Scene One - The Calimo Mansion

Kim looks out of her bedroom window of the mansion and sighs heavily. She has moved out of the master bedroom that she once shared with her husband as she knows that Bob is still livid with her for having an affair and getting pregnant with Tyler's child. What she is desperate for him to understand is that, she had no idea that Johnny was really Tyler when she slept with him. Of course, she would have not slept with Tyler had she known he was Dominick's son, Bob's worst enemy.

Part of her problem now, however, is that Bob is refusing to give her another chance. In fact, she's almost certain that once the baby is born, she will have to move out of the mansion because Bob seems determined to end their marriage. Her only saving grace is that Victoria warned her not to have any more stress during her pregnancy; although, the truth coming out and Bob confronting her and Tyler was already pretty stressful for her.

"I have to make him understand," she says to herself as she draws her curtain closed. "I have to ensure that Bob realizes that I never meant to hurt him. It was the last thing I wanted to do."

She turns around and is startled when she sees Tyler standing at her doorway. "What are you doing here? How did you get in?" she gasps.

Tyler moves into the bedroom and shuts her door, but doesn't latch it in the hinge. "I had to see you. I had to come and make sure that you're okay and that our baby is okay."

She shakes her head. "Don't say that to me Tyler," she says back to him, knowing that she worked very hard to try to keep the truth about carrying his baby a secret.

"I'm not going to pretend that I don't know that the baby is mine Kim," he says as he comes up to her and grabs her hand. "And you should know that you won't keep me from my child."

Kim feels her eyes swell with water. "You have to believe me when I tell you that I had no idea that the baby was yours," she admits to him as she wipes her eye from a falling tear. "I really believed that Bob was my baby's father."

"I know," he whispers back to her. "You wanted to believe it. You didn't want to believe that our love could create a child."

"Love?" Kim asks taken aback by what he said. "I love my husband, Tyler. What we had was an affair."

"You can't honestly tell me that's all I meant to you," he says coming closer to her. "You can't honestly tell me you feel nothing when we are this close to each other."

Kim gulps as she looks into his eyes. Before she knows what's happening, he's leaning in and kissing her on her lips. They pause for a moment before she pulls him in for another kiss, unaware Bob is standing behind them at the doorway of the bedroom.

Scene Two - The Calimo House; Robbie, Paige & Felicia's Home

"You really kicked him out?" a shocked Victoria asks Robbie as they sit in the living room drinking some wine together. Victoria just heard Robbie reveal how he showed up at the house and asked Jeff to leave since Leah left him the house in her will. Victoria knew that Leah had left Robbie the house, but she never believed that Robbie would kick Jeff, Leah's husband, out of the house. It's further proof, in her mind, that she has no idea who Robbie is right now.

Robbie swallows a mouthful of wine and grins back at her. "I did," Robbie says proudly. "He didn't even see it coming, which was part of the fun, I have to admit."

"Fun?" Victoria shakes her head back to him. "I can't believe you think kicking a grieving man out of his house fun."

"But it's not his house," Robbie corrects her. "Leah left the house to me in the will. This is my house."

"Whatever," Victoria rolls her eyes at him. "Look, I know that you and Leah spent many years together in this house…"

"Why do I get the feeling that there's a but coming…" Robbie says back to her as he grabs his wine.

"But, you and Leah divorced a few years ago Robbie. Jeff was her current husband. They loved each other very much. I think you told me those exact words when we were in Lake Tahoe."

"I can't control what Leah wanted," Robbie replies to her, ignoring what she is saying.

"Leah hadn't updated her will in a few years Robbie! I can almost promise you that Leah wouldn't have thrown her husband to the street if she were still alive," she continues to scold him.

"But she's not alive!" he yells back at her, finally losing. He stands up and smashes his wine glass against the wall. "Don't you understand? She's never coming back Victoria! Never! And you know what? Jeff is the reason that she's dead! He's the reason that Leah is gone!"

Victoria looks at him in shock. She slowly stands up and looks at him. "I think I should go Robbie. You clearly need time to adjust to everything that has happened," she says slowly to him. "But just remember, Jeff was Leah's husband and frankly, he deserves more than this."

Scene Three - The Riverside Delicatessen

Jeff sits at a table with a sandwich, coffee and his IPad open. He's looking at a real estate site, hoping to find something quickly as he currently has nowhere to live since Robbie has kicked him out of the house that he had been living in. He can't believe that Robbie would be so cruel; while he knows that Leah did leave him the house in her will, he never thought that Robbie would actually kick him out of the house, especially since Paige is home from Europe and is living with him.

As he takes a bite of his sandwich, he feels his frustrations grow more as he doesn't see much listed for sale currently. As he chews his food, he realizes that he's probably looking at the worse time of the year; no one really wants to sell their house in late fall, early winter. Most people like to be comfortable while the snow is on the ground.

"I have to find something," he says to himself.

"Talking to yourself?" a voice says standing above him.

He looks up and sees Meggan, holding a sandwich and a cranberry juice. "Mind if I join you?" she asks him as he extends his arm to her. "What are you looking at, exactly?"

Jeff looks over at her. "A real estate app on my IPad."

"Oh, are you thinking of selling your house?" Meggan asks him before she takes a bite of her sandwich.

Jeff shakes his head. "Robbie kicked me out."

"What?" she gasps, shocked by what she just heard. "How can he do that?"

"Short version of the long story is that Leah hadn't updated her will in a few years and so, the house was left to Robbie. He kicked me out last night and he is moving in."

"So, where are you going to stay? And what about Paige?" Meggan grills him, trying to wrap her head about what Jeff is telling her.

"I stayed at the Executive Hotel last night," he reveals to her. "But that's why I'm looking at real estate. Problem is, there doesn't seem to be much on the market right now."

"Well, the time of year is bad."

"That's what I was thinking. I guess I'll have to rent something," he says back to her. "I'm hoping that Paige will come with me but I haven't actually seen her yet to tell her what's going on."

Meggan pauses and looks back at Jeff. She can't imagine what he's going through right now, having lost Leah and then being kicked out of the house that he was living in with Leah. "I hope I'm not out of line when I say this…" she begins to say.

Jeff chuckles at her. "Trust me Meggan, I've heard my share of out of line things the last couple of days. Nothing you'd say would be out of line at this point."

Meggan smiles back to him. "My father just bought the Wilkins estate," she says back to him. "You know, after Reese passed away, Madeline sold the estate and moved to Los Angeles."

"I heard," Jeff nods back to her. "She came to say goodbye to me, actually," he reveals to her. "Madeline and I were close once upon a time."

"The point is," Meggan says, changing the topic back to her. "I live in this huge house. If you and Paige need some where to crash for a while, we have more than enough room for you."

Jeff looks back at her in surprise. The last thing he was expecting was for Meggan to offer him a place to stay. "You're not saying anything," she observes back to him.

"I'm just surprised by your offer," he admits to her.

"Well, when my family first came back to town, I had a similar offer from a friend. Let's just say that I'm paying it forward. So," she grins to him. "What do you say? Roomies?"

Scene Four - The Sugarbowl

Dawn grabs her mocha and moves to the window seat to join Paige, who is already sitting down with her hot chocolate. Dawn smiles as she sits next to her friend, excited to catch up with her.

"I can't believe that we have both been back in town for a few months and we haven't been able to see each other," Dawn says to her friend, as she takes a sip of her mocha.

"I know," Paige replies to her. "I think it's probably my fault? I've been so … I don't even know … with everything going on surrounding my Mom, it's been hard finding me time, you know?"

Dawn looks over at her. "How are you doing with that? I mean, the loss of your Mom? I'm so sorry, by the way."

Paige gives her half a grin. "Thanks. I mean, it's tough. I'm just trying to remember her every chance I get and not be sad all the time. Someone recently told me that she would want me to still live my life, so that's really what I'm trying to do."

Dawn moves a piece of her hair behind her ear. "That sounds like pretty good advice to me," she says as she takes another sip of her mocha.

"What about you? How are things for you since you've been back from Europe?" Paige asks her friend before taking a drink of her hot chocolate.

Dawn pauses before she replies to her friend as she thinks about Helen finding her parents, Dawn's grandparents. While this should have been a joyful time for her and her family, she knows that Reg hasn't liked Adam, which has created turmoil between her parents. So much turmoil, that they were fighting non-stop. Dawn finally had to break up a fight which caused Helen to go back to Baltimore alone.

"Can I be honest with you Paige?" Dawn asks her friend.

"Of course you can," Paige says with half a laugh.

"Sometimes, I really miss Europe," she says back to her.

"Oh my gosh! Me too," Paige replies with half a chuckle. "It seems like so much drama goes on with my family."

"Mine too!" Dawn agrees with her. "Like, my Mom found her parents and my Grandpa doesn't like my Dad, so my parents were fighting all the time. It was really annoying. I actually called them out on it."

"You didn't!?"

"Someone had too," Dawn replies while rolling her eyes. "It's just hard being the parent when I should be the child, you know?"

"Oh, trust be Dawn," Paige winks back at her. "I completely understand."


Cory moves away from the barista after she passes him his coffee. He moves over to the coffee bar to put some cream and sugar into his coffee, while his mind is racing about the recent developments in his life. He can't help but think about the kiss that he shared with Rebecca recently. He can't say that he is surprised that the kiss happened; he had been feeling the sexual tension between them build for a little while as he had seen her in her underwear and then her bikini. He's not the type of man that would cheat on Robin, but the fact that she's been away for so long has clearly gotten to him. Still, he knows that he did the right thing by sitting Rebecca down and telling that they can only be friends.

"Thankfully she agreed with me," he says to himself before he takes a sip of his coffee. "I can't let anything happen that would jeopardize my marriage to Robin."

When he turns around, he can't help but see Dominick walk into the coffeehouse. Dominick, immediately, sees his son in law and approaches him. While Dominick knows that Cory is probably still upset with him for trying to fake Robin's death, he has to try to make amends.

"Cory," Dominick says with a smile on his face. "It's been awhile, how are you?"

"I'm just on my way out," Cory replies to him coldly.

Cory stops when Dominick continues to talk to him. "Look, I know what I did was wrong but I was just trying to help. I know it seems like a funny way of showing it …"

"You got that right," Cory snaps back at him. "Look, for what it's worth, Robin is seemingly doing better."

Dominick arches his eyebrow. "What do you mean, seemingly? You don't know?"

Cory sighs and moves closer to Dominick. "If I confide in you, will you promise it will stay between us?"

"Of course," Dominick nods back to him. "I'd like that very much. I've missed knowing what is going on with Robin, especially since Leah has …"

"I'm so sorry about your loss, by the way," Cory tells him as they move to a booth in the back of the coffeehouse.

"I appreciate that, thank you," Dominick says as he sits across from Cory. "So, tell me what's going on with Robin."

"Well, I got her to go to a mental facility, as you know," Cory reveals to Dominick. "She was there for a couple of weeks and then, suddenly, she stopped taking my telephone calls and I was moved to the 'do not see' list."

Dominick arches his eyebrow. "That doesn't make sense," he says back to Cory. "Why would Robin stop all communication with you?"

Cory shrugs his shoulders. "I wish I knew," he says back to Dominick. "Rebecca agreed to go visit her and she did."

"What did Rebecca report back to you?"

"That Robin was making progress," Cory tells Dominick.

"I don't like this Cory," Dominick informs him. "Something is definitely going on for Robin to be shutting you out. The question is, what is it?"

Scene Five - Twin Peaks General Hospital; The Cafeteria

Adam and Natasha stand side by side up against a wall in the cafeteria. Neither one of them wanted to go home but both were tired of sitting in the waiting rooms, so they texted each other that they would stand together for a while. Adam is at the hospital, waiting to hear some kind of update about Reg and his stroke; he's still upset with Helen, however, about her decision to allow Reg and Barbara to stay with them after Reg is released. He wouldn't mind so much if Reg didn't hate Adam so much, but that's the entire reason why Adam left their last visit early.

Natasha is still at the hospital because Jacob is still in ICU. Not only are his lungs still developing, but one of his lungs has an infection. She's upset with Shane because she feels like she's going through this situation alone because he has been away a lot since he accepted the Chief of Staff job; which she knew was going to happen but he didn't seem to listen to her.

"Funny how we are both in here playing the waiting game," Adam says to her, looking at his friend.

"And how we are both unhappy with our spouses at the same time," she says with half a chuckle. "I mean, you should have seen Shane when I confronted him about not being there when Jacob went into shock. He acted like had everything under control. Nothing is in control right now, but he's fine because he's Chief of Staff."

Adam nods back to her. "At least you know your in-laws, one of whom hates you, won't be living with you. I'm still surprised that Helen asked Reg and Barbara to move in with us without consulting me."

"You would have said no, wouldn't have you?" Natasha asks him.

"Knowing how much Reg hates me? I don't know how I could have said yes," Adam admits to her as they continue to look at each other.

"It's funny because I don't know how anyone could hate you," she says poking him with her finger.

He grins and starts to poke her back. She starts to laugh before they stop and look at each other in the eyes.

"Thank you," he says back to her in a quiet voice.

"For what?" she replies to him.

"Making me laugh. It's been too long since I just … laughed."

"Me too," she says back to him.

They look each other for a quick moment and then he leans in and kisses her passionately. The kiss lasts, only for a second, before they part. They look each other in surprise by what just happened.

"Sorry!" they say in unison.

"I didn't mean too," Natasha says after.

"I know, me either," he replies, agreeing with her. "It was nothing. Let's just forget it."

Natasha nods back to him, still watching him. "Yea, good idea."

Scene Six - The Calimo Mansion

The door to Kim's room opens and Bob sees Tyler and Kim kissing by her bed and he immediately feels his blood boil. How dare they kiss in his house; how dare Kim make a fool of him in his house.

"Well, isn't this cozy," Bob says, interrupting the kiss between the to-be-parents.

"Bob," Kim gasps at the sight of her husband. She looks at Tyler and slaps him hard across the face, thinking quickly about trying to save her marriage.. "I told you! Not to come back here!"

Tyler puts his hand to his cheek and looks back at Kim. "I thought…"

"You thought wrong!" Kim yells at him, trying to put on a show for Bob.

"How the hell did you get passed security?" Bob asks him as he comes into the bedroom. "You are not welcome in this house, do you hear me? If Kimberly has asked for you to leave, then you best leave."

"You have no idea what you're talking about," Tyler says grinding his teeth at Bob. "We were having a nice conversation before you interrupted."

"Oh, is that so?" Bob asks him coming closer to him.

Behind Tyler, Kim feels her stomach have some pains as the stress of the moment is clearly getting to her.

"Ahh!" she screams, causing the men to stop their bickering.

"Kim?" Tyler asks her, concerned as he turns around. "What is it?"

Kim looks up at him. "My water just broke," she says with a look of worry on her face. "I'm in labour!"
