“Eric honestly can not have you with me,” Carter tells Quinn, reminding him that the reason her husband is doing this is because he thinks he can no longer meet her needs. (Apparently Eric – and the series’ writers – think there’s only one way to have a satisfying sexual relationship. I have some books they might want to borrow …) They get closer until Wyatt comes in. Quinn’s son asks if he interrupted something, and they insist on something else. But he points out that when he walked into the office, they jumped away from each other.
Quinn tells her son that she loves her husband and that she and Eric do everything they can to create a stronger relationship. Wyatt points out that the way Eric took her back was “miraculous” after all she did. “It’s a very special kind of love,” he says. Carter points out that this is simply Eric … his first thought is always about others. After agreeing that Eric is a remarkable man, Wyatt tells his mother to do what Eric asks. (Wyatt, you have no idea what you’re suggesting your mother do … even though you might have a clue if you looked the way she and Carter looked at each other,)
At Eric’s office, Ridge asks his father to open up to him. Eric wisely says, “This is a business place” and refuses to discuss his personal life. “I think it’s been discussed quite enough in this office,” Eric insists. Of course, that does not stop his son from continuing to push the issue. “This reunion with Quinn, it wasn’t just candles and fireworks,” Ridge suggests. “Was it?” Eric continues to distract, and Ridge continues to push for answers, making it clear he is not giving a flying … fig about Quinn, he’s only worried about his father’s happiness.
Brooke walks in and has the audacity to want to talk about work in general and the new rehearsals that arrived in particular. She quickly discovers that there is a far more interesting conversation going on between the men, and she tries to get Eric to open up. He declares their constant badger annoying, but Brooke replies, “Why do you want us to let it go?” In the end, Eric says he and Quinn have been “more open to each other” than they have ever been in their lives. “Honesty is good,” Ridge agrees. “Do you know what else is good? Trust.” Ridge says that when he and Brooke found their way back together after their many challenges, “it was magical. It was amazing. We did not leave the house for several days. We did not leave the bedroom. And things happened … ”he stops himself and apparently realizes that he has entered the TMI territory.

Brooke asks if what might be going on is that the love and compassion in Eric’s marriage is gone. “It’s pretty easy to judge, from the outside and look in, right?” suggests Eric. Brooke insists they are not judging, but Eric, who clearly has a better understanding of the word than she does, shouts that they are.
Brooke suggests that it may be seen as a failure to admit that he made a mistake, but it is not. “It’s not worth sacrificing your own well-being just to keep a commitment,” she says. “What’s going on in my marriage is my business, it’s not yours,” Eric says clearly, telling his son and daughter-in-law that he wants this to be the end of the conversation. (Dude, you have set this show?)
After Eric leaves, Brooke and Ridge continue to bash Quinn (both apparently forgot at the time when Ridge stopped kissing his mother-in-law after seeing her softer side). “I just do not understand,” Brooke admits, listing Eric’s positive qualities and Quinn’s total lack of them. “Your father is a great man,” she sighs. “His ability to love is extraordinary. It is fearless and boundless. Quinn does not deserve him. ”

At the beach house, a finless shirt without a shirt gets its wife on duty, and they begin to figure it out. After being reminded of how fun the day has been — including Liam and Finn’s “father-joke contest” —Steffy admits she’s never been happier, and that’s because of her hunky husband. They smoke… just as Paris enters. “We have company!” shouts Steffy, pushing Finn away with a laugh. Paris apologizes for interrupting and says she will go up to her room. (Again, why does she not live in the guesthouse, especially now that Finn and Steffy have been reunited?)
The subject soon turns to Sheila and makes Steffy ask that if Paris sees or hears anything, she tells it immediately. “It’s really important that she stays out of our lives, forever this time,” says Finn’s wife.
In the design office, Eric finds a distracted Quinn fiddling with a piece of jewelry. They end up talking about their wedding day and how the rest of the family even refused to show up. “They had no idea how far I would go to give you what you want,” he reflects. “I promised that I would give you happiness and joy and fulfillment in your life. I still can, ”he says, handing her an envelope of“ sensitive material ”for Carter. Quinn says the lawyer went home from the day, but Eric is fully aware of it. “Take it to him,” he says meaningfully. “See you at home.”

Later, when Eric is drinking alone and looking at Quinn’s portrait, Carter is in his apartment and flashes back to Eric, saying that while his sex life is over, Quinn does not have to be. Carter then remembers having kissed Quinn, loved her and the moment they declared their love for each other. There is a knock on the door, and if you need to know who is standing on the other side when he opens it, you have not paid attention …
Next on The bold and the beautiful: Wait until you see what Paris is thinking! from Eric.
Since Sheila has been causing problems for years, it’s just one reason someone sooner or later makes her pay … or at least try. Why? Well, we’ve gathered a few suspects …
