Meanwhile, Ellie shows Spin her wiggling toes in her room and they are both ecstatic. Steve deems she will fully heal with time. Ellie is sure having Spin by her side is what helped and they lovingly stare at each other. He leaves to get her ice cream and runs into Maxie in the hall. He tells her the good news about Ellie’s prognosis. He feels closer than ever to Ellie and it is not because he is getting over Maxie or guilt. It is just because of her and who they are together.

Britt tells her carrying a baby for Lulu and Dante is no longer an option. Decisions need to be made but this will remain between them while she thinks about what to tell Lulu and Dante, who just happen to walk up.
