[ Dramatic music]

Hope: Look, I’m still upset with thomas. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to trust him again.

Steffy: Not personally. But would you be able to trust him with your line?

Hope: Well maybe I have to. You know, maybe hope for the future does need him.

[ Elevator dinging ]

Steffy: What are you suggesting? Have you actually thought this through? Could you really work with thomas again?

Sheila: Finn! Sweetheart, hi!

Finn: Don’t with the “hey sweetheart”. All right, that is not what we’re doing here. Ever.

Sheila: It’s just really good to see, you.

Finn: I wish I could say the same. But who knows? Maybe someday.

Sheila: Okay, really?

Finn: Sure. The day I see you behind bars.

Sheila: I love you so much, bill. I’m yours for life.

[ Door unlatching ]

Katie: The guard said you were up here alone. Does that mean you’ve kicked sheila out? Suppose that was too much to hope for. I’m here because I care about you, bill. And I’m worried about you. More worried than I’ve ever been.

Paris: Back so soon?

Thomas: Yeah, I didn’t want to get caught listening in.

Paris: Any news? Are they letting you design again?

Thomas: It’s too soon to say, but I think there might be a chance.

Paris: Yeah?

Thomas: I mean, I can feel it. I think I might actually be back on hope for the future. Possibly as soon as today.

Steffy: You’re worried about your line. Frankly, I am too. But is it worth lobbying for thomas to return?

Hope: That’s not what I’m doing. I– I’m just trying to look at all the options, not only for the good of my line, but also for the company. Now, if we were to consider letting thomas work remotely so he didn’t have to come on site–

Steffy: On site or not, think about everything thomas has done.

Hope: No, I know, I just– I’m thinking out loud.

Steffy: Look, hope for the future is important to you. But is it worth compromising your values? Because forcing yourself to work with thomas? That’s exactly what it feels like you’d be doing.

Sheila: All right. That was hard for me to hear. But I understand it. Does it upset you to run into me here?

Finn: No, this was no accident. Sheila, I knew you were here. I got word from a friend who spotted you. I dropped what I was doing and I rushed right over.

Sheila: To come see your mother.

Finn: No, to tell you, in no uncertain terms, that you will never have anything to do with me and my family.

Bill: You don’t have to worry about me.

Katie: Well, I must admit it’s a new feeling for me. Being worried about you. I’ve never felt that way before. You’ve always been so self-assured, so… in control of every situation, at least that’s how it appeared. But now, you and sheila. I’m frightened for you, bill. I’m frightened for our son and I am here to do whatever it takes to get through to you. To save you from this unhealthy, dangerous situation. Some people are born to hustle.

Paris: So this could really be happening.

Thomas: Excited?

Paris: Well, I know how much this means to you and I know how sorry you are for what you did. And, come on, there is no line without your designs. Hope’s vision can only go so far and she clearly knows that or she wouldn’t be considering putting you back on.

Thomas: I like the way you think.

Charlie: You are not supposed to be in the building, thomas. Orders from the head honcho.

Thomas: Uh, orders changed. Steffy’s actually–

Charlie: Not that head honcho, the other head honcho. Your father. And until I hear otherwise, you’re not welcome.

Thomas: My name is on the side of the building. I think that gives me certain rights–

Charlie: You know, your name might be on the side of the building, but if you don’t do what I say, your name is gonna be on an orange jumpsuit, mr. Forrester. Now am-scray. Pronto.

Steffy: Think about it. My dad and your mom aren’t together because of what thomas did. He framed brooke. Made it seem that like she called cps on him. You’re thinking that is someone you might want to work with again? Okay, let’s say– let’s say thomas does come back and hope for the future is a huge success. Are you honestly gonna feel good about that?

Hope: You do have a point there.

Steffy: Have you talked to your mom about this? Liam? I mean, we both know how he feels about thomas. Think about what this could do to your marriage.

Hope: No, you’re right. You’re right. I– I can’t believe I was even contemplating this. I mean, I– I can’t, I can’t do that. I can’t work with him. Thank you. Thank you, seriously. And, um, I apologize.

Steffy: For what?

Hope: For just… I don’t know, taking up your time with– with all of my concerns about my line when I know you have much, much bigger things on your plate. I mean, what thomas did, his lies and manipulations, I mean that kind of pales in comparison to the threat of sheila.

Sheila: We have an opportunity here for a second chance thanks to bill spencer, so, please, let’s not waste it.

Finn: A second chance?

Sheila: To start over.

Finn: I don’t want to see you. I don’t want to know you’re alive. You just stay away from me, my wife, and our children. Just stay the hell away. =

Bill: You call it unhealthy, dangerous, but you don’t see when it’s just the two of us. The attention she gives me, the affection.

Katie: What I see is a man standing in front of me who is unrecognizable. You’ve been hurt. You feel rejected. I… I understand that. I know what it’s like to feel lonely, maybe better than anyone. But what I don’t understand, what I don’t get is why you can’t see that you’re being played? You are dollar bill spencer and you’re believing all of sheila’s lies.

Bill: What lies has she told? I know all of her sins and she knows mine.

Katie: This is not you, bill. The bill I know, the man I admire, would realize what she’s doing. He would never allow himself to fall for this con. But you don’t see it. And I don’t understand why. Why can’t you see that sheila carter is playing you?

Introducing astepro allergy.

Charlie: One of us isn’t listening and it’s you. You need to go.

Thomas: Right, I’m just waiting on word from–

Charlie: You want me to call back up? I don’t think you want that because ruth is on duty today and ruth is a rottweiler.

Thomas: Uh, charlie, I– I– just let this slide this one time, okay? Steffy is literally about–

Charlie: I got a situation on the executive floor. I’ve got a combatant that is unwilling to leave–

Thomas: Okay, all right, fine, fine, fine. I get it. I’ll leave, I’ll leave. This is ridiculous though.

Charlie: You know, um, following the rules is never ridiculous, my friend.

Thomas: I didn’t want to tell you this, but actually this is a code 519-B. It’s

[ French accent ] “Top secret,” course is french for “top secret”. Shh. Don’t say anything.

Charlie: That’s not a 519-B.

Steffy: Well, there’s one nice thing we can say about thomas. At least he isn’t as bad as sheila.

Hope: I still can’t believe that she’s free, that a judge would let a woman like that go. How are you feeling about all this? Knowing that she was out there somewhere and that your mom is being blackmailed?

Steffy: Can’t say it’s easy. My mother’s future is at stake. Her freedom. It’s all in sheila and bill’s hands.

Sheila: As much as I wish you had more of an open mind about me and what our relationship could be, I– I understand why you’re hesitant.

Finn: I am not being hesitant, sheila. I’m telling you no. It will never happen.

Sheila: We’ll have to see, won’t we? See, you are my son and I am not gonna give up on you. I never give up. With the right amount of patience and confidence, I can accomplish anything that I put my mind to.

Katie: Sheila doesn’t know how to love. Her heart is a cold, dark place.

Bill: Maybe mine is, too.

Katie: No. No way. You can’t say that to me because I have felt your love. I’ve witnessed it. You can’t sell me that. This is not you. This is not who you are. You’ve been hurt. I hurt you. But for you to turn to a fugitive?

[ Katie sighing ] I’m so sorry if my rejection played any part in this. I’m so sorry. I just never dreamed that you would– I hurt you and I will regret it for the rest of my life. I’m so, so sorry. I have moderate to severe crohn’s disease.

Steffy: You have no idea the nightmare it is being at sheila’s mercy. Sheila’s just walking around. She’s a threat to everyone, but especially my family.

Hope: I– I can only imagine. Having your mother’s freedom in her hands and bill’s?

Steffy: I don’t even know bill anymore. He seems like a completely different person.

Hope: I know. Liam is really worried about him.

Steffy: I don’t want to believe that sheila completely corrupted him. I have to hold on to hope that somehow, some way, someone, is gonna get through to him.

Katie: What does this look like going forward? What’s your plan? How do you envision this future with– with a woman who has tried to kill so many people you care about? I mean, are– are we just gonna invite her to family functions? We’re gonna sit around the thanksgiving table and– and break bread with her? Wh– what happens when– when will gets married? Are you gonna show up at his wedding with this murderer on your arm? How do we explain this to our son?

Bill: “Your father found someone. Someone who cares about him.”

Katie: Someone he will never, ever meet. You know that right? I cannot allow will to be around you if you are with sheila. And that’s not a threat, that’s just a fact. I will protect my son. And I don’t want to keep him away from you, bill. I love the bond that you have. I– I know you love all of your boys, but… but will. Will is yours. You raised him and he loves you so much. And the relationship you have with him, it’s– it’s special and unique and it makes me so happy. I don’t want you to feel attacked, okay? This is not– this is not me attacking you. I know that– that that’s the way you felt since this whole thing started. And you don’t need that anymore. What you need, what you need to hear is that you have people in your life who love you and who care about you. Like me. Please don’t do this. Please, please don’t bring this woman into our lives. Don’t let her anywhere near our son.

Bill: What do you mean, our lives? You turned your back on me, katie. We made a pledge. A pledge that we would raise our son together. That’s what I wanted for us.

Katie: You wanted brooke. That was the problem. I hurt you. And you hurt me. We’ve hurt each other over and over again. I– maybe too many times. But this– this is beyond hurt. This is– this is despair. Knowing that you’re with sheila, it– it’s killing me.

Bill: I’m sorry, katie. I’m sorry for everything I’ve done. For all the times I hurt you. You were right and I was wrong. But does it have to mean the end of us forever? You, me, and will?

Katie: If you’re with sheila, then yes. It is the end of our family. But if she were to go back to prison–

Bill: What are you saying? That you would take me back? If sheila goes to prison, that you would forgive me? That our family could be one again?

Thomas: Look, I am asking you for a favor. You’re a businesswoman and a damn good one at that.

Steffy: Flattery. Really, thomas?

Thomas: Okay. Look, I will be on my best behavior from now on. I promise. The straight and narrow. Steff, I realize I went too far trying to get mom and dad back together, okay? And I even get it if people don’t wanna see me around the office, but I can still contribute. I can save hope for the future.

Hope: You’re asking if I want thomas back on my line?

Paris: Is it something you’d consider?

Hope: Well, should I? Considering that he torpedoed my mother’s marriage and pressured our son into keeping it a secret.

Paris: Thomas also designed the most successful collection hope for the future’s ever produced. I know what that means in this business. I was wondering what it means to you.

Finn: I might have something in here. There. Think this will help your patients feel better?

Kelly: Yes.

Douglas: That’s so cool. Are they real?

Finn: Yeah. Here’s one for you, dr. Spencer. There you go. And one for you, dr. Forrester. Oh, here, try that side.

Douglas: Wow. My heartbeat’s so loud.

Finn: Well, that’s no surprise. Everyone knows you have a good heart, douglas.

[ Knock on the door ]

Finn: Hey!

Liam: Hey.

Kelly: Daddy, look.

Liam: What? What is the– what is the what– what– what’s going on here?

Douglas: Some of kelly’s dolls aren’t feeling well.

Finn: Mm-hmm.

Kelly: I am a doctor.

Liam: Ah, wait a minute. Wait. When I called earlier, you were a chef.

Finn: Yeah. Kelly and douglas made pizza crackers.

Liam: Oh my god. Do you know something? Do you know I love pizza crackers? You’re gonna have to make me some when mom drops you off in a few days. But right now, I’m here for this guy. You ready to go?

Liam: Uh, mr. Douglas, do you have all your stuff ready?

Kelly: Do you have to go?

Douglas: Can I stay just a little longer? I’m just checking up on kelly’s stuffed animals?

Liam: Uh, yeah. It’s okay with me if it’s okay with finn. Give us a chance to catch up.

Finn: Yeah.

Douglas: Thanks. Come on, kelly.

Liam: Well, look at you.

[ Finn chuckling ]

Finn: They’re amazing kids.

Liam: Yeah, they are.

Finn: Douglas seems happy being back with you, hope and beth.

Liam: We’re happy to have him back. I really, really missed him. And I love him just as much as I do beth or kelly. I know you know something about that. You’re an amazing stepdad. Kelly adores you.

Finn: Oh, douglas feels the same about you.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. I think I just want him to feel supported ’cause he’s never been able to count on that from thomas. And it’s not easy being let down by your father.

Hope: Thomas has burned a lot of bridges around here, paris.

Paris: Yeah. After what he did, he’s not gonna find a lot of fans in the building.

Hope: Nope.

Paris: But, he still is one of the most acclaimed designers out there. And if anyone can bring your collection back from the brink…

Hope: Well, while hope for the future is my line, thomas’s role in the company isn’t up to me. That’s for ridge and steffy to decide.

Thomas: I’m sorry, steff. I thought I was helping.

Steffy: Helping? Wow, thomas. Really?

Thomas: Look, I get it. I get it. I wasn’t helping. I was wrong. And I understand that you’re furious. Look, from now on, I’ll just be the perfectly obedient older brother. How about that?

Steffy: I didn’t want you to be obedient, thomas. I wanna be able to rely on you, trust you, your judgment. Do you think I like being at odds with you? I don’T. I hate this. God, I don’t even know what to say to you right now. You want another chance. You want your job back. Well, I want my brother back. The guy that I grew up with who always tried to do the right thing.

Thomas: I’m– I’m sorry, steffy. I know that I have been in the wrong. I haven’t been a good person. And you deserve better than that. You’ve always been so much better than me. I love you, steff. And I wanna be that person for you. I wanna be the rock that you can lean on. And I’m sorry that I haven’t been, but I promise that I will work tirelessly to become that man. Okay? I promise.

Who’s on it with jardiance?

Finn: Douglas is an amazing kid.

Liam: Yeah, he really is. He’s smart, he’s ethical, he’s resilient.

Finn: Especially when you consider everything he’s been through.

Liam: His mom dying so young. Yeah. I mean, that’s not easy. My cousin just adored him. And when caroline died, you know, thomas became his only parent. I hate to think about what his life would’ve been like if hope hadn’t kind of stepped up and become his mother.

Finn: You’re an important part of that too, huh?

Liam: Well, yeah. I am in the sense that he can depend on me. You know, he knows I’m not gonna let him down. I’m not gonna make him question my judgment.

Finn: It’s just, it’s a shame he got caught up in another one of thomas’s schemes.

Liam: Yeah. Well, he– but– but he didn’t though, right? I mean, he knew. Douglas knew that that bogus call to cps was wrong and he wasn’t gonna keep it a secret. And once again, once again, he did the right thing.

Finn: Clearly something his father hasn’t learned.

Liam: Yeah. Really. I mean, if there’s any justice in this world, it’s that thomas will have learned from all this that actions have consequences.

Paris: Thomas has been a big part of hope for the future’s success.

Hope: Oh, I’m not denying that.

Paris: But it isn’t something you could see happening again?

Hope: I don’t– I don’t know, paris. I mean, what do you think? I mean, how do you feel about thomas?

Paris: Thomas is an extremely creative and talented man. He definitely understands what women find appealing.

Hope: Yes. Agreed. But again, his future at the company is, it’s not my call.

Paris: Yeah. All I’m saying is fashion is about breaking rules and pushing boundaries, especially a line like yours. Yes, thomas went too far with trying to get his parents back together. I’d never say otherwise. But that kind of passion is what makes his work so exciting and successful.

Hope: So you want me to take him back?

Paris: I can’t tell you what to do, but I know how deeply you care about this line. You poured your heart into hope for the future. You want it to thrive. Do you think you should talk with steffy and see if both thomas and his collection can get a second chance?

Thomas: Come on, steffy. We’ve hit rough patches before. You’ve been angry with me, but you’ve always been a person who can support me and be in my corner.

Steffy: Why do you always have to make this so damn hard?

Thomas: I’m sorry. And I know what I did was wrong, but I did it for the right reasons.

Steffy: That is no excuse.

Thomas: You’re right. It’s not an excuse. And that’s why I knew, I knew what was coming and I was ready to take my time in exile.

Steffy: Yet here you are.

Thomas: Yeah, because it’s one thing for me to be punished for my actions, but it’s not okay for hope for the future to be punished. Steffy, you read the review. I can make this better, okay? You need me. Hope for the future needs me. I could’ve waited to tell my doctor my heart

Hope: I’ll admit losing thomas from the team has been a blow.

Paris: Yeah. The reviews for the latest collection weren’t the greatest.

Hope: No, they weren’T. Thomas and I, we– we– were good at collaborating with each other. We were wonderful creative partners and I thought that we understood each other. That we had the same vision and goals. But I was wrong. I was wrong. I told everyone that he had changed. I stuck up for him and he let me down. I trusted him with a lot of things that I hold dear, paris. He hurt the people that I love the most. And so, while on the one hand, I swore to never work with thomas again in order to protect my family, in order to do what was best for them. But then, on the other hand, I care about my career. I care about my line and what it means not only to me but to– to the customers around the world. And I have a responsibility to the people that work for me, for this company. So, I don’t know what to do.

Finn: You know, douglas is welcome here anytime.

Liam: See, I really appreciate that.

Finn: And steffy, she was kinda jealous I got to hang out with him. She really loves her nephew.

Liam: Let her be jealous. No, he– he– he loves spending time with all of them.

Finn: It’s great, the way the kids all get along.

Liam: Well, yeah, ’cause that’s family, right? That’s the way family should be. I– I regret the way that douglas came back to hope and me. But man, it’s so nice to have him home. It’s just– it’s just wonderful that we’re all together again.

Finn: I bet.

Liam: And hope and I are trying. You know, we’re– we’re– we’re– we’re doing our best to give him the– the happy, healthy, loving, secure home that he deserves.

Finn: That’s away from thomas.

Thomas: Nobody understands hope’s vision the way I do. You have to see that. The reviewer definitely did.

Steffy: I get your point, thomas. But I don’t think we should be having this conversation right now, especially while dad’s gone.

Thomas: Look, I don’t think you wanna waste too much time on this. Granddad and zende, they’re both amazing designers, obviously, but they have two very different visions. So the collection, it– it– it lacks focus. What are you gonna do? You’re gonna banish me forever? I want to help and I know that I can.

Hope: Steffy, I– thomas.

Thomas: Hope. Uh, I’m glad that you’re here.

Hope: What’s going on?

Thomas: I– I read the review and I– I never wanted what I did to impact your line. So I was thinking that steffy might let me help you with it. I never stopped designing. What I did to your mom was unforgivable and I’m so sorry. And I asked our son to lie. I hurt everyone. But the worst of it is that I hurt you because you believed in me more than anyone else. I never meant to hurt you. And I am asking for another shot, but not just for me. For you and your line.

Hope: Thomas, do you mind if I have a word with your sister alone?

Thomas: Sure. Um, steffy knows how much I want this. And it’s not gonna fix all the problems that I caused, but it might make a big difference for your collection. And I at least owe you that.

Steffy: Hope, I am so sorry. I had no idea he was gonna show up like this.

Hope: Or is it right on time?

Steffy: Hope?

Hope: Steffy, the collection is a mess. I mean, you read that review, no amount of tinkering is going to save it.

Steffy: So what are you saying? Are you asking me to let thomas come back to the company and design for hope for the future? Hey… it’s me! Your dry skin!

Finn: Doctors, how are the patients?

Douglas: Good. Thanks for letting us borrow your stethoscope, uncle finn.

Kelly: Can we use them again?

Finn: Sure.

Douglas: I told kelly I might be able to come back after school tomorrow.

Finn: We might be able to work something out.

Liam: Yeah. Let’s– let’s ask mom when she gets home later. Do you have your jacket?

Douglas: Yep. And the picture kelly made me.

Liam: Oh, come here. Come here. That is beautiful, kel! I love you. I’ll see you later, okay?

Douglas: Thanks for letting me hang out, uncle finn. I had a really good time.

Finn: Hey, you are always welcome here, douglas. Your aunt and I love having you. And I know kelly and hayes feel the same way.

Paris: Thomas?

Thomas: Miss me?

Paris: You are not supposed to be here.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, maybe that’s about to change.

Paris: Maybe. I was just talking with hope and I think she’s considering letting you back on the team.

Thomas: Actually, hope is meeting with my sister right now about that. I think that there’s a real chance I’ll be welcomed back at forrester, specifically hope for the future. They need me.

Steffy: You wanna give thomas his job back?

Hope: Never in a million years did I think I would ever consider it. But this is business. It can’t be personal. As– as much as it infuriates me and as much as I hate feeling conflicted like this, I mean, thomas did target my mother’s marriage to your father. He dragged our son into his manipulations again.

Steffy: But he is not gonna learn anything if we don’t hold him accountable.

Hope: I agree.

Steffy: But you also have your line to consider.

Hope: Exactly. This is a fashion house and we have a lot of people to consider. And as co-ceo, I know you understand that. And look, when it comes to thomas, I trust his talent. But that is as far as it goes for me.

Steffy: I know you’ve floated the idea of thomas designing, but not coming into the office. Is that what you’re suggesting?

Hope: I honestly have no idea what I am suggesting. I don’T.

Steffy: Well, we need to figure out what this means. The message we’re sending thomas. Will we give him a pass, welcome him back with open arms? I mean, the guy has had so many chances, but no real consequences. He didn’t just hurt your mother, but he broke my parents’ heart. He hurt our family.

Hope: He disappointed a lot of people, especially douglas. But we also have to face the fact that thomas and his talent are a very big part of forrester creation success.

Steffy: Are you saying what I think you’re saying? In order for hope for the future to succeed, we need thomas and his designs?

Sheila: Mm. The new owner of il giardino, you really have outdone yourself, deacon.

Deacon: It’s been a dream of mine for a long time, but it’s nothing compared to what you’ve accomplished.

Sheila: What’s that? Maintaining my freedom?

Deacon: I– I don’t know how you did it, but you did it again. You pulled another rabbit out of your hat.

Sheila: With the help of a very good man.

Deacon: Oh, thank you. I appre– oh, you– I’m sorry. You meant your– your boy toy, bill. By the way, you might have to find a nickname because boy toy, bill, little long in the tooth. Come on. Honestly, are you telling me that you’re in love with this megalomaniac, or are you just using him?

Eric: It’s fine, don’t worry. We’ll– we’ll make adjustments.

Steffy: It’s only one review, hope.

Zende: What does that guy know anyway?

Hope: Well, he’s just one of the top critics in the fashion world.

Steffy: Well, he’s wrong. Your line is spectacular. You, zende and granddad work day and night, perfecting those designs.

Eric: Now read it again. It can’t be that bad.

Hope: “The new design team for hope for the future shows signs of inspiration, but it is a far cry from the artistry and innovation under thomas forrester.”

Thomas: Artistry and innovation.

Paris: You can’t get enough of that review, can you?

Thomas: Look, it’s not like I want my granddad or zende to fail, but the truth is no one can bring out the life of that line like I can.

Paris: What are you doing? Looking for more compliments?

Thomas: No, I am checking my messages. I’m waiting for hope or my sister to reach out and tell me how much they need me.

Paris: I don’t know if I’ve seen you this happy.

Thomas: Vindication.

Paris: I know you’d still rather be working at forrester.

Thomas: Yeah, it is gonna be awesome when they ask me to come back.

Paris: Wow, you seem pretty confident.

Thomas: It’s only a matter of time before they rehire me, right? And I know it’s gonna be hard for them to swallow their pride, but um, they need me. And that lackluster review, that proves it.

Zende: I’m sorry. I can’t help feeling responsible.

Eric: No, don’t do that. Don’t do that. This– this critic just needs time to uh, adjust to the changes we’ve made in the line, the changes in the look, you know. If anyone is to blame it’s me.

Zende: Grandad, come on.

Eric: No, no. I have decades of experience. I– I should have been able to pull this off. No, no. No one is to blame. This was a collaboration. We all signed off on the final looks, but clearly we missed the mark. And now we have a limited amount of time to make it right. And I am trying not to panic.

Steffy: Don’T.

Hope: Well, steffy, we invested every resource into making this collection a hit.

Zende: So we go back to the drawing board.

Hope: I mean, will that really help though? I mean, I hate to say it, but do desperate times call for desperate measures? Do we need thomas back on hope for the future?

Deacon: You still haven’t answered me.

Sheila: What? About the pizza? I told you less oregano and a little more garlic.

Deacon: No. About your claim that you’re in love with spencer. How is that even possible?

Sheila: Why is it so hard to believe?

Deacon: Oh, well, for starters, he’s not your type.

Sheila: Well, I really wouldn’t have thought so either, but.

Deacon: How long has this secret little affair been going on? I mean, you were living with me for months. I– I thought you were into me? And now you’re with spencer, the most arrogant jerk on the planet?

Sheila: Yeah. Well, don’t take it personally. I know it’s difficult to lose at love. I– I– I know that.

Deacon: Hm. But did I really lose? And is your relationship with spencer the real deal? I’m managing my high blood pressure, you’re trying to be

Thomas: Yeah. It’s just,mmm.

Thomas: You know, I lost so much, but you have been so great to me. Your encouragement and um, well, allowing me to crash here.

Paris: Oh, hey, I enjoy the company even though you make me late for work.

Thomas: Yeah. It’s just, it’s nice that someone still wants me around.

Paris: Well, I always try to see the best in people. You made a mistake, obviously a really bad one, but you regret it.

Thomas: Yeah. But nobody really wants to hear my apologies. They kicked me out of forrester, out of the family, and I’ve lost my son. That’s the worst part. I miss douglas so much.

Paris: I’m so sorry you’re going through this, but I can also see you’re trying to be a better man. And hey, things are looking up for you. Forrester seems to need you. They’re struggling without you.

Steffy: Thomas? Hope, seriously?

Hope: Well, you heard that review. The line is in trouble.

Zende: So we’ll fix it. You, me and granddad will put our heads together and–

Hope: And what? Are we going to pull a brand new line out of thin air?

Eric: Yes, we can do that. It’s not too late. We can do it.

Steffy: It’s a way better idea than welcoming back thomas. You just terminated him and you said that you’re trusting your line in zende’s and granddad’s hands.

Eric: Have you forgotten what he did to your mother?

Hope: No, I haven’t forgotten. And I won’t be able to forgive him for that. But this is bigger than me. I mean, I have a whole team of people to think about, their livelihoods. So I need to consider every angle. I mean, I don’t know. Maybe there’s a way we could do it in a way that hasn’t been done before.

Steffy: What are you thinking?

Hope: Well, thomas could work remotely and that way he’s not allowed into the building. And he could communicate via email.

Zende: Really?

Hope: It’s an option.

Steffy: Wow. I was not prepared for this. But as ceo, I’ll consider it. But ultimately, we need to speak to my dad before making any decision about thomas.

Deacon: I do appreciate you coming here before open so that no one would see us together, even though you’re a free woman. A lot of people though, wouldn’t be too happy to see us together.

Sheila: Heavens forbid.

Deacon: Mm. So how did this– this spicy romance with bill get started?

Sheila: Oh, you want details?

Deacon: I’m a big boy. I think my shattered heart can handle it.

Sheila: Well, I was living upstairs and I snuck down here one night and bill spencer was sitting at the bar eating and drinking alone, and something just seemed off. I was wildly intrigued by that.

Deacon: Hmm.

Sheila: When he left, I followed him.

Deacon: Back to his palace.

Sheila: No. No, to the beach. We sat in the sand until sunrise talking.

Deacon: Sounds like a cheesy novel my grandmother would read. The billionaire and the fugitive.

Sheila: He really surprised me. Turns out we’re more like one another than I could have ever imagined. Just both misunderstood and– and always under attack. Turns out we both just wanted to be loved.

Deacon: Well, you know, look at you all– all glowing and stuff. Okay, great. You’ve got real feelings for bill.

Sheila: Yeah, I do. I really do. And I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with bill spencer.

Deacon: I’m sure you hope you do.

[ Sheila laughing ]

Deacon: I’m just trying to wrap my head around the idea of you and spencer.

Sheila: Hey, it was unexpected for me too.

Deacon: So tell me the truth. I mean, were you just using me? I mean, not just for this, you know, the– the food, the shelter, the security, all that.

Sheila: No, I cared for you, deacon. And I still do.

Deacon: Now, you’re moving on with spencer.

Sheila: It’s– it’s not that I didn’t enjoy every minute with you.

Deacon: How could you not? I treated you like a queen.

Sheila: You were a very, very giving roommate.

Deacon: I’ve heard that before. I have. Yeah. But– and where’s it gotten me? You know, single. And I– when– bill and me, I’m just curious, you know, how do I measure up?

Sheila: Um.

Deacon: Come on.

Sheila: You– you measure up just fine.

Deacon: Boom! I knew it!

Sheila: You do not have to feel less.

Deacon: Haha. And I don’T. Hey, tell me, does he do that little thing with it?

Sheila: Oh. Uh-huh. You know, a lady doesn’t kiss and tell.

Deacon: This has been a crazy ride, hasn’t it? I mean, you show up at my place, a desperate jail bird. You got nowhere to go. No place to stay. Now, look at you. You’re free as a bird. Living in spencer’s mansion. Miracles do happen.

Sheila: Miracles don’t just happen. I make them happen. I do.

Deacon: I know.

[ Sheila laughing ]

[ Hope sighing ]

Paris: Hey.

Hope: Oh, paris. Hi.

Paris: Sorry again for missing the meeting.

Hope: It’s fine. It’s been a pretty stressful day for everyone.

Paris: What’s going on? Oh, right. The review on the latest collection is supposed to come in today.

Hope: Yeah, it already did.

Paris: Not good?

Hope: The critic wasn’t too impressed.

Paris: Oh, no. That sucks. Did they say why?

Hope: Um, basically, it is pretty clear what the problem is. And that is that–

Paris: Zende and eric aren’t thomas.

Steffy: Obviously, pierre has been in business for years, but it’s the first he’s seen of many new designs. There is so much more to come, so many surprises. Do you mind if I– I call you back? Thanks. Thomas, what are you doing here?

Thomas: It’s okay. Charlie didn’t see me. I snuck in, so nobody knows I’m here.

Steffy: I do.

Thomas: So what? Dad’s out of town and granddad is having his afternoon pickleball date with donna right now.

Steffy: You shouldn’t be here. You know that.

Thomas: By that sound of that phone call.

Steffy: Oh, you’re eavesdropping?

Thomas: I read that piece on hope for the future and steffy, I am sorry that you’re having to do all this damage control.

Steffy: Thomas, it’s not your business anymorE. God, I can’t– I can’t deal with you right now. Timing couldn’t be worse.

Thomas: Actually, hearing the spin that you’re trying to put on that bad review seems like my timing couldn’t be any better.

Deacon: So then you admit it. You worked your charm. You made it happen with bill.

Sheila: Actually, it– it happened organically. You know how it is when you open up to somebody and– and you’re talking about your life and– and what you like and– and your wants and your needs. Kinda what– what lights you up.

Deacon: Kinda thought that’s what we were doing not too long ago back at my palatial estate.

Sheila: Actually I really liked that little place. You know what, now that you are a restaurateur, I’m sure you’re going to have your own estate in no time.

Deacon: We’ll see.

Sheila: You know, I– I really… I look back fondly at all those hidden moments that we had together.

Deacon: Okay. Sheila, you can’t say anything about that.

Sheila: I know.

Deacon: I mean it. I– I– especially, especially for hope. Nothing.

Sheila: No, quite honestly, I really don’t want bill to know that we were rooming together either.

Deacon: We were sleeping together in the bed, the couch.

Sheila: Oh, okay. Okay. Yeah.

Deacon: Against the wall, in the kitchen.

Sheila: Uh-huh. Yeah. I– I remember quite vividly.

Deacon: Oh, I bet you do, honey. You ain’t never gonna forget.

Sheila: No. No. We have a lot of romantic moments, but you know what was really special to me is when you came to see me in jail.

Deacon: Thought I’d be doing that for years.

Sheila: I really do appreciate it.

Deacon: All right. All right. Look, I– I– I gotta ask, with you and spencer, I– I get it, your feelings are legit. You’re not playing the guy.

Sheila: Sorry to disappoint.

Deacon: He’s just so full of himself. I mean, are you– are you really that tight?

Sheila: I thought I made myself perfectly clear, deacon. I hope you enjoyed that because that is never gonna happen again. I don’t wanna do anything that’ll risk what I have right now.

Deacon: Then why did you come here?

Sheila: I wanted to tell you about bill and me. And I– I wanted– I wanted to congratulate you or you know what? Maybe I should be saying congratulazi– um, congratulazi–.

Deacon: Are you trying to say congratulazioni? You gotta move your mouth more.

Sheila: No. Yes.

Deacon: You can do it.

Sheila: That’s what I wanted to say.

Deacon: Brava.

Paris: Well, for what it’s worth, I thought the collection was beautiful.

Hope: Thank you. I did too. And you know, obviously we were trying to pick up where we left off with the previous collection, but I guess we just did not recapture that magic.

Paris: I don’t mean to pry, but are you considering asking thomas to come back and design for hope for the future?

Thomas: Take a look at what I’ve come up with.

Steffy: Thomas, you don’t work here anymore.

Thomas: Yes, I know that. But maybe, just maybe, these will change that. Just look, they’re for hope for the future. They’re good, sis. No, scratch that. They are great. They’re exactly what hope’s line needs. It’s a shame they’re not in production right now.

Steffy: Well, you know why, thomas.

Thomas: Yeah, I get it. Everyone’s mad at me, but I still care about the line.

Steffy: And hope?

Thomas: Yes, I care about hope, but not like that. Steffy, look, I know that I screwed up, all right? But I– I can’t be, like, banished forever. I mean, that review shows how much hope and her line needs me right now. I mean, what? Am– am I supposed to be like never forgiven, never brought back into the line, never brought back into the family? Look, yeah. I– I used an app to try and reunite our parents.

Steffy: You say it so casually, thomas. Do you not have any remorse?

Thomas: Of course I have remorse and I’m very sorry for what I did. All right. But what about brooke and all the years of pain and heartache that she’s brought on our family? I’m not asking for a full pardon. I know it’s gonna take a while for me to regain everyone’s confidence, but at least let me be a part of the family business.

Steffy: It’s not that simple, thomas.

Thomas: Look, you know that I am artistic and creative types can be a little obsessive.

Steffy: You took it to a whole new level.

Thomas: Yeah, I did. I went way overboard and I never should have. I’m so sorry, steffy. I– I– it– it pains me so much that I hurt you, that I hurt douglas, but come on, please give me another chance. I mean, you– you have the power, right? You’re co-ceo with dad. You could bring me back into the family and you could give me a chance here. I mean… please tell me that I still have a place here. Tell me that I can still be a part of forrester creations.

[ Hope sighing ]

[ Phone chiming ]

Steffy: Anything?

Hope: Not yet.

Steffy: Well, shouldn’t be much longer.

Hope: I mean, it’s– it’s bound to be good, right? Eric isn’t a novice, and zende helped out a lot with the last showing.

Steffy: I’m sure the reviews will reflect that. But you aren’t sure?

Hope: Well, it’s just– you know, this hope for the future collection isn’t being designed by thomas and a lot rides on how the press reacts to that.

Paris: Ooh, you bringing me coffee? A girl could get used to this.

Thomas: Well, I just hope you know how thankful I am, you know, after my family kicked me out, you gave me a place to stay and that’s a big favor.

Paris: And this is your way of repaying me?

Thomas: Can you think of a better way?

Deacon: God, look at this. This thing is like an oil slick. Negative. This– this looks pretty good. Mm. That’s good.

[ Footsteps approaching ] Well, I’ll be.

Sheila: How have you been? Long time no see. You’re having pizza for breakfast.

Deacon: Take a bite. Try a slice. I’m trying to perfect my signature pie.

Sheila: Hm.

Deacon: Come on.

Sheila: Okay. Mm. Hm. I’m thinking maybe a little less oregano, more garlic.

Deacon: Hm. Noted.

Sheila: Loving the sun dried tomatoes.

Deacon: Delicious, right?

Sheila: Mm.

Deacon: So, look at you all footloose and fancy free. What brings you here?

Sheila: I wanted to congratulate you. Really. New proprietor of il giardino, deacon sharpe? Quite a feat.

Deacon: Well, if anyone knows about feat, it’s you.

[ Sheila laughs ] Hey, listen, um, you’re the one I ought to be congratulating. Pulling off getting out of prison, just like you said you would.

Eric: I really like the direction that this design is taking.

Zende: Me too.

Eric: It suits hope for the future. Yeah. To a T.

Zende: I agree. I’m really happy with it, with all the work that we’ve done in thomas’s absence.

Eric: Well, you should be. I’m proud of you, zende.

Zende: Thanks, granddad. Actually, you know, for the first time, I’m starting to feel really confident in my skill.

Eric: You should.

Zende: But if I’m being completely honest, I still feel like I’m designing in thomas’ shadow.

Paris: You’re sweet, but it really should be me thanking you.

Thomas: Really? Why?

Paris: Well, you let me hang here when I had nowhere else to go. So, it’s only fair that I repay you.

Thomas: Huh? By giving me a free place to stay?

Paris: I wouldn’t say free because you’ll be doing the cooking.

Thomas: Oh.

Paris: And the cleaning.

Thomas: Okay.

Paris: And the cooking.

Thomas: That’s cooking twice.

Paris: I just love the way you cook.

Thomas: Huh.

[ Phone chiming ]

[ Hope sighing ]

Hope: Look, while i appreciate eric and zende stepping up in thomas’s absence, I mean, it is a different feel.

Steffy: So, you don’t think that their designs will generate as much positive buzz?

Hope: Well, I– I hope they do. It’s just thomas had the entire fashion world talking. I mean, when those designs hit the runway, it blew everyonewae saleed it.It’s just,t’s a ha a but my grandfather’s been doing this forever. And zende is a great designer too.

Hope: You’re right. You’re right. I’m probably worrying over nothing. Like we already don’t have enough to worry about.

Steffy: Ugh. I still can’t believe sheila’s out of prison. That’s what you always wanted. I’m really happy for you.

Deacon: Thanks. I’m happy for you too. Sehow, some way, you managed to do it again. You landed on your feet. You swore you get out of prison. I thought you were loony tunes, I’ll admit it. You proved me wrong again.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, what did I always tell you, daddy? Never count sheila carter out.

Deacon: Daddy won’t ever again.

I gotta good feeling

about this, yeah

Eric: I understand you feeling that way, I really do. I mean, in spite of the despicable things that thomas has done in his past, he’s a very gifted designer. But so are you, zende, don’t you forget that, all right? Now, as far as hope for the future goes, we’ve put our heads together. We’ve come up with a– with some really nice different directions for the line. I think this collaboration has been a big success, don’t you?

Zende: Yeah, absolutely, granddad.

Eric: Good.

Zende: And I appreciate your support, but I still have to wonder how our collection will be received. I’m not thomas.

Paris: I know it’s been hard on you being the outcast of the family.

Thomas: Yeah. I mean, all I was trying to do was bring my mom and dad back together.

Paris: Mm. It was a bit more than that.

Thomas: Yeah, you’re right. It was.

Paris: But I can also tell that you really love your family.

Thomas: I do. You know, sometimes I don’t play by the same rules, but I think my heart is always in the right place.

Paris: I can see both sides.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, it– I’ll say, it’s really nice to know that I have at least one person in my corner.

Paris: Mm-hmm. And it’s nice to know that I have someone like thomas forrester in my life.

Thomas: Hey. That’s what I’m talking about.

Steffy: I am sure sheila thinks she is free to go wherever she pleases, but she will get nowhere near kelly and hayes.

Hope: Well, I feel the exact same way. Keeping the children safe from that woman is priority number one. Especially now that kelly and douglas are spending so much time together.

Steffy: Yeah. Kelly loves having him over. And she loves going to your place too.

Hope: They’re so sweet together. I mean, there’s just been a lot of changes in douglas’ life after what thomas did. So, I think him spending extra time with his aunt steffy and his cousins is exactly what he needs.

[ Steffy scoffing ]

Steffy: Thomas is my brother. I mean, I– I love him, but I’m just so disappointed in him, what he’s done.

Hope: Has he um, reached out to you at all or tried to reconnect?

Steffy: No. He hasn’t really been on my mind. I’m way more focused on the threat of sheila right now.

Sheila: So, you gonna make any changes here or are you just going to work on perfecting your signature pie?

Deacon: Okay. You know what? When the hungry masses are camped out around the corner, you will not be laughing.

Sheila: Oh, I– I probably will be.

Deacon: You won’t get a seat. Sheila, you know, I can read your mind. I know you’re thinking about the alley. What happened that night. Some incredible things.

Sheila: Yeah. Unfortunate and deeply regrettable.

Deacon: Yeah.

Sheila: But I’m trying to not dwell on that. I would much rather think of the happy memories I have here. One in particular.

Deacon: Oh, yeah?

Sheila: Yeah. You remember when you closed early and you planned a special night out for me? It just… it meant the world to me. And so does this. Coming here to your restaurant now as a totally free woman.

Deacon: It’s pretty cool. But I gotta ask, how’d you do it? And what the hell is going on with you and spencer?

Paris: Oh, my goodness. Is it really that late?

Thomas: Why? You have somewhere to be?

Paris: I have a hope for the future meeting this morning.

Thomas: You’re sitting in on those now?

Paris: We’re all pitching in these days.

Thomas: Ah, since I was banished from forrester, you mean?

Paris: Well, hope’s line is in transition. It’s a very stressful time, so we’re all rallying around her and giving her our support.

Thomas: She wouldn’t need that if I was still around. Hope wouldn’t be worrying about a thing if I was still lead designer. That’s not ego. And I– I’ve proven myself and everyone knows it.

Hope: I will admit, I really do miss thomas’ designs.

[ Phone chiming ] I mean, he really did capture the essence of hope for the future.

Steffy: And of the woman behind it.

Hope: Yes. Thomas was very intuitive. And creatively, it was almost as if he knew what I wanted before I even did. I mean, I–

[ Phone chiming ]

Eric: Ladies, are we interrupting?

Steffy: No, we were actually discussing hope’s line.

Zende: Meeting still on?

Hope: Yes. But has anyone seen paris?

Zende: No. I thought she might be with– with you two.

Steffy: I’m sure she’s running late. She’ll be here soon.

Hope: And speaking of paris, are things good between you two?

Zende: Yeah. Yeah. They’re– we’re just friends now. It’s cool. Anyway, I’m kinda anxious. The reviews now that thomas isn’t part of the design team, has anyone heard anything yet?

[ Phone chiming] Is that it?

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Steffy: What’s it say?

Deacon: Don’t get me wrong. I am happy for you. I don’t condone all the things that you’ve done, especially in that alley, but uh, I do like seeing you like this.

Sheila: Not behind bars.

Deacon: Happy, upbeat. Sheila, you are amazing. You pulled off the impossible. Hell, I’ll say it. You know what? You are a freaking genius. An evil genius, but a genius nonetheless. Did you really get guthrie to take the rap? I mean, you played that guy like a cheap fiddle.

Sheila: Well, what can I say? Mike has always had a soft spot for me.

Deacon: Mm-hmm. Yeah. And you capitalized on it big time, right? Look, playing guthrie’s one thing, but playing dollar bill, I mean, that’s impressive. So I gotta ask again, how did you do it? Does your vitamin c last 24 hours?

Paris: The hope for the future meeting probably already started.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, you’re one of hope’s closest friends. I’m sure it’ll be fine. Unlike me, who is persona non grata around the hallowed halls of forrester creation these days.

Paris: You really miss it, don’t you? Not being a part of the hftf team?

Thomas: Mm. Just rub it in a little more, why don’t you? You should probably go ahead and get going.

Paris: Right. The latest review on the collection designed by zende and eric are coming in.

Thomas: Whoa. Whoa. That’s happening today?

Zende: Any minute now.

Thomas: Huh. I’m– I’m interested to see how their designs stack up with mine in the press. I’m sure mine will be considered so much better ’cause I’m awesome.

Hope: “One of the first successful fashion lines touting an environmental/ sustainability message, hope for the future has always topped itself with each new collection. In fact, it was only a short while ago that this reviewer was effusive in his praise of the line’s previous collection spearheaded by the lead designer, thomas forrester. In that review, we waxed enthusiastically about how excited we were to see what would come next. In a surprise shake up, however, the latest styles were imagined from hope for the future’s number two designer, zende forrester and forrester creation’s founder, eric forrester. After seeing their collection, one thing is obvious. While the new design team shows signs of inspiration, it is a far cry from the artistry and creative innovation under thomas forrester.”

Zende: Um, the reviewer was being polite, but it’s clear he doesn’t think the collection is nearly as good.

Thomas: Wow. The reviewer is being kind, but he is ripping them to shreds.

Paris: Wow. Even after all the hard work zende and eric put into it?

Thomas: I do have all those designs ready to go. I could save the day.

Paris: Meaning you may not be the outcast for much longer?

Thomas: That’s right. Hopefully, they’ll be calling soon, blowing up my phone and begging me to come back. Huh.

Deacon: So hope filled me in. She gave me the skinny how you showed up at finn and steffy’s and they were gonna call the cops, but then bill showed up and he blackmailed them with something so that they wouldn’t testify. And then he bribed the judge to drop the rest of the charges. Am I missing anything?

Sheila: Pretty much covers it.

Deacon: Huh, I mean, ’cause bill is an absolute megalomaniac. He doesn’t show mercy to anyone. Least of all someone like you. Sheila, come on, be honest with me. Fess up. How did you do this? I mean, bill is one of the wealthiest people in the universe. And what, he– he takes pity on you? You two are supposedly in a relationship?

Sheila: We are in a relationship. I’m living with bill at his estate.

Deacon: Okay. All right. Yeah. Great.

Sheila: You mean that?

Deacon: Yeah. No, I mean, look, I think he’s a world-class jerk, but uh, I’m happy for you.

Sheila: Thank you. Means a lot to me.

Deacon: You know how I feel about you. And you and I, we’ve been through a lot together. I’ve put my ass on the line for you more than once, and I think we both know why. Sheila, I gotta ask you. You and bill, how much are you in love with him, and how much are you using him?

Bill: You’re right, brooke. Everything you’re saying is absolutely right.

Brooke: You are a good man, bill. The way you love, just so passionate. So powerful. It belongs with somebody who deserves it. Not with someone like sheila, who’s gonna just drag you down into her darkness. You’re too good for that.

Paul: Here.

Deacon: Oh, thanks.

Paul: You haven’t slept in days.

Deacon: Make that weeks. But it’s gonna be worth it.

Paul: You nervous?

Deacon: A little bit, but I’m mostly excited. I’ve been waiting for a long time for a break like this.

Paul: Man, I’m so happy for you. I mean, to think that someday you would own this place, just can’t believe it.

Deacon: You and me both. Hey, honey.

Hope: Hi!

Deacon: Your timing could not be any better.

Hope: Uh, why? What’s going on?

Deacon: You are looking at the new proprietor of this fine dining establishment. Welcome to deacon sharpe’s il giardino.

Hope: What?

Hope: Okay. So how– how did this–

Deacon: So how did I go from cleaning the toilets to owning the joint? Um, well, I knew the previous owner was looking to get out, and so I put together some investors. I scraped together the money for the down payment, and I am gonna be working day and night to pay it off. But hope, I gotta tell you, I think it’s gonna be worth it. I feel like I finally found my niche after searching for so many years.

Hope: This is amazing.

Deacon: You know, a big part of this was making you proud.

Hope: Well, guess what? I am very proud.

Deacon: Hey, do you wanna get a bite? I know this new place under new management. I can get us a set table.

Hope: Um…

Deacon: What?

Hope: Yeah, it’s just–

Deacon: What’s up?

Hope: So I’m guessing you haven’t heard.

Deacon: What? I’ve been pretty out of the loop doing this 24/7.

Hope: So you don’t know about sheila?

Deacon: What’s there to know? She’s in prison. Probably gonna be locked up for the rest of her life.

Brooke: Bill, are you ready? Sheila is one phone call away from being back in prison and out of our lives.

Sheila: I’m not going to listen to–

Brooke: Ugh.

Sheila: I meant everything that I said to you. I love you and I am willing to walk away from all of this if it’s costing you too much. You just say the word and I will walk away right now. But that has got to be your decision, not brooke’S. Hi, I’m lauren, I lost 67 pounds on golo.

Deacon: This is crazy, hope. I’m– wait, wait. So sheila’s free? I– so bill goes over to finn and steffy’s and– and what? He blackmails them so that they don’t press charges or testify? I–

Hope: Well, finn and steffy are pretty certain that bill bribed the judge to drop the charges.

Deacon: That’s unbelievable.

Hope: Well, yeah. Tell me about it. We keep underestimating sheila. I mean, just when we think she’s been put away once and for all she just–

Deacon: Yeah. This doesn’t make any sense though. I mean, bill hates sheila.

Hope: Well, not anymore. Dad, like I said, something in bill has changed and so many people have tried to get through to him, but it’s just, it’s like he’s lost.

Deacon: Yeah. Billionaire problems. That’s rough.

Hope: Well, money can’t buy you love.

Deacon: I’d like to put that theory to the test.

Hope: Dad!

Deacon: Look, I’m sorry. I’m just having a tough time wrapping my head around spencer having any emotions other than arrogance and chronic jackass-ery.

Hope: Well, that being said, he has burned pretty much every bridge. So he was alone, probably terrified. And that made him vulnerable to sheila.

Deacon: Yeah, but why? I mean, like, what’s the angle here? I’m not getting it. What does bill being sad have to do with working with sheila?

Hope: Oh, I don’t think he’s working with her dad.

Deacon: That’s exactly what I’m saying. Then what–

Hope: He’s protecting her because he cares about her.

Deacon: Stop. Don’t say it.

Hope: Bill and sheila are together.

Sheila: Look at me. Don’t look at her. They all wanna change you, bill. They see you as a potential, a fixer upper. I look at you and I see the man I’ve been waiting for my entire life.

Brooke: You can try all you want, sheila, but deep down bill knows this isn’t what he wants. Bill, she shot steffy. The mother of your grandchild. She shot me. She shot her own son for god’s sake.

Sheila: That was an accident.

Brooke: An accident? Did you call 9-1-1? No, you pulled the trigger and you ran.

Sheila: Please, don’t let her come between us. Stop it.

Brooke: There is no “us.” Bill, as long as sheila is out of prison and running free on the streets, she’s gonna be a danger to you, to your family, to all of us. Is that what you really want? I– I don’t know what she did to get to you, but you have to listen to me. You have to trust me.

Bill: You’re right, brooke. Everything you’re saying is right.

Brooke: Oh, thank god. I knew you’d come to your senses.

Bill: I can’t argue with any of it. Sheila being here doesn’t make sense.

Brooke: Okay. Okay. Well, well then let’s– let’s do this.

Bill: But it’s what I want. It’s what I need. Did you know, some ordinary cold medicines can raise your blood pressure?

Deacon: Are you– are you sure that finn and steffy didn’t get this wrong somehow? Because I’m just not seeing it. I mean, sheila and bill together? Come on.

Hope: Well, steffy and finn confirmed it. Liam and wyatt confirmed it. Aunt katie too. I mean, they’ve all seen them together and it does get worse.

Deacon: How the hell could this get any worse?

Hope: They claim to love each other.

Deacon: Love? H– how is this even possible?

Hope: I don’t know. I think bill was down and out and sheila capitalized on it.

Deacon: When did this start? How did this even happen? How long has it been going on?

Hope: I don’t– I don’t know. I– we are totally and completely in the dark about all this. All I know is that liam is very, very concerned about his father. And frankly, we all are.

Deacon: But you think that sheila’s just using bill, right?

Hope: Well, of course. I mean, I don’t think someone like sheila is even capable of love. I mean, any sane person could see that. And that’s how we know bill isn’t okay right now. I mean, what kind of person would have real feelings for some

Brooke: You want her, bill? You need her? How can you say that knowing the danger we’re all in?

Bill: Sheila won’t be a threat.

Brooke: Won’t be a threat? She will always be a threat. Think of everything that she’s done to us. Think about taylor, steffy, finn, hayes. Think about your grandchildren, kelly and beth, your son. My god! We’re all a family, bill, and she’s a danger to all of us as long as she’s roaming free. I don’t know what you said or what you did to get into his head, but my god, bill, she is using you.

Sheila: That is enough. Bill is not a man that can be manipulated, not by me, and most definitely not by you.

Brooke: We loved each other, bill. I am just looking out for you. You have to know that. Please, just listen to me.

Sheila: No, you know what? You listen to him.

Brooke: Shut up! Shut up! Just let bill speak for once.

Sheila: He wants me to speak for him.

Brooke: Oh, god. For the first time, he has somebody that understands him and truly appreciates him. Something that you and your sister could never do.

Brooke: My god. This is it, bill? This is what you call love? This isn’t love. Can’t you see what she’s doing? Please just open your eyes. She’s a danger to everybody.

Sheila: Advice on love? Are you really that arrogant? And why would bill listen to anything that you have to say about love, brooke? A woman who allowed a man to bounce back and forth between you and another for years. A woman that had an affair and slept with and had a daughter by her grown daughter’s husband. You make me sick. All of you people, you know, you throw stones from your glass pedestals thinking that you’re better than all of us.

Brooke: You nearly killed your own son, sheila.

Sheila: Yeah. And taylor nearly killed the man that you say you loved. What about her? Did she pay for her crimes? The hypocrisy is just sickening to me. And that is what bill has finally seen. Because unlike you and katie, I am never gonna turn my back on him. I am never going to leave him alone. He finally found someone that wears her flaws proudly and I am not gonna call him a monster for his. You can’t stand this, can you? Seeing that he needs me and that he loves me. But you know what? It’s the truth. So you just better learn to accept it. Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.

Deacon: I’m just trying to wrap my head around this. Bill and sheila in a relationship?

Hope: Yeah. None of us could really believe it. I mean, the place bill has spiraled into must be pretty dark if he thinks he’s in love with sheila.

Deacon: I mean darker than usual? Sure this isn’t just bill being bill?

Hope: I mean, bill has done some terrible questionable things, but for him to think that he has feelings for sheila after everything that she has done? I mean, you know what? Dad, I’m– I’m actually– I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t be talking about this right now. I should– I should be celebrating your new place with you and not talking about sheila.

Deacon: Listen, I’m glad you came here and got me caught up. Believe me. Um, hey, I’ll tell you what, why don’t you come here tonight for dinner, okay? We can toast then.

Hope: I would love that. Congratulations again, dad. I am very, very, very proud of you.

Deacon: Thank you.

Hope: All right, I gotta go.

Deacon: Okay.

Hope: And dad?

Deacon: Daughter.

Hope: I know you and sheila were close at one time. So if she calls, hang up the phone.

Deacon: Don’t worry about me. I know to handle sheila.

Sheila: Deacon,

deacon, deacon.

You haven’t been listening.

I’m a survivor.

Yes, I’ve had ups and downs

and there have been


but I– I– I truly believe

people get what they deserve.

I deserve another chance.

The best is yet to come

so just stay tuned.

I’ve said it before

and I’ll say it again.

You have not seen

the last of sheila carter.

Deacon: Son of a bitch. You did it, sheila. You really did it.

Sheila: I think you need to leave, brooke. You’re upsetting bill.

Brooke: I’ve really never been this worried about you, bill. Are you gonna let sheila do this? Really? You’re gonna let her kick me out of your home? You’re gonna let her speak for you? My god, bill! Do you have anything to say for yourself?

Bill: There is A… deep, painful emptiness inside of me. I loved you. There was nothing I wouldn’t have done for you, for your sister. Katie and I have a family. Family that means everything to me. You mean everything to me. I put my heart on the line for you over and over and over again. For katie. You trampled on it.

Brooke: Bill, bill–

Sheila: No, just let him finish.

Bill: You walked out on me. You and katie, you abandoned me and that hurt. I have feelings and I have needs.

Brooke: Right. Right, you have needs. Yeah. This is what you need, sheila.

Bill: Yes. Yes. Sheila is what I need.

Sheila: I think you’ve heard enough, okay? You understand why I’m here. Because I understand him. I accept him, I support him and I love him.

Brooke: Okay. I can’t believe this is happening. But you know what, bill? I’m not gonna stop until I am able to get through to you. Mark my words. And I am not gonna stop ’til you are behind bars rotting in prison where you belong. You hear me, sheila? Rotting in prison!

Brooke: I still can’t wrap my head around this. Bill and sheila?

Hope: It is certainly disturbing.

Brooke: Well, she should be in prison after everything she’s done.

Liam: But thanks to my dad, she’s not. She’s roaming free.

Brooke: How can bill have anything to do with sheila? Liam, what’s going on with him? How could your father stoop so low?

[ Sheila laughing ]

Bill: It’s the one thing

I can’t take.

People I love

walking out on me.

Sheila: You are never

going to have to worry

about that with me. Hello, handsome.

Bill: You okay? My sons didn’t upset you too much, did they?

Sheila: Oh, no. No. If anything, I’m happier than I was before. I got to see you defend me. I got to see how much you really care for me and I am okay. I am– I am more than okay, now that I finally found a man like you.

Sheila: Liam and wyatt, they just don’t understand us right now, but in time, they will. At least I– I hope so ’cause, uh, I know how important they are to you and it really bothers me that my presence is distancing you from– from them or anyone else that you care about.

Bill: Don’t let it.

Sheila: Yeah, but I know that you’d like them to share in our joy. But bill, you can talk to me. I’ve said that. You can say anything that you want to. So how do you really feel about this?

Brooke: Bill has made some serious mistakes in the past that have had frightening consequences. But this? I thought I knew him. I thought I understood him.

Liam: Join the club. Hm. I didn’t think that my dad could surprise me any more than he already has in the past and he sure proved me wrong. I mean, wy– wyatt and I were just over there pleading with him. He’s not– he’s not him right now. He’s– he’s lost.

Brooke: We’ve gotta get him away from her.

Liam: I know and I’m trying to say that wyatt and I have tried and he’s acting like– like he’s finally found the woman of his dreams.

Hope: And steffy has tried, too. Katie as well. I mean, they’re all trying to get him to listen to reason, but he is shutting everyone down.

Liam: Well, everyone so far. There’s one person who hasn’t talked to him yet. One person he values and respects more than just about anyone.

Hope: Liam actually does have a good point, mom. Look, we all know how close you were with bill and if anyone might be able to get through to him and get him to stop this insanity, it would be you.

Brooke: So, you said wyatt was with you when you talked to your father? That mean he knows what taylor did?

Liam: He knows that my dad blackmailed steffy and finn. He does not know about what.

Hope: Same with aunt katie.

Brooke: Well, I’m not one for advocating secrets, but I can also understand why taylor wouldn’t want the whole world to know. Only a few of us do and she still feels horrible about that night.

Hope: You two really are becoming close friends, aren’t you?

Brooke: Yeah, it’s amazing. I was just talking to her before I came over here. She’s– she’s really upset that that night is being used this way.

Liam: Yeah, even though my dad promised that he wouldn’t breathe a word of it.

Brooke: As much as taylor doesn’t want anybody to find out, she’s really tempted to just confess. Just take all the power away from sheila. Steffy and I told her that’s not a good idea.

Liam: Then that’s understandable ’cause if my dad’s paying off the judge, like, what’s the point? Like, what good does it do for taylor to turn herself in if it doesn’t mean sheila’s gonna do time, too?

Hope: Is there a way to prove that judge mcmullan has been bought? Or at least a way to assign a different judge to the case?

Liam: I don’t– I don’t think that would do any good because knowing my dad, he’d be willing to pay off every judge in town as long as it kept sheila out of jail.

Brooke: God. What? He’s that convinced that he is in love with her? In love with this monster? I mean, it wasn’t so long ago where he professed his love to me.

Liam: He’s a different person now. You should see him, brooke. I mean, and you will. He’s hollow, he’s muted, he– he– he lets sheila speak for him, it’s–

Brooke: Do you think she has something on him?

Liam: He swears no, she doesn’t, and it’s just that they’re… in love.

Brooke: Uh, okay. Okay. That’s it. That’s it, I have no choice. I’ve gotta go see him.

Hope: I think it will be a good thing. I mean, we all know how bill felt about you.

Liam: Feels. Feels about you. You really could be the one person that gets through to him.

Brooke: Yeah. I hope so. I hope we can convince him how wrong this is.

Hope: Mom, just please promise me you’ll be careful. Bill might not be alone and we all know you can never be too careful when it comes to sheila.

Sheila: Whatever you’re feeling, good or bad, I– I– I want you to turn to me. I wanna be the one that you confide in. It thrills me to think that– that I can be a source of– of positive things for you. I– if I could give you a percentage of what you’ve given me and I’m not talking just about helping me stay out of prison. You believed in me, you defended me, and you loved me, and I never thought I would ever feel that in my life again. You are a miracle, bill, you are my miracle. And what caused your relationships that have been damaged because you’ve chosen me. I can’t believe it. I think that you have that faith in what we can be, even after katie came here saying what she wanted to. And liam and wyatt attacking me the way that they did, and yet you never swayed. You stood up for me. And I know that had to take its toll, a huge toll on you. Maybe more than you realize. Maybe– maybe you are swaying. You know, I told you I’m a big girl and you can tell me anything, I– I meant that. If you want me to leave, I’ll leave. No arguing, no tears. I’ll live a happy life of freedom and forever grateful to you and in debt to you and I will always remember fondly that these moments we shared were so special to me. So, just say the word, okay? You say the word and– and I can be gone. You never have to see me again. There you go. What’s it gonna be? Do you– do you– do you want me to walk out those doors because if– if that’s what you want, that’s what I’ll do. Sweet pillows of softness!

Hope: Do you think we should’ve let her go over there alone?

Liam: Thanks. No, I think your mom has a better chance without us tagging along and making my dad feel ganged up on.

Hope: Yeah, but what if sheila really is over there?

Liam: Yeah, I know that you’re worried about what might happen.

Hope: Well, aren’t you?

Liam: I am, but I also know how much my dad cares about your mom and he would never ever let harm come to her.

Hope: That is the father that you used to know. Not the man that he’s turned into. I mean, I don’t even know who he is anymore. This whole situation is surreal.

Liam: I know, it’s weird, it’s hard to make sense of. I mean, I– I wanted my dad to find someone special, you know? I want him to have a loving, healthy relationship, but for him to think he’ll get that from sheila, like–

Hope: It’s scary how good she is at using people. I mean, to know how she has manipulated your father, someone who is usually so shrewd and cunning.

Liam: Yeah, she actually convinced him to break his promise to taylor to keep her secret. I mean, like– like, none of this would even be happening right now if my dad didn’t have that ammunition.

Hope: And it just all goes back to that terrible night taylor shot your father.

Sheila: So, what do you say? Are you having second thoughts? Do you want me to leave?

Brooke: Bill.

Sheila: Brooke.

Brooke: So it’s true? Everything I’ve heard about the two of you?

Sheila: I guess it depends on– on what you’ve been listening to.

Brooke: So you’d really do this, bill? You would threaten taylor’s freedom, you’d blackmail her to keep sheila out of prison.

Sheila: It keeps taylor out, too. It’s a win-win. And you can just keep staring daggers through me, but it’s the truth.

Brooke: I’m not here to talk to you. I’m here to talk to bill, so if you could just give us a minute.

Sheila: No, I know why you’re here. You wanna tell bill how horrible he is. The same way katie did and– and liam and wyatt, too. Steffy and taylor. It’s no surprise that you want a turn.

Brooke: You think that’s why I’m here? That I wanna tell bill that he’s a horrible person? No, sheila. I could never do that.

Sheila: Okay. Well, you know what? Why don’t you go ahead and give your speech because–

Brooke: Oh, my god, please!

Sheila: I’m sure it’s nothing we haven’t already heard.

Brooke: This is between bill and me and whatever you and I have to say to each other should be through the bars of a cell.

[ Sheila chuckling ]

Sheila: And what would that be? Have you committed some sort of crime?

Brooke: You know you’re damn well guilty for all the crimes that you’ve committed and you belong in prison. I don’t know what you did to get to bill, to have him risk everything that he cares about, but somehow you did. And I am here to put a stop to it, to make sure that bill comes to his senses. And to make sure that you’re hauled off and thrown in prison behind bars for the rest of your life. Mr. Clean magic eraser powers

Hope: Obviously, I don’t condone what taylor did to your father, but if he really wanted to make her pay, he would’ve pressed charges back then, not blackmail her all those years later in order to keep a psychopath out of jail.

Liam: Yeah, he– I mean, he also knows that taylor wasn’t herself, right? Like, she– she literally didn’t know what she was doing.

Hope: Certainly not. She was still reeling from the news of what she thought had happened to steffy. I’m sure when she went over to confront your father, she never intended to hurt him.

Liam: But my dad left a gun out. It was just sitting right there, rage took over, and she did the unthinkable.

[ Gun shot firing ] And I can say that because I thought I was the one who did it.

Hope: Or maybe it was because you convinced yourself because of how upset you were with what your father did.

Liam: Well, yeah, but that goes to show the cruel tricks our brains can play on us.

Hope: Especially after you’ve had a concussion.

Liam: It is strange, I mean, I still actually remember myself doing it and I think that’s just my mind’s way of coping with the betrayal, like, you know, like, I imagined– I imagined my father dead and– and then I imagined myself making that happen.

Hope: I know how upsetting that was for you, liam, but I think bill made quite a few enemies leading up to that shooting. I mean, remember how many suspects there were?

Liam: That’s why I’m really grateful that taylor confessed to my dad because for one, that couldn’t have been easy and two, if she hadn’t done that I– I would still probably be blaming myself for it.

Hope: Do you really think that bill is that calculating, that he has just kept it in the back of his mind all these years to use against her?

Liam: No. No, I don’T. I– I actually think that my dad meant it when he promised to keep quiet about what taylor did and it was sheila who came along and manipulated him into changing his mind.

Hope: But at the same time, liam, bill has chosen to align himself with her. He’s chosen to be with a murderer.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: I mean, he picked sheila over the safety of his own family. Liam, the threat of sheila still lingers because of the choices your father has made.

Sheila: I don’t appreciate this, brooke. You coming into my home saying–

Brooke: Your home?

Sheila: I’m the one living here and I don’t take kindly to you showing up unannounced like this.

Brooke: Oh, this is not your home, this is bill’s home.

Sheila: All right, now you’re just being rude.

Brooke: No, I’m not– I’m not being rude. Really, that’s not my intention. My intention is to come and help a friend out. Somebody that I see has gotten off track and needs help to get back on. Somebody I care about and share many wonderful memories with. You and I have been through way too much for me to just give up on you now.

Sheila: Yeah, you have been through a lot together. A lot of pain and heartache. Bill has memories of you, memories of you turning your back on him.

Brooke: Remember when you came over to me the day that ridge and taylor were getting married? You– you professed your love to meyo te you would do anything for me. Well, now is that time. I am begging you. You need to see sheila for who she really is. You say that you love me, and yet you claim to love this woman the same way? She’s opposite of who I am. I know what you need. I know because I’ve been there. And sheila is not the woman that you need. Take this off, bill. You think it’s protecting you, but it’s not. It’s clouding your judgement because you are a good man, bill. You’re a good man who deserves to have a good woman by his side for the rest of your life. And that’s not sheila because all she is gonna do is bring heartache. She’s dangerous. She’s gonna hurt you, your family, because that is sheila. That is all she knows how to do. You can prevent that, you know. All you need to do is pick up the phone, call the police, get them over here, and they will arrest her. They will throw her in prison. Come on, bill. Let’s put sheila behind bars today.

Bill: You’re right, brooke. Everything you’re saying. You’re right.

[ Relaxing music ]

Finn: The kids, they’re gonna have a great, safe time.

Steffy: Yeah, amelia has a whole day planned.

Finn: Unfortunately, so do I.

Steffy: Yeah, I– I have to get going too. Or convince you to come back to bed.

Finn: You’re not afraid you’ll fall back asleep?

Steffy: Not after that kiss. But you are right, I– I barely closed my eyes last night. I can’t believe sheila’s out there. She is a free woman and it’s all thanks to bill.

Bill: Mm.

Sheila: Good morning.

Bill: Good morning. How long have you been up?

Sheila: Just a little while. I was gonna go make breakfast, but I– I just– I couldn’t bear to move.

Bill: I hope you weren’t too uncomfortable sleeping on the floor.

Sheila: Not at all. I think it’s one of the best night’s sleep I’ve had in a long time, thanks to you.

Hope: So, are you going into work?

Liam: Uh, well, my dad’s not apparently. Sabrina said he called in sick again.

Hope: Oh, so he’s at home with sheila all day?

Liam: Dude, I don’t even know. I don’t know what he’s doing or thinking. I don’t understand the whole blackmailing finn and steffy to keep sheila out of jail thing. Now– and now, he wants to house that monster in his home, it’s like–

Hope: Do you really think he would tell police that taylor was the one who shot him?

Liam: Well, it’s my dad. He doesn’t make idle threats. He says he’s gonna do something, he does it. And now, apparently what he wants to do is everything he can to help sheila carter, so I don’t know.

[ Knocking on door ]

Wyatt: Oh, thank god you’re here.

Liam: Wyatt? Aren’t you supposed to be in san diego?

Wyatt: Yeah, well it’s bad enough dad’s not talking to me, you can’t just text me something crazy and say, “oh, we’ll talk “about it when you get home.” So, sheila’s out? She’s free and she’s mixed up with our father?

Wyatt: Dad and sheila?

Liam: That’s why he’s been so distant lately. And why we found her stuff at his house.

Wyatt: We thought she kidnapped him.

Liam: I know.

Hope: Well she’s done something to him.

Wyatt: Can you stop that?

Liam: Dude!

Hope: What?

Wyatt: Dad knows who sheila is, right? I mean, he would never like– I mean, this can’t be true.

Liam: Yeah, well, unfortunately it is. All of it.

Finn: We’re gonna look out for our family and each other, the same as always.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s why we refused to press charges, to protect my mother, but we didn’t think that sheila would be set free.

Finn: That was bill’s doing, not ours.

Steffy: If bill sides with sheila, she is more dangerous than ever.

Finn: What happened when you talked to katie?

Steffy: She couldn’t get through to him. We just have to snap him out of his involvement with sheila. But how?

Bill: Last night was incredible.

Sheila: For me, too.

Bill: I’ve never been with anyone like you before.

Sheila: Someone who truly and unconditionally loves you. Pain hits fast.

Wyatt: If dad was blackmailing steffy and finn to keep them quiet, what could he possibly have on them? I mean, what’s so bad that they would let that murderous psycho go free?

Liam: Honestly that– that doesn’t even matter right now ’cause it’s done, right? I mean, sheila’s out of jail. What– what’s important is dad’s involvement. He’s lost his way.

Wyatt: Lost his way? He’s lost his freakin’ mind! Okay? We need to do something. Who else knows about this?

Hope: Uh, well, steffy’s family, of course.

Liam: Um…

Hope: Us, uh… katie, carter.

Liam: Katie, carter.

Wyatt: So everybody but me?

Hope: Look, wyatt. So many people have tried to get through to bill and– and nothing has worked. He’s not listening to anyone.

Wyatt: Well, I texted him and he said he didn’t want to be disturbed.

Liam: You know what? I’m glad you’re here because you and me, we have to go over there as a united front and– and make dad put an end to this.

Wyatt: Fine. Yeah.

Liam: All right.

Hope: Please be careful. Your dad is not in his right mind right now and you can never trust sheila, okay?

Liam: Yeah, I know. Okay.

Hope: All right.

Wyatt: You’re driving.

Finn: I wish I could stay with you today.

Steffy: I’d love that. But we can’t put our lives on hold because of sheila and bill.

Finn: She’s just gonna be emboldened with him on her side.

Steffy: She already is. The way she talked to me? The way she talked to katie? Sheila thinks she’s untouchable right now. We need to be careful.

Finn: I think she’s laser focused on bill right at the moment.

Steffy: It’s only a matter of time before she starts this delusional campaign to be part of your family.

Finn: Hey, no. That’s never gonna happen. Okay, bill and sheila went too far. Blackmail, bribery, we were never gonna give her a second chance. And bill just threw his away. Look, we’re gonna figure this out. Okay, we’re gonna make sheila pay for her crimes.

Sheila: Because I admire the man that you truly are. The man that wears the sword that symbolizes what he truly is about.

Liam: Oh, good. Won’t take our calls, but at least he’s not locking the door.

Wyatt: Hi. We knocked. You didn’t answer, we got worried.

Liam: Where’s sheila?

Wyatt: Yeah, is she here? Because we really need to talk to you.

Liam: And we need you to listen. I– I don’t know what’s going on with you, but– but you are making decisions that are putting your family in danger.

Wyatt: Mm-hm.

Bill: There’s no danger, liam. That’s the beauty of this. We all move on and nobody gets hurt.

Wyatt: What? Who are– okay, we are concerned about you, dad.

Liam: Yeah, what– why haven’t you been returning my calls? Why did you tell wyatt to leave you alone?

Bill: I’m not alone.

Wyatt: Then she is here? She is here. Okay. Fine. Whatever. We’re gonna make this quick and simple. Liam.

Liam: All– all right. Okay. Dad, whatever’s going on with you and sheila carter, you have to stop it. Like– like here, like, right now. Mckenzie: Eliza, she’s the little ray of sunshine.

[ Thunder cracks ]

Steffy: Oh, my god, sheila! Yeah, we haven’t been able to call the police.

Bill: No one is calling the police. Sheila deserves a second chance. I’m moving on. I’m moving on with someone that I can’t hurt.

Steffy: Move on! But know there will be bars between you because this woman is going to jail. I am pressing charges and she’s gonna suffer in there for the rest of her life.

Bill: You’re not pressing charges. Your mother will spend her life in prison unless sheila spends the rest of her days as a free woman. That is my deal. Take it or leave it.

Hope: Oh, uh, sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt, I actually didn’t think you would be in today. Uh, I was just going to drop this off, but I can come back another time.

Steffy: No, no, it’s fine, come on in. I need to work, focus on something that’s not driving me crazy.

Hope: I get that it’s probably hard to concentrate right now with everything going on.

Steffy: Yeah, tell me about it.

Hope: Look, steffy. No one would blame you if you just want to be home with your family right now.

Steffy: I’m trying to keep things normal. What’s safe for the kids. I mean, if sheila’s out there, she’s gonna be a problem for a long time. For all of us.

Hope: Look, I know this isn’t how you wanted things to work out, but you and finn were in an impossible situation.

Steffy: Yeah, I– I can’t– I can’t even believe it, hope. What the hell is going on with bill? Even katie can’t get through to him.

Hope: Okay, see, that is the part that shocks me the most because katie is usually able to trigger some kind of conscience in him. You know, make him see that his actions have ramifications.

Steffy: Mm-mm. Not this time. She is confused and frustrated as I am.

Hope: Well, I don’t know, maybe liam and wyatt will be able to talk some sense into him.

Steffy: Are they going to see him?

Hope: Yeah, they should be over at his house right now, they’re trying their best to break this hold that sheila has on him.

Wyatt: Dad, liam told me what happened. What you did to steffy and finn, I mean, what is going on with you?

Liam: Sheila carter is a literal threat to them, dad.

Bill: She’s not.

Liam: Yes, she is. Yes, she is, dad, she hurts people. That’s what she does and she’s gonna hurt you, too. Haven’t you been hurt enough? And– and this, my god, all of this, what you’re doing right now, isolating yourself, it’s only gonna make things worse.

Wyatt: Yeah, ’cause that– that’s what’s happening right now, isn’t it? The feelings that you’re feeling, the– the unappreciated, cut off, katie and brooke have finally shut you out of their lives, will’s away–

Liam: And now, look– look, you’re shutting wyatt and me out. Hell, you’re not even going into the office anymore.

Wyatt: That’s your happy place.

Liam: Dad, just– what you’re going through right now, it’s not something to be ashamed of. It’s actually pretty damn normal. People feel alone sometimes. People feel misjudged and– and misunderstood and we get it. It’s natural, yeah. You’d wanna– you’d wanna pull away, you’d wanna protect yourself.

Wyatt: That’s okay, just don’t shut us out.

Liam: You can come to us about– about this or anything else. We want to help you.

Wyatt: Dad, we love you.

Liam: I mean we’re– I mean we’re your sons, for god’s sake. We’re flesh and blood. We’re here for you, you know?

Wyatt: But not sheila. Not that evil, awful person ’cause whatever– whatever she has on you, whatever she’s holding over your head, we can deal with it together, okay? You don’t have to play her game.

Bill: There’s no game.

Wyatt: Of– of course there is! Like, why– why else would you be doing this? What other reason is there?

Sheila: Love. That’s your explanation. I love your father and he loves me.

Steffy: Liam and wyatt are confronting bill?

Hope: Yes, and just so you know, wyatt was shocked when we told him that bill was trying to blackmail you.

Steffy: You told wyatt?

Hope: Well, not– not the details. Not that taylor shot bill, but he did wanna know how sheila was able to get out of jail and why you and finn decided to stay quiet.

Steffy: I’m sure he was surprised to learn the part his father played in this.

Hope: Yeah. What I don’t get is just how bill doesn’t see that he’s probably being manipulated by sheila. I mean, after every single horrible thing that woman has done.

Steffy: Yeah, and thanks to bill, sheila doesn’t have to pay for any of it. It’s sickening. It really is. Somehow, someway, she just lands on her feet.

Hope: This isn’t– this isn’t over yet.

Steffy: It feels like it’s never gonna be over.

Hope: I know, and I get how you would feel that way after everything sheila has done to our families over the years. I mean, from her fleeing genoa city to reinventing herself here. Marrying your grandfather. I mean, it’s just nonstop chaos and violence over and over and over again.

Steffy: Yeah. We had a chance to hold her accountable, we finally thought justice would be served and then bill jumps in and sheila gets away. I mean, she told everyone she wasn’t going back to prison. I didn’t believe it. I didn’t even think it was possible. There was no way she was gonna get away with this, but somehow she does. For now.

Hope: You’re not giving up?

Steffy: No. Sheila may think she won. Bill’s money and power will protect her, keep her out of prison, but I haven’t forgotten who she is or what she’s done or what bill threatened to do to my mother. That’s a mistake they’re gonna regret. Because I’m gonna make them pay.

Wyatt: You think my father took you in ’cause he’s in love with you? You’re crazier than I thought!

Sheila: Why?

Wyatt: Because it’s not true. Because it can’t be true.

Sheila: Is that because I am so unlovable?

Wyatt: Yes!

Liam: Nobody is talking to you.

Wyatt: Go away.

Liam: Dad. Dad. You don’t– you don’t love her. You– you love us. You love wyatt and me, you love– you love will, you love katie and brooke and your granddaughters, beth and kelly. That’s– that’s who you love.

Wyatt: Hell, you even love money more than you think you love her.

Sheila: You know, he did love katie and brooke. They didn’t love him back, not the way that I do, without reservations. Love him unconditionally. You know, they… they didn’t want him. They wanted to try to change him, they wanted to mute his passions and I embrace them. I admire the man that your father is. And he loves me.

Wyatt: Shut up!

Bill: Watch it, wyatt. When you walk in our home, you will show some respect.

Liam: Dad… she tried to kill steffy and finn. She… she poisoned brooke with alcohol. She should be in prison.

Bill: Sheila isn’t going anywhere. She’s staying right here with me. Our home. Our life. Sheila is my future.

[ Relaxing music ]

Finn: Ugh, this day.

Steffy: Doesn’t get worse than this.

Finn: We got an awful surprise today, but we’ll figure something out that puts sheila back behind bars.

Steffy: We have to. I mean, the thought of sheila out there free, it’s– oh, god, it’s enraging. And it’s all because of bill.

[ Sheila clears throat ]

Bill: You look beautiful. Then again, you always do.

Sheila: Well, I’m glad you think so. Is word getting out about my release?

Bill: Yeah. And my part in it. Got a bunch of outraged texts and calls from liam and wyatt. Well, if you need to do some some damage control with your sons, I under–

Bill: I don’T. I made it unmistakably clear that I am not available to be yelled at. It’s been a long day, and I’m ready to end it right here alone with you.

Sheila: Well, I really, really hope that we don’t have any more unexpected visitors.

Carter: Obviously, you’re very upset. Didn’t go well with bill?

Katie: Certainly not what I expected.

Carter: He’s still defending sheila?

Katie: Above everything and everyone else. What has that horrible woman done to him?

Carter: I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of you going to bill’s by yourself.

Katie: I know. I know, I just thought I’d have better luck on my own. I was… I was wrong. Nothing I said had any impact. Bill is totally under sheila’s spell.

Steffy: I was so sure even without our testimony, that sheila would be locked up for good. Instead, she’s playing house with bill. It’s ridiculous.

Li: Finn? Steffy? Are you home?

Finn: Mom? I thought you were at a medical conference. I rushed back as soon as I heard. Tell me it’s not true. Sheila’s been released from prison?

Sheila: Thank you.

Bill: My pleasure. I mean that. Seeing you smile. How happy you are.

Sheila: I’m over the moon. In this beautiful home, with my beautiful man, a completely free woman. My life doesn’t get any better than this. To the misfits. Finally finding the place where– where we belong. We were judged and ostracized, and it doesn’t matter anymore because they can go to hell. To hell with what they think. Because I have everything that I could ever want right here with you. I’m jonathan lawson here to tell

Katie: I– I just can’t even tell you how bizarre it was. I mean here was sheila, standing in this house that used to be mine, holding court!

Carter: It’s crazy. She should be in custody, not playing lady of the manor at bill’S. Was he receptive at all?

Katie: There were moments, you know, I’d catch a glimpse of the bill I know. I mean this is a man who’s always, always been about protecting his family.

Carter: Bill’s a hard guy to like, but I’ve always respected that about him.

Katie: I don’t understand why he’s doing this. I mean, I knew, I knew he was going through something really dark and deep, but I had no idea that he felt misunderstood and he felt rejected by brooke and me. But for him to do something like this? I mean, what happens when will finds out who he’s living with? Will knows. He knows everything that sheila’s done. He knows how dangerous she is. What is he gonna think? What is he gonna do? This is our son. How can bill be so reckless?

[ Katie sighs ]

[ Li exhales ]

Li: I’m so confused. Bill and sheila are in a relationship?

Steffy: We were shocked too.

Finn: Apparently, it’s been going on for a while.

Li: What is bill thinking, getting involved with that monster?

Finn: Look, we were just as blindsided as you are.

Li: Okay, bill and sheila aside, it still doesn’t explain why the judge let her walk. You two met with the judge, told your side of the story, how she left you for dead.

Finn: Mom, we didn’T.

Steffy: We couldn’T.

Finn: Look, we can’t get into particulars, okay? But bill blackmailed us into not pressing charges against sheila.

Sheila: This is quite possibly the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.

Bill: Then my work here is done.

Sheila: No. Your work is just starting.

Bill: Mmm. So, what do you want to do now that prison’s in the rear view?

Sheila: Well, I think I just wanna live for a little while, you know? As a totally free woman. Maybe figure out how to get back at the forresters– no. No, I am not going to put any thoughts of revenge in my mind. At least not tonight. Look at this! 24 hours ago, I was in a dank prison cell and now I am in a mansion in bel air. I knew I wasn’t going back to prison, but I’ve gotta be honest. I wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to avoid it. And then you came along. You’re a true miracle. A gift.

[ Music playing ]

Carter: Wanna get out of here? Clear our heads?

Katie: I actually wanna just stay right here with you, if that’s okay.

Carter: That’s very okay. Whatever you need.

Katie: It just doesn’t seem real, you know? I tried. I tried so hard to get through to him. To make him see who sheila really is. But it– I brought up his son, I brought up will, and it didn’t matter. It didn’t matter. He just stood there next to sheila, against me. He told me to leave.

Carter: He kicked you out?

Katie: I’m so worried about him. About bill and my son. I mean, I don’t want them anywhere near that woman. Bill is living with a psychopath.

Carter: You’re freaked out. You have every right to be, but I made you a promise. And I meant it. I’ll be there for you and for will as well.

Katie: Thank you.

Li: Bill blackmailed the two of you into not testifying against sheila? Dropping the charges? Oh, my god. What does he know about you two?

Finn: It’s not about us directly, but that’s seriously all I can say about it.

Steffy: Trust me when I tell you if we could’ve told bill to go to hell, we would have.

Li: Yes, of course. But that only clears sheila of attempted murder. Surely, the prosecutor could move forward with her prison escape.

Finn: We’re all but certain bill bought the judge assigned to sheila’s case.

Li: So, you’re saying there’s no way to put her back behind bars?

Finn: Not unless she commits a new crime.

Steffy: Even then, bill could just buy off another judge. It’s too risky.

Li: No! No. That’s unacceptable. You may not be able to, but nothing’s stopping me. I’ll testify against sheila.

Sheila: Bill, because of you, on this day, this night, my heart is just filled with so much joy. I’m still amazed that you gave me a chance.

Bill: I’m no stranger to what you’ve done. But who am I to judge? I’ve gone extremes many times myself.

[Helicopter blades whirring] I dumped ridge out of a helicopter in dubai.

Cool him off. He wandered around for weeks until he remembered who he was.


Sheila: And what about the time you blew up spectra fashions because you wanted to build a skyscraper? Thank god your son and sally were okay. You know one of the many things I love about the man you are? Is that if an obstacle pops up, you handle it. And you’ve got to admire that in a man.

Bill: Not every woman feels that way.

Sheila: Well not everyone knows you the way that I do. They don’t appreciate you the way I do. Look, I– I don’t– I don’t mean to make light of your pain, but nobody can understand it the way that I do. Because I suffer from the same abandonment issues. You know, being left over and over again. I does damage, it’s devastating.

Bill: No, no, no.

Please, please don’t leave.

Katie: I– I– I can’t

I can’t give you

what you want, bill.

I can’t give you what you need.

Bill: Katie, don’t go,

not yet.

Katie: It was a mistake

for me to come here.

Bill: But, look.

I– I can’t stand being alone

in this house,

and I can’t stand

who I am without you.

Katie: Goodbye, bill.

Bill: Don’t, katie. It’s the one thing I can’t take. People I love walking out on me.

Sheila: Yeah, well you know what? You are never going to have to worry about that with me. Because that is never gonna happen. (Vo) no matter what type of severe asthma you have,… tezspire can help yo

[Male narrator] These days there’s just so much to do.There’s the fun stuff, the not so fun stuff… and most of all the really important stuff, like getting screened for cancer. You got to do it and now it’s really easy. Just go to time to screen dot org or call 1-855-53 screen. We’ll answer your questions and help you find a cancer screening location near you. It’s the right thing to do and now’s the right time to do it. It’s time to screen.

Li: Maybe you can’t testify against sheila, but there’s no reason I can’T.

Finn: No, mom. You can’T.

Li: Why not? I was a victim too. Sheila meant to kill me that night.

[ Li gas[ Li gasping ]

[ Horn honking ]

Li: Back off you crazy bitch!

[ Explosion booming ]

[ Li shouting ]

[ Tires screeching ]

[ Water splashing ] If you won’t press charges, simple solution: I’ll do it.

Finn: I understand you wanting to make sheila pay for the heinous things that she’s done. We all do. But you can’t press charges.

Li: You can’t be suggesting we just let her go free.

Finn: Bill included you in the blackmail threat.

Steffy: Bill says he’ll also expose what you did to get finn out of the hospital.

Li: My god.

Finn: I know. It’s crazy. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you. Mom, you know how grateful we both are, but you broke laws to do it. And I am not gonna let saving my life come back on you like that.

Steffy: Finn’s right. Bill means what he says. He– he won’t listen to me. He is determined to burn our family to the ground so he can keep sheila out of prison. Like, it’s not worth the risk going up against him.

Li: How does she do it? How does sheila manage to get away with every single horrible thing she’s done?

Steffy: This is a temporary win for sheila and bill. No one threatens my family and gets away with it, not in the long run. I don’t know how, but I’m gonna figure out something. Sheila and bill are going down.

Sheila: I am so glad that I followed you that night on the beach. And look at where I’m at now. You have transformed my life. Look at me. I am wrapped in these incredibly strong arms. I feel warm, protected and loved. You are like my own personal miracle. Hey. You’re awfully quiet.U can talk, you know? I’m not gonna hurt you. And I’m not gonna use your vulnerabilities against you. You can’t hurt me, bill.

Bill: I’ve struggled for so long. Someone who has so much feeling so empty inside. Every time I thought I found love, it slipped away. Or I pushed it away. Katie, brooke.

Sheila: No. Look, they– they never appreciated the man that you truly are. All they wanted to do is change you.

Bill: So many years, I tried to fit in with the forresters and logans. Truth is I’ve never could. I’m a different breed from those people. Like trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. And I will never do that again.

Sheila: You’re not gonna need to with me, you never will. Because I admire the man that you truly are. The man that wears the sword that supplies us. What he truly is about. The man that I love.

Bill: Works both ways. What you’ve brought to my life. Appreciation, openness, acceptance. You’re what I need. I love you, sheila.

Katie: You could stop this right now.

Sheila: Now, why would he want to do that?

Katie: She’s done something to you. I can see that. You don’t have to let her hold you hostage.

Sheila: He’s with me of his own free will.

Katie: I don’t know why you’re blackmailing steffy and finn. I don’t know why. I don’t need to know why. But they’re terrified. They won’t testify against her because of your threats. And I don’t understand why you would do that, why you would use all of your power and your influence to defend her. To do what? To keep her out of prison because you’re in some kind of relationship. It’s just crazy. It’s ludicrous. I don’t believe it. I will never accept it.

Sheila: You don’t have a choice.

Katie: This is not the kind of man you want to be. This is not the man I fell in love with. This is not the father, the good father that I know. You’re letting her walk all over you. Why? Stop it. Snap out of it, bill.

Finn: Ever since sheila has come into our lives, it’s just been one nightmare after another.

Steffy: No. She’s not giving up. And now she’s free. Bill’s blackmailing us. When will this ever end?

Finn: I don’t know. But I’ll tell you one thing. I will not let her anywhere near us or the kids. Sheila is done hurting our family.


Liam: Yo, hello? Hey.

Steffy: Hey.

Uh, can we–

> Finn: Yeah, yeah, come in.

Hope: We just spoke to my mom, and apparently sheila’s been set free.

Liam: What the hell? How does that happen?

Hope: You had your meeting with the gentleman.

Liam: Weren’t you going to explain how sheila shot you and left you for dead?

Hope: So what happened? Was there some kind of mix up?

Finn: No.

Steffy: We wish.

Liam: Okay, so you did meet with the judge.

Finn: We were right there in his chambers.

Hope: And what, he didn’t believe you? I mean, sheila shot you both.

Liam: How does she get set free after that? What the hell happened?

Steffy: Your father happened.

Katie: This is not okay, and you know it. But you can fix it. You can fix it. Just pick up the phone and call the police. You’ve got to get her back into custody.

Sheila: Who do you think set me free?

Katie: Shut up. This is between bill and me. I know him better than anybody, and this is not you. You’re not blind. You’re not. You know, deep down, how messed up this is. You know about her, what she’s done, the horrible, horrific crimes that she’s committed. Come on, bill. Think about will, okay? Think about– think about your grandchild. Think about kelly. This woman– this woman was gonna leave her motherless. This woman was gonna take her mother away from her. She was going to let steffy bleed out in that alley. Steffy, who I know you care about. That’s who she is. You have vowed to protect your family. You do. That’s who you are. That’s who we need you to be right now. We need you to stand up and to protect us. Please. Protect us from sheila. (Music throughout)

Liam: Wait. Hold on a second. So… my dad is siding with sheila and blackmailing you?

Steffy: My mom’s freedom for sheila’s freedom.

Liam: He promised he would never say a word, that he would never go to the police.

Steffy: The most shameful night of my mom’s life. You know how much she regrets that night. Losing control and going over bill’s house.

Liam: You don’t have to explain to us. We were all there. We all went through it. It’s a traumatizing experience for everyone involved. And I know we all tried to move on from that.

Finn: There’s only a few people who know it was taylor who shot bill.

Hope: And so what, now he’s just trying to throw it back in your face?

Finn: You can see why we had to say silent about sheila.

Hope: As much as I hate sheila and… I want her to pay for her crimes, I just couldn’t risk my mom’s freedom.

Liam: Hey, no, we all get that. But, like, what about all the other stuff sheila did, all the other charges? She escaped from prison, for god’s sake.

Finn: Judge mcmullen, he concocted some wild story on how mike guthrie forced sheila to escape prison against her will.

Liam: What? That’s absurd. Why would he do that?

Finn: Your father.

Hope: Do you think he put the judge up to it?

Finn: There’s no doubt

Teffy: Bill has a judge in his pocket.

Liam: Oh, my god. Oh, my god.

Hope: Okay, well, does taylor know about any of this?

Steffy: Yes. I had to tell her. My mom wanted to do the honorable thing and turn herself in, but I begged her not to do it.

Finn: Especially since bill will just bribe whoever it takes to make sure sheila stays out of prison.

Liam: But why? What is the motivation for that? My dad hates sheila carter. He’s never said a single nice thing about her.

Steffy: There’s nothing nice about her. The only thing that’s good about her is that she gave birth to finn.

Hope: Well, exactly. So then why would bill back sheila?

Steffy: Bill and sheila are involved.


Katie: I know how important your family is to you. That’s what this is about. The sword, it’S… it’s about family. Protecting your family, the people you love. And that’s what we need you to do right now. We need you to protect us from a sociopath.

Bill: I would never let anything happen to my kids.

Katie: You need protection, too. You do, because she’s poison. She’s toxic. And I know you feel misunderstood and you feel rejected by me and by brooke and by everyone, but… but you, you are bill spencer. You are brave and you are smart and you are strong, and you know how to love. You know how to love. I know you do, because you loved me once. And I know how much you love your children and your grandchildren. I know it. She can’t give you that, bill. She can’t love. She will destroy everything you care about. She will destroy everything that’s good inside of you. Don’t let her do it. Don’t sink down into the sewer with her.

Sheila: You know what? I can take a verbal beating with the best of them, and I have stood by patiently and listened to you insult me. You’re wasting your time, katie. There is nothing that you can say. And quite honestly, I mean, you have no right telling him who he can and can’t be with. Bill has already expressed himself. He said he loves me. And I love him. We are building a future together.

Katie: The only future you have is behind bars. They will lock you up for shooting steffy and finn, and they will lock you up for almost killing li. And they will lock you up for escaping from prison. You will finally pay for all of your crimes. And you know I’m right. Tell her. Say something. Tell her I’m right.

If you have this…

Liam: Involved? Like… like in a relationship?

Steffy: Yes. We saw them kiss.

Liam: They’re, like, um…

Hope: Together.

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, I… I know it’s hard to believe.


Liam: My dad and sheila carter.

Steffy: Yeah, they’re like, uh…

Hope: Okay. I don’t know what’s gotten into bill’s head. Clearly, he is not doing okay.

Liam: Not doing– not doing okay? He’s lost his damn mind is what happened.

Hope: Well, bill has made some questionable choices in the past. But this? Sheila?

Steffy: I talked to bill. I did. I talked to bill, and I asked him if someone was putting him in this position, if sheila was lording something over him, but he said no.

Liam: Wyatt and i were over at his place. Man… this was right before he turned sheila in. And we found a wig, and we found an earring. And when we knew that it was sheila’s, we thought that it was her who was targeting him. But instead, it’s– it’s– oh, god.

Steffy: Bill is totally swept up in sheila. He is completely oblivious

Hope: Of all the women in the world, bill falls for sheila? And now he’s extorting you so that her charges get dropped?

Liam: I gotta– I got to talk to him. I don’t know why he’s doing this.

Steffy: Katie’s over there now. We’re hoping that she’s able to get through to him somehow.

Katie: Bill, I hate seeing you do this to yourself.

Sheila: Now that he’s moved on, you suddenly give a damn?

Katie: He is the father of my son. We are family. I will always give a damn.

Sheila: Yeah, well, if that were true, he wouldn’t have been left in this house all alone. Huh? You wouldn’t have left when he didn’t morph into the man you wanted him to be.

Katie: Our marriage was built on love. That’s something you’ll never know.

Sheila: You’re his ex, his former wife, and you don’t get to tell him how to behave anymore. You don’t get to say that. No, especially… after you walked out on him again. He begged you, katie. He pleaded with you. He did everything right, and yet you still rejected him. You had your shot. It’s my time now. It’s our time. Mine and bill’S.

> Katie: Yours and bill’s? You’re crazy. You are crazy if you think you’re gonna have a life with him. You’re not gonna stay one more minute in this house.

Sheila: Oh, yes, I am.

Katie: Bill, listen to me, please. We are family, okay? No matter what, we are. This house, this house… this was our home. That’s where we raised our son. You remember. You remember he had– he had his first steps right over there, and we we’d have friday night movies, remember? We’d eat too much popcorn. And all those times where I tried to cook dinner, but we ended up ordering it instead. You remember that. I know you do. Because they’re beautiful memories. And please, please, god, don’t let her poison them.

Sheila: That’s ancient history. You had your shot and you blew it. You’re not a strong enough person for a powerful man like bill. You want to know why we’re such a good team?

Katie: You are not a team. She’s using you.

Sheila: Using him? Because it’s hard to believe that a woman could actually want him for the man that he is and not work day and night to try to change him? So let’s face it, katie… you’re his past. I’m the woman in his life. So why don’t you do us both a favor and leave? Skin your face will envy?

Hope: So my aunt katie is at bill’s?

Finn: And she’s not alone.

Steffy: Sheila’s there, too.

Hope: Is that safe? For her to be alone with bill and sheila?

Finn: She insisted on going by herself.

Steffy: Katie feels as though she can only reach out to bill more than anyone.

Liam: At least now I know why he’s been so closed off.

Hope: Just wait until my mother finds out about this.

Steffy: If bill continues to allow sheila to roam free, all of our lives are at risk, including our children. Katie understands what’s at stake. She has to come through for all of us.

Katie: I may not live here anymore… but this used to be my home, and it is still my son’s home. And you do not have a place here. Will is at boarding school, and you walked out ages ago. You left him alone. No support, no compassion, and you walked out on the greatest man in the world. So don’t stand there thinking that you can make demands.

Katie: Bill… I know you’re lonely. I know you’re hurting. I just didn’t realize how much. But I do now. I do. You don’t have to do this, okay? You don’t deserve this because you are loved. You are, you’re loved. You have a family who loves you, and she will never give you that. We are here for you. And I know that you will be there for us. You just have to get her out. You just have to tell her to go. She doesn’t belong here.

Sheila: This is no longer your home. You gave it up ages ago, just like you gave up bill. You have no right coming in here, telling me to leave. You’re the one that needs to leave, katie.

Katie: You won’t let her kick me out of this house. I know you won’T. Tell her. Tell her to get out. Think about our son. Think about will, how much he loves you, how much he idolizes you. He wants to be exactly like you. Well, how are you gonna explain this to him? How are you gonna explain her? He knows. He knows what she’s done.

Sheila: He’s going to have to get to know the real me and not listen to the gossip.

Katie: Oh, you are delusional if you think I’m gonna let my child anywhere near you. I will die first. And bill will not allow it either, because he knows. He knows, deep down, exactly what you are. Bill… bill, please. Please! I am begging you on everything that is right and just in this world. Make her go. Put her back in jail. Please, bill, please… tell her to get out of this house. Please.

Sheila: Okay. Now, you tell me to leave and I’ll leave.

Bill: I think you should leave, katie.

Katie: You don’t mean that.

Sheila: You heard him. You need to leave.

Katie: What’s happened to you?

Sheila: What’s happened to him? He’s finally found love. For the first time in his life.


[Door slamming] Hey… I know that that wasn’t easy. Thank you, though. I felt heard and understood. For the first time, I… I really felt wanted. And accepted. But most importantly, is… I feel loved. I feel truly loved.

Daytime Soap Opera Short Recaps

B&B logo

Recap written by Suzanne

Sheila and Bill tell each other, “I love you,” while Steffy and Taylor watch with disgust. Sheila tells them that Bill’s love has changed her, but they don’t buy it. Taylor tells them that she might confess to shooting Bill so that they can’t blackmail Steffy and Finn any more. Alone, Sheila talks to Bill about it. She wonders if Taylor will confess or not. He assures her that they’ll deal with that if it happens. Sheila goes on and on about her past with the Forresters.

Carter and Katie are shocked when Finn tells them that Bill blackmailed him and Steffy in order to keep Sheila out of jail and that Sheila and Bill are now a couple.

Later, Bill has a flashback to telling Sheila that he loves her. Katie visits, in tears, and tells him how evil Sheila is. She can’t believe all that he’s done or that he’s with her. Bill says nothing the whole time Katie is begging him to make this all make sense. Sheila comes in and tells Katie that she and Bill love each other. He’s the love of her life, and she’s his.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: Well, you– you can’t begin to know what this means to me, hearing those words. Hearing you say that you love me.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Sheila: That’s all I’ve ever wanted. It’s all I’ve dreamed of and now, knowing that I am… that I– that I approached you on a beach, you– you didn’t recoil. You didn’t tell me what a monster I was. You heard me out and I heard you and still, I mean, to think that it would– it would lead to this. Falling in love, but it has. I love you and you love me and that is everything, Bill. That is everything.

Katie: Wait a second. Sheila is free because of Bill?

Carter: That doesn’t make any sense. There’s no mention of Bill being involved at all.

Finn: Sheila wouldn’t be a free woman if it weren’t for your ex-husband.

Katie: That doesn’t make any sense. Bill can’t just wave a magic wand and Sheila walks.

Carter: Yeah, as powerful as he is, Bill’s not even capable of that.

Katie: I mean, how could he have made that happen? And what possible reason could he have had?

Finn: Look. The last thing Steffy and I expected was for Sheila to walk free. We’re both shocked and confused and–

Katie: Wait, wait, wait. You told the judge everything and they still let Sheila go?

Carter: She has a list of charges and there’s not even a full trial? Finn, man, I– I don’t get it. Why?

Finn: Blackmail.

Katie: Sheila’s blackmailing Bill?

Finn: No. Bill’s blackmailing Steffy and me.

Katie: What?

Finn: That’s what this is all about. Bill’s blackmailing us to keep Sheila from paying for the crimes that she committed.

[ Katie sighing ]

Steffy: Bill, don’t let her do this to you. Sheila is using you. She knows nothing about love.

Sheila: Well, that’s not true. I’ve been unlucky in love, until now. You heard Bill. He loves me and I love him.

Taylor: You don’t know how to love.

Steffy: All you do is manipulate and destroy.

Bill: All right, stop. Both of you.

Sheila: God, why can’t we just stop this, all right? We are all very much aware of my past and I have made some– some horrible decisions that I am ashamed of, but I’m not alone, Steffy, with that. Now, we have all made mistakes, your mother included. I mean, Taylor made one that I’m sure she will regret for the rest of her life. Bill kept quiet about your mother shooting him. He forgave Taylor and moved on, so why is it so difficult for the two of you to do the same? I mean, we could just– we could go on and live our lives. Steffy, you love my son. And I– I love Bill. We love each other. They say that– that love changes a person and I already feel that happening for me. Can’t we just accept the situation, please? You’re gonna have to accept it. You have no choice.

Taylor: Why is that? Because you think there’s nothing we can do?

Sheila: There is nothing you can do.

Taylor: I don’t know about that. I can confess. I can go to the police. I can tell them what happened all those years ago. I was the one who shot Bill. I can do that. And then guess what? No more blackmail. And you go to prison for the rest of your life.

Carter: I mean, Bill can be ruthless, yes, in business, but… I mean, Steffy is the mother to his granddaughter. To put a knife to her throat, to yours, too…

Katie: What could he possibly he have on you that would be worth blackmailing you over?

Finn: I can’t get into the details, but what Bill’s doing is reprehensible.

Katie: I’ve known Bill for a very long time. We were married, we share a son and I’ve seen all sides of him, good and bad, but for him to do this, to protect Sheila, I– I just– I can’t even imagine what he’s thinking.

Finn: Apparently, Bill and Sheila are in a relationship.

Katie and Carter: What?

[ Katie sighing ]

Taylor: It’s a simple solution, really. I confess. Yeah, I– I lose everything, but if I were to allow you to blackmail my daughter and me, it would be so much worse. Because that would mean that Sheila gets away with shooting Steffy and Finn and all the lives that you’ve destroyed, and I– I– I can’t let that happen.

Steffy: Mom, please. You do not have to do this.

Taylor: No, but I do.

Steffy: No, you don’t.

Taylor: Yes, I do. Look, I– I– I should’ve come forward years ago because if I did–

Steffy: No, Mom, you need to stop blaming yourself. You were protecting me. Stop.

Taylor: From Bill. From Bill. Isn’t this ironic? Here I am protecting you again and I’ll– and I’ll– I’ll keep doing it. I am not going to let you and Finn and Hayes and Kelly be in danger. Because he’s allowing this woman to– to be out on the streets, to escape justice. I’m the only one that can stop this.

Steffy: No, you can’t, Mom. Bill already bought a judge. He’ll buy another and another. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep Sheila out of prison–

Sheila: And you will end up in jail for the rest of your life.

Steffy: Can you just shut it, Sheila? Shut it.

Sheila: You know, whether you believe me or not, I don’t want to see your mother go to jail. Taylor, you saved my life and I saved yours. I– why can’t we just live our lives? I mean, we can go on in peace and live in love and be with our families. Can you imagine your life without your grandchildren? Without your daughter or– or your son? And from what I understand, Thomas could really use his mother’s guidance right now.

Taylor: Don’t you dare use my son and do not talk about him right now.

Bill: That’s not she’s doing.

Steffy: That’s exactly what she’s doing. I can’t believe you’re defending her.

Sheila: Let’s just take a minute here, okay, and catch our breath. Let’s start out by acknowledging a fact, that the woman standing before you today is not the same woman that you feared and loathed.

Taylor: Because you’ve changed? No, Sheila. We’ve heard that before. We’re not buying it.

Sheila: Yeah, well whether you believe it or not, it’s true.

Steffy: Oh, you know nothing about the truth, Sheila.

Bill: Sheila will not be a threat to you, to your mother or anyone else.

Sheila: It’s true because I have everything I’ve always wanted. To be appreciated, valued and most importantly, loved.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Sheila: I suppose we should’ve expected it. Taylor turning herself in just to see me go back to jail, but the way Steffy was pleading with her to not go through with it… what do you think?

Bill: If something comes up, we’ll figure it out. Together.

Katie: This doesn’t make any sense. Bill is a lot of things, but he is not an idiot. He would never get involved with someone as diabolical as Sheila. Oh, we just heard. Sheila is free and it’s all because of Bill.

Finn: I’m glad you’re okay.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: I, uh, explained to Katie and Carter about the blackmail, but I didn’t get into details.

Katie: And we’re not asking. I just couldn’t be more stunned. I mean, I know Bill better than anyone. For him to defend Sheila and get her out of jail because he’s personally involved with her? I mean, it just– it can’t be possible.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s what I thought, but sadly, it’s true.

Taylor: Yeah, Steffy and i were just over at Bill’s and Sheila was with him.

Katie: I gotta talk to Bill. I gotta confront him.

Carter: I’ll go with you.

Katie: No, I think it’s best if I go by myself.

Carter: What if Sheila’s there?

Katie: I will handle her. The stakes are too big.

Sheila: It is unbelievable to me that in this very room, Taylor pulled a gun on you and shot you in the back. Thank god you survived.

Bill: Hm. I doubt a lot of people would agree with you. Especially now.

Sheila: Are you worried about what people think? Because I’m not and– and I don’t. Oh, wait. There was that one time where I came back for my son’s wedding and that did matter because I knew that the Forresters would be against me and that I was going to have to prove to them that I– I was a changed woman for them to accept me and let me be part of their family, but it really didn’t really matter because Steffy refused to accept me and, you know what? All of the Forresters didn’t and the Logans and that holds true to this day. But then, you came along. And this incredible thing happened between us. I never would’ve guessed in a million years that you would’ve been the man, the love that I’ve been looking for all these years, but you are. You always will be.

Steffy: You should have seen my mom. She really let Bill have it.

Taylor: Ugh. I mean, he’s– he’s blackmailing us. He’s blackmailing us so that someone as dangerous as Sheila is free. Free to terrorize the people I love.

Steffy: My mom still wants to turn herself in.

Taylor: Oh, there–

Steffy: Put an end to this.

Taylor: Yeah, well, there wouldn’t be anything to put an end too if I hadn’t lost control that night and shot Bill.

Steffy: Mom, stop. I know what happened is always gonna haunt you, but you can’t keep doing this to yourself.

Taylor: I think about it. I don’t even– I don’t even recognize myself. It’s– it’s like I– I don’t know who I was, you know? To actually pick up a gun, aim it and– and– and pull the trigger.

Steffy: Mom, you need to stop beating yourself up. Bill has lost his mind and he’s blackmailing us because he’s supposedly in love with Sheila.

Finn: What? Love?

Steffy: Oh, yeah. Bill professed his love to Sheila right in front of my mom and me. Like anyone could ever love a woman like Sheila. It’s like so vile. But, I guess the spell that she cast over him is working because he is committed to defending her. Bill is lost to Sheila and that is gonna destroy him. His love for her will destroy him.

Bill: Meeting you, the time we spent together, I finally know what that’s supposed to feel like. I love you, Sheila.

Katie: I know what happened. How Sheila avoided going back to prison, where she belongs. And you’re involved and I don’t– I don’t understand that. I’m just wrap my head around that and I can’t, so that’s why I’m here because I’m hoping that you can explain it to me because you don’t do anything without a reason. Steffy and Finn say that you’re blackmailing them and I– I– I don’t know why and I don’t really want to know what the specifics are, it doesn’t matter. I just– I’m just hoping that I could get through to you and maybe you could help me understand. I know you better than anyone. Maybe even better than you know yourself. You said that to me. You’ve told me that. And– and this is not you. Sheila Carter? Bill, you know. You know all of the horrific things she’s done. How can you defend her? Her presence in our lives. Her evil presence, it threatens all of us. Think about will. Think about our son. How are you going to explain this to him? How? How are you going to explain her? How could you even imagine her being anywhere near our child? [ Katie sighing ] I know you haven’t been yourself lately, and I’ve been really worried about you, I have and I know that you– you asked me to help you and I didn’t and I– and I wish I could take that back. I wish I could and I’m so, so sorry, but for you to do something like this, I– you’re the one who was responsible for getting her arrested and that was a good thing. That was good. And now Steffy and Finn are– are saying that you’re in some kind of relationship with her, which is crazy. It’s– it’s not possible. I get it. You’re– you’re depressed. I get it. You’re– you’re sad and you’re lonely and I know what that feels like, I do. I know what it feels like. It feels horrible, but I can help you. I can help you with that. You don’t have to turn to someone like Sheila Carter, you don’t. You don’t because she will hurt you. That’s all she’s good at. That’s what she does. You can’t allow her into your life and into this home. You can’t allow it, Bill.

Sheila: It’s too late for that, Katie. You passed up on the greatest man alive and he exposed you to a life that you could never dream of. He’s powerful and he’s passionate and he’s the love of my life and I’m the love of his.

[ Katie scoffing ]

Katie: The love of his life. You have to listen to me, please. Please, just listen. She doesn’t love you. She’s not capable of it. She destroys. And she will take everything you love and care about and she will break it. You have to get her out of your life. You have to. If you don’t, then we are at the mercy of her. All of us. You especially. You have to see that. Please tell me that you see that. Please tell me that you will do whatever it takes to send her back to prison, where she belongs.

[ Relaxing music ]

Steffy: Mom, don’t do it. Don’t confess anything to the police.

Taylor: That is the only way to take away bill’s power and you know it. He’s blackmailing us, steffy! He’s threatening to– to turn me in for shooting him years ago. I can’t live under that kind of threat! And even worse, sheila walking free? No. No, I can not let that happen. I will sacrifice my own freedom and– and– and– and my own safety before I– I sacrifice yours and my grandchildren’S. I will. Zero regrets.

Sheila: So, how’s it feel to have someone… forever in debt to you, hm? I’m a free woman, all charges have been dropped and it’s all because of you. Of course, you know that is going to ruffle some feathers. I mean, when they find out about us, are you ready for the mob that’s going to come knocking at your door? I mean, katie and– and brooke?

Bill: They both turned me down again and again.

Sheila: So, if either is upset by this, it’s just… too bad? It’s their own fault anyway.

Brooke: This can’t be real. I mean, there is no way a judge would let sheila go.

Katie: Especially after hearing from steffy and finn. I mean, you can’t tell me they didn’t make extremely credible witnesses.

Carter: I’m sure they did, but my contact was certain. It’s not some rumor he heard, it’s fact. Sheila carter was released.

Brooke: Ah, what?

Katie: Maybe the judge ruled that sheila was mentally unfit to stand trial. I mean, I could see that as a possibility. Maybe she’s in some kind of institution?

Carter: No, she was set free.

Brooke: How is that even possible? What the hell happened?

Carter: Well, maybe someone came forward with some new evidence? A way to justify her actions?

Brooke: Wait. You think that there’s somebody out there that’s willing to defend sheila?

Carter: There must be. Otherwise, she’d still be in prison. Someone’s responsible for this.

Katie: Question is who?

Bill: I probably burned every bridge I had siding with you.

Sheila: Bridges to people that always let you down. Unlike me, now I– I’m gonna be someone you can always count on. I promise. So if you excuse me, I am gonna go freshen up for the rest of our evening together.

Steffy: Say you go to the police. Say you make this huge sacrifice, it doesn’t guarantee that sheila will be arrested. Bill will do everything in his power to keep her out of prison. He’s lost his way, mom.

Taylor: Yeah.

Steffy: Clearly lost his mind.

Taylor: Clearly, clearly, but it frees you up to testify.

Finn: To a corrupt judge? Taylor, what’s the point?

Steffy: Bill has the judge bought and sold. Who knows who else is on his payroll? If you expose yourself, you’ll go to prison. I’m not letting that happen.

Taylor: All right. All right, I– I won’t go to police.

Steffy: Oh, my god. Thank you so much, mom. I couldn’t handle the thought of you going. I can’t lose you. I can’T.

Taylor: Oh, I love you so much. I… I am so– I am so happy that I get to be here with you guys. I– I– this house, your family that you made. It’s so filled with love. You know, coming back to L.A. Was probably the– the best decision I’ve ever made. Being here with you guys, my grandbabies, it’s– it’s been– it’s been so healing for me.

Steffy: For all of us.

Taylor: Yeah. I’m just sorry that I was away for so long.

Steffy: You’re here now. That’s all that matters.

Taylor: But I’m here now at the mercy of bill Spencer and he can take that away whenever he wants. My god. Do you think he has any idea how dangerous this is?

Steffy: No. Not until we figure out a way to get through to him, there’s really nothing we can do.

Taylor: You leave that to me. Ever leave your clothes in the dryer

Brooke: Even if somebody came forward on sheila’s behalf, if there was some kind of new evidence. Wait, what am I talking about? How could there be new evidence? Everybody knows what happened. There’s no denying that.

Katie: She claims that shooting finn was an accident, so maybe it has something to do with that? There was no intent to harm?

Carter: But there was intent to cause steffy harm. Just because finn jumped in front of a bullet doesn’t make the shooting an accident. And then, sheila turns her gun to steffy and shoots her too. No, it’s clearly intentional.

Brooke: Okay, well that’s what finn and steffy were doing. They were testifying to the judge and you’re saying a judge heard that, but they still let sheila go?

[ Katie sighing ]

Steffy: I can’t believe my mother even considered turning herself in.

Finn: She wants to protect you and the kids. Keep sheila away. I can understand. But hey, you got through to her. You don’t have to worry.

Steffy: But we have to worry about sheila for the rest of our lives. And bill. I mean, my mom is right. Bill has the power.

Finn: What do you think she meant? Leave it to her?

Steffy: Oh, no.

Finn: What?

Steffy: My mother said she’s not going to the police. Because she’s going somewhere else instead. Bill’S.

[ Taylor panting ]

Taylor: Where is she? Where is sheila?

Bill: Upstairs.

Taylor: Why are you doing this, bill? Why? Why are you standing behind her? Why are you trying to keep a psychopath out of prison? That’s what she is, you know? She is manipulative. She is dangerous. She has terrorized my family for years. Are you forgetting how dangerous sheila is? Are you forgetting what she’s done? What she’s done to my family? And to yours too. Your granddaughter. Sheila almost left kelly motherless with no remorse. Not a second thought. Come on, bill. Think about what sheila did to steffy and finn. The trauma that she caused. What she put them through. If you can think about that and still tell me that you don’t think that sheila should be in prison… you can’t! And I can’t allow it!

Sheila: Allow what? Hello, taylor. I brought in ensure max protein

Katie: Word about this is gonna spread fast.

Carter: Yeah. Sheila’s set free. You bet it will.

Katie: Okay, time for me to get to work. The press is gonna want a statement from forrester. I need to pay steffy a visit so we can all get on the same page, work out a game plan.

Carter: Can I go? Might be good to have a lawyer with you.

Katie: Ah, you just read my mind. I was just about to ask you.

Brooke: Is there anything I can do?

Carter: Warn everyone. Let security know about our new reality. Sheila’s not going to prison after all.

Katie: Let’s go find out why.

Steffy: Straight to voicemail.

Finn: Hey, look, maybe she’s with a patient, okay? Or she’s just–

Steffy: Or confronting bill.

Finn: Why don’t you look up her location, huh? Maybe that’ll give you some peace of mind.

Steffy: I hope she’s heading home. Oh, my god.

Finn: What?

Steffy: Her location is blocked. She never does that.

Finn: Okay, then just go. I get it. You gotta be with your mom. Just be safe, please.

Steffy: I will.

Finn: Okay?

Steffy: If bill provokes her, or worse, sheila. Oh, my gosh. My mom’s gonna call the cops and turn herself in. I gotta go.

Finn: Yeah, well just don’t let that happen.

Sheila: You know, it’s lovely to see you, taylor, but I’m sorry. What you not going to allow?

Taylor: You. Your freedom.

Sheila: You know, you should look at yourself. You’re so angry, you’re almost shaking and that’s not good for you.

Taylor: Oh, sheila, don’T. Don’t pretend that you care what’s good for me.

Sheila: But I do. I still want us to be friends.

Taylor: Oh, really? Because you’re trying to send me to prison. It’s not very friendly.

Sheila: It’s a simple understanding. Steffy’s silence for ours. You know, I understand you’re upset and there are a lot of people that are going to be–

Taylor: Upset? Sheila, I– I am disgusted that anyone would allow this.

Sheila: Wait a minute, you can’t blame bill for this because he finally found somebody that– that– that understands him, that’s going to put his needs first?

Taylor: No, no, bill. Come on. You are not this desperate.

Sheila: The heart wants what it wants. Not everyone is gonna understand that.

Taylor: Oh, my god. Are you gonna let her talk for you?

Sheila: Maybe bill is tired of talking, taylor. He finally found a woman that’s willing to step up and look out for him for a change. I will always have his back.

Taylor: Yeah. A murderous psychopath. That’s who you want by your side, bill? She shouldn’t be here right now, she should be in prison.

Sheila: The judge doesn’t think so.

Taylor: The judge was bought. At least, that’s my understanding and I’m pretty sure I’m right. Otherwise, you wouldn’t get away with trying to kill steffy and finn.

Sheila: You know what? We have been through this before. What happened was a terrible accident. I never meant to harm anyone.

Taylor: Yes, you did. Yes, you did. Do you hear her, bill? She’s trying to be the victim.

Sheila: Maybe because I am. I know that you don’t want to believe that. No. You don’t want to believe anything that you and the forresters have put me through. The misunderstandings. The way you have shunned me. You cast me aside. You haven’t even given me a chance. No one’s given me a chance. Until now. Until bill. Kids can change minds…

[ Door banging ]

Finn: It’s open, amelia.

Katie: Finn? Hey.

Finn: Katie? Carter. What are you– you guys heard.

Katie: Yeah.

Carter: A friend from the courthouse tipped me off.

Katie: Is steffy here? I need to know how to handle the press.

Finn: No, she’s not. And um… uh, honestly, she probably doesn’t want to speak to reporters right now. She’s, you know, still in shock.

Katie: Yeah, we all are. How the hell was sheila set free?

Finn: Well, you can thank your ex-husband.

Katie: Bill?

Taylor: Bill, you’re just… you’re going through a crisis right now. That’s what this is. You just– you need someone to talk to and I–

Sheila: Please don’t diagnose him. He’s fine. We both are.

Taylor: No. No, you’re not.

Sheila: Oh, no. Of course. That’s right because it can’t be true. I mean, no one is allowed to appreciate me or to find the good in me or care about me. Until bill.

Taylor: She’s using you.

Sheila: No, you know what? I know why this is difficult for you to understand because this did happen so suddenly. We– we– we know that. But don’t question if this is true because it is. I know how difficult this must be for you because let’s just face it, ridge never put you first. You’ve never had what I have and I really do wish that for you though, taylor. That you find a connection and– and this kind of love.

Taylor: Oh, my god. Shut up, sheila.

Sheila: I love bill and I have never felt this way about any man my entire life.

Taylor: Come on, this isn’t– I– I don’t believe you. I don’t believe this.

Sheila: Why can’t we just get on with our lives, huh? Why can’t we just accept this and both live in– in peace? You accepted me before. You gave me a chance. I think you can find that in your heart to do that again.

Taylor: You know what? I did. I did. I did accept you. I– I believed in you. I really did. And then you put a bullet in my daughter and left her for dead, lied about it and played the victim, so yeah, you’re gonna have to forgive me if your happiness isn’t something I particularly care about. I don’t give a damn about your happiness. I just want to see you behind bars.

Sheila: You know what? That’s the difference between us. Because I don’t wish that for you. I don’t want you to say or do anything that will keep you in prison for the rest of your life. Keep you away from your grandchildren and your children.

Taylor: Bill, what I did to you, in this very room all those years ago, it was awful. It was really awful. But so is blackmailing me and my daughter to keep this pathological criminal on the streets. Look, she says that she has feelings for you, but honestly, I don’t think she’s capable of having feelings, but she can sure manipulate you into feeling sorry for her. I know she did with me. Come on, bill. She has hurt so many people. She has destroyed so many lives. You are smarter than this. I know you are. Stop this. Tell her! Tell her this is all a lie!

Bill: Taylor wants the truth. And I’m sure you do as well.

Sheila: I do.

Bill: The truth is I… thought I knew what it felt like to commit myself and to have the complete and utter devotion of a woman in return, but I was wrong. Meeting you, the time we spent together… I finally know what that’s supposed to feel like. I love you, sheila.

Sheila: You love me? That’s all I ever dreamed of. That’s all I’ve ever wanted. Is to be loved.

Taylor: Because of me?

Steffy: Mom, we didn’t have a choice. If we told the judge that sheila shot us, then bill would tell the cops that you shot him all those years ago.

Taylor: Why? Why? He promised he would never say anything.

Steffy: Now, he won’T.

Taylor: What?

Steffy: Remember the night with the storm?

Taylor: Yeah.

Steffy: Sheila showed up here.

Finn: We were about to call the police when bill appeared and stopped us.

Steffy: Yeah. Bill told us to let her go, and when we refused, he blackmailed us. He tied sheila’s freedom to yours.

Taylor: My god. Why? Why would he do this?

Steffy: You’re not gonna believe this, mom, but something’s going on between sheila and bill.

Sheila: I’ve been hiding for so long, I almost forgot what freedom felt like. I could– I could just scream with relief, joy and gratitude. I– I knew you said that you would get me off… I believed it. I just, there was a part of me that was– I was still scared. When I finally heard the judge say those words, “you are free to go,” I just– I couldn’t believe it. Yes. Look at me. Here I am. A free woman again.

Bill: Freedom looks good on you. A lot better than that disguise.

Sheila: Thank you. I appreciate it. And you are the reason why I am a free woman.

Katie: So, I’m assuming someone is keeping ridge in the loop?

Brooke: Steffy talks to him the most.

Katie: But you’ve heard from him too, right?

Brooke: Yeah. A few times. He’s still travelling. I think this time away has been really good for him.

Katie: For you as well. I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen you so at ease. I really admire the way you’ve handled this, brooke.

Brooke: Why, thank you. Taylor and I were just talking about what a difference it’s made.

Katie: Yeah, well, you’re talking. You’re not smearing paint and cake all over each other.

Brooke: Oh, yeah. It’s amazing. For so long, we’ve been adversaries, and then we just took ridge out of the occasion and I could see how much we actually have in common. We love our kids, we’re so devoted to them, to our careers. We’re fiercely protective of our families.

Katie: Well, you’ve had to be with sheila carter around. But today, that’s all going to change after steffy and finn give their testimony to the judge, sheila won’t be a threat ever again.

Brooke: Thank god.

Sheila: I– I’m never going to forget the look on steffy’s face when the judge dropped all the charges. I really think she and finn thought he would keep me locked up.

Bill: If they testified, he would have.

Sheila: Yeah, but you made sure that they didn’T.

Bill: They thought he’d keep you in custody anyway.

Sheila: For what? Breaking out of jail? Mike changed his story. He forced me out of there and the judge said that he even had video evidence or was that just the way he was supposed to interpret it? This is unbelievable. Everyone thought that my case was going to be open and shut, but there was no real evidence. I mean, there’s no video footage of the shooting. No forensics. And the only eye witness chose to not testify against me. And that was because of you. My hero. You really are my hero.

Taylor: So, something is going on between bill and sheila? Did you mean like… romantically?

Steffy: Yeah.

Taylor: No, no, no. Bill called the police on sheila. He’s– he’s a hero. He turned her in.

Steffy: After making sure we would testify against her. They planned the whole thing.

Taylor: Okay, okay. So, bill’s loyalty is to sheila carter, the woman who almost killed you both? Kids can change minds…

Katie: Gosh, I didn’t realize how stressed out I was about sheila until she was caught.

Brooke: Oh, I know. The feeling is incredible.

Katie: Taylor and her family must feel the same way.

Brooke: I’m sure they’ll feel even better once finn and steffy give their testimony. Sheila will be locked away for good.

Katie: Thank god.

Brooke: Then, you can go back to focusing on your love life.

Katie: I’m just trying not to overthink it.

Brooke: Well, this gorgeous, intelligent, luscious c-o-o of ours has been thinking about you.

Katie: Has carter said something to you?

Brooke: Well, maybe you should ask him yourself. Oh.

Katie: Oh, hi.

Brooke: Hi there. We were just talking about you.

Katie: What is it? What’s wrong?

Carter: I have some shocking news.

Katie: What?

Carter: Sheila carter has been released from jail.

Sheila: And you’re happy for me, aren’t you?

Bill: Of course I am. I can see how relieved you are.

Sheila: It’s– it’s unbelievable. I mean, to think that I could walk out that door and there’s nothing that anyone can do to me? That I don’t need a disguise or– or to fear being caught? I’m no longer a fugitive. I’m also not a monster. I know I’ve made mistakes. I’ve realized that. Big ones. But I did it out of fear. I hurt the ones that I love, but it wasn’t intentional and I am not evil. You know that. And you looked into my eyes, into my heart and you understand the woman that I truly am. And you didn’T… you didn’t hold my past against me. Or my terrible reputation. You understood me and that strength and that… and that intense passion that we share. You never looked at me like I was a villain. You gave me another chance and for that, I am going to be forever grateful.

Taylor: Okay, so– so sheila’s a free woman because of bill spencer?

Finn: We’re as sad and sickened as you are.

Taylor: Oh, my god. This can’t be happening! She left you in an alley to die. She held you hostage! She almost killed li and now she’s free to walk? She’s free to go on with her life?

Steffy: We didn’t think that was a possibility, mom. There were other charges.

Taylor: Exactly! Yes! There were! She– she escaped from jail. The judge doesn’t need your testimony to hold her for that.

Finn: Except she didn’t break out.

Taylor: Yes, she did!

Finn: N– not if you believe the story that was concocted claiming that mike guthrie forced her to leave with him.

Taylor: Mike guthrie, her accomplice.

Steffy: Based on a sworn affidavit, it was his idea to bust her out. Sheila was kidnapped.

Taylor: Now, they’re making her the victim?

Finn: Apparently, there’s security footage.

Steffy: The whole thing is bogus, mom. Bill is behind all of it. He has the judge bought and paid for. He orchestrated the whole thing.

Taylor: What is he thinking? He’s kelly’s grandfather! Does he have any idea how dangerous this is for all of us?

Steffy: Bill’s clearly lost his mind, mom. And he will do whatever he can to protect sheila.

Taylor: You and my grandbabies are the ones that need protecting. Hayes! You know she’s gonna try and go after him. You know she is! There’s gotta be another way to make her pay for what she’s done. There’s only one way that I can think of and we both know what that is. Hi, I’m jason and I’ve lost 202 pounds on golo.

Brooke: There is no way. It can’t be true.

Carter: I didn’t believe it either.

Katie: Sheila attempted murder.

Brooke: She needs to be locked up. She was.

Carter: Now, she isn’T.

Katie: How do you know this?

Carter: I got a call from a colleague at the courthouse.

Katie: I– I don’t understand what’s going on.

Brooke: Okay, wait. Finn and steffy were just there. They were going to give their testimony to the judge about sheila shooting them.

Katie: Not only that, she escaped from prison. She faked her own death. They can’t just let her go.

Brooke: She is a dangerous criminal. She needs to be behind bars.

Carter: I agree, but that’s not what happened. Sheila was released. She walked out of that courthouse totally free.

Sheila: So, how long before they start showing up with pitchforks and torches?

Bill: I don’t know and I don’t care. I told security to let them through. Get it out of the way.

Sheila: Yeah, but you know that they’re not just coming for me. Bill, once they find out I’m here, you’re gonna be in for it too. You realize I didn’t want it to be like this, not for any of us. What happened in the alley that night really was a terrible, terrible accident. I love my son. He’s my flesh and blood. I love steffy too. Just really wish things could’ve been different.

Steffy: No. N– no. No. I’m not listening to this. What’s done is done.

Taylor: Yes, but steffy, I can undo it.

Steffy: No, you can’t! I won’t let you.

Taylor: Listen, I know that you are just trying to protect me and I love you so much for that, but I am not going to put my family in danger.

Steffy: No, you aren’t, mom. Sheila is the danger.

Taylor: Yes! Yes, she is and she needs to be in prison. Finn, I am so sorry that you had to learn what happened that night. I gave into my– my darkest, most uh– most violent instincts and I… I committed a horrible crime.

Finn: And I know why.

Steffy: Mom, you weren’t yourself when you shot bill.

Taylor: No. I know that wasn’t me. I just– I– I can’t believe that bill is– is blackmailing you to stay quiet so you won’t testify. It doesn’t make any sense. So much for him keeping his word about what happened that night and it’s all to defend sheila carter, a literal psychopath. My god. I can’t let that happen. I can’T. I will confess. I will confess to– to shooting bill and he’ll have nothing to hold against you. You– you can tell the judge exactly what happened in the alley that night and then sheila will spend the rest of her life rotting behind bars, where she belongs. Having diabetes can raise a lot of questions.

Sheila: I really was hoping I could get through to finn and steffy and show them that we really could co-exist regardless of our past. Finn is my son and I… I love him. He’s of my blood and hayes is my grandson and we’re connected and nothing is ever gonna change that. I don’t know. Maybe I was just hoping for too much. You know, I was just being naive.

Bill: It’s hard to give up on family.

Sheila: Yeah, but that’s all I ever wanted. Even– even that night in the alley, I– I begged steffy to– to try and accept me. Not turn my son against me and now, all I want is to be forgiven. Now, I just think that that day is probably never going to come.

[ Bill sighing ]

Bill: I can’t promise you that you will be part of finn and steffy’s lives, but I give you my word, you’ll never have to worry about your freedom. I’ll do whatever it takes to protect you, keep you out of prison.

Sheila: You are an incredibly generous man, bill spencer. And what you’ve done for me is more than money could ever, ever buy. You’ve given me my freedom and my future. I owe you my life.

Taylor: Sheila and bill will not get away with this.

Steffy: They already are. Sheila’s out. She’s roaming free.

Taylor: Okay, not for long.

Steffy: Mom, you weren’t there. You didn’t hear the things bill was saying about sheila.

Taylor: No, but I can– I can hear the fear in your voice. I can see it on your husband’s face. Knowing that sheila is out there, wondering when she’s gonna snap again, what she can do to my children and grandchildren?

Finn: I won’t let that happen.

Taylor: No, I’m going to make sure that it never happens. I am going to go baker, I’m going to tell him exactly what happened the night bill spencer was shot. That I was in a maternal rage. Every– everything inside of me, I just– I just lost it. All I could think about in that moment was– was wanting bill out of our lives for– permanently. I have tried for so many years to just try and make some kind of peace for what I did, but I can’T. I have to come forward. I have to say what I did. I do.

Steffy: No, no, no, no.

Taylor: For everybody.

Steffy: I know you. You wanna do the right thing, but what you’re suggesting might not even help. We told you. Bill owns the judge. Mom, if you confess, you could go to prison and sheila, she still might be free. How is that protecting our family?

Finn: Look, if you want to keep your grandkids safe, help us keep sheila away.

Taylor: No, I want her to be away forever. I– I want her to go to jail.

Steffy: Mom, you are a good person. We need you. Kelly and hayes need you. Douglas needs you. We can’t lose you. You can’t– you can’t say anything. Promise me you won’t say anything about shooting bill. Your future, your freedom, is not worth putting sheila away.

Judge craig: Case dismissed.

[ Gavel bangs ]

Judge craig: That’s it for today. Please remove ms. Carter’s handcuffs. Escort her from my chamber. She’s free to go.

Steffy: No, no, no. This is– this is wrong.

Finn: Your honor.

Steffy: This is wrong. She– sheila’s dangerous. She– she faked her own death. She hid from the police. This is wrong. She can’t be free. No, you have to do something. No! You can’t do this.

[ Inaudible ]

Steffy: Sheila’s free to go?

Finn: You’re just gonna let her walk out of here?

Judge craig: You won’t testify. There’s no other physical evidence that links Ms. Carter to the crime scene. No other witnesses, just the two of you who’ve decided not to press charges. And like I told you, as far as the escape goes, there’s new evidence that’s been brought to light that clearly implicates mr. Guthrie in forcibly removing her from custody. And with no other claims being brought forth, I have no choice. All charges are dropped.

Attorney: Thank you, your honor.

Judge craig: Ms. Carter will be in her cell awaiting official release.

Steffy: No!

Finn: Look, you can’t just– you can’t do this.

Steffy: No, you can’t let her go.

Judge craig: That’s all for today.

[ Sighs ]

[ Knocking on door ]

Judge craig: Come in.

Bill: Your honor.

Judge craig: Bill.

[ Birds chirping ]

Taylor: Yeah, I can see you again tomorrow at 10:00. Does that work? I know. Don’t forget you’ve survived a hundred percent of your worst days. Today is no different. Okay. See you then. Bye. Hi.

Eric: Hi, taylor.

Taylor: Ah, look at me taking over your office. I’m sorry, I had to– I had to call a patient. My lunch with brooke went a little longer than expected.

Eric: Wait, wait, wait. You had lunch with brooke?

Taylor: I did. And it was really fun.

Eric: I’m delighted to hear that.

Taylor: Yeah. You know, today is just a– it’s just a good day all around. You know what? I bet sheila is in front of the judge right now as we speak. And after all this is done, she’s gonna be back in prison where she belongs. All thanks to steffy and finn.

Eric: A judge called a preliminary meeting about all this?

Taylor: Yeah. Yes. It’s just protocol. I– I don’t know. But it’s kind of poetic justice that steffy and finn are gonna be the ones to bring sheila carter down.

Eric: Yeah. Well, it’s about time. She’s caused enough trouble for both of our families.

Taylor: Yes. It’s gonna feel so good to know that we don’t have to worry about her, ever again.

[ Door buzzing ]

Officer: Make yourself comfortable. I’ll get your personal effects. Once the paperwork is done, you’ll be free to go.

Sheila: Oh my god, I am really getting out of this dump.

Officer: Won’t be long now.

[ Sheila laughing ]

[ Door buzzing ]

Sheila: Mike. Oh, you came to say goodbye?

Mike: So, it’s true? You’re going free? I’m stuck in this place and you’re getting out?

Bill: It’s good to see you in person, craig. Trust that julie and audrey are well?

Judge craig: Still reaping the benefits of those two weeks on your yacht. The stella maris is just– it’s magnificent, bill. That’s the best vacation my family ever had. The mcmullens will always be indebted to you.

Bill: It was my pleasure. And by the way, I hired a new chef. She is magnificent. Please take the family out again, anytime.

Judge craig: Well, your continued generosity, uh, is appreciated.

Bill: You can count on it. As I’m sure I can count on yours.

Judge craig: I’ll have julie call and arrange the night when we can have you over for dinner. What do you say?

Bill: Sounds good. And thanks again for today.

Judge craig: Well, with the evidence you provided, what other choice did I have? I’ve got a hearing.

Bill: You mind if I make a phone call before I go?

Judge bill: No, make yourself at home.

Eric: Taylor, when I first came in, you were on the phone with a patient. Do you need to do more of that? ‘Cause you can use the office across the way.

Taylor: Oh, thank you. No, I am done. I can’t wait to get back to steffy and finn’s and get the official word that sheila is finally out of our lives.

Mike: So, you’re sailing off into the sunset and I’m stuck in this place.

Sheila: I thought you’d be happy for me.

Mike: Well, at least I’ll have my memories of our time together. Get me through the long nights in here.

Sheila: Oh, mike, you are so sweet.

Mike: Of course I’m happy for you. You shouldn’t be locked up. I sure am gonna miss you.

Sheila: Yeah, well, we do have a way of running into each other, don’t we? Maybe that’ll still hold true.

Mike: Hell of a move, by the way, getting bill spencer in your corner.

Sheila: That just– that just happened.

Mike: I know you, sheila. You made it happen and it was genius. Hey, just come see me every once in a while. Oh, no, listen, that’s probably too much to ask. Why would you voluntarily ever come back into this place? But it sure would mean a lot to me.

Sheila: I’ll try. Just depends on where my life is taking me at the time.

Mike: Well, wherever that is, think about me, in the yard, in my cell, loving you always. I never stopped having feelings for you, sheila. Can I ask you something?

Sheila: Sure.

Mike: One more thing.

Sheila: What?

[ Slapping ] You bad boy.

Mike: Yes, I am.

[ Sheila laughing ]

[ Door opens ]

Officer: You’re free to go.

Sheila: I guess this is it. I really thank you for everything, mike. I really mean that.

Mike: I love you, sheila. I’ll wait a lifetime for you.

Bill: That’s good to hear. I’ll have my people send over the contract. Yeah, you, too.

Steffy: You. You! I should have known.

Finn: Whoa, whoa, hey, hey.

Steffy: Oh, my god. You were the one. You’re behind guthrie’s affidavit. The compelling evidence of him forcing sheila out of jail.

Finn: You own the judge.

Steffy: You somehow got him assigned to sheila’s trial.

Bill: You did the right thing not testifying, not pressing charges.

Steffy: Oh, my god. I can’t believe you’re doing this, bill. The length you’re going to. For once in your life, can you just not lie? Tell me the truth. Are– is– is sheila blackmailing you? Is she threatening someone that you love?

Finn: Look, you bought a judge to free sheila!

Bill: There’s no point in fighting this. You will lose. More importantly, taylor will lose.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Bill: Sheila is a free woman.

Steffy: Oh, my…

Bill: So, your mother will maintain her freedom as well.

Steffy: I’m begging you, can you just come to your senses and realize what you are doing is wrong? Sheila is using you. We can work together. We can– we can call the judge and– and we’ll find a way to get this dangerous psychopath off of the streets. Oh. You obviously don’t care about me. Or finn. Or your granddaughters. Do you realize if sheila is free, kelly and beth are in harm’s way. They are not safe. And– and sheila is not above using them to get to hayes and finn.

Bill: I give you my word. My word. You’ll have nothing to fear from sheila.

Steffy: Your– your word? I hate you, bill. I am never gonna forgive you for this. Never! Do you hear me? Never!

[ Steffy sobbing ] I’m jonathan lawson

[ Gate clanging ]

Officer: Might as well get used to it. You’re gonna be hearing that sound for a good long time, guthrie.

Mike: Yeah, I know. May not have my freedom, but… at least I’ll always have my memories of that very special lady.

[ Inaudible ]

[ Whirring ]

Sheila: I like you, mike.

Don’t stop being my friend.

Because you should know better

than anyone what happens

to my enemies.

Mike: Okay! Okay!

I get the point.

Sheila: Just wanna make sure

of it.

Mike: Sheila.

[ Dog growling ]

Sheila: Welcome to

forrester creations, mike!

Just this once.

Mike: Fine by me.

[ Sighing ]

[ Birds chirping ]

[ Door opening ]

Sheila: I– I could barely– I could barely breathe in the car. I– I ke– I kept waiting for flashing lights and sirens, uh, and for someone to pull us over and say that they were taking me back in– into custody. I just… I don’t know how I’m ever gonna thank you. You really came through for me, bill.

Bill: You’re worth it.

Sheila: There– there aren’t too many people that would agree with that.

Bill: Most people don’t know you the way I do.

Sheila: I just– it feels amazing to be fully seen. I’m– that– I’m out of that– that hell hole. It’s– and it’s because of you. Your plan, it– it– it worked. You– you got your judge onto my case and– and– and finn and steffy, they didn’t testify against me. It… you are one hell of a man, bill spencer.

Finn: So, what the hell just happened? Sheila’s free?

Steffy: Because of bill. What was he thinking? He knows sheila. He knows her murderous history.

Finn: Well, obviously, he doesn’t care. Seems to make her more his type.

Steffy: Oh, god. He said he was gonna use my mother’s name as his shooter. He swore he wasn’t gonna do that.

Finn: Yeah, so you trusted him.

Steffy: I– yeah, I did. I mean, I know, I know bill can be ruthless and he’s not above using something as leverage to get what he wants, but not against us. For sheila? That is unthinkable. Look, I am– I’m just– I’m so sorry I put you in this position. This is all my fault.

Finn: No, hey. It’s okay. All right, your problems are my problems. We’re a team. And we never lose sight of that.

Steffy: It killed me to watch sheila walk away. All I had to do was just be honest. Tell them what happened and she would’ve been locked up forever. But it was too risky. I really believe that bill would’ve turned my mother in.

Finn: Look, he gave us a terrible choice, but we made the right one. Okay? It was the only one. But the question now is, how do we explain not testifying?

Steffy: Oh, god.

Finn: And dropping these charges, especially to taylor?

Steffy: I can’t think about that right now. I’m still spiraling after everything that happened.

[ Door opening, taylor gasping]

Taylor: There they are. The heroes of the day!

[ Taylor giggling ] Okay. How does it feel to know that because of you, sheila will spend the rest of her life behind bars?

Hey! Did you hear?

Sheila: It’s finally happened. I’m free. I’m– I’m free. I– I kept warning people not to count me out. And they kept saying that I– I didn’t stand a chance. I would never see the light of day. That there would– there would be no way back. But there’s always a way back. All of this was possible because of– of your kindness and your support. And I am so grateful. So lucky. You inspire me, just watching you work. The way you blackmailed steffy and– and finn into not saying anything about the shooting, and the way you masterfully manipulated your own judge onto my case.

Bill: I put a lot on the line for you.

Sheila: I’m aware.

Bill: I need to know that I’m not going to regret it. That you will never let me down.

Sheila: You don’t need to worry about that. I will always be your partner. For life.

Taylor: Come on, guys. Don’t keep me in suspense. Please, please. I– I– I wanna feel like I was there. I wanna feel like I was watching sheila’s face as you guys testified. Oh, my god, the satisfaction you must be feeling right now. Right? Come on, guys. Justice was served!

Steffy: About that. There’s something you need to know, mom.

Taylor: Okay? I’ve been waiting all day for this. What?

Finn: It doesn’t have the ending you’re expecting.

Taylor: What does that mean?

Steffy: She’s free. All the charges have been dropped.

Taylor: What? That doesn’t make sense. Okay. Hold on a second. The judge just let her walk after you guys testified that she shot you?

Steffy: Finn and I never pressed charges, mom.

Taylor: Uh, you both want sheila to go to prison, right?

Finn: Yeah. Yeah.

Taylor: But you didn’t give a testimony? I don’t understand. Guys, stop looking at each other, look at me. Tell me what’s going on. Why isn’t sheila in prison right now?

Steffy: Bill said he, uh–

Taylor: Bill? Bill spencer? What does he have to do with you pressing charges?

Finn: He’s got everything to do with us not pressing charges.

Steffy: Bill said if we testify against sheila, he’ll let it be known that he was shot, too. By you, mom. By you.

Update written by Suzanne

At Forrester Creations, Brook and Taylor share Chinese food for lunch and have a chat. They’re excited that Sheila is going before a judge today to get what she deserves. They agree that they’re both survivors and glad that they’re putting themselves first (instead of going back to Ridge). Brooke wonders why she was always so needy before. Taylor admits that it still hurts that Ridge left her at the altar, but she’s glad that they’re both re-reevaluating their lives. They wonder what’s next for them. Taylor asks if Brooke is going to date and wonders if she’ll get back with Bill. Brooke assures her that she’s not going to date Bill, but she thinks he does have a new woman in his life. Later, they try on fancy dresses for fun and compliment each other. They talk about Ridge again. Brooke asks Taylor to come over for a “girls night in” to watch TV and eat popcorn, so Taylor agrees. They are so friendly now that they’re briefly holding hands. Taylor again mentions how glad she is that Steffy will be able to move on from Sheila. The two women hug.

In court, Judge McMullan wants to hear Steffy and Finn’s testimony about Sheila. Bill is spying on them via his laptop. Steffy hestitates, thinking about Bill’s threat to her mom. Sheila insists on addressing Steffy and Finn. She tells them how sorry she is and how much she loves them. They glare at her, clearly not believing her. Sheila mentions Taylor and how much she admires her, but it’s clearly a veiled threat. Steffy has tears of anger and says that she hopes to get closure and justice. She assures Sheila that she will never have any part in their lives. Steffy tells the judge that she has no testimony to give. Finn does the same. The judge tells them that Mike came forward to say that he forced her, against her will, to escape from prison, and video evidence backs him up. Therefore, he is forced to dismiss the charges and let Sheila go free. Steffy is very upset

[ Upbeat music ]

Taylor: Hey, thanks for treating me to lunch.

Brooke: Of course. My pleasure.

[ Brooke sighing ] Steffy and finn meeting with the judge has me a little bit anxious.

Taylor: Yeah, me too. But the good thing is sheila’s been caught. She is going down. There is no way she’s going to walk free again.

Brooke: Maybe it’ll be good for steffy and finn. They’ll have some sort of closure. They’ll be able to go on record and talk about the pain and suffering that sheila inflicted on them.

Taylor: Yeah. I hope it’s cathartic for both of them. I really do. Once the judge has their testimony, it’s the end of the road for poor, misunderstood sheila carter.

[ Taylor chuckling ]

Mcmullen: I’ve called you all here today to reaffirm the charges that have been brought forth against ms. Carter. This is a– a highly unusual case and I just want to make sure everything is in order.

So, dr. Finnegan,

what say you?

Are you prepared to provide

testimony and move forward

with the case?


Taylor: Mm. Mm-hm.

Brooke: Mm-hm?

Taylor: Mm-hm. Who would’ve ever thought taylor hayes and brooke logan spending an afternoon together?

Brooke: Not because we have to, but because we want to.

Taylor: That’s right.

Brooke: You know, all that anger we had directed at each other, now we can put that somewhere else. Into sheila.

Taylor: Yes! Into sheila because she’s the actual villain, right? We were just– we were just caught in a toxic cycle and lots of family drama.

Brooke: Mm-hm. The attack was coming from the outside. Sheila carter was the threat to our safety and our happiness.

Taylor: Yeah, and you know what? Now, we can finally celebrate because we will never be victims of sheila carter ever again.

Mcmullen: You may proceed, dr. Finnegan.

Bill: The terms of my

deal remain the same:

Sheila’s freedom for

taylor’s freedom.

Mcmullen: We’re waiting, dr. Finnegan. Is there a problem?

Finn: Uh, your honor, I… have nothing to say.

Bill: Atta boy. Why give your family just any eggs

Brooke: We are a family of survivors.

Taylor: Yes, we are.

Brooke: We are.

Taylor: Yeah.

Brooke: We’ve survived a lot. We’ve survived sheila, we’ve survived years of going back and forth with ridge.

Taylor: How are you really doing with all of that? You know, I mean, I know that you’re used to having someone in your life.

Brooke: Hm. Yeah, that is true. I look back at certain phases and I think, “why was I so needy?”

Taylor: Hm.

Brooke: I’ve come to realize I’m happier putting myself first and whatever that may look like from here on out.

Taylor: We really are redefining ourselves.

Brooke: We are. Redefining, evolving, maturing.

[ Taylor chuckling ]

Taylor: Yeah, we’re– we’re really evolving. It feels so good, you know? Kind of going through a growth spurt.

Brooke: Mm-hm. So, you’re really not thinking about ridge, waiting for him to come back?

Taylor: Oh, um, he left me at the altar for the last time. Oh, gosh, you know. I get that he had to go away and process, but man, you know, it left a mark, it really did. It’s what? A couple weeks later and it still stings.

Brooke: I’m sure it was painful.

Taylor: It was a painful situation all around.

Brooke: It was hard on ridge too.

Taylor: I’m just glad that he’s doing some soul searching.

Brooke: Yeah, it’s about time.

Taylor: Yes, it’s about time.

[ Both laughing ]

Brooke: I think that we’re all taking a step back and reevaluating our lives.

Taylor: Yeah. So, what is next on the horizon for you, brooke logan?

Brooke: Oh, uh…

Taylor: Like, you know, dating?

Brooke: Dating? No, no.

Taylor: Bill spencer maybe. I don’t know. He’s– he’s always had such a thing for you and you guys were good together, you know. I mean, he– he seems like he’s like this lone wolf kind of guy, but he always likes to have a woman in his life.

Brooke: Oh, well, it certainly isn’t me and it certainly isn’t katie. And if there is a woman in bill’s life, I certainly don’t know who it is.

Mcmullen: You have nothing to say?

Finn: No.

Mcmullen: Am I to understand that you are no longer willing to testify?

Finn: That’s correct.

Mcmullen: Are– are you no longer seeking to press charges against the defendant? You changed your mind?

Finn: Yes.

Mcmullen: Well, all right then. It’s time for ms. Forrester–

Sheila: If I could have a moment, please, to say a few words, your honor.

Attorney: As your attorney, I strongly advise–

Sheila: I would only take a few minutes, please.

Mcmullen: Counsel?

Attorney: My client would

like to address you directly.

Mcmullen: All right. I’ll allow it. Go ahead, ms. Carter.

Sheila: Thank you. Judge mcmullen, we all know why we’re here today. It’s because of me. My actions, my mistakes and I– I never meant to hurt you, finn or steffy. I love you more than anything, finn, and I am so proud of the man that you have become and the father that you are to my beautiful grandson, hayes. Finn, I… I know how much you adore steffy, and steffy, I– I see the joy and the– the love that you have brought to my son’s life and I am forever indebted to you for that. And the beautiful grandson that you gave me. I am your mother-in-law. I am and always will be family. I know how close you are and how loyal you are to your mother, and I know what a great role model taylor has been for you all these years. She’s an incredible woman a woman with an immaculate reputation. When I first came to los angeles, she’s the one person that gave me a chance. She– she gave me the opportunity to show you that I deserved a place in this family, and I will never forget that. All I want is for you and finn and your family to be happy. I just want the best for you. That’s it, I’m– thank you for allowing me to say a few words today, your honor.

Mcmullen: Ms. Forrester, are you ready? #1 isn’t a status earned overnight.

Taylor: Okay.

Brooke: Oh, wow.

Taylor: Hold on, can you get this?

Brooke: Oh, nice.

Taylor: Oh, my gosh. A forrester original.

Brooke: Thank you for being my fit model.

Taylor: No, you’re welcome. This is beautiful.

Brooke: Woo, woo!

Taylor: Wheesh. Yes?

[ Both laughing ]

Brooke: You look flawless, taylor.

Taylor: Thank you.

Brooke: You always do.

Taylor: Oh, my gosh. Thank you. I definitely have my fair share of sweatpants moments too.

Brooke: Oh, I’m sure you look amazing in your sweatpants. It’s– it’s so annoying.

Taylor: Oh, stop. Says the quintessential california woman. Every man’s dream.

Brooke: Well, not every man’S.

Taylor: Mm. Listen, ridge should be lucky to have either of us.

Brooke: Yeah.

Taylor: Yeah.

Brooke: I guess we should both be proud of everything we’ve accomplished.

Taylor: Yes. And there’s more to come. I can feel it.

Brooke: Okay, I just need more of that energy.

Taylor: Yeah.

Brooke: Which is hard to drum up sometimes.

Taylor: I know, but you know what? With age comes wisdom. And back aches. Listen, I– I know that we’re doing the right thing by– by just choosing ourselves, but that’s also going to mean time alone.

Brooke: Yeah, okay. Well, speaking of time alone.

Taylor: Mm-hm.

Brooke: How about we have a girls’ night? Just bring over popcorn and whatever else and we’ll just binge watch some shows.

Taylor: That sounds amazing. I am in. Yes.

Brooke: Okay.

Taylor: I’d love that.

Brooke: I know I said this before, but I am happy that you came over today.

Taylor: I am too. You know, it’s nice to have you here with me, on this journey, and especially everything that’s going on with sheila, I think you might be the only one who understands what a liability she’s been.

Brooke: I really wonder what’s going on over there at the courthouse.

Taylor: Oh, I bet it’s a celebration for one side. With steffy and finn’s testimony, this case is a slam dunk.

Brooke: Oh, yes!

Mcmullen: Ms. Forrester.

Bill: Come on.

Steffy: Your honor… you say you’re sorry for hurting us, you claim to love us, that we’re family. That’s something I try to wipe from my mind every single day. You’re not my mother-in-law. You’re not a friend. You have no idea the pain you caused me and my family.

You say you respect and

admire my mother.

Sheila: And I do, steffy.

I want taylor’s happiness

and I know you do too.

Attorney: Your honor, this is highly unorthodox.

Mcmullen: Ms. Forrester, I am waiting.

Steffy: Um… by being here today, I was, um… I was hoping to gain some closure. To finally feel that justice would be served. I’m still hoping that’s the case. Whether sheila is in prison because of finn and me or not. But as long as sheila is alive, she will always haunt us and my memories. But you will play no part in my future. None whatsoever, whether you pay for your crimes or not. No words have the power to erase what you’ve done to us. None. That’s all I have to say.

Mcmullen: That’s it? No testimony, no… nothing in regards to the charges that have been brought forth on ms. Carter? Nothing?

Steffy: No. I have nothing else to say. I am no longer pressing charges.

Finn: You did the right thing.

Steffy: It’s fine. Our charges aren’t the only ones necessary to convict her. We have enough evidence to put her behind bars for many years to come.

[Sfx: Stomach gurgling]

Taylor: Thank you again for a lovely lunch.

Brooke: Oh, of course. I’m already looking forwards to our girls’ night.

Taylor: I am too. And I am free anytime, by the way. My schedule is wide open.

Brooke: I think mine’s pretty clear too.

Taylor: Oh, my gosh. I need to check on a patient.

Brooke: Oh, okay.

Taylor: I’ve been here for a while, and then I’m going to race over to steffy and finn’s to congratulate them on their triumph today! The nightmare of sheila carter is finally over.

Brooke: Oh, yes! I am so happy for you and your family. Oh.

Taylor: Thank you.

Mcmullen: I just want

to be certain that both

ms. Forrester and

dr. Finnegan are choosing

not to testify and further rescinding the charges that were previously brought against ms. Carter. Is that correct?

Finn: Yes, your honor.

Steffy: Yes. But there are other charges against sheila. Major charges. I’m confident she won’t be a free woman for a very long time.

Mcmullen: Actually, there’s been some new evidence that has been brought to my attention recently. Some really compelling evidence. Ms. Carter was previously suspected of escaping custody. However, I have a sworn affidavit from a former corrections officer who was on duty that day, a mr. Mike guthrie.

Mr. Guthrie has stated

that he coerced ms. Carter

and removed her from her

jail cell against her will.

Finn: What?

Steffy: Wait, you’re saying that sheila was kidnapped by mike guthrie?

Mcmullen: That is correct.

Finn: With all due respect, you– how does someone get kidnapped out of prison?

Mcmullen: I had the same question, but there’s indisputable video footage which corroborates mr. Guthrie’s story. So, unfortunately, this is just a failure of our penal system.

Steffy: What– what are you talking about? I don’t understand what that means.

Mcmullen: Since there was no further charges brought forward and both of you refused to testify, along with dropping your own charges, which I will notify the state about, I have no other choice but to release ms. Carter.

Finn: Release?

Steffy: You can’t do that.

Mcmullen: Case dismissed. That’s it for today.

Please remove ms. Carter’s

handcuffs and escort her

from my chambers.

She’s free to go.

Steffy: No, no, no, no. This is– this is wrong.

Finn: Your honor.

Steffy: She– sheila’s dangerous, she faked her own death, she hid from the police. This is wrong! She can’t be free! No, you have to do something, no! You can’t do this.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Taylor: Yeah, well today is the big day, we’re finally going to be rid of sheila forever. What time are you meeting with the judge?

Steffy: Um, ah, it’s later than we thought. We’re going to leave right after you.

Taylor: Okay, I’ll get out of here. But don’t forget what baker said. Your testimony’s are going to be crucial in sheila being put away forever. You know, I am so proud of you. I’m so proud of both of you. I know this isn’t easy. I know, but it’s necessary. Justice will be served and sheila will be locked up where she belongs.

Bill: So, we’re all set then? Good.

Sheila: I’m confused though, my attorney didn’t say anything about a meeting before the hearing today. Why does he want to see me?

Guard 1: It’s not your attorney who wants an audience with your majesty.

[ Buzzing ]Th

Deacon: I would’ve been here sooner but I just got back from out of town. We can talk about that later.

Guards 1: Sit. Now, you both know the rules. No touching or it’s back to your cell.

[ Buzzing ]

Deacon: God, I hate to see you in here, back behind bars, handcuffed. Sheila, I’m so sorry.

Sheila: You don’t need to be sorry. And this had nothing to do with you.

Deacon: Yeah, I know, but it’s like all the times that I told you that this is where you’d wind up, that it was only a matter of time. I got to admit, there was a– there was a little part of me that was betting that you were going to beat the odds.

Sheila: Maybe I have.

Deacon: Sweetheart, take a look around. This place is locked up tighter than fort knox. Houdini, on his best day, couldn’t escape.

Sheila: Yeah, I’m aware.

Deacon: So what? That means that you’ve just accepted the fact that you’re going to be in prison for a long time?

Taylor: Hey there, did you miss me?

Brooke: Taylor, you’re back.

Taylor: I just got in last night. How are you?

Brooke: Happy to see you.

Taylor: Happy to see you, too. Uh, a lot has changed since I’ve been gone.

Brooke: Oh, yes. If you’re talking about sheila.

Taylor: Yeah, I was– I was so happy when steffy called me and told me about sheila’s arrest.

Brooke: I feel the same.

Taylor: You know, I– I wasn’t sure that this day would ever come, ever. But here we are. Today is the day. Sheila is in custody, and she’s finally going to pay for all the terrible things she’s done.

Sheila: I want to thank you for coming to see me. I know this isn’t your favorite place to be.

Deacon: Yeah well, that’s true. I’ve been thinking about you a lot, you know, since you were arrested. By the way, thanks for not ratting me out.

Sheila: After everything you did for me, I really, I– I’m never going to be able to repay you.

Deacon: You already have by not saying anything. So, how they treating you in here?

Sheila: Like royalty.

Deacon: It’s good to see you haven’t lost your sense of humor. But I’m worried about you.

Sheila: That’s sweet. I’m gonna be okay.

Deacon: Still hoping for a miracle, huh?

Sheila: Yeah, well, you never know.

Deacon: Wow, you know, I expected to come here and find you down in the dumps, and you’re not. Unless this is all an act for my benefit.

Sheila: No. No, it’s not an act.

Deacon: Okay, then I’d like to ask you a question. What the hell were you doing going to spencer’s house that night? You knew the minute that he saw you, he’d call the cops.

Finn: You okay?

Steffy: Are you?

Finn: Well, neither one of us got much sleep last night.

Steffy: For good reason. If we don’t go along with bill, my mom goes to jail. And if we do, sheila’s free. It’s– it’s unthinkable.

Finn: I just still will never understand. Like, how did sheila get to bill in this way?

Steffy: I don’t know. And I honestly, I don’t care if– if bill feels abandoned and hurt. To allow someone like sheila carter into his life. I mean, you heard my mom, she is so excited about her future. My god, all this could be taken away if we agree to testify against sheila today.

Without the right start

to your day…

Taylor: I mean, of all the possible scenarios, bill was the one that apprehended sheila.

Brooke: I know, but then bill does love playing the hero.

[ Laughing ]

Taylor: Well, you know, he wasn’t really playing this time because sheila showed up at his house and he immediately turned her in. In my book, that’s a real hero.

Brooke: Mine, too.

Taylor: Yeah.

Brooke: You know, katie went over to see him and to tell him how grateful we all are for what he did.

Taylor: Oh, that’s sweet. I’m sure he appreciated that.

Brooke: Yeah, you’d think so.

Taylor: But he didn’t?

Brooke: Katie said he seemed genuinely surprised that she was there to thank him. Almost like he’s an afterthought. Like, we really don’t care about him. Which is not true.

Taylor: Oh, of course not. I’m sorry about that, I– I’m not close with bill spencer, you know, given our complicated history and all. But, you know, I hope whatever it is, I hope it works out. You know, it’s because of bill that– that sheila’s going to be out of our lives, especially after steffy and finn talk to the judge today.

Steffy: It’s my dad. He wants to be there with us today.

Finn: What did you tell him?

Steffy: Not to come. He’s been traveling, doing some soul searching, especially after what happened with my mom and brooke. Besides, he should not be here. Bill hates my dad, and if he is here it’s just going to incite bill to–

Finn: No, that’s– that’s the last thing we need.

Steffy: Yeah, exactly.

Finn: Do you think he’s just going to do as you ask?

Steffy: You know my dad. He supports his family, but since he thinks he already knows what we’re going to say, he’s not pushing to be here.

Finn: Well, do we know what we’re going to say? Because I’ve got to tell you, steffy, as much as I love you and your mother, the thought of caving to spencer, not testifying to make sure sheila remains behind bars. That’s what I’m struggling with here.

Steffy: I know, I am so sorry I put you in this position.

Finn: No, they… you didn’t put me in this position. Spencer did. He can call it whatever he wants, but it’s still blackmail and blackmailing my wife, threatening to throw her mother in jail. That’s– I don’t know how I’ll ever look like that guy without total contempt, no matter what we say today.

Steffy: I know and we should, uh, we should get going. I know this is wishful thinking, but there’s still some time for bill to come to his senses and realize what he’s doing is wrong. No one deserves to get justice served more than sheila carter.

Deacon: Seriously, what were you thinking? Hightailing it to bill spencer’s place, asking him for help? I mean, did you honestly think there was a snowball’s chance in hell that that would even happen? All right, look, it doesn’t matter. All right, what’s done is done. What matters is– is what happens going forward, right? I hear you’re going to see the judge later today.

Sheila: Yes.

Deacon: You gotta to be dreading that. Oh, come on sheila, you don’t have to put on a brave face for me. Finn and steffy, they’re going to make you out to be hannibal lecter’s spawn. They are going to detail every horrible thing that you did to their families. I just want you to know that you’re not alone. I’m not going to abandon you, even if everyone else has. I mean, there’s not much that I can do with you in here. Come visit you, you know. I’ll keep you up on what’s going on in the outside, and we’ll have to do it on the down low, but… I know that you said that– that this isn’t over. That the best was yet to come. But, I’m afraid this is the end of the line. Postmenopausal women with hr+ her2-

Sheila: I can see and hear your concern. And it’s– it’s sweet. But it’s like I said before, deacon. Everyone has always underestimated me.

Deacon: Yeah, including yours truly, at first. But sheila, I mean, you’re back behind bars. You’re going to be seeing the judge in a few. And look… I don’t wanna– I don’t want to make things more difficult. Okay, that’s not why I came.

Sheila: But then, why– why don’t you tell me. Why did you come?

Deacon: I had to see you. I had to tell you that I– I really enjoyed our time together. And I care about you.

Sheila: I care about you, too. Who knows, I mean, if– if things had been different. Maybe we would’ve had a chance.

Guard 1: Okay, you two, got to wrap it up.

Deacon: Listen, despite this brave facade, I know you’ve got to be scared. I know because I’ve been where you are. I’ve been locked up. I’ve been away from the people that I love, I know. Look, I’m gonna come visit you so you don’t feel so alone. Sheila, I’m never gonna turn my back on you, I promise.

Guard 1: Rise.

[ Buzzing ]

Sheila: Bye.

Deacon: Bye.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Finn: Look, the judge is on his way. What are we gonna do?

Steffy: I know what I want to do. I want sheila in jail for the rest of her life. But how can I make this happen? How can I risk my mother’s freedom? My god, if she knew what bill was doing right now…

Finn: By blackmailing us?

Steffy: My mom would sacrifice herself. She would go straight to the police. She would confess what she did to bill all those years ago. Bill, what are you doing here?

Bill: Hoping to put this behind us. Remind you of our deal.

Finn: Yeah, that’s all we’ve been thinking about for days.

Steffy: We hate that you’re putting us in this position.

Bill: Please keep your voices down and watch what you’re saying.

Finn: Look, even if steffy and I do what you want. What about my mother? Sheila terrorized her, ran her off the road, tried to kill her. She can just come forward–

Bill: Lee is going to have to be kept quiet. Now let’s not forget that she did sneak you out of a hospital and falsify medical records. That could have a negative impact on her career, not to mention jeopardizing her freedom.

Finn: So now you’re threatening my mother, too.

Steffy: Have you forgotten that sheila escaped prison? One way or the other she’s going to do the time.

Bill: All I’m telling you is I don’t want to hear a word out of you and finn today.

Steffy: You think you can handle this? This is impossible.

Bill: We should leave before the judge gets here. Remember, sheila’s freedom for your mother’s freedom. Do you like…

Taylor: I– I wish today was open to the public.

Brooke: I know.

Taylor: You know, I just– I just want to see sheila’s face. I want to see her face when they haul her away.

Brooke: Me, too. When I think of the immense heartache and suffering that she’s brought to all of our families, the fear, the fear that we’ve had to live with. I mean, I’m surprised we survived it all.

Taylor: Yeah, you know, I’ve– I’ve seen a lot of patients with varying degrees of challenges through my career, but, you know, I’ve treated them all successfully. Some who are even labeled untreatable. But sheila carter is– she actually is untreatable because she doesn’t think she needs to be treated. She doesn’t think anything’s wrong with her. I’m just really glad that she’s going to be locked away for the rest of her life, you know. Maybe she’ll get some help there. Just feels good to know that she’ll be– she’ll be put away securely, away from all of us. All thanks to steffy and finn.

Finn: Look, it’s almost time. We have to decide what we’re going to do.

Steffy: You heard bill. He’s not budging. Either we do what he wants, or… oh, my god, the man has lost it. He wants us to do unthinkable things. I mean, my mom made one mistake and she regrets it. But it pales in comparison to all the evil things sheila has done.

Sheila: Hello finn. Hello, steffy. Not even a hi?

Counsellor: Miss carter, I would advise you to keep your comments to yourself.

Sheila: We were asked to review my case before trial. I just hope you do what’s best for everyone, you both know why.

Judge: Sorry to keep everyone waiting. I apologize. Please be seated. I’m judge mcmillan. As I’m sure you’re all aware that we’re here today in this closed session to gather testimony and information regarding the case pertaining to a miss sheila carter. Does the counselor have any opening remarks?

Counsellor: No, your honor.

Judge: Very well, then. Um… thank you for being here today, dr. Finnegan. Ms. Forrester. Your testimony, along with your statements today will prove very crucial in this case. I’d like to begin with you, dr. Finnegan. From what I understand, ms. Carter, is your biological mother, a fact that you were unaware of until a year or so ago. Is that correct?

Finn: Uh, yes.

Judge: All right. Let’s get started doctor. Are you ready to proceed with the case regarding miss sheila carter?

Update written by Suzanne

Taylor is with Steffy and Finn at their house. She’s excited that they’ll be testifying in court today against Sheila, who will go away to prison for good. Steffy and Finn keep exchanging worried glances. She tells them that she’s proud of them before she leaves.

Bill talks to someone on the phone, asking if they’re all set. He’s happy to hear that they are.

Sheila is in prison. A guard escorts her to see her visitor, Deacon. Deacon apologizes for not being around lately because he had to leave town. He is worries about her being in jail and wonders what she was thinking, going to Bill’s house (since she should have known that he would turn her in). He thanks her for not telling anyone that he’s been helping her. She’s grateful to him for helping her. He can’t understand why she’s not looking more depressed, since the odds seem stacked against her. Sheila looks tempted to tell him what’s going on, but she doesn’t. He tells her that he cares about her and will help her however he can, such as visiting her. She tells him that she cares about him, too. He knows that she’s going to see the judge today, but he’s still puzzled about why she doesn’t seem worried about that. She just reminds him that people always underestimate her. she leaves

Steffy and Finn are at home. They talk about Sheila and Taylor. They want Sheila to pay for her crimes, but they don’t want Taylor to get in trouble. Steffy tells Finn that Ridge wanted to come to court to support her, but she told him not to, since he’s been traveling and “soul-searching.” Finn is really angry at Bill for blackmailing them. He doesn’t think he can ever respect him again. They leave for court. After they get there, Bill arrives. He wants to make sure they remember his deal. They assure him that’s all they’ve been thinking about. Finn reminds Bill that even if they don’t press charges, Li might, since Sheila almost killed her. Bill suggests that Li should keep her mouth shut, or else her career might suffer, since she took Finn out of the hospital and kept him secreted away, letting everyone think that he was dead. Finn gets even angrier that Bill is now threatening his mother, too.

Bill leaves and watches from another room on his laptop. Steffy keeps fretting about their situation. The guard brings Sheila in, and she says hello, but Steffy and Finn say nothing. Her lawyer arrives and advises her not to speak. Then the judge arrives. While they all prepare for the hearing, Sheila looks up at Bill via the camera.

Taylor visits Brooke at Forrester Creations and they hug. They talk about how Sheila will be finally going to prison after Finn and Steffy give their testimony. They’re grateful to Bill for turning her in to the police. Brooke tells her that Katie went to visit him and thank him, but he seem surprised that any of them care about him at all. Taylor thinks that’s very sad. They go back to discussing Sheila and how great it will be to have her out of their lives and to not live in fear any more.

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

Finn: Actually, I think I do. In fact, I will hold you as long as you need. I’ll hold you until this entire nightmare’s over.

Steffy: Will it be? Or is sheila gonna be in our lives forever?

Finn: Well, sheila’s in custody, right? Maybe we’ll luck out.

Steffy: You heard bill what he’ll do if she doesn’t get released.

Finn: Would he, though? After all this time, he would come forward about what your mom did and turn her in.

Steffy: He’s determined to help sheila resorting to blackmail. I mean, there are so many women he could choose from, women who actually add to his life, fulfill him. And who does he turn to? Sheila. Sheila carter.

Sheila: Are you sure it’s safe to talk?

Bill: I have taken care of everything, but nothing is guaranteed. So I wanna err on the side of caution. Keep your voice down and keep your distance.

Sheila: Yeah. But if we have this room to ourselves.

Bill: That’s the very opposite of what I just said. And it makes me wonder if you’re trying to avoid an answer.

Sheila: What?

Bill: I need to know if this is real.

Sheila: I can’t believe you even feel you have to ask that.

Bill: I have felt like this before, only to be let down. I’ll not be used. Is that what you’re doing, sheila? Are you using me?

[ Bag zipping ]

[ Door opens ]

Katie: Oh, my.

[ Laughing ]

Carter: Yeah. I forgot to lock that again.

Katie: Ah, and let me guess, you were working out again?

Carter: Guilty as charged.

Katie: Oh, oh, hang on, hang on. Before you button up, there’s something you need to do first.

Carter: Somebody’s in a good mood.

Katie: Well, how can I help but in a good mood when I walk in on this?

[ Carter chuckles ]

Carter: I’m sure it’s more than that. Your visit with bill, it went well?

Katie: Okay, hang on a second. So I am here in your handsome arms, and you wanna talk about bill?

Carter: Not if you don’t want to.

Katie: Hmm. Well, my visit did go well. Yeah. I just can’t get over it. Sheila finally captured, and that’s all because of bill. He’s really a hero.

Steffy: If we give in, if we trade sheila’s freedom for my mother’s, we’re endangering all of us. Why can’t bill see that?

Finn: He can’t see anything, steffy. Sheila’s got some sort of emotional hold on him.

Steffy: And that is a truly frightening thought to know that bill has some like sick crush on a psychopath. What do we do, finn? What do we do? Sheila cannot be released. But if bill is serious about threatening my mom, I think our– our hands are tied. I don’t know.

Taylor: Okay. I have one question. One very important question. Who is throwing the party? Me or you?

Steffy: Ah, party? What, what, what, what party?

Taylor: Come on. I can’t be the only one that wants to celebrate. Sheila’s finally behind bars.

Sheila: Am I using you? If you mean by using, wrapping myself in your incredibly strong arms and not wanting you to let go. Connecting with someone in a way I’ve never connected with anyone like that my entire life. I’ve– I thought you felt the same way. That you were enjoying every minute of it.

Katie: You know what’s sad? When bill found out that I was concerned about him, it– he seemed surprised.

Carter: Did he?

Katie: Yeah.

Carter: Well, knowing bill he had something sarcastic to say.

Katie: I– that’s just it. I mean, he has, shall we say, a big personality, and none of that was there. That bluster. It was like he was so vulnerable. Something that I’ve rarely seen. Something’s been off with him for a while lately.

Carter: Well, it’s a good thing he wasn’t the least bit off when sheila came knocking on his door. We all owe bill our gratitude, and now we can focus on other things. Better things.

Katie: Mm. Much better things.

Taylor: [ Chuckles ] Steffy, you should have heard me when I got your text that sheila had finally been arrested. I screamed, “yes!” Right in the middle of my colleague’s speech. Now he won’t stop talking to me about alternative modalities for anxiety.

Steffy: How was the conference?

Taylor: It was great. Sold out. Thank you. That– I don’t wanna talk about that. I wanna hear about how everything went down. So– so wait. Bill is the one that found sheila and turned her in?

Finn: Yeah. It was bill. He’s responsible for all this.

Taylor: Wow. Our family is safe again because of bill spencer.

Sheila: Look, we’re gonna have many more nights together in front of the fireplace. Just get me out of here. Please, just take me back home.

Bill: Home? You really think this can work, the two of us?

Sheila: Well, given the way things have gone the last few weeks, I’d say yes.

Bill: Why did you follow me that night?

Sheila: From el giardino? I– I don’t know. I saw you sitting at the bar by yourself, staring off, and you just looked so lonely. And it intrigued me. I’ll be honest, I was bored. I was bored. My situation being alone and following you, well, that was going to be an adventure. The all-powerful rich, mighty bill spencer, where was he heading off to?

Bill: Not what you expected, I’m sure.

Sheila: No, it definitely wasn’T. I never expected you to walk down the beach and plop yourself down in the sand. And I knew that approaching you would be a risk. But I don’t know, there was just– there was something that said I had to take that chance.

Bill: We talked until the sun came up.

Sheila: And you could have called the police. You could have easily overpowered me. Turned me in. But you didn’T. And I– I still, still can’t believe that.

Bill: I can’t either. There was something about the desperation in your voice, the loneliness in your eyes. That night, we connected in a way. Well, like you said, in a way that I’ve never connected with anyone. My god, what does that say about me?

Sheila: That says you’re tired of faking who you are and that you’ve been with the wrong women. You’ve been with good girls most of your life. Bill, good girls who didn’t truly understand you. They wanted to change you. Wanted to make you more like them. You’re not one of them, bill. Neither one of us are. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition.

Carter: You know, the best part of all of this?

Katie: All of what?

Carter: Sheila being arrested.

Katie: We no longer have to live in danger.

Carter: Yeah. Yes. But I was going to say your gorgeous smile.

Katie: [ Chuckles ]

Carter: I like seeing you happy.

Katie: I like being happy. It definitely feels like there’s a weight lifted. With sheila in custody, we can concentrate on better things on the future and all those wonderful moments yet to come.

Sheila: Other women want to change you. They wanna tame you and turn you into a weaker version of your true self. But not me. I know there’s nothing wrong with you. I understand you. The core, just like you do me.

Bill: Steffy came to see me.

Sheila: Did she?

Bill: She asked a lot of questions. Questions I’m not sure I even have the answers to. Katie as well. She called me a hero.

Sheila: That’s exactly what you are. You’re my hero. Oh, come on, bill. Please tell me you are not wavering because of something a logan has said.

Bill: I am putting everything on the line for you. If we pull this off, I lose everyone. My kids will hate me. Katie, brooke. I say goodbye to everyone in my life.

Sheila: Yes. And you say hello to someone who understands you.

Bill: Is this real?

Sheila: I– I know that this seems sudden, but I think I have more than shown you how I feel.

Bill: You’re talking about a dance with the devil. If it’s real, it will be an unforgettable ride. If it’s not, I know you, sheila carter.

Taylor: What a way to kick off the new year, huh? Sheila getting caught. It has to be a good omen, right? I am so optimistic right now about my future. I’m back in la, making up for lost time with my grandkids. My– my career is booming. And you know what else? I have a new friend, brooke freaking logan. After everything we’ve been through, I think this is gonna be my best year yet.

[ Knock on the door ]

Taylor: I’ll get it.

Finn: Look, she’s right. Okay? This will be her best year.

Steffy: From inside a cell. We can’t let that happen. We can’t give in to bill’s blackmail.

Taylor: Chief baker, hi.

Chief baker: Dr. Hayes. How are you?

Taylor: You know what? I am excellent. This news about sheila.

Chief baker: It’s about time, right?

Taylor: Yes.

Chief baker: May I?

Taylor: Yes, please. Come on in.

[ Door closes ]

Chief baker: Hello, steffy.

Steffy: Hey.

Chief baker: Finn.

Finn: Hey, chief baker.

Chief baker: As happy as we all are, capturing sheila was really just step one. There’s a whole lot of work to be done before prison becomes her permanent address.

Taylor: Yeah. I mean, I understand that there’s gonna be a hearing, but we all know what the outcome’s gonna be.

Chief baker: Well, that’s why I’m here, in fact, to review your statements, make sure everything is in order for trial.

Bill: If you prosecute

sheila, she won’t be

the only one behind bars.

If sheila goes to jail,

taylor goes to jail.

Taylor: Steffy and finn will do whatever’s necessary to put sheila carter in prison. My asthma felt anything but normal.

Chief baker: I just wanted to reiterate how important your testimony is going to be.

Steffy: I want sheila to pay for what she did.

Finn: There’s no doubt she belongs in prison.

Taylor: Yeah. And stephanie and finn will do whatever they need to do to cooperate. And we all will. Everyone in our family wants to make sure sheila never walks free again.

Chief baker: Exactly what I wanted to hear. Well, thank you all. I will be in touch.

Finn: I’ll show you out.

Steffy: Thanks.

Taylor: Bye. Oh, my gosh. Sheila’s arraignment can’t come soon enough. She’s gonna be locked up forever.

Steffy: I really, I really don’t wanna talk about sheila right now, mom.

Taylor: Hey. What’s going on?

Steffy: Oh god. There is just so much to be thankful for. So much joy around us, and I think that’s– that’s what we need to focus on, okay?

Taylor: Okay. Okay. Yes. There is so much good. You can focus on your amazing husband and your beautiful kids.

Steffy: And you, my mother. I am just so– um, I’m so proud of you. The woman that you are. You deserve to be happy. You deserve the brightest future imaginable. You said this might be your best year yet. And I want you to know that I will do everything I can to make that happen, okay?

Taylor: I– I love you so much, baby. Thank you.

Sheila: I know why you’re questioning this, why you’re protecting yourself, and it has nothing to do with me. Has to do with what you’ve been through in your past with those bitch logans that put– okay. I– I’m sorry. It’s just that they’ve– they’ve always tried to change you, and that’s why you’re having a hard time understanding what we have together here. They don’t appreciate you. They never did. Not the way that I do. They couldn’t possibly. Neither one of them would’ve ever walked out on you if they did. And that’s something I will never do to you. No, not with the connection that I– I have with you. Connection that I have been looking for my whole life. Someone who– who can handle me and stand up for me. And I know that you’ve been looking for that too.

Bill: Looking? I’m thinking that person didn’t exist.

Sheila: No, I’m here. I’m right here. If you’re there for me, I will be there for you, and I will be a powerful force behind you. Can’t you see it? Bill, the– the possibilities, the two of us together, there is nothing that we can’t do. I can already feel it. I am so ready to love you the way you need, the way no other woman has. But you’ve gotta believe me.

Bill: I wanna believe in your feelings for me. That you’re telling me the truth.

Sheila: I promise you, I am.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: And here I thought no one cared, and the woman that raised my son is checking up on me.

Li: I came to see you in the cage where you belong.

Sheila: Might not be five star. Could use an omelet station, but then, strong women like us we can handle a little temporary discomfort. In a cell for a few days, on the streets for a few weeks.

Li: You and I have nothing in common, sheila. That’s why I’m going to spend the rest of my life loving finn and hayes and you are going to spend the rest of your life behind bars.

Finn: Hey.

Steffy: Hey.

Finn: Are you okay?

Steffy: Uh…

Finn: What– what happened? I thought you’d call me on your way home.

Steffy: Yeah, I needed the drive to think.

Finn: So what– what happened? Did bill come to his senses? Did you get through to him?

Steffy: No.

Finn: What? Bill can’t possibly still be defending sheila.

Bill: Now, you’re going to be in jail for a bit. That’s a necessary step. I will then do everything in my power to get you out.

Sheila: You don’t know how much I’m counting on that. Oh, just get me out soon. I love you so much, bill. And don’t forget what this represents to you. The power. You take no prisoners. You win at all costs.

I’m yours for life.

[ Door unlatching ]

Katie: Oh, bill. Thank god! I’ve been calling you and calling you. I’ve texted. You haven’t gotten back to me. I just– I– I can’t believe what’s happened. Sheila has finally been caught and it’s all because of you.

Li: You’re even more delusional if you’re smiling at rotting away in here for the rest of your life.

Sheila: I’m sorry. Who’s delusional?

Li: This bravado may impress the criminals you’re locked up with, but it doesn’t work with me. I know you can be scared, sheila. I’ve seen it.

Sheila: Do I look scared to you?

Li: You think this is a game?

Sheila: No, I don’T. But if it is, it’s one that I am going to win in the end.

Katie: Are you okay after sheila was here?

Bill: I didn’t realize you were still concerned about me.

Katie: Of course I am. You caught sheila and– and turned her in. I– I mean, how did this happen? Did you trick her somehow? Lure her to the house?

Bill: She, uh– she showed up here. I called the police and that’s all.

[ Katie sighing ]

Katie: That’s all? That’s incredible. So brave. We’re all so grateful, bill. Everyone. Brooke. I mean, I’m sure that finn and– and steffy, they must be elated. But– but I still don’t understand how this happened. I mean, how did sheila end up here? And– and what did she want from you?

Finn: I don’t get it. Bill called the police. Sheila’s been arrested.

Steffy: Sheila’s locked up, but bill wants her out as soon as possible.

Finn: Well, then why turn her in?

Steffy: If not, then she’ll be on the run. This way, she’ll wind up free.

Finn: By blackmailing you. So, he’s still threatening to send your mom to prison for shooting him.

Steffy: Nothing made a difference. Bill is not backing down. If we testify against sheila, if she happens to stay locked up, my mom’s gonna end up in prison too.

Li: You may think you’re getting out of here, sheila, but that’s not happening.

Sheila: Such negative thinking.

Li: Your days of terrorizing my family are over. My son. My son… nearly died at your hands. I saved him, made sure he got home to his wife and children.

Sheila: I– I really don’t want to waste this visit with you arguing things.

Li: Because you know there’s no excuse for what you did. Inflicting violence and pain to those you claim to love? And then onto yourself so you can escape?

Sheila: If I really wanted to escape, I would have, but running away is only a temporary solution.

Li: No, this is a solution, sheila. You behind bars where you can’t hurt anyone else ever again. No more violence. No deception, no threats. You’ve done your worse to me, finn, steffy and her family, going all the way back to her mother and grandmother. How you attacked them and brooke logan too? What you did to them was disgusting, but it’s over. It’s all over. You will now pay for your crimes. All these traumas will be healed and forgotten one day. You see, I believe in right and wrong. I believe people like finn and hayes deserve a happy and free life. And people like you get what’s coming to them.

Sheila: This may surprise you, but I totally agree. I’m getting exactly what I deserve.

[ Katie sighing ]

Katie: Do you know how long it’ll take to prosecute sheila?

Bill: We’re not there yet.

Katie: Thank god she didn’t get away again.

Bill: Sheila’s days of running could finally be over.

Katie: Thank god. That woman has done nothing but cause our families pain and misery.

[ Bill sighing ]

Bill: Well hopefully, we can all move on.

Katie: Put sheila behind us. You don’t think she’s still gonna be a problem for us, do you bill? I mean, what exactly did she say? I can’t believe that she would come here, of all places, for help. Did– did she have a gun?

Bill: Katie, why do you want all these details?

Katie: Because I care about you. Because the idea of sheila harming you in any way or– or worse, it’s– it’s unthinkable. I know that we have been a little out of touch lately, a little out of sorts, but I care about you. We’re family. We have a son together. We’ll always be connected and it’s just– it’s terrifying to think that sheila could have harmed you in any way. I’m just so grateful she didn’t and that we never have to worry about that awful woman again. Because of you. You have eliminated sheila carter from our lives forever. Bill… you’re a hero.

Steffy: I really thought I was getting through to him.

Finn: Well, was it an act?

Steffy: No. No, he said he heard me. He understood our feelings about sheila. The pain that she’s caused and that I had every right to want sheila locked up, but he said that there was one thing I wasn’t taking into consideration: The emptiness inside of him. That he needed a woman who could handle him.

Finn: Okay, so what’re you saying? You’re saying that bill has seriously developed feelings for sheila?

Steffy: Oh, my gosh. I can’t believe this. I think bill has lost his mind and now we may all be paying the price. 3, 4

Sheila: Li, li, li. You– you amuse me. I think you’re confusing justice for retribution.

Li: Don’t worry, sheila. Your day in court is coming. Finn and steffy will testify against you. How you shot them and left them for dead. You’ll finally pay for your crimes. You may have given birth to finn, but god help him and hayes for even having a trace of your blood in their veins. But you will never be a part of their lives ever again. You won’t be discussed. Hayes will never know you ever existed. You will be erased from all of our lives forever. And there’s not a damn thing you can do about it. Guard, I’m done here.

Sheila: Yeah, well I wanna thank you for coming to see me, li. And please, tell finn and steffy that I’m thinking about them and we’ll all be together again soon.

[ Sheila laughing ]

Katie: You’re so quiet. Is this because you’re still shaken from what happened last night? You are a hero, bill. To all of us. We know that. You don’t need to wear that anymore. You can take the sword off.

Bill: Why would I take it off?

Katie: Because you don’t need it. I know you’ve been in a dark place, but that’s not who you are. You’re not that guy and what you did with sheila, it just proves it. You don’t need that anymore. You say you wear it for protection.

Bill: I do.

Katie: You don’t have to protect yourself anymore. Our greatest threat is behind bars and you put her there.

Finn: No, that’s great. I’m glad everyone is having such a good time.

[ Phone beeping ] Hey, the kids are fine. Amelia says they want to stay at the park.

Steffy: Okay.

Finn: Hey, we’re gonna figure this out.

Steffy: I just wish I knew what bill was doing. His motives are always so obvious. Money, power, prestige. I don’t understand what he expects to get from this.

Finn: Don’t you think that sheila might be blackmailing him?

Steffy: I was wondering the same thing, but he denied it.

Finn: You asked him?

Steffy: Yeah. He said that’s not what it is.

Finn: So, you’re saying that he really wants us to let sheila off the hook because he cares for her?

Steffy: Apparently, so much so that he’s willing to send my mother to prison if we don’T.

Finn: Honey, you’re right. He’s lost it.

Steffy: If sheila is actually blackmailing him, we’d be able to find a way out of this, but we’re in trouble if bill has real feelings for her.

I like to voost it voost it

Finn: But I thought one of bill’s redeeming values was his love for his family.

Steffy: It is.

Finn: But you’re saying that’s changed?

Steffy: I don’t know. I don’t understand any of this. Bill is threatening my mother, threatening her freedom so sheila could have hers? It’s absurd.

Finn: No, sheila belongs in prison. Taylor doesn’T. She’s a good person.

Steffy: She is a good person. My mom was a different person back then. Like I said, she thought bill was taking advantage of me.

Finn: Look, protecting your children is one of the most natural instincts there is. I mean, if I were in her shoes, I don’t know. I would have– the thought of bill hurting you? But now, he is. He is threatening our family and your mother. If sheila doesn’t stay locked up, there’s no telling what she could do to us. I mean, she’s already proven how depraved and murderous she could be.

Steffy: Bill swore he was never gonna say anything about my mom shooting him. And now, it could all come out because what? He’s– he’s lonely? This isn’t the bill I know.

Finn: Look, before he helped save me from sheila, I never thought much of the guy. He seemed very full of himself. But now, to defend sheila? To put us all at risk? Your mom, my mom, kelly, hayes?

Steffy: I get it. I know. Bill talks about not wanting to hurt another woman. Not cause them pain. But, he thinks with sheila, he doesn’t have to worry about that.

Finn: So, he’s fallen for her because she doesn’t have any real feelings? This is the most bizarre thing I’ve ever heard.

Steffy: Finn, it’s worse than that. It’s insane.

Officer: Rise.

Officer 2: Officer, step out. Give the prisoner time with their visitor.

Officer: Sir.

Officer 2: Did I not make myself clear?

Bill: Room clean?

Officer 2: Yes, sir.

Sheila: No one gets privacy in here.

Bill: I’m the exception to the rule.

Sheila: But why? What’s going on?

Bill: I had to make sure you were okay.

Sheila: I am now. But you shouldn’t be here, bill. This is dangerous.

Bill: Don’t worry. Everyone out there thinks I’m furious. I told them I had to look you in the eye and confront you for what you’ve done.

Sheila: Is that all you wanna do?

Bill: How are you doing?

Sheila: I’m hanging in there. Waiting for you to get me out the way you promised. Hey, you are still going to come through for me, aren’t you?

Bill: These last few weeks have been surreal for me.

Sheila: Yeah, for me too.

Bill: I’m working on everything to get you released. I can’t stop thinking about you.

Sheila: Well then, get me out of here soon so we can be together again.

Bill: Are you sure that’s what you want?

Sheila: Are you seriously asking me that?

Bill: I’m not talking about getting you out. I’m talking about whatever this is between us, whatever these feelings are that have arisen so quickly. Are they real? I’ve got to know, sheila. Are they real?

[ Dramatic music ]

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: I heard what you said, bill, and I can see it in your eyes. The two women you care about most in the world hurt you, rejected you. And along comes sheila because that’s what she does. She senses vulnerability and she preys on it. Sheila is a dangerous psychopath who should never see the light of day again. Thank god you finally realized it.

Sheila: I don’t understand. Why am I here?

Officer: The visitation room? Gee, I wonder.

Sheila: Is he tall, dark and handsome?

Officer: Maybe in his dreams.

[ Buzzer sounding ]

Mike: Of all the gin joints in all the towns.

Sheila: Mike, what are you doing here?

[ Knocking on door ]

Li: How are you on this fabulous day?

Finn: Hey, mom.

Li: I came over as soon as I heard the wonderful news. Sheila carter’s been captured.

Li: I saw the news online and couldn’t believe what I was reading.

Finn: Yeah, it’s true. Sheila’s back in custody.

Li: Thank god. The thought of that woman on the loose, unhinged and desperate? After everything, being locked up behind bars is exactly what she deserves.

Sheila: How’d you get in here to see me?

Mike: I made some friends, I pulled some strings so I could see you face to beautiful face.

[ Sheila chuckling ] So, it finally caught up with you, huh?

Sheila: It’s only temporary. I am not gonna be in here very long.

Steffy: Last night really worried me, that you would even think of turning my mother in for shooting you to keep sheila out of prison. Blackmail finn and me. I didn’t understand why and I– I still don’T. But thankfully, you reconsidered. You called 9-1-1 and now sheila is behind bars where she belongs. I just wanna make sure we’re good. That you’re no longer threatening my mother and you never will again. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition.

Li: It’s such a relief to know that sheila’s not out in the world stalking her next victim. That woman should never walk free. I’ve seen how evil she is.

Finn: I hate to think how terrified you must have been when she found us.

Li: It wasn’t a good night.

[ Li grunting ] Let go! Ah! Like you love finn. Not like his real mother does. No, get off!

[ Car honking ] Back off, you crazy bitch!

[ Crashing ]

[ Li shouting ]

Finn: I’ll never forgive her. Sheila shot my wife, she forced your car off a bridge where it bursts into flames. If she had it her way, you’d both be dead.

Li: Thankfully, bill spencer found me. He saved me. Flew you to monaco so you could reunite with steffy, and now he’s done another wonderful thing. Bill’s responsible for sheila being back in custody.

Mike: What did you mean when– when you said you wouldn’t be staying here that long.

Sheila: It’s true.

Mike: I wouldn’t recommend a breakout on your own. Prison officials will be watching you. They still have egg on their face from the last time you escaped, with my help, I might add.

Sheila: I remember that. Don’t worry, I will take your advice. I won’t try to escape. I won’t have to.

Mike: So, what are you going to do? Flash that beautiful smile at some other guard as you just sail out the door? Hell, it’d probably work. Aim it at me, you can have anything I got.

Sheila: Oh, and what exactly would that be?

Mike: Well, unfortunately, not much at the moment.

Sheila: Yeah, but your heart is in the right place, mike.

Mike: I’m sorry you ended up back here, but I’m happy for me. It’s no secret that I love you, sheila. Now, we’re finally together, sort of.

Sheila: And well, enjoy it while you can because my days in this hellhole are numbered.

Steffy: I’m not trying to justify what my mother did, but there were extenuating circumstances back then. My mom wasn’t in her right mind. We both know why. Look, I don’t wanna rehash all of that. That’s a night I’m always gonna regret. Right now, I need to focus on my mother and the extreme way she reacted.

Bill: By putting a bullet in my back.

Steffy: You said you were going to stay quiet.

Bill: And I have.

Steffy: I just wanna make sure that you intend to keep your word. My mother is not like sheila. She came here to confront you about me unarmed. She shot you with your own gun in a spontaneous moment. You know my mother. She is a good person, she helps people. She tried to help sheila. She saved her life.

Bill: Sheila did the same for taylor.

Steffy: Are you kidding? My mom was dangling off a side of a roof so she could stop sheila from jumping! My mom tried to help a woman who is beyond it! Maybe that was what you were trying to do last night. You were trying to help her, you were trying to defend her. I don’t know and I– I– I don’T. I don’t want to know, but bill, think about all the people she’s hurt. The people you care about. Sheila belongs behind bars and she should never be free again.

Bill: I hear what you’re saying.

Steffy: You do?

Bill: Yes, I do.

Music (“I swear”) plays

Li: The news said sheila was at bill’s house when she was arrested. What was she doing there?

Finn: Well, it seems like she’s got some kind of history with everyone we know.

Li: Oh, thank you. Not that it matters. The only thing that matters is that she’s finally back in custody. No longer a threat to you, steffy or my precious grandson.

Finn: Well, if there’s anyone who should never see the light of day again, it’s sheila.

Li: She’s out of your life, son. You don’t have to think about sheila again.

Finn: I hope not.

Li: I get it. She’s a criminal mastermind. It’s hard to believe someone like that can be stopped. I still have nightmares about what she did to you, not knowing if you survived. Seeing you in that hospital bed so far from me, all I could do was keep your body alive and pray you come back. Then suddenly, sheila’s there.

Finn: I’m so sorry, mom.

Li: It’s all right. It’s okay. I’m just so grateful you’re here. You’re alive, strong, brave and beautiful. Evil does not get to triumph.

Mike: Oh, sheila, sheila, sheila. Take it from somebody who knows, the sooner you accept your fate, the better off you’ll be.

Guard: Hey, mike. Wrap it up. I can’t get into trouble.

Mike: Yeah, yeah. Look, I’ll be thinking of you in my cell. Think of me too. I know this isn’t what you would’ve chosen, but I’m all you got. We’re finally together. Maybe for the rest of our lives.

Sheila: I– I hate to disappoint you again, but that’s not gonna happen. You see, I’ve got connections of my own.

Steffy: You’re actually hearing me.

Bill: I am.

Steffy: Sheila is dangerous. She belongs in jail, not my mom.

Bill: I hear what you’re saying loud and clear, and you’re right about all of it. Everything she’s done in the past. She’s hurt so many people, destroyed so many lives.

Steffy: Yes. Yes. You don’t know the enormous relief it is to hear you say that. So, we agree? Sheila will pay for her crimes and you won’t say anything about my mother shooting you.

Bill: Well, here’s the thing. I’ve hurt people too, only to be filled with remorse after the fact, once I– once I realized all the thoughtless damage that I’d done. That’s why I understand sheila. That’s why I know that no matter what I do, I could never hurt her.

Steffy: Wait, bill. What are you saying? Overactive bladder? I’ve been there.

[ Sheila sighing ]

Sheila: Why am I still here?

Officer: We keeping you from something?

Sheila: Well, you’re normally in such a rush to get me back to my luxury accommodations.

Officer: You’re popular today. You got another visitor.

Sheila: Did they give you a name?

Officer: I’m not your assistant.

Sheila: Are you always this grumpy? Well, isn’t this a delightful surprise?

Li: Couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see you in your natural habitat. Blue isn’t your color, by the way.

Sheila: Your timing is excellent, li. I was starting to get lonely.

Li: Get used to it. You’re going to be very lonely here for the rest of your miserable life.

Sheila: You’re so confident.

Li: I am. You may have escaped once with the help of your partner in crime, but mike guthrie is behind bars too. There’s no way out this time, sheila. And no one’s happier about it than me.

Sheila: Oh, I think steffy might be enjoying the moment as well.

Li: Yeah, well, finn’s pretty thrilled too, now that you’re no longer a threat to his wife and son. We’ve all been waiting for this day.

Sheila: And what day is that, li?

Li: Judgement day. Where you will finally be held accountable for your crimes. Evil never triumphs. You shot my son.

Sheila: Our son.

Li: That just makes it more despicable, doesn’t it? You shot steffy, ran me off the road and almost killed me, so you bet I had to come feast my eyes on this glorious sight. Sheila carter behind bars, where you’re going to be for the rest of your life.

[ Sheila laughing ]

Steffy: What is happening, bill? You told me I was right about sheila, that you heard me.

Bill: I do hear you. And you’re right. But there’s one very important thing you’re not taking into account. And that is the… the emptiness in my heart. I’ve somehow managed to hurt every woman that I have ever loved. I need someone who can handle me. A woman I can’t hurt. A woman who will stay, like sheila.

Steffy: Bill, what is wrong with you? You are talking crazy right now. I get that you’re hurting. I get that you feel rejected by katie and by brooke. You feel lonely and misunderstood, but for god’s sake, bill, sheila is not the answer.

Bill: Yes, she is.

Steffy: No, she’s not! Are you kidding? A– are you kidding right now? That you would even entertain the thought of turning my mother in for shooting you in favor of sheila! You consider being with that woman? I need you to assure me that my mother is safe. That I have your word that you are not going to say anything to anyone, especially the police. Bill. Bill, please. Please do not do this. She is going to use you. She’ll use you and move on to her next victim.

Sheila: And don’t forget what this represents to you. The power. I love you so much, bill.

[ Bill sniffling ]

Bill: I will not let sheila spend the rest of her life in prison. If you and finn press charges, taylor pays for her crime. Sheila’s life for your mother’s freedom. That is my deal.

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: Sheila is pure evil! Bill, you’re devoting yourself to her. You’re blackmailing me. You’re threatening my mother’s happiness and freedom. Sheila terrorized my mother.

Brooke: Look, I just need you to understand and respect that you and I are not going to be together, even though when we were, it was very magical. It’s just not going to happen again.

Katie: Would I like to reconcile with you and be a family again and spend my life with you? Yes, that’s what I’ve always wanted. I know you love me.

Bill: Of course, I do.

Katie: But you also love my sister. And that’s something that I can’t live with. Goodbye, bill.

Sheila: I love you so much, bill. I’m yours for life.

Steffy: Bill has lost his mind. How can he be aligning himself with sheila?

Finn: To wrap my head around that…

Steffy: Thankou.

Finn: Here. I know you didn’t sleep.

Steffy: Yeah. I’m too worried about what this could mean for my mom.

Finn: I know, and then we find out on the news last night that sheila was arrested?

Steffy: Sheila’s behind bars where she belongs, but who called the police.

Finn: Well, obviously not us.

Steffy: Thanks to bill with his quid pro quo. We keep sheila out of jail or bill will expose my mother for shooting him.

Finn: Whoa.

Steffy: What?

Finn: Bill was the one who turned sheila in.

Steffy: Bill?

Finn: Yeah. That’s what it says.

Steffy: Hopefully that means that he’s finally come to his senses.

Carter: Are they sure it’s sheila?

Katie: They’re saying it’s her. That sheila carter is in custody. Minus one toe.

Carter: I don’t want to be a skeptic, but I’d hate for all of us to be fooled.

Katie: I don’t think it’s a rumor. I’m looking at like, four different websites and… and the police just confirmed. Sheila carter is in custody.

Carter: So, bill called 9-1-1 and had sheila apprehended. Why was she even over there in the first place?

[ Door unlatching ]

Liam: Dad! We were worried about you.

Bill: I told you guys on the phone last night.

Wyatt: You said like two words!

Bill: I was– I was tired. But um… I’m good. Nothing to worry about.

Liam: Nothing to worry– oh, he says there’s nothing to worry about.

Wyatt: You had a homicidal maniac literally in your house.

Bill: She’s gone now.

Liam: Yeah, that’s great, but why was she here in the first place?

Wyatt: Dad, why was sheila here? What’s going on?

Steffy: I am so confused. Bill was over here with sheila acting like some lovesick teenager, and then he hands her over to the police?

Finn: Yeah, it a pretty big 180.

Steffy: Seriously. He stops us from calling the cops and then he goes ahead and does it himself?

Finn: You think sheila could’ve threatened him? I mean, maybe they got into it on the drive back home.

Sheila: Anything’s possible.

Finn: Maybe sheila put him up to the whole thing.

Steffy: I’m hoping that’s the case, but bill’s not one to be easily manipulated, so.

Finn: So then, I guess he just woke up.

Steffy: I need to find out and see if bill is dropping this whole horrible blackmail scheme. Sometimes you’re so busy taking care of everyone else

Katie: Well, one thing’s for sure. I did not have sheila gets arrested at bill’s house on my bingo card.

Carter: Tell me about it. And what was she doing there? Did she break in? Could bill have gotten hurt?

Katie: I don’t know. I thank god he didn’T. I mean, thank god will wasn’t there. I mean, the woman is unhinged. She could’ve shown up at any of our houses. Thank god we ramped up security.

Carter: Even then, you never know.

Katie: No, you’re right. Bill has 24 hour security and– and the place is like a fortress. Clearly, it didn’t help him.

Carter: Thankfully, she’s exactly where she belongs.

Katie: Yes. We will all rest easier knowing she is curled up in a cold, hard cell.

Carter: Mm. I think we might have to do some celebrating later.

Katie: Oh, yeah. I think we’ll be celebrating tonight.

Carter: Okay, I just can’t get this out of my head. I’m curious how it all happened. Aren’t you?

Katie: I’m gonna have to talk to bill, get all the details. One thing’s for sure, he’s gonna get a big thank you from all of us. He’s a hero for catching sheila.

Liam: Dad, what was sheila carter even doing here?

Bill: Now, let’s go over this one more time just to make sure we are absolutely clear. I’m gonna tell them that you showed up here, desperately pleading your case, I shut you down and called the cops. That’s our story. Now, you’re going to be in jail for a bit, that’s a necessary step. I will then do everything in my power to get you out. And you will be a free woman again and we could be together.

Sheila: You don’t know how much I’m counting on that.

Bill: This is bill spencer. Sheila carter is in my home. Hurry! She’s gotta be apprehended. Hurry!

Wyatt: Dad, where’d you go just now? Come on. We want to know why sheila was here.

Bill: She uh, she just showed up, you know? Pleading her case. So, I held onto her and I called 9-1-1.

Wyatt: That’s insane because you’re literally like the last person who would ever feel sympathy for her.

Liam: Exactly. Why– why would she put her freedom at risk by coming here? What the hell was she thinking?

Bill: Can’t answer that.

Wyatt: Clearly, she was desperate.

Liam: So desperate.

Wyatt: Right?

Liam: We literally thought that she kidnapped you.

Wyatt: Yeah, and as soon as we found the earring and the wig and everything, we knew she was here.

Bill: Yeah, you mentioned that last night.

Wyatt: Yeah, which is why we had to call chief baker immediately and tell him everything we found.

Liam: Yeah, and oh, by the way, by the way, where were you when we showed up last night? ‘Cause we looked everywhere. We searched the entire house.

Wyatt: Yeah, and your car was gone. Where were you, dad?

Finn: How could bill have even considered siding with sheila?

Steffy: Some kind of psychotic break.

Finn: Well, it sure looked like something was going on between those two.

Steffy: Ugh. Just the thought of sheila and bill together grosses me out. Like, what is he thinking? He knows about all the despicable things she’s done.

Finn: She shot you.

Steffy: She shot you. Her own son!

Finn: Well luckily, my real mom was able to nurse me back to health.

Steffy: Sheila tried to kill li. She ran her off the road, into the ocean. Like, my god, finn. I don’t–

Finn: Look, we’re finally getting some justice, right?

Steffy: Look, it is comforting that sheila is behind bars, but something– something feels off. First, bill says that we need to show sheila mercy, and that we have to be quiet about them or my mom goes to prison, and then look what he does. Like, it doesn’t make sense.

Finn: Yeah. Well, maybe bill just realized how delusional he was being.

Steffy: Or it’s some part of his grand plan.

Finn: You really think so?

Steffy: I don’t know. But please, do not say anything about bill and his blackmail. It’s just– it’s too risky.

Finn: Come here. It’s gonna be okay.

Steffy: I hope– I don’t–

Finn: It’s gonna be okay. I’m not gonna let anything bad happen to our family.

Steffy: Oh, god. And now please welcome ana montoya.

Katie: Well, brooke is ecstatic. She heard the news. Can’t believe it.

Carter: I never thought I’d say this about bill spencer, but I agree with you. He’s a hero. He saved the day. He could’ve saved someone’s life possibly.

Katie: I mean, who knows what sheila would’ve done next.

Carter: Scared to think who her next target might’ve been.

Katie: It’s game over now. I’m sure chief baker was more than happy to throw the book at her. And now, she’ll never see the light of day again. Thanks to bill.

Carter: And bill’s the one to make sheila finally pay for her crimes. Who would’ve thought?

Katie: Oh, I’m sure we’re gonna hear about this for years and years. He’ll tell this story over and over again about how he single handedly took down sheila carter.

Carter: Hey, bill’s the reason we don’t have to worry about her anymore. I say let the man boast. He’s earned it.

Katie: I mean, face to face with a violent felon, I don’t know what I would’ve done if she had showed up at my place. I would’ve freaked out. I mean, especially living all by myself.

Carter: That’s when you come to my place.

Katie: Well, you did vow to keep me and my family safe.

Carter: And I meant it. I know you don’t need protecting.

Katie: No, I appreciate it. I always feel safe with you.

Wyatt: Dad, where were you last night?

Bill: Out.

Liam: Oh, my god. What if sheila was here while we were over? Like hiding?

Wyatt: Oh, wow.

Bill: All– all right, look. Bottom line, I took care of sheila.

Wyatt: Well, thank god you got that lunatic out of here.

Bill: I don’t know that I would call her a lunatic.

Wyatt: Okay, how about crazy? How about murderous psycho? I don’t know.

Bill: What– whatever. She’s, uh, she’s in custody.

Liam: Because of you.

Bill: E– enough already.

Liam: No, no, no, no. Let’s not minimize that. I mean, what you did took bravery, right? It’s sheila.

Wyatt: Society owes you a huge favor. Think of all the lives that she almost ruined.

Liam: Finn, steffy, taylor, brooke. I mean, all of them owe you now.

Bill: All right, boys– boys. Really. Um, you know I’m– I’m just really tired. I– I didn’t sleep much last night.

Liam: Well, yeah. I mean, I– I– I– I could barely imagine what you must have gone through with sheila.

Wyatt: Yeah, seriously, dad. She could’ve snapped. She could’ve done something to really hurt you. We we’re concerned.

Bill: Sheila carter will never hurt me. But I, um, I really appreciate your concern. I’m fine. Everything’s going to be fine.

Finn: Look, bill and sheila, it’s totally illogical.

Steffy: I get that bill feels rejected, but this is next level. To side with sheila is a death wish. She’s gonna go down and she’s gonna bring him with her.

Finn: Then nothing good could come from it. That’s for sure.

Steffy: I should go talk to him.

Finn: All right. I’ll come with you.

Steffy: No. I think it’s best if I go alone.

Finn: Steffy, bill has been acting so strangely. That makes me nervous.

Steffy: I– I get that and I love you for being so supportive and caring, but I can handle this. I can. I’m gonna stay calm, play it smart and set aside that he’s blackmailing my mother.

Finn: It’s risky.

Steffy: I know. I won’t do anything rile him up.

Finn: Look, it’s just… I don’t trust the guy. Okay? But, I believe in you. So, just promise me that you’ll be careful and call me immediately if you need backup, okay?

Steffy: I promise. I love you. Find your beat

[ Phone pinging ]

Sheila: Remember the power this represents to you. You take no prisoners. You win at all costs.

Steffy: Bill.

Bill: Steffy?

Steffy: I need to talk to you about last night.

Bill: Not a good time.

Steffy: What happened last night shocked me. When you showed up, when sheila was there, saying the things that you did, threatening my mother to protect sheila.

Bill: I covered for taylor for years, steffy.

Steffy: And we’re grateful for that, but why the sudden shift? What’s driving this? Finn and I heard that you called the police on sheila. Is that true?

Bill: Yes.

Steffy: Does that mean you’ve come to your senses? Sheila is dangerous. She’s evil. Pure evil. She stalked my family for years. She shot brooke, she shot my mom. Bill, she shot me and finn.

Bill: I haven’t forgotten.

Steffy: I’m not sure what kind of relationship formed between the two of you, but yesterday, I was convinced that you were actually developing feelings for her. But now, she’s in jail. There’s no future with her because we will be– we will be pressing full charges. Attempted murder charges. Look, my only hope is that– bill, are you okay? Hey, look at me. I know you. You didn’t mean what you said. Does sheila have something on you? Is she blackmailing you? What other explanation can there be? You can’t have real feelings for a woman like her. She is totally deranged. Look, I know you feel hurt and abandoned by katie and brooke. By all of us. Maybe we should’ve been more sensitive to your feelings. Please tell me this isn’t true. Please tell me you are not turning to sheila. You said something last night regarding going public about my mother shooting you here, in this very room, all those years ago. Bill, please don’t do that. You cannot side with sheila. She is dangerous and psychotic. Please, for your own sake. For all of our sakes. You can’t do it.

Recap written by Suzanne

Steffy and Finn, upset, can’t figure out why Bill is siding with Sheila. Bill and Sheila tell them that they’re together now and have been living together. He insists again that they drop the charges against Sheila, or he’ll press charges against Taylor (for shooting him years ago). Steffy fills Finn in on why Taylor shot him. Liam and Wyatt worry that Sheila may have kidnapped Bill, so they call the police and speak with Chief Baker. Bill and Sheila go to his house. He plans to call the police on her, and then she’ll go to jail, and he’ll get her out. Then they can be together. She tells him that she loves him. He phones the police. Baker and the other police arrive and take Sheila away.
