Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"How is this going to help me with a baby that I don't have?" Rebecca asks confused, as she listens to Caroline explain that she is going to help her and Melissa with their plan. Rebecca doesn't understand because Melissa revealed that she isn't pregnant with Cory's baby; in Rebecca's mind there's no way that this plan can work if she's not really carrying Cory's child.

Caroline gets a grin on her face as she looks at Melissa. "Because, I'm pregnant," Caroline reveals, as Rebecca looks back in shock. "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.

"Rebecca!" Melissa rushes over to her daughter and puts her fingers on Rebecca's neck to find a pulse. "Rebecca, darling, come on, get up."

Caroline bends down and looks at Rebecca. "She's fainted probably from the shock of learning what we are going to do."

"I'll get her some water," Melissa replies to Caroline. "Prop her up so we can give her some to wake her up."

Melissa stands up and walks over to the sink that is in the hospital room. She returns as Caroline is shifting Rebecca's body upwards. "Drink some of this," Melissa says to her daughter. The water hits Rebecca's lips and she slowly opens her eyes. "That's a good girl. Keep drinking some water," Melissa tells her.

"Are you feeling better?" Caroline asks Rebecca, who slowly nods back to her.

"I must have fainted," she says slowly.

"You did," Melissa replies to her.

"I think I heard that Caroline is pregnant," Rebecca tells them as her memory comes back to her. "And that she is going to give me her baby to pass off as Cory's. Please, Mom," Rebecca pleads with her Mom as she looks into Melissa's eyes. "Tell me that this isn't your plan. Please tell me that this isn't happening."

Scene Two - The Sugarbowl

Adam grabs his coffee from the barista and moves over to the coffee bar to put some cream and sugar in his cup of java. He takes a sip of it to make sure it tastes okay before he grabs a lid for his cup. As he does, he looks over and spots Robin sitting in the back corner booth of the coffeehouse. He watches her for a moment and realizes that she looks a million miles away. He grabs his coffee and moves over to the back booth, where she is sitting.

"Hey, Robin," he says as he arrives at her table. "I haven't seen you in awhile, how are things?"

Robin looks up at Adam, causing her to snap out of her train of thought. She can't help but think about everything that happened this morning already; Cory told her that Rebecca is pregnant with his child. She has no idea how to cope with the fact that her sister is going to have a baby with her husband. The news has gutted her in the worst possible way.

Robin shrugs back to Adam. "Honestly Adam, I have no idea what I'm going to do right now," she says as a tear falls down her cheek.

Adam quickly sits across from her and grabs her hand. "Don't cry," he replies to her. "Tell me what's troubling you. Maybe I can help."

Robin manages to chuckle a little as she wipes her cheek dry. "I don't think anyone can help with this," she replies to him. "You know I was away for awhile, right?" she asks him as he nods back to her. "Well, why I was gone, Cory slept with another woman."

Adam's eyes open wider in surprise. "And now that woman is pregnant," Robin continues to tell him.

Adam tries to hide his shock and disappointment. "I'm so sorry that you are going through that."

"You know the worst part?" Robin continues to tell him. "The woman," she says as another tear falls from her eye. "Is my sister."

"Rebecca is the one who is pregnant?" Adam asks in shock as Robin nods back to him. "Oh, Robin. Do you know what you're going to do?"

Robin shakes her head no. "I've already ended it with Cory. I can't be with a man who slept with my sister and is going to have a baby with him. I mean, I just can't be with him, you know?"

Adam nods back to her. "If there's anything I can do, anything at all…"

"I appreciate you listening to me vent about this," she replies to him quickly.

"Anytime," he quickly says back to her. "I mean that. Keep my number handy, and anything you need to get something off your chest, you let me know."

Outside the coffeehouse, Cory walks by and looks inside. He spots Robin in the back booth talking to Adam. He runs his hands through his hair as he thinks back to his discussion with Robin on the pier earlier in the day when she ended things with him. He can't seem to get the look of absolute heartbreak in her eyes out of his mind.

"How could I have been so stupid?" he asks himself as he stops looking inside the window and looks up into the sky.

He looks back at Robin before he keeps walking. He is tempted to go inside but he knows that he has to give her space right now. The last thing he wants to do is pressure her into getting back together. "I will get you back Robin," he whispers to himself as he keeps walking. "If it's the last thing I do, we will be together again."

Scene Three - The Calimo Cabin

"What is going on in here?" Natasha asks as she opens the door to the bedroom at the Calimo cabin and sees a half-naked Shane and Paige standing in front of each other. Her mind starts to race about what is going on. She knew that Shane came to the cabin the night before but she was prevented from going because of Bob's stroke. Now that Bob is seemingly better, she drove up to the cabin first thing in the morning. The last thing she expected to find was Shane with Paige, especially since both of them are half-naked and the bed is a mess. "Please tell me this isn't what it looks like!"

Paige and Shane gulp as they look at each other and then back at Natasha, who is fuming about the possibilities of different scenarios that just happened.

"Would someone answer me?" Natasha yells at them, demanding to know what happened.

Paige rushes over to grab some clothing and she puts it over her body. "I didn't know Shane was coming to the cabin last night," she begins to explain to Natasha. "I wanted some alone time so I left Andy's gala early to come here for some space."

"And you know that we had plans to come here," Shane interjects and tells Natasha.

"While I was headed up here," Paige continues to explain to Natasha. "I got a flat tire and I happened to call Shane for help."

"I was already on my way here," Shane continues to tell his wife. "So I picked her up and brought her here with me last night."

Natasha looks at the room. "So you happened to end up in the same bed with no clothing on?"

Shane gulps as he looks at the messy bed and then realizes that he's still only in his boxers. He moves over to put some jeans on.

"It was my fault," Paige explains to Natasha. "I brought some wine from the gala and we had a couple of glasses."

"You were drinking?" Natasha asks her. "You aren't old enough to drink yet, Paige!"

"I know," she replies quickly to her. "Shane even said that last night but I told him that I always drink when I come up here. I didn't want to be parented."

"I think I drank too much because I don't remember anything that happened last night," Shane reveals to Natasha.

"Really Shane?" she asks him back, not believing her husband. "How much did you drink?"

"Both bottles," Paige quickly says back to Natasha. "Shane had a lot more than I did."

"You're not answering my question," Natasha says back to both of them. "How did you end up naked in this bed together?"

Shane looks back at Natasha and then over at Paige. "I…I don't remember," he says, embarrassed that has transpired.

"Do you remember, Paige?" Natasha asks her, as she nods back to her. "Well, what happened? Tell me!"

Scene Four - The Calimo Mansion

"Bob, dear, are you up?" Kim calls out as she opens the front door to the mansion and throws her purse on a bench near the door. She walks into the living room and sees Bob sitting in an arm chair next to a roaring fire as he reads a book.

"I'm right here, darling," he says to her as she looks over at him with a smile on her face. "What's gotten you into such a good mood?"

"I was at the office early this morning," she reveals to him as she pours herself a glass of brandy and then moves over to the chair next to Bob's. "I couldn't wait to start working on this facial cream idea."

Bob puts his book down and smiles back to her. He can't help but feel pride in his wife when she is speaking so passionately about a product for his company. This is one of the reasons that he has fallen back in love with her and one of the reasons that he can't let on that he has his memory back; he wants to make sure that he can keep his wife and their life that they have created together.

"I love seeing you so passionate about this project," he replies to her as he stands up and walks over to pour himself a glass of brandy. "Did you make good progress this morning?"

"I spoke to the lab tech," she tells him. "And he's already working on something. I told him some of the aspects that I'm looking for and he said he'd get right on it. I think we are already on the right track."

"That's fantastic news," he says as he returns to his chair. "I propose a toast," he tells her as he looks into her eyes.

"Oh, what are we going to toast to?" she asks him as she smiles back to her husband.

"To my beautiful wife and her incredible idea for this facial cream," he winks back to her as their glasses touch and then they both take a sip of that.

"I just hope I can deliver this for you," she tells him as she finishes swallowing her brandy.

He leans in and kisses her. The kiss lasts longer than she expects it to, but she finds herself enjoying kissing her husband. She moves her hand behind his head to extend the kiss and make it more passionate. When their lips finally part, she smiles as she looks into his eyes. "You already are delivering everything I could ask for," he whispers back to her.

Scene Five - Tyler's Townhouse

Tyler pours himself another cup of coffee and thinks about her how quiet it is in the house still. Felicia had an early appointment and Blake is at a play date, so he has the place to himself. As he takes a sip of his coffee, he can't help but think about the last time he saw Kim and how she was cold to him because she blamed him for Bob's most recent stroke. He knows that he did goat with Dominick and almost reveal his relationship with Kim to an amnesiac Bob but he is just tired of waiting for her to come back to him. Now, it sounds like Kim wants to stay with her husband, which is mind boggling to him. All he ever wanted to do was give Blake a family with him and Kim; he still does. If Kim came to him right now, Tyler would happily be with her.

"What am I going to do with you Kim?" he asks himself as he looks at the clock and realizes that he isn't even dressed yet but he should at the office. He knows that Dominick is pressing him hard to get this facial cream out on the shelves before anyone else, especially Bob, comes out with a similar product. "I guess I should shower."

Just as he stands up, he hears his doorbell ring. He arches his eyebrow wondering who could be at his door so early in the morning. He walks over to the door in his boxers and looks through the peep hole. He opens the door and sees Trenyce standing on the other side.

"I hope it's okay that I came over unannounced," she says as she comes into the house getting out of the cold air from outside. "I just didn't know where else to go."

"It's fine, what's wrong?" Tyler asks her as she moves back into the living room with Trenyce.

Trenyce turns around and then realizes that Tyler isn't dressed yet. She can't help but admire the attractive man in front of her. "It's just…" she says as she licks her lips, still looking at him. She knows that she came over to see him because she is upset by seeing Chris and Helen kiss. She didn't know why she wanted to see Tyler but now that she does see him, she can't deny that he looks good.

"It's just… what?" he smirks wondering if she's going to finish her thought.

She blushes a little as she moves closer to him. "I need you today," she admits as she puts her hand on his firm, toned chest. She leans up and kisses him.

Their lips part for a moment. "I thought after New Year's we weren't going to do this anymore," he whispers to her.

"Are you saying you don't need this too?" she asks him as she moves her hand down to the edge of his boxers.

"I didn't say that," he grins back to her before he kisses her again.

He pushes her up against the wall as their kiss becomes more passionate. His lips move to her neck as she starts to moan softly. "I need you so badly Tyler," she whispers to him as he starts kissing her with more intent.

Scene Six - The Sugarbowl

Daisy opens the door to the coffeehouse and quickly moves inside as she needs another coffee to get through the rest of her morning at City Hall. She grabs her coffee from the barista and is about to leave when she spots Chris sitting at the bar by the window. She realizes that her ex-husband seems to be very deep in thought so she walks over to him.

"Chris," she says as she reaches him. "Is everything okay? You look a million miles away."

"Daisy, hey," he replies to her quickly. "Yea, everything's good. Better than good, actually."

Daisy arches her eyebrow wondering what has put him in such a good mood. "Care to share?"

Chris looks back at her and nods. "Trenyce and I, we saw Meggan this morning. She agreed to help us try to find out child."

"That's great news," Daisy says back to him. "I hope you know that it may still not work."

"That's what Meggan told us to. It just feels good to have some kind of hope though, you know?"

Daisy nods back to him. "I think Trenyce needs that. She has been through so much."

"We all have," he says back to her.

"I still get the feeling that there's something else that has put a smile on your face this morning," Daisy teases him.

Chris laughs a little as he thinks back to kissing Helen and then sharing a close moment with Trenyce at Meggan's office. He's always been a ladies man, and he knows that. Right now, it seems like he could potentially have two interests.

"I guess there is more," he slowly tells her. "I guess I have a crush on someone."

Daisy laughs back to him. "Why doesn't that surprise me," she winks back to him. "Just be careful, okay? You don't exactly have the best track record with women."

"Ouch!" he laughs back to her. "But don't worry, there's nothing serious…yet!"

Scene Seven - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"This is happening," Melissa tells Rebecca, who is back to standing up after her fainting spell but is still drinking water. "Cory needs to believe that you're having his child."

"Why would you give me your child?" Rebecca ignores listening to her Mom and asks Caroline about giving up her child.

Caroline puts her hand to her stomach. "I only got pregnant for this purpose," she slowly reveals to Rebecca. "What you have to realize is that my dearest brother, Liam, would still be with us today if it wasn't for Cory and Robin. They killed him in cold blood! And neither one ever paid for that crime. So, this is my way of getting some kind of justice for my brother. Seeing those two apart is the perfect way to avenge my brother's death."

Rebecca shakes her head. "I don't know…"

"Stop all of this right now!" Melissa yells at her. "We are giving you a chance to be with your precious Cory. You've gone on and on about how much you love that man, which I will never understand, but this is your chance to be with him! You should be jumping up and down right now and thanking us for giving you this gift!"

Rebecca looks back at her and realizes that she does love Cory. She just never thought that being in love would come with so many complications.

"You're the only person who can stop this plan," Caroline tells Rebecca. "Now, all you have to do, is say you'll go along with this plan and everything is set."

Rebecca nods back to them. "You're right," she whispers. "This is my chance to be with Cory. This is my chance to have the life I've always wanted."

"I knew you'd come around," Melissa tells her with a devilish grin on her face. "This is going to happen and it's going to ensure Cory and Robin are never together again."

Scene Eight - The Calimo Cabin

"Paige, please tell me what happened here last night," Natasha continues to plead with her, desperate to know the truth.

Paige sighs and moves a piece of hair behind her ear. "We were drinking downstairs," Paige begins to tell them. "And, then we kissed."

Shane shuts his eyes as he remembers kissing Paige the night before. He runs his hands through his hair as Natasha looks back at Paige with intent.

"Then what happened?" Natasha asks her.

Paige gulps. "We came upstairs, okay?" she says quickly.

Natasha shakes her head in horror. "You two had sex?"

Paige looks back at Shane and then over at Natasha. "We had sex," Paige admits to everyone. "Shane and I had sex last night."

"I can't believe this!" Natasha screams out in anger. "How could you do this?"

"I'm sorry…" Shane stutters back to her. "I don't remember. I don't remember anything after the kiss. It's all a blur."

Natasha looks back to Paige. "And you're sure? You're sure that you had sex with my husband?"

When Paige doesn't respond, Natasha moves closer to her. "Answer me! Did you have sex with my husband?"

Paige looks back at her as a tears fall down her face. "YES! I had sex with him! I had sex with Shane last night!"
