Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Robin paces back and forth in the hospital waiting room hoping to hear
something from one of the doctors on duty this evening. She recalls how
after she and Cory escaped the mental hospital, Caroline emerged and told
them to stop. Instead of listening, Cory and Robin decided to make a run
for it; Caroline then shot her gun, hitting Cory in his back. Robin gets
tears in her eyes as she thinks about the blood that her husband was losing
while they were waiting for the ambulance. Thankfully, Robin thinks, Melissa
was there and she called for help. She looks down and sees her mother
half asleep in the chair, as she is also waiting for some kind of update.
"He has to pull through," Robin whispers to herself, as she
thinks about the ambulance arriving in and rushing Cory into surgery.
She just hopes that they got her husband back in time before it is too
"Robin?" a voice calls from the entrance way of the waiting
room, causing her to turn around and see who is behind her.
She immediately rushes over and hugs Dominick. "Oh Daddy," she
says as he holds her.
"I've missed you so much my beautiful girl," he tells her as
he holds her.
"I've missed you too," she replies to him as they exit their
embrace. "I'm sorry that this is how we had to see each other for
the first time in awhile."
"Nonsense," Dominick waves his hand. "How is Cory? Have
you heard anything at all?"
Robin shakes her head. "Nothing and I'm trying not to worry but
"Well, what happened exactly?" Rebecca asks, coming up behind
Robin and Dominick. Rebecca knows that she may not exactly be welcome
at the hospital but she couldn't stay away; she has to make sure Cory
"It all happened so fast," Robin tells them. "Cory and
I, we had devised this plan for me to escape the hospital. Once we did,
we started to run
"Then someone shot at you?" Dominick asks his daughter.
Robin nods her head as a tear falls down her cheek. "My doctor, Caroline,
she had a gun and
Rebecca covers her mouth in shock as she realizes that Caroline shot Cory.
She knew that Caroline and Melissa would have gone to great lengths to
keep Cory and Robin at the hospital but she never thought that Caroline
would resort to violence.
"I can't believe this," she finally says to Dominick and Robin.
Dominick looks back at her and then over at Melissa, who is waking up
from her sleep. "I think I can believe it," he mumbles to himself.
"What are you talking about Daddy?" Robin asks him. "Why
do you believe that this could have happened? What do you know that I
Scene Two - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home
"You're a disgusting whore!" Dawn spits at Natasha, who is still
holding her face from a slap that Dawn gave her after she revealed the
truth to Adam and Helen that Dawn was blackmailing her after the fall
down the stairs.
"How dare you!" Natasha yells back at her, before Adam and Helen
come up and grab Dawn and move her away from Natasha.
"I think it's best that you leave now, Natasha," Adam tells
her. "And, we are so sorry for what has happened."
"I am NOT sorry!" Dawn yells at everyone. "She's the reason
that everything bad is happening! She's the cause of all of this pain
"Dawn Marie, that is enough!" Helen scolds her daughter as Adam
walks Natasha to the door.
"I'm so sorry," Adam tells her as Natasha opens the front door
and then looks back at him.
"Don't be," she says biting her lip. "I just hope your
family can recover from this. I'm am sorry for causing all this pain."
"We did this together, it's not all you and it certainly doesn't
excuse Dawn's behaviour."
Natasha nods her head back to him before she leaves the house. Adam shuts
the front door and takes a deep breath. He has no idea how he is going
to handle his out of control daughter. He moves back into the living room
and sees Helen and Dawn talking.
"I think it's time we get a few things straight," he announce
as the women turn and look back at him. "And no one is leaving until
Scene Three - Wild Night
"I'll have a dry martini, please," Craig tells the bartender
as he sits at the bar, fresh from his shift at the hospital. Craig doesn't
always feel like he needs a drink after work but with everything else
going on in his life, he wanted to have a quick escape before heading
home and facing his reality. He still can't believe that Lukas was with
Donovan the night of the summer storm; it's not that Lukas was with his
ex-boyfriend during the storm, it's that he didn't tell Craig until weeks
later. While Craig would like to believe Lukas that nothing happened,
the fact that it took him so long to tell him the truth leaves Craig wondering
if something more did happen.
Craig receives his martini and quickly takes a sip of it. He feels it
go down nice and smoothly. "Is this seat taken?" Lukas asks
his boyfriend as he comes up to him.
"I suppose not," Craig replies to him. "I'm rather surprised
to see you."
"Are you?" Lukas asks him as he sits next to Craig. "I'll
have a glass of red wine," he tells the bartender. "I wanted
a drink and thought I would see no one I knew here as opposed to Bar Code."
"Fair enough," Craig tells him back. "Well, cheers."
Lukas lifts his glass before taking a sip of the wine. "I know it
was wrong of me to wait to tell you where I was the night of the storm,"
he tells Craig. "I'm sorry. I didn't want you to overreact because
nothing happened between Donovan and I."
"It's nice that you are apologizing," Craig tells him back.
"It just leaves a bad taste in mouth that you waited so long to tell
me. What else are you keeping from me until you find the right time?"
"Nothing at all," Lukas insists to him.
"And you know? I thought something was off with you ever since that
night and now I know why," Craig continues to tell him. "I believe
you when you say nothing happened in the elevator, Lukas. But, all that
time you spent with Donovan, it brought up old feelings didn't it?"
Lukas takes another drink of his wine. He can't deny that he does still
feel something for Donovan and it was reignited after being with him in
"See, you can't deny it," Craig tells him before he takes another
sip of his martini. "I guess the question has become, which one of
us do you want to be with? Do you want to be with me or Donovan?"
Lukas turns and looks at Craig. "You make it seem like I have a choice."
"Everyone has a choice, Lukas," Craig replies to him. "The
fact is, you have feelings for two men. You need to decide which one you'd
like to be with."
Lukas nods back to him. "I suppose I do."
"See, this honesty thing isn't so hard, is it?" Craig tells
him with half a smirk. "I just hope you make up your mind before
you lose your chance with both of us."
"Have your nightmares stopped yet?" Chris asks Trenyce, as they
sit together at a table, each having a drink in front of them. He knows
that Trenyce was suffering from nightmares after she found Savannah dead
in the bathtub at the Calimo mansion the morning after the summer storm.
He can understand why she would be traumatized by the sight of finding
a woman dead in the bathtub.
Trenyce takes a sip of her gin and tonic and looks back at him. "Slowly,
they are getting better. I still feel myself thinking of Savannah often
"Yea, me too," Chris agrees back with her. "I actually
went to her gravesite the other day."
Trenyce arches her eyebrow. It's not like Chris to be the sentimental
one. "You did? Why?"
Chris sighs and takes a drink of his beer. "I don't know, Trenyce.
I guess I'm also having a hard time letting go of everything that happened.
I guess hearing that she wants Frederick to raise Andrew, not us, has
really made me realize that we did hurt her deeply with that plan we had."
Trenyce reaches over and grabs his hand causing their eyes to lock. "We
can't go back, Chris. We can only go forward. And, I think we have both
learned our lesson."
He nods back to her. "I know I have."
"We can't blame ourselves for what happened to Savannah," Trenyce
tells him. "It wasn't our fault. It's a tragic twist of fate that
she is gone. You have to stop beating yourself up."
Chris smiles back at her. "You've really grown up a lot these past
Trenyce smiles back to him. "After everything I've been through,
I've had no choice but to grow up. But it is a little refreshing isn't
Chris chuckles a little. "Very refreshing," he winks back at
her before they look into each other's eyes again.
"Thanks for meeting me here," Kim tells Andy as they sit in
a booth near the back of the bar. "I wanted to meet somewhere where
one of Bob's minion's would be. Are you sure that you're okay being at
Andy gulps and continues to play with his fingers. He has to admit being
back in a bar for the first time since getting out of rehab is difficult
but he also sees it as a chance to challenge himself. "I'm fine.
I still can't believe that Bob doesn't remember the last year of his life."
"I know," Kim replies to him as she takes a sip of tonic water.
"Tyler and I had just agreed to try make our relationship work and
then this happens."
Andy arches his eyebrow. "Well, how long do you foresee this charade
going on for?"
Kim shrugs her shoulders. "The doctor's didn't know how long the
memory loss could last. It could come back tomorrow or not for a year."
"So," Andy presses her. "You're willing to put your entire
life on hold for Bob? After everything that man did to you and Blake,
how can you do that?"
"It's not that easy Andy," Kim tells her brother. "I want
to make sure Bob is okay. I'd never forgive myself if I derailed his recovery."
"I understand that Kim," Andy says back to her. "Just make
sure you don't wait too long or you may find yourself having lost out
on your chance with Tyler for good this time."
Scene Four - Tyler's Townhouse; Tyler & Felicia's Home
"So, are you all settled in?" Tyler asks his mother as he opens
a bottle of white wine and pours two glasses. He moves over to the sofa
and fireplace and passes her a glass of the wine. He knows that his mother
has been busy the last couple of days moving into his place and out of
Felicia takes the wine glass and takes a sip. "I think so,"
she replies to him. "Darling, I can't thank you enough for letting
me move in here with you."
"You don't have to thank me," he says back to her with a smile
on his face. "I love having you here. We've missed too much time
together. This will give us a chance to really be in each other's life
again. Plus, you'll get to see Blake often."
"That's what I'm looking forward to most," Felicia agrees with
him. "I missed so much of Paige's childhood, I don't want to miss
out on a single moment of Blake's."
"Well, I'm so glad that you're here."
"Speaking of," Felicia tells him before she takes another sip
of wine. "What's going on with you and Kim? I thought you told me
you believed that things were finally working out for the two of you."
Tyler sighs a little as he knows that Kim has to pretend to be Bob's loving
wife right now because if she doesn't Bob's recovery from the stroke may
be delayed. He hates that Kim has to live out at the Calimo mansion, especially
since they just agreed to try to make their relationship work. He hopes
that Bob's memory comes back sooner rather later but he isn't going to
let that stop him.
"I have a plan," he finally replies to his mother, who takes
another sip of her wine. "I'm going to ask Kim to marry me."
"Oh Tyler!" Felicia practically squeals in delight. "That
is wonderful news! When are you going to ask her?"
"I'm not sure yet," he admits to her, as he gets a smile on
his face. "But I take it you approve?"
"Oh darling, of course I do," she smiles back to him. "Nothing
could possibly stop the two of you from being a real family."
"I hope you're right about that," Tyler nervously says back
to her. "I really hope you're right."
Scene Five - Frederick's Office
Eva opens the door and moves inside the reception area of Frederick's
office. It's rather late, so no one is there, which Eva expected. Her
mind has been racing about Felicia's suddenly statement that she doesn't
love Dominick anymore. Eva doesn't understand how, after all these months,
Felicia is claiming the change of feelings for her husband. Eva recalls
how she overheard Frederick and Felicia planning another hypnosis session
and that's when Eva wondered if maybe something is happening in the session
that has made Felicia have her change in heart.
"Only one way to find out," she whispers to herself as she quickly
moves up to Frederick's office door and turns the handle. She opens the
door and sees that the office is empty; again, she isn't surprised because
of the hour of the night that it is. She moves inside and shuts the door
again. She then moves over to Frederick's desk and starts looking for
something, anything that will help her uncover the truth about what's
going on. She finally sees a file with Felicia's name on it and is about
to open it when she hears a noise. She puts the file back down and quickly
hides under Frederick's desk.
The door to Frederick's office opens and the doctor stands in the doorway,
talking on his phone. "Yes, Meggan," he says into his telephone.
"I won't be late, but you don't need to wait up. I had some things
I had to take care of before tomorrow so I am back at the office."
Eva gulps as she hears him finish his conversation and hears him move
closer to the desk, feared that she is about to get caught.
Scene Six - The Black House; Adam, Helen & Dawn's Home
"I don't think you're in any position to be giving us orders,"
Helen snaps back at her husband. While she doesn't agree with the way
Dawn was behaving, she knows that her daughter is lashing out because
of Adam's affair. In Helen's mind, this is all Adam and Natasha's fault.
"So, you're going to let our daughter get away with blackmail, slapping
people and verbally assaulting people? I know you're upset with what happened
Helen, but we still have to be parents here," Adam says back to her,
shocked by his wife's outburst.
"I never said I condone Dawn's behaviour but this all started because
of your affair with that woman," Helen yells back at him, as she
runs her hands through her hair. "This family is in crisis right
now because of what you did, not Dawn!"
"I can't take this anymore!" Dawn yells at her parents as she
puts her hands on her hips. "Neither one of you are in a position
to scold me for my behaviour! You've both made your fair share of mistakes,
so I don't want to hear it from either one of you how I messed up, okay?"
"Dawn, please calm down," Helen tries to tell her daughter.
"Don't tell me what to do! This is so like you two," Dawn continues
to lash out at them. "You guys are having problems in your relationship
but I do one little thing and I'm the bad guy! Well, guess what? I didn't
ask to be in this family! I didn't ask to have you two as parents! And
I certainly didn't ask to witness my father sleeping with another woman!
So, if you want to blame anyone for my behavior, you both should take
a good long look in the mirror!"
Before either one can respond to her, Dawn storms out of the living room
and upstairs. Helen lets a tear fall from her cheek before she looks back
"Are you happy now?" she asks him, as he puts his hands over
"I don't know what to say," he finally replies to her.
"I don't think there is anything to say," she says back to him
as their eyes lock.
Scene Seven - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"Yes, Dominick," Melissa announces as she comes up to the group
conversation between her two daughters and her ex-husband. "What
is Robin possibly missing from this scenario?"
Rebecca gulps as she fears that the truth could be exposed right now.
Robin looks at her mother and then back at her father. "Wait, I think
I know what's going on here," Robin says to everyone.
"You do?" Rebecca asks her, trying not to sound scared.
Robin nods her head. "I know that Mom has done some pretty horrible
things Dad but she really helped me," Robin explains to him. "Mom
is the one who called 9-1-1 after Cory was shot. We owe Cory's life to
"Is that so?" Dominick asks as he locks eyes with Melissa.
"I mean, she still has some explaining to do about some other things
that we can get into later but for right now, I'm just grateful she was
there," Robin continues to say to everyone.
Before anyone can Shane comes into the waiting room. "Shane,"
Robin says rushing up to him. "How is Cory? Did he survive the surgery?"
