He doesn’t want to dwell on that and asks if she’s seeing Thomas, reminding her of the hurt he’s put her through.

He doesn’t think he’s right for her.

She doesn’t think they are the same situation.

He’s upset when she tells him that he can’t see the kids while he’s with Sheila.

She’s not sure she can trust him anymore.

As long as Sheila is part of his life, he can’t have access to hers.

hope tells deacon he can't be in her life

She tells him he needs to wake up to the fact that Sheila is using him. He repeats that Sheila has changed.

Hope doesn’t think people with brains like Sheila’s can change.

Deacon points out that Thomas has and so has he.

She thinks that it just feels like he’s choosing himself.

Hope doesn’t want to lose him but he’s not thinking about the impact on his family.

If he doesn’t cut Sheila out for good, she has to remove him from her life.
