The Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers: Hope Naive To Thomas’ Plan – Douglas Being Openly Used
The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that Hope Spencer’s (Annika Noelle) kindness will allow a naively slow-walk down a path with Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson). Unbeknownst to her, Atkinson’s devolving character is attempting to use his son’s grief as part of a plan to reestablish a connection with Hope.
Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) and Hope find themselves in a similar emotional space. Both are enduring unthinkable losses. Douglas lost his mother, Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey), shortly after Hope was told by the diabolical Dr. Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady, in a great recurring role), that she’d lost her first-born child, Beth Spencer (Isabella de Armas and Redford Prindiville), who was supposedly stillborn. Actually, she’s living under Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) care, using the name Phoebe Forrester.
B&B Spoilers– Thomas Wanted To Lean On Family
Thomas’ decision to return to Los Angeles, California, wasn’t part of a master plan. At first, he simply wanted to connect with family members and friends, while also believing, genuinely, that Douglas would gain support as a result. That was good parenting.
But the instant Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) discovered that Thomas was creating a drawing for Hope, as though it was from Douglas, she and the viewers knew that Mr. Forrester’s initial intentions in returning home had radically shifted. To make matters even worse, whenever he’s exposed, Thomas won’t be able to claim that the loss of his romantic partner, Caroline, caused him to act as he did. He previously let everyone know, including Hope, that he and Caroline weren’t together, but simply were co-parenting Douglas.
B&B is a half-hour show, which means it has fewer characters than a one-hour steamer like it’s parent, The Young and the Restless. Working under that reality, B&B creates many storylines where characters interlock. So, having Thomas’ sister, Steffy, be the person who unknowingly gained Beth-Phoebe through a purported private adoption will serve to increase the coming fallout.
BOLD Spoilers– Will Beth/Phoebe Fallout, Cause Steffy-Hope Friction?
Hope already has a longstanding rivalry with Steffy, due to their mutual love of Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). To think that Wood’s character and her mother basically bought Beth-Phoebe from Reese, with Flo Fulton-Logan’s (Katrina Bowden) willful assistance, is amazing. Plus, Flo has now been revealed as Hope’s cousin.
With whatever he’s thinking, Thomas certainly is not considering Hope’s best interests in trying to split her from her husband. Thomas’ eventual reveal as an emotional manipulator will be coupled with Steffy’s part, albeit unknowing, in the baby secret.

The current effort, where Thomas used video of Kelly Spencer (Zoe Pennington) repeatedly calling out for her dad to coerce Hope into urging her husband to fly to Paris, France, is twisted. B&B fans can see why the recast of the character Atkinson now plays happened, as the Thomas (Pierson Fode) who left Los Angeles, California, in the recent past wasn’t behaving like this.
