Scene One - The Calimo Mansion
"What is this about? What has gotten you so upset?" Bob asks
Robbie as he follows his son into the living room of the Calimo mansion.
Bob was rather surprised to see Robbie on his doorstep considering that
he and Robbie haven't exactly been seeing eye to eye lately because of
Bob's role in Leah's death. Bob is especially concerned about this visit
because it's very clear that something is troubling Robbie. While he and
Robbie aren't seeing eye to eye, he still hates seeing his son so upset.
"Paige," Robbie grits his teeth back to his father. "How
could you move her into this place? What exactly are you trying to prove?"
Bob can't help but chuckle a little at Robbie's puffed out ego over the
situation with Paige. "I'm not trying to prove anything Robbie,"
Bob replies to him. "She came to me and was very distraught. I simply
offered a place to stay while she figures things out for herself. She's
not a little girl anymore Robbie, she can make her own decisions."
"Do you really think that she would be living here if she knew the
truth about what happened to her mother?" Robbie blasts his father.
"She would hate you the way I hate you if she knew the truth about
what you did to Felicia!"
Bob looks back at his son and shakes his head a little. He wishes he knew
what he could say or do to make Robbie forgive him for what happened last
summer in Lake Tahoe. He only wants to try to help Paige in her time of
need not anger Robbie by offering assistance.
"Please keep your voice down," Bob replies to Robbie. "I'm
trying to help Paige in her time of need, Robbie. I'm not trying to hurt
you in anyway."
"Bullshit," Robbie says back to him quickly. "You never
do anything that doesn't help your own agenda."
"Nothing I say will get through to you, will it?" Bob asks his
son back. "I just hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive
me one day."
"I will never forgive you for what you did," Robbie grits his
teeth back to his father. "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to
Robbie starts to move out of the living room. "Robbie," Bob
calls after him, causing Robbie to stop and look back at his father. "Don't
hurt that girl any more than she already is."
"Don't worry," Robbie replies to him. "I have no plans
on revealing your role in Leah's death. Paige has been through enough
as it is."
Scene Two - The Tower's, Floor One; Andy's Condo
Andy stands in the washroom of his condo and holds a blow dryer to the
mirror, knowing that the hot air will soon clear the steam off the mirror
so he can finish getting ready for his day. As he watches the vision of
himself become clearer in front of himself, he can't help but dread what
is coming his way. He knows that Kim is going to be coming over today
so they can talk about his drinking. Andy realizes that what recently
happened with Kim coming over and finding him passed out in a pool of
his own vomit is serious, he can't deny that. But, there's a part of him
that thinks that everyone is just over reacting. He doesn't have a problem,
he just over did it that day.
"And," he whispers to himself. "I didn't have anything
to eat. It was just a one off. I don't have a problem drinking."
He quickly throws some hair product into his hair and then moves into
his bedroom to get dressed. "I know Kim was worried about me,"
he says to himself. "And I appreciate that she cares but she has
to understand that I don't have a problem. The question is, how am I going
to make her realize that?"
He finishes getting dressed and walks into the kitchen. He opens a cupboard
and his eyes quickly see a bottle of whiskey and a glass. He sighs and
quickly shuts the cupboard so he can't see the alcohol.
"No, I shouldn't have a drink," he says to himself. "Kim
would think that it's more proof that I have a problem. But, on the other
hand, if I just had one, I could easily show her that I can handle my
Andy nods his head, having convinced himself of his theory. He reopens
the cupboard and pours himself a whiskey before he quickly takes a drink
Scene Three - The Sugarbowl
Craig enters the coffeehouse wanting to have another coffee as his day
has not gone as well as he would have liked it to. The previous evening
he and Lukas had a disagreement after Lukas returned from his quick trip
to Santa Barbara and he still doesn't feel like he is ready to come out
to Frederick. Craig understands how hard it can be to come out to family
but he also thinks that Lukas is beyond the age that it should matter.
All that should really matter is Lukas' happiness. The frustrating part
for Craig is that he feels like he back in the closet as they can't do
anything as a couple in public.
Craig grabs his coffee and moves to the coffee bar to put some cream and
sugar into his cup. As he stirs his coffee, he looks over and sees Donovan
in the back booth reviewing some files for work. Craig can't help but
wonder how much Donovan's presence has been influencing Lukas' behaviour
lately. Craig knows that Donovan and Lukas were very close a few years
ago when they were living in Europe; Lukas still hasn't opened up to him
about his relationship with Donovan, which troubles Craig to a certain
extent. Craig does, however, recall Lukas telling him that the reason
he and Donovan broke up was because of Lukas' reluctance to come out and
Donovan was tired of living in the shadows. Craig is starting to understand
where Donovan was coming from.
Craig finds himself moving over towards Donovan's booth. Donovan looks
up and sees Craig approaching him. "I haven't seen much of you lately,"
Donovan tells his friend.
"I know," Craig says back to him as he sits across from him.
"We spent a lot of time together last fall working on the hospital
gala. It's sort of weird not seeing you as much now."
Donovan gets a sly grin on his face. "Before I knew you were dating
Craig tries to laugh as well but he can't bring himself to do so. "Have
you been seeing a lot of Lukas now that you know he's in town?"
Donovan shakes his head. "Not really," he says back to him.
"Why do you ask?"
Craig looks back at him. "I just don't want you to be in my relationship
with Lukas, that's all."
Donovan looks back at him in shock that he suggested that he was in their
relationship. "Believe me, Craig, I'm not in your relationship. I
have no idea where that came from but that's not my style."
"I know, I'm sorry," Craig replies to him quickly. "It's
just been a long day."
"Well, you probably shouldn't take it out on others like that,"
Donovan snaps back at him as he packs up his stuff and quickly walks away
from Craig. Craig sighs knowing that he didn't mean to offend Donovan,
it just came out wrong.
"That seems to be my way of doing things lately," he whispers
to himself before he takes another sip of his coffee.
Scene Four - The Pampa Grill
"I'm sorry I haven't seen more of you lately," Frederick smiles
over to Savannah as they sit across from each other in the restaurant.
He feels bad that he hasn't seen more of her in the recent weeks after
everything she went through during the holidays with learning about Chris
and Trenyce's plan to use her in hopes of getting Andrew back. He can
only imagine how she is really holding up, since she has always been reassuring
that she is fine.
"I've been so busy with work, it's fine," Savannah replies to
him as she picks up a glass of wine and takes a sip of it. "I don't
need you checking up on me."
Frederick looks back at the young woman that has become like another daughter
to him and sighs. He can see it on her face that she is struggling. "You
know who you're talking too, right?"
Savannah forces a smile on her face as she looks back at him as she quickly
gets tears in her eyes. "Just be honest with me, Savannah. How are
you holding up? These last few weeks couldn't have been easy on you."
"They haven't been," she admits to him as she puts a piece of
her hair behind her ear. "Finding out that Chris was using me has
been one of the hardest things I've ever had to get over. I was ready
to marry that man. I thought I was in love with him."
"We all make mistakes when it comes to matters of the heart,"
Frederick informs her. "You can't beat yourself up over it."
"How can I not?" she asks him back. "How could I be so
stupid? Thank God you were able to uncover the truth before I married
"That's all in the past," he continues to tell her. "What's
important now is how you are healing and trying to move forward. Have
you thought of dating again?"
She looks back at him in shock. "No, and I'm nowhere near ready to
start dating again. I don't know that I will ever be able to trust another
man again. I'm
" she starts to tell him as a tear forms in her
eye. "I'm still devastated over this."
He reaches over and grabs her hand. "Oh Savannah," he replies
to her quickly. "You will get over this. You're a beautiful young
woman. This won't be the end of you, not by a long shot."
"I hope you're right," she replies to him as she dries the corner
of her eye. "I've been keeping everything inside for so long because
I'm trying to stay strong for Andrew but this is eating me up inside."
"Is there anything I can do to help you?"
"Just by being here for me Frederick," she replies to him quickly.
"You're helping me. I have grown to rely on you so very much."
"And I'm always going to be here for you, Savannah," he says
back to her with a smile on his face. "You're my family now. You
always will be."
Scene Five - Robertson Enterprises; Trenyce's Office
Trenyce sits at her desk looking over her latest fashion designs for the
company that she has been working on. She knows that she is about to start
the process of her next launch so she wants all of her designs to be absolutely
perfect. She doesn't like having any flaws in her clothing designs; she
takes far too much pride in what she does to have anything but something
that is perfect.
Her mind, however, is not completely focused on her designs. She can't
stop thinking about what is going on in her life right now; Lukas continues
to tell her that she may have feelings for Chris and that is why she was
so opposed to his plan to use Savannah last year to get Andrew back. While
she has heard Lukas say those words to her a few times now, she hasn't
really had time to examine her feelings for Chris. Could she really have
feelings for him? They have been through so much together, it would certainly
be a surprise to her if she did have feelings for Chris. She isn't sure
how to process the idea.
"And," she whispers to herself. "What did I do? Instead
of looking in my heart to find out if I have feelings for him, I slept
with Tyler," she continues to say to herself as she recalls the other
day when she and Tyler ran into each other and then ended up spending
the entire day in his bed. She gets a slight grin on her face knowing
that she needed the release, and it was very clear that Tyler did as well
but she fears that she has only complicated things for herself.
"At least he said he understood that we can't continue sleeping with
each other," she says to herself, thinking about her conversation
Before she can continue her conversation with herself, she hears a knock
on her office door. It opens and she sees Chris walk into inside. "Chris?
What are you doing here?"
He comes in and looks at her as he shrugs his shoulders. "I hadn't
seen you in a few days and I thought I should change that. What does your
day look like?"
"I have to finish reviewing these designs and get them into Dominick
before I leave here," she replies to him as she stands up and moves
over to the bar in her office and pours herself a glass of water. "But
after that, my day looks pretty good."
He comes up closer to her and smiles back at her. "That's perfect,"
he says as he looks into her eyes.
She arches her eyebrow. "What's perfect?"
"You're free for dinner then," he continues to smile at her.
"I'll make reservations at the Pampa Grill. We can catch up. How
does that sound?"
Trenyce finds herself smiling back to him. "That sounds really nice
"Great, then it's a date," he says not realizing Trenyce starts
to blush a little.
Scene Six - The Tower's, Floor One; Andy's Condo
Kim steps off the elevator and quickly walks over to the front door to
Andy's condo, holding a bag of sandwiches from the Riverside Delicatessen.
She hopes to have lunch with her brother today and have a serious discussion
about his drinking levels. After he was released from the hospital because
she found him passed out in his own vomit and he had to have his stomach
pumped, Kim knows that Andy needs to realize how serious the drinking
has become. She knows that he is going through a rough time since Reese's
death, but drinking is not going to solve anything; if anything, it's
going to make things worse.
"I have to make you realize that you're not in a good place,"
she whispers to herself before she knocks on his door.
Andy opens the door and gets a smile on his face when he sees his sister.
"Kimmy! Come on in," he tells her as he swings the door open
and Kim moves inside. "Is that food in that bag? I'm starving!"
"I brought us lunch, yes," Kim replies to him as she moves into
the living room of his condo and quickly notices that there's a glass
with ice cubes on the coffee table. She sets the bag down and picks up
in the glass. She moves the glass to her nose to smell it; she immediately
can smell whiskey from the glass. "Have you been drinking?"
Andy moves over to her and takes the glass from her as he shrugs his shoulders.
"I just had a little whiskey," he says back to her. "Do
you want one with lunch? I probably will."
Kim shakes her head in shock. "I can't believe this Andy!" she
says back to him quickly. "How can you be drinking? You just got
out of the hospital because you drank too much! What's wrong with you?
What are you thinking?"
Andy looks back up at her as he pours some whiskey into his glass. "That
was just an one off," he says back to her. "I know it was serious,"
he tells her. "But I won't drink that much again. I promise. But
having a couple at lunch isn't the end of the world, is it?"
"Oh Andy," Kim replies to him as she moves closer to him and
takes the glass out of his hand. "I want you to realize how serious
this is. You almost died."
"But I didn't," Andy says back to her as he takes the glass
out of her hand and takes a sip of his whiskey. "And I'm fine. I
will be fine. I promise you, everything is fine," he tells her as
he takes another sip of his whiskey and Kim watches him, wondering how
she can possibly get through to Andy about his drinking, now realizing
it could be more serious than she first anticipated.
Scene Seven - Twin Peaks General Hospital; The Cafeteria
"How is Natasha" Victoria asks Shane as they sit together in
the cafeteria and are having lunch together. The two normally don't always
get to have lunch together but they happen to be on the same shift of
the hospital today, so they get to catch up. Victoria has been meaning
to call and check on her half-sister, but since she is with Natasha's
husband, she can find out through him how Natasha is doing from her fall
down the stairs. "I've been meaning to call or go and see her but
I've been so busy at the hospital lately."
Shane smiles back at her as he thinks about his wife. He has been trying
to stay positive but since her fall, something has changed in Natasha
and Shane can't place it. He knows that something has happened because
Natasha has started to completely shut baby Jacob out of her life. She
still plays with him but she doesn't hold him or cradle him anymore. He
wishes he knew what happened during the fall that has made Natasha do
a complete 180 with their son.
"I'm sure she'd appreciate you checking in on her," Shane finally
says back to Victoria as he takes a bit of his salad.
"That didn't exactly answer the question, though," Victoria
replies to her. "How is she doing?"
Shane shrugs his shoulders. "Physically, she seems just fine. But
something is really bugging her."
"What do you mean?" Victoria asks him, as she grows uneasy.
"I don't know," Shane admits to her. "Ever since she fell
down those stairs, Natasha hasn't been the same woman. She isn't holding
Jacob, she barely even wants to look at him. I don't know if she's in
more pain than she's letting on and she's scared she will drop the baby
I just don't know."
Victoria gulps as she looks back at Shane. Victoria knows why Natasha
is depressed having been her doctor; the truth is, Natasha suffered a
miscarriage when she fell down the stairs. Natasha pleaded with Victoria
not to reveal anything to her family about losing the child and because
Victoria is bound by patient-doctor confidentiality, she can't say anything
even though she knows that Natasha needs support while she is grieving
the loss of the baby. Now hearing that Natasha is so depressed that she
can't even hold baby Jacob, Victoria realizes that it is far more serious
than what she originally thought.
"I'll tell you what," a guilty Victoria tells Shane. "After
my shift today, I'll stop by your house and see Natasha. Maybe as her
doctor, she'll confide in me and I can see if I can do anything to help."
Shane gets a small smile on his face. "I'd really appreciate that
Vic," he says back to her. "I want to help Natasha, I just have
no idea how. Any help would be really appreciated."
Victoria nods back to him. "I'll see what I can do Shane."
Scene Eight - The Calimo Mansion
Robbie knocks on Paige's bedroom door and then slowly opens it. He moves
inside as he can see Paige putting some of her belongings away in the
room that Bob gave to her. Paige turns and looks at Robbie.
"Dad?" she asks him quickly, forgetting that Robbie isn't really
her father. "I'm surprised that you came out here."
Robbie moves closer to Paige as he looks around the room. "I wanted
to make sure you got settled okay," he reveals to her. "You
know, the house isn't the same with you."
Paige smiles a little. "I've only been gone a day," she laughs
a little to him.
"I know but I miss you already," Robbie replies to her quickly.
"But I do like what you've done with this room."
"Thank you," she says back to him. "I hope you know why
I had to come and stay with Grandpa Bob. I just need time to figure things
Robbie nods back to her. "I get it. I know you've had the roughest
year of your life," he tells her. "I just hope you know that
you're home will always be at the house and as soon as you're ready, you
can come back home."
"Oh Daddy," Paige says as she rushes into his arms and hugs
him. "Thank you for being so understanding."
"I love you Paige and that will never change," Robbie replies
to her as he holds her in his arms. "You take all the time you need,
"I will," she replies to him, unaware that Bob is watching them
from the doorway. Bob sighs and moves away from the door, not being seen
by Robbie or Paige.
Scene Nine - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home
Dawn opens the door to her bedroom and quickly moves inside. She quickly
removes her candy striper uniform and grabs some jeans and slides into
them. She just finished a shift at the hospital and wants nothing more
than to try to meet up with Max to see if he can get stoned with her.
She has grown to really enjoy the numbing feeling that weed has been giving
her; with everything going on in her life, she feels like she needs the
escape from reality.
She can't help but think about Natasha and wonders how she is doing. She
was at the hospital when Natasha woke up after falling down the stairs.
Dawn closes her eyes and can still see Natasha falling because it happened
in front of Dawn's eyes. Only, Dawn had no idea that Natasha was pregnant
when she fell down. She would have done more to help Natasha had she known;
the last thing Dawn wanted was for an innocent baby to die because they
were having a fight.
"It's my fault that baby died," Dawn whispers to herself. "I
shouldn't have been fighting with Natasha. I shouldn't have told her that
I know the truth about her affair with Dad."
Dawn finds a sweater in her closet and pulls it over her head. "At
least Natasha doesn't remember what happened," she continues to say
to herself. "She doesn't remember why she was here. I have to make
sure she doesn't remember. She can't know the truth; she can't remember
that I know about the affair, it would ruin too many lives. God, I just
want this mess to go away."
Before she can say anything else, she hears the doorbell ring at the front
door. She quickly leaves her room and races the down the stairs. She opens
the front door and sees Natasha standing on the other side of the door.
"Natasha, what are you doing here?" Dawn asks her, shocked to
see the woman who had an affair with her father back at her house.
Natasha moves into the house and looks back at Dawn. "I needed to
see you," Natasha reveals to her as she walks into the living room.
"Are your parents' home?"
"No," Dawn replies to her as she follows Natasha into the living
room. "They're making funeral arrangements for my Grandfather."
"I heard that Reg passed away, I'm very sorry," Natasha says
back to her.
"Thank you," Dawn replies to her. "So, what brings you
Natasha looks back at Dawn and then looks over at the staircase where
she fell down. "I needed to see you," Natasha slowly says as
she moves to the stairs. She covers her mouth as she looks at the place
that changed her life. Natasha turns around and looks at Dawn. "I
remember," Natasha tells Dawn. "I remember the night of the
