Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Dawn nervously looks at the nurses station and wonders if she should approach it to find out some information about Natasha. She quickly recalls how Natasha came to her house and confronted Dawn about not giving Jacob his medication which resulted in Jacob having a minor relapse. The two started to argue after Dawn admitted that she saw Natasha having sex with Adam the night of the hospital gala and when Natasha tried to reach for Dawn, she pushed Natasha and she fell down the stairs. Dawn immediately called the ambulance and Natasha is now being checked out. Dawn has so many mixed emotions running through her head right now; she wants to know if Natasha is okay but at the same time she still wants the woman to pay for what she has done to her family. She really just wants some information about Natasha.

"Maybe now," Dawn whispers to herself, thinking about everything that has happened. "Natasha will stay away from my family."

She moves closer to the nurse's station and tries to overhear some kind of update on Natasha. She freezes in her tracks when she spots Bob and Robbie in the nearby waiting room; she realizes that the doctor must have called Natasha's family.

She doesn't want to answer any questions from the Calimo's, so Dawn quickly turns and around and prepares to leave the floor. She pushes the elevator button but stops herself for a second.

"I'm a candy striper," she says to herself. "Finding out what is going on shouldn't be too difficult. I just have to find out what room Natasha is in," she tells herself as she rushes off in pursuit of the information she needs.

***

In the waiting room, Bob nervously paces around as he waits to hear some kind of update about his daughter. He wishes he knew exactly what happened and how Natasha ended up in the hospital. As he paces, he can't help but look over at Robbie, who is sitting in a chair. Bob knows that he and his son aren't exactly seeing eye to eye right now because of Bob's role in Leah's death; he wonders if because the family is in a crisis mode if he and Robbie could try to mend some of their broken fences.

"I wish we'd hear something already," Bob finally says something to his son, causing Robbie to stop looking at his phone and up at his father.

"These things take some time," Robbie tells his father. "Victoria is on call tonight, she will let us know as soon as she knows anything."

"I wish I was as calm as you are," Bob replies to him. "I can't stop thinking that something very bad is happening to Natasha."

Robbie stands up and looks at his Dad. For a brief moment, he does sympathize with him. Robbie realizes that much of Bob's worry stems from the fact that they lost Sofia too soon; he has never been able to get over the fact that she died.

"Natasha just fell down some stairs Dad," Robbie tries to reassure him. "At worst, I'm think she'll have a concussion."

"I hope you're right," Bob tells him.

"I don't see this side of you very often."

"What side is that?" Bob asks him, biting his lower lip.

"This humane side where you're vulnerable," Robbie continues to tell him. "We all know you care about us Dad but you have such a funny way of showing it sometimes."

"I love my children Robbie, you know that," Bob says back to him.

"I know you do and that's why it's so damn frustrating when you do some of the shit that you do," Robbie replies to him. "Like, giving Felicia those replacement pills."

"I don't want to talk about that right now," Bob tells him, waving his hand in the air.

"That's exactly my point," Robbie replies. "You only do things on your terms. Meanwhile, the rest of us have to deal with the aftermath of the mess you made. None of us have been the same since Leah died and that's on you."

"Robbie…" Bob begins to say to his son.

"Forget it," Robbie cuts him off. "I don't know why I thought we could move past thing. I will never be able to forgive you for taking Leah away from us."

Before Bob can say anything else, Shane comes into the waiting room. He just arrived at the hospital because he had to wait for a babysitter to come over and watch Jacob.

"Where's Natasha? What happened?" he asks in a panic, worried sick about his wife.

"We haven't heard anything yet," Bob says as he turns around to face his son in law. "Apparently she fell down some stairs."

"My God," he replies as he runs his hand through his hair. "Nothing can happen to her! I can't lose my wife."

Before anyone can say anything, Kim appears in the doorway of the waiting room. She heard about Natasha's fall and realized that she should be at the hospital. She was at home and received a dozen red roses from Tyler right before she heard about Natasha's accident. While she thinks that the gesture from Tyler is lovely, she knows that she wants to make her marriage to Bob work. What a better chance for her to prove herself to her husband then showing up and supporting him in his time of need, she thinks to herself.

"Kimberly, what on earth are you doing here?" Bob asks, as he can see her over Shane's shoulder.

Kim moves into the waiting room holding a tray of coffee's. "Natasha is my best friend," she tells him. "And she's your daughter, I couldn't say away, not when I heard what happened. I've brought some coffee from the Sugarbowl. I know no one wants to have the coffee from the hospital while we wait to hear about Natasha. Is there any news yet?"

"This is very sweet of you," Bob tells her as he accepts a coffee from Kim. She passes one to Robbie and Shane. "We haven't heard anything but we are expecting too very soon."

"Well, I'm glad I came with the coffee then," she smiles back to her husband, thrilled by his response to her.

Scene Two - The Sugarbowl

"I'm glad we are taking the time to catch up, I feel like it's been way too long," Savannah tells Donovan as they sit across from each other in one of the booths of the coffeehouse. She and Donovan do see each other often at work at Robertson Enterprises, but she thought it would be nice to actually have a real sit down conversation with each other.

"I know and we haven't even seen each other that much at work lately," Donovan replies to her. "It's been crazy. Dominick is running such a tight ship over there."

Savannah moves a piece of hair behind her ear and smiles back to him. "You're telling me. I was in fitting all day today. I know it doesn't sound hard but standing up straight while women take your measurements for the new clothing line is exhausting."

"I can only imagine," he winks back to her. "How is Andrew doing? How are you doing after everything that went down with Chris and Trenyce?"

Savannah sighs a little. "It's been an adjustment, you know? I hate feeling like I was played for a complete and utter fool but I'm trying to hold my head high. Andrew hasn't seen Chris or Trenyce since Christmas and I'm not sure I will ever be ready for him to see them again."

"That's understandable," Donovan replies to her. "I can't believe that Chris came up with such a sick plan. It doesn't seem fair."

"I don't want to dwell on that anymore," she says back to him. "Have you seen Andy lately?"

Donovan sighs and thinks about their other mutual friend who is going through an extremely difficult time right now. The last time Donovan saw Andy, he ended up getting kicked out of Andy's condo because he dumped some whiskey down the drain as Donovan is concerned about how much drinking Andy has been doing.

"I saw him a few weeks ago," Donovan reveals to Savannah. "I'm afraid I won't see him again anytime soon. He kinda threw me out of his condo because I dumped some whiskey down the sink. I'm really worried about how much drinking he has been doing."

Savannah nods back to him. "Okay, so it's not just me that noticed his drinking levels have increased."

"I've told Kim as well," he informs Savannah. "She seems to think that she can get him to control his drinking."

"I hope so," Savannah says back to him. "He hasn't been the same since Reese passed away. I just hope he stops drinking before it's too late."

"Me too," Donovan agrees with her. "Before something really bad happens."

Scene Three - Bar Code

Andy sits at the bar of the gay club and orders another whiskey on the rocks. He didn't want to have another night of just drinking at home so he came to the club for a while. He has become somewhat of a regular, always sitting at the bar and always ordering the same thing: whiskey on the rocks. He enjoys the time out of the condo, where he spends all of his time thinking about Reese.

"I'll have one more," he tells the bartender before he slams back the whiskey he has in front of him.

The bartender pours him a whiskey and sets it in front of Andy. He then turns his attention to the next customer.

"I'll have a gin and tonic," Lukas tells the bartender.

"Coming right up," he replies to Lukas. "I haven't seen you around much. Are you new in town?"

Lukas gives the attractive bartender a quick smile. "Relatively new, yup. I don't come out too often though."

"Ah, well come back anytime. You have beautiful eyes," he flirts with Lukas before he sets the drink down in front of him.

Andy looks over at Lukas and takes a drink as he observes the attractive man. "Did you just say he has beautiful eyes?" Andy asks with half a chuckle.

The bartender nods back to Andy, as Lukas looks at the young man sitting at the bar. "Jesus," Andy laughs. "Look at him, he's got a gorgeous body," Andy says to them. "His eyes are probably the last thing I'd notice."

Lukas blushes a little. "I think I'll take that as a compliment," Lukas replies to Andy.

"It was a compliment man," Andy replies as he takes another sip of his whiskey. "Ah, what the hell. I'll have one more," he tells the bartender as he finishes his whiskey and he still drunkingly eyes Lukas.

Scene Four - The Pampa Grill

"You wouldn't mind if I had a glass of red wine, would you?" Frederick asks Meggan as they sit across from each other in the restaurant, as they are going to have a late dinner together. Frederick always wants to ensure his daughter is okay with him having a drink in front of her as he knows that she is in recovery still.

"Of course not," she replies to him. "I've been sober for many years now, I'm okay with seeing other people drink."

"It's just been one of those days," he says back to her. "How was your day?"

Meggan sighs when her father asks her how her day was. She has had a long, rough day too, if she's honest. She recalls how Robbie confronted her about her relationship with Jeff and she admitted that she and Jeff had become lovers on New Year's Eve. What made things is worse is that Paige overheard it all; Meggan knows that Paige is already giving Jeff a hard time, accusing him of having a hand in Leah's death and now that Paige knows Jeff is starting to move on, their relationship with will be even more strained.

"Long, I'm glad it's over," Meggan tells him, not wanting to give her father all of the details of what's going on in her life. "Why was your day so long? Busy with patients, I'm assuming?"

Frederick looks back at his daughter and knows that he is really only focused on one patient: Felicia. He wants to do everything he can to ensure that she is in the best frame of mind possible for when her memories return. He knows that when Felicia remembers her role in Leah's death, she will be crushed. He has to ensure that she will be able to handle it when her memory does come back.

"I just wish that some things would stay in the past," he says to her cryptically. "We have all done things that we are not proud of. And yet somehow, those past mistakes always end up coming back and biting us in the ass at some point."

Meggan nods back to her father. "We just have to be prepared for when they do come back," she tells him. "What exactly are you talking about, Dad?"

Before Frederick can answer her, he spots Eva at the bar grabbing some take out. He recalls quickly how Felicia told him that Eva was grilling Felicia recently about her memories coming back. Frederick knows that Eva was curious because she is pursing Dominick.

"Excuse me for a quickly moment," Frederick tells his daughter as he stands up and rushes over to the bar, where Eva is about to leave with her take out. "Eva, do you have a moment?"

Eva looks back at Frederick. "I'm afraid not," Eva tells him. "I have to get to the hospital. There's been a crisis with my daughter. I was just getting some food while we wait to hear anything."

"I won't keep you long then," he replies to her. "Felicia told him that you were asking her questions about her memory."

Eva nods back to him. "I was curious as to how she was doing," Eva tells him.

"That's very sweet of you," Frederick smiles back to her. "But do me a favor? Stay away from Felicia. I need to make sure that she is in the best possible frame of mind before her memory comes back."

"And having a friend wouldn't be in her best interest?" Eva asks him back. "Actually, don't answer that Frederick. I have to get to the hospital. You should learn to stop obsessing over a woman that is your patient."

Before Frederick can reply, Eva brushes past him. He sighs and hopes that Eva listens to him about staying away from Felicia.

"Only I can help her," he whispers to himself.

Scene Five - The Victors Mansion; Vinny & Daisy's Home

"So this is the great Aunt Jemma?" Vinny asks as he moves into the living room and spots Daisy and Jemma talking on the sofa together. He is thrilled that his wife invited her Aunt to come and stay with them while they finish planning their wedding. He hopes that having Jemma around will help Daisy with the wedding plans and come to a decision on the direction she wants to go with the ceremony.

"Yes," Daisy says to him as she stands up and hugs her fiancé. "Vinny Victors, this is my Aunt Jemma. Jemma, this is my fiancé Vinny."

Jemma stands up and looks at Vinny for a moment. "You've done al'right for yourself Miss Daisy," Jemma winks to her niece before she steps up and pulls Vinny into a hug. "It's a pleasure to meet ya Mr. Victors."

"Oh, the pleasure is all mine," Vinny replies as they exit their embrace. "And please, call me Vinny."

"I shall do that, Vinny," Jemma smiles back to him. "And this house is pretty special. Reminds me of a place I used to work."

"Oh yea?" Vinny asks her. "I often feel like this place is too big for just Daisy and I. It's part of why I wanted her to invite you to stay with us before the wedding. It's nice having another face around here."

"Well, ya know, one day this house will be filled with babies that you and Miss Daisy have," Jemma says with half a chuckle as Daisy looks at her in shock.

"Jemma!" Daisy laughs. "We haven't even talked about children."

Jemma shrugs. "It's mother nature Daisy, ya know, the birds and those bees."

"I'm going to get some lemonade from the kitchen, I'll be right back," Daisy tells them as she leaves the room.

"So, how was your flight here?" Vinny asks Jemma, as he moves to sit down beside her on the sofa.

"Before we get into that," Jemma says back to him, as she grows more serious. "I'm glad we have a moment alone together because I wanted to talk to you about somethin'."

"I'm all ears," Vinny replies to her.

"You best not hurt my beautiful Daisy," Jemma warns him. "Cause, I don't take well to men treatin' her badly, you hear?"

Vinny gulps. There's something about the tone in which Jemma is talking to him that he actually feels a little apprehensive. "Of course not. I love her very much, the last thing I want to do is hurt her."

"Good, glad we got that out of the way," she replies to him with a grin on her face.

"What are you two talking about?" Daisy asks as she comes back into the living room holding a pitcher of lemonade.

"We was just getting to know each other," Jemma tells her. "Isn't that right, Vinny?"

Vinny uneasily nods back to her and Daisy. "That's exactly right."

Scene Six - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Victoria opens the door to Natasha's hospital room and sees her laying in the bed with her eyes closed. Victoria quickly reviews her chart before she enters the room but she leaves the door slightly ajar. Dawn moves up to the door and waits outside of it, as she sees Victoria inside the room. She still wants to know what is going on with Natasha; she has to make sure that Natasha will be okay. Keeping this in her mind, she stays by the opened door way hoping to hear what Victoria says to Natasha.

Natasha opens her eyes when she hears Victoria close the file. She has a headache and feels her body stiff and sore. "What happened?" she asks slowly, as Victoria moves closer to her.

"You don't remember what happened?" Victoria asks her, knowing that it's not uncommon for someone who has a head injury to have a foggy memory.

Natasha shakes her head no. "I feel pain though. I have a horrible headache," she tells her doctor.

"You fell down a flight of stairs," Victoria reveals to Natasha.

"What? How did this happen?" Natasha asks her, still confused by the events that have happened.

"We aren't exactly sure," Victoria replies to her. "I'm hoping that in a few days you're memory will come back and fill in some missing pieces."

Natasha looks back at her with concern. "I will be okay, won't I?"

Victoria nods back to her. "You will be fine Natasha," she tells her. "You have a slight concussion but you should heal nicely. But…"

"But what?" Natasha asks her.

"I'm afraid the baby wasn't so lucky," Victoria slowly tells her as Natasha's eyes open wider in surprise.

"Baby? What baby?" Natasha asks her, horrified by what Victoria is telling her. Outside, Dawn covers her mouth in shock by what she is hearing between Natasha and Victoria.

"You were pregnant Natasha," Victoria reveals to her, as Natasha suddenly realizes the reason she had been feeling dizzy the last couple of weeks. "But you lost the baby in the fall. I'm so sorry."

Natasha closes her eyes as a tear falls down her cheek. "Thank you for telling me this Victoria," she says back to her as she wipes her cheek dry. "If you don't mind, I'd like some time alone."

"Of course," Victoria replies. "Shane, your brother and father are all here. Would you like to see them?"

"Maybe in a little while," Natasha replies to her, as she gets tears in her eyes as the realization that she lost a baby sets in. "Right now, I just want time alone. And Victoria," Natasha says to her, causing Victoria to stop at the door at turn around. "Please don't say anything about the baby to anyone."

"Of course not," Victoria tells her. "It's doctor-patient confidentiality. It won't leave this room."

Outside, Dawn realizes that Victoria is about to leave so she rushes off. Victoria leaves Natasha's room and closes the door behind her. She can't believe what she overheard: Natasha lost a child. In Dawn's mind, this is all her fault; she caused Natasha to lose a baby.

Natasha has another tear fall down her cheek as she moves her hand to her stomach. "I was pregnant," she weeps to herself. "Shane and I haven't made in love in months though…" she continues to tell herself. "So it must have been…" she realizes the horrific truth, thinking back to the night of the hospital gala. "Adam's baby."
