In Carter’s bedroom, he and Quinn gawp at Justin bursting in. He informs them it doesn’t matter how he got in here; they’re caught! Justin admires the place and chuckles about Carter still having sex with the boss’ wife. He knows what he walked in on, and soon Eric will too. Carter and Quinn want to know what he’s doing there and who he’s working for. Justin lets them know it’s not Bill; he’s working for someone else. After a few more minutes, he admits it’s Ridge. Quinn agonizes. “You can’t tell anyone about this, but you especially can’t tell Ridge!” She tries to explain to Justin that they have an understanding. Justin feels terrible for Eric; he hears he’s a sweet man.

Quinn blurts, “Eric knows about me and Carter. Eric gave us permission!” Justin can’t believe that. “Eric doesn’t roll like that.” They insist it’s true. Justin ask for one reason Eric would allow his wife to sleep with another guy. Quinn sighs and explains that Eric has E.D. and couldn’t be intimate with her in the bedroom. He’s a selfless man who didn’t want her to give up sex because he couldn’t fulfill her anymore. “We fought it! But he kept pushing and pushing!” Carter backs her up, “Quinn’s not lying.” Quinn insists that Eric got it in his head that this was the only way to save their marriage. “If you go and tell anybody else, if you tell Ridge, you’re going to embarrass and humiliate him!” She implores him not to report back to Ridge. “Do the right thing and keep Eric’s secret!”

At Forrester Creations, Ridge tells Katie he’s certain Quinn is up to something; he’s just not sure what it is. Katie is taken aback to hear he has someone following her and asks where she found him. Ridge says he’s a former employee of Spencer Publications. Katie gapes, “Justin?!” Ridge shrugs that he owed him a favor and he’s a great lawyer. Katie chides that he’s not exactly using him for his legal services. They circle back to what’s going on with Eric, who isn’t opening up to them. Ridge doesn’t want his heart broken.
