Mike visits her, annoyed that he’s stuck there while she’s getting out. He says his memories of their time together will get him through the long nights.

He’s going to miss her but happy for her. It was a helluva move for her to get Bill in her corner. That was genius.

It would mean a lot to him if she comes back to visit him some time. Wherever she goes in life, he hopes she will think of him. His love for her has never stopped.

When he leans in for a kiss, she slaps him and they laugh.

“You are one hell of a man Bill Spencer,” she says. Bill smiles.

Leaping around the room, Sheila declares that she is free thanks to Bill’s kindness and support. She is so grateful and inspired by him.

Watching how he manipulated people was amazing.

Bill reminds her he put a lot on the line for her. He wants assurances that he won’t let her down for that.
