Hope: No. No, what– what are you saying? You– you and sheila? No. No!
Deacon: Sweetheart, please! Please, please.
Deacon: Hope, I know this is a lot–
Hope: A lot? Dad, it’s insane! Just like she is! I mean, there’s no– no possible way you could be in love with that monster!
Deacon: I know this doesn’t make sense right now–
Hope: No! It doesn’t! It doesn’t, dad, because after everything that you fought so hard for, how could you allow yourself to be involved with that?
Finn: Keep me updated on– on her condition and we’ll go from there. Thank you.
[ Finn sighs ] You and deacon–
Sheila: Are in love. I know, it’s– it’s hard to believe, but we– we couldn’t be happier.
Rj: Finn? Oh.
Finn: Oh, hey.
Rj: Hey, man. Uh, what– what are you doing here? I– I mean, it’s– it’s good to see you.
Rj: Are you looking for my dad, or…
Finn: Oh, no, no. I, um… uh, just had to talk to hope about something, so.
Rj: Okay. Have you, um– have you talked to steffy at all recently?
Finn: Yeah. We talk, her and I, to the kids every night. Still trying to convince her to come home.
Rj: Well, we know there’s only one way that’s gonna happen. So, um… any news on sheila?
Li: Luna! What are you doing here?
Luna: Uh, it’s– it’s good to see you too, aunt li.
Li: I asked you a question.
Luna: Um, I’ve actually been working here for a little while now.
[ Li scoffs ]
Li: I didn’t even know you were in L.A., Let alone working here at forrester creations, where my son’s wife and family work! Answer me! Why are you here?
Luna: Um, I’m here because I need a job and I’ve always wanted to work in fashion.
Li: So, you just randomly picked forrester creations?
Luna: Well, I interviewed for the position on my own. I don’t know, I– I thought it might be a good fit for me.
Li: [ Scoffs ] Really? A good fit? Does your mother know about this?
Luna: No, no. She didn’t know I was interviewing, I swear!
Li: I find that far too coincidental. You could’ve gone anywhere! You and your mother must’ve known finn married steffy forrester.
Luna: No, no! It’s– it’s not like that.
Li: You listen to me. I don’t know what it is you want, but you’re not gonna get it here. You are not welcome at forrester creations!
Rj: Have you seen sheila?
Finn: She’s still in L.A.
Rj: Finn, you know you’re the only thing tying her here. Like, come on. If you convinced her that you didn’t want her in your life anymore?
Finn: Rj, I have been crystal clear that she needs to stay away from me and my family! All I want is for my wife and for my kids to come home. It’s my only focus! Nothing’s gonna distract me from that. Sheila is never gonna be a part of our lives!
Sheila: Hope, I– I know that this is a shock–
Hope: Nope! Stop! I do not wanna hear anything that comes out of your mouth! Dad, the truth. Please. There’s something more going on here, right?
Deacon: Sweetheart, I…
Hope: [ Sobs ] No…
[ Whispering ] Like, this is another setup, right? Like, you’re just trying to get her back in jail where she belongs?
Hope: No. No! I mean, it’s sheila! That can’t be!
Deacon: Sweetheart, I’m sorry about this. I can see how upset you are. I’m sorry. I didn’t wanna tell you this way, but it’s true. Sheila and I are in love.
[ Hope sobs ] Twenty bucks I can name all 26 b-dubs sauces.
Hope: This can’t be happening.
Deacon: Just hear me out, okay? She is not the same woman as she was before. She’s changed.
Hope: Dad, I don’t know what she has done to you, but you can’t be with her. She’s dangerous!
Deacon: Honey, she’s not. She’s not anymore. That’s what I’m telling you. Baby, people can change. Look at me. I have made so many mistakes in my life and you have been able to look past them ’cause you saw the man I that I am inside. You gave me the chance to be the dad to you that I have always wanted to be.
Hope: And that is because you put in the hard work, dad! You did the things that you needed to do. You made the right choices, you wanted to be a better man and you cannot convince me that she has done that kind of work!
Deacon: She is! She’s reformed. I told finn the same thing.
Hope: Oh, okay. So, finn knows about this and that’s why he wanted me to come down here, to witness this?
Sheila: Just like your dad is hoping that you can find a way to be happy for us, I’m hoping that too.
Rj: Finn, I know how much you love my sister.
Finn: More than my life, rj. And I’m gonna get ’em back, okay? I’m not gonna let sheila drive them away forever. I promise you, I’m never gonna stop fighting for my family.
Rj: Steffy was– she was happy with you. I mean, she was– she was really happy, you know, before.
Rj: Look, man. You have a beautiful family, all right? And just know I’m rooting for you, okay?
Finn: Thanks. Um… that means a lot. I appreciate that. Anyway, enough about me. How are you? What’s going on with you? You’re– you’re back in L.A., Working here now. A young, handsome man.
[ Rj laughing ] Is there someone special in your life?
Luna: Aunt li, I– I didn’t mean to upset you, but– but this is just a job. I mean, no one even knows that I’m related to you or finn. I– I haven’t told anyone. I just– I don’t understand why you’re being so hard on me.
Li: You know the history in our family. Your mother’s always been a disgrace! I try to help her out, got her a job at the gift shop in the hospital. What does she do? Has an affair with one of the doctors. One of my colleagues! Ruined his reputation and almost brought me down too because she’s my sister and I brought her in and vouched for her! Your mother has always been a disgrace to our entire family. And now, you show up here, at forrester creations? Finn’s in-laws’ place of business? No, ma’am. I will not allow it. You can go anywhere, do whatever you wish, but not here. Not at forrester creations!
Hope: Dad, please just stop and think about all of the terrible things that sheila has done to us, to our family. I mean, she terrorized mom for years!
Deacon: I know that this has to be difficult for you to understand and I get that it’s gonna take time, but I swear to you, she’s changed.
Hope: Dad, she is not capable! She cannot change!
Deacon: Listen to me. I don’t believe anyone is beyond redemption. Hope, do you know how many people wrote me off?
Hope: Oh, that is not a fair comparison, dad! You are nothing like her because you are not a monster!
Deacon: Neither is she. She’s not the same person. And I swore that to finn and I’m swearing it to you too. She will never hurt anyone else.
Sheila: Your father is right, hope. I– I have learned, I’ve grown, and for the first time in years, I found somebody who loves and accepts me for who I am.
Deacon: Honey, I get it. I– I get how hard this must be and that you’re having trouble wrapping your head around it, but please, trust me. I need you to believe in me here. Trust that I’m making the right decision.
Sheila: Hope, I– I just want to live a normal, decent life like anybody else. I am ready for some peace and some quiet, and I have found love with your father. And yes, at some point, I hope that I have a chance to be a part of your world and a part of finn’s world too.
[ Hope scoffs ]
Hope: Dad, look at me. What do you see?
Deacon: I… see my beautiful daughter. My loving, amazing, good daughter.
Hope: Do you wanna know what I think of when I look at you? I see a man who has made mistakes. Who wasn’t there for me when I was growing up.
[ Tearful ] Who I missed more than anything and I didn’t understand why he was gone. But I see a man who came out the other side of that. Who faced his demons. Who now has a– a business and friends that respect him and a daughter and grandchildren who love him! I see a man–
[ Sobs ] Who has become a father in every sense of the word. Are you really willing to throw that away for her? Because that is what you are risking.
Deacon: Hope, you are and always will be the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. And I love you more than anything in this world. And I don’t wanna lose you. I can’t even think about losing you. And I get it. I get this is a shock. I get this that is upsetting and that it doesn’t make sense, but you know what? Sometimes love doesn’t make sense! I love sheila.
Rj: Come on, man, what makes you think I’m seeing someone? Come on.
Finn: Oh, get out of here, man! It’s written all over your face!
Rj: [ Chuckles ] All right. Yeah, okay. There is– there is someone. All right, it’s new. It’s nothing– it’s nothing serious yet. You know, I’m just– just getting to know her and dude, she’s keeping me guessing, man. Like, all the time. I sw– you know– you ever been in that? Like, it’s just– it’s crazy. [ Laughs ] But, you know. I, uh… god, I love learning anything I can about her.
Luna: Please, aunt li. I mean, it’s like a dream here! I mean, it’s the most prominent fashion house in los angeles. I’m actually getting to work with mr. Eric forrester himself! I’ve also been working closely with rj forrester, brooke and ridge’s son.
Li: I know who he is.
Luna: He’s been so open to me about the way he designs and he’s been showing me the sketches that he and eric– m– mr. Forrester have been working on. And rj’s just beginning to design and the collection that he’s working on with his grandfather’s gonna be his first. And I’ve been following him online–
Li: You’ve been following rj? Or, you mean stalking the poor boy?
Luna: No, no! It’s not like that!
Li: You stay away from him! That’s steffy’s brother!
[ Scoffs ] I can’t believe you. You’re just like your mother. Of all the places, you just happen to land here at forrester creations. There was a reason why your mother wasn’t invited to finn’s wedding!
Luna: I know that you and my mom have never gotten along,
[ Li snorts ] But you know she loves you, aunt li. She talks about you all the time!
Li: I can only imagine what she says.
Luna: She misses you. I know she admires you.
Li: Your mother and I are two totally different people and I told her a long time ago that she has her life, and I have mine! I don’t want to see her! I don’t wish to know her. So whatever you two are planning–
Luna: No, I told you, this has nothing to do with my mom! Please, aunt li! Please let me stay, I’m begging you! This is my dream. Please don’t take it away from me.
Li: You will write your letter of resignation. Then, you will then pack your things and be gone by the end of the day. Your time here at forrester creations is over. Do you hear me, young lady? Over! Stouffer’s makes you happyfull
[ Deacon sighs ]
Deacon: Well, that did not go the way I wanted.
Sheila: Honey, I gotta tell you, what just happened gave me a little bit of hope for hope.
Deacon: It did?
Sheila: Yes! She could’ve walked out that door. She– she could’ve turned her back and walked away and she didn’T. She stayed and she listened to us. Yes, we knew that she was going to be upset and shocked. There was no amount of finessing that was ever gonna change that and we both knew it, but she does love you. You can see it in her eyes, just– just like I can see finn’s love for me.
[ Chuckles ] I think this relationship, our kids are going to accept it. Who knows? Maybe this relationship brings us all closer together. One big, happy family.
[ Door slams ]
Hope: I can’t believe it! I cannot believe it!
Finn: You saw your dad. You know.
Hope: Oh, oh, yes! Yes, I know! I got to witness the entire thing!
Finn: Sorry. Maybe I should’ve told you first.
Hope: No. No, I think this is good because I really don’t think I would’ve believed it unless I saw it with my own eyes, that image of the two of them standing there, just burned into my head! I mean, your– your mom and my dad. In love.
Rj: Whew! I’m beat. [ Chuckles ] How are you? You doing okay?
Luna: It was really wonderful getting to know you, rj.
Rj: What– what’s going on? What’s wrong?
Luna: I think you’re so talented and… I really learned a lot, even though I haven’t been here long.
Rj: Luna, you’re making it sound like this is coming to an end and– and it hasn’t even begun. Hey! Come on. Look at me. Look at me. What’s wrong? What’s this? Is this a letter of resignation?
Luna: I can’t stay here.
Rj: Why can’t you stay here?
Luna: It’s complicated, okay? I have to go and I can’t tell you why!
Rj: Wait, hold on, hold on! I’m not letting you leave. Talk to me!
Luna: I have to. I’m sorry! It’s a family matter. I can’t get into it.
Rj: Luna, that–
Luna: I have no choice. Look, I just– I wanna tell you how grateful I am for the time I’ve had here with forrester and with you. I’ve loved every minute. Goodbye, rj.
Rj: Wait. I’m not letting you go anywhere.
