Twin Peaks Courthouse

"How dare you!" Robbie stands up and looks over at Kim, who just announced to everyone in the courtroom that he is sleeping with Brooke. He has no idea how she has found out about his affair but he can't believe that she is announcing it just before Judge Franklin Ross< was about to make his ruling. "You have no right to tell anyone anything about my personal life?"

"Don't I?" Kim laughs back to him. "You and your sister are trying to make me look unworthy of my husband's legacy and you are trying to take everything away from me, meanwhile you are sleeping with a married woman? You're a joke and this entire case is a joke!"

"That is ENOUGH!" Franklin smashes his mallet down repeatedly. "Both of you sit down and be quiet or I will throw you all out of here! Do I make myself clear?"

Kim and Robbie glare at one another but slowly sit down in their chairs. "I have absolutely no patience for you two bickering in my office, if either of you, or you Natasha, say one more thing out of turn, I will hold you in contempt and fine you, do I make myself clear?"

"Yes your honor," the three of them say in unison.

"All three of you should be incredibly ashamed of yourselves," the Judge continues to lash out at the Calimo's. "Not only for the contesting of this will but with your behaviors to one another. That being said, I have made my decision and then I don't want to see or hear from any of you again!"

The Tower's, Floor Three; Shelley's Condo

Dawn sits on the sofa in Shelley's condo as she waits for her friend to come out of the kitchen with a pitcher of lemonade. Dawn came over to see her friend to catch up with her after she had breakfast with Adam, however, she realizes that right before she left the house with her Dad she had taken a couple of her anti-depressant pills, which after a couple of hours, make her feel very tired. She is starting to feel the effects of the pills now so he is hoping that Shelley doesn't notice.

"Okay, here we go," Shelley comes into the living room carrying a tray in her hands with some cups and the pitcher of lemonade. "This is an old recipe that I got from my Nana."

"It sounds," Dawn begins to say as she lets out a large yawn. "Sorry, excuse me."

"Its okay, are you feeling okay?' Shelley sits next to her friend as she pours two glasses from the pitcher. "It's not like you to feel so exhausted so early in the day."

"Yea, I'm fine," Dawn nods back to her before she yawns again. "I guess I must not have slept the best last night."

"I hope that's all it is," Shelley replies to her, growing concerned about Dawn. She hasn't seen Dawn this out of it before. "Maybe you should lay down for a little bit?"

"I think that's a good idea," Dawn tells her as she lays her down on the pill behind her and falls quickly asleep, unable to stay awake due to the medication.

"What is going on with you?" Shelley whispers to herself as she sees Dawn resting her eyes in front of her. "And why do I get the feeling that I won't like it?"

Twin Peaks University

"I'm sorry that you didn't get the grade you wanted too," Andrew tells Abby as they walk through the hallways of the university together. Andrew just finished hearing from Abby that she only got a C on her world history paper, which is upsetting to her because she felt like she put forward a good effort. Andrew, on the other hand, got an A, mostly because of the pointers that Albertinah gave him. He knows he won't tell Abby that she helped him because it would likely make her feel upset.

"It, like, just sucks a lot," Abby replies to him. "I worked so hard and it's like Albertinah didn't even notice that."

"There's always next time Abby," Andrew says back to her. "We have that midterm coming up, if you ace that, you'll be fine."

"I need your help," Abby looks into his eyes. "You got an A, so you're obviously getting this stuff. Study with me?"

"Sure, we can plan something," Andrew nods back to her. "Look, I have something I need to take care of, we'll be in touch about studying?"

"Absolutely," Abby smiles back to him. "See ya."

Andrew walks away from his friend and looks over his shoulder to see Abby walking in the opposite direction. He opens the door to the world history classroom and quickly moves inside. He turns around and sees Albertinah sitting at her desk.

"Mr. Pherson, this is a surprise," she stands up and looks at Andrew. "What brings you by?"

"I wanted to thank you for the pointers you gave me on the essay," Andrew moves up to her, unable to deny how attracted he is to her. "It really helped me get the grade I wanted to get."

"You're most welcome," Albertinah tells him. "Not everyone asks for assistance when they need it; it shows great courage."

"I wanted to do well," Andrew nods back to her. "I guess I wanted to make an impression."

"You certainly have!" she smiles back to him.

Without thinking Andrew leans in and kisses her on the lips. It only lasts for a moment before she pulls away. "Mr. Pherson…"

"I'm so sorry," Andrew shakes his head back to her. "I shouldn't have done that."

"No you shouldn't have," she replies to him in a stern voice. "I should get back to my marking, but you make sure that never happens again, understood?"

"Yea, I get it, sorry again," he replies to her before he rushes out of the room, leaving Albertinah softly touching her lips with her hands, unable to stop thinking about his lips pressed up against hers.

The Pampa Grill

"I heard from Nicholas Young about St. Joseph's," Cassie tells Jacob as they sit across from one another having breakfast together. They are finishing planning their wedding, which she loves because she can't wait to marry him. She's also glad that she is helping him keep his mind off the fact that Natasha is in court learning if the Judge will agree to overturn Bob's will.

"And? Did we get the date for the wedding?" Jacob asks her before he takes a bit of his bacon.

"We did," Cassie smiles over to him. "But, he said that he didn't have any other details as he isn't working at the church anymore."

"That's odd, I wonder what happened?" Jacob replies to her. "Not that it matters, we got the date, that's the best news!"

"I thought so too," Cassie says back to him. "That means we can get married, Jacob. I don't think there's anything else stopping us."

"That's the best news I've had in a very long time," Jacob grins back to her. "Let's get married babe."

Andy wipes his mouth after taking his last bite of his breakfast and throws his napkin on to the empty plate. He takes one final sip of his coffee before he stands up and prepares to leave. He wanted to have breakfast before he goes to the courthouse to see Kim as he knows that she is getting the Judge's ruling today; he just hopes that she wins because otherwise he knows that his sister will be devastated.

As he moves to the exit, he sees Nicholas waiting to be seated by the hostess. He pauses as he hasn't seen Nicholas since the day after they had sex for the first, and only time, as Melissa, Phil and the Arch Bishop walked in on them. Following that, Andy tried to apologize to Nicholas; he was told that Nicholas didn't want to see him anymore. Andy has been trying to stay strong but he is actually heartbroken at the rejection.

Andy moves up to Nicholas and puts a small smile on his face. "Morning Nicholas," he says as he walks up to his lover.

"Morning," Nicholas manages to say back to him.

"How are you?"

"Good."

"Great," Andy replies to him. "I guess this not speaking to me is still a thing?"

"I have no idea what you want me to say?" Nicholas looks back at him. "I told you that day at the hotel why I didn't want to see you anymore. Nothing has changed."

"Everything has changed," Andy replies to him. "Your parents are out of town; the arch Bishop went home. We can sit down and talk about things…"

"There's nothing to talk about," Nicholas informs him. "I don't think seeing you or rehashing things will change that. I need to keep my distance so I can get my life back."

Andy slowly nods back to him feeling his heart breaking all over again. "Okay, take care of yourself Nicholas," Andy whispers as he feels his heart in his throat.

Nicholas watches Andy walk out of the restaurant and feels his eyes swell with water. He hates that he is clearly hurting Andy, but he can't stop thinking about Melissa's warning to keep away from Andy if he wants to get back into the church.

***

In the center of the dining room, there is a large table set up for Brooke, Greg, Brad and Cheresa. There is an extra spot for Abby, who is going to join her family when she arrives from school. After making love to Brooke, Greg thought it would be nice to get the family together for a breakfast. He and Brooke are seemingly closer than ever before, largely due to the fact that he got a text from Kim indicating that their kiss that they shared recently was a mistake and couldn't happen again.

"This is a really good morning," Brooke leans over and whispers into his ear. "You were at home earlier."

Greg grins back to her. "You were too. I had missed you, Brooke."

She kisses him on the lips. "I love that we are back in this place, Greg. I never want us to be apart again."

"We are together forever," he nods back to her.

"Sorry I'm late," Abby announces to her family. "School is really sucking."

"Why, what happened?" Cheresa asks her sister.

"I got a C on my world history paper," Abby pouts. "I worked so hard and that stupid teacher only gave me a C!"

"You can still make it up on the midterm?" Brad asks her. "Don't worry about one grade Abbs, you got this!"

"Ugh, I hope so, I don't wanna flunk."

"This is so nice," Brooke leans over and whispers to Greg. "I never want our family to be at odds again."

Greg grabs his wife's hand. "I love you Brooke. I really do."

"I love you too," she smiles back to him, hoping that this is truly the start of the healing process for her and Greg and their entire family.

Twin Peaks Courthouse

Natasha, Robbie and Kim wait in silence, and all holding their breath, as they wait for the Judge's ruling. They all know that whatever he is about to say will change all of their lives forever. Cory, meanwhile, slowly opens the door to the office and sneaks into a chair in the back row.

"In the attempt to contest Robert Calimo Sr.'s will, I find that the request made by his children, Robert Jr and Natasha, to be most troubling. This document, the will, is the deceased's final wishes. Regardless of what happened between him and his wife, was personal and between them. The fact that his children wanted to overturn his will is truly disturbing," Franklin announces to everyone, as Robbie and Natasha look at one another uneasily. "Therefore, I am rejecting the motion to overturn his will. Bob Calimo's will remain as it is; the way he wanted it to be. This case is closed."

Kim stands up with a huge grin on her face and hugs Josh quickly. "Thank you so much," she tells him. "I couldn't have done this without you."

"I'm happy to help," he tells her as they exit their embrace.

Kim looks to the back of the room and sees Cory looking back at her. She nods back to him before she picks up her purse. She moves over to Robbie and Natasha, who are sitting with their heads down, stunned that they didn't win the case. They thought the Judge would see things their way.

"I really hope that this is the start of us moving on," Kim tells her stepchildren. "I never wanted this to get so ugly."

"How'd you find out about me and Brooke?" Robbie stands up and looks at her. "You realize that this court is a public accounts, right? Anyone at any given time could read that Brooke and I …"

"That's not important," Kim cuts him off. "You two left me no choice. I just want…"

"Oh shut up with your holier than though attitude," Natasha spits back to her. "We will find out how you knew about Robbie and Brooke and when we do, look out for your source, Kim. We will make you pay, if it's the last thing we do."
