Scene One - Dominick's Townhouse
Cory pulls his coat tighter to his chest as he steps out of his car and begins to walk up to Dominick's front door. He can still see his breath in the cold air that is in the air in Twin Peaks. He knocks on the door and waits for Dominick to open.
"Cory, please come in," Dominick says as he opens the front door. "It's cold out there."
Cory quickly warms up inside Dominick's townhouse from the cold air. "Thanks for agreeing to see me this morning. I was grateful to get your telephone call last night."
Dominick welcomes Cory into the living room as he recalls how he called Cory the previous evening to tell him that Robin would be moving in with him. Once Dominick found out that Robin was planning to move out, he knew that he had to bring his daughter into his home. He wouldn't let her live in the Twin Peaks Executive Hotel.
"I thought you should know where your wife would be living," Dominick tells his son-in-law. "I still don't understand exactly why Robin moved out of the penthouse."
Cory sighs and looks back at Dominick. "I found her, again, holding a blanket and believing that it was our child," Cory reveals to Dominick. "I suggested that she seek therapy and she lost it on me."
Dominick nods his head back to Cory. "I see," he says slowly, growing more concerned as he knows that Robin has not dealt with the death of her child very well at all.
"Is she here right now?" Cory asks Dominick.
"She's sleeping. She was up pretty late last night," Dominick reveals. "The last thing I wanted was to wake her up for breakfast."
"She does need rest," Cory tells him. "You have to promise me Dominick that you'll watch Robin and see if I'm seeing things with her that aren't there. I'm just so worried about her."
Dominick comes up and puts his hand on Cory's back. "I will watch her like a hawk. If I see anything out of the ordinary, you have to know that I will suggest the same thing to her as you have been. We will get Robin through this, I promise you that. I won't lose my daughter over this."
Scene Two - The Robertson House; Jeff, Leah & Paige's Home
Felicia looks at her watch as she paces in her bedroom of her daughter's home. She has been feeling more and more peculiar about things lately. First, she knows that Bob is pressing her to carry out her share of their plan. What he doesn't realize, however, is that she has to stay in the house with Leah, Jeff and Paige in order to carry out their plan. Not that she even wants to carry out the plan anymore. At the time that she agreed to help him, she was desperate to get back to Twin Peaks to see her family again. Now that she is here however, she knows that Jeff wants her to leave the house because he is eager to get Leah to marry him; Felicia feels like he wants Leah all to himself. She feels like the walls are slowly closing in on her and she doesn't know what else to do about it.
"I hope that Leah stays on my side," she whispers to herself as she recalls how when Leah and Jeff asked her to move out, she accused Jeff of not liking her and that was their motivation. "If I can convince Leah that Jeff doesn't like me and that is what why he wants me out of the house, I may stand a chance. As for Bob Calimo," she continues to say to herself. "I need to figure out a way to stall him."
She looks at her watch again and realizes that it's time for her to take her medication. She walks over to her dresser and opens a small box that rests on it. She pulls out an orange pill box and opens the bottle. She puts one pill in her hand and quickly puts it in her mouth; she walks over to her night stand and picks up her glass of water, quickly swallowing the pill in her mouth.
"I will get this right," she says after she swallows. "I will make sure everything falls into place."
Bob sits in his office at the Roboto tower and gives a devilish grin as he looks over some files that are on his desk. The last thing on his mind, however, are the files in front of him. He shuts his eyes and recalls how he paid a man to secretly break into the Robertson house when no one was home and replace Felicia's medication with look-alike pills; basically he is giving her fake medication.
He knows that he has to get Felicia to carry out her part of the plan and based on how things were going, she wasn't going to do it being level headed. He realizes the risk that he is running taking her off her medication, but he believes that she will come around quickly and carry out their plan and then he'll be able to get back on the medication before any real harm is done.
"I will get my revenge on you Dominick," Bob whispers to himself. "And this is the perfect way to do it. You'll never suspect that I'm working with your wife. No one ever will."
He picks up his telephone and dials a number. He waits until finally Felicia picks up her telephone. "Felicia, it's Bob Calimo calling," he says into the receiver. "I haven't heard back from you on any updates. I thought I made it clear the last time we spoke how urgent this was."
Felicia looks over her shoulder to make sure that no one is in her bedroom. "You did make it clear," she quickly tells him back. "I thought I told you that you shouldn't call me while I'm here. Leah or Jeff could hear me on the phone."
Bob grins on his end of the telephone. "I wouldn't have to call you if I saw results from our plan. I'm beginning to think that I'm the only one involved in this."
"That's nonsense," Felicia snaps at him. "Just remember that what I'm doing, I'm doing to my family. This can't just happen overnight," she reminds him. "These things take time."
"I'm not a patient person," Bob interrupts her. "Either I see results soon or else "
Felicia slams the phone done in her bedroom not wanting to hear Bob's threats anymore. She runs her hand through her hair and sighs. "I will do this on my terms and don't you forget that," she whispers, glaring at her phone.
"Do what on your terms?" Jeff asks Felicia as he stands in the doorway of her bedroom, as she turns around and sees him standing there.
Scene Three - The Pampa Grill
Andy walks into the restaurant and sees Kim sitting in one of the booths near the back of the restaurant. He starts to walk towards his sister and recalls how he got a text message late last night from her asking him to meet her for breakfast. After she revealed that she was having an affair with Johnny, Andy couldn't not show up to see what was going on with Kim now.
"Hey," Andy says as he reaches the table. "I hope I'm not too late."
Kim grins at the sight of her brother. She needed to see a friendly face after she learned that she is pregnant. Moreover, she needs to know what she should do. She feels like her world is turning upside down and there's nothing she can do to stop it.
"Not at all," she replies to him. "I was here early. I couldn't sleep."
Andy arches his eyebrow as the waitress comes by and offers Andy some coffee. "Yes, please," he says to the waitress as she pours him a cup.
Kim holds her hand up and looks up at the waitress. "And I'll have more hot water for my herbal tea."
"Herbal tea?" Andy asks his sister. "Since when do you drink tea for breakfast? Usually you have a caffeine buzz for hours after breakfast."
Kim looks at her brother as she pulls her teabag out of her cup. Andy can sense something in her eye and he opens his mouth in shock. "No," he whispers. "Please tell me you're not "
Kim nods her head. "I am pregnant," she says with fear in her eyes.
Andy falls back into his chair in shock about his sister's revelation. "Do you know what this means?"
Kim stirs her tea before picking up her cup. She takes a deep breath. "Of course I do," she says, trying to stay calm even though she's scared to death. "It means Bob and I are going to be parents."
Andy leans forward shaking his head in disbelief. "Kim, you can't be serious about this " Andy says to her. "You were sleeping with Johnny! How do you know Bob is the father?"
"Would you keep your voice down?" Kim replies sternly to him. "No one can ever know about that. And for the record, I ended my affair a long time ago. I don't even see Johnny anymore."
Andy sighs. "Kim, you're playing with fire, you realize that, right?"
"I know what I'm doing," Kim replies to her brother. "Bob is the father of this baby. There is no other option."
Andy grabs her hand and looks at her. "There is another option, it's telling your husband the truth."
"The truth is my husband and I are going to have a baby," Kim replies to her brother, hoping that what she is saying is true.
Andy nods his head back to her. "I hope that's the truth Kim. My God, for your sake I hope it's true."
Scene Four - Roboto; Reese's Office
"So you think that's a wrap?" Johnny asks Reese as they sit across from each other in Reese's office. Reese looks at the young man across from him and gets a smirk on his face; he is thankful that he actually had business to talk to Johnny about today because the real reason that he asked Johnny to come by is to try to help Andy get some information from man who was sleeping with Kim.
"I think this was a great start," Reese replies to him, looking into his computer screen. "I will expect those numbers by Thursday and no later."
Johnny nods his head. "I can manage that."
"Good," Reese replies. "I suppose that is all for this meeting."
Johnny starts to collect his things. "Can I ask you something that's not business related?" Reese asks Johnny, growing the courage to carry out his plan for Reese. Johnny nods his head back to Reese. "We are about the same age, but I don't think I've seen you around town before. Are you new to Twin Peaks? Do you know a lot of people?"
Johnny smirks a little back to his boss. "Yea, I haven't been in town for very long. I went to Harvard to get my economics degree. I came to town in the summer hoping to work for Bob Calimo. I actually started as his pool boy."
Reese laughs a little. "Cleaning that big old pool, huh? That must have been fun."
"It was alright. His house is like nothing I've ever seen before," Johnny continues to tell Reese.
"I take it that you met Bob's wife then?"
"Kim? Yea, I saw her a few times," Johnny replies quickly. "Anyways, thanks for the meeting. I'll see you later."
Reese sighs as Johnny leaves his office. Reese knows that Johnny didn't give much away, but what it doesn't know is if Johnny was covering something up with Kim.
"I don't know if Andy wants me to continue or not," Reese talks to himself. "I don't know how much more I can get out of Johnny without being obvious."
Suddenly, Reese's phone alarm starts going off. He quickly grabs his cell phone to see what meeting he is forgetting about. On the screen of his phone reads "Doctor's Appointment". Reese looks at his watch and realizes he has an hour to get to the doctor. Once and for all, he will find out why he has still been feeling so down and under the weather.
Scene Five - The Sugarbowl
"How are things with you and Robbie now that you're living together?" Donovan asks his sister as they sit together in the coffee house, catching up as they haven't seen each other for a few days. Donovan has always enjoyed catching up with his sister, especially because they missed so much time together when he was living in Europe and she was here in the US.
Victoria drinks some of her latte before she replies to her brother. She knows that things between her and Robbie have been going extremely well. "They are great," she says back to him. "I'm sorry we haven't had you over yet, we've just been busy."
Donovan shakes it off. "You don't have to apologize to me," he replies. "But I do have a great housewarming present for you!"
Victoria's eyes light up. "I can't wait to see what it is," she smiles to her brother. "Enough about me though, what is going on with you? When I will I get to meet the man in your life?"
Donovan blushes a little and lets out an awkward laugh. "You know very well that I'm single," he quickly tells her, even though his mind goes back to the other day when Craig asked him out on a date. It definitely took Donovan by surprise and he was flattered, but he knows that he could never be with Craig; they have such a weird history, with Craig having dated Andy, whom Donovan had a crush on. Moreover, Donovan has been thinking about his past a lot lately; that special guy that he was in love with in Europe. He looks at his sister and knows that he isn't ready to move on yet, even though it's been years.
"But why are you single? You're such a great guy bro," Victoria tells him. "You should have a lineup of potential suitors."
"That's nice of you to say," Donovan blushes again. "I guess sometimes the past is hard to let go of. That's all I will say on this topic."
Victoria arches her eyebrow and nods back to him. "That's fair," she says. "And I get what you mean. The past it is hard to let go of."
Donovan looks back at her with curiosity on his face. "Was that comment about Robbie?"
Victoria shrugs her shoulders a little. "I know that he loves me. I guess I just can't help but feel insecure sometimes."
"Insecure? About what Vic?"
Victoria sighs. "The past, what else?"
"You mean ?" Donovan begins to ask her.
"Leah," Victoria finishes his sentence. "She'll always be in Robbie's life. And no matter what I do, there will always be a bond between Robbie and Leah."
Scene Six - Twin Peaks Police Station; Robbie's Office
Robbie sits at his desk looking over some of his case files that he is currently working on. He takes a drink of the coffee on his desk before he opens the next file and starts typing into his computer. As he types, he can't help but get a slight grin on his face as he is happy with where he is in his life; moving in with Victoria has been a really good move for their relationship. They have taken the next step without it seemingly like it was rushed or forced.
"You look far too happy to be at work," a voice calls from his doorway causing Robbie to look up and see Leah at his office. "I hope this isn't a bad time."
Robbie shakes his head. "It's fine," he replies to her. "What's up?" He asks his ex-wife as he waits her response. They haven't exactly been seeing eye to eye since the truth about Paige's paternity was revealed. Despite that, he can't stay mad at Leah forever, not after everything they shared together.
Leah closes his office door and moves to his desk, taking a seat in the chair across from him. "I know that the last year or so hasn't exactly been good for us. We used to be so close Robbie," she begins to tell him as she feels her lower lip start to tremble. "I know that we can never go back. I respect that you've moved on with Victoria and I am with Jeff."
"I'm not sure what you're getting at Leah," Robbie admits to her, confused by what she is saying.
"I'm saying, I'd like to be friends. I don't want this bitterness in my life anymore. I'm here offering you an olive branch," she admits to him.
Robbie sighs and leans back in his chair. He shuts his eyes for a moment and then looks back at his ex-wife. "I'd like that too Leah. I know I've said some harsh things, but they were all out of the hurt about Paige."
"I know," Leah replies to him. "I have something for you. It's nothing huge, it's just my way of showing you that I'm serious about mending our relationship," she says as she opens her purse and pulls out an envelope. "Here, this is for you."
Robbie leans forward and grabs the envelope. Inside is a picture of Paige at Christmas time. "It was taken this year on Christmas Day. You were her father for the first years of her life, I still want you to be a part of her life. And I know she'd like that too."
Robbie feels his eyes swell with water as he looks at the picture. "She's beautiful," he finally says back to Leah. "Thank you for this. I really do appreciate it."
Leah nods back to him. "Good, I'm glad. I'm happy that we are able to move forward now."
"Me too Leah," Robbie replies back to her. "Me too."
Scene Seven - The Towers, The Penthouse; Cory & Robin's Home
Cory steps off the elevator and slowly walks to the front door of his penthouse. He can't get it out of his head being at Dominick's earlier in the day; Robin is staying there because she doesn't realize that she needs help getting over the death of their daughter. While Cory knows that Dominick will watch over her, he still wishes that Robin was with him. He should be the one to help his wife, not her father. He sighs wondering what to do next.
He unlocks his door and enters the penthouse. He looks around thinking something is off, but he shakes his head and closes the door. He walks over to the bar and pours himself a scotch. Normally he doesn't drink something so strong but with everything going on, he feels like he needs it.
The first gulp goes down far too smoothly and he finds himself finishing the glass. He's about to pour another when he hears a noise coming from the second floor of the penthouse.
"Hello?" he calls out, thinking maybe someone is in his house. He slowly walks over to the stair case and heads up.
At the top of the stairs, he looks around but doesn't see anything out of place. But then he hears the noise again. This time, he is sure that it's coming from the guest room, the room that was going to be the nursery for his and Robin's child. He moves slowly to the closed door and opens it.
Cory opens the door and sees a woman making a bed. "What the hell " Cory begins to say to the woman.
She turns around. "Oh Cory! You're home," Rebecca DeWitt smiles at her brother in law.
"Rebecca?" Cory asks shocked.
"In the flesh, I'm back and I'm here to stay," she says pursing her lips together.
Scene Eight - The Robertson House; Jeff, Leah & Paige's Home
"Felicia?" Jeff asks her again as he moves closer to her. "What are you going to do on your terms?"
Felicia runs her hands through her hair as she feels herself start to tremble. She can't tell Jeff the truth; no one can know that she is working with Bob Calimo on a project; no one can know that Bob is the one that helped her get out of the mental institution. But how can she possibly get out of this?
"Are you eavesdropping on me now?" Felicia asks him, her eyes growing wider as she finishes running her hand through her hair. "I can't believe you! First you poison my daughter's mind against me and now you're listening to me! Who do you think you are!?"
Jeff shakes his head. "That's not what this is," he tells her. "I was just walking by and I overheard you talking. Are you okay? Can I get you anything?" he asks her, clearly seeing that she is about to become unhinged.
"Yes, you can you can get out of my bedroom and you can leave me alone!" Felicia yells back at him. "Go on! Get out of here!"
Jeff puts his hand up and walks to the door quickly. "If you need "
"I don't need a damn thing from you!" Felicia yells, cutting him off.
Jeff closes the door and takes a deep breath outside her door. "What the hell was that all about?" he asks himself, concerned about Felicia's well being now.
