Episode Theme song: "Missing"
Scene One - The Calimo Mansion
Kim stands at the French doors in the living room of the mansion in which she lives in. As she looks outside into the rain, another bright bolt of lightning streaks across the sky causing her to shiver a little bit. Her eyes continue to focus on the swimming pool in the large back yard. The area where she has been spending a lot of time this summer, mostly because she has been growing more and more attracted to the hot, young pool boy that Bob hired at the start of the spring. She knows that it's wrong to be attracted to the young man that is doing a service for her and her husband, but the more time that goes and Bob doesn't make love to her, the more she wants the man that cleans her pool. She bites her lip as she thinks about seeing him shirtless; his pecs and abs beautifully glisten in sun light. She wonders what his name is and what his voice sounds like. She shakes her head quickly knowing that she can't possibly start a conversation with him, but she has noticed that he looks over at her while she is out in the sun in her bikini. She finds herself wondering if he enjoys the view of her in her swim suit.
"Stop it," she whispers to herself. "You're married to Bob Calimo, you can't be thinking about the pool boy, regardless of how attractive he may be."
"Talking to yourself?" Bob asks his wife as he enters the living room just as another loud thunder bolt booms from the outside. "You know what they say about people who talk to themselves, don't you darling?"
Kim gets a slight grin on her face as she turns around to face her husband. "What's that? That we are good conversationalists? Welcome home. How as Switzerland?"
Bob chuckles a little. "Yes, of course that's what they say," he winks over at her. "Switzerland was very productive. Seriously though, what's on your mind?"
"You don't want to know," Kim quickly replies to him, trying to not think about the pool boy anymore.
"I do," Bob tells her as he folds his arms across his chest. "What's on your mind?"
Kim sighs and looks back at her husband. "The pool boy, actually," Kim reveals to him as Bob arches his eyebrow. "He's doing a good job, and I guess with the rain I just thought that he wasn't here today. Where did you find him, anyways?"
"He is doing a good job, isn't he?" Bob replies to her, seemingly oblivious to what Kim really enjoys about the young man. "He actually came to my office asking for a job at Roboto. His resume didn't seem to have the qualifications for the role that he applied for, but I liked his ambitions. So, he agreed to work here and in the mail room at Roboto."
"That's fantastic," Kim nods her head back to her husband. "Do you think he'll move up the corporate latter?"
Bob shrugs his shoulders. "That remains to be seen. He's a good kid though. Jonathan is his name his last name escapes me right now," Bob continues to tell Kim, who is making mental notes.
"I see, well, I suppose I shall tell him he's doing a good job next time I see him around," Kim replies with a slight grin. "What do you have planned for the rest of the day?"
Bob looks back at her gulping a little. "Have you forgotten? I have to go to the hospital."
Kim's eyes open wider. "The hospital?" she asks him. "Why do you have to go to the hospital?"
"Didn't I tell you? I could have sworn that I had told you about this," he replies to her, knowing very well that he hadn't spoken to his wife about his appointment. He doesn't want anyone to know what he is up too. "I am just having a simple procedure done this evening. I won't be long, and I will be home this evening."
Kim shakes her head. "What kind of procedure? I am worried about you Bob!"
Bob turns back around and pulls her into a hug. "You have nothing to worry about. I don't want to upset you, which is why I don't want you to come with me. There is nothing to be concerned about, okay?"
Kim exits the embrace and looks up at her husband. "I love you Bob. I wish you would tell me everything that is going on with you."
Bob kisses her forehand. "How about before I go, I will get Rosario to open you a bottle of red wine? I know you've been eyeing that 2006 Malbec in the wine cellar. Does that sound nice?"
Kim fakes a smile and nods her head; she has grown used to knowing when Bob is pushing her away because he doesn't want her to know what is going on with him. "That sounds lovely. Shall I wait up for you?"
Bob shakes his head as they hear another thunder boom in the sky. "No, that's not necessary. I must get going, enjoy your evening my love."
"You too," she replies to him, wondering what's going on with her husband. The fact that he isn't telling her what is going on, makes her wonder more about Jonathan, the pool boy, as well. Maybe she should start a conversation with this William. It could be more than she's getting from her husband right now.
Scene Two - The Riverside Delicatessen
Reese takes a bit of his sandwich and then looks over at his sister, Madeline. The two of them decided to have a late dinner together as they haven't seen each other for a few days. While they live together, they don't often get to see each other because of their conflicting schedules. Reese also really needs to talk to Madeline as he is feeling conflicted with his recent decision, albeit a drunken decision, to sleep with Craig despite Craig being in a relationship with Andy. He knows that it was a mistake but he doesn't know where to go from here. He doesn't want to be a home wrecker, but he doesn't know if he can keep this secret as Craig asked him too. On the hand he doesn't want to ruin another relationship like he did with JC and Andy.
"You're quiet," Madeline observes to her twin brother. "I can tell something is going on with you, so talk to me, what's up?"
Reese grins at her as he loves how well Madeline can read him. "You know me too well."
"It's a part of being a twin Reese," Madeline winks back over to him. "Now spill it, what's up?"
Reese sighs and looks over at her. "Remember a couple of weeks ago when we went out to the club to celebrate the end of the entire Dean fiasco?" Reese asks her as she nods her back to him. "I think I made a mistake after you and Will left."
Madeline arches her eyebrow. "What kind of a mistake?"
Reese pauses and wonders if he should reveal it all to his sister. "Forget it, I think I've said too much."
"Reese," Madeline replies in a stern voice, as lightning flashes across the sky. "Tell me what's going on."
Reese laughs a little. "I'm not going to get out of this, am I?" he asks her as she shakes her head no. "Okay, I'll tell you what's going on."
"What did you just say?" a shocked Trenyce asks Savannah at their table. Savannah just came over to meet Andrew for the first time and she called Andrew her baby. Trenyce has no idea what Savannah is talking about, but she doesn't like it, not one bit. "This is my son Andrew, Savannah."
Savannah feels water rushing into her eyes as thunder booms in the background. For so long she has wondered what her child would look like and now that she can see Andrew, she firmly believes that the child in front of her is the one she gave birth too. She has one picture of her baby that Dave gave her and she does think that Andrew is the same boy from the picture. She can't believe that after all this time, her child is in front of her.
"I think that's my baby," Savannah finally manages to say in between her gasping breaths. She feels her heart start to race, unable to believe what is happening. "I think I have to sit down. I feel faint."
Trenyce grabs a chair from another table and Savannah sits down on it quickly. "I know that you lost your son Savannah," Trenyce starts to tell her, not believing this claim. "But Andrew is my son. I can assure you that he is my child."
Savannah wipes her damp eyes. "I'm sorry Trenyce," she finally replies to her friend. "I don't know what has come over me. I just saw Andrew and he looks so much like what I have envisioned my son to have looked like."
Trenyce puts her hand on Savannah's shoulder. "It's okay Savannah," Trenyce tells her. "I still want to help you find your son. I want to help you find your baby."
Savannah looks over at Andrew again as more lightening streaks across the sky. "He really does look like the baby in the picture Dave gave to me," Savannah tells Trenyce, who arches her eyebrow. "I just can't handle this. He could be my child."
Trenyce feels her blood start to boil a little. She understands that Savannah lost her child, but she will not tolerate Savannah claiming Andrew is her child. "We are leaving Andrew," Trenyce announces to her son. "Savannah, I'm sorry that you lost your child but do not ever mention this crazy idea of yours again. You are going to hurt too many people with this nonsense. Andrew is my son, not yours. You can't go around saying every 4 year old is your son. I get that you're upset, but this is absolutely crazy."
Savannah is about to reply but she sees Trenyce rush out with Andrew. She opens her purse and finds the picture of her baby and examines it. "That is my son. Andrew is my son," she gasps as she looks at the picture again positive that the child she just saw is her own, as another loud thunder bolt erupts in the sky.
Scene Three - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home
"Thanks for coming over today," Helen tells Shane and Natasha as they sit on the sofa in the living room the Black home. "We really appreciate it."
Natasha smiles to her friend and then looks over at Adam, who is sitting in an arm chair across the room. "It's no worries; it sounded important on the phone. You guys know that Shane and I are always here for you guys."
"Did Shane fill you in on the latest?" Adam asks her back, knowing that Natasha was in court when the paternity test came back on Cassie's child and it proved that Adam is the father of the baby.
Natasha nods her head back. "I'm so sorry that this is happening to you guys. How are you coping? This is some storm we are having."
Helen shrugs a little. "I can't say that it has been easy. But we are surviving," she tells everyone. "That's part of the reason we asked you over. We need your help."
Natasha arches her eyebrow. "What kind of help?"
"You know we will do whatever we can," Shane tells them.
"We've decided that we can't let Cassie raise the baby. There's no way we can let her have the child. Who knows how she could raise the baby," Adam informs them, as he looks at Helen to ensure she hasn't changed her mind. "We want to sue her for custody of the baby. That's where you come in Natasha."
Natasha nods her head, happy to hear this news. "It's not often that people sue for custody before a child is even born, but I would be happy to look into this for you guys. I know that you will have a very strong case against Cassie, especially after everything that she's done to you."
"Thank you Natasha," Helen smiles back to her. "This really means a lot to us. We knew we could count on you."
"Of course," Natasha replies to them.
Scene Four - The Cascade Apartments, Apartment 307; Donovan's Home
"There was a time when I never thought I would see this place again," Donovan tells Victoria as he brings her a glass of red wine into the living room. He has been released from the hospital following the ordeal of getting some of the lethal injection put into his system; he is relieved that the entire nightmare of being charged for Ernesto's murder is behind him. He wants nothing more than to forget the entire thing and move forward with his life.
"I know that you were scared," Victoria replies to him as she takes a sip of her wine. "I'm just sorry that it took Robbie and I so long to find the evidence to clear you."
"At least you found it," Donovan smiles to her knowing that he wouldn't be here right now if she and Robbie hadn't discovered that Jonas was the one that killed Ernesto. "Thank you so much again for everything that you did for me."
Victoria grabs her brother's hand. "You know that I would do anything for you, right Donovan? I love you so much and I am always going to be in your corner."
"I know and I am so grateful," he tells her as he feels water go to his eyes. "How are you and Robbie doing?"
Victoria wipes her eyes before she replies to him, as lightning brightens the sky behind them. "Things are really good between us. We grew a lot closer during our time in Italy. He was so disappointed to lose custody of Paige, but I think it was the final straw that he was able to put all of that to rest. He really seems to be in a good place now."
Donovan nods his head back. "I'm glad he's treating you well. After everything we've been through, you deserve to have a good man in your life like Robbie."
"What about you Donovan?" Victoria asks her brother. "Now that this mess with Dad is behind us, do you think it's time we found you a man?"
Donovan starts to choke on his wine after hearing her. He collects himself before he grins over at Victoria. "I don't think that will be happening anytime soon. I want to focus on me for a while. Getting back into the swing of things at Robertson and reconnecting with you and Mom and my friends. I just want to chill out for a while."
Victoria nods back to him. "I guess that's allowed," she winks over at him. "Just not forever, okay?"
Scene Five - Twin Peaks Police Department
"We have to find Robin," Cory tells Robbie and Dominick as they enter Robbie's office at the police station. "The longer she's gone, the more worried I get." Cory knows that it has been hours since Robin went missing. The longer she is missing, the worst this gets in his mind. And the more worry he starts to have as well.
"We have to be patient," Dominick tells everyone, even though he's having a hard time calming down himself. "We will find Robin. We will find her Cory, don't worry about that."
"He's right," Robbie tells Cory as he sits down at his desk. "I was able to get my hands on the Robertson Enterprises security footage. With this, we should be able to see everything that happened that day. As well as any vehicles that left the building while the smoke bomb went off. Whoever Robin left with is on this footage."
"Meaning, we should be able to find Robin then. Hopefully today," Cory tells them, getting excited knowing that they are closing in on finding his wife as another boom of thunder is heard.
At the Calimo cabin, the bright blue light fills the master bedroom as the rain continues pour outside. Liam quickly re-enters the bedroom and looks over at Robin, who is laying in the bed as her water broke and she has gone into labour.
"I got some damp cloths for your forehead," he says quickly as walks over to the bed where Robin is laying on. "Let me put this on your head."
"I need to go to the hospital Liam," she replies with a worry in her voice. "I think something is wrong."
"Nothing is wrong," he tells her. "You're in labour. Your baby will be fine. I promise everything will be okay."
"Ahhh!" she screams out in pain as another contraction hits her. "Oh my God!"
"Breath Robin, remember your breathing," Liam tries to coach her as lightning streaks across the sky.
"My baby!" she cries as another contraction hits Robin. "Ahhhh!"
"Look at that car," Robbie says as he points to the screen, which is showing a car leaving the Robertson Enterprises parkade. "That must be the car that Robin left in, based on all the times of the events."
"So how do we track where that car went?" Cory asks, realizing that they still have to know where the car went before they can find Robin.
"Leave that to me," Dominick says to them as he picks up his cell phone and dials a number, knowing who he can call to help.
"The baby is coming," Liam tells Robin as she continues to push, as another thunder bolt erupts in the sky. "You're almost there, keep going. I can see the head."
Robin pushes again hard and she screams out in pain. "I don't know how much I can do," Robin tells him. "I'm so tired Liam."
"One more push should do the trick. You can do it Robin. You're almost done," he encourages her, hoping that everything will be fine.
Robin pushes one more time and soon the baby is in Liam's arms. He wraps the child in a towel. "It is a girl," he tells her as he looks over at Robin, who lays back into the bed exhausted.
"I want my baby! Give me my baby!" Robin says to him as the sweat continues to drip off her forehead.
Liam looks over at Robin and then looks down at the child in his arms. Another lightning flashes in the sky as the storm continues outside.
"Why isn't she crying?" Robin suddenly asks as she sits up in the bed. "What's wrong with my baby Liam!?"
Liam looks down at the baby and then over at Robin. "She's not breathing," he whispers as horror comes across Robin's face.
"Do something! Make her breathe! Make her breathe!" Robin screams at him as thunder booms in the background. "Make my baby breathe!"
"She was never breathing," he quietly informs her. "The baby is stillborn."
