The Calimo Mansion
"Good, you're home, we have to talk," Natasha throws her purse
on the sofa of the living room in the Calimo mansion as she spots Cory
looking out the French doors into the garden. Natasha recalls how she
was at Roboto with Robbie when Kim laid the bombshell on them that she
had hired Cassie to work at the company. This made the siblings realize
that Kim was using her power, left to her by Bob from his will, to her
full advantage. That is when Robbie revealed to Natasha that Cory was
the one who told Kim about his affair with Brooke, which helped sway the
Judge's decision to let Kim keep everything Bob left for her in the will.
Cory turns around and sees his wife, who appears to be fuming. He knows
that they haven't been seeing eye to eye lately, mostly because he hasn't
been a fan of her treatment towards Kim following Bob's death and how
she has been supporting Jacob's poor behavior to Cassie.
"Yea, I'm here," he replies to her. "I just put Sophie
down for her afternoon nap. I wasn't expecting you until later. I thought
you had a busy day planned at Roboto."
"Robbie and I are up to our heads with work," she quickly tells
him. "Kim isn't making our life easy over there. She's hired Cassie
Nova, can you believe that?"
"That is a surprise," Cory says back to her. "I didn't
realize Kim and Cassie knew each other or that Cassie had any experience
in the business world."
"She doesn't!" Natasha snaps at him. "Kim is doing this
with the sole intention of hurting me and Robbie! And you know what? This
is all your fault!"
"My fault?" Cory gasps back to her. "How can you possibly
blame me for any of this?"
"Because, I know," Natasha sneers at him. "I know that
you were the one who told Kim about Brooke and Robbie's affair."
"Robbie told you," Cory sighs back to her, knowing that it was
only a matter of time before the truth came out. In some ways, he's surprised
it took Robbie this long to tell Natasha the truth.
"You're damn straight he told me," she continues to grit her
teeth together. "So, tell me, husband, how could you give Kim the
ammunition to destroy everything Robbie and I were working towards? How
could you go against me that way?"
Cassie moves quickly off the elevator and towards the main office at Roboto.
After her confrontation with Jacob at the coffeehouse, she raced over
to Roboto hoping that she can start working as soon as possible. She realizes
that she has to stay focused on other things or she will drive herself
crazy wanting to get back at him for using her.
She stops outside the office door and takes a deep breath secretly hoping
that neither Robbie or Natasha are behind the door; she really doesn't
think she has enough to go another round with either of them. She opens
the door and breathes a sigh of relief to only see Kim in the office.
"Cassie, hi," Kim stands up from behind the desk. "I certainly
didn't think I'd see you again today."
"I know," Cassie moves into the office. "But I'm hoping
that I can start working right away. I need to work and do whatever it
takes to get mind my off Jacob."
"I get that," Kim moves up to her. "Are you sure you want
to do this? Working here means you will see Natasha and Robbie almost
"I can handle that," Cassie purses her lips together. "Just
knowing that I am working and putting a knife into Natasha's back at the
same time is the perfect combination for me."
"Great," Kim uneasily smiles back to her. "Let's get to
work then, shall we?"
Twin Peaks General Hospital
"Hey, has there been any change with Cheresa?" Paige asks Max
as she, Leah and Jeff move into the waiting room where Max is sitting.
Max immediately stands up and pulls his girlfriend into a hug. "No
change the last I heard," he tells her as they exit their embrace.
"Is everything okay with you and your
"Yea, we are cool," Paige smiles back to him. "They apologized
to me for overreacting about us seeing one another."
"It is true, we did," Jeff looks at Max who was looking at him
in surprise. Jeff and Leah can both appreciate why Max would be taken
aback since they were adamant that Paige not see him. "We owe you
an apology as well, Max."
"We had our reasons for not wanting you two together," Leah
tells him as she recalls Robin telling them about Max's role in Adam's
accident at the boutique. They told Robin they wouldn't say anything and
they will keep their word on that but they realize that they do have to
move on from this. "But you saved Cheresa's life; you're a hero."
"We want you to know that you have proven yourself worthy of our
daughter," Jeff tells him. "But don't think that we won't be
watching you. You better not hurt her."
Max chuckles back to him. "Don't worry," he pulls Paige into
his chest and squeezes her. "I have no intention of hurting her.
I care for her a lot."
"I feel the same way," Paige looks up into Max's eyes and they
smile to one another.
"I can't imagine what Cheresa's family is going through right now,"
Trenyce tells Chris as they sit in the cafeteria of the hospital with
Andrew next to them. "She's so young, and for her life to be changed
so drastically or worse
"Abby cancelled studying with me," Andrew reveals to them. "She's
going to ask for an extension on writing her midterm because she has been
here so much that she hasn't had time to focus."
"Do you think she will get the extension?" Chris asks him.
"I'd think so," Andrew nods back to him. "Your sister is
pretty nice about things like, I'd hope."
"Right," Trenyce replies to him. "I had forgotten that
Albertinah is your teacher."
Andrew uneasily nods back her knowing that recently he and Albertinah
slept together; however, she now insists that they are over and their
night together was a mistake. He knows why she is worried about it as
she could lose her job if anyone found out.
"Have you been in to see Cheresa?" Chris asks Andrew, knowing
that they are good friends.
"Not yet," Andrew replies to him. "They are only letting
family in right now."
"Yea, I tried to visit her myself," Trenyce admits to them.
"And was told the same thing."
"You tried to visit Cheresa? Why? I didn't think you were that close
to her?" Andrew asks her back.
Trenyce uneasily looks over at Chris as she takes a deep breath. "I'm
not that close to her," she replies. "I can't explain it though,
I just feel like I wanted to see her. Something was pulling me towards
"You're a caring woman, that's why," Chris puts his hand on
hers. "That's just the kind of woman you are."
Trenyce bites her lower lip. "Yea, that must be it."
"Why haven't we heard anything yet?" Abby asks Brad as she paces
back and forth in the waiting room, still eager to hear some kind of an
update on Cheresa.
"I wish I knew," Brad replies to her. "But don't worry,
knowing Mom and Dad, they already have some specialist flying in to help
"I hope so," Abby looks at her brother with helplessness in
her eyes. "I just can't believe this is, like, happening, you know?"
"I do know," Brad moves up to her and pulls her into a hug.
"We have to stay strong right now Abs. And, we have to have faith
that everything is going to turn out okay."
"I'm trying," Abby replies to him. "I just hope nothing
else bad happens; I don't think I could handle any other bad news."
Brad gulps as they exit their embrace as he recalls Meggan telling him
that she wants the truth about Cheresa to come out. He realizes, even
more, that he has to prevent her from telling anyone about Cheresa's paternity.
"I'm going to head out for a bit, but I'll be back, okay?" he
tells her. "I just need some air."
"Okay sure," Abby nods back to him. "Keep your phone with
you. I'll text you any updates."
The Pampa Grill
"So, therapy is going well then?" Robin asks Nicholas as they
sit across from one another in the restaurant. Robin knows that her brother
has started seeking therapy, which she thinks is a great idea since she
could tell that he was depressed about everything that happened at the
gala at St. Joseph's.
"Very well," Nicholas takes a sip of his red wine. He still
hasn't told Robin about Andy finding him with his hand gun in his hotel
room and he doesn't plan on telling her; he doesn't want to worry her
any more than he has too. But, he did tell her he started talking to a
professional. "I had no idea how much it would help me."
"I'm really glad to hear that," Robin replies to him. "You
were in a pretty dark place after the gala. This should help you and maybe
allow you to move on?"
"I'm hoping so," Nicholas tells her. "I was thinking about
leaving town, actually. But Andy, he thinks that this could be our chance
to be together finally."
"How do you feel about that?"
"I don't know, to be honest," Nicholas admits to her. "Part
of me thinks he is right but the other part of me still thinks he is the
reason I lost my job. I don't know if I can get over that completely."
"My advice? Keep going to therapy," Robin tells her brother.
"You may seek answers there."
"How is Dawn, by the way?" Nicholas changes the subject. "I
heard that she was found sleeping when they uncovered Cheresa's body from
"She was high on anti-depressants," Robin reveals to him. "Adam
and Helen are at the hospital now."
"Do you want to be there with them?"
"No," Robin waves her hand back to him. "When she wakes
up, she should be with her parents. I don't want to get in the way of
Nicholas uneasily nods back to her. "You're not still feeling insecure
"I know what you're going to tell me," she replies to him. "But
I can't help it. When I see Adam and Helen together, I don't know, I just
feel like they have a pull to one another."
"He is engaged to you," Nicholas reminds her. "Don't forget
Twin Peaks General Hospital
Craig slowly walks out of Dawn's hospital room and looks at Adam and Helen,
who are eagerly waiting to get an update on their daughter. They still
can't believe that Dawn had so many anti-depressants in her system that
she had to have her stomach pumped when she was brought into the hospital.
"Craig, how is she?" Helen asks the doctor, hoping for some
good news for a change.
"She's doing better," Craig replies to them as Adam and Helen
breathe a sigh of relief. "She's awake but her she is still sensitive
from the stomach being pumped."
"But she will be okay?" Adam asks him.
"She should be," Craig nods back to them. "We will keep
her here for a couple of days for observation but then she will be discharged.
And yes, you can see her, but when she gets tired, please let her rest."
"Thank you so much," Helen moves up to him while Adam opens
the door to the hospital room and Helen rushes inside.
They walk up to Dawn's hospital bed where she looks back at her parents.
"Hey guys," she manages to say. "Sorry I gave you such
"We are just glad that you're okay," Adam grabs his daughter's
"What happened? I don't have much memory," Dawn admits to her
Helen and Adam look at one another uneasily. "You were found asleep
on a bench on the pier," Helen begins to tell her daughter. "Cheresa's
body was found in the river."
"What? My God, is she
?" Dawn gasps as she sits up the
bed more alert.
"She's alive but fighting for her life," Adam continues to tell
Dawn. "When you were brought in, they found large amounts of drugs
in your system."
Dawn shuts her eyes as a tear falls down her cheek. "The anti-depressants,"
she whispers in embarrassment. "They made me so tired. My God, how
stupid could I be?"
"The good news is that you and Cheresa are alive and seemingly well,"
Adam tells her.
"But Dawn, we have to get this under control," Helen chimes
into the conversation. "You have to stop taking those pills."
Dawn nods back to her. "Yes, I do," she admits to her parents.
"I can't believe that Cheresa is fighting for her life and I couldn't
do anything because of those damn pills," she bites her lower lip
as she gets more tears in her eyes. "I will do anything to get better.
I promise you."
"I'm glad you're still here," Brad calls out to Meggan, who
is about to get on an elevator near the nurses station. Brad was hoping
to see her before she left for the day; she has to ensure that she doesn't
say anything about Cheresa's paternity. After seeing Abby, Brad realizes
that his family is going through enough right now; they couldn't handle
losing a member of the family they hold so near to them.
"I was just about leave and go check on Logan," Meggan replies
to him as she moves a piece of her hair behind her ear. "It is times
like these that you realize how precious family is."
"I couldn't agree with you more," Brad nods back to her. "That's
why I need you to understand why you can't say anything about Cheresa
right now, Meggan. My family, we are going through hell right now wondering
if she will make it. Please, don't make this worse on us."
Meggan sighs heavily back to him. "Brad
"No, don't say anything," Brad cuts her off. "Just please
think about what this would do to my family. I'm begging you, don't say
anything. Not now, not ever."
"This waiting for some kind of update is killing me," Brooke
tells Greg as she paces in the hallway outside of Cheresa's hospital room.
They have both had the chance to go in and see Cheresa but there has been
no change in her condition; she is still unconscious and she is still
hooked up to a ventilator to help her breathe. Brooke and Greg both just
hope that she wakes up sooner rather than later so Cheresa can truly start
"I've made some calls to some specialists," Greg replies to
her as he stands up from his chair. "Once I hear back, I will let
"Thank you," Brooke uneasily replies to him. She knows that
this has been the calmest he has been with her since the truth came out
about her affair with Robbie. "I just can't lose our little girl,
Greg. I can't."
Before Greg can reply to her, a young man walks up to Brooke. "Are
you Brooke Lawson?"
Brooke turns to him in surprise wondering what is going on. "Yes,
is this about my daughter?"
"You've been served," he tells her as he passes her some documents
in an envelope.
The young man walks away from Brooke who looks dumbfounded. She looks
back at Greg before she opens the envelope. She opens her mouth in shock
as she reads the documents in front of her.
"You've filed for divorce?" she gasps back to her husband. "Our
daughter is fighting for her life and you have time to go to a lawyer
about our marriage?"
"I told you we are over," Greg whispers back to her. "And,
for the record, I made the call before I found out about Cheresa, so don't
you dare make me be the bad guy here."
"You're unbelievable," Brooke sneers at him. "Our daughter
could die and all you care about is you and your needs! How insensitive
could you be?"
"Don't you dare raise your voice while Cheresa is in that room next
to us," Greg tells her. "And you can stop blaming me for this
because this is all your fault, Brooke. Everything that is happening to
our family is as a result of you sleeping with Robbie Calimo!"
The Calimo Mansion
"Answer me Cory!" Natasha yells at her husband, still wanting
answers about how Cory could have told Kim about Brooke and Robbie's affair.
She knows that his big mouth was the reason she and Robbie couldn't contest
Bob's will. "How could you go against me and everything I was fighting
"Because," Cory turns back and faces his wife. "What you
and Robbie were doing was wrong! You had no right going against any of
Bob's wishes! Kim deserved to get whatever her husband wanted her to have!"
"That wasn't your decision to make," Natasha grits her teeth
back to him. "That was up to the Judge!"
"No, Natasha, it shouldn't have gotten to that point. But no, you
and Robbie had to act like spoiled rotten brats!"
Natasha's hand reaches over and slaps Cory hard across the face. "How
dare you speak to me that way!"
"How dare I? How dare you!" Cory yells back at her. "You
just hit me!"
"And I'd do it again in a heartbeat," she glares back at him
as she feels her blood rising.
