At the Forrester mansion, Ridge and Eric discuss Quinn and Shauna’s deception. Eric thinks Shauna was the pawn. Quinn enters. She needed to see Eric and needed to be home. Eric feels there’s nothing left to say. Quinn’s seeking healing, but Ridge barks that may not be what his father’s after. Quinn wants to plead her case to Ridge as well. It doesn’t go well as she claims she was trying to help and didn’t think it would take Brooke to move on. Ridge informs her she won’t get his or Brooke’s forgiveness and adds Brooke wants Eric to leave her. Ridge storms out. Quinn appeals to Eric, “You still want me to be your wife, don’t you?” Eric rants — how many times can he have the rug yanked out from under him for believing she’s changed? Quinn pleads for him to let her come home. They bicker over Brooke and Quinn starts in on Shauna being better for Ridge. Eric wants to focus on them, and where they’ll go from here. Quinn insists they can get through this. Suddenly, Shauna comes down the stairs. Stunned, Quinn asks what she’s doing there.

As he talks about things being different at home now, Finn looks concerned. Later, Ridge arrives in time to hear Steffy and Finn discussing Thomas. They fill him in. Ridge would hate to think Thomas is lying and isn’t over Hope at all.

At home, Thomas paces and watches the doll suspiciously before informing her she’s going back. He grabs one leg and puts her back in the box, but she begins to cackle and her eyes turn red.
