[ Relaxing music ]
Kelly: I’m okay, I promise.
Liam: We are so grateful for that.
Kelly: I don’t want you guys to worry.
Steffy: Baby, we’re always going to worry about you. What do I say to you every time I tuck you in at night?
Kelly: That the whole world can’t hold all the love for me.
Steffy: Exactly because you mean the whole world to me.
Liam: And to me too because we love you so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so much.
Kelly: And you love Mommy so much too?
Finn: I just– I just can’t believe that Steffy just walked out the door with the kids and left me.
Li: For good reason. Yeah. Because Sheila Carter saved Kelly’s life while you took a call. And you embraced that woman when she was released from prison. Steffy leaving seems quite obvious to me. It’s because of Sheila.
Finn: No, Mom. Steffy left because of Liam. He’s trying to undermine my marriage.
Brooke: My goodness! You have four more interviews today.
Hope: Yup. It’s been pretty nonstop. Katie has me booked pretty much throughout the rest of the month.
Brooke: Yeah. And the orders just keep pouring in. You are very much the it girl in the fashion world at the moment.
Hope: Well, at the moment. It does feel nice to have all of our hard work finally pay off. Have a little bit of success and notoriety, but if I am being honest, I’m just grateful to have a distraction right now.
Hope: You know, I’m still smiling about modeling with you in Rome. I don’t think I have ever seen you look more beautiful.
Brooke: You too, baby.
[ Hope chuckling ]
Brooke: That will always be a very special memory for me.
[ Brooke mouthing ]
Brooke: Italy was just so magnificent.
Hope: Yeah, I… especially for you and Ridge. Not so much for Liam and me.
Brooke: Right. Are you and Liam really going to go through with this divorce?
Li: Finn, make no mistake, this is not about Liam. This is all happening because of Sheila. She managed to get out of prison yet again! She could be outside this house this very moment waiting to strike. It is such an injustice that she was set free. Please tell me you agree with that!
Finn: Yes! Of course I think that Sheila should still be in prison.
Li: Okay, great. That’s a start. But Finn, you let that woman embrace you and you embraced her back. Why would you ever do that?
Finn: Mom… look, I don’t– it’s– it’s difficult to explain, okay? Especially to you. But do I feel something for Sheila? Yeah, okay? I do. I just– I can’t help that.
Li: No. No. You cannot feel anything for that woman! Finn, if you do, honey, you will lose Steffy forever.
Liam: Of course, baby girl. I will always love you and Mommy.
Steffy: Kelly, why– why don’t you go check on Hayes, okay? But first, can I get one more hug? Love you.
[ Steffy sighing ]
Steffy: All right, go check on him.
[ Steffy sighing ]
Liam: I meant that, you know. What I said about Kelly. And you.
Brooke: Honey, you know there are always solutions to repair your marriage.
Hope: I do know that and I do agree, but I just don’t know what you are trying to get at right now.
Brooke: I just don’t feel that this divorce is something that you really want.
Hope: Ah. Well, we signed the papers. I– I don’t know what else you want me to tell you, Mom. Liam and I were at an impasse.
Brooke: Honey, so what? You just throw your arms up in the air and say, “that’s it?” You just give up? Just like that, jump in bed with some other guy? Come on, Hope. You have a family. You’ve gotta fight for that family. You have children.
Brooke: This isn’t all about you.
Hope: I know that. I know all of that, Mom. And you’re right. This hasn’t been all about me, has it? Liam has always allowed Steffy to be a part of it. That’s part of the issue, Mom, and– and I’ve allowed it and I’m just tired because I don’t want to feel like I’m sharing him or his love anymore. I’m sure it’s the same way you felt about Ridge and Taylor and I don’t want that for my life, okay? It’s just about me and what I am willing to tolerate and the kind of example I want to set for my kids and, hey Mom, if I am the new It Girl of fashion, well then… this It Girl doesn’t want to come second anymore to anyone.
Finn: Wait, you just– you have to understand. I have no idea Sheila was even there in that moment. When I saw her holding Kelly in the water, all that mattered was that little girl, all right? I didn’t care who was doing the saving, I just wanted to make sure that Kelly was safe.
Li: That’s not hard for me to comprehend, Finn. Kelly is your step-daughter.
Finn: So, is it so wrong for me to be grateful to Sheila for getting swept up in the moment and calling her Mom?
Li: Of course it was. You can never call her that. And how can you ask Steffy to cut Sheila some slack. I don’t blame Steffy for taking the kids and leaving.
[ Steffy exhaling ]
Steffy: What a big day for them. Hayes is already dozing off, but our girl, Kelly, yeah, she’s– she’s begging to play another game.
Liam: Yeah, well, I’m sure the adrenaline hasn’t worn off yet. When it does though…
Steffy: I’m gonna let her sleep in tomorrow. I may have to bribe her with those pancakes at a certain point to get up.
[ Liam chuckling ]
Liam: Well, if I recall correctly, those pancakes are worth getting up for at any hour.
Liam: I bet Eric’s really happy you and his grandkids are here.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. It’ll be nice for them to spend time with their great-grandfather. You know, I can tell when you have to say something.
[ Liam chuckling ]
Liam: Yeah, I should know better by now. Uh, it’s not– it’s just– um… all right, fine. I’m a little shocked that you actually did it. You took the kids and you left.
Steffy: I didn’t want to do it, Liam. I didn’t wanna pull the kids out of their home. But, I no longer feel that their safe there and I had no choice. Finn’s too vulnerable to Sheila.
Brooke: You are saying things are over between you and Liam, so where does that leave you and Thomas?
Hope: Oh, I don’t know, Mom. I’m just trying to concentrate on work.
Hope: What? I really am. I’m just trying to ride this wave of excitement and enthusiasm for Hope For The Future.
Brooke: With your lead designer.
Hope: Hey, um, what can I tell you, Mom? When I’m with Thomas, I don’t have to question that I am his everything and I cannot even tell you how good that feels. After years of feeling like– like I’m not enough for Liam. Years of having to beg for reassurance that his feelings weren’t divided and now? I just– I feel… free and I’m not saying this to disparage Liam, to say that he’s not a bad guy or that he doesn’t love me, I’m not saying any of that. I’m just– I don’t wanna be a part of it anymore.
Finn: You don’t blame Steffy for leaving me? How could you say that?
Li: I understand why Steffy felt she needed to protect her kids. Unfortunately, that meant leaving her home and you.
Finn: I’ve asked for your support, Mom.
Li: I won’t coddle you. Your wife wants to feel safe and protected. Finn, you’ve done just the opposite.
Finn: What? So, I’m not allowed to say one word in support of Sheila? I mean, she saved Kelly’s life.
Li: What? Are we supposed to forget everything because Sheila was in the right place at the right time? Finn, she shot you and Steffy and she tried to kill me as well. Steffy has very strong maternal instincts. She will do anything to protect Kelly and Hayes. What happened at that beach, outside the Judge’s chamber, Finn, it could never happen again. Not if you want to regain your wife’s trust.
Finn: My marriage can withstand Sheila and Liam. We’re strong enough.
Li: Don’t be a fool. Finn, honey, do not underestimate what is happening here. Steffy walked out! She left you because you made some terrible choices. But, I still think there’s hope. This is not the end. You will reunite with Steffy.
[ Finn sighing ]
Steffy: Leaving my home, walking out on Finn, I never thought that this could be a possibility, but I had to get the children out of there. As we know, Sheila could strike at any moment.
Liam: No, you absolutely did the right thing. I’ve been so concerned about all of you, but this is– this is– this is good. I mean, you guys are gonna be safer here. Eric’s already amped up security, plus everybody in this house has your best interest at heart.
Liam: That includes me, by the way. I’m gonna do everything I can to keep you and the kids safe, so.
Hope: I’m just stating a fact. Steffy has always played a big part in our marriage and I don’t know, maybe I– maybe I brought it on with my insecurities or some kind of self-fulfilling prophecy, but whatever it is, I just– I don’t want to be a part of it anymore. And right now, I have never felt more energized or alive, and quite frankly, I don’t even have the time to compete over someone’s affections, whether it’s with Steffy or anyone else, so.
Brooke: Oh, wow. Okay. I can understand why you don’t want love advice from me. I– I do, Hope. Sure, go ahead, you can get a divorce, but if you love somebody as much as I know you love Liam, you need to fight. You need to persevere.
Finn: Steffy! It’s me. It’s me! I found you! Steffy, it’s me. It’s really me.
Finn: Honey, I’m alive.
[ Bells tolling ]
Finn: We lost each other once. I’m not gonna let that happen again.
Steffy: Finn has always put the kids and me first. I hate that I’m even speaking poorly of my husband. I’ve always been able to trust him implicitly. Especially after everything we’ve been through. It made us closer, it made us stronger. That’s why his– his recent encounter with Sheila is so, so hurtful. She tried to take us away from our kids, our– our family. Like, what the hell was he doing? What the hell was he doing embracing her? How am I supposed to trust him now? Not to mention, our daughter almost drowned on his watch. Do you know what Finn actually said to me? He said that I should cut Sheila some slack.
Liam: Oh, boy.
Liam: Well, I’m sorry you’re going through this, having to doubt your own husband, but your feelings are valid and for what it’s worth, I’m just as shocked about Finn as you are. Just, hey. Just know something. I’m here and you get to lean on me because I’m not going anywhere, okay?
