At the cliff house, Finn and Steffy remark that the kids will have a fun and safe day with Amelia. Finn has to go to work, but Steffy teases about going back to bed. They kiss. Inevitably, the conversations turn to how they can’t believe Sheila is out there…all thanks to Bill. They talk about Katie not getting through to him. Steffy is concerned: “We need to get him out of his involvement with Sheila. But how?”
At Bill’s house, he wakes up to Sheila kissing his chest and moans happily. She tells him it was one of the best nights sleep she’s had in a long time, thanks to him. They kiss. He tells her that last night was incredible and he’s never been with someone like her. Sheila muses, “Someone who truly and unconditionally loves you.” They kiss again.
At the cabin, Liam tells Hope that Bill called in sick again at the office. Hope notes that he stays home with Sheila all day. Liam doesn’t understand this. Wyatt knocks and enters. “Thank God you’re here.” He came back from his business trip because Liam texted him that Sheila is out and confused with their father. Liam explains that’s why he’s been so distant. Hope muses that she did something to him. Wyatt yawns, “This can’t be true.” Liam sniffs, “Well, unfortunately it is. Everything.”
Wyatt wonders what Bill has on Steffy and Finn that would make them keep quiet about Sheila. Liam says that’s not important – what’s important is their father’s involvement with Sheila. “He’s lost his way.” Wyatt yawns, “He’s lost his mind! We have to do something.” They chase the people who know about this and Hope tells Wyatt that Bill won’t listen to anyone. Liam thinks he and Wyatt should go there to put an end to this. Hope asks Liam to to be careful as his father is not in his right mind and Sheila is dangerous.
At the cliff house, Steffy and Finn worry that Sheila will feel untouchable. “It’s only a matter of time before she starts this delusion of being part of your family.” Finn swears it will never happen and tells his wife they will figure out how to make Sheila pay for her crimes.
At Bill’s house, he’s now dressed, drinking coffee, and thinking of Sheila stroking his sword when Wyatt and Liam burst in. Liam informs his father that he is making decisions that put his family in danger. Bill shakes his head, ‘There’s no danger, Liam. That’s the beauty of this. We all move on and no one gets hurt.” The mouths of his sons fall open. Wyatt exclaims that they are worried about him. Liam declares that whatever is going on with him and Sheila Carter, he has to stop it. “Here and now.”
At work, Steffy sits at her desk and flashes back to Sheila showing up at the cliff house in the storm and Bill’s threats. Hope enters and apologizes – she didn’t expect to be there today. Steffy tells her to come in and they discuss Sheila’s threat. They are shocked that Katie couldn’t get through to Bill. Hope reveals that Wyatt and Liam went to see him and will do their best to break the hold Sheila has on him. Steffy discovers that Wyatt knows Bill is blackmailing them, but not the details. They rant about Bill being manipulated by Sheila, who always manages to land on her feet. Steffy fears this will never be over. Hope can understand why she feels this way. Steffy says Sheila may think she won, but she hasn’t forgotten who she is, what she did, or what Bill did to her mother. She won’t forget and promises to make them pay.
At Bill’s house, Wyatt tells his father that Liam told him what he did to Steffy and Finn. “What is the matter with you?!” Liam says Sheila is a literal threat to them. Bill replies, “He’s not.” Liam insists she is – she hurts people and will hurt him too. They complain that Bill isolates himself and locks them out. He doesn’t even go to the office anymore. “That’s your happy place!” Liam and Wyatt assure their father that they want to help him. “We love you.” They are there for him, but not for Sheila, that horrible horrible person. Wyatt tells Bill, “You don’t have to play her game.” Bill says, “There’s no game.” Wyatt yells that of course there is – what other explanation could there be? Sheila appears and says, “Love. I love your father and he loves me.
Wyatt exclaims, “You’re crazier than I thought!” They tell her to leave. She doesn’t budge. Liam tells his father he doesn’t love Sheila – he loves them, Will, Katie and Brooke, and money. Sheila complains that Katie and Brooke didn’t love Bill for who he is, unlike her. “He loves me.” Wyatt screams, “Shut up!” Bill tells Wyatt to be quiet. If he walks into their house, he will show some respect. With that, he walks over to him and puts his arm around Sheila. Liam yawns, “Dad, she tried to kill Steffy and Finn. She poisoned Brooke with alcohol. She should be in prison.” Bill says Sheila isn’t going anywhere. She is staying there with him in their house. “Sheila is my future.” Sheila nestles against Bill’s chest and smiles to herself.
