At the Forrester mansion, Thorne, Ridge, Rick, Thomas, Steffy, Pam, and Zende discussed the email wedding invitations they had all received from Quinn and Eric. Eric entered the house and noted that it had been quiet at the office. He realized it was because all of them had gathered at the house.
Ridge stepped forward and said that he had discussed the invitation with Felicia, Kristen, Bridget, and everyone who was present. They all agreed that they loved Eric, "but we can't let you marry Quinn," Ridge said. Thorne agreed. Pam grabbed Eric's hand. "For the love of my sister's life," she said tearfully. She begged him not to marry Quinn. Zende added that the romance had been really fast, and his mother was not happy about it.
Thorne expressed his concern. Eric hoped Thorne hadn't returned to Los Angeles to talk him out of his wedding. Thorne said he had heard that Eric was dating Quinn then had received a wedding invitation. "I'm worried about you," he said. He had heard about Quinn, and Steffy piped up that they had only told Thorne what they could prove.
Other family members agreed that they respected Eric, but his decision making regarding Quinn was off. "We can't let this happen," Steffy said. Ridge noted that the family was united in agreement, and that never happened. "This is a mistake. She's never gonna be part of this family," Ridge said.
Eric said he'd heard enough and appreciated their concern. He added that everyone in the room had made mistakes and been given second chances. "Stephanie was famous for her iron will and her capacity to forgive," he said. He reminded everyone that her worst enemy had become her dearest friend in the end.
"I see her strength in all of you," Eric said. He added that she had held the family together through countless struggles. "You can do this because you're Forresters," Eric said. He wanted them at his wedding. He wanted their blessings, and he wanted them to see him with a new start with Quinn.
Eric believed it was hard to ignore what Quinn had done, but that was in the past. He was marrying her because he loved her. She was a complex, beautiful, and interesting woman. She brought balance to his life. "Isn't that what marriage is all about? Balance?" Eric asked. He added that very few marriages would ever occur if they were open to family votes.
Eric reminded all of them that they were desperate to protect the family's success, but the success had all happened because of him and his faith in them. "That's what I want to see tomorrow -- your faith in me, and we start over again with Quinn," he said. Eric walked out. Steffy and Pam were tearful.
At Forrester Creations, Quinn was in her office, and Wyatt entered. He was amazed that she had emailed wedding invitations. Quinn said that Eric had wanted to get married right away. Wyatt said it was a bad idea. Quinn disagreed and said that Ridge had wanted to see Eric at home. She hoped they were patching things up.
Wyatt scoffed. "Eric's family is probably getting out the torches and pitchforks," Wyatt said. Quinn argued that she and Eric were excited and had planned a beautiful ceremony. "Eric hasn't given up on his family," she said. She hoped Wyatt would be there.
Wyatt was speechless. Quinn wanted him to be happy for her, and he said he was, but he would have been happier if it had been anyone else. He'd have given a speech. Quinn gushed that a speech would be wonderful, but Wyatt shook his head. "We're in love. I hope you can find a way to support us," Quinn said.
At the Forrester mansion, Thorne, Ridge, Rick, Thomas, Pam, and Zende debated what to do about the wedding. Steffy had gone into another room. Quinn entered and asked about Eric. Ridge answered that he was upstairs. Ridge told her that the wedding was tearing the family apart. Quinn argued that they all owed it Eric to support him. "Give him that gift," she said.
The family refused to support Quinn. Pam told her to leave Eric alone. "Eric means everything to me, and he's been alone long enough," Quinn said. Quinn promised to be loyal and devoted. "I am going to honor Eric every single day we spend together," she said. She asked them to honor him as well. "Don't fight this. Accept our invitation, please," she begged.
Ridge walked away, and the rest of the family followed him out the door. Quinn stood alone in the foyer of the mansion. Steffy walked out of another room. "It's not your house yet," she said to Quinn. Steffy wondered if Quinn had run her family out of the house, but Quinn solemnly said they hadn't wanted to stay.
Quinn wanted everyone to get along, but Steffy said it would never happen. Steffy asked about Eric, and Quinn said he was upstairs and probably very upset. "None of us are happy," Steffy said.
Quinn promised to be a devoted wife and make Eric proud. She would never hurt him or let anyone else hurt him. "He changed me, and we are good together. Why can't you and your family see that?" she asked. She begged Steffy to attend the wedding. She reminded Steffy that if she supported her grandfather, the others would follow. "Forget that I am the one who's asking. Do it for you grandfather -- for everything he's ever done for you," Quinn said. Steffy looked emotional.
Upstairs in his bedroom, Eric sat alone, and the objections he'd recently heard from all of his family members echoed in his head. He remembered asking for their support, and he looked distraught.
At Forrester Creations, Thorne, Ridge, Rick, Thomas, Pam, and Zende debated what to do about the wedding, and Maya entered. Rick said they'd thought they could convince Eric to at least postpone the wedding, but they couldn't. They all agreed that Eric's request to attend the wedding had hit home. Ridge wondered if they could forget the horrible things Quinn had done and support their father. Ridge worried that it condoned everything Quinn had done.
