Scene One - The Sugarbowl

Kim sits at the bar window with her latte, her mind going a million miles a second about everything that has happened to her in the last day or so. First, the realization that Bob's memory had come back but he didn't tell her because he was trying to ensure that they would get back together is shocking to her. She thought that she was helping him regain his full strength back after his strokes; however, she can't deny that they were growing closer and she was enjoying it, to the extent that she told Tyler that she wanted to be with Bob again. She never imagined that he was lying to her just to keep her and Tyler apart.

After Kim blasted Bob for his lies, she realized that being with Tyler would have been the right thing to do for her and Blake. When she went to find Tyler, however, she found him in bed with Trenyce. Kim feels her eyes swell with water as she has no idea what to do now. The last thing she thought Tyler would do is sleep with another woman.

"Bob has lied to me so many times," she whispers to herself as she wipes her cheek dry. "But, he's never been with another woman. He lied to me so we could make it work. He wanted to be with me. He wanted our marriage to work."

The images of Tyler and Trenyce making love continue to flash before Kim's eyes; it's a sight that she can't seem to get out of her mind. "But Tyler," she sighs. "He went to another woman when he thought we were over. He turned to someone else. How can I get over that?"

She finds herself shaking her head. "I can't," she tells herself as she grabs her purse. "I have to go see Bob. I have to see my husband."

***

In the back booth, Eva and Victoria sit together going over some ideas for Eva's upcoming wedding to Dominick. Eva is so happy that her daughter is helping her plan her wedding. For so many years, Eva never thought that she would have a relationship with either another man or even her family; the fact that everything is coming together is almost unbelievable to her. Eva does know, however, that there is a dark cloud looming over her wedding because she knows that Frederick was brainwashing Felicia into believing she doesn't love Dominick anymore. If Dominick or Felicia knew about this, her wedding plans could be put to a stop. That is why she agreed to keep Frederick's secret; she wants to marry Dominick.

"What about these flowers?" Victoria asks her Mother as she turns her Ipad around to show her Mom the screen of the tiger lilies. "They could be so beautiful."

Eva nods back to her. "I'd love them. I wonder if we can get them shipped to Twin Peaks, they don't grow very well around here."

"Mom," Victoria smiles back to her. "You're marrying Dominick Robertson; I'm pretty sure that he can have anything delivered that you want for your wedding."

Eva chuckles back to her. "That's very true! This is fun, I'm enjoying planning my wedding with you, Victoria."

"I'm glad that I'm able to help you," Victoria replies to her. "I'm just glad you and Dominick were able to get to this point. I know it took him a long time to divorce Felicia."

Eva suddenly gets another guilt pain regarding Felicia. She puts her head down as Victoria looks back at her Mom. "Mom? Are you okay? Did I say something wrong?"

Eva shakes her head. "No, no," she lies to her daughter. "I'm just grateful to be in this position, I suppose."

"Don't beat yourself over the fact that Dominick and Felicia divorced. Marriages fall apart every day, and it had nothing to do with you. They were struggling before you came into the picture."

Eva nods back to her. "Thank you for that. Sometimes I need to be reminded of such things."

"Can we continue planning your wedding later?" Victoria asks her, as she checks her watch. "I have to head to the hospital. I have an appointment."

Eva arches her eyebrow back to her. "It's Paige's examination today, isn't it?"

Victoria nods back to her. "It is. I get to go and see if Paige has lost her virginity or not," Victoria says uneasily. "I can't wait for this entire mess to be over with."

"You and I both," Eva tells her. "Do you mind if I catch a ride with you? I'd like to be with Dominick while the examination happens."

"Of course, let's go."

Scene Two - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Dominick walks into the waiting room holding a coffee and a hot chocolate from the hospital cafeteria. He spots Paige sitting in one of the chairs looking a million miles away. He can't imagine what she is going through today; the fact that she has to go through a medical exam to see if she has ever been sexually active must be a hard pill to swallow for anyone, especially someone as young as Paige. Dominick wishes that Paige didn't have to go through with this, but he knows that Shane is trying to find a way to get out of taking responsibility for sleeping with a minor so this test is required. He wishes Leah was here; Paige could use her mother more than ever before.

"I brought you a hot chocolate," he finally says to his granddaughter. "I was hoping that it would make you feel better."

Paige looks back at her Grandfather and tries to put a smile on her face even though the worry is written all over her still. "Thank you," she whispers to him as he comes up and passes her the beverage.

Dominick sits next to her and takes a sip of his coffee. "Well," he begins to tell her. "I hope your hot chocolate is better than this coffee. I had forgotten how bad the coffee is at the hospital."

Paige can't help but smirk back to him. "It's probably a good thing that you don't remember how the coffee tastes here," she says back to him. "That would mean that you're spending too much time here and no one should have to do that."

"Look, Paige," Dominick continues to say to her. "I know that you're nervous about today and that's completely understandable. I just want you to know that this is for the best. We all have to understand what happened that night at the cabin. I know that you feel uncomfortable about this but it is only because you're so young that we are concerned about you."

Paige looks back at him. "I just wish my first time wasn't being exposed in such a public manner," she replies to him. "That's the part that I hate. And I hate that everyone is so mad at Shane. He didn't do anything wrong, and before you say otherwise, just stop, okay? I don't want to hear it from you, not today."

"I wasn't going to say anything," Dominick replies to her as he grabs her hand. "I just want you to know that I'm here for you. Your mother should be here for you in a time like this, God, I hate that she's gone."

"Me too," Paige admits to him. "Because all of this started when Mom died. Nothing has been the same since that day in Lake Tahoe."

"Isn't that the truth?" Dominick agrees with her. "I know I can't replace her, but you know that I'm always here for you, right?"

Paige nods back to him. "Thanks Grandpa. I just want this day to be over with. I really do."

Scene Three - The Tower's, The Penthouse; Cory & Robin's Home

"I think that's the last box," Robin tells herself as she finishes moving down the stairs of the penthouse and she arrives at a stack of boxes that she has packed. She has wanted to move out of the penthouse for some time now because Cory got Rebecca pregnant. After weeks of trying to find a place of her own, she finally found a townhouse that is in the same complex as Tyler's townhouse. And, she knew that Cory and Rebecca wouldn't at the penthouse all morning, so she thought it was the perfect time for her to complete her move.

"I just want to get out of here before Cory and Rebecca get home," she says to herself. "The last thing I need is for them to come here and we have some awkward moment." She still hates that her husband got her sister pregnant while she was away at a mental hospital getting her life back together after her child with Cory was stillborn. The idea that Cory is going to be a father now with Rebecca makes her sick to her stomach.

She turns around to open the door when it creeps open on its own. Cory and Rebecca appear in the foyer of the apartment and they look at Robin and all the packed boxes.

"Robin?" Cory asks her, surprised to see her at the penthouse as she hasn't been around in weeks. The last time he saw Robin, she made it clear that they were over so he wasn't expecting to see her today. "What's going on?"

"I'm moving out, what does it look like?" Robin snaps at him, as he and Rebecca move past her. "And, please, don't try to stop me. It won't work. I can't stay here. Not after everything that has happened."

"I wouldn't try to stop you," Cory admits to her. "I would have helped you if you really wanted to move out. You know that I don't want you to go but I understand why you have to go."

Robin sighs and looks over at Cory and then Rebecca. "How is everything going with the baby?" Robin finds herself asking her sister, immediately regretting the question. She knows that she will be an Aunt again but it still makes her heart break.

"Everything is going fine, just fine," Rebecca manages to say back to her. "Thanks for asking, Robin. If you ever want to go for lunch or something…"

"I don't," Robin cuts her off. "Not anytime soon, okay? I hope you understand. But the fact that you're having a baby with my husband makes you the last person I want to eat with."

"Sorry," Rebecca replies to her quickly. "I'm going to go into the kitchen until she's gone," she snarls as she looks at Cory before walking away.

Cory watches Rebecca move back into the kitchen before he turns back to Robin. "Don't you dare say anything to me about my attitude towards her," Robin warns him.

"I wasn't going to say anything," Cory admits to her. "I was going to ask you if you wanted help taking these boxes downstairs?"

Robin nods back to him. "Sure, thanks."

In the kitchen, Rebecca pulls her out cell phone from her purse. She finds Melissa's contact information before she sends a text message to her mother. "Robin's moving out. Things are progressing nicely."

She looks up and purses her lips. "This is just the start of Cory and I starting our life together," she whispers to herself. "Nothing will come between us now."

Scene Four - Robertson Enterprises, Donovan's Office

Donovan sits at his desk looking over some files for the potential facial cream that Tyler has started to work on. Dominick wants Donovan to come up with a grand marketing strategy for the facial cream, which is still a work in progress itself.

The last thing on Donovan's mind, however, is the marketing strategy in front of him. He can't seem to forget the last time he saw Lukas; they were at the gym and Lukas seemed very cryptic. He can't place his finger on it, but he could tell that something was going on with Lukas. He just hopes that he is okay; Donovan realizes that Lukas has been under a lot of stress lately as he was trying to decide which guy he wanted to have a future with.

"What's going on with you Lukas?" Donovan asks himself out loud. Before he can have another train of thought, there's a knock on his office door. "Come in."

The door to the office opens and Craig enters holding a bag from the Sugarbowl. "Hey," he smiles as he comes into the office. "I thought I'd surprise you with a muffin from the Sugarbowl."

Donovan smiles back to him as he stands up and moves out from being behind his desk. "That was a nice gesture on your part," Donovan tells him as he moves over. "Do you want a cup of coffee?"

"Nope," Craig tells him back as he looks into Donovan's eyes. "I want something else."

Donovan arches his eyebrow. "What would that be?"

"This," Craig says as he licks his lips before leaning in and kissing Donovan. The kiss lasts only for a moment before Donovan pulls back. "That was great."

"Was it?" Donovan asks him in surprise that Craig kissed him. "I thought I told you that I didn't think it was a good idea for us to happen. Not while Lukas is still trying to decide what he wants to do."

"You did make that pretty clear," Craig tells him back. "But I've done something that you should know about."

"What's that?"

"I ended things with Lukas," Craig reveals to him. "I was tired of waiting. I'm not going to let my life pass me by while Lukas makes up his mind. I'm worth more than that."

"Wow," Donovan says in surprise, suddenly realizing if being dumped is why Lukas was in such a odd mood the last time he saw him. "I know you had said that before but I didn't expect that to happen."

"I got tired of waiting," Craig replies to him. "So, where were we?" he asks as he moves closer to Donovan again.

Before they can do anything else, there's another knock on Donovan's office door. Donovan turns around and sees Andy standing there. "I'm not interrupting, am I?"

"No, of course not," Donovan tells his friend. "It's not often I get so many visitors in one day. What's up, Andy?"

"I found something out the other day," Andy reveals to them as he moves into the office. "And, I was struggling with whether I should say something or not and I decided that I had to say something because there's too many people involved for me not too."

"It sounds pretty serious," Craig replies to him.

"It's about Lukas," Andy replies to them both. "He's left town. And I got the feeling that he isn't coming back."

Scene Five - The Richardson Estate; Frederick, Meggan & Lukas' Home

"So, you're sure that Lukas left?" Meggan asks her father as she pours herself another cup of coffee and then turns around to see Frederick sitting in a chair with a cup of coffee himself.

Frederick nods back to her. "I believe he went back to Santa Barbara," Frederick reveals to her. "He told me that he needed some space and just wanted to get back to his roots."

Meggan realizes that Lukas was still struggling with his decision between Craig and Donovan and that is probably why he realized that he needed some time for himself. She wishes that he had confided in her because she would have told him that leaving town would have meant that he could lose both men. The fact that Frederick doesn't know he's gay is another issue in itself.

"I had the jet ready to go and he took off last night," Frederick continues to tell Meggan, not realizing that she knows more of the story than he does. "I had to call the house staff to ensure that they were ready for Lukas' return."

"I just wish he had said goodbye," Meggan says back to him. "I know that he wanted this time but I'll miss him."

"Once he is settled, I'm sure he'll call you. You two have grown so much closer since he's been back in the United States."

"That's true," Meggan replies to him as she takes a sip of her coffee, suddenly remembering that Vinny approached her recently and asked her if she knew anything about a surprise that Frederick was planning for Felicia. Normally, Meggan wouldn't pay any attention to Vinny but something about the tone of his voice made her realize that what Vinny potentially overheard wasn't sitting well with him. She can't place it but now she wants to get to the bottom of it. The fact that she knows some part of Frederick's past with Jemma makes her more curious.

"Do you mind if I ask you a question?" she asks her father as she moves closer to him.

"Of course," he replies to her. "You can ask me anything, you know that. What's going on?"

Meggan sighs. "Are you planning some kind of surprise for Felicia?" she asks him as he gets a serious look on his face. He doesn't understand how anyone could have possibly have found out about what he is planning for Felicia.

"Why would you ask me that?" he asks her back. "What kind of surprise would I have for Felicia?"

Meggan shrugs her shoulders. "I don't know, that's why I'm asking. Is there something going on?"

Frederick forces a smile on his face. "Trust me when I tell you that I'm not planning anything for Felicia," he tells his daughter. "She's in a fragile place right now, I wouldn't want to do anything that could cause her to have any kind of setback."

Meegan nods back to him. "I thought I'd ask. Thanks for your honesty, Dad."

"Always, my love."

Scene Six - The Victors Mansion; Vinny, Daisy & Jemma's Home

The curtains are still drawn in Jemma's room as she is still asleep in her large king size bed. She thrashes around, however, as her dreams are anything but sweet.

"Frederick," she calls out as she thrashes around again. "Please, I'm beggin' you, stop! Just stop!"

Daisy opens the door to her Aunt's room and quickly turns on the lights as Jemma calls out for Frederick to stop once more. She moves over to Jemma's bed and puts her hand on Jemma's arm. "Aunt Jemma, it's me, you're fine," Daisy tells her as Jemma bolts up in the bed, out of breath.

"Wha, what happened?" she asks as she tries to get her heart rate back down to normal.

"You were having another nightmare," Daisy explains to her, trying not to be concerned about her. "And you were calling out for Frederick to stop again."

"I was?" Jemma asks her, trying to play it like she doesn't remember her dream. The truth is, however, that she remembers her dream like it was happening in front of her again. She feels the sweat on her forehead continue to bead. "I don' remember what I was dreamin' about. I wish I did, honey, but I don'. I feel hot though, would you mind if I went for a shower."

"Of course not," Daisy replies to her. "I'm just concerned about you. This isn't the first time you've had a nightmare that involved Frederick. I wish I understood why this man was in your dreams."

"It's nothin' for you to worry about, okay? I'm starvin' hungry, meet you for breakfast after my shower?"

Daisy uneasily nods back to her. "Of course, Aunt Jemma," she says, knowing that something is going on with her Aunt. The question is what? And why is Frederick always haunting her dreams?

Scene Seven - The Calimo Mansion

"I didn't think I'd see you again so soon," Bob admits to his wife as he lets her into the living room and he follows her in. He knows how upset she was with him the previous day when she learned that he had gotten his memory back but didn't tell her because he was trying to ensure that they would have another chance at their marriage. "I'm glad that you're here, though. It gives us a chance to talk. Would you like a glass of red wine?"

"I'd love one," Kim replies to him as he pours her a glass and passes it to her. "Thank you. Are you going to drink with me?"

"Nah," he tells her. "It's too early in the day and I have rehab soon. You know that I have to leave for Pennsylvania later today, right? They were able to get me into their rehabilitation center on a rush basis and I'd like to get back to my usual self as soon as I can. My family and company need me back at full strength."

Kim nods back to him as she takes a sip of her wine before she sets the glass down. "That's part of the reason why I am here. I've done a lot of thinking since the last time I saw you," she reveals to him as he sits next to her on the sofa. "And I realize that you lied to me but I also realize that you lied to me because you wanted us to work."

"I do want us to work, Kimberly," Bob replies to her. "I want this marriage to work."

"Before your first stroke, you made me choose between you and Blake," Kim tells him. "I won't lose my son, Bob."

Bob waves his hand in the air. "I was a fool," he admits to her. "I've seen you with that boy and he is a very sweet child. I understand that he is a part of being with you now."

"Then," Kim tells him as she gets tears in her eyes. "I'd like for us to make this work. But I really want us to make this work this time, Bob. No more back and forth. No more lies."

"I want our marriage to work more than anything else, Kimberly."

"I want that too," she smiles back to him as a single tear falls down her cheek. He leans in and kisses her on the lips.

"Welcome back, my darling," he says their lips part. "I need you to be the matriarch of this family while I'm away. Robbie and Natasha, they will both need you while I'm away with Shane's pending trial."

Kim nods back to him. "I can be there for them. And, I will still work on the facial cream at Roboto, Bob. I won't let that fall to the side lines either."

"See," Bob smiles back to her. "That's why I love you. You know all the right things to say. There is something I want you to know, however."

Kim arches her eyebrow as she picks up her wine glass. "What's that?"

"I realize that you're a woman with needs," he begins to tell her. "Part of the reason you turned to Tyler in the first place is because I was ignoring some of those needs."

"Bob, we don't have to go down this road again."

"No, we do, Kimberly," he continues to tell her. "Because, I will be gone to rehab for a couple of months and I don't want you to feel lonely while I'm gone."

"I don't understand what you're saying," Kim admits to him, wondering what Bob is talking about.

"I'm saying," Bob tells her as he looks her in the eyes. "While I'm away, if there's a man that you'd like to be with, I give you permission, if you will. A free pass to get it is what you need. As long as it ends when I come home and you're honest with me about it."

"I don't know what to say," Kim admits shocked.

"How about we just focus on us for the rest of the day?" Bob suggests to her as he kisses her again. "Because I've missed my wife."

"And I've missed my husband," she smiles back to him.

Scene Eight - Twin Peaks General Hospital

Victoria removes her latex gloves and throws them into the trash can before she looks back at Paige, who is laying on her hospital bed with her legs spread open. Victoria can see how humiliated Paige is, so she quickly says, "It's okay, it's over," to Paige.

Paige quickly rolls over on the bed and faces the hospital wall. "You can have all the time in the world that you want, okay?" Victoria tells Paige. "The results won't be revealed until court, that's what the Judge requested."

Paige doesn't say anything. "And for what it's worth, Paige," Victoria continues to tell her. "I'm so sorry that we had to do this today."

Paige faces the wall as she hears Victoria leave the hospital room. A tear falls down Paige's cheek as she can't believe how far she has taken this lie of sleeping with Shane. Victoria just poked and touched her in ways she never thought someone would touch her like. All that she is thinking about now, is how she wishes Leah was here; she needs her mother.

"I need you so much right now Mom," she whispers to herself as another tear falls down her face. "I feel so lost."
