The Pampa Grill

Jeff sits at the bar in the restaurant with a beer in front of him. He desperately needed a drink after the day he had in court where he fought for custody of Logan. Leah, Brad, Meggan and himself all had to take the stand and recount many difficult moments leading up to the court case itself, which include Jeff being in the dark about the child's paternity for over a year. He can't stop thinking about Paige's discussion with him about Leah, however. After Leah testified, she was visibly upset and that is when Jeff threw divorce papers at her. Paige told him that Leah was trying to him; now he is starting to think that his daughter is right, he has been unfair to his wife. She did admit that she lied about Logan's paternity, which helped Jeff's case.

"Maybe Paige has been right this entire time," he whispers to himself as he takes another sip of his beer. "Maybe I have been too hard on Leah. Maybe it's not too late to save our marriage."

He takes another drink of his beer as he recalls Meggan telling him after the trial that this could be their chance at being together toon. "I know that's what Meggan wanted but I could save my marriage and get my son; maybe that's how this is supposed to play out?"
He finishes his beer and throws some money on the bar before he stands up and quickly walks out of the restaurant knowing that he has to find Leah and talk to her.

The Pier

Andrew looks out at the frozen river as he tries to calm himself down as he is still reeling from everything that happened at the graduation. After he got his diploma, he was celebrating with Albertinah, Chris & Trenyce when the dean approached him and confronted him and Albertinah about their affair. Andrew lost his diploma and Albertinah lost her award of excellence by the dean learning the truth; Andrew then realized that Abby is the one who told Clark the truth about their affair. This was because Andrew refused to be blackmailed into a relationship with her; he still can't believe that Abby cost him his future. He never actually believed that Abby would tell the truth but now that she has, nothing will ever be the same again.

"Damn you," he whispers as he continues to look at the frozen water. "Damn you straight to hell."

"I'm glad I found you," a voice says to Andrew. "It's freezing out here, let's go get a drink and talk?"

Andrew turns around and sees Abby standing there. He laughs back at her stunned by her nerve. "You've got to be kidding me! You want to go get a drink? After everything you just pulled?"

"I warned you what would happen Andrew," Abby replies to him as she defends herself. "You have no one to blame for this but yourself."

"You're a crazy bitch," Andrew spits back to her. "Because you didn't get your way, you had to ruin my life and Albertinah's! Who does that?"

"I think now that everything is out in the open we could move past this, don't you?"

"NO!" Andrew yells back at her. "In case you missed the memo I gave you at the university, I hate you Abby! I never want to see you again, get that through your head!"

"Andrew…"

"Shut up, Abby," Andrew says before he storms off. "UGH!"

Abby pulls her coat tighter around her to keep herself warm as she fights the tears in her eyes. She hopes that she hasn't lost Andrew forever but she has never seen him this mad before.

Chris' Townhouse


"I need a drink," Chris announces as he moves to the bar in his living room and pours himself a scotch. "I can't believe that Andrew was with my sister!"

"I know, neither can I," Trenyce paces back and forth with a glass of wine in her hand. They are both still reeling from the bomb that was dropped at the graduation of Andrew's affair with Albertinah. "What do you think will happen now?"

"I wish I knew," Chris takes a sip of his drink. "All I know is that I'm stunned and I think my sister owes me an explanation."

Before Trenyce can reply, the doorbell rings. Trenyce looks at Chris before she moves to the front door. "Albertinah," Trenyce gasps at the sight of Chris' sister. "Please come in."

"I couldn't stay away," Albertinah tosses her coat on the back of the sofa. "I couldn't leave things the way we did."

"You can start explaining anytime," Chris grits his teeth together. "How the hell could you sleep with Andrew of all people?"

"It just happened," Albertinah tries to stay calm. "Neither one of us meant for it to happen. But it did and here we are."

"Is that all you have to say for yourself?" Chris gasps back to her. "Andrew was your student!"

"You don't think that I know that?" Albertinah finally yells back at her brother. "Why do you think I was so desperate to get the hell out of this town? I know exactly what I did."

"God, this is a mess," Chris tells her. "A horrible mess."

"It was a mistake," Albertinah moves closer to her brother. "What Andrew and I did was a terrible mistake and now, we are both paying for it."

The Tower's; Floor Eight; Victoria's Condo

"God, the waiting is killing me," Victoria looks over at Shane as they sit side by side on the sofa with her stop watching on her IPhone counting up to 10 minutes. She has taken her home pregnancy test to see if she is carrying Shane's child and now they are waiting to see the results. She feels so nervous because deep down she knows that she's not ready to be a mother. "How is it possible that ten minutes feels like a life time?"

Shane uneasily chuckles back to her. "You are fine, we are fine. We will get through this together, Vic. I dunno, I'm kind of excited. Aren't you?"

"I… I don't know," she admits to him. "This is all happening so quickly. I feel like I'm in a whirlwind."

"Hey," Shane pulls her hands into his and looks into her eyes. "No matter what happens, we are in this together, okay? I'm right here and I am not leaving your side."

Before Victoria can reply, the buzzer goes. "It's been ten minutes," Victoria slowly picks up her phone and stops the watch. "I guess I'll go read the results."

She nervously walks towards the washroom while Shane stands up and runs his hand through his hair. He turns around when he sees Victoria return from the washroom.

"So…" Shane starts to ask her.

"It's negative," Victoria reveals to him, breathing a huge sigh of relief. "I am not pregnant."

Shane feels his heart sink in his chest but he moves up and pulls Victoria into a hug. "I'm sorry I got your hopes up," she whispers to him. "But I do think that this is for the best."

Shane uneasily nods back to her. "Yea, I guess so."

Roboto

Cassie slowly walks over to the bar in the main office at Roboto and pours herself a vodka with soda water. She slowly takes a sip of it as she thinks of her plan to get revenge on those who have hurt her; namely Robbie, Natasha and Shane. She knows that she is tired of being a doormat with the people in Twin Peaks and she has vowed to make them all pay.

"I should be mad at Jacob too," she scolds herself before she takes a sip of her vodka. "But deep down, I still love him. Maybe this plan could also be a way for me to get him back in my life. Get his parents out of my life but get him back in my bed," she chuckles to herself.

"I will win," she looks out the window before she hears her cell phone start to ring. She quickly moves over to the desk and picks it up.

"I thought I told you that I would call you," she says into the phone sternly. "Yes, everything is going accordingly to our plan but you have to understand that you can't be calling me. If we are going to do this, you have to play by my rules, is that understood? Good, now I'll be in touch when it's time for the next phase of our plan."

She hangs up the phone and takes another sip of her vodka. "I hate relying on someone but I can't carry this out on my own," she whispers to herself. "They will have no idea what hit them when I'm done."

The Richardson Estate; Meggan, Lukas & Donovan's Home

"Meg, you have to try to calm down," Lukas tries to tell his sister, who continues to pace back and forth in the living room of their estate. He knows that she is worried about the custody hearing that took place but he wants her to try to settle down so she can get some rest as it is very likely that the Judge will come back with a decision the next day or the day after.

"I don't know how," Meggan admits to him as she looks at him with worry written all over her face. "You were there today, it was horrible."

"It wasn't great for Jeff either," Lukas replies to her. "In a custody case, there really isn't any winner."

"I know," Meggan nods back to him. "That's why I did something after you left the courthouse."

"What did you do? God Meggan, please tell me you didn't do anything irrational!"

Meggan shoots him an upsetting look. "I'm scared that I'm going to lose my son! I just made Jeff an offer trying to make sure that doesn't happen."

"What kind of offer?"

"I told him that maybe this was a sign that he and I should finally be together," Meggan admits to her brother. "Maybe this is our chance at finally being a family."

"Wow," Lukas shakes his head back to her. "What did he say?"

"He was surprised," she replies to him. "I think he has to think about it. Which I get, I don't blame him. It came out of the blue."

"Do you really love Jeff?" Lukas asks her. "After everything that has happened, do you still love him?"

Meggan covers her mouth as tears fill my eyes. "God help me but yes," she admits to him. "A part of me has always loved Jeff."

Lukas stands up and pulls her into a hug. "Then I hope he accepts your offer," he whispers into her ear. "Because you're right, that would solve a lot of problems."

The Claus House; Jeff &Leah's Home

Jeff unlocks the front door to the house he has shared with Leah for years and quickly moves inside. He turns on a light in the living room but doesn't see his wife in the room.

"Leah?" he calls out desperate to find her as he wants to tell her that he still loves her and that he wants their marriage to work. "Leah, where are you?"

He stops and looks at his watch and realizes that it's late. "Maybe she went to bed already," he tells himself as he moves to the stairs and starts to climb them.

He moves closer to the bedroom door but he stops when he hears a noise. "Oh God," Leah moans out in delight. "Yes, Cory…right there, please don't stop, oh Cory…"

Jeff feels the blood drain from his face as the sounds he is hearing. He moves closer to the door as he starts to hear a man grunt out in pleasure. He opens the door slightly and sees Cory and Leah in bed making passionate love to one another.

"Please don't stop Cory," Leah moans out as Cory continues to thrust into her, as Jeff's eyes are unable to stop looking at what is unfolding in front of him.
