The Pampa Grill
Andrew walks into the restaurant and immediately looks towards the bar
as he doesn't want to have a full table, where he sees Albertinah standing
as she appears to be waiting for her takeout order to arrive. He sighs
as he looks at his teacher; the last time he saw her, she told him that
they couldn't have anything more than just teacher-student relationship
as she was scared she would lose her job, especially since Abby threatened
to go to the school board. He hasn't had the chance to discuss anything
with Abby yet as she has been so focused on Cheresa, but he knows that
he can convince her to not reveal to anyone what she knows about him and
Despite her recent protests, Andrew finds himself walking towards his
lover. "Hey," he manages to say to her. "Grabbing some
"I am," Albertinah doesn't look over at Andrew. She wishes he
hadn't come to see her; it's hard enough to stay away from him as it is;
seeing him makes it more difficult. Despite her telling him they can't
be together, she can't get Andrew out of her mind. "Chris and Trenyce
are still at the hospital, I thought I'd take them some food."
"That's nice of you," he nods back to her. "I still can't
believe that they are Cheresa's biological parents. I certainly didn't
see that coming."
"None of us did," Albertinah replies to him. "But, I thought
it was the least that I could do for them. They have been through so much
"We all have," Andrew tells her. "Including us."
"There is no us, Andrew."
"I know," he moves closer to her. "I just want you to know
that I am going to talk to Abby. She won't tell anyone anything, I promise
you that. She will listen to me."
"Good," Albertinah finally makes eye contact with him. "Because,
no one can ever know what happened between us. And, I meant what I said,
whatever we had, it is over."
"I wish it wasn't."
"This is how it has to be," Albertinah remains firm with him.
"You have to understand that."
"I'm trying," he nods back to her. "I just have to figure
out a way to get you out of my head."
"So, Dawn's meeting went well?" Robin asks Adam as they sit
across from one another at a table in the restaurant. Robin knows that
Adam has been so focused on his daughter; she just hopes that now that
things are seemingly calming down they can get back to planning their
wedding. She still wants nothing more than to marry her fiancé
so they can start their lives together.
Adam nods back to her thinking about how Dawn had her first meeting to
help her with her addiction to her anti-depressants. He still knows that
Dawn has a long way to go before she is really out of the woods, however.
"She said it was good, yea," Adam replies to her. "She
still has a lot of work to do but I'm hopeful that she is on the right
"I'm so glad to hear that," Robin purses her lips together.
"It is high time that this family start to mend and get back to normal
"I couldn't agree more with you," Adam smiles back to her. "I
just hope Dawn doesn't suffer any setbacks. Addiction is a hard thing
"She has you and Helen
in her corner," Robin reminds him. "She will get through this.
We all will. And, now that she is on the mend, we should finish planning
our wedding. Adam, I want to marry you. And, I think a wedding would be
the good news that we all need."
Adam shakes his head back to her. "I told you Robin, right now is
not the time for this wedding. I have to be there for Dawn, completely.
Until I know my daughter is okay, we can't get married. And, that's the
end of this discussion. I really don't want to have to tell you this anymore."
Robin groans back to him. "Well, I'm tired of being your afterthought!
I get that you have shit going on with your family, but we all do. That
doesn't mean that we have to put our lives on hold! I'm getting so tired
of always coming second with you."
"I won't apologize for putting Dawn first."
"And before Dawn, it was Helen since she was buried alive,"
Robin sighs back to him. "You have to make up your mind about whether
or not you actually want me in your life, because from where I stand,
you don't want or need me. And I won't wait around for you."
Before Adam can reply, Robin stands up and storms away from him. He sighs
heavily wondering why she got so upset with him; all he said was that
he didn't think a wedding was right for the moment. Now, everything is
The Black House; Helen & Dawn's Home
"I know you had another meeting today," Helen sits next to Dawn
on the sofa in their house as she recalls Dawn tells her the schedule
of her meetings to help her get over her addiction. Helen just hopes that
Dawn is starting to feel better about things. "How did it go?"
Dawn takes a sip of her tea as she thinks about her most recent meeting.
She has been forced to open up about a lot of the painful experiences
she has had to endure the last couple years, from being raped by Jonah,
to losing her child, to Barbara's death and even Helen being buried alive.
All of these factors contributed to her starting to take her antidepressant
pills more and more regularly.
"It was good," Dawn finally replies to her mother. "It
is painful relieving some of the events of the last couple of years but
it is good for me to talk about it, you know? I need to understand what
happened in order for me to get through it all."
"I'm so proud of you," Helen puts her hand on her daughter's
leg. "This couldn't have been easy for you to get through but you're
doing it with such dignity."
"This has been the hardest thing I've had to go through because I
have to do it alone," Dawn replies to her. "I know that you
and Dad are with me, but I am doing this by myself."
Helen nods back to her. "I heard that Cheresa is doing better as
well. That news must make you feel happier?"
"I feel so relieved," Dawn admits to her. "I have been
so worried about her. If anything had happened to her, it would have been
"We have to think about that now," Helen tells her. "It
is some good news that we have really needed."
"You know what else would be great," Dawn looks into Helen's
eyes. "After everything that has happened, it would be nice if this
family could be united again."
"We are united, Dawn," Helen replies to her quickly. "Your
father and I are standing by you no matter what."
"I get that," Dawn says back to her. "But I want my family
back together. I want you and Dad to be a couple again; I want us to be
a family like we used to be."
Caldwell's Mountain Ski Lodge
"This waiting is really starting to drive me crazy," Eva paces
back and forth in the corner of the ballroom as she waits for some kind
of news about the chances of there being an avalanche on Empress Mountain.
She hopes that the warnings of the avalanche do not come into fruition
because people purchased some Gravity merchandise and went skiing after
the release of Robertson Enterprises latest line, including Lukas, Craig
"You have to try to stay calm," Victoria tells her mother, as
she comes up to her and pulls her into a hug. "We don't know anything
for certain yet, so let's try to not assume the worse?"
"Yes, you're right," Eva looks at her once they exit the embrace.
"Let's talk about something else? It would be good to keep our mind
off this disaster, if it happens."
Victoria chuckles back to her. "What would you like to discuss?"
"How are things with you and Shane now that you're back?"
Victoria looks back at her mother in surprise. She quickly recalls how
when she was apologizing to Helen for burying her alive while her alter
egos were in control, Helen also indicated that maybe Victoria and Shane
would rekindle a romance. Victoria really hasn't given it much thought,
however, as she has just been focused on staying healthy.
"Things are the same," Victoria tells her. "Shane and I
are friends. Nothing more, nothing less."
"I see," Eva nods back to her. "I think that is wonderful.
before you got sick, I suspected the two of you were reconnecting.
Now that you're back, I just assumed that you might pick up where you
left off. It could be good for you to date again."
Victoria uneasily smiles back to her. "I will keep that in mind,
mother. I really will."
"I get that you're upset with me, I really do," Leah looks over
at Jeff, who just finished telling her that he won't be able to forgive
her for lying to her about Logan's paternity for over a year. Leah can
understand why her husband is so upset with her but he wishes that he
would at least try to understand her perspective. "But, Jeff, I damnit,
I forgave you for sleeping with Meggan in the first place. I didn't have
to do that. But, I understood and just had hoped you would be that understanding
Jeff sighs back to her as he feels his blood boil. He doesn't understand
why Leah can't realize that what she did was wrong; keeping his son from
him was the most hurtful move Leah could have done to him.
"Had you not forgave me for sleeping with Meggan, I would have understood,"
Jeff replies to her. "But the fact is, you did forgive me. You keeping
my son away from me for over a year is nothing something I can forgive.
It is the worst thing you could have done to me!"
"So, our marriage is over? You're going to end everything we have
because of one mistake?"
"One mistake? It's a pretty big mistake, Leah!"
"I don't want to fight with you about this," Leah waves her
hand in the air. "Just know that I will do anything in my power to
save our marriage!"
"You son of a bitch," a voice calls out from behind Jeff. He
turns and sees Meggan standing behind him. Her hand finds his cheek as
she slaps him hard. "How could you?"
"Meggan, what the hell are you doing?" Leah asks her in shock
as Jeff puts his hand over his cheek.
"Your husband," Meggan glares over at Leah. "He just had
me served with custody papers. He wants full custody of my son."
"You're damn straight I do," Jeff sneers at her. "You purposely
kept him from me; there's not a judge in this world that you would you
keep a child after you kept him from his father. I want my son and I will
get him, even if it's the last thing I do."
"If you want a fight, Jeff, you're going to get one," Meggan
looks back at him. "I won't lose my child to you. I refuse too."
"You two look so happy together," Donovan tells Andy and Nicholas
as they stand with Tyler sipping some champagne while they wait for Donovan
and Lukas' wedding reception to begin, which should be soon since the
guests that went skiing should be coming back soon. "I'm thrilled
you two are finally together."
"Thanks," Andy smiles back to his friend. "We are pretty
happy ourselves. After everything we've been through, it's nice to just
be for a while. Like you and Lukas."
"I still can't believe that I am a married man!"
Tyler chuckles back to him. "You better start believing it or your
husband might not like it!"
Donovan chuckles back to him. "I wonder where Daisy and Lukas are?
It seems like it is getting late. I would have thought that they would
have been back by now."
"I'm glad you're all together," Dominick announces to the group
as he comes up to them with Eva and the front desk clerk behind him. "I
have news and you all need to hear it from me."
"What is it Dad?" Tyler asks him. "What's going on?"
"Right after the guests went to the ski hill, we got word that there
was an avalanche warning."
"What? My God," Nicholas gasps back to him.
"It's just a warning, right?" a panicked Donovan replies to
him. "There wasn't an avalanche, was there?"
"I'm afraid there was," Dominick nods back to them. "And,
it appears to be bad. We have no idea if anyone survived."
"No, Daisy is on that mountain!" Tyler yells back in horror.
"And so is Lukas," Donovan gasps. "My husband was caught
in an avalanche?"
