Scene One - The Calimo Cabin

"I can't believe this is happening," Natasha says as she rushes down the stairs of the Calimo cabin. She just heard from Paige that the night before she and Shane had sex. Natasha recalls how Shane said he doesn't remember the previous night because of the amount of wine he drank but Paige just confirmed her worst fears. Natasha feels gutted right now; after everything she and Shane have been through in trying to put their marriage back together, this is the last thing that their marriage needed. Not only did Shane betray her, but he slept with a minor. The thought disgusts Natasha to her very core.

"Nat, wait," Shane calls out after his wife as he follows her down the stairs. "Can we just talk about this, please?"

Natasha opens the door to the cabin but looks back at her husband with disgust. "Talk about what, Shane? The fact that you slept with Paige? Do you know how old she is? Do you know that she is my niece?"

Shane moves closer to her as he shakes his head in disbelief. He wishes he could remember everything that happened the night before but the truth is, he can only remember going up to bed after he and Paige kissed. He doesn't remember being with her after that. "I know all of that," he whispers back to her. "I wish I could remember because none of this makes sense. You know me, you know that I wouldn't just do something like this."

"Why would Paige lie about something like this?" Natasha asks him, feeling her blood boil.

Paige arrives on the stairs and listens to the conversation unfolding between Shane and Natasha. "I don't think that Paige would lie about this," Shane replies to her. "I just think…I wish I could remember everything that happened."

"I can't look at you right now," Natasha tells him as a tear falls down her cheek. "I can't believe you did this when we were supposed to come here to fix our marriage."

"Nat," he begins to say but she looks back at him.

"No, save it Shane. I have to get back to town. I can't be around you right now," she tells him as she rushes out of the cabin.

Shane moves to the door and watches his wife get into her vehicle and drive away. He slowly shuts the door and looks up at the stair case as Paige continues to walk down the stairs. "I'm sorry that you had to go through that," he tells her.

She shakes her head. "Don't apologize. This is partly my fault as well. We shouldn't have had sex last night," she tells him.

"We can't go back in time now," he replies to her quickly.

"I need you to do me a favor," she says back to him.

Shane arches his eyebrow. "What's that?"

"You can't tell anyone what happened. My Dad's, Robbie and Jeff, they can't know what we did."

***

As Natasha drives, she feels like her head is spinning with everything that just happened. She doesn't know how to process the fact that her husband slept with her niece when she and Shane were supposed to put their marriage back together.

"How could you do this to us?" she asks herself as she looks down at her phone and realizes what she has to do.

She uses her Bluetooth to dial a number in her phone. "Hello," a voice calls out on the other end of the line.

"Robbie, it's me," she says out loud. "I need to see you in an hour or so at my office. I can't take no for an answer."

"Okay," Robbie replies to her. "It sounds important."

"It is," she says back to her brother. "And bring Jeff. This involves him too."

Scene Two - Tyler's Townhouse

Trenyce lays in Tyler's king size bed and tries to catch her breath from the intense love making session that she and Tyler just enjoyed. She recalls how she came over to his townhouse hoping that this would happen because she was upset with the fact that she saw Chris and Helen share a steamy kiss. She had forgotten how good of a lover Tyler actually is, even though they did make love on New Year's Eve.

She looks up when Tyler, naked, walks into the room with two glasses of water. "I thought you could use this," he smiles to her, his toned chest still sweaty from the intense work out he just had.

She sits up and grabs the cup and takes a mouthful. "Thanks," she says after she swallows the water down quickly. "I needed that."

"I thought so," he winks back to her. "So, here we are again."

"Yea," she smiles back to him as she thinks back to their conversation after their last sexual encounter where he admitted to still being in love with Kim and not wanting to hurt Trenyce in the process. "Here we are again. Look, Tyler," she starts to tell him. "I know that you have feelings for Kim. I understand that and respect that. I would never want to come between you and her."

"I don't know if there's anything to come between at this point," he reveals to her quickly as he thinks about how Kim is telling him that she wants to make her marriage to Bob work.

"Well, even if there is, until that point, I'd be okay if this was a regular thing," she says as she leans up and puts her hand on his leg. "I needed today. I'm okay if it's just sex. I'm mature enough to handle that."

He smiles back to her and kisses her. "I needed today too," he says as their lips part. "Let me think about that, okay?"

"You do that," she says back to him. "I hate to run but I have a busy day planned."

He chuckles. "Yea, I should shower and head to the office too."

"I guess I might see you there," she winks back to him as she puts her bra on.

Scene Three - The Pampa Grill

Cory takes a sip of his Bloody Mary as he waits for Rebecca to arrive at the restaurant. He requested that they meet today so they could discuss their future and what it means for both of them. He, however, can't get the look out of Robin's eyes when he told her that Rebecca was pregnant with his baby. She looked absolutely devastated, not that he could blame her. He just wishes there was something he could do or say to make everything okay again but he knows that it won't be possible because Rebecca is pregnant with his baby. And, after everything that he went through with his last child, in some ways he views this as a blessing.

"I just wish I was having this baby with Robin," he whispers to himself as Rebecca approaches the table with a sly grin on her face.

"A bit early to be drinking, isn't it?" she asks as she sits across from him.

Cory chuckles back to her. "I figured I should get my drink on now before the little one comes," he laughs back to her. "What can I get you? This is on me, by the way."

"You're too sweet," she tells him. "I can still get my own bill, though, Cory."

"Nah, Rebecca, come on, it's the least I could do."

"Fine," she waves her hand in the air. "I won't argue with you. I'll have an orange juice, please," she tells the waiter, who is at the table with them.

"How are you feeling?" he asks her, curious about the baby and her well being.

"I'm fine," she shrugs her shoulders. "I mean, I had no idea I was even pregnant, so I guess that's a good thing?"

"No morning sickness or cravings?"

"Not yet," she laughs back to him. "Knock on wood, I don't want to jinx this. What's going on with you? Does Robin know about the baby?" she asks and then quickly gulps as she thinks of crazy plan that Melissa has come up with; her pretending to be pregnant and then having Caroline Fitzpatrick give her a baby is so out there but she has to do it because she wants to be with Cory. While seducing Cory was just a plan at first, she didn't mean to actually fall for him. Now that she has, she is going along with Melissa's plan in hopes that she will be able to have a real relationship with him.

Cory nods back to her uneasily. "Yea, I told her," he says slowly to her. "She didn't take it so well. She was really upset."

Rebecca feels her heartbreak inside her chest. She hates doing this to her sister. "I hate that we did this to her," she says back to her.

"I know," Cory replies to her. "But you know what? We can't hold that against our baby. This is our baby, Rebecca. And, I want you to know that I will be there for you and this baby in every possible way I can."

She smiles and reaches across the table and grabs his hand. "I'm so relieved to hear you say that," she tells him. "Cause I need you. I need us to do this together."

"Oh sweetheart, there you are," Barbara announces to Helen as she arrives at a table. "I'm so glad you decided we should come out for breakfast. I couldn't find parking out there."

Helen smiles back to her Mom. "It's fine, I've ordered you a coffee, it should be here soon."

"That's so kind of you," Barbara tells her daughter. "I get the feeling there's more to you not wanting to cook this morning. What's on your mind? Why did you really want to have breakfast with me?"

Helen gulps and looks back at her Mother. She knows that Barbara was the first one to suggest that she and Adam get a divorce because of his affair with Natasha but she wasn't so sure that was the best idea at first. She really second guessed the thought when Adam and Dawn both opposed the idea at Andy's gala for Reese. But then something else happened with Helen; she and Chris shared a kiss a few weeks ago. Helen hasn't been able to think of anything else since their lips touched in the park that day.

"You're right," she replies to her Barbara finally getting her head out of her own thoughts. "I did want to discuss something with you."

"I'm all ears," Barbara replies to her daughter, as she puts some cream into the coffee that was just delivered to her table.

"I think you're right," Helen quickly says back to her. "I think I should divorce Adam."

"Oh!" Barbara gasps as she claps her hands together. "I'm so glad that you realize that."

"But, Mom," Helen cautions her. "I'm going to need your help with Dawn. She was really upset at the idea of Adam and us separating."

Barbara reaches over and touches Helen's arm. "Sweetheart, you know I will do anything for you. I'm just glad that you came to your senses? Does that mean you and Adam talked?" Barbara asks her, as she recalls Adam asking Helen for a chance to discuss their marriage together without interference.

Helen shakes her head no. "No, we haven't spoken."

"Then what brought on this suddenly decision?"

Helen gulps. "I just feel like it's the right thing to do."

Barbara doesn't pick up that something else is going on with her daughter. She just smiles back to Helen. "Well, I am thrilled. And like I said, anything you need, anything at all, you let me know. I'll help you through this, dear."

***

"Mom, why is there champagne chilling? Usually we'll have a mimosa but not straight champagne at breakfast," Victoria asks Eva, as she sits next to Donovan after getting a request to join Eva for breakfast this morning.

"Yea, Mom," Donovan chimes in, agreeing with Victoria. "And if we are celebrating something, why isn't Natasha here to join us as well?"

Eva smiles back to her children as she knows that she wanted them to hear her wonderful news from her instead of someone else. News travels fast in Twin Peaks, especially when it comes to engagements.

"Natasha went to the Calimo cabin with Shane for a few days as they want to try to repair their marriage," Eva explains to her kids, as Victoria rolls her eyes slightly knowing more of the insight in the troubled marriage. "And yes, it may be early but I have wonderful news that I couldn't wait to share with you and it's cause for celebration."

"Well, don't keep us waiting," Donovan smiles back to his Mom. "What's this news?"

"We'll have three glasses, please," Eva tells the waiter, who arrives and pops the cork. Eva laughs a little when some of the champagne spills out of the opening of the bottle. "I'm engaged! Dominick has asked me to marry him!"

She flashes the large Rockwell diamond ring to her children. "Oh Mom!" Victoria gasps. "I know how much this must mean to you. After everything you and Dominick have been through, you must be so happy."

"Yea, Mom, this is a really big step. Congratulations," Donovan echoes Victoria's statements.

"Thank you," Eva beams back to them. "It is a big step. And I've waited so long for this."

"Nothing will stop you from getting married to Dominick," Donovan replies to her, causing Eva to pause and think about her secret: the fact that she knows Frederick has been brainwashing Felicia into believing that she doesn't have feelings for Dominick anymore. "You two have been through so much. This is so long overdue."

Eva continues to have a glazed look on her face. "Mom? Are you okay?" Victoria asks her, causing Eva to snap out of it.

"Yes, yes, I'm fine," she lies to them. "I'm just thinking about all the planning I have to do! You two must help me, of course!"

"Let's toast," Victoria tells them as they all pick up their champagne classes. "To Mom and Dominick, may you live happily ever after!"

Scene Four - Tyler's Townhouse

"Seriously, Frederick, you didn't have to drive me all the way home," Felicia tells her doctor as they open the door to her house that she lives in with her son. They just have a doctor's appointment at Frederick's office and he agreed to drive her home; to her dismay, he didn't put her under hypnosis again to see if she has anymore memories that she isn't unlocking on her own. He had told her that if she has any memory flashes that it would be a good idea to go back under, but there's no point in going under hypnosis for the sake of going under hypnosis.

"It was the least I could," he tells Felicia back as he closes the door. "Besides, I wanted to make sure that you were okay with my decision not to put you back under hypnosis."

Felicia arches her eyebrow as she looks back at her doctor. "I mean, what you said makes sense. I shouldn't go under hypnosis if I don't know if there's nothing to remember, and I trust you whole heartedly. I just want to make sure that I remembered all aspects of my life."

"And you will," Frederick tells her as she comes up to her and puts his hands on her shoulders. "Like I said, if you have any more memory flashes, then we can discuss the possibility of more hypnosis."

"You're right," Felicia nods back to him. "Would you like some coffee? I can go put a pot on."

"That sounds great," Frederick replies to her. He watches Felicia scamper off to the kitchen and that's when he pulls an IPod out of his pocket. He quickly walks over to the door that leads into Felicia's room and opens it. He walks inside and quickly scans the room, looking for Felicia's IPod. When he finds it, he walks over to it and replaces it with the one he pulled out of his pocket. He puts Felicia's IPod in his pocket and then quickly leaves the room, just in time for Felicia to come out of the kitchen.

"Okay, coffee is on," she smiles back to him.

"You know," he tells her. "I just remembered that I have another patient coming over shortly. I need to get back to my office. Rain cheque on the coffee?"

"Sure," she tells him. "But I'll hold you to that."

"I wouldn't have it any other way," he replies to her. "Why don't you have a relaxing morning, maybe listen to some music and enjoy a coffee?"

"That sounds lovely!"

"Chat soon," he says as he grabs his coat and leaves. Once outside, he knows that he put subliminal messages on Felicia's IPod that will ensure that she doesn't remember her feelings for Dominick.

"I just hope that it works," he whispers to himself as he walks off. He knows everything he has worked towards depends on this.

Inside the house, Felicia walks into her bedroom and grabs her IPod. She puts her headphones on and starts listening to some Barbara Streisand. As she gets into the music, she doesn't even notice the words being said to her, "You don't love Dominick," whispering back to her, benefit the sound of the music.

Scene Five - Robertson Enterprises

Tyler sits at his desk, typing furiously into his key board. He is working on the facial cream idea that he launched to Dominick the night of Andy's gala for Reese. He knows that Dominick wants to push this product quickly so Robertson Enterprises can get it on the shelf before a major competitor, especially Roboto. That being said, Tyler also knows that they have to do this facial cream properly; there's no point in releasing a product that isn't going to stand up against any other facial cream currently on the product shelf.

His phone rings and he quickly picks it up. "Hey," he says into the phone. "Yea, I'm reading the report now. And it all makes sense. But we are still missing that key ingredient in the cream that will prevent wrinkles. We can't move forward until we have the ingredient!" he tells the lab tech on the other end of the phone. "Look, I know that you're trying, but you're going to have to try a little harder because my father won't accept this as it currently stands! So, keep working and keep me posted."

He slams the phone down and then lets out a large sigh. "This has to work," he whispers to himself. "The future of this company depends on it."

Scene Six - The Calimo Cabin

"Please, Shane," Paige pleads with the doctor. "Promise me that you won't tell anyone, especially Jeff or Robbie, about what happened here last night."

Shane sighs and moves closer to the fire place. Having been by the door for awhile when Natasha was leaving has given him a chill. He knows that if anyone, especially Robbie, a cop, found out that he and Paige had sex, he could be in serious trouble because she is a minor.

"Look Paige," he begins to say back to her.

"Please stop talking to me like I'm a child!" she yells back to him. "I heard enough of that from Natasha earlier. I think I proved last night that I'm not a child."

Shane blushes back to her, wishing that he could remember the entire night. "Fine, okay," he tells her. "I won't say anything. But you have to know, what happened last night, it can never happen again."

Paige puts her head down as her eyes fill with tears. He moves closer to her and tilts her head up as a tear falls down her cheek. "Oh, Paige."

"I'm fine," she whispers back to him. "It's just…you were my first."

Shane feels the blood drain from his face. "I'm…sorry."

"Don't apologize," she whispers back to him. "I wanted it to happen. And it was amazing for me."

Shane, not knowing what to say or how to respond, looks back at her. "We should get back to town. You wanna go pack your stuff?"

Paige nods back to him. "Yea, sure. I won't be long."

Shane sighs heavily as Paige walks up the stairs. "I don't know how I got myself into this mess," he whispers to himself. "Or, how I'm going to get out of it."

Scene Seven - The Legal Firm; Natasha's Office

Natasha quickly walks through the lobby of her office and moves towards her office. She opens the door and sees Robbie and Jeff both standing waiting for her.

"Sorry I took so long to get here," she announces to them as she takes her coat off. "I was at the cabin and some of the roads were still pretty snowy."

"You made this sound urgent, what's going on?" Robbie asks his sister, hoping that everything is okay.

"It's not okay," Natasha replies to them with a stern, cold voice. "And I'm not sure it ever will be again."

"You have to stop talking in codes," Jeff tells her. "What is going on? Why did you want me to be here?"

"After Andy's gala," Natasha begins to explain to them. "Shane and I had plans to go to my family's cabin to try to put our marriage back together. It seems we weren't the only ones who had the idea of going away."

"Who else wanted to get away?" Robbie asks her.

"Paige," Natasha reveals to them. "It turns out, she got a flat tire on the way to the cabin and she called Shane for help."

"That makes sense, they work together," Jeff chimes in.

"It also turns out that Paige took a couple of bottle of wine from the gala and she and Shane drank them, mostly Shane," Natasha continues to tell them. "And then, they slept together."

"What?" both men ask at the same time, shocked by her revelation.

"Are you sure?" Jeff asks her in horror.

"Shane doesn't remember because he was so drunk but Paige told me the truth this morning when I arrived there and found them half naked," Natasha continues to spill the details of the events.

"That son of a bitch!" Jeff fumes, livid that someone took advantage of his daughter.

"Does he know that Paige is a minor? " Robbie asks her, feeling his blood boil over the thought of Paige and Shane being together.

"Look, all I know is what I've told you guys. I thought you should hear it from me instead of through a third party," Natasha replies to them.

"I'm going to make that son of a bitch pay," Robbie says looking over at Jeff, who nods back to him.

"Look at that," Jeff grits his teeth, as he makes eye contact with Robbie. "We agree on something."
