Scene One - St. Joseph's Church

Bob quickly moves into his seat next to Kim at the church as Jeff and Leah's wedding is about to begin. Kim looks at her husband and can see that he has a grin on his face. She can't place it, but she suspects that he is planning something to stop the wedding. And why? She knows that Bob doesn't care if Leah and Jeff are married or not; no, this goes back to his never ending feud with Dominick. Kim sighs heavily and doesn't know how much more of this back and forth with Dominick she can handle. She knows that their rivalry goes back to Sofia, but she has been gone for years. It's time to let this all go, in Kim's mind.

"What are you planning now?" she whispers to him, as he turns to face his wife.

Bob arches his eyebrow. "What do you mean, darling?"

"I know that look on your face Bob," Kim replies sternly. "I wish you would stop this feud with Dominick. Leah and Jeff deserve to have their day of happiness, don't they?"

"Wait and see," Bob says back to her. "What I'm planning should make Leah very, very happy."

Kim rolls her eyes as she has no idea what Bob is saying. She has a feeling, though, that she will be finding out soon. She just hopes that Bob's plan doesn't hurt anyone.


The wedding music starts to play causing the guests to quiet down. Robin appears at the back of the church and slowly walks down the aisle. She looks at Cory and smiles at him. As Cory watches his wife, he can't help but wonder how she is holding up. He can't get it out of his mind that Robin had a break down the day before at the wedding rehearsal. He shakes his head and knows that he can focus on that after the wedding. He has to make sure that she is alright.

Everyone stands when Leah and Dominick appear at the back of the church next. Leah's simple white wedding dress flows behind her. Dominick smiles as he walks his daughter down the aisle and they see Jeff waiting for them at the altar. They stop when they have arrived and Dominick shakes Jeff's hand as Leah moves next to her fiancé. She smiles back at Dominick, who moves back to his seat in the front pew.

"Ladies and gentlemen," Father Murphy begins the ceremony. "We are gathered here today to celebrate the union of this man, Jeffrey Claus, and this woman, Leah Robertson in holy matrimony."

Leah smiles back at Jeff as she tries to fight back her tears in her eyes. After everything she and Jeff have been through, she has a hard time believing that she is about to marry him again. Jeff squeezes her hand and mouths the words, "I love you" to her.

In the back pew, Bob quickly checks his watch and wonders where his surprise is. He checks his phone and doesn't see any new messages. Kim gives her husband an evil eye, still upset that he is planning to do something to try to stop the wedding.

"Before we continue, I have to ask the question," Father Murphy feels his heart skip a beat when he speaks. Usually, this is the easy part of the ceremony but the last few weddings in Twin Peaks haven't gone as smoothly as he would have liked. "Is there anyone that knows a reason why these two should not be joined in this union? Please, speak now or forever hold your peace."

Dominick turns around and glares at Bob as everyone is waiting for him to say something. Bob looks up from his phone and gets an even bigger smile on his face. He slowly stands up, as Kim's hand moves up to his to try to pull him back down. "I have something to say," Bob announces to everyone. "Leah, Jeff, I'm so sorry to interrupt your moment. I don't have anything against you two being married if that's what you wish. But there's someone missing from this wedding."

"That's enough Bob!" Dominick interrupts his rival as he stands up. "This is not the time or place for this!"

"A wedding for Leah is not the time for this?" Bob questions him as he walks down the aisle. "I'm about to give Leah the best wedding gift of her life."

"What are you talking about Bob?" Leah asks moving closer to him. "Daddy, no, I want to hear him out." Leah tells Dominick as Dominick was about to silence her.

"I'll show you," Bob reveals to her, as his hand moves to the back of the church. A woman sits in a wheel chair, all dressed in black. Her long red hair is covering most of her face.

Leah shakes her head in confusion. "I don't understand, who is she?"

Dominick fumes as he looks at Bob. "Do you want to tell her?" Bob asks his rival, who fumes back to him. "She's your mother Leah. Felicia Robertson is alive and well."

Leah's mouth drops open as she gets tears in her eyes and she looks to Dominick for answers, as he puts his hand over his face and the blood from his face drains. Leah shakes her head in confusion.

"This isn't possible," she whispers as she looks back at the woman sitting in the wheel chair.

Scene Two - St. Joseph's Church

Within a few minutes of Bob's big reveal, the guests have started to move around the church to give Leah, Dominick and her mother some time alone. Cory moves over to Robin, who is sitting in the pew looking into space. Cory was planning on waiting until after the wedding to have a conversation with his wife, but he knows that with the wedding delayed indefinitely, there's no time like the present to have the discussion.

"How are you feeling?" he asks as he sits next to her and grabs her hand.

"I'm fine," Robin replies with half a grin and half a roll of the eyes. "I wish everyone would stop thinking that I'm not okay. I'm …," she continues to tell her husband. She pauses for a moment as she feels her eyes swell with water. "I still miss our daughter every day Cory. That won't go away overnight. But I'm telling you, I'm fine."

Cory nods his head back to her. "I am worried about you Robin. Your Dad told me about yesterday. I just think … maybe it would be best if we saw someone."

Robin's eyes open wider. "You mean a shrink? You think I need therapy?"

"Calm down," Cory replies to her as he squeezes her hand. "I'm suggesting that we both go. We both lost someone that we weren't expecting too. It could be a good thing for both of us."

Robin shakes her head as she wipes her eyes dry. "I don't want to pretend to care about some stranger and profess my feelings about our baby to him or her. I just don't Cory. I … I just need time to grieve. And I'll be fine. I promise you, I'll be fine."

Cory nods his head looks away from his wife. He knows what she is saying but he can't help but think that there's more to it than just this. If Robin spaced out to the point where she thought Liam was back and trying to take their baby again, she could need professional help. But he can't force the situation. He will try again, soon, because he can't let her go through this alone.


"I thought I saw you," Reese announces to Andy as he comes up to him. Reese isn't sure if this is a good idea as he has been feeling guilty about sleeping with Craig behind Andy's back, but when he saw Andy, he found himself walking towards him. He doesn't want to cause trouble; he wants to start mending fences.

"Hi Reese," Andy gives him half a smile, happy to see his ex. While they haven't always gotten along, Andy has always wanted the best for Reese.

"Craig's not here?" Reese asks him quickly, hoping to get that out of the way.

"He should be here soon," Andy replies to him. "He had a late appointment at the hospital. He really wanted to be here though."

Reese nods back to him. "I know things have been awkward between us lately Andy," Reese finds himself opening his heart to his ex-boyfriend. "But I hope you know that I don't want it to be that way. You and I have been through a lot together."

Andy smirks back to him. "Have we ever. You were my first love Reese. I have so many fond memories of our time together."

"Then maybe we can agree to put everything behind us and start fresh?" Reese asks him, hoping that making a clean slate with Andy will allow him to stop feeling so bad about everything that has happened. It's his way of trying to make things right without revealing the truth.

Andy nods back to him and hugs him. "I'd like that Reese. I'd like us to be close like we once were."

Reese feels Andy's arms around and closes his eyes. "I'd like that too Andy," Reese whispers back into his ear.

In the back of the church, Craig walks in and looks around trying to find Andy. His eyes move over and spots Andy in the arms of Reese. Craig gulps wondering what is going on with his boyfriend and his former one time lover.

Scene Three - Roboto

Kim storms through the hallways of Roboto. She is livid with her husband for stopping the wedding and announcing that Felicia Robertson is in fact alive. She knows that he was doing this to cause problems for Dominick and his entire family. It became obvious at the church that Dominick knew Leah's mother had been alive all these years and for whatever reason, he kept her away from Leah and the family. What she hates though, is that Bob used Leah's wedding to drop the secret. Why couldn't he wait until after or before the wedding? Kim knows that Bob wanted to hurt Dominick in the best way he could: at the wedding because he's not only hurting Dominick but he's hurting Dominick's loved ones. To Kim, this feud has to end before someone else gets hurt.

Kim reaches an office door and pauses before she puts her hand on the door knob. She opens the door and sees Johnny sitting at his desk. His suit jacket is off and his tie is undone a little. She remembers how she slept with him and they both agreed that it couldn't happen again. In reality, she doesn't even know why she's here now. After the wedding paused so Leah and Dominick could speak, Kim left the church. She had to get away from her husband. She couldn't stand the sight of Bob in that moment. This was the first place she thought of going.

"I'm not interrupting am I?" she finally speaks, causing the young man to look up from his work.

Johnny smiles and welcomes her into her office. "That dress looks amazing on you," he notes how short the dress Kim is wearing. She shuts the office door and turns back around to face him.

"Thank you," she replies to him. "I know I said we should stop seeing each other."

"But?" he asks with a glimmer in his eye. He would always respect Kim's decisions, but he likes having sex with her. She's incredibly hot and part of the attraction is the fact that she is his boss's wife. He gets off to that kind of thing. "Here you are."

Kim nods back to him. "I've had a rough afternoon," she admits to him.

He stands up and comes up behind her. She can feel him press into her as their hands lock. His mouth starts caressing her neck. She leans back, allowing him to roam even more. "We shouldn't do this."

"You're right," he whispers back to her as he grinds into her. "This will be the last time. I promise."

She turns around and kisses him hard as her hands tug his shirt out from his pants. She starts unbuttoning his shirt as they continue to kiss. "I'll promise this will be the best time yet too," he whispers in-between kisses.

"I hope so," she moans back to him. "I need you Johnny."

Scene Four - The State Penitentiary

Madeline takes a deep breath as she looks around the waiting room that she's in. She has been feeling the walls closing in on her lately and she needed to come and get some kind of confirmation of what is happening. Ever since Savannah confronted her and told Madeline that she knows what happened all those years ago, Madeline has felt like it's been hard to breathe. She was so positive that this entire part of her life was in the past and behind her. Now, everything is about to explode in her face and she doesn't know how to stop it. But she has to stop it; no one can know the truth.

"And I have to stop it," she whispers to herself as she waits. "I can't let anyone know what happened. My life would be over if it did. No one would understand."

"Ms. Wilkins?" a woman's voice calls out to Madeline. "They're ready for you."

Madeline stands up and walks with a guard. She reaches the visiting room of the prison and sits at a booth. Within a few moments, Brett walks out slowly and he immediately gets a grin when he sees Madeline.

"Well, well, well," he says into the phone receiver. "I was not expecting to see you here Patricia."

"Don't call me that," she spits back to him. She sees Vinny on a regular basis, but seeing his twin brother after so long is still a shock for her. "My name is Madeline."

Brett laughs a little. "Fine, Madeline. After all this time, all these years, why are you here? Please don't tell me it's just for a social visit either."

"You know why I'm here," Madeline whispers into the telephone. "Everything you and Dave put into motion is finally coming out. And guess what? I'm the one that's going to take the fall for it."

"I have no idea what you're talking about."

"Dave is dead and you're in jail. So I'm going to look like the bad guy in all of this," Madeline continues to tell him, ignoring his innocent plea.

"Madeline," Brett replies to her. "The jig is up. If you did something wrong, you will have to pay for your crimes. Just like Dave has. And just like I am. If you didn't do anything, then you have nothing to be worried about."

"We both know I did do something!" she cries back to him. "I was so stupid to allow myself to be blackmailed by you and Dave!"

Brett gets a grin on his face. "Like I said Maddie, the jig is up. Time to face the truth, when the truth comes out."

Madeline puts the phone down. She doesn't know why she decided to come see Brett, he's certainly not helping her cause. She looks back at him before she stands up and walks out of the visiting center.

Scene Five - St. Joseph's Church

"I had to get out of there," Trenyce tells Donovan as they walk in the garden of the church. After the wedding paused, she found one of her good friends and pulled him outside. "I feel like I was going claustrophobic in that place."

Donovan stops walking and turns Trenyce to face him. "What's going on T? It's not like you want to escape like this. Has something else happened with Andrew?"

Trenyce sighs and puts her hand over her for a moment. She recalls how before the wedding she agreed to do a paternity test to prove that Andrew is her son to Savannah. Of course, she only agreed to the paternity test because Savannah started to threaten her with going to get a court order to demand a paternity test.

"I'm going to do a paternity test on Andrew," she reveals slowly to him, still struggling to say the words out loud.

"Why on earth would you do that? I didn't think you were going to cave to Savannah's demands," he replies back to her, surprised to hear her decision.

"She left me no choice," Trenyce reveals to him. "She threatened to get a court order and then I would have no choice."

Donovan nods his head back to her. "We know the truth Trenyce. We know that Andrew is your son. So the test will be able to put Savannah at ease and we can all move on."

Trenyce fakes a smile back to him as tears escape her eyes. "What's wrong?"

Trenyce shakes her head. "I just keep thinking … what if somehow Andrew is Savannah's son? I can't lose him Donovan. I can't lose my baby."

Donovan pulls her into a hug. "We have nothing to worry about Trenyce. You are Andrew's mother. He knows that. Everyone knows that. This test will prove that once and for all."

"I hope you're right," she cries into his shoulder, scared of the thought of losing Andrew.


In the bridal room, Leah looks at Dominick with her arms folded as Felicia still rests in her wheelchair. Leah leans down and looks at her mother. The woman she believed died from cancer when she was a little girl is alive. She feels her eyes swell with water. Felicia looks exactly how Leah has always envisioned her to be. Only, she's pale and she's in a wheelchair. She isn't talking, just looking straight ahead.

"I can't believe she's alive," Leah finally says as she wipes some tears from her cheeks. "I thought she had died. We all did. How did Bob find her? Where has she been?"

Dominick shakes his head and grabs a glass of water. He quickly drinks it all down. He doesn't know what to do or say. After all these years, his secret is out. How will explain all of this?

"Can I get you anything?" Jeff asks Leah, who shakes her head no.

"I just need answers. I need to know where my mother has been all these years and we've all been left grieving for her," Leah replies to everyone. "Daddy, do you know anything about this?"

Dominick gulps and looks back at Leah. "It was me," he says slowly to Leah. "I faked her death and I've been keeping her away hidden away all these years."
