Bold & The Beautiful Transcript

Finn: There’s just no way a bear could have done this. It was sliced right off and then these cuts were made to look like a tear. But they’re too clean. They’re– they’re too precise.
Steffy: Only a demented woman like sheila carter will go to such unthinkable lengths.
Finn: Well, she had to make sure the police would stop looking for her. And she did. That’s why detective sanchez brought me all this. Case closed.
Steffy: Except based on what you found out, sheila is not dead at all.
Deacon: Where the hell did you go, sheila? What are you up to now?
Carter: Hey, brooke.
Carter: Hi. Oh, wow. That’s a great shot of you and ridge.
Brooke: Yeah. It was a beautiful day.
Carter: Listen, about the wedding that didn’t happen, I haven’t spoken to ridge, but when I see him, I–
Brooke: I don’t think you’ll see him any time soon.
Brooke: He left to take some much needed time.
Carter: Of course. For what it’s worth, while I have great respect for taylor, I’m hoping those annulment papers that I had to deliver to you will have been a waste of time.
Bill: What are you doing here?
Katie: Oh, I’m just grabbing some stuff for will.
Bill: He’s home?
Katie: No, I’m sending him a care package, and he’s been wanting these things, so. Are you okay? You don’t seem like yourself. Bill, no.
Carter: So where do things stand with you and ridge?
Brooke: Nothing’s been decided yet. He’s gone away to make some decisions about his life. I told him I needed somebody who was completely committed to me. And I just couldn’t do that back and forth thing with taylor anymore. So, you know, we’ll see how things are when he gets back. But in the meantime, I know that there’s somebody else reevaluating their life. My sister. Donna and I have been talking with katie, and we just get the feeling that your friendship with her has evolved into more than just a friendship. Am I right?
Bill: It’s just whiskey, katie, relax.
Katie: I’m not talking about the drink. You’re wearing your sword necklace again. Why?
Bill: Why? I feel like I need the extra protection.
Katie: Protection from what?
Bill: Do you really care?
Katie: Yes, of course I care.
Bill: Just not enough to take me back.
Bill: Yeah, forget it. I’m just not in a– in a good place, not making the best life decisions.
Katie: Dark place? I’m assuming this has to do with brooke?
Finn: So, we need to go through that evidence very carefully with our theory in mind that sheila wasn’t mauled by a bear.
Steffy: Showing us it was a calculated move on sheila’s part, and that’s how she ended the manhunt.
Finn: Believe me, I would love to be wrong about this. All right, the thought of having to deal with my mother again and the threat that she still poses to our family if she’s alive and out there? I tried to tell myself that that was all behind us, but I– I just–
Steffy: Something was nagging at you. How sheila supposedly died.
Finn: Look, we don’t have any time to waste. For our safety. If what we think is true, sheila is as dangerous now as she ever was. Maybe even more. (Birds chirping)
Katie: Bill, what’s going on with you? You’re– you’re in this dark place, you– you’re wearing your sword necklace, which is a harbinger of things to come, usually bad things.
Bill: I told you, I feel like I need the extra protection from myself.
Katie: I know that this has to do with brooke and I also know what you said to her at her house the other day and it doesn’t matter how I heard. The point is–
Bill: The point is I have been making such bad decisions for so long. Wanting what I shouldn’t want when what I really needed was you. I don’t know how many ways to say it, katie. I don’t know how many times I need to apologize. I have been a colossal ass. My own worst enemy. But I really do need you, especially now. I– I hate feeling this way. I hate what my life has become.
Katie: Do you know what I hate? I hate that my ex-husband, the father of my child, and the man that I gave my whole heart to loves my sister.
Bill: You’re not hearing a word that I’m saying. So you want to give up on me? On our family? For carter walton?
Brooke: Carter, I have tremendous respect for you, but I can’t help but look out for my sister.
Carter: That’s what good sisters do.
Brooke: I know she’s a grown woman and she can take care of herself, but she’s been through a lot. And I’m not just talking about bill.
Carter: Her heart transplant.
Brooke: She never mentions it. She just goes about life like we all do.
Carter: I totally understand, you don’t even have to explain.
Brooke: There is something I do have to explain. The day of ridge and taylor’s wedding, you were at my house overhearing bill and me talking and then katie and bill talking.
Carter: How do you know that?
Brooke: Because katie told me.
Carter: What? How– how did she find out?
Brooke: Because she overheard you and bill talking. But more importantly, she heard you say all these wonderful things about her.
Carter: I meant every word.
Deacon: That’s definitely not mine. I’m not sure if you’re coming back, sheila. I hope you don’t, but you’re definitely not getting traced back here when you get busted.
Steffy: Okay, we know from the convenience store footage that sheila was in the sierra mountains.
Finn: And the abandoned car with the fingerprints that the park ranger found.
Steffy: It was all part of her twisted plan.
Finn: Well, she needed to drop out of sight permanently. Best way to do that is to make people think you’re dead.
Steffy: Okay, what do we have here? Sheila’s I.D., Busted phone from the alleged bear attack.
Finn: Check this out. Sheila’s hair. The roots are still attached, which would indicate that it was pulled out, not cut, which would be in line with an attack.
Steffy: Or she yanked it out herself.
Finn: The whole scene is circumstantial if you think about it. Everything here indicates a bear attack. When you look at every single item individually and know who you’re dealing with? I wish it wasn’t the case, but I feel even more confident now that our theory is correct. Sheila isn’t dead.
Steffy: No. She staged her own death. (Vo) no matter what type of severe asthma you have,…
Brooke: I don’t mean to make you feel self-conscious, I don’T. It’s just– I mean, I’m sure it’s very surprising for you to find out that katie overheard your conversation with bill and some of those things she passed on to donna and me.
Carter: No, I’m not– I’m not self-conscious. I know how close katie is to her sisters.
Brooke: Okay, well, the logans look out for each other. At least we try to.
Carter: Katie is a remarkable, intelligent, beautiful woman. She deserves a lot better than bill spencer.
Bill: Do you have any idea what it does to me every time you push me away? I have practically gotten on my knees and begged you for another chance. And when you reject–
Katie: I’m not rejecting you. I’m just trying to tell you that what you say you want can’t happen for reasons that you know.
Bill: I’ll tell you what I know. What I know is that everyone in my life has abandoned me. Even justin, a so-called best friend, turned his back on me. Don’t turn your back on me, katie. We can start over. I promise you, I promise you that I will make you the center of my world. You will never have any reason to feel anything but my commitment and my devotion. It will be you. You and only you. I swear that’s how it will be. Just give me one chance to prove it.
Deacon: She had so much crap here. Ugh. Okay, it’s called self preservation. Sheila, I mean, you know, that’s something you know all about, right? Just gotta cut all ties with her before anyone realizes she didn’t kick the damn bucket.
Steffy: My god, finn, when I think what this means.
Finn: Look, I wish I was wrong, but it all adds up. The question now is where is she? Is she in L.A? Did she go on the run, did she sneak across the border?
Steffy: If it weren’t for you and hayes, I think she’d be long gone. But we know how obsessed she is with her son and her grandson. I think she’s crazy enough to stay here in L.A.
Finn: Well, if she is, where would she be?
Steffy: I don’t know. But there’s someone, I think, who can give us answers. With metro…
Brooke: I’ve worked hard to try to keep katie and bill’s family together. But you know what? After some of the things that bill has said to me, I think it’s better that katie actually moves on with somebody that I admire and respect. Well, you did have your little slip up with quinn. But I know you’re a man of integrity.
Carter: I appreciate that. But to be honest, I don’t know where katie and I stand. We haven’t really even started yet.
Brooke: I have a good feeling about you two.
Carter: That’s kind, but I’m not naive. I know bill’s a man who doesn’t like to lose, and he’s trying to get in katie’s head, convince her to come back to him.
[ Brooke sighing ]
Bill: Whatever it takes for you to trust me again, tell me and I’ll do it. Whatever it takes for you to come back to me.
Katie: Bill, we will always be a family and I will always care about you. But anything more than that, it’s just– what you’re asking is not possible. I’m moving on.
Bill: With carter?
Katie: Oh. I– I don’t know. I– I don’t know. I– all I do know is that he is kind, and he’s sincere, and he’s honest, and when I– when I look in his eyes, I can see that he’s telling the truth.
Bill: Truth. The truth is that I have done everything I can to reach you. And yet you won’t let me back in. And that frustrates me. And more than that, it hurts me. But it also makes me angry. Angry at myself for losing you. Angry at the situation we find ourselves in, where you’re wanting to move on. But just know this. I will not give up. I will not lose you to carter walton or anyone else. I do not lose. I need you. I need you now, my katie. Like never before.
[ Knock on door ]
Deacon: Seriously? Come on. Just a second. Be right there. Steffy.
Deacon: Finn. Uh.
Deacon: Hey. Hey, guys, I’m sorry, I’ve gotta be at work in a few minutes.
Steffy: No problem. It’ll only take a minute.
Deacon: Okay, uh, what’s this about?
Steffy: Well, first of all, we want to thank you. We owe you a huge debt of gratitude.
Finn: Yeah, if it weren’t for you that awful night in the alley–
Deacon: No, no–
Finn: If you hadn’t found us–
Deacon: Please, guys, look, I’m just happy you’re both fine.
Steffy: Yeah. We’re still trying to put everything that happened behind us.
Deacon: Yeah, I know what you mean. I– I’m trying to forget it myself.
Steffy: But we can’t forget. Not anymore.
Deacon: Not anymore. What do you– what do you mean?
Steffy: This is gonna sound crazy, but we discovered some really unsettling things and we believe… no, we know. We know sheila’s alive. She faked her own death. She wasn’t mauled by a bear. Sheila is alive. Sheila carter is alive.
