in Circles" Our Lady Peace
Scene One - Twin Peaks International Airport
Andy enters the airport terminal and looks around as he tries to locate JC. He recalls how Trenyce told him that JC was going to leave town because he was feeling like it was too painful to stay in Twin Peaks because of his affair with Reese last winter. Andy hates that he has caused JC so much pain that he wants to leave town because he knows that he wants his relationship with him to work, despite JC dumping him and moving out, so he is at the airport hoping to stop JC from walking away from them and their relationship.
As he searches for JC, Andy wonders where his boyfriend would even go. JC did just get an offer to be in Instyle magazine, so maybe he would be heading to LA? Andy continues to try to rack his brain thinking about where JC would be in the airport. He cant lose him, not without a fight first.
Finally, he sees JC from behind as he sits in a chair. He slowly walks up to him, JC? Andy calls out causing JC to turn and see Andy approaching him.
What are you doing here? JC asks, dumbfounded that Andy has found him. He wonders how Andy knew he was leaving.
Im here to see you. To stop you from leaving town. I I dont want you to leave, Andy admits to him as he sits next to him in the empty chair, hoping that JC will hear him out.
JC turns his face from Andy and tries to conceal his tears. He hates that Andy still has an effect on him, but he cant deny that he does still love him. He fell hard for Andy. He just cant believe that Andy would lie to him for months about his involvement with Reese, despite JCs constant questioning of their relationship. He doesnt know if he can trust Andy anymore, and without trust in a relationship how does it survive? JC has asked himself that very question ever since he learned the truth from Reese a few weeks ago.
I cant stay Andy, JC finally replies to Andy. Im leaving town. Im leaving you. I need to get away from all the lies and the hurt that you have caused me. What we had, he says as his eyes finally meet Andys, Its over. We cant go back. We can only go forward.
Andy feels his heart break inside his chest hearing the words from JC. He grabs his hand, Please JC, hear me out. I promise you that things can be different this time. I promise you that we can make this work.
Scene Two - Wild Night
Reese opens the door to the club and looks around before he quickly spots Craig sitting in a booth and he makes his way over to the booth. He hasnt seen Craig in a few weeks because he has been busy with his photo shoot over at Robertson Enterprises, and Craigs schedule as a doctor is always pretty busy. He is happy that he is getting to see Craig today for that reason, and he hopes that their relationship could continue to grow. Since theyve been casually seeing each other, things have been going so slowly, to the point where they havent even had sex yet. Reese would love to move to that next step with Craig, as he finds him extremely attractive. Plus, now that he has made it clear to Andy that its over between them, he wants to move on.
Hey stranger, Reese smiles as he approaches the booth and sits across from Craig.
Craig looks up from his drink and smiles over at Reese, Hey, thanks for meeting me today. It was nice that we both had the same scheduling for a change.
I know, right? Reese replies as he takes of the drink that Craig had ordered for him. I have to tell you though, Ive loved this modelling gig at Robertson. Ive had so much for fun doing it. I never thought I would be good at the modelling thing.
Why not? Craig asks him, surprised by his admission. I mean, youre gorgeous for starters, Im not surprised that youre a natural.
Reese feels himself blush and reaches across the table and grabs Craigs hand. Thanks. That means a lot to me, coming from you.
Does it? Craig asks quickly back to him.
Why dont we get out of here? Reese replies to him, not being subtle with his come on. My sister is at work today, we would have my house all to ourselves.
Craig arches his eyebrow and smiles over at him. He cant deny that hes attracted to Reese, but his mind keeps going back to a few weeks ago when Andy stopped by his office and asked him where things stood between himself and Reese. He wonders if the exs are truly over each other because it doesnt appear that they are. The last thing Craig wants to do is get involved with someone that wants another guy. He doesnt have the time to invest in someone that doesnt want it back.
You dont know how good that actually sounds, Craig admits to him. But I dont think that its a good idea.
Reese arches his eyebrow, Why not? Weve been seeing each other for some time now.
Yes, but what is really happening between us Reese? Craig asks him. Andy came to see me a few weeks ago and was wondering where the two of us stood.
I cant believe he did that! Reese says getting upset. He doesnt know why Andy continues to bud into his life. He has no right to know whats going on with me and you or us. Im sorry that he did that.
Craig gives him half a smile, I think its pretty clear that the two of you have feelings for each other Reese. You can try to deny it all you want, but theres a lot of unfinished business between the two of you. Youre not going to be good relationship material until you get that resolved.
Ouch, Reese replies to him, taking another drink of is beverage as the last comment stung. What are you saying?
I dont think we should see each other anymore. I asked you here to end things. I hope you know that I want the best for you, I just dont think Im the best for you. Not right now anyways.
Reese doesnt know how to reply to Craig. He feels sad that he never got the chance to explore the relationship with Craig because he seems like such a great guy, but he wonders if maybe what he is saying is true. Maybe he does have unfinished business with Andy. Im sorry Craig. I really am.
Me too, he replies to him as they both finish their drinks in an awkward silence.
Scene Three - Robertson Enterprises; Dominicks Office
Wow, these pictures look amazing, Trenyce gushes to Dominick and Donovan as they sit at a table in Dominicks office reviewing the final pictures of the Blooming Rose launch, that happened the other day. I cant believe how good Reese looks in my clothes! she gushes. And Robin is so beautiful.
Dominick smiles back to her, Youre a talented young woman Trenyce, I knew that this would work out to be a huge success. How are things coming along with the actual clothes for the fashion show.
Everything is pretty much done, she reveals to them. I just have to fit Robin in one more dress and we are done.
Perfect, Donovan chimes in. That means, all we have to do is really worry about the set up and the day of events Dominick. I really think we have all of our ducks in a row.
Dominick flips some papers in the file, We have a DJ? he asks as Donovan nods his head yes. Food? Beverages? Press releases?
Yes to all, Donovan tells him as he feels the excitement grow. Im telling you Dominick we really have nothing to worry about.
Dominick stands up and walks to the window of his office. He puts his hand on his face and wonders if thats true. He cant help but think that Bob will still try to do something to ruin the Blooming Rose launch. He knows that Bob has it out for him and his company because he is rivalling Roboto, and the fact that his launch his dedicated to Sofia must drive Bob even crazier. If only he could know for sure if Bob wasnt going to pull anything, he would feel much easier about the launch.
I know that youre nervous Dominick, but I think Donovan is right, Trenyce tells him, causing Dominick to come back to present time. I think we have made sure everything will go off perfectly.
Dominick turns and faces his employees, That very well may be, but theres a wild card in all of this.
Whats that? Trenyce asks, not sure what he is talking about.
Bob Calimo, Dominick replies. He cant be trusted.
Have you thought anymore about what I suggested to you? If there was a scandal of some kind that would take the lime light away from Bob and anything he tries to do to the Blooming Rose launch, it may help us out, Donovan tells them both.
Wait, what scandal? Trenyce asks them, not sure she is enjoying the switch of conversation.
We dont have a scandal yet, Donovan relays to her.
But if we did, nothing Bob said or did surrounding the Blooming Rose launch would be over shadowed, Dominick thinks outloud. If only there was something we could use, he says as he gets an idea. I think I will pay Bob a visit myself and see if I can fish out anything.
Do you think hell talk? Trenyce replies to her boss.
Probably not, but its worth a try.
Scene Four - The Sugarbowl
Thanks for agreeing to meet me, Natasha says to Kim, who is sitting across from her in a booth at the coffehouse. It has been awhile since weve actually had time to catch up, she tells her friend, which is true, but the real reason Natasha asked Kim out for coffee is because she hasnt been able to get it out of her mind that she saw Kim at the Calimo mansion the other day with Bob and they had clearly been out at the pool together. Natasha knows that Bob covered with some excuse, but something about the situation didnt sit well with her. She cant put her finger on it, but she hopes that by talking to her best friend, shell be able to understand what is going on. There was a tension, a weird awkwardness that she cant explain.
I know, Im sorry that its been so long, Kim replies o her, feeling slightly on edge. She knows that it was weird when Natasha saw her at the mansion the other day. Shes more grateful that Natasha showed up when she did and not sooner because she would have seen her and Bob making love by the pool. She shakes her head knowing that she cant tell Natasha the truth; not yet anyways. How are things with you and Shane?
Things are going well, Natasha tells her. He asked me to move in with him.
Kim gets a huge smile on her face, Thats fantastic news! Im so happy for you and him.
Thanks, Natasha laughs a little. I said no. Im not ready to take that step, you know? I just want to go slow still.
That makes sense, Kim replies to her. The last year and half have been very trying on you, with the entire Ryan and Cassie mess. And, of course, your mothers
I still think about her every day, Natasha cuts off Kim, thinking about Sofias death. I wish she was still here.
I know you do. Im sorry I havent been around more.
Its not your fault. Dont beat yourself up Kim. Youre a great friend, Natasha tells her, causing Kim to feel horrible about her current love life. So tell me about you. Any new men?
Kim laughs and gulps a little, Me? she asks as she pauses to take a drink of her coffee. No, Im just busy with the newspaper.
And spending time with my Dad? Whats up with that? Natasha asks quickly, getting to the real point that she invited Kim out for coffee.
Kim looks at Natasha and their eyes lock, Honestly Nat, your Dad has really had a hard time with Sofia being gone. I guess, I have been spending a lot of time with him lately. Ive tried to be there for him.
Natasha smiles and feels her eyes swell with water. Of course Kim was trying to help Bob, Natasha thinks to herself. She must have been caught off guard when Natasha showed up, hence the tension, Natasha thinks to herself. You really are a good friend Kim. Not only to me, but my entire family, Natasha tells her as she grabs her hand. Thank you.
Kim nervously smiles back, Anything for my best friend Nat. You know that.
Scene Five - MW Investigations
Madeline sits at her desk feeling like shes on cloud nine as Cory has agreed to give their relationship a real chance. She hasnt been able to stop smiling since he told her this at the Pampa Grill the other day on their lunch break. She has been wanting to make it official with Cory for so long, the fact that he has given it the okay makes her feel so great. She knows that there is still work to do because he still cares about Robin, but she has filed for divorce and she knows that she can help Cory mend his broken heart. As long as theyre together, they can make it work, she realizes.
Suddenly, theres a knock on her door and she sees Ron her assistant at the door. Ron, whats going on? she asks him as he enters the office.
I have something for you, he says as he passes her a file folder.
She takes the file and wonders what it is. What is this?
The file you asked me to get you. From Dr. Liam Fitzpatricks office, he tells her as he hears the phone ring on his desk. I have to grab that call.
She watches his leaves the office and she looks down at the file. She recalls asking Ron to try to get a file from Liams office in hopes of uncovering the real reason Dominick paid Liam the large sum of money all those months ago. She wonders if she really needs to have the file now because she knows that Cory has committed himself to her. She picks up the file and walks over to her filing cabinet. She places the folder in there and closes the cabinet drawer again. Maybe Ill need it one day, but not today, she says to herself as she sits back down.
Scene Six - The Towers, Floor Eight; Evas Condo
Will, have you seen my hospital name badge? Eva calls out as she rushes to get herself ready for the day. She has a meeting at the hospital in an hour or so and she is running late. Mostly, because she cant get her mind of the fact that she went to Madeline to help see if her ex is responsible for sending her the eerie letter that she got a few weeks ago. Will gave her the idea and she decided to pursue it because she knows if her ex has found her, she needs to know so she can protect herself. Still, she doesnt believe that it could actually be him as they havent been in touch for years. If its not him, then its someone else and hopefully Madeline can figure out who it is.
Here it is, Will comes up from behind her and passes it to her. You look great today, he smiles as she continues to fix her outfit in the mirror.
Thank you, she replies to him.
How did it go with Madeline? he asks her knowing that the note must be weighting on her mind.
As well as to be expected, I guess, Eva informs him. I mean, Im not sure if I really gave her any leads or anything, but if anyone can solve the riddle, it will be her.
Will looks at her and can tell that shes scared by the letter that she received. He walks up to her and turns her around to face him, I wont let anything bad happen to you, you know that, right?
She smiles and hugs him, Sometimes things are out of your control. But thank you for protecting me, she says as their eyes lock after the exit their embrace. Im not going to think about it. I just want to put it out of my mind until Madeline gets some news.
Before he can reply, he hears a knock on the door. He leaves the room and goes to the door. My God, he says as he opens the door and finds a vase of dead roses and a card attached.
What is it? Eva asks, coming around the corner from the bedroom. She sees the roses and covers her mouth. What the hell is this? she asks getting tears in her eyes.
Theres a card, Will tells her as he passes her the card.
She opens the card and looks over at Will, All it says is Boo!
Will looks at Eva, who is terrified. He shakes his head, This is fucked up Eva. We are going to the police. I know I told you that Madeline should be able to help, but this is the last straw. Someone out there is messing with you. With us and it has to stop.
A shaky Eva nods her head in approval, Yes, we will go to the police, yes.
Scene Seven - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawns Home
Helen watches Dawn play and smiles to herself as her eyes then move down and look at her large ring that Adam gave her the other day. She hopes that the two of them can truly put the past behind them and move on again, but she knows that it will take more from Adam for her to trust him completely again. The ring and the idea of renewing their vows is a wonderful first step though, tells herself.
She stands up when she hears the doorbell ring and she quickly walks to the door. She opens it and sees Shane standing on the other side of the door, Shane! Well come in, please, she says as he enters the home.
I hope you dont mind that I stopped by unannounced, he tells her as they enter the living room. I was just hoping to see Dawn, I have been missing her lately, especially since its so close to her birthday.
Helen smiles as he leans down and picks up Dawn and holds her for a minute. Of course, I dont mind, its nice that you stopped by.
How is she doing? After the entire Mallory Cunningham ordeal, I mean? he asks as he turns and looks at Helen, knowing that the entire family must have been shaken after Dawn was kidnapped again.
I think shes okay. Thankfully she wasnt hurt or anything. I think shes finally adjusted to being with Adam and I, Helen tells him. Lets go to the kitchen. I can make some tea.
Thatd be nice, Shane says as he follows her into the kitchen. And how are you and Adam doing?
Helen turns to him and shows him the ring that Adam gave her, We are good. He wants to renew our vows, which I think is a great idea. For so long weve been so far apart from each other. Itll be nice to reconnect, you know?
Shane nods, I do know Helen. I know this hasnt been easy for you, but I do think that you and Adam need to work it out. You need to forgive him because you guys have such a beautiful family here.
Helen hugs Shane, Thank you Shane. Thats so nice of you to say. And I agree!
Ive always considered you and Adam to be some of my best friends, I just want whats best for you.
Suddenly, they hear an odd noise. Its a noise that Helen has heard before, but she has always just brushed it off. It sounds like someone is banging a wrench on a pipe in the basement. Soon the noise stops.
What was that? Shane asks Helen, having also heard the noise.
I think its a pipe in the basement, she says as she walks over to the basement door and opens it. She looks down into the black basement but doesnt see anything or hear anything more.
Weird, it must just be an old pipe or something, Shane tells her as she closes the door.
Yea, it must be, Helen agrees with him, as they return to the kitchen to have some tea.
Scene Eight - Twin Peaks International Airport
On the intercom a females voice is heard indicating that all passengers heading to LA should line up to board the plane. JC looks at Andy with tears in his eyes, I dont know how to trust you Andy, JC tells him as he stands up. Thats my call. I have to go.
Andy stands up and grabs JC and kisses him hard and passionately as people stop and look at them, but he doesnt care. JC finally parts from Andy and looks at him and lets a tear escape. I love you JC. Im so sorry. Please, please tell me that youll give us one more chance.
JC pauses and looks into Andys eyes and can see the man he fell in love with. He doesnt know if things between them will ever work out, but something in him wants to believe Andy again. He hopes hes making the right decision, I love you too.
Andy smiles as his eyes widen up, Does that mean
Ill give us one more chance, JC smiles as Andy leans in and kisses him again.
Scene Nine - Roboto; Bobs Office
So Natasha questioned you about us, Bob asks Kim as they sit on the large leather sofa in his office. He knew that Natasha felt a tension, but he didnt think it would bother her so much that she would question Kim. What did you tell her exactly?
Kim looks at her lover and recalls the conversation with Natasha earlier, I just told her that you had been going through a rough time and I was helping you through it.
That is true, you have been wonderful to me, Bob tells her as he caresses her arm. Thank you and Im sorry Natasha questioned you.
Kim turns and smiles at Bob, You know that I enjoy your company Bob. I wouldnt want to be any where else. I just hope that Natasha will feel the same when she learns the truth about us.
At the door way, a hand slowly opens the door to Bobs office. The figure watches Kim and Bob on the sofa.
Dont you worry about Natasha, Bob tells her. Shell be fine when the truth comes out. We are in control of this Kimberly. No one has to know until we want to them know.
I just hate lying to my best friend, she replies to him.
Youre not lying to her, Bob keeps trying to make her feel better. Anyways, enough of that. I have other things on my mind.
Like what Mr. Calimo? she purrs at him.
Like this, he says as he grabs her and kisses her passionately.
The door to the office slowly closes again. Dominick stands with a grin on his face realizing that he may just found the scandal he needed to ensure his launch is successful.
