Steffy: Bill! Bill, oh, my god, thank god you’re here, you have to help tie– tie sheila up.
Finn: She was alive. We were right.
Bill: Yes, I know.
Brooke: I am trying not to be freaked out by it, but sheila is out there somewhere.
Taylor: Yeah, she is. You know what? I have a confession. I– I, um– I double check my locks every night.
Brooke: Me too.
Taylor: You know what? I– I don’t think she’d be stupid enough to come to one of our places. She’d be caught. She’d go to prison.
Brooke: Yeah. I mean, that has to happen regardless. There is no way she’s going to avoid being put back behind bars this time.
Katie: Mm! Oh, my gosh. Wow. That’s embarrassing. I can’t even stay dry inside.
[ Laughing ]
Carter: Thunder makes you jumpy, huh?
Katie: Uh, not usually. I guess I’m just a little bit more on the edge these days because of sheila. I’m glad that, uh, I came back here, the rain led us back here, and that I’m with you because I don’t think I would want to be alone in my house on a night like tonight.
Carter: Especially since– hey, sheila broke into your place before, huh?
Katie: Yes. Yes, she did. Which makes it official. I’m never going back there ever again.
Carter: Well, don’t worry. You got me. Not that you need protection.
Katie: Well, anyone would feel extra safe around you.
Brooke: You know, if sheila was going to make an appearance, I think it would have been on christmas. She was so moved last year when I convinced steffy to invite her. I was kind of surprised that she didn’t show up. Oh, thank god she didn’T. So how was your christmas? Over at steffy’s?
Taylor: It was wonderful. Steffy just wanted to do something very low-key, it was, you know, steffy, finn, li was there. Hayes. It was beautiful.
Taylor: Yeah. How about you? Was eric and donna’s party good?
Brooke: Oh, yeah. It was festive, as usual.
Taylor: Good. And how is eric? Was he– was he sad that ridge couldn’t make it?
Brooke: Uh, well, ridge showed up.
Taylor: What? You saw ridge on christmas?
Carter: Aw. That was sweet of will, checking in on his mom after reading about the storm.
Katie: Yeah. I have a feeling his friends are posting updates that make it seem a little bit worse than what it is.
[ Thunder crashing ] Oh! Gosh!
Carter: Worse than it is?
Katie: Yeah. Speaking of sweet, it was really nice of you to chat with him like that. I think he spoke with you, actually, longer than he spoke with me.
Carter: It’s not my fault we listen to the same podcast and you don’T.
Katie: That’s a fair point. Seriously, you’re– you’re really good with him. I can tell you’d be a great dad. You’re patient, and you’re caring, and understanding, and those are all essential parenting skills.
Steffy: Bill, what’s wrong with you?
Steffy: Help us.
Bill: There’s no reason to tie sheila up.
Finn: Well, I’m not holding on to her until the police get here.
Steffy: Yeah, we haven’t been able to call the police–
Bill: No one is calling the police. Sheila deserves a second chance.
Carter: Have you talked to bill since I picked you up the other night?
Katie: Oh, no, I haven’T. I feel– I feel bad. I probably should check in, but he’s just been so out of sorts lately. He’s wearing his sword necklace. He says he has to wear it to protect himself and I just– I just can’t, you know? I can’t save him from himself. It’s just– it’s too much. You want to know what else is too much? Me going on and on and on about bill. It’s your fault. It’s your fault because–
Carter: It’s my fault?
Katie: Yes, you’re– you’re too good a listener. But I’m sure you didn’t invite me to dinner so that I could rattle on about my ex.
Carter: No, I had other motives. One in particular.
Carter: I got something for you.
Carter: I wanted to give it to you the other day at eric’s, but I wanted to wait until we were alone.
Carter: Belated merry christmas, katie.
Taylor: Hold on a second. Hold on. You were with ridge on christmas?
Brooke: Yes, but no. No. I mean, I wasn’t with him with him. I’m holding true to our pact, taylor. Seriously.
Brooke: I am not going to cave.
Brooke: I’m not. Honestly. At this point in my life, I don’t feel like I need a relationship.
[ Sighs ]
Taylor: God, I– I am so proud of you.
Taylor: I– I’m proud of us.
[ Thunder clapping ]
Steffy: Second chance? Her?
Bill: We all make mistakes. We all have moments where we need some… some understanding and a little– little leniency.
Steffy: You know what she’s done?
Sheila: Yes, he does. He knows everything.
Steffy: What is– what is going on with you two?
Bill: Sheila’s become a part of my life.
Finn: Okay, enough of this. Okay? We’re calling the police. Now.
Bill: No one’s calling the police. And you won’t be pressing charges.
Finn: Are you insane? Of course we are, she nearly murdered us.
Bill: She’s your mother.
Sheila: You wouldn’t be able to live with yourself knowing that you put your own mother behind bars.
Finn: Shooting us and leaving us for dead? I’m pretty sure you put yourself there.
Sheila: That was a terrible, terrible accident.
Finn: Okay, stop it!
Steffy: You walked away from us. You pretended like it was a robbery. You call that an accident? I can’t believe you’re trying to give her a second chance. You’re defending her?
Bill: I am. Because nobody else will. And I understand what that feels like.
Sheila: We both know what it’s like to get that door slammed in your face over and over again, being told that you’re– you’re cruel, you’re untrustworthy, you’re not worth fighting for. Katie turned her back on bill. And brooke did, too. And that was just so wrong.
Bill: Despite all my efforts to… to be a better man, to prove myself worthy… neither one of them wants anything to do with me. They’re not the only ones. It started with you, steffy. So nobody cares about me. Nobody gives a damn whether or not I live or die.
Bill: This woman knows all about that.
Finn: Okay, but you– you helped my mom rescue me from her. You helped steffy and I reunite. You flew me on your plane to monte carlo. How did you go from that to whatever the hell this is?
Bill: What the hell this is, is me making sure that sheila remains free. Sweet pillows of softness!
[ Sighs ]
Brooke: When I think of all the times that I’ve been let down by ridge through the years…
Taylor: Oh, god. Time and time again.
Brooke: I guess you just grow accustomed to it. You know, at least I did.
Taylor: Me too.
Brooke: But you know what?
Brooke: I really do like this new perspective. I like this new version of me.
Taylor: I do, too. You know, I think we’re on to something here, brooke. Seeing the world in a whole new way.
Brooke: Yes, we are.
Katie: Wow, it’s, um… it’s beautiful.
Carter: I couldn’t resist, you know? Knowing your situation and considering you have the strongest, most caring heart of anyone I’ve ever known.
Katie: I love it. Truly, I do. It’s so pretty.
Katie: How does it look?
Steffy: Bill, what does sheila have on you?
Bill: I was alone for so long.
Bill: Did anyone care? Anyone at all?
Steffy: Bill, you lost your mind.
Bill: I have tried, steffy. I tried so hard to be good to you. To brooke. To katie. And none of you wants anything to do with me and– I can’t blame you. I have caused so much pain, right? Tears? I’ve lied. I have cheated. I’ve stabbed people in the back. I’ve caused so much hurt over the years.
Sheila: But– but who’S… who’s that one person? That isn’t ever going to blink an eye at the worst of the worst choices that you’ve made?
Bill: I’m moving on. I’m moving on with someone that I can’t hurt.
Steffy: Ugh. I don’t know what kind of sick, twisted relationship is developing here. And honestly, I don’t care. I don’T. Move on. Be with her, if that’s what you want. But know there will be bars between you because this woman is going to jail.
Bill: No, she’s not. You’re not going to allow it. I absolutely will. This woman traumatized my family. She targeted my mother and my grandmother. The crazy bitch tried to kill me. So I don’t give a damn what you say. This woman is going to jail. I am pressing charges and she’s going to suffer in there for the rest of her life. As someone living with type 2 diabetes,
Katie: Thank you. I love it.
Carter: Good. Now there’s one more thing I owe you.
Carter: I promised you a slow dance.
Taylor: You know, I wish stephanie were alive and she could hear you say, “I don’t need a man.”
[ Laughing ]
Brooke: Oh, gosh. I-I- don’t think she would believe it.
Brooke: And I don’t think she’d believe this. You and I bonding, coming to this realization at the same time.
Taylor: The realization that we have to love ourselves first. First and foremost, that’s the most important thing.
Brooke: It’s such an invaluable lesson. And I’m so glad that our girls got to see that. I mean, all those years of crying over ridge, what kind of an example were we then?
Taylor: Not a very good one.
Brooke: But we’re moving forward.
[ Laughing ]
Taylor: Yes. Yes, we are.
Brooke: And, uh, I’m just happy to be able to call you a friend. I mean, I can call you a friend, right?
Taylor: Yes. Come here.
Brooke: Oh, taylor. I just never thought I’d feel so good to be in your arms.
Taylor: Yeah, it feels really good to be in your arms, too.
[ Thunder cracks ]
Steffy: Bill, you’ve– you’ve clearly gone to a very, very dark place. You’re lonely. You’re hurt. But convincing yourself to take pity on this woman. No amount of loneliness can justify this. You know what she’s done. She shot her own son. He has a scar for the rest of his life. It is a reminder of her violence. You! You shot your own son. There’s no way we’re not going to the police.
Finn: Wait, what are you doing?
Sheila: Oh, my. Oh, my, looks like a gunshot wound, doesn’t it?
Finn: A– a what?
Sheila: You two aren’t the only ones who’ve been shot.
Steffy: You wouldn’T.
Sheila: He would.
Steffy: She knows?
Sheila: I know.
Finn: Steffy, what are they talking about?
Steffy: You wouldn’t dare.
Bill: Your mother shot me and I’ve kept it quiet all these years. You go to the police… I go to the police.
