Finn: Thanks, by the way, for going all the way over there and helping steffy and the kids get settled.
Taylor: Of course, that’s what moms do to keep their kids safe. That’s what steffy is doing right now. You know, this can’t go on, finn, right?
Finn: Oh, I realize that. I mean, all I want is for them to be home with me. Safe and healthy.
Taylor: Yeah. Well, they– they wanna come home, but steffy knows that they are safer in europe because sheila is nowhere around them. You’re dangerously close to losing steffy. Do you understand that? So, you need to do whatever you can to get sheila carter out of your life.
Deacon: Don’t go.
Sheila: Deacon, don’T.
Deacon: Stay. Even if it’s just for a little bit longer.
Sheila: What are you saying?
Brooke: Who are you texting?
Ridge: Steffy. Just checking on her.
Brooke: Oh, you miss her.
Ridge: I do. Of course, I miss her. Miss her every day. And I know why she’s gone. I get it. Strong, amazing woman, you know. But– but to me, she’s always gonna be my little girl and I wanna protect her. I wanna make sure that she’s okay. That her kids are okay. I want them to grow up looking at me the way that my kids looked at my dad. I can’t do that now because she’s 6,000 plus miles away. We all know why.
Brooke: I’m sorry. I know that you’ve been worried about steffy, kelly, and hayes now that sheila is on the loose again.
Ridge: Yeah, it’s not right. This is not what it should be. She should be home with us, with her family. Finn– I want to respect finn, ’cause I always thought he’d be a good match for her, you know. Because he sees her as the smart, intelligent, strong woman that she is and he lets her be. But this connection he has with– with his mom, I just– I don’t understand it.
Taylor: You know, I– I understand how– how you could feel bonded to sheila because she’s your birth mother, but the thing that’s confusing to everybody is why would you encourage that bond after she almost killed you and steffy? As long as sheila thinks that– that you love her or that you think she’s your mother… she’s never getting out of your life.
Sheila: Deacon, please, if you don’t mean it–
Deacon: I do. Don’t go. I don’t want to be alone. We’re traveling all across america
Brooke: Ridge, I’m not sure it’s fair to blame finn for sheila’s presence in our lives. Besides, he didn’t ask for her to be his birth mother.
Ridge: That’s not the point. The point is he’s gotta be a little bit more decisive as to what his feelings are for her. Because right now he’s making her feel like they could have a relationship. Like she could have a relationship with hayes.
Brooke: Well, now he’s made it very clear that he wants nothing to do with sheila.
Ridge: I’m so sorry. I’m– I’m sorry, how did he make that clear, really? By hugging her outside the judge’s chamber, by– by having her just, um, appear at the beach? She went to steffy’s house, uninvited. She was there. No wonder steffy left. He can’t protect her.
Brooke: Well, thank god she has a father that loves her so much that he will be there to take care of her.
Ridge: Well, the only way this father can protect her is something that carries a pretty long jail sentence. That’s up to finn.
Finn: You’re not wrong, taylor. I don’t know why I felt a connection to sheila. I mean, sheila’s done horrible things to me, to my family. I mean, she almost caused kelly and hayes to lose both their parents. I mean, I never should have given her any hope that we could have a relationship. I don’t– I– I just– I made a mistake and it doesn’t matter that she’s my birth mother, I should have drawn a line from the very beginning.
Taylor: Listen, I– I understand why you didn’t draw a line at the very beginning, but now you need to, okay? It’s time. Because steffy misses you.
Finn: Well, I miss them, too. I mean, taylor, they’re my entire life.
Taylor: Then fight for them. I mean, really fight for them. I don’t care what you have to do, finn. It doesn’t matter, just get sheila out of your life.
Sheila: I– I’ve got to admit my head is spinning right now. I– there– there’s been so much that’s happened today.
Deacon: It’s always been an adventure with us, right?
Sheila: [ Laughs ] Yes, that’s– that’s very true. But it’s not every day a girl discovers that she’s got a guardian angel.
Deacon: That’s definitely the first time anyone’s ever called me that.
Sheila: Well, that’s exactly what you are. You gave me back my freedom, my life.
Deacon: I helped a little.
Sheila: No, you helped more than a little.
Deacon: Come on. Spencer bungled the investigation. I bent the judge’s ear. I didn’t rewrite the law.
Sheila: Only you cared. You cared enough to go to bat for me and– and that’s worth everything. I have never– I’ve never had anyone care about me like that.
Deacon: Listen, I know what it’s like to make mistakes, sheila. That’s all. You know, I– I felt so alone that I didn’t know if I was gonna make it through the night. I think you can relate to that. You know, you felt those things, right?
Sheila: Yeah. Yeah. You know, I have.
Deacon: I mean, you and me, it’s like we’ve always been the underdogs. You know, the misfits, the convicts, you know. We’ve had to work twice as hard as everybody else just to get a chance to move ahead. We don’t get a chance to win too often. But you know what? It doesn’t have to be like that. We can write our own story. A better one. Right here, right now. Why give your family just any eggs
Finn: You leaving?
Taylor: Uh, yeah. Yeah, I’m gonna go check in with ridge. Fill him in on steffy and the kids.
Finn: Hey, I want you to know. I– I heard every word and you’re right. I promise you, I will find a way to cut sheila out of my life.
Taylor: Don’t promise me, finn, you know. Promise– promise your wife and your son.
Finn: Yeah, no, I will. And, um, thanks. Thanks for caring enough about steffy and me to come over here.
Taylor: Of course. I know you love her so much and she loves you, too.
Finn: She can have faith in me. Can you tell her that? Would you let her know how much I love her and how hard I’m fighting to get her, kelly, and hayes home?
Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, I’ll tell her but you have to start fighting. Like, really fighting. Look, finn, I know that you have talked to sheila before and it’s kind of gotten you nowhere ’cause she’s still in your life.
Taylor: But you have to let her know under no uncertain terms that– that she is not allowed in your life anymore or your children’s lives. You– you can’t let her back in. Look… she’s a monster, finn. You know that, I know that. Everybody knows that. She’s gonna use whatever she can to– to manipulate you, with sympathy. The minute that you show weakness around sheila carter is the minute she wins. I know that. I know that from experience. You fight for this, finn. You have to be strong because she– she gets power out of getting into people’s minds, manipulating. And the minute that she does that, you… you will lose everything. Do you understand what I’m saying?
Finn: I understand.
Taylor: Okay, good. So you need to make sure that… she knows that she is not welcome. And she is not allowed in your life. And that… that is how you fight, finn. Make her go away. Not just temporary. Make her go away for good.
Deacon: Yeah, just like that. Okay. No, that sounds– that sounds perfect. Okay. All right. Thank you.
[ Deacon chuckles ]
Sheila: What was that about?
Deacon: I just had to, uh, you know, make a few arrangements.
Sheila: Oh, for us?
Deacon: Well, you know, you’re the queen of surprises. I figured what the hell? I’ll try my hand at it.
Sheila: I don’t really love surprises. They– they don’t usually work out well for me.
Deacon: Think you’re gonna like this one. As a matter of fact, I’m sure you’re gonna like this one. What’s the matter? You don’t trust me?
Sheila: Oh, you know I do, daddy.
Deacon: That’s my girl. All right. So, uh, you know, I think you deserve something special. Hell, I think I deserve something special. So, come on. Let’s go.
Brooke: You know what I think we need?
Ridge: I have everything I need right here in my arms.
Brooke: Well, I think we need to step it up a notch. Do something we haven’t done in a while.
Ridge: Now, I’m curious.
Brooke: Well, we could go home, get in the bathtub and I will make all your worries melt away.
Ridge: I have no doubt. You have the magic touch.
[ Brooke moans ]
[ Knocking on door ]
Taylor: Hi. Sorry, pam– pam said you were in here working.
Ridge: What are you doing here? I thought you were with steffy in europe. Is everything okay?
Taylor: What? With steffy? Um, you know, yeah. I mean, considering she left her husband and everything she loves.
Brooke: Yeah, it’s been difficult for all of us.
Taylor: Yeah, it really has. You know, you two seem to be doing just fine. Some luxury creams just sit on top of skin.
Ridge: Hey, I– I didn’t know you were coming back. When– when did you get in?
Taylor: Oh, I got in earlier this morning. You know, the– steffy and the kids are– are finally settling in and we got security set up, so, you know, I figured now was a perfect time to come back. I wanted to check on thomas and take care of a few other things.
Ridge: Sure, but how are they doing? Are they okay?
Brooke: Yeah, we’ve been so worried about them.
Taylor: You know, they’re– they’re fine, you know, all things considered. But the upside is that the international school is beautiful and kelly really likes it. And hayes is just, you know, taking everything in. You know, they’ve been uprooted from everything they know and that is hard. Their father not being in their lives. It’s affecting them.
Ridge: It’s– it’s good you were there. [Indistinct] Giving them comfort.
Taylor: You know, I hope so. I really do. You know, steffy– steffy misses finn, and she– she misses her life here. She’s really mad that– that sheila is the reason that she had to leave, you know. Ah, she’s just doing everything she can to make things okay for her and the kids right now. And right now they’re safe in europe.
Ridge: And they will be safe because as long as finn is here, sheila isn’t going anywhere.
Taylor: Oh, you are right about that. Hey, uh, I– I stopped by and talked to finn before I came here.
Brooke: How did he seem?
Taylor: Ah, I… he misses his family, of course, but I told him that– that he has to do everything that he can to make sure that sheila is out of their lives. I mean, sure it’s gonna be hard, but… my god, he just needs to stand up and fight.
Ridge: Because steffy can’t come home until he does.
Taylor: Exactly. And that’s the hard part because as long as sheila believes that finn loves her, she’s not gonna give up. He has to convince her with everything he has that– that she is out of their lives forever. He wants nothing to do with her. That he does not love her. I mean, how could he? Sheila carter is not lovable.
[ Sheila chuckles ]
Deacon: Here we are.
Sheila: Wow. This is beautiful. You did this all for me?
Deacon: I was hoping you’d have dinner with me tonight.
Sheila: Oh, well, I am gonna have to check my schedule but I– I think I might be able to work something out. We have the place all to ourselves?
Deacon: Yeah. Yeah. Even hollis didn’t stick around. No one’s gonna bother us. And I know that because I’m the boss.
Sheila: Indeed, you are, daddy. It’s like you recreated the date that we had months ago and it’s– it’s really special. It’s like you knew what I needed then and you know what I need now. But why?
Deacon: Why not?
Sheila: I– I think we both agreed that we weren’t going to see each other anymore. I want a life with finn. You want a life with hope and if either one of them found out about us–
Deacon: Yeah. Let’s– let’s not do that. Not tonight. This evening, it’s all about you. All right, sheila? That crazy– scratch that, that unique, unpredictable, and passionate woman who hobbled her way into my life.
Sheila: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, all nine toes of mine.
Deacon: I said you were unique.
Sheila: Yes. And– and you– you get that. It’s like you get me. You– you really get me.
Deacon: That goes both ways.
Sheila: I– I don’t have to be anything else but myself. It’s like you– you see the person that I want to be and you actually have me believing that I can be that person. Like– it’s like I can see myself through your eyes.
Deacon: Sheila, you are so much more than anyone thinks. I believe that. And I also believe that people can change and everybody deserves a chance to try.
Sheila: And you’ve– you’ve given me that chance. You’ve– you’ve done so much for me and I’m not talking about just assuring my freedom, but you’ve given me a fresh start. And I– I really might have a chance at a relationship with my son. And it’s no secret how I feel about finn. You know how much I love him. And I’m so desperate to have a life with– with finn and hayes. But… I– I want a life with you, too.
[ Sheila sighs ] That really does make me crazy, doesn’t it?
Deacon: No, it doesn’T. That doesn’t make you crazy. That doesn’t make you crazy at all.
