Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"I can't believe that Natasha just fell like that," Bob tells Robbie as they sit in the waiting room, hoping to see Natasha once Eva is finished visiting her. As soon as Cory told them that Natasha was in the hospital, they rushed right now. Bob only hopes that his daughter is fine. "She's usually not the clumsy type at all."

Robbie shakes his head in disbelief. "I know," he agrees with his father. "The good news is that Craig Benton said that she should make a full recovery. I still don't like the fact that Natasha was with Cassie Nova when this happened."

"You think that Cassie did something to hurt Natasha?"

Robbie shrugs his shoulders. "Shane didn't seem to think so, but after everything that has happened between Cassie and Natasha in the past, it did cross my mind."

"You're right," Bob tells him. "Maybe I should talk to Cassie."

Robbie tries not to chuckle back to his father. "I'm not sure that will help anything. The best thing we can do is support Natasha, and try to make her realize that being around Cassie isn't the best idea."

Bob sighs, knowing his son is right. "I just don't want that woman hurting my daughter. Not now, not ever."

"I agree with you," Robbie replies to him. "We have to keep Cassie away from Natasha. Otherwise, God knows what will happen."


Eva slowly opens the door to Natasha's hospital room and moves inside, not wanting to wake her daughter up. Eva watches Natasha sleep for a moment before she moves up and sits in the chair next to her bed. She grabs her daughter's hand and is so grateful that she will be okay; she was so worried when she heard that Natasha fell on the ice.

She looks up when Natasha stirs in her sleep. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to wake you up," Eva tells her. "I can come back later if you want to get more sleep."

Natasha shakes her head and squeezes her mom's hand. "Please stay," she whispers back to her.

"Can I get you anything? Do you want me to bring Jacob in for a visit?"

"I'd love that," Natasha nods back to him. "I want to see my little boy."

Eva can see the water forming in Natasha's eyes, so she knows immediately that something is wrong. "What is it Natasha? What's wrong? Craig Benton said that you would make a full recovery, why the tears?"

Natasha uses her free hand to wipe a tear away as she recalls how Craig told her that the fall that she had has resulted in her unable to have any more children. The idea of not being able to give Jacob a little brother or sister really devastates Natasha, as she loves being a mother.

"Craig told me that the same thing, that I should make a full recovery," Natasha replies to her slowly. "Only there's a catch."

Eva shakes her head in confusion. "Which is what?"

"I didn't really understand everything he said with the entire medical lingo," Natasha admits to her Mom. "But, he told me that I can't have any more children. I can't get pregnant again."

"Oh Natasha," Eva gasps as she moves closer and pulls her daughter into a hug. "I know how much you wanted to give Jacob a sibling one day."

Natasha, now being held by her mother, is unable to control her tears and they start to flow. "I don't know how to process this," she cries to Eva. "How am I supposed to go on knowing that I'll never have another child?"

Eva looks into her daughter's eyes. "Now, you listen to me, Natasha," she tells her. "You have that beautiful son; Jacob is even more of a blessing now. And, if you ever want another child, there are so many other options that you can explore. This isn't the end of the world. I know it hurts, but baby, you have so much to be grateful for."

Natasha uneasily nods back to her. "I know," she bites her lip. "But this still hurts. It hurts a lot, Mom."

"Oh baby," Eva pulls her into another hug. "I'll hold you until you tell me you're okay. I won't let you go through this alone."

Scene Two - Roboto; Bob's Office

"Am I safe to assume that you're alone?" Tyler asks Kim as he opens the door to Bob's office and moves inside. He looks around and doesn't see Bob, which he already knew he wasn't there because he heard of Natasha's accident. Had he expected Bob at the office, there's no way that he would have shown up at the office, but he had to see Kim. The last time they saw each other, she told him that it was over between them, but he knows that he wants her back and is determined to make sure that she comes back to him; he won't accept anything else.

Kim looks up from the computer and sighs heavily. The last person she wants to see is Tyler; after she had sex with him on New Year's Eve, she wants nothing else to do with him. She gave him what he wanted for his silence within regards to giving him the formula for the facial cream; it's time he accept that she wants to make her marriage to Bob work and leave her alone.

"I am alone," she finally tells him. "Bob is at the hospital dealing with a family emergency. That doesn't make this visit okay, Tyler. I told you the other day at the park that we are over. I don't want to see you anymore."

"That's impossible," he looks back to her. "We share a son together. We are going to see one another, if for nothing else, for Blake."

"Leave our son out of this," Kim stands up from the desk. "I gave you want you wanted for your silence. We have nothing more to discuss. When I told you that, I meant it."

Tyler laughs a little. "One of things that I've always loved about you is how feisty you can get," he winks back to her.

"Are you flirting with me? God Tyler, you need to let this go. I'm married to Bob. I want my marriage to work."

"That's not exactly what you were saying on New Year's Eve," he laughs back to her.

She rolls her eyes. "I'm beginning to think that night was a mistake. I shouldn't have given into your demands."

"But you did," he tells her. "And, having you again has made me realize how much I love you. I still love you, Kim. I always have."

"I don't care how you feel!" she yells back to him. "What part of we are over, aren't you understanding?"

"You won't even give me the chance to explain myself?"

She shakes her head. "No, I want you to leave me alone! I want you out of my life, for good this time!"

"Fine," he puts his hands up in the air. "I just thought that night was special. You and I, we are so good together."

"We were good together, as in past tense."

"Okay," he says as he starts to walk towards the door. He pauses and turns back to her, as he pulls his phone out of his pocket. "I guess Bob won't mind seeing this then?"

She turns around to face him and arches her eyebrow. "What is that?" she asks him, as a video starts playing on his cell phone.

"Us, making love on New Year's Eve," he reveals to her as she gasps in shock. "I made a video of us."

"You did what?" she asks him shocked as she rushes up to him and grabs the phone from his hand so she can see the video. Sure enough, she's laying on the bed and Tyler is making love to her. "I can't believe you did this! Why would you do this to me?"

Tyler grins back to her. "I thought you'd never ask."

Scene Three - The Sugarbowl

Daisy moves inside the coffeehouse, desperate for her caffeine fix since she has had a rather taxing morning at City Hall. As she grabs her coffee and moves to the coffeebar, she feels a presence come up behind her. She turns and sees Jemma standing there, holding a latte in her hand.

"Looks like we had the same idea this mornin'," Jemma greets her as she gets a smile on her face. "I know you probably busy with work today, but I wanted to come and say hi."

"I appreciate that you did," Daisy nods back to her mother. "But you're right, I am busy today. I should get going."

"Daisy," Jemma calls out, stopping Daisy from walking away from her completely. "You said you need time, and Imma tryin' to give that to you, but can you at least give me an idea that we can make this work in the end?"

Daisy sighs and moves back up to her mother. "I do love you, Jemma," Daisy tells her. "But the secrets and lies … I'm trying to get my head around them."

Jemma can't help but smile since Daisy told her that she still loves her. "I love you too sweet child. I love you too."


"I can't stay too long, I have to get to the hospital," Craig tells Donovan as they sit in the back booth together. Craig had gotten a text from Donovan asking to meet him for a quick breakfast this morning; he only assumes it is because they hadn't seen one another a lot lately.

"How is Natasha?" Donovan asks him, hoping that his sister will be okay.

"She should be fine," Craig replies to him. "Did you really want to see me because of Natasha?"

Donovan shakes his head and puts his head down. "No," he finally replies to him. "Look, Craig, I've been doing a lot of thinking…"

"I get the feeling that I'm not going to like this conversation," Craig admits to him before he takes a sip of his coffee.

"I'm sorry," Donovan replies to him. "I don't mean to hurt you."

"Hurt me?" Craig asks him. "Donovan, what are you talking about?"

Donovan sighs and looks back at his lover. "I don't think we should see each other anymore. It's over."

Craig uneasily nods back to him. "I see," he says. "Is this because of Lukas? Are you thinking of getting back together with him?"

Donovan shrugs his shoulders. "I don't know," he tells him. "I just know that I'm thinking about Lukas a lot, and that's not fair to you."

"No, it's not," Craig informs him. "But, the fact that you are man enough to admit that to me, I really appreciate that."

"Like I said, I don't want to hurt you Craig. I've enjoyed our time together a lot."

"Likewise," Craig manages a smile back to him.

"I know I can't ask you for any favors, but…"

"What is it? I care for you, Donovan, I'll do anything that you need me too."

Donovan uneasily looks back to him. "Anything?" he winks back to him. "Actually, I'm just hoping that you can keep everything that happened between us, between us. I don't want anyone else knowing…"

"Anyone meaning Lukas? You don't want him to know that we were lovers?"

Donovan gulps. "Yea, I guess I don't."

Craig nods back to him. "He won't hear it from me," Craig replies to him. "And, if you two do end up back together, I hope he's what you want. I've always suspected there was still something between you two."

"I don't know what will happen," Donovan admits to him. "But this was the first step. Thanks for taking this so well."

"I didn't have much choice, did I?" Craig chuckles. "Anyways, I have to get to the hospital. Talk to you later, Donovan."


"You haven't really said anything about this girl that you're interested in," Cassie tells Max as they sit next each other at the window seat of the coffeehouse. Cassie is treating Max to breakfast this morning so they could have the chance to catch up with one another. It's been far too long since Cassie had one on one time with Max, and with everything going on with Natasha, she felt like she could use the distraction.

Max uneasily sighs back to her. The last thing he wants to do is talk to his mom about his crush on Robin, even though he knows that things are progressing nicely. He knows that he locked them in the darkroom together to develop the pictures from the latest photoshoot at Robertson Enterprises and they were able to grow closer in the process. Of course, he is still ticked off that Adam saved the day; he doesn't know how or why his father is always interrupting him and Robin, but that is something he will have to deal with in time.

"Come on Mom," Max finally replies to her. "Do we really have to talk about this?"

Cassie chuckles back to him. "What? You don't want to tell your Mom about your love life?" she playfully nudges him with her arm. "That's fine, I understand. I didn't talk to my parents about mine when I was your age either."

"Thanks for understanding?" he laughs back to her. "In all honestly, there's not much to talk about. I don't think she even knows I'm alive yet."

"Oh, she knows," Cassie tells him. "You're my son, you're the most handsome guy in the world."

"Mom, stop, please!" Max laughs back to her.

"Okay, okay, I know I went overboard, but I'm so proud of you," Cassie can't hide her pride for him. "And, whatever you do, don't stop until she knows how you feel. She would be a fool not to know what a great guy you are."

"Trust me, Mom," Max nods back to her. "The last thing I'm going to do is give up on her."

Scene Four - Robertson Enterprises

"Daddy, why did you want to meet me down here?" Robin asks him as she rushes up to Dominick, who is standing in the main lobby of the Robertson Enterprises building. She had gotten an email from him asking her to meet him here, which is unusual because usually they conduct all their business in Dominick's office, or the studio.

"There you are," Dominick smiles back to her as they share a quick hug. "First of all, I saw the pictures from the latest photoshoot that Max did."

"What do you think?" Robin uneasily asks him. She knows that the pictures Max took are amazing, but Dominick can be a very tough sell when it comes to his business because he always wants the best out of his employees.

"They are wonderful," Dominick nods back to her. "In fact, I am using some of the pictures on a grander scale than just the new facial cream ad."

Robin arches her eyebrow. "You certainly have my attention, Dad. What else are you going to use the photos for?"

Dominick chuckles back to her. "I thought you'd never ask. There is a reason why I asked you to meet me here in the lobby."

"I don't understand," Robin admits to him.

"Come with me," Dominick grabs her hand as they walk together. They move around a corner and Robin gasps in surprise. Part of the main lobby has been renovated into a boutique that sells Robertson Enterprises products exclusively. "I've created a boutique that will sell our products and only our products, and I'm using Max's photos as some of the print ads."

Robin walks into the boutique and is in awe of the space. Large manikin's wearing Trenyce's designs are scattered through the space, with bottles of perfumes, facial creams and hair products on the shelves, fill the space. On the wall, large pictures hang; pictures that Max took.

"This is amazing, Daddy," Robin tells him, who smiles back to her. "I have to tell Max about this. He's going to be so excited! I almost can't believe it myself."

"Believe it, Robin. This is the start of the next phase in Robertson's future," Dominick beams back to her.

As Robin starts to dial Max's number, Dominick looks around the space, still in awe of it himself. He has long wanted to have a store front that just sells Robertson products and this boutique is the perfect first store to do this in.

He turns around and sees someone walking by the glass door outside the store. He rushes over when he sees Leah peering inside. He opens the door to welcome his other daughter. "Leah, darling," he says as she comes inside. "Come see the boutique. What do you think?"

Leah doesn't even look around the space, instead she looks back at Dominick. "Leah, what is it? What's wrong?"

"I have to tell you something, Dad," Leah admits to him. "I remembered something. And, it's about Eva."

Scene Five - Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Donovan, wait up," Lukas calls out to Donovan, who has stepped off the elevator. After leaving the coffeehouse, Donovan thought he would come by the hospital to see Natasha before heading into work. He turns around when he hears Lukas call out his name.

"Lukas, hey," Donovan smiles back to him before he licks his lips. "What are you doing here?"

"Well, I'm just wrapping up some loose ends from my Dad's will," Lukas replies to him. "He left some money to some different wings here at the hospital, so I needed to ensure that was taken care of. I heard about Natasha, will she be okay?"

Donovan nods back to him. "That's what they say," he tells him. "I'm just here to see her before heading into work."

"Cool, I'm glad to see you. It feels like it's been awhile."

"It has," Donovan nods back to him. "How are you doing, I mean, with your Dad and stuff?"

Lukas nods back to him. "Some days are tough, but Meggan and I are getting through together."

"You know I'm here for you too, right?"

"I do," Lukas smiles back to him, before he grabs his hand. "I haven't been able to stop thinking about the kiss we shared on New Year's Eve, though."

"Yea?" Donovan asks him with a grin on his face. "That's interesting because I haven't been able to think of anything else either."

"Maybe we should do it again?" Lukas asks him.

Donovan stops and looks back at him. Before they know, their lips are locked together. They part ways for a moment before they kiss again. "I want to be with you," Donovan tells him as their lips part. "Let's get together soon so we can finally sort all of this out?"

Lukas nods back to him. "I'd like that a lot, Donovan."


"Andy," Bob calls out from the waiting room that is walking out of when he spotted Kim's brother walking by. He knows how close Kim is to Andy and he wanted to see if he knew what was going on with his wife. "Do you have a moment?"

Andy stops walking towards the nurses station and looks back at Bob. "Bob, hi," he greets him with a smile. "I heard about Natasha. I hope she's okay?"

"She should be fine, thank you for asking. Why are you here?"

"I just had my physical," Andy tells him. "I'm fine. What's going on?"

"I hope you don't mind me asking you this," Bob folds his arms across his chest. "But, has Kim been acting odd to you?"

Andy arches his eyebrow. "Odd? What do you mean?"

"I can't place my finger on it," Bob replies to him. "But, she just hasn't seemed herself since New Year's Eve. Do you know what's going on with her?"

Andy shrugs his shoulders. "I don't know what is going on with her, if I am honest," Andy tells him. "But, you're right, she hasn't been herself. It's like something has been on her mind but she doesn't want to share."

"Do me a favor?" Bob replies to him. "If you find out what it is and it's serious, let me know?"

Andy nods back to him. "Yea, I will Bob. I'm sure it's nothing, but if it is serious, I'll let you know."

Scene Six - Roboto; Bob's Office

"You thought I'd never ask?" Kim asks Tyler back flabbergasted by the fact that he taped their sex session from New Year's Eve. "What kind of game are you playing?"

Tyler folds his arms across his chest. "I want you back," he reveals to her. "You and I are so good together and we could be good together every day. All I'm asking for is a chance."

Kim shakes her head back to him. "You don't get it do you?" she yells back to him. "I want my marriage to Bob work! I only fucked you to keep you quiet!"

"Well, fine," Tyler replies to her. "It's your choice, Kim. Either you can give us a chance or Bob can find out about our night together, it's up to you. You can make your decision, but just know that I won't wait forever."

Kim watches as he leaves the office. She turns around fuming; she thought that she was doing the right thing by sleeping with him but now she realizes it was the worst thing that she could have ever have done. She walks over to the bar and pours herself a brandy. After she drinks it all down quickly, she turns around and throws the glass against the wall.

"Damn you!" she yells in frustration. "Damn you straight to hell!"
