Ridge: Congratulations. You won.
Eric: Thank you. And this– this day, this has been amazing. One of the most amazing days of my life. But you didn’t make it easy for me, you didn’T. You’re a giant talent, ridge. You really are. It’s an honor to go head-to-head with you.
Ridge: The honor was mine, dad.
Eric: [ Laughs ] I wanted this collection to be something that would leave an indelible mark on this company. A mark never to be forgotten.
Ridge: Well, that’s exactly what it’s gonna be because you are this company. Always will be.
Steffy: Ooh! That shower was so, so good. I mean, the villa was beautiful and all, but like, the water pressure was a little like…
Finn: Mm, I guess, they just don’t make castles the way they used to.
Steffy: Stop. That’s not what I meant.
Finn: Well, if I would have known that modern plumbing was the way to get you home, I would have just, I don’t know, changed the shower head.
Steffy: You are the reason I came home, just you. So, um, did your mom come here and grab the kids?
Finn: Yeah. She’s sorry she missed you. But, um, she’s thrilled that you’re home, but not as ,uh, thrilled as I am.
Steffy: I never want to be away from you again.
Finn: Good. ‘Cause you’re never gonna be. I’m never gonna let anyone or anything come between us.
Steffy: Anyone? Look, we might as well just get it out of the way. I heard the news. I know about sheila and deacon.
Sheila: I don’t know why they call it happy hour because it is the same sappy guys telling the same stupid jokes, talking about the same bonuses. Hitting on all of these women that are way out of their league and getting shut down. No, it should be called pathetic hour.
Deacon: Don’t hold back, sheila. Let me know what you really think of my clientele. Hey, listen, as long as they buy the same $20 drinks, I’m cool.
Sheila: Oh, daddy. Mommy had a really rough day. I think I need a foot massage.
Deacon: I’m not sure what hr would say about that. I mean, you know, I’m the boss and you’re an employee. Might not be appropriate behavior.
Sheila: Mm. Well, you are the boss downstairs, but upstairs and especially in the bedroom, I think I got you covered in that department.
Deacon: You know, I’m not saying that this doesn’t turn me on, but I gotta tell you, the missing piggy still gives me the willies.
Sheila: Well, it just goes to show how far I’m willing to go to get exactly what I want.
Deacon: No one’s ever going to doubt that you’re 100% committed. But that’s in the past, right? You promised. No more obsessing about finn and steffy.
Finn: Do you know about sheila and deacon?
Finn: How? Did your father tell you?
Steffy: No, I um– I got a message from liam.
Eric: I’m sure you understand why I wanted to do this, ridge. It was never about wanting to beat you. You’re a world-class designer. It was an honor to go head-to-head with you. Never doubt that.
Ridge: I– I don’t doubt it. And how can I? I mean, you– you made me. You made me who I am. You’ve given me everything. I’m my father’s son. And even with all that, I couldn’t beat you. Victory is yours.
Eric: You have no idea what this means to me.
Ridge: I think I do.
Luna: Oh, hey, ridge. Is– is everything okay?
Ridge: Yeah, no, yeah, um… yes, can you– can you help me with something?
Luna: Yeah, of course. What is it?
Ridge: When I took over the ceo office, I moved some of my dad’s stuff. Memorabilia and– and, uh, awards and things and it’s all in a box. So, I’m sure it’s in storage, probably labeled, if you could maybe find that.
Luna: Yeah, of course. I’m on it.
Eric: I remember the first day I came into this room, you know. I was so young. I was full of ideas, dreams. And then, it all started. These– if these walls could talk, they would have so many stories to tell. Of hard work and determination. And, uh, joy and heartbreak. Creativity, beauty. So much beauty came out of this room.
Donna: It’s all because of you. Your drive, your vision, your passion.
Eric: I’m closing the book on everything just the way I wanted to.
Ridge: Oh, sorry. I should’ve knocked. Your office.
Finn: What exactly is this?
Sheila: Um, it’s tea. Earl grey, to be exact.
Sheila: Would you like sugar? Maybe one lump or two?
Deacon: Okay, you’re terrifying me right now.
Sheila: Why? Why? I– I just want to lead a nice, simple, normal, peaceful life, is– isn’t that what this is?
Deacon: Tea, sugar and lumps?
Sheila: I’ve got lemon if you want lemon.
Deacon: Why do you have to be so all or nothing?
Deacon: I’m just trying to be what you want me to be, deacon. I– I am trying to forget how much I miss and love my son.
Deacon: What I want you to be is yourself. That’s who I fell in love with. All right, I don’t want whatever the hell this is. Sheila, I want to be enough for you.
Sheila: Baby, you are enough.
Deacon: Look, if you gotta go all in, if you gotta double down, then double down on us. Finn’s not an option right now. You cannot be a part of finn and steffy’s life.
Finn: I can’t believe liam told you about sheila and deacon.
Steffy: He left me a voicemail when I was in the mountains.
Finn: Left you a voicemail? I was gonna tell you, steffy. But I spoke to ridge about it. We both agreed that we needed to give it some time because you were unreachable. Look, I– I know, I just can’t believe that liam would do something– but you know what? Of course, he would do something like this.
Steffy: None of that matters. You know why? Because sheila doesn’t matter. I refuse to let that monster separate me from my family, ever again.
Rj: What dad did today, I’m never gonna forget it. I mean, when he told granddad that he won, I could see a physical change in him. He’s been so stressed from all of this, I mean, from his– from his symptoms getting worse, from being unable to design. I mean, it’s– it’s just been painful for him. It’s been painful to watch. And then, just in a moment, I– I could just see all the weight come off of his shoulders in there.
Brooke: Your father loves eric so much. I’m sure he’s going to do everything he possibly can to make sure that… these last days are the best he’s ever had.
[ Door clicks open ]
Katie: Hey, rj. I’m looking for luna. What’s wrong? What’s going on? Is it your granddad?
Rj: Katie knows.
Katie: Wait, you– you told your mother about eric?
Ridge: Well, before you get too comfortable, maybe I could have a minute, take my stuff out of here and spruce the place up a little bit.
Eric: So, you’re kicking me out of my office already?
Ridge: Can you just humor me? I just wanna make this place perfect for you and then, you can come back and never leave.
Deacon: Sheila, no contact with finn. You made a promise.
[ Sheila laughing ] Sheila.
Sheila: Okay. All right. I– I’m just messing with you. I– I hear you, deacon.
Deacon: Why do you got to stress me out like this? What’s the deal? I mean, no one even knows that we’re engaged yet. Imagine how they’re gonna–
Sheila: I know. I know. I’m not gonna mess this up for you.
Deacon: So, you’ll stay away from finn?
Sheila: I would like nothing more than to be a part of my son’s life. But right now… I am focused on this life with you. This life that we are creating together.
Steffy: How could deacon be involved with sheila? I know hope’s father had some issues, but I didn’t realize he was this far gone.
Finn: Uh, they claim to be in love.
Steffy: What? In love?
Finn: Yeah. Yeah, it’s crazy. I’ve seen them together. Deacon invited me over to il giardino, I had no idea sheila was gonna be there and they’re both saying it’s– it’s love.
Steffy: I don’t buy that for a second. Sheila is incapable of having a normal, healthy relationship. She is just using deacon to work her way back into the family. She’s targeting deacon because he’s hope’s father. No, I don’t like this one bit and I’m not gonna just sit by and let this happen. No, I am not.
Finn: Where are you going?
Steffy: I am gonna pay those little lovebirds a visit. They should know that I’m back in town.
Finn: But you don’t want anything to do with sheila.
Steffy: No, I don’t, but I’m not hiding anymore. I’m gonna tell her to her face not to mess with my family again.
Rj: Yes, I told mom about granddad. I couldn’t keep it a secret any longer.
Katie: You did the right thing. You honored your grandfather, but your parents needed to know. Does ridge know?
Brooke: Yeah. He is devastated. We all are.
Katie: It just doesn’t seem real. I mean, donna has been an amazing advocate. She’s– she’s tried to honor eric’s wishes, but honestly, I don’t know how she’s holding it together.
Brooke: I don’t know either. We’re all just trying to do what’s right by eric. Ridge, most of all.
Katie: What does that mean? I mean, is that about the fashion challenge? That winning the challenge was so important to eric.
Brooke: Yes, and ridge knew how desperately eric wanted to win, so he just gave it to him.
Katie: He gave it to him?
Brooke: Ridge actually won the challenge and he told eric that he was the winner.
Eric: We won this thing! We won it. Uh, look at this room. You can still feel the energy here, yeah. Ah, I’m not gonna forget one moment of this. Not one moment, this is my– my final collection.
Donna: And your greatest collection, your greatest victory.
Donna: Oh, my god. I’m so proud of you. So proud of you.
Eric: Thank you. In just a few more minutes time, I can take back the office. Go up there and take back what’s mine!
[ Eric coughing ]
Donna: Oh, god.
Eric: All right, all right. Okay.
[ Ridge sighs ]
Ridge: Oh, hey, let me help you, is that it? That’s the box?
Luna: Yeah, I think so. I mean, I took a quick look through it and there was like, a bunch of awards and photos.
Ridge: Yeah, no, this is it. Ah, oh, look at this. I remember this day, I– that was my first award show. I went with my dad. He– he had designed this, uh, tiny little tux for me to look just like him. It was sweet. It was down at the, um– uh, it’s not even there anymore. It doesn’t matter, but it was where– it was a good day. There was press, and uh, beautiful models and amazing actors and everyone was around my dad. And he, uh– he was just there, and everybody wanted a piece of him. And I was a kid and I was watching this, and– and he went up on stage, and he– he accepted this award and he was so– he was so gracious, so elegant. And he looked out and he– he found me– doesn’t matter, it was his mome–
[ Voice breaks ] It was his moment and he made it my moment and that’s that story. That’s it.
Luna: Well, your father has accomplished so much in his career, I’m sure that only scratches the surface.
Ridge: Yeah. You’re right.
Luna: Oh, and I also found this old stapler in the bottom of the box. Did you wanna keep that?
Ridge: Uh, what?
Luna: Uh, a stapler.
Ridge: This– this is his stapler. This is– I– this is important. Thank you.
[ Banging on door ]
Steffy: Open up, deacon.
Finn: We know sheila’s in there with you, deacon.
Deacon: All right. You keep your feelings in check, all right? I don’t think they’re coming over to borrow a cup of sugar. You good?
Sheila: Uh, steffy. Welcome home, I’m sure that my son–
Steffy: Save it, sheila. I’m not interested in playing nice. I’m not buying this ridiculous act. Deacon, have you seriously lost your mind? I can’t even imagine what hope thinks about this little arrangement. But that’s not my problem. You are my problem. I’m still disgusted that you’re not rotting away in a prison cell right now, but you know what? I’m not scared anymore. You don’t have the power to keep me away from my family. I’m back and I’m not leaving. This is my home. L.A. Is my town. You want to threaten me? Bring it. Because I’m not going to run away from anyone. Especially not you, sheila.
Deacon: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Come on.
