Ridge: You know what I love even more than your company?
Eric: What’s that?
Ridge: Your wine. Nice, expensive, very good.
Eric: Yeah. It is, it is.
Eric: I’m glad we have some left.
Steffy: Granddad, please tell donna she didn’t have to go through all that trouble getting the kids all the toys and clothes. Oh, my gosh. She has great taste though.
Eric: She does.
Steffy: They’re going through the pile right now, they’re in heaven.
Eric: She loves this. I mean, she loves having you here with the kids. She loves it as much as I do.
Steffy: Well, I’m really grateful to both of you for opening up your home to me and the children.
Eric: No, it’s your home. It’s your home, too. For as long as you need.
Ridge: Thank you, dad. Their safety is the most important thing right now.
Eric: I agree. It’s– it’s so alarming that sheila’s a free woman again. I can’t believe it. We’ve increased the security around forrester and we doubled it around the house here, so.
Eric: I just can’t believe that you– you don’t feel safe in your own home, safe and secure. With finn.
Finn: Either panel come back yet? He’s still tachy? Okay, um…
[ Knocking on door ] …Just order another ct scan to be safe. Okay. Thank you. Hey.
Finn: Thanks for, uh, thanks for coming.
Rj: Yeah. Yeah, no problem. I’m still trying to just understand everything that’s going on, you know?
Finn: Yeah. I’ll just say, I should never have taken my eyes off kelly.
Rj: Can’t imagine. Hey, but thank god she’s okay.
Finn: Yeah, I agree.
Rj: So, um, what’s up? Why do you– why did you want to see me?
Finn: I need your help with steffy.
Wyatt: And there it is! The contract dad agreed upon, after months of negotiation, it is finally done. And I gotta say, that’s gotta be one of our better deals this year.
Liam: Yeah, no, it’s good. It’s, like– it’s really good. I mean, no wonder dad was so happy on the phone.
[ Chuckling ]
Wyatt: Yeah, money has that effect on him. Um… [ Clears throat ] You know what else made him happy?
Wyatt: Is you finally opening up to him.
[ Laughing ]
Liam: Yeah, well, you know, he hasn’t missed much, just hope and me getting divorced and his granddaughter almost drowning and–
Wyatt: Yeah, steffy, uh, separating from finn, right?
Rj: You need my help with steffy?
Finn: I just… I’ve been so lost since she moved out with the kids and… I mean, there’s no stopping her.
Rj: I’m sorry, finn.
Finn: Yeah, but you know, your sister, when she makes up her mind, she makes up her mind, but this is all just… it’s just starting to settle in now, you know? My family’s separated and I miss them more than anything. And look, I take responsibility for the things that happened with sheila, but the thing is, steffy never would have moved out if it weren’t for liam.
Liam: I mean, am I– am I allowed to say I’m proud of steffy? Just for– you know, just for– for, you know, taking kelly and hayes and heading over to eric’s ’cause I know that couldn’t have been easy, but it was the right thing.
Wyatt: Yeah. Yeah, for their safety.
Liam: For their safety, exactly.
Wyatt: And, I mean, it could possibly give you another shot at steffy in the future.
Steffy: I hate taking kelly and hayes out of their home, away from finn.
Eric: You had no choice.
Ridge: No. We have to do what’s best for our kids, always.
Steffy: You’re right.
Taylor: Steffy? Ridge. Eric. Hi. Hi, baby.
Steffy: You– you came home?
Taylor: Yes. What, you think a conference is more important than you? Not a chance. Oh, honey, I am– I am so sorry to hear about everything that happened.
I have type 2 diabetes,
but I manage it well.
Rj: Yeah, yeah. You– you mentioned this before that you think liam’s the reason why steffy left. I don’t understand why though.
Finn: Do you know about the hearing yet?
Rj: Well, yeah. I know that sheila got let off.
Finn: No, about what happened after.
Rj: No, what?
Finn: After the hearing, once sheila was released, we embraced.
Rj: You what? Finn, why would you do that?
Finn: Look, I– I don’t know. It– sheila saw me and hugged me and something came over me and this connection with my birth mother.
[ Scoffs ]
Rj: Okay, uh, well, what did steffy say when you told her you did that?
Finn: See, that’s when liam comes in. Because I didn’t get a chance to tell her, he beat me to it.
Rj: He– I don’t understand, how did he–
Finn: Apparently, he followed me outside the judge’s chambers and decided to record me hugging sheila.
Finn: Yeah. And liam couldn’t wait to run to steffy to show it to her.
Wyatt: Look, I’m not trying to give you a hard time here, bro.
Liam: Look, this is– this is you not trying to give me a hard time, that’s what this is?
Wyatt: Come on, you know me better than that. I would never…
Liam: Yes, you would.
Liam: Yes, you would.
Wyatt: Yes, I would. Yeah. No, I’m just trying to get you to– to be honest with yourself, man. Like, you even said yourself, leaving steffy was one of the biggest mistakes of your life, right?
Liam: Yeah, I mean, it was.
Wyatt: There you go. And I’m proud of you for being able to admit that. But you could possibly rectify that mistake now that steffy’s away from finn and currently living at eric’S.
[ All laughing ]
Steffy: I can’t wait to try them! Kelly and hayes are baking muffins with donna in the kitchen. Mom, I really appreciate you being here. You didn’t have to come back so soon. I already kind of filled you in on everything when we talked.
Taylor: Okay, well, I wanted to come back. I’m your mom. You’re hurting right now, you need support, and I’m here.
Steffy: Thank you.
Steffy: I just want to make sure I’m being smart for the children. Making the right decisions.
Taylor: I know, honey, it’s a lot, this is all a lot. This is all a– a big shock, really, you know? You living here with eric.
Ridge: Well, they’re where they need to be.
Eric: I absolutely agree with that.
Ridge: You made the right choice coming here.
Taylor: And– and you don’t think that you should, you know, maybe get back home and try to work things out with finn? Host says the key is under the bizanguita cactus.
Rj: You’re treating this like it’s nothing. This isn’t nothing. You embraced sheila, you were sympathizing with her.
Finn: Hold on, we hugged, okay? I wasn’t sympathizing with her. Liam surreptitiously took that video on his phone and did he confront me about it? No, he immediately ran to steffy claiming he was looking out for the kids and herself.
Rj: Well, maybe that’s it, maybe he was just being protective.
Finn: Protective? Rj, my kids don’t need to be protected from me! I would never let anything happen to them, I love them more than my own life.
Rj: I realize that, okay? I’m just saying, do you really think right now liam is trying to sabotage your marriage?
Finn: I don’t think that, I know that. And I’m not going to let that little twerp get away with it.
Wyatt: Uh, for the record, I’m– I’m not telling you to bulldoze steffy’s marriage here, right? I’m not– I’m not– that’s not what I’m saying.
Liam: I know. I know that. I know that’s not what you’re saying.
Wyatt: Okay, good because i don’t want to be blamed for this whole rivalry that’s about to happen between you and finn.
Liam: Trust me, if it does happen, it ain’t going to be on you.
[ Laughs ]
Wyatt: No, I’m just– you know, looking at the situation, this– this– like, this– this whole thing is kind of aligning pretty perfectly for you, especially if you’re looking at another chance with steffy.
Liam: Yeah, only because finn’s being an idiot and not protecting his family.
Wyatt: Yeah, but come on, dude, you got to admit here, like, I think you’re still in love with steffy and you want a life with her again.
Ridge: Well, even dad didn’t want to hear this conversation.
Ridge: You chased him away.
Taylor: Oh, stop it, I did not, he’s just– he’s just giving us some privacy.
Ridge: Privacy for what? This is a conversation I would have with anybody. The kids are where they need to be.
Taylor: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, I’m just saying that I don’t know that steffy’s making the best choice packing up the kids and leaving her husband.
Ridge: Well, and I’m just saying that finn has a lot of things he needs to work through before she goes back there. You saw the security outside the house, right? It’s good, it’s safe here. They don’t have that at the cliff house. You know what they have at the cliff house? The possibility of crazy sheila popping out. It’s dangerous.
Taylor: No, I understand that. I– I do, but finn’s not gonna let anything happen to steffy and the kids.
Ridge: He already has! He hugged that crazy woman outside the courtroom. The cliff house is not an option.
Taylor: You know, I am– I am just advocating for our daughter’s marriage, okay? Finn messed up bad. I know that. But you know, steffy– steffy has a wonderful, devoted husband who loves her and only her… for better or worse. Postmenopausal women with hr+ her2-
Taylor: I’m telling you right now, I don’t think it’s a good idea for the kids to be away from– no!
Finn: Steffy, please don’t–
please don’t walk
out that door, okay?
I’m sorry for what happened
at the beach today with kelly.
You know how much I love you,
you know how much
I love our family.
Steffy: Of course I do,
but this is killing me.
I– I can’t live like this,
I can’t trust that you’ll keep
sheila away from us.
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?
I’m begging you,
please don’t walk out the door.
Ridge: What if I beef up security here? It’s not what we’re talking about–
Taylor: Ridge, you know– you know that– that steffy and our grandkids are my first priority.
Ridge: Sure, but you have a funny way of showing that.
Taylor: Okay, come on. That is not nice.
Ridge: You know what’s not nice?
Ridge: Sending steffy and the kids back to the cliff house when you know that sheila’s sniffing around.
Taylor: Wait a second. Finn said that he would not speak to sheila ever again.
Ridge: Finn said that?
Taylor: Oh, don’t do this right now. You know what? This is something that steffy and finn need to work through. It’s very simple.
Ridge: There’s nothing simple when that woman is involved.
Steffy: Can you please not argue over me please?
Both: We’re not arguing.
Ridge: Just trying to explain to your mom, your beautiful mother, why she’s wrong. No, and that’s– I’m sorry.
Ridge: Trying to explain to you why I’m right. Better. Listen. The last thing I want is for your marriage to fall apart. I know you love him, I know he loves you, but you gotta keep an open mind because what are you gonna do for the next I don’t know how many years? Just keep looking over your shoulder to see if sheila’s going to pop into your house or whatever? You can’T. She could be there at any moment.
Finn: Look, just the– the fact that liam would secretly record me hugging sheila and then run to steffy acting like he’s just some big hero?
Rj: Maybe he’s just worried, all right? Kelly’s his daughter, he’s got a right to be protective, finn.
Finn: He told me he loves her, rj, and that they share this incredible history.
Finn: Seriously. I’m not making this up. Okay, liam’s after my wife and he’s using this sheila situation to his advantage.
Rj: Well, I mean, steffy’s already freaked out that sheila’s freed though.
Finn: Look, rj, before I met your sister… uh, my life was– was– was pretty great. I had finished med school, I had gotten my dream job, I was helping people, I– I had accomplished pretty much everything I’d wanted to. Okay? And then one day… this incredible, beautiful, intelligent woman came into my hospital and I knew in a second that my life had just begun. Steffy’s it for me and I would do anything to keep her happy and to make sure she felt loves and to keep her safe. And that’s why it just… it just breaks my heart that she doesn’t feel safe here because of sheila. And I– I promised that I wouldn’t have anything to do with her and… I just– I screwed up, man, and I broke her trust and I’ve apologized and I’ve begged her to come home because it’s the only way to prove to her that I can protect my family. But she says that she can’t do that and I know that sheila is a– is a big reason for that, but I’m telling you, it’s liam, too.
Liam: I mean, you– you– you– you’re– you’re right.
Wyatt: I’m sorry, what?
Wyatt: What’d you just say?
Liam: You’re right.
Wyatt: Did you just say I was right?
Liam: Mm. I didn’t say–
Wyatt: Did you just say I was right?
Liam: Yes, you’re right, you’re– [ Groans ]
Wyatt: It sounds so good.
Liam: Yes, you’re right, I’m still very much in love with steffy and I always will be and I told her as much.
Liam: Not only did I tell her, I made little to no effort to hide it from finn either. Yes, I kissed steffy. Yes, I– I meant it. But I should not have done that. I mean, I– I was caught up, man, a lot of big, confusing feelings and the last thing that I want to do is interfere in somebody else’s marriage, much less steffy’S.
Wyatt: I know, but liam, that’s– you just said it. There were really intense emotions going on there, especially after what happened with hope, but remember, that all happened before finn and kelly went to the beach, that all happened before he decided to hug it out with that psycho.
Liam: Yeah, that’s true. The situation has definitely changed recently.
Liam: So, look, steffy’s, you know, she’s moved out, she’s over at eric’s, she’s doing her absolute best to hold it together just for the kids’ sake, which proves how incredible she is. Why did I– why did I ever let her slip through my fingers? My god, just… she can’t stay with finn. The way that he’s acting lately, I mean, he’s– he’s become a danger to steffy and the kids.
Finn: Look, steffy and i have overcome so much together and it’s only made us stronger. I almost lost your sister once and I’m not gonna go through that again. There’s no way I’m letting liam make a play for my wife.
Liam: Here’s what I do know.
Liam: I’ve only got one life to live and I want to live it with steffy and my daughter.
