"I was very confused.", Aerosmith's concert put an end to the suspects. Liv's half-sister Mia (the second daughter of Steven Tyler), whom Liv never saw before, was in that concert too. When Liv saw that she looked remarkably like her, she had no doubt - Steven Tyler's daugher is her sister - which means that the man who's performing on stage is her father. Later that evening, Liv's mom told her the truth: "I turned to my mom and said, 'He's my father, isn't he ?', and we went out under a tree and talked and cried for two hours."
