Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Cory stands in the waiting room looking out the window as the bright winter
sun shines on him. He feels the warmth on his face for a moment then opens
his eyes, looking at the snow that covers the ground outside. He shivers
a little at thought of being cold and then turns around to look away from
the sun. He paces a little and moves over to the table where he has a
cold cup of coffee. He drinks it but makes a sour face as he does so.
He throws the cup in the trash and looks up as he sees someone in the
standing in the entry way of the waiting room.
"Dominick," Cory sys to his father in law. "How long have
you been there?"
"Long enough to know that you're worried about today," Dominick
replies to him as he crosses his arms across his chest and moves closer
"I am guessing you know what is going on?"
"That you slept with Rebecca while Robin was fighting for her life
and may have gotten her pregnant?" Dominick asks him. "Yea,
Robin filled me in on everything."
"Well, before you tear into me, you have to know how sorry I am.
I never meant for any of this to happen," Cory explains to Dominick,
trying to make his father in law understand.
"I get that you were lonely," Dominick, surprisingly, remains
calm. "But of all the women you could have turned to, it had to be
Robin's sister? You know that's what stings the most, don't you?"
Cory puts his head down. "I get it. I just hope that this is all
some huge mistake."
"You better hope it is," Dominick tells him. "Because I'm
worried Robin will have a relapse if this this all true. And if that happens,
I'm coming straight for you."
Cory nods back to him. "Understood."
"When is the test?"
"Should be any time now," Cory replies to Dominick.
"Give me a call as soon as you know something," Dominick tells
him. "I have to get to work."
"I will Dominick."
"And Cory," Dominick stops and turns to face him one more time.
"Never hurt Robin like this again."
"Are you in the middle of something?" Victoria asks Shane as
she opens the door to his office and moves inside.
Shane looks up from his files on his desk and shakes his head. "I
can make time for you," he says as he stands up. "What's going
"I wanted you hear the latest from me," she tells him as she
moves closer to his desk. "The board of directors, they have started
their investigation into how you learned about Natasha's pregnancy."
Shane sighs and runs his hands through his hair. "I guess I shouldn't
be surprised," he tells her, trying not to worry even though he is.
"I knew that this was coming. What do you think this means?"
"Honestly, I don't think it will go well for you. You looked at a
patient's file," Victoria reminds him, as he folds his arms across
his chest. "I think they may end up suspending you."
Shane sighs and nods back to her. "Well, thank you for telling me
the investigation has started. I won't be surprised by anything that happens
Scene Two - The Sugarbowl
Robbie checks his watch quickly and realizes that he is running late for
a meeting he has with Dominick. He hasn't seen much of him lately because
of the holidays but it is still critical that they speak. Just as he puts
his coat on, however, the door to the coffeehouse opens and Jeff walks
inside. Robbie looks at the man who sued him for half of Leah's estate
and immediately feels his blood boil. Robbie knows that he should ignore
Jeff but he finds himself walking up to him.
"I hear congratulations are in order," Robbie smugly says to
Jeff tries to put a smile on his face even though he knows that Robbie
is being an asshole to him right now because he is engaged to Meggan.
"Thanks, Robbie," he says politely. "I wasn't expecting
you to say anything to me."
"How could I not?" Robbie asks him back. "You clearly have
no respect for Paige's feelings about the situation."
"Don't you dare bring my daughter into this," Jeff warns him.
"Why not? You have to know how much she despises Meggan, the woman
who killed her brother," Robbie reminds him.
Jeff sighs. "I don't know why I bother with you. You have no idea
what forgiveness is."
"Forgiveness? You're a joke, Jeff," Robbie continues to blast
him. "And, a disgusting joke at that."
"I don't have time for this."
"Of course you don't," Robbie spits at him. "I hope you
know what you're doing, Jeff, because you're going to lose everything
you've worked for."
Scene Three - MW Investigations
"I don't know it's possible that I've been in town this long and
this is the first time I've been to your office," Lukas tells Meggan
as she shows him around her office at MW Investigations.
Meggan gets a grin on her face. "It's probably because you are so
busy with the men in your life," she teases him as she recalls on
Christmas Day how Lukas admitted to her that he was torn between some
"Very funny," Lukas replies to her.
"Have you made any decisions on that front?"
Lukas shakes his head no. "I don't know what to do Meggan. It's all
"And you still don't think that telling Dad will lighten the burden
you're under?" Meggan asks him next. "I know you're worried
but he may surprise you."
"I know that's what you think," Lukas reveals to her. "But,
I don't think he would be that understanding. I just get this feeling
he wants me to be with a woman."
"I know that's what he has tried to do in the past but I think he's
changed these last few years," Meggan tells him. "I don't want
to pressure you but think about it."
"I will," he gives her a grin. "Anyways, let me see that
diamond on your finger again."
Meggan joyfully shows her ring to her brother. "Man, Jeff does have
"Not only with the ring but with his choice of brides!" Meggan
giggles back to her brother.
Lukas pulls her into a hug. "I'm happy for you sis, I really am."
Scene Four - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Shane stands at his filing cabinet putting some files away as his mind
races about the pending investigation that the board of directors at the
hospital is completing on him. He knows that at the time he felt justified
in reading Natasha's medical file so he could learn what was going on
with her but now that he realizes how serious this is, he is scared that
it may cost him his career.
He slams the filing cabinet shut.
"Rough day?" a voice calls out from the doorway of his office.
Shane turns around and sees Paige standing there with a sly grin on her
face. She finishes moving inside the office and closes the door behind
her. "You could have left that filing for me, you know I would have
done that for you," she tells him.
"I know, I just needed to do something," Shane replies to her
quickly as he moves to his desk and sits back down.
"What's wrong?" she asks him as she moves closer to him.
He sighs and runs his hands over his face. "They are investigating
something I've done here at the hospital. I could be suspended."
"My goodness, what could have happened?" she asks him as she
arrives around his desk and is standing in front of his chair.
He looks up at her and shakes his head. "I don't want to burden you
with this," he admits to her as he stands up and looks at her.
She reaches out and grabs his hands. "You know I'm here for you,
Shane looks at their touching hands and then looks into her eyes. "Paige,"
"Don't say anything," she says moving closer to him. "Let
me help you Shane."
"We can't do this," he replies to her as their lips are inches
away from each other. "We can't cross that line, not again. We have
to just be friends."
Paige feels her eyes swell with some water but she nods back to him. "I
can do that. Just let me help you, okay?"
"I appreciate that," he tells her. "As soon as I know how
you can help, I will let you know."
Scene Five - The Calimo Mansion
"Lukas had this idea for a gala or benefit that would honor Reese,"
Andy explains to Bob and Kim as they sit in the living room of the Calimo
mansion as he tells them about Lukas' idea from the other day. Andy had
never thought of doing something to honor his husband but as soon as Lukas
presented him with the idea, Andy fell in love with it and wants to run
"Well, I think it is a wonderful idea," Bob tells Andy. "I
think after everything you went through, it would be a very touching tribute."
"I agree with Bob," Kim tells her brother. "And if there's
anything that we can do to help, you will let us know?"
Andy smiles back to them. "Kim, I could use your help planning this.
I don't have much experience."
"Of course," Kim smiles back to him.
"And, I insist that you use the mansion as your venue," Bob
announces to them. "I won't take no for an answer."
"You mean that?" Andy asks him surprise.
"Of course!" Bob says.
Andy stands up and hugs Bob and then Kim. "Thank you both so much.
I'm going to take off so I can do some more planning."
"Call me if you need any help," Kim tells him before he turns
to leave. Once Andy has left the room, Kim turns to her husband and smiles.
"That was awfully nice of you."
"I knew that it would make you happy. And if it makes you happy,
it makes me happy," Bob replies to her.
"I don't know what I did to deserve you," she replies to him.
He leans forward and surprises her with a kiss. "I don't know what
I did to deserve you. But here we are. We should embrace it."
"I agree," she smiles to him. "We should."
Scene Six - Robertson Enterprises; Dominick's Office
Robbie opens the door to Dominick's office and moves inside quickly. Dominick
looks up from his desk and sees Robbie walk straight to the bar as he
pours himself a brandy.
"Rough morning?" Dominick asks him with a sly grin on his face.
Robbie finishes taking his first sip of brandy and looks back at Dominick.
"I just had a run in with Jeff," he admits to him. "Can
you believe that son of a bitch is marrying Meggan Richardson?"
"I've heard, yes," Dominick tells him as he stands up and moves
closer to Robbie. "I just want my family to move on from the bad
year we've had. Jeff deserves to have someone new in his life. I know
Meggan's history but if Jeff's happy."
"I don't care about Jeff's happiness. I care about Paige!"
"She will come around too," Dominick tells him. "You should
focus on you and your life. Leave Jeff to figure his own life out."
Robbie doesn't respond to Dominick, instead he finishes his brandy. "Your
text sounded urgent, what is going on?" Dominick asks him as Robbie
sets his glass down on the bar and turns to look at his former father
"I still want revenge on my father," Robbie reveals to him.
"I know you think showing him the picture of Tyler and Kim kissing
was enough but I need to do something. I need to be the one to make him
pay for killing Leah."
Dominick nods back to him. "Well then, what did you have in mind?"
Scene Seven - Twin Peaks General Hospital
Melissa looks at Rebecca as she comes into the hospital room wearing a
hospital gown. Melissa stands up and looks at her daughter, who is clearly
nervous about undergoing the pregnancy test. Melissa knows that everything
will be fine; it's just a matter of telling Rebecca this and making her
"Are you ready?" Melissa asks her as Rebecca starts to pace
"I don't know why we agreed to do this," Rebecca snaps back
at her, nervous for the upcoming procedure.
"Because Cory needs confirmation," Melissa informs her. "I
knew that he would ask for this. We can't lay a bombshell like this on
him and not expect him to want proof."
"But you know what the test will say, mother!" Rebecca snaps
at her as she feels her heart racing inside her chest.
"I told you, I know what I'm doing," Melissa tells her daughter
again. "Now, I need you to calm down. You have to be the expectant
mother. You can't be worried about what will or won't happen. Can you
do that for me?"
Rebecca takes a deep breath and tries to smile back to Melissa. "I
can do that," she nods to her.
"Good, come to the bed and lay down. Get comfortable," Melissa
tells her as Rebecca moves to the bed. "The doctor will be here soon
and we can get started. Just trust me, Rebecca. I know exactly what I'm
Cory continues to pace around the waiting room, hoping that he gets the
test results back sooner rather later. He has no idea how he will react
if Rebecca is pregnant with his child.
"This can't be happening," he whispers to himself. "There
has to be some mistake. After everything Robin and I have been through,
this can't happen to us."
Before he can say anything else, he turns around and sees Robin standing
in front of him. "Robin," he says to his hurt wife.
"I need to know the truth," she whispers back to him. "I'm
here to learn if Rebecca is pregnant."
