On today's episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Eric lands in the hospital. The demise takes place after a particularly vicious battle with his kids... and intense sex with his new young wife, of course.
"Eric has a heart attack," John McCook, who plays the Forrester patriarch, told The New York Daily News. "After some intimacy, sweet Donna is talking to him and he doesn't respond."
Donna calls 911 after the incident, as paramedics rush Eric to the hospital. Bridget orders tests, and the family gathers at his bedside.
"What's scary about this is that it coincides with Ridge and the Forrester progeny trying to take over the company and let Eric go," said McCook.
By the end of next week on the show - spoiler alert! - Donna finds papers that prove she has Eric's power of attorney, and she won't let Ridge take over his company while he's incapacitated. Ridge, in response, vows to bring Donna down.
"It's a scary time," teases McCook.
