Scene One - The Courthouse
"Your honour," Lois Kam states as she stands up from her chair.
"The State calls Dr. Shane Glubbs."
Despite everyone knowing that Shane would have to testify at the trial,
there is still whispered conversation amongst the court room as Shane
stands up. He looks down at Josh, who gives him a nod of approval. Shane
knows that this is his chance to tell his side of the story; so far, much
of the testimony has been rather damaging to his case because it has been
half-truths, in his mind. Shane looks back at Natasha for a moment before
he turns and walks up to the front of the court room. As he walks, he
recalls his wife's testimony, where she admitted she thinks that he is
guilty. He still can't believe that she said that to everyone.
"Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but
the truth so help you God?" Judge Franklin Ross asks Shane, whose
hand is on a bible.
"I do," Shane replies.
"You may be seated."
Shane follows the Judge's instruction as Lois Kam moves out from behind
"Dr. Glubbs," she begins to say to him. "How long have
you been working at Twin Peaks General Hospital?"
Shane doesn't hesitate. "Well over 15 years. I've made my entire
career at that hospital."
"And, when did you become the COS?"
"In the fall of 2015," he continues to tell her.
"When did Paige Claus become your assistant?" Lois asks him
"Mid to late summer of last year," Shane clears his throat a
little, hating where Lois is going with the questioning. It's like he
already knows what is coming next.
"Was that before or after you discovered your wife had been unfaithful?"
Lois asks him.
"Objection!" Josh says to the Judge, hoping that he can stop
Lois from asking these questions.
"Overruled Mr. Levitt," Franklin replies. "Ms. Kam is clearly
trying to show motive for Dr. Glubbs possibly wanting to sleep with someone
else. I will warn you though Ms. Kam, don't get out of line."
"You never did answer the question, Dr. Glubbs. Did Paige become
your assistant after you discovered your wife had been unfaithful?"
Lois continues her line of questioning.
"I believe Paige was already my assistant when I learned the truth.
The timing, though, it was all very close together," he tells her.
"How were you feeling after finding out about your wife's affair?"
Shane looks past Lois and at Natasha, who puts her head down. "Like
anyone in that situation, I was upset. How would you feel?"
"Upset enough to have sex with Paige Claus?" Lois asks him.
"Objection, your honour!" Josh yells this time as he stands
up and pounds his fist into the desk.
"Sustained," Franklin announces to Lois. "I warned you
"I'll rephrase my question," Lois continues. "When did
you start to become
closer to Paige?"
"I've always had a good working relationship with her, she's my assistant."
"That's not what I'm asking," Lois replies to him sharply. "When
did you first become intimate with her?"
Shane gulps and looks out into the crowd again. He can see that Paige
also has her head down. "I don't remember the first time that she
"You sick son of a bitch!" Robbie stands up from his chair and
yells. "You've been wooing my daughter for months!"
"Mr. Calimo sit down before I hold you in contempt of this court!"
Franklin smashes his mallet.
Kim stands up and moves towards Robbie. "Come on, let's go get some
water," she tells him as she guides him out of the court room.
"Ms. Kam, please continue," Franklin instructs her.
"So, just so we are all on the same page," Lois continues to
Shane. "You and Paige kissed a few times prior to the night of the
Shane nods to her. "She kissed me," he corrects her. "And
every time I told her that we couldn't have a relationship."
"But on some level you must have enjoyed the kisses?"
"Objection!" Josh says again to Franklin.
"Sustained. Move on Ms. Kam."
"The night at the Calimo cabin," Lois continues. "Did you
and Paige kiss?"
Shane shuts his eyes and knows that he does remember him and Paige kissing
on the sofa in the living room. "Yes."
"No further questions," Lois announces as she moves back to
"Dr. Glubbs," Josh begins as he stands up. "What else do
you remember about the night at the cabin?"
Shane shrugs a little. "Paige had brought some wine from a party
that had been held here town. Together, we drank two bottles. I did most
of the drinking, which I know I was wrong. I don't know how much she had
but I had at least a full bottle to myself."
"And after she kissed you?" Josh asks him. "What happened?"
"I honestly don't remember," Shane feels his lower lip quiver.
"I thought I went to bed. I thought I told her that we couldn't do
anything. But she said I asked her to go upstairs with her. God, I wish
I could remember."
"So, you don't actually remember having sex with Paige?"
Shane shakes his head. "The rest of the night is a complete blank.
I just woke up with her next to me."
"No further questions."
Scene Two - The Pampa Grill
"Are you sure you're okay?" Rebecca asks Cory as they sit side
by side in a booth and she is applying some ice to his shin where Caroline
kicked him. Rebecca quickly recalls how when she and Melissa arrived at
the restaurant, Cory and Caroline had just come face to face. Of course,
Cory recognized Caroline as Robin's doctor from Raven's Meadow and the
woman who shot him last fall. To escape, Caroline kicked Cory in the shin
and ran off. Rebecca realizes that it's the second close call they've
had in the day, as Robin almost saw Caroline talking with her and Melissa
on the pier in the morning. She knows that they have to be more careful
or their plan will be ruined.
Cory looks up at her and nods back to her. "I'll be fine. I think
I'll have one hell of a bruise, but I should be okay. I'm just more floored
that Caroline is back in town. I never thought I'd see her again, to be
Rebecca agrees with him. "Yea, something is definitely going on with
her. Although, her brother lived here right? Maybe they have more family
"Yea, maybe," Cory replies to her. "Look, she's dangerous.
I need you to be careful. I don't want anything bad to happen to you or
Rebecca smiles and grabs his hand. "That's so sweet that you're worried
"I'm worried about both of you," he informs her.
Just then Robin comes up behind their table and can hear what the two
of them are talking about. She hates that her husband is so worried about
her pregnant sister. She spots Adam sitting at a near-by table but she
can't help but wait a moment longer to hear the rest of Cory and Rebecca's
"I was thinking," Cory continues to tell Rebecca. "What
if you moved back into the Penthouse? I know you moved out but with Caroline
back, I don't want to take any chances. She shot me when I was helping
Robin escape the hospital; the woman is unhinged."
Rebecca smiles as she realizes that Cory seeing Caroline is working even
more to her advantage than she thought. "Of course I'll move in with
Robin rushes away, devastated by what she just heard. Part of her expected
it, however, since she just moved out of the Penthouse. Still, it's a
hard pill for her to swallow.
"Hey, you look upset, is everything okay?" Adam asks his friend
as Robin arrives at his table, as the two agreed to have drinks together.
Robin shakes her head as she sits across from him. While she is trying
to be strong, the fact that Cory is seemingly moving on with his life,
his new life with Rebecca, is almost more than she can bear. "I just
heard something, something I should have expected but it hurts none the
Adam reaches over and grabs
her hand to show support to his friend. Cory, meanwhile, looks past Rebecca's
shoulder and sees Adam holding Robin's hand and feels his blood boil.
He knows that he has no right to be upset with Robin trying to move on
with her life, but he hates the sight of another man touching his wife.
And, Adam Black, no less. The man who cheated on his wife with Natasha
is now making inroads on his wife.
"Cory, are you okay?" Rebecca asks him, not realizing what Cory
is looking at.
"I'm fine," he lies to her. "Just fine."
Scene Three - Twin Peaks Executive Hotel; Suite 889
Caroline closes the door to her hotel room and tries to catch her breath.
She knows that running into Cory at the Pampa Grill was a close call;
too close. She realizes that she has to be more careful because she has
no idea what will happen now that Cory knows she is back in town. Moreover,
she's scared that if the police get involved, he could still charge her
for the shooting that happened last fall. That would be the worst possible
thing that could happen, she tells herself. The worry, however, is starting
to get to her.
"I have to ensure that no one knows where I am," she whispers
to herself. "I should probably check out of the hotel and lay low.
Maybe Melissa can find me somewhere to stay."
She moves closer to her cell phone but she bends over in pain as she starts
to cramp. "Ahhh," she gasps as she puts her hand on her growing
belly. "Calm down baby," she says to herself as she tries to
breathe through another on-coming cramp. "You'll be okay. You have
to be okay."
Scene Four - Twin Peaks Courthouse
"I can't believe your Dad yelled at Shane like that," Dawn tells
Paige as they walk together during the recess of the trial. "I've
never seen him so mad before."
"Me either," Paige admits to her. "This is tearing everyone
up. This isn't good, not at all."
"Shane said everything we thought he would say though," Dawn
replies to her. "I mean, all you have to do is tell the Judge that
you wanted to be with him and this nightmare will be over."
"Will it be over?" Paige asks her. "I mean, what is happening
to everyone's life because of this trial? It feels like nothing will ever
be the same again."
Dawn pulls her into a hug. "Nothing is ever the same again,"
Dawn tells her. "And you're about to get everything you've always
wanted in Shane."
A single tear falls down Paige's cheek. "It doesn't feel like I'm
winning at all. It feels like I'm losing."
"Are you calmer now?" Kim asks Robbie as she passes him a glass
of water. She took him out of the court room after he stood up and yelled
at Shane. "You can't have any more outbursts or you'll get a fine,
or worse, maybe thrown in jail."
"I know, I know," Robbie replies to her as he drinks his water.
"He was just so smug up there. He has no idea what he's done to me
or my family."
Kim moves up to Robbie and hugs him. "Don't worry," she whispers
in his ear. "This is almost over and then we can all move on with
"I hope you're right," he whispers back to her. "And thanks
again. It's great that you're here with me."
"I wouldn't be anywhere else," Kim tells him as they exit their
embrace and smile at each other.
"Tell me Josh, how bad was that?" Shane asks his lawyer as they
sit side by side at their table in the court room.
Josh sighs and looks back at him. "It wasn't all bad," he tells
him. "The fact that you and Paige kissed before was bad, but we knew
that going in," Josh continues to tell Shane his thoughts. "But,
really, you not remembering plays in our favor. It's like you weren't
in your right mind. Now, all Paige has to do is reveal that she wanted
to be with you and we should be okay."
"So everything rests on Paige's testimony?" Shane asks him.
"Exactly," Josh replies to him. "And, I don't think she
will change her story now."
"That couldn't have been easy for you to hear," Felicia tells
Jeff as they stand in the foyer as she recalls Robbie calling Paige his
daughter during his outburst.
"It is never easy hearing Robbie refer to my daughter as his,"
he replies to her. "But I'm used to it. I know he means well."
"Are my ears hearing correctly?" Felicia smirks back to him.
"Are you defending Robbie?"
Jeff smiles back to her. "I know it's weird, huh? But, we've really
worked together for Paige the last few months. Nothing else matters."
"I'm glad to hear you say that," Felicia replies to him. "Because
I suspect that she will need us more than ever once the trial is over."
"All rise, the honourable Judge Franklin Ross resides," the
bailiff announces as the court gets ready to start again.
"You may be seated," Franklin tells everyone. "Ms. Kam,
the next witness, please."
"The state calls Paige Claus to the stand," Lois announces as
all eyes move towards Paige.
