The Glubbs House; Shane & Robin's Home

"Please, Shane, I'm begging you, tell me that what Adam is claiming isn't true," a stunned Robin pleads with her husband for more answers. Shane just revealed to her that the reason he threated to sue her for custody of Dominique is because Helen told him to do it; Adam, then, said that Shane was working with Helen to break up Adam and Robin, which has successful. Robin hopes that Shane didn't scheme with Helen to ruin her relationship with Adam; there has to be another reason why he threatened to sue for custody of their daughter. "Please tell me you didn't purposely work with Helen to end my relationship with Adam?"

"He can't tell you that because it would be a lie!" Adam yells over at Shane, still furious by what he and Helen did. If it wasn't for the two of them, he believes that he and Robin would be married by now.

"Can you mind your own business?" Shane shouts back to Adam. "This is between me and my wife."

"Mind my own business?" Adam chuckles back to him. "You wouldn't even be married to Robin if it wasn't for your meddling! She would be my wife by now…so yea, this is my business!"

"Stop this!" Robin shrieks at them. "Stop this right now!"

She moves up to Shane and grabs his shoulders. "You look me in the eyes and tell me that it's not true," Robin demands from her husband. "Tell me!"

"I…I can't…" Shane whispers back to her. "I'm so sorry Robin but everything that Adam said is true."

The Pampa Grill

"It is nice to see you out of the hospital," Andy tells his sister as they sit across from one another at a table in the restaurant. He knows that she is still struggling with the fact that she just suffered a miscarriage. The loss of the child is bringing up a lot of memories about Blake's tragic death years earlier. "But you can't fool me that you're completely healed from the accident."

Kim picks up her glass of white wine and takes a long sip. "You know me so well. Physically, I have mended but I am still grieving my child. I don't know if I will ever get over this."

"Just be sure that you're kind to yourself right now," Andy tells his sister. "A lot of self-care is required right now."

Kim tries to nod back to him. "It's hard to imagine myself masking in a bubble bath right now," she says back to him.

"How is Robbie handling all of this?"

Kim sighs back to him as she knows that she has been blaming her husband for the loss of their child because he was the one who hired Tara to scare Cheresa in the first place. In her mind, Robbie set all of this into motion by hiring Tara. Now, her unborn child is dead and she thinks that Robbie is at fault.

"I don't know," Kim admits to him quickly. "I sent him away last night and he didn't come to get me today, which surprised me. I thought he would have been at the hospital."

"Kim," Andy looks back at his sister. "Do not push your husband away right now. He is going through as much pain as you are, don't forget that."

"I am sure he is," she takes another sip of her wine. "But the fact is, none of this would be happening if Robbie didn't hire that woman to scare Cheresa! Robbie put this all into motion, Andy, and as a result, my child is dead! I…I don't know if I will ever be able to forgive him, and that is the truth."

"If that's true then where does that leave your marriage?"

Kim sighs back to her brother and shakes her head in confusion. "I have no idea and right now, that doesn't bother me."

Twin Peaks Police Station

Robbie paces back and forth in the small jail cell that he is in. He still can't believe that Simona actually arrested him for arranging Cheresa's kidnapping because that is not what happened at all. He did hire Tara to scare Cheresa after she signed the modelling contract at Robertson Enterprises instead of Roboto but he never imagined that Tara would take matters in her own hands and kidnap the younger woman. Now, he's in jail and he has no idea what is going to do next. He just hopes that they finish booking him because that is when he will get his phone call. He has to call Natasha; she will ensure he gets out of jail immediately. He sighs as he thinks that he should call Kim, but given the state of their relationship, he isn't sure that she would help him, which upsets him.

"Isn't this a sight for sore eyes," a voice calls out as they approach the jail cell. Robbie looks out of the bars that trap him inside the cell and sees Greg moving up to him.

"Greg? What the hell are you doing here?" Robbie asks him quickly. "And who let you in here?"

"I was stopping by to see Simona to see if she has found Tara," he reveals to him as he moves closer to the jail cell. "And she told me that she arrested you. I had to see for myself, so I came to see you."

"Look Greg, I know that you're upset with what happened, but you and I, we worked together to save Cheresa," Robbie reminds him of how they found Cheresa at the storage locker. "You know that I didn't arrange for the kidnapping; that was all Tara!"

"What I do know," Greg grits his teeth back to him. "Is that you brought that woman into my daughter's life in the first place. If you hadn't try to scare Cheresa, she never would have been kidnapped in the first place."

"This is all a misunderstanding! You have to believe me, Greg."

"You're going to pay for what you did to Cheresa," Greg replies to him, ignoring Robbie's pleads. "You're finally going to get what's coming to you, Robbie."

"Greg…"

"No," Greg cuts him off again. "You fucked my wife behind my back, that's when I knew you weren't trust worthy. Then you made a play for Kim while she and I were together. And now, this? Oh no, this is the very last straw Robbie. You have interfered with me and my family for the very last time, and I'm going to make sure of that."

Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel; Las Vegas, Nevada

Abby looks around the small chapel and feels an excitement building inside of her. She's wearing a simple white lace dress because she is about to marry Dominick; she never believed that she would actually marry Dominick, yet here she is. Their entire relationship has moved at a very fast pace, but she isn't upset by that. She knows that this relationship is going to ensure that she continues to have the safety net that she has always enjoyed. After Greg had to pay back the IRS the millions that Brooke owed, Abby was worried that she wouldn't have money but being romanced by Dominick has changed that for her. Now, nothing will stop her from marrying him. She needs this for many reasons.

"You look a million miles away," Dominick moves up to his fiancé and grabs her hand. "You're not having second thoughts are you?"

Abby looks back at him and immediately thinks he looks dashing in his tuxedo. "Of course not, I was just thinking about Olly, to be honest."

"Baby Olly? Why were you thinking of him?"

"I heard that Donovan was in a car accident and I just hope everyone is okay," Abby tells him. "I know that I'm not supposed to be in the baby's life but I can't help but still care about them."

"That's because you're a beautiful woman with a wonderful soul and spirit," Dominick smiles to her. "And that's why I can't wait to marry you."

Abby leans in and kisses him on the lips. "Thank you for saying that. I want to marry you too, Dominick. More than you know."

Dominick chuckles back to her. "Well, we are here in Vegas at the chapel…all we have to do is walk down that aisle and we can get married."

Abby stands up and grabs his hand. "Then, let's walk down this aisle together. And then we can start the rest of our lives, together."

"That sounds like magic," Dominick stands up. They slowly walk down the aisle and approach the minister, who is dressed like Elvis. Dominick smiles at Abby as they arrive at the altar and takes a deep breath as he is about to get married, again.

Twin Peaks General Hospital

Victoria slowly moves up to the hospital room where Bryce is still recovering from being shot. As she walks, she can't help but remember her run-in with Donovan earlier; she is worried about her brother not being able to feel his legs. She hates that he is confined to his wheelchair and hopes that the physical therapy that Donovan is going through will help him get back on his feet, literally.

She opens the door and moves inside the hospital room, realizing that another man that she cares about is still fighting for his life too. She looks at Bryce and sighs to herself. There has still been no change in his condition and she is starting to wonder if he is getting better at all.

"Bryce," she says as she approaches him on the bed. "You still haven't woken up yet and I'm starting to get worried. Please, please, come back to me."

She looks at him when she hears him moan a little. "Bryce?" she asks him as his eyes start to flutter open. "Bryce, yes, please wake up!"

Before Bryce can open his eyes, they move back inside his head and his monitor starts beeping rapidly. "Bryce?" Victoria cries to him. "Bryce! Please, hang on! Please don't leave me!"

Madeline rushes into the hospital room and sees Victoria hovering over Bryce. "Victoria, I need you to leave so I can examine the patient, please wait outside!"

Victoria rushes to the back of the hospital room and covers her mouth as she watches Madeline try to get Bryce monitor's to return to normal.

"You have no idea how glad your father and I are that you're safe," Trenyce sits up in her hospital bed and looks at Cheresa, who is visiting her mother while Chris and Dawn are also in the room. Trenyce knows that she was worried when Cheresa was missing; she had no idea that she had been kidnapped and she has no idea what she would have done is something had happened to her.

"I am glad to be home too," Cheresa smiles back to her. "And, I can't believe how cute my new brother is."

Chris chuckles to her. "Yea, he is a cutie, that's for sure."

"Have you thought of any names?" Dawn asks Trenyce, knowing that she hasn't called her son anything other than her new baby.

"To be honest, everything has happened so quickly that I haven't had much time to think about it," Trenyce tells them. "I guess I have to get on that, hey?"

"There's time," Cheresa smiles back to her. "Listen, Dawn and I are going to get going, but I'll be back soon. You call me if you need anything."

"I will baby, thanks for stopping by," Trenyce grabs her hand. "I really love you."

"I love you too," Cheresa replies to her.

Cheresa and Dawn turn to leave the hospital room when Andrew moves inside. Cheresa immediately sees him and can't help but think about how she saw Andrew and Trenyce kissing the morning she was kidnapped. She did confront Andrew but nothing else was resolved; seeing Andrew here now, it's all coming back to her.

"Cheresa, thank God you're okay," Andrew says as he comes up to her and hugs her. "We can talk about everything later, okay?" he whispers into her ear.

Cheresa uneasily nods back to him. "We are just heading out, chat soon."

Once Cheresa and Dawn are outside of the hospital room, they pause and Dawn looks at her girlfriend. "Is everything okay? You seem concerned."

Cheresa sighs back to Dawn. "After everything I've been through, I just don't want anymore secrets," Cheresa tells her. "I want everyone to be open and honest."

***

Back inside the hospital room, Trenyce is resting leaving Chris and Andrew alone. "She's had along morning, so it's good for her to get some sleep," Chris tells Andrew, who nods back to him. "And it gives us some time to talk."

Andrew looks back at him in surprise. "What's up?"

"The night Trey gave birth," Chris replies to him quickly. "She was in and out of consciousness a lot because of her panic attack."

"Yea, that's what you said before," Andrew tells him. "We are all so grateful that you were with her."

"One time she was saying something while she was coming too," Chris looks back at him with intent.

"What did she say?"

"Your name," Chris says. "She kept calling out your name, Andrew. So, can you tell me why Trenyce would be calling out your name?"

The Glubbs House; Shane & Robin's Home

"I…I don't believe this," Robin gasps back to Shane, who just revealed that he and Helen worked together to break up her relationship with Adam. "You're admitting it? You and Helen schemed to break me and Adam up? This entire time you've been lying to me?"

"Just hear me out, okay?" Shane pleads with her. "I wanted our daughter to have a stable up bringing! She almost died when she was born."

"You don't get to do that," Robin tells him quickly as a tear falls down her cheek. "You don't get to bring our daughter into this, Shane! You know damn well that I would do anything for Dominique."

"And that's why I went along with Helen's plan," Shane says back to her. "I wanted our daughter to come first. And yes, I love you and wanted to be with you."

Robin's hand slaps Shane's face hard. "Don't you dare say that you love me!" she shrieks back to him. "You don't love me! You don't know the meaning of the word!"

"Please Robin…"

"NO!" she cuts him off and glares back to him. "I'm tired of listening to you Shane! This is over! This is all over!"
