Taylor: Steffy, hey. What is going on? I– I woke up to– to security and– and a text from you.
Steffy: Yeah. I– I’m so sorry, I should’ve called you, but yesterday, I was just so shaken up.
Taylor: What is, baby? Tell me. I’m here.
Steffy: It’s a lot.
Carter: Hey, you said it’s an emergency?
Steffy: Yes, it is.
Carter: What is?
Steffy: Look, I’m telling you this, not only that you’re our coo, but you’re also a member of the family and you… you might be targeted.
Steffy: Yes. Sheila. She’s here in los angeles.
Carter: Okay, steffy. I know you and finn have your theory.
Steffy: No, no. It’s not a theory, carter. I saw her with my own eyes.
Carter: You saw sheila?
Taylor: Wh– she’s alive?
Steffy: Sheila carter is alive.
Brooke: Just when I felt like we could breathe.
Katie: Sheila shows up.
Brooke: I was so relived when they said that she was gone.
Katie: I mean, we all were. I mean, they’re going to find her. They have to.
Brooke: Just to think that she’s out there somewhere. I don’t want to think about sheila. Let’s talk about you. You said you were worried about bill.
Katie: Yeah, I am. He just seems so lost and angry. I’m just– I’m worried that he’s slipping back into his old ways.
Brooke: Sorry to hear that. I mean, when he came over to my house, when ridge and taylor were getting married.
Katie: Oh, you mean when you turned him down and he immediately gave me the same “I need you” pitch?
Brooke: That was really strange. I mean, that was so unlike bill. I can understand why you’re moving on. Who would ever even entertain being with him after that?
Katie: Well, I guess years of pushing people away makes for a lonely existence.
Brooke: Well, he has his sons.
Katie: Yeah, but will’s at school. Wyatt and liam have their own lives.
Katie: He’s will’s dad and I will always care about him, but that’s kind of as far as it goes these days. I think there’s always this piece of me that really held onto the hope that things might work out, but not so much anymore. You know what? Life is too short. It is too short to waste time being unhappy.
Brooke: Are you okay?
Katie: Yeah. Yes. It’s just– it is my… my follow up for my annual cardiology check up.
Brooke: You do that always in the spring. I asked you about it, you said you’re okay.
Katie: I am. I’m fine. Been fine. You know, it’s just– it was so busy. Will being at school and hope’s fashion show and just, you know, a million other things.
Brooke: Mm. Is that really why? Or were you scared to go?
Taylor: I can’t believe this. Are– are you okay? Did she try to come after you?
Steffy: No. No, she had on some kind of wig and a mask.
Carter: A mask? Okay, I thought it was farfetched when you told us she cut off her toe and faked her death, but how is this real?
Taylor: Because she will go to any length for her own survival.
Steffy: Including shooting me and her own son.
Carter: How did you find her?
Steffy: I accidentally bumped into her at il giardino.
Carter: Wait, wait. She went back to the scene of the crime?
Steffy: Yes. But she was in this disguise. And I looked at her feet and I noticed that she was missing a toe and when I locked eyes with her, I realized it was sheila, but I was so stunned and in the moment that she ended up taking off. And then, we called the police and they said that they caught some footage of her nearby the restaurant. Forensic confirmed it was her with facial recognition. Underneath that disguise, it was sheila. The monster we all know and fear.
Katie: To be honest, I really don’t wanna talk about this right now.
Katie: I– you know what? I’m fine. I am. I’m going to this checkup, I can handle whatever the doctor says. And I– I don’t wanna be harsh, it’s just that these– these things just bring up a lot for me.
Brooke: I understand. I’ll go with you.
Katie: No, no. I’m fine.
Katie: No, really. I’m okay. It’s not my first rodeo. I can do this on my own.
Brooke: You don’t have to. I know you. You’re worried and you’re stressed out and I wanna be there for you.
Katie: You are. You always are. You and donna both. You’re always there for me, it’s just… these things, every year, it just brings everything to the surface and I feel like– like it was yesterday almost where I was laying in that– that hospital room and everyone was surrounding me and hoping that I would survive and what storm did. You know, what he gave me so that I could live and I have. I have lived. I have this amazing career, I have this amazing son. You know, I… my brother’s heart is beating inside of me and it’s a miracle. It’s a miracle. But we all know that I’m living on borrowed time. We really had our hands full
Carter: So, sheila’s been here this whole time, running around in a wig and a mask?
Taylor: And I can’t believe no one recognized her. Wigs always look so fake. I mean, she could’ve been anywhere. She could’ve hurt one of us.
Steffy: Or hayes.
Taylor: Oh, steffy.
Steffy: We had our guards down because we thought sheila was dead.
Carter: Okay, so you said the forensic team were able to tell she was wearing a disguise.
Steffy: Baker confirmed it. Showed us side-by-side imaging. 98% match when comparing her bone structure and iris scans to her mug shot.
Taylor: Honey, you know, I’m so glad that you and finn went forward with this hunch about her, but please tell me the police have leads.
Steffy: Well, they found some footage of her going into a car and we were able to pull the license plate number.
Carter: That’s huge.
Steffy: Yeah, it is. We were with baker when he got a call from an officer and he said that he found that car. And then, he put his sirens on and that’s when sheila fled. It was a car chase and somehow, she ended up escaping.
Taylor: Oh, my god. She got away, of course.
Steffy: I don’t know. She just– she hopped the parkway. We thought we had her, but we didn’T.
Carter: So, what do we do now?
Steffy: We have to stay vigilant. Sheila’s out there somewhere, but the police think that she’s gonna stay in a certain radius, west of beverly hills.
Taylor: Great, which is where most of us live.
Carter: Why? I mean, she breaks out of prison, she fakes her death, she escapes the cops, why is she still here? Why is she still in L.A.?
Steffy: Because she’s obsessed with my family, but that is her weakness. I mean, she is an idiot, staying her in los angeles because we are going to find her and when we do, we are going to put her behind bars for the rest of her miserable life.
Brooke: May I?
Brooke: Storm gave you the ultimate gift: His heart. He loves you so much. I’m sure he’s looking down on you right now, just so proud of you, just like we all are. You bring so much joy and so much light into the world. I’m just sorry you had to go through all of this.
Katie: I’m not– I’m not dwelling on it. I’m really not. I mean, you know what? This is going to be an amazing holiday. I’m gonna go to eric’s and I’m going to spend christmas with my sisters and with all my friends and that’s what I’m gonna focus on. Just being with the people I love and the people who– who make me feel loved and make me feel good. I just need to get this doctor’s appointment out of the way.
Brooke: Okay. I’m going with you.
Katie: No, no you’re not. I just– I really wanna just do this by myself.
Katie: No, brooke.
Brooke: Oh. I just love you so much, you know that? And I don’t know what I did to deserve someone like you. You’re just so loving and thoughtful in my life, but I really am grateful. I am. You’re a very special person. I knew that since the day you were born. I did. And you deserve to live and you will. I’m sholeh and I lost 75 pounds with golo.
Brooke: Hey, carter.
Carter: Have you seen katie? She wasn’t in her office and she’s not answering her phone.
Brooke: She’s probably still at her doctor’s appointment.
Carter: Doctor’s appointment?
Brooke: Oh, I’m sorry. I mean, she didn’t tell you? I thought she would have because you guys have been getting so close.
Carter: No, she didn’t say anything at all. What kind of an appointment is it?
Brooke: It’s her annual regarding her heart transplant.
Carter: Is she okay?
Brooke: Honestly? No. I mean, she’s just scared. She’s never sure how the test results are gonna come back. I wanted to go with her, but she insisted on going alone.
Carter: Well, she shouldn’t be by herself.
Brooke: I agree.
[ Katie sighing ]
Nurse: Hello, ms. Logan. I’m dr. Buckingham’s nurse. I’m so sorry to keep you waiting. Dr. Buckingham’s running behind. She’ll be with you as soon as he can.
Katie: Thank you.
Taylor: Hey, is everything okay?
Steffy: Yeah, just checking in on finn.
Taylor: God, I can’t imagine what he must be going through right now.
Steffy: He’s trying to stay strong for the kids and me. I mean, not in a million years would he think that his mother is some sort of murderous psychopath.
Taylor: I know, honey. God, I just– you know what? This is all going to be over soon, it is.
Steffy: I know. Sheila will get caught. She will. I just– I don’t want to think about her right now. I just need a moment.
Taylor: Yes, okay. Let’s not– let’s not talk about it.
Steffy: There is something I wanna tell you. Like, you know how much I wanted you and dad back together, but not at the cost of your own self-worth.
Taylor: I know. Look, your dad and I will always love each other, but it’s– it’s– it feels really good just to let go, you know?
Steffy: You and brooke on the same side. I never thought I’d see the day.
Steffy: I wonder what’s going through dad’s mind.
Taylor: Oh, when we told him, he– he, you know, he– he played it cool, you know? But you could tell he was not ready for it at all. Steffy, it felt so good. He did apologize to us for– for hurting both of us and for not being honest, but, you know, it’s um– you know, I’ll– I’ll always love your dad, I really will, but it was– it was good to love myself more, you know? And brooke and i both agreed that it’s time for us to be role models, you know? To our family. To you, to hope, to our grandkids.
Steffy: You’ve always been a great role model, mom. Come on.
Taylor: Well, thank you. I mean, I definitely made my fair share of mistakes.
Steffy: Okay, stop. Please stop. Look, you can’t be hard on yourself. I mean, I was the one who pushed you towards dad, wanted you two to reunite, but I’m not gonna do that anymore. I really need to focus on my husband and my kids and not your relationship, so I– I am so sorry.
Taylor: Oh, god, honey. Please don’t apologize. Seriously. You just wanted to see your parents together. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Steffy: What about the wedding? I feel like I let you down when I objected.
Taylor: Nope. You told the truth. That’s all you did.
Steffy: Yeah, but it wasn’t mine to tell. Maybe I should’ve waited for you to tell dad about thomas when you thought the time was right. Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.
Steffy: Look, I know what you’re gonna say, that it wasn’t my fault.
Steffy: I have to tell you, I am really, really proud of you for standing up for yourself. And I’m kind of proud of brooke too, believe it or not.
Taylor: Yes, yes, yes. And steffy, you did the right thing. I mean, I– I couldn’t do it at the time, you know? I admire you and you are everything a mother could ever want in a daughter.
Taylor: I love you so much, steffy.
Steffy: I love you too. Hey, we’re in this together. And there is nothing I wouldn’t do for you. Nothing.
Brooke: You listen to me. You can be angry, you can be mad, you can feel robbed or you can feel like this is a second lease on life. It is your choice. Do you really want to live with all of that negativity? Do you? Or do you wanna embrace life and live it to the fullest?
[ Door opening ]
Katie: Carter, what, uh… what are you doing here?
Carter: I spoke to brooke and she told me about your appointment.
[ Katie sighing ]
Katie: You didn’t have to come. I– I’m a big girl. I know what I’m walking into every time I’m in a doctor’s office. I– I understand the reality of my situation, that’s what I told brooke.
[ Katie sighing ] See? That. That’s what I don’t want. I don’t want you feeling sorry for me. I can do this alone. I’ve been doing this alone for a long time.
Carter: I don’t feel sorry for you. I’m in awe of you. You have so much courage, so much strength and i understand you’ve been going at it alone for a while now and it breaks my heart. You’ve given so much to everyone else, let me give to you. Let me be there for you. You can lean on me. I won’t break.
Grace: I am so sorry to keep you waiting. Um…
Katie: It’s okay. That’s all right. We understand.
Carter: Dr. Buckingham.
Katie: Um, carter’s just here for support. I hope that’s not a problem.
Grace: Of course not. Paris has moved on and so have I.
Katie: Uh, do you have my test results?
Grace: Yes, I do.
Katie: Go ahead, doctor. Tell me what my results say. . . . . .
