Deacon: You’re here. So I know you can get away from spencer if you want to.
Sheila: I can’t come to your grand opening, deacon.
Deacon: But you want to. No, what are you gonna do now? Are you gonna– you gonna put me down? You gonna tell me you don’t care? Because I know you do. Listen to me. Maybe I know you’re scared because you have feelings for me and you’re afraid if you give in to them you’re gonna lose your freedom. I’m not asking you for all that. All I want is for you to come to the grand opening. Please, tell me you’ll do it.
Wyatt: Look, dad, we’re not judging you. Okay? We’re just worried. We don’t understand what’s going on between you and sheila.
[ Phone ringing ] She doesn’t deserve your protection or your help or whatever it is that you’re– I’m not doing this right now.
Wyatt: It’s that negotiation that we were talking about.
Bill: Oh no, no, no. If it is that negotiation you are gonna do it. I want you to get that deal closed.
Liam: Dad, right now?
Bill: Yeah, right now, liam.
[ Phone ringing ]
Liam: Whatever, just do it.
Wyatt: Okay. Yeah.
Liam: Well, we’re not here about that anyway. What we’re here about is this threat that you keep making at steffy and finn. If they– if they testify against sheila then you tell the cops that taylor shot you? You– you’D… sheila belongs in jail. You could single-handedly put her there right now. But you have to drop this threat against taylor.
Taylor: Okay, so now that douglas is here, how are you and finn doing on a scale of one to I need a vacation?
Steffy: Yeah, it’s a– it’s a– a challenge, but… oh, thank you. Our main topic has… it’s been sheila. Oh, my god. Got it.
Taylor: Oh, honey. This is… it’s just all so stressful.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, it is. There’s that, and… douglas, as you mentioned, work, hope for the future isn’t doing well, and… finn. He’s– he’s been on call… a lot.
Taylor: I’m sorry. I am, this is– this is a lot for you to take on all at once, you know?
Steffy: I miss him. I miss our– our time together. And he hates knowing that I’m here while sheila’s out there, roaming free. Like, I just– I could strangle bill for putting us in this position, but it’s not gonna last. It’s not. I don’t know how yet. But I will see sheila carter behind bars.
Deacon: I’m not trying to put you on the spot.
[ Sighs ]
Sheila: You’re asking for the impossible.
Deacon: That’s your specialty. How many times did you ask me to take you for a night out? This is the biggest night in my life. This is my dream, sheila. And it’s happening because of you. I… I just want to share it with you.
Taylor: Sheila has always manipulated her way through survival. She doesn’t care who she hurts. But bill–
Steffy: Bill… bill has changed.
Taylor: I never would have thought that, you know, he and sheila would–
Steffy: I don’t give a damn why he is doing this, I just want it to stop.
Taylor: Yeah, but what if– what if, um, you know, they really are in love?
Steffy: If bill actually thinks he has a future with sheila, then he is more delusional than she is. The only thing she’s gonna bring to his life is misery. But the pain she’s brought to our family, that is gonna end. I’m gonna find a way to get sheila out of our lives once and for all. If you’re still having bladder leaks,
Steffy: Sheila thinks she’s won. But this is not over.
Taylor: But honey, you shouldn’t take the brunt of this on yourself. Sheila’s mere existence affects our entire family. Which is why… we all need to pull together right now.
[ Knocking on door ]
[ Sighs ]
Thomas: Hey, sis. Hey, mom.
Taylor: Hi, baby. Okay, I did this. Yes, I did. Do you remember when I told you guys to dig deep and find the love. Are you doing it? Yeah, I don’t think you are. No.
Taylor: See I– I can’t ground you, but I can be super annoying. Which is exactly what I’m gonna do. Come on. Our family has suffered so much and we’re all feeling the void. Right? Come on. It is time to fill it up, kids. We gotta do it. You don’t want this situation with douglas to pull you farther apart, do you? No, you don’T. So, come on. Let’s go, let’s do this.
Liam: You have a dangerous criminal living in your house and you’re alienating everybody who loves you just to keep her out of jail.
Bill: I didn’t allow you and wyatt to come over here and bash sheila. So let’s move on.
Liam: I would love to move on. But the fact of the matter is you keep this charade up, an entire–
Wyatt: Did you make any headway?
Liam: What do you think?
Wyatt: Look, dad, I don’t know what kind of crazy ideas sheila carter has put into your head. But they are wrong. That woman does nothing but lie and hurt people. That’s how she survives. Okay? The– there is no way that you can trust sheila carter.
Sheila: Haven’t I given you enough to worry about?
Deacon: Oh, is that why you left? Come on. It wasn’t all bad. That first night was pretty wild.
[ Giggling ]
Sheila: What you can remember of it.
Deacon: Trust me. I remember the gorgeous redhead who was making eyes at me at the bar and then followed me back to my place, showed up at my doorstep. I– I still cannot believe that I didn’t know it was you ’til the next day.
[ Laughing ]
Sheila: You nearly jumped out of your skin.
Deacon: Yeah, ’cause you scared the hell out of me. I mean, it’s funny now, but I mean, you know, it was life and death then.
> Sheila: If you were so frightened of me, why did you take me in?
Deacon: You know the answer to that. What’s your favorite part of a kit kat bar?
Liam: Dad, you’re just– you’re just putting your faith in the wrong person.
Bill: I don’t have to explain our relationship to you guys or anyone else.
Wyatt: Oh, you don’t have to explain your relationship to your own sons? How sheila carter became the most important person in your life?
Bill: She wants me and she accepts me for who I am.
Wyatt: For how long? And for what purpose? I don’t understand this. Look, I’m saying this because I love you. But no one can trust sheila carter.
Sheila: I stuck with you because I was in hiding.
Deacon: I think it’s because you couldn’t give it up.
Sheila: All this?
Deacon: Yeah. Everything that we shared here. Passion, connection. Sheila, there is something… very special about you. I don’t know. Maybe– maybe it’s knowing that you’re capable of anything. I’ve never been with a woman like you before.
[ Chuckling ]
Sheila: Well, I’m flattered.
Deacon: I mean it.
Sheila: I know you do, because it’s the same thing bill tells me.
[ Deacon retching ]
Deacon: Sorry, I just threw up in my mouth. Come on, stop it. Okay? Don’t be jealous. I’m– I’m touched. Really. All these beautiful memories. And how you say I inspired you to take over the restaurant. It’s really sweet that you want me at your grand opening. But we both know I– I just can’T.
Deacon: Because of spencer.
Sheila: Yes. Because of bill.
Taylor: Please don’t make me pull out the, uh, “you’re brother and sister and you will always have a responsibility to each other” speech.
Steffy: I’ve had to be responsible for both of us.
Taylor: All right, well, you still love each other very, very much despite everything that’s happened. So let’s do this. Talk it out.
Thomas: I tried. She wouldn’t listen.
Steffy: You mean I wouldn’t do what you wanted.
Taylor: Okay. Well, that’s a start.
Thomas: I wasn’t being unreasonable, mom.
Taylor: Don’t tell me. Tell your sister.
Thomas: Okay. Steph, um… I’m sorry. And I know you don’t want to hear that again. I went too far trying to get our parents back together. And that seems to be what I do. You know, I– I get hyper-focused on something. I don’t see how it affects everything else, and… I hurt people. I make mistakes. It really hurts that douglas was affected by that and now he’s here, living with you and finn. And that really hurts. I don’t like feeling disconnected from my son or from you. Feeling like I’ve… been exiled from the family. But I– I– I only have myself to blame. But… it’s also motivating because if I’m the one who messed everything up then I’m the person who can fix it. I can make things better. I, uh… I’ve been seeing a therapist. I’ve been working on myself. I really am trying to be better. I want to be better. I want to be… a better father… a better son… and a better brother. Now, look, I– I don’t have any right to ask this. But, steffy, I can’t do it on my own. I need you. So, please… please give me another chance. (Phyllis) oooh, hearts
Liam: Are you– are you hearing us, dad?
Wyatt: You don’t think sheila carter would betray you?
Bill: She won’T.
Wyatt: But if she did, she’d be gone, though, right?
Liam: Straight back to prison?
Sheila: I can’t give you what you want, deacon.
Deacon: I thought you moved on with bill so you’d be free to live your life, not be… locked up with a loser like me.
Sheila: I said those hurtful things to spare us both a lot of pain, and… possibly some jail time.
[ Both chuckle ]
Deacon: So what? What, so I should– I should thank you for insulting me?
Sheila: Well, we did like to play rough.
[ Mimicking whip crack ]
[ Both laughing ]
Sheila: Ah… I’m not denying it. We had some wonderful times together. And you really were my savior when I needed it. But it just can’t be that way anymore.
Deacon: Sheila, I’m not looking to screw this up for you. I mean, I’m– I’m not stupid. I know that if spencer caught us together he would send you right back to prison and I could not live with that. I just want you to be safe and happy.
Sheila: That’s what I want for you, too.
Deacon: Just make sure he’s good to you… because you gave up a lot to be with him.
Sheila: Yeah, I did. But hey, good luck with the opening.
Deacon: It’s not gonna be the same without you.
Taylor: Steffy, you’re up.
Steffy: What makes you think this time is gonna be any different?
Thomas: I deserve that.
Steffy: To be honest, I’m so disillusioned right now. What you did to mom and dad was terrible enough. But what you did to your own son, telling him to keep another secret for you? It’s like you haven’t changed. How am I supposed to believe you’re ready to do that now?
Thomas: I love my son. That’s– that’s why I went to court and how he chose to live here with you. And if I want that to change, then I have to change.
Steffy: Look, I know this is difficult for you and I’m not trying to cause you any pain. I don’t want you to suffer. And, believe it or not, mom is right. I do love you.
Thomas: I love you, too.
Steffy: Thomas, I spent my childhood looking up to you. But we’re adults now and we need to be responsible for ourselves and our actions.
Thomas: And I’m doing that.
Steffy: You’re trying to rebuild our faith in you that you have broken over and over again. Try to win back our trust. I don’t know how it’s ever gonna happen… how long this is gonna take, but, um… I lost my sister… and I don’t want to lose my brother. You need to do better. You said you want another chance? I’m willing to give it to you.
Thomas: Thank you, steff. You won’t regret it.
Taylor: No promises, thomas. Just keep doing the work.
Thomas: I will.
Taylor: You know, our family has been through so much. We– we fall… we break… we fail. But then we rise. We heal. We overcome. We always have and we always will. I will always believe in you, thomas. And you, steffy, always. And together, we, as a family, are a force to be reckoned with. No one can ever break this bond. We are the forresters. Come here.
