Taken aback, Donna asks, “Not even your wife?” She then decides that was a stupid question… of course Quinn will miss him, just as she always did when Eric was away during their marriage.

He’s not sure how his current wife would feel about it. Donna muses over him referring to Quinn as his ‘current’ wife and wonders if she should read into it.

Quinn’s just glad no one has picked up on their troubles and complains Brooke and Ridge would like nothing better than to see her gone.

Quinn worries she’s lost Eric, but Carter encourages her to work hard to rebuild his trust. Quinn thanks him for listening and smiles as she tells him he’s good at everything.
