The Davenport House; Trenyce & Andrew's Home

"Trenyce?" a worried Chris looks back at the pregnant woman, who went into labour after she was having another one of her panic attacks. He was trying to support her and help her with the deliver, but Trenyce got worried, again because she is in labour and the power is out. She got so worked up that she has passed out. Chris knows that he has to wake her up because she has to continue to push out the baby. "Trey! Please, wake up!"

Trenyce's eyes slowly open and she looks at Chris. "Chris? What…happened?"

"You fainted, I think," Chris replies to her quickly. "How are you feeling? Are you strong enough to push again; the baby, it is still coming."

Trenyce feels weak. The sweat on her forehead builds and she feels another contraction coming on. "I…don't think…I…have a choice…" she says before she grunts out again as she pushes.

"Okay, keep going, Trey," Chris encourages her. "You're doing great. I can see the head, oh my God…"

Trenyce pushes again and cries out in pain. Soon, however, the sounds of baby crying emerge and Chris holds the infant in his arms. He gets a grin on his face as he looks up at Trenyce.

"You did it Trey," he tells her as he laughs a little at the sight of the baby in his arms. "You did! I'm so proud of you!"

But, before Trenyce can respond, her eyes roll back into her head and she passes out again. "Trey?" Chris asks her again, worried about the new mother. "Trenyce!"

The Black House; Helen & Dawn's Home

Hours later, the sun is creeping into the sky as a new day is finally starting in Twin Peaks. Helen pours herself a cup of coffee before she moves back to the table in her kitchen, where she sees Dawn eating her breakfast. She is still so grateful that Dawn's girlfriend, Cheresa, was found safely the previous night; she knows that Dawn was very worried about Cheresa, so she is glad that everything turned out.

"Are you going to head back to see Cheresa?" Helen asks her daughter as she sits at the table.

"As soon as I am done my breakfast," Dawn nods back to her. "Thanks again for staying with me last night. You, Dad and Max really helped me through the night."

"Of course," Helen smiles back to her. "You know that your father and I will always be here for you."

"With Robin marrying Shane, do you think that you and Dad will get back together? You know that I have always wanted my family to be back together again."

Helen sighs as she thinks about how Adam learned that she suggested to Shane that he sue Robin for full custody of Dominique unless Robin moved in with him. Adam has been furious with her for her role in breaking him and Robin up.

"I don't think that will be happening anytime soon," Helen finally tells her daughter. "Your father is not happy with me right now and I am not sure that there is anything I can do to make him forgive me."

Dawn looks back at her in surprise, as she didn't realize that her parents were at odds. "Robin is married to another man," Dawn reminds her. "I think you have to do whatever you can to get Dad to forgive you; this could your chance to be happy again, Mom. Please, promise me you will do whatever you can to get back into Dad's good graces."

The Glubbs House; Shane & Robin's Home

"Dominique went back to sleep after her feeding," Robin tells Shane as she comes downstairs and moves into the living room of the house that she shares with her husband. She can't help but recall the previous night when she and Shane ended up making love but in the aftermath, she admitted to Shane that her heart still belongs to Adam.

"Great," Shane looks back at his wife. He hasn't been able to stop thinking about the fact that she admitted that she still loves Adam, despite them having sex with one another. The fact that she confessed this to him as made him wonder if he should just be honest with her; maybe he should just tell her that he worked with Helen to split up her and Adam. "Do you have a few minutes? I have to head to the hospital but I was hoping to talk to you first."

"Of course," Robin nods back to him. "You know that I will always make time for you, Shane."

"Thanks," he replies to her. "I haven't been able to stop thinking about last night."

"I am sorry if I hurt you," Robin looks back at him. "I did want to have sex; I am a woman, after all. Afterwards, though, I had to be honest with you. I had to tell you the truth about how I was feeling."

Shane sighs back to her and nods to her. "I understand," he admits to her. "I do appreciate the honesty, and I think it's time that I am honest with you; completely honest with you Robin."

Robin arches her eyebrow back to him, wondering what he means. "Honest with me? You've always been honest with me, Shane? What is this about?"

"I will tell you everything," Shane tells her but before he can say anything else, the doorbell rings. He looks at Robin and puts one finger up. "Hold that thought; I'll get rid of whoever is there and we can finish this conversation."

Shane quickly moves to the front door and opens it. "Adam, hi, what's going on?"

Adam moves past Shane and sees Robin standing in the living room. He knows that he has to tell Robin the truth about how Shane and Helen worked together to split them up; he can't let this secret go on for another moment.

"I'm glad you're here," he looks at his former fiancé. "We have to talk and it can't wait. It's time you know the truth, Robin."

Robin looks back at Adam in surprise as this is the second person that has told her that she needs to know the truth. She puts her hand on her hip and looks back at Adam and at Shane, who reappears in the living room.

"Would someone please tell me what the hell is going on? What is this secret that everyone seems to know about that I don't?" Robin asks the two men, who look at one another with intent.

The Pampa Grill

Andy picks up his coffee and takes a sip of it while he thinks about everything that happened the previous night; he happened to see Clayton and Nicholas out on a date. Confused by what was happening, he raced to Nicholas' after, who admitted that he enjoyed spending time with Clayton because Andy ended their relationship. Furious with Nicholas, Andy ended up confronting Clayton about the date and the two of them shared a kiss, which escalated in them having sex. Not just sex, Andy thinks to himself, really great sex. Now, however, he knows that this situation just got even more complicated, which was the last thing that he wanted to do.

"You look a million miles away," Madeline tells her brother-in-law as she sits across from him. She was heading to the hospital but decided to have a quick breakfast first. When she came into the restaurant, she couldn't help but notice Andy sitting alone. "Is everything okay?"

"Maddie, hey," Andy replies to her quickly. "Things are…okay. I don't know if you heard, but my sister Kim, she miscarried her baby last night."

"Oh my God," Madeline quickly replies to her. "I had no idea, I am so sorry. Is there anything I can do?"

"No, but thanks," Andy tells her. "So, I am dealing with that but also some of my own drama."

"Did something else happen between Clayton and Nicholas? Clayton was already gone when I left this morning."

Andy sighs back to her. "If I tell you something, can you promise it will stay between us?"

"Of course, Andy. What is going on?"

"Clayton and I…we…uh, slept together last night," he reveals to her as she gasps back to him. "I know what you're going to say…it never should have happened. I get it."

"But it did happen," Madeline replies to him quickly, still reeling from his admission. She can't help but think back to the previous night when Nicholas admitted to her that he really had a good time on his date with her brother; now, she learns that her brother and Andy had sex with one another. She knows that this is a huge mess. "What are you going to do?"

"I wish I knew," Andy sighs back to her. "I fear that I have made this mess even messier and I don't know what to do about it."

The Young Mansion; Nicholas' Home

"This was very sweet of you to bring me breakfast this morning," Nicholas tells Clayton as they sit on the sofa in the large living room of his mother's mansion. Nicholas can't help but have a smile on his face; the previous night he and Clayton had a great first date and they agreed to a second. He had no idea that Clayton was going to surprise him with breakfast today, but he can't help but think that this is the perfect way to have a second date.

Clayton takes a bite of his blueberry muffin before looks back at Nicholas. "I didn't want to wait to spend more time with you," he admits to him. "I know you're busy with the One Day House, but I did think that you should have a good breakfast before you went into work."

"Like I said, I think this was a great idea. And you're right, I do have a busy day at the work. Do you have a shift at the coffeehouse today?"

"No, I actually have a day off," Clayton tells him. "I'm looking forward to it; it is the first one in a while."

"Oh nice, how are you going to spend the day?" Nicholas asks him before he takes a sip of his coffee.

"I'm actually going to go shopping," Clayton reveals to him. "Since Madeline is letting me stay with her, I thought it would be good for me to get some of my own belongings; you know, like a bed and stuff."

"I love that you're setting some roots down, Clayton," Nicholas smiles to him. "It means that you're going to be in Twin Peaks for a while."

"That I am," Clayton nods back to him. "I have no plans of leaving any time soon; I have too much going for me here."

"Work and…?"

Clayton grabs his hand as their eyes lock. "This," he admits to him. "I don't want to go anywhere until I know what we have here, Nicholas. I feel this…chemistry between us. Tell me you feel it too?"

Nicholas nods back to him. "I definitely feel it, Clayton. There is no denying it, so we shouldn't try."

Robertson Enterprises; The Studio

"I know that you likely have a million things to do today but I had to see you this morning," Max tells Paige as they stand next to one another at the large working table in the studio of Robertson Enterprises. He knows that the previous day was a very long day, but he had to see Paige to see how she was feeling about everything that has happened: He is out of jail, Cassie is out of jail and she has requested that her son, with Jacob, be brought to Twin Peaks. It is a lot to take in, but he hopes that she can be honest with him about where they stand.

"It was a long night," Paige admits to him, as she can't help but think about how Leah revealed to her that Abby announced that Frederick, not Dominick, is her biological father. The news sent her mother into a tailspin, which Paige can relate too. Still, she knows that she isn't going to share those details with Max just yet. "I don't know that I got much sleep."

"This entire situation with my Mom and Jacob is wild," Max nods back to her, not realizing that Paige has more going on with her. "I hope you know that I am here for you, if you need to talk or anything."

"I know that Max, thanks," Paige smiles back to him. "I mean, I am still in shock by all this but you must be too? After all, you just found out that you have a brother and his father is not exactly your best friend."

Max chuckles back to her. "Yea, I didn't even think about that. I just wanted my Mom to be okay, you know? I was worried about her being in jail. I know what she did was wrong but she is still my Mom."

"I really admire how loyal are you, Max."

Max reaches over and grabs her hand. "When I love, it's forever," he tells her. "I was hoping you'd feel the same way?"

At the doorway, Jacob appears and can hear the conversation unfolding between Max and his former fiancé. He freezes and listens to what they are saying.

"You know that I've always cared for you, Max. This is all just…complicated."

"But you and I, we don't have to be complicated, Paige. I still love you."

Paige looks back at him and smiles. "I can't deny that I don't care about you, Max, because I do. I always have."

Jacob sighs to himself, hearing Paige admit that she still cares about Max. He had hoped that by exposing Max's lies, she would wake up and realize that he is a loser and a low life. But that clearly hasn't happened. He moves into the hallway and runs his hands through his hair.

"If you think you're going to have Paige," he whispers to himself. "You have another thing coming Max. I will prove to her that you're nothing and worthless. Just watch me."

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

Lukas pours himself another cup of coffee while he stands in the living room of the mansion that he shares with his husband and his sister. He can't believe everything that happened the day before: Donovan came home from the hospital, using a wheelchair because he still can't feel his legs, and he and Jasper had sex for the first time, which had been building for weeks. He, immediately, regretted it, but Jasper agreed to keep their fling a secret. Later, however, he was annoyed when he caught Jasper giving Donovan a neck massage. He doesn't know what kind of game Jasper is playing, but he knows that it is a dangerous one. On top of all of that, Meggan stunned him by revealing that Frederick is alive. The father that treated him so poorly, didn't die all those years ago. Lukas feels like his emotions are all over the map.

"You look a million miles away," a voice calls out from behind him. Lukas turns and sees Jasper moving into the living room. "Olly just went down for his morning nap. How are you?"

"I've been better," Lukas admits to him. "It was a very long day yesterday."

"That it was," Jasper nods back to him. "Is Donovan home?"

"No," Lukas replies to him quickly. "He had a physical therapy appointment. I have to go get him shortly. But that means that we have a few minutes to talk, Jasper."

Jasper looks back at him and immediately gets lust in his eyes; he can't stop thinking about the previous day when Lukas made love to him. He had wanted Lukas since they first met; for them to have such hot sex, was everything Jasper wanted, even though he knows that Lukas is a married man.

"We can talk…or we can…" he moves up to Lukas.

"I told you yesterday that it we can't do that again," Lukas reminds him quickly. "But I still need to know what the hell you were thinking last night…"

Jasper arches his eyebrow back to him. "What are you talking about? I kept you and I a secret from Donovan, just like I said I would. You have nothing to worry about."

"Then why the hell did you start to rub Donovan's shoulders?"

"Because, if I didn't, he would have thought something was up," Jasper defends himself. "Trust me, Lukas, there is only one guy I'm interested in, and I'm looking at him."

Lukas looks back at him quickly. "You're still interested?"

Jasper moves up to him and rubs Lukas' chest. "Of course, I am," he looks back into his eyes. "Very interested. I loved every second of us, Lukas. And, I think if you're honest, you want more too. It was too hot and good for you not to want more of me."

Lukas shakes his head back to him before Jasper looks back into his eyes. "Just be honest," Jasper licks his lips. "Donovan's not home; Meggan isn't home; Olly is sleeping…give in to what you want, what you really, really want."

Lukas looks back at him and feels his heart skip a beat. Can he really have sex with Jasper again? He doesn't know but he finds himself leaning in and kissing the nanny again, passionately.

The Sugarbowl

"I don't know how to process all of this," Andrew admits to Daisy as they sit across from one another in the back booth of the coffeehouse. Daisy just told Andrew that Vinny was killed at the Calimo cabin while he was fighting for his gun with Bryce; Bryce, was also shot, and is still in critical condition at the hospital. Andrew was just coming to terms with the fact that Vinny was alive; he couldn't believe that his uncle was posing as Brett for over a year. Now, to find out that Vinny is dead, it is a hard pill to swallow.

"I know, I'm sorry that I had to be the one to give you this news," Daisy looks over at him. "I know that you and Vinny were close once upon a time."

"We were trying to become close," Andrew nods back to her. "He was really the only family I had left. I…I just can't believe that he would lie about being Brett for so long and now he's dead? He will never get to answer for what he has done. It doesn't seem fair."

"Hey, just know that you're not alone in this, okay?" Daisy tries to smile at him. "And, remember, that Vinny fooled all of us. If anyone should have known that he was alive, it should have been me."

"Don't beat yourself up," Andrew tells her. "Like you said, he fooled us all. I guess all that is left is to put him to rest and try to remember the good times? There's nothing else that will ever connect us to Vinny again."

Daisy gulps as she thinks about the fact that she is pregnant with Vinny's child; she hasn't told anyone that she is pregnant yet because she is still coming to terms with it. She is, however, going to give birth to a child whose father tormented her for years.

"You're right," she whispers back to him. "We have to move on; all of us do because Vinny is never coming back."

The Davenport House; Trenyce and Andrew's Home

"Yes, if you could please hurry," Chris says into his cell phone as he paces back and forth in the living room of the Davenport house. With morning finally here, the power has seemingly come back on, so he was able to call 9-1-1 so an ambulance could come and get Trenyce and the baby to the hospital. He looks over at Trenyce, who still hasn't come too yet. He knows that the longer she is unconscious, the worse shape she could be in. "Yes, I'll be ready. Thanks!"

He hangs up the phone and moves back over to the woman he is in love with and bends down. "Come on Trey," he pleads with her. "Wake up? Please, wake up. Tell me that you're okay. Wake up so you can meet your new baby. Please wake up, Trenyce," he says, getting more and more worried with each passing moment.

Soon, her eyes flutter and she moans a little. "Thank God," Chris gasps back to her. "You're going to be fine, Trey. I promise you. Everything is going to be fine."
