Liam leaves, and Wyatt questions Bill as to why he doesn’t seem happy. Bill replies, “I have my concerns.” He mutters about Liam keeping his eye on the prize and not jeopardizing his future. Wyatt notes he’s extra intense today. He came to ask him to borrow his nice car to take Flo up the coast. Bill barks that he can’t have it. When Wyatt protests, Bill interjects, “It’s gone!” Wyatt’s aghast to hear his father sold the car he vowed never to sell. Bill reminds him he’s Dollar Bill — the sheik made a good offer. Once Wyatt leaves, Bill flashes to the night of the accident and grimaces.

Hope reminds her Liam wouldn’t be coming home if she wasn’t ready. Brooke tells her not to let the past determine her future. Liam arrives and agrees with Brooke. Being home with Hope and the kids is the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

After Brooke leaves, Liam jokes that he’s never leaving and adds, “I can’t tell you what it means for me to be here right now.” Hope wants to focus on the happy memories they’ll make. Liam doesn’t want to think about anything but that. He admires the leap of faith she’s taking and assures her he’ll prove he’s worthy of her trust and love. Hope will still be working through it, but this is the first step ahead to their future. “Nothing and no one will take that from us again.” Liam looks worried as they embrace.
