Finn: You don’t trust me?
Steffy: How can I? You embraced sheila after she was released and you didn’t even tell me about it!
Finn: Yeah, yeah, it’s true, okay? I did. I don’t know why I– I did, but after what happened today–
Steffy: After? My daughter almost drowned.
Finn: And she didn’t because of my mother.
Steffy: Your mother. Oh, your mother. Sheila hurt us so deeply, so profoundly, and yet, you were able to wrap your arms around her when you promised to keep her away from us and our family. How could you, finn? Why?
Sheila: I’ve been given
a second chance.
Thank god, my son.
Sheila: Kelly, no!
Kelly: She saved me.
Finn: Thank you.
Mom, thank you.
Deacon: I need to get back to the restaurant. It’s not gonna run itself. Hey, um, I’m not so sure you should stay here.
Sheila: What do you mean?
Deacon: I think you gotta leave town. Today.
Wyatt: We could plaster her face all over the cover of eye on fashion. Warn everybody that that lunatic is on the loose.
Liam: I mean, listen, the– the– the press is gonna catch onto it eventually anyway and I’m sure it’s already all over social media– you know what? This doesn’t matter. This doesn’t matter. She’s free. She can do whatever she wants and there’s nothing anybody can do about it, so cheers to that.
Wyatt: Hey, hey, hey. I’m concerned about steffy, kelly and hayes here too, okay? I get it.
Liam: Because you’re a rational, ethical person and there’s every reason to be concerned.
Wyatt: Exactly, but I still have to ask you one more time, how much of this is about you wanting to get steffy back?
Deacon: Don’t you think finn and his family would be better off–
Sheila: Oh, wait, wait. Better off if I hadn’t shown up at the beach today? Better off if I didn’t save kelly’s life? No. No way. I am meant to be here. I’ve known that all along and today proved it. What happened today was a miracle, deacon. A miracle that is going to give me a second chance with my son.
Liam: Wyatt, sheila is dangerous. My family’s at risk.
Wyatt: I completely agree. This is a tough situation and we’ve got to be on our guard.
Liam: Okay, but the risk to steffy and kelly, it’s not in my head. It’s real.
Wyatt: 100%. I know that and I get that, but there is a lot more going on here. Can’t you see that? Just admit it. Just tell me that you want another shot with steffy.
Finn: I– I don’t know why I embraced sheila, okay? That’s the truth. It’s not something that I intended, okay? It’s not something that I thought through. It’s just that– in the moment, she wasn’t sheila carter. She wasn’t the woman that has caused so much damage to you and– and to us. She was just– she was my mother. She was just the woman who gave birth to me. I’m not gonna deny that. It doesn’t make any sense. It doesn’t make any sense at all, but I’m not gonna deny that. I’m not gonna make any excuses. It did, okay? It did happen.
Steffy: And you’re… you’re fine with that. You’re fine that you crossed that line?
Finn: It’s not something that I thought I was gonna need to explain or something that I even… think I could, but… how did you even know about that? You weren’t there.
Steffy: No, finn. I was in the judge’s chambers freaking out that sheila was about to be released.
Finn: Yeah, but how did you find out?
Steffy: Doesn’t matter.
Finn: It doesn’t matter. Well, it matters to me.
Steffy: Liam told me.
Finn: Liam told you.
Steffy: He followed you. He saw you and sheila together.
Keep it quilted means
you keep it the best.
Sheila: I never thought that I’d be standing here, deacon, a free woman. I have been given this amazing gift. I have to believe its fate. I– I am meant to have a relationship with my son.
Deacon: Come on. It’s not fate. It’s because bill’s boneheaded master plan was an epic fail.
Sheila: I thought I was gonna be spending the rest of my life behind bars. No contact with anyone. Never being able to– to touch my beautiful son again. Never being able to show him how much I love him and his family. Kelly and hayes growing up, never even knowing of my existence. I believe in second chances and I know you do too. Everyone deserves one, even me. You know, I… I felt it when I had my arms around finn. When they released me and he– he embraced me back and you could feel that intensity, that emotion. And I could– I could see it in his face when I saved kelly from drowning. He called me “mom.” That’s how I know finn is going to want me in his life.
Wyatt: Look, I’m not trying to make you feel uncomfortable or guilty here. Hell, I– dude, I don’t even feel like you did anything wrong. I just want a straight answer out of you.
Liam: Oh, my god! You want a straight answer? Really? Do I want steffy?
Liam: Do I want steffy?
Liam: This– this– this is dumb! It doesn’t even matter!
Wyatt: Oh, my god.
Liam: I’ve been married to hope this whole time, steffy is currently happily married to dr. Do-no-wrong finnegan, so why are you– this is–
Wyatt: And everything has changed, including your feelings for her! Yes, you share a daughter. You’ll always love her. You have a ton of history. Come on, dude! You know there’s more going on here and you– you can’t deny that. I bet you felt that the moment your lips touched hers.
Finn: Liam’s involved? How?
Steffy: He decided to follow you when you left the chamber. He said he was picking up a weird vibe from you during the hearing.
Finn: This guy has it out for me, steffy, now that he’s left hope. You have to see that.
Steffy: He saw you hugging sheila! He didn’t just make it up.
Finn: No, but he ran to you at the first opportunity he could with this information.
Steffy: What is he supposed to do? Keep it from me? Kelly’s safety is at risk. He’s worried about us.
Finn: Yeah, well, we don’t need his worry. I can protect my own family.
Steffy: Oh, really? Really? Because it seems like sheila is stalking you and my daughter.
Finn: Oh, so he just– he told you everything? I mean, he must have loved doing that.
Steffy: He didn’t just tell me, finn. He showed me.
Finn: He showed– what are you talking about?
Steffy: He recorded it on his phone.
Finn: Oh, my– he recorded me? He recorded me? Of course, he recorded me. This– it is so obvious what he’s doing. Steffy, this is what he does. He wants you back. He’s trying to destroy our marriage.
Steffy: What are you talking about? He’s thinking about kelly. He’s concerned about her. He’s trying to protect us, keep us safe, finn.
Finn: From me. You think that you need to be protected from me. I’m barbara and I’m fromst. Joseph, michigan.
Deacon: You should be proud of yourself. You saved a life. I’m just saying, maybe you shouldn’t press your luck.
Sheila: I’m not going anywhere, deacon.
Deacon: That’s your call. I care about you, sheila. I do. I should probably get my head examined, but you just can’t stay here. I’ve got a relationship right now with brooke and with hope and it’s good and I have worked hard to have that, and if I associate with you, I could lose everything, including the restaurant.
Sheila: I– I understand.
Deacon: I’m happy for you. I want you to enjoy your new found freedom. You just can’t do it here.
Sheila: I get it. You and me, it’s– it’s complicated. But are you 100% sure with your decision?
[ Clothes dropping ]
[ Deacon chuckling ] I see you didn’t get rid of all my things.
Deacon: You really think that’s gonna work?
Sheila: Oh, yeah. I think it’s definitely going to work, daddy.
[ Liam sighing ]
Liam: Look, o– okay. All right. Okay, just… what– what happened in rome, you don’t get it, man. It– it was so unexpected. I mean, seeing… seeing hope kissing thomas in front of the colosseum, it was– it was confusing. It was devastating.
Wyatt: Sure, sure. And then you ran into steffy, right?
Liam: Wyatt, I was still reeling, you know? Before anything even started to make any sense, there she was, beautiful as ever. Mother of my child. I mean, this is someone that I have loved more than I ever thought possible. And yeah, and– you know, in that moment, especially given what I’d just seen, I started to feel like losing steffy was the worst mistake of my life and it– and it– I don’t know. It just took over. It just happened. I kissed her. The problem is… I haven’t been able to stop thinking about that kiss ever since.
Steffy: I hate this, finn. I hate this whole situation. I hate that bill’s stupid plan backfired and sheila is just roaming free. I feel like I’m in this constant state of vigilance. I’m never gonna be able to let my guard down. I hate what happened to my daughter today. I know it was a mistake. I know how much you love her, but my god, what a mistake it could’ve been.
Finn: Yeah, but it wasn’t, steffy, because my mother–
Steffy: Because of your mother. That’s what I hate most of all. I hate that sheila is your mother. She feels like she has this claim to you and through you, has some claim to my family.
Finn: She’s a part of me.
Steffy: Oh, my god. No, she is not. That is not true.
Finn: It is true. She loves me. She gave birth to me.
Steffy: She’s not capable of loving, finn. You know that. But I don’t have faith that you do anymore.
Finn: Steffy, please don’t say that. Look, you can have faith in me. Honey, look at me. You know how much I love you. You know how much I love our family. This? This is about liam. He’s manipulating you, steffy, against me. He’s showing you videos of me hugging sheila.
Steffy: You hugged sheila after she was released. There’s no explaining that away.
Finn: Yeah, I hugged sheila. Yeah, I’m grateful she saved kelly’s life, but liam? He should’ve never gotten involved. You know what? I don’t care that this is kelly’s home. I don’t want him in our house again.
Steffy: Well, I don’t think you’re gonna have to worry about that now.
Finn: What is that supposed to mean?
Steffy: Finn, I love you… but I can’t have the children here. I can’T. Not when you’re so vulnerable to sheila. My first priority and always will be protecting kelly and hayes. So, I’m taking the children and I’m leaving. Moving forward with node- positive breast cancer
Sheila: I’ve got so much burning inside of me that I want to share with you.
Deacon: Being locked up in a jail cell will do that to you.
Sheila: Come on, deacon. Come on. Mama wants her big daddy.
Liam: You got me. You got me, all right? I admit it. That moment in rome, kissing steffy… I just– I keep replaying it in my head over and over again and I… how could I not?
Wyatt: Hey, man. I get it.
Liam: But wyatt, you gotta believe me that that is not where my head’s at right now. The most important thing is kelly and yes, steffy’s well-being. And finn can’t keep them safe.
Finn: You’re– you’re leaving?
Steffy: I’m gonna stay at my grandfather’S. I need to know that the kids are gonna be safe from sheila.
Finn: Please, steffy. Don’t do this, okay? I’m sorry for what happened to kelly at the beach today, all right? And I’m sorry for hugging sheila outside the judge’s chambers. You’re right, okay? I shouldn’t have done that. I don’t know why I did. Just something overcame me.
Steffy: That’s what scares me. You have this connection to her that you can’t even explain. How am I supposed to trust that you’re not gonna give into her again?
Finn: You can trust me. You can trust in my love for you and the children.
Steffy: I wanna believe that, I really do, but I– I can’T. I can’t live this way. Not– not when you have these, like, feelings towards her.
Finn: Look, she’s my birth mother, okay? I was drawn to her in the moment. It’s not gonna happen again.
Steffy: I can’t take that chance. I’m sorry.
Finn: You can’t take that chance? You’re overreacting.
Steffy: I’m overreacting? I’m overreacting! How can you say that after everything sheila has done to us? She tried to take you and me away from our children. You know what? I– I’m leaving. I– I gotta pack–
Finn: Steffy, you wanna know something? This is not– this is about, liam, steffy.
Finn: This is what he does, okay? He puts these doubts in your mind.
Steffy: Oh, my god.
Finn: No, listen to me. I’m not blind. Now that his marriage to hope is falling apart, so now, of course, he wants you.
Steffy: Finn, this has nothing to do with liam.
Finn: Steffy, you are– you’re my whole world. I’ll protect you.
Steffy: Finn, I fell in love with you. We were building our life together and then I found out that sheila was your birth mother. Birth mother from hell.
Finn: Look, fine. I– I’ll have nothing to do with her, okay? She will have no part of my life, I swear.
Steffy: You can’t promise that. You cannot promise that. Sheila will find a way to see you and you said yourself that you have this– this need, this– this kind of connection to her.
Finn: No. Nothing, nothing is more important to me than you and our children. I love you. You have to believe that. Please, steffy. Don’T… don’t take the kids, okay? Don’t– don’t– I’m begging you, please, don’t walk out the door.
