Episode Theme song: "Please Don't Leave Me" Pink
Previously on One Day
at a Time
- At Eva and Dominick's wedding reception, the truth about Frederick brainwashing
Felicia into believing she didn't love Dominick was revealed. Felicia
told Frederick she never wanted to see him again. Frederick tried to blackmail
Eva into helping him get Felicia back, but she refused. Dominick, meanwhile,
told Eva that he loves her and is glad they are married
- Frederick convinced Meggan, by offering his winery in Santa Barbara
as a wedding venue for her and Jeff, to send Chris and Trenyce on a wild
goose chase instead of actually finding their biological child
- Daisy asked Frederick about his past with Jemma. To cover, he suggested
that Daisy and Vinny use his winery in Santa Barbara as a venue for their
wedding as well. To his and Jemma's surprise, the couple accepted, after
Jemma told him it was a bad idea
Scene One - Tyler's Townhouse; Tyler & Felicia's Home
"Are you still feeling down?" Tyler asks his Mom as he sees
her looking out the window holding a cup of tea. He knows that she has
been upset since the truth has come out that Frederick was brainwashing
her into believing that she didn't love Dominick anymore. He can understand
why she feels down about this because she trusted Frederick, as both a
friend and a doctor, and they were growing closer. He's just grateful
that Trenyce was able to figure out the truth because now Frederick can't
hurt his mother anymore.
Felicia turns her head and looks back at her son and tries to put a smile
on her face. "I'm sorry if I am being a downer, dear."
"Never apologize Mom," Tyler replies to her as he moves closer
to her. "I'm just worried about you, that's all."
"That's very sweet of you," she says back to him as she stands
up from the window seat. "I'm still just trying to wrap my head around
everything that has happened, you know? I can't believe that Frederick,
my doctor, my friend, my confidant, was brainwashing me. And for what?
Because he claims to love me? It's the most insane thing I've ever heard
"I know," Tyler tells her. "I can't believe he would do
that to you either. But the truth is out now, we know the kind of man
Frederick really is. And, he will never hurt you again. I won't let him."
"Look at you," she smiles back to him. "My protector. You're
"I won't let anyone hurt this family," he informs her.
"Now you sound like your father," she smirks before she pauses
and takes a sip of her tea, as the wheels in her head start turning.
"Something is clearly on your mind," Tyler observes back to
her. "What are you thinking about?"
She sighs and looks back at him. "Honestly?" she asks him as
he nods. "I guess I'm just wondering how I actually feel about your
father. I mean, I loved him for years and then I told him I didn't love
him, but we know that it is because of Frederick. I guess I just wonder
how I actually feel for him."
"Do you think you still love him?" Tyler asks her.
"I don't know," she admits to him. "Every time I look in
my heart, I get conflicted because of the brainwashing. I just wish.."
"What do you wish, Mom?"
"That I could get back my feelings, my real feelings," she tells
him. "Before the brainwashing. I want to know how I feel about Dominick
Scene Two - Dominick's Townhouse; Dominick & Eva's Home
"We need to pick up some more of the dark roast coffee beans from
the Sugarbowl," Eva tells Dominick as she moves into the living room,
holding a glass of wine. "You know the ones I'm talking about?"
Dominick looks up from the papers that he has in his hands that is reviewing
for Robertson Enterprises and nods back to her. "I know exactly which
ones you mean," he replies to her quickly. "I can grab some,
if you'd like."
"Would you? That would be lovely, thank you," she tells him.
"What are you working on?"
"Ah, this, my beauty, is the next big thing that Robertson Enterprises
is going to be launching," he tells her with a sly grin on his face.
"And, the best part, is that we are going to beat Roboto at their
Eva shakes her head with a grin on her face. "I don't know what that
means, but as long as you're happy, that's all that matters to me."
She turns around and takes a deep breath, wondering how long this marital
bliss will last if Frederick follows through with his threats to tell
Dominick the truth about Eva knowing about the brainwashing of Felicia.
She knows that she kept it a secret because she wanted this: to be happily
married to Dominick; if the truth comes out, she has no doubt in her mind
that Dominick would be absolutely livid with her.
"Did you hear a word I just said?" Dominick asks his wife as
he stands up and moves up behind her, since he could tell that she was
"No, I'm sorry, I must have been lost in my thoughts," Eva replies
to him as she turns around to face him. "What were you saying?"
"What is it, Eva?" he asks her, seeing that she is upset about
something. "I can tell that something is bothering you."
Eva fakes a smile on her face. "Me? No, I'm fine, I'm just thinking
about Donovan and something he said to me the other day. It's nothing,
promise," she lies to him, knowing that she can't tell him the truth.
"Okay, only if you're sure," he says as he pulls her into a
"I'm sure," she replies to him as they exit their embrace. Suddenly,
she realizes that she should try to help Frederick with his plan to get
Felicia to forgive him. If she helps Frederick, he won't tell Dominick
the truth; she has to ensure her marriage stays intact. "Are you
going to the Sugarbowl?" she asks him as he nods. "Okay, I'll
meet you back here later, okay? I have something I have to do too."
Dominick arches his eyebrow as she puts her wine glass down and she grabs
her purse and heads for the door. "Okay," he says. "See
you later then."
Scene Three - MW Investigations
"I'm not sure I really understand," Trenyce admits to Meggan
as she and Chris sit in her office and Meggan just finished revealing
to them that the lead on their biological child in Boston fell through.
Trenyce didn't want to get her hopes up because she thought that it would
be a long shot but the fact that the lead has already fell through makes
her feel hopeless. "How did the lead in Boston fall out already?"
Meggan arches her eyebrow back to Trenyce, knowing very well that she
had to stop digging for Trenyce and Chris' child because she is helping
Frederick with his plan to get back at Chris and Trenyce for their plan
against Savannah Pherson a few years ago, and the fact that Chris is still
threatening Frederick. At first she didn't want to go along with the plan,
but after Frederick pressed her to help the family and offered their family
winery in Santa Barbara as a venue for her wedding to Jeff, she reconsidered.
Now, she just has to sell this change to Chris and Trenyce.
"Well," she begins to tell them. "Like I mentioned to you,
I had one of my associates go to Boston and do some more digging. The
child that was in question, was actually not purchased on the black market.
We have proof of that, so that couldn't have been your child."
Trenyce uneasily nods back to her before she looks over at Chris. "So,
where do we go from here?" he asks Meggan.
"I actually got another lead," Meggan reveals to them. "There
was a child that was, definitely, purchased on the black market around
the same time that Andrew was born. This could be your daughter, but we
have to proceed with caution. I don't want you to get your hopes again."
"Where is this child?" Trenyce asks her.
"She's in Houston," Meggan reveals to them. "She's living
with her parents and she seems to be living a pretty good life. Of course,
there's no guarantee that this is your child."
Trenyce looks back at Chris and can feel her heart flutter. Could this
be, finally, the time that they find their daughter. "I want to go
to Houston," Trenyce blurts out without really thinking about anything.
"I don't know if that's wise," Meggan quickly replies to her.
"It could be dangerous. If this is your child, you have to remember
that her parents got her illegally. It might get complicated."
"I don't care," Trenyce shakes her head. "I want to be
there. I want to see this girl, I will know my child if I just see her."
Chris looks back at her. "I'll go with you," he says, as Trenyce
looks into his eyes. "We can find her together."
Trenyce nods and smiles back to him. "Thank you," she says.
"Meggan, we'll keep you posted on what happens."
Meggan smiles to her and nods, knowing that it worked: the child in Houston
is not Trenyce and Chris' daughter, but they don't know that. In fact,
she can tell that they are hoping that it is their daughter.
"Yea, please do," she finally says back to them. "And,
I'll keep looking on my end."
Scene Four - The Sugarbowl
Frederick sits in the back booth with a coffee as he looks at his phone.
He's reading mindless news stories, but he really isn't paying attention
to what he is reading. He is desperate to think of a way to get Felicia
to forgive him for brainwashing her into believing she doesn't love Dominick.
He knows that he will do anything to get the woman that he loves back
into his good graces.
"I think I know what I'm going to do," he whispers to himself
as he starts to dial a number on his phone. He listens for the caller
to pick up. "It's me," he says in a hushed voice. "I know
it's been awhile, but how are things there?" he listens to the other
person finish speaking. "Well, that's some progress right? This just
has to work, Felicia will be so thrilled with this surprise," Frederick
continues to say. "This could be the thing that makes her forgive
me and come back to me. I'll be in touch, okay?"
He hangs up the phone and gets a weird grin on his on face. He hopes that
this surprise he is planning will actually work and will make Felicia
forgive him. He doesn't know what else he can do. He just wishes it would
happen sooner rather than later.
"I should go tell Felicia that I have a surprise for her," he
says to himself as he stands up, preparing to leave. He moves closer to
the front door when Dominick comes into the coffeehouse. Frederick rolls
his eyes, not wanting to Dominick because he knows that Dominick will
still not be pleased with everything that went down.
"I must say I'm a bit surprised," Dominick announces to Frederick,
unable to stay away from the doctor.
Frederick arches his eyebrow. "Are you going to finish your thought?
Why are you surprised?"
"I just figured that after everything was revealed you would have
left town," Dominick replies to him. "No one wants you here,
so what's keeping you here."
Frederick smirks back to him. "My practice is here," he tells
Dominick. "My daughter is here. My son will probably come back one
day. Like it or not, Dominick, but my life is in Twin Peaks."
"Your life, that's priceless," Dominick says back to him as
he glares at the doctor. "Because let me tell you something, you
won't have much of a life left if you ever hurt Felicia again. You stay
away from her, do you understand me?"
"Yea, yea, yea," Frederick replies to him sarcastically. "You
and everyone else keep threatening me. You can cut the macho act any time,
okay? Now if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man."
Dominick grits his teeth as he watches Frederick leave the coffeehouse.
He knows that he will do whatever it takes to ensure Frederick never hurts
Felicia, or any member of his family, ever again.
Scene Five - Tyler's Townhouse
"Eva, this is a surprise," Felicia says as she opens the door
and sees Dominick's wife standing there. "Please come in."
Eva uneasily smiles back to her and moves into the living room, hoping
that she can convince Felicia to find it in her heart to forgive Frederick.
"If you're looking for Tyler, I'm afraid you just missed him. He
went into Robertson Enterprises."
"No, I'm actually looking for you," Eva replies to her. "I
wanted to see how you're doing."
"That's sweet of you," Felicia says back to Eva. "I guess,
I'm the same as the last time we saw one another. Still in shock about
everything that happened and confused about the feelings I have; which
are real and which are a result of the brainwashing."
Eva shakes her head. "I still can't believe it myself," she
admits to Felicia.
"I know, I trusted Frederick. I can't believe he would do this to
"Well," Eva begins to reply to her. "For what it's worth,
I do think he meant no harm. I can tell by the way he looks at you that
he does have feelings for you."
"What are you trying to say?" Felicia asks in surprise.
"I'm just saying," Eva says trying to stay strong. She knows
that she has to tread this lightly because she can't make it seem like
she is on Frederick's side completely. "I think what he did, he did
out of some kind of goodness."
"I can't believe you're defending him!" Felicia snaps back at
her, shocked that Eva is suggesting that Frederick was somehow justified
in brainwashing her.
"No, I'm not defending him," Eva quickly replies to her. "I'm
just saying that maybe one day, there can be forgiveness in all of this."
"Never," Felicia immediately says back to her. "I will
never forgive Frederick. He crossed the line and we can never go back
Scene Six - The Victors Mansion; Vinny, Daisy & Jemma's Home
"I'm glad that we could all get together to plan this double wedding,"
Daisy says to Jeff and Meggan as they sit in the living room of the mansion.
Vinny comes in with some wine glasses and some sparkling water for Meggan.
"I must admit it," Meggan begins to tell everyone. "I was
rather surprised when my father told me that you guys agreed to use the
winery as a venue. I mean, I think it's great, but after everything that
I did when I first came back to town, I didn't think you guys would want
to get married with us, yet alone a double wedding."
Vinny chuckles as he passes out some beverages to everyone. "That's
water under the bridge," he tells her. "The fact is, Daisy and
I have been planning a wedding for so long, it was a welcomed offer to
have the venue somewhere as beautiful as Santa Barbara."
"And," Daisy continues. "We thought this would be a really
good way to make a peace offering between our two families. You know,
weddings have a way of bringing everyone together."
"That they do," Jeff agrees with her. "Anyways, I think
it's a great idea and I think we should have a toast."
"To two amazing weddings for two amazing couples," Vinny says
to everyone as they cheers each other. "Now, let's get down to some
Upstairs, Jemma paces in her bedroom as she tries to keep her heart rate
down. She knows what is happening downstairs right now; Vinny and Daisy
are planning their double wedding at the winery in Santa Barbara. She
told Frederick that offering his estate as a venue would be a bad idea,
but he didn't listen to her. He thought that it would be a good idea to
make it seem like they don't have a past together.
"Only now," she whispers to herself. "I have to go back
to that damn place. I don' know how I'm goin' to do this."
She thinks about the last time she was at the winery; she shuts her eyes
and quickly opens them, feeling some beads of sweat form on her forehead.
"How the hell am I goin' to stay calm and cool? There's no way I
can do this on my own!"
Downstairs, the wedding planning is in full swing, when the front door
bell rings. Daisy stands up and moves to the door. "Paige, what a
surprise," she says seeing the young girl on the other side of the
door. "Please come in. Your Dad is just in the other room. We are
planning our double wedding, that sounds exciting, doesn't it?"
"Yea, thrilling," Paige practically rolls her eyes back at Daisy.
"I'm sorry to interrupt, but I had to come and see my Dad."
"Paige, is everything okay?" Jeff asks his daughter as he comes
into the foyer, with Meggan closely following him behind.
"No, it's not okay," Paige reveals to Jeff. "You're marrying
this woman! And, I hate it! I absolutely hate it!"
Scene Seven - Tyler's Townhouse; Tyler & Felicia's Home
"Felicia, are you in there?" Frederick yells as he knocks on
the front door, hoping that Felicia will finally hear him out.
Felicia moves up to the door and covers her mouth, upset that Frederick
is once again not listening to her and showing up at her house. She has
told him, numerous times now, that she doesn't want to see him again;
not after everything that he has put her through.
She opens the door a little and looks out at her former doctor. "I
told you not to come back here," she says to him, still with the
door mostly closed.
"I know," Frederick replies, relieved that the she opened the
door. "I just had to see you. I've been working on this surprise
for you, I'm hoping that it will make you forgive me for what I've done.
I know I can't go back and change things, but I can make the future better,
"I don't want any surprise you may have for me," Felicia sternly
replies to him. "All I want is for you to leave me alone. Now go!"
she says to him before she closes the door and locks it again.
Outside the door, Frederick runs his hands through his hair. "When
you see my surprise, Felicia," he yells through the door. "You'll
be thanking me. You'll see!"
