Scene One - The Pampa Grill

The restaurant has been closed to the general public for the evening as Shane and Natasha have rented it out as the space for their wedding reception. The couple stand at the head table, he is holding a glass of champagne and she is holding a glass of sparking cider and they look out at their friends and family that are having a great time celebrating their union. The red and silver balloons help create the theme colors of the wedding that the couple decided on.

"Are you happy?" Shane asks his wife as he turns to face her.

Natasha looks at her husband and can't erase the smile from her face. "I've never been happier in my entire life," she replies to him. "We are finally husband and wife, for real this time. And, we have this life growing inside of me … we are going to be parents. We are on this incredible journey together."

Shane smiles and leans in and kisses her on the lips. "I love you so much Natasha. No one or nothing will ever come between us again."

Natasha looks into his eyes and nods her head. "Again, I want to apologize to you for what I almost did with the baby…"

"Ssshh," he replies to her quickly. "You never have to mention that again. We are back on the same page. That's all that matters," he tells her. "Now, let's go enjoy our wedding reception."

"That's a great idea," she says back to him, looking at friends and family she wants to say hello too.


"Would you like another glass of sparkling cider?" Bob asks Kim as they sit together at a near by table. He looks at his wife for a moment, whom appears to be enjoying herself at the wedding. Bob is looking to see if Kim is watching another man in the room; he is desperate to find out who she is sleeping with behind his back; the man who got her pregnant as he knows he had a vasectomy and couldn't be the father of her baby.

"I'd love one," she replies to him. "After you get one, would you like to dance?" she asks him.

Bob fumes inside knowing he doesn't want to dance with the woman that is betraying him but he has to keep up playing the game until he has the proof. "I'd love too," he fakes a smile over to her. "As long as you don't overdo it, I don't want you to tire out. Remember, you have the baby to think about."

"I'll be fine," Kim says to him with a smile. "I'm just so happy that you're pleased that we are having a child together."

They move onto the dance floor and begin to dance together. Bob looks at the woman that he married and quickly wonders how they got to this point of their lives. "Of course, I am happy Kimberly," he lies to her. "What kind of man would I be if I wasn't happy about creating a new life with my wife?"

Kim smiles back to him. "When Natasha and Shane return from their honeymoon we should sit down with her and Robbie and tell them they will have a new half sibling."

Bob realizes that he now has a time frame to learn the truth by. "That sounds like a wonderful idea," he grins at her, the wheels in his head already turning.


"Are you happy?" Cory asks Natasha as they stand next to each other.

Natasha nods back to her ex-husband. "I can't remember being this happy," she admits to him.

"Then I'm happy for you Nat," he tells her. "After everything you and I went through, you know I've only ever wanted the best for you."

Natasha feels her eyes swell with water. "I know Cory and I feel the same about you. I'm just so sorry to hear about Robin."

Cory shakes his head quickly. "Let's not talk about Robin right now, this is about you and Shane. There's plenty of time to talk about Robin after your day."

Natasha moves in and hugs her friend. "Just know that I'm always here for you if you need me," she tells him as he hugs her back.

"Thanks Nat, now go and enjoy your evening," he winks at her as they exit their embrace.

He watches Natasha move to another one of her guests and starts chatting with them. Cory sighs as he wonders how Robin is doing; laying in her bed at Dominick's townhouse slowly dying as the infection takes over her body.

"I couldn't help but overhear you and Natasha talk," Eva admits to Cory as she comes up to him. "What is going on with Robin?"

Cory looks at Eva and wonders if maybe she could be assistance to him as she is Chief of Staff. "You don't know?"

Eva shakes her head. "Why would I know?"

"I just thought you and Dominick are close so you would know," Cory admits to her. "Anyways, Robin is dying," he slowly says, barely even to say the words. "Apparently she has this infection and it's taking over her body."

"What?" she gasps. "My goodness, Dominick didn't mention anything to me. Let me go talk to him. Maybe there's something I can do."

"I'd really appreciate that Eva," Cory replies to her, desperate for something to help save his wife.


"Having a good time?" Meggan asks Vinny as she walks up to her ex-husband, who is standing at the bar getting another glass of champagne.

Vinny turns and sees her with a glass of sparkling cider. "I am," he says to her with a smile. "It's nice to see a couple get to this point of their love, you know?"

Meggan nods back to her. "We had this once," she says slowly to him. "Well, I thought we did. I didn't know it was really Dave pretending to be you."

"If we are going to start talking about my brothers, I'm going to need another glass of this champagne," he laughs with her.

She chuckles with him. "You're lucky though Vinny, you've found it again with Daisy."

"I am a very lucky man," he replies to her, agreeing with her statement.

Meggan turns and sees Chris and Daisy chatting nearby. "Daisy found it once with Chris too," she says. "Don't you find it interesting that he returned to town just in time for the custody hearing."

Vinny arches his eye brow. "I guess so," he admits to her. "I'm sure he found out by reading the news or something."

"Daisy didn't tell you?" Meggan asks him, surprised, knowing that she has the chance to cause some problems between Vinny and Daisy.

"Tell me what?"

"It was Daisy," Meggan reveals to him. "Daisy is the one that called Chris and asked him to come back to Twin Peaks."


"Why didn't you tell me about this?" Eva asks Dominick as they stand off to the side so they could have a private conversation. "Your daughter is dying and you didn't tell me?"

Dominick sighs and looks at his lover. "It's not that I didn't want to tell you," he reveals to her. "I've just been juggling a million different things right now. Robin's illness is just one of them," he admits to her. "But, yes, it seems like the worse is upon us."

"How did this happen?" Eva asks him, trying to figure out how this all happened.

Dominick turns his back to her for a moment. "I guess she had been weak because of her fragile mental state," he begins to explain to her. "And when the infection set in, it spread quickly. I've had Will reviewing her closely."

"She should be in the hospital," Eva tells him, thinking she could possibly help. "Maybe there's more that can be done."

Dominick shakes his head and looks at her. "Don't you understand? I don't want to put her through that. I don't want to put Cory through that. That poor man has been put through the ringer already," Dominick informs her. "I've been where he was when Felicia was first going through her mental illness. It's the hardest thing to watch in the world. Robin … soon, she will be in a better place and we can all start to heal."

Eva is shocked by the words that Dominick is saying to her and wonders what is really going on here. She can't place it but she suspects that there's more to this story, much more to the story. She just has to put it all together before it is too late.


"Thank you again for everything you did to help with the wedding," Natasha tells Adam as they dance together on the dance floor.

Adam looks back at his friend. "I wouldn't want to do it any other way Natasha," he says to her. "You, Shane, Helen and I … we've all been put through some crazy times the past couple of years."

Natasha laughs. "Thanks to Cassie," she says to him with half a grin. "Look, I know you and Helen are going through some big personal changes with her family but you have to stay by her side," Natasha tells him. "Shane and I recently went through some personal changes and the fact that he stood by me is what helped me get through it."

Adam pulls her closer to give her a hug. "Thank you," he tells her. "I'm trying to be as supportive as I can be," he reveals to her. "But in truth, I'm scared about what Helen will uncover with her family. I just hope it's nothing too bad."

"Regardless, you stay by her and everything will be fine. Look at Shane and I."


"Oh Madeline," Eva says to the PI as she approaches her. "I got your message about wanting to see me. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Can you talk now?"

Madeline looks up from her phone and nods to Eva. She knows that she has some big news about what she uncovered from the hospital video security footage. Madeline had been investigating the possible cause of why elderly patients had been passing away on a more frequent basis for Eva. After reviewing the footage, she knows what has been going on at the hospital.

"I think we should go somewhere a little quieter," Madeline reveals to Eva, who arches her eyebrow. "I know exactly what's going on and it's not good. Not good at all."

Eva gulps as she moves away with Madeline and tries to brace herself for the worse possible news.


"You never got to tell me at the wedding what your plan is," Trenyce tells Chris as they sit together at a table and enjoy some champagne. Trenyce recalls how right before the wedding ceremony, Chris cryptically revealed that he had a new plan on how they could get Andrew back and away from Savannah for good. Trenyce isn't sure she wants to go through with another plan; she doesn't know if she can bare losing Andrew yet again.

Chris finishes swallowing his mouthful of champagne before he moves over a seat so he is directly next to Trenyce. He looks around to make sure no one is close enough to hear what is about to say. "You can't tell this to anyone," he says to her, knowing what he is planning could be a dangerous proposition.

Trenyce nods her head. "Of course not," she replies to him. "But I want to know what you think will help us get Andrew back."

Chris smiles. "I'm going to get Savannah to fall in love with me," he whispers to her.

Trenyce's eyes open wider. "You're what?" she asks shocked by his admission.

"Think about it Trenyce," Chris tells her. "If I get Savannah to fall for me, I could marry her … and then I would have access to Andrew. I could even get her to give me more rights to him. Then, I could divorce her and try to sue for custody again. I could paint her as the unfit mother and I could get Andrew back … for good this time."

Trenyce leans back into her chair and picks up her glass of champagne and takes a drink of it. "I don't think this will work," she tells him. "And I don't want you to ruin our chances of at least having Andrew in our life."

"Trust me Trenyce," he tells her. "This will work. I know it can."


"There you are," Vinny says to Daisy as he comes up to her holding a new glass of champagne for his finance. "I've been looking for you for some time now."

Daisy turns around and faces her finance as he passes her the champagne. "I've been mingling with people."

"I saw you with Chris earlier," Vinny admits to her, as he recalls seeing her with her ex while he was with Meggan.

"Yea, we were just talking about his future plans."

"And what did he say? Is he staying in Twin Peaks?"

Daisy nods her head. "He seems to want to try to be in Andrew's life in some capacity."

"It's still interesting that he knew about the trial and just showed up," Vinny says cryptically too her.

Daisy quickly takes a sip of her champagne to avoid answering him. "My God, it was you wasn't it?" he asks her. "You called Chris back into town?"

Daisy finishes swallowing her champagne. "I did," she finally admits. "I knew that the Judge would be asking about him so I called him and filled him in. He should have been here way earlier anyways."

"I can't believe you!" Vinny says trying not to raise his voice. "You just finished being mad at me for asking my ex-wife to live with us but you can call your ex-husband back into town and pretend that it was just an odd twist of fate."

"I don't know why you're so upset about this," Daisy says back to him quickly.

"I just find it annoying that you were upset with me when you did the exact same thing with your ex," Vinny tells her.

Daisy sighs and is about to say something else but Vinny turns around. "I'm going to get another glass of champagne."

Daisy doesn't try to stop Vinny as she wonders who revealed that she is the one that called Chris back to Twin Peaks. It's not like she told anyone what she was doing and Chris certainly wouldn't have said anything. Something to Daisy isn't smelling right, and she knows she has to get to the truth.


Eva looks around trying to find Dominick. After hearing what Madeline had to tell her, she has to find Dominick to ask what she should do next. She has to do something and she has to do it quickly.

"Eva? Are you okay?" Natasha asks her mother as she comes up to her. "You look concerned about something."

"Oh Natasha," Eva forces herself to smile as she grabs her daughter's hands. "I'm fine. I was just looking for Dominick. Have you seen him?"

"I believe he was talking to Will over by the bar," Natasha tells her. "Are you sure that everything is alright?"

"Absolutely," Eva smiles back to her. "Please don't leave before you come see me but if you'll excuse me, I have to get over to see Dominick."

Natasha watches her mother walk away quickly and she arches her eyebrow. "I wonder what that was all about."

Meanwhile, Eva moves closer to the bar and she sees Will and Dominick talking. She quickly approaches them but stops when she hears them talking.

"Are you sure you want to do this?" Will asks Dominick, quietly.

Dominick takes a sip of his champagne. "Yes, the time is now. We've come too far to stop now. We shouldn't delay this any further."

Eva arches her eyebrow as she listens to their conversation. "What are you up too Dominick," she whispers to herself as she suddenly her eyes grow wider in shock. "My goodness, it can't be, can it?"

She turns around to reveal herself to Dominick and Will but instead she sees Dominick walking away from the bar and she sees Will grabbing his coat and heading towards the door.


"Fancy seeing you here," a voice says to Victoria, as she collects two glasses of champagne from the bar. Victoria turns around and sees Meggan standing behind her.

"I had heard you were back in town," Victoria says to her old rival. "I'm assuming you're sober still?"

Meggan holds up her glass of sparkling cider to Victoria. "I haven't had alcohol since before I left Twin Peaks."

"Good, cause I'd hate for you to hurt someone else with your obsession with alcohol," Victoria spits back at her.

Meggan laughs. "Look, Vicki, I'm back in town and I am a changed person. I want to make amends with the people I hurt. That includes you."

Victoria arches her eyebrow. "You want to make amends? If you want to do that Meg, stay the hell away from me and out of my life."

Before Meggan can reply, Victoria grabs her glasses of champagne and walks away from her. Meggan takes a sip of her cider, thinking that her first visit with Victoria went better than she had hoped for. "I didn't get slapped, which is nice."


"Are you ready to go?" Helen asks Adam as they look around the restaurant and notice that some guests are starting to leave.

Adam picks up his champagne glass and finishes the rest of it. He puts it down and looks over at his wife. "I suppose I could go, yea. Are you ready to go?"

Helen nods her head back to him. "I am, I think," she tells him. "The wedding and reception were lovely but I am ready for what's next."

"And by that you mean, you're ready to go and see your parents?" Adam asks her as he starts to collect their belongings.

Helen nods her head back to him. "I'm scared but like you said, if I don't go, I will be left with all of these unanswered questions and I can't have that. I want to go and see my parents."

Adam smiles at her, proud that she is taking this step. He does have his fears about what she will uncover, but he tries to remember what Natasha told him about being supportive of her. "Okay, let's go home so you can start to pack and head off to meet your parents."


"Thank you for everything today," Natasha tells Shane as he holds her in his arms and they dance together. "Being your wife is everything I could have asked for and more."

Shane smiles back to her and leans in and gives her a kiss on her lips. "And being your husband is the best thing I've done with my life so far."

"Oh Shane," she says as she rests her head on his shoulder. "Today was the most beautiful day of our lives."

"And soon, we'll be having another beautiful day, the day our child will be born."

Natasha looks up at him and nods her head. "I can't wait to be the mother of your child."


"Cory," Eva says rushing up to Cory, who has his jacket in his hand as he is getting ready to leave. "I'm so glad I caught you before you left."

"Eva?" Cory asks, surprised to see her again in the evening. "What on earth is it? You seem rattled."

"I am," she admits to him. "I think I know what's going on with Robin."

Cory shakes his head. "I don't understand what you're implying."

"There's no time to explain," she quickly interrupts him. "You have to get over to Dominick's townhouse immediately! Come on, I'll drive!"

Cory follows her lead as his head starts to question about what Eva has uncovered about Robin.
