Scene One - MW Investigations

"I was trying to call you yesterday morning," Chris tells Trenyce as they sit side by side in the waiting room of MW Investigations. The two are waiting to see Meggan to get an update on her search for their baby that was stolen from them. They are hoping that because Madeline was being blackmailed by Dave Victors years ago to switch the babies, Meggan may have insider information that could track down the baby. It's still a long shot because they know that their baby was sold on the black market.

Trenyce takes a sip of her coffee that she got to go from the Sugarbowl and recalls how the previous morning she was with Tyler having hot, passionate sex. She wanted Tyler badly, mostly because she was upset with the fact that she saw Chris and Helen share a kiss and it bothered her. She needed some kind of release and Tyler was exactly that.

"Yea, sorry, I was in a meeting at work," she quickly covers with him. "Was it anything important that you wanted to talk about?"

Chris shakes his head no. "Nah, it's just not like you to not pick up."

"I didn't have my phone on in this meeting but it was productive," she tells him with a sly grin on her face.

"Well, that's all that matters then?" he replies to her quickly.

She nods back to him. "I was thinking about something," she says back to him. "I know you said you and Helen Black were just friends…"

"We are friends," he informs her, not sure where she is going with this.

Trenyce chuckles a little to herself. "I know, I know," she waves her hand in the hair. "But you have a history with women, Chris. And this is the longest you've been single, maybe ever. I'm just wondering if there is something more there."

Chris looks back at her and finally nods yes to her. "I am interested in Helen, yes," he admits to her, not realizing that he is crushing her. A part of her had hoped that maybe the kiss she witnessed was just a one-time thing but the fact that he is interested in her means that he wants more from Helen then just friendship. "Does that bother you?"

Trenyce rolls her eyes at Chris. "Why would that bother me?" she quickly says, trying to cover her hurt feelings. "You're a free man. Helen isn't but that's none of my business."

Chris looks straight head and gulps. "I didn't think you'd care."

"I don't."

"Great, then let's change the subject."

"Yes, let's."

Scene Two - The Victors Mansion

The curtains in Jemma's room are still closed as she lays in her bed sleeping. She stirs a little, as her dreams are unsettling. She thrashes around as she starts to say "no" a little bit louder.

"Please stop," she cries out as she moves again in the bed. "Frederick, I'd said enough!"

Daisy opens the door to her Aunt's room and hears what her Aunt is saying. Daisy quickly rushes over to the side of the bed and puts her hand on Jemma's shoulder. "Jemma," Daisy calls out as Jemma thrashes again in the bed. "Jemma, please wake up."

Jemma suddenly opens her eyes and looks around the room in confusion. "Where am I?" she quickly asks as she realizes that she's still in her room.

"You're at home," Daisy replies to her. "You're fine. You were having a nightmare."

Jemma nods and lays back down, her head hitting the pillow again. "Sorry if I worried you."

"No, don't apologize," Daisy says back to her quickly. "I just want to make sure that you're okay. You were calling out for Frederick to stop. What was Frederick Richardson doing to you in your dream?"

Jemma feels her face go pale as she looks back up at Daisy. "I…" she begins to say back to her. "I don't remember. I don't know what I was dreamin' about. It was probably nothin' at all. Notin' for you to worry your pretty head about."

Daisy arches her eyebrow back to her Aunt. "If you say so," Daisy tells her. "But if you ever want to talk about it, you know I'm here, right?"

Jemma nods back to her and smiles. "Thanks child. Now, I should get up and get dressed. See you downstairs?"

Daisy uneasily smiles back to her and nods. "Sure, see you downstairs."

Once Daisy as left the room, Jemma pulls the covers up tighter to her to face as she shuts her eyes. "No one can every know what happened," she whispers. "Not now, not ever."

Scene Three - The Sugarbowl

Vinny walks into the coffeehouse and scans the place before he makes his way into the lineup. He was hoping to see Daisy at the coffeehouse because she is late for a meeting they were supposed to have at City Hall. He orders his coffee and moves over to the coffee bar to add cream and sugar. While he does, he quickly sends Daisy a text message to find out about her whereabouts.

As he is about to leave, he can't help but see Frederick sitting at the window looking over some notes. Vinny recalls how at Andy's gala, Chris and Trenyce revealed that Frederick shipped Andrew away to a boarding school just to ensure they aren't around him as much. Vinny knows how upset Trenyce was by this and he doesn't like the fact that Frederick is using Andrew as a way to hurt Chris and Trenyce.

"Good morning Doc," Vinny fakes a smile on his face as he approaches Frederick.

Frederick looks up from his paperwork and acknowledges Vinny before he returns his eyes to the work in front of him. "Is there something I can help you with, Mr. Victors?" Frederick asks him.

"Actually there is," Vinny changes his tone to become more serious causing Frederick to look up at him. "I know that you sent Andrew away to a boarding school. And I've heard your excuses as to why you did that," Vinny continues to tell him. "But let me make myself perfectly clear about something right here and right now. You better not do anything, and I mean anything, to hurt any member of my family. Do I make myself clear?"

"Are you threatening me?" Frederick asks him, somewhat surprised by Vinny's words to him.

"Call it what you will, Doc," Vinny replies to him. "Just make sure you take my warning seriously."

Scene Four - The Calimo House; Robbie's Home

"Have you heard from Shane or his lawyer at all this morning?" Jeff asks Robbie, as he comes into the house. Robbie hadn't been back into the house he shared with Leah since Jeff kicked him out after Jeff sued for half of Leah's estate, so he takes a moment to look around the living room when he moves inside to notice any changes. Suddenly, he feels like the last year and a half is a blur. The house is so familiar to him; it's where he and Leah were going to raise their daughter together. It's where he and Leah were supposed to live their lives together. Now, Leah is dead and Paige had sex with a much older man.

Robbie pours some orange juice into a glass and takes a drink. "Nope, and I'm not expecting too," he tells Jeff. "That's really between Shane and his lawyer. Any communication going forward would happen with the DA, not me."

"Makes sense," Jeff tells him. "Look, I wanted to thank you for arresting Shane. I know it couldn't have been easy considering he's married to Natasha."

"I don't care who you are, if you hurt Paige you will pay for it," Robbie says back to Jeff, who nods in agreement. "That's why I wanted you to be here today. Felicia should be here any time. I want your help in telling her what happened."

"Do you think that's a good idea?" Jeff asks him.

"I do," Robbie says back to him quickly. "The more people in Paige's corner, the better. She may feel embarrassed at first but the family needs to know what Shane did. It's best that it comes from us then someone else."

"Makes sense," Jeff agrees with him. "Thanks for including me."

"You're Paige's father, you should be here," Robbie tells him, as he hears the doorbell ring. "That's Felicia, are you ready for this?"

"As ready as I'll ever be," Jeff whispers as Robbie moves past him and towards the door.

Scene Five - Twin Peaks Police Station; The Holding Cells

Natasha moves down the aisle of the holding cells following the guard in front of her, thinking about how Shane handled spending the night in jail. She recalls how she told Robbie and Jeff about Shane's affair with Paige and neither man was very happy about it, and understandably so. Still, she feels partly responsible for Shane's arrest. She didn't think that Robbie would arrest her brother but she can understand why he would go those lengths.

She soon arrives at Shane's cell and looks inside, spotting her husband sitting on the small cot in the cell. He doesn't look his usual self. He has more stubble than normal and he has large bags under his eyes; she can tell that he probably didn't sleep well the night before.

Shane looks up from sitting on the bed and sees his wife and immediately feels his heart break. Natasha seeing him in this state is absolutely devastating to him and embarrassing.

"You came?" he asks in a whisper as he stands up and moves closer to the bars that separate them.

"Of course I came," Natasha replies to him. "I had to see you. I had to make sure that you are okay."

"I'm fine," he says back to her, his voice still low. "I hate that you have to see me like this."

"I can't believe that Robbie actually arrested you," she admits to him. "But I can understand why he felt like he had too."

Shane shakes his head and moves away from the bars. "Nothing about this makes sense," he tells her. "Why can't I remember what happened? I've had my share of wine before in a night and I remember everything! I don't understand why that night at the cabin is so different."

"I don't know what to say," she replies to him as she gulps a little. "Are you sure you can't remember anything more? Even the smallest detail might help you."

Shane looks down. He's tries over and over again to remember everything about that night but no matter how hard he tries, he just draws a blank. "Nothing," he whispers to her. "I don't remember anything after I went up the stairs. It's almost like I blacked out."

Natasha looks back at him, wanting so desperately to believe her husband. "But then that would mean that Paige is lying," she tells him.

"I know," Shane says with frustration growing inside of him. "And that makes even less sense. I guess that's it then. I guess that means I'm guilty."

"Had anything like this happened before?" she grills him.

"What do you mean?"

"Had you and Paige been growing closer for some time?" she asks him, as he feels the blood from his face go pale as he thinks about the few stolen kisses he and Paige had been sharing.

Scene Six - Bruno's Gym

Andy steps into the main gym area and looks around, trying to see if there's a free treadmill that he can use. He is hoping to run to get back into better shape since he feels like he's let himself go a little bit after Reese's passing. He spots one and quickly moves to the machine and hopes on, and starts to jog a little. He's about to put his headphones into his ears, when he realizes that Lukas is on the treadmill next to him.

For a moment, Andy can't help but notice the bulging biceps that Lukas has and his erect nipples through his white tank top. He shakes his head knowing that Lukas is just a friend and already going through a lot with Donovan and Craig.

"Hey Lukas," Andy says as he continues to jog. "Looks like we had the same idea."

Lukas pulls a headphone out of his ear and smiles back to his friend. "Yea, it's good to clear your mind and get some physical in, huh?"

"Totally agree," Andy nods back to him. "I haven't seen you since the gala, how've you been?"

"Not bad," Lukas tells him as he takes a swig of his water. "Same old, still haven't really come to a decision about Donovan and Craig."

Andy wonders how much longer the men will continue to let Lukas not make a decision. It's been going on for some time already and while Donovan can be patient, Andy knows that Craig is not.

"I know that you're struggling with that," Andy says back to his friend. "But you've been wrestling with this decision for awhile now. Don't you think it's time you finally made a decision? You can't keep everyone in limbo."

Lukas grins back at him, noticing how attractive Andy is. "Maybe I should forget about both of them and start new?" he winks at Andy, who chuckles a little.

"You love them," Andy replies to him. "Moving on with someone new while you still have feelings for other people is never the best decision to make."

"You're right, you're right," Lukas nods as he turns his machine off and hopes off. He grabs a towel and dries his face. "I'm going to head to the showers. Thanks for the pep talk."

"Good luck," Andy tells him as Lukas walks off.

Scene Seven - The Sugarbowl

"How come you're not at the office?" Craig asks Donovan as he approaches his friend at the coffee bar, as Donovan puts a lid on his latte.

Donovan looks up and smiles at the sight of Craig. "I needed something and ended up here with this latte."

"I need something too, good thing I ran into you," Craig winks back to him as he moves closer to him. Donovan feels his face blush as Craig touches his free hand. "Come back to my place."

Donovan moves his hand away from Craig's. "I have a meeting soon. And we are still waiting for Lukas' decision."

Craig sighs and runs his hands through his hair. "I'm tired of waiting for Lukas," Craig admits to him. "I'm a man, I have needs, as I'm sure you do too. We could solve that problem together."

"You're terrible," Donovan grins back to him.

"I'm just being honest," Craig continues to tell him.

"I don't know if or when Lukas will ever be ready to come out, Craig," Donovan admits to him. "I know that's what you want and you do deserve that but I'm not sure that will ever happen. He doesn't think his Dad will accept him."

"So where does that leave me?" Craig asks him, wondering what he should do.

Donovan shrugs his shoulders. "I'm sorry," he whispers back to him. "I'm just trying to be honest with you."

"I know, I know," Craig says back to him. "I'm just frustrated with this entire situation."

Scene Eight - MW Investigations

"I was surprised to hear from you two again so soon after our initial meeting," Meggan admits to Chris and Trenyce as they sit in her office across from her. "I haven't had much time to really do much digging."

Trenyce looks back at Meggan trying to understand. "It hasn't been long," Trenyce begins to say back to the PI. "I guess we were hoping that because Madeline left you in charge here and she was involved in the baby switch you would have some kind of insider information."

Meggan sighs a little. "Madeline was the one who switched the babies in the hospital," Meggan tells them. "But once the switch was over, Dave had your child. He then sold it on the black market. That's not much information to go off of. That doesn't mean I'm not trying. I've been to the hospital to look at records and old surveillance footage. This case though, this may take some more time."

Chris grabs Trenyce's hand as he can sense her disappointment. "That's fine," he tells her. "We know that you are trying your best."

Meggan nods back to her as Trenyce makes eye contact with her. "Did Madeline ever tell you about the baby?" Trenyce asks her as Meggan nods a little. "Do you know if it was a boy or a girl?"

Meggan gulps wondering if Trenyce is strong enough to handle this information or not. "Please, tell me Meggan."

"It was a girl," Meggan finally says back to her.

A tear falls down Trenyce's face. "A girl," she whispers as she covers her mouth in shock. "I have a baby girl out there somewhere."

Scene Nine - The Calimo House; Robbie's Home

"That sick son of a …." Felicia yells just before she stops herself from cursing. "I can't believe that Shane would do this to my precious granddaughter!"

Robbie looks at Jeff and nods giving Jeff the signal to move closer to Felicia to comfort her after she found out about Shane and Paige's affair. Jeff puts his hand on Felicia's back and caresses it.

"Robbie and I are just as mad as you are," Jeff tells her as she looks back at him.

"In fact," Robbie intervenes. "I had him arrested last night. Shane spent the night in jail."

"Good, that's where he belongs! I hope he spends a lot of time in jail for taking advantage of Paige!" Felicia continues to yell, her blood boiling.

Before anyone can say anything else, they all hear the front door close. Paige emerges into the living room. "What's going on," she asks as she moves a piece of hair behind her ear. "I got this urgent text to meet you here," she tells Robbie. "What is this all about?"

"We know what happened," Jeff informs her as he moves closer to her and pulls her into a hug. "How are you?"

"Wait, you all know what?" Paige asks in shock and embarrassment.

"We know what happened at the cabin," Felicia replies to her, hoping that Paige will let them support her. "I'm so sorry."

"Oh my God!" Paige shrieks in shock. "I can't believe Shane told you! I asked him not too!"

"Natasha told us," Robbie reveals to her. "And we needed to know, Paige. We are here to help you!"

"Well the first thing you can all do by helping me is minding your own business!" Paige tells them. "I'm not a child anymore."

"You're not an adult yet either," Jeff reminds her of her age.

"I don't care about that! How old were you when you first had sex, Dad?" Paige asks Jeff, who suddenly goes quiet. "Exactly. Don't try to tell me I'm a child still. I can't believe this is happening."

"There's more," Robbie announces to her. "Shane was arrested last night."

"What?" Paige continues to be floored by the information they are giving her.

"For statutory rape," Robbie continues to tell her as she feels the blood leave her face.

"Is he okay? Where is he? I have to see him!" Paige says as she feels her heart start racing.

"You'll do no such thing," Jeff puts his foot done. "Going forward, you are not to see Shane Glubbs, do I make myself clear?"

Paige shakes her head in disbelief. "I can't believe this is happening," she whispers before she turns and rushes out of the house.

Scene Ten - Twin Peaks Police Station; The Holding Cells

"Why would you ask me that?" Shane asks Natasha, who is waiting for his answer. "Why would you think that something was going on between Paige and I for awhile?"

Natasha gulps and continues to look at her husband. "Someone saw you," Natasha reveals to her husband.

"What do you mean? No one could have seen anything! Because nothing happened!"

"So," Natasha continues to ask him. "You and Paige didn't kiss in your office?"

Shane runs his hand through his hair. "Okay, yes, she kissed me. I told her that it couldn't happen again. Wait, how did you know about that?"

"A nurse saw you," Natasha tells him. "And I have to tell you Shane, as a lawyer, having a witness see you two kiss before the night at the cabin, it won't help your case."

"I don't care about my case" Shane yells back to her. "I have to find a way to remember that night! I have to find a way to clear my name in all of this!"
