Finn: I, um, I know you’re working late, so… dinner’s already handled.

Steffy: Oh?

Finn: Yeah, just tell me when you’re on your way home and I’ll start heating it up.

Steffy: Takeout?

Finn: Mm-hmm. Yeah, il giardino. In retrospect, I probably should’ve ordered from that thai place we like.

Steffy: Why? Let me guess, you ran into deacon.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: And I’m sure he won’t let it go about sheila.

Eric: Lauren fenmore. You’re spoiling me, you know? Two trips to la in one month.

Lauren: Ah, you’re spoiling me. You made time for me both times.

Eric: Oh, yeah. It’s practically impossible to get you into my busy schedule.

Lauren: Well, it won’t be long. That is gonna be true. I mean, I think you look stronger and healthier than even the last trip.

Eric: Thank you.

Lauren: What are the doctors saying?

Eric: They’re pleased. I mean, nobody’s saying that I’m gonna be back to 100% anytime soon, but I’m gaining on it every day.

Lauren: I love it. I’m so happy for you. I mean, there’s so much to celebrate. There’s your good health. There’s your new marriage. And to top it all off, we don’t have to worry about sheila carter anymore.

Deacon: Who were you texting, sheila? Who the hell is sugar?

Zende: I know that you are frustrated and hurt, but don’t take it out on luna.

Poppy: The only reason that luna was in that guest house, the only reason that she confused zende for you, was because of my mints.

Zende: Luna would never willingly cheat on you. If I hadn’t been so caught up in the moment, the excitement of thinking that she chose me… there’s plenty of blame to go around, but not on her. Don’t you dare blame luna.

Rj: I don’t need you telling me what to do, zende.

Zende: I realize that. I just know that you feel–

Rj: No, you have no idea how I feel, ’cause you stabbed me in the back.

Zende: Not intentionally.

Rj: Yes, intentionally. Even if you thought she wanted you, you stabbed me in the back.

Zende: She was in my bed, saying that she was happy to see me. Or so I thought. I didn’t know that she was high on drugs, picturing you instead of me.

Rj: What did you do? Did you forget? Did you forget that she’s my girlfriend? No! You knew exactly what you were doing. And who you were doing it to. Your cousin!

Zende: I am sorry for that. And I hope that one day you can forgive me. I’ll understand if you can’T. Because you are right, it was a betrayal. On my part, not on luna’S. She’d never do that to you. You are so lucky, rj. Don’t blow this.

Lauren: You know, I saw steffy the last time I was here. And I told her she did us all a great favor by eliminating that monster. And she shouldn’t feel an ounce of guilt for it.

Eric: Yeah, well, that’s– that’s easy for you and me to say. But considering that sheila was her husband’s birth mother, um, I really have to wonder how finn is handling this death.

Lauren: Well, if he is mourning her in any way whatsoever, he’s most likely the only one in the world who is.

Eric: There is one other. One person who’s just not celebrating the demise of sheila carter. And it’s deacon sharpe.

Finn: Deacon’s in a bad place, and he’s struggling with sheila’s death.

Steffy: Okay, he’s still struggling. It’s like, the way this guy chooses to grieve, spouting off these crackpot theories. Like, he needs to stop this. He needs to stop spreading this nonsense that sheila is still alive.

Deacon: That face. It was you. I never left the room. I– I never left. It was you. Till it wasn’T. How did you suddenly have ten toes? Maybe finn’s right. Or maybe you are still out there. I’m not gonna give up, baby. I promise. Beyond covering grays my color needs to suit me.

Lauren: You know, it’s hard to wrap my head around someone actually falling for sheila.

Eric: All right, hang on there. You’re talking to someone who actually did.

Lauren: There’s no comparison. You were completely conned. You didn’t know the evil that she was capable of. You just– you saw a pretty nurse. Deacon, on the other hand, went willingly into a relationship with a psychopath.

Eric: Yeah.

Lauren: I don’t know what he was thinking. He risked his business and his family for sheila.

Eric: It’s hard to comprehend, I’ll grant you that.

Lauren: I mean, maybe one day he will realize how lucky he was that she died when she did before she completely upended his whole life. We did it, eric. We outlasted sheila. And there were times when I thought it was gonna go the other way.

Eric: But the good guys always win.

Lauren: Because we survived sheila carter.

Luna: I appreciate your support, zende. And I know that you’re coming from a good place. But… I don’t want rj to feel pressured.

Poppy: And I certainly don’t want to put any pressure on you either, rj. But you have to admit, if– if I had been more careful, then that night would never have happened. But that is on me. That is not on luna.

Rj: You’re right. You’re right, poppy. If it weren’t for your drugs, my world, our world, wouldn’t have been flipped upside down. I don’t want to hear another word from either of you.

Zende: Rj, if you listen for a second, we–

Rj: Shut up. Get out. I want to be alone with luna.

Poppy: Come on, zende. Let’s– let’s give them some time.

Zende: Rj. I know that your world has been rocked. It was a big misunderstanding. But don’t break luna’s heart over something that wasn’t even her fault.

Steffy: Do you think you got through to deacon at all?

Finn: [ Chuckles ] Uh, no. I think, if anything, he’s more convinced. He just– he can’t let go of the fact that he thinks he saw ten toes right before sheila was cremated.

Steffy: Look, I– I get that this has been hard for you. You know, picturing and… I’m just really trying to be understanding of the connection that you had to sheila.

Finn: No, look, I can tell. All right? And I appreciate it, yeah.

Steffy: Like you said, it’s– it is easier knowing that we don’t have to worry about sheila anymore.

Finn: Well, you know what else you don’t have to worry about? Are my focuses. Yeah, the death of my birth mother was a shock, and it’s disturbing to think about the details, but… I’m not gonna let that distract me. And I’m not gonna let deacon distract me, either. My focus is on you. And your happiness. And our kids’ happiness. And our life. And our family. And I just– I love you so much, sweetheart.

Steffy: I love you. I love you.

Lauren: You might wanna delete that. And any other awful reminder that she was ever in your life. Trust me. You are better off without sheila.

(“Three little birds” by bob marley & the wailers)

Luna: Will you ever be able to look at me the same? I know I’m not the honest woman that you once thought I was.

Rj: Stop, it’s not– that’s not what I think.

Luna: Are you sure? Because from how you were speaking with zende, I assumed that–

Rj: No, I– I don’t need him to tell me who you are. I know who you are. And I– I hate what happened. And I understand how it did. You didn’t knowingly cheat on me. But it doesn’t make it any less shocking or hurt any less. I don’t know where to go from here.

Finn: Okay, um… I should let you get back to it.

Steffy: You’ll be fine picking up the kids? I wish I could, but I have that conference call.

Finn: I got it, I got it. It’s not a problem. I mean, I think I might even have time for a swim beforehand. But I’m gonna get them fed. And bathed. And down. And then you and i can have a romantic dinner. Maybe open a bottle of wine. Get the fire going. A back rub…

Steffy: Oh, I would love a back rub. You’re making all my wishes come true.

Finn: Well, your wishes are pretty simple, aren’t they?

Steffy: Where’d you go?

Finn: No, um… uh, just speaking of wishes, something deacon said. He asked if part of me wished that my birth mother was still alive.

Steffy: How’d you respond?

Steffy: I told him it doesn’t matter how I feel. Sheila’s– sheila’s gone. And he needs to accept that. And get over it.

Steffy: Well, hopefully you got through to him.

Finn: I think it’s just too soon. He’s– he’s having a hard time accepting.

Steffy: Okay, look. Part of me, you know, I– I would understand where deacon is coming from. Because sheila’s history. She faked her death before. I get that. Part of me would listen to deacon. But I was there, finn. I lived it. Unlike deacon, I know exactly what happened.

Deacon: Well, well. Lauren fenmore, in the flesh.

Lauren: Deacon sharpe. This is long overdue.

Deacon: So, how are things in genoa city?

Lauren: Lately? Very calm. Just like in los angeles. You can feel this collective sigh of relief now that sheila’s dead. You don’t think I should be celebrating? Well, I do. And I’m not apologizing for it.

Deacon: Look, I know that your history with sheila was bad.

Lauren: Ugh, that’s putting it mildly.

Deacon: Okay, look. That might be what you remember her for, but there was a lot more to her than that.

Lauren: You know what? I don’t know how or why you fell for her. But there is one thing that I know for sure. Your life is better, safer, and healthier without her in it.

Deacon: You know what, you keep jumping for joy with everyone else who’s so thrilled that she’s gone. But what if she isn’t?

Lauren: Excuse me?

Deacon: What if sheila’s still alive? Try killing bugs the worry-free way.

Rj: I know that’s not what you’re hoping I’d say I just– I want to be honest with you. Just wish you would have told me right after it happened. Why didn’t you tell me?

Luna: I should’ve. Yeah, and I hope you know how much I regret not coming to you and trusting in you and in us. But, I don’t know. Keeping this secret was like literally making me sick. But I– I– I just– I wanted to protect your relationship with zende. I mean, you guys are cousins.

Rj: Any relationship I had with my cousin is history, I’ll tolerate him. I don’t want to talk about zende. I don’t care about him. I care about you and us and where we’re gonna go from here.

Luna: That’s exactly what I’ve been wondering.

Rj: This would be a lot easier if I didn’t love you so much. I don’t blame you. Actually, no, I’m still trying to make sense of all this. It’s just every time I look at you, I see you in zende’s bed, in his arms. I just– I need time.

Luna: Yeah, um, I understand. You know, I mean, I’ve– I’ve been living with this for a while now, and it’s still hard for me to even process. So, I can’t imagine how you… look, just know that I love you so much. I always will, no matter what you decide on.

Steffy: Deacon can create whatever imaginary story he wants in his head. But I was there. I had the knife in my hand. I saw sheila’s face. Look, finn, I– I know what I did. I defended myself. And if deacon were in my shoes, he would understand that. He wouldn’t question this. He would be as certain as I am. Because there is no doubt in my mind that sheila carter is dead.

Lauren: What did you say?

Deacon: What if sheila’s still alive.

Lauren: That’s ridiculous. Steffy killed her. There was no question. I talked to steffy. I heard what happened. She stabbed her in the heart. She saw her. She identified her. And from what I hear, so did you. Didn’t you go to the morgue?

Deacon: I did, yeah. I also went to the crematorium, and that’s where I saw her.

Lauren: So why do you have these stories in your head that she’s still alive, when you saw for yourself that she wasn’t? Look… I know you had feelings for her, and that’s why you’re holding out this false hope that she could possibly be alive. But deacon, what you had with her wasn’t real. And you should be so thankful that you never saw the monster that she was. If you even knew a fraction of what she did to me, the decades of torment…

[ Sighs ] Sheila is gone. She is out of our lives, and I never want to hear her name again.

Deacon: Does the name sugar mean anything to you?

Lauren: Sugar?

Deacon: Yes. What do you know about sugar? I need to know.
