St. Joseph's Church
Despite a light snow fall sprinkling from the sky, the sun is shining
down on the church which is the setting for Adam and Robin's wedding.
Inside the church, light pink roses in gold vases surround the foyer and
alter, which are the couples theme colours. Some of the sunlight comes
through the stained glass windows and sparkles against the vases, which
creates a magical atmosphere for the upcoming wedding.
Inside the bridal room, Robin sits in front of the large mirror and finished
applying a light pink shade of lip stick. She looks at herself and almost
can't believe that the day is here. After everything she and Adam have
been through, it seems surreal; especially during the last few months
with Helen and Barbara passing away.
"Can I get you anything at all?" Leah asks her sister, who is
already in her bridesmaid dress. She is helping Robin get ready for the
"I think I'm good," Robin replies to her as she turns and looks
at her sister. "I wish Dawn was in here getting ready with us, but
I understand why she needs some space still."
"It was commendable that she agreed to stand up for you," Leah
tells her. "She just lost her Mom and Grandma, she must still be
"I know," Robin nods back to her. "I was apprehensive about
asking her, but Adam really wanted both of his children standing up there
with him. I just hope I haven't pushed Dawn into doing something she didn't
want to do."
"I think Dawn would have said no if she wasn't feeling up to it,"
Leah tells her. "But it is nice that you care. I'm sure both she
and Adam appreciate that a lot."
"I hope so," Robin replies to her. "I just want this day
to be perfect. I don't want anything to ruin my wedding day."
"Nothing will ruin your day," Leah grabs her hand. "You
and Adam love each other, what could go wrong, right?"
In the other room, Adam looks into the mirror as he prepares to put his
black bowtie on. He takes a deep breath before he turns to see who is
joining him in the room. Max appears to his father, already wearing his
"Don't you clean up well?" Adam grins to his son, thrilled that
Max has agreed to stand up for him. Adam wasn't sure that he'd ever be
close with his son, after all the trouble they had when it was first revealed
that they were father and son, and Max's past infatuation with Robin.
Max chuckles back to him. "Thanks Dad," he tells him. "Do
you need help with that bowtie?"
"I think I can manage," Adam replies to him. "In case I
haven't said it, I really appreciate you being here with me today."
Max nods back to him. "I wouldn't want to be anywhere else,"
Max tells him. "I meant it when I said that I was happy we were able
to get to this place in our relationship. I'm proud of what you and Robin
have accomplished together."
Adam looks to Max and pulls him into a hug. "Thanks kid," he
tells him. "For what it's worth, I'm pretty proud of you as well."
They exit their embrace when they hear the door open. Adam looks over
Max's shoulder and sees Dawn walk into the room.
"Dawn, wow, you look great," Adam smiles to his daughter.
"Thanks Dad," she replies to him.
"I'm surprised that you're not with Robin helping her get ready,"
Max tells his sister. "What brings you here?"
"I need to talk to Dad," Dawn replies to him. "Do you mind
if we have a conversation alone?"
Adam uneasily looks at Max and then back to Dawn. "Of course. What's
"It's about the wedding," Dawn tells him as Max leaves the room.
"We have to talk about you marrying Robin."
"I'm glad that you were able to tear yourself away from the hospital
to come with me to the wedding," Lukas tells Donovan as they walk
through the church until they find the pew that they want to sit in. Lukas
knows that his lover has been at the hospital almost non-stop since Victoria's
alter ego accidently shot herself and has now fallen into a coma following
"Me too," Donovan replies to him. "To be honest, getting
away from the chaos is nice. There's nothing better than seeing two people
in love with one another vow to spend the rest of their lives together."
"Isn't that the truth?" Lukas sits next to Donovan. "Is
there any word on Victoria, by the way?"
Donovan shakes his head back to him. "She's still in a coma,"
Donovan tells him. "Shane doesn't know if or when she will wake up.
My Mom is a mess because of this."
"I am sorry that this is happening to you and your family."
"Thank you," Donovan replies to him. "But why do I get
the feeling you have more to say on the subject?"
Lukas sighs back to him. "This isn't the time or place to discuss
"Why not? We have some time before the ceremony begins. Why not just
tell me what you're thinking? I already know that you want my sister to
pay for what she's done."
"I do want her to pay for the damage that she has caused," Lukas
admits to him. "She's caused so much pain, it's unforgivable. I guess
a part of me thinks that this shooting and coma is karma."
Donovan looks back at him in shock. "I told you we shouldn't talk
about this now," Lukas sees how appalled Donovan is. "We should
just agree to disagree?"
"Yea," Donovan spits back to him. "That's one way to look
"Darling, I am glad that you agreed to leave the hospital and join
me today," Dominick tells his wife as they slowly walk through the
garden as they still have time before the ceremony to begin. Despite the
light snow fall, Eva is enjoying having some fresh air as she has been
at the hospital for far too long dealing with Victoria.
"I needed the break from everything that is going on there,"
she admits to him as she stops and looks into his eyes. "I'm just
praying that by the time I get back, Victoria has come out of her coma."
"I can't tell you how sorry I am that all of this has happened,"
Dominick tells her. "If I can help with anything at all, you know
I'm here for you."
"Unless you can make a miracle happen, I'm afraid I just need your
"Do you want me to call in some favors to get some specialists to
come see her?"
Eva shakes her head no. "Shane is one of the best doctors in the
country," she tells him. "I trust him that he has done everything
possible to save Victoria. How is Felicia taking all of this news?"
"She seemed to handle the news of Bob's death well," he admits
to her. "But, when I told her about Victoria, she still maintained
that she thought Victoria had something to do with Barbara's death."
Eva covers her mouth as tears fill her eyes. "Now that I know that
Brandy was in control of Victoria's mind and body, anything is possible.
Donovan and I are actually worried about who else Brandy could have hurt."
Dominick arches his eyebrow. "That's why we have to make sure Victoria
wakes up," he pulls her into a hug. "We have to know what else
she has done, before it's too late."
"Shane is looking into just that," Eva nods back to him. "I'm
just scared about what he will find."
Andrew scans the foyer of the church hoping to see Paige. He hasn't heard
from his girlfriend in a couple of days, which is not like her. He has
left her a couple of voicemails and countless text messages but she hasn't
replied to any of them. He knows that she is busy with the wedding preparation
but it isn't like her to at least not reach out to him. He isn't sure
what the deal is, but he is worried about her.
He looks over to the bridal room and sees Paige emerge. He quickly walks
up to her, unaware that Abby has spotted him and she moves over so she
can hear their conversation.
"Paige, hey," Andrew puts his hands his pockets. "I've
been trying to get a hold of you. What's up?"
Paige looks back at him and feels her eyes swell with water. She can't
help but recall when Max took her to Andrew's the other day and when they
opened the door, he was kissing Abby, who was only in her bra. Paige can't
believe that she has been played for a fool from Andrew; it was the last
thing she expected, but the only conclusion that she has come up with
is that Andrew has wanted to have his cake and eat it too.
"Yea, sorry, I've been busy helping with wedding planning,"
she can't even look him in the eye.
"So busy you couldn't text me? That isn't like you? What's going
"You have to ask?" she replies to him coldly. "Whatever,
I don't think we should see each other anymore, Andrew. It's over."
Abby gets a huge grin on her face at the conversation she is hearing.
"Wait, what? I don't get it? Why are you dumping me?"
"If you have to ask about that then you are the fool here, not me,"
Paige snaps back to him. At first she was devastated by what she saw,
but the more time that has passed the angrier she has become. How dare
he use her this way, she thinks to herself.
"You're not a fool? I've never said that to you."
"You didn't have too," Paige replies to him quickly. "Now,
if you'll excuse me, I have to grab something for my Aunt Robin."
Andrew remains dumbfounded when Paige moves away from quickly. He runs
his hand through his hair as he sighs. "What the hell just happened?"
he asks himself, as Abby bites her tongue so she doesn't squeal in delight.
"Are you nervous at all?" Andy asks Nicholas as they stand at
the front of the church. Nicholas looks out and sees more and more guests
coming into the church as they get closer to starting the ceremony.
Nicholas looks back at him and shakes his head. "Nervous no,"
he tells his friend. "I've done this so many times, it's like second
nature. But, I do tend to feel apprehension around making sure I do the
ceremony justice. The couple has gone through so much to get to this point;
I just want to make their day as special as possible."
Andy moves closer to him. "You have such a way with your words, Nicholas,"
Andy tells him. "There's no way that you won't make this special,
especially because Robin is your sister."
"And one of my best friends," Nicholas admits to him. "That's
why this has to go well. Nothing can go wrong."
"I love your dedication," Andy replies to him. "It just
shows the kind of guy you are."
Nicholas blushes back to him. "You're sweet, thank you."
"I'm honest," Andy looks him in the eye and feels his attraction
building to him, even though he knows that nothing can happen between
"Okay Dawn, you have
my attention," Adam tells his daughter as they sit next to one another
on a sofa in his room where he is getting ready for the wedding. "What
do you have to say about the wedding?"
Dawn sighs as she looks down and notices her hands are trembling a little.
"It's not really about the wedding, I guess," she admits to
him. "It's about Mom."
Adam puts his arm around his daughter. "I hope that losing your Mom
and Barbara is still raw, Dawn. It's like I told you weeks ago, I thought
this wedding would be a good thing for the family. A way to bring some
happiness back into our lives."
Dawn uneasily nods back to him. "Yea, I know that's what you said.
It's just that it's so soon after Mom and Grandma died. I wish we had
more time, you know? I just, I just missed them so much."
"I know you do kiddo," Adam pulls her into a hug. "And,
you're allowed to miss them. It's only natural, Dawn. But, I love Robin.
I want to marry her. Can you understand that?"
Dawn nods as a tear falls down her cheek. "I understand that,"
she admits to him. "This just feels like a betrayal to Mom, and I
don't know how I can get over that."
The Tower's; Floor Eight, Victoria's Condo
Shane slowly unlocks the front door to Victoria's condo and moves inside.
After he discussed with Eva and Donovan that he is scared that Brandy
may have hurt other people, they agreed to give him a key to her condo
so he could look around and see if he could uncover anything that would
indicate such. He is glad that Eva and Donovan agreed to this, but at
the same time, he has no idea what he is looking for. He just hopes that
he can find something, anything, that will let him know if Brandy has
hurt someone else.
He turns the lights on and looks around the living room. He sees nothing
out of the ordinary at first glance.
"What am I even looking for?" he asks himself as he drops the
key on the coffee table. He turns around and walks down the short hallway
into her bedroom, where he again turns on the light.
He looks around and still doesn't see anything that catches his eye. The
large bed, two end tables; everything is seemingly intact.
He slowly walks over to the closet and puts his hand to the handles. "Okay
Brandy, let's see what's behind the closed the doors," he whispers
as he opens the closet doors. He sees clothing on hangers and some folded
on the shelves. He bends down and sees a shoe rack; again nothing out
of the ordinary.
That's when he sees it; something in the far corner behind the shelving
unit. He reaches for it and grabs it. It appears to be a partial board;
he lifts it out of the closet and lays it on the bed to investigate what
he has found.
He gasps when he gets a proper look at it: it is a shrine of people who
have hurt Victoria or her loved ones. Shane sees a picture of Craig, Barbara,
Shane, Dave and Helen.
"Helen?" Shane asks out loud startled at the shrine. "What
did Victoria do to Helen?"
