Brooke: It– it just all feels so… unreal. Finally knowing the truth. But I knew something was missing, I did. I knew I wouldn’t sabotage my sobriety or my life with you. I knew it, ridge.

Ridge: I know you did. But sheila saw an opening and she took it.

Brooke: So, what does that mean? You… finally coming home to me?

Taylor: Here’s that tea I was telling you about. It’s supposed to be really calming.

Steffy: Thank you.

Taylor: Not that much can help right now.

Steffy: No, this is what I need– you and the kids, the family around me. Just you sitting here. This is good.

Taylor: I’m so proud of you, sweetheart. What you did today, the strength that you showed. As your mom, it was– it was amazing to witness.

Steffy: Couldn’t have done it without you. Sheila didn’t win. How are you holding up? Now that we know the truth about what happened with brooke? On top of everything else, it’s a lot.

Taylor: Oh, no, honey. It’s– like I said before, the last thing in the world you need to worry about is me.

Steffy: You don’t have to spare me just because, um, I went through something more traumatic. You’re going through it, too. What’s going on?

Taylor: Well, it’s something that you said earlier, just– just confirmed what I was already thinking about how this could play out for your father and me.

[ Notification sounds ]

Bill: Everything okay?

Liam: Yeah, it’s good. It’s just hope. She’s, uh– she’s coming back now.

Wyatt: You want dad and me to clear out?

Liam: What? No. Why would you need to leave just because hope’s on her way?

Bill: Well… you know, your wife and I, we don’t always agree on everything. However, there is one thing that we both want: Brooke’s happiness.

Liam: Oh, see, that’s nice. Was that so–

Bill: I haven’t finished yet, son. I don’t know that hope’s gonna be so keen on this next part.

Wyatt: Okay, so what is it?

Bill: Well, you know that brooke’s happiness thing I was just talking about? Well, she ain’t going to find that with ridge.

Liam: So here’s– here’s the thing, dad. I know that you’re only looking out for brooke. And I think that’s noble. There’s just a teeny tiny little baby, itty-bitty detail I think you’re missing.

Bill: Oh, cannot wait. Enlighten me.

Liam: Brooke is madly, deeply in love with ridge. And it’s not entirely clear that she’s ever not been.

[ Bill clearing throat ]

Bill: Anything at all going on in there? At all? Are you forgetting that brooke and I were madly and deeply in love? Hmm?

Liam: Yeah, I totally forgot.

Hope: Oh. Wow. I was not expecting a full house.

Wyatt: Welcome home. We were just discussing how delusional dad is, and a topic you might want to jump in on, that you’re also well versed in– uh, your mother.

Steffy: I didn’t mean to make you start doubting dad. That’s what you think? He’s going to go back to brooke?

Taylor: I mean, I hope not. I just– I– I can’t believe that– that your father reconnecting with me all stems from one of sheila’s manipulations.

Taylor: No, dad’s been sincere with you. There’s been a spark even before sheila intervened. I can’t believe dad’s just going to throw away what he’s been sharing with you.

Taylor: You know, when I– when I came back to town, I had fully accepted that your father was with brooke. Even though I knew I still loved him, I was okay. Then we got this chance.

Steffy: Exactly. You got that chance. Everything you share with dad, it can’t just be erased because of what sheila did to brooke. You can’t let it, mom.

Brooke: Even when you were questioning me about how all of this could have happened, you still supported me, ridge. You went to meetings with me. You showed me a lot of love. I can see how this has affected you. You hate what sheila did to me.

Ridge: Of course I hate it. What she did was sick. And– and I wish I would have made it home that night. I could have protected you.

Brooke: But you were there for me right after it happened. I don’t know the kind of downward spiral I would have had if you weren’t there, making sure that I got the help that I needed, that I stayed sober. So… you did protect me.

Ridge: And I always will. As long as you need me.

Brooke: I will always need you. And… what I need right now is for you to tell me you’re coming home.

Liam: My– my dad is just– he’s– he’s– he’s concerned that brooke is wasting all her time on ridge.

Bill: Brooke is groveling for a man that has repeatedly proven himself not worthy.

Hope: Well, look, I’m not thrilled that ridge is holding this over her.

Wyatt: Careful, agreeing with him goes straight to his head.

[ Liam scoffing ] Uh, look, so brooke really doesn’t know why she picked up the bottle that night?

Hope: Well, I mean, she was upset that ridge couldn’t make it back. But, I mean, for her to then pick up the bottle of vodka?

Liam: He– here’s the thing. Brooke’s sobriety is really important to her. So I don’t– it just– it may remain a mystery why she drank that night at all.

Bill: Liam said that deacon didn’t pressure the drinking. Are you sure about that?

Hope: I– I know it might be hard to believe but what happened between the two of them, it– it was, for the most part, innocent. I-it was a new year’s eve kiss. Yes, my dad stayed the night to look after her but that’s it. And my mom apologized for it. She owned up to it. I just wish that ridge would accept it and just finally move on with her. Because, you know, whether you like it or not, ridge and my mom, they are…

Liam & hope: Destined!

Bill: Don’t, don’t, don’t– funny. Very funny. You know, there’s nothing funny about that “destiny” garbage. And it’s going to make me puke. All right? I mean, how– how is that destiny thing working for ridge and brooke while he is staying under the same roof with taylor? Who knows what could be happening? They have a history, too, don’t they?

Steffy: What I’ve witnessed between you and dad isn’t based on some scheme. The way you support him, the way you two look at each other. There’s so much love there. And it’s been wonderful to see you two together, like, as a team. Don’t let sheila tarnish this.

Taylor: I appreciate your confidence. Maybe I’ll lean on yours in the absence of my own.

Steffy: I’m sorry if I planted any seeds of doubt.

Taylor: No, honey. You, you didn’t plant any seeds. That was– that was me. And the second that your father walked out the door, they sprouted.

Taylor: Yeah, but we agreed that dad should go and tell brooke. I mean, she deserves to know what happened that night.

Taylor: Of course. Of course. She needs to know the reason she relapsed. And hearing it from ridge is– is going to mean a lot to her.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right. And… yes, brooke was tricked into drinking and that was awful. But it doesn’t change the fact that she did turn to deacon. Brooke isn’t completely blameless here. I don’t think he’s going to rush right back into our arms. You’ve shown him what true love and partnership really looks like, what he deserves. Let’s just hope he doesn’t forget that.

Ridge: Sheila made you drink, a recovering alcoholic. It’s just like poisoning you.

Brooke: Ugh! I– I thought that I had carelessly just thrown away my hard work with my sobriety, with my– my life, with you. But I didn’T. I didn’T. It was sheila. She took that from me!

Ridge: So you don’t have to blame yourself for that anymore.

Brooke: Oh, my god. Really? I mean, I–it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off me. I just– I just want to move on from that, ridge. I want to move on from that whole night that– I want to forget it even happened. ‘Cause you’re my husband. And I love you, more than anything. And I really believe that we can make up for lost time by just moving on together. You believe that, too, right?

Ridge: Is that what you’re asking me? You’re asking me to move past that night? I would love that more than anything else. Sheila made you drink. We can reconcile it. That’s– that… we’ll be okay with that. But… you ended up with deacon.

Brooke: Oh… okay. Oh.

Ridge: You were there for him.

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: What do I do with that?

You never know

what opportunities

Bill: Ridge ran to taylor so fast, I have freaking whiplash. Did he give any consideration at all to how hurtful and insensitive that was for brooke?

Liam: I mean, yeah, he probably did–

Bill: I wasn’t looking for an actual response, liam. I think we all know what the answer is.

Hope: Look, bill, I– I actually really do appreciate your stance on all this. It is clear that you still care a lot about my mother.

Liam: Yeah, he– he– he means well.

Wyatt: Sometimes.

Liam: Sometimes.

Wyatt: Look, we all want what’s best for brooke, right? But there’s no sense in debating it if she’s not here to give her input.

Liam: You know what? Wyatt is right. I think this is a good place to maybe, uh, table this. Uh, it’s been an emotional few days.

Wyatt: I agree. Drive me home.

Bill: We’ll go. Just do me a favor. Think about what I said. You can appeal to brooke in a way that no one else can.

Hope: I’m choosing to remain optimistic about ridge and my mother. He is… what my mom wants, bill.

Taylor: Your father’s already forgiven brooke’s night with deacon.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s true. But then he went to confront deacon. And brooke showed up and defended him. He didn’t forgive her for that.

Taylor: Ah, she was just trying to stop them from fighting.

Steffy: She couldn’t find a different way to stop them from fighting? Maybe like defend her husband? What I’m trying to understand here is why are you so team brooke?

Taylor: Oh, no, no, no, no. I– I want your father to come home to me. I– I really do. But, steffy, it’s– it’s complicated. He has a– he has a life and family with brooke. Long history.

Steffy: He’s never going to have real, lasting peace and happiness with brooke. Not the way he can with you.

Ridge: I don’t– I don’t want this to be a guilt trip, I’m not– I’m not trying to cause you any pain.

Brooke: Yeah. Well, it’s starting to feel like one.

Ridge: That’s not my intention. But you still turned to another man. Again. And why do we do this? Why don’t we break the cycle? And I’m not saying that there aren’t things that I regret, things that I shouldn’t have done. There are many.

Brooke: Ridge, what are you talking about? I think we’re worth it. We need to work through this together.

Ridge: You don’t think there’s a time in any relationship we should maybe stop causing each other pain?

Brooke: Yes, of course. But we need to break that pattern. We need to start fresh. We can choose that–

Ridge: You don’t think I want to start fresh? I would love that more than anything. But how do I do that? I’m living at steffy’S. Taylor’s there. She’s been nothing but kind to me. No expectations. She just wants me to be happy. She’s an amazing woman. And you are an amazing woman. Two great women in my life. And you’re asking me to hurt one of ’em? Which one? I was on an antidepressant,

Liam: Huh. Well, that’s– that’s, uh, my dad for you. Big personality. Strong opinions. Cannot be unheard.

Hope: Well, as you know, normally, I can only handle him in small doses, but tonight, I… was pleasantly surprised.

Liam: Yeah. He– he did bring up fair points.

Hope: I did appreciate him trying to stick up for my mom and support her. But do you think he’s right?

Liam: Probabilistically, no. I think you want me to be serious, though. So, okay, here we go. Um… do I think– I– I don’t think he’s entirely wrong. I think ridge is not being fair to your mom. Um, but I also see where ridge is coming from. He feels betrayed. He feels hurt. My dad is obviously not taking ridge’s feelings into account at all, which is shocking to absolutely no one anywhere. But I don’t– I don’t love that ridge went running to taylor right away. I think that feels hypocritical. And I know that it’s good for him to be spending time with steffy right now but who are we kidding? He was over there before any of this even went down. And is this helping you at all?

Hope: Hah, it is. It is. I just feel like I can’t give up on ridge and my mother just yet.

Steffy: Your future with dad is real. And you should know that, too. Like, he’s really shown up for you, for all of us. I think he wants to be back with his family. And he finally sees what you, thomas and I have seen for so long, is that this is where he belongs, where he feels truly appreciated and supported. You need to trust that. Trust him. Dad will be back.

Brooke: I know learning about sheila doesn’t absolve me of everything. I know that. But I never would have kissed deacon if I wasn’t drinking. And I know that sounds like another excuse. But it isn’T. And you’re here. I feel the love that you have for me. And I know I’m not making that up either, ridge.

Ridge: No. I love you. And this may sound weird but maybe I love you even more now because of what sheila did and how you handled it. I just need some time.

Brooke: I understand that. I do. And I’m not going to stay at steffy’s anymore because that’s not right either. I’m going to move in with my dad, spend some time at the family home.

Brooke: Oh! Okay. The place where we first laid eyes on each other.

Ridge: Is that where that was?

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: I know that. I’ll never forget it. I’m doing what I’m doing because I do love you so much. Does that make sense?

Brooke: Yeah. We are soulmates, right? I always believed that. And I know deep down that we’re going to get through this, ridge. And we’re going to have a big and beautiful and bright life together. You are my destiny. You are.

Brooke: Oh! This is– this is just so much.

Ridge: I know, it’s a lot. It’s a lot to take in. But steffy remembers that night very clearly now.

Brooke: I mean– it really was sheila? She… shot steffy? And she killed her own son?

Ridge: She confessed to all of it.

Brooke: Oh, my god, this is unbelievable.

Ridge: And she’s going to spend the rest of her days in prison. She’s not going to terrorize you anymore.,

[Heavy sigh]


Taylor: I missed all the signs.

Steffy: Mom, as bad as sheila is, no one could have pictured her doing something like this.

Taylor: If people weren’t capable of change, I wouldn’t have a career. I see it all the time. I wanted so badly for hayes’ grandmother to have a chance at redemption. But sheila’s too dangerous for society, let alone this family.

Steffy: We have to tell li. We have to track her down. And we have to tell her that finn’s birth mother is the one who killed him.

Liam: Good timing! You guys showing up right now. Kids just went to sleep. Hope’s out, having a girls night.

Bill: Yeah, good for her! Having a little cabin fever, was she?

Liam: Okay. I got it. I got it. You don’t like our place. It’s fine.

Bill: No, no, no. It’s not that. You know, I– I find it, uh, quaint.M it’s, uh, it– it’s rustic.

Liam: You know what, it is rustic. Thank you. It is rustic. And that’s part of the charm.

Bill: Do I not pay you enough, liam?

Liam: Oh, my god.

Wyatt: Dad, come on. It’s their home. It’s cozy.

Liam: It’s– cozy is a bit condescending, but you know what? We like it, all right? The kids love it. H– hope really likes being near brooke, actually, especially lately. She’s, umm… she’s really concerned about her mom, ever since her separation from ridge.

Wyatt: So ridge is still staying out in malibu?

Liam: Yeah. I– I mean… on the one hand, it is nice for him to be staying out there with steffy while she recovers.

Bill: Yeah, it’s tough for brooke though, isn’t it? I mean her husband leaves her in the lurch, when she’s at her most vulnerable. I mean– her dressmaker should have been up there, consoling her.

Liam: Not exactly as cut and dry as you’re making it out to be…

Bill: I know. I know. Uh, “poor little ridge.” He got his fragile ego bruised. Brooke should have kicked him to the curb years ago.

Steffy: It all feels very surreal. Like if I look at the door long enough, finn will walk through it. Or if I like close my eyes hard enough, it’ll just be a bad dream and I’ll wake up, and my husband will be here.

Taylor: Oh, steffy. I wish that more than anything for you.

[ Sighing ]

Steffy: Finn’s death would be easier to accept if it was like– like a stranger or something. You know, some guy just– desperate for money.

[ Sighing heavily ] It’s like even more senseless now, knowing that sheila’s the one responsible.

Brooke: I can only imagine what steffy is going through.

Ridge: Well we’re all still in shock, but I guess, shouldn’t be too surprised, right?

Brooke: Right. Yeah, I guess not, given sheila’s history. But for her to target your daughter. And to take hayes’ father away.

Ridge: And she’ll be brought to justice, not just for killing finn, but for attacking us.

Brooke: I’m still trying to process what you said. She switched the labels on the champagne bottle.

Ridge: She conned you into drinking. This whole time it was sheila. It was always sheila. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Wyatt: So, for some reason, brooke decided to have a few drinks and kiss deacon.

Bill: And that’s what sent ridge packing.

Wyatt: I mean, I guess I could kind of see it.

Bill: For a kiss? Really, wyatt? You would leave your wife over one drunken kiss?

Liam: Dad, it’s not just the kiss. It’s the entire history of brooke and deacon.

Bill: Well, they have a kid together. Big deal. Alright? Brooke had a setback. It happens. She handled it appropriately. She called her sponsor. She got help. She’s been going to meetings. Was that good enough for ridge? No.

Liam: I know, but–

Bill: He dumped her anyway.

Liam: Ridge was upset ’cause brooke looked like she was making excuses for deacon. And that would piss you off too, if you were with brooke. Look, I’m not– I’m not defending ridge. I– I agree with you. I think everything you’re saying is true. And so would hope, even.

Bill: What hope’s parents did was g-rated. And ridge is a big boy. Did he show any sympathy for his alcoholic wife? No. He did what he always does. Went crying to taylor.

Taylor: How are you doing? This is, by far, the hardest on you.

Steffy: I don’t think it’ll ever make sense to me.

Taylor: I know. It’s tragic, I– I can’t believe it happened.

Steffy: I can’t even remember what I said to him when I saw him last. Before he was– I can’t even remember if I told him I loved him.

Taylor: Hey, hey, hey. Steffy, finn knew how much you loved him. He told us every day how happy he was. And that’s all because of you.

Steffy: But if I could have more time with him. If I could have one more day with my husband. Oh, just watching him take his last breath, it was horrible.

Taylor: Oh honey. You know, I bet it was a comfort to finn, knowing that you were there with him in the final moments. Right by his side.

Steffy: No. It’s so unfair, mom. I mean, he’s the kindest– he was the most loving human being. It just hurts.

Taylor: I know it does.

Steffy: Oh, god. How are you doing? I mean, this– ah, this has to be hard for you too, in a different way, with– with dad.

Taylor: Oh.

Steffy: Knowing that sheila got brooke to drink. I mean, you have to be worried what this means for you and dad.

Brooke: I can’t think of myself right now. Not after what steffy’s been put through.

Ridge: Well, she’s trying to be strong, but– she has a lot of healing still ahead of her. But thank you. For thinking about my daughter.

Brooke: Of course, I’m thinking about her, ridge. She lost her husband. And not because of some random act of violence. It was at the hands of sheila.

Ridge: It’s unfathomable, all of it. Not– not just that she’s the shooter, but… but that she’s responsible for the shame you’ve been drowning in.

Brooke: I kept asking myself, why? Why would I do that? Why would I break my sobriety like that? Or risk the life that we built together?

Ridge: You said from the very beginning there’s outside forces at play.

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: But I– didn’t pay attention.

Brooke: I felt it. In the pit of my stomach. I couldn’t shake it. No matter what.

Ridge: Because you were right. It wasn’t you. It was sheila.

[ Exhaling ] You love rich, delicious ice cream.

Liam: And that’s pretty much the gist of it. Brooke’s been sober ever since that one little slip up. And she’s just trying to remain optimistic that ridge will come around.

Wyatt: I mean, that’s rough. Look, I wish her all the best.

Bill: Why would brooke possibly take back mister holier-than-thou after the way that he has repeatedly treated her?

Wyatt: Because it sounds like they both made mistakes, dad.

Bill: Brooke was under the influence, wyatt. It’s not the same thing. She– she never would’ve kissed that convict, sharpe, if she were sober.

Liam: I mean, that’s true. Alcohol definitely played a role that night.

Bill: Yeah, well, you see that, and I see that. But forrester’s blinded by his own self-righteousness.

Liam: Yeah, I– I mean, all we can do is hope that it works out somehow.

Bill: It’s not going to work out somehow. It’s not going to work out at all. Not as long as he’s playing ping pong with brooke and taylor. Well, like– like he’s special. Like, he’s what? God’s gift to women.

Wyatt: Oh, no, that’s you, dad. Everybody knows that.

Bill: The truth will set you free, right?

Liam: Alright. Okay, look, look, it’s– it’s bad that brooke is hurting. It’s bad that it’s taking a toll on hope. We can all agree on that. We just want them to be happy, right?

Wyatt: Yes.

>>Liam: Right? Right?

Bill: It’s gonna be hard for brooke to accept, but she’s not going to find happiness. Brooke is not going to find commitment. She’s not going to find anything with forrester. Especially now that taylor is back in town.

Taylor: Please don’t worry about me right now.

Steffy: Mom, you’re going through it, too.

Taylor: Oh! Not like you are, steffy. Especially after what you just remembered.

Steffy: Yeah. What I’m dealing with right now, it’s going to take a long time to process. It’s not– it’s not something I will ever get over. Hayes will have no memory of his father.

Taylor: But finn will live on in the stories you tell. It’s not the same.

Steffy: Not even close. But it’s been really healing, having you and dad here. It’s wonderful for the kids and– I know it’s been nice for you too.

Taylor: Well, no matter what, your father will always be fully engaged in your lives.

Steffy: Of course he will. I wasn’t questioning that. My dad’s over at brooke’s right now explaining what sheila did to her. You’re not wrong or selfish to be concerned about your future with dad. You don’t have to worry. Because the truth about sheila, it won’t change his feelings for you.

Ridge: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to overwhelm you, I thought you’d want to know.

Brooke: No, no, I’m just– I’m trying to piece it all together.

Ridge: Well. Sheila must overheard you when you were talking about this… non-alcoholic champagne. That champagne that eric had at christmas. I preordered some from il giardino.

Ridge: Right. And she switched the labels.

Brooke: Right. So I was drinking real champagne.

Ridge: And that was your trigger.

Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. You know what? That would explain everything. The taste. What it did to me physically. How I craved it, more and more.

Ridge: The missing piece.

Brooke: As as– much as i despise her, I really didn’t think she had a hand in this.

Ridge: I didn’t either.

Brooke: I– I’m just trying to figure it all out. I– I barely had any contact with her. Except she did come over here after it happened. And she had this wicked, wicked smile on her face. After I told her that I drank and deacon stayed here.

Ridge: Deacon. Well, she tried to justify what she did by saying that you tried to keep her away from finn and the baby.

Brooke: Oh, god. She is sick. And she is twisted. If– if we could have just kept her away somehow.

Ridge: Finn would still be alive. And we wouldn’t be where we are now.

Brooke: Yeah, you’re right. Things would be very different. Finn we would be at the hospital, saving lives. And steffy’s beautiful family would be in tact. And you and I, we would be together. We would be living here in our home. A lot of folks ask me why their dishwasher

Steffy: I’ve seen firsthand what you two mean to each other.

Taylor: Yes. Well, your father and I have a great relationship. We are committed to our family, helping you thrive.

Steffy: It’s more than that.

Taylor: Well, sure. I mean, this has been great for ridge and me. We love spending time together. With you, and thomas, and our grandkids.

Steffy: Your relationship is not just about us. There’s a mutual attraction there, like– a chemistry that has nothing to do with me and thomas.

Taylor: Well, we do enjoy each other’s company. You know, I– I missed laughing with him. I didn’t realize how much.

Steffy: Same goes for dad. It’s really nice watching the two of you together. It’s been great since you’ve come back to L.A. You have the little looks that you give each other across the room, having coffee on the deck. You know that he wakes up, like, 20 minutes earlier just to… make you coffee.

Taylor: I know, I know. It’s so sweet.

Steffy: You’re meant to be together. And I’m not just saying that because I’m your daughter.

Taylor: The daughter who would love nothing more than to plan another wedding for her parents.

Steffy: Everyone can see how connected you guys are.

Taylor: Well, sure sweetheart, but–

Steffy: I mean it.It’s true.

[ Sighing heavily ]

Taylor: You know, I– I don’t doubt ridge’s feelings for me. I don’t, but– facts are, that he– he is still married to brooke. There’s no divorce papers. And right now, he’s over there telling her that sheila tricked her into drinking. His heart must go out to her. I– I know mine is. She was also a victim of sheila’S. What this means for her and your father, or your father and me… only ridge can answer that.

Brooke: I appreciate you coming here, to give me the news about sheila.

Ridge: Well you had to know.

Brooke: You have so much on your plate, ridge. This tragedy affects the whole family. Especially steffy, and that sweet little boy.

Ridge: Who does that? What kind of a person does that? And not just to finn, poor finn and steffy, but– to you. To us.

Brooke: Sheila made it crystal clear that she wanted you to be with taylor.

Ridge: And I should have suspected that there was somebody behind all this.

Brooke: Ridge, don’t blame yourself. I mean, there’s no way you could have predicted she would have done something like that. But now we know. We have answers.

Ridge: What, what, but what? I know you better than that. I’ve known you all my life. How do you– I should have known better. I should have listened to you, but I didn’T. I should have known that somebody was victimizing you. I didn’t know it was sheila, but I knew it was somebody. And I wasn’t there for you. Your husband wasn’t there for you.

Brooke: You just didn’t know. I mean, I– I know we can’t forget everything that sheila’s done. But we can at least stop her lies and her manipulations. We can restore our life together. I always had faith that we could. That we’d be able to get past this. So is that why you’re here? You’re coming home to me?

Sheila: I’m not going to prison because of an accident.

Steffy: Accident? What accident? You pointed the gun at me, and you shot me.

Sheila: I’m talking about what happened to finn, steffy. What jury is ever going to convict a grieving mother–

Ridge: What jury? Any jury! You killed your own son. You tried to kill my daughter!

Taylor: You came to the hospital, faking concern for steffy. Making all of us think that you needed consoling. That we should feel sorry for you. For your loss. Sheila, no one’s ever going to feel sorry for you again. You don’t deserve any sympathy for what you’ve done.

Ridge: The only thing you deserve is to be in jail.

Steffy: And that’s exactly what you’re going to get.

Brooke: Wishful thinking, I’d say.

Hope: What’s that?

Brooke: Oh, your father. Claiming that sheila might be able to talk her way into a place in steffy’s family.

Hope: Well, he did say that taylor was the one who called and invited her over, so he might actually know what he’s talking about.

Brooke: I wouldn’t put it past taylor to overlook all the things that sheila’s done through the years. But ridge? There’s no way he will ever accept sheila.

Brooke: I just feel for ridge right now. He’s dealing with a lot. And I wish I could be there for him. I wish we weren’t apart.

Hope: Well, see, that’s what we need to fix. The being apart part. Because we both know the two of you shouldn’t be.

Brooke: Yeah. I just feel so bad. The way I betrayed his trust. And you’re right. We shouldn’t be apart. We need to be together. If only I hadn’t–

[ Sighing ] I need to figure out what possessed me to drink that night. I know–

Hope: Mom, does there really need to be an explanation? Or, I mean, is it about the drinking, or– or is it about what the drinking lead to?

Sheila: You know how cruel you’re being right now.

Taylor: Cruel? Confronting you with the truth is–

Sheila: No, no– you brought me here with lies. You made me believe that I was going to get to see my grandson. All I wanted to do was put that terrible night behind me. And find a way to move on. I’m burdened with so much guilt. Guilt that I am carrying because you, steffy.

Steffy: You’re the one who pulled out a gun.

Sheila: Oh. Poor, precious steffy. Did I come after you that night? Did I get in your face and tell you who you could have in your life? No. And when I tried de-escalating the situation by leaving, what did you do? You came after me! Berating me! You are just as guilty.

Ridge: Shut up! I can’t listen to that voice anymore! What is wrong with you? You should be in an institution somewhere! You like to hurt people, don’t you? You’re sick.

Taylor: Ridge. Ridge, she is not worth it.

Ridge: Sick! I just want her to pay.

Steffy: She will. And I hope it’s excruciating. Every second you spend behind bars, rotting for the rest of your miserable life. Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Brooke: I’m not trying to find excuses, honey. I’m not. What I did with deacon was wrong. And obviously it never would have happened if I was sober. So, if I could just figure out… what triggered me that night, then maybe I could start forgiving myself for what happened after.

Hope: Yes, but mom, I mean. Oh, I don’t know how many times I have to keep reminding you, but you were inebriated and yes, you two kissed. But I mean, dad helped you up the stairs. He put you to bed and looked after you, because he was worried. I– nothing more happened.

Brooke: Honey, it doesn’t make me regret it any less. It doesn’t make me regret defending deacon. I– there has to be an answer. There has to be.

Sheila: I want you to think about something, steffy. And I know that’s gonna be very difficult for you, because all you always do is think about yourself. But I want you to try, okay? What would finn do if he were standing here right now?

Steffy: Finn’s not standing here. He’s never coming back.

Sheila: He would tell you to have compassion, and understanding that I made a terrible mistake.

Steffy: A mistake that you killed your own son instead of me? There is no compassion heading your way. Now, if you want to keep telling yourself finn would have shown you kindness, had he lived? Go for it. Knock yourself out. But deep down, you know that’s a lie.

Sheila: Taylor, would you just please say something to her?

Taylor: Don’t look at me like I’m your friend. I– I am not going to take your side on this, or anything else ever again.

Ridge: Hey sheila, do you know what brings me great joy? It’s the fact that you’re gonna die in prison. And not because of us, but because of you. Choices you made, decisions you made. Do you have an idea how much pain you’ve cause my family? My children, when you took their mother away? And now you had to do it again. Leave steffy with her little boy. I hate you. I hate everything about you.

[ Steffy sobbing ] I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Steffy: This is why I wanted you to stay away from my family. I was adamant you stayed away from my son. Because I saw through your lies. Finn didn’T. And now he’s gone. I couldn’t protect my husband, but I will protect my son. You’ve already caused him so much damage taking finn away. Your grandson will grow up without a father. God–

Sheila: You have no idea how sorry I am about that. But I’m not going to prison. I promise you that. What have you done? No. No!

Baker: We’ve got more than enough. You can take that wire off now.

Sheila: What is this?

Baker: I’ve been in the back room, listening to everything. You’re going back to prison, sheila.

Sheila: No!

Baker: For a very long time.

Sheila: No!

Baker: You’re under arrest. For the attempted murder of steffy forrester. And for the murder of your own son, dr. John finnegan.

[ Sheila grunting ] Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Hope: Please, stop beating yourself up, mom. Seriously, you have– you’ve apologized enough for what happened. And obsessing over it isn’t going to do you any good.

Brooke: I know, hope. But don’t you understand? I mean, if there is an answer, if there’s some kind of explanation.

Hope: Then maybe you would feel better that it won’t happen again. No, I do get it. I understand.

Brooke: And, I would feel better if ridge could trust me again. After everything with deacon.

Hope: Ridge knows that you would have never turned to my dad, if it wasn’t for the alcohol. Or at least, he should know that.

[ Sighing ]

Brooke: I hope so. I don’t want any other man, but ridge.

Ridge: Get her outta here.

Baker: You have the right to remain silent.

Sheila: No, wait.

Baker: Anything you say–

Sheila: Wait, I’ve got something to say.

Baker: Can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Sheila: I just wanna say my piece.

Steffy: You’re never going to get your piece. But say what you need to say before they haul you away.

Baker: Go ahead.

Sheila: You’re all so certain. That I intended harm. For you, when I cam back, but that’s– I just wanted to meet my son. I wanted to maybe, just maybe, be part of his life, that’s all that this was. All it ever was. But steffy, you– you just refused to let that happen. You kept saying that I had no place here. You wouldn’t even let finn speak for himself. No, you just wouldn’t– wouldn’t stop. You were so relentless.

Taylor: And look what happened.

Sheila: None of you will ever understand, what it’s like to have somebody love you. And you love them back unconditionally. But you’ve never had to… even think about that. Something that you take for granted. But I don’T. I was hoping that just maybe, this– this time was going to be my chance. My chance was going to be finn. And now he’s gone. And I never– I would never hurt him. I love him.

Steffy: Sheila, whatever toxic version of love you provide, isn’t something finn would have ever wanted. You’re just an ugly reminder of where he came from. Something he tried his damnedest to forget. And exactly what I’m faced with now. Forgetting you. The damage that you caused. You destroyed my family. But you didn’t destroy me. I’m going to come back stronger than ever, and I’m going to raise my son to be exactly like finn. Strong and compassionate. I’m going to raise him to be the opposite of you. He’s not even going to know the name sheila carter. He’s not even going to know you exist. You’re going to be completely erased. Because people like you, you’re not loved. You’re forgotten. Goodbye, sheila. Take her away.

Sheila: You think– you think that this is over. You think that– that I’m not coming back? I’m coming back for hayes. Hayes is going to love me regardless. He’s going to love me. You’re making a mistake. You’re all making a mistake. You haven’t seen the last of me. I will be back! I was on an antidepressant,

Taylor: Don’t worry about what sheila said. There’s no way she’s coming back.

Steffy: I know, it’s just– I don’t like the way she talked about hayes. Wanting his love.

Ridge: I wouldn’t worry about any of that. It’s not going to happen. She’s not going to get out of jail, after what she’s done. As awful as it is, it’s–

[ Sighing softly ] It’s nice to have my memory back. I have the answers.

Taylor: Yeah. We have a lot of answers now. We know what happened to brooke.

Ridge: It’s been haunting her. She wanted to know why she started drinking again.

Taylor: You should go tell her. Tell her what happened.

Ridge: I’m not leaving you guys. Not after today.

Taylor: She needs to know.

Steffy: She does.

Taylor: Get out of here.

Brooke: I’m not giving up on him, hope. I’m not.

Hope: Uh, nor should you, not after everything the two of you have been through.

Brooke: I know, I’ve lost faith before. And I’ve questioned whether ridge and I should be together. Thinking maybe he’s better off with taylor. But I know that’s not true. Ridge and I will find a way through this. We have to.

Steffy: I knew sheila was deranged, but– my god. She shot me. She killed her own son because I was confronting her about brooke. It’s just so crazy to me. Like she knew she was in the wrong.

Taylor: Oh honey, I don’t think she did. I think in her– in her own twisted way, she thought that brooke deserved it.

Steffy: It worries me. If this could change things for you and dad.

[ Loud knock ]

Brooke: Ridge.

Ridge: Hi.

Brooke: Hi. I didn’t realize you were stopping by. Is everything okay? What’s wrong?

Ridge: I– wrong–

[ Stammering ] You have no idea.

Brooke: Oh! You’re scaring me. Tell me what it is.

Ridge: I don’t know where to start.

Brooke: Is it steffy? Is she okay?

Ridge: No, steffy’s fine. Everything’s fine. She’s um– do you know how– how she had holes in her memory?

Brooke: She was blocking out the trauma of the shooting?

Ridge: Yeah. Well, she remembers now.

Brooke: Well, that’s good. I mean, maybe not for her. Maybe it was difficult, but she can now help the police. And maybe they can find out who finn’s shooter is.

Ridge: Oh, they found out.

Brooke: Who?

Ridge: They found out who she was.

Brooke: She?

Ridge: She. Yes.

[ Heavy sigh ]

Ridge: Sheila.

Brooke: Sheila? Sheila shot steffy? And she killed her own son? And then she took their stuff and made it look like a robbery.

Brooke: Oh, my god.

Ridge: She’s disgusting.

Brooke: I can’t believe this. Well, the police have her, right?

Ridge: Now that she’s in custody, she’s confessed everything. She’s going to spend the rest of her days behind bars.

Brooke: Well, do you think that’s even possible? I mean, she’s gone for good?

Ridge: She’s not going to hurt steffy, or taylor, or you, ever again.

Brooke: But I’m the lucky one. She hasn’t done anything to me for years. Except idle threats–

Ridge: That’s not true. Hasn’t been years. Steffy remembered something else. She remembered why she went to the restaurant. She went there to confront sheila.

Brooke: Confront her about?

Ridge: About new year’s eve. You said there was a trigger. And there was. Sheila.

Brooke: I don’t understand.

Ridge: She switched the labels on the champagne bottles. You thought you were drinking non-alcoholic champagne. And she made sure it was the real thing.

Brooke: I knew it. I knew it. I knew there was a reason. I wasn’t drinking on my own!

Ridge: No. It was sheila. She did that to you. I’m so sorry.

Brooke: Oh!

Ridge: Just when I think you can’t sink any lower.

Taylor: You’re blaming steffy for finn’s death? You killed him! You just admitted it.

Sheila: It was an accident. I would never purposely hurt my son. He just… he jumped in front of a bullet.

Steffy: A bullet meant for me.

Sheila: That’s because you wouldn’t let me take my rightful place in finn’s life as his mother, and hayes’ grandmother. I may have pulled the trigger that horrible night, but finn’s blood is on your hands, steffy. So why don’t you come down off of that high horse of yours? He’d still be alive today, if it weren’t for you.

Brooke: So sheila has basically lost her mind, that is what you’re telling me.

Deacon: That is not at all what I said.

Hope: It kind of, sort of, is.

Brooke: If she thinks she’s gonna be welcomed into steffy and taylor’s family–

Hope: I doubt that’s what’s actually happening.

Deacon: Look, I get that this sounds far-fetched, but remember, I mean it was taylor that reached out and called sheila, invited her over to steffy’S. Taylor is the peacemaker in the family. Who knows? Maybe today marks the start of a whole new beginning for sheila.

Hope: Uhh, I know you, dad. And I feel like there’s something more to this story. Like you’re holding something back.

Deacon: All right look, I completely get why you would be skeptical about taylor summoning sheila for something good. But, the fact of the matter is, that the two of them did form a bond.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: What? Well, that is– that’s ridiculous.

Deacon: No, it’s true. They– they shared a life altering experience.

Hope: Uh, what? Like what?

Deacon: Like sheila… saving taylor’s life.

Taylor: How dare you blame steffy for the mayhem you caused? Steffy didn’t kill finn. That was you.

Ridge: You put a bullet into your own kid. Took him away from his wife and his son.

Sheila: I lost finn too.

Taylor: I felt so bad for you. Despite everything, despite our past. My family’s warnings, I– I gave you a chance.

Sheila: You know what that meant to me.

Taylor: I gave you an opportunity, sheila. I gave you an opportunity to prove that you were capable of– of change. Of love. Of– of having a place in this family.

Sheila: And I am. Just look at what happened. I saved your life. And you were grateful to me.

Taylor: But the whole time, you knew! You knew, sheila! That my daughter was unconscious and fighting for her life, because you shot her. You never changed. You’re still the same heartless bitch you’ve always been. Want your clothes to smell freshly

Hope: Sheila goes up to the hospital roof, fully intending to jump, and… ends up saving taylor’s life?

Deacon: I know.

Brooke: Must’ve been terrifying for taylor. To find herself dangling off the side of a building. Her life in sheila’s hands.

Deacon: Sheila rose to the occasion.

Brooke: I feel it’s hard to believe that she actually saved a life. The more likely scenario would be, she would take one.

Ridge: And here I thought i knew what you were capable of. Shooting my mother. Shooting taylor. Who knows who else, but… to shoot your own son in cold blood?

Sheila: Don’t say that, because it wasn’t like that.

Ridge: How was it not like that? You took your gun you shot him, he’s dead.

Sheila: I didn’t mean–

Ridge: Oh you didn’t me– I’m sorry. You didn’t mean to? That’s how you justify it? You were trying to kill somebody else? What the hell is wrong with you?

Sheila: None of this would have happened if only steffy would have given me a chance to prove myself.

Steffy: I did. In the alley. And you showed me exactly who you are. You’re a psycho.

Sheila: No. That night is– it’s hazy for me and it all happened so fast. And suddenly finn showed up, where he shouldn’t have been. I pulled that trigger and it was… too late. I– I couldn’t think.

Ridge: You couldn’t think? Well, you could think a little bit, right? You took their money. You– you took their rings. You made it look like a robbery. You thought a little about it.

Steffy: And the cops bought it.

Sheila: You act like it planned this out. But I didn’T. I just reacted. I’m not proud of what I– but–but in the moment it–

Ridge: What moment? Which moment? The moment you killed your son, or the moment you– you shot my daughter? And you left her to die in the street, to go about your life?

Taylor: And then showing up at the hospital with your fake grief and–

Sheila: No, it wasn’t fake. You– you, of all people. You– you know how terrible I felt.

Taylor: You felt terrible, because you murdered your own son. You lied to everyone. And you played me for a fool.

Sheila: No. No, I didn’T.

Taylor: Oh, poor, poor misunderstood sheila. The bereaved mother. The loving grandmother who just wanted a place in hayes’s life. Knowing that you’re responsible. You are responsible for that little boy being fatherless, for my daughter being on death’s door. My god, sheila. How do you even look at yourself?

Ridge: You are sick.

Sheila: That’s what you think, I’m sick? Because I wanted a place in hayes’ and finn’s life. Because I wanted to see brooke finally lose to taylor. You’d be with the woman that you were always meant to be with.

Taylor: Brooke?

Steffy: What does she have to do with this?

Sheila: Brooke took ridge away from the two of you. I was just trying to right a wrong. You have no idea how far above and beyond I have already gone for you.

Steffy: No one knows what you’re talking about.

Sheila: You do.

Steffy: Me?

Sheila: Yes. Go on. Tell them. About new year’s eve. What I put on the line for taylor and ridge.

Ridge: What are you– what? What are you talking about now? New year’s eve. What is it? Answer me. Family is just very important.

Brooke: Explain something to me, deacon. What, exactly, is your relationship with sheila?

Hope: I– I actually would like to know the answer to that, too.

Deacon: You know, if I didn’t know better, I’d say your mother is jealous.

[ Laughing ]

Brooke: I am serious. Why do you keep defending her when you know what a terrible person she is?

Deacon: I don’t know. People say the same thing about me. I think the two of you would counter that I’m not so bad. Am I flawed? Yes. Have I made terrible mistakes–

Hope: Well not like sheila–

Brooke: Exactly. That’s right.

Deacon: Sheila lost her son in a cruel and unexpected way. Hayes lost his father. Steffy lost her husband. Don’t you guys see that for once, sheila, she’s got something in common with the family. Their grief and mourning over a man that everybody loved. What better tribute to finn than giving his mother a chance to be a part of the family that he left behind?

Brooke: As a mother, I do feel bad for sheila.

Deacon: Maybe you could just extend some of that sympathy. Eh– sometimes it just takes one person reaching out.

Brooke: Well it can’t be me. It can’T. Ah, even if I wanted to. Ridge would never allow sheila into their lives.

Ridge: There’s more? What, killing your son and shooting my daughter not enough for you–

Sheila: Stop saying I killed my son. I loved finn more than anything in this world, and I never meant for that to happen.

Steffy: You looked me in the eye and you pulled the trigger. You left me to die.

Sheila: I didn’t want to hurt you though, steffy. You gave me no choice.

Ridge: No choice, what do you mean, no choice? The gun shot itself? Is that–

Taylor: I can’t believe it was you all along. Our daughter almost died.

Sheila: This wasn’t supposed to have– I was on your side. Can’t you see that? That’s what new year’s eve was about. I did this… for you. Because… I love you. I love you all.

Steffy: You’re insane. My son and your daughter, they created a beautiful life together. And I just wanted to be a part of that. Is that so wrong? I just– I kept getting doors slammed in my face. Brooke, of– of course, but what– what hurt the most… was you, steffy.

Steffy: This chance at

a relationship with finn?

With hayes?

It’s over.

It is never going to happen.

Now that I have proof

that you’re still the

same manipulative sociopath

you have always been.

Sheila: No, you called me… dangerous and– and demented. You said I would never have a place in my son’s life. How was I supposed to react? Even as cruel and heartless as you were to me, I still would have forgiven you. I just wanted a little compassion and understanding. No, you wouldn’t give, not– not even an inch. You chose to defend brooke, over me, the woman that wrecked your family.

Taylor: Why do you keep bringing up brooke?

Sheila: Go on, tell them. Tell them why we were arguing that night.

Steffy: I overheard thomas

talking to you on the phone.

Talking about he

couldn’t take it.

The little secret

he was keeping?

How you switched the labels

on brooke’s bottle.

She thought she was drinking

non-alcoholic champagne.

But you made sure it

was the real stuff.

No wonder she turned to vodka.

She was drunk. Because of you.

[ Gasping ]

Taylor: What is it?

Steffy: This whole time. This whole time, brooke was saying how it doesn’t make sense that she would just start drinking out of nowhere, but it– it does make sense. It makes perfect sense. You sabotaged an alcoholic. You set up brooke to drink on new year’s eve. Be ready for whatever life throws your way.

Brooke: Ridge hates sheila. And how could he not? After everything she’s done to people that he loves?

Deacon: I’m not defending any of that. Look, the forresters have every single reason to despise sheila, and ridge more than anyone.

Brooke: Ridge is not going to let sheila con her way into steffy’s life, by way of hayes.

Deacon: I think maybe I’m the one who’s jealous.

Brooke: Why?

Deacon: Ridge’s a lucky guy. The way you defend him, no matter what, the way you just show him unwavering support, even though he’s staying in the same house as taylor. It’S…

Hope: Ah, not technically.

Deacon: Guesthouse. Still too close for comfort. Whatever.

Brooke: Ridge is staying at steffy’s house because of me. Because of something I did. Betrayed his trust, with you.

Deacon: I know, and I’m sorry.

Brooke: I’m not blaming you. It was my fault. And after all this time, I still don’t know what it was that possessed me to drink.

Ridge: Hang on– hang on a second. How does anyone, especially sheila, make brooke drink? How does that happen?

Steffy: Details are still kind of fuzzy, but something about switching the champagne bottles.

Ridge: Is that what you did? You took her non-alcoholic champagne and exchanged it for the real thing? Is that it?

Sheila: I switched the labels. She didn’t have a clue.

Ridge: So you made an alcoholic drink?

Sheila: I did it for your family.

Steffy: Oh god, you really are delusional.

Sheila: No. You and brooke threatened me. You said that I would never have anything to do with my son or my grandson. You. You, I had to deal with. You’re finn’s wife, hayes’ mother. But brooke? How dare she? Judging me as if she’s never done anything wrong? Well, I found that insulting. And quite frankly, none of her damn business.

Ridge: You made my wife drink? Everything that happened after that’s because of you.

Sheila: No. I wanted to give back to you and taylor what was taken from you. Give back what brooke stole. An opportunity for you to be back together again. I got her to drink. But everything that happened after that with deacon? That was just all brooke. I was trying to help you. That was my motivation. If you don’t believe that, just– just ask thomas.

Ridge: Thomas?

Sheila: He knows what happened new year’s eve.

Taylor: He would never keep what you did to brooke from us.

Sheila: I know that he would. He did, because he saw what i did was bringing his parents back together again. You don’t– you don’t believe me, just– just call him.

Steffy: She’s right.

Taylor: What?

Steffy: I heard thomas on the phone with sheila. He knew what she did to brooke.

Sheila: Thank you.

Taylor: Oh, thomas.

Ridge: I’m gonna deal with thomas later. What– how do you– what kind of– what kind of a person are you? Playing with people’s lives. What is wrong with you? Brooke, ever since that night, she’s been trying to figure out what happened. Why she did what she did. You know what she came up with? “I guess… I guess I’m just a horrible person.” But it’s not her at all, is it? It’s you. It’s always been you. You don’t deserve to live. You don’T. No one can forgive you, ever. What you did to brooke. Steffy. Hayes. Finn. They just need to lock you up. And I promise you… every chance I get, I will make you suffer.

Steffy: You set brooke up. You shot me. You left me to die. You killed your own son. There is a special place in hell for you. And that’s exactly where you’re going. After you spend your miserable life behind bars. You tormented my family for far too long. Your reign of terror is over. It ends today.

Steffy: You thought we invited you here to welcome you into our family? You’re a deranged lunatic!

Sheila:You asked to see me? Taylor, what– what’s going on? Why are you treating me… like this? We’re family.

Steffy: You destroyed this family! You shot me. You killed my husband. You killed your own son! The truth is out, sheila. I remember now. It was you. You’re a murderer. You’re a murderer!

Hope: So, have you heard from ridge at all?

Brooke: No.

Hope: Oh, well, uh, you could always reach out.

Brooke: I know, honey, but, now that steffy’s home, ridge is going to give her all of his time and attention.

Hope: Yeah, I know liam feels the same way. And before you give me that look mom, steffy survived a terrible tragedy, so.

[ Knock at door ]

Deacon: Hey, lulu!

Hope: Dad!

Deacon: Hey, sweetheart. I knocked up at the cabin, I was hoping to find one of you home, and look at this. I got you both here.

[ Laughter ]

Deacon: Mm mm. Look, I know I shouldn’t just waltz in like this, but I didn’t see ridge’s car.

Brooke: He’s not here.

Deacon: Ah.

Hope: So… what brings you by, dad?

Deacon: Is this a bad time?

Hope: No, no. We– we were just, uh, discussing steffy’s progress. She just got released from the hospital, and ridge is helping her get settled in.

Deacon: And you’re hoping once she is, forrester’ll come to his senses and come back to you? Well, I suppose unlikelier things have happened.

Sheila: What– what are you saying? Taylor, you can’t believe this. This– this is crazy. Your mother invited me here so that– that I could see my grandson. She wouldn’t trick me in– taylor, you wouldn’T… te– tell her to stop.

Ridge: No one’s stopping, sheila.

Sheila: I– I don’t know what’s going on here, but I can– I can just leave.

Taylor: No. No. You’re going to stay. You’re going to answer for what you’ve done.

Sheila: I haven’t done anything,

Taylor: Steffy remembers.

Sheila: She’s wrong. You’re wrong. I’m not a murderer. You’re the ones that are acting delusional right now. I– here, you tell me that you sympathize with me, that you feel my grief. And– and now you want me to– oh, god. This is– this is disgusting. This is sick, to think– I loved my son. I gave him away as a baby, so he could have a better life. I would never… deliberately end it. (Christine) when you hear the words oral cancer,

Deacon: I’m the last guy to fault anyone for taking care of their kids.

Brooke: Ridge is 100% focused on steffy right now.

Deacon: I’m sorry, I– I didn’t mean to come off like I was undermining your belief in ridge. Your faith in liam.

Brooke: Okay. Well, let’s just… change the subject.

Deacon: Subject changed. Look, I just love you both. And I– I want what’s best for you.

Hope: Dad, we know that.

Deacon: Okay, I hope so. Now, I didn’t come over here to upset anybody. I came over because… I’ve got some mind-blowing news.

Sheila: You think I killed him? You’re wrong. You’re so–

Ridge: So you’re calling steffy a liar?

Sheila: I’m saying she doesn’t know what she’s saying.

Steffy: I remember sheila. I was there. You had a gun. You shot finn and me.

Sheila: What am i doing here? Why would I have rushed to the hospital, steffy? Why would I speak to the police? Why would I do that?

Steffy: You’re a lunatic. Who knows why you do anything?

Sheila: You’re so sure that I’ve done this hideous thing? And you can’t even say why?

Steffy: I saw you, sheila. You had the gun. You were in the alley.

Sheila: Yeah. And when you were in the hospital, you also thought that liam was your husband. You were positive of that. You had no memory of finn and hayes. None whatsoever. No, you believed you were married to liam.

Ridge: She knows what she saw.

Sheila: Her memories are not infallible. And you know that. Her mind has blocked out the pain and trauma of being shot. And now she’s just trying to put the pieces all back together again. And of course, it– it would be me! Why not, right? The woman that shot her mother. That took her away from her family all those years ago. No, you… you’re looking for someone to blame for losing finn.

Steffy: I was there! I remember!

Sheila: You don’T.

Steffy: I know what I’m saying. I know what I saw.

Sheila: You’ve always considered me to be a threat to your family. That’s why you put me into that alley. But it never happened. It isn’t real.

Steffy: I’m not making this up.

Ridge: Don’t listen to her, she’s trying to confuse you.

Sheila: You’re– you’re making these horrible accusations. When all I wanted to be was a part of my son’s life. Of his family’S. And I would have done anything to make that happen. And now, my son is gone. And that is tearing me apart. I never have experienced this kind of pain. It’s– it’s like hell on earth. And that kind of grief, and that kind of despair. You know… I wanted to take my own life. Taylor, you know that. You know, I’m not a violent person anymore. Steffy’S… mind is tainted by– by fear and anger, and that’s wrong. You know it. Please. You’ve gotta believe me. If you have advanced non-small cell lung cancer,

Hope: What’s going on, dad?

Deacon: Alright, before I say anything, I just want to make sure that we’re okay.

Brooke: We are.

Deacon: Okay. I’m sorry. Cause I– I didn’t mean to bad mouth liam or ridge. Alright, maybe ridge, just a little bit. But I– listen, I want to be supportive. I’m not trying to bring anyone down.

Hope: You didn’T.

Deacon: Alright, good. Because I think you two, are two of the most fantastic women in the world. And it just burns me up that you’re not getting treated the way you should be. You know, I know how much I want to be around you. And I– just think that liam and ridge would want to be around you, too.

Hope: Okay, dad, we get it.

Deacon: Okay, mm hm.

Hope: You said you came here with news. So, what’s that about?

Deacon: Yes, it’s about the shooting.

Brooke: Oh.

Deacon: It’s crazy how a tragedy like this can affect people and affect their relationships with other people.

Hope: Okay, no, maybe let’s not.

Deacon: No, no, no– I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about sheila.

Sheila: Taylor, you know I’m not the person I used to be. Saved your life.

Steffy: What is she saying?

Taylor: She was gonna jump off the roof of the hospital. When I tried to save her, I slipped and I fell, and… sheila grabbed me, and saved me.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Taylor: That’s fine.

Ridge: So I’m sorry. What are you looking for? A loyalty cookie? What do you need?

Sheila: Maybe a little compassion.

Ridge: You’re not getting anything from this family. You’ve taken enough from us already.

Sheila: Just listen to what you’re saying! This is beyond cruel and it’s– it’s wrong.

Steffy: It’s true.

Ridge: You’re a killer! You’re a twisted, sick, evil killer. You killed your own boy!

Sheila: No! I’ve done things in my past. I’ve lost control. I’ve panicked. Done things that I’ll regret forever. But I am not evil.

Steffy: Yes, you are.

Sheila: I’m so sorry. I am so sorry for what has happened to your family. It haunts me. I think about what happened that night and what that means for hayes.

Steffy: Oh, don’t you dare say his name.

Sheila: You are obviously out of your mind with grief–

Taylor: Sheila, that’s enough. I opened up to you. I– I let you spend time with my family. I insisted that steffy invite you into this home.

Sheila: And I’m so grateful.

Taylor: I defended you to my children and to ridge. I– I told them to– to try to understand the pain that you’re going through.

Sheila: It’s because you know, I’m a different person now. I– I’m not denying what I’ve done in my past. I own my choices. I know that I– I have committed horrible crimes. But that doesn’t define me. That– I served my time. I was trying to make amends. And finn saw how hard I was trying. I thought that– I thought that you saw that, too. That– that you did. I lost my son that night too. That one senseless act of violence. And I’m never going to have a chance to truly redeem myself again. I mean, just– just look. Look at you all. Look at what’s happening. The way that– that you’re all turning on me. Taylor, please. It didn’t happen the way steffy said. Say something to them right now. You– you– ridge and steffy. They’ll believe you. They’ll listen to you.

Taylor: You want me to make my daughter doubt her own memory? To question the most horrifying thing she’s ever experienced?

Sheila: I just want you to make her see.

Taylor: You think that I would trust you over my own child? Sheila, you’re good. You’re good. But you are– you are not that good. I don’t believe you, sheila. I don’t believe you at all. I believe my daughter. She buried that horrific memory because it was too painful for her, but– but she remembers now. And she saw finn’s killer. And she’s certain it was you.

Sheila: I’m not that person.

Steffy: Gah, sheila, stop lying. You were there. You were in the alley. We were arguing. I swore I’d keep you away from finn and hayes. And then you took out a gun. You were going to kill me. And then finn showed up, and he jumped in front of the bullet. He died in my arms. And when I went to call 911, you– you turned the gun on me. You shot me. It was you, sheila. Finn’s blood is on your hands.

It’s the most wonderful

time of the year.

Brooke: You have news about sheila?

Deacon: You are not going to believe it.

Hope: Well, I thought you were trying to keep your distance from sheila.

Deacon: Yeah, but ever since finn died… she’s been completely alone. Completely isolated. I mean, she lost her son. Nobody would tell her what happened. She never got a chance to say goodbye. This has been awful for her.

Brooke: I did see her at the hospital a few times. She was devastated. As much as I despise sheila and everything she’s ever done, as a mom, I do feel sorry for her.

Deacon: You would not be the only one.

Hope: What do you mean?

Deacon: So taylor called sheila and invited her over to steffy’S. I– I didn’t think this was ever going to happen, but sheila thinks this could be it. She thinks that this might actually be her chance to be welcomed into her grandson’s life.

[ Brooke scoffing ]

Sheila: I’m not your enemy. I’m suffering, too.

Taylor: We know the truth, steffy remembers.

Sheila: Her– her memory… is hazy. She hates me. She wants me to be punished.

Ridge: Punished? What do you– do you know about punishment? You don’t get punished. If you were punished, you’d still be in prison. You wouldn’t have made it back here. You wouldn’t have met finn. You wouldn’t have shot my daughter and that poor, innocent boy. But you did. You took his life. And with that, destroyed your own. You know what? I’m going to– I’m going to spend every second of my day to make sure that you spend the rest of your life behind bars like that nasty, filthy animal that you are.

Sheila: Yes, I did it! I shot finn. But it was an accident, and it haunts me every minute of every day.

Steffy: Oh, I– I hope you die behind bars.

Sheila: He wasn’t supposed to be there. I loved finn. I would never hurt him. He was my own flesh… and blood. He was my last opportunity to finally have a loving relationship with one of my children. But you just… you couldn’t let that happen, could you? No, you were on me from the minute I came back to L.A. Threatening me, over and over again. Telling me how you were going to come between my son and me. And I’d never get to see my grandson.

Steffy: Hayes is gonna hate you for the rest of his life.

Sheila: You’re the one that took his daddy away from him. You. This never would have happened, if you would have shown me any kind of compassion, understanding, kindness. But no, steffy, you were too selfish for that! Too cruel! You– you want to blame this on me? But you know what really happened. I didn’t chase after you. You… came after me. Finn would still be here if it weren’t for you! You’d still have your husband. And hayes would still have his daddy. But no. No, you– you had to come after me. You had to attack me. I defended my relationship with my son! This is on you! Finn’s blood is on your hands, steffy. Yours!

Steffy: No, no it’s not. No, it’s not!

[ Steffy growling ]

Steffy: We should’ve known. We should have known it was sheila all along!

Taylor: Honey, if we’re– if we’re– if we’re doing this, I– I have to ask, you– you suffered memory loss. Are– are you… are you 100% sure?

Steffy: Yes, I’m positive, mom. Sheila shot me, and she killed her own son.

Sheila: Did that really just happen?

[ Deacon chuckles ]

Deacon: Yeah. Apparently.

Sheila: Taylor called me… and invited me to steffy’s beach house. I’m– I’m not imagining that?

Deacon: It appears your luck is changing, kiddo.

Sheila: It– it’s almost too good to be true. After all this time, me, sheila carter, finally having an opportunity to be a part of her little grandson’s life, his family. I– I never thought I’d see this day.

Quinn: I knew it!

I knew I’d catch you.

Eric: You knew you’d catch me?

Quinn: Yeah.

You’re at the beach club,


Eric: Yes. How’d you know?

Quinn: Well, you’re not

wearing a shirt, so I assumed

you were playing pickleball.

Eric: Yeah, I’m just about to take a shower. I’ve had, uh– I’ve had quite a workout.

Quinn: Well, that’s good.

Exercise is important.

Eric: Good for a man my age, yes, of course it is.

Quinn: No, for anyone. I’m just sorry I’m not there. I’m missing out on all the fun.

Eric: Is there something

I can do for you, quinn?

Quinn: No, I was just thinking about you and how lucky I am to be your wife. Uh, anyway, go shower and I’ll see you when you get back to the office.

Eric: I’ll be along shortly.

[ Laughing ]

[ Sighs ]

Carter: So you got a chance to speak to eric?

Quinn: Yeah. He’s at the beach club. But I got to say “hi,” and see his handsome face. Oh, that’s silly, right?

Carter: No, no, it’s sweet. It’s romantic. You know what? You should join eric there. Surprise him.

Sheila: I– I really should be going. I– I don’t want to keep taylor waiting.

Deacon: I hope you get everything you want.

Sheila: You really mean that, don’t you?

Deacon: ‘Course I do. Sheila, you’ve been through hell losing your son. You deserve to catch a break.

Sheila: But it’s– it’s– it’s– it’s so much more than that, deacon. To know that I’m going to be a part of my little grandson’s life, his– his family. I just wish that finn were here to share it with us. I’m always going to be haunted by that night.

Deacon: Look, you know you can’t change the past. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Come on! You’re not gonna be shut out of your grandson’s life anymore. This is what matters.

Sheila: Yeah, absolutely. Nothing else matters but hayes.

Steffy: I– I can hear the gunshot in my head. The bullet that killed finn. I can– I can see sheila with the gun.

Taylor: Honey. Honey, try not to go there, okay?

Steffy: How could I not?

Ridge: And you still think this is wise, confronting sheila?

Taylor: Your father’s right. This could get ugly real quick.

Steffy: It already is ugly. I want to look sheila in the eye and confront her for shooting me and killing finn. With golo, I’ve lost 13 inches in my waist.

Donna: You sure you have to leave?

Eric: Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Thanks. The uh, absence of ridge and steffy in the ceo office has left a big hole there. Carter’s been a real champ stepping up but, uh, ultimately–

Donna: Ultimately everything falls on your shoulders.

[ Laughs ]

Eric: Yes, it does.

Donna: I know, I know.

[ Both sigh ] How does this feel?

Eric: It feels like I never want you to stop.

[ Chuckles ]

Donna: Well, well, I’m very good with my hands.

Eric: Yeah, you’re very good at everything.

Donna: Yeah?

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: I’m glad you think so.

Eric: I do. I want you to know how much I appreciate you. Us together, you and me. You’re such a breath of fresh air for me.

Donna: I don’t know, eric. I’m so worried. I mean, ah, that near-miss earlier. It’s just, ah– it’s a reminder that we’re playing with fire. Especially with somebody like quinn, I mean, if anyone knows firsthand how volatile she is, it’s me.

Eric: We’ll be careful. No one’s going to get hurt. I have to go.

Donna: Until next time… my honey bear.

Carter: Eric’s been spending a lot of time at the beach club lately, huh?

Quinn: Yeah, and I’m proud of him, too. You know, he’s been really committed to his, his health, keeping his heart rate up, exercising. Which is why I came up with something to make sure that he stays committed. Come here. Look. It’s one of those health rings, you know? But I designed the surround. This way I can keep track of his heart rate, and his overall health. You know? I mean, the last thing I want is to lose that wonderful husband of mine.

Taylor: Okay. Sheila will be here any second.

Ridge: Everything is set.

Taylor: Okay and sweetheart, you are 100% sure that sheila–

Steffy: Mom, there’s absolutely no mistaking what I remember.

[ Knocking ]

[ Exhales ] Okay. Okay.

[ Ridge clearing throat ]

Taylor: Oh, sheila. Hi.

Sheila: Hi.

Taylor: Come on in.

Sheila: Thank you.

Taylor: Come in.

Sheila: Ridge. And steffy, I– I just assumed that it was just going to be taylor and me.

Steffy: We were all waiting for you, actually. Thanks for coming.

[ Heartbeat thudding ] Looking to get back in your type 2 diabetes zone?

Carter: I’ve seen rings like this before but none with this much style. Works just like any other the health ring, right?

Quinn: As– as far as collecting, uh, data, tracking eric’s body. Absolutely. I mean, this thing is monitoring his heart rate while he’s sleeping, while he’s doing physical activity– I mean, come on. It’s a great way for me to keep tabs on my husband, especially with the amount of time he’s spending at the beach club these days.

Carter: Right. Pickleball.

[ Laughter ]

Quinn: Pickleball.

Carter: Gotta say, quinn, I’m impressed, the way you’re looking out for eric’s health. And he will be, too.

Quinn: Oh, well, he would be if he knew I was doing it. But he’s not going to know. I won’t tell him.

Carter: No?

Quinn: No. He’s going to think that I’m worried about him. And I know he doesn’t want me to be.

Carter: Well, then it’s your well-intentioned secret.

Quinn: Well, actually, it’s our well-intentioned secret, because now you know.

Eric: Quinn. There you are.

Quinn: Hey, sweetheart, you’re back.

Eric: Yeah. And carter. How are you?

Carter: I’m well, and I’m late for a meeting. See you two later.

Quinn: ‘Kay. Hey! I missed you. I hope you missed me, too.

Sheila: You’re thanking me for coming.

Taylor: Uh, it’s not just steffy. We’re all glad you’re here.

Sheila: Really? And even you, ridge, because you’re usually anything but glad to see me.

Ridge: That’s true.

Sheila: So what’s so different about today?

Taylor: I think I can answer that. We have all experienced a profound loss with finn. You know, steffy’s husband, hayes’ father, your son. You know, even though ridge and steffy and I all share a very painful and disturbing past with you… ever since you’ve been back in L.A., You’ve– you’ve really made an effort–

Sheila: Yeah, but you know what? That is something that your daughter and ridge refuse to believe.

Taylor: I believed you. And– and whether or not you were reformed or not, the fact still remains that you are… hayes’ biological grandmother, just like I am. You know, it’s just– it’s– it’s been too much pain over the years.

Ridge: Yeah. As uh, as hard as it is, it’s just time for us to make it come to an end.

Steffy: My parents and I, we’re on agreement with this.

Sheila: I– when I was here earlier today, y– you didn’t want me here–

Steffy: Well, things have changed since then.

Sheila: I have wanted to hear you say that for so long, for– for what seems like forever. To not be looked at like I’m some kind of a monster despite what I’ve– I’ve done. I wish with my whole heart that what happened in the alley that night didn’t happen– I wish it didn’t happen and that finn was here with all of us right now. I know how valuable family was to my son. And now, it’s a family that– that wants to accept me into it? I thank you all. You– you have no idea how much this means to me. Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Quinn: I’m so glad you’ve been going to the club. Seeing friends, exercising, you’ve been really dedicated. But of course, that doesn’t surprise me. It’s exactly who you are. You are committed and devoted. And I have something for you.

Eric: Really?

Quinn: Mm-hm.

Eric: What?

Quinn: It’s a gift. It’s my way of saying, “thank you” for giving us a second chance.

[ Eric chuckles ] I designed it myself. I put a lot of thought into it. May I?

Eric: Of– of– of course.

Quinn: Perfect fit, just the way we’ve been for most of our marriage. I know that I slipped up, but it has just made me appreciate you so much more, eric. Your love? Your loyalty? Your fidelity? This ring, it’s going to give us a long, healthy, happy life together as husband and wife.

[ Liquid pouring ]

Deacon: Here’s to you, sheila. Finally getting what you deserve.

Sheila: Inviting me here. It just– it means– it means the world to me. So thank you. Thank you so very much.

Steffy: You don’t have to keep thanking us–

Sheila: Yeah, but I do. I know how much you’ve suffered, steffy. But now– now– and I don’t mean to make this sound insensitive, but this crushing pain that I’m feeling is something you’re never going to know.

Steffy: Actually, I do. I do know. All too well.

Ridge: My daughter suffered a devastating loss.

Taylor: Everyone who loved finn.

Sheila: No, I ju– I– I– I know, I just meant…

[ Sighing ] I’m– I’m so sorry that finn isn’t here for you and hayes. I wish that nothing had ever happened. But to, uh– to be taking that step towards getting to know my– my grandson, this family, that is like a dream come true for me.

[ Chuckles ]

Steffy: When I first came to in the hospital, I, um, I couldn’t remember. I– I had completely forgotten about finn and hayes. You know, what happened to him was so… uh, it was so painful that I must have um… uh, must have just blocked it out. You know, I kept it… buried. But uh… I remember now. It’s good, of course you do. Finn loved you, and his son very much. And I’d like to think on some level that he loved me, too.

[ Scoffs ]

Steffy: Yeah. I think on, on some level he did care about you despite all the pain you caused me and my family over the years. Somehow he was able to find a place in his heart to accept you as his mother. Just shows what a kind, caring man he was. And then that awful night happened where some sick lunatic shot me, and killed finn. Who could do something like that? What kind of sick animal shoots someone in cold blood?

Sheila: We’re probably never going to find out so… that’s why I think– I think it’s best that we honor his life, not his death.

[ Scoffs ]

Steffy: Honor his life? A life that was taken from him so abruptly? A father, who was taken from a little, innocent boy? From me? His wife. Like I said, I remember now. That’s right, sheila. I remember. I remember everything. I know what you did that night. How can you stand here, and talk about loving and honoring him when it was you? You shot him! You pulled out your gun and you killed him! You killed your own son. And then you shot me, and you left me to die! That’s the truth, sheila! It’s the truth. It was you. You’re a murderer! You’re a murderer!

Steffy: It was her. It was sheila. She shot me, and she killed finn.

Deacon: Something’s off with you, sheila.

Sheila: What?

Deacon: The way you’re acting, saying all these crazy things?

Sheila: I’m– I’m not.

Deacon: You said that finn would still be alive, if it weren’t for steffy. What the hell’s that supposed to mean?

Quinn: What’s with paris and all her questions?

Carter: She wanted to know if I was still hung up on you or not.

Quinn: And? Um, you made it clear that there’s nothing going on between us, right?

Carter: Yes, that’s what I told her.

Quinn: Good, because I don’t need her walking around here, stirring up a bunch of trouble.

Carter: She seemed to pick up on a vibe. I don’t think I’m as good at hiding my feelings as I thought.

[ Donna giggling ]

Donna: What are you thinking about? Hm?

Eric: I’m just, uh… just enjoying the quiet.

Donna: Ah. I know, it’s nice, isn’t it?

Eric: Mm hm.

Donna: There’s no drama. No one here to bother us. Hm?

Eric: Oh, yeah.

[ Donna tsk-ing ]

Donna: But I think I know you too well, eric. You’re thinking about quinn, aren’t you?

Carter: Look, I realize nothing can happen between us.

Quinn: No, no. We’ve been down that road before. I almost lost my husband, and my marriage!

Carter: And I almost lost my friendship with eric and ridge, not to mention my position at forrester.

Quinn: Right, exactly. We– there is too much at stake for us to lose– eh. Carter, it’s not like I’m not always going to care about you, or even be attracted to every single thing about you, but, I love my husband. We’re committed to each other. And nothing is ever going to change that.

Eric: You got me. You’re right. I was thinking about quinn.

Donna: Mm hm.

Eric: I’m sorry.

Donna: Oh. No, no, no need to apologize to me. I– I was just thinking about brad pitt, actually. Yeah. Yeah. So I guess that makes us about even so, you know…

Eric: Brad pitt.

Donna: Mm hm.

Eric: Well, I’ll admit that he’s– he’s a pretty handsome fellow, I guess.

Donna: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Oh, I mean, he’s always been my fantasy hall pass.

Eric: Ahuh.

Donna: And I guess, I’m yours. But we’ll keep it our little secret. Okay?

Eric: Okay. I can’t help feeling a little guilty, where quinn is concerned. But, I appreciate you so much. You always manage to bring a smile to my face.

Deacon: How could steffy be responsible? It– that doesn’t even make sense.

Sheila: She’s always causing trouble, deacon. She doesn’t know when to keep her mouth shut.

Deacon: So you think it’s her fault that– that finn was murdered?

Sheila: I think if she’d handled things differently, finn would still be here.

Deacon: How could you even know that?

Sheila: I just do.

[ Scoffing ]

Deacon: You know, sheila, uh the way– the way you’re talking, it’s almost as if you were there that night.

Steffy: It was sheila. It was sheila!

Taylor: Okay, okay, so– so sheila killed her own son, and then she shot you?

Steffy: Mom! Mom, mom, mom, I’m telling you the truth. I am telling you the truth. I– I know I couldn’t remember things for a while, but it is so– it is so, so clear to me now. The shooter, the person that we’ve been looking for, has been, she’s been here the entire time.

Ridge: It’s her? There’s no doubt in your mind?

Steffy: I– I’ve never been more certain about anything in my life. She did it. It was sheila. She pulled the trigger and– and finn saved my life. He jumped in front of the bullet. And she took him away from us. I am going to make her pay for what she’s done! What’s the #1 retinol brand

Carter: You know you’ve grown a lot, quinn. I admire the work you put into bettering yourself and your relationship.

Quinn: I think eric deserves a lot of that credit, you know, for not giving up on us. On me? I’m not saying things are the way they used to be between us, because they certainly aren’T.

Carter: It may take some time.

Quinn: I just have to own what I did. You know, I broke eric’s trust. Something he would never do to me.

Donna: The last thing I ever want to do is complicate your life.

Eric: Well, my emotions are pretty complicated these days, and that’s one of the things that I appreciate so much about you is how uncomplicated you are. Being here with you, doing this, is effortless.

[ Donna chuckling ]

Donna: Well, that’s what I want to be for you. I want to make your life easy and… happy.

Eric: And that’s what this is. That’s what you do for me. You make me so happy.

Deacon: I get that you’ve suffered a huge loss, but so has steffy. The cops, they think this was some kind of robbery gone bad. If they were getting jumped, how could steffy have stopped it?

Sheila: Because she never… listens. She only considers herself. She never was worried about finn or anyone else. She was only thinking about herself.

Deacon: What, you think she mouthed off to the shooter?

Sheila: Oh, she mouthed off, I’m sure of it.

Deacon: I never really thought about that. You know, whether or not they complied with the shooter’s demands, did what he said. Does it– does it really matter now?

Sheila: I’m sure the person that was holding that gun– that it was never their plan to shoot two people.

Deacon: Sheila, you have to realize that there’s the possibility we might never know what happened. The cops, they don’t seem to have any leads. It’s weird, though, the way things went down, it– it just didn’t have to end that tragically.

Sheila: No, it didn’T. I should have been there, to protect finn, instead of him getting shot.

Deacon: Don’t beat yourself up over this. You’re not responsible for what happened to finn.

Steffy: Sheila. She murdered her own son.

Ridge: Of course she did.

Taylor: My god.

Ridge: Her own flesh and blood.

Taylor: How could she do this?

[ Taylor sighing ]

Steffy: She looked at me, and then she– she shot me, as her son lay dead in the alley.

Ridge: Because she’s sick, she’s a psychopath.

Taylor: I– I let her into our lives.

Ridge: Don’t do that. You tried to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Steffy: I don’t– I don’t get it. I don’t get it like, she wanted– she wanted a relationship with hayes and finn.

Taylor: I welcomed her into this home. I– I… I believed that she was changing.

Steffy: Mom! Mom, please do not do this. She had finn fooled too.

[ Taylor gasping ]

Taylor: I should have seen it. I should have seen it. How could I not see this? This is– this is why. This is why she was blaming herself. Because– she’s the reason that finn is dead.

Steffy: Finn is the reason I’m alive, mom. He jumped in front of me, just as she was pulling the trigger. He took the bullet. I’m alive because of finn.

And it’s easier than ever to get

your projects done right .

Carter: You’re lucky to be married to eric, but he is really lucky to have you.

Quinn: Sometimes I question that last part.

Carter: What? Quinn, I can list at least 50 reasons why any man would be grateful to have you.

Quinn: Just 50?

Carter: A 100.

[ Quinn tch-ing ] A thousand, millions.

Quinn: Okay, all right, that’s a lot better.

Carter: Look, I want your marriage to succeed, because I know how much you want it to succeed.

Quinn: I really do.

Carter: I know. And I want you to be happy.

Carter: That’s all I want for you.

Carter: No, no. No, no. We’re not talking about me. We’re talking about you, and how you could strengthen your marriage. Is there anything else you can do on your end?

Quinn: I don’t know. I feel like I’ve been trying to do everything, you know? I’m trying to be softer and– and more present, more vulnerable. I’m trying to be the woman that eric fell in love with. Only better.

Carter: And you’re still sensing some distance from him?

[ Quinn sighing ]

Quinn: I know, he’s busy with work and his… newfound love of pickleball. I don’t know. I mean, I know he’s still in the process of– of forgiving me, I just– I can’t wait for us to be close again.

Carter: Then, talk to him. What’s the worst that can happen, right? Reach out to eric. Show him how much you care.

Deacon: Losing your kid is– it’s hard enough. But convincing yourself that you were to blame, that’s next level torture.

Sheila: Yeah, well, it’s the deepest, darkest feeling in the world.

Deacon: Stop it. Finn would not want you punishing yourself.

Sheila: I am not so sure about that.

Deacon: Come on, he would want you to keep living, to keep going on. It’s not like you’re going to forget him.

Sheila: Finn is all I think about. Every day. Every night. And the manner in which he passed, it didn’t have to be this way. If finn hadn’t shown up in that alley, if– if steffy hadn’t given him a reason to worry–

Deacon: If, if– sheila! There are so many things in this world that we don’t control. Your issues with steffy did not cause this.

Sheila: I wish that were the case, but– I’m always going to feel responsible. I think that’s why it’s just best if I– if I leave L.A., I– I don’t come back.

Steffy: Sheila wanted me dead. But finn stopped her. He died for me.

Ridge: I’m gonna kill this woman.

Taylor: I’m gonna call the police. We’re going to go–

Steffy: No, no, no, no. You have to wait. Wait.

Taylor: What, why?

Steffy: Invite her over here.

Ridge: Steffy.

Steffy: I want to see her face when she’s busted. I want to look her right in the eye, and watch her squirm.

Jaycee tried gain flings

for the first time

[ Donna moaning ]

Donna: I don’t want to see my honey bear furrowing his brow like that. Your happiness matters, eric. Us being here, it’s– it’s cozy. It’s familiar. It’s beautiful. Okay? Don’t let this eat away at your conscience.

Eric: Na uh. I don’t regret any of this. Being here with you like this, is the best thing that’s happened in my life for a very long time.

Donna: Yeah, but you’re… feeling bad that you’re being unfaithful.

Eric: I’m feeling grateful. Grateful that… I have you with me to make me laugh. You make me laugh till I cry.

[ Donna chuckling ] Your affection. It means so much to me. You’re not too bad to look at, either.

Donna: Really? Huh.

[ Donna laughing ]

Eric: You see how happy you make me?

Quinn: You know what, carter, you’re right.

Carter: Yeah?

Quinn: Yeah, yeah. I am going to take your advice, and I’m going to call eric right now.

Carter: Okay, well, I’ll give you some privacy.

[ Phone ringing ]

Eric: It’s quinn. Quinn?

Quinn: Eric?

Eric, where are you?

Ridge: You want sheila to come here, to the house?

Steffy: Yes.

Taylor: No, sheila’s too dangerous.

Ridge: I agree with your mom, let’s call the police, have her arrested.

Steffy: She will be. Will make sure of it. I just– I need to see her first.

Taylor: Sweetheart, I understand why you think you need to see her, but–

Steffy: Mom, please, just– just call her.

Taylor: And say what?

Steffy: What does sheila want more than anything? To be part of hayes’ life, our family’s life. She’s desperate to be accepted. So we reach out to her, and we offer everything she’s ever wanted. And that’s when we call her out before she’s hauled off to prison for the rest of her miserable life.

Ridge: I don’t think that’s a good idea.

Steffy: Dad, please, I need this. I lost my husband. Hayes lost his father. I need to feel like I’m like I’m– like I’m avenging finn’s death, somehow.

Taylor: What if she has a weapon?

Steffy: No, she’s not– she’s not gonna bring a weapon in, if she knows hayes is here.

Taylor: Okay, I’ll call her.

Steffy: Thank you.

[ Call ringing ]

[ Phone ringing ]

Sheila: It’s taylor.

Deacon: Pick it up. What are you waiting for?

[ Phone ringing ]

Sheila: Hello, taylor.

Taylor: Sheila. I’m glad I caught you.

Sheila: I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to upset steffy, earlier at the house.

Taylor: She’s just trying to come to terms with– with everything that happened. Everything that happened with finn, the– the whole tragedy. Look, I– I know that you’re– you’re dealing with an– an enormous amount of pain and loss as well. And– and you’re missing hayes very much.

Sheila: Of course.

Taylor: He’s your– he’s your grandson. He’s the only part of finn that you have left. So I was thinking it would be a good idea if you– if you came back over to see him.

Sheila: Wait. What? You– you mean that? I– I would love to.

Taylor: Good. Good. I really want you to be here, sheila.

Sheila: You do?

Taylor: Yes. I do, very much. I just want to see you get what you deserve. Finn would want this. We have to honor his memory.

Sheila: You mean that?

Taylor: More than you’ll ever know.

Sheila: You– you have no idea what this means to me.

Taylor: I think I do.

Sheila: I’ll head right over

[ Sheila laughing ] It’s unbelievable! That was– that was taylor, and– and– it looks like I might have an opportunity to play a role in my grandson’s life.

Deacon: That’s awesome. I’m happy for you. Looks like you might not be leaving L.A. After all.

Sheila: Oh!

[ Both laughing ]

Ridge: You’re sure about this?

Steffy: Finn’s the reason you still have a daughter. My kids still have a mother. Because of my husband’s bravery, the sacrifice he made for all of us. I have to do this. I have to face his mother, his murderer. Sheila carter has terrorized her family for far too long. It’s time to put an end to it, once and for all.

[ Ominous music ]

Steffy: No, no, this… this can’t be.

Taylor: Steffy. Honey, are– are you seeing the shooting?

Steffy: Sh– shooting? No. No. Uh– why is she there?

Ridge: What are you– who? What do you see?

Deacon: Was it a good idea to make a surprise visit to steffy’s? Of course not. She’s just getting out of the freaking hospital. She’s trying to put her life together, and you show up, asking to see hayes. Come on, it didn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that’d go over like a lead balloon. But… just cause she slammed the door on your face, doesn’t mean you have to leave town. Sheila, give her some time to heal. Let– let her get her memory back, at least. Maybe then she’d be more receptive —

Sheila: No! No. I can’T… I’m out of options, deacon. I need to leave. I need to leave L.A.

Paris: This is our chance. I’ve officially put zende in the friend zone. I let him down as easily as I could, and he was okay with it. Now, there’s no reason not for us to be out in the open. We don’t have to hide. Unless you still have feelings for your boss’ wife? Is that what’s going on? Is quinn the reason why you’re acting like we can’t be together?

Eric: We absolutely need something for each one of these, right? Hello, you two. Everything all right?

Paris: Because now would be a perfect time to say it.

Paris: It’s a simple answer. Yes, or no?

Carter: I’ve, uh, got those reports across the hall. We should head over. See if we can figure out an answer. Excuse us.

Eric: What was that all about?

Paris: Okay, let’s see these “reports.”

Carter: Why would you do that?

Paris: Look, carter. If I had any doubts, I don’t have them. Anymore. You still are into quinn.

Carter: Quinn and i ended a long time ago.

Paris: Just because you stopped seeing her, doesn’t mean your feelings disappeared. If you had your way, you and quinn would still be together.

Deacon: What are you talking about, out of options? When it comes to hayes, you’ve got nothing but options. Not the least of which is your new bff, taylor. I mean, she was the one who talked to steffy and got you invited over last time.

Shelia: You know, she may have been my advocate then. But that’s not going to happen again. It sure as hell isn’T. I lost that chance, and with finn gone, that’s just one more excuse to make sure I am never going to be a part of hayes’ life. Now that– that’s too much. It is just-it’s too much. The walls they’re-they’re just coming in on me right now, deacon, okay? The walls are just coming in.

Steffy: This doesn’t make sense. Why–why would she? Why would she– why would she?

Taylor: Steffy, steffy… catch us up, okay? You– you said you followed someone into the alley. Someone you were angry with.

[ Sighing ]

Steffy: Okay.

[ Ominous music ]

Sheila: No!

Ridge: You did say “she.” Who– who is that woman? Who– someone you know?

[ Frantic breathing ]

[ Gasping ]

Taylor: Who is it? Who are you seeing?

[ Frantic breathing ]

Steffy: Sheila. Sheila.

Trelegy for copd.

Eric: I hope everything is okay with them. I mean, I’d hate for them to be having a problem. They work so closely together at the foundation.

Quinn: I don’t know, but whatever it is, I am sure they will work it out. And we have something… that we need to work out. What does my handsome husband want for dinner tonight? I was thinking—

Eric: Yeah, whatever you want to do will be fine. I’ll love whatever it is. I am late for a meeting, though.

Quinn: Oh. A meeting?

Eric: Yeah. And pickleball after, but I won’t be late. I promise.

Quinn: Oh. Okay. My very busy husband. Everybody is wanting your attention. I just… I just hope you save some of that attention for me.

Carter: What– I don’t know why you are saying this. But quinn and I did cause a lot of pain, a lot of damage. And I wouldn’t want to go back to that feeling of guilt. Betraying a friend. And that is one of the reasons why we can’t be together. I won’t do that to zende.

Paris: Even though zende and I weren’t exclusively dating? Even though I told him I was no longer interested in dating, at all? Hm. Okay. Cool. Carter, it is so clear that you have feeling for her. At least, it is to me. And it’s only a matter of time before ridge and eric realize it too.

Deacon: Just take a deep breath. Come on, do it.

[ Inhaling ]

Deacon: That’s good. Yeah. And– no more talk about walls closing in. What does that even mean?

Sheila: You don’t want to know.

Deacon: Yes, I do. I want to try and help you, sheila. I got to tell you. I think all this grief… it’s– it’s keeping you from thinking straight. You know, it’s– it is like you got this cloud over you, that’s– I don’t know, it’s making you feel like you have to flee the city.

Shelia: No, no, no. This is not a “feeling.” This is fact. I know that this is what would be best. It would be best for everyone, if I just left and I never came back again.

Ridge: Sheila?

Steffy: I can see her in the alley. She’S… she’s there. She’s looking at me.

Taylor: It doesn’t make sense. If– if she was there, she would’ve said something to the police. She would’ve given any information that would be helpful. She-she wants–

Steffy: No, mom. She was there. I know what I saw.

Taylor: Steffy, maybe it was when you woke up in the hospital, and you saw her. That was really shocking to you. Until you realized she was finn’s mother.

Steffy. No. No. I remember. I remember the alley. She was there. I remember her!

Ridge: What was she doing? What were you doing? What were you talking about?

Steffy: I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know. It’s still so confusing– like– I, I was upset. Or maybe she was. Gosh, it– it’s still kind of fuzzy.

Ridge: All right. Fuzzy…great. But– if she was there, is she protecting whoever did this to you?

Taylor. Oh, ridge. She wouldn’t protect her son’s killer.

Ridge: Okay, hang on.

Taylor: This is crazy.

Ridge: All right, steffy, I hate to do this. I hate to have you go back to that night and think about it but I think we almost have to now, right? Why was sheila there? (Dana)it’s very difficult for the family

Paris: You know what? Never mind. You and I both know that it’s not going anywhere with quinn. She’s married. To your boss. A man who treats you like family.

Carter: I’m well aware.

Paris: So, you know you’re gonna have to put her behind you.

Carter: I do.

Paris: And who better to move on with, than me…?

Quinn: Hey, carter. I was wondering if– I– I’m so sorry. I had no idea you were still in a meeting.

Carter: No. We were— we were actually just, uh, wrapping up.

Quinn: Oh, okay. Well, I actually have something I need to run by you. Paris, would you mind giving us a minute?

Paris: Not at all. Talk to you both later.

Quinn: Okay.

[ Paris chuckling ]

Quinn: You do know I was rescuing you, right?

Carter: Thank you. It was much needed.

[ Carter sighing ] She’s on to me.

Quinn: On to you?

Carter: Yeah. About my feelings for you.

[ Donna moaning ]

[ Both giggling ]

Donna: Who knew pickleball could be so exciting?

Eric: I should’ve taken pickleball up years ago.

Donna: Oh, yeah.

Eric: Wait, wait.

Donna: Okay. Stop. Stop. I know what you’re thinking.

Eric: What?

Donna: We can’t keep meeting up for these… “games.”

Eric: Oh, you’re right. I can’t, uh, stop feeling guilty about doing this to quinn. But I can’t stop thinking about you.

Donna: And I can’t stop thinking about you.

Deacon: Sheila, I can see that you’re suffering. It’s obvious how much pain you are in.

Shelia: No. It’s not. You don’t have a clue, deacon.

Deacon: Okay. Fair enough. Help me understand. Hey, hayes is your only connection to finn. And– your last chance at a family. Taylor, she’s been accepting you more and more, right? Especially since you saved her life. This is it. This is your chance to be a part of all of it. Why would you want to leave now?

Ridge: There’s gotta be a reason why you’re seeing sheila. Did you have a conversation? Anything? Remember any words you had?

Steffy: Gah, I don’t– I don’t know, dad. I’m trying. I’m really trying.

Taylor: Okay, honey, just– just take a minute. Give her a minute.

Ridge: We can’t stop now.

Taylor: Ridge.

Ridge: We’re getting so close.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Ridge: Hey. Look at me. You go to do this. For finn. What do you see? You are in the alley, it’s you, sheila and finn.

Steffy: Not finn. He wasn’t there at first. It’s just… it’s sheila and me. We’re at the restaurant. I think I must’ve called her or something. Because she seemed happy that I– I wanted to see her. But– but I’m angry. I told her she was worse than ever. And then, she left. She– she went into the alley, and I–I followed her. And I told her she wasn’t– she wasn’t gonna go anywhere. And now she’s angry. She’s very angry. She got in my face. And she– she pushed me against a dumpster and–

Ridge: What?

Steffy: The– the look in her eyes. She said she was going to stop me.

Taylor: From– from what?

Steffy: Gah! I don’t know. I don’t know. For some reason that finn won’t want anything to do with her. She said I should– that I– I would understand. As a mother I– I would, I would understand wanting to do anything to protect my relationship with my child. Oh, my god.

Ridge: What, steffy? What is it?

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Ridge: What?

Steffy: I told her she couldn’t see finn again. Or hayes. That’s when she– she reached– she reached into her purse. She reached into her purse. She didn’t even– she didn’t even hesitate. I’d only just seen him. He was suddenly there and finn just–

[ Gunshot ringing ] He just fell. He just fell. He was there.

Taylor: Oh, steffy. Are you– are you saying–

Steffy: Oh, my god. It was sheila! It was sheila! It was sheila. She– she shot finn! She killed her own son! She killed her own son. It was shelia. So what’s going on?

Quinn: Your feelings for me? Carter, I hope you set paris straight. ‘Cause there’s nothing going on between us!

Carter: I know.

Quinn: Okay, but does paris?

Carter: Yes. But…

Quinn: But what?

Carter: She also realizes I still care about you, and that I always will.

Quinn: Oh, carter, I will always care about you, too. But what we had between each other has to stay in the past. I am never going to betray eric like that again. And I can’t have paris walking around here, thinking that I–

Carter: Hey, hey. Don’t, don’t worry, okay? Doesn’t matter what she thinks. I know how committed you are to eric, and he does too. Despite my feelings for you, despite what we were together, that will never happen again. We will never hurt eric like that, again.

Quinn: No, we won’t! Eric had forgiven me and– and been loyal to me, even after what I did. I– I’m always going to appreciate having a– a faithful husband.

Eric: I can’t help feeling guilty. There’s something about being here with you. It just feels like– it feels like home.

Donna: I think I know what it is. It’S… the honey…

Eric: The honey? Yeah, maybe it is the honey.

Donna: It’s the honey.

Eric: Nah, nah, nah, that not just it. I think it’s you. It’s me with you. Laughing with you, kissing you. Holding you in my arms. I cannot stay away from you. You bring me such joy.

Shelia: It’s not that I want to leave. I don’T.

Deacon: So, stay.

Sheila: I can’T. It should– shouldn’t be like this. I– I should be holding hayes in my arms right now. And– and finn should be here. And he would be, if it weren’t for steffy.

Taylor: Sheila shot finn?

Steffy: Oh, my god. Oh, my god. I’m fin– finally remembering. On– on the ground, bleeding…

Ridge: Sheila. Of course, sheila —

Taylor: But how? That– that’s her son. Steffy, are you sure?

Steffy: Yes. Yes, yes, yes. Shelia– shelia, she– she stood there… with me… while finn was– I told him to hang on, but he… he couldn’T. He couldn’T. He couldn’T.

Taylor: Oh, steffy.

Steffy: I tried. I tried. I tried- I tried to call 911, and then– and then she came at me. She– she pointed the gun at me. And then she– she shot me. Shot me. It was sheila! Mom, it was sheila. It was sheila, she shot him, and then she turned the gun on me! She killed her own son!

[ Voice echoing ]

Steffy: Mom, you were gone for so many years, because of her. And now she’s taken my husband away. She killed her own son. I’m not going to let her get away with this. I want her to suffer. I want her to suffer. I want sheila carter to pay. She’s going to pay for what she’s done.

Steffy: Do not take another step, sheila. Not one more. If you think you’re walking out of here, think again.

Zende: Why are you joking around? If you don’t wanna tell me who this other guy is, you don’t have to, but I would hope, by now you’d be comfortable enough with me to–

Paris: Zende. It’s not a joke.

Zende: What? Y– you’re serious? You have feelings for carter?

Carter: Look, quinn, I don’t know why I got caught up with paris.

Quinn: Well, it’s not too hard to figure out. I mean, she’S… cute. And likable enough, to most people.

Carter: [ Laughing ] Okay. I just feel bad for going down that path with her. It’s never fun telling someone it’s over, especially when they don’t want to hear it.

Quinn: Look, I understand why paris is having such a hard time getting over you. I’m just glad that the feeling isn’t mutual.

Zende: Whoa, this is like, uh… okay, when you told me that I knew the guy, I wasn’t expecting carter.

Paris: I– I wasn’t expecting it either. Especially because i really enjoyed dating you. Of course I did. You’re a great guy. But… yeah. I’ve developed feelings for carter.

Zende: When? Have you been seeing carter this entire time?

Quinn: I realize paris probably has a lot of fine qualities, and maybe in another life she would have been your perfect match. But in this one, when you’ve almost lost everything because you were involved with me, not to mention she’s involved with a forrester, which is already a big deterrent.

Carter: Yeah. Yeah, that’s one of the many cons outweighing the pros.

Quinn: Mm hm, exactly. Wait, there are pros? I’m just saying… there’s a better match out there for you. Much better than paris.

Sheila: The– the last thing that I want to do is upset you, especially… while you’re still trying to heal.

Steffy: Yet you decided to show up uninvited.

Sheila: I did and that was my mistake. But why are you telling me I can’t go? Is that what you want to tell me? You– you want me to know?

Sheila: Because I– I swear I’m not going to do anything that-

Steffy: Yes, that–that’s exactly it, that is exactly it. I’m not letting you waltz on out of here thinking it’s no big deal to just show up any time you want. It is a big deal. A very big deal. And I’m not having it.

Sheila: Understood. And I apologize. I guess I was just hoping, knowing that we both lost finn and that you’re in as much pain as I am, I- I really just want to hold my grandson. I want to bond with him. And you know what? Like it or not, steffy, we are always going to be connected because of finn and hayes.

Steffy: You can go.

Sheila: I am sorry. And don’t even think about me, steffy. Please, don’t think about me at all.

[ Taylor sighing ]

Taylor: Honey, I shouldn’t— I shouldn’t have let her in. I am so sorry. Are you okay?

Steffy: I mean, am I ever okay when sheila is around?

Taylor: No.

Ridge: Hey. So, I’m in the guest house… what? What’s goingon?

Taylor: Sheila was here. She just left.

Ridge: Sheila was here?

Taylor: Yeah.

Ridge: Why? What’d she want? Are you one of the millions of americans

Zende: I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but this seems really weird to me. I mean, I have been completely upfront with you about all the dates I’ve been on. To think that you could have been hiding something like this from me, it’s–

Paris: That’s why… that’s why I’m telling you now. Because it’s not like carter and I have been dating. But I’d like to.

Zende: Ah, so, you should.

Paris: Yeah?

Zende: Yeah. I want you to be happy, paris. You know, I wish you could be with me, but if you think your happiness is elsewhere, then you’ve got to give it a shot.

Zende: Go ahead. Go where your heart is telling you to go. Even if it leads you to carter.

Carter: Okay, quinn. I know you have your reasons for keeping your guard up with paris.

Quinn: Legitimate reasons. I still can’t believe that you can get past what paris did and want to be involved with her. Oh, wait, not to mention that, huh, she is zoe’s sister.

Carter: I know. No, and… look, I can’t describe how it happened, okay? I just went with it and it felt good to have a woman look at me like that again. But I also know that it couldn’t go anywhere, so whatever happened between me and paris, it’s over.

[ Sighing ]

Quinn: Wise choice. Look, there are a lot of beautiful, intelligent women out there who come with a lot less baggage into a relationship than paris does.-Don’t worry, you will find the one.

Ridge: Sheila knows she’s still not welcome here, right?

Steffy: No, she isn’T.

Taylor: Well, if she didn’t know before, she knows now.

Ridge: Good. Hey, I know you’re feeling sympathetic towards her and I get it. Her son’s gone. But that doesn’t mean she can show up here whenever she wants.

Taylor: No, I know. I agree. I do. I– it was a mistake for her to come here–

Ridge: It was a mistake.

Taylor: Hey. Sweetheart, where’d you go?

Steffy: What?

Taylor: Honey, what is it?

Ridge: You know what it is. Sheila was just here.

Taylor: No, but sheila just left. What…

Steffy: No. No, it’s not just that.

[ Eerie whooshing ]

Steffy: I never feel good when sheila’s around, but this…

[ Eerie buzzing ]

Steffy: Something’s wrong.

Steffy: Something’s very wrong.

Deacon: Ah, you must be coming from steffy’S. How’d that work out for you?

Sheila: All right, you know what? Enough out of you. Things didn’t go quite as planned.

Deacon: Planned? Hah! You did not have a plan– just show up at steffy’s unannounced-

Sheila: All right, fine. You know what? It was a bad idea. A very bad idea. And way too risky.

Deacon: Risky? What– what do you mean, risky? If you’re washing with the bargain brand,

Quinn: I have an idea. It’s unconventional, but hear me out.

Carter: Okay.

Quinn: Okay. What if, just if, you expand your dating pool outside of forrester creations.

[ Laughing ]

Carter: Mind blown.

Quinn: What?

[ Exploding noise ]

Carter: No. No, no.

Quinn: No? It works.

Carter: Because all the awkwardness and anxiety of a workplace romance would go away, and I’ve grown quite addicted to it.

Quinn: You are an addict.

Carter: I am.

Quinn: Like a junkie.

Carter: I need help!

Quinn: You need to go to drama rehab. We need to get you into one. We’ll find you a space.

Paris: Am I interrupting?

Carter: No, no. We were just sharing a much-needed laugh.

Paris: That– that’s always a good thing.

Quinn: Yeah. Well, I need to get back to frowning because I have a reputation to uphold.

[ Quinn humming softly ]

Carter: So, what’s up?

Paris: Well, I did something that you should know about.

Carter: Okay.

Paris: Something that I should have done from the very beginning, from the moment we started seeing each other.

Carter: Paris.

Paris: Zende knows now. I told him about us.

Sheila: You know what I mean by risky. You said it was a bad idea, that I shouldn’t delude myself.

Deacon: And what do you know? I was right. Yet again. Hey, you look freaked out. I mean, more than you usually do. What’s going on? Come on.

Sheila: All I wanted was a chance. An opportunity to be a mother to finn. Steffy refused, and now he’s gone. He’s gone. I’m never going to see my son again. And that’s all steffy’s fault.

Steffy: I think I need to sit down.

Ridge: Come on. Here. Should I call bridget? Are you in pain? What’s going on?

Steffy: No. No, no, it’s not that.

[ Eerie whooshing ]

Steffy: I have this feeling of dread, and I can’T…

[ Eerie buzzing ]

Steffy: I don’t understand what I’m seeing.

Ridge: What are you– what are you saying? That you’re seeing something? You’re seeing someone?

Steffy: See il giardino. In the alley.

[ Eerie whooshing ]

Steffy: I can see finn.

Taylor: Okay. Breathe, baby, breathe.

Ridge: What else? Who do you see? Whatever gives you life

Carter: You told zende about us?

Paris: Okay, not everything.

Carter: What does that even mean, paris?

Paris: I was feeling guilty, okay? About keeping things from him. I just… I couldn’t take it anymore. When he asked me to be honest, if there was someone in my life, I felt like I owed him the truth. Or at least, partially the truth. But don’t freak out. I didn’t throw you under the bus, I just told him that I was interested in you and that I think it’s worth exploring. But this is a good thing! Now we don’t have to hide our relationship–

Carter: Paris. We’re friends, okay, paris? We’re just friends. That’s our relationship. Anything beyond that is over.

Paris: You’ve known me long enough to know that when I set my sights on something–

Carter: Paris, it’s-it’s not happening for us.

Paris: Why is that?

Carter: I told you.

Paris: You told me excuses about zende, excuses about my mom. But I think I know the real reason. You’re still hung up on quinn.

Deacon: What is going on with you? Steffy was a victim, too. None of this was her fault. What? Do– do you think somehow she could have saved finn?

Sheila: No. Just don’t pay attention to me, okay? Because I’m hurting.

Deacon: I understand.

Sheila: No. No. I don’t think you could possibly. I just think it’s time.

Deacon: Time?

Sheila: I can’t be here.

Deacon: Sheila, I’m not going to let you hurt yourself, if that’s what you’re thinking of doing–

Sheila: I can’t be in L.A. I came here because of finn. And now he’s gone, and steffy won’t let me have anything to do with hayes. So, there’s nothing left for me here.

Sheila: I have to go. I just have to go.

Steffy: I… I can picture the alley. And there was a– there was a– there was a dumpster.

Ridge: And there was you and finn. Anyone else? Other people?

Steffy: Finn.

[ Eerie whooshing ]

Steffy: Oh, finn. I can see finn.

Taylor: It’s okay, baby. We’re right here. Tell us what you see.

Steffy: I see a door. A door… a– bah– a– a back door. And then he came toward me, but we didn’t come together.

Ridge: You– you didn’t? What are you…

Steffy: No, no, I went… I went alone.

Ridge: To– to the alley?

Steffy: No, to the– to the restaurant.

Steffy: The whole drive over

here I was thinking about what

I wanted to say to you.

Steffy: I went there to see someone. No. No, no. No, I went there to… to confront them. It was… I was– I was angry.

Steffy: I know what you did.

Taylor: Okay, do you know… do you know what you were angry about?

Steffy: No. Someone…

[ Groaning ] Someone… someone did something. And it’s why I went there. I was– I was upset, so I tried to…

[ Eerie ringing ]

Steffy: I tried to stop– no. I followed them, I followed them, I followed… to the alley, and I– I grabbed them. I grabbed them and I…

Steffy: Everyone is going

to know what you did.


And you will never have

a place in our lives.

Not ever.

[ Gasping ] Oh, my god.

Taylor: It’s okay, baby. Breathe. Breathe. We are right here.

Steffy: You don’t

have a relationship.

Not with finn, not with hayes.

You’re never going

to see them again.

Steffy: Oh, my god. [ Gasping ]

Ridge: You know who did this? You know who did this to you and finn?

[ Gasping ]

[ Heartbeat intensifying ]

[ Dramatic music ]

Taylor: Hey. I can’t imagine the pain you’re in.

Steffy: I can’t believe he’s gone. He’s never gonna walk through the door again. A god, how can that be true? The last time I was in this house, so was finn, you know, filling it with love and laughter, and now he’s gone. And I can’t do anything about it, except– except try to find the monster who took him from me.

Taylor: And sweetheart, you’ll remember who shot you and finn when you’re ready.

Steffy: Oh my god!

Oh my god!

There’s so much blood!

Sheila: Oh, what have

I done? I didn’t–

I didn’t see him.

I didn’t know–

I didn’t know he was here.


Steffy: Your only son.

Sheila: I didn’t know–

I didn’t know he was here.

[ Knocking on door ]

Deacon: Hey, sheila? Sheila, it’s me, come on, open up. Sheila! Sheila, come on, open up.

[ Knocking on door ] Sheila, please–

Sheila: I’m here. I– what are you doing?

Deacon: I wanted to make sure that you didn’t do something awful. Something that couldn’t be taken back.

Quinn: Hey, you busy?

Carter: Uh, never too busy for you.

Quinn: Okay, okay. Question for you.

Carter: Mm hm.

Quinn: Do you prefer a, or b?

Carter: Hm.

Carter: A.

Quinn: Mm! Tell me why.

Carter: The colors are more vibrant in those stones.

Quinn: Exactly what I was thinking. Very good eye, and thank you for confirming my own, exceptional good taste.

Carter: Heh, anytime.

Quinn: Mm hm. What?

Carter: Uh, I’m just curious. How did things go with eric last night?

Paris: Hey.

Zende: Hey. Um, you okay? What’s going on?

Quinn: I don’t know if I should be discussing my relationship with eric, with you. I mean, that’s kinda what got us in trouble in the first place.

Carter: Mm, is that what I am? Trouble?

Quinn: Hah! Well, you certainly can be. Although, I think I got you beat in that department. I mean, I– I’m trouble, cubed. I’m trouble personified. Hehe, at least that’s what I’ve been told, most of my life.

Carter: I don’t see you that way.

Quinn: Well, of course not.

[ Tsk-ing ]

Carter: Speaking of trouble, I– I kinda think I am.

Quinn: Because of me?

Carter: No. No.

Quinn: Ah. Because of paris.

Zende: I can tell when something’s on your mind. You can share it with me. Whatever it is.

Paris: I’ve always loved that about you. Your sensitivity, how you pay attention. How you always encouraged me to speak my mind, and be open and honest with you, which is exactly what you deserve.

Zende: Uh oh, uh, I deserve honesty? About what?

Paris: About my feelings for you.

Steffy: Well, I’ve tried so hard to think back to what happened that night. I can’t remember anything specific. I just get– I get glimpses of things.

Taylor: Well, I know, sweetie, and that is, that is completely normal. You’ve experienced such a traumatic event, this is just your mind’s way of shielding you.

Steffy: No, I don’t want to be protected from the truth. I want to see the face of the monster who killed my husband.

Deacon: I brought you some food. You look terrible.

Sheila: Hah! Still as charming as ever, I see.

Deacon: Fine, come on, you know what I mean. Are you getting any sleep at all?

Sheila: Do you think losing finn is my karma? Because I have done some really terrible things in my past.

Deacon: This is what I know, not what I think. Finn died as a result of a– a cold-blooded, vicious, random attack that you had absolutely nothing to do with.

Sheila: Yeah. It’s just, uh… I really miss him. And I know I’m never going to see that beautiful face with these eyes ever again. There’s only one thing that can help ease this pain.

Deacon: What’s that?

Sheila: Hayes. I need to see my grandson. (Dana)it’s very difficult for the family

Quinn: I don’t get it. I mean, paris “appointed” herself judge and jury, when she found out about our affair, and told brooke, and completely blew our lives apart. And let’s not forget that, uh, she’s the sister of your ex-fiance. So, why would you want to be with her?

Carter: You know, quinn, when you put it that way…

Quinn: Right?

Carter: I guess I was a bit on the rebound. You’d just gone back to eric, shutting down my hopes for a future with you, and I was crushed.

Quinn: So, she took advantage of you?

Carter: No. No, she did not. No, we just– we just happened, and it was wrong, because she was still seeing zende, and that should have made her off-limits, especially after what happened with you, but quinn, this– this also happened because of you. It was like I– I needed to forget about us long enough to heal.

Quinn: But things are completely over between the two of you?

Carter: Yeah. Thankfully, zende is none the wiser.

Zende: You want to talk feelings, I’m your guy.

Paris: Well, you’re incredible, you’re sweet, you’re funny. You’re thoughtful, and one day, you’re gonna own the fashion world.

Zende: Eh, from your mouth…

Paris: No doubt, and there’s no one that’s more deserving than you. I mean, you’re an amazing guy, zende. We’ve been through a lot together.

Zende: Um, ah… uh, wait a minute, uh, why is this starting to feel like– are you ending this between us?

Steffy: Ugh, if I could just see the shooter’s face, then I would just– I would make them answer me for taking my husband away. Ugh, why can’t I remember?

Taylor: Maybe, because you’re still in recovery. You will remember. Your memory will come back. It will. And you’ll remember who did this horrible thing.

Sheila: You know it is so unfair. Li wouldn’t even let me say a final goodbye to finn. And steffy won’t let me anywhere near hayes. He is the only connection I still have to my son.

Deacon: Sheila, it’s only a matter of time before steffy remembers who pulled the trigger that night. Once that mystery is solved, once they arrest whoever did that, maybe then, she’ll be able to hear you, but I’m telling you, going over there now is a mistake.

Sheila: Yeah, well, thank you! Thank you so much for the good advice, my dear friend. But hayes in my grandson, and I need to see him. Facing steffy might be the risk I have to take. Hi, my name is cherrie.

Zende: So maybe you better catch me up. I know that we decided to pull things back a bit, keep it casual, see other people, but I still thought there was a connection between us.

Paris: Always.

Zende: Uh, yeah, okay, so, um, I guess, I– I misread something here. I never gave up on a future with you, paris, but it doesn’t sound like you want the same thing.

Paris: I– I don’t know how to explain it. It just, somewhere down the line, my feelings changed–

Zende: Hey, hey. Message received. Loud and clear.

Paris: I’m sorry, zende.

Zende: Hey, I don’t regret a single moment I spent with you. I’m grateful that we got to spend any time together, at all. I do have one question, though.

Paris: Sure.

Zende: Is this about something missing between us? Or, is there someone else?

Carter: When I ended things with paris, I said the same thing to her. I told her to go forward with zende.

Quinn: Only, she doesn’t feel the same way.

Carter: No, she’s not in love with him. Don’t get me wrong, she has deep feelings for him, how could she not?

Quinn: Right, right. I mean, come on. He ticks all the boxes, right? I mean, he’s handsome, he– he’s an up and coming fashion designer, he’s warm, he’s caring, he want’s to settle down and have a family, I mean come on, what more could paris want? Look, I don’t like her, and yeah, I’m totally judging her, I get that, but I can also understand why she would fall in love with you.

Steffy: Whoever killed finn, they’re out there, just walking around. They should be in prison. I have the answer, it’s in my head, I just…

[ Sighing ] I can’t seem to get to it.

Taylor: But you will.

Steffy: How? How? Do I have to be patient? It’s like, some kind of trigger?

Taylor: Yeah. Yeah. A trigger could happen when you least expect it.

[ Hayes fussing on monitor ]

Steffy: I’m gonna check on him.

Taylor: Okay. Let me know if you need anything.

[ Knocking on door ] Sheila.

Sheila: I– I’m sorry. I know that I should have called, but I– I was afraid with warning steffy wouldn’t let me in. I– please, taylor, you just have to help me. I– I… I want to see my grandson. Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Paris: Honesty is the least you deserve from me. So, yes. There is someone. A man you know very well.

Zende: Who?

Paris: Carter. I have feelings for carter.

Quinn: I know what it’s like to be alone with you. To be up close and personal with that insane charisma and off the charts sexual energy. I– ooh, I mean, I am a grown-ass married woman, and I lost my mind.

[ Laughing ]

Carter: Well, you weren’t the only one.

Quinn: I’m just saying I am familiar with your superpowers.

Carter: Quinn, stop!

Quinn: I can totally understand why paris fell head over heels in love with you. But I know you, carter. And I learned to hear what it is you don’t say.

Carter: What do you think that is?

Quinn: You may have gotten caught up in this whole paris thing, but you don’t feel about her the way she feels about you. Mm hm, am I right? Am I right? You don’t even have to say it. I know I’m right.

Taylor: Sheila, you should not have come by like this. Steffy doesn’t need any more stress.

Sheila: I– I know that it’s risky, and I don’t want to do anything that might set steffy off. But taylor, I lost finn too. Hayes is the only connection that I have left with him.

Taylor: I understand, but sheila, you can call me. Come in.

Sheila: Thank you. You– you know, li… shut me out. She wouldn’t even let me say a final goodbye to my son, and that tore my heart out. And now, I don’t– I don’t even– I don’t even want to open my eyes in the morning, knowing that he’s gone, every day, the endless days of knowing that I am never going to see finn’s beautiful face again, or even have the chance to make him smile.

Taylor: Sheila, you’re not thinking about harming yourself again, are you?

Sheila: No.

Taylor: Okay, good. Just remember, finn would not want that. I’m so sorry you lost your son, the– the pain is indescribable. But don’t make it worse by blaming yourself for something that wasn’t your fault.

Steffy: What?

Sheila: Hello, steffy.

Sheila: What is she doing here?

Taylor: She shouldn’t have come by like this, but she’s asked to see hayes.

Steffy: You know that’s not gonna happen.

Taylor: I do. I do, but I also understand why she’s here. She’s finn’s mother. Hayes is her grandson. Hayes is all she has left of her son.

Steffy: I get that, and I’m sorry. But that doesn’t mean my door’s open to sheila. She’s not allowed to see hayes. And you know it. So why exactly are you here?

Sheila: You’re right. This, this– uh, this was… a bad idea, I’m sorry. I’m gonna go. But you know, before I do, I want to tell you how terribly, terribly sorry I am, steffy. For your loss, and for mine.

Steffy: Wait! You’re not going anywhere, sheila.

Steffy: God! Ah. I got to hold it together, I got to hold it together for the kids, I don’t want my– my parents to worry, but I’m not okay, I mean, how–how can I be okay? My husband is dead. Some monster shot us, stole our future, like I– liam, I hate this. I hate this.

Liam: Hey, steffy, look at me for a second? I know that you feel like you have to be strong for everybody else, all the time, and it’s not true. Right now, it’s our turn to be strong for you, and we are going to get through this, we’re going to get through this together. I’m going to be there for you and the kids. Okay?

Steffy: Thank you.

Liam: Yeah, okay.

Steffy: Thank you.

Brooke: Honey, don’t listen to thomas. He’s trying to make you question liam and the strength of your marriage.

Hope: I won’t do that.

Brooke: Good.

Hope: But I can still not like that he spent the night at steffy’S.

Quinn: It’s not easy, rebuilding trust in a marriage once you’ve lost it.

Carter: And you and eric made a commitment to do that?

Quinn: Yeah, we’re trying, but I don’t know, it’s taking time. I– I love eric, and I’m, I’m so happy to be married to him, I just wish he was around more often, you know?

Carter: Mm.

Quinn: I’m glad he’s enjoying pickleball at the club, at least he’s being more active.

[ Eric sighing ]

Donna: Why do you always look at me like that?

Eric: I can stop.

Donna: No. Never.

Eric: It’s a good thing, because I don’t think I ever could. Not the way you make me feel.

Donna: Don’t you dare say I make you feel younger.

Eric: You make me feel lighter, that’s for sure.

Donna: Same.

Eric: Even though I’m a married man?

Quinn: I’m not feeling neglected.

Carter: I know.

Quinn: Just– I get that eric is busy, okay? He loves his work, he loves pickleball, clearly. I mean, it energizes him, so I’m not complaining, I just– I miss spending time with him, you know? I miss his arms around me. I used to be the thing that excited him the most and now, now I’m not so sure.

Donna: Eric, I– I didn’t think I’d ever see you like this ever again, I mean all those years sitting behind a desk, wanting to tell you how I felt, knowing I could make you happy like this.

Eric: I’m so happy. You make me so happy, happier than I think I have a right to be.

Donna: Eric, everybody has a right to feel joy, I mean that’s what life is all about, just– finding something to look forward to, something or– someone to excite us, that’s what you’ve always been for me. Now, I can finally be that for you too.

Hope: Don’t get me wrong, I understand why liam felt he had to spend the night, kelly is vulnerable right now, and she was scared, she needed her daddy, liam, I mean– he can’t say no to that.

Brooke: Apparently he can’t say no to steffy either.

Hope: Mom, what steffy and her family are going through right now, I mean, it’s tragic, and liam is, I’m sure it’s comforting to have him there, especially for kelly.

Brooke: Yes, yeah, I mean it’s sweet and it’s nice, to a point, but beth needs him too.

Liam: I’m not going to lie, it’s going to be tough, but– then again, so are you.

Steffy: Yeah, real tough.

Liam: Hey, steffy, can I tell you a secret? Being tough, being strong, it’s not the same as being a robot. Cry, grieve, th– that is exactly what you are supposed to be doing right now, and you don’t need to hide it from anyone, especially not me, I mean, look at me, I cry all the time.

Ridge: Hey guys, sorry.

Steffy: It’s fine, you guys don’t have to apologize.

Taylor: I snuck out with your dad and went to get you some breakfast.

Liam: Ah, that’s nice, I–i actually about to take off, so.

Ridge: Oh.

Taylor: Thanks for staying the night, liam.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: It meant a lot to kelly to have her daddy here.

Taylor: Yeah, kelly’s going to need her dad like she’s never needed him before. I sense that steffy feels the same way. Want your clothes to smell freshly

Quinn: I like that we can still talk and be open with each other.

Carter: Me too.

Quinn: Our relationship has changed but our friendship hasn’T.

Carter: Because what we had was more than just physical.

Quinn: Yeah, it was. It was more than that, I mean I– I turned to you because, because I wanted to be understood, and appreciated. You know, I never had to play a part with you, I could always just be myself.

Carter: That’s good.

Quinn: You showed me what I deserve, you know, and what I have to offer.

Carter: Eric knew it too, he just– he didn’t express it.

Quinn: That’s always going to amaze me, you know? The most eloquent man I have ever met in my entire life couldn’t express his feelings to me. It’s one of the things I– I love most about eric is, the beautiful things that he says to me.

Carter: You’re lucky to have each other. I’m really glad that you were able to find that again.

Donna: Hey, where’d you go?

Eric: I’m here.

Donna: I know you. No, I know this look.

Eric: Oh you do, do you?

Donna: Mm hm.

Eric: Look, if– if, if quinn knew what was going on with us she’d be devastated, and I– look, I care about her.

Donna: You just have the biggest, most generous heart, and you just– you want to share it with everyone, don’t you? I can’t be jealous of that, as long as you are sharing this part with me, okay?

Eric: Okay.

[ Laughter ]

Liam: Hi, hey guys, hi brooke.

Hope: Hi.

Liam: Hi, is everything okay?

Brooke: Now that you’re home.

Hope: How, um, how’s steffy?

Liam: Um, I mean, you know, physically she’s improving, it’s just, you know, with– with finn gone, and her worrying about the kids, it’s all sort of just weighing on her, still and–

Brooke: Well she has a huge support system helping her, her family, now that she’s home from the hospital, you can put your focus elsewhere. Back here, home, with hope and beth, and douglas, they need you too, liam. I brought in ensure max protein,

Quinn: Eric and I have been completely in sync for so long, I thought it would last forever.

Carter: You’re trying to get back to that.

Quinn: Yeah, we are, but it– it’s taking effort and– and that’s not something that I’m used to. Eric and I, we’ve never had to work at our relationship. It was always easy. But now, not so much. Pbut, I need to be patient and positive, two things I am not very good at. But eric is worth it. Our marriage is worth it, I just– I just have to have complete faith in eric’s love and commitment to me.

Donna: I don’t want to put you on the spot.

Eric: You don’T. Donna, what we share is exactly what I need. You bring a positivity to my life, you bring such light, it’s exactly what I need. Positivity, caring, and– and you make me laugh.

Donna: Yeah?

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Well, there is nothing I enjoy more than putting a smile on this beautiful face.

Eric: Yeah?

Donna: Yeah, because you are, and always will be, the great love of my life.

Hope: Mom, liam spent the night at steffy’s because kelly needed him.

Liam: And I really did, really did mean to call, I just– yeah?

Hope: I get that you want to help steffy, we all do, and she has this amazing support network there for her, all these people who want to help her.

Liam: Yeah, yeah.

Hope: So, I mean, if– if you ever want kelly spend the night here, we could also do that.

Liam: Oh yeah, uh, no, definitely, and I would, it’s just that right now I feel like kelly really needs to be with her mom.

Hope: Okay. Okay, so– so what does that mean for you, like how– how much time do you want to spend over there?

Liam: I don’t know, I– I don’t know, I mean– I guess I– I guess I’ll just have to see how things play out, I mean ridge and taylor are there, and she loves them, so that– that’s good, you know?

Brooke: How is ridge?

Liam: Uh, he’s– I mean, he’s worried, he’s worried about steffy and the kids, but it’s ridge, you know, he’s not going to show that. I want to be sensitive, I– you might not want to hear this, but I think as a family, they are really pulling together.

Brooke: Yeah, I mean, that doesn’t really surprise me. Ridge wants to do everything he can for his daughter, so– it just breaks my heart, knowing that he’s not coming home.

Ridge: We’re all here, whatever you need.

Steffy: I’m just so tired.

Taylor: I know, baby. I know. Why don’t you go lie down okay? Get some rest, let your father and I take care of things.

Ridge: Slow down. Okay? It’s going to be okay. She’s going to be alright.

Taylor: I’m just glad we’re doing this together. Showing our kids that they can rely on their parents.

Ridge: And that their parents can rely on each other.

Carter: Have you been as clear with your feelings to eric as you’ve been with me? He might not spend so much time away if he knew how much you missed him. I mean, if I was in his shoes, I’d think about taking a sabbatical, or at least a very long, romantic vacation.

Quinn: Says the man who once offered to run away with me.

Carter: Yeah. Heh. I’m grateful for everything that we experienced, quinn, but I knew we couldn’t keep sneaking around.

Quinn: No, it’s not the man you are.

Carter: It’s not the relationship I wanted to have with you. If I get involved with anybody, they can’t be involved with anyone else, I can’t cross that line again.

Quinn: Ugh, neither will I. Eric never has to worry about that. I will be as faithful to him as he has always been to me.

Donna: I just want to treasure every little moment that I have with my honeybear.

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: Why won’t you come home, ridge?

Ridge: You know, I– can’t imagine going through any of this without you by my side.

Taylor: I hate, I hate that I haven’t been here, I hate that I was gone for such a long time. I– I’ve missed out on so much, I should have been here. I should have been here when– I missed out on finn, I missed out on so many things, I–

Ridge: Well, you’re here now, and doc, I couldn’t be any more grateful.

Taylor: Doc… you say that and it reminds of- reminds me of happier times, but I don’t think we’re going to see those for a while, ridge, I am so worried. Steffy can’t remember anything, she doesn’t know what happened that night. The– the events of that night are gonna– are gonna be so hard to cope with, when she can’t even remember what happened. Hayes is going to grow up without a father, and– and kelly, even though she tries to pretend she’s okay, she’s not, and she’s scared.

Ridge: Okay. Okay, look at me, look at me. We have to focus and we have to find a way to get our family through this. Protect our daughter, make sure she’s okay.

Taylor: She’s going to struggle.

Ridge: Yeah, she is.

Taylor: Yeah.

Ridge: But she has your strength, and she has you. You’re going to be here. So am I.

Taylor: Good, because I need you to be.

Ridge: I’m not going anywhere.

Brooke: Please, ridge. [ Sighing ] Come home.

Quinn: Aw, I’m sure steffy

Eric: Apparently steffy had a really wonderful homecoming last night. The babies were very happy to have their mama home.

Quinn: Aw, I’m sure steffy felt the same way.

Eric: Yeah.

Quinn: Although, it must have been bittersweet, given what happened to finn, knowing that their family isn’t going to be whole again, not the way it used to be.

Eric: It’s just such a senseless tragedy, some random back alley robbery gone wrong. I just– I just hope they find that scumbag that did it.

Quinn: Steffy still can’t remember who shot her and finn?

Eric: No, but it’s just a matter of time.

Quinn: Ugh.

[ Phone chiming ] Unless the memory is so traumatic that she never regains it, you know? And in which case– eric? Hey. Hi. Thought I lost you. Where’d you go?

Carter: Eric, I have these contracts– I can come back.

Hope: Liam, it’s me again. Uh, officially starting to get worried now. So, can you please get back to me? Thanks. Bye. Hi.

Brooke: Hope? What is it? What’s going on, honey?

Hope: I don’t know a where he is. Liam never came home last night. He didn’t come home.

Liam: [ Exhaling ] Oh! Oh no, no… hope.

[ Liam sighing ]

Steffy: She has always been a daddy’s girl.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: When did she come out?

Liam: Right after you went to bed.

Steffy: Thank you for staying the night. It meant a lot to the kids. Their mom, too.

Eric: Carter, it’s all right, come on in. Come on in. We’re just talking about steffy.

Carter: Yes. She was released from the hospital last night.

Quinn: Yeah, she’s doing much better.

Eric: Thank god. A long road ahead, though.

Carter: Yeah, dealing with the loss of finn.

Quinn: Yeah, it won’t be easy. I mean, what they shared was intense and passionate.

Eric: It’ll definitely take time. It will. But she has her children. She has her family.

Carter: And a loving grandfather who will be there for her whenever she needs.

Eric: That’s right. And apparently liam, he’s stepped up too, I’m told.

Carter: It’s no surprise there. It’s no secret how much liam still loves and cares for steffy.

Eric: Yeah.

Brooke: Wait a minute. You’re telling me you haven’t seen or heard from liam since he went to steffy’s last night?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah, I obviously waited up for him, fell asleep on the couch, woke up this morning, and he still was not here.

Thomas: Hey. Uh, just thought I’d stop by and see if douglas is back from his sleepover yet.

Hope: He is not.

Thomas: Ah. Well, obviously my timing sucks. So, heh, I’ll just go.

Hope: Hey, uh, just fyi in case you were wondering, um. Liam never made it back last night, so.

Thomas: Wait. Seriously? Liam stayed the night at steffy’s?

Liam: I gotta charge my phone. I fell asleep last night before I could text hope. But she’s so peaceful, I don’t want to wake her up.

Steffy: Hayes is too, I just checked on him. He’s still in dream land.

Liam: Yeah?

Steffy: Yeah.

Liam: How about you? How did you– you okay? D’you sleep okay?

Steffy: I mean, I’m just glad to be out of the hospital, not attached to all the tubes and machines.

Liam: Yeah. I don’t blame you. Just ’cause you’re out of the hospital doesn’t mean you should not be taking it easy.

Steffy: I know.

Liam: All right.

Steffy: Bridget already laid down the law. I’ll be good.

Liam: Good. Hey.

Kelly: Daddy, you’re still here.

Liam: Yeah, I am. Of course I’m here. I’m always gonna be here for you, and your mommy.

[ Chuckling ] I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Carter: Do kelly and hayes know about finn yet?

Eric: As of last night, no, not yet. But, uh, steffy’s not going to be able to put it off for much longer.

Eric: Well, hayes is still so young, I doubt he’d understand. But kelly might.

Eric: Well, luckily, her father is around there. I mean, liam– liam will be a great help in all this.

Carter: To steffy too, I imagine.

Eric: Yeah.

[ Phone chiming ] All right, I have to go.

Quinn: Oh. A– a meeting?

Eric: No, uh, pickleball.

Quinn: Oh. Oh, well, I’m so happy you’re staying so active, honey.

Carter: Eric, I thought we were gonna go over these contracts.

Eric: Oh, we’ll do that later.

Quinn: Oh, but maybe after your game, we could grab some lunch?

Eric: Yeah, we’ll see.

Quinn: Oh… ‘kay.

[ Eric closing door ]

Carter: I don’t mean to pry, but is everything all right between you and eric?

Thomas: You know what, I– I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that liam stayed the night at steffy’S.

Brooke: Yeah, he’s probably just trying to be nice. Didn’t want steffy to feel alone, even though she’s not alone. I mean, she does have her mother and father there.

Thomas: I– don’t disagree, but… you know what? Not going to get in the middle of this. You will talk to your husband when he gets home.

Brooke: Look, why don’t you just give him another call?

Hope: Oh, and get his voicemail again?

Thomas: She has a point.

Brooke:: Oh, thomas, please. You’re not helping.

Thomas: Fine. I won’t say anything else. Except that–

Brooke: Oh…

Thomas: We all know how liam feels about steffy, okay? Like, yes, of course, he– he’s married to hope. And of course he– he has a family with her. And he loves her. But he also loves steffy. Look, this is just liam. This is– this is how it is. It’s who liam is, when it comes to steffy.

[ Brooke chuckling ]

Brooke: What are you, a broken record?

Thomas: It’s the truth.

Liam: All right. Plug this in. That should turn on in a minute. Chooga, chooga, chooga, chooga…

Steffy: Oh, look at that piggyback ride.

Liam: Yeah.

Kelly: You’re next, mommy.

Steffy: I am.

[ Laughing ]

Liam: I think mommy’s going to give you the best piggyback ride– actually no, you… actually, mommy’s not going to be doing any piggyback rides ’cause uh, we have to go easy on her. She just got home from the hospital, huh?

Kelly: Okay, I’ll save my biggest, bestest hug until you’re all better.

[ Liam laughing ]

Liam: That a girl.

Kelly: It was fun having daddy stay. Right, mommy?

Steffy: Yes, sweetie. It is.

Kelly: I was sad that mommy was gone.

Liam: Yeah, I was, too. I was really sad. But you know what? Mommy’s home now. She’s home and–

Steffy: And you don’t have to worry. I’m not going to leave you or your little brother ever again.

Kelly: Promise?

Steffy: Pinky swear.

[ Kelly yawning ]

Liam: Oh.

Steffy: I think someone’s still tired.

Liam: I think so, too.

Steffy: Why doesn’t daddy bring you into your own bed? You can drift off for a little bit, okay?

Kelly: Will you still be here when I wake up? I don’t want you to go. You said that you would shave your eyebrow off

Quinn: I’m not really sure how to answer that.

Carter: So, you’re not sure if things are right between you and eric?

Quinn, uh, I’m– I’m sure that I love my husband, and he’s given me the best years of my life. But… like I confided to you earlier, things haven’t been the same between us since…

Carter: Since you and i became involved.

Quinn: Yes, which I take full responsibility for. I never should have been unfaithful to my husband, no matter what was going on between us at the time.

Carter: When you needed someone to confide in, someone who’d listen and understand.

Quinn: I know. And you did. You listened to me, and you didn’t judge me. But I let it go a little too far.

[ Quinn sighing ]

Carter: We both did, and we paid the price.

Quinn: Yeah, but eric’s been able to forgive you. You know? Everything’s fine between you. He’s been able to move past all of that for you. I just– it gives me hope that maybe he’ll be able to move past it for me too, and that at some point, our marriage will get back into sync.

Carter: You know how much I want that for you, right?

Quinn: I do. I know all you want for me is my happiness, carter. And I want the same thing for you.

Brooke: Thomas, please. Hope doesn’t need you trying to undermine her marriage.

Thomas: That is not what I’m doing. I’m just pointing out that liam can’t seem to not–

Brooke: We are all aware that liam and steffy have a history. A history that you tried to take advantage of just to get close to my daughter.

Hope: Okay, mom. Stop. Please, both of you. All right? I realize, better than anyone, that steffy and liam will always have a bond. And I have advocated more than anyone that our families should get along and try to be supportive of one another, especially now. However, there is a way to go about doing this that is respectful to both of the families. Liam’s with me, and his with steffy.

Thomas: I completely agree. But shouldn’t you be saying this to liam instead of to brooke and me?

[ Door opening ]

[ Liam chuckling ]

Liam: She– she felt right back to sleep.

Steffy: Not surprised. Did she ask about finn at all?

Liam: Um, no, but… yeah, she– she can tell he’s missing, yeah.

Steffy: Well, she’s used to him spending long hours at the hospital. But I’m sure she’s realized something.

Liam: Yeah. But listen, just– don’t worry about that now because we’re going to– we’re going to do it when you’re ready. And we’ll tell her together. And we’ll break it to her really gently. And we’ll just– we’ll find the right way to do it. It’s all we can do.

[ Phone ringing ] That would be hope. Hey.

Hope: Thank goodness. I– I’ve been worried about you.

Liam: I– I bet you have. I am so sorry. Kelly was scared last night. She wanted her daddy. And then I fell asleep with her on the couch. And then my phone died, and I–

Hope: No, I– I get it. It’s just I fell asleep waiting for you. And then I woke up and you weren’t here and it– you know what, never mind. Um… how’s steffy? Is she settled in?

Liam: Yeah, I think so.

Hope: Great. Well, I’m sure you’ve been a big help. But you know, she also has her parents there. So, it’d be nice if you could come home.

Liam: Oh, y–yes, definitely. Um, I just, uh… yeah. I’m on my way soon.

Okay, bye.

Steffy: You’re not in trouble, are you?

Liam: No. No, hope… she understands. Trust me.

Steffy: Does she? Really?

Carter: I’m glad that we can still talk like this.

Quinn: Me too. I really value our friendship. More than you know. I like having carter walton, coo, in my corner.

[ Carter chuckling ]

Carter: Always. But you should know that eric’s your greatest champion. And it’s clear how much you love him. You have a wonderful husband.

Quinn: I know.

Carter: And the rest will work itself out.

Quinn: Yeah. You’re right. I just have to remember how lucky I am to have such an honest and wonderful man who’s completely committed to me.

Donna: My sweet, adorable, honey bear.

Hope: Liam is on his way home now. He, um, stayed the night because kelly was scared and she needed him. He was there for his little girl, the way a good father should be.

Liam: Ah, you don’t worry about hope and me, okay? Like, she– she’s very well aware of the horror you’re going through right now.

Steffy: I know, but I don’t want her to think–

Liam: I– I know what you’re– look, regardless of the history between you and hope, she is 100% supportive of my relationship with kelly. And she knows that I was here last night for kelly, too. And besides, I’m the one who messed up by falling asleep on the couch and not texting her, so–

Steffy: I’m sorry. I am.

Liam: Why?

Steffy: Because… I’m trying to be strong, you know, for my children and my family. But to know that finn’s not coming home… that hayes is never going to see his daddy again, like…

[ Crying ] I miss him so much. And he’s gone. He’s gone forever. But I have to keep moving forward. I have to– oh god, I have to, I have to for hayes, and for kelly.

Liam: Okay, but… not at the expense of taking care of yourself. You have to heal yourself first, and that’s not going to happen overnight. You have to give yourself time, right? To breathe, to– to process the grief, to process, to mourn finn.

Steffy: I just felt–

Liam: And you have so many people– listen to me, you have so many people in your life who love and care about you. Your mom and dad, they would do anything for you. I would do anything for you. I mean, I’ll be here, too. The whole time.

Steffy: Thank you. I just felt alone last night. And it meant a lot that you stayed, not just for kelly, but for me, too. And I’m really, really grateful for you.

Liam: You–

Steffy: I am. I really, really am.

Liam: You don’t have to thank me for anything, ever. It’s not how this works. And me and kelly, we’re a family. And we’re always going to be a family, okay?

Taylor: Oh, kelly, that is beautiful. Did you do that all by yourself?

Kelly: Yeah.

Taylor: Oh, it’s so good. Your mommy’s gonna love it, right?

Thomas: We did not have as much time as we wanted to prepare, but kelly really wanted to make something special for steffy. I, uh– I wasn’t sure that this was-

[ Hayes babbling ] Exactly, it wasn’t gonna happen. Uh, you know? I don’t know.

Taylor: I know. We’re so lucky that steffy’s coming back home.

Thomas: Hi.

Ridge: Okay.

Thomas: Uh-oh, I think I hear somebody. Are you guys excited to see your mom?

Kelly: Yeah!

Thomas: Yeah.

Ridge: Hello, hello. Special delivery.

Thomas: There she is!

Steffy: Hi, baby. Aw, I missed you so much.

Kelly: I made you a sign.

Steffy: You did? Aren’t you the sweetest little girl there ever was?

Kelly: I’m not little. I’m a big girl.

Steffy: Yes, you are. Gosh, you have grown so much since I’ve been gone. But I’m home now. Mommy’s home.

Liam: Beth is finally asleep. Three books later.

Hope: Only three? I think you got off easy there.

Liam: Yeah, well, I failed to disclose it was the same book over and over and over again.

Hope: Well, uh, douglas was thrilled to head to his sleepover. So, now we finally have some time to ourselves to–

Liam: Awesome.

Hope: — Decompress. I know, um, things have been pretty stressful for everyone, so…

Liam: Yeah, no, it’s been a– it’s been a rollercoaster. Although steffy’s being discharged, which is– which is really nice. So, that’s good.

Hope: Yes. It’s the best news we’ve gotten in a while.

Liam: Yeah. Bittersweet. I mean, with finn not being there when she gets home. I just– I just know that steffy is really, like, raw, both emotionally and physically. And I also don’t know how that’s going to affect kelly. And i just feel like I should really be there for all of them–

Hope: Liam. Liam.

Liam: — Tonight, just to preside over–

Hope: Liam.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Steffy knows how supportive you are. So, let them have their family moment tonight, and then you can see her in the morning.

Kelly: I made these for you.

Steffy: You did? Oh, my goodness. How do you know these– these are my favorite?

Taylor: You’re doing such a good job making your mommy feel special.

Thomas: So, uh, sis, can i get you anything? Like water, tea, lollipop?

Steffy: Lollipop, I’ll take you up on that later. I don’t think anyone wants a lollipop…

Kelly: Me!

Thomas: Okay. Round of lollipops coming up.

Ridge: Hey, you know you have to take it easy on your mom. She just got here.

Steffy: Don’t tell grandpa, but we’re gonna have a big dance party as soon as I can.

Ridge: Oh!

Taylor: Yes. Yes, we are. Because we have a lot to celebrate.

Thomas: Uh, kelly, do you want to show me where your mom “hides” the candy? Yeah? All right, come on.

Ridge: Come here, big guy. Come on, you’re coming with me.

[ Ridge making baby noises ]

[ Ridge and thomas chatting ]

Taylor: Hi, baby.

Steffy: How I do this, mom? How do I do this without finn? Is hayes ever gonna understand that his father’s never coming home?

Liam: I wish I could just shut the worrying off, but I can’t, so… I don’t know, I just hope steffy and the kids are okay.

[ Phone ringing ] Ha! Hey. I was just about to text you.

Kelly: Daddy.

Liam: Kelly? Hey, sweetheart. Is, uh– is mommy there?

Kelly: She’s home, daddy. Mommy’s home.

Liam: I know. I know. Isn’t that amazing? I bet you’re so, so, so, so happy. Does mommy know that you have her phone?

Kelly: No. I want you to be here, too. Please, daddy, can you come?

Liam: Um… yes, of– of course I’ll come. I’ll– I’ll see you soon. Okay. Bye, sweetheart. Uh, that was kelly. As you might have guessed.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Liam: Um… she wanted me to come over to the house. And just given the circumstances, I know that you really wanted a quiet night together, but I can’t– I can’t say no to my daughter.

Hope: No, no. Of course not.

Liam: Okay. I’ll be home soon. I’ll check in. Okay?

Hope: Okay.

Liam: I love you. I love you.

Hope: Love you.

Liam: Okay. Bye.

Hope: Bye.

[ Door shutting ]

[ Brooke chatting indistinctly ]

Brooke: Uh, honey. I just, uh, saw liam leaving. I thought you two were staying in tonight.

Hope: Yeah, I, um, thought so, too. But he went over to go be with steffy. Now glossy hair starts

Hope: Steffy survived a gunshot wound and she made it back to her kids. That’s huge. That is something to be celebrated.

Brooke: Yes, it’s a tremendous relief. We’re all very grateful that steffy’s on the mend.

Hope: Yeah. And I mean, I get ridge wanting to be there for his daughter to welcome her home and help get her settled in. I mean, I’m sure he probably threw her a party or something. It– it– I love that about him.

Brooke: Well, I love that about him, too.

Hope: But, you know, I also wish that maybe he weren’t staying in steffy’s guest house and maybe he could be staying at home with you–

Brooke: I have faith that that will change. And as far as you wanting liam to be home with you right now, don’t worry, honey. He will be back soon.

Hope: Mom, no, I know. I’m just– I know kelly will be overjoyed to see her dad and steffy will appreciate the visit.

Brooke: It’s gonna be an incredible homecoming. They’re all gonna be so happy that steffy is recovering.

Hope: Yeah. Steffy’s putting on such a– a brave face for those kids, you know, trying to stay strong. But I mean, all the while, there’s this dark cloud hanging above all our heads, which is this empty space that finn left behind.

Steffy’s: Finn’s gone. I just… it’s like he’s gone forever. I mean, it doesn’t make sense. Like, that’s it? That’s all you get? That’s it?

Taylor: It’s profoundly unfair. Finn should be here. Hayes should have his father.

[ Hayes giggling ]

Steffy: I can’t even imagine how scared finn was… in those last moments. I…

Taylor: No, no, I can’t imagine. Honey, I am gonna be here for you as– as– as much as i possibly can be. I promise you. But tonight, just– let’s– let’s focus on the good, okay? You’re– you’re home and you’re– you’re reunited with your kids.

Steffy: When do I say something?

Taylor: We will figure that out, baby. I promise you, but… not tonight.

Ridge: Hey.

Steffy: Hey, baby. Oh.

Kelly: I missed you, mommy.

Steffy: You have been such a courageous big sister. Thank you for taking care of your little brother. And thank you for rallying around the kids and me. I don’t think I would’ve been able to make it through without your love and encouragement.

[ Door opening ]

Kelly: Daddy!

Liam: Hey! Come here, kid. Oh! God, you’re getting big.

Steffy: Liam.

Liam: Hey. So, is– it’s okay I stopped by, yeah?

Ridge: Absolutely.

Steffy: I was just catching up.

Liam: Yeah. Well, this is nice to see for me. I mean, you on this couch with this kid, in this house, surrounded by all the people who love you and that you love. If you have type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure

Hope: Oh. Liam just texted and said that he is going to be a little longer at steffy’S. Oh.

Brooke: Really? It’s already kind of late.

Hope: I’m sure it’s fine. And he will call me on his way home.

Brooke: Well, I think it’s admirable that he wants to be there for steffy and kelly. That’s the kind of man he is. And I know he’s under a lot of stress because of the shooting. But still, you’re his wife.

Hope: Ah, mom. Look, I have come to accept the fact that steffy and liam are always going to be connected. They are. I accept that. It’s just…

[ Sighing ] Okay, fine.

Brooke: What?

Hope: Maybe I overheard something when I was at the hospital.

Brooke: Like what?

Hope: No, it’s nothing. It’s– he was probably just trying to be sweet and reassure steffy.

Brooke: Oh, okay. Something is making you very uncomfortable.

No, it’s just– mom, it’s the same old stuff of, “oh, steffy, you’re always going to have a place in my heart. And hope is, too, and sometimes that can be hard to hea… hi, thomas.

Brooke: Hi, thomas.

Thomas: Hi.

Hope: Hi.

Thomas: Um, I– I– i honestly just came by to say goodnight to douglas.

Hope: Did you not get my text? He actually– he left for that sleepover at damien’S.

Thomas: I’ve been driving in the car. I haven’t–

Hope: I’m sorry. I feel bad you drove all this way for…

Thomas: That’s all right. It’s– I can just– I’ll see him in the morning. But I couldn’t help but overhear when I walked in. About what liam said to steffy. Look, I don’t want to sound like a jerk, but I’m not surprised. I mean, liam’s always gonna love steffy.

Liam: Storytime, check.

[ Sighing ] I got to tell you. You know, if somebody told me you were just discharged from a hospital, I don’t think I’d believe him. You look like you’re ready for a runway.

[ Ridge chuckling ]

Steffy: I feel like I’ve been hit by a semi.

Taylor: Your body is still healing, sweetie.

Steffy: I just wish I could have put hayes to bed. You know, it’s been so long.

Ridge: Well, you’ll get there one step at a time.

Steffy: It was really sweet of you to stop by. I wasn’t expecting that.

[ Liam laughing ]

Liam: Uh, confession. Uh, I think I got a little nudge from a certain someone. Our daughter stole your phone and called me to tell me to come over.

Steffy: Seriously?

Liam: Yeah. I– you know, she’s excited you’re home and I think she was feeling celebratory.

Steffy: I can’t believe that. What a stinker.

Taylor: Just like her mom.

Ridge: And her grandmother.

Steffy: Well, we have some strong genes in our bloodline.

Liam: Oof, that’s an understatement.

Steffy: Oh. I just wish I knew who did this to finn and to me.

Ridge: All right. Let’s– let’s just enjoy what we have. You’re home. You’re doing better. Kids are healthy.

Taylor: Yeah. We understand that you’re grieving, you’re experiencing every emotion in the book. You just– just need to be gentle with yourself.

Steffy: Trying.

Taylor: I know.

Steffy: And you need that, too. You need some rest.

Ridge: Rest, what? I’m all right.

Steffy: You’ve been up since I’ve been at the hospital. Seriously, you guys need to go to bed. I’ll see you in the morning.

Taylor: Are you sure?

Steffy: Yeah.

Taylor: Okay. All right, we’ll get some rest. I’ll just be upstairs if you need me.

Ridge: Oh, god.

Taylor: I love you.

Ridge: And I’ll be 30 feet that way, you know I’ll be. Goodnight.

Steffy: Night.

Ridge: I love you.

Steffy: I love you.

Taylor: Goodnight.

Ridge: Goodnight.

Liam: Night.

Ridge: Night.

Steffy: Thanks for being here.

Liam: Of course.

Kelly: Seeing you and daddy is better than all of the kitties and puppies in the whole wide world.

Liam: Oh, my god. Yeah, it is, isn’t it? Oh, boy. From the very first touch.

Liam: Isn’t awesome that mommy’s home now? Is it the best?

Kelly: It’s the best.

Liam: It’s totally the best. Well, listen, um, it’s getting kind of late. It’s past your bedtime. I know that mommy’s tired. So, how about you and me, we go into your room and I’ll read you another story? Yeah? Cool.

Steffy: Come here. Give me one more hug before go. My baby. Oh, goodness, come here. I love you, sweetheart.

Liam: All right.

Steffy: I love you.

Liam: Kid, you come with me.

Steffy: Goodnight.

Liam: Night.

[ Door shutting ]

Hope: Still haven’t heard from liam in a while.

Thomas: Yeah, well. Liam is probably just busy with kelly.

Hope: No, it’s fine. I just– it’s late, and I thought he might be home by now.

Thomas: Look, I’m not trying to bring you down or anything, I’m just being realistic. Liam has always loved steffy.

Hope: Mm.

Thomas: You’re a very compassionate person, right? And you want to be very cool with all of this, right? But it doesn’t change the fact that he’s over there taking care of his ex and their child. Look, I– I’m just kind of worried about you. I don’t want to see you getting hurt. I also– I don’t want you to be in, um– in the same position that your mom is. With a man whose heart is split between two women.

Liam: Kelly is conked out.

Steffy: That’s good. I get the feeling this has affected her more than we realize.

Liam: Yeah, it has. But I think she’s gonna sleep pretty soundly tonight knowing her mom is right here in the other room. And you, look at you. You need rest. I think I might take off in a minute, okay?

Steffy: Please don’t go. I don’t want to be alone tonight. I have so many firsts ahead of me. First night without finn. First cup of coffee in the morning. The first time hayes calls out for his daddy.

Liam: It’s too much. It’s just too much. I wish you didn’t have to go through any of this.

Steffy: Like, I’m grateful to be back, but, like, all of the memories of finn. Like, oh, my god, I keep on thinking I hear his car pull up or he’s gonna walk through the door. But he’s not. He’s never coming back.

Liam: Oh, my god. I’m sorry–

Steffy: I’m never gonna have my husband here. My son’s never gonna have his father. Like, I just feel like I’m suffocating. Like my heart’s being ripped out of me. So, please, can you please– please don’t go. I don’t– I don’t want to be alone.

Liam: I won’t, okay. I won’t, I won’T. I won’T. Here’s the thing. Finn’s irreplaceable. There’s never gonna be another finn. But right now I think what you should try to focus on is all the people you have in your life that you get to lean on. And that includes me. I’m not kidding. I’m always gonna be there for kelly. And that means I’m always gonna be there for you, okay? I’ll always be there for you.

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: You’re really sweet to say all that, but you have your own family with hope.

Liam: Yeah, I do, but I’m always going to be there for you too, and by the way, it’s not just me. There’s so many people in your life that care about you. Yes, I am– I am hope’s husband, but I am also gonna be there for you, always.

Taylor: Steffy just woke up. Liam’s still in there with her.

Brooke: How is she?

Taylor: She’s surprisingly well considering how quickly she found out about finn’s death. I’m just happy that liam is there for her the way that he is. She seems to take more comfort in liam than anyone else.

Brooke: Okay, well, there’s a lot of people who love steffy, so the responsibility of steffy’s comfort shouldn’t lie solely on liam.

Taylor: I’m just so happy that he’S… he’s so willing to be there for her during this difficult time.

Brooke: Yes. I’m glad that he can be so helpful. And need I remind you that liam is hope’s husband, not steffy’S.

Steffy: Oh, my god! There’s so much blood! Finn! Oh, my god!

Sheila: My beautiful son. I am so sorry for what I did to you.

Steffy: Finn! Finn, talk to me. Please talk to me.

Sheila: I didn’t– I didn’t see you. I didn’t– I didn’t know he was here. It was a horrible accident, finn. And now you’re gone. I’ve got to find a way to… to survive. And that means that steffy can never remember what happened that night.

[ Knocking on door ]

Deacon: Sheila, it’s me. Open up. Come on, sheila. Open up.

Sheila: Yeah, just– just a second.

Deacon: Uh-oh. I know that look. Who do you have in your sights this time?

Sheila: What do you mean by that?

Deacon: Nothing. Just,& you know, you seem a little more intense than usual. I mean, it’s understandable with everything that’s happened. I, uh… I stopped by earlier. You weren’t here. Did you go back to the hospital? Any change in steffy’s condition?

Sheila: She’s still conscious.

Deacon: That’s great. Uh, you’re relieved, right? I mean… sheila, I understand under ordinary circumstances, you’re not a big steffy fan, but I– I mean, she’s your girl taylor’s daughter. She’s your grandson’s mother. You– I gotta believe that you’re grateful that she’s getting better.

Taylor: Brooke, I am not trying to matchmake liam and steffy.

Brooke: Okay, okay. I– I just want to make sure we keep it that way.

Ridge: Is everything okay?

Brooke: Fine.

Ridge: All right. Let’s– let’s try and remember that the most important thing is steffy and her full recovery. Yes?

Brooke: Mm-hm.

Taylor: Mm-hm.

Bill: Hey, hey.

Ridge: Oh, great.

Bill: Sorry. I’m just getting here now. I was out of town.

[ Ridge sighing ]

Brooke: Liam told us.

Bill: I can’t believe this. Finn is gone? Steffy’s shot?

Taylor: Yeah, it’s unthinkable.

Bill: But, there’s some good news, right? Steffy’s, uh, regained consciousness.

Ridge: Yeah, thank god.

Taylor: Liam’s in with her right now.

Steffy: I need you so much, liam.

Liam: Well, I’m not going anywhere. And you should count on that. I’m gonna be in your life always, whether you like it or not.

Steffy: I don’t know how I’m gonna do this. How could finn be gone forever?

Liam: It’s– it’S… unfathomable.

Steffy: And hayes? That poor baby. I just wanna hold him. You brought kelly in. Can you… could you please bring–

Liam: Hayes. Yes. You don’t even have to ask. I’ll make it happen, ‘kay?

Steffy: Thank you.

I’ve got moderate to severe

plaque psoriasis.

Bill: Steffy’s memory is coming back but she doesn’t remember who shot her and finn?

Ridge: Not yet.

Taylor: I think it’ll come back soon. I just hope it’s not in a way that’s too jarring.

Brooke: Well, steffy is dealing with a lot.

Taylor: That’s why I don’t want her to be forced to remember anything–

Ridge: I know, and I get all that, but the– the sooner we find somebody, the sooner we can get him off the street.

Hope: Hey, you’re home.

Bill: Yeah, I got here as soon as I could.

Hope: I know, um, liam’s gonna be really happy to see you.

Brooke: Are you okay?

Hope: I… yup. I’m just, uh, I’m tired. I’m really tired.

Taylor: Yeah, this whole thing has been exhausting.

Bill: I can only imagine.

Ridge: At least steffy’s out of danger.

Liam: Dad.

Bill: Hey.

Liam: Hey.

Bill: Hey, hey, hey. Whatever you need, okay? I’ve already got our private investigators on this.

Liam: Good. Whatever it takes. Hey, listen, um. Steffy wants to see hayes. I think– I think I’m gonna run to the house and grab–

Taylor: I’ll go get him.

Liam: Re– you sure?

Taylor: Yes.

Liam: Because I can go.

Taylor: No, no. No, liam. Steffy needs you here. I– I’ll go. I got this.

Liam: Okay.

Ridge: I’ll walk you out. I’m gonna check on steffy.

Taylor: Okay.

Liam: How about you? How are you doing?

Bridget: Your lungs are doing great. I’m gonna take you off oxygen. One second. You’re healing so nicely and so… quickly.

Steffy: Not quick enough. I just need to get home.

Bridget: How’s your pain?

Steffy: Five, six.

Bridget: Okay. That’s a little higher than I’d like. Is it intermittent or constant pain?

Steffy: Pretty much constant.

Ridge: What’s this about pain levels? What are we talking about here?

Steffy: It’s nothing I can’t handle.

Bridget: I know we’re being super cautious, but I can give you some relief.

Steffy: No, no. I just need to get back home and be with my kids, especially hayes.

Bridget: He’s gonna be all right. I’m gonna go look at some of your latest tests and I’ll check on you in a little bit, ‘kay?

Ridge: Thank you.

Steffy: I wanna see my son.

Ridge: Well, taylor is getting him right now.

Steffy: Okay, good.

Ridge: You want some water or something? Feeling all right?

Steffy: Hm.

Ridge: Anymore memory flashes? Any idea who did this to you?

Deacon: I ju– I just wanted to be supportive. I mean, I– you know me, I’m not exactly mr. Sensitive, but I know how much pain you’re in, to go up to that rooftop like that. I could only imagine how much you’re suffering. I– I’m sorry.

Sheila: I just never realized that… you can experience so much pain in a lifetime. How? I just– what was finn doing in the alley? It makes no sense at all. My son is– is dead, deacon, and he should be here with us.

Deacon: He had so much left to give, to be shot down like that. Look, I just want you to know that I’m here for you. You wanna talk, you wanna scream, let it out. Hell, you can even hit me if you wanna.

Sheila: Hit you? Oh, god. Don’t tempt me.

Deacon: I’m serious. You– you can’t keep this kind of emotional devastation inside. It– it– it’ll eat you alive. Use me, just– no judgement here. Just– just tell me everything. Everything. With so many nourishing shades,

Liam: It was really touch and go for a while there, you know? It was just– it’s just scary, really scary.

Bill: I’ll bet.

Liam: But, you know, it’s steffy. She’s a powerhouse. It’s just… if you had seen her, I mean seen her in that bed, it’S… really something.

Bill: I’m sorry I couldn’t be here sooner, liam.

Liam: No, you– no. You’re here now. That’s what matters.

Bill: How about you, hope? How are you holding up?

Hope: This is A… awful situation and… whoever did this is still walking around free.

Liam: See, th– that’s– you know what gets me? Is the randomness of it. I mean, this was not– like, this– this was just a normal night gone wrong and steffy almost died because of it.

Bill: That had to be so incredibly frightening for you. I know how much steffy means to you. Let’s be focused on the good news, right? Steffy is on the track for a full recovery.

Liam: Yes, yes. Thank god.

Bill: Yeah. Now, she just needs to get her memory back so we can find the bastard who shot her and killed finn.

Deacon: Something real and painful’s happened to you, sheila. Losing a child, I– I don’t think it could get any worse than that. I just want you to know that you can trust me. You can open up to me about your feelings. I want to try and help you through this. If listening is all I can do, then– then tell me all about it.

Sheila: You know, when I came face-to-face for the first time with my son, I looked into finn’s eyes and I saw so much of my own. First time in my life I felt whole. I felt complete. Like anything was possible, even my redemption. Finn and hayes, they were gonna make me a good person. Somebodywho’s worthy of them. But, now my son, he’s gone. I lost him. And I’m afraid I’m about to lose everything else.

Ridge: I don’t wanna put anymore pressure on you. You’ve been through so much already.

Steffy: My husband was murdered, dad. My son lost his father. I want this monster caught more than anyone. I just want to remember.

Ridge: So, try to put yourself back in the alley. Can you do that for me? What do you see?

Steffy: It’s like it starts to come back. I was there. Why can’t I remember?

Ridge: Taylor says it’s– it’s your brain protecting you from a reality you’re not ready for.

Taylor: Hey. Look who I have.

Steffy: Oh, my goodness. Come here. Look at you. Oh, baby, look at your eyes. Oh, my goodness. Hi. Oh, baby. Hi, my baby. Hi. You got so big. It feels so good to have you in my arms. Oh, my sweet angel. I’ve missed you so much. Your daddy would have…

[ Hayes babbling ] I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I– I love you. I love you so much. And I’m right here, okay? You’re never gonna be alone. Never. I will always be right here to protect you.

Deacon: I know that wasn’t defeat coming from my friend, sheila. Yeah, I said “friend.” You’re my only friend. Sheila, you’re a street fighter. Sheila carter isn’t down for anybody’s count.

Sheila: Yeah, well I– I don’t know if that’s true anymore. Losing my son is the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. And you can’t even begin to understand how this horrible thing has changed me.

Deacon: Yeah, sure. For now. You feel like everything that means anything has been taken away from you, but that’s not true. Finn wouldn’t want you to believe that. He wouldn’t want you to just give up on life. Not just for him. Sheila, they are gonna catch the shooter, if for no other reason, they’re gonna do it for the forresters. And that means justice for finn. And when they get that son of a bitch, they’re gonna make him pay for what he did to your son.

[ Taylor laughing ]

[ Hayes babbling ]

Steffy: You see what a mess mommy is when I’m away from you? I know, but I promise I’m coming home as soon as possible, okay baby? I am. We’re gonna be a family again. You, kelly and I. We’re gonna get through this. We will. Gosh. You look so much like your daddy. Okay, baby. Oh, bo. Ah, bo, bo.

[Steffy clicking her tongue ] Oh, bobo. Hey, let’s sit this way. Here.

Bridget: Oh, good. You’re all here, even this little peanut. Hi, precious.

Steffy: Oh, I hate being away from my children.

Bridget: I know, honey. I know how awful this has been for you, but I am so happy to tell you, you’re not gonna have to miss them anymore.

Steffy: What do you mean?

Bridget: You’ve improved so much, I can release you.

Steffy: Are you serious? Oh, baby!

Bridget: That’s so good!

Steffy: Yay!

Bridget: Yes!

Ridge: You think she’s well enough to go?

Bridget: Yeah. I would never allow it otherwise.

Taylor: Oh, my god. That is wonderful.

Ridge: Oh, my goodness.

Taylor: Thank god.

Steffy: So that means I can– I can go home today?

Bridget: As soon as we discharge you, yes.

Steffy: Oh, thank you so much. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

Ridge: That’s the best news. She gets to go home and heal. That’s the best.

Taylor: And we promise she won’t do too much.

Bridget: Okay, I am really counting on that.

Taylor: Ugh.

Bridget: Oh, my love. I’m gonna go put in that order for you so you guys can be fast tracked and you can get him home.

Ridge: Sure. Thanks.

Steffy: I know. It might be better. Take care of that baby. I’m coming home. I’m coming home with you. Mommy’s coming home.

[ Dramatic music ]

Sheila: Your memory

is coming back.

How long before

you remember everything?

Every sickening detail

of that awful night?

I don’t want to do this,

but I don’t see

any other way.

Hope: Liam, I know you want to be there for steffy.

Liam: Yeah, but it’s not just steffy. It’s– it’s kelly and hayes.

Hope: Of course. Of course. Sweetie, I know you feel like you have to do more. I do too. We’ve all been operating out of this place of fear that hayes and kelly might lose their mother, only, they didn’T. Steffy got lucky. She survived.

Brooke: Steffy is your priority and her well-being comes before everything right now.

Ridge: I haven’t been able to think about anything else.

Brooke: Of course not. What happened to her was tragic. She lost her husband. And she’s going to need her father. She’s gonna need all your support, and I want to be there to help. I am still your wife. I just can’t spend another night without you.

Ridge: As long as steffy is here, this is where I need to be.

Brooke: Yes, of course. But she is getting better. I’m sure it won’t be much longer before she can come home.

Ridge: I hope you’re right. When she is home, she’s gonna need all my care and attention.

Brooke: Mm-hm. She will. And we can all be there for her, support her, even hope and liam. We’ll all be there for the children and for steffy. But, you and I have been apart too long, ridge. I need you to come home. Please, don’t go back to steffy’s with taylor.

Hope: Taylor, hi.

Taylor: Hey.

Hope: How’s steffy doing?

Taylor: She’s resting.

Liam: It’s been a hell of a day.

Taylor: My daughter has a lot more of those ahead of her, I’m afraid.

Liam: It’s just so much for her to process right now.

Taylor: It’s an overwhelming amount. Suddenly finding out about finn’s death and realizing she’ll have to raise her son without his father. It all just happened so fast.

Liam: You… you said that steffy’s still resting?

Taylor: Yes. Thankfully.

Liam: I think I’m gonna go check on her.

Hope: Is everything okay?

Liam: Yeah. I– I’m getting a– I’m sure it’s nothing, I just, um… I– I won’t wake her if she’s sleeping. I’ll be back.

Sheila: Why? Why do you

force me to do these things?

I don’t want to hurt you.

I don’t– I don’t want to

be this person.

I was going to be better

than this.

But you robbed me of

that chance. And now,

there’s only one way out

of this for both of us.

With your past, they’re just

going to think you got your

hands on more meds somehow.

Goodbye, steffy.

Liam: Sheila? What, uh… what are you doing? This is the sound of nature breathing.

Brooke: Steffy and finn will never get another day together as husband and wife.

Ridge: It’s not right. It’s so unfair.

Brooke: It’s terrible. Finn’s never going to come home to his wife.

[ Ridge sighing ] But you can.

Ridge: Stop, you– I understand what you’re saying. What happened here just turned everything upside down.

Brooke: I know. It made me realize that I can’t live with this gulf between us for one more day. Life is too short, ridge. Our life together, it’s too precious.

Ridge: I know. And I’m– and I’m so glad that you’re here and that you’re– your suppor means a lot, it does.

Brooke: Of course. There’s nowhere I’d rather be. I wanna be right by your side, and I know that now more than ever. I really wanna fix this. I don’t know what I need to do or say to get you to agree to work on our marriage together. I just– I miss you and I want you back.

Ridge: Okay. I miss you. I do. And I thought our marriage was solid, that we were in a good place.

Brooke: Yeah. We were.

Ridge: We were.

Brooke: I’m sorry. I’m sorry–

Ridge: No, stop, no. I’m not asking you to apologize for what deacon or new year’s or anything. We will have this conversation. We will. But not now, I’m– I’M… I’ve got to focus on my daughter. I gotta make sure she recovers completely, okay?

Brooke: Okay.

Hope: Um, don’t let me keep you, if you want to check in on steffy.

Taylor: Oh, no, no. I’ll give liam a moment. How are you?

Hope: I’m– I’m trying to stay positive. You know, help out where I can. Support liam. Look after the kids.

Taylor: Mm. I can’t thank you enough for that.

Hope: Happy to do it.

Taylor: You know, it’s amazing how much a crisis like this can bring people together.

Hope: Well, um, steffy’s very important to liam. They share a child together, so.

Taylor: Yeah, they share so many happy memories and such a– such a wonderful history. Steffy’s gonna need a lot of support from people she can rely on, people that she trusts. Like liam.

Liam: What were you doing though? You should not be in here.

Sheila: I was just checking on her. Checking on what? You’re not family and you’re not on the medical team.

Sheila: I am a nurse.

Liam: You’re not her nurse.

Sheila: You– you act like I don’t care. Like this shouldn’t be affecting me, but it does, more than you know.

Liam: I get it. I know. This is a very emotional time for you, but you are not involved in her treatment.

Sheila: I don’t expect you to understand, but I am deeply invested in steffy’s recovery.

Liam: Because you think she might know what happened to your son?

Sheila: Yes.

Liam: Ask the family how she’s doing and let the doctors do their job. This– this is not– you’re–

Sheila: You have no idea what this is doing to me.

Liam: I–

Sheila: No, you don’T. I come to this hospital everyday and I’m the outsider looking in, and pacing these hallways, just waiting for something to happen.

Liam: I can imagine how frustrating that is.

Sheila: I don’t think you can. I wanted to do something for steffy. Now that she’s getting stronger, she’s starting to remember things.

[ Steffy grunting ]

Liam: Hey.

Steffy: Liam.

Liam: Yeah, hi. Hi. It’s, uh, we didn’t mean to wake you up.

Steffy: You again. For people who are a little intense about hydration.

Taylor: Moving forward will take time. This is going to be incredibly difficult for steffy and the children. We have to be patient.

Hope: But we also have to be realistic. She’s going to need all of our support because you’re right, it is going to be incredibly difficult and she’s already starting to remember and eventually, she… will remember all those awful details about that night.

Taylor: That’s why I’m just so happy that liam has promised to be there for her.

Ridge: Hey. Everything all right? Is there any news?

Taylor: No, um, bridget hasn’t given us an update.

Hope: Liam just went in to see steffy.

Taylor: Yeah, I was just telling hope how wonderful it is that liam still cares so much for our daughter.

Steffy: What is she doing here?

> Liam: As far as I know, she was just leaving.

Sheila: I can go.

Steffy: No. Finn. You lost him too.

[ Sheila sighing ]

Sheila: Yeah, but we– we don’t have to talk about that.

Steffy: We’re both grieving. He was my husband. Your son. We share this, but it doesn’t make us friends.

Sheila: If you could’ve just given me a chance, steffy, things could’ve been so different.

Liam: Okay, we’re not gonna– we’re not gonna do that. We’re not gonna play the “what if” game because that’s not healthy and frankly, steffy does not owe you that.

Sheila: Okay, you know what? You’re right. Because it doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t change the past. We just have to figure out how to go forward from here, so… I’m gonna leave. I’m sure the two of you want to be alone. But I will be back. I have to put an end to this. Steffy can never remember the truth about finn’s death.

Here’s candice…

Sheila: Damn liam for interrupting. I could’ve put an end to this once and for all.

Taylor: Sheila, hi. Are you okay?

Sheila: Taylor, I am… I’m just feeling a little helpless right now.

Taylor: That’s understandable. Hey, is there anything I can do.

Sheila: No, no, no.

Taylor: Okay. I realize this– this must be torture for you.

Sheila: Oh, it… it just… it keeps getting worse and worse.

Taylor: Sheila, I– I know that there’s– there’s nothing that anybody can do or say to bring finn back, but I assure you, the truth will come out. Hey. They will find who did this to your son and my daughter.

Brooke: So, what were you and taylor talking about? Steffy’s memory problems?

Hope: Yes, if she’s ready to face what happened. Though, I’m not sure her mother really is.

Brooke: She mentioned liam and how said how much he still cares about steffy. You don’t think she was insinuating that they should be together?

Hope: I don’t want to believe that.

Brooke: But, you got a feeling.

Hope: Well– mom, steffy suffered a terrible loss. One that’s going to impact the family for years to come and she needs a lot of support right now. So, I think maybe taylor is just trying to find anything to help.

Brooke: Really hate to say this about taylor, but I don’t trust her. How many times has she assured me that she didn’t come back to L.A. For ridge? And yet, she’s with ridge. And now that finn is gone, I’m sure she’s gonna want steffy and liam to reunite.

Hope: All right, mom, I know you’re trying to support, but you’re really not helping me so I’m going to go find liam now. Okay? I love you.

Liam: Sheila was already in here when I showed up. But maybe I can ask and see if there’s a way to keep her out.

Steffy: Sheila’s been here the whole time?

Liam: Yeah, pretty much. Which is weird, right?

Steffy: Maybe she wanted to… feel closer to finn. She’s grieving too. The way he died… it must’ve been so awful that I… I blocked it out. I blocked out finn, our… our life. Our son.

Liam: Steffy, listen. You– you were shot, right? You were actually shot and you were unconscious for a long time. It is a miracle that you remembered anything at all when you came to.

Steffy: I just want–

Liam: And sheila, I’m sure you’re right that she is grieving, but that’s not the point. The point is if you don’t want her here, she doesn’t get to be here.

Steffy: I just want to go home, liam.

Liam: I know.

Steffy: I want to be with my children.

Liam: I know, and you’re well on your way to that, I promise.

Steffy: I miss my babies. I don’t know how this is going to affect them. Affect all of us. Like, how am I going to explain this? Who took finn away? Why?

Liam: I don’t– I don’t know, but you’re not going to do it alone. You’re not going to do any of this alone.

Steffy: Finn’s gone. My family’s been destroyed.

Liam: Your family has not been destroyed. Your family will live on just like finn’s memory will live on. In your memories, in stories when you tell hayes about his father. In kelly’s memories of the time they shared together. Think of all the walks on the beach and the trips to the park.

Steffy : Yeah, kelly gets to do that with her father. Hayes doesn’t get that chance.

Liam: Hayes– hayes is still– hayes is part of us, right? He gets to come along anytime he wants and so do you. I know that it’s impossible to imagine a life without finn, but I also know that you’re going to do it because that is who you are. That’s what you do. You’re just– you are just a survivor and that is a fact about you. I mean, steffy, you have so many people you can count on, including me.

Steffy: What about hope?

Liam: You can count on hope too.

Steffy: That’s not what I meant.

Liam: Hope… that– that’s just not something you need to be worrying about right now. I’m– I’m always going to be there for you, and that– that has to be an anchor point. Yes, I’m married to hope, but you’re still always gonna be a huge part of my heart and I’ll be damned if I let you go through this alone. I’m not going to, ever.

[ Steffy sobbing ]

Steffy: Finn… finn, he’s– he’s gone? I don’t–

[ Stammering ] But why? How?

Thomas: Nobody knows yet, sis.

Steffy: He’s dead? Someone shot and killed my husband?

[ Steffy sobbing ]

Brooke: I wonder how it’s going. Telling steffy–

Hope: It’s going to be painful. They’re trying to help her remember finn and the life they shared.

Brooke: It seems cruel, yes. But there’s no way we could have let her go on believing that she and liam were still together.

Brooke: This must be very difficult for them, having to break this news to her. I just feel for ridge. This must be killing him, seeing his daughter in pain like that. I just wish there was something I could do. I wish I could… be there for him.

Hope: Mom… by being here, you’re helping him. And I know that he appreciates it.

Bridget: Yeah, of course he does. Don’t give up on ridge. You two will always work things out. You always have.

Brooke: Until maybe we don’T.

>>Taylor: Sweetheart–

[ Steffy sobbing ]

>>Ridge: I’m so sorry.

[Steffy sobbing]

Steffy: How… how could I forget finn? And now he’s gone.

[ Steffy sobbing ]

[ Steffy sobbing ] I thought– I thought we were together.

Liam: I know. I know. But I’m still here for you. And I always will be.

Sheila: I will be, too. I will steffy, if you let me. I know you probably don’t want me anywhere… around. I’m– I’m assuming that you at least remember that. Finn was my son. And knowing that he’s– knowing that I’m nev– I’m sorry. Just it’s painful knowing that he’s gone.

[ Steffy sobbing ] No matter who you are,

Brooke: Oh gosh, I feel bad talking about my problems with ridge, while steffy’s lying in a hospital bed recovering from a gunshot. She lost her husband. I mean, I’m being so selfish.

Hope: Okay, mom. Stop right there. Those are two completely separate issues. You weren’t selfish for wanting your marriage to survive.

Bridget: Mom, you two are far from over.

Steffy: Sheila. I remember. I remember you’re finn’s mother. You gave birth to him.

Sheila: Yes. Yes, I did.

Steffy: I’m sorry. I know you’re hurting. You just got to know him and now he’S… he’s gone.

Shelia: That’s something I don’t– I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to accept. I don’t– I don’t know if I’ll ever understand it. How could this have happened? It was my last chance to be part of a– a family. To be accepted. And now– I’m sorry for you… too, steffy. And hayes. ‘Cause that precious little boy is going to grow up with no memory… of his father. You have no idea how devastating that is for me. He should– he should be here for years, for– for all of us. None of this should have happened. None of it.

Taylor: It was a senseless act. One we will be reeling from, for a long time to come. But we’ll be here for one another… and we’ll grieve together. Hayes may never know his father. But he’ll know of him… through pictures and stories.

Shelia: I hope so.

Taylor: I know so. And he’ll not be forgotten.

Ridge: We’re not going to forget that someone is responsible. We’re going to find them. We’re going to put them away. Promise you.

Sheila: Yeah, that’s what we all want. I’m going to– I’m going to leave. I’ve taken up enough of your… family moment. But you know what? You could have told me to leave. That I didn’t belong. That I was never finn’s mother. You chose kindness. That coming from you, steffy, that– that little bit of understanding when I know that you’re going through so much pain and grief of your own. It means a lot. So, thank you. You’ll never know how sorry I am. How terribly sorry I am always going to be. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Bridget: Hey, everyone. I’m just checking on steffy. How is she?

Thomas: Well, we explained… about finn.

Ridge: And she’s starting to remember. So that’s good, right?

Bridget: Very good. Hey, honey. I’m so, so sorry.

Steffy: Thanks.

Bridget: When you say starting to remember, do–

Taylor: Just finn, hayes.

Bridget: Okay.

Steffy: My son. I want to see him.

Taylor: Steffy, maybe we should wait until–

Steffy: Please. I so want to hold him.

Taylor: I understand. Okay baby. We’ll get him.

Bridget: Right now, you just need to rest. Okay, honey, you’ve been through so, so much.

Steffy: I am tired.

Bridget: I think maybe just one or two more minutes.

Ridge: Yeah.

Bridget. Okay.

>>Ridge: That’s fine.

Thomas: Uh, hey sis, uh, hang in there. We’re going to make it through this.

Steffy: My son. Please.

Taylor: I know. We will– we will get him. And you will hold your son again soon.

Liam: We’re all here for you. And we’re going to do whatever we can to help you heal.

Brooke: Do you think we should have gone in too? Steffy’s going to need all the support she can get.

Hope: No. We shouldn’t overwhelm her or liam. They’re dealing with enough stress, as it is.

Brooke: Understandably. Steffy is kelly’s mother.

Hope: Oh, believe me, I get it. I would be freaking out if I were liam. He’s always going to care about her and– it’s what I love about him. He’s going to help her through this. Liam!

Liam: Hey.

Hope: Hey. How’d it go?

Liam: Oh.

Brooke: Does steffy know about finn?

Liam: Yes. Yes. But at first, she was just confused. Like, just struggling to even understand anything we were saying to her. But then– then the memories started coming back and– and you could see the look on her face change. And it was just– it was horrible. I– her realizing that… the husband that she was only now finally starting to remember, is gone. It…

Ridge: You okay?

Taylor: I just want steffy to get better. Focus on her health. Now she’s got this enormous grief to face.

Bridget: Taylor, I’m sorry I didn’t discuss it with you beforehand. I should have. But it… was something you were going to have to face eventually, anyway. And I think she’s really ready.

Thomas: She must be. Once we told her about finn, she started to get her memory back.

Ridge: And maybe that means she’ll get the rest of her memory back as well.

Bridget: Oh, well she’s remembering finn and hayes. I think it’s imminent.

Taylor: I agree. It shouldn’t be too much longer. She’ll be able to tell us about who did this.

Bridget: Yes.

>>Nurse: Excuse me, dr. Forrester. Steffy’s due for another round of pain meds, but her chart says to check with you.

Bridget: Oh, uh, yes. Well, she’s sleeping right now. So, if she wakes up, and she’s uncomfortable, we’ll stay ahead of the pain. But I know steffy doesn’t want to go down the road of addiction again. We’re always cautious, but we’re even more so, in this case.

Nurse: Of course. Thanks.

Ridge: It worries me.

Thomas: Yeah.

Bridget: She’s in good hands. We’re watching her very closely. Are you tired of washing dishes?

Ridge: Not something i thought I’d have to do. Tell my daughter her husband’s gone.

Brooke: I feel sorry for steffy. And for you, too. Ridge, I just want to be here and hold you and support you. Love you, as a wife should.

Ridge: Logan, look, I–

Brooke: It’s hard for me, to see you from afar. To see how much pain you’re in. I feel as your wife, I should be there as an anchor. And that’s kind of difficult because we don’t live together right now. We’ve helped each other through worse times. This shouldn’t be any different. I just want you to know that you can lean on me. I wish you could. I want to be there as your wife. And I want us to be there for each other. So please, just come home. Come home to me, please.

Liam: Yeah. I’ve been so– just– just, uh… worried. Or whatever.

Hope: I know.

Liam: And not even just– not about steffy. I mean, steffy, too, but like kelly, and hayes. And oh, my god, like, what would have happened if steffy didn’t pull through? You know, like, thank god that didn’t happen. I’m still worried. It’s like, you know, kelly and hayes now their– their lives– they’re just to be so radically different, you know, with– with– with finn gone and their mother now grieving in the hospital. And all these– it’s just– it’s a lot. It’s a lot. And I– I’ll step up. That’s it. That’s it. I’ll just, I’ll step up. Like–

Hope: Hey.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: You always do. Liam, I admire your strength. I do. But, you know, you don’t have to do it all by yourself. You got me.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: You got me, and I’ll help with steffy and the kids. And we’ll do this together, like we always do.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: And also, don’t forget that steffy has an amazing support system outside of us. She’s got her family, and we know that they’ll pitch in.

Liam: Yeah. Yes. Yes, you’re right. I just– I don’t know, it’s just– I’m kelly’s father, you know? So I just feel like I have to do my part because it’s– it’s really– it’s my job. It’s my job to be there.

Hope: Hey… yes, it is. But now you can also breathe. Because the worst part is over.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: She’s awake.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: She’s recovering.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: While that is going to be a difficult road– hey. Steffy survived. So, whoever wanted to end her life didn’t succeed.

Sheila: I’m running out of time, aren’t I? You’re already remembering finn, hayes. How much longer until you remember what happened in the alley? Imminent. Bridget said imminent. And the next time you open your eyes, you might be telling everyone what I did. I– I can’t let you do that, steffy. I can’T. I can’t let you send me back to prison.

Bridget: I know steffy doesn’t want to risk facing addiction again. And yes, we’re always cautious, but in this case, we need to be even more so.

Sheila: Facing addiction or facing an overdose because that would solve all my problems. Wouldn’t it? What a shame. Knowing your former… struggle. You must have somehow got your hands on more meds. Be totally believable, wouldn’t it? No one would question. I never wanted it to come to this. An unfortunate end. But a necessary one.

[ Dramatic music ]

Thomas: So, steffy still doesn’t remember?

Ridge: No, she doesn’T.

Taylor: Steffy is trying her best, thomas. It’s going to be so hard on her when she remembers about finn.

Hope: Look, the longer that this goes on–

Brooke: Steffy can’t go on this way believing that she’s married to you, liam. You know, she’s becoming more and more emotionally dependent on you as the days go by.

Hope: But it’s not even that, mom. It’s the fact that she doesn’t even remember finn or that she shares the child with him.

Liam: Okay, listen. You know, I hear you guys, you’re preaching to the choir, and I’m concerned about hayes too. It’s just– from what taylor says, steffy is already regaining her strength. Right? So maybe her memories are not far behind.

Hope: But that could still take weeks or months or even years. We don’t know. Look, liam, if she’s going to find out that she isn’t married to you, then I do believe that you should be the one to tell her as gently and as sensitively as possible. But… steffy should know that you’re not her husband.

Brooke: We know it won’t be easy telling steffy. Knowing what this will do to her.

Hope: It will be a challenging time. But we are all committed to helping her through it.

Liam: No, no, no. I know. I get that. It’s just– like we all heard what taylor just said though, right?

Hope: But we also can’t let it go on forever. Liam, you aren’t married to her. And while letting her believe what she needs to believe right now might seem like the compassionate thing to do, it’s just delaying the inevitable. I truly believe that helping her come to terms with reality and working through that pain will be the kinder thing in the end. Plus, it might actually help her recall who shot finn and her.

Sheila: Why, steffy?

Why did you have to fight me?

Why couldn’t you just

let me be a part of your life?

I never meant for any of this

to happen. Finn is gone.

The son that I loved is dead

and now, now you’ve given me

no other choice.

Taylor: Sheila. How did olay top expensive creams?

Liam: Hey, I hear what you guys are saying, and it makes perfect sense. It’s just I’m thinking, like, if you’re coming from taylor’s–

Bridget: Sorry, am I interrupting?

Liam: No, no, no. Come, come.

Brooke: Maybe you could help. Hope and I are struggling with this plan that liam is supposed to play along with this idea that he is steffy’s husband.

Hope: And we know that you urge caution about telling the truth–

Bridget: Actually, I have just been reviewing steffy’s latest test results with neurology and everything is looking really good. She’s stable. She’s getting stronger. I think steffy can handle hearing the truth now.

Hope: Okay, that’s great. So, I mean, the longer this went on, it’s sort of been really hard to tell–

Ridge: Hey.

Liam: Hey, good timing.

Hope: Yeah, actually, we think that steffy is able to hear the truth that liam isn’t her husband.

Brooke: She’s getting stronger, so we don’t need to keep going on and on about this. Ridge, of course, there’s no pressure here. You and taylor should discuss it. Just as steffy’s doctor. I was just reviewing–

Thomas: Yeah, my mom is a doctor, too, her opinion–

Ridge: And she wants us to be catious, right?

Thomas: Yes. And for good reason. We shouldn’t rush into anything.

Liam: It’s not rushing. Nobody wants to do that. Nobody wants to put steffy’s recovery in jeopardy.

Hope: Well. If liam tells her, then we actually–

Thomas: Hold on, wait a second, why is liam telling her?

Ridge: Tell us.

Thomas: No, no, no, hold on. Look, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t tell her some of it, but– but– but about her husband and what happened to him. And that they have a child together and– look, you and mom should at least weigh in on this.

Liam: I agree with that. I didn’t– you and taylor should have this decision. I don’t want to overstep.

Ridge: I know you will tell her in the gentle, gentlest of ways, but we– this is concerning to us.

Hope: We are all concerned. We want– all of us want what’s best for steffy.

Ridge: You know what I want? I want to be there when you talk to her.

Sheila: I didn’t hear you come in. I’m sorry. I hope you don’t mind; I was just–

Taylor: I know what you’re doing. Sheila.

Sheila: You do?

Taylor: Yeah. Seeing steffy here, knowing that finn is gone, trying to make sense of how that’s even possible. But sheila, you have finn’s son, your grandson. We are so happy that steffy has regained consciousness. Soon, she’s going to remember who did this to her and finn. You want that too, don’t you? Hey, sweetie. How are you feeling?

Liam: Hey. How’s she doing?

Steffy: Much better now.

Thomas: What’s going on? Big brother in the house. Not going to get a hello.

Steffy: I’m glad you’re here. That all of you are here. I just don’t understand why you’re here.

Liam: So, steffy, the reason that sheila is here, is that she suffered a loss as well. We all have.

Taylor: Liam, what are– what are you doing?

Liam: Especially you.

Bridget: Taylor. I know how you feel, but after running all of her latest tests and consulting with the head of neurology and considering her progress, I– I do believe it’s time.

Taylor: I disagree. She’s still too fragile.

Steffy: Wait, for what? What’s going on? Liam, you’re my husband, you can tell me.

Liam: Yeah, uh… steffy, your memory– that– there are some things that you still can’t recall. And we all– we all feel like it’s– it’s our job now to help you fill in the blanks. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Hope: I hope I wasn’t being too demanding with liam because I don’t want him to think that I’m like being–

Brooke: No, no, no, no, no. Don’t worry. Liam understands why you feel the way you do. Besides, you heard bridget. Steffy is on her way back. And to carry on this illusion that she and liam are a married couple, that isn’t fair to anybody, especially to steffy. Bridget, is everything okay?

Hope: I mean, shouldn’t you be in there with them when they’re telling steffy?

Bridget: Oh, I’m close by if I’m needed, although I’m really hoping that I won’t be.

Brooke: How did taylor react when she found out what liam intended to do?

Bridget: Let’s just say she was not pleased.

Hope well, I’m sure you explained, right?

Bridget: Yeah, I told taylor exactly why I felt that it’s finally time.

Brooke: And I’m sure liam will be very gentle, very sensitive.

Hope: The entire family will be. No one wants steffy to suffer any more than she already has.

Bridget: Right. The reality is no one can protect her from what she’s about to hear.

Liam: Steffy, we are so grateful that you’re recovering. And look at you. You’re getting– you’re getting stronger and stronger every day.

Ridge: It’s what we hoped and prayed for.

Thomas: Yeah, you’re going to be up and around before you know it.

Liam: But there’s– there’s still some things that you have to know that you just haven’t been able to remember yet.

Steffy: That night, you mean? When I was shot?

Ridge: We’re going to find who did this to you. To both of you.

Steffy: Both? You said both of us.

Ridge: Yeah.

Liam: Um, there was someone else with you that night.

Steffy: I was with someone?

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. Finn. Dr. Jonathan finnegan. Does that sound familiar to you at all?

Taylor: Sweetie. He came into your life when you needed him most. An exceptional man.

Ridge: He saved your life.

Liam: Do you– do you remember that? Do you remember him at all?

Ridge: This, um… this is you and him.

Liam: I’m always going to love you and we do have a child together, kelly. But, you have another child. Hayes.

Steffy: What?

Liam: Beautiful little boy. A child that you share with finn.

Steffy: Hayes.

Liam: I’m not your husband. Steffy. You’re married to finn.

Steffy: Finn. Finn. Finn. Finn.

Liam: Yeah. Do you–

Steffy: I remember.

Liam: Do you remember?

Steffy: Yeah, I remember. Finn.

Taylor: That’s wonderful, sweetheart.

Steffy: My husband. My husband. Hayes, my son. My son. I want to see them. Please let me see them. If I go to sleep right now, I can get more….

Brooke: How are the kids?

Hope: Amelia says that they’re fine. Hayes is down for a nap, and she is putting together a puzzle with kelly too. Thankfully, they aren’t aware of what their mom is facing right now.

Bridget: Or what they’re about to face when they realize that finn is never coming home.

Hope: Kelly thought of him like a second dad and hayes, I mean, he’s so young, he’s barely had any time with him.

Brooke: Steffy will make sure that hayes knows how much finn loved him. And that finn would be here for him now if that were at all possible.

Hope: Only it’s not because some maniac with a gun went and– I just hope that steffy is able to identify whoever did this. And I get that it’s going to be horrific for her to relive. But the police barely have any leads, and without steffy’s help–

Bridget: Then the murderer could absolutely get away with this.

Brooke: Ridge will never let that happen. He’ll track down this criminal himself if he has to.

Hope: I just feel awful for steffy. She’s already been through hell and it’s not over yet.

Steffy: Finn and hayes. Where are they? When can I see them?

Ridge: Steffy–

Taylor: You have been through a very, very hard time and there are still some pieces that are– that are missing from that night.

Steffy: I just want to hold my son. I want to be with him and his daddy.

Liam: And we completely understand that. Just know for now that hayes is great. He’s in good hands.

Steffy: Good. Thank– thank you. So, hayes is at home with finn?

Thomas: Actually, hayes is with amelia right now.

Liam: Yeah, I’ve been, um… I’ve been going over the house to just kind of be with hayes and kelly, but usually he’s with amelia.

Steffy: When finn and i are at work?

Liam: Yeah, that’s right.

Steffy: Where is he now? Why isn’t finn here?

Ridge: I should be the one to tell you that you weren’t alone in that alley when you were shot.

Steffy: What are you saying, dad?

Ridge: Finn was there. He was brave and he was protecting you.

Taylor: He loved you so much, sweetheart.

Thomas: Yeah. Uh… finn was completely and totally devoted to you. To the very end.

Steffy: Loved. Very end. Why are you talking this way?

Taylor: I’m so sorry, sweetheart. Finn is gone.

Steffy: Gone?

Taylor: Yeah.

Ridge: He was shot that night and he didn’t survive.

Steffy: Finn’s gone? Finn’s gone.

Liam: I’m sorry, steffy.

Steffy: Why? What?

[ Dramatic music ]

Baker: So steffy, are you sure you’re up for this? You’re ready to pick up where we left off?

Steffy: I can try.

Baker: I know it’s a lot, but we’re hoping that today you can remember a little more about what happened that night you were shot.

Ridge: There’s no pressure. You can do this.

Baker: Now, you said that you’ve been having some memories. Do you remember who shot you?

Steffy: I’m starting to remember.

Taylor: Hi.

Liam: Hi. Any uh… any new information?

Taylor: Nope. But she is continuing to gain her strength.

Hope: Well, that’s good.

Brooke: What about her memory?

Taylor: Parts are still missing.

Liam: What about the part that lets her identify the shooter? Any luck there?

Hope: I mean, it’s scary to think that that person is still out there somewhere.

Brooke: Deputy chief baker and his team are excellent detectives. I can promise you, they will leave no stone unturned.

Liam: Well, they better not. I mean, they need to– to solve the case and put the shooter behind bars because that’s what finn deserves. That’s what steffy deserves.

Taylor: Yes, they do. They do. And we will stop at nothing to hold whoever did this accountable. But please, be patient. Okay? This is going to take a minute. Just don’t set your expectations too high. Steffy hasn’t been able to recall much of anything.

Brooke: Including who her husband is and isn’T.

Eric: Well, apparently no memories have resurfaced yet, but steffy is on the mend. She’s going to be all right. She’s regained consciousness. She’s gonna get better.

Quinn: That’s wonderful news, eric.

Eric: Yeah. It’s unbelievable. For steffy to be gunned down like that, like an animal. And finn… murdered in cold blood.

Quinn: It’S… horrific. And I– I can understand why you’ve been so distant lately. You know, it’S… you’ve a lot on your mind.

Carter: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt.

Eric: Carter. I guess you weren’t expecting to see me here.

Carter: Steffy has a lot of people rooting for her, eric.

Quinn: That’s for sure.

Carter: And we all miss having her around the office.

Eric: Oh, I miss her too. I’ve been working from home a lot lately, and I come in here today and I realize that she’s not here. You know, what can I say? I’m a proud, hopeful grandfather. I know she’s gonna recover physically from this. She’ll be back, but emotionally, I worry. When her memory comes back and she realizes what’s happened and finn is gone and… but we’ll all be there to help her, won’t we?

Taylor: Steffy just regained consciousness yesterday. She’s in a– she’s in a very, very fragile state.

Hope: And– I mean, we all understand that, and we all want her to get better just as much as you do.

Brooke: But, do you really think it’s wise to let her think that finn never existed?

Taylor: Oh, well, that’s– that’s not what we’re doing.

Brooke: Steffy believes that she’s married to liam and that she only has one child.

Taylor: That’s right, brooke. Because my daughter is recovering trauma induced memory loss. Now, god willing, it’s only temporary, but we can’t force steffy to conjure up painful memories just because we think she’s ready. That could have damaging, long term consequences.

Baker: Can you give us anything about who put you here? Was it a male? A female?

Ridge: You’re in the alley. It’s dark. See anything? A face?

Steffy: Why? Why do I see… sheila?

And it’s easier than ever to get

your projects done right .

Eric: I have complete faith that steffy will get back on her feet.

Quinn: Well, we’ve all been praying for her, eric.

Carter: And we’ll continue to do so until she’s completely recovered.

Eric: Thank you. I have an appointment. I’ve gotta go.

Quinn: You do?

Eric: Yes. I’ll see you tonight, later. Okay?

Quinn: Okay, yeah. Looking forward to it. Poor eric.

[ Quinn sighing ] I think steffy’s shooting is really taking a toll on him.

Carter: Yeah, I can’t imagine how anxious he must be.

Quinn: Yeah, yeah. Well, he’s been in constant contact with ridge and with bridget, but I– I– I think it’s affecting him a lot more than he’s letting on. At least, I assume so, which is why he took off the way he did.

Carter: Quinn, what’s going on?

Quinn: Well, you know that eric and I have been working on our relationship and– and, I think we’ve been doing really– really well. You know, we found some solid ground. But, who knows? Maybe I’m kidding myself. Maybe my marriage is… is never gonna be the same after my affair with you.

Taylor: You know that I’m not going to risk my daughter’s health to ease your concerns, right?

Brooke: Taylor, I don’t want steffy to experience any setbacks either, but eventually, she is going to have to accept reality.

Taylor: And eventually, she will. But right now, the reality is that steffy doesn’t have the emotional capability to even understand and process what happened that awful night. She is experiencing a dissociative response to trauma.

Hope: We all get that. Liam is bringing steffy peace and comfort right now and that is fine, but at what point in letting that go on does it become a detriment to her recovery, to the kids, to hayes?

Brooke: How long are you going to keep hiding the truth from your daughter?

Taylor: As long as it takes for her to remember everything safely.

Liam: O– okay. All right. We’re all a little on edge here. Obviously, this is a very stressful, very– very complex, a very surprising chain of events and none of us anticipated it.

Brooke: That’s for sure.

Liam: And– and at some point, steffy is going to regain her memory, okay? And when that happens, she’s gonna have… she’s gonna have a lot to grieve. But, in the mean time, I’m just, I– what I want is for her to be able to identify who it was that shot her and finn.

Ridge: Sheila, what about her?

Steffy: Her face.

[ Sheila’s heart beating ] She was here the other day. I don’t want her here. What she’s done to our family.

Ridge: You need to go. Now.

Sheila: Of course. Fine. I– I don’t want to upset her. Steffy, I’m really so sorry, more than you’ll ever know.

Steffy: Seriously, dad, what is she doing back in our lives?

Ridge: We’ll get to all of that. We’ll explain all of that. Right now, you need to focus. Try to recreate what happened that night in the alley. It’s dark. What do you see? Do you see anything?

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: I’m trying.

Baker: What about their clothing or hair color?

Ridge: Anything at all. Anything to find this guy.

Steffy: I can’t, I can’T.

Ridge: Okay.

Steffy: I’m sorry, dad.

Ridge: It’s all right. Don’t be sorry. It’s all right. Take a break. We’re gonna take a break. You just rest. You did a great job, kiddo. Her mind is still a blank.

Baker: She just needs a little more time. I’ll come back later. Try again.

Baker: Ms. Carter. I’d like to speak with you for a moment. And tonight’s winning numbers are 18,

Quinn: I really believed eric would be able to move past our affair.

Carter: Quinn, anyone can see how much your husband loves you. Never forget that, all right? Eric, he’s just… he has a lot on his plate with steffy in the hospital.

Quinn: I know that.

Carter: And not only that, but everything that brooke and ridge are dealing with and how eric’s affected by it?

Quinn: I know, I know. He’S… I just, I don’t know. What if… what if my husband is never going to be able to love me or trust me the way he used to.

Brooke: Now that we can talk privately, I mean, you have to understand how absurd this plan is, liam. Steffy can’t go on thinking that you’re her husband.

Steffy: I felt like I was getting close.

Ridge: It’ll come to you.

Steffy: All I can see is shadows. But nothing’s clear. It’s just… darkness. It all seems so hazy.

Taylor: Hey, cutie. How are you feeling?

Steffy: Frustrated.

Taylor: Why?

Ridge: Baker was here asking more questions.

Steffy: Thought I was making progress, but all I’m getting is just these… fuzzy images.

Taylor: Honey, fuzzy images are more than you had yesterday. That’s progress.

Steffy: But I’m not sure if it’S… if it’s real or am I just… creating a memory from what you and chief baker told me. All I know is I just wanna catch this person. They’re out there and they’re dangerous and… I don’t want them to hurt anyone else.

Taylor: You’re going to remember when you’re ready, okay?

Ridge: Your mother’s right. You will remember and when you do, we’re gonna put that person away forever.

Sheila: You want to talk to me?

Baker: I’m well aware of your criminal past with the forresters. Quite frankly, I find it remarkable that they allow you anywhere near them.

Sheila: My son is dead, deputy chief baker, and I am finn’s birth mother.

Baker: I realize that. And I am sorry for your loss.

Sheila: It’s a mother’s worst nightmare. To think that my son took his last breath in the middle of an alley that he was never even supposed to be in in the first place. Finn was not supposed to be there. He’d be alive. He’d be with me and my grandson. I’m devastated that he’s gone. I’m– you– uh… if you don’t have anymore questions, I could just really use a moment.

Baker: Oh, no, no. I’m done now. Um… but I would like to speak with you later in the future. Ms. Carter, please think. Is there anyone you could think of who would shoot your son and steffy forrester. Hi, I’m karen.

Brooke: I understand we need to be careful and sensitive to steffy’s mental state, but this situation is not sustainable. Steffy needs to know the facts. That finn is her husband and he was tragically taken from her during the shooting. And that he was taken from hayes, his son. A son that she has no recollection of. She’s not even aware that he exists.

Hope: That poor boy does need his mother. And yes, hayes has all of us, but…

Brooke: How long are we expected to play along?

Hope: I do think that deep down, steffy would want to know and… I think you know that as well as I do.

Brooke: She needs to be informed and somebody needs to tell her.

Hope: Well, if anyone is going to tell her, I think it should be–

Liam: Ridge.

Hope: You, liam.

Liam: Me?

Hope: You should be the one to tell her that you’re not her husband.

Taylor: No one’s going to force you to remember anything. You just– you just need to focus on letting us take care of you and healing. The rest will fall into place.

Steffy: I wanna get back home. Back to normal.

Ridge: Um, you will. You’re getting better every day. Everyone’s impressed how quickly you’re bouncing back.

Taylor: We’re just so grateful that you’re still with us, steffy. We… we almost lost you. You’re such a fighter. I have a feeling you’ll be walking out of here before you know it.

Steffy: I just want to get home. Back to kelly and liam. They’re the reason I keep fighting.

Taylor: I know. Why don’t you get some rest, sweetie? Love you.

Ridge: We’ll be right outside if you need us. I’m worried about her. She remembers some things, but nothing about finn and hayes?

Taylor: I know.

Ridge: So, how– how– how long do we wait? How long before she remembers everything?

Taylor: Everything? I– that’s really hard to say. But, we need to be patient, okay?

Ridge: Yep. It’s a long day, huh? Let me buy you some coffee.

Taylor: Let’s do it.

Ridge: Come on.

[ Intense music ]

Steffy: You hurt people to get what you want. You hurt brooke to have access to finn and hayes. Access you’re never gonna have. Everyone’s gonna know what you did, sheila. Everyone’s gonna know the truth. Finn is my husband. Hayes is my son. I’m in control. So, know when to give up.

Sheila: No!

Steffy: You shot your son. We need to get help.

Sheila: I didn’t even know he was here.

Steffy: Well, you’re going to prison for the rest of your life.

Sheila: Put it down, now!

Steffy: I feel so good. Close to my family again.

Kelly: I missed you, mommy.

Steffy: I miss you, too, baby girl. And I miss my husband. I’ll never be away from you. Ever again. I promise.

Taylor: So– so you think that I am driving a wedge between hope and liam?

Brooke: It’s possible. Instead of telling steffy the truth, you’re supporting this illusion that she’s married to liam. So maybe you are taking advantage of her memory loss.

Taylor: No. Steffy’s mental state is very fragile, and I’m not going to condone anything that will affect that.

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: Wouldn’t telling her to do just the opposite? She would realize that she has a little baby boy that lost his father. And she would want to be there. She would want to accept the truth in order to help her son.

> >Taylor: I am not risking my daughter’s recovery, brooke. Do you understand me? And the fact that you would even think that I would use my daughter’s memory loss to play matchmaker with her and liam is appalling. Even for you.

Ridge: You know what, sheila? There’s no reason for you to be here. I know you got to be exhausted. This was a rough day for everybody.

Sheila: Yeah, I’m the only one here that lost a son.

Ridge: You, li and jack. I loved finn. He didn’t– he didn’t deserve what happened to him. You being here doesn’t change that. Go home. Get some rest. When we find out who did this, and we will, you will be my first phone call.

Sheila: I’m not surprised you don’t want me here. You’ve never had any use for me. I mean, even… even after saving taylor’s life, that doesn’t buy me any slack or compassion.

Ridge: Slack or compassion? No. I’m grateful you saved her. But really, the only reason she was on that roof because you were there, trying to end your life.

Sheila: I just wish she hadn’t got there in time.

Ridge: Don’t do that. I don’t– I don’t want that for you. That’s not– I am sorry you lost your son. And I’m sorry you thought that the only way out of that dark place was to jump off a building. I can only imagine what kind of demons you have running around your head, that lead you to a place like that.

Brooke: Okay. I am… I’m sorry. I don’t want to argue with you, taylor.

Taylor: Good. Then stop.

Brooke: I’m sorry for everything you’re going through. And as a mother, I sympathize. But what I don’t understand is how you can continue to let your daughter believe she’s living in this fantasy world, being married to liam. I mean, really, it’s ridiculous. It’s– it’s wrong. It’s wrong.

Steffy: This is everything right here. Bridget: Hey, honey.

Hope: Hey.

Bridget: How are you?

Hope: Oh, hanging in there.

Bridget: Oh, I love you so much.

Hope: I love you too.

Bridget: I’m really, really proud of you.

Bridget: Oh, it’s a full house in here.

[ Liam laughing ]

Kelly: It’s mommy’s favorite.

Steffy: Daddy’s too.

Liam: Yeah.

Bridget: Well, I hate to break this up, but I need to examine your mommy, and she needs to get some rest.

Liam: Say no more.

Steffy: No, no. Don’t move.

Liam: You heard her. Doctor’s orders. Come on, kid. Let’s get out of here. Oh. Oh, boy. Look at you. Thanks again.

Bridget: You know I’m going to take good care of her.

Liam: I know. I have no doubt in my mind. Say goodbye to aunty bridget.

Kelly: Bye, aunt bridget.

Bridget: Bye sweet girl. I’ll see you soon.

Liam: All right. Now tell mommy you love her.

Kelly: I love you, mommy.

Steffy: I love you too, baby. I’ll be home soon. We’ll be together again. Okay? I promise.

Brooke: I’m not being unsympathetic. I am not. It’s just… I can imagine everything that she’s been through is just… such a shock and horror. And for you, too, taylor. But I don’t see how letting her believe a lie is helpful.

Taylor: Steffy needs a buffer between regaining consciousness and experiencing life without finn.

Brooke: Okay. Let that be you, the mental health expert. You’re a professional. You can help her see the truth and accept it. I really don’t think that’s fair to put on hope and liam. It’s too much of a burden. Honey. What’s wrong?

Taylor: Is it steffy?

Hope: Ah. No, she’s fine. More than fine. Actually.

Taylor: I’m sorry. What is– what does that mean?

Hope: Oh, no. She’s just having some family time with her daughter and her husband. My husband.

[ Steffy groaning ]

Bridget: Hey, honey, talk to me. How is your pain level?

Steffy: Nothing I can’t handle.

Bridget: How about your head? You seemed a little anxious today.

Steffy: I shouldn’t be here.

Bridget: Steffy. You’re recovering from a gunshot wound. It was a big day. You got to see kelly. You just– you need to rest.

>>Steffy: I can heal faster… at home with my husband and my daughter.

Ridge: I know. I know you had high hopes to be connected with your long lost son. And just like that– one moment and it’s all gone. And I’m sorry. And– and I hope you are going to get… the help that you need, from anyone. Anyone but taylor.

Sheila: Wait. Why do you even care what happens?

Ridge: I don’t care what happens to you. I really don’T. But I want you to be alive. I want you to be here, when we find whoever did this to our kids. And we’re going to bring them to justice.

Baker: Oh, there you are.

Ridge: Any news?

Sheila: Did you find who shot my son?

Baker: Not yet, but we’re on it. I wanted to talk to steffy earlier, but the doctor said she wasn’t ready. I’m hoping that she’s ready now. Steffy’s the only witness that we have of what happened in that alley. So, the sooner I can talk to her, the sooner we can catch this scumbag.

Ridge: Okay, well, there’s a couple of things you need to know. Steffy has a bit of a tough time… remembering everything. Finn.

Baker: Oh. That he was killed?

Ridge: That they were married. That… they met, even.

Baker: I’m not a doctor, but it’s obvious she’s repressing memory.

Ridge: Well, I’m not a doctor either, but… I don’t think we’re going to get out of her what we wanted.

Baker: Well, maybe not. But you never know what could come up in the course of an interview.

Ridge: I know what’s not going to come up. Finn. We’re not going to talk about him. Not now. You need to honor that.

Baker: It might take some finessing. But I’ve dealt with victims who have had repressed memories before. Nine times out of ten, all you need is patience. Eventually, those memories resurface. And the perp will be caught. Hi, I’m karen.

Brooke: Kelly’s here? In the hospital? With liam?

Hope: Yeah.

Taylor: That’s okay, though, right? Steffy would want to see her daughter.

Hope: Yes. I just hope it’s not confusing for kelly.

Taylor: Be confusing to see your parents together?

Hope: Finn just came into her life as her mommy’s husband. And now, all of a sudden, he’s gone and she’s in a hospital and steffy is calling liam her husband.

Liam: Hey.

Brooke: Where’s kelly?

Liam: She’s with amelia.

Hope: She’s doing okay?

Liam: I think she’s– yeah, I think she’s okay.

Brooke: You think?

Liam: Well–

Hope: She’s not confused about being here.

Liam: I mean, maybe… a little. But she’d probably be more confused at home, just not even knowing where mommy is. At least here, she was able to see that steffy is okay.

Hope: Oh, I’m glad to hear that.

Brooke: Yeah, I’m glad to hear that, too. But I still have major issues allowing steffy to believe that liam is still her husband.

Liam: Believe me, I hear you. I totally get it. This whole situation is so– like, I don’t even know what to– and you. Your patience and understanding is, like, superhuman at this point, so–

Hope: Yeah. But I’m going to be honest, liam. It is a little weird to see steffy thinking that she’s still married to you.

[ Brooke huffing ]

Brooke: See? This is taking a toll on my daughter. Somebody has to tell steffy the truth.

Taylor: Absolutely not. I’m sorry, did you say it was taking a toll on your daughter these last few hours? Steffy just regaining consciousness. She was shot. Her husband died. I’m so sorry if this is too much for you. I want you to hear me very clearly right now. Nobody is going to undermine my daughter’s recovery. Do you understand?

Bridget: Your body has been through a lot. You were shot and then unconscious, while you fought to survive.

Steffy: Will I be okay?

Bridget: You are doing great. Physically, you’re on the road to recovery. I’m so proud of you. Of course, there’s always… unforeseen complications. But I am optimistic you’re not going to have any setbacks.

Steffy: Sooner, I’ll… be better? How long, again?

Bridget: Just as long as it takes.

Steffy: I want to be home with my husband and my daughter.

Bridget: I’m sure they will be back to see you soon.

Steffy: All I want is the three of us together. And then I’ll feel better.

Bridget: Let’s just take it one step at a time. Okay, honey?

Ridge: Bridget. Hey, how’s she doing?

Bridget: She’s getting stronger all the time.

Ridge: Told you. [Indistinct]

Baker: Is it okay if I ask her a few questions?

Bridget: Ask our patient. Steffy?

Steffy: I guess. Yeah.

Bridget: Go easy on her.

Ridge: I’ll make sure of it.

Baker: Well. It’s good to see you awake.

Steffy: Thanks.

Ridge: While he’s here, the chief wants to ask you a few questions, and I told him you’re not 100%. So, if you are not feeling it, we will do it some other time.

Baker: Absolutely. But I really need your insight into what happened that night in the alley. So that we can find the person responsible for shooting you.

Steffy: I’ll do my best.

[ Sheila’s heart beating ]

Liam: I promise you, taylor. None of us want steffy to backslide. We all care about her so much.

Taylor: Oh, I know. I know you do. I don’t think you understand. Steffy– steffy cannot– cannot process what happened that night. She– she can’t do it. She’s– she’s latching on to her history with liam to try to deal with the reality of finn’s murder. Do you understand that?

Hope: We get that. But if her memory doesn’t sort itself out on its own, my mom has a point. I mean, what am I supposed to do? Go on for years and years with steffy thinking she’s married to my husband? That’s ludicrous. Something has to help her remember that she was married to finn and they share a child. A little boy who needs his mother. It is unsustainable. Surely you realize that, taylor?

Taylor: Of course I do. And– steffy– steffy, just woke up. This is all new. Just give her a second. It’s just happened. And maybe right now all she can do is heal her body. I don’t know. Maybe there’s a physical reason why she’s blocking finn out. But either way, she– she’s unable to cope with what happened. But her memory will come back, when she’s ready. But there is… nothing that anyone is going to do to cause her to have a setback. And that’s just the way it is.

Bridget: Mom. Hello, everyone.

Brooke: Go ahead, honey. We need you. We need a second professional opinion. And you understand steffy’s condition better than any of us. So, tell us, please. Do you think steffy is too fragile to handle the truth right now? That she isn’t married to liam?

Bridget: Mom, it is my opinion and that of steffy’s neurologist that it would be best if she remembered on her own. We just need to give her a little bit more time.

Liam: Okay. Can you hang in there a little bit longer?

Hope: Hmm. Yeah, sure.

Brooke: Okay. Well, how much time is a little more time?

Bridget: It could be happening right now. Deputy chief baker is in there with steffy and ridge. He’s questioning her about that night. Maybe he’s touching on something that will help her remember that finn is dead. And maybe even who killed him and shot her.

Baker: You’ve been through a very challenging time. I’ll try not to add to that.

Steffy: I wanna– I wanna help.

Ridge: We know that. We will find out who did this to you.

Baker: Every available resource in my office is on this case. We won’t stop until we find and arrest this perp. I want you to take your time, okay? Think back to the night in question. You’re standing in the alley behind ii giardino. That strikes me as odd. Do you know why you were there?

Steffy: Something urgent.

Baker: You remember what?

Steffy: No.

Baker: All right, so you’re in the alley. Were you with anyone?

Steffy: No.

Baker: What? Are you– are you remembering something? Someone? Are the memories coming? Good. Good. Let the memories come.

Ridge: Hey. You’re safe. No one’s gonna hurt you.

Baker: Can you see a face?

Ridge: What do you remember? Who shot you?

Liam: Hey. Everything’s going to be okay. You have nothing to be afraid of.

Steffy: I am. I don’t know what happened. I was shot? Ah, I don’t remember–

Liam: I know. Yeah, I know. That’s okay. Your– your memory’s a– a little fuzzy, but what’s important is that you’re safe and your family’s here.

Steffy: Family?

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: My husband. I just need you with me.

Liam: Yeah, you– I’m– you got me. I’m here. I’m not going anywhere. Everybody here, they just want you to get better. And we’re going to do everything we can so that you can go home and you can move on with your life. Okay?

Steffy: Hmm. Go home together. The two of us. Kelly. Our daughter! I want to see her!

Brooke: So, steffy thinks liam is her husband. Like she’s gone back in time. That’s not just a memory problem.

Taylor: It’s a coping mechanism.

Brooke: Coping with what? She doesn’t even remember finn, or their child.

Taylor: Because it’s too painful for her, brooke. She doesn’t have the emotional resources to deal with finn’s death.

Sheila: I wish I could forget it.

Brooke: Look, I don’t want to interfere with steffy’s progress and her healing. It’s just that she’s calling liam her husband.

Ridge: That’s what bridget said, she’s confused.

Taylor: Yes. And she’s– she’s very fragile right now.

Brooke: Okay. So, we go on letting her believe that she is married to liam, not hope.

Ridge: I get your concern, brooke. But if steffy isn’t strong enough to deal with the situation, we need to let her heal. We need to let her do that.

Liam: You remember kelly?

Steffy: I miss her.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. She misses you.

Steffy: I want… I want our family together. Home, just the three of us.

Liam: Just the three. Um, I just… I don’t know if that’s the best idea right now.

Steffy: Please, please, get kelly. Get her. I want to see her.

Liam: I– I– steffy, okay. All right. You know what? You got it? I– I will, um… I will go get kelly. I’ll bring her here. But, steffy, you got to– you got to take it easy. You’re awake now and that is like– that is just a– a miracle. But you have a long way to go. And bridget says that we shouldn’t be rushing things. Okay?

Steffy: I need our daughter.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I’m gonna– I– I’ll be right back. I’ll bring her.

Liam: Hey.

Hope: Hey.

Liam: So, um… steffy wants to see kelly.

Hope: Did she mention finn or hayes at all?

Liam: No, nope. Nope. So, I– I don’t know. I mean, I’m just assuming it– it is what bridget and taylor said, that she’s repressing the memory of finn and everything that goes along with it.

Hope: Even their child?

Liam: Yeah. ‘Cause it’s like nothing, you know? I mean, I– but seeing kelly’s got to be a good thing, right? Like, ’cause maybe making that connection will ground her a little bit. Help her make the other connection. I don’t know. I’m trying to do the right thing, and it’s like…

Hope: Liam, hey. We all want what’s best for steffy. Okay?

Liam: See? The– that– that right there. Oh, my– I’m so grateful to you. You– you are being so compassionate. You are being so understanding. You’re taking care of the kids. You’re giving steffy your support. And I just– I could just thank– thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Ugh, okay.

Hope: All right.

Liam: Wish me luck. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Brooke: Of course steffy needs time to recover. I– I… I’m not suggesting we barge in there and tell her all about finn. That would be a disaster.

Taylor: Oh, good. I’m glad you’re not suggesting that ’cause that’s what it sounds like. Yes, it would be disastrous.

Brooke: To let her live in this delusional world doesn’t help either. What about– what about hayes? His father died. He needs his mother.

Taylor: Yes, he does. And we are doing everything that we can to make sure she gets back to him as soon as possible.

Ridge: She just woke up and she’s lost some things. Give her a chance to find them, please.

Taylor: Selective memory loss is– is a survival reaction. It helps people deal with the unthinkable. And I think on some levels, steffy knows finn died. My god, I think she might have even seen it happen. Which would explain this response.

Brooke: Okay, well, I… I– I’m just concerned about her fixation on liam.

Ridge: God, it’s nothing to do with liam. Honestly, I’m not a doctor, but it– it seems to me that this is about finn and how much she loved him.

Sheila: And she did. Deeply.

Taylor: Steffy just can’t process this right now so she’s– she blocked it all out. She had to find a– a safe place in her mind and right now, that safe place is liam.

Hope: Excuse me. Is it okay if I see her? I– I won’t stay long.

Nurse: Of course. I’ll be back soon.

Hope: Thank you. Hey, steffy.

Steffy: Hope.

Hope: It’s good to see you awake. How are you feeling?

Steffy: Better.

Hope: You gave us quite a scare there.

Steffy: You were worried?

Hope: Very. Does that surprise you?

Steffy: We don’t always get along. It’s kind of you to visit.

Hope: Bridget’s taking excellent care of you and… I’m sure you’re going to get through this.

Steffy: I just want to go home. With kelly and liam. Our little family.

Hope: Steffy, I know you have this reputation of being fearless and brave, and I just– I want you to know that it’s okay. You can be strong and still scared. But you can face this. I know– I know you can. I just have one… important thing to tell you.

Ridge: We all know that liam is married to hope.

Brooke: Steffy doesn’T.

Ridge: Oh, she will. Soon enough, but not right now.

Brooke: So, if you can be patient and just give her whatever she needs to heal, that would be great.

Sheila: Taylor, are– are you certain that she will?

Taylor: Well, her scans don’t show any significant damage, I… it looks like the– the memory loss might be psychological.

Brooke: Well, then tell me, taylor. How is living in this fantasy helping her?

Taylor: What? This is so much more complicated than a fantasy, brooke. There are real emotions involved here. That is why she sought safety with liam.

Brooke: Liam was there when she came to.

Taylor: Liam has always been there for her.

Brooke: Yes. They share a lot of history together.

Taylor: Yes, their connection is real, brooke. They have a deep, abiding love for each other. As a psychiatrist, it makes me wonder.

Brooke: Wonder what?

Taylor: If there’s more to it. If maybe this is a sign that… steffy is repressing her true love for liam.

[ Ridge sighs ]

Hope: I know that you’re confused and things are a little foggy right now.

Steffy: Hard to remember. I’ve been trying.

Hope: So, you don’t remember anything about that night? What about before?

Steffy: I remember my home. And my family. Liam. Kelly.

Hope: Well, that’s actually what I need you to know. Your family is so much bigger than that. And you’ll never be alone. You won’T. So, you don’t need to worry, because… we’ve got your back and we’re here for you. And we’re going to help you get through this. We’re going to support you.

Steffy: I know. Liam said he won’t leave me.

Hope: Yeah. He, um– he’ll be there for you and so will I. So– we all will. And someday those memories will come back and then you can truly move on.

Steffy: I just need my little girl. And my husband. My precious family.

Kelly: Mommy!

Steffy: There she…

Liam: Hey.

Steffy: … Is? You got… so big!

Liam: Yeah, yeah. Here, go, go, go. Go to mommy.

Kelly: Mommy!

Steffy: Oh…

Liam: Yeah, yeah, you be gentle with mommy, good.

Steffy: Oh, my… my sweet baby. Oh, my goodness.

Liam: Yeah, so, um– so– so we had a really great conversation in the car. Um, kelly knows that– that mommy is just fine. And auntie bridget is taking such, such good care of her. And, uh, before you know it, she’s gonna be home and back to her old self, huh?

Steffy: Oh, yes, soon as I can, baby. I can’t wait to be home with our family. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Steffy: You said you put

your devious ways behind you–

Sheila: I have.

Steffy: No, you haven’t!

You are the same twisted

sociopath you have always been.

You don’t change, sheila.

You just find new

ways to hurt people.

There’s no hope for you.

You’re never getting better.

Everyone’s gonna know what

you did. Everyone. Everyone…


Ridge: I thought you left.

Sheila: Uh, not yet.

Ridge: Maybe you should. You know what? I’m sorry. Here’s what I’ll do. As soon as steffy remembers something, I will let you know.

Brooke: You said that steffy’s reaction is a survival mechanism.

Taylor: It is, but it’s not random. She latched on to solace with liam.

Brooke: Taylor, I don’t know how avoiding the subject is helping. And I don’t know why that doesn’t worry you.

Taylor: Are you questioning my concern?

Brooke: No, I just don’t know why you want to leave her in the dark. Maybe she needs to be with her son. Or what about if somebody comes to visit? What are you gonna tell them? Don’t mention finn? I mean, come on. I know that you don’t want her recovery to have any setbacks, I get that. But this is crazy.

Taylor: No, this is crazy. That you’re not seeing this. We– we didn’t put any of this in steffy’s head. Steffy has– has– has blocked out all of her memories of finn and she’s turned to liam. Taking that away from her would be devastating for her recovery. It is too soon and it is too dangerous. I will not allow it.

Brooke: Don’t do this. Don’t make this an issue for us.

Taylor: I’m not the one making it an issue, brooke.

Brooke: Really? You’re not using this situation to drive a wedge between hope and liam? Because I think you are.

Steffy: I’m so glad to see you, baby girl.

Kelly: Why are you crying?

[ Liam laughs softly ]

Steffy: They’re happy tears. I missed you so much.

Liam: And kelly missed you, too. And you know what? She drew you so many pictures and wrote you letters. And we’re going to hang them up all over the house when you get home just to welcome you. And, um… um, we don’t know exactly when that’s gonna be, but hopefully– hopefully soon.

Steffy: Oh, I can’t wait to get home and see them.

Liam: Yeah. I did explain to kelly that, um, mommy does need to stay in the hospital just a little bit longer so she can rest and get better, you know?

Steffy: I feel better now with all these cuddles.

Hope: It’s definitely seemed like it’s helped your mood.

Steffy: Please, I, uh… I’d like some time alone with my daughter and my… my husband.

Hope: So, you’d like me to go?

Liam: Um, I’ll– I’ll be out there in a– in a minute.

Steffy: Thank you for being here. So nice to have my daughter by my side. To have you by my side.

Liam: There’s no place I’d rather be.

Kelly: I love you, mommy.

Steffy: I love you. And I love you too, liam.

Liam: I love you, too.

Steffy: Thank god. My sweet husband.

Hope: Liam’s my husband, mom, I’m not worried.

Brooke: I’m not saying you should be, sweetheart, but situations like this. Steffy’s husband died, tragically.

Hope: Which steffy still knows nothing about. Mom, she remembers nothing about that night.

Brooke: But when she does, when she starts to remember everything.

Hope: Everyone that loves her will be there to help her through it.

Brooke: Including liam?

Hope: Yes, including liam. That’s the way it should be.

Steff: I need you.

Bridget: I’ve dealt with cases where the trauma of the event was so devastating, the patient blocks it out entirely.

Taylor: Yeah, I’ve dealt with that in my practice too. When it’s your own daughter?

Bridget: I know. On one hand, you wish you could just never tell her what happened. Spare her all that heartache and pain. But the reality is–

Taylor: Finn is gone.

Bridget: Right.

Taylor: Someone took him from us, from everybody that loved him. My daughter, most of all. I just– I just keep wondering if she’s ever going to remember what happened. I–

Carter: What did you say?

Quinn: Oh, come on. Don’t pretend you didn’t hear me.

Carter: I don’t know. You whispered– I don’t– I don’t know if I got that.

Quinn: Wh– okay, so. Fine. So you need me to say it louder? Is that it? I need to be– I need to be louder. Fine! I miss you, too.

[ Sighing ]

Carter: I’ll try not to let it go to my head.

Quinn: Well… you said at first, mr.

Carter: That I miss you? It’s true.

Quinn: And your involvement with paris?

Carter: I did what had to be done, I ended it.

Quinn: For her sake?

Carter: Yes, for her sake. She’d be much happier with zende. He can give her everything she deserves, and more.

Quinn: I don’t disagree with that. But now that things are over with paris, and I mean, they are over, right?

Carter: Yes, they are over.

Quinn: I am so glad to hear that.

Bridget: Well, obviously, you know, we’re going to continue to monitor steffy very closely. And I don’t have to tell you that we need to proceed cautiously. But ridge has really been trying to get steffy to remember who did this to finn and her. And I understand why. But I–

Taylor: But we can’t thrust the horror of what happened to her. She’s– she’s too weak, physically and emotionally.

Bridget: Exactly. I’m really relieved to hear you say that. I’m glad we agree. I’m going to go check on her. Okay?

Taylor: Thank you.

Brooke: Oh, sweetheart, I– I’m not trying to make you feel insecure or question liam’s feelings for steffy–

Hope: Mom, look, liam loves steffy, and he has always been honest with me about that and himself. They share a daughter together, and their love for kelly bonds them together the same way that liam and I– we have a daughter that we thought was lost to us. And now we have a wonderful family. And liam’s ring is on my finger. Not steffy’S.

Steffy: You mean so much to me. My husband by my side.

Bridget: What’s going on?

Steffy: Telling him how much I need him. How much I need my husband. Oh, man, that’s a whole lot of wrinkly.

Carter: So you’re glad that paris and I are over?

[ Quinn scoffing ]

Quinn: For all the obvious reasons. Your relationship with zende, your relationship with the forresters, uh, oh, uh, not to mention the little fact that that woman tried to blow up my life. What happened between us almost caused irreparable damage between you and ridge, you and eric. And now, if they were to– they were to find out that you were doing an end run around zende, trying to lure poor, sweet paris into your love nest?

Carter: Wow. Poor paris into my love nest? That is not what’s happening–

Quinn: I am sure that you didn’t do the luring. I’m sure that it was– it was mutual. And the two of you couldn’t fight your attraction to each other. Why? Why does that sound so familiar?

Carter: You talking about you and me?

Quinn: What happened between us, it’s in the past.

Carter: Mm hm.

Quinn: But I have to admit that I– I do, I do miss– I do miss our talks. The way we used to confide in each other. I don’t have a lot of friends. I know– surprise, surprise, but, um, there’s definitely been a void in my life since– since you and I stopped spending time with each other.

Hope: I’m lucky, mom. I have my husband. You– liam is safe. My family is safe. Our lives didn’t change in the blink of an eye.

Brooke: So many blessings to count.

Hope: Whereas steffy’s world will never be the same. Frankly, I mean– who could blame her if she never wants to remember th– that horrific night ever again? And if she does recall those awful moments, then– how does she handle that? I mean, how do you hear that your husband is gone and never coming back?

Taylor: Oh, honey, I know. I know you want to be here at the hospital, but douglas needs you there too. No, babe, just– just help him with his homework, and I’ll call you if anything changes. All right? Okay. I love you, too. Bye. Hi.

Sheila: Hey. I’m sorry, I didn’t– I didn’t mean to interrupt your phone call.

Taylor: No, it’s okay. I was just, uh, I needed to check in on thomas. Let him know what was going on.

Sheila: How’s– how’s steffy? I gather she’s still not remembering anything?

Taylor: No. No, not as far as that night is concerned. Everything is just a– it’s a blank for her. Oh, I’m so sorry, sheila. I know you are as anxious for steffy to remember what happened so she can tell us who did this as we are. But I promise you, we’re– we’re going to find out who did this. And we are going to put them behind bars for the rest of their lives. Come here.

Bridget: Very grateful to have your husband here with you, steffy?

Steffy: Yes. I knew liam would come.

Bridget: Honey? Do you remember anything else about that night?

Steffy: No. No. I’m trying, but…

Bridget: I think we need to give steffy some rest.

Steffy: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I wa– I want my husband here. I– I don’t want liam to leave me. No, no–

Liam: No, I’m– hey, hey! Listen, listen, listen. I’m not leaving you. I’m not leaving you. I’m– you see those doors? I’m gonna be right outside those doors. I’m not going anywhere. Okay?

Steffy: Thank you. Thank you. I love you. I love you so much.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah.

[ Sniffling ] I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo

Carter: A void?

Quinn: I– nobody understands me the way that you do.

Carter: Even eric?

Quinn: Don’t get me wrong, I’m– I’m very happy to be back with my husband.

Carter: But?

Quinn: He’s been spending a lot of time working from home. Specifically the guest house, and, uh– he sleeps there quite often.

Carter: Is there A… is there still a problem?

Quinn: I love eric. He’s my husband. And I’m committed to him.

Carter: And I get that. But you still didn’t answer my question. Is there still a problem in your marriage, something going on that you can’t talk about, even with me?

Brooke: Sheila, ah. I didn’t expect you to be here. Is everything all right, taylor?

Taylor: Yep.

Sheila: I think what brooke really means to say is I don’t belong here.

Taylor: Well, of course you belong here. You’re hayes’ grandmother. You just lost your son. And you’re worried about finn’s little boy.

Sheila: And finn’s wife. I’m also concerned about steffy.

[ Hope clearing throat ]

Taylor: Oh, ridge, how’s steffy?

Ridge: Uh, well–

Hope: Has she remembered anything more?

Taylor: What is going on?

Ridge: You– you wanna…

Taylor: What’s going on?

Liam: So…

Taylor: Did my daughter take a turn for the worse?

Bridget: No, no, no. Steffy’s condition has not worsened. No, it– it’s nothing like that at all.

Taylor: OkaY. Thank god.

Ridge: But there is a change.

Brooke: What kind of change?

Bridget: Well, uh, it’s memory deficit. It’s, uh, a little more problematic than we initially realized.

Taylor: What you mean, problematic?

Ridge: That’s–

Bridget: Well, first of all, we all know that steffy does not remember how she and finn got shot, right?

Sheila: Ar– are you saying that that’s the way it’s going to stay, that– that she’s never going to regain her memory?

Bridget: No, no, I’m not– I’m not saying that at all, uh-

Taylor: What are you saying, bridget, please, just tell– tell us, please.

Bridget: This actually has more to do with liam.

Liam: Yeah–

Ridge: All right, li–

Liam: Okay, go.

Ridge: Liam came in the room and she– she was very grateful to see him.

Hope: Well, of course she would be, liam is important to her. This is kelly’s father, they were married.

Liam: Okay, all right, so that, um, that’s the thing.

Hope: What?

Liam: Uh, steffy now thinks, what she thinks–

Hope: Liam, what is it?

Liam: I– okay, so I come into the room and she’s really emotional, right? And– and she’s saying things like, you know, “oh, my god, I’m so glad you’re here. And– and, and I need you. And I need– I need my husband and…” hope, I’m pretty sure that steffy thinks that she and I are still married. Medusa lived with a hideous curse.

Quinn: I could always talk to you about anything. It’s what drew us together in the first place. It was always so easy between us. And I never had to be anyone but myself with you. It was– it was such a refreshing relief, knowing that you didn’t want to change me.

Carter: Why would I want to change you? And you can be yourself around eric too. He doesn’t want to change you either.

Quinn: Yes, but…

Carter: But what?

Quinn: You know what? I didn’t come here to get into all of that. I just came here to give you back your damn key, which I’ve done. So now I’m gonna leave and let you get back to work.

Carter: You sure the key wasn’t just an excuse?

Quinn: Okay. Also, I missed my friend. I know we see each other here at work, but it’s, you know, it’s just– it’s not the same thing.

Carter: And is that what we still are? Friends?

Quinn: I’d like to think so.

Carter: You know what I think?

Quinn: Hmm.

Carter: I think there’s not a woman in this world that is like you. You’re an original among originals.

Quinn: Oh, and don’t you forget it.

Carter: I haven’T. And never will.

Carter: Mm.

Nurse: Your blood pressure is slightly elevated. How are you feeling?

Steffy: Better if my husband was with me. Ask liam to come back right away.

Nurse: Okay, just relax. We’re going to get him. One second.

Hope: Steffy still thinks she’s married to you?

Brooke: What? So she has no recollection of finn whatsoever?

Liam: I don’t think so.

Taylor: But, what about hayes? Does she–

Ridge: Our daughter doesn’t think she has a little boy with finn.

Taylor: Oh my– oh my god.

Brooke: Well, you’re going to tell her, aren’t you?

Hope: She deserves to know what happened to finn.

Taylor: Okay, I– I don’t think that’s a good idea. And I– I’m speaking as a psychiatrist right now. S–steffy is going through a tremendous amount of trauma, and I don’t think we should–

Brooke: Yeah, but to let her go on believing that she’s liam’s wife, when he’s married to hope. I mean, that’s crazy. Uh– bridget, what do you think? Should steffy be told about finn?

Bridget: Mom, there are no easy answers here. Given steffy’s current condition and how fragile she is, I do have to agree with taylor here. We cannot dredge up steffy’s trauma. Not yet.

Nurse: Excuse me. Well, ms. Forrester’s asking for her husband.

[ Hope sighing ]

Liam: Yeah. Okay. We– I mean, we don’t want to upset her. We know that, right? Because her– her condition is fragile, like you just said. Maybe the best thing right now is just let keep believing what she’s believing. I–I– okay. Here we go.

Steffy: Oh, thank god. I thought you might have left.

Liam: I didn’t leave, I told you I was– I was right outside those doors. I didn’t go anywhere.

Steffy: I– I was so scared, liam. I– I was shot?

Liam: Um, yeah, you were. Yeah, but, but you know something? You’re going to be okay. Everything’s going to be okay. Listen to me. You are an extraordinary woman, and you are going to be 100%, in no time. You just got to tell me you believe that.

Steffy: I do. I do. I believe you.

Liam: Good.

Steffy: Yeah, as long as I have you, my husband, by my side. Just please tell me you’re not going to leave me. Please tell me I’m not going to be alone?

Liam: I’m not going to leave you. And you’re not going to be alone.

Bridget: This is good.

Ridge: Yeah?

Bridget: Very, very good. I am pleased with the progress you’re making, steffy.

Steffy: Mm. Can… I go home?

Bridget: Let’s not get ahead of ourselves right now. Not quite yet, okay, honey?

Ridge: Come here a second. Do you think I could try again? You know, trying to find out again, what happened in the alley, jog her memory a little bit–

Bridget: Ridge, just don’t get disappointed if she doesn’t have answers.

Ridge: I’m not– okay, hey, baby, you awake?

Steffy: Mm.

Ridge: I just want to try one more time, see if– maybe you remember what happened that night. Who did this to you?

Deacon: You were really going to jump?

Sheila: Yes.

Deacon: I just had no idea that you were that depressed.

Sheila: Am that depressed, deacon, I am. I would’ve done it. I just want the pain to go away I have never felt so low and worthless.

Deacon: And then taylor showed up.

Sheila: Yeah. She tried to stop me.

Taylor: Sheila!

Sheila: I was gonna do it anyway.

Taylor: Don’t do it.

Sheila: And she made a move toward me, and she slipped. She saved my life.

Taylor: Don’t drop me! [ Sobbing ] Thank you!

Sheila: And I saved hers.

Taylor: Have the kids been asking questions?

Hope: Uh, well, douglas did ask how long kelly and hayes are going to be there.

Liam: Oh, man.

Hope: Yeah.

Taylor: Well, he’s a very smart kid. I’m sure he’ll figure out something’s going on soon.

Liam: Yeah, probably. I ju– I’m grateful that steffy’s doing better, because at least it’s going to make that very difficult conversation we have to have with them a little bit easier. But– hey.

Brooke: Hi! I heard that steffy was awake.

Taylor: She is.

Brooke: She is? That’s wonderful. You must be so relieved.

Taylor: I am.

Brooke: So where’s ridge?

Carter: Uh, quinn, um, what can I do for you?

Quinn: Well, um, I thought it was time to give this back to you. Key to your loft. I figured enough time has passed. Maybe there was another someone special you might want to give it to. But… I never would have thought… you and paris. It’s true? You’re involved with paris because I saw her face when she walked out right now. That’s why she and zende aren’t engaged. [ Sighing ] Carter, what have you gotten yourself into?

Brooke: So, is ridge here?

Taylor: He is, yes. He’s in with steffy right now.

Brooke: Oh, okay. Yeah. So I probably shouldn’t interrupt.

Taylor: Yeah, probably.

Brooke: Has steffy said anything so far? Does she know who did this to her and finn?

Deacon: Hey. I don’t need to worry about you, do I? I– I mean, right now. Sheila, I know–

Sheila: No you have no idea.

Deacon: Okay, fair enough. You’re right. I don’T.

Sheila: Finn is dead. And my grandson is gonna grow up without his father.

Deacon: And maybe without a mother. Which is all the reason why you need to stay in this world. You gotta be here for– for hayes– I– sheila, you gotta be here for hayes if steffy doesn’t pull through.

Sheila: She’s doing better. Uh, she’s not out of the woods yet, but– but she’s awake.

Deacon: Hey! That’s great– that– that’s good news, right?

Steffy: It’s fuzzy how– I don’t remember being shot at. I don’T.

Bridget: Honey, maybe if you concentrate on why you were there in the first place?

Ridge: Yeah. Why– why were you in the alley with finn? You guys going out for a drink? Maybe? What were you doing?

Bridget: It’s okay, steffy, if you need to rest.

Steffy: No. I– I want to help.

Ridge: You are, you are helping, just try to see if– you remember a face, maybe? Was it a man or a woman? Tall, short? Anything? Who shot you, baby? Hi, I’m karen.

Quinn: So this thing between you and paris, this has been going on since new year’s eve?

Carter: It was a mistake, and it never should have happened. So it was an attraction we’re going to have to fight.

[ Keys jangling ] What?

Quinn: Trying to fight an attraction to you. That’s something I know a little bit about.

Taylor: Steffy doesn’t remember anything about the shooting. Her, finn.

Brooke: Oh, no.

Liam: But bridget did say that, um, that’s relatively normal, right, taylor? Like, we shouldn’t be too concerned about it.

Taylor: Well, I mean, it’s not ideal. But I– I don’t think we should worry. It’s understandable that steffy would suppress this kind of trauma.

Hope: Yeah, but suppress for how long?

Taylor: I don’t know. Right now, steffy is– she’s and out of consciousness. She has to be reminded where she is and what happened. [ Sighing ] But you know what? She’s– she’s made so much progress already. She’s– she’s awake. She’s getting better by the hour. Hopefully, she’ll be able to connect the dots and find out who did this.

Deacon: I get that steffy hasn’t exactly treated you with kindness since you came back. But I can’t believe that you would wish her dead.

Sheila: What I wish is that I could go back in time. Before they got shot and do somethin– just do something to stop it.

Deacon: I’m so sorry, sheila.

Sheila: So am I. I just wish that I could tell finn that. I could see him just one more time. Tell him how much I love him and how sorry I am. He’s gone. And I’m– I’m never gonna get to see him again. I’ll never get to see him again. [ Sobbing ]

Steffy: I want to remember. [ Wincing ]

Bridget: I think she’s had enough.

Steffy: I– I want to remember, but I can’t–

Ridge: It’s okay. It’s okay.

Steffy: I can’T.

Ridge: It’s okay. Rest. Just close your eyes and get some rest. It’s okay. What– I’m sorry. I’m just trying to find out who did this to her.

Bridget: I know, ridge, I know. And it will happen.

Ridge: It will happen. I promise you.

Ridge: We’ll find whoever did this. I know there’s more heartache coming your way, but– I’m here. I’m right here.

Brooke: Has anybody told her, about finn?

Liam: No. I mean, I– I don’t- I don’t think so, but, uh– it’s just– I mean that conversation, it’s going to be impossible. How do we even– she lost her husband, you know.

Hope: Hi, amelia said that the kids are fine. And if we wanted to, she can bring them by the hospital later.

Liam: Oh, excellent. That’s really cool. I would, I– I would like to stay a little bit longer, at least until I can have a– a proper conversation with steffy. Um, actually, maybe I’m going to see if I can go do that now. Do you mind?

Hope: No.

Liam: All right. I love you.

Taylor: You happy with the numbers?

Bridget: Quite happy. You saw the follow up ct scan?

Taylor: Yeah.

Bridget: This is exactly where I would expect steffy to be.

Taylor: What about her memory?

Bridget: Taylor. You, of all people, know we don’t worry about that yet.

Taylor: Yeah, as a doctor. Sure. I’ve been trying to stay positive around my family. Not let them know what I’m feeling. But as a mother, I’m freaking out, bridget.

Bridget: Just remember, she regained consciousness.

Taylor: Yeah, hm.

Bridget: That was our biggest hurdle. Taylor, look at me. You got to hang in there, okay?

Taylor: Yes. Thank you. I’m– I’m trying. I’m trying.

Bridget: Don’t forget, it may not be such a bad thing that she doesn’t recall everything, just for the time being.

[ Sighing ]

Taylor: I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like for her to have to recall that horrific night. To experience those emotions again, and all of that but I know that it’s important, so she can tell us who did this, so we can put them behind bars.

Bridget: Well, it was a good sign that she woke up and knows who she is, who we are. We just need to give her some time to remember the events of that night.

Taylor: But when is she going to remember? When is she gonna be able to tell us what happened?

Quinn: Who knew paris and I would have so much in common. I should go and find her. Give her some advice–

Carter: No, no, no. Please don’T. Don’t do that.

Quinn: What? Professor quinn, how to get over carter walton 101.

Carter: Why is this funny? Why– why are you joking right now?

[ Chuckling ]

Quinn: Are you sure things are really over?

Carter: Yes. Yes. Falling for a woman involved with another man? Fool me once, right?

Quinn: Are you all right?

Carter: Can I tell you the truth?

Quinn: Always.

Carter: I haven’t been all right since you went back to eric. Been a bit of a mess, very confused, and– instead of moving on with a woman who’s available, what do I do? I hook up with zende’s girlfriend, he’s one of my best friends, and then– I let something happen with the woman I knew I couldn’t have. A relationship I knew would go nowhere.

Quinn: Why would you do that to yourself?

Carter: Because I couldn’t go after a woman with actual potential. Couldn’t risk starting something, not when…

Quinn: Not when what?

Carter: Not when a part of me is… still wanting… wishing. I miss you, quinn. I miss you.

Quinn: I miss you, too.

Taylor: It’s so upsetting, knowing that whoever did this is just walking around free.

Bridget: I know. I understand. I really, really do understand your frustration. But you have got to have some patience. You know, we just have to hope that steffy will be able to remember everything.

Taylor: You don’t really believe that she won’t, do you? See, I–I’ve been trying to stay strong for my family. Not wanting them to see that there is– there’s a part of me that is afraid that she’s not going to remember anything. You think the same thing too, don’t you? You think it’s possible& steffy might not remember what happened that night?

Brooke: Must be a little strange for you. Your husband has barely left the hospital since he found out, practically holding vigil at his ex-wife’s bedside.

Hope: Uh mom, steffy is very important to liam.

Brooke: Yes, they share a history.

Hope: And they share a child. So trust me, liam is exactly where he should be.

Brooke: Okay. What about you?

Hope: What about me?

Brooke: Uh, you and liam are a couple. Why didn’t you go in there with him?

Hope: Because steffy is still in a fragile state. She experienced something very traumatic, and I don’t want to overwhelm her. And besides, liam should have alone time with her. Mom, where is all this coming from?

Hope: I just thought you should have gone in there with him, that’s all. I mean, why wouldn’t you go in there? Liam is your husband.

Hope: I know that, mom. I know. And you don’t have to worry because nothing is going to change that.

[ Groaning ]

Ridge: Hey.

Steffy: Dad?

Ridge: You’re all right? You’re in pain?

Steffy: A little bit. Where am I? What happened?

Ridge: Wait, wait, you’re in the hospital, we talked about this. You– everything’s fine.

Steffy: Oh. Yeah, you– you want me to remember.

Ridge: Don’t worry about that.

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: Just rest, don’t worry.

Liam: Hey. Room for one more?

Ridge: Sure.

Liam: I, uh– I heard a rumor somebody is up and talking.

Steffy: Liam! Oh, liam.

Liam: Hey! Hey. Oh, my god. Oh, my god. There you are. Oh, boy. Look at you. Look at your smile. You really came back to us, didn’t you? Do you have any idea how worried I was about you? What I would have done if you had left us?

Steffy: I would never leave you. I would never, ever, ever leave you. Thank god you’re here. Thank god.

Liam: Honey, of course I’m here. I’m here.

Steffy: I needed you. Oh, I needed you. I needed you. I needed my sweet husband. Oh, I needed you. My sweet husband. [ Steffy sobbing ] [ Sobbing ]

Ridge: I can’t believe this. You could’ve died tonight.

Taylor: Yes. I…I was on the roof of the hospital, and–

Ridge: And she saved your life.

Taylor: Yeah. She did. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for sheila.

[Birds chirping]

Eric: [Sighs]

Quinn: You know, we didn’t have to come in to work today. Could’ve stayed home.

Eric: No, I wanted to come in to feel like we were doing something instead of just sitting around waiting.


Quinn: Hey.

Eric: Thank god steffy’s regained consciousness.

Quinn: Yeah. Steffy and finn being shot– it’S…surreal.

Eric: Yeah. It’s hard to believe finn’s gone.

Quinn: [Sighs]

Eric: We just have to rally around steffy and the children. We have to do that. We have to help them get past this as a family. We’ve overcome so much before. We’ll overcome this, too.

Carter: Hey.

Zende: Hey. What’s up, man?

Carter: Thanks again for keeping me updated till I can get here.

Zende: Hey, man, we appreciate you holding down the fort at forrester with everything going on here.

[Cellphone chimes]

Carter: Uh, liam and hope stopped by the cafeteria. They wanna know if you want anything.

Zende: I’m good.

Paris: Yeah, me, too. I just–I can’t imagine how scared steffy and finn must have been. They didn’t deserve this, and ah–I just can’t believe finn is gone.

Carter: Can’t imagine what taylor and ridge are going through, seeing steffy in that hospital bed. They already lost one daughter. I just–I hate this is happening to them.

Zende: And to all of us. You’re not just a best friend to ridge. You’re like a brother to him. You’re a part of this family.

Carter: Yeah, you guys are like family to me, too.

Zende: Believe me, we know. Your love and loyalty is felt. Thank you for being a great friend to all of us.

Zende: Here.

Carter: Oh, thanks, man.

Zende: Yeah.

Carter: Paris took off?

Zende: Yeah, she didn’t want to, but she had to go meet up with her mom. I did get to speak to bridget, though.

Carter: Any updates?

Zende: Not yet. Steffy’s still resting.

Carter: That’s good.

Zende: Yeah. Yeah. Um…now’s probably not the right time.

Carter: For?

Zende: I wanted to talk to you, maybe get some advice.

Carter: Okay. Well, we have some time before we should head back to the office. You know, steffy wouldn’t want us holding vigil when there’s work to be done.

Zende: Yeah.

Carter: What’s up?

Zende: Well, I know I told paris that we’d take things slow, and I have been dating other women.

Carter: Plural? Not just sequoyah?

Zende: Yeah, listen, I’ve been doing what I can to keep paris off of my mind, but I can’T. I’m in love with her. And this whole experience– it proves that life is too short. I’m ready to make paris my wife, and I hope that she’s ready, too. I…I know I can make her happy. I would treat her like a queen.

Carter: Yeah. Yeah, of course you would.

Zende: So? What do you think? I mean, you know paris really well.

Carter: Follow your heart. Propose to her.

Ridge: I’m grateful that you saved taylor’s life. I am, and I’m grateful that there was no more tragedy. But we have to focus on steffy now. She needs us. And what happened to you is horrible. You need to mourn your son, but what are you doing, jumping off a building? That’s not gonna bring finn back.

Baker: Unfortunately, nothing is going to bring him back. But I can and I will do everything in my power to make sure that the trash that shot finn and steffy is found and brought to justice.

Sheila: Excuse me.

Taylor: Sheila–

Sheila: No, it’s all right. I’m gonna be all right. You just talk to the deputy chief.

Woman over P.A.: Dr. Forrest, dial 118, please. Dr. Forrest, please dial 118.

Sheila: [Exhales deeply] I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Zende: Hey, quinn.

Quinn: Hey, zende.

Zende: Granddad.

Ridge: Hi. Hi, son.

Zende: [Sighs]

Ridge: Any updates on steffy?

Zende: Just that she’s stable and still resting.

Quinn: How are ridge and taylor doing?

Zende: Staying strong. I don’t know how they’re doing it.

Eric: They’re forresters. That’s how they do it. Son, what’s up? How you feeling? Everything okay?

Zende: Yeah. Yeah, I’ve just been thinking about family and how important it is and to never let go of what makes you happy. I can’t wait anymore, granddad. I can’T.

Eric: Can’t wait for what?

Zende: Ask paris to be my wife.

Carter: [Sighs]

[Knock on door] Hey, uh, paris, I’m in the middle–

Paris: Don’t do that. I know you’ve been avoiding me.

Carter: You’re right. It sucks, but it’s the right thing to do for the both of us.

Paris: Why is that something you get to decide?

Carter: Because I’ve been down this road, and I know how it ends.

Paris: You think you–

Carter: Paris, stop. We’re not doing this. This is never gonna happen. I’m wrong for you. You should be with zende, not me.

Baker: Okay, let me know if anything goes down.

Ridge: New leads?

Baker: Well, not yet. I was just talking with our cyber team. The restaurant’s cameras have been down. The only other camera that might be able to help was on an atm, but somebody put a decal across it.

Ridge: So we’re nowhere closer to finding out who shot finn or steffy.

Baker: We’re on it. In the meantime, I understand that steffy’s regained consciousness? That’s what I’m here for. I’d like to speak with her.

Taylor: No, I don’t– I don’t think that’s gonna happen right now. She’s really in no position to be questioned.

Baker: Dr. Hayes, your concern about your daughter is understandable, but steffy is my only witness. Anything she says could be helpful.

Taylor: Right.

Ridge: We tried talking to her when she woke up.

Baker: What did she say?

Ridge: She was disoriented. She didn’t remember anything about the shooting. Not yet, anyway.

Steffy: You shot your son! You’re a monster!

[Sobs] You’re going to prison for the rest of your life.

Sheila: I didn’t even know he was here!

Steffy: Oh, you’re sick. You’re sick!

Deacon: Sheila. I came to check on you. You shouldn’t be alone.

Sheila: I deserve to be. Oh, somehow I really don’t think I am. After ever–everything that’s been happening and what I’ve been going through, something really amazing happened today, too.

Deacon: Amazing?

Sheila: I saved taylor’s life. (Nathan m) secondhand smoke

Eric: Well, I have to say, with everything that’s going on, it’s very nice to hear some good news for a change.

Zende: Thank you, granddad. And I know we’re young, but she makes me happy.

Eric: I can see the joy she brings to you.

Quinn: Okay, I don’t mean to be a downer here. I don’T. Uh, but are you sure that paris feels the same way? ‘Cause I remember her telling you that she wanted to keep things casual?

Zende: She did, but it’s a gut thing, you know? I feel it in my heart, I mean, I know that paris is my future.

Paris: So you’re saying that we can’t be together? That could never happen?

Carter: We can’T.

Paris: I thought you said you loved me. Was that true? Because if you love me, and I love you, why can’t we figure out a way to make it work? And if this is about my mother–

Carter: Yes, paris, of course this is about your mother. Her–her reaction is the same exact reaction everyone else will have if they found out. I’ve been forgiven for my involvement with quinn, but I’m pretty much on probation around here. That nice guy with the moral compass is gone to them, probably forever, and I won’t let the same thing happen to you.

Paris: Carter…

Carter: No! Look, paris, as much as I care about you, I can’t give you what zende can. I spoke to him. He loves you. He wants to make a life with you. Zende is your future.

Taylor: I can’t believe this is happening.

Ridge: Steffy’s gonna be fine.

Taylor: Yeah. I know. Just…seeing her in there like that, it just reminds me of phoebe. I can’t lose her.

Ridge: Oh, don’t do that. You’re not losing steffy. She’s way too stubborn to go anywhere.

Taylor: [Chuckles] You always know the right things to say.

Ridge: Mm. You know why, right?

Taylor: Mnh-mnh.

Ridge: I used to be married to this really good psychiatrist.

Taylor: Was she world-renowned?

Ridge: Ha ha! Yeah, I guess she was. Steffy’s gonna be okay. We’re all gonna be okay.

Taylor: My hearts breaks for li and jack… sheila.

Ridge: Sheila. So now that she’s gone, why don’t you tell me what happened between the two of you on the roof?

Taylor: Aah! No! Don’t drop me!

[Exhales deeply] Sheila. The same woman who… destroyed my life years ago saved it.

Deacon: Taylor almost fell off the roof?

Sheila: Not almost. She did. She could’ve died.

Deacon: [Gasps] This–this is just like– it’s such a head trip.

Sheila: Tell me about it.

Deacon: Wait a minute. What were you and taylor doing on top of the roof?

Sheila: That’s where she found me. I wanted to end my life, deacon. Go with simparica trio it’s triple protection made simple!

Paris: I wish you would stop pushing me towards zende.

Carter: That’s where you would be if this never happened. And yeah, you’re not ready for commitment with him, but you love zende, and he loves you. It would have only been a matter of time if I never interfered.

Paris: Interfered? We fell for each other.

Carter: And it was wrong. And I’m sorry, paris. What we shared, it felt wonderful, but it should have never happened. We can’t be together.

Paris: Everybody thinks they have a say in how I feel. Everyone wants to tell me which way to go–you, my mother. But I need to make one thing clear. I’m a grown woman. I don’t need to be protected by you or my mom. I make my own decisions.

Carter: Paris, I–

Paris: I’m not done. I make my own decisions, and I’m deciding you. I’d risk it. For you, I’d risk my job, my standing with the forrester family, if it means I get to be with you. You’re worth the risk, carter.

Carter: Well, it’s not worth the risk to me.

Paris: You don’t mean that.

Carter: I do. I won’t ruin your life.

Paris: [Scoffs]

Carter: Whatever this is between us, it’s over. Zende wants to be your husband. If he proposes, and he will, you should accept. Make a life with zende.

Paris: [Sobs]

Carter: I just want you to be happy.

Carter: [Exhales deeply]

[Door closes]

Quinn: Really? You and paris?

Ridge: So I could have lost you? Steffy and thomas could have lost their mother because of sheila?

Taylor: Sheila was shattered by finn’s death, and, ridge, I don’t know. I could see how much she was hurting, and when I went to go find her, I…she was– she was about to jump. I didn’t know what to do. So I just–I…I… I lunged towards her, and I–

Ridge: And you fell off the roof?

Taylor: Then–but then somehow sheila just grabbed me, and she–she pulled me back up.

Ridge: And you know what? I’m very grateful for that. But let’s not forget all the things she’s done to our family.

Taylor: Well, but…I’m– I’m not forgetting that this is A…pretty good start.

Ridge: How–how is that? No. The woman shot you. One good deed doesn’t erase all the evil she’s done. Don’t–don’t tell me you’re looking at her differently.

Deacon: You were really gonna jump?

[Sighs] Sheila, I can only imagine the kind of pain that you’re in. Finn was a great man. He was a great father. And he didn’t deserve to die, but neither do you. I just didn’t realize that you were in such a dark place. I know this sounds cliché, but it will get easier.

Sheila: Oh, would you just spare me? You have no idea what I’m going through. You know, everything I touch, everyone that I love, I hurt and I destroy. I never should have come back to L.A.

Deacon: Sheila, stop.

Sheila: If only I hadn’t come back to L.A.

Deacon: You can’t blame yourself. None of this was your fault.

Steffy: You’re going to prison for the rest of your life.

Sheila: Put it down now! No!

Ridge: Doc… sheila hasn’t changed.

Taylor: She saved my life, ridge.

Ridge: The only reason you were on that roof is because of her. Wherever this woman goes, chaos follows her, and she’s at her lowest right now. Makes her more dangerous. Trying to figure out what she’s gonna do to this family next.

Sheila: [Gasps]

Ridge: Do you remember anything about what happened that night?

Steffy: [ Groaning ]

Ridge: Do you remember the person that shot you?

Taylor: Honey, it’s okay if you can’t remember right now. The last thing your father and I want to do is cause you any more stress. We’re just– we’re just trying to figure out how you got here, baby. Can you remember anything that happened in il giardino?

Ridge: Anything? Anything at all?

[ Steffy groaning ] What are– I’m sorry, I can’T. What did you say? Who shot you?

Steffy: Ah… der. Ah– other.

Liam: Thank god steffy’s awake.

Paris: Yeah, you must be extremely relieved.

Liam: Oh. Beyond. I mean, it’s only one hurdle down, but, you know, it’s a big one.

Zende: I can’t even imagine, man. I’m so happy for my family.

Paris: Ah, especially ridge and taylor. They’ve been praying so hard.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, we– bridget did say that steffy’s condition is still serious, but regaining consciousness, that– that’s a big deal.

Hope: God, I really feel like there’s a real reason to hope now. And you can breathe a little easier. We all can.

Liam: Yeah. You know what’s funny? Is I’ve been so worried that this moment would never come, but in retrospect, it’s like, “oh, yeah, it’s steffy.” Like, of course she’s going to pull through.

Paris: Of course she is. She’s fierce. I mean, she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hope: And she would never, ever leave kelly or hayes.

Zende: No, they need her too much right now.

Liam: All right, I just want scoop them up and squeeze them. I mean, I–I’m being realistic. I know steffy has a long ways to go, but, my god, she’s been given another chance, you know?

Hope: I love you too. Bye. Right, well, my mom is beyond thrilled, and she’d like to come to the hospital, but she, um, also wants to be respectful of this moment with ridge and his family.

Liam: Oh, yeah, I could see that. Well, steffy might be a little overwhelmed right now.

Zende: Yeah, let’s just be glad that they’re all in there and they’re getting to spend some time together.

Paris: Yeah. I wonder how much steffy is aware of what happened. Like, if she knows who shot her?

Ridge: Who shot you? Try to say it again, please.

Steffy: Ah… der.

Ridge: I don’t understand, I’m sorry.

Taylor: Okay, maybe we should just give her a minute, okay?

Ridge: No, see, she wants– she wants to say something. What is it? Honey, did you remember anything? Their face, maybe? You remember their face?

Thomas: Okay. Obviously, it hurts for her to talk, but maybe, maybe she could write it down?

Sheila: Clearly, she’s struggling. Thomas, you don’t want to do anything that’s gonna–

Ridge: Nobody asked your opinion.

Taylor: Okay, okay. She’s very fragile right now. We just need to give her a minute, okay?

Steffy: No… no.

Thomas: No, see? She wants to tell us something.

Ridge: Go ahead. Tell us. What do you– what do you know?

Steffy: Ot… her.

Ridge: I’m sor– what? I’m sorry.

Steffy: Need… water.

Taylor: Wat– water?

Thomas: She needs water. Yeah, okay.

Ridge: Yeah.

[ Water pouring ]

Thomas: Here you go, I got some water.

Taylor: Here you go. Can you hold it here, baby? Here you go. Here you go.

Ridge: Hey, take it easy.

Taylor: Okay.

Ridge: Anything? Do you know what happened? Do you– do you remember anything?

Unleash the freshness…

Zende: We are too. Okay, great. Yes. Spread the word. Thanks, carter, we’ll see you soon. Everyone at forrester is thrilled to hear the good news about steffy. Uh, any update while I was on the phone?

Liam: Uh, no. Oh, but maybe thomas knows. Hey.

Thomas: Hi, you guys are great for being here.

Paris: We’re just so worried about your sister. And– and carter’s on the way, too. How is– how is steffy doing?

Liam: She’s still conscious, right?

Thomas: Yeah, yeah, and she is a little out of it, though.

Hope: Well, I can imagine. She must be confused by everything that’s happening.

Thomas: Yeah.

Liam: Has she spoken yet?

Thomas: Well, yeah. I mean, she– she did ask for some water.

Hope: That’s great.

Liam: Hey.

Thomas: Yeah.

Paris: Okay. Yeah, that’s good. It might just take her a little while to get her bearings again.

Thomas: Yeah, they did say it could take some time.

Zende: How are your parents doing? I mean, this must be a huge weight off their shoulders.

Thomas: Yeah, they– they’ve been by her bedside this entire time.

Paris: I’m sure she could feel them. All that love from everyone surrounding her. Rallying for her.

Thomas: Yeah. I mean, she could definitely use as much positive energy as possible.

Hope: Well, I know I– bridget said she was still being closely monitored.

Liam: But they– but they’re saying that the worst of it is over, right?

Thomas: Yeah. I mean, she– she won the battle, but there’s a whole war, you know, so you just have to help her through it all and– and hope that there aren’t any more surprises.

Taylor: You just need to take it easy, sweetheart. I mean, you’re– you need to rest so your body can heal.

Ridge: Anything you want, anything we can get you?

Taylor: You know what might be great? You know those–those ice pops that she used to like?

Ridge: Oh, yeah. It would melt all over the back seat of the car, remember those? Purple ones.

Taylor: Yeah. Oh, honey. I mean, I’m sure your mind is going a million miles a minute right now, trying to process everything and all these questions being thrown at you. But the most important thing right now is for you just to– just relax, to– to breathe. Don’t push yourself, okay? The doctors are giving you medicine to– to keep you calm, but no opioids. Are you in any pain?

Steffy: Mm-mm.

Taylor: Okay. We’ll– we’re going to stay on top of that.

Ridge: That is vip treatment you’re getting from dr. Taylor hayes.

Taylor: You’re going to be fine, sweetheart. Your dad and I are making sure you get excellent care.

Bridget: How’s our patient?

Taylor: Oh, she’s– she’s tired, but she’s alert.

Bridget: Steffy? Hi, honey, it’s bridget. How are you feeling?

Steffy: Okay. Do you know why you’re here?

Steffy: Shot.

Bridget: That’s right. Listen to me. You are doing very, very well. I’m pleased with the progress you’re making.

Taylor: She’s really not saying much.

Bridget: It’s such a good sign, how responsive she is. It– it’s pretty much what I would expect at this stage in recovery.

Ridge: I asked her if she can recall anything of that night. She can’T.

Bridget: That– that’s not surprising.

Ridge: No?

Taylor: No, but, uh, I think maybe she might have repressed the traumatic memory.

Sheila: So, is– is there a chance that she’ll never remember what happened that night?

Bridget: She may not. This could also just be temporary. Uh, sounds and images might come back in grainy little snippets. But on the other hand, they might come back very vividly, just flooding her memory. It’s extremely hard to predict the situation, but I will order a– a neuro consult asap.

Taylor: No, I think it’s probably a good idea for us to give her a healthy amount of space.

Bridget: That’s smart. Her brain and her body is extremely fatigued.

Taylor: You know, if I know my daughter, and I do, she’s going to want justice. Whoever did this, she’s going to hold them accountable, but as her mother, right now, all I care about is that she’s awake. She– she’s back with us.

[ Ridge chuckling ] If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Thomas: Bottom line is, as of now, steffy is stable. She’s hanging in there.

Liam: I mean, I’m– I’m optimistic, obviously, but I’m also very aware of the 800 other things that could mess up her recovery.

Thomas: You and me both.

Paris: Yeah, I– I think we’re all feeling like that. Hopeful, but scared.

Thomas: But, you know, steffy would say, uh, to– to keep the positive energy. Right? Keep our chins up. That’s what she would tell us to do. Because you know what? There’s a long road ahead, but she can use it.

Paris: Well, we will do anything to help get her out of here.

Zende: And tell her that everyone at the office was celebrating when they heard she’d woken up.

Thomas: Ah, she’ll love to hear that.

Liam: So, did– I mean, does she have any recollection or memory of what happened, or who did this to her?

Thomas: I mean, my dad’s been asking her questions, trying to spark that memory, but she’s really groggy. As of now, steffy doesn’t remember anything.

Bridget: Her reflexes are good, her blood pressure’s stabilizing. I am going to order another infusion of antibiotics.

Taylor: So, steffy’s condition is improving?

Bridget: Well, all I can say is she’s stable at the moment. I know you all are very, very concerned. And I’m not saying that there won’t be complications or challenges in the future, but she’s responding so well to treatment.

Taylor: It’s wonderful. It’s wonderful.

Ridge: Thank you, bridget, for everything.

Taylor: Yes, thank you so much. Finn would be so happy to know that his wife is being cared for by such a great doctor.

Bridget: It’s my pleasure, my job. I– I’m just so grateful I could be here for her. I will keep you all updated.

Taylor: This is everything I’ve been waiting for!

Sheila: We, uh, shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves because steffy’s condition is still touch and go. But I’m so happy for you, taylor.

Taylor: Thank you. All these hours that we’ve been waiting here, just hoping and praying that she’s going to be okay.

Ridge: All right. I have to tell you something. I may have made a deal with the big guy upstairs, and there might be a price to pay, but I’ll do it gladly.

Taylor: Oh, ridge. We are so blessed. We– we really are. You know, I’ve been– I’ve been trying to stay positive, I– I really have, you know? But I– every hour that passed, I kept thinking. I don’t know. I got scared that maybe steffy wasn’t gonna wake up, that maybe we weren’t gonna see her again–

Ridge: No, no, she is, she’s here, right? She’s gonna be okay. I can feel it in my bones. How are we going to tell her about finn? What are we gonna say?

Ridge: We’ll just– we’ll have to be strong for her– we have to. We’ll just have to be there for her. Hey. Our hearts go out to you, and I hope you find peace and calm in… how you’re dealing with finn’s death, but, uh, it’s time for you to go.

Taylor: Hey–

Ridge: It’s family business.

Sheila: It’s just– I– I really thought that–

Taylor: Ridge. It’s okay. She can stay. Sheila is the grandmother of steffy’s child. She’s a part of us. She belongs here.

Frank is a fan of fast.

He’s a fast talker.

Liam: Uh, hi– hey. We were hoping we might get to see steffy for a minute.

Nurse: Sure. She’s asleep. Just press the call button if she needs anything.

Hope: Thank you.

Liam: Okay, yeah. Thanks. Hey, steffy. It’s liam.

Hope: And hope.

Liam: We, uh– we heard the good news. Just wanted to come see for ourselves, and, uh, look at that. You actually came back to us. You’re going to be back to your old self in no time.

Hope: And– and we know you’ve already been through so much already, and you’re probably exhausted. But, uh, zende and paris were here at the hospital and they want you to know that everyone from work is thinking about you and sending their love and– and so does my mom.

Liam: Yeah, um, yeah, I’m also– I’m sure you’re, uh– you’re gonna be thinking about the kids. So, I want you to know they’re great. They’re doing totally great. Nothing to worry about there. Kelly and hayes have been loved and cared for and they’re going to continue to be until you can get out of this bed and do it yourself, which is going to happen in no time. You’re going to be back on your feet. So, you just keep doing what you’re doing. You fight the good fight. Get better. Okay? All right.

Hope: You get your rest now.

Liam: Yeah.

Ridge: Wait. You’re saying she’s– she’s a part of us? She should stay? Is that– is that what–

Taylor: That’s what I’m saying.

Ridge: Huh.

Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, if you just let me explain–

Ridge: No, let me explain something. I don’t wanna be the bad guy here. She’s not part of our family.

Sheila: My son is dead–

Ridge: I know he’s dead! I know that. Finn was a good kid. We’re all going to mourn him. You– you can mourn him in your time, with your friends, your family, not ours. We need to focus on steffy. Everything we have is going to go towards her. And you know what? I don’t think she’d want you here.

Taylor: She– she would. She would, if she knew what just happened, ridge. Something you don’t know. I have– I have to tell him. Ridge, something– something happened, uh– sheila was in a very, very dark place. Finn’s death profoundly affected her.

Ridge: Of course, it has– I’m not saying it hasn’T.

Taylor: I was worried about sheila. Something was– was really wrong. So, I went to look for her. And I found her on the roof.

Ridge: You– you were gonna end your life, you were gonna jump? Really?

Sheila: I– I’m not proud to admit that.

Taylor: Something happened up there. Something happened up there, ridge, she– sheila saved my life.

Ridge: What does that– what does that mean, she saved your life?

Taylor: She saved my life.

Ridge: How?

Taylor: She was– I don’t– she was about to jump. She was about to jump off the ledge. And– and I rushed up to her. And I– I don’t know what happened, but I slipped and I fell off the roof. Don’t drop me! And I was– I was– I was literally dangling off– off the ledge. And I– I don’t know how she did it, but she… no, don’t drop me! She found the strength to grab my arm and pull me back up onto the roof. Sheila saved my life, ridge. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her.

Steffy: No…

Taylor: What is it, sweetheart?

Steffy: Shei… la…

Liam: Nobody’s here. Why is nobody here?

Hope: I’m sure they’re all in with steffy.

Liam: Yeah, okay. Yeah. I just can’t– I can’t even believe this is happening, like the fact that steffy’s even laying in a hospital bed right now, like why– who would do this? Who would do this to steffy and finn, of all people?

Hope: Oh, bridget, is there any word on steffy?

Bridget: You haven’t heard yet? It’s good news! She regained consciousness!

Liam: Wha– what? Really? Oh, my god, oh, my god, oh, my god.

Hope: She’s going to be okay!

Liam: Yes. Yes.

Thomas: You had us all scared, sis.

Taylor: Yeah. But we need you to come back to the people that love you and need you.

Ridge: She was guided.

Taylor: What does that mean?

Ridge: Well, I had a word with the big man and he answered. It’s a long story.

Steffy: What… what happened?

Liam: Oh, my god, this is amazing. I– I can’t believe it. So, so what, so what exactly– what does this mean? Is– is steffy out of danger now, or–

Bridget: No, no, no, she still has a fight ahead of her, but regaining consciousness is a step in the right direction for sure. I am cautiously optimistic.

Hope: All right, well, we’ll take iT.

Liam: Yeah, totally. Thank you for telling us. Di– I assume the team knows about steffy’s history with opioids and all that– okay, all right. Thank you.

Bridget: Uh, I will keep you guys in the loop. But I’m gonna check on her condition.

Liam: Yeah, no, no, yeah, go do your thing. Do your thing. Oh, my god!

Zende: We came to check on steffy.

Hope: Gosh!

Paris: Any updates?

Hope: Uh, you actually got here just in time.

Liam: Uh, so get this, bridget just told us steffy regained consciousness.

Zende: Man, what a relief. What’s the prognosis?

Liam: Uh, it’s just well, still some obstacles ahead, but– but it is a major improvement.

Steffy: Hos… a hospital?

Ridge: That’s right.

Taylor: Don’t– don’t try to talk, sweetheart, please. Save your strength, your body has been through a tremendous shock.

Thomas: Uh, you don’t remember why you’re here, huh?

Ridge: You were shot.

Steffy: Shot?

Zende: You can imagine how shocked we were when we heard what happened.

Hope: Oh my gosh, no one told the office. I feel so bad, I should have called. I’m sorry.

Paris: No, wait. You’re literally going through a tragedy.

Zende: It’s a double tragedy. But what the hell happened?

Paris: Yeah, is– is finn really dead?

Hope: It’s horrible, and it hasn’t really sunken in yet because we’ve all been so focused on steffy.

Paris: I was hoping that that was some kind of mistake through word getting around. Like, yeah, he’s been shot, but he’s still alive. How can it be any other way?

Zende: Thank god we didn’t lose both of them. Steffy, she’s gonna make it, right?

Hope: No, she has to.

Liam: I mean, it’s steffy, right? She’s not about to abandon her kids.

Hope: Poor hayes has lost his father now.

Zende: Finn was a good man.

Paris: So… what are the circumstances?

Liam: I mean, they don’t know exactly. They– they think it’s a robbery gone wrong.

Paris: What was taken?

Liam: Okay, so: Steffy’s purse, finn’s wallet and cell phone, and then, just, just their rings.

Paris: Anyone else find it strange why steffy and finn would even be there?

Zende: It’s a long valet line, maybe? They could have had dinner and parked out back.

Paris: I mean, I– I suppose. I don’t know, maybe it was a wrong place, wrong time thing? Does– does steffy know that finn is gone?

Liam: Yeah, see I– see, that’s a good question, and we don’T… I don’t know, I mean, I guess it would just depend on like, the timing. Right? ‘Cause if– oh, god, if, you know, finn was shot first…

Zende: Either way, this is awful. Steffy lost a husband and– and hayes lost his father.

Paris: Who would do something like this? Anyone who knew steffy and finn, how incredible and extraordinary they were– I mean, it had to be a stranger.

Zende: I mean– I don’t know, if you’re trying to piece this together, they– I mean, clearly, they had dinner, right? And I guess maybe they just– they left the restaurant out of the back for whatever reason and I suppose they just walked into something they couldn’t have anticipated.

Liam: I guess, I–

Paris: Oh how’s– how’s ridge?

Liam: Uh, you know, I mean he’s– he’s hanging in there, he’s– it’s ridge, he’s trying to be strong for his family, but, uh, it’s– it’s tough.

Zende: I’m sure. Steffy, she’s the light of uncle ridge’s life. I don’t even want to imagine what losing her would do to him.

Liam: Well, unfortunately she’s not– you know, we’re not in the clear yet. Bridget said there still might be complications.

Paris: But she did sound optimistic.

Liam: Cautiously, she said.

Hope: Yeah, but I mean, we can’t count steffy out. She’s a fighter.

Liam: Well, that much is true.

Hope: Yeah, I mean, she’s made it this far. I can only imagine that she’ll– she’ll find her way back.

Paris: Yeah, I mean there’s no way she’s leaving those kids. Hayes and kelly, they mean everything to her.

Zende: How you holding up, liam? This whole thing must be a nightmare for you.

Liam: Uh, thank you, thanks for asking. I, um– okay, I, it’s just– it’s, it’s steffy, so that, you know, there’s a lot of history there. We share a child together, we– we went through great pains to, you know, blend our families so that we could co-parent kelly. The thought of her not being around to see kelly grow up, I– I don’t know, it’s just, it’s not– it’s not something I was mentally prepared for facing.

Hope: Well, you don’t have to, okay? Steffy’s not going anywhere.

Liam: Yeah.

Paris: No way, but it goes to show how you have to cherish every moment. It can be gone just like that.

Hope: Something we shouldn’t take for granted.

Zende: Yeah, but I keep coming back to the same place in my mind. I mean, steffy and finn are good people. They don’t make them any better. Who– who would just shoot them and then just disappear into the night?

Steffy: You shot your son.

We need to get help!

You’re sick.

You’re sick. You’re going

to prison for the rest

of your life!

Taylor: This is too much right now. You just woke up.

Sheila: Yeah, taylor is right. You wanna take things slowly. You don’t wanna jeopardize steffy’s recovery. Her condition is still very fragile.

Ridge: Hey, sheila. Thank you. I think we got it.

Taylor: Okay. She’s just trying to help.

Ridge: We don’t need her help. If anyone knows what to do for steffy, it’s us, the three of us. Her family.

Sheila: I– I wasn’t trying to imply anything other than that. It– it’s just… there’s plenty of time for– for her remembering what had to be an incredibly traumatic event.

Ridge: You know what. That surprises me. I thought you want to find the shooter. Make sure they go to jail for what they did.

Steffy: Shot…

Taylor: Yes, baby, it was awful.

Steffy: Why? And there it is.

Hope: You hanging in there?

Liam: Yeah. I’m– you know, I’m just beyond grateful that steffy’s awake, but I guess I’m still processing.

Hope: I know.

Paris: I just don’t understand how this is real. Finn is gone. Like, he’ll never be able to teach hayes how to throw a football or save another patient’s life. How can that be?

Zende: I can’t imagine steffy without him.

Liam: You know something? I don’t think I ever told finn how much I appreciated him just loving my child. No questions asked.

Hope: Sweetie, I’m sure finn knew how grateful you were.

Liam: I don’t know how to tell kelly she’s never gonna see him again.

Hope: Well, when steffy feels up to it, we will find a way to tell her together as a family.

Paris: But for now, she’s just gotta keep fighting.

Hope: And she will. For the kids. Especially hayes, because he needs her more now than ever.

[ Liam groaning ]

Liam: It’s just, I don’t– I don’t understand how– I mean, it’s just the way that we lost finn. It’s like, it’s so senseless, it’s–

Paris: Over money or credit cards?

Liam: Yeah.

Paris: It’s j– that doesn’t make sense, and I know steffy and finn would have given whatever the person wanted, so why shoot them?

Zende: We’re trying to make sense out of something that’s totally random.

Paris: I just hope the police are close to catching the person who did this.

Hope: Well, I mean maybe steffy will be able to shed some light on the situation now that she’s awake.

Liam: With any luck. Identify the son of a bitch who did it.

Sheila: Why? You mean, why were you shot?

Ridge: It appears to have been a robbery.

Thomas: Yeah, stef, um, whenever we find out who did this to you–

Taylor: You know, I think we should– I think we should give her some– some time here. You know, she just– she just woke up. She’s still very fragile.

Steffy: What happened?

Ridge: What happened, the police is trying to put together now. What do you think happened? Do you remember anything? Do you remember someone’s face, maybe, or a car pulling away, anything like that?

Steffy: I…

Taylor: Okay, okay, let’s– let’s not push her. Okay, she needs to rest. The police are gonna be questioning her.

Ridge: I get it, I get all that. There’s a lunatic running around with a gun.

Taylor: I know.

Ridge: I don’t want somebody else’s kid being shot.

Taylor: I know, but–

Sheila: You know, as– as a trained nurse, though, it’s my professional opinion that you don’t want to– you don’t want overstress her. You don’t want to cause anything that might have her regress. What’s most important right now is– is her complete recovery.

Ridge: Steffy, try to remember. Restaurant. The alley. Is there anything– who do you think put you here?

Zende: How you doing over here?

Paris: Um, I’m just trying to imagine moving on without finn and I can’T. I can’t quite get there.

Zende: Yeah, I, um, I know you guys were close.

Paris: I mean, he was so alive. So full of love and laughter, and– and goofiness. Finn was so fun, and a great dad and and amazing partner and husband to steffy. Kind and warm, a healer, and now he’s just gone because of some random robbery?

Zende: It’s crazy.

Paris: I mean, I got to know him when I moved in to steffy’s, and he’s a wonderful guy. And he didn’t deserve this. Being shot dead in an alley and just left there. He didn’t deserve this.

Hope: You know what really hurts? This was the happiest I had ever seen steffy in all her life. With her husband, and her family, and now that’s broken.

Liam: Yeah, she’S… she’s gonna need all of us when she realizes.

Zende: And we’ll be right there for her.

Paris: Yeah. Whatever she needs.

Liam: I guess I just hope that everything that happened to her, you know, getting shot and losing her husband… she’s such a– steffy’s such a fearless person, I just don’t want it to change her, you know?

Paris: It won’T.

Hope: She’s got so many people who love and support her, and we will all be there for her.

Liam: Yeah. And then there’s kelly.

Hope: I know. We got kelly too.

Liam: Put me in a room with the guy who did this, I swear to god.

Paris: Seriously.

Hope: You know what, I think we should focus on the positives. Steffy has regained consciousness. That’s amazing. And now we just need to concentrate on getting her all the way back.

Paris: And for us to pick up the slack in the meantime.

Zende: It’s crazy that we even have to. I mean, steffy should be out there being the boss lady everyone knows and loves. Who would want to shut her down like this?

Ridge: Honey, I know it’s hard but you gotta try. There’s a lunatic out there with a gun. I don’t want anyone else getting hurt. Why were you at il giardino’s?

Steffy: I do not remember.

Ridge: Okay, you have to try to remember, please.

Sheila: Ridge, you know what, this really isn’t–
