In Sheila’s room, Deacon realizes she wants him to help ruin his daughter’s marriage. He needs a drink and tells Sheila, “You’re bonkers, lady!” Sheila insists that the kiss Finn and Hope saw will get everyone talking. Deacon is extremely skeptical. Sheila announces that she wants to be his girlfriend—with all the side benefits. “You’ve been locked away a long time, Deacon. Wouldn’t you like to have your way with me?” She moves in close, “Or maybe I’ll have my way with you.” She closes in on him, and then backs off cackling while he exhales and rolls his eyes. He tells her play time is over and she giggles that he has no idea what she’s capable of.

Deacon still can’t understand what this supposed romance of theirs has to do with Hope and Finn. Sheila explains that Steffy and Liam will be very upset about it, and she’s counting on Hope and Finn to defend them. “They want to trust us; they want to believe we’re redeemable.” She goes no to theorize that it’s going to create tension in their relationships and clear the way for them to be a part of their lives. Sheila can see Deacon is dubious, so asks for his input. They could always kidnap Steffy and Liam and leave them on a deserted island to rot. Deacon hopes she’s kidding because he’s not doing anything to land him back in jail. He thinks her scheme is ridiculous, but she’s certain the buzz is already starting. Soon, they’ll be relevant, not on the sidelines like they are right now. Deacon sees a photo Sheila put together of them together as a family. Sheila calls him ‘honey’ as she explains this is going to happen. “I’m going to make that happen. Nothing and no one will stand in my way.”

At the cliff house, Finn and Hope agree they need to tell Liam and Steffy what they saw even knowing it’s not going to go down well. Steffy and Liam arrive and ask to hear the latest. Finn explains that they went to Il Giardino and while they were there, they saw something unusual. Steffy guesses, “Sheila?!” They add that Deacon was also there. Steffy hopes he didn’t talk to his birth mother. Finn and Hope go on to explain that Deacon and Sheila were “together, together.” Liam and Steffy gawp when they clarify that they are romantically involved and were kissing.

Liam panics when Hope then says she had no choice but to confront them. He asks what they said. Hope relays that Sheila claimed they were in love. Steffy and Liam hope they’re not buying it—it’s a scam. They’re up to something. Steffy hopes they can see that, and Liam adds, “Please tell us you see that.” He scoffs at the idea that Sheila would end up with Deacon of all people. Finn insists they were skeptical, but they were together even before they went over there. Steffy throws up her hands and exclaims in frustration and Liam declares they need to stay away… for the sake of the family. “Just stay away!”
