Finn: You saved her. Mom, you saved kelly’s life. Thank you. Mom, thank you so much.

Steffy: Finn’s not getting back to me. Straight to voicemail again. Yeah, the service can be a little spotty down at the beach.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: I know you wanted to spend the day with kelly, and she was excited to have her daddy daughter date, too.

Liam: Well, yeah, I mean, I figured I– I could maybe steal her away for a little bit. Just with everything going on, I feel like that’s more important than ever, you know. Maybe we go to venice, maybe we’d ride some bikes, check out the street art, visit that, uh, the ice cream shop. You know, the one on abbot kinney.

Steffy: Yeah, yeah. You know our girl.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: I– I am sorry that this is taking longer than I expected. Finn knows that you guys have plans.

Liam: I mean, it’s fine. It’s just– well, normally it would be fine, but–

[ Liam sighing ] Listen, I’ve always trusted finn to watch kelly. Like, you know that. Like, I’ve never had a problem with him taking her, but– but now, I don’t know, it feels a little different. Like, having seen him get all cozy with sheila, I just– now, I don’t feel like I can trust his judgment and if I can’t trust his judgment, how can I trust him to protect kelly from sheila? It’s like a whole thing.

Deacon: Okay. [ Sighing ]

Sheila: I’m going to see my son because somehow, some way, I’m going to convince him that– that I can be a positive force in his life. And his family’S.

Deacon: It’s going to take a miracle to make that happen.

[ Deacon sighing ]

Steffy: I still can’t believe sheila has been released.

Liam: I know. Tell me about it. Honestly, I’m still– I’m still just processing that. Like, I really thought that uld be put away for life, and now it’s like, oh, yeah, everything that my dad worked so hard for months to accomplish just backfired.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m surprised the court didn’t warn us that this was even an option.

Liam: I know.

Steffy: Sheila shot me. She shot her own son. It’s crazy that they’re just letting her loose.

Liam: Yeah, and now we’re right back to, you know, security guards at the house, security guards at work, cameras everywhere.

Steffy: I can’t– I really– I really can’t do it. I– I can’t talk about sheila anymore. We all know how dangerous she is. I just can’t think of her just taking over my entire life.

Liam: No, I– I understand, and– and– and I agree. We can’t do that, right? We can’t let, like, our whole existence become about sheila. It’s just– I just wish– I just wish I knew that– that–

Steffy: Kelly is safe. I know. I know.

Liam: Yeah, because– ’cause sheila’s not rational. Right? She’s not logical. She’s like, we have to treat her like a wild animal. And– and she’s proven over and over again how dangerous she is. And now what, she just– she just walks the streets, like, as she pleases?

Steffy: Liam, I promise you, nothing is going to happen to kelly, okay? I love my children and I will do whatever it takes to keep them safe.

Liam: I know you will. You’re an incredible mother. I trust you implicitly. That is not the issue. My issue right now is this– this thing going on with finn, whatever it is.

Steffy: Finn is a loving, attentive father. He loves kelly as if she were his own.

Liam: I–

Steffy: He wants to protect her as much as I do.

Liam: I know, I’m saying that is what I did believe. And now, after seeing him embrace sheila, I mean, he’s clear– he clearly has some feelings about his mom that he’s not dealing with and I worry that it could impact his judgment right now. I don’t know what’s going on with him. Maybe it’s just biological. Maybe there’s something inside of him that he can’t– it doesn’t ma– whatever the explanation is, I, as kelly’s dad, can’t in good conscience put my trust in him. Right? What’s my number one job? It’s to take care of kelly and her mother. I love kelly. I also love you. That’s not going to change, steffy.

Sheila: You don’t need to thank me. I’m just glad that I was here. But kelly is A… just precious little girl.

Finn: Yeah, she is. And I am… I am incredibly grateful, more than you will ever know. But you need to keep your distance. And I can’t see you.

Sheila: I’m just glad you’re okay. But next time you’re next to the water, you be very careful, sweetheart.

Kelly: Thank you again. Four delicious pieces of chocolate.

[ Phone buzzing ]

Steffy: You need to take that?

Liam: It’s the office. Honestly, I’m not going– I’m not going to worry about it. If it’s that important, wyatt’ll take care of it.

Steffy: Hey.

Liam: Yeah?

Steffy: Kelly’s fine. I know you’re concerned about finn being vulnerable to sheila, but you–

Liam: Well, there– well, there isn’t really a but here. I mean, sheila is a murderous psychopath. She’s a murderous psychopath who happens to be obsessed with my daughter’s stepfather. And you– you know firsthand what she’s capable of.

Steffy: Yeah, I– I do. And I don’t– I don’t want to think about it. She almost took finn away from me and my family. She cost– she cost me years apart from my mother. I’m done thinking about it.

Liam: Okay, well, then you– but then you understand why I’m so concerned.

Steffy: Okay, but we are talking about my husband. And yes, I– I did see finn embracing sheila in that video, but I do have to believe in him. I have to believe that there is some kind of explanation, because he has only been loyal and loving to me. I hate the thought of it. I hate– I hated watching that, but that doesn’t mean he’s not going to protect us.

Liam: You know what I keep thinking about lately? Is the day kelly was born… I mean, oh… there was so much leading up to it, you know? So much preparation and classes and– and planning and thinking and dreaming. And then– and then, it’s like the minute she arrived, nothing prepared us for that. I mean, it’s like the minute I actually held her in my arms, I knew that my life would never be the same again. I just– I don’t think I blinked for the rest of the day, I just stared, just kept staring in awe, knowing that nothing else mattered. Knowing that I just had to do everything I could to make sure she was happy and… safe. And not just her. Her and her mother. That’s part of it. You’re part of it. My job is to protect you, too. That doesn’t change. I know what I saw, steffy. And my gut– I’m sorry. My gut is telling me that for whatever reason, finn is– is vulnerable to sheila. And I can’t let you and kelly be the price for that.

[ Phone buzzing ]

[ Liam sighs ] What?

Steffy: It’s– it’s fine. Why don’t you just take care of whatever you have to? You’ve been waiting long enough. And I’ll text you once finn and kelly get back here, okay?

Liam: Well, can you text me just when you hear back from finn at all? Just so I– just so I know– I know that everything’s okay?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, of course.

Liam: Okay.

Steffy: Liam, I can’t explain why finn embraced sheila, but I trust my husband and I know he will not put the children or me at risk. He knows what sheila is capable of, okay? But I really appreciate it. That you’re so concerned about us.

Liam: Always.

[ Knocking on door ]

Deacon: Working.

[ Knocking on door ]

Sheila: Come on. Deacon, open up. It’s– it’s me.

[ Deacon sighs ]

Deacon: Don’t do it. Don’t do it. Don’t be stupid. You’re gonna do it. You’re gonna do it. Great.

Sheila: Now, you lock the door?

Deacon: What– what happened to you? I thought you went to see finn.

Sheila: I did. And you won’t believe what happened. I saved kelly’s life.

Steffy: Finn, where are you?

[ Steffy sighing ] Finally. You two were gone a long time. Hi, sweetheart. Did you have fun at the beach?

Kelly: Something happened, mommy. Something really scary.

Steffy: Oh, really? What happened?

Kelly: I almost drowned.

Liam: If finn really is

vulnerable to his birth mother,

then you need to know that.

Steffy: No.

No, no, no, no,

this does not make–

it does not make any sense.

I can’t explain this video, but

there is no way finn would put

me or our family in jeopardy.

Wyatt: Hey.

Liam: Hi.

Wyatt: What are you doing here? I thought you were taking the rest of the afternoon off to be with kelly.

Liam: Uh, yeah, I was. I am. I am. Hopefully.

Wyatt: I was, I am, hopefully?

Liam: Finn took kelly to the beach and they’re still not back yet.

Wyatt: Ah. Am I sensing a bit of jealousy?

Liam: No, it’s not jealousy. You know that I have good reasons for being concerned about finn right now.

Wyatt: Oh, no, that’s totally true. I feel the same way about seeing that video of finn hugging that she-devil. So, how’d it go?

Liam: What?

Wyatt: You telling steffy about finn hugging his mom.

Liam: Ah.

Wyatt: You did tell her, right?

Liam: Um, yeah, I told her.

Wyatt: Okay, good, ’cause there’s no way that she could accept finn letting sheila anywhere near her or the kids after hearing that, right?

Deacon: So you– you ran in and you pulled kelly from the surf? How the hell did this even happen?

Sheila: That’s– I went– I went to the hospital, and I– I saw finn and kelly leaving and I followed them. They didn’t even know that I was– I was watching. And they went– they went to the beach. And they went surfing. And– and after surfing, they were playing in the sand. And finn must have got a really important phone call because he stepped away a little bit. And I kept an eye on– on kelly because she went down to the water’s edge with her bucket. Before you knew it, she got swept away. She got swept under. And I– I went– I went in after her.

Deacon: God, she– she’s okay, right?

Sheila: Yeah, she’s fine.

Deacon: I mean, sheila, if you hadn’t been there… you saved steffy’s daughter’s life.

Steffy: Oh, my god. Sweetheart, are you okay?

Finn: Kelly’s okay. I– I checked her out. She’s okay.

Kelly: I’m all right, mommy. The ocean took my bucket. I tried to get it, but got sucked in.

Steffy: Oh, my goodness. Oh, I’m so sorry. That must have been so scary. Thank god finn was with you.

Kelly: Finn’s mom saved me.

Steffy: Li was there?

Kelly: Not, li. Sheila. Postmenopausal women with hr+ her2-

Deacon: Wow, I’m– I’m stunned. I mean, I– thank god you didn’t listen to me about stalking finn because if you had, things could have ended very differently for that little girl.

Sheila: Oh, I can’t even think about that. That’s just too horrible. Wha– what’s really important is– is kelly is safe.

Deacon: I mean, I– look, I’ll admit it. I thought you were crazy– misguided for thinking that you could somehow convince finn that you deserve to be in his life, but sheila, sheila, you– you may have just pulled off the impossible today.

Wyatt: Seriously, bro. I mean, did steffy totally lose it after hearing about finn hugging his psycho bio mom?

Liam: Well, look, okay, so, you know, predictably, she wasn’t thrilled to find out that– that finn was hugging sheila outside the judge’s chambers, but she still– she didn’t react the way I did, for example.

Wyatt: What? What do you mean? Why not?

Liam: Well, you know, finn’s her husband. She wants to believe him. She wants to– she wants to think that he would never let any harm come to her or the kids. Now, obviously, I don’t share that bias, so yours truly doesn’t trust the guy now.

Steffy: Sheila? Sheila saved you?

Finn: Hey, look, I can explain.

Kelly: Can I go take a shower?

Steffy: Yes, of course you can. Oh, I’m so sorry that you had to go through that.

Kelly: It’s all right, mommy. I’m okay. I love you, too.

Steffy: I love you. What the hell happened?

Finn: Uh, kelly was fine. We were surfing, we built a sandcastle and, um… I had an important work call about a patient and I… put my earbuds in and I couldn’t hear very well. I had bad reception and I was trying to shield myself from the wind and I turned my back on her for just, like, a moment.

Steffy: You never turn your back on a child at the beach!

Finn: Look, it just– it happened so fast that– and then, I suddenly just– I heard…

Kelly: Help, finn! Help!

Finn: …I heard her crying for help and I rushed in immediately, and I– and I got her, okay? And then, that’s just– that’s– that’s when I saw her.

Steffy: Sheila.

Finn: Yeah. I mean, I was stunned, just as you are, but in that moment, it didn’t matter, okay? Kelly was safe. Yes, she got to her first, but I took her from sheila and I– I got her to the shore to make sure she was okay.

Steffy: Okay? Okay? My god, I could have lost my daughter. She could have drowned. What the hell were you thinking? You never turn your back on a child at the beach.

Finn: I know, okay? I’m sorry. I– I’m sorry.

Steffy: What the hell was sheila even doing there?

Finn: I don’t know. Okay? Honestly, I don’t know. She was just– she was there, but thank god she was… because if– because if she wasn’t, may– I mean, she saved her life. My mother saved kelly’s life.
