The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for Tuesday, August 20, tease that Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) will be in need of legal assistance. As B&B viewers know, she’s just had a major showdown with Florence “Flo” Fulton (Katrina Bowden) and watched as Flo was led away in handcuffs. That was a big legal victory for Hope and her family, but on Tuesday’s episode, Hope is going to need some help with some additional legal issues.
According to B&B spoilers, Hope will seek assistance from Bill Spencer’s (Don Diamont) attorney and right-hand man, Justin Barber (Aaron D. Spears). Hope is fully aware of how Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) manipulated and lied to her, and how he kept her daughter Beth Spencer’s (River Davidson and Madeline Valdez) existence from her for months. She wants nothing more to do with Thomas and will ask Justin to help her to annul the marriage.
Hope will also ask Justin to help her with another matter…undoing Beth’s adoption to Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). As B&B viewers know, Steffy adopted Beth under false pretenses. Flo pretended to be Beth’s birth mom, and Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) forged the adoption documents and birth certificate. But even though the adoption was fraudulent and illegal, there will still be a lot of legal hoops to jump through in order to undo the whole thing.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Want To Be Recognized As Legal Parents
Ultimately, Hope and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) will want to be sure they are officially and legally recognized as Beth’s parents, and that Beth gets the proper paperwork and birth certificate so she’s legally “Beth Spencer” and not “Phoebe Forrester.” It will likely take some legal wrangling to get there, but Justin can get the job done.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday’s new episode of B&B, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) will be questioned about his son Thomas. As B&B viewers know, Ridge just saw to it that Flo was arrested for her crimes against Hope, Liam, and Steffy. But he’ll soon find that there is a downside to getting the cops involved.
After Flo’s arrest, it looks like Detective Alex Sanchez (Jeremy Ray Valdez) will stick around and want to talk to Ridge about Thomas and his involvement what happened with Beth. Of course, Thomas didn’t have anything to do with Beth’s kidnapping or illegal adoption like Flo did, but he did keep the secret about Beth’s existence and insist that others keep it as well.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Thomas Forrester’s Involvement In A Death
Detective Sanchez will let it be known that he’s interested in talking to Thomas about his possible involvement in Emma Barber’s (Nia Sioux) fatal car accident on Mulholland Drive. As B&B viewers know, Thomas was chasing Emma when she ran off the road, crashed, and died. In addition to possibly contributing to the accident, Thomas fled the scene of the accident without offering Emma any assistance.
It looks like Detective Sanchez will have his suspicions about Thomas’ actions relative to the accident, and he’ll want to know if Ridge has seen or heard from Thomas. Of course, Ridge hasn’t heard from Thomas or been able to reach him at all, so he won’t be of much help.
But all of the questioning will unnerve Ridge. Ridge knows that his son has done some terrible things, but he just doesn’t want to believe that Thomas could have been involved in Emma’s death. Ridge really wants to talk to Thomas and hear from him about what happened before he reaches any conclusions, and he certainly doesn’t want to help Detective Sanchez to hunt down Thomas.

In the end, it doesn’t look like Ridge would be able to offer Detective Sanchez any damaging information even if he wanted to. But that’s not going to stop Detective Sanchez from continuing to search for Thomas or investigating him further. Thomas will be in some serious trouble once he’s finally caught.
