At the cliff house, Steffy gushes about Finn reading to Kelly before they go over having said the ‘L’ word for the first time. Liam knocks and enters. He came to apologize. Liam says he made assumptions about Finn based on what he thought the guy did wrong instead of all the things he did right. If Steffy wants to move on with Finn, and he’s good to Kelly, then he’s on board. Steffy deserves to be appreciated and loved. He vows to back off and let her live her life. Steffy confirms he over-reacted. Finn feels no one can fault him for looking out for Steffy and his daughter. Liam went about it the wrong way and Hope made him see that. Steffy thanks Liam; she’s encouraged, and mentions even Thomas has been on his best behavior. Liam looks unconvinced. Later, Finn reiterates he’ll love Steffy as she’s meant to be loved and they kiss.
