Scene One - Raven's Meadow Mental Institution

"This can't be possible!" Cory says as he reads over the documents that are in his hands. He looks up and sees Melissa smiling at him with a smug look on her face. He can't believe that Robin's mother somehow convinced her daughter to sign over power of attorney to her. That means that he has no control over what happens to Robin while she is in the hospital and he knows that Robin has been receiving drugs that alters her mood. He knows that he has to do something to stop this from happening but he has no idea what that is.

"It is very possible," Melissa continues to taunt him. "You see, my daughter finally saw things my way. I've been here the entire time she has been in the hospital Cory. Where have you been all this time?" she asks him, knowing very well that he was having an affair with Rebecca while Robin was trying to get better.

Cory shakes his head back at her. "You won't get away with this!" he tells her back. "Robin wasn't in the right state of mind when she signed these papers. I can take this to any court and have this overturned."

Melissa laughs a little. "You won't do that though," she replies to him. "Because then everyone will know what's really been going on with you. What you have been up to while your wife was sick in the hospital."

Cory shakes his head in horror as he realizes that Melissa knows about his affair with Rebecca. "How do you know about any of that?"

"I have my ways," Melissa says back to him. "Now, look, you're probably embarrassing yourself in front of Robin's doctor. You should stop this before you continue to make yourself look like a bigger fool."

Cory turns around and sees Robin's doctor. "How can you allow her to do this? Don't you understand what you're doing to my wife? Don't you have some medical license to uphold?"

The woman nods back to Cory. "I am doing what I think is best for my patient, Mr. Calvin. I'm sorry you don't see that."

Cory looks down, stunned by what the doctor is telling him. He is about to reply when he sees something on the doctor's desk that makes the blood drain from his face. "My God, it can't be…"

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

"How many people can this table actually seat?" Daisy asks Vinny as she stands in the large dining room of the mansion and looks at the table. She has been planning a dinner party with her family and Frederick's so she can try to get to the bottom of Jemma's past with Frederick. While Daisy has no idea if the two actually have a past, there is something telling her that they do have a connection; how she is determined to figure out what it could possibly be.

"How many people do you want to be sitting here?" Vinny ask her back with a grin on his face. "I get fit as many people as we need here."

"Well," Daisy starts to count in her head. "I suppose that makes it easy then. I want all of us here and of course, Frederick's family."

"Does that mean you're going to invite Meggan too?" Vinny asks her, surprised that Daisy would invite her former rival to a dinner party.

Daisy pauses and then looks over at him. "Yes, it does," she admits to him. "The last few times I've seen her, we have been civil to each other. Mostly because she has stopped playing games and trying to get you away from me."

"There was no chance that would ever happen," Vinny grins back to her as he leans in and gives her a kiss on the lips. "You're the only woman for me."

"I know," Daisy smiles back to him. "Meggan is the one who had to learn that. And besides, she is Frederick's daughter. And, if I'm trying to figure out what's going on between him and Aunt Jemma, then Meggan will be here."

"Do you have any idea of how you will get the truth to come at the party?" Vinny asks her again.

Daisy shakes her head no. "That's not important right now," she admits to him. "What is important is finalizing these details so everything is perfect. Then, we can worry about getting the truth to come out."

Vinny uneasily nods his head back to her. "You're the boss, just tell me what to do."

Scene Three - The Pampa Grill

"I hope that's nothing important," Donovan tells Trenyce, who quickly grabs her telephone when she hears an incoming text message. Donovan, Trenyce and Savannah are all sitting at a table waiting for Kim to arrive; they have to tell her that they saw Andy drinking again the other night at Bar Code. After Andy's car accident, he claimed that he would stop drinking but it's clear that it hasn't happened. The three friends know that they have to do something to help Andy before it is too late; he's already been in the hospital a few times because of his drinking, they worry that something else will happen and he will be seriously injured. And, he already got off scott free from the police with his car crash; the next time, he might not be so lucky.

Trenyce looks up after reading the text message. "No, it's nothing," she tells them. "My Aunt is having some dinner party and she basically demanded my presence. Whatever we do with Kim and Andy, I'll have to make sure I'm at the dinner party."

"That's fine," Savannah tells her. "We don't know what Kim will say just yet."

"What I will say about what?" Kim asks the three of them as she arrives at the table. "Sorry, I'm late. I had to drop Blake off with Tyler."

"Don't apologize," Donovan tells her as Kim sits at the empty chair at the table. "We were just catching up while we were waiting."

"Well, you have my attention," Kim tells them. "What is this about? Or do I have to ask?"

"It's about Andy," Trenyce begins to tell Kim. "The other night, the three of us went to Bar Code for a drink."

"And, we saw Andy there," Savannah continues to tell Kim the story. "And, he was drinking, a lot. I know that he told you that he was going to drink anymore after his car accident, but that's clearly not the case."

"We are worried about him, Kim," Donovan says to her. "And we think that it's time that we step up and do something to help him. He can't keep going down this path."

Kim looks down for a moment and feels bad for not being there more for Andy. "This is all my fault," she whispers to them. "I've been so busy dealing with my own personal drama that I have been ignoring my brother."

"It's not your fault," Savannah replies to her. "We've all been busy but that doesn't mean that it's too late. We can still help Andy get over this. We just have to stick together."

Kim nods as she fights tears in her eyes. "Okay, so what do you think we should do?"

"I think we should have an intervention," Donovan reveals to her. "If we all stick together and tell him that we aren't going to stand for this anymore, maybe he will realize how serious it is."

Kim nods again to him. "Yea, I like that idea. But we have to do it somewhere safe and away from everything."

"How about the Calimo cabin?" Trenyce suggests to everyone. "It's remote, we could be alone and we wouldn't be interrupted."

"That sounds perfect," Kim tells them. "Let's do this guys, let's make Andy realize how serious this is."


"How have you been doing since the anniversary of Leah's death?" Frederick asks Felicia as they sit together in the restaurant and are enjoying a light lunch. He knows that the one year mark of Leah's passing must have been extremely hard on Felicia, especially since she just remembered all of the events leading up to Leah's death. Felicia played such a key role in Leah's demise that she must be struggling on some level with everything that happened.

Felicia takes a bite of her salad before she looks up at her doctor. "It was difficult, of course," she tells him. "But you know, it was nice that the entire family got together to remember her. We are all we have left, so I appreciated that."

Frederick looks back at her and knows when she says the entire family was there that it means Dominick was also there. He wishes that he could forget what Felicia told him while she was under hypnosis: that she is still in love with her husband and she wants to make their marriage work. She hasn't said anything out of hypnosis, but Frederick knows that the subconscious doesn't lie in the state of hypnosis. He has longed for the chance to be the man that Felicia wants to be with. As he looks at her, he can't help but still long for that. The wheels in his head slowly start to turn.

"Family is the most important thing that any of us have," he finally tells her. "I'm glad you guys were able to spend that day together. And, believe me, when I say that it will get easier."

"I know it will," Felicia tells him. "I think it's just because I just remembered everything that happened in Lake Tahoe…it made the day harder."

Frederick reaches over and grabs her hand. "What if there's more?"

"What do you mean?" she asks him.

"I mean, what if there's more to your memories? We could always put you back under hypnosis to see if you have any other memories?" he suggests to her, as he arches his eyebrow.

Just then, Dominick and Eva approach the table as they were about to have lunch together. Dominick couldn't help but overhear what Frederick just suggested.

"Why the hell would Felicia have to go back under hypnosis?" Dominick asks him, glaring at his rival. He doesn't know what Frederick is up to, but he doesn't like the idea of her going back under. "She's already remembered everything that happened in Lake Tahoe!"

"Dominick," Felicia begins to tell him. "Frederick was just saying that I could go back under to see if there's anything else that my subconscious hasn't allowed me to remember. I hadn't given him an answer yet but I'm thinking it may be a good idea. What's wrong with one more time?"

"I don't think it's necessary," Dominick replies to her. "You know what happened and you've been torturing yourself with guilt. Why go through this again?"

"I tend to agree with Dominick," Eva chimes in. "Felicia, you should focus on healing now. There is nothing else to remember."

"That's the thing," Felicia says back to them, before she looks over at Frederick. "We don't know if there is anything else to remember or not. Going back under hypnosis may answer that question for me."

Dominick glares at Frederick again, still thinking that there is something more to the doctor's idea. "We don't have to make a decision right now," Frederick tells them. "Let's all just think about it, okay?"

"I will think of nothing else," Felicia smiles back to him, as Dominick grows more frustrated about the situation.

Scene Four - The Calimo Mansion

Paige walks into the living room with a large iced tea as the summer sun shines through the French doors. She looks out into the garden and then over to the pool. She nods to herself, thinking that she would love to lay in the sun with her book for the afternoon and try to forget some of her problems that she is having currently in her life.

She hears the front door close so she turns around and sees Robbie enter the living room. "Paige, I'm glad that you're home."

Paige arches her eyebrow and looks back at Robbie. "You haven't been responding to my texts or picking up your phone to me. I was worried about you," he admits to her as he moves closer to her.

She sets her iced tea down and looks at the man she believed was her father for many years. "I haven't had anything to say to you," she admits to him. "I moved here to have my space, remember?"

"How could I forget?" he asks her. "I was just hoping…"

Before he can finish his sentence, Jeff moves into the living room as well. He stops when he sees Paige and Robbie talking. "Looks like we had the same idea today, Robbie," Jeff announces as Paige and Robbie turn to see him.

"Great," Paige rolls her eyes. "Now you're here to check up on me too?"

"You weren't answering my texts to you," Jeff says, echoing Robbie's concerns. "I wanted to make sure that you were okay."

"As you both can see, I'm fine! I don't know what the hell you expect from me!" Paige says as she raises her voice at them a little.

"What is all of this about?" Jeff asks her, worried about her lashing out at them.

"Like you have to ask?" Paige replies to him. "You two forced me to testify in court over a stupid house! You two have taken this fighting to a whole new level! Do you have any idea how scared I was? Do you have any idea how embarrassed I was? Did you even care? No, of course not! All either of you wanted was a house! My mother's house! I can't deal with either of you right now, I just can't!"

"Paige," Robbie says as he moves closer to her, hoping to calm her down.

"NO! Stay away from me! Just leave me alone," Paige says as a tear falls down her cheek. "I want both of you to leave me alone!"

Robbie looks back at Jeff and then they both look at Paige, who is crying now. "Please, just leave…." Paige whispers as she covers her mouth. "And leave me alone."

Scene Five - Raven's Meadow Mental Institution

"It can't be," Cory whispers in horror as he looks at the doctor's name plate on her desk. It reads "Dr. Caroline Fitzpatrick". "That name…"

"You're finally clueing in," Melissa says as she claps to him. "Robin's doctor is Caroline Fitzpatrick."

Caroline moves out from behind her desk and looks at Cory. He suddenly sees the resemblance of the man who kidnapped Robin, held her hostage and then delivered their stillborn daughter.

"Your wife killed my brother, Liam," Caroline tells Cory. "So yes, I'm doing everything I possibly can to help my patient get everything she possibly deserves."

Cory looks back to her in horror and then over to Melissa. "You won't get away with this! I promise you, you won't get away with this!"
