Deacon: Take it easy there, stumble-dore. You don’t have a nasty fall.
Sheila: You think it’s wise to tease a woman that’s willing to cut off her own toe to stay out of prison?
Deacon: You know, sheila, I’m not even gonna mention the creep factor, having your little friend over there. But I mean, the lengths that you’ll go to– to get what you want, it’s disturbing.
Sheila: You should remember that, handsome.
Li: Sheila’s pure evil. She was pure evil. Still scares the hell outta me that she almost took you from me.
Finn: I know. I know. Me too, but I’m here. Okay. We’re here.
Li: You know, I’m actually surprised you chose this restaurant of all places given what happened in the alley.
Finn: No, but I’m not gonna let that night define the rest of my life. Plus, this place has the best ravioli in L.A., So.
Li: How do you do that? No matter what happens, your light… your warmth never dims.
Finn: I mean, I’m just– I’m grateful, mom. And now more than ever, I have this amazing second chance at life. And it’s all because of you.
Brooke: Douglas is spending another night at eric’s?
Hope: He said he was having a great time.
Brooke: And you’re comfortable with that?
Hope: I am trying to keep an open mind. And besides, I’ve always wanted him to have a strong relationship with his father.
Liam: Yeah. We want that too, but thomas getting quality time with his son, it’s not exactly the concern.
Brooke: I am getting worried that thomas has no intention of bringing douglas home.
Taylor: You know, douglas, these are so good. You’re– you’re really good at this.Nd and I’m not just saying that because you’re my grandson. Like these are spectacular.
Douglas: I’m sorry, I didn’t make you an outer space painting. When I got back from the playground with kelly, there were– all the paints were gone. I guess maybe one of the housekeepers threw it away by accident.
Eric: Yeah. Maybe that’s what happened here. Yeah, that’s like– stuff like that happens from time to time. Don’t worry about it.
Thomas: You’d be surprised how often.
Taylor: Yeah, but you know what? Today, I am gonna go and get you all new supplies, smocks and paints and– and the works, you know?
Taylor: Paint can get really messy when you’re on a mission.
Eric: You know, you’re really a wonderful artist. You really are. You are, uh, definitely a forrester.
Douglas: Well, thank you for letting me stay here the last night, great-granddad.
Eric: You don’t have to thank me. You can stay here anytime you want. This is your home too.
Douglas: I’m having so much fun here and the best time with dad.
Finn: What? What, do I have sauce on my shirt?
Li: Well, maybe a little.
Finn: Where? I don’t have any– are you serious? Are you serious? I don’t have.
Li: Where do you think you get your sense of humor? It’s just to see you healthy and happy is all I hope for. It’s a miracle you’re alive.
Finn: I guess that makes you a miracle worker.
Sheila: Finn is still my whole life. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him. I can’t go back to prison. I’ve already missed too much of his life.
Deacon: What are you talking about?
Sheila: Oh, my god. Well, to– to think that I could see him strong and healthy again.
Deacon: Are you– are you insane? Don’t even answer that. If finn even gets a glimpse of you, that whole bear mauling death hoax thing, the one that necessitated you cutting off one of your little piglets. Guess what? That gets torn to shreds.
Sheila: Yeah. Well, you– I have a disguise. Do you remember that?
Deacon: Okay. Don’t get cocky, all right? I was drunk and hope said that you looked familiar when she came in here. Great.
Deacon: My phone’s dead and I need it for work. Look, just lie low. Don’t do anything that’s gonna risk getting us thrown back in prison.
Liam: By the way, I hope you don’t feel like we’re ganging up on you.
Hope: No, I don’T. I know you’re worried and I am too. It’s just–
Brooke: Douglas has been with thomas for days. It is time for him to come home.
Hope: And I agree. I actually talked to thomas yesterday and expressed my concerns.
Hope: He asked me to give him the benefit of the doubt.
Brooke: Honey, haven’t you been doing that for years? After everything he’s put you through.
Hope: Thomas has changed though.
Brooke: Okay. Maybe he’s trying to change, but definitely not enough to have that little boy alone.
Hope: Thomas actually suggested that I go to eric’s and see just how great a time that douglas has with him there.
Eric: You know, douglas, as long as it’s okay with your father and mother, you can stay here as long as you want. And I promise there’ll always be a lot of art supplies. Lots of paint, lots of brushes.
Douglas: Can we paint together?
Eric: Absolutely. As long as you remember one thing, you have to remember who taught your father and your grandfather everything they know.
[ Taylor laughing ]
Douglas: Okay. Can we do it now?
Thomas: Wait. Oh, hold on. You got reading to finish. Come on. Let’s get to it.
Douglas: Okay. But after?
Eric: Absolutely. That’s a great kid.
Thomas: Yeah, he is.
Eric: He reminds me of you when you were his age. Curious and eager.
Taylor: Yeah. It’s no wonder you guys get along so well.
Thomas: We’ve lost so much time together and it– it’s great having this time, but you know, I don’t– I don’t wanna be apart from my son another day.
Li: You know, it’s understandable that sheila’s death is complicated for you, sweetheart. She was a monster, but she was also your birth mother.
Finn: I mean, I’d always hoped to find out where I came from. I just never thought in a million years it would be someone like her. You know, she showed up on my wedding day. That’s the best day of my life. And it’s just been one nightmare after another.
Li: It’s finally over.
Finn: It is. But do I feel conflicted? I wish things were different. I wish she was different. I’d hope to find some good in her somewhere. I mean, that’s– that’s why I held on for so long. But there wasn’t, it was just darkness. And she tried to kill steffy. She shot me. She almost killed you.
Li: Thank god the nightmare is finally over. Sheila is dead, and we’re finally free.
Sheila: Deacon, I assure you that I’m being very careful. I didn’t go through the trouble of cutting off my own toe to do something stupid that was gonna put me back in prison.
Deacon: Yeah. Which is exactly what we’ll be if you get caught.
Sheila: My disguise works.
Deacon: You got lucky.
Sheila: No, you got lucky. You fell for it. You fell for me. Hope fell for it too.
Deacon: Hope said you look familiar. She was trying to figure out where she knew you from.
Sheila: She didn’t recognize me. Hope looked me dead in the eyes and she didn’t have a clue who I was.
Brooke: So, thomas wants you to go over to eric’s so that he can prove to you that douglas should be living with him. Hope, you can’t let that happen.
Hope: I know. Mom, I know. This is douglas’s home. This is where he belongs. He has a little sister who’s missing him, but I also don’t wanna start some nasty custody battle.
Liam: That you’ll win.
Hope: Well, we don’t know that, and either way, it will be very difficult for douglas. I just want him happy and healthy.
Brooke: Honey, that’s what we all want. And you and liam, you’ve created this wonderful environment here where he has flourished. Thomas wanting douglas to be with him is more about thomas than douglas.
Hope: And that is why I’m taking him up on his offer.
Liam: Wait, you’re going over to eric’s?
Hope: To pay them a surprise visit.
Thomas: You know, when I came back to L.A., I– I– I did a lot of things I’m not proud of. Douglas needed a stable home and hope and liam provided him that.
Eric: They did a great job with douglas.
Thomas: I wasn’t fit to raise him on my own.
Taylor: Yeah. But look at you now. You– you got help and you did a lot of hard work, so.
Thomas: Yeah. It’s ’cause I love douglas more than anything in the world. I wanna be the kind of father he can be proud of. The kind of father he deserves, you know? And– and I think I am now. Right? If I didn’t think I was ready, then I wouldn’t be doing this. I wouldn’t be pushing for this, but I am. He’s lived with– with hope for so long and– and it’s time for him to live with me.
Eric: Well, I hate to say this, but you could be in for a pretty long, difficult custody battle.
Thomas: Yeah. I hope it doesn’t come to that. I believe I can convince hope that this is where douglas belongs.
Without the right start
to your day…
Li: Thank you. I really enjoy our get-togethers. I just– just wish we didn’t spend the whole time talking about sheila.
Finn: Yeah. Yeah. But you know, I think it’s good to get it all out. You know, it’s healthy. It’s– she’s been such a weight on all of our lives.
Li: I hate that you went through all of this.
Finn: Yeah, me too. But I’ve been talking with taylor and now she says it’s important to try and find the silver lining when one reflects on traumatic events.
Li: Silver lining?
Finn: Yeah. Like how the good in us push through. You know, even when it was dark. I took a bullet for my wife. I saved steffy’s life and now we’re back together. And after she thought she lost me forever, that– that deepened our love beyond words. Not so different than a mother doing everything she could to save her son’s life, risking her own life to do so. I can’t describe to you how much I love you.
Li: I love you too.
Finn: But, now we’re free. And we never have to worry about sheila again.
Deacon: Okay. I’m gonna head down to work. Sheila, please. Pretty please. Just– just stay here. Don’t do anything that’s gonna wind up putting us back behind bars.
Sheila: I glad your confidence in me is just exhilarating.
Deacon: You know, you’ve done some terrible things in your life, but I have never doubted how much you love finn. I know that you wanna have–
Sheila: No, I– I need.
Deacon: You need to see him again, but you can’T. It’s too dangerous. Be good
Sheila: Deacon. Deacon.
Brooke: So, how are you handling all of this?
Liam: Uh, you know, it’s fine. I’m fine. I– you know, I– I don’t wanna push too hard, but I also trust hope implicitly whatever she ends up deciding.
Liam: But, I don’t trust thomas and I never have and I never will. And we’re talking about douglas’s health and well-being here, so.
Brooke: Yeah, I agree.
Liam: Here’s– here’s the thing. Hope has this amazing ability as you know, to forgive, right? She can look at anyone and see the good in them. And I just– I just– I don’t want thomas taking advantage of that and convincing her to let him keep douglas full-time.
Brooke: Okay. So we can’t let that happen. I fear for that boy if he’s taken from the home that you and hope have created.
Thomas: I wanna thank you for always being there for me. It’s hard. Sometimes, some people only see you at your worst.
Taylor: Yeah. But there are only a few of those. Okay? And I will always support you because I’m your mom. And I believe with all my heart that you can provide a loving home for your son. And that’s what he is. He’s your son.
Taylor: Hi, hope. I will give you guys some time.
Thomas: Okay. Come on in.
Hope: So I, um, wanted to take you up on your offer. I stopped by so I could see what it’s like here for douglas.
Thomas: Wow. I– thank you so much. I know this isn’t exactly easy for you. The fact that you’re trying it– it means so much to me. Thanks for giving me a chance. For giving douglas and me a chance. I’m steve.
Liam: You know what’s funny is that after all this time, I still just– I hate thomas and hope alone together. I hate it. And I know– I mean, I gue– I know that the guy’s been working on himself and to some degree, he’s changed.
Brooke: Deep down though, you still feel that he’s in love with her, still obsessed with her. It would be foolish not to keep her guard up.
Liam: Yes. But in this one instance, I am totally supportive of hope going over there because I want her to see with her own eyes what the deal is with thomas and douglas.
Hope: So, what have you two been up to?
Thomas: We’ve been having so much fun. We’ve been reading, uh, hiking, swimming. I mean, douglas is just having a great time.
Douglas: Dad, dad, dad, dad.
Douglas: You’re never gonna believe this, but did you know that spiders aren’t insects? They’re animals.
Douglas: Oh, mom!
Thomas: What are you doing here?
Hope: Oh, I just– I miss you.
Douglas: I miss you too. Same for liam and beth, but I’m having so much fun here. Thank you for letting me stay here.
Deacon: Excuse me, sir. If you’re done with that, I’ll be happy to–
Finn: Deacon. Hey, man. Come here. I, um, you know what? I– I still haven’t thanked you.
Deacon: No, no, come on. It’s okay.
Finn: It is not okay. I mean, I– you saved my life. I’ve been meaning to reach out and I just have–
Deacon: Listen, coming back from the dead, it’s busy work.
Finn: Yeah. Yeah. But you saved my entire world and if you hadn’t come, steffy and I, we would’ve–
Deacon: I was at the right place at the right time. You are the walking miracle.
Finn: No. Well, it’s a miracle that wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t called 9-1-1.
Deacon: I’m just glad you’re okay. How– how you feeling?
Finn: I’m good. I’m good. I’m just taking it one day at a time.
Deacon: It’s gotta be incredible to be back with your wife and your kids and I hear your mom’s doing okay too.
Finn: Yeah, she is. Um, my mother’s a strong woman.
Deacon: I– I’m just so sorry you guys had to go through this. I can’t even believe it.
Finn: It has been easier to do now that sheila no longer a threat. I assume you heard through hope that sheila, she– she died?
Finn: Something wrong?
