Steffy: What do you mean sheila saved kelly’s life? What was she doing anywhere near her?
Finn: I was– I was distracted. I was on a phone call with my nurse about my patient and that’s when– that’s when kelly–
Steffy: Was pulled out into the ocean? She almost drowned?
Finn: Yeah. That’s when I made the biggest mistake of my life and I took my eyes off her. She was screaming my name and then–
Steffy: Oh, my god.
Finn: Then that’s when sheila ran into the water and thank god for my mom because sheila saved kelly’s life.
Wyatt: I can’t believe that you showed steffy a video of finn hugging his psychopathic birth mother and she didn’t even blink an eye?
Liam: No, she blinked. There– there was blinking.
Wyatt: So, you’re–
Liam: I’m saying instinctively, she’s gonna wanna defend her husband, right? So, now I– I– I don’t know what to do.
Wyatt: Well, there’s gotta be a way to convince her that– that finn can’t be trusted. I mean, he clearly has a connection to that lunatic.
Liam: I know, but steffy wants to trust him. She wants to give him the benefit of the doubt. Now…
[ Liam chuckling ] Finn is gonna find out I’m not so generous.
Deacon: Here. You okay? It’s hot.
Sheila: Thank you. Ooh. Yeah, I think I’m just a little bit in shock.
Deacon: Well, you did something pretty amazing today. You saved steffy’s daughter.
Sheila: It all happened so fast and I… I didn’t even think. I just knew I had to act.
Deacon: Thank god you did because it doesn’t always end this way when it comes to kids and water. This could’ve been a very different story if you hadn’t been there.
Sheila: You know, finn, he… he only looked away for a minute. He was horrified when– when he saw what happened.
Deacon: Horrified, but grateful to you, his mother, for being there.
[ Sheila chuckling ]
Sheila: He has to know, right? I mean, he really has to know how much I love him and that I would do anything for him and his family.
Deacon: You know who you are? You are a hero. Truly. There’s no other word to describe it.
[ Sheila chuckling ]
Sheila: I did what anybody would’ve done.
Deacon: I don’t know about that. It was pretty selfless. I mean, you could’ve been pulled out of that undertow too. You may have just pulled off a miracle. Come up with a way to prove to finn that you deserve to be in his life.
Sheila: That’s– that’s not what I was trying to do. All I was thinking about was kelly and her safety and that precious, little girl, she’s a part of finn’s family, which means she’s part of my family too. I– I treasure them. Steffy and hayes too. They mean everything in the world to me. I’ve been given a second chance at freedom. I– I can– I can do this. I know I can be a– a good force in– in finn’s life. I can make that happen.
Wyatt: Sheila’s not gonna give up. I’m telling you, bro. She’s– she’s gonna keep coming and coming after steffy and finn and those kids and– and everyone knows about her twisted, insatiable need to be loved.
Liam: Yeah, and right now, she wants that love from finn.
Wyatt: Yeah. I mean, you– you gotta do something about this. I’m serious.
Liam: I intend to do something– okay, first of all, steffy can’t turn a blind eye forever, right? Secondly, what finn did was messed up and not normal and I’m not just gonna let it go because steffy asked me too. I mean, this could put all of them in danger, including my daughter.
Steffy: My baby could’ve drowned. Oh, my– oh, my god. I think I might be sick.
Finn: I know. It makes me sick too. And look, I just– I turned my back for a second.
Steffy: You never, ever turn your back on a child at the water! You know that!
Finn: I know that, I know that, and it was– it was stupid and– and– and it was careless, right? But you need to believe me, honey. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if anything happened to her, but nothing did happen to her, steffy. Look, she’s safe, okay? She’s all right and she’s in her room.
Steffy: Because of sheila.
Finn: Yes. And look, I know how you feel about my mother, rightfully so, but look, she saved kelly today. How can I not be anything but grateful for that? So maybe, you should just cut her some slack. Martial arts is my passion.
Deacon: I could– I could only imagine how finn felt seeing kelly out there in the water helpless.
Sheila: If anything had happened to her, he never would have forgiven himself.
Deacon: You were there.
Sheila: Yeah. He called me “mom.”
Sheila: Yeah, when he– when he thanked me for saving kelly’s life, he called me mom. Yeah, after everything, I just… I never thought that my heart could– could ever feel this full.
Deacon: I remember– I remember the moment that I finally felt that hope acknowledged and accepted me. It’s incredible, isn’t it?
Sheila: That love. I mean, kelly even asked him if I was his really his mother and finn told her yes, that I was his mother. That’s a moment that I am never gonna forget. I, suddenly– the past, all the terrible mistakes I made, they just didn’t matter. I was– I was just a mom. That’s it. I wasn’t a monster and I wasn’t feared. I was just a mother and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to be.
Liam: I understand steffy’s desire to defend her husband. She doesn’t wanna think that finn is vulnerable to somebody as– as sick and twisted and dangerous as sheila, but even when I showed her the video of them hugging, she still kinda, like, made excuses for him.
Wyatt: Okay, well then, you gotta keep trying, man. The stakes are way too high right now.
Liam: We agree. I’m gonna– I’m gonna keep trying. I can’t trust finn right now just as a stepfather. Like, I don’t care if he’s married to steffy.
Wyatt: Right. And– and that– that has nothing to do with this, right? 100%?
Liam: The– what?
Wyatt: The fact that finn and steffy are married and that you might be having feelings for her again.
Liam: I’m not trying to undermine steffy’s marriage. Yes, of course, I– I care about her. I’m always gonna look out for her, want her to be safe, but this is about my daughter living under that roof, right? And if finn is putting her at risk, I’m not backing down.
Steffy: You want me to cut sheila some slack?
Finn: I know you’re horrified about what could’ve happened and I am too. It’s terrifying thinking about kelly–
Steffy: Kelly drowning all alone?
Finn: Look, I’m never gonna be able to get those screams out of my mind and I am sorry. Steffy, I am so sorry.
Steffy: I know you are.
Finn: I am. I’m sorry, but we just– we need to keep reminding ourselves that kelly, she is all right and the fact that sheila was there was a miracle. I mean, she’s– she’s a hero.
Steffy: A hero?
Finn: I mean, yeah, if we’re being realistic.
Steffy: Realistic? Because of sheila, kelly almost lost her mother. Hayes almost lost both of his parents. Sheila, your hero, was willing to let us die after shooting us. Have you forgotten?
Finn: No, I haven’t– I– all I care about at this point is that kelly is here. She’s with us. We can still hold her. We can read her a bedtime story tonight. What could have happened, didn’T. Sheila prevented it. Okay, today, sheila saved a life. Hey, it’s me…your skin.
Wyatt: Okay, I’m just pointing out here. You even said yourself, right? You’ve never had an issue with finn before this.
Liam: Yeah, no, right. Which is why it’s ridiculous to think I have some ulterior motive showing steffy the video. I’m protecting my daughter.
Wyatt: Okay. And you don’t think finn would deliberately do anything to hurt kelly?
Liam: No. No. No, no, no. Of course not. But he is susceptible to sheila, who we all know is a master manipulator, so like, what if, right? What if he lets his guard down? What if he lets her in more? I’m just saying, I’m not gonna ignore what I saw. I love kelly and steffy too much to let any harm come to them by sheila.
Deacon: Well, it’s obvious how much what happened– that it means to you.
Sheila: Yeah. I suddenly feel like I can start over. That it’s not just a possibility, but a reality. It can happen.
Deacon: Okay, okay, slow down, all right? Look, I get what a big impact this has had on you.
Sheila: And on finn too.
Deacon: And finn. I got it, okay? I just don’t want you to get your hopes up. Sheila, steffy might not see it that way.
Sheila: Oh, well, she should. You know, I– I saved her daughter’s life. If it weren’t for me, kelly would’ve drowned. She’d be gone. She’s– she’s gotta be thankful for that, right? She’s gotta be thankful to me.
Steffy: Are you hearing yourself?
Finn: I know. Look, steffy. Like it or not, my mom saved kelly today–
Steffy: Oh, stop calling her your mother. My gosh. I can’t believe you’re saying these things and what was sheila doing at the beach anyway?
Finn: I don’t– I don’t know. She was just there, but thank god she was.
Steffy: Oh, so she was stalking my daughter and you?
Finn: She wasn’t stalking anyone.
[ Steffy scoffing ] Look, kelly, she’s gonna be able to grow up and have a life because of sheila.
Steffy: Oh, my god. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?
Deacon: You expect steffy to thank you?
Sheila: You think that’s too much to ask for?
Deacon: Um, yeah, maybe, if you look at it from her perspective. I mean, you were lurking on the beach.
Sheila: I wasn’t lurking.
Deacon: Okay, you were “watching” from a distance. You know, I mean– never supposed to go near any of them, none of them, yet, there you are.
Sheila: And it’s a good thing that I did or kelly would be gone.
Deacon: Okay, agreed. That’s true. You– you did something wonderful, you should be proud of yourself. You did something selfless, right? Maybe you should keep doing that?
Sheila: What are you talking about?
Deacon: Being selfless. Just stay away from steffy, hayes, kelly and finn.
Sheila: What are you saying? Are you saying that I should just walk away? You’re out of your mind.
Wyatt: Did you just hear yourself there? “I love kelly and steffy.”
Liam: Oh, no. No, no. You know what I meant.
Wyatt: I know what you meant and I also know that you kissed steffy twice and then you told me about it. I also know that you have information that could potentially jeopardize her relationship with finn, okay? Look, I’m not telling you you shouldn’t have told steffy about finn hugging that psycho. That’s information you shouldn’t keep from her, but I am asking you this. You need to be honest with yourself right now, okay? How much of this is you wanting to protect steffy and kelly and how much of it is actually you wanting to get back with steffy?
Steffy: Finn, whatever happened at the beach today is still sheila. She has terrorized my family for years. She hurts people.
Finn: I know, but not today, steffy. Today, she saved your daughter. Look, she saved me. I mean, I– I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I let kelly drown. She saved me today as much as much as she saved kelly.
Steffy: Do you remember when she tried to take your life? How long do you think she watched you in the alley? Did she call for help? No. No, finn. She didn’T. She just walked away. That’s not someone you just call a hero or cut someone some slack.
Finn: Well, you weren’t there. You didn’t hear kelly screaming out my name and thank god that my mother did because she rescued kelly from the water. Steffy, I took her, still breathing, still alive, out of my mother’s arms. She gave her back to me, back to us. She gave— she gave me a second chance to do better because of my mistake, my stupid mistake of taking my eyes off of kelly and putting her in danger. It didn’t cost kelly her life and it didn’t cost me my mine because I don’t know how I would be able face myself. How would I even be able to go on knowing that happened on my watch? But kelly is okay. She’s alive and that is all that matters and she’s alive because–
Steffy: Because of sheila.
Finn: Yeah. Yeah.
Steffy: Did you thank her?
Finn: Did I thank her? Yeah, of course I thanked her. How could I not?
Steffy: Did you… embrace her?
Finn: At the beach? What? No. I– I–
Steffy: What about somewhere else?
Finn: What are you talking about?
Steffy: I found something else out today. Something I… I didn’t want to believe. After the hearing in the judge’s chamber, when we heard that bill’s plan backfired and sheila was released to terrorize our family again, you disappeared.
Finn: Why are– why are you bringing this up?
Steffy: I wondered where you went. You said you had to take care of a patient. You just left out the fact that that patient was sheila. You saw her after she was released. She was emotional, euphoric. Do you feel the same? She embraced you. And you embraced her back, didn’t you?
Finn: Yeah. Yeah, I did. I– I embraced her. I embraced sheila.
Steffy: We almost lost kelly today! We almost lost her! Everything, after everything sheila has done to our family, how she’s terrorized us, you want me, you want me to be grateful to her? God, we agreed, we agreed to keep that lunatic out of our lives for good and yet, you just admitted, you just admitted it. Oh, my god. You wrapped your arms around sheila. You hugged her! Your mother! How could you– how could you do this? How am I supposed to ever trust you again?
