Scene One - The Sugarbowl

"I'm glad that you stayed over last night," Jeff tells Meggan as they sit across from each other in the back booth of the coffeehouse, sharing coffees with each other. Meggan smiles at the thought of the previous night when she and Jeff made passionate love again. While she had been upset with him for shutting her out during the anniversaries of Noah and Leah's deaths, he has asked her for another chance at their budding relationship. Meggan couldn't help but give him to him because she has fallen head over heels in love with Jeff, even though he is still struggling to get over his dead wife.

"I'm happy you asked me to stay," she smiles back to him as they lock eyes. Despite just having a night of passion, she could go for another round with him. She can't seem to get enough of her new lover.
"You have that look in your eye," he laughs to her. "Didn't I give you enough last night?"

She grabs his hand and purrs. "Just take it as a compliment that I can't get enough of you."

Jeff puts his head down as he blushes a little. It had been a long time since a woman has wanted him this much. Even while he was with Leah, it had become so familiar. These new, exciting times with Meggan definitely have given him new life.

"Anyways," she continues as she realizes that she is making him blush. "What else is going on with you? Have you seen Paige lately?"

Jeff looks up and takes a drink of his coffee as he recalls the other day when he went to the Calimo mansion and he and his daughter shared a close moment. This had been a surprise to him because Paige had been very cold to him and Robbie since she had to testify in court when Jeff sued Robbie for half of Leah's estate.

"I actually saw her the other day," Jeff replies to Meggan. "And we actually shared a close moment. I think it was a turning point in our relationship."

"I can't tell you how happy I am for you," Meggan smiles to him. "I know how much your daughter means to you."

Before Jeff can say anything else, they both look up from their seats and see Paige standing at their table with her arms folded across her chest. "What the hell is going on here?" Paige asks them as she looks down at her father.


Dominick puts some cream into his coffee at the coffee bar and then picks up his cup to taste it. Once he realizes it has all the cream he needs, he sets his cup back down and puts a lid on it. He turns and is about to leave when the door to the coffeehouse opens and he sees Eva walk in. He hasn't seen his lover as much as he'd like to lately but that is partly because he has been so busy with Robin and Bob that he just hasn't been able to make time for her. But with everything seemingly coming together, he can't help but get a smile on his face.

"Well, hello gorgeous," he says as he walks up to her.

Eva looks at the man that she loves and studies his face and body language. She can't help but recall the last time she saw Dominick. He was eating dinner at the Pampa Grill with Felicia and Tyler and he was gloating that the best thing in the world had just happened. Eva didn't talk to Dominick the night at the Pampa Grill because she had just come from the hospital because she found Bob in his office after he suffered a stroke. She can't help but wonder if Dominick had something to do with Bob's stroke.

"Hello to you to," she replies to him. "What's gotten you in such a good mood?"

"Can't I be happy to see the woman that I love?" Dominick asks her back, not wanting her to know that he was with Bob when he had his stroke.

"Have you heard what happened the night of the summer storm?" Eva asks him, knowing what she heard at the Pampa Grill. When he doesn't reply, she decides to fill him in. "Bob had a stroke. He is still in critical condition."

Dominick doesn't flinch at the news which causes Eva to arch her eyebrow. "And, just so you know, Dominick," Eva continues to tell him. "I was at the Pampa Grill the other night when you were having dinner with Tyler and Felicia. I heard what you said. I heard every last word that you said."


"I see your father over there," Felicia tells Tyler as they sit at two of the window seats as she takes a sip of her hot chocolate.

Tyler looks over his shoulder and spots Dominick talking with Eva. "We shouldn't interrupt them," he replies to his mother. "They look like they are having a serious conversation."

"I wanted to tell you something," she says back to him quickly. "And I don't want your father to know about it."

Tyler arches his eyebrow as he looks at his mother. "What is going on?"

Felicia sighs and looks back at her son. "Frederick asked me to go back under hypnosis to see if I have any other memories that I haven't been able to remember on my own and I've decided to go ahead with it."

Tyler nods back to his mother. "And why wouldn't you want Dad to know about this?"

"He wasn't pleased with the idea," Felicia admits to Tyler. "But if there's anything else I'm not remembering, I have to know. I don't want any other surprises."

"That makes sense and you know you have my support on this," Tyler smiles back to her.

Felicia nods her head back to him. "Thank you sweetheart. Now, it's time I ask you about you and Kim. Last time we spoke, you said that you had hopes of things working out between the two of you."

Tyler can't help but smile as he thinks about the night of the summer storm when Kim came to his place and they ended up sharing a kiss after she revealed to him that she had left Bob. He hasn't seen her since but he has his hopes up that things may work out for them after all.

"I think we have a real chance," Tyler tells his mother. "I haven't seen her since the storm but that night we did share a kiss."

Felicia gets a huge grin on her face. "I can't believe this! This means that you may be able to give Blake the family that he deserves! Oh, Tyler, you've made me so happy today!"

Tyler laughs a little as Felicia pulls him into a hug. "I love you Mom, thanks so much for your support."

Scene Two - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Kim slowly opens the door to Bob's hospital room and quickly looks at the bed where her husband is laying. She can see that he is unconscious, which the doctors have said is natural because he has lost a lot of oxygen to his brain when he had his stroke. He has tubes going into his arm and his nose. Kim can't believe that the powerful Bob Calimo has been left in this state.

She moves closer to the bed as her mind races about everything that has happened between her and Bob the last few months and she wonders how they got to this place. She sits next her unconscious husband and grabs his hand. She recalls how Craig said he could have a long recovery ahead of him but he has to wake up first.

"I hope you can hear me Bob," she whispers as she feels her eyes swell with some water. "Because I need you to come back to me. I need you to be okay. This…it can't end like this. We still have so much left to say to each other."

Kim looks at her husband and realizes that there is no change in his condition. She squeezes his hand as a tear falls out of her eye and rolls down her cheek. "I hate so much of what happened between us Bob," she says through her tears. "I know that I am to blame for so much of it because of my affair with Tyler but…" she continues as she wipes her eye. "I don't know. I don't think this can be the end. You have to come back to me. You have to come back so we can still have conversations. And a brandy by the fire in the mansion… please, Bob, please come back to me."


Andy walks into the waiting room and sees Robbie sitting in a chair. While he and his father haven't been seeing eye to eye lately, to the extent that Robbie was helping Dominick plan revenge on Bob, he hasn't left the hospital since Bob had his stroke. He is worried sick that something bad will happen and he can't bare that, especially since he was helping Dominick. He has to ensure his Dad is okay.

Andy looks at the police office and clears his throat causing Robbie to look over at the young man. "Andy," Robbie says as he stands up. "I'm glad that you came."

Andy uneasily nods back to him as he recalls getting a phone call from Robbie asking him to meet him at the hospital. He thinks he knows what this is about since Kim told him that Savannah died when they were at the cabin together the night of the summer storm.

"I'm sorry that we couldn't meet at my office but with my father in the hospital, I wanted to say close by," Robbie explains to Andy.

"Kim told me about Bob," Andy finally speaks to him. "I am keeping him in my prayers."

"Thank you for that," Robbie replies to him. "There is another reason why I asked you here though."

Andy looks down for a moment as he recalls Kim telling him how Savannah died while they were at the cabin during the storm. He is assuming Robbie is investigating the death. He has to ensure Robbie knows that this was an accident.

"I think I know why you called me here," Andy tells him. "Savannah Pherson died the night of the summer storm."

"Yes, she did. And I need to know exactly what happened," Robbie tells Andy as he arches his eyebrow.


"Well, I'm sorry that you missed the dinner party but I am glad that you're okay," Frederick tells Lukas as they walk through the hallway of the hospital. Frederick had an early meeting with a patient at the hospital and had asked Lukas to meet him so they could talk about where Lukas was the night of the storm that caused him to miss the dinner party at Daisy's. He was shocked to learn that his son was trapped in an elevator at Robertson Enterprises.

"Thanks," Lukas tells his father. "The elevator wasn't stuck for that long but long enough that afterwards, I just wanted to head home."

"I can understand that," Frederick replies to him. "I'm just glad that you're okay."

Before he can reply they stop outside the waiting room where Andy and Robbie are talking. They pause when they hear the news that Savannah died. Frederick doesn't stop to think, barging into the room and interrupting Andy and Robbie.

"Did I just hear correctly?" Frederick demands to know. "Savannah Pherson is dead?"

Robbie and Andy turn around and look at Frederick and Lukas. "I'm afraid so," Robbie informs him. "The night of the summer storm, she went to the Calimo cabin with Andy. She went to have a bath and a radio fell into the bathtub. She was electrocuted. Her death has been ruled an accident."

Frederick covers his mouth in shock. Lukas immediately comes up to his father and puts his hand on his shoulder. "I don't believe this," Frederick says in a whisper as tears fill his eyes. "I can't believe my beautiful Savannah is dead!"

Scene Three - The Pampa Grill

"I wanted to talk to you about something specific," Daisy tells Jemma as the waiter seats them at a table for an early lunch. Daisy hasn't been able to stop thinking about the dinner party and then the day after when she asked her Aunt if she had a good time and Jemma looked like she was lost in space.

"What's on your mind, child?" Jemma asks her niece as she takes a sip of water.

"The night of the party," Daisy cuts to the chase, needing answers about Jemma's potential past with Frederick. "You seemed to be reserved when I asked if you had a good time. Is everything okay?"

Jemma looks back at Daisy and knows that she can't possibly tell her the truth about what happened between her and Frederick. What happened in the past has to stay there and Daisy, or anyone, can never know the full truth.

"I'm fine, Miss Daisy," Jemma tells her. "And you have to let this go. You can't keep askin' me if I'm okay because I am fine. It's gettin' a lil tirin' tellin' you I'm okay."

Daisy looks back at her Aunt before she reaches over the table and grabs her hand. "I'm sorry if I am worrying. I just want to make sure that you're happy and having a good time in Twin Peaks."

"I'm fine, I promise you," Jemma fakes a smile on her face. "Now, where is this fiancé of yours? I thought he was joinin' us? It shouldn't take him so long to park the car!"

Daisy chuckles a little. "I'm sure he'll be right here. What would you like for lunch?"

Before Jemma can reply, Daisy's phone rings. "Hello," she answers as her smile quickly fades off her face. "Trenyce, what are you talking about? … My God, yes, I'll be right there. Hang tight, okay?"

"What's wrong?" Jemma asks Daisy, as she hangs up her phone.

"It's Savannah," Daisy tells her as they lock eyes. "She's dead."


Vinny opens the door to the restaurant and sees Meggan standing waiting to be seated. Meggan turns and sees her former husband. She left Jeff and Paige at the coffeehouse to have a talk when Paige interrupted her and Jeff's morning. She decided to come to the restaurant for a real meal since she hasn't had one since the day before.

"Well, this is a surprise," she smiles to him as they share a quick hug. "What are you doing here alone?"

Vinny exits their embrace. "I'm meeting Daisy and Jemma," he reveals to her. "I just parked the car."

"Ah, so you can't join me then?" she smirks back to him.

"Another time, and I'd be interested. I haven't seen you since the night of the dinner party. Did you have a good time?"

Meggan feels the blood drain from her face as she recalls over hearing Frederick and Jemma talking in the study the night of the party. She still can't believe what she overheard; in fact, she has been trying to forget everything she heard that night.

"Are you okay?" he asks her quickly. "You look a little pale."

"I'm fine," she reassures him. "I'm just hungry, I guess. And yes, I did have a good time. Please tell Daisy that I had a nice time as well."

Vinny arches his eyebrow. "I shall. Nice seeing you Meggan."

"You too Vinny," she replies as she takes a deep breath as he moves to his table to meet Daisy and Jemma.

Scene Four - The Sugarbowl

"I'm sorry that Meggan couldn't stay with us," Jeff tells Paige as they sit across from each other in the back booth where he had been sitting with his girlfriend. "But I'm glad that we have some more time together. I really feel like we had a nice time the other day at the mansion."

Paige slightly rolls her eyes. "We did, Dad. I'm just…"

"Nothing," Jeff cuts her off. "I'm glad that we can finally try to put the past behind us and move forward. This family needs to move forward from the past and all the hurt that we have endured the last year or so."

Paige shakes her head and looks back at him. "You don't get it do you?" she snaps at him. "We can never move forward as long as you're with her."

"What do you mean?" he asks, surprised by her outburst.

"As long as you're dating Meggan, the woman who killed Noah, I don't think we will ever be able to move forward as a family."

Scene Five - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Robbie walks down the hallway on his way to visit Bob as he thinks about what he will tell his father, who is unconscious still from his stroke. Robbie feels so bad about his role in Bob's stroke; he knows that Dominick must have said or done something to his father to cause this to happen. He can't stop thinking about the phone call that he got from Dominick right after Bob's stroke telling him that their plan may have worked.

"What did you do Dominick?" he asks himself as he stops outside Bob's door. He is about to open the door when he sees Dominick appear at the end of the hallway.

"Dominick?" he calls out as he rushes towards him.

Dominick stops and looks at Robbie and gets a grin on his face. "Robbie, how the hell are you?"

"You better tell me what you did to my father and you better tell me now," Robbie demands from Dominick.

Dominick chuckles at him. "Do you really have to ask?"

"YES!" Robbie yells at him. "What did you do to my father?"
