Scene One - The Park

The sun shines down brightly in the park that is just off of the downtown of Twin Peaks. The Sugarbowl is on the corner of the park, so many citizens grab their cup of coffee and head into to the park for a walk. On a bench that looks out into the fast flowing river, Felicia, Tyler & Paige are sitting together, each with an iced coffee. With the weather being so beautiful, they all wanted something cool instead of hot to drink.

Felicia looks over at her granddaughter and wonders how she is holding up with everything that has happened in the last few weeks. First, by remembering everything that has happened with Leah's death, Felicia wouldn't blame anyone if they blamed her for Leah's death. And, more recently, Paige was forced to testify in court at Jeff's law suit against Robbie to get half of Leah's estate. Felicia can only imagine how difficult that was for Paige.

"You're pretty quiet this afternoon," Felicia finally says to Paige, who looks up from baby Blake, who is sleeping in the stroller in front of Tyler. "You must have a lot on your mind, but it's not good to keep it all inside. Why don't you talk to me and your Uncle?"

Paige takes a sip of her iced coffee and looks over at her Grandmother. She tries to put a smile on her face. "I just hope that everything will change now that Jeff won the lawsuit. You know? I want everything to go back to normal."

Tyler looks at Felicia then over at Paige. "Things will never go back to the normal that you want them to be, you know that right?" he asks her, knowing that Leah can never come back into their lives.

Paige uneasily nods back to them. "God, this is all my fault," Felicia suddenly says out loud to them. "If I hadn't gone to Lake Tahoe…"

"Stop that Mom," Tyler tells her, as he passes Blake his pacifier when he starts to wine a little in his sleep. "You can't blame yourself; no one else is blaming you for anything that happened. We all know who is to blame for what happened."

"Who is to blame?" Paige asks them, not knowing about Bob drugging Felicia leading up to Leah's death last year.

"No one," Tyler quickly tries to cover his tracks. The last thing he wants to do is tell Paige the truth; he can tell that Paige is enjoying living at the Calimo mansion and he doesn't want her to feel like she has nowhere to go. "I just meant it was a case of bad circumstance's."

Paige uneasily nods back to him. "Well, whatever. I just hope Jeff and Robbie can stop all this fighting. I hate feeling like I'm caught in the middle of their war."

"I know you do sweetheart," Felicia says back to her. "Just know that you have so many other people around you that love you and will support you with anything you need."

Paige smiles back at her Grandmother and her Uncle. "Thank you, I think I needed to hear just that."

Scene Two - The Calimo Mansion; The Garden

"Are you sure that we are allowed to be here?" Max asks Dawn as they lay near the large fountain and he passes a joint to her. He has never seen such a yard or a house like the Calimo Mansion before. He knows that they passed the security guards by coming on to the property further down by the forested area of the land but he hopes that they don't get caught.

Dawn takes the joint and takes a large puff of it. As she blows out the smoke, she looks over at her friend. "Of course we are allowed to be here. I'm practically going to be living here soon."

"Really? Did Paige actually say that her Grandpa would let you stay here?" he asks her back.

"Not exactly," Dawn replies as she rolls her eyes a little. "But Paige wouldn't let me down like that. She wouldn't have offered unless she knew Bob would say yes. Just relax, okay?"

"I am relaxing now that I'm getting high," Max says back to her with a smile on his face. "This is the life. Imagine being so rich that you could have this huge house. I bet they don't even use half of the rooms."

Dawn chuckles a little. "I've been inside this house. It is something else to see. They think they have all this power because they have money. But, they are just like you and me."

"Right?" Max replies to her as he takes another inhale of the weed.

"So," Dawn says as she rolls on to her side to face Max. "You and Paige," she says with a sly grin on her face.

"What about Paige and I?"

"Are you sure nothing is going on with the two of you?" Dawn asks him. "I mean, it may not be any of my business but you two seem close. I wouldn't be surprised if something more was happening with you two."

Max rolls over to face her and passes her the last of the joint. "Nothing is going on between us," he tells her. "She's not interested in me like that. I'm surprised you haven't picked up on who she has a crush on. She can't hide it very well."

Dawn finishes the joint and then puts it out on the side of the fountain before putting the butt in the water. She arches her eyebrow as she looks back at her friend. "Paige has a crush? My God, I've been so wrapped up in my own drama that I didn't even know. Who is this guy?"

Max shrugs his shoulders and laughs a little. "I mean, she hasn't actually said anything to me but everything she sees that doctor, you know her Uncle, she blushes a little. I think she likes him."

"Her Uncle? Wait, Shane? She has a crush on Shane?" Dawn asks him as she rolls over and starts to laugh, as the wheels in her head start to turn a little.

Scene Three - City Hall; Daisy's Office

"You left early this morning," Vinny announces to his fiancé as he opens Daisy's office door and moves inside. He looks at her for a moment and wonders if she is okay; he knows that she didn't sleep very well the night before because she tossed and turned. Then, she left the house early to come to work. "Is everything okay?"

Daisy sighs a little and looks up from the file in front of her. She knows that her mind has been racing since her family had a dinner at the Pampa Grill the other night; Frederick had stopped her and gave her a donation to the City; when Jemma spotted them she told Daisy that she didn't trust the man. This isn't the first time that she thought something was going on between Jemma and Frederick but when she asked Jemma, she said there was nothing to it.

"I don't know," Daisy admits back to her fiancé. "Something isn't right and I can't place it."

"What is this about?" he asks her as he moves closer to her. "I thought everything was going well again."

"It was," Daisy says back to him. "Until we had dinner at the Pampa Grill the other night."

"The night you got the donation from Frederick?" Vinny asks her she nods back to him. "What went wrong?"

"Jemma saw Frederick and I talking," she reveals to Vinny. "And then she warned me about getting involved with him. It just made me think that there was something about the two of them that they aren't telling us. I don't understand why she would not want me to get involved with someone she doesn't know."

Vinny puts his hands on her shoulders and starts to massage them a little. "You're tense about this."

"I don't like thinking that there's something going on in my family that I don't know about," she replies to him. "I wish I knew a way to get to the bottom of this."

"Maybe there is nothing to get to the bottom of," he suggests to her.

She shakes her head and stands up to face him. "No, I think there is something there. The look on Jemma's face said it all. Something is going on between her and Frederick. But what?"

Vinny shrugs his shoulders. "I wish I knew the answer."

Suddenly, Daisy's eyes light up. "That's it! I know exactly how to get to the bottom of this!"

Vinny arches his eye brow. "What is it?"

"I'm going to throw a dinner party, Jemma and Frederick will be in attendance. Then, I'll be able to get to the truth."

"Are you sure that's a good idea?" Vinny questions her.

"Yes," she nods back to him. "Together for an entire evening, there's no way they'd be able to keep the truth about their connection a secret any longer. And then, we can all move on with our lives."

"I hope you know what you're doing," Vinny says with a grin on his face. "And, I will help you with whatever you need to throw this party."

Scene Four - Robertson Enterprises; Trenyce's Office

"I hope you ain' too busy for a visitor this afternoon," Jemma says to Trenyce as she pushes her office door open and looks at her great niece. Jemma had wanted to touch base with Trenyce to see if she has given any more thought to finding her own child and letting go of the quest to get Andrew back from Savannah.

Trenyce finishes pouring herself a glass of water and instead passes it to Jemma. "I'm always free to see you," Trenyce says back to her Aunt. She pours herself another glass of water. "What brings you by? I'm guessing it's more than just saying hello."

"You know me too well child," Jemma replies to her as she takes a sip of her water.

"Let's have a seat," Trenyce tells her as they move to the large sofa in the office. "What's going on Aunt Jemma?"

"I'm just wonderin' if you've made any decision' regardin' findin' your real child," Jemma says to her. "You seemed taken aback when I first suggested it a couple of weeks ago."

Trenyce nods back to her and takes a drink of her water. "I was," Trenyce admits to her. "It had never dawned on me that I have a baby out there. I was so focused on Andrew and my love for him."

"But you know, Andrew belongs with Miss Savannah. She is that boy' mother!"

"I know, I know," Trenyce waves her hand, not wanting Jemma to get worked up over it. "And, I've been thinking about my child ever since you told me. I even told Chris about it."

"And, what did he say?" Jemma asks, half rolling her eyes as she isn't the biggest fan of Chris because of how his marriage to Daisy ended.

"He was on board with finding our baby," Trenyce reveals to her. "And then, Vinny offered to help us find our baby."

"He did! That man is all kinds of good," Jemma smiles. She looks over at Trenyce, who doesn't seem to be as happy as she is. She immediately arches her eyebrow. "What is it Miss Trenyce? What's wrong?"

Trenyce puts her water down as she feels her hand start to tremble. She looks up at her Aunt with water in her eyes. "I'm scared. I'm so scared about what we will find. There's a child out there that must think I abandoned him or her. I don't know, Jemma. I'm just scared of what we will find."

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

"I can't believe that you asked Dawn what was going on between us," Natasha says to her husband, as Shane just revealed that he questioned Dawn about the night Natasha fell down the accident. Natasha knows that she has been different since the accident, but she also knows that she can't let Shane ever know the truth about what is happening because he would never forgive her for having an affair with Adam, getting pregnant and then miscarrying his baby when she fell down the stairs. The fact that Shane questioned Dawn scares Natasha a little because it means that Shane could learn the truth.

"Why?" he snaps back at her as he runs his hands through his hair. Shane has been trying to be supportive of Natasha since her accident but he doesn't know how much more he can handle of her not confiding in him and rejecting baby Jacob. Their son needs their mother and he doesn't know how much more he can take. "I am tired of not knowing what happened. I'm tired of you shutting me out! I'm tired of you not wanting to hold our son! I need to know what happened that night, the entire story!"

"You know the entire story," Natasha yells back at him. "I went over to the Black house, I fell down the stairs. I'm sorry that I haven't been myself since that accident but I don't know what else you want from me."

"I want the truth!" Shane tells her. "I know something more is happening with you, Natasha. I don't know why suddenly everything has become such a big secret with you!"

"Nothing is a secret. I'm fine! I'm trying to be FINE!" she yells at him. "Jesus Christ," she tries to calm herself down as she moves to the bar and makes herself a drink.

"Look, I get that you went through something that no one should have to go through Nat," Shane lowers his voice. "I'm just telling you, as your husband, I don't know how much more of this I can take. I'm at the end of my rope."

Natasha turns to him as a tear falls down her cheek. She quickly wipes it away. "Okay, okay," she says as she tries to smile. "Going forward, I'll be my old self, okay? Just know that I'm fine. I'm trying to be fine. And it's nothing you have done. It's me…I'm trying, Shane. I am really trying."

Shane moves in and hugs his wife. "I'm sorry for yelling. I hate fighting with you."

"I hate it too."

"Let's try to get this back on track?" he asks her as she nods back to him. In his mind, he knows that he still has to get to the bottom of things; he just hopes that Natasha will start to get back to her old self in the meantime.

Scene Six - The Calimo Mansion

Paige walks down the hallway of the mansion towards her room, feeling better about things than she has in a while. Seeing Felicia and Tyler really helped her put things into perspective about Jeff and Robbie. Even if they continue to fight, she does have other member of her family that will support her. She reaches her bedroom door and opens it, quickly startled by what she sees inside.

"Dawn?" she asks, as her friend is laying on her bed reading a magazine. "What on earth are you doing here?"

"I was in the garden and decided I would stop by and say hi. Max was here too but he had to leave," Dawn says back to her friend. "I hope you don't mind."

"No, of course not," Paige replies to her. "I just wasn't expecting it, that's all."

"Did your Grandpa agree to let me move in her yet?"

Paige moves a piece of hair behind her ear and gulps a little. "I haven't had time to ask him. Between the trial and then not seeing him, it just hasn't come up."

"Okay, but you will still ask him, right?" Dawn presses her.

"Of course, I will," Paige tells her.

"Good. I heard something today and I was wondering if it was true or not," Dawn says to her friend, as Paige looks at her.

"What did you hear?"

"That you have a crush on Shane Glubbs," Dawn continues as Paige's eyes open wider. "I can take it by the look on your face that it's true."

Paige blushes and stutters a little. "I… I don't know what you're talking about!"

"It's okay, Paige," Dawn tells her as she moves off the bed. "I think it's great. We all have our first crushes."

"He's married," Paige says back to her, admitting that she does have a crush on the older doctor. "And to my Dad's sister! It's so wrong."

"It's not wrong," Dawn replies to her as she looks Paige in the eyes. "You can't control you have feelings for. And, I think you should go for it. I think you should make a play for the doctor!"

Scene Seven - Robertson Enterprises; Dominick's Office

"We need to talk and it can't wait," Robbie announces as he opens the door to Dominick's office, who is sitting at his desk looking at some files.

Dominick looks up and nods his head back to Robbie. "Hello to you too, Robbie," Dominick says back to him.

"I need to know where we stand on this plan to get revenge on Bob," Robbie tells him. Robbie is still livid that Jeff was able to win half of Leah's estate back from him; he knows that none of this would be happening if Leah was still alive; and he blames Bob for the death of his ex-wife.

Dominick looks at him and thinks back to the other day when he was walking up to Tyler's office and he spotted his son kissing Kim, Bob's wife. Thinking quickly, he got a snapped a picture of the two of them. He knows that he could use that as a part of his revenge on his rival. Like Robbie, Dominick blames Bob for the death of his daughter.

"I know that you want there to be some big plan Robbie, and I don't blame you," Dominick cryptically tells him as he stands up and moves to the bar. He pours himself and Robbie a drink and passes it to Robbie. "But, I have something that will hurt Bob in the best possible way. It's just the beginning of what I have planned but it's a good start."

Robbie lifts his glass to Dominick and they cheers. "That's exactly what I want to hear. I want my father to pay for everything he has done."

"Oh, he will," Dominick says with a little grin on his face before he takes a sip of his drink.

Scene Eight - The Calimo Mansion

Bob sits in the living room of the mansion looking over some files for Roboto. While he is looking at the file, though, his mind is actually on his wife, Kim. He knows that he gave her an ultimatum: give up baby Blake and they could make their marriage work. He hasn't heard from her about the situation yet but he also realizes that a lot has been going on, with Andy getting in a car accident and such. He hopes that he hears an answer from her soon; he would love nothing more than to have his wife back and rub that into Dominick and Tyler's faces.

He looks to the foyer when he hears a noise in there. "Rosario? Is that you?" he asks as he looks to the foyer. When no one replies, he stands up and moves to the door way. He sees Kim standing there with a suitcase. Immediately, he thinks that she has decided to move back into the mansion.

"Kimberly," Bob smiles to her as he then looks to the suitcase. "I'm guessing this means you are moving home? Welcome back, my love."

He moves closer to her but she puts her hand up to stop him. "This isn't what you think it is," she says in a whisper back to him.

He arches his eyebrow. "What do you mean?"

"For so long Bob, all I have wanted is for our marriage to be back on track. I have wanted to prove to you that I love you and only you."

"Yes, I know," he nods back to her.

"Let me finish, please, Bob," she tells him as he looks at her. "I wanted to be with you more than anything else in the world. I wanted to make our marriage work. And then you asked me to give my son. I can't believe you asked me that considering how much you love your family."

"I would do anything for my family," he replies to her.

"Exactly," she says back to him as a single tear falls from her eye. "And that's why, I can't believe you asked me to give up my son. He is my family! I can't give him up Bob. And the fact that you asked me to do that, just proves that I don't know who you are at all."

"Then why do you have a suitcase here?" Bob asks her.

"I'm not moving back in, I'm collecting the last of my belongings from the house. I'm moving out of the guest house too. I want to be as far as way from you as I possibly can!"

"You don't mean that," Bob says back to her.

"Oh, but I do, Bob," she sneers back to him. "I would do a lot but I won't give up my baby. Not now, not ever. This is goodbye, forever."

Bob folds his arms across his chest and watches as she leaves the house. When the door slams shut, he moves back into the living room and walks to the bar. He pours himself a drink of brandy and slams it back in one gulp. Then, he finds himself pouring another one.
