The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoiler recap for Tuesday, August 17 reveals that Carter Walton’s (Lawrence Saint-Victor) plans for a romantic night have taken a devastating turn – and Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) has confessed that ‘She was considering a security guard because of her fears of Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).
At the Forrester Mansion during Tuesday’s B&B episode, Eric Forrester (John McCook) told Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer) that he loved her and admitted he had failed when it came to standing up for his wife.
Eric reiterated that he didn’t want their marriage to end when Quinn looked stunned.
Eric knew he had taken a tough stance before, but now he had decided he wanted to forgive Quinn and get their love back.
When Sheila came out of the woods, it helped Eric see that everything Quinn has done pales in comparison to the destruction of Sheila.
Eric insisted he didn’t want the divorce anymore and tore up the papers right in front of Quinn. He hoped that sent a strong enough message, but Quinn was at a loss for words.
Eric said it was clear to him that Quinn still loved her, so he wanted to be her husband again and rebuild this marriage.
Eric urged Quinn to buy some stuff for the night and stay at the mansion as they could collect the rest of his stuff later.
After Eric quickly pulled Quinn into a warm hug, she looked uncomfortable as she looked over his shoulder.
At Carter’s loft, he thought back to a private moment with Quinn then smiled as he looked at his portrait. Carter also picked up a blanket and returned to a passionate moment underneath with Quinn.
Carter set up candles and wine before having more flashbacks while holding Quinn’s bracelet.
When Quinn showed up to find the romantic setup, Carter admitted that it must have been painful to finalize her divorce. He didn’t know what his future looked like, but he knew he wanted Quinn to be part of it.
Carter reminded Quinn that he didn’t want to sneak in and that he didn’t care about the consequences since she was worth it.
However, Quinn insisted that Carter did not understand. Carter interrupted him to say how heartbroken and angry he was before Quinn came into his life.
Quinn felt lucky that Carter wanted to be with her for her – especially after all the people she had hurt and the lines she had crossed.
Before Carter could get closer, Quinn admitted that the divorce had not been finalized and that somehow Eric had found it in his heart to forgive her. She added that Eric didn’t want the marriage to end and that he said he wanted her to come back.
Carter closed his eyes and bowed his head as he realized the seriousness of Quinn’s confession.
At Forrester Creations, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) assured Steffy that she didn’t have to pretend everything was fine after all of Sheila’s drama.
Ridge felt his daughter deserved to be happy, but Steffy insisted she was.
Steffy pointed out that she loved Finn, which was all that mattered. She added that Sheila would never be a part of Finn’s life or that family.
Steffy admitted that she was considering bringing in a security guard before Ridge pointed out that it was only a matter of time until mad Sheila contacted Finn again.
Steffy assured Ridge that Finn wanted nothing to do with Sheila and that he could be trusted. She didn’t think Finn was going to let her or the kids down since he always put them first.
At the Cliff House, Finn watched Sheila’s text as Paris noted how much he had to unpack about his birth mother.
Paris was more than willing to listen and reciprocate since Finn had been so nice to her to Steffy.
Besides, Paris thought she could understand since her father had done terrible things and was in jail. She felt guilty because everyone hated Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady), but she missed him and still wanted him to be a part of her life.
Finn talked about imagining what it would be like to meet his birth mother growing up.
Paris laughed at Finn’s admission that he always used to imagine Lucille Ball when he watched reruns of I Love Lucy.
Finn also spoke about the emotional and cathartic experience of looking into Sheila’s eyes.
It was as if Finn had finally found a piece of himself that was missing, but he never imagined that his birth mother would be so dangerous.
Finn finally revealed that Sheila texted him a farewell and added that he didn’t say anything because he didn’t want to upset Steffy. He asked Paris not to say anything either.
Finn said he didn’t know what else to do because it didn’t feel good not to respond, so he sent an emoji back.
Paris got it, but she reminded Finn that the Forresters were terrified of Sheila. If Sheila reached out again, Finn was planning to tell Steffy about it – but he hadn’t seen it happen.
Suddenly there was a knock on the door. “What if it was Sheila?” A worried Paris asked Finn.
