A Bold and the Beautiful leak from an inside source at CBS said Sally Spectra‘s (Courtney Hope) scam is not the original storyline. Fan’s raged at the twist revealed last week that she was faking it. Now, we’ve got some exclusive info on what’s happening with this CBS soap twist. See the latest in these soap opera spoilers.
Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Sally Spectra’s “Death” Story a Mess from the Start
B&B recaps recall that the writers let fans down from the start with the Sally Spectra terminal illness storyline. They left everyone hanging by filming outside the blinds so that viewers didn’t hear Sally’s diagnosis. That annoyed fans, and then things got worse on Bold and the Beautiful.
Recaps had Sally Spectra sad, with no hope, and Katie Logan (Heather Tom) as her only friend. Then it turned into a domino effect of Katie not keeping her word. Next, Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) and Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden) faked a break-up on Bold and the Beautiful.
Spoilers had him move Sally Spectra back into his house, and now this. Yet with the reveal that Sally set up this plot, how would she know that Katie would break her word and blab her diagnosis? She didn’t, and that’s one of the many red flags of a sloppy Bold and the Beautiful rewrite.
B&B Leaker Says Writers Initially Planned for Sally to Die – Soap Opera Spoilers
The set source at Bold and the Beautiful said this new twist with Sally Spectra is a rewrite. It’s not the original story. That makes sense because it’s all convoluted. Because Katie’s one of the few honest people on B&B. So, Sally relying on her to blab the truth made no sense.
If Sally Spectra was setting up a fake death scam, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers would have handled it differently. As it stands, it’s an obvious contradiction of the former plotline that would have put Sally into the grave. So, why would B&B change direction so rapidly? It’s about the fans.
Since Bold and the Beautiful spoilers revealed Sally’s terminal diagnosis, fans were appalled. They rallied and spoke out. So, while killing her would have spiked ratings for a moment, it could have been harmful in the long run. Now, the insider says B&B rewrote her story and she’s staying.
In fact, they may have scrapped some scenes and filmed new ones because Courtney Hope was off the soap then suddenly back to shooting.
Bold and the Beautiful Sally Slip-Up – Too Many Loose End to Snip
The problem with this B&B change is that there are too many plot holes. Viewers should be able to see the obvi signs it’s a rewrite. Sally somehow hired a friend who somehow had access to a doctor’s office. And what about the original male doctor who ran the tests on Bold and the Beautiful?
Spoilers know Katie met Sally Spectra at a real doctor’s office. This is a pretty sophisticated con for a woman on a limited budget. None of it makes sense, and that’s because it was not the original storyline. The big question is, why didn’t Bold and the Beautiful spoilers do better by Sally?
They could easily have set up a miracle cure for Sally – and then Wyatt and Flo could face the fallout from faking a break-up. Instead, B&B writers have villainized Sally Spectra. That’s not sitting well with fans. Yes, Sally stole dress designs before – but this faked death thing is not her style.
Now, we have to watch B&B try and cobble together an explanation for how she pulled this off, but none of it makes sense because it’s a rewrite. So, the pieces won’t fit. Keep watching, but get ready for more nonsense, according to the CBS soap source.
