(We missed the first half of this due to power outage; we’ll have it up later this week)
Liam: Dear brother, I am not out to torpedo steffy’s marriage. I am only concerned about keeping her and kelly safe from sheila.
Wyatt: And you don’t think finn feels the same way?
Liam: Did you not see the video? That is not– that is not the kind of thing I can ignore. The stakes are too high.
Wyatt: What– where are you going?
[ Chuckling ] Or do I even need to ask?
Deacon: So, you signed the papers? It’s– it’s done.
Brooke: Honey, why didn’t you wait? Liam loves you. He doesn’t really want this divorce. He’s just angry and lashing out. You still have time to fix it. Don’t give up on your marriage so easily.
Hope: Except I’m not the one who gave up on my marriage so easily, mom. That was him. This is why I avoided telling you because I knew this would be your reaction. I know you want me to fight for my marriage, mom.
Brooke: Yes, of course I do because you have a family, beth and douglas.
Hope: And liam and i are going to make sure that this is as non-disruptive for them as possible.
Deacon: I’m just so sorry that you have to go through this, sweetheart.
Hope: Me too. I mean, believe me, this was, um, not an easy decision to make.
Deacon: Well, your mother and i are here for you. You made a mistake. Mistakes don’t define you.
Brooke: Deacon’s right. I just wish a divorce wasn’t the price you have to pay for this mistake.
Hope: Well, I– I take full responsibility for what happened with thomas, but, like I said before, I also don’t want to be with someone who doesn’t fight for what we have. Who doesn’t give me the same grace that I’ve allowed him how many times before? Who still loves steffy. I mean, I’m tired of accepting that.
Brooke: I just don’t think you should give up on your marriage so easily.
Deacon: Okay, so, what are you saying here? Are you moving ahead with thomas?
Hope: I don’t know what the future holds, but I just– I just don’t want you to worry about me. I will be fine, okay? This is why I wanted you to hear this from me.
Brooke: Well, we appreciate you telling us about this and being open and honest. But honey, I am– I’m heartbroken for you. And I know your marriage matters to you. And I truly believe that liam is the love of your life.
Hope: Except, I’m not the only love of liam’s life. He also loves steffy, and I have been in competition with her for what feels like forever and I just– I don’t wanna live like that anymore.
[ Knocking on door ]
Steffy: Who is it?
Liam: Yo, it’s liam.
Steffy: Oh, my gosh.
[ Steffy sighing ]
Steffy: Hi. Come in.
Liam: I, uh– I just– I don’t know. I came to check on you. A lot happened today, so, just seeing how you’re doing. What’s wrong?
[ Steffy sighing ]
Steffy: It’s just so stressful. I don’t think I’m ever gonna be able to let my guard down now that sheila’s out of prison.
Liam: Yeah, that’s, uh–
[ Clears throat ] That’s kind of why I– I came to talk to you. It’s about sheila. And your husband.
Hope: I get that you’re both concerned.
Deacon: We are, but we support you. We love you, sweetheart.
[ Phone chiming ]
Hope: I appreciate that, I do, and I love you both.
Deacon: Uh, looks like I got a package delivered upstairs. I’m gonna have to go.
Hope: Okay, well, thank you for listening to me and always being on my side.
Deacon: Always. See you, brooke. Bye.
Brooke: I support you too, sweetie.
Hope: I know.
Brooke: I just love you so much. And you and I both know that it was more than just a kiss that you shared with thomas. Is that the reason why you had these divorce papers drawn up?
Hope: Mom, I just know that I deserve to be with someone whose feelings aren’t divided.
Brooke: Ah, I never wanted this for you.
Brooke: I mean, I can’t believe that your marriage is coming to an end.
Hope: I can’t believe it either.
Deacon: Come on, hollis, where the hell did you put this thing?
[ Door clicks closed ]
Deacon: What the hell?
Sheila: I’m back, daddy.
[ Both laughing ]
Steffy: Sheila? What about her?
Liam: And finn. Um, listen, it– I– I’m still tripping out over the fact that– that my dad’s plan just didn’t work and– and sheila’s out of prison, but right now, the focus is knowing that– that you and kelly and hayes and everyone is– is safe.
Steffy: I– I appreciate your concern, and we are taking every precaution, but you don’t have to worry about me.
Liam: Well, I’m liam, I worry. Worrying is my thing. So, tough.
Steffy: I can take care of myself. Hey, I promise you, nothing’s gonna happen to the children, okay? And I have finn. He’ll protect them.
Liam: Well, he might– you might– maybe not, okay? Maybe not.
Steffy: Liam, if this has something to do with my husband–
Liam: It does, it doe– it does have to do with that, and I’m really sorry, okay? Just– when the judge dropped the charges that– it– it was like just pure chaos in that room, right? So, I don’t know if you– if you clocked this or not?
Steffy: Clocked what?
Liam: But finn leaving the room. You– you remember that? Do you– he just– he left.
Steffy: He was checking in on a patient.
Liam: Yeah, you didn’t find that strange? Like– like, that couldn’t wait? Especially in that moment?
Steffy: What are you saying?
Liam: I was– well, I followed him out there.
Steffy: Why would you follow him?
Liam: Because it was weird, steffy. It was totally weird. Like, how– the timing of it, how he was acting, his body language, the way he was looking at sheila. Like, the whole vibe was off, and sheila had just been– she had been let out of the room ahead of him. And so, when I– when I followed them out there, what I saw blew my mind. And I debated coming to you with this, but at the end of the day, it’s all about safety, right?
Steffy: Can you just tell me what the hell you’re talking about? What did you see?
Liam: Just know this is gonna shock you.
Steffy: Tell me.
Liam: All right, but please, understand that I’m not saying any of this to like, mess with your marriage or cause problems or anything, okay? But when I– when I walked out of the room, and I saw them… sheila was in finn’s arms.
Steffy: What? N– no. No, no, that– that can’t be.
Liam: Well, it is. It’s– sheila and finn were– they were hugging, steffy.
