Deacon: Stop! Stop! Ten toes! There’s ten toes! Do something! Ten toes!

Carl: Please, that’s very hot!

Steffy: It is the end of sheila carter. I mean, now that the memorial service is over, we can finally return to our normal lives. At least, I hope.

Ridge: You went to hell and back because of that deranged woman.

Steffy: Yeah, just the terror that sheila spread. And not just here in L.A. In genoa city, too.

Ridge: Genoa city. I was getting– did I miss lauren fenmore? Because I was gonna talk to her about how relieved she must be about the whole sheila thing.

Steffy: I know she is relieved, we’re all relieved. She just never thought that we’d be rid of sheila. But it happened.

Ridge: We can all take a deep breath now, right?

Steffy: Yeah, we can.

Ridge: All of us.

Steffy: All of us.

Ridge: Does that include finn? Why would he go to that memorial? Why did hope go? I thought it was just gonna be deacon.

Steffy: Well, supposedly hope went because of deacon. And finn… I don’t know, dad. It’s complicated.

Ridge: Is it?

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: Are you okay with him going and saying a final goodbye? It’S…

Steffy: I really don’t know–

Ridge: You don’t know?

Steffy: How I feel right now.

Ridge: So there’s more?

Steffy: I just think that sheila messed with my husband’s head. And he’s just dealing with a lot. But now that sheila’s gone, I hope his connection to sheila is gone, too.

Hope: I mean, you know you’re nothing like her.

Finn: Yeah, I know that. I do. I could never do the things that sheila did. Cause that much pain and suffering.

Hope: Oh, you’re kind of the complete opposite. You are kind, you are caring, you are compassionate.

Finn: Yeah, yeah, but yet here I am. I’m trying to make sense of my conflicted emotions. Right, thanks for being here, hope, and letting me open up to you about all this.

Hope: Well, you said you’d never judge me, so I’m not about to start judging you.

Finn: No, you’re one of the least judgmental people I know. In fact, I think you’re one of the nicest people I know.

Hope: Well, you better not let your wife hear you say that, because I’m pretty sure steffy wants to run me out of town for ruining her brother’s life.

Finn: Ah, you didn’t ruin thomas’ life. He’ll bounce back from this.

Hope: I hope so. He deserves to be happy.

Finn: Yeah, but so do you. I’m serious, hope. You did the right thing not accepting thomas’ proposal.

Hope: Well, I– I couldn’T. Don’t get me wrong, I care about him deeply, and I always will. I just, I couldn’T… I didn’t want to get married again. I mean, so soon. Especially with…

Finn: With what?

Hope: Look, I don’t want you to take this the wrong way, but my mother has been married more times than I have fingers to count on, I’m pretty sure. And I just– I didn’t want that for myself.

Finn: So, you’re saying there’s no chance for you and thomas?

Hope: I can’t really say. I don’t know. I– I’m not sure. All I know is that right now, I am concentrating on my line, myself, and my little girl.

Finn: That– that sounds like good medicine to me.

Steffy: Yeah, dad, the truth is I– I am upset that finn went to sheila’s memorial service. But I told him that I wasn’t gonna stand in his way. I just– I don’t want any more things coming between us.

Ridge: I get that. The two of you have been through a lot.

Steffy: Yeah. I just wanna be able to concentrate on my marriage. My husband, our family. There’s been so much drama lately. It’s time to move on with our lives.

Ridge: Without the psycho birth mother.

Steffy: Yeah. That’s when I think about all the things she’s done. She showed up at my wedding reception, and then she shot us, and then she breaks into my home. I mean, it goes on and on.

Ridge: All right, don’t do that. You did the only thing you could’ve done. Everyone knows that. Even finn.

Steffy: Even though I– you know how much I hated sheila. But it is really hard for me to know that like I did– I killed–

Baker: Well, I’m glad the both of you are here together. We need to talk about sheila carter.

Deacon: This– this can’t be. This– this, this can’t be.

Carl: Sharpe, what is it?

Deacon: No, no, no, no, no. I– I’m freaking out, man. No, my eyes are playing tricks on me. I saw–

Carl: Okay, okay. Why don’t you have seat?

Deacon: No, I don’t wanna sit down, I–

Carl: Okay, okay. I’ll bring you some water.

Deacon: No, I– I swear I saw ten toes in there! What the– what the? (Vo) struggling with moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Finn: So how’s, um, beth handling douglas not being around?

Hope: She misses him. Almost as much as I do.

Finn: Ah, he’s a terrific kid.

Hope: He really is. But now he is with his dad in paris, a million miles away. At least it feels that way.

Finn: You worried about him?

Hope: Well, I am a mother, after all. I mean, that’s what I do best. I will always worry about him, but he has an awesome dad. And I know that he will take care of him, and they will both take care of each other.

Finn: Well, douglas, you know, he’s always been an extremely mature kid for his age. He’s honest to a fault. I think he gets that from you.

Hope: No. Well, that’s sweet of you to say.

Finn: I’m serious, hope. I mean, you set an extraordinary example for douglas. You know, for any kid.

Hope: I just want him to come home. It hasn’t really been the same since he left, uh… but I’m not going to put any pressure on him or thomas. I am going to give them as much time as they need. I’m not going to contest this situation just yet.

Finn: And you don’t want douglas getting caught in the middle?

Hope: No, and he– he asked for that, he… look, he’s– he’s mature. I have to trust that he knows what’s best for him right now, and he knows I’m just a phone call or text away.

Finn: Well, you’ve always been a guardian angel for him, right? Whenever he’s needed it, even when he hasn’t, so. And in my book, I think that makes douglas a truly lucky kid.

Hope: Thank you. I– I, uh, needed to hear that.

Finn: So, I, um, I have something I wanna ask you.

Hope: Okay.

Finn: And it’s very important to me. I want you to promise me something.

Steffy: You’re here about sheila.

Baker: Yes.

Steffy: What about her?

Baker: Are you aware that deacon sharpe had a memorial service for her at his restaurant? I take it neither of you attended?

Ridge: No. Why would we do that?

Baker: Well, I doubt many others did either, considering her reputation.

Steffy: Chief baker, could you just tell us what’s– what’s going on?

Baker: Oh, yes, of course, um… I want to go back to that night for a moment, when sheila broke into your home.

Ridge: Can we not do that?

Steffy: Dad, just let him say what he has to say.

Ridge: No, I don’t want him upsetting you.

Baker: That’s not my intention. Quite the opposite, actually.

Steffy: What do you mean, opposite?

Baker: Yes, I just got the word. The position of the state of california and the city of los angeles is that you were acting in self-defense that night. Especially considering your history with sheila.

Steffy: So, no charges have been brought?

Baker: That’s exactly what it means.

Ridge: So– so everything that happened, this whole chapter, everything’s behind us?

Baker: Yes. As far as the authorities are concerned, steffy is not liable for sheila carter’s death.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Deacon: I know what I saw. I know what I saw. I know what I saw. She had ten toes. She had ten toes. She had ten toes and that wasn’t sheila. There were ten toes in there. There were ten.

Carl: I brought you some water.

Deacon: Look, I…

Carl: I thought, I’m sorry that you reacted this way. Sometimes, it’s not great to have the family participate–

Deacon: No, that’s not it. I saw ten toes in there!

Carl: It’s best if you go home. You seem very agitated and upset.

Deacon: I am agitated and upset because I think I’m losing my mind!

Carl: Okay. What can I do? How can I help you?

Deacon: Okay, you’re the one who did this, right?

Carl: Did what?

Deacon: You embalmed sheila. You’re responsible, right?

Carl: Yes, but–

Deacon: Okay, I need you to give me some answers because I think I’m losing my mind! I need your help, please! Please help me! Before my doctor and I chose breztri

Hope: You want me to promise you something?

Finn: It’s not as ominous as it seems, okay? Trust me. It’s just– look, we’re friends, right?

Hope: Of course.

Finn: And we want what’s best for each other. We care for each other, and whatever that might turn out to be.

Hope: Where are you going with this, finn?

Finn: It actually has to do with what happened with you and thomas, and the way steffy reacted.

Hope: You mean, uh, steffy not wanting me to be with her brother because she thinks I’m not good enough for him?

Finn: Well, the truth is– is I mean, I didn’t want you with him either. Not because you weren’t good enough for thomas, but because thomas wasn’t good enough for you.

Hope: Okay, so…

Finn: Okay, look, I guess what I’m saying is… our families are interconnected. We need to get along. And you and steffy especially. I mean, you guys work together, you practically see each other every day at forrester.

Hope: Yeah, we have a bit of a problematic history.

Finn: Well, that’s mainly because of liam, right? And people wanna make you guys out to be rivals because of that. It’s the same way your mom and taylor were for all those years. But you and steffy, you don’t need to fall into that same pattern. You are two strong, amazing women who should be supporting each other. Look, what I’m asking is just don’t hold a grudge against steffy for what went down with thomas. Things happen for a reason. Thomas is gone. Who knows who you’re gonna share your life with.

Hope: So, you just want me to promise you to be open to any possibility.

Finn: Exactly. Look, mr. Right, he might be waiting in the wings as we speak. Maybe someone unexpected, but maybe someone you know. I mean, look, that’s the beauty of life. It’s the mystery and the surprises that await us. I mean, look at steffy and me. I mean, she’s so different than any woman that I’d ever met. But one look at her, and I just knew. And the same thing can happen for you, if you let it.

Steffy: I’ve been cleared. I’ve been cleared.

Ridge: We all knew you would be. It’s all in your past now.

Steffy: Oh, god, you have no idea how much I wanted this. I never want to go through something like that ever again.

Ridge: You don’t have to. Sheila’s dead, never to return.

Sheila: Yeah, she’s dead, but in my mind she’s still there. Like, she still haunts me and i think about all the things that she’s done to me.

Ridge: Well, the only good thing she’s ever done was give birth to your husband.

Steffy: Yeah, a son that she’s never deserved.

Ridge: And you know what? It would’ve been better for him not to find out that that was his mother. What’s the good in that? He finds out that she pretended she was killed by bears, she cuts off her own toe. Who does that?

Deacon: I need some answers.

Carl: I’ll do what I can, but I need you to calm down first. I can’t have you grabbing me.

Deacon: Okay. I’m calm. I’m calm, okay? I need you to tell me what is going on.

Carl: I’ve explained this several times. The cremation process is–

Deacon: No, I get– get all of that! That’s not what I’m talking about! I need you to tell me what is going on. What is going on here, man? Tell me! (Clapping)

Finn: I just– I hate seeing you and steffy at odds. You’re better than that. And if it sounds like I’m looking out for my wife, yes, you bet I am. But I’m also looking out for you, hope.

Hope: Steffy is fortunate to have you.

Finn: Well, I’m fortunate to have her. She’s everything I could ever want.

Hope: Well, I’m sure she says the same about you, finn. I mean, look at you. You’re the total package. You’re a doctor, you’re smart, you’re charming, you’re handsome, you’re stable, you’re compassionate, you’re stable. People can rely on you. I mean, your actions would never hurt steffy or the kids.

Finn: No, of course, not. I mean, they’re my life. They’re the best part of my life.

Hope: Okay. I heard you. I will take what you have asked of me into consideration. I mean, in a perfect world, I would love not to be at odds with steffy or dredge up old animosities. But she did stick her nose in my business, just saying. But, um, yeah. I do want everyone to get along, too.

Finn: Good, see, I had a feeling you’d say that.

Hope: Gosh, you really did find the perfect profession, didn’t you? I mean, you just– you heal people. I– I myself feel much better after this unexpected doctor’s appointment, so… thank you.

Finn: You’re welcome.

Steffy: Oh, god, I just remember seeing sheila’s toe in that evidence container. It was just so disgusting. Like, the length that lunatic was willing to go. My god.

Ridge: Hey, we don’t have to worry about nine-toed sheila ever again.

Carl: I realize this is a difficult time and how upsetting the cremation process is.

Deacon: That’s not what I’m talking about. Yes, I mean, of course, the thought of sheila going through that creeps me out. But listen to me, what if it wasn’t her?

Carl: What?

Deacon: What if that wasn’t sheila that you were doing that to?

Carl: I don’t know what you’re saying, mr. Sharpe. It doesn’t make any sense!

Deacon: Okay, listen to me. My fiancée, sheila carter, you worked on her, right?

Carl: Yes.

Deacon: You did repairs to her, right?

Carl: Repairs?

Deacon: Yes, I mean, didn’t you do little enhancements, you know? Okay, I know you guys doll them up, right? You know, you put makeup on them and you fix their hair to make them more presentable, right?

Carl: Yes, but I still don’t know what you’re getting at.

Deacon: Would you ever, you know, add an appendage if one was missing?

Carl: An appendage?

Deacon: Yes, like a digit, you know?

Carl: A digit?

Deacon: Yes. Specifically, a right middle toe. Sheila was missing her right middle toe. Did you?

Carl: Absolutely not. We would never do anything like that.

[ Cell phone rings ]

Carl: I’m sorry. I need to take this.

Deacon: My eyes have gotta be playing tricks on me. Ten toes. Ten toes. I don’t care what you say. I saw ten toes.
