At Spencer, Bill asks, “You’re telling me to stay away from Steffy?” Liam apologizes and goes back to complaining about Finn, who now calls himself her advocate. He explains this is his business because she’s the mother of his child and blames Finn’s lack of objectivity for her becoming hooked on pills. Bill warns he needs to be careful – he understands better than most that he’ll always want to protect Steffy because a part of him will always love her.

At rehab, Finn tells Steffy he understands Liam has issues with him and is looking out for her. He reveals he’s been talking to her case manager about her recovery – there’s something he wants to show her. A caseworker, Michael Turner, enters and tells Steffy there are a lot of powerful stories out there – he wants to show her one of them. Steffy tears up as she watches a video of a man who got hooked on pain pills and asked for help. She’s inspired. Finn asks, “Inspired enough to do one yourself?” He points out she has a lot of followers online and could help someone. Steffy agrees and records her story as the men look on. Michael’s impressed and Finn decides she’s ready for his news. “You’re going home.” Steffy learns she’s being released today and thanks Finn. “I get to see my little girl!”
