Roboto

Kim scurries back and forth through the main office of the Roboto as she is trying to work on some files for the company. She and the entire team at the company have been working overtime trying to come up with a great new product that will help create massive revenue to help offset the money that was stolen from them by Cassie. The fact that Max's inheritance came back legitimate means that they might never see those stolen funds again.

Just as she is about to sit behind the desk to focus on some files, she hears the office door open and Will appears.

"We need to talk," Will tells her as he moves into the office as he closes the door behind himself. "It is important."

"It will have to be quick," Kim replies to him. "I have a million things to do today."

"It's about Eva," he admits to her. "She told me to stop waiting for her. I think I have lost her for good."

"Oh Will," Kim moves over to the bar and pours herself a cup of water. "I'm sorry that you're upset by this but, if I am honest, I don't know that you ever had her in the first place. Her heart has always been with Dominick."

"This wasn't part of the plan," Will sighs back to her. "I was supposed to seduce her and she was going to fall back in love with me, Kim. It doesn't seem fair that everything around me is imploding but I'm still left with nothing."

"I can appreciate that and I am sorry that you are hurt by this," Kim replies to him quickly. "I never considered your feelings in any of this and for that I am sorry."

"I just don't know what to do," he continues to tell her. "I still care for her with everything thing I have but …"

"But, she wants her marriage?" Kim finishes his sentence. "The only advice I could possible offer to you, Will, is to be there for her in case Dominick does file for divorce. But, I wouldn't wait around forever either. Eva might mean what she is saying to you, that she has no intention of giving up her marriage but if her marriage ends up working, you have to be prepared for that too."

Will sighs back to her as he runs his hand through his hair. "Yea, I just don't know how much more rejection I can handle from her. That's what I am struggling with."

Kim moves up to him and pulls him into a hug. "I am sorry for this, Will. I truly am."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

"Once you sign there," Dr. Rodriguez points to a line on some papers to Robin and Shane. "You will be able to take Dominique home."

Robin looks over at Shane with a smile on her face as she takes the doctor's pen and signs her name. She passes the form over to Shane, who then signs next to Robin. They almost can't believe that they day has finally arrived: the day Dominique is getting discharged from the hospital. All of their hopes and prayers are finally answered because for a while it was very touch and go about their daughter's health.

"Great," Dr. Rodriguez looks back at them. "Now, it is very important that you continue to monitor Dominque's progression. If she starts to run a fever or appears to have any difficulty breathing, it is key that you come back to the hospital. She's made good progress but she is still very small. "

"Don't worry about that," Robin replies to the doctor. "I don't plan on letting her out of my sight!"

"Good, the nurse is almost finished preparing her. Then you guys are off."

"Thank you again, doctor, for everything," Shane shakes her hand before she scurries off. He turns his attention to the mother of his child. "I can't believe that this is really happening."

"I know me either," Robin pulls him into a hug. "Our daughter is healthy enough to go home! It really is a miracle."

"I guess that leaves one question remaining," Shane looks back at her as their eyes lock as they exit their embrace. "Where are you going to be living? Are you coming back with home with me? Or are you going to Adam's?"

The Sugarbowl

"It was nice of Paige and Jacob to stop by and see how we are doing," Andrew tells Abby as they sit in the back corner booth of the coffeehouse together, as Paige and Jacob walk away from them. Their friends had seen them in the corner when they walked in so they said hi and asked how they were coping since they know that they are still grieving the loss of Sonny, and for Abby the loss of Brad.

"You know what is interesting," Abby takes a sip of her tea. "Is that you realize how many people care about you when you are going through some sort of crisis. Ever since Sonny passed, I've had so many people ask me how I am doing."

"Of course," Andrew nods back to her. "Surprisingly, I get the same."

"Why are you surprised by that? You are Sonny's father."

"I know," Andrew agrees with her. "But, I don't know, considering everything that happened and how I was pressing you for adoption, I sometimes still feel like I don't deserve to be grieving Sonny."

"You can't think that way," Abby quickly tells him. "You and I are Sonny's parents and we always will be. No one can take that away from us."

Andrew uneasily nods back to her. "I am so grateful that I have Albertinah. She has been my rock throughout all of this."

Abby sighs back to him as she thinks about the fact that Andrew is back with Albertinah and not with her; she had hoped that Sonny would have brought them together but it hasn't happened. Now, they are only friends as Sonny is gone.

"So, you two are doing good then?" she finally asks him back.

"Albertinah and I?" Andrew asks her quickly. "Yea, we are really good. We have never been better."

"Great," Abby forces a smile on her face even though she is upset with what he has told her. "I'm happy you have that support Andrew, I really am."

"I don't mean to upset you," Andrew admits to her. "You will find someone in due time. I know you will."

Abby nods back to him. "And, in the meantime I will continue to go see baby Olly. He is the one that makes me happy and comforts me."

"You've seen Olly again?"

"Yup, the day I found out Brad passed away, I went over to see him," Abby admits to him. "I still can't explain why I have such a connection to him but I do."

"Just don't get too attached to him," Andrew warns her. "That is still Lukas and Donovan's child."

"I know," she bites her lower lip. "I wish I knew the connection I felt to him but I can't explain it. All I know is that he really does make me feel better right now."

"It was nice to see Andrew and Abby out and about," Paige puts a package of sugar into her coffee and stirs it while Jacob puts a lid on his latte at the coffee bar. "I have been thinking about Abby a lot since she is mourning both Sonny and Brad."

"Losing a child is likely the hardest thing anyone would have to go through," Jacob agrees with her. "I just hope that they are coping okay."

"They appear to be," Paige tells him as she takes a sip of her coffee. "Grief is a process. It's like Max, I'm sure he will slowly get back to a new sense of normalcy."

"I still can't believe that Simona Lopez didn't uncover anything funny about his inheritance. I was sure that Cassie stole those funds from Roboto and Robertson Enterprises."

"Well," Paige replies to him as they start to move to the exit. "Now, that we know that Max is inheriting legit money, we have to let it go. Max has every right to that money from his Mom. You and your family really need to drop it now, Jacob."

"My family?" Jacob asks her back quickly. "Your grandfather is just as eager to get back the money he is missing too, Paige. Don't put this all on me."

"I'm not!" Paige snaps at him. "I'm just saying, Max is going through a hard time, we should try to give him some respect right now."

"Ugh, how could I forget, he saved our lives," Jacob rolls his eyes back to her. "I just think he's been super annoying with all of this."

"Can we agree to disagree please?" Paige stops and looks at him. "I don't want to fight with you about this anymore."

"Fine," he says coldly to her.

"Fine," Paige quickly snaps back at him. "Let's get to the office."

The Pampa Grill

Natasha finishes her coffee and gathers her various files that she was working on while having breakfast at the restaurant and places them in her bag. She is now going to head off to Roboto to try to see if her and the team can come up with a product that will help recover some of the lost monies form Cassie.

As she collects her items, she can't help but notice Max sitting alone at the bar. Natasha lets out a large sigh as she recalls the previous day when Simona advised her and the Robertson's that Max was not inheriting any of the stolen funds from Roboto or Robertson Enterprises.

After she grabs her purse, Natasha finds herself walking towards the younger man. "Max," she announces as she arrives at the bar. "I'm glad I ran into you."

"Are you?" Max asks her back quickly. "I'm sure Detective Lopez has discussed with you the findings of my mother's will?"

"She has," Natasha nods back to him. "I have known Cassie Nova for a very, very long time and I don't want you to get too cocky about the money you received."

Max chuckles back to her. "Correction, you knew her. She died, remember?"

"You know what I mean."

"I know exactly what you mean," Max turns and glares at her. "You never accepted the fact that my mother tried to change. You never gave her the benefit of the doubt. And now, she's dead and you're still trying to drag her name through the mud. I see right through you Ms. Calimo."

Natasha chuckles back to him. "I'm glad you see me," she nods back to him. "Because, even in death I will not let Cassie Nova win. I will get back what is rightfully mind, and you can mark my words on that."

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

Tyler slowly moves up to the front door of Victoria's condo. He can't help but remember how he arrived a short time ago hoping to discuss with Victoria how much a therapist could make so he could try to understand if it is possible for Cassie to have accumulated the millions of dollars that Max is inheriting, he happened to see Brett sneaking out of her condo. He has no idea why Brett would have been at Victoria's, let alone sneaking out of the condo. He can't shake this new found bad feeling that he has in the pit of his stomach.

He knocks on her door and waits for Victoria to answer. When she does, he immediately notices that she doesn't look so great. "Hey Vic, I hope I'm not bothering you?"

"Tyler, this is certainly a surprise," Victoria replies to him quickly. "Not bothering me, no. I was just taking a nap. I'm trying to get rid of this headache."

"I can come back," Tyler tells her quickly. "This wasn't anything super important."

"If you don't mind?" Victoria says back to him. "I have just been struggling with getting rid of this headache for a few days now."

"Do you want me to come in and make sure that you're okay?"

"No I should be fine, I'll just set an alarm on my phone so I don't over sleep," Victoria replies to him as she pulls out her phone. Tyler notices something small on the corner of the phone case but he can't make out what it is.

"Okay, I hope you feel better soon Victoria," Tyler tells her, still wondering what is going on. "If you need anything, reach out, okay?"

"Thanks," Victoria tries to smile back to him before she closes her door.

Tyler sighs and moves towards the elevator, trying to put the pieces together of what is going on. He rides down the elevator and gets off in the lobby. As he moves to the front door, he doesn't see Vinny standing in the lobby on his phone. Vinny, however, notices Tyler and wonders why he was visiting Victoria. He immediately realizes that something is amiss here.

"What is going on with you Tyler?" Vinny whispers to himself as he quickly leaves the condo, wanting to follow Tyler to see if he can uncover what his visit with Victoria was really all about. The last thing Vinny needs is for someone to clue into the fact that he is drugging Victoria to slowly drive her crazy.

The State Jail

"Thank God you're okay," Chris breathes a sigh of relief as he just finished hearing from Trenyce how she was attacked on New Years Eve which resulted in Brad being killer. He can't help but think about how right before New Year's, he warned Trenyce and Cheresa to be careful with the serial killer on the loose. He can't believe that Trenyce could have been killed. "This is a nightmare."

"I know, I wanted to come so you could see for yourself that I am okay," Trenyce looks back at him. "I'm shaken but I am okay."

"What is Simona Lopez doing to find out who this killer is?" Chris asks her quickly. "The longer that they go without finding who the killer is, there is a bigger chance that more blood will be shed."

"I haven't seen her lately," Trenyce admits to him. "I know Greg and Brooke are really pressing her to find the killer since Brad was killed."

"I can't believe Brad's gone," Chris shakes his head back to her. "He died saving your life and we can't even thank him. After everything he and I went through, I never got a chance to make any amends."

Trenyce feels her eyes swell with water. "It should have been me," she quickly reveals to him. "I should be killed."

"I thank God that Brad was there," Chris looks back at her. "I don't know why anyone would want to hurt you."

"I don't know either but I am scared Chris. I'm really scared that the killer will come back and try to finish their job."

"You have to promise me to be careful," Chris replies to her. "I can't protect you because I'm stuck in here, so you have to be careful, Trey. I can't bare losing you."

"I'll be careful," Trenyce nods back to him. "I just can't wait for you to get out of here Chris. I need you."

"I know babe," Chris grabs her hand and kisses it. "I'll be out as soon as I can. I promise."

Adam's Townhouse

"I'm coming, I'm coming," Adam rushes over to the front door of his townhouse and quickly opens it as he sees Robin moving towards the door with Dominique in her basinet. "Wow, the day is really here, huh?"

"Yup," Robin leans in and kisses him quickly on the lips when she gets to the door. "Domi is home and she's here to stay."

"Well, come in," Adam smiles back to her as Robin moves inside and he closes the door behind her. "Welcome home."

Robin turns to him and smiles. "Thanks, it's good to be home. I am so glad that you agreed to try to put our relationship back together by letting Domi and I move back in with you. But, we have a problem already."

"What is it? It's not Domi?"

"No, she's fine," Robin replies to him. "It's Shane. He's not happy that I am moving back here. Not one little bit."

Adam moves up to her and pulls her into a hug. "Don't worry about Shane; he can see Domi whenever he wants. But you and I, we've been apart long enough. He and Helen will just have to get used to that."

"I like the way you think," Robin smiles back to him. "Now, how about we give Domi a tour of her new home?"
