At the cliff house, Ridge and Taylor are angry that Sheila is trying to blame Stevie for Finn’s death. “I just admitted it!” Sheila wouldn’t hurt him on purpose. You may have pulled the trigger on that fateful night, but he would have still been alive if not for Stevie’s actions. She must get off her high horse.
At Brooke’s place, she and Hope were too amused by Deacon to believe Sheila might be accepted into the Taylor family. Deacon insists that today could be the start of a whole new chapter for Sheila. Hope seems like there’s more to the story; Like he’s holding something back. Deacon can understand why they were suspicious, but he makes it clear that Taylor and Sheila formed a bond. Brooke laughs, “That’s ridiculous.” The deacon insists they shared a life-changing experience. Hope laughed, “Like what?” Deacon astonishes them with the reply, “Like Sheila saved Taylor’s life.” Hope and Brock Gaube.
In a stooped house, Taylor attacks Sheila to blame Stevie for the mess she caused. Sheila reminds her that she saved her life and she is grateful to her. Taylor has been fuming the whole time I’ve known – she knew her daughter was in a coma because she was shot! “You haven’t changed. I’m still the same heartless bitch that you always have been!”
In Brooke’s place, Deacon filled Brooke and Hope off-screen. Hope shines through in the events on the surface. Brooke feels it was terrifying for Taylor – dangling from the side of the ceiling with her life in Sheila’s hands. It is more likely that it will kill a life than save it.
In the cliff house, Ridge Sheila rode to shoot her son in cold blood. You didn’t mean it. He can’t believe she’s trying to justify it by saying that she intends to shoot someone else. Stevie calls her a psycho. Sheila complains that Finn just showed up in the alley… She didn’t have time to think. Ridge argues that she has had time to think about making it sound like a steal. Sheila complains that they are trying to make it look like she planned it. “I wasn’t. I just reacted.” Ridge comments on her leaving his daughter to die. Taylor jumps around her hospital appearance with her fake grief. Sheila’s protests were appalled. Taylor growled that she was horrified that she had just killed her son! As she shrugs off Sheila about the role of a bereaved mother who only wanted a place in her grandson’s life, she knew all along that she was responsible for his father’s death and his mother’s presence at death’s door. “My God, Sheila, how do you even look at yourself?!?” Ridge is ringing, “You’re sick.” Sheila turned on her desire to lose Brock Ridge to Taylor. Stevie asks what does Brooke have to do with this. She told Sheila Taylor that she was trying to right a wrong—she had no idea how far past her really was. Stevie quipped, “Nobody knows what you’re talking about.” Sheila replied, “You do. Go ahead. Tell them about New Year’s Eve.” Ridge asks her to explain what she is seeking.
In Brooke’s place, she and Hope want to know about Deacon’s relationship with Sheila. The deacon teases that she might be jealous. Deacon explains that Sheila lost her son in a horrific way. For once, she has something in common with the family. What a better tribute to Finn than accepting her in the family he left behind. Brooke, as a mother, feels bad for Sheila. Deacon urges her to reach out, but Brooke says she can’t – Ridge would never let her into her life!
At the cliff house, Sheila tells Stevie that she gave her no choice but to shoot her. Ridge and Taylor Fium. Sheila holds her head and tells Taylor that she was trying to help her. This is what New Year’s Eve was all about. She loves her…she loves them all. Sheila wanted to be a part of her but kept slamming doors in her face, what hurts the most is calling Stevie dangerous and crazy saying she would have no place in her son’s life. “What was I supposed to do?” She just wanted sympathy and understanding but Stevie didn’t give up an inch. “I chose to defend Brooke Ali. The woman who destroyed your family.” Taylor asks, “Why do you keep talking about Brock?” Sheila urges Stevie to tell her mother what they were arguing about in the alley that night. Stevie’s memory began. She panted, “You screwed up an alcoholic. I made Brooke up to drink on New Year’s Eve.” Sheila’s eyes meet Ridge.
In Brock’s place, Deacon agrees that the Foresters have every reason to despise Sheila. Brooke reiterates that Ridge will not let her into the family with Hayes. Deacon is jealous that Brooke continues to defend Ridge despite staying with Taylor. Brooke has stated that he is staying at Steffy’s because she betrayed him. “With you.” After all this time, she still didn’t know what made her drink.
At the cliff house, Sheila admits that she changed the labels on the champagne bottles and prepared Brooke to drink. “I did it for your family,” she said to Stevie, who declared she was really delusional. Sheila taunts Brooke and judges her as if she had done nothing wrong. Ridge says, “You made my wife drink. Everything that has happened since then is because of you.” Sheila made her drink, but everything that happened with Dickon was all brook. She explained again that she was trying to help – if they didn’t believe her they could ask Thomas. He saw that she was bringing his parents together again. Stevie says, “She’s right. I heard Thomas on the phone with Sheila. He knew what you did to Brooke.” Ridge will deal with Thomas later. Sheila asks what kind of person is she playing with people’s lives? He cries as he remembers that Brooke decided she was a horrible person. “It’s not. It’s you. You don’t deserve to live.” He will lock her up and promise that every chance he gets, you will make her suffer. Stevie details Sheila’s transgressions and intonations, “There is a special place in hell for you, and that’s exactly where you’re going… After you spend the rest of your miserable life behind bars… Your reign of terror is over. The day ends.”
