Brooke: Oh! This is– this is just so much.
Ridge: I know, it’s a lot. It’s a lot to take in. But steffy remembers that night very clearly now.
Brooke: I mean– it really was sheila? She… shot steffy? And she killed her own son?
Ridge: She confessed to all of it.
Brooke: Oh, my god, this is unbelievable.
Ridge: And she’s going to spend the rest of her days in prison. She’s not going to terrorize you anymore.,
Taylor: I missed all the signs.
Steffy: Mom, as bad as sheila is, no one could have pictured her doing something like this.
Taylor: If people weren’t capable of change, I wouldn’t have a career. I see it all the time. I wanted so badly for hayes’ grandmother to have a chance at redemption. But sheila’s too dangerous for society, let alone this family.
Steffy: We have to tell li. We have to track her down. And we have to tell her that finn’s birth mother is the one who killed him.
Liam: Good timing! You guys showing up right now. Kids just went to sleep. Hope’s out, having a girls night.
Bill: Yeah, good for her! Having a little cabin fever, was she?
Liam: Okay. I got it. I got it. You don’t like our place. It’s fine.
Bill: No, no, no. It’s not that. You know, I– I find it, uh, quaint.M it’s, uh, it– it’s rustic.
Liam: You know what, it is rustic. Thank you. It is rustic. And that’s part of the charm.
Bill: Do I not pay you enough, liam?
Liam: Oh, my god.
Wyatt: Dad, come on. It’s their home. It’s cozy.
Liam: It’s– cozy is a bit condescending, but you know what? We like it, all right? The kids love it. H– hope really likes being near brooke, actually, especially lately. She’s, umm… she’s really concerned about her mom, ever since her separation from ridge.
Wyatt: So ridge is still staying out in malibu?
Liam: Yeah. I– I mean… on the one hand, it is nice for him to be staying out there with steffy while she recovers.
Bill: Yeah, it’s tough for brooke though, isn’t it? I mean her husband leaves her in the lurch, when she’s at her most vulnerable. I mean– her dressmaker should have been up there, consoling her.
Liam: Not exactly as cut and dry as you’re making it out to be…
Bill: I know. I know. Uh, “poor little ridge.” He got his fragile ego bruised. Brooke should have kicked him to the curb years ago.
Steffy: It all feels very surreal. Like if I look at the door long enough, finn will walk through it. Or if I like close my eyes hard enough, it’ll just be a bad dream and I’ll wake up, and my husband will be here.
Taylor: Oh, steffy. I wish that more than anything for you.
[ Sighing ]
Steffy: Finn’s death would be easier to accept if it was like– like a stranger or something. You know, some guy just– desperate for money.
[ Sighing heavily ] It’s like even more senseless now, knowing that sheila’s the one responsible.
Brooke: I can only imagine what steffy is going through.
Ridge: Well we’re all still in shock, but I guess, shouldn’t be too surprised, right?
Brooke: Right. Yeah, I guess not, given sheila’s history. But for her to target your daughter. And to take hayes’ father away.
Ridge: And she’ll be brought to justice, not just for killing finn, but for attacking us.
Brooke: I’m still trying to process what you said. She switched the labels on the champagne bottle.
Ridge: She conned you into drinking. This whole time it was sheila. It was always sheila. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,
Wyatt: So, for some reason, brooke decided to have a few drinks and kiss deacon.
Bill: And that’s what sent ridge packing.
Wyatt: I mean, I guess I could kind of see it.
Bill: For a kiss? Really, wyatt? You would leave your wife over one drunken kiss?
Liam: Dad, it’s not just the kiss. It’s the entire history of brooke and deacon.
Bill: Well, they have a kid together. Big deal. Alright? Brooke had a setback. It happens. She handled it appropriately. She called her sponsor. She got help. She’s been going to meetings. Was that good enough for ridge? No.
Liam: I know, but–
Bill: He dumped her anyway.
Liam: Ridge was upset ’cause brooke looked like she was making excuses for deacon. And that would piss you off too, if you were with brooke. Look, I’m not– I’m not defending ridge. I– I agree with you. I think everything you’re saying is true. And so would hope, even.
Bill: What hope’s parents did was g-rated. And ridge is a big boy. Did he show any sympathy for his alcoholic wife? No. He did what he always does. Went crying to taylor.
Taylor: How are you doing? This is, by far, the hardest on you.
Steffy: I don’t think it’ll ever make sense to me.
Taylor: I know. It’s tragic, I– I can’t believe it happened.
Steffy: I can’t even remember what I said to him when I saw him last. Before he was– I can’t even remember if I told him I loved him.
Taylor: Hey, hey, hey. Steffy, finn knew how much you loved him. He told us every day how happy he was. And that’s all because of you.
Steffy: But if I could have more time with him. If I could have one more day with my husband. Oh, just watching him take his last breath, it was horrible.
Taylor: Oh honey. You know, I bet it was a comfort to finn, knowing that you were there with him in the final moments. Right by his side.
Steffy: No. It’s so unfair, mom. I mean, he’s the kindest– he was the most loving human being. It just hurts.
Taylor: I know it does.
Steffy: Oh, god. How are you doing? I mean, this– ah, this has to be hard for you too, in a different way, with– with dad.
Steffy: Knowing that sheila got brooke to drink. I mean, you have to be worried what this means for you and dad.
Brooke: I can’t think of myself right now. Not after what steffy’s been put through.
Ridge: Well, she’s trying to be strong, but– she has a lot of healing still ahead of her. But thank you. For thinking about my daughter.
Brooke: Of course, I’m thinking about her, ridge. She lost her husband. And not because of some random act of violence. It was at the hands of sheila.
Ridge: It’s unfathomable, all of it. Not– not just that she’s the shooter, but… but that she’s responsible for the shame you’ve been drowning in.
Brooke: I kept asking myself, why? Why would I do that? Why would I break my sobriety like that? Or risk the life that we built together?
Ridge: You said from the very beginning there’s outside forces at play.
Ridge: But I– didn’t pay attention.
Brooke: I felt it. In the pit of my stomach. I couldn’t shake it. No matter what.
Ridge: Because you were right. It wasn’t you. It was sheila.
[ Exhaling ] You love rich, delicious ice cream.
Liam: And that’s pretty much the gist of it. Brooke’s been sober ever since that one little slip up. And she’s just trying to remain optimistic that ridge will come around.
Wyatt: I mean, that’s rough. Look, I wish her all the best.
Bill: Why would brooke possibly take back mister holier-than-thou after the way that he has repeatedly treated her?
Wyatt: Because it sounds like they both made mistakes, dad.
Bill: Brooke was under the influence, wyatt. It’s not the same thing. She– she never would’ve kissed that convict, sharpe, if she were sober.
Liam: I mean, that’s true. Alcohol definitely played a role that night.
Bill: Yeah, well, you see that, and I see that. But forrester’s blinded by his own self-righteousness.
Liam: Yeah, I– I mean, all we can do is hope that it works out somehow.
Bill: It’s not going to work out somehow. It’s not going to work out at all. Not as long as he’s playing ping pong with brooke and taylor. Well, like– like he’s special. Like, he’s what? God’s gift to women.
Wyatt: Oh, no, that’s you, dad. Everybody knows that.
Bill: The truth will set you free, right?
Liam: Alright. Okay, look, look, it’s– it’s bad that brooke is hurting. It’s bad that it’s taking a toll on hope. We can all agree on that. We just want them to be happy, right?
>>Liam: Right? Right?
Bill: It’s gonna be hard for brooke to accept, but she’s not going to find happiness. Brooke is not going to find commitment. She’s not going to find anything with forrester. Especially now that taylor is back in town.
Taylor: Please don’t worry about me right now.
Steffy: Mom, you’re going through it, too.
Taylor: Oh! Not like you are, steffy. Especially after what you just remembered.
Steffy: Yeah. What I’m dealing with right now, it’s going to take a long time to process. It’s not– it’s not something I will ever get over. Hayes will have no memory of his father.
Taylor: But finn will live on in the stories you tell. It’s not the same.
Steffy: Not even close. But it’s been really healing, having you and dad here. It’s wonderful for the kids and– I know it’s been nice for you too.
Taylor: Well, no matter what, your father will always be fully engaged in your lives.
Steffy: Of course he will. I wasn’t questioning that. My dad’s over at brooke’s right now explaining what sheila did to her. You’re not wrong or selfish to be concerned about your future with dad. You don’t have to worry. Because the truth about sheila, it won’t change his feelings for you.
Ridge: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to overwhelm you, I thought you’d want to know.
Brooke: No, no, I’m just– I’m trying to piece it all together.
Ridge: Well. Sheila must overheard you when you were talking about this… non-alcoholic champagne. That champagne that eric had at christmas. I preordered some from il giardino.
Ridge: Right. And she switched the labels.
Brooke: Right. So I was drinking real champagne.
Ridge: And that was your trigger.
Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. You know what? That would explain everything. The taste. What it did to me physically. How I craved it, more and more.
Ridge: The missing piece.
Brooke: As as– much as i despise her, I really didn’t think she had a hand in this.
Ridge: I didn’t either.
Brooke: I– I’m just trying to figure it all out. I– I barely had any contact with her. Except she did come over here after it happened. And she had this wicked, wicked smile on her face. After I told her that I drank and deacon stayed here.
Ridge: Deacon. Well, she tried to justify what she did by saying that you tried to keep her away from finn and the baby.
Brooke: Oh, god. She is sick. And she is twisted. If– if we could have just kept her away somehow.
Ridge: Finn would still be alive. And we wouldn’t be where we are now.
Brooke: Yeah, you’re right. Things would be very different. Finn we would be at the hospital, saving lives. And steffy’s beautiful family would be in tact. And you and I, we would be together. We would be living here in our home. A lot of folks ask me why their dishwasher
Steffy: I’ve seen firsthand what you two mean to each other.
Taylor: Yes. Well, your father and I have a great relationship. We are committed to our family, helping you thrive.
Steffy: It’s more than that.
Taylor: Well, sure. I mean, this has been great for ridge and me. We love spending time together. With you, and thomas, and our grandkids.
Steffy: Your relationship is not just about us. There’s a mutual attraction there, like– a chemistry that has nothing to do with me and thomas.
Taylor: Well, we do enjoy each other’s company. You know, I– I missed laughing with him. I didn’t realize how much.
Steffy: Same goes for dad. It’s really nice watching the two of you together. It’s been great since you’ve come back to L.A. You have the little looks that you give each other across the room, having coffee on the deck. You know that he wakes up, like, 20 minutes earlier just to… make you coffee.
Taylor: I know, I know. It’s so sweet.
Steffy: You’re meant to be together. And I’m not just saying that because I’m your daughter.
Taylor: The daughter who would love nothing more than to plan another wedding for her parents.
Steffy: Everyone can see how connected you guys are.
Taylor: Well, sure sweetheart, but–
Steffy: I mean it.It’s true.
[ Sighing heavily ]
Taylor: You know, I– I don’t doubt ridge’s feelings for me. I don’t, but– facts are, that he– he is still married to brooke. There’s no divorce papers. And right now, he’s over there telling her that sheila tricked her into drinking. His heart must go out to her. I– I know mine is. She was also a victim of sheila’S. What this means for her and your father, or your father and me… only ridge can answer that.
Brooke: I appreciate you coming here, to give me the news about sheila.
Ridge: Well you had to know.
Brooke: You have so much on your plate, ridge. This tragedy affects the whole family. Especially steffy, and that sweet little boy.
Ridge: Who does that? What kind of a person does that? And not just to finn, poor finn and steffy, but– to you. To us.
Brooke: Sheila made it crystal clear that she wanted you to be with taylor.
Ridge: And I should have suspected that there was somebody behind all this.
Brooke: Ridge, don’t blame yourself. I mean, there’s no way you could have predicted she would have done something like that. But now we know. We have answers.
Ridge: What, what, but what? I know you better than that. I’ve known you all my life. How do you– I should have known better. I should have listened to you, but I didn’T. I should have known that somebody was victimizing you. I didn’t know it was sheila, but I knew it was somebody. And I wasn’t there for you. Your husband wasn’t there for you.
Brooke: You just didn’t know. I mean, I– I know we can’t forget everything that sheila’s done. But we can at least stop her lies and her manipulations. We can restore our life together. I always had faith that we could. That we’d be able to get past this. So is that why you’re here? You’re coming home to me?
