Bold and the Beautiful spoilers promised a major character death. But Thomas Forrester‘s (Matthew Atkinson) very much alive. New B&B spoilers confirm Thomas is off in the shadows plotting against the Logans. So, how do you feel about the CBS soap fibbing to fans with bait and switch spoilers?
Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers Fraud – Why Lie to Viewers?
Often B&B spoilers hint at things that sometimes don’t play out. And there’s clever editing in weekly promo videos that imply something will happen that does not. TV Guide provided this info: “Gasp! One of the soap’s major characters dies today! (Nov 8)”.
And their info comes directly from CBS daytime. And, remember the last weekly Bold and the Beautiful spoilers promo? It said the obsession turns “deadly”. Then the latest B&B spoilers video confirmed. There’s Hope Logan (Annika Noelle)I saying she killed him.
And Friday, there’s Thomas Forrester floating in what looks like a hot tub overdue for an algae scraping. Fans were promised a death. Instead, they got a dip. Because, new Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for the week November 18-22 confirm Thomas Forrester is alive.

B&B Spoilers: Thomas Forrester’s Fine(ish) – The Only Death is Fan Expectations
Bold and the Beautiful spoilers for the week November 21 have Thomas Forrester moving to the next phase of his antic Logan plan. Meanwhile, Thomas spends time with his dad and sister. But, they’re concerned, say B&B spoilers.
Because, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers indicate Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) try to do right by Thomas. That could be because he’s unhinged – or physically injured from the acid incident.
Clearly, his not dead. And that means the official spoilers released were not honest about events to come. It certainly feels to many fans like Bold and the Beautiful jumped the shark last week. The acid set-up recalled the Joker from Batman or Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Bold and the Beautiful: Is Spoiler Justified Since Hope Thinks She Killed Thomas?
B&B could defend its misleading spoiler with the excuse that Hope seems to think she killed Thomas Forrester. But, in the end, it feels a bit insulting to viewers. It’s hard to imagine that even one Bold and the Beautiful watcher thought Thomas died.
It was already ridiculous that Thomas Forrester survived a fall off the cliff. Then, B&B dragged a vat of acid into the fashion house with a sketchy and implausible explanation. so, fans saw this “twist” coming a mile off. All that was soapy fun.
But to announce a major character death then fail to deliver is beyond the pale – especially for a soap with a loyal fanbase. What do you think? Did the CBS sudser cross a line fibbing to fans?
