Steffy: It feels so good being safe in your arms. Life has just been so crazy lately.

Finn: Hm. Yeah. Yeah, it has. But tonight, we’re only acknowledging the good stuff. All right? Like how lucky I am to be married to the most beautiful, amazing woman on the planet.

Steffy: No, I am the lucky one. My husband can actually work miracles. No, seriously, you brought my grandfather back from the brink of death. Not only brilliant, but you’re kind and you’re funny, and you’re incredibly sexy. I love you more than I can say.

R.J.: You look good, Granddad.

Luna: Yeah, you got your color back and that twinkle in your eye.

Eric: Then tell the doctor, I want to get out of here.

R.J.: Are you– you going a little stir crazy?

Eric: Okay. Yeah. Yeah. As much as I appreciate you visiting me, and I do, I wanna go home, I wanna be in my own bed. I want to see Donna. I want to get back to this– this life I have.

R.J.: You will. But, you know, until then, there’s no place I’d rather be than right here in this room. By your side.

Eric: As long as Luna is by yours.

Poppy: Luna. Are you here? Hello, Bill.

Bill: I miss you.

Poppy: Now, how is that even possible? We’ve only had one date.

Bill: That’s the problem. We need to rectify that. It’s only one. You available tonight?

Poppy: Well, actually, I’m hoping to spend some time with Luna.

Bill: I can certainly understand why. She is just a beautiful, accomplished, young woman. Any parent would be proud.

Bill: How about tomorrow? We could, uh, do Il Giordino again. You can choose a meal that you couldn’t decide on last time.

Poppy: I’d like that.

Bill: Then, it’s a date.

Poppy: I’ll see you tomorrow, Bill.

Li: What are you doing here, Penelope?

Wyatt: Hey, Dad. There you are.

Bill: Everything okay?

Wyatt: Uh, yeah. Yeah. No, I just, I– I wanted to uh– I wanted to I wanted to talk to you about something.

Bill: Well, here I am. What’s going on?

Wyatt: I don’t know. I, uh, I kind of feel like I need a change. Maybe move out of here, maybe– maybe even L.A.

Poppy: Like it or not, this is where my daughter works. I was looking for Luna.

Li: Such a convenient excuse, isn’t it? And no, I don’t like it. None of it. I especially object to Luna’s involvement with RJ, who just happens to be Steffy’s brother.

Eric: I can picture it now. Sitting on the patio, looking at the view, drinking my coffee looking at the view. Drinking a martini, looking at the view.

R.J.: That reminds me, we gotta get you fully stocked. for when you get back, right?

Eric: That’s my boy.

R.J.: Who is it?

Luna: oh, I, um, I have to get back to the office.

R.J.: Come on. Let’s go.

Luna: No, no, no. Stay. I’ll just call you when I’m about to leave.

R.J.: Are you sure?

Luna: Yeah, positive. We all have important things to do.

R.J.: We sure do.

Eric: I’m so glad you two found each other.

R.J.: So are we. There’s a lot to be thankful for in this room, but especially you, Granddad. You know, you– you’re like a living medical miracle now. On top of everything else that you are, sir. I mean– I mean, none of us are gonna be able to thank Finn enough for– for saving your life.

Steffy: I was so scared when I thought Granddad was dying. Like I– I couldn’t imagine my life or this world without him. And then when I wasn’t able to say anything, it was just– it was really awful. But then it all turned around. I mean, you gave us the most profound gift.

Finn: And speaking of… I have some good news about Eric.

Wyatt: If I leave town, is that something that you can get behind?

Bill: Well, I’m not happy about it. I like having my sons close. But if it’s something you feel you need to do for yourself, then who am I to stand in your way.

Wyatt: Look, you’ve been extremely generous for letting me live here when Taylor moved out and everything.

Bill: Don’t be ridiculous. I just– I’m just glad it worked out for you.

Wyatt: Thanks. I’ve made a lot of good memories here. It couldn’t be a– Couldn’t have been a better place to call home And just so you know, I– I did, I– I found a renter. You know, while you’re trying to figure out what you want to do with the place and I think it’s– I think they’re– they’re a good candidate. I think you’ll– you’ll approve.

Bill: Thank you. That saves me a call to Cindy. You know, the head of our– our real estate team. Don’t have to worry about leasing it out.

Wyatt: But enough about me and my evolving situation, what about you? Liam tells me about this new woman in your life.

Bill: Ah, yes. The beautiful, mysterious Poppy.

Poppy: Luna came here to start the career she’s wanted ever since she was a little girl.

Li: She set her eyes on RJ the second she walked in that door. Why? I guess that old saying has merit. Like mother, like daughter.

Poppy: Are you done?

Li: Actually, no. I heard you on the phone before I was about to come in. It was obvious you were talking to a man. I even knew before I heard you call him Bill. Another lonely, wealthy suitor. Or should I say sugar daddy?

R.J.: So, is– is everyone still treating you well here?

Eric: Yes.

R.J.: Yeah?

Eric: Finn, mostly. He’s a wonderful doctor and he’s a terrific guy, you know. But I gotta tell you something. If I never see him again in a hospital setting, it’ll be too soon.

is impressed by Eric’s progress. I mean, it’s remarkable how far he’s come so quickly.

Steffy: Yeah. It’s hard to believe that he technically died in recovery.

Finn: Yeah, but he came back strong. So much so that if all goes well, and I have no reason to believe it won’t, Eric’s going home.

Steffy: Soon?

Finn: Tomorrow.

Steffy: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. He’s gonna be released? He’s going home? Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Wyatt: So, tell me about this new woman in your life. >>

Bill: Well, I wouldn’t say that she is in my life quite yet, but I am working on it.

Wyatt: Well, look at you all smitten. Wow. I mean, Liam said that you guys met in what? In the Bay area? Some–

Bill: Golden Gate Music Festival.

Wyatt: I’m sorry, what? The universe just– just tilted a little bit. What were you doing at a music festival?

Bill: What are you talking about? You know, your dad gets down.

Wyatt: Don’t do that at all.

Bill: I love music. You know that.

Wyatt: I just can’t picture Bill Spencer, uh, slumming it for three days in a tent while eating mystery meat out of a commune truck.

Bill: Number one, I had a set up like a Bedouin king. But look, that’s beside the point. Do you want to hear about Poppy or not?

Wyatt: Yes, please share.

Bill: I was walking back to the camp and uh, something caught my eye. And it was just this magnificent creature. I mean, she was dancing in a way that I– I had never seen. She was just so free and– and totally uninhibited. But when the music stopped, she locked in on– on me. It was powerful, magnetic. And it just led to this incredible evening together.

Wyatt: It sounds like this Poppy made quite the impression on you.

Bill: She did. I mean, as the saying goes, right? We made beautiful music together. In fact, I– I think you could say that we created magic.

Poppy: I really don’t appreciate this judgmental attitude. You have made this villain version of me. This calculating, well, gold digger now, I guess, who only thinks of herself.

Li: That sounds about right. Especially when it comes to men. It’s always the same pattern. He has to be strong, handsome, but his number one qualification, he has to have money. Lots of it. So you can keep selling your hippie clothes at festivals instead of getting a real job. That is your current plan. To hook up with some poor, unsuspecting sucker here in Los Angeles, so you can lay down your roots. I’m warning you, Penelope, don’t try it.

Poppy: You can’t tell me where to live.

Li: I won’t stop, Penelope. I don’t want you here, or Luna. And I won’t rest until you are both gone.

Luna: Um, Was that Aunt Li until you are both gone.

Luna: Um, Was that Aunt Li I just saw leaving?

Poppy: Yeah, I’m afraid so.

Luna: Hey, she ripped into you again, didn’t she?

Poppy: Yeah. And with a new angle this time. Your aunt called me a gold digger.

Eric: I want to go home.

R.J.: I know. Granddad, I– I– I know– I know you do, okay? I know, you’re frustrated, but you– you’ve come so far. All right? So just be patient just a little bit longer, okay?

Eric: Face it. Patience is overrated.

Finn: Hey.

R.J.: Hey, doctor. Your, um, your patient’s getting a little restless, he wants to see the world again.

Finn: Yeah, well, we want that for you too, Eric.

Eric: Yeah, yeah, I know. But we haven’t made quite enough progress as we wanted and we still have a couple of bars to clear before we’re done, so I get it.

Finn: Well, contrary to what you’re expecting, we came in here to tell you that if all goes well, you’ll be going home tomorrow.

R.J.: You’re ready.

Wyatt: I mean, you must have been blown away with seeing Poppy after all those years.

Bill: Oh, I’m– I’m just sitting there in Il Giardino and in walks this apparition from the past and I mean, at first, you know, it just didn’t quite register.

Wyatt: Well, did she recognize you?

Bill: Everybody recognizes me. But look, if she didn’t recognize me, she did a very good job of– of hiding it. Now, she didn’t blow me off and then finally, it hit me. Pretty crazy. Huh?

Wyatt: Maybe not. What do you mean?

Wyatt: Well, I mean, you basically turned yourself inside out to try and get Katie back, and for the first time ever, nothing you did worked.

Bill: Yeah. Thanks for the reminder.

Wyatt: I’m just saying, maybe things didn’t work out with Katie because Poppy is supposed to be a part of your future.

Bill: Well, stranger things have happened, right?

Wyatt: I mean, that would be amazing, right? If Poppy, this– this woman from your past just suddenly showed up with the most surprising, unexpected gift.

Luna: Aunt Li goes way too far.

Poppy: Yeah. Try telling her that. Lua: I mean, seriously, where does she get off? I mean, calling you a gold digger?

Poppy: I have dated men with money, okay? But it’s not the way your Aunt Li makes it sound. That, you know, there was no targeting.

Luna: I know.

Poppy: I just went where my heart led me.

Luna: What?

Poppy: Just, can you imagine her reaction if she knew it led me to Bill Spencer years ago?

Luna: Oh, and that he’s interested in you again? He’s one of the richest men in Los Angeles. I mean her head would explode.

Poppy: Well, you don’t know the half of it.

Luna: So, where do things stand? With you and Bill, I mean?

Poppy: I’m seeing him again tomorrow.

Luna: Awesome. You must be so excited.

Poppy: Well, we are just getting reacquainted.

Luna: But that could lead to finding out that you’re still into each other, maybe more than before.

Poppy: Okay, you are getting way ahead of yourself, sweetheart.

Luna: We’ll see. But in the meantime I approve. I like Bill. Um, I have since the moment I met him. I like having him around.

Eric: This is really happening?

R.J.: He’s– he’s gonna get released like tomorrow?

Steffy: It is the best news.

Finn: Look, I’m not saying it’s definite, but as long as you don’t have any setbacks tonight. Um, yeah, you’re out of here.

Eric: I– I can’t– I can’t tell you what that means to me. Yeah.

Finn: I– I– I think I understand.

Steffy: Yeah, we all do. And you made it. You fought your way back to us and I know it seemed impossible, but… you’re coming home.

Eric: Well, I had a lot of help. Finn. You saved my life.

Steffy: Granddad, it was you. If you didn’t fight, it would be a very different outcome right now.

Eric: Yeah.

Finn: You had an incredibly difficult procedure and it’s been emotional and– and difficult. And it’s gonna continue to– to not be easy, but–

Eric: I can do it. I– I didn’t think I could get this far. I didn’t think I had the stamina or the strength, but I– I had all of you cheering me on, yeah. I’m gonna go home, I’m gonna feel the sun on my face. And the, uh, the breeze coming up from the ocean, from the coast, on my face. Yeah. And hearing the good grandkids laughing around the pool and seeing that– that big old, wonderful house. And my big old, wonderful family around me. I’m– I’m so blessed. I love you so much. Tomorrow.

R.J.: It’s tomorrow. Going home tomorrow.

Eric: Yeah, going home tomorrow.
