Li: Please, stop talking like this.

Finn: No, mom, look, of course I consider you my real mother. All right, but sheila, she– she gave birth to me.

Li: And she almost killed you and steffy and me, so please just snap out of it. Sheila gave you nothing but pain, finn. Pain and heartache, and now finally she’s gone.

Finn: Because of my wife.

Li: Your wife fought to save herself, finn. Survived a terrible ordeal. Be grateful she’s alive.

Finn: No, um, I mean, I am.

Li: Then, wake up. Get over these feelings you have about sheila carter before you do something foolish to alienate steffy.

Steffy: Liam, you’ve been amazing. Thank you so much for being here and just listening to me and watching kelly for a few days while I figure this out.

Liam: Of course I’m here, where else would I be? There’s nowhere else I wanna be.

Steffy: I just feel so guilty. I mean, god, I killed someone. Who wouldn’t feel guilty?

Liam: Yeah, but you were ambushed. There was literally no alternative.

Steffy: Liam, there was nothing I could’ve done differently.

Liam: Exactly, and everybody knows that.

Steffy: Not everyone.

Liam: Okay, everybody, but finn knows that. Okay, listen, I know he’s, like, having a moment right now, but you’re the one who almost died. And what you need more than anything is understanding. Something you should be getting from your husband.

[ Knock on door ]

Deacon: Yeah?

Hope: Dad?

Deacon: Hey, hope.

Hope: Uh, hollis called and said you went to the morgue today, and I figured you could use some company.

Deacon: Want a drink?

Hope: I, uh, wanted to see how you were holding up. I know sheila meant something to you.

Deacon: She still does. Look, I– I know this isn’t your favorite topic, so… when I found out she was gone, she was dead, I just– I had to go see her. I had to say goodbye, just… see her face one more time.

Li: Let it go. Sheila could never be what you wanted. This image you have as a loving, nurturing birth mother, she– it’s– it’s ludicrous.

Finn: Look, that’s not the way that I saw her. But look, I mean, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for sheila.

Li: Yes, if it wasn’t for her affair with your father. I’m very thankful she gave us you, but she almost took you away that night in the alley.

Finn: I know.

Li: Do you?

Finn: Yes.

Li: Then, how do you have any sympathy for that maniac?

Finn: I mean, like it or not, she’s part of my past. She’s my roots.

Li: All you shared was dna, nothing more.

Finn: So what, I should just be celebrating?

Li: No, that’s not what I’m saying. But you shouldn’t be mourning her either. Finn, does steffy know how you feel?

Finn: Yeah, I– I told her that it’s complicated for me. Not just that my birth mother is dead. It’s who killed her.

Liam: Finn has always straddled this line when it comes to sheila. And now, he’s walking out on you because of an attack on you?

Steffy: Well, he is still dealing with a lot right now.

Liam: I don’t care. This is his life that he chose. This is his home. You are his wife, for better or worse. Why isn’t he here?

Steffy: He said he’s trying to figure this all out. And I am trying to put myself in his shoes. We have survived many things. We can survive this. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Deacon: You must think I’m nuts caring about someone who hurt so many people.

Hope: I’m not here to judge you, dad. I came here because I love you. And yes, while I didn’t have room in my heart for sheila… I certainly have room for you and always will.

Deacon: Wow, I just realized, hope, that you’re the only person I have in this world. You and the kids. And I just hope you know how much you all mean to me. I– I know I haven’t always done right by you. And I’m sure talking about my connection to sheila’s about the last thing you want to do.

Hope: I’m not going to lie to you and pretend like it– it wasn’t upsetting. I mean, it felt like you were making excuses for her. It felt like you were choosing her over us.

Deacon: I– I really am sorry. I never meant to do that. And, you know, the fact that i caused you pain, that kills me.

Hope: Dad, look, in spite of my contempt for sheila, I’m still, you know, I understand that there are going to be people in this world that mourn her.

Deacon: Besides me, I can’t think of anyone in this world who’s gonna mourn sheila.

Hope: I can think of one person who cared about sheila. Finn.

Finn: Look, it’s a lot to absorb, knowing what steffy did.

Li: What sheila forced her to do.

Finn: And I’m not– not blaming steffy for defending herself. I just– I– I don’t know, I just wish it didn’t have to be this way.

Li: If sheila stayed away like you asked her to, sheila would still be alive. Steffy didn’t go looking for trouble. Sheila put her in that position. She broke into your home.

Finn: And I wish I knew why.

Li: Why, because she’s a murderous stalker! That’s why! Listen, honey, I know you want to make sense of all of this. But you never will. None of it. Right now, you need to focus on being a good husband.

Finn: I’m doing the best I can. All right, you think I like being apart from my wife?

Li: Apart?

Finn: Yeah, I slept here last night. You left your wife alone? She was attacked, finn. She almost lost her life. You have all this compassion for sheila. Where’s your compassion for your wife? Finn, what’s going on with you? You need to get your head on straight. Before you cause permanent damage to your marriage.

Steffy: Honestly, liam, I just want finn to come home and work through this together. I mean, we’re both hurting right now. We’re struggling. But I know our love is stronger and more powerful than anything when we’re together.

Liam: Well, I give you a lot of credit for trying to understand where he’s coming from. But there is no excuse for him having even an ounce of pity for sheila because he’s got a wife and kids.

Steffy: There’s no doubt in my mind that finn cares about me and the kids.

Liam: I’m not implying he doesn’t care. But he has obligations here in this home. He has a duty to prioritize you and the kids. And he’s not. So, I’ll tell you this much. Whether finn is out there moping or here, I’m here. You can count on me. You and kelly and hayes can always count on me. (Imitating chicken clucks)

Hope: And when I came here to tell you about sheila, I was shocked when I walked in and I just– I saw finn sitting here just holding a photo of sheila. And he was so upset.

Deacon: I– I didn’t realize how deep his feelings for sheila ran. You know, the saddest irony of this whole thing is that more than anything, sheila wanted to be accepted and loved. And now, she’s not here to see that finn really did love her.

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 I want to get back to our– our beautiful little life, but I’m sorry, I can’T. Steffy, I can’t be here.

Steffy: Finn, finn, finn. What are you doing? Finn.

Liam: Hi, john.

Finn: Ugh. Um, not now, liam. Um, I’m not in the mood.

Liam: Totally respect that, which is why I’m not gonna stay too long.

Finn: Are you not hearing me? Now is not a good time. I have a lot going on.

Liam: Yeah, no, I heard about what happened at your house.

Finn: What happened? Sheila died, liam.

Liam: Good thing steffy’s okay, though, right?

Finn: Yeah, I’m more thankful than anyone that she’s okay.

Liam: Really? ‘Cause I don’t know, I kinda feel like, I don’t know, you would be there then.

Finn: Excuse me?

Liam: I don’t get you. Like, I know that you’re going through a thing right now, but…

Finn: Uh, I am. So give me a minute. Do I not have the right to process this?

Liam: Yeah, I’m just not sure. What’s the thing that you’re processing? Is it the fact that your psychopath mother is dead? Or the fact that you walked out on your wife?

Steffy: Sheila, I know it’s you. Get out! I’ll do it!

[ Door opens ]

Hope: Steffy. I, uh, I didn’t think you would come in today.

Steffy: Yeah, I just had to, uh, I had to get out of the house.

Hope: I’m so, so sorry for what you’ve been through.

Steffy: It’s really upsetting to say the least. I, um, I can’t get sheila out of my head. I can’T. The way she lunged at me. I was only trying to protect myself.

Hope: I’m sure that was– is incredibly traumatizing. I mean, knowing that you had to kill someone. I can’t believe one bottle of tide

Liam: I was, uh, I was just with steffy.

Finn: You never waste an opportunity.

Liam: Yes, who happens to be my, uh, child’s mother.

Finn: Whatever, man. Can you, um, can you just stay away from my wife?

Liam: No, that’s not gonna work because then we’re both gonna be staying away from your wife and I’m actually concerned about steffy and the kids.

Finn: Well, don’t be. My birth mother, sheila, she’s dead.

Liam: Yeah, why do you do that? You’re trying to play it cool with me, but I know that you see sheila as this, like, warm, fuzzy, benevolent presence in your life. And do you know how that makes steffy feel? It’s alarming. It’s– it’s disloyal.

Finn: Okay, that’s– that’s enough, liam. Why don’t you just mind your own business, okay? This doesn’t concern you.

Liam: You really– you don’t have any idea how lucky you are. I mean, steffy is– is at home doing her best to wrap her head around this bizarre mama’s boy relationship you have with sheila, when any other woman put in that situation with that particular person would’ve dumped your ass, ages ago.

Finn: You don’t have to tell me how amazing steffy is. I’m well aware.

Liam: See, yeah, I was confused because instead of acting like it, you’re seemingly blaming her for almost getting murdered.

Finn: I am not blaming her.

Liam: She was protecting herself. She was protecting your family for you and you are hiding away here. Now, I’ve never understood your relationship with sheila. But this, you prioritizing your grief over her instead of taking care of your wife and kids.

Finn: That’s not what I’m doing.

Liam: No, it is what you’re doing. It is exactly what you’re doing, finn. You’re just lying to yourself about it. And it’s no wonder steffy feels so alone. Wait, she’s not alone. Because she has me. Well, there it is. Do I have your attention now? You see, I’m gonna do everything I can to make steffy feel safe and supported. And if you’re not up to that task, I’m the man she’s gonna start turning to.

Steffy: None of this has been easy for me, hope. Sheila broke into my home and went after me.

Hope: No, I– I know the details. You don’t need to relive that night. All I was trying to say, rather poorly, was that I– I can’t even begin to understand what you must be feeling. I mean, you had to kill someone. I mean, I don’t even think that I could do something like that.

Steffy: What is this? I didn’t have a choice. I didn’t want to do that. I didn’t want to have to grab the knife. But I needed to survive. It was either her or me. I had to protect myself.

Hope: No, of course.

Steffy: Have you forgotten that she shot me before?

Hope: No!

Steffy: Then, what is this? It’s like a weird vibe I am getting from you.

Hope: I– it’s– steffy, sheila has hurt my family too. She’s hurt my mom. I haven’t forgotten that.

Steffy: Let me tell you something. You would have done the exact same thing if you were in my situation.

Hope: I am sure that it was absolutely terrifying. I am sure that all you could think about was the children.

Steffy: Sheila tried to take me away from my children. I wasn’t gonna let that happen again.

Hope: I am just– I’m trying to say that I understand this is a very heavy burden to bear. I was just talking to my dad and he was saying that… look, roll your eyes at my dad and his feelings for sheila all you want. That’s fine. Just please don’t make that mistake with finn.

Steffy: What does this have to do with my marriage?

Hope: I saw finn. And we talked and… despite your feelings for sheila, steffy, finn still has a very real connection to her. And I am just trying to say finn is a good man. Steffy, please just be patient with him. Give him some time to grieve and to process this. I mean, we all– we all couldn’t stand sheila. But at the same time, I mean, that is still finn’s mother. I mean, he– he wouldn’t exist without her. So, I just– I hope you will try to be, I don’t know, just sympathetic to the fact that this is a very complex, difficult time for finn. He’s just in a very vulnerable place right now. I just hope that you will be careful. Steffy, please don’t let sheila’s death interfere with your marriage.
