The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Time Jump In Los Angeles on B&B?

The production shutdown impacted ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ in mid-March. The last new episodes were shown in April, which meant that a plan to fill the lack of new programming had to be quickly developed.

Repeat episodes are allowing devoted fans to relive dramatic storylines, while also enabling newer viewers to familiarize themselves with the show’s history. No new episodes are currently allowed to be produced at the studio, which forces B&B to be on the air indefinitely without traditional new content. That is clearly a very steep challenge.

The unknown lag time until the next new episodes can be recorded means that prepared scripts, or ones that are being written, will simply pick up all storylines where they left off in April, or some form of time jump will be created.

Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Daytime Dilemma Initially Addressed With Classic Shows

A two-part special, ‘Becoming Bold and Beautiful’, which had never been shown in B&B’s daytime slot, focused on a Monte Carlo location shoot that took place earlier this decade. Those behind the scenes shows were followed by the episodes that were created as part of a theme week.

Other theme weeks, that focus on certain characters or particular storylines are set to follow. Many familiar faces will be seen during these repeat episodes, which will help to fill the need for programming.

Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Jumping Ahead In Los Angeles

The actors will look slightly different, as all human beings will, assuming that B&B isn’t able to return to production for a number of months. That alone would create a visible change from where the last scenes finished. But considering that a genre is a form of escapist entertainment, it’s not likely that any devoted fan would have a legitimate beef about visual continuity.

However, the first new script could allow a time jump to whenever the present day will be. Doing so could allow the characters to actually mention the virus effects, or for its impact to be worked into existing storylines. However, that choice is risky, as fans tune in to see something other than reality in this serialized format.

Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – What A Skip Could Bring

Assuming a time jump of a number of months happens. Well, then something will have happened with Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden). Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) would have either caught Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) and Doctor Penny Escobar (Monica Ruiz) trying to move Flo out of his living room, or they would have already done so months ago. Either scenario probably would have created different outcomes.

Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) managed to retrieve Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) from Las Vegas, Nevada. But did she win him back in the meantime, or did Ridge finalize the ‘Bridge’ divorce and move on with Shauna Fulton (Denise Richards)? That’s just another of many questions that would be answered by fast-forwarding this version of LA if a time jump happens on B&B.

    I hope fans of the Soap are enjoying the repeat episodes for now!

    I’m enjoying the older episodes.

    One thing is certain–they are building up suspense with the hiatus. I hope they hit it out of the park when they return, the fans deserve to be wowed and rewarded for all this.

    I’m sure the folks who have watched B&B for decades are enjoying this. I find it confusing because I have only watch it with the cast that is now: Brooke, Ridge, Katy, Bill, Eric, etc. So unless someone mentions a name, I’m not sure who some of them are. I am getting a kick out of the older scripts & music though. Hope they can be back soon.

      It’s an interesting trip back for longtime viewers and the newer viewers get a glimpse into previous story lines and previous cast.

    I still hope that time jump tales in Los Angeles will fill in the gap on the last original episode and the new episode. I still hope that we will see the new cast along with the old cast. Too bad that the B&B didn’t end the Emma plot right. I still believe that Thomas switche the car that he was driving for another Forrester Creation company car. It explain that his car didn’t have any evidence in the car that was in any kind of accident.

    That is an interesting possiblity. However, I think it might work well for both Bold and Beautiful and The Young and The Restless, because perhaps that way if they just film short flashbacks to answer the questions left by the cliffhangers it will satisfy those who didn’t or weren’t able to tape the last new episodes and save them.

    A time jump would allow the writers to fix the Sally story line misstep. They can film snippets to explain what happened with Sally, Flo, Brooke and Ridge, etc. and pick up in a better place. B&B was painting themselves into a corner with Sally and Thomas. Now they have the opportunity to fix all that was wrong with the show and start over.

    I know a lot of people didn’t like the time jump on Days of Our Lives, but I loved it! Got rid of stagnant storylines and built up suspense. I actually had to pay attention to figure out what happened during the time jump. So, if Bold and the Beautiful were to do one, they would need to do it right. But I could see some interesting possibilities!
