The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Thomas Forrester’s (Matthew Atkinson) days of freedom are nearing an end. The last criminal in the heinous Beth Spencer (Madeline Valdez and River Davidson) case remains at large. But that status can’t be allowed to persist.
Detective Alex Sanchez’ (Jeremy Ray Valdez) arrival at the cabin was welcomed by Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye). But following the arrest of Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden), questioning takes place that involves Thomas’ involvement in the death of Emma Barber (Nia Sioux).
Ridge, along with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) didn’t want to accept what Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) have been saying all summer. Something is wrong with Thomas.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Thomas Forrester Must Be Caught
Atkinson’s character must be caught, as B&B viewers know. This stands as the last major unresolved plot issue in what had been an extensive and enduring storyline involving the steal of Lope’s daughter, along with her subsequent conceal in plain sight under the guise of Phoebe Forrester.
Vincent Walker (Joe LoCicero), who supplied Thomas with some amoral chemicals earlier this summer and on the day of Thope’s intended honeymoon, has been harboring his childhood friend. Viewers last saw Atkinson’s brilliantly played alter ego running like the demon he is off the helipad. After being head-locked by Liam into silently acknowledging that Beth was Phoebe, Thomas took off and wasn’t seen again until reappearing at Vinny’s place.
Soap fans know that this part of the cascading climax could be written in various ways. Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) was simply a side character who served his end months ago. His arrest in England wasn’t even shown, but merely referenced by Ridge.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – A Redemption Story Can Allow Him To Stay
Flo is a regular character. So her arrest was played up for dramatic affect, which included a hard face slap by Hope Forrester (Annika Noelle). Bowden could remain with the cast, or be completing her run based upon what happens to Flo. But the Thomas character is part of B&B’s legacy Forrester family. Played by different actors over time, the recast that welcomed Atkinson to the set took place earlier this year.
Many recent mentions of Thomas’ past mental health issues seemed to project an out. Yes, Thomas is guilty of many moral crimes within this storyline, but is there enough evidence to hold him legally responsible for Emma’s death?

With however it plays out, here’s hoping that Atkinson stays. A redemption story, as part of his mental health rehabilitation efforts, can allow this to happen. Plus, viewers and affected fictional Los Angeles, California, residents would always be wondering if Thomas would revert to form again some day.
