The starting point isn’t after Phoebe Forrester (Madeline Valdez and River Davidson) is revealed as Beth Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful. Instead, viewers can choose to stand where Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) is in order to consider a worthwhile point. From that perspective let’s consider whether Thomas’ goals are right, even though the actions he’s taking are wrong.
Thomas believes, like everyone else outside of Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) and Flo Fulton-Logan’s (Katrina Bowden) crooked circle, that Beth was stillborn on Catalina Island. He also thinks that Phoebe is the adopted newborn girl his sister, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), is raising.
B&B observers are right to challenge the above paragraph’s intent. Because of it, just like Thomas’ lines, implies that he’s weighing all things equally when he’s not.
B&B Spoilers– Thomas Wants Douglas To Have A Mom
Thomas’ thoughts about his son, Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri), led him to fixate on reforming a relationship with Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle). Atkinson’s devious character then orchestrated Liam Spencer’s (Scott Clifton) perceived, pressing need to fly to Paris, France, where he could spend time with Phoebe and Kelly Spencer (Zoe Pennington and Chloe Teperman), who was believed to be longing for him.
The latest illustration Hope thinks she received from Douglas was actually created by Thomas. The letter with Caroline Spencer’s (Linsey Godfrey) last wishes that caused Hope to decide to leave Liam was also faked by Thomas.
So, there is no question that Mr. Forrester has lied to forward his goals of splitting ‘Lope’ and having Hope become Douglas’ stand-in mother. Thomas’ anticipated follow-through outcome would also have her become his wife, in time.

BOLD Spoilers– Is Thomas’ Actions With Hope Wrong?
Secondarily, Liam would return to Steffy and help raise the girls. Maybe ‘Steam’ would reform, but that’s not Thomas’ leading concern.
Sure, the Phoebe-Beth reveal will remix current thoughts and emotions. But knowing what the current characters know now, are Thomas’ goals actually right?
Hope would be better off with Thomas and Douglas, as that little boy already fills a large place in her broken heart. And, Liam should be helping Steffy raise Kelly full-time, along with becoming a father to her adopted sister, Phoebe.
So, are Thomas’ goals right despite his actions being wrong? Please vote in our poll below! 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.
