Scene One - Twin Peaks Court House
"Your honour, the State calls Dr. Victoria
Franky to the stand," Lois Kam announces in the court room as Shane
turns around and looks at Victoria, who slowly stands up from her seat
in the pew.
She fixes her skirt quickly before she looks over at Robbie, who nods
back to her, before she starts walking towards the front of the court
room. She feels her heart racing inside her chest; she knows that she
has nothing to hide, but these kinds of experiences are never easy or
enjoyable. She hasn't been in a court room since Donovan's trial, a number
of years ago. And, she knows that her testimony could do a lot of damage
to Shane. The last thing Victoria wants to do is see Shane go to jail.
"Do you swear that the information you're able to give is the whole
truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?" Franklin Ross
asks Victoria, as she places her hand on a bible.
"I do," she replies, trying to calm herself down.
"You may be seated," the Judge advises her as Victoria sits
"Can you please state your full name for the record?" Lois Kam
asks her as she stands up again.
"Marbella Moretti," Victoria replies. "But I go by Victoria
Franky. I am a doctor at Twin Peaks General Hospital."
"And, for the record, you used to be married to Dr. Glubbs?"
Victoria smiles as she looks over at Shane. "A long time ago,"
she replies to Lois. "It feels like a lifetime ago, actually. Shane
is now married to my half-sister, Natasha."
"What kind of relationship do you have with Dr. Glubbs?"
"A very good one, I'd like to think. Shane and I remained friends
after our divorce. It helps that we are both doctor's at TPGH. We spend
a lot of time together at work."
"Have you ever seen him with Paige Claus before?"
Victoria nods her head back to Lois. "Of course I have," she
tells her. "Paige is Shane's assistant. It was only natural that
I would see them together."
"You were Shane's wife's doctor, correct?" Lois asks her next
as Victoria nods. "So, you were aware of the miscarriage Natasha
suffered as a result of an affair that she had?"
"Objection!" Josh Levitt yells as he stands up. "The doctor
can't divulge into another patient's medical records."
"Sustained," Judge Ross says as he looks at Lois. "Move
on, Ms. Kam."
Lois nods and looks back at Victoria. "You were the doctor whom recently
performed a court ordered medical exam on Paige Claus, is that correct?"
Victoria looks out into the crowded room and finds Paige, as she recalls
the day she completed the medical exam on her. This is the part of the
questioning that Victoria was dreading. "I did."
"Can you explain why you did this exam on such a young woman?"
Victoria sighs as she can see Paige's eyes swell with water. "The
court wanted to find out of Paige was still a virgin; to see if it could
collaborate with her story that she and Shane made love."
"And, what did the test results say?"
In the pew, Dawn grabs Paige's hand as they both await Victoria's response.
Dawn knows that this could make or break the case going forward. She quickly
looks over at Paige, who shuts her eyes. She can't bear the thought of
this being exposed in a courtroom.
"It showed that Paige had lost her virginity. There were signs of
sexual activity," Victoria announces as the crowd starts to murmur.
Dawn, meanwhile, breathes a sigh of relief, knowing that the sex toy she
gave Paige worked like a charm.
"Dr. Franky," Josh stands up as
he starts his line of questioning. "Is there any other reason that
this test would have shown that Paige had lost her virginity other than
having sex with a man?"
Victoria nods back to him. "I'm sure
there are other ways but the main way is through sexual activity."
"In your experience with working with
and knowing Dr. Glubbs, has he ever tried to have sex with a minor before?"
Josh asks her next.
"No, not to my knowledge."
"No further questions."
Paige rushes outside of the courtroom after the Judge called a brief recess,
thinking everyone needed a break following Victoria's admission about
Paige's sexual activity. The words keep replaying over and over again
in Paige's head; she hates that this is happening to her. She never believed
that her first time with a man would be exposed like this. She finds a
water fountain and bends over to take a drink, trying to cool herself
When she stands back up, she sees Dawn standing next to her with a sly
grin on her face. "We did it," Dawn whispers back to her with
glee. "Everything is going just perfectly!"
"Is it?" Paige asks her, horrified about everything that has
just happened to her.
"We are in the home stretch," Dawn replies to her, trying to
encourage her friend to stay strong. "All you have to do now is tell
the Judge that you wanted to be with Shane and everything will work out!
I'm so proud of you, Paige," Dawn tells her as she pulls her friend
into a hug.
A single tear falls down Paige's cheek as she thinks about what she is
doing. She doesn't know how much longer she can keep up with this. Thankfully,
it's almost over, she tells herself.
"Dawn, do you mind if I have a moment
with my daughter?" Jeff asks Dawn as they exit their embrace. Dawn
looks at Paige, who nods back to her, telling her that it's okay that
she's alone with Jeff.
"I'll see you back in there," Dawn
tells her as she walks away.
"Are you here to lecture me again?"
Paige asks Jeff as she wipes her eyes dry.
"No, I wanted to see how you were doing.
Victoria's testimony couldn't have been easy to hear," Jeff tells
her, as he moves closer to his daughter. "I hate that this is happening
"I'm fine," Paige lies to him.
"I just want this horrible day to be over."
Scene Two - The Pier
"I'll ask you again," Robin says
as she stands on the pier looking at her Mom and sister as she just over
heard them talking to someone about her. "Whom are you talking to
Rebecca gulps as she knows that behind her and Melissa is Caroline. They
can't have Robin see Caroline because it could ruin their plan to keep
Cory and Robin apart. The fact that Caroline is pregnant may be a sign
to Robin that Rebecca is not carrying Cory's child; Rebecca feels her
heart racing a million miles a second, as she tries to think of a cover
"Darling, you simply misheard," Melissa finally tells her daughter.
"We were talking about you, yes, but it's just the two of us here.
We were saying how good we thought you looked."
Robin arches her eyebrow as she isn't sure if she should believe Melissa
and Rebecca's story. She is sure that she heard them talking to someone
else and they mentioned her name. She can't place it but she suspects
there is something going on. After everything the two women in front of
her have put her through, can she really trust a word they are saying?
Rebecca then drops her purse and bends down to grab it. While she's doing
that, she notices that Caroline is not standing behind her and Melissa
anymore. Rebecca realizes that she must have scurried away. "Look
behind us," Rebecca tells her sister as she stands up and moves apart
from Melissa. "There is no one else here."
Robin looks past her sister and realizes that Rebecca is telling the truth;
there isn't anyone else around. "Okay, sorry for the confusion,"
Robin admits to them, suddenly feeling bad. "I'm going to carry on
with my run."
They watch Robin jog off before Melissa and Rebecca look at each other.
"That was close," Rebecca tells her as she breathes a sigh of
"Too close," Melissa replies. "We must be more careful.
Everything we've planned could be ruined if we don't."
Scene Three - Twin Peaks Court House
"Victoria's testimony probably did a lot of damage," Robbie
tells Dominick, as they stand in the foyer of the court house during the
recess that the Judge called. Robbie knows that Victoria admitted that
Paige's exam proved that she had lost her virginity will be a nail in
Shane's coffin; it proves that he did sleep with a minor. Robbie just
hopes that the Judge will still think that Paige is too young, despite
her saying that she wanted to be with Shane.
"I hope so," Dominick replies to him. "Shane needs to pay
for putting Paige through this."
Robbie nods back to him. "I couldn't agree more. He's just another
SOB that I want to get revenge on."
Dominick arches his eyebrow, knowing that Robbie still wants to get revenge
on Bob for his part in Leah's death. Dominick doesn't blame Robbie, but
he wishes that Robbie would hurry up with some kind of act of revenge.
"Have you thought of anything to get back at your father yet?"
Robbie shrugs. "I've just been so consumed with Paige and her ordeal."
"Well, have you heard that Bob has left town?" Dominick asks
"He did? Where did he go?"
"Some rehabilitation centre in Pennsylvania," Dominick reveals
to him. "He will be gone for a few months, accordingly to my sources."
Robbie nods his head. "Plenty of time to arrange something then,"
Robbie tells Dominick, who nods his head back to Robbie. Before either
man can say anything else, the elevator doors open and Kim steps off and
she looks over at Robbie before quickly moves up to him.
"Robbie, I'm so sorry I'm late," Kim tells him as she comes
up and hugs him. "I'm here to support you through the trial. Anything
that you need, anything at all, I'm here for you."
Robbie holds his stepmother and gets a smile on his face, suddenly thinking
about a way to get revenge on Bob. " Thanks, Kim. I appreciate that."
Victoria, meanwhile, comes out of the washroom door and sees Robbie hugging
Kim. She quickly turns her back on them, wishing that Robbie was comforting
her after her testimony. After all, she knows that her admitting to everyone
that Paige has been sexually active was very damaging to Shane's case.
She sighs before she turns and walks away from Robbie and Kim's embrace.
"How are you feeling?" Shane asks Paige, as she comes up behind
his table during the recess. She knows that she probably shouldn't be
seen with him but she thought he may be able to calm her down from her
Paige looks back at him, as he is still wearing his orange jump suit and
she suddenly feels even worse than ever. He's been in jail, and now, he
could face more and longer jail time. She hates that everything is happening
the way it is.
"As well as to be expected," she admits to him. "I hate
that I had to go through that exam. It was so humiliating."
"I can imagine," Shane nods back to her. "I wish I could
remember that night. If only I could
"I know you wish you could remember," she gulps, knowing that
if he remembered the truth would be revealed.
"I just wish that this wasn't happening. I wish there was a way to
stop all of this."
Paige looks back at him. "I should get back to my seat. Good luck,
Shane nods back to her before he turns around and has a seat. She looks
at him for a moment longer as she feels her heart break before she walks
"All rise, the honourable Judge Franklin Ross," the bailiff
announces as the room stands.
"You may be seated," Franklin tells everyone as he sits down.
"I hope you had a good recess. Miss Kam, please call your next witness."
Lois stands up. "The State calls Natasha Calimo Glubbs to the stand,
