“The Bold and the Beautiful” (BB) recap for Thursday, July 11, 2019 reveals that over at Forrester Creations, Brooke Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang), Katie Logan (Heather Tom) and Donna Logan (Jennifer Gareis) try to impress upon Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) that she doesn’t have to marry Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson).
Hope thinks Douglas Forrester’s (Henry Joseph Samiri) proposal was sweet; it would break his heart if she said no. Brooke narrows her eyes and says that’s what Thomas was counting on. Katie counsels that you can’t marry someone if your heart isn’t in it. Brooke remarks that ever since Thomas returned, he’s been focused on Hope and says it’s too much and reminds her of his past issues getting fixated on things then adds he’s unstable.
The debate continues, with Hope defending Thomas. She said yes because of her love for the children and she wants to be a mother and have a family. Brooke counters she could have done that with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). Katie hasn’t heard Hope say anything about Thomas. Hope explains he knows how much she wants to be a mother. Brooke agrees and says he’s exploiting that to make her his wife. After Hope leaves, Brooke tells her sisters Thomas is using Hope’s best qualities against her and complains Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) called her ‘Stephanie’ over this. She laments Hope doesn’t even realize what Thomas is doing.
