him. "That's why I came to see you; you always know the right things to say to me."

Antonio chuckles back to her as he pulls her into a hug. "Anytime my beautiful Robin, anytime," he holds her closer, realizing that getting rid of Cory with the plane crash was one of the best things he has ever decided to do.

Adam's Townhouse

The silence between Adam and Helen is deafening as they stand facing one another in the living room. The only sounds that can be heard are the crackling of the fire in the fireplace and the soft jazz music that is playing. Adam has arranged a romantic dinner for the two of them, and he just proposed to her with an original Rockwell Mining diamond ring, but Helen just turned him down. He feels gutted as he thought this would be a magic evening. Instead, it is his worst nightmare coming true.

"I'm sorry," Helen finally breaks the silence between the two of them. "You went to all this trouble to set up this beautiful evening, and I…I just ruined it."

Adam sighs while Helen picks up her champagne and takes a large sip of it. "I thought that after everything we went through last year with Dale and Dawn and then when I told you I loved you on New Year's…"

"I know, I know…" Helen waves her hand back to him. "But don't you see? That's all why I can't marry you again, Adam! Last year, I…I accepted a proposal from a man that tried to kill our daughter! I…I don't think that I could put myself through that again…the last thing I want for me, for us, for our family…is to be hurt again. So, I stand by my decision. I am really sorry but I can't marry you."

Adam stands there stunned as Helen sets the champagne flute back on the table and rushes out of the living room. Adam runs his hands through his hair when he hears the front door of his townhouse close shut as Helen has left, leaving him alone. He picks up his glass of champagne and slams down quickly in one eager gulp, wondering where he goes from here.

The Calimo Mansion

Kim slowly walks through the living room of the Calimo mansion soaking in the sights as it is her first evening home after being in the hospital for weeks following her shooting. She almost can't believe that she is back because, from what she was told, she was close to death for weeks. But now she is back, and married to Robbie. She looks at her wedding ring and smiles at the sight.

"Who would have thought that Robbie and I would find our way back to one another after all this time?" she asks herself in a whisper. "But before all this happened, I was engaged to Greg. I can't help but wonder how he is feeling about this. He must be devastated."

Before she can say anything else, she hears the doorbell ring. "I'll get it Rosario," she calls out as she scurries into the foyer, where she opens the door. "Greg, come in."

Greg looks at his former fiancé and moves into the foyer. "Thanks, it's cold out there tonight."

"Do you want a drink to warm you up?" Kim asks they as they move into the living room and she moves to the bar to pour him a scotch. "Here, this should help."

"Thanks," Greg smiles back to her as he takes a sip of the scotch. "I heard that you were released from the hospital; I just wanted to come and see you for myself, and here you are."

"Here I am," she giggles back to him. "I know you and the rest of my friends and family have been praying for this, so thank you. I really appreciate it."

"I love you, Kim," Greg looks back at her. "Of course, I want you to be well. But I have to ask you something, something that we spoke about in the hospital."

"Let me guess, about my marriage to Robbie?"

Greg nods back to her uneasily. "We were engaged to be married before all of this happened, Kim. Robbie only married you because he thought you would want that before you died, but you didn't die and now you can make up your own mind. So tell me, do you want to stay married to Robbie? Or do you want to come back to me? Have you made up your mind?"

The Pink Flamingo at the River Rock Casino

Madeline sits at the bar of the restaurant with a vodka martini in front of her. Her mind is racing about her visit with Andy earlier in the evening, where they ended up bickering about Robbie and Kim's marriage; Madeline was upset because Robbie annulled their marriage to marry Kim before he died, but he hasn't come back to her yet while Andy was on the side of making his sister happy. She hates that she is fighting with Andy because they have been through so much together, but she can't help but feel strongly about this.

She looks to her left when someone else appears at the bar and she is surprised to see Robbie standing there. "Robbie, what are you doing here?"

Robbie looks back at Madeline for a moment. "Kim left the hospital today," he reveals to her. "She wanted some of her favorites from here, so I'm just picking up some food."

"I heard about Kim when I was at the hospital earlier," she admits to him. "You must be thrilled."

"This is what we have been praying for," Robbie nods back to her. "It's a miracle that she is out of the hospital when she was knocking on death's door for weeks."

"Now that she is out of the woods," Madeline uneasily starts to respond to him. "Does that mean that you're going to annul your marriage to her and come back to me? Remember, you told me that you'd come back to me once Kim died … only she didn't die Robbie, and I'm still here waiting for my husband to return!"

Robbie gulps heavily back to her. "I…I don't know," he admits to her. "I'm just trying to take this one day at a time."

"Well, that's not good enough for me!" Madeline hisses back to him. "I want my life back! I want my husband back! So, do it Robbie, leave Kim and come back to me, like you said you would!"

Puerto Vallarta

Donovan, Meggan and Lukas sit on a patio at one of the local restaurants that is in the old town of Puerto Vallarta. They all have refreshments next to them and a plate of nachos that they are sharing, as they've all had long days.

"How'd it go at the police station?" Meggan asks Donovan before she puts one of the chips in her mouth.

Donovan uneasily looks back at Lukas and they make eye contact for a moment. Donovan can feel the tension between him and his estranged husband as they have been blaming one another for Jasper kidnapping Olly; he just hopes that they are able to, finally, find their son.

"I felt feeling more hopeful than ever before that we will find Olly," Donovan reveals to them.

"Why? What did the cops say?" Lukas asks him before he takes a sip of his beer.

"I met with a detective, Sergio Lopez," Donovan begins to tell them. "He's also gay, and he recognized Jasper from the picture I showed him."

"He recognized Jasper? From where? Grindr?" Lukas asks him quickly.

Donovan rolls his eyes back to his husband. "No, not from a hook-up app," Donovan snips. "Apparently, he saw Jasper at one of the local clubs, The Palm, one night. Sergio noted that it was dark inside, but he thought he saw Jasper."

"Well, what the hell are we waiting for? Let's go to the Palm!" Lukas responds to him.

"No, we can't," Donovan stops him from leaving. "We have to wait for the police to take action; if we go on our own, we have no idea what danger could be lurking. Jasper might be armed."

"Donovan is right," Meggan tells her brother, who finally sits back down. "We have to take the lead of the authorities on this one, Lukas. Donovan, did Sergio say anything to you about when we could go to the Palm?"

"Tomorrow," Donovan nods back to her. "He said he's making arrangements with the club for tomorrow night."

"I hope that this works," Lukas sighs. "Because I need to see Olly again; I want my son back more than anything else in the world."

The Cascade Apartments; Cassie & Max's Home

Cassie looks into the large mirror that is in the hallway of her apartment and she fixes her short, tight red dress. She recalls how she got a message from Jacob earlier in the evening asking her to talk; she got very excited as she thought that it meant that Jacob had, finally, decided to return to her and leave Isabelle since Natasha was faking her illness last year. Once she told Jacob to come over, she put on her favorite red dress because she wants to ensure he can see what he has been missing.

"That must be Jacob now," she purses her lips together as she hears a knock on the door. She moves quickly over to the door and smiles at the sight of Jacob on the other side. "Jacob, please come in."

"Thanks," Jacob says as he moves into the living room of the apartment. "I am assuming that Carter is fast asleep already?"

"He is," Cassie replies to her. "We are all alone, we have the place to ourselves, Jacob."

Jacob turns and looks back at her. "I see, well, look, it's late, Cassie," he tells her. "I will be back first thing in the morning because what we have to talk about is very important."

"Why don't you just tell me now?"

"I was headed back to the mansion when I got your text," he reveals to her. "You get a good nights rest and I'll be back in the morning, okay?"

"Okay, if you insist," she purses her lips together. "I will be waiting for you Jacob, so don't keep me waiting too long."

The River Rock Casino

Antonio starts to close his laptop as he is finally finished working for the evening. As he stands up, he can't help but think of his visit with Robin earlier; he is so pleased with how close they are getting. He still believes that having Cory killed in the plane crash was the best decision he's made because he is now, slowly, getting to be the man in Robin's life.

He looks over at the door to his office when he hears it open. "Isabelle, it is late for you to be here," he says as his daughter moves into the office. "Is everything alright?"

"Hi Daddy," Isabelle says as she moves up to him and hugs him. "I hope you have a few minutes for me? I know it's late."

"You know I can always make time for you," he winks back to her. "What brings you by?"

Isabelle gulps back to him. "I have to tell you something," she replies to him quickly. "But before I do, I need you to not freak out."

Antonio arches his eyebrow back to her. "You have my attention, sweetheart, what is going on?"

"I'm…I'm pregnant," she says before she gulps back to him. "I'm going to have Jacob's baby."

Antonio looks back at her in surprise. "I…I don't know what to say."

"Say that you're happy for me? Say that you're looking forward to being a grandfather?"

Antonio pulls her into another hug and holds her. "Of course, I am excited," he tells her. "I just want to ensure that you, and Jacob, know what this entails. Having a child, it's a big responsibility."

"I know and Jacob and I have talked and we want to put the baby first, that's our main priority."

Antonio smiles back to her. "Me? A grandfather? Can you believe it?" he chuckles back to her.

"I can and you'll spoil my baby so much," she giggles back to him, thrilled that her father has had a good reaction to her news.

Tyler's Townhouse

Tyler sets a package down on the coffee table in his living room and takes a deep breath. He recalls how earlier he had a realization that Frederick has faked his death before, and he wondered if he faked his death again, along with Felicia. Once he had that thought, he made a few calls and he was able to get the fire marshal's file on the fire at Raven's Meadow. He has it in front of him; he has no idea what he will find, but he needs to know if his mother is actually alive or not.

He slowly opens the package and pulls out the file and set it in front of him. "Okay, let's see what I can find out about this fire," he whispers to himself. "Because if Frederick did fake Felicia's death, I have to find out and save her. I have to find out the truth about my mother, before it ends up being too late."
