St. Joseph's Church

"Hey Sophie," Cory bends down to face his daughter. "Why don't you take your dolls and go play at the altar while I talk to Uncle Robbie, okay?"

Sophie nods back to him and then runs down the aisle towards the front of the church. Cory then stands up and looks over at Robbie, who just asked him if he had anything to do with revealing his affair to Kim. Cory remembers that he did tell Kim the truth about the affair because he felt like Kim should be able to keep everything that Bob left for her in his will. The fact that Robbie and Natasha were trying to tear that away from her was disgusting in the first place.

"How dare you ask me such things in front of my daughter," Cory spits back to Robbie. "She's too young to get involved with this drama."

"Answer the question," Robbie replies to him quickly, thinking Cory would be the logical one who spilled the beans about his affair with Brooke; it would explain part of the reason why Cory has been so difficult on him and Natasha during the court case. "Did you or did you not tell Kim about my affair with Brooke?"

Cory chuckles back to him. "In the future," Cory warns him. "Maybe match sure all your doors are closed before you sleep with a married woman. Now, I'm going to get my daughter before the ceremony begins."

Robbie feels his blood boil as Cory basically just admitted to telling Kim the truth. "Wait until Natasha finds out," he whispers to himself, wondering how else he should handle his brother in law.

***

The wedding march music begins to play, so Robbie quickly scurries to his seat. He glares at Cory and Sophie, who are sitting in the front row next to Max and Paige. They all turn around and see Cassie appear at the back of the church wearing a simple, white gown.

Cassie smiles as she looks at Jacob, who is standing at the altar waiting for her to arrive. They nod to one another before Cassie slowly starts walking down the aisle moving closer and closer to her fiancé.

Raven's Meadow

"Why would you say that?" Greg asks Brooke as they stand in his office facing one another. Greg was surprised when she arrived at his office as he wasn't expecting to see her; they shared a seemingly close moment until she said that she hopes he could forgive all of her mistakes. He doesn't understand why she'd say something like that since they are on very good terms right now, probably better than they have been in a very long time. "You know that I love you Brooke. Why are you asking me not to question that?"

Brooke runs her hand through her blonde hair as she moves past her husband and walks over to the bar. She pours herself a tall whiskey and takes a sip of it. As she tries to set the glass down, her hands start to tremble.

"Hey, what's gotten into you? What's going on Brooke?" a concerned Greg asks his wife as he comes up behind her.

"I…" her voice trembles and quivers. "I have to tell you something."

"You can tell me anything," Greg tries to calm her down. "You know that, Brooke. After everything we've been through…"

"I cheated on you again!" Brooke cuts him off as he turns to him as a tear strolls down her cheek. "My God, I've been having an affair!"

The Lawson Estate

"Is Dawn, like, okay?" Abby asks her sister as she looks over on the sofa and sees Dawn fast asleep. She thinks that it is odd that Dawn is at their house asleep; she wonders if everything is going okay with her.

"Yea, I think so," Cheresa nods back to her. Cheresa recalls how her friend almost fainted earlier and then asked to lay down on the sofa for a moment; she hopes that her friend is okay but she doesn't want to worry anyone else about Dawn until she's had a chance to get to the bottom of it with her friend. "I think she is just exhausted; you know, she has been through a lot lately."

Abby uneasily nods back to her. "Yea, I guess she has. I hope she's okay. It's just weird that she's here sleeping."

"She'll be up soon," Cheresa replies to her. "Listen, are you busy tonight?"

Abby shrugs her shoulders back to her sister. "I don't have any real plans. I was hoping I could study with Andrew for my midterm that is coming up but he hasn't confirmed with me. Why do you ask? What's up?"

"I was thinking," Cheresa purses her lips together. "That we could throw a nice dinner for Mom and Dad. You know, invite Brad over too, we could cook. I dunno, we just seem to be in a nice place right now, it would be nice to keep that going."

"Yea, that's ,like, a great idea," Abby grins. "I'll text Brad now, you figure out the menu!"

"Sounds good Abbs."

Dominick's Townhouse

"I'm glad that you're home," Eva tells her husband as she moves into the living room and sees him sitting next to Felicia on the sofa. She sees them together and immediately feels her insecurities about Dominick being so close to his ex-wife creep into her mind. She hates that she feels this way but she knows that Felicia and Dominick have always remained close.

"Darling, what is going on? Is everything okay?" Dominick stands up and moves up to his hug wife.

"Everything is fine," Eva nods back to him. "I'm not interrupting, am I?"

"Not at all," Felicia stands up and replies to her. "Dominick and I were just discussing Paige."

"Of course," Eva realizes that it makes sense that they would be talking about Paige since it has created a lot of conflict within their family.

"Are you going to tell me what your news is?" Dominick asks her. "I'm curious about what you wanted to discuss."

"I heard from Victoria's doctors," Eva reveals to him and then looks over at Felicia. "They said she's doing very well. They think she's getting better."

"That is wonderful news," Dominick hugs his wife as he gets a smile on his face.

Felicia turns her back so she doesn't have to see the two hug. She feels her blood boil inside of her as she knows that Victoria's alter ego killed Barbara, her only friend when she was in Raven's Meadow.

"Felicia, what's wrong? I can tell that you're upset about something," Dominick notes his ex-wife's behavior.

Felicia turns around and glares at Eva. "I am just trying to get over the fact that your daughter killed Barbara and will get away without paying any consequences."

Eva sighs back to her. "My daughter was mentally ill," she tells Felicia. "How dare you speak to me that way?"

"How dare I?" Felicia gasps back to her. "Your daughter is a murderer!"

"Okay, okay, ladies that's enough…" Dominick comes between them, not wanting a huge fight between the two of them. "This isn't the time or place to get into this discussion."

"This is my home," Eva points her finger at Felicia. "You better respect me and my family when you're here, or you won't be welcomed back here," she huffs before she storms off, leaving Felicia and Dominick standing in the living room alone.

The Richardson Estate; Meggan & Lukas' Home

"Is it me or is did our sex get so much better since we got engaged," Donovan tries to catch his breath as he his bare, sweaty, chest is exposed and Lukas lays next to him, barely having his body covered by the blankets.

Lukas smirks as he looks over to him. "I think it's always been good but you have been extra, uh, forceful the last couple of times."

"That's not a bad thing is, is it?"

Lukas chuckles back to him. "You saw the end result, it was definitely not a bad thing."

Donovan leans over and kisses his fiancé passionately. "Just think, we can spend the rest of our lives doing this together."

"I love the sound of that Donovan, I really do."

"Me too babe."

The Sugarbowl

Andy moves inside the coffeehouse looking to grab some coffee before he heads back to the Sun to finish working on his article for tomorrow's edition. He is glad to have work right now because he wants the distraction from the drama between him and Nicholas and everything going on with Kim. As he grabs his coffee, he can't help but see Craig sitting alone at the window bar. Andy finds himself moving over to his friend.

"Hey Craig," Andy sits next to him. "How are you? Things are good?"

Craig uneasily nods back to him. "I've been thinking about you and Nicholas," he admits to him. "I should be asking you if you're okay?"

Andy uneasily sighs back to him. "It's been a rough couple of weeks," Andy admits to him. "But really, I'm more worried about Nicholas. He lost a hell of a lot more than I did."

"And, he's still not talking to you?"

Andy shakes his head no. "He isn't," Andy replies. "And, part of me gets it but the other part of me just wants him to let me in, you know?"

"Yea, I get it," Craig tells him. "My advice, don't let him go through this alone. Let him know that you're there even if he tries to push them away. It's worse to see the person you care about hurting than being happy."

Andy arches his eyebrow. "Why do I get the feeling that the last comment was about you? What is going on?"

"Nothing, really," Craig waves his hand in the air.

"It's nothing," Andy tells him. "We are friends, Craig. Whatever you say to me will stay between us. Who do you have feelings for?"

Craig closes his eyes and recalls looking deeply into Lukas' eyes the night Donovan proposed to him. They came so close to kissing but Lukas pulled back. Later, Craig told Lukas not to hold on to hope for them if Donovan is asking him to marry him.

"Craig, you can tell me. I won't say anything, I promise."

Craig uneasily looks back at him. "I think…" he begins to say to him. "That I have feelings for Lukas still."

Andy's mouth opens in surprise. "And before you say anything," Craig tells him. "I know that he and Donovan just got engaged. That's why I didn't want to say anything."

"Look at us," Andy tells him. "The two of us are good looking men and here we are pining after men that are taken in some form or another."

"That's the way love goes," Craig tries to chuckle back to him.

Twin Peaks Executive Hotel

Nicholas paces back and forth in his hotel room trying to think of something other than the mess his life is in right now. He has been thrown out of the church following the Arch Bishop finding him and Andy having sex the night of the Gala at St. Joseph's. Nicholas knows that he and Andy were only together because the Bishop was overly critical of Nicholas' renovations to the church which left him feeling like he wasn't going to have a job anyways. His attraction to Andy had been building slowly for months; so when Andy was there to comfort him, they gave into their passions. Now, as a result, everything is ruined.

Nicholas runs his hand through his hair as he feels his eyes swell with water as he tries to think about what he could do to try to get past all of this; however, everything he thinks of ends up back firing.

"Maybe I should contact the Arch Bishop again," he whispers to himself. "No, that's dumb. He needs time to get over it; if he ever will get over it. I'm such a screw up!"

Nicholas has continued to put himself down as a result of the events leading to his termination. "Damn it, there really isn't anything less for me. I have absolutely nothing left."

Nicholas turns and looks out of his window at the view of Twin Peaks and breaths heavily. "I don't know how much more I can go with this."

He turns around and walks to the chair where he has a duffle bag sitting there. He opens the bag and riffles through some of the clothing until he finds a hand gun. He picks it up and gets more tears in his eyes as he looks at the pistol.

St. Joseph's Church

Cassie slowly walks down the aisle to the wedding march. She looks over at Max and smiles at her son, who nods back in approval to her. Jacob watches his fiancé and beams back to her.

"I can't believe we are doing this," Cassie whispers to him as she reaches the altar. "I love you so much."

Jacob nods back to her as he looks up to the priest. "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the union of marriage by this man and this woman," the priest announces to everyone. "Jacob and Cassie are entering marriage and are ready to commit to one another today, tomorrow and for the rest of their lives."

The couple look at one another and smile quickly. "Before we proceed, I have to ask if anyone present as any reason for why these two should not be joined in this union, speak now or forever hold your peace."

Cassie and Jacob look into the pews and hope that no one is going to say anything. They look back at one another and then up at the priest.

"Wait, stop the service! Stop the wedding!" Natasha yells as she and Shane open the doors to the church and rush inside, as Cassie rolls her eyes and Jacob looks back in concern at his parents.

Raven's Meadow

"I, I don't think I heard you correctly," a dumbfounded Greg replies to his wife, who just confessed that she has been having an affair on him again. He really thought that they had turned a corner in their relationship and now Brooke is confessing that she is sleeping with another man. "You're cheating on me?"

"I'm so sorry Greg," she tells him. "I've ended the affair and we have gotten closer again because we both wanted the same thing; we wanted to put our marriage back together and we have, we really have!"

"When was the last time you slept with him?" Greg asks her back, trying to process all of this information.

"Greg…"

"WHEN?"!

"The night before we made love…" Brooke uneasily tells him.

"Unfuckingbelievable," Greg yells back to her. "You have been playing me for a fool Brooke! Again!"

"I'm so sorry," Brooke pleads with him. "I want us to work now. I want our marriage to work!"

"What marriage?" Greg asks her. "You spread your legs for any guy that comes your way."

"That's not fair!" Brooke cries to him.

"Who is he?' Greg asks her as he looks into her eyes. "I want to know who the son of a bitch is."

Brooke shakes her head back to him. "Tell me who he is!" Greg demands answers from his wife.

Another tear falls down her cheek as she looks back into her husband's eyes. "Robbie Calimo," she gaps in-between tears. "I've been sleeping with Robbie."
