Scene One - The State Penitentiary

Daisy takes a deep breath as she tries to calm her nerves. She didn't tell anyone where she was going today. She just knew that she had to do this. Savannah has claimed that she had Dave's child, but she has never mentioned where the baby may be. One way or another, she and Vinny have to get to the truth; Which is why she came here today. They have to know if Vinny has a nephew out there.

As she looks around, she hopes that she is doing the right thing. By coming to the state prison, she is going back to a time of her life that she thought was over and behind her. Already, her mind is going back to the times she spent with Dave and Brett, always believing that they were Vinny. While so much has happened since that time, she still can't believe that they were posing as Vinny for so many years all the while holding him hostage in their family home. She still can't believe all the lies they told.

She shakes her head, "Despite all of that going on, Dave still had time to go to New York and carry on some kind of relationship with Savannah?" she asks herself wondering if Savannah is lying about the story she told. She has to ask herself the question as to why Savannah would like about something like that, and the only thing she can think of is that Savannah would be after the Victors money. "But she is a successful model. She doesn't really need money from Vinny."

Before she can continue to think of possibilities to herself, a guard approaches her. "Ms. Davenport?" he calls out to her. "This way please."

Daisy stands up and tries to calm the butterflies that she has her stomach. "Are you ready?" the guard asks her as Daisy starts to walk closer to him.

She nods back to him, "As ready as I will ever be."

They enter a hallway and walk towards an opening where there are desks that have plexi-glass between them. The guard points to the first cubical, "That's where you can have a seat. The prisoner shouldn't be too much longer."

Daisy nods uneasily as she slowly walks overt to her chair. She sits down and looks across at the empty chair. Soon, she hears a large door opening and a buzzer going off. Within a few moments, a man wearing an orange jump suit is in front of her. He sits down across from Daisy and looks at Daisy in surprise. He picks up the telephone and waits until Daisy has her receiver in her hand. "I can't believe you're here," he says to her. "You've never come to see me."

"Hello Brett," Daisy says looking into his eyes.

Scene Two - Robertson Enterprises; Trenyce's Office

Trenyce sits at her sketch board looking over some of her latest designs that she wants to have in her next line. Dominick has informed her that he hired a new model and he would like Trenyce and the model to work closely together on the line as he feels like Trenyce will be inspired when she meets the new girl. Trenyce quickly glances at the large watch on her wrist and realizes that the model should be arriving at her office any moment now for their meeting as it is already a few minutes late.

"Sorry I'm late," a voice calls from the doorway of the office. "I wanted to get a coffee before the meeting. I brought you one too."

Trenyce turns and is taken aback by how beautiful Savannah is at first sight. The model is tall, thin and has a beautiful face. A couple of years ago, Savannah would be the ideal physical appearance that Trenyce would have longed for. After everything she went through with her eating disorder, Trenyce has learned she's amazing in her own way.

"Thank you for the coffee," Trenyce says as she stands up and walks over to Savannah. "I'm Trenyce Davenport."

"Savannah Pherson," she replies as they shake hands.

"Dominick was right," Trenyce tells her. "You are very pretty. I can see how you've been a model for so many years."

Savannah blushes a little, and shrugs her shoulders. "There's a downside to it all, you know? Everyone thinks you have it all together all the time and everyone always knows who you are. That can be a bit tiring. I actually envy someone like you because you can just lead your normal, every day life."

Trenyce is surprised by Savannah's admission. She never thought of modelling or fame in that context before. "Sometimes I think life in Twin Peaks is anything but normal," Trenyce replies with a small chuckle.

As Savannah starts to walk over to the sketch board, she happens to notice a picture of Andrew on Trenyce's desk. She stops and looks at the child picking up the picture of Andrew in his Halloween costume. "Is this your son?"

Trenyce turns around with a smile on her face. "Yes, his name is Andrew. He's my pride and joy. He was a super hero last year for Halloween, hence the mask."

"He's so cute!" Savannah tells her, suddenly feeling emotional over the fact that she doesn't have her child with her.

"Are you okay?" Trenyce asks, noticing how Savannah suddenly got tears in her eyes.

Savannah nods her head back, "I'm fine. Let's get down to work, okay?"

Scene Three - The Wilkins Estate; Reese & Madeline's Home

"I wasn't expecting to see you here today," Madeline tells Will as she lets him into their house. She decided to give herself a day off from work so she could relax at home. She hadn't told anyone about her plan, so seeing Will show up unexpectedly is certainly a surprise for her. "What's going on?"

Will looks back at Madeline as they enter the living room. "I guess I just needed to see a friendly face." He recalls how he and Eva recently officially ended their relationship which is sad for him. He spent so much time and energy into the relationship, it's always upsetting when it doesn't work out. He couldn't cope with anymore of her secrets or lies, however.

Madeline arches her eyebrow, "You look sad about something. Talk to me, what's happened?"

Will gives her half a smile back. "You know me so well," he replies to her in a soft voice. "I saw Eva the other day."

"I take it that it didn't go well?"

Will shakes his head, "I told her we had no chance at a future together."

"Oh Will," Madeline replies to him as she walks closer.

"You know, you put all this effort into something, into someone and when it ends, you're just left feeling a little empty," he says back to her. "I know it was the right thing to do though. I couldn't handle anymore of her secrets."

"Knowing it was the right thing doesn't make it any easier," Madeline tells him as she moves closer to him. "I've been there myself a few times. Can I do anything?"

Will shakes his head. "Just being here makes it better." Suddenly, he starts to laugh a little.

"What's so funny?" she asks, not sure of why he is laughing.

He shrugs his shoulders. "I never did tell Eva that we kissed on New Years Eve. I guess I never will have to tell her now."

Madeline smiles. "Well, yea, there's no point really."

"And now I'm free to do whatever I want," he quickly replies to her as he moves closer to her. "And kiss whomever I want."

She looks into his eyes and moves closer to him. They lock lips and she runs her hand through his hand, pulling him deeper to her. They part lips and look at each other for a moment. "Is Reese home?" he asks her in a whisper as she shakes her head no. He kisses her passionately again as she begins to lead him to the bedroom.

Scene Four - Dominick's Townhouse

"I can't believe Robbie can file for custody so late after your divorce is already finalized," Robin tells Leah as they sit on the sofa in their father's townhouse. "I mean, shouldn't he have filed the claim with the divorce papers."

"I'm afraid that's not how it works," Dominick replies to them both as he stands by the mantel. "Robbie can claim custody whenever he wants too. The thing that will hurt him is that he's not Paige's biological father."

"But he was her father for the first few years of her life," Jeff quietly reminds them, still upset that he wasn't always known as Paige's father. "The judge may take sympathy with him for all the lies that were told."

Leah puts her head down. She knows that he didn't mean to rub salt in the wounds, but every time she thinks about the lies that she told for so many years, she kicks herself. Now, her worst fears are coming true as she may lose her daughter because Robbie wants full custody. "I can't lose Paige," she finally tells them all. "I can't lose my little girl."

"We will do everything we can to make sure that you don't lose Paige," Dominick replies to her. "Robbie is just throwing a tantrum because he found out you and Jeff are together now as a family with Paige."

"He's right Leah," Jeff tells her as he looks at her. "We won't lose Paige because Robbie is throwing some fissy fit. We have to stay strong and united."

"And I have an idea," Dominick announces to them both. "I want you both to come work for me at Robertson Enterprises. I know you just quit Roboto, so the fact that you'll both have steady jobs at a huge corporation will really impress the judge."

Leah nods her head, "Thank you Daddy."

"Of course," Dominick replies. "Just remember what I said, you can fight Robbie on this. You will win this battle."

Robin stands up from the sofa and walks over to the bar where she pours herself a glass of water. Dominick soon emerges behind her. "Robin, are you okay?"

Robin turns to her father and smiles. "I'm fine Daddy," she says as she puts her hand on her stomach. She is in reality, not fine as she can't stop thinking about the weird fan mail that she has been receiving lately.

"I can tell that something is troubling you," Dominick replies to her. "I know that you're here supporting your sister, but if something is going on with you, I want to know about it."

Robin sighs, "You know me so well." She pauses and takes another drink of her water. "I've been receiving fan mail and some of it is just … weird," she informs him.

Dominick arches his eyebrow. "You've been modelling for some time now, you must be used to getting fan mail by now?"

Robin nods her head back, "I am yes. But this stuff is just creepy. I don't know Daddy, it's just been leaving a bad taste in my mouth."

"If you get another one of these letters, you let me know, okay?" Dominick asks as he moves up and hugs his daughter. "I don't want anything to upset you right now or the baby."

"Thank you Daddy," she says as she hugs him back.

Scene Five - The Legal Firm

Natasha sits at her desk trying to focus on some work in front of her but her mind is wandering back to the other day when Shane confronted her about believing Cassie's story that she is pregnant with Shane's child. She wishes that she hadn't believed Cassie's claim, but she also wishes that Shane would cut her some more slack regarding Cassie. He, more than anyone, should know how easy it is to get caught up in Cassie's wicked web of lies. She only hopes that he will come around and forgive her for believing Cassie.

"Damn you Cassie," she whispers to herself. "When will you stop ruining my life?"

She looks up when she hears a knock on her door and she is surprised to see Reese standing there. "Reese," she says standing up and greeting him into her office. "This is a surprise. I haven't seen you here since your father was still working here."

Reese looks around, "Yea, it's been awhile. I like what you've done with the place."

"I hope it wasn't too insensitive, mentioning Preston to you."

Reese shakes his head, "Not at all Natasha. He would be very proud of what you've done with the firm since he passed."

"Thank you, that's very sweet of you to say. I looked up to him a lot," Natasha tells him. "So, what brings you by today? I hope you're not in some kind of trouble?"

Reese sits across from her and arches his eyebrow. "I don't know if I am or not. I need to know where I stand and what my legal rights are on something."

"Okay," Natasha slowly replies, unsure of where Reese is going with this. "I'll need more information. What kind of rights are you enquiring about?"

"This will stay between us, right?" Reese asks as Natasha nods her head back to him. "I was drugged a few months ago. While I was high, I was filmed. That film is now online on a website. I have no recollection of making this video but I don't want it online for anyone to see it. How can I remove it from the internet?"

"No one can post forms of you online without your permission," Natasha quickly replies back to him. "Whoever posted this video of you could be sued. They have no right to use you or any part of you without your permission."

Reese nods and smiles back to her, "Thanks Natasha, this is the information that I really needed to know."

"I'm glad I could help Reese," Natasha smiles back to him. "Let me know if I can help in any other way."

Scene Six - Twin Peaks General Hospital; Cassie's Room

Shane walks quickly up to Cassie's hospital room and peers through the small glass window on the door. He can see her sleeping in her bed. He moves back and can't believe that she is still trying to cause trouble between him and Natasha, despite everything that has happened. He wishes that she would learn that he loves Natasha and nothing she can say or do will change that.

He opens the door and when it closes, Cassie stirs in the bed and opens her eyes to see him. She gets a small smile on her face. "Shane. What a nice surprise this is."

Shane crosses his arms and looks at her. "This isn't a social call, don't get too excited."

"Let me guess, you spoke to Natasha," she quickly replies to him knowing that she told Natasha that she is pregnant with Shane's baby, which is impossible since they never slept together. "She's so easy to get riled up."

"This isn't a game Cassie!" Shane spits back at her. "You keep playing with people's lives and it has to end."

Cassie laughs. "Oh Shane," she quickly says back. "If only you would realize how much I love you and how we are meant to be together, everything else would fall into place."

"I don't love you Cassie. I will never love you. Not now, not ever!" Shane yells back at her. "The sooner you get that through your head, the better. How could you claim I was the father of your baby? I never had sex with you."

"But you wanted too," Cassie reminds him. "That day in your office, you kissed me. We were so close to making love, but Natasha of course had to get in the way."

"Because I love her," Shane reminds her, causing Cassie to feel hurt. "That will never change Cassie. I'm married to the woman I love."

Cassie turns and faces him. "You're not the father of this baby, I can admit that," she says with another wicked grin on her face. "But there is something that you need to realize Shane."

"What's that?"

"You're not married to Natasha," she reveals in a whisper. "Because you're still legally married to me."

Scene Seven - The State Penitentiary

"It is so good to see you," Brett tells Daisy as they sit across from each other. "You have no idea how much I've missed you."

"I'm not here to play nice Brett," Daisy quickly replies to him. "I still haven't forgave you for all the lies you told me. For all the lives you could have ruined with your scheme."

"Don't you think I've paid for that? I've been locked in this cell for years …"

"Just like the cell you had Vinny in for years," Daisy interrupts him. "I'd say it's karma, wouldn't you?"

"So, you drove all this way to what? Insult me?" Brett asks, confused as to her presence at the jail.

"No," Daisy replies to him. "I came because I need answers. I need to know what else was going on in Dave's life before he died."

Brett's eyes open wider in confusion. "I don't understand. What do you mean?"

Daisy leans forward, "Was he dating a woman? Was he involved with someone by the name of Savannah Pherson?"
