Andrew's Apartment

Paige feels her stomach turn into a million knots at the sight in front of her: Abby, who is only wearing her bra and a pair of jeans, is standing in Andrew's arms and they are kissing one another in the living room of his apartment. She can't believe what is seeing; she can't make sense of any of it since the last time she was with Andrew, they were making love to one another. How now is he kissing another woman, and Abby no less?. She and Max were together at the coffeehouse and suddenly, he wanted to also hang out with Andrew so they rushed over only to see him in a lip lock with Abby. She suddenly feels like she's going to be sick.

Paige turns back and rushes away from the door. Max slowly closes the door behind her and races after her. "Paige, hey, wait up," he rushes over to her, as she opens the elevator door and gets into it. He just barely catches the elevator and moves inside to see her. "Are you okay?"

"What do you think?" she asks him as tears fill her big brown eyes. "Andrew and Abby? How…when? I don't understand any of this?"

"Neither do I," Max lies to her as he pulls her into a hug. "But, you won't go through this alone. I promise you that."

Back inside the apartment, the kiss lingers for a moment longer before Andrew exits the embrace. "What in the hell do you think you're doing?" he asks her, stunned that she kissed him that way.

"I'm…I'm sorry," she moves back from him, trying to cover her tracks. She's secretly upset that he isn't kissing her again. "I thought…"

"I don't know what you thought but I'm with Paige, you know that! We just finished talking about it."

"I know!" Abby tells him. "I guess I was just caught up in the moment. The way you were looking at me…I don't know what came over me."

"Well, Abby, it can't happen again," Andrew advises her. "Do you understand me? You can't kiss me like that ever again."

The Calimo Cabin

"Brandy, please, you don't mean that," Shane tells Brandy, who has advised everyone in the room that she is going to kill them because they know how that she is back in control of Victoria's brain. He is desperately trying to think of something that will convince Brandy to put the gun down so himself, Eva, Donovan and Brett will not get hurt by the deranged woman in front of them. "There are other ways out of this other than you killing four people."

Brandy chuckles back to him. "You think so, huh? From where I'm standing, there are no other options! I won't go back into therapy! I won't lose control and be lost forever again."

"Darling, listen to me," Eva moves closer to her. "I know that you can hear me, you just came out a few minutes ago. Victoria, I'm begging you, fight through this! You're strong enough to make it through the other side. Please, Victoria!"

"Shut up!" Brandy yells back to her as she points the gun at her. "Victoria is gone and is never coming back, the sooner you all accept that the better we'll all be!"

"Now," she continues to point the gun at Eva. "Who should I kill first? I think you," she moves the gun towards Brett. "You deserve to die the most after everything you put me through."

"I…I…You're right," Brett stutters, as he uneasily looks over at Victoria's concerned family. "If you really want to kill me, then kill me. I can tell that you aren't going to change your mind, Brandy. So, shoot me. Go ahead. Kill me."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

"What's happening?" Kim cries as Bob lays in his bed in the hospital and he continues to not report a heartbeat. "Somebody! Somebody help me!" she screams as she turns and looks at the doorway, desperately searching for someone to help her and Bob. She can't believe that Bob has no heartbeat; he can't die, not now. Not after everything they have been through together.

Suddenly, a ton of nurses and doctors rush into the room and approach Bob. "Mrs. Calimo, please step outside. We have to try to save your husband."

Kim covers her mouth in absolutely shock as she slowly walks backwards towards the door. Robbie and Natasha appear behind her. "What is going on?" Robbie asks her, realizing that something is very wrong with his father.

Kim turns to him and hugs him immediately. "I wish I knew," she tells him in his ear. "His heart, it stopped. They have to make him have a heart beat again, right? The doctors, they will save him, right?"

"Oh God, this is a nightmare," Natasha covers her mouth as a tear falls down her cheek. The three of them peer into the room through the small windows on the doors and watch the medical staff try to save Bob.

"What's taking so long?" Robbie runs his hands through his hair. He can't believe that this is happening to him and his family; after everything they've been through, this can't be the end for his father. It just can't be.

"All I know is that this is all Dominick's fault," Kim replies to them. "If anything happens to Bob, it's on him."

"Actually, this all started with you," Natasha quips back to her. "You're the cause of all of this!"

"Shut up Natasha," Kim lashes out at her. "I can't deal with this right now!"

"Hey, guys, come on," Robbie tries to be the referee. "We have to stay focused and united for Dad's sake."

"I just wish I knew what was happening," Kim tells him, her heart skipping a beat every time she has no idea what is happening with Bob.. "I need to know my husband is alive and is going to make a full recovery."

The Park

"Are you feeling any better now that you have had some air?" Max asks Paige as they slowly walk through the park, having left Andrew's apartment. Max can see the hurt on her face; a part of him feels bad for putting her through that, but he also realizes that this was the only way he could have a chance to be with her.

"No," she tries to fight her tears in her eyes. She knows that she and Max have grown closer but the last thing she wants is for him to see her cry. She just can't believe that she was a fool and believed everything Andrew told her. "Look, Max, thanks for getting me out of there, but I just want to be alone."

"Are you sure?" Max asks her as he looks into her eyes. "The last thing you should be right now is alone. You are probably thinking a million different things."

"I need time to figure this out," she admits to him. "I'm just going to go home and crawl into bed."

"I can walk you home…?"

"No, I can manage," she replies to him quickly. "Thanks for everything, but right now, I just need to be alone."

"Okay, let me know if you need anything from me at all," Max tells her, as she quickly walks away from him. He stands in the park as a light snow fall starts to sprinkle from the sky. He sighs heavily as he realizes that this entire plan was put into motion so Paige would lean on him more and currently, she is doing the exact opposite.

Andrew's Apartment

"Here's your shirt," Andrew tells Abby as he passes her the dry t-shirt she had on earlier.

"Thanks," Abby puts the shirt back on and then looks over at him. "Look, I'm sorry about the kiss, okay? I know now that it crossed a line. I just, I just got caught up in the moment. You know, only being in my bra, you checking me out. I know it crossed a line, and it won't happen again."

"Thanks for saying that," Andrew nods back to her. "You and I, we made inroads tonight to be good friends, but I need you that I'm with Paige and I really like her. I won't do anything to hurt her, okay?"

Abby hears the words and feels a knife go through her chest. "Yea, of course," she manages to say as she feels her eyes swell with water. "Well, I've made a big enough ass of myself tonight. I should get going."

"You didn't make an ass of yourself," he tells her. "But I'm glad we are on the same page now."

"Uh yea, me too," Abby picks up her jacket. "I'll see you around."

The Calimo Cabin

"Go on Brandy," Brett continues to goat the woman with the gun. He just hopes that his plan to scare into actually pulling the trigger will work; a lot of people think they can be violent but when push comes to shove they can't be. "Let's see if you're more than talk. Shoot me, kill me if that what's what you want to do!"

Brandy chuckles back to him as she aims the gun at him. "I'm definitely more than just talk," she sneers at him. "You don't know the half of what I'm capable of."

"What are you talking about?" Donovan asks his sister. "What else have you done?"

"Never mind!" Brandy snaps at him. "It's killing time!"

Brandy points the fun at Brett and pulls the trigger! A bullet fails to leave the weapon, however. "What the hell is going on here?" she asks herself, worried that the bullet got jammed in the weapon. "Damnit, the bullet must have been lodged inside."

She turns the gun to look at the barrel and then presses the trigger again. This time the bullet leaves the weapon! It immediately hits Brandy and she groans out in horror. Eva, Donovan, Brett and Shane look on in shock at the sight of the woman who has just shot herself by accident.

"Victoria!" Eva shrieks at the sight of her daughter's body laying in a pool of blood. "Oh my God, how can this be happening! Shane, please help her! Help my daughter!"

Twin Peaks General Hospital

Robbie, Natasha and Kim pace back and forth outside Bob's hospital room, waiting for some kind of news about Bob's condition as they have no idea why it is taking so long to make sure his heart is beating again. The longer this goes on, however, the worse the outcome must be, they think but they don't say out loud.

Robbie looks over and sees Dominick and Tyler approaching the room and immediately feels his blood start to boil. The last thing they all need is to have more fighting with the Robertson's pressing for Bob's arrest. "This isn't the time," he grits his teeth back to them. "My Dad could be dying, you two need to get lost!"

"They haven't revived Bob yet?" Tyler asks, not paying attention to what Robbie just told them.

Suddenly, a doctor opens the door to Bob's hospital room and walks out. Kim, Natasha and Robbie approach him quickly.

"Doctor, what's happened? How is my husband?" Kim asks him in a panic. "Please tell me he will be okay."

"We did everything we could," the doctor replies to them. "But we couldn't save your husband."

"I…I don't understand," Natasha's lower lip quivers. "What are you saying?"

"I'm terribly sorry," the doctor tells the family. "But Bob has died."

"No," Kim screams out as tears flood form her eyes. "No, Bob can't be dead! He can't be," she says as she collapses on the floor in pain and tears

Robbie immediately turns and pulls Natasha into a hug, as tears fall from both of their eyes and Dominick and Tyler look at one another as the news of Bob's death sends everyone into a state of complete and utter shock.
