Steffy: Sheila, you can’t lie your way out of what I saw with my very own eyes. You and thomas in the alley, behind il giardino. Now what possible reason is there for that? Answer me! What were you doing with my brother?
Ridge: Well, that came out of nowhere.
Thomas: Out of nowhere? What? I want you to be happy. What’s strange about that?
Ridge: Nothing, you said it’s your turn to look out for me. What does that mean?
Eric: This is a precarious situation for you and you’re scared. I get it. You have a right to be. But you and ridge have been through worse than this. You have. I can’t believe this is the end.
Brooke: I certainly hope you’re right, eric. Ridge and I have been through so much, and it just can’t end this way. It can’T.
Brooke: How am I in a place where I could lose my husband over deacon? And this is a man I don’t care about, except that we share a child together. And if it weren’t for hope, he wouldn’t be in my life. I mean, he hasn’t been for years.
Eric: I know. Look, brooke, we cannot change the things that have happened. We can’t, but what we can have an influence on– on the future of things that are going to happen. Look, you love ridge and he loves you. He always will. He always has. Now, as long as one person believes in a relationship, as long as one person fights for it, it won’t be over.
Thomas: You, uh, you deserve to be happy, right? And– and if there’s any way i can contribute to that, I will, I mean, I owe you that.
Ridge: You owe me that because I’m your dad? And I– I did that for free.
Thomas: No, I– I know. Um– look, it’s just– look brooke’s hurt you in the past, but you also still care about her very much. But I know that you also care about mom and I see you guys together and you have this amazing bond and a calming effect on each other.
Ridge: I know what you’re saying. Brooke, let me down and– and I’d be better off with your mother.
Sheila: I’m not really sure what you’re getting at. Thomas and me?
Steffy: Don’t even try, sheila, I saw you. What possible explanation do you have for holding some kind of secret meeting with my brother?
Sheila: You make it sound like it– it’s so dramatic.
Steffy: Stop dodging.
Sheila: Did you ask thomas?
Steffy: I’m asking you. I want answers now. For copd,
Eric: Don’t lose track of what’s between you. It’s stronger than what you’re facing right now. You got to stay the course.
Brooke: I broke it. I’ve got to fix it.
Eric: You broke it, you got to fix it, that’s right.
Brooke: Okay, okay, I’m willing to do whatever it takes to keep my marriage together. It’s just hard. He’s over there living at steffy’s, and I just feel like steffy and thomas and taylor– they’re just– whether it’s intentional or not, they’re doing whatever they can to pull him away from me.
Eric: Well, don’t get don’t get thrown off by that. Don’t let that bother you. All right? Just believe that you’re going to be back together.
Brooke: I just can’t believe this is happening. We were so happy, I mean, we’d wake up every morning, thrilled to be together, happy that all of our problems were behind us and they were, until I did what I did.
Eric: Yeah well, you weren’t yourself that night.
Brooke: Yeah. Well, then who was I? Who was that stupid woman that sacrificed everything and for what? I just feel like there’s something– something more.
Brooke: I just feel like there’s this outside force that is doing whatever it possibly can to keep ridge and me apart.
Taylor: Okay, that’s enough. Enough with this whole parent trap thing. Okay?
Thomas: Who me?
Taylor: Yes, you. I– I heard your father when I walked in, he said, “I think you want me to be with your mother.”
Thomas: Yes. So sue me. I do. Yes, I’ve been honest about that. I want you guys together. Sure.
Taylor: But that is our decision to make, if and when we decide to make that decision, and we don’t need our children jumping in and trying to make that decision for us. Thank you.
Ridge: You know, we’ve been grown-ups a long time.
Taylor: Yeah, I mean, we’ve, we’ve been trying anyway.
Ridge: You’ve been trying.
Taylor: You’ve been trying. Just– just ease up, okay?
Ridge: Or maybe just let him do what he’s doing because there are worse things in life than spending time with you.
Taylor: Well, that’s really sweet. See, romance isn’t dead. There are worse things.
Ridge: Still got it. I, um– I have a video call to make, so I gotta try and figure that out. Keep an eye on him.
Thomas: All right. Uh, so obviously, I was right, I was dead on.
Taylor: About what?
Thomas: About you and dad, you’re perfect for each other. Come on, don’t try and deny it.
Taylor: You know, it’s really funny. There– you’re not the only one who thinks that ridge and I belong together.
Thomas: Well, yeah. Steffy has been by my side on this the whole time.
Taylor: Well, yes, your sister has definitely made it abundantly clear what her position is, but no, someone else. Someone, someone unexpected.
Sheila: Okay, ya caught me, so you saw me with thomas, so it doesn’t make any sense to say you didn’T.
Steffy: Lying, you mean? That’s good, at least we’re making progress. So why were you having a private conversation with my brother?
Sheila: Is that really so hard to understand? You and your family are extremely important to me, finn is my son, the father to your son. Hayes is– is my flesh and blood, it’s my bloodline.
Steffy: Don’t remind me.
Sheila: Well, you might not like it, but it doesn’t change the fact, hayes is my grandson. You– you might want to try to wish that away, I wish that you wouldn’T. I wish you’d accept me for the woman that I am today, or– or at least give me an opportunity to prove that to you the way that your mother has. There’s only one thing I want in this entire world, and that is to have a life with finn and hayes.
Steffy: And where exactly does thomas fit in?
Sheila: Thomas has influence over you, and I thought that if– if I could show him that– that I really am good, that he’d have a chance at convincing you.
Steffy: He can’T.
Sheila: Then I’ll find another way because I won’t give up on my family. And that’s exactly what you are, steffy. I get choked up even thinking about it, family. I finally belong to one. I love you all so very much.
Steffy: And that scares me more than anything. Hi, I’m karen.
Ridge: No, you’re right, that’s what we’ll do. All right, good work.
[ Computer dinging ]
Steffy: This feels right. We feel like a family again.
Ridge: Oh, you remember what your mom used to say? It’s not a family moment–
All: Without a family hug.
Thomas: Right, right.
Brooke: I love you and I miss you. So just please, please come home.
[ Door clicking ]
Brooke: Hi. I had to see you.
Ridge: I’m glad you’re here.
Thomas: Okay, so you’ve been talking to sheila.
Taylor: Well, I’ve been– I’ve been listening, she talks.
Thomas: Okay, so… um, how did this happen?
Taylor: Well, you know, I–I told you that sheila’s been coming by the office, it’s just been happening more frequently.
Thomas: For how long?
Taylor: Since I got my new office? Look, I think she just– she wants an ally in her campaign, so that finn and hayes will be in her life, and– and she knows how much that I want to believe she’s changed and I think she’s trying to prove it to me.
Thomas: Yeah, mom, I don’t like the idea of you being alone with sheila.
Taylor: Oh honey, I got it. It’s okay. I mean, I– she’s a fascinating case study. She really is.
Thomas: A serial killer is a great case study, but you don’t put yourselves in a cage with them, like–
Taylor: Honey, this is my job. It’s– it’s pretty interesting to watch her wheels turning all the time. Good or evil? That’s– that’s the question. You know?
Thomas: Yeah, as it is with psychopaths, okay, um. You said that that she likes the idea of you being with dad?
Taylor: She thinks that ridge and I belong together, and she doesn’t think that brooke deserves ridge. But I– I think that it’s her animosity towards brooke that’s fueling all of this. I told her to keep that in check and not to lash out. I also told her that no matter where we are with brooke, whether we’re at odds or not, that we will stand behind brooke against sheila any day of the week. I think she understands that, I hope she does.
Sheila: Steffy, the last thing I want to do is scare you, you’re my daughter-in-law.
Steffy: Do not touch me.
Sheila: I love you. Your entire family.
Steffy: Oh my god, I don’t wanna hear it anymore, you’re never going to be welcome in my family.
Sheila: Look, I realize that I have a ways to prove myself, but I will. I’ll earn a place in finn and hayes’ lives. You know, I–I really look forward to the day that that you trust me enough that maybe I could even take my grandson to the park or the beach.
Steffy: Are you delusional? You’re never gonna be alone with my son.
Sheila: Well, you may feel that way right now, but I’m going to work on that and– you know, I’m going to work hard and put in the time so that you feel comfortable having me around.
Steffy: I’m never going to feel comfortable. So you might as well make your way back to genoa city.
Sheila: Do you see this? This is proof. Proof that I’ve changed. And the old me would have been insulted ten minutes ago and lashed out at you, but no, here I stand with an open heart willing to take whatever you dish out so that I can– I can be accepted in the family that I am a part of. Steffy, I’m an asset to you. You have no idea the friend that I’ve already been to you and your mother.
Steffy: You’re never going to be a friend, sheila. If you want to do something, you can stay away. From me, finn, thomas, my son. My mother. Just stay the hell away.
Sheila: If only you knew what I have done! Ooh, you would be a lot nicer to me, steffy. S and you being in that big house all alone. And everything tha
Ridge: You know, I’ve been thinking about you. I’ve been thinking about us. And everything that’s happened and how bad this timing is. Everything that you’re going through and– and me being at steffy’s and you being in that big house all alone. I’m– I’m concerned about you, I want you to be okay.
Brooke: I want us to be okay and I wanted to try to fix the mistake that I made, and instead of doing that, I ended up making another mistake. The gift that keeps on giving, I guess,
Ridge: What do you– what do you– I don’t–
Brooke: Well, I, um, I told you that you could have a divorce, which is not what I want, ridge. I was just saying that because I thought maybe that was something that would make you happy, but you know what? I take it all back. I do. I take it all back. I don’t want that. I want you to come home, come on, you are my husband. And that’s where you belong. You don’t have to stay in the bedroom, you can stay in the guest wing, but I need you home with me to work this out. It’s– it’s important.
Ridge: It’s important– what do you mean?
Brooke: It’s important, ridge, because I– I take full responsibility. I do, for everything that I did, but I just feel there’s something else. I can’t explain it. I just I feel like there’s this outside force that– that’s trying to tear us apart and we can’t let that happen. This can’t be our fate.

Thomas: Hey, you can’t call me whenever you feel like it. All right? I’m at work. You know, forrester creations, named forrester like ridge forrester, someone who cannot know about the secret we’re keeping.
Sheila: There’s something that you need to know.
Thomas: Um– I’m on a call. What’s up?
Man: Sorry, I thought carter was in here.
Thomas: No worries.
Man: Any idea where I might find him?
Thomas: He actually stepped off campus for a meeting. Anything else?
Man: Nope, I’m good.
Thomas: Okay. Yes. I’m back.
Sheila: I have a very unpleasant visit today.
Thomas: Yeah, well, I’ve had a rather unpleasant couple of days, at least, keeping your secret. It’s weighing on me, sheila. This doesn’t feel right.
Thomas: No, sheila, you listen to me. I don’t think that keeping this secret is the right move.
Sheila: Oh, so you suffer a little, but, you remember why you’re doing this, to clear a way for a future between taylor and ridge. Your parents can be together again, and I know that that’s something that you and steffy have wanted for a very long time.
Thomas: Yeah, look, I’m not going to deny it. Obviously, I want my parents together, they’re perfect for each other. Every time that they’re in the room, they light each other’s lives.
Sheila: Yeah, well, they have a real chance. At a life together that brooke took away from them, all you have to do is stay quiet and just let things play out.
Thomas: You know, before i found out about what really happened, I thought, “there’s no way my parents don’t end up together.” But after what you did to brooke, it was evil, it was disgusting, diabolical. You made brooke think that she was drinking nonalcoholic champagne, you switched to bottle labels. She was drinking real booze, which led her to then drinking vodka, which led her to making out with deacon, and spending the night. Brooke has a disease. She’s an alcoholic, okay? She didn’t drink on her own. You sabotaged her. You poisoned her. And that kiss with deacon, that never would have happened, if she hadn’t been drinking. You were pulling all the strings.
Sheila: Am I supposed to feel sorry?
Thomas: Brooke has been in a living hell. She still has no idea what possessed her to drink that night. It was you, manipulating everyone and you expect me to keep this secret? You’re the one tearing apart my father’s marriage, so you can try and have a place in steffy and finn’s lives.
