The couple’s challenges are Pam Douglas’ (Alley Mills) attempts to kill Donna, Eric’s health problems, and Donna’s infidelity with Owen Knight (Brandon Beemer). Although it appears they’re headed for splitsville, the couple reconciles. However, things reach a boiling point following Beth Logan’s (Robin Riker) death. Donna blames Stephanie for Beth’s death, but Eric is quick to defend his ex. It’s then that Donna realizes Eric’s still in love with Stephanie.

Will Eric Forrester find love with a Logan sister?

Currently, Eric’s married to Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer), but Eric’s erectile dysfunction complicates their relationship. Unable to be intimate with Quinn, Eric asked Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor) to step in. As Quinn and Carter carry on their affair, the Logan sisters are uniting to help Eric.

Based on the current direction, it seems Eric will be getting his mojo back, thanks to one of the Logans. Although many suspect the show will finally reunite Donna with her Honeybear, there might be a swerve. Eric’s recent scenes with Katie Logan (Heather Tom) have sparked speculation she’ll be his new love interest. Katie going after her sister’s man would be a huge shock and create turmoil in the close-knit Logan family.
