Hope: My father and your mother together. This– this is insane.
Finn: No, I– I know. I– I couldn’t believe it when they told me.
Hope: Okay, my dad said that he is in love with sheila. In love. I mean, that doesn’t just happen overnight. They clearly must have been carrying on like this for a while and kept it a secret. I mean… what is my dad thinking?
Sheila: It’s kind of a relief our kids know, don’t you think?
Deacon: I think I’m feeling a lot of things. Relief isn’t one of them.
Sheila: Okay, I mean, finn and– and hope, we knew that they were going to be upset by this. There wasn’t anything that was ever gonna change that. I gotta tell you, my big takeaway from all of this is their reaction to our relationship proves that our– our children love us.
Deacon: That’s your big takeaway?
Sheila: Never underestimate the power of love, deacon. Wouldn’t it be something if our relationship is actually something that brings our families together?
Deacon: Yeah, that would be something.
Brooke: Ah. If we keep this up, we’ll never get any work done.
Ridge: You nuts? This is how I work. This is how I get inspired.
Brooke: Well, I have to say, this is really inspired.
Ridge: Well, that’s what I’m talking about. Look at it. And this is because of you. Like this. See this, how this sparkles? The way your eyes sparkle when you give me that look? That. That one? Yeah. Mm, right there. And see how this falls right here?
Ridge: Just like your neck.
[ Brooke giggles ] Yeah?
Brooke: Wow. I didn’t know a neck could do all that.
Ridge: Mm-hmm. Your neck, your eyes, your… neck.
Ridge: I’m just a simple man. With a woman like you, I can do anything.
Rj: I’m just gonna pretend I didn’t see the letter of resignation.
Luna: Rj, please. It’s for the best.
Rj: Luna, I’m not gonna let you walk out that door.
Brooke: So, you’re still confident that you’re going to win the design challenge?
Ridge: Yeah, I am. And sometimes, I wish I weren’T.
Brooke: Because of rj?
Ridge: Yeah. I don’t wanna destroy his confidence. And I get it, no one just walks up to the plate and hits a home run the first time, even with eric forrester coaching you. I just– I sometimes wish he were working with me, you know?
Ridge: Maybe save him for what’s to come.
Rj: You told me that it’s a family matter. Come on, let me– let me help you. Let me see what I can do.
Luna: Being here with you at forrester, I mean, it was too good to be true. And listen, it means the world to me that you want me to stay, but… it can’t happen. It’s better for everyone if I just go, okay? Just please trust me on this.
Rj: I trust you. Of course, I trust you. I want you just to trust me.
Luna: Rj, please. I have to go.
Rj: Please, just tell me what’s going on, okay? Please, just open up to me.
Sheila: Tell me what you’re feeling. I mean, seriously, don’t you feelerhaour children know about us?
Deacon: I feel like I just pulled the pin on a hand grenade.
[ Sheila laughs ] I think we ought to wait ’til the dust settles before we tell anyone about the engagement. It might push ’em right over the edge. I mean, love is one thing, but marriage?
Sheila: All right, I– I’m fine with keeping things under wraps a bit longer. But I’m serious! I really think our relationship could be what brings us all closer together. One big, happy family. I can see it.
Deacon: How many? ‘Cause I think you might need glasses.
Sheila: Just stop.
Hope: Seriously, uh, thank you for making me go see my dad because I cannot believe this. I mean, he’s in love with a legitimate psychopath. I just don’t understand what my dad could– could possibly see in her. I mean, he is endangering everybody by doing this. I mean… I can’t let him go through with this. I can’t let him do this.
You can feel it…
Deacon: I just never pegged you for a glass is half full kinda gal. You are, though, aren’t you?
Sheila: You know what? You’ve got to work towards something or– or what’s the point? I’ve never been accused of giving up without a fight.
Deacon: Truer words have never been spoken.
Sheila: I’m so happy. I– I’m free. I found love and I’ve got you and the children.
Deacon: The children… you really think that our relationship can be the glue that will hold our families together?
Sheila: I’ll tell you what. More and more, I am certain of it. I– I can see it.
Deacon: I don’t want you to be disappointed. You know, reluctant acceptance might be the best that we can expect.
Sheila: Deacon, deacon. How many times have I told you to not doubt me? I’m a fighter, remember?
Deacon: Damn straight I do. That’s one of the things I love the most about you. Come here.
Sheila: Now, that’s my daddy.
Finn: Sorry, I didn’t give you a heads up. I just thought that should be something you hear directly from your dad. It didn’t feel right for me to drop that bomb on you.
Hope: No, I get it. I don’t blame you for anything. I mean, obviously, my dad knew how I was going to react, ’cause he kept it quiet. So, I don’t know if I should be furious with him or terrified for him.
Finn: I think we’re just both still in shock. I mean, our parents claim to be in love. I mean, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to wrap my head around that.
Hope: Well, this entire situation is just dangerous, and my dad somehow thinks that his love has– has changed sheila magically somehow. I mean, I–
Finn: Well, no one could change sheila. I got the scars to prove it.
Hope: I– I’m– I’m going to tell my mom. Yeah. I’m– I’m going to tell her about this because she– she’ll know what to do.
Brooke: Rj is going into this cutthroat fashion industry and I think he’s going to be facing a lot more challenging situations than working with his granddad. So, we can’t baby him or else he will be eaten alive.
Ridge: I know that. You’re right. Every designer has to find his own path, his own ideas and I think– I think rj is on his way. He’s designing now. It’s one of the proudest moments of my life.
Brooke: I know you wanna work side by side with him and I’m sure you will one day, but right now, what he needs is probably to work with his granddad instead of his father.
Ridge: Yeah. I see a lot of myself in him when I was his age. I just– I want him to know that he’s loved, that he’s supported and that we will do anything to help him succeed, right?
Brooke: Of course. Of course.
Rj: Whatever it is, luna, you can– you can tell me. All right? Please let me help.
Luna: Okay. Okay, you’re right. I have been keeping something from you.
Rj: What is it? Here, come on. Let’s sit down.
Luna: Um, these past few weeks have been, like, the best of my life.
Rj: Well, then why do you wanna leave?
Luna: My mom didn’t know that I was interviewing for a job here, so when I had decided to come to L.A. And follow my dreams, I– I knew that I had to do it on my own.
Luna: Because she’d be worried about me. She didn’t want me to put myself in A… bad situation.
Rj: Luna, how could working here put you in a bad situation? I don’t– I don’t get it.
Luna: There’s someone in my family who wouldn’t want me to be here, who wouldn’t approve. My aunt.
Rj: Your aunt? Does she work at forrester?
Luna: No, but–
Luna: Um… your sister’s mother-in-law? That’s my aunt li and she’s the reason why I wrote the letter of resignation. I don’t know, she just– she doesn’t want me here. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease
Deacon: Okay, then, so… we’re in agreement. We’ll keep the news about our engagement quiet for the time being.
Sheila: [ Sighs ] Oh, as much as I wanna scream it from the rooftops, I just, I think it will freak finn and– and hope out.
Deacon: Yeah, and the rest of L.A.
Sheila: Okay, so we will just keep our wonderful news for another day.
Finn: Hey, just be prepared ’cause, I mean, once you tell your mom about sheila and deacon, all hell’s gonna break loose.
Hope: No, I know. But thank you for telling me, finn, and giving me the heads up. I mean, you’re the only person in the world who knows what this feels like.
Finn: Look, sheila’s all love and sunshine now, but we know how she can turn if she feels threatened.
Hope: And that’s what I’m worried about. I want to keep my dad out of harm’s way, but my mom does have a way of getting through to him. Maybe she can talk some sense into deacon and put a stop to this– this insanity between our parents before it goes too far.
Luna: My aunt li was just here and she was so furious. She made me write that letter.
Rj: I can’t even believe this.
Luna: I know, I’m sorry. You shouldn’t be dragged into this.
Rj: No, I just– I- I just don’t understand. It doesn’t make any sense.
Luna: I should’ve been honest with you from day one, but, I don’t know, I guess I was just so happy about getting this job and… I should’ve told you about my connection to finn and your sister.
Rj: No, it’s just I don’t understand why li doesn’t want you to work here. I mean, I feel like she’d be really happy for you.
Luna: Well, li is extremely protective of finn. She sees forrester as a– as a place for him, for your family. Not for me and my mom.
[ Luna sighing ]
Luna: My aunt li and my mom, they have a very difficult relationship. I mean, she’s always been so hard on my mom and even though they’re sisters, they’re… I don’t know. They’re very different people. Do you remember that phone call that made me really upset?
Luna: That was my mom.
Rj: Well, what’d she say?
Luna: Uh, my mom told me that I should leave forrester immediately. That she was afraid of something like this happening, that aunt li would find out that I was working here and everything would come crashing down.
Rj: I’m just– I’m so sorry that you’ve been dealing with this alone.
Luna: I feel terrible for keeping this from you. Listen, I really don’t wanna cause any trouble. I think it’s best if I just leave. This isn’t charmin!
[ Sheila chuckling ]
Sheila: Aside from rubbing your thigh, I am enjoying this incredibly peaceful moment because it’s only a matter of time before brooke comes knocking on that door.
Brooke: Sounds like the invites were creating quite a buzz from what katie said. A special engagement featuring forrester couture’s latest collection, available for same-day purchase. Who wouldn’t be excited about that?
Ridge: Little do they know, they are just there to settle a score between father and son. Winner takes all.
Brooke: Well, I’m not gonna lie, I am excited.
Ridge: You’re excited?
Ridge: Even though you know I’m going to win?
[ Brooke giggling ]
Brooke: Oh, honey.
Brooke: Hi. Are you okay?
Hope: No. I saw finn earlier.
Ridge: What’s going on? This have something to do with steffy and the kids?
Hope: No. I, um… sorry, I think I’m still processing. I’m in shock.
Ridge: Well, take a breath. What are you talking about? What’s going on?
Hope: Okay, so– so finn actually came to visit me here earlier and he said that there was something weighing on him and he needed to tell me something and– and then all I could get out of him was that I needed to go see dad.
Brooke: Deacon? Is– is everything all right?
Hope: Well, I went to go to his apartment to find out for myself and it turns out, um… [ Clears throat ] Dad is seeing someone. He’s in love.
Ridge: In love?
Brooke: Wha– what? I– I didn’t even know he was dating.
Hope: Yeah. Well, it was news to me, too.
Brooke: Well, have you seen her?
Hope: Yeah, she was actually at the apartment and, um… I can’t believe I’m about to say this and these words are about to come out of my mouth, but the woman that dad is involved with… is sheila carter.
Luna: I’m really sorry I didn’t tell you I was related to li. I hope you haven’t lost faith in me.
Rj: Why would I lose faith in you?
Luna: Because I kept something from you? From the day I was being interviewed. I– I wasn’t trying to be dishonest. I’m gonna go. My– my mom was right. I– I should not have come to L.A.
Rj: No. Luna, your mom was not right, okay? And I wouldn’t think any less of you because you didn’t tell me that li is your aunt.
Luna: You wouldn’t?
Rj: No! Of course not. What I feel– I just feel bad that you’ve been going through all of this on your own. I– I don’t understand. Why is li so disapproving of you working here? I feel like she should be proud of you. You– you got this job completely on your own. You didn’t even use your connections to get here. That’s– that’s just impressive.
Luna: No. You don’t understand. You didn’t hear aunt li earlier. She will not be happy if I stay here.
[ Rj scoffing ]
Rj: Aunt li does not get a say, okay? ‘Cause this is your life. This isn’t aunt li’s life. These are your opportunities. You’ve– you earned your place here! You are a beautiful, intelligent woman. You can make those choices for yourself. Listen, there is something that is so special about you, okay? I know we’re just getting to know each other, but I really don’t want this to end, all right? And I don’t care what li says. You’re not leaving forrester. You hear me?
