The mo­ment Liam (Scott Clifton) fainted in front of Quinn (Rena Sofer) on Wed­nes­day 15 Fe­bru­ary, she smug­gled him off to her cabin in the woods like a squir­rel with a nut. She’d do any­thing to give Liam’s half-brother – her dar­ling son Wy­att (Darin Brooks) – a chance with the girl of his dreams, Liam’s fi­ancée St­effy (Jac­que­line MacInnes Wood). But crazy Quinn’s com­plete in­abil­ity to see a moral line with­out skip­ping across it is go­ing to lead her into a hor­rific sit­u­a­tion with Liam.

SERPENT IN THE GAR­DEN

While Wy­att is com­fort­ing St­effy over her miss­ing love on Thurs­day 2 March, Quinn spins a tale for Liam. “Your name is Adam,” she says. When he jok­ingly sug­gests, “And you’re Eve?”, Quinn goes with it and claims to be his wife Eve. Since Liam is a hope­less ro­man­tic, his next step is to kiss his lovely wife on Fri­day 3 March. Quinn should slam on the brakes but she kisses back in­stead.

DEA­CON’S TWO CENTS

Quinn’s grip is def­i­nitely slip­ping. On Mon­day 6 March, she con­fides in “Adam” about her mother’s re­jec­tion of her when she was a child – some­thing we’ve never seen her tell any­one ever. And when Quinn’s (now mys­te­ri­ously es­tranged) hus­band Dea­con (Sean Kanan) barges in on Tues­day 7 March, he high­lights how per­verse that grow­ing intimacy is when he asks Quinn whether she’s had sex with her new “hus­band”. Dea­con warns Quinn that when Liam gets his mem­ory back, “He’s go­ing to think that you’re evil and that you’re ma­nip­u­la­tive. And, Quinn, you’re go­ing to wind up in a padded cell!”

MOV­ING VI­O­LA­TIONS

Dea­con’s ad­vice is in one ear, out the other. On Fri­day 10 March, Quinn lets her pris­oner ten­derly ro­mance her into bed – fully aware of the men­tal is­sues that make con­sent­ing to sex im­pos­si­ble for him right now, par­tic­u­larly with a woman who Liam, in his nor­mal state, fears and loathes. It’s not the only thing she’s tak­ing from him: Quinn’s now tricked St­effy into feel­ing so re­jected by Liam that she winds up in bed with Wy­att the same day. It’s so bizarre that we have to won­der whether Quinn is men­tally com­pe­tent enough for con­sent her­self.

Liam hasn’t got a clue where he is… or even who he is. Quinn crosses the line by kiss­ing Liam. Mean­while, Wy­att is com­fort­ing St­effy.

For once in his life, Dea­con has good ad­vice.
