Previously on One Day at a Time
- The double wedding went off without a hitch as Jeff and Meggan, and
Vinny and Daisy got married
- Jemma fainted after the wedding ceremony and when she awoke she told
Frederick she couldn't lie anymore. She revealed that Frederick raped
her years ago and as a result, she ended up pregnant with Daisy and Danielle!
Jemma also stated that Frederick had been paying for her silence. Daisy
slapped Frederick and rushed off. Frederick, meanwhile, maintained that
he seduced Jemma
- Chris and Trenyce were reunited with Andrew, but he remained cold to
- Paige came face to face with the dark figure that was lurking around
the estate and Paige screamed. Later, Meggan saw the figure rush outside
into storm and she went after the figure. In the rain, lightning flashed
and Meggan saw the figure's face: the person looked like Leah!
Scene One - Riverbench Winery; The Richardson Estate
Lightning flashes across the black sky as the rain continues to beat down
furiously in Santa Barbara as Meggan stands in the garden in absolute
shock. She can't believe that this woman standing in front of her is Leah.
Since she got back to her family estate, she has been thinking she has
seen this figure, dressed in all black, first in the window of the west
wing turret then a few times in the mansion itself. Earlier, she saw the
figure rush out into the rain and when Meggan found her in the garden,
the lightning caused her to see the woman's face and it looks to be Jeff's
dead wife. She feels frozen in shock and awe by what has just happened.
"How is this possible?" Meggan asks loudly in the rain, as more
thunder booms. "How are you alive? You died in that explosion in
Lake Tahoe. This can't be happening. This isn't real!"
The woman turns around and tries to run away from Meggan, but Meggan grabs
her arm, preventing her from running away. "You're not going anywhere!"
Meggan yells at the woman, still in shock but determined to get some answers.
"Not until you tell me who you are! And why do you look like Leah?"
Inside the living room, Frederick puts a log on to the fire place to keep
some of the guests warm. He had left the other main living room because
he knew that everyone needed space from the shocking revelations that
Jemma made earlier in the evening that he raped her and she had given
birth to Daisy and Danielle as a result. Frederick hates that the truth
came out, and he hates even more that everyone know believes he is a rapist.
He maintains that he seduced Jemma all those years ago. He just needs
everyone to believe him but that seems unlikely.
"I hope the fire will keep everyone warm," he says as he moves
over to the bar and pours himself a brandy. "It's been a long, intense
"Well, and my wife is missing," Jeff tells Frederick, who arches
his eyebrow, as more thunder booms outside. "Meggan left our room
to grab more champagne and she hasn't been seen since. I don't know where
"It's a big house," Frederick replies to him, not showing any
concern for his daughter. "I'm sure she's around here somewhere.
After all, why would Meggan leave on her wedding night? She has wanted
to get married for so long, Jeff. You know that."
Jeff uneasily nods back to him. "I know," he admits to his new
found father in law. "It's just, the longer I go without hearing
from her, the more I think something very bad is happening."
"We can't think that way," Frederick responds to him before
taking a sip of his brandy. "She will turn up. I know my daughter,
she will be here. I suppose you could ask Brix if he has seen her around."
Before Jeff can reply, Robbie comes up to him with a look of concern on
his face, as lightning flashes across the sky. "Robbie, what is it?"
"Have you seen Paige?" Robbie asks him, as Jeff shakes his head
no. "I'm growing concerned about her. I haven't seen her since the
wedding ceremony and she's not in her room. I don't know where she is."
"Great," Jeff says back to him. "Now, the two most important
women in my life are missing. Where could they be Frederick?"
"I brought you a drink," Vinny tells Daisy as they sit on the
edge of their king size bed in their room. He passes her the whiskey and
she takes a big sip of it, needing to calm down after everything that
happened tonight. Not only did they get married, but Jemma finally revealed
her past to Frederick; it's nothing Daisy ever would have believed to
be true, but Frederick forced himself to have sex with Jemma that resulted
in her pregnancy with Daisy and Danielle. Then Jemma revealed, that Frederick
had been paying her into silence. All these years, Daisy has been lied
to about her family. She doesn't know how to handle the news.
"Thank you," she manages to say after she swallows the liquid
down, as thunder crackles outside. "I needed that."
"I can tell," he tells her, trying to be supportive. "If
there's anything I can do, anything at all, you know that I'm here for
She manages to smile back to him as she nods. "Make the last few
hours disappear," she replies to him. "I feel like my entire
world has been turned upside down."
"I can appreciate that," he says to her as he sits next to her.
"But, you're still the same woman. You're still the woman that I
just married. You have to believe that."
Daisy gets tears in her eyes as she looks at her husband. "I'm the
product of a rape," she whispers back to him as a tear falls down
her cheek, as lightning illuminates the windows. "I don't know
I feel very weird about that. I always believed that my parents wanted
me and Danielle and I were planned. This
this is all so much."
"Do you think you'll be able to forgive Jemma?" Vinny asks his
wife. "She kept this from you but I understand why she kept it from
you, you know? This is a very personal situation."
Daisy shrugs as she wipes her eyes. "I don't know," she admits
to him. "I don't know if I will be able for give my Aunt
my mother. God, even saying that sounds weird to me."
"Of course it does," he says to her, as more lightning flashes.
"This is all so fresh. You need time to adjust."
"I don't know if I will ever adjust to the fact that Frederick and
Jemma are my parents," she replies to him before she takes another
sip of her whiskey. "And, that's the truth."
Jemma moves over to the bar as another boom of thunder can be heard in
the storm. She pours herself a brandy and takes a quick drink of her,
trying to stop her hands from trembling. She can't believe that after
all these years she has finally told the truth about what happened that
night at the estate; she can't believe that Daisy knows that she is her
mother. She takes another drink before she shuts her eyes. For the first
time since she arrived, when her eyes are closed, she doesn't go back
to that dreadful night all those years ago. She realizes that telling
the truth has set her free, in a way.
"Jemma," Trenyce says as she comes up behind her Aunt. "Are
"I'll be just fine child," Jemma replies to her before she turns
around to face Trenyce. "I know my stories left all you up in arms,
but I had to tell the truth. I couldn' keep this lie anymore. Not being
back in this house, not with a storm goin' on the same way it did that
Trenyce nods back to her uneasily, as the storm creates another boom of
thunder. "I get it," she tells her. "I really do. I'm just
so sorry that you had to go through that. I wish you would have to come
to Daisy and I sooner with this truth."
"I couldn' do that," Jemma replies to her quickly. "This
wasn' somethin' I ever wanted anyone to know about. It's not somethin'
I'm proud of."
"You don't have to be ashamed, I hope you know that."
Jemma shakes her head before she takes another mouthful of brandy. "That's
neither here or now," Jemma tells her. "I just want to know
somethin', do you forgive me? Can you find it your heart to forgive me
for all this heartache?"
Trenyce pulls her into a hug and squeezes her tightly. "Of course
I can," she tells her as a tear falls down Jemma's cheek. "But
Daisy," Trenyce tells her. "She may need more time before she
Jemma nods as they exit their embrace. "I will do anything to make
her understand," she tells Trenyce. "I will do whatever she
needs me to do but I can't lose her, not now."
"Andrew," Chris calls out as he sees the young man about to
walk into the library. Chris hopes that he can make Andrew finally understand
what really happened between him and Savannah; the fact that Andrew blames
him and Trenyce for her death is absolutely insane, Chris thinks, but
he also knows that Frederick has probably been planting seeds of doubt
in Andrew's mind about what happened. "Do you have a moment to talk?"
he asks as lightning bolts through the rain clouds.
A loud crackle of thunder echoes throughout the house as Andrew stops
and rolls his eyes a little. He hates that both Chris and Trenyce are
continuing to bother him. He just wants them to leave him alone. "Just
a moment, what is it Mr. Michaels?"
"You can call me Chris," he tells the young man. "I was
hoping we could get caught up. You know, there was a time when I thought
you were my son. I still care very much about you and what happens to
"Do you?" Andrew asks him as lightning flashes again. "Because,
if you cared, I doubt you would have killed my mother."
"I didn't kill Savannah," Chris protests back to him. "That's
part of what I'd like to talk to you about. Let's sit down and I can tell
you what really happened. I think you may change your mind about things
after you hear what I have to say."
"I doubt that very much," Andrew snaps back at Chris. "I
don't think you or Trenyce care about what I'm saying, because if you
did, you'd leave me the hell alone. I have no desire to hear you out.
I know everything I need to know about what really happened that night."
"Andrew, please," Chris pleads with him. "Just hear me
"Nah, I'm good," Andrew replies as more thunder booms outside.
"See ya around."
"I have no idea where Paige could possibly be," Frederick replies
to Robbie and Jeff before he takes another swig of his brandy. "This
is a huge house, she could be anywhere."
"I hope she didn't go up to the west wing," Victoria tells the
men as she joins the conversation. "I know she was curious about
it but we all know there is a renovation up there."
"She better not have gone up there!" Frederick says in frustration,
knowing everything could be ruined if Paige actually went up to the west
wing. "That would be disastrous, especially now."
"Why would you say that?" Jeff asks him, just as Paige slowly
walks into the living room, looking pale.
"Paige!" Robbie rushes over to her and helps her take a seat,
as more thunder booms. "Where have you been? We have been so worried
"Victoria, can you come look at my daughter please?" Jeff asks
her, noticing that Paige is looking pale. "Are you okay Paige?"
Paige uneasily nods back to everyone as Victoria checks her heart rate.
I fainted," Paige admits to everyone as thunder booms
outside. "I had gone up to the west wing," she continues to
"You did what?" an enraged Frederick asks her. "I told
you to stay out of that part of the house!"
"How is she?" Robbie asks Victoria, who finishes her quick exam
of Paige, ignoring Frederick's comments.
"She looks to be fine," Victoria tells everyone before she passes
Paige a glass of water. "I think she should drink some water and
go to bed. She should feel better in the morning."
"No," Paige protests after she drinks some of her water, as
lightning flashes. "You don't understand."
"What is it Paige?" Jeff asks his daughter, concerned about
her. "Why are you so upset?"
"I don't think we should carry on," Frederick tells everyone,
growing agitated. "You heard Victoria, the girl needs her rest."
"I saw her," Paige ignores Frederick's words. "I saw her!"
"Who did you see?" Robbie asks her as they all stand in back
in confusion and lightning strikes across the sky again.
Paige looks at Robbie and then over at Jeff. "Mom," Paige says
as a tear falls down her cheek. "I saw Mom, she's here! She's upstairs!"
"I don't know what you are asking of me?" the woman yells back
to Meggan in the pouring rain.
"You can't be real!" Meggan shouts back to her. "You're
supposed to be dead! You're not supposed to be alive! You can't be real!"
The woman who looks like Leah looks back in confusion at Meggan. "I'm
not dead," she says back to Meggan. "I'm standing right in front
"You can't be Leah," Meggan continues to her. "But you
look just like her. How is this possible?"
Lightning flashes again as the woman looks back to Meggan in confusion.
She has no idea what Meggan is rambling on about. "That is my name,"
the woman tells Meggan. "That's what people call me."
"What people? And what do they call you?"
"Frederick," the woman tells Meggan, as more thunder booms in
the rain storm. "He calls me Leah."
