Steffy: I thought you had a long shift at the hospital?
Finn: I do, but I have a break between my rounds.
Steffy: So, you decided to come here instead of squeezing in a nap?
Finn: I wanted to see my beautiful wife.
Steffy: Gosh, I have such a great husband. I really do.
Finn: Hey, I’d pick you over an extra hour of sleep any day.
Steffy: Glad you did.
Finn: Are you okay though? You seem a little distracted. Am I interrupting?
[ Steffy sighs ]
Steffy: I’ve been working on the budget all morning, but… every time I try to concentrate, I just keep thinking about… sheila. Knowing that she’s out there, roaming the streets of los angeles and it’s all because of bill.
[ Phone chirps ]
Sheila: It is over.
Bill is the winner.
You are a loser.
I don’t want to see you again.
I don’t want you anywhere
near me ever again. Ever!
You’re gonna mess everything up
for me, deacon, so goodbye.
Sheila: Gotta forget it. I gotta forget.
Bill: There’s that look in your eyes again. It’s obvious who you’re thinking about.
Deacon: Oh, I’m sorry. It’s been nuts since I took over the joint. So, what do you say? One of my most loyal patrons, and did I mention beautiful and talented, to lend a hand with her party planning expertise? Please say yes.
Woman: I think I could, uh, I think I could make some contributions.
Deacon: Thank you. Thank you so much. A table anytime you need it, meals on the house, whatever you need.
Woman: Then we’ll definitely be in touch. I gotta grab this.
Woman: Giralda. I’ve been waiting for your call.
Deacon: Come on, sheila! Get over here.
Hope: Hey, dad.
Hope: Oh, the place looks great, as usual.
Deacon: Yeah, it’s coming along, right? So, how’s my girl?
Hope: Good, uh, but I– I wanted to see you.
Deacon: Yeah, what’s up?
Hope: Just wanted to give you a heads up about mom’S… date with hollis in case you haven’t heard.
Deacon: Yeah, I was talking to him earlier. It sounds like they had a nice time. Brooke him she’s not ready to start dating anyone yet.
Hope: So, you must feel relieved then? I mean, I assume you still have some feelings for mom and…
Deacon: Look, hope, I’m always gonna love brooke, but I think that ship’s sailed.
Hope: So you’re… actually ready to move on.
Hope: Wait, does this mean you have a new woman in your life?
Hope: Is there someone special you want to tell me about? A-ha. I see that twinkle in your eyes. Yep. I think there is someone.
Deacon: Well, I hate to break it to you but my smart, very well-intentioned daughter is wrong because the only commitment I have right now, present company excluded, is this restaurant.
Hope: Well, it’s kind of a bummer you don’t have time to date, but.. I’m very proud of you taking over this place.
Deacon: I’m glad that your old man can make you happy, make you proud. It means the world to me. I may need your help though because I am planning a grand opening party.
Hope: Oh, very cool.
Deacon: We’ll see. I mean, I’m praying it’s gonna be a success.
Hope: Dad, it will be.
Deacon: That depends on who’s here for the opening.
Sheila: I’m sorry. I know it seems like I’ve… been in another world lately. It’s annoying, but I just– I just can’t think of anything else.
Bill: You don’t have to say you’re sorry and you don’t have to pretend with me. I know you’re thinking about finn and that you miss him very much. I’m right, aren’t I?
Sheila: Yes. I can’t stop thinking about finn and hayes. Just wishing I could be a part of their lives.
Finn: Sheila’s been on my mind a lot too, regrettably.
Steffy: How can we forget about her when she’s roaming free to cause more harm?
Finn: It kills me that someone so dangerous isn’t behind bars. You know, and we had the chance to put her away, but what were we supposed to do? Our hands were tied. Bill threatened to lock taylor up for shooting him back in the day.
Steffy: Finn, we can’t accept this. We’re going to protect my mom at all costs, but… we have to find a way to put an end to sheila. The abcs of ckd
Hope: Please tell me you will be serving your signature pizza at this event.
Deacon: Macherto. That’s italian for “sure”. I picked that up. Of course we’re going to, that’s what’s gonna put us on the map.
Hope: Okay, good. Gosh, once this place blows up it’s going to be impossible to get a reservation here.
Deacon: That is probably very true, but not for you, honey. I will always have your table ready.
Hope: I got the best dad ever.
Deacon: That’s also true.
Hope: Thank you. Okay, so tell me, who is coming to this big launch event?
Deacon: I don’t know about big, I mean, it’s gonna be like a select group, you know, vips. You and liam, of course, and, um… I’m hoping brooke makes it, and I’m also hoping that maybe some key people from forrester creations.
Hope: Oh, well, I just so happen to be heading over there right now, so I will spread the word.
Deacon: Thank you. I appreciate that. Look, I– I didn’t want to… I didn’t want to say this right off or anything, but I– I just want to know, how you doing? Really?
[ Hope sighs ]
Hope: I’m trying. It’s just, it’S… hard to adjust to life without douglas. I don’t–
Deacon: Yeah. That’s gotta be really rough.
Hope: Yeah, but, um… there’s nothing we can do about it right now, so.
Deacon: Hey. He’ll come back.
Hope: And until then we have your big opening party to look forward to. I’m really happy for you, dad. You’re putting your stamp on this place.
Deacon: That’s the goal.
Hope: Well, I knew you had it in you. Look at you. Making positive changes in your life. Making your dreams come true. And hey. Now all we have to do is find you some hot girlfriend and then you really will have it all.
Deacon: You don’t give up. Where do you get that from?
[ Chuckles ]
Sheila: I lost out on all of finn’s life, every milestone, and when I had the opportunity to make things right–
Bill: I told you. You can’t change the past.
Sheila: But I blew it, bill. I put too much stress on the situation and I am never gonna be able to forgive myself for what i did at il giardino that night.
Bill: I really want you to hear me. This won’t be forever. I told you I would do whatever I could to bring you and finn together again.
Sheila: It just seems impossible given everything that’s happened.
Bill: Impossible is not a word I am remotely familiar with.
Finn: All right. How can we make this happen?
Steffy: I’m not sure yet, but we can’t just sit back and let bill and sheila blackmail us.
Finn: Well, we owe it to ourselves and to everyone to ensure she goes back to prison.
Steffy: We’re all on edge. Us, brooke, hope. And we’re always gonna be worried about sheila as long as she has her freedom.
Finn: She can’t control herself. As soon as her evil impulses kick in– she could be planning something as we speak.
Steffy: You know, I would go to the police right now and I would rat out that dirty judge bill bought. Tell them that we were forced not to testify, but I can’t put my mom at risk.
Steffy: Just gotta… I don’t know, we gotta figure out a way to open bill’s eyes somehow. See sheila for the monster that she is.
Finn: Bill is aware of every twisted crime she’s committed. Actually seems to turn him on.
Steffy: We can’t give up. There has to be an answer, something sheila won’t see coming. It’s time, finn. It’s time to get sheila out of our lives once and for all. Known as a passionate artist.
Sheila: What if… we just stayed like this. All day, all night pretending there was no one else?
Bill: I don’t know how I’m gonna turn myself away from you.
Sheila: Then don’T.
[ Phone sounds ]
Bill: Unfortunately, we’re gonna have to pick this up later. It’s the conference call I told you have to jump on.
Sheila: I just wish you were jumping on me.
[ Bill chuckles ] Again.
[ Phone sounds ]
[ Bill sighs ]
Sheila: That’s okay. There’s– there’s someplace else I need to be.
Bill: I am a very fortunate man.
Sheila: You know how to take care of me. You knew exactly what I needed. You gave me love, respect, freedom, your support. I am never gonna forget what you’ve done for me. Thank you.
Finn: Okay. Great, sounds like he’s stabilized. All right, call me after his mri. I want to discuss the results with him myself. Okay, thank you.
Steffy: You have to get back to the hospital?
Finn: The situation’s handled. Unlike sheila.
[ Sighs ]
Steffy: We’ll figure this out.
Finn: Oh, hey hope.
Hope: Um, thank you for texting me about dropping off douglas. I– I really appreciate you keeping me in the loop.
Steffy: Yeah, yeah, of course.
Hope: If you two were, I’ll just–
Steffy: No, no, no, we were just talking about finn’s birth mother. What a terrible injustice it is that she’s not rotting in prison.
Hope: It’s insane. All of us have to stay on high alert now.
Steffy: We’re not gonna live like this forever, worried when sheila’s gonna snap.
Finn: That day’s coming. She might be putting on her best behavior right now, but–
Steffy: She’s a psychopath. Everyone in their right mind knows that.
Finn: Everyone except bill.
Hope: It’s unbelievable how he or any person could be sympathetic toward her, let alone have feelings for her.
[ Knocking ]
Deacon: Hey. [Indistinct]
Sheila: No. I didn’t want anyone to see me. I– I really can’t risk being caught.
Deacon: Ditto, ditto, trust me. I just… I had to have you come. It’s important.
Sheila: What’s so important?
Deacon: I was thinking about what you said to me last time you were here. How I’m a loser, I’m just gonna screw things up for you. It hurt to hear you say that. I think because deep down that’s how I’ve always seen myself. Sheila, I thought we had something special. I– I know we had something special. And that’s why I asked you to come here… because I don’t believe any of it and I don’t think you do either. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease
Steffy: We’re not letting bill and sheila dictate our lives.
Hope: How would you be able to stop them?
Finn: Steffy and I haven’t quite worked that out yet.
Steffy: We’re determined to get control of the situation.
Hope: Well, that would be a relief for all our sakes.
Steffy: Okay, I– I don’t want to talk about sheila anymore. I really don’T. Did you bring any food? Do you have anything from, like, il giardino?
Hope: Sorry, it’s too early. The kitchen hasn’t opened yet.
Finn: I know that we’ve said this a thousand times, but we are eternally grateful for deacon and everything he did that horrible night.
Steffy: Yeah, we wouldn’t be alive if he hadn’t found us in the alley.
Hope: You know, I– I know my dad gets a bad rap, but he is a good man underneath it all, and– and he’s trying to make something of himself right now, he’s trying to build a legacy.
Finn: I mean, yeah, we’re wishing him the best with the restaurant.
Hope: It’s actually really exciting. Um, he is throwing a grand opening and I’ll be there, my mom, and I know it would mean a lot to him if you two were able to make it.
Steffy: Yeah, sure.
Finn: Yeah, sure, why not? I mean, we– we would love to support deacon.
Steffy: Yeah, it’s the least we can do. He literally saved our lives.
Hope: That’s great. He’s going to be thrilled to hear that.
Steffy: So, brooke’s gonna be there? Are you hoping that, uh, they get back together?
Hope: I maybe have floated that idea to my dad…
Steffy: What, he’s not interested?
Hope: He said that their time has come and gone.
Steffy: Wow, I never thought deacon would be over brooke.
Hope: Oh, same. But apparently he has finally given up.
Steffy: Is he interested in somebody else?
Hope: I asked my dad the same question, but he said right now he just has time for the restaurant.
Finn: That makes sense, it takes a lot to keep the business going.
Hope: Yeah, I mean, I hope one day he’s able to find the one. I know he’S… wanting a relationship, I just hope he finds a woman that is nice and stable, just… I don’t know, someone who grounds him.
Deacon: You know this isn’t my first barbecue. I know you said those nasty things to drive me away.
Sheila: Yeah. You know how bill feels about you. If he ever found out about our past–
Deacon: Sheila, I’d never rat you out. I’d never do that. You know how I feel about you.
Sheila: Then why do you insist I meet you here?
Deacon: There is so much good stuff happening with me, I just– I want you to be a part of it.
Sheila: That’s not possible. We both know that, for so many reasons.
Deacon: Sheila, I have poured myself into this business. It’s gotta be a success. I… I have finally found something that– that is fulfilling. You know, that I can– I can put myself into, I’ve discovered my passion after all these years.
Sheila: It is so good to see you lit up like this. I… I’m really happy for you.
Deacon: Thank you and– and… that means a lot. And what would really mean a lot is if you would come to the opening party. Sheila, I want you– no, I don’t want you there, I need you to be there.
Sheila: We just said how risky it was gonna be to be seen with one another.
Deacon: Sheila, this restaurant is, um… more than just a business venture for me. This is my chance to be somebody. This is my shot at the brass ring and I’m gonna grab it. And it’s happening because of you. Yeah.
Sheila: Me? Why me?
Deacon: I never expected you to come limping into my life and change it the way that you did– no, I’m serious. I’m the man that I am today because of you, a restaurant owner. Because you gave me the kick in the ass that I needed to go out there and do it. And I want to share this with you, I– I just want you to be at the opening, even if it’s just for a few minutes, then I can see you across the room. Just to know that you’re there. Please. Tell me that you’ll come to the grand opening.
