Theme song: "Room for 2" Dua Lipa
on One Day at a Time
Twin Peaks General Hospital
Kim stands up from the chair outside of Bob's hospital room and stretches her legs and arms out. She then peers into her husband's hospital room and sees that he is still in his coma. She feels her heart weight down at the sight of him; he has been in a coma for weeks following his car accident with Helen. She doesn't know how long this can go on for; she knows that Simona is getting pressed by Dominick and Tyler to issue a warrant for Bob's arrest for his role in the fire at the boutique; little do they know, she is the one who started the fire. And, Robbie and Natasha are blaming Kim for everything that has happened to their father. She desperately needs Bob to wake up so he can make everything better. Kim has always believed that Bob makes everything okay.
"Please wake up," she whispers to herself. She turns her head and sees Simona, Dominick and Tyler all quickly approaching her. She gulps heavily wondering what they are doing as they appear to be on a mission. "Simona, what's going on?"
"We have news for you," Simona tells Kim as she reaches her.
Dominick folds his arms across his chest. "It's the day we've all been waiting for," he glares at Kim. "Bob is finally going to pay for what he has done."
"What do you mean?" Kim looks back at Simona with a confused look on her face.
"Mrs. Calimo," Simona begins. "I've been granted an arrest warrant for your husband."
"What?" Kim shrieks back to her. "My husband is in that room fighting for his life!" Kim points her finger to the hospital room. "How dare you come here and tell me this when we don't even know if my husband is going to survive!"
"I'm sorry that this is upsetting to you," Simona replies to her. "But the evidence supports the idea that Bob started the fire at the boutique and then covered it up by brain washing Felicia Robertson."
Kim looks over at Dominick and Tyler with anger in her eyes. "I would expect this from you," she spits at Dominick. "But you, Tyler? Really? After everything we went through, I would have thought you would have compassion."
"I have no compassion for a man that has hurt my mother for so long," Tyler replies to her. "It's time Bob pay the price for what he has done."
"Bob will do no such thing," Kim looks at all of them. "You will all stay away from my husband, do you hear me? You will not jeopardize his health with this ridiculous witch hunt!"
"Mrs. Calimo "
"Save it, detective," Kim cuts her off. "I'm going to get a restraining order on all three of you! Do you hear me? You will not do this while my husband is comatose!"
Before Simona can say anything else, Kim storms into Bob's hospital room and slams the door behind her. She leans up against the door and lets a tear fall from her eye, as she looks her at Bob.
"God, help us," she whispers to Bob. "God help us all."
"I certainly hope you haven't felt like you've been put in the middle of anything," Vinny tells Andrew as he sits across from his nephew in the back booth of the coffeehouse. Vinny hasn't seen Andrew in a while, and he has felt bad about that, so he invited him to coffee today. Plus, he has news that he wants to share with him.
"Nah," Andrew takes a sip of his coffee. "I haven't seen Daisy in a long time. Don't worry about me, how are you holding up? I can't imagine the last few months have been easy on you since you found out your wife was having an affair."
"It hasn't been easy," Vinny admits to him. "But, I'm trying to focus on myself."
Andrew slowly nods back to him. "That's cool. Most guys would want to get payback or something."
Vinny uneasily chuckles back to him. "It has crossed my mind," he replies to him. "I just haven't thought of anything to do. Not sure it's really worth my time."
"It probably isn't," Andrew agrees with him. "But no one would blame you if you did, at least from where I'm sitting."
"I appreciate that," Vinny smiles to him. "Listen man, I actually have some other news for you."
Andrew arches his eyebrow. "What's up?"
"I had a phone call a couple weeks ago," Vinny begins to tell him. "It appears my brother, your uncle, is getting out of jail. Brett Victors is a free man."
"I've only heard stories about Brett, but I have never met him personally," Andrew tells him.
"I don't know if he will be in Twin Peaks or not," Vinny says. "Just keep your eyes open with him. Brett helped keep me locked up for years, he could be a loose cannon."
"I wish this cold spell would end already," Robin tells Nicholas as they sit at the window seat together. "I'm ready for spring to be here!"
"You and me both," Nicholas smiles back to her. "The church can be so drafty. I'm glad we got the grant for the renovations. I'm thinking of throwing a gala or something once the renovations are completed."
"I think that's a great idea," Robin nods back to him. "Do you think the renovations will be done relatively quickly?"
"I'm not sure, why do you ask?"
Robin gushes back to him. "Adam and I we are going to get married," she reveals to him. "I went to see him the other day and told him that a wedding would help to start put some happiness back into his and Dawn's world and he agreed."
"That is wonderful news," Nicholas hugs his sister. "You must be thrilled."
"I am, but we also need a venue. Hence asking about the church."
"Ah," Nicholas nods back to her. "Well, I can definitely request the contracted expedite some of the renovations because I would love for you and Adam to marry at St. Joseph's."
"That would mean the
world to me," Robin smiles back to him. "Thank you."
The Richardson Estate;
Meggan & Lukas' Home
"So, Craig got home okay?" Andy asks Lukas as they sit in the living room of Lukas' large mansion catching up with one another. Andy knew that Craig was getting discharged from the hospital but he was with Nicholas when Craig left the hospital.
"Yup, I took him to his apartment myself," Lukas replies to him. "He was thrilled to get out that place."
"I can only imagine," Andy tells him. "I'm glad that it all worked out. I'm still sort of in shock that he doesn't have HIV. All those months of him getting treatment."
Lukas sighs. "He's pissed about it, and I don't blame him. He wants Victoria's medical license revoked."
"If it was intentional, then I agree. But maybe there is another explanation?"
Lukas shrugs back to him. "Shane is looking into it. But if it was Victoria, she needs to pay. Anyways, what's going on with you? You seem to be I don't know, happier lately? Are you seeing a guy finally?"
Andy uneasily chuckles back to him. "That sly grin on your face tells me that I'm right, who is he?" Lukas asks him, curious about Andy's love life. In Lukas' mind it has been long enough since Reese passed away; it is time Andy had some love in his life.
"Easy," Andy puts his hands up. "I will admit to you that I'm very attracted to a guy, but nothing will ever happen. It can't."
"Nonsense," Lukas replies to him. "If you're into him and he's into you, what's the problem?"
"It's complicated," Andy tells him. "I would like nothing more than for something to happen but it is impossible. So, I have to move on. I'm just not sure how to do that."
"Thank you for coming sweetheart," Eva purses her lips together as Donovan scurries into her house that she shares with Dominick. Donovan takes his winter coat off and drops it on the sofa.
"No worries Mom," Donovan looks at her when she moves into the living room. "You made it sound urgent. I'm guessing this is about Victoria?"
"It is," Eva nods back to him. "I spoke to Shane again, and he continues to think that something is off with your sister. And when Felicia learned that Barbara was dead, she was insistent that Victoria had something to do with it."
"Shane has told me the same thing. And Felicia was there in Raven's Meadow, maybe she knows something we don't?"
"I had coffee with Victoria the other day and she seemed fine," Eva replies to him. "I'm not sure what else we can do."
"To be honest Mom, we have to get to the bottom of this. I was with Craig Benton the other day; he got released from the hospital and he doesn't have HIV. That means that Victoria, his doctor, told him he was ill when he wasn't. That is a really big mistake to make."
"Yes, yes," Eva waves her hand in the air. "Victoria is claiming that it was an error at the lab."
"But what if it wasn't?" Donovan asks her.
"What are you suggesting?" Eva asks him back quickly. "Are you implying that Victoria's alter egos are back?"
Donovan shrugs his shoulders. "I don't know what to think," he admits to her. "All I know is that Craig was given a hell of a lot of drugs that he didn't need under Victoria's care. Barbara Mills is dead and she was also under Victoria's care. I think we need to get to the bottom of this before anyone else could get hurt."
"Okay, I agree with you, we do need more answers."
"What do you think we should do?"
"I think we need to hold an intervention," Eva tells him. "But I think we need to get away from Twin Peaks. Let's go somewhere where Victoria is unable to run and hide from our questions."
"I have an idea," Donovan nods back to her. "The Calimo cabin. Let's go there to figure out what is going on with Victoria."
The Pampa Grill
Brandy sits at the back table alone with a glass of red wine in front of her. She looks at her phone before she takes a sip of her drink, her mind racing about the conversation she had with a buried alive Helen recently where Helen told her that her water supply was low.
Brandy did stop by the graveyard but the yard crew was still pruning some trees around Helen's gravesite, so she hasn't had time to fill the water yet.
"But that has to be on the top of my things to do," she whispers to herself. "The last thing I need is for her to actually die in that coffin. I can't let someone else pass away," she then thinks about Barbara laying on the hospital bed in Raven's Meadow, having died from the excessive electroshock therapy.
She shakes her head quickly. "I can't think about that," she tells herself. "The old hag got what she deserved."
"I was wondering when I would run into you," Craig announces as he approaches her table.
"Craig, you're out of the hospital," Brandy forces herself to act concerned for the guy in front of her. "I'm really happy to see that."
"Are you?" Craig asks her. "Because, from where I stand, the reason I was in the hospital in the first place is because of you!"
"I heard that there has been confusion with your diagnosis. The only thing I can tell you is that there must be have been a mix up at the lab with your test results."
"You better hope that's what it was," Craig glares at her. "Because, if not, I will have your medical license revoked."
"You will do no such thing!"
"Just watch me Victoria," Craig tells her. "I won't let you get away with this. And if you think I will, you are wrong. Dead wrong."
At another table, Daisy sits across from Trenyce as they share some wine together. "I can't believe that you confronted Vinny after talking to Andy," Trenyce tells her Aunt, having heard Daisy tell her she spoke to Vinny about his idea of getting revenge on her.
"Why wouldn't I?" Daisy asks her back. "Andy told me that Vinny was talking about getting revenge on me for my affair. The last thing that any of us need is for Vinny to lash out. We've all been through enough, don't you think?"
"I do think that, yes," Trenyce agrees with her. "I'm just sure that Vinny wouldn't have been very pleased to see you trying to tell him what to think or do. After all, he really is the innocent party in this."
"Ha," Daisy almost chokes on her wine. "In every relationship, there are two parties. I'm not saying that I'm innocent, but Vinny did his fair share of things to me in our marriage."
"It's not about who did what to whom," Trenyce tells her. "But you are right, the time for revenge has passed. There's no need for that."
"I just hope that Vinny heard me when I told him that," Daisy takes a sip of her wine. "Because I agree with you, revenge would just cause more pain for everyone."
The Victors Mansion
Vinny finishes pouring himself a brandy when he hears the doorbell ring. He sets his glass down on the coffee table and quickly walks to the front door. He opens the door and is shocked to see Brett standing on the other side. He just told Andrew that Brett was getting out of jail; he didn't expect to see his brother show up on his doorstep.
"Vinny, hi," Brett takes his hands out of his pockets. "Can I come in?"
"Only for a moment," Vinny uneasily tells his twin brother, still unsure if he can trust Brett. Afterall, Brett did help Dave keep him locked up for years. "I heard that you were getting out of jail. I wasn't expecting you to come to Twin Peaks."
"I had to see you," Brett turns to look at his brother once they are in the living room together. "I know I'm probably the last person you wanted to see, but I wanted to let you know something."
"And what is that?"
"I've changed Vinny," Brett times to him. "Prison did change me. I'm not the same guy I was all those years ago. I don't expect you to believe me but I wanted you to hear it from me."
"Okay," Vinny uneasily tells him. "Where are you going to go?"
"I was thinking of going to the old mansion for a short time, the one just outside of Twin Peaks."
"The one where you held me hostage," Vinny quips back to him.
"I'll only be there until I get on my feet and get my life together," Brett replies to him. "Like I said, I know you probably hate me Vinny, but I have changed. And if you ever want to have a relationship, I'd be okay with that."
"That won't be happening," Vinny tells him. "Thanks for stopping by, but you can get out of my house now."
Brett slowly nods back to him. "Take care of yourself."
Vinny waits until he hears the front door close again before he picks up his brandy and takes a healthy sip of it, rattled to see his identical twin brother a free man.
Twin Peaks General Hospital
Kim slowly walks up to Bob's hospital bed. She wipes her tears before she sits next to him. She can't believe that Simona is outside wanting to arrest Bob for something he didn't even do. The nightmare she has been living just got worse; much worse.
"You have to wake up Bob," she tells him. "You have to tell me what to do. I don't know what to do anymore."
Kim puts her head next to Bob's as more tears start to flow from her eyes. As she weeps, Bob's eyes slowly start to open.
"Kkkkkimmmmberlllllllllly," Bob mutters slowly as Kim's body shoots up.
"Bob? Oh my God, Bob," Kim smiles through her tears. "You're awake, you're really awake!"
