Scene One - Twin Peaks General Hospital
slowly lifts her head from the where she is sitting on the floor in the
hospital hallway, as she has been sobbing since Tyler
walked away from her after Blake was taken into surgery. She recalls how
she told Tyler that everything that has happened is his fault; she knows
deep down that it's not true. He isn't to blame for Blake becoming brain
dead and their decision to, thus, donate his lungs to save Jacob's life.
It's not his fault that there was an ice storm and that Kim decided to
drive in the horrible weather. If she's honest with herself, however,
she doesn't know how to process everything that has happened because at
the any time now, the doctors will emerge from surgery and her son will
officially be dead. Her heart is in a million pieces in her chest and
she feels like dying herself. What's the point of living if her son is
"Kimberly, let me help you get up," Bob
appears in the hallway and sees his wife on the floor in a pool of tears.
He can't imagine what she is going through right now, but if her appearance
is any indication, he knows that she is struggling with the events that
have transpired. "You shouldn't be alone right now."
"And, you think I want to be with you?" Kim spits at him, as
she slowly stands up on her own. "See, I can get up just fine."
"I can't imagine what you're going through right now," he replies
to her quickly. "But, without you doing this, I would have lost Jacob.
I don't know how to thank you."
"Then don't thank me," she continues to be cold to him. "If
it wasn't for you
"Please, Kimberly, I don't want to fight with you."
"Then leave me the hell alone!" she says as tears fill her eyes
again. "God, you know what? You're not worth my tears."
"If there's anything I can do to help
"There's nothing you can do," she says as tearfully. "I
can't believe that all this time, I've been pointing the finger."
"Pointing what finger?"
More tears stream down Kim's face as she tries to composure herself. "I
blamed Tyler for Blake's death," she gasps for air. "Just know,
I thought, you were to blame for it. But you know what?" she continues
as she uses a finger to point to herself. "I'm to blame. I'm the
reason that my son is dead."
"Kim, no one is to blame for this," Bob tries to comfort her.
"No one could have excepted this ice storm to have hit. No one could
have predicted that the accident would have happened."
"I'm to blame,' she whispers again. "And now, I'm all alone
as a result."
"You're not alone," he moves closer to her and reaches out to
try to embrace.
"Don't you touch me," she moves back from him. "Don't you
ever touch me again!"
In the waiting room just down the hall from where Bob and Kim are, the
families of Blake and Jacob wait nervously for news that the surgery has
been completed. Shane
pace back and forth in front of the window, desperate for news that Jacob
will be okay and that he has Blake's lungs. For so long, they were worried
that he wouldn't get a set of lungs. For both of them, this is still some
kind of a miracle. However, they are quickly reminded of the reality of
the circumstances when they see Tyler, Felicia & Dominick in the room.
"I wish we would hear something already," Shane finally says
as he looks at Natasha, who for the first time in weeks has a glimmer
of hope in her eyes. "It feels like his surgery is taking forever."
"All in good time," Cassie
stands up from her chair and stretches a little. "Sometimes miracles
take some time."
"For once, I agree with Cassie," Natasha admits to everyone.
"I am getting antsy though. I'd love to know what is happening."
"Blake is dead, that's what's happening," Tyler says from his
chair. "Look, I know that you guys are thrilled for Jacob, and I
know that Kim and I agreed to this, but
this is really the most
difficult time of my life."
Before anyone can say anything else, Craig
emerge in the doorway of the waiting room. Everyone immediately stands
up. "How is Jacob? Was the surgery a success?"
"It was," Craig breathes a sigh of relief as Shane and Natasha
hug one another as Felicia
collapses in tears in Dominick's
arms. "Blake's lungs are in Jacob; there's a still a chance Jacob
might reject the lungs, but for right now, all is well."
"So it's official," Kim says behind the doctors. "My son
Neither Victoria or Craig say anything back to her. "He's a part
of Jacob now," Natasha tells her best friend as she comes up to Kim.
"We owe you and Blake our son's life. If we can do anything to help
you through this time
"There's something you can do," Kim turns and looks at Craig.
"I want to see my son."
Tyler looks at Kim nods his head. "I want to see Blake too,"
he says as a tear falls down his cheek. "We want to see our son."
"I just heard that transplant was a success," Trenyce
announces to Chris,
as she sees him sitting in the cafeteria of the hospital. She came for
some coffee and couldn't help but approach him when she spotted him sitting
"Wow," he says back to her as she sits across from him. "I
can't imagine what Kim and Tyler are going through."
"I can in some ways," Trenyce admits to him. "I felt that
way when Savannah
from me all those years ago."
"It's not exactly the same," Chris tells her. "After all,
Andrew is still alive and well. He wasn't killed."
Trenyce nods back to him. "I know, I get that," she says back
to him. "But, at the same time, I know the pain of losing a child.
So, I can appreciate what they are going through. I wouldn't wish it on
anyone that I know."
"Yea, it was a rough time for all of us."
"And you know, this entire thing with Jemma
and Jacob and Blake," she continues to tell him. "It's just
made me realize that we really do have to focus on our child. I know I
mentioned it to you earlier, but Chris, we have to find our daughter.
We have to know what happened to her."
Chris reaches over and grabs her hand. "I agreed to help you because
I know that we have too," he agrees with her. "These last couple
of months, first with being in jail and then with this chaos of the ice
storm, it's made me realize too that we need to find our child. Life is
too short for us not to do this."
"I'm so glad that you see this my way," she says, trying not
to get tears in her eyes. "Because, I've been thinking ,we should
again. I know she was sending us on false leads because of Frederick,
but I still think that she is the best PI out there. I think she could
help us find our child."
Chris nods back to her. "Okay," he tells her. "How about
we approach her when she has a moment? I suspect she'll be pretty busy
"With everything else going on, I completely forgot about that."
"I did too, I just read it in the Twin Peaks Sun today," he
tells her. "So, how about it? We'll call Meggan as soon as she's
"Sounds like a plan."
Scene Two - Twin Peaks Court House
Franklin Ross announces to the court room as he looks over at the
D.A. as Lukas' trial continues. "Please call your first witness."
Lois stands up quickly and looks over at Donovan before turning her attention
back to the front of the court room. "The people call Donovan
Donovan stands up and looks at Meggan before he looks at Lukas, who turns
around to look at his boyfriend. Lukas uneasily nods back to him, subtly
telling Donovan that everything will be okay with him taking the stand.
As Donovan starts to walk towards the front of the courtroom, however,
he can't help but think back to a few years ago when he was on trial for
killing his father, Ernesto.
Donovan can't believe how similar the situations are: both his father
and Frederick didn't accept the fact that their sons were gay and then
they ended up murdered. Donovan was found guilty and just before he was
about to receive the death penalty, Victoria and Robbie saved him. He
knows that he can't allow Lukas to go through what he did; he has to make
sure his boyfriend is saved before it gets to that point.
He sits down after he is sworn in and looks over at Lukas, already feeling
his heart racing at the situation. It's all too familiar for him.
"Mr. Moretti, what is your relationship with the defendant, Lukas
Richardson?" Lois asks her first question as she moves out from behind
Donovan gulps a little. "He's my boyfriend. We are in a relationship."
Lois nods back to him. "And, for how long have you been together?"
"We dated years ago when we both lived in Europe," Donovan explains
to the court. "Then, we separated when I moved here to be closer
to my Mom and my sister. When Lukas came to Twin Peaks, we ended up back
"Such a nice love story," Lois purses her lips together. "The
time you have been together, was Lukas open and honest about his sexuality
with his father, Frederick?"
"Lukas always knew who he was."
"That isn't the question, Mr. Moretti."
"Lukas only came out to his father last fall," Donovan tells
her. "So, I guess, he wasn't open the entire time, no."
"Before I continue with that," Lois pauses and looks at Donovan.
"Did you know that the Richardson's had a gun in their estate?"
Donovan nods back to her, feeling his heart race pick up a little. "Yes,
I did. It had been in the family for years."
"So, would Lukas have had access to the gun if he required it?"
"The entire family would have had access to it, Ms. Kam."
"Thank you," Lois smiles back to him. "Now, you mentioned
that Lukas came out to his father last fall?"
"How did Frederick react to the news?"
stands up from his chair. "The witness can't presume to know how
the deceased felt about his son's sexuality."
"Sustained," Franklin announces to everyone. "Rephrase,
"In your opinion, how did Frederick take the news?"
Donovan shakes his head. "Not well at all," he admits to everyone.
"He was not happy that his son was gay."
"You're close to Lukas, you're his boyfriend. How was Lukas following
"He was devastated," Donovan says as he looks over at Lukas.
"He wanted his father's approval more than anything else. Of course,
he was upset when he didn't receive it."
"Upset enough to go to the estate, grab the gun that he had access
to and shoot his father?"
"Sustained!" Franklin smashes his mallet down.
"No further questions, your honor," Lois smiles, knowing that
the damage was already done.
Donovan puts his head down and tries to catch his breath. He knows that
Lois did some major damage with his testimony. He closes his eyes and
can't help but think back to when the Judge announced that he, himself,
was found guilty those years ago. He looks up when he hears Josh ask his
"Sorry, can you repeat?" Donovan ask as he tries to calm himself
"Sure," Josh looks at him to make sure he's okay. "In all
the years that you've known Lukas, has he ever have had violence tendencies?"
"No," Donovan quickly answers back to him. "He has a good
heart. He wouldn't hurt anyone."
"The gun that Ms. Kam pointed out," Josh moves on. "To
you knowledge, was the gun kept in a locked drawer? Or anywhere that was
Donovan looks over at Lukas again. "It was in a cabinet in the living
room. But the doors weren't locked to the cabinet, anyone could have used
"Lastly," Josh moves closer to Donovan. "You were also
questioned by the police about Frederick's shooting, isn't that correct?"
Donovan feels the beads of sweat form on his forehead. The questioning,
it's all too much for him as he knows he went through this already. "Everyone
that visited Frederick the day he was shot was questioned. I happened
to visit him that day, so yes, I was questioned. But, the police didn't
think I was a prime suspect."
"But, there were many of you questioned?"
"Yes, a lot of people were upset with Frederick."
"So, any of those people could have had used the Richardson's gun
to shoot Frederick?"
"I suppose so, yes."
"No further questions," Josh moves back to his seat.
"Redirect," Lois quickly stands up and looks at Donovan, which
makes Donovan even more nervous. He had hoped that it was over and he
could move on from this. "You said you were questioned by the police."
"Why didn't they pursue you as a suspect?"
"I had an alibi," Donovan informs her, still feel hot under
"Where were you?"
Donovan shakes his head. "I was with a friend," he tells her.
"Maybe the friend also wanted Frederick to die?"
"No," Donovan tells her. "I was with my boyfriend at the
"Craig Jenkins?" Lois asks him, as Donovan wipes his brow. "Wasn't
he a suspect too? How exactly did you to get off? Maybe you wanted to
show Frederick who was boss for mistreating Lukas?"
"Objection!" Josh stands up furious at Lois.
"We were in bed! Okay? Craig and I were making love the night Frederick
was shot!" Donovan yells out, immediately feeling his face go pale
as he looks over at Lukas, who is mortified. Franklin smashes his mallet
"Order in the court! That's enough, Ms. Kam!"
"No further questions," she purses her lips together, as Donovan
and Lukas continue to look at one another.
Scene Three - Twin Peaks
Andrew calls out to his new friend as he sees her emerge from the chapel,
her eyes red from tears. He had heard that the transplant surgery was
finished, so he knows that one on hand Paige must be happy that Jacob
is alive, but devastated that Blake is dead.
"It's not a good time," Paige manages to say back to him. "I
should go back and be with my family."
"Yea, that's understandable," Andrew replies to her. "I
just saw you and thought I would let you know that I'm really sorry about
Blake. This is such an awful tragedy. There are no winners here."
"Well except for Jacob," Paige replies to him. "It's a
miracle that he was able to get a set of lungs after all. But my uncle
Andrew pulls her into a hug, which surprises Paige. She hesitates for
a moment before she hugs him back. "If there's anything that you
need from me, feel free to ask, okay?"
"I appreciate that," Paige says as they exit their embrace.
"One day I guess I will understand what all of this means. Until
then, thank you for your support."
"Sure," Andrew nods back to her. "I won't keep you; go
be with your family right now."
"Darling, are you sure you want to do this?" Felicia asks Tyler,
as she pulls him aside, slightly mortified that he wants to go to the
morgue with Kim to see Blake. She knows that he must be devastated that
his son is dead, but she doesn't believe that seeing Blake in this state
is the best thing for Tyler; she wants him to remember Blake as the bright
and energetic little boy that he was, not the carcass that will remain.
She looks at Tyler with intent, having never seen him look so distraught
Tyler looks back at his mother and feels his lip start to quiver. She
immediately pulls him into a hug, knowing that he is going through hell
right now. "Oh baby," she says as she holds him, letting a tear
fall down her cheek. "I wish I could do something to make this pain
"There's nothing anyone can do," he whispers back to her. "I
just think being with Blake one more time will give me peace of mind."
"It very well may," she replies to him as they exit their embrace.
"But you have to listen to me, you can't look at him. You can't see
the state your little boy is in now. Those images will haunt you for the
rest of your life
please, believe me when I tell you that."
Tyler nods back to her. "I just want to be near him," he says
back to her. "I just want to tell him that I love him one more time."
"He knows," Felicia tells him. "Blake knew how much you
and Kim loved him. He'll always know that."
"I just think," he gasps for some air. "I'll feel better
telling him one more time."
"Of course," she nods back to him. "Just remember what
I said, okay?"
"Kim, are you sure you want to do this?" Andy
takes his sister aside, sort of shocked that she requested to see Blake
after the transplant. He knows that she is obviously not thinking well,
because he knows that seeing Blake in this state would kill Kim even more
than everything else already has. "You can't be serious about wanting
to see Blake now. You know what they did to him, right?"
"I don't care what they did to him!" Kim protests quickly, a
mix of sadness and anger coming out of her. "That's my little boy!
And he's dead Andy, do you know that means? He's never coming back to
"I know, I know," Andy pulls her into a hug as tears follow
from her eyes. "I know how cruel this twist all was for you. But,
the Blake now isn't the Blake you remember. He's not going to look the
same way. I don' t want you to torture yourself."
"I just need to be by him. I want to be near my son one more time.
The final time
"Kim, I wish
"Please Andy," Kim protests to him. "Don't try to change
my mind. Just be there for me when I come out of the morgue. Please
Andy uneasily nods back to her. "Of course."
"Dominick, I'm glad that I have a moment with you," Eva
tells her husband as she comes up to him, everyone still reeling from
the aftermath of the ice storm. "I think we need to talk."
"I don't think now is the best time," Dominick replies to her.
"I know you've been very supportive throughout this mess, but Eva,
it doesn't change what you did to Felicia. I haven't forgotten."
"Oh Dominick," Eva waves her hand in the air. "Really?
After everything that has happened, you don't think you can find in your
heart to forgive me? Doesn't all of this chaos make you realize what is
actually important and what is not important? Love, marriage, family,
that's what's important."
"I've learned that the hard way," he replies to her quickly.
"My Grandson, I can't believe my precious Blake is gone."
"I know," Eva shakes her head. "And, my Grandson was saved
as a result. It feels awkward. My heart is breaking for you, Tyler and
Felicia but I can't help but
"Be happy?" he asks her as she uneasily nods back to him. "It
is fine, Eva. Really. You should go be with Natasha and Shane, they would
like your support right now."
"I will, but first, I wanted to talk to you about something. It's
important, it can't wait."
"What could be so important at a time like this?" he asks her,
looking at her shocked. In his mind, Blake is dead and Jacob is alive;
what else could be relevant right now?
"I know the truth about the accident," she reveals as he turns
away from her. "I know that it was a Robertson Enterprises truck
that hit Kim's car."
There's silence between them for a moment. "Did you hear what I said?"
she asks him, when he doesn't reply to her.
He turns around livid with his wife. "I heard you," he says
in a yelled whispers. "How dare you snoop into this? Don't you realize
that our families are going through hell right now?"
"Of course I do!" she tells him. "I just
I had to
know the truth."
"So you know," he crosses his arms over his chest. "Now,
what are you going to do?"
"Looks like we had the same idea," Shane says as he approaches
Natasha, who is standing outside the ICU window where Jacob is laying
post-surgery. They can see their son laying in the incubator, only there
is no respirator this time. He's breathing on his own, however he does
have bandages wrapped around his chest, as the surgery was intense for
someone his age. They will keep him in the ICU until they know he is out
of the woods.
"I had to come and see him," Natasha says with a slight grin
on her face. "It's crazy how a few hours ago we were about to pull
the plug on him
"Don't go there, Nat," Shane stops her as he puts his arm around
as they look at Jacob. "We've been given a miracle. Look, he's breathing
on his own."
"I know," a tear falls down Natasha's cheek. "I asked if
we could go and see him, but it's too soon."
"The sight in front of me is the best sight I've seen in a very long
time," Shane smiles, as they continue to watch Jacob breath. "He's
alive, Nat. He's alive."
and Cassie slowly walk into the hallway and see Shane's arm around Natasha
as they look at Jacob in the ICU. Cory gulps as he looks over at Cassie,
who arches her eyebrow. Cory immediately starts thinking about Cassie's
words that this ordeal has pushed Shane and Natasha closer together than
ever before. If that's true, he wonders, where does that leave him?
"I agreed to let you guys see Blake," Craig announces to Kim
and Tyler as they walk into the morgue. "But, I have to advise against
removing the sheet covering Blake's body. The surgery is pretty intense,
I don't want you to see Blake's chest that way."
Kim nods back to him. "Andy told me the same thing. I just
want to be near him."
"Me too," Tyler says grabbing Kim's hand. "Come on, let's
go see our son."
They walk slowly towards Blake, who is laying on a table, with a white
sheet over his small body. They reach the table and Kim sees Blake's little
fingers peeking out from under the white sheet. She grabs his hand and
kisses it, startled by how cold he feels already.
"He's so cold Tyler," she says as she looks up to him. "God,
what have we done? My baby is cold."
"I'm so proud of you," Tyler whispers to Blake, as he gets choked
up a little. "I asked you to be brave and you were. You saved Jacob's
life, you're a hero."
Kim looks up at him and finds
herself nodding. "That's a nice way to think of it," she tells
Tyler. "Blake is a hero. He saved someone's life. He'll forever be
remembered a hero. Do you hear that, Blake? You're a hero."
"Your Mom and I," Tyler continues as he comes over and puts
his arms around Kim. "We love you so much, Blake. We'll never stop
Kim is unable to stop her tears from flowing. "I love you Blake,"
she says through more tears. Tyler throws his body over Kim's back and
holds her as they sob together, Kim's hand never leaving Blake's.
