Episode 10: Vanessa's Mother
Tiffany found out that Bryant killed Shanna and planned on framing Dravis
for everything, but her life was in major danger when Bryant went psycho and
kidnapped her in her own room. Things looked grim when Bryant was about to
do the same thing that he did to Shanna, to her.
- Jamie decided that enough was enough and it was time to take action against the one who did her wrong. She sets up a plan to lure Terry into drinking with her. Before he realizes it, she drugs him, and places his unconcious body in Shanna's crime scene room. Then she places a call to Ryley Schantz, saying that Terry admitted to killing Shanna.
- Timothy's plan to be alone with Debra works when Tiffany doesn't show up like planned. The two begin to reconcile and decide to extend things back to their own home. The two think about being together...forever.
- Ryley appologizes to Dravis for making the mistake of arresting him. He explains that it was only because he was a suspect in questioning. Dravis is a free man. When he leaves, a press conference begins to heat up, but one of the reporters looks awfully familiar to him. Dravis thinks that he sees Shanna.
(Outside of the Kensington Way, Police Department)
(to the reporters)
This conference is done!
Hey! Hey you!
Someone stop that woman!
I swear- I swear I saw Shanna walking alive.
What the hell do you think you’re doing? Get your hands off of me!
(out of breath)
I’m really sorry. I- I thought that you were someone else.
(to the caller on the other end)
I screwed up! He saw me. Dravis Heidel knows that I’m alive.
- - -
Just put the bat down. Did you hear on the radio? They captured someone else.
You told me that you thought that I was dignified. I was at one point. I had it all. A good job. New marriage. My family was coming back together. However, I had a dark secret hidden in my closet. It was the skeleton of Shanna’s dead body! I loved her with all my heart.
That tear shows it. Dravis is obviously going to be released and he’s probably on his way home. I’m sure he’ll be escorted by the police. Do you think it would look really good if they walked in here and saw that? Dravis would have to save me.
What are you trying to say Tiff? That my tear shows that I’m vulnerable! Or is that what you’re wishing.
I’m saying that if you let me go...I promise that no one, and especially not the Kensington Way police department, would find out about what you did.
So it would be our little secret? That I was the one who killed the town whore. I’m sure you would want to tell your husband. You would love to tell him about all of this.
Just let me go Bryant.
You think too optimistically.
And you should too.
The only thing that I can think of is that no one found out about my little secret, until you walked in.
And no one will have to know about it. Ever.
I’m supposed to take you’re word? I will agree with you on something. We are going to pretend like none of this ever happened. You want to make everything look like it was believable? Well we sure as hell can do it. You’re going to write Dravis a note, explaining to him, that you have to work very late and you don’t know when you’re coming back.
What are you going to do with me?
I truly believe that you want to be sincere. Maybe you just want to escape and pretend like none of this ever happened.
The only thing that I want, is to make sure that you’re okay.
Now Tiffany, you know that’s a bold faced lie!
You just had to walk in! You just had to ruin everything.
- - -
That was nice.
Yes...yes it was. It’s just a shame that it took so long for us to realize that we needed our love back into our lives.
You and I were going through some things.
We really never discussed this when we were fighting.
That’s because all we did was fight with one another. Sometimes, I just didn’t feel like fighting with you, which is why I ran away from how I felt.
You know that I was willing to hear what you had to say.
I tried so hard to apologize for what I did to you. Or at least I wanted to. The reason why I did it was because...it was an accident. Then you caught me in the act and I thought Shanna really felt something for me. At that time, my mind was in such a weird messed up state, that when you threw me out, Shanna was what I wanted.
Well, what a mistake that was.
And I realized that sometime ago. Somehow I never caught on that she was just trying to use me to get control over my business.
Which is why I don’t believe for one second that Dravis had anything to do with her murder.
Yeah. I agree with you on that one.
Another reason why Shanna wanted you, was probably because she knew how good you were to me. I’m sure she felt something more than just lust and greed.
Is this the way you wanted things to turn out?
Of course. There’s nothing I would like more then to have you in my arms again. Not even Bryant Barrone could hold a torch to you.
What a compliment. I’m glad too, because I wouldn’t want it any other way.

(Barone Living Room)
It was just a dream.
Jamie what happened?! Are you alright?
I’m fine. I just had a nightmare that’s all.
You’ve been acting kind of strange lately. I can tell when something is bothering you. Now that you’re having nightmares and you keep things from your uncle and I, it’s obvious that there’s something eating away at you.
You’re not my mother!
Don’t touch me! We’ve already seen what happened when you put your hands one me before.
I thought that you and I were making a break through.
(giving in to Carmen)
You seriously want to know what’s wrong with me?
Yes...yes I do. I know that when I wasn’t there for you all those years, I lost something, and now it’s came to bite me in the ass. I lost your love and your trust and now hopefully you’ll let me gain that back. So, please tell me what’s wrong. I’m here for you.
There’s that one saying from that Tom Cruise movie, "A Few Good Men." You want the truth? Well you can’t handle the truth.
I have hidden something so terrible, that I don’t even think you could go through with it if it ever happened to you.
Then what is it? Whatever it is-
You’re here for me. Is being there for me really enough? The other night I went to a party. Everything was going well. I met this interesting looking guy. Kind of like that punk rocker who you know is a bad boy. We started talking, I take a sip of my drink, and just like that-
I- I find myself naked in his bed. And he’s next to me! Holding me like we were going out.
Oh my god, Jamie!
Then I got all my dignity to sever and muster up so much courage to leave, without being noticed by anyone. The room was dark but I had to find every single piece of clothing that I had peeled off of me when I was unconscious and taken advantage of! That’s right! I was used for sex!
Who was it? Who the hell would do such a vile and disgusting thing to you?
His name is Terry Lomburgh.
That name- He’s all over the news. He was arrested for Shanna Schoolor’s murder. Supposedly he was a secret lover of her’s.
How about I let you in on a little secret. I know something about that.
What ever it is Jamie, you can’t tell a soul. No one should know what you know! Whatever it is. This case is so serious and your uncle would be crushed.
We’re here to investigate more on Terry Lomburgh ma’am, and we believe that Jamie Wyze may be a prominent source. May I came in?
- - -
Wonder where she is.
Dravis, I’m happy for your return but I will not be able to celebrate with you...not yet at least. Unfortunately I was called into work late and do not know what time I’ll be home. Love you, Tiffany.
Kensington Way Library please. Yes, you can connect me.
Kensington Way Public Library, this is Georgetta, how may I help you.
I could spot that sweet hummingbird voice anyway. Georgetta Smalls, how are you?
Mister Heidel, is that you?
You better believe it.
I heard about your release. I’m so happy for you.
It seems I should be happy for you. Having a new job and all.
The library is a nice little gig. It pays the bills. So, what can I do for you Mister Heidel?
Well you could connect me to my wife please.
Is she expecting your call?
Let me go and look for her.
I’m sorry Mister Heidel I couldn’t find your wife.
She should be there. I got a note from her saying that she had to work late.
Oh...she works here. I’m new to the job.
It’s kind of important.
I’m sorry Mister Heidel but I can’t find her.
That’s impossible. Would you check the schedule for me?
I have it right here. I’m looking but I don’t see her name.
There must be some mistake. If you see her, please tell her to call me.
Sure thing Mister Heidel. It’s almost as if-
You’re working for me again.
Silly isn’t it? Well I hope all is well. Have a good night Mister Heidel.
What the hell is going on?
- - -
Not to sound coy Mister Schantz, but do you have a warrant?
I could get one printed up as soon as possible. However, we really don’t need to acquire one if only talk to a source. May I come in?
Of course. I was just making sure that-
No need to explain yourself.
Sure thing. Please excuse me.
Do you know why I’m here?
I have a pretty good idea. And the fact that I made that phone call to you...well I was expecting to see you sooner.
We’ve been busy. I’m here to question you more on Terry Lomburgh.
Anything you want to know.
How well did you know him?
I met him at a party about a month ago. He seemed like a sleaze but we became friends.
The type who was a womanizer.
When you called me, you were scared out of your mind, why? How did that phone call come about?
Terry and I were drinking this one night. Just the two of us. At least he was because he’s the legal age limit, and I wasn’t because-
You don’t have to justify anything. Please continue.
He got really drunk. I know that when people drink that they start to get emotional. He was beyond emotional. Then he started to confess things. Saying how sorry he felt about sleeping with Shanna. He was telling me that- He did something very bad.
So he didn’t come out and say that he murdered her?
Not at first. I kind of dragged that one out of him. He gave me a call saying that he was going over to her apartment because he left something there. That was about the time I called you.
Thank you for your time. We’re pretty sure that he is the one. Thanks to your words, it’s clear that the two were a secret item.
Oh Terry! You should have learned not to mess with me.
- - -
(Bryant’s car, nighttime)
You awake yet?
Yeah. Where are we?
We couldn’t continue in your house because your husband was soon to be coming home and we definitely couldn’t go into my house. My home is occupied by my wife and my niece and since they know nothing about what I really did...I don’t think that they would understand.
Whatever it is-
Shut up and listen!
This place is where I used to escape to when I wanted some alone time. However you won’t even remember it. A nice friend of mine, who is a scientist slash doctor, gave me this tricky little drug that can alter the mind. Some call it a mind alter, hell it could even be called a haluicigen.
Are you going to inject me?
You went to work as planned. You had to stay late. It was the boss’s orders. Nothing happened last night or today. Absolutely nothing.
- - -
What do you want?
We’re getting closer daddy.
Closer to what?
Answers! Answers to your real life problems.
This is just getting too weird for words.
This is just the beginning.
You know for a little girl, you sure are mature.
Thank you daddy. Come along.
Where are we going?
(Dravis follows her as she walks into a hospital room. The beeping noises of an I.V. monitor was filling his ears. The room was dark, except for the hospital bed that was occupying the whole room that had a light blue glistening curtain around the bed’s rim.)
Whose room is this?
It’s mommy’s room.
Why are we here?
Mommy’s behind everything. Mommy’s behind everything. All your problem, she has caused. All your plans, she has paused. With one flip of the switch, she did you wrong. This is the bitch who’s behind everything all along.
Let’s find out who you are!
On the next episode of Kensington Way:
Vanessa's mother is revealed and everything begins to change!
