Scene One - The Glubbs House; Shane, Natasha & Jacob's Home

"Lindsay, Jacob is crying again, can you go check on him please?" Natasha asks the nanny, who is in the kitchen fixing some bottles for the baby. Natasha still isn't ready to go up and hold her son yet. She doesn't know if or when she will be ready to hold her baby again; right now, she is focused on trying to remember everything that happened the night of her fall and get over the fact that she lost a baby. She doesn't know how to hold her child when she lost one recently. She hopes this feeling passes because Shane is starting to ask her questions that she can't answer.

She watches as Lindsay scurries from the kitchen and rushes up the stairs. Natasha is so grateful that she has gotten a nanny to help her with Jacob; she doesn't know what she would do if she had to be alone during the day with Jacob and not able to hold him.

"Thank goodness Shane and I decided that before the accident that we would get a nanny," she whispers to herself. "At least now, I can focus on myself and getting better and Lindsay can watch Jacob."

She moves into the living room again and puts her hand to her stomach. She recalls how she told Adam the truth about their baby that she lost when he visited her the other day. Natasha felt better after finally being able to tell someone about her miscarriage; keeping her feelings bottled up inside had been really getting to her because of the emotional toll it has been taking it on her. She knows that she can trust Adam not to say anything because he doesn't want the truth of their affair to be revealed either.

"At least I have someone to talk to now," she whispers to herself. "He won't say anything, I know that for sure."

She also recalls how she told him that Dawn, not Adam, was at the Black house the night of her fall. She knew Dawn had been there because she is the one who called 911 after she fell. Natasha had believed that she went to the Black house to tell Adam that she was pregnant, but after talking to Adam she realizes that Natasha would have known that Adam was at the hospital the night of the fall because of Reg's stroke. Natasha doesn't understand why she would have gone to the house to see Dawn instead of Adam.

"If only I could remember that night," Natasha says to herself as she pours herself a glass of water. "Why would I have gone to see Dawn? I know that I needed to tell Adam about the baby."

Suddenly, Natasha closes her eyes and herself and Dawn on the stairs in the Black house. She can tell that they were fighting about something but it is still a bit of a blurr.

When Natasha opens her eyes she gasps. "Oh my God," she says as she covers her mouth and drops her water glass, causing it to shatter on the ground.

"Natasha?" Shane asks as he enters the room, just getting home from the hospital. "What happened? Are you okay?"

Scene Two - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home

"Has Dawn left for her shift at the hospital already?" Adam asks Helen, as he takes a drink of his coffee. He is hoping to have a real conversation with his wife today about everything that he has been going on in their lives lately. He knows that she blames him for Reg's death because he was in the room with her father when he went into cardiac arrest; what he has never told her what Reg was actually telling Adam that he is worthless. He hopes that once Helen hears that, she will understand that Adam really didn't have anything to do with Reg's death. Of course, the other pending issue that Adam has with Helen is that she has agreed to pay Reg's outstanding debts that were left in his will.

He looks over at his wife when she doesn't respond to him. "Helen, please say something to me. We can't walk on eggshells forever."

"What do you want me to say, Adam?" she sighs back him as she puts another sugar cube into her tea. "That you killed my father? Or that you're upset with me for paying his bills and helping my Mother out?"

Adam moves forwards to his wife and puts his hand on her shoulder. "What can I say to you to make you realize that I didn't kill your father? He had suffered multiple strokes, he wasn't a very well man."

"I don't know what you can say, Adam," she replies to him. "I think I just need time to heal from everything that has happened. It's not something that I can just get over."

"That's fair," he says back to him. "Let me just say this though," he continues to say to her. "I understand why you agreed to pay Reg's debts for Barbara. I know that your mother wasn't in the position to handle that kind of money."

She looks up at him and gives him half a grin. "I know it's not ideal for us but I couldn't let her handle this at time. She's going through so much as it is."

Adam puts his hand on her shoulder. "I know. I understand that," he replies to her as she cringes slightly at his touch. "I just hope one day you'll be able to see that I didn't set any of this into motion."

Scene Three - The Sugarbowl

Cory moves into the coffeehouse feeling like he is on cloud nine. While Robin has been away for some time getting better from her mental breakdown after their daughter was stillborn, he didn't hear from her because she had continued to shut him out. That all changed the other day, when Robin finally called him and they had a conversation; he never thought the day would come when they would be able to communicate again.

He orders his coffee and moves over to the coffee bar to put some cream and sugar into it. As he puts the lid on, Donovan comes up behind him.

"Cory? How are you?" he asks him, as Cory looks up and sees Donovan.

"Hey, I'm good Donovan. How are you doing?"

"I can't complain. I think I probably owe you an apology," Donovan admits to him as they move to the window bar and sit with each other.

"You owe me an apology? I'm not sure I follow," Cory admits to him.

Donovan takes a sip of his latte. "I was working rather closely with Robin before the…" Donovan begins to say back to him.

"There's no need to apologize about the death of our child," Cory replies to him quickly. "It happened so long ago."

"I know," Donovan says back to him. "I wanted to apologize for not checking in on Robin's prognosis. I know she's been away for a while getting better."

"She has been getting better, but I appreciate that you care enough to ask. She actually called me the other day. I really think she will be coming home soon," Cory reveals to him.

"That's fantastic news!" Donovan smiles back to him. "We've missed her at Robertson Enterprises. I know she won't be back at work soon but she is missed."

Cory smiles him. "I can't wait for her to be," he tells Donovan.

"I sense you're apprehensive about something," Donovan says back to him, sensing something off in Cory's tone of voice.

Cory sighs and thinks about his affair with Rebecca. He knows that it was a mistake and while he has ended the affair, he doesn't know how he will ever be able to keep it from everyone.

"I…" he says slowly to Donovan. "I made a mistake, I just hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the ass."

"I wouldn't worry about it," Donovan says back to him, not knowing what Cory is talking about. "The best news it that Robin is slowly coming back to you."

Scene Four - The Pier

Rebecca walks along the pier and listens to the river flowing. It's her first time to the pier this year as spring has struck and it is warm enough to walk there. Rebecca checks her watch as she received a text message from her mother telling her that she had to meet someone on the pier to help her with the next phase of their plan. Rebecca does partly feel bad that she is working with her mother on a secret plan that involves Cory and Robin but she also knows that she's gone too far in her plan to back out now.

"What do you have planned for me today Mother?" she asks herself, wondering who her mother wanted her to meet on the pier. The location doesn't surprise her because she knows that her mother wants to be discreet but she has no idea who her mother would possibly want her to meet this morning.

She turns around when she hears a noise but doesn't see anything. She shakes her head. "Great, now I'm hearing things."

She turns back around and sees a figure approaching her. She stops in her tracks and when the person lifts their head, Rebecca gasps in shock. "I … I don't believe that you're here," Rebecca stutters out of her mouth.

Melissa looks up and removes her large sunglasses and smiles to her daughter. "I thought it was high time I was here to help you with the next phase of this plan."

Rebecca looks back at her mother, still shocked that she is there. "No one can see you. No one can know that you're here."

"Don't worry about that," Melissa grins back to her daughter. "Now give your mother a hug, it was a long flight."

Scene Five - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"I just got word that Andy is going to be released this morning," Kim tells Bob as she walks into the waiting room of the hospital and looks back at her husband. She can't believe that he stayed overnight with her while Andy was in the hospital as he had to have his stomach pumped because of the amount of alcohol he had drank. While Kim hasn't said anything to Bob, she can't help but wonder if this could be a turning point for her and her husband. They have been so distant lately, maybe the crisis with Andy will push them back together.

"That's fantastic news," Bob replies to her, standing up and stretching a little. "I guess I will head home then."

"Yea, I bet you can't wait to stretch out on the bed at home as opposed these uncomfortable chairs," Kim smirks back to him. "Seriously, Bob, thank you so much for waiting with me last night. I couldn't have been here alone."

"You're never alone Kimberly," he says to her as he moves closer to his wife. "I'm just glad that everything turned out the way it is supposed to."

Kim finds herself pulling him into a hug. "I appreciate you being here. Get home safely and I will stop by the house later, okay?"

"That sounds lovely. Please give Andy my best," Bob smiles back to her as they exit their embrace.

Kim nods back to him before she turns around and walks out of the waiting room. She makes her way to Andy's room. She knocks on the door quickly before opening it and moving inside. She sees Andy packing his bag on the bed that he was in before he got up this morning.

"Wow, you're up and at it already," Kim observes to her brother.

Andy turns around and looks at his sister. He doesn't know if he should be happy to see her or embarrassed by what happened. He never believed that he would drink so much that he would pass out in his own vomit and have to have his stomach pumped. He knows that he could have died had Kim not stopped by his condo the other night.

"I'm ready to get out of here," he says back to her, finally saying something to her. "I want to go home and try to put this behind me."

Kim comes up to him and puts her hand on his shoulder. "I think we need to have a serious talk about things, don't you?"

Andy nods back to her. "Can it wait til we get home? I really just want to get out of this place."

"That's understandable," Kim replies to him.

"But Kim," he says back to her, as she looks into his eyes. "Thank you for everything. Really, I mean it."

"Oh Andy," Kim replies to him as she pulls him into a hug. "I'm always here for you, don't you know that?"

"I do know that. I love you."

Scene Six - Tyler's Townhouse

Trenyce slowly opens her eyes and feels her head resting on a firm, toned torso. She finds her finds slowly moving up a six pack of abs. A smile creeps across her face as she feels the body beneath her. She finishes opening her eyes and looks up and sees Tyler's face smiling back at her.

"Good morning," he says to her, as he recalls the previous day when they bumped into each other at the coffee house and they ended up back at his place having intense sex all day and all night long. They both, clearly, needed the release and they both got exactly what they needed. "I hope you slept well."

Trenyce nods back to him. "How could I not after the day we had yesterday," she winks back to him.

"It was pretty intense, huh?" he smiles back to her. "I have to admit though, I needed that."

"I think we both did. You were wonderful, by the way."

He chuckles a little as he pulls her face to his and he kisses her quickly. "You were pretty good yourself."

She smiles back to him. "Look," she begins to tell him as she moves her hair behind her ear. "As wonderful as this was, I don't know that it should happen again. I know that we are in different places in our lives right now."

Tyler opens his in surprise. "What's wrong? Did I say something wrong?" she asks him, noticing his facial expression.

"Not at all," he replies to her. "Usually the morning after, the guy tells the girl it shouldn't happen again," he chuckles a little. "But I understand exactly what you're saying. I'm trying to get back together with Kim and you're…"

"I'm complicated," she laughs back to him, as she thinks about her unresolved feelings for Chris. "I'm glad we agree that it this was great but probably shouldn't happen again."

"Me too," he replies to her Trenyce. "I hope we can be friends Trenyce."

"I think we are," she says back to him. "I should get up and get to the office though. Mind if I shower first?"

"Not at all, by all means," he says as he leans back in the bed and starts to think about how he can get back together with Kim now that his mind is free and clear.

Scene Seven - The Calimo House; Robbie, Felicia & Paige's Home

"I can't believe that I'm just finding out about this today!" Dominick says in frustration as Eva has just told him that Felicia has agreed to undergo hypnosis to help uncover the memories she has from the night Leah died. Eva only knows about this because she overheard Felicia and Frederick talking about the hypnosis at the Pampa Grill. She knew that she had to tell Dominick the truth because he would want to be with Felicia while she was put under. "How could you make this decision without telling me about it?" he asks his wife.

Felicia takes a sip of her tea and looks back at Dominick. "I didn't want to burden you with this," she replies to him, being honest with him. "You've spent so much time worrying about me and we have no idea if this will even work. I just thought if I tried it, we could see if anything actually comes from this."

"I'm sorry that I got in the middle of this Felicia," Eva tells her as she stands up and looks at her. "I just thought that Dominick would want to be here for you, to support you. We all want the best for you."

"I appreciate that Eva, I really do," Felicia replies to her. "I'm not upset with you at all. I just hope that Dominick realizes that I have to do this. I have to remember everything that happened."

Dominick comes up to Felicia and grabs her hand, a gesture that Eva quickly takes note of. "I understand completely," he reassures her. "I just wish that you would tell me everything that is going on with you. I only want what is best for you."

"I know and I appreciate that very much," Felicia nods back to him as she gets tears in her eyes. Before she can reply there's a knock on the front door. "That must be Frederick now," she says to them as she moves to the front door. Felicia opens the door and sees her doctor on the other side.

"Good morning," Frederick smiles to her as he comes in and gives Felicia a quick kiss on the cheek. "Are you ready for the big day?"

"As ready as I will ever be," she replies to him as Frederick moves into the living room.

The doctor is immediately taken aback by the presence of Dominick and Eva. "Oh, I didn't realize that there was going to be an audience."

"You didn't really think that Felicia was going to go through this alone, did you?" Dominick questions Frederick, thinking that this is another one of the doctor's underhanded moves to try to make the decisions pertaining to Felicia without his permission. "Need I remind you who Felicia's husband is?"

Eva rolls her eyes a little at the comment. "The point is Frederick, we don't want Felicia to go through this alone so we are going to stay."

"Is this what you want?" Frederick asks Felicia, who nods her head back to him. "Very well, I won't stop you from waiting down stairs. But we will perform the hypnosis upstairs, alone in Felicia's room."

Dominick walks over to Felicia and puts his arms on her shoulders. "Are you sure you want to do this?"

Felicia nods back to him as she gets tears in her eyes. "I have to Dominick," she replies to him. "I have to know what happened the night Leah died. I have to know what happened to our daughter."

Dominick feels his heart sink as he looks at her. "Very well, Eva and I will be here as soon as you're awake."

"Thank you for being here," she whispers back to him as she hugs him quickly, causing Eva to watch them with jealousy again.

"If you're ready Felicia, we can go upstairs," Frederick tells her, interrupting the hug.

"I'm ready," Felicia replies as she looks at Dominick one more time before she turns and walks with Frederick up the stairs.

Scene Eight - The Glubbs House; Shane, Natasha & Jacob's Home

"Natasha, are you okay?" Shane asks his wife again, as he just came home from the hospital and he has seen that Natasha has dropped a water glass causing it to shatter.

A shaken Natasha turns around and sees her husband. A tear falls down her cheek as she rushes over to him and puts her arms around him. "Hey, hey," he says as he holds her. "What is it? What's wrong?"

Natasha weeps into his shoulder for a moment. "I just feel so confused," she admits to him. "I keep having these flashes from the night of the accident but I can't put all the pieces together. I just wish this nightmare would be over."

Shane moves his wife to the sofa and they sit down together. "You know this will all be over very soon," he tells her. "When people experience this kind of stress, their memories usually come back very quickly once things have settled. It just takes time, okay?"

Natasha wipes her eyes from her tears. "I'm sorry I'm such a mess," she replies to him, as she suddenly has another memory flash. She gasps in horror for a moment and she tries to pretend that she's okay, as she doesn't want to further worry Shane.

"You don't need to apologize Natasha," he says back to her, not realizing that Natasha has had another memory. "I just want you to be okay. I want us to be a family again, you, me and Jacob."

"I want that too," Natasha admits to him, trying to focus on her husband. "I just … I don't know when I'll be ready for any of that. I just don't know."

Shane looks at his wife and wonders what is really going on with her. He can tell that something is eating away at her. If only, he thinks to himself, that she would open up to him. He doesn't really understand why she won't, but he knows he won't rest until he learns the truth.

"We can take all the time you need," he says back to her, trying to reassure her but also knowing that he can take the time to uncover the truth about what is really going on with Natasha.
