[ Sentimental music ]

Thomas: Marry me, hope. I have loved you for as long as I can remember. I promise to you that I will be a wonderful husband and a father, a great father. Say you’ll marry me, hope. Say you’ll be my wife.

Steffy: Yep. Yeah, that’s great. Okay, well send me a list of your preferred photographers and we’ll get back to you. All right. Thank you so much, marianne. All right, bye. Liam, what brings you here?

Liam: Uh, I was gonna come up with an excuse, like I’m dropping something off for kelly, but truth is, I just, uh, I know you’ve got a lot going on and um, I’m a bit concerned. I mean, what happened to sheila is one thing, but especially finn’s reaction to her death.

Finn: Hey, I’m sorry luna’s upset with you. I mean, I know you guys are so close. To be honest, you’re more like sisters than mother and daughter.

Poppy: I know, but with this, she doesn’t want to talk to me. She wants to talk to her dad.

Finn: And that has something to do with me?

Luna: I’m sorry.

Bill: Why? You have nothing to apologize for.

Luna: I don’t know, because I’m all emotional in front of you and you barely even know me.

Bill: Well, I’d like to get to know you better. I’m not your father. But, I could be a shoulder for you to cry on. Or maybe cry over, because I do kinda like this shirt. I don’t want you to ruin it. You can talk to me, luna.

Finn: I mean, you and luna are family. If you guys are having any kind of trouble, I want to help fix it any way I can. I’m just– I’m just not seeing what I can do, exactly.

Poppy: You can give luna what she’s looking for. What she wants more than anything. Talk to her, finn.

Luna: You’re being really nice.

Bill: Do me a favor, keep that to yourself. I have a reputation to uphold.

Luna: Don’t worry, I’m not gonna tell anyone how nice you are about listening to my problems.

Bill: It doesn’t cost me a thing. And who knows, I mean, maybe i can offer you some actual help. Or at least a little guidance.

Luna: It’s just been really frustrating. You know, because all my life, my mom has been like my best friend. Someone that I can confide in, someone that I can talk to about literally anything. Um, but now…

Bill: You wish you had your father to turn to.

Luna: Yeah, but my mom won’t tell me who he is.

Steffy: I appreciate your concern.

Liam: But you’re about to tell me there’s no reason to be.

Steffy: There isn’T. Not in the long run. Sheila’s death has presented a bit of a problem, but we’re gonna get through it. My relationship is fine with finn. I’m not worried about us. I’m worried about thomas.

Liam: What’s wrong with thomas?

Steffy: What do you think? Hope. Hope is wearing thomas’ engagement ring on a chain around her neck. I mean, that is ridiculous. You know she doesn’t really love him. She’s just leading him on. She’s never gonna truly commit herself to him.

Thomas: I designed that dress for what I hope will be one of the most important occasions of our lives. And you look more beautiful than I ever could’ve imagined. By the way, I love you so much. And I know I’ve said that a thousand times, but I… it couldn’t hurt to say it one more, right? I do. I love you. Now, this ring has been around your neck for, I think, long enough. It deserves to be on your hand. I want the world to see us walking into the future together, hand in hand, side by side. All you have to do is say you’ll marry me.

Finn: You want me to talk to luna?

Poppy: Yes.

Finn: Sure, I’m more than happy to spend time with her. But if the person she wants to talk to is her dad… and look, I don’t mean to pry, but do you– do you know– do you know who luna’s father is?

Luna: What do you think, bill? I mean, don’t you think I have the right to know who my father is?

Bill: What I think doesn’t matter. This is between you and your mom. But I was curious enough to ask poppy if it was me. The timing works. The night we spent together at the festival. And when you were born.

Luna: She said it wasn’T.

Bill: Right.

Luna: God. This is just so unfair. You know, whoever he is, I’m his daughter. You know, I feel like we deserve to know each other. My mom was just wrong for keeping us apart.

Bill: Did you ever think that maybe poppy knows something that you don’t?

Luna: What, like you mean like he’s a bad person?

Bill: Not necessarily that. Look, this is what I know. Your mom loves you more than anything. I’m sure she has your best interests at heart.

Steffy: I want thomas to be happy. I want him to find peace, love, family, but hope is stringing him along.

Liam: Well, I want hope to not be with thomas at all, so there’s that. Eh, maybe if I handled things differently.

Steffy: What are you talking about? Please, hope always acts like she’s the victim here, lamenting the end of your marriage when she was the one who kissed thomas in rome. She’s not so innocent.

Liam: Thank you for acknowledging that. Not many people do.

Steffy: No, I’m just losing patience here. She already messed with your emotions, now she’s doing the exact same thing to thomas. She’s leading him on. Making him believe there’s a chance that she’s gonna marry him.

Thomas: We have wasted enough time, hope. I wanna be a family. You, me, douglas and beth, so say you’ll marry me. This is a make it, break it moment. You and me, together. I want to spend the rest of our lives with each other. Say you’ll be my wife.

Hope: I love you. Thomas, I– I really do. But I… I can’t accept your proposal. I’m– I’m not ready. Why do dermatologists worldwide recommend

Poppy: If I told you that luna was conceived in love, would that answer your question?

Finn: I mean, I just– I don’t get it. You had to have known the day would eventually come when luna would want to know who her father is, so why not just let it happen?

Poppy: Because it’s always just been luna and me. The two of us were always enough.

Finn: Maybe for you, but I could see a world where luna wouldn’t wanna upset you by admitting that she– that she did need him.

Poppy: What she needs is a strong male presence in her life. She loves you, finn, and she looks up to you, and you could easily fill those shoes. Please, will you do it? Will you be that male presence in my daughter’s life?

Luna: I’m sorry. You– you came here to see my mom and instead you got me crying over a father that I’ve never known.

Bill: I don’t mind. I kind of like being someone you can trust with your feelings.

Luna: You know, you have really kind eyes. It’s probably the first thing my mom saw when she first met you all those years ago. My mom always says that the, uh, the eyes are the window to the soul.

Bill: I don’t know that my eyes have always revealed the best part of me. But they did that night that I first looked at your mom. And maybe that’s why she returned the favor. You know, she hasn’t changed. I mean, she’s still that same take me or leave me breath of fresh air. And– and I’m– I’m pretty guarded with women at this point in my life.

Luna: Why’s that?

Bill: Money. I have it and a lot of women want it.

Luna: Well, my mom doesn’t really care about money.

Bill: Yeah, that’s one of the reasons I’m so drawn to her. Your mom is an incredible woman and she has raised an equally remarkable daughter.

Steffy: Hope has been out of control since she broke up with you. Now, she’s laser focused on thomas and thomas believes that they actually have a future together. I don’t believe that. I think he is in for a world of hurt.

Liam: Or she is, or they both are, I– whatever. I think we can both agree that hope and thomas is a toxic combination.

Hope: Thomas, I’m sorry. The last thing I would ever want to do is hurt you and I can tell that I have.

Thomas: You’re turning me down again.

Hope: Again, please understand. It has nothing to do with you. You, you’re amazing. And you’re wonderful and the time that we share together, it brings me so much joy and happiness. And I know– I know that you love me unconditionally and it means the world. But I just got out of a marriage. And I’m trying to focus on myself and the kids and my career and– and my relationship to you. Thomas, I love you. I love you. I just– I’m not– I’m not ready for a forever commitment. I’m sorry, but I can’t be. I’m sorry.

Thomas: No.

Hope: I’m sorry, thomas, wait!

If you have chronic

kidney disease you can reduce

Finn: You don’t even have to ask. Of course, I’ll be there for luna, anytime she needs me. And even when she thinks she doesn’T.

Poppy: Thank you. No, really, that means a lot. Thank you.

Finn: No, and hey, I mean, you looked after me when I was her age. All the time we spent together, how close we became.

Poppy: Yeah, and look at us now, all these years later. You’re a brilliant doctor with a beautiful family and I have a grown up daughter with a mind of her own. And I miss the days when luna would take her lead from me.

Finn: You said that she’s always been curious about her father.

Poppy: Yeah, but I’ve always been able to steer her off that path. But, I don’t know, this time– this time feels different.

Finn: You know what, I think, just go with it. Respectfully, as luna’s cousin, I think it’s time that she finds out who her father really is.

Bill: When you find your dad, and I believe that one day you will, he’s going to be so happy and proud to call you his daughter. What? What– what– what did I say? I don’t want to upset you. You see, I’m– I’m just so clumsy.

Luna: No, no, no, you didn’t upset me. I mean, you did, but in a good way. Because you’re so kind and caring, and obviously I’m an emotional wreck right now, so…

Bill: Tell me what I can do. How can I help you without stepping on poppy’s toes?

Luna: I don’t know.

Bill: Well, if you think of something, don’t hesitate.

Luna: I really like you, bill. I mean, what if you were my father?

Bill: Well, among other things, you would be filthy rich.

Luna: Well, I’m kind of like my mom in that way. I don’t really care about money, so…

Bill: Ah, well, there you have it. You’re not my daughter.

Steffy: Thomas, what is it? What’s wrong?

Thomas: I– I don’t know. I was just– I was so excited. I was– I was so ready, I… knew what I wanted, and it didn’t happen.

Steffy: What didn’t?

Thomas: I’m such an idiot. I, uh, I asked hope to marry me again.

Steffy: And she turned you down again. Oh, god. I knew this was gonna happen, thomas. You don’t deserve any of this. I mean, she is bad news.

Thomas: I don’t get it. I don’t understand what I did wrong. Like, I– I gave her the ring. She’s– she’s been wearing it.

Steffy: She’s been wearing it as a necklace, thomas.

Thomas: I offered it to her and she didn’t refuse it. There was a potential for a future. She didn’t just reject it or something.

Steffy: Okay, thomas, thomas, this really has to stop, okay? You’re setting yourself up for heartbreak over and over again. Hope is never gonna give you what you want.

Thomas: Don’t say that.

Steffy: It’s true. And what she did just proves it. She claims to love you, but she’s never going to commit herself to you. So you need to let her go, okay? You need to move forward. Focus on the future without hope.

Luna: My mom doesn’t understand how hard it’s been. I mean, my whole life, not knowing who my father is. I just– I’m so sorry you came here looking for her and you got all this.

Bill: No, no, no, it’s okay. I– I just hate seeing you so upset.

Luna: We never fight. Never. But I just– I couldn’t pretend like it doesn’t bother me anymore.

Bill: Your mom loves you. You’re gonna work this out.

Luna: I just wish I could talk to my father.

Poppy: Finn.

Finn: Hey, aunt poppy.

Poppy: Hi.

Finn: I– come in, I… it’s all right. I didn’t know you were coming by.

Poppy: Oh. You didn’t get my text?

Finn: Uh, no, I went out for a surf. I haven’t checked my phone. Damn. It’s good to see you.

Poppy: Yeah, it’s great to see you. Did you catch any waves?

Finn: Uh, yeah, yeah. I was just, um, yeah, just trying to– trying to clear my head.

Poppy: Yeah, I can’t imagine. I’m sorry.

Finn: If you’re looking for my mom, I think she’s at work.

Poppy: Um, no. I actually needed someone who would listen and be understanding, which unfortunately is not my sister.

Finn: Hey, what’s going on? What’s wrong?

Poppy: It’s luna.

Ridge: Wow. You must’ve been thinking about someone very special when you designed this one.

Thomas: Hope. Always hope. You know, when I’m not seeing her and she’s not around me, I’m just waiting until I can see her again, you know?

Ridge: You really are smitten, aren’t you?

Thomas: A bit. I think she feels the same. I’ve never had a woman care about me the way that hope does.

Ridge: Well, I’m pulling for both of you.

Thomas: Thanks.

Hope: Have you ever seen me like this?

Brooke: Not in a long time.

Hope: It’s because I haven’t been this happy in a long time, and that’s because of thomas. Look, mom, I know you don’t wanna hear this, but it’s the truth. He’s good for me. We’re– we’re good for each other. So please, can you stop fighting it? Can you support my relationship with thomas?

Thomas: You know, you were one of the first people to jump on board. Wish us well.

Ridge: You’re my boy. I believe in you. Always have your back.

Thomas: Well, your encouragement means the world, and I don’t know where I’d be without it.

Ridge: You know what I learned over the years? Life is short. Find your future. Grab it. Hold on to it.

Thomas: That’s exactly what I intend to do today.

Brooke: I can’t deny what a great place you’re in, and beth and douglas seem to be thriving too.

Hope: Thomas is wonderful with the kids.

Brooke: And thomas seems to be in a better place as well.

Hope: What is this I’m hearing? Is this progress?

Brooke: I’m trying. I’m trying. As surprised as I am, I can’t deny the positive impact that he’s had on your life.

Hope: Honestly, mom, thank you. I can tell you’re making an effort, and this really has been a wonderful time in my life, and I want to be able to share that with you.

Brooke: Honey, I just love you so much. I want you to be happy.

Hope: And I am happy. I’m so, so happy, and in large part that is because of thomas.

Finn: Is everything okay with luna? She’s not– she’s not sick or anything?

Poppy: No, but she is hurt and disappointed.

Finn: What, by rj?

Poppy: No… by me. I’ve let my daughter down, finn, and for the first time in her life, it’s not me she wants to talk to. It’s her father.

Bill: Your father.

Luna: I’ve always been able to turn to my mom, you know, share anything and everything with her, but this time it’s different.

Bill: Because you and poppy had a fight. I know you wish you could talk to your dad. I’m not your dad, but if I concentrate really hard, I think I could be a good listener. Moving forward with node-positive

Ridge: Wow, look at you. Look how gorgeous you are.

Brooke: Oh, thank you. You’re as handsome as ever.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Yeah. Hmm. So how’s your day going?

Ridge: It’s, uh, pretty good.

Brooke: Yeah?

Ridge: How do you get better looking every time I see you?

Brooke: I need to come back in here more often in between meetings.

Ridge: Yeah, you should.

Brooke: It’s very special.

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: So, uh, I had an interesting conversation with hope.

Ridge: About what?

Brooke: About her and thomas.

Ridge: That’s funny. I had that same conversation with my son.

Brooke: Oh?

Ridge: I’m convinced that he’s completely devoted to her.

Brooke: You might be right.

Thomas: Good, you’re here.

Hope: Promise me you will always be this excited to see me.

Thomas: I promise.

[ Hope squeals ] Hmm…

Hope: What’s got you in such a good mood today? And, um, excuse me, what is this?

Thomas: Oh, well, this is, um, a little something I wanted you to try on.

Hope: It is beautiful.

Thomas: Yeah, not as beautiful as it’ll look once it’s on you.

Hope: When did you find the time?

Thomas: I stayed up late a few extra nights. Wanted it to be a surprise.

Hope: Oh, well, aren’t I just the luckiest woman in the world to be dating such a sexy, talented artiste?

Thomas: What can I say? You’re my muse.

Hope: Hmm. I do humbly accept the title, but I, uh, your muse was kind of in the middle of something. So can it– can it wait?

Thomas: No.

Hope: No.

Thomas: No.

Hope: Oh, so it’s important.

Thomas: Very important.

Hope: Oh, gosh, when you say it like that, it sounds like your future depends on it.

Thomas: It kind of does.

Hope: Oh, well, then, in that case, um, I guess help me take my clothes off.

Thomas: Okay.

Bill: Look, uh, I tend to talk a lot, take up a room, but for you, I’m gonna work very hard on just shutting up. I will zip it, zipped. Seriously, I’ll just listen.

Luna: Thank you, bill, that’s– that’s really kind of you to offer, but, um, I probably shouldn’t get into it.

Bill: Fair enough.

Luna: Oh, my god. I’m sorry. Uh, where are my manners? Uh, did you want something to drink, or?

Bill: I really do. I don’t suppose you have scotch.

Luna: No, my mom doesn’t drink alcohol.

Bill: Yeah, right. I– I know. I mean, she won’t even have a glass of the finest bottle of wine. She’s just all about relaxing with her happy mints. What? What? Did I say something wrong?

Luna: No, I was just thinking about some other thing.

Bill: See, I told you I talk too much.

Luna: Can I ask you something, bill?

Bill: Shoot.

Luna: Has my mom ever talked to you about my father? If advanced lung cancer

Ridge: Hang on a second. Did I hear you right? Did you say that thomas might be good for hope?

Brooke: I might be changing my mind just a little bit.

Ridge: All right, that’s– that– that is fantastic, but why, why?

Ridge: Why would you see him differently now?

Brooke: Okay, just don’t read too much into it. But I have seen changes in my daughter. She seems very light and joyful and, uh, a lot of trust and confidence, and I do believe that one of the reasons is because of thomas.

[ Hope clears throat ]

Thomas: Wow.

Hope: It’s, uh… thomas, it’s stunning.

Thomas: It’s not the dress. It’s you. You are on my mind every moment I put pen to paper.

Hope: Hmm. Well, it is perfect, and there is nothing that I would change about it.

Thomas: That’s high praise.

Hope: Well, it feels spectacular on, and it hits– hmm… it hits all the right places.

Thomas: Well, it sure does.

Hope: All right, this was fun while it lasted, uh, but I know it’s probably already spoken for, so I should–

Thomas: Uh, no, no, I want you to keep it on.

Hope: What are you saying, that I can have it?

Thomas: You can have anything you want. I would give you the world.

Hope: You already have.

Thomas: No, no, don’T.

Hope: No?

Thomas: No– no I have, uh, I have something planned, and I think you should wear it.

Hope: Oh, oh. Oh, there are plans?

Thomas: There are. We’re going somewhere. It’s not too far, so don’t worry. Come on, let’s go.

Hope: What, right now?

Thomas: Yes, right now. Come on.

Hope: Okay.

Finn: Luna’s upset she can’t speak with her dad?

Poppy: Yeah, I’ve been giving her the run-around since she was born, but… she’s finally fed up with me.

Finn: Do you, um, do you know who luna’s father is? Like, would you– would you consider opening up to her?

Poppy: It seems like more and more like I have no choice.

Finn: Well, that’s– that’s your call, but what I don’t understand is what do I have to do with this?

Luna: Well, my mom’s told you that I don’t know who my father is.

Bill: It’s come up a few times.

Luna: Well, has she ever mentioned anything or any ideas on who it could be?

Bill: We discussed it, and for a while I thought, maybe hoped, that it could be me. Schwarzkopf

Finn: The reason you’re here to see me is about luna’s father?

Poppy: Yes. I need to talk to you about that.

Bill: Crazy, huh?

Luna: Um, well, actually, rj thought the same thing when i first told him how you and my mom met, you know, all those years ago, and the timeline matches up.

Bill: It does. That’s why I had to ask poppy if I could be your father.

Luna: And let me guess, she said no.

Bill: She said it wasn’t me.

Luna: I mean, I’m not surprised. Anytime I mention my father or ask her if maybe it could be someone from her past that I’ve met before, she always just shuts down and says that she’s not sure.

Bill: Did you ever think she has a good reason for keeping it from you?

Luna: I mean, what legitimate reason could there be? You know, the older I get, the more I wonder, and I don’t think it’s fair for her to keep this from me. You know, like it’s some deep, dark, dirty secret. You know, this is my life. It’s– it’s my identity. I mean, is it so wrong for me to wanna know who my father is?

Bill: No, no, not at all. You have every right to that information. And like I told poppy, any man would be proud to call you his daughter.

Ridge: So you’re seeing thomas differently. Thank you. That’s all I can ask.

Brooke: Do I believe that thomas adds to hope’s life? Yes, I do. She seems happier and she’s laughing more. What mother doesn’t want that for her daughter?

Ridge: Absolutely. And she must be thrilled, right?

Brooke: Yeah, you could say that.

Ridge: Look at us. We– we do things together all the time. It’s all we do, and now maybe the two of them, they could move this company forward, this family.

Brooke: Okay, okay. I think they should take it slow, but I am giving thomas the benefit of the doubt. But only hope knows what’s best for her.

Hope: Ah, ah. Wow. Um, is there a hope for the future event that I wasn’t aware we were planning?

Thomas: Well, this does have to do with hope for the future.

Hope: Uh-huh. And, uh, where’s the rest of the team, then? Where’s everyone?

Thomas: Right here.

Hope: So it’s just the two of us.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: Well then, I, uh, I call this meeting to order.

Thomas: Oh, okay. Well, actually, I have a little speech that I wanted to try out. Do you mind if I practice it on you?

Hope: Okay. I’d love to hear it.

Thomas: Okay, um… here it goes. The future is full of uncertainty, and how do you get past that uncertainty? We, take risks. It’s trial and error, and then you find successes. And we have found successes in our relationship, working for hope for the future, but also in our relationship as a couple, building a wonderful family. And through those risks, you trust your instincts. You take second chances, and you have given me more second chances than I probably deserve. But… you kept giving me more chances, and for that, I am so grateful. I will always be grateful to you for that. And speaking of second chances, um… you said you needed more time. But I think we’re ready. I think we’re very, very ready. It’s time for you to take this ring and put it on your finger. I don’t wanna wait anymore. So, hope… say you’ll make me the happiest man in the world. Say you’ll be my wife. Say you’ll marry me.

Ridge: You softened the shoulder. Looks nice.

Thomas: Yeah, I think it gives a more elegant flow down the back.

Ridge: It does. How’s it feel?

Petra: It was perfect before, but now it’s even more perfect.

Ridge: It’s almost impossible.

Thomas: Reminds me of my relationship with hope.

Ridge: All right, petra, I think that’s enough for today. Why don’t you tell harold there are no changes.

Petra: Always a pleasure, ridge, thomas.

Thomas: Thanks.

Ridge: Well done, son.

Thomas: Hey, you gave me the idea.

Ridge: No, not just your work. Your personal life.

Hope: I don’t understand what has gotten into me.

Thomas: Hm…

Hope: Why I can’t get enough of you.

[ Door opens ]

Brooke: You okay, honey? You seem a little flushed.

Hope: Uh, yes, you– you caught me. I happened to be thinking of thomas.

Liam: Well, the, uh, multi-platform ad structure’s kicking up revenue nicely.

Bill: You said it would.

Liam: Oh, it’s so nice to be right.

Bill: Well, that’s the kind of confidence that spencer needs at the top. I’m glad to see you stepping up, son.

Liam: Yeah, well, I’m happy to do it, especially since, uh, you’re focused on something else right now. Or should I say someone else?

Bill: All right, all right I– I will admit that poppy has been on my mind quite a bit lately.

Poppy: You’re not going into the office?

Luna: I rolled some calls earlier and now I’m prepping for a meeting. I thought you were going out.

Poppy: Are you trying to avoid me? Luna, I hate this tension between us. Okay, I mean, I feel awful about what’s happened because–

Luna: I don’t want to think about that night anymore, mom. Accidentally taking your mints, pretty much hallucinating, sleeping with zende. I just– I just want to focus on my work.

Poppy: Luna… it was a mistake. I’m so sorry. Please… please would you forgive me?

Luna: I wish I could talk to my father about this.

Ridge: You and hope doing okay?

Thomas: Stronger every day.

Ridge: Makes me very happy.

Thomas: Last night was kind of a highlight.

Ridge: You did something special?

Thomas: Yeah, well, granddad and donna, they were watching the kids, so I decided to take advantage of the moment. Uh, we had some dinner and reminisced about the past. The way it all began.

Hope: Thomas actually ordered us a feast from il giardino. And he went out of his way to find a chianti from the year that douglas was born. And it was all to just recapture the romance and the magic that we felt in rome.

Brooke: OH.

Hope: He’s always doing thoughtful things like that. Going out of his way to make me feel special and loved.

Brooke: He certainly gives you a lot of attention.

Hope: Well, yeah, it feels good for a change. You know, being a priority in someone’s life and finally being the only woman.

Poppy: You want to talk to your father?

Luna: Yeah, I do.

Poppy: Luna.

Luna: I’m sorry, okay? I’m not trying to hurt you. I mean, I’ve always been able to come to you with all of my problems, but… I can’T. Not about this. Not– not about zende and the mix-up with the mints.

Poppy: Because I’m the cause of it.

Luna: I can’t even open up to rj or my friends at the office about it. Mom, it’S… it’s eating me up. Holding this inside, I just– I need to know who my father is.


Thomas: Do you ever have like 14 designs ruminating in your mind at once? It occupies a lot of space. Like, it’s really great, but it’s also stressful. I– I feel like that’s what last night was about. Like, I wanted to get away from the stress, take hope and get away from it all, like we did in italy. Like it was in rome, where all that magic came alive.

Ridge: Well, it sounds like last night was magical too.

Thomas: Yeah. Hope is like the best surprise I’ve ever gotten in my life.

Ridge: But it’s not a surprise. It didn’t come out of nowhere. You worked on who you are as a man, as a father, and hope sees that and she wants it in her life.

Thomas: Yeah, well, I want her in my life for sure, and I– I just can’t imagine a life without her, actually.

Brooke: Well, there is no question that thomas is completely devoted to you. And you love the way he loves you. But how do you feel about him, honey? And I know you’re having fun, but is this really the guy that you want to spend your life with?

Hope: Thomas is the man who made me realize what I deserve. What it feels like to be loved completely. His passion for me is genuine, mom, and it is not obsessive anymore. It is healthy, and it is– it’s beautiful. And in turn, it makes me feel… beautiful.

Bill: Not everything comes down to magic, liam. It could just be plain old good timing. Two people who want the same thing at the same time in their life.

Liam: Yeah, except you yourself said that this feels different, that there is this special connection.

Bill: Yeah, because we go so far back.

Liam: Yeah, yeah, yeah, sure, because you go so far back. Or…

Bill: Oh, here we go.

Liam: Or… poppy’s in los angeles to give you something you have never had before.

Poppy: Okay, luna, I realize you’re feeling isolated.

Luna: No, I’ve always wondered who my father is. But you always shut me down. You haven’t told me anything, mom, and I– I’ve always put up with that in the past because I didn’t want to upset you or make you feel like I was disappointed in you.

Poppy: And now you are disappointed.

Luna: That’s not why I’m asking. Mom, I did something totally out of character. I mean, betraying the man that I love? That is so not me.

Poppy: It wasn’t you. It was the mints.

Luna: Okay, then what about the lying and– and keeping secrets? Everything that I’m doing now? I don’t know, mom, but maybe knowing who my father is might help. Why? Why won’t you tell me who he is? Known as a passionate artist.

Bill: All right, I may regret it, but I’ll bite. What do you think poppy’s giving me?

Liam: Aside from a chance to step away from the office so I can steer the ship for a minute?

Bill: Yeah, just don’t forget who daddy is.

Liam: What you’ve never had before, daddy, is someone in your life who met you as bill. Not billionaire business mogul, bill. Not dollar bill. Just bill.

Bill: You’re right. She does see me that way. And she gets me out of my head. You know, away from my considerable ego. And you know that’s not an easy thing to do. Ah, liam, it is just really great with poppy. We’re just– we’re not labeling it. It’s not, uh, what are we? Who are we? Where are we going? What is this? And at the same time, I feel like anything is possible. I mean, it’s really exciting. I have no idea what could happen next. You know, I texted poppy earlier about getting together, but I think I’m gonna pay her a visit right now.

Liam: Right now? You’re gonna do this?

Bill: Yeah, so when the check comes, make sure you leave a big fat tip there.

Liam: All right. Good luck.

Bill: I don’t need it. I mean, if we’re meant to be, I’m going to show up there at just the right time.

Luna: Tell me who he is, mom. Just give me a name and I’ll do the rest. You owe me this.

Poppy: Okay, luna, you know what? Your emotions are all stirred up. Would you just gave it some time? Focus on the good things, like– like how much rj cares about you. Then what happened that night–

Luna: I don’t want to talk about what happened that night, mom. If I had a dad, I’d talk to him about it, but he’s not in my life because you don’t want him to be.

Poppy: No, it’s not like that.

Luna: Then why won’t you answer my question?

Poppy: Because we’re just fine on our own. We don’t need anyone else. It’s always just been the two of us. And that’s our power. That’s always been enough.

Luna: Maybe it’s not enough anymore.

Thomas: Things are coming together for us, dad. I know hope loves me.

Ridge: I can see why she would.

Thomas: I just wish that brooke could believe that, too.

Hope: I am so happy, mom, and… can you please just be happy for me, too?

[ Knock on door ]

Luna: Bill?

Bill: Luna, hi. Yeah, I– I came by to surprise poppy.

Luna: Um, she’s not here. She just left.

Bill: Are you okay? Why– why are you upset? If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Ridge: Brooke isn’t standing between the two of you.

Thomas: She’s not supporting us either.

Ridge: Why do you say that? ‘Cause she wasn’t throwing confetti when she saw the ring on the necklace?

Thomas: Well, I wasn’t expecting anyone to throw confetti. Actually, we didn’t really want anyone to know about the proposal.

Ridge: Well, I’m glad you told me.

Thomas: I love her, dad. Her beauty, her goodness. It’s just– I believe that very, very, very soon, she’s gonna take that ring off her necklace and put it on her finger.

Brooke: Honey, you’re happy, and I love that. And that is all that I want for you.

Hope: Okay, but then why is it so hard for you to give thomas credit for that?

Brooke: I have my reservations.

Hope: Mom, I had my reservations, too. It took me a while to trust him and to open my heart up to him. And he’s given me his. Every bit of it. And that was even before the ring and the proposal. I mean, that was through his words and his actions, his devotion. He’s given me his whole heart. I mean, the kids feel it, too, mom. All of us. We feel so secure with him, with thomas. He makes me happy and I just– can you just give us a chance? Please, mom, can… do you think you could support my relationship with thomas?

Bill: You’re definitely upset.

Luna: It’s nothing.

Bill: It’s obviously something. Is it the forrester kid?

Luna: What?

Bill: Did he hurt you?

Luna: No, no, no, he would never.

Bill: Then what’s going on?

Luna: I’m fine.

Bill: Well, you don’t look fine. I, um, I mean, you look– you look beautiful. But you’re– you’re– you’re sad. Your mom wouldn’t want that. You said your mom was here. And she left. Did you have an argument? Um… I know all about parents and their kids butting heads. I mean, not so much mothers’ and daughters but… you know, I have three sons, right? Liam, wyatt, and– and will. And I probably drive them crazy on a– on a daily basis, but that’s only because I want the best for them. So I try to– I– I guide them and I– I try to teach them, and… some people might describe my personality as being somewhat intense and maybe a bit, uh, combustible, right? I’ll admit that I go too far sometimes. But I mean, you know, parents can do that because they just really love their kids, and sometimes we just can’t get out of our own way. Is that maybe what happened with you and your mom?

Luna: Um, yeah, we had an– an argument. And it’s been pretty tense between us lately. You know, it’s, uh, it’s really nice hearing you talk about your sons and how much you love them.

Bill: Luna, your mom loves you just as much.

Luna: Yeah, but you’re a dad. It’s different.

Bill: Is it?

Luna: Maybe. I don’t know. I mean, I’ve– I’ve never had one.

Bill: Yeah.

Luna: I mean, I’m not trying to say that dads are better. You know, like dads over moms. That’s not the point I’m trying to make. I mean, it’s the love that matters and being there for your kid. My mom’s always been there for me, but, you know, there’s like a part of me that’s missing and… she doesn’t understand that. Or, I don’t know, she doesn’t want to understand it. Because… every time I bring it up, she just… god, I just can’t let it go anymore. I need to know. I need to know who my father is.

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: Finn, what is it?

Finn: I can’t stop seeing her.

Steffy: Who?

Finn: Sheila.

Bill: Thank you.

Liam: Ah, thank you. What are you in the mood for?

Bill: I don’t know. Pizza, pasta. You buying?

Liam: Well, technically, if I’m buying, you’re buying, so yeah, I’m buying.

Bill: Good boy. Well, this I know for sure. It’s going to be a lot more enjoyable eating here now that sheila is permanently out of commission. And out of our lives.

Thomas: I hope you saved some room, because I whipped up something special.

Hope: Oh, well, your whipping-up skills have certainly been impressive thus far. I mean, you sure know how to order well.

Thomas: No, no, no. This time I actually made it myself. I want you to guess.

Hope: Um… brownies.

Thomas: Brown– brownies. You thought that I– special date night, I made brownies?

Hope: Douglas says that he loves making brownies with you, and it’s not exactly like you have all the free time in the world to study puff pastry.

Thomas: Okay, you do make a point, but this is something a little different. Okay, do you remember that little cafe off of imperiali? We had coffee, and…

Hope: You made panna cotta.

Thomas: I made panna cotta. It’s actually not that hard after the 11th try. Let me know what you think.

Hope: Gladly. Thomas, thank you. All of this has been so sweet. The wine, the music, the food.

Thomas: Look, you love italy, right? And italian food? So do I. And it also reminds me of that wonderful time that we’ll never forget.

Hope: I’ll never forget it either.

Liam: You– listen, you get no argument from me. Sheila’s death was…

Bill: A long time coming. And now that it has, it’ll all be a lot easier.

Liam: Well, not all. I mean, steffy I’m not so sure about yet.

Bill: How’s she doing?

Liam: As you’d expect. On the one hand, she’s relieved not to be living under threat of sheila for the rest of her life. On the other hand, she’s the one who eliminated that threat herself.

Bill: And we’re all grateful for that.

Liam: Yeah, you just imagine what she’s going through, right? ‘Cause steffy’s not a violent person. So, for her to pick up a knife and plunge it into sheila as she was lunging at her…

Bill: Well, it sounds like it was her only option and she was totally justified in doing it.

Lima: Absolutely, it was. 100%. It’s just that from steffy’s point of view, she has to live with this for the rest of her life, having killed somebody, self-defense or not.

Steffy: You can’t stop seeing sheila. What do you mean?

Finn: I– I– I keep seeing flashes of her just– just lying on the floor. And look, I know that it’s not real, but it seems– it seems real.

Steffy: It’s okay, it’s okay. Everything’s all right. Okay, come here. It’s gonna be okay. It’s gonna be okay. The power of a skin filler

Hope: Let me do the dishes.

Thomas: No! Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope. That’s not how this works. I don’t invite a wonderful, beautiful, sexy woman over to my mojo dojo casa house and then cook her a wonderful meal and force her to do the dishes. That’s not what happens.

Hope: Well, I volunteered. But, I mean, if you want to do things your way…

Thomas: My way? If we were doing things my way, we wouldn’t be talking about dishes.

[ Both chuckling ] Oh, I love the way you smile. I love the way you make me smile. I just, um, I guess I’m feeling a little guilty right now.

Hope: For what?

Thomas: Steffy. Everything she’s going through, I just wish I could be there to help her.

Hope: You are helping her, thomas. You’ve been such a supporter, loving her and caring for her the way a big brother should.

Thomas: I don’t know. I mean, look, she went through something terrible. She had sheila break into her home. She was just trying to have a night alone, and then she… had to kill someone. That’S…

Hope: Look, as strong as steffy is, taking a life, even if it is justified, that is still a horrifying thing.

Thomas: Yes, and she’s traumatized right now and she deserves to have someone there to help her. I just wish finn could put his stuff aside.

Hope: Finn is struggling too.

Thomas: I know finn’s struggling. I just, I think he can compartmentalize a little bit and help her, and… you know what? We’re not supposed to be talking about them. This night is about us.

Hope: It is. I mean, you brought italy all the way over here to us.

Thomas: Yeah. It’s not the same as being there, though, is it?

Hope: You came pretty close. But you do have a point. There is only one roma.

Thomas: That’s right. The one that we shared together.

Hope: I wanna go back.

Thomas: We should.

Hope: When?

Thomas: There’s nothing stopping us. Let’s go.

Hope: What exactly are you saying?

Bill: You have gotta be kidding me.

Liam: Not kidding you. Steffy’s the one who told me.

Bill: Her husband, the man who supposedly loves and cares about her, walks out on steffy when she needs him most?

Liam: Which, as you can imagine, upsets steffy just a little bit.

Bill: Upset? She should be furious. This guy abandons her at a time like this?

Liam: It’s not that he’s not loyal to steffy. Because he understands that she never would’ve picked up that knife. She never would’ve done what she did if there was any other option. What he’s all messed up about is that it was his wife who killed his birth mother.

Bill: His birth mother was a psycho who was in and out of prison for years. And now she’s dead and he’s developed some kind of bizarre mommy’s boy connection to her?

Liam: Oh, no, but you see, according to finn, it’s “complicated.”

Bill: It’s just nuts. I hope you told him that. You said you went to see him.

Lima: Oh, yeah, well, when i found out that he walked out on steffy, yeah, I did go see him.

Bill: Gave him a piece of your mind.

Liam: I didn’t mince words. Not that the guy gives a damn what I think.

Bill: So, he just got defensive?

Liam: He got defensive because he just thinks I’m– I’m, like, waiting in the wings to pick up all the pieces when, you know, this doesn’t work out with him and steffy.

Bill: Well, is that what you’re doing, liam?

Liam: Well, it is like you said. At this moment, finn’s focus should be on steffy and his family and being exactly the man that steffy needs him to be. And… if he can’t do that, it’s like I told steffy. I can.

Steffy: Finn, this is a really traumatic time. It’s not gonna be easy, but we’re gonna get through it, okay? So tell me, what’s– what’s going on with you?

Finn: I just, um, oh, when I– when I got the fire going, when you went to change and I moved the gate, and– I don’t know, I– I felt, like, this presence. But then I– I turned back and it was nothing. But then I– I felt it again. But only this time, I saw it. It was– it was my mom. She was laying there bloody. And as soon as I saw it, it disappeared. And I don’t know if it was just, like, what I imagined she looked like, but then you came back and we were on the couch and I saw it again. Only this time, she called out my name. And as soon as I saw it, it was just like a flash and it was gone. It was just– it was just like my dream. Only this time I was awake, right here, like, right on the floor. I don’t– what’s happening to me? If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Hope: Oh, you wanna whisk me away to rome?

Thomas: I would like nothing better.

Hope: Me too.

Thomas: Really?

Hope: Really. I miss it. You know, I miss the people and the places. The history. Ugh, the food. And as delicious as this meal was… I don’t know, there was still that amazing meal that we had at our favorite restaurant down by the spanish steps. Remember?

Thomas: How could I forget? How could I forget anything we shared in rome? This is where it happens, hope. Your vision brought to life.

Hope: This dream wouldn’t be a reality if it wasn’t for you.

Hope: Rome is where all of this started for us.

Thomas: The love, the romance, the beauty. Rome will always be with us.

Bill: I’m impressed, son.

Liam: With what?

Bill: With steffy, that she can always count on you.

Liam: Oh. Well, she can always count on me. That’s not just words.

Bill: I know. Just like I also know that you will always love her.

Liam: Well, we do share a beautiful daughter together.

Bill: Yes, you do, but this isn’t just about kelly. Your feelings for steffy will never go away.

Liam: No, they won’T. She’s a part of me. Always will be.

Stefy: Finn, I know this isn’t easy to hear, but… sheila is gone.

Finn: No, I– I know. It’s just… I think my mind is just playing tricks.

Steffy: It’s just gonna take some time to process. Make sense of it all.

Finn: Yeah.

[ Phone ringing ]

Steffy: Hold on. It’s liam. I don’t have to take this.

Finn: Answer it, ’cause it might be about kelly.

Steffy: Hey, liam. Is kelly okay?

Liam: No, no, kelly’s fine.

Steffy: Okay, thank god.

Liam: Everything all right?

Steffy: It will be.

Liam: Are you, uh– are you alone?

Steffy: No, I’m with finn right now. It’s a bad time. Let’s talk later.

Liam: Okay, all right, but–

Bill: Steffy okay?

Liam: I hope so.

Bill: Couldn’t tell?

Liam: I– no, but I’ve got a bad feeling it’s got something to do with finn.

Steffy: I feel awful that you’re going through this.

Finn: I mean, look, so are you.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: I mean, everything that’s happened.

Steffy: We make quite the pair, huh?

[ Finn chuckles ] And no matter how difficult this is, and yes, we are both having different reactions to this, we are gonna get through it. We’re gonna overcome this. Tell me you understand that, finn. Bipolar 1, I got help to push back.

Hope: I agree that the romance and the spirit of rome just never left us. And I don’t ever wanna lose sight of that.

Thomas: We won’T. I mean, you know, there’s a place that I remember above all else, a place that has so much history, especially for us.

Hope: Could it be… colosseum? Where I finally gave in and kissed you?

Thomas: Mm-hmm. That’s where our future began. A future that still awaits us.

Bill: Well, well, well. The good doctor finally finds his way back home.

Liam: It’s about time.

Bill: Considering the hell that steffy’s been through, he should be there for her.

Liam: Yeah, well, he will if he gets his head on straight. The woman’s dead. He needs to let her be dead. Not just for his sake, but for steffy’S.

Steffy: And you have a beautiful mind. You’re smart and you’re analytical. It’s one of the many reasons I fell in love with you. Okay, so why don’t we just talk about this as facts, all right? Sheila died. She died here, in our home. And now you’re getting these, like, flashes. And you weren’t there when it happened, but these flashes are taking you there, like… I’m just– I’m trying to make sense of this all. I’m trying to help. I really am.

Finn: Yeah, yeah.

Steffy: Well, she’s been taken to the morgue.

Finn: Hey. I appreciate what you’re doing. You’re so sweet. I mean, look, I agree, but I– you know, I know all this. It’s not like I’m confused or not believing what happened. The fact of the matter is, I’m having these flashes of sheila lying on the floor, and I just… I don’t know what’s going on with me. I mean, it’s just– I know it sounds crazy, but maybe I am going crazy.

Steffy: Finn, you’re under a lot of stress right now. Sheila’s death has taken a toll, and your mind’s just trying to catch up with you.

Finn: You’re the best. I’m sorry. I just– the last thing you need right now is me like this. I’m your husband. I should be your rock, but instead you’re… being that for me.

Steffy: It’s okay. It’s what I signed up for. Don’t sell yourself short. Having you here is just as important to me. I don’t wanna go through this alone. And I know you don’t want that either. We will overcome this, okay? We will. As long as we’re together. We’ll get through it.

Finn: That’s right.

[ Dramatic music ]

Finn: Doesn’t feel real yet. Does it to you?

Steffy: Knowing sheila’s gone? No. Hasn’t truly sunk in yet. I keep double-checking locks. Looking over my shoulder, seeing if she might pop up and do something. But she won’T. Never again. Sheila’s out of our lives for good.

[ Brooke moaning ]

Ridge: Wow. What was that for?

Brooke: Just wanted to thank you. Dinner was fabulous.

Ridge: Uh-huh. You know I didn’t cook it, right?

Brooke: I know, but you made the reservations, so that warrants a kiss.

Ridge: See, now I’m even more upset I’ve got to pick up those papers, but I need them. I’ve got this meeting tomorrow morning.

Brooke: All righty. I’ll just catch up with my email.

Ridge: You know, I’m surprised there’s no one here. I thought thomas would be burning the midnight oil.

Brooke: I thought he’d be here too. He’s so committed to hope’s line.

Ridge: Committed to hope’s line and committed to hope. Thomas and hope love each other.

Hope: Well, if his homework’s all done. Yeah. Of course. Of course you can let him play. All right. I will pick them up first thing in the morning. Thank you so much, donna. Bye.

Thomas: Let me guess. Douglas is begging for video game time.

Hope: Oh, yes. But he does have straight a’s, so…

Thomas: Let the boy play.

Hope: I should give donna a call back and let her know about the one hour.

Thomas: Okay, but we only have, like– we’ve been trying to make this work for a while and we only have one night. Do you want to spend it making calls to donna?

Hope: Well, when you put it like that.

Thomas: You have any ideas for activities?

Hope: I’m sure whatever we come up with will be worthwhile.

Ridge: You’re gonna have to work on that.

Brooke: What?

Ridge: That. That look you get on your face every time we talk about hope and thomas being a couple.

Brooke: This just isn’t easy for me.

Ridge: It wasn’t easy for anybody, but it’s done. They’re together, and… I don’t know. I think there’s something really beautiful about that. Magical, even.

Thomas: You okay?

Hope: Yeah.

Thomas: You seem… worried about douglas?

Hope: Uh, no, actually. I know he’s having a blast over at eric’S.

Thomas: Ah, so that means you’re still worried about steffy and finn.

Hope: It’s horrible, what they’re going through. I mean, to think that sheila’s death is now putting a strain on their marriage?

Thomas: Keep showing the kind of person you are. You genuinely care. You’re always empathizing. Especially in this situation. I mean, it’s not like you and steffy are exactly best friends.

Hope: All right, well, that might be true. I don’t want her going through anything like this.

Thomas: I know. That’s what makes you such a wonderful person. However, for tonight, I’d rather focus just on the two of us.

Hope: I do like the sound of that.

Thomas: Oh.

Hope: Will you help me forget?

Thomas: Of course.

Hope: So, checkers?

Thomas: Sure. Yeah.

Hope: Yeah?

Thomas: We can play. Or chess. Whatever.

Hope: Just–

Thomas: Whatever works.

Hope: Yeah?

Thomas: Yeah.

Finn: I wish I could find relief in that. Knowing that the threat’s over. Look, and I understand that it’s a good thing to not have to stress anymore. Wonder if sheila is going to crack and do something. It’s just… it’s just the way that it went down.

Steffy: It was never if she was going to crack. It was when. And she did when she showed up here. When she broke into our home and tried to attack me. Sheila intended on hurting me. I don’t know how, but I know that she had some kind of plan figured out. And that night, it was either her or me.

Finn: I get that.

Steffy: Well, this isn’t easy for both of us. Despite how freaked out we both are, despite how difficult this is, we need to figure out a way to heal. For the sake of our marriage. I want to be close to you again. In every way.

Finn: I want that, too.

Steffy: Yeah. There it is…

Ridge: At the end of the day, what we really want is for our kids to be happy, right?

Brooke: Yes, of course.

Ridge: And that’s how I know that you’re going to come around.

Brooke: To the idea of hope and thomas in a relationship.

Ridge: The same way that my mom came around to it. Look at hope. She’s so happy. We haven’t seen her this happy in a long time. And I think it’s because she’s with thomas. The two of them, they bring out the best in each other. I can see it. You can see it. You can’t see it, right?

Brooke: Okay, okay, yeah. I won’t deny that. But all happiness aside, I still am very worried because of what’s happened before and the lengths that thomas would go to.

Ridge: That’s the past.

Brooke: The past matters.

Ridge: The past matters, but so does the future. And the two of them, they could have a wonderful future together. Maybe the next great logan-forrester couple. Hm?

[ Thomas sighing ]

Hope: Um, sir, you have, uh, really outdone yourself this time.

Thomas: Oh, well, thank you. I try very, very hard. Did you know that this bottle of chianti is actually from the year that douglas was born?

Hope: Yeah. And was it a particularly good year for the grapes?

Thomas: Oh, well, you should know that this vintage, specifically, actually carries notes of blackberry and plum. And on the nose, you might have hints of– I don’t know what I’m talking about, but I thought you might think it was cute.

Hope: I– I definitely think it’s cute.

Thomas: Good, good, okay. Well, either way, what I do know about this wine is that it pairs very well with the special from il giardino.

Hope: Is that what I smell coming from the kitchen?

Thomas: That is, and I thought we could start with a little bruschetta.

Hope: Oh, well, don’t mind if I do.

Thomas: No worries. Um, aurora, could you play my italian playlist?

[ Classical music playing ]

Hope: Italian music? Am I, uh, sensing a theme here tonight?

Thomas: A little bit. Salute.

Hope: Salute.

Steffy: Oh, I miss this. Our connection. We can’t let what happened overshadow our love for each other.

Finn: We won’t want it to, but–

Steffy: No, we won’T. We won’t let it. Baby steps. We just need to try to get back to us. The two of us. Tell you what. Why don’t I get some clothes on and we could finish the bottle of wine, you get the fire going, and we can hang out? It just feels so good being in your arms.

Finn: We are better together.

Steffy: We are.

Finn: Thank you.

Steffy: I love you.

Finn: Baby steps.

[ Creaking ] Schwarzkopf

Hope: Why is this so good?

Thomas: You know, I don’t know. Like, your dad, for some reason, he thinks that pizza is their thing, but for me, it’s the parpadella.

Hope: It’s the parpadella.

Thomas: It’s the parpadella.

Hope: Okay, so, what brought upon this theme for tonight? Anything in particular?

Thomas: I don’t know. History, I guess. I’ve been thinking about our history, everything we’ve been through, and all the places we’ve been, and how we’ve gotten to where we are right now. And one place, above all, stands above the rest. Roma.

Brooke: So, I’m just wondering, how did you get so confident in them, this idea of hope and thomas’ future?

Ridge: Well, it’s the kind of guy I am. I pay attention. You’ll get there.

Brooke: But lately, you’ve been worried about steffy’s future. And me, too. It’s horrible what she had to go through with sheila.

Ridge: She’s struggling. She’s gotta be okay, but she killed somebody. In self-defense, but… she killed someone.

Brooke: She’s gonna be okay. She’s a brave, courageous woman and she will get through this.

Ridge: I know. I’m not worried about her. I’m worried about finn.

Steffy: Honestly, I don’t even know if I need the wine. Just being with you, touching you, knowing that we’re together, that’s all I really need.

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Thomas: I’ll never forget what we shared in rome.

Hope: Me neither. I mean, that trip changed everything.

Thomas: It’s just so beautiful. The landscape, the architecture, you. This is a place so full of history. I feel like actually you and I made some history today. So grateful for the time we had there and the impact it had.

Hope: It will always be our place. To roma.

Thomas: To roma.

Brooke: I can see how worried you are about steffy and finn.

Ridge: Of course I’m worried because I don’t know what finn’s doing. He’s got these misplaced feelings about his mother. He should be worried about his wife right now. He should be worried about his kids. He should be a husband and a father. Instead, he’s got this fantasy about who sheila could have been to him. Her getting killed is the best thing that could have happened to him because now, he doesn’t have to find a place for her in his life. She’s dead. It’s over. It’s done.

Finn: It feels good to be home with you in my arms.

Steffy: This is where you belong.

Finn: You’re right. Tonight, it’s about moving forward. And new beginnings. Because we don’t have any reason to look over our shoulder any longer. No one, nothing threatening our happiness or our family. I’m sorry. I’m sorry I got caught up with what happened to sheila and not prioritizing you and what you went through. I should have been more reassuring and supportive right from when I found out.

Steffy: Finn, it’s okay. I understand.

Finn: Well, I want to move on from it. Concentrate on us, on our family, and this beautiful life we have together. I just… love you so much, steffy. Never forget it, okay?

Steffy: No, I won’T. I know how you feel. You show me every single day. Look, I know we’re traumatized by what happened, but it is a trauma that we’re going to heal from. We will. The two of us, we can do it. Sheila’s no longer a threat to us. We don’t have to think about her. We don’t have to talk about her anymore. And honestly, I’d rather not talk about her tonight, because I just want this. I want you, I want to be wrapped up in your arms. Come here. I miss this. I love you.

[ Sheila gasping ]

[ Sheila coughing ]

Sheila: Finn.

Steffy: Whoa, finn. What’s wrong? Tell me.

[ Upbeat music ]

Steffy: Hey, finn, it’s okay. It’s okay. You had a dream. You had a really bad dream.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: You’re safe now, okay? You’re safe.

Finn: It’s just– I don’t– I… I just– I saw her die, steffy, and it– it– it felt very, very real. Um, just the– the– the blood and the– the begging and I just– I can’t stop hearing sheila beg for my help.

Thomas: Hey, where’d you go?

Hope: Uh, trying to work, but honestly, I just– I just can’t shake this feeling. I’m– I’m really worried about steffy and finn’s marriage.

Rj: So, are you ready for this? First night swim?

Luna: Uh, yeah.

Rj: Good, good, ’cause, you know, the sharks, they’re usually more calm after dark, so… I’m joking. I’m joking. I’m trying to make you laugh. I’m kidding.

Luna: Okay, well, shark attack jokes aren’t exactly the best way to do that. But I love that about you.

Rj: What, all my poorly timed jokes?

Luna: No, um, you’re always looking out for me. You know, always trying to make me laugh and stay positive. I really need that. More than you know. I’m just, um… I’m really lucky to have you.

Rj: Hey, I’m the one that’s lucky to have you. You’re– you’re this beautiful, honest, perfect woman.

Luna: Believe me, I feel the same way about you. I don’t ever want to lose you. Okay, so are we doing this? I mean, are you sure there’s no sharks out there?

Rj: No. I mean, well, there’s gonna be me. I mean, I’m gonna be circling you, making sure that you’re okay, of course. No, I think this will be good, you know? Just try to relax and clear your mind, and you know, maybe it’ll put things in perspective. Maybe you’ll realize things aren’t as bad as you think they are.

Carter: She’s impressive. I’m sorry.

Zende: Damn it, carter.

Carter: I didn’t mean to startle you, man. I’m sorry.

Zende: Yeah, all right. It’s okay. I was just…

Carter: Looking over the interns.

Zende: Yeah.

Carter: Luna.

Zende: Mm-hmm.

Carter: Yeah, I get it.

Zende: You do?

Carter: Yeah, and she’s talented. She’s lovely. She’s made a big impact here at forrester. Luna’s very special.

Rj: Wait ’til you see the moon reflecting off the water when you’re in it. It’s just… you’ll see. You’ll see. And hey, you know I don’t want to pry, but I’m always here to help, whatever you need.

Luna: It’s is one of the countless reasons why I love you.

Rj: All right, let’s do this.

Luna: Okay.

Rj: Come on, let’s go.

[ Luna groaning ]

Steffy: It kills me to see you in so much pain. You know, I didn’t– I didn’t want any of this, but it all happened so fast.

Finn: Hey, I know. I know, okay, and… and it’s just, you know, I can’t deny how I’m feeling, though. You know, and after– after everything that she’s done to us, I mean, none of this makes sense. That I feel this connection to sheila. God, and I’ve… if I’m feeling this way, I mean, I can’t imagine how you’re feeling. I’m worried about you. And to do… you know what? And I know you had to defend yourself and you had no choice, but… just, I can’t imagine the toll this has taken on you. The right age for

Carter: I have to say, luna is definitely the standout. If she continues to work hard here. She’ll have a very bright future.

Zende: From intern to fashion mogul.

Carter: Hey, it worked for you, didn’t it?

Zende: Yeah.

Carter: Remember when you were here interning, running coffee and files up and down these halls?

Zende: Good times.

Carter: For you, maybe. You can’t make a cup of coffee to save your life.

Zende: Hey, I was a bit distracted, okay?

Carter: How could you not be? Surrounded by all this creativity. You were born to design, zende. And you were impressive then, just like you are now.

Zende: Thanks, man.

Carter: It’s a gift. I’m good at seeing potential in people. And I have to say, luna is just as, if not more impressive than you were.

Zende: I am well aware of how special luna is.

Carter: And you’re not the only one. I don’t think anyone’s more impressed with luna than rj. Dude’s whole face lights up whenever she walks in the room.

Zende: Hm.

Rj: Okay, come on. Let’s just warm up quick now that we’re back in here. Here.

Luna: Thank you.

Rj: Of course. You got it. There you go. So, was it worth it? It was worth it, right?

Luna: Hmm, yeah. It was pretty incredible. Do you do that often? Go on night swims?

Rj: Yeah, when I can. I think it’s a, I don’t know, it’s a nice way to let the world slip away. You agree?

Luna: Uh, it was pretty scary, to be honest. I mean, it was so dark out, I couldn’t see anything.

Rj: At least you had me, though, right? I’ll always be here to take care of you. Make you secure and happy.

Thomas: I’m trying to stay strong for my sister. To stay positive. I just– I hate that she’s going through this.

Hope: Me too. At least there’s one good thing that came out of it. Sheila’s dead.

Steffy: I hated sheila. I hated her with every ounce of my being, and I just wanted her to leave us alone. And I can see that you’re suffering, but I don’t want this to come between us.

Finn: Me neither. Look, and I know your family thinks that you killed an animal, but–

Steffy: But she’s your birth mother.

Finn: I know, but as much as I’m struggling, I know you are too. And I can see it.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m dealing with my own demons. And what I did. I mean, I even told sheila that I– I wanted her dead. And I thought about it. A lot. I actually just never thought I… I never wanted to take a life. I never…

[ Steffy sobs ] God.

Zende: You know, rj isn’t the only one who thinks so highly of luna. She’s awesome. She’s so smart and talented and obviously very beautiful.

Carter: You two have gotten pretty close, huh?

Zende: Why do you say that?

Carter: It’s the way you’re going on about her.

Zende: Man, I’m just agreeing with you. And rj. Pretty much everyone who’s ever met her.

Carter: Okay, well, with the way things are going, I’m pretty sure you’ll work with her more often. Get to know her even better.

Zende: I’d like that a lot.

Luna: Do you really mean it?

Rj: What?

Luna: When you say that you’ll always take care of me?

Rj: Of course. Absolutely. I mean, you changed my life. Really, you did. I just– I want to make sure that you always feel secure and loved.

Luna: I wish we were never apart.

Thomas: Look, I don’t care what finn’s feeling right now or what he’s mourning. Look, sheila has devastated our family and terrorized our families for years, right? Your mother, too. Sheila was evil. She deserved a lot worse than she got. And I don’t have the sympathy for finn that you have. Steffy is freaking out right now. And she needs her husband to be there. And for some reason, her husband is mourning the loss of the woman who tried to kill her.

Hope: Finn just needs more time.

Thomas: He doesn’t have any more time. I don’t care what he feels like he needs to get through or get over or whatever. Like, he needs to get over it now and be there for steffy.

Steffy: Now, I know you don’t want to hear this.

Finn: Well, yeah, I do.

Steffy: But if I open up to you, are you gonna just run out again?

Finn: No, I’m not gonna run out. Hey. Talk to me.

Steffy: It’s just when I think about sheila, everything that she’s done to us, my mother, how she’s tormented my family? I thought about it a lot. Like, what I would have to do to protect myself. What I would do to protect our children. And I knew exactly what to do. But when sheila lunged at me and I felt my knife go into her, I didn’t– I didn’t feel rage or relief. I felt anguish. And that haunts me. The way I look at– look at my hands. I look over there and all I see is just blood. Like, I took a life. Yes, it was self-defense, but I… I killed someone. And I don’t know if I’m– if I’m ever gonna feel normal again and that really worries me. Or if you’re ever gonna look at me the same way again. The company goes to the first born audrey. The model train set is entrusted to todd. Mr. Marbles will receive recurring deliveries for all of his needs in perpetuity, thanks to autoship from chewY. I always loved that old maN.

Zende: Hello, luna.

Luna: Hi.

Zende: You’re here.

Luna: It feels so good being in your arms.

Rj: I could do this all night. Actually, I was wondering if you’d like to stay over?

Luna: I was hoping you’d ask.

Rj: Yeah?

Rj: I love being with you. I really do feel like I get to just be myself around you. And– and you know, plus, you– you find all my corny jokes really sexy, so…

Luna: Um, no. I find them pretty corny. But I do think you’re sexy. I mean it though, rj. I never wanna be away from you. I mean, you’re so kind and sweet, caring. I’ve never met someone more honest and loyal.

Rj: I’ve never met anyone more honest and loyal than you.

Luna: I never thought that I’d meet someone like you. Someone so warm and genuine. Never doubt how much I love you.

Thomas: Now look, I don’t mean to be insensitive. But this is how I feel. Look, sheila was obsessed with my family. She shot both of our mothers and now she’s finally dead so we can all breathe.

Hope: You are not being insensitive. You’re being a protective brother. And that’s what I love about you. Look, I know this has been hard for all of us.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, it’s finally over. And I get that it is illogical and it may not make sense to us, but… the connection that finn feels to sheila is very real.

Thomas: What’s real is that finn has a family and a traumatized wife who needs him.

Hope: And finn needs steffy too right now. And that is what I am worried about. That all of this has compromised their ability to be there for one another. I mean, what if killing sheila has jeopardized steffy and finn’s marriage?

Finn: I hate that you’re suffering.

Steffy: I hate that you’re suffering too. What are you thinking?

Finn: I want to be there for you. I do. But, you know, hearing you talk about taking sheila’s life and you know, knowing that it happened here, in this– in this room, in our house, it’s just… I don’t know, it’s a lot. It’s a lot and it just makes– it makes– makes me feel like I could have another panic attack, like this house is haunted and it’s just– it’s– I hate feeling this way. Because I– I love you. Honey, I love you and the kids. You, you are my life. This house. This is– this is our house. And I hate feeling like I need to leave because of what happened here.

Steffy: No, I don’t– I don’t want you to leave either. I can’t even tell you how much I love you. I need you. I– I can’t even imagine going through this without you. I need my husband, finn. I need you. I need you.

Finn: Okay.

Interview with Denise Richards

TV Interview!


Denise Richards, Kym Johnson Herjavec and Melyssa Ford speak about "Hunting Housewives", which premieres 3/9/24 on Lifetime

Interview with Denise Richards, Kym Johnson Herjavec and Melyssa Ford of “Hunting Housewives” on Lifetime by Suzanne 3/5/24Denise Richards, Kym Johnson Herjavec and Melyssa Ford of "Hunting Housewives" 3/9/24 on Lifetime

This was a Lifetime Press Panel for this fun new Lifetime movie, “Hunting Housewives.” It’s a thriller with a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor. If you watch the “Real Housewives” and shows like that, then you’re no doubt familiar with Denise Richards and perhaps some of the other actors in the movie, and the type of women they portray here. It’s worth watching, and it sounds like there might be a sequel in the future. I loved Denise Richards in “The Bold and The Beautiful” and other shows. She does a good job here, even though she’s basically playing herself. At least, that’s how it seems. I was able to ask the very last question on the video. Enjoy this video. The movie airs tonight, March 9.

MORE INFO: Trailer  Official Site

Key art for the film "Hunting Housewives", which premieres 3/9/24 on Lifetime

In Hunting Housewives, four friends Karla Dodds (Denise Richards), Rebel Carron-Whitman (NeNe Leakes), Joli Symons (Kym Johnson Herjavec) and Sharell Bouvier (Melyssa Ford) head for a much-needed spa retreat weekend away from their husbands, children and busy schedules when suddenly they find themselves downed in a plane crash. With no knowledge of basic survival, the housewives must use their wits and whatever is in their designer bags to try to survive in the rugged wilds. When they realize they are not alone, even frenemies must align to outwit their hunters.

Hunting Housewives is produced by Brain Power Studio in association with Nicely Entertainment for Lifetime. Beth Stevenson, Nancy Yeaman, Stan Hum and Vanessa Shapiro executive produce. Paula Tiberius wrote the script and Marco Deufemia directs.

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: I am so sorry, finn. There’s just so much to process, you know, so much. But… I reacted. I mean, she came right at me. I did it to save myself.

Finn: I know, I know. Okay, and I just… I think my emotions need to catch up. I’m exhausted and this day has been endless.

Steffy: So, are you gonna sleep at the hospital again?

Finn: No. I wanna come home.

Steffy: Yeah.

Poppy: You two make such a great couple. Don’t you agree, zende?

Zende: They sure are something.

Rj: Sorry, I just missed you.

Luna: No, you have– you have nothing to be sorry about.

Rj: Is everything okay? You seem a little off.

Luna: I just realized I’m not good at this. I can’t do it.

Rj: What are you talking about? What do you mean you’re not good at this?

Poppy: Luna’s always been shy about expressing affection in public. But, um, sweetie, pda’s are unavoidable when a couple loves each other as much as you two do.

Rj: Yeah, and you know, the last thing I want you to be is uncomfortable. Do you want to go someplace more private? Maybe my place?

Luna: Uh, yeah, I’d love to.

Rj: Okay, I got a meeting in the cutting room, but I’ll meet you downstairs in ten.

Luna: Okay, I’ll be there.

Rj: Okay. See you.

Poppy: Bye. You were going to tell him, weren’t you?

Luna: I hate having this secret between us.

Poppy: Okay, but, luna, if you tell rj that you accidentally slept with zende, you will lose him.

Zende: She’s right, luna. You have to be very careful of what you stand to lose, or gain, if you decide to go down this road.

Hope: Ah, good, we’re alone.

Steffy: I had a cleaning crew specializes in, um…

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: I just wanna put this behind us. I really do. I want this house to feel like your home again.

Finn: And I want that, too. At bombas, we’re obsessed with socks.

Poppy: Aren’t you worried? I can’t think of anything else.

Zende: Isn’t that why you have your magic mints? Take the edge off?

Poppy: I am fully aware that I am the reason why luna is in this awful situation. I just wish I kept better track of my mints that evening.

Zende: Yeah, I wish you had, too. Did I want to be with luna? Yes, I don’t deny it, but not the way it happened.

Poppy: I am terrified that luna will tell rj about being with you and she will lose that happiness that she found. Forever.

Luna: I hope you know how much our relationship means to me, and I’d never knowingly do anything to jeopardize it.

Rj: Hey, I’m in this for the long haul. You know that.

Luna: I hope so.

Rj: Is everything alright? Hey, you know what? I’m sorry. We don’t have to talk about that if you don’t want to. You know me. I’m right here to help whenever you need me. But… I do have an idea for something that we can do together that might be the solution to all your problems.

Luna: Yeah? What’s that?

Rj: Night swim?

Thomas: Hey, when you saw steffy earlier, how’d she seem?

Hope: Well, you know your sister. She’s putting on a brave face. Obviously, she’s horrified that she took a life, even if it was in self-defense. And the fact that it is her husband’s birth mother just adds to the guilt.

Thomas: Yeah, sorry. I don’t– I don’t have a lot of patience with finn’s torment over sheila’s demise. I mean, has he forgotten that sheila shot him and his wife, my sister, and left them for dead? Or– or– or the fact that she broke into their house and could have killed his wife? I mean, steffy could be dead right now because of sheila.

Hope: Of course, finn understands that, thomas. But sheila was still his birth mother, I mean, like it or not, there is a connection there. One that finn doesn’t even understand. And you can’t just wish it away. Sheila’s dead because of steffy and that’s hard for him to absorb. So, I just– you know, I just told steffy to try to understand her husband’s feelings.

Steffy: Here you go.

Finn: Thank you.

Steffy: I’m really glad that you’re home. I’m glad that you want to be here despite everything that happened.

Finn: And everything that I love is in this house. You, the kids, my surfboard.

[ Finn sighs heavily ]

Steffy: You look tired.

Finn: Well, like I said, it’s been a long day.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Where are the kids?

Steffy: Kelly is with liam and hayes is with grandma li. It does give us a night to ourselves. It gives us a chance to reconnect. We need it.

Finn: I know. I’m here.

Zende: Can you bring in those swatches on your way into work tomorrow? Okay. All right, awesome. Thank you. There it is again. Don’t you have somewhere to be? I’m trying to work.

Poppy: Well, excuse me if I’m concerned about my daughter.

Zende: I am too, but there’s nothing that we can do at the moment. Except to keep encouraging her not to tell rj what happened with me by mistake. What? I care about luna and her happiness. I wish she had found it with me, but that’s not how things worked out. Rj is the lucky winner.

Poppy: You talk a good game, I’ll give you that. Not the reason I’m concerned.

Zende: Look, I am not plotting to come in between luna and rj, if that’s what you’re afraid of. However, if he’s stupid enough to lose her or to push her away, I will be there to pick up the pieces. Count on it.

Poppy: Easy there, tiger. Don’t get your hopes up. The only thing that can come between them is if luna tells rj about what happened with you. And I’m going to make sure that she doesn’T. And not to protect herself, but to protect you and your family. Especially your relationship with rj.

Rj: Do you trust me?

Luna: You know I do.

Rj: Well then I’m telling you a night swim is exactly what you need.

Luna: I mean, I’ve never been in the ocean after dark.

Rj: It– it’s a first. That’s even better. Come on!

Luna: I don’t know, rj.

Rj: Listen, I’ll be right there with you. The whole time. Hm? It’ll be fun. Maybe, you know, it’ll take your mind off of whatever’s been bothering you.

Luna: I love how you’re always looking out for me.

Rj: Well, you know, it’s– it’s my job, so… no, come on, what do you say? A night swim always clears my mind. Maybe it’ll do the same for you. And you left your swimsuit here. Wait, do you hear that? I– it’s the ocean. It’s the ocean. It’s calling your name.

Luna: Okay, fine, let’s do it.

Rj: Yes, let’s do it. Come on.

Thomas: You and steffy didn’t get into a fight or anything, did you?

Hope: No. But she wasn’t exactly receptive to me either, which is fine. She’s going through a lot right now, but so is finn. And that was the only point I was trying to make.

Thomas: I’m guessing steffy isn’t exactly receptive of finn’s grief over sheila.

Hope: No. But she also just can’t brush it under the rug and dismiss it. I mean, his feelings are valid. Sheila gave birth to him.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: Steffy killed her, and so, obviously, there is going to be a conflict there. I just hope that they can treat it with understanding and compassion.

Thomas: Did you say that to steffy?

Hope: I tried. I’m not sure my delivery was the greatest. Um, and quite frankly, I don’t think steffy even really wanted to hear it coming from me. But, I don’t know, I just– sheila’s death, I really do worry, might create some problems in their marriage.

Steffy: You have no idea how much I needed this.

Finn: I think I have an idea.

Steffy: I love you so much. Never forget that.

Finn: No, I never do. I love you too. More than– more than anything, sorry.

Steffy: No, no, no, don’t be. You’re exhausted. So, how about this? Why don’t you just rest up a bit? I’ll hop in the shower and wake you up with a kiss when I’m back, okay?

Finn: I love the sound of that. Hm.

[ Finn sobbing ] (Vo) for over 50 years

[ Zende sighing ]

Rj: Wow. Wow. God, you look amazing.

Luna: You make me feel amazing.

Rj: Come on, you don’t need me for that. You know how special you are. You are beautiful. Inside and out. And you are sweet and you are funny. You’re one of the most honest people I’ve ever met.

Luna: I don’t ever want to do anything to disappoint you. Or not see love in your eyes whenever you look at me.

Rj: It’ll never happen.

Luna: No, I mean it, rj. I mean, you mean everything to me. I can’t imagine my life without you.

Rj: Don’t even think about it. I’m not going anywhere.

Luna: You know, I’m gonna hold you to that.

Rj: Okay.

Luna: In fact, I think I’m just gonna hold you.

Hope: Steffy and finn love each other. They have a wonderful marriage, a beautiful family. And for sheila to cause problems for them, even beyond the grave, is unacceptable. They can’t let her win. I mean, now’s the time that they have to really become devoted to each other. Listen to each other. Or try to act with– with compassion and understanding. And… I just– I don’t know, that’s– that is what I was trying to tell steffy, but she was not ready to hear it. Or at least she did not want to hear it from me.

Thomas: I love how much you care. It shows the kind of kind and compassionate person you are. However, I don’t really wanna spend the rest of the day talking about steffy and finn if we don’t have to. Love always finds a way, right? And they love each other. So, it’s gonna be okay. I mean, look at us. Found a way somehow for us and I will always love you.

Sheila: I love you so much, baby. My son.

[ Echoing ] Son.

Steffy: No. No. No.

[ Steffy and sheila grunting ]

Finn: NO.

Sheila: No, stop.

Finn: Stop, stop.

[ Sheila gasping ]

Finn: No, stop, stop. Stop. Stop, stop.

Sheila: Finn, help me.

Finn: Stop, stop, stop. Stop. Stop. Stop.

Steffy: Finn? Finn, what– what happened? Baby, what happened?

Finn: She was just here– she was– sheila and I saw the– uh, I saw everything. I just saw the knife and the blood. And I saw the– the… I saw everything that happened and– and– and she was– my name and she was– she was– she was– she got– I couldn’t help her.

Steffy: Baby, baby, hey.

Finn: I couldn’t help her I couldn’t save her and I… I just– I just, I…

Steffy: Baby, you were sleeping, okay? Hey, hey. Breathe. Breathe, okay? Breathe. I’m here. You fell asleep on the couch. You had a nightmare. You’re safe. You’re safe now. Oh, god, I hate you’re so tortured by this. But we’re gonna get through this, okay? You and me, like we get through everything. I love you, okay? It’s okay. It’s okay.

Luna really wants to be honest with RJ, but once again, Poppy and Zende urge her not to, or she’ll lose RJ. Zende makes a snide remark to Poppy about her mints, and they have a short discussion. He makes it clear that he’ll replace RJ in a heartbeat if he can, but she thinks that Luna and RJ are too much in love.

RJ and Luna go for a night swim at his place. Luna isn’t sure that she should, but he talks her into it.

Thomas asks Hope how Steffy seemed when she saw her earlier. Hope tells her that Sheila is horrified and feeling guilty. Thomas doesn’t feel much sympathy for Sheila, or Finn’s grief. Hope informs him that Finn knows that Steffy isn’t responsible, but he’s having a hard time dealing with everything. She tells him that she tried to get Steffy to understand Finn’s feelings.

Steffy: I came here to work. I don’t need you to lecture me marriage.

Hope: Look, I know you’re dealing with a lot.

Steffy: And it seems like you’re piling more on me.

Hope: I understand. It’s painful enough as it is already. It’s just, I– I see what finn is going through and I’m just urging you, steffy, to please don’t allow sheila’s death to come between you and finn.

Liam: Steffy needed you, you know. And you walked out on her.

Finn: I don’t owe you an explanation, liam.

Liam: Okay, you got one for steffy then? ‘Cause she has no idea what’s going on with you. In fact, nobody does. Lamenting sheila like she’s this significant part of your life? Like, what are you– you know what? It’s fine. It’s fine. Steffy’s gonna be fine because I’ll be there. I mean, she needs someone she can count on, finn. And if it’s not you, it’s me.

Luna: Oh, my god. What happened? What– what am I doing here?

Zende: That’s what I asked myself when you surprised me here last night.

Luna: I thought that I was with rj, zende. I saw his face. How could I make that up?

Zende: I can’t explain it, but… you do know that what happened between us, what we shared, it was consensual, right? I would never–

Luna: I know that. But it doesn’t change how I feel. The shock and– and the horror. I love rj so much and we have something so special. Or we did. But now? What have I done?

Poppy: So, this is where you’ve been hiding?

Luna: I’m working, mom. I’m busy.

Poppy: Too busy to answer my texts? I just wanna know that you’re okay, sweetheart.

Luna: I’m not. Not even close. Your mints turned my entire life upside down.

Poppy: Luna, I am so sorry.

Luna: Your apologies won’t fix anything, mom. I slept with zende thinking that he was rj. And now this secret is… it’s tearing me apart. I love rj. I mean, doesn’t he deserve to know the truth?

[ Knock on door ]

Rj: Hey, zende.

Zende: Bad time?

Rj: No, no, it’s fine. I just took a shower from a beach swim. It’s okay, come in. So, what’s up?

Zende: I thought we should talk.

Rj: About what? About work?

Zende: No, we can talk shop at the office. I came to see you here in private.

Rj: You want to talk to me in private? Why do you need to talk to me in private?

Zende: There are some things you need to hear.

Rj: What do I need to hear, zende?

Zende: I wanna make sure you understand how lucky you are to be dating luna.

Poppy: You can’t tell rj that you slept with zende.

Luna: Okay, so what am I supposed to do? What, I’m supposed to keep this secret locked up forever?

Poppy: Yes.

Luna: I don’t think I can do that. I don’t think I can keep what happened with zende from rj.

Finn: Do I have to remind you that it’s my wife that you are talking about?

Liam: No, I think I have to remind you it’s your wife I’m talking about. It’s like you’ve forgotten how lucky you are just to have her in your life.

Finn: I haven’t forgotten. I’ll never forget how blessed I am to have steffy in my life. And I don’t blame her for what happened. It’s complicated. But, frankly, it’s none of your damn business. You don’t know what I’m going through. Yes, we are all relieved that sheila is gone. But my birth mother is dead.

Steffy: Don’t act like you know more about this than I do. It happened to me.

Hope: I– all I’m trying to say is that I think it might be affecting finn a little more than maybe even you realize.

Steffy: You are overstepping right now.

Hope: Fine, fine, all right. Just trying to help, okay? I– I– I get that you might not understand what finn is going through. I just hope that you will try to respect it.

Steffy: I know finn is tormented by this. So am I. More than you could possibly imagine. Hey… it’s me! Your dry skin!

Rj: Yeah, you don’t have to tell me how amazing my girlfriend is. I– I know. She’s my girlfriend.

Zende: She’s a lot more than that, rj. She is smart and beautiful. Ambitious. Granddad thinks there’s a real future for her at forrester. And so do I. I know you like hanging out with her, spending time. Luna is special. I’m not sure you’re fully aware of that.

Rj: I’m completely aware of it. What I’m not sure is that you fully understand that we’re not just hanging out and having fun, zende. We’re in a committed relationship. And I– I don’t understand what it is that you’re saying or that you’re not saying, but luna and I are happy, okay? And you’re never going to be with her.

Poppy: Telling the truth can devastate rj.

Lun yeah,ut it’ the right thing do.

Poppy: Who benefits?No one if you’re questioning your relationship with rj.

Luna: No, I’m not. I love him.

Poppy: Then why hurt him by telling him something that you can’t change? For something that didn’t mean anything to you? Spare yourself this pain.

Luna: Mom, I’m not keeping this a secret to protect myself, mom. I mean, every single time I’m with rj, so good to me and I don’t wanna undermine rj and zende’s relationship. I mean, they’re– they’re like the next generation of forresters.

Finn: Steffy and I don’t need you or anyone telling us how to cope with this.

Liam: You’re not coping. You could cope at home. You’re bailing.

Finn: I told you, it is complicated.

Liam: Okay, then let me simplify it for you. Steffy shouldn’t be fighting through this all on her own.

Finn: And I shouldn’t be getting a warning from you. None of this is fair. My birth mother was stabbed to death in my home by my wife. I love steffy. I know sheila broke in, and steffy was defending herself, and I want to be there for her, but yes, I am struggling right now and I don’t need you to be putting me on blast for it.

Liam: Okay, I tried. Guess I can’t get through. One for the road. Don’t neglect steffy. Don’t take your marriage to her for granted like I did.

Finn: Because you’re waiting in the wings. Do you think that you’re being honorable? Giving me fair warning? Coming in here, interfering, acting like you know what steffy needs? What we need is privacy and some time to work this out. And we will. You got that, liam? Nothing and no one will come between steffy and me.

Hope: Steffy, I’m sorry. I am not trying to be insensitive. You acted out of self-defense. Everybody knows that, even finn.

Steffy: I still took a life. That’s the truth. Even though it was self-defense, even though I was trying to protect myself, it doesn’t change the fact that I watched a life leave someone’s body. That’s on me. I did that. And every time I close my eyes, that is all I see. Me killing her.

Is it menopause

or something else?

Hope: Steffy, I… I apologize. This wasn’t the time or place to talk about this. I was really not trying to upset you.

Steffy: Well, I appreciate your concern about finn and my marriage, but I don’t want to talk about this anymore.

Hope: I understand that I don’t know how you’re feeling, and how this is gonna impact the both of you. All I know is that I talked to finn and saw a man wrestling with himself. He’s confused. He’s hurting. And I just was trying to give you the heads up and let you know.

Steffy: We are grappling with a very difficult situation. It’s emotional. It is painful. But it’s not insurmountable. We have gotten through many storms together. We’re gonna get through this one. We’ll be stronger. I’m not gonna let this disrupt my life with finn.

Rj: Have you said what you need to say? Because I have to go to the office and do some work and say hi to my girlfriend. Okay?

Zende: I’d feel the same way if I were you.

Rj: Listen to me. I don’t want to argue with you. We used to be close, and we still can be. But you need to lay off and respect my relationship with luna.

Luna: The forresters are a wonderful family. And they all love each other. They do, but when there’s tension between them, I mean, it affects everything.

Poppy: That’s true of every family.

Luna: Yeah, well, the nozawas aren’t exactly running an international fashion house.

Poppy: You don’t wanna mess things up.

Luna: I already have.

Poppy: But telling rj the truth can make things so much worse.

Luna: I know. I know. You don’t want me to mess up my future with rj. And you don’t want me to mess up my job at forrester, but… that’s not why I’m not telling him the truth. I mean, I’m fully willing to face the consequences of my actions.

Poppy: You didn’t know what you were doing.

Luna: I didn’t have a choice then, but I do now. But, I don’t know, as… as much as I want to tell rj the truth, I don’t want to ruin his whole life and his family. I don’t want to be the reason why zende and rj can’t work together. And I won’t mess up eric’s collection. I mean, that’s just– that’s way too important. To eric, to his sons and his grandsons. And rj has worked so hard to get zende on board. And I know that they’re trying to rebuild their connection, and I just– I can’t disrupt that.

Poppy: So, we agree. You’ll keep this secret?

Luna: You make it sound so simple. But this is hell, mom. I mean, I’m terrified that this is gonna ruin every good thing in my life, ’cause that’s what secrets do.

Poppy: No, sweetheart.

Luna: Like yours did to me. I don’t know, it felt like everything was finally coming together. And then one night, a decision that I didn’t even have any control over– and now everything is different. And I don’t know if it’ll ever be the same again.

[ Knock on door ]

Finn: Hey.

Steffy: Finn.

Finn: I had to see you, steff. I just– I miss you so much. My doctorrecommends

Poppy: Honey, look at me. It’s gonna be all right.

Luna: I don’t know, mom.

Poppy: Well, I do. Because I know you. I know your heart. I know you’re a good person. Okay, you want to do the right thing.

Luna: But am I? Like, this doesn’t feel right, keeping this secret and lying to rj.

Poppy: It’s not a lie. You love rj. Hey, that’s true. That hasn’t changed.

Luna: But it has. I slept with zende and that’s always gonna be there, right under the surface.

Poppy: Zende has agreed not to say anything, and neither should you. You made a mistake. It doesn’t have to destroy everything. Okay, I can see you’re still not sure, but honey, you can’t tell rj. Please, tell me you understand that.

[ Door opens ]

Rj: Hey. Hi, you.

Luna: Hey.

Rj: Hello.

Zende: We’re just coming from rj’s place. I just wanted to stop by, let him know how lucky he is to be dating someone as wonderful as you, luna.

Poppy: You’re both lucky to have each other.

Luna: Um, yeah. Yeah, it makes me like a little emotional, actually. You know, thinking about everything that I have to be grateful for. Especially you, rj. And how happy we are together, and… all the things we have to look forward to. I mean, I never want to do anything to hurt you or let you down.

Rj: You never could.

Steffy: I’m really glad you’re here. I know it’s hard to be at the house right now.

Finn: Yeah, look, I don’t want this to keep me away from you and the kids.

Steffy: I know. And I agree.

Finn: I– I know it’s– it’s hard for you to understand and– and accept. And I– I wish I could explain what I’m feeling. I just… I’m struggling right now, um, with sheila’s death. And I don’t blame you, okay? Not at all. It just– it feels like something’s missing. Like a connection’s been cut.

Steffy: Between us?

Finn: No, no, no. Not between us. Just between my birth mother and me.

Steffy: I know you’re struggling. I’m struggling too. I killed someone, finn. I took someone’s life. And… what have I done? All I see is just the paramedics there trying to save her. And I was just– I was in shock. I was in shock. I was unable to breathe. And no matter what sheila’s done to us, it still doesn’t change the fact that I– I killed someone. I killed someone. And I’m really trying to come to terms with that, but I just can’t get this memory– I can’t get this memory out of my head. Like, it haunts me.

Finn: Just– we can’t let this tear us apart.

Steffy: No. No. No, we can’t let it tear us apart. We can’T. But will you ever be able to look at me the same way? I– I don’t even know if I can look at myself the same. I am so sorry. I’m so, so sorry. So sorry.

Li: Please, stop talking like this.

Finn: No, mom, look, of course I consider you my real mother. All right, but sheila, she– she gave birth to me.

Li: And she almost killed you and steffy and me, so please just snap out of it. Sheila gave you nothing but pain, finn. Pain and heartache, and now finally she’s gone.

Finn: Because of my wife.

Li: Your wife fought to save herself, finn. Survived a terrible ordeal. Be grateful she’s alive.

Finn: No, um, I mean, I am.

Li: Then, wake up. Get over these feelings you have about sheila carter before you do something foolish to alienate steffy.

Steffy: Liam, you’ve been amazing. Thank you so much for being here and just listening to me and watching kelly for a few days while I figure this out.

Liam: Of course I’m here, where else would I be? There’s nowhere else I wanna be.

Steffy: I just feel so guilty. I mean, god, I killed someone. Who wouldn’t feel guilty?

Liam: Yeah, but you were ambushed. There was literally no alternative.

Steffy: Liam, there was nothing I could’ve done differently.

Liam: Exactly, and everybody knows that.

Steffy: Not everyone.

Liam: Okay, everybody, but finn knows that. Okay, listen, I know he’s, like, having a moment right now, but you’re the one who almost died. And what you need more than anything is understanding. Something you should be getting from your husband.

[ Knock on door ]

Deacon: Yeah?

Hope: Dad?

Deacon: Hey, hope.

Hope: Uh, hollis called and said you went to the morgue today, and I figured you could use some company.

Deacon: Want a drink?

Hope: I, uh, wanted to see how you were holding up. I know sheila meant something to you.

Deacon: She still does. Look, I– I know this isn’t your favorite topic, so… when I found out she was gone, she was dead, I just– I had to go see her. I had to say goodbye, just… see her face one more time.

Li: Let it go. Sheila could never be what you wanted. This image you have as a loving, nurturing birth mother, she– it’s– it’s ludicrous.

Finn: Look, that’s not the way that I saw her. But look, I mean, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for sheila.

Li: Yes, if it wasn’t for her affair with your father. I’m very thankful she gave us you, but she almost took you away that night in the alley.

Finn: I know.

Li: Do you?

Finn: Yes.

Li: Then, how do you have any sympathy for that maniac?

Finn: I mean, like it or not, she’s part of my past. She’s my roots.

Li: All you shared was dna, nothing more.

Finn: So what, I should just be celebrating?

Li: No, that’s not what I’m saying. But you shouldn’t be mourning her either. Finn, does steffy know how you feel?

Finn: Yeah, I– I told her that it’s complicated for me. Not just that my birth mother is dead. It’s who killed her.

Liam: Finn has always straddled this line when it comes to sheila. And now, he’s walking out on you because of an attack on you?

Steffy: Well, he is still dealing with a lot right now.

Liam: I don’t care. This is his life that he chose. This is his home. You are his wife, for better or worse. Why isn’t he here?

Steffy: He said he’s trying to figure this all out. And I am trying to put myself in his shoes. We have survived many things. We can survive this. (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Deacon: You must think I’m nuts caring about someone who hurt so many people.

Hope: I’m not here to judge you, dad. I came here because I love you. And yes, while I didn’t have room in my heart for sheila… I certainly have room for you and always will.

Deacon: Wow, I just realized, hope, that you’re the only person I have in this world. You and the kids. And I just hope you know how much you all mean to me. I– I know I haven’t always done right by you. And I’m sure talking about my connection to sheila’s about the last thing you want to do.

Hope: I’m not going to lie to you and pretend like it– it wasn’t upsetting. I mean, it felt like you were making excuses for her. It felt like you were choosing her over us.

Deacon: I– I really am sorry. I never meant to do that. And, you know, the fact that i caused you pain, that kills me.

Hope: Dad, look, in spite of my contempt for sheila, I’m still, you know, I understand that there are going to be people in this world that mourn her.

Deacon: Besides me, I can’t think of anyone in this world who’s gonna mourn sheila.

Hope: I can think of one person who cared about sheila. Finn.

Finn: Look, it’s a lot to absorb, knowing what steffy did.

Li: What sheila forced her to do.

Finn: And I’m not– not blaming steffy for defending herself. I just– I– I don’t know, I just wish it didn’t have to be this way.

Li: If sheila stayed away like you asked her to, sheila would still be alive. Steffy didn’t go looking for trouble. Sheila put her in that position. She broke into your home.

Finn: And I wish I knew why.

Li: Why, because she’s a murderous stalker! That’s why! Listen, honey, I know you want to make sense of all of this. But you never will. None of it. Right now, you need to focus on being a good husband.

Finn: I’m doing the best I can. All right, you think I like being apart from my wife?

Li: Apart?

Finn: Yeah, I slept here last night. You left your wife alone? She was attacked, finn. She almost lost her life. You have all this compassion for sheila. Where’s your compassion for your wife? Finn, what’s going on with you? You need to get your head on straight. Before you cause permanent damage to your marriage.

Steffy: Honestly, liam, I just want finn to come home and work through this together. I mean, we’re both hurting right now. We’re struggling. But I know our love is stronger and more powerful than anything when we’re together.

Liam: Well, I give you a lot of credit for trying to understand where he’s coming from. But there is no excuse for him having even an ounce of pity for sheila because he’s got a wife and kids.

Steffy: There’s no doubt in my mind that finn cares about me and the kids.

Liam: I’m not implying he doesn’t care. But he has obligations here in this home. He has a duty to prioritize you and the kids. And he’s not. So, I’ll tell you this much. Whether finn is out there moping or here, I’m here. You can count on me. You and kelly and hayes can always count on me. (Imitating chicken clucks)

Hope: And when I came here to tell you about sheila, I was shocked when I walked in and I just– I saw finn sitting here just holding a photo of sheila. And he was so upset.

Deacon: I– I didn’t realize how deep his feelings for sheila ran. You know, the saddest irony of this whole thing is that more than anything, sheila wanted to be accepted and loved. And now, she’s not here to see that finn really did love her.

Finn: I don’t know what’s wrong with me. You know, I love you. And you know that I, um, I feel about you. And you know that I just I want to get back to our– our beautiful little life, but I’m sorry, I can’T. Steffy, I can’t be here.

Steffy: Finn, finn, finn. What are you doing? Finn.

Liam: Hi, john.

Finn: Ugh. Um, not now, liam. Um, I’m not in the mood.

Liam: Totally respect that, which is why I’m not gonna stay too long.

Finn: Are you not hearing me? Now is not a good time. I have a lot going on.

Liam: Yeah, no, I heard about what happened at your house.

Finn: What happened? Sheila died, liam.

Liam: Good thing steffy’s okay, though, right?

Finn: Yeah, I’m more thankful than anyone that she’s okay.

Liam: Really? ‘Cause I don’t know, I kinda feel like, I don’t know, you would be there then.

Finn: Excuse me?

Liam: I don’t get you. Like, I know that you’re going through a thing right now, but…

Finn: Uh, I am. So give me a minute. Do I not have the right to process this?

Liam: Yeah, I’m just not sure. What’s the thing that you’re processing? Is it the fact that your psychopath mother is dead? Or the fact that you walked out on your wife?

Steffy: Sheila, I know it’s you. Get out! I’ll do it!

[ Door opens ]

Hope: Steffy. I, uh, I didn’t think you would come in today.

Steffy: Yeah, I just had to, uh, I had to get out of the house.

Hope: I’m so, so sorry for what you’ve been through.

Steffy: It’s really upsetting to say the least. I, um, I can’t get sheila out of my head. I can’T. The way she lunged at me. I was only trying to protect myself.

Hope: I’m sure that was– is incredibly traumatizing. I mean, knowing that you had to kill someone. I can’t believe one bottle of tide

Liam: I was, uh, I was just with steffy.

Finn: You never waste an opportunity.

Liam: Yes, who happens to be my, uh, child’s mother.

Finn: Whatever, man. Can you, um, can you just stay away from my wife?

Liam: No, that’s not gonna work because then we’re both gonna be staying away from your wife and I’m actually concerned about steffy and the kids.

Finn: Well, don’t be. My birth mother, sheila, she’s dead.

Liam: Yeah, why do you do that? You’re trying to play it cool with me, but I know that you see sheila as this, like, warm, fuzzy, benevolent presence in your life. And do you know how that makes steffy feel? It’s alarming. It’s– it’s disloyal.

Finn: Okay, that’s– that’s enough, liam. Why don’t you just mind your own business, okay? This doesn’t concern you.

Liam: You really– you don’t have any idea how lucky you are. I mean, steffy is– is at home doing her best to wrap her head around this bizarre mama’s boy relationship you have with sheila, when any other woman put in that situation with that particular person would’ve dumped your ass, ages ago.

Finn: You don’t have to tell me how amazing steffy is. I’m well aware.

Liam: See, yeah, I was confused because instead of acting like it, you’re seemingly blaming her for almost getting murdered.

Finn: I am not blaming her.

Liam: She was protecting herself. She was protecting your family for you and you are hiding away here. Now, I’ve never understood your relationship with sheila. But this, you prioritizing your grief over her instead of taking care of your wife and kids.

Finn: That’s not what I’m doing.

Liam: No, it is what you’re doing. It is exactly what you’re doing, finn. You’re just lying to yourself about it. And it’s no wonder steffy feels so alone. Wait, she’s not alone. Because she has me. Well, there it is. Do I have your attention now? You see, I’m gonna do everything I can to make steffy feel safe and supported. And if you’re not up to that task, I’m the man she’s gonna start turning to.

Steffy: None of this has been easy for me, hope. Sheila broke into my home and went after me.

Hope: No, I– I know the details. You don’t need to relive that night. All I was trying to say, rather poorly, was that I– I can’t even begin to understand what you must be feeling. I mean, you had to kill someone. I mean, I don’t even think that I could do something like that.

Steffy: What is this? I didn’t have a choice. I didn’t want to do that. I didn’t want to have to grab the knife. But I needed to survive. It was either her or me. I had to protect myself.

Hope: No, of course.

Steffy: Have you forgotten that she shot me before?

Hope: No!

Steffy: Then, what is this? It’s like a weird vibe I am getting from you.

Hope: I– it’s– steffy, sheila has hurt my family too. She’s hurt my mom. I haven’t forgotten that.

Steffy: Let me tell you something. You would have done the exact same thing if you were in my situation.

Hope: I am sure that it was absolutely terrifying. I am sure that all you could think about was the children.

Steffy: Sheila tried to take me away from my children. I wasn’t gonna let that happen again.

Hope: I am just– I’m trying to say that I understand this is a very heavy burden to bear. I was just talking to my dad and he was saying that… look, roll your eyes at my dad and his feelings for sheila all you want. That’s fine. Just please don’t make that mistake with finn.

Steffy: What does this have to do with my marriage?

Hope: I saw finn. And we talked and… despite your feelings for sheila, steffy, finn still has a very real connection to her. And I am just trying to say finn is a good man. Steffy, please just be patient with him. Give him some time to grieve and to process this. I mean, we all– we all couldn’t stand sheila. But at the same time, I mean, that is still finn’s mother. I mean, he– he wouldn’t exist without her. So, I just– I hope you will try to be, I don’t know, just sympathetic to the fact that this is a very complex, difficult time for finn. He’s just in a very vulnerable place right now. I just hope that you will be careful. Steffy, please don’t let sheila’s death interfere with your marriage.

Recap written by Suzanne

The professional cleaners clean up Steffy’s house (because of Sheila’s blood and all) while she hovers nearby. She has a flashback to killing Sheila. One of them asks her if she’s OK and thinks she shouldn’t be alone.  She thanks them for making her feel safer.

Li goes to see Finn in his office. She’s overjoyed that Sheila’s dead, but he tells her to stop going on about it. Li keeps on talking about how awful Sheila was until Finn yells at her that his birth mother is dead. She looks stunned.

Eric and Donna are shocked after Ridge tells them that Steffy killed Sheila. They discuss it and are shocked to hear that Finn hasn’t been supportive of Steffy.

Deacon goes to the morgue to see Sheila (set up by Finn) and ends up chatting with the pathologist. He doesn’t understand how or why Sheila attacked Steffy. He talks to Sheila’s dead body, telling her how much he loved her. He has the pathologist uncover her face, so he can say goodbye one last time.

Liam drops by Steffy’s place to see her, and they hug. He gives her a shoulder to cry on. We learn that Kelly is staying with Liam, and Hayes has been with Li but is now with Brooke. Also, Steffy had a video chat with her mom. Liam assures Steffy that she did the right thing in defending herself against Sheila. Sheila still feels bad about taking a life. When Liam mentions that Finn will be home, she tells him that she’s not sure when that will happen. Liam is outraged to hear that Finn is not there for her but tells her that he’s there for her. They hug some more.

Recap written by Suzanne

Ridge consoles Steffy in her home. She’s still upset about having shot Sheila, and Finn walking out on her right before the police came.

Hope comforts Finn in her arms (in Deacon’s place). She understands that he has a connection with Sheila that the rest of them didn’t. She thinks he needs to process his grief. She advises him to get through this with Steffy.

RJ and Zende are shocked to learn from Thomas that Steffy killed Sheila.

Deacon drops by Steffy’s house, upset that Sheila is dead. She and Ridge are annoyed that he’s so upset and doesn’t seem to understand that Steffy acted in self defense. Deacon can’t understand why Sheila did this, since he knows she worked so hard to change. Deacon gets upset when Ridge says that she got what she deserved, and when he sees her blood on the floor.

After Deacon leaves, Finn arrives. Steffy is glad to see him. Ridge yells at him for not being there for Steffy, but Steffy asks Ridge to leave them alone. Steffy apologizes, and then she and Finn hug. She thinks they can get through anything together. However, when she goes to kiss him, he can’t bring himself to kiss her back (gee, maybe because his dead mom’s blood is still on the floor nearby?? Not very romantic!). He doesn’t know why he’s reacting the way that he is. He’s very uncomfortable and rushes out, apologizing that he needs more time. Steffy calls after him, shocked, and then she gets very upset that he’s left her all alone.

Hope tells Thomas about her visit with Deacon.

Steffy: I’ll do it!

Sheila: No!

Cleaner: Ma’am? Are you okay?

Steffy: What?

Cleaner: I’m sure this is a very difficult time for you, but… you really can’t be alone. Is your husband home?

Steffy: No. My husband’s not here.

Steffy: She’s gone, finn. Sheila’s dead. It was either her or me. I didn’t– I didn’t have time to think. I just– I just reacted. I– I had to survive.

Li: I can’t believe it. Sheila carter’s actually dead?

Eric: How’s steffy holding up?

Ridge: You know her. She’s strong, resilient.

Eric: No, yeah. But something like this.

Donna: Yeah, I can’t even imagine what it must have been like for steffy, to…

Eric: What an ordeal for her to have to go through. That she had to do what she had to do. Wow. Sheila carter’s finally dead.

Pathologist: Can I help you?

Deacon: Yeah, yeah, I’m deacon sharpe. I’m here to pay my respects to sheila carter.

Donna: It’s just so hard to believe.

Eric: Sheila carter’s finally out of our lives.

Ridge: The paramedics confirmed it. Sheila’s dead.

Pathologist: Since the police investigation is ongoing, the deceased’s body will remain here at the morgue.

Deacon: Right. Dr. Finnegan set this up for me. He thinks I need closure. Sheila and I were engaged to be married.

Finn: How’s hayes? Did he sleep okay?

Li: Yeah. Don’t worry about hayes. He loves spending time with grandma li.

Finn: Hm. He’s with brooke now?

Li: Yeah. Yeah, I had a meeting I couldn’t reschedule, but as soon as it’s over, I’ll go pick him up. Right now, though, I’m concerned for you. And steffy, of course. I hate that it happened the way it did. But I’m not sorry sheila’s dead.

Steffy: I, uh, I really appreciate everything. Cleaning my home and making it feel safe again.

Cleaner: Sorry you’re going through something so traumatic.

Steffy: Thanks.

[ Steffy sighs ]

Liam: Yeah, I heard.

Donna: What sheila did was– was crazy. And breaking in like that and taunting and terrorizing steffy.

Eric: Well, steffy did what she had to do. She had to stop sheila.

>>Idge: , She stopped her,: Is there anything that we can do? I mean, I’m sure steffy’s getting a lot of support. Especially from finn, but…

Ridge: Yeah, you would think that, wouldn’t you?

Eric: You saying he’s not being supportive?

Ridge: Listen, I like the kid and I respect him. But I’m confused why he’s so distraught by this woman dying.

Finn: Can we just not talk about sheila right now?

Li: Believe me, I’d like nothing more now that she’s finally out of our lives.

Finn: Well, she’s gone, mom. Okay? So just let it go.

Li: Let it go? After all that woman did? She went after steffy. Again. Intent on making sure she didn’t make it this time. Thank god steffy did. That she finally took out that sick, twisted psychopath for good. Sheila carter finally got what she deserved.

Liam: I mean, kelly’s doing great. She loves staying with me and her grandpa bill. Not that she doesn’t miss her mom and her little brother. I just think it’s probably best she stay with me for now.

Steffy: Yeah. Thank god she wasn’t here.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, I’m gonna do everything in my power to make sure she never finds out about it, but news these days.

Steffy: Yeah, I know. It travels fast. I’m sure she’s gonna hear things at school.

Liam: Well, try not to think too much about that. That’s the least of your worries. Just focus on getting past this and moving on.

Steffy: Yeah, you’re right. That’s exactly what my mom said when we video chatted. It’s just strange being here. Where it happened. I mean, sheila’s blood on the floor. But thankfully, the cleaners were here to take care of it.

Liam: Yeah, I saw that. Going out to the van.

Steffy: Hm. Just so much pain, you know, and heartache. It’s all because of sheila. I just never thought it was gonna end.

Liam: Well, it has. ‘Cause she’s dead. And she’s never gonna hurt anyone you care about ever again. I– I know that what you’ve just been through is traumatic. But please, steffy, please never doubt that you did the right thing. Please never doubt that you did exactly what you should’ve done. By killing her.

Deacon: It’s so cold in here. Um… look, I probably, uh, know the answer to this, but I’m gonna ask anyway. Has anyone else been here to see her? Anyone? God, I miss her so much. I’m probably the only one. I’m sorry I don’t even know why I’m saying this to you.

Pathologist: Sometimes it’s easier to open up to someone you don’t know. Would you like to see her now?

Deacon: Yeah.

Pathologist: I’ll give you a moment alone.

Deacon: Sheila, what the hell happened?

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Donna: Well, as horrible as sheila was, I mean she did give birth to finn.

Ridge: Yes, she did. And then she shot him and steffy in cold blood and left them in an alley to die. Not exactly mother of the year material.

Eric: No. But finn grew up never knowing who his birth mother was.

Ridge: Well, he knows who she was now. The woman who tried to kill his wife, twice. And you know what? Finn should be there for steffy right now and I don’t think he is.

Li: Karma’s a bitch. Sheila’s hurt so many people, it’s about time justice finally caught up with her. Quite frankly, I was beginning to think it never would. That her reign of terror will go on and on, but no more. Someone finally stopped her. Steffy finally stopped her. Which seems almost fitting. Sheila dying at your wife’s hands, given what sheila did behind that restaurant. Pointing a gun at steffy, then pulling the trigger, leaving her and you both for dead. But that’s who sheila was. Heartless, soulless, vile.

Finn: Okay, can you just stop? Stop, mom. Sheila was a person, a human being, and now she’s dead. My birth mother is dead.

Liam: Steffy, you did what anyone in your position would and should have done. It’s black and white. You defended yourself. The woman wanted you dead, right? She probably thought that she’d have finn and hayes all to herself if you were out of the picture.

Steffy: Believe me, I know that, liam. But I– I took a life. I mean, that’s not who I am.

Liam: What if kelly were here? She could’ve been hurt. She could’ve been kidnapped. Or worse. Every single one of you was in jeopardy as long as sheila was alive and breathing. And because of you, none of us ever have to worry about her again.

Deacon: Sheila carter. I– I don’t understand this. Sheila, I– I saw you change. I saw it with my own eyes. I just don’t understand. How did this happen?

Not flossing well?

Deacon: You’re so peaceful. Which is almost funny because that’s about the last word I’d ever use to describe you. I never told you this, but i used to always think of you like a beautiful rainstorm. Unpredictable, never boring. One minute, chaotic and relentless, and the next, exhilarating and intoxicating. I’ve always, um, felt like I was alone, even in a room full of people. I just got used to not needing anybody. And then I met– then I met you. And I needed you. And I didn’t give a damn what anyone thought. Because I knew what I was supposed to do next. I was gonna stand by you, no matter what. But now, I– I don’t know what to do next. I’m never gonna forget you. You are always gonna be a part of me, sheila. Do you think I could see her face? Rest in peace, beautiful girl.

Donna: Wait, what do you mean finn isn’t with steffy?

Eric: What is this, ridge? What’s going on?

Ridge: Well, finn can’t come to terms with the fact that his wife had to defend herself and kill his birth mother. He should be with steffy right now. And he’s not.

Li: I am your mother, finn. Not sheila.

Finn: Of course you are. But I just–

Li: No buts. What’s– what’s going on with you? If you’re reacting this way with me, I can only imagine what steffy’s thinking.

Liam: Well, uh, yeah. I shouldn’t stay long. I imagine finn will be home soon and I don’t wanna cause any tension. That’s probably the last thing you need right now, so. Steffy?

Steffy: Yeah. Finn will be home soon, won’t he?

Steffy: I don’t know. I don’t know if and when my husband’s coming home.

Liam: What are you talking about?

Steffy: God. Finn is struggling with sheila’s death. He, um… he says that I’m responsible.

Liam: Oh, really? Finn is struggling? He’s struggling? Such a struggle for him. I don’t care. That is ridiculous. I don’t care that she’s his birth mother. She tried to kill you. You were defending yourself and his entire focus right now should be on you and the kids. How does he not understand that?

Steffy: No, no. I mean, he does. I mean, this whole… god. This whole situation is really disturbing and it’s emotionally challenging. Like, I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t want sheila in here. But she gave me no choice. I had to grab a knife. I had to protect myself.

Liam: Yes. Exactly. You had to do what you had to do to survive. You’re not doing anything wrong. You didn’t do anything wrong. You’re not this horrible human being that was sheila. This is the whole point. That’s who she was. Everybody understands that. Everybody gets that. So, it’s kind of beyond me why finn doesn’T. You know what else is beyond me? That he isn’t here right now. Because I’m here. I’m here for whatever you want, whenever you want it. My love and support is free.

Steffy: Thank you. Thank you for just listening to me and being here.

Li: Steffy is your wife. She needs you now more than ever.

Ridge: I’m so sorry for everything you’re going through. This woman breaking in here and attacking you, and… you having to defend yourself. I just am so happy that–

Steffy: I’m just really glad that you’re here. I know the threat is gone, but it’s nice that I’m not alone right now.

Ridge: I’ll always be here. Whatever you need. And your husband should be here too. Where’s finn?

[ Finn groans ]

Finn: You must think I’m insane for reacting this way.

Hope: No, finn, I… I don’T. Look, the woman who gave you life has died. You are allowed to grieve that.

Finn: Yeah, but the woman that she was and the… and the things that she did? You know, it’s not like I’ve forgotten.

Hope: Of course you haven’T. I mean, finn, but, look, to everyone else, we just… myself included, we just knew her for… for the crazy, for the crimes. But to you?

Finn: But to me, she was my mother. She was this woman who brought me into the world. And… and now she’S… she’s gone. She’s dead. That’s because of steffy.

Rj: She’s dead?

Thomas: Yeah.

Rj: Oh, my god. Is steffy okay?

Zende: Carter just filled me in. It’s really true. Steffy killed sheila.

Rj: Wait, the kids. Were– were they–

Thomas: No. Kelly and hayes weren’t home. Yeah, steffy was by herself when sheila broke in.

Rj: Steffy must be in shock right now.

Thomas: Yeah, she’s shaken up, that’s for sure. Look, steffy hated sheila, but she never intended to kill her.

Steffy: I told sheila to leave, but she kept inching closer and closer to me. I thought she had a gun, and then she lunged at me. I mean, I was trying to protect myself.

Ridge: I know, I understand. Everybody does.

Steffy: Even finn?

[ Loud knocking ]

Ridge: Oh, deacon, what’s up?

Deacon: You killed sheila?

Finn: I just– I can’t believe that this is happening. I… I keep seeing sheila’s blood on the floor, the way it looked, and on my hand, and I mean… I mean, she was murdered in my house by my wife.

Hope: But steffy must be horrified too. I mean, what she went through tonight?

Finn: You know, she says it was self-defense, and not that I don’t believe her, it’s just… hope, this is– this is overwhelming.

Hope: I mean, this is– this is going to take time for both you and steffy.

Finn: I couldn’t even look at her.

Hope: Steffy?

Finn: Yeah. I couldn’t hold my wife. I– I couldn’t touch her. I don’t want to… I don’t want to say this, but I don’t think I can… I don’t think I can be in that house. Wanna know how I get this glow?!

Zende: Do you think that steffy could be in trouble for this?

Rj: No. Well, I mean, she already tried to kill steffy once. She shot my mom and yours. I mean… I mean, I’m not gonna say I’m sad that she’s gone.

Thomas: I agree. And in terms of the police, my dad texted me, told me that chief baker was there asking some questions and I’m sure that’s totally normal in this kind of situation. Look, we’re gonna do everything in our power to protect her.

Steffy: I don’t know what you heard, but–

Deacon: Is it true, steffy? Did you kill sheila? I mean, finn wouldn’t lie about that, would he?

Ridge: Finn?

Steffy: Finn told you?

Deacon: See, he said that, uh, she wasn’t gonna be coming back and the police were involved. And I thought– I thought maybe she came back here and you had her arrested. You convinced the police–

Steffy: There was no time to call the police. Sheila was on a mission. She tried to lunge at me! I grabbed a knife. It was self-defense.

Deacon: You wanted her dead. You said that at my place. You taunted her.

Ridge: What are you implying here?

Deacon: Was this premeditated? Did you plan this?

Steffy: Premeditated? What are you talking about? I wanted a night with my husband. That lunatic came onto my property.

Ridge: And she attacked my daughter. Left her no choice. No choice at all. And sheila got what she deserved.

Finn: I wasn’t there when it– when it happened. I– I didn’t witness it, but… every time I close my eyes, I see it. I see steffy holding the knife and stabbing sheila. I can’t– I can’t get the image out of my head.

Hope: No, but you will though. Eventually. I promise. Your brain is just trying to– to make sense of all of this.

Finn: Well, you probably thought sheila had it coming.

Hope: I think, uh, I think my feelings on the matter are very complicated. And if that’s true for me, I can only imagine what you’re going through. Finn, I know you don’t condone the things that sheila has done. And yet you still feel a connection to her. And that is understandable. You have every right to grieve the loss of your mother. I just want you to– to also focus on what is most important. And that is the fact that your family is okay. Steffy, the kids, they’re safe. So, if you focus on that, eventually, everything will be all right.

Finn: Yeah, will it though?

Hope: I– I mean, some people might have a hard time understanding what you’re going through. But, uh, I get it. And I can assure you your feelings are valid. So, I– I’m here for you. Whatever you need. (Man) mm, hey, honey.

Deacon: Got what she deserved? My god, ridge, are you really that cruel?

Ridge: You do remember what she did to my family.

Deacon: I know that she changed.

Ridge: Really?

Deacon: I’d never seen anybody work so hard to better themselves. All she ever wanted was to be accepted.

Ridge: So, the woman that broke in here, attacked my daughter again, that’s the better version of sheila? Is that what you’re saying?

Deacon: I don’t understand this. This doesn’t make sense.

Ridge: Nothing she ever did made sense.

Deacon: Steffy, are you sure that you– you didn’t misinterpret something that–

Steffy: Interpret? Deacon, what are you talking about? She broke into my home. She refused to leave.

Ridge: It’s okay. That’s enough. My daughter had a bit of a rough night. What she needs right now is support. It seems to me you came over here to defend some idiot who you think was in love with you. It’s time to go.

Deacon: You didn’t know her. Not like I did. She was in love with me. This wasn’t something that I– I made up in my head. This wasn’t a lie. You know what? I loved her too.

Finn: Thanks for saying that and for being here. Just… the problem is, is I don’t know what I need. It’s just– I just wish none of this ever happened.

Hope: Well, uh, maybe think of it this way. Even if it didn’t, sheila was still being sheila. She was out there in the dark, in that storm, terrorizing your wife, so realistically, finn, I mean, I don’t know how much of a future relationship was there for you. I think a little too much damage has been done.

Finn: No, I know. I know, and I didn’T… want any of that. I wasn’t hoping for that.

Hope: Look, I get you probably spent most of your life wondering about who your birth mother was. You know, daydreaming about her and… then you got sheila.

[ Finn chuckles wryly ] So, I think maybe you should focus on the blessings that you actually do have in your life. You know, your work, helping others, the friends that care about you, the mother who actually was there for you who did raise you. And not to mention, steffy. Kelly, hayes… your beautiful family.

Finn: Oh, you’re right. You’re absolutely right. And I– I… I don’t know why I’m reacting this way.

Hope: Because you’re human. And sheila was still your mom.

Finn: But she shot me. And she shot my wife. And that is what I should be picturing when I close my eyes. Not sheila’s blood, but my blood and my wife’S. Thank you, hope. Thank you.

Ridge: I can’t believe that idiot came all the way over here to accuse you. Sorry.

Steffy: What if deacon goes to the police? What if he tells them that I wanted sheila dead?

Ridge: We all wanted sheila dead. That’s not news. We wanted that for decades. The police know that. And they’re gonna come and they’re gonna interview you, and we’re gonna have attorneys here and it’s gonna be fine because you’re covered.

Steffy: Yeah, I hope you’re right. I just wish finn were here.

Ridge: I can’t believe he’s not here.

[ Door opens ]

Steffy: Finn. Deacon was just here. He told me that you went to his apartment. You told him?

Finn: Yeah, I, uh… yeah, I felt the need to… to go there and… you know, where she lived and feel close to her.

Ridge: What? Close to her? What are you talking about?

Steffy: Dad, dad–

Ridge: You need to be here. You need to be here for your wife.

Steffy: Hey, I love you, but I need to talk to finn, okay? Alone.

Ridge: Okay. Hey… sheila is dead. I’m sorry to hurt your feelings. You need to be here. Your wife, your kids, your house, your responsibility.

Steffy: I hate that you’re upset. Your birth mother died tonight. I understand why you’re upset. I’m upset. I took a life tonight. I never wanted this. Finn, I am… I am so sorry. Everything you’re going through right now, everything you’re feeling, just know that I am so, so sorry.

[Bell dings]

Thomas: So, how’d it go? Breaking the news to your dad?

Hope: I, uh, didn’t see him. Actually, by the time I got there, he had already gone. Someone told him.

Thomas: Oh, well, who got to him first?

Hope: Finn.

Thomas: Finn?

Hope: I walked in and he was just sitting on the couch holding a photo of sheila. I just, I don’t know. I think he was trying to wrap his head around it all, or maybe he wanted to be in the house where she last lived.

Thomas: But, I mean, sheila’s not some normal doting mother. She’s a psychopath.

Hope: Well, yeah, I’m– I’m aware, but…

Thomas: But?

Hope: Finn still feels a connection to her.

Thomas: To sheila.

Hope: Come on, thomas, wouldn’t you?

Thomas: Look, I– I feel bad for finn and the dna hand he was dealt, but at some point you have to accept it and move on.

[ Hope sighs ]

Hope: Well, hopefully, our little talk helped with that.

Thomas: I’m sure it did.

Hope: Mm. I think I got through to him. Yeah, I… feel bad, but I really tried to drive the point home, you know, get him to realize where he belongs right now.

Thomas: Yeah, with steffy, right? His wife. That’s exactly where he needs to be.

Steffy: Did it help going to deacon’s?

Finn: Uh, I don’t know. Maybe. None of this makes sense, how I’m reacting. It’s just what you… you know, what happened tonight and what you did, it’s– it’s– it’s horrible. It’s surreal.

Steffy: But I want to be able to– to face this with you, because, honestly, I– I don’t think I can, I don’t think I can do this alone.

Finn: Look, you won’t have to, okay? I’m your husband. I’m here with you. And I’m so thankful that you and… that you and the kids are all right.

[ Steffy gasps emotionally ] You know, knowing what you faced tonight, and that you could be terrorized in any way, or traumatized.

Steffy: No, no. We’re gonna survive this. We are, because, finn, we can get through anything together. We can overcome any obstacle, okay?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: Thank you for coming home. Oh, god. Oh… oh, I needed this. I just need to feel close to you. Finn?

Finn: I don’t know what’s wrong with me. You know I love you and you know that I, um… I feel about you and you know that I just… you know, I want to get back to our beautiful little life, but… I think, um… I think everything that’s, uh, that’s happened, and just, just kind of be, like being here, and um, I– I think I just maybe need a little more, um… I think I need a little more time, okay? I think I just need some–

Steffy: What?

Finn: Some time. No, it’s just, um… everything that’S… that’s happened, and I know that sheila isn’t– isn’t, um… she– she didn’t raise me, but she is my mother, and I… I– I can’t, I’m sorry, I can’t– steffy, I can’t be here.

Steffy: Finn. Finn…

Finn: I can’T. I can’T.

Steffy: Finn, what are you doing? Finn! Finn, what are– come on!

Steffy: Finn, I’m so sorry.

Finn: I just– I can’t believe that my mother’s dead and my wife killed her.

Steffy: I didn’t mean to. Sheila gave me no choice. I had to defend myself. If I hadn’t, I’d be dead.

Finn: It’s just… sheila’s blood has always been inside of me and now my birth mother’s blood is on my hand. And yours, steffy.

Hope: I can’t believe this.

Ridge: No, that’s true.

Brooke: Steffy actually killed sheila?

Ridge: She had no choice.

Brooke: My god.

Thomas: It was self-defense.

Carter: Well, how’s steffy?

Ridge: She’s shaken, but she’s not hurt, so good.

Thomas: The kids were out of the house for overnights.

Brooke: Things would’ve been so much worse if kelly and hayes had been there.

Ridge: I didn’t even wanna think about that.

Carter: Hope, you said things between steffy and sheila had been heated up lately. That they had a confrontation.

Ridge: That’s par for the course when sheila’s involved. You’ve been awfully quiet.

Thomas: Hey, steffy had to defend herself.

Ridge: You understand that, right?

Hope: I just– I’m just in shock that, uh, she took her– her, um, husband’s birth mother’s life.

Hope: Don’t misunderstand me. I’m not suggesting that steffy crossed a line. I mean, we all know sheila. How dangerous she can be. And I’m sure that, you know, steffy had to make that choice to defend herself. It was terrifying for her– the wind howling outside, the power being out– and then who breaks in but sheila?

Ridge: Same woman that shot my daughter, left her for dead.

Carter: It was a nightmare.

Brooke: Not only did she shoot steffy, that lunatic shot her own son.

Thomas: And even with all of that, finn’s feelings for sheila still aren’t black and white.

Hope: Well, I– I mean, try to see it from finn’s perspective. He still has to reconcile the fact that his own wife killed his mom.

Finn: I realize the horrible things that sheila has done to you and your family. I mean, she almost killed us, almost destroyed our family. I’m– I’m fully aware, and it is inexcusable. But it doesn’t change the fact that she is my birth mother. She was my birth mother. I mean, she was someone that I… would lose sleep over as a kid. You know, trying to figure out if that’s where I got my smile or– or my drive, and… I can’t tell you how much it– it meant to me when I finally got to meet her and– and know my biology. Even– even after knowing who she really was. But now I’m– I’m never gonna see her again, because you killed her.

Steffy: Finn, I get that this is difficult for you, but sheila broke in here. She lunged at me. She had a crazy look in her eye. The same look that she had when she shot us in the alley. Finn, we have children. What was I supposed to do except defend myself?

Finn: No, I understand that. Okay? But it doesn’t change the fact that my mom died here. Okay, she died in my own home. At the hands of my wife.

[ Sirens wailing ] I can’T. I can’t– I can’t do this.

Steffy: What?

Finn: I can’t– I can’t– I can’t do this with the police.

Steffy: What are you doing? Head & shoulders is launching something huge.

Ridge: I have a real tough time accepting this, um– this deep connection that sheila and finn have.

Hope: Okay, but she is still his birth mother.

Ridge: Yeah, and I get that. She gave him life, and after that, she was nowhere to be found. Li raised him. She– she’s the one that’s a real mother to him.

Hope: Can you really not see how this might be complicated for finn? The fact that his wife killed the woman who gave him life?

Thomas: In self-defense. Okay, but to be fair, we only saw finn’s initial reaction. Right? Now, he’s over there, he’s with his wife, maybe he’s had time to process, maybe he’s had time to hear her side of the story and he can actually come to a place to support her how he’s supposed to.

Ridge: What if he can’t? What if he’s so broken up about this woman dying that he can’t be there for steffy? That he can’t support her? She needs him right now. Police are gonna come back, detectives are gonna… I’m going back over there.

Brooke: I’m sure she’d appreciate all the support she can get.

Carter: I’ll go with you.

Ridge: No, no, I– I got it. I don’t want it to look like we need a lawyer right now. I’ll be back.

Brooke: Honey? You okay? I know it’s a lot to take in.

Hope: I know I’m the only one here defending finn, but he’s not the only one who has complex feelings where sheila’s involved. Despite my objections to their relationship, dad still thought he was in love with her. And so, when he finds out about sheila’s death, I mean, he’s going to be devastated.

Deacon: You know, if you get hungry, we’ve got the best pizza in town. I’ve got a fantastic risotto tonight with some nice shrimp. Excuse me.

Baker: It’s so hard to believe. After all these years, history with your family, that we’re even having this conversation.

Steffy: Yeah.

Baker: According to the police report, sheila carter was killed here, in your home.

Steffy: Yeah, in self-defense.

Baker: Wanna tell me how it happened?

Steffy: Yeah, I was– um, I was alone. It was dark and I, uh, I heard a noise.

Baker: What kind of noise?

Steffy: Like a– like a banging. Sounded deliberate.

[ Distant banging ]

Baker: You mean as if someone were trying to scare you or gain entrance?

Steffy: I– I don’t know. I just– I kept hearing it, so I wanted to see if anyone was there.

Baker: And was there anybody?

Steffy: No. No one. I kept hearing the noise, but I just assumed it was the wind.

Baker: That had to be unnerving.

Steffy: It was, yeah. But when I couldn’t see anything, I just continued to make dinner. And then, uh, that’s when the– uh, the power went out. And I started looking for some candles, and then I saw a shadow above me. And I turned around and sheila was right there. She was right– she was right here. She started coming close to me, and, I– I don’t know, she went in her pocket. It seemed like she was about to take out a gun to shoot me.

Baker: Well, according to the report, sheila was unarmed. There was no gun, no weapon.

Steffy: But I– I could have swore she– she had a gun. I mean, she shot me before. Of course I thought she was gonna shoot me again. I told her to stay away, but she just kept coming. So I grabbed the knife. And that’s when she lunged at me.

No! And I stopped her.

Baker: With the knife?

Steffy: Yes.

Baker: So, you admit that you stabbed sheila carter?

Steffy: In self-defense, yes.

Deacon: Finn. What are you doing here? Are you all right?

Finn: Cops are at my house.

Deacon: Cops? Something happen with steffy and the kids?

Finn: Sheila went there.

Deacon: No. No, she promised me that she’d stay away from you and your family. No, man, we’re good.

Finn: Sheila’s not coming back. Not ever.


Hope: Look, I know that no one gets my dad’s relationship with sheila. I certainly did not. But he still genuinely cared about her. And I know he’s– he’s going to be hit really hard when he hears the news.

Brooke: Well, at least he’s free. Look, I know that sounds bad, but I’m not sorry that sheila is no longer a threat. She was a monster.

Carter: Yeah, I don’t know how your dad did it, hope. But somehow he saw something redeemable in her.

Thomas: Maybe. I do know one other good thing. Your dad. He doesn’t have to keep his distance from you or the kids anymore.

Brooke: He’s gonna need you, now more than ever.

Hope: And I want to be there for him. Starting tonight.

Brooke: Where are you going?

Hope: I think I need to be the one to tell my dad the news.

Thomas: I’ll go with you.

Hope: No, no, no. Thank you, but I think this needs to be between my dad and me.

Thomas: Okay.

Baker: You say that sheila lunged at you?

Steffy: Yes.

Baker: But you never saw a weapon in her hand.

Ridge: Don’t answer that.

Steffy: Dad, it’s fine. I’m not guilty of anything. I was just trying to protect myself.

Baker: I’m just trying to get the complete story.

Ridge: All right. Psycho broke into her house. I don’t know. Tried to harm you. Maybe tried to harm the kids. Attacked steffy. Steffy put her down. That’s it. Case closed.

Baker: That’s not really for you to say, is it?

Ridge: Maybe not, but this is. She’s tired. It’s been a day. Traumatized. There’s blood on the floor. We’re done here.

Baker: For now. But you know I will be asking more questions, right?

Steffy: Fine.

Ridge: Not without an attorney. Hey. Sorry you have to go through this. Where’s finn?

Steffy: I don’t know. He left.

Deacon: What do you mean, sheila’s not coming back?

Finn: Something happened.

Deacon: Yeah, I’m starting to get that. What? You mentioned the cops. Did steffy have her arrested?

Finn: No. Steffy didn’t have her arrested.

Deacon: Finn, what the hell is going on with you? You’re acting weird. Look, if something happened with sheila, you need to tell me now.

Finn: Sheila broke into our house. Threatened steffy.

Deacon: No.

Finn: Steffy grabbed a kitchen knife to protect herself. Sheila lunged at steffy and in self-defense… steffy stabbed sheila. She killed her.

Finn: I’m sorry. I know that you’re one of the few people who has feelings for my mother. I didn’t wanna have to tell you.

Deacon: Sheila’s dead? How?

Finn: She broke in. She lunged at–

Deacon: I heard that! I heard that part. Steffy killed her?

Finn: In self-defense. Look, I’m sorry that she’s gone, too, okay? She was my mother.

Thomas: I’m glad dad went over to steffy’S. She shouldn’t have to talk to the police right now.

Carter: I wish he would’ve let me come along. Offer counsel.

Brooke: Well, steffy has nothing to hide. And having a lawyer there might make the detectives doubt her story.

Thomas: I can’t believe we’re talking about any of this. I mean, steffy’s just at home, by herself, minding her own business, trying to cook dinner, and someone breaks into the house, attacks her, she has to defend herself, she has to kill someone. I– I can’t imagine what she’s feeling right now.

Hope: Dad?

Finn: Uh, deacon’s not here. He, um– he– he went somewhere.

Hope: Finn, why– why aren’t you home?

Finn: I– I couldn’t stay.

Hope: I heard about your mom, that she’s gone. I actually– I came here to tell my dad. I– I can’t imagine he’s going to take the news well, so.

Finn: Yeah, that’s– that’s why he left. I told him. Maybe I shouldn’t have. He seems pretty shaken up. There’s a lot of that going on right now.

Hope: Finn, I’m– I’m sorry.

Finn: I shouldn’t be this upset. After everything that she’s done to me. I mean, she shot me, she… shot my wife, she held me hostage, and even to the bitter end, sheila was being sheila. She was… she broke into my house, she threatened my wife. I should hate her. But why don’t I hate her? You know, I know the party line. Sheila isn’t worthy of love. I mean, I don’t know, is that what this is? This is just some awful sense of loss and like a missed opportunity? I don’t think I loved her. I mean, how could I? Right? She was an animal that got what she deserved. I mean, that’s what ridge said. Ridge thinks I should feel that way. She was my mom. And now I’m not gonna get to see her. I don’t get to see her again.

Hope: Finn, I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.

Ridge: You need your husband. He should be here. Where the hell is finn?

Thomas: Finn, you can’t blame any of us for being relieved.

Steffy: Finn, it was self-defense. She came at me, I grabbed a knife to protect myself. I didn’t want to stab her, but I had no choice.

Ridge: We all would’ve done exactly the same thing. I know she gave birth to you, but she also terrorized this family for decades. She came after you, she left you for dead in an alleyway. She tried to kill your wife. And I’m sorry I called her an animal in front of you, but that’s who she was to me. She put this on herself.

Finn: Well, that animal was my mother.

Brooke: I just can’t believe it.

Carter: Okay, the press doesn’t have it yet, but we need to be prepared. I’ll text ridge about looping in katie.

Brooke: Sheila’s really dead?

Carter: Yes.

Hope: And we’re sure that this isn’t another one of her tricks?

Carter: My contact at the police department said the coroner retrieved her body.

Hope: But– but where? I mean, what– what happened?Pp

Carter: I don’t know, but it was from steffy and finn’s house.

Brooke: What?

Hope: Are they okay? Are the kids okay?

Carter: No other injuries reported according to the officers at the scene.

Brooke: Carter, we need more information. If sheila’s body was found at steffy’s, something horrible must have happened.

Hope: The police have said that sheila was dead before.

Carter: That is true, but this time they pronounced it. Her body was picked up at the scene.

Brooke: Somebody has to tell ridge.

Carter: I did. I was just with him. Thomas, too.

Hope: Okay, where– where are they now? I mean, do they have more details?

Carter: They will soon. When they heard what happened, they rushed over to check on steffy.

Finn: How can you be so callous? My mother just died. She died right here.

Ridge: Bad news, awful. Could have been worse. Could have been your wife. Could have been one of your kids.

Thomas: Yeah, thank god the kids weren’t here.

Steffy: Sheila forced her way into our home, finn. She tried to attack me. I– I grabbed a knife. I reacted.

Ridge: It’s okay. It’s okay now.

Finn: No, it’s not. It’s not okay.

Thomas: Finn, you’re in shock.

Ridge: Steffy told us what happened. What’s done is done. I’m not being insensitive, but thomas and i we’re here because we want to take care of steffy. We’re gonna all sit down and figure out what’s next.

Finn: You just remember that someone died, okay? And it was my mother. It was my mother. One breath…

Brooke: Anything?

Carter: Not yet.

Hope: I mean, there’s nothing on socials yet. Would your friend on the force know anything more?

Carter: If he got an update, he’d gave me a call.

Brooke: All he told you was that sheila died?

Carter: Well, actually, he said she was killed.

Brooke: Killed?

Hope: Okay, so, I mean… maybe there is a chance that this wasn’t an accident?

Carter: Whatever happened, sheila didn’t survive.

Hope: This does not feel real. This does not feel real.

Carter: It was an emergency call out to steffy’s house. One fatality, no other injuries. The police and the coroner arrived, and the person that was killed was identified as sheila carter.

Brooke: Identified by whom?

Carter: I don’t know. But if finn, steffy, the kids were hurt, we’d be at the hospital right now, not here waiting for news.

Hope: I just– I still can’t believe that they recovered sheila’s body at the cliff house. I mean, I’m sorry, but this is– this is, like, all too weird for me. I mean, after all the years of just strife that sheila has put this family through, all of the pain, all of the hurt. And then to find out about her connection to finn, and then to find out about her involvement with my dad.

Carter: Yeah, as long as she was out there, no one was safe.

Brooke: I have to say, the idea of sheila being gone, it’s– it’s an unbelievable relief.

Hope: I have to agree.

Carter: It’s gonna take some time to process. Like you said, it’s hard to believe.

Brooke: She has fooled us before.

Carter: I don’t think we have to worry about that anymore.

Brooke: Why haven’t we heard anything? When did thomas and ridge leave the office?

Carter: Pretty much the minute I told them where sheila was found. They couldn’t get to that house fast enough.

Steffy: Finn, I love you so much. I know this is difficult for you. I’m trying to be understanding, but we’re all really freaked out right now.

Thomas: We’re not trying to ignore your loss, finn. We’re here for steffy. Make sure that she’s okay after what she went through. And to make sure that the cops don’t try and put something on her, like a crime, when in reality, it was self-defense.

Ridge: Your wife was attacked. The attacker is dead. Steffy’s fine, I thank god for that.

Thomas: So do I.

Finn: I never want anything bad to happen to you.

Ridge: Good. She’s the most important person in your life.

Finn: And I am. I’m– I’m beyond grateful that you’re okay, and that… it’s hard for me to see any of this, you know? I mean, it was never all right, but you know what you don’t understand? Is that animal wasn’t nothing. All right? She gave me life.

Ridge: We understand that. She gave you life, and then she tried to take it away.

Finn: Something was wrong. At the end, I was– I was at the hospital, and I wanted to come home, and I just– I was waiting on a call. I should have been here because I could’ve done something. I could’ve done something because I’m a doctor. We save people. We– we don’t end lives. We’re not– we’re not killers.

Ridge: And steffy’s not a killer either. Some lunatic broke into her house. She did the only thing she could’ve done. She did what she did so she wouldn’t end up on the ground the way she did before. And you want to defend your mother? What, do you think this is tragic? This is a miracle. Your wife is not harmed. Your kids are not harmed. And this woman came over here to hurt people. That’s the only reason she came over here. Look at me! Hey! This is your wife. You need to be strong for her. She went through something very traumatic.

Finn: Yeah, she killed my mom. She killed her.

Steffy: I think that– I think you and thomas should, uh, you guys should go. I just want some time alone with– with finn, okay?

Ridge: Yeah, the police is gonna come. They’re gonna ask you questions. I need to be here for that.

Steffy: I’ll– I’ll call you.

Ridge: Okay. You did the right thing. You did the only thing you could have done. I’m gonna make sure that everyone understands that. I love you.

Steffy: I love you.

Ridge: We’ll pick up the kids, don’t worry about that.

Thomas: I love you.

Steffy: I love you.

Thomas: If you need anything, I’ll be here.

Steffy: Yeah.

Thomas: Okay.

Steffy: You feel so far away right now. Maybe my dad is right. If we just– if we talk to each other, if we support each other. Look, I– I understand what happened. It’s horrible, but we can get through it. We can get through anything. (Vo) the shape that stole your heart

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Hope: Is it ridge?

Brooke: “Me and thomas are on the way to the office.” They’ll be here pretty soon.

Hope: Okay. Did they see steffy or finn?

Brooke: He said he’ll explain everything when he gets here.

Hope: Okay, but– but the kids, are they safe? Are they…

Carter: Ridge wouldn’t leave them if they still needed him.

Hope: Okay, and I know that thomas wouldn’t leave his sister’s side, but…

Brooke: What was sheila doing at that house?

Carter: Sheila’s obsessed. She wants a– hm. She wanted a place in finn’s life to get to hayes, and she always blamed steffy for standing in the way.

Hope: Well, I’m sure she was furious after the little confrontation that they had.

Carter: What confrontation?

Brooke: Kelly went to il giardino with a friend, and that friend’s mom and sheila was there. Sheila spoke to kelly and steffy found out.

Carter: And you think that’s what this is about?

Hope: I mean, steffy did go over there and things got physical.

Carter: Wait, sheila went after steffy?

Hope: Steffy actually punched sheila in the face.

Ridge: Carter, good. You’re still here.

Brooke: Ridge.

Ridge: Gotta make some phone calls.

Brooke: What happened?

Carter: Are steffy and finn okay?

Hope: Are the children all right?

Thomas: Yeah, everybody’s alright.

Brooke: Is it true? What carter heard? That sheila is dead?

Steffy: Finn. Finn! I can see how upset you are. I am too. What happened– it was– it was horrific. It was horrific. I don’t know. I don’t know how sheila got in here and maybe she is the reason the power went out. I thought it was the wind. I thought it was the storm. And then, I heard a noise. And I turned around, and sheila was right there. She was right there. And she was coming towards me. I had to defend myself. I didn’t want to die. So yes, I grabbed a knife. I did. And I told her to stop. I told her to get away. God, I didn’t– I didn’t want to be taken away from you, kelly, and hayes again. I wasn’t gonna let sheila do that, so yes, finn, yes. I did it. I did what I had to do to protect myself. I stabbed sheila.

Finn: Yeah, you killed my mother. Breathing claritin clear is like…

Brooke: So is it really true?

Hope: Sheila’s gone?

Brooke: She’s not up to one of her tricks.

Ridge: The witch is dead.

Hope: Okay, so how? What happened?

Brooke: And what was she doing? Looking for finn? Or trying to get to hayes?

Hope: Well, I mean, steffy was at the house. I saw finn earlier at the hospital, and he told me he was worried about her and was rushing home.

Ridge: Well, he’s there now or we wouldn’t have left.

Hope: Okay, so I know we shouldn’t celebrate things like this, but I– if sheila is really gone. I mean, all that– all that fear, all– all of that worry, I mean, is it– is it finally over?

Ridge: You know, even dead, she causes problems for our family.

Brooke: What do you mean, causes problems? Ridge?

Ridge: There’s no easy way to say this, but I have to say it because we all have to handle it. It was justified, and sheila had it coming.

Thomas: Steffy was home. Alone.

Ridge: The power went out, and sheila broke into the house.

Brooke: Oh, no.

Thomas: Sheila threatened and attacked steffy.

Hope: Wait, was steffy able to call the police?

Ridge: The police got there after.

Carter: After what?

Ridge: After steffy killed sheila.

Brooke: What?

Thomas: Steffy was able to grab a knife. She had to do it.

Ridge: It was sheila or her.

Hope: Well, does– does finn know? I mean, does finn know that steffy killed his birth mom?

Steffy: Tell me you understand why. I acted on instinct. I was terrified, finn. I mean, I still am.

Finn: No, look, I am, too. And the– the thought of something happening to you or something happened to the kids–

Steffy: I didn’t know if sheila was going to shoot me. And I– I refused to let her try to destroy our family again.

Finn: So, you plunged a knife into her?

Steffy: No, finn, she lunged at me. How many times do I have to tell you that I reacted? I tried to defend myself. I never wanted this. But I needed to protect myself. I’m so sorry.

Finn: You’re sorry?

Steffy: Yes.

Finn: You’re sorry for killing my mom?

Steffy: What are you doing? Oh, finn, I’m sorry.

Finn: My mom’s blood is on my hand. And yours, steffy.

[ Dramatic music ]

Finn: You sure you’re okay? I– I cannot believe sheila broke in here. Why? I mean, I can, so that what? So did they arrest her? Is that why the cops were driving off? Do they have sheila?

Steffy: Get out of my house!

Sheila: No!

[ Steffy gasps ]

Steffy: No.

Finn: She get– did she get away?

Steffy: No.

Finn: What do you mean? What do you mean, no? If they– if they didn’t arrest her– steffy, where’s sheila?

Steffy: She’s gone, finn. Sheila’s dead.

Brooke: Oh, what a crazy night. I was worried the power might go out.

Hope: I know. The wind is howling out there right now. Uh, speaking of, actually finn said that the power did go out at their house. Oh, I, uh, had to stop by the hospital pharmacy to pick up douglas’s allergy drops and I ran into him there.

Brooke: Okay. How is finn?

Hope: He’s good. He’s good. It was nice to catch up for a little bit. Uh… he is worried about steffy.

Thomas: I added some darting to the bodice.

Ridge: Wow, it’s beautiful. You’re on a roll.

Thomas: Thanks. I’m feeling good. I’m feeling really motivated.

Ridge: Why do you think that is?

Thomas: I think it’s ’cause hope, you know? I’m in love.

Ridge: Love can do that to you.

Thomas: It can. I think we’re starting our own family. It feels really good. I’m happy.

Ridge: Well, if you’re happy, I’m happy. In the end, it’s all about me, right?

Thomas: Right?

Carter: Thank god you guys are still here. I just got a text from my contact at the police department.

Ridge: Police department?

Carter: It’s about sheila.

Brooke: Why is finn worried about steffy?

Hope: Well, I guess it has something to do with sheila.

Brooke: What has she done now?

Hope: Apparently, she and steffy had a confrontation.

Brooke: Again? Steffy better be careful.

Hope: That’s what I said.

Brooke: Sheila is extremely dangerous and steffy knows that. She should stay away from her.

Hope: Well, but how realistic is that when sheila is finn’s birth mother?

Thomas: What about sheila?

Ridge: Tell me she hasn’t hurt somebody else.

Carter: Not that I’m aware of.

Thomas: The cops pick her up for something?

Carter: You can say that. Sheila’s dead.

Finn: Dead? Sheila’s dead. What– what do you mean, sheila’s dead? No, there’s– there’s no way. What?

Steffy: She is finn.

Finn: You’re serious. You’re– are you sure?

Steffy: Yes.

Finn: Uh, wait a second. This doesn’t make any sense. She– she was here and she broke in and now what, she’s dead? What did the… was it the police? Did they, um, did they shoot her?

Steffy: She wasn’t shot, finn.

Finn: Well, then how did it– how did it happen?

Steffy: I don’t know. I don’t know. It just all happened so fast. What did?

Steffy: I had no choice. It was me. I did it. I killed sheila. Kerendia presents…

Brooke: It is true that finn and sheila will always share some kind of connection.

Hope: Well, sheila gave birth to him. So it’s natural that a mother would feel drawn to her child.

Brooke: Yeah, but we’re not talking about any normal person here. We’re talking about sheila carter.

Hope: Mom, I know. And believe me. I mean I– I have zero sympathy for sheila, but it is finn that I, um… I do feel for him.

Brooke: It must be hard being the son of a monster.

Hope: Mom, just when things seem to be going somewhat well, you know steffy gets in another fight with her.

Brooke: I don’t blame her for marching over there and trying to set her straight. She told her to stay away from her children. And what does sheila do? She strikes up a conversation with kelly at il giardino.

Hope: Steffy actually said that she wouldn’t feel safe until sheila was dead. I could tell that it rattled finn a bit.

Brooke: Well, yeah. I mean, what does sheila expect? She did shoot them in cold blood. So, I’m sure steffy is terrified that something like that’s gonna happen again.

Hope: Look, mom, I’m no fan of sheila carter, but I do empathize with finn and his feelings for his own birth mother.

Thomas: Sheila’s dead?

Ridge: Stop it, we just went through this with the whole fake–

Carter: This is coming in right now. My– my contact is saying that the coroner retrieved her body.

Ridge: Where?

Carter: From steffy and finn’s house.

Finn: Wait, no, you don’t mean that. Wait, steffy. Come on. There’S… you’re… oh, my gosh, this is unreal. Okay, so, um– you’re saying that sheila’s dead and you’re responsible?

Steffy: I am.

Finn: Steffy, there’s no– like you couldn’t do something like that.

Steffy: I did.

Finn: I, uh– I– I need to know everything. I need– I need to know exactly what happened

Steffy: Sheila broke in here. She broke in and I– I told her to get out. But she kept coming closer and closer, so I– I grabbed a knife. She lunged at me. I mean I– I had no choice. I had to protect myself.

Finn: So what, like you had to protect yourself how? Like? What did you do, steffy

Steffy: I had no choice but to kill her. It was either her or me. I had no time to think. I just– I– I reacted. I– I had to survive

Finn: So you– you– you stabbed her– you stabbed her?

At dot’s an ordinary pretzel

just isn’t enough.

Ridge: Wait. Sheila died at steffy’s house?

Carter: According to the coroner’s report.

Ridge: Was steffy there?

Carter: I don’t have the details. But he says no one else was injured.

Thomas: Landline isn’t working.

Carter: There was a blackout in malibu.

Ridge: Steffy, it’s your dad. Call me when you can. I wanna make sure you’re okay.

Carter: I’m sure they’re fine.

Ridge: They better be fine.

Carter: The police were just there, something happened we’d know by now.

Thomas: Okay, are they saying how she died?

Carter: No. Yeah, actually. She was killed.

Ridge: She was killed? They used killed? That’s what they said. What’s going on?

Carter: I don’t know.

Thomas: Okay, doesn’t matter. Let’s go.

Ridge: Call us if you hear anything.

Carter: I will.

Brooke: Steffy is not a violent person, so sheila must have provoked her.

Hope: Well, yes, actually finn said that sheila shoved her first and then steffy punched back.

Brooke: It’s unfortunate when arguments become physical.

Hope: Well, what if steffy was coming from a protective place? Even though sheila does work at il giardino, she still shouldn’t be in such close proximity to steffy’s children.

Brooke: I agree. I would have done anything to protect you when you were little and I still would.

Hope: I know you would. And that is what makes us moms so incredible. We would fight to the death if we had to.

Brooke: Well, hopefully it never comes to that.

Hope: Yeah. I don’t know, mom. I just– I feel bad for finn. I mean out of all the moms in the world, he got sheila carter.

Brooke: Well, li is his real mother. She’s the one who raised him.

Hope: And instilled all those incredible values and qualities that we so admire in finn.

Brooke: Sheila is his mother in blood only. The best thing she ever did was to let him go when he was a baby.

Hope: But, did she ever really let him go? I mean, mom, let’s– let’s try to think about it from finn’s perspective. I mean, this is obviously a very complicated thing for him. He doesn’t condone what sheila has done in the past, but at the same time, that is his birth mother. Are we being sensitive to that? Is steffy taking that into consideration before she goes off and does something like that? I don’t know. I just, on some level, I have to imagine that finn feels some sort of connection to sheila.

Finn: So you– you– you stabbed her, you– you stabbed sheila?

Steffy: She was coming at me, finn. I couldn’t– I couldn’t stop. I had to defend myself.

[ Door opens ]

Ridge: Steffy, finn, are you all right?

Steffy: Dad, what are you guys doing here?

Thomas: Hey. We– we heard about sheila.

Ridge: Where are the kids?

Steffy: The kids are fine. They’re not here. They’re safe.

Thomas: Is it true? Is she dead?

Ridge: They said she died here.

Steffy: She broke in.

Ridge: What happened?

Steffy: She broke in. She– she tried to– she tried to attack me. She had something in her– in her pocket, so I grabbed a knife. It was self-defense. I did it in self-defense. Oh… stuffed up again?

Hope: Look, in no way am i excusing sheila for her crime. I mean, not even close.

Brooke: I understand that, sweetie. I mean she’s made all of our lives hell at one point or another.

Hope: Exactly, and she’s never really even faced the consequences for it. She just keeps getting away with it and I’m sure that has to be really frustrating for steffy, but still, at the same time, I…

Brooke: You’re worried about finn.

Hope: Well, I mean, doesn’t everyone want to feel supported by their partner and respected, heard, understood like you’re on the same team and I just don’t know how much it helps finn if steffy is potentially antagonizing sheila.

Brooke: Well, I have to say, steffy did act recklessly by going over and confronting sheila at deacon’S.

Hope: Yes, that’s my point. And finn said, I mean up until sheila was testing the boundaries with kelly at il giardino, that she was keeping her distance. And she actually was respecting the boundaries. But now, I mean, gloves are off. The wound is open. And I just– I don’t know. I just– I– I feel for finn. He’s– he’s a good guy and he can’t help that his mother is sheila carter.

Brooke: That’s something steffy and finn are gonna have to live with for a very long time.

Carter: Good, security said you’re still here.

Brooke: What is it?

Carter: I have shocking news. Sheila’s dead.

Ridge: You must have been terrified.

Thomas: I’m so glad you’re safe. I’m so glad the kids weren’t here.

Steffy: Oh, thank god the kids weren’t here.

Ridge: Well, they’re safe. You’re safe. Everything’s gonna be fine.

Thomas: Yeah, is there anything I can do? Do you want me to call somebody?

Steffy: No, I’m just glad that you’re here.

Ridge: Wanna talk about it? You ready to talk about it?

Steffy: I mean, I’m still in shock. I heard some loud noises. There was a storm and then power went out and I turned around and there was sheila. She was right there and I told her to… get out. You stay away from me. Stay the hell away from me. She kept getting closer. I’ll do it. And closer… she lunged at me.

Sheila: No!

Steffy: And I just reacted.

Thomas: Steff, you had no choice. I’m so sorry. You’ve been going through this.

Ridge: The idea of losing you, I– I– I couldn’t handle that. I’m– I’m so glad you’re okay.

Steffy: Yeah.

Sheila: I love you. I’ve always loved you and I always will.

Thomas: So, what happens now? Talk to the police?

Steffy: The police questioned me. I told them everything. I– I said that I was defending myself. But they’re gonna bring detectives over and– and question me.

Sheila: I know you don’t feel that way, sweetheart, so please, just– just tell her to leave me alone. I just want to live my life. I am not– I am not a threat to you.

Steffy: I was protecting my family. Like I said, you stay away from my family. Yeah, but what if they blame me? What if I’m charged?

Ridge: Then we’ll get carter to get the best attorneys we can. Don’t worry about it now.

Steffy: No, dad, I thought she was gonna shoot me.

Thomas: Right. I thought there was something in her pocket and she lunged at me. I mean, if I didn’t react, I could be dead right now.

Thomas: Exactly. You defended yourself.

Sheila: I’m your mother. I’m your mother. You have made me so proud. I love you so much, baby. I love you more than you could possibly imagine. I’m so happy, my baby boy. I love you.

Steffy: But what if they don’t see it that way?

Ridge: They will, you just said, it’s self-defense.

Sheila: I love you so much.

Ridge: She broke into your house. That animal got what she deserved.

Finn: Animal? That animal was my mother. Sheila was my mother.

[ Ominous music playing]

Steffy: An intruder. She broke into my home. I– I grabbed a knife in self-defense, and when she lunged at me, I– I stabbed her. I think she could be dead. Could you please hurry?

Hope: Oh, there it is.

Finn: Oh, hey. What are you doing?

Hope: I just– I was in the pharmacy. I realized I left my cell phone. It was on silent. Sorry for interrupting again.

Finn: No, you’re not I’m just– I’m trying to wrap up some things and get home to my wife.

Hope: Oh. Is there something else going on?

Finn: I’m worried about steffy.

Deacon: Great choice. Victoria, we’re gonna have a lemon meringue here, a chocolate mousse here. Okay? Thanks. All right, tell me, liam, that this is not the best pizza that you’ve ever had.

Liam: It’s pretty close.

Deacon: Pretty close? Where have you ever had pizza this good?

Liam: Puglia, italy. Hope and my honeymoon. Little pizzeria right outside the hotel.

Deacon: Italy does not count. Stateside, best pizza?

Liam: Okay, stateside?

Deacon: Mm-hmm

Liam: Stateside. You know what else I like?

Deacon: Probably a tofu cannoli.

Liam: Besides the tofu cannoli and the pizza, I like that I don’t have to order takeout ’cause sheila’s not working.

Deacon: All right, I think we’ve established that sheila’s not your favorite person.

Liam: I don’t think she’s anybody’s favorite person, but for one obvious exception.

Deacon: Me.

Liam: Yeah, you. Why you want anything to do with that woman is totally–

Deacon: Okay, can we not do this again?

Liam: Look, you’re concerned and I’m concerned and for good reason. Not only has she been disappearing lately, but you don’t know where she is right now.

Deacon: She’ll turn up.

Liam: It’s not– it’s not whether she’ll turn up that concerns me. It’s where.

Deacon: You’re afraid she’s stalking finn and steffy.

Liam: Yeah, that– that’s exactly what I’m afraid of, and if that’s true, god knows what could happen.

Finn: I– I spoke to steffy after you left. I guess there’s a windstorm out there. All the power’s out at the house.

Hope: Oh.

Liam: Thankfully, the kids aren’t there.

Hope: Well, steffy’s capable. I’m sure she’s okay.

Finn: Yeah, I’m sure she is, but I’ll feel better when I see her for myself.

Hope: It’s sweet that you’re concerned.

Finn: Of course. Steffy’s everything to me.

Medic 1: She’s got a pulse but it’s faint. Barely breathing.

Medic 2: Stab wound. Upper extremity. She’s still bleeding. Apply more pressure.

Medic 1: Keep packing that wound.

Cop 1: What have we got?

Medic 1: Female, mid-50s. Stab wound.

Cop 2: This where you found her?

Medic 1: Yeah.

Cop 1: Ma’am, this your house?

Steffy: Yes. I’m steffy forrester. She broke into my home. She threatened me and I acted in self-defense.

Cop 1: You know this woman?

Steffy: Yes. Her name is sheila. Sheila carter. When enamel is gone, you cannot get it back.

Deacon: You know, if you could just cut sheila a little bit of slack.

Liam: What, I don’t even know what that means. What are you asking me to do?

Deacon: It means not thinking everything she does is nefarious.

Liam: Deacon, you– by your own admission, she’s been sneaking out going on these mysterious outings and not telling you where she’s been or what– like if that’s not a red flag, what is?

Deacon: But see, it’s a red flag for you ’cause you think everything she does is, you know, criminal.

Liam: Yeah. Because she’s given me good reason to. And she’s given steffy good reason to as well.

Deacon: All right, if you’re about to remind me what happened in the alley behind the restaurant–

Liam: Oh, well, I wasn’t going to, but let me remind you what happened in the alley behind the restaurant. Sheila shot finn. And then she turned the gun on steffy and she shot steffy. And she left her for dead. And steffy’s just supposed to like what? Embrace that and allow sheila back into her life? You know we’re talking about my daughter too here, right? Kelly almost grew up without a mother. I’m just supposed to forgive and forget that. I can’t do it.

Deacon: Kelly doesn’t know anything about that.

Liam: Yes. Yes, and hopefully she’ll never have to because we’re gonna get sheila out of our lives once and for all.

Deacon: I don’t think sheila’s going anywhere.

Liam: I’m pretty sure you don’t want her to.

Deacon: Is that so hard to understand, given the way I feel about her?

Liam: No. What’s hard to understand is that you would choose those feelings for sheila over the relationship you have with your daughter.

Deacon: I’m not doing that.

Liam: Really? You’re not doing that? Have you talked to hope lately? Because I bet you she kinda feels like you are.

Deacon: I don’t want to hurt my daughter. That’s the last thing I want to do, but I–

Liam: I know. I know what’s going on. You’re stuck. You’re stuck with sheila. You can’t pry yourself away from her no matter what it’s doing to your relationship.

Deacon: That’s not true. That’s not true at all. Listen, I do not want to lose my connection with my daughter or my grandkids. I love all of them.

Liam: I know you do. The problem is loving sheila, too.

Hope: Oof, no wonder you’re eager to get home.

Finn: Yeah. I hate thinking of her alone ’cause the winds howling outside it’s dark.

Hope: Well, hopefully the power will be restored soon.

Finn: And I’d leave right now, but I’m waiting on some important test results for my patients.

Hope: Hm. How long does something like that take?

Finn: Well, last I spoke to the lab, they said within the next 15 minutes. That was a half an hour ago.

Hope: Well, then, hopefully, they will be here any minute.

Finn: Are you– are you always relentlessly this optimistic?

Hope: Hm. It’s gross, right?

Finn: No, it’s anything but. It’s– it’s refreshing.

Hope: Well, you know what else is refreshing? We just had a conversation, and we did not talk about sheila once.

Finn: Yeah. I’m sorry I brought it up to you when you were here earlier, I just–

Hope: No, don’t be. You’re worried about steffy and things deteriorating even further between the two of them.

Finn: It got physical and that scares me.

Hope: Well, yeah. Knowing what sheila’s capable of. I mean, I know she’s your birth mom, but…

Finn: No, but ever since we found out she is, steffy’s had to put up with so much, and I love that she continues to fight for us, but hasn’t just thrown her hands in the air and called it quits.

Hope: She never would. She loves you too much.

Finn: I love her. And I feel what she feels. Right now, I feel like my wife needs me.

Medic 2: Pupils are fixed, and dilated.

Cop 1: So, you knew the intruder? She wasn’t a stranger?

Steffy: No, her name is sheila carter. She has a long list of crimes, especially against me and my family.

Medic 1: Patient is asystole on the monitor.

Medic 2: She’s bled out. There’s nothing more we can do.

Steffy: Wait, did you say she’s not gonna make it?

Medic 1: Afraid not, ma’am.

Steffy: What?

Medic 2: Time of death, 8:07.

Steffy: Death? Oh, my god. Sheila’s dead. I know what it’s like

Liam: Sheila carter. How does someone love… sheila carter?

Deacon: I know. One of life’s mysteries, huh?

Liam: Yeah, to me, to everyone, especially hope.

Deacon: You know, I tried to explain it to her. H– how do you explain something to somebody when you don’t really understand it yourself?

Liam: You don’t think that tells you something?

Deacon: Tells me it’s complicated. I know how everybody sees her, you know, like some kind of leper to be avoided.

Liam: Whoa. You don’t see her that way?

Deacon: You know, sometimes I wish I did because it’d be a hell of a lot easier. Especially with my relationship with my daughter. You know, I’ve tried to distance myself from her. I have. It’s like every single time I do, I just– I get drawn back in.

Liam: Well, stop that. What’s– what is it? What’s drawing you back in then?

Deacon: Our similarities for one thing. You know, two loners, screw-ups, criminals. Two people trying to scratch some kind of respectability out of life. Trying to just build something together that’s good and decent and normal despite our checkered past.

Liam: Hey, deacon. You– you got to give yourself more credit. You’re painting this picture like you and sheila are the same. You’re not the same. You can’t compare your petty screw-ups to her heinous, heinous crimes.

Deacon: Well, you got that right. She plays in a league by herself, that’s for sure. I don’t know, man, we– we understand each other. You know, we– we accept each other, flaws and all.

Liam: Maybe that would make sense if you didn’t have anybody else in your life who cared about you. But that’s not true. Hope cares about you. She cares about you deeply, and for you to– to let this thing with sheila jeopardize that relationship more than it already has, you– you’re not… you gotta play it smart. You kick sheila to the curb and you save your relationship with your daughter because you know it and I know it. The only way any of us are gonna have any peace ever again is if sheila is out of our lives once and for all.

Finn: Well, the lab results look excellent. It’s exactly what we hoped for. Let’s put them back to the prior dosage and you can tell mr. Limbrecht the good news. Okay, thank you so much, max. Bye-bye.

Hope: You’re a good man, finn. Always taking care of other people.

Finn: Thanks.

Hope: Probably explains how you were able to open yourself up to sheila, crazy birth mom and all. Sorry, if that was overstepping.

Finn: No. My loyalty will always be with steffy. Not that I wish any ill will to sheila, just as long as she stays out of our lives.

Hope: Except that steffy did say that she would only really feel safe if sheila was dead.

Finn: Listen, um, I need to get home, okay? And check on steffy. I’m sure she’s fine. She can take care of herself, but if she needs me, I want to be there for her.

[ Indistinct chatter ]

Cop 1: Got the paramedics’ statements. Coroner’s on his way to collect the body.

[ Camera shutter clicks ]

Steffy: Oh, my gosh, sheila’s dead. Oh, sheila’s dead. Oh, my god.

Cop 1: You said she broke in.

Steffy: Yes. You have to believe me. I acted in self-defense. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

she wished there was a way to

make it last longer.

[ Breathing echoes ]

Cop 1: Let’s go through this again, make sure I have it right.

[ Steffy sighs ]

Steffy: Like I said, the power– the power went out, and I saw a shadow on the wall, and I turned around and– and sheila was there. I– I– I told her I told her to get out and she kept getting closer and closer to me, so I– I– I grabbed– I grabbed a knife. I mean, I was trying to protect myself. She lunged at me. I– I defended myself. I mean this woman has terrorized my family for years. She– she shot me and my husband not that long ago.

Cop 1: You’re saying the deceased tried to kill both of you?

Steffy: She shot her own son.

Cop 2: Wait, your husband’s this woman’s son?

Steffy: She’s his birth mother. She’s a horrible, evil person who should be in prison.

Cop 1: I think we’ll end it here for tonight.

Cop 2: Should we call someone for you?

Steffy: No, my husband will be here soon.

Cop 1: One more thing. Don’t leave town. I’m certain detectives from the department will follow up with further questions.

Liam: Thank you, guys, so much. It was great seeing you again.

Deacon: Okay. You know, there’s a place for a tip right down there.

Liam: All right. Let me make it up to you by giving you a bigger one. Sheila’s only gonna drag you down. She’s gonna force you to forfeit your future with hope and the kids, and that reason alone should make that woman dead to you.

Deacon: Liam, look, it’s not that I don’t hear you. I mean, maybe sheila should be out of my life, and maybe it doesn’t make sense that she isn’T. But I love her, man. And I’m gonna have a long, happy life with her.

Sheila: I’ve made mistakes. I’ve made terrible mistakes. But do I deserve to die? She wants your mother dead. Not behind bars, but dead!

Finn: Steffy? Steffy, I just saw the police driving away. Are you okay? What happened? Honey? Honey, what happened? Why were the police here? Sweetheart, what’s going on? Honey, talk to me. What happened?

Steffy: It was dark. Someone came in. Sheila. You– you stay away from me. You stay the hell away from me. I told you never come back here. Get out. Get out of my house! I’ll do it. I’ll do it! No!

[ Steffy gasps ] It was sheila.

Finn: It was– it was sheila? Steffy, where’s sheila now? Steffy? Steffy, where’s sheila?

[ House creaking ]

[ Suspenseful music ]

Sheila: Tonight, you die, steffy.

Deacon: Have you seen sheila?

Waitress: Like recently?

Deacon: Yeah.

Waitress: No, sorry.

Deacon: Where the hell are you?

Sheila: She attacked me!

Steffy: Do not listen to her.

Sheila: I’ve made mistakes. I’ve made terrible mistakes. But do I deserve to die? Wants me gone. She wants your mother dead. Not behind bars, but dead!

Hope: Is it bad? Whatever you’re working on? Because the expression on your face is…

Finn: Oh, my god. Come in.

Hope: Now a good time to talk? Because it seems like there’s something weighing on you.

Finn: Um, yeah. My wife.

Deacon: Hey.

Liam: Hi.

Deacon: You, uh, here for a drink?

Liam: Uh, takeout. Although, I guess I gotta few minutes ’til it’s ready.

Deacon: Good, take a seat. Drink’s on me.

Liam: Thank you.

Deacon: I just, uh, want you to know there’s no hard feelings, liam. You know, about you and hope. I really do wish you the best.

Liam: Ah, uh, I appreciate that.

Deacon: Good. You wanna stay here and eat?

Liam: Uh, you know, I would. Uh, not a big fan of, uh, dining in here lately. Uh, just because sheila’s your star waitress, you know?

Deacon: Well, you’re not gonna have to worry about that because she’s not here tonight.

Liam: Oh. Weekly psychopath’s anonymous meeting?

Deacon: Actually, I don’t know where she is.

Hope: Something’s going on with steffy. Look, I– I don’t wanna get in the middle, but if, I don’t know, if there’s anything I can do to help.

Finn: Thanks, that’s– that’s– that’s really sweet, but you’re at the hospital. I should be the one helping you. Is everything okay?

Hope: Oh, yeah, I was just, uh, on my way to the hospital pharmacy to pick up some allergy drops for douglas, and I was walking by your door, and you seemed a little intense, so…

Finn: Huh.

Hope: What’s going on? You said it had to do with steffy?

Finn: Yeah, with steffy. And sheila.

[ Rattling ]

[ Wind whistling ] ( )

Hope: Steffy punched sheila.

Finn: Not unprovoked. Sheila shoved steffy first.

Hope: Okay, but sheila shouldn’t be anywhere near the kids.

Finn: I agree. She’s too dangerous. But.

Hope: But?

Finn: I don’t like that steffy confronted sheila.

Hope: Why, because she’s your birth mother, and you don’t feel like it’s steffy’s place?

Finn: It has nothing to do with that. It’s about wanting to know that steffy is safe. That she’s being smart. And getting in sheila’s face and punching her, I mean, how do you think that’s gonna end? I don’t want steffy saying or doing anything to incite her. And look, I am not defending her. She had no right to interact with kelly at all, period. But like it or not, sheila’s been living a pretty peaceful, quiet life. She’s working as a waitress. She’s been staying away. She hasn’t tried to inject herself into my world. It’s– it’s been pretty good. Good considering sheila’s past. So, why poke the bear?

Hope: So, you’re afraid that steffy has overstepped and potentially awoken the sleeping sociopath that is sheila carter?

Liam: Okay. Whoa! I mean, there… no wonder you don’t have any idea where sheila is. She’s probably off somewhere licking her wounds.

Deacon: I never should’ve said a word.

Liam: No, don’t say, no, you absolutely should have. And I’m grateful that you did, because this involves my daughter, deacon. Kelly could’ve gotten hurt.

Deacon: Kelly was never in any danger and steffy had no business getting in sheila’s face like that.

Liam: She had no business? No business? How many times has steffy told sheila, stay away from me, stay away from my family?

Deacon: That’s exactly what she’s doing. She’s just– you know, she’s focusing on other things. She’s focusing on me and our relationship, on this restaurant, her work here. And most importantly, she’s focusing on bettering herself. Look, I don’t expect you to believe it.

Liam: I don’T. I don’t believe it. Nobody believes it. Nobody.

Deacon: It doesn’t matter. You know, I’ve had a front-row seat to watch her progress.

Liam: Okay, all right, how– you– you can buy into the whole sheila’s changed narrative all you want. You just don’t get to expect anybody else to.

Deacon: I don’t expect it, liam, but it’s still true.

Liam: What if you’re wrong? What if you’re sacrificing your relationship with your daughter for a woman who probably doesn’t give a crap about you?

Deacon: That’s not my intention.

Liam: Do you really think that you’re not pushing her away right now?

Deacon: Liam, I love hope and my grandkids.

Liam: Prove it. Do something about it. Kick sheila to the curb, because you’re standing here, and you’re telling me that you don’t know where sheila is five minutes after telling me that she’s new and improved. Obviously, the fact that you don’t know where she is concerns you as much as it concerns me. It’s because you’re worried that she might be reverting back to her old, evil ways. Known for following your dreams.

Liam: I mean, it does worry you, doesn’t it? Not knowing where sheila is right now?

Deacon: What do you want me to say, liam? I mean, she’s a free woman. She can come and go as she pleases. All right, look, uh, the truth is that she’s been slipping away a lot lately.

Liam: I’m sorry, slipping? Slipping away?

Deacon: It used to be that, you know, she would… she’d hang out with me upstairs when it wasn’t her shift, you know? And now it’s like, I go to my apartment, I don’t know if she’s gonna be there or not.

Liam: Okay, do you ask her where she’s been?

Deacon: It’s a bit mysterious.

Liam: Oh, god, it’s not mysterious. She’s probably over at steffy’s house stalking them.

Deacon: No, no, don’t– don’t think that, all right? She has sworn that she wouldn’t bother either one of them.

Liam: Deacon, today. What about today?

Deacon: That was completely different. Kelly came into her space. Steffy, too. And besides, I asked her about her little disappearing acts. And she claims that she has been meeting someone from her past.

Liam: Oh, yeah, no, yeah, no, that tracks. I’m sure plenty of people from sheila’s past have just been clamoring to reconnect.

Deacon: That’s a point well taken.

Liam: The only– the only thing about sheila’s past that she gives a damn about is the child that she gave up. She’s obsessed. Obsessed with being in finn and hayes’ life and with getting steffy out of it.

Hope: So, that’s basically what you’re saying, right? I mean, if steffy provoked sheila, then… you still think she’s a threat.

Finn: I mean, I wish I didn’t, but yeah. I’m not just gonna take her word for it that she’s somehow reformed.

Hope: You shouldn’T. I mean, I don’t buy it. I don’t think she’s capable. She should still be in prison.

Finn: That’s exactly where she should be. And I know how much that angers steffy. Not just for what she’s done to us, but for everything that has happened to her over the years. I mean, my god, losing your mother for most of your childhood because of sheila? That’s traumatic enough. But then to go through what she did in that alley? Seeing me shot, thinking that I’m dead, and then have sheila turn the gun on her? I mean, I’m sure steffy has ptsd from that experience.

Hope: Anyone would. I mean, that’s not something you just get over. But I don’t know, it just seems like there’s something specific about it that’s bothering you.

Finn: Ah, it’s just something else that she said and I’m just, I’m just struggling to understand it.

Hope: Okay. Try me. What did she say?

Finn: Steffy said that the only way that she will ever truly feel free of sheila is if she were dead.

Steffy: [ Whispers ] Sheila? Sheila, is that you? Bombas makes absurdly comfortable underwear.

Finn: Human life is valuable. It’s important. Even for someone as horrible as sheila. Maybe… maybe there is some potential. Not that I want her anywhere around me, but if she spent some time in a prison and maybe had time to repent, I don’t know. But seeing it from steffy’s pspective, yeah, I can see how she thinks that that’s the best solution. And what sheila has done to her is unimaginable.

Hope: You’re a good husband. The fact that you are trying to see it from steffy’s perspective, but at the same time, I can also tell that it… it did disturb you. Steffy saying that about the woman who brought you into this world, I mean, that still hurts to hear. That she wants her dead.

Deacon: I specifically told sheila to stay away from steffy and finn, and I believe her. I believe she heard me. Besides, why would she jeopardize the life that she’s building?

Liam: The life with you?

Deacon: Yeah.

Liam: Deacon, brother. Whatever it is that you’ve got going on with sheila, you and I both know she wouldn’t hesitate for a second to kick it to the curb if it meant having a relationship with her son. That is the single most important thing in her whole life. And guess who she thinks is standing in the way of that right now? Steffy.

[ Cell phone rings ]

Steffy: Hey.

Finn: Hey, I’m, uh, I’m just checking in. I hope you’re relaxing after everything that went down today. Got a warm bath running, about to open a bottle of wine.

Steffy: Quite the opposite, actually. Nothing relaxing about this night.

Finn: What do you mean?

Steffy: The wind’s really picked up after you left.

Finn: Oh, yeah?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, it’s pretty crazy outside. The power went out.

Finn: Oh, what, so you’re in the dark? Did you light some candles?

Steffy: I’m– I’m looking for them right now. I mean, thank god the kids aren’t here. It’s pretty creepy not having any power.

Finn: Nah, I bet.

Steffy: Will you please come home soon? I– I really, really need you right now.

Finn: I won’t be long. I’ll be holding you in my arms.

Steffy: Yeah, sounds like heaven. I love you.

Finn: Love you too.

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: Finn, don’t listen to sheila. She’s trying to play you.

Sheila: No, I am telling the truth. I’m not a danger to you or your family.

Steffy: You’re a liar.

Sheila: What, I’m the threat? She said it to me. She looked me right in the face and said she wished your mother was dead. Finn, son, you know how wrong that is. I have changed.

Finn: Steffy’s right, sheila. You need to stay away from us and our family.

Sheila: So I– I live here, with deacon, and I’m minding my own business, and it’s okay for steffy to come over and punch me in the face whenever she wants and I’m the problem?

Finn: You shoved her first. Okay, you know what, no we’re not– we’re not doing this.

Steffy: No, you’re– you’re never gonna come near me or my family again. Ever.

Finn: Let’s get out of here.

[ Sheila grunting ]

Hope: Hm. Nope, I– I– I still can’t get enough of you.

Thomas: Oh, good, because i can’t get enough of you either.

[ Cell phone rings ]

Thomas: Do you need to check that?

Hope: Yeah, I should, um. Sorry, it’s just an old reminder.

Thomas: An old reminder that makes you sad?

Hope: It’s just an alarm I used to set for myself to remind me to help my dad close up the restaurant. Used to be our bonding time thing that we would do, but those days are long gone now that sheila is lurking around.

Thomas: Hope, I’m sorry you’re missing father-daughter time because of her.

Hope: Me too, but that’s the sad reality. You know, as long as my dad is involved with a psycho, he has to keep his distance from the kids and me.

Deacon: I’m guessing we’re not having sandwiches for dinner. You okay?

Sheila: I have every right to be upset. Steffy comes barging into our home, our home. She verbally attacks me, she punches me in the face, again. Nobody treats me like that and gets away with it.

Steffy: So what? So, we need to pick up the kids?

Finn: No, uh, lucy invited kelly over for dinner and hayes is with grandma li, so…

Steffy: I’m so glad they’re not here.

Finn: Because of your confrontation with sheila.

Steffy: I’m sick and tired of constantly having to look over my shoulder for that sociopath. God, I just– I wish she wasn’t in our lives.

Finn: Is it true what she said? You told sheila you want her dead?

A year after a heart attack,

Hope: I had kind of given up on ever really having a real connection with my father. He wasn’t around much when i was growing up and when he was, it was just… awkward. I mean, I guess I felt some sort of loyalty to my mom and their situation was complicated enough as it is and so I never really truly opened the door to him. But this time, it just– it felt different. It felt like we truly connected and I felt like I found a piece of me that had always been missing.

Thomas: It must have been a wonderful feeling.

Hope: It was. My dad was serious about making a good life for himself, about starting fresh and mending the relationships he had broken and–

Thomas: And you were first on that list.

Hope: And I cherished every moment that we shared together. There were a lot of good moments. A lot of laughter, actually. I know you don’t know my dad that well, but he is a genuinely funny guy. And it just really felt like a blessing to have that father figure in my life, again. But then, sheila came along and yeah, apparently she comes first. Before me, before the grandkids and–

Thomas: I’m sorry, hope.

Hope: Me too. But, um, as long as my dad is involved with sheila, I don’t want to put the kids at risk. And beth and douglas, they have to come first.

Thomas: They do. And deacon’s gonna have to understand that. I just wish I understood him and what he is thinking. Because I don’T. And it just feels like I’m losing my dad all over again.

Deacon: Babe, just breathe, all right? Just relax. Take it down a notch.

Sheila: You know what? I have every right to be upset. I have tried so hard to lead just a simple, good life. I wake up in the morning, I go to work, I come home from work, and I keep a low profile.

Deacon: You have been awesome. You’ve been a model citizen.

Sheila: Yeah, well what a lot of good that’s doing. Because no one wants to give me credit for doing what’s right. No, that doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter that– that I’m here. That– that– that I’m not bothering anyone. Steffy can just barge through that door, do everything she can to keep me away from my son and grandson. I am so done with her. I’m done with her.

Deacon: Okay, sheila, take it easy.

Sheila: Oh, god. Who does she think she is? She– she comes here. She– she belittles me. She strikes me. And I’m just supposed to take it?

Deacon: You have every reason to be angry. She had no business coming at you like that. Listen, don’t make her right. You know why? She’s finn’s wife and he will take her side every time. Think. Be smart. Keep your eye on the prize.

Sheila: I’m trying. I am using all of my strength and self-restraint to not remind that bitch of who she’s dealing with.

Finn: Was sheila lying or did you really tell her that you want her dead?

Steffy: Can you really blame me after all the horrible things she has done to our family? To us? Year after year, it’s like the plague.

Finn: Honey, I understand why you would feel that way.

Steffy: Good. Because I’m not sorry. Sheila should be rotting in a prison cell for the rest of her life. And even then, I don’t even know if I would feel fully free of her. Only if she was dead and buried. And yeah, that’s exactly what I told her. Finn, I understand on some level, this is difficult for you. I get that. Sheila is your birth mother. But evil doesn’t change, okay? It just is. So as long as sheila carter is walking and breathing on this earth, none of us are safe. At dot’s an ordinary pretzel just isn’t enough.

Thomas: You know, I’m not the biggest deacon sharpe fan, but one thing I do know about him is he loves you.

Hope: I would be so happy if it were any other woman. In los angeles. In the world. But it’s– it’s just, my dad deserves happiness, he deserves love, but this is sheila carter we are talking about. A woman with a record. A woman who is dangerous. And I– I–

Thomas: I know. I get it. I do. And I don’t want sheila anywhere near the kids. Or you. Or my sister. Or her kids. I’m just trying to put some perspective on what deacon’s going through. That’s it.

Hope: Hmm… you mean aside from being under sheila’s spell? I don’t know. I– I– I do feel like I was starting to get through to him, though. I could tell he was listening. I could tell that he was taking it in and maybe even making a little bit of progress. But then sheila waltzed in and started in on her usual, “oh, I’ve changed. And I’m not a danger to anyone. I’m not a threat to anyone.” And my dad, he– he buys it.

Thomas: He buys it because he wants to buy it.

Hope: I don’t want him to buy it. And I don’t want to put the kids in that woman’s path. And so, as long as my dad is involved with her, I mean, he can’t be around us.

Deacon: Sheila, I haven’t seen you like this in a long time. Do I need to be worried here?

Sheila: What, I don’t have the right to be upset? Big, bad sheila, she’s not allowed to feel human emotions like everybody else. No, steffy can just barge right in here and slander me and physically assault me, and I– I what?. I’d just– what do I do? Turn the cheek and say, “hey, you missed a spot?”

Deacon: Listen, I get it. I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to have to prove yourself worthy every single day. But the reality is, it is what it is and you have been doing so well. Just don’t give the haters a reason to fear you. That’s all I’m saying.

Sheila: I know. And you’re right. It has not been easy. And it doesn’t matter how good I am or how low a profile I keep, steffy is– is determined to ruin what life I do have. Right, she is never gonna forget the past. She– she won’t move on.

Deacon: I know, just don’t forg the endgame here. All right? Steffy is finn’s wife. If you want to have a relationship–

Sheila: I would already have a relationship with finn if it weren’t for her. Steffy is what’s standing between me and my family. And that’s a position that nobody should ever want to be in.

Finn: I– I gotta get back to the hospital. I still have rounds. Are you gonna– are you gonna be okay here? Alone?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I’ll be fine.

Finn: You sure? ‘Cause look, I– I understand why you want sheila out of our lives, but steffy wishing her dead, that’S…

Steffy: Sheila’s a monster, finn. She shot us. She shot her own son. She left us both to die. And honestly, I think she would do it again if she felt cornered. But I’m not gonna let that happen. Sheila is not gonna harm my family.

Finn: I understand, okay? I get that you’re still traumatized from the shooting. Right, I am too. But look, we’re here, honey. We’re alive. We’re together. Gosh, I– I love you more than anything.

Steffy: I love you too.

Finn: I promise, I will keep you and the kids safe from sheila. Okay? Yeah. ( )

Deacon: I’m kind of in the middle of something right now. Could you take care of it? All right, okay, okay, okay. Okay, I’ll be down in a second. Uh, I have to go down to the restaurant and put a fire out. Not a literal one. Hey, I need you to promise that you’re not gonna do anything to lose your composure and wind up doing something we’re all gonna regret.

Sheila: Not to worry.

Deacon: Yeah… that was a little too easy. Sheila promise me you’re gonna do what finn and steffy want.

Sheila: I promise. I’m not gonna go anywhere near them. I’m not gonna go anywhere near the kids. I’m not gonna go anywhere near the house.

Deacon: Good. I’ll be back soon.

[ Sheila grunting ]

Thomas: You are being so strong. You took a stand with your father about sheila and you’re sticking to it.

Hope: Well, what other choice do I have? I have to do what I can to protect the kids, but it basically is, um, shutting my dad out of my life. Severing the connection that I have yearned for for so long. I mean, just when we were finally getting close. And my dad could rectify all of this if he wanted to. He could– he could choose me for once in his life.

Thomas: If it’s any consolation, I choose you. And I always will. And I’m never gonna let anyone hurt you. Including sheila.

Hope: We can’t underestimate her. We can’t believe a word she says because she is still the same cold, calculating killer that she has always been and she is a danger to us all.

Thomas: I’m sorry.

Deacon: All right, crisis averted. Sheila? Sheila? Oh, please god, no.

Steffy: You’re crazy. Finn needs an ambulance.

Sheila: Steffy, do not make that call.

Sheila: Steffy forrester. Tonight, you die.
