Scene One - The Park
A light snow fall begins to lightly fall from the grey sky on the chilling
day. The park is remarkably quiet for the day, which means Natasha is
still laying on the pathway unconscious. Natasha had been confronting
Cassie over her relationship with Shane, when she fell on the ice. Cassie,
at the time, was walking away from Natasha and didn't even see the fall.
The light snow starts to cover Natasha, as she lays on the ground.
Adam takes a deep breath as he runs through the park. He has the morning
off, so he decided to go for a job. The crisp air in his lungs feels good
as he runs down the pathway. He can't help but notice that there aren't
many people in the park; it must be the snow, he realizes.
He stops for a moment to get his heart rate back to normal when he sees
the figure laying on the path. He does a double take and then realizes
that it is a person. "Hey," he calls out as he rushes up to
Natasha. "Are you okay? Hey, can you hear me?"
He arrives at the body and realizes who it is. "Natasha?" he
asks as panic starts to set in. "Nat? Can you hear me? Nat?"
he keeps calling out, but she doesn't respond.
"My God," he whispers to himself. "She must have fell on
the ice," he continues to tell himself as he pulls out his cellphone
and he dials 9-1-1. "Yes, I need an ambulance to the park. A woman
fell on the ice and is unconscious!"
Scene Two - The Pampa Grill
The soft jazz music plays in the background of the restaurant as Robbie
orders a bottle of wine for himself and Victoria to share as they sit
across from one another. The waiter pours some wine into both glasses
and then leaves the couple alone.
"I would say we could toast, but I'm not sure there is anything to
toast," Victoria tells him as she picks up her glass and takes a
sip of the wine.
"That seems harsh," Robbie replies to her quickly. "I mean,
we are together today, aren't we? That's something."
Victoria tries not to roll her eyes back to him. "I guess it is,"
she tells him. "I'm sorry if I'm not in the best mood, this entire
situation is just driving me crazy."
"I know it is," Robbie admits to her. "It's not easy for
anyone, you know. Do you think it's easy for me, having to pretend to
me Leah's husband when we all know that Jeff is? Do you think it's easy
for Meggan to see Leah come back when she thought her and Jeff were going
to be together? Do you think it's easy for Paige to have a mother who
doesn't even remember her?"
"Okay, okay," Victoria waves her hands in the air. "You've
made your point. I'm just losing my patience. What will happen if Leah
Robbie takes a sip of his wine before he looks back to Victoria. "I
don't have all the answers," he admits to her. "I mean, I wish
I could tell you exactly what you want to hear, but I don't know. I mean,
I know that I love you, and I want to be with you. Does that matter to
you at all anymore?"
"Of course it matters," Victoria sighs back to him. "You
know that I love you too. I'm sorry, I'm just frustrated by all of this."
"I know you are," Robbie replies to her as he reaches over and
grabs her hand. "I'm frustrated too. I'm just not sure what we can
do to speed up this process other than me spending more time with Leah
and Paige in hopes of her memory coming back."
Victoria uneasily nods back to him. "Yea, but that means spending
less time with me. I guess there are no winners in this situation."
"There aren't," he tells her. "All we can do is try to
get Leah to remember again. I do think that Leah spending time with Paige
"It's also the anniversary of Noah's death coming up," Victoria
reminds him. "Maybe that will trigger something with Leah?"
"I am dreading that," Robbie admits to her. "If you think
about how devastated Leah was when he died, she'll have to go through
that grief all over again."
"Yea, I hadn't thought of that before," Victoria replies to
him. "I guess it's good to know where you stand with us though. We
just have to be patient and wait for Leah to regain her memory."
Before Robbie can say anything, Paige appears at their table. "What
are you guys doing here? I thought we were spending time with Mom today?"
she asks Robbie, thinking about their time planned with Leah. She was
just about to head over to the house when she saw Robbie and Victoria
together, which is the last thing she expected to see.
"Nah, your Mom said she had something else to do," Robbie replies
to her. "Do you want to sit with us?"
Paige shakes her head. "I don't think you should be with Victoria
in public. What if Mom came here and saw this. You don't think that she
would ask questions?"
Victoria uneasily looks at Robbie before she looks at Paige. "We
can't stop living our life," Victoria tries to tell her as Paige
shakes her head.
"My Mom's memory coming back has to be the most important thing!"
Paige tells her. "I don't care how you feel about my Dad, Victoria.
It's not as important as my Mom!"
"Paige, come on," Robbie interjects, not happy with how she
is speaking to Victoria. "You're not being fair to Victoria."
Paige shakes her head. "I don't care, Dad. Mom's memory coming back
has to be the most important thing. It just has to! This, sharing wine
together, it has to stop and it has to stop now."
Scene Three - The Calimo House; Robbie, Leah & Paige's Home
"Thanks for coming by today," Leah tells Jeff as she lets him
into the living room of the house. Jeff looks around and can't believe
that he has had to remove himself from his house again. Everything is
so familiar to him, except the fact that he isn't living there anymore.
He hates that he has had to be pushed to the sideline while Leah tries
to regain her memory.
"Yea, I was a little surprised to have got the call, if I am honest,"
Jeff tells her as he walks up to the fireplace mantel and he looks at
the newest family picture of Leah, Robbie and Paige. He feels his heartbreak
inside his chest looking at the picture. "Nice picture."
"Thanks," she smiles, oblivious to his pain. "We thought
it was time to update everything since I was away for so long."
"Makes sense," Jeff puts the frame down on the mantel. "Have
you had any luck with having any memories?"
Leah shakes her head no. "I wish I could say yes," she tells
him. "But I haven't had any memories. I'm beginning to think that
maybe I won't ever remember."
"Don't think that way," Jeff replies to her as he turns and
looks at her. "You have to stay positive. You have to believe that
it will all come back to you."
Leah nods back to him. "I'm trying," she purses her lips together.
"I did call you over here for a reason today; I've been thinking
Jeff arches his eyebrow. "Noah? Why would you be thinking about him?"
Jeff asks, as he quickly recalls how he told her that he was dead, which
might not have been the best thing to do.
"I don't know, it's
been difficult to grasp that he's gone," Leah admits to him. "I
don't feel like I can really talk to Robbie about this. He was our son."
"This might be a good
thing," Jeff looks back at her. "It's almost the anniversary
of when he was taken from him. Maybe you're starting to remember?"
Leah looks back at him with
a blank expression. "But I'm not? I don't know. I'm sorry I brought
"Hey, don't do that.
You can tell me anything, anytime," Jeff replies to her. "But,
I should get going to the office. I have work to do today. Let's get together
again if you want to talk more about Noah, okay?"
Jeff starts to move back to the front door, but Leah calls him out. "I
wanted to ask you something else," she says, causing him to stop
walking. "I was at Frederick's memorial service and I saw you there.
You were with Meggan."
Jeff turns around to her. "Yea, she lost her father. I wanted to
extend my support to her."
"Yea, I was only there because my Mom was close to Frederick,"
she explains her presence to him.
"What is that you wanted to ask me?"
Leah shrugs a little. "I don't know if it was a question or not,"
Leah admits to him. "It's hard to explain."
"I don't know how to describe it," she continues to tell him.
"But, I just got this uneasy feeling in the pit of my stomach when
I saw you and Meggan hugging."
Jeff can't help but have hope that this means that Leah will get her memory
back, because right before she lost her memory, they were married in Lake
Tahoe. Her feeling, on some level, could be jealousy, he realizes. "I
wish I could explain," he tells her. "Just go with the feelings
you have. They may tell you more things."
Leah arches her eyebrow. "That sounded cryptic."
Jeff chuckles. "I'm just saying, these feelings might turn into memories
"I hope you're right," she tells him as she grabs his hand.
"And Jeff, thank you for reaching out to Noah for me."
Scene Four - Robertson Enterprises; The Studio
"Max, are you here?" Robin calls out as she walks into the studio,
holding her briefcase in one hand and a couple of coffee's in a holder
from the Sugarbowl in her other hand. "I brought us reinforcements."
Max peaks his out from the dark room and smiles at her. He can't help
but notice how beautiful she looks today. He licks his lips a little.
"I was just about to develop these pictures from our last photoshoot,"
he tells her. "You wanna come in and join me?"
"Am I allowed?" she asks him. "I don't want to disturb
"Nah, you'll be fine," he tells her. "Plus, you'll get
the first look at the pictures."
"Okay," she smiles back to him. "I'm in."
"Wait," he stops her. "You can bring the coffees, we might
Robin grabs the two coffees and moves to the dark room where Max lets
her in. Max purposely locks the door from the outside before he lets the
door close behind them. In his mind, some alone time with Robin, without
any interruptions, is exactly what they need to grow closer. He's tired
of having moments with Robin when someone else from Robertson or Adam
interrupts. No, he tells himself, it's time he have her all to himself.
"Thanks for the coffee," he smiles as he comes up to her, as
the red light in the room is the only light on.
"Yea," she tells him. "I'm really excited to see the pictures.
If they were anything like the proofs, they will be amazing."
"I hope so," he smiles back to her. "Can you pass me that
She reaches over and grabs the camera that is sitting on the shelf. She
passes it to him, and their hands briefly touch. He smiles back to her.
"All this coffee," she replies to him. "I have to use the
restroom. I'll be right back."
"Yea, sure," Max says back to her as he gets a wicked grin on
his face. "You know where to find me."
Robin scurries over to the door and tries to open it, but it won't open.
She tries again, only using more force this time. "What the hell?"
she asks, as he looks over to her. "The door, it's locked or jammed
"What?" Max acts surprised as he comes over and tries the door
himself. The door, obviously, doesn't open for him either. "Looks
like we are shut in here until someone comes into the studio."
Robin sighs heavily and looks back to him. "Yea, I guess so."
Scene Five - The Sugarbowl
Trenyce opens the door to the coffeehouse and she quickly moves inside,
desperate to get out of the chilly air. She can't believe everything that
is going on with Chris; she had received a phone call from him with Chris
telling her about Simona Lopez finding his gun and taking it out of his
house. Trenyce can't believe that Chris is seemingly the top suspect in
Frederick's murder case; she knows Chris would never have killed Frederick,
even though Frederick did a lot of horrible things to Chris.
She grabs her latte and moves to the coffee bar to grab a lid when she
spots Andrew sitting in the back booth. She looks at the young man whom
she thought was her son for so many years and wonders how he is doing.
She knows that Andrew has been pretty angry with her and Chris because
Frederick was telling him that they were responsible for Savannah's death,
but they did seemingly share a close moment on Christmas when they met
at his mother's grave.
She finds herself grabbing her drink and moving to the booth where he
is sitting. "Andrew, hi," she says as she reaches his table.
"Can I join you?"
Andrew shrugs his shoulders. "If you'd like," he replies to
her, not looking up to her. He is still trying to process that he was
questioned by the police in Frederick's death. The fact that they would
think that he would have something to do with the man who raised him is
the most crazy thing he's ever heard of.
"Are you okay? You don't seem like yourself," she notes back
to him as she sits across from Andrew. "What's going on?"
"I was questioned by the police," Andrew reveals to her. "About
Trenyce nods back to him. "Yea, so was I. I think everyone who went
to see Frederick that day is being questioned by the police."
"I don't get it," he admits to her. "He raised me, they
should know I would never do anything to hurt him."
"You have nothing to worry about if you didn't do anything,"
Trenyce tells him. "I know you didn't try to kill Frederick. I believe
Andrew manages a smirk on his face. "Thanks. I don't think Chris
will be as lucky though."
Trenyce arches her eyebrow; there is no way that Andrew could know about
Chris' latest situation, so she isn't sure what he is talking about. "What
do you mean by that?"
Andrew manages to look up at her. "Well," he starts. "I
might have told the police that I overheard Chris threaten Frederick."
Trenyce's eyes open wider in surprise. "You did what? Oh Andrew."
"I couldn't lie," he tells her, his voice raising as he doesn't
like being questioned by Trenyce. "I had to tell the truth. And,
Chris, he does have a temper. Who knows what he did or didn't do to Frederick."
"Chris didn't kill Frederick," she tells him. "I've known
him for many years, he's not a killer."
"Whatever," Andrew spits back to her as he stands up. "I'm
not going to lie to anyone about what I know to be true. I just told the
police some information that may help them with this case. And, I can't
believe that you're upset that I told the truth."
"Andrew," Trenyce tries to call out to him as he walks away.
He doesn't stop, so Trenyce sighs as she turns her head back to her latte.
"I wasn't upset with you. I was just
surprised," she says
to herself, wondering if she just lost any progress she had previously
made with Andrew.
Scene Six - The Black House; Helen & Barbara's Home
"I can't believe that you were going to throw your gun away,"
Helen tells Chris as they sit in the living room of the house, and Helen
just heard Chris recount the visit he had with Simona Lopez, where she
found his gun in the trash can. She can't believe that he is a prime suspect
in Frederick's murder, but also that he would be so careless in disposing
of his weapon. "Why would you do that?"
Chris sighs as he takes a sip of the cocktail that she made him. "I
wasn't thinking," he admits to her. "Ever since I was questioned
by Lopez, I've been under so much stress. I just did something really
"There's no chance that your gun was the one that was used to shoot
Frederick, is there?" Helen asks him, hoping that her lover isn't
really a monster. Still, she can't help but wonder what is really going
on; all of the evidence is seemingly pointing towards Chris.
Chris shakes his head. "None," he tells her. "I didn't
shoot Frederick. But I get that this makes me look bad."
Helen nods back to him uneasily. "I don't think you did yourself
"I just don't know what to do," he admits to her. "The
police, they took a bunch of my stuff. I'm not sure what they were all
Helen shakes her head to him. "I think you have to be prepared for
the worst," she tells him. "It seems like Lopez, she wants to
make a case for you being the killer."
"But I didn't do this!" he stands up and protests. "I didn't
Helen uneasily nods back to him, as she recalls Barbara recently telling
her that she should end her affair with Chris and focus on Dawn. At the
time, she didn't think that her mother was making much sense, but the
truth is, she is starting to wonder if Barbara was right; maybe she should
end things with Chris, after all, all of this evidence is pretty telling.
"Do you want me to be honest?" she asks him as he looks back
to her and nods. "I think you should find a lawyer. I think that's
how serious this just got."
Scene Six - Twin Peaks Police Department
"Where are my test results?" Simona Lopez asks s she opens the
door to her office and quickly moves inside. Not only did she confiscate
Chris' gun that he was trying to dispose of, but she took his gloves,
jacket and a pair of pants that he claimed he wore the day of the shooting.
She knows that the clothing is probably a long shot but she still wanted
to have it tested for gun residue on it. She needs as much evidence as
possible to try to convict Chris, if he is the one who killed Frederick.
"They are here," a young detective comes into Lopez's office
behind her. "We just got them in."
Lopez grabs the file from the young cop and opens it quickly, reading
the results. "Well, just as I suspected," she says out loud.
"The pants have nothing on them. He's probably washed them a few
times since November."
The cop nods back to Lopez, who turns the next page. "Ah, but this
is interesting. Residue was found on Michaels gloves and jacket. That
means, he has shot his gun recently."
"He did claim he was at the shooting range on New Year's Eve,"
the other cop reminds Lopez of.
She uneasily nods back to her. "That's an easy excuse," she
whispers. "The more logical explanation is that he is the one who
shot Frederick. We have motive, we have opportunity and we have Chris
trying to cover this up by throwing his gun away. I think we have our
Scene Seven - Twin Peaks General Hospital
"Where is she? Where is Natasha?" Cory comes rushing into the
waiting room where Adam is pacing back and forth. After he called 9-1-1,
Adam rode with Natasha in the ambulance to bring her to the hospital.
Adam looks back at Cory and shrugs his shoulders. "Craig Benton is
in with her now," he reveals to Cory, who runs his hands through
his hair. "The fall she took, it must have really knocked the wind
out of her. She didn't wake up, not even in the ambulance."
Cory shakes his head in disbelief. "I don't understand what happened?"
"I don't know," Adam replies to him. "I wish I knew. I
was out for a run, and I just saw her laying on the pathway."
"Thank God you found her when you did," Cory tells him. "The
snow is really coming down out there. She could have been in way worse
"I just did what anyone would have done."
Before Cory can reply, Shane steps into the waiting room. "Hey, I
heard about Natasha. Is everything okay?"
Cory turns around and looks at him. "She's in with the doctor now.
We should learn something soon. When was the last time you saw Natasha?"
Shane looks back at him with intent. "Earlier today, at the coffeehouse,"
Shane explains. "She was upset about my relationship with Cassie.
I told her that she needed to stay out of it, but she was really worked
"Yea, she was worked up the other day too," Cory replies to
him. "I told her to let it go."
"She obviously hadn't let anything go," Shane tells him. "I
haven't seen her so upset in a long time.
"What's happening? What is this text message about Natasha?"
Cassie asks Shane, as she comes into the waiting room, having received
word of Natasha from Shane. "Is she going to be okay?"
"We don't know yet," Shane tells her, as Craig comes into the
"Craig, how is she?" Cory asks him. "How is Natasha? Will
she be okay?"
