St. Joseph's Church
Kim slowly walks down the main aisle in the church towards the large golden
coffin that is at the alter. Behind the coffin is a large picture of Bob.
She can't believe that the day is here; Bob's funeral is about to take
place and she will have to say goodbye to her husband forever. She has
no idea how she is going to get through the day. She puts her hands on
top of the coffin as she looks at the photo and feels her eyes swell with
"I love you so much," she whispers as a tear falls down her
cheek. "I just hope that you're in a good place Bob. And, I hope
you're looking down on me and are proud of what I've done. I've done exactly
what you told me to do," she continues to tell him, as she knows
that Bob told her while he was in the hospital to reveal that he was the
one who started the fire at the boutique. Since she did just that, Robbie
and Natasha have lashed out at her as they do not believe her story. It
doesn't help that Bob's children are also blaming her for his death and
suspect that she was sleeping with Greg Lawson.
"I will stay strong," she tells him. "Because I know that
is what you would have wanted but my God this hard."
At the back of the church, Robbie and Natasha appear and see their stepmother
hovering over Bob's coffin. Robbie looks at his sister and grabs her hand.
"We can get through this Nat," he tells her. "Today won't
be easy but we can do this."
"The hardest part is that we have to be civil to Kim," Natasha
replies to him quickly. "Once this is over, she will be out of our
lives forever. I won't have her ruining Dad's name any more than she already
Behind them, a figure in black watches them before it disappears in to
the back hallways of the church.
The Claus House; Leah, Jeff & Paige's Home
"Sweetheart, are you sure you don't want us to drive you to the church?"
Leah asks her daughter, who is finishing getting ready to go to the church
for the funeral. Leah was going to go with Paige so she could send her
support to Robbie; they were married for so many years that she did grow
close to Bob, but she thought that the family might not want any member
of the Robertson family present.
"Yea, I'm sure," Paige looks back to her. "I appreciate
"I hope you know that your grandmother and I, we never meant to upset
you the other day," Dominick comes up behind Leah and he looks at
Paige. "We are sorry."
"It's fine," Paige forces a smile on her face. "I know
that you and Bob had a mutual dislike for one another."
"Once the service is over, you know you can call us right?"
Jeff then tells her. "Someone can come get you, or we can take you
. Anything you need."
"Thanks guys, I really do appreciate it," Paige tells them.
"I better get going."
The family watches as Paige leaves the house before they return to the
living room. "I'm glad you apologized to her about the other day,"
Jeff tells Dominick. "She was really upset with how you spoke about
"I know, I know," Dominick waves his hand in the air. "I
didn't think before I said what I always say about Bob. Paige is a hell
of a lot stronger than we give her credit for."
"I just hope that she deals with the rest of the day okay,"
Leah says back to him. "But Daddy, I need to know, how are you dealing
with Bob's death? You two were rivals, but you were in each other's life
for so many years."
Dominick sighs back to her. "I'm fine," he reassures her. "I
think he got exactly what he deserved. I know that sounds harsh, but it's
how I feel. And now finally, our feud is over. There's nothing left for
us but to move on."
"I hope we finally can," Jeff says to them. "This family
could use some drama free time without any more secrets or lies. Where
is Felicia, by the way?"
Leah gulps and turns away from her husband. She hates that she is lying
to him; but she knows if she tells the truth she could lose her husband
and the life they have built together.
She shakes her head coming out of her train of thought. "She went
for a nap. She said she was tired and considering everything that has
happened the last couple of weeks, it's no wonder."
St. Joseph's Church
"It is days like today that make you realize how short life is,"
Meggan tells Brad as they walk towards the front door of the church. Meggan
has always hated funerals; saying goodbye to loved ones is not her idea
of fun. And, funerals always drag up memories of her own father's funeral
a few years ago. While she knows that Frederick did a lot of horrible
things, she does miss him still do this day.
"It is true," Brad replies to her as they move inside the church.
"It is hard seeing so many people sad."
"You know," she stops him and looks at him in the foyer of the
church. "This is exactly why we should tell Chris and Trenyce the
truth about Cheresa. They should know about their biological daughter
before it's too late. You never know when your last day will be."
"Meg," Brad starts to tell her as he can see his parents talking
in one of the pews of the church. "I already told you that my family
could lose everything if the truth came out. We can't risk that. I won't
do that to my family."
"Let's talk about this more later, let's go find a seat," he
interrupts her and grabs her hand pulling her towards the pews. He knows
that he will continue to interrupt her idea of revealing the truth every
chance he can; he can't let his parents get into trouble for how they
obtained Cheresa all those years ago.
In one of the pews, Brooke and Greg sit next to each other in silence.
Greg is looking straight ahead at Kim, who is still looking at the large
picture of Bob. He can't help but think of a few nights earlier when he
went to see her at Roboto and he helped her get rid of Simona Lopez, who
was asking her questions. Kim thanked him by giving him a hug; he knows
that he should be focusing on his family, but holding Kim in his arms
felt so good.
Brooke looks over at her husband and gulps heavily, knowing that Cory
has found out about her affair with Robbie. She is so upset with herself
for sleeping with him again; after Helen's "death" she vowed
to put her family first, but she ended up back in his bed anyways. She
just hopes that Cory doesn't say anything.
"I hate funerals," she finally says something to him, causing
Greg to stop looking at Kim for a moment.
"I know you do," Greg tells her. "Puts everything into
perspective though, doesn't it?"
Brooke nods back to him. "It really does," she grabs his hand.
"I hope you know that I still want our family and our marriage to
work, Greg. I want that more than anything in the world."
Greg lifts her hand and kisses it. "I want that too," he looks
into her eyes. "We've been through so much together."
"That we have," she smiles before she looks to the front of
the church. She sees Cory looking over at her and Greg which causes her
heart to skip a beat. She tells herself to stay calm, even though her
heart is now racing a million miles.
"Hey, I hope I'm not interrupting," Andy says as he moves into
the back room where Nicholas is getting ready for the service. Andy knows
that the man he is attracted too is probably bracing himself for a difficult
service. Officiating funerals cannot be an easy task, Andy realizes. "I
just wanted to see you before the service began."
"I was just getting ready," Nicholas stands up and moves closer
to his friend. "What brings you by?"
"I have the first draft of the article you wanted me to write for
the Sun about the gala at the church," Andy tells him as he passes
him a folder. "No need to read it right now, just let me know if
you like or if you want me to make any changes."
"Thanks, I wasn't expecting it that quickly," Nicholas puts
the folder on his desk. "I really appreciate you getting it to me."
"Of course," Andy smiles back to him. "I'm so happy to
help you with this. And, I'm really looking forward to the gala."
"Me too," Nicholas tells him.
"Here," Andy moves up to him. "Let me help you with your
collar, it's a little uneven."
Nicholas looks at Andy, who is now inches away from him fixing his collar.
Andy finishes and looks into Nicholas' eyes. "There, all better."
Andy leans in and kisses him on the lips. Nicholas responds but then pulls
away quickly. "Andy
"I know, I'm sorry," Andy quickly says back to him. "We
can't do that
I know. I just
"I should finish getting ready," Nicholas turns his back to
Andy, wishing that he could kiss him again. He can't think like that though;
he's with the church, they would forbid it. Still, the taste of Andy's
"Okay, let me know about the article," Andy says as he moves
to the door. "And Nicholas, good luck today."
"Paige, hey, wait up," Max calls out as he rushes from his car
up to his friend, who he saw walking towards the church. Max has been
so busy with Helen being alive that he hasn't had time to reach out to
Paige now that she has ended her relationship with Andrew but he knows
that this is his time to try to get with her. She's single and likely
still hurting, so he wants to be the shoulder she cries on in this time.
"Max, I didn't think you'd come today," Paige turns and waits
for him to catch up to her.
"I didn't know Bob that well, I only met him a few times when we
did the GenNext house at Roboto," he tells her. "But, I knew
you'd be here and I wanted to support you."
"That's so nice of you," Paige smiles back to him. "By
the way, I heard that you're a hero."
"I'm not sure I know what you mean?"
"You helped save Helen Black," Paige tells him. "What you
did makes you a hero."
Max uneasily chuckles back to her. "That's sweet of you to say but
I just did what anyone would have done."
"Well, to me you're a hero," Paige smiles to him.
"Let's sit together inside, you can use my hero shoulder if you need
to cry," Max winks back to her.
"That sounds nice," she tells him as they move inside the church,
unaware that she played right into Max's hand.
"Are you sure you want me to be with you?" a nervous Cassie
asks Jacob as they stand in the foyer of the church. She does want to
support her fiancé while he says goodbye to his Grandfather, but
she knows that her presence will send Natasha into a tailspin and the
last thing Cassie wants is to create more tension for Jacob.
"Of course I'm sure," he looks into her eyes. "You're my
rock right now. I need you."
"Okay, then I'll sit with you," she replies to him. "I'm
just worried about your Mom."
"Don't worry about her," Jacob says back to her. "She is
going to be more preoccupied with the service."
Cassie uneasily nods back to him. "Let's go get our seat."
They start to walk through the aisle together. At the front of the church,
Natasha turns around from looking at the coffin and feels her blood boil
at the sight of her son walking hand in hand with Cassie.
"Thanks for getting back to me with some dates that you're free to
have dinner with Trenyce and myself," Chris tells Andrew as they
sit together at the window bar in the coffeehouse. "I know she'll
be happy to see you."
"Yea, for sure," Andrew uneasily tells him back, recalling how
annoyed Chris was before when he asked him for dates and he wasn't sure
his schedule. "It'll be nice to catch up. I'm surprised you're not
at Bob's service, didn't you used to work for him at Roboto?"
Chris nods back to him. "For many years," Chris tells him. "But,
we were never close. I worked for the man, I didn't really know him outside
of the office."
"How about you? I'm sure Paige will be there."
"Yea, I'm giving her space. She ended things with me and I'm not
sure why. I ran into her the other day and she didn't want to talk about
it. I could see she was hurting over losing Bob."
"That's big of you," Chris tells him. "Giving her space,
"There'll be time for me to understand what happened. I just want
her to get through the loss of her grandfather without any added pressure
"I'm very proud of you Andrew," Chris says back to him. "You're
handling this much better than I would have."
Andrew chuckles back to him. "I'm also thinking of applying to go
to school; maybe to Twin Peaks University. I'm sort of tired of not really
doing anything with my life."
"I think that's a great idea," Chris replies to him. "And
you know what? If things don't work out with you and Paige, going to school
is a great way to meet a lot of other girls."
Andrew smirks back to him. "That's the kind of thing I needed to
hear," he laughs back to Chris.
St. Joseph's Church
Robbie looks out at the crowd in the church but soon sees Brooke looking
back at him. As he shuts his eyes for a moment, he can't help but think
about their recent night of passion. She doesn't know it, but that is
helping him get through the day. He opens his eyes and looks next to him
and sees Natasha, who looks like she is still fuming at the fact that
Cassie is at her father's funeral.
"There's no easy way to begin this," Robbie finally addresses
everyone in the church. "We have to say goodbye to the man who raised
us; to the man who taught us everything we know; to the man who gave us
everything we have today; we have to say goodbye to our father."
"Our father was not perfect, as all of you know," Natasha then
says. "But, he loved us and everyone in his family more than anything
else in the world."
"He had this way about him," Robbie continues as he starts to
choke up a little. "He called it 'tough love' but you knew that he
did always love you."
"The hardest part about all of this," Natasha lets a tear fall
down her cheek, as the figure dressed in all black peers into the church
from the doorway. "Is that we never got a chance to tell him how
much we loved him because his life was cut short. It was too soon for
him to leave us. He will never get to see my beautiful baby girl grow
up, or see my son Jacob get married or have children
Robbie pulls his sister into a hug before he grabs her hand, as Cassie
grabs Jacob's hand. "We love our Dad so much," Robbie looks
out at everyone. "And we will never forget what he has done for us."
A short time later, Kim is standing at the alter holding a tissue in her
hand. She looks out and sees Andy sitting in the front pew slowly nodding
his head in encouragement. She then sees Robbie and Natasha who look stone
cold back at her. Further back, she can see Greg, who winks to her. The
dark figure continues to watch from afar as the funeral unfolds.
"How do you say goodbye to a man you've loved most of your adult
life?" she beings to ask everyone. "That's what I'm facing today.
I have loved this man for so many years. Yes, we had our ups and downs
like every relationship, but we loved one another so very much."
"When Bob and I first started seeing one another, a lot of people
thought we wouldn't make it or that I was after his money," Kim tries
to chuckle to everyone. "But together we proved everyone wrong. We
were so happy for so many years. We were each other's rocks; he helped
me through the roughest time of my life when I lost my son, and I helped
him through many ordeals because that's what you do when you're in love.
Now, I'm going through another difficult time and I have no
she stops as she sobs loudly. "Idea how to get through this,"
she says through her tears. "This doesn't seem right or fair."
Andy moves up and hugs his sister. "Sorry, I'm good to continue,"
she tells him.
"You can save your pathetic tears," a voice calls out from the
back of the church causing everyone in attendance to turn around. "You
and your husband are a joke and he is getting exactly what he deserves,"
the figure in black continues to say as she makes her presence known.
Paige stands up and looks at Felicia, who is dressed in all black and
who is glaring at Kim. "Grandma, please
"I'm sorry Paige, but this has to be said," Felicia continues
to move towards Kim. "Your husband started a fire that almost killed
me! Then he brained washed me into thinking I was responsible! Do you
have any idea what the last year of my life has been like?"
" Kim starts to protest back to her.
"Shut up! Just shut up!" Felicia yells at her. "I'm glad
he's dead! Do you hear me? I'm glad Bob is dead!"
"Do you see what you've done?" Natasha stands up and lashes
out at Kim. "Because you're spreading these lies, everyone thinks
our father is a monster! And that's on you, you selfish bitch!"
Kim sobs as Felicia and Natasha's words sting her. She pulls Andy into
a hug and sobs into his arms.
"I think that's enough, don't you?" Andy grits his teeth back
to Natasha and Felicia, stunned by how they are treating Kim on the day
of her husband's funeral.
