The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that executive producer-head writer Brad Bell suggests the truth about Beth may not come out for years. The showrunner said that the biggest payoff in this type of storyline is best if they wait to reveal the truth years later. Here’s everything we know about this B&B storyline.
No One Likes This Storyline
The truth is, not many B&B fans are on board with this storyline. It’s emotionally charged and it seems to be downright cruel. Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) took Hope Logan’s (Annika Noelle) healthy baby, told her baby was born dead, and sold her baby to Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). When it all comes out, Steffy will find out the baby that she loved and welcomed into her home as Phoebe, is Hope and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) daughter. There is no way around it—when this comes out, Steffy will have to hand over the child to Hope and Liam.
In this storyline, everyone loses. The child will lose time with her real parents. Hope and Liam lose time with their child. Steffy will lose a child she loves. It seems like a cruel storyline, something that will only send someone over the edge when it comes out.
Hope runs into Dr. Buckingham at her doctor's office and demands answers to her questions about what transpired on Catalina Island. WATCH FULL EPISODE: https://t.co/PC6iLpXGjf #BoldandBeautiful pic.twitter.com/bTwZeCTxlg

Brad Bell Wants This To Come Out Years From Now
Bell said that the correct way to reveal the truth about Beth is slowly and over time. He joked that it would be good to wait until Beth was eight to ten years old. He compared it to Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) paternity secret on Young and the Restless.
But Beth’s storyline is not like Summer’s. She was sold in the black market, adopted, and her parents believe she is dead. Waiting ten years to reveal she is alive and well, just seems cruel to Hope, Liam, Steffy, Phoebe or Beth, and the dedicated fans.
