Liam: I get that you meant to lay down the law with finn, but we’re still talking about his birth mother. You know, he does want to know her better. He does feel like he has this, whatever, connection with her. I just– I’m not– I don’t understand why you’re convinced that he can just ignore all those feelings.

Steffy: He’ll have to.

Liam: Because you gave him an ultimatum.

Steffy: Finn knows exactly where I stand. There’s only room for one of us in his life. One.

Liam: I get that you meant to lay down the law with finn, but we’re still talking about his birth mother. You know, he does want to know her better. He does feel like he has this, whatever, connection with her. I just– I’m not– I don’t understand why you’re convinced that he can just ignore all those feelings.

Steffy: He’ll have to.

Liam: Because you gave him an ultimatum.

Steffy: Finn knows exactly where I stand. There’s only room for one of us in his life. One. It’s either sheila, or me.

Finn: Your dad and my mom, like, this is really happening?

Hope: Apparently, wedding bells are imminent.

Finn: And deacon, he seriously, he wants us to be there. And, like, standing up for them.

Hope: Yeah, it’s a lot to ask, I know, but, I mean, is it something you would consider? Being my dad’s best man? I mean, especially given steffy’s feelings about sheila.

[ Finn scoffs ]

Deacon: Thanks, man.

Sheila: You didn’t, I mean, you didn’t really ask her.

Deacon: I want you to picture this, all right? It’s our special day, it’s our wedding, my daughter by your side, your son by mine.

Sheila: Oh, I am picturing it, it’s such a beautiful image, but, you know, the reality is, is the chances of hope ever being my maid of honor, and finn being your best man. Ooh, careful, pigs are flying.

Deacon: Hey, I’ve seen them fly, right? It could happen. You don’t ask, you don’t get. Let’s see what happens.

Sheila: I love you.

Deacon: I love you too.

Sheila: People say I’m crazy.

Deacon: I know they do.

Sheila: It’s you.

Deacon: Is it really? Come here, okay. Crazy broad.

Sheila: Did you call me a broad?

Deacon: I did.

Deacon: I haven’t actually spoken to finn yet.

Sheila: But hope is– is willing to talk to him?

Deacon: Look, I know how much it would mean to you to have him at our wedding, all right? Especially if he was my best man.

Sheila: That would be like a dream come true, really. But I– I can’t get excited.

Deacon: Because of steffy. Yeah.

Steffy: Liam, it won’t be a problem. Finn understands my feelings. He knows how destructive sheila is. All the horrible things she’s done to us over the years.

Liam: Nobody, but he’s saying she’s reformed now. That’s the problem, right? Like that her whole history of violence should just be forgotten because now sheila’s good.

Steffy: It’s never gonna be forgotten. Or forgiven.

Liam: By you. Yeah, but with finn. Okay, can I just put this in perspective? The woman shot him. Not too long ago. But finn is still gullible enough to think that she’s a normal, well-adjusted person now.

Steffy: Yeah, she supposedly risked her life to save me. Like, give me a break.

Liam: But he still believes it. And it’s worse than that. ‘Cause now he believes he has a second chance with his mother.

Steffy: No, no, no, liam. There’s no more chances. Sheila’s unfortunate resurrection, it doesn’t mean anything to me. Or to finn. Look, she is dangerous. And she is extremely unbalanced. I know finn’s gonna stay away from her.

Finn: So, what about you? You’re gonna be able to do it? You’re stand up there and be sheila’s maid of honor?

Hope: I don’t– I don’t know. Hey, I– I mean, I know I’m in an easier spot. Given that, you know, I don’t have a spouse forbidding me from being around her. But, I– I guess we’ll see. Look, I just– I wanted you to know. It’s on the table. And I am here for you if you need to talk about it. And weigh the pros and cons. Weigh your options. I am a safe place.

Finn: Thanks. Well, yeah, I mean, yeah, I’m– I’m torn. I mean, part of me wants to be there. I know it would mean the world to sheila if I supported her.

Hope: You think you can convince steffy that it’s a good idea?

Finn: Not likely. I believe sheila has changed and steffy doesn’T. And I’m afraid she never will.

Hope: That puts you in a tough spot.

Finn: Yeah. Look, as much as I might wanna say yes to this, I need to consider steffy’s feelings. She’s my wife. And my commitment is to her, first and foremost.

[] And after the last visit I had to

your foolish game.

Sheila: You know, the thought of finn coming to our wedding, my son that never gave up on me. To watch us exchange vows, start our life together, that just… I would want that so much.

Deacon: All right, then, you know what you gotta do? You gotta start thinking positively. You know, you just have to put that out in the universe. Just will it to happen.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, about that, positive thinking only gets you so far.

Deacon: Mm-hmm.

Sheila: You gotta be realistic. And after the last visit I had from my son’s lovely wife, I’m not sure that finn is gonna make it to our wedding, let alone as your best man.

Steffy: It’s ridiculous that sheila even thinks she can get away with manipulating finn with this whole, I’m good, charade.

Liam: Ridiculous that she thinks she can or ridiculous that she can, ’cause even if finn decides to do right by you and has nothing to do with sheila ever again, he still fell for the con.

Steffy: Oh my gosh, this whole I’m back from the dead thing, it’s like, it’s really affecting him, unfortunately.

Liam: Yeah, well, even more unfortunately, he’s not the only one.

Steffy: Well, deacon is a lost cause. He’s always been. He’s never gonna see sheila for who she truly is.

Liam: Oh god, I wish I was talking about deacon. No, sadly, uh, kinda seems like hope is falling for it too.

Steffy: What?

Liam: Yeah, hope. As in, hope. Um, at least she seems to be considering it, this absurd idea that sheila is somehow changed.

Hope: I think it’s pretty wonderful the way you’re always trying to put steffy’s needs first.

Finn: Well, we’re married, it’s important. And even if I believe in sheila, I can understand why she would be hesitant. And I have to respect that and hope that eventually she’ll see what I do. Right, maybe they’ll have a long engagement and it’ll give me some time to change steffy’s mind.

Hope: I don’t know, they seem pretty eager to get this next chapter started.

Finn: Hmm. And when do you think you’ll decide whether or not you’re gonna go?

Hope: I don’t know. I know I want to discuss it with my mother first, get her opinion, but honestly, believe it or not, I think I am leaning towards going.

Finn: Really?

Hope: Yeah.

[ Hope laughs ]

Hope: You seem surprised.

Finn: No, I mean, I’m– I’m not surprised that you wanna be there for your dad. I know how much you care about him and how much you value the relationship that you’ve fostered now that you’re an adult, but hope, this is not some everyday wedding. I mean, it’s not like he’s marrying a soccer mom from the suburbs. If you go, you’re gonna be showing that you support him marrying sheila cotter. Is that like something you can see yourself doing?

Hope: Yeah, I… I just want my dad to be happy. And besides, love is love, right?

Finn: Indeed.

Hope: And they are our parents, so…

Finn: You all right?

Hope: Yeah, it’s just… sorry, these headaches that I’ve been getting, just…

Finn: Headaches? Okay, well… hope?

Hope: Hmm.

Finn: Do you know where you are? And who you’re talking to? Why didn’t you just mention that earlier?

Hope: No! No, no, I don’t wanna bother you with this.

Finn: Bother me? Come on, come on, what’S…

Hope: No, it’s– it’s nothing, really.

Finn: Really? You wouldn’t like to have a second opinion, maybe from, I don’t know, a doctor?

Hope: All right, if you’re offering.

Finn: Look, let me take a look, I’ll just… I can see if I can help. Depression is a journey. for her the bestn: All kidding aside,

Deacon: All kidding aside, I don’t need to be worried here, do I?

Sheila: About?

Deacon: About steffy, about your tone. Look, don’t let your feelings for her the best of you.

Sheila: I have nothing but the utmost respect for my beautiful daughter-in-law.

Deacon: Oh, yeah, no, sure, of course. With maybe just a little tiny bit of frustration, which I get, it’s totally justified, all right? You’ve done everything you can to prove that you’re not the woman who made all those mistakes all those years ago, all right? You practically risked your life. You protected- you protected her from sugar, from harming her. I get it.

Sheila: Yeah, but that doesn’t matter. Not to her. Steffy doesn’t care. I mean, she still sees me as finn’s psycho birth mother that kept her away from her mother when she was young.

Deacon: Oh, okay, but that’s not true. All right, look. Maybe some of it’s true, all right? I mean, you can’t ignore the reality that some of the things that you did in the past have had a lasting effect on steffy and her family. But here’s the good news, all right? She cannot continue to ignore the fact that you’re not the same person, that you have changed, all right? Don’t let her stand in the way of all the progress that you’ve made.

Sheila: But don’t let her, huh? Even though she’s the one person standing between myself and a relationship with my son.

Steffy: You can’t be serious. Hope thinks sheila’s changed?

Liam: Well, I wouldn’t go that far yet. Uh, but is she considering it? Yeah, it kinda seems like she’s considering it.

Steffy: Okay, she is spending way too much time with her father. This must be deacon’s influence, right?

Liam: Yeah, and if it is, um, it’s disconcerting for me, too.

Steffy: Okay, did hope tell you this? What happened?

Liam: She literally spoke to sheila. Like, she talked to her. Sheila told hope her side of the whole story with the– you know, that she tried so hard to stop sugar from attacking you.

Steffy: Okay, whatever, supposedly.

Liam: Laughably.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh. Why is everyone trying to make sheila, like, out like some hero? Sheila is the exact opposite.

Liam: Yeah, no argument here.

Steffy: Oh, this is blowing my mind. So wait, so– so– did hope, like, feel a type of way? Did she feel, I don’t know, ashamed for saying that? Maybe a little guilty?

Liam: No, because she wasn’t making any firm declarations. It was more just like– like, let’s put this on the table. Let’s think out loud. I’m just– you know, trying to keep an open mind.

Steffy: Oh, she better not have an open mind around my husband and lead him down a wrong path. Okay. Okay, if she wants to follow in her daddy’s footsteps and be all team sheila, have at it. But she better not speak to my husband. No, the last thing my husband needs is hope’s bad influence.

Hope: If you think you can fix these headaches, then please be my guest.

Finn: Well, how often are you getting them? Are we, like, talking daily?

Hope: These days, just about.

Finn: And based on the way you reacted, I’m guessing it’s a sharp pain?

Hope: Yeah, most of the time, but then it goes away.

Finn: You drinking enough water?

Hope: Oh yeah, yeah, I’m hydrated. I even have an app that tracks that sort of stuff.

Finn: Are you taking anything for them?

Hope: Um, only when it’s really bad.

Finn: Okay, well, good– good, stick with that. I don’t wanna prescribe something that’s not absolutely necessary.

Hope: I would like to avoid that as well. Um, actually, I was thinking about starting acupuncture.

Finn: Yeah, that’s actually a good idea. I’ve had some patients who’ve benefited. I’m– I’m a big believer in acupuncture and massage. Actually, do you trust me?

Hope: Maybe.

Finn: I’ve been told these hands work wonders.

Hope: Okay, I guess in that case, I trust you. Diabetes can serve up a lot of questions.

Sheila: Don’t worry.

Deacon: Let’s go with this one, okay? You are not doing a lot to ensure confidence in me.

Sheila: Don’t worry. No, seriously, come on, I’ve got too much good in my life right now. Got too many blessings to let someone like steffy throw me off track.

Deacon: Even though she’s the one person who’s standing in between you and the thing that you want most in this world?

Sheila: No, what I want most in my world is right here, standing in front of me. My soon-to-be husband, who is loving and devoted, and regardless of what steffy thinks or wants, finn is too. I mean, she may be successful in, you know, not allowing him to come to our wedding, but she’s never gonna be able to– to come between us. He’s not gonna stop caring about me and believing in me. Do I wish steffy felt differently? Absolutely, I do. But I am not going to allow anyone or anything to destroy this incredibly happy little life I’ve got going.

Deacon: That’s my girl.

Sheila: Especially someone like steffy forrester.

Steffy: Ooh, I should’ve seen this coming.

Liam: Seen what coming? Her thinking maybe sheila’s changed? Why would you? It’s not a sane idea.

Steffy: No, no, no, it’s just the– just the things– just the things hope has been saying lately. Lecturing me, warning me not to discard finn’s complicated feelings towards his birth mother.

Liam: No.

Steffy: Gosh, now, this is– this really pisses me off.

Liam: Well, okay, it’s hope, right? I mean, you know, it could be she just– she has your and finn’s best interests, like your marriage.

Steffy: She doesn’t have our best interests. Liam, come on. God, this makes me– this makes me so angry. And that she’s buying into what, all this sheila nonsense? Are you kidding me? If she tries to get into finn’s head, if she tries to say one thing about sheila being new and improved, you know what? She better not say anything at all. Nothing. No, she needs to stay away from him, ’cause this– this could be really dangerous. No, she needs to stay away from finn altogether.

Finn: Um, most headaches originate in the pain-sensing nerves of the muscles and the blood vessels surrounding the head, neck, and face. Like, they’re often triggered by stress and muscle tension, but allergies can be a factor, sleep deprivation.

Hope: Well, I’m not sure about allergies, but stress could definitely be the cause.

Finn: Yeah, you’ve had a lot of that lately.

Hope: Yeah, I mean, obviously the whole situation with thomas. Not to mention douglas being halfway across the world, me worrying about him daily. Not to mention work, and all my concerns about hope for the future.

Finn: Wow, sounds like you’ve got a lot on your plate. Look, don’t overdo it, okay? Seriously, you gotta– you gotta cut some time out for yourself.

Hope: Oh, you mean coming in here for some head massage?

Finn: Well, yeah, does it feel better?

Hope: Actually, yeah.

Finn: Yeah, good. I mean it, though. You can’t forget to prioritize yourself from time to time, okay? And look, just try not to stress out about things you can’t control. Like thomas, for example. Look, you know where I stand on him, and I realize I’m talking about my wife’s brother, and it’s hypocritical of me considering I believe that my birth mother has changed. But look, if thomas is causing you this much stress, you need to let it go. Let him go. Hope, you are so beautiful, and kind, and passionate, and committed to what you do. And you fight hard to make a difference in people’s lives every day. All the while, you have a smile that lights up the world. No, you deserve the best, hope, the absolute best. And I just– I still don’t think it’s thomas. Look, someone special is gonna come along right when you least expect it, you’ll see. I’m certain of it. And whoever he is, he’ll be thankful. And because he will know how fortunate he is. Hope, any man would be lucky to be with you.
