Liam: You can’t tell me how to protect my family, finn.
Finn: Steffy is not your family.
Liam: Yes, she is. She really, really is. We have a daughter together. You– you’re the one who just said we share this history. I’m not denying that. That history runs deep.
Finn: She’s my wife.
Liam: Yes, and me respecting that fact is not the same as me respecting you putting my daughter in danger. So, I’m asking myself, how am i supposed to trust you with her? I don’t know that you will keep sheila away from her and steffy agrees.
Finn: Yeah, and steffy and I, we’re going to work through that together as a family. So, I’m warning you, liam, you need to stay away from my wife.
Steffy: Based on these numbers, we’re still reaping the benefits of the hope for the future preview. Rome was definitely money well spent.
Ridge: Well, katie and her team did a real good job promoting it.
Steffy: Yeah. Have to make sure to thank her. She’s doing a lot of hard work.
[ Steffy sighing ]
Ridge: You think it was the right choice coming to the office?
Steffy: No, it is. It is. It’s a– it’s a good distraction.
Ridge: Taking the kids away from finn was very difficult, I’m sure.
Steffy: Yeah. Feels like my heart is just ripped out of my chest. I’m just running on adrenaline.
Ridge: Yes. But you know, you– you did the right thing moving to dad’s house, right? Kids are safe.
Steffy: Saw all the beefed up security downstairs. Thank you for that.
Ridge: Sheila’s a real threat and I know how you protect your kids. I’d do the same.
Steffy: I appreciate everything you’re doing, dad.
Ridge: You know you’re loved, right? I will always be here for you.
Steffy: Thank you, dad. I feel good at granddad’s, I really do. And I know the children will be safe there.
Ridge: You can count on it.
Steffy: All right. Let’s get to work.
Brooke: The interview was amazing.
Hope: I know, a five-page spread.
Hope: Hi. I’m sorry, we didn’t– we didn’t realize that you would be in today.
Steffy: Why not?
Hope: Well, we just assume with, you know, everything that’s happening with sheila that you might want to work from home.
Steffy: Well, I can’t hide from the world forever. Life goes on.
Brooke: Uh, it seems like we might be interrupting something, so we can just come back.
Hope: Is– is everything okay? Are you okay?
Steffy: Well, you might as well know what’s going on. It’s going to get out eventually.
Steffy: I’ve taken the kids and I’ve moved into my grandfather’s house.
Hope: S– so, what does this mean exactly? You left finn?
Liam: Look, I get it. I know it’s got to hurt with steffy and the kids away.
Finna: Got to hurt? Liam, you have no idea how much I love steffy.
Liam: I actually do. I know a lot about loving steffy. (Buzz) we’re such great friends we should have a nickname,
Hope: I can’t believe that sheila saved kelly.
Brooke: What was sheila doing at the beach in the first place?
Steffy: Finn says he doesn’t know. He said it wasn’t planned or anything.
Ridge: It doesn’t matter if it was planned or not. She always finds a way back into his life.
Steffy: And my daughter’s life. Look, I’ll do whatever I can to protect them. That’s why I left and went to my grandfather’S.
Hope: But why do you feel like you have to protect them from finn? I mean, he’s your husband. That’s hayes’s father. You don’t actually think that he would hurt them, do you?
Steffy: Not intentionally, hope, but you didn’t see the video. He was clinging on to sheila like he did not want to let go. And then what happened yesterday with my daughter at the beach? My god.
Brooke: Well, glad she’s okay. I can only imagine what she must be feeling.
Steffy: It kills me to say this, but I don’t think I can trust finn to keep sheila away from us. Everything that’s happened recently, I just– I can’T.
Ridge: You’re doing the right thing.
Steffy: Oh, I am. I will do everything I can to protect kelly and hayes.
Brooke: And you have to think about protecting yourself too. Sheila did shoot you and shoot her own son.
Steffy: That’s why this is so confusing. Finn said he has this weird connection to sheila. I– I don’t know how she’s done it. I– I don’t know after everything she’s done to us, it’s like she’s gotten in his head.
Brooke: She is his birth mother, so maybe there’s some sort of natural innate draw to her.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, it breaks my heart.
Ridge: It doesn’t matter what the draw is. It puts all of us in danger and we can’t have that.
Finn: You know all about loving steffy? You better watch your mouth. You know what? You don’t know anything about true love. All right, you take advantage, and if you think I’m going to just sit back while you try to destroy my family–
Liam: Finn, steffy and i were a family once, too. We share a daughter together. We were very much in love. Now, those feelings evolve, but they don’t just magically disappear.
Finn: Man, you have an ego! You’re talking about my wife.
Liam: Okay. Whether you believe it or not, this is not about me breaking up you and steffy. This is about me protecting my family and yes, steffy is a part of my family.
Finn: I don’t believe for a second that this is about safety. You want steffy back. Your marriage to hope is imploding, so you’re doing what you always do. You’re running back to steffy. That’s why you took the video of sheila. I mean, you showed it to her.
Liam: No, I showed her the video so that she could make an informed decision, yes, about the safety of our daught– dude, you had your arms around the psychopath who tried to murder your wife, the mother of your child. This– this– this is the same woman th telling me to stay away from? Where are your priorities? If– if the roles were reversed, would you have kept quiet? Honestly? Would you? Would you keep that to yourself?
Finn: Liam, this has been going on. You’ve been trying to make steffy feel sorry for you ever since hope started making eyes at thomas. So don’t give me any of this.
Liam: You know what? I give up. I don’t care. All right, I’m not going to convince you. I don’t care what you think. I had no issue with you at all until I witnessed, with my own eyes, this connection between you and sheila, okay? Just why is this so hard for you? Just admit that you messed up! That’s it! You didn’t just embrace sheila physically. You embraced her emotionally and that choice put my daughter and steffy and yes, even your own son in jeopardy. Why would I let you continue to do that? (Vo) crabfest is back at red lobster.
Hope: This is shocking. I mean, you and finn, you seem so solid.
Steffy: Yeah, that’s how I felt. At least until sheila came back into the picture. Sheila, being finn’s birth mother, I mean, it has been difficult. Whether I wanted to admit it or not. You know, it’s been an obstacle for us. That didn’t mean I– I didn’t love him and want to be with him. This whole situation just kills me.
Ridge: Well, moving out was necessary. You did what you had to do.
Brooke: I understand your feelings, but finn is your husband and he must be devastated.
Steffy: Oh, he is devastated. And so am I. He’s a wonderful father. He’s an incredible man. And like I said, I– I love him. That– that hasn’t changed.
Ridge: Okay, but there’s still this– this weakness when it comes to his mother. He can’t stay away from her.
Steffy: Yeah, I know, it’s terrifying.
Brooke: She is a sociopath, a master manipulator.
Ridge: And a threat to all of us and we will deal with this in our way, but right now I got to take care of my family, my kids, my grandkids and that means no contact with sheila. No hugging outside the courtroom. I gotta make sure your husband knows that. Excuse me.
[ Door shutting ]
Hope: Steffy, I’m– I’m so sorry that you’re having to go through this. I mean, I know a little bit about what it feels like when your entire life implodes and, um, I mean, I know liam must be worried about you and kelly.
Steffy: Yeah, he’s fiercely protective of kelly. But just to be clear, I– I… my decision to leave finn has nothing to do with liam. Okay?
Hope: Okay. But I mean, you also have to know that if it really is over between you and finn, that liam will probably be waiting there in the wings.
Finn: It– it is just so obvious that you’re trying to sabotage my relationship with steffy, but guess what, liam? You’re forgetting one thing, she loves me. She loves our family. She won’t walk away from that.
Liam: Finn, I know she loves you. But guess what? She loves her children more than anything and she can’t trust you right now. Why would she? You put her and everything that she cares about at risk because you refuse to walk away from this sick connection you have to sheila.
Finn: You need to hear me. I am not going to allow you to take my family away from me. You need to stay away from steffy.
Liam: Finn, I am hearing you, but steffy is kelly’s mother. I’m not walking away, I’m sorry.
Finn: You are so unbelievable. See, you– you– you act all righteous and honorable, but you are so– you are so toxic. You’re blatantly using my birth mother as a way to manipulate my wife against me.
Liam: Okay. All right. Here’s– here’s what I’m using, finn. I’m using the truth and the truth is you can’t be trusted right now. That’s a fact. And on top of everything else, you put my daughter at risk. Kelly almost drowned because of you.
Finn: I’m a doctor, liam. I save lives every day. No one’s more conscientious than me. And guess what? Kelly’s okay. She’s fine. So stop using what happened at the beach as an excuse to go after my wife. You are not going to have a future with steffy. I won’t allow it.
Liam: How about this? You never saw what steffy and I had. You weren’t around. So, how would you know? But it was extraordinary and I gave it up.
Finn: Yeah. Yeah, you did. And she’s so much better for it. I’m not going to allow you… to take steffy away from me. She’s the best thing that ever happened to me. I’ve been waiting for someone like her my whole life. So, any idea that you have, any thought of a future with her, you need to put that out of your mind. I won’t let it happen. (Rebecca) this can’t be real. that in the past, hearing that from steffy probably would have sent me into a tailspin worrying about how liam would react and what it would mean for our marriage, but I have to say, it is a relief not to be bogged down in that drama now.
Brooke: You say that like you don’t care that your marriage is coming to an end.
Hope: Of course, I care, mom. I never wanted this for myself or for my children, but I also can’t live in regret. I have to move forward. I have to be excited about something, like my line. I have so many new ideas, like I– I want to change the messaging and really capitalize off of the success of rome.
Brooke: And what if liam wants to be with steffy?
Hope: Well, I think you and I both know it’s not going to be that easy. There is no way finn is going to give up his marriage without a fight.
Finn: Come on, steffy. Come on, why aren’t you texting me back?
[ Knocking on door ]
[ Door clicks open ]
Ridge: I talked to someone at the nurse’s station. They told me where to find you.
Finn: Look, ridge, I know why you’re here and you can just– you can save your breath. You’re not going to tell me anything I haven’t already heard.
Ridge: Let’s find out, shall we? I trusted you with my daughter’s happiness and with her safety, and you failed on both counts, so, um, it’s a problem for me.
Liam: Okay, well, I’ll add it to the list of problems I’m dealing with right now.
Ridge: Explain something to me. You– you’re sitting there with a little bit of an attitude and I don’t get it. You created this problem. You let sheila back into your life. You put a little girl in danger. So, what’s going on with you? What are you doing?
Steffy: Thanks, donna. One scoop. Don’t let them talk you into any more.
[ Engine revving ]
Liam: Uh, door was open. Also, I– I just saw donna leaving with the kids.
Steffy: Oh, no, I totally forgot that you wanted to take kelly this afternoon.
Liam: No, no. It’s okay. It’s okay. You got a lot on your mind. Um, also, uh, gives us a chance to chat. I– um, I just had a visit from finn.
Steffy: What happened?
Liam: No, it’s– it’s– it’s all right, it’s okay. Uh, no blood was shed, I promise. Uh, the only reason I bring it up is because I said something to him and I just– I– I think you should probably know about it.
Steffy: Look, I know that you’re determined to protect me, kelly, and hayes and I appreciate that but–
Liam: No, yeah, of course, I’m– I’m going to do everything in my power to– to make sure all of you are safe. And I told finn as much, but that’s not– that’s not all I said. Um…
[ Laughs ] I told him because it’s true… that I love you and I know a lot about loving you because I spent most of my adult life in love with you. I mean, we made a beautiful, smart, inquisitive little girl out of that love and you don’t– you don’t just forget a love like that. I know I haven’T. And if I had to bet, I would say you haven’t either… because it’s in you. I mean, it– it becomes a part of your dna. And… I’m a part of you, you’re a part of me. I– I don’t– I don’t think that’s ever going to change. Here’s– here’s what I’m saying. I want you to know that I know I was a fool to let you go. And– and if I ever got a chance at a do-over… I wouldn’t make that mistake again. I don’t think I’d ever let you go again.
