The Tower's; Floor Eight; Victoria's Condo
Shane stands in the living room of Victoria's condo holding the walkie-talkie
to his ear. He really has no idea what is going on currently; he was given
a key to her condo from Eva and Donovan so he could look around to see
if he could uncover anything that would suggest that Brandy hurt other
people; they already know that she misdiagnosed Craig with HIV and that
she tried to kill Brett at the cabin. Shane then found a shrine in the
closet that has his, Dave's, Craig's, Barbara's and Helen's pictures on
it, which lead Shane to believe that Brandy may have had something to
do with Barbara's death at Raven's Meadow. Helen's picture was the surprise
and Shane was left wondering if Brandy hurt Helen. Of course, he then
recalled that Brandy was at the hospital when Helen was brought into the
ER last fall following her car accident with Bob.
When Shane returned to the living room, he was thinking out loud when
he then saw this device under Victoria's TV. He picked it up and realized
it was a walkie-talkie; he turned it on and could hear faint breathing,
but so far, no one has answered him back.
"I can hear you," he says into the device, still hearing some
faint breathing. "Hello, who is there?"
Inside the coffin, Helen's eyes barely open as she is suffering from severe
dehydration as she hasn't been able to drink water for a few days now
since her water ran out. She can hear Shane's voice calling out to her,
which is a surprise. She hasn't spoken to anyone but Brandy in months
"Who is there? Do you need help? I'm a doctor, I can help you."
"Sshhhannnneeee," Helen whispers as Shane's eyes open wider
"Who is this?" Shane asks, unable to make out the hoarse voice
on the other side.
"Heeelllllp me," she pleads with him. "Pllllease, help
Shane feels the blood drain from his face as he tries to connect all the
pieces as to what is happening.
"Where are you? How can I help you?" he asks her as he continues
to hear faint breathing.
"Cooooffffinnnnn," Helen mumbles back to him before she shuts
her eyes completely.
Back in the condo, Shane looks at the device in horror. "My God,"
he whispers to himself. "Hold on, I'll get help!"
St. Joseph's Church
Alone in the washroom of the church, Dawn looks at herself in the mirror.
Her eyes are red and she has bags under both eyelids. She has no idea
how she is going to look in the wedding pictures, but she knows that she
has to pull herself together. In a few minutes, her Dad's wedding to Robin
will begin and everyone will be watching her as she is standing up for
Robin. A part of her wishes that she hadn't agreed to stand up for Robin,
but she knows how much it means to Adam; and right now, that is the most
important thing for her. She just wants to get this day over with, however.
She opens her purse and pulls out the bottle of antidepressants that she
has been taking. She opens the bottle and pops three pills into her hand.
She puts them into her mouth and then turns the water on; she cups some
water into her hand and then drinks it up, swallowing the pills down with
"There," she says to herself as she wipes her mouth dry. "That
should get me through this ceremony."
"Dawn, hey, there you are," Cheresa says to her friend as she
opens the door to the washroom. "Are you okay?"
Dawn shoves the pill bottle back into her purse quickly and closes her
bag. She turns to Cheresa and forces a smile on her face. "I'm fine.
I just needed a moment to myself. I'm guessing that we are almost ready
for the ceremony?"
Cheresa slowly nods back to her, wondering if Dawn is keeping something
from her. She can't put her finger on it, but she gets the feeling that
something more is going on with Dawn.
"They asked me to try to find you, so I'm glad I did."
"Yes you did," Dawn moves closer to her. "Come on, let's
get this over with."
"You haven't really been yourself all day," Leah tells Paige
as they sit next to one another in the bridal room as they wait for Robin
to emerge in her wedding dress. They have been helping Robin get ready
for the big day but now they have a couple of moments alone with each
other. "Are you going to tell me what's wrong?"
Paige sighs back to her Mom. "Do you remember a couple of weeks ago
when I told you that I was seeing a guy?"
"Of course," Leah replies to her. "You were a tad secretive,
but I understand that you don't want me to know every detail."
Paige looks at her Mom with tears in her eyes. "Hey baby, what is
it? What's wrong?"
"He cheated on me," a single tear falls down Paige's cheek and
she immediately wipes it away. "God, I feel so stupid."
"You're not stupid," Leah pulls her into a hug. "He obviously
doesn't deserve you if that's how he's going to treat you."
"That's what I told him when I dumped him," Paige reveals to
her. "I just wish
"That I hadn't slept with him," Paige admits to her mom. "Cause
I can't get that back and I wouldn't have slept with him had I know this
is what he was going to do to me."
"You know," Leah grabs her hand. "Making love to someone
is a part of growing up. You feel all these emotions and feelings and
things happen. I'm proud of you for realizing that you don't have to do
that if you are unsure about where things stand in your relationship.
I know it won't take any of your pain away, but hopefully one day this
can be a learning experience for you."
"I just wish I understood why," Paige bites her lower lip to
her mom. "Why would he do this to me? Why would Andrew hurt me like
"Andrew?" Leah gasps realizing who the guy is. "Never mind
who he is. You may have to accept Paige that you will never get the answers
that you want."
"I guess the truth always comes out, hey?"
Leah finds herself uneasily nodding back, immediately realizing that she
is keeping her own secret from her husband. "Yes, it does. I'm glad
you told me about this, Paige. I'm always here for you."
"I know Mom," Paige hugs her again. "I love you."
"I love you too baby."
"Did you get the air you were looking for?" Trenyce asks Vinny,
who was heading outside for some air the last time she saw him because
he saw Daisy arrive hand in hand with Tyler. Trenyce knows that Daisy's
affair with Tyler is still a sticky point for Vinny; she just hopes that
seeing them together doesn't make him revisit this idea of getting revenge
on them as she knows that it is the last thing that anyone needs.
"I did," Vinny nods back to her. "And, I saw Brett. He
tracked me down to tell me he is leaving town."
"Well, that is good news, isn't it?"
"I'd like to think so," Vinny tells her. "Thanks for listening
"Sure," Trenyce smiles back to him. She turns and sees Andrew
walking by. "Andrew, hi. You look nice in a suit."
"Thanks, how you are guys?" Andrew comes up to Trenyce and his
"Good, it's nice to see you Andrew," Vinny tells him.
"You too Uncle Vinny," Andrew replies to them.
"Why do you look so sad?' Trenyce asks him, noticing that Andrew
looks upset about something.
" Andrew begins to say but he changes his
mind. "Actually, it is Paige. She dumped me earlier today and I have
no idea what happened or why she turned so cold on me."
Vinny arches his eyebrow. "Are you sure you didn't do anything to
"I'm sure," Andrew insists. "It doesn't make sense."
"Maybe you could try to talk to her after the wedding," Trenyce
suggests to him. "If you really have no idea why she ended things,
she should at least give you an explanation."
Andrew uneasily nods back to her. "Yea, I might do just that,"
Andrew tells her, wondering if he asks Paige if she would even give him
a straight answer or not.
"I don't have much time," Max whispers to her Abby as they stand
in the corner of the foyer of the church. "The wedding is about to
"I know," Abby can't erase the smile from her face. "I
just can't believe that we did it; we actually broke up Andrew and Paige!"
"I can't believe it myself," Max admits to her. "I knew
that we had a good plan, but for it to actually work and not have any
glitches, it's a surprise."
"It was so great kissing Andrew," Abby admits to him. "I
know he told me we couldn't go any further but now that he is single,
I'm sure he will come knocking on my door."
"And I, I will be the shoulder Paige can cry on," Max smiles
to her. "That is, of course, she wants me more than a friend."
"We did it Max," Abby grins back to him. "We really did
Cheresa enters the foyer and sees the two of them together. She can see
Abby say "We did it Max, we really did it," and immediately
wonders what they are talking about.
"What did you do?" she asks herself, as she moves up closer
to them. "Hey Max," she calls out. "They are ready to begin.
The wedding is about to start."
Adam and Max stand at the alter next to Nicholas, who looks into the crowd
of guests that have gathered for the wedding. Soon, the music starts to
play and Dawn arrives at the back of the aisle. She slowly walks down
the aisle, looking at Shelley and Cheresa, who nod back to her in support.
Dawn then looks up at Adam at the alter and thinks to herself that he
does look handsome; she just can't help but wonder what Helen would think
about the day's events. Would she be supportive? She bites her lower lip,
trying not to think about her mother anymore today; At least not until
after the ceremony.
She arrives at the alter and hugs both Max and Adam before she stands
on her side. All the eyes in the church go to the back when the wedding
march begins to play and Robin arrives in her long, white gown. There
is a slight gasp at the sight of the beautiful bride by the crowd and
Robin slowly starts to walk towards Adam.
She looks at Dominick, who smiles back to her and then over at Leah and
Paige. Robin beams as she arrives at the alter and passes her bouquet
of flowers over Dawn, who accepts them. Adam can't take his eyes off Robin,
who smiles to her future husband.
"I'm the luckiest man in the world," Adam whispers to her as
they look at one another.
"I'm the lucky one," she whispers back to him.
"Dearly beloved," Nicholas begins the ceremony. "We are
gathered here today to celebrate the union of this man and this woman
as they enter the sacred bond of marriage. Marriage is not something that
two people enter into lightly; Adam and Robin have both expressed their
love and commitment to one another by being here today. We will now get
to witness their love as they move into their formal commitment."
"Now, before we go any further," Nicholas continues as he looks
into the crowd. "If anyone present has any reason for these two not
to be joined in this union, please speak now or forever hold your peace."
There's a moment of silence as Robin and Adam feel their hearts skip a
beat. Just then, the back doors open and Shane emerges. "Please,
stop the wedding! I need your help! Please!"
"Shane, what is going on?" Adam asks him as he turns away from
Robin and the crowd gasps at the interruption.
"It's Helen," Shane tries to catch her breath. "I think
