Steffy: Hmm. You have no idea how much I needed this.
Finn: Actually, I think I do. In fact, I will hold you as long as you need. I’ll hold you until this entire nightmare’s over.
Steffy: Will it be? Or is sheila gonna be in our lives forever?
Finn: Well, sheila’s in custody, right? Maybe we’ll luck out.
Steffy: You heard bill what he’ll do if she doesn’t get released.
Finn: Would he, though? After all this time, he would come forward about what your mom did and turn her in.
Steffy: He’s determined to help sheila resorting to blackmail. I mean, there are so many women he could choose from, women who actually add to his life, fulfill him. And who does he turn to? Sheila. Sheila carter.
Sheila: Are you sure it’s safe to talk?
Bill: I have taken care of everything, but nothing is guaranteed. So I wanna err on the side of caution. Keep your voice down and keep your distance.
Sheila: Yeah. But if we have this room to ourselves.
Bill: That’s the very opposite of what I just said. And it makes me wonder if you’re trying to avoid an answer.
Bill: I need to know if this is real.
Sheila: I can’t believe you even feel you have to ask that.
Bill: I have felt like this before, only to be let down. I’ll not be used. Is that what you’re doing, sheila? Are you using me?
[ Bag zipping ]
[ Door opens ]
Katie: Oh, my.
[ Laughing ]
Carter: Yeah. I forgot to lock that again.
Katie: Ah, and let me guess, you were working out again?
Carter: Guilty as charged.
Katie: Oh, oh, hang on, hang on. Before you button up, there’s something you need to do first.
Carter: Somebody’s in a good mood.
Katie: Well, how can I help but in a good mood when I walk in on this?
[ Carter chuckles ]
Carter: I’m sure it’s more than that. Your visit with bill, it went well?
Katie: Okay, hang on a second. So I am here in your handsome arms, and you wanna talk about bill?
Carter: Not if you don’t want to.
Katie: Hmm. Well, my visit did go well. Yeah. I just can’t get over it. Sheila finally captured, and that’s all because of bill. He’s really a hero.
Steffy: If we give in, if we trade sheila’s freedom for my mother’s, we’re endangering all of us. Why can’t bill see that?
Finn: He can’t see anything, steffy. Sheila’s got some sort of emotional hold on him.
Steffy: And that is a truly frightening thought to know that bill has some like sick crush on a psychopath. What do we do, finn? What do we do? Sheila cannot be released. But if bill is serious about threatening my mom, I think our– our hands are tied. I don’t know.
Taylor: Okay. I have one question. One very important question. Who is throwing the party? Me or you?
Steffy: Ah, party? What, what, what, what party?
Taylor: Come on. I can’t be the only one that wants to celebrate. Sheila’s finally behind bars.
Sheila: Am I using you? If you mean by using, wrapping myself in your incredibly strong arms and not wanting you to let go. Connecting with someone in a way I’ve never connected with anyone like that my entire life. I’ve– I thought you felt the same way. That you were enjoying every minute of it.
Katie: You know what’s sad? When bill found out that I was concerned about him, it– he seemed surprised.
Carter: Did he?
Carter: Well, knowing bill he had something sarcastic to say.
Katie: I– that’s just it. I mean, he has, shall we say, a big personality, and none of that was there. That bluster. It was like he was so vulnerable. Something that I’ve rarely seen. Something’s been off with him for a while lately.
Carter: Well, it’s a good thing he wasn’t the least bit off when sheila came knocking on his door. We all owe bill our gratitude, and now we can focus on other things. Better things.
Katie: Mm. Much better things.
Taylor: [ Chuckles ] Steffy, you should have heard me when I got your text that sheila had finally been arrested. I screamed, “yes!” Right in the middle of my colleague’s speech. Now he won’t stop talking to me about alternative modalities for anxiety.
Steffy: How was the conference?
Taylor: It was great. Sold out. Thank you. That– I don’t wanna talk about that. I wanna hear about how everything went down. So– so wait. Bill is the one that found sheila and turned her in?
Finn: Yeah. It was bill. He’s responsible for all this.
Taylor: Wow. Our family is safe again because of bill spencer.
Sheila: Look, we’re gonna have many more nights together in front of the fireplace. Just get me out of here. Please, just take me back home.
Bill: Home? You really think this can work, the two of us?
Sheila: Well, given the way things have gone the last few weeks, I’d say yes.
Bill: Why did you follow me that night?
Sheila: From el giardino? I– I don’t know. I saw you sitting at the bar by yourself, staring off, and you just looked so lonely. And it intrigued me. I’ll be honest, I was bored. I was bored. My situation being alone and following you, well, that was going to be an adventure. The all-powerful rich, mighty bill spencer, where was he heading off to?
Bill: Not what you expected, I’m sure.
Sheila: No, it definitely wasn’T. I never expected you to walk down the beach and plop yourself down in the sand. And I knew that approaching you would be a risk. But I don’t know, there was just– there was something that said I had to take that chance.
Bill: We talked until the sun came up.
Sheila: And you could have called the police. You could have easily overpowered me. Turned me in. But you didn’T. And I– I still, still can’t believe that.
Bill: I can’t either. There was something about the desperation in your voice, the loneliness in your eyes. That night, we connected in a way. Well, like you said, in a way that I’ve never connected with anyone. My god, what does that say about me?
Sheila: That says you’re tired of faking who you are and that you’ve been with the wrong women. You’ve been with good girls most of your life. Bill, good girls who didn’t truly understand you. They wanted to change you. Wanted to make you more like them. You’re not one of them, bill. Neither one of us are. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition.
Carter: You know, the best part of all of this?
Katie: All of what?
Carter: Sheila being arrested.
Katie: We no longer have to live in danger.
Carter: Yeah. Yes. But I was going to say your gorgeous smile.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Carter: I like seeing you happy.
Katie: I like being happy. It definitely feels like there’s a weight lifted. With sheila in custody, we can concentrate on better things on the future and all those wonderful moments yet to come.
Sheila: Other women want to change you. They wanna tame you and turn you into a weaker version of your true self. But not me. I know there’s nothing wrong with you. I understand you. The core, just like you do me.
Bill: Steffy came to see me.
Sheila: Did she?
Bill: She asked a lot of questions. Questions I’m not sure I even have the answers to. Katie as well. She called me a hero.
Sheila: That’s exactly what you are. You’re my hero. Oh, come on, bill. Please tell me you are not wavering because of something a logan has said.
Bill: I am putting everything on the line for you. If we pull this off, I lose everyone. My kids will hate me. Katie, brooke. I say goodbye to everyone in my life.
Sheila: Yes. And you say hello to someone who understands you.
Bill: Is this real?
Sheila: I– I know that this seems sudden, but I think I have more than shown you how I feel.
Bill: You’re talking about a dance with the devil. If it’s real, it will be an unforgettable ride. If it’s not, I know you, sheila carter.
Taylor: What a way to kick off the new year, huh? Sheila getting caught. It has to be a good omen, right? I am so optimistic right now about my future. I’m back in la, making up for lost time with my grandkids. My– my career is booming. And you know what else? I have a new friend, brooke freaking logan. After everything we’ve been through, I think this is gonna be my best year yet.
[ Knock on the door ]
Taylor: I’ll get it.
Finn: Look, she’s right. Okay? This will be her best year.
Steffy: From inside a cell. We can’t let that happen. We can’t give in to bill’s blackmail.
Taylor: Chief baker, hi.
Chief baker: Dr. Hayes. How are you?
Taylor: You know what? I am excellent. This news about sheila.
Chief baker: It’s about time, right?
Chief baker: May I?
Taylor: Yes, please. Come on in.
[ Door closes ]
Chief baker: Hello, steffy.
Chief baker: Finn.
Finn: Hey, chief baker.
Chief baker: As happy as we all are, capturing sheila was really just step one. There’s a whole lot of work to be done before prison becomes her permanent address.
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, I understand that there’s gonna be a hearing, but we all know what the outcome’s gonna be.
Chief baker: Well, that’s why I’m here, in fact, to review your statements, make sure everything is in order for trial.
Bill: If you prosecute
sheila, she won’t be
the only one behind bars.
If sheila goes to jail,
taylor goes to jail.
Taylor: Steffy and finn will do whatever’s necessary to put sheila carter in prison. My asthma felt anything but normal.
Chief baker: I just wanted to reiterate how important your testimony is going to be.
Steffy: I want sheila to pay for what she did.
Finn: There’s no doubt she belongs in prison.
Taylor: Yeah. And stephanie and finn will do whatever they need to do to cooperate. And we all will. Everyone in our family wants to make sure sheila never walks free again.
Chief baker: Exactly what I wanted to hear. Well, thank you all. I will be in touch.
Finn: I’ll show you out.
Taylor: Bye. Oh, my gosh. Sheila’s arraignment can’t come soon enough. She’s gonna be locked up forever.
Steffy: I really, I really don’t wanna talk about sheila right now, mom.
Taylor: Hey. What’s going on?
Steffy: Oh god. There is just so much to be thankful for. So much joy around us, and I think that’s– that’s what we need to focus on, okay?
Taylor: Okay. Okay. Yes. There is so much good. You can focus on your amazing husband and your beautiful kids.
Steffy: And you, my mother. I am just so– um, I’m so proud of you. The woman that you are. You deserve to be happy. You deserve the brightest future imaginable. You said this might be your best year yet. And I want you to know that I will do everything I can to make that happen, okay?
Taylor: I– I love you so much, baby. Thank you.
Sheila: I know why you’re questioning this, why you’re protecting yourself, and it has nothing to do with me. Has to do with what you’ve been through in your past with those bitch logans that put– okay. I– I’m sorry. It’s just that they’ve– they’ve always tried to change you, and that’s why you’re having a hard time understanding what we have together here. They don’t appreciate you. They never did. Not the way that I do. They couldn’t possibly. Neither one of them would’ve ever walked out on you if they did. And that’s something I will never do to you. No, not with the connection that I– I have with you. Connection that I have been looking for my whole life. Someone who– who can handle me and stand up for me. And I know that you’ve been looking for that too.
Bill: Looking? I’m thinking that person didn’t exist.
Sheila: No, I’m here. I’m right here. If you’re there for me, I will be there for you, and I will be a powerful force behind you. Can’t you see it? Bill, the– the possibilities, the two of us together, there is nothing that we can’t do. I can already feel it. I am so ready to love you the way you need, the way no other woman has. But you’ve gotta believe me.
Bill: I wanna believe in your feelings for me. That you’re telling me the truth.
Sheila: I promise you, I am.
