Finn: I can’t thank you enough, hope, for just– for listening and understanding and not judging me.

Hope: Well, I mean, I’m still waiting for the shock to wear off. I– I was not expecting to see sheila standing here when I walked in, so I can only imagine how you must be feeling. A thousand different ways. I mean, your birth mother. I’m sure you must be relieved that she’s alive.

Finn: Yeah. I mean, I’ve been mourning her death for weeks, but now that she’s back, I have a chance for her to be a part of my life.

Hope: Look, I’m not telling you not to be excited, but at the same time, I think we– we need to acknowledge the fact that, uh, steffy despises sheila and she might not exactly be understanding about your feelings.

Steffy: She can literally talk me into anything. I told her no more toys under any circumstance.

Liam: You left the store with a toy, didn’t you?

Steffy: No, I left with three toys.

[ Liam laughs ] Oh, my goodness.

Liam: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I’m still washing off the, uh, giant fairy tattoo she drew all over my back in permanent marker. I would show you, but I don’t trust you not to take a photo.

Steffy: What would I do without you? Thank you.

Liam: For what?

Steffy: Taking my mind off sheila.

Deacon: Say yes. Say you’ll marry me.

Sheila: Deacon. I–

Deacon: I’m so thrilled that you’re home. I just want to finish what we started, this little life that we’re building together. Baby, I want to share all of it with you. Let’s make it official, for real this time. Say you’ll marry me. Say you’ll be my wife.

Deacon: We both know this wasn’t my first proposal. It wasn’t that long ago that I was skittish because I– I didn’t think that I could get married without my daughter’s approval. And that wasn’t fair to put you in that position because you deserve more. Baby, you deserve the entire world and that’s what I want to give you. Full and complete commitment. That’s what I want to give you right now. I understand if you have second thoughts, but I’m ready. I want this. I want you.

Steffy: I know sheila’s dead, but I– I can’t stop the constant stream of these thoughts swirling in my head.

Liam: Well, you will eventually, right? Because she can’t hurt you anymore. She can’t scare you anymore. Sheila doesn’t have power over you anymore.

Steffy: Or finn.

Hope: I am not trying to be a downer.

Finn: No, I hear you.

Hope: I just think we should be realistic. And I get that you’re grateful to find out that sheila’s alive.

Finn: How many people get a second chance like this? And yes, we were total strangers for almost my entire life, but… and yeah, a lot– a lot has happened. Sheila’s done a million awful things, but I don’t want to spend this next chapter hating her and punishing her. I’m her son. We have a connection.

Hope: Well, maybe so, but… I mean, how– how do you think steffy is going to react when you tell her that sheila is alive? Ready to switch?

Sheila: You’re making it so hard not to say yes.

Deacon: Well, then say yes.

Sheila: I want to. I– I– more than you know.

Deacon: Come on, we’ve already had one miracle today. Let’s keep the momentum going here, you know? Let’s not waste another second. Baby, I’ll take care of you. I will spend the rest of my life making you happy.

Sheila: I know that. I know that we would be happy together, deacon. It’s just that I can’t hide my love for you, our relationship. I can’t live like that anymore.

Deacon: Oh, you know what? I can’t do that either. So forget about that. No more keeping it a secret. Listen, I am proud of you. I’m proud of us. Everything that we’ve survived. Against all odds, the misfit couple of L.A. What the hell do we care? Look, I know that hope will come around sooner or later. And the rest of them? Well, screw them because I will be so proud to be your husband. I’ll post it on social media. I’ll take out a billboard. I’ll scream it from the rooftops. Hey, world! I want to marry this woman!

Sheila: Okay, stop!

Deacon: I want sheila carter to be my wife!

Sheila: All right, all right.

Deacon: What do you say?

Sheila: I get it, I believe you. Yes.

Deacon: You do? So…

Sheila: I say yes. I say yes. Of course, I’m gonna marry you.

[ Both laugh ] I love you.

Deacon: I love you too.

Liam: Well, sheila’s death certainly, uh, frees up some emotional space, doesn’t it?

Steffy: Yeah, you’re right. Finn and I can finally relax. We can focus on our family, our relationship, our future.

Liam: Our future without his psychopath mom.

Steffy: Oh, gosh. I will never understand his tie to his mother. Do I wish she didn’t exist? Absolutely. But I do know that finn loves us. I know he is committed to his family. And I’m really starting to see finn moving on. Leaving sheila in the past.

Hope: Who knew my dad was such a savvy detective, right? I mean, finding articles about sugar, tracing credit cards. I mean, honestly, I’M… kind of impressed.

Finn: Look, if it wasn’t for deacon, sheila would still be in that warehouse. He saved her. I mean, he’s a legitimate hero.

Hope: Well, just wait ’til everyone finds out.

Finn: No, I know. I know. I’m bracing myself. And I know there’s gonna be a lot of unhappy people.

Hope: Namely your wife. Just preparing you for it.

Finn: No, I know. But I’m hoping that she’ll realize that sheila offered her life to protect her and the kids. And I think she’ll be relieved that she didn’t kill my birth mother.

Hope: I– I hope she will be grateful about that last part.

Finn: Look, I know it’s not gonna be easy, but I have to believe that someday I will be able to get through to steffy and she’ll be able to understand and support my need to help and to have my mom in our lives.


Sheila: I am never gonna take this for granted ever again. It’s– it’s, you know, it’s the simple pleasure I– it’s all I need. What a difference a day makes.

Deacon: You got that right, mrs. Sharpe.

Sheila: I like the sound of that.

Liam: In spite of whatever nonsense deacon is spewing, you really can let your guard down now.

Steffy: Yeah, my husband can finally put his family first. No more of sheila’s manipulations. No more of deacon’s delusions. Like, I know my husband. I know how much he loves us and he’s not gonna put me or the children at risk.

Liam: Well, that’s gotta be a good feeling.

Steffy: It is. I– I’m sorry. I just, I’ve been rambling so much. Thank you for letting me vent.

Liam: Yeah, any time. Seriously.

Steffy: No, I really appreciate it. Well, I’m gonna go. I’m gonna see finn. Tonight is all about reconnecting.

Finn: Look, I save lives for a living. I give people second, third chances. I believe in the power of the body and the soul to heal and to grow, so I believe that for sheila. And I think it’s time we put the past behind us. Sheila’s learned her lesson. She’s reformed. Look, the fact that she offered her own life to defend steffy and kelly and hayes, it says it all.

Hope: I mean, the entire situation is pretty incredible.

Finn: Yeah, and I just, I need to get steffy to realize that. Plus, I think she’s gonna be relieved that she didn’t kill my birth mother.

Hope: I hope you’re right. I mean, I– I hope she is going to be able to empathize and see your perspective.

Finn: Well, I know you’re pulling for me.

Hope: Yeah, I just want what’s best for you.

Finn: Well, I appreciate it. I appreciate you really hearing me and not thinking I’m nuts.

[ Hope laughs ]

Hope: Oh, well, I’ve seen worse. I could never think that about you. I’m just glad that you’re comfortable sharing all this with me.

Finn: How are you feeling? Any dizziness from fainting?

Hope: I’m okay. You did a good job taking care of me.

Finn: It’s my job.

Hope: Well, if you ever need anyone to talk to, you know who to call.

Finn: Hey, hope. You’re the best. Hey, come here.

Hope: Aw.

Finn: Thank you. No, seriously. Wild turn of events, huh?

Hope: I’ll say.

Finn: Okay, I’m gonna head home and I’m gonna tell steffy the good news.

Hope: Good luck.

Finn: It’s all gonna work out. You’ll see.

Hope: Well, for your sake, I hope so.

[ Finn chuckles]

Did you know…

Sheila: I can’t get enough of this.

Deacon: Well, get ready for a lifetime of moments like this, sweetheart. Because, baby, this is just the beginning.

Sheila: I was so worried I’d never see you again.

Deacon: You were worried? I thought you were dead. I threw you a funeral. There was this part of me that just, I– I could feel that you were out there somewhere.

Sheila: It’s because you never lost faith in me.

Deacon: No. I woke up this morning convinced that you were alive. I just… I wasn’t sure that I could find you in time, and if I did, what condition you’d be in. And now here you are, next to me, engaged to be my wife again.

Sheila: Little correction, you’re engaged to be my husband.

Deacon: Oh, for better or for worse.

[ Both chuckle ]

Sheila: I’m so glad to have you in my life. I really thought that I was going to die in that warehouse and that I had no chance to stop sugar from hurting steffy and the children. But the thought of you, it’s really what kept me going. Your love for me because you have always stood by my side, no matter what.

Deacon: I will always be by your side. Always and forever. And now, it’s not just me. Now, you have finn. Your son will stand by you too.

Sheila: I’ve wanted his love for so long.

Deacon: I know and now you have it.

Sheila: Yeah, now–

Deacon: Totally, unconditionally.

Sheila: I have my people. I finally have a family. You know, you and finn, you accept me with all of my flaws. And that’s all I’ve ever wanted, is to be loved and truly loved. I feel like I don’t have to go through life on my own anymore. I– I– I have hands to hold and I’ve got shoulders to lean on.

Deacon: You’ve got people who care about you.

Sheila: Baby, you saved me. You and my son saved me.

[ Hope sighs ]

Hope: I can’t believe my dad was right. Sheila is… sheila’s alive.

Finn: I’m bracing myself and I know there’s going to be a lot of unhappy people.

Hope: Namely your wife, just preparing you for it.

Finn: I know it’s not going to be easy, but I have to believe that someday, I will be able to get through to steffy and she’ll be able to understand and support my need to help and to have my mom in our lives.

Hope: I hope steffy doesn’t disappoint you, finn.

[ Phone pings ]

[ Door opens ]

Finn: Hey.

Steffy: Hi.

[ Steffy laughs ] I talked to the kids. They’re at grandma li’s, so it’s just us.

Finn: Candles?

Steffy: Yeah. What’s gotten into you?

Finn: You got my message?

Steffy: Yeah. You couldn’t wait to see me.

Finn: Well, I can never wait to see my gorgeous and understanding wife.

Steffy: Lucky me. You, uh, you want some wine?

Finn: Um, no, I think I’m– I think I’m okay for right now. I’m just, um, a little fired up.

Steffy: Really?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: I have to say, I haven’t talked to you for so long. I mean, you seemed really distracted this morning, and I finally just got a text from you now.

Finn: I was just– I was dealing with something, but it was next level, okay? Like, miraculous.

Steffy: It was like a patient or something? Let me guess, you were saving a life.

Finn: Well, I definitely did that today.

Steffy: What’s your motto? No one is a lost cause?

Finn: Yeah, I– I try to see the good in everyone, right? Look at their potential and their ability to learn from their mistakes and if they can grow to lead a productive, happy life, yeah.

Steffy: That’s really beautiful. And I love that about you. I love how compassionate you are. Wait– oh, my gosh. You are a completely different person from this morning.

Finn: Yeah, um, I am. I am different. My whole world has shifted in the most– the surprising way.

Steffy: Why? What happened? Tell me.

Finn: I have unbelievable news. And I didn’t believe it at first, and you probably won’t either, but, um, it’s amazing. Steffy, it’s truly amazing.
