[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: Are you finished? Is there– is there anything else that you’d like to blame me for?

Taylor: No, you’re the one that’s finished. In every sense of the word. You’re locked up here, cut off from anyone you ever claimed to care about. Forever.

Sheila: Because of you. Because of what you did, bill. Using me. Oh, the way that you did. I never should’ve trusted you.

Bill: But you did. You did. Which, in some ways, still amazes me. You brought me into your dark, toxic world. God, I sacrificed so much and I would’ve sacrificed even more for the sake of my family, my loved ones, the next generation so you wouldn’t be a threat to them and now you’re not. You will die in prison alone and unloved, the two things you fear most. They are your fate now. Your inescapable fate.

[ Katie sighing ]

Katie: I’m not quite sure how to answer that question.

Carter: It’s complicated. I know. We thought bill lost his mind, was in love with sheila, when really he was doing this big heroic thing, protecting all of us from her. It’s why I gotta ask, given what bill did, has that changed the way you look at your ex-husband?

Deacon: Honey, come on, you’ve gotta let me fix you something. Hey, my linguine with clam sauce? Unbelievable. Secret recipe.

Hope: All right, that does sound delicious, but I– I do have to get back to work soon.

Deacon: All right, I get it. Never stops, does it?

Hope: No, it does not.

[ Deacon chuckling ] But, you know what else doesn’t?

Deacon: Hm?

Hope: My love for you. How proud I am of you. I mean, the success here at il giardino, you helping to keep us all safe from sheila carter. I mean, dad, I know.

[ Hope sighing ] I know you don’t like to think of yourself as a hero, but you are. Especially to me.

Deacon: Come here.

[ Hope laughing ] Come here.

Hope: You did good.

Deacon: Honey, just so you know, I’m not responsible for bringing sheila down. That was all bill and ridge.

Hope: Okay, dad, I think you’re being way too modest. If it weren’t for you, then–

Deacon: I am– I am so happy that you think I did something heroic, but– but I didn’T. I didn’t orchestrate the sting. I mean, I just kinda got pulled into it.

Hope: Yeah, well, guess what? Now sheila’s in prison, and she can’t threaten or terrorize anyone anymore. And as much as you might wanna downplay it, I think that you have a lot to be proud of.

Hope: Dad, you– you are proud of yourself, right?

[ Deacon sighing ]

Carter: I completely understand why everyone’s in awe of what bill did. Ridge too and I know that you’ll always care for him. He’s will’s father. You two share a lot of history.

Katie: Yeah. Good and bad. And bill is infuriating and exasperating and controlling, but family has always come first for him, which is why it was so confusing, this whole thing with sheila. Ultimately, he was looking out for his family, and not just his own. What bill did was huge.

Carter: And?

Katie: And I’ve always known that there is goodness inside of bill. And now he’s proved it. And I’m glad that everyone can see the goodness inside of him. What I could see so many years ago.

Sheila: My inescapable fate?

Bill: Locked in a cell. Weeks passing into months, months into years, and years into, well, dead. No visitors. No family. No one. That is the fate you’ve brought upon yourself.

Sheila: No, that is the fate that you forced on me.

Taylor: Oh, my god. Sheila, just accept responsibility.

Sheila: Oh, like you have, taylor? I know what you did. You shot bill. You should be in the prison cell right next to mine. Time for downy mcbride to go to work. I recognize that look. That’s the look of a person that needs a slice of tiramisu. I know you said no on the linguine with clams, but I can’t let you leave empty-handed.

Hope: Huh. Now look who’s tryin’ to get rid of me.

Deacon: I’m not. I love when you come see me. I just know that you’re busy with hope for the future, which I’m curious how it’s going.

Hope: Oh. Because thomas is designing for me again?

Deacon: Well, you know, I’m just imagining the two of you back at it, working hard together.

Hope: Hm.

Deacon: Hm.

Hope: Well, it’s not just us. There’s also zende, who is a very important part of our team.

Deacon: Right, right, but of course, zende wasn’t obsessed with you.

Hope: Okay, you know what, dad, it’s going– it’s fine. It’s okay. Everything’s okay.

Deacon: So, you’re telling me that tommy boy is minding his ps and qs?

Hope: Yes.

Deacon: Because if he steps one toe over the line, I swear–

Hope: He hasn’t and he won’T.

Deacon: Okay, all right, okay. You’re sure about that?

Hope: Yeah.

Deacon: Hm.

Hope: It’s going to be fine.

Deacon: And how’s liam feel about that?

Hope: Uh, h– he’ll– he’ll come around.

Deacon: Which means he’s not real thrilled.

Hope: Okay, you know– know what, dad? Uh, how about I just focus on all that stuff, and you just focus on this beautiful restaurant here, and just know how very proud I am of you for helping to get rid of sheila from our lives once and for all, okay?

Deacon: Okay.

Carter: So, bill’s bravery and heroism reminds you of–

Katie: Reminds me that he can be both maddening and marvelous at the same time, but that does not mean–

Carter: Katie, look. Your feelings are your feelings. You don’t have to explain or justify them, least of all to me. Bill did a very heroic thing and he’s riding that wave right now, and I’m not dissing the man or taking away from anything he’s done, but the bill before this went down was a very different man.

Katie: I haven’t forgotten.

Carter: Good. Because what he’s done in the past, the way he treated you, the pain he caused you. I’m not saying this to upset you. I just don’t wanna see him hurt you again. That’s the very last thing I want.

Bill: Enough, sheila.

Sheila: It’s the truth. I know all about your dirty little secret, taylor. If I’ve gotta pay for my crimes, why doesn’t she?

Taylor: Oh no, bill. She’s threatening me.

Sheila: Oh, my– I may be locked up, but I can still cause a lot of trouble.

Bill: You can’t cause squat. I cut a deal with the feds. Taylor is fully exonerated. She never has to worry about that night ever again.

[ Taylor sighing ]

Taylor: Isn’t that amazing? Isn’t that the best news? Thank you. You see, the forresters, the logans and the spencers will never have to worry about being targeted by you ever again. Your days of terrorizing us are over.

Bill: Guard!

[ Door buzzing ]

Bill: You’ll die in here, sheila. And no one, absolutely no one, is going to care. Life… doesn’t stop for diabetes.

Waitress: Hi, what can I get you?

Sheila: I was thinking

of you. How wonderful you

have been and the risk that

you’ve taken allowing me

to stay here. I wanted to take

a risk for you.

Ridge: Nice work, deacon.

You bought us

just enough time.

Deacon: I’m sorry.

Sheila: Was– was any of

this even real?

Katie: I realize that everything you’re saying to me is out of concern for me.

Carter: Good. Because I hate the way bill took you for granted. The way he mistreated you. Returning to brooke saying she’s the greatest love of his life? Katie, he has disrespected you over and over and you are better than that. You deserve better. Even if it’s not me–

Katie: What makes you think it’s not you? I love the way you care for me. I love what we have become to each other. I have always admired you for any number of reasons, but now… I know you. And I can see and I trust that you see me, and you hear me, and that means so much. And I will not take that for granted.

Carter: Look, I’m deeply grateful that you trust me enough to share so much of yourself with me. And I realize your feelings for bill are complicated, just don’t forget you left him for a reason.

Bill: Sorry to interrupt.

Katie: Um, how did things go with sheila?

Bill: Good. She’s totally isolated. And she will stay that way until she takes her last breath. There is no soul left on the planet who has one ounce of sympathy for sheila carter.

[ Sheila grunting loudly ]

Sheila: Why am I still here? Why haven’t you taken my back to my luxury accommodations?

Guard: You got another visitor.

Sheila: Oh, no. No, uh, I’ve had enough of visitors for today, so just send ’em– just send whoever it is away.

Guard: What? Do I look like your secretary? You don’t get to bark orders at me.

Sheila: That’s not what I…

[ Door buzzing ]

Deacon: I’m sorry. I… I’m so sorry. Hi, I’m katie, I’ve lost 110 pounds

Deacon: I was worried about you. After your heart attack. How’re you doing?

Sheila: Well, physically, better, obviously. They never would’ve released me just to stuff me back into a prison cell.

[ Cell phone ringing ]

Deacon: Ridge and bill came to me. They didn’t give me a choice. I would’ve gone back to prison. I was always afraid something like this was gonna happen, you know? That you were gonna wind up behind bars. Your past was gonna catch up with you, but you gotta know, I didn’t want this. You know, I didn’t– just think about this crazy journey that we’ve been on together. That– that crazy redhead who showed up at my place. Sexy nine-toed beauty. I knew from the get go it was nuts to get involved with you, and I just– I couldn’t stop myself. Couldn’t help myself. And believe me, I tried. Every time I tried to get away, something just drew me back in.

Sheila: Do you know what that was?

Deacon: Yes. And so do you. You’ve always known how I felt about you. That hasn’t changed. Please tell me you don’t hate me.

Bill: I think it was really cathartic for taylor to express herself to sheila. Telling her that she will do everything in her power to wipe out any trace of that vile woman, as though she never existed.

Katie: Good. I’m happy she got to do that.

Carter: Me too.

Bill: Enough of that. I didn’t come back here to talk about sheila. I’m here to speak to katie. Alone. If that’s all right with you.

Katie: Anything you have to say to me, you can say in front of carter.

Bill: As you wish. You are so important to me, katie. I miss you. I miss what we once meant to each other. And my life, uh… my life isn’t a life without you in it. I need you now more than ever. All that time I spent, uh, trying to bust sheila, doing whatever I had to do to protect you. To protect everyone. It only reinforced how much I love you and how it would… kill me to lose you. But I know that you and carter, uh, have been spending time together. I– I respect that. Uh, I respect carter. He’s a good and decent man. That doesn’t mean I’m going to give up. We share a son. A family. And we can have that again if you just give me one more chance. I think I have proven to everyone with this sheila situation that I will go to any lengths necessary to get what I want. I love you, katie. And I believe that deep down in your soul, you still love me too. Tell me I’m not wrong. Tell me that you’re still my katie.
