Previously on One Day at
Scene One - Roboto
Kim looks at Dominick and Tyler in shock as they just revealed that Johnny, the man who Kim had a torrid affair with, is really Dominick's long lost son with Felicia, Tyler. She can't believe that Johnny, or Tyler, has been lying to her for months about his real identity. Not only that, but she now realizes that she has slept with her husband's worst enemy's son; the thought of Bob learning about their affair now scares her to her very core. There is no way Bob would forgive that betrayal.
"I I don't understand this," Kim finally blurts out, her eyes move to Tyler's as she is desperate for answers. "How is any of this possible?"
Bob looks away and goes to pour himself another brandy as he tries to deal with the realization that Dominick and Tyler truly did pull one over his eyes. He never suspected a thing and that makes his blood boil. For months, Tyler has seen private, confidential and important documents for Roboto.
"Kim," Dominick replies to her. "This really doesn't affect you. This is between Bob, Tyler and myself."
"How can you say that?" Kim yells back at Dominick. "This man has betrayed us all by lying about who he is really is! Don't you dare say I'm not involved Dominick."
Bob comes over to his wife. "It's okay Kimberly, I will handle this," he tells her, trying to calm her down. He turns his attention to Dominick and Tyler. "I should have known you'd pull something like this Dominick. This is a nasty trick that only you would do. It is despicable."
"After everything you've done to me and my family, this is minor Bob," Dominick replies to him. "You killed my daughter!"
"My sister," Tyler cuts off his father, finally saying something. "You were the one that was responsible for killing Leah. How could you be so cruel to her and to my mother?"
"All these months have been one big lie? Every report you've worked on? Every file you've assisted me on what was all of that?" Bob asks Tyler, ignoring the young man's own questions to Bob.
"I did what I had to do. The new line that Roboto is about to launch? Today, Robertson Enterprises is about to launch a very similar product, only we beat Roboto to the punch," Tyler smirks over at Bob, who suddenly realizes that his fears of Tyler was spying for Dominick and giving him insider information is true.
"You're fired!" Bob yells at him. "And let me tell you something, that is illegal. I will have you arrested for corporate espionage."
"Call the police Bob," Dominick glares at him as Tyler tries to stop himself from laughing at the fact that Bob fired him. "I dare you to the call the police right now. Because you know what? I'd love to tell them your role in Leah's death. I'm sure they'd be thrilled to know how you were drugging Felicia so she'd lose her mind again."
"Don't threaten me Dominick," Bob warns him.
"Stop it!" Kim finally yells out, tired of the madness. "This has to stop! And it has to stop now!"
Scene Two - The Wilkins Estate; Madeline's Home
Madeline walks slowly to the front door when she hears the doorbell ring. She knows what the day is bringing to her; Reese's last living will has been read and Natasha is coming over to tell her and Andy what his last wishes are. Madeline already feels her eyes begin to swell with water as she is still in shock that Reese is dead. It doesn't seem real that her twin brother is gone; she doesn't want to believe it either. She's not ready to let go of her brother, especially living in the house alone now. She already lost Olivia and Preston; now that her brother is gone, being in the family house is harder than ever before. Which is why she has made a decision; she has to do what is best for her right now.
She clears her throat and opens the door. "Natasha, thank you for coming," she welcomes the legal eagle into the foyer.
Natasha nods her head back to Madeline. "I'm so sorry about your loss," she expresses to Madeline. "I can't imagine what you and Andy are going through. If there's anything I can do, please let me know."
"That's very kind of you," Madeline replies to her, forcing herself to have a smile on her face. "Please come in. I have the kettle on for some tea, I'll meet you in the living room."
Natasha moves into the living room where she sees Andy looking out the window. "Andy."
Andy turns around and sees Natasha. "Natasha, thank you for coming."
"I wish it was for something other than this," Natasha replies to him as she comes up and gives him a hug. "Has Kim been by?"
"She won't leave," Andy confesses to her. "But given that she's pregnant, I made her go home and get some rest."
"Here's the tea," Madeline says as she enters the living room with a tray in her hand. "Can I get you a cup Natasha?"
"No, I'm fine, thank you," Natasha tells her. "I've reviewed Reese's will and there's really no surprises here. He his half of the house to you Madeline and all of his liquid assets to Andy. Based on the value of the house, it's almost an even divide."
Andy looks at Madeline and manages to give her half a smile. "That's Reese for you, always looking out for us."
Madeline feels her eyes swell with water. "And I'm left with this house? I guess he didn't think about all the memories that were attached to this place. First losing my parents was hard, and being in this place without them. The only way I survived is because Reese was with me. Now, he's gone too. And I'm left with this place and all these memories."
Andy moves closer to her
and hugs her. "He loved you Madeline."
"I'll see myself out," Natasha tells them. "If you either of you have any questions, let me know."
Andy nor Madeline leave their embrace to see Natasha leave. Once they hear the front door close, Madeline leaves the hug and wipes her eyes dry. "Sorry about that."
"Never apologize to me," Andy tells her. "We are dealing with this together. Losing Reese has been hard on both of us."
"I know," she whispers back to him. "And that's why I've made a decision that I don't think you're going to like."
"What kind of decision?" Andy asks as he arches his eyebrow.
"I'm leaving Twin Peaks," she reveals as they make eye contact. "And I'm leaving today."
Scene Three - The Park
"Beautiful day for an ice coffee, don't you think?" Jeff asks Paige as they walk through the park together. He thought that since his daughter was home it would be nice to get out of the house and enjoy some sun together. They haven't had much alone time together since she has been home as they have both been struggling with Leah's death.
Paige removes the straw from her mouth and looks over at her father. "I had forgotten how hot it can be in the summer sun in Twin Peaks," she admits to him having spent the last few years in Europe at school.
"It's been so long since we've enjoyed a day like this together," Jeff tells her. "The last time..."
"Was that summer Mom finally allowed me to go into the pool in the back yard. Remember that? You refused to let me go in without my arm floaties, despite me claiming I knew how to swim," she smiles to him as she thinks back to the summer when Leah was still alive.
He feels his heart break a little knowing that his family will never be able to have days like the one Paige is talking about ever again. "I remember like it was yesterday," he tells her as he sighs, also recalling the day.
"I'm sorry, I shouldn't have brought up Mom."
"No, it's okay. We should talk about her. It's a part of the healing process," he tells her as he stops and looks at her. "We can't pretend that she wasn't a huge part of our life. It's nice to reflect."
Paige moves a piece of her hair behind her ear and looks over at him. "It is nice to think about her. I guess it still seems so weird that she's not with us anymore."
"I know, it will take time Paige," he tells her. "There's actually something I wanted to discuss with you. It's about Meggan Richardson."
"What about her?"
"I want you to stay away from her Paige. I don't want you going anywhere near that woman," he tells his daughter, as he reflects on how Meggan tried to comfort Paige recently. Jeff has told Meggan to stay away from Paige as well; the last thing he wants is for his daughter to be around the woman that killed Noah.
"If this is about the other day at the Sugarbowl " she begins to defend herself.
"Please promise me Paige that you will stay away from her."
She nods back to him. "Okay, okay, I promise," she smiles to him, hoping that she and Jeff can try to move forward with their lives.
Scene Four - The Sugarbowl
Daisy walks into the coffee house and quickly enters the line craving another coffee. Her morning has been busy at city hall, although her mind has been busy thinking about what she saw a few days earlier at her birthday pool party. She still wonders if having a party so soon after Reese passed away was the best decision they could have made but she understands why Vinny wanted to have the party. Reese would have wanted everyone to keep living their lives and moving forwad.
What she really has been thinking about, however, is the conversation that she interrupted between Chris and Trenyce. She didn't know what exactly she overheard, but she could have sworn that she heard them mention a plan. She isn't sure what kind of plan they could be talking about but she doesn't like the idea of Trenyce getting mixed up in anything fishy and a plan definitely sounds like something is going on.
She moves to the coffee bar to put her cream and sugar in her coffee. "What are you up too Trenyce?" she asks herself. She turns around and is about to leave when she sees Chris and Trenyce walk into the Sugarbowl together.
She quickly moves up to them and puts her hand on her hip. "This is interesting," Daisy tells them, noting that they are together again. "I was just thinking about the two of you."
Chris arches his eyebrow. "I'll go get your latte," he tells Trenyce and moves past Daisy into the lineup.
Trenyce looks over at her Aunt and gulps. She hates when Daisy has that tone of disappointment in her voice. "What's going on?"
"That's exactly what I'd like to know," Daisy replies to her niece, determined to get to the bottom of this "plan".
"I don't understand," Trenyce says back to her. "What would you like to know?"
Daisy takes a sip of her coffee before she moves Trenyce over to a table. "I heard you and Chris talking at my birthday party. I want to know what you're up too and I want to know now."
Trenyce gulps and looks up at Chris, who approaches the table with Trenyce' latte and his coffee. "I couldn't help but over hear," he says as he sits down at the table with the women. "We aren't up to anything," Chris continues to tell Daisy. "Why would you think otherwise?"
"I heard you say there was a plan," Daisy informs them both of what she overheard. "What was that all about?"
"It was nothing," Chris tells her, as he looks over at Trenyce and notices she is looking flushed. "Vinny had told me what time he wanted to cut your birthday cake; I was simply relaying the information to Trenyce."
Daisy arches her eyebrow and looks over at Trenyce. "I hope this is true Trenyce," Daisy tells her. "I don't want you to get caught up in a scheme of any kind."
"I'm not Daisy," Trenyce finally tells her, hating that she has to lie to her Aunt. "Promise you, everything is just fine."
"So, you still haven't been able to get through to Robin?" Rebecca asks Cory as they sit across from each other in one of the back booths of the coffeehouse. She recalls how Cory is getting frustrated because Robin has suddenly stopped accepting his telephone calls while she is getting treatment at the mental facility. She can see how upset Cory has become by this; he wants Robin to get better but he also wanted to keep the lines of communication open with his wife while she is away.
Cory takes a sip of his coffee before he looks up at his sister in law. "Nope," he quickly replies to her, not sure he understands why Robin has seemingly cut him off. "I thought she knew that going to the mental hospital would be for the best for her but maybe she resents me because I sent her there? It's the only logical explanation I can think of."
Rebecca reaches over and grabs his hand. "I'm so sorry that this is happening. I wish I knew what my sister was thinking."
Cory looks at her hand touching his and shuts his eyes for a moment as he thinks back to seeing Rebecca in her underwear then a bikini a few days later. He hates that he is feeling attracted to Rebecca, but he can't help it at the same time. He opens his eyes and smiles at her. "Thanks, I'm sure it's nothing. Maybe she's actually making progress with dealing with our baby's death and she just wants space?"
"I have an idea," she replies to him. "But I don't have too if you don't think it's a good idea."
Cory arches his eyebrow before he takes another sip of his coffee. "What is this idea you have?"
"What if I go and visit Robin?" she suggests to him. "I can see how she is doing and talk to her doctors and find out everything that is going on. When I get back, I can give you the full report."
"You would do that?"
"Of course I would," she smiles back to him. "Robin is my sister, I'm just as worried as you are. The entire reason I came back to Twin Peaks was to be there for her. Let me go and see if I can get to the bottom of this. What do you say?"
Cory nods back to her. "I think it's a great idea. Thank you Rebeca, thank you for having Robin's best interests at heart."
She smiles back at him and then takes a drink of her coffee. "Of course Cory."
Scene Five - The Robertson House; Jeff, Paige & Felicia's Home
"I'm glad that you asked me to come over today," Robbie tells Paige as he enters the living room of the house he lived in with Paige and Leah for so many years. In fact, knocking on the front door seemed odd to Robbie. In his mind, this house is still his. But like so many things that have gone on lately, he is adjusting to the new reality.
Paige looks at the man that she believed was her father for so many years and smiles at him. After she and Jeff had their walk together earlier, she rushed home to shower and change because she wanted to see Robbie. She knows that Jeff is her father but she still thinks of Robbie as one of her Dad's as well. In her mind, she has two fathers and she always will.
"Is your is Jeff here?" Robbie asks her, not wanting to call Jeff her father. It is still a sore spot for him.
"No," Paige quickly replies to him. "He went to the office. He is trying to move on but you know, it's been difficult for him."
"Of course," Robbie says back to her. "Leah being gone has been hard on everyone. How are you holding up? I'm worried about you."
She smiles and moves up to him hugging him. "I'm tired of pretending that everything is okay when it's not. Nothing is okay right now."
Robbie holds her and feels her start to cry into his chest. "I'm here for you Paige. I always will be. Together, we can get through this."
"I know," she says as they exit their embrace. "This entire mess just feels surreal, you know?"
"I do know," he replies to her.
"I thought I heard voices down here," Felicia announces as she walks into the living room, seeing Robbie and Paige. "Robbie, I've been meaning to come and see you."
Robbie looks at Paige before he looks over at Felicia. He hasn't seen much of her since he saved her from the farm house in Lake Tahoe; the only time is at Leah's memorial service where she attacked Bob for his role in Leah's death. "How are you feeling Felicia?" he asks her, hoping that she is more stable now.
She pours herself a cup of tea and then looks over at him. "Much better now that I'm on my proper medication," she reveals to him and Paige, knowing, though, that Paige doesn't know the entire story. "I don't want to get into all of that, however. I wanted to thank you for everything you did to help me and try to save Leah."
"I don't want to hear any of this," Paige interrupts them, with tears in her eyes. "I can't hear how my Mom died. Please, I can't take it. Not now, maybe not ever."
"Oh darling," Felicia says putting her tea down. "I'm so sorry, of course you don't. How insensitive of me."
"I don't think anyone of us want to upset you, Paige," Robbie tells the young woman. "We are just trying to understand everything that happened."
"Mom is dead, what else is there to understand?"
"I think this is all Jeff's doing," Felicia blurts out. "He knew that I wasn't fond of him and he kept trying to push me out of the house. Had they only noticed I wasn't myself instead of planning that damned wedding! If it wasn't for Jeff, Leah would still be alive today."
Paige's eyes open wider in shock. "I can't deal with this!" she says rushing out of the room.
"Paige!" Robbie calls out but she doesn't stop. He looks back at Felicia, who sighs.
"I didn't mean to upset her," Felicia claims quickly, hoping that Paige will understand.
"But you did Felicia," Robbie replies to her. "But it's okay, it's something she probably needed to hear anyways."
"Oh," Felicia says surprised. "You agree with me?"
Robbie locks his eyes on her. "That Jeff is responsible? Absolutely."
Scene Six - The Wilkins Estate; Madeline's Home
"Are you sure about this?" Andy asks Madeline, as he tries to digest the fact that Madeline just revealed that she is leaving town because she can't handle staying after Reese's death.
Madeline looks at him with tears in her eyes. "How can I stay here Andy? First my parents, now Reese there's nothing left for me here."
Andy moves closer to her. "I need you to help me through this time. I can't go through this loss alone."
"I'm a phone call away Andy," she tells him as she moves her hair behind her ear. "I've already made my decision."
"What about MW Investigations?" he asks her, hoping that something will convince her to stay in town.
"Meggan Richardson has agreed to buy the company from me," she reveals to him. "I have no doubt that I will be able to land on my feet."
"Where will you go?"
"My parents bought a condo in LA years ago and have kept it as an income property. I'll go there for now until I figure it all out," Madeline continues to tell him her plan. "I know this is a shock Andy, but I need to do this. I need to get away from everything."
"What about the house? Do you mind if I stay here for awhile?"
"Of course not," she tells him. "I won't list the house for sale until you've found a place to live, okay? This is for the best."
Andy comes up and hugs her. "I'll miss you Madeline. Promise me you'll keep in touch. You're the only thing I have left of Reese."
Madeline bites her lower lip. "I know. I feel the same way Andy. I'll miss you so much too. But I have to do this, I have to leave Twin Peaks."
Scene Seven - Roboto
"All of this fighting! All of these secrets and plots, they have to stop now!" Kim yells at the three men in the office with her. "How many people have to be hurt before this damn feud between Dominick and Bob will end?"
Tyler goes and pours Kim a glass of water. He quickly brings it over to her. "Here, drink this. It will help you calm down."
Kim takes the glass and starts to drink the water. She pauses for a moment as she starts to shake. The glass falls from her hand and shatters.
"Kimberly?" Bob asks concerned, moving up to his wife. "Are you alright?"
"I'm fine," Kim says looking up at him but suddenly she grabs her stomach. "Ahhhh!" she screams in pain.
"Kim?" Tyler asks her concerned. He may have been lying to her about his real identity, but he never lied to her about his feelings for her; those were always very real to him.
Before Kim can reply, she collapses to the ground. "Kimberly!" Bob yells as he rushes to his wife's side. He looks up at Dominick and Tyler. "Don't just stand there! Call 9-1-1!" He turns his attention back to his wife. "Kim! Can you hear me? Kimberly! Help is on the way, don't worry help is on the way."
