Robertson Enterprises; Dominick's Office

"Thank you all very much for coming this morning," Dominick stands up from his desk as he looks at the large round table in his office. At the table sits Donovan, Trenyce, Jeff, Leah and Tyler as Dominick called an important staff meeting. With Bob passing away, Dominick realizes that now is the time forRobertson Enterprises to come up with a new action plan that will help his company regain corporate control in the long running battle between the companies; Roboto will surely suffer without Bob running the organization, Dominick realizes. The only staff member who is missing is Robin and that is because she is still dealing with the fall out of her wedding not taking place.

"The reason I called this meeting is because we are in a prime position to really take Robertson to new heights," he explains to his staff. "With Roboto in turmoil right now due to Bob's death, we should strike while the iron is hot. We have to come up something pretty big to reclaim the market share."

"We have been hurting since the GenNext house last summer," Leah replies to everyone. "Despite how the campaign ended last year, Roboto has maintained a strong stranglehold on the younger demographic."

"We could go after the demo, or we could attract a different demo all together," Tyler tells the group. "Roboto was really focused on the younger buyers but they forgot about the rest of us."

"Depending on the product, it could appeal to everyone, not one specific demo," Donovan adds in.

"That's the kind of idea that I like to hear," Dominick replies to him. "If we could come up with a type of idea that branches out to the masses that would really be the best instead of focusing on one demographic; it would give us a better edge."

"My designs could become less specific," Trenyce tells everyone, thinking about her creative process. "I could try to think of ways to make clothing that would appeal to all."

"Jeff you're quiet, what are you thinking?" Leah looks over at her husband and can see that he has wheels turning. "You look like you have an idea."

"I do," Jeff looks at everyone before he looks up at Dominick. "When you think of Twin Peaks, what do you think of? The mountains. We are a mountain city. So, what if we use the nature around us? Let's create a mountain line; we could have a ski wear line, a snowboarding line, a hiking line, more winter athletic wear…"

"Our scents could be more woodsy," Donovan continues to run on his idea. "And rustic!"

"And, what do we do after we ski all day? Lounge by a fire place," Tyler chimes in, liking the creative process the team is thinking up. "That's entire different line afterwards."

"I love this," Dominick proudly smiles to everyone. "Let's keep this concept up. I want rough ideas from all of you on what our next steps will be! Good work team," he tells his staff.

The Sugarbowl

Vinny opens the door to the coffeehouse and moves inside quickly desperately seeking another coffee this morning. He didn't sleep well the previous night as his mind was racing about a way that he could get revenge on Daisy and Tyler for their affair. He knows that, for a while, he had the let the idea go of getting revenge on them but after he saw them together at Robin and Adam's wedding, he has been thinking he needs to get back at them. He hates that is he is looking like the fool in the situation; his only problem is that he has no idea how he is going to get revenge.

"I will think of something," he whispers while he waits for his coffee. 'And when I do, they won't know what hit them."

"Vinny!" the barista shouts out and Vinny grabs his coffee.

He moves over to the coffee bar and puts some cream and sugar into his beverage. Just as he's about to take a sip of his coffee, he feels his phone vibrate with an incoming message.

He pulls his phone out of his pocket and reads the message. "Just wanted to let you know that I'm in LA and getting settled. You likely don't care but wanted you to know," he reads out loud as he sees that the message is from Brett.

"You're right Brett," Vinny whispers to himself. "I don't care that you're in Los Angeles."

***

At the back booth, Adam and Robin sit across from one another with coffees in front of them. It is the first time that they have been able to spend any time together since their wedding day. "It's nice to see you," Adam looks over at her. "I'm sorry that I've been so preoccupied; this entire situation with Helen is like nothing I ever expected."

"I get it," Robin tells him before she takes a sip of her coffee. "I wish that our wedding was interrupted with the news that she is alive, but once we realized what happened, I knew that saving her was the only option. I am really happy for you and Dawn."

"I wish it hadn't been at our wedding either," he admits to her.

"Really?" Robin asks him back, knowing that she has felt insecure thinking that Adam may leave her once Helen was discovered to be alive and well. Nicholas has tried to tell her to not be insecure about this, but she hasn't been able to help it.

"Yes, really," Adam looks back at her. "Why would you think otherwise?"

"I don't know," she shrugs her shoulders. "So much of this time I was thinking that once Helen was revealed to be alive you would go back to her."

"That's crazy," Adam reaches over and grabs her hand. "I know things will be different, but I am still in love with you, Robin. That hasn't changed."

"I'm so glad to hear you say that," she smiles back to him. "Because, I still want to get married. I want to become your wife as soon as possible."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

Helen lays in her hospital bed with her eyes closed. She is still sleeping as she was suffering from severe dehydration while she was in the coffin. Helen had told Brandy that her water source was running low and Brandy agreed to refill it; however, Brandy accidently shot herself at the Calimo cabin before she could get the chance, which is a large part of the reason as to why she was so dehydrated.

Helen's eye lids slowly start to flutter a little and within a few minutes her eyes open. She looks around the hospital room trying to figure out where she is. Seeing how much strength she has, she slowly lifts her head off the pillow and then realizes that she's in the hospital. She lowers her head back to her pillow.

"Adam," she whispers to herself. "Adam….where are you?"

***

Dawn slowly opens the door to Victoria's hospital room and moves inside. She turns around and looks at the woman who buried her mother alive; she moves closer to Victoria, still trying to wrap her head around what could have happened to set Victoria's alter ego off to do something so horrific to her mother.

"I don't know if you can hear me or not," Dawn says as she reaches the base of the bed, where Victoria continues to lay comatose. "But I had to come see you. I had to see the woman who tried to take my mother away from me."

"You know," Dawn moves a piece of hair behind her ear. "I trusted you all those months ago when I came to the hospital after Jonah raped me. You told me that you had gone through something similar, do you remember that? Hearing you admit that to me made me feel like I wasn't alone and it gave me strength to on through with the medical exam. If I had known then that rape was a trigger for this other person to come out, I would have requested another doctor. I never would have let you hear my story."

Dawn moves closer to the comatose woman. "And then, for you to see my Mom come into the hospital because she was in a car accident and for you to think that it was her fault to send me to Monument Lake… this is just so insane! I really need you to wake up, Victoria, so you can answer for what you've done. You have to answer for all this!"

Dawn turns to leave Victoria but something tells her to turn back one more time. Victoria remains in a coma, however. "This won't be dropped Victoria. You will have to explain yourself."

Dawn turns one more time to leave but she finds herself opening her purse and pulling out her anti-depressant pill bottle. She puts a couple of pills in her mouth and then quickly swallows them down with her bottle of water. She then proceeds to exit the hospital room.

"Dawn?" a voice calls out from the hallway. "What are you doing in there?"

Dawn turns and sees Shelley approaching her. "I had to see her," Dawn replies to her friend. "I had to see the woman who told me that my mother was dead."

Shelley pulls her friend into a hug. "It's over now," she tells Dawn. "Do you hear me? You have your Mom back; that is what you need to focus on, nothing else."

Dawn uneasily nods back to her. "I know that you're right. It is just more difficult than expected."

The Pampa Grill

"You have the biggest smile on your face," Cassie notes to her son as they sit across from one another as they have breakfast together. Cassie hasn't seen her son this happy in a very long time, so she is curious as to what is making him feel this way.

Max uneasily chuckles to himself as he thinks about the previous evening when he and Paige were together and they shared a kiss. He has wanted this for so long; for Paige to be receptive of the kiss means more to him than he can explain. It really means that his plan with Abby to break Andrew and Paige truly has worked.

"It's nothing…" he begins to tell her.

"Don't you give me that Mr!" she swats his arm playfully. "I can see that something is going on, is it a girl?"

Max looks up to her. "Yea, it is," he admits to his Mom. "It's embarrassing to talk to your mom about this kind of stuff. Just know that I think I'm close to getting a girlfriend and if and when that happens, you'll be the first to know."

"I'm so happy for you," Cassie tells him as she takes a sip of her coffee. "You deserve all the happiness in the world, Max."

"How are things with you and Jacob?" Max asks her. "Has Natasha come around at all?"

"Are you kidding me?" Cassie laughs back to him. "That woman will never come around; once she has something in her head, it is Natasha's way or no way. I just wish she would lighten up on Jacob, he's going through so much with losing Bob right now."

"The entire family is hurting," Max reminds her. "You'd think that an engagement would be a good news story for the family."

"You'd think," Cassie rolls her eyes. "But you know Natasha, she's queen bee and everyone else should bow down to her."

Max laughs back to her. "I hope you don't say these things to Jacob."

"Of course not," Cassie tells him. "I'm trying to be supportive, but I swear to God, Natasha is going to make this the longest engagement in the history of engagements."

"Then you know what you have to do," Max tells his mother. "Marry Jacob sooner rather than later."

***

"Ugh, I don't know if we should stay here," Natasha looks over at Shane as she just noticed that Cassie is also in the restaurant with Max. The last thing Natasha wants this morning is to have a run in with Cassie Nova. She has enough on her plate right now with Bob's passing, the will reading and Jacob's engagement.

"We've already ordered," Shane tells his ex-wife. "She hasn't even noticed us here. We can pretend that we didn't see her."

"I'll do my best," Natasha waves her hand in the air. "But I can't make any promises."

"How are you? I mean really? These last few weeks couldn't have been easy on you, on any member of your family."

"Losing my Dad has been the hardest thing I've had to go through," Natasha admits to him. "Everything leading up to the car accident, it's just all Kim's fault. The fact that she was left so much of my Dad's assets, it's not cool. I hate that she is being rewarded for basically killing him."

"Your Dad and Kim had a very sorted relationship," Shane tells her. "But, I can understand why you feel that way."

"You do?"

"Of course," Shane nods back to her. "I'd likely feel the same way if it was me."

"I appreciate that more than you know," Natasha replies to him. "Cory and I haven't been seeing eye to eye on this. He wants me to try to bury the hatchet so the family can move on."

"That's not a bad idea," Shane tells her. "But, you're still entitled to feel the way you do. How is Jacob taking Bob's death?"

Natasha shrugs a little. "I think he's hurt," she admits to him. "The fact that he didn't get into town long before the accident; he didn't really get a chance to reconnect with Bob."

"You know Cassie is hovering over him too," Shane says back to her. "Jacob asked me to trust him with her relationship."

"Ha!" Natasha cackles. "Trusting Jacob with Cassie means we have to trust Cassie and I can't do that."

"I agree," Shane replies to her. "But, I'm not sure what we can do, Nat. He really seems to love Cassie."

"They won't be married," Natasha looks back at him. "Mark my words, Shane. I will do whatever I have to do to prevent that marriage from ever taking place."

The Calimo Mansion; The Rose Garden

Jacob slowly walks through the garden towards the monument of Sofia and Bob; the family laid Bob to rest next to Sofia, so they can visit their parents together. Jacob feels the sun beat down on him as he sets some roses next to the large monuments.

"I still can't believe that you're gone," Jacob tells his grandfather before he looks at Sofia's monument. "I never got to meet you, Grandma, but I heard such wonderful things about you. I suppose the silver lining to all this is that you two are together again; accordingly to Mom, you two were always meant to be."

"It's just hard you know," Jacob tries to not get choked up. "I'm here living my life and everyone around is telling me how I should be living it. I wish I knew how to control everyone, the way you were always in control Granddad. I wish I had told you that I admired that about you so much; no matter what the situation was, you were in control of it."

"I just hope you know that I'm going to make you proud," Jacob continues to tell him. "I won't let you down. I promise you, I will not let you down."
