Sheila: So, let me guess. Um… you shoving my face into your plate. Just another accident.
Li: Just a reminder how disgusting I think it is that you’re not rotting in some prison cell for the rest of your life.
Deacon: Hope, listen to me. You know I love you.
Hope: Dad, you can’t love me and claim to love sheila. You can’T. Because loving her is hurting me and the two cannot exist at the same time. Dad, sheila is toxic. You know that. She is going to kill whatever relationship that we have and I just– I want you to put an end to this with her.
Thomas: Liam. What brings you by?
Liam: Oh, you know the uzhe. I’m– I’m looking for hope.
Thomas: Ah. What for?
Liam: Uh, something for beth.
Thomas: I don’t know where she is.
Liam: Okay. Yeah, I figured. I, um, I’ll just put this here. I saw hope the other day. She, uh, she told me about deacon and sheila.
Thomas: Yeah, I heard about that too. Don’t know what the hell her father is thinking.
Liam: Yeah, I don’t either. It’s– it’s insane and it’s insane on multiple levels ’cause it’s not just deacon, it’s finn too. I mean, finn has invited sheila into steffy’s life and now she’s a threat to her safety and we’ll never be rid of her.
Finn: Let’s order a second round of imaging two weeks from now and– and you can tell mr. Norris, I’ll be right in to see him. Thanks, tina. Ridge. Hey, what’s, uh, what’s up?
Ridge: Ah. You know this and that. Deacon and your mother are happily in love.
Finn: Sheila and deacon. Li is my mother.
Ridge: Oh. Well, either way. How much of this have you told steffy?
Liam: I mean, what I don’t get is finn knows he should have cut all ties with sheila from the very beginning and instead he just, he chooses to give her hope. I mean, hugging her and calling her mom, all of it. I mean, she– she’s the kind of person you don’t give an inch to, right? It’s obvious and yet he gives her a mile.
Thomas: I actually don’t disagree with you. Yeah, finn has handled this whole situation all wrong.
Liam: Yeah, he has and now we’re all paying the price for it, living under constant threat. I mean, look at steffy, she’s had to give up her home and her family and she’s miles away from everyone she loves and– and it’s killing her and frankly, it’s killing me too because I want her back.
Finn: I haven’t told steffy about sheila and deacon yet, no.
Finn: Look, ridge, you know– you have to know how much of a nightmare this has been for me. Sheila has turned my life upside down. She’s effectively taken my family away from me. What if she doesn’t stop until she destroys everything we love?
Deacon: Baby, it kills me to see you in pain like this and to know that I’m the cause of it. You don’t know this, but I made a promise to myself that if you ever let me back in your life, give me a second chance, I’d never disappoint you again.
Hope: Then don’T. You do have a choice, dad. And we’ve come so far. Don’t throw it away on someone like sheila. She only cares about what she wants and what she needs. Dad, she– she is using you. She is manipulating you and the minute that you’ve given all that you can give her, she will be gone because that is who she is, dad. She is not capable of change because she is a sociopath. She is not capable of love. She is dangerous, dad.
Li: Oh. The sauce is bitter. Just like you.
Thomas: You want my sister back? I agree with you. Finn has made mistakes as far as sheila is concerned. But finn is still my sister’s husband and she loves him and all I want for her is to be loved and safe.
Liam: Yeah, I know. That’s all I want too. Which is why finn has to act like a real husband and keep sheila away.
Thomas: Like you acted like a real husband with hope when you ran away as soon as things got a little tough? Yeah. Sure. How the hell do you think you’re gonna protect my sister from sheila better than finn?
Liam: Look, all I want is for steffy to be back where she belongs and that means finn keeping that monster away from us. As a matter of fact, I think– I think I’m gonna make sure he does that. Make sure hope gets this.
Finn: I miss my family, ridge. I– I never wanted to bring sheila into our lives, but at this point I’m– it’s beyond my control.
Ridge: Beyond your control or not, son, steffy needs to know about sheila and deacon.
Deacon: Oh, god, I just wish I could get you to understand. I don’t know why sheila and I click, but we just do. We– we– we speak the same language. Hope, all our lives, we’ve been the outsiders. You know, the misfits, the convicts.
Hope: Don’t compare yourself to her, dad. It is not a fair comparison. Yes, you have made mistakes, but you’re nothing compared to what sheila has done. Dad, please. Please, I am begging you, get yourself out of this before it is too late.
[ Knocking on door ]
Hollis: Hey, boss. Listen, we have a situation downstairs that needs your attention asap.
Deacon: Okay. All right, thanks. Honey. I’m sorry, duty calls. I gotta go. Please don’t lose faith in your old man. I know what I’m doing. I swear.
Sheila: I can– I can hear how angry you are and I deserve it. So you go ahead, you just– you go ahead and let go on me. But if you think that I’m gonna lose it and do something rash or stupid and fall for these attempts of yours to provoke me, you should know by now that i don’t easily fall for the bait. I am not stupid. So, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but I am not going to do something that is going to land me back in jail.
Finn: I know steffy needs to be told about sheila and deacon, but I– I don’t want to scare her off anymore.
Ridge: All right, fair enough. But when it’s time, it’s your story to tell.
Deacon: What the hell is going on?
Sheila: Oh, uh, li said that there was something in her sauce and I– I didn’t see anything, so she just wanted me to have a closer look so she just– she decided to put my face in it.
Li: I don’t know you very well, deacon. I mean, you must be crazy to be involved with such a heinous creature like sheila carter.
Thomas: Hey, I got your text. Everything okay?
Hope: No, I’m definitely not okay. I just came from my dad’s and I just, I can’t believe that he’s doing this, you know? That he would even think that I could accept a relationship with him and sheila when she’s a monster. And she’s– he’s willing to throw away our entire relationship and everything that we had worked for, for that. But that, um, that’s actually not– that’s not why I wanted to see you.
Hope: No. I came here to do this.
Finn: I’m just finishing up, tina. Did you prep, mr. Norris? Liam.
Liam: I will, uh, tell tina about mr. Norris on my way out.
Finn: What are you doing here?
Liam: You have to ask? You know, everybody’s gonna find out about your mom and deacon eventually, right? Like, hope just told me.
Finn: So, you rushed on over here because…
Liam: Because I want to find out what you’re gonna do about it. Steffy’s never gonna come home now. I mean, not, not as long as she knows that deacon and your mom are shacking up together. I mean that, that just makes the situation more dangerous. Like, you understand that. What did she say when you told her? Oh, okay. She doesn’t know about any of this, does she? You didn’t tell her.
Hope: Thanks. I, um, I needed that.
Thomas: This is what I want. You here in my arms. ‘Cause I love you. It’s that simple.
Hope: Thomas, I– I don’t know what I feel, but I do know that I’m grateful for your understanding and I just– I– I don’t ever want to take advantage of that.
Thomas: You never could take advantage of that. You’re too wonderful a person.
Hope: I’m trying. And you know me, always trying my best, putting on a brave face, but really, behind closed doors, I am still processing the end of my marriage and my family as I thought I knew it. And I just realized that I’ve been in something for so long with someone that wasn’t fully 100% committed to me. And now that I have space and time away from it, I just realize how exhausting that was.
Thomas: I’m sorry, hope. And not because you and liam aren’t together right now. I’m– I’m sorry because he has hurt you over and over again.
Hope: I had found a home in liam, but it was never really mine to begin with. And so now, I just… I don’t know if I’m going to feel that connection again with another man.
Thomas: Hey, hey, hey, hey, that’s okay. I understand. It’s completely fine, okay? Look… I get it and I’m here. This is what I want, to be here with you. Holding you, loving you. I will always love you.
Liam: Wow, that’s, uh, that’s pretty unbelievable, you haven’t told steffy any of this.
Liam: I mean, no, hey, listen, you don’t have to like, explain it to me. I can see it on your face. Your psycho birth mother is now hooking up with deacon sharpe and you don’t have the good sense to tell steffy about it? Like, whatever happened to the whole, it’s your job to protect your family thing?
Finn: You know what? Yeah, it is. It’s my job, okay? It’s not yours. I mean, you– you’re questioning my commitment and my love to steffy after you’ve bounced back and forth between her and hope so many times, we’ve lost count?
Liam: Hey, listen, you– you can try to make this about me all you want, but there’s really no excuse for you keeping this from steffy because it’s getting worse and worse by the minute, right? Sheila is worming her way, not just into your life, but into all of our lives.
Finn: Look, if sheila is gonna listen to anyone else, it’s deacon and deacon thinks he can control her.
Liam: Yeah, deacon’s wrong. And so are you. He cannot keep steffy protected and clearly, neither can you. I mean, it’s like if steffy is with finn, then she’s in danger. If she’s with finn, she’s in danger. Finn, danger.
Tina: Dr. Finnegan, you’re needed right away.
Finn: Yeah, I’ll– I’ll be right there. You better listen to me. You need to really listen. I know what you’re doing. It’s what you always do and it’s disrespectful. It’s disrespectful to me and it’s disrespectful to steffy. It’s a scumbag move. Stay out of my business and stay the hell away from my wife.
Liam: Screw it.
Steffy: Hey, you’ve reached steffy forrester. Leave your name and number and I’ll get back to you.
Liam: Hey, it’s me. Um… it’s good to hear your voice, even if only a recording of it. Um, I debated, uh, for about two seconds whether or not to leave you this message. Uh, and maybe if I thought you were gonna hear it directly from finn, it would be different, but who am I kidding? You’re not going to. Um… you deserve to come home feeling safe and with finn, you’re just not gonna have that feeling, especially given what I just learned. So, sheila and deacon sharpe are a thing. Now, they are romantically involved, finn knows about it and he’s keeping it from you. Like I– I– I don’t, I don’t know what else to tell you. I mean, the guy has been blowing this from day one and I think we both know why. It’s because he’s sheila’s son. He’s never gonna keep you and your family safe. He’S… he’s never gonna keep you safe the way that I would. You know, I want more than it’s because he’s sheila’s son. He’s never gonna keep you and your family safe. He’S… he’s never gonna keep you safe the way that I would. You know, I want more than anything for you to come home, but don’t come home to him. Come home to me. We were married once. We could do it again.
