Night covers Langley, Virginia like a blanket. Templeton and Chely Peck are standing at the window watching the upcoming thunderstorm. Chely slowly runs her hands up and down her arms. Face catches her hands in his.

Kissing her cheek, he says, “You’ve been quiet since we got home.” Chely turns her head for a moment. “Just been doing some thinking.” She says to Face. “Kinda vague, don’t ya think?” he asks now concerned. Face slips over to the radio and turns it on. Let It Rain by Mark Chestnut slowly fills the room.

Storm clouds rising flash of lightning rattles that ole porch swing
Window open curtains dancing just you and me
As the thunder rolls on we'll just hold on neath the light of this candle flame.
Oh this is perfect what a night let it rain

Chely walks over to the fireplace. Face studies his wife intently. After starting a fire, she sits on the couch. Face walks over to her and sits by her side. “Has Stockwell or Carla said anything to you?” he asks.

“No.” “Has Frankie?” “No.” Concern now hits him. “The cancer?” he asks worriedly. “No.” Sighing in frustration, Face says, “Baby, you got to tell me what it is so we can work through it.” Chely faces her husband of four months.

“We’re going to have a baby, Face.” Chely says as she quickly turns back to the window. Face sighs. “One day we will have children. It can’t be much longer before Stockwell comes through with our pardons.” He says. “That day will be here in about 8 ½ months.” She says.

“What do you mean 8 ½ months?” he asks. Chely sighs as she continues to look out the window.

Let your love pour down down all around let it
Fill my heart let it flood this house
Let the world outside just wash on by we'll just lay right here and hold on tight
Let it rain
Let it rain

"Chely?" Face asks. She briefly turns around to face her husband of only four months. "Templeton, I'm pregnant." Chely says as she quickly turns back to the window.

Old man weather had it together when he planned this night
From out of the blue he set the mood turned down the lights
Just when we thought the storm was over here it comes again
So lay back down in these arms let it rain

"Pregnant?" he repeats. "Are you sure?" he asks. "The doctor confirmed it today." She turns around and looks at Face. "That's why I asked Murdock to take me to the doctor instead of you."

Chely looks out of the window again. Face moves closer to her. He takes her in his arms and they gently sway to the music. "I know that we talked about having children once the pardons came." Chely pauses. "Go on, sweetheart." Face says trying to encourage Chely to speak her mind.

"I was on board for that, but when Carla and Dad announced that they were having a baby, I guess I got jealous." Chely turns around to face Temp. "Does that make me a bad person?"

Face gently raises her chin to his eye level. "That doesn't make you a bad person. If anything, that just shows how human you are. Everybody wants to have a family." Chely sighs. "You're not mad with me are you?" she asks not knowing what to expect from Face.

He wraps his arms around her. "Mad? I could never be mad with you about something like this. Because of you, I'm going to be a daddy." Tears well up in his eyes. Chely fights back tears of her own. "And because of you, I'm going to be a mommy."

Let your love pour down down all around let it
Fill my heart let it flood this house
Let the world outside just wash on by we'll just lay right here and hold on tight
Let it rain
Let it rain

"Let it rain." Face and Chely say together. They kiss.
