Sheila: Oh, my god. Oh, my god. You got out of bed. I didn’t know you had the strength. How?
Finn: I have to get to steffy. I have to let my family know that I’m alive.
Sheila: This is all wonderful and good, but you’re doing too much too soon. You’ve got to take your time.
Ridge: Sheila carter was exactly where she belonged– in a prison cell behind bars. She couldn’t hurt my family, couldn’t hurt anybody. That’s justice. But now she’s running around free… because of you.
Deacon: Hey, sweetheart.
Deacon: Are you okay?
Hope: Yeah. It’s just, um… it doesn’t get any easier, does it? I don’t think I can come into this restaurant without thinking about sheila shooting steffy and finn.
Deacon: It’s good to see you.
Hope: It’s good to see you. I’m sorry, dad. I didn’t mean to be such a downer to start.
Deaco oh, hey, hey. Listen. I get it. I mean, I have to work here, but there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t come through that door and feel like I’m being smacked in the face with the weight of that shooting. You know, in the alley finding finn and steffy. Finn dead. Steffy…so damn close.
Hope: Must have been horrific for you.
Deacon: Yeah. It still haunts me. Me and everybody who loved finn. I just– so much pain and loss. You know, a good man gone. For what? For no reason. And his family’s left behind to struggle without him. And it’s all because of sheila. And there’s not a damn thing that’ll change that.
Mike: I don’t know why I’m being accused here. I was as surprised by sheila’s escape as anyone.
Ridge: And you expect us to believe that?
Baker: According to mr. And mrs. Forrester here, you and sheila were partners in crime back in the day.
Baker: Something you neglected to mention when she was remanded into this facility.
Mike: I knew her. Everybody did. It’s not like we were joined at the hip.
Brooke: [Scoffs] That’s not how I remember it.
Ridge: Where is she? What are you doing? We don’t have to listen to your lies right now.
Brooke: Where is she, mike?
Ridge: Where is she?
Sheila: You’ve got to listen to me. Your health is my number-one priority right now. You’re jeopardizing your recovery by rushing things.
Finn: I have to get to steffy.
Sheila: Oh. I know. I know, and you will as soon as you’re physically able.
Finn: Don’t stop me.
Sheila: I’ve got to get you back in bed. Finn! Finn. (Rose h) smoking caused my lung cancer.
Hope: Being the one to find finn and steffy shot had to be traumatizing. So… please tell me you’re thinking of talking to someone.
Deacon: I am. I’m talking to you.
Hope: Dad. I mean professional help. And taylor does not count. She’s too close to the situation. Although I’m sure she could refer you to someone.
Deacon: That’s very sweet of you. That means everything to me, but I do not need a shrink. Besides, sheila’s the one who needs the professional help.
Hope: And to be behind bars. But, unfortunately, she’s out running around somewhere.
Deacon: What the hell. I mean, how do you just sail out of jail like that? Because I gotta tell you, it ain’t that easy. Trust me.
Hope: Well, apparently, she might have had help.
Deacon: Huh. Well, that doesn’t really surprise me. Sheila can be very persuasive.
Hope: Hmm. But not to you, right? You immediately saw her for what and who she is?
Deacon: Immediately? I see now. You know, it’s a little hard not to. I think I see where this is going. You wanna make sure that I haven’t been in touch with sheila and that I’m not covering for her.
Deacon: I haven’t and I’m not. Hope, I wouldn’t lie to you. Please tell me you believe me.
Baker: Have a seat, officer guthrie.
Mike: No, I’m good.
Baker: Sit down. Officer guthrie, I’m sure you can understand why emotions are running high. Steffy forrester was shot, her husband killed by sheila carter, a prisoner no longer in our custody. I’m sure you can understand why mr. And mrs. Forrester are upset.
Mike: Sure. Anyone would be.
Baker: Exactly. They’ve got a legitimate cause for concern. Sheila’s targeted the family many times over the years.
Brooke: Something you’re well aware of.
Baker: It’s not a stretch to think that she would come after them again.
Ridge: Especially now. She’s got nothing to lose.
Baker: You know how these things work. Escaped prisoners only stay free for so long. It’s only a matter of time before sheila is found, captured, and returned to custody. And anyone who abetted her will be incarcerated also.
Mike: As it should be.
Baker: Of course if that person should cooperate and help us bring sheila in, that cooperation would be taken into consideration.
Mike: I get that.
Baker: Wonderful. So I ask you, officer guthrie, did you help sheila carter escape from this prison?
Sheila: Look at what you’ve done. I told you to be still.
Finn: I–I can’T… stay here.
Sheila: You have to, baby, just a little while longer. Let me help you. Let me help you.
Finn: Don’t touch me.
Sheila: I couldn’t leave you on the floor.
Finn: I need to be with steffy. Do you wanna help me? Just let me call her and just–
Sheila: Soon, finn. Look, I can’t let you reinjure yourself.
Sheila: I can’t let you set back all this amazing progress that you have made, honey. Okay, I’m not gonna let you go backwards, not after how hard I’ve worked to save you.
Finn: Look, just stay away from me.
Sheila: Why do you say that when I’m trying to help you? Please, would you just let me?
Finn: All I want is to be with steffy.
Sheila: And you will be. You will be when you’re ready. Why won’t you trust me?
Finn: Are you serious?
Sheila: I love you, finn. You’re my son. And I want is to see you happy and with your family, but you can’t force your strength back. You–you have to let that strength come back naturally. And when it does, I swear to you I will get you back to steffy.
Finn: Now, sheila. Now.
If you have this…
Finn: If you don’t know, I’m happy to tell you. This–this bond that we have, my beautiful daughter, this is the most meaningful, most important relationship in my life. I would never do anything to jeopardize that. Nothing that would… take a chance on you losing your faith in me, your trust in me. So when I tell you that I haven’t spoken to sheila, I haven’t seen sheila, I’m telling you the truth, and I hope you believe you.
Hope: I do. Absolutely.
Deacon: I mean, I get it. It makes sense to be concerned about where sheila might be, you know, what direction she might come from when we least expect it. She’s dangerous. And ridge and taylor and brooke, they’d be nuts not to be worried about the fact that she just broke out of prison. But… I do have to give credit where credit is due. She is an unbelievable con artist.
Hope: Well, so much so that they think that the guard on duty that night was the one who helped sheila break out. And you know what his name was? Mike guthrie.
Baker: In my department, we’re brothers. We support each other, even if we miscalculate, make a mistake. None of us is perfect. We all fall. But we help each other back up. If you had something to do with sheila’s escape, I’m not gonna lie. There will be a price to pay. But if you cooperate, admit what you did and help us to bring her in, I will personally see that your case benefits.
Mike: That’s stand-up of you, chief, but I didn’t do anything wrong.
Ridge: No? That’s it? That– that’s the story you’re telling? You know who I am, right? You know who she is. And we know who you are. You had past dealings with sheila. We all know about that.
Mike: I’m not denying our paths crossed from time to time. But nobody asked.
Brooke: Oh, come on, mike. You and sheila were close.
Mike: You’re exaggerating. Like I said, I knew her. Look, I was different back then. I liked to walk on the wild side. I don’t do that anymore. I’m one of the good guys now. I protect and serve.
Mike: Check my record. It’s clean.
Ridge: Guthrie! No one wants to play this game with you. No one! That bitch shot my daughter. She killed her own son. And you know more than you’re saying. You know you do. What is it? Where is sheila? Where is she?
Sheila: All right, stop.
Finn: Let me see her.
Sheila: I shouldn’t be surprised you’re so stubborn. You are your mother’s son after all.
Finn: We’re nothing alike,
you freaking psycho.
Sheila: I am so proud of you. But you can’t do this anymore. You got to be kind to your body. It’s been through… terrible trauma, and it needs…
Finn: Because you shot me.
Sheila: …My strong, beautiful son. You’ll be back to steffy in no time. As long as you don’t jeopardize your recovery. And I’m here to make sure that you don’T. I’m gonna take care of you, finn. Your mama is always gonna take care of you.
Finn: [Weakly] I just– I’m just trying to make sense of everything.
Sheila: Yeah. Of course you are.
Finn: Like, uh… like the death certificate. Was– was that real?
Sheila: It is.
Finn: How? ‘Cause if I was dead, how did you… bring me back to life? Go with simparica trio it’s triple protection made simple!
Hope: Sheila and mike were pretty tight back in the day.
Deacon: Okay. That’s why it rings a bell. So either this guy is a bad apple who can be threatened or bought off, or maybe he’s just a dumb schmuck who’s hung up on sheila.
Hope: [Groans] Ugh! Yuck! Dad, come on. Sheila carter is a horrible person. Who would wanna be with that?
Deacon: Yes, but to a certain kind of guy, it’s like catnip.
Deacon: Do not underestimate sheila’s appeal. That what makes her so lethal. She’s a–an emotional chameleon. One minute she’s–she’s soft and she’s needy and she’s vulnerable. She’s all, “oh, you know, nobody understands me. I just wanna be loved.” And you wanna reach out, man. You wanna help her. You wanna take care of her. And then next thing you know, boom. She’s got a gun to your head or somebody else’S.
Deacon: All right, anyway, where are we with this guthrie guy?
Hope: [Scoffs] Brooke and ridge went with chief baker to question him, so hopefully we will find out where sheila’s hiding as we speak.
Ridge: Protecting sheila is a really bad idea, ’cause she would throw you under the bus so fast you wouldn’t know what hit you.
Mike: I told ya. I didn’t have anything to do with her getting away.
Ridge: How do you do that? How do you make everything you say sound like a lie?
Brooke: Is there somebody you love, mike?
Mike: Of course.
Brooke: What if there was a psychotic monster out there on the streets that shot your daughter, killed your wife? Would you want that person brought to justice? That’s all we want– justice for finn and for steffy.
Mike: For the last time, I don’t know where she is.
Ridge: Why do you talk to this guy? He’s a liar.
Mike: Believe what you will.
Baker: My best advice? Give sheila up. Because we will find her, guthrie. It’s only a matter of time.
Ridge: Yes, mikey. We’re gonna find her. When we do, you’re not gonna be working in this prison. You’re gonna be living here.
Finn: So, I’m considered officially, legally dead.
Sheila: Yes. The hospital gave up on you. But your mother never did.
[Monitor beeping] No, because she wouldn’T. And that’s why you are here very much alive.
Finn: So, you brought me back to this place all by yourself?
Sheila: You didn’t get here on your own.
Finn: How did you get me out of the morgue?
Sheila: You’re full of questions, aren’t you?
Finn: You had to know I would be eventually.
Sheila: Don’t worry about how I got you here. Just know that you’re recovering and you’re gonna walk right back into your old life.
Finn: Because of you.
Sheila: I’ve been taking care of you for some time, and it has been my honor and joy watching you recover under my care, ’cause I– I wouldn’t give up on you, finn. I wouldn’t do that because I love you too much.
Finn: What exactly did you do?
Finn: What steps did you take to…bring me back and to keep me alive?
Sheila: Oh, whatever– whatever is necessary.
Finn: No, I want the specifics. I’m a doctor. I wanna know. Like what– what treatments? What…procedures? What medications? Well, it can’t be that hard. You know what you did. You know what you gave me. I mean, I was– I was unconscious for a long time. How did you feed me? With an iv? Nasogastric tube? I mean, how did you know how much to give me, how many calories, how much protein, how much feed? Where did you know how to get it? You don’t even know, do you? Because you’re not a doctor. And you haven’t been a nurse for years.
Sheila: All right. Fine. I wasn’t the one that saved you, not at first.
Finn: Who? Who else got me here? Who else knows I’m alive? Look at me, sheila. Tell me. I deserve to know the truth. Tell me!
Sheila: Okay, fine. It was li, your adoptive mother.
Finn: Wait. Mom saved me?
Sheila: I am your mother.
Finn: Where’s my mom? Sheila. Where is she? Tell me. What did you do to her? Sheila, what did you do to my mom? Tell me where my mom is.
