The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for Tuesday, November 19, tease that things are going to rev up on the CBS drama. But before we get to that, we have a programming note to pass along. There are impeachment hearings scheduled for Tuesday in both the morning and the afternoon, so there’s a very good likelihood that Tuesday’s show will be pre-empted. But in the event the show airs on Tuesday, here’s what you can expect.
As B&B viewers know, Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) has just come forward with a startling admission – she’s just stated to Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) that Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) is dead. That was a huge bombshell to drop on Ridge, who had just rushed over to Brooke Forrester’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) mansion. Ridge seemed pretty shocked by the statement, but what will happen next?
B&B Spoilers: Brooke Forrester Deceives Ridge Forrester
Well, given the nature of ongoing B&B spoilers, it looks like Hope was either imagining her confession, or that Brooke will quickly step in and cover for Hope with an explanation for her huge admission. The latter is probably what will occur, since B&B spoilers indicate that Ridge will eventually be stunned by the lengths of Brooke’s deception. So it seems that she’s going to fib to Ridge about what she and Hope think happened to Thomas.
Of course, B&B viewers know that Hope and Brooke believe that Thomas is dead. Hope pushed him on a catwalk at Forrester Creations and he fell into a vat of what she believes was hydrofluoric acid. The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say that Thomas didn’t actually die and that he will return in subsequent episodes, but for now both Hope and Brooke believe that he’s gone for good.

So if Brooke steps in to help Hope and conceals Thomas’ “death” to Ridge, then it looks like Hope will ultimately do the same. In fact, B&B spoilers for Tuesday’s episode say that Hope will struggle to tell Ridge where Thomas is and why he’s missing. It appears that Brooke will step in with an explanation, perhaps that Thomas had to be away for a few days.
As B&B viewers know, Brooke doesn’t want Hope to be implicated in Thomas’ death, and she’s been suggesting that Hope not come forward with the truth. Ultimately, it appears that the story Brooke will choose to tell Ridge about what happened will center around Thomas’ indecent proposal to Hope, and how he offered to give Hope joint custody of Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) if she agreed to sleep with him.

That news will surely come as a shock to Ridge, and perhaps Brooke will insinuate that Thomas may have gone away for a while due to the shame over the proposal he suggested to Hope. Whatever the case, Ridge is going to be horrified to hear this particular detail about his son.

B&B spoilers also indicate that Ridge will regroup with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) on Tuesday’s episode, and that Steffy will also learn about Thomas’ indecent proposal to Hope. Both Ridge and Steffy will be concerned about Thomas, but it doesn’t seem that they’ll end up having any real suspicion that Thomas could be dead. They’ll simply be worried about how he’s doing and what drove him to such lengths.
Ridge might also want to talk with Thomas and get his side of the story on the indecent proposal, plus he’ll probably want to know what Thomas was thinking in signing the adoption papers. Plus, Ridge will just want to be there for his son and perhaps even strategize about how to un-do the adoption process, if that’s even possible at this point.
