The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers promise Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) is due for a rude awakening from Thorne Forrester (Ingo Rademacher). It’s about his youngest son, Will Spencer (Finnegan George), and a brewing custody battle. Katie Logan (Heather Tom) gave Bill Spencer every chance to be a decent dad, but he failed. Thorne Forrester is ready to take over Bill’s spot in Will’s life, and Dollar Bill will soon explode.
Bill Spencer’s Pathetic Past as a Papa
All B&B fans should know that Bill Spencer is a disappointment as a dad to his two older sons. He was such a lout that Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and Wyatt Spencer’s (Darin Brooks) moms hid their children from him. Neither Liam’s mother nor Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer) acknowledged him as their baby daddy. And Quinn actively lied to Wyatt to try and stop him from knowing Bill Spencer was his bio-father.
When two out of your three baby mamas shun you like that, it’s a sure sign you’re a crap dad. Bold and the Beautiful history showed that Bill had no role in Liam or Wyatt’s life as kids and as adults, he’s been a jerk. Remember, it wasn’t too long ago that Bill punched Liam right in the face! Then he disowned both the older boys and is still on shaky ground with them. Liam didn’t even invite Bill to his wedding.
Katie tells Bill: “Don’t you understand that the best thing – the most valuable thing – you can give our son is you? Your love and your attention. A healthy relationship with his father.”

Thorne Forrester – A Much Finer Father for Will Spencer
By comparison, Thorne was always an active and caring parent to his daughter Alexandria “Aly” Forrester (Ashlyn Pearce). After Darla Forrester’s (Schae Harrison) death, Thorne stepped up to be a single dad, raising Aly alone. Thorne abandoned his plans to marry Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) when Aly couldn’t accept her as her step-mom (because she killed Aly’s mother).
They later reunited, but Thorne Forrester was always thinking of his daughter. Even when Aly was going off the rails and turned into a lunatic, he was there for his daughter. Unfortunately, Aly kept going crazier and wound up dead at Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) hands. He was a great dad to Alexandria, and loved her deeply. He’s also be a good step-dad to Will Spencer!

Bold and the Beautiful – Thorne Makes Katie an Offer
Next week, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers from Soap Central indicate that Bill makes another bad parenting choice. Katie encouraged him to be an active parent, but he’ll let Will Spencer and Katie down again. Justin Barber (Aaron D Spears) pressures Bill to attend a business meeting and skip out on time with Will Spencer. Of course, Bill does that and bails on Will which upsets Katie.
Thorne sees his opening and tells Katie to pursue sole custody of her son, Will Spencer, to protect him from further hurt at Bill’s hands. Not only that but Thorne says he’d love to be a father to her son. He’s ready to step in and have an instant family with Katie, and the offer is tempting. Katie decides to move forward, and the week after that, confirmed spoilers say Bill explodes.
Thorne vs Bill – who gets Katie and Will Spencer?
Bold and the Beautiful spoilers show Bill won’t lose another son even if he’s totally in the wrong. The question is what Bill will do about it. Will he rage at Katie and make threats while lawyering up? Or it could be that Bill decides to romance Katie and shut Thorne out of her life completely. In the past, Dollar Bill could always lure Katie back to his side, even when he was awful.
Bill might think he can do it again, but hopefully, Katie’s too wise to fall for his seduction game. It would be a nice change of pace for Katie to have two men fighting for her after having Bill push her aside so often. But if Katie’s smart, she’ll shut down Dollar Bill and go for more reliable Thorne. Plus, there’s the fact that Bill is still obsessed with Steffy, so Katie would be a fool to fall for him again.
What do you think? Should Katie stick with Thorne and push Bill out of her life and little Will Spencer’s? Check back with Soap Dirt often for the latest Bold and the Beautiful spoilers and news.
