The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) told her husband the truth, as she’s been incessantly doing for months. But Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) refuses to grasp it.
In Ridge’s mind he’s defending his son, Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson). But that’s not really what Kaye’s character is doing. While it might be considered a cliche tag, Ridge is enabling Thomas’ psychological problems.
Brooke was right to say that Thomas needs serious, sustained psychological help, which includes regular therapy sessions and a medicine regimen. Ridge’s choice in believing that Forrester family unity, a work schedule, and two phone calls a week with his missing mother, Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo), is dangerously misguided as will likely play out in coming weeks and months on B&B.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Past Forgiveness Strengthens Point
As Brooke told Ridge, she forgave Thomas before. All of the many things the character Atkinson now plays once did to Rick Forrester (as last played by Jacob Young) were forgiven. Brooke even said that she loves Thomas, but simply can’t allow his actions to go unchecked because of how they impacted Hope Logan’s (Annika Noelle) life and may do so again.
Ridge dismissed Brooke’s reference of B&B’s storyline history. Devoted viewers didn’t, as they know her mention of Rick and how he was nearly killed by Thomas is the hammer that helps to nail Brooke’s logical argument in place.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Ridge Forrester Asks For The Impossible
In asking Brooke to offer even slight forgiveness to Thomas, he’s also making a demand and tying it to their marriage. That is the definition of allowing one’s children to become involved in marital issues.

Brooke shouldn’t be forced to enable Thomas in order to keep her marriage in tact. A more reasonable request would be if Ridge were to ask for Brooke’s help in getting Thomas the mental health issues he has properly diagnosed. That is a real compromise.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Thomas Forrester Remains Volatile Wild Card
Falling once nearly to his death and a second time into danger, Thomas remains the most volatile wild card on B&B. However, he’s been stable for a few weeks and it doesn’t seem like an act.
But Thomas just orchestrated a twenty-four hour scheme where he forced Hope to believe he was dead in order to make a comparative situational point. That’s abnormal and also cruel.
Brooke must stand vigilant and will be selflessly heroic if Ridge divorces her. She will have sacrificed the man she loves like no other in order to protect her own child. An increasingly sad, but real possibility because of Ridge’s hard head.
