Sheila: Your memory
is coming back.
How long before
you remember everything?
Every sickening detail
of that awful night?
I don’t want to do this,
but I don’t see
any other way.
Hope: Liam, I know you want to be there for steffy.
Liam: Yeah, but it’s not just steffy. It’s– it’s kelly and hayes.
Hope: Of course. Of course. Sweetie, I know you feel like you have to do more. I do too. We’ve all been operating out of this place of fear that hayes and kelly might lose their mother, only, they didn’T. Steffy got lucky. She survived.
Brooke: Steffy is your priority and her well-being comes before everything right now.
Ridge: I haven’t been able to think about anything else.
Brooke: Of course not. What happened to her was tragic. She lost her husband. And she’s going to need her father. She’s gonna need all your support, and I want to be there to help. I am still your wife. I just can’t spend another night without you.
Ridge: As long as steffy is here, this is where I need to be.
Brooke: Yes, of course. But she is getting better. I’m sure it won’t be much longer before she can come home.
Ridge: I hope you’re right. When she is home, she’s gonna need all my care and attention.
Brooke: Mm-hm. She will. And we can all be there for her, support her, even hope and liam. We’ll all be there for the children and for steffy. But, you and I have been apart too long, ridge. I need you to come home. Please, don’t go back to steffy’s with taylor.
Hope: Taylor, hi.
Hope: How’s steffy doing?
Taylor: She’s resting.
Liam: It’s been a hell of a day.
Taylor: My daughter has a lot more of those ahead of her, I’m afraid.
Liam: It’s just so much for her to process right now.
Taylor: It’s an overwhelming amount. Suddenly finding out about finn’s death and realizing she’ll have to raise her son without his father. It all just happened so fast.
Liam: You… you said that steffy’s still resting?
Taylor: Yes. Thankfully.
Liam: I think I’m gonna go check on her.
Hope: Is everything okay?
Liam: Yeah. I– I’m getting a– I’m sure it’s nothing, I just, um… I– I won’t wake her if she’s sleeping. I’ll be back.
Sheila: Why? Why do you
force me to do these things?
I don’t want to hurt you.
I don’t– I don’t want to
be this person.
I was going to be better
But you robbed me of
that chance. And now,
there’s only one way out
of this for both of us.
With your past, they’re just
going to think you got your
hands on more meds somehow.
Liam: Sheila? What, uh… what are you doing? This is the sound of nature breathing.
Brooke: Steffy and finn will never get another day together as husband and wife.
Ridge: It’s not right. It’s so unfair.
Brooke: It’s terrible. Finn’s never going to come home to his wife.
[ Ridge sighing ] But you can.
Ridge: Stop, you– I understand what you’re saying. What happened here just turned everything upside down.
Brooke: I know. It made me realize that I can’t live with this gulf between us for one more day. Life is too short, ridge. Our life together, it’s too precious.
Ridge: I know. And I’m– and I’m so glad that you’re here and that you’re– your suppor means a lot, it does.
Brooke: Of course. There’s nowhere I’d rather be. I wanna be right by your side, and I know that now more than ever. I really wanna fix this. I don’t know what I need to do or say to get you to agree to work on our marriage together. I just– I miss you and I want you back.
Ridge: Okay. I miss you. I do. And I thought our marriage was solid, that we were in a good place.
Brooke: Yeah. We were.
Ridge: We were.
Brooke: I’m sorry. I’m sorry–
Ridge: No, stop, no. I’m not asking you to apologize for what deacon or new year’s or anything. We will have this conversation. We will. But not now, I’m– I’M… I’ve got to focus on my daughter. I gotta make sure she recovers completely, okay?
Hope: Um, don’t let me keep you, if you want to check in on steffy.
Taylor: Oh, no, no. I’ll give liam a moment. How are you?
Hope: I’m– I’m trying to stay positive. You know, help out where I can. Support liam. Look after the kids.
Taylor: Mm. I can’t thank you enough for that.
Hope: Happy to do it.
Taylor: You know, it’s amazing how much a crisis like this can bring people together.
Hope: Well, um, steffy’s very important to liam. They share a child together, so.
Taylor: Yeah, they share so many happy memories and such a– such a wonderful history. Steffy’s gonna need a lot of support from people she can rely on, people that she trusts. Like liam.
Liam: What were you doing though? You should not be in here.
Sheila: I was just checking on her. Checking on what? You’re not family and you’re not on the medical team.
Sheila: I am a nurse.
Liam: You’re not her nurse.
Sheila: You– you act like I don’t care. Like this shouldn’t be affecting me, but it does, more than you know.
Liam: I get it. I know. This is a very emotional time for you, but you are not involved in her treatment.
Sheila: I don’t expect you to understand, but I am deeply invested in steffy’s recovery.
Liam: Because you think she might know what happened to your son?
Liam: Ask the family how she’s doing and let the doctors do their job. This– this is not– you’re–
Sheila: You have no idea what this is doing to me.
Sheila: No, you don’T. I come to this hospital everyday and I’m the outsider looking in, and pacing these hallways, just waiting for something to happen.
Liam: I can imagine how frustrating that is.
Sheila: I don’t think you can. I wanted to do something for steffy. Now that she’s getting stronger, she’s starting to remember things.
[ Steffy grunting ]
Liam: Yeah, hi. Hi. It’s, uh, we didn’t mean to wake you up.
Steffy: You again. For people who are a little intense about hydration.
Taylor: Moving forward will take time. This is going to be incredibly difficult for steffy and the children. We have to be patient.
Hope: But we also have to be realistic. She’s going to need all of our support because you’re right, it is going to be incredibly difficult and she’s already starting to remember and eventually, she… will remember all those awful details about that night.
Taylor: That’s why I’m just so happy that liam has promised to be there for her.
Ridge: Hey. Everything all right? Is there any news?
Taylor: No, um, bridget hasn’t given us an update.
Hope: Liam just went in to see steffy.
Taylor: Yeah, I was just telling hope how wonderful it is that liam still cares so much for our daughter.
Steffy: What is she doing here?
> Liam: As far as I know, she was just leaving.
Sheila: I can go.
Steffy: No. Finn. You lost him too.
[ Sheila sighing ]
Sheila: Yeah, but we– we don’t have to talk about that.
Steffy: We’re both grieving. He was my husband. Your son. We share this, but it doesn’t make us friends.
Sheila: If you could’ve just given me a chance, steffy, things could’ve been so different.
Liam: Okay, we’re not gonna– we’re not gonna do that. We’re not gonna play the “what if” game because that’s not healthy and frankly, steffy does not owe you that.
Sheila: Okay, you know what? You’re right. Because it doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t change the past. We just have to figure out how to go forward from here, so… I’m gonna leave. I’m sure the two of you want to be alone. But I will be back. I have to put an end to this. Steffy can never remember the truth about finn’s death.
Sheila: Damn liam for interrupting. I could’ve put an end to this once and for all.
Taylor: Sheila, hi. Are you okay?
Sheila: Taylor, I am… I’m just feeling a little helpless right now.
Taylor: That’s understandable. Hey, is there anything I can do.
Sheila: No, no, no.
Taylor: Okay. I realize this– this must be torture for you.
Sheila: Oh, it… it just… it keeps getting worse and worse.
Taylor: Sheila, I– I know that there’s– there’s nothing that anybody can do or say to bring finn back, but I assure you, the truth will come out. Hey. They will find who did this to your son and my daughter.
Brooke: So, what were you and taylor talking about? Steffy’s memory problems?
Hope: Yes, if she’s ready to face what happened. Though, I’m not sure her mother really is.
Brooke: She mentioned liam and how said how much he still cares about steffy. You don’t think she was insinuating that they should be together?
Hope: I don’t want to believe that.
Brooke: But, you got a feeling.
Hope: Well– mom, steffy suffered a terrible loss. One that’s going to impact the family for years to come and she needs a lot of support right now. So, I think maybe taylor is just trying to find anything to help.
Brooke: Really hate to say this about taylor, but I don’t trust her. How many times has she assured me that she didn’t come back to L.A. For ridge? And yet, she’s with ridge. And now that finn is gone, I’m sure she’s gonna want steffy and liam to reunite.
Hope: All right, mom, I know you’re trying to support, but you’re really not helping me so I’m going to go find liam now. Okay? I love you.
Liam: Sheila was already in here when I showed up. But maybe I can ask and see if there’s a way to keep her out.
Steffy: Sheila’s been here the whole time?
Liam: Yeah, pretty much. Which is weird, right?
Steffy: Maybe she wanted to… feel closer to finn. She’s grieving too. The way he died… it must’ve been so awful that I… I blocked it out. I blocked out finn, our… our life. Our son.
Liam: Steffy, listen. You– you were shot, right? You were actually shot and you were unconscious for a long time. It is a miracle that you remembered anything at all when you came to.
Steffy: I just want–
Liam: And sheila, I’m sure you’re right that she is grieving, but that’s not the point. The point is if you don’t want her here, she doesn’t get to be here.
Steffy: I just want to go home, liam.
Liam: I know.
Steffy: I want to be with my children.
Liam: I know, and you’re well on your way to that, I promise.
Steffy: I miss my babies. I don’t know how this is going to affect them. Affect all of us. Like, how am I going to explain this? Who took finn away? Why?
Liam: I don’t– I don’t know, but you’re not going to do it alone. You’re not going to do any of this alone.
Steffy: Finn’s gone. My family’s been destroyed.
Liam: Your family has not been destroyed. Your family will live on just like finn’s memory will live on. In your memories, in stories when you tell hayes about his father. In kelly’s memories of the time they shared together. Think of all the walks on the beach and the trips to the park.
Steffy : Yeah, kelly gets to do that with her father. Hayes doesn’t get that chance.
Liam: Hayes– hayes is still– hayes is part of us, right? He gets to come along anytime he wants and so do you. I know that it’s impossible to imagine a life without finn, but I also know that you’re going to do it because that is who you are. That’s what you do. You’re just– you are just a survivor and that is a fact about you. I mean, steffy, you have so many people you can count on, including me.
Steffy: What about hope?
Liam: You can count on hope too.
Steffy: That’s not what I meant.
Liam: Hope… that– that’s just not something you need to be worrying about right now. I’m– I’m always going to be there for you, and that– that has to be an anchor point. Yes, I’m married to hope, but you’re still always gonna be a huge part of my heart and I’ll be damned if I let you go through this alone. I’m not going to, ever.
