Bold and the Beautiful spoilers confirm Thomas Forrester will be back because Matthew Atkinson‘s still on contract at the CBS sudser. The disgraced Forrester heir’s been MIA since his disastrous two-bride wedding, but Thomas is due back. When he does, there are two paths B&B can take his character. Which one do you want to see?
Will Bold and the Beautiful Wimp Out Thomas Forrester?
B&B writers could try and redeem Thomas Forrester and have him working to regain everyone’s trust. It’s a problematic way to go, though, because Thomas already tried to convince people that he was a changed man and not obsessed with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle).
But, Bold and the Beautiful could trot out a redemption story for Thomas Forrester. They could show him wimpy, in tears, and begging his dad and his granddad for forgiveness and another chance. And how can they say no? They could even put Thomas in therapy to get help. Although, it didn’t work in the past.
Remember in Bold and the Beautiful recaps, Thomas Forrester was reportedly getting counseling from his mom Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo). But, it didn’t seem to work because Thomas remained stuck on his ex. So, will they make him sad and ashamed? That looks pretty dull.

B&B Needs a Huge Villain – Thomas Fills the Role?
Bold and the Beautiful spoilers know the storylines desperately need a villain. And Thomas Forrester could be a great one if he wasn’t playing nice. Perhaps after Hope humiliated him and stole his son, he’ll finally quit playing around and get vengeful.
After all, Bold and the Beautiful recaps remind that Hope stole Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) and installed Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) as his defacto dad. So, Thomas Forrester needs to come after them, right? Sure, he was a bad dad, but who isn’t on a soap?
Dollar Bill slept with his son’s wife and almost blew him up in a building. And, Thomas’ dad and granddad on Bold and the Beautiful are a mess with being with the same woman and lots more ick. So, Thomas Forrester could go all-out for revenge and always get redemption later. All these other characters did that.
What’s Next for the Disgraced Forrester on Bold and the Beautiful?
Spoilers confirm we won’t see new episodes for two to three months, and then the plot picks back up with Sally Spectra’s (Courtney Hope) fake dying storyline. But once she’s outed, maybe she’ll work with Thomas Forrester. They’d be a great vengeful power pair.
One thing that every soap needs is a bad guy. Right now, Bold and the Beautiful doesn’t have a decent villain. Sad scamming Sally isn’t a villain. She’s only doing Felony Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden) wrong, and she’s a lying baby stealer. So, that’s not a big bad wolf storyline.
We’ve still got weeks of classic episodes (i.e., reruns) ahead until Bold and the Beautiful comes back with new episodes. When it does, wouldn’t it be exciting to see an unapologetic Thomas Forrester going into full villain mode? Imagine how exciting that would be on the CBS sudser. Wait and see.
