Ridge: I’m so sorry for everything you’re going through. This woman breaking in here and attacking you, and… you having to defend yourself. I just am so happy that–

Steffy: I’m just really glad that you’re here. I know the threat is gone, but it’s nice that I’m not alone right now.

Ridge: I’ll always be here. Whatever you need. And your husband should be here too. Where’s finn?

[ Finn groans ]

Finn: You must think I’m insane for reacting this way.

Hope: No, finn, I… I don’T. Look, the woman who gave you life has died. You are allowed to grieve that.

Finn: Yeah, but the woman that she was and the… and the things that she did? You know, it’s not like I’ve forgotten.

Hope: Of course you haven’T. I mean, finn, but, look, to everyone else, we just… myself included, we just knew her for… for the crazy, for the crimes. But to you?

Finn: But to me, she was my mother. She was this woman who brought me into the world. And… and now she’S… she’s gone. She’s dead. That’s because of steffy.

Rj: She’s dead?

Thomas: Yeah.

Rj: Oh, my god. Is steffy okay?

Zende: Carter just filled me in. It’s really true. Steffy killed sheila.

Rj: Wait, the kids. Were– were they–

Thomas: No. Kelly and hayes weren’t home. Yeah, steffy was by herself when sheila broke in.

Rj: Steffy must be in shock right now.

Thomas: Yeah, she’s shaken up, that’s for sure. Look, steffy hated sheila, but she never intended to kill her.

Steffy: I told sheila to leave, but she kept inching closer and closer to me. I thought she had a gun, and then she lunged at me. I mean, I was trying to protect myself.

Ridge: I know, I understand. Everybody does.

Steffy: Even finn?

[ Loud knocking ]

Ridge: Oh, deacon, what’s up?

Deacon: You killed sheila?

Finn: I just– I can’t believe that this is happening. I… I keep seeing sheila’s blood on the floor, the way it looked, and on my hand, and I mean… I mean, she was murdered in my house by my wife.

Hope: But steffy must be horrified too. I mean, what she went through tonight?

Finn: You know, she says it was self-defense, and not that I don’t believe her, it’s just… hope, this is– this is overwhelming.

Hope: I mean, this is– this is going to take time for both you and steffy.

Finn: I couldn’t even look at her.

Hope: Steffy?

Finn: Yeah. I couldn’t hold my wife. I– I couldn’t touch her. I don’t want to… I don’t want to say this, but I don’t think I can… I don’t think I can be in that house. Wanna know how I get this glow?!

Zende: Do you think that steffy could be in trouble for this?

Rj: No. Well, I mean, she already tried to kill steffy once. She shot my mom and yours. I mean… I mean, I’m not gonna say I’m sad that she’s gone.

Thomas: I agree. And in terms of the police, my dad texted me, told me that chief baker was there asking some questions and I’m sure that’s totally normal in this kind of situation. Look, we’re gonna do everything in our power to protect her.

Steffy: I don’t know what you heard, but–

Deacon: Is it true, steffy? Did you kill sheila? I mean, finn wouldn’t lie about that, would he?

Ridge: Finn?

Steffy: Finn told you?

Deacon: See, he said that, uh, she wasn’t gonna be coming back and the police were involved. And I thought– I thought maybe she came back here and you had her arrested. You convinced the police–

Steffy: There was no time to call the police. Sheila was on a mission. She tried to lunge at me! I grabbed a knife. It was self-defense.

Deacon: You wanted her dead. You said that at my place. You taunted her.

Ridge: What are you implying here?

Deacon: Was this premeditated? Did you plan this?

Steffy: Premeditated? What are you talking about? I wanted a night with my husband. That lunatic came onto my property.

Ridge: And she attacked my daughter. Left her no choice. No choice at all. And sheila got what she deserved.

Finn: I wasn’t there when it– when it happened. I– I didn’t witness it, but… every time I close my eyes, I see it. I see steffy holding the knife and stabbing sheila. I can’t– I can’t get the image out of my head.

Hope: No, but you will though. Eventually. I promise. Your brain is just trying to– to make sense of all of this.

Finn: Well, you probably thought sheila had it coming.

Hope: I think, uh, I think my feelings on the matter are very complicated. And if that’s true for me, I can only imagine what you’re going through. Finn, I know you don’t condone the things that sheila has done. And yet you still feel a connection to her. And that is understandable. You have every right to grieve the loss of your mother. I just want you to– to also focus on what is most important. And that is the fact that your family is okay. Steffy, the kids, they’re safe. So, if you focus on that, eventually, everything will be all right.

Finn: Yeah, will it though?

Hope: I– I mean, some people might have a hard time understanding what you’re going through. But, uh, I get it. And I can assure you your feelings are valid. So, I– I’m here for you. Whatever you need. (Man) mm, hey, honey.

Deacon: Got what she deserved? My god, ridge, are you really that cruel?

Ridge: You do remember what she did to my family.

Deacon: I know that she changed.

Ridge: Really?

Deacon: I’d never seen anybody work so hard to better themselves. All she ever wanted was to be accepted.

Ridge: So, the woman that broke in here, attacked my daughter again, that’s the better version of sheila? Is that what you’re saying?

Deacon: I don’t understand this. This doesn’t make sense.

Ridge: Nothing she ever did made sense.

Deacon: Steffy, are you sure that you– you didn’t misinterpret something that–

Steffy: Interpret? Deacon, what are you talking about? She broke into my home. She refused to leave.

Ridge: It’s okay. That’s enough. My daughter had a bit of a rough night. What she needs right now is support. It seems to me you came over here to defend some idiot who you think was in love with you. It’s time to go.

Deacon: You didn’t know her. Not like I did. She was in love with me. This wasn’t something that I– I made up in my head. This wasn’t a lie. You know what? I loved her too.

Finn: Thanks for saying that and for being here. Just… the problem is, is I don’t know what I need. It’s just– I just wish none of this ever happened.

Hope: Well, uh, maybe think of it this way. Even if it didn’t, sheila was still being sheila. She was out there in the dark, in that storm, terrorizing your wife, so realistically, finn, I mean, I don’t know how much of a future relationship was there for you. I think a little too much damage has been done.

Finn: No, I know. I know, and I didn’T… want any of that. I wasn’t hoping for that.

Hope: Look, I get you probably spent most of your life wondering about who your birth mother was. You know, daydreaming about her and… then you got sheila.

[ Finn chuckles wryly ] So, I think maybe you should focus on the blessings that you actually do have in your life. You know, your work, helping others, the friends that care about you, the mother who actually was there for you who did raise you. And not to mention, steffy. Kelly, hayes… your beautiful family.

Finn: Oh, you’re right. You’re absolutely right. And I– I… I don’t know why I’m reacting this way.

Hope: Because you’re human. And sheila was still your mom.

Finn: But she shot me. And she shot my wife. And that is what I should be picturing when I close my eyes. Not sheila’s blood, but my blood and my wife’S. Thank you, hope. Thank you.

Ridge: I can’t believe that idiot came all the way over here to accuse you. Sorry.

Steffy: What if deacon goes to the police? What if he tells them that I wanted sheila dead?

Ridge: We all wanted sheila dead. That’s not news. We wanted that for decades. The police know that. And they’re gonna come and they’re gonna interview you, and we’re gonna have attorneys here and it’s gonna be fine because you’re covered.

Steffy: Yeah, I hope you’re right. I just wish finn were here.

Ridge: I can’t believe he’s not here.

[ Door opens ]

Steffy: Finn. Deacon was just here. He told me that you went to his apartment. You told him?

Finn: Yeah, I, uh… yeah, I felt the need to… to go there and… you know, where she lived and feel close to her.

Ridge: What? Close to her? What are you talking about?

Steffy: Dad, dad–

Ridge: You need to be here. You need to be here for your wife.

Steffy: Hey, I love you, but I need to talk to finn, okay? Alone.

Ridge: Okay. Hey… sheila is dead. I’m sorry to hurt your feelings. You need to be here. Your wife, your kids, your house, your responsibility.

Steffy: I hate that you’re upset. Your birth mother died tonight. I understand why you’re upset. I’m upset. I took a life tonight. I never wanted this. Finn, I am… I am so sorry. Everything you’re going through right now, everything you’re feeling, just know that I am so, so sorry.

[Bell dings]

Thomas: So, how’d it go? Breaking the news to your dad?

Hope: I, uh, didn’t see him. Actually, by the time I got there, he had already gone. Someone told him.

Thomas: Oh, well, who got to him first?

Hope: Finn.

Thomas: Finn?

Hope: I walked in and he was just sitting on the couch holding a photo of sheila. I just, I don’t know. I think he was trying to wrap his head around it all, or maybe he wanted to be in the house where she last lived.

Thomas: But, I mean, sheila’s not some normal doting mother. She’s a psychopath.

Hope: Well, yeah, I’m– I’m aware, but…

Thomas: But?

Hope: Finn still feels a connection to her.

Thomas: To sheila.

Hope: Come on, thomas, wouldn’t you?

Thomas: Look, I– I feel bad for finn and the dna hand he was dealt, but at some point you have to accept it and move on.

[ Hope sighs ]

Hope: Well, hopefully, our little talk helped with that.

Thomas: I’m sure it did.

Hope: Mm. I think I got through to him. Yeah, I… feel bad, but I really tried to drive the point home, you know, get him to realize where he belongs right now.

Thomas: Yeah, with steffy, right? His wife. That’s exactly where he needs to be.

Steffy: Did it help going to deacon’s?

Finn: Uh, I don’t know. Maybe. None of this makes sense, how I’m reacting. It’s just what you… you know, what happened tonight and what you did, it’s– it’s– it’s horrible. It’s surreal.

Steffy: But I want to be able to– to face this with you, because, honestly, I– I don’t think I can, I don’t think I can do this alone.

Finn: Look, you won’t have to, okay? I’m your husband. I’m here with you. And I’m so thankful that you and… that you and the kids are all right.

[ Steffy gasps emotionally ] You know, knowing what you faced tonight, and that you could be terrorized in any way, or traumatized.

Steffy: No, no. We’re gonna survive this. We are, because, finn, we can get through anything together. We can overcome any obstacle, okay?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: Thank you for coming home. Oh, god. Oh… oh, I needed this. I just need to feel close to you. Finn?

Finn: I don’t know what’s wrong with me. You know I love you and you know that I, um… I feel about you and you know that I just… you know, I want to get back to our beautiful little life, but… I think, um… I think everything that’s, uh, that’s happened, and just, just kind of be, like being here, and um, I– I think I just maybe need a little more, um… I think I need a little more time, okay? I think I just need some–

Steffy: What?

Finn: Some time. No, it’s just, um… everything that’S… that’s happened, and I know that sheila isn’t– isn’t, um… she– she didn’t raise me, but she is my mother, and I… I– I can’t, I’m sorry, I can’t– steffy, I can’t be here.

Steffy: Finn. Finn…

Finn: I can’T. I can’T.

Steffy: Finn, what are you doing? Finn! Finn, what are– come on!

[ Steffy sobbing ]

[ Steffy panting ]
