Craig is a doctor at Twin Peaks and he has helped various members of the community through different circumstances. He is a respected doctor at TPGH.
On New Year's Eve 2011, he appeared out of the hospital and on a date with Reese.
Craig and Reese continued to casually date each other despite the fact that Reese had an affair with Andy last November. Craig soon grew tired of Reese's constant interaction with Andy and dumped him. Craig later asked Andy out, claiming he was always more interested in him and Reese. Andy, who was recently single, agreed to go out with Craig. On New Years, Reese saw the two together and was livid.
Craig and Andy continued to see each other. Craig soon became jealous of Andy's growing friendship with Donovan as he was plagued with memories of Andy cheating on JC in his last relationship. Andy tried to convince Craig that nothing was going on between him and Donovan. Listening to Andy's words, Craig asked his lover to move in with him. Andy agreed and they moved into Craig's condo. Craig, however, couldn't stop being jealous of Andy's growing friendship with Donovan, despite the two being just friends.
Craig continued to feel jealous of Andy's relationship with Andy despite the fact that it was just a friendship. This jealousy grew when Andy supported Donovan after he was arrested for murder. Andy told Craig that he couldn't let his friend go to jail for a crime he didn't commit. Craig tried to put his jealousy out of his mind but after Donovan was found guilty, he saw the look on Andy's face. Devastated that Andy cared for Donovan, Craig went out and saw a drunk Reese. The two ended up in bed; in the aftermath, Craig realized it was a mistake and he made Reese promise not to say anything. Shortly after, however, Andy found the condom wrapper in the bedroom he shares with Craig. Craig covered with his lover and tried to put the affair behind him. Reese, meanwhile, suffered from guilt and confessed all to Andy. Andy was stunned and walked out on Craig. Craig tried to get back together with him, but Andy refused to listen. On New Year's Eve, Donovan told Craig that Andy and Reese will probably get back together. At the same time, Andy and Reese shared a kiss.
Craig continued to get over Andy in the new year. He asked Donovan out on a date but he said no. The two, however, continued to be put in situations together and they started to grow a little bit closer. Craig was unawre of Donovan's past, which involved a heartbreak. The two were paired together while planning the hospital gala and continued to flirt, despite Craig announcing that he had a boyfriend. Donovan asked Craig who is boyfriend was but Craig kept mum. On the night of the gala, Donovan was shocked to see Craig's new boyfriend: Lukas, who is the same man that Donovan was dating in Europe!
Craig continued to ask Lukas about his previous relationship with Donovan. Lukas finally revealed to him that they broke up because Frederick doesn't know that Lukas is gay. Craig encouraged him to come out, but Lukas refused. Frustrated, Craig lashed out at Donovan but soon apologized. Lukas admitted to Donovan that he finds it hard being with a closeted boyfriend. Craig was upset when he found out, from a third party, that Lukas and Donovan were together during the summer storm. He finally confronted Lukas, who admitted that he still has feelings for Donovan. Craig told him that he had to choose because he didn't want to be anyone's second choice. Lukas admitted to Craig and Donovan that he does love them both. Craig told him that was unacceptable. Craig then kissed Donovan on New Year's Eve.
Craig told Donovan he was tired of waiting for Lukas to make up his mind. Donovan and Andy both told Craig that everything would be better once Lukas came out of the closet. Craig lost hope that Lukas would do that, or make up his mind, so he decided to move on from Lukas altogether. Craig made a pass at Donovan, who was still waiting for Lukas' decision. After Lukas left town, Craig kissed Donovan and told him that nothing was holding them back anymore. On Series Since: 2002 - Present

Cory proposed to long-time girlfriend Natasha, despite having reservations about getting married. She accepted. Her ex, Adam Black, came to town and tried to break the duo up. It failed; they were married in a lavish ceremony. After a minor accident, Natasha was in the hospital. High on drugs, Adam took advantage of her and they had sex. When Natasha realized her mistake, she left the hospital and accidentally drove her car off the bridge. She was presumed dead.
Cory was devastated. Robin helped him through the rough time, and they ended up falling in love. An insecure Robin pressured Cory into a quickie marriage. He agreed. They were married. Natasha returned to Twin Peaks and wanted her life back. Cory was torn between the two women but went back to Natasha.
He continued to be pulled back to Robin during her brief addiction to pills and a blindness spell. He and Natasha agreed to renew their vows, even though he still felt a strong connection to Robin.
He became jealous of Robin's newfound friendship with Will. While Natasha was in the hospital, he stayed at her side. Sofia became concerned for his health and she called Robin to help him get some rest. He went home with Robin, leaving Shane to be with Natasha when she awoke. He stood by Natasha as she got her health back. Meanwhile, Bob told Robin to ask Cory to shoot the new Introspect (Robinís cologne for Roboto) ad at Wild Night. Cory loved the idea of his bar getting the publicity. At the photo shoot, he and Robin made love again. Cory felt guilty, and was more confused then ever. On New Yearís Eve, Natasha went to tell him that she loved him only she said Shaneís name instead.
Natasha and Cory went to the Calimo cabin to get away and try to reconnect. They just missed Robin, who had received photographs of her and Cory making love at the photoshoot. Robin accidentally left them at the cabin, and Natasha found them. She confronted Cory, who admitted his affair. Together, Natasha and Cory realized that they had drifted apart; she fell for Shane and he still loved Robin. They agreed to divorce and remain friends. Cory went after Robin, who told him she wanted nothing to do with him. After talking with Dominick, Cory finally got Robin to hear him out. They made love and soon became engaged. Robin began to model for Roboto, which frustrated Cory as he didn't like the thought of her being viewed by millions of men. While planning the wedding, Robin's mother Melissa returned to town and made it clear that she didn't like Cory. The two married anyways and afterwards, Melissa realized that Cory didn't like Robni modelling. She planned to use it against Cory in hopes to break the two up.
Cory finally admitted to his wife that he didn't like her modelling, but he vowed to support her anyways. At a premier in Twin Peaks, Cory was amazed at Robin's talents in the modelling world. He admitted that he is proud of her and they embraced. Melissa, meanwhile, used the premier as the backdrop of her plan. As Cory and Robin went outside for a red carpet, a man that Melissa hired ran towards Robin and threw acid in her direction. The plan went terribly wrong, however, when the acid hit Robin's face! At the hospital, Melissa planted seeds of doubt in Robin's head that Cory was responsible for the attack. Believing her mother, Robin had Cory arrested. He was shocked that she would believe he would hurt her and vowed to clear his name. He hired Madeline in hopes of proving his innocence. Robin, meanwhile, moved out of the Penthouse and under the influence of Melissa began casually seeing Liam Fitzpatrick. Cory got an SOS text message from Madeline after Karl kidnapped her and took her hostage. He and Robbie saved Madeline before Karl was about to shoot her. Karl soon revealed that his role in the attack and revealed that Cory had nothing to do with it. Robin begged for Cory's forgiveness, but he told her he needed time away from her.
Cory confronted Melissa after the truth came out and she left town after. Robin quickly went to her husband and tried to reunite, but he said he needed more time as he didn't understand her lack of belief in him. He and Madeline continued to grow closer and ended up in bed. Robin soon saw them and was devastated. She went to have her last surgery to remove her scars, which was successful, and called Liam to go on another date with. Cory, meanwhile, told Madeline that he didn't want to have a serious relationship, knowing that he still cared for Robin, which upset Madeline because she had fallen for Cory. Madeline, however, was determined to keep Cory in her life and she started to dig around to see if she could find any information that could help her. She uncovered the fact that Liam performed a paternity test on Leah's child and that Jeff was really Paige's daughter! She confronted Robin with the information, who was stunned to hear this truth. Madeline blackmailed Robin into leaving Cory, or she would tell the truth. Soon, Cory was stunned to get divorce papers from his wife as he thought they were getting back together. Madeline tried to comfort Cory, but he asked her to investigate the real reason that Robin wants the divorce. On New Years Eve, Cory and Madeline went to the masked ball together. Robin, whom was wearing the same mask as Madeline, kissed her husband which made Madeline livid.
In the New Year, Cory and Robin admitted that they loved each other. Robin feared that if she went back to Cory, Madeline would reveal Leah's secret. Robin took the chance and called Madeline's bluff - she and Cory reunited. Soon, Cory proposed to Robin and suggested they renewed their vows. Robin agreed. Madeline was livid. On the day of the wedding, Madeline secretly told Jeff that Paige was really his daughter hoping to break up Cory and Robin's wedding. The wedding flopped, but Cory and Robin wed in a secret ceremony after the truth came out. After the ceremony, Robin and Dominick confessed the truth to Cory: Madeline had been blackmailing her for months with Leah's secret. Cory was horrified. He confronted his former lover, who pleaded with Cory to listen to her case. He told her he would never forgive her nor would they ever be friends. Madeline was crushed. Robin shortly after went back to modelling at Robertson Enterprises. She soon started getting odd fan mail parcels. She was creeped out by them, but Dominick tried to calm her nerves telling her everyone gets odd fan mail. Robin and Cory rejoyced when she learned that she was pregnant! They grew more excited as the baby grew.
Cory and Robin continued to plan for the baby in the New Year. Cory continued to feel uneasy about Robin's fan mail, however. He protested when Robin agreed to do a fan "meet and greet" for Robertson Enterprises after the launch of "Petals" was a success. Robin told him that she would be fine at the meet and greet. However, a smoke bomb went off during the meet and greet ... when the smoke cleared, Robin was gone! Cory worked with Dominick and Robbie to track Robin down at the Calimo cabin. Turns out, Liam Fitzpatrick was her "fan" as he was livid that she dumped him and went back to Cory. When Cory got there, he confronted Liam. Robin ended up pushing him out of the window and Liam fell to his death. Robin was rushed to the hospital, where she tearfully told Cory that while at the cabin she went into labour and the baby was stillborn. Cory was crushed but he supported Robin, who slowlys started to have break downs over the baby's death. Cory slowly started to worry that Robin was losing her mind as a result of the baby's death.
Cory continued to worry about Robin's mental state in the new year. He continued to encourage her to get help but was shocked when she blasted him accused him of not trusting her. To prove her point, Robin moved out and into Dominick's. When Cory visited her, he was shocked to see that she was getting worse. Shortly after, Cory was horrified to learn from Will that Robin got a deadly infection that was taking over her body! Cory tried to come to terms that his wife may die. At Shane and Natasha's wedding, Eva overheard Dominick talking to Will. Realizing what was happening, Eva and Cory raced to Dominick's. They stopped Will from injecting Robin with a drug that would have faked her death; Dominick was going to do to Robin what he did with Felicia years earlier to stop Cory from suffering. Cory blasted Dominick and banned him from Robin's life. Robin's sister, Rebecca, meanwhile returned to town. She told Cory that she and Jason had split up. He offered her a place to stay with him at the penthouse, which she accepted. While she was secretly texting someone, she agreed with Cory that Robin should go to a mental facility. After Robin went away, Rebecca moved her plan into the next phase. Cory caught her wearing her bra and panties and then a bikini. They shared a kiss but Cory told her that they had to just be friends. Soon after, Robin stopped taking Cory's phone calls from the mental hospital. Rebecca offered to go and visit Robin for Cory. When she got back, she told him that Robin was seemingly getting better. Cory wondered why Robin was shutting him out then. Dominick tried to tell Cory that something was going on but Robin's rejection weighted on Cory. On New Year's Eve, Cory gave into temptation and made love to Rebecca.
Cory and Rebecca continued their affair despite knowing that it was wrong. Finally, Cory ended it telling Rebecca that he had to focus on Robin. Shortly after, Robin called Cory and he went to visit her. He was surprised to see how normal Robin was acting until she got her medication. Once that happened, Robin pushed Cory away, leaving Cory confused. He confided in Rebecca, whose feelings for Cory grew. Unbeknownest to Cory, every move he made, Rebecca was telling Melissa, who was plotting. Cory decided to research the drugs Robin was receiving. He was shocked to learn that the drugs being given to Robin were not helping her at all. He decided that he had to take action and save Robin. He broke into the mental hospital and tried to escape with Robin. They were reunited and grew closer as they waited in a heating duct. Shortly after, they were able to escape the hospital. Cory, however, was shot during the escape. He turned out to be fine and he and Robin reunited. Melissa, however, vowed to keep Cory and Robin apart. After reuniting with Robin, Melissa dropped a shocker: Rebecca was pregnant with Cory's baby!
Cory admitted to Robin that he did sleep with Rebecca while she was in the mental hospital. Robin slapped her husband for his betrayal. Cory, however, refused to believe that Rebecca is pregnant and he demanded a pregnancy test from her. The test came back positive. Robin dumped her husband, telling him that she can't over the fact that he slept with her sister. Little did they know that Melissa was using Caroline Fitzpatrick's baby because Rebecca really wasn't carrying a child. Cory vowed to get Robin back. Cory, meanwhile, told Rebecca that he would be there for her during the pregnancy. He took her to the doctor's appointment, but Rebecca claimed she was insecure and wanted to be alone. Cory thought it was odd until he saw Melissa with her. Cory went to Natasha and asked her to get a restraining order against Melissa because he didnít want her around his baby. Cory and Natasha slowly started to grow closer as Robin moved out of the penthouse and she was growing closer to Adam. Cory asked Adam about his relationship with Robin, but he maintained that they were just friends. Cory then spotted Caroline and immediately realized that the woman who shot him was in town. Cory revealed to Robin that he went to Natasha to get a restraining order against Melissa to keep her away from his baby with Rebecca. Robin told him that it's cruel, but Cory continued to suspect something was off because Rebecca wouldn't let him into any of her doctor appointments. Cory and Natasha, meanwhile grew closer. Soon, Melissa called Cory and announced that Rebecca was in labour. Cory raced to the hospital and demanded to be with Rebecca, but Melissa refused. Just as Cory was about to barge in, the doctor announced that a baby girl had been born. While with Rebecca and the baby, Cory noticed that the baby wasn't breathing. He then saw Caroline and demanded to know what was going on. Caroline, being worried about her child, admitted she is the baby's mother. Robin arrived to learn how Melissa and Rebecca were trying to keep Cory and Robin apart. Cory was floored and begged Robin for another chance, after Melissa and Rebecca skipped town. She refused and filed for divorce. Cory was crushed, but Natasha comforted him and they end up in bed. On New Year's Eve, Cory and Natasha kissed, which Shane saw.
Cory questioned Natasha when she was upset about seeing Shane and Cassie kiss on New Year's Eve. He told her that she needed to let it go, but Natasha told him that after everything Cassie put her through, she couldn't allow her back into her life. Cory then got a call that Natasha fell on some ice after a confrontation with Cassie. Cory wondered if Cassie caused Natasha to fall, but when Natasha awoke, she claimed it was an accident. Natasha then tearfully admitted to him that the fall caused her to not be able to have any more children. Cory supported her and to prove his love, he proposed. She accepted. Shortly after, Natasha learned that Jacob had a lung infection that had taken over his right lung and was about to take over his left; if he didn't receive a lung infection, Jacob was going to die. Cory supported a devastated Natasha. Soon, Craig revealed that Jacob had taken a turn for the worse. Shane and Natasha decided to pull Jacob off life support so he could pass with some dignity. At the last minute, Kim and Tyler announced that they would donate a braindead Blake's lungs to Jacob. The transplant worked: Jacob successfully received Blake's lungs. While Shane and Natasha were bonding over the crisis, Cassie began planting seeds of doubt in Cory's mind that the exes might reunite as a result. Cory tried to push it out of his head, but he saw Shane and Natasha in a few close moments and wondered if Cassie was right. Craig then revealed that Jacob should be transferred to a rehab center in New York. Natasha was worried about travelling with Jacob so soon after the transplant, but Cory convinced her to go. Natasha and Shane agreed to go to NYC with Jacob. Cassie, again, told Cory that while in NYC, Shane and Natasha might get back together. While Natasha was in New York, Cassie continued to tell Cory that the situation with Jacob might reunite Natasha and Shane. He tried to shrug her off, but he was worried. When Natasha got home, he asked her about what happened and she said nothing. He believed her. Shortly after, Cory and Natasha married in a simple ceremony. Natasha continued to worry about Shane and Cassie, which annoyed Cory. He told her that he wanted to have a baby with her, which confused her since she learned she couldn't have any more children. Cory suggested that they adopt; Natasha agreed and the couple went on the waiting list. They were discouraged to learn that there were no children to adopt, but instead it might take some time to find a child. After Lukas left town, Craig asked Donovan out on a date. To his surprise, Donovan accepted. They had a good time and ended up in bed. Andy was happy for his friends that they were a new couple. Craig and Donovan then went to Santa Barbara for the double weddings; there, they saw Lukas! Lukas explained he often goes to his childhood home to get away. Craig urged his ex to come out to Frederick, but Lukas said he couldn't. Craig was miffed at Donovan when he took Lukas' side. Back in Twin Peaks, Lukas returned surprising everyone. He admitted that he was ready to out to Frederick, only he didn't take it well. Craig confronted Lukas' father over his actions on the night he was shot and was later questioned by the police. Craig continued to tell Donovan that they could be happy together, but he saw Lukas and Donovan together on New Year's Eve.
Craig was put in a difficult position when Donovan asked him not to reveal to Lukas that they were sexual when they dated. Craig told him that Lukas should figure it out, but he agreed to keep quiet. Then, Craig was questioned by Simona Lopez regarding Frederick's death. Craig and Donovan each had the same story: they were having sex the night Frederick was shot last November. Having an alibi, Craig was off the suspect list. Craig told Andy that he hated lying, but he went along with it. Craig was then the doctor on duty to handle Jacob's lung infection. He had to give Shane and Natasha the bad news that unless Jacob got a lung transplant, the boy would die. Craig was at the hospital during the ice storm. He, along with Victoria, then performed the transplant surgery that took a braindead Blake's lungs and gave them to Jacob. In the aftermath, Jacob started to rebound. Craig, meanwhile, was called to testify at Lukas' trial, after he was arrested for killing Frederick. Craig backed up Donovan's admission that they were in bed together the night Frederick was shot. Craig hated that Lukas learned the way that he did. Craig was then shocked when Lukas was found guilty. Jacob, meanwhile, started to do better at the hospital. Craig told Shane and Natasha that Jacob should be transferred to a rehab center in New York City. At first, Natasha was worried about travelling with Jacob so soon after the surgery, but she agreed to it. Craig kissed Donovan, but was told that Donovan still loved Lukas, despite him being in jail. Shortly after, Lukas was released from jail and Craig was surprised when Lukas broke things off with Donovan as he was upset that Donovan confessed being lovers with Craig on the witness stand of the trial. Craig told Lukas to grow up, but Lukas stood firm. Craig kissed Donovan again, but Donovan told him he was still in love with Lukas. Shortly after, however, Andy confessed to Craig that Lukas had kissed him and he enjoyed it. Craig revealed this to Donovan, and they ended up in bed together.
Craig woke up next to Donovan on New Year's Day and assumed that they were going to be together going forward, only Donovan still had feelings for Lukas and told Craig that their sex was a mistake. Soon after, Craig saw Andy and Lukas together and assumed that they were a couple, so he told this to Donovan. Shortly after, however, Andy arranged a date for Donovan and Lukas and they reunited. They told Craig, who lashed out at them, unaware Victoria heard. Wanting an escape from Donovan and Lukas, Craig went to Las Vegas with some friends and partied hard. He woke up in his hotel room naked with a stranger and he realized that he had unprotected sex. Upon returning to Twin Peaks, he met with Donovan and agreed to put the past behind them. Then, Chip, Craig's Vegas lover, showed up in Twin Peaks and revealed that he discovered he was HIV positive after their one night stand. Craig realized that he had to get tested and went to see Victoria, unaware her multiple personality, Brandy, had taken over. Craig went to Victoria, who was under Brandy's control, to get tested after Chip revealed to him that he was HIV positive. Brandy told Craig that he was positive, which left Craig shocked and devastated. Brandy started treating him immediately and Craig started feeling very ill. Donovan, Lukas and Andy rallied around his friend. Craig continued to feel ill; Brandy gave him different drugs to try to make him feel better. Shane, meanwhile, was worried that Craig was so sick so quickly. He offered to look at Craig's medical file as a second opinion, which Craig agreed too. Lukas and Craig, meanwhile, grew closer in the wake of his illness. Shane reviewed his file and realized that he wasn't HIV positive at all; Shane wondered why Victoria would misdiagnosis Craig. Craig then took a turn for the worse and was placed on an IV drip.
Craig was left reeling when he discovered that he didn't have HIV after all. He wanted Victoria to lose her medical license for the hell he put her through. Lukas was supporting Craig during this time and they grew closer. Soon, however, Craig had a change of heart when he realized that Victoria's alter egos were actually responsible. He and Lukas continued to grow closer, however.
