At Steffy’s place, she wheels her luggage to the front door and turns back to look at all the framed photos of her and Finn. Taylor appears and asks if she’s having second thoughts about leaving. Steffy really needs to get away with the kids. Her mother thinks a new perspective will do her good. She just doesn’t want to feel she’s leaving Finn behind or forgetting him. Taylor reminds her that Finn will be with her always and gives her a hug. Ridge comes in and says it will be alright. He embraces her too.

In Li’s room, she tells her son, “You must be so scared and confused.” But she’s right there and won’t give up on him. She knows he’s not giving up either — she saw his eyes twitch the other day. It’s a sign he’s still fighting.

At the cabin, Liam tells Hope it’s hard to know what Kelly understands and what she doesn’t about Finn being gone.

Hope asks if there will be a memorial and Liam explains that Li’s being super standoffish. Just then, he gets a call from Steffy asking him to come over. He disconnects and tells Hope that he has to go; something’s up. They kiss and he runs out.

At the cliff house, Steffy tells her parents that Liam is on his way. She hopes he understands about her taking Kelly. They’re sure he’ll be supportive of her doing what she needs to in order to heal.

At the cabin, Hope is trying to get her head around the news that Steffy is leaving and taking the kids with her… and her mother suggested it.

She’ll need to create a new life for herself… without Finn. Thomas recalls what it was like when Caroline died and how Hope came in and filled that role for Douglas. Hope loves him.
