Steffy: It was her. It was sheila. She shot me, and she killed finn.
Deacon: Something’s off with you, sheila.
Deacon: The way you’re acting, saying all these crazy things?
Sheila: I’m– I’m not.
Deacon: You said that finn would still be alive, if it weren’t for steffy. What the hell’s that supposed to mean?
Quinn: What’s with paris and all her questions?
Carter: She wanted to know if I was still hung up on you or not.
Quinn: And? Um, you made it clear that there’s nothing going on between us, right?
Carter: Yes, that’s what I told her.
Quinn: Good, because I don’t need her walking around here, stirring up a bunch of trouble.
Carter: She seemed to pick up on a vibe. I don’t think I’m as good at hiding my feelings as I thought.
[ Donna giggling ]
Donna: What are you thinking about? Hm?
Eric: I’m just, uh… just enjoying the quiet.
Donna: Ah. I know, it’s nice, isn’t it?
Eric: Mm hm.
Donna: There’s no drama. No one here to bother us. Hm?
Eric: Oh, yeah.
[ Donna tsk-ing ]
Donna: But I think I know you too well, eric. You’re thinking about quinn, aren’t you?
Carter: Look, I realize nothing can happen between us.
Quinn: No, no. We’ve been down that road before. I almost lost my husband, and my marriage!
Carter: And I almost lost my friendship with eric and ridge, not to mention my position at forrester.
Quinn: Right, exactly. We– there is too much at stake for us to lose– eh. Carter, it’s not like I’m not always going to care about you, or even be attracted to every single thing about you, but, I love my husband. We’re committed to each other. And nothing is ever going to change that.
Eric: You got me. You’re right. I was thinking about quinn.
Donna: Mm hm.
Eric: I’m sorry.
Donna: Oh. No, no, no need to apologize to me. I– I was just thinking about brad pitt, actually. Yeah. Yeah. So I guess that makes us about even so, you know…
Eric: Brad pitt.
Donna: Mm hm.
Eric: Well, I’ll admit that he’s– he’s a pretty handsome fellow, I guess.
Donna: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Oh, I mean, he’s always been my fantasy hall pass.
Donna: And I guess, I’m yours. But we’ll keep it our little secret. Okay?
Eric: Okay. I can’t help feeling a little guilty, where quinn is concerned. But, I appreciate you so much. You always manage to bring a smile to my face.
Deacon: How could steffy be responsible? It– that doesn’t even make sense.
Sheila: She’s always causing trouble, deacon. She doesn’t know when to keep her mouth shut.
Deacon: So you think it’s her fault that– that finn was murdered?
Sheila: I think if she’d handled things differently, finn would still be here.
Deacon: How could you even know that?
Sheila: I just do.
[ Scoffing ]
Deacon: You know, sheila, uh the way– the way you’re talking, it’s almost as if you were there that night.
Steffy: It was sheila. It was sheila!
Taylor: Okay, okay, so– so sheila killed her own son, and then she shot you?
Steffy: Mom! Mom, mom, mom, I’m telling you the truth. I am telling you the truth. I– I know I couldn’t remember things for a while, but it is so– it is so, so clear to me now. The shooter, the person that we’ve been looking for, has been, she’s been here the entire time.
Ridge: It’s her? There’s no doubt in your mind?
Steffy: I– I’ve never been more certain about anything in my life. She did it. It was sheila. She pulled the trigger and– and finn saved my life. He jumped in front of the bullet. And she took him away from us. I am going to make her pay for what she’s done! What’s the #1 retinol brand
Carter: You know you’ve grown a lot, quinn. I admire the work you put into bettering yourself and your relationship.
Quinn: I think eric deserves a lot of that credit, you know, for not giving up on us. On me? I’m not saying things are the way they used to be between us, because they certainly aren’T.
Carter: It may take some time.
Quinn: I just have to own what I did. You know, I broke eric’s trust. Something he would never do to me.
Donna: The last thing I ever want to do is complicate your life.
Eric: Well, my emotions are pretty complicated these days, and that’s one of the things that I appreciate so much about you is how uncomplicated you are. Being here with you, doing this, is effortless.
[ Donna chuckling ]
Donna: Well, that’s what I want to be for you. I want to make your life easy and… happy.
Eric: And that’s what this is. That’s what you do for me. You make me so happy.
Deacon: I get that you’ve suffered a huge loss, but so has steffy. The cops, they think this was some kind of robbery gone bad. If they were getting jumped, how could steffy have stopped it?
Sheila: Because she never… listens. She only considers herself. She never was worried about finn or anyone else. She was only thinking about herself.
Deacon: What, you think she mouthed off to the shooter?
Sheila: Oh, she mouthed off, I’m sure of it.
Deacon: I never really thought about that. You know, whether or not they complied with the shooter’s demands, did what he said. Does it– does it really matter now?
Sheila: I’m sure the person that was holding that gun– that it was never their plan to shoot two people.
Deacon: Sheila, you have to realize that there’s the possibility we might never know what happened. The cops, they don’t seem to have any leads. It’s weird, though, the way things went down, it– it just didn’t have to end that tragically.
Sheila: No, it didn’T. I should have been there, to protect finn, instead of him getting shot.
Deacon: Don’t beat yourself up over this. You’re not responsible for what happened to finn.
Steffy: Sheila. She murdered her own son.
Ridge: Of course she did.
Taylor: My god.
Ridge: Her own flesh and blood.
Taylor: How could she do this?
[ Taylor sighing ]
Steffy: She looked at me, and then she– she shot me, as her son lay dead in the alley.
Ridge: Because she’s sick, she’s a psychopath.
Taylor: I– I let her into our lives.
Ridge: Don’t do that. You tried to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Steffy: I don’t– I don’t get it. I don’t get it like, she wanted– she wanted a relationship with hayes and finn.
Taylor: I welcomed her into this home. I– I… I believed that she was changing.
Steffy: Mom! Mom, please do not do this. She had finn fooled too.
[ Taylor gasping ]
Taylor: I should have seen it. I should have seen it. How could I not see this? This is– this is why. This is why she was blaming herself. Because– she’s the reason that finn is dead.
Steffy: Finn is the reason I’m alive, mom. He jumped in front of me, just as she was pulling the trigger. He took the bullet. I’m alive because of finn.
And it’s easier than ever to get
your projects done right .
Carter: You’re lucky to be married to eric, but he is really lucky to have you.
Quinn: Sometimes I question that last part.
Carter: What? Quinn, I can list at least 50 reasons why any man would be grateful to have you.
Quinn: Just 50?
Carter: A 100.
[ Quinn tch-ing ] A thousand, millions.
Quinn: Okay, all right, that’s a lot better.
Carter: Look, I want your marriage to succeed, because I know how much you want it to succeed.
Quinn: I really do.
Carter: I know. And I want you to be happy.
Carter: That’s all I want for you.
Carter: No, no. No, no. We’re not talking about me. We’re talking about you, and how you could strengthen your marriage. Is there anything else you can do on your end?
Quinn: I don’t know. I feel like I’ve been trying to do everything, you know? I’m trying to be softer and– and more present, more vulnerable. I’m trying to be the woman that eric fell in love with. Only better.
Carter: And you’re still sensing some distance from him?
[ Quinn sighing ]
Quinn: I know, he’s busy with work and his… newfound love of pickleball. I don’t know. I mean, I know he’s still in the process of– of forgiving me, I just– I can’t wait for us to be close again.
Carter: Then, talk to him. What’s the worst that can happen, right? Reach out to eric. Show him how much you care.
Deacon: Losing your kid is– it’s hard enough. But convincing yourself that you were to blame, that’s next level torture.
Sheila: Yeah, well, it’s the deepest, darkest feeling in the world.
Deacon: Stop it. Finn would not want you punishing yourself.
Sheila: I am not so sure about that.
Deacon: Come on, he would want you to keep living, to keep going on. It’s not like you’re going to forget him.
Sheila: Finn is all I think about. Every day. Every night. And the manner in which he passed, it didn’t have to be this way. If finn hadn’t shown up in that alley, if– if steffy hadn’t given him a reason to worry–
Deacon: If, if– sheila! There are so many things in this world that we don’t control. Your issues with steffy did not cause this.
Sheila: I wish that were the case, but– I’m always going to feel responsible. I think that’s why it’s just best if I– if I leave L.A., I– I don’t come back.
Steffy: Sheila wanted me dead. But finn stopped her. He died for me.
Ridge: I’m gonna kill this woman.
Taylor: I’m gonna call the police. We’re going to go–
Steffy: No, no, no, no. You have to wait. Wait.
Taylor: What, why?
Steffy: Invite her over here.
Steffy: I want to see her face when she’s busted. I want to look her right in the eye, and watch her squirm.
Jaycee tried gain flings
for the first time
[ Donna moaning ]
Donna: I don’t want to see my honey bear furrowing his brow like that. Your happiness matters, eric. Us being here, it’s– it’s cozy. It’s familiar. It’s beautiful. Okay? Don’t let this eat away at your conscience.
Eric: Na uh. I don’t regret any of this. Being here with you like this, is the best thing that’s happened in my life for a very long time.
Donna: Yeah, but you’re… feeling bad that you’re being unfaithful.
Eric: I’m feeling grateful. Grateful that… I have you with me to make me laugh. You make me laugh till I cry.
[ Donna chuckling ] Your affection. It means so much to me. You’re not too bad to look at, either.
Donna: Really? Huh.
[ Donna laughing ]
Eric: You see how happy you make me?
Quinn: You know what, carter, you’re right.
Quinn: Yeah, yeah. I am going to take your advice, and I’m going to call eric right now.
Carter: Okay, well, I’ll give you some privacy.
[ Phone ringing ]
Eric: It’s quinn. Quinn?
Eric, where are you?
Ridge: You want sheila to come here, to the house?
Taylor: No, sheila’s too dangerous.
Ridge: I agree with your mom, let’s call the police, have her arrested.
Steffy: She will be. Will make sure of it. I just– I need to see her first.
Taylor: Sweetheart, I understand why you think you need to see her, but–
Steffy: Mom, please, just– just call her.
Taylor: And say what?
Steffy: What does sheila want more than anything? To be part of hayes’ life, our family’s life. She’s desperate to be accepted. So we reach out to her, and we offer everything she’s ever wanted. And that’s when we call her out before she’s hauled off to prison for the rest of her miserable life.
Ridge: I don’t think that’s a good idea.
Steffy: Dad, please, I need this. I lost my husband. Hayes lost his father. I need to feel like I’m like I’m– like I’m avenging finn’s death, somehow.
Taylor: What if she has a weapon?
Steffy: No, she’s not– she’s not gonna bring a weapon in, if she knows hayes is here.
Taylor: Okay, I’ll call her.
Steffy: Thank you.
[ Call ringing ]
[ Phone ringing ]
Sheila: It’s taylor.
Deacon: Pick it up. What are you waiting for?
[ Phone ringing ]
Sheila: Hello, taylor.
Taylor: Sheila. I’m glad I caught you.
Sheila: I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to upset steffy, earlier at the house.
Taylor: She’s just trying to come to terms with– with everything that happened. Everything that happened with finn, the– the whole tragedy. Look, I– I know that you’re– you’re dealing with an– an enormous amount of pain and loss as well. And– and you’re missing hayes very much.
Sheila: Of course.
Taylor: He’s your– he’s your grandson. He’s the only part of finn that you have left. So I was thinking it would be a good idea if you– if you came back over to see him.
Sheila: Wait. What? You– you mean that? I– I would love to.
Taylor: Good. Good. I really want you to be here, sheila.
Sheila: You do?
Taylor: Yes. I do, very much. I just want to see you get what you deserve. Finn would want this. We have to honor his memory.
Sheila: You mean that?
Taylor: More than you’ll ever know.
Sheila: You– you have no idea what this means to me.
Taylor: I think I do.
Sheila: I’ll head right over
[ Sheila laughing ] It’s unbelievable! That was– that was taylor, and– and– it looks like I might have an opportunity to play a role in my grandson’s life.
Deacon: That’s awesome. I’m happy for you. Looks like you might not be leaving L.A. After all.
[ Both laughing ]
Ridge: You’re sure about this?
Steffy: Finn’s the reason you still have a daughter. My kids still have a mother. Because of my husband’s bravery, the sacrifice he made for all of us. I have to do this. I have to face his mother, his murderer. Sheila carter has terrorized her family for far too long. It’s time to put an end to it, once and for all.
