Hollis: Hey, boss.

Deacon: Hey.

Hollis: Ari called himself when he heard he wasn’t getting his standing table today. He sends his condolences.

Deacon: Yeah. I really appreciate your help. I think I might have wasted your time though. I got a feeling I might be paying tribute to sheila all by my lonesome.

[ Knocking on door ]

Hope: You are a surprise.

Liam: Bad one?

Hope: No. What brings you here?

Liam: Would you believe I was just in the neighborhood?

Hope: No.

Liam: That’s fair. Uh, actually, more than anything, I’m curious. Last time we spoke, deacon had invited you to, uh, sheila’s memorial service. You were a bit conflicted. Today’s the day. What did you decide?

Deacon: Finn. Hi, it’s deacon. I’m gonna be having a memorial service for sheila. You were so important to her. I know she’d want you there. You couldn’t have the relationship that she wished for, but she loved you, finn. More than anything in this world.

Finn: Hm. You smell good.

Steffy: So do you. Is everything okay?

Liam: Um, I just don’t wanna upset you.

Steffy: Uh-oh.

Finn: Look, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. And I’ve decided to go to sheila’s memorial service.

Hollis: You know, boss, it’s not about the amount of people that are here, but the quality.

Deacon: Nice try. You know, I know better than to have any expectations about the upstanding people of los angeles. I know how much they hated and despised sheila. I don’t know, I just– I just wish there’d be a couple people here, you know, besides you and me. It’s just… sad. No one’s willing to pay their respects.

Liam: So, are you going to sheila’s memorial service?

Hope: I’m not sure I want to tell you that.

Liam: Fair. But?

Hope: I talked to my mom. My dad actually invited her as well, and obviously she will not be attending. Anyway, uh, she then proceeded to try to talk me out of going, and I wanted to hear her objections so that I could make up my mind.

Liam: Did it work?

Hope: Yes. I’m going.

Liam: Oh.

Hope: But not to pay tribute to sheila. To support my dad.

Finn: I know you’re not happy about that.

Steffy: Do you think I would be, after telling me you’re going to sheila’s memorial service? I mean, if the tables were turned, she’d be going to our services, or– or mine. Because that’s– that’s what she really wanted, finn. She shot us, and then she broke into our home to finish the job. How can you even consider going?

Hope: Can I tell you how much I’m not looking forward to this afternoon?

Liam: I bet you’re gonna be the only person that shows up for that thing, yeah. First.

Hope: Well, maybe, finn.

Liam: You think so?

Hope: Well, my dad invited him and I know he does feel a connection to sheila. That is his birth mother, in spite of all of the horrible things that she’s done.

Liam: All of the horrible things she’s done, including shooting him and steffy in the alley, leaving them for dead.

Hope: Well, I certainly know that steffy would not be okay with finn attending sheila’s memorial service. So, we’ll see.

Steffy: You’re serious? You want to go?

Finn: Look, I know it’s the last thing that you want to hear from me, and I don’t wanna upset you. I know you don’t understand, and honestly, I don’t either. I– I just– I feel this– this need to be there. And look, hey, believe me, I am not excusing sheila, okay, for any of the– the despicable things that she has done to us. I would never defend her. But I also can’t help the way that I feel. All right? This primal connection, and… oh, god, I wish I didn’t, because, you know, it would be a lot easier, but it is there, and I can’t deny it.

Steffy: Finn, sheila’s dead. Can you just let her go?

Finn: Well, I’m hoping that being there will allow me to finally do that. Look, I never want to disappoint you. Sweetheart, I love you.

Steffy: I love you, too.

Finn: Look, this has been a challenge for us, dealing with sheila’s death, the way that it went down.

Steffy: Okay, so you, um… you really think if you go to sheila’s memorial service, you’re gonna find some kind of resolution?

Finn: It’s all I got.

Steffy: Fine. I mean, if you have to go then– then go. I just can’t go with you.

Finn: No, of course. And thanks for understanding.

Steffy: I, um… honestly, I don’t really– I don’t really understand it at all, but, um… I guess I can say just don’t be surprised if you and deacon are the only mourners.

Deacon: It’s just sad, you know? You live your whole life, and in the end, there’s just nobody here to mourn you.

Hollis: No, no, no, no, no. You’re here, deacon, and somehow I think that’s enough for sheila.

Deacon: I think it’s gonna have to be. Or not.

Hollis: I’m gonna go check inventory.

Deacon: Hey, thanks, hollis.

Hollis: You’re welcome.

Deacon: I can’t believe you came. I mean, of course I believe it, because… you’re you.

Hope: Well, I didn’t want you to go through this alone.

Deacon: Thank you. It means the world to me. The right age for

Steffy: I’ll just make a few tweaks to the contract and get back to you. Okay. I’m excited to work with you, too. All right, thanks. Bye bye.

Liam: Hey.

Steffy: Hi.

Liam: Hi. I used to love seeing you in, uh, corporate mode.

Steffy: Oh, I remember. So, what brings you by? Get some gossip for spencer publications?

Liam: Uh, actually, I’m just, uh, checking up on hope.

Steffy: I’m sure she’s fine. I’m sure she’s living her best life while my brother is halfway across the world licking his wounds because of her.

Liam: Yeah, well, thomas in paris, uh, works for me. I’m not gonna pretend I’m not kinda psyched those two aren’t in each other’s lives anymore.

Steffy: Yeah, that we can agree on.

Liam: Well, how are you?

Steffy: Yeah, I mean, the whole situation’s been a little tricky with– with sheila. But sheila didn’t come between finn and me when she was alive, and I’m certainly gonna make sure she doesn’t come between us now that she’s dead.

Liam: You know what I heard? I heard that, uh, deacon is having a memorial service at his restaurant for her.

Steffy: I am well aware.

Liam: Finn’s not, uh, he’s– he’s not gonna be in attendance for that, I assume.

Steffy: Oh, he is.

Liam: No, he’s, are you– are you okay with this?

Deacon: It’s sad, you know, it’s a life lived and lost, and nobody cares. I know. I know. I, uh, I reached out to finn. I don’t know if he’s gonna come. It would’ve meant so much to sheila.

Hope: I mean, honestly, I would be surprised if he didn’T. Like, I do know he felt a connection to her.

Deacon: Yeah. Maybe steffy objected. I mean, god knows she has a right to.

Hope: Well, steffy should let finn grieve however he sees fit, and maybe she should stop dictating how other people feel.

Deacon: I don’t know that that’s what happened.

Hope: Hm. Wouldn’t be surprised.

Deacon: Well, I guess there’s no use in putting it off, right? We should get going. There’s not gonna be a mad rush at the door. Shall we?

Hope: Okay.

Deacon: I just can’t believe it’s come to this. We were so happy. We were working together. We were– we were building something. Why the hell did you throw it all away? You came. Great.

Hope: Hey.

Finn: Hey. I’m surprised you’re here.

Hope: Oh, well, I came to support my dad. Look, I– I know– you know how I feel about sheila, but I am really sorry for your loss. You wanna know how I get this glow?

Liam: So, hold on. Finn actually went to sheila’s service?

Steffy: Like it or not, and I hate it, sheila is his birth mother.

Liam: Yeah, I know. And you’re his wife.

Steffy: And I killed her. Look, this is hard for him, and I’m just trying to be understanding.

Liam: Well, that is, uh, that’s awfully generous of you, because from where I’m sitting, him attending this service is a complete betrayal.

Steffy: Okay, finn and i already– we already discussed this.

Liam: I’m sorry if this is touchy, but like, how– how– what did you say? I mean, did you at least push back? Did you ask him what the hell he’s thinking?

Steffy: Liam, I didn’t use those exact words, okay, but I– I told him that I’m not thrilled that he’s going to sheila’s memorial.

Liam: Something is wrong with him, steffy, if his priorities are this misaligned. I mean, I– I don’t know. I– I get it. I get that she’s his birth mother, but he wasn’t– he was raised by two loving parents. He had no connection to sheila until she– until she crashed your wedding. Steffy, steffy, you’re his wife. You are– you’re it. You’re– you’re where his loyalty should be, not sheila.

Hope: You, uh, doing okay?

Finn: Yeah, I’m– I don’t know– I don’t know why I’m feeling so, um…

Deacon: She gave you life, finn. You two are connected forever. Even death can’t change that. She loved you more than anything in this world, and it means so much that you’re here.

Finn: Um, how– how are you holding– holding up?

Deacon: Taking it day by day, sometimes hour by hour. Thank you for asking.

Finn: Well, you were one of the few people, probably the only person who genuinely cared about sheila. You had good feelings for her.

Deacon: I did. Despite what most of the world thinks, including my daughter, sheila wasn’t all bad.

Finn: You knew her better than anyone. So, maybe you can help clarify something I’ve had trouble to understand.

Deacon: I’ll certainly try.

Finn: Because everything that I had heard was sheila was doing pretty well.

Deacon: Yeah, she was. She– your mother had completely turned her life around. She was happy. I mean, she was working here, enjoying it. Most of the time. We were leading a grounded, stable, happy life.

Finn: Then this doesn’t make any sense. Why trash it all? Why break into my home and attack steffy? I mean, sheila had to know that this wouldn’t end well.

Hope: Except we aren’t exactly talking about a normal person, are we, finn? I mean, she probably just snapped. Given sheila’s track record, is that really such a surprise? I mean, she defied logic.

Finn: Yeah, well, whatever the case, I mean, it’s– it’s– it’s tragic.

Hope: I think the real tragedy is the pain that she caused people when she was alive. And now the heartbreak that she is leaving, now that she’s gone. I mean, it’s clear that this is impacting both of you.

Deacon: Could we have a second? I’m sure you know this, finn, but your mom, she– she never really believed that anyone cared about her. And I get a feeling that right now, she is looking down on us with a smile on that beautiful face of hers. And she’s happy. Because you came here. And hope’s right. Sheila, maybe you did defy logic. There was never anyone like you. And there never will be again. I just can’t believe we gotta say goodbye.
