Finn: I don’t want to spend another night apart. Steffy, this is killing me.

Steffy: Finn, this is killing me, too. I didn’t want this.

Finn: Then come home, okay? And we can work on this.

Steffy: I can’t–

Finn: Together.

Steffy: I can’t do that until I know sheila is no longer a threat. Until I know that you are not vulnerable to her anymore.

Finn: I’m not.

Steffy: I want to believe that.

Finn: Well, you should believe that because you are more important to me. I’m not going to let sheila come anywhere near to you or the kids, okay? Sheila is not the problem. Steffy, the truth is the person that’s coming between us, the real problem, it’s liam.

Ridge: I heard you and hope are getting a divorce.

Liam: Um, yeah.

Ridge: I’m sorry. I also heard that hope thinks steffy has a big part in that. That’s what I need to know. How you feel about my daughter.

Hope: So, how does the fabric feel? I mean, can you tell that it’s sustainable? Does it feel any different?

Skylar: Honestly, I can’t tell the difference.

Hope: Great. Okay. Can you give me a turn?

Rj: Beautiful.

Skylar: You don’t look too bad yourself.

Hope: Oh, hi, rj.

Rj: Hola.

Hope: Weird. Um, they’ll be expecting you in alterations. Thank you so much.

Rj: What alterations? I wouldn’t change a thing.

[ Hope clears throat ]

Hope: Are you sure you don’t want to be a designer because, I don’t know, you seem to work pretty well with the models.

Rj: I think I’m good doing what I’m doing now. Plus, I wouldn’t want to, you know, step on thomas’s toes. So, what’s going on between you two?

Rj: Yeah. Yeah. A lot’s happened since everybody got back home from rome. Mom and dad are back together. That’s crazy. And, uh, you and thomas are–

Hope: Working to build on the success of our preview.

Rj: Come on, I’m your brother, all right? You can talk to me about anything. I know that the reason why you and liam are ending your marriage has a lot to do with what happened with thomas in rome. You don’t have to talk about that, okay? I just want to talk about you and if you’re doing okay.

Ridge: I don’t want to put you on the spot. Maybe I do want to put you on the spot. You’re– you’re a father just like me. And right now my daughter is scared. Sheila’s running around and… finn, for whatever reason, he can’t cut the cord and now steffy has moved out of the house, she’s taken the kids and I guess I just want to– want to see what–

Liam: What are my intentions?

Ridge: Yeah.

Finn: Look, I’m not trying to excuse my behavior, okay? I know that I need to regain your trust, but liam, he’s the real threat to our marriage here.

Steffy: Finn, I moved out of our home because of sheila, not because of liam.

Finn: Because he admitted to my face that he’s still in love with you. That I have no idea what the two of you once shared. He still wants you back, steffy. But you… you deserve someone who treats you as their one and only. So, don’t let him back into your head, okay? Don’t let him come between us.

Hope: There’s really nothing more to say about liam and me.

Rj: So, you’re just going to give up? You’re not going to fight?

Hope: We already signed the papers.

Rj: Well, then tear them up. It’s not official yet. You don’t have to go through with this, hope.

Hope: You’re not understanding me. Like I said, it isn’t just one thing. It’s not just about my involvement with thomas. It’s also about liam and his unwillingness to fight for our relationship. His inability to forgive. I mean, his love for steffy.

Rj: What are you talking about?

Hope: Come on, rj. I mean, you know that steffy has always been a presence in our marriage and I– I tried to ignore it and just convinced myself that steffy was liam’s past and I was his future, but deep down, I think I always knew that liam would have feelings for steffy, and he probably always will.

Ridge: You know what I’m doing, right? I’m– I’m just protecting my daughter.

Liam: What do you know? I’m trying to do the same thing. That really is all I’m thinking about lately. Just how– how to protect steffy and kelly and hayes, too. It’s– it’s just wild to me. It’s really wild that– that finn has effectively invited sheila back into all our lives.

Ridge: Oh, that’s wild to me too.

Liam: And by the way– by the way, I never had an issue with him until this. It’s just when all this went down, I started thinking… how do I let him anywhere near my family?

Ridge: And we’re back to the original question.

Liam: Back to the original, right. How do I feel about steffy?

Ridge: She’s alone now. She left finn. So, what do you– thinking of reuniting? Is that what you want? You want her back?

Steffy: This is not about liam. This is about sheila and your inability to cut all ties with her.

Finn: Steffy, I will never allow sheila to hurt you or the kids. I’m not a threat because of her.

Steffy: You said that you have a connection to her, finn. Something you can’t even explain.

Finn: Well, she’s my birth mother, so it’s–

Steffy: I don’t care! I don’t care! She shot you. She shot me. She almost left our children without their parents. God, she’s an evil, disgusting woman. She’s terrorized my family. My god! Finn, do you think it was easy for me? Do you think it was easy for me to take the children and walk out the door and stay here with my grandfather? No, it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do.

Finn: Yeah, but steffy, you didn’t have to go. I was–

Steffy: I had no choice. They are my babies. And as their mother, it is my job to keep them safe. Sheila is a threat to our family. And you, obviously have conflicted feelings towards her. You can’t tell me that you don’T. So, I had to leave. I had to get out of that house, finn. That house, our home, I couldn’t stay there. The children are my first priority.

that keeps you dry?

Rj: So, you really think that there’s no chance for you and liam?

Hope: I hate to say it, but I’m afraid not. Especially now that steffy has left finn.

Liam: I don’t really know how to answer that question. Okay. Do– okay. Do I view what’s happening between steffy and finn as some kind of, like, opening for me to– to– to move in on her? No. Categorically no. I– I– I hate that steffy is going through this though. And I’m angry with finn for– for putting steffy and her family in danger.

Ridge: Do you love her?

Liam: Yes, of course. Yes, of course, I love– yes, I love her and I’m always going to love her. And I– and I even– I told her that recently.

Ridge: You did?

Liam: So this– this whole thing, you know, it’s– it’s been scary for me too, right? Almost losing my daughter and sheila on the loose and I just– this– I was just letting steffy know that I’m– I’m around if she needs anything and– and– and I’m still going to do everything I can to protect her and… yeah, I love her.

Ridge: Finn is not going to like that.

Liam: No, he– he didn’t like it. He– he already knows. I– I told him. Um… I think you know this, I– I don’t have a poker face when it comes to steffy. I’m not– and I’m not– I don’t owe him hiding my feelings for her or anyone else, really. I just… she’s a remarkable woman, ridge. And she’s kelly’s mom. So, do I want her back? I mean, that’S… I don’t know how the hell I ever let her go.

Finn: It kills me.

[ Steffy sighing ] It kills me that you think that I’m a threat to the kids.

Steffy: I never wanted to feel this way, finn. I never thought I could. But it scares me. I’m– I’m terrified. I don’t– I don’t know what sheila’s going to do next. I feel like I can’t breathe sometimes. Like, I have so much anxiety. I just– like, do you even understand what I’m going through right now?

Finn: It’s exactly what I feel when I think about losing you and the kids.

Steffy: No, you don’t understand. Like, I– I lay in bed sometimes and if I hear the slightest noise, I go running to the children’s room, making sure that they’re okay. Making sure that sheila is not there trying to take them. Like I– I feel like I can– I can never let my guard down now knowing that she is out there. Have you seen her again?

Finn: Steffy, no.

Steffy: Has she reached out to you?

Finn: No!

Steffy: You know that she can’t be part of our lives again.

Finn: Steffy, I agree.

Steffy: Do you?

Finn: Yes, I agree. And I’m so sorry. I’m– I’m sorry for all of this. Honey, please. You got to forgive me.

hair growth.

Ridge: You want to know how you ever let her go? I can tell you that story.

Liam: Yeah, I know you can. She changed my life, you know. I mean, literally, she made me who I am. Kinda grew up together. She taught me a lot. She taught me to just kind of embrace the adventure. Like, it’s like, “it’s okay, liam. Like, you know, you don’t– you don’t always have to know exactly where you’re going all the time because half the fun is just… seeing where you land.” It was like… it was like we could see the life that we wanted in each other. It was intoxicating… just to be so desperately in love that– that nothing else mattered. And then, we learned something else. We learned what it’s like to hurt the one you love most. What it is to be hurt. Really hurt. We made mistakes, man. And still, the biggest one for me was– was– it was walking away. It was not trusting in the foundation that our love had built. I mean, I had this– I had this woman in my life and she was strong and she was smart and she was beautiful and she loved me… liam. And I walked away. I– I– I– I don’t know what’s going to happen, ridge. I– I don’t know how the story ends… but I know there’s no chapter ahead where I make that mistake again.

Ridge: Okay.

Notes on a page

have all been arranged

trying to find the words

to say

what I’ve been thinking

I spent all night

working so hard to write

but by the time

I got it right

I looked, you were gone

well, the melody was perfect

but all the while

I was blind

without someone to listen

there’s no reason or rhyme

and now I write here alone

so you’ll finally know

how you and I became

the song that never played

Finn: Look, I know that I’ve let you down, okay? But I will spend the rest of my life trying to make it up to you if you’ll just let me.

Steffy: Finn, I can see that you’re hurting… hate that I’m causing you pain. I never wanted to take the kids and bring them here but… I had no choice. I no longer felt safe there. Seeing you embracing sheila outside the judge’s chamber and then finding out what happened to kelly at the beach. Like, I– that was terrifying.

Finn: Look, I understand, okay? It was terrifying for me too, but thank god that kelly’s okay. I don’t know if I could live with myself if something happened to her. Steffy, you’re right. I was wrong to make sheila out to be some– some hero and ask you to cut her some slack. I was stupid.

Steffy: How could you ask me to do that?

Finn: I don’t know. I don’t know, I think I was just caught up in the emotion of it and the enormity of it, but it was wrong. Okay? And I’m sorry. But most importantly… I’m sorry for taking my eyes off kelly. You know, and that– that– that haunts me.

Steffy: But what about outside the judge’s chambers? You hugging sheila? Like, why– why… why did you– why did you do that? Do you want sheila to be free? Do you no longer think that she deserves to be in prison for the rest of her life?

Finn: Yeah, of course I think she needs to be in prison, steffy. And I– I can’t explain what happened in that moment. It’s just– something came over me, but you got to believe me and you got to know that that’ll never happen again. ‘Cause you– you are the– you’re the love of my life. You’re the love of my life and my world. My world was empty before you walked into it. And I’m so sorry for making you feel unsafe. But you just– you got to give me another chance, okay? You got to let me prove to you that you can count on me and that I’ll always put you and the kids first ’cause I miss you. And I miss our kids. I miss our family. And look, I know we were apart once before and I never want to be apart from you again. So please… can you come home?
