At the office, Carter and Katie reflect on having said “those three little words” earlier
even though they didn’t really say it, it was what they were feeling. Carter corrects, “Are feeling.” They kiss and Carter coaxes her to stay there, “You don’t really need to go see Bill, do you?” Brooke walks in and finds them canoodling. She’s sorry to interrupt. Katie says she was just leaving, “I have a date with Bill.” Brooke balks, “Oh…” Katie leaves.

At the jail, Sheila learns her next visitor is another inmate. Mike appears and coos, “Hey, Dollface.” Sheila beams. The discuss staying in the same five-star joint. Mike heard about her heart problems and wanted to check on her. “Look at you, you look like a mil.” Sheila jokes it must be the five-star cuisine they’ve been feeding her. Mike’s glad she hasn’t lost her sense of humor. Sheila never thought she’d be locked up again. Mike marvels at how her savior, Bill Spencer, double-crossed her, “Did he ever!”

At the jail, Mike asks Sheila why she would expect Finn to come and see her. Sheila says she put in a request to be seen by her attending physician. Mike realizes, “Your son.” Sheila says yes. Finn could have let her die, but he saved her; she thinks that speaks volumes, “Deep down I know he still loves me. He’s going to forgive me and accept me. I can’t sit back and wait for that to happen. I have to make it happen.” Mike reminds her the FBI got her on murder one. Sheila says, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And make no mistake, Mike… I’ve got the will.”

Sheila informs Mike she has no intention of spending the rest of her life in that hellhole. Mike’s heard it all before. She wonders if he’s doubting her. Mike shakes his head, “Oh no. No. I learned a long time ago not to do that, but I’ll say it again. The situation is different now; you confessed to killing two people.” Sheila says she only confessed to killing one person, the other was an accident. Besides, she’ll have someone on the outside helping her. Mike gawps, “Who?” He tells her she’s poison and nobody’s going to touch her. It’s time she faced the fact that she’ll be in this place for a long, long time. The guard appears and tells Sheila she has a visitor… the person she emailed. Sheila grins, “He got my email. He’s coming!” She starts blotting her face and primping herself. Mike demands to know who she’s seeing. Sheila calls, “I’m ready.” Mike hollers, “Sheila, wait! I love you!” as she’s led away.
