Scene One - Shane's BWM

Shane looks out at the road in front of him with intent as he is waiting to see Paige's broken down car. He quickly recalls how he got a call from the young woman telling him that she got a flat tire while heading up to the Calimo cabin after Andy's gala for Reese ended. He just happened to also be heading up there so he and Natasha could have some down time together when she called him. Shane hasn't heard from Natasha yet but he isn't too surprised because he knew that she went to the hospital to see how Bob was doing after he collapsed at the gala.

"I just hope that you're okay with having a visitor until the morning," he whispers to himself, knowing that Natasha may not be happy that Paige is at the cabin with them. "Okay, Paige," he continues to talk to himself. "How far did you get before you got your flat tire?"

Soft snow flakes start to gently fall from the sky, causing Shane to focus even more on the road. He then sees a car pulled off to the side of the road. "There you are," he ways as he turns off to the side of the road and stops his car. He opens the door and steps outside, just as Paige does the same from her car.

"Oh my goodness, thank you so much for saving me," she says as she rushes up to him and hugs up. "I was getting so scared that you weren't going to find me."

"Hey now," he tells her as he holds her. "I told you I would come for you and I did. Get your stuff from your car and put it in the back. We'll head up to the cabin together."

Paige looks back at Shane and nods back to him. "I'm sorry if I ruined your night plans," she says as she grabs a bag from her car.

"Nonsense," he replies to her as he opens the trunk to his car. "I doubt Natasha will even make it tonight now, considering it has started to snow."

"Yea, it looks like it might just be the two of us," Paige says as she sets her back in Shane's car.

Scene Two - The Pampa Grill

"I love that you wanted to come out and get some dessert," Meggan tells Jeff as they sit across from each other at the restaurant. They just made it in before closing time since it's already rather late but since they left the gala a little bit early, she wanted to get something sweet.

"Well, I know we worked up a bit of an appetite after the party," he winks back over to her as he takes a bit of the brownie that they are sharing as he recalls going home with you after the gala and having an intense loving making session with his fiancé.

"I don't hear you complaining," she grins back to him.

"Definitely not," he replies to her. "We needed that."

"Yea, we did. It was nice to connect with you," she tells him. "Not that I don't feel close to you but I can tell that this Paige drama is really getting to you."

Jeff sighs a little. "It is. I just wish that I knew what I could do or say to my daughter to make her realize that I love her and I don't want to hurt her in any way."

"That will never happen," a voice says above Jeff's head. He turns around and sees Robbie standing at his table. Jeff rolls his eyes quickly back to his rival. "Paige will never accept you or this engagement. I hope you're prepared to lose your daughter forever."

"No one asked you to interrupt our conversation," Jeff snaps back at him. "I don't want to get into another verbal war with you, Robbie. So, let's just end this and call it a night, shall we?"

Robbie chuckles a little. "You'd love to make me pretend that I don't know how badly you're going to hurt Paige. But here's the thing, Jeffrey, I will always care for Paige and I will always protect her from the likes of you."

"That's enough!" Meggan yells at the men as she stands up and puts her fist into the table. "You two will never like each other, everyone realizes that. But this war of words has to end, do you understand me? You both need to look in the mirror and realize that Paige is the one who needs you both. Start acting like you care for that girl and come together for her sake."

"Meggan," Jeff begins to say to his fiance.

"No Jeff, I don't want to hear it right now," she interrupts him and walks off leaving the two men standing with each other.

"She's feisty," Robbie tells Jeff with a sly grin on his face. "I hope you can handle her once you're married."

"Go to hell," Jeff replies to Robbie as he rushes after Meggan.

Scene Three - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Kim slowly walks up to the hospital room door and peers inside the tiny window. She can see Bob laying in his hospital bed with his eyes closed. She fights back some tears in her eyes as she recalls how Craig revealed to her that Bob suffered another minor stroke earlier in the evening. She can't believe that Dominick and Tyler were so close to revealing the truth about her affair with Tyler to Bob at the party; the last thing that Bob needs right now is to learn the truth about what happened in the last year or so before his memory comes back all on its own. Had they revealed the truth, it could have set back Bob's progress in his recovery.

"Thank God they didn't say anything to you," she whispers to herself as she slowly opens the door to the hospital room. She moves inside and watches her husband sleep, but his eyes end up opening a little. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to wake you."

Bob looks at his wife and shakes his head. "No, it's fine. I wasn't really sleeping anyways."

"You gave me quite the scare," she tells him as she moves closer to his bed. "You have to stop having these health issues."

Bob looks back at his wife and can see how worried she is. He realizes that she does care for him. "Why don't you go home and get some rest. It's been a long night. I'll be here in the morning waiting for you," he whispers to her.

"Are you sure? I don't want to leave you," she replies to him as she grabs his hand.

"You're not going to have a good night's rest here," he tells her. "I'm tired and need to rest. Please, go back to the mansion and have a good night, okay?"

She leans in and kisses him on the forehead. "I'll be back first thing in the morning," she tells him.

"Good night Kimberly," he says back to her as she leaves the room. Once she's gone, Bob sighs and runs his hand over his face. "The good thing about this stroke," he begins to say to himself. "Is that my memory came back. I remember, everything that has happened," he continues to talk to himself, as realizes that he had memory loss after his first stroke and that's why Kim was helping him recover. He had been a son of a bitch to her before his last stroke, he knows that. It would have taken a fool not to see that. But, he can't deny that he and Kim have grown much closer in the last few months, to the point that he has fallen in love with her all over again. If he reveals the truth, however, he knows that he could lose her to Tyler and that's the last thing that he wants to have happen.

"Now, I have to use this to my advantage. Dominick and Tyler were going to reveal the affair to me this evening. But Kimberly and I have grown so close while she's helped me get over the stroke. If I don't tell her that my memory has returned, I can keep my wife. I can make my marriage work. And, stick it to Dominick and that son of a bitch son of his," Bob smiles to himself. "Yes, I'm not going to say anything to anyone about my memory coming back. That's just the way it has to be."


"Kim, how is my father?" Natasha asks her best friend as Kim walks into the waiting room having just left Bob's room.

Kim looks over at Natasha and smiles. "He seems to be fine. He asked me to go home for the evening and comeback in the morning. This stroke wasn't as big as the first one, thank goodness."

"That's great news," Natasha replies to her. "I was so worried about him."

"I know, thank you for being here with me. Andy went home earlier so I didn't want to be here alone."

"Andy must have been exhausted from throwing that party," Natasha replies to her. "I was hoping to head to the cabin tonight to see Shane but it's started to snow, so I think I'll wait until the morning."

"Tell you what," Kim replies to her. "Why don't you come back to the mansion with me? It's closer to the cabin and you can leave first thing in the morning."

"I like the sound of that," Natasha says back to her with a grin on her face.

Scene Four - The Calimo Cabin

"I'm so glad that we made it," Paige says as she opens the door to the cabin. "I really hate driving in the snow."

"I know," Shane agrees with her as he closes the door behind him. "It was getting more intense out there."

Paige looks around the cabin and realizes it has been a long time since she has been there. "I haven't been here in ages," she tells him as he moves over to the fire place and starts putting some wood in the place to make a fire. "But it never changes, huh?"

"Nope," Shane tells her as he lights a match and soon there's a roaring fire in front of them. "That's part of the charm of this place, I guess."

"Thanks for making the fire, I was cold," Paige tells him as she moves over to the flames and puts her hands out to warm her.

"Yea, for sure," he says back to her as he moves to the window and looks outside. "The snow is coming down heavier now. I really don't think that Natasha will be coming tonight."

Paige turns around from the fire and looks at Shane. "Well, we suspected that, didn't we? It gives us the chance to have an evening together, though. I brought some wine, what do you say? Would you like a glass?"

Shane looks back at her with a smile on his face. "I'd love a glass but are you old enough to drink?"

Paige chuckles as she pulls a bottle out from her bag. "Probably not but please don't parent me. I always drink with my friends. I know my limits, okay?"

Shane puts his hands up in defense. "Okay, okay," he laughs back to her. She passes him a glass of wine.

"Let's have a toast," she tells him. "To a night of getting to know each other better."

"I'll drink to that," he says back to her as they cheers and then start to drink the wine.

Scene Five - Dominick's Townhouse

"I don't recall the last time I had so much fun at a party," Eva tells Dominick as she pours two glasses of port for a night cap for the two of them. Eva turns around and passes a glass to Dominick, who accepts it. She looks lovingly back at Dominick and her mind immediately goes back to the party when he revealed to her that Felicia signed their divorce papers, meaning that Dominick would soon be a free man to move on with his life with her. While this is something that Eva has waited a very long time for, she can't help but wonder if she's doing the right thing by not revealing that during Frederick's hypnosis sessions with Felicia, he was telling her that she doesn't love Dominick anymore. For the time being, Eva has realized that she is on the verge of getting everything she has always wanted so she hasn't told Dominick the truth just yet.

"As much fun as anyone could possibly have at Bob Calimo's house," Dominick quips back to her as he takes a sip of his port.

"Oh come on," Eva grins back to him as she sits next to him on the sofa. "You have to admit that Andy really did a wonderful job throwing a gala that honoured Reese nicely."

"He did," Dominick agrees with her. "It's such a shame that those two will never get their happily ever after."

Eva nods to him. "But you know what?" he continues to tell her. "That doesn't mean that you and I shouldn't have our happily ever after."

"Especially now that Felicia has signed those divorce papers," Eva agrees with him, even though her conscious immediately starts telling her that Frederick is brainwashing her.

"Those are my thoughts exactly," Dominick replies to her.

"How do you feel about Felicia now that she has signed the divorce papers?" Eva asks him.

Dominick signs a little. "Honestly, I'm surprised she signed the papers," he tells her. "But I'm thrilled that she did."

"So am I," Eva smiles back to him.

He turns and looks at her. "I know I told you at the party that we can move forward with our lives now," he tells her as he grabs her hand. "And I meant that, Eva. I want us to grow old together. I want to spend the rest of my life with you."

"I want that too, Dominick," she replies to him.

He pulls a black box out of his pocket and opens it, surprising her with a large green emerald ring with diamonds around the band. "Dominick, what is this? What are you doing?"

He grins back to her. "I'm asking you to spend the rest of your life with me, Eva," he tells her. "Marry me, be my wife…what do you say?"

A single tear falls down Eva's cheek as she covers her mouth in happiness. "Of course I will marry you! Of course I'll be your wife," she says as she hugs him. They kiss before he places the large ring on her finger.

"This is the beginning of the start of the rest of our lives together," he whispers as their lips part of a moment.

Scene Six - Frederick's Office

Frederick sits at his desk looking over some paperwork. After the party, while it was late, he decided to stop in at the office to take care of a few things before the next day. Really, his mind, though, is on the fact that Eva seemingly has agreed to not reveal the fact that he was brain washing Felicia into believing that she doesn't love Dominick anymore. Frederick knows that he was only doing that so he could finally have a chance with the woman that he loves. The fact that Felicia has signed the divorce papers and Eva is willing to keep quiet just means that Frederick is closer than ever to getting everything that he ever wants.

"I have to make sure that nothing stops this from happening," he whispers to himself. "I have to make sure that I finally get my chance at happiness with Felicia."

Frederick recalls how at the party Felicia told him that she wants to go back under hypnosis to see if she has anymore memories in her subconscious. Frederick knows that going forward putting Felicia back under hypnosis is dangerous because she doesn't have any other secrets but he does have to ensure that her feelings for Dominick don't come back.

"The problem is," he continues to talk to himself. "If I keep putting Felicia under hypnosis, Dominick will question me as to why. No, I have to think of something else. There has to be another way to make sure that Felicia continues to believe that she doesn't love that man anymore."

Frederick stands up and moves over to the bar in his office. He pours himself a bourbon and takes a drink of it. "That's it," he says as he swallows the strong liquid. "I know exactly how I can make sure that Felicia doesn't get her feelings back. This is perfect," he says to himself as he moves back to his desk to finish carrying out his latest plan.

Scene Seven - The Calimo Mansion

"Did we really just finish the second bottle?" Shane asks as his blood shot eyes feel heavier and heavier as he half lays on the sofa next to Paige.

Paige looks over at him with a grin on her face and nods back to him. "Don't worry, I'm feeling fine," she tells him knowing that she's only had two glasses of wine and the rest Shane has drank all on his own. "How are you feeling?"

Shane barely looks back at her. "I think I've had too much," he reveals to her.

She places her hand on his chest and moves closer to him. "Can I get you anything at all?"

Shane shakes his head no. "I think I should just go to sleep Paige. It's been a long day."

"Are you sure?" she asks him, looking into his eyes. "I was thinking…"

"What?" he asks her, trying not to fall asleep.

"This…" she says leaning in and kissing him passionately.

He pulls back quickly. "No, no, no, Paige," he tells her as he stands up from the sofa. "We can't do that. I'm married to Natasha, remember?"

"I remember," Paige says back to him, trying not to feel rejected. "I just thought that we were here alone…"

He stops and looks at her and before he knows it, she kisses him again as she starts to unbutton her blouse. She pulls back and throws her top off, his drunken eyes fill with lust as he looks over her body. She kisses him again before he pulls back.

"No, no," he stops himself from making a mistake. He looks at her with his blood shot eyes and shakes his head. "I'm so sorry I did this. I'm going to head upstairs to bed … you, you don't stay up too late, okay?" he says as he grabs the hand railing and starts to walk up the stairs. The best thing he knows he can do is get some sleep to shake off his drunken state.

Paige watches him go up the stairs and shakes her head. "How could I have been so stupid?" she asks herself as she moves her hand to her lips and thinks about the taste of Shane's kiss. "No," she continues to tell herself. "Dawn was right. This is my chance. Tonight, this is will happen."

She looks over at the staircase as finishes getting undressed. She slowly walks over to the stairs and walks up, knowing that Shane will have a change of heart.
