Steffy Forrester in Horrible Pain – Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers

This week on B&B, Steffy Forrester’s still in the hospital and unconscious. Soon, she wakes and learns from her future romantic partner, Dr. Finn, that she’s in bad shape. Steffy’s father, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye), is there and comforts her as she gets some tough news.

B&B Spoilers: Pain, Painkillers & an Emmy-worthy Storyline

For too long, Steffy Forrester was a side player in the Bold and the Beautiful Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) story. So, it’s time she had her own storyline. No doubt, if Steffy spirals into addiction, it will affect most everyone on the character canvas.

The root of all Steffy’s upcoming troubles on Bold and the Beautiful spoilers is the motorcycle accident caused by Bill. This week, we’ll hear all about her extensive injuries, prognosis, and recovery. Then, Steffy gets to go home to recuperate and finds Liam and Hope there.

If that wasn’t enough, hint Bold and the Beautiful spoilers, Steffy finds herself in increasing pain – and she hides it from her family. Of course, she’s a strong woman running a company and single parenting. So, she’ll try to tough it out, but Steffy Forrester has a huge struggle ahead.
