On the Forrester jet, Finn, Steffy and Taylor laugh as Finn says the kids are asleep and Ridge is pinned under them, also asleep. As Steffy and Finn kiss, Taylor enthuses that she is so happy — this is a milestone for their family! As the flight continues, Taylor relives the kiss with Ridge in her mind and smiles. Steffy notices and questions her.
At Brooke’s place, she’s eager to see Ridge and gushes to Hope that he must be overjoyed. Talk turns to Sheila still being out there, and Brooke vows not to let that consume her. Hope asks if Ridge ever said anything about the selfie she posted. “It shouldn’t be a big deal.” Brooke only spoke to him once, but he was pre-occupied and rushed. Hope apologizes again as Deacon walks in and asks, “Sorry about what?” Brooke gawps, “Seriously?!” He’s just walked into her house again. Deacon saucily responds that he heard through the grapevine (he points at Hope) Ridge was on a plane and took the opportunity to come and see his two favorite ladies.
At Carter’s place, he and Quinn are in bed, grinning from ear-to-ear. She breathes, “Ah, this is the life,” and wants to make a pact. He’s in, no matter what it is. Quinn thinks they need to make it a tradition to play hooky from work, at least once a month, and spend the day in bed. “We need to celebrate us.” They kiss. Carter tells Quinn how amazing she looks in his bed. She purrs that he looks pretty amazing himself. Carter tried to give up on her, but it wasn’t possible. Quinn’s so proud she gets to love him.
Carter recaps that Quinn was committed to Eric, and he tried to move on. “I still can’t believe you’re here.” Quinn assures him she’s not going anywhere. Talk turns to Ridge — Carter spoke to him last night and he’s never heard his friend sound happier. Quinn doesn’t want Ridge to talk in bed and can think of another way to pass the time. They start making love.
At Brooke’s place, Deacon declares that he feels grounded in something good when he’s with Hope and Brooke — he’d never come around when Ridge was there. Brooke feels like she’s sneaking around behind her husband’s back and wonders if she’s over-reacting. Hope thinks she may be paranoid because of the selfie. Deacon asks why she took it down and guesses Brooke was afraid of hurting Ridge’s delicate sensibilities. Brooke wants to show her husband that she’s dedicated to him, and when he comes home, Deacon can’t be there. Deacon agrees.
On the Forrester jet, Steffy tells Finn they’re going to celebrate him every day once they’re home. Taylor goes over the miracle they experienced after landing in Monaco. Finn goes to wake up Ridge and the kids and Steffy turns to her mother. “You seem distracted by something other than Finn and me.” Taylor insists she’s only thinking of Finn being alive. “It’s the best feeling in the world.” They embrace.
At Carter’s place, Quinn is so happy being in his arms. They go over how long they hid their feelings from everyone, including themselves and each other. Quinn’s glad she got to that crazy wedding in time to save him from himself. They start making out again.
At Forrester Creations, Hope asks Deacon if he’s okay — he seems a little sad. He shrugs, “It shows, huh?” Hope knows how he feels about her mom and that it hurts to be rejected. Deacon cares about Brooke and at the end of the day, just wants her to be happy. That said, he doubts she’s ever going to find true happiness with Ridge. Hope realizes that he’ll never be good enough for her mom in Deacon’s eyes. Deacon questions, “If there aren’t any residual feelings for Taylor, then why hasn’t he fully recommitted to your mom?”
Brooke’s surprised when Ridge arrives at home with Taylor in tow. She asks how Monaco was and Ridge enthuses, “It was incredible.” Taylor cringes a little when he walks over and plants a kiss on Brooke, who says she can only imagine how they’re feeling right now. Taylor and Ridge go over how amazing it was when Finn showed up in Monaco — it was great to see Steffy smile again. Brooke’s glad they’re back home, especially Ridge. “I missed you so much.” They kiss and embrace and Taylor and Ridge lock eyes.
Finn is overcome with emotion as he, Steffy and the kids walk through the door of the cliff house. So many times, he imagined being back there with them… it seemed distant sometimes. Steffy assures he’s back where he belongs. Finn spots a drawing of them as a family and Kelly says she drew it to make him come home. They hug. “I missed you, Finn.” Finn missed her too. Steffy, holding Hayes, welcomes her husband home. Steffy tells her husband how sad the house was when he was gone. But he’s here now — it’s a miracle. Finn pictured himself there with them to get through his ordeal. They express their love and kiss until Kelly calls, “Mom!” Finn says, “Let me,” and heads to the bedroom, where he emerges with both kids and hands the baby over to Steffy, proceeding to tickle a delighted Kelly.
