The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) is going through a sobering process. His extended absence is allows for a digestion of all that’s happened since he returned from New York with Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri), following the death of Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey).
Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) had been the object of Thomas’ obsession since last spring. In time he manipulated his way into marriage, but never realized Hope’s love.
Now, after being humiliated in front of his family, Thomas must take a vastly different course if he hopes to advance personally. However, it will take time for Atkinson’s character to develop his humanity skills.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Villain Push Runs Its Course
Recasting the Thomas character and having him assail everyone imaginable created juicy drama. His pursuit of Hope, battle with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), criminal actions against Emma Barber (Nia Sioux), challenge of Brooke Logan’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) presence in his father’s life, repeated betrayal of Ridge Forrester’s (Thorsten Kaye) trust, and lack of parental responsibility created numerous interconnected storylines.
Viewers will accept far-fetched scenarios, if they are intriguing and lead to a logical endpoint, which is what the failed Thoe wedding ceremony and Thomas’ exit appears to have been. But fresh takes are also needed.

Ridge appears to be interested in forming a true relationship with Shauna Fulton (Denise Richards), but hasn’t filed divorce paperwork yet. Brooke was initially thrilled that she was vindicated by Thomas’ self-reveal during the Thoe ceremony, but the exposed Brill kiss derailed momentum Bridge regained.

Thomas is certainly considering his recent decisions. With whatever he concludes, Hope can’t remain his focus.
B&B’s writers are primed to develop who Atkinson’s character can become. A quick turnaround wouldn’t be accepted by the audience, or the people who Thomas knows in Los Angeles, California.
He could reestablish himself professionally, as Eric Forrester (John McCook) is known for giving second chances. With a continued source of earned income Thomas could also pay rent, while seeking structured visits with Douglas. Having this infamous persona pursue normalcy, instead of drama, can be uplifting.
