‘Bold and the Beautiful’: Brad Bell Tricks Fans – Hope & Beth Reunion Soon?

Bold and the Beautiful showrunner Brad Bell claims Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) will not be back with baby Beth. But was he punking fans? Bell dropped hints on the red carpet at the Emmys in an interview with Michael Fairman (see video below). If you take Brad Bell at his words, it doesn’t look good. But then again, some behind-the-scenes photos from the soap hint that the writer and executive producer was misdirecting fans. There may be a blindside happy ending coming on the CBS sudser.

Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Brad Bell Speaks on Hope Logan and Baby Beth

When the B&B boss was on the red carpet, the baby story was the first thing Fairman asked. He asked Bell, “Is this going to go on for a long time?” Almost immediately, Bell said “yes”. Bell declared “This is a secret that will be held for a good amount of time” and “secrets that are held the longest are the best”.

Bell also promised that when it all comes out, “you won’t want to miss” what happens on Bold and the Beautiful. But was the head writer pulling fans’ legs with this talk? In fact, some new leaked pics from behind the scenes reveal a recast of Baby Beth and some hints that a reunion comes sooner rather than later.

B&B Spoilers: Baby Beth Recast – Older Baby to Play Hope Logan’s Daughter

New photos from CBS behind the scenes show an older baby playing with Hope Logan portrayer Annika Noelle. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease they had Annika spending time with the tot for a reason. It begs a huge question. Were the soap baby wranglers having Annika bonding with the baby because they’ll soon have scenes together?

Annika shared on her Insta story a video of her and the adorbs baby girl and captioned it ‘bonding with my new costar”. That’s another potential B&B spoiler that when Baby Beth Spencer is back from Paris, she will be in Hope Logan’s arms, not in Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). These are signs of hope for fans that desperately want mother and baby reunited.

Baby Beth Back Next Week – Does Hope Get Her Child Back Soon?

It could be that Bold and the Beautiful is trying to pull off a great blindside that will thrill fans. The last time the CBS soap really surprised fans was a few years ago with the Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) stunner. Ordinarily, on the sudser, fans see things coming a mile away. So maybe – just maybe – Brad Bell was messing with fans with his comments.

Given that there’s a new baby in the role and the Hope Logan actress is spending time with her. It could be that Hope and daughter Beth Spencer are reunited soon on B&B. Certainly, fans are constantly asking when will Hope get her baby back. Fan fury grows about this plot. The delay appalls fans. We are nearly at the six-month mark on their separation.

What’s the Fate of Hope Logan and Beth Spencer on Bold and the Beautiful?

If you think about what Brad Bell said about Hope and Beth, there could be a silver lining. When he said the secret would be held for a while on B&B, maybe he was referring to all the months that already passed. After all, Bell didn’t say it would be kept for a lot longer from now – just longer in general. Really, his words could imply many outcomes.

Let’s just hope that the show isn’t holding the Hope and Beth reunion for the next round of sweeps – because that won’t be until the end of October… One thing is for sure. B&B fans are tried of Hope Logan being tormented with her baby’s “death”. Steffy is back with “Pheobeth” next week so let’s keep fingers crossed for a rapid resolution.
