Scene One - Cassie's Office
"I have to admit something to you," Shane tells Cassie as he
sits on the sofa in her office holding a bottle of water. He is at the
first therapy session that the court is making him attend after his trial
for statutory rape of Paige, even though she admitted that they never
slept together the night at the Calimo cabin. He isn't sure how this will
go over considering his torrid history with his new therapist. All the
memoires of what happened have slowly been coming back to him and it's
like he is reliving the nightmare all over again. "I'm not sure how
comfortable I'm going to be opening up to you. After everything that happened
between us, this isn't exactly the best arrangement."
Cassie purses her lips together as she puts her pen down on her note pad.
"Natasha visited me earlier," she reveals to Shane. "She
basically warned me about ruining your lives again. I understand the reasons
that you are all worried and scared, believe me I do," she continues
to tell him. "But I'll tell you, what I told her; I'm a changed woman.
The birth of my son really did that for me. I had surgery to look like
myself again, I've made a career for myself. I'm not some love struck
girl anymore. I'm a woman, and I'm in charge of my life. You have nothing
to worry about."
Shane gulps and looks back at her, wondering if he can trust anything
she is saying. "And, before you say anything else," she continues
to tell him. "Natasha spoke to Judge Ross about having me removed
as your therapist and he refused. So, you're stuck with me. I want this
to work as much as you do."
Shane nods back to her. "She told me she was going to try that,"
he admits to her. "I'm sorry if that was uncomfortable for you."
"It was fine," Cassie replies to him. "Now, the sooner
we start making progress, the sooner these sessions can end and we can
go on with our lives."
Shane, surprisingly, finds himself in agreement with her. "Okay,
let's begin. What should I talk about?"
"Well, I read the notes from the trial and it seems like you and
Natasha aren't exactly in a good place right now," she tells him,
secretly thrilled that Natasha screwed up her marriage to Shane all on
her own. "Do you want to talk about that?"
"She had an affair," he reveals to Cassie, as he thinks about
Natasha sleeping with Adam a few years ago, knowing that the information
is public knowledge. "She slept with Adam Black. Dawn, Adam's daughter,
found out and lashed out at Natasha."
"What did Dawn do, exactly?"
"She pushed Natasha down a flight of stairs," Shane continues
to reveal to her, reliving the horrible time in his life. "And, she
miscarried. She was pregnant with Adam's baby."
"How did all of this make you feel?"
Shane shakes his head, still upset at the thoughts of Natasha and Adam
being together. "That's the problem, she lied to me. She kept all
of this from me, which means I can't really trust her."
"The trial transcripts that I read," Cassie tells him. "She
testified that she thought you did sleep with Paige. That couldn't have
been easy on you either?"
"It's another reason why I don't know if I can save my family,"
he admits to her. "I've filed for divorce. I don't think I can save
my marriage and that makes me sad because of my son."
"You and Natasha have a baby?" Cassie asks him in surprise.
"Yea, Jacob," Shane replies to her. "He's the light of
my life. My everything; I wanted to make things work for his sake
but I just don't know how."
Cassie doesn't respond, she just writes down some notes before looking
up at him. "See, you just told me a lot. It's not that hard, is it?"
"I guess not, no," he admits to her. "It did just seem
to come out of me once I started speaking about it."
"Good, and as time goes on, this will get easier and easier. I think
we got a lot out today," Cassie tells him. "I'll see you at
the next session, if not sooner."
Shane arches his eyebrow. "I just mean," she quickly tells him.
"That this is a small town, we may run into each other."
"Right," Shane nods back to her, knowing very well that he will
be avoiding Cassie like the plague outside of therapy. "Well, I'll
see you at the next session."
Scene Two - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"I can't believe that they are making me do this," Max tells
Dawn as they sit in the waiting room of the hospital, after she convinced
him to come to the hospital to do a DNA test to prove that he is actually
Adam's son. She knows that Max isn't thrilled by this idea but she also
realizes that Adam and Helen are both skeptical of Cassie because of their
history with her. Dawn had told her new found brother that by doing this,
everyone's mind's would be put to ease.
"I know, but I think you're doing the right thing," Dawn replies
to him, having come around to having one of her best friends as her sibling.
"It will put Dad's mind at ease, and that's what it's important right
"I guess you're right," Max says back to her. "It still
feels like some kind of violation. Like, why can't he just believe me?"
"It's not about believing in you," Adam announces to Max as
he comes into the waiting room with Helen net to him. "It's about
finding out the truth. Your Mom, she's done a lot of bad things in the
past. I just want to make sure that this is real."
"Yea, whatever that means," Max replies to him quickly.
"It means that we can try to be a family after this, isn't that what
you want?" Adam asks him, wanting to get to know his son, once the
results come back.
All eyes move to Max, who is about to respond when Natasha walks into
the waiting room, looking at Adam. "I'm glad I found you all here,"
Natasha tells everyone. "I have some news and you should all hear
Scene Three - The Victors Mansion; Vinny, Daisy & Jemma's Home
"Thank you for coming today," Daisy tells Frederick as he moves
into the house after receiving an invitation from Daisy to come over.
Daisy knows that she has to get to the bottom of Jemma's past with Frederick.
She hates that her Aunt is having nightmares about Frederick and she is
determined to get to the bottom of it, because it has been going on far
"Your invitation made it seem like I had to be here," Frederick
admits to her as he moves into the living room and sees Vinny standing
there. "Vinny, I didn't realize you'd be here as well."
"I am, can I offer you a drink of some kind?" Vinny asks him.
"No, thank you, I'm good," Frederick replies to him. "I'm
curious to know what this is about."
"Well," Daisy says to him. "It's about Jemma. I'd like
to know what exactly happened in the past between you two, and before
you say nothing happened, please know that she's been having nightmares
in which she calls out your name to stop, so I know that something must
be troubling her about you."
Frederick gulps as he wonders how he can get out of this; he knows that
Jemma would be furious if she knew what Daisy and Vinny were up to right
now. And, he knows that no one can ever know the truth about his past
with Jemma. And, he knows, that some things are better left in the past.
"I promise you," he starts to tell them. "That, the first
time I met Jemma was here in Twin Peaks. There is no past with us. I'm
not sure why she would be dreaming of me, but the subconscious is a mysterious
"I'm not sure that I can believe that," Daisy replies to him,
sure that something happened between them. "I need to know and I
won't rest until I find out the truth."
Frederick smiles as he crosses his arms. "Let me make you an offer,"
he starts to tell her. "My family has a winery in Santa Barbara,
you two have been engaged for a while; what if I offer you the estate
as a venue to be married at? By inviting you, and your family into my
home, I can ensure you that there is nothing going on between Jemma and
I. Think about it, okay? I don't know what else I can do to show that
I'm not hiding anything. Call it a peace offering."
"What is going on in here?" Jemma asks as she comes into the
living room, surprised to see Frederick engaging with Daisy and Vinny.
The last thing in the world she wanted or expected to see was the doctor
speaking to her niece and her fiancé.
Scene Four - The Sugarbowl
"Something has put you in a good mood," Andy observes Donovan
as he sits across from him at the coffeehouse. The two are catching up
over a cup of java, and Andy can see Donovan's good mood written all over
Donovan takes a sip of his coffee before he nods back to him, as he thinks
about his recent date with Craig. At first, he couldn't stop thinking
about Lukas, but because Lukas has left town he told himself that he had
to move on with his life. He, to his surprise, enjoyed his time with Craig
and they've shared a few kisses. "Yea, I am in a good place right
"Does this have anything to do with Craig Benton?" Andy asks
him with a sly grin on his face, knowing that Craig told him that he was
going to ask Donovan out.
"How'd you guess?" Donovan chuckles back to him.
"He told me that he was going to ask you out on a date," Andy
reveals to him. "He really seems to be interested in you."
"I get that feeling as well," Donovan replies to him. "I
can say that I'm happy to be moving on. After everything that happened
with Lukas, it's nice to be with someone who knows what he wants."
"I couldn't be happier for you," Andy smiles back to him.
"Thanks Andy," Donovan says back to him. "I'm happy to
be moving forward but I'm still going at a pace that I'm comfortable with."
"That's all people can ask of you."
Donovan smiles back to him before he takes another sip of his coffee.
"I haven't seen much of my husband since our wedding day," Eva
purses her lips to Dominick as they sit across from each other in the
back booth of the coffeehouse. She recalls how at the wedding reception,
the truth about Frederick brainwashing Felicia into believing that she
doesn't love Dominick was exposed. The first night, Felicia stayed with
them but she has since returned home; Eva is worried that Frederick will
still expose the fact that Eva knew about the brainwashing but didn't
say anything. He did try to blackmail her but she called Frederick's bluff.
She can't help but wonders if that was a mistake.
"I know, I'm sorry about that," he replies to her, thinking
about Robertson Enterprise's and the facial cream that they are about
to launch. "Work has been rather busy."
"Has it?" she asks him before she takes a sip of her coffee.
"Because, I was worried that you were having second thoughts."
"Second thoughts?" he asks her quickly. "About what, exactly?"
"Marrying me," she admits to him as she puts her head down.
"Now that you know that Felicia probably still has feelings for you,
I was thinking that maybe you wouldn't want to be married to me anymore."
Dominick reaches over and grabs her hand. "That's nonsense,"
he tells her. "I love you, Eva," he continues. "I am so
glad that I married you. I wasted way too much time filing for divorce
from Felicia, we haven't been married in a very long time, in the traditional
sense. I want to be married to you."
Eva feels her cheeks blush as she puts her head down to fight some tears
in her eyes. "I'm so glad to hear you say that," she replies
to him. "I was worried our marriage would be over before it began."
"That would be foolish on my part," he tells her. "I love
you and I'm not going anywhere."
Scene Five - The Calimo Mansion
"I'm so glad that you're home Grandpa," Paige tells Bob as she
sits next to him on the sofa. She hasn't seen Bob since before he went
away to rehab, which means this is the first time that he will be seeing
her since the trial and the truth came out about Paige and Shane's night
"It's good to be home," he replies to her before he takes a
sip of his tea. "I've heard you had a lot of excitement while I was
Paige sighs and moves a piece of her hair behind her ear. "So, you
heard about what happened at the trial, then?" she asks him as he
nods back to her. "I don't want a lecture, please," she continues.
"I've learned my lesson. I hope you believe that."
"It is your parents job to have those discussions with you,"
Bob informs her. "I'm trusting that Jeff and Robbie have spoken to
you about what happened. I'm your Grandfather, I'm here to love and support
you, no matter what."
"Thank you," she smiles back to him before she hugs him. "Like
I said, I know it was a mistake and I'm attending therapy now, so I'm
still learning about myself."
"And, what is it that you've learned so far about yourself?"
Paige sighs and becomes a little quiet. He can tell that she is thinking
about something and it seems pretty serious. She finally looks back at
him. "I do wish that my Dad's would find women who deserve them."
"Ah," Bob says back to her. "You don't think Meggan or
Victoria are worthy of them?"
She quickly shakes her head. "No, not at all and I don't know how
to make them realize that."
Scene Six - The Tower's; Floor 8; Victoria's Condo
"You didn't have to take the day off work to see me home," a
newly discharged Victoria announces to Robbie as he walks up to her condo
door and unlocks it for her. He knew that he had to bring her home to
ensure that she is comfortable. While her surgery was minor, he wanted
to ensure that she was okay.
"It was nothing," he says as he helps her into the condo. "Go
have a seat, I'll get the door."
Victoria moves over to the sofa and slowly sits down. She's feeling okay,
other than her knee being a little sore. The good news is that she should
only need the crutches for a week or two. "Now," he says coming
into the living room. "Can I get you anything? Water, juice, tea
She chuckles back to him. "No, I think I'm okay right now. Honestly,
you don't have to wait on me hand and foot. I just had minor knee surgery,
I'll be fine."
"I want to ensure that you're more than fine," he tells her.
"I don't want to take any chances. I could have lost you, Victoria.
I don't want to risk that again."
"You won't lose me," she says as she puts her hand on his face.
"I'm not going anywhere."
He leans in and kisses her quickly. "I want to make sure of that."
"And, how do you propose you're going to do that?"
"Marry me?" he asks her as he pulls out a black box from his
pants. When he opens it, there's a large pink Rockwell diamond ring inside
causing Victoria to gasp at the sight of it.
"Robbie," she says in shock. "It's beautiful. You didn't
have to get me a new ring."
"Yes, I did," he tells her. "The old ring was a symbol
of us in the past. This is about who we are now and where I want us to
go. So, what do you say? Will you be my wife?"
"I'd love nothing more," she beams back to him, as he slides
the ring on her finger and then leans in to kiss her passionately.
Scene Seven - The Pampa Grill
Cory moves into the restaurant looking to find a table so he can have
a drink while he waits for Rebecca's appointment to be over. He recalls
how she invited Melissa to the doctor's office and allowed her to go into
the exam with Rebecca. When Cory questioned her about this, Rebecca claimed
that it was because Melissa was excited at the idea of being a first time
Grandparent. He can understand that on some level, but he still doesn't
quite understand how Rebecca would feel like she could invite her mother
into an exam when Cory still hasn't gone in with her. He hates that she
is shutting him out of the pregnancy.
He starts moving towards an empty table when he spots Robin sitting further
back alone. He finds himself moving towards her, even though the last
time they saw one another, she made it clear that she didn't want to see
"I know that you don't want to talk to me," he announces as
he arrives at her table and she looks up at him. "But this is important.
I need your input on something."
He sits down across from her and she just looks at him. She doesn't know
what to say to him anymore, not after everything that has happened. "Well,"
she finally says to him. "What is it?"
"Rebecca asked your Mom into her doctor's appointment today,"
he reveals to her. "I haven't even gone into an appointment yet.
Don't you think that's odd?"
"I don't know," Robin snaps back at him, annoyed by his questions.
"I've stopped wondering what is normal anymore. It happened right
around the time I found out my husband slept with my sister."
"Robin, I know that I hurt you, but this serious," he replies
to her. "I think something is going on. It just doesn't seem right."
Robin looks back at him. "Then you're going to have to find out what
is going on," she tells him. "But you're going to have to do
that alone. I can't help you because I don't care."
Before he can say anything else to her, Robin stands up from her chair
and walks away. Cory turns around and watches her go and realizes she's
right; he may have to get to the bottom of whatever is going on with Rebecca
Scene Eight - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"So, Cory just left in a huff," Rebecca tells Melissa and Caroline
as Caroline starts to get dressed as the appointment is over. The doctor
had informed them that Caroline's cramping is usual at this stage of the
pregnancy but if it continues, there could be cause for concern; now,
Rebecca is telling Caroline how Cory left the hospital upset because Melissa
came to the appointment and not him. "I'm not sure if he will even
want to speak to me later."
"Don't be so dramatic," Melissa replies to her. "Cory will
come around. He's the father of your baby, he has to."
"I don't know," Rebecca says. "He was pretty upset that
you were coming and not him. He wants to be involved, and I can't blame
him! He hates you, Mom, for everything you've done to him."
Melissa's demeanor changes and she glares at her daughter. "After
everything I've done to him? That man has put this family through hell
and back. You have a lot of nerve even saying that to me."
"I'm sorry, I don't want to fight," Rebecca replies. "Caroline,
what do you think?"
"I think we need to focus on this baby or this plan won't work,"
she tells them. "Cory will come around, give him some time. Now,
who wants to drive me home?"
Scene Nine - The Victors Mansion; Vinny, Daisy & Jemma's Home
Jemma looks over at Daisy and Vinny as they discuss Frederick's offer
in the corner of the living room, before she looks back at Frederick.
"How dare you come into my home and offer the winery in Santa Barbara
as a venue for Miss Daisy's weddin'. You know that this is a terrible
mistake, don' you? You gotta remember what happened there!"
Frederick looks back at her with intent. "I didn't know what else
to do. She was grilling me about you and our past because you've been
having these nightmares. Maybe you could recognize that by me offering
the winery as a venue, I could have saved our asses. She won't know a
"And, what if they accept? Then what? It's a terrible idea!"
Jemma tries not to shout. "I can't go back there, Frederick. I just
"They won't accept," he replies to her. "Why would they
want to get married at my family's estate? They don't like me very much,
and they would have to get married at the same time as Meggan and Jeff
since they are using it as a venue."
Before Jemma can reply, Daisy and Vinny walk over to them, interrupting
their conversation. "Everything okay over here?" Daisy asks
him as Jemma nods, noticing their seemingly intense conversation.
"Of course," she smiles to Daisy. "I was just thankin'
the doctor for offerin' you the winery. I know you won't be goin' though."
"Actually," Vinny interjects. "We would love to get married
at your estate, Frederick. Thanks so much for the suggestion."
"Yea," Daisy smiles. "We would love to use this opportunity
to bury the hatchet between our families and prove that there is nothing
going on between you two."
Jemma fakes a smile on her face as she looks over at Vinny and Daisy before
she uneasily looks at Frederick, who also forces a smile on his face.
She can't believe this is happening; it's like her worst fears are coming
"Excellent," he manages to say to everyone, trying to hide his
worry of what he has just done. "I'll let the staff know."
Scene Ten - Cassie's Office
Cassie sits at her desk, looking at her notes that she just took with
her session with Shane. She keeps reading how Natasha had an affair with
Adam Black and that started the problems with her marriage to Shane. She
puts her glasses down on the desk and get a grin on her face. She stands
up and moves over to the wet bar in her office and pours herself a glass
of wine. She takes a sip and moves over to the window.
"So," she whispers to herself. "I'm not even in the picture
and you manage to ruin your relationship with Shane," she smiles
to herself, thinking that Natasha is the reason she and Shane are divorcing.
"See, you stupid little woman, I'm not the problem after all. You
are," she continues to tell herself. "It's all you."
Scene Eleven - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"Why are you even here?" Dawn stands up and asks Natasha, upset
that she is interrupting a family moment. "Can't you see that we
are involved in a family matter right now? Have you no decency for privacy?"
Natasha rolls her eyes and looks at Dawn. "You know what, little
girl, I'm tired of taking your verbal abuse. Sit down or I'm going to
come over there."
"I beg your pardon," Helen snaps at Natasha. "How dare
you speak to my daughter that way."
"Don't worry Mom, I can handle her," Dawn looks back at Natasha.
"She's nothing but a whore anyways."
"How dare you!" Natasha yells at her.
Craig suddenly comes into the waiting room. "What the hell is going
on in here?" he shouts, causing the fighting to stop. "This
is a hospital, not a place to fight with each other."
"I'm sorry, I don't know what's come over me," Natasha replies
as she fixes her skirt.
"Do you have the results, doctor?" Adam asks him, knowing that
Craig was the doctor who did the DNA test.
Craig nods back to him. "The results confirm that Max is your son
Adam," he informs everyone. "Congratulations."
"Congratulations?" Max laughs. "Yea, I guess. I guess I'm
not a liar after all, hey Dad?"
Before Adam can reply, Max quickly leaves the waiting room area. Adam
looks over at Helen and Natasha and sighs heavily, wondering if he will
ever get through to Max.
