The Pampa Grill

"Answer me Max," Brad grits his teeth together as he looks over at the younger man, who just revealed to Brad that he could have him removed from Robin's world if he wanted too because he has done it before. Brad realizes that he is close to getting Max to confess what he has done to try to get Robin to notice him, and the best part is Robin is listening via the wire that Brad is wearing. While Brad believed that Robin was always telling the truth about her suspicions about Max's possible involvement in Adam's accident last fall, he wondered if Max would have actually have done something that could have hurt his father. But now, Brad is almost certain that Max did do something. "What exactly did you do to get Robin to try to notice you?"

"I really don't like your tone man," Max admits to him before he takes a sip of his beer. Max has no idea why his new friend is pressuring him so much, but he doesn't like it, not one bit. "Why do you care so much about what I did or didn't do to impress Robin? Whatever I did, it didn't work, Robin and I, we aren't going to be together. Not now, not ever."

Brad realizes that he has to ease up on Max or he won't reveal anything to him. Brad leans back in his chair. "Yea, sorry," he runs his hand through his hair. "I didn't mean to get in your face. I'm just curious as to what you all did, that's all. To be honest, I have never had much luck with women and I was hoping to learn something from you."

Max chuckles back to him a little. "You have your ex-girlfriend pregnant and now you're about to start to date Robin," Max reminds him. "I'd say you're doing pretty good on the women front."

"Maybe," Brad nods back to him. "I'd still like to think we could share tricks and trades with one another," Brad tells him. "I'm just curious as to what you did, that's all."

"You really wanna know?" Max asks him as he leans forward. "Fine, I'll tell you. But you have to promise me that it will stay between us."

"Of course," Brad replies to him quickly. "Tell me Max, tell me what you did."

***

At another table, Donovan sits across from his sister as they share a glass of wine together. Donovan asked his sister to meet him so he could see how she is doing; he recalls how he was with Eva visiting Victoria recently after her near rape on the pier and she seemed distant. Considering her past with Ernesto, he has to make sure that his sister is doing okay.

"You're not going to Bob and Kim's wedding?" Donovan asks Victoria as he takes a sip of his wine.

Victoria quickly shakes her head back to him. "I was invited," she replies to him as he moves a piece of hair behind her ear. "But, I declined. I didn't want to go to the Calimo mansion and see Robbie."

"I thought that you and Robbie agreed to be civil?"

"I thought so too," Victoria tells him. "But the night of Shane's birthday party, he tried to get us to reunite again and I, well, I lost it on him. I snapped completely."

"You didn't tell me that," Donovan replies to her. "Are you okay?"

"I'm fine," she takes a sip of her wine. "Being polite wasn't working with Robbie, so I had to be cold. I had to be firm. I had to get through to him."

"Do you think it worked?"

Victoria nods back to him. "I do," she tells him. "I haven't seen or heard from him since, so I'm thinking he's finally got the message."

"Well, that's the good news right?" Donovan looks back at her. "After everything you've been through, you deserve to have some peace and quiet for a while."

Victoria smiles back to him. "I think so too," she tells him. "But, I do appreciate you being concerned."

"For sure," Donovan replies as his phone starts to ring. "Oh, this is Lukas, excuse me for a moment."

Victoria smiles back to him as Donovan walks away from the table for a moment. As soon as he's gone, Victoria grimaces and puts her hand to her head, feeling another headache coming on.

"What is wrong with me?" she asks herself as she touches her temple.

The Piranha Night Club, Las Vegas

Loud music thumps from the speakers as the DJ plays the latest Taylor Swift remix. One of the premium gay clubs in Las Vegas is packed; guys wearing next to nothing are dancing, laughing, kissing and drinking as the music blasts from the speakers.

A shirtless Craig stands with a group of two other guys dancing away, until he realizes that his drink is completely empty. He moves up to one of his friends.

"I'm going to get another drink, do you need one?" he yells over the loud music playing. His friend shakes his head no, so Craig moves off the dance floor and moves to the closest bar he can find.

He is already drunk, but he doesn't care. He wants to have another drink. And probably another one after his next one. After learning that Donovan and Lukas were getting back together, the only thing that Craig wanted to do was escape. Coming to Las Vegas with a couple of buddies to party hard is exactly what he needs.

"I'll have a double this time," Craig winks to the hot bartender as he starts to make Craig's order. Craig looks around the bar and eyes some attractive men that he thinks might be able to help him really forget about Lukas and Donovan altogether.

Roboto; Tyler's Office

Tyler sits at his desk looking over files for the Gen Next House that is coming this summer to Roboto. He is pleased that he has already hired Abby and Paige to be in the house; and he has many more applications for other models that will be in the house with the two girls. As he looks at the files, however, he can't help but think of his recent meeting with Dominick. His father was upset that Tyler gave the idea of the Gen Next House to Roboto instead of Robertson Enterprises. Tyler knows, however, that he won't be forgiving Dominick anytime soon, especially since they are approaching the one year anniversary of Blake's death. Tyler still can't help but blame Dominick for his role in Blake's death; had Dominick not ordered more facial cream, the semi-truck wouldn't have been on the road and therefore, it wouldn't have crashed into Kim's car.

"There are some things that are unforgivable," he whispers to himself, thinking about Dominick. "I'm glad that I'm here Dad, I'm glad that I'm working towards sinking your company."

He stands up and walks to the bar in his office, where he pours himself a whiskey. He quickly takes a drink, thinking about Kim and Bob's wedding day. He almost can't believe that the day is here; there was a time when he would have done anything to stop the wedding from happening because he was sure that he and Kim would end up together. That all changed when Blake died as well.

"We've been through so much together Kim," he takes another drink of his whiskey. "I hope that you're happy; that you're finally happy."

He does quickly recall hearing Kim and Bob discuss some device a few weeks earlier. He doesn't know what kind of device they were talking about, but he will ask if it has anything to do with the Gen Next House next time he sees them. His mind wonders to Daisy, and if she will be at the wedding. He shuts his eyes for a moment and recalls how he saw her at the engagement party and they made love, again. They've been together three times now, and each time gets better and better.

"It's only a matter of time before she realizes that she wants to be with me," he says to himself. "I will be with Daisy."

The Calimo Mansion

The living room of the mansion has been transformed into the venue of the wedding. Kim and Bob, having both been married before, decided that they didn't want to have a church wedding, so they agreed to use the mansion as the venue. Guests slowly start to enter the living room to find their seats as the wedding will be starting relatively soon.

Leah< and Jeff walk into the living room together, both surprised that they got an invite considering Leah recently left Robbie to be with Jeff. Leah suspects that because she is Paige's mother, and Bob still considering Paige family, is the reason behind the invite. Not that she is complaining, she loves weddings.

"They really outdid themselves with the decorations," Leah tells Jeff as they move to find their seats.

"It's a Calimo wedding," Jeff replies to her. "They are always a little over the top."

Leah chuckles back to him. "Are you saying my wedding to Robbie was over the top?" she asks him, recalling the wedding years ago when Jeff first came back to Twin Peaks.

"Maybe a little," he jokingly nudges her. "But you're right, it is beautiful."

"Oh, I almost forgot to tell you," Leah looks at him. "I saw Meggan the other day."

Jeff arches his eyebrow. "You did? How'd that go?"

"Fine," Leah replies to him quickly. "She's pregnant."

Jeff freezes, unsure of how to react to the news. "She didn't anything outright, but I could tell by her baby bump. I didn't even know she was seeing someone."

Jeff puts his head down, recalling his conversation with Meggan before his own wedding with Leah a few weeks earlier. He confronted her about being pregnant with Brad's baby; she insisted that Brad was the father of the child, and he believed her after she admitted that she had a test done. What else was Jeff supposed to say.

"You're not saying anything," Leah looks at her husband in surprise. "I would have thought this would have been surprising news to you."

Jeff shrugs his shoulders, still unsure of what to say. "Wait a minute," Leah looks at him. "You knew, didn't you? You knew that Meggan was pregnant?"

***

Upstairs, in his personal study, Bob looks at himself in a mirror as he finishes putting his tuxedo on. He almost can't believe that the day is here; after everything he and Kim have been through, there was a time when he never believed that he and Kim would get married again. They have been through so much, he realizes. But in the end, their love always wins out.

"We will be together forever this time," he whispers to himself as he fixes his bowtie and then straightens his jacket. "We've come this far, we will make it, Kimberly."

He hears a knock on the door so he turns around and sees Robbie and Natasha slowly moving inside the room. "Robbie, Natasha," he smiles back to his children. "I'm so glad that you're here today. I know that the news of my engagement wasn't exactly pleasant for you."

Robbie exits from a hug from Bob before Natasha kisses her father's cheeks. "That's putting it mildly," Natasha purses her lips together. "We are here to see if we can do anything to make you change your mind?"

Bob uneasily smiles back to his daughter as he puts his hands on her shoulders. "My darling Natasha," he replies to her. "I love Kimberly very much. I want to spend the rest of my life with her. There is nothing you, or your brother, can say today that will stop be from wanting to marry her."

"We are just concerned about you, Dad," Robbie tells him.

"I know, and I appreciate that," Bob nods back to him. "But, whether you like it or not, I am going to marry Kimberly today. But you know what? I'd much rather get married with my children there. What do you say? Will you two put this behind you and watch me marry the woman I love today?"

"Of course Dad," Natasha puts a smile on her face. "We will be there, we wouldn't be anywhere else."

***

Kim looks at herself in the mirror as she twirls in her simple, white, cocktail dress. Considering it's not her first trip down the aisle, she decided on a simpler wedding dress this go around. Still, she thinks she looks great. She can't help but smile when she thinks that in a few short hours, she will be Mrs. Bob Calimo, again.

"After everything we've been through," she says to herself. "We are getting married again. I couldn't be happier about this."

She knows that she and Bob had their rough patches, but since Blake's death, Bob has really been Kim's rock. He helped her when he didn't have too, most notably helping her cover up the fact that she started the fire at Dominick's boutique last fall. Together, they have placed the blame on Felicia. Kim smiles knowing that she owes her freedom to Bob.

"Come in," she turns as she hears a knock on the door and Andy comes inside the room. "Andy!"

"Wow, you look amazing," he tells his sister as he comes up to her and hugs her quickly.

"Thank you, you look handsome in your tux."

"This old thing?" he chuckles back to her. "Are you ready for this? It's not too late to stop the wedding you know."

Kim playfully swats his chest. "Don't start with me, not today," she winks back to him. "You know that I love Bob. I want to marry him. I want to be his wife."

"I know you do," Andy grabs her hands and squeezes them. "Just know that I will be watching him to make sure he doesn't hurt you again. Because if he does, he will answer to me."

"And I wouldn't have it any other way," she purses her lips together.

The Black House; Helen, Barbara & Dawn's Home

"Are you sure you're okay with me tagging along with you guys?" Adam asks Helen as they stand in the foyer of the house, waiting for Dawn and Barbara to emerge from the upstairs so they can all head to the mansion together for the wedding.

Helen turns and looks at her ex-husband and puts a smile on her face. She knows that they had all agreed to go to the wedding together before she and Adam made love recently. The morning after their sex, Adam told her that they couldn't be together because he still loves Robin. Helen knew that this was the case, but she thought that because of Adam's impotence and him pushing Robin away, that they could reunite. She feels silly for getting her hopes up like that.

"Of course," Helen replies to him. "We have had this planned for a while now. And, it's nice that we are going as a family."

"I couldn't agree more," Adam smiles back to her, as Dawn appears at the top of the stairs. "Don't you look beautiful," Adam tells his daughter as she starts to walk down the stairs, revealing her larger pregnant belly.

"Thank you," Dawn smiles back to him. "I'm excited for the wedding, but I think I'll cry."

"Why do you say that, sweetheart?" Helen asks her daughter.

"My hormones have been all over the place the last couple of days," Dawn chuckles back to her as she reaches the base of the stairs.

"That's to be expected kiddo," Adam nods back to her. "I'll pack extra tissue!"

"Mom, are you almost ready to go?" Helen calls up to Barbara, who is still upstairs.

"Yes, dear," Barbara calls back to her. Upstairs, Barbara looks at herself in the mirror and smiles a little. She shuts her eyes for a moment and immediately sees Jonah's bloody, dead, body laying on the ground downstairs. She shakes her head quickly as she opens her eyes.

"Today is not the day to be remembering that scene," she whispers to herself. "But, just in case Natasha causes any problems, I have a back-up." She grabs her clutch purse and opens it, revealing a gun inside. She closes the purse and stands up quickly, putting a sly smile on her face. "I won't let her hurt my family, not ever again."

The Pampa Grill

"Well?" Brad asks Max as they continue to sit at the back table of the restaurant. "Tell me, Max, what did you do?"

Max takes a final swig of his beer before he looks back at Brad. "Did you hear about my Dad's accident last fall, at the boutique that burnt down?" Max asks him as Brad nods back to him. "Well, I caused the accident. I hurt my Dad because he was involved with Robin."

Brad leans back in his chair, stunned by Max's revelation. "Wow," he replies to him. "I know what you mean when you say you aren't proud of it."

Meanwhile, in Meggan's office, Robin's mouth opens in horror, having heard Max's horrible confession. "My God," she whispers to herself. "It's true. Max caused Adam's accident. He tried to kill Adam."
