Steffy: I came here to work. I don’t need you to lecture me marriage.

Hope: Look, I know you’re dealing with a lot.

Steffy: And it seems like you’re piling more on me.

Hope: I understand. It’s painful enough as it is already. It’s just, I– I see what finn is going through and I’m just urging you, steffy, to please don’t allow sheila’s death to come between you and finn.

Liam: Steffy needed you, you know. And you walked out on her.

Finn: I don’t owe you an explanation, liam.

Liam: Okay, you got one for steffy then? ‘Cause she has no idea what’s going on with you. In fact, nobody does. Lamenting sheila like she’s this significant part of your life? Like, what are you– you know what? It’s fine. It’s fine. Steffy’s gonna be fine because I’ll be there. I mean, she needs someone she can count on, finn. And if it’s not you, it’s me.

Luna: Oh, my god. What happened? What– what am I doing here?

Zende: That’s what I asked myself when you surprised me here last night.

Luna: I thought that I was with rj, zende. I saw his face. How could I make that up?

Zende: I can’t explain it, but… you do know that what happened between us, what we shared, it was consensual, right? I would never–

Luna: I know that. But it doesn’t change how I feel. The shock and– and the horror. I love rj so much and we have something so special. Or we did. But now? What have I done?

Poppy: So, this is where you’ve been hiding?

Luna: I’m working, mom. I’m busy.

Poppy: Too busy to answer my texts? I just wanna know that you’re okay, sweetheart.

Luna: I’m not. Not even close. Your mints turned my entire life upside down.

Poppy: Luna, I am so sorry.

Luna: Your apologies won’t fix anything, mom. I slept with zende thinking that he was rj. And now this secret is… it’s tearing me apart. I love rj. I mean, doesn’t he deserve to know the truth?

[ Knock on door ]

Rj: Hey, zende.

Zende: Bad time?

Rj: No, no, it’s fine. I just took a shower from a beach swim. It’s okay, come in. So, what’s up?

Zende: I thought we should talk.

Rj: About what? About work?

Zende: No, we can talk shop at the office. I came to see you here in private.

Rj: You want to talk to me in private? Why do you need to talk to me in private?

Zende: There are some things you need to hear.

Rj: What do I need to hear, zende?

Zende: I wanna make sure you understand how lucky you are to be dating luna.

Poppy: You can’t tell rj that you slept with zende.

Luna: Okay, so what am I supposed to do? What, I’m supposed to keep this secret locked up forever?

Poppy: Yes.

Luna: I don’t think I can do that. I don’t think I can keep what happened with zende from rj.

Finn: Do I have to remind you that it’s my wife that you are talking about?

Liam: No, I think I have to remind you it’s your wife I’m talking about. It’s like you’ve forgotten how lucky you are just to have her in your life.

Finn: I haven’t forgotten. I’ll never forget how blessed I am to have steffy in my life. And I don’t blame her for what happened. It’s complicated. But, frankly, it’s none of your damn business. You don’t know what I’m going through. Yes, we are all relieved that sheila is gone. But my birth mother is dead.

Steffy: Don’t act like you know more about this than I do. It happened to me.

Hope: I– all I’m trying to say is that I think it might be affecting finn a little more than maybe even you realize.

Steffy: You are overstepping right now.

Hope: Fine, fine, all right. Just trying to help, okay? I– I– I get that you might not understand what finn is going through. I just hope that you will try to respect it.

Steffy: I know finn is tormented by this. So am I. More than you could possibly imagine. Hey… it’s me! Your dry skin!

Rj: Yeah, you don’t have to tell me how amazing my girlfriend is. I– I know. She’s my girlfriend.

Zende: She’s a lot more than that, rj. She is smart and beautiful. Ambitious. Granddad thinks there’s a real future for her at forrester. And so do I. I know you like hanging out with her, spending time. Luna is special. I’m not sure you’re fully aware of that.

Rj: I’m completely aware of it. What I’m not sure is that you fully understand that we’re not just hanging out and having fun, zende. We’re in a committed relationship. And I– I don’t understand what it is that you’re saying or that you’re not saying, but luna and I are happy, okay? And you’re never going to be with her.

Poppy: Telling the truth can devastate rj.

Lun yeah,ut it’ the right thing do.

Poppy: Who benefits?No one if you’re questioning your relationship with rj.

Luna: No, I’m not. I love him.

Poppy: Then why hurt him by telling him something that you can’t change? For something that didn’t mean anything to you? Spare yourself this pain.

Luna: Mom, I’m not keeping this a secret to protect myself, mom. I mean, every single time I’m with rj, so good to me and I don’t wanna undermine rj and zende’s relationship. I mean, they’re– they’re like the next generation of forresters.

Finn: Steffy and I don’t need you or anyone telling us how to cope with this.

Liam: You’re not coping. You could cope at home. You’re bailing.

Finn: I told you, it is complicated.

Liam: Okay, then let me simplify it for you. Steffy shouldn’t be fighting through this all on her own.

Finn: And I shouldn’t be getting a warning from you. None of this is fair. My birth mother was stabbed to death in my home by my wife. I love steffy. I know sheila broke in, and steffy was defending herself, and I want to be there for her, but yes, I am struggling right now and I don’t need you to be putting me on blast for it.

Liam: Okay, I tried. Guess I can’t get through. One for the road. Don’t neglect steffy. Don’t take your marriage to her for granted like I did.

Finn: Because you’re waiting in the wings. Do you think that you’re being honorable? Giving me fair warning? Coming in here, interfering, acting like you know what steffy needs? What we need is privacy and some time to work this out. And we will. You got that, liam? Nothing and no one will come between steffy and me.

Hope: Steffy, I’m sorry. I am not trying to be insensitive. You acted out of self-defense. Everybody knows that, even finn.

Steffy: I still took a life. That’s the truth. Even though it was self-defense, even though I was trying to protect myself, it doesn’t change the fact that I watched a life leave someone’s body. That’s on me. I did that. And every time I close my eyes, that is all I see. Me killing her.

Is it menopause

or something else?

Hope: Steffy, I… I apologize. This wasn’t the time or place to talk about this. I was really not trying to upset you.

Steffy: Well, I appreciate your concern about finn and my marriage, but I don’t want to talk about this anymore.

Hope: I understand that I don’t know how you’re feeling, and how this is gonna impact the both of you. All I know is that I talked to finn and saw a man wrestling with himself. He’s confused. He’s hurting. And I just was trying to give you the heads up and let you know.

Steffy: We are grappling with a very difficult situation. It’s emotional. It is painful. But it’s not insurmountable. We have gotten through many storms together. We’re gonna get through this one. We’ll be stronger. I’m not gonna let this disrupt my life with finn.

Rj: Have you said what you need to say? Because I have to go to the office and do some work and say hi to my girlfriend. Okay?

Zende: I’d feel the same way if I were you.

Rj: Listen to me. I don’t want to argue with you. We used to be close, and we still can be. But you need to lay off and respect my relationship with luna.

Luna: The forresters are a wonderful family. And they all love each other. They do, but when there’s tension between them, I mean, it affects everything.

Poppy: That’s true of every family.

Luna: Yeah, well, the nozawas aren’t exactly running an international fashion house.

Poppy: You don’t wanna mess things up.

Luna: I already have.

Poppy: But telling rj the truth can make things so much worse.

Luna: I know. I know. You don’t want me to mess up my future with rj. And you don’t want me to mess up my job at forrester, but… that’s not why I’m not telling him the truth. I mean, I’m fully willing to face the consequences of my actions.

Poppy: You didn’t know what you were doing.

Luna: I didn’t have a choice then, but I do now. But, I don’t know, as… as much as I want to tell rj the truth, I don’t want to ruin his whole life and his family. I don’t want to be the reason why zende and rj can’t work together. And I won’t mess up eric’s collection. I mean, that’s just– that’s way too important. To eric, to his sons and his grandsons. And rj has worked so hard to get zende on board. And I know that they’re trying to rebuild their connection, and I just– I can’t disrupt that.

Poppy: So, we agree. You’ll keep this secret?

Luna: You make it sound so simple. But this is hell, mom. I mean, I’m terrified that this is gonna ruin every good thing in my life, ’cause that’s what secrets do.

Poppy: No, sweetheart.

Luna: Like yours did to me. I don’t know, it felt like everything was finally coming together. And then one night, a decision that I didn’t even have any control over– and now everything is different. And I don’t know if it’ll ever be the same again.

[ Knock on door ]

Finn: Hey.

Steffy: Finn.

Finn: I had to see you, steff. I just– I miss you so much. My doctorrecommends

Poppy: Honey, look at me. It’s gonna be all right.

Luna: I don’t know, mom.

Poppy: Well, I do. Because I know you. I know your heart. I know you’re a good person. Okay, you want to do the right thing.

Luna: But am I? Like, this doesn’t feel right, keeping this secret and lying to rj.

Poppy: It’s not a lie. You love rj. Hey, that’s true. That hasn’t changed.

Luna: But it has. I slept with zende and that’s always gonna be there, right under the surface.

Poppy: Zende has agreed not to say anything, and neither should you. You made a mistake. It doesn’t have to destroy everything. Okay, I can see you’re still not sure, but honey, you can’t tell rj. Please, tell me you understand that.

[ Door opens ]

Rj: Hey. Hi, you.

Luna: Hey.

Rj: Hello.

Zende: We’re just coming from rj’s place. I just wanted to stop by, let him know how lucky he is to be dating someone as wonderful as you, luna.

Poppy: You’re both lucky to have each other.

Luna: Um, yeah. Yeah, it makes me like a little emotional, actually. You know, thinking about everything that I have to be grateful for. Especially you, rj. And how happy we are together, and… all the things we have to look forward to. I mean, I never want to do anything to hurt you or let you down.

Rj: You never could.

Steffy: I’m really glad you’re here. I know it’s hard to be at the house right now.

Finn: Yeah, look, I don’t want this to keep me away from you and the kids.

Steffy: I know. And I agree.

Finn: I– I know it’s– it’s hard for you to understand and– and accept. And I– I wish I could explain what I’m feeling. I just… I’m struggling right now, um, with sheila’s death. And I don’t blame you, okay? Not at all. It just– it feels like something’s missing. Like a connection’s been cut.

Steffy: Between us?

Finn: No, no, no. Not between us. Just between my birth mother and me.

Steffy: I know you’re struggling. I’m struggling too. I killed someone, finn. I took someone’s life. And… what have I done? All I see is just the paramedics there trying to save her. And I was just– I was in shock. I was in shock. I was unable to breathe. And no matter what sheila’s done to us, it still doesn’t change the fact that I– I killed someone. I killed someone. And I’m really trying to come to terms with that, but I just can’t get this memory– I can’t get this memory out of my head. Like, it haunts me.

Finn: Just– we can’t let this tear us apart.

Steffy: No. No. No, we can’t let it tear us apart. We can’T. But will you ever be able to look at me the same way? I– I don’t even know if I can look at myself the same. I am so sorry. I’m so, so sorry. So sorry.
