Sheila: I’m not going to prison because of an accident.
Steffy: Accident? What accident? You pointed the gun at me, and you shot me.
Sheila: I’m talking about what happened to finn, steffy. What jury is ever going to convict a grieving mother–
Ridge: What jury? Any jury! You killed your own son. You tried to kill my daughter!
Taylor: You came to the hospital, faking concern for steffy. Making all of us think that you needed consoling. That we should feel sorry for you. For your loss. Sheila, no one’s ever going to feel sorry for you again. You don’t deserve any sympathy for what you’ve done.
Ridge: The only thing you deserve is to be in jail.
Steffy: And that’s exactly what you’re going to get.
Brooke: Wishful thinking, I’d say.
Hope: What’s that?
Brooke: Oh, your father. Claiming that sheila might be able to talk her way into a place in steffy’s family.
Hope: Well, he did say that taylor was the one who called and invited her over, so he might actually know what he’s talking about.
Brooke: I wouldn’t put it past taylor to overlook all the things that sheila’s done through the years. But ridge? There’s no way he will ever accept sheila.
Brooke: I just feel for ridge right now. He’s dealing with a lot. And I wish I could be there for him. I wish we weren’t apart.
Hope: Well, see, that’s what we need to fix. The being apart part. Because we both know the two of you shouldn’t be.
Brooke: Yeah. I just feel so bad. The way I betrayed his trust. And you’re right. We shouldn’t be apart. We need to be together. If only I hadn’t–
[ Sighing ] I need to figure out what possessed me to drink that night. I know–
Hope: Mom, does there really need to be an explanation? Or, I mean, is it about the drinking, or– or is it about what the drinking lead to?
Sheila: You know how cruel you’re being right now.
Taylor: Cruel? Confronting you with the truth is–
Sheila: No, no– you brought me here with lies. You made me believe that I was going to get to see my grandson. All I wanted to do was put that terrible night behind me. And find a way to move on. I’m burdened with so much guilt. Guilt that I am carrying because you, steffy.
Steffy: You’re the one who pulled out a gun.
Sheila: Oh. Poor, precious steffy. Did I come after you that night? Did I get in your face and tell you who you could have in your life? No. And when I tried de-escalating the situation by leaving, what did you do? You came after me! Berating me! You are just as guilty.
Ridge: Shut up! I can’t listen to that voice anymore! What is wrong with you? You should be in an institution somewhere! You like to hurt people, don’t you? You’re sick.
Taylor: Ridge. Ridge, she is not worth it.
Ridge: Sick! I just want her to pay.
Steffy: She will. And I hope it’s excruciating. Every second you spend behind bars, rotting for the rest of your miserable life. Like pulsing, electric shocks,
Brooke: I’m not trying to find excuses, honey. I’m not. What I did with deacon was wrong. And obviously it never would have happened if I was sober. So, if I could just figure out… what triggered me that night, then maybe I could start forgiving myself for what happened after.
Hope: Yes, but mom, I mean. Oh, I don’t know how many times I have to keep reminding you, but you were inebriated and yes, you two kissed. But I mean, dad helped you up the stairs. He put you to bed and looked after you, because he was worried. I– nothing more happened.
Brooke: Honey, it doesn’t make me regret it any less. It doesn’t make me regret defending deacon. I– there has to be an answer. There has to be.
Sheila: I want you to think about something, steffy. And I know that’s gonna be very difficult for you, because all you always do is think about yourself. But I want you to try, okay? What would finn do if he were standing here right now?
Steffy: Finn’s not standing here. He’s never coming back.
Sheila: He would tell you to have compassion, and understanding that I made a terrible mistake.
Steffy: A mistake that you killed your own son instead of me? There is no compassion heading your way. Now, if you want to keep telling yourself finn would have shown you kindness, had he lived? Go for it. Knock yourself out. But deep down, you know that’s a lie.
Sheila: Taylor, would you just please say something to her?
Taylor: Don’t look at me like I’m your friend. I– I am not going to take your side on this, or anything else ever again.
Ridge: Hey sheila, do you know what brings me great joy? It’s the fact that you’re gonna die in prison. And not because of us, but because of you. Choices you made, decisions you made. Do you have an idea how much pain you’ve cause my family? My children, when you took their mother away? And now you had to do it again. Leave steffy with her little boy. I hate you. I hate everything about you.
[ Steffy sobbing ] I’m sorry. I’m sorry.
Steffy: This is why I wanted you to stay away from my family. I was adamant you stayed away from my son. Because I saw through your lies. Finn didn’T. And now he’s gone. I couldn’t protect my husband, but I will protect my son. You’ve already caused him so much damage taking finn away. Your grandson will grow up without a father. God–
Sheila: You have no idea how sorry I am about that. But I’m not going to prison. I promise you that. What have you done? No. No!
Baker: We’ve got more than enough. You can take that wire off now.
Sheila: What is this?
Baker: I’ve been in the back room, listening to everything. You’re going back to prison, sheila.
Baker: For a very long time.
Baker: You’re under arrest. For the attempted murder of steffy forrester. And for the murder of your own son, dr. John finnegan.
[ Sheila grunting ] Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches
Hope: Please, stop beating yourself up, mom. Seriously, you have– you’ve apologized enough for what happened. And obsessing over it isn’t going to do you any good.
Brooke: I know, hope. But don’t you understand? I mean, if there is an answer, if there’s some kind of explanation.
Hope: Then maybe you would feel better that it won’t happen again. No, I do get it. I understand.
Brooke: And, I would feel better if ridge could trust me again. After everything with deacon.
Hope: Ridge knows that you would have never turned to my dad, if it wasn’t for the alcohol. Or at least, he should know that.
[ Sighing ]
Brooke: I hope so. I don’t want any other man, but ridge.
Ridge: Get her outta here.
Baker: You have the right to remain silent.
Sheila: No, wait.
Baker: Anything you say–
Sheila: Wait, I’ve got something to say.
Baker: Can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Sheila: I just wanna say my piece.
Steffy: You’re never going to get your piece. But say what you need to say before they haul you away.
Baker: Go ahead.
Sheila: You’re all so certain. That I intended harm. For you, when I cam back, but that’s– I just wanted to meet my son. I wanted to maybe, just maybe, be part of his life, that’s all that this was. All it ever was. But steffy, you– you just refused to let that happen. You kept saying that I had no place here. You wouldn’t even let finn speak for himself. No, you just wouldn’t– wouldn’t stop. You were so relentless.
Taylor: And look what happened.
Sheila: None of you will ever understand, what it’s like to have somebody love you. And you love them back unconditionally. But you’ve never had to… even think about that. Something that you take for granted. But I don’T. I was hoping that just maybe, this– this time was going to be my chance. My chance was going to be finn. And now he’s gone. And I never– I would never hurt him. I love him.
Steffy: Sheila, whatever toxic version of love you provide, isn’t something finn would have ever wanted. You’re just an ugly reminder of where he came from. Something he tried his damnedest to forget. And exactly what I’m faced with now. Forgetting you. The damage that you caused. You destroyed my family. But you didn’t destroy me. I’m going to come back stronger than ever, and I’m going to raise my son to be exactly like finn. Strong and compassionate. I’m going to raise him to be the opposite of you. He’s not even going to know the name sheila carter. He’s not even going to know you exist. You’re going to be completely erased. Because people like you, you’re not loved. You’re forgotten. Goodbye, sheila. Take her away.
Sheila: You think– you think that this is over. You think that– that I’m not coming back? I’m coming back for hayes. Hayes is going to love me regardless. He’s going to love me. You’re making a mistake. You’re all making a mistake. You haven’t seen the last of me. I will be back! I was on an antidepressant,
Taylor: Don’t worry about what sheila said. There’s no way she’s coming back.
Steffy: I know, it’s just– I don’t like the way she talked about hayes. Wanting his love.
Ridge: I wouldn’t worry about any of that. It’s not going to happen. She’s not going to get out of jail, after what she’s done. As awful as it is, it’s–
[ Sighing softly ] It’s nice to have my memory back. I have the answers.
Taylor: Yeah. We have a lot of answers now. We know what happened to brooke.
Ridge: It’s been haunting her. She wanted to know why she started drinking again.
Taylor: You should go tell her. Tell her what happened.
Ridge: I’m not leaving you guys. Not after today.
Taylor: She needs to know.
Steffy: She does.
Taylor: Get out of here.
Brooke: I’m not giving up on him, hope. I’m not.
Hope: Uh, nor should you, not after everything the two of you have been through.
Brooke: I know, I’ve lost faith before. And I’ve questioned whether ridge and I should be together. Thinking maybe he’s better off with taylor. But I know that’s not true. Ridge and I will find a way through this. We have to.
Steffy: I knew sheila was deranged, but– my god. She shot me. She killed her own son because I was confronting her about brooke. It’s just so crazy to me. Like she knew she was in the wrong.
Taylor: Oh honey, I don’t think she did. I think in her– in her own twisted way, she thought that brooke deserved it.
Steffy: It worries me. If this could change things for you and dad.
[ Loud knock ]
Brooke: Hi. I didn’t realize you were stopping by. Is everything okay? What’s wrong?
Ridge: I– wrong–
[ Stammering ] You have no idea.
Brooke: Oh! You’re scaring me. Tell me what it is.
Ridge: I don’t know where to start.
Brooke: Is it steffy? Is she okay?
Ridge: No, steffy’s fine. Everything’s fine. She’s um– do you know how– how she had holes in her memory?
Brooke: She was blocking out the trauma of the shooting?
Ridge: Yeah. Well, she remembers now.
Brooke: Well, that’s good. I mean, maybe not for her. Maybe it was difficult, but she can now help the police. And maybe they can find out who finn’s shooter is.
Ridge: Oh, they found out.
Ridge: They found out who she was.
Ridge: She. Yes.
[ Heavy sigh ]
Brooke: Sheila? Sheila shot steffy? And she killed her own son? And then she took their stuff and made it look like a robbery.
Brooke: Oh, my god.
Ridge: She’s disgusting.
Brooke: I can’t believe this. Well, the police have her, right?
Ridge: Now that she’s in custody, she’s confessed everything. She’s going to spend the rest of her days behind bars.
Brooke: Well, do you think that’s even possible? I mean, she’s gone for good?
Ridge: She’s not going to hurt steffy, or taylor, or you, ever again.
Brooke: But I’m the lucky one. She hasn’t done anything to me for years. Except idle threats–
Ridge: That’s not true. Hasn’t been years. Steffy remembered something else. She remembered why she went to the restaurant. She went there to confront sheila.
Brooke: Confront her about?
Ridge: About new year’s eve. You said there was a trigger. And there was. Sheila.
Brooke: I don’t understand.
Ridge: She switched the labels on the champagne bottles. You thought you were drinking non-alcoholic champagne. And she made sure it was the real thing.
Brooke: I knew it. I knew it. I knew there was a reason. I wasn’t drinking on my own!
Ridge: No. It was sheila. She did that to you. I’m so sorry.
