Twin Peaks General Hospital

"The good news is that Simona finally showed up with a warrant for Bob's arrest," Daisy tells Tyler as they walk holding hands down one of the hallways of the hospital. She knows that he has been consumed with Bob's role in the fire at the boutique and brainwashing Felicia that they haven't seen that much of one another lately. This is why she stopped by the hospital to see Tyler and see what the latest is with him; after everything that has happened, she does care for him. He has told her he loves her, she knows she's not ready to say it back but that's neither here nor now. "It's only a matter of time before Bob wakes up and he can start to pay for his crimes against Felicia and your family."

"That's what my Dad and I are hoping for," Tyler replies to her, happy to see her. In his mind, it has been far too long since they had seen one another.

"It's really nice to see you and your Dad on the same page again," Daisy smiles over to him. "You two have been at odds for so long."

"Yea, we are both trying," Tyler looks back at her. "Have I told you that you're looking more beautiful than ever?"

Daisy blushes back to him. "I appreciate that," she tells him. "It's been a difficult couple of days."

"Why have they been difficult? What is going on? Anything I should be worried about?"

Daisy sighs back to him. "I haven't wanted to bother you with this considering everything that is going on here."

"I want to know, please tell me what's going on."

"It is Vinny," she admits back to him. "He told Andy that he wanted to get revenge on me for my affair with you."

"What? What is he planning on doing to you?"

Daisy shrugs her shoulders. "Nothing anymore? I went to see him and told him to drop the vendetta as it wasn't going to do anything but create more problems."

"And, he listened to you? That's surprising," Tyler admits to her.

"I don't know if I can take the credit for it entirely or if something Andy told him made change his mind, but he said he wasn't interested in it anymore. I can only take his word for it."

"I'm glad that he has come to his senses. The last thing we need is more grief."

Daisy pulls him into a hug. "I couldn't agree more."

"That surprisingly went better than I thought," Shane tells Eva and Donovan as he recalls how Victoria has seemingly agreed to meet them at the Calimo cabin so they can try to get to the bottom of everything that she is going through. When they came to him with the idea, Shane was sure that Victoria would try to object to the idea. He just hopes that the trip the cabin is productive and they can get to the truth.

"I know," Donovan agrees with him. "I was expecting Victoria to put up more of a fight about the idea of going to the cabin."

"Why would she do that?" Eva asks them. "I still think that Victoria is okay; this idea that her multiple personalities are back is insane."

"I hope you're right," Shane whispers back to her. "But we have to be sure. We have to ensure for the safety of everyone around her."

"I remember the last time Victoria went through this," Eva nods back to him. "She started Adam and Helen's apartment on fire, she killed Jackson and she almost killed Natasha at her wedding to Cory."

"And now, Barbara is dead and Craig almost died," Donovan looks at her uneasily. "Shane is right; we have to get to the bottom of this."

"But, we have to be careful," Shane warns them. "Because if Brandy, Victoria's alter is back, she is dangerous," he says as Eva and Donovan uneasily look at one another and gulp. "So, when we get to the cabin, can we all agree to our guards up?"

"I think that's the best way to go into this," Donovan slowly nods back to him as Eva looks back with concern.

The Calimo Cabin

Brandy slowly opens the door to the Calimo cabin and moves inside. She looks around the space and wonders when Shane, Donovan and Eva will arrive. She throws her bag down near the stairs and moves towards the fire place.

She throws a log onto the fire and then stands up to find the matches. She finds on the matel, then lights a match and puts it on the log, which slowly smokes up but soon catches on fire. She rubs her hands together, trying to warm them up before she turns back around.

"There," she whispers to herself. "At least this place will be warm by the time they get here. Then, they can ask me any questions they want to and I can cover my tracks."

She sighs heavily as she runs her hand through her long hair. "I will have to be the performance of my life," she tells herself. "They will all want answers and I will have to give them what they want. I have to make sure they believe every word I say, but all three of them ganging up on me … damnit, maybe this was a mistake."

"No, no," she continues to tell herself. "They would have thought something was really going on had I said no to attending this event. I'm just going to have to sell my story like never before."

She starts to move over to purse and she picks it up. "And if they won't listen," she whispers as she pulls a gun out of her purse. "Then I have this as a backup," she gets a wicked grin on her face.

Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Bob, is that really you? Are you really awake?" a stunned Kim looks at her husband, who has opened his eyes and mumbled her name. She almost can't believe that this is happening; a short time ago, she learned that Simona was granted a warrant for Bob's arrest as she believes the evidence proves that Bob started the fire at the boutique and then brainwashed Felicia into believing she started it. Kim was has been begging for Bob to wake up so she could find out how to make this mess go away, and now he has.

"I…aaaaammmm….awwwwwwwakeeeeeee," he looks back at her. "Youuuuuu looooookkkk beauttttiful."

Kim lets a tear fall down her cheek. "I have missed you so much," she tells him. "You have no idea how bad things are right now. I'm just so glad that you're okay."

"Kimmmmmmberlyyyyy," he replies to her. "Lisssten tooooo mmmmmmeeeee. I, forgggggiveee youuuuu for kissssssssinggggg Gregggg. Iiiii knowww youuu wwwwere trrrrrying tooooo hellllp."

Kim looks at him and covers her mouth as tears fall from her eyes. "You have no idea how I have longed to hear that," she tells him. "I would never do anything to hurt you, Bob. I love you more than you know."

He nods back to her. "Youuuuuu haaaavvvvee tooooo ttttttellllll everyyyyyyyone thattttttt I ssssssttttarttttted theeee fiiiiire. Toooo saveeeee us, Kimmmmmm. Plllleaaaaaseeeee."

"Why would I tell them that you started the fire? Bob, no, I can't do that! Simona, she will want to arrest you! There has to be another solution. Please, Bob, tell me what else can we do?" Kim asks him started by his next words to her, knowing that she can't let her husband take the blame for any of this, not when she is the one who actually started the fire at the boutique.

The Sugarbowl
"I'm glad that I ran into you tonight," Max smiles as he sits across from Paige in the back booth of the coffeehouse. He recalls how he was waiting, alone, for an update from Abby on her plan to seduce Andrew when Paige showed up. They have been together ever since and they even shared a hug earlier. Max is thrilled with his one on one time with the girl that he has a huge crush on; the fact that they hugged is even better. He just hopes that he gets a message from Abby soon that their plan is working and that he can take Paige to Andrew's to catch him with Abby.

"Yea, me too," Paige nods back to him. "It is nice to catch up with you just one on one. Whenever we are together, usually we are with our friends."

"I couldn't agree more," he replies to her. "It is nice to have you all to myself."

Paige blushes back to him. "So, when you are going to get a girlfriend?"

Max uneasily chuckles back to her. "That's funny you say that," he looks back at her with lust in his eyes. "I just don't think girls are into me."

"Why wouldn't they be?" Paige asks him back. "You're smart, caring and handsome."

"You really think so?"

"Of course I do," Paige tells him. "You should think that too."

"I guess I don't have a lot of self-confidence," he admits to her. "Hearing you say that, it really means a lot to me."

"I'm just being honest. And, I'm your friend. I'll always be here for you," Paige looks at him.

"Thanks Paige," he smiles back to her. "I hope you know that I'm always there for you too."

Andrew's Apartment

"So, you think you'll apply for school tomorrow?" Andrew asks Abby as they sit next to one another on the sofa. He was surprised when she showed up on his doorstep tonight but is glad that she is there now as she has been more honest with him than ever before. It is a different side to Abby that he is seeing tonight. And, the fact that she wants to go back to school to do something with her life is a definite step in the right direction.

"Yea, I think so," Abby admits to him. "After talking it out with you, I realize that I do need direction in my life. School would do that for me. I can't thank you enough for listening to me."

"Hey, that's what friends are for, right?" Andrew looks back at her. "And, you know, it goes both ways. It's like I told you, I've been thinking about my future too. You've definitely planted a bug in my head about school."

"Ohmygawd, really?" Abby grabs his hand. "What if we are in the same classes together?"

Andrew chuckles back to her. "Let's not get ahead of ourselves; we both still have to apply."

"Yea, but the idea is really awesome, don't you think?" Abby continues to look at him. Suddenly she jumps up from the sofa. "I love this song playing, come on, come dance with me?"

Andrew uneasily looks back at her as Abby reaches for his hand. He slowly takes it and stands up. Abby puts her arms around his neck and slowly starts to dance with him.

"You're a good dancer," she looks into his eyes.

Andrew gulps as he feels her waist in his hands. "Thanks, and, uh, so are you."

The Pampa Grill

Daisy sits at the bar with a glass of red wine in front of her. She can't stop thinking about her conversation with Tyler; she hopes that Simona is finally able to make an arrest so he can start moving beyond what happened to Felicia. And, of course, she's thinking about Vinny and his revenge claim. She hopes that he can really let that go.

"I'm glad I ran into you," a voice calls out causing Daisy to turn around in the bar stool.

"Vinny," she gasps surprised that he wanted to see her. Their last conversations have not been pleasant, to say the least. "What is going on?"

"I have news for you and really wanted you to hear it from me."

"Okay? What news? You're okay, I hope," she replies to him.

"I'm fine," he says as he sits next to her. "I got a phone call the other day and learned that Brett, my brother, was getting out of jail on parole."

"Wow," a stunned Daisy says back to him. "I could have sworn he was going to spend the rest of his life in jail for everything he did to you."

"So did I," he tells her. "So, imagine my surprise when he showed up on my doorstep."

"You're kidding?"

"I wish I was," Vinny continues to tell her. "Look, I only tell you this because he said he was going to stay at the mansion on the outskirts of Twin Peaks until he got back on his feet. I wanted you to know in case he tried to contact you, or anyone in your family."

"I appreciate the heads up," she replies to him. "I'll let you know if I do hear from him. And, if you need anything."

Vinny uneasily smiles back to her. "Yea, thanks."

Before she can say anything, her cell phone pings with a new text message. She looks at the phone and sees a message from Tyler. "Thanks for the visit, love you."

Vinny can't help but see the message and feels his blood boil. "By the way," he tells her. "I got news that our divorce was finalized. Thank you for not contesting."

Daisy looks back at him. "Vinny …"

"That's all I have to say," he stands up. "Enjoy the rest of your night."

Vinny quickly walks away from her, his heart still racing. He can't believe that they were having a seemingly nice conversation and then Tyler had to interrupt that too. "No," he says as he gets outside. "They have to pay. They have too."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

"This is unbelievable!" Natasha shrieks at Simona and Dominick as they have just finished telling her and Robbie that they have a warrant for Bob's arrest. Natasha and Robbie haven't been away from the hospital for that long; for all of this to have happened since then is crazy in their minds, especially since they blame Kim, not Bob, for everything that has happened. "Do you know or care that my father is on his deathbed right now?"

"The doctors have hope that he will make a full recovery," Simona replies to her. "And when he does wake up, he will have to face the consequences of his actions."

"You have no proof," Robbie tells her. "This case will get thrown out of court so fast your head will spin. And then, detective, I'll have your badge for harassing a man who is gravely ill."

"You and your family can make all the threats you want," Dominick defends Simona. "The fact of the matter is, Bob will pay for starting that fire and for putting Felicia through hell."

Robbie uneasily chuckles back to him. "Our family makes threats? How many threats did you make to get this bogus warrant for my Dad's arrest? Yea, I thought so. Do us all a favor and shut the fuck up, Dominick."

"Hey, this fighting won't solve anything!" Simona yells at everyone.

"Easy for you to say," Natasha growls at her. "You've already taken sides in this feud."

"Once your father wakes up," Simona replies to her. "We can get all the answers we need. We just need Bob to wake up now."

***

Inside Bob's hospital room, Kim moves up next to her husband and grabs his hand. "Bob, you have to listen to me, darling," she says as a tear falls down her cheek. "You can't confess, they will arrest you! You have to believe me when I tell you that. There has to be another way out of this."

Bob slowly shakes his head. "Kiiiimberlllly," he gasps for some more air. "I'm…I'm nooooot welllll, I keeeep seeingggg…"

"You keep seeing someone? Who? Who has been visiting you without my permission?"

"Sofffffffiaaaa," he whispers back to her as Kim's mouth opens in shock. "Sofiaaaaaaa wantsssss mmmmmmmmme to beeeeee wittttttth herrrrrrr againnnnn."

"No," Kim gasps back to him. "Please, darling, fight through this. You can't leave me, not yet." She rests her head on his chest as she sobs a little. She lifts her head and let's more tears fall from her eyes as she realizes that Bob has slipped back into his coma.

"Don't you leave me for Sofia," she pleads with him, stunned that he is seeing his dead wife. "Bob, you can fight through this. Please, I'm begging you, Bob."
