Scene One - The Glubbs House; Shane, Natasha & Jacob's Home
Natasha looks around the living room trying to remember to grab everything
that she needs to put into Jacob's diaper bag before she has to take him
to the hospital for a check-up this morning. While she is thrilled that
her son is home from the hospital, she knows that Jacob can't afford to
miss any of his hospital visits; the doctors have to make sure that the
medication he is on is still working and his lungs are developing nicely
and helping prevent infections. Natasha never imagined having a premature
baby or the amount of work he would be, but she will do anything she can
to make sure that he is in the best health.
She looks back at the baby, who is sleeping already in his stroller and
smiles at the sight of him. "Oh Jacob," she says to herself.
"You will be just fine. Everything between your Daddy and I is slowly
getting back to normal. Nothing will stop us from being a happy family
now." She knows that things were tense between her and Shane for
months because of the Chief of Staff job, to the point where she slept
with Adam. The affair made her realize that Shane and her marriage are
so important to her; she hates that she betrayed him like that but that's
also why she's determined to keep it a secret from him.
She stands up from the sofa and feels herself become light headed for
a moment. Natasha quickly grounds herself and grabs a hold of the stroller
handle. She shakes her head and wonders why she's so dizzy.
"What's going on with me?" she asks herself, as she thinks back
to Christmas morning when she also felt a little dizzy. "I must just
be over doing it. I need to remember slow down."
She looks back behind her at the sofa and picks up the diaper bag and
places it on the back of the stroller, realizing that she has to get to
the hospital or she will be late.
"Okay Jacob," she whispers down to her son. "Let's get
you to the hospital then we can come home and relax."
Scene Two - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"I'm surprised that you're here," Helen says to Adam, as he
enters the waiting room of the hospital. She has come to the hospital
today to visit Reg, who recently woke up from his coma after he suffered
a stroke. Helen knows, however, that her father and Adam do not see eye
to eye, which is why she is surprised that Adam has arrived at the hospital.
The last thing she wants is for Adam and Reg to have a heated encounter
and thus possibly cause Reg to have a set back with his health. She wants
her family to start moving forward, if that's possible.
Adam moves into the waiting room and passes her a coffee from the Sugarbowl.
"I didn't want you to have to suffer from the coffee in the cafeteria,"
he tells her as he sits next to her. "I don't know how they get away
with serving that stuff."
Helen smirks a little at her husband. "Thank you, I appreciate this,"
she says before she takes a drink of the coffee. "Two cream, one
sugar, just the way I like it."
"I do know what you like, Helen," he tells her as he grabs her
free hand. "How is Reg doing?"
"He's awake and seemingly back to himself," she replies to him
quickly. "You didn't have to come here today."
"Yes, I did," Adam says back to her. "Your father and I
haven't gotten along but Helen, he is still your father. And I really
meant it when I said I want us to start being a team again. I want our
marriage to be as strong as it used to be and that means that I have to
get over myself and make a real effort with Reg. I'm going to try to make
amends with him."
Helen looks back at her husband and feels her heart warm. The words that
he just spoke to her are words that she never thought that she would hear.
All she has wanted was for her family to come together and be together.
The fact that Adam is willing to try to make that happen makes her very
"You're a wonderful husband, you know that?" she says as she
leans in and gives him a quick kiss on the lips.
"Well, you're an amazing woman. I am so lucky that you have stuck
with me for so many years," he says back to her as their lips part
as he tries to force the guilt of sleeping with Natasha out of his mind.
He doesn't know why is suddenly creeps into his mind but he wishes it
Dawn comes into the waiting room and watches her parents for a moment.
She should be happy that her parents are still close after so many years
but seeing them together like this actually makes her sick to her stomach.
She can't help but think about seeing Adam having sex with Natasha the
night of the hospital gala; since that night, Dawn's entire life has been
turned upside down. She can't stand the fact that her father is lying
to everyone, especially Helen. Dawn feels like her entire life has been
turned into a lie and it's all Adam and Natasha's fault.
"Oh Dawn, I didn't see you standing there," Adam announces to
his daughter, causing her to snap out of her train of thought. "What
are you doing here?"
"I have a candy striper shift," she quickly says back. "Mom,
you should get to Grandpa's room right away."
Helen arches her eyebrow as she stands up. "Why? What's going on?"
Dawn shakes her head. "I was walking by and I heard him shouting.
I think he and Grandma are having a disagreement."
Helen looks at Adam, both knowing that Reg is stubborn and is probably
laying into Barbara over something small and meaningless. "Let's
go," Helen says to Adam as they walk out of the waiting room and
towards Reg's hospital room, not wanting him to over extend himself.
Scene Three - The Pampa Grill
"So, you have to go to the hospital after breakfast?" Lukas
asks Craig as they sit across from each other at the restaurant having
breakfast together. Lukas keeps moving his eyes around to make sure that
his father doesn't come into the restaurant and spot him having a meal
with Craig, although he already knows his cover story if Frederick does
happen to spot them. A part of him hates that he has to be so secretive
but he isn't ready to tell Frederick that he's gay; in fact, he may never
be ready, he realizes.
Craig puts his orange juice down and looks over at his lover with a sly
grin on his face. "I do," he says back to him. "I wish
I didn't. I'd love to go home and spend the day in bed with you."
Lukas winks back at him. "That sounds amazing but keep your voice
if anyone heard you
Craig laughs a little. "Relax Lukas," he says back to him. "I'm
not about to out you to your family. But I'm also not going to keep my
thoughts to myself. You're sexy and we just had a great time together
over the holidays
it'd be nice to keep that going."
"It was nice," Lukas agrees with him as he thinks back to their
New Year's Eve with champagne and each other's company. "I think
we really got to know each other on another level."
Craig nods back to him knowing that their relationship is still pretty
new, so getting to know each other is always a good thing. Craig also
knows, though, that Lukas is also thinking about his past with Donovan.
He doesn't know everything that went down between the two ex's but he
can tell that their romance was intense. Both Lukas and Donovan have made
reference to their relationship while they were in Europe and when Craig
asked Lukas about their past, he went silent, not saying anything. He
is positive that seeing Donovan again rattled Lukas, which isn't easy
"Where did you just go?" Lukas says back to Craig, causing the
doctor to come back to his boyfriend in front of him. "You looked
a million miles away."
Craig smirks back to Lukas. "I guess I was just thinking."
"You and Donovan," Craig admits to him. "When I asked you
about your relationship with him on New Year's Eve, you got quiet and
didn't say anything. You know, one day, I'd like to know what went down
between the two of you."
Lukas puts a piece of bacon in his mouth and quickly chews it before he
picks up his coffee and takes a drink of it. The last thing he wants to
do is about his past relationship with Donovan.
"You're not going to say anything at all?" Craig asks him back,
realizing that his lover is ignoring him.
Lukas shrugs back to his lover. "There's nothing to tell. We dated,
we broke up and we've moved on. End of story," he quickly lies to
Craig. "Look at the time, I really should be going."
Craig is left dumbfounded as Lukas stands up and walks away from the table.
Craig picks up his orange juice, left thinking that Lukas and Donovan's
relationship was far more intense than anyone is letting on, since he
was the one on the time crunch this morning; Lukas had nothing else to
do, he just didn't want to open up to Craig.
Chris opens the door to the restaurant and moves inside quickly as the
bitter cold winter air nips at him. He is grateful to be inside; he's
always hated the cold in the winter's, especially in Twin Peaks where
it can get really chilly. He looks around for Bob, as he is supposed to
have a breakfast meeting with him today. He doesn't spot his boss, but
he does see Savannah sitting at the bar with a coffee and a muffin in
front of her. He looks at the woman that was thin close to being his wife
until Frederick exposed his plan that he was using Savannah to try to
Andrew back. He hates that he hurt her because, if he's honest with himself,
he actually was starting to care for Savannah. He hasn't wanted to admit
that to anyone but Chris would have stayed married to Savannah and tried
to be a good husband to her. He regrets hurting her but has no one to
blame but himself.
He finds himself moving towards her, bracing himself for her chilly response.
The last time he saw her, at the church at their interrupted wedding,
she was livid with him; Not that he can really blame her. He can still
feel her slap across his cheek.
"Good morning," he says as he reaches the bar, trying to be
Savannah looks back at Chris and feels her blood boil at the sight of
her ex-fiancé. She still can't believe that she was such a fool
for believing that Chris loved her. She was completely taken in by him
and played badly. "It was good until you showed up."
"I suppose I deserve that," he says back to her. "I know
that you're upset with me
"Upset with you?" She asks him back as she starts to laugh a
little. "That's probably the understatement of the year. I can't
stand the sight of you Chris! You used me to try to get my son away from
me. How the hell do you think I should feel about you?"
Chris sighs and looks back at her, his heart breaking inside his chest
for the pain he has clearly caused her. "It may have started that
way Savannah," he continues to remain calm to her. "I mean,
using you to try to get Andrew back. But you know what? Somewhere along
the way something happened."
"What are you talking about?" she asks him, still being cold
"You happened," he says moving closer to her. "You showed
me the real you and I fell in love with you. Every time I said those words
to you, I meant it. I never lied to you about my feelings. I know that
you are angry with me right now and you have every right to be but I'm
hoping that one day you can forgive me and we can try to put this back
Savannah breaks out in laughter again after Chris is done speaking to
her. "You can't be serious? Wait, you are? Oh Chris," Savannah
says as her laughter stops. "Let me tell you something, I will never
forgive you for what you did to me. Now, get out of my face so I can finish
my breakfast in peace. And the next time you see me, don't stop and say
hi; just keep walking and leave me alone."
" he starts to say back to her but she puts her
hand up. "Sorry I bothered you."
He slowly moves back away from Savannah but he looks at her for a moment
longer before he turns around and walks away from her. He just hopes that
one day she will be able to forgive him.
"Thank you so much for taking me out for breakfast," Felicia
smiles to Tyler, taking her eyes off a sleeping Blake for a moment before
she looks back at her sleeping grandson. "He's the most precious
little thing in the world."
Tyler can't help but smile seeing his mother interact with his son. He
wishes that he had been able to have Blake with his family more over the
holidays but he also understands why Kim wanted him close to her. He hopes
that the fact that he and Kim spent so much time together during the holidays
that it means that they could potentially get back together. Tyler would
like nothing more than to give his son a real family with Kim. If only
he can convince her that them together is what's best; she still thinks
reuniting with Bob is in the cards. He doesn't want Blake to be near Bob,
however. The man has caused his family, including his mother, too much
pain to be in Blake's life.
"He is pretty awesome," Tyler says back to his mom. "I'm
sorry it's taken so long for us to have some real time together."
Felicia moves some of her hair behind her ear as she moves the blanket
closer to Blake's sleeping face. "Don't be silly," she says
as she looks over at her son. "Any time with you and this baby is
precious. I am a mother, I understand why Kim wanted Blake at home for
"I spent a lot of time with Kim and Blake during the holidays which
was nice," Tyler informs her.
Felicia takes a sip of her coffee. "I remember you left Christmas
day early to go be with Blake and Kim," Felicia says to him. "I
take it things are going well between you and her?"
Tyler puts his orange juice down on the table and looks over at his son
for a moment. "Yea, things are going really well. I mean, having
a child with someone is bound to bring two people closer together, don't
Felicia nods back to him. "Yes, your father and I have always stayed
close because of our children," she says back to him. "I just
hope Kim isn't playing games with you."
"There are no games Mom," Tyler replies to her. "She tells
me that she wants to work things out with her husband
"But?" Felicia interrupts his sentence.
"But," Tyler says back to her with a sly grin on his face. "I'm
still going to do anything and everything in my power to make my family
a reality. I would love to be a family with Blake and Kim. I think I owe
that to my son."
Felicia reaches over and grabs Tyler's hand. "You know that you have
my full support, don't you my son?"
Tyler nods back to her. "Thanks Mom, I'm glad that you have my back."
"Always," she says to him. "And you're right, you have
to do anything you can to make sure that you precious baby has the best
Scene Four - The Calimo Mansion
"Rosario told me that you were in here," Bob announces to Kim,
as she stands by the roaring fire in the living room of the Calimo mansion.
He stops and looks at his wife for a moment; while he wouldn't admit this
to her, he does miss having her around the house. After Sofia died, the
mansion was so very quiet and empty; after Kim moved in, that all changed.
She brought a new life and energy into the house. With her living in the
guest house, the mansion has returned to being silent; too silent. "What's
going on Kimberly?"
Kim turns around and looks at Bob, who tries to make it appear that he
is busy looking for another file in the corner of the room where there
is a desk. She hopes that she can try to build the gap that is between
them right now.
"I wanted to see how your holidays were," she says to him as
she moves closer to him. "I didn't get to see you as much as I would
have liked. The joys of having a new born, they take up a lot of your
"The holidays were just fine," Bob quickly replies to her, still
looking at some papers in a file folder by the desk. His mind quickly
goes back to Christmas Day, however, when he went down to the guest house
to see Kim and he saw her having a good time with Blake and Tyler. The
images of the three of them together have been embedded into his brain;
he wishes he hadn't see them at all. "They came and went as they
"Bob," Kim says back to him as she approaches him. She reaches
out and puts her hand on his forearm. "Can you please talk? I mean,
put the file down and let's really talk."
Bob looks at her and then slowly puts the file down on the desk. He turns
back to her and looks her in the eyes. "And what would you like to
talk about, exactly, Kimberly? How you cheated on me with Dominick's son?
How you had his bastard child? Do you really want to bring all of that
Kim shakes her head back to him. "No, I don't want to talk about
that," she says slowly, trying to stay calm with her husband.
"What else is there to talk about?"
"How about how much I love you?" she says back to him with a
little smile on her face. "And how much I know you still love me.
If we can just get past all of this nonsense and get back to loving each
Bob looks back at her as she moves even closer to him. He licks his lips
a little as she continues to lean into him. "We were so good together
and we can be again," she whispers as she shuts her eyes and leans
in to give him a kiss.
He suddenly grabs her arms and moves her back from him. "If you think
you can come in here and kiss me and we can just go back to how things
once were, you're sadly mistaken Kimberly," he grits his teeth back
to her. "I don't know if I will ever be able to get over the fact
that you have a child with Dominick Robertson's son. But until then, we
can't get past anything."
Kim nods back to him. "I hope that when you're ready to move on Bob,
I'm still waiting for you," she whispers back to him as a tear runs
down her cheek. "I can't take rejection forever."
"You slept with another man!"
"I'm sorry," she says as she rushes over to the sofa and grabs
her purse. "I won't give up on you Bob. You mean too much to me and
I know that somewhere, despite all of this hurt, you still love me too."
Bob watches as Kim leaves the room. He sighs after she is gone and runs
his hands over his face because he knows that she is right; he does still
love her, but how can he get over the pain that she has caused him?
Scene Five - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Adam and Helen rush down the hallway as they can hear Reg's loud voice
getting louder and louder as the approach his hospital room door. Helen
looks at Adam wondering what is going on before he opens the door and
walks into the room. They see Barbara crying up against the wall, as Reg
lays in the hospital bed, his face beat red. On the floor is part of Reg's
meal, which he clearly threw on the ground.
"What the hell is going on in here? We could hear you half way down
the hallway?" Adam asks Reg, as Helen moves over to Babrara. Adam
doesn't mean to have the volume in his voice that he does.
"There was just a misunderstanding," Barbara says in between
some tears, trying to compose herself after her fight with her husband.
"I'm sorry if we caused any sort of disruption."
Adam looks back at Reg. "Do you have anything to say for yourself?
Your wife is in tears, your food is on the floor ... what's gotten into
"Don't you dare read me the riot act!" Reg starts to raise his
voice back to Adam, ready for a fight with his son in law. Reg doesn't
want to Adam to tell him how to live his life.
"Don't raise your voice," Adam warns him. "You're in a
hospital, you're not the only person here recovering. You need to stay
"Then get out of my room! Get out! I don't want to see you in here
again!" Reg points his finger at Adam. He looks over at Helen and
Barbara, "Get this punk out of here! I can't stand him and his arrogant
"Come on Adam, you should probably get out of here," Helen says
coming up to her husband and pulling him out of the hospital room, growing
more upset with the conflict between her husband and her father.
Barbara looks back at her husband and shakes her head, wishing that he
could control his temper. "Don't you start with me Barbara,"
he warns his wife, sensing that she is about to say something to him.
Outside the hospital room, Helen looks at Adam. "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine," he says back to her quickly. "I'm sorry, this
isn't exactly how I wanted to make amends with your father."
Helen shrugs. "It's fine, I'm beginning to think you've been right
all along. Reg isn't exactly the most stand up man out there, huh?"
Adam hugs her. "But he is your father."
"I know," she says back to him. "But it doesn't make his
behaviour acceptable. What are we going to do with him?"
Natasha sits in a chair in a hospital room as she waits for Jacob's doctor
to arrive. She is holding baby Jacob in her arms as he is now awake from
his nap and playing with him a little.
"Soon the doctor will be here and we will make sure that everything
is perfect with you, won't we little guy?" she smiles to him as she
keeps bouncing him on her knee. "Trust me baby, you will be just
The door to the room opens and Dawn walks into the room slowly. She immediately
rolls her eyes when she sees that she has to help Natasha and Jacob as
part of her candy striper position. She doesn't have anything against
Jacob, obviously, but she hates Natasha for sleeping with her father.
"Oh Dawn!" Natasha says with a smile on her face, oblivious
to Dawn's feelings for her. "Are you going to help the doctor with
Jacob's check-up? This is wonderful, I had forgotten that you're a candy
"Obviously you forget a lot of things about your husband," Dawn
snaps back to her, knowing that Shane got her the job at the hospital
but quickly realizing that she has to be civil. She doesn't want anyone
to know what she saw the night of the hospital gala.
"What's that supposed to mean?" Natasha asks her back, confused
by her comment.
"Never mind, can you lay the baby down on the bed, I have to administer
his medication before the doctors arrive," Dawn informs her as she
reads the baby's file.
Dawn can hear Natasha start talking to her about something minor like
the weather. Dawn moves over to the counter in the room and opens a drawer.
She finds a syringe that she is supposed to use to give Jacob his medication.
She looks over her shoulder and sees Natasha's back to her, still rambling
on. That's when it happens, Dawn gets a sly grin on her face. She takes
the seal off the needle but doesn't fill it with any medication.
"Okay, all ready," she smiles as she moves over to the baby.
"Do you mind giving me a little space? I'm still new at this."
"Oh, yes, of course," Natasha replies as she moves away from
Dawn doesn't give the child any medication. She waits a moment longer
before she turns with a smile on her face. "There, all done,"
she smiles back to Natasha.
"Thank you Dawn, that was pretty fast. You may be new but you're
sure getting the hang of this," Natasha says back to her as Dawn
drops the needle in the garbage can.
Dawn picks up the file and looks back at Natasha, who is now holding her
baby. "The doctor shouldn't be too much longer Natasha. Have a nice
"Thanks Dawn, you too. And thank you again for taking such good care
of Jacob," Natasha says back to her as Dawn leaves the hospital room.
Outside the room, Dawn takes a deep breath as she tries to calm her racing
heart. She doesn't want to hurt Jacob. "But Natasha needs to be taught
a lesson," she whispers to herself before she moves away from the
door. "And, I will teach her a lesson."
