Max and Stephanie are taken to Salem PD and Stephanie waits outside Roman's office while Roman demands Max tell them everything. The fibers on Trent's body were from Max's shirt and the blood from Trent Robbins.
Stephanie tells Kayla she did something stupid last night. There is no other guy for her but she's not going to drown her sorrows in any other guys to forget Max. She apologizes to Steve for not being a better daughter. He tells her she's perfect and thinks he can help with Max! He thinks she should work at Adrienne's bar and if she's around Max, he'll start to notice she's the girl for him! Stephanie apologizes for how she handled the Jeremy issue and wishes she handled things like her mother. Steve comforts her and tells her it took years for Kayla to become the woman she is today. "Making mistakes are part of being human," he says. Steph thinks she's definitely human! When Kayla returns and tells them she's taking the day off, Steve goes off to check his text messages (he says) and get her a coffee. Kay thinks Stephanie should let Max go and start over with someone new. They snuggle in bed together and Steve arrives and tells Stephanie that he got a text message from Adrienne, who may need someone at the Cheatin' Heart!

At another booth, Stephanie and Kayla enjoy their desert and discuss Steve. Steph wonders why her parents aren't ready to have another baby, and Kayla explains that Steve still has problems with his memories so she feels that the timing for babies is off. Steph lays off but happily recounts how great Steve was with the kids at the hospital, Christmas Eve. She reminds Kayla of a Christmas long passed when she didn't see Santa. Instead she saw Kayla putting together her bicycle, in tears! She went back to bed and prayed that her dad would come back. She has prayed the same thing each Christmas since then, and this is the reason why she can leave town, she says. "Every prayer for my family has been answered!" They leave for the airport.
Steve says goodbye to Stephanie at their home. Stephanie is really excited to leave for Dayton, even though she knows that her parents will miss her terribly. Steve tells her that she reminds him of himself. He says that she has her mom's good looks and his need to push the envelope! He wants her to be safe but knows she was born to race cars like demons were after her. "You're following your dream," he says and gives her advice. "Don't ever let that fire inside you die." Stephanie hugs her dad and asks him why he doesn't take his own advice? Steve tells her that he has everything under control and thinks that when she gets older, she'll see that it's okay sometimes to pull back. Stephanie asks him to test himself and take an adventure! She notices the time and has to leave. She starts to cry as she leaves and Steve comforts her and tells her that her decision is a good one. Stephanie leaves for Dayton. After she's gone, Steve is hurting inside - in his head and his heart. He flashes back to his last episode and then starts to play his harmonica.
