Scene One - Cassie's Office

Paige looks around the office feeling rather nervous about her first therapy session that Judge Ross appointed her to attend after she revealed that she lied about sleeping with Shane the night at the Calimo cabin. She knows that she has to be here; but the fact that she will have to open up and share her deepest thoughts with a stranger, makes her very scared. She doesn't want the therapist to think that she is being silly for feeling the way she does. And, she knows that her therapist, Cassie Nova, has a sorted past in Twin Peaks. She's heard stories from her parents about some of the things that Cassie did in her past.

"You seem rather quiet," Cassie finally tells the young woman, as she passes her a bottle of water. "Drink some water and try to relax. I know the first time in therapy can be overwhelming for people but just think of this room as a safe zone, okay? Anything you tell me will stay between us."

Paige opens the bottle of water and takes a sip. "Thanks," Paige tells her. "I am a little nervous. I've never had to do anything like this before."

"That's usually the case with someone your age," Cassie replies to her quickly. "Most commonly, people your age would have seen a councillor if they were struggling at school or with family life."

Paige nods back to her, thinking about some of her co-students when she was living in Paris. "Now, why don't we start with something that has nothing at all to do with the trial that happened," Cassie suggests to her. "Why don't you tell me about your family life?"

Paige sighs and looks back at her. "It's kind of a mess right now," Paige admits to her. "Mostly because my Mom died a couple of years ago; nothing has really been the same since then."

"I'm sorry about your Mom," Cassie replies to her. "You must miss her a lot."

"More than I can describe," Paige agrees with her. "I feel like that's when everything started to go wrong in life. My Mom," Paige continues to tell her. "She was my rock, my everything. Nothing seems to be right now."

"Is that why you lied about sleeping with Shane Glubbs?" Cassie asks her.

Paige looks back at her. "I don't know why I lied," Paige admits to her. "I thought I was doing the right thing but I know how that it wasn't the right thing at all."

Cassie nods and gives her a sly smile. "And now, do you still have feelings for Shane? Do you still want to have a future with him?"

Scene Two - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Kim wait," Robbie calls out to her as Kim puts her hand on the handle of the door in Bob's hospital room. She is about to leave because she knows that both Robbie and Bob have treated her poorly in the last couple of days; first Robbie because he used her to get back at Bob for his role in Leah's death. And then her husband, because he practically threw her out of the house when he learned that she slept with Robbie, despite him giving her a free pass to be with another man while he was away at rehab. Kim just wishes that all the lies would stop. "You can't go, not until we get a few things straight."

Kim stops and turns around to look at Robbie as a single tear falls down her cheek. "Get what straight, exactly? How you used me to get back at your father? I don't really want to rehash that Robbie," Kim tells him as she wipes her tear away, her sadness turning into anger. "You have a lot of nerve even asking me to do that."

"I don't want to rehash anything," Robbie admits to her. "I wanted to say I'm sorry."

Kim looks back at him in surprise. The last thing she was expecting Robbie to say was that he is sorry for what happened.

"I just told my father the same thing," Robbie continues to tell her. "After we made love, I thought I would feel better about everything that happened, but I didn't. In fact, I felt worse because of the way I treated you and my father. I hate who I've become as a result of wanting this revenge. I know that it's too late because the damage is done, but I am sorry. I want to put all of this behind me and move on with my life."

"Isn't that sweet?" Kim snaps back at him. "It's too late, you used me! I feel like such a fool!"

"Kimberly," Bob interjects. "We've all made mistakes. I have, Robbie has, you have; the point is, we are trying to accept what has happened and move forward. I've forgiven Robbie and he has forgiven me. We are trying to put this family back together."

"Really?" Kim asks them, not sure if she should believe them or not. There have been so many lies that she has a hard time trusting them. "Because, I can't be lied to. Not anymore."

Robbie moves closer to her. "I'm over playing games," Robbie tells her. "I don't expect you to forgive me right away, but I am sorry for everything that happened. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me one day."

Kim looks over at Bob. "You really forgave Robbie?" she asks him as he nods back to her. "If Bob can forgive you and move forward, then so can I. I want to put all of this behind us and move forward with our lives."

"I have no right to be happy about this, but I am," Robbie replies to her as he gives her a quick hug. "I'm sorry again," he tells her as they exit their embrace. "Now, if you'll excuse me, I want to go see Victoria. I have another fence to mend. I'll leave you two to talk."

Robbie exits the hospital room as Kim looks at her husband. "I wasn't expecting Robbie to apologize."

"Nor was I," Bob admits to her. "But I meant what I said, I want to move forward with all of this nonsense."

Kim looks back at him with some worry in her eyes. "Does that mean you forgive me too? Do you forgive me for sleeping with your son?"

Scene Three - MW Investigations

Meggan sits at her desk typing furiously into her computer as she continues to try to track down Chris and Trenyce's biological child. She knows that they have a lead in Boston, so she hopes that the lead pans out because she would like nothing more than to find their child for them. As she types, she recalls how Frederick asked her to send the parents on a wild goose chase instead of helping them actually find their child. She can't believe that he would do such things because he wants some kind of revenge on them. She is glad that she told him no because it is her reputation on the line.

She looks up when she hears a knock on her office door. She doesn't exactly seem happy when she sees her father standing at the door. "Dad, I have a lot of work to do," she tells Frederick, who comes into the office.

"Is that any way to greet your father?" he asks her as he comes into the office and closes the door behind him. "I had to see you today and it couldn't wait."

"If this has anything to do with your request about Chris and Trenyce and their child…" Meggan starts to tell him, not wanting to him his excuses.

"It does, actually," Frederick cuts her off. "And before you say no again, I think you need to hear me out," he tells her. "I know that you're against the idea but what those two have done to Andrew and Savannah is unforgivable. I'm trying to uphold Savannah's memory. This is about your family too, Meggan. You have to remember that."

"Dad, I would help you with anything but this is my line of work. I can't risk my reputation."

"I know," Frederick nods back to her. "But, I had another idea that might help you change your mind."

Meggan arches her eyebrow. "And what would that be?"

"Your wedding to Jeffrey," Frederick begins to reply to her. "What if I offered the winery in Santa Barbara as the venue?"

Meggan looks back to him in surprise. "I haven't been home in so long," she tells him, surprised by his office, but taken by the idea of the family estate as a venue.

"You know that the winery would be a beautiful setting to get married," Frederick tells her. "Especially this summer, the grapes would be on the vines, the sun would be out every day…it could make your wedding the most beautiful day. What do you say? Help me out and you can have the wedding day of your dreams?"

Meggan looks back at him, knowing that she shouldn't feel torn by this but the idea of getting married at her family home, at the winery, makes her very excited. It would be the perfect setting, she realizes. She finds herself agreeing with her Dad. "Okay," she nods. "I'll do it. I'll help you. But, no one can know about this. Absolutely, no one."

Frederick gets a sly grin on his face. "Of course," he smiles. "Now, here's what you have to do."

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

"So, Jemma hasn't had any more nightmares?" Vinny asks Daisy as he pours her a glass of red wine and then passes it over to her. Vinny knows that his fiancé is worried about her Aunt because of the recurring nightmares that Jemma has been having; he also realizes that the fact that Jemma has been calling out Frederick's name during the nightmares, fuels Daisy's suspicions that Frederick and Jemma have a secret past together.

"She claims that she hasn't," Daisy replies to him before she takes a sip of her wine. "Which is a good thing because it was scary to see her like that."

"I just wonder what kind of dream she would be having that would involve Frederick," Vinny tells her as he sits next to her on the large sofa. "Every time we've tried to get to know if they share a past, nothing comes from it. I thought we were wrong."

"I did too," Daisy admits to him. "But the fact that she's now having nightmares about him, I am convinced that they are hiding something. The question is what?"

"What are you going to do?" Vinny asks her before he takes a sip of his wine.

Daisy looks back at him. "I've only ever asked Jemma about the past," she tells him. "But, what about Frederick? Maybe I should just ask him. He might tell me the truth."

"How are you going to get Frederick to tell you the truth?" Vinny then asks her.

Daisy gets a sly grin on her face. "I'm just going to invite him over and ask him. I have nothing else to lose at his point, do I?"

Vinny shakes his head. "And a world of knowledge to be gained."

Scene Five - Robertson Enterprises

"I'm glad you're here," Tyler tells Dominick as he walks into his father's office and sees Dominick pouring himself a drink at the bar.

Dominick takes a sip of his brandy before he turns around to face Tyler. "I needed to come in to get some work done," Dominick replies to his son.

"I just thought that after everything that happened at your wedding, you'd stay away for a little bit longer," Tyler admits to him. "How is Mom doing, by the way?"

"I spoke to her this morning and she seemed to be in a fine mood," Dominick tells him. "I think the shock is wearing off but now we all know that we can't trust Frederick Richardson."

"Isn't that the truth," Tyler replies to him quickly. "That son of a bitch will never hurt Mom again. Not if I have anything to say about it."

"How are things around here?" Dominick asks him, before he takes another sip of his brandy. "How is the facial cream coming?"

Tyler grins as he recalls telling Kim that he was struggling to come up with the final ingredient to prevent wrinkles in the facial cream but then shortly after, she texted him a picture of the formula that Roboto is using in their facial cream.

"There's some news on that front," Tyler reveals to his father. "It seems that Roboto is also planning on releasing a facial cream. But, I got the formula. I know exactly how to make our facial cream now."

Dominick looks back at him. "Then, what are we waiting for?" Dominick asks him, knowing the need to beat Roboto to the shelves with the cream. "Why aren't we in production?"

"We are," Tyler grins back to him. "We will beat Roboto to the shelves, I'm sure of it."

Dominick smiles back at his son, feeling very proud in this moment. "This is cause for celebration!"

"Let's hold off until we know we are going to beat Roboto," Tyler tells him. "Then, we'll have the biggest celebration of all."

Scene Six - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"I'd like to move forward Kimberly," Bob tells her, as she comes up closer to his bed. "I think you messed up, but like I told you, I think we all have made mistakes. I think this car accident should be a reminder of how short life. We can't keep holding on to these secrets and lies."

"I couldn't agree more," Kim replies to him. "I love you Bob, and I want us to work out."

"I want that too," Bob admits to her as she comes up and he grabs her hand. "But if we are going to move forward, there can't be anymore secrets or lies. We have to go into this marriage without any blinders on."

Kim nods back to him as she gets more tears in her eyes. She hugs her husband. "No more secrets," she whispers into his ear. "I don't know what I've done to deserve this, but thank you."

They exit their embrace and he smiles back to her. "I don't know what I've done to deserve you or you sticking by me through all of this."

"I love you," she tells him, as suddenly she realizes that she gave Tyler the formula to finish the facial cream, meaning that Robertson Enterprises could release their facial cream before Roboto. She just told her husband that she wouldn't have any more secrets from him, but she knows that he can never know that she gave Tyler that formula.

"I love you too," Bob smiles back to his wife.


Robbie moves up to Victoria's hospital room and he peers inside. He can see her laying in her hospital bed, recovering from her surgery. He knows that the surgery wasn't very serious, but he still has made him realize what is important: being with her. For too long, he has been focused on revenge and he doesn't want to do that anymore. He wants to move forward; not that Bob and Kim have forgiven him, it's time to make things right with Victoria.

He opens the door and move inside the room, causing Victoria to open her eyes. "I didn't mean to wake you," he tells her.

"You didn't," she admits to him. "I wasn't sleeping, just resting."

"How is your knee?" he asks her as he comes up to her.

"Doctor said I'll make a full recovery," she replies to him.

"Thank goodness," he says as he sits on the edge of her bed. "I'm glad you're awake because I really need to talk to you."

"I'm not sure what else there is to say."

"How about I love you and I'm so sorry for everything that has happened," he tells her as she looks at him. "I just got back from telling my Dad and Kim how sorry I am. And, now I'm here to tell you the exact same thing."

"I'm sorry Robbie," she cuts him off. "But, I don't want to hear it. I can't listen to what you have to say."

Scene Seven - The Pampa Grill

"Are you sure he's going to show up?" Helen asks Adam as they sit at a table, waiting for Max to arrive. Adam asked his son to come to the restaurant in hopes of them reuniting as a family. Helen, of course, is still skeptical that Max is really Adam's son. After everything that Cassie put them through before, she has no idea if she can trust that this is real. She wouldn't put it past Cassie to be lying.

Adam nods back to her. "He said he would be here. I just want to try to get through to him. Make him realize that I didn't choose to not be in his life. Cassie did that when she left town."

"I know Adam," Helen replies to him. "I just hope that this isn't another trick of Cassie's."

"You think I'm lying about being Adam's son?" Max asks as he arrives at the table, having overheard their conversation. "You don't think it's true?"

"Max, I'm so glad you are here," Adam tells him as he stands up, ignoring what Max was asking.

"I thought I owed you that much," Max replies. "It still sucks that you didn't know who I was."

"It's because I never was able to see you," Adam tells him. "I had no idea whether Cassie gave birth to a boy or a girl."

"And you," Max says as he looks at Helen. "You think I'm lying?"

Helen gulps. "I…I don't know what to think."

"Well, I'm not lying about this," Max spits back to her. "Why would I? What would I have to gain by that?"

"He has a point," Adam says back to Helen. "I believe you, Max," Adam tells him. "I believe that you're my son."

"Wait, what?" a shocked Dawn asks as she comes up to the table, having arrived at the Pampa Grill and overheard the news. Only, it can't be right. How could one of her best friends be her brother? When did her Dad have another affair that produced a child? "Max is your son? That means, Max is my brother? I can't believe this! Who is the mother?"

"Dawn, I can explain," Adam says to his daughter.

"No," Dawn snaps at him as she starts to rush off. "I'm so fucking tired of all these lies!"

Max looks back at his friend, who rushes out of the restaurant. "I'll talk to her," he tells Adam. "I'll make her understand."

Scene Eight - Cassie's Office

"Well," Paige begins to say back to Cassie. "I learned my lesson from the trial. I know that Shane and I will never be together. Even if I do have some lingering feelings for him, I know that we will never be together. And, I've accepted that."

Cassie smiles and puts her note pad down. "I think this has been a really good start to therapy, don't you?"

Paige stands up and nods back to her, feeling more at ease then at the start of the session. "Yea, it wasn't that bad. You really made me feel at ease, Dr. Nova."

"Call me Cassie, please," Cassie replies to her. "If you need anything, day or night, call me, okay? Otherwise, I'll see you at your next scheduled appointment."

"Sounds good," Paige says back to her. "See you soon."

Paige leaves the office and Cassie stands up from her chair. She moves her note pad back to her desk and looks over the notes again from the session, already making plans about the next set of questions that she will ask Paige at their next session.

She hears her office door open. "Did you forget something Paige?" she asks out loud, not looking up from her note pad.

"It's not Paige," a voice calls out, causing Cassie to look up and see Natasha standing in her office. "Hello Cassie, it's been a long time."

Next on One Day at a Time
- Natasha has a warning for Cassie
