Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Natasha and Shane sit in a small hospital room watching Jacob sleep in
an incubator. The worry on their faces says it all in terms of how they
are feeling. Just a few short hours ago, they were at home talking about
their day events with each other. Shane then noticed that Jacob was turning
blue and they rushed him to the hospital, in fear that something was wrong
with his lungs. Thankfully, they got him to the hospital before anything
serious was happening to him. They have got word that he needed another
dose of his medication, which he has since received. While Natasha hasn't
said anything, she wonders why Jacob needed more medication when he had
his check-up earlier in the day and Dawn gave him a dosage. She looks
at Jacob and is pleased to see that his colour has returned to normal.
"Thank God he is going to be okay," Natasha finally says to
her husband, her voice still a little shaky. "I don't know what I
would have done if something had happened to him."
Shane looks over at his wife and grabs her hand. "I know," he
agrees with her. "I wish I understood exactly what happened. I mean,
he got his checkup today, right? I don't understand why he required more
medication so soon after his checkup with the doctor."
Natasha shakes her head. "I'm not sure. I guess we just have to keep
even more of a watchful eye on Jacob now. I don't want anything like this
to happen again."
"Maybe we should hire a nanny or a nurse, you know someone to look
after him around the clock," he suggests to her. "I agree with
you, something like this can't happen again. We have to make sure of it."
"I will get my father to look into nanny services, I know he and
Sofia had lots of help when Robbie and I were younger," Natasha informs
him, liking his idea.
Before Shane can reply, Craig opens the door to the room and looks at
the couple. "Sorry for the long wait," he says as he walks up
to the couple. "We've been monitoring Jacob's status and we believe
he's ready to go home. I have the discharge papers here."
"What happened, exactly?" Natasha asks the doctor. "I was
at the hospital earlier today for his checkup. I was in the room when
he got his medication, how did this happen?"
Craig shakes his head. "Honestly, I'm not sure. Sometimes when lungs
are developing, the medication dose isn't large enough. I've put in his
file that he should receive a slightly large amount in his regular checkups
going forward. I hope that it will prevent this from happening again."
"Thank you Craig," Shane replies to him as he stands up and
shakes the doctor's hand.
"You're welcome," Craig says back to them. "You guys take
care and come back anytime you think something is off with Jacob."
Shane looks back at Natasha as Craig exits the room. "How about I
take Jacob home and you head over to the Sugarbowl to get some coffee.
I'd like to look into nanny or nursing services this evening if possible."
Natasha nods back to him and moves up to him to give him a quick kiss.
"That sounds like a good idea. See you at home," she says before
she moves over to Jacob and kisses him on his forehead before she collects
her purse to head to the coffeehouse.
Scene Two - The Calimo Mansion; The Guesthouse, Kim's Home
"I came here straight from Andy's condo," Donovan tells Kim
as he moves into her house and into the living room area of the open concept
main space of the guesthouse that is on the grounds of the Calimo mansion.
Donovan recalls how he went to see Andy to try to convince him to stop
drinking; when he got there, Andy was drunk and his apartment was a mess.
Donovan attempted to take control of the situation by dumping a half empty
bottle of whiskey down the drain. This, of course, make Andy livid and
he threw Donovan out of the apartment.
Kim closes the door and moves over to Donovan. "What's going on with
my brother?" she asks him, having not heard from Andy since Christmas.
"Is he okay?"
Donovan turns and faces Kim with worry on his face. "I don't know,"
he admits to her. "You know that he's been drinking a lot more since
Kim nods back to him. "I know that and actually, Daisy Davenport
told me that she's worried about his drinking levels as well. I thought
that maybe she was over reacting a little because Andy wasn't drinking
here at Christmas time."
"I was with him on New Year's Eve," Donovan reveals to Kim.
"And, he was wasted."
Kim suddenly gets a look of concern on her face. "And tonight? How
was my brother when you saw him now?"
Donovan sighs before responding to her. "He could barely stand up
Kim," he informs her. "He was slurring his words and
"And what? What else could there be?" a horrified Kim asks him.
"I tried to get through to him and make him realize that drinking
isn't the answer," Donovan explains to her.
"How did you do that? What did you do, Donovan?" Kim asks him,
worried about what Andy is going through now.
"I took his opened bottle of whiskey and I dumped it down the sink,"
Donovan tells her as he recalls how Andy reacted following his decision.
"He wasn't happy with me at all. He threw me out of his condo and
basically his life."
"Oh Donovan," Kim replies to him as she hugs him. "Thank
you for telling me this, I know it couldn't have been easy for you."
"I'm just tired of seeing him like this, you know?" he says
back to her. "We have to do something before it's too late."
"I agree," Kim replies to him as they exit their embrace. "Leave
this with me, I'll see what I can do."
Scene Three - The Pampa Grill
At a table in the restaurant, Daisy sits with a glass of red wine and
her IPad open to a number of different pages. She has a pad of paper next
to her and she is jotting ideas down for her pending wedding to Vinny.
She decided to plan some of her wedding at the restaurant this evening
to get out of the house as Vinny is at a late meeting. The mansion is
too quiet when she is there alone.
"Well isn't this a nice sight," Vinny announces to her as he
approaches her table, having wrapped up his meeting.
Daisy looks up and gets a slight grin on her face at the sight of her
fiancé. "Hi, you," she says as he pulls out a chair and
joins her. "How was the meeting?"
Vinny sighs and looks over at her. "It was fine but I really don't
want to talk about work. It's late and been a long day. What are you working
on over there?"
"Our wedding," she smiles back to him as she reaches over and
grabs his hand. "I want it to be perfect, you know."
He chuckles a little. "I have no doubt that it will be with you planning
"The problem is that I have so many ideas," she admits to him.
"I have no idea which ideas are good ones or which direction I'd
like to go in."
"There's no rush baby," Vinny tells her as he takes a sip of
the wine that he poured himself. "Why don't we start with something
like the guest list? I don't have any family left
to invite, but do you have any other than Trenyce that you'd like to invite?"
Daisy sighs and thinks for a moment. She and Vinny haven't really spoke
a lot about Daisy's past or her family life. Since her twin sister Danielle
and her parents are all dead, she doesn't like talking about that part
of her life very often.
"I do keep in touch with one of my Aunt's," Daisy reveals to
him. "Jemma is a wonderful woman. I think you'd like her a lot."
Vinny nods back to her. "See, I think this is a great first step.
Let's invite your Aunt Jemma to Twin Peaks. I mean, the sooner she arrives
the better, I think."
"You think so?"
"Absolutely," VInny replies to her. "Our house is huge
and so empty. It would be nice to have another member of your family in
the house. What do you say? Give your Aunt a call tomorrow?"
Daisy smiles back to him. "Yes, I will call her tomorrow. Thank you
for being so wonderful, Vinny."
"I saw Daisy and Vinny over there, do you want to go say hello?"
Chris asks Trenyce as they sit in a back booth of the restaurant, having
a late dinner together.
Trenyce puts her gin and tonic down and looks over at Chris. She knows
that her answer should be 'yes', she wants to go see her Aunt and Vinny
but the truth is, she doesn't want to go over there. She knows that Daisy
is still upset with her because of her role in Chris' plan to use Savannah
to get Andrew away from her; she doesn't want to get another lecture about
how wrong she was. She knows that the plan was wrong, she was the one
that kept trying to stop Chris from moving forward with the plan to get
Andrew away from Savannah.
"No, I don't," Trenyce finally snaps back to him. "You
have no idea how she looks at me right now. So full of disappointment
and resentment for my role in this plan that we had. The plan I told you
time and time again would blow up in our faces."
"Okay, okay," Chris replies to her as he puts his hands up in
surrender. "I didn't mean to push your buttons. I know this has been
hard on you. It hasn't been easy on me either."
Trenyce looks back at him and quickly recalls the kiss that they shared
on New Year's Eve. A part of herself has always wondered if what Lukas
told her could be true; that she has feelings for Chris and that's why
she was so upset about his romance with Savannah. Everything has happened
so quickly, Trenyce hasn't really had time to examine her true feelings
about the situation or for Chris.
"I'm sorry," Trenyce says back to him. "I didn't mean to
snap at you. I'm just tired of this situation."
"I know you are," he agrees with her. "But you know, things
will calm down. Everything will get back to normal eventually."
"Well isn't this cozy," Frederick announces to the two of them
as he approaches this table. "The co-conspirators together again,
what scheme are you coming up with this time?"
"Frederick, we don't have time for you today," Chris quickly
replies to him, not wanting to hear him lay into them. Chris has heard
enough from everyone else about what a horrible person he is because of
Frederick chuckles a little. "Of course you don't. But guess what,
you're going to make time. After everything you did to Savannah, you two
should be ashamed of yourselves. It's disgusting what you did, you know
"We get it Frederick!" Trenyce yells back at him before she
remembers that she's in a public space. "You don't like us and that's
fine. But lay off already."
"Don't worry, I have nothing more to say to either of you,"
Frederick replies to them. "But let me tell you this, if I have anything
to say about it, neither one of you will ever see Andrew again. I will
make sure Savannah sees things my way."
Before either Chris or Trenyce can reply, Frederick walks away from the
table. Trenyce looks back at Chris and sighs heavily.
"Great," she says softly to him. "Andrew was the one reason
that we came up with this plan and now he's lost to us
Chris reaches over and grabs Trenyce's hand. She immediately looks into
his eyes at the feel of his touch. "We will get through this together,
Trenyce," he says with a slight smile. "I won't leave you alone
Scene Four - The Tower's, Floor One; Andy's Condo
Savannah slowly walks to the Andy's front door of his condo. She has been
meaning to stop by and see her friend for some time; now that she isn't
engaged to Chris, she could use a friendly face. 6 months ago she would
have gone to see Reese at this time, but he is gone. Her heart still breaks
thinking about her friend passing away. Part of the reason that she is
here to see Andy today is because one of the last things that Reese asked
Savannah to do is look out for Andy.
"Today is as a good of day as any to start doing just that,"
she says to herself as she knocks on the door. There's no immediate answer
so she knocks again. "Andy? Andy, are you home? It's me Savannah."
Finally she hears the dead bolt on the door slowly being unlocked. The
door opens and a scruffy Andy looks out. He has dark bags under his eyes
and he looks a little pale.
"Savannah? What on earth are you doing here?" he asks in a raspy
"Can I come in? I haven't seen you for a while and thought it was
long overdue that I came to see you," she says as Andy opens the
door and lets her into the condo. "You know, Reese was one of my
best friends so I care about you and want to make sure you're okay."
Savannah looks around the messy apartment that has a number of empty whiskey
bottles laying on the ground. She immediately looks back at Andy and arches
her eyebrow. "Are you okay?"
"I'm fine," he says to her as he runs his hands through his
messy hair. "I haven't cleaned up for a few days, that's all."
She picks up an empty whiskey bottle and looks back at him. "You've
been drinking a lot of whiskey. You like the hard stuff, hey?" she
asks him as she recalls seeing him drunk the night of the hospital gala.
Suddenly, she realizes that maybe Andy is developing some kind of bad
habit with alcohol. "Andy, are you drinking a lot?"
"Savannah, please," Andy begins to plead with her. "I don't
want to get into this again."
"Again?" she quickly asks him. "Who else is asking you
Andy shakes his head. "No one," he lies to her. "Like I
said, I haven't had time to clean up in a few days. I'm sorry that you
had to see me like this. I have an idea, why don't you give me 15 minutes?
I'll clean up and we can go for lunch and catch up properly."
Savannah slowly nods back to him. "Sure, that'd be great. I'd love
to catch up with you."
Scene Five - The Calimo Mansion
Kim opens the door of the main house and quickly moves inside. The cold
winter air is particularly chilly today. She throws her coat on to the
bench and moves into the living room. She immediately sees Bob
sitting at his desk in the corner of the room. Her mind quickly moves
back to when she visited her husband earlier and asked him to forgive
her for her affair with Tyler. Once again, she got nowhere with him but
she knows that eventually she will get back together with him. Besides,
that's not why she is visiting him now; she has another pressing matter
to deal with.
"Bob, I'm glad you haven't left for the office yet," she says
to him, causing him to look up from his work and over at his estranged
wife. "We need to talk."
"What is it now, Kimberly?" Bob asks her, somewhat fed-up with
her constant interruptions. "I don't really don't want to rehash
your affair with Tyler Robertson again today."
"That's not why I'm here," she replies to him as she puts her
hand on her hip. "It's about Andy."
Bob takes his reading glasses off and sets them down on the desk. He knows
that Kim has been increasingly more concerned about her brother because
of Andy's increased drinking since Reese died so the fact that she is
mentioning it again, there must be something going on that Bob isn't aware
"What is going on with your brother?" Bob asks her.
"Donovan went to see him and apparently his drinking is really getting
out of control. I'm really starting to get worried about him," Kim
says as her lower lip starts to quiver. "I don't know what to do
about it. I wish Reese hadn't died because my brother's life has been
tipped outside down because of it."
Bob stands up and moves closer to his wife and finds himself putting his
arms around her. As soon as he embraces her, she finds herself letting
tears escape her eyes. "I will do whatever I can to help you with
Andy. Whatever you need Kimberly, I'm here."
"Thank you Bob," she cries back to him. "We need to do
something before it's too late. Let's put our heads together and come
up with something."
Scene Six - The Sugarbowl
"Have you given any more thought about how you want to handle Reg
going forward?" Adam asks Helen as they sit in the back booth, referring
to the other day when they were at the hospital and they broke up a fight
between Reg and Barbara. Reg has just woken up from his coma and is already
causing problems with his verbal abuse. Much to Adam's surprise, Helen
has actually agreed with him that Reg is out of control. Now, they are
working together to think of how to handle him going forward.
Helen takes a drink of her coffee and looks back at her husband for a
moment. "I have no idea to be honest," she finally replies to
him, thankful that her husband is supporting her. They hadn't been seeing
eye to eye on her family for so long; to have them working together is
such a breath of fresh air for her. "I know you wanted to bury the
hatchet with him but I really want to thank you for being here with me.
I couldn't have been going through this without you."
Adam gulps for a moment as he thinks about his affair with Natasha the
night of the hospital gala. He hates that he has betrayed his wife in
that manner but he is trying to put it behind him and supporting his wife
going forward. "I wouldn't be anywhere else Helen," Adam says
to her as he tries to put a smile on his face. "We are in this together,
no matter what."
Helen smiles back to him. "We have to come up with something in terms
of dealing with my father," she says back to him.
"We will come up with something," he replies to her as her telephone
starts to ring.
"Excuse me for a moment," she tells him as she grabs her phone.
yes, this is her
what? Oh my God
I'll be right there!"
Adam arches his eyebrow as he looks over at his wife. "What's going
Helen starts to grab her things in a panic before she looks up at him.
"We have to get to the hospital," she tells him in a hurry.
"Reg has had another stroke."
"Well, I was just thinking about you," Frederick says to Felicia
as he approaches her, as she sits at the window bar seat drinking a latte
by herself. He came to the coffeehouse to work on some files since he
didn't want to stay at the Pampa Grill after he saw Trenyce and Chris.
Frederick looks at his patient that he is in love with and smiles when
he sees her. "What brings you here this evening?"
Felicia turns and smiles at her friend and doctor and friend. "I
was at home and just felt like I needed to get out of the house."
Frederick pulls up a seat next to her and looks at her closely for a moment.
He wonders if she is struggling with anything in particular. "What
was going on in your mind?"
Felicia sighs and takes a sip of her latte. "I was thinking of Leah,
if I'm honest. It was just hitting me that she is gone. I know it's been
"You don't have to justify it to me," he says back to her. "Grieving
takes time, you never know how long it will take to get over something
like this. Especially because you lost so much time with Leah being in
Switzerland all of those years."
Felicia looks back at him but suddenly she has a flash of white light
across her eyes. She can see Leah tied to a chair in a rustic looking
place. There's a fireplace and she's there trying to light a fire.
Suddenly, the light goes away and Felicia is staring at Frederick with
a blank stare on her face. "Felicia?" he asks her, observing
the odd look on her face. "What is it? What's wrong?"
Felicia shakes her head as she cover her mouth in shock. "I was with
Leah? I was with Leah before she died?" she gasps in horror as she
has had a memory of the events from Lake Tahoe.
He pulls her into a hug. "It's going to be okay," he tells her.
"Do you want to go? Why don't we go home and you can lay down for
a while. Maybe more memories will come back. These memories will come
back when they're supposed to, but relaxing may help them all come back."
Felicia wipes her eyes from some tears as they exit their embrace. "Fine,
yes, let's go. I want to remember. I want to know everything that has
happened to my daughter."
"I can't believe you hung out with Max," Paige tells Dawn as
they grab their drinks and move to a booth to catch up with each other.
They both needed a distraction from their lives. "I thought you didn't
like him when I introduced you to him."
Dawn takes a sip of her hot chocolate and looks over at her friend with
a sly grin. The best thing about hanging out with Max the other day is
that he had weed and the two got high together. While it was Dawn's first
time smoking weed, she found herself very enjoying it a lot; It was a
great stress relief.
"Yea, I just thought that you guys were dating and I was being cautious
as your friend," Dawn replies to her, justifying why Paige thought
she didn't like Max. "But since you claimed that you guys are just
friends, I thought it would be cool. I hope you're okay with that."
"Of course, it's fine," Paige nods back to her. "What did
you guys get up too? And, I'm not jealous, Max and I are just friends."
Dawn pauses for a moment not wanting to admit that she got high. She isn't
sure of how anyone would react to news that she did drugs. "We just
hung out and chilled. It was nothing serious."
"That's cool," she replies to Dawn. "He's a good guy to
vent too. He has heard me go off about my crazy family more times than
I can count."
"Totally," Dawn says back to her friend. "I have had a
lot of stress in my life lately too."
Paige arches her eyebrow. "What's going on?"
Dawn knows that what she did with Jacob has been wearing on her mind;
withholding his medication to get back at Natasha for sleeping with her
father was something she had to do but she has been feeling guilty ever
since then. The last thing she wanted to do is hurt an innocent baby.
"Can you promise not to say anything?" she whispers to Paige
as she leans closer to her friend, who starts to nod back to her. Dawn
knows that she shouldn't say anything but she has been dying to tell someone
what she did; just to get it off her chest. "I did something while
I was at the hospital."
"You mean while you were working as a candy striper?" Paige
"Exactly," Dawn replies to her. "I didn't give a baby his
medication when I was supposed to."
"Why would you do that?" a shocked Paige asks Dawn, horrified
by her confession.
I hate the mother of the baby. I wanted revenge and
I thought this was the best way to get back at her," a shameful Dawn
admits to her friend. "But look, I learned my lesson and I will never
do anything like that again. I've had such guilt over it."
"Good," Paige nods back to her, knowing that her friend can't
go on with this type of behaviour. "Let's hope everything works out
"It will," Dawn tells her. "It has too."
Behind the booth, Natasha stands at the coffee bar holding two coffee's
in her hand as she came to the coffee shop to get beverages for her and
Shane. Her mouth is slightly open in shock as she just heard Dawn admit
that she didn't give Jacob his medication. While, Natasha didn't hear
Dawn actually say Jacob's name, there can't be any other explanation.
This is why Jacob relapsed the same day of his check-up; he never actually
got his medication. Natasha quickly walks out of the coffeehouse, wondering
exactly what she is going to do next with the information that Dawn purposely
tried to harm her son.
