Steffy: What can I do? How can I help?
Finn: Can you turn back the clock to the moment right before my adoptive dad, the man who raised me, I trusted and looked up to told me it wasn’t true? That he’s really my biological father and he’s lied to me and my mother our whole lives?
Steffy: Are you saying you wish you didn’t know?
Finn: No, I’m saying i just– I don’t know, I don’t know how to feel about any of this. To suddenly feel what I’m feeling about a man that I respected and I thought, I knew– I mean, we knew. And he betrayed both of us. Mom, I am just– I’m so sorry that he hurt you this way.
Li: Sweetheart, I don’t want you to worry about me.
Finn: Of course I’m worried about you. I mean, he’s turned your world upside down just like mine.
Li: I realize that’s what it feels like right now. You have so much good in your life, finn. You have a loving wife, beautiful family, a marriage based on honesty and trust. The fact that your father–
Finn: No, no, no, I can’t think of him like that. Not after what he’s done.
Sheila: What’s wrong?
Jack: I did what you suggested. Finally told li and finn the truth.
Sheila: It didn’t go well. Tell me what happened, jack.
Jack: Exactly what you’d expect to happen when you tell your wife and your son, you’re a cheat and a liar.
Carter: Hey, I thought you’d gone home for the night.
Paris: Uh, yeah, I– I did, but I am back now.
Carter: Can’t stay away, huh?
Paris: I do love my job but that isn’t it, either.
Carter: So do I keep guessing or are you going to tell me why you’re here at forrester instead of your apartment?
Paris: It really is, you know, my apartment.
Carter: Oh, what do you mean?
Paris: The place is all mine now.
Carter: Oh, that’s cool. Thomas finally found a house.
Paris: No, something else happened, something between thomas and me.
Carter: What’s going on? Unless, it’s something personal?
Paris: Well, actually, it is personal. But I can count on you to keep this just between us.
Carter: Of course.
Paris: First, I have to say it took me completely by surprise.
Carter: What did?
Paris: Thomas, opening up the way he did to me tonight.
Carter: About what?
Paris: His feelings… for me. I know. I know. I was– I was thrown.
Carter: What did you say?
Paris: Well, I have to admit, I was flattered. Thomas is an awesome guy but I told him, “I just wanted to be friends.”
Carter: Wow. If zende had any idea.
Paris: Carter, you said that you wouldn’t say anything to anyone. Anyone includes zende, especially zende.
Sheila: Why don’t you tell me exactly what went on, jack. Did you tell li and finn together?
Jack: Li first. Said I needed to tell her something I should’ve told her a long time ago. Just nearly killed me seeing her heart shatter right in front of me, hearing the things that I’d done. The lies and deception from a man that she believed was incapable of either. I just can’t imagine she’s going to stay with me after this.
Sheila: I’m really sorry to hear that. What about finn? When you told him, how did how did he react?
Finn: The pain that that man caused may eventually go away but the scars never will. I mean, it’s going to be with us for the rest of our lives.
Finn: No, look, I’m not saying that to hurt my mother, I’m just saying I know that you feel deeply deceived too and it’s okay to admit that and everything else that you’re feeling about jack, mom.
Li: I appreciate that. I do. Finn, I love you for being the kind and compassionate young man you are. But what all this means for me, my marriage, as terrible as that is, right now all I can think about is you, feeling for you, knowing you lost your father and the family you believed we were. Most bladder leak pads were similar.
Carter: So you had no idea that thomas felt this way?
Paris: It completely took me by surprise.
Carter: Apparently, the lady doesn’t know her superpower.
Paris: Oh, please.
Carter: I’m serious, paris. You have this positivity about you and not to mention this infectious enthusiasm for whatever you’re involved in. People feel better by being around you. Obviously, thomas does. But zende on the other hand, if he even suspected this–
Paris: Carter, zende can not find out. It would hurt him. And I don’t want to damage his relationship with thomas. They’re– they’re cousins. They work together, it would make things really tense and awkward.
Carter: I agree.
Paris: And I think thomas realized it could get like that between us, too, if we continued living together.
[Sighs] So that’s why he moved out.
Carter: Well, one thing is for sure, paris buckingham, you are very much a woman in demand.
Sheila: Was steffy there when you told them this?
Jack: Yeah, she’s hurtin’ for her husband, her mother-in-law, too. She hates what’s happened.
Sheila: Oh, what she hates, she can’t blame all this on me. I– I really don’t care what she thinks right now. This is about finn and I’m concerned about our son.
Jack: You don’t think I am? I’m worried my relationship with finn will never be the same. And I’m deeply scared that I lost both my wife and my son tonight, my entire family.
Sheila: Now, this risk that you took, jack, you decided to tell li and finn, to tell them everything.
Jack: At your encouragement, sheila. “Maybe it’s time finn knows the truth,” those are your words, sheila. Now look what’s happened. My son can’t stand the sight of me, my wife wants nothing to do with me. What the hell? Why did I ever listen to you?
Sheila: Now, would you just stop your wallowing because this is not about you right now. It’s about finn and how we’re going to be able to help him through all of this, how I am going to help him.
Finn: Mom, I want you to stay with us, okay?
Steffy: So do I. I’ll make up the guest room for you.
Li: Thank you, both of you. But I think I should go back to the hotel. I need some time alone to process everything that’s happened.
Finn: You sure?
Li: I’m fine, sweetheart.
Finn: What if he shows up there?
Li: He won’T.
Finn: How can you be certain?
Li: Believe me. He won’T. Give my two precious grandbabies a kiss for me. And please, my wonderful son, always know how much I love you, and how very special you are to me.
Finn: I love you, too, mom. And just know you will never lose me. That will never happen. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort-of white smile.
Carter: Yeah, thanks again, bart. Yeah, yeah. Update ridge and stef on the new contract,. No, I don’t foresee there being any problems. No, I’ll talk to you soon. What is so interesting on your cell?
Paris: I am just uh, reviewing my bank statements since thomas is moving out and I’ll be paying my own rent.
Carter: Keeping a closer eye on your finances.
Paris: Yeah, well not that I’m financially hurting or anything. I make a pretty good salary here at forrester. It’s just paying off student loans and i just wanna be careful.
Carter: I know, believe me. I had to pay off my student loans too, but I also learned how to make my money work for me.
Paris: In what way?
Carter: Well, you know, stocks, bonds, cryptocurrency, to name a few. You start off small, right? You set aside a portion of each paycheck for investment. Nothing too risky but enough to hopefully get a decent return. Plus, if you want to buy a house one day, you’ll have a head start on a sizable down payment.
Paris: Well, it sounds like I should be doing that. I can help you if you want. I can get you headed in the right direction.
Paris: Are you offering to be my financial wizard?
Carter: I don’t know about a wizard but I’m happy to help if I can.
Paris: Thanks, carter. I’d like that. A lot.
Sheila: Jack, you have kept a huge secret from li and finn practically forever. What did you think would happen? That they would just turn the other cheek and forgive you instantly?
Jack: Of course not, but–
Sheila: No, “buts.” You need to stop feeling sorry for yourself because it’s our son that is reeling from this.
Jack: I know that, sheila, but what am I supposed to do? Finn wants nothing to do with me, now. It’s like I’m being cast aside.
Sheila: Well, now you know how I feel. How lonely it is being alienated from our son.
Steffy: I just spoke with your mom. She’s back at the hotel.
Finn: Oh, thanks for checking in on her.
Steffy: She’s your mother. I know how much she means to you. Especially now that this has happened.
Finn: I just never could have imagined, jack, doing something like this. I thought she was everything to him. I thought he would rather die than betray her like this. You know what, she’s got me and I’m going to do everything I can to help my mom through this. I don’t want her to face it alone.
Steffy: I love how devoted you are to your mother. You’re such a remarkable son. Even more remarkable husband and dad to kelly and hayes. But, I have to ask. Now that the shock has worn off even just a little. How do you really feel about jack being your biological father? Instead of some nameless, faceless man you’ve always wondered about?

Paris: You know, I appreciate all of your support. Carter, you have been nothing but wonderful to me ever since I landed in L.A.
Carter: Yeah, that’s me. Mr. Nice guy.
Paris: You know, you are. You’re one of the nicest nice guys around. Why you’re still on the market is beyond me. Speaking of which, you have a date tonight?
Carter: No. That’s why I’m at work. I’m hopelessly single.
Paris: Well, not for long, I’m sure. In fact, I predict you will catch the eye of a smart and very lucky woman. Night, carter.
Sheila: You’ve got to give finn some time, jack. What he learned tonight is heart wrenching. Still, we can be a part of his life, again.
Sheila: Yes, his biological parents. We are in the same boat now. You don’t want to lose finn and I certainly don’T. Maybe, maybe if we unite forces here, we– we can get through to our son and finally shut steffy down.
Jack: Oh. You’re hatching another scheme again.
Sheila: Well, you know me, I don’t give up easily and you shouldn’t either. This is far from over. No, finn is much too important to both of us for this to be over.
Steffy: You’re putting all this energy into protecting your mother. You want to make sure li is okay and I admire that about you. But I also know you’re hurting. You and jack were close. You had a very special bond.
Finn: I could always count on him for everything. I never once questioned his faithfulness or his honesty and he was a stand up guy. He was a devoted husband and father. But he wasn’T. He was keeping this lifelong, explosive secret, a secret about himself, what he’d done, who he was to me. And honestly, I don’t– I don’t know what to do about all this. Would things have been different if he was my birth father growing up? Maybe. But I’ll never get the chance to find out. So much of what I know, so much of what I’ve counted on is just suddenly shifted beneath my feet.
Steffy: I know it seems that way. I know you feel lost right now. But I’m here. Kelly and hayes are here. And you can count on us. Listen to me: I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you’re always going to be a loving, devoted father to our children. Kelly and hayes are always going to look up to you and admire you. Just as I know you’re always going to be a faithful, loving husband to me because that’s the man you are, john finnegan. That’s the man you are to your core. So, whatever you decide to do with jack, that’s up to you. But I want you to know that you have a family that loves and counts on you. And I know you feel alone right now but you’re not alone because you have me. And we’re going to get through this. You can lean on me. And count on me. Count on my love. Always.
