BOLD Spoilers– Ridge Questions Thomas’ Intentions
At Forrester Creations, Ridge and Thomas are talking about the future. Ridge doesn’t think it’s right that Thomas is scheming to try and pull Hope away from Liam. Ridge gives his son a warning and says that trying to replace Caroline Spencer with another mother – who is grieving nonetheless – is not the answer.
He explains that trying to put Hope into a puzzle piece that she doesn’t fit in simply won’t work in the long run. Ridge also questions Thomas and asks if he’s able to give Hope what she truly deserves and that’s love and stability. Thomas can’t answer the question but says that he’s drawn to her nonetheless. He also points out that Douglas can’t live without her.
