Is “A New Bump In The Road” Ahead?

THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’s Eric and Quinn haven’t had much sto­ry­line of late, a de­vel­op­ment many fans — not to men­tion their por­tray­ers — would love to see rec­ti­fied!

ABC Soaps In Depth - - News -

The In Depth Story: John McCook (Eric) says the fact that he and his co-star, Rena Sofer (Quinn), have taken a back seat on the show in re­cent months is an ex­am­ple of the nat­u­ral ebb and flow that dif­fer­ent sto­ry­lines take. “We haven’t been on the can- vas much,” he ac­knowl­edges, “but it’s all cool, be­cause the show has been in­volved with this great [Who shot Bill?] sto­ry­line lately, and we’re not part of that story. That’s all. So if you’re not in the [cur­rent] story, you’re not on the show.”

Once the soap does de­cide to cir­cle back to the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Quinn and Eric, might Sheila con­tinue to fac­tor in as a wouldbe spoiler? “I don’t think so,” muses Sofer. “I love the whole Sheila [rivalry], but there’s re­ally only one note to play there.”

In­stead, Sofer says she’d en­joy a sto­ry­line that pits Eric and Quinn against each other in some new and dif­fer­ent way. “I’d like to see Eric do some­thing wrong, where Quinn is in the po­si­tion of hav­ing to make a tough de­ci­sion and put her foot down, where he pays the price of los­ing her.”

“I’d like to see Eric do some­thing wrong… where he pays the price of los­ing Quinn.”

That’s not to say Sofer is look­ing for Eric and Quinn to part ways, but she’d love for them to en­counter an ob­sta­cle that re­ally threat­ens their re­la­tion­ship. “I’m very, very, very pro­tec­tive of Quinn and Eric, and I know that’s prob­a­bly the worst thing to be on a soap opera,” she says, al­lud­ing to the fact that “hap­pily ever af­ter” sce­nar­ios can be the death knell for cou­ples. “I wouldn’t want to not work with [McCook], but I’d like to see Quinn and Eric en­counter a new bump in the road that isn’t nec­es­sar­ily about Ridge, some­thing that tests them in a dif­fer­ent way.”

It’s just a mat­ter of time be­fore Eric and Quinn get taken off the back­burner.
