Later, Sapphire is diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, but Lily is upset when Sapphire says she wants to leave. Lily begs her to reconsider but Sapphire’s mind is made up so Lily contacts the social worker, who says that Sapphire will have to stay a little while longer before she can be moved.

On leaving the hospital, Lily and Sapphire stop by the rehearsal hall, where they find the tap dance troupe in disarray. But with Lily’s help they pass the audition and everyone is impressed, particularly Sapphire.
