After their symposium in San Francisco, Quinn has worked out that Ridge is responsible for the mix up with the hotel rooms. The accusations fly. Ridge thinks she was just about to succumb to his charms. But Quinn maintains there is no way she would betray Eric.
While downing a straight tequila, Quinn tells Ridge he is so charming but he got caught. There is now way he is going to be able to charm his way out of this one once Eric learns what Ridge has been scheming.
Katie Keeps Eric Company
Wyatt is in the mood to party after Quinn and Ridge’s success at the symposium. Since they are both “bachelors” Wyatt wants Eric to join him, but Eric reminds Wyatt that neither of them are bachelors.
Katie arrives and learns about Quinn and Ridge’s business trip. She asks about the portrait of Steffy. Eric explains it was for when Steffy lived in the mansion with her family. Katie is surprised and thinks he means Liam, but has a warning for Eric and Wyatt when she learns that Eric tried to get Steffy to move back into the mansion with Wyatt. She tells them not to pressure Steffy. Especially since Steffy and Wyatt wouldn’t have married if Quinn hadn’t kidnapped Liam. Wyatt can’t deny the truth of it, but reminds Katie that his and Steffy’s feelings for each other were real.
Meanwhile, at Thomas loft, where Steffy has moved instead of the mansion in support her grandfather’s wish that she not live with Liam until her divorce is final, Liam tries to convince Steffy to come back to the Cliff house – their home – with him. Steffy asks Liam to respect her decision. She will come home when her divorce is final. Liam quips that Wyatt seems to keep coming between them, not even her tattoo has gone. He will just have to get her a ring to cover it, Liam decides.
In San Francisco, Quinn tells Ridge he is very charming but he isn’t going to charm his way out of this one. They spar over old ground; Ridge isn’t a Forrester, strictly Thorne is, but can’t get a look in with Ridge around. Ridge takes what he wants and is a womanizer. Ridge admits his plan to discredit Quinn in Eric’s eyes by taking a compromising photo of them. Ridge is no saint and shouldn’t sit in judgement of her. Quinn doesn’t believe he thought she would fall into bed with him. She tells him he can go to hell, if hell with have him. Quinn throws him out.
