Hope: Carter should be joining us soon.
Brooke: [ Sighs] This presentation could’ve waited, sweetie. There’s a lot going on.
Hope: Which is why I am doing this because I need to do something, anything, with this energy and it needs to be productive and hope for the future needs an approved budget.
Brooke: Hm. Thomas is a gifted designer, that’s for sure. I just wish the two of you weren’t working so closely together. It worries me.
Hope: On second thought, let’s change the subject then about something that is more important, like my dad and sheila carter.
Sheila: So… what do you think?
Deacon: Wow. I’d place an order.
Sheila: Well, I am here to serve.
Sheila: Want a side of fries with that?
Deacon: Ooh, that’s an interesting visual. So, it’s a big day today, working at the restaurant. Balancing plates, filling water glasses.
Deacon: Taking orders.
Sheila: What could possibly go wrong?
Deacon: Hey, il giardino is a huge part of my life now.
Sheila: I know. I know. And I don’t want any problems, I– I swear. I just want a nice, simple normal life.
Deacon: I hope so ’cause I’ve really gone to bat for you, telling everyone you’ve changed, which means you have got to stop obsessing about finn.
Finn: Anyways, I was just hoping to catch you, steffy, but uh, I’m sure you have your hands full over there. Just know how much I love you and how much I miss you.
Li: Good. I’m glad to see you focusing on your family. It’s time, finn. It’s time to bring steffy, hayes and kelly home.
Finn: Yeah, I– I agree with you, but steffy’s still concerned about sheila.
Li: You have to cut her out. Get her out of your life.
Finn: Yeah, well, it’s not that simple, mom. Especially now.
Li: What’s sheila done? Has she tried to see you again?
Finn: Not exactly, but someone reached out on her behalf.
Finn: Her new love. She and deacon are together.
Brooke: This whole situation is a nightmare. It’s like deacon’s lost his mind.
Hope: I’m at a total loss because I don’t know how to feel about it. On the one hand, I don’t know if I should be furious with my dad for somehow managing to fall in love with sheila carter or terrified for him because she might hurt him.
Hope: So, we have the proposed budget, we have thomas’ samples.
Carter: That’s gonna have to wait. Um… I just talked to ridge. Deacon and sheila are together? No offense, hope, but what the hell is your father thinking?
Sheila: You want me to give up on having a relationship with my son?
Deacon: I know how much you love finn and how connected you feel to him, but come on. You saw his reaction when he found out about the two of us.
Sheila: Deacon, my son–
Deacon: Your son wants nothing to do with you. At least not right now. Babe, I’m sorry if that hurts, but it’s the truth. If you keep forcing it, if you keep trying to make him have a relationship with you, you’re gonna lose everything, okay? You gotta give him time. You gotta give– you gotta give everyone time to see that you’ve changed. That you’re no longer a threat, and that includes steffy and the kids. Look, I’ve gone to bat for you. I’ve put everything on the line here. I’m risking my relationship with my daughter and I’m doing it because I love you. I wanna have a– a future with you, but we can only build that life together if you stay out of finn and steffy’s lives. Can you do that?
Li: Deacon is as crazy as sheila is if he thinks he can control that psychopath. Somehow keep us safe? Please tell me you’re not buying into all of this.
Finn: I don’t know, mom. I’m just– look, I’m desperate to get my family back. And look, ultimately, sheila just wants to be loved. So, maybe deacon’s love will be enough for her.
Li: She wants you, finn. She wants your love.
Finn: Look, I have done everything but walk her out of L.A. Myself. The fact is, the bottom line is I can’t make sheila do anything. I gotta be optimistic. I mean, what other choices do I have? Steffy will not come back until she’s positive that sheila is no longer a threat, so if deacon can control her, maybe it’s the answer.
Carter: Has your father lost his mind?
Hope: I don’t think my father knows what he’s doing. Oh, and by the way, apparently, they’re in love.
[ Brooke groaning ]
Carter: I was afraid this might happen.
Brooke: What are you saying?
Carter: Ridge filled me in on deacon and sheila’s past involvement a while back. When sheila was released, we confronted deacon to see if he knew what sheila might be up to. I had a feeling he might be covering.
Hope: I just don’t see how my father could have any involvement with sheila after all the horrible things she has done to so many of us. I mean, it feels like a betrayal. Dad and I have worked so hard to get to this place, to have a solid relationship and this, him thinking that he’s magically changed sheila, it just feels reckless, so.
Deacon: Sheila, you gotta stay away from finn and his family. Until everyone knows that you’re not a threat.
Sheila: I would never do anything to hurt finn or his family because I love them.
Deacon: I hate to point out the obvious here, but that has not always been the case. You may have some making up to do. Now, babe, we love each other, right?
Sheila: Yes. Of course, I love you. I love you.
Deacon: Okay, all right. Then, that means we have to make sacrifices for each other. Look, all your life, you’ve wanted someone to love you, to accept you for who you are. Well, guess what? I am that someone. I believe in you. I believe that you can change. I can give you all the love that you need that you will never need to look anywhere else. You heard what I said to finn and I told ridge and brooke and hope the same thing. I will keep them safe from you, especially steffy and the kids. I mean, honestly, I’m helping you out.
Sheila: And not having a relationship with my son is– is helping me out?
Deacon: Sheila, finn will never forgive you if steffy doesn’t come back and you’re the cause of it. And all the hard work that you’ve done trying to build a relationship with him, that will be lost. I’m– I’m putting everything on the line here for you. I’m taking a stand. No one has ever done that for you before and you need to remember that. If you love me the way that you say you do, then you gotta promise me, and you gotta– you gotta mean that promise, that you will have no communication with finn and steffy. Tell me you can do that. Deal with sheila anymore?
Finn: No, of course I am. Sheila will stay out of my life. I’ll make sure of it,
Li: You’re not gonna deal with sheila anymore?
Finn: No, of course I am. Sheila will stay out of my life. I’ll make sure of it, but if deacon can help with that, I mean, I’ll take it.
Li: Is she planning on living with him, next to the alley where she shot you and your wife?
Finn: I don’t know. She is working at il giardino though. Apparently, it’s part of her rehabilitation.
Li: Rehabilitation. That’s laughable. Sheila carter should be in prison. It is the grossest miscarriage of justice that she is not rotting in a cell for the rest of her life. Somehow, there’s gotta be a way to get her locked up again.
Deacon: Sheila. Sheila, I need to hear you say that you’re gonna stay away from finn and his family.
Sheila: My goodness, I have got to skedaddle because I don’t want to be late on my first day of work. I don’t want people to think I’m getting preferential treatment, even though I do have an in with the boss.
Deacon: Cool your jets for a second, all right? I need an answer. Tell me you understand me.
Sheila: Look, I just want to lead a nice, quiet, normal life. I’m not looking to cause trouble or any kind of conflict. I’m not looking to go to battle, okay? And I do want a foot massage when I get home.
Deacon: All nine toes.
Sheila: All nine toes and then some. Waiting tables is difficult work.
Deacon: I know.
Sheila: Mm-hmm. Yeah.
Deacon: All right. Go get ’em, slugger. Bye.
Carter: Have you talked to your father about this? How upset you are?
Hope: Of course. We’ve all tried to get him to see how much this is affecting us.
Carter: Does he not care?
Brooke: Of course, he cares, carter. Honey, he loves you very much.
Hope: I know. He does. Which could also be the thing we need to work in our favor.
Brooke: He’s worked very hard to have a relationship with you and I know he would be devastated to lose that now.
Hope: Can this wait? Because I need to try to get through to him and make him see how dangerous this is, especially if he gets in the way of sheila and her relationship with finn. He has to listen to me and I’m going to put a stop to this before anyone else gets hurt.
Brooke: Oh, honey, just be careful, please.
Sheila: Geez, hollis, I know that deacon told you to keep an eye on me, but it’s okay to blink every once in a while.
Hollis: Yeah, he’s a bigger man than me.
[ Sheila chuckling ]
Sheila: Um, I’m just gonna have to take your word on that.
Hollis: Take it slow.
Sheila: Not my first rodeo. There you go. And for you as well. Let me know if there’s anything else I can get you at all, please. I look forward to seeing you both next time. All right. Hi, my name is sheila. I’ll be your server today. Can I start you with some sparkling water?
Li: You despicable, diabolical creature.
Sheila: Um, maybe a cocktail would be better.
Li: Do the other patrons here know that they’re being waited on by a murderous psychopath? You make me sick to my stomach.
Sheila: Then, you know what? We should definitely go with bubbles because that is gonna help settle your tummy. Here you go.
[ Li sighing ]
[ Glass shattering ]
Li: Whoopsie. Accident.
Sheila: No problem. I’ll just get that cleaned up.
Hope: Is she here?
Deacon: Uh, no. She’s, uh, she’s downstairs working.
Hope: At the restaurant? Wow, wow.
Deacon: Yeah, I– I was just gonna go down there. I– I’ve got time for you. I’m the boss.
Hope: Are you sure that’s going to last much longer? Once people find out that sheila carter is working in your restaurant?
Deacon: I hope so.
Hope: And if you’re wrong? If you lose everything that you’ve worked so hard to build?
Deacon: I gotta believe I’m not.
Hope: What about losing me? I mean, do you really think that I could ever accept you and sheila together? Is that worth losing me?
Deacon: Hope, I love you.
Hope: Do you? I gotta be honest, I’m having a really, really hard time believing that right now.
Deacon: Please don’t lose faith in me.
Hope: I am trying so hard to hold onto that. Everything that we have worked so hard to build over the years, dad. All that time we missed when I was younger. And now, you just want to throw it away for her? Isn’t your family worth fighting for? I want to share my life with you. I want you to be able to watch your grandchildren grow up. I mean, beth’s birthday? I never would’ve invited you if you were with sheila. Think about that. Think about everything that you would be willing to walk away from for her. Dad… choose us. Choose your family and put an end to this mess with sheila today.
Sheila: There you go. All better.
Li: You missed a spot. I suppose you’re good at mopping from all the time you spent in prison. Did you have to clean toilets too? Seems appropriate. Maybe, you can have your old job again when you’re back where you belong, behind bars.
Sheila: You know, I can understand why you’d choose to be less than amicable today, li, but I’m not going back to prison. I’m a changed woman. I– I have deacon in my life now.
Li: That’s right. Your one true love.
Sheila: All I want is to lead a simple, normal peaceful life and I’ll never again be a threat to steffy or your– your son.
Li: Don’t you mean your son?
Sheila: No, I mean your son, li. I’ve changed. All I’ve ever wanted in my life is to be loved, and yes, I thought I could find that love with finn, but there are circumstances that simply would not allow that. But I have that now. I have love with deacon. He’s the reason why I’m still in L.A.
Li: What happens when deacon’s done with you, sheila, hm? And he kicks you to the curb like everyone else?
Sheila: If we were to break up, you’d still have nothing to worry about because I made a promise. Hollis, thank you.
Hollis: My pleasure.
Sheila: Your meal.
Li: I didn’t order anything.
Sheila: I know you didn’T. I took it upon myself, on the house, of course, because you seem a little hangry. Bolognese. It’s one of deacon’s specialties. Buon appetito.
Li: Oh, excuse me, waitress?
Li: There seems to be something in my sauce.
Sheila: There is?
Li: Uh-huh. Right here.
Sheila: Well, I don’t see anything.
Li: Yeah, look more closely. It’s right here.
Hollis: Oh, my god.
