At the cliffhouse, Steffy apologizes for unloading on Hope, who will go get Kelly if she wants – she was just hoping to talk. She asks, “Are you really alright?” Steffy’s raising her voice to tell Hope her questions aren’t helpful when Dr. Finnegan arrives. Hope is surprised to see he makes house calls. She notes that she’s worried about Steffy who isn’t herself – it’s important for her doctor to know what’s going on. Steffy thinks her doctor should hear it from her. Hope says he can’t help if she’s not being completely honest. She wants Steffy to be okay and promises to return soon with Kelly. After, Steffy regrets losing her temper. Finn asks if there’s something he needs to know. Steffy confides that Hope is the other woman in Liam’s life and gives him a rundown on the kids. Talk turns to her medication and she asks for another refill. Finn suggests scheduling more tests, but she argues the pills make her feel better. Finn understands she’s frustrated and exhausted but her little girl will be there soon. He reminds her she’s a remarkable woman in pain…and he suspects she’s becoming dependent on the pills that alleviate that pain. He can’t let her go down that slippery slope. Finn says she’s not alone. “I’m here for you, Steffy.”
