The Calimo Cabin

"Say goodnight, because today is the last either of you will ever see," Vinny gets a wicked grin on his face on as he points his handgun at Victoria and then over at Bryce. He just finished explaining to Victoria the reason behind his quest to make her believe that she split again. Now that she knows that he drugged her into believing that Brandy had returned and he blackmailed Bryce into helping him, Vinny realizes that he has to kill both of them. The last thing that he needs is for anyone else to uncover this, and he knows that Bryce knows many more of his secrets. "It's time for you two to die."

"Vinny, please," Victoria pleads with him before she looks over at Bryce. "You don't have to kill us. This doesn't have to end this way."

"She's right," Bryce chimes in. "Victoria and I, we are in love, Vinny. We could leave here and never look back. We could leave Twin Peaks tonight and disappear."

Victoria finds herself nodding her head to Vinny. "He's right Vinny," she quickly tells him. "We will leave and never come back."

Vinny chuckles back to Victoria. "You really expect me to believe that, Victoria? Your mother is buried in Twin Peaks, are you telling me that you'd never want to visit her grave? Your brother is in Twin Peaks, and he just adopted a baby. You're telling me that you'll never see Donovan or baby Olly again? I don't buy this for one second! No, it's time for you to die. It's time that I ensure all my secrets are kept forever."

Vinny is about to pull the trigger when Victoria screams and jumps at Vinny, tackling him to the ground! She tries to fight him for the gun as Bryce yells and tries to encourage her to grab the gun away from Vinny!

Dominick's Townhouse

"Would someone please tell me what the hell is going on in here?" a frustrated Dominick asks Abby and Felicia as he moves to the bar and pours himself a drink at the bar. He just came downstairs from his study and overheard the woman bickering and then Abby mentioned that she knew Felicia's deep dark secret. He has no idea what secret his ex-wife could be keeping and he is curious as to how his fiancé seemingly thinks she knows what it is.

"Felicia and I were just talking sweetheart," Abby purses her lips together. "You know, she doesn't want us to be together," she continues to tell him, trying to change the course of the conversation. She still doesn't know if she's ready to reveal that Leah is Frederick's daughter, not Dominick's.

"You smug little…" Felicia moves up to Abby, fed-up with how she is being treated.

"That's enough Felicia," Dominick turns and looks at his ex-wife. "Listen, you're my ex-wife and the mother of my children and you will always be a part of my life, but I am going to marry Abby. You need to understand that."

Dominick then turns and takes a long sip of his scotch before he looks at Abby. "And, as for you, I would love for you to get along with Felicia. She will always be in my life, she is one of my dearest friends."

Abby gulps back to him and nods. "I will definitely try, Dominick."

"Good," Dominick replies to her quickly. "Now, tell me, what was it about this secret that you have on Felicia?"

"I, uh," Abby chokes on her words.

"I'd like to know that too," Felicia comes up behind Dominick. "What exactly are you talking about? What secret do you know about me?"

The Pampa Grill

Helen moves into the restaurant and immediately rushes up to the bar where she is going to pick up some take out. She and Adam are supporting Dawn while they await for an update on Cheresa and since it is getting late, she thought she would order some food for the three of them. Since Adam did a coffee run earlier, she thought she would come and grab the food.

"Fancy meeting you here," a voice comes up from behind her. Helen turns around and sees Shane approaching her. "How have you been?"

Helen sighs back to her friend. "I've been better, Shane. I don't know if you've heard, but Cheresa Lawson is missing. Adam and I have been supporting Dawn, in fact, I'm just here to grab us some food to keep us going."

"I hadn't heard," Shane shakes his head back to her. "I hope she is okay."

"We all do."

"At least you and Adam are together? Is there any chance this crisis will bring you two closer together? I know that is what you want," Shane tells her.

Helen forces a smile on her face as she recalls how she finally confessed to Adam that she and Shane worked together to break up him and as a result, Adam has thrown her out of his life. They are only together now because of Dawn's crisis.

"What is it? What's wrong? I can see by the look in your eyes that you're not telling me something," Shane asks Helen.

"It's Adam," she whispers back to him. "He knows what I did, what we did," she reveals to Shane. "He knows that it was my idea for you to sue Robin for custody of Dominique and he is livid, Shane. I've never seen him so angry before."

The Black House; Helen & Dawn's Home

"I'm glad you're here," Adam looks over at Max as they sit in the living room of the house he lived in with Helen for years. "Dawn will appreciate the support."

"I'm glad that you were able to convince her to lay down until Helen got back with some food from the Pampa Grill," Max looks back at his father. "She was exhausted."

"She has been waiting for news about Cheresa," Adam sighs back to him. "But, we might not hear anything until tomorrow."

"This will give us some time to chat," Max replies to him. "How are things with Robin? I heard she married Shane?"

"She did. She seems…happy?"

Max chuckles back to him. "I don't know how she could be happy when it is clear that she still loves you," Max tells his father. "I don't know all the details as to what happened or what made her decide to marry Shane, but I'd suggest that you don't give up on her just yet, Dad. I think there's more to your story with her."

Adam uneasily smiles back to him. "We will see," he shrugs his shoulders back to him. "So, how is Cassie coping in jail? I can't tell you how happy I am that she came back to town so you could get out of jail."

Max sighs back to him. "That is another long story," he admits to him. "She has revealed that she gave birth to Jacob's baby; he dropped the charges so he could meet his son."

"Whoa," Adam looks back at him in surprise. "Do you believe her? I hate to say that but your Mom has pulled some stunts in her time."

"I believe her," Max tells him. "I think I have a brother out there. I just hope she brings him to Twin Peaks; I think we all want to meet this baby. This baby that will change everything for everyone."

The Claus House; Paige's Home

Paige grabs her robe and wraps her around her body before she leaves her bedroom and rushes down the stairs of the house that she lives in alone since Leah moved into the penthouse with Cory. She was about to go bed when she heard the doorbell ring; she has no idea who could be at her house at this house but she wants to ensure that it is nothing urgent.

"Jacob?" she asks in surprise as she sees her former fiancé standing on the other side of the door. "Come in, it's cold out there."

"Thanks, sorry if I woke you up," he moves into the foyer. "I just didn't know where else to go."

"It's fine," Paige follows him into the living room. "What is going on?"

"I just came from seeing Cassie," Jacob reveals to her, as he thought how he went to see the woman who claims to have given birth to his child. Jacob is still reeling that Cassie returned to town to get Max out of jail and then announced to Jacob that she had his child; Cassie told him if he ever wanted to meet his child, his son, he would have to drop the charges against her, which he has done.

"And? Did you meet your son?" Paige asks him quickly, knowing that he has been eager to meet the child Cassie claimed to have given birth too. "What is he like?"

"I didn't meet him," Jacob says back to her. "But Cassie did show me pictures of him."

"Really? What does he look like?"

"He's…he's beautiful," Jacob replies to her as he gets tears in his eyes. "I have a son, Paige. I really created a new life."

Paige comes up to him and pulls him into a hug. "You will get to meet him now, Jacob. Cassie won't go back on her word, I believe that."

He continues to hold his former fiancé. "I hope so," he whispers to her. "I, I just can't believe that I am a father."

The Dockside Storage Units

Cheresa's eyes look over at the scissors that are resting on the table that she is somewhat close too. She recalls how the last time she tried to scoot over to the table, the chair that she is still tied too collapsed and she fell to the ground.

"How am I going to get over there?" she asks herself, inside her head as she still has a mouth gag on. "I need to get away from this woman! I have to get out of here."

Before she can think of anything else, the side door to the storage locker opens and Tara reappears. The kidnapper moves up to Cheresa and removes her mouth gag and immediately gives her some water, which Cheresa drinks quickly.

"See how good I am to you?" Tara smiles to her. "I keep giving you water."

"I could be good to you too," Cheresa replies to her quickly. "I told you before, my family, we have money. I could get you as much as you needed."

Tara chuckles back to her. "It's funny that you mention that again," she tells her captor. "Because, after we spoke last, I did some research and I noticed a news article that your father, Greg, had to pay millions in unpaid IRS bills after your mother, Brooke, was killed. So, let me ask you this question: how the hell can your family pay me of when you just paid the government off?"

Cheresa gulps heavily back at her before Tara chuckles back to her. "Yea, that's what I thought sugar," Tara winks back to her. "Back to my plan, okay? In the future, don't try to make any deals with me because you're in no position to negotiate."

Cheresa is about to say something but Tara puts her mouth gag back in her mouth causing Cheresa to try to scream for help, but her cries are muffled. "No one will hear you," Tara continues to chuckle back to her. "You're staying here until I get everything I want, and nothing will stop that from happening."

The Calimo Cabin

Vinny and Victoria continue to struggle on the floor of the Calimo Cabin while they wrestle for the gun that Vinny has. Bryce watches in horror, unsure of how he can help the situation. Finally, Vinny grabs Victoria's arms and throws her off of him! Her body flies through the air and crashes into a wall in a loud thump!

"Victoria!" Bryce yells out in horror as Vinny slowly gets back on to his feet.

Bryce rushes up to Victoria's crumbled body, as the blow caused her to fall unconscious. "She's alive," Bryce turns to Vinny after he finishes checking her pulse. "But she needs to get to the hospital. She could have a broken rib or a concussion."

"That won't be necessary," Vinny wipes his face from some sweat and then aims his gun at her. "She's going to die, right now. She has been a thorn in my side for the very last time," he says as he prepares to pull the trigger.

Dominick's Townhouse

"Well Abigail, are you going to answer me?" Dominick presses Abby, who turns away from him and shuts her eyes. "What secret do you have about Felicia? We are all here, you can let us know. There should be no secrets between us."

Abby takes a deep breath. She wasn't sure how she was going to tell Dominick the truth, but since he heard her talk to Felicia about it, she realizes that there is nothing stopping her from telling him everything. And, she knows that once she reveals everything she knows, Felicia will be out of Dominick's life, and their relationship, forever.

She turns back around and looks at him. "You have to know that I never meant to hurt you by finding this out, Dominick," she whispers to him. "This information, it just sort of came into my possession."

"What information?" Dominick asks her.

"She's not making any sense!" Felicia hisses back to her. "She has nothing on me because there is nothing on me!"

"It's about Leah," Abby cuts Felicia off, keeping her eyes on her fiancé.

"My daughter?" Dominick asks her, still confused by all of this. "I don't understand this, Abby."

"That's just it," Abby looks back at him. "She's…not…your…daughter," she says slowly as Dominick arches his eyebrow. "Frederick Richardson is Leah's father; I am sorry Dominick, but Leah isn't your daughter!"
