Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Thank you so much for coming by Daddy," Natasha smiles to Bob, who is in the hospital room after seeing his grandson for the first time. He can't believe that his daughter has had a child; it warms his heart. He only wishes that Sofia was around to see Jacob. He knows that she would be so proud of Natasha and Jacob. "I know you're busy."

"Nonsense," he tells her back with a grin on his face. "Nothing is more important to me than my family. Jacob is absolutely precious," he continues to tell her. "I hope you know I told the doctors that nothing is too good for my grandson. Whatever he needs while his lungs develop, he will have."

Natasha gets water in her eyes. "I appreciate that very much," she replies to him. "And yes, he is very precious. I can't believe I created that little person."

Bob puts his head down before he moves closer to the bed and sits next to her. "I can't help but think of your mother," he admits to her, still thinking of Sofia.

"Eva? She just left before you got here. She's just as excited and worried about Jacob as you are," Natasha tells him, not clueing into what he is referring too.

"No," he says quietly looking up at his daughter. "I meant Sofia. She would have been gushing over Jacob."

"Oh Daddy," Natasha replies as she grabs his hand. "Some pain never truly goes away, does it?" she asks him as he shakes his head. "I can tell you that I feel her with me right now. Ever since I went into labour, I don't know, I have felt like her presence was watching over Jacob and me. I think she helped pull us all through."

Bob looks at her and smiles as he fights back tears. "You have so much of her inside you, you know that? She is always with us. I just … I miss her in times like this," he replies to her. "Anyways, I know you're probably exhausted so I'm going to take off. Give my best to Shane and I will be back very soon."

"I love you Dad," Natasha replies as her father moves to the door.

"I love you too," he says looking back at her before he leaves the hospital room.

Natasha shuts her eyes hoping to get some rest. First Eva and Donovan stopped by to see her and check in on Jacob, then Bob came by. After her morning, she'd like nothing more than to have a few moments to try to get some sleep. She soon opens her eyes, however, when she hears the door to her room open.

"Sorry, I didn't mean to disturb you," Shane says as he comes into the room and looks at his wife. "Go back to sleep, I can sit and wait for you to wake up."

"Its fine, is something wrong with Jacob?" Natasha asks concerned about her son.

"No, he's fine. The doctor's say he is getting stronger each and every day," Shane replies to her, causing her worry to settle down.

"You look upset, what is wrong?"

"I have something to tell you but I don't think you're going to like it," he reveals to her as she arches her eyebrow.

"Shane? Please, tell me what's going on," she pleads with him.

"I've just accepted the Chief of Staff position," he says to her as her eyes open wider. "I'm going to be the COS here."


Bob moves into the waiting room quickly as he has something to take care of before he leaves the hospital. While he was visiting Natasha and Jacob, his mind was really racing with how he should handle the fact that he now knows who Kim was having an affair with. The thought of Kim sleeping with Tyler Robertson, Dominick's son, makes him sick to his stomach. He can't even make the argument that Kim was unaware of Tyler's true identity until recently because the affair shouldn't have happened in the first place, in his mind.

"And it's not that she only had an affair with Dominick's son," he whispers to himself as he pulls his phone out of his pocket. "She got pregnant with the bastard's child."

He dials a number before moving the phone to his ear. "It's me," he says in a low voice. "Remember what we spoke about earlier? It's going to happen tonight," he continues to say. "Make sure the message appears that it's coming from my wife. Tyler has to think that Kim is asking him to come over not me … Let me know when this is all done? Don't disappoint me."

He hangs up the phone and puts it back into his pocket. He sighs a breath of relief knowing that his plan is going to go accordingly to plan; it has too.

Scene Two - The Sugarbowl

"We have to stop running into each other like this," Meggan smiles as she approaches Jeff, who is sitting at the window bar with his coffee as he reads the latest edition of the Twin Peaks Sun. Meggan got herself an iced coffee since she will be packing most of the day as her family prepares to move into the Wilkins estate that they bought from Madeline.

Jeff looks up and sees Meggan approaching. "It is a small town and considering this place has the best coffee, I'm sure we are bound to run into each other. We just have to deal with it."

Meggan nods back to him. "I suppose that's fair," she says as she purses her lips together. "I was hoping that the last time we saw each other we had turned a corner and we were going to be civil with each other. If that's not that case, I must have misunderstood."

She turns to walk away from Jeff but he calls out to her. "Meggan," he says as she turns around to face him, moving a piece of her hair behind her ear as she does. "I'm sorry if that came across cold. It's been … a trying time for me."

Meggan moves closer to him and sits in the chair next to him. "I can't imagine what you're going through having lost your wife," she admits to him. "Just know that I'm not the enemy, okay?"

Jeff looks at her and wonders what her angle is. "I will tell you what I told Paige," she continues to tell him. "I was about Paige's age when I lost my mother. I understand what she is going through. If you or her ever need to talk, just know that I'm here. I'm not trying to be intrusive or anything … just think of it as a way I can try to make up for past mistakes."

"I'll keep that in mind Meggan," he says back to her. "Thank you for understanding what I'm going through."

"Sure," she smiles to him. "I should get going. Have a good day."

"You too."


Tyler moves to the bar with his coffee to put some cream and sugar in his beverage. As he does, he thinks about Kim and wonders what she is doing today. He recalls how he went to visit her after she was released from the hospital when she collapsed after she learned his true identity; she basically told him to stay away from her because of his lies. Still, inside Tyler's heart, he can't help but still have very strong feelings for her.

"I just have to give her some time and she will realize that she still cares for me as well," he says to himself as he moves his coffee to his mouth and takes a drink of it. "I'm not going to give up that easily."

He suddenly feels his cell phone vibrate in his pants. He pulls it out and gets a small grin on his face when he sees it's a message from Kim. "Meet me at the house tonight," he says as he reads the message.

He looks up with a grin on his face. "See, it's already working."

Scene Three - The Claus House; Jeff, Paige & Felicia's Home

"Frederick, what a pleasant surprise," Felicia says as she opens the front door to the house and sees her doctor. "Please come in."

Frederick comes into the house and moves into the living room. "Did you forget that we had an appointment set up for today?"

Felicia moves into the living room behind him and arches her eyebrow. "Was that scheduled for today? I think it must have slipped my mind," she tells him. "With everything going on, I can't say that I did remember. I'm sorry."

"That's okay," he tells her. "I'm here now, so why don't we talk? How are you holding up dealing with the loss of Leah?"

She pours him a cup of coffee and then passes it to him before she sits beside him. She pauses for a moment as she tries to keep herself composed. "Every day is a struggle," she admits to him, trying not to get emotional. "I can't believe she's gone. I really can't."

"You know that this will get easier, right?" he says to her before he takes a sip of the coffee.

"That's what Tyler said," she says back to him. "My son is home which is one of the best things that could have happened to me and this family. The hardest part is that I don't remember what happened in Lake Tahoe and I wish I could. I really need to know what happened."

"We don't want to rush the return of your memories," Frederick tells her. "We have to let them come back naturally, on their own. When your mind thinks you're ready to have them back, you will regain your memory."

Felicia stands up and moves to the window of the house. "I hope you're right. I just feel like I'm missing a piece of the puzzle."

Frederick moves behind her and puts his hands on her shoulders. As soon as he touches her, he feels a sense of being at home. He longs for the day she feels the same way he does. "They will come back, just give yourself some time."

Suddenly, Felicia shuts her eyes and for a split second she can see Leah sitting in a chair in a farm house. She shakes her head hoping that the flash will last longer but it comes and goes quickly. She turns around to face Frederick with tears in her eyes and her hands shaking.

"Felicia? What is it? What's wrong?" he asks her, knowing that she is upset about something.

"I … I just had a flash. I think my memory is coming back," she says as a tear falls down her cheek and Frederick pulls her into a hug, as he hopes that she is ready for what her memories will do to her.

Scene Four - Chris' Townhouse

Trenyce moves into the living room of Chris' relatively new townhouse. It's her first time being in the space that he bought, so she takes a look around the masculine looking space, which isn't her taste but she appreciates it for what it is.

"This is a nice place," she tells him, as he smiles back to her.

"Thanks," he replies to her. "I thought it was about time that I get out of the Twin Peaks Executive Hotel and into my own place. Especially since things are going so well with the plan."

"Am I the first one that has seen the place?" she asks him, hoping to get some information on what is going on with him and Savannah.

Chris shakes his head as he takes a drink of water. "Savannah has been here," he reveals to her as Trenyce arches her eyebrow. "As in, the plan is going very well."

Trenyce knows that she has long had her doubts that this plan of Chris' to get close to Savannah in hopes of getting Andrew back won't work. She is scared that they will only end up hurting Savannah, and possibly Andrew, in the long run.

"She's been here?" she asks as Chris nods his head. "Just how close have you two become?"

Chris smiles back to her knowing that he and Savannah have become lovers. He knows that Trenyce has her doubts about the plan but he thinks everything is going just fine.

"Let me just tell you that I have Savannah right where I want her," Chris winks over to her.

"Oh my God…" Trenyce says slowly back to him. "You're sleeping with her, aren't you?"

Chris takes another drink of his water instead of replying to Trenyce. "I can't believe this Chris! How far are you going to go to get Andrew back from Savannah?"

"As far as I have too!" he yells back at her, finally losing his cool with her. "I know you have your apprehensions Trenyce but this is the only way to get our son back! Doesn't that mean anything to you?"

"Of course it does!" she replies to him. "I'm just scared of what will happen when Savannah learns the truth."

"Here's the thing," he says back to her as their eyes lock. "She won't find out the truth. Not now, not ever. You have to trust me, Trenyce."

Scene Five - Riverside Delicatessen

Daisy moves into the deli hoping to grab a quick lunch before she has to head into city council for the rest of the afternoon. After placing her order, she looks around and spots Savannah sitting by herself having her lunch. She hasn't seen Savannah in a few weeks so she finds herself moving over to her table.

"Savannah, hi," Daisy says as Savannah looks up and finishes chewing a piece of her sandwich.

"Hi Daisy," Savannah smiles back to her. "Have a seat, please."

"Thank you," Daisy replies to her as she sits down. "I'll only be a minute, I have to get my order to go. How are you?"

"I'm alright," Savannah nods back to her. "Andrew is getting so big, you would be surprised by how much he has changed."

"I can only imagine," Daisy says back to her. "I hope one day it would be okay for me and my family to visit him. We raised him Savannah, it would be nice to still be a part of his life."

Savannah moves a string of hair behind her ear. "I know and I agree. I think he just needs a little more time to completely be adjusted to living with me."

"That's understandable," Daisy tells her. "I think it's great that he's adjusting. The custody hearing was hard on everyone, including Andrew. It would be nice to try to put that behind us."

"He does still love you and your family. Don't think I don't know that," Savannah replies to her. "And actually, I think he will be seeing some more of Chris sooner rather than later."

Daisy arches her eyebrow. "Chris? Why would Andrew see more of Chris?"

Savannah gulps wondering if she said too much about her budding relationship with Chris.

"Is something going on between you and Chris?" Daisy asks her as she notices that Savannah hasn't replied. "Wait, don't answer that," Daisy says, continuing to observe Savannah. "I can see that it's written on your face. Let me give you a piece of advice, though. From someone that was married to Chris, just be careful, okay?" Daisy tells her. "My lunch is ready, enjoy your day."

Daisy moves to grab her lunch and as she does, she can't help but think about her birthday pool party where she overheard Chris and Trenyce talking about a plan; when she confronted them about it, they denied having any plan but now that she knows Chris and Savannah are an item she has to wonder if there is a plan.

"What is going on?" she asks herself as she leaves the restaurant, hoping that Trenyce is going to hurt Savannah.

Scene Six - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"I can't believe this," Natasha says as she is still shocked by what Shane has just revealed to her.

"You know that I have wanted to have this COS job Natasha," he tells her, hoping that she will not be too upset with his decision. "Me accepting it shouldn't be much of a shock."

"No?" Natasha asks him quickly. "The fact that I didn't want you to take it and that I went into premature labour because we were fighting about it and the fact that Jacob is still struggling in ICU didn't come into your mind at all when you were making your decision?"

Shane sighs heavily and moves closer to her. "I know that you're upset with me," he tells her. "But I promise you I will make this work with our family."

A tear runs down Natasha's face before she looks back at her husband. "I don't know what to think anymore."

"Let me guess, you're going call Cory and ask him to come over," Shane spits, recalling how he saw Cory and Natasha share a close moment the previous day in the hospital room.

"What the hell is that supposed to mean?" Natasha asks him, wondering where that came from.

"I saw you and Cory together the other day," Shane reveals to her.

"We are friends Shane," Natasha rolls her eyes. "All this fighting isn't doing us any good. You took the job, congratulations. I hope it's all that you wanted it to be. Now, if you excuse me, I'd like to get some rest before I go back and visit Jacob."

Shane nods to his wife. "I'm sorry I've upset you but this will work Natasha. I promise you, it will work."

Scene Seven - The Calimo Mansion

Bob looks around the living room of the mansion. In the corner by the French doors that peer into the garden, there is a table set up with a single red rose in a vase, candles and a bottle of champagne chilling. The fire place has a roaring fire and there is classical music playing. He looks one more time to ensure that everything looks perfect. He checks his watch before he gets a grin on his face.

"Show time," he says to himself before he quickly leaves the living room.

At the front door, Tyler comes into the mansion. He raced over once he got the message from Kim that she wanted to see him. He moves into the living room and sees the romantic evening set up. He gets a smile on his face, thinking that Kim has arranged all of this for the two of them.

"I knew that she'd come around and want us to have a future together," he says to himself as he looks at the champagne. His mind quickly wonders why she'd have a bottle of champagne chilled when she's pregnant.

He looks up when he hears Kim enter the living room. She looks around surprised. "Tyler?" she asks in surprise to see him. "What is all of this?"

He shrugs his shoulders. "I thought you put all of this together," he says back to her as he approaches her. "I thought you did this for us."

"Us?" she asks him, surprised by what he is saying. "The last time I saw you, I thought I made it perfectly clear that there was no us," she replies to him.

"So, you're saying you didn't put all of this together?" he asks her confused by what is going on.

She shakes her head no. "Then who did?" he asks as Bob suddenly appears behind them.
