Ridge: Humoring paris makes no sense at all.

Carter: It makes sense to me.

Ridge: How does it make– how? How does that make sense to you? You don’t love this woman. You are still in love with my father’s wife. You’re in love with quinn. Tell me I’m wrong.

Eric: I’m fond of carter. I really am. He’s a good man. He deserves everything good in this life. I believe that. I’m sure you believe that too.

Quinn: Of course.

Eric: Yeah. Quinn, come here. Sit. You know carter, you’re friends. He confides in you, right?

Quinn: Sometimes.

Eric: And about paris, obviously because you know more about that than I do.

Quinn: She’s come up.

Eric: Well, so what about this instant engagement? Do you think she’s the woman he really loves? It doesn’t really matter what I think, does it?

Paris: I can’t believe this ring.

Grace: Marriage is more than a flashy ring, honey. It needs a foundation of love and trust and you and carter have not built that.

Paris: How do you know that? Are you with us when we’re alone? Why can’t you just be happy for me?

Grace: I’m sorry, baby. But you’re making a huge mistake and I can’t support it. You and carter, it’s just wrong.

Paris: It doesn’t feel wrong. I hate being at odds with you, mom. But come to the wedding or not, I need to make one thing clear. Nothing and no one is going to stop this wedding.

Eric: But does carter love paris the way a man should love a woman who’s going to spend the rest of his life with? Is that what you’re questioning?

Quinn: He’s the one who proposed.

Eric: Yeah. And so…

Quinn: So, all we can hope is that carter and paris make the right decision.

Paris: Look, mom. I’m not trying to be harsh. I respect your opinion, and you’ve voiced it repeatedly.

Grace: Baby, I’m just worried about you.

Paris: Don’t be. Be happy for me. I mean, the man I love asked me to marry him and gave me this beautiful ring.

Hope: Oh, my god, you and zende are engaged?

Grace: If only. My daughter is engaged to carter.

Hope: Oh, you and carter, married.

Carter: I’m not talking to you about this.

Ridge: Stop. You don’t get to walk away from me. Either we’re friends or we’re not friends. I’m asking you a question. I’m asking you where you are. So tell me the truth. You want to lie to yourself, you go ahead.

Carter: Yes! Yes. I love quinn, and it’s driving me insane. I think about her all the time. How long ’til I get to see her, get close to her. And eric was very generous when he forgave us. But that means that I can’t be with the woman I love, ridge, and it’s stopping me cold, man. And I can’t live like this. I have to move on. I need to marry paris. Migraine hits hard, so u hit back with ubrelvy

Grace: I was just as shocked as you are, hope. They don’t come any better than zende forrester. He’s honest. He’s talented. He’s got a bright future ahead of himself. But somehow, a solid future and security just isn’t good enough. You want to just toss it all away and marry some hustler?

Paris: I’m in love, mom. And carter is too. He wouldn’t have gotten me a ring if that wasn’t the case. So if your take on him is correct, he should have been out there setting his sights on his newest conquest. But instead, he came back with a ring. Doesn’t that tell you something?

Grace: I don’t trust him. I don’t trust him to honor you. I don’t trust him to cherish you. I don’t trust him to make the promises that people make when they marry each other. I’m sorry, baby, but I can’t support you in becoming carter’s wife. It just won’t end well.

Paris: Okay. Well, if you can’t support my choice, then don’t come to the wedding. Now, I would like to talk to hope, please.

Grace: It sounds like you have some reservations of your own. Maybe she’ll listen to you.

Hope: You’re engaged?

Paris: I am.

Hope: I mean, uh… I am not even going to begin to get in the middle of that mother-daughter dynamic because believe me, I know all too well. But… are you happy?

Paris: I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.-Hope: I mean, that ring! It’s gorgeous.

Paris: You know, hope, you’re my friend and I would just really like your support. Please just say you’re happy for me.

Trainer: Ten of ’em. All the way to your chest. There you go. Four, five, five more. Are you ready?

Zende: Yeah.

Trainer: Ten of ’em. Good, good, good, good, good. Boom, good. All right, come on. There you go. There you go. All right. [Indistinct] Right. Good job.

Zende: Thank you, J.

Trainer: Next week.

Zende: You look like you got something on your mind.

Grace: All I have ever wanted from the first day my daughters were born was for them to live good lives. For them to be productive, contributing members of society. And to settle down at some point in their lives with good men of integrity who deserve them. Is that too much for a mother to ask?

Zende: Um, mrs. Buckingham, you have to excuse me. I’m feeling a little lost here. There’s something–

Grace: Carter proposed!

Zende: What?

Grace: And paris said yes. She said yes. You have to stop this travesty, zende. You cannot let this wedding happen.

Eric: That was a little enigmatic.

Quinn: What was?

Eric: That– that you hope carter and paris make the right decision. Does that mean you don’t approve of their wedding?

Ridge: I knew it. You and quinn aren’t over.

Carter: We are over. You need to understand that, ridge. There’s nothing going on and nothing ever will. I will never betray eric again. And as for quinn, she is totally committed to making their marriage work. I’ve accepted that I can’t have her, and it’s tearing me up inside. But I can’t stay frozen in my life. I have to move on.

Ridge: You have to move on with paris.

Carter: She loves me.

Ridge: I’m sure she loves you but you don’t love her. You love quinn. So how is that going to work?

Carter: One day at a time.

Ridge: One day at a time? Where does my dad fit into all this?

Carter: Where’s your father fit? Where does eric fit? With his wife where he belongs. Why do you think I’m doing this? A part of the reason I’m marrying paris is because she became suspicious of my feelings for quinn, because she said things to make me think she’s taking those suspicions to eric. And I refused to let anyone or anything disrupt quinn’s happiness. I brought in ensure max protein,

Ridge: So you’re rushing into a future with paris because you’re desperate to run away from your past with quinn? Am I understanding what we’re doing? Look at me.

Carter: I have to. Quinn’s not a possibility for me. She’s eric’s wife, and I meant what I said. I won’t hurt him again. Need to get on with things.

Ridge: Get on with things? What does that mean to paris? I have an idea. Why don’t you date her for a little while? Take her on a trip. Take her to some– take her to europe. Go to italy. It’s nice this time of year. Spend some time with her. Get to know her, get to know–

Carter: The decision is made. I intend to marry paris as soon as possible. Hopefully, tomorrow. And I need you there. I need my best friend who knows everything about me standing by my side in support. I’m counting on you.

Zende: Carter proposed to paris and she accepted?

Grace I know this must hurt, zende, but you have got to move past this and go to my daughter. Do whatever it takes to get paris back. You still love her. And I can see it right now in your eyes. Please, just don’t let carter take my baby away.

Zende: Dr. Buckingham, listen. I– I get that you mean well, you genuinely seem to think that paris is better off with me than with carter, but the problem is, she doesn’t agree and I’m not going to grovel.

Grace: Zende.

Zende: Dr. Buckingham–

Grace: You just have to go.

Zende: Listen, listen, listen. I thought paris was the one for me. Okay, I did. But somewhere along the line, she got caught up with carter. That doesn’t mean I don’t love her, but she’s made her decision, and I have to respect that. Thank you for letting me know.

Hope: And you’re sure that you and zende…

Paris: Yeah, I mean, great guy, but it just didn’t work out. And I know everything is happening really, really fast.

Hope: And you’re okay with that? Because, I mean, we are talking about the rest of your life here. And don’t get me wrong, again, carter is a terrific guy and any woman would be lucky to have him.

Paris: And you know what? That woman has me. Please don’t try to talk me out of this. No one will. Trust me. And my mom has tried. You can tell she’s not the most supporting person. But hope, you’re my friend. And I would really like your support to celebrate with me and carter on our wedding day. We’d love to have you.

Hope: All right. Well, then, I am going to need to hear you say it just one more time for me. Just one more that you are absolutely 110% sure.

Paris: I love carter. I want to be his wife.

Hope: Okay, then yes. Of course, I will be there. Of course.

Paris: Oh, thank you. Oh. Carter. I hear congratulations are in order. You and paris. You proposed. Wow.

Carter: You can say that again.

Quinn: I really don’t think it’s my place to have an opinion about carter and paris.

Eric: Well, everybody in the company is going to have an opinion about it. You might as well voice yours.

Quinn: I just hope they make the right decision.

Eric: Yeah.

[ Phone dinging ] Oh, I got to go.

Quinn: To the club?

Eric: Yeah, I have– I have an appointment. We’ll talk more later. All right?

Quinn: All right. Well, yeah. Don’t overdo it.

Eric: Okay.

Carter: Eric asked me

to get rid of it,

but how could I?

Quinn: So you brought

it here.

Carter: What else

could I do?

I couldn’t let something

so beautiful get destroyed.

Paris: You know, we have to be careful because my mom might still be in the building somewhere. She’s not taking the engagement well.

Carter: I’m sorry to be the cause of friction between you.

Paris: No, don’t apologize. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. And if she can’t get behind it, that– that– that has to do with her, not me. I’m not going to let her ruin the best day of my life. And we won’t be alone. I talked to hope, and she said she was going to come.

Carter: Well, speaking of the wedding, I meant what I said. I want to get married right away.

Paris: Oh! I just love that you want to marry me so quickly.

Carter: And it can’t happen soon enough.

Paris: Oh, wow. I mean, who should we invite?

Carter: I, uh, I spoke with ridge.

Paris: You know, I was thinking about zende.

Carter: Hmm.

Paris: Just because, I don’t know. I feel like he should be there. I hope he comes. He said he was cool with our relationship. And you saw how gracious he was about it. Oh. Also, I’m thinking about bill spencer. We should invite him.

Carter: Why?

Paris: Well, he’s been very generous to the foundation, and oh, we also need a minister because the man of the hour, he’s going to be occupied.

Carter: Uh… charlie. He’s ordained.

Paris: Get out.

Carter: Yeah. Yeah. I’ll see if he’s available. And um, speaking of the venue, I’m thinking, il giardino?

Paris: Oh.

Carter: You love that place. You love the food, it’s intimate and it was our first sort of lunch date.

Paris: It’s perfect.

Carter: I’ll make the call. Reserve it tomorrow.

Paris: Tomorr– tom– hm. Tomorrow?

Carter: I don’t want to wait.

Paris: I feel like I’m in a whirlwind. Oh. Oh, my goodness. This is really–

Ridge: I’m asking you

a question.

I’m asking you where you are.

So tell me the truth.

You want to lie to yourself,

you go ahead.

Carter: Yes! Yes!

I love quinn,

and it’s driving me insane.

Carter: Yes. Last name, walton. Yes. The wedding. Thank you very much. Yeah. Okay. Okay. I’ll call back later with more specifics. Thank you.

Quinn: Sorry, I– I… I couldn’t help overhearing. Making arrangements. Paris and I are getting married at il giardino. Tomorrow.

Quinn: Tomorrow? Tomorrow?

Carter: I can’t go on like this one more day, quinn. Loving you the way I do. Burning for you and what I can never have again. I mean, you have eric, you’re committed to your marriage. Me, I’m stuck in place and I have to move forward. I have to build a life that doesn’t begin and end with a woman who’s out of my reach… yet close enough to touch. This is torture.

Quinn: Sorry. You have no idea how sorry I am. But don’t marry paris so quickly.

Carter: Don’t, don’t, don’t, stop. Do not try to stop me. Do not try to slow me down, quinn, I have to let you go. I can’t live like this anymore. But make no mistake. I will always love you.

[ Quinn sobbing ]

Quinn: I’ll always love you too, carter.

Zende: I don’t know. I don’t wanna lose the structure, but, uh, it looks too restrained, still.

Ridge: What are you doing? The design is perfect.

Zende: Maybe I can alter the lines, make it look a little bit more slim–

Ridge: Zende, zende, what’s our job? Our job is to highlight the individual, which is exactly what you did. Right, petra?

Petra: Nothing makes me feel more beautiful than a forrester.

Ridge: Oh, boy. Especially this forrester right here, huh?

Petra: Oh, no, was my flirting that obvious?

Zende: You were flirting with me?

Petra: Well, not if you’re still seeing paris.

Zende: Uh, no, actually, I’m– I’m not. Ris is seeing somebody else.

[ Carter sighing ]

Quinn: You shouldn’t be

talking like this, carter.

You’re caring, and handsome,

and passionate.

You’ve really made a difference

in my life at a time

when I didn’t think anyone

could make me feel better,

you did.

[ Paris gasping ]

Paris: Oh! There you are, my very, very handsome fiancé!

Quinn: I want you

to be truly happy.

Carter: You make me truly

happy, you know that.

You know how bad I want you.

But I can’t have you.

I can’t have us, it– it’s

a fantasy that can never be.

Quinn: That doesn’t mean

that you should propose

to paris. You don’t love her.

Not the way a man

is supposed to love

a woman he wants to spend

the rest of his life with.

Carter: The way I love you?

And I do love you, quinn.

I love you so damn much.

I’ll always love you.

Eric: Quinn, I’m thinking of ordering in for lunch. You want something?

Quinn: No, thank you. I’m not hungry.

Eric: You okay? You’re kinda quiet. It’s kinda of, uh, quiet quinn day here.

Quinn: Just thinking.

Eric: Yeah. About, um, the conversation we had the other day?

Quinn: I was just… thinking about how things can change. How you can make one mistake and it can change the direction of your entire life. Hohard it is, to find your way back. I was thinking about our marriage, and how it made me feel. I felt so sure of myself. Like I belonged here. I just– I want to feel that way again. And I hope you do, too.

Ridge: So, I don’t mean to pry, but, uh, but how are you doing with this whole paris thing?

Zende: I’m okay.

Ridge: Yeah. You’re going out?

Zende: Been out a couple days.

Ridge: Guy like you, you should be out every night.

Zende: Listen, uncle. It’s not really my thing. I’m looking for a more meaningful connection.

Ridge: Like what you had with paris. I’m here if you need to talk. I mean, I– I can see how much you miss her.

Quinn: Listen to me. Getting all heavy. You going to the club today?

Eric: I’m not sure. I haven’t decided yet.

Quinn: You get so much enjoyment from being there. I’m surprised you don’t go there every single day.

Grace: Take your lips off my daughter.

Paris: Mom, you– you can–

Grace: I’m your mother. So yes, I can. Take your hands off my girl.

Carter: You haven’t told her?

Paris: Well… um. Look, mom. I asked you to please just stay out of this.

Grace: Not when I know this isn’t what you want. This man is not serious about you. You cannot depend on him. The future you want is not going to be with carter.

Paris: It’s already happening. (Asaad) when I was little,

Ridge: So did you ever pick up anything between carter and paris?

Zende: No, you?

Ridge: No, I– grace came in here, [Indistinct], And I– I didn’t believe it.

Zende: Yeah, uh, let me guess, she asked you to stop it, huh?

Ridge: Mm hm. She definitely wasn’t as okay with it as you are.

Zende: “Okay with it” might be a bit of a stretch, ridge.

Ridge: Did carter misunderstand you?

Zende: No. I mean, I told them that I would not stand in their way, and I meant it. If carter can make paris happy, then I wish them all the best. But… thinking about them together is tough, especially remembering all the things that he said to me when I used to talk to him about her. I mean, he’s my friend, right?

Ridge: I know, I’m having trouble with that too.

Zende: I’m not going to rip on the guy.

Ridge: I’m not either. But I do have questions.

Eric: Quinn, if you’re wondering if you and I feel the same, the same way, I think we do.

Quinn: That’s good to hear.

Eric: Everyone wants to feel appreciated and secure, especially in their relationships.

Quinn: True.

Eric: But what about love? And passion? I mean, those are the two things that– that connect you to someone that only the two of you share. You can’t just– snap your fingers and– and– and make that happen no matter how much you want to. Building a lasting relationship it takes trust and it’s built over time.

Eric: I agree.

Quinn: Well, you’d think that would be obvious to everybody.

Eric: By everybody, you mean carter?

Quinn: What?

Eric: You mentioned carter, the other day. Um, there’s something that you’re concerned about, a decision he’s about to make.

Quinn: I don’t want to talk about carter. I don’t– I don’t wanna upset you.

Eric: No, no, no. That’s all right. I mean, if there’s something going on with carter, I want to know about it.

Grace: What’s that on your finger?

Paris: The most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen in my life. Carter asked me to marry him last night, and guess what I said? We want to get married right away.

Grace: Right away?

Paris: Yeah. Carter says he can pull this wedding off this week, so–

Grace: This week?

Carter: I’d marry your daughter today, if I could.

Grace: No, this is not happening.

Paris: What?

Grace: Take the ring off, and give it back.

Paris: Mom.

Grace: I won’t let you do this, paris.

Paris: I’m not asking for permission. I’m sharing my good news with you.

Grace: And what’s good about it? My beautiful daughter is giving her heart away to a man who’s done very little to earn it.

Paris: Carter and I kept our attraction private in the beginning–

Grace: Because you knew it was wrong.

Paris: Why can’t you just be happy for me?

Grace: I would be. If I thought carter was the right man for you, but he isn’T.

Paris: That’s not your decision to make.

Grace: Aren’t you going to say anything?

Carter: Grace, I know this may seem fast, but I’m certain this is the right path. I want to start our future with your daughter right now.

Grace: That’s what I need you to explain. What’s the rush to get my daughter to the altar?

With less moderate-to-severe


Grace: If you’re so certain about your future with paris, why not take your time? Give her a real courtship?

Paris: What does that even mean?

Grace: It means you deserve more than a ring and a promise, honey. Have you even talked about it? Have you made any plans? Or did this proposal just come out of the blue?

Paris: Carter loves me, and he wants me to be his wife. I am so sorry this is happening.

Carter: No, she’s trying to protect you. I understand.

Paris: She’s not being fair.

Grace: I just asked a simple question.

Paris: Carter answered it. If we both know what we wanna do, there’s no reason to wait.

Grace: Oh, I could think of quite a few reasons.

Paris: Carter. I need to speak to my mom in private.

Carter: It’s okay.

Grace: That man wants to run off and do a quickie wedding. Do you not have the sense to stop and think and ask yourself why? Come on, baby. This is wrong. This whole thing is wrong.

Quinn: It’s not my place to judge carter, or his personal decisions.

Eric: So this doesn’t involve the company?

Quinn: Well, I mean it– it could have ramifications for the company. I– I didn’t talk to you about it because I thought carter would come to his senses, but clearly he hasn’t!

Eric: Whoa, whoa, what do you mean, what’s he done? He took a ring that I was working on and he gave it to paris as an engagement ring.

Eric: He proposed?

Quinn: Yeah.

Eric: Well– I know that– that zende and paris broke it off, I know that, but– but, uh, I had no idea that carter and paris felt this way about each other.

Quinn: I know. It’s surprising. That’s why I was so concerned. And– and, look, I- I know that– that paris, she’s obviously smitten with carter, but I– I don’t I don’t think that carter feels the same way about her.

Eric: Why? I mean, he proposed.

Quinn: Yes, but he just wants to move on with his life and– and meet someone. He wants to build a future with someone.

Eric: And you don’t think paris is the one? Has he said anything to you to make you question his commitment to paris? Do you think he’s not in love with her?

Carter: Got specs for the new sewing equipment.

Ridge: Hold on a second. Close the doors. I was just talking to zende about you.

Carter: How’s he doing?

Ridge: You know, he’s having trouble accepting your relationship with paris.

Carter: Hm. Well, he’s not the only one.

Ridge: Grace buckingham is not a fan.

Carter: Heh. No. And I’m sorry she dragged you into this–

Ridge: Let me ask you something. Why did I have to hear from her, that there’s a new woman in your life?

Carter: Well, I wasn’t sure how to tell you.

Ridge: Well, maybe you’re just not sure. Is that what you want? Really? A future with paris?

Carter: I have to, now.

Ridge: You have to, now? What does that mean?

Carter: I proposed to her. I asked paris to be my wife. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Grace: I wish I could be overjoyed for you. I really do.

Paris: You’re not even trying, though. You took one look at the ring and you said, “no, this is not happening.”

Grace: Because I’m concerned, honey. You know how I feel about carter. His history with your sister and with eric forrester’s wife! And now he proposes to you out of nowhere?

Paris: I get it. You want me to be with zende.

Grace: This isn’t going to end well. You have to trust me on this.

Paris: Carter is not dad.

Grace: I know my failed marriage with your father has a lot to do with it. And I wish I could have taught you and your sister what a loving and committed relationship looks like. But I wish you weren’t so blinded by big talk.

Paris: It’s not big talk. Carter really wants to be with me. I’m his future.

Grace: Honey, he’s saying all the right words. But I’m just not buying it. There is something else going on here.

Quinn: Do I think carter loves paris?

Eric: Well, yeah, of course he does. He proposed to her.

Quinn: Yeah. That’s a– it’s usually a pretty good indication.

Eric: Yeah, it’s just surprising at how fast it was, how quickly it happened.

Quinn: Yeah, that’s what I mean. I mean, paris is– is getting out of one relationship and jumping into a marriage.

Eric: Well, it’s pretty impulsive. I know it– it seems that way, but, uh, carter has been looking for a– a relationship and love for a very long time, and if he– he thinks he’s found it with paris, then good, then good. I’m glad he’s going for it.

Quinn: Yeah, well, love can make you do some pretty crazy, reckless things.

Eric: Yeah, it can. But what better reason than, uh, than love to do something reckless? So if this works out between the two of them, this is where it’s going, then good for them. I’m happy. I hope it works out.

Ridge: You proposed to paris? You kidding me?

Carter: Why– why? Why would I kid about that?

Ridge: Uh– no one even knows that you’re dating.

Carter: We kept our relationship private.

Ridge: You kept it secret.

Carter: Okay, well, not anymore.

Ridge: Not anymore. Because you are getting married. What are you– she was with zende five minutes ago, and now you– you guys– what? You’ve been dating a couple of weeks? What’s–

Carter: What’s the matter? Why should we wait? For what? We’re not gonna change. What’s gonna change in a month? In a year? Not my feelings. Not what I want, ridge. That’s why I’m proposing. I want to move on. I want to move forward. I wanna start living a life that makes sense.

Ridge: This makes sense?

Carter: Yes. Yes, it does. It’s the first thing in a very long time. And you know what? I’m– I’m not debating with you. I get why grace and zende may have issues, but I was counting on my best friend to be supportive.

Ridge: I am going to be supportive. I’ll support you as soon as I understand what it is that you’re doing. You’ve been telling me for years you’re waiting for this one woman, the woman that makes your heart skip a beat. The woman that you see in your dreams. Is that paris? Is it? She’s the love of your life?

Eric: It’s okay, quinn. I know you still care about carter. And you’re worried. You don’t think that paris is the woman he truly loves?

Ridge: Paris is a beautiful young woman and she’s kind. And I– I know you respect her. But I know you don’t love her. Cause I know what you look like when you’re in love. I’ve seen that on you. I’ve seen you with my father’s wife. You love quinn.

Sheila: So much for finn needing his medication.

Li: He does. He does. I was just calling the pharmacy.

Sheila: Liar! You were calling the cops. You think you can just double cross me and turn me in? You made a big mistake, li. A big mistake.

[ Keys rattling ]

[ Door unlatching ]

[ Brooke gasping ]

Brooke: Oh! Oh, my god. Ridge. God, you scared me.

Ridge: You scared me? How do you not– oh, okay. I’m– I’m sorry. At least the door was locked. Good.

Brooke: Yeah. I’m not taking any chances right now.

Ridge: You can’T.

Ridge: I don’t know. Just thought I’d check on you.

Quinn: Oh, look at that view.

Wyatt: Right?

Quinn: Oh, I’m so glad that you and flo were able to spend some time with each other while you were traveling for work.

Wyatt: Yeah.

Quinn: And I have to say, I am very glad that you’re back, because it’s very hard to meddle in your life when you’re so far away.

Wyatt: Yeah. I hate depriving you of your favorite pastime. Speaking of which, I couldn’t help but notice.

Quinn: Notice?

Wyatt: We got back yesterday, and I didn’t have the deluge of messages that I usually get from you. I had to reach out to you.

Quinn: Yeah. I’m really trying hard to work on that thing you keep bringing up. It starts with a B. Ba… bow… boun…

Paris: I… I don’t know what to say. You– you mean this? You really?

Carter: I do. Well, actually, the I do part comes later, if you say yes now, so will you, paris, will you be my wife? Let’s do this, come on. Let’s get married so we can move on with our lives.

Wyatt: Mom, do you think it’s wise to be worried about carter? And please tell me that worried isn’t a euphemism because–

Quinn: I am fully committed to eric. Carter and I are still friends and I still care about him.

Wyatt: Okay. So why are you worried?

Quinn: Because he’s about to make a mistake. One that’s going to change his life forever.

Paris: This is blowing my mind right now. This is the last thing I expected. You want to get married? This is something I never thought I’d consider until I was older and to someone that I haven’t been dating for a very long time. And to someone who told me I should marry someone else.

Carter: And I never should have done that, but– but maybe I had to push you away because it got me to realize how much I need you, paris. And I do. I need you. More than I can express.

Paris: I need you too.

[ Paris sighing ] Let’s do it.

Carter: What, does that mean?

Paris: Yes.

Carter: Yes?

Paris: Very.

[ Paris laughing ] Oh, my goodness. We’re going to get married.

Brooke: So, you really came here just to check on me?

Ridge: Yeah, I’m worried knowing how sheila feels about you.

Brooke: I’m worried, too. She’s probably halfway across the country by now.

Ridge: Probably. But we can’t let our guard down.

Brooke: I won’T. Thank you for looking out for me.

Ridge: Always.

Sheila: I should have known not to trust you.

Li: I don’t– I don’t understand. You thought I was calling the police?

Sheila: Why don’t you just cut it? Because I heard you say that it was an emergency.

Li: I mean it is. Finn needs his medication. I was just making sure the pharmacy, it was clear that it was a dire situation.

Sheila: Oh, it’s dire, all right. Extremely dire for you. I warned you not to do anything stupid, but no, you just couldn’t help yourself, could you? No, you had to lie to me! Making your little phone call. Now, you’re going to pay for it.

Dry skin is

sensitive skin, too.

Wyatt: Man, I got to say, it’s making me kind of nervous. You having all these big opinions on who carter should marry? But if you’re telling me that you and eric aren’t really connecting right now, then why aren’t you focusing on that? Why aren’t you investing in your own love life? Not carter’S. Unless… you still have feelings for him? That’s why you’re calling this thing a whole big mistake.

Quinn: Well, of course, I still have feelings for carter, and I always will. I know what happened between us was wrong, but it– it doesn’t negate what he meant to me. That he’s a remarkable human being and that I want the best for him.

Wyatt: Oh, that’s just not paris, though, right?

Quinn: Mayingrromebody you don’t love, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

Wyatt: I’m sorry, what?

Quinn: You know what? Forget it.

Wyatt: What did you just say?

Quinn: Forget I said anything.

Wyatt: Why do you think that carter is not in love with paris? You don’t– you don’t think it. You know it. Don’t you? Carter’s still in love with you?

Paris: Carter. We’re engaged. We need to make it official. Forgot to put the ring on my finger.

Carter: Right.

[ Carter laughing ]

Paris: Oh, wow. Ah!

[ Both laughing ]

Brooke: I called and warned hope about sheila, and she said that you already told them. Thank you.

Ridge: Of course. We all have to be on the lookout. We don’t know where this lunatic is going to show up next.

Li: If you do anything to hurt me, anything to make it so I can’t care for him, he won’t survive.

Sheila: I think he’s going to be just fine without you.

Li: I realize you used to be a nurse, but you don’t want to do this by yourself. He needs both of us.

Sheila: All of a sudden, you’re feeling cooperative? Am I supposed to forget that you just tried to call the police?

Li: I wasn’t thinking clearly.

Sheila: No. No, you weren’T.

Li: But I am now. I’m thinking about finn, putting his needs first. It’s foolish of me getting the police involved with all the questions they’d ask. Finn’s just waking up. I don’t want to do anything to cause his backslide. You don’t– you don’t know how hard it’s been for me, doing this on my own. Worrying about him when I have to be elsewhere. But now, now I don’t have to worry because you’re caring for him while I go get his medicine. I guess it’s a huge relief. Sheila, we can do this. We can bring our son back.

Sheila: You’re lying.

Li: No!

Sheila: You don’t want me here. You don’t want me anywhere near our son. My son. I wanted to believe you. I wanted to believe everything that you were saying. That we could both be mothers to finn. Him needing me just as much as he does you.

Li: Finn needs you? The woman who shot him? Almost killed him?

[ Li grunting ] When pain says, “it’s time to go home”

[ Li grunting ]

Sheila: It didn’t have to be this way. You did this, li. You!

Li: Let go. Let go.

Sheila: And you treat me like I’m a monster. Like, I don’t love my son because I do! More than you will ever know.

[ Sheila grunting ]

Li: Like you love finn. Not like his real mother does.

[ Li grunting ] Get off! No!

Sheila: No! You’re not going to get away from me. Never get away from me!

Wyatt: I mean– I mean, I can’t believe this. You and carter are still–

Quinn: Nothing is going on. I swear.

Wyatt: You guys are covering up your real feelings for each other, and you’re saying that’s nothing?

Quinn: Nothing that’s ever going to be acted on. My commitment is to eric.

Wyatt: Oh, so carter’s just going to go find a similar commitment, is that it? He’s so desperate to run away from his feelings for you that he’s just going to go marry paris?

Quinn: Yes, exactly! Now you see why I’m so concerned.

Wyatt: Now you see why I’m so concerned, mom.

Quinn: I can’t let him do this. Wyatt, I can’t let him throw his life away!

Wyatt: Mom.

Quinn: Because of me!

Paris: This is beautiful. Does my fiancé have great taste or what? Oh, my god. I have a fiancé!

Carter: I’m glad you like it. I knew it was meant for the woman I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with.

Paris: I can’t believe this is happening.

Carter: Honestly, neither can I.

[ Carter sighing ] You know what? You know what? I don’t want to wait.

Paris: What?

Carter: Why wait? Why have some long, drawn out engagement? We both know what we want, right? Let’s get married right away.

Ridge: No, honestly. How is that possible? How do you not– okay. Fine. As soon as you hear anything, please give me a call.

Brooke: No leads?

Ridge: No. Baker doesn’t know anything. He doesn’t know where sheila is. And it bothers me not knowing what she’s up to.

Brooke: Or who she’ll target next.

Li: Oh.

[ Li groaning ] Come on. Come on. Oh. Oh, god. Oh, god no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no. No, no, no, no, no.

Sheila: No. No, damn it.

[ Engine thrumming ]

Mike: Hey, pretty lady. Got your message. Do you ever think that we have that kind of friendship where we can go years without talking and then just pick up right–

Sheila: Yeah, [Indistinct] I can’t talk right now. I need your car.

Mike: What?

Sheila: I need your car.

[ Engine turning over ]

[ Engine thrumming ] We really had our hands full with our two-year-old.

Carter: Be a good husband. Paris, be a good wife and a home.

Quinn: You did it. You proposed? Why, carter? Why?

Carter: It’s the way it has to be.

Quinn: But you don’t love her.

Carter: But I can’t have you. And I can’t have paris threatening your marriage, questioning our feelings for each other. So, that’ll stop now.

Quinn: She’s probably going to question you more now that she’s gonna be your wife.

Carter: No, because I’ll be devoted to her. I will. I will be devoted to her, quinn. This is what I want. I want to settle down. I want a family.

Quinn: So that’s your plan?

Carter: I don’t have a plan outside of moving on with my life. Quinn, I’ll do anything to put you behind me. I can’t live like this anymore. I love you too much.

Ridge: Okay. I got to go. You see anything unusual, you hear anything unusual, you call me.

Brooke: Well, I think first I’ll call the police and then I’ll call you.

Ridge: Okay. Yeah, that makes sense. I will do everything in my power to protect you, you know that, right? Okay.

[ Li panting ]

[ Car honking ]

Li: Damn it, sheila!

[ Li yelling ] God!

[ Car honking ]

Sheila: You’re never going to get away from me. All you had to do was share him. Let us both be mothers.

Li: [Indistinct] Get some help. You’re going to prison, sheila. Even if I have to go too.

Sheila: You think you can call the police and send me away? No.

Li: I’ll protect my son. Protect him from you.

Sheila: I’m never going to be separated from my son again. Never.

[ Li panting ] I’m coming for you.

[ Car honking ]

Li: Back off you crazy bitch!

[ Car thudding ]

[ Explosion ]

[ Li shouting ]

[ Sheila and li gasping ]

Li: Oh my god, finn! See? My beautiful, sweet boy.

Sheila: You’re coming back to us.

Li: Ahuh, he is. It’s mom. Both your mothers.

Sheila: What– he’s trying to say something.

Finn: S—

Li: What is– what is it, sweetheart? What– what are you– what are you trying to tell us?

Liam: Man, I’m still– I– I’m not over the whole eric and donna thing, that’s–

Hope: Yeah, no, I am just as shocked as you are. I mean, I’ve– I’ve– I saw it and then I confronted donna. And–

Liam: I mean– eric’s a married man and I– you know, I know that he and quinn have had their issues, but I kinda thought that they were on the other side of that. And now you’re saying–

Hope: No, I’m saying that I wish I never walked in on that because I hate knowing what I know now! And– and that conversation with eric, it wasn’t easy.

Liam: Yeah, well, that couldn’t have been easy for either one of you, if he’s betraying his wife.

Hope: Just follow

your heart, eric.

Whether you tell quinn

the truth and recommit

to your marriage to her,

or you tell her the truth,

and you let her go.

I just think you and I both

know that the important thing

is– is that the truth is told.

Quinn: Give me the ring back, carter.

Carter: No.

Quinn: Don’t do it.

Carter: It has to be this way.

Quinn: Don’t give that ring to paris. Don’t do something you’re going to regret. Carter, please listen.

Carter: No, no, no. If I– if I go to paris with this, I’ll be able to move on. I’ll turn the page. I have a chance at happiness.

Quinn: I want that for you. I want you to be truly happy.

Carter: You make me truly happy. You know that. You know how bad I want you. But I can’t have you. I can’t have us, quinn. It’s– it’s just a fantasy that can never be.

Quinn: That may be. But that doesn’t mean that you should propose to paris. You don’t love her. Not the way a man is supposed to love a woman, he wants to spend the rest of his life with!

Carter: The way I love you? And I do love you, quinn. I love you so damned much. I’ll always love you.

Hope: You know, I believe that wedding vows should be respected. And I’m not condoning what eric and donna are doing.

Liam: Are you about to say, “but…”?

Hope: Well, it’s just– it is evident that things have not been the same since quinn and carter had their affair. And you should have heard the way that eric and donna were talking about each other–

Liam: I mean, I– I’ve heard the whole thing about how eric is donna’s one true love, and I just don’t– I mean, does he feel the same way about her?

Hope: I think he might. But donna begged me not to say anything. What are you going to do?

[ Knocking on door ]

Liam: Hey.

Ridge: Hey. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to just burst in, but, uh, you need to know this.

Liam: What’s up?

Ridge: Sheila has escaped.

Li: It’s okay, son. Don’t exert yourself.

Sheila: Oh, I’m just so happy you’re awake.

Li: Yeah.

Finn: So.. stef– steffy–

[ Groaning ]

Sheila: Finn, baby. Stay with us, come on, don’t– don’t go.

Li: It’s okay. It’s okay. He needs his rest. Yeah.

Sheila: Steffy! He said, “steffy.” He’s going to make it, li, against all odds, finn is gonna pull through. Oh my god. I didn’t– I didn’t kill my son. I– I’m gonna have another opportunity to be a mother to him. Yeah, baby. Age-related macular degeneration may lead to severe vision loss.

Quinn: Don’t go to paris

with that ring.

Don’t do something

you’ll regret.

Something you’ll regret.



Paris: Hey. I got your text. You were looking for me?

Carter: Yeah, um, close the door. Okay?

Paris: Is everything okay?

Carter: No. No, but, uh, can be.

Paris: Yeah. I don’t understand.

Carter: I don’t want to wait, paris. I don’t want to put our future on hold any longer.

Eric: I wasn’t expecting you home so soon. I thought you had a meeting with the supplier later.

Quinn: I rescheduled it.

Eric: Yeah– oh, at the last minute? Like that?

Quinn: Yeah, uh, it’s okay. Franco didn’t mind. Do you?

Eric: No. Why would you think I would?

Quinn: Nothing. Nothing. It’s just– it’s– it’s been one of those days.

Eric: Are you all right? Something happened at the office?

Quinn: I’m just– uh, I’m worried about carter.

Eric: Carter? Why?

Quinn: I– you know what? Forget it. I– I am sorry that I even brought it up. I don’t– I don’t want to talk about that. In fact, uh, let’s not talk at all. You know, eric, I hope that we can find our way back to to way– to the way we were, you know, when you hung that portrait of me over the fireplace.

Hope: Do they know about the guard, or whoever it was inside that helped her?

Ridge: The police? I don’t think the police knows anything other than sheila’s running around out there somewhere.

Liam: Okay, but we– we’re we’re, like, absolutely sure that– that sheila doesn’t know where steffy and the kids are?

Ridge: Yeah, we– we are absolutely sure. That’s what I told you. If I thought that they were in danger, I’d be over there. Trust me.

Hope: Well, you said that mom knows, but does li know what’s going on? Has anyone talked to her?

Ridge: I– I left a message. Haven’t heard back from her.

Liam: I mean, might be worth trying her again.

Sheila: Is– is finn all right? He– he was conscious. And then he slipped back under, you’ve– you’ve got to do something, li. Our son needs you. I– I need you.

[ Phone ringing ] Why is ridge calling you?

Li: I– I don’t know.

Sheila: Well, don’t answer it.

Li: If I ignore ridge’s calls or texts, he’s going to get suspicious.

Sheila: Yeah, well. I don’t care. It’s too risky.

Li: You don’t trust me? Sheila, like I said, I don’t want to contact the police. I’d end up in jail myself. That– then what would happen to finn, huh? He needs me. He needs us. We can’t turn against each other now.

[ Phone ringing ]

Sheila: All right, answer. But you keep it on speaker. I want to hear everything ridge has to say.

Li: Hello, ridge.

Ridge: Li, hey, uh,

thanks for picking up.

Li: Um, I’ve been busy.

Ridge: Did you get my message?

Li: Yes. That sheila has escaped?

Ridge: Yes. And has she tried to get in touch with you? Make contact in any way?

Li: No. Sheila hasn’t contacted me. I haven’t seen or heard from her. I can’t believe it. But if I see anything, I’ll call you.

Ridge: All right, and– try to keep in mind that she’s very dangerous.

Li: I know. Thank you, ridge.

[ Machines beeping ]

Sheila: Thank you. I really want to believe that everything you have said, you’ve– you’ve meant. But I also want you to believe how much I love our son. You understand that now, don’t you, li? If the peanut butter in a reese’s could talk

Paris: Our future?

Carter: Yes. Yes, it’s waiting for us, paris, we just have– we have to reach out and take it. I’m ready. Are you?

Paris: Of– of course I’m ready. I told you that before, but–

Carter: It– it still feels like it’s coming out of nowhere.

Paris: Before today, I didn’t think we were going to end up together. But I hadn’t given up hope. I mean, you were the one that was so adamant–

Carter: I know, I know. I know. I– I was deluding myself. I– I wasn’t seeing things the way they really are.

Paris: Are you sure this is what you really want? I’m absolutely sure. This is what I need.

Eric: Quinn, you’re still that same beautiful woman. You haven’t changed.

Quinn: But our marriage has. I feel it. And I know you do, too. It’s probably why you spend so much time at the club instead of wanting to be here with me. And, you know, I don’t– I don’t blame you. I know this is my fault. I know that I’m the reason for the strain in our marriage.

Eric: Quinn.

Quinn: No, it’s okay. I don’t want to hide from the truth. But, eric, you need to know, despite what’s going on between us, I believe in us, in our future. And I hope you do, too.

Li: How can anyone not love finn? Decent, kind, caring young man he is.

Sheila: Those are attributes that he got from you. I’ll be forever grateful for the mother that you were. That you are, li. Forever thankful for bringing our son back.

Li: He still has a long, uncertain road ahead of him.

Sheila: Yeah, between the two of us, I– I know that we can nurse him back to health. I– we– we can love him back to what he was before this horrible thing happened. Yeah, it was risky for me to come here, but I had to know what you did with my son. Had to know if you buried him, or if you were holding on to his ashes, because– I wanted to say my final goodbye. But then, this– I– I found out he’s alive. Finally, this– this crushing burden that I– I’ve been living with, it’s– it’s– it’s like it’s been lifted. And finally, there’s something to be hopeful for.

Li: I need to get medicine for finn. I have to leave. For copd,

Carter: I should have done this before now. Moved forward with you. But I’m ready, I’m ready to– to turn the page. I’m ready for a new chapter. A new chapter where I can– I can build something wonderful with you, paris. Something that starts with this.

Paris: Is– is that what I think it is?

Carter: Yeah, yeah, yeah. It’s an engagement ring.

Paris: You want to marry me?

Carter: Say yes. Say– say you’ll be my wife.

Quinn: Sorry, I didn’t mean to bring all this up.

Eric: No, no, don’t apologize. You have every right. This is your marriage.

Quinn: This is our marriage. This is our future, as husband and wife. I miss you. Miss us.

Eric: I know.

Quinn: I believe that we have a marriage that’s worth fighting for. And I want to know that you feel the same way.

Liam: Hey, kids okay?

Hope: Yeah.

Liam: Yeah. Well, here’s hoping the next phone call you get is baker saying they caught sheila.

Hope: Just wonder where she could be.

Ridge: The only thing we know for sure is that sheila is out there. We got to find her. Put her behind bars before she causes any more havoc.

Li: Did you hear me, sheila? I need to get medicine for finn.

Sheila: You think you’re going to just walk out that door?

Li: Yes. And you’re going to let me. Because you know what will happen if you don’T. Finn will die. And that I won’t allow. I sacrificed too much to save our son.

Sheila: You know what? Then I’m going to go. I will go to the pharmacy and pick up finn’s medications.

Li: You don’t have access to the hospital pharmacy, sheila. I do. Plus, there are cops everywhere looking for you. This can’t wait. Finn came to. He’s so close to returning to us. All his progress will be ruined if I don’t get his medication today. Now.

Sheila: I understand that, it– but it’s just too–

Li: Look, I know why you’re hesitating. You heard me on the phone with ridge. I could have told them you’re here, but I didn’T. Like I said, I have so much to lose here. I’d end up in jail, separated from finn. And I don’t want that. And I know you don’t want to be separated from him either. But we both will, if finn doesn’t get his medication. We could lose him forever, sheila. Let me go. Our son’s life depends on it.

Sheila: All right, you go and get finn’s medications.

[ Machines beeping ] I’m trusting you.

[ Exhaling ]

[ Dialing ]

Li: Yes, I need to speak with someone. It’s an emergency. Okay, come on. No– no, I can’t hold. This is extremely important, I–

Li: Then he met Steffy, and the Forresters, which brought you into his life.  I haven’t had been nursing him back to life, day and night for you to just swoop in here, and tell me what–

[ Finn groaning ]

Li:  Finn! Ha– honey! Can you hear me? Finn, sweetheart! Oh, my goodness. Yes, keep– sweetheart, yes, it’s Mom. Hi. Finn! Oh, Finn, it’s Mom. Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Oh! Open your eyes. Finn! [ Li grunting ]

Sheila: Hi, baby.

[ Machines beeping ]

Sheila: Mama’s right here, baby. I love you so much. It’s your mother. I’m right here by your side. Mama’s right here, baby.

Ridge: Where could Sheila be?

Taylor: I can’t believe she escaped.

Ridge: She’s running around in L.A., putting everyone in jeopardy.

Taylor: Ridge, remember, ju– all of Sheila’s crimes are revenge from–

Ridge: Oh, I remember. I know, Taylor. They had her in custody. They had her! And now she’s gone. How does that happen?

[ Knocking on door ]

Hope: Eric?

Eric: Hope! Hi. I, uh, I remember. You had to talk about the– the new collection? That’s good, come in. Come in.

Hope: Yes, I do wanna have a discussion about that at some point, but that’s actually not why I’m here. Are we, um, are we alone?

Eric: Yes.

Hope: I know the real reason why you’ve been going to the club. I overheard you and Donna. And I saw you and Donna, and– what are you thinking? I mean, you’re having an affair with her while you’re still married to Quinn.

Carter: Nothing sparkles quite like you, Quinn.

Carter: I mean it, Quinn. You give that gem a run for its money.

Quinn: You always say the sweetest things to me, Carter.

Carter: Yeah, I know I’m not supposed to, but sometimes I can’t help myself.

Quinn: Mm, well, I’m never gonna turn down a compliment.

Carter: So you, um, you spoke with BRidget earlier. Any updates about Eric’s health?

Quinn: I explained to her my concerns about Eric’s heart rate going through the roof.

Carter: Oh, so she knows about the ring he’s been wearing?

Quinn: Well, yeah, I had to tell her, you know, so she could understand my concerns, and– tell me if there was anything I needed to be worried about, but I– I also asked her not to say anything to Eric, and she promised she wouldn’t. But I don’t know, I, uh, I feel badly, you know, I don’t– I don’t want to keep any secrets from Eric.

Hope: I spoke with Donna, and she confirmed everything, and– I don’t– guess I came over here so I could hear your side of things.

Eric: My side of things?

Hope: Well, obviously, you know, I believe in the sanctity of marriage. And I thought you did, too. So, uh, what happened?

Eric: What happened? Hope, I’m not a bad person. I know it’s wrong. Donna knows it’s wrong too. I’m just, uh, not at all sure that I’m going to be able to exactly explain to you what happened, or how I, uh, how I got here. But here is where I am.

Ridge: I feel so powerless.

Taylor: I know. I know. Me too. But the police said that they’re going to find her. We have to trust that–

Ridge: Our police? The police said that? Now, that’s great. I don’t– that’s not good enough. What are we supposed to do? Just sit around, and wait for information?

Taylor: I don’t know. They’re going to find her.

Ridge: They’re going to find her, where? Where’s she gonna– she doesn’t have anyone here. No friends, no family.

Taylor: All right, let’s– let’s try to stay calm. She can’t hide forever, Ridge.

Sheila: Yes. I’m right here. It’s your mother. Yes. Yes. Come on. That’s good. That’s good. Stay awake. Stay with me, okay? Finn? Finn? Oh, no– no, no, no. No, no, no, no. No, I can’t lose you. Please, Finn, please. You’ve got to wake up. You’ve got to wake up. Oh, god. Oh, god. What to do?

[ Li groaning ]

Eric: Hope, I’m not comfortable cheating on my wife. But what can I say? Donna brings something wonderful to my life.

Hope: So, then what is this really about? I mean, is this about Quinn, and her affair with Carter? Because I thought you forgave her.

Eric: I did. I forgave her.

Hope: I– I know you were hurt by it and you felt betrayed by her, but– I don’t know. Maybe those feelings of deception are– are still there.

Quinn: Well. You’re here just in time. I– just got my latest batch of gemstones.

Carter: Wow. They’re beautiful.

Quinn: Yeah, they are. Some really stand out.

Ridge: I can’t just stand around here. I need some answers.

[ Dialing ]

[ Phone ringing ]

Baker: Deputy Chief Baker.

Ridge: Hey, Baker. Have you found Sheila yet?

Baker: Unfortunately, no. Sheila Carter’s still a fugitive.

Ridge: Any leads at all or–

Baker: Not yet.

Ridge: So, explain something. She walked out of your jail. No one has any clue what happened. Don’t you have cameras there? You do, right?

Baker: We’re reviewing everything we have. She never showed up at the hotel that she was staying at. We spoke with Deacon Sharpe. He hasn’t seen or heard from her. We have an A.P.B. out for her arrest.

Ridge: So– so a killer is missing. How does that happen?

Baker: It appears that a guard may have helped her, when she was transferring to another facility.

Ridge: I don’t want excuses from you. I want you to find this woman. She’s very dangerous. And you need to put her under lock and key. She can’t be walking around anymore.

Baker: We will find Sheila Carter, and she will be brought to justice.

Ridge: Great. Let’s try to do that before somebody else gets hurt.

[ Li groaning ]

[ Machines beeping ]

Li: I’m keeping Finn alive, and you knocked me out?

Sheila: I– I just saw him open his eyes. I never thought I’d see that again.

Li: He’s– is he– is he awake?

Sheila: Yes, he was. He was, at least, I think, for a brief moment, he– he even, he even called me “Mom.”

Li: Is–

Sheila: But then he slipped. You need to help him, Li.

[ Li groaning ]

Sheila: Get up. Get up. He– he needs your help. Here, here. He needs your help. Get up.

Li: Finn! Sweetheart, can you hear me?

Sheila: Do what you have to do, you do anything. We have to save him because Hayes needs his daddy.

Li: You– you really love him?

Sheila: More than anything. I never meant to hurt him, Li. I swear, that night was just a terrible, terrible accident. It pains me to think that I caused him all of this.

Li: I just– uh, I couldn’t understand you, Sheila. How you claimed to love him, but almost took his life. You took him away from all of us. I– as I’m watching you and hearing you, I’m beginning to believe that you truly do love him. Our son.

Hope: My aunt Donna is a warm, giving person, and it’s no secret that she’s adored you from afar for a very long time. And i just want to make sure that’s not getting taken advantage of.

Eric: Hope, there’s nobody else like her. I– I keep thinking back to the time we had together, what she brought to our lives, what it was like when we were together. I can’t forget that. I will never forget that.

Hope: So are you saying that she’s the one who got away?

Eric: I do think that a bit.

Hope: So what I’m hearing you say is that your marriage to Quinn hasn’t really been the same ever since her involvement with Carter.

Eric: No. No, it hasn’t. I– I haven’t been the same.

Hope: I get what it’s like to– to be drawn to someone because of how they make you feel or because you feel safe with them. But I do think you need to be honest with yourself. And you need to figure out what you want because it’s not fair to either of those women. And I can tell that the guilt has been eating you up.

Eric: You can see that?

Hope: Yes. I think you and I both know that– a decision about your marriage needs to be made.

Carter: You’re on top of your game, Quinn.

Quinn: Yeah, I don’t know. I’ve been feeling inspired lately. Um, take this one, right? I– I’ve been working on this setting for a while and– it’s a nearly flawless stone.

Carter: Huh.

Quinn: It’s gonna make some lucky woman very happy someday.

Taylor: I wonder how Li is doing.

Ridge: We’ll know. I left her a message, but I haven’t heard back.

Taylor: I hope she got it. You know, Sheila’s capable of anything. She could be going after any one of us.

Sheila: Our son?

Li: Yes, Sheila. Our son.

Sheila: You really mean that?

Li: There’s no denying that you gave him life, that you brought him into this world. I never would have had him, if it weren’t for you. And for that, I have to be grateful.

Sheila: You don’t know what it means for me to hear you say that. I– I wanted to die. When I thought I killed him, I just– I wanted to die. I’m so sorry that I hit you. It’s just– you said you were going to go to the police, and I–

Li: Do you think I care about the police? All I care about is our son’s recovery, his well-being. Yes. I am– the one that’s been keeping him alive, but, Sheila, you’re the one who created him.

Sheila: We– we actually share something in common. We’re both Finn’s mothers. And you saved his life, li. You saved our boy’s life.

Hope: I am not encouraging you to leave your wife, or to stay. Whatever you do is entirely up to you. I just– I think a decision needs to be made, either way.

Eric: Thank you, Hope. For your, um, for your understanding. You’re a– a very wise woman.

Hope: I just think you and I both know that the important thing is– is that the truth is told.

Quinn: Carter. We can’t.

Carter: I love you. I adore you. I can’t. I can’t. I can’t live like this. I cannot live like this.

Quinn: I can’t– I can’t betray Eric.

Carter: I don’t want you to. I don’t want you to, but I can’t– I can’t take this anymore, Quinn, it’s too much. I have to shut it down.

Quinn: Carter, I–

Carter: No, I need to forget. I need– I need to move on.

Quinn: Carter, no! Don’t.

Taylor: Ridge, I don’t like this. Even though you increased security, I still have this eerie feeling.

Ridge: I know. I’m sorry. I just sent Li another text. Should we be worried that we’re not hearing back from her?

Taylor: Yeah, she’s a busy doctor. She’s probably somewhere trying to save someone’s life.

Sheila: Ah. Will he ever be the same?

Li: I’m not sure. He was without oxygen for quite some time that night.

Sheila: But he opened his eyes and that’s a good sign, right?

Li: It’s a very good sign.

Sheila: It means he’s coming back. I jus– I just know he is.

Li: You came here looking for his grave. And I’ve done one better. I’ve kept him alive.

Sheila: And I am so thankful, Li. I owe you so much.

Li: You’re a nurse, Sheila. You can see that our boy is struggling. He needs medical help. And I’m running out of supplies. I promise you. I don’t want to be your enemy. I’m not going to call the police.

Sheila: How can I be sure?

Li: You are not the only one that can go to jail here. I signed his death certificate. I smuggled him out of the hospital. Do you think any of that was legal? I have so much to lose here, Sheila. My medical license, my reputation, my freedom. I live for Finn. I can’t be separated from him. He needs me. And I have to admit, he needs you too. Our child. Our son.

Sheila: Finn? Finn?

Li: Finn, can you– can you open your eyes?

[ Finn mumbling ]

Sheila: Come on, baby. We’re– we’re right here. And we– we miss you so much.

Li: Finn, you have to stay with us. Keep trying. Keep fighting. Come on.

Sheila: Finn, Finn, we’re both here, honey. We’re right here.

Li: Both of your mothers are here.

[ Machines beeping ]

Sheila: Finn. What– what is this? What have you done?

Li: You need to leave now.

Sheila: Finn’s alive. My son is alive.

Ridge: Sheila has escaped. This– this is happening. She’s out there somewhere.

Taylor: R– ridge, what if she tries to track steffy down? What– what if she tries to find her?

Ridge: All right, we’ve got to tell her right away.

Eric: You think I’m overdoing it?

Quinn: At the club? Yes. I– I mean, exercise is good. I support you being active, uh, but not if it’s too much.

Eric: Well, why would you think that? And why would you think that so much to involve my daughter? Where is all this concern coming from?

Bridget: Dad, quinn just tells me that you’re– been spending a lot of time at the club.

Quinn: Yeah, way more than I think is normal.

Hope: So you want me to just keep it a secret? This affair that you’re having.

Donna: Wait. Affair? Affair doesn’t really sound like an accurate description here.

Hope: Oh, really? Because I– did I not just see the two of you kissing?

Donna: Yes. Yes, but it– it’s not even about that. It– it’s about love and joy and connection. And it– it’s nothing sordid, it’s just– it’s just two people that are trying to find comfort with one another and– and– and–

Hope: And having an affair. Yeah, I get it.

Donna: Don’t say anything, please?

Eric: I can assure you both there’s nothing to worry about. All this time I’ve been spending at the, uh, at the club, I mean, just the opposite. It’s energized me. It’s made me happy.

Quinn: And bridget and i are– are pleased to hear that. It’s just, um, you know, you’re not twenty years old anymore.

Eric: Yes, I’ve noticed that.

Bridget: Dad.

Quinn: Well, is– is there– is there something else that you’re doing there? Maybe something more strenuous?

Donna: I hate the way that you’re looking at me.

Hope: I am trying to see your side of things, but–

Donna: Do you think I’m happy about these circumstances? No, no. Never in a million years did I think that I’d be sneaking around with eric. Yes, I– I have daydreamed about us reconnecting. But as a loving couple, as– as his wife.

Hope: But you aren’t his wife, quinn is.

Donna: But– but it turns out that when he wants to be happy, or be at ease, he turns to me. Because that’s the kind of love that we share.

Taylor: Ridge. Let’s think about this for a minute, okay? I– do we really need to call steffy right now? I– she just got there. I don’t wanna stress her out.

Ridge: Sheila’s gonna do everything in her power to get to hayes.

Zende: What’s going on?

Ridge: Sheila has escaped.

Sheila: Oh, my son. My baby.

[ Machines beeping ] You let me grieve. You let me suffer, all along knowing that he was here, with you.

Li: Yes. I have been caring for him, as a mother should. Unlike you. Shooting him, leaving him for dead. His real mother stepped in, and saved him. I saved him. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

>>Eric: Uh, strenuous? No, no, I can’t really think of anything.

Bridget: Treadmill, maybe? Or are you doing stair climbers too much–

Eric: No, no I’ve done both, but I’m always very careful with that, sure.

Bridget: Okay. Do you have any tightness in your chest?

Eric: No.

Bridget: Any shortness of breath at the club?

Eric: Uh, no, dr. Forrester, what is all this? What’s all this concern about? Why are you asking me all these questions?

Bridget: Oh, dad, we both just want you to be around as long as possible. And everything that I’m hearing you say, sounds like you’re doing it right to make sure that happens. I’m glad to hear you say that you’re so happy and that you feel vital. I think these visits to the club are really good for you, as a doctor and more importantly, as your daughter. I, um, I’m glad to see you have such a interest in fitness.

Eric: I’ve always tried to make room for that, of course. And now I’m– I’m reaping the benefits.

Bridget: Good. Then I think I can encourage you to keep it up.

Donna: We didn’t plan on– on getting into this situation, I– I just want him to be happy, you know, it– it doesn’t even have to be with me. But quinn, she isn’t doing it. That– that much is clear.

Hope: So eric’s always been the one for you, then?

Donna: I’ll never feel about another man, the way I feel about eric. I mean, I know that he’s married to quinn, but– deep down, I’ll always believe that the woman that he belongs with is me.

Ridge: No, baker doesn’t know anything at this point, that except maybe a guard helped her.

Zende: This is crazy.

Taylor: It’s horrifying, knowing she’s out there.

Ridge: Well, she won’t be out there long. They’re gonna find her, put her behind bars. She shot our daughter. She killed her own son.

Sheila: He’s alive.

[ Machines beeping ] You’re alive. Oh my god. Finn, I– I didn’t kill you.

Li: Thanks to me.

[ Machines beeping ]

Sheila: How did you do it?

Li: I don’t owe you an explanation.

Sheila: I saw him die, li. I saw the life leave his body. I damn well would’ve done something if I thought there was a chance.

Li: The hell you would have. You want to protect yourself.

Sheila: Just tell me.

Li: His pulse came back in the ambulance. I was at the end of my shift, when they came in with finn.

Sheila: No, but I went– I went to the hospital. They didn’t say anything a– about you.

>>Li: You went to university. That’s where they brought steffy. They brought finn to where I work. The doctors, they were ready to give up on him. Take him off of life support. That’s when I took over.

Sheila: You did all of this on your own? Without anyone else? You– you just let all of us believe that he was dead? Even steffy. Oh, my god. You’re even crazier than I am. What can I du with less asthma?

Eric: It’s very nice to know that my daughter is a doctor, and she’s hanging around, watching out for me. Thank you.

Bridget: Of course, daddy. Oh, I love you. Just don’t take any risks with your health. When in doubt, just pick up the phone and call me.

Eric: All right. All right.

Bridget: Okay. Unfortunately, I’ve got a huge day. I’ve got to go, but–

Quinn: Okay. Um, well, let me walk you out.

Bridget: Bye.

Eric: Bye, sweetie.

Quinn: Uh, thank you for not saying anything about me monitoring his heart rate.

Bridget: Oh, yeah, of course. I know my dad and his sense of pride. I don’t think he would wear it if he knew.

Quinn: Yeah.

Bridget: I like that you can keep your eye on him, so please let me know if you see another spike in his heart.

Quinn: I will. And don’t worry, I’ll– I’ll be watching him like a hawk.

Hope: If eric were available, I would be thrilled for you. But as long as he is still married–

Donna: Say no more. I– I understand. I mean your saw us kissing, and that’s a shock. But the thing is that, uh, it feels like I’m– I’m reconnecting with this long lost friend. A friend who just happens to be my soul mate. A friend that still gives me butterflies, every time he kisses me.

Hope: Oh. Well, well I admit it. It’s sweet to hear you talk about it like that. And who knows, maybe he would be happier with you, but, I mean, quinn still loves him in her own way. And– I don’t know, I, uh, look, I don’t condone the way that you’re going about this, but everyone deserves honesty. Everyone deserves joy. Everyone deserves to feel love and respected.

Donna: Yes. Yes.

Ridge: Good, that’s what I need, thank you. Talk to charlie, tell him I’ll be right down, please.

Zende: Okay, you got it.

Taylor: Okay, steffy is beside herself.

Ridge: Of course she’s beside herself. She’ll take precautions. She’s smart.

Taylor: Oh, my god. We need to call li.

Li: You’re calling me crazy? Me? After what you did.

Sheila: How many times do I have to tell you it was an accident?

Li: Hah. You were trying to kill steffy. You pulled the trigger. That was no accident.

Sheila: I would never– I would never intentionally hurt finn. Never. And now I have a chance. I have a chance to make it up to him. Oh. Thank you, li. Thank you for keeping him alive. What does he remember? What does he say when he’s conscious?

Li: He hasn’t woken up.

Sheila: He should be in a hospital.

Li: No.

Sheila: Just look at this place. You can’t give him the adequate medical attention that he ne–

Li: I have. And I will continue.

Sheila: Take him to a hospital. Now.

Li: Finn stays right here. With me. My sister’s managing a lot,

Quinn: Um, hey, uh, I’m going to head back to the office. I’ve a few things I need to finish up.

Eric: What?

Quinn: But I’ll be home in time for martinis.

Eric: Okay, that sounds good.

Quinn: Um, you’re not upset with me for reaching out to bridget, are you?

Eric: No, no, not at all. I was surprised. A little, but not upset, no.

Quinn: Oh, I’m always going to be concerned about you. You’re my loving, loyal husband.

Eric: Yeah.

[ Eric sighing ]

Donna: What are you saying? Are you saying that you think eric and I should– should get back together?

Hope: Maybe, it is a possibility, but that is as far as I will go, given that he is still married to quinn.

Donna: Okay. Well, I appreciate you not calling me a homewrecker.

Hope: Do you know who my mother is?

[ Chuckling ]

Hope: I’m kidding. Obviously, look, I still want to go talk to eric, though. Well–

Donna: Okay, uh–

Hope: Just to see where his head is at in regards to, you know, his marriage, how he feels about you. If this really is about, you know, the connection you share. If it’s in reaction to what happened between carter and quinn.

Donna: Well, I– I don’t know how he could put that behind him. I mean, they– they fell for each other hard. And– and what, is he supposed to just assume they can just turn off their feelings?

Hope: Oh, if the feelings are true, it’s hard to bottle those up, and just put them away. Uh, things like that take time and sometimes, they never go away at all. Look, I know better than most that everybody is deserving of a partner whose heart is theirs’s, and theirs’s alone, and that includes you.

Ridge: First thing I need to do is call brooke, why are we calling li?

Taylor: Because sheila was furious with li for not letting her see finn’s body. Come on, ridge, who knows what sheila’s going to do next?

Ridge: You’re right. Let’s call li.

[ Dialing ]

[ Phone ringing ]

Sheila: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You’re not taking any calls, especially not from him.

Ridge: Li, hi, ridge forrester calling you, and I’m– I’m sorry, I’ve, uh, I’ve got some bad news. Sheila has escaped. Um, if you see anything or hear anything, please let me know. And please be careful.

Sheila: This isn’t a debate. I am not going to let you put his life at risk.

Li: You get no say on how I care for him. None. All you have to worry about right now is what you’re going to say to the police when they drag you to prison. It’s only a matter of time before you’re back where you belong.

Sheila: Because i killed finn. My son is very much alive.

Li: Doesn’t change what yo–

Sheila: No, no, it does. It changes everything. You know, I came looking for you so that you could show me where my son was buried or– or where you had his ashes so that I could pay my respects, but this, this is something I never expected. That– that you would lead me back to my son and that he’s alive! I didn’t kill you, baby. You are still here, and I have a chance with you. You need to take him to the hospital.

Li: And hand him over to the doctors who felt there was no chance of surviving? No, thank you. Finn had such a promising future. I was so excited for him. Then he met steffy, and the forresters, which brought you to his life, along with pain and suffering. I haven’t had been nursing him back to life, day and night, for you to just swoop in here and tell me wha–

[ Finn groaning ] Finn! Hi, honey. Can you hear me? Finn, sweetheart. Oh, my goodness. Yes– sweetheart, yes, it’s mom. Finn, hi, yes, it’s mom. Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Oh! Open your eyes. Finn!

[ Li grunting ]

Sheila: Hi, baby. I can’t believe you’re alive. Mommy’s right here, baby. I love you so much. It’s your mother, I’m right here by your side. Mama’s right here, baby.

[ Dramatic music ]

Taylor: You have news about sheila?

Ridge: Did another inmate kill her? That would be perfect.

Baker: As far as I know, sheila carter still very much alive.

Taylor: As far as you know?

Ridge: What’s going on?

Baker: I’m afraid that she’s no longer in custody.

Ridge: What?

Taylor: Why not?

Baker: She escaped.

Li: Sheila? What are– how are you–

Sheila: You don’t get it, do you? Nothing and no one is going to keep me away from my son. Where is he li? Where is finn?

Quinn: It’s eric’s heart rate. The– the smart ring says that it’s spiking again.

Carter: He’s at the club, right?

Quinn: Yes. Yeah. He– he said he was going to the club. This just seems more concerning than a game of pickleball.

Eric: I should know by now to expect the unexpected with you.

Donna: Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Eric: No?

Donna: Here’s looking to a lot more fun to look forward to. Hey. Wait. Wait. Wait. That wasn’t meant to pressure you or anything. I’m happy with everything just the way it is. Like here. I just want to spend as much time as possible with you. That’s all.

Carter: You know, I’m not sure that smart ring that you gave eric was such a good idea.

Quinn: Why?

Carter: If you’re going to panic every time he builds up a head of steam working out and playing pickleball, then to find out that he’s okay, you’re the one whose heart is going to need to be monitored.

Quinn: You think I’m overreacting? Here’s the problem. I’m the one who set the heart rate threshold. So, I don’t know when I’m supposed to be worried. But, do you know who would?

Carter: Who?

Quinn: Bridget, eric’s daughter. She is a doctor. She would be able to tell me when I’m supposed to be concerned. I’m going to call her. I need to make sure that eric is going to be okay.

Eric: You bring such joy to my life. Such ease and wants. I look forward to this time with you so much. And I just hate it– I hate it when I have to go.

Donna: I wish you didn’t have to leave me. You know, I go through serious withdrawal.

Eric: I’m sorry. Soon.

Donna: Soon.

Hope: Did I really just see that? You and eric.

Donna: Ah…

Taylor: What do you mean sheila escaped?

Ridge: How is that even possible?

Baker: We’re utilizing every resource we have to find her. I just wanted you to know right away.

Ridge: You have no idea where she is?

Taylor: Or where she’s headed?

Baker: At this point, sheila could be anywhere.

Li: How are you here, sheila? You’re supposed to be in prison.

Sheila: You know what? Many have tried, but they haven’t been able to keep me behind bars. This is– this is really quite a hiding place that you have burrowed into. It was a real challenge trying to find you. But I was determined. I want to know my son’s final resting place. You tell me now, where is finn? Are you one of the millions of americans

Donna: Hope, what are you doing here?

[ Hope laughs ]

Hope: That is really not the most burning question, is it?

Donna: Okay. Okay. It’s not what you’re thinking.

Hope: Oh, no. Was that not eric who just walked out of there?

Donna: Yes, that– that was eric.

Hope: And you were kissing him?

Donna: Well, I’d like to think it was mutual. What?

Hope: Please tell me that you are not having an affair with eric.

Donna: I’m not. I am. Sort of.

Hope: Sort of? Sort of? He’s– he is married to quinn.

Quinn: Eric’s heart rate has dropped. But I’m glad bridget is coming over so we can get ahead of any other problems.

Carter: Yeah. Yeah. I wonder if eric knows how lucky he is that… you said yes. How smart he was to take you back.

Quinn: I’m always going to be grateful that eric forgave me… for us.

[ Door unlatching ]

Quinn: Oh, good. You’re here.

Bridget: Yes, of course. What’s going on with my dad?

Carter: I’ll let you two talk.

Bridget: Hi.

Carter: Good to see you.

Bridget: Good to see you too. I can tell you’re really concerned about something.

Quinn: Your dad’s heart rate has been spiking.

Bridget: Okay. How do you know that?

Quinn: Because I’ve been monitoring it with a smart ring.

Bridget: Oh.

Ridge: I– I can’t believe this.

Taylor: How did she escape?

Baker: She was being transferred. It looks like she had help.

Taylor: Help?

Ridge: From the inside?

Baker: Prison guard.

Ridge: Oh, okay. So now she’s just running around L.A. No one knows where she is.

Taylor: Oh, thank god. Steffy and the kids are out of the country.

Baker: She won’t be out there for long. We will find her.

Ridge: Are you tracking her. What are you doing?

Baker: Well, we were hoping you could help.

Ridge: Us? What– what– what do we know?

Baker: Your dealings with her recently. Did she say anything about where she might want to go or– or who she might want to see?

Li: How are you here, sheila? You’re supposed to be behind bars.

Sheila: I escaped with the help of a friend. I have resources. You’d be very smart to remember that.

Li: I’m going to the police.

Sheila: Don’t even bother. You don’t think I went through all this trouble just so you could send me back to prison? No. I want to see my son. I never got to tell him goodbye.

Li: There would be no need for goodbyes if it wasn’t for you. You shot him.

Shelia: It was an accident!

Li: Is that how you sleep at night?

Sheila: Ugh. I am trying to say this as nicely as I can. Where is finn? Did you bury him? Did you spread his ashes? I want to see my son. (Dog barking) we love our pets.

Hope: This is unbelievable. You and eric. I know I’m not quinn’s biggest fan, but marriage should still be respected. And I’m going to guess that she has no idea.

Donna: No. No, she doesn’T. I’m asking you please, please don’t tell her.

Quinn: It’s a secret, okay?

Bridget: Okay.

Quinn: Please, please, please don’t say anything to your dad. Because I’ve been monitoring his heart out of love, right? I mean, I want him to be around for a really long time. And, you know, men, they could be at death’s door before they admit something is wrong. Much less go see a doctor.

Bridget: That’s true. And I appreciate that, quinn. I appreciate you looking after my dad.

Quinn: Just– you won’t tell him, right?

Bridget: No. I don’t see any reason for him to know.

Quinn: Okay, good, good. All right. Thank you. So, do you think there’s any reason to be concerned?

Bridget: Well, an elevated heart rate could be caused by any number of things like anxiety. Or exercise. Or… another form of… excitement.

Quinn: Oh. No. Oh. See. Well, you may know that your father and i have been through kind of a difficult time, and I was hoping we would have gotten… past it by now. But– but, yeah, that’s– that’s not going to be one of the reasons that I’m worried about, unfortunately.

Bridget: I understand that. But professionally speaking, I’m not really hearing anything that’s giving me cause for alarm. I mean, quinn, it’s perfectly normal to set goals in an exercise routine and then move past them. It actually sounds like my dad’s heart is getting stronger, not weaker.

Quinn: That’s a relief.

Bridget: But I do want you to keep me posted. And I am going to… talk to my dad. I want to find out exactly what this exercise routine is. And… I promise you, I will not mention your smart ring.

Quinn: I will keep you posted. And I thank you so much, bridget.

Bridget: You know what, quinn? Thank you for caring so much about my dad.

[ Door unlatching ]

Bridget: Dad!

Eric: Hello bridget. What ah– what’s going on here?

Ridge: I’m sorry, chief, no, deputy chief. Did you just seriously ask us if we know where sheila is?

Baker: Your personal relationship with her. Your long-term relationship. That’s an advantage the law enforcement doesn’t have.

Ridge: I’m so sorry. Sheila carter shot my daughter, almost killed her. She did kill her own son. And she was in prison. And you couldn’t hold on to her.

Taylor: Ridge has a point. Listen, chief baker. Sheila– sheila has a very hard time making friends. And the only family that she had was her potential relationship with finn.

Ridge: The only family she had was finn. And now he’s dead because of her.

Li: I mean it sheila. Get out.

Sheila: I will. Once you tell me where finn is. I never meant to kill my son.

Li: My son.

Sheila: I gave life to him! All I ever wanted was to love him and have him love me in return. A chance at a relationship with my son and my grandson. It’s all I’ve been living for. Why on earth would I deliberately ruin any chance of that ever happening? I am still haunted by the events of that night.

Li: You should be.

Sheila: I did– I didn’t even know he was there. When I finally saw him, it was just too late.

Li: My god. I can’t believe you, justifying yourself. You fired a gun at steffy. You pulled the trigger. You intended to kill her. Finn’s wife. Hayes’ mother.

Sheila: She wouldn’t stop. She kept telling me that I would never be a part of my son’s life. That I would– I would never share any time with my son or my grandson. She took brooke’s side. She defended brooke. She doesn’t even like brooke. She did all of this just to hurt me. No, this is steffy’s fault. If it weren’t for her, my son would still be alive.

Li: You’re insane.

Sheila: You have no idea what this has done to me, reliving this horror. I see finn lying on the ground, bleeding. And it just plays over and over in my mind.

Li: Good. I hope it haunts you for the rest of your worthless life. Now, leave.

Sheila: I told you, I’m not leaving until you tell me where finn is.

[ Heart rate monitor beeping ] What was that? Answer me. You tell me now. What was that sound?

Can a cream

really reduce wrinkles?

Eric: It’s not very often that I find the two of you together. What’s the occasion?

Quinn: What’s the one thing– the most important thing that bridget and I have in common?

Eric: Well, the most important thing is me.

Quinn: Right. I– I reached out to your daughter because… I was worried about you.

Eric: Why?

Quinn: Because I think you may be overdoing it at the club.

Hope: Wow.

Donna: I– I– I love him, hope. What eric and I share it’s– it’s– it’s sweet and it’s pure.

Hope: After everything that eric and quinn have been through to try to stay together and now he’s cheating on her with you?

Donna: Okay. Okay. I can see you’re really, really disappointed me and… eric. And please don’t judge us like this. I’m begging you. Please don’t say anything to quinn or brooke. I– look, I just don’t want to upset eric or– or cause more problems in his life than he already has. Can you please not say anything… for me? Please.

Ridge: This is unbelievable to me. How does this happen to me? How does someone like sheila carter, a psychopath and a murderer, just walk out of prison and be on her merry way?

Taylor: Who would– who would help a woman who– who killed her son and shot his wife? Oh, thank god steffy and the kids are far away.

Ridge: Yeah, they are far away. No one knows where they are. Not now, but they will. Baker, what is he doing? The police, what are they doing? Nothing. They got to find her and put it away before… before something else happens.

Sheila: What was that sound? Is there somebody else here? Is it jack?

Li: No. Jack and I are no longer together, thanks to you. You ruined us just like you ruin everything. You single handedly took a wrecking ball to my life. My husband, my son. No more. I won’t allow you to hurt us ever again, sheila, now get out!

Sheila: How many times do I have to tell you? I am not going anywhere until I see my son.

[ Heart rate monitor beeping ]

Li: You need to leave.

Sheila: What is that sound?

Li: You need to leave now.

Sheila: Why won’t you tell me? Get out of my way.

Li: You can’t go there. No!

[ Heart rate monitor beeping ]

Sheila: Finn, you’re alive. Finn, you’re alive. He’s– he’s alive. All this time, my son has been alive? Oh. Oh, baby.

Ridge: Come in here. Please. You and paris? That’s your future now?

Carter: I wanted to tell you, okay? I– I didn’t know where things were going.

Ridge: Oh, okay. What– what about zende? They’re dating.

Carter: They were. Not anymore. It got messy for a while, but zende’s okay with it.

Ridge: Oh, zende’s okay with it. Well, if he’s okay with it, then there’s no problem at all. What are you doing, carter? You keeping secrets? You– you’re not telling me things? What– what is this about?

Quinn: You know, you don’t have to hide your feelings from me.

Eric: What do you mean?

Quinn: I know how you care about your family. I know you’re worried about steffy and the kids in europe and– and ridge living here. You never tell me anything. You just say, “uh, oh, yeah, everything is okay.” And then you run off to the club.

Eric: No, no, you’re right. You’re right. I’m sorry. I just don’t see why I should put any of that on you.

Quinn: Because I’m your wife. I’m your partner. You’re supposed to open up to me. Please eric, don’t shut me out.

Eric: Hope?

Hope: Um. Sorry. Uh– you’re obviously in the middle of something, so I can… I can go.

Eric: You know, is there anything I can do for ya?

Hope: Well, ridge said that you wanted to give some input into the next collection but if this isn’t a good time for you, I– I totally understand. I know things have been pretty crazy lately.

Eric: Well, thank you. That’s very considerate of you. Thank you.

Hope: Well, with everything going on, I’m just trying to be as useful as I can be.

[ Machines beeping ]

Li: This is what you need, finn, rest. Heal from this trauma. You’re getting stronger every day. I can feel it. They didn’t think you survived. No reason to hope. But they didn’t know what a force you were. Or how hard I’d fight to keep you alive.

[ Rhythmic beeping ]

Eric: Hope, you’re absolutely right. This is not a good time. Uh, I have an appointment at the club I can’t be late for. I have to go.

Hope: Oh, okay.

Eric: But we’ll discuss this at uh, a later date. All right?

Hope: All right.

Quinn: But– but you’ll be home later?

Eri y>>I’ll text you.

Quinn: Oh. Okay. Well, I– I love you. Have fun.

Carter: Look, man, my life’s in limbo right now and I feel stuck. All right? I’m frustrated. It’s like I can see what I want. It’s right in front of me and I can’t have it.

[ Knocking ]

Taylor: Hello? I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Pam said that you’re free. I–

Carter: He is.

Ridge: We’re not done.

Carter: He’s all yours, taylor.

Taylor: Okay. Um, what was that? What is– what is going on?

Ridge: Apparently, carter is involved with paris.

Taylor: I thought she was with zende.

Ridge: Yeah, I thought that, too, but things change quickly around here. He wants to have a future with her but he doesn’t seem that happy about it. I’m worried about him.

Taylor: I can see that, I’m sorry.

Ridge: It’s all I can do these days, right? Worry about things, worry about my friends, worry about my family.

Taylor: Family. Yes, I know. I un– I understand that. Like I’m– I’m– I’m glad that steffy and the kids took this trip but– it’s so hard to imagine them being forced to live a life without finn.

Li: No one knows what I’ve done, finn. Nobody knows you’re alive. I need you to open your eyes, finn. Come back to me. Come back to me, finn. New lash paradise mascara from l’oreal paris.

Hope: Um, I’ll get going. But– before I do, I…. I just have to ask, quinn, is everything all right?

Quinn: It’s fine!

Hope: Okay. Well, I– I didn’t mean to intrude but I did overhear you and eric when I came in and it–

Quinn: Everything is fine.

Hope: But you know, eric seemed good. Um, but I was actually– I was asking about you.

[ Knocking ]

Carter: Hope.

Hope: Carter.

Carter: Um, I uh, get the feeling that I’m interrupting.

>>Hope: Oh, no, no. Pam told me that eric has been working from home and I just thought I would stop by and catch him but–

Quinn: Well, that’s hard to do these days.

Carter: He’s not here?

Quinn: Are you looking for eric, too?

Carter: Yeah.

Quinn: Well, you missed him. Just a little while ago, he went to the club.

Hope: Which is actually where I was heading before I came over here. Uh, douglas is at a pool party and I need to drop something off to him. So, once again, I’m really sorry for interrupting and– and for overhearing everything.

Quinn: It’s okay, hope. You didn’t overhear anything. Nothing’s going on. Eric and I are fine. We had a little stumble in our marriage, but we’re working hard to overcome it. And I… I’m lucky to be with eric and I know he feels the same way about me.

Donna: Thank you, lucas!

Eric: Uh, well, um, pickleball is a pretty fun game, I gotta say.

Donna: Well, the outfits are cute. I’ll give you that.

Eric: Yeah, well, the outfit looks pretty good on you.

Donna: Oh, really?

Eric: Yes–

Donna: Well, you look quite dashing yourself.

Eric: Thank you.

Donna: Almost like you actually even play.

Eric: I do.

[ Donna scoffs ]

Eric: I don’t play as much as we say I do, but I play.

Donna: Okay.

Eric: If I played that much I would be club champion.

Donna: Hah, well, I’m– I’m just glad that you didn’t retire from the sport.

Eric: You know, it’s pretty hard to give up something that makes you feel so good.

Donna: Speaking of things that make you feel good…

[ British accent ] Would you like a little honey with your tea?

Eric: [British] A little honey with my tea? Yes.

Donna: Yes?

Eric: Yes. Thank you.

Donna: Okay. Here’s a spot of tea. Honey.

Eric: Just a little. Just drip–

[ Donna giggles ]

Eric: Thank you.

Donna: Oh. Well, not to spoil the mood or anything. I just was, I don’t know, a little surprised to uh, get your message. I wasn’t sure if you were comfortable meeting like this.

Eric: Well, I– uh– I wasn’t able to give it up, I don’t think.

Donna: You’re still feeling guilty about quinn?

Eric: Yes, I am. I– I don’t like keeping things from her. I don’T. But when work is hectic and there’s all this stress in my family, all I can do is think of you, coming here and being with you. There’s a lightness and a levity about you and I– I just can’t uh, give it up. I mean, I need that so much in my life right now.

Taylor: You know, I wonder how li is doing.

Ridge: I’ve been thinking about her, too.

Taylor: I left her a message and I told her that steffy and the kids went out of town.

Ridge: Nothing, huh?

Taylor: That– no, I haven’t heard back from her.

Ridge: Well. We all grieve in our way, right?

Taylor: Yeah but she doesn’t need to struggle through this alone. We’re family.

Ridge: Always will be.

Taylor: Let’s call her. I want her to know that we’re here for her.

[ Machines beeping ]

[Phone ringing]

Li: Hello, taylor?

Taylor: Hi, li. Um, I have you on speakerphone. Ridge is here.

Ridge: Hey, good to hear your voice.

Taylor: How are you?

Li: Keeping busy.

Ridge: Well, are

you back at work or…

Li: I’m really focused on an outside case. Given me a sense of purpose.

Taylor: That’s good. That’s– that’s very important. You know, I- I left you a message and I– I told you that, uh, you know, steffy and the kids have gone out of town. I didn’t hear back from you. So we just– we wanted to– we wanted to check in and see if there was anything we could do for you.

Li: No, thank you. I have everything I need right here.

Ridge: And if that changes, all you have to do is call.

Taylor: You know, li, th–finn’s death was a profound loss for all of us. And, you know… I have a question. Um. It might sound insensitive. I– I don’t want to upset you.

Li: I’m listening.

Taylor: It would

be wonderful if we could get

some of finn’s ashes

for steffy. It would be wonderful if she could have a memorial for her husband.

Li: So you can all say

your goodbyes and move on?

Taylor: Well, so that we can– so that we can celebrate his life, and all the joy he brought to the world.

Ridge: Celebrate the great father he was.

Li: My son had an amazing future. But then he got mixed up in all this.

Taylor: I can hear the– the pain in your voice, li. You know, I am– I am happy to meet you somewhere if you’d like to talk or– or I– I know a wonderful grief counselor who’s so great.

Li: I’m not grieving for my son. Finn will always be with me.

[ Call hanging up ]

Ridge: She hang up on you?

Taylor: Li? She’s–

Li: Don’t worry, son. I’m here. I’m going to take care of you. Get you through this. You will recover. Hi, I’m karen.

Donna: You’re not in a rush to get home or to the office?

Eric: No, no. I’m happy where I am right now.

Donna: Me too.

Eric: You know, you uh… you called this our oasis. Are you certain you never… that you never really want to go anywhere else, and maybe go out together? To dinner, or an event or something?

Donna: Oh, stop. I don’t need all that to know that I’m important to you.

Eric: Oh, you are. All this time with you, this time here and these afternoons. I mean, it’s just absolutely perfect.

Donna: As long as we don’t run out of honey, right?

Eric: Well, we can’T. Because you’re my honey.

Donna: Why? Because I’m so sweet?

Eric: Yeah and mostly because I’m just, I’m absolutely stuck on you.

Donna: Oh, that is so corny! Oh!

Eric: Oh, well come on– oh, yeah?

Donna: I’m sorry.

Eric: Oh, is that what you want?

[ Donna squealing ] Eric: There you are! I’m got you– I got you. Here it is. Here!

Quinn: Did you really come here to see eric?

Carter: I knew there was a chance you could be here, but… no.

Quinn: You can’t do this. You can’t just show up like this.

Carter: I needed to talk to you in private.

Quinn: Why? Did– did you come to your senses and– and give up this crazy idea to get involved with paris again? I mean. Carter, come on. Why are you doing this?

Carter: I have to do this quinn because I can’t be with you.

[ Alarm ringing ]

Quinn: Oh, no.

Carter: What?

Quinn: It’s an alert from the smart ring. Something’s going on with eric.

Ridge: I know you don’t like when I use that word, but, um, the way li was acting was normal, right?

Taylor: You know, some people grieve by–

Ridge: I know. We all grieve in different ways. I get that. But what just happened didn’t make sense to me.

Taylor: Yeah, I– I can understand her not wanting to face what happened. We’ve been there, you know, but… but not allowing steffy to have any closure or to memorialize her husband.

Ridge: It just seems to me like she is not accepting that finn is gone.

[ Rhythmic beeping ]

Li: You’d want them to know. You don’t want steffy and your family to grieve while you’re still here. But I can’t think of what they need right now. I have to focus on you. And you have to focus on getting better. You need to heal. You did what you could for steffy. Now you have to take care of yourself. Steffy’s looking after your son and I’m looking after mine. Finn? Finn, can you hear me? Finn? More protection,

Quinn: It’s happening again.

Carter: His heart rate?

Quinn: It’s spiking again!

Donna: No more honey jokes! Oh!

Eric: Oh, I got– I got a pot of them.

Donna: Don’t you dare!

Eric: You can’t run away from me. Just– just hang on. I’m gonna be all right, I just need to–

Donna: Oh, stop. I’m not falling for–

Hope: Eric–?

Donna: That one!

Eric: No, no, really.

Donna: No!

Eric: I’m gonna be okay. I just wanna catch my breath, that’s all.

Donna: Eric, you okay?

Eric: I think so.

Donna: Eric.

Eric: Soon as I do this.

Donna: I– oh!

Eric: I got you.

Donna: I can’t believe– oh!

Eric: Come here. Come here.

Li: Finn, sweetheart, it’s– it’s mom. I’m here with you. Can you hear me? If you can, squeeze my hand, open your eyes.

[ Rhythmic beeping ] Come on. You can do it. I’m never giving up on you.

Taylor: The loss of a child is one of the most traumatic things a person can experience. There’s no– there’s no normal reaction.

Ridge: I’m not, that’s not what I meant. I ju– I meant she reacted in a way that you weren’t expecting.

Taylor: It’s not what I hoped. She– she’s a doctor. She prides herself on saving lives. And she couldn’t save her son.

Ridge: Ah. Put it that way. It makes sense to me.

Taylor: Yeah. Just… cuts to the– the very core of who she is, you know?

Ridge: So what do we do? How do we help her?

Taylor: Well, she’s– she’s shutting us out. All we can do is, just be there for her.

[ Knocking ]

Baker: Ridge.

Ridge: Baker, hi.

Baker: I’m glad you’re both here.

Taylor: What’s going on?

Baker: Is steffy in the building?

Ridge: No. Why?

Baker: I’ve got some urgent news about sheila carter.

Li: Eye movement detected. No corresponding change in vital signs, no change in awareness, still no response to stimuli. I’ll continue to monitor for other signs of progress.

[ Machines beeping ] Keep fighting, sweetheart. I know you’re coming back to me.

[ Rhythmic beeping ]

[ Knocking ]

[ Knocking persists ]

[ Knocking ] All right, all right, I’m coming. Who is it?

Sheila: Hello, li.

Li: Sheila.

Sheila: Where is my son?

Katie: Ah, it’s so good to be back.

Donna: Well, we came here to surprise brooke with this brunch, but apparently she’s at a meeting so, uh–

Hope: Well, uh, she’s missing out because I’m happy that I caught you.

Katie: I’ve just missed everyone so much. I’ve missed being here. As much as I liked being at international and, of course, spending time with will.

Donna: There’s no place like home.

Katie: I just wish I’d been a better sister. Uh, to you and to brooke, I feel terrible that I haven’t been here while she was going through everything that she went through.

Donna: Stop, stop doing that to yourself. You were in touch with us– us constantly. And we always felt your love and your support.

Katie: I just can’t believe what sheila did. I mean, I’m still trying to wrap my head around what she did to steffy and to finn and w she targeted brooke. I just hope that brooke and ridge can get back on track soon.

Ridge: Well, this is pretty cool. Not too shabby.

Quinn: What?

Ridge: Numbers for your jewelry line, evenetter than last year. That’s gotta make you happy.

Quinn: Yeah, thanks. I guess.

Ridge: You guess? This is great work. You don’t feel a sense of ide, maybe?

Quinn: I do. I do. I just have other things on my mind.

Ridge: Huh. Like what? You and my dad, or?

Quinn: Uh… your dad and I are fine. Thank you for asking.

Rge: Huh. Okay. Good.

Quinn: Good, yeah, right, of course,t’s iod. I mean, I don’t see your dad all that often. He, uh– he’s very busy. Spends a lot of time at the club.

R>>Ge: I know! What is that, pickle ball? He just picked that andup I don’t– I don’t know– maybe you should lea.Rn then the two of you can play together and you can spend more time with my dad.

Quinn: I uld love to spend more time with eric.

Ridge: To be fair, you’re luc that you’re spending time with him at all, after what you did with carter.

Donna: ,So I’m dying to know, how are you and bill? Is he still trng to woo you back?

Katie: Um, yes.

Hope: And is it working?

Donna: Not that we’re prying or, you kn–

Katie: No, no, of course not. Um, there’s really not a whole lot to tell, to be honest. He wants us to be together again and he seems sincere.

Donna: Well, I– I’m sure he is. He loves you, katie.

Katie: Well, I– I don’t doubt that, but I– I’m guarded. I mean, we’ve been through so much.

Donna: Every relationship has its challenges but if the love is there… the question is, do you still love bill?

Katie: I– it’s never been

issue of love.

Donna: Well, that’s not really an answer now, is it?

Katie: Okay. Well, ah, I– I guess the way I can answ that is tt for me, loving bill spencer is just I can’t not love him. Even though he can be the single most irritating man on the planet sometimes. I know him very well. And ultimately, ah… I have to wonder if deep down, he might always want tbe with brooke. And– and I’m not saying that because I’m upset. I’m not. It’s just– it’s just the way it is. So, I guess, since we’re on the subject, I don’t really want to put you on the spot but you do live onhe property, you’re married to his son, so has bill been coming around? I mean, now that brooke and ridge are apart, do you think he wants her back?

Paris: Oh, my god, what was that about?

Carte I guess, I, um– I couldn’t help myself. I had to kiss you.

Paris: You had to?

Carter: I needed to. If I– if I overstepped then…

Paris: No, uh, that’s not what I’m saying. It’s just the last thing I expected.

Carter: That’s understandable, uh, after the way we left things.

Paris: Mm, after the way you left things because you were the one–

Carter: I know, I know, and I know that my feelings have been all over the place. You know, I– I thought I– I thought that I knew what I– and then as it turns out, right, as it turns out, it– it was never…

Pis: Ar.

Carter: I’m not making sense right now.

[ Laughing ]

Paris: No, you’re definitely not, but I’m not sure what to make of it either. Because you’re normally so together.

Carter: At work, yes. But in my personal life, recently–

[ Chuckling ] — That’s a whole ‘nother story. Still, I finally see how it has to be.

Quinn: You’re never going to let me forget, are you?

Ridge: Come on, I’m not being cruel. I’m saying you’re lucky.

Quinn: You thin I don’t know that? That I feel blessed that your father took me back? You know, I’m just– I’m just grateful that I married a man who isn’t vindictive and spiteful, because I know eric would never hurt me the way I hurt him.

[ Phone beeps ] Yeahi’ve got to go. I’ve got a distributor downstairs.

Ridge: Hey, quinn.

Quinn: What?

Ridge: I’m just giving you a hard time. I know deep down, you care about my dad.

Quinn: Yeah.

Grace: Ridge.

[ Door slams ] Something’s going on. My daughter is being harassed here at work.

Rge: Id- wait, she’s being harassed? By whom?

Grace: Forrester creation’s O. Carter walton.

Paris: Why?

Carter: Why, why, what?

Paris: Why are you coming to me like this all of a sudden?

Carter: Because I– I can’t go on like this any longer. I can’t keep putting my life on hold. I need– I need to move forward.

Paris: So, carter, what are you saying? You want me back?

Ridge: Carter is harassing paris?

Grace: I realize you and carter are goofriends. And I’m sure you think you know him–

Ridge: I do know him! Ah, this is a very serious accusation.

Grace: It’s happening right now in an office across the hall. I saw it with my own eyes. Carter had his lips all over my little girl again.

Ridge: Again?

Grace: Yes, again. I caught them at his apartment not long ago.

Ridge: At his apartment? Not even here, that–

Grace: He had his lips all over her, just flaunting it in my face after I had expressly rbidden him from getting anywhere near my daughter.

Ridge: Okay, slow down. I’m trying to understand what’s going on here.

Grace: Carter is manipulating my little girl’s feelings. He’s using her. And I won’t stand for it, ridge. And I’m not going to let him do what he did to zoe. It almost destroyed her! And I’m not going to let him treat her the way he treated your father’s wife. Carter’s gotta be stopped.

Katie: So, I was all geared up to talk to brooke about this but she’s not here and you are, so lucky you. Just– yes or no? Has– has bill been coming around, or not?

[ Inhaling ]

Hope: No. Not at all. I mean not coming around for my mom. And even if he had, it would be pointless because my mother is totally and completelyevoted to ridgE.

Katie: Well, I know that, but bill has always liked a challenge, especially when he sees an opening.

Hope: Oh, there is no opening. Trust me, I mean– after these past few months, it is very clear that my mom’s heart belongs to ridge. I mean, now and always.

Donna: That is true love.

Katie: Well, I’m not sure that bill would see it that way. He’s never thought the dressmaker was right for brooke.

Donna: Oh. Well, luckily, bill spencer doesn’t get to choose who’s right for brooke. Hmm?

Katie: Hmm. Okay. Well, now that I’ve grilled hope and we’ve talked about brooke and me, what about you, donna? What man is in your life?

Donna: You are,

and always will be,

the great love of my life.

[ Door bangs ]

Quinn: Well, there’s my handsome husband. Oh!

Eric: Hey.

Quinn: It looks like I got home just in time.

Eric: In time for what?

Quinn: Well, it looks like you were lost in happy thghts. And I hope you’re going to tell me those happy thoughts were about me.

With age comes more…

Katie: So, donna, is there someone special in your life?

Donna: Well, yeah. I mean, I have a lot of special people. My sisters, and my niece. Nieces and nephews. And, you know–

Katie: That’s not exactly what I was talking about, but okay, all right, cool. I get it. We’re not going to intrude. I’m not going to, anyway. But I just want you knoto that there is someone special out there for you. The man of your dreams. And he might even be closer than you think.

Donna: Okay. Okay. Let’s just, um, you know, get back to you and bill.

Hope: Okay, look. For what it’s worth, you twalready share a life together. You share a child. And if he’s what you want then I think you should go for it. I mean, if anything, we have learned recently that life is srt.

Katie: Hmm.

Hope: And you never know what is going to happe I mean, anything is possible. I mean, look– look what happened with eric and quinn, right? She had an affair with carter but he still forgave her and took her back. And that man is a saint, let’s be hones I mt,n–

[ Laughs ] — That is the perfect example of a loving, understanding, committed man.

Quinn: I don’t know what got into me. You don’t have to answer that.

Eric: It’s okay.

Quinn: No. No, it’s not okay. I sound like some insecure wife who needs her husband to tell her that she’s always on his mind. And that’s ridiculous. I don’t expect that.

Eric: No, it’s not ridiculous. Everybody needs to know that they’re appreciated and loved.

Quinn: Yeah. But I–

Eric: But what?

Quinn: Well… well, if I’m being honest with myself and with you…

[ Sighing ] Yes, we’re back together and– and we’re living– living in this home together,but we both have acknowledged that things haven’t been the same between us since– since I betrayed you, and I– um, I take full responsibility for that. I hurt you, eric. I know I hurt you deeply and– and I’m so sorry. I– I can’t apologize to you enough. But I’m also a very patient woman and whatever time you need to take, I want you to take it. Whatever you need to do to get past this, then– then you do it. Becausi believe in our marriage and in our future and– and both of those things are possible because you opened up your heart to me and you– you let me back into this home. And I am so– so fortunate to have such a loving, loyal husband.

Carter: I, um– I can’t sto thinking about everything that happened. And what brought us together and I know this– this is coming out of nowhere especially when I was so adamant about us not being gether. But we have to be. I need this, paris. More tn you can ever know.

Paris: I mean, I never lost hope and I’m glad I didn’T. But I know it’s complicated with zende and my mom, but we’ll make them understand. They’ll understand and they’ll be happy for us.

[ Phone dinging ] Oh, okay. I have a meeting. I’ll reschule, but–

Carter: No, no, no, no, no, ‘s fite. Anwe can’t talk here really any way.

Paris: I can’t wait to be alone with you again. I’ll see you.

Ridge: So, I just had a very interesting run-in with grace. She seems to think that you were in here, making out with her daughter. Tell mshe’e wrong. Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Carter: Ridge, look, man.

Ridge: Look what? Just tell me grace was wrong. That’s all I need to hear.

Carter: I can’T. Because she isn’T.

Ridge: Oh, come–

Carter: Look, paris and I–

Ridge: “Paris and I,” how– what, argh– how is it even in the same sentence? You and paris. You know how zende feels about the wom–

Carter: Yes, I do, but–

Ridge: But what? This is starting to be a– a pattern, right? Is there something wrong with you? Is there something wrong?

Carter: I don’t know! I don’t know, man. All I know is I need to move on.

Ridge: Oh, you need to move on, but move on to what?

Carter: With my life, ridge!

Ridge: Easy!

Carter: Look, man, I’m tired of sitting on the side lines and watching everyone fall in lov and– and get married, and start families. I’m sick of it.

Ridge: Oh, so now you wanna start a family? With paris?

Carter: I– I’m not sure.

Ridge: You’re not sure? Well, don’t think about starting a family if you’re not sure. What are you doing? She’s– she’s a nice woman. She’s– is she the one? Is she the one you’re in love with?

Quinn: Stop thinking about that. Focus on eric. My sweet, wonderful husband who’s devoted only to me.

Hope: You agree with me about eric, right? I mean, you know him so well. He’s such a kind, devoted man.

Donna: Uh, yeah, mean, of course I agree. Eric is remarkable and quinn is lucky that she’s his wife. Just as ridge is lucky to have brooke for a wife.

Katie: I just know that ridge is going to go back to brooke. I mean, they’re finally going to have their happily ev after.

Hope: And, uh, what about you, aunt donna? I mean, we want that for you. We want you to have a lifelong love.

Katie: Listen, we all know that bill is the love of my life and eric is the love of yours. It’s just so sad that he’s with quinn.

Quinn: Mmm. I love sharing this home with you. You’ve brought such peace into my life– a happiness I have never known until you. You know, I always went through life alone, right? A single mom, raising a young son. And I was shut off. I– I had my walls up and I surrounded myself with all the wrong people. Wrong men. And I got hurt. But all that changed when I met you. My wonderful, steadfast, loyal husband.

[ Dramatic music ]

[ Buzzer sounding ]

Sheila: Finally. Someone that can tell me why I’m here. I– I didn’t have any meetings scheduled with my attorney.

Baker: Well, I thought you’d appreciate getting out of your cell for a little bit, sheila. But, I’m happy to hear that you’re enjoying the accommodations.

Sheila: Can you jusasou my attorney to come in? Maybe she’s got good news for me.

Baker: Your attorney’s not here. There’s not much she can do for you anyway. We got your confession. We got the gun that you used to murder your son and to shoot steffy forrester.

Sheila: I don’t have to listen to this. Would you just tell me why I’m here?

Baker: You’ve got yourself a visitor.

Carter: This shouldn’t be a problem. Ridge and I are covering for steffy while she’s away. Zende said he’ll take on a few things as well.

Quinn: Yeah. After what steffy’s been through, I don’t blame her for wanting to get the kids out of L.A.

Carter: Yeah, I think we’re all still in a state of shock about the whole situation.

Quinn: Yeah, what sheila did was unspeakable. I mean, she ended a man’s life in an instant and it was her own son.

Carter: It reminds me of how precious life is. You really can’t waste a moment. So, I made my decision, quinn. I’M… I’m moving on, starting today.

Grace: I like that one of you two.

Zende: Dr. Buckingham, hey.

Grace: Oh, so many cute photos of you and paris.

Zende: Yeah. Yeah. We’ve had a lot of fun times together.

Grace: You can still make wonderful memories together. It’s not over. I see how much you love my daughter.

Grace: You’re not fooling me. It’s obvious you still have feelings for my daughter.

Zende: I’ll always care about paris, but she has made it clear that she is not interested in anything serious with me.

Grace: But there’s so much potential there. Potential for something real. And not like this silly crush she’s got on carter.

Zende: I am not sure that it’s just a crush.

Grace: Whatever you wanna label it, it’s not good for my daughter. It’s not good for paris. Carter had an affair with your grandfather’s wife. With quinn. He almost destroyed zoe, so no. A good mother knows what’s best for her children and that is you. You are a good man, zende, so don’t give up on her. And I will not let paris try to make a life with carter.

Carter: I know how I feel about you and I know how committed you are to your marriage.

Quinn: Making my marriage work is what matters most to me right now, carter.

Carter: I understand that now. You don’t want to hurt eric and neither do I. And that’s why I have to let you go for good, quinn. I can’t– I can’t go on like this any longer.

Quinn: Does this mean you’re going back to paris?

Sheila: I’m not in the mood for any visitors. The person I wanna see is my son.

Baker: Well, you should’ve thought of that before you put a bullet in him. Finn is dead, sheila, and unfortunately, none of us are gonna be seeing him again.

[ Buzzer sounding ]

Sheila: Li. What are you doing here?

Li: I had to see it with my own eyes. You, locked up in this hell hole. How does it feel, sheila? Knowing you will never be free again? I’ll make sure of it. You will pay for what you did to my son. (Asaad) when I was little,

Grace: Just give yourself and paris another chance.

Zende: I really did think that paris and I could have a future together.

Grace: And you can. It’s not too late, zende. Please. Come on. The door is still open.

Zende: At this point, I’m starting to wonder.

Grace: I can’t blame you. Paris has been giving mixed signals.

Zende: Dr. Buckingham, I don’t know what to tell you. It seems fairly clear to me that carter is the man that paris wants.

Grace: I know deep down inside, she has to know that he isn’t right for her.

Zende: Either way, that is not for me to decide. Paris is a strong, independent woman. She has to decide for herself.

Grace: If she would just get her head out of the damn clouds and start thinking clearly. I’m afraid she’s already been sucked in by carter just like… just like her sister was.

Zende: I don’t know about all that, but I told paris and carter that I would not stand in their way.

Grace: No! Come on, zende. Buck up! You have to keep fighting for paris, please! You have to keep fighting–

Paris: Mom. Stop. Look, I’ll always care about zende. He’s a great guy. But he knows how I feel about carter.

Carter: I know you’re devoted to eric and won’t jeopardize ruining your marriage.

Quinn: I owe that to him, carter.

Carter: And I owe it to him, too. Somehow, he found itithi w himself to forgive us, quinn, but it doesn’t mean I still don’t dream about wanting you. But I won’t interfere with your marriage ever again. And as for paris, well, she’s very intuitive. She’s already picked up on a few things.

Quinn: That doesn’t mean you have to jump back into a relationship with her.

Carter: Paris can cause problems for you if she goes back to eric. She can make him wonder if we’re sneaking around.

Quinn: But we’re not!

Carter: We know that. You just regained eric’s trust. I don’t want him to have any reason to doubt you again.

Quinn: I don’t want that either.

Carter: Exactly. So I have to stop paris from doing this to you. I have to shut it down.

Quinn: But– I– so– so you’re going to sacrifice your happiness by getting involved with a woman that you don’t love? No! Don’t do it, carter.

Baker: I’ll give you a moment alone. Once again, dr. Finnegan, I am sorry for the loss of your son.

Li: Thank you, chief baker.

[ Buzzer sounding ]

Sheila: If you’re here to lay into me, you may as well just save it.

Li: Oh, I haven’t even begun to give you a piece of my mind, sheila.

Sheila: I’m hurting too.

Li: You’re always playing victim, are you?

Sheila: I miss finn more than anything. And I’m– I’m paying for it now. I’m here, aren’t I? I– I am owning up to my mistakes.

Li: Because you have no other choice.

Sheila: Yeah, I’m really struggling here, li. I don’t have anyone to support me.

Li: I, I, I. Me, me, me. What a pathetic, selfish woman you are. I knew you were sick, but to shoot the man that you gave birth to? Then the mother of your grandchild?

Sheila: I didn’t mean to hurt him. I loved him. More than anything and I am haunted by what I did that night. All I ever wanted was… a chance to bond with him and hayes. And things were going so well. I– I was actually starting a relationship with him. Yeah, but now… my precious boy… I just can’t believe that… finn is gone forever. Everyone remembers the moment they heard…

Paris: I’m so sorry, zende.

Zende: No worries. It’s all good.

Paris: No. It’s not. My mom shouldn’t be in our business like this and putting you under so much pressure.

Zende: Paris, seriously, it’s okay. But, I feel like I should let you two talk. I’m not getting in the middle.

Grace: Zende, you don’t have to leave.

Zende: Really, it’s fine. I have some work I have to get done.

Paris: Mom, come on. That was embarrassing. I– I’m not a child. You can’t keep meddling in my life like this.

Grace: Sweetheart, I’m only looking out for your own best interest here.

Paris: You’re not understanding. I don’t need you to play matchmaker and think about how zende feels. You’re only making it worse for him.

Grace: I’m only trying to help.

Paris: No. Mom, stop. I can’t hear this today. I– I think you gotta leave.

Grace: Paris, come on now, sweetheart–

Paris: No, mom, I have– I have a lot to get done today. We can talk about this later.

Grace: Okay. I understand. I will go.

Paris: Thanks, mom.

Grace: But, I gotta say this. I think you’re headed for trouble.

Quinn: You don’t really want paris.

Carter: Because you know the woman that I really love. And I mean it, quinn. More and more everyday, but I know this– this– this between us, it can’t happen.

Quinn: No, it can’T. It’s– it’s a– it’d just be another betrayal to eric and to ridge. Do you really think they’re gonna forgive you for stealing zende’s girlfriend?

Carter: I’ll figure it out.

Quinn: Oh, come on. Listen to yourself. This is already so messy. Why are you putting yourself on the line for this woman? You– carter, you’re an incredible catch. You can have any woman on this planet.

Carter: Paris is beautiful. She’s incredibly intelligent, she’s talented, she’s caring, she has a lot of amazing qualities, quinn. I’d be lucky to be with a woman like her.

Quinn: Can you trust her with your heart?

Carter: I have to give it a shot.

Quinn: No, you don’t!

Carter: Don’t– don’t– don’t do that. Do not stand here knowing the way I feel about you telling me who I should be with.

Quinn: Carter.

Carter: No, no. Paris and I, we had something and even if it was just me trying to bury my feelings for you, even if that’s what I’m doing right now.

[ Carter sighing ]

Quinn: Carter, I hate to see you like this. I hate to know that I hurt you this badly.

Carter: Look, eric is totally committed to you. And I’m happy for you. I am, quinn, but I want that for myself.

Quinn: You deserve it.

Carter: And that’s why I’m doing this. That’s why I’m doing this, quinn. I’m tired of being alone, okay? I have to get on with my life.

Sheila: You’ve gotta hear me out. I– I never meant to hurt finn. It was– it was a terrible, terrible accident. I can’t live with myself like this. I don’t sleep at night knowing that I took the life of my boy.

Li: He is my boy. Mine. He will always be mine. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for finn. Nothing. For copd,

Paris: Carter?

Zende: I’ll make sure pierre schedules that meeting. I know steffy usually handles that kind of stuff, but we’ll all have to pick up the slack now that she’s gone for awhile.

Quinn: Steffy is too young to be a widow.

Zende: Yeah.

Quinn: You know, eric is so worried about his granddaughter. We just– you know, we all just want her and the kids to be okay.

Zende: Luckily, they realized it was sheila before she could hurt more people.

Quinn: I always knew she was dangerous, but this is next level psychotic.

Zende: Yeah, good thing she’s behind bars, off the streets, can’t ruin anymore lives.

Quinn: Hopefully, we never have to see or hear from sheila carter ever again.

Sheila: I never got to say goodbye to finn, see his final resting spot.

Li: And you never will.

Sheila: You don’t mean that.

Li: Oh, I do. More than you know.

Sheila: That breaks my heart.

Li: Yeah, I’m sure it does. You’re just angry that steffy didn’t die, leaving hayes without any parents.

Sheila: I would’ve raised my grandson.

Li: What a– what a horrifying thought that is. Thank god that precious baby will always be safe from you.

Sheila: I am not a monster, you know?

Li: You just keep telling yourself that, because you’re the only one who believes it.

Sheila: Finn believed in me. He believed I was a good person. Up until the very… last moment.

Li: God, you are delusional, aren’t you?

Sheila: Are we done yet?

Li: I heard they’re transferring you to a federal facility while you await your trial.

Sheila: Yeah, that’s what I’ve been told.

Li: I needed to see you before they shipped you away. In that jumpsuit. The loneliness in your eyes. That’s where you belong, sheila. Behind a barbed wire fence in a cold prison cell. That’s where you’ll be for the rest of your miserable life. And when the trial begins, I will be testifying and I will make sure that you rot in prison until the day you die!

Sheila: You are starting to get on my nerves.

Li: I don’t care. What you did was pure evil. Finn is a wonderful, young man.

Sheila: Is? Don’t you mean was?

Li: Yes. And he’s gone because of you, sheila. At least I know that finn is in a place where you will never hurt him again.

Officer: Time’s up.

Sheila: You haven’t seen the last of me.

Officer: Come on, sheila. It’s time to go.

Sheila: Mike.

[ Dramatic music ]

Deacon: Wait a second. Wait. You’re barring me from the property?

Brooke: Something I should have done a while ago.

Hope: Okay, so this is not coming from ridge?

Brooke: No, honey, this is coming from me. Ridge voiced his opinion before and I never listened. I should have listened the first 100 times he said it. But I am now. And it’s very clear to me. I just hope it’s not too late. You can’t be here, deacon. Not anymore. I’m sorry. That’s just the way it has to be.

Deacon: You’re forgetting one little detail. My daughter lives here.

Brooke: Right, but L.A. Is a big place. I mean, there’s a lot of places that you can actually meet up. Just doesn’t have to be here. And, honey, I do support your relationship with your father, but I need some support, too. And I love my husband, and I want him to move back here. I’m not going to risk my marriage one more day.

[Door opening and shutting]

Ridge: No, no, no, no, no, no. Why? Why? What are you doing here?

Bill: Come on, come on, don’t be that way. Give us a kiss. A hug?

Ridge: Please, enough. Come on.

Bill: Nothing? Wow. Is this how you treat all your visitors?

Ridge: Only the ones I miss so much.

Bill: I detect a note of sarcasm.

Ridge: What– what do you want? I’m busy.

Bill: Busy doing what? I don’t see a needle and thread in your hand. What? What? All right, look, I’m just trying to lighten things up a little bit, okay? It’s been pretty heavy. I wanted to come see you in person and reiterate how sorry I am about what happened to steffy and her family.

Ridge: I appreciate you saying that. Steffy’s had a really tough time of it. So she took the kids and left town for a while.

Bill: Well, that’s probably a good idea. I mean, I– I can’t even imagine the shock and the trauma that steffy experienced. Watching her husband killed by his own birth mother? Being shot herself? I mean, sheila has always been a qualified nut, but to shoot her grandchild’s mom, to kill her own son? I mean, that is a special brand of evil.

Ridge: At least we can agree on that.

Bill: How about that. Something we agree on.

Ridge: Huh.

Bill: We normally were on the opposite sides of an issue. Like what sheila did to brooke. And how brooke should be treated as a result.

Hope: Mom, surely there must be some kind of compromise. I mean, can he at least come to the cabin?

Brooke: Honey, honey, I’m not budging on this. Deacon can’t be on the property at all.

Deacon: Don’t you think it’s a little extreme?

Brooke: This is not up for debate.

Deacon: I want a couple of minutes alone with your mom.

Brooke: Please just leave.

Deacon: I swear. I swear. Just a couple of minutes. Please, hear me out.

Brooke: Deacon!

Deacon: Brooke, just a few minutes.

Liam: It’s up to you, brooke. I mean, if you’re not comfortable, we can stay. If– if deacon doesn’t want to go… you know…

Deacon: I wouldn’t want liam to have to throw me out.

Hope: Mom, come on, please?

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: Fine. Five minutes.

Hope: Okay. Dad, make them count. I’m taking his snacks.

Deacon: Hey, I know you’re upset, and I know you’re trying to save your marriage. But please, don’t do this. One prilosec otc in the morning

Liam: So, uh, couldn’t help but notice you holding back a little bit at your mom’S.

Hope: Oh, I just, I didn’t think my voice was needed.

Liam: Yeah, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have an opinion about brooke banning your dad from the property.

Hope: Well, at this point, I don’t think I’m really entitled to one, so.

Liam: You are. Deacon’s your father, and he comes to the cabin to visit with you and his grandkid.

Hope: And look at you, advocating for my dad!

Liam: No, absolutely not! You bite your tongue. That’s not what I’m doing. I’m trying to get to the bottom of how you feel about your mom laying down this law that keeps your dad outside the gates.

Hope: I’m not thrilled. I feel bad for him because clearly he didn’t see it coming. And if this were a few months ago, I mean, yeah, I would have fought really hard for him, trying to change my mom’s mind, but I already tried that. Look where it got us.

Liam: Okay. Reality check. You’re not… actually blaming yourself for ridge and brooke’s marital problems, are you?

Hope: Well, ridge was convinced that if deacon was hanging around, it would cause problems for him and my mother. And it did. But I didn’t listen. I kept pushing and pushing. And so, yeah, I guess I do wonder if I hadn’t gotten involved that maybe they might still possibly be together. So, yeah, I don’t think anyone needs me chiming in on this one.

Liam: Wow. That is, uh, like, superhuman mature of you.

Hope: Ha. Trying. But really, if it makes my mom happy having ridge back in the house, then so be it.

Liam: Well, I’m sure it’s all going to work out one way or another. By the way, we’re, like, alone with no kids. Why on earth are we talking about other people’s problems?

Hope: Why are we even saying words at this point?

Liam: Right? No words.

Hope: I don’t–

Ridge: All right. If you’re going to insist on coming over here in this cloud of musk, can we at least talk about something that we both agree on?

Bill: Like what a psycho sheila is and how she destroys everything in her path?

Ridge: That she should stay in prison for the rest of her days. Yeah, like that.

Bill: If you understand that and feel that way, why are you giving sheila so much power?

Ridge: Not sure what that means.

Bill: She is holding your marriage hostage, forrester. She targeted brooke. Brooke never would have gotten plastered after years of sobriety. Brooke is sheila’s victim as well.

Ridge: I know that!

Bill: If you know that, why are you living at your daddy’s house, sucking your thumb like you’re the injured party? Feeling sorry for yourself? Go home. Go back to your wife.

Deacon: I appreciate the chance to have my say before you throw me out into the night.

Brooke: Just say it, deacon. I don’t want to spend a lot of time on something that I’ve already decided.

Deacon: You seem nervous.

Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Deacon: What’s the matter? You afraid forrester’s going to come barging in here? God forbid, find me in your living room?

Brooke: Well, if he does, from his point of view, it’s going to look like I’m throwing you in his face!

Deacon: Oh, come on, brooke. Come on, this is ridiculous. I’ve had access here for months, and with the exception of one little mishap, you and I have been great. We’ve been acting as parents. Tentative friends, even.

Brooke: Okay. Okay. I didn’t think I was going to have to explain this to you, but I will. This mishap was more than just a kiss. I mean, you and I have a history together that has created a lot of damage for people, including ridge. And that kiss never would have happened, deacon, if I’d listened to ridge in the first place. And now I am just standing in the ruins of my marriage, desperately trying to save it somehow. And you coming and going whenever you please, that’s certainly doesn’t help. So that is why I am making this call.

Deacon: My daughter lives here. My granddaughter lives here. Come on– I mean– look, we’re a family, too. We created a beautiful daughter together. That’s got to count for something. And most of the time, you’re aware of that. But now, for some reason, you’re getting all twisted around because of ridge and his stupid, childish games, running back to his dad’s house. It’s getting in your head. I know that you think banning me from here is somehow going to fix it. It’s not. It’s not. Please, don’t let him come between us. Don’t let ridge dictate your life. I was on an antidepressant,

Hope: I have a surprise for you that I think you’re going to like.

Liam: Oh, I like your surprises.

Hope: Hmm. Well, it involves texting donna and asking if she wanted to have a slumber party with beth. And she said, “of course.” And douglas is over at thomas’S. Which means…

Liam: Which means…

Hope: We have the house all to ourselves. All… night… long.

Liam: Best surprise ever.

Hope: Mmm. Well, that is just the first of many surprises that I have in store for you.

Liam: Oh.

Hope: I am so lucky to have you for a husband. And I love you so, so much.

Ridge: You know what I like about you, bill?

Bill: Hm?

Ridge: Absolutely nothing. I don’t have to explain my relationship to you. It’s none of your business.

Bill: All right. You can have that attitude, but it ain’t going to get you anywhere. All right? I’m trying to counsel you, give you some good advice. Go back to your wife while you still can. Don’t be freaking stupid. Don’t let the grass grow, forrester. Do it now.

Brooke: So you think I can’t make decisions on my own? Ridge is not dictating my life. This is what I want.

Deacon: You think this is coming from a place of being all about me and that’s only partially true. You are a beautiful, dynamic, smart businesswoman. You’re a chemist, for god’s sake. He ought to be groveling on the ground, begging for you to take him back.

Brooke: Okay. I heard you out.

Deacon: Have you? Have you heard a word I’ve said?

Brooke: Now, I want you to leave. Because I want my husband back. I want to be back in my marriage. You said you love me.

Deacon: I do.

Brooke: Okay. Well, then just stay away. Don’t make trouble for me by inciting ridge. Please show me the respect that you say he doesn’T. Let me choose my life, my marriage, my husband. For people who are a little intense about hydration.

Hope: Hmm.

Liam: Hm?

Hope: Hmm. Just you.

Liam: Just me. Just you. And just us.

Hope: You know, I’ve, um… I’ve been thinking and what if we just get in the car and drive down the coast one of these weekends and just stop wherever feels right?

Liam: Sounds good to me.

Hope: Hm. Hey. What are you thinking about?

Liam: My beautiful wife.

Brooke: Just come

home, ridge.

I’m going to make you wonder

why you stayed away so long.

You and I make up better

than anybody.

Ridge: Oh man,

that’s absolutely true.

[ Phone ringing ] Hey, logan.

Brooke: I’ve been thinking about you.

Ridge: Well, there’s a coincidence.

Brooke: Good thoughts, I hope.

Ridge: The best.

Brooke: I miss you, ridge. This isn’t right. We shouldn’t be on the phone together. You should be here in our house, our home with me, your wife.

Ridge: That’s how it was supposed to be.

Brooke: And it will be. We will be together again. I’m sure of it. I told deacon and hope that he is no longer welcome here. I’m not letting anyone or anything keep us apart ever again. And certainly not deacon.

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: Okay. I love you. Sweet dreams.

Ridge: This romance is

going to last forever.

Brooke: I love you, ridge.

Ridge: I love you, logan.

Brooke: You were right. You were right all along. I never should have let deacon infiltrate our lives. I never should have let him into our home.

Ridge: Even though he’s hope’s dad?

Brooke: Hope can still have a relationship with him. But I won’T. My future’s with you. Together in our home. And I’m going to make sure that deacon and hope know that. I’m going to make it very clear.

Hope: So, are steffy and the kids getting settled?

Liam: Yeah. Safe and sound. Apparently, um, kelly’s been making lists on the plane of all the places she wants to see in europe. A lot of castles.

Hope: Well, then, it sounds like this trip will be a good distraction for them.

Lia being so far away.

Liam: Yeah, but I think I’ll manage considering I have something to distract myself.

Hope: Oh, then I am happy to oblige.

Liam: Oh.

[ Knock on door ]

Deacon: I’m worried about her, hope.

Quinn: This is baD.

Carter: Eric’s smart ring is sending you an alarm?

Quinn: Well, if his vitals change drastically, it sends me an alert. I mean, why did his– why did his blood pressure and heart rate go up so drastically? Look at this, carter. I think I need to go to him. I think eric may be in trouble.

Eric: Okay.

[ Donna panting ] Okay. I think, uh…

Donna: Ahh.

Eric: I think I’m actually speechless.

Donna: And you just made me wanna shout from the rooftops.

Eric: Okay, good. Good!

Donna: Don’t worry, I won’t, I won’T. I just… this little rendezvous is just– I can’t even speak. It’s just going to be our secret.

Eric: Okay, okay.

Donna: Ahhh. Oh my goodness, your heart is just racing.

Eric: Yes, well, that’s actually a very good thing, after what we’ve just been through together. I would be amazed if it wasn’T.

Carter: You said eric’s at the club.

Quinn: Yeah.

Carter: Okay, so he’s working out. His heart rate’s gonna go up.

Quinn: No, no, no. Not like this. This is an extreme spike.

Carter: If something was wrong, eric would call you.

Quinn: But what if he can’t? That’s why I gave him the ring in the first place, to make sure my husband is okay. I– if something is wrong, I need to be there for him. I would hate it if something happened to eric and he was all alone.

Donna: I just love how close we are. No self-consciousness, no reason to pretend.

Eric: No. We know each other too well for that.

Donna: Yet, you still find ways to surprise me.

[ Giggling ]

Eric: I’d love to keep trying. But I can’T. Donna, we can’t keep doing this. This… this affair has to end.

Brooke: You don’t have to worry about deacon anymore.

Ridge: Really? You gotta tell him he can’t be on the property.

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: Can’t be around you.

Brooke: Right. I’m going to tell him.

Ridge: Hmm.

Brooke: And then after I do, you and I get to put all of this behind us, and go back to being the fun-loving, wonderful couple that we’ve always been. And, I can’t wait to show you just how much I’ve missed you.

Our craftsmen begin each day

Carter: What’s happening now?

Quinn: Nothing. His heart rate is going back down to normal.

Carter: That’s good. The ring’s not sending you any more alerts.

Quinn: But it was so high though. I mean, it has to be dangerous, right? I mean, maybe I should– maybe I should call his doctor. Or I can call bridget. I know that she would want to help her father.

Carter: You don’t even know if anything’s wrong. Wh– why don’t you call eric? Hearing his voice will make you feel better.

Quinn: Okay.

Eric: This isn’t fair. It’s not fair to quinn or to you.

Donna: Uh, ah, you don’t hear me complaining, eric.

Eric: Yeah.

[ Phone ringing ] It’s quinn.

[ Phone ringing ] Hi.

Quinn: Oh, eric. I’m so glad you answered.

Eric: Yeah, uh, is everything all right?

Quinn: Oh yeah, yeah, no, I’m– I’m– I’m doing great. Um, are you done with your match?

Eric: M– my match?

Quinn: Or your game? I– I’m sorry, I don’t know what they call it in pickle ball.

Eric: Oh, yeah, yeah. Just wrapping up.

Quinn: Uh, well, how was it? Uh, was it good? Did you– did you get your blood pumping?

Eric: I did.

Quinn: Good. That’s good. Uh, listen, I– I know you’re driven and you love a challenge, but just don’t overdo it, okay?

Eric: I’m just cooling down. It shouldn’t be long now. I’ll be home soon.

Deacon: I feel for brooke, I do. What sheila did to her, that was terrible. She was a victim. Why can’t forrester see that? Uh, look, now that he knows what sheila did, that should change everything.

Hope: Uh, mom was hoping that it would.

Liam: Hey, at least she knows the truth now.

Deacon: Brooke is so… she’s so amazing. You know? She’s passionate, she’s devoted. She’s got everything in the world going for her, and she feels like a failure because her husband won’t come back to her. She deserves a guy who actually appreciates her.

Liam: Huh, a guy like you?

Brooke: Just come home, ridge. I’m going to make you wonder why you stayed away so long.

Ridge: Mmm.

Brooke: You and I make up better than anybody.

Ridge: Oh, man, that’s absolutely true. And you know why? It’s because we’ve had so much practice.

Brooke: I’m just worried we’re not going to be able to try anymore because our life is going to be so perfect.

Ridge: Mmm.

Brooke: I just love you. And you are my husband. And I want a future with you. I’m not going to let anything stand in the way of that. We have some great memories, wonderful experiences together. I know that you remember some of those, right?

It’s still you and me here

making destiny appear

after all these years

the laughs and the tears

it’s still you and me here

making destiny appear


Ridge: I’m never going to forget who we were.

Brooke: Since we are going to be together, we’re going to have new experiences and new memories. Deacon cannot be a part of that. He’s not going to be a part of our lives whatsoever. I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo

Quinn: You were right, carter. Eric is fine.

Carter: Good.

Quinn: These workouts are doing wonders for his tension.

Carter: I wish they were doing the same for you.

Quinn: I know I shouldn’t worry about him. I mean, eric is healthy and he’s– he’s fit. He actually has an extra spring in his step lately.

Carter: Well, I’m sure you can take all the credit for that. Eric’s a lucky man, getting to come home to you. Spending his nights holding you in his arms.

Quinn: I think you’ll understand if I don’t tell eric that you said that.

Carter: But you’re flattered I did.

Quinn: I need to be getting home.

Donna: The phone call from quinn really flustered you.

Eric: She sounded a little concerned.

Donna: Do you think she suspects, or…

Eric: No.

Donna: Good. And– and you know, if this is the end, she– she will never.

Eric: Yeah. Is it– is it the end?

Eric: Not of how much you mean to me, no. No to the end of how important you are to me. The gratitude I feel for you. Or the appreciation.

Donna: Mine for you too. Uh, I, um, I’ll always cherish these moments here. And you are always going to be dear to me. This was, um, an unexpected adventure. But I never want to hurt you.

[ Sighing ] You are my honey bear.

Ridge: There he is, our coo, deep in thought. Are you dreaming about profits?

Carter: Yeah, I was, uh, definitely dreaming.

[ Ridge sighing ] It seems like you’re lost in thought too. How’s steffy?

Ridge: She’s okay. She made the right choice for herself. And I’m trying to make the right choice for brooke and me.

Hope: Mom wants ridge.

Liam: And only ridge, apparently.

Deacon: Look, you don’t have to protect her from me. I mean, brooke’s happiness is all I care about. Yours too. Which technically means, I guess I care about yours.

Liam: Aw.

Deacon: Look, it’s abundantly clear to me that brooke is never going to be truly happy with ridge.

Brooke: Deacon, why are you still here?

[ Door closing ]

Quinn: Eric, you’re home!

Eric: Yes. I– I thought you would still be at the office.

Quinn: No, you said you were coming home so I wanted to see you.

Eric: Thank you.

Quinn: Ah. I, uh, I missed you today. Well, not just today, I– I’ve been missing you a lot lately.

[ Glasses clinking ] (Vo) single-serve fancy feast petites

Quinn: Mmm.

Eric: Mm-hmm.

Quinn: So, did you have a good time at the club?

Eric: Yes.

Quinn: You’ve been going there a lot lately.

Eric: I have, yes, I know.

Quinn: I’m just happy that you found something that excites you so much.

Eric: Well, it takes me away from you, though. I’m very aware of that.

Quinn: No, that’s okay. You’re just– you’re getting used to a new routine. I’m just, I’m so happy that you’ve committed to working out, taking care of yourself, getting your heart rate up and… I mean, pickle ball, that seems to be a pretty challenging sport. You know, all that running around, working off all of that tension. I can see a change in you too. You just seem more… I don’t know, relaxed when you come home. And I think that’s really important for a man who is as busy and driven as you are.

Eric: So’s this, though, quinn.

Quinn: Mmm.

Eric: Know this, my conversations with you, I cherish those. The way we’re able to talk about our– our creativity, and our, uh, artistic processes. I mean, that’s very exciting to me too. You’re this wonderful artist. It’s the first thing that drew me to you, you know. I appreciate very much that we can share that, you and I, the beauty and creativity.

Quinn: Yeah. And, martinis.

Eric: And martinis.

[ Quinn laughing ]

Quinn: I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately, too. You know, how we– how we inspire and encourage each other. And I think that’s important. Especially– especially in our marriage, you know. We’ve– we’ve had to overcome so many challenges. It’s kind of our foundation. It’s how we began and where we keep coming back to.

Eric: I don’t have that with anyone else. I never will. I admire you so much, quinn.

Quinn: Eric, my love, I admire you. And I am so thankful that you’ve given us and our marriage another chance. I am so grateful to be married to such a kind, decent, loving, loyal man.

Carter: I can see how much you miss her.

[ Ridge sighing ]

Eric: I do miss her. She wants me to come home and part of me wants to do that. She says that deacon is not going to be a problem for us anymore. He’s not going to be in our house. He’s not going to be in our lives. We’ll see.

Deacon: I’m sorry, brooke. I had to come back. I was telling liam and hope about everything that sheila had done to you. It makes me sick. Not just the fact that she targeted you, but the fact that ridge doesn’t seem to care.

Brooke: He does. He understands.

Deacon: How can you say that? Do you know that your mom went over there and ridge sent her away so he could be alone with taylor?

Brooke: Deacon, stop. It didn’t really happen like that.

Deacon: It’s– it’s not right.

Liam: Wait. Did ridge send you away?

Brooke: No, I, ah, I went away so that taylor and ridge could talk about steffy. And then when I came back, he was there alone. And I stayed with him for a while and… well, I– I think he might be coming back to me, might be coming home. I just get that feeling. But now that I come home and I see you here for the third time today, I know what I have to do, deacon. Something I should have done a long time ago.

Hope: Mom, what are you talking about?

Brooke: I am talking about deacon.

Deacon: About me?

Brooke: Mm-hmm. You’re a lightening rod to ridge. You always have been and you always will be. I don’t want you to be here on this property any more. You can spend as much time with hope as you can, but not here. Not in my home with ridge.

Deacon: Come on, you can’t mean that! Look, he tried this before and you told him no.

Brooke: No, this isn’t ridge. This is me. I’m saying this. This is my decision. So please, listen. I can’t have you here, deacon. I mean, yes, I want you to have a relationship with your father and you should. But I can’t have deacon coming and going whenever he pleases. This is wrong. It’s not going to work. So, please, just– just respect me. Respect my wishes. I want my husband back. I want ridge back home with me.

Taylor: Reconnecting with with you has been… it’s been great. I’m– I am so thankful for these moments.

Ridge: I am, too. I’m thankful… for the food all the way from san gabriel.

Taylor: Yay.

Ridge: And I’m thankful for you being back in my life.

Brooke: Taylor is there with ridge right now. She doesn’t even care that he’s still my husband.

Deacon: Does he even remember that he has a wife, that he’s got a marriage to come home to? Because I’ll tell you what, if you were my wife, I would never forget.

Donna: No. I–I have kept quiet for so long, and I just don’t want to anymore. I hate the idea of you going home to a wife that– that doesn’t even make you happy. Maybe it’s just for the best, eric. Maybe if you finally, finally leave, quinn.

Carter: I admire you, quinn. Your commitment to eric, your marriage. I just can’t stop thinking about what could have been. The life we almost– you’re a remarkable woman.

Donna: You say that you care about quinn. But does she make you happy?

Eric: I don’t know.

Donna: Shouldn’t you, though? Shouldn’t you know, if your wife brings you joy?

Eric: She used to.

Donna: Life is so short, eric. Why are you going to spend it it with somebody that you can’t even trust? You deserve so much more. You deserve to be happy and fulfilled and– a life that I could give you.

Quinn: You admire my commitment to eric? There’s nothing really to admire. It’s– it’s the easiest thing in the world. Who couldn’t devote themselves to the– that sweet man? I’m committed to eric because his commitment to me has never wavered. And it never will.

Brooke: Le– deacon, please.

Deacon: Ridge is like the luckiest guy in the world. And it’s not ’cause of all his money, and it’s not ’cause of the family he was born into. It– it’s ’cause he has you. And the guy– no! He doesn’t appreciate you!

Brooke: Stop. Please, wait! Just– I know why you’re saying these things. You’re saying it to support me, me and make me feel better. And you’re trying to help. But this isn’t really helping. I need you to believe that ridge and I do have a connection and that we have a bond that isn’t broken. And that he’s gonna come back to me, no matter how many takeouts taylor brings over to his house. Ridge still believes that I make him happy. And he knows that I love him, that we love each other. I going to remind him of that. I’m gonna make him make him realize that we can still be husband and wife, and that we still have a– a wonderful future ahead of us.

Taylor: I love seeing you happy. Hm. I’m glad I can give you some– some much needed smiles.

Ridge: You can, even in these challenging times.

Taylor: Especially in these challenging times. I know you’re in a difficult place. You don’t want to hurt anybody.

Ridge: She’s my wife.

Taylor: I know. You’re a good man, ridge. You know, no matter what– what happens with us, or with you and brooke, we– we both love that you have a huge heart. That’s why we both love you.

Ridge: Hm. Facing expensive vitamin c creams with dull results?

Deacon: You got to do what’s right for you. I just want you to know that I’m always here for you. If he ever disappoints you, again, you know, like, telling you to leave when taylor’s around, something like that.

Brooke: So they could have a conversation about their daughter. I left so they could talk about all the important things going on with steffy. But you know, coming home and seeing you here, twice, in one day, unannounced got me to think. I know what I have to do. Taylor has had enough time with ridge. And I am his wife, not taylor. And he is going to come back to me, maybe even tonight.

Eric: Donna, I hear what you’re saying, I just– I just don’t know what to think.

Donna: Remember what I– I was saying before? Sometimes we just think too much? It might be, you just have to feel. I know you care about quinn, and you. You– you respect her, but I just have one question. Are you in love? I know you were, but if you’re not anymore. Eric, you–

Eric: I should just cut my losses and run?

Donna: Well, quinn has a mean streak, you better run fast!

[ Both chuckling ]

Eric: Yeah. You’re always able to make me laugh. Thank you.

Donna: And it makes me so happy to put a smile on this face.

Eric: Good. Donna. Donna.

Donna: I– I don’t wanna talk anymore to you. What was I saying? Just– just feel. Just feel.

Carter: Speaking of that sweet man, how’s that new, uh, smart ring working out?

Quinn: Oh, it’s good. He likes it. And I like it too. I mean, it gives me peace of mind being able to keep track of my husband’s health.

Carter: And without him knowing about it, right? You still haven’t told him it’s more than just a ring?

Quinn: No, no. I mean, I know it’s silly, but I– I don’t want eric thinking I’m worried about him or– or that I think he’s weak or fragile. I just– he’s so important to me. I– if I lost him, I just, I don’t–

Carter: I wonder if he knows… if he knows how far you’d go, the steps you’d take. Eric is so damn lucky to have you in his life.

Thomas: Hey, mom, you home?

Taylor: Thomas, hi! I was just about to text you.

Thomas: Really?

Taylor: Yeah, yeah. I need to see you and douglas for dinner A.S.A.P.

Thomas: Okay, well, let’s plan it.

Taylor: Okay, and– and you might want to warn him now that kelly and hayes are gone. All of my grandma attention is going to be focused on him.

Thomas: I will let him know.

[ Laughing ]

Taylor: Okay.

Thomas: Um, so how are you doing with that, by the way?

Taylor: With what?

Thomas: Steffy not being here. And the kids being gone. I mean, that– this was… a house full of energy, you know, these kids running around and everything. And then I just– I hope it’s not lonely now.

Taylor: Thank you. I– I’m not going to lie, the– the vibe is so different. I’m so used to walking in the door and– and kelly beelining right into my arms and– and spending more time with your father, and– actually, I was actually just with him.

Thomas: Yeah?

Taylor: Yeah. Yeah. We had dinner together.

Thomas: Oh, uh, I hope it was somewhere fancy.

Taylor: No. It was– it was takeout um, at your grandfather’S.

Thomas: Ah, yeah. Uh, I just– heh, I– I don’t think he should be living there. I think he should be here with you.

Taylor: You know, I’m not upset, I’m– I’m really not. Your father needs to figure out what he wants in his life, you know? And he moved in with his dad, not with brooke. That’s a big step for ridge.

Thomas: Yeah.

Ridge: Hey, dad, is that you? Thought I heard the front door.

Brooke: Hi. It’s me. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Quinn: I’m the lucky one. I mean, after what I did to eric, I– I’m– I’m beyond thankful that he was able to forgive me.

Carter: Yeah, things could have ended very differently. Could’ve fired both of us. Divorced you. Of course, though, that means you and I–

Quinn: Look, are things perfect between eric and me? I mean– no. No, they’re not. Things are still… a little difficult. But, you know, I’m– I’m willing to… do the work. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to– to put our marriage back on track. And I have to believe that– that someday soon, eric and I will be fully back together.

Eric: Donna. Donna. As much as I love this, and as much as I would like it to continue on, I can’T. Now, look, I shouldn’t be here. I wasn’t going to come. But I had to because I wanted to tell you this in person.

[ Donna stammering ]

Donna: Wait– what, what?

Eric: Donna, what we’re doing, this, it has to stop. We can’t do this anymore.

Thomas: And you and dad have so many memories together, and you’re still making more, despite his decision to move out, you’re– you’re hanging out with each other and hopefully more memories to come, right?

Taylor: Yeah, I hope so. We had– we had fun. At least after brooke left.

Thomas: Why was brooke there?

Taylor: Well, she stopped by, um, she was not happy to see me, especially since your father and I were about to share a meal.

Thomas: Hmm. As if that’s any of her business.

Thomas: Do I need to remind you, thomas, she and ridge are married. They have vows together.

Thomas: You’re right. And I’m sure somewhere in those vows, it says, “don’t make out with other people.” Ugh, okay. You know, I’m just, I’m surprised that she didn’t come in, grab a fork and try and join in.

Taylor: Well, she would have if she could have, but, ridge didn’t let that happen. He, uh, he asked brooke to leave.

Thomas: Huh.

Ridge: Logan. What are you doing?

[ Laughs ]

Brooke: Don’t worry, ridge, I saw that taylor’s car was gone. I know you needed to talk to her. I get that. And I can respect it. You have a lot of things you have to talk about. But so do we. That’s why I came back here. I couldn’t wait one more day without telling you how much I truly miss you. And I know you miss me, too.

Ahhh, not again.

Quinn: Eric is such a good man. I hate to think that there’s still some part of him that… feels hurt by what I did.

[ Phone alarm chiming ] Oh, oh, sorry. I have to get this.

[ Alarm continuing ] Oh. Oh, no.

Carter: Something wrong?

Quinn: It’s the– it’s the ring app thing. It’s– it’s telling me that eric’s heart rate, his blood pressure, it’s– it’s going through the roof.

Carter: Well, where is he? Is he at home?

Quinn: No, he’s at the club.

Carter: Okay, well, it’s not that far from here, if you’re worried, then–

Quinn: Maybe I should go there. Make sure he’s okay.

[ Panting ]

>Donna: Eric, are you okay?

Eric: Yeah, I’m okay. I’m all right. I’m all right. I just need– I– I just need to catch my breath. All right?

Donna: Me too.

Eric: Oh. Well. I’m not very good at breaking up, am I?

[ Both laughing ]

Donna: No, no, not at all.

Thomas: Dad actually asked brooke to leave?

Taylor: He did. He said that he and I needed some time together.

Thomas: Well, I– I’m glad he’s finally accepting that.

Taylor: I mean, I– I think maybe he’s starting to realize that the cycle that he and brooke get into, the behaviors on either side never change. This last time, her defending deacon, I’m not sure he can get past that.

Ridge: Of course I miss you. I miss our home.

Brooke: Well, that’s why I’m here. To let you know that I want our home to be a place where you feel completely at peace. Relaxed. No concern, no angst. And definitely not a place where deacon stops by. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. And it’s nice to know that, uh, sheila played a part in my drinking.

Ridge: I will never forgive her for what she did.

Brooke: Months and months ago, I– I was pushing my daughter to have a relationship with her father, regardless of your concerns of what you were trying to tell me. And I wasn’t listening to you. And I’m sorry. I mean, it shouldn’t have been like that. A wife has to be there for her husband and, consider what he’s saying, what he’s feeling. So, that’s what I’m going to do. Just because sheila was the reason I drank doesn’t mean that, uh, I’m not responsible for kissing deacon and having him spend the night. I want you to know that I am going to listen to you from now on. I am going to hear what you have to say. Because that’s really important and deacon is no longer welcome at our house. I mean, yes. My daughter and her father, they can have a relationship together, but it’s somewhere else. It’s not at our home, our house. And I mean that. Because I do love you so much. I just– I want you to come home. Home. And I want you to believe that you and I have a future together. That we can still be husband and wife.

Taylor: I don’t think it’s asking too much that ridge and me want to spend a little time together.

Brooke: Alone?

Taylor: Alone, together. Yes.

Brooke: I get it. Steffy left town with kelly and hayes and you, as parents, you’re concerned about her.

Taylor: Yes. Yes, wouldn’t you be? Uh, especially after everything our daughter’s gone through.

Brooke: Yes, of course. But if you’re second-guessing this situation and if you think she needs more support while she’s away, why didn’t you just go with her?

Taylor: Ah, wow, um, are you suggesting that I have ulterior motives, brooke?

Brooke: Why would you come here with food to see ridge? What is this little scene that you’re creating, taylor? What is it? Something behind this?

Carter: I think about you all the time. I can’t concentrate. I can’t sleep at night and when I do, I dream about you. Wanting you, everything we had, needing you to want me, too.

Quinn: Carter–

Carter: I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. I realize that your loyalty is with your husband. But, quinn, for me to stand here and not hold you in my arms, it’s– it’s so damn hard. To remember what we had, and not want that connection, that passion back.

Carter: I probably sound like a crazy man.

Quinn: No. You’re just– telling how you feel.

Carter: Heh! Yeah, to a married woman I had an intense affair with. A woman whose life, whose marriage I almost ruined.

Quinn: Ugh, I’m just as responsible as you are. Maybe more.

Carter: But you moved on. Quinn, you’re back with eric. You’re rebuilding your trust. Me, I’m stuck and it’s like my feelings for you won’t let me move forward.

Quinn: Oh, I’m sorry.

Carter: I’m not. How could I possibly be sorry? To have had what I had with you, quinn, I’ve never felt more alive in my life. That’s because of you.

Quinn: Listen to me. Carter, I– I know this has been really hard for you. I– I hate that for you. But my commitment is to eric. It has to be.

Carter: I know, I know. But these feelings I have for you, I’m always going to have for you, and it’s driving me crazy, okay? It’s driving me crazy more and more every day.

Donna: Guess who?

[ Giggling ]

Eric: Well, I– I might need a hint.

Donna: Yeah? How about… now?

[ Giggle ] How’s my honey bear?

Eric: Well, I’m a lot better now that you’re here.

Donna: Eric… what’s going on?

Taylor: My god, brooke! You’re putting ridge in the middle again.

Brooke: No, I’m not. He’s not in the middle. He’s still married to me. And if it weren’t for sheila, he would be living with me right now.

Taylor: Okay, okay. Let’s pretend that’s true. Let’s pretend that sheila never did anything to you. That night never happened with deacon, you and ridge are still together, and you’re not separated. Now would you still be upset with ridge if– if he wanted to spend time with me because something terrible happened to our daughter and she left town?

Brooke: I’m very respectful of steffy’s situation and I can understand how you’d be worried as a parent. Any parent would be. But, taylor, you can still talk to her. It’s not like she fell off the face of the earth. All you have to do is pick up the phone. Or video call. And ridge and you and all of us will be there for her, and for the kids, no matter where she is. Now that they’re gone, ridge has time to spend with himself. You know, focus on his life, on his future, a future that he committed to with me, when we exchanged our vows with one another. Whatever gives you life

Carter: Look, I know that, I know eric still loves you.

Quinn: He– he’s devoted, he’s loyal, and he deserves the same thing from me. I– I can’t– I can’t hurt him again.

Carter: Look, eric’s important to me too. He’s given me opportunities that I– I could’ve only dreamed of.

Quinn: And you made the most of them. You’re the best coo that forrester could ever have.

Carter: If that’s your way of telling me to concentrate on my job and stop thinking about what can never be then–

Quinn: I’m saying think of eric.

Carter: I am thinking of eric. That’s why I’m not holding you right now and never letting go. Quinn, I’m trying to deny my feelings for you, okay, but I can’T.

Quinn: Okay. What I’m saying is we know what happened before, when we let things get out of control. The sneaking around, the betrayal. We both don’t want that to happen again, right? And I cannot betray eric again. I can’t do that to a man who I trust with my whole heart.

Eric: I apologize. I have, uh, I have a lot on my mind.

Donna: You wanna talk about it? I’m a really attentive listener, among other things.

Eric: Yeah, you– you are good at that, getting me to smile, getting me out of myself. It’s good.

Donna: It’s a gift.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: And I love being able to do that for you too.

Eric: Oh, donna.

Donna: Wha– what is it? Some– are you sure you’re okay? What?

Eric: While I was here, while I was waiting for you, I couldn’t help, uh, thinking. Asking myself, wh– what am I, what am I doing? And I love being here with you, I do. But I can’t, I can’t help thinking–

Donna: You know what?

Eric: About quinn.

Donna: Sometimes thinking is just so overrated.

Eric: It is?

Donna: Yeah. Yeah, even some experts agree. I was just reading about it in a medical journal the other day.

Eric: Uh, uh, you were?

Donna: Yeah, medical journal. Magazine. Okay, I heard a bunch of baristas talking about it.

[ Eric laughing ] See? More laughter, less thinking. You’re welcome.

Taylor: I am aware that ridge made a commitment to you, brooke, you don’t have to keep reminding me.

Brooke: Well, I would hope I wouldn’t have to. But, when I walk in on what I just did.

Taylor: What you walked in on was ridge and me about to share some food. We were discussing our daughter. I– I don’t understand–

Ridge: May I say something, please, ladies?

Brooke and taylor: Fine.

Ridge: Thank you. I moved over here because I’m trying to figure out my life. And I didn’t ask anyone to wait for me to make a choice. I just need time. A lot of things have happened and I’m trying to process it.

Brooke: Ah, that’s true for all of us.

Ridge: Yes. But it’s especially true for the two of us. Our son-in-law got killed. Steffy was in the hospital. Sitting there for days after days, just waiting for her to come back to us. And she’s okay. But our lives turned upside down. Our family is– we as parents, need to spend some time together.

Brooke: Yeah. I get it. So, you’re asking me to leave.

Ridge: I’m asking you to understand. I’ll see you at the office.

Brooke: Mm hm. Goodnight. My lovely husband. With golo, I’ve lost 13 inches in my waist.

Donna: Stealing moments with you like this. Sharing laughter, and– and joy, and love. Yes, I said “love.” You know that you’re always going to be the great love of my life, eric. And I know I– I said I have no expectations, and I don’T. I don’t, as long as I just get a little sliver of you and your time and– but I have to be honest with you, eric. I have to wonder if somehow we could, we could be more. If you and I could– could have a beautiful future together.

Quinn: I know there’s someone special out there for you, carter. Someone who’s going to bring the same passion and intensity to your life that– that I did. But I also know that that person’s name is not paris.

Carter: Maybe. But even if that happens, it won’t replace those moments in the loft. The two of us sharing our most intimate thoughts, emotions, feelings I can’t forget to this day.

Quinn: I can’t either. It would be so easy to get swept up in all of that again– to get swept up in you. But I can’T. I– I can’t be with you, carter.

[ Keys jangle ]

Deacon: Brooke? I saw you drive in. I– I was down at the cabin. I was waiting for hope. She’s not here. Umm, how’d it go with ridge? You weren’t gone very long.

[ Clears throat ]

Deacon: Things didn’t go well?

Brooke: I was really hoping to spend some time alone with ridge. There was a lot that I wanted to say to him.

Deacon: What happened?

Brooke: Taylor happened. She was there with ridge when I arrived. And she was there when I left.

Ridge: Well, thank you again for feeding me.

Taylor: Mm hm.

Ridge: And saving me from quinn’s cooking. I don’t know how dad does it.

[ Laughing ]

Taylor: No – it can’t be that bad.

Ridge: Oh, it’s awful. Last night, we had oatmeal and toast for dinner.

Taylor: No, you didn’T.

Ridge: Yeah.

Taylor: No.

Ridge: Mmm.

Taylor: Really?

Ridge: She’s great in the kitchen. No, she’s not. She’s awful. She’s a good jewelry designer but don’t make her cook.

[ Laughing ]

Taylor: That’s funny.

Ridge: Mmm. But you know what? I’m squatting here, so I can’t really be choosy. You know what I mean.

Taylor: I do know what you mean.

[ Flirtatious laugh ] Hey, thank you, for earlier. Telling brooke that we needed some time alone.

Ridge: I like hanging out with you. You bring me food. You know, we– we talk, we discuss things, and even when we’re just sitting there quietly. I like it. We really had our hands full with our two-year-old.

[ Waves roar ]

Eric: What are you thinking?

Donna: Ah. I was just remembering all that– the wonderful moments that we’ve shared.

[ Glasses clink ]

Eric: You are beautiful.

[ Applause ]

Eric: So many memories we have.

Donna: God, I’ve loved you for so long, eric. And I– that’s never going to change. I– I just, I have to say it. I just– I want you to be happy and I just– I see that you’re not happy and– I’m not a home wrecker, and I just– I–

[ Sighing ] I guess what I’m trying to say is… leave her, eric. Leave quinn.

Quinn: I’ll never forget eric’s ability to forgive me and give our marriage another chance. I owe eric the same loyalty he’s– he’s always shown me. I owe eric my total devotion and fidelity.

Deacon: Are you fricking kidding me? Ridge sent you away?

Brooke: Yes. But– they were talking about steffy.

Deacon: I don’t care what they were talking about. You’re forrester’s wife. I– or has he forgotten that? Ugh, I’ll tell you this much, if you were my wife, I wouldn’t forget. And I damn well wouldn’t send you away. I’d want to be with you every single moment. Just– you know, I’d want you by my side.

Ridge: You know what I like most about chinese take-out?

Taylor: Ah, no dishes to clean up?

Ridge: There is that. But also I can show off my skills with these babies.

Taylor: Mmm.

Ridge: Huh?

Taylor: Yeah. You’re very good at that. Do you remember when you taught thomas?

Ridge: Huh.

Taylor: Mm! He was so frustrated. He couldn’t figure it out.

Ridge: He still can’t figure it out. He’s useless at it.

[ Laughing ]

Taylor: You’re right!

Ridge: Wondering where the cookies are, that was always his thing.

Taylor: Oh, speaking of which, come on. Fortune cookies!

[ Plastic crinkles ]

Ridge: Alright. You go first.

Taylor: Me? Okay. Alright, it says “if– if you really want to find yourself, play hide’n’seek alone.”

[ Chuckling ] That is rich and ironic.

Ridge: Yeah. No, it’s uh… it’s none of those things. Uh– okay.

Taylor: Mm hm.

Ridge: “To have a best friend, be a best friend.”

Taylor: Awww.

Ridge: Wow, alright.

Taylor: You’re a good best friend. You understand me, like no one else.

Ridge: Well, you get me more than most people.

Taylor: I like to think that I understand how your brain works. You’re a good man, ridge. I know you don’t want to hurt me or brooke.

Ridge: I don’t want to hurt anybody. I’m trying to take my time and I– I know it’s risky because you might just pack your things and go back to the life you had before it, umm. A fulfilled, wonderful life. Well, I don’t– I don’t want that. I don’t want you to leave. My– my world is better with you in it.

Taylor: You know when I– when I came back to L.A., And, you know, we were spending time with the kids and our grandkids, it– it’s exactly what I imagined our life would be like, if we would’ve stayed married. I know you love me, ridge. And you know that I am not going anywhere. Not now. I believe in us. I– I like us. A lot.

Ridge: I’m doing what

I’m doing because I do

love you so much.

Brooke: 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.

Deacon: Brooke.

[ Sighing ]

Brooke: I didn’t hear you come in.

Deacon: I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to startle you. You just seemed like you were a million miles away.

Brooke: Hope is, uh, she’s not up here. I think she went to work.

Deacon: I didn’t come to talk to our daughter.

Brooke: Deacon–

Deacon: Uh, brooke, I know, I probably shouldn’t be here, but I– I had to see you. I mean, come on, we haven’t had a chance to talk. You’ve been ignoring my texts, my calls.

Brooke: Because we can’t be seen together, deacon. Ridge would be very upset. I can’t risk ruining a reunion with my husband.

Eric: So, you’re not ready to move back home with brooke yet?

Ridge: Dad, I just need, uh, time to figure out my future.

Eric: Uh-huh. Well, you can take all the time you need, son.

Ridge: Thank you. I just don’t want to intrude, you know?

Eric: I like having you here.

Ridge: Aah.

Eric: And don’t worry about quinn.

Ridge: I have to worry about her, it’s your wife.

Eric: This is your home, son. It always has been, it always will be.

[ Cell phone dinging ] All right. Yeah. There’s someplace I have to be.

Ridge: You just got here. What, are you going back to the club?

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: That’s a lot of pickleball.

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: Okay.

Eric: Taylor, hi.

Taylor: Hi, eric. I have food, are you hungry?

Eric: Mm, smells good, but I’m just on my way out.

Taylor: Okay. All right, we’ll save you a bite.

Eric: Good.

[ Taylor laughing ]

Taylor: Well, hello, handsome.

Ridge: This is a nice surprise.

Taylor: Yeah? I think you know why I’m here.

Quinn: Ah! I love that piece, you know? It’s– it’s simplicity, and it’s very delicate. It looks really fabulous on you, petra.

Petra: Thank you. And I love that it’s adjustable.

Quinn: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I wanted it to be versatile, you know, so you can wear it with different necklines.

Carter: Bravo.

[ Both chuckling ] It’s another quinn fuller masterpiece.

Deacon: You did get my texts? I mean, you haven’t blocked me or anything, right?

Brooke: No, of course I didn’t block you. I just…

[ Sighing ] It didn’t feel right to respond.

Deacon: I just wanted to check and see how you’re doing. Brooke, we’ve been through so much together.

Brooke: Well, I’m not doing this to hurt you, deacon. It’s just, we both know how ridge feels.

Deacon: I know, I know.

Brooke: Especially now.

Deacon: I– I get it. I do, but we’ve gotta talk about this. Hope told me why you drank that night. You didn’t do this because you just fell of the wagon for no reason. You got pushed off by sheila.

Ridge: You’ve come to take care of me and, uh, make sure I’m eating.

Taylor: Yes, well, that’s– that’s part of it.

Ridge: Chinese. That’s good.

Taylor: Yeah, just– just remind me again that steffy leaving town was the right decision.

Ridge: Absolutely.

Taylor: Okay. Okay, good. I know it is, right? It’s the right decision. I just, I– i already miss them so much.

Ridge: Hey. I miss them too. But thomas is here, I’m here. We’re not chopped liver, so we’re gonna be all right.

Taylor: Of course you’re not. I’m very grateful for both of you.

Ridge: And I’m grateful for you.

[ Taylor chuckling ] Love your smile. Can we please eat?

[ Laughing ]

Taylor: I know you’re hungry. Yes.

Quinn: These are going to be launched next month. They’re meant to be stacked. Or not.

[ Laughing ] They’re made out of recycled gold and silver, with repurposed stones.

Petra: Very cool.

Quinn: Yeah. Carter, what do you think?

Carter: Perfection.

Quinn: Well, I think we’re done here. Um, thank you so much and, uh, here, I’ll take these. If I need anything else, I will text you. Thanks, petra.

Petra: No problem.

Quinn: Okay. Can you close the door? Whew.

Carter: I hope I wasn’t interrupting your genius.

Quinn: Uh, no, no. We were pretty much done. Do you need the office or something?

Carter: No, no, I, uh, just, uh, I wanted to see you. You know liberty mutual customizes your car insurance,

Quinn: Kills me to see you like this, carter.

Carter: Yeah, and it kills me too, quinn. I– I can’t get you out of my mind. Are you still considering going back to paris?

Carter: I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m doing, quinn. There’s only one thing I know and it’s that I can’t stop thinking about you. No matter how hard I try, I– I can’t stop wanting you.

Deacon: Part of me feels responsible. Uh, big part of me.

Brooke: Deacon, you couldn’t have anticipated any of this.

Deacon: I mean, all those conversations I had with sheila, all those times that she just happened to show up at il giardino, I didn’t notice anything? I mean, every time, she’d show up and she– she was talking just, like, so intense, in circles, crazy, and I– I didn’t pick up any of the warning signs.

Brooke: Well, she is a crazy person. She got me drunk, she threw me off my recovery. She upended my life. She got her wish.

Deacon: I should’ve protected you, brooke. If I had been more… no, I– I don’t– I just thought you were having fun. New year’s eve, you know? It was one stupid kiss, I– I never considered what the fallout would be.

Brooke: We both weren’t thinking very clearly.

Deacon: I just hate how– I hate how sheila victimized you. That she took something so precious from you. And– and I’m not talking about ridge. I’m talking about your sobriety. About your belief in yourself. I know how hard you battled to get that. I was there. I saw it. And I just let sheila stomp all over it.

Brooke: If only she hadn’t come back in town.

Deacon: So.

[ Throat clearing ] Where are things with you and ridge? Has he forgiven you?

[ Brooke sighing ] No. Well, then, maybe ridge doesn’t deserve you.

Taylor: I’ve been texting with steffy, thank you. She and the kids got off safely.

Ridge: Good. Now, don’t worry about steffy. She’s a very capable, strong, brave young woman.

Taylor: Yes, I know, I know. I… I know that this whole trip was my suggestion, but I–

Ridge: You wish she weren’t so far away?

Taylor: Yes. Yes, I– I was thinking maybe she would pick san francisco, or big sur, but…

Ridge: That would’ve been good.

Taylor: Yeah.

Ridge: But she needed a change, so this is okay, too.

Taylor: Yeah and, you know, kelly and hayes are going to love it. All the new sights and sounds. Experiencing different cultures and… what?

Ridge: I just want sheila to suffer.

Taylor: Mm.

Ridge: I want her to suffer for the rest of her life for what she did to steffy. Finn. And those poor, innocent kids.

Taylor: I know. We can’t– we can’t do this. We can’t let sheila have this kind of power over us, or she’ll consume our thoughts forever.

Ridge: Well, she has consumed mine. I wish she hadn’t, but she has.

Taylor: Okay, let’s focus on the positive. Some positive things. Um, when steffy and the kids come home, they’re going to feel so much better. It’s going to be so good for them, and… I get to be here and hang out with my best friend.

Ridge: That is super positive.

Taylor: Super positive. And he’s so handsome.

Ridge: Right? I was just thinking that.

Taylor: I mean, seriously, were you thinking that?

Ridge: Mhm. Mhm.

Taylor: I mean, I’m always thinking that. I brought in ensure max protein,

Deacon: I don’t think I’m ever gonna forgive myself for the pain that night caused you.

Brooke: Sheila set me up. She set us both up.

Deacon: Yeah, well, I could’ve shut it down. You would have gone to bed, that would have been the end of it. I mean, let’s be honest, the real problem was that I was here in the first place.

Brooke: Ridge can’t get over the part where I kissed you.

Deacon: Well, he should. I mean, you’ve apologized, what, like a thousand times? I mean, he’s got to get over this. E– especially now that he knows the whole story.

Brooke: Yeah, well… he moved in to eric’s, you know? Now, he just said he needs some time to figure out what to do next.

Deacon: What the hell is there to figure out? You’re his wife. You got played by some maniac. He ought to be right here. By your side, sticking by you.

Brooke: I do appreciate your support. And your concern. But right now, I’ve got to go.

Deacon: You’re going to see ridge, aren’t you?

Brooke: Yes, I am. I’m going to see my husband.

Quinn: Carter, paris is already on to you. She suspects you still have feelings for me.

Carter: And she’s right, quinn, and I deny it. I keep telling her she’s wrong, but I– I–

Quinn: It’s just the way it has to be.

Carter: I love you. I miss you like crazy.

Quinn: Carter. You need to put your game face on. You know what the consequences would be if– if anything ever happened.

Carter: I don’t wanna hurt eric any more than you do.

Quinn: We can’t! It’s not even an option. My husband is the most loyal man in the world. We can never, ever betray eric ever again.

[ Cell phone dinging ]

Taylor: What?

Ridge: I’m hungry.

Taylor: Ooh, well, you’re in luck, because I brought something delicious.

Ridge: Yeah?

Taylor: Mhm.

Ridge: I saw. From the special place.

Taylor: From the very special place.

Ridge: You know how to get to man’s heart, don’t you?

Taylor: Yeah, you take the 101 to the ten and then…

Ridge: Exit main street.

Taylor: Boom.

Ridge: Boom. I’m impressed you remember.

Taylor: Even after all these years.

Ridge: Mhm. So, you drove all the way to saint gabriel for me?

Taylor: Yes. I thought you could use some love from your favorite chinese place.

Ridge: You always knew exactly what I needed.

Taylor: I like to think I do.

Ridge: Let me heat this stuff up.

Taylor: No, it’s okay. I got it. I got it.

[ Throat clearing ]

Ridge: So, what do I owe you?

Taylor: Just the tip.

[ Laughing ]

Ridge: Okay.

[ Clearing throat ]

Brooke: Taylor. What’s going on? I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo

Quinn: You and I shared some amazing times–

Carter: Yes, quinn, and I can’t stop thinking about those wonderful moments that we had.

Quinn: You have to. We both have to.

Carter: How could I forget?

You and me, uh, I think, uh,

we’re in similar situations.

We get each other.

Quinn: Yeah. We do.

Carter: I never felt the connection that we had with any woman, ever. But I, uh, I know– I know you’re, um, you’re dedicated to your marriage, quinn, and I– i respect and I admire that.

Quinn: Carter. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t moved by you. By the way you look at me. Your words. Your… your love. Your love for me is incredible and I have never felt anything like that before. But you’re right. I’m only dedicated to eric. The same way that he is… faithfully and loyally committed to me.

[ Wine pouring ]

Brooke: So, what’s going on here? You know, ridge came here, to eric’s, to be alone. To take some time for himself. So, can you respect that? Can you just leave him alone for a second?

[ Taylor chuckling ]

Taylor: This is– this is ironic, because– because you’re here, too. I– I’m here because, um, steffy just left town with the kids.

Ridge: Yeah, we encouraged her to go. Just get out of the house, get some new experiences for her and the kids.

Brooke: Yeah. And I guess it’s probably hard being around that house with finn’s belongings and all of the memories.

Taylor: Yes. It’s so hard for steffy. She’s going to carry that pain with her wherever she goes, but the goal is for her to get away and start to heal the trauma.

Ridge: It’ll be good for her.

Taylor: Yeah. It’s so hard for her, and she’s trying to be so strong for kelly and hayes, but… I’m sure you can understand how hard this is on our daughter and our grandkids, right?

Brooke: Of course, taylor. I care about steffy. My heart goes out to her. Nobody should ever have to go through what she had to face.

Taylor: Thank you, brooke.

Brooke: So, chinese food?

Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, I picked up, uh, ridge’s favorite chinese. Yeah.

Brooke: Mm. You’re having dinner together.

Taylor: We are.

Brooke: How long are you planning on staying, taylor?

Taylor: Brooke, I– our daughter’s husband just died in a tragic shooting, and she just took her kids overseas so that they can begin to heal from the trauma. And, you know, ridge and I need a little time to process this, too. Right, ridge? Come on. Do you want to tell brooke? Do you want to tell her that we need some time?

[ Steffy sighing ]

Taylor: Hey, sweetheart. Are you ok? Are you having second thoughts about leaving?

Steffy: No, I– I really need to get away. Time to heal, reconnect with the kids after what happened. I mean, I see finn everywhere. There are times I forget he’s gone and then it just, like, hits me and it feels like I’m losing him all over again.

Taylor: You know a new perspective is going to do you really good.

Steffy: I just don’t wanna feel like I’m forgetting finn, leaving him behind.

Taylor: I see how it can feel that way. But finn is going to be with you always. Always. You getting away is– is about creating space and giving yourself and the kids permission to heal. Oh, baby.

Ridge: Hey. It’s going to be alright.

Steffy: Yeah. I hope so, dad. I really do.

[ Machines beeping ]

Li: You must be so scared. So confused. But it’s okay, because I’m right here. I’m right here, my sweet boy. I’ll never give up on you. And I know you’re not giving up either, because I saw it. Your eyes twitched, the other day. Your consciousness spiked. It’s a sign. It’s a sign that you’re not giving up. That you’re still fighting.

Hope: Finn’s death is such a tragedy. Has– has kelly asked any more questions about him?

[ Liam sighing ]

Liam: Not really. I– I know she’s sad, it’s just hard to tell what she understands and– and what she doesn’T. Like, she knows he gone. I just don’t know what that means to her. And I want to be there to help her cope. That also means being there to support steffy and it’s a whole…

Hope: Look, I mean, that, all of that is important to me too.

Liam: Thank you for being so understanding. I know all this time I’m spending over at steffy’s, it’s gotta be–

Hope: Liam, we’re family. Steffy and the kids need our support. And that is what matters.

Liam: How did I do that? How did I so lucky as to have you for my wife?

[ Loud, smacking kisses ]

[ Hope giggling ]

Hope: So is there any word yet on if there’s going to be a memorial?

Liam: Uh, not– not really. Steffy keeps trying to talk to li, but she’s being super standoffish.

[ Phone ringing ] Hold on.

Hope: Okay.

Liam: Speaking of steffy. Hey.

Steffy: Hey, can you come over?

Liam: Uh, what, why, what is it? Is it kelly?

Steffy: The kids are fine, but it’s important.

Liam: Yeah, uh, yeah, okay. I– I’ll be over right away.

Hope: Is everything alright?

Liam: I, uh, apparently I need to go over to steffy’S. Something’s up. I don’t know–

Hope: Is it the kids, or?

Liam: That’s what, that’s what I said. She says they’re fine. But now I wanna find out what’s going on so–

Hope: Yes, go, go.

Liam: Okay, alright. I’ll update you.

Hope: Alright.

Steffy: Liam’s on his way.

Taylor: You seem concerned.

Steffy: I just hope he understands why I need to leave.

Taylor: I’m sure he will.

Ridge: He’s always gonna do what’s best for you.

Steffy: I don’t know if he’s going to be happy about me taking kelly.

Taylor: I think he’ll understand that you’re doing whatever you need to do to heal.

Ridge: And if that means taking the kids away for a while, he’ll support that.

[ Knocking ]

Hope: It’s open.

Thomas: Hey!

Hope: Hey!

Thomas: Um, so douglas happened to leave this, uh, his book and his binder, all his notes and everything so, uh…

Hope: Thank you.

Thomas: Figured he might need that, yeah.

Hope: Yes.

Thomas: So what was liam rushing out of here for?

Hope: Oh, uh, your sister called and said it was important, so liam just–

[ Tongue clap ]

Thomas: Why am I not surprised? For copd,

Taylor: Is everything okay?

Steffy: Yeah, I was just checking on the flight. Everything’s on time.

Ridge: Alright, I just had an idea. How about this? How about we give you a ride to the airport? You don’t need a car. And if you wanna go say something to liam first, we’ll do that.

Steffy: Dad, I’m fine. You don’t need to do that. It’s good.

Taylor: Okay, okay, and– and, you will text us whenever you land.

Steffy: Yeah, of course, we’ll video chat.

Ridge: And you have, you have everything you need?

Steffy: Yeah, yeah, I do.

Taylor: Everything? I mean, it’s– it’s overseas, it’s a really long flight, the kids, the–

Steffy: I have everything. Tablets, books, toys for the kids. Amelia. We’re good.

Ridge: Oh, headphones!

Taylor: Right!

Steffy: We’re good, dad. We’re good.

Ridge: Okay.

Taylor: We know you are. This– this is so hard to see you go, but we are so proud of you. I know that this is the right thing to do, but– I am going to miss you and my grandkids so much.

Steffy: Mom, don’t do this. Please don’t make me cry again.

Taylor: I can’t help it!

[ Both chuckling ]

[ Ridge sighing ]

Steffy: Dad, what? Please don’t do this.

Ridge: Nothing. I just, I– I hate this. I hate that you’re going through this. But you are going through it and you’re gonna – come out the other side better because you are stronger than any of us.

Steffy: I’m trying.

Ridge: You are. And you’ll find a way to guide hayes and kelly through this. Come here. Mmm. I love you.

Steffy: Thank you, dad. Both of you, for everything.

Taylor: Oh, I don’t want to say goodbye.

Steffy: Let’s not then. We don’t have to say goodbye.

Taylor: I love you so much.

Steffy: I love you too, mom.

Thomas: Yeah, look, I– I do, I do really care about you, hope. And I appreciate liam supporting steffy. But…

Hope: Mmm! Na-uh! No! No buts. Thomas, no. Liam is there for her as a supportive friend and father the way we are all trying to be there for her, to help her through this.

Thomas: I’m grateful. I am. And I, ah, yeah, I– I have never seen steffy in this much pain.

Hope: Well, no, her entire world was shattered.

Thomas: Yeah, which is, um, well, that’s actually why she asked liam to come over.

Hope: Why? Wait– do you know something I don’t know?

Thomas: The reason that steffy asked liam to come over was to say goodbye. Steffy’s leaving.

Finn: Steffy forrester,

will you marry me?

Will you be my wife?

Steffy: Yes,

I’ll be your wife!

[ Seagulls cawing ]

I can’t believe it.

We’re getting married.

Finn: And we’re having

a baby, our baby.

I’m going to be right

by your side as we grow

into our future.

Stronger together.

Connected by love.

Year after year.

I love you.

Liam: Hey. I came as soon as I– what’s going on? You leaving?

Steffy: Yes. And I’m taking kelly and hayes with me. Whatever gives you life

Taylor: Is eric home?

Ridge: No. He’s back at the club. He likes playing pickleball.

Taylor: Thank you. Wow! Pickleball.

Ridge: Mm-hm.

Taylor: Wow. Well, that’s good that he’s getting his heart rate up.

Ridge: Yep. Working up a sweat.

Taylor: Good.

Ridge: Can’t get enough.

Taylor: Good. I’m glad he’s found a way to deal with all this madness. How about you? How are you doing?

Ridge: Well, I, uh, talking to a shrink.

Taylor: Wow.

Ridge: She’s, yeah, she’s good. She’s, uh, she’s cute.

Taylor: Yeah?

Ridge: Mmm.

Taylor: She sounds amazing.

Ridge: Oh well, she’s, yeah.

Taylor: You always make me smile.

Ridge: It’s all we can do, isn’t it? Smile through it, or play pickleball.

Taylor: Or fly halfway across the world.

Ridge: Steffy’s going to be alright.

Taylor: I know she will. I just hope that liam is understanding, even though he’s going to be completely shocked that she’s leaving with the kids.

Hope: I’m sorry, I’m still trying to wrap my head around this. So steffy is leaving and she’s taking kelly and hayes with her?

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: And your mom suggested this?

Thomas: Well, look, steffy was resistant at first too. But then, she really thought about it and figured it might be the best idea for her and the kids.

Hope: Bu– but how? I mean, her family is here. Her support system is here.

Thomas: I know. But so is a house that is full of memories of finn. She needs to be able to get away. To go to a new place. To refresh, and sorta start over. To move on, and– and to be with the kids. Hayes and with kelly. And kelly, gosh, she must have so many questions.

Hope: Just, I can’t– I can’t believe it. I– I– I just, I hope that steffy finds the peace that she’s looking for.

Thomas: Yeah. And hopefully, she will. You know, she can, she can finally move on from all of this and create a new life for herself. A life, without finn.

[ Machines beeping ]

Li: You need to keep fighting. Dig deep and come back to us. You have a little boy that’s waiting for his daddy.

Steffy: Finn’s gone. At first, I thought being in my home would be– it would be healing. Like, miraculously, somehow, finn would come back to me and the kids, but– he’s not coming back.

Liam: I wish I knew what to say.

Steffy: Say that you understand. I– I can’t be here. I need to leave and I need to take the kids. And I understand that kelly is your daughter but just tell me, tell me you understand. Hi, I’m karen. what’s best for the ki

Ridge: Steffy’s taking kelly and hayes because it’s what’s best for the kids. Liam’s gonna understand that.

Taylor: Yeah, I think he will. He’s been amazing with steffy through all of this. It’s clear that he still loves our daughter. Ugh. I don’t know what to– you know, ridge, when I– when I came back to L.A., Steffy was the happiest that I have ever seen her. She was so fulfilled. The bond between her and finn was so strong.

Ridge: That’s all we can ever ask for for our kids, right? To be happy and fulfilled.

Taylor: My– my heart hurts for our daughter and our grandchildren, what they’re going through.

[ Taylor sighing ]

Hope: So, how are your parents dealing with all of this?

Thomas: You know, they– they’re just trying to stay strong for steffy and the kids. Like we all are.

Hope: Well, I mean, as a mother and a wife, I couldn’t imagine losing liam. And to deal with such a devastating loss while trying to take care of the kids too, it–

Thomas: It’s really hard. I mean when caroline died, I had no idea what to do. I– I, ugh, I had a– this beautiful little boy who was looking to me for answers, and I couldn’t give him any and he needed a mother in his life that he didn’t have. And– and I was lost, but, I mean, you– you came in, and you– you fulfilled that role for him. And I will– I’ll forever be grateful to you for that.

Hope: Well, I love him.

Thomas: Yeah, and, uh, he loves you too. We both do.

Steffy: You do understand why I have to leave, right?

Liam: I do. And I trust you. And if leaving is what’s best for now, then, uh, I support it.

Steffy: Part of me wants to stay. I feel like I’m abandoning finn.

Liam: You’re not, you’re not abandoning finn. You’re doing what’s right for you and the kids, and that’s exactly what finn would want you to do.

Steffy: That’s who he was, he was a wonderful husband, and father, and he loved kelly.

Liam: We got off to a rocky start, but it– it’s the way he was with kelly, the way he was with my daughter that– that made me realize what a special person he was.

Steffy: Everywhere I look in this home, it– it’s just memories of finn. I can’t take it anymore. It’s too much.

Liam: Well, if you gotta go, you gotta go. And that’s okay. Listen, you’ve been a phenomenal mother. You’ve done an amazing job at protecting and comforting the kids. And I can’t even begin to imagine the depth of your pain. I wish, I wish I could just take it away from you but I know that I can’t, so– so there it is.

[ Sighing ]

Steffy: I feel like my whole life has just been snatched away from me. And it’s little things, you know, like, the mundane things that really hit me like when I have breakfast and I’m just staring at an empty space across from me where finn used to be. Or, here in this home, we used to dance too, with the kids.

[ Sobbing ] It’s just hard to know that he’s not coming back. My– my husband’s gone. He’s not coming back.

[ Machines beeping ]

Liam: I’m going to miss you and kelly. So much. Just know something, okay? It doesn’t matter how many miles apart we are, I’m there with you. Always.

[Machines beeping, hissing]

Li: My beautiful boy. I still can’t believe what that woman did to you. Your own birth mother, shot you and left you for dead. You never should have been in that alley. Never been put in that kind of risk. But I won’t let that be your end. You’re still alive. And I’m the only person who knows.

Taylor: Hey, sweetie? Are the kids in the back with amelia?

Steffy: Thomas took them so kelly and hayes could spend some time with douglas.

Ridge: At least that’s somewhat normal, right?

Steffy: [Sighs] It’s just tough not having finn here. You know, we used to be a team, we used to figure out everything together and now it just… it’s just me.

Ridge: Well, that’s just not true.

Taylor: Oh, I know it feels like you’re all alone but you’re not, sweetie. You have people that love and support you.

Ridge: Yeah, we’re all here to help you with whatever you need.

Taylor: You know, I think the best way that we can support you is by encouraging you to take the time that you need and just get away with the kids.

Steffy: By leaving town. Sorry, that doesn’t feel right to me.

Donna: The times that… we’ve been spending here together, they’re… the happiest since… I mean, since we were married, really. If it were up to me, I would just keep doing this forever and ever and ever. But…you have a lot more at stake here, eric. You’re married, whether I approve of your wife or not.

[Sighs] So, I just–I need you… to be honest with me, okay? Like you always are. Do you want to stop seeing each other?

Quinn: Am I really hearing this? Are you saying you want to start things back up with paris?

Carter: It’s not the worst thing that can happen.

Quinn: Stop it! Carter, no! You can’t do this!

Quinn: You’re talking about a decision that can impact the rest of your life. You can’t do that on an impulse, because I’m telling you, if you open that door to paris, she is not gonna walk back out.

Carter: There are worse things than being tied to paris, quinn, okay? She loves me.

Quinn: I-I’d agree if you loved her back. But I have never heard you say that. Don’t be rash! That’s all I’m saying.

Carter: And all I’m saying is that I– all I’m saying is that I won’t let paris’s questions about my feelings for you undermine your marriage to eric.

Eric: I don’t want to stop seeing you.

Donna: Really?

Eric: Really.

Donna: I mean… I mean, that–that’s what i was hoping you would say, but I just–I just–

Eric: You’re so– you’re so beautiful.

Donna: So are you.

[Both laugh]

Eric: This is so precious to me, these moments with you, it’s so precious to me. It means so much. What is this, you’re gonna– now you’re starting to cry?

Donna: It’s because… it’s because I’m so happy.



Eric: [Murmurs]


Taylor: You and the kids are trying to navigate this terrible tragedy, losing finn. Your life suddenly changed and it’s okay to take some time to try to figure out how to gently move forward instead of thinking you have to barrel through this.

Steffy: But I can do that here.

Taylor: I think you could… give yourself permission to just take a break and–and get away and–and gently process your loss.

Ridge: You know, your mom is right. We don’t want you to leave but maybe that is exactly what you need right now.

Trelegy for copd.

Donna: I am so lucky to have you in my life still after all of this time.

Eric: Yeah. I never… lost my connection to you. You make me smile from the inside out. You make me… feel so warm, and–and… so loved.

Donna: There you go again, making me happy. You’d better be careful, mister, because I could get used to this.

Eric: It’s the least you deserve.

Quinn: I would never ask you to compromise your life, any part of it, on my behalf.

Carter: I know.

Quinn: Making a commitment to a woman you don’t love to keep her nose out of my business is a huge compromise.

Carter: We did say “I love you” to each other.

Quinn: Yeah, but did you mean it or were you just in the moment?

Carter: I won’t let paris undermine your marriage because she’s jealous and to be honest, quinn, being with her was no hardship. There were times I couldn’t wait to see her. Like, I can– I can get back there again.

Quinn: You shouldn’t have to work on it. You’re a huge romantic, carter. You were ready to walk away from everything that meant anything to you to run away with me.

Carter: And you said no. Maybe that’s why I didn’t give this relationship with paris a fair shot, why I didn’t fight for it. I wasn’t all in.

Quinn: Or maybe you just weren’t feeling it.

Carter: No, no, I was holding back, you know. And then there was zende to consider. I didn’t want to do to him what we did to eric. Even though paris and I, we’re not…[Chuckles] We’re not you and me.

Quinn: That should tell you something.

Carter: It does tell me something. It tells me that I’d be alone forever waiting for something like what we had to hit me again. I don’t want to be a bachelor, quinn. I don’t want to be a bachelor anymore. So I can– I can reconnect with paris. It wouldn’t be difficult. It wouldn’t be difficult to make more of it.

Quinn: But is that really what you want? Do you care enough about paris to go back to her? Or would you be doing that for me?

Steffy: Good thing I’ve got thick skin.

Ridge: What do you mean?

Steffy: It sounds like you want to get rid of me.

Ridge: Are you kidding me right now?

Taylor: No, honey, your father and I are just suggesting that you take the kids and you get out of la for a minute. Just go someplace beautiful, someplace quiet. Someplace where you can really be with kelly and hayes.

Steffy: You really think it’s a good idea to take the kids away from what’s familiar?

Taylor: I think right now kelly and hayes would really appreciate some one-on-one time with mommy, you know? Just…just being with them. Answering their questions, taking all the time you need. You could do it, honey. You could…get out of this environment and… reconnect as a family.

Steffy: Yeah, I used to have that. I don’t have that anymore. Kelly, hayes, finn, we were a family, but that doesn’t exist. It was destroyed when sheila took finn away from us. I’m susan and I’m 52

Donna: This is just heaven. Being alone with you.

Eric: I love that about you.

Donna: Hmm?

Eric: How you value the simple things.

Donna: Yeah, I don’t really need a lot. Just my honey bear. When I’m with you like this, it’s just… nothing else matters.

Eric: Look, I hate to break the spell…

Donna: No… no, no, no, no, no, no. Don’t–don’t say it, don’t say it.

Eric: I have to go.

Donna: Is it wrong of me to say that I wish you didn’t have to go? I mean…

[Sighs] I live for these moments. Don’t worry, I–I’M… I don’t have any expectations, eric, I… I’m not gonna make any demands, okay? Or pressure you at all.

[Sighs] I just… I just want to be with you. I just want to make you happy, that’s it.

Eric: You do. Without even trying.

Carter: I know how important eric is to you. He’s the center of your life as you are to his and I jeopardized your marriage in the past. I won’t do that again.

Quinn: But you’re not doing anything. I’m not doing anything! We would never hurt eric like that again.

Carter: I still feel guilty. Eric trusted me. He made a place for me in his family, and what do I do? I have an affair with his wife. I practically begged you to run away with me.

Quinn: But I didn’T. And eric has forgiven both of us!

Carter: And I want it to stay that way. Paris is asking questions about my feelings for you because she can tell that I still care. How much I’ll always care about you.

Ridge: Finn is gone. And the pain of that has got to be excruciating.

Steffy: Yeah, sometimes I think I see finn out of the corner of my eye and… for a wonderful second I… I forget. And then I turn to where he should be and he’S… he’s not there. I’ll never see my husband again.

Taylor: I–I cannot imagine how you must be feeling, steffy. But you’re right, finn should be here. He should be here, living his best life with you and the kids and I… I hate that he’s not. But you–you will find the strength to cope with this sweetheart. You will.

Ridge: But–but maybe not here, you know, surrounded by all these memories. This may not be the best place.

Taylor: I think taking the kids and–and–and getting away might be better than–than forcing yourself to stay here because you think that you have to stay stuck in this sadness.

Steffy: If I leave our home, I feel like I’m abandoning finn. Maybe it would’ve been easier if I felt like I had some closure but I didn’t get that. I didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye. And when I reached out to leave, it was too late. He’s gone. My husband is gone forever.

[Machine beeping]

[Keys clacking] If you have copd,

Quinn: I’m always gonna care about you, too. I’m just–I can’t have you make any life-changing decisions because of me.

Carter: I already came between you and eric once. And I don’t regret a single minute we spent together, quinn, but I am deeply sorry we hurt him. I won’t do that again. I’m picking up with paris, she’ll stop asking questions, and you and eric, you get to be happy without any outside interference.

Quinn: What about you?

Carter: This isn’t about me.

Quinn: Of course this is about you, you being trapped in a relationship with a woman you don’t love. Come on, no, I will not let you put that justification on me.

Carter: There’s different ways you can love! Who’s to say my feeling for paris aren’t viable?

Quinn: Come on, carter. Seriously?

Carter: [Growls] You want the truth? Fine. Here’s the truth. I am tired of sitting on the sidelines watching everyone move on with their life, including you. How many weddings have i presided over? I mean, how many people have I–have I– have I walked into their future while I sit at home alone? I don’t want that. I want to be a husband in the worst way. I want a family.

Quinn: And you will have that. You will be such a great husband, the best anyone could ask for.

Carter: Yeah. To paris.

Quinn: I’m not going to let you sacrifice your future because of me. Unless you can look me in the eye and you can tell me that you love paris with all the passion you have inside of you. I’ll accept that. And I’ll wish you well. So you tell me. Is paris really the woman you love?

Carter: We both know the answer to that.

Steffy: I can’t believe I’m using words like… “closure” and “goodbye” about finn. We were supposed to grow old together. Raise our children, I don’t know. Travel the world. Finn’s not supposed to be gone.

Ridge: No, he’s not.

Steffy: I will hate sheila for the rest of my life. Hayes will grow up without a father. My husband is dead.

Ridge: Well, she’s behind bars, not gonna hurt anyone ever again.

Steffy: Oh. I want her to suffer every single day in prison. Finn was our anchor. He was the center of our world. We were supposed to have a happy life and instead I just… I watched him die.

Ridge: And I wish I could take that image away from you.

Steffy: I wish I could’ve stopped it somehow.

Taylor: Oh, honey, it’s natural to–to wish we could go back and change things but please don’t do that to yourself.

Ridge: There’s nothing you could have done, nothing.

Taylor: Please don’t–don’t beat yourself up. Finn wouldn’t want you to do that. He… he would want you to do whatever you can to find peace. Please…please consider what your father and I are suggesting. Just give yourself permission to take the kids and get away.

Ridge: Whatever it is you need, you’re not gonna find it here, not for a long time, anyway.

Steffy: [Sighs] Maybe you’re right. Maybe it is what we need. Finn is everywhere in this home. He’s upstairs, he’S… he’s in the nursery, he’S… he’s at the beach, about to come home from a surf. Like, I feel like if I… if I say his name he’ll hear me, he’ll–he’d answer.

[Sniffles] Oh, finn.

[Sighs] Oh, finn.

Steffy: Finn.

Thomas: I should have told you, steff. I’m so sorry.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: Why would you ever keep her secret? You knew sheila couldn’t be trusted.

Ridge: But we should’ve been able to trust you.

Thomas: Yeah, you should’ve. You should have. And I have no idea why I didn’t tell you. I just… if I had told you, then maybe you and finn wouldn’t have ended up in that alley.

Steffy: No, no, no, I’m not– I’m not– I’m not going to put that on you. When I think about that night, everything that led up to it, like, yeah, it’s– it’s hard. You know, I come here and I try to get away from it, but obviously I, uh, I can’T. Finn’s gone. My husband is never coming back.

[ Machines beeping ]

Quinn: I love my husband.

We’re happily married.

And what happened between

me and carter is in

the past and that’s where

it’s going to stay.

Do you get it?

[ Clearing throat ]

Quinn: Hey, carter.

Carter: Hey, um, you have a minute? I, uh, I need to talk to you about eric.

[ Sighs luxuriously ]

Eric: Donna? Did I hear you sigh, just now?

Donna: Did I?

[ Laughing ]

Eric: Yeah, you did. That must mean you’re very relaxed.

Donna: Yeah… huh. I hope you are too.

Eric: I haven’t felt this wonderful in a very, very long time. The fact is, I shouldn’t be here.

Donna: With me, you mean?

Eric: What’s crazy is that there’s no place else on this earth I’d rather be.

Donna: Eric, you shouldn’t feel guilty for being happy.

Eric: Oh, I don’t, I– but it’s just not quite as simple as that.

Donna: What’s the point of coming to this fancy health club if you don’t leave feeling better than when you arrived?

Eric: Yeah, but quinn thinks I’m playing pickleball.

Donna: Yeah, well, that’s pretty good for you too.

Eric: It’s not as good for me as spending time with you. When I’m with you, all my troubles just, they just disappear. The fact is though, I’m deceiving my wife.

Quinn: You want to talk to me about eric?

Carter: Yeah, yeah, I know how important he is to you and I know how dedicated and committed you are to your marriage and I just– I– I won’t let anyone interfere with that.

Quinn: Well, that’s a lovely sentiment, carter. But, eric and I are fine. Hey, what’s going on?

Carter: I was just thinking about what happened earlier.

Quinn: You mean when paris put us on notice? Hah, yeah, that girl’s a peach.

Carter: Yeah. And I don’t want it to be an issue, quinn. And I’m– I’m worried it could be.

Steffy: Let me see the other design.

Thomas: Steff, I wanna apologize.

Steffy: No, I– I want to work. Can we please just work? Where are we on the next collection? Like, I– I don’t want it to affect us, the company. And I don’t want to fall behind. We’ve just gotta… you know what we need to do is – what we need, uh– no, dad! I got this, I have this, you don’t have to worry about me.

Ridge: No, hey, what you need to do is take care of yourself and take care of your family. That’s it.

Steffy: Oh my god.

[ Sniffles ] I am trying to stay strong. I am trying to keep going for the kids. But I– I can’t do this. I can’t do any of this without finn. Super emma just about sleeps in her cape.

Donna: You still love quinn.

Eric: I guess a part of me always will. And I thought that would be enough. I really did. I thought– that would be enough for us to, uh, remember everything, the memories that we shared. The moments that we shared.

Donna: You forgave her and you– you took her back.

Eric: Yeah, yeah, I did. I wanted us to rebuild our trust. I wanted us to try to find that part of each other again.

Donna: Oh, eric, we– we don’t– we don’t have to get into all of this.

Eric: I understand if you don’t want to talk about it.

Donna: No, it’s– you don’t have to tell me how you feel, eric, because I can see it. It’s clear as day. And I just wish I could do something about it to help you.

Eric: You do. Every day. It’s so wonderful that I can be so honest with you but I– I don’t think I’m ready to be honest with myself. The affair that– that quinn had with carter, I think it– it ruptured our marriage in a way that I think is irreparable. That’s why I keep coming back to you, over and over again.

Carter: You heard her, quinn. Paris is questioning my feelings for you.

Quinn: It’s ridiculous, carter. Nothing is going on between us. Ah, come on. I’m devoted to eric. I’m– I’m repairing the damage that I’ve done.

Carter: And I support you in that 100%. You and eric, you love each other enough to try again after everything that’s happened.

Quinn: Trying is the operative word. I would be happier if we were succeeding.

Carter: And I want to help you in that. I won’t let paris jeopardize your happiness.

Steffy: Finn and I planned to do this all together. Our kids, our family, that was our future and now he’s– now he’s gone.

Thomas: Steff, you– you’re not alone. Okay? We’re right here. You just have to let us in.

Ridge: He’s right. We’re right here.

Steffy: Yeah, you are. But that doesn’t replace what’s been taken from me, from my children. I have to be everything now.

Ridge: You don’t have to be everything. You just need to be a mom.

Steffy: Finn and i were a team. We made each other better. We made each other stronger.

Ridge: You don’t have to be the rock. Everyone knows you’re grieving.

Steffy: And that’s why– I hate that. I hate that everyone knows. Like they pity me or something. Like, I wanted to come in here and just feel… normal. Not walking around with an empty hole in my chest.

Ridge: You don’t have to do everything, be everything.

Steffy: Dad… uh.

Ridge: We got you, your family’s got you.

Taylor: Hi.

Steffy: Mom?

Taylor: Your father texted me.

Steffy: This is what I mean. Everyone is treating me like I’m broken.

Taylor: Honey, no, you’re not, you’re not broken.

Thomas: Uh, she wants to do this on her own. And– she doesn’t want anybody feeling sorry for her.

Taylor: I understand. I do. Steffy, we all do. But you have suffered a terrible loss.

Steffy: My husband is dead. He was murdered. I never get to see my husband again. I never get to hear his voice. He’s gone.

[ Steffy groaning ]

Li: You will be yourself again, finn. This isn’t how your story ends. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

[ Waves roaring ]

Donna: Oh, no, no, no. No frowning. No frowning. That is not allowed here in this little oasis.

Eric: This little oasis?

Donna: Yes.

Eric: Well, it’s not the place that I love being in. It’s– it’s being here, with you. That’s what I love.

Donna: That’s what I love too. I mean, no– nobody has ever made me laugh the way that you make me laugh.

Eric: Yeah, well, you bring that out in me.

[ Donna laughing ]

Donna: I missed that so much after I left forrester. I mean, really, even before that. I mean, you were going through so much. You still are.

Eric: But it’s not so overwhelming– when I’m here with you. I mean, look at you, you’re this wonderful, beautiful, vivacious woman. Full of life and– are you sure you want to be doing this? That you want to be doing this with me?

Donna: Nothing about this feels wrong, eric. Or– or sneaky or tricky. I’m– I’m making beautiful new memories with the most fascinating man I’ve ever known. I love you so much, eric. And that’s never going to change.

Quinn: Paris is just asking questions.

Carter: Questions that can cause problems in your marriage.

Quinn: How? We aren’t doing anything wrong!

Carter: It’s about her perception.

Quinn: Oh, come on, she’s seeing things that aren’t even there. She’s young. She’s– she’s inexperienced. She has no idea how complicated relationships can be.

Carter: Exactly. She knows what happened between us and she got it in her head it could happen again, quinn. Aww, we didn’t have these issues when paris and I were together. You were with eric, you were working things out. And paris and I, we were getting to know each other and then maybe, just, uh. I could’ve handled things better, right? I could’ve– I could’ve, and she did ask me to try again.

Quinn: What? Wha– to get back together?

Carter: We do have a lot in common.

Quinn: Wha– wait, is this, is this because of what, of what zende said when he said he would step aside if that’s what she wants? Because I thought you said that this isn’t going to work.

Carter: Yeah, maybe that attitude is why she got the wrong idea about us.

Quinn: I thought you said that paris was just a rebound.

Carter: In the beginning, she was. Yeah, I was trying to get over my feelings for you.

Quinn: B– but, ah, but you got past that now, right? I mean, what are you saying, carter? Are you saying that you, that you changed your mind? That, that you want to be in a, in a, relationship with paris?

Taylor: Honey, you think you have to just push through and– and come to work like you always have.

Steffy: What’s wrong with that?

Taylor: Nothing, it’s all part of the grieving process but you don’t have to–

Steffy: Mom, please don’t be all shrink on me right now.

Thomas: Steff, listen to her. She helped me.

Taylor: You know it’s okay, not to be okay right now. It’s all part of the healing process.

Steffy: I’m never going to heal from this.

Ridge: Yes, you will.

Steffy: How?

Taylor: By doing exactly what you’re doing. You’re talking to us. You’re asking questions. They’re hard questions, but they’re good ones.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: I’m sorry.

Ridge: Don’t apologize.

Steffy: I’m just so heartbroken, and I’m– I’m worried about the kids. I mean, they’re– they’re okay right now. When we told kelly, she was, like, sad and– and confused, but she’s been there for her brother. And, like, even he doesn’t really understand but he senses that finn’s– finn’s gone. He’s not around.

Taylor: You know, um, hear me out for a second. I— do– do you think maybe a– a different perspective might be good? This is gonna sound weird but what if you took the kids and– and got out of town for a little bit? Life… doesn’t stop for diabetes.

Donna: I love you so much. I– I don’t want to add any more conflict and stress to your life.

Eric: What do you mean? What are you talking about?

Donna: I love to be with you. And I’ll be with you, any way that i can. But, eric, you have to tell me the truth. Do you want this to end? Tell me.

Quinn: Are you saying that you want to go back to paris?

Carter: She wants to be with me, quinn.

Quinn: But do you wanna be with her?

Carter: I should, shouldn’t I? She’s passionate, she’s exciting, she’s available.

Quinn: No, no, no, wait. But you– you’re going to be with someone because that’s what she wants?

Carter: I want that too! I want a relationship, quinn. I want to make something with someone. I mean, look at finn and steffy, their time was cut short, but they were happy. They built something that mattered. I want that too! I keep telling myself to be patient, but what am I waiting for? If I want something real, if I want a real connection, if I want real love, if I want a family, I can have that with paris. Can’t I?

Quinn: I– I don’t know. I don’t even know where this is coming from, carter.

Carter: I’m tired of being stuck. And I need to move on, and I can do that with paris. And that commitment, it will send her a message.

Quinn: What message?

Carter: To stop asking questions about my feelings for you.

Steffy: You want me to take the kids and leave?

Ridge: We just got through telling her how we’d always be there for her.

Thomas: Yeah, and we’re always going to be there for you.

Taylor: Yes, we are.

Steffy: I’m not going anywhere.

Taylor: Okay. But– but what if– what if amelia went with you? And she helped take care of the kids, and then you could–

Steffy: Wait, you just told me to not hide from my emotions, and now you’re telling me to run away?

Taylor: Nah-ah. I don’t look at it like you’re running away. I look at it like you’re moving towards something. Healing. Finding time and space and room to breathe. Sweetheart, so much has happened. And you were shot too. And you haven’t even begun to process that.

Thomas: Right, but shouldn’t she process it with her family around? With a support system?

Taylor: Yes. But– but in this case, I feel like getting away just for a little bit with the kids, you won’t be– you won’t be barraged with visual triggers and painful memories.

Ridge: You know what, that– yeah, that could help.

Steffy: But I don’t want to get away from my memories. They’re part of me. Every time I held finn’s hand or he rubbed my shoulders. I mean– I look in the mirror and I– I remember finn standing behind me. No, no, I can’t– I can’t leave. Li had him cremated. I never even had a chance to say goodbye to him.

[ Machines beeping ]

Li: You can do this. I’m not giving up on you. You will come back to us one day.

Steffy: If only I could see finn one more time. Ughh!

Liam: Hey. I’m really not just saying that. You’re not going to go through this alone, no matter what. And I’m gonna be here for you.

Steffy: Thank you. I’m not sure. I’m not sure what I need, but– just having you here is enough, you know? Helping me navigate this grief. Gosh. Doesn’t feel real. I can’t believe this is happening. How am I supposed to move on? Raise a family, without finn?

Li: I’m not letting you go, son. Not when there’s still a chance. And there is. There is.

Ridge: I was– I was so proud of thomas. He was– he was– he was just getting so much better.

Taylor: I know, but, ridge, you can still be proud of him. He has come so far.

Ridge: Has he? He lied to us again.

Taylor: I know. And I’m not condoning him for covering up what happened to brooke, but he– he let his emotions get involved, and sheila manipulated him.

Ridge: Sheila, right, so, he– he didn’t think that this would maybe affect somebody?

Taylor: We saw him struggling and we didn’t know why. He said he wanted to tell us. And then the shootings happened.

Ridge: That’s what he said, yeah.

Taylor: I believe him.

Ridge: Ah. Okay.

Taylor: Okay, we can disagree on that, but maybe we can agree on this. This doesn’t have to be public knowledge.

Ridge: Okay.

Taylor: Okay?

Ridge: We’ll deal with thomas in private.

Taylor: Okay. Brooke! How long have you been standing there?

Brooke: How long have I been standing here? Oh, about one or two seconds. Look if I’m interrupting…

Ridge: Don’t be silly. Come on in.

Brooke: Uh, uh. It’s good to see you here, taylor. You know, I’ve been thinking about you, and steffy and what you had to do to get sheila to confess. It’s quite unnerving.

Taylor: It was. Very.

Brooke: I still can’t believe she did it. Shot steffy. Killed finn.

[ Kettle whistling ]

Steffy: I should be thanking you again.

Liam: What, uh, wh– what are we talking about?

Steffy: When you were here, when we told the kids about finn.

Liam: Oh, well, are you kidding? I wouldn’t have been anywhere else. I wanted to be here to help you answer kelly’s questions. Or, I don’t know. I just figured if there was anything I could– hey, listen, hayes is going to have father figures. He’s going to have ridge in his life. He’s going to have thomas in his life. But he’s also kelly’s younger brother and… if you need me to play that role, I– I will step up.

Steffy: Thank you.

Liam: Yeah. Oh, also, um, hope wanted me to ask you if you, if you want any help planning a memorial service. I– I imagine you want one. So if you need us to make any phone calls.

Steffy: I appreciate that. And I’m planning on doing it. I just, I want to think about finn’s mother. I want li to be involved.

[ Machines beeping ]

Li: We know now about who did this to you, so you don’t have to worry anymore. Sheila won’t ever hurt you again. That awful woman. Tried to call herself your mother. She could’ve killed you. I saved you, son. Did all I could to keep you here. It’s time to come back. It’s time to come back, finn. Please, come back.

[ Sobbing ] Hi, I’m karen.

Brooke: Is there anything steffy needs right now? Maybe I could take the kids. And I know that hope wants to help, too.

Taylor: Well, I– I will let her know that you offered. I– I think that having kelly and hayes close by is good for steffy. It’s a much needed comfort.

Brooke: Yeah, I’m sure that’s true. I just keep thinking about them, those poor kids. Hayes is never going to remember his daddy.

Ridge: No, but he’ll know about him. Know what he did, know he gave up his life to save steffy. He was a hero. We’ll make sure of it.

Liam: You hungry? I can make you a sandwich.

Steffy: No, I’m fine.

Liam: I’ll even put meat in it.

[ Chuckling ] Okay.

[ Knocking on door ]

Liam: You’re expecting someone?

Steffy: No.

Liam: Chief baker.

Chief baker: Hi, liam. Um, may I?

Liam: Yeah. Yes, of course. Yes.

Chief baker: Hello, steffy. Uh, I hope I’m not intruding.

Steffy: No. No. Is that…

Chief baker: Finn’s wallet, his ring, your rings, also your purse.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: Thank you. It’s a lot harder than I imagined.

[ Sobbing ] His wallet. His rings. It’s just things. That’s what finn is now. He’s just… things.

[ Machines beeping ]

Li: They tried telling me you’re gone. Maybe, eventually I’ll have to admit that they were right. But not yet. And definitely not that night.

[ Sirens blaring ]

Man: Dr. Finnegan? Yes, the paramedics did manage to get a weak pulse in the ambulance. We see no brain activity, and we’ve done everything possible to save him. I’m afraid you know, as well as I do, there’s no chance to revive him.

Li: They may have given up on you, but I didn’T. I knew you weren’t ready to go. I know you can hear me, finn. I know you’re just as determined as I am, for you to wake up. You’re a fighter. Keep fighting. My name is trisha.

Brooke: Okay. Well, I’m going to take off and leave you two and go check on hope.

Taylor: Brooke, I– i want to thank you.

Brooke: Me? Why?

Taylor: Because it seems that your main concern is steffy and her kids, and sheila attacked you too. It was beyond cruel. It’s just a– a nasty thing to do to a recovering alcoholic. And as– as much as you seem to want to be here for steffy and the kids, I, I want to be here for you, too.

Chief baker: I didn’t mean to upset you, bringing these over.

Steffy: No, it’s fine. I’m– I’m glad you did.

Liam: I’ll um, I’ll walk you out.

[ Sobbing ]

[ Continues sobbing ]

Steffy: Oh, finn.

[ Sobbing ] I, uh, I got him this wallet for his birthday.

[ Steffy sniffling ]

Liam: You know, you should, uh, you should save this. You should keep it, for hayes, when he’s old enough. I have a few things left from my mom and,uh, it’s important. He’ll want it.

Steffy: Gah. Gosh. Until death do us part. It wasn’t supposed to be this soon.

Li: So glad I was there working that night. Twist of fate. The ambulance brought you to my hospital instead of steffy’s, with the doctor working on you, never believed you were going to pull through. So I smuggled you out of there. Signed the death certificates. No one caught on. So here you are. No one knows. They all think you’re gone. But you’re not. I won’t give up. (Dana)it’s very difficult for the family

Ridge: Well, I’m very happy that the two of you have found a way to put your differences behind you. For steffy’s sake, and for the kids. It’s what they need right now, right, for us to be united. To be a family. She just needs to know that she’s not alone.

Steffy: I might save this for hayes too. No, I’ll probably keep it for myself.

Liam: All right, good. Either way, finn lives on. In the people who love him.

Finn: Steffy forrester, will you marry me?

Steffy: Yes!

Finn: I give you this ring as a sign of my love and commitment to you.

Steffy: If you had told me then how little time we had?

Liam: It’s not fair. You two deserved decades together.

Steffy: I really can’t believe it. You can’T… we woke up that day, we had so many possibilities. Our whole life ahead of us. We were supposed to grow old together.

[ Sniffling ] And now he’s gone.

Li: Anyone else would have given up, not a mother. Not this mother. Do you know how proud I was when you graduated from medical school? When you got the er job? Knowing you had a bright future. How did it all go so wrong? We both know how. You got caught up in steffy’s world. The forresters, and all their baggage. That brought sheila, didn’t it? After all those years of raising you and loving you, your birth mother shows her face, demanding to be in your life? A life she tried to take. I could have lost you. But you’re safe now. You’re here, sweetheart. With your mother. I’ll always protect you. Whatever it takes. Whatever I have to do. Never give up on you, finn. Never.

Steffy: Finn’s gone. He’s really gone. And I just have to find a way to accept it. Somehow understand that he’s– he’s dead.

Hope: So, you and steffy told kelly and hayes, I mean, how are they doing, are they okay?

Liam: Thanks, um, yeah, they– they’re okay. It was, uh, yeah, it was tough. We had to tell them that, um, finn isn’t– he’s not coming home, but he’s always going to be with us. And honestly, I think that part was harder on steffy and me, than it was for the kids. But I co– I could see kelly processing.

Hope: I’m sorry. That– that must have been really tough. For all of you.

Liam: Still can’t believe any of this.

Steffy: Sometimes I wish my memory never came back, especially seeing my husband die.

Taylor: I’m so sorry that you had to see– go through that.

Steffy: To realize it was sheila. Sheila killed him. God, just makes it even more tragic. Finn should be here with us, he should be here with his family.

Taylor: Oh, he should.

[ Sighing ] How did– how did the kids take it, whenever you and liam told them?

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: Kelly was brave. I mean– she was confused, especially when we said finn was gone, but we’ll always be able to see him in our memories.

[ Sniffling ] And we’ll remember the good times. And– and hayes, he just– he’s so little. He doesn’t really understand. But I think he senses something.

Taylor: Of course. This is so overwhelming for you. Have you– have you given any more thought to a memorial service?

Steffy: Yeah, of course. I want to honor finn’s life, and I want li to be involved. I mean, she’s his mother, no matter how you look at it. But we need to talk to her, before we plan anything. Li needs to know the truth about how finn died.

Taylor: Yes, um, I actually reached out to her earlier. She should be on her way right now.

Hope: You know, thank god, steffy, you know, she isn’t alone. She has taylor at the house, ridge and thomas are just a phone call away. You know, I’m only saying this because she does have a really good support system in place.

Liam: Yeah, no, she has a great support system. It’s not that at all. We just didn’t get to debrief, we told the kids, and then I had to leave, you know?

Hope: I get it.

Liam: Can I tell you something?

Hope: Mm.

Liam: I’m not taking this for granted. Just that fact that you’re– you’re here, you know, I can– I can touch you, and I can hold you, and I can lay with you. And that’s– I mean, these are things that steffy’s never going to get to do with finn again.

Hope: I know, it’s tragic.

Liam: I just can’t imagine what steffy’s going through. First, she loses her husband, and then she finds out it was sheila who did it?

Taylor: Well, we talked about reaching out to li. So, I– I just went ahead and did it.

Steffy: Oh, good. Yeah, I reached out, but she didn’t respond.

Taylor: Ah, you know, li is dealing with finn’s loss too. Everyone grieves differently. Some people want to be close to family and friends. Others want to shut down.

Steffy: I guess that’s how li copes. She basically took on all the end of life details, and disappeared. I didn’t even get a chance to see finn before he was cremated.

Taylor: I’m so sorry. That made everything so much harder for you.

[ Steffy sighing ]

[ Knocking on door ]

Taylor: Okay. Here we go.

Steffy: Yeah. Okay.

Taylor: Li, hi, thank you for coming.

Steffy: Li, hi. Please, please sit.

Li: Sorry, I haven’t–

Steffy: No, no, don’T. Don’t apologize.

Taylor: Yeah, can I get you anything?

Li: No, thank you. You said there’s something I need to know about finn’s murder?

Steffy: We have news, about the person who killed your son. For copd,

Hope: I know that sheila has done some horrible things in the past and that she could be dangerous if she ever felt threatened. But I mean, come on, she’s still a human being. And I did give her the benefit of the doubt, when she said that she wanted a place in finn’s life and wanted to know her grandson, because I’m sorry, it’s– it’s relatable. And I could understand that. I mean, I’m– I’m a mom. But what does she do? No, um, instead, she shoots finn in an alley, uh, takes her grandson’s father away. I mean, she also shot his mother, too, and– and steffy could have died from that. So, yeah, you know, sheila doesn’t deserve to see the light of day ever again. She doesn’T.

Liam: It just– breaks my heart. Hayes is going to grow up without his father. Finn, you know, he was a good man. He really was. And he was a good father. And not just to hayes. I mean, everybody would expect that, but– but he was a good stepfather to kelly. And he didn’t have to be. He could have been– he could have been a distant stepfather, especially with me in the picture. You kidding me? But he embraced my daughter. And he just– and he loved her and… I don’t know, I’m always gonna be grateful to him for that. I wish kelly had more time. Okay, uh, I think I’m going to go to steffy’S.

Hope: Okay. All right.

Liam: I will, uh, I won’t be long. I love you.

Hope: I love you.

[ Sighing ]

Bill: Wait, what– liam? Okay. Good to see you, too.

Hope: Hi.

Bill: He just took off– hi. Took off like he did something wrong. Did he?

Hope: No, not at all.

Bill: Where was he off to, in such a hurry?

Hope: Oh, he went to go check in on steffy.

Bill: Aah. You okay with that?

Hope: Yes, of course I am. Steffy needs all the support she can get right now.

Bill: Something else happened?

Hope: Oh, steffy remembered who shot finn and her.

Bill: Who?

Hope: It was sheila.

[ Bill stutters ]

Taylor: Kelly and hayes are with the sitter so we can talk.

Li: How is my grandson?

Steffy: He’s good. He– he misses his daddy.

Li: Ah, I think of him all the time.

Steffy: You know, you can see him whenever you want.

Li: Thank you. Thank you. Tell me, what have you learned?

Steffy: Remembered, actually. My memory of that night, it– it came back.

Li: I can only imagine how painful that is.

Steffy: Excruciating. I was telling my mom how much I wish I hadn’t remembered.

Li: Who did it? Who shot you and my son?

Steffy: It was sheila.

Li: That woman! How could she shoot him? Sheila gave birth to him. The one good thing she ever did. Why?

Steffy: Uh… she was manipulating people’s lives again. And I went to go confront her. And– she didn’t want the truth to come out. So she pulled out a gun. She was– she was going to shoot me. And that’s when finn showed up. And he– he jumped in front of me and– he was trying to protect me. He saved my life. He’s a hero.

Li: I’m not surprised. That’s my boy. A protector, a healer. A loving husband. Father, who has so much love to give.

Steffy: Sheila’s in, uh, she’s in custody now. I know it doesn’t bring finn back, but now she’s going to have to answer for what she did.

Li: Everything was fine. Jack and I were together. Finn had just married you, happier than he’d ever been. Sheila shows up, and ruins everything. Upended finn’s entire world, and now this? I can’t imagine a life without my son. I’ll do anything to have him back. (Vo) at the tidy cats innovation lab.

Taylor: I am– I am so sorry, li. You are a wonderful mother, finn– finn was, uh, remarkable. He was warm and kind and loving, and– and you did that. And no one, not even sheila, can take that away.

Steffy: Li, finn adored you. I know this is– well, it’s never the right time, but, um, I just wanted your input on the memorial service. I mean, it doesn’t have to be big or anything–

Li: I don’t wanna go there right now.

Steffy: I understand that. It’s the last thing I– I want to discuss–

Li: You can have a memorial service any time. It doesn’t have to be now.

Steffy: Okay, but there’s still things that we– we need to figure out, like, are we going to scatter his ashes? Assuming you haven’t done so? I– I am not sure–

Li: Steffy. Stef– stop. I can’t have this conversation. I refuse to think of finn being gone from this world.

Steffy: And I understand that completely. But as his wife, I still want to honor his life.

Li: I will take care of everything, when it comes to my son.

Bill: You know, uh, there– there’s not a lot that I would put past sheila, but this really does take me by surprise. She killed finn? Her long, lost son that she would have moved heaven and earth, if it bought her a minute of his time.

Hope: Mm hm.

Bill: And– and steffy knows all of this?

Hope: Steffy’s memory of that night is back now.

Bill: That’s got to be so tough. How are the kids doing?

Hope: Well, uh, steffy and liam actually told them both earlier, and– and kelly’s okay, she’s still processing, and hayes is, obviously, still pretty young, but I’m sure he feels his father’s absence.

Bill: Oh well, of course he does. I– finn is gone for no good reason, because sheila felt threatened, so she acted out.

Hope: You know, what sticks with me is the fact that finn, his instinct was to protect his wife, in that moment, he didn’t even give a second thought about himself. He just jumped in front of that bullet.

Bill: Went out a hero. Not that it’s any consolation.

Hope: Yeah. So, um, yeah, that’s where liam went, to check in on steffy, because he is obviously very worried about her right now.

Steffy: Is it just me, or was li acting, like, super strange?

Taylor: No, it– it wasn’t just you. I guess– I mean, she just– she just lost her son in a very violent, and horrific way, but you also lost your husband. I– everyone copes differently.

Steffy: I just got a weird vibe from li, but like, you’re– you’re right. There’s no proper way to grieve the loss of someone you love. Oh, the damage sheila’s caused my family. Just awful.

[ Knocking ]

Liam: Hey.

Steffy: Hey.

Liam: Uh… kids have been dropped off with amelia, but um… I don’t know. I just– I just wanted to come back and check if you’re okay after, you know, telling them.

Li: Sheila carter. Go with simparica trio it’s triple protection made simple! On loan for a bit. Steffy is– is reeling, understandably. But she is tough. She’s strong. She knows those kids need her. So I have no doubt that she will come back, better than ever. And in the meantime, she just needs, uh, some extra support.

Hope: It’s a lot.

Bill: I know that liam will do whatever he can to help her through it.

Liam: Here you go.

Steffy: Thanks.

Liam: Is there, um, is there anything I can do?

Steffy: Just be with me. So what now?

Liam: How do you mean?

Steffy: How do I move on?

Liam: Oh. You know, I don’t know. But I do know you’ll figure it out. ‘Cause that’s kind of your thing.

[ Scoffing ]

Steffy: I don’t know if I can, this time. I watched the life drain out of my husband. Oh, we were just starting our life together. Our future, our family. Sheila robbed us, especially hayes. He’s only going to have vague memories of his father, if that. Finn and hayes deserved so much more.

Liam: Maybe, um, maybe it’s healthy to ask yourself, “what would finn want?”

[ Steffy sobbing ]

Steffy: To go on. To have the best lives? I don’t know. I don’t think I can do that.

Liam: Yes, you can. You can. You wanna know how I know? Because you’re not alone. You have an amazing family, who would do anything for you. And you have me too. Anything you need, I’ll show up. Day or night. Doesn’t matter.

Steffy: Thank you, because I’m going to need that. I can’t stand it, this, liam, he’s– he’s gone. Finn’s gone, he’s never– he’s never coming back.

Li: It’s a cold, cruel world. Maybe you’re better off where you are. But as long as there’s still a chance, I won’t give up.

Eric: You left the house pretty early this morning.

Ridge: Just catching up on some work.

Eric: Going to stop and see steffy later?

Ridge: Anytime she needs me.

Eric: Taylor’s still there. Steffy’s not alone.

Ridge: I– I know that. Thank you. I appreciate it. Thank you.

Eric: It was hard to leave, though, wasn’t it?

Ridge: Yes, it was. And I know it was the right thing to do, uh– and thank you for letting me stay at the house.

Eric: It’s a lot of bags, though, just for a few days. It’s just a few days, right?

[ Ridge laughing ]

Eric: It’s your house, my boy. You know that. It always will be. How is steffy?

Ridge: She’s struggling.

Eric: It’s unbelievable that– that sheila shot steffy and then she– murdered finn.

Ridge: Well, she’s in custody now. Maybe she’ll stop hurting the people I love.

Eric: Ridge, you couldn’t have known that sheila was responsible for brooke falling off the wagon. Don’t blame yourself.

Hope: Mom, we can always pick this up later.

Brooke: Oh, I’m sorry, honey.

Hope: No, no, it’s fine. It’s just– yeah, it’s clear your mind is somewhere else, and frankly, so is mine. Can’t stop thinking about what really happened with finn.

Brooke: How can a man that good have a mother so evil?

Hope: Sheila’s going to pay for what she did.

Brooke: Yeah, she is. She’s going to go to prison for finn’s murder. And I’m going to go there and look her in the eye, and confront her for all of her crimes.

Sheila: What is going on? Why am I here?

[ Buzzer ringing ]

Baker: Sheila.

Sheila: What do you want?

Officer: Careful.

[ Buzzer ringing ]

Sheila: I don’t have to answer any more of your questions.

Baker: Not a problem. I don’t have any.

Sheila: Then why am I here?

[ Cuffs jangling ]

Hope: Mom, are you sure confronting sheila is a good idea?

Brooke: Hope, she tried to destroy me. I talked to chief baker, and he’s going to meet me there at the jail.

Hope: Okay, just please be careful?

[ Deacon chuckling ]

Deacon: Hey. Hey, honey. How’s it going? Your mom just took off on a mission.

Hope: Yeah. Um, yeah, I– I have a lot to fill you in on.

Deacon: Is everything okay? You sounded kind of stressed on the phone.

Hope: So we know who shot steffy and finn. It wasn’t a robbery. It was someone they knew. It’s someone you know too.

Deacon: Who?

Hope: Sheila.

Sheila: I’m not talking to you or the D.A., Without my attorney.

Baker: Oh, I think she has everything she needs for your case, sheila.

Sheila: Then what do you want?

Baker: I’m allowing you a visitor. Someone who really wants to see justice finally served.

Ridge: Sheila is more evil than we realized.

Eric: Yeah. She’s caused a lot of trouble for this family, but we’ll get through it the way we always do, together.

Ridge: Keep reminding steffy of that.

Eric: And I’m here to tell you that.

Ridge: What would I do without my father’s wisdom? And his hospitality.

Eric: It’s hard to know. But you can pay me back by bringing dinner tonight. All right?

Ridge: Okay.

Eric: All right. I got to go. I have a meeting.

Ridge: Me, too.

[ Sighing ]

[ Knocking ]

Taylor: Hi.

Ridge: Hey.

Taylor: I’m a little early. Hope that’s okay.

Ridge: Of course. Always nice to see you.

Taylor: Nice to see you too. Hi.

Ridge: Hey. You’re getting settled into eric’s okay?

Ridge: Yeah, you know him, he likes being the host.

Taylor: You are so missed at the house, by the way. Oh! But I’m glad you’re doing this. I really am. You have a lot to sort out.

Taylor: Thank you for understanding.

Taylor: Yeah. Understanding each other has never been our problem.

Ridge: Always gonna be here for you and the kids.

Taylor: I know. I know. You know, liam is over with steffy right now, and they’re telling kelly and hayes about finn.

Ridge: That can’t be easy.

Taylor: No. And now this. You know, we were both so prepared to just support steffy in her loss. Never in a million years did we ever think that thomas–

Ridge: Why is he lying to us?

Taylor: I don’t know.

>>Ridge: He knew that sheila was responsible for brooke drinking. Why is he not telling us that? Why?

Thomas: Hey, you two. You, uh, you wanted to see me? What’s going on? Effective skincare can be affordable.

Deacon: I just– I– I still don’t understand– you– you said that finn died, saving steffy. Look, it– was no secret that sheila hated steffy, but, I mean, wanting her dead? And what the hell were they doing in that alley?

Hope: Okay, so steffy actually found something out that could turn everyone against sheila, including finn. And remember, sheila was trying to convince everyone that she had changed, when really, she hadn’T. And steffy finally had something that could prove it.

Deacon: What did sheila do?

[ Sighing ]

Hope: She went after mom. Mom never really understood why she drank that night, but now we know. It was sheila. She was pretty much behind everything that happened that night, and everything horrible that has happened ever since.

Thomas: Uh, is everything okay? Because I’ve been texting and calling steff and i haven’t heard back.

Taylor: Yeah, we asked her to let us speak to you first.

Thomas: So, something is going on?

Ridge: Yeah, there’s been a break in the case.

Thomas: Wait really, wh– what is it?

Ridge: Steffy remembers who the shooter was. Sheila.

Thomas: That’s insane. Finn is her son!

Ridge: Finn died trying to save your sister.

Thomas: Look, I know sheila- she’s a terrible person. She tried to kill people before, but steffy? And her own son? Like– why?

Taylor: That’s why we want–

Ridge: We think you know why.

Thomas: If I’d known anything about who hurt steffy, I would have gone straight to the police and told them.

Taylor: Thomas. Steffy overheard you on the phone talking to sheila. That’s how she found out what sheila did to brooke. Steffy went to il giardino to confront her.

Thomas: No, no, no, no.

Ridge: They argued, she pulled a gun, and you know the rest.

Sheila: The only person I want to talk to is my attorney. What happened in the alley was a tragic accident. I never meant to hurt anyone.

Baker: Then why take a gun?

Sheila: I didn’t want to use it. I never would have turned it on my own son.

Baker: Right. You were there to shoot steffy forrester. I don’t think that defense is going to be a winner for you.

[ Buzzer ringing ] Oh, here we go.

Brooke: Thank you for making the deal with me.

Baker: Well, the rules were explained to you. Keep your distance from the prisoner.

Brooke: Yes.

Baker: I’ll give you a few minutes.

[ Knocking ] And remember, the guard is standing right outside the door.

Brooke: Thank you.

[ Door clicking ] You seem surprised to see me. What you did to me, sheila, wasn’t nearly as horrifying as what you did to your own son. I just want you to know you’re not going to get away with this. Nexgard is the flea and tick protection

Deacon: Sheila switched the labels on the champagne bottles to get your mother drunk?

Hope: Because mom threatened sheila’s relationship with finn.

Deacon: Nobody threatens sheila.

Hope: Yeah. And mom being an alcoholic, her sobriety is paramount to her well-being. So. Yeah. Yeah. What, uh, sheila did is sick.

Deacon: I am such an idiot. I– honey, I’m so sorry.

Hope: Please. It’s not your fault.

Deacon: So it’s out? Everybody knows?

Hope: Yeah.

Deacon: Well, this– this changes everything for your mom and ridge.

Hope: Yeah. I wish, but, uh, no. Ridge isn’t ready to come home yet.

Deacon: Huh.

Taylor: Your sister remembered everything about the shooting.

Ridge: And everything that led up to it.

Thomas: Steff heard me talking to sheila about what she did to brooke?

Taylor: Yes.

Thomas: That’s why steffy was in the alley that night. God. I’m so sorry.

[ Scoffing ] I knew I shouldn’t have kept that to myself. I had no idea. I mean– I thought– I– I saw you two together and how happy you were, and I just– I didn’t want– I wanted you to have a little more time together–

Ridge: You didn’t think I needed that information?

Thomas: I knew that if you found out, then you’d go straight back to–

Ridge: That wasn’t your call, thomas. It wasn’t your call! You should know better than anyone what it means to keep secrets from the family. You should have told me. I’m your father. Brooke is my wife. Like it or not, she’s my wife.

Brooke: All right. You don’t have anything to say, sheila?

Sheila: I have the right to remain silent.

Brooke: Good one. I don’t want to hear your stupid excuses anyway.

Sheila: Why did you ever have to threaten me, brooke? All I wanted was a chance at a life with my son.

Brooke: What are you talking about? You killed your son. You made steffy a widow. And because of you, hayes is going to grow up without a father. You ripped that family apart, sheila. And that little boy. He is not going to forgive you.

Sheila: That is not what I wanted. I never wanted that for him. I never wanted that for the family. I– I was trying to help their family.

Brooke: By interfering with mine?

Sheila: Oh. Oh, that’s what this is really about. Not that my son is gone. Or steffy’s life is shattered. You want me to feel sorry for what I did to you? Oh, god, you are pathetic.

Brooke: No, no, I just want you to pay. For all of it.

Sheila: You have no idea how I am haunted by that night. And if I could go back, and change things, I would– none of it ever would’ve happened. But I will never, never apologize for what I did to you.

With age comes more…

Deacon: So ridge knows that it was sheila that got your mother to drink, and he still won’t forgive brooke?

Hope: Mm hm, I mean, ridge supports mom. He just isn’t ready to come home yet. He said he needed some more time to figure things out.

Deacon: What the hell is there to figure out? It’s ridiculous, he– ha ha! Ah, wait. Mm, now I got it. It’s taylor, right? I mean, she is an amazing woman, but she’s no brooke logan. Stop it. Don’t look at me like that. Because it– your mother is… there’s no one like her. All right, you didn’t get all this goodness from me, that’s for damn sure. She’s understanding and she’s kind. And she’s devoted. Loyal. You know, ridge moved out. Your mom could’ve written him off, but instead she’s fighting for their marriage. My question is, why isn’t he? I– I just don’t get it! It’s like, how does forrester not know how lucky he is to have brooke’s love?

Taylor: Okay, ridge, just– easy.

Ridge: Come on! Just tell me, what possessed you? What was it?

Thomas: I wanted to tell you. Yeah, I was going to, but then things kind of happened. Steffy was in the hospital, and finn was gone, and we were worried about her. We’re trying to take care of the kids. How could I know that– that steffy had overheard me talking to sheila? God, I just– I can’t believe it. I can’t believe that stupid secret is the reason that steffy and finn got shot.

Taylor: Hold on a second, thomas. We are not putting this on you.

Thomas: Hah, finn might not have died.

Thomas: Sheila is the reason that finn died. She pulled the trigger. She took his life.

Thomas: But I’m the reason he and steffy were there.

Ridge: All right, stop it. Sheila attacked steffy, finn, and my wife. You should’ve talked to me. Could’ve helped you, I could’ve helped brooke. Instead of just watching her suffering. I could’ve helped her. But you didn’t give me that chance. It didn’t have to end like this.

Sheila: I would rather go back to cell than to spend another moment here with you. Guard!

Brooke: We’re not done. Sheila, you’re gonna spend the rest of your life in a cell. So why not just spend a few moments here with me? I– I would never compare my pain and my loss to what steffy and her children have to go through. The loss of finn. That’s going to affect them for the rest of their lives. And yes, you did impact my life, too. You knew the history I had with alcohol. Yet, you got me to drink. And you made that night happen, all of those horrible events, and you have no remorse about it whatsoever. But you will. You will regret it, and all of the horrible things that you’ve done. I came here to look into your eyes and tell you that you are no longer going to terrorize steffy, or her family, or me or the forresters ever again. You don’t belong out there in society with the good people, the normal people. You belong in here, sheila, for the rest of your life. And I’m going to make sure that that happens.

[ Cuffs jangling] Now, we’re done. Guard.

Sheila: You never learn, do you, brooke?

[ Buzzer ringing ] You should never threaten me.

Brooke: No, sheila, you don’t learn. I mean, look where you are, and you’ll never threaten me ever again.

Sheila: You haven’t won. This isn’t over, brooke. You, ridge, steffy. You haven’t seen the last of me because I will be back.

[ Sheila laughing ]

Update written by Suzanne

At Steffy’s place, Taylor, Ridge and Steffy continue to confront Sheila about what she’s done. She keeps saying that she’s the real victim because she lost her son (even though she’s the one who pulled the trigger). They yell at her and say she’s going to jail. Sheila tries to turn it around on them, calling them cruel for inviting her there and blames Steffy for coming after her that night. Ridge yells loudly at her to shut up and calls her sick. Steffy hopes that Sheila suffers miserably for the rest of her life. Sheila points out that Finn would tell her to have compassion for her “mistake,” but Steffy denies it. Taylor lets Sheila know that she’s not her friend and will never take her side again. Ridge tells Sheila with a smile that he’s happy she will die in prison for all she’s done to his family. Steffy sobs, upset.

Steffy points out that this is why she didn’t want her anywhere near their family. She regrets that Finn didn’t listen to her warnings. She will protect her son from Sheila. Sheila says they have no idea how sorry she is that he’ll grow up with his father, but she’s adamant that she’s not going to prison. She starts to run out, but uniformed police officers stop her at each exist. Detective Baker comes out and tells Steffy that she can take off her wire now, so she does. Sheila is shocked as he explains that he’s been in the back room, listening. He informs her that she’s going back to prison for a long time and then arrests her for murder. Sheila insists that she get to speak before they haul her off. She tells them that they were all so sure that she meant harm when she came there, but she just wanted to know her son and be a part of his life. She blames Steffy for keeping her away. She says they’ll never know what it’s like to cherish having someone love her unconditionally because they all take it for granted. She babbles on about how much she loved Finn. Steffy tells her that Finn didn’t want her kind of toxic love. Steffy accuses her of destroying her family, and she’s going to have to forget about her, but she says Sheila didn’t destroy her, and she vows to raise her son to be like Finn: Strong and compassionate. The opposite of Sheila, in other words. Steffy twists the knife by saying Sheila will be completely erased because their son won’t even know her name. They take Sheila away as she yells that she’ll be back and that Hayes will love her one day. She vows that she’ll be back and they haven’t seen the last of her. Steffy’s parents console her.

Taylor assures Steffy that Sheila won’t be back. Steffy is upset about what Sheila said about wanting Hayes’ love. Ridge assures her that Steffy won’t get out of jail. Steffy is glad that she has her memory back. Taylor turns the conversation to Brooke. She thinks that Ridge should go tell Brooke what really happened. He’s reluctant to leave them but leaves after they insist. He kisses Steffy’s head and squeezes hand before he goes. Steffy looks sadly at the photos of Finn. She still can’t believe everything that Sheila did and is worried that Brooke learning the truth will change things for her parents.

At home, Brooke tells Hope that Deacon was indulging in “wishful thinking” that Sheila might be able to talk her way into a place in Steffy’s family. Hope wonders if he’s right, since Taylor invited her over. Brook doubts Ridge would ever accept her. She wishes she and Ridge weren’t apart because she would love to be there for him. Hope thinks they need to fix that. Brooke still feels guilty for betraying his trust and still wants to figure out why she took a drink that night. Hope wonders if it’s because of the drinking or what it led to? Brooke shakes her head in confusion. She admits that what she did with Deacon was wrong, but she still wants to figure out why she drank, so she can start forgiving herself. Hope reminds her for the 10,000th time that she was “inebriated” and that nothing happened with Deacon. Brooke cries, upset. Hope begs her to stop beating herself up and obsessing. Brooke hopes that Ridge can trust her again. She won’t give up on him. They smile at each other and hold hands as Brooke says that she and Ridge will find their way back to each other.

Ridge drops by to see Brooke. He isn’t sure, at first, what to tell Brooke because so much has happened. He tells her that Steffy remembers the shooting. Brooke is glad to hear it. Ridge tells her that Sheila shot Steffy and Finn and then took their stuff to make it look like a robbery. Brooke is shocked. He tells her that Sheila has confessed and is behind bars. He lets her know Steffy went to the restaurant to confront Sheila about what she did New Year’s Eve. He tells her that Sheila switched the labels on the Champagne bottles so that Brooke thought she was drinking non-alcoholic bubbly. They hug. Brooke looks hopeful.
