Episode #8517 ~ Zoe's plan to surprise Carter backfires in a shocking way.

Provided By Suzanne

Zoe: Carter?

Zoe: Hey, it's me. Are you--you in there? Carter?

[ Gasps ] Oh, my god.

Eric: Well, I couldn't be happier the way this line is coming together.

Ridge: It turns out thomas and zende are very good collaborators. Look at this.

Brooke: Wow. Hope's been writing about the quality of their work, and deservedly so.

Eric: She's got a lot to be happy about it, doesn't she? He had to work at her home as well. I'm actually very glad that she and liam are back together.

Brooke: Yeah. Me too. You know, I would have supported her no matter what. But I am happy that she forgave liam.

Eric: As long as they're happy together, that's all that matters.

Brooke: Yeah. That's what we want for you, eric, your happiness.

Ridge: Where are you going with this, really?

Brooke: That's true, isn't it?

Ridge: You know, just...

Eric: No. No. I--I--I think that she's concerned that as long as I'm married to quinn, it's not really possible that I'd be happy. That's what you meant, isn't it?

Brooke: [ Chuckles ] Uh...

Brooke: I don't wanna overstep.

Eric: Since when?

Brooke: But I will if I have to. Eric, you said that you wanna make an effort in your marriage, right? Well, is that how you really feel or is it more of an obligation? Look, I don't wanna make you feel uncomfortable or put you on the spot.

Ridge: Brooke, we all know how you feel about dad, but maybe this has to do with the issues that you have with quinn.

Eric: No, no, no. I understand that she has issues. I really do. She has every right to, given the things that quinn has done in the past.

Brooke: Including the very recent past.

Eric: Yes. Well, that's exactly why my guard is up. I want our marriage to work. I really do. And I haven't been doing a very good job of letting quinn know that. I have to do better.

Ridge: Dad, don't be so hard on yourself. It takes time to win trust back.

Brooke: Exactly. And if quinn's not understanding of that...

Eric: No, she is. She's trying. She's-- she's trying. She's--she's putting everything out there. She really is. It's just-- she wants intimacy, and I haven't been giving it to her, and it's-- it's something that she misses very, very much.

Carter: Zoe, what are you doing here?

Zoe: Well, I came to surprise you. I'm sorry. I didn't think that, um-- is something wrong? Are you-- are you not feeling well?

Carter: Um...

Zoe: Is that why you're in bed? I mean...

Carter: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You're right.

Zoe: Oh, okay. Good. Good. Now, I'm--I'm--I'm really glad that I, um, uh, came here. Uh, do you need anything? Maybe like some tea or some chicken noodle soup?

Carter: [ Chuckles ]

Zoe: I mean, we both know I'm not the best cook but I sure do know how to order in. I mean, let's be honest, the best thing to have when you're sick is-- is A...

Zoe: Oh, my god. Is there another woman in here?

Quinn: Eric, are you sure?

Eric: Do you like it?

Quinn: Like it? Uh, I--I love it. I love you.

Eric: I love you, mrs. Forrester.

Quinn: [ Chuckles ]

Eric: [ Sighs ] So I should just give up? Is that what the two of you are saying? And admit that I was wrong about quinn? Is this how you both feel?

Ridge: Dad, I think you know that neither one of us would ever say that. That's not true. Brooke would definitely say that. But the point is, it's up to you. This is your decision. It has nothing to do with us, right? Wife?

Brooke: Right.

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: But I also know how dissolution eric's been. You forgave her. You let her move back in the house. You wanted to work on your marriage. And that's admirable. But when somebody lied and manipulated as much as quinn has...

Eric: Brooke, I honestly thought that was over. I did. It was positive. We were living a good life together. We really were. The-- the old quinn wasn't even there. Not the--the quinn that you all-- you all forbade me to marry in the beginning.

Brooke: That's because she had you, eric. She had everything she thought she wanted. But then she got bored, and her best friend came in town, and she wanted to have some fun. And she did everything she possibly could to undermine my marriage with ridge.

Eric: Yeah. And to hurt you. And that--that hurt me. She knew it would. She knew how much you meant to me.

Ridge: Hey, dad, if that's how you felt then why did you let-- let her back in the house? Why did you forgive her?

Eric: I don't know, ridge. I thought, uh-- I thought it was time. I really did. Something's wrong, and I need to make it better. I need to-- I need to make our marriage what it should be.

Brooke: Or... maybe you need to listen to what your gut is trying to tell you. Eric, something is holding you back. You've gotta listen to it. It's your intuition, your instincts telling you that quinn cannot be trusted.

Eric: [ Sighs ]

Zoe: I--I can't believe this.

Carter: Zoe, look, we--we-- we can--we can talk.

Zoe: No, no, no. I mean, do--do I--I know her? I mean--oh, god, I do, don't I?

Carter: Look, we can talk downstairs, okay? Let me just-- let me just put on something.

Zoe: Why? Why downstairs? Is it because she's here? Oh, my god. She is he, isn't she?

Carter: Zoe, please. Seriously, if I could...

Zoe: Now, who does that? Seriously? Uh, what kind of woman moves in on a man who just called off his engagement?

Carter: Hey. Hey. Hey. Let's go downstairs.

Zoe: Carter, I was so hopeful. I thought you would actually change your mind. I thought you would actually give me another chance. Give us another chance. I thought what we had meant something to you. And if you've already moved on, then-- and, look, I realize that I might not even have the right to say this after hurting you, and I know we're not even engaged, but to know that you've already slept with another woman so soon, that breaks my heart, carter.

 Brooke: Well, it's gotta count for something. You're closing yourself off from quinn and you're holding back for a reason. Eric, I'm only saying this out of concern. I want what's best for you.

Eric: I appreciate that, brooke.

Ridge: But you know what, sometimes supporting people that we're concerned about means letting them make their own decision, and I think my dad is very capable. What do you think?

Brooke: Yes. You're right, ridge. Of course. I will respect whatever choice you make. And if you wanna stay married to quinn, then that's entirely up to you, as long as you're happy and thriving.

Eric: I need to give quinn a fair chance. I need to give that to her. I--I need that. I need to give myself that. I'm--I'm married to a beautiful, vibrant woman. She has needs. And I'm her husband, and I should be the one to fulfill those needs for her.

Zoe: I came here because I wanted our relationship back. I mean, I--I thought that, that's what you wanted too. Carter, I thought we had something that you couldn't just walk away from? I mean, I--I know that I can'T. I mean, that's why I've been fighting so hard. And I've just been fighting and you've been what? Like updating your profiles in the latest dating app?

Carter: You know that's not true.

Zoe: Well, do I? Carter, you invited someone into your bed. So, how many others?

Carter: It's not like that, zoe. Not at all.

Zoe: If that's true then is she just special? Do you love her?

Carter: No. No.

Zoe: Did you ever love me?

Carter: I never stopped. I hate that I'm hurting you like this. I--I never expected you to walk in, and--

Zoe: Of course not. Neither did I. But now here I am just standing here horrified while your other woman she just hides away probably laughing at me. Do you know how beyond humiliating that is for me?

Carter: I'm sorry.

Zoe: Just... save it, carter, okay, because maybe this is what needed to happen. I need to see it with my own eyes. To see how easy it is for you to move on. I mean, do you care about me carter? Okay.

Carter: Zoe...

Zoe: Don't!

[ Sobbing ] Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

Eric: I'm not gonna give up on quinn. And certainly not in the vows I made to her. And then she's kept her vows to me.

Brooke: If you don't consider being honest and truthful a part of your vows.

Eric: You know-- you know what I mean.

Brooke: Okay. Well, if quinn lets you down again and I fear she may. Ridge and I will be here for you.

Eric: Thank you, brooke.

Brooke: You're welcome.

Eric: Thank you, ridge. But I really don't think anything is gonna happen. I mean she was genuinely remorseful about-- about everything that she did. And almost losing me was, uh, a wake-up call for her. She's not gonna do anything else to jeopardize our marriage.

Zoe: Sorry, I--I wasn't thinking. I should ask.

Ridge: Zoe, zoe, zoe, what's wrong?

Brooke: What happened? I thought you went to carter'S.

Zoe: Yeah, I did. It was really embarrassing.

Ridge: Embarrassing. What do you mean?

Zoe: It was awful. I couldn't even believe what I...

Eric: Believe, believe what?

Ridge: Zoe? What are you talking about?

Zoe: Carter, he--he wasn't alone. He was in bed with another woman.

Carter: Zoe was mortified.

Quinn: It was-- it was terrible to hear all that pain in her voice.

Carter: Yeah, a pain I caused. You didn't see it, but...

Quinn: I can only imagine, carter. I'm so sorry. But maybe it's what you needed.

Carter: What?

Quinn: Zoe said it herself. I mean, maybe she needed to see with her own eyes that you moved on but you haven'T. You haven't moved on. You could've told her up there that it was over that--that what happens in your bedroom is none of her business. But you didn'T. You were so... you were so caring with her.

Carter: Of course I was caring. Uh, because I--

Quinn: Because you still wanna have a life with her. I wanna have a life with eric. We both knew that this was going nowhere.

Carter: No, we... we just needed each other. We--we were lonely, and we--we needed someone.

Quinn: But it's no excuse. Yeah, I was feeling unwanted by my husband. But I shouldn't have-- I mean, I am a married woman. Oh god, what was I thinking?

Carter: What was I thinking? I mean, I respect eric so much. He's embraced me over the years. He treats me like family. I shouldn't let this happen even once let alone and now zoe knows.

Quinn: No, zoe doesn't know. She does not know that it was me.

Carter: Damage is done. She was so hurt, quinn. I mean...

Quinn: She was--she was-- yes, but so were you. And if you go and tell her that then she's gonna understand. Remember what this was all about. Why this all started. I was coming here to get you to forgive her so that the two of you could reconcile. And that can still happen because she doesn't know it was me. Nobody knows anything except for shauna. And I am telling you she is never going to say this to anyone. Carter, we had this... this brief moment in time that we both really needed. We need to be thankful for the connection that we made. We need to know that it was in the past.

[ Sighs ] That it can never happen again.

Carter: Ever.

Quinn: I can be back with eric. And you could be with zoe if that's what you choose, and I really-- oh, god, I really hope that you choose that. But I want my marriage to work. No one could ever know about this. Yes, eric and I we're having-- we're having problems right now, but we can work through it. I can get him. I can get him to trust me again but not if he knows about us. This secret we need to take it to our graves. No one else can ever know.
