Scene One - The Sugarbowl
Kim opens the door to the coffeehouse and scurries inside. While some of the snow is melting, the air is still wintery and cool in Twin Peaks, so she is looking forward to an extra hot latte this morning. Then she wants to rush back home because she has been out all morning so she can be with her son. She left Blake with the nanny while she did her errands because she doesn't like bringing him out into the cold but she wants to be with him as much as possible.
She orders her latte and moves to the coffee bar to put a lid on her cup. She turns and is about to leave when she spots Eva sitting at the window bar looking outside as she drinks a coffee. Kim recalls the previous day when she stopped into the Riverside Delicatessen and she saw Eva and Bob together; not only were they together but they hugged each other. Kim couldn't help but feel jealous of seeing her husband in the arms of another woman, especially a woman he shares a child with. She has been working so hard to try to get Bob back; the last thing she wants is for her husband to end up with Eva.
She finds herself walking over to Eva, even though her instinct was to go the opposite direction. "Good morning Eva," Kim puts a smile on her face as Eva looks over at Kim.
Eva arches her eyebrow a little wondering what Kim could want with her as they haven't exactly had much to do with each other in the past. "Kim, how are you?"
"I'm really good, thank you," Kim tells her. "You know, the funniest thing happened to me last night when I popped into the delicatessen."
Eva nods back to her. "And, what would that be?"
"I saw you with my husband," Kim informs her, her tone changing slightly to be more assertive.
Eva laughs a little realizing what this is really about now. "Yes, Kim," she says back to her. "Bob and I have a daughter together, remember? And our daughter happens to be in the hospital, so we were discussing Natasha and everything that has happened with her. I'm surprised that you're talking to me about this considering you are supposed to be Natasha's best friend."
"Natasha is my best friend," Kim replies to her quickly. "And I'm fine with you and Bob talking about Natasha. What I'm not okay with is you in my husband's arms."
"Oh, that's what's what this is about," Eva tells her, as she stands up to face Kim. "Bob and I hugged."
"I'm going to say this once to you Eva," Kim warns her. "Stay away from my husband. If you don't, you will answer to me."
Eva laughs a little at Kim. "The last I heard you and Bob were estranged, so if he wants to be with another woman he could be."
Kim glares at her for a moment. "You'd best listen to what I just told you or else!"
Before Eva can reply, Kim walks away from her. Eva rolls her eyes, finding the entire conversation she just had completely over the top. She finds herself chuckling a little again before she returns to her seat, knowing that she has zero interest in Bob Calimo.
"So, what's up with you guys today?" Dawn asks Paige and Max as the three friends sit in the back booth of the coffeehouse. Dawn needed to get out of her house early as she wanted to be away from Adam and Helen. The house was so full of sadness as Helen and Barbara are still grieving Reg's passing. While Dawn is still upset by her Grandfather's death, she needed to get out of the house just to clear her head mostly because she is still also dealing with everything that has happened Natasha and knowing that she miscarried, which is her fault.
Paige looks back at her friend and sighs as she to is dealing with some heavy family drama. She continues to feel torn between Jeff and Robbie in the wake of Leah's death. Neither one of them are making the best decisions right now and she doesn't know what to do with either of them. Part of her wishes she could just hide from all of this mess.
"I want to avoid anything and everything that has to do with my family," Paige tells her friends. "I don't think I can deal with that today."
"Oh my God me too," Dawn replies to her with a little chuckle. "It would be nice to have a drama free day!"
"You two should just stick me with today," Max tells them with a grin on his face, and he looks at Dawn. He has a stash of weed in his bag and he would love nothing more than for them to all go and get high. Dawn smiles back to him, picking up on the fact that he has some drugs on him. She could use the high today.
"You'll have to count me out," Paige replies to her friends. "I actually did agree to have lunch with my Grandpa Bob," she reveals to them. "I hope it shouldn't be too dramatic. It's my Dad's that I am struggling with right now."
"Are you sure you want to do that?" Max asks Paige, knowing what she's been going through.
Paige nods back to him. "I do, if I've learned anything this past year it's that we don't know how much time we have left with people, especially our Grandparents."
Dawn puts her head down knowing that she did just lose her Grandfather. "I'm so sorry Dawn, I didn't mean to be insensitive," Paige quickly replies to her.
"No, it's fine," Dawn tells her. "You're right, you should go see your Grandpa. Enjoy his company while you can."
"I'll call you later, okay?" Paige tells her as she scoots out of the booth.
Max waits for Paige to be gone before he turns to Dawn and looks at her. "I'm kinda happy she left," he reveals to her with a slight grin on his face. "I have some weed in my bag, let's go get high?"
"I thought you'd never ask," Dawn smiles back to him, hoping that she can try to forget all of her problems at least for the time being.
Scene Two - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Natasha sits up in her bed of the hospital, her mind still racing about her miscarriage of Adam's baby. Her heart feels so full of sadness for so many reasons; she hates that she slept with Adam behind Shane's back; she hates that she got pregnant and didn't even realize it; she is so sad that she lost her baby; and she hates that she can't tell Shane what happened because she doesn't want him to know about her affair. She also wishes she could remember the night of the fall. The only logical thing she can think of is that she was there to tell Adam that she was pregnant.
"I just wish I could tell someone about this," she whispers to herself. "And, I wish I could remember the accident. Why was I at Adam and Helen's house?" she asks herself, as she tries to remember what happened the night she fell down the stairs. "I must have known about the baby."
Before she can think of anything else, her telephone rings. Natasha grabs the cell phone that is lying on the end table and she picks it up. "Hello," she says as she hears her brother's voice on the other end of the line. "Oh, Robbie. I'm fine, thank you for checking on me."
"I'm glad to hear that you're okay," he says back to her. "I'm actually calling because I have an update for you."
Natasha arches her eyebrow. "What kind of an update?"
"I spoke to Dawn Black about the night of the accident," he informs her as she listens intently. "And she claims that it was an accident. That you just fell down the stairs. I wish I could give you more information."
Natasha shakes her head. "No, that's fine Robbie. Thank you for telling me. There's no reason not to believe Dawn. She wouldn't lie to us."
"I tend to agree," he replies to her. "Listen, if you remember anything else at all, let me know and I can reopen this case."
"Thanks Robbie. Love you."
She hands up her phone and then she puts her head down as she tries remember something about the night of the accident as the door opens and Shane moves into the hospital room pushing Jacob's baby stroller in with him. "Look who came to surprise Mommy!" Shane announces to Natasha, as he smiles at her. "Jacob has missed you at home and since you're not getting released until later, I thought he could come and surprise you."
Natasha looks up in horror at the sight of her husband and son entering the room. She hadn't even thought about seeing Jacob; not after losing another baby. She doesn't know if she's ready to see him.
"What are you doing here? I can't believe you did this," she manages to say to him as her voice cracks a little.
"Are you okay?" Shane asks her quickly coming to the side of the bed. "I thought you'd be happy to see Jacob."
Natasha shakes her head as she fights some tears in her eyes. "Of course I am," she fakes a smile on her face. "I'm just "
"No, you don't need to explain," Shane replies to her as he holds Jacob in his hands, although he is concerned about his wife's distance from their son. "You're still recovering, I understand."
"Thank you," she manages to say as a tear falls down her cheek as she looks at Jacob and suddenly wonders what her dead child would have looked like.
Before Shane can say anything else, Victoria comes into the hospital room. "Oh, I hope I'm not interrupting," she says to them.
"Not at all," Natasha replies to her as she wipes the tears from her face, secretly happy for the interruption.
"Shane, do you mind if I have some time with Natasha? I have to go over some of her medical file with her," Victoria tells him, knowing that Shane would probably want to stay in the room with Natasha. Considering Natasha doesn't want Shane to know about the miscarriage, she is asking him to go. She can't afford to reveal anything that Natasha doesn't want her husband to know.
"Of course," Shane replies to them. "I'll be in the waiting room."
Victoria waits until Shane and Jacob are out of the room before she looks back at Natasha. "You haven't told him, have you?"
Scene Three - The Victors Mansion; Vinny & Daisy's Home
"My goodness, I ain't seen these pictures in a long time," Jemma says to Daisy and Trenyce as they sit in the living room looking at old photo albums together. The family has just finished a breakfast together and are reminiscing about past times. Daisy can't seem to take the smile off her face now that her Aunt is staying with her; she hadn't realized how much she missed having Jemma around until she came to Twin Peaks.
"We have had so many memories together," Daisy replies to her as she looks over at Trenyce. "There are a lot of photos in here that you're probably too young to remember."
Trenyce nods back to her. "Yea, I haven't seen many of these pictures of you and my Mom growing up before."
"I don' believe Miss Danielle kept many pictures," Jemma tells Trenyce, who moves closer to her. "See, this one here, your Mama was only 'bout 10 years ol'. She was always lookin' to find her next adventure."
"What is she even doing in that picture?" Trenyce asks Jemma, as she points to the picture, feeling a sense of excitement to get to see a different side of her mother.
"See that jar in her hand?" Jemma asks her as Trenyce nods back to her. "She thought if she could catch crickets they'd be her best friends," Jemma explains to her as Trenyce chuckles a little.
"That's really cute actually," she replies to her. "I've never seen this side of my Mother."
"She was somethin' else, that's for sure," Jemma tells her. "Whoowee, Imma parched."
"I'll go get some iced tea," Trenyce says to them as she stands up. "I'll be right back."
As soon as Trenyce is out of the room, Daisy looks over at Jemma. "I really wish you wouldn't talk about Danielle in that manner."
"And what manner would that be?" Jemma asks Daisy, taken aback by her comment.
"Like she was some saint," Daisy snaps back at her. "You know what she did to me. What she did to our family." Daisy can't help but think back to how her parents died in a fire and it appeared that Danielle was responsible for the fire. Not only that, but years later, Danielle took over Daisy's life and held her hostage. She was a key part in the failure of Daisy and Chris' marriage.
Before Jemma can reply, Trenyce walks back into the living room, face pale from over hearing everything Daisy just said. Trenyce pours a glass of iced tea for Jemma but when she turns to pass it to her, her shaking hands drop the glass and it shatters on the floor beyond her.
"Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry," Trenyce says, with her lip quivering as she bends over clean up the mess. "Ow!" she suddenly cries as she cuts herself on the glass.
"Trenyce, let me help you with that," Daisy quickly rushes over to her niece and passes her towel for her bleeding hand.
"I don't want your help!" Trenyce lashes out at her, upset by what she heard.
"What's gotten into you child?" Jemma asks her, as she leans forward from the sofa. "My goodness, did you hear your Aunt talkin' 'bout your Mama?"
Daisy looks back in horror realizing that Trenyce did over hear her. "Oh Trenyce," Daisy says to her niece. "I "
"I don't want to hear it," Trenyce tells her Aunt as a tear strolls down her face. "I just need some space."
Before either Jemma or Daisy can stop her, Trenyce is rushing out of the house. Jemma looks over at her niece and sighs. "Sure hope you are happy now," Jemma says to her. "You really need to cut your sister and your niece some slack Miss Daisy," Jemma informs her. "Ain't nobody in this world is perfect, you best remember that."
Scene Four - Robertson Enterprises; Dominick's Office
Dominick sits at his desk trying to focus on work but it seems to be a failing task. His mind is racing on his family and how nothing seems to be normal right now. He was with Felicia the other day and she still seems very fragile as more and more memories of the night Leah died coming back to her. He fears that she will lose it completely when all of her memories come back to her as she was a key part in why Leah died. Not only that, but she told him that she wants to stay married to him because she relies on him as a source of comfort. He doesn't even want to think about Eva will think about that because he knows that she has been pressing him to get a divorce for some time now.
"Bottom line is that this all leads back to one person," he whispers to himself. "And that's Bob Calimo."
He stands up and moves into the center of his office as he crosses his arms. "And that's why I need to think of something to get back at you, Bob," he continues to talk to himself. "You have to pay for what you've done to me and my family."
Before he can say anything, there's a quick knock on the door to his office and Robbie enters. "Hey, I got your text message about wanting to see me," Robbie tells Dominick as he comes into the office. "Is this a good time?"
Dominick turns around and nods back to Robbie. "Thank you for coming," Dominick tells him. "How is Natasha? I heard about her fall."
"She seems to be doing okay," Robbie informs him. "I believe she's getting discharged today."
"That's wonderful to hear," Dominick replies to him.
"Yea. I got the feeling that you didn't call me over here to get an update on my sister though," Robbie says back to him with a smile on his face. "What is going on Dominick?"
"You're right I did call you over here for another reason," he tells Robbie. "I'm wondering how things are between you and your father."
Robbie arches his eyebrow. "We aren't on the best of terms right now," he admits to Dominick. "I can't seem to get over the fact that he played a hand in Leah's death."
Dominick nods back to him slowly. "Is that why you called me over here?"
"You know I take my family very serious Robbie and you were a part of that family for many years," Dominick begins to explain to him. "What your father did is inexcusable."
"I couldn't agree more."
"I want Bob to pay for killing my daughter and I won't rest until that happens," Dominick narrows his eyes in on Robbie's. "And I want you to help me with that."
Robbie gulps and wonders if he should really join forces with Dominick to take down his own father. When he thinks about how upset his father would be to learn of this, Robbie fears what would happen. But at the same time, he knows that Bob does have to pay for his role in Leah's death.
"What do you say, Robbie?" Dominick asks him as he extends his hand out to shake Robbie's. "Will you help me?"
Robbie shakes Dominick's hand. "I'm in, just tell me what to do."
Scene Five - The Calimo Mansion
"I'm so glad you could come by today," Bob says to Paige as she sits on the sofa in the large mansion and he pours her a cup of tea. He moves the cup around to her and sits next to her. "I can't wait to hear everything that is going on in your life."
Paige takes a sip of the tea and sets the glass down on the coffee table in front of her. She smiles back to her Grandfather. "There's not much to tell, really," she admits to him, not really wanting to get into the drama of the family stuff going on with her right now.
"Now, come on," he chuckles back to her a little. "You're a beautiful, smart, young woman. I'm sure there's something going on that you can share with your Grandpa."
Paige chuckles back to him and suddenly feels herself become overwhelmed with everything. She fears tears in her eyes and soon she has a tear falling down her cheek.
"Darling, what is it? What is wrong?" Bob asks her as he moves closer to her and puts his arm around her.
"I just feel like nothing I the way it should be, you know?" she tells him through some tears. "My Mom is gone, Robbie is throwing Jeff out of my house, Jeff is moving on with Meggan, of all people I don't know, I just feel like my entire life has been tipped upside down."
"Oh my beauty," Bob continues to hold her. "Maybe you need a change of scenery? Have you thought about that?"
Paige dries her eyes and exits the embrace from Bob. "I don't want to go back to Europe. I feel like I belong here."
"I'm not talking about Europe Paige," Bob informs her. "I mean, you don't have to stay living with Robbie and Felicia."
"Where would I go? I don't want to live in Meggan Richardson's house with my Dad."
"Nor should you have too," Bob says as he gets a grin on his face. "Why don't you move here? This house is large enough that you could have your very own wing if you wanted to. And, I'd love to have you here with me. I get so lonely out here all alone."
Paige's eyes open in surprise. "Really? You'd like me come and stay here?"
"Of course I would," he replies to her. "What do you say? Do you want to come live with me?"
Paige smiles and grabs his hand. "I appreciate this so much Grandpa, but I need to think about it, okay?"
"Absolutely, take all the time you need," Bob tells her. "This offer doesn't have an expiry date."
Down at the guesthouse, Kim plays with baby Blake, who is laying in his playpen. He's still too young to do anything but have a few rattles but Kim still enjoys having time with her son, especially because she spent most of the morning in town running some errands.
"Mommy is home now, hey big guy?" she smiles to Blake, who goos at her. Kim continues to play with her son until she hears a knock on her door. "I wonder who that could be?" she says to Blake. "Mommy isn't expecting anyone. You stay here and I'll go see who is at the door."
She stands up and quickly moves towards the door. When she opens it, she sees Tyler standing on the other side. "Tyler, come in," she says, welcoming Blake's father into her house. "This is a surprise. What brings you by?"
"Do I need a reason to see my son and the mother of my son?" he flashes her his million dollar smile.
"I suppose not," she smiles back to him.
"Actually, I wanted to know if you got the roses I sent you? I never did hear from you," he admits, as he recalls sending Kim a dozen red roses in hopes of showing her that he still cares very deeply for her and he wants them to work as a family.
"I did get them," she replies to him quickly. "I meant to call you and thank you but so much has been going on around here."
He arches his eyebrow. "There's nothing wrong with Blake is there?"
"No, of course not," she tells him. "It's Natasha, actually. She fell down a flight of stairs. Anyways, she'll be fine but it was still a scare."
"I'm sorry, I had no idea. I would have called you to make sure that you were okay had I known," Tyler tells her.
"I appreciate that Tyler, really I do, but I'm fine and Natasha will be fine, so it's all good."
"Still," he says coming closer to her. "I don't know what I would do if anything happened to you."
"Well lucky for you, I'm fine," she reassures him.
He leans in and kisses her quickly on the lips before he pulls back. "I should be sorry about that but I'm not. I needed to feel your lips."
"We can't to do this Tyler, I've told you that time and time again," she whispers back to him, her lips lingering closer to his still.
"Then why do I get the feeling you want me to kiss you again?" he asks her as he leans in and is about to kiss her again when they hear Blake start to cry.
"I need to see what's wrong with him," she replies to him as she quickly rushes over to the playpen as Tyler lets out a sigh.
Scene Six - The Pampa Grill
"I'm glad you were able to meet me," Frederick tells Felicia as they sit at a table together. He hasn't been able to think of much else since he suggested to Felicia that she undergo hypnosis to help her recover the memories of the night Leah died. Frederick already knows what happened but this is a safe way for Felicia to unlock the memories herself and be able to handle the truth of what all went down. "Have you given any thought at all to what I suggested to you last night?"
Felicia looks back at him and nods. "How could I think of anything else? You've given me the opportunity to potentially remember what my subconscious isn't letting me remember on my own."
"Does that mean you've made a decision?" Frederick asks her.
At the entry way of the restaurant, Eva enters and looks around. Her eyes freeze when she spots Frederick and Felicia together. She immediately thinks that it's odd that the doctor and patient are meeting at the restaurant as opposed to somewhere more private. Moreover, she recalls how Frederick recently told her to stay out of Felicia's business.
"Something about that man isn't sitting well with me," she whispers to herself as she tries to get closer to the table to hear what they are saying.
"I do have an answer for you," Felicia tells Frederick. "I thought about this all night and today."
"I'll support you either way you want to go," he replies to her, trying to be supportive.
Felicia smiles back to him. "I want to do it. I want to undergo hypnosis to help me remember everything that happened leading up to Leah's death."
Frederick gets a grin on his face. "You won't regret this Felicia. This is the best news possible," he tells her, as Eva's open mouths in shock by what she just overheard.
Scene Seven - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"Have you told Shane about the baby?" Victoria asks Natasha again, as she comes closer to the hospital bed.
Natasha shakes her head no. "He can never know Victoria. You have to promise me that you'll never say anything."
"I can't say anything Natasha," Victoria replies to her. "I could lose my job if I did. But I have to tell you, this ordeal that you've been through it would be easier if you had the support of your husband. Shane would be there for you."
"I don't want to talk about this!" Natasha snaps at her doctor. "I will tell him in my own time. Right now, he can never know the truth. Never."
Victoria nods back to her. "Like I said, I won't say anything to him. But if you ever need to talk, you know I'm here for you, okay? Not just as your doctor, but as someone who cares about you."
"Thank you," Natasha replies as she gets tears in her eyes. "I just need time to process everything. I just need "
"Shane?" Victoria asks her, as she finishes her sentence.
Victoria's words make Natasha break down into tears. Victoria moves to the side of the bed and pulls her sister into a hug. She holds her as Natasha weeps into her arms.
