The Pampa Grill
sits at the bar with a glass of red wine in front of him as he reflects
on his conversation with Lukas
earlier in the day. Lukas had advised his friend that it was time that
he forgive Andy
for everything that happened the night of the gala at St. Joseph's; since
that night, Nicholas has been pushing his one-time lover away as he had
been blaming him for the Arch Bishop walking on them making love. But,
the more Nicholas thinks about it, the more he realizes that he does still
care about Andy; he always has.
"He really didn't know that my mother
was trying to get the Bishop to forgive me," he whispers to himself
before he picks up his merlot and takes a sip of it. "Maybe Lukas
is right; maybe it's time that I move on from all of this. Andy and I,
we've always had an attraction to one another."
He pulls his phone out of his pocket and finds Andy's name in his contacts.
"Hey, can we get together soon? Meet me at my hotel room later?"
He sends the text message and then puts his phone down before picking
up his wine glass again. "Well, here goes nothing."
"You look exhausted," Robin
observes over to Adam,
who takes a small bite of his spinach salad. She is happy that her fiancé
was able to get away from the hospital as he has been there since Dawn
was found on bench on the pier before Max
body in the river. Dawn was discovered to have so many anti-depressants
in her system that she had to have her stomach pumped.
"I'm glad you convinced me to get away from the hospital," Adam
replies to her quickly. "I don't think I've eaten properly in a few
"That was part of my plan," Robin tries to smile back to him.
"I was worried about you. You have to take care of yourself even
though you are worried about your daughter."
"I know," Adam sighs back to her before he takes a sip of his
white wine. "Helen
and I both have been so worried about her. We've had a hell of year with
Helen being buried alive, coming back to us and now Dawn's dependency
with her pills."
"Did you and Helen talk to Dawn about it?"
"We did," Adam nods back to her. "Once she realized how
badly Cheresa was hurt, she agreed to get help with her addiction. It
just hurts so much to see her turning to medication because of everything
she has been through the last couple of years."
"The most important thing is that she is getting better. We have
to look at the positives," Robin tells him. "Which is why I
Adam looks up from his salad and makes eye contact with her. "What
were you thinking?"
"We should get married," Robin replies to him quickly. "Think
of how much good a wedding would do for us and the family right now."
"No," Adam immediately tells her. "I can't marry you, not
Robin feels the blood drain from her face as her mind races to seeing
how close Adam and Helen have become while dealing with Dawn. She wonders
if this is another indication that Adam is growing closer to his ex-wife.
"My focus has to be on Dawn," he quickly tells her. "We
don't know what type of treatment she will require or how long she will
potentially be away. I'm sorry Robin but my daughter, Dawn, she has to
be my top priority right now."
"Well it certainly seems like the two of you have thought of almost
purses her lips together as she looks over all the details of Donovan
and Lukas' wedding. She can't believe that her son and his fiancé
are so close to actually getting married; for so many years, she didn't
know if marriage was in the cards for Donovan. Now, they are only a few
weeks away from the wedding day.
"I feel like we just overcame a really big hurdle if we got your
approval," Lukas chuckles back to his future mother in a law. "We
are new at this, so any input would be great."
"Well, just remember that there are no rules for weddings,"
Eva tells him. "You two can do whatever you want really, it's your
"Mom is right," Donovan winks back to him. "But, I think
we've done a good job covering the basis so both of us are represented
in the day."
"What about your person or persons standing up for each of you?"
Eva asks the guys.
"I was thinking of asking Meggan,"
Lukas admits to them. "She's my sister and my best friend."
"Interesting, cause I was thinking of asking Victoria,"
Donovan replies to him as Lukas suddenly tenses up, still uncomfortable
with the fact that Victoria is back from getting treatment for her multiple
"Lukas, are you okay? You suddenly got very pale," Eva notes
back to him.
"I'm fine," Lukas lies to them. "I think having our sister's
stand up for us will be a nice touch."
"I'm glad you feel that way," Donovan tells him, still realizing
that Lukas is having fears about his sister.
"It is nice to get away from the hospital for a bit," Paige
tells Max as they sit at a table across from one another. They've both
been at the hospital a lot lately as they are hopeful that both Cheresa,
and Dawn, pull through but they realized that they needed a break from
"Yea you and I both," Max replies to her. "It's also nice
to have some alone time with you, especially since your parents have come
"I almost can't believe it myself," Paige moves a piece of her
hair behind her ear. "I hate that Cheresa is in this situation but
I guess if one good thing comes from it, it is that my parents are finally
seeing the guy that I have fallen for."
"You mean that?" Max smiles back to her. "You've fallen
Paige slowly nods back to him. "Max, I have fallen in love with you."
Max reaches over and grabs her hand. "I'm so glad because I have
fallen in love with you too."
Paige giggles and leans over and kisses him on the lips. "Now that
we have nothing to worry about, no parents, no secrets, we can just be.
We just need Cheresa and Dawn to get better and everything will be perfect."
Max uneasily gulps back to her knowing that he is still keeping a secret
from her: he and Abby
worked together to break up Paige and Andrew
months ago. He looks at her and realizes that he can't ever tell her the
truth; not after he has everything he has ever wanted.
"We will be perfect Paige," he smiles back to her. "We
still at the hospital?" Albertinah
as she takes a sip of her red wine as they sit across from one another
at a table in the busy restaurant.
Chris slowly nods back to his sister. "Yea, this situation with Cheresa
has really made Trenyce realize that she has a pull to her. I'm not sure
if it's because we have no idea where our child is or what, but it is
"I hope she's not getting too involved," Albertinah tells her
brother. "She shouldn't upset the Lawson's."
"She's not, she's just hanging around trying to see if she can do
anything to help."
"Good," Albertinah replies to him quickly. "I actually
got a request from Cheresa's sister to postpone her midterm."
"Right, Andrew was saying that."
"Yea, I'll give Abby some extra time. I realize that it would be
impossible to focus when your sister is knocking on deaths door."
"How are you enjoying Twin Peaks outside of work? Are you meeting
a lot people? Any men I should know about?" Chris chuckles over to
her. "You always seemed to have some guy waiting for you in Atlanta."
Albertinah takes another sip of her wine as she recalls how she and Andrew
ended up making love recently. In the wake, she told him that it could
never happen again because she could lose her job but if she's honest
with herself, she hasn't been able to stop thinking about the younger
man. He was very eager to impress and please her, which he did numerous
"Earth to Tina," Chris waves his hand back to her. "Where
did you just go? I was only teasing about the men comment."
"I know, I know," Albertinah quickly says back to him. "The
fact is, there was a man but it was a horrible mistake Chris. I have to
forget it ever happened, my entire future depends on it."
Twin Peaks General Hospital
"Andrew, come on, tell me who she is," Abby presses her friend
to as she just realized that Andrew is interested in another girl. Abby
had just finished leaning in and trying to kiss him, hoping that he would
turn to her while she is dealing with so much family drama. Instead, he
pushed her away, again, and told her that they could only be friends.
Abby then asked him if he was seeing someone else and the look on his
face gave it all away; Abby realizes that he is interested in another
Andrew gulps knowing that he can't tell anyone that he slept with Albertinah,
but at the same time, he has been dying to tell someone. The fact that
he hasn't been able to confide in anyone has been eating him alive.
" he stutters. "I can't say anything. I just can't."
"Andrew," Abby pulls him and spins him so he faces her again.
"I'm not going to give this up. Come on, like, you can tell me! We
are supposed to be, like, friends!"
"Fine," Andrew sighs back to her. "But you can't tell anyone
about this. It has to stay between us."
"I pinky swear," Abby smiles back to him. "I won't say
anything, you know that. Now tell me, who is she?"
"Albertinah," Anrdrew whispers back to her as he looks around
to make sure no one heard him. "I am interested in our teacher."
"What?" Abby shrieks in shock. "You slept with our professor?"
"Keep your voice down!"
"Sorry," Abby replies to him. "I'm just
"I know. I was too."
"But she could, like, lose her job," Abby replies to him. "Oh
Andrew, this is a mess. I'm so glad you told me because I can help with
this. And I think I know just how."
slowly moves up to Cheresa, who is laying in her hospital bed breathing
through her ventilator. Brooke covers her mouth to prevent herself from
sobbing at the sight of her daughter in this state. She still can't believe
that somehow Cheresa ended up in the river; she still has so many questions,
like what was Cheresa doing at the pier and why this happened to her daughter.
She realizes that some of the questions she will never get answers too,
but they still linger in her head none the less.
She sits next to Cheresa and grabs her youngest daughter's hand. "Hey,
it's me, your Mom," Brooke lets a tear fall down her cheek. "I
need you know that I'm here and I'm not going anywhere, Cheresa. I'm staying
put until I know that you're going to be okay. So, that's what you have
to do. You have to be okay. You have to get better because I can't face
this world without you. I need you more than you'll ever know. Please,
please come back to me."
She turns her head and sees Greg
pacing back and forth outside of the hospital room. She sighs and wonders
how he is really doing; ever since the truth about her affair with Robbie
came out, he has bene cold and distant with her, which she understands
but right now they really do need one another.
She kisses Cheresa's hand before she lets it rest back down on the bed.
"I'll be here baby," she says before she stands up and walks
towards the door. "Greg," she calls out as she leaves the room.
"You should go in and see her. I think she'd like that."
"I can't believe this is happening," Greg replies to her. "How
did we end up here Brooke? How did we end up with Cheresa fighting for
"I wish I knew," Brooke tells him. "But you're right, this
is all my fault. Everything that is happening right now, it's on me."
"You won't hear me argue that," Greg replies to her. "Now,
if you'll excuse me, I'm going to see my daughter."
"How is Cheresa? I've been trying to give you and your family space
right now," Meggan tells Brad
as they stand face to face in a waiting room of the hospital. Meggan recalls
how she overheard Shane tell the Lawson's that Cheresa had taken a turn
for the worse and they should prepare themselves; Meggan has left Brad
be since that time, but in her mind she realizes that she has to tell
Chris and Trenyce that Cheresa is their biological daughter now before
it is too late; they have a right to know before Cheresa dies.
"No change unfortunately," Brad replies to her. "Shane
still thinks that we should prepare ourselves."
"I'm so sorry. I wish I could do something."
"There is something you can do," Brad looks into her eyes. "You
can promise me you won't say anything about Cheresa. My family is going
through hell right now. We don't need anything else blowing us up."
"I get that," Meggan nods back to her. "But, if your sister
is actually going to die then I have to tell Chris and Trenyce the truth.
I have to tell them that they have a daughter before it's too late."
"Do I have to remind you about Logan?"
"No you don't," Meggan snaps at him. "But that's a choice
I have to make. Chris and Trenyce, they have a right to know that Cheresa
is there's before it's too late. And there's nothing you can do to stop
me, Brad. I'm sorry that this will hurt you, but it's time that Chris
and Trenyce know the truth."
