Though Quinn had interacted with Carter over the years at work and outside of work (he acted as the officiant at her wedding to Deacon!), it wasn’t until she showed up at his loft one day on behalf of another woman that they connected personally. Quinn was there to advocate for Zoe, and ended up opening up to Carter about her intimacy issues with her husband and his boss, Eric. After this first conversation, Quinn was drawn back to Carter and it wasn’t long before…
Connection Turned to Chemistry
Unable to deny the incredible chemistry between them, Quinn and Carter took their meeting of the minds and hearts to another level when they gave in to passion and made love… all over his loft!
Carter and Quinn knew what they had done was wrong… but that didn’t stop them from doing it one more time for the road!
Meeting up at Carter’s loft and playing hooky from work had unforeseen consequences when Zoe showed up unannounced, used her key, and decided to check on her ex, assuming he was sick in bed. Far from ill, Carter was about to have sex with Quinn when Zoe walked into the dark bedroom. Quinn had hidden under the bed, but Zoe noticed a woman’s jacket in the loft and left heartbroken.
When Zoe noticed the ladies’ jacket from Carter’s loft in the office, Shauna covered for her bestie, Quinn, and lied. She said the jacket was hers and, much to Carter’s surprise, “confessed” that she and the COO had hooked up.
Behind Closed Doors
Carter and Quinn decided to stop seeing each other and reunited with Zoe and Eric respectively, but there was to be a wrinkle in their plans. Pars, Zoe’s sister, overheard Quinn and Shauna discussing her affair with the exec, and realized that it was Eric’s wife and not her best friend who had commited the betrayal. She filled in her sister, who left town after ending her engagement.
Quinn and Eric planned a vow renewal and Carter had little choice but to agree to officiate when his friend and boss asked him to, even though he was grappling with his feelings for his former lover. Alas, their vows were never renewed as Brooke halted the proceedings and forced a confession from Carter and Quinn.
Eric kicked Quinn to the curb after learning of her affair with Carter. The COO offered his resignation to the Forrester patriarch, but Eric refused it, sent Carter off with his wife’s now-offensive portrait, and insisted that Walton represent him in the divorce. Quinn was moved to see that Carter kept the framed tribute in his loft and the two made love after Carter filled her in on her estranged hubby’s tirade.
Picking Up Where They Left Off
Despite being upset about hurting Eric, Quinn stayed at Carter’s loft andthe two couldn’t resist one another. There were many close calls when their secret was almost discovered including during this hot sofa session when Eric contacted Carter about the divorce via video chat!
In a bizarre twist, Eric decided that he was to blame for Quinn’s affair because he had kept the knowledge from her that he was suffering from erectile dysfunction. He took his wife back, but wanted her to be fulfilled, so suggested she and Carter keep hooking up. Quinn and Carter were disturbed by the turn of events and by the romantic dinner Eric set up to propose the new arrangement.
Given that Carter had fallen in love with Quinn before she went back to Eric, and that their sexual magnetism proved to be as strong as ever, the pair gave in to their passion and resumed their intimacy at the loft — this time with Eric’s permission, however uncomfortable the situation.
Busted by Barber
Despite his father taking Quinn back, Ridge still didn’t trust her. He hired Justin to follow her and see if she was being faithful. Carter and Quinn were stunned to be busted mid-romp by Barber, but no one was more shocked than Bill’s former right-hand man when they informed him that it was all Eric’s idea!
Once the secret of their arrangement was out, it became untenable to continue seeing one another, even with Eric’s blessing. Carter was willing to give up everything to start a new life with Quinn, but she returned to her husband and the pair said a bittersweet goodbye.
Quinn was stunned to overhear a revealing conversation between Carter and Paris in which he was essentially dumping her and insisting she marry Zende. She told her ex-lover he could do better than the flighty Miss Buckingham and talk turned to their unresolved feelings. Carter and Quinn admitted they missed each other and she confided that Eric had been sleeping in the guest house.
Reunited and It Feels So Good
After discovering Eric in bed with Donna, Quinn made it to the church, er, restaurant on time and stopped Carter from marrying Paris at Il Giardino. Afterward, the lovers joyfully reunited at his loft where they had first fallen in love and rejoiced in being together again at last.
