Episode Theme song: "My
Kind of Love" Emeli Sande
Scene One - St. Josephs Church
Veronica looks into the mirror that is in the bridal dressing home at the church and she smile as she looks at herself. She is wearing a simple long white gown and has her hair pulled back into a small bun. She cant believe that its her wedding day. It is days that little girls always dream of; the day her prince comes and makes her apart of him and his life. She feels her heart warm at the thought of getting to spend the rest of her life with Jeff as he is a good man; a man that she clearly loves. If she has one regret in with the wedding day, its that she doesnt have more of her family and friends there to celebrate with her. Her and Jeff agreed that it would be just the two of them and Father Murphy for the day. After the fiasco at Robin and Corys wedding, they didnt want to have something similar to happen. Plus, everything happened so quickly, everyone in Boston didnt have the chance to make it to the wedding.
She picks up her bouquet and turns around preparing to go and marry Jeff. She opens the door and spots Jeff waiting for her outside of her room. She immediately notices how handsome he looks in his suit and tie.
You look absolutely beautiful, he says to her, unable to take his eyes off her in her wedding dress.
She blushes a little, Thank you. You look very handsome yourself.
Are you ready to do this? he asks her as he grabs her hand. Father Murphy is waiting at the alter for us. Its your last chance to back out.
She smiles back to him, I wont do that to you. I cant wait to be your wife.
Jeff smiles back to her, Good answer, he replies to her. Come on, lets go get married.
They walk together into the sanctuary and see Father Murphy standing at the alter. He looks up and sees the couple walk down the aisle together and smiles at the sight of them. He has always loved wedding. Seeing two people vow to love each other makes him very happy.
Back in the foyer of the church, the front door opens and Leah walks into the church. She looks around and doesnt see anyone or any sign of the wedding going on. She breathes a sigh of relief thinking that maybe Jeff and Veronica had a change of heart. She doesnt exactly know why she showed up at the wedding but she knows that she doesnt want Jeff to marry Veronica. She knows that Veronicas the wrong woman for Jeff. She turns around and is about to leave when she hears voices from the sanctuary.
You two make a lovely couple, Father Murphy tells Jeff and Veronica as they reach the alter. Im so pleased that you are willing to take this step into marriage. Its a real blessing and gift that not everyone has the honour of reaching in life and in a relationship. Are you both ready to continue?
Veronica and Jeff look at each other and smile before looking back at Father Murphy, We are ready, she replies to him.
Take each others hands, Father Murphy tells them as the couple listen to their instructions. And now look into each others eyes. The eyes are the windows to our souls, the Father continues. Each time you look deep into each others eyes you will be able to see what the other is thinking and feeling. Its one of the gifts of true love.
Jeff, when you look into Veronicas eyes, Father Murphy says. What do you see?
Jeff looks deep into his fiancés eyes and pauses for a moment, I see a strong, caring, beautiful woman who would never hurt a soul in her life. I see a giving, passionate woman whom loves me very much.
And Veronica, when you look into Jeffs eyes what do you see?
Veronica smiles and looks into Jeffs eyes, I see the strongest, bravest man Ive ever met. I see a man that wants me to have success and wants to love me for who I am and nothing more. I see love and respect in his eyes.
Jeff smiles back at Veronica as Father Murphy looks around the empty church, This next part will be easy, he winks at them. Is there anyone here that opposes the marriage between this man and this woman? If so, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Jeff and Veronica laugh a little knowing that no one is at the church with them. They look at up Father Murphy, almost wanting him to speed up the ceremony.
I have something to say. I have a reason why this wedding shouldnt take place, Leah announces at the back of the church as she enters and starts to walk down the aisle, leaving Veronica horrified. Jeff, you cant marry her. You have to hear me out.
Scene Two - The Pampa Grill
What is all of this? Eva asks Will as she sits down at a large table, clearly more than just for two. I thought when you asked me here it was going to be just the two of us.
Will looks over at Eva and nods his head, It will be just the two of us at first, but I invited some other people to join us in a few minutes. I wanted some alone time with you first.
Eva arches her eyebrow wondering what he is up too. Whats going on? You seem to be in a funny mood.
Will looks at her and tries to hold it together. I cant tell you how much you mean to me, he begins to tell her. When I found you on the pier unconscious
Dont do this Will, she cuts him off, not wanting to rehash her attack. Im fine. Nothing bad happened, okay?
Will shakes his head, Its not okay Eva. I was so scared. I was so worried that I had lost you. I dont want to feel that way anymore.
What are you saying? she asks him, not understanding where hes going with his heartfelt speech.
Im sorry that Ive been so distant from you since your past came to light. I want us to get back on track, I want us to be okay again, he smiles over to as he can see her getting water in her eyes.
You mean it? she gasps as she has waited to hear those words from him for so long.
Of course I mean it, he replies to her. And to prove it to you, I have something for you.
She watches as he gets out of his seat and moves over next to her. He gets down on one knee and pulls out a black box from his pocket, Marry me Eva. Be my wife. Lets be together forever.
Oh Will, she says looking at the large diamond ring in the box. Of course Ill marry you!
Donovan looks at his phone as he walks into the restaurant to double check the time that Will asked him to meet him and Eva there. He realizes that hes running a little bit early, which is fine for him. Hed rather be early for the mysterious gathering than be late. He is assuming that Will is gathering everyone together so they can discuss how to handle Ernesto, since they all believe that he is the one behind Victoria and Evas recent attacks.
He turns the corner in the restaurant and sees Ernesto walking towards him. Donovan feels his heart skip a beat as he doesnt know how to talk to his father. He hoped for so long that when Ernesto claimed that he was a changed man, his father was being honest with him. The attacks on his mother and sister prove that his father has not changed one bit. That truth makes Donovan upset.
Donovan, Ernesto says as he approaches his son. This is a surprise to see you here.
I cant talk Ernesto, Donovan coldly replies to him. Im meeting some people here and Im running late. Donovan lies to his father. He hates lying, but he couldnt think of anything else to say.
You dont even have a moment for your father? Ernesto asks him. That seems a bit cold, doesnt it?
Donovan arches his eye brow, You know whats cold Dad? Donovan replies to him. You stalking Victoria and Eva. You have no idea what family is and you have no idea what love is. You make me sick to my stomach.
Those are interesting choices of words, Ernesto says back to him as he crosses his arms. Because I know your secret and frankly it makes me sick to my stomach.
My secret? Donovan asks, not sure what Ernesto is talking about. I have no secrets.
Ernesto laughs a little, So I heard wrong? Your not a faggot?
Donovan freezes and feels his heart move into his throat. What did you just say?
You heard me. I know that youre a faggot. You have no room to talk about making people sick, Ernesto taunts his son as he moves closer to him. And if I were you, Id watch your next step. First Marbella, then Eva maybe youre the next member of your family to be attacked, Ernesto whispers to his son.
Get the fuck away from me, Donovan replies to his father as he walks away from him quickly. He feels water swell in his eyes as he cant believe what his father just told him. He feels his entire body start to shake.
Donovan, whats wrong? Eva asks as Donovan reaches the table where she and Will are.
He doesnt say anything as he falls into his mothers arms and she holds him.
Scene Three - The Towers, Floor Eight; Victorias Condo
Will has invited me to the Pampa Grill, Victoria tells Robbie as they lay next to each other in her large bed, fresh from another, intense, love making session. Victoria, now that she and Robbie have taken the next step with their relationship, cant get enough of him. She does have some fears in the back of her mind that Robbie is rushing into another romance with her so soon after his marriage has ended to Leah.
Oh yea, he replies to her. Im thinking he wants to come up with a plan to uncover that Ernesto was the one behind the attacks.
How did your meeting go with Ernesto? she asks him back, knowing that Robbie and Ernesto had a meeting at the police station recently.
Robbie sighs and looks at her, Ill say this about your father, he knows how to play it cool. He didnt give anything away. With his alibis at the hotel panning out, we dont have any proof that he is behind the attacks.
What do you think we should do? Victoria asks him, knowing that they cant let Ernesto get away with what he did. He has to pay for what he has done to me and Eva.
He will, Robbie reassures her as he caresses her face with his hand. We have to be patient and he will slip up. In the meantime, you and Eva need to be extra careful never to be alone. We cant give him another chance to hurt you. I wont let him do that to you.
She smiles at him and leans in and gives him a kiss, Thank you.
They part from their kiss, Whats wrong? he asks her, noticing that she looks upset about something. Was it something I said?
She shakes her head, Im scared.
Dont be, he replies to her. Ill protect you from Ernesto.
I know, thats not what Im scared of, she admits to him as she closes her eyes for a moment.
What are you scared of Victoria?
This, she replies looking at him. You and me together like this.
Robbie arches his eye brow, I could have swore you liked it, he winks at her. Seriously, what makes you scared of us being together?
Victoria sighs, You just left your wife Robbie, she confides to him. Your divorce isnt even finalized yet. I just I dont want to get in over my head with you. I dont want to be a rebound for you. Ive been hurt too many times in the past with men, I dont want that again.
Robbie moves closer to and grabs her face with his hands, I dont want to hurt you either and thats not my intent, he tells her. I cant tell you what will happen in the future, but I can tell you that youre not a rebound. I had been thinking about you for months before my marriage ended.
Really? she asks him looking into his eyes.
Really, he replies. I wanted you. I wanted to be with you. I am turned on by you, he reveals to her, recalling the months of sexual tension the two felt.
I guess I can kinda tell, she winks back over to him.
He kisses her passionately, I can show you again if you want me too.
She feels his hand move down to her breast and he squeezes it, We should hurry so we can go to the Pampa Grill.
He looks up to her, They can wait, he says as his mouth starts to explore her body again.
Scene Four - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawns Home
How did you sleep? Helen asks Natasha as she dries her hair, fresh from a shower that is in the far back corner of the cage.
Natasha looks up from her small cot and rolls over to face Helen. I didnt really sleep, she admits to Helen. I cant tell if its morning, noon, or night down here. The lack of sun light is really starting to get to me. I feel like Im going crazy or something.
Helen sighs, not even remembering what sun light is. Its been about a full year since she was kidnapped and placed in the cage. I think I was going crazy before you came here, she admits to Natasha. Being locked by yourself for almost a year with no one to talk too thats when you really go crazy.
Im sorry, Natasha says as she leans up on the cot. I forgot that you have been here for so much longer than I have been here. I can be so insensitive.
Helen shakes her head, Dont worry about it. This is going to sound awful, but Im glad that Im not alone anymore. Its nice having someone to talk too.
Natasha laughs together, I suppose if youre going to be kidnapped and held hostage, its better to have a friend with you.
Both women look at each other for a moment before they burst out laughing realizing that they have to find humour in this disastrous situation that they are in.
In my lack of sleep, Natasha starts to say as her laughter starts to calm down. I think Ive come up with a plan to get Casey to help us. Its going to take both of us, but I think we can do this.
Helen nods her head, Really? Okay, Im listening. Anything for us to get the hell out of here.
Upstairs, Cassie opens the door to the house and sees Shane standing on the other side, Shane! she smiles, always thrilled when he is around her. To make things better for her, she didnt even invite him over today, he has just showed up. She tries to remember that she has to play the role of Helen. She cant afford any slip ups now, not after everything she has worked on to get to this point.
What brings you by? she asks as he enters the house and moves into the living room.
Shane looks at her and shrugs, I guess I needed to see a friendly face. Eva and I spoke yesterday. Her ex-husband may have had something do with Natashas disappearance.
Cassie arches her eyebrow, knowing that the woman Shane is looking for is right below them. You do you say that?
Shane nods, Something isnt sitting right with me about this letter that she wrote Helen. I still think that if Natasha needed time away to get her head around Bobs marriage, she would have called me. Its not like her to just disappear. Evas ex is a dangerous man. She thinks he may have gone after Natasha as some kind of sick revenge.
Cassie nods her head, already thinking of something else that she can do to make sure Shane doesnt continue to dig for Natasha. Like I told you before Shane, I dont think Natasha was in the right frame of mind. You know, she was acting odd for awhile before that.
Shane arches his eyebrow, How so?
She was worried about the wedding plans, and she just seemed unsettled, Cassie lies to him, hoping that she was upset. And theres something else that I havent told you.
Shane looks at her, What havent you told me?
Natasha, Cassie begins to say as she tries to force herself to cry. She confronted me about kissing you the first time we kissed.
Shane nods, Yea, one of the last conversations we had, I told her what happened. I didnt want to keep that from her.
Cassie looks at him, Thats fair, she begins to say. She was just so cruel to me about it. The things she said to me.
What did she say? Shane asks, moving closer to her. The last thing I wanted to do was create friction between the two of you.
Its not your fault, she quickly replies to him. The kiss wasnt anyones fault either, it just happened. But Natasha she just went off. Ive never seen her like that before.
Shane comes up and hugs her, wondering if Natasha really did go off the deep end and went away on her own. Im so sorry that you had to endure that.
Cassie pretends to start to cry as he holds her. She was so mean. I really think that everything that happened made her lose it Shane. I know its not want you want to hear, but I think Natasha left on her own free will.
Now that youve said this, Shane says back to her. It would make sense.
Cassie slowly walks around him and moves to the sofa and sits down. She continues to cry a little.
Whats wrong? he asks her as he moves and sits next to her. If Natasha was upset, you know she didnt mean anything she said.
Its not about Natasha, Cassie replies to him, putting her hand on his leg. I filed for divorce from Adam.
You did? Shane asks surprised. How are you feeling?
Cassie shrugs, Mixed emotions. Happy that I can finally move on, but sad that my marriage is ending.
Thats understandable, he replies to her as he puts his hand to her face and wipes her eyes. She moves her hand up to his and holds it for a moment. Dont cry, he says to her.
I just feel so alone, she replies to him looking into his eyes.
Youre not alone Helen, he says, not realizing that hes moving into towards her. Before he knows whats doing, his lips are on hers. She pulls him in for a more passionate kiss before he pulls back. Sorry, he quickly says, moving his hands off her face. I shouldnt have done that.
Cassie smiles back over to him, Its fine Shane. What happens between us will always just stay between us, she says to him, knowing that shes making good progress with him.
Scene Five - Twin Peaks Rehabilitation Center; Adams Room
Adam looks out the window standing on his own two feet for the first time in a long time. He smiles as he is able to finally walk on his own. Its been a long, hard year on him as he has struggled to regain his leg strength. Even now, he still has to use a cane to help him walk, but the fact that he is up and out of the hospital bed is that he needs to make himself feel happy and alive again. He cant wait to get out of the hospital and head home to see his daughter.
He sighs when he realizes that hell have to find a place to live since Helen has indicated that she wants a separation and possibly a divorce. He knows that he wont ask for the house because he doesnt want to up root Dawn from her home. He could move back into the condo at the Towers, but considering he is still using a cane, he doesnt know that it will be the best place for him.
He turns around when he hears the door open and two people come into his room. He recognizes one as a nurse from the facility, but the other individual, he isnt so sure who it is.
Hi, he says to them both.
Hi Mr. Black, the nurse smiles to him. This fellow was looking for you. I thought Id come and bring you your discharge papers.
Adam looks up with a grin on his face, You mean today is the day I get to go home? I knew it was soon, but I didnt expect it to be today. This is great news.
We are all happy for you, but we will miss you, she smiles back to him. When youve signed everything, bring them up front. Our shuttle van will take you home if youd like.
Thats great, thanks, he says as he watches the nurse leave the room. He looks to the other delivery man and nods, How can I help you?
I have these papers for you, he tells Adam as he passes them over to him. Looks like its your day for paper work.
What are these? Adam asks him as he takes the paper from his hand.
The delivery man shrugs, I dont know what they are, I just deliver them. Have a good day.
Adam waits until hes alone before he slowly walks over to a chair in his room and sits down. He opens the parcel and sighs when he reads the papers, Divorce papers, he says to himself as he feels his heart sink. I knew that you were thinking of a divorce but this seems so real, he says to himself, suddenly realizing that his life has changed drastically in the few short months that he was in the hospital.
Scene Six - The Pampa Grill
Are you sure youre alright? Eva asks Donovan as he sits next to her, still feeling shaken by his conversation with Ernesto earlier at the restaurant.
Im fine, Donovan replies to him, feeling a little bit calmer now that is around family and friends. He knows that Ernesto was trying to get to him and h doesnt want to let his father win. I know Victoria isnt here yet, but why did you guys call us over today? Do you have a plan to get Ernesto to admit that he was behind the attacks?
Thats not why we called you here, Will replies, unable to hide the large smile from his face.
Then whats going on? Donovan asks him, curious as to whats happening.
As Will is about to speak, Ernesto approaches their table. Your mother and I, we got engaged this morning. We are going to be married! Will reveals as a smile comes across Evas face, thrilled with the news.
Really? Donovan asks, happy that they have put everything back together. Thats great news. Im happy that you guys have found each other again.
Are you really okay with this? Eva asks her son.
Of course I am Mom. I just want us to be happy, Donovan replies to her.
Ernesto starts to laugh behind them, causing Donovan and Eva to turn and see him standing there, causing their smiles to quickly fade.
What the hell do you want? Will quickly asks him as he stands up, not wanting him there to ruin his moment. Youre not welcome here.
This is priceless, Ernesto replies to Will, his eyes on Eva. You engaged Eva? Really?
Eva looks at Ernesto and points her finger at him, Dont do this Ernesto. This is not the time, she warns him.
Ernesto arches his eyebrow, You just revealed that youre engaged Eva, when is a better time? Everyone should know the truth about whats going on here.
What the hell are you talking about? Will asks him, grinding his teeth at the man.
Eva cant marry you, Ernesto informs Will. Because shes still married to me. We never got divorced.
Wills mouth falls open as he looks at Ernesto then back at Eva, who covers her mouth in shock, horrified by Ernestos revelation.
Scene Seven - St. Josephs Church
Leah, this really isnt a good time, Jeff says to his ex-wife as he leaves his spot at the alter and moves towards her. Im about to marry Veronica. Anything you have to say to me can wait until after the ceremony.
Leah shakes her head and looks at him, Jeff you cant marry Veronica. You just cant.
And why the hell not? Veronica asks her, fed up with Leahs on going drama. I think youve created enough chaos, dont you? I want you to leave the church and let me marry Jeff!
Jeff, please, Leah ignores Veronica and keeps her focus on Jeff. You have to hear me out. Ive had a lot of time to think and I think that everything has happened for a reason.
Jeff arches his eyebrow and looks at Leah, What are you talking about?
Everything, Leah continues as a tear falls out of her eye. The truth about Paige coming out. You and me we keep being pulled together, she tells him as Veronica folds her arms. We kissed at Noahs grave so much has happened.
Jeff shakes his head at her, I dont know what youre trying to say.
Im saying, she says as she grabs his hand. Maybe this is our time to finally put a family together. A real family Jeff.
Oh God, Veronica yells at the two of them. I cant take this anymore. Im done!
Jeff watches as she throws her flowers on the ground and rushes out of the church. Veronica! Jeff calls, pushing past Leah as he begins to run after her.
Jeff, let just let her go, Leah calls after Jeff, who rushes after Veronica out of the church.
Jeff gets to the open door of the church and sees Veronicas car speeds off from the parking lot. He looks back and sees Leah, who is slowly approaching him and he sighs, wondering what he is going to do now.
