Scene One - The Pampa Grill

"There's still no word on Dawn or her whereabouts?" Natasha asks Adam as the two sit at a table, having lunch together. Natasha knows that she probably shouldn't be seen with Adam in public right now because their affair has created a lot of hurt to their families but she also knows that because the affair has come out, he's probably her only friend right now.

Adam takes a bite of his grilled chicken Caesar salad as he looks back at Natasha. He can only imagine what she is really thinking about his daughter right now even though she is showing signs of concern that Dawn is missing. After he found out that Dawn was blackmailing Natasha for so many months, he wouldn't be upset if Natasha never wanted to see or hear from his daughter again.

He shakes his head before he says anything back to her. "Nothing and I don't know how much longer I can do without knowing that she is safe," he reveals to her, knowing that his worried about his daughter.

"You know that Robbie is doing everything he possibly can to find her, right?" she asks him back as he nods his head to her. "Dawn will be found, you have to believe that."

"I'm trying too and I really appreciate that you're so supportive," he replies to her. "You must hate Dawn for what she did to you."

Natasha pauses and collects her thoughts before she looks back at her friend. "I could never hate your daughter, Adam," she tells him. "Everything that happened between Dawn and I, it started because of what I did. I can't imagine what our affair did to her."

"How are things between you and Shane?" he asks her, knowing that Helen is still livid with him for cheating on her.

Natasha picks up her glass of white wine and takes a sip of it. "He can barely stand to be in the same room as me," she reveals to her friend. "I don't know if anything will ever be the same between us again."

"I'm so sorry," Adam says back to her. "I know how much you love Shane."

Natasha nods back to him. "And, I know how much you love Helen. We made a mess of things, didn't we?"

Adam can't help but smile back to her. "It's nice that we have each other to talk to about this," he whispers back to her. "I feel like I'm pretty alone outside of you."

Natasha agrees with him. "I couldn't agree more."

"Well, isn't this cozy?" Shane announces to them as he approaches their table. "How are you two lovers enjoying lunch?"


"I think they've changed the house merlot," Daisy tells Vinny as they sit across from each other at a table and she puts her glass of red wine down. "Not that I'm complaining, this one seems better than the last."

"That's good," Vinny smiles back to her.

"So," she replies to him. "Are you going to tell me why you asked me out for lunch today when you know that I a million things waiting for me on my desk at the office?"

"Can't a guy want to have lunch with his beautiful fiancé?" he chuckles back to her. "But fine, there is a reason that I wanted to have lunch with you today."

Daisy arches her eyebrow. "Well, I'm ears, what's going on?"

Vinny leans in closer to her so no one else can hear what he is about to say. "I've done something and I hope It is the right thing."

"What have you done?"

"You know that Jemma continues to tell Trenyce and Chris to search for their child, the one that was switched with Andrew," Vinny tells her as Daisy nods his head. "Well, I went ahead and got some of my people involved in trying to find their child."

"You did?" Daisy asks him shocked by what she is hearing. "I didn't know they asked you to look into that for them."

"I offered to look into it for them," Vinny reveals to her. "They didn't say yes or no but I know that they would both be happier if they knew what happened to their child."

"I can't argue with that," Daisy says back to him. "Especially since Frederick was awarded custody of Andrew after Savannah passed away. Wait, why are you telling me this now? Vinny, have you uncovered something about Trenyce's child?"

Vinny locks eyes with her. "I think I might have…." He reveals to her. "We have a lead. We could find out where Trenyce's child is."

Scene Two - Frederick's Office

Eva quickly opens the door to Frederick's office and closes it behind her. She knows that he is away on a meeting currently because she checked with his receptionist. Once she was gone from her desk for a moment, she quickly came into his office because she is determined to find out, once and for all, what is going on between him and Felicia. She locks the office door before she turns around and looks at his desk.

She moves towards the desk quickly as she recalls the last time she was in Frederick's office; she had been there to try to determine what exactly is going on between Frederick and Felicia as she suspects that something odd is happening in their hypnosis sessions. In doesn't make sense to Eva that Felicia has suddenly announced that she isn't in love with Dominick anymore; the one consistent thing in Felicia's life since she came back to Twin Peaks was that she still loved her husband.

Eva looks at the desk and sees a note book. "I wonder if that's it," she whispers as she sits in Frederick's chair. She reaches over and grabs the note book and opens it. She can see on the first page; it reads the time and date and the hypnosis session number.

"This is it," she says to herself. "These are his notes on his sessions with Felicia. This could be the key to finding out exactly what is going on with Felicia."

Scene Three - Tyler's Townhouse

"Thank you for watching Blake for me today," Kim tells Tyler as she moves inside the townhouse, holding baby Blake in her arms. "He's getting so big, isn't he?"

Tyler takes his son from Kim's hands and puts him down in the middle of the room where some of his toys are. Tyler returns his focus to the mother of his child. "He is but I can't believe how much I am in love with him."

"I know, I'm the same way," she smiles back to him.

"How are things going with Bob?" he quickly asks her. He knows that he has to be patient with Kim as she pretends to be Bob's loving wife while he is recovering from his stroke but he wishes that it would all be over so they can move on with their lives together.

Kim sighs as she knows that Bob still hasn't gotten his memory back. "Slowly," she nods back to him. "The doctors are saying he is in good health he just hasn't had any memories yet."

"That's good news though, right? The fact that he's in good health?"

She nods back to him again. "I'd say so, yes. It is just a matter of time before he remembers and then we can be together," she says as she comes up to him and gives him a quick kiss. "Don't think I've changed my mind."

"Good because I still want you more than ever before," he whispers back to her. "So much that I have a surprise for you."

"You have a surprise, for me?" she asks him as she gets a twinkle in her eye. "What do you have planned?"

He comes back up to her after grabbing something from the stand where the TV is standing on. He comes over to her and presents her with a ring box. "What's this?" she asks him as he places it in her hand.

"Open it," he smiles to her.

Kim opens the box and is shocked to see a large diamond ring inside. "Tyler, this is beautiful."

"You're beautiful Kim," he replies to her. "And together, we created that beautiful little boy over there. We create beauty with our love. I love you and I want to create more beauty with you. Be my wife, let's do this forever thing together."

"I don't know what to say," she quickly says back to him. "I have to take care of Bob and I don't know how long this will go on for."

"I know all of that," he says as he puts his hands on her shoulders. "And, I don't care. One day I know Bob's memory will come back. Until then, I want us to be engaged. I want us to keep planning our future together."

"Tyler," she replies to him as she turns back to face him. "I'm really touched by this and I want to say yes…"

"Then say yes."

"But, I don't know how I can ask you to put your life on hold while Bob recovers. I can't do that to you. I won't do that to you. You have to live your life and if you're still here when Bob's memory comes back, that's perfect."

"You make it sound like you don't want Bob's memory to come back," Tyler lashes out at her. "Are you falling in love with him again?"

"Don't be ridiculous," she snaps back at him.

"Then I don't understand!" he confesses to her.

"There's nothing else to understand," she tells him. "I'll be back later to see Blake. I'm so sorry Tyler."

Scene Four - The Sugarbowl

Lukas opens the doors to the coffeehouse and quickly moves inside as the cold air outside was starting to give him a heck of a chill. In his hands are bags of the presents he has bought for Christmas, which is coming up quickly. He quickly moves into the lineup and orders himself a hot chocolate. He puts some bags down to put a lid on his cup when he spots Donovan sitting in the back corner booth of the restaurant. Lukas feels his heart beat a little faster at the sight of his ex-lover.

He quickly picks up his bags, not wanting to speak to Donovan today. He knows that he still has to make up his mind about which man he would like to pursue a relationship with: Donovan or Craig. Lukas has this fear that if he decides on one man that he won't want to have a relationship with him and then he is out in the cold.

He goes to turn around and freezes when he sees Craig standing there. "Heading out already?" Craig asks him.

"Yea, I was thinking of heading home to wrap these Christmas presents," Lukas replies to him.

"That's a shame, I see Donovan back there. I thought the three of us could talk," Craig tells him. "Are you sure you don't have a second or two?"

Lukas sighs. "I suppose I do," he says back to him as they make their way back to the booth where Donovan is sitting.

"Hey Donovan," Craig announces to him as they reach the booth.

"Hi," Donovan replies to them, surprised to see both of them. "What's going on? You both look pretty serious."

"I don't know if you're aware of this but Lukas has been struggling with getting over his feelings for you," Craig reveals to Donovan, who tries to act surprised even though he had a hunch that this was happening after the summer storm. "I told him that he should make up his mind about who he'd like to have a relationship with."

Donovan looks up at Lukas, who is still standing at the table. "How are you feeling about all of this?"

Lukas shrugs his shoulders. "Overwhelmed," he admits to them. "I have no idea who I should choose between the two of you. Nor do I feel like I have the right to choose."

"I think Craig is right," Donovan confesses to him. "You should decide which one of us you'd like to pursue a relationship with. I'm not saying that a relationship would be easy because of some other obstacles standing in your way but it would be a start."

"That's just the thing," Lukas tells them. "I don't know where to begin because I am in love with both of you. Each of you have different qualities that make me love you both. So, there you have it. I'm a disaster, I'd admit it."

Donovan and Craig look back at each other and gulp. Lukas looks back at them. "I promise once I know what's in my head and heart, I'll let you both know."


Helen stirs her latte at the coffee bar and then picks up her cup to taste it. She feels the hot liquid start to warm her as it was cold outside today. She looks at her watch and realizes that another hour has passed and she hasn't heard anything about Dawn. She hopes that she hears from Robbie soon because she is getting more and more worried every moment that passes and she doesn't know where her daughter is.

She moves towards the window bar and has a seat. She was initially thinking of heading home with her latte but she knows that Barbara is there and she doesn't want to dwell on Dawn's disappearance right now; she'd like to have a moment to clear her head.

"Please be alright Dawn," she whispers to herself before she takes a sip of her latte.

"Is that seat taken?" Chris asks Helen as he comes up to her and points to the seat next to hers.

"No, it's not," she replies to him as he moves in and sits next to her. "I haven't seen you around in awhile, Chris, how are you?"

Chris takes a sip of his coffee before he nods back to her. "I can't complain, I suppose. There's always something going on."

"Isn't that the truth?" she replies to him quickly.

"How are you and Adam doing?" he asks her, trying to make small talk with her.

She pauses and wonders what is going on between her and her husband. She knows that he has moved out of the house at her request because of the affair with Natasha. She has no idea where to begin in her attempt to forgive him but she does know that she still loves him, despite everything that has happened.

"You don't to answer if you don't want too," he tells her, picking up on her delayed response. "I don't mean to pry."

"No, it's fine," she tells him. "It's just… marriage can be a complicated thing."

Chris chuckles a little. "Tell me about. That's probably why I am divorced."

Helen laughs a little. "I needed to laugh," she admits to him.

"Well, I'm glad I could help. Anytime you feel like you need to have a laugh, you should give me a call. We could be good for each other like that."

"I'll keep that mind," she smiles to him.

Scene Five - The Calimo Mansion; The Guesthouse

Robbie unlocks the door to the guesthouse and quickly moves inside. He turns on all the lights and looks around. He recalls getting a call from Rosario telling him that she believed someone was in the guesthouse because she could tell that the furnace had been turned on; this hadn't been done since Natasha moved out of the house.

"Is anyone in here?" he calls out as he looks around and can see signs of life within the house. An empty coffee cup, an unfolded blanket on the sofa and fresh ashes in the fireplace.

Dawn slowly emerges at the top of the stairs and looks at the cop. "How did you find me?" she asks him as she starts to walk down the stairs.

Robbie looks over at Dawn and smiles a little that he has found her. "I'm so glad that you're okay. You have no idea how worried your parents have been about you."

She rolls her eyes back at him. "Well that's good for them. Paige told him that it was okay if I stayed here for a while. She said she was going to run it by Bob."

"Did she now?" Robbie asks her back. "Well, my father has no idea that you're here. I only came because Rosario saw that the heat was turned on."

"Just because I gave myself away doesn't mean that I want to leave," she replies to him. "I am not going back home, Robbie. And you can tell my parents that too. I'm not going to live in that house anymore."

Robbie nods back to her. "That's fine, I can't force you to go home. But I will tell Adam and Helen were you are."

"If you must," Dawn snaps back at him.

"We aren't trying to hurt you Dawn," Robbie informs her. "Your parents care about you. You should learn not to push those people that care away from you. One day, you may need them and find yourself all alone. I'll see myself out."

Dawn watches him leave the house. She sighs and runs her hands through her long hair. "I already am alone," she whispers to herself.

Scene Six - The Pampa Grill

"Shane, it's not what you think it is," Natasha begins to explain to her husband, who just walked up and saw her having lunch with Adam.

"You have no idea what I'm thinking," Shane snaps back at her, furious that she is having lunch with the man that she had an affair with. "But for a woman who has been telling me she wants our marriage to work, you have a fucked up way of trying to prove that to me."

"Shane," Adam begins to tell him back.

"Shut up, Adam," Shane cuts him off. "I don't want to hear anything you have to say."

"Can we just go outside and talk?" Natasha asks him as she stands up to face her husband.

"There's nothing more to say," Shane spits back at her. "You've clearly made your choice and so, I have no choice left."

"What are you talking about?" she asks him.

"I'm filing for divorce," Shane reveals to her. "You two, you can have each other!"
