Brooke: Must have been really hard for steffy.
Hope: I mean, can you imagine? How long has she been hoping for her parents to get back together? And then they’re finally standing up there at the altar and she has to make the difficult decision to speak up. I mean, honestly, I’m– I’m proud of her.
Brooke: I am too. It took guts for her to tell the truth, even though taylor wasn’t able to.
Steffy: Oh. Hello. Um… hey, so before you start in on me, I just wanna say–
Brooke: Thank you. I wanna thank you for what you did.
Sheila: Oh! Can I do it again?
Sheila: Come on. Let’s play a game of rummy.
Sheila: All right. Then, how about strip poker?
Deacon: No, thanks.
Sheila: Come on. What’s your problem? I’m– I’m just trying to have a little fun.
Deacon: Yeah. Well, the fun can’t continue.
Sheila: What do you mean?
Deacon: We can’t bury our heads in the sand. Your time’s running out, sheila.
Sheila: Time’s running out?
Sheila: I’ve got news for you, buddy. Time’s running out for all of us. That’s why we have to make the most of it and have as much fun as we can.
Deacon: Yeah. Shacking up with an escaped convict, that’s– that’s fun? That’s making the most of my life?
Sheila: Well, no, it’s not if you keep turning me down.
Deacon: Sheila, listen to me. We cannot keep pretending that this can continue. It can’T. You’re gonna get busted, especially if you keep going out of here in that disguise. This only ends one way. That’s with you in a prison cell.
Finn: Woman wanted for attempted murder, mauled to death.
[ Knock on the door ]
Sanchez: Dr. Finnegan, it’s detective sanchez.
Finn: Come on in, please. Hey, thank you so much for meeting me.
Sanchez: I gotta admit, I was a bit confused by your message. What is this all about?
Brooke: I realize you were in a tough spot finding out what thomas did.
Hope: It was still so hard to believe after all the hard work he put into bettering himself to gain our trust, and then to fake that phone call to cps to make everyone believe that it was my mother.
Steffy: Yeah. And to drag douglas into it and ask him to lie. I really don’t know what to say. I’m– I’m angry. And I’m– I’m embarrassed. I’m horrified. I mean, my parents should be celebrating their honeymoon right now.
Brooke: I know that’s what you wanted, steffy. But it shows a lot about your character, that you’re willing to tell your father the truth. I don’t know what’s gonna happen between ridge and taylor and me, but it doesn’t matter. I didn’t want him to make a decision based on a lie. And that’s thanks to you. So whatever happens, just know that I’m grateful for that. I’m grateful to you.
Steffy: You don’t need to thank me. Telling the truth, exposing my brother, I did it for my parents. So, when they do get married, there won’t be any lies between them.
Brooke: That’s important for any marriage. But I have to say, I’m not sure they’re gonna get married after this.
Steffy: Well, my father has some deep soul searching to do. That’s why he left town. To gain perspective. Same with my mom. But I will say, thomas’s lie, him framing you, it still doesn’t change how my father feels about my mom or what drove him to propose to her and want a future with her.
Brooke: Hmm. What about taylor’s actions? Or should I say lack of action?
Hope: I have to admit, steffy, I mean, it is surprising that taylor decided to keep quiet and– and that she thought there was still a chance for the wedding to happen.
Brooke: Ridge found out that thomas manipulated him into thinking that I lied to him, that I called cps and taylor found out about that moments before the wedding. So she had to know that that’s why ridge left me. That’s why he gave me annulment papers. She realized that the ceremony was based on a lie, but she was still willing to go through with it. I’m stunned. I’m really stunned your mother would do something like that.
Sheila: But what is it with you? Why– why is it always doom and gloom?
Deacon: It’s called facing reality. You can’t hide here forever.
Sheila: I agree. I just–
Deacon: How are you not stressed by this?
Sheila: What good would it do for me to stress? I always land on my feet.
Deacon: Maybe in the past when you had ten toes. Might not be so easy this time. Sheila, face it. You’re living on borrowed time. That prison cell is calling.
Sheila: Okay, I get it. I get it. Things they look dire. But you know what? I’ve had my back up against the wall before. They all thought my days were numbered when I was in genoa city. And– and look what happened? I relocated to los angeles. I… I married eric forrester. And when things got bad, did I– did I panic? Did I give in to the negativity? No, I didn’T. I reinvented myself because that’s what I do. And this isn’t gonna be any different, I promise you that, deacon. I am going to walk away a free woman again.
Deacon: You shot two people. You kept a guy prisoner. You drove a woman off a pier. But yeah, freedom’s right around the corner for you.
Sheila: Of course it is. Have you ever heard of a corpse going to prison before? Everyone thinks I’m dead. And if they try to lock up this ghost, I’m gonna float right through those bars again.
[ Sheila laughing ]
Finn: Something’s been bothering me. Haven’t been able to put it out of my mind.
Finn: And I know I should just accept it and move on. You know, forget all about it. About her. Did you bring it?
Sanchez: Yeah, I did. And along with everything else pertaining to the case.
Finn: And it’s okay that I have it?
Sanchez: Yeah. Like I said on the phone, case is closed. I mean, they were a little delayed, but the medical examiner wanted this to go to the next of kin or be destroyed. So as sheila carter’s son, this now belongs to you. A mystery!
Steffy: Please don’t judge my mother. She wasn’t planning on keeping the secret.
Hope: Just long enough to marry ridge? I mean, I’m not trying to judge. It just, it does seem a little shady.
Steffy: My brother convinced her not to say anything. And his argument, it’s– it’s valid because he said my father was marrying my mom, not because of the cps call, not because of you, brooke, because he actually loves my mother. So why should we spoil the wedding?
Brooke: Well, thankfully you felt otherwise.
Steffy: Yeah, I do agree with thomas somewhat. I know that my father loves my mom. He assured us. And that’s why he was marrying her. But like I said, I didn’t want them to start a life based on a lie. I didn’t want there to be any secrets between them.
Hopes: No matter what the motivation, I mean, we’re grateful to you. I mean, thank you for speaking up when you did.
Steffy: Yeah, yeah, of course. Um, hey, it looks like I’m gonna have to miss the hope for the future meeting. I– I– you can forward me all the notes if that’s all right.
Hope: Yeah, no, sure. Actually, I mean, it’s starting soon, right? So, I should probably get going.
Hope: Is everything okay?
Steffy: Uh, yeah. Finn just asked me to go to the hospital. I’m not sure what it’s about.
Brooke: Well, thank you again, steffy. I am very impressed with what you did.
Steffy: I don’t know if that’s a compliment or an insult, but you’re welcome.
[ Thomas sighs ] What’s going on?
Sheila: Hey. Thanks to my cleverness, everyone thinks I’m dead and I am out of prison and off everyone’s radar.
Deacon: Thanks to your craziness, you mean. I feel like they should give you a discount on shoes when you have nine toes. I still cannot believe that you did that.
Sheila: You know what? Desperate times call for desperate measures. Nurse sheila’s surgery, it worked out just fine. And that’s all that matters.
Sanchez: You know, forgive me for asking, but what are you hoping to find with this? Closure?
Sanchez: You said something was bothering you.
Finn: Just how she died. So brutally. I guess I’m just looking for a little more insight into what went down.
Sanchez: Well, I mean, you could, um, call a zookeeper. I’m sure they’d be able to tell you a little bit more about bear behavior than some chomped off toe can.
Finn: That may be right.
Sanchez: I should get going. It was good seeing you. You can give me a call if you have any more questions.
Finn: All right. Thank you.
Sanchez: Mm-hmm. Hello, steffy.
Steffy: Hi, detective sanchez.
Sanchez: You’re doing well?
Steffy: Uh, yeah. I’m fine. Is everything okay?
Sanchez: Yeah. Just dropping something off to your husband. I’m sure he’ll explain.
Steffy: Good to see you. Why was detective sanchez here?
[ Steffy gasps ] Is that– what are you doing with sheila’s toe?
Finn: Hopefully getting some much needed answers. (Birds chirping)
Thomas: You should probably take that photo home with you, by the way. Dad’s not gonna want it around once he’s married to my mother. That’s still happening, by the way, even after this little hiccup.
Brooke: Hiccup? That’s what you’re calling what you did to me and to your father. What is wrong with you, thomas?
Thomas: I don’t know. I– I mean, I had a really screwed-up stepmom when I was a kid.
Brooke: Oh, my god!
Thomas: Other than that–
Brooke: This again? Do you really hate me that much?
Thomas: I don’t hate you, brooke. God, honestly, I don’t even think about you that much.
Brooke: Oh, you do. You think about me all the time. You think about how to ruin my life, how to destroy my marriage.
Thomas: That’s not about you. That’s about my father and wanting what’s best for him and his happiness.
Brooke: Thomas, you don’t give a damn about your father and what he wants. All you want is your little fantasy of having your family back together. Well, you know what? You hurt your father. You betrayed him by destroying our marriage. What has he done for you? He’s done nothing but defend you and love you and supports you. And this is how you repay him? This is how you show your love? What? You have nothing to say?
Thomas: What do you want me to say? Like, I’m sorry. Or I really want you and my dad to live happily ever after? No, I’m not gonna do that.
Brooke: Wow. You have no remorse. None at all.
Thomas: Because I don’t want you with my dad and ruining his relationship with my mom? No, I don’t have remorse for that.
Brooke: I’m really worried about you, thomas.
Thomas: Don’t be. I’m fine.
Brooke: No, you’re not fine. I’m worried about all the things that you’ve done, the lies, the manipulations, the things you’ve done to my daughter, how you treated her, your schemes, your bad choices. You’ve done so much. But this time, you’ve gone too far. You hurt both of your parents, thomas. This time, you’re going to pay for what you’ve done.
Steffy: Answers about sheila from her toe? What exactly are you talking about?
Finn: Something about her death just never sat right with me.
Steffy: I mean, you’re not wrong. I definitely had my questions and concerns, but it seems like all the evidence from the scene adds up. I mean, perfect example. Her toe is proof.
Finn: Chomped off toe as sanchez put it.
Steffy: What exactly are you thinking?
Finn: It’s just a little convenient, right? This idea that sheila was attacked and mauled by a bear? I– I– I avoided bringing it up to you. You just had so much going on with your family.
Steffy: Bringing what up?
Finn: This suspicion I’ve had. I mean, does this look chomped off to you?
Steffy: I don’t– I don’t really know. That’s not my area of expertise.
Finn: I wanna look at it closer, like under a microscope. But just to the naked eye, it’s– it looks too clean.
Steffy: Oh, my god. Are you suggesting sheila isn’t dead?
Finn: I think she’s alive, steffy. Sheila carter is alive.
Sheila: This little piggy went to market. This little piggy stayed home. And this little piggy had roast beef. This little piggy had none. And this little piggy, well, she had to take one for the team. But she’s kept mama out of prison.
Steffy: Is it true? Is sheila alive? Oh, my god.
