Theme song: "Lost in Your Light" Dua Lipa
Previously on One Day
at a Time
"It was quiet," Robbie replies to her quickly, knowing that Leah wants to make her marriage to Jeff work, so he stayed in.
"At Christmas you mentioned that Leah was close to making a decision about who she wanted to be with," Natasha looks him in the eyes and can see the pain there. "Oh Robbie "
He shakes his head a little, trying to remain upbeat. "I'm fine," he tells her quickly. "I had a feeling that this was coming."
"It still couldn't have been easy for you to hear that she wants to be with Jeff," Natasha replies to him. "Do you need anything?"
"Nah, I'll be good," Robbie says back to her. "But, thanks."
"Maybe this means you and Victoria can get back together? You two seemed solid for a long time."
"That has come and gone," Robbie informs her. "Victoria has told me repeatedly that she won't be a second choice."
Natasha shrugs her shoulders. "After everything that you two have been through together, I think you owe it to her and your love to reach out one more time. Maybe my half-sister will surprise you."
"You really think so?"
"What could it hurt?" Natasha asks him. "You've lost Leah, it shouldn't mean that you have to lose Victoria too."
Robbie uneasily nods back to her. "Thanks Nat," he tells her. "I'll mull it over and see what happens."
At the window bar, Andrew sits in the middle between Paige and Cheresa. After meeting Cheresa on New Year's Eve, Andrew thought he should introduce her to Paige; he realized that since they are both good friends with Dawn, it would be ideal for them to meet, so they could all get to know one another.
"What a small world that you two randomly met at the Pampa Grill on New Year's Eve," Paige moves a piece of her hair behind her ear. "How are you liking Twin Peaks so far?"
Cheresa smiles back over to her new friends. "My parents are actually here, so I'm not really new to the city exactly," she reveals to them.
"You didn't mention that at the party," Andrew replies, surprised to hear that Cheresa's parents are here too.
"Yea, I guess it didn't come up. I think we've all been surprised that we all know Dawn," Cheresa purses her lips together. "Do you guys ski or snow board? It would be cool to head up to the mountains one weekend."
"I don't do either," Paige chuckles back to her. "But, I'd be game to hang out in a cabin by a fire for a while!"
"That sounds fun," Andrew winks back to her before looking back at Cheresa. "We should get Dawn on board and see what works for her."
"Yea," Cheresa nods back to her. "After everything she's been through, she could probably use some time away and to just have fun."
"I couldn't agree more," Paige smiles back to her. "Cheresa, I think we are going to get along very well."
Twin Peaks General Hospital
"I'm glad I caught you before you left for the day," Victoria purses her lips together as she stands in the doorway of Shane's office at the hospital and watches him put some files into his briefcase. As she looks at him, she can't help but think back to the party on New Year's Eve when Shane kissed her. The kiss has taken her by surprise because she has been so focused on moving on from Robbie; but a part of her did like reconnecting with her ex-husband again.
"Yea, I'm just on my way out. Are you working the day shift today?" he looks up at her.
"You've been here all night?" she sighs back to him, realizing that he is about to leave so he must have been on the graveyard shift.
"My favorite shifts," he winks back to her as he nods. "I'm glad that I ran into you. I think we should discuss what happened on New Year's, don't you?"
Victoria feels her heart skip a beat as she isn't sure why she is so nervous talking to Shane about their kiss. "I guess so," she nods back to him, as she moves inside his office and closes the door behind herself. "It was just a kiss, Shane."
"I know, I know," he laughs back to her. "And, we've done a lot more in the past. But, I am seeing Cassie."
Victoria nods her head back to him before she waves her hand in the air. "Say no more," she looks back at him. "The absolute last thing I need is to get involved with a man who is already seeing someone else. Been there, done that, don't need to go down that road again."
"I don't want to hurt you," he says moving closer to her, knowing her recent history with Robbie.
"You're not hurting me," she replies to him. "We kissed on a night when people tend to kiss. But more importantly, you're my friend and I don't want to do anything that could ruin that."
"Me neither," Shane says back to her. "I cherish that we can bounce things off one another when we have too."
"I like that too," Victoria smiles back to him. "We can forget the kiss happened."
"Already forgotten," he winks back to her before he pulls her into a hug, even though the both are clearly still thinking about the kiss that they shared.
The Cascade Apartments; Apartment 305; Donovan's Home
"You slept in," Donovan says to Craig, who slowly walks into the kitchen and immediately pours himself a cup of coffee. As Donovan looks at Craig, he can't help but recall how the previous night Craig showed up at his doorstep and they ended up in bed together. At the time it seemed like a good idea, but now he is wondering if it was a good idea because he knows that he still has feelings for Lukas.
"Yea, sorry," Craig takes a sip of his java. "I guess you wore me out last night."
Craig looks over at Donovan, who stands up. Immediately, Craig can tell that something is going on with Donovan just by the look on his face. "It was a joke?"
"I know it was," Donovan comes up to him. "I don't want you to think that I didn't enjoy last night, because it was great."
Craig sets his coffee cup
down and braces himself for what Donovan is about to tell him.
Donovan sighs a little and
runs his hand through his hair. "I still have feelings for Lukas,"
"You know that Lukas has thrown you to the curb," Craig defends their being together. "I don't get why you're so hung up on him. We could be so great together. Last night proved that."
"I don't deny that," Donovan replies to him. "I guess I just don't want you to think that we are going to be a couple now or anything."
"What are you saying? You think last night was a mistake?"
Donovan looks down. "I don't want you to take this the wrong way," he whispers back to him. "I had fun last night, it was great. But deep down, yea, I guess I do think it was a mistake."
Craig shakes his head back to him. "I guess I'll get dressed and see myself out."
"Craig, wait," Donovan calls out to him.
"No," Craig doesn't turn around to face him. "I think we've said all there is to say."
The Richardson Estate;
Meggan & Lukas' Home
Lukas rolls over in his large king size bed and opens his eyes quickly when he doesn't feel anyone next to him. He slowly sits up in bed and looks at his clock, realizing that it is late in the morning already. He looks back in the bed and can tell that someone was with him last night; not just someone, Andy. He looks around the room and doesn't see any sign of his lover, but he doesn't get a sly grin on his face remembering how hot their sex was the night before.
"Andy?" he calls out as he crawls out of bed, exposing his toned, naked body. "Where'd you go?"
He moves over to the washroom and sees the door closed. He knocks on the door. "Andy?"
"Yea, just a minute," Andy's voice calls out.
"Take your time," Lukas chuckles back to him. "I'm just glad you're still here."
Andy opens the door and to Lukas' surprise, he is fully dressed. "I just had a quick shower. I didn't mean to worry you."
"You didn't have to shower," Lukas replies to him. "I was hoping we'd spend the morning in bed together."
Andy uneasily chuckles back to him. Before he can say anything, Lukas leans in and kisses him. "Last night was so hot," Lukas tells him. "I had a really good time with you."
"Thanks," Andy says, breaking away from his kisses. "I had a nice time too."
"That's it?" Lukas asks him in surprise. "Just a 'nice time?'"
"Why don't you shower and get dressed?" Andy replies to him. "I'll take you to breakfast and we can talk?"
Lukas chuckles back to him. "Sure, I could use the food. As long as we come back here after?"
Andy doesn't get a chance to respond to Lukas, who moves past him and turns the shower on. "I just hope you can accept what I have to tell you," Andy whispers to himself, as he looks back at Lukas.
The Tower's; Floor Four;
"It was alright," Natasha replies to him quickly. "Leah has decided to make her marriage to Jeff work, so I think he was a little bummed out."
"Sorry to hear that," Cory welcomes her with a hug once her jacket is off. "That situation was bound to end up with someone getting hurt."
"Yea, I just hope he can rebound quickly. I told him that much," she replies to him. "How's your day going?"
"I can't complain," he says back to her. "I was just looking at the sales from Wild Night on New Years, and we had a great night."
Cory looks over at Natasha, who is pouring herself a glass of red wine and not really focused on what he is saying. "Nat, did you hear what I said?"
Natasha turns back around after taking a sip of her wine. "Sorry, I guess I was distracted. But yes, I'm thrilled that Wild Night did so well."
"What are you thinking about?" Cory asks her. "Hopefully not the adoption wait list, you know that will happen when it is time for us."
"Yes, I know that," Natasha replies to him quickly. "I was thinking about Cassie Nova and her relationship with Shane. I think she's using him, I really do. The question is, how am I going to prove it?"
Cory sighs heavily. "Oh Nat, not this again," Cory mumbles back to her. "You have to let this go. We have so much else going on right now."
"I know," Natasha rolls her eyes back to him. "I agree, we do have a lot going on, but Cory, after everything that woman has put me through, I just can't let her worm her way back into our lives. I can't believe that Shane doesn't see what she is capable of!"
"Shane is an adult," Cory reminds her. "Whom he chooses to spend his time with, is really up to him."
"Not if it's with Cassie Nova," Natasha grits her teeth together. "Especially because I think she is using him. I just have to find a way to prove it. I won't stop until I can prove it."
