Twin Peaks Law Courts
Franklin Ross looks into the crowded court room as he prepares to call
the next witness in the custody case of Logan. Jeff just finished his
emotional testimony and now Franklin will hear from Logan's mother, Meggan.
With every testimony, he realizes that his decision is becoming more and
more difficult to make.
Meggan looks at Josh, her lawyer, and he nods back to her trying to reassure
her that she will be okay when she is called to the stand. Meggan then
looks over at Jeff and their eyes lock for a brief moment. Lukas puts
his hands on his sisters shoulders offering support.
"Meggan Richardson, you're the next witness, please be sworn in,"
Franklin announces to everyone, as Meggan slowly walks to the witness
stand. She swears to tell the truth and then sits down.
Josh stands up and looks at his client. "I'm sure today hasn't been
easy for you."
Meggan nods back to him. "It has been a very long day."
"I hope you're okay to answer a couple of questions," Josh tells
her. "We've heard testimony from Brad Lawson and Jeff Claus about
you asking Brad to claim to be Logan's father when you discovered you
"That is true, I did ask Brad to cover. I didn't tell him that Jeff
was the father until much later."
"Can you please explain to everyone why you lied in the first place?"
Josh moves closer to her.
Meggan sighs back to him and looks at Jeff quickly. "Jeff and I had
been married, like he said. Our marriage was invalid when his wife Leah,
who had been presumed dead, turned out to be alive. However, the feelings
Jeff and I had, they didn't just die because Leah was back. However, Leah
and Jeff decided to make their marriage work. After Jeff and I had our
affair, he came to me and told me it was a mistake. He told me that he
had to make his marriage to Leah work," Meggan recalls as she gets
tears in her eyes. "It was devastating to me."
"And you didn't think that a baby would change that for you? This
could have been a way to put a family together?"
Meggan shakes her head back to him. "No, I didn't want to create
anymore drama," she tells him. "Jeff, Leah and I, we had all
been through so much pain and heartbreak, when Leah and Jeff decided to
be a family, I didn't want anything to come between that. I just wanted
to move on and try to forget my own pain. I never meant to cause more
pain by lying. I just thought I was doing the right thing for everyone."
"You were protecting yourself from getting hurt again?" Josh
Meggan wipes a tear from her eye. "I was trying to protect everyone,"
Meggan replies to him. "Look at what has happened since the truth
came out? Jeff is furious; he wants a divorce from Leah and here we are
in court. I believe this all would have happened months ago if I had been
honest from the start."
"No further questions."
"Ms. Kam, any questions?" Franklin asks Jeff's lawyer.
Lois stands up and looks at Meggan. "You were married to Jeff, so
you saw him interact with his daughter, Paige, correct?"
"Based on our own observations of encounters between Jeff and Paige,
was there any indication that Jeff wouldn't have been a good father to
"Of course not," Meggan replies to her. "As I just finished
explaining, this was more of a way to save us all from more heartbreak,"
Meggan tells her before she looks at the Judge. "Please, your honor,
you have to believe me
I am a good mother. I was doing what a mother
should do: try to protect her child from heartache! Please, please, don't
take my baby away from me!"
"Your honor! You can't let this continue!" Lois shouts.
"You're not a mother!" Meggan yells back at her. "I am
a mother! Please don't take Logan from me! Please!"
"Order! Order in the court" Franklin smashes his mallet down
repeatedly until there is an awkward silence in the court room. "One
more outburst and I will hold all of you in contempt! Is that understood?
Now, I think I've heard enough. Court is in recess until I've made my
The Pampa Grill
"I'm sure Paige was stunned to see you back at Robertson Enterprises,"
Cassie chuckles to Max as they sit in the back corner table of the restaurant
together. She picks up her glass of red wine and takes a sip before she
looks back over to son as he just told her that he is back working at
Dominick's company and the same day, Paige also got a job there. She knows
that Max and Paige have hit a rough patch so she is hoping that by working
together they will be able to mend their relationship.
"She was but she also made it pretty clear that she wants nothing
to do with me," Max replies to his mother before he takes a sip of
"How do you feel about that?"
"I think in time she will realize that we mean more to each other
than what she wants to admit," Max tells his mother. "I won't
give up on her, I think we are meant to be together."
"I think you're right," Cassie admits to him. "She's upset
now but she will come around, I have faith in that."
"What about you? Are you still pinning over Jacob?"
Cassie uneasily chuckles back to him. "I can't lie and say I am completely
over him," Cassie admits to her son. "But, my attention is focused
on everyone else who has crossed me. I'm tired of being a doormat to the
citizens of this town."
Max looks back at his mother in surprise. He hasn't heard her talk this
way in a very long time. "What does that mean, Mom? What are you
going to do?"
"Get my revenge," Cassie replies to him immediately before she
takes another sip of her wine. "And, no one will know what hit them
when I'm done with them."
At another table, Eva and Dominick sit across one another enjoying a nice
dinner together. Eva is happy to finally have some time with her husband
as they haven't exactly spent a lot of time together as of late.
"This is nice, a chance for us to catch up," she smiles over
to her husband.
"It is," Dominick nods back to her. "And, I'm sorry that
I've been so busy with Robertson lately. It feels like we have a million
things in the air right now."
"I suppose that is understandable after the Gravity launch last fall,"
Eva replies to him. "I'm sure you're still cleaning up fires from
Dominick takes a sip of his scotch. "Yes, we are. Thank you for being
"I've been married to you long enough to know that you take your
company very seriously," Eva chuckles back to him. "What else
is going on?"
"Well, funny you should ask," Dominick looks back to her. "I've
had this eye to create an anti-aging serum for Robertson. I think it could
be the next big product for the company."
Eva slowly sets her glass of wine back down and looks back at her husband
as she arches her eyebrow. "What? Did I say something wrong? You
don't like the idea?"
"It's not that," Eva waves her hand in the air. "When I
had coffee with Natasha and Victoria the other day, Natasha had mentioned
something similar at Roboto."
Dominick's eyes open wider in surprise. "A similar product? Well,
that can't be a surprise
we are both cosmetics companies."
"It's just a weird coincidence that you and Roboto are planning a
similar product at the same time," Eva tells him. "Especially
since we all know what happened with that damn face cream a few years
back," Eva reminds him of the face cream that Robertson beat Roboto
at releasing, which came to head during the Ice Storm that killed Dominick's
"Trust me, darling, nothing like that will happen this time. I mark
Eva nervously nods back to him. "I hope you're right. I really, really
Twin Peaks Law Courts
"Do you want to go get a drink?" Paige looks at her father as
they stand in hallway of the courthouse. She can tell that Jeff is stressed
out by the events that have taken place throughout the day. It seems like
almost every testimony was filled with drama and tension. Even if Jeff
says no to the drink, Paige feels like she could use one.
"I don't know what I want to do." Jeff admits to her. "Today
"I meant what I said earlier to you," Paige moves closer to
him. "You should find Mom and apologize to her. What you did to her,
serving her divorce papers right after her testimony was pretty low."
"I have been thinking about that," Jeff nods back to her. "And
maybe you're right. Maybe I have been too hard on her. She was clearly
upset by what happened on the stand."
"I think it would be a great way to start to try to mend and heal
from this, don't you?"
"You're a good kid, Paige," Jeff pulls her into a hug. "Thanks
for being here for me."
"I love you Daddy, I wouldn't be anywhere else."
Further down the hall, Lukas looks over at Meggan who is pacing back and
forth. "You're going to burn a hole in the ground."
"I'm just worried," Meggan admits to him. "I have no idea
what the Judge could be thinking."
"It's out of our control now," Lukas tells her. "You did
the best you could. I thought your testimony was really good, Meg. You
countered all of the claims about the lies with good reasoning. And then
you pleaded with the Judge. I don't know what else you could have done."
Meggan looks down the hall and sees Jeff and Paige hugging one another.
She gulps wondering if there's anything she can do to try to get this
to work out for everyone involved.
The Young Mansion; Nicholas' Home
"God, I needed that," Andy lays next to Nicholas in the large
king size bed in the master bedroom in the mansion that Nicholas is living
in. They just finished an intense love making session, which they both
clearly needed. "You were amazing, as usual."
Nicholas looks over at Andy's sweaty chest and smiles to himself. "You
were pretty incredible yourself," he licks his lips and leans over
to kiss Andy on the lips. "I'm glad we have my own place to do this
"You mean, you didn't like hotel sex?" Andy chuckles back to
him as he leans up in the bed.
"I mean, I did," Nicholas replies to him. "And, I like
having sex at your condo too. But, there's so much room in this house.
I feel like we could have sex every day for three weeks and still not
have used every room in this house."
Andy laughs back to him. "There are some rooms I don't want to have
sex in," Andy tells him. "Like your Mom and Dad's room."
Nicholas crunches his face back to him. "Yea, okay, you win there."
"You seem happy here," Andy tells his lover. "And that
makes me happy."
"You know?" Nicholas looks at him. "I am happy. I didn't
think being in my own space would mean so much to me, but it is nice being
here. And, I'm glad you're here. I know that you were apprehensive about
me being here."
"I can't lie to you Nicholas," Andy says back to him. "I
still don't trust your Mom. But, if you're happy then I'm happy you're
Nicholas leans over and kisses him passionately. "I love you so much,"
he tells Andy as their lips part. "I hope we are this happy forever."
"We will be," Andy smiles back to him. "Nothing will tear
Twin Peaks University
"Are you guys ready to go?" Trenyce asks Andrew and Albertinah
as she moves closer to them with Chris following her. Now that the graduation
ceremony is over, Trenyce and Chris want to celebrate with Andrew for
getting his diploma and for Albertinah being awarded the teacher of excellence
award. They have reserved a table at the Pampa Grill and have champagne
waiting on ice for them. "We have champagne waiting for us at the
"That sounds wonderful," Albertinah says as she pulls Chris
into a hug. "You guys are spoiling us."
"It's not every day Andrew graduates from college and you win an
award," Chris tells his sister. "This is worth a celebration."
"I couldn't agree more," Andrew nods back to them. "Okay,
I think we should head out. I don't think anything else is going to happen
"Sounds good," Trenyce says as they all turn to leave the college.
Just then, Abby and the dean, Clark Henderson, emerge from the auditorium.
Andrew spots them and immediately feels beads of sweat start to form on
his forehead as the last time he saw Abby he told her that he wouldn't
be blackmailed into a relationship with her and she vowed that he and
Albertinah would pay.
"I'm glad I caught you before you left," Clark announces to
the group as he glares back at Albertinah and Andrew. "We have to
"What is it Clark?" Albertinah asks him, knowing him well enough
to realize something is wrong. "I thought the ceremony was lovely."
"I bet you did," Clark grits his teeth back to her. "Because
you let me make a fool of myself in front of everyone!"
I'm not sure I understand," Albertinah admits to him.
"You slept with Andrew Pherson!" Clark yells as people around
the group stop and look on in shock and awe. "Sleeping with one of
your students Albertinah? You know that we have very strict policy about
"There has to be some kind of mistake," Chris interjects, stunned
by what he just heard. There's no way Andrew, the man whom he thought
of as a son for so long, was sleeping with his sister.
"No," Andrew admits to everyone, as they all openly gasp. "Albertinah
and I, we did have a fling. But it's over now. We never hurt anyone and
it doesn't change anything, at least it doesn't have too."
"That's where you're wrong," Clark replies to Andrew. "Since
you both broke the rules, I'm revoking your diploma and Albertinah's award.
You two will have to face the consequences of your actions."
"You can't do that! I still graduated fair and square!" Andrew
yells back at him.
"With an A in your history class," Clark smirks back to him.
"I wonder how you got that grade."
"There's no point in fighting him," Albertinah tells Andrew.
"He's right, we have to pay for what we did."
"I can't believe this," Trenyce puts her hand over her face.
"You two can get the hell off my campus before I call security,"
Clark rips the diploma from Andrew's hands and then takes Albertinah's
award from her. "Go!"
"We are leaving," Albertinah yells back to him before she looks
at Chris, Trenyce and Andrew. They all start walking towards the door
until Andrew sees Abby standing, watching everything unfold.
"This was you," he glares at her. "I hate you, Abby! Do
you hear me? I hate you!"
Twin Peaks Law Courts
Meggan stands at the end of the hallway of the courthouse as she wanted
to collect herself before she left for the day. Lukas has already left
after she admitting to him that she would be okay to be alone for a while;
she wants some time to clear her head and try to regroup before the judge
makes his decision.
She looks down the hallway and sees Jeff standing alone, as Paige has
also left. They lock eyes for a moment before she looks away. She bends
down to collect her purse and picks it up and starts to walk towards the
"Tough day, huh?" she says as she gets closer to Jeff.
"Yea, you can say that again."
"Look, Jeff," Meggan looks at him. "I've been thinking
about how we could settle this without one of losing Logan."
"Do you actually think there's a way?" Jeff asks her.
Meggan grabs his hand and locks eyes with him. "Maybe this is the
chance you and I have always been waiting for?" she asks him back.
"When I was on the stand and I was reliving how Leah coming back
ruined our marriage, it reminded me that we never had a chance to truly
be together to see if this could work. Instead of hurting each other anymore,
why not let love win? What do you say?"
Jeff looks back at her in total shock as, in his mind, he was just accepting
everything that Paige was telling him that he should forgive Leah. He
was thinking that maybe he would forgive Leah and try to save his marriage,
now Meggan is asking him to get back together with her.
"You're not saying anything?" Meggan drops his hand feeling
I don't know what to say," Jeff admits to her. "I
guess I have to think about this?"
"Well, don't take too much time," she replies to him. "The
judge will be back soon with his decision. We could prevent one of us
from losing out on Logan. Wouldn't that be the best option?"
