Amber texts Caroline to say she and Rick are going to preview some of their first line and would like her objective eye.

She is aghast at Rick’s feminine side and politely brushes him off. Liam tells Hope that he loves her and that will never change. She’s happy but she wants the entire truth. He tells her that stress is part of every day life and she can’t go popping a pill every time something bad happens. It concerns him that instead of turning to him that she always turns to the pills. Maybe she needs help in giving them up. She assures him that she does not need re-hab or drug counseling. The press was just the catalyst. She promises she will never take another pill or keep things from him again. Steffy confides to Taylor and brother Thomas that she thinks even though she gave Liam the annulment papers that he will come back to her. She also fills Ridge in more with what happened in Aspen.

She is now going to plan the most extravagant wedding in southern Italy. She warns him not to get used to living alone as she will be back very soon. They kiss goodbye. Liam looks devastated.
