Setting: The Towers; The Penthouse; Cory’s Home

Cory and Robin lay in each other’s arms in the bed, in the afterglow of making love.

"Cory? Are you awake?" Robin whispers.

"Yea. What’s on your mind?"

"Just thinking, about how wonderful this feels. Being with you, it’s perfect. For the first time in my life, I feel complete."

Cory looks and Robin, and kisses her.

"I love you Cory"

Cory begins to say something, but Robin stops him.

"Don’t say anything. I know you don’t love me yet, but I know you will. It will take time."

"Thank you for understanding"

"But in that time, I want to be with you. Always Cory."

"What are you saying?"

"Marry me?" Robin smiles.

Scene 3
Setting: Jason’s Home in White Cove

Jason and Natasha sit in the living room, eating their dinner.

"This is really good Jason. You are a great cook." Natasha smiles.

"Thanks." he says, taking a bite of food. "You seem to be in good spirits"

"Can you blame me? I’m getting my memory back. Slowly, it’s returning. Then, I can get my life back"

Suddenly Natasha has another flash. She sees herself in the Calimo cabin, with Cory. Jason realizes that Natasha is remembering again.

"Natasha? What is it? What do you remember?"

Natasha zones back into reality. "I....I’m with the same guy. In a cabin! In our cabin!"

"Do you know where this cabin is? If you can find it, you may remember more?"

Natasha looks at Jason. "You’re right! I have to go to the cabin."

"Listen, I’m going into the town for awhile. I’ll pick up a few things, and it’ll give you time to think about the location of your cabin." Jason says.

"Thanks Jason." Natasha says.

Scene 4
Setting: The Towers; The Penthouse; Cory’s Home

Robin and Cory continue to lay in bed, as Robin has just asked Cory to marry her.

"Cory...you’re not saying anything" Robin says.

"I’m just a little surprised Robin. I was not expecting you to ask me to marry you." Cory says, rolling out of bed, and slipping his pajama bottoms on.

Robin gets out of bed, and grabs her robe.

"Cory, just listen to me. Please"

They are interrupted by the sound of the doorbell.

"We will continue this after" Cory says, starting to go downstairs.

Cory arrives at the door, and finds Leah.

"Leah? What’s going on?" Cory asks, allowing her to enter the apartment.

"I need to see Robin. Is she here?"

Suddenly Robin emerges at the stairs. "Leah? What are you doing here?"

"Robin, come here. I have to tell you something. I don’t know how you are going to take it."

Scene 5
Setting: White Cove; The Convenient Store

Jason arrives at the store. He looks around, and the store is almost empty. He does spot someone near the back of the store, but doesn’t recognize the girl.

Rebecca is at the back of the store. She hears the door open, and quickly notices a good looking young man enter the store. She quickly becomes fixed upon the young hunk, but she quickly scolds herself.

"With everything going on in your life, you don’t need a guy" she tells herself.

Jason, meanwhile, goes to the same aisle as Rebecca. He can’t help but be attracted to her. Rebecca notices Jason looking at her, and smiles.

"Hi" she finally says.

"Hello. Are you new in town? You don’t look familiar"

"I’m on a vacation. Not that, it’s much of a vacation" Rebecca smiles.

"Vacation? Wow. Are you alone?"

"Yea. Just me."

Jason smiles.

"One of my friends should be back later though. We aren’t together or anything" Rebecca says.

"Well, if you get lonely, give me a call." Jason says. "We could hang out or something"

"Really?! That would be great." Rebecca says. "I don’t want to be alone right now."

Scene 6
Setting: The Towers; The Penthouse; Cory’s Home

Robin sits on the sofa. Cory goes into the kitchen and makes some coffee. Leah sits next to Robin on the sofa.

"So, what do you have to tell me?" Robin asks.

"Please, just listen to me Robin. Your entire world is going to be turned up side down."

"OK, now you’re scaring me Leah. What’s going on?"

Cory interrupts, with coffee.

"I’ll be upstairs if you need anything." he says.

"No, Cory. Please stay. I want you to hear everything Leah has to say."

Cory sits in a lazy-boy chair.

"Robin, I met someone. Someone who has a connection to you."

"What kind of connection?"

"She claims to be your sister."

Robin starts to laugh. "My sister? You’re joking right?"

"I wish I were."

Robin stops laughing, and she gets serious.

"I was in White Cove, on a business trip. I was at the White Cove Inn. I saw this woman. I had seen her before. In the deserted mansion on the way to Natasha’s funeral. She looks so much like you. When I saw her at the Inn, I was determined to talk to her, and find out what she was up to. Well, I called her on the fact that she looks like you. She confessed that she remembered your mother giving her up as a child. She didn’t know why she was given up and not you." Leah explains to Robin.

Robin gets tears in her eyes.

"And, Robin. She wants to see you."

Robin starts to cry.

"I can’t! I can’t do this!" Robin says, rushing upstairs.

Setting: Wild Night

Kim arrives at Wild Night. She sits down at the bar, and orders a drink. Soon, Robbie enters and spots Kim. He sits next to her.

"Hey Kim." Robbie says.

"Robbie! Hi."

"Can I join you?"

"I would rather you didn’t."

"Why not Kim?"

"The last time we saw each other, I kind of made a jerk of myself."

"No Kim, you didn’t. I understand that are you in the midst of a crisis. Now, come join me. There’s a booth open now."

Kim looks at the booth, and then at Robbie.

"Alright, I’ll join you."

Kim gets up and walks over to the booth. She sits down, and Robbie sits across from her.

"So, how are you, with Jackson out of town?" Robbie asks.

"I feel safer, I guess. It is still hard. I feel like he’s always with me."

"Do you still have the guard on him."

"Yes, always. I just feel that he’s taken over my life. I want my life back Robbie."

Suddenly, Robbie looks up and is stunned to see Jackson at Wild Night! Kim turns and sees Jackson as well.

"Do you see what I mean?" Kim asks.

Robbie gets up and walks over to Jackson.

"Officer Calimo! What are you doing here?" Jackson smiles.

"You are breaking you agreement with Ms. Reeves. You have 20 minutes to be out of Twin Peaks, or you will be taken back to jail."

Robbie returns to the booth.

"The next time you see him, tell me, and you will be taken back to jail."

"Thank you Robbie."

Setting: Chris and Daisy’s Home

Daisy is pacing around the house, as Chris sits in the living room.

"Daisy, you are going to wear out the carpet. Come sit down" Chris says.

"I’m to nervous. Tomorrow is the day of the election results."

"If you can’t even sit down for a minute, how do you expect to sleep tonight?" Chris jokes.

Daisy smiles. "I’m sorry sweetie. I will try to relax a little" Daisy says, sitting down next to Chris.

"I’m sure you will do fine tomorrow. Win or lose" Chris says.

"Thank you" Daisy says, giving Chris a kiss.

Meanwhile, at City Hall, a mysterious figure breaks into Daisy’s office.

Setting: The Towers; The Penthouse; Cory’s Home

Cory arrives upstairs at his bedroom. He enters the room, and finds Robin in tears on the bed.

"Do you wanna talk?" he asks, sitting on the bed.

Robin hugs Cory.

"Why is it every time I seem content in my life, something happens to turn it upside down? I think I’m jinxed Cory."

"You life hasn’t been turn upside down. You have added family. Family is one of the most important things in life, Robin. You should cherish this."

"You don’t understand. My family has lied to me. Why didn’t I know about Leah? Why didn’t I know about this Rebecca? My family isn’t honest like yours."

"I don’t know how to help you Robin. All I can say to is, go see your sister. If not, you will regret it forever"

Cory gets up and walks to the door. "Leah has to go back, so get dressed if you want to see her"

Cory leaves.
