Quinn appears to agonize but kisses Carter when he moves in close. Quinn gasps her approval and can’t deny she’s missed Carter. “This is torture, but I love you.” Carter slowly undoes her dress and slides it off her shoulders. She removes his shirt and he lowers her onto the sofa to make love.

At the Forrester mansion, Eric’s mulling over asking his wife to have sex with her ex-lover when Katie comes to the door. She’s taken aback to hear she’s not interrupting him and Quinn because his wife is out. Katie doesn’t get how he allowed his wife to come back into the house and his life. Eric insists it works for them. The brunette worries that he’s too forgiving and doesn’t want to see him taken advantage of. He reassures her, but Katie asks where the hell Quinn is and why he’s there alone. She questions if she’s on a girls’ night out given she doesn’t have friends. Eric halts the line of speculation and tells Katie he gives him too much credit. Katie has never seen him like this — it makes her worry that Quinn has broken him down and made him believe he’s not good enough for her. “She married well above herself.” Eric says it’s not her making him feel that way and ruminates that marriage is complicated.
