At the cliff house, Steffy and Finn go over Sheila’s hold on Bill and Taylor shooting the man being front and center in their lives again. She states that Brooke needs to get through to her mother.

At Taylor’s, Brooke screams her name after finding her unconscious on her bed.

Sheila answers the door at Bill’s house to Deacon, who has her order from Il Giardino and is in disguise. He pulls off his hat and shades and declares he wanted to check out her new digs. Sheila tells him she won’t go back to jail, this is her permanent address. She admits she’s missed Deacon, who tells her he’s missed her too — a lot. Sheila explains Bill’s at the office on a conference call so Deacon should stay awhile. Deacon thinks the mansion suits Sheila, who explains that Bill’s made the transition easy. Deacon shoots her a look when she runs down Bill’s good qualities.

At Bill’s place, Deacon pockets a knight from Spencer’s expensive chess set while Sheila’s getting him a beer. He says he throws up a little in his mouth at the thought of her with Bill. Sheila gushes that he’s an amazing man and her ex-lover can’t believe it. Sheila insists they feel safe showing their vulnerabilities and have an amazing connection. “Bill doesn’t hesitate to admit he’s never been with a woman like me.” Deacon can’t get over it but there’s something he and Spencer agree on, ‘Cause honey, there ain’t nobody like you.” Sheila chuckles.

Deacon and Sheila continue chatting and he teases her about being in “insta-love” with the pompous Bill Spencer. Sheila thinks he’s jealous, but Deacon complains he uses his money to be an obnoxious bully. Sheila argues that he got her out of prison and is gorgeous. “He is mine, all mine.” Deacon calls her out for flaunting her relationship with Bill right in his face. She thinks he should be happy for her. Deacon muses that she hit the jackpot in some ways. Sheila will never forget that he gave her a safe place to stay when she needed it — they made memories she will never forget. Deacon wishes things could have been different between them.

At Bill’s place, Deacon expresses bitterness about her devotion to Dollar Bill. “Have you ever asked yourself what’s in it for him?” Sheila says, “Me. A woman who isn’t going to try and change him or leave.” Deacon warns he’s not trustworthy and urges her not to give him her heart. “He doesn’t deserve it.” Sheila says it may already be too late and Deacon cracks a joke.

Brooke is concerned and insists that her moving in would benefit her as well. She goes home to a big empty house every night. “It would be nice to have a roomie!” Taylor isn’t sure what to say. Brooke urges her to say, “Yes.” She reminds Taylor that they used to be rivals but now they’re good friends. Taylor is going through an emotionally challenging time right now.

Brooke promised she’d always be there for her and she meant it. Taylor thanks her again. Brooke asks, “Does that mean you accept?” She coaxes some more. “Just tell me you’re going to move in with me.”
