The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) imminent return to Los Angeles, California, will plunge her into the middle of multiple dramas. Along with the lead baby swap storyline is her brother’s brazen scheme to steal Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle) from Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton).
As B&B fans recall, Steffy is the one who promoted Lope’s revival last year. She literally told Liam to leave her and go back to Hope, which he did.
Returning to town and then learning of Thomas’ high-schooler type plan will serve to upset Steffy. While she still loves Liam, she took the high road in wanting Clifton’s character to be with the woman he appeared to care for more deeply.
B&B Spoilers– How Will Steffy React To Thomas’ plan
Steffy’s instincts seem to have proven right, as Liam manned up to Thomas after bee-lining back from Paris, France. He did so after Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) called to tell him what Thomas was up to. Liam is clearly dedicated to Hope.
Backhand credit can be given to Thomas for admitting some of what he’s doing. While not going so far as to acknowledge that he’s using his own son, Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri), Thomas has openly acknowledged, in front of Lope when challenged, that he believes Hope should leave Liam and be with him.
Hope made a breakthrough from her grief when Thomas returned home following Caroline Spencer’s (Linsey Godfrey) shocking death. Mrs. Spencer established a meaningful bond with Douglas that allowed her to focus on issues other than seemingly lost, first-born daughter, Beth Spencer (Isabella de Armas and Rosalind Aune).
BOLD Spoilers– Steffy’s Bound To Be Stunned By Flo’s Father
With Steffy now entering the mix, B&B’s complex arc is set to move forward. At first, the issue with Thomas will need to be addressed. While he’s intent on making Hope Douglas’ new mother and gaining a wife for himself, it’s possible that Steffy’s influence will prove to be a difference-maker.

As the above plot point is flowing, Beth-Phoebe’s maternity issue will move from a simmer to boil. Flo Fulton-Logan (Katrina Bowden), who continues to claim to be the birth mother, has accepted a position at Forrester Creations as part of her just-discovered Logan family tie. This means that she’ll be in regular contact with Hope, Steffy, and the newborn that’s at the center of B&B’s main storyline.
Thomas’ persistence in his personal pursuits could allow him to gain information about Hope’s undead child. Doing so would alter many lives, but would create an interesting choice. Steffy’s brother would have the ability to be an even greater manipulator.
Would Thomas tell Hope the truth, which would almost assuredly strengthen Lope, or further Flo’s lies, which would keep his Tope plan alive? B&B fans must keep an eye on Thomas as the remainder of spring and possibly, summer unfolds.
As always, more detailed spoilers and a full collection of pictures for the week in question will appear on Soap Opera Spy, where there will be more clues and hints over exactly what’s going on.
