Scene One - The Diamond Boulevard

Kim opens the door to the large jewelry boutique shop and walks inside with a small grin on her face. After she was released from the hospital after her shooting, the first thing she wanted to do was get herself a new diamond to make herself feel better. Physically, the doctors have told her she will make a full recovery, now she just needs to make herself feel better mentally. A new large diamond will do just the trick.

"Mrs. Calimo," a sales woman approaches Kim, having recognized her. "I am so happy to see you out and about. The entire staff here were concerned when we heard about your recent medical issues."

Kim lifts her sunglasses and looks at the woman, "Thank you so much. That means a lot to me. I'm getting better each day, but you know what would make me great today? A new diamond!"

The sales woman smiles back to her, "Of course. Have you thought about a ring, a necklace or a pendant?"

Kim shakes her head, "I honestly have no idea. I'd like to see a little of everything. When I see the piece, I will know what I'm looking for exactly."

"Absolutely," the woman replies. "Do you want your own private room again?"

"Yes, that will be fine," Kim says as she starts to walk into the shop and towards the private shopping rooms. She freezes when she sees Jeff and Leah standing at one of the counters. She looks at them for a moment and wonders what they are doing in the store. There is a sales representative with them and they are obviously looking at some jewelry in the display case.

"Excuse me," Kim stops the sales woman that is beside her. "Can you tell me what those two are shopping for. I know them, but I don't want to pry."

The sales woman nods her head. "Of course, Mrs. Calimo. They are looking at engagement rings."

Kim feels her heart skip a beat at the words from her mouth. Jeff and Leah are getting engaged. She sighs wondering how Bob, and Robbie more to the point, will feel about this when they find out. She fears Robbie will be devastated to know that Leah is moving on with Jeff, the man she had an affair with, so quickly.

Scene Two - The Sugarbowl

Reese enters the busy coffeehouse looking for his caffeine fix for the day. He hasn't been sleeping very well lately as he can't stop thinking about Dean admitting to him that Dean drugged him the night he taped Reese in a solo video that is now on a gay porn website. Reese, before finding out the truth, was actually thinking of continuing down the path and doing another video because he was stunned by how much money was coming in from his first video. Now, he is appalled by how far Dean was willing to go to make him an internet star. Reese feels sick by the thoughts about it.

He enters the line to order and instantly notices a tall woman in front of him. She slowly turns her around, exposing her face to him as she reaches for her wallet in her large purse. "Oh wow," he says to himself loud enough for her to hear him.

She looks back and they make eye contact, "Sorry," he tells her. "It's just … I know who you are, and I am a big fan."

Savannah arches her eyebrow and gives Reese a fake smile. She has heard those lines from men so many times before, when in fact they really just want to get into her pants. "I'm sure you are," she replies back to him.

"No, really," Reese chuckles. "I'm Reese Wilkins, I was working at Robertson Enterprises on their last perfume launch, The Blooming Rose. I was one of their models. You're name is Savannah, right?"

Savannah turns all the way around and studies Reese's face for a moment before she does think that she recognizes his face as well. She finally nods back to him, "Savannah Pherson," she introduces herself. "You did a really good job with the Blooming Rose. The fashion show tie in was a huge success, people in New York were eating that stuff up."

Reese gets a huge smile on his face, "Do you want to talk more over a cup of coffee? I would love to hear more of your stories about New York. I'm sort of in between modeling jobs and would like your advice on where to go next."

Savannah nods and gets a twinkle in her eye as she has been in Twin Peaks for a few months now but she hasn't exactly made many friends. She could have a new friend in Reese, but also a model that would understand her work and career. "I'd like that a lot," she smiles to him.


"Your text message sounded urgent," Madeline tells Robbie as they sit at the window seat together. She recalls getting a message from him asking her to meet him first thing this morning at the coffeehouse. "I'm not sure how I can help you though."

Robbie looks back at the young PI and nods his head, "I'm sure it was a surprise," he tells her. "You know that I'm a cop."

Madeline feels her heart skip a beat wondering if she has done something illegal and not know about it. "Everyone knows that Robbie," she says with a slight grin on her face.

"I was working on a very important case," Robbie tells her. "It's a murder case, actually. Anyways, the higher ups at the station have pulled me from the case but I can't let this case go. It's too important for me not to find out the truth about what happened that night."

Madeline arches her eyebrow, "Is this about Ernesto Moretti?"

Robbie nods back to her, "I want to hire you to uncover the truth about his murder."

Madeline pauses and wonders if she should take this case on. She usually doesn't like to get involved in matters that the police are already handling, especially something like a murder case.

"I can tell by your face that you're hesitating, but I really need you Madeline," Robbie tells her. "Please tell me that you'll do this."

Madeline looks back at him, "I have to think about it Robbie, that's the best I can do right now. We'll be in touch when I've decided?"

Robbie sighs, "Yea, that's fine. Just please, don't take too long."


"You have no idea how much I missed the coffee from here when I was in the hospital," Trenyce smiles to Andy as they sit across from each other at a small table. "Hospital coffee is nasty."

Andy laughs at her, "I hope I never have to find out. This is great though, that we have this time together."

Trenyce nods back to him, "Yea, I don't have much time though. I have to get back to Andrew. He's going to visit Chris soon, so I want to spend as much time with him before he's gone."

"That makes sense," Andy tells her. "Look, something happened while you were in the hospital and I've been trying to find the best time tell you about it."

Trenyce arches her eyebrow, "What's going on? Please tell me it's not more bad news."

Andy sighs, "I'm afraid it is. It's about Donovan."

"What about him? What's going on?"

"He was arrested for killing his father," Andy reveals to a shocked Trenyce.

"What?" she gasps. "How could the police think that he actually killed his father? This is horrible news."

"I know," Andy tells her. "I'm sorry that I had to be the one to tell you but I thought you should know. He could use all the support he can get right now."

Trenyce nods back to him, "Of course he does," she tells him. "Thank you for telling me Andy. I will do anything I can to help him."


"You said you had an idea to help Donovan," Eva tells Victoria as they sit across from each other in the back booth of the coffee house. "I'm listening because we need all the ideas we can get right now."

Victoria nods back to her mother, but she feels apprehensive about what she is about to tell her. She knows that Eva probably won't like it, but she has come to a road block in thinking of anything else that would help her brother. The last thing Victoria wants is for her brother to get convicted for a murder that he didn't commit.

"I've decided to confess," Victoria reveals to Eva, who starts to choke on her coffee.

"You're what?" Eva asks, shocked after she's able to clear her throat.

"You heard me," Victoria tells her mother. "I would rather see myself behind bars than Donovan. He can't go to jail for something he didn't do."

Eva shakes her head, "That makes no sense Marbella. You would be sending yourself to jail for something that you didn't do. I would be in the same position that I am now, trying to save my child from something that they didn't do."

Victoria looks at her mother, "Don't you understand that I don't care about that? I don't want to see my brother behind bars anymore!"

"I know," Eva replies to her as she grabs Victoria's hand. "We have to work together to prove his innocence. We can't make things worse by admitting we are guilty when we are not. That won't do anything but create a completely new mess."

Victoria feels her eyes swell with water, "I guess you're right."

"We will prove his innocence Marbella and you know why? Because he is innocent. Donovan didn't kill Ernesto. The truth will prevail."

"I hope so Eva," Victoria says back to her. "I really hope so."

Scene Three - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home

Adam opens the door to his house and walks inside having just dropped Dawn off at daycare for the morning. He and Helen have decided to renovate the basement to erase any memories from the last year where Cassie had imprisoned Helen for a year and they decided not having Dawn around for that would be the best thing for everyone.

"Dawn was okay when you dropped her off?" Helen asks her husband as she comes around the corner and he takes his jacket off.

"Yea," he replies to her quickly. "I think she had missed seeing some of her friends actually. She didn't even turn around to see me off or anything."

"We've done a good job trying to make sure she knows that nothing has happened," Helen replies to him. "That's a good thing. She doesn't need to be confused."

"How are you holding up? It can't be easy adjusting to her again since you were away for so long."

Helen shakes her head, "It's been fine. Once you're a parent, it's like riding a bike. That doesn't leave you."

"You've always been so wonderful with her," Adam tells her as they move into a hug. "You feel good in my arms."

Helen smiles and looks into her husband's eyes, "I missed you so much Adam. You have no idea."

"I think I have an idea," he smiles back to her as he leans in and kisses her passionately. "How about you and I go to the bedroom before our contractor gets here. I'd love to show you how much I missed you."

Helen doesn't respond with words. She grabs his hand and moves him closer to the bedroom, wanting her husband just as much as he wants her.

Scene Four - The Towers, The Penthouse; Cory & Robin's Home

"What's on your agenda for the day?" Cory asks his wife as he takes his last sip of coffee from his cup and he turns to look at her.

Robin looks up from the table, where she's eating a fruit salad for breakfast. "I was hoping to go to Robertson Enterprises and get some work done."

Cory nods his head, "Well, just make sure you don't overdo it. Remember, you're with our child."

Robin laughs a little, "How could I forget? Do you see how big I'm getting?"

"I think you look beautiful," he replies to her as he comes up to her and gives her a kiss on the lips.

"You're so good to me," she tells him with a grin on her face. "Oh!" she suddenly says loudly.

"What is it?" he asks, concerned that something is wrong with the baby.

She grabs his hand and puts it on her belly, "Do you feel that?"

Cory waits until he feels something. His eyes light up as he looks into his wife's eyes, "Is that …?"

"The baby is kicking," Robin says back to him. "He or she is pretty strong!"

"I can't believe that," Cory replies as he still feels the baby kicking Robin's belly. "It's amazing to know that there's a tiny person growing in there."

"A tiny person we created together," Robin tells him as they lock eyes again. "I love you."

"I love you too," he says as he kisses her again. They exit the kiss when he hears the doorbell ring. "I'll grab it."

He rushes from the kitchen into the living and opens the door. He sees a delivery man standing there. He accepts the package and gives the delivery man some cash before sending him off on his way. Cory returns to the kitchen and places the package down in front of Robin.

"It's for you," he tells her as she looks up at him.

"I wonder what it is," she replies to him as she opens the package. Inside, she sees a card with a cracked mirror. "This is weird," she says as she opens the card. "Looks only last so long before they crack like a mirror, your biggest fan."

Cory grabs the card from her hand and reads it before he looks back at Robin, "This is the second time this guy has written you," he replies as Robin feels herself get a little pale. "For being a big fan, he's kind of morbid."

"I know," Robin tells him, feeling uneasy, as they odd fan parcels are becoming more regular and more creepy. "I don't like it Cory. I really don't like it."

Scene Five - The Sugarbowl

Reese throws his coffee cup in the trash can and starts to walk out of the coffeehouse when he sees Dean walk in. Dean immediately spots him and walks up to his boyfriend, hoping that they will be able to talk. Dean still remembers how Reese threw him out of the house on New Years Eve after he admitted that he drugged Reese the night the solo video was filmed.

"Reese," Dean says as he approaches him. "Can we talk for a minute?"

Reese arches his eyebrow, "I suppose it is inevitable that we talk."

Dean pulls him aside to a side table and they sit across from each other. "I haven't heard from you since New Year's."

"What do you want me to say?" Reese asks him. "You drugged me for crying out loud. I feel like I don't even know who you are."

"You do," Dean tells him, trying to make Reese realize what he did and why. "I want you to be successful. I know that this could be a great thing for you."

"So despite all of my protests, you thought to yourself it would be a good idea to drug me, so I would make the video anyways?" Reese asks him back, still shocked by what Dean has done. "Do you know how violated I feel?"

"I'm sorry," Dean replies to him. "I never wanted you to feel that way. I know what I did was wrong. But, your video is such a huge hit. You can't tell me that you're not at least thinking about the success of the video."

Reese nods, "I was, actually, yes. But now that I know what you did, I have no interest in the video. I don't want to do another video. I won't do another video. This thing is over."

"Please don't say that," Dean pleads with him. "We have a chance to make a crap load of money."

Reese laughs at him, "You're pathetic, you know that? All you care about is money. You don't care who hurt or what you have to do to make that money, you'll do it right? Well, guess what? That's not who I am. This is over!"

Dean watches Reese as he stands up and rushes out of the coffeehouse. Dean sighs and wonders what he should do next. He doesn't want to give up his hope of making more money off Reese's potential as a star.


Savannah is about to exit the coffeehouse, thrilled that she met a new friend in Reese. She has struggled to meet people since she moved to Twin Peaks so the fact that she was able to make a friend is a good thing for her. She looks over at the table that stretches out across the front window and she freezes when she spots Madeline.

She moves backwards for a moment and looks closer at Madeline. She shakes her head, "My God," she whispers to herself. "It's Patricia!"

Scene Six - The Calimo Mansion

Robbie opens the door to the mansion and walks into the living room, where he sees Bob and Kim sitting on the sofa together. He looks at them and can't help but feel differently about Kim since she helped save Natasha from Cassie's clutches. Not only did she save Natasha, but she almost lost her own life in the process. He recalls how he got a text message from her asking him to come to the mansion as soon as he was able too. He has no idea what's going on, but hopes that it's good news for a change. He doesn't know how much more bad news he can take right now.

"Hey," Robbie says to them causing his father and wife to look up at him. "I came as soon as I got your message. What's going on?"

"I think you should come have a seat with us," Bob tells his son, who walks to the chair that is across from the sofa. "We have some news for you and we wanted to be the ones to tell you so you didn't hear it from someone else."

Robbie arches his eyebrow, "Okay, should I be bracing myself for something?"

Kim looks at Bob and then over to Robbie, "I was shopping earlier," Kim tells him. "I was at Diamond Boulevard and I saw something."

"What did you see?" Robbie asks her, not sure where she's going with this.

"I saw two people buying an engagement ring," Kim recalls to him. "Those people were Jeff and Leah."

Robbie's eyes open wider as the words hit him like a ton of bricks. "Leah and Jeff are engaged?" he asks, dumbfounded by what he just learned. His divorce hasn't been finalized that long so he wasn't expecting them to be getting married so soon.

"Are you okay?" Bob asks his son.

"I … I don't know," Robbie admits as he falls back into the chair, trying to get his head around the news he just learned.
