B&B: Pam Plots Against Quinn
■ A fed-up Pam enlists Donna’s help to bring down the current Mrs. Eric Forrester. “Up until now, Pam and Quinn have always gotten along for Eric’s sake,” says Alley Mills (Pam). “They’ve corked the dam for a long time, but now that cork is leaking after what Quinn did to Stephanie’s portrait. This is the beginning of something, and Quinn has no idea of the storm on the horizon.”
Pam first reaches out to Donna to make amends. “Pam makes it a point to apologize to Donna for tormenting her in the past,” explains Mills. “They’ve already gotten past that and actually have become great friends since those days, but Pam needs Donna to know that she is sorry about what transpired between them. And now, neither of them likes Quinn, so that’s something they have in common.”
Knowing that it will annoy Quinn, Pam suggests to Eric that he rehire Donna at Forrester Creations. “Despite all of the ‘practical jokes’ Pam has played on Donna over the years, she still has a soft spot for her,” notes Jennifer Gareis (Donna). “It was a medical condition that made Pam act that way, and though they used to be frenemies, I think they’re actually friends and now, co-workers again. Donna just falls for her lines again and again and again. Somehow, it never gets old.”
“Quinn has no idea of the storm on the horizon.”
According to Mills, Pam is aware that Donna still has feelings for Eric, and hopes to use that to her advantage. “Donna still lights up whenever Eric enters the room,” Mills points out. “Pam was not a fan of Donna being with Eric, because she believed he was meant to be with her sister, Stephanie. But now that Eric is with Quinn, I think it’s a case of the lesser of two evils. With all the mean things Quinn has said and done over the last few weeks, she is the last person Pam would ever want Eric to be with. She doesn’t deserve him.”
As for Donna, she’s happy to try to rekindle things with Eric. “Quinn has quieted down due to Eric’s influence, because that’s what Eric does to a woman; he grounds them,” asserts Gareis. “But I think Donna being back in the picture will bring out that side of Quinn that we haven’t seen in awhile. Donna and Pam both want the same thing, possibly for the first time ever, so I believe they will be a force to be reckoned with.”
Round Two: Pam (Mills, r.) turns to Donna for help neutralizing Quinn (Rena Sofer).
