The docks has been a regular setting for many
confrontations between the Scorpios. Here, it's the day after Valentine's Day, 1991.
Robert's finally been untied by Frisco (after Anna refused to do it because of Robert's
remarks that he'd dismember her) and heads down to the docks.
There, Robert and the police try to calm down the protesters as the ship
approaches. Hearing that the Greenbelts are using Kelly's as their meeting place, Robert
starts to leave to, but stops when a cheeky Frisco makes a shooting remark saying
"Last night looked like fun." Picking up a crushed valentine off the
ground, Robert reflects on his Valentine night with Anna and smiles. He makes to
toss the valentine aside, but then decides to keep it, symbolic of his not wanting to
throw away his memory of that night (which he later lovingly refers to as the St.
Valentine Day massacre).
After Robert blasts Robin for helping make protest signs at Kelly's Diner,
she runs home and blabs all to her mum, who decides to use it as an opportunity to
challenge Robert. The two are still fighting their attraction for one another, but yet
they find any excuse in order to see one another. Marching to the docks with the
protesters, she comes face to face with her angry ex. Refusing to leave, Robert tells
her to stay out of the way, mumbling she might get hurt. Thrilled that she got him to
admit he's worried about her safety, the two are interrupted when the Greenbelt protest
gets out of hand and the ELQ Tracey explodes. This is also a memorable day in that
Robert stuns Anna with the news that the man he just shoved back into the water is his
long lost brother, Mac.
