Bill: You’re right, brooke. Everything you’re saying is absolutely right.
Brooke: You are a good man, bill. The way you love, just so passionate. So powerful. It belongs with somebody who deserves it. Not with someone like sheila, who’s gonna just drag you down into her darkness. You’re too good for that.
Deacon: Oh, thanks.
Paul: You haven’t slept in days.
Deacon: Make that weeks. But it’s gonna be worth it.
Paul: You nervous?
Deacon: A little bit, but I’m mostly excited. I’ve been waiting for a long time for a break like this.
Paul: Man, I’m so happy for you. I mean, to think that someday you would own this place, just can’t believe it.
Deacon: You and me both. Hey, honey.
Deacon: Your timing could not be any better.
Hope: Uh, why? What’s going on?
Deacon: You are looking at the new proprietor of this fine dining establishment. Welcome to deacon sharpe’s il giardino.
Hope: Okay. So how– how did this–
Deacon: So how did I go from cleaning the toilets to owning the joint? Um, well, I knew the previous owner was looking to get out, and so I put together some investors. I scraped together the money for the down payment, and I am gonna be working day and night to pay it off. But hope, I gotta tell you, I think it’s gonna be worth it. I feel like I finally found my niche after searching for so many years.
Hope: This is amazing.
Deacon: You know, a big part of this was making you proud.
Hope: Well, guess what? I am very proud.
Deacon: Hey, do you wanna get a bite? I know this new place under new management. I can get us a set table.
Hope: Yeah, it’s just–
Deacon: What’s up?
Hope: So I’m guessing you haven’t heard.
Deacon: What? I’ve been pretty out of the loop doing this 24/7.
Hope: So you don’t know about sheila?
Deacon: What’s there to know? She’s in prison. Probably gonna be locked up for the rest of her life.
Brooke: Bill, are you ready? Sheila is one phone call away from being back in prison and out of our lives.
Sheila: I’m not going to listen to–
Sheila: I meant everything that I said to you. I love you and I am willing to walk away from all of this if it’s costing you too much. You just say the word and I will walk away right now. But that has got to be your decision, not brooke’S. Hi, I’m lauren, I lost 67 pounds on golo.
Deacon: This is crazy, hope. I’m– wait, wait. So sheila’s free? I– so bill goes over to finn and steffy’s and– and what? He blackmails them so that they don’t press charges or testify? I–
Hope: Well, finn and steffy are pretty certain that bill bribed the judge to drop the charges.
Deacon: That’s unbelievable.
Hope: Well, yeah. Tell me about it. We keep underestimating sheila. I mean, just when we think she’s been put away once and for all she just–
Deacon: Yeah. This doesn’t make any sense though. I mean, bill hates sheila.
Hope: Well, not anymore. Dad, like I said, something in bill has changed and so many people have tried to get through to him, but it’s just, it’s like he’s lost.
Deacon: Yeah. Billionaire problems. That’s rough.
Hope: Well, money can’t buy you love.
Deacon: I’d like to put that theory to the test.
Deacon: Look, I’m sorry. I’m just having a tough time wrapping my head around spencer having any emotions other than arrogance and chronic jackass-ery.
Hope: Well, that being said, he has burned pretty much every bridge. So he was alone, probably terrified. And that made him vulnerable to sheila.
Deacon: Yeah, but why? I mean, like, what’s the angle here? I’m not getting it. What does bill being sad have to do with working with sheila?
Hope: Oh, I don’t think he’s working with her dad.
Deacon: That’s exactly what I’m saying. Then what–
Hope: He’s protecting her because he cares about her.
Deacon: Stop. Don’t say it.
Hope: Bill and sheila are together.
Sheila: Look at me. Don’t look at her. They all wanna change you, bill. They see you as a potential, a fixer upper. I look at you and I see the man I’ve been waiting for my entire life.
Brooke: You can try all you want, sheila, but deep down bill knows this isn’t what he wants. Bill, she shot steffy. The mother of your grandchild. She shot me. She shot her own son for god’s sake.
Sheila: That was an accident.
Brooke: An accident? Did you call 9-1-1? No, you pulled the trigger and you ran.
Sheila: Please, don’t let her come between us. Stop it.
Brooke: There is no “us.” Bill, as long as sheila is out of prison and running free on the streets, she’s gonna be a danger to you, to your family, to all of us. Is that what you really want? I– I don’t know what she did to get to you, but you have to listen to me. You have to trust me.
Bill: You’re right, brooke. Everything you’re saying is right.
Brooke: Oh, thank god. I knew you’d come to your senses.
Bill: I can’t argue with any of it. Sheila being here doesn’t make sense.
Brooke: Okay. Okay. Well, well then let’s– let’s do this.
Bill: But it’s what I want. It’s what I need. Did you know, some ordinary cold medicines can raise your blood pressure?
Deacon: Are you– are you sure that finn and steffy didn’t get this wrong somehow? Because I’m just not seeing it. I mean, sheila and bill together? Come on.
Hope: Well, steffy and finn confirmed it. Liam and wyatt confirmed it. Aunt katie too. I mean, they’ve all seen them together and it does get worse.
Deacon: How the hell could this get any worse?
Hope: They claim to love each other.
Deacon: Love? H– how is this even possible?
Hope: I don’t know. I think bill was down and out and sheila capitalized on it.
Deacon: When did this start? How did this even happen? How long has it been going on?
Hope: I don’t– I don’t know. I– we are totally and completely in the dark about all this. All I know is that liam is very, very concerned about his father. And frankly, we all are.
Deacon: But you think that sheila’s just using bill, right?
Hope: Well, of course. I mean, I don’t think someone like sheila is even capable of love. I mean, any sane person could see that. And that’s how we know bill isn’t okay right now. I mean, what kind of person would have real feelings for some
Brooke: You want her, bill? You need her? How can you say that knowing the danger we’re all in?
Bill: Sheila won’t be a threat.
Brooke: Won’t be a threat? She will always be a threat. Think of everything that she’s done to us. Think about taylor, steffy, finn, hayes. Think about your grandchildren, kelly and beth, your son. My god! We’re all a family, bill, and she’s a danger to all of us as long as she’s roaming free. I don’t know what you said or what you did to get into his head, but my god, bill, she is using you.
Sheila: That is enough. Bill is not a man that can be manipulated, not by me, and most definitely not by you.
Brooke: We loved each other, bill. I am just looking out for you. You have to know that. Please, just listen to me.
Sheila: No, you know what? You listen to him.
Brooke: Shut up! Shut up! Just let bill speak for once.
Sheila: He wants me to speak for him.
Brooke: Oh, god. For the first time, he has somebody that understands him and truly appreciates him. Something that you and your sister could never do.
Brooke: My god. This is it, bill? This is what you call love? This isn’t love. Can’t you see what she’s doing? Please just open your eyes. She’s a danger to everybody.
Sheila: Advice on love? Are you really that arrogant? And why would bill listen to anything that you have to say about love, brooke? A woman who allowed a man to bounce back and forth between you and another for years. A woman that had an affair and slept with and had a daughter by her grown daughter’s husband. You make me sick. All of you people, you know, you throw stones from your glass pedestals thinking that you’re better than all of us.
Brooke: You nearly killed your own son, sheila.
Sheila: Yeah. And taylor nearly killed the man that you say you loved. What about her? Did she pay for her crimes? The hypocrisy is just sickening to me. And that is what bill has finally seen. Because unlike you and katie, I am never gonna turn my back on him. I am never going to leave him alone. He finally found someone that wears her flaws proudly and I am not gonna call him a monster for his. You can’t stand this, can you? Seeing that he needs me and that he loves me. But you know what? It’s the truth. So you just better learn to accept it. Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.
Deacon: I’m just trying to wrap my head around this. Bill and sheila in a relationship?
Hope: Yeah. None of us could really believe it. I mean, the place bill has spiraled into must be pretty dark if he thinks he’s in love with sheila.
Deacon: I mean darker than usual? Sure this isn’t just bill being bill?
Hope: I mean, bill has done some terrible questionable things, but for him to think that he has feelings for sheila after everything that she has done? I mean, you know what? Dad, I’m– I’m actually– I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t be talking about this right now. I should– I should be celebrating your new place with you and not talking about sheila.
Deacon: Listen, I’m glad you came here and got me caught up. Believe me. Um, hey, I’ll tell you what, why don’t you come here tonight for dinner, okay? We can toast then.
Hope: I would love that. Congratulations again, dad. I am very, very, very proud of you.
Deacon: Thank you.
Hope: All right, I gotta go.
Hope: And dad?
Hope: I know you and sheila were close at one time. So if she calls, hang up the phone.
Deacon: Don’t worry about me. I know to handle sheila.
You haven’t been listening.
I’m a survivor.
Yes, I’ve had ups and downs
and there have been
but I– I– I truly believe
people get what they deserve.
I deserve another chance.
The best is yet to come
so just stay tuned.
I’ve said it before
and I’ll say it again.
You have not seen
the last of sheila carter.
Deacon: Son of a bitch. You did it, sheila. You really did it.
Sheila: I think you need to leave, brooke. You’re upsetting bill.
Brooke: I’ve really never been this worried about you, bill. Are you gonna let sheila do this? Really? You’re gonna let her kick me out of your home? You’re gonna let her speak for you? My god, bill! Do you have anything to say for yourself?
Bill: There is A… deep, painful emptiness inside of me. I loved you. There was nothing I wouldn’t have done for you, for your sister. Katie and I have a family. Family that means everything to me. You mean everything to me. I put my heart on the line for you over and over and over again. For katie. You trampled on it.
Brooke: Bill, bill–
Sheila: No, just let him finish.
Bill: You walked out on me. You and katie, you abandoned me and that hurt. I have feelings and I have needs.
Brooke: Right. Right, you have needs. Yeah. This is what you need, sheila.
Bill: Yes. Yes. Sheila is what I need.
Sheila: I think you’ve heard enough, okay? You understand why I’m here. Because I understand him. I accept him, I support him and I love him.
Brooke: Okay. I can’t believe this is happening. But you know what, bill? I’m not gonna stop until I am able to get through to you. Mark my words. And I am not gonna stop ’til you are behind bars rotting in prison where you belong. You hear me, sheila? Rotting in prison!
