Finn: I mean, sheila’s here because of me. I’m the one who brought her back into your life.
Steffy: None of this is your fault, finn.
Finn: Look, I– I vowed to protect you and the kids. Our family. And instead, I put you at risk. Sheila was in this restaurant. You two were face-to-face.
Steffy: All this time, we thought she was dead. Sheila’s alive.
Steffy: Mom, I feel bad. Oh, my– oh, my gosh. I am so sorry. I–
Sheila: No, no, no, no.
Steffy: No, let me just see. I just wanna check. I feel terrible. I’m so sor–
[ Steffy gasping ] Sheila!
[ Sheila sighing ]
Hope: So, sales just posted our latest numbers.
Brooke: I saw. Congratulations, honey.
Hope: Thank you. I still need to go over them with production though.
Brooke: Oh, I’ll do that for you, if you need me to.
Hope: Are you sure?
Brooke: Yeah. I need to stay busy. I wanna work, especially now that ridge is gone. You know, there’s only so much christmas shopping I can do.
Hope: Okay, true. And there is a lot to do here. I mean, our collection is blowing up.
Brooke: You should be very proud. It’s st a little bittersweet, given that thomas was a huge part of that success. And knowing that he was just trying to sabotage your marriage just…
Brooke: Honey, honey. You need to enjoy your achievement, okay? Thomas is keeping his distance. Douglas is back home where he belongs, with you, liam and beth, and it’s the holidays.
Hope: Mom, I know, it’s just, I find it a little hard to relax knowing that sheila carter could still be out there somewhere.
Brooke: So, you’re thinking about sheila too.
Hope: I just– I keep hoping that finn and steffy are wrong. I mean, sheila, she can’t be alive. I mean, how is that even possible, but what if it is true?
Brooke: It is a disturbing thought, but we all know what sheila is capable of. And I hate to say it, but finn and steffy, they are right to be worried.
Steffy: Finn, I know you wanna take this on yourself, but you’re one of sheila’s victims too.
Paul: Hey, guys. I just heard about the bump in. I’m gonna let everyone know to keep an eye out, okay?
Finn: Thank you. Deacon is going through the security footage to see if it was caught on camera.
Baker: All right. You can tape this right here at this table. Tape that table off there. No questions. Ah, dr. Finnegan, ms. Forrester. I’m glad the both of you are here. I need to get your statements before we talk to the staff.
Finn: Thank you for coming.
Baker: Of course. I wanna get to the bottom of this as bad as you do. So, tell me what happened.
Steffy: I saw sheila carter here in this restaurant.
[ Phone ringing ]
Deacon: Come on, pick up.
[ Phone ringing ]
Sheila: Why are you calling me again? I told you not to worry about me.
Deacon: Well, you know, I’d love not to worry, except I’m looking at the security footage and I’m worried as hell.
Sheila: You just– you just need to stay out of this.
Deacon: That’d be great, except your super smart son and his wife put me on the job.
Sheila: Wait, so you’re working for them? But you’re calling me?
Deacon: Nobody knows I have this burner phone. Listen to me. This is important. Sheila, when you ran into steffy, it was– it was in the hallway, right outside the bathroom.
Deacon: And nobody else was there?
[ Sheila sighing ]
Sheila: I don’t know. I don’t think so.
Deacon: Hold on, hold on. I think I found it. Yeah, caught on camera.
Sheila: Can you see my face?
Deacon: Well, you’re wearing that stupid disguise, but yeah.
Sheila: You need to get rid of it.
Sheila: Steffy, finn, no one can see that footage, deacon. Just delete it. Now! Hey! It’s me! Your dry skin!
Brooke: If finn is right and sheila’s alive, the police will confirm it.
Hope: Oh, so then what? They open her case and start looking for her again?
Brooke: If they haven’t already.
[ Hope sighing ]
Hope: Just, finn and steffy have already been through so much. I mean, sheila tried to kill both of them. This must be theirBrooke: Yes. It is a very stressful situation for all of us. But, we can’t let the fear set in.
Hope: Are you nervous about staying home alone in the house without ridge?
Brooke: No, I’m not nervous.
Hope: ‘Cause it’s just I– I have noticed you have been coming into the office a lot lately.
Brooke: Well, yeah. I mean, there’s a lot of work to do around here, especially since ridge is gone. And if sheila is on the loose, we’re gonna have to step in a lot more and help steffy out.
Hope: And we will. It’s just… I want you to be open about your feelings, mom. I mean, be honest. How do you really feel about ridge? I mean, what are you going to do when he gets back?
Baker: The forensics team is examining the evidence again. They’re looking into your theory.
Steffy: It’s more than a theory. Sheila carter is alive. She was here.
Baker: The woman that you ran into outside of the restroom.
Steffy: Yes, yes. I didn’t recognize her at first. She was like in some kind of disguise. I looked up at her and her hair and her face, it was… it was different, but there was something so… familiar about her and that’s when we locked eyes and my– my blood went cold. And that when I said– I said, “sheila.” Sheila. Oh, my god. Sheila. I was stunned. I looked away for a second and she was gone. I was so shocked, I just– I just stood there.
Baker: You didn’t follow her?
Finn: No. We know what happened last time my wife followed sheila into an alley.
Steffy: It was sheila.
Baker: Okay, this definitely requires further investigation.
Steffy: Of course it does.
Finn: Deacon sharpe, he’s going through the restaurant security footage right now. Hopefully, she’ll be on camera.
Sheila: You have to erase it. No one else can see that footage.
Deacon: How the hell am i supposed to explain erasing it?
Sheila: You’re just gonna delete it. You’re gonna do it. Do it now, deacon.
[ Deacon panting ]
Deacon: Okay, okay, it’s done, all right? It’s done.
Sheila: Oh. I owe you so much. You gave me A… a place to stay and you never treated me like I was a monster. I am moving on. I’m– I’m never going to bother you again.
Deacon: Sheila– sheila, listen to me. You can’t run, all right? I mean, finn and steffy already called the cops. They’re certain it’s you. They know you’re in L.A.
Sheila: Well, thanks to you, they’re not gonna know who they’re looking for.
Deacon: Sheila, running is not the answer. If you do, you’re gonna wind up in prison and they’re just gonna add more years to your sentence. Just listen to me. You– you gotta turn yourself in. You gotta throw yourself in the mercy of the court. Maybe you’ll see daylight before you’re too old to enjoy it. Sheila, please. You know that this is the only way.
Sheila: No, I’ve told you. There’s always a way out. Goodbye, deacon.
Deacon: Sheila. Sheila, hello?
[ Phone beeping ]
[ Sheila sighing ] Bye, bye cough.
Steffy: I’m telling you, it was her. Her reaction was unmistakable when I said her name. Sheila carter was closer to me than
Finn: She can’t get away again.
Baker: All right. Let’s check out the footage. If we get a decent image and forensics confirms that it’s her, then I can send it out to the airports and bus stations.
Finn: You need to warn them that she’s armed. I don’t want her to hurt anyone else. We need to catch her and put her away once and for all.
Hope: Well, it’s just, you haven’t said much about ridge since he left, so I was just wondering if you’d heard from him.
Brooke: Ridge is just taking much needed time to process everything that has happened. Make some decisions about what he wants for his life, his future.
Hope: It’s yours, too. I mean, aren’t you a part of that decision?
Brooke: Honey, I love him. I want to be with him, but I told ridge I can’t do this back and forth thing anymore. This tug of war. If he wants to be with me, he needs to be completely committed to me. Nobody else.
Hope: Well, I am, uh, glad to hear you say that because that is what you deserve.
Brooke: Yeah, well. Took me a long time to figure that out.
Hope: Well look, mom. I don’t want to bring up anything that’s painful and you know, I’m really sorry that this is what your relationship with ridge has become. You know him not being able to make up his mind once again, but I’m just saying, there is a man who is here who I know would give anything to be with you, who loves you unconditionally and who just happens to be my dad.

[ Knocking on door ]
Steffy: Deacon, what did you find?
Deacon: So, chief baker, you think sheila is alive too?
Baker: Oh, just checking a theory. Due diligence. You were looking over the security?
Deacon: Yeah, what there is of it.
Baker: Did you happen to see the woman that steffy bumped in to?
Deacon: I’ve been through this three times. I didn’t see anything.
Steffy: Nothing? Nothing.
Deacon: Look, sometimes, the wi-fi, it… it, you know, it goes out. I mean, there’s gaps and stuff. I think that’s what happened here. I didn’t see that woman or sheila or whoever it was.
Steffy: What? I– I saw her. I saw her. I don’t care if she was on the video or not, sheila carter was there. Chief baker, you have to do something. She can’t escape this time. My family was nearly destroyed because of her. She tried to kill me. She held my husband hostage, my family, my children were traumatized and heartbroken. She needs to pay for her crimes.
[ Knocking on door ]
Deacon: Please don’t let it be sheila, please don’t let it be sheila. Hey, paul. Come on in.
Paul: Hey, man. You all right? Why’d you take off? Are you– are you packing?
Deacon: Uh, yeah. I was actually gonna talk to you about that.
Paul: Well, what’s going on? Where are you going?
Deacon: Um, you know how the owners are always talking about maybe selling il giardino?
Paul: Yeah, sure. Anthony’s wanted to retire for awhile.
Deacon: Right. You know, he says if he can find the right person. Well, he thinks I might be the right guy.
Paul: You run il giardino?
Deacon: It could be a hell of an opportunity.
Paul: Well, then why are you leaving?
Deacon: Well, I gotta get some funding together. Uh, I gotta go overseas, italy. My– my P.O., He actually signed off on it. Look, if– if I could just get some backers together, I think I could actually make my dream of turning il giardino into deacon’s place a reality.
Paul: Deacon’s place, huh?
Deacon: That’s got a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Paul: Yeah, but–
Deacon: No, no, hey. Don’t worry. I’m gonna keep everybody on.
Deacon: But uh, if this is gonna happen, I can’t wait.
Paul: Wait, so you’re gonna leave like right now, today?
Deacon: Yeah. I think getting out of here asap is the smartest thing I can do.
Hope: Look, I’m not trying to force dad on you the way steffy and thomas were trying to put their parents back together.
Brooke: Good. Because that doesn’t end well for anybody.
[ Hope laughing ]
Hope: But mom, I just– I trust you to do what’s right for you. You know, you follow your heart and I respect that. I’m just saying, ridge isn’t the only man out there. And dad, I know, loves you a lot. More than he probably says.
Brooke: Deacon’s never been one to hide his feelings.
Hope: Look, I’m not saying you need a man in your life, I just– I just want you to be happy and I love you. Okay?
Brooke: Thank you, honey. I love you too.
Steffy: I called amelia. We’re gonna add some more security to the house.
Brooke: What’s going on?
Steffy: Um… sheila. She’s here. In L.A.
Finn: Steffy ran into her at il giardino.
Steffy: Literally. I spilled my drink on her. To attack you?
Steffy: No, no. When i realized who she was, she ran off. She was like in this disguise. And if she wasn’t wearing open-toed sandals, I wouldn’t have looked at her twice.
Hope: But because her missing toe–
Steffy: Yes. That’s what gave it away.
Finn: I just wish I would’ve followed my instincts sooner.
Steffy: Hey, you got chief baker to believe me. You convinced him that sheila’s death was a lie. You vowed to protect us and you did.
Finn: Well, they have to find her soon because every moment she’s out there, my family’s in danger. We need to protect each other, all right? And our children. Because this threat is still very much alive.
Sheila: I’m not going back to prison. I’m never going back there again. I won’t be hiding that long. I’ll be a free woman again. That day is coming. Soon.
