Scene One - The Sugarbowl
"I haven't seen you in so long," Dawn smiles over to Max as
they sit across from one another in the back booth of the coffeehouse,
each having a latte. Dawn knows that she hasn't seen much of her friend
lately because she ran away from home so she was staying low key and Max
has been busy working at Robertson Enterprises. "How are things?"
"I can't complain," Max replies to her with a smile on his face,
happy to see his long-time friend. "Things are Robertson are going
well, really well," he tells her. "I think Robin and Dominick
are happy with the work I'm doing."
"That's amazing," Dawn says back to him. "I always knew
that you'd do great things with the camera, your talent was always there."
Max chuckles back to her a little. "Well, the only downside about
it is that I've had to cut back on the weed."
Dawn nods back to him. "That's not a bad thing," she tells him.
"We all have to grow up sometimes, right?"
"Yea, I guess," Max says back to her, still missing his past
times when he was getting high.
"So, any girls in your life?" she asks him as he blushes a little,
causing her to lean forward. "Oh, there is. Come on, spill the beans!"
Before Max can reply, Paige arrives at the booth. "Hey guys,"
says to her friends. "Am I interrupting?"
"Of course not," Dawn smiles back to her, even though she is
still curious about Max's love life. "Max and I were just catching
up. You are welcome to join us, if you'd like?"
"Yea, thanks," Paige says as she scoots into the booth next
to Dawn. "I saw some of your pictures in the windows of the new boutique,"
Paige tells Max. "They look amazing."
"I was telling him the same thing!" Dawn chimes in, as Max blushes
"You guys are too much, seriously, thanks. You two are the best friends
a guy could ask for."
"Don't you forget it," Paige laughs back to him as Max's phone
starts to ring.
"Hello," he says as he picks it up. "Yea, I'll be right
there." He hangs up and looks at his friends. "Sorry to cut
this short, but that was work. I have to get to the boutique. See you
"Absolutely," Dawn waves to him. "We can't go so long without
seeing each other, I missed you."
"Ditto, and we won't," Max says as he walks away from the table.
Dawn looks back at Paige before she takes a sip of her latte. "Something
is different about you," Paige notes to her friend. "What's
Dawn shakes her head, trying to forget the fact that she and Shelley shared
a kiss recently and that in therapy, Cassie told her to explore her feeling
that she's been having. Dawn doesn't know what she will do, but it has
been on her mind.
"It's nothing," Dawn tries to down play Paige's questions. "I
think I'm just in a good place, you know? I've made a great new friend
in Shelley, I'm growing closer to my parents again
things are just
in a good place, which is the first time in a long time that I can say
"Well, then, I'm happy for you," Paige nods back to her. "After
everything we've all been through, we deserve some happy times."
"I couldn't agree with you more!"
"Where's Blake today?" Andy asks Kim as they sit side by side
at the window seat. Andy was hoping to see his nephew when Kim asked to
meet him today but she arrived solo. Secretly, Andy is happy to have some
time with his sister because the last time he saw Bob, he was asking him
if he thought that Kim was acting odd. Andy has also thought that Kim
has been acting a little strange lately, but he doesn't know what is about.
"Tyler has him," Kim quickly replies to him, not really wanting
to mention the name of the man who fathered her son. She still can't believe
that he's blackmailing her into going back to him. "But, I will pick
him up tomorrow. You want to get together soon with him?"
"I'd love that," Andy nods back to her. "You know how much
I love spending time with Blake."
Kim smiles back to him. "And, he loves spending time with you. Let's
do it then?"
"Sounds like a plan," Andy says before he takes a sip of his
coffee. "So, can we talk about something? And, I want you to be honest
Kim arches her eyebrow back to her brother. "You know we can talk
about anything, Andy. Is sounds serious, is everything okay?"
"You tell me?" Andy asks her back. "You haven't been yourself
for weeks now, what's going on? And before you say nothing, you should
know that Bob has noticed it as well."
"Bob has noticed what?" Kim quickly asks him, worried about
what Bob may or may not know. She knows she has been covering up lie after
lie since she foolishly gave Tyler for the formula for the facial cream.
"Just that you haven't been yourself," Andy replies to her.
"We can see that something is troubling you. What is it?"
"Nothing," Kim lies to him, knowing that if she tells Andy what's
going on, he will be put in a bad place of having to lie to Bob. "I
guess I've just been run down with everything going on at Roboto, you
know we are still trying to play catch up with this facial cream fiasco."
"Yea, I can imagine," Andy says. "I know how much Bob hates
losing to Dominick."
"He won't lose," Kim replies to him. "I know my husband,
he will not let Dominick get the best of him. But, I do appreciate you
making sure I'm okay. I am fine, really."
Andy uneasily nods back to her. "Okay, but I hope you know you can
come to me with anything. I'm always going to be here for you."
"I know that," Kim smiles back to him. "Thank you. You're
the best brother a girl could have."
Scene Two - Tyler's Townhouse; Tyler & Felicia's Home
"Oh darling," Felicia smiles as she comes into the living room
and sees Tyler playing on the floor with Blake; she loves seeing her son
and grandson together, nothing warms her heart more. "Do you know
how much I love seeing the two of you together?"
Tyler kisses Blake on the head, who continues to play with the car in
has in front of him, before Tyler standing up to face his mother. "I
know you do," Tyler smiles back to her. "He's a pretty special
"You can say that again," Felicia nods back to her. "The
last time we really spoke you said that you hadn't given up hope on you
and Kimberly being a family. Is that still a go?"
Tyler breaths a heavy sigh, wondering if he has gone too far in his quest
to get Kim back. He knows that taping them having sex on New Year's Eve
was a risky thing to do, but now that he has revealed his plan to her,
he can't go back. He only hopes that one day Kim will realize that he's
doing this because he loves her and wants to be a family with her and
Blake. If she does, then he will get everything he's always wanted.
"I think it is," he says proudly to Felicia. "I think Kim
will be coming back to me very soon."
"That's wonderful," Felicia replies to him, as the doorbell
rings. "I wonder who that could be?"
Felicia quickly moves to the front door and opens it, seeing Dominick
on the other side. "Oh, Dominick," she says allowing him into
the house. "Tyler and I were just spending some time with Blake.
Would you care to join us?"
"I'm afraid I can't stay long," Dominick tells her and Tyler.
"I have some business to attend to at Robertson, but I've learned
something and I wanted you both to hear it from me."
"What is it Dad?"
"I threw Eva out of the house last night," he reveals as Felicia
gasps, shocked that Dominick would throw out his wife.
"Why would you do that?" she asks him.
"Because, I learned that she knew Frederick Richardson was brainwashing
you," Dominick reveals to them, unable to hide his disgust. "She
knew the entire time and she said nothing! The thought of her lying still
makes my blood boil."
Felicia covers her mouth in horror. "But why would she do that?"
Tyler asks him. "That doesn't make any sense at all."
"Because she wanted to marry me," Dominick continues to explain.
"She thought if Felicia didn't love me anymore, then it would open
the door for our marriage."
"That devil!" Felicia cries. "She knew what he was doing
to me and she let him get away with it! How could she do this?"
"I wish I knew," Dominick moves up to her to comfort her, but
she pushes him away.
Felicia rushes to the door. "I have to go!" she yells, as Tyler
tries to call out for her to stop. But it's too late, they hear the front
door slam closed behind her.
"Let her go," Dominick tells his son. "She needs to get
her head around this betrayal."
"Seems like we all do," Tyler puts his hand on his father's
shoulder. "If I can do anything, Dad."
"Thanks, Tyler. I'm just going to try to focus on work right now
and whatever happens, happens."
Scene Three - The Black House; Helen & Barbara's Home
"Would you like a cup of a tea?" Barbara asks Helen as she comes
into the living room and sees her daughter staring out the large window.
Barbara waits for a moment before she comes up to Helen and puts her hand
on her shoulder, causing Helen to jump. "Sorry, I didn't mean to
startle you, I was asking if you'd like a tea."
"No, I'm fine," Helen waves her hand in the air, trying to calm
"Well, something is upsetting you," Barbara tells her daughter.
"Maybe some tea would help."
"I don't want any damn tea!" Helen snaps back at her mother.
"I'm sorry. I shouldn't have snapped at you."
"It's fine," Barbara replies to her. "But something is
troubling you. Does it have anything to do with Chris Michaels being arrested
for killing Frederick Richardson?"
"Mom, you don't know that Chris is guilty."
"Oh please," Barbara tries not to laugh. "I highly doubt
the police would have arrested that man if they didn't think he was the
one who killed the doctor. The police don't like to arrest innocent people."
"Chris says he is innocent!"
"And you believe him?" Barbara asks Helen, who turns away from
her. If Helen is honest with herself, she has no idea what to believe.
"Ah, well your silence says it all. I told you weeks ago to end this
affair with Chris, Helen. Now, that he has been revealed to be a killer,
I don't know why you are still with that man! You need to dump him and
you need to dump him now!"
"Mother, please," Helen whispers back to her. "I have a
lot on my mind," she explains to her. "I don't need to hear
a lecture from you, okay?"
Just then, the sound of the tea kettle whistling in the kitchen can be
heard. "I'm going to make my tea," Barbara says before she leaves
Helen looks back at the out window, her mind racing about Chris getting
arrested. Like Barbara said, the police wouldn't have arrested him if
they didn't think he was the killer. "Have I really been sleeping
with a murderer all these months?"
Scene Four - The Pampa Grill
Trenyce steps into the restaurant, looking to grab a quick bite to eat
before her meeting at Robertson Enterprises later in the day. As she moves
inside, she sees Andrew sitting at the bar having a beer. She knows that
the last time she saw him, he revealed that he told the police that he
heard Chris threaten to kill Frederick before the shooting last November.
This is part of the reason why Chris was arrested for the murder.
"Andrew," Trenyce announces as she comes up to the child she
raised for so many years. "How are you? I haven't seen you in a few
"I'm fine," Andrew takes another sip of his beer. "I mean,
better than fine now that Chris has been arrested for killing Frederick."
Trenyce shakes her head in surprise. "Why are you happy that Chris
was arrested? I know that you told Simona Lopez that you heard Chris threaten
Frederick but that doesn't mean that he killed him."
"But it doesn't prove that he didn't," Andrew replies to her
quickly. "Look, Trenyce, if the police have enough evidence against
Chris that he was arrested, then I'm happy. All I want is for the person
responsible for killing Frederick brought to justice, and if that's Chris,
then I'm happy he's behind bars."
"You know Chris!" Trenyce tries not to raise her voice and cause
a scene. "He raised you for crying out loud!"
"Not as long as Frederick raised me," Andrew replies to her
calmly. "I don't want to fight with you about this. If Chris didn't
do anything, he has nothing to worry about. Until then, I think he's getting
exactly what he deserves."
"What's happened to you?" Trenyce asks him as she grabs her
purse. "You're not the same boy I raised. You've changed."
"You never knew the real me," Andrew spits back to her. "And,
you never will."
Trenyce shakes her head in disbelief before she walks away from him, wondering
if she will ever get to see the child she once knew again.
Scene Five - Twin Peaks Police Station
"Thanks for meeting me today," Chris tells Natasha as they sit
across from each other in an integration room in the police station. He
hasn't seen anyone since he was arrested, and he had heard about Natasha's
accident, so he was waiting until he heard she was fine before he called
her. "I hope you're up to this, I heard about your fall."
"I'm fine now," Natasha replies to him quickly. "I also
heard about this arrest. I'm hoping that you called me here to tell me
that you didn't do this?"
"Of course I didn't do this," Chris replies to her. "I
asked you here to see if you'll be my lawyer. I need the best, Natasha.
They want to put me away for something I didn't do. I need your help,
say you'll help me?"
"Of course I'll help you," Natasha nods back to him. "But
you have to tell me everything, Chris. No secrets, because that will hurt
you down the road. I'll ask you once, all you have to do is nod your head.
Did you kill Frederick?"
"No!" Chris yells back to her.
"Okay, I believe you," Natasha tells him. "But, we have
to have an answer for every piece of evidence that the police have against
have your gun, and the bullets are the same bullets that were used to
Let's start the night Frederick was murdered."
"New Year's Eve."
"Where were you?" Natasha asks him. "If you have an alibi,
then this will all go away."
"I already told Simona Lopez that I was at the Pampa Grill and then
I went to the shooting range. I needed to blow off some steam, so I go
"The shooting range just on the west end of the city?" Natasha
asks him as he nods back to her. "Perfect," she smiles. "I'll
head over there and see if they can verify your story. I can't believe
the police didn't do this already. If they can verify that you were there,
you couldn't have been the one who killed Frederick."
"Thanks Natasha," he says standing up and shaking her head.
"Try to hurry, I hate being in here."
"I'm on it, don't worry."
Scene Six - Robertson Enterprises; The Boutique
"Wow, you guys weren't lying, this place is amazing," Max notes
to Robin and Dominick as he looks arounds the boutique for the first time.
He had heard from them how great the space was, but seeing it has exceeded
his expectations. The fact that his pictures are plastered all over the
place, is even better for him.
"I knew you'd like," Robin smiles back to him, causing Max to
blush a little. "Your photos are really the best part of the space."
"I couldn't have done it without your help," he tells her, finally
taking his eyes off the large prints of his pictures that are plastered
on the wall and instead looks at her.
"You two are a great team," Dominick notes back to them. "And,
the reason I called you here is because the re-release of the facial cream
has been a huge success already. In fact, the shipment of the facial cream
has almost sold out in the boutique already!"
"But, we just did the relaunch? It has happened so quickly!"
Robin says unable to hide her excitement.
"The public knows that we have a great product and they can't get
enough of it," Dominick tells them. "I ow so much of this to
the two of you, you two are proving to be a force to be reckoned with."
"I've been telling Robin that for a while now," Max smiles back
to the woman he has a crush on. "Together are unstoppable and we
could do anything together. I think she's finally realizing it's true."
"I am," Robin purses her lips back to him.
Scene Seven - The Park
Andrew races through the park, desperate to get his mind off of his run
in with Trenyce. He knows that she is a supporter of Chris, but he hopes
that Chris rotes in jail for years for killing Frederick. He hates that
Frederick is dead and if Chris is the one whom killed Frederick, then
he should pay. He doesn't understand why everyone is so upset that he
feels that way; after all, Frederick raised him after Savannah died.
Andrew turns a corner on the path and runs right into someone else! Andrew
stumbles back and lights his hat to see if the other person is okay.
"I'm so sorry," he says trying to catch his breath. "I
wasn't watching where I was going."
Paige slowly looks up, having gotten knocked to the ground, and is shocked
to see Andrew. "God, you never know when to stop, do you? First you
attacked me with that snowball, now you crash into me? Didn't anyone teach
you any manners?"
"I apologized," Andrew rolls his eyes back to her. "And,
I was going to offer you hand up, but since you're being such a bitch
about it, get up on your own."
"Ugh," Paige groans as she pulls herself out of the snow. "How
about you just watch where you're going okay?"
"Yea, I said I would."
"And, if you see me around again, ignore me. You're not the kind
of person I want to be around. In fact, I want nothing to do with a jerk
"Sounds perfect to me," Andrew growls before he rushes off past
Paige, who dusts snow off herself, as she watches him walk away from her.
"What a loser," she says to herself, as she finishes brushing
the snow off herself.
Scene Eight - The Tower's; Floor Three; Shelley's Condo
"Shelley, are you home?" Dawn calls out as she comes into the
condo, fresh from seeing her friends at the Sugarbowl. "I brought
you home a mocha and a muffin, your favorites."
"You sweet thing you," Shelley arrives at the foyer to help
take things out of Dawn's hands. "How did you know that I was just
about to make a hot chocolate?"
"Lucky guess?" Dawn shrugs her shoulders as she finishes hanging
her jacket. "I'm glad your home."
"Yea?" What's on your mind?" Shelley asks her as she takes
a sip of her drink as they move into the living room.
"Do you really have to ask?" Dawn asks her as they sit on the
sofa be side each other. "The other day, we kissed."
"We sure did," Shelley chuckles back to her. "Look, Dawn,
I'm not going to take advantage of you. You're a sweet, young girl, and
I don't want you to think that you have to do anything that you're not
comfortable with. And, don't feel like you have to kiss me because you're
living with me or anything, okay?"
"Whoa," Dawn waves her hand in the air. "You've obviously
thought about it too," she says as Shelley turns away, not wanting
her to see that she has been thinking about the kiss. "The thing
is, I've had these
feelings for women for a long time. You've just
helped me realize that it's okay to have them."
Dawn nods back to her. "And, my therapist told me that I should be
exploring these feelings."
Shelley sets the cup down on the coffee table and turns to face Dawn.
"How do you think you'd like to do that?"
Dawn blushes a little before she licks her lips and she stands up from
the sofa. She slowly removes her sweater from her body, leaving her only
in her bra and jeans. "Maybe we could explore together?"
Shelley stands and looks at the young woman in front of her. "Are
you sure you want to do this?"
Dawn nods back to her before she leans in and kisses Shelley on the lips.
"I'm so very sure," Dawn says in between kisses as their hands
lock and their mouths meet again.
Scene Nine - The Pampa Grill
Felicia opens the door to the restaurant and quickly moves inside, desperate
for a drink after hearing Dominick's news that Eva knew that Frederick
was brainwashing her and didn't say anything because Eva wanted to ensure
that she could marry Dominick.
"That woman has a lot of nerve," Felicia whispers to herself
as she comes inside the restaurant. "She knew damn well that I wouldn't
have divorced Dominick had I not been brainwashed."
As Felicia waits to be seated, she happens to see Eva sitting alone having
a glass of wine. Felicia doesn't wait for the hostess to arrive, she,
instead, scurries over to Eva's table. "You monster!" Felicia
shouts at Eva.
Eva looks up and shakes her head. "I'm assuming you've spoken to
my husband? Look, Felicia, I've already apologized, I know what I did
"Wrong?" Felicia cuts her off. "You let that man play with
my emotions and feelings! Yes, what you did was wrong!"
"I'm sorry," Eva replies to her. "But I'm not going to
continue to apologize. We've all made mistakes. I'm not proud of what
I did, but I can't take it back now."
"No, you can't," Felicia whispers back to her. "The damage
is done. I've already lost my husband!"
"He's my husband now," Eva reminds her.
Felicia slaps Eva hard across the face. "Only because of all the
lies you told! I will never forgive you for this, Eva. And you better
watch your back, because I will get what I deserve! Mark my words!"
Next on One Day at a Time
- Kim tells Tyler she's made up her mind
- Jacob has a medical crisis
- Dominick orders more facial cream
