Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Adam and Natasha's lips part and they look at each other, both realizing
what they are doing. Natasha quickly pulls away from him, knowing that
she can't be kissing another man, yet alone a married man like Adam. While
she and Shane are having their problems, she can't rely on Adam for comfort;
they both have too much at stake.
"I'm sorry," she finally tells him. "I shouldn't have kissed
Adam shakes his head and runs his hand over his face. "Don't apologize,"
he tells her. "We both let it happen. I think it's that we are both
tired of feeling shut out in our marriages."
Natasha turns to him with tears in her eyes. "I guess I'm just tired
of feeling like my feelings don't matter with Shane, you know? Our baby
is in ICU and all he cares about is that damned Chief of Staff position."
Adam moves closer to her again. "I know and I wish I could make him
"The way I wish I could make Helen see that she shouldn't be taking
sides in this thing with her father," Natasha says, their eyes locked
again. "Don't look at me like that."
"Like what?" he asks, still looking at her.
"Like you want to kiss me again," she says as she bites her
"What if I want to?"
Natasha doesn't say anything back to him. Instead, she pulls him in and
they kiss again. He pushes her up against the wall as the kiss becomes
more passionate. Their lips part again and she looks at Shane's office
door. She grabs the door handle and they move inside the office, closing
the door behind them.
Dawn opens the door to Reg's hospital room and steps inside. She looks
at her the man that she just learned is her Grandfather. She moves closer
to his bed as he lays sleeping. He hasn't woken up since he had his stroke
but the doctors claim that it is normal as his body is still recovering.
She looks at him as she sits next to him and grabs his hand.
"Hi Grandpa," she says as she moves some hair behind her ear
with her other hand. "It's me, Dawn. I know that I haven't been here
to see you yet but I'm here now. I wish you could see me in my dress for
the gala, I think it's pretty," she continues to tell him.
Behind her, Helen opens the door a little and listens to her daughter
talk to her father.
"I really want you to wake up," Dawn says to Reg. "Mom
and Dad, they keep fighting and all I want is for it to stop," she
continues to say, unaware Helen is listening to their conversation. "If
you wake up, I really think you and Dad could repair your relationship
and we could try to move on together as a family. You have no idea how
much it means to us that you and Grandma have come into our lives. We
just have to make this work. The first step though is for you to wake
Dawn smiles at her Grandpa and leans in to give him a kiss on his forehead.
"I'm going to go back to the party upstairs, but next time I'm here,
your eyes better be open."
Helen closes the door and moves into the hallway. She takes a deep breath
and suddenly feels guilty for shutting Adam out of the visit with Reg.
After hearing Dawn talk about wanting her family to get along, Helen knows
that she has to try to make this work with Adam. One way or another, her
family will get over this.
"I have to make this right," she whispers to herself as Dawn
opens the door and comes into the hallway to join her mother.
"How was your visit?" Helen asks her, turning with a half a
smile on her face.
"It was alright. I hope he wakes up soon," Dawn replies to her.
"Me too dear," Helen tells her. "Look, I think I may have
been too hard on your father. Do you want to go and find him? He should
come and be with us while we visit Reg."
Dawn's face lights up. "I think he'd appreciate that Mom," Dawn
tells her. "Dad isn't the bad guy here. He just wants Grandpa to
show him some respect."
"When did you become so wise?" Helen asks her as she gets water
in her eyes. "Go get your father, it's time our family heals."
In the recreational room where the gala is taking place, Shane grabs a
glass of champagne. He looks around the room and all the guests that are
seemingly have a good time. He doesn't see his wife, however.
He recalls how Natasha told him that she was going to check on Jacob,
who is still in the ICU. He checks his watch quickly and realizes that
she has been gone for some time. While he knows that Natasha is upset
that is officially about to take over the Chief of Staff position at the
hospital, he doesn't believe that she would miss his speech, which is
going to happen shortly.
"Where are you Natasha?" he asks himself before he takes another
sip of his champagne.
Meggan grabs a glass of sparkling water and looks around the room, taken
aback by how nice the venue looks. She has been to these hospital gala's
before and they usually fall flat but this year, she is pleased by how
good it has turned out.
She rolls her eyes and turns around when she sees Vinny and Daisy sharing
a laugh together across the dance floor. The last thing she wants to do
this evening is see Vinny and Daisy being all lovey dovey together. She
realizes that now that she is no longer living at the mansion with them,
she is going to have a more difficult time in trying to break them up
and getting back together with Vinny.
"I won't give up though," she whispers to herself as she sees
Jeff standing alone with a glass of champagne. She looks at the man and
realizes that he looks sad. She can't imagine what it's like being at
a big event like this having just lost his wife. She moves closer to her
new roommate. "Hey stranger," she says with half a grin on her
Jeff looks at Meggan and smiles back to her, even though he's forcing
himself to smile. He had told himself once he was done his glass of champagne
he was going to leave. He doesn't want to be there anymore, especially
after Paige has told him that she isn't going to move in to the Richardson
estate; instead, she's going to live with Robbie and Felicia.
"Hey," he finally says to her.
"You look a million miles away," she observes to him. "I
gather, you're not having a good time?"
He shrugs a little. "I was planning on leaving shortly, that should
tell you how good of a time I'm having."
She laughs a little. "I get it, I'm sure playing dress up and drinking
champagne is the last thing you want to do."
"Pretty much," he winks back at her. "You look great, though."
Meggan blushes a little. "Thanks, that's nice of you to say."
She takes a sip of her water as she continues to look at him. "So,
why don't you tell me what's really bugging you."
Jeff sighs and looks back at her. "Is it that obvious that something
Meggan nods back to him. "It's Paige," he reveals to her. "She's
decided that she's not going to be moving into your place. She wants to
live with Robbie and Felicia."
"Oh Jeff," Meggan says as she moves closer to him. "I'm
so sorry," she continues as she pulls him into a hug. "If I
can do anything to help, please let me know."
"Have I told you how beautiful you look tonight?" Robbie asks
Paige as he comes up to her at the food table.
Paige grins back to the man that she believed was her father for so many
years. "Thank you," she smiles to him. "This is some party,
hey? It's so fancy."
"I guess it is the first time you've been old enough to attend something
like this," Robbie replies to her. "It's is pretty nice. Your
mother always loved coming to these kind of parties."
"I was thinking about that earlier," Paige reveals to him. "I
was thinking about the kind of dress that Mom would have been wearing
"She would have looked beautiful, no doubt," Robbie says back
to her. "You look so much like her."
Paige smiles at the compliment. "I saw Jeff earlier," Paige
informs him. "He asked me to move in with him."
Robbie's eyes open wider. "Oh yea?"
"I told him that I wasn't going too. I want to live with you and
Grandma, if that's okay with you."
"Of course it is," Robbie quickly says back to her, trying not
to seem overly excited with her decision.
"Thank you. I didn't want to move out of the house that Mom lived
in. I feel so close to her there," she continues to tell him.
"I understand," Robbie says back to her as he pulls her into
a hug. "You know I love you, right? I'm so glad that we will be living
together again Paige."
"Me too Daddy," she says, realizing that she called Robbie Dad.
She finds herself hugging him tighter than before.
"Did you see Meggan?" Daisy asks Vinny, as he passes her another
glass of champagne.
Vinny watches Daisy as she takes a sip of her champagne before he replies
to his fiancé. "I did, but I don't want this night to be about
our ex's," he says to her with half a grin.
Daisy nods back to him. "You're right, I'm sorry I mentioned it,"
she quickly says back to him. "Now that she's moved out, we can try
to move on with our lives."
"Exactly," Vinny replies to her. "Let's just focus on us
and our wedding plans."
Before Daisy can reply, Andy comes up to them carrying a whiskey on the
rocks. "Hi hi Daisy!"
Daisy looks at the young man and realizes that he's extremely intoxicated.
She feels her heart break inside her chest because she knows that he is
still dealing with the loss of Reese, but she also realizes that drowning
his sorrows in alcohol is not the way he should be coping with that.
"Andy, hi," she finally replies to him. "Are you having
a good time?"
Andy nods back to her as he takes another drink of his whiskey. "They
have the good stuff," he says raising his glass a little.
"How much have you had buddy?" Vinny asks him, noting that Andy
smells of booze.
"Not too many," Andy says with a chuckle. "Maybe four?
No, no, maybe five? I've lost count."
Daisy looks over at Vinny, who nods back to her quickly. Vinny grabs his
cell phone and makes a phone call.
"Andy, I think it's time you go home," Daisy tells him as she
puts her arm around him and they move to the door. "Vinny is calling
you an Uber right now."
"But the party is just beginning," Andy slurs his sentence out.
"I think it's almost over, actually," Daisy says back to him,
still moving him closer to the door. "I want you to go home and try
to sleep. And please call me first thing in the morning, okay? I want
to make sure that you're okay."
Andy looks at her and she can see the tears forming in his eyes. "I
don't want to sleep Daisy. I always see Reese when I close my eyes. I
don't want too Daisy," he says before he stumbles a little.
"Oh Andy," she says as she hugs him. "This is what's best
for tonight, okay?"
Andy nods back to her. "You've always known what is best," he
"The Uber is here," Vinny announces to them as he approaches
"Let me finish my whiskey!" Andy laughs before he downs the
liquid left in his glass.
Daisy watches as the young man leaves the room. She takes a deep breath
and puts her hand on her chest, hoping that Andy starts to cope with the
loss of Reese a little bit better.
"Darling, there you are!" Eva says as she approaches Dominick,
and he quickly passes her another glass of champagne. "The evening
turned out beautifully, don't you think?"
Dominick raises his glass to her and they have a quick toast. "I
couldn't agree more," he says back to her. "I love the thought
of tying Robertson Enterprises in with the gala. I just spoke to Trenyce
and Donovan, and the Robertson merchandize is selling extremely well."
Eva smiles back to him, thrilled with the news. "How are you feeling?"
he asks her, knowing that she is about to give a speech and step down
as the Chief of Staff. "Are you ready to step down as COS?"
She takes a sip of her champagne before she looks up at him again. "I
am," she says back to him. "I'm ready for a change of pace in
my life. I'm just so happy that this night turned out the way it did as
my swan song."
"And you are clearly the most beautiful woman in the room,"
he winks at her as he leans in and gives her a quick kiss.
"You are certainly the charmer," she smiles back to him as their
She suddenly notices that Dominick's demeanor changes. She looks over
her shoulder and sees Frederick and Felicia enter the ballroom. She looks
back at Dominick, who is watching their every move.
"Are you surprised that they came together?" she finally asks
Dominick continues to watch Frederick and Felicia. He recalls how a few
weeks earlier he saw Frederick kiss Felicia in the park, so he isn't surprised
that they showed up together. Still, there's something about Felicia's
doctor that he doesn't trust. He can't place it but there is something
about Frederick that doesn't sit well with him.
"No," he finally says back to Eva, as he fakes a smile on his
face. "Come on, let's get another glass of champagne. Eva sighs a
little though, she doesn't like that Dominick is still so concerned about
Donovan walks up to Craig, who is standing in the corner by some of the
balloons. He looks at his organizing partner in putting together the gala
and can't help but think that Craig looks really good in a tuxedo. He
shakes his head to himself because he knows that he can't be having any
sort of thoughts about Craig like that as he has a boyfriend. The last
thing Donovan wants to do is come between a relationship, he's not that
kind of guy.
"There you are," Donovan says to him, as he reaches Craig.
Craig looks at Donovan. "Did I go somewhere?"
Donovan smiles back to him. "I thought I was going to get to meet
your boyfriend," Donovan admits to him. "You know, this mystery
man. I'm beginning to think that he doesn't exist."
Craig laughs. "Trust me, he's real," he winks back to Donovan.
"Actually, he's right over there," Craig says as he points to
a man at the food table.
Donovan looks at the man and gasps. Lukas turns around with some food
on his plate and smiles at Craig. Donovan, however, immediately recognizes
"It can't be," Donovan whispers to himself, thinking about his
ex-lover from Europe. "Lukas?"
Craig looks at Donovan just as Lukas comes up to the two men. "Wait,
you two know each other?"
Lukas gets a sly grin on his face. "Donovan Moretti," he says.
"How long has it been, man?"
Donovan blushes, shocked that his ex is standing in front of him. He doesn't
know how this is happening; the ex that he loved so much is standing in
front of him, but also dating Craig. Instead of replying to Lukas, Donovan
quickly walks past him and leaves the ballroom flustered.
Lukas looks back at Craig and shrugs, as Craig arches his eyebrow wondering
what exactly just happened.
"I'm glad you wanted to come to the gala," Rebecca tells Cory
as they sip their champagne. "It's nice to get out of the house once
in a while and have some fun."
Cory smirks back to her. "Yea, it is," he says as he takes a
drink of his champagne. "Sometimes I feel guilty about it because
I know Robin is probably not having fun."
"Come on now," Rebecca tells him as she looks back at him. "You
have to know that Robin would want you to have a good time still. You
can't put your entire life on hold while Robin is getting better."
Cory nods back to her a little. "Yea, I suppose."
"Cory Calvin," she says in a stern voice as he looks at her.
"We are going to have a good time tonight, and that is an order."
Cory laughs back with her. "Okay, sorry," he says. "No
more pouting. Let's have a good time."
She smiles back to him. "That's what I'm talking about," she
winks as she grabs his hand and moves him to the dance floor.
Meggan and Jeff continue to hug each other. Meggan opens her eyes and
sees Vinny walking towards her, as they are near the bar. Vinny is clearly
walking to get another drink.
She exits the embrace and looks at Jeff. "Are you going to be okay?"
He looks down at her and nods his head with half a smile. "I will
be fine," he whispers back to her. "Thank you for being here
She puts her hand on his face and licks her lips a little. "It's
the least I can do Jeff," she says back to him.
She quickly glances over her shoulder and sees Vinny watching them. Without
thinking, she leans in and puts her lips on Jeff's.
Vinny opens his mouth in shock behind the couple kissing. Beside Vinny,
Robbie comes up and also witnesses the kiss and both are left speechless
at the sight of the kiss.
Jeff quickly pulls his lips off Meggan's. He looks back at her and gulps.
"I should go," he says to her, not sure how he feels about the
kiss. In his mind, it's too soon since Leah died to be kissing another
Meggan watches Jeff walk away from her. She then turns her head and sees
Vinny and Robbie watching her. She grabs her sparkling water and walks
away from them, not having to defend herself to anyone. Secretly, however,
she's thrilled that Vinny saw her kiss another man. "Maybe he will
realize what he's missing," she says to herself with a little chuckle.
"Ladies and gentlemen, can we have your attention," Eva says
into the microphone at the front of the ballroom. "Thank you all
so much for coming to the annual hospital gala. As you know, all of the
proceeds from tonight's events will be going to hospital's charity. We
are still planning to expand the hospital so we can better serve the community
in which we live in."
The audience members clap at Eva's announcement. She waits until the applause
calms down before she continues. "Tonight is also a special night
because tonight marks my last night as the Chief of Staff of Twin Peaks
General Hospital," she tells everyone. "I've had the most amazing
time being the leader of the hospital but the time has come for a change.
The new Chief of Staff is a long running member of the staff and he is
one of the best doctor's in the country. Ladies and gentlemen, the new
Chief of Staff Dr. Shane Glubbs!"
The audience claps as Shane walks up to the podium and hugs Eva. He takes
the microphone and looks out into the crowd of people. He scans the room,
hoping to see Natasha, but he doesn't see his wife. He gulps and realizes
that she's missing his big moment.
"Thank you," he finally says to everyone. "I don't really
have much to say other than, I'm looking forward to taking the hospital
to the next level and I'm looking forward of the challenge of being the
new Chief of Staff!"
Dawn walks down the hallway of the hospital as she is going back to the
ballroom so she can find Adam to take him to see Reg as per Helen's request.
She feels happy as she knows that Helen is doing the right thing by including
Adam in their family again. All she wants is for her family to stop fighting
and come together like they used too.
"This is the first step of us being a real family again," she
says to herself as she smiles.
As she walks by Shane's office, she hears a noise. She stops and looks
behind her, realizing that she is alone. She hears another noise and wonders
what it could be.
"What is that?" she asks herself as she moves closer to Shane's
office door. She puts her hear to the door and listens for a moment, realizing
the sounds are coming from inside.
She slowly opens the door and freezes in her tracks. On Shane's desk,
she sees Adam and Natasha having hot, passionate sex. Dawn gulps and quickly
shuts the door as a tear falls down her cheek, shocked at the sight of
her father being intimate with another woman; not just any other woman,
