Eric: Good morning, steffy.
Steffy: Good morning, granddad.
Eric: I’m fixing some coffee for you. You want some?
Steffy: I would love some. I didn’t really sleep that well last night.
Eric: I don’t imagine you did.
[ Steffy sighing ]
Steffy: Hayes fell asleep right away. Kelly wanted to play all night.
Eric: Well, I’m very happy they’re enjoying this art project outside so much.
Steffy: Yeah, enjoying a beautiful day outside. Thank you so much for everything, granddad.
Eric: Of course. You and the kids are welcomed here anytime you want. I love having you here. I just wish it was under better circumstances. You don’t have to explain those circumstances to me until your dad gets here, but I just– I want you to know that you and the kids are safe here anytime you want. This is your home, too.
Steffy: Thank you.
Ridge: Hey, you two.
Eric: Ridge, hey. We’re having a coffee. You want some?
Ridge: I’m okay. My daughter summoned me, so here I am. What’s up?
Steffy: Okay, there’s– uh, there’s something I wanted to fill you in on. Something happened that you don’t know about. Look, the bottom line is, the kids and I are going to be living here for a while.
Finn: Who’s the brilliant artist?
Kelly: Me. I drew it to make you come home. I missed you, finn.
[ Finn sighing ]
Finn: 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: Nothing is more
important to me
than you and our children.
I love you.
You have to believe that.
Don’t take the kids, okay?
Don’T. Don’T. I’m begging you.
Please don’t walk out the door.
[ Knocking on door ]
Rj: What’s up? How are you? I was, uh– I was just headed to paradise cove, so I thought I’d stop by and, uh, say hi to you and steffy and the kids. Are they around?
Finn: Uh, no. No, they’re not.
Rj: Okay. Are they down by the beach or something? I was thinking maybe later we could go grab some lunch, if you– if you’re interested.
Finn: They’re gone, rj. They left.
Wyatt: I can’t believe kelly almost drowned. I mean, I’m– I’m– I’m so glad she’s okay. I– I just– I’m sorry this happened to you, man.
Liam: You– this happened or that finn allowed it to happen?
Wyatt: Why would he take his eyes off her at the beach?
Liam: I don’t know, man. I don’t– I don’t even know. Could you imagine how terrified she was, though? Like, if we had lo– if we had lost her that day–
Wyatt: I don’t even want to think about that. Just thank god finn was there. He realized and then–
Liam: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no, no, no, no. No, wasn’t finn. No, wasn’t finn. It was sheila. Yeah. Sheila pulled my daughter out of the water.
Rj: Finn, what do you mean that they’re gone? I thought because of the whole sheila situation, you decided to keep the kids home from– from camp, right? Until you found a new nanny?
Finn: Yeah, that– that was the plan.
Rj: Well, hey, I don’t mind entertaining them. I’m– I’m free, you know, if you need help with anything. I know you guys are up to your ears with work and everything else.
Finn: She’s going to have plenty of help at her granddad’s house. That’s where steffy went after she took the kids and left.
Rj: She… left? And you’re saying she, like, she walked out on you? Why? What happened? Why would my sister do something like that?
Finn: Because of liam.
Liam: Yep. Yep. Apparently, sheila was at the beach that day and she got to kelly first.
Wyatt: What? Was she sunbathing? I don’t understand. Why was she there?
Liam: I think you know the answer to that.
Wyatt: Of course. Finn.
Ridge: So, you’re moving in here? Okay. Why?
Steffy: I left finn. I had to get the kids out of the house as fast as possible.
Eric: I saw how upset you were last night, but I had no idea it was something this big.
Steffy: I couldn’t stay there, granddad. It was too dangerous.
Ridge: Because of sheila? What happened?
Rj: Kelly’s my niece. She could have died. It was your job to keep her safe, finn.
Finn: I know, okay? And there’s no way that I can apologize enough. I am horrified about what could have happened.
Rj: Now, I see why steffy was so upset. That’s her little girl, you know? Is– is this why she walked out on you? Is this why?
Finn: I wasn’t the one who saved kelly.
Rj: Well, who did?
Finn: Sheila. My mother saved kelly’s life.
Wyatt: Wow. I mean, this– this– this whole situation is crazy. Look, I’m glad kelly’s okay. That’s the most important thing here, but see, this– this proves that sheila’s just not going to stay away.
Liam: Oh, yeah. Oh, no, 100%. She’s barely, barely out of jail, and she’s already stalking finn and my daughter.
Wyatt: Yeah, I mean, look, I’m glad– I’m glad steffy made the decision to finally take the kids and get away because that’s just– honestly, that’s the right thing to do here.
Liam: Yeah, no, the kids– the kids are okay. They’re going to be safe at eric’s, which is really, you know, all I care about.
Liam: But whether finn wants to admit it or not, he is– he is a magnet for sheila, especially after hugging her, you know, like, sending that message. Now, she’s really gonna– she’s not gonna give up on being in his life. And– and so, thankfully, steffy and I are on the same page now. There’s– there’s no way we’re letting that monster anywhere near our family.
Ridge: What was finn thinking?
Eric: Wait, he– he took his eyes off kelly for a phone call?
Steffy: Finn is horrified about what happened, and thank god kelly is okay. But that’s only a part of the story. Finn didn’t save kelly.
Ridge: What do you mean?
Steffy: Sheila was there.
Ridge: What– what do you mean sheila was there?
Steffy: Sheila rescued kelly. Finn swears he had no idea that she was there.
Ridge: But she was there? She was watching them?
Steffy: I– I guess. I don’t know. I’m still trying to process all of it. I– I can’t believe that my daughter is alive because of sheila, that awful human being who tried to kill me and the people that I love. And after everything that happened, finn is actually defending sheila. He says that I should cut that psychopath some slack.
Eric: Cut her some slack?
Steffy: He called sheila his mother. Look, I– I love my husband. I– I really do, but he admits, he admits that he has a connection to his birth mother. And honestly, I don’t think it’s ever going to go away. After everything sheila has done to me and my family, I just… I can’t live with that.
The thought of getting screened
Rj: Well, thank god she’s okay. It could have been a lot different, finn.
Finn: I know, okay? It was all my fault. I keep seeing it play over and over in my mind. It’s terrifying.
Rj: Well, the fact that sheila was involved– yeah, I understand why steffy walked out.
Finn: Yeah, well, liam? He’s stoking it. He’s using the fact that sheila’s my birth mom to try and break up my marriage.
Rj: Finn, what are you talking about?
Finn: How did you even know
about that? You weren’t there.
Steffy: Liam told me.
Finn: Liam told you?
Steffy: He followed you.
He saw you and sheila together.
Finn: So he just–
he told you everything?
I mean, he must have loved
Steffy: He didn’t just
tell me, finn.
He showed me.
Finn: What are you
Steffy: He recorded it
on his phone.
Finn: Liam has it out for me. He wants steffy back, so he’s doing everything he can to undermine my marriage to your sister. I’m not going to let him get away with it.
Wyatt: You and steffy seem to be a united front when it comes to sheila.
Liam: Why you got to– why you got to do that? Why you got to make it sound like that’s a– a surprise?
Wyatt: I’m not surprised. I’m just– I’m happy. But, uh, what about, uh, finn? Does steffy feel the same way that you do about her husband?
Liam: Obviously, steffy and my number one priority is keeping the kids safe. And obviously, finn has proven he’s not capable of helping us do that, so.
Wyatt: Right, but, dude, you got to admit that things are a little complicated here with your feelings, right? You– you kissed steffy twice. Once back in rome, and then recently when you got back to L.A.
Liam: Yeah, there’s– yes, there’s a lot of history there. And– and I will continue to love steffy very much, which I have been honest with you about.
Liam: But god’s honest truth, man, I’m not– I wasn’t– I really wasn’t trying to break up their marriage. It was just a– it was a moment, you know? And I even– I– I told steffy, like, I will never do that again.
Wyatt: Fact of the matter is, she still walked out on finn, so there’s that.
Liam: Okay, yeah, but, bro, the whole situation is different now. I mean, like, new information came out, right? So for me, I’m just– I’m, like, tunnel vision. I’m laser focused on– on– on keeping steffy and kelly and hayes safe.
Wyatt: Right. And I get that. But, dude, I’m just saying, maybe deep down, somewhere, you realize there’s an opportunity here that you could possibly reunite with steffy.
Eric: Sweetheart, I’m sorry you’re having to go through all this. I am. I’m so glad that kelly’s okay. All right?
Eric: You can stay here as long as you need to. I love you. And selfishly, I’m very glad to have you here under– under my roof.
Steffy: Thank you. And I love you, too. I feel safe here.
Eric: You are safe here. Okay?
Eric: I’ll make sure that you have everything you need. I’ll give you two some time alone, and, uh, I’ll let the staff know you’re going to be staying. Okay.
[ Steffy sighing ]
Ridge: I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.
Steffy: Oh, it’s just– it’s just a lot. Oh, it’s a lot.
Ridge: It’s a lot.
Steffy: Yeah. So afraid for my children. The thought of kelly losing–
Ridge: Hey, kelly’s fine. You’re fine. You did the right thing coming here. Don’t doubt that. We’ll get through this. The way we always do. As a family. Scout is protected by simparica trio,
Ridge: Dad is right. You’re safe here. How about this? How about I move in and help with the kids?
Steffy: I appreciate that, but I think you want to stay close to brooke.
Ridge: No. Kids are more important. She would understand that. She would do the same for her children.
Steffy: I really appreciate the offer, but I’m– I’m fine. I’m just emotionally gutted right now. My head is spinning. Everything’s just moving so quickly.
Ridge: You know finn’s going to hear from me, right?
Ridge: How does he take his eyes off his daughter at the beach? How do you do that?
Steffy: Look, dad, there’s something else you need to know. I didn’t want to say it in front of granddad. I just… okay, when– when sheila was released, when she walked out of the courtroom, finn followed her and… he embraced her.
Ridge: He did what?
Steffy: He hugged sheila, his mother.
Ridge: And you know that how? You saw it? He– he told you?
Steffy: No, liam did. Liam took a video of it and he showed me. He said he was picking up this weird vibe from finn in the judge’s chambers. And when finn left, liam followed. And that’s when he saw finn and sheila.
Steffy: Yeah. I– I wanted to believe in my husband. I– I really did. Like, there was some kind of explanation.
Ridge: How do you explain that? How?
Steffy: I don’t know. I don’t know. After what happened with kelly at the beach, I– I don’t know how I’m supposed to trust my husband. With finn, sheila’s always going to be part of our lives.
Ridge: I’m sorry.
Steffy: Yeah. Me, too.
Ridge: What happens now?
Finn: I know what you’re doing.
Liam: What’s that? Looking out for my daughter and her mother because you can’t?
Finn: No, no, believe me, I can take care of my family just fine.
Liam: Really, finn? Really? Because you almost got my daughter killed. She was about to drown. Steffy and I would have lost her because of you.
Finn: I know, okay? Believe me. No one feels worse about what happened than I do.
Liam: Okay. So, what do you– what do you want from me? Like, am I supposed to feel gratitude toward your psychopath mother for this? Like, what?
Finn: Sheila has done terrible things. Believe me, okay? I know firsthand. But she is the reason why kelly’s alive.
Liam: Finn. Do you– do you hear yours– the woman shot you. She shot you! She shot your wife! And you’re still– you’re still here defending her. I mean, you’re– you’re even embracing her physically.
Finn: See, the– there it is. There it is, liam. Exactly. You took that video and you didn’t come confront me about it. No, you ran straight to steffy and showed it to her, didn’t you, you little puke? I know what you want, liam.
Liam: Yeah, I’m– I’m– I’m sure you do. What I want is for steffy to have all the information so she can start making decisions to protect our kids.
Finn: That’s not the only reason! We both know that. Your marriage to hope is ending, but that does not give you the right to just cycle back and make a play for my wife and try and interfere with my marriage.
Liam: Finn, all due respect, you are doing this on your own and at least steffy has taken the kids somewhere safe.
Finn: Steffy and i love each other. We’re committed to each other. And like before, we’re gonna do whatever it takes to get over whatever obstacles come our way together. You think that you have, like, this– this in with her and this– this– this history, and you exploit that! But that’s all it is, liam. It’s ancient history. She’s with a real man now and I’m not going to let you interfere with my marriage, so you need to stay away from steffy. You need to stay away from my wife!
