Eric confirms she came to him for a job and urged him to take the CEO seat back. They all protest that she has an agenda. Ridge and Steffy won’t allow him to continue seeing her. Eric shouts that he’s not a child, he’s the CEO, and won’t be judged in that office. He storms out. The family members discuss how to handle the situation. In the corridor, Steffy and Pam wonder if he went to see Quinn. Steffy enters another office, where Liam was flashing to their kiss. He came to see if she was okay. Debate ensues about whether Wyatt can protect her from Quinn. Liam says she deserves better. They embrace. Back in the boardroom, Rick, Thomas, and Ridge agree they can’t let Quinn anywhere near Eric or the company.
