While Carter Walton, played by Lawrence Saint-Victor, keeps a cool head at work when he’s acting as Forrester Creations’ COO, he didn’t hold back with his emotions at all after finding out that his fiancée Zoe was entertaining a future with his pal Zende.
Lawrence Saint-Victor — Performer of the Week
Saint-Victor exploded with raw emotion over the betrayal and for being played as a fool by both his fiancée and his friend. For the actor’s powerful performance, Soap Hub bestows Performer of the Week for BB on Saint-Victor.
Zoe (Kiara Barnes) tried to explain to Carter that she’d received a delayed text from Zende (Delon de Metz), asking her to give him a chance even though she was on her way to making a commitment with Carter.
Zende’s arrival into the same room at Forrester that Carter and Zoe were in didn’t help matters. “I trusted you,” Carter blasted his ex-buddy. “We were friends!”
Carter chastised Zende for not only betraying him with Zoe but also for throwing away what he had with Nicole (Reign Edwards). Zende claimed that wasn’t the case. (Hey, what did happen with Nicole? Hopefully, we find out soon!) Carter couldn’t see past his fury, demanding to know why Zende didn’t tell him what was going on!
Zende suggested that he stayed silent because talking to Carter about his personal life wasn’t Zende’s business. “And you got in my business!” Carter lashed out.
Zoe begged Carter for another chance, telling him that she wasn’t ready for him initially, but assured him that she indeed wanted a future with him. Next, Carter had a choice to make: believe Zoe or not. Just then, Paris (Diamond White) entered the room and Carter asked her if he should trust Zoe.
Carter knew that neither Zoe nor Zende wanted Paris’s input on this, but that just reinforced the attorney’s resolve to get it. Paris said that while she believed Zoe loves Carter, her opinion shouldn’t matter.
Carter quelled his anger to examine his own role in this situation, noting that perhaps he’d moved too quickly – but as he knew Zoe was the woman for him, he saw no need to delay. Carter decided to do what perhaps he should have done months ago – take some time to figure out what he wants. Before exiting, he advised Paris to stay clear of Zende given his recent actions or rather, his inactions.
Last year, Carter was promoted to Forrester’s COO as a reward for his years of hard work with the company. Conversely, Saint-Victor, who’s been on the show since 2013, is now being rewarded with heavy material worthy of his leading man ability and looks. We can’t wait for more!
