Scene One - MW Investigations; Meggan's Office

"I hope I'm not interrupting anything," Vinny announces to Meggan as he stands in her office doorway holding two cups of coffee from the Sugarbowl. He had hoped to see his ex-wife during Andy's gala but he didn't get the chance to see her and since he was grabbing a coffee at the Sugarbowl, he thought he would grab one for Meggan and stop by to say hello.

Meggan looks up from her desk and smiles at the sight of Vinny. "You're not if that coffee is for me," she smirks back to him.

Vinny enters the office and passes her the coffee. "Cream and no sugar, just the way you like it."

"What brings you by this morning? Other, than giving me a much needed caffeine boost," she asks him as she takes a sip of the coffee.

Vinny shrugs a little. "I was hoping to say hi to you at the party the other night but I didn't get the chance. I saw you there with Jeff, did you have a good time?"

Meggan thinks back to the night of the gala when Jeff told her that Paige still hasn't accepted her in his life. The worst part, is because Paige has been lashing out, Jeff hasn't revealed to his daughter that he is engaged to Meggan. Meggan doesn't know how Paige will react to that news but she can only assume that it won't be good if she doesn't want her father even dating her.

"It was nice to see how much Andy loved Reese," Meggan replies to him. "He really went all out."

Vinny agrees with her with a nod of his head. "Daisy was saying the same thing. You didn't really answer my question, though. Did you have a good time?"

Meggan sighs. "Jeff and I had a good time, yes," she hesitates to say to him. "The truth is, Vinny, Paige doesn't know about our engagement yet and I'm not sure she'll take the news well when she does hear about it."

Vinny takes a sip of his coffee. "She's still grieving Leah?" he asks her as Meggan nods her head back.

"I think the fact that she wasn't in town when Leah died has been hard on Paige. She hasn't really had a chance to say good bye to her Mom and now that her Dad has moved on…"

"It can't be easy for her," Vinny tells her. "Paige is so young, this may impact her for a very long time."

Meggan nods back to him. "I know. I just wish she would come around. This is hitting Jeff really hard."

"Can I ask you a question? And, please know that I'm coming from a good place here. I'm not trying to upset you at all."

Meggan arches her eyebrow. "Well after an intro like that, you have to finish your thought. What is your question?"

"Are you sure you want to marry Jeff?" Vinny asks her, which takes Meggan aback. "I mean, I know you love him and I don't doubt that he loves you but it seems like an awful lot of family drama attached to this wedding."

Meggan sighs and feels her heart break inside her chest a little. She does want to marry Jeff, she doesn't want anything else in the world. But she can't help but agree with Vinny; Paige's disapproval is weighing heavily over the wedding plans.

"I do want to marry Jeff," she says as she bites her lower lip. "I'm just not sure if marrying him is the right thing to do."


In the lobby, Chris and Trenyce sit next to each other waiting for their appointment with Meggan to begin. They were able to schedule a meeting with her relatively quickly after they agreed to see her in hopes of her finding their long lost child. Trenyce hopes that Meggan will be able to find their child because she doesn't know how much more heartbreak she can go through with this situation. For so many years, she believed Andrew was her son. When the baby switch was revealed, she was so focused on getting Andrew back from Savannah that she didn't even think about searching for her real child. Now that she has been set on this path, she just wants it to happen even though she knows that it may take a very long time to find her child.

"You're quiet this morning," Chris finally says something to her as he looks over at Trenyce, who is still deep in thought.

Trenyce looks back at him and looks into his eyes. "I just hope this works," she whispers back to him. "I just want to have our child back. That's all I really want."

"I know," Chris agrees with her as he grabs her hand. "It is what I want too."

Trenyce looks at their locked hands and quickly thinks back to the previous day when she happened to see Chris and Helen in the park sharing a kiss. Trenyce knows that seeing the kiss upset her a lot, which she realizes is probably because she has some kind of feelings for him. She sighs a little and looks up at Chris.

"Can I ask you a question?" she finds herself asking him as he nods back.

"Of course you can, you can ask me anything."

"What's going on with you and Helen Black?" she asks him, hoping she's not crossing a line.

Chris arches his eyebrow and removes his hand from Trenyce's quickly. He recalls kissing Helen but also knows that they are just friends. He has no idea what will happen with Helen and Adam's marriage right now, but he can't deny that he enjoys being in Helen's company.

"We are just friends, why do you ask?" he replies to her, which upsets Trenyce because she was hoping to get more information out of him.

"No reason," she says back to him as she looks forward, hoping that Meggan asks them in before their conversation gets more awkward.

Scene Two - The Pampa Grill

In a back booth of the restaurant, Daisy and Jemma sit across from each other with bridal magazines scattered on the table as they each have a cup of coffee in front of them.

Jemma looks at one of the magazines and points her finger at the picture. "This one, this one is real nice. I think you should try do somethin' like this," she says with a grin on her face.

Daisy looks at the picture and then looks up at Jemma. The bright pink and neon green dresses in the picture are probably the most hideous things that Daisy has ever seen in her life. She can't help but chuckle. "We aren't going to get anywhere if you keep joking around with this," Daisy laughs with her aunt.

Jemma laughs back with her. "Seriously, I wonder where some of these designs even come from! Down in the south, we always had simple dresses. Not these ugly things. You know, maybe Miss Trenyce could design a lil somethin' for you?"

"I'm so glad you're helping me plan this wedding," Daisy tells her aunt as she reaches over and grabs her hand. "You know how much it means to me now that you're back in my life, right?"

"Oh child," Jemma smiles back to her. "I wouldn't be anywhere else. You and Miss Trenyce mean the world to me."

Jemma looks back at Daisy, who starts to look like she's day dreaming. Jemma waves her hand in front of Daisy's face. "Earth to Miss Daisy," Jemma says to her. "Where'd you go just now, child? You looked a million miles away."

Daisy picks up her cup of coffee and takes a drink. "I guess I was just thinking…"

"Thinkin' about what?"

"My parents," Daisy says back to Jemma, who picks up her coffee and starts to have a drink of it. "They would have loved to have been apart of this wedding too."

Jemma sets her coffee back down on the table. "All we have are memories," Jemma tells her. "Hold them close to your heart and they will be with you on your special day."

Daisy nods back to her. "Yea, they will be."

Scene Three - The Pier

Robin walks slowly along the pier holding a cup of hot chocolate in her hand. It's still rather brisk outside, but she is enjoying the cold air in her lungs as she feels like it helps her think. Her mind is racing about whether or not Rebecca is pregnant with Cory's child. If her sister is carrying her husband's baby, she doesn't know how she will possibly go on. After everything she and Cory have been through to be together, she doesn't know if this is something she can forgive.

She looks out at the frozen river as her mind continues to race about what she will do if a baby is in Rebecca's future. She turns around and sees Cory walking towards her. She looks at the man that she has loved for so many years and feels her heart skip a beat just by looking at him. She wishes that this is all some huge mistake. Still, she knows that she can't ever be with Cory again, not after he slept with her sister. She could forgive a lot of things, but being with her sister is not one of them. She doesn't know where that leaves her marriage, and that upsets her as well.

"Thanks for coming," she says to him as he approaches her. "I hope you're okay with meeting me on the pier."

"I'd meet you anywhere you asked me to," he replies to her, as he looks at his wife. "You look good."

She smiles a little back to him. "Thank you. I've just been trying to get everything back together in my life, you know? I missed so much time being in the mental hospital."

"I know you did," he says back to her. "I'm glad that things are getting better for you."

"Are they?" she asks him as their eyes lock. "I've been dying to know about Rebecca. Is she pregnant? Are you going to have a baby with my sister?"

Cory sighs and grabs Robin's free hand. "You know I love you, right?" he asks her as she nods back to him.

"I know you love me Cory," she replies to him. "But sometimes love isn't enough."

"Love is always enough."

Robin shakes her head as a tear falls down her cheek. "You slept with my sister," she whispers back to him as she wipes her cheek from the tear. "Even if Rebecca isn't pregnant, Cory, I don't know how to get past the fact that you slept with my sister. My sister, of all people!"

"I know and I'm so sorry," Cory pleads with her, hoping to make her understand.

"Don't be sorry," she tells him. "Just tell me, is Rebecca pregnant? Is my sister going to have your baby?"

Scene Four - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Rebecca looks at her phone to re-read a text message that she got from Melissa, asking her to meet her at the hospital. Rebecca recalls how Melissa told her to follow her lead with this pregnancy and she will take care of everything else. What Rebecca doesn't know, however, is what kind of lead her mom is about to take her on. She puts her hand on her stomach and recalls how she found out that she is pregnant with Cory's baby, even though she didn't think that she was. She doesn't know what, exactly, is going on, but she's hoping that Melissa is going to give her answers today.

She finds the private room that her Melissa asked her to meet her and Rebecca slowly opens the door. Melissa turns around from looking at the window and looks back at her daughter.

"It's about time you got her," Melissa says to her daughter, as Rebecca closes the door behind her.

"Sorry, I've never been in this part of the hospital. I had no idea it even existed," Rebecca tells her. "What's so important that you wanted to see me so urgently?"

"We have to discuss the next phase of our plan," Melissa tells her cryptically.

"Plan, what plan Mom? Why do you always feel the need to talk in all of these codes?" Rebecca asks her, growing frustrated with Melissa's inability to tell her what's really going on.

Melissa grins back to her daughter. "Cory believes you are pregnant, yes?" she asks Rebecca, who nods back to her. "We both know that's not true. You said it yourself, it was impossible."

"So how did the test results come back that I'm pregnant?" Rebecca asks her.

Melissa chuckles to herself. "Never underestimate me, dear. You should know that by now."

"Wait," Rebecca interrupts her. "If I'm not pregnant, how is this going to work? How am I going to give Cory a child when one doesn't exist?"

"That's where I come in," a voice says as the door opens to the room.

Rebecca turns around and sees a woman she thought she'd never see again: Caroline Fitzpatrick!

Scene Five - Roboto

Kim opens the door to Bob's office and quickly moves inside. She throws her purse down on the sofa before she walks over to the desk and sits down. She turns on his laptop and while she waits for the computer to boot up, she can't help but think of her idea that she gave Bob about Roboto coming up with a facial cream. To her surprise, he was on board with the idea; so, she has come into the office today to start putting together some ideas and concepts to get the facial cream off the ground.

Kim knows that Bob is worried that if Dominick finds out about the facial cream, he will try to launch a similar product before Roboto can, so she knows that it is key that they are quick and efficient with their release.

"The most important thing," she whispers to herself as she starts to type in to the computer. "Is that we have a quality product. We have to have a facial cream that helps with winkles. Women will love that."

She pauses for a moment as she looks over and sees a picture from her wedding to Bob. She picks up the picture and looks at it for a moment, seeing how happy they once were. She feels her heart melt a little, thinking that she and Bob have grown so much closer in the last few months while she has been helping him recover from his strokes.

"I'm doing this for you Bob," she whispers as she sets the picture frame back down. "For us. Together, we will create this facial cream. And, we will come out on top."

Scene Six - Robertson Enterprises

"I'm glad you're here," Dominick says to Tyler, who has just walked into his father's office. Dominick recalls how at the gala, Tyler revealed that he would like to create a facial cream for Robertson Enterprises. The facial cream would really set Robertson apart from some of their competitors, especially Roboto. Dominick knows that they have to move quickly with this idea before anyone, especially Bob, can steal it and try to beat them to the punch. "We have a lot to go over."

Tyler pours himself a glass of water and takes a sip before he looks back at his father. "I'm assuming you'd like to discuss the idea that I had at the gala," Tyler says back to him. "About the facial cream."

"That's exactly what I want to discuss," Dominick replies to him with a grin on his face. "The idea is brilliant, but we have to move quickly. We have to get something concrete out before anyone else can beat us to this punch."

"You're worried about Bob and Roboto coming up with a similar product at the same time, aren't you?" Tyler asks him.

"Of course I am," Dominick tells him. "Bob has always wanted to compete with me in the business industry and this is a product that Roboto doesn't currently have. If he finds out that we are planning to release a facial cream, I know he will try to get a similar product out immediately."

Tyler nods back to him. "So, discretion is a must right now. No one can know except a select few employees."

"Exactly, you and I, marketing and our lab tech. No one else can know about this."

"Understood Dad," Tyler replies to him. "You work with marketing on the name and packaging. I'll go down to the lab and see what we can do."

"Good work Tyler," Dominick says to him as Tyler prepares to leave the office. "We have to do this right, son. Let's make it happen."

Scene Seven - MW Investigations

"I have to admit, I was rather surprised to get a call from the two of you this morning," Meggan tells Chris and Trenyce, as they move into her office and sit across from her. "What brings you guys by?"

Trenyce looks over at Chris and then back to Meggan. "I'm sure you've heard about the baby switch that happened a few years ago with my child and Andrew Pherson," Trenyce tells Meggan, who nods back to her.

"I did," Meggan replies to her. "I had my own dealings with Dave Victors, so I know exactly the kind of monster he was.."

Trenyce nods in agreement with Chris. "We need you to help us find the child that we lost. Can you help us?"

Meggan gulps back to them, as her mind races about the chances of finding a child that was stolen from the hospital and sold on the black market. "I'll definitely look into it," she tells them as they breathe a sigh of relief. "But I have to tell you, it won't be easy and I may not come up with anything concrete."

"That's fine," Trenyce quickly says back to her. "We just have to try. We have to try to find out baby."

Scene Eight - The Pier

"Answer me, Cory," Robin pleads with her husband. "Is Rebecca going to have your baby?"

Cory looks back into Robin's eyes and he can see how desperate she is for him to tell her that Rebecca isn't pregnant. But he can't do that; he knows that Rebecca is pregnant and that she is carrying his child. He feels his heart break inside his chest.

"Cory! Please, just tell me," Robin continues to beg her husband for some answers.

"I wish I didn't have to tell you this," he whispers back to her. "But Rebecca is pregnant. She's going to have my baby."

A single tear falls down Robin's cheek as she turns away from Cory. She covers her mouth to prevent herself from sobbing. Her worst fears have come true, her sister is having her husband's baby.

Cory reaches out to touch her shoulder but she quickly moves forward and then turns around to face him. "Please, don't touch me. Never again do you get to do that."

"Robin, please," Cory starts to plead with her.

"No, Cory," Robin cuts him off. "You slept with my sister and now you're having a baby with her. There's nothing left to say. This is unforgivable."

Before Cory can say anything, Robin walks past Cory in a hurry. Cory watches her run off and he runs his hands over his face. "What have I done?" he asks himself as he can't help but watch his wife run away from him.

Scene Nine - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Caroline?" Rebecca asks in shock as the doctor enters the room. "I didn't think I'd ever see you again after you shot Cory."

Caroline smiles and looks over at Melissa. "Your Mother helped me hide for a short time but we knew that we weren't finished with our plan."

Rebecca shakes her head. "I don't understand."

"You see," Caroline continues to tell her. "Robin and Cory should pay for what they did to my brother, Liam. If it wasn't for them, he'd still be alive today."

"How is this going to help me with a baby that I don't have?" Rebecca asks confused.

Caroline gets a grin on her face as she looks at Melissa. "Because, I'm pregnant," Caroline reveals. "And I'm going to give you my baby so you can pass it off as yours and Cory's."

The words hit Rebecca like a ton of bricks. She feels the blood drain from her face and before she knows it, she loses all ability to stand up. Melissa and Caroline watch in shock as Rebecca faints and falls to the ground.
