on One Day at a Time
Everything for Trenyce is moving in slow motion; she has returned to her house after the police lifted the crime scene from Brad being murdered there on New Year's Eve. While making some tea, she heard a noise and immediately feared that the Rose Peddle Killer had returned to try to kill her again since she was the targeted victim when Brad was killed. She moved to the door and saw that someone was trying to enter the house; panicked she started to move backwards when the door opened, and she let out a blood curling scream of terror.
"What is going on? Trenyce, are you okay?" Abby asks her as she opens the door and sees Trenyce screaming out loud. Abby has no idea why Trenyce is screaming but the ringing in her ears is not fun.
Trenyce stops screaming and looks at the younger woman for a moment as she tries to catch her breath. She was not expecting Abby to be behind the door, so she is feeling relieved but still very panicked. "Abby, what the hell are you doing here? You scared me half to death!"
"I saw lights on while I was driving by," Abby moves up to her and puts her hand on Trenyce's shoulder, walking her to the sofa in the living room, where she sits Trenyce down. "I thought your house was still a crime scene, so I came to see what was going on. I didn't expect to find the door unlocked but after Brad's death, I guess I was curious about what was happening here."
"I am so relieved it is you," Trenyce gets water in her eyes. "I thought that the killer was coming back to try to kill me again."
"I'm so sorry I scared you," Abby pulls her into a hug. "I am just glad you're okay."
"I am beginning to think that moving back here was a mistake," Trenyce admits to her as they lock eyes as her rate starts racing again. "Seeing Brad dead in this very room, it's too much for me to handle, this is all too much for me to handle!"
The Cascade Apartments; Andrew's
"So, Trenyce asked you to move into her place instead of her living here?" Albertinah asks Andrew as they sit at the dining room table together, having a pizza and some salad together. Albertinah knows that Andrew had initially asked Trenyce to live with him after the attack at her place on New Year's Eve; Trenyce, however, had moved in with Tyler instead and now that her place is no longer a crime scene, she has asked him to move into her place since there is more room.
"She did," Andrew takes a bit of the Hawaiian pizza and then looks back at her. "I think I will take her up on the offer because it does make a lot of sense in that she would have more room available in her house. Even if I had you over, we'd have privacy."
Albertinah chuckles back to him. "That's good because we definitely need our space sometimes."
"Well, you can't blame me for not being able to keep my hands off you," he winks back to her. "I have an idea, though. How about you and I have a romantic date before I move into Trenyce's? Maybe a romantic dinner at the Pampa Grill, followed by an evening stroll and then back here where I'll make love to you all night long?"
"That is the best idea you've had in a very long time," Albertinah smiles back to him. "Consider it a date."
Vinny creeps up to the backdoor of Tyler's townhouse. He recalls how he was at the Pampa Grill with Daisy on their "first" official date when he realized that he should get back to Tyler's, so he can replace Felicia's pills with the false tablets he has been giving her. He doesn't want Felicia to go without the fake medication, so she orders more of her real medication and slowly becomes stable again. However, he made sure that he didn't rush the end of the date, but he did tell Daisy that he would see her back at home, which she was okay with. He is thrilled that "Brett's" first date with Daisy went so well; now, he just has to ensure all of his other plans don't get ruined.
Now, he just must ensure that he gets into Tyler's, refills the pills and then leaves before anyone is able to see him. He still needs to ensure that Tyler is too busy dealing with an unhinged Felicia to continue to look into his plan to drive Victoria crazy. The very last thing Vinny needs is for anyone to uncover his master plan.
He slowly tries to open the door but realizes that it is locked. He pulls out a bobby pin from his jacket and quickly unlocks the back door. He moves inside quietly and looks around.
Immediately, he can hear Felicia humming to herself in the washroom. He moves up to the door and listens closely and realizes that she is in the bathtub.
"Perfect," he whispers to himself as he creeps closer to Felicia's bedroom. He closes the door behind himself and rushes over to the vanity. He opens the drawer and pulls out the pill bottle; he opens it and then pulls out a small plastic bag from his other pocket. He opens the bag and pours some of the pills into Felicia's medication bottle. He then closes the bottle and puts it back in the vanity drawer.
He turns around and is about to leave when he sees the door handle start to turn. "Damn it," he whispers to himself. "She's out of the bath. How am I going to get out of here?"
Tyler sits at his table with another fresh beer in front of him. Dominick just left him after telling him about Eva's theory that if Felicia is off her medication, then she could, potentially, be the Rose Peddle Killer. Dominick claims, however, that he saw Felicia take a pill, so Eva's theory couldn't be true. Still, Tyler must wonder if his mother is okay as she has been acting odd lately. But, to be the killer, it is impossible, Tyler tells himself as he picks up his beer and has a healthy drink of it.
"Tyler, hi," Daisy says to her ex-boyfriend as she walks by his table and realizes that he is alone. She just finished her date with "Brett" and was about to leave when she saw Tyler. Thinking that he shouldn't be alone, Daisy found herself stopping to say hi.
"Hey, is your date over?" Tyler asks her, recalling how he saw Daisy and Brett having dinner earlier in the evening.
"It is," she sits across from him. "I didn't realize we had an audience."
"I just happened to notice you and Brett," Tyler tells her. "I didn't mean to be a snoop."
"It's a restaurant, you're bound to see other people," Daisy replies to him. "Is everything okay? You don't seem yourself."
Tyler sighs back to her. "I'm fine," he admits to her. "Just a lot of family stuff going on right now. How was your date?"
Daisy smiles back to him. "It was actually really nice," she nods back to him. "Brett really does seem to be very different from his brothers."
Tyler arches his eyebrow. "I know it's not my place anymore," he looks back at her. "But, Daisy, please, be careful. I can't put my finger on it, but I still don't trust the guy. I don't want you to get hurt."
Daisy reaches over and grabs his hand. "I appreciate that you still care enough to be worried," she replies to him. "But don't worry, I will be fine. Brett is not like Vinny or Dave, you have to believe me."
"It was nice of Meggan to offer to watch Olly so you and I could have some alone time," Donovan looks over to Lukas with a small grin on his face. Between the two of them, they are always with their son, so the fact that they have some adult time is refreshing to him.
Lukas picks up his glass of red wine and takes a sip. "It is nice to have time with my husband," Lukas nods back to him. "And, it will give us some time to talk."
"Is there something in particular that you wanted to discuss?"
"Abby Lawson," Lukas replies to him immediately. "We still need to settle her involvement with Olly, Donovan."
Donovan nods back to him as he recalls seeing Abby recently and she revealed to him that her parents also mentioned that they were concerned about her growing attachment to Olly; together, they realized that Lukas must have spoken to Brooke and Greg about his concerns.
"I was hoping you'd say that," Donovan admits back to him. "I saw Abby the other day and she told me that Greg and Brooke also have the same concerns that you have. Did you say something to them?"
Lukas sighs a little back to him. "I might have run into Greg and Brooke, yea," Lukas tells him. "When I expressed my concern, they admitted that they had the same concerns about Abby growing an unhealthy attachment to Olly. I can't say that I am surprised though, the last thing we need is for Abby to use Olly to get over Sonny."
"So, you're not willing to compromise at all? I've seen Abby alone with Olly and she's great with him; she doesn't want to do him any harm. She is just hurt by all the loss she is going through right now. It is more than just losing Sonny; she also lost Brad and she lost Andrew."
"And, I'm not trying to be an ass about this," Lukas sternly looks back at his husband. "But, Abby getting attached to my son is not an option for me. I don't want her seeing Olly anymore Donovan, so you have to promise me that this will won't happen again; Abby will not see Olly again, is that understood?"
At the bar, Helen picks up her glass of white wine and takes a long sip of it. She can't help but wonder if Shane has filed for custody papers yet for baby Dominique. She knows that she told him that the way to break up Adam and Robin is for him to try to get his daughter away from her. She knows that it is a bold move but the longer they wait to try to break up the happy couple, the more difficult it will become, especially considering the news that she got from Dawn.
"Helen," a voice calls out from behind her. Helen turns and sees Shane approaching her. "Can I have a drink with you?"
"Of course," Helen replies to him as he sits next to her. "I was just thinking about you."
"You were?" Shane asks him. "I am guessing you were thinking about our last discussion about how we could break up Adam and Robin?"
"Do you know where Dawn and Max are tonight?" Helen asks him before she takes another sip of her wine as Shane shrugs his shoulders back to her. "They are Adam's townhouse; they are celebrating the fact that he and Robin just got re-engaged."
Shane's eyes open wider in surprise at the news. He knows that they were already engaged but it seems like Adam and Robin are finally ready to take the next step to become husband and wife. "I had no idea," Shane admits to her. "But, I guess this news shouldn't be a surprise; they've always been engaged."
"It means," Helen looks back at him. "That, we have to act as soon as we can. So, if you haven't contacted your lawyer about suing for custody, it is time that you do, Shane. We have to break up Adam and Robin before they married."
"I can't believe how cute baby Dominique is," Dawn tells Robin as she puts the child back in the crib, as the infant is fast asleep. Robin smiles back to Adam's older child and then looks back at her sleeping child.
"Thanks," Robin replies to her. "I am just so glad that she is healthy and home."
"You and Shane must have been so scared when she was in the hospital," Max notes over to Robin. He is visiting Robin and Adam with Dawn, so they can all celebrate the fact that Robin and Adam got re-engaged. Max looks at Dawn and wonders how she really feels about the engagement since he knows that she was hoping Adam and Helen would reunite.
"You have no idea," Robin replies to him. "But, that is all water under the bridge. Domi is here and she is doing so well."
"It's so nice to see my children and my fiancé bonding," Adam announces as he comes out of kitchen with a bottle of champagne and four glasses on a tray. "I thought if we are celebrating our engagement, we should have some bubbles."
"Oh, that's a good idea," Robin says as she rushes up to him and starts to help him with the tray.
While Robin is helping Adam, Max moves up to his half-sister. "So, tell me Dawn," he looks at her. "How are you really feeling about this engagement?"
"I'm happy for Dad," Dawn sighs back to him, trying to put on a brave face. She can't help but remember last fall when Adam had his memory loss; she had her family back and it felt great. That seems so far away now, she realizes.
"Really?" You don't sound happy," Max chuckles back to her.
"Fine," she rolls her eyes. "I wish he was with my Mom but that's not going to happen so I'm trying to be supportive. I can't change this, so I might as well just try to roll with the punches."
Max puts his hand on her shoulder. "It's okay to feel a sense of loss," he tells her. "But, I do think we have to support Dad, he seems really happy."
"What are you two whispering about?" Adam asks his children as he comes up with two glasses of champagne.
"We were just saying how happy we are for you," Max tells his father. "In fact, that's what our toast should be."
"I'll drink to that," Robin purses her lips together as the four of them toast their glasses together.
"I can't believe that you're wedding plans are coming together so quickly," Andy tells Kim as they sit next to one another in the main office of Roboto. Kim has just finished explaining all the plans she and Robbie had made for their wedding; Andy almost can't believe how quickly their pans are coming together.
"It is really exciting, isn't it?" Kim replies to her brother. "It's like I keep telling Robbie, after Bob's death, I never truly believed that I would be this happy again."
Andy looks back at her and arches his eyebrow. "I know that I've mentioned this before, but are you absolutely sure that this is the best thing for you? You know the history you have with the Calimo family, Kim."
"I know my history with Robbie and Natasha," Kim nods back to him. "It is impossible to forget. Robbie and I were not looking for this; it just happened. I really do love him, Andy."
Andy grabs his sisters' hand and squeezes it. "I am happy for you," he tells his sister. "I just want to make sure you're not making a mistake. Once you marry Robbie, you can't go back."
"I don't want to go back," Kim tells him. "I just want to move forward, with Robbie as my husband."
"Oh good, you're still awake," Natasha announces to Robbie as she moves into the living room of the Calimo mansion and spies her brother pouring himself a nightcap at the bar. Natasha was hoping to catch Robbie alone because she has wanted to see if they could try to put their differences aside because Roboto is being impacted. "I thought we could talk."
Robbie sighs before he takes a sip of his drink. "If this has anything to do with my relationship with Kim or your relationship with Tyler, I am not in the mood Nat," he admits to her. "I've had a long day."
"It has," Natasha agrees with him. "But, we have to address these conflicts between us. It appears that Roboto is being impacted by this and we can't let our personal issues get in the way of the company."
"Well, what are you suggesting? Are you willing to be supportive of my marriage to Kim? If you're willing to support me, I'm definitely willing to support you and whatever you're doing with Tyler."
"It is completely different," Natasha huffs back to him. "I'm nowhere near ready to marry Tyler whereas you're ready to walk down the aisle with Kim!"
"Kim and I love one another," Robbie replies to her. "She will be my wife, Natasha. We will never get anywhere if you can't get that around your head."
"I'm begging you Robbie," Natasha looks back at him with intent. "Please, do not marry Kim. It will not end well for anyone."
"It's happening Nat," Robbie tells her. "Accept it or these issues will continue to come between us."
Natasha sighs as Robbie moves out of the living room. At the entry way of the of the living room, Sophie stands in her nightgown, having watched the interaction between her mother and uncle, wondering why Natasha doesn't want Robbie to marry Kim.
Davenport House; Trenyce's Home
"Okay, take a deep breath," Abby tells a panicked Trenyce, who is starting to hyperventilate as she sits on the sofa. "You don't have to stay here tonight if you don't feel safe."
"How could I feel safe? Brad, your brother, was killed right there," a tear falls down Trenyce's cheek as she points to the location in the room where Brad died. "I shouldn't be here! This was a mistake!"
"Okay, okay," Abby tries to calm her down. "Let's go get a cup of water and then I can take you anywhere you want to go, okay?"
Trenyce manages to nod her back to her. "Thanks Abby," Trenyce replies to her as she stands up from the sofa. As soon as Trenyce is on her feet, however, she collapses to the floor!
"Trenyce!" Abby shrieks as she moves up to the unconscious woman. "Trenyce, can you hear me? Trenyce!"
Vinny remains frozen as the door to Felicia's room slowly starts to open. He looks around but doesn't see anywhere to hide. Felicia, then, emerges in the doorway with a large towel wrapped around her head as she is fresh from the bathtub. She stops in her tracks when she sees Vinny standing in her room.
"What the hell are you doing in here? How did you get in here? What's going on?" a startled Felicia asks him as Vinny remains frozen and looking back at Felicia, wondering how he is going to get out of this.
