The Calimo Mansion

"Champagne?" NatashaRobbie asks as she moves into the living room of the Calimo mansion and sees her brother about to open a vintage bottle of Moet. She wonders what the cause for celebration is since she knows there has been a lot heated moments in the family the last few weeks. "Dare I ask what the celebration is for?"

Kim looks back at her husband from the sofa and smiles to him before she turns around to face Natasha. "I am home from the hospital, isn't that celebration enough?"

Natasha uneasily chuckles back to her as she knows that Kim's shooting could have been far worse than what it was; she is still feeling relieved that it was only a flesh wound and that Kim agreed to not press charges as long as Natasha agreed to support her relationship with Robbie, which she did. Natasha realizes that it will be difficult to fully support them but she has to try because the alternative is going to jail.

"Yes, of course it is," Natasha replies to her. "It just seems like an expensive bottle of champagne to celebrate your homecoming with?"

Robbie pops the cork and pours three glasses of the champagne. "Well, I guess there's no better time to tell you this," Robbie says back to her as he moves to the women and passes them each a glass of champagne.

"Tell me what?" Natasha replies to him.

"Kim and I are married," Robbie stuns Natasha with his admission. "I surprised her with a wedding when we got home, and thankfully for me, she still agreed to be my wife."

"Oh," Natasha manages to reply to him. The words hit Natasha like a ton of bricks; the last thing she expected from Robbie was for him to admit that he married Kim the minute she was released from the hospital; still she knows that she has to play it cool because she could still face charges if Kim decides to pursue her shooting her. "I see."

"I know this might come as a shock to you," Kim looks at her sister in law. "But, Robbie and I are in love and like we said that the hospital, we expect you to support us moving forward."

Natasha uneasily nods back to her. "Well then," she forces a smile on her. "Let me be the first to toast the happy couple; congratulations on your marriage."

"Thanks sis," Robbie looks back at her before the three of them click their glasses together and take sips of the champagne.

 
 

Andrew's SUV

"We are almost at the jail," Andrew looks over at Trenyce, who is sitting in the passenger seat of his black SUV. He quickly recalls how he and Trenyce agreed to tell Chris about Albertinah's death together; he is still feeling raw over the fact that his girlfriend was actually murdered by the Rose Peddle killer; in his mind, it still feels like a dream and that he will wake up and Albertinah will be alive and well.

"I'm glad that we have some time to talk before we see Chris," Trenyce uneasily looks over at Andrew, who has returned his focus to the road. "We need to get a few things straight before we get to the jail."

Andrew arches his eyebrow and then quickly glances back over at her. "Uh, okay? What do we have to get straight, Trenyce?"

"My trip to the hospital," she reveals to him, thinking about how she fainted the previous night and was told that she is pregnant. She knows that Brad is the father of her unborn child but she realizes that this is not the time that she wants to tell Chris about the baby; he will be going through enough learning that his sister is dead. "We need to keep that between you and I. I don't want Chris to know."

"I didn't think that Chris could be the father of the baby," Andrew admits to her immediately. "But, that's your business, Trenyce."

"I just don't want him to find out about my baby and Albertinah at the same time," she tells the younger man. "He will be devastated by the loss of his sister; he doesn't need to know that I was with someone else too."

Andrew uneasily nods back to her. "Okay," he tells her. "I won't say anything. But, I do think you're going to have to tell him sooner than later because eventually, you'll start to show."

"I know," Trenyce nods back to him. "I'll tell him, just not right now. He needs to process Albertinah's murder first."

The Claus House; Leah & Paige's Home

"Did you talk to Paige about moving into the penthouse with me yet?" Cory asks Leah as he stands in the living room of her house that she lives in with her daughter. Cory recalls how he had asked Leah to move in with him since they are trying to have a child together; it seemingly makes sense that they would live together if they are going to have a child with one another.

"I haven't," Leah admits to him as she looks over at her lover. "But, it is mostly because our schedules just haven't aligned. As soon as I see her, I will."

"Good," Cory smirks back to her. "I still think you and I under one roof would be a good thing, don't you?"

Leah nods back to him. "It seems to make the most sense if we are going to have a child together."

"That's exactly what I thought," Cory chuckles back to her.

Before Leah can say anything else, she hears the doorbell ring. "Oh, that's probably my delivery," Leah looks back at him before she scurries to the front door, leaving Cory alone in the living room. Within a few minutes, Leah is back with a small box. "I was right."

"The pain medication for your neck injury?" Cory asks her, recalling how she told him that she has been having her medication delivered to her for years since she hurt her neck after the explosion in Lake Tahoe years ago. Cory still thinks that it is odd that she gets her medication delivered instead of going to a regular pharmacy to pick it up when she needs too, but he won't mention it to Leah since he doesn't want to upset her.

"Yea," Leah purses her lips together. "It comes here like clockwork. It really is amazing."

Cory uneasily looks at the small box of medication and tries to put it out of his mind that he is getting an odd feeling about it; he shakes his head trying to not let it bring him down but there is something about the situation that isn't sitting well with him.

MWI

"I missed seeing you this morning so I brought you a coffee and muffin from the Sugarbowl," Jeff announces to Meggan as he moves into her office at her PI firm. She was already gone in the morning when he woke up so he didn't get a chance to see her; he knows that she wasn't too happy with him the previous night because he was communicating with Leah while at Robbie and Kim's non-wedding. He needs Meggan to understand that he is with her, not Leah, but he and Leah will always have a place in one another's lives.

"That was nice of you," Meggan stands up from behind her desk. "And, sorry about leaving so early. I had a million things to do today."

"It's fine," Jeff smiles back to her as he gives her a quick kiss on the lips. "You are a small business owner, I get how busy you can be."

"Thanks for being so understanding."

"As long as that's all it is," Jeff looks back at her. "I remember you not being overly happy with me for talking to Leah last night at the Calimo mansion."

Meggan sighs back to him. "I know that you two have history," she replies to him quickly. "I am just trying to work on my own insecurities. I guess it doesn't help knowing that Leah and Cory are trying to have a child together."

"Like I said, I am with you now," Jeff tells her quickly. "What Leah and Cory do is their business, even though I hope they don't have a child together."

Meggan looks back at him in surprise. "What did you just say?"

Jeff shrugs back to her. "I don't want them to have a child together?" Jeff says back to her. "Is it bad that I feel that way?"

"I can't do this," Meggan shakes head back to him. "You're still obsessing over what Leah and Cory do and it's not fair," she tells him. "It's not healthy."

"I'm sorry that I told you how I feel Meggan, but it is true, that's just how I feel."

"Well," Meggan looks back at him with intent. "This is how I feel, you and I, we need to take a break. I can't be with you while you're obsessing over Leah and what she does with her body."

"What are you saying?"

"I'm saying," Meggan replies to him quickly. "We are over, Jeff. For good, this time."

The Sugarbowl

"I was pleasantly surprised to hear from you today," Helen admits to Adam as they sit across from one another in the back booth of the coffeehouse. Helen knows that the previous night at the non-wedding, Adam admitted to her that he would try to find it in his heart to forgive her for everything that happened leading up to Robin giving birth prematurely. Helen is taking this visit as a sign that he meant every word of that and that they will be able to try to move on; of course, she knows that with Shane trying to get Robin to marry him so he will not file for custody of baby Dominique, this could be her chance to reunite with Adam.

"I meant what I said last night," Adam takes a sip of his coffee before looking back at his ex-wife. "I want to move on from everything that happened, Helen. We have spent so many years in each other's lives, I would like to try to get back to being friends at least?"

"You know that I would like nothing more than to get back to where we once were, Adam," Helen nods back to him. "I just appreciate that you're willing to do this with me."

"I am in a really good place in my life right now," Adam admits to her. "Robin and I are back on solid ground, we are planning our wedding, we will finally have the future we we've wanted. Since I am in such a good place, why not try to move on from all the horrible things that have happened?"

Helen uneasily smiles back to him. "You're right," she reaches over and grabs his hand. "Now is the perfect time to move from all of that stuff. And, we can move on together."

Twin Peaks General Hospital

Robin slowly moves up to the door to Shane's office as she needs to talk to him desperately. Ever since he told her that he would not file for custody of Dominique if she agrees to marry him so they can be a family together, she hasn't been able to think about much else. She keeps replaying her conversation with Nicholas in her head where he told her that she will have to do what is best for her daughter; the question, what is the best thing for Dominique right now? She sighs heavily as she slowly opens the door to his office and sees Shane sitting behind his desk.

"I'm glad you're here, we have to talk," she announces to him as she closes the door behind herself. Shane looks up and sees Robin moving up to his desk.

"I have been expecting to hear from you," Shane looks back at her. "After our conversation last night at the wedding."

Robin uneasily chuckles back to him. "I'm not sure that I would call it a conversation," she admits to him. "It sounded more like a demand, Shane."

"It wasn't a demand," Shane replies to her quickly. "You asked me what it would take to for me not to file for custody of Dominique and I told you. The rest is up to you, completely."

"But, to marry you, Shane? You know that Adam and I are engaged and are finally happy together?"

"Then you've made your decision," Shane looks back at her. "I'll see you in court, Robin."

"No," Robin glares back at him. "I'm here to tell you that I will marry you, Shane. But, only because that is what is best for my daughter. The last thing she needs is go to through a nasty custody battle when she is still getting healthy."

Shane can't help but smile back at her. "Really? You mean that? You'll marry me?"

Robin sighs back to him. "Yes," she crosses her arms over her chest. "All that I'm asking for is that you give me some time to tell Adam; he's going to be devastated. Can you please give me some time to tell him?"

"I'll give you a week," Shane replies to her. "And, then we are moving forward. I don't want to be away from my daughter a moment longer than I have to be."

The Pampa Grill

"Darling, I am glad that I heard from you today," Eva tells Natasha as they sit across from one another in the restaurant. Eva is desperate to find out what Natasha was thinking the night before at Robbie and Kim's wedding where she pulled a gun on them which resulted in Kim getting shot and having to spend the night in the hospital. "I am sorry that I missed the wedding last night but it sounded like it was pretty dramatic. What the hell were you thinking pulling a gun on Robbie and Kim?"

"That I didn't want my brother to marry that woman," Natasha sighs back to her mother. As soon as she had her glass of champagne at the Calimo mansion, she left because she wanted to give Robbie and Kim some alone time. She realized that she wanted to see her mother, so she invited Eva to join her at the restaurant. "I never meant to shoot anyone; I thought the gun had blanks but Sophie changed them with real bullets. It was all just one disaster after another."

"Sophie changed the bullets? My God, why was she playing with a gun? Doesn't she know what could have happened to her?"

"I know, I know," Natasha sighs back to her mother. "Cory and I already spoke to her about it but I don't know that she heard me. I'm beginning to think I might have to send her away to an all-girls boarding school. The discipline might be good for her."

"I am just relieved that Kim wasn't seriously injured," Eva looks back at her daughter. "You could have been in serious hot water."

"She has agreed not to press charges," Natasha reveals to her. "As long as I support her relationship with Robbie moving forward, which I will try to do."

"It might not be the worst thing in the world, Natasha," Eva tells her daughter. "Who knows, they might be good for one another?"

"They might me," Natasha purses her lips together. "What about you? Any luck getting back in Dominick's good graces?"

Eva sighs back to her. "I'm afraid not," Eva admits to her. "I will be damned, however, I lose him to Felicia. Felicia will not succeed in breaking up my marriage, I won't let that happen."

"Is she still acting odd? I happen to mention to Tyler about your theory that Felicia might be the Rose Peddle killer if she was off her medication and he was not happy with me at all," Natasha tells her. "Although, I have to admit, it makes sense to me."

"Tyler might not want to see what is right in front of him," Eva replies to her. "But, that's why I took matters into my own hands."

Natasha arches her eyebrow back to her. "What did you do?"

Eva chuckles back to her. "Let's just say, I put planted a seed in someone's garden and I suspect it will start to grow very soon."

Robertson Enterprises

"Felicia, I am surprised to see you here today," Dominick welcomes his ex-wife into his office at Robertson Enterprises. He knows that Felicia has been acting a little bit odd lately so he had hoped that she would be laying low and taking care of herself. The last thing that he needs is for Felicia to have a complete breakdown of some kind since he knows her history.

"I wanted to get out of the house," Felicia admits to him, as she tries to hide her trembling hand. She has been racking her brain trying to think if she was dreaming seeing Brett in her bedroom the other night; she has no idea why she would see him in her room but she also doesn't know why she would dream about Brett as she barely knows the man. "You were the first person I wanted to see."

"That's nice," Dominick smiles back to her. "Can I get you anything?"

"No, I think I'm okay," Felicia tells him as she looks back at him. Suddenly behind Dominick, Bob Calimo appears! Felicia covers her mouth in shock and starts to move backwards stunned at the sight; she can't believe that she is seeing Bob, who has been dead for years. And yet, there he is, in front of her and mocking her.

"I'm going to set you on fire again," Bob's eyes glimmer with glee.

Felicia screams in horror as she thinks about how she was caught in the Robertson Enterprises boutique a few years ago when it started on fire.

"Felicia? What is it? What's wrong?" Dominick comes up to her, and pulls her into a hug.

Felicia breathes a sigh of relief when she doesn't see Bob standing in the room anymore. "My God, you're trembling, come sit down and try to calm down. What happened?"

"I… I thought I saw Bob."

"Bob? Bob Calimo?" Dominick asks her in confusion. "He's been dead for years, Felicia. It is impossible that you would have seen him."

"I know," Felicia nods back to him as she gets tears in her eyes, wondering what is happening to her.

Dominick sighs and immediately gets concerned about the status of his ex-wife. "Let me get you some water."

Dominick stands up and moves to the bar but he turns when he hears his office door open. He feels his heart skip a beat when he sees Simona Lopez standing there. "Mr. Robertson, I was hoping you knew where your ex-wife was, I have a few questions for her."

Felicia looks over at Dominick before she slowly stands up from the sofa. "I'm right here detective," she says, trying to keep her voice from cracking. "What is this all about?"

"I'd like to ask you a couple of questions," Simona moves closer to her. "It is about the Rose Peddle killer."

Dominick quickly moves up to Simona and cuts her off from looking at Felicia's trembling hands. "This isn't a good time," Dominick uneasily smiles back to her. "Felicia and I were in the middle of something very important."

Simona arches her eyebrow back to him. "This won't take long…"

"Like I said, it's not a good time," Dominick sternly tells her. "How about Felicia and I stop by first thing tomorrow morning and you can ask her anything you'd like?"

"Fine," Simona replies to him quickly. "But if there are any other delays, I will get a court order and demand that Felicia come to the station, Mr. Robertson."

"No need," Dominick forces a smile on his face, but Felicia breathes a sigh of relief. "We will be there."

The Dockside Storage Units

Brooke paces back and forth inside her family storage unit as her mind is racing about the events of her day so far. She was at the Lawson Estate when her weekly delivery of flowers arrived; of course, she always orders roses because she uses the rose peddles to cover the bodies of the victims that she has killed as part of her signature. She had placed the flowers in the conservatory because it is a room in the house that no one else really uses; however, when she returned to the mansion's foyer, Greg had found a couple of the rose peddles on the floor and he was worried that the Rose Peddle killer was in the house. She, of course, calmed him down and covered her tracks but she is realizing that things are getting a little too close to comfort.

"I have killed Shelley so Cheresa and Dawn could be together," she whispers to herself as she looks at the large knife that lays on top of one of the boxes in the storage unit. "And, I got rid of Albertinah so I am hopeful that Abby and Andrew will get back together. My heart still aches for my mistake with Brad," she gets tears in her eyes at the thought of accidently killing her son. "But, I have to move on. I have to not dwell on the negative, not after all the positives I have done."

She pauses for a moment as she looks around the storage unit and sees items that bring back many memories for her. "But, everyone that was causing us problems is dead. So, I need to stop this now. I can't risk anyone finding out what I've done. Albertinah will be my last victim; she has too be."

The Lawson Estate; Greg, Brooke, Abby & Cheresa's Home

Greg paces back and forth in the living room of his large estate that he shares with his family as he racks his brain thinking about the events that happened earlier in the day. He returned home and immediately saw a few pink rose peddles on the white marble floor of the foyer; he was sick to his stomach at the thought that the Rose Peddle killer had been in the mansion, and maybe, had killed another member of his family.

He did calm down considerably when Brooke explained to him that she had received her weekly order of flowers that included pink roses; because of what their family had been through, she put the flowers in another room of the house, which made sense to him. Afterwards, however, out of the blue, Brooke announced that she had a spa treatment and she quickly rushed off. He can't place it, but something about Brooke's behavior seemed off.

"I am sure it is nothing," he whispers back to himself. "She, like the rest of us, are going through a lot right now."

Suddenly, he recalls his ex-wife telling him that the flowers she had received were placed in the conservatory. Without thinking, Greg quickly walks out of the living room and into the foyer of the mansion. He moves to the entry way to the conservatory and opens the door and immediately gasps in shock.

"All pink roses," he whispers to himself. "She told me that only some of the flowers were pink roses," he says as he feels the blood drain from his face. "What the hell is going on here, Brooke?"
