Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Kim stands up by her hospital bed as she finishes packing her overnight bag because she was discharged this morning from the hospital. She quickly looks over at her baby, who is sleeping in the crib and she smiles, although she wonders where she should go now that she has been released. She has been living at the Calimo mansion with Bob but now that the truth is out; Bob secretly had a vasectomy meaning that Tyler is really the father of her son so he knows all about her affair, she doesn't know if she's welcome back in the mansion, but she will try. She has to try to make her marriage work, nothing else matters to her right now.

"Knock, knock," a voice says at the door as it opens. Kim turns around and sees Tyler standing in the hospital room. "I had heard that you were getting discharged today."

"Yea, we are going home," Kim says quietly back to her former lover. "I'm actually glad that you're here."

Tyler gets a sparkle in his eye at the sound of Kim saying she's glad he's there. "Do you want me to take you home?" he asks her, thinking that they could be growing closer here.

"No, no, I'll be fine," Kim says as she turns to face him. "But before we go home, we do have to name our son."

Tyler moves over to the crib and looks down at the sleeping child. He looks back at Kim with a grin on his face. "You're right, it's time we give this little guy a name," he chuckles a little. "I still can't believe we have a child together Kim. He's amazing."

"He is really special," Kim replies to him. "Do you have any ideas for names?"

"I suppose we can look in one of those baby name books or something," he suggests to her as she comes up to him and looks down at the baby.

"I really want something strong and refined at the same time," Kim tells him. "Because he is so strong and beautiful."

"It sounds like you have an idea," he replies to her as he looks at her.

"What about Blake?" she asks him as they look at each other. "And Andrew for a middle name, after my brother Andy."

"Blake Andrew," Tyler says slowly back to her. "I like the sound of that."

Kim smiles to him. "It looks like we have a name, Blake Andrew Robertson."

"Robertson?" he asks in surprise. "You want Blake to have my last name?"

Kim looks over at her former lover and gets a slight grin on her face as she can tell how much the news means to Tyler. "Of course I do," she says back to him. "You are his father, Tyler."

Tyler grabs her hand and squeezes it. "Are you sure you don't need me to help you two get home?"

Kim shakes her head. "I'm going to the mansion Tyler," she reveals to him. "I don't think Bob would be happy to see you given everything that has happened."

Tyler sighs a little knowing that he's not happy that Kim and Blake will be going back to the mansion but he isn't sure what options he has right now.

"Okay," he tells her. "But we'll be in touch soon Kim. I want to be in Blake's life and I don't back down from that."

Scene Two - The Park

A light snow fall comes down on the November day as Donovan walks through the park holding a hot chocolate from the Sugarbowl. His mind is racing about what happened at the hospital gala when he finally got to meet Craig's new boyfriend and the guy is Lukas, his ex from years ago in Europe. Lukas being in Twin Peaks is a hard pill for Donovan to swallow as he knows that he has always struggled to get over Lukas and their romance. The fact that Lukas is back in town and dating Craig, who Donovan had been flirting with, is just mind boggling to him.

He walks and freezes when he sees Lukas moving towards him on the pathway. Donovan quickly wonders if he should turn around and walk away from his ex, like he did at the hospital gala. He shakes his head and realizes that he has to deal with this sooner rather than later. He can't keep running from his past.

"What are the odds of this? We didn't run into each other for months and now twice in a couple of days," Lukas says with a sly grin on his face as he reaches Donovan. "How are you doing? It is good to see you."

Donovan looks at him and feels his heart melt a little. Despite not seeing Lukas for so many years, he can't help but still be attracted to his ex-lover. "If I'm honest Lukas, I'm shocked that you're in Twin Peaks. It's been years since we've seen each other and now suddenly you're here. I hadn't heard from you in so long and now, here you are."

"I didn't know you were here Donovan," Lukas admits to him as they start to walk and move to the gazebo, to get out of the falling snow. "I read in the papers about you being on death row a couple of years ago but I didn't think you were still living here."

"How long have you been in town?" Donovan asks him as he takes a drink of his hot chocolate.

"Since the summer," Lukas replies to him. "My sister Meggan and my Dad are here. I was tired of living alone in Europe so I came home."

"And you're dating Craig Benton," Donovan smirks at him, thinking of the irony of the situation.

Lukas looks back at him and wonders what his ex is thinking. "Craig is a nice guy, so yea, we are seeing how things go."

Donovan nods his head back. "Seeing how things go, huh? That's an interesting way to say you want to have sex," he laughs back with him.

"Are you jealous?" Lukas winks at him.

Donovan gulps and feels his cheeks turn red at the question. "Does your father know that you're gay yet? Have you finally come out?"

Lukas looks over at him and before he can reply, Craig comes up to the gazebo and takes his headphones out of his ears as he's on a job. "What's going on here?" he asks as he comes up to his boyfriend and Donovan. "I thought something was off at the gala when you ran off Donovan and now I'm sure that something is up with you two. So, whose going to tell me what's up?"

Scene Three - The Sugarbowl

"I wish I knew why you were so against the idea of Meggan talking to Andy about his drinking," Daisy tells Vinny as they sit across from each other in the coffeehouse, each having a coffee and a muffin for breakfast. Daisy recalls how she told Vinny that she wanted his ex-wife to talk to Andy about his increasingly heavy drinking in the wake of Reese's death. While Vinny didn't give a good reason, she knows that something must be troubling Vinny for him to say no to the idea. "I know that I haven't always seen eye to eye with you about Meggan but if she agreed to help us, I think it would be a good way to start mending fences."

Vinny sighs and takes a bite of his muffin as he recalls seeing Meggan kiss Jeff at the hospital gala. He knows that Meggan is a free agent and can do anything but he doesn't know if Meggan kissing Jeff, who is still grieving Leah, is the best idea. He doesn't know why it bugs him but it really does.

"Earth to Vinny!" Daisy smirks as she waves her hand in front her fiancé's face. "Where are you right now?"

"Sorry," Vinny says back to her. "I guess I was just thinking."

"Yea? About what? What is it about the Meggan helping Andy that has you so put off?"

Vinny sighs back to her and he knows that he should tell her what's troubling him. "I can't keep anything from you, can I?" he says with a small smile on his face. "I am upset about something."

"Go on," Daisy says to him.

"It was at the hospital gala," he reveals to her. "I saw Meggan kiss Jeff."

Daisy's eyes open in shock. "Jeff Claus? Does she realize the man just lost his wife?"

"I know," Vinny replies to her. "There's just something about it that I'm not okay with. I don't know what it is but …"

Daisy looks at Vinny and suddenly wonders if her fiancé is jealous.

"I just think that this kiss makes me not want to ask Meggan for help right now," he tells Daisy, who nods back to him, although she can't help but wonder if there's more to his feelings.

Scene Four - Chris' Townhouse

"Did you drop Andrew off at daycare?" Chris asks Savannah as he passes her a cup of coffee. When she takes the cup, he can't help but notice the diamond ring he gave her the night of the hospital gala when he proposed to Savannah.

"I did," she replies to him as she takes a sip of her coffee. "I don't have to be at the office for a couple of hours."

"Well, that's good because I don't have to be at the office for a couple of hours myself," Chris replies to her as he sits next to her.

She smiles and leans in and kisses her new fiancé. When their lips part, she looks at him. "I wonder what ever we could do for a couple of hours to pass the time," she winks at him, kissing him again.

Chris smiles as their lips part. "I like the way you think," he says back to her. "But I'd like to talk to you about something."

Savannah arches his eyebrow and looks back at him. "I'm listening," she says, thinking that something could be off with Chris.

"I know we just got engaged," he says back to her. "And I'm so happy that you said yes when I asked you to marry me."

"I'm happy with you and in love with you, of course I said yes," Savannah replies to him.

"I don't want to wait to get married," he reveals to her. "I think we should get married sooner rather than later."

The news surprises Savannah and she stands up from the sofa, moving a piece of hair behind her ear. "You want to get married soon? There's so much planning to do."

Chris stands up and moves towards her and grabs Savannah's hands. "It doesn't matter about the details," he says back to her. "All that matters is that you become my wife. I know it's sudden but I just keep thinking about Reese," he says to her, knowing that if he mentions Savannah's best friend that it will pull at her heart strings. "And he would want us to live for today. That's why I want to marry you quickly."

Savannah looks back at him with water in her eyes. "Okay," she smiles through some tears. "Let's get married!"

Scene Five - Robertson Enterprises; Trenyce's Office

Trenyce looks at some of the numbers that have come in from the hospital gala that Robertson Enterprises was a part of. In particular, she's thrilled that her clothing designs did so well at the gala.

"These numbers are so great," she says to herself as she thinks about how pleased Dominick is. "I can't wait to tell Dominick, he'll be so pleased."

"Talking to yourself?" Frederick asks as he opens the door to Trenyce's office. Frederick, as he moves into the office, recalls how he saw the designer talking to Chris the other day at the coffeehouse. This isn't the first time Frederick has seen the two in an intense conversation and he knows that he can't place what exactly is going on, but if Trenyce and Chris are up to something, he has to find out to ensure Savannah is not hurt by this.

Trenyce turns and sees the doctor coming in to her office. "Dr. Richardson? This is certainly a surprise," she says as she wonders why he's visiting her. "Is there something I can help you with?"

Frederick gives her half a grin and looks at her as he moves to the front of her desk. "There is actually, yes. I came here with a purpose today."

Trenyce arches her eyebrow. "I'm listening," she says back to him. "What's going on?"

Frederick knows very well that Trenyce won't reveal exactly what is going on with her and Chris so he will try to get the truth out of her in another way. "You know that I've become close with Savannah Pherson, don't you?" he asks her as she looks back at him. "I care very much for that young woman and I won't allow her to be hurt."

"That's nice of you. We all need to have people like that in our lives," Trenyce replies to him.

"I agree," Frederick says back to her. "The thing is Ms. Davenport," Frederick continues as he leans over his desk. "You and Chris Michaels seem to have a lot of conversations in public places like the Sugarbowl." Trenyce suddenly feels herself gulp. "I know exactly what you're up too and I won't let you get away with this."

Trenyce shakes head at him. "I think you should leave my office now Dr. Richardson," she tells him, trying to keep her composure although she feels like her world is spinning now.

Frederick smiles down at her. "Just remember what I said, I won't let you get away with this."

Once he is out of the office, Trenyce covers her face with her hands. She moves them and looks forward, scared that Frederick is on to her and Chris and their plan to use Savannah to get Andrew back. "I have to warn Chris," she whispers to herself, knowing that her worst fears could be coming true about the plan leaving many people hurt.

Scene Six - The Park, The Gazebo

"Is someone going to tell me what's going on?" Craig asks Lukas and Donovan again, as he looks at his boyfriend and then over at Donovan.

Donovan looks back at Craig. "I'm sure you're wondering why I ran off at the hospital gala and now Lukas and I are talking today," he finally says, as Lukas seems tongue tied at the moment.

"I am, yea," Craig nods back to him.

"You see, Lukas and I actually know each other," Donovan reveals to Craig, whose eyes open wider in surprise.

"You two know each other? I guess that doesn't surprise me too much," Craig says back to them. "I mean, Twin Peaks is a rather small town."

Lukas shakes his head. "No, we know each other from another time and place."

"We dated Craig," Donovan tells him. "When we lived in Europe, we were together for a number of years."

Craig nods back to him, shocked by what he is hearing from Donovan and Lukas. "I see," the doctor finally says. "And this is what? Some kind of reunion?"

"We were just catching up," Donovan says to him. "That's why I ran off at the hospital gala because I was just so shocked to see Lukas again after all these years."

Lukas looks at Craig. "Yea, but you know, we caught up and now we can carry on with our day. Donovan, it was nice seeing you again," Lukas says looking back at his ex. "Come on Craig, we can go for lunch today."

Craig looks at Donovan, trying to get a read on him but Donovan just puts a smile on his face and watches as Craig leaves with Lukas. Once the couple has left, Donovan sighs and wonders what will happen now that his ex is back in his life.

Scene Seven - Robertson Enterprises

"Blake Andrew," Dominick smiles as Tyler has revealed the name he and Kim have given the baby. "When will I get to meet my Grandson?"

Tyler looks back at his father and wonders the same thing. He knows that Kim is going back to the Calimo mansion, a decision that he wishes Kim hadn't made but he doesn't have another choice in accepting it.

"Kim was discharged today," Tyler reveals to his father. "I told her that I won't be away from my son for too long, so the next time I see him, you'll get to meet him."

Dominick arches his eyebrow. "She was discharged today, you said?" he asks him, as Tyler nods his head back to his father. "And where was she going? Surely, Bob won't let her back into the mansion. Not after her affair with you," Dominick continues to tell him.

Tyler sighs and sits down in a chair across from his father's desk. "I don't know Dad," he admits to him. "Kim seemed pretty sure that she was going back to the mansion. I offered to take her somewhere and she said no. I have my phone on in case she does need me for something."

"You really care for her, don't you?" Dominick asks him.

Tyler nods back to him. "It didn't start out that way, but I have grown to have very strong feelings for Kim, yes."

Dominick looks back at him and nods. "But she has your son living in the Calimo mansion."

"I know, I just don't know what else to do right now Dad," Tyler admits to him. "But I will tell you this much, if Kim or Bob think that they will keep Blake from me, they have another thing coming. I will be a part of my son's life."

Scene Eight - The Calimo Mansion

"Thank you Rosario," Kim smiles to the housekeeper, who has opened the front door for Kim and Blake as the come into the Calimo mansion. "If you could get the rest of the bags from the car, that would be so helpful."

"Yes, of course, Mrs. Calimo," Rosario says back to the new mother. "And your baby, he's very cute. Congratulations."

"Thank you Rosario," Kim gushes as she moves into the living room with Blake. As soon as Kim enters the living room, she sees Bob sitting on the sofa with a brandy in his hand.

"Kimberly," Bob says as he stands up and looks at his wife, holding her baby. "You and the baby are out of the hospital?"

"Yea, we got discharged today," Kim announces to her husband as she moves and lays the sleeping child down in a playpen that is in a corner of the room. "I know you don't want me in the house Bob. I know that."

"You're right," he says back to his wife. "After everything that has happened, you can't be surprised."

"I'm not," she replies to him. "I've asked Rosario to move my things to the guest house, if that's okay. I just want some where to stay until Blake and I get on our feet."

Bob takes a sip of his brandy. "I suppose that's fine," he says back to her. "For the time being, anyways."

"Thank you for that," she says as she comes up to him. She puts her hand on his forearm. "I know what I've done is unforgiveable but I am hoping that we can try to put this behind us."

"I don't think that will happen anytime soon Kimberly," he quickly says as he moves away, so she isn't touching him anymore.

Kim moves a piece of hair behind her ear. "Okay, I won't push," he admits to him. "But there is something that I need your help with Bob."

Bob turns and faces his wife, wondering what she could possibly need help with. "What is it?"

"It's my brother," she admits to him.


"He's not taking Reese's death very well," she tells him. "He's drinking a lot more than what he should, you know that, you saw him at the hospital the day Blake was born."

"He was intoxicated when he was there," Bob recalls to her.

"I don't know what I'm going to do yet but I do want to know that I have your support," Kim asks of him.

"Of course," Bob says looking into her eyes. "Anything you need to help Andy, I will support that. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a conference call. I have to go to my study."

Kim watches her husband leave the living room. She puts her hand on her chest and hopes that this is the start of Bob and her putting their marriage back together. She knows it will be a long road back to that, but he was civil today and he agreed to help with Andy.

"That's a good start," she smiles to herself. "A very good start."
