‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ fans curious about Eric Forrester and Quinn Fuller’s absence

Eric and Quinn have been part of The Bold and the Beautiful‘s forefront storytelling since their 2016 marriage. Like other couples, the two had their issues. One of their biggest challenges occurred last year with Eric’s erectile dysfunction and Quinn’s affair with Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor).

The couple stayed together despite their problems, and it appears everything’s fine in the Forrester mansion. However, Eric and Quinn’s absence hasn’t gone unnoticed; fans on Reddit discussed the couple’s abrupt dropped storyline. “I choose to believe that Eric is back in working order, and he and Quinn are enjoying each other’s company,” wrote one user.

Another commenter chimed in with their desire to see the character back, “I actually kind of liked some of those Eric, Quinn, and Carter scenes.”

The couple looked like they were headed for another split

Eric and Quinn’s marriage was strained because of his erectile dysfunction. With Eric unable to be intimate with Quinn, he asked Carter to step in. The trio managed to keep their arrangement quiet until Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) uncovered their secret.

After their secret was revealed, Quinn broke up with Carter and decided to stay with Eric. However, the couple’s marriage received more interference from Eric’s ex-wife Donna Logan (Jennifer Gareis). Donna confessed she was still in love with Eric, and during a sensual encounter, he was cured of his condition.

Quinn was furious after learning of Eric and Donna’s interaction and issued an ultimatum to her husband. Eric gave into Quinn’s demand by firing Donna and cutting off contact with her. With Carter and Donna out of the picture, the couple could work on repairing their marriage.

More trouble coming for the couple?

The Bold and the Beautiful hasn’t shown Eric and Quinn since Christmas. When viewers last saw the couple, they appeared to be happy. Yet, as soap opera fans know, no one lives happily ever after.

Odds are the next time Eric and Quinn are seen; there will be more trouble in paradise. First, there are Quinn’s unresolved feelings for Carter. When she sees that he’s moving on, a spark of jealousy may reignite her dangerous side. So Paris Buckingham (Diamond White), Katie Logan (Heather Tom), or any of Carter’s other ladies better watch out.

Also, one can’t forget Donna. She was devastated when Eric put the kibosh on a possible reunion. Donna still pines for her Honey Bear and may not be ready to move on. Although she said she wouldn’t pursue a married man, Donna could be ready to reclaim her man with some convincing from her sisters.
