Scene One - The Tower’s, Floor Eight; Victoria’s Condo

Victoria places her hand on Robbie’s sweaty chest as she leans over to him and gives him another passionate kiss as they have just finished having intense sex. She knew the way she looked at him when she opened the door to him earlier that something was going to happen, something that she has wanted to have happen for some time now. She realizes that he just found out that Paige isn’t his daughter and his entire marriage is falling apart around him so it probably wasn’t the ideal time for them to have taken their relationship to the next level, but she couldn’t help herself as she wanted Robbie for months now. In her mind, this was inevitable.

“That was amazing,” she whispers to him as their lips part finally. She lays her head down on his smooth, chiselled torso.

He grins as he looks up at the ceiling, a million thoughts race in his mind. Starting with how amazingly beautiful Victoria is and that he had wanted her for so long. Secondly, how his marriage has practically fallen apart in a few short hours and his family has been completely destroyed. Leah’s lies can’t be undone, no matter how hard they may try.

“You’re quiet,” she quickly says to him, wondering if he’s regretting his decision to move their relationship to the bedroom.

“Sorry,” he replies to her. “I guess I have a lot on my mind.”

She leans up and rolls on her side so she can look at him. She moves her hand to his face causing him to look into her eyes, “Are you having second thoughts about us?”

Robbie gives her half a smile, “Not at all Vic,” he quickly reassures her. “I needed you, I wanted you so badly. It’s just the rest of my life that is a huge disaster right now.”

“I can’t imagine how you’re feeling right now,” she admits to him. “Is there anything I can do? The last thing I want to do is make things worse or more complicated.”

“I think you just did a lot for me,” he winks over at her. “Honestly, though,” he continues as he starts to fight some tears in his eyes. “I don’t think there’s anything anyone can do.”

Victoria grabs his hand and looks at him, “It’s okay to feel down Robbie,” she tells him. “You found out the child you thought was yours, isn’t. Just remember that you’re the only father she’s ever known. That doesn’t have to change.”

Robbie looks away from her, “You didn’t hear Jeff speak,” he says, recalling his words at the church. “He is determined to be apart of Paige’s life. Be her father. I probably should just move away and allow that to happen. She has ever right to know who her father is. Who her,” he pauses biting his lower lip. “Real father is.”

“But she’s already in love with you Robbie,” Victoria continues to tell him. “And you’re in love with her. If you just disappear from her life, she won’t understand. You have to think about Paige in all of this.”

Robbie looks back at her, “I don’t know how when I’m devastated. Every time I hear her name, I feel my heart break inside my chest all over again. I don’t know if or how I will ever get over this.”

“Oh Robbie,” Victoria says back to him as she leans in and hugs him.

“I don’t know how I will get over this,” he whispers into her ear. “I don’t know how to let this go.”

Scene Two - The Calimo House; Robbie, Leah & Paige’s Home

Leah pours herself another vodka beverage and quickly drinks it all as she stands in the living room of her house with Robbie. She’s in her house coat and drinking as she came home with Paige after the wedding to put her down to sleep. She’s been alone since then, wondering if and when she will see Robbie again tonight. She takes her drink with her as she approaches the mantel that has pictures of her life with Robbie on it. She picks up a picture form her wedding day to Robbie and puts her hand over his face before she moves the picture back to the mantel. The next picture she picks up is of her, Paige and Robbie, which leaves her feeling devastated.

“How could I let this happen?” she asks herself as a tear falls on to the picture. She quickly wipes it and puts it back on the mantel before she turns around, not able to look at the pictures anymore. They are causing her too much pain and making her realize what has actually happened. She just wishes she understood how out of no where Jeff was able to put the pieces together of Paige’s paternity. She and Dominick had done such a good job of keeping the secret safe for so long.

“God Robbie, you have to understand why I did this,” she whispers to herself. “You have to know that I wanted our family to be together.”

She pauses when she hears the front doorbell ring. “Could Robbie have forgotten his key?” she wonders as she sets her drink down and walks to the front door hoping to see her husband. She opens the door and instead sees Jeff standing on the other side of the door. “Jeff, what are you doing here?”

Jeff sighs and looks at his ex-wife, “I came to see Paige,” he reveals to her, his head still in a complete haze over the day’s events. “I’d like to see my daughter.”

“She’s sleeping Jeff,” she replies to him quickly, still not letting him in the house. She isn’t ready for anything to be official yet. She’s not ready for Jeff to be coming over and demanding to see “his daughter”.

“Then I’ll wait until she wakes up Leah,” he tells her sternly as he walks past her and makes his way into the living room.

“Jeff, you can’t just barge into my home and demand to see Paige,” Leah yells back at him following him into the living room.

“Don’t you dare tell me what I can and can’t do Leah,” Jeff replies to her as he turns and faces her. “You’ve been lying to everyone for years. You’ve kept me from my daughter for years. I don’t know how the hell you could have done that after everything we went through with Noah!”

Leah feels her eyes swell with water again, “Don’t do that! Don’t bring Noah into this Jeff!”

“Why not?” he spits back at her. “You thought, ‘Hey, we lost one child together, why not another?’ This is disgusting Leah!” he yells at her as he sees that she is crying now and he starts to get water in his eyes too. “I hate that we are fighting about something like this! Why would you do this to me? Why would you do this to … us?”

Leah puts her hand over her mouth and slowly falls to the ground, “I’m sorry. I never meant for it to go this far. I just wanted … I just wanted my family to stay together.” Her sobs quickly turn into a water gate of tears.

Jeff kneels down and grabs her hands from the floor and looks into her eyes, “We can fix this Leah, but we have to start by you letting me see Paige. I want her to know that I am her father. I want to be her father. We have to make this right.”

Leah nods through her tears, hoping that she’s doing the right thing by allowing Jeff to see Paige. He’s right, he should be allowed to see Paige and get to know his daughter. The last thing she wants to do is cause Robbie more pain, since she hasn’t seen him or spoken to him about this decision.

Scene Three - The Pampa Grill

“Thanks for having a late dinner with me,” Donovan replies to Andy, who is sitting across from him taking a drink of his red wine. “I couldn’t be at the wedding earlier because of work and am dying to know how it went down.”

Andy sets his glass down and arches his eyebrow at his friend, recalling how the wedding was called off because of Jeff’s outburst that Paige is really his daughter and not Robbie’s. “There wasn’t a wedding,” Andy reveals to his friend, somewhat happy that he can share the drama with someone else.

“You’re kidding!” Donovan says with a shocked look on his face. “Robin and Cory are so in love, what could have stopped the wedding?”

Andy arches his eyebrow again, “Robin’s sister’s ex-husband stood up and announced that he is Paige’s father, not Robbie. Leah was horrified to say that least.”

“Oh my God, is it true?” Donovan asks, still stunned.

“I don’t know. Everyone left to give the three of them some alone time,” Andy recalls the events to him.

“Wow, I can’t believe it.”

Andy nods his head, “I’ve been meaning to ask you, did you hear about Victoria?”

Donovan’s face suddenly changes from surprise to concern. He does recall getting a message from Eva earlier in the day indicating that Victoria had been attacked in the garden of the church before the wedding which left her with a cut on her neck.

“I did,” he says quietly back to Andy. “Eva called me. I haven’t had the chance to speak to her directly yet, her phone has been going to voicemail but accordingly to my Mom she’s okay.”

Andy smiles a little realizing that Donovan may have just made a break through and not have even have realized it.

“Why are you smiling?” Donovan asks arching his eye brow.

“You just called Eva your Mom. That might be progress,” Andy winks over at him.

Donovan blushes a looks down, “Yea, I guess so. It hasn’t been an easy process and I don’t think I’m completely over everything that has happened yet, but it may be a step in the right direction. Time heals all wounds, sort of thing.”

Andy nods over at him, “I think it’s a good sign Donovan. You don’t want to keep all that hurt and anger inside forever, you know?”

Donovan nods, knowing what Andy is saying does make sense. “What’s new with you? How’s Craig doing?”

Andy pauses before answering as he recalls that Craig was a little put off when he saw Andy and Donovan having lunch a few weeks earlier because Andy hadn’t told him about his friendship with Donovan, who is attractive and because Andy had been holding Donovan’s hand in a time of crisis.

“Things are good,” Andy replies coyly, not wanting Donovan to hear about the small issues in his relationship. “I mentioned to him that the three of us should go out sometime and he agreed.”

“Oh yea?” Donovan asks getting excited. “That would be awesome. I look forward to that.”

Andy sighs a little not sure how he really feels about it, but smiles, “Us too.”

Scene Four - Twin Peaks Rehabilitation Center; Adam’s Room

“That was so awesome,” Adam’s doctor tells him as he helps Adam back into his beg in his private room. “You really did an outstanding job in therapy today Adam.”

Adam lays back in the bed thrilled to be resting again. His therapy session was the most intense it had ever been thus far in his rehabilitation process but it paid off as he was able to take three full steps all on his own. Up until this point, he had only been able to take one step here and there. He smiles at his doctor, “I can’t believe I was able to take three steps doc. Does that mean I’m getting better?”

Dr. Roger Mastel looks back at Adam, “I’d say we are on the right track. It is clear that your legs can still be used for walking Adam. It’s all about regaining strength so you don’t feel so tired and you don’t have to exert yourself so much just to take those steps. A very good sign indeed, but we still have work to do.”

Adam nods back to him. “I’m up for the challenge. I can’t wait to be walking again so I can be at home with my wife and daughter.”

“Is there anything else I can get you before I leave?” the doctor asks him as he gets ready to depart as Adam shakes his head no. “Okay, good work again today Adam and I’ll see you tomorrow.”

At the door frame, Casey quickly moves away having overheard the entire conversation between Roger and Adam as he doesn’t want Roger to see him standing at the door eavesdropping. He watches from a corner as the doctor leave before he pulls out his phone and looks at the screen. He searches his contacts until he sees Helen’s name.

“I guess I should send sis a note about Adam’s progress,” he whispers to himself. “Cassie won’t like this at all, but she had to know that eventually Adam would get better.”

He quickly types a text into the phone and presses send. He looks up and wonders what Adam’s progress will mean for his plan with Cassie. He shakes his head knowing that they have to ensure that their secrets stay safe, or everything will be ruined.

Scene Five - Riverside Delicatessen

“I can’t imagine what Robbie is going through right now,” Trenyce says as she takes a bite of her sandwich. “If anyone tried to tell me that Andrew wasn’t my son, I think I would freak out.”

Daisy takes her coffee cup and takes a drink as she watches her niece, “We don’t have to worry about that Trenyce, but I understand what you mean. It’s not exactly the day anyone thought it was going to be.”

Vinny emerges at the table and sits next to him, his order finally coming up last. He sits closer to Daisy and Trenyce stops and notices how much closer the two of them seem to be than she had remembered in the past. She arches her eyebrow a little, “What’s going on with you two?”

Vinny smiles and looks at Trenyce before he looks back at Daisy, recalling how at the wedding Daisy finally agreed to go out on a date with him and they shared their first kiss. He doesn’t want to say anything that will make Daisy uncomfortable, however, as he knows that they have to take their relationship slowly.

“We are just enjoying spending some quality time together,” Daisy replies to Trenyce, hoping that it will settle her curiosity down a little. She doesn’t want to rush or assume anything with her new romance with Vinny, if she could even call it that.

Trenyce nods her head, “Okay, okay.”

“We should be asking you what’s going on!” Vinny replies to her.

“What do you mean?” she asks surprised.

“You seem to be spending an awful lot of time with Casey Black, Helen’s brother,” Daisy tells her of her observation. “Anything we should know about?”

Trenyce puts her head down as she is blushing a little. She still hasn’t gotten used to how good Casey treats her and how comfortable it has been being in a relationship with a man.

“You’re not saying anything,” Vinny says as he sees her blushing.

“Sorry,” Trenyce replies as she finally looks up at them. “I am seeing Casey and it’s been the most wonderful experience so far,” she admits to them. “He treats me so well and I’m really, really happy.”

Daisy smiles as she sees a glow over her niece’s face, which she has never seen before. For all the years that Trenyce has been in Twin Peaks, this is the first time she’s had a boyfriend, at least that Daisy has known of. It’s refreshing for her to see Trenyce in this state.

“You do look happy,” Daisy tells her. “And that makes me happy. Do me a favour, though?”

“Anything Daisy,” Trenyce says to her.

“I know you’re happy, but be careful. Don’t rush into anything that you’re not ready for, okay?”

“I promise,” Trenyce tells her, wondering if it’s too late for that as she cares deeply for Casey, something she never thought was possible.

Scene Six - The Glubbs House; Shane’s Home

Shane sits on his sofa holding a gin and tonic in his hand his mind racing with a million different thoughts. In front of him on the coffee table, is the letter that Natasha wrote him telling him that she is too stressed out by her father’s marriage to Kim so she has left town for awhile to clear her head. He knows that she had been stressed about Bob’s marriage to her former best friend, but she never once gave any indication that she wanted to leave town to clear her head. He also doesn’t like the fact that she has told him in a letter; why wouldn’t she tell him face to face? Or over the telephone? Something, in Shane’s mind, isn’t adding up. He just wishes he could place exactly what it is.

He stands up when he hears the doorbell ring at the front door. He takes a drink of his gin before putting it down on the coffee table and walks to the front door. He sighs heavily before he opens it, knowing that he may have somewhat of a battle on his hands.

“Bob, Kim,” Shane says as he sees the couple on the other side of the door. “Thank you for coming over so quickly. Please come in.”

The newly weds enter the house and make their way to the living room. “We were on our way home but when you called, we came right over,” Kim tells him, curious as to the purpose of his call. “It sounded serious.”

“It is,” Shane explains to them as they reach the living room. “Can I get you guys a drink of some kind.”

“No, we are fine,” Bob replies to him. “Tell me, is this about Natasha? I know you were worried about her earlier when she was running late for the wedding. I haven’t been able to get a hold of her yet either and I’d like to tell her what happened at the wedding with her brother. She would want to be there for her brother.”

“She will need to be there for Robbie, more than ever right now,” Kim says looking at her husband, knowing that Robbie is probably devastated over the fact that Paige is not his daughter.

“She should be here,” Shane replies to them both. “But it appears that Natasha has left town. And you two are the cause of it.”

“What does that mean?” Kim asks shocked and taken aback by his tone with her.

“This,” Shane says as he leans down to pick up Natasha’s letter and passes it to Bob. “This was delivered to me shortly after the wedding ended.”

Bob arches his eyebrow as he unfolds the letter. Kim leans in and he holds the letter open so they can both read it, which they do quickly.

“I can’t believe this,” Kim replies as she covers her hand with her mouth. “Is she really that upset by our marriage Bob?”

Bob shakes his head, “This is so unlike her,” he says looking back up at Shane. “Natasha may be a lot of things, but she doesn’t run away from her problems.”

“I was thinking the same thing,” Shane replies to him. “If Natasha wanted time away, she would told me or called me. This letter leaves me with a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach.”

Bob comes up to Shane and puts his hand on his shoulder, “I will do everything in my power to find my daughter and make sure that she is safe Shane. You have my word on that.”

“Thank you Bob,” Shane replies to him.

Kim watches them and knows that Bob is being the protective father, but she looks back at the letter laying on the coffee table. She rolls her eyes and thinks that this is Natasha’s letter and she is running away to cause this tension on purpose. She looks over at her husband and wonders if she will be able to convince him of the same.

Scene Seven - MW Investigations

Madeline sits at her computer trying to focus on some files but she is unable too. The day’s events are replaying over and over in her mind quickly and she doesn’t know how she should exactly feel about them. The look on Robbie’s face when Jeff stood up and announced that he is Paige’s father is haunting her. She set this entire plan into motion to get revenge on Robin for stealing Cory from her.

Madeline sighs and covers her face wondering if she did the right thing. She wanted to ruin Robin and Cory’s wedding, which she did but she didn’t mean to cause so much hurt to Jeff, Leah and Robbie. When she was ordered out of the church with all of the other guests, she could see how horrified Robbie was. His world was coming down crashing around him, and she is to blame.

“What have I done?” she asks herself.

“That’s a very good question,” a voice says at her doorway.

Madeline looks up and gulps when she sees Dominick standing there. He enters the office and closes the door behind him before turning around to face the young woman.

“Dominick,” she finally says with half a smile, trying to act as normal as possible. “This is a … surprise,” she continues slowly. “What’s going on?”

“You know damn well what’s going on,” he replies in a low, stern voice. “You set this all in motion, didn’t you? You told Jeff the truth even after I warned you not to.”

Madeline looks at him and realizes that she can’t tell him the truth or he will really want to come after her. “I did no such thing. I have no idea how Jeff found out the truth.”

Dominick stands up straight and crosses his arms getting a grin on his face, “So that’s how you’re going to play it, huh? I’m sure you’ve covered your bases to ensure that your name isn’t any where on this Madeline,” he tells her. “But I know that you’re the one that caused this pain today. And you know what that means, don’t you?” he continues as she shakes her head no. “It means that you just made the biggest mistake of your life.”

Scene Eight - The Towers, Floor Eight; Victoria’s Condo

Victoria finishes getting dressed after a shower and seeing Robbie off. She wasn’t sure where he was going, probably back to his place to see Leah and Paige but she knows that he needed to go. She’s still on cloud nine after finally being with him sexually. She had wanted him for so long, she only hopes it happens again and again.

She walks out when she hears her doorbell ring, wondering if Robbie forgot something. She opens the door, “What did you forget?” she asks with a small smile on her face, only to see Eva standing there. “Oh Eva,” she quickly changes her tone. “Sorry I thought you were some one else.”

“That’s fine,” Eva replies quickly walking into the living room as Victoria shuts the door. “I went to see your father about your attack earlier in the day.”

“You did what?” Victoria asks, shocked that her mother went behind her back to confront Ernesto. She and Robbie had discussed going the following morning. “You know that the police were going to question him don’t you?”

Eva nods back at her, “Yes, yes, but I wanted to get to the bottom of the this. I know it was him that pulled the knife on you. I just know it.”

“Well what did he say?” Victoria asks, still surprised that Eva took matters into her own hands.

“He claimed he was at the hotel all day and apparently hotel staff can back him up on that,” Eva informs her of what Ernesto said. “But I’m telling you Marbella, I know it was him. I can feel it in my bones. He’s a sick man that would do anything to get back at us.”

Victoria sighs, “I can’t deal with this anymore!” she replies to Eva. “I just want him gone and out of my life.”

“We all do,” Eva says coming up and hugging Victoria. To her surprise, Victoria hugs her back. “We have to stick together right now to make sure he doesn’t hurt anyone else.”

“I know and we have to find proof that he did this to me,” Victoria whispers back.

“We will Marbella, we will.”

Scene Nine - The Glubbs House; Shane’s Home

Shane pours himself another gin and tonic as he recounts his visit with Bob and Kim went well, all things considering. He knows that having Bob in his corner in hopes of finding Natasha is a good thing as Bob has a lot of power and money.

He takes a sip of his stiff beverage and sighs after he swallows. “I will find you Natasha, even if it’s the last thing I do.”

He turns around and arches his eyebrow when he hears the door bell ring again. He isn’t expecting anyone after Bob and Kim left, so he walks slowly over to the door and opens it. He sees Helen standing on the other side of the door, “Helen, this is a surprise,” Shane tells her as she comes into the house. “Is everything okay?”

Cassie turns around and looks at Shane, trying to hide the lust in her eyes for him. “I was just in the neighbourhood and thought I’d stop in and see how you were doing. I didn’t get a chance to make it to the wedding earlier.”

Shane sighs and moves closer to her. He thrills Cassie when he hugs her and holds her for a moment, “I think it’s one of those times that I need you instead of you needing me,” he whispers into her ear as they hug. “I’ve had a long day.”

She rubs his back with her hand as they hug creating a huge smile on her face, “I’m here for you Shane. Anything you need, I’m here.”
