Steffy: Dad. Thank god.

Ridge: Hi. Was surprised to get your text. Thought you were on your business trip.

Steffy: Uh, yeah, yeah, I cancelled it.

Ridge: Cancelled it, huh? So I guess you already know.

Steffy: Know what?

Ridge: Grandad and quinn are back together.

Steffy: As if this day couldn’t get any worse.

Ridge: So I guess you didn’t know. So what’s going on? Door’s locked for the first time in years and… you seem rattled. Where’s finn?

Steffy: I asked him to leave.

Paris: Finn? I was just coming in and I saw you through the window. What are you doing in the guesthouse? Trying to get away from the heat? Oh, um, is everything okay?

Finn: I’m, uh, I’m giving steffy some space.

Paris: Space? Why? Did you get in a fight?

Quinn: Hey.

Eric: Hey.

Quinn: You know what I was thinking we could do tonight? I was thinking maybe we could watch a movie. Have some popcorn, curl up with each other in the screening room.

Eric: Sure.

Quinn: Yeah? But first, I was thinking maybe what we could do is take a little swim. It’s such a beautiful evening.

Eric: Been a long, hot day hasn’t it?

Quinn: Yeah, it has.

Eric: Sure. I’ll get a swimsuit.

Quinn: Whoa. Who said anything about swimsuits? It’s just the two of us. All we need is each other and maybe a pitcher of martinis, you know? Get us nice and relaxed.

Eric: You think a martini would help our cause?

Quinn: It couldn’t hurt.

Eric: Good idea.

Quinn: I don’t want you to have a care in the world. We’re going to get through this together. Who knows, maybe tonight we’ll even have a breakthrough.

Eric: I appreciate so much you’re trying to help me with this. Coping with it on my own for so long, so many months.

Quinn: I know. I wish you’d confided in me sooner.

Eric: I wasn’t ready, quinn.

Quinn: I understand.

Eric: Yeah.

Quinn: But now that you’ve finally made me aware of what you’re going through, you gotta let me help you through it. I’m your wife, eric.

Eric: I just don’t see a solution on the horizon. I don’T. I’ve done everything. I’ve talked to doctors, psychiatrists and I just– it’s still so hard to talk about.

Quinn: Well, you don’t have to talk about it. All you have to do is let me love you.

Paris: Wow, I can’t believe it. You and steffy never argue.

Finn: No, we didn’T. It wasn’t like that. It was worse. I broke her trust. I gave her my word that I would protect her and I failed.

Paris: Okay, finn, what exactly happened?

Finn: Steffy walked in on my birth mother holding hayes.

Paris: No. Wait, you’re serious? Sheila was here?

Ridge: You asked finn to leave? Why?

Steffy: I just needed some time to think. He’s spending the night in the guesthouse.

Ridge: Oh, well that’s surprising. You guys always seemed to be in sync.

Steffy: Yeah, we are. That’s not the problem.

Ridge: Well, whatever it is, I’m sure you’ll work it out and you’ll be better for it.

Steffy: The sad part is not about finn and me. Our relationship. It’s much worse than that, dad. It’s about sheila.

Think wearing less makeup

means no need for a wipe?

[ Romantic music ]

Quinn: You are a wonderful, loving, sexy man. And you’ve always fulfilled me in the past and I have no doubt that you will again.

Finn: I shouldn’t even have let her into the house, let alone let her hold hayes, our infant son, I mean that’s the most precious thing to steffy.

Paris: So, you didn’t think it through. But you didn’t mean any harm.

Finn: I just– I didn’t consider how dangerous it could be.

Paris: You thought it would be the end of it. The end of sheila in your life.

Finn: I just– I feel awful to have to put steffy through that, I mean after everything sheila has put her family through.

Paris: Yeah, steffy’s got a right to be mad.

Finn: She was just… so disappointed in me.

Paris: Okay, hey. I get it. You know, you made a bad decision and you didn’t think it through but it was a bad decision made by a good guy. A great guy. So, you know, don’t beat yourself up over this.

Finn: I swore up and down that I had everything under control. I mean, we had a whole discussion about it before steffy left on her trip. And what did I do? I went back on my word. And I disregarded her wishes. And I just assured her that everything was gonna be okay.

Paris: Finn, you didn’t ask for this. Alright, you didn’t ask to be sheila’s biological son. She carried you for nine months. And she’s a mystery woman in your life. And you haven’t met her and you meet her for the first time and it’s huge. So I understand why you feel so connected to her. I do.

Ridge: What about sheila?

Steffy: I made it clear to finn how crucial it was that she stayed out of our lives. And I don’t blame him, I mean, I can’t blame him that she’s his biological mom.

Ridge: No you can’T. That’s not his fault.

Steffy: And I don’t want to make him feel guilty that something that’s out of his hands, out of his control. But he promised me– he promised me that she wasn’t gonna be in our lives.

Ridge: What happened?

Steffy: Well, you know how I was supposed to go to san francisco on that business trip?

Ridge: Hope for the future, yeah.

Steffy: I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t–couldn’t go. I didn’t want to go.

Ridge: I get that. You have a new baby. You want to stay home.

Steffy: No. It wasn’t like that mom guilt. No, I had this like… I had this like, panic inside of me. I knew something was wrong, I mean, how could I? It’s like– sheila is out there and she could harm my children. And finn reassured me that nothing was gonna happen, I didn’t have to be afraid.

Ridge: What happened?

Steffy: I was on the plane and before we took off, there was a delay and my motherly intuition, it just kicked in and I knew I had to go, I had to bail. And I didn’t tell finn, I just– I wanted to surprise him but I was the one who got the surprise.

Ridge: Steffy, tell me.

Steffy: Sheila was here, dad. I walked in and sheila was here, in my living room.

Ridge: That monster was here in your house?

Steffy: It was my worst nightmare. Like the biggest thing I’ve ever feared. She was here.

Ridge: No, no, no, no.

Steffy: No, not only was she here, that psychopath was holding my little baby.

Ridge: She was holding hayes?

Steffy: Yes.

Ridge: Where was finn?

Steffy: He was here.

Ridge: He was here the whole time?

Steffy: He was here. He allowed it. He let it happen. -Finally, a make-up made -just for us

Ridge: So you’re telling me that finn allowed sheila to come here to your house, your home, after everything she’s done?

Steffy: He felt pressured.

Ridge: Pressured to do what? Have her hold my grandchild? Really? He knows who she is.

Steffy: I know–

Ridge: She’s caused nothing but havoc for this family.

Steffy: I thought he listened. I thought he understood–

Ridge: He doesn’t listen. Right? After everything we told him, he just ignored it.

Steffy: Finn’s dad was here, too.

Ridge: Jack was here? There’s something off with that guy.

Steffy: Finn said he and sheila were just– I don’t know, they were hounding him.

Ridge: Not an excuse.

Steffy: I know he’s not a bad guy, but maybe he just felt like he was–

Ridge: He was what?

Steffy: He felt like he was in the middle.

Ridge: He has one job. To take care of you, take care of the kids. That’s it. Nothing else.

Finn: I can still see the horror on steffy’s face.

Paris: I’m sorry, finn. This–this whole thing just sucks.

Finn: You know, I trusted my dad. He never steers me wrong.

Paris: I wonder what was going on in his head? Why he was so adamant about you meeting sheila?

Finn: He kept saying that he wasn’t just looking out for steffy and me, but our whole family.

Paris: How so?

Finn: Maybe he feels bad for sheila?

Paris: Because of the adoption?

Finn: Probably painful for her.

[ Sighing ] I know there was only one way to handle today. And I did the complete opposite. I caved. Why did I let myself be manipulated?

Paris: Finn–

Finn: No, paris. This was a colossal screw up. Why didn’t I just say no? Tell her to leave? Now, I’m away from my wife. And steffy’s lost faith in me.

Quinn: We can take this as slowly as you need to.

Eric: Quinn, I’m– I’m sorry. It’s just not gonna work.

Quinn: Aw, come on, eric. Hey, we gotta try, right? I mean, look, I’m just getting started here. You gotta let me work my magic.

Eric: Your magic.

Quinn: Mm-hm.

Eric: You know how much I’ve always loved that. I can’T. I can’t, quinn. I’M… I’m failing both of us here.

Quinn: No, no, no. Don’t say that. Come on. Eric, there are other ways to reconnect. We just have to be more creative.

Eric: It’s been months. It’s been months and I haven’t– I haven’t felt or I haven’t seen any improvement.

Quinn: Okay, okay, well maybe not yet. But we gotta try, all right? You and I, we can do anything together as long as we’ve got love. I want to try. Please? No pressure. No expectations. Scoot over.

[ Romantic music ]

Quinn: No, no. Don’t stop. Let’s keep going.

Eric: Quinn, I love you. I want you. I want you more than anything but I– I can’T. I love– I love how much you want to help me and I love how supportive you are but I–I can’T.

Quinn: Eric, every marriage–

Eric: This isn’t every marriage. This is ours. This is our marriage and it’s not okay. I can’t– I can’t fulfill you.

Quinn: Yes, you can. You fulfill me and you please me in each and every way.

Eric: No, I don’T. Not the way you deserve.

Quinn: Eric, don’t be ridiculous.

Eric: I can’t do this. I can’t be doing this to you. You’re trapped here. You’re trapped here with me with no fulfillment, no sexual fulfillment. You should go!

Quinn: No, eric, don’t say that to me. I love you. And I want you. You are as handsome and as sexy as you always have been to me. And nothing is gonna change that. Nothing. Come here. Come on.

Eric: Oh, god.

Eric: I’m so sorry. I’m sorry.

[ Rainfall ]

Finn: I just should’ve listened to my gut.

Paris: Finn, hey, you made a mistake, all right? But nobody got hurt. Hayes is safe. Everybody’s fine.

Finn: Luckily. But the truth is, I let steffy down.

Paris: Sheila and your pops put you in an impossible position.

Finn: I admitted to steffy that I wanted to see my birth mother one last time. I can’t help it.

Paris: That makes sense.

Finn: All my life, I… I’ve envisioned her. I have these… bonds, these, these wishes and thinking of what it could be and now it’s just turned into this big, ugly mess.

Paris: Well, I’m no therapist. But having experience in social work, I’ve witnessed a lot of loss. And you, my friend, you’re mourning a loss. The loss of the idea you had of her. The relationship you might have had.

Finn: Yeah. And– I just… I feel for her. You know, she just wanted one good memory with her grandson. But… that doesn’t matter. I owe it to my wife to stay true to her wishes.

Paris: I’m sure steffy kicked you out pretty fast.

Finn: She did, she– I tried apologizing again and again, but she’s heartbroken. And she feels betrayed. She says she couldn’t even look at me. Paris, this is stephanie, my wife. The mother of my child. She couldn’t even look at me. What have I done, paris? What have I done?

Ridge: How does finn do that? Give that woman even an ounce of sympathy?

Steffy: I don’t know what he was thinking. I don’t understand how he allowed himself to be talked into it.

Ridge: He’s a grown man, yes? Where’s his backbone?

Steffy: Dad, I’m as disappointed as you are. But he’s not a malicious guy.

Ridge: I’m not saying he’s malicious.

Steffy: Dad, you weren’t there. You don’t– you don’t get it. I feel the exact same way you do. My heart is racing right now. You have no idea what it was like to walk in and see that woman holding my child. I thought she was gonna run away with him. I thought that was her plan. I was like the ultimate revenge on our family.

Ridge: Shh. Okay, okay. Let’s keep it down. We’re gonna figure this out. Let’s stay strong.

Steffy: I’m trying– I’m trying to stay strong. I really am. But I hate it. I hate that sheila is his mom. That she’s my mother-in-law.

Ridge: She’s not. Li is your mother-in-law.

Steffy: Sheila’s sick and twisted dna is in my husband. It’s in my son. My husband is sleeping out in the guesthouse right now and I want him back here. I want him here with hayes and with kelly and me, but every time I look at him now– I see his face and all I see is sheila. That evil face and I don’t know what to do. I don’t know what to do. I just–I feel like I– I’m losing my mind. I feel like I can’t escape it. I don’t know. I don’t know, dad. I really don’t know what to do.
