The Pier

Vinny looks out at the frozen river as he thinks about the fact that there was memorial service held for Daisy earlier in the day, despite there being a thick fog in the air. He knows that she is, in fact, alive and well in his house where he is holding her hostage with his twin brother Brett. This was all a part of his plan to get revenge on Daisy for her torrid affair with Tyler all those months ago; and Brett, well it's karma for the time he held Vinny hostage. He knows that he is taking a huge risk being in Twin Peaks right now, but he felt like he needed some air and he didn't think anyone would be on the pier since it is still so cold out.

"No one will ever know that Daisy and Brett are alive," he whispers to himself, thinking about how he arranged their deaths after the avalanche. "Everyone thinks I'm dead and that's how it will stay."

He checks his watch and quickly realizes that he should head back to the mansion before anyone does see him. "The last thing I need is for someone to see me."

***

At the other end of the pier, Victoria slowly walks with a hot chocolate in her hand from the Sugarbowl. She was at the Pampa Grill earlier with Shane where they agreed to end their relationship because they realized that they had very different long term goals. After her pregnancy scare, she realized that she might never be ready to be a mother while Shane realized he would love to have another child. While it is upsetting to her, she realizes that they did the right thing ending their relationship now instead of waiting until they were further in love with one another.

"I will always cherish our time together," she whispers to herself. "It will be difficult to say goodbye to you Shane, but I can do it."

She continues to walk through the heavy fog, she thinks about being at Daisy's memorial earlier in the day. She realizes that life is so short, it's not worth spending it with someone who doesn't have the same values.

"Daisy's death has made me realize that we did the right thing," she continues to tell herself. "We will get over this pain eventually."

As she walks on the pier, she can't help but see someone standing in the fog in front of her. She wonders who else is on the pier in the fog. As she gets closer, she finds herself gasping in shock.

"Vinny?" she calls out, as Vinny turns to face her in surprise that someone has seen him. "Vinny, is that really you? You're alive? You survived the avalanche?"

Chris' Townhouse

"You were very brave today," Andrew tells Trenyce as they stand in the living room of Chris home, while Chris stands at the bar as he opens a bottle of red wine. Andrew knows that the day must have been difficult for Trenyce as she had to say goodbye to Daisy at the memorial service. He is just glad that he is able to be there for Trenyce since he can't imagine what she went through. "You and Tyler, you both did a great job."

"I couldn't agree more," Chris comes in with wine for the guests. "How are you feeling?"

Trenyce takes a deep breath as she thinks about the memorial; she did say goodbye to Daisy, but she is still holding on to hope that Daisy could be alive. She hasn't told anyone that she has hired Brad to look into this just in case the search comes up with nothing.

"I'm doing better than I expected," she admits to them. "I'm glad the day is over. I just hope that Tyler got some kind of closure."

"I think that's what we all need," Andrew replies to them.

"What about you?" Trenyce looks back at Andrew. "You've just gone through something very traumatic with your diploma being taken away from you after your relationship with Albertinah came out."

Andrew shrugs back to her and Chris. "I just can't believe Abby would be so cruel, you know? Everything I worked for, everything Albertinah worked for, all went down the drain because she didn't get her way."

"I spoke to my sister," Chris admits to him. "She says that whatever happened between the two of you is over."

"It has been over for some time," Andrew tells him. "She was adamant that we end our affair before the truth came out. It still sucks though…"

"Did you have feelings for Albertinah?" Trenyce asks him as Andrew takes a sip of his wine wondering if it was more than just sex between the two of them.

"Did?" Andrew looks back at her in surprise. "If I'm being completely real with y'all, I think I still do. She's captivating."

"I know that you think you have feelings for her," Chris tells him. "But I think she's right in wanting to move on. No good can come from this, the scene at the university is proof of that."

Andrew uneasily nods back to him. "Yea, I know. Moving on is just proving to be more difficult than I thought it would be."

Roboto

Cassie sits at the desk in the main office of Roboto typing quickly into her laptop as she works on the serum that she and Kim pitched to Robbie and Natasha. She is still rather surprised that the Calimo siblings supported their idea as they have been pretty against everything she has suggested to them; this is a large part of the reason why is she is seeking revenge on them: she is tired of being their doormat. Natasha and Robbie have done nothing but treat her like a piece of garbage since Kim hired her and since she was involved with Jacob for so long. She should be furious at Jacob but she can't help but still have a soft spot in her heart for him.

"I will make you pay, all of you," she glares at her laptop, losing her train of thought from her report. She looks at a picture of Robbie, Natasha and Bob that sits on the desk. She picks it up and runs her finger of Natasha's face. "You have hurt me for the very last time, Natasha."

Before she can say anything else, her phone starts ringing. She sets the picture back down on the desk and grabs her phone. She rolls her eyes when she sees the number on the display screen. "I thought I told you not to call me," she snaps into the receiver. "If you want this to work, you have to listen to me."

She listens to what the person is telling her and she sighs heavily. "Yes, fine, I can meet you tonight. The usual spot? Perfect, I'll be there in 10 minutes."

The Cascade Apartments; Apartment 507; Craig's Home

Lukas steps off the elevator and moves into the hallway of the apartment building in which Craig lives as he moves closer to Craig's front door. Lukas was with Meggan following Daisy's memorial service when he got a text from Craig asking him to come see him; Lukas was going to ignore it and head home to see Donovan but he realized that Craig is still having nightmares about being in the cave after the avalanche. He realized that this was a great way to see how he was doing and if had any more memories about being in the cave; Lukas knows that Craig can't remember what happened in the cave: they had sex, which Lukas only did to save his life.

He takes a deep breath and knocks on Craig's front door. Craig slowly opens the door and looks at Lukas back. "Thanks for coming by," Craig says allowing Lukas into his home.

"Of course," Lukas replies to him. "I was curious to see how you are doing, and your message was a little cryptic about what was up with you."

"Yea, I needed to see you in person," Craig tells him as he locks eyes with Lukas. "What we have to talk about, it couldn't happen over text."

Lukas arches his eyebrow. "Okay? What's up?"

"I remember," Craig replies to him. "I remember everything that happened in the cave."

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

"What a day," Meggan says as she puts her feet up on the coffee table in the living room of the house she shares with Lukas and Donovan. Having gone to the memorial service for Daisy, Meggan feels emotionally wore out. She wants nothing more to just have a relaxing evening with Jeff.

"I'm sorry I missed the memorial," Jeff replies to her as he moves over and sits next to her. "I had a meeting with my lawyer about my divorce that I couldn't miss."

"I don't mind," Meggan tells him. "It was nice to leave Logan with you instead of taking him. A memorial is no place for a child his age."

"How was it? Saying goodbye to your sister, I mean?"

Meggan shrugs back to him. "Daisy and I were never that close," she reveals to Jeff. "Mostly because she didn't find out Frederick was her father until much later. And then, he was killed … I know we were family but it just felt like we were distant."

"That's understandable," Jeff tells her. "I'm still sorry for your loss."

"I'm so glad that you're here," Meggan admits to him. "It's nice that we are able to be together like this again after everything that happened."

"It really is," Jeff says back to her. "Logan is the most important thing in our lives now, that's all that matters."

"Do you mind if I ask you a question?" she asks him back as Jeff nods to her. "What made you come to the decision to be with me? When I suggested it to you, you admitted that you needed time to think about it."

Jeff uneasily looks back at her as he thinks back to heading to Leah's house and he caught her in bed with Cory. Following that, he went to Meggan and told her that they should be together.

"Did you hear me?" Meggan pokes Jeff as he started to day dream.

"Yea, sorry, of course I did," he bites his lower lip. "I did just that … I thought about it all night and realized what you said was right; we should be together and raising our son together. This is where I am meant to be."

Meggan squeezes his hand after she grabs it. "I couldn't agree more."

The Pampa Grill

Robbie moves into the restaurant looking to grab a drink as he was working rather late at Roboto. He left Cassie alone at the office and now he feels like he needs something to help him calm down before he heads back to the mansion. He looks over at the bar and sees Leah sitting by herself. He immediately arches his eyebrow as he recalls how he got a text from Leah a few weeks earlier asking to meet her for a drink; however, when he arrived at Barcode, there was no sign of Leah and he hasn't heard from her since. He finds himself moving towards his ex-wife.

"Hey stranger," he says as he sits next to her and orders a beer.

"Robbie, you startled me," Leah admits to him. "I guess I was deep in thought."

"Apparently," he uneasily chuckles back to her. "I've been texting you and haven't heard back."

"I know, I'm sorry. I've had a million things to do."

"It's just…it's not like you to ghost someone," Robbie replies to her. "That night, you asked me to meet you at Barcode and when I got there, you were nowhere to be seen."

Leah shuts her eyes as she thinks about how after the custody hearing for Logan, she went to have a drink. She was lonely so she texted Robbie asking him to join her, but shortly after, Cory arrived and they ended up in bed together. The next morning, they agreed that it was a mistake and they would only be friends.

"I wouldn't call it ghosting you," Leah tells him. "I didn't hear back from you so I assumed you weren't coming. I must have left before you got there. It was an honest mistake."

Robbie uneasily nods back to her. "That's fair but why the silent treatment since then?"

Leah picks up her martini and takes a sip of it. "Like I said, I've been busy. Jeff has decided to divorce me," she tells him. "I've had a lot going on."

"Okay, as long as you and I are cool."

Leah turns to him and puts a smile on her face even though she hates lying to him. "Of course we are okay," she says. "And look, we are having that drink together now."

Robbie chuckles back to her. "That's very true. Cheers to us getting that drink."

The Pier

Vinny and Victoria exit their embrace as she continues to be stunned to see him alive and well. "I still can't believe this," she admits to him. "We all thought you had died."

"I know," Vinny replies to her quickly, hoping that he is able to lie his way through this encounter. The last thing he needed was for someone to see him and now his ex-wife is standing in front of him. "And, that's my own doing."

"But why? Why wouldn't you tell everyone that you survived?"

"Because," Vinny tells her, knowing that he has to cover his tracks. "I was not exactly everyone's favorite person leading up to the avalanche. Daisy and Tyler were not happy with me, my brother had left town … I just thought it would be easier for everyone if they thought I was dead."

"Where have you been staying?"

"At my family mansion outside of town," Vinny says back to her. "I know you that you're friendly with Daisy and Tyler but if you could keep this to yourself, I'd appreciate that."

Victoria shakes her head back to him. "You don't know?"

"Know what?"

"Daisy," Victoria starts to tell him. "She is believed to be dead from the avalanche. We had a memorial for her today."

"My God," Vinny covers his mouth acting surprised. "I can't believe she's gone."

"Maybe she's not … if you survived, maybe Daisy did too, somehow?"

Vinny shakes his head back to her. "I got off the mountain before the avalanche struck. If Daisy was on the mountain, there's no way she would have survived. I saw the avalanche, Daisy must be dead."

Victoria pulls Vinny into another hug. "I'm just so relieved that you're okay. We've been through so much together, Vinny. I am glad you're okay."

"You might be the only person in town to say that," he uneasily tells her as they continue to hug. He hopes that he was able to cover his tracks well enough with Victoria because the last thing he needs is for Victoria to start asking more questions.

Chris' Townhouse

"Now that Andrew is gone, you can be honest with me," Chris tells Trenyce as they sit next to each other on the sofa. "How are you really doing?"

"I'm fine," Trenyce replies to him. "I mean, as well as to be expected."

"I wish Cheresa had been there today," he admits to her. "It would have been nice to have our daughter's support."

"She will come around," Trenyce tells him. "Speaking of Cheresa, the last time we saw her…"

"She asked us about the restraining order," Chris is reminded of their conversation at the Sugarbowl where Cheresa asked them if they had organized the restraining order against Dawn.

"Yea," Trenyce looks over at him. "You said you had nothing to do with it. Is that the truth?"

"Why would you question me?" Chris looks back at her with intent.

"I don't know?" Trenyce admits to him. "It was just something about the delay in your response, it's like you were trying to find the right words to use."

Chris stands up from the sofa and runs his hand through his hair. "Okay, I'll tell you the truth," he says back to her hoping that she will understand what he is about to tell her. "A few weeks earlier, Greg asked me to meet him on the pier."

"Why did Greg Lawson want to see you?"

"He told me he didn't like that Dawn was in Cheresa's life," Chris admits to her. "And, I happened to agree. So, together we decided that it would be good to file the restraining order."

"You did what?" Trenyce gasps as she stands up from the sofa and looks at Chris. "How could you do this?"

Chris shrugs back to her. "I thought we were doing the right thing! I didn't think Cheresa would be so upset."

"Upset? She's livid! And you just made things even worse by lying to her," Trenyce yells at him. "How in the hell is she ever going to want to have a relationship with us, if you're lying to her!"

"Trey, let me explain…" Chris protests to her as she moves away from him.

"No, you've done more than enough for one night," Trenyce turns and spits back to him before she turns and grabs her coat. Shortly after, Chris hears the front door of the townhouse slam shut.

He shuts his eyes and sighs heavily. "God, what have I gotten myself into?"

Twin Peaks Storage Warehouses

On the east side of town, there is a storage locker warehouse where the citizens of Twin Peaks can store some of their belongings. Cassie waits outside a storage locker rubbing her hands together in the chilly February air. She is waiting for her partner in crime to arrive so they can talk about their plan to get revenge on Robbie and Natasha.

"Where are you?" she whispers to herself as she looks at her watch. "You said you'd be right over."

"I'm here," a voice calls out from behind her. "Sorry to keep you waiting."

Cassie turns around and sees Dominick slowly walk into the light under the storage locker. "Now, what's the next step of our plan? Because I need the Calimo's to pay just as much as you do."

The Cascade Apartments; Apartment 507; Craig's Apartment

"I…I don't know what you're talking about," a panicked Lukas turns his back to Craig, who just admitted to him that he remembers everything that happened in while they were trapped in the cave. Of course, Lukas is now worried that this means that Craig remembers that they had sex, which could hurt his marriage if the truth comes out.

"You can save it Lukas!" Craig raises his voice back to him. "I kept having these dreams of being in the cave and slowly they turned into sexual dreams. I kept dreaming that I was a bottom and it didn't make sense to me."

"You had a fever," Lukas turns back to him feeling his heart race inside his chest. "This could all be in your head!"

"No," Craig spits back to him. "I went to a doctor, he said I had torn glands. I was so sore like I had bottomed, Lukas!"

"You're a top Craig," Lukas reminds him. "This is all a misunderstanding."

"I remember!" Craig yells at him as they lock eyes. "You raped me, Lukas! I remember that you topped me in the cave!"
